We gonna stomp some darkness.
Oh no! It's almost as if Cecilia was working for the royal family, like EVERYONE ELSE IN THIS GAME.
Please don't laser me I'll be good
She has no reason not to trust her, but that doesn't stop the queen. Stupidity runs rampant in Alendar.
Aw, come on! I don't want to go back to the ruins. It smells there.
Irony is nifty.
Ok! So! For this playthrough, I'm using a save that finished all four endings. This means I have all the bonus TRAPs, plus a couple hundred dreak. I did this so that I can spend the next few chapters showing off new TRAPs and combos. I'll eventually show off all the bonus TRAPs, but for this chapter I only used the banana peel and teleporter. The peel makes a victim slip and fall in true slapstick fashion, while the teleporter will take Reina to wherever you placed it on the map. Very useful for luring people into a tight spot.

Poor timing on this screenshot, but you can see the darkness being stomped, as foretold by the chapter title.
That is such a nifty little blender.
He slipped and cracked his skull on the staircase.
Go into the lava! You know you want to! It's so pretty and warm and it has the wonderful sulfur smell to it.
People who want to live?
"Well, a few of them might have but they were cut off by all the blood choking them."
Aren't you the dainty one?
Oh no he's gonna rape Reina. This was a bad idea and I shouldn't have gone through with it and now she's going to suffer and it's all my fault.
As opposed to the other king, who gave her a noogie and ran into his treehouse.
Now go to your room.
Oh, in that ca-what?!
How the hell has this guy not been assassinated, or run the country into the ground by now?
On top of everything else, Reina has to do housework.
Man, things can only get worse. How much worse? Find out next time!
