Walkthrough & Notes[edit | edit source]
Blackeye tells you about 'Sky Fortress,' a secret project undertaken by the Dark Wind under Katvan's direction. The flying aircraft carrier is to become the headquarters of the Maple Alliance, which was formed after the attack on Tria.
Apparently, there's one this missing before Sky Fortress is operational. Speak with Blackeye to learn more!

Bestowal Dialogue[edit | edit source]
- Blackeye: Ever since the assault on Tria, Dark Wind, the Green Hoods, the Order of the Eclipse, and the Royal Guard have held countless meetings on addressing the crisis at hand.
- Blackeye: We've discussed the topic of how best to defend Maple World and aid in its recovery, but ultimately...
- Blackeye: There's no one magic solution. So we decided that everyone should focus on what they do best. The Royal Guard will see to the well-being and safety of the people, the Green Hoods will gather and redistribute supplies...
- Blackeye: And the Order of the Eclipse... Err, Allon, what is it exactly that they do again?
- Captain Allon: They keep an eye on the gates to the Shadow World, and root out any traces of the darkness in our own -- though in the end these efforts were for naught.
- Blackeye: Well... it's not like the Dark Winds' efforts came to much either, with Katvan at the helm. Or so we thought.
- Blackeye: There was only one good thing to come from his treachery...
- Blackeye: Since his disappearance, Dark Wind has collected every scrap of information they can about the traitor Katvan, but we still don't know how or when he might return.
- Blackeye: But our investigation did uncover Katvan's secret data server hidden within Dark Wind HQ.
- Blackeye: And what we found on that server was more than just data...
- Blackeye: We also found the blueprints for Project Aegis: the Sky Fortress. It's a next-generation airborne aircraft carrier.
- Blackeye: It's a large vessel, intended to be used as Dark Wind's mobile command center.
- Blackeye: The story goes that Katvan was concerned with HQ's safety after the Black Mushroom incident, and saw the need for a mobile command center that could continue operating even if Kerning City was plunged into chaos.
- Blackeye: Of course, that was all just a pretext for his true motives. Nevertheless, he kept both the empress and Prime Minister Vidrem in the dark about his plan.
- Blackeye: It's obvious for whom Katvan was really constructing Sky Fortress.
- >So... Are you going to destroy the carrier?
- Blackeye: Hahahaha...
- Blackeye: Don't be silly.
- Blackeye: We would never destroy such a valuable asset!
- Blackeye: Dark Wind has already taken the liberty of securing both the carrier and its construction facility.
- Blackeye: It wasn't much of a challenge. With Katvan gone, it seems the engineers abandoned the facility.
- Blackeye: We have on our hands a unique opportunity. Maple World has always been under siege, but so rarely do we stumble upon tools we can use to strike back.
- Blackeye: that's why Dark Wind has retrofitted the carrier as the new base of operations for the alliance.
- >The alliance...?
- Blackeye: The Maple Alliance, composed of the allied factions of Dark Wind, the Order of the Eclipse, the Green Hoods, and the Royal Guards.
- Blackeye: Sky Fortress will be our flagship.
- Blackeye: The Alliance will be able to travel quickly and safely wherever its aid is needed. We will be able to deliver supplies with precision and without harassment from monsters or our enemies.
- Blackeye: This fortress will become the shield of the skies -- Maple World's last line of defense.
- Blackeye: This is the plan we called you here to discuss: the operation of Sky Fortress.
- Blackeye: The ship has nearly everything it needs. Firepower, a command center, and a plan of action. But it's missing the most important component.
- >What's that?
