Guild Wars (2005 Video Game)
Robin Atkin Downes: Prince Rurik of Ascalon
Prince Rurik of Ascalon : As a boy I spent much time in these lands. Look at them now. Instead of ponds and streams we have pools of bubbling tar and rivers of sludge. It saddens me to see Ascalon in ruins.
Prince Rurik of Ascalon : [Trumpets sound in the distance] Trumpets! The king must be near. The fall of Rin will have darkened his heart.
[King Adelbern approaches]
Prince Rurik of Ascalon : Hail King Adelbern!
King Adelbern of Ascalon : Rise my son. You have done well. The discovery of Stormcaller is surely a sign of victory.
Prince Rurik of Ascalon : Is is a powerful weapon, but I fear not powerful enough. The Charr have amassed an army of many thousands.
King Adelbern of Ascalon : You overestimate these beasts, Rurik. Do not be afraid.
Prince Rurik of Ascalon : I am not afraid, father. I have seen them in battle. Rin has been destroyed. It would be wise to escape while we can. We should make for Kryta and rebuild our strength. Not wait here for death.
King Adelbern of Ascalon : I will never allow Ascalons to live in the shadow of the Krytans! It is Rin that will be rebuilt. And you will learn your place.
Prince Rurik of Ascalon : You have grown proud, Adelbern of Ascalon... proud and foolish!
King Adelbern of Ascalon : You would dare call your king a fool? I will hear no more! I banish you from Ascalon! You are no longer my prince, and you are no longer my son!
Prince Rurik of Ascalon : People of Rin! Your king will lead you to death. If you wish to see better days, if you wish to live, then leave the beasts behind and follow me over the Shiverpeaks. We make for Kryta and a new life, free of the Charr.
