Fort Condor - Huge Materia


Because Fort Condor is optional until this point, it is possible for this to be the party's first visit.

If this is the party's first visit to Fort Condor...

Man
We've been fighting the Shinra for a long time at this battlefield.
Even now, we're still settled in for a long war with them.
If you aren't in a hurry, would you help us fight them?
Listen, we don't want to push you but, if you're in the middle of something, why don't you finish that first?

Cid
- Like to help but...
- I guess we'll help you

Like to help but...

Man
All right then...... Take care of yourselves...

I guess we'll help you

Man
Really!? Then go on up and they'll fill you in on the details.

Cid and the others go inside. They find the man by himself in the shed at the top of the fort, looking out the window.

Man
Do you guys want to see it, too?

Cid
What is it?

Man
The condors. They're huge. Come on, have a look.

Cid has a look out the window, seeing a huge condor nesting close to the Mako reactor that sits atop Fort Condor's hill.

Man
What do ya think? Awesome, huh?

Man with Hat
Hmmn, now this is something, I never thought anyone would ever climb up here.
Any minute now, this will be a battlefield against Shinra. You'd better get down before you get involved.

Cid
A battlefield, we can't overlook that.

Barret
Shinra? The hell those jackasses doing here?

Nanaki
Shinra again.

Yuffie
The Shinra? Here too?

Cait Sith
......

Vincent
What do you mean by that?

Man with Hat
It appears you have a problem with Shinra, too. After all, you climbed up here.
Why not listen to what I have to say for a moment?

Cid
All right, talk on!

Man with Hat
Do you know what's at the top of this mountain?

Barret
Huh? Something's up there?

Yuffie
Look close, old man.

Cait Sith
Yeah, come to think of it there was something.

Cid
No matter how you look at it, that's a reactor. And on top of it, is that the Condor?

Man with Hat
I can see you're very perceptive. Yes, it's a reactor and a condor.
Looks like there's a special materia up in the Mako reactor.
Then came the condor, so Shinra dispatched the troops to get rid of it.
Their plan is to get rid of the condor and the people on this mountain and to get the materia from the Mako Reactor.
Unfortunately, we don't have the ability to fight Shinra ourselves.
That's why we have hired soldiers to help us.
As our sponsor you can help us with a contribution or by fighting along side of us...
What do you think? You want to join us in our fight?

Cid
If you go that far, what can I say. Well, we'll be able to do something if you leave it up to us.

Barret
Hey! We'll come to the rescue.

Nanaki
Got it. I'm gonna lend a hand, too.

Yuffie
Okay, it's settled. We're gonna get the materia, right?

Cait Sith
Well then, let's do our best.

Vincent
That's the right decision.

Man with Hat
I'm begging you. Please prevent the reactor from being destroyed and the condors from being killed.

They go on up to the shack.

Man
So shall I let you in on our strategy?
The enemy is targeting this mountain's reactor and will be climbing to reach it.
We must set a trap and hire soldiers to protect this place.
Well, this is all we have...... this village doesn't have any money. Even if we wanted to fight, our hands are tied 'cause we're broke.
To hire one soldier, we need 400 gil. So, if we hire 20 soldiers, we must have 8000 gil.
That is, we would like you to use your own money to hire these soldiers, buy the trap, set it up and give the commands.
We know that we're asking is selfish. We sent our wives and kids to another village. We are resigned to our fate.
Let's get back to square one. If the enemy penetrates this shed, you'll have to fight them off immediately.
I know it's a one shot deal, but I'm asking for your help.
Now then, is there anything you wish to ask?

Cid
- Enough

Man
Ready?

Cid
- Wait
- Okay, ready
- Hear more

If the party has visited Fort Condor before...

Man with Hat
You've come at a good time. Shinra's changing its strategy now.
It seems that Shinra will destroy the reactor and then take out the materia that's inside.

Barret
Man, we're walking on dangerous ground. We can't lose now!

Nanaki
We can't afford to be beaten!

Yuffie
If we lose here, all the materia we gathered will be for nothing.

Cait Sith
You're right. If we lose here, we'll be in great danger.

Vincent
We must protect this area.

Cid
Damn! I guess we have to protect this area, too.

They go on up to the shack.

Man
The situation has changed. Looks like the enemy is set to attack. If we lose here, it's over.
Our lives are in your hands. We're counting on you.
Ready?

Cid
- Wait
- Okay, ready
- Hear more

Once the party agrees to fight...

Man
This is the deciding battle. The enemy numbers more than ever before.

A lengthy battle with Shinra troops ensues.

If Cid and the others defeat the Shinra...

Man
YES! We did it! That was wonderful! Thank you!! I doubt Shinra will attack now.

He laughs, then looks outside.

A, arrgghh......

