===================================================== Download Quest: The Retired Hunter ===================================================== I will kill 10000 monsters before I die! Client: Donoph Quest: An old hunter, Donoph, is about to die. Defeat 99 monsters to fulfill his dream. Reward: 8000 Meseta Donoph - Are you [NAME]? Nice to meet you, I'm Donoph. It's very simple. You help me defeat monsters. That's it. I'm a hunter, too. I worked very hard and killed lots of monsters. My life's ambition was to kill 10000 monsters! I almost succeeded when I retired just 10 years ago. The last monster I killed was my 9901th. I had only 99 more to go! I know I won't live much longer. I want my dream to come true. I can't die a happy man unless I kill 99 more monsters. Understand? [If you say "??"...] - What? You're exactly the same as the other numbskulls. Cough, cough. It's OK. All people think differently. Now, listen. I only have 30 minutes to live, starting now. Trust me. I know this because, well I just do! It means that I have to kill 99 monsters before 30 minutes are up. And... Oh, no, nothing. I'll go down now. Please come later. Cough, cough! I'm OK, thank you. Ah, by the way... if you could... Please don't tell anybody about this. OK? [If you say "!!"...] - Good, good. I think you understand what it is to be a MAN. Now, listen. I only have 30 minutes to live, starting now. Trust me. I know this because, well I just do! It means that I have to kill 99 monsters before 30 minutes are up. And... Oh, no, nothing. I'll go down now. Please come later. Cough, cough! I'm OK, thank you. Ah, by the way... if you could... Please don't tell anybody about this. OK? Alicia Baz - Hi [NAME]... How have you been? You were with Donoph. You don't have to be secretive with me. His best friend was on "Pioneer 1". Heathclif. They were like brothers. So I think Donoph wanted to stand on the same ground with him. - ... ... ... He needs your help. Nurse in Town - DI...di...DID you SEE Mr. Donoph? Oops, I'm sorry! I'm...I'm a bit nervous... Sorry for shouting out so suddenly. Mr. Donoph is an old hunter. Did you see him? Of course not... Thanks. Where is he? He must stay in bed... - Where has he gone? Tekker in Town - People die without exception. So people struggle to live their lives. Don't you think so? [Beam down to Ruins 3... Meet Donoph there...] Donoph - Ah, you came. I was a little worried that you might not come. Cough, cough! (Breath) No, I'm OK! I must live until I kill 10000 monsters! Ha, ha, ha! Now, let's go! - Ah ha! This is going really well. I'm just mowing them down! - 10! - 20! - 30! - 40! - 50! - Half way done... There should only be about 50 more enemies left to finish off! - 60! - Cough! Cough! Almost done... Almost there. I've got to hang on! - 70! - 80! - 90! - 95! - 96! - 97! - 98! - Cough! Cough! Finally... I killed 10000 of them... Thank you. Now I can go ...cough! Cough! You go back to the Guild to receive your reward. I'll stay here. I have lived... enough. ...Heath... Non-quest related dialogue: Donoph - Gyaaah! [when hit] - Mph! [when hit] - I'm still OK! [when hit] [Return to Pioneer 2.] Alicia Baz - I think it was better for him than sleeping in a comfortable bed. Thanks for taking care of him. Nurse in Town - Did he say that? ...Mr. Donoph... But I'm a nurse. I can't let him walk around while I know about it! Tekker in Town - He wasn't just an old hunter. He's special! [If you answered Donoph with "!!" at the beginning of the quest, then after you speak to Alicia upon returning to Pioneer 2, Forest 2 is available from the teleporter. Transport down and make your way to a computer terminal...] Computer terminal - Main computer access... Access denied. .. Local computer access... Access OK. .. Search Heathcliff... ... Search result: 1 Heathcliff Flowen ...W... in 084 year, died There is a message. Do you want to play the message? [If you choose YES...] - Start playing the message. I know who is watching this... I decided to leave a little ahead of you. It's sad that we can't see each other, but I don't want to tempt fate. It's very peaceful here. It's boring because it's too peaceful. Donof... This is not the place for you. Especially, for you... Ha ha ha My daughter will take care of you. Don't cause any problems, old man. You are her favorite. Ever since she was a small child, I'd imagine. ... ... ... And, Zook, I know you want "out," but don't do anything stupid. You're such a stubborn guy. Even when we were young. Well... I did something that I'm not really proud of... We are so old now. I hope you understand. Don't let that girl worry about you so much. We still have a lot to talk about, but I guess it'll be a while. See you again... over there. ... ... ... Finish playing. [If you choose NO...] - Go back to normal function. Computer terminal [after listening to the message] - Go back to normal function. [Return to Pioneer 2] Alicia Baz - Heath adopted me. He didn't want to get on board Pioneer 1... He refused orders to leave with Pioneer 1 several times. When he was finally forced to go, he told me just before he left that evolution and damnation may be two sides of the same coin. It's all up to the people living in it... We may be in the same situation... Narrator - You've been awarded 18000 Meseta.@winend [sic]
Where is Orakio? It's been 1,000 years, but I'd know his black sword anywhere!
