Chapter 06: Dazil
[Begin music: "Emotions"]
[Scene opens south of the forest. Fei and Citan walk south of Blackmoon
Forest and enter the town of Dazil. Scene change.]
[Begin music: "Dazil, City of Burning Sands"]
[Scene opens at the north gate of Dazil. Fei and Citan walk into the gate.
Fei walks a few steps into the town.]
"Yes, that is right. The desert town of Dazil."
[Camera pans back to show a wide shot of the town.]
"This town's lively."
"This is the center for all excavations in Aveh.
People come from
all over Ignas to try and find the resources buried in the ruins around
[Camera moves back to original shot of Fei and Citan.]
"We should be able to find out what both Aveh and Kislev are up to,
And we also have to gather the things we need to repair Weltall."
[Fei turns around and looks at Citan.]
"Yes. We must exchange the broken parts to fix
Otherwise it will not be able to function at all!
There is an
'Ethos' workshop in the southern part of this town. Let us go there, Fei."
"Yeah, okay doc, let's check this place out then."
[Fei and Citan walk up to the wall and walk around when Fei suddenly
[Scene change to an excavation site.]
"That's amazing. They're digging right next to this town too?"
[A robot digger walks by.]
"This is an Aveh-run excavation site.
The machines and Gears
found here are valuable resources that could turn the tide of the war.
are indispensible to the war effort."
[The conversation pauses.]
"Anyway Fei... Let us move on.
We have more pressing matters to
do than taking in the 'sites'!"
[Scene changes back to where Fei stopped. They walk further into town, and
speak to a civilian.]
Since those Gebler forces came, Aveh's hardly ever lost to
I wish the 'Ethos' would give out some of those new powerful
[Fei turns to Citan.]
"The 'Ethos'? What do Gears have to do with the 'Ethos'?"
"Only the 'Ethos' has the technology to maintain generator driven
The 'Ethos' decides which Gear gets which generator in which

[Scene opens on rental shop's interior. Fei and Citan walk up and talk to the
Hm? Haven't met you before. So you want to rent out a sand buggy
[Citan walks up to the desk.]
"A sand buggy is a special type of vehicle designed for the desert
Its tires will not get stuck in the sand... You really need them for
long desert trips."
Sorry but all our buggies are lent out now. Do you want to wait for
Some of those guys hunting for parts should be back soon.
"I see... Well then, we will come again later."
[The two leave. Scene change.]
[Scene opens on Dazil. Fei and Citan travel across the town and enter the
Inn. Scene change.]
[Scene opens on the Inn's interior, where a couple of soldiers are talking up
a storm at the bar.]
Yeah, we did it!
Ha-ha! We did it!
Who'd have thought it?
I didn't think it would go so well...
Sneaking in the night...
Follow after the army excavation teams...
Just like that... Poof!
and steal their treasure!
"... This sure is a noisy place!"
"Well, in a place like this you have to expect this kind of
"Yeah, but even so..."
[A man in purple clothing behind the soldiers shoves them across the

