Sara spots ruins a ways into the distance and urges the party to explore! When they arrive, they quickly catch up to Rita exploring the ruins for ancient technologies. With their perfect timing, Rita requests that the party help escort her and defeat any monsters that might try to interrupt her research. The party agrees and takes the opportunity to also explore the reasons. Not too long afterwards, Remi shows up in an...interesting fashion.

- Do not sell any of the special drops. All are needed to forge the armor.
- The base equipment was given out as a log-in bonus.

|Sara||Check out that structure off in the distance! What is that? Ruins, maybe?|
|Lippy|| I fear that it is too far away for me to make out, Lady Sara. |
The Great Savior seems to be struggling to see it as well.
|Sara|| Ah, sorry. But I bet it's something! Let's go get a closer look. |
It really is ruins!
I'm no expert, but they look pretty old to me. I wonder what era we're looking at here? Should we investigate?
|Lippy||Look there, Lady Sara. We appear not to be the only visitors to these ruins. Hmm... She cuts a familiar figure...|
|Rita|| You guys! Oh, this is perfect! |
I want to investigate these ruins, but this place is lousy with monsters. You up for pulling some escort duty?
|Sara|| Rita! That sounds fine to me. We were hoping to explore ourselves. |
So what exactly are you looking for? I bet you wouldn't have come all this way if it wasn't something good...
|Rita|| Walk with me and I'll clue you in. |
I've heard rumors than you can find lost technologies from the era of ancient magic in here.
I've been too busy to see for myself, but I finally managed get down here to investigate.
But that doesn't mean I have all day to chat! Let's be quick about this.
|Sara||Lippy, I have this nagging feeling that there's something I've forgotten...|
|Lippy||That's most peculiar, as I do as well! But I just can't remember what it is that I've forgotten...|
|Sara||Well, maybe it'll come to us as we walk?|
|Sara||What's the deal with these ruins? The deeper we get, the less ruins-y they look.|
|Lippy||Indeed. The interior and the exterior look nothing alike.|
|Rita|| It looks like this is some sort of laboratory. Things just got interesting! |
Hmmm... This equipment here looks pretty ancient.
|Sara||There's a book over here.|
|Rita|| Let me see that! |
Huh... They could really do that, huh? Wow. The tech from that era was really something!
|Sara||What does the book say, Rita?|
|Rita||I'll run it down for you...|
|Rita||...So in other words, with a Flare Stone, Flare Orb, and Flare Soul, we could upgrade this old armor!|
|Sara||Psst, Lippy... Did that explanation make sense to you?|
|Lippy|| Only the last sentence, I fear. |
But it was a testament to Lady Rita's grasp of the topic that she was able to render it into layman's terms for us!
|Rita||Yeah, I could tell from your glazed-over faces that none of the technical stuff was getting through.|
|Sara||Sorry. It's just not really my thing...|
|Rita|| Don't feel bad about it. I doubt anyone other than me understands this stuff. |
Anyway, back to this old armor.
Apparently it was so powerful that they did all this just to contain it...
I wonder what power would justify all this work they spent sealing it away?
Perhaps the more interesting question is, how did they even go about devising a seal that could contain such—
|Rita|| Damn it! Shut up! Can't a girl conjecture in peace? |
Sara, I want you and your friends to help me get those things out of here!
|Rita|| Stupid monsters. I was really onto something there. |
Well, once I get my head back together, the first step will be finding that Flare Stone and Flare Orb.
Luckily, there's a good description of both items in the tex—
|Remi||Rita! Look out!|
|Rita||Remi! Are you okay?|
|Remi||Is Rita safe?!|
|Rita||I'm right here. See for yourself! Now, what are you even doing here? I told you it would be too dangerous!|
|Remi||What I'm doing here is acting as your guardian! It's my duty to protect you no matter how great the danger!|
|Rita||Again with this...|
|Sara|| Rita, please try to calm down! |
She's just as worried about you as you were worried about her!
|Rita||You think I was worried about her? I just told her not to come because I didn't want her getting in the way!|
|Rita||I'd send you back, but it would be too dangerous for you to go alone. So I guess we're stuck with you.|
|Remi||You mean I can stay? Thanks, Ri—bwaaah!|
|Rita||How did you... There isn't even anything here to trip over! Ugh. This is going exactly as well as I expected.|
|Sara||Remi, did you just drop this?|
|Remi||Oh, thank you!|
|Sara||What is this, anyway? I've never see anything like it.|
|Rita||Hey, hold up. Remi! Where did you get that?!|
|Remi||I found it in a room on the way here. I'd never seen anything quite like it, so I thought you might want to study it.|
|Sara||It's really beautiful.|
|Remi||You can have it afterwards if you like!|
|Rita||The hell she can! That's a Flare Stone!|
|Sara||What?! This thing? This is how we'll unseal the armor...?|
|Rita|| Well, it's not enough to unlock the armor's full power. |
We need that Flare Orb I was telling you about. It should be within these ruins somewhere, so let's go find it!
