Part 6: Post 05: Exploring Kol
Post 05: Exploring Kol
Our adventure east brings us to a bridge. As you cross bridges, it is said that enemies grow stronger.
A little ways to the east, there's... another bridge. That can't be good.
To the north, a strange little mountain pass exists.
Following the pass leads us to this shrine!
But what is this place? It seems odd to be out in the middle of nowhere, in a world infested with monsters.
*: Word is that you are on a quest to defeat DracoLord. However, DracoLord is a being of unspeakable power. I can't allow you to go knowing that you will fail. Andy, let me test your power. I've heard that somewhere in this world there is a Shiny Harp that summons monsters. Bring it to me. I will recognize you as a hero and confer you the Rain Staff.
- The Shiny Harp is known as the Silver Harp.
- The Rain Staff is known as the Staff of Rain.
Leaving the shrine and the small pass, we finally come across a town nestled near the mountains.
A town to the east.
*: The husband of Cleo there left town in search of some Keys. How could a man just abandon his pretty wife? What a louse! Tch!
He must have locked his door since every door has to have a key it seems.
Cleo: I didn't want to be a burden for him to chase his dreams.
: But he... left to go get some keys. That isn't all that fascinating of a dream.
*: have the legendary sword either... Perhaps it's not for sale.
: Who the heck sells a legendary weapon to some random adventurer?
The inn cost went up by a little again. It's still affordable though, for now!
*: A beautiful woman will declare her love to you! Hehehe...
: A little too late for that if you know what I mean.
*: Rimuldar that sells Keys.
*: Oooh, so nice... Zzzz...
Fleeing the inn and it's terribleness, we find ourselves outside of a bathhouse on the other side of Kol.
contains a Strength Seed!
contains Cloth Shirt!
*: How about a powder-puff massage? Just 20G, honey!
: Oh sweet Goddess what just happened to me!?
Puff, puff, puff...
*: Your weapon will not be enough to defeat DracoLord. Somewhere in the world, Loto left behind his sword. Find it.
: Is that in a general area, or do you just mean the whole freakin' world.
*: beautiful woman in the cave by the sea south of here. But the cave is infested with monsters. There can't be a beautiful woman there. He must have just imagined it.
A beautiful woman in a cave huh? Maybe, just maybe, that might be our Princess!
*: said to fear the melody of a flute. Some monsters can't be beaten by just brute force. If you're in a battle, consider your opponent's weak points.
: Are you insinuating I can play a flute?
*: of here?
: Not really, no.
*: The island of Rimuldar is in the south.
Rimuldar is rumoured to have Keys, and is to the south huh? I think we have a pretty good idea of what we gotta do!
...well, after we do everything else first.