Outside, the condor's egg begins to crack, there is a blaze of light, and the condor falls from atop the reactor. The egg hatches.

Man
Th, that light just now......
The condor......
The eggs......
What!?
Would you go outside and see what it was?

Cid goes outside to investigate. He picks up the Phoenix materia and watches the hatchling condor fly off. Cid goes back inside.

Man
Gone...
Be sure and report to my father, too.
Oh, it's you. Thanks a lot.

Cid goes down to report to the father.

Man with Hat
Everyone, thanks. I really mean it. Thanks.
Although there isn't anything we can give you, we'll make sure you can stop in and stay any time, so be sure to drop by.
Yes, yes, and there's one thing I forgot to tell you......

Received key item "Huge Materia"!

Cid
Huh? What's this?

Barret
Damn man, it's Huge Materia.

Yuffie
Gotta have that materia!

Cait Sith
Hmm, you mean this?

Vincent
This is......

Man with Hat
The truth is, this is the materia inside the reactor.

Cid
What the hell did we fight for?

Man with Hat
We weren't protectin' the reactor, we were protectin' the condors.
When that reactor was built, they forced us to help. That's how we knew what was inside the reactor.
I knew this day would come, so after the Shinra left, I sneaked in and took the materia.
I didn't mean to fool you, but I guess that's how it ended up. I'm really sorry.

Cid
Just forget about it. Anyway, we're still alive.

Man with Hat
I see. If you put it that way...... we're really grateful.

Cid
So the last Huge Materia that Shinra's after's in the underwater reactor in Junon?

Barret
We gotta get there first and beat 'em no matter what!

Nanaki
We must get there before them and stop them!

Yuffie
We gotta get there and stop 'em...

Vincent
Getting to the reactor before them...

Cid
But ya know, Shinra's probably on high alert since we always mess with 'em.
How 'bout we take a break and go see that little fella for a bit?

Barret
You mus' mean Cloud......

Nanaki
You mean, Cloud...?

Yuffie
Cloud, right...?

Cait Sith
You must mean Mr. Cloud......

Cid
Yeah, I'm worried 'bout Tifa; she may've collapsed takin' care of the guy.
How 'bout checkin' in on 'em! Down to Mideel!

If the party loses the battle...

Cid comes back inside the shack and falls over.

Man
...... Even if you could only spare them......

The party comes to at the bottom of Fort Condor and slowly gets up.

Cid
God! What the hell happened here!?

Barret
He's still alive.

Nanaki
Where are we?

Yuffie
Oh good, they're still alive.

Cait Sith
Oy! What on earth happened?

Vincent
Seems like we survived.

Cid
Damn!! I can't stand this!

Barret
Oh man...... You look like hell.

Nanaki
......not enough strength.

Yuffie
Well, I'm just glad we're all alive.

Cait Sith
Things sure don't go smoothly.

Vincent
We might have understimated the situation.

Cid
This ain't no joke, Jack.

Barret
Oh man, this is real bad.

Nanaki
Things don't seem too favorable.

Yuffie
I told you I'm not kidding!

Cait Sith
It'd be one thing if it was a joke, but this's the truth.

Vincent
This is a rather harsh reality.

Cid
It's Huge Materia that the Shinra's after...... The only one left is in the underwater reactor in Junon.

Barret
We gotta get there first and protect it!!

Nanaki
We must get there first and stop them.

Yuffie
We got to get there first and stop them......

Vincent
We've got to get there first and stop them.

Cid
Yeah, but ever since we got in their way the last time, they should've gotten a little more cautious.
I doubt they'll fly right into action. I'm more concerned about him that anything else.

Barret
Cloud, it's you......

Nanaki
Yes, it's you Cloud......

Yuffie
It is you Cloud......

Cait Sith
Cloud......

Vincent
Cloud, it's you......

Cid
Yeah, and I'm worried that even Tifa's gonna fall over on her butt.
Let's go back and see what's happening?...... to Mideel...

The others nod.

On returning to the Highwind, if you haven't gone to North Corel yet...

Cid
Where shall we go next? Shall we head for the Corel reactor?

Otherwise:

Cid
Hey......
It's tough being the leader.
Cloud did a great job. Sheesh......
Shall we go to Mideel to check on things?

Barret
Yo, wanna see what Tifa and the gang are doing?

Nanaki
Say Cid.
I wonder how Tifa and Cloud...... are doing.

Cait Sith
Shinra's...... stopped.
Now we've got to be careful. I know Heidegger and his gang are plotting something.

Vincent
You look really tired, maybe you're ready to give up being leader?

Pilot in training (LV7)
Yaaah! Shall we take off?

Cid
- Roger
- Negative

Pilot in training (LV7)
Man! We're taking off!

Nanaki
I wonder how Cloud's doing.
I wonder if Tifa needs a break......
I could look after him instead.
