Part 64: Bonus Update - Stuff the Party Says, Part XThe dialogue in this set of conversations is a little odd. Some of it is clearly what the party members should be saying before we fix the Tree's brain and some of it is obviously meant to come afterwards, so bear that in mind when you're reading them.
Considering he had a literal demon thrashing around inside his brain it's not that surprising.
See what I meant? Either this is an oversight of some kind or Aspara is really slow on the uptake.
It's okay, I'm sure he'll find some enterprising youths willing to beat the senility out of him.
He probably sees himself as an impossibly badass knight in shining armour with a huge sword who runs around saving damsels and smiting evil villains with a single blow.
Well you know what they say, you can't make an omelet without diving into the chickens mind and beating the hell out of its brain cells until it remembers to lay eggs for you to use.
This reference might be a little confusing. It's another call-back to the original Breath of Fire, where the party used the Bolster to enter Mogu's dreamworld. The Bolster and the Therapy Pillow are clearly the same item, with both being Tunlan/Melodia's royal treasure.
Knowing the depiction of sentient trees in popular fantasy literature I'd have to say this is probably correct.
I think there's only one more filler dungeon after this and then it's non-stop plot relevant places until the end of the game. Of course, it's still going to be a while before we get to the end.