[The man takes a few steps towards the soldiers, now slumped at the other end
of the room.]
"Why're you all yappin' when Big Joe is here trying to drink
Can't ya'all shuddup...? ...Hic!
[One soldier gets to his feet.]
Who'dya think ya are?
I don't care if you're Big Joe or Big
Shmoe! You don't mess with me!
[Big Joe laughs.]
[Big Joe stops laughing and adresses the soldier.]
"Yeah, you sure talk big.
Can you dig for treasure as good as
What's that ya' say!?
"You're so tough...
Always lookin' for junk laying around...
Why don't you do somethin' more productive for once!?"
If you ask me, You're a big pus--!
[The other soldier gets up and walks to the arguing one.]
Hey, stop it...
This guy's trouble.
[The first soldier turns to the second.]
Ah, shawdup! Just shut your trap!
[The soldier turns back to Joe and Joe laughs.]
"Gahahahaha! That's right... Run home to momma, little
[Soldier 2 runs out the door fast.]
Da-damn you! You'll keep!
[Soldier 1 runs out the door as fast as Soldier 2.]
"Ha! Cowardly little punks!"
[Big Joe walks back to his place at the bar.]
"Why, this man sure likes to make his presence felt!"
[Fei walks up to Joe and talks to him several times.]
"...hic... You drinkin' too?
Booze is my life companion!
Especially in a sucky world like this.
Everyone's searching for dough and
dynamite... Ha, how unromantic."
What am I doing here?
... Whatever I please, I
"You think you know about yourself?
I could introduce myself
right now, and by tomorrow be a different person.
If you didn't understand
that, I'll repeat... ... Hic!
Don't count your chickens before they
[Fei and Citan leave the Inn. Scene change.]
[Scene opens on Dazil. Fei and Citan continue on past the Inn to the Ethos
workshop and enter it. Scene change.]
[Scene opens on workshop. Camera pans down to show people working on a Gear
not nearly as sophisticated as Weltall, but working hard just the same. Scene
cut to show Fei and Citan in the doorway. Fei walks in a couple steps and looks
"Wow... So this is the 'Ethos' workshop, heh, doc?"
"Yes. The 'Ethos' workshops are the only places that officially
Let us see if we can get the parts we need to fix Weltall
As they say, time is money! ... So we should do whatever we can do as
soon as we are able to."
[The duo walk over to a mechanic who appears to be in charge, overseeing the
repair of the unsophisticated Gear.]
Huh? How can we help you?
"Sorry to bother you.
Our Gear has broken down, so I would like
to buy some parts to fix it."
Tough luck, huh? Can you tell me what make of parts you are
"Yes, we are hoping to replace an X-29 model injection bypass
X-29 model injection circuit?
That's only used on the latest
military models. We don't keep those kind of parts in stock here.
only get such special parts by placing an order at the 'Ethos'
This workshop is only for the repair of civilian Gears...
"I see. Sorry to have bothered you."
Sorry that we can't help you.
[Fei and Citan exit the workshop. Scene change.]
[Scene opens outside the workshop. Fei walks a couple steps and stops.]
"... Doc, do you have a moment? I need to talk to you."
"Yes, of course, Fei..."
[Fei turns around and nods. Scene changes to Fei and Citan standing on an
overpass in Dazil.]
"So Fei, what did you want to talk to me about?"
"... Well doc, it's about Weltall...
We can't find the parts we
need, so is it alright if we just don't fix it?"
"Do not repair it? What is the problem, Fei?"
"Well, we've been able to come as far as Dazil on our own...
doesn't that show that we don't need Weltall as much as we thought.
I've been thinking that once things cool down I want to go back to Lahan and
That's all I feel I can do now..."
"... I see. If that is what you want, Fei, then fine.
But I think
we should try and move Weltall as far away from there as possible."
"Move it away? But why do we need to do that, doc?"
"It is only my speculation, but...
I suspect the incident that
evening occured because the Gebler Special Force stole a Kislev Military
"Special Force... You mean Elly's group?"
When I examined the broken Gear in the village, I
realized the Gebler pilot was riding a Kislev Gear.
It must have had some new
technology involved in it for the Kislev army to send pursuit forces after
[Fei turns to Citan and shakes his head.]
"I suspect that the Gebler Force was out to steal a new experimental
"I am sure news of the Special Force's failure has reached the
They will be investigating the Lahan area to reclaim whatever parts
of the new Gear that they can find."
[Fei rocks back on his heels.]
"Hold on, doc! Won't the Kislev army still be in Lahan too!"
And in that case, there will be a conflict
between Aveh's inspection team and Kislev's pursuit troops.
If they find
where we have hidden Weltall..."
"The armies will fight over who gets Weltall... And right near Lahan
"So, to avoid any problems, we should move Weltall somewhere else
"But, we can't fix it in order to move it..."
[Citan shakes his head.]
"Right. But staying here will solve nothing.
Fortunately, this is
the center of all excavation work in this country.
There is bound to be some
information on where we can find parts...
Anyway, the fear is often worse
than the danger itself... We should not let such fears hold us back!"
[Fei and Citan leave the bridge and head back to the rental shop. A sand
buggy is parked outside.]
"This is a sand buggy.
... That is it, Fei!
I have thought of
a good way to get the parts we need for Weltall.
Let us go back to the rental
shop and rent out this buggy."
[Fei turns around to face Citan.]
"What do you intend on doing, doc?"
"Well, leave it to me. Just you wait and see."
[Fei and Citan walk into the rental shop. Scene change.]
[Scene opens inside rental shop. Fei and Citan go up and talk to the
The sand buggy you were waiting for is back.
Do you want to rent
[Citan turns and nods.]
"Yes, that is right. Do you have any we can rent right now?"
Of course... the keys are in the ignition, you can take it now.
"Well then, if I may."
[Citan turns to Fei.]
"Fei, I am going into the desert to search for parts for

"Going to the desert? Doc, are you going to excavate some ruins or

"The Kislev and Aveh armies are confronting each other in the desert

There is talk that their forces often break into battle over

"If I search the battlefields for the wrecks of such army

"Fei, you are such a worrier. Things have a way of working
You do not need to worry so much. Why not go kill some time at the bar
until I get back."
[Citan leaves. Fei watches him go.]
[The owner speaks, getting Fei's attention.]
Hey, are you letting him go out there alone?
Lots of fights break
out in the desert... it's a real dangerous place.
I've heard about a group of
pirates riding around attacking people on a sand cruiser.
shouldn't let him go out there by himself.
[Fei leaves. Scene change.]
[Scene opens on Dazil. Fei walks to the bar. Scene change.]
[Scene opens on the Inn's interior. Big Joe is still there.]
"...Hic... Where's your friend?
There's a war on in the desert
and he just goes wandering off there?
If your friends are important to you,
then don't let them get away.
Especially if it's a lady friend...
[Fei leaves the bar and exits Dazil. Scene change.]
