Dungeon: Temple of Kiltia
[Ashley walks into room. Rosencrantz hits him.]
Rosencrantz: Look at you!
[Kicks Ashley in ribs]
Rosencrantz: This ... This is your "successor?"
Open your eyes, Sydney. I am the one!
Hardin is gone. Old man Bardorba's next, I fear.
And, Sydney, your time will soon come, I think.
You'd give the city to the Cardinal's motley rabble?
I think not! Not after the hardships I've endured!
I'm sure you agree, Sydney.
It is time. I will carry on the legacy in your name.
Now, the rites! Name me your successor!!
Sydney: I name you ...
"Worm", as you crawl through the dust.
[Rosencrantz slashes off one of Sydney's arms]
Rosencrantz: Then keep your immortality. Here, let me lighten your burden!
Ah ha ha ha!
[Sydney stands up, and reattaches his arm, slowly.]
Rosencrantz: Ha ... heh? What!?
Sydney: I gave my limbs to the gods.
Perhaps I'll add yours to the offering!
Rosencrantz: When will you learn your power is useless against me?
[Rosencrantz is holding a phantom arm, one of Sydney's. He tosses it aside, which breaks the glamorie, revealing it as Rosencrantz's sword.]
Sydney: [from suddenly behind him] Do not forget where you are standing, Rosencrantz.
Rosencrantz: Y-you have deceived me!?
Sydney: I've done nothing so base.
You deceived yourself with a boy's daydreams.
Fear not, sweet Rosencrantz. I will not kill you.
[Rosencrantz looks up to see the statue of Kali animate... the last thing he will ever see.]
Sydney: I give you the city, Riskbreaker! All its power -- all to you!
Make haste! Join me!
Already, your powers are close to readiness! Come!
Ashley: Keep your accursed city! Where's Merlose!?
Sydney: You may be able to save them -- your wife and child!!
[He turns to go]
Sydney: Should you meet them, repent, Ashley, repent!!