|Sara||The monsters are getting stronger.|
|Rita||Better make sure you stay with the group, Remi.|
|Lippy||Could that be our Flare Orb over there? It seems to be well secured, suggesting it's an item of some importance.|
|Rita||That does seem a little conspicuous...|
|Remi||It really does!|
|Rita||But I'm not so sure about this. There was nothing about this mechanism in the book. Let's take a closer look.|
|Sara||Is that some sort of button there?|
|Remi||Oh, that must open it! Let's give it a push!|
|Rita||Wait, I wouldn't—|
|Rita||Remi! Don't ever do anything without my leave again! That button practically had "TRAP" stenciled all over it!|
|Remi||I'm so sorry, Rita. The thought never even occurred to me!|
|Rita||That's basically the problem, yes.|
|Sara||Don't be so hard on her. If she hadn't pressed the button, we might never have gotten the Flare Orb!|
|Lippy|| As well as the map to the Flare Soul that was in a golem's possession. |
Perhaps they were made to watch over this armor?
|Rita||That's a reasonable hypothesis. Now, the Flare Soul is... Let's see...|
|Remi||Let me check the map. It'll give me a chance to redeem myself!|
|Rita||Do you even know how to read a map?|
|Remi|| I know that I can try! Now, I guess we're... |
Ummm... Where are we, now?
|Sara||This might not be the greatest idea...|
|Remi||Okay everyone, follow me! This way!|
|Sara||You certainly seem excited about this, Remi.|
|Remi||Naturally! I'm eager to prove to Rita that I can be a help and not just a hindrance.|
|Sara||Well if there's anything I can do to help, let me know!|
|Remi||Thanks, Sara! You're such a nice person.|
|Sara||I'm really not. I just feel like I was partially responsible for what happened earlier.|
|Remi||But I was the one who immediately pushed a suspicious button for no good reason! It isn't your fault at all!|
|Rita||If you two hens are done clucking, maybe Remi could look at the map and actually tell us where to go?|
|Remi||Oh, of course. Right away, Rita!|
|Remi|| Hmmmm... According to the map, we need to make a right turn here, and then continue straight ahead. |
All right everyone, turn right!
|Rita||Remi! Watch your feet!|
|Sara||Remi, are you okay?|
|Remi||Y-Yeah... But there isn't supposed to be a dead end here...|
|Rita||From all the junk strewn around, it looks like this room is some sort of garbage dump.|
|Lippy||Everyone! The noise attracted monsters!|
|Remi||Argh, I've messed up again! I'll handle this!|
|Rita|| Not by yourself you won't. Stand down. |
Sara, (user)! We're taking down these monsters!
|Rita|| So, that happened. |
What's the deal, Remi? Why'd you lead us into a dead end?
|Remi|| I can't figure that out myself! There was supposed to be a passage here. |
Oh... sorry. I was holding the map upside down.
|Lippy|| Would you mind if I took a look at that map, Lady Remi? |
It appears we've already passed the room where the Flare Soul is kept.
|Rita||You can imagine my surprise.|
|Remi||I'm so sorry.|
|Rita||Lippy, you're on map duty now. Remi, you focus on not tripping over random objects as you walk.|
|Lippy||Very well. Now, if everyone would be so kind as to follow me...|
|Lippy||Assuming I've read this map correctly, the Flare Soul should be around here.|
|Remi||There's something creepy about this room. Maybe it's those giant statues...|
|Sara||Could it be in that chest, Rita?|
|Rita||I think so! That's exactly the way it was described in the book.|
|Rita||Do it, Remi.|
|Remi||Do... what? You don't want me to open it, do you?!|
|Rita||That's exactly what I want. Just without all the backtalk.|
|Remi|| After what happened last time, I've been resisting the urge to touch anything... |
But now, at last, I have a chance to redeem myself! No matter the danger, I will comply with your orders, Rita!
You'll see how useful I can be!
|Remi||The golems... I knew it!|
|Rita||All right Sara, (user)... Here we go!|
|Rita||We've assembled all the pieces at last. Now we can restore its true power...|
|Sara||The armor, it's...!|
|Rita||They certainly had some fascinating technologies back in the era of ancient magic.|
|Lippy||There's something unsettling about this armor. I wonder if that's because of the power that had been sealed away.|
|Rita||Well, we're done here.|
|Sara||Wait, you're just leaving? Aren't you going to take the armor?|
|Rita||I'm only interested in the technology, and I'm satisfied with what I've seen. The armor's yours if you want it.|
|Sara||Wow, thanks! We'll take good care of it.|
|Rita||You'll need it. I was thinking I'd hire you guys the next time I need an escort for one of my research projects.|
|Remi||R-Rita... Does that mean... I'm fired?!|
|Rita||No one said anything about that! The two of us just aren't quite strong enough. We could use a little more help.|
|Remi||Oh, phew. That's a relief!|
|Rita|| Anyway, we'll be in touch when we need you. Stay safe until then! |
I'm getting out of here.
|Remi||R-Rita? Wait for meeeeee!!!|
|I'll Prove My Worth to You, Rita! ──fin──|
