Post 60: In which we complete all of the preparation before the end-game.
Now for some TinyMedals!

#86 - Behind a house in the present city of Dune.

#87 - On the first floor of DarkDraco Tower, in the present

#88 - In the basement of Estard Castle, hidden under a staircase.

#89 - In the western room on the first floor of the Falrod Castle of the past.

#90 - In a barrel in the southeast guardhouse of Falrish, also in the past.

#91 - In a chest behind the counter of the item shop in Verdham, in the past. The furthest past, to clarify. You have to go in the east-side door to get this one.

#92 - Look familiar? This is the first floor of DarkDraco's tower again, but in the past. Evidently, this doesn't create a time paradox.

At this point, I realize that I've grabbed all of these *on the wrong save*, so have to get them again.

#93 - In the inn of Orph, in the past.

#94 - in Penal, the town near Dharma in the past, behind the wall west of the temple.

#95 - Very hard to see! This is in the little mini-town on route to Dharma through the cave in the past. The medal is behind the left-most grave. But you can't be facing the grave, or you'll check it, rather than the ground where the TinyMedal is.

#96 - In the maze just before Dharma in the past.
I'm sick of all of these TinyMedals. I don't want to go find any more.
I don't blame you. We can probably find four more in Orgo's place.
Well, what else should we do?
Remember that monster who claimed he was cursed by the Undersea King?
We could find him.
He's probably in some sort of hidden, mysterious vortex somewhere in the ocean that we'll never find.

I stand corrected. I wonder if this is the Undersea King, what with him having a shell for a crown and living under the sea.
Huh? Who's there? Who woke me up? Hold on a second. You look awfully familiar. What? You want to know if I'm the Undersea King?
It would be good to know, yes.
Indeed, I am the Undersea King. I serve the Aqua Spirit by protecting all of the creatures of the sea. You seem familiar. Oh! You're the travelers that saved Coastal.
Twice, technically. Soon to be three times. You look... less like a crazy old man.
That's not really true...
You look like an entirely different crazy old man.
(Undersea King) What? I look different? Ha ha! If I walked around above the sea in this form, it would be a little conspicuous. I take the form of an old man so I can spy on the dry world. I think I know why you are here. You wish to learn more about Anise, the wife of Sharkeye, right?
... Sure, among other things.
(Undersea King) I'm certain the Aqua Spirit is watching over her. Someday she'll be reunited with Sharkeye. What? You want to know someone else?
A monster asked me to talk to you about his looks a while back.
(Undersea King) What? A monster in the cave asked for me to change his appearance? Vrey well. I'll grant his wish and transform him into a sea creature. Tell the monster to see me.
Let's swing back by Coral Lake and check up on him then, shall we?

change me into a normal sea creature? That's wonderful! I had better go to him now! (He starts off, then stops) Oh! I almost forgot! I never break my promises. Here's your reward! (Link received the ? Shard!) Farewell!
Link, I'm calling in that favor now.
Alright, what's the plan?
It's time for me to be the smartest.
It's not gonna be easy - are you willing to put in the time, Gabo?
Then let's murder things until you get smart, then go to Litorud!

Some time later...

Yeah, I should be smarter on that thing!
No... why is Azmov down to rank 12? He used to be at the top - let's track him down. He should be back in Hamelia by now, I suppose.

(Beck) since the Crystal Palace, has it? I couldn't beliueve that it was actually the Demon Lord cloaked in God's image! Did you have any suspicions about it, Link?
Nope. Took me by suprise as well.
(Beck) Yes, the Demon Lord is truly a master of deceit. For him to fool even Link and friends... Now that's really something.
Odd, you were supposed to say something about the rankings. What happened to the event that was supposed to trigger? Well, I guess we'll have to get back to it later, Gabo.
One more thing, though... there was one last thing Melvin mentioned about someone close to me being in trouble... Let's go check that out.

Immediately after that huge ship appeared, I found him on a little boat, coming here. I couldn't believe it!

(Mollie) Don't just stand there. Go on, give him a big hello!
Hey, Dad. How's it hanging?
(Borkano) Ah! It's you, Link. You have changed a great deal in your short time away. I almost didn't recognize you. I understand I've caused you and your mother to worry. If not for my carelessness, I never would have fallen into the water. When the monsters surrounded me, I thought I was done for, but a huge pirate ship rescued me. It's thanks to them that I'm alive today. God must have been watching over me.
Well, it's good to have you back. Welp, time to go after the Demon Lord. See ya for dinner, I hope.

Next time, on Let's Play Dragon Warrior 7: The Beginning of the End

Also note Melvin's current job - He's a HolyCock.
Some might say he's been one for some time.

Also also note: Budoo DOES NOT give +255 to Strength when mastered - it gives a +20. It has been checked.
