Post 58: In which there is a big reveal, and everything makes a little more sense.

(Sefana) you, Link. I can't express how much I appreciate everything you've done. And I want so dearly to see all the Spirits with my own eyes! But I am also the Pendragon of the Lefa tribe. I need to pray here, together with my people. I need to pray for your safety, and for the return of peace. You never know where your adventures will take you. Please be careful. Farewell, Link and friends. May all of our prayers be answered!
The last thing we need to do is contact the water spirit - let's talk to Sharkeye, shall we?

are back!
(Sharkeye) At last, the time has come! Master Link! Come here! Hurry! The time has come. The auras of the awakened Spirits have surrounded the ship. Now, Link! Raise the AquagonSword up and receive the Spirits' powers!
Na na NA NA!

(Sharkeye) The path has been revealed! Caddell, steer us along the path of the light!
(Caddell) Yes, sir! Hoist anchor! Unfurl the sails!
(Sharkeye) That's it! So, Rainbow Cove is indeed the location of the Aqua Spirit! What? The AquagonSword! It's ablaze with light!

During my long sleep, I have watched over your journey, waiting for someone that could receive my light. The four forces - Earth, Air, Fire, and Water - are all gathered here. Now is the time to break the bonds of darkness!

All the lands that were plunged into darkness have been restored. However, this doesn't mean that your work, or ours, is done. You must go to God and ask Him why He plunged the world into darkness. Before you go, let me give you this. (Link obtained the AquaCharm) Take this amulet and follow us, Link!

Were you truly the power that was behind sealing us in darkness?
If so, then you are no God!

The world needs the power of God. The world needs my power! I alone can give people waht they want! I alone can make them happy! God is revered, while you are treated as the nothing that you are! Come now. There is nothing more for you to do here. I will send you back into eternal slumber!

Arrrggh! My body!

creations. It matters little. Pretending to be God was just a insignificant diversion for my amusement. It seems nothing remains of your power. Now all that stands before we (sic) are those little worm-like humans and a foolish hero who still blindly follows his fallen God. And there is nothing they can do to stop me! (He slaps all of the spirits away, and disappears)
That explains a lot....
What's going on with the Crystal Palace?

Master Link! Is everyone all right?
We're physically okay, I suppose.
Oh my, what a mess! I had my doubts about God's behavior, but I never imagined He was the Demon Lord! I wish we could chase the Demon Lord into the castle, but I fear we'll never reach the entrance from here. Best we return to Estard and set out again with the Sky Stone.

(King Burns) Upon Estard's arrival to the surface world, I must admit I was taken aback to discover the true form of God to be the Demon Lord. There have been many unexpected turns of events. I wonder, is this the result of your handiwork as well?
You know us - busy busy busy!
(King Burns) As I expected. What a brave group, responsible for saving the world. Link, I ask not as the King, but on behalf of those who fear the Demon Lord. Please, defeat him and restore peace to our world. His skull would make a grand trophy, a bowl from which to drink your victory grog!
Will do, King Burns!
Listen, I'm sorry to interrupt, but... I just got a strange feeling about my mother and father. I'm starting to get worried. I'm sorry, but I've got to go check out the village. I'll let you take care of the Demon Lord. Okay? (Maribel leaves.)
(King Burns) The power of the Demon Lord is enormous. If you fail, there will be none capable of defeating him. Draw your sword one last time.
Maribel's gone, so we're putting Melvin back in the lineup.

On the other hand... Orgodemir is the Demon Lord who evidently vanquished God. We beat him before, but he was weak at the time. And there are so many things that we can do now.
It's up to us to decide when we fight Orgodemir, but we must realize that we're the only ones that stand a chance against him. However, we are not alone - I have had vague glimpses of events, people, and places that will empower us. On an island southeast of Estard, a road of dreams remains upaved... One of us is destined to be the world's smartest man... There's a monster of the sea who is unhappy with his fate... Seriously, there are a lot of TinyMedals - why not get some more of them... Maybe we just ought to fight a bunch more monsters, I dunno... One of you is close to someone who needs help... Find this person... fast.
Wow! Those all sound like they would take about an update apiece at least!

Okay, this update ended up very short. Unless there's any particular request, I'm going to handle each of those sidequests in order of mentioning, and I'll try and fit 'em in fairly often.
