A Town in Need, Indeed was a virtual representation of one of Kassandra's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5 and a memory of Layla herself.




  • Kassandra: The pirates are Poseidon's problem now.
  • Megakles: What have you done? Didn't you hear me screaming? You sunk our reinforcements!

  • Kassandra: They sure looked and fought like pirates.

  • Kassandra: You didn't say anything about reinforcements. You said pirates.

  • Kassandra: Those ships attacked me. I fought back. That's what I do.

  • Megakles: I sent a message to the supply ships to disguise their sails. "Look like a pirate and sail in unseen." Those ships had supplies and troops.

  • Kassandra: If I'd known they were reinforcements, I wouldn't have attacked. I need to set this right.
  • Megakles: There's still time. If we can get these villagers ready for battle, they can fight off the pirates themselves.

  • Kassandra: You're not an actual general, are you?
  • Megakles: Not... a... Listen to me, misthios. I've fought in three wars. No training prepares you for this.
  • Kassandra: You had no strategy.
  • Megakles: These villagers are as good as slaughtered because of you. But if we can get them ready, they can fight off the pirates themselves.

  • Kassandra: 'Now you tell me.
  • Megakles: Didn't think I had to say, "Don't sink the fucking reinforcements!" Without those troops, we need to get these villagers ready for battle.

(Then let's get ready to fight.)

  • Kassandra: I'll do it. I don't see an armory, though. Where's the smith?
  • Megakles: He hasn't worked since the last Eagle Bearer was here.
  • Kassandra: I'll get him making swords. Can the villagers ride?
  • Megakles: For salt workers, they're not bad. And there's a horse breeder in town.
  • Kassandra: I'll talk to them.
  • Megakles: Though we can't just arm them and tell them to fight. There's only one man who can rally the people, claims to be a reborn Ajax the Lesser. Find him and get him back.

(If players choose, "Where can I find the smith?")

  • Kassandra: So where's the blacksmith?
  • Megakles: The forge caught fire. The smith's in the village, but you'll need to help him rebuild before he can work again.

(If players choose, "What about the horse breeder?")

  • Kassandra: Tell me more about the horse breeder.
  • Megakles: She knows horses better than Poseidon. Get her to put a mare under each of these villagers, and we'll have a chance.

(If players choose, "What about this Ajax?")

  • Kassandra: If dead heroes are anything like me, they don't like being impersonated. Are you sure this Ajax guy is a good idea?
  • Megakles: Let the dead judge us all they want. We need to shake the fear out of these villagers. The last time I saw Ajax, he was headed to the hills southwest of here, on the northern border of Phokis.

(If players choose, "What do you know about my imposter?")

  • Kassandra: Tell me what you know about the one using my name.
  • Megakles: He came in with a vicious little bird. Called it... Ikaros? Something like that. Anyway, said he'd help, then made things worse at every turn. So far, you two have a lot in common.

(Leave this to me.)

  • Kassandra: The villagers will be warriors when I'm done.

After attempting to help all the citizens Megakles mentioned, Kassandra returns to him.

  • Megakles: You're back just in time. How's Nikaia? I heard she's trained a stallion for me.

  • Kassandra: Nikaia's dead. She thought your horse was Pegasos and rode it off a cliff.
  • Megakles: She what? All right. We don't need horses to fight if we have weapons. How many has Kallipides made?

  • Kassandra: Oh, Nikaia's great. There’s more horses than this village has people.
  • Megakles: She’s as reliable as they come. And Kallipides? Has he armed the villagers?

  • Kassandra: Kallipides... had an accident.
  • Megakles: What kind of accident?
  • Kassandra: The really bad kind. He... didn't see some stone blocks. He walked right into them, and -
  • Megakles: Enough. Without weapons, we're doomed.

  • Kassandra: The villagers are all armed. Every single one. Nothing to worry about there.
  • Megakles: Good! Spilling a little pirate blood on the salt might make it taste better.
  • Kassandra: You never know. Now, as for Ajax.
  • Megakles: Tell me he inspired the villagers to make a stand.

  • Kassandra: We haven't even talked about Ajax yet.
  • Megakles: Did you find him?

  • Kassandra: Ajax had this helmet that he thought would make him immortal...
  • Megakles: And?
  • Kassandra: It didn't.

  • Kassandra: Ajax put on a real show. I’ve never seen anything like it.
  • Megakles: Good! Very good. The villagers are a superstitious type.
  • Kassandra: In this village, I can see why.
  • Megakles: You did good. The villagers should be able to defend their homes thanks to you.
  • Kassandra: They may still need a bit of help.
  • Megakles: Agreed! We can leave them to defend the village while you and I stop any pirates that are storming the Salts. What do you think?

  • Megakles: Malaka.
  • Kassandra: Tell me about it.
  • Megakles: I would ask literally anyone else, but what choice do I have? I need everyone with a blade fighting with me. You can at least fight, can't you?

(Let's go kill pirates.)

  • Kassandra: Let's go.
  • Megakles: Not a lot of people would have been honest with me the way you were. I respect that. I just hope there's still a chance that we can make this right.
  • Kassandra: I will do everything I can to save these people.


Kassandra tried helping out a horse breeder, blacksmith and local hero. Unfortunately, her efforts were futile and Kallipides, Nikaia and Ajax the Lesser died.
