As the dramatic play rolls on, a swordfight scene will occur in which the player can do button combinations and impress nobles for cash and items (the latter which you get in awhile).

There are one hundred (100) nobles in attendance and you get varying rewards after completing the event, and the rewards you get are based on how fast you press the corresponding buttons and if those buttons are correct. The best reward, of course, is the δMoonstone, which is a rare accessory (finite in number) that you will want to try and get. If you don't get it the first time, you can always take the audience up on their 'encore,' which lets you have another shot at doing the fight. You're guaranteed an δEther if you fail everything, but if you get 50 to 79 nobles, you will instead get an δElixir. For 80 to 99 nobles, you will pick up a δSilk Shirt, and the δMoonstone is the reward for all 100. There are fifty commands to put in, so this can be a bit of a trial. You can get another δMoonstone at a later time, so don't beat yourself up over not getting the best reward. You can try saying each button out loud, which may help with the coordination (does for me). Whatever amount you get, the crowd throws Gil at you commiserate with your performance. Blank and Zidane walk off-stage, into the castle proper…

Once the two have put the incompetent on-duty knights into sleepy-bye-land, go up the stairs (only way to go) to encounter a girl in white. Talk to her and she will run away; the view then switches to Queen Brahne and her two bodyguards, one of which you can name (Steiner). After some hilarious scenes, Steiner can do a little "game" where he rounds up his AWOL squad. The object is to send everyone out searching for the errant princess. However, before you do anything, go talk to Queen Brahne and she will give you the reward that was dependant on Blank/Zidane's performance; search the guardhouse Blank and Zidane were in for a δPhoenix Down. To track down all the Knights, see the minigames guide. Afterwards, climb to the top of the stairs to get see another funny scene, bringing everyone to the Prima Vista once again.

Talk to Ruby and pursue Garnet downstairs. After Cinna gets ridiculed, he will lead everyone to an escape hatch in the adjacent room. Down amongst the engines, move the turncrank to the left and right; this lets a δPhoenix Down and δPhoenix Pinion chest drop to the ground floor. Equip Zidane with that δMage Masher if you want and enter the adjacent room. A…uh, boss fight will take place.

Everyone ends up getting away, luckily, but at what cost?
