Rif: I did it!
Murno: Amazing! Rif!
V.E: Dammit... for me to have actually lost…
-Seems that passively lying around like a dog in the summertime has dulled my skills. How pathetic…
Rif: Master, it's only because you're injured…
Killfith: Honestly, get a grip... between the you right now and how you were back then, it's no contest.
-Unless you think you can get that bad just by passively taking care of the house for a short while?
V.E: Heh... Thank you, Killfith. That was very sweet of you.
Killfith: N—no it wasn’t! Don't be an idiot!
V.E: Regardless of the circumstances, the two of you had sufficient strength to win against me.
-You've become strong, Rif.
Rif: Tha... Thank you, Master!
V.E: It’s probably thanks to Killfith, though.
Killfith: Hmph... obviously.
Rif: What's that supposed to mean?!
V.E: However, since you were able to win against me, I suppose I'll have to let you guys tag along.
V.E: If that's all settled, then you guys better get ready to leave soon. Murno too.
Murno: I'm already prepared, Miss V.E.
V.E: Good work, Murno! Then let's head off to the gate. Don't doddle, Rif.
Rif: Got it! We'll meet at the gate!
(They begin to walk away, but V.E stops abruptly and sweatdrops)
V.E: Tssaah~… I just realized, it wasn’t just Rif, but Killfith and Murno…
-I was taking on the sword-edge of three different people’s desires. No wonder it had such an enormous force… although…
-It seems like that kid has found someone to fight for. I’ll bet you’re happy too, Rob…
Murno: Um… Miss V.E?
V.E: Ah, sorry, I got distracted. Let’s go, shall we?
Rif: Okay! We have to make sure we're all set to go to the Town of Prosban!
Killfith: Then why do you keep slowing us down?
Rif: That's right, Murno's waiting at the gate, too.
Killfith: It—it has nothing to do with her!
In the next area, Rif is mysteriously drawn to a glowing blue sword to endure a series of informative blurbs.
Info: If you use the item “Portal Shard” inside of a dungeon, you can instantly return to the portal in the last village or town you visited.
-To go back to the dungeon, simply face the activated portal and push the A button and you will return to wherever you left off.
-An activated portal is good for one round trip, and will shut down once you leave the village or town.
(In front of the Gate)
V.E: Are you ready to go?
-I was born ready! >Road Trip!
-Um, just wait a bit longer…
Road Trip!V.E: Then it’s time to depart. Ready, Murno?
V.E: Then as I've asked, Rif, Killfith.
Killfith: Tch... how annoying.
V.E: All right. Let's go!
Info: This teleporter, when activated, can be used to instantaneously move from place to place.
-To activate, simply stand above the teleporter and push the A button to strike it with your hammer.
-This particular teleporter is currently not activated.
V.E: Set your sights on the Town of Prosban! Now, everyone, the road leading up to town may look nice, but don't forget there are Strays everywhere.
Rif: Master, if you have no sense of direction, how are we ever going to get there?
-All of that time spent training for the match would've been a waste if we just got lost.
V.E: What are you talking about! I already told you, that was only a test!
Rif: I know, I know. This time it was just a test, but we can do the real thing later!
V.E: Geez, what am I gonna do with you...
Murno: I'm starting to get a little concerned...
Killfith: Just try to ignore them.
They eventually come upon a fallen bridge...
Rif: Aniki did say the bridge had collapsed...
V.E: It must have been pretty terrible, huh. The earthquake, I mean.
Murno: Even to this kind of place…
Rif: I guess it can't be helped. We'll just have to find a detour.
