Post 62: In which we enter a cave, then a dungeon, then a volcano, then go under the sea, then leave time, and so on.
On to our final adventure!
What about our adventure after this one?
We're doing the one after that one, right now!
Wait, what? We haven't beaten up Orgodemir yet!
Well, I broke causality by giving myself this shard, somehow, so let's see if we can't find an appropriate pedestal.
Where would another pedestal be?
There are some chambers at the Ruined Fane that were blocked off by prison doors. Perhaps we should bother with them... but first, let's drop off these TinyMedals, shall we?

(Medal King) the world. Aha! You've got medals for me, I see! Hmm... That brings the total up to 100 TinyMedals! Here's your BluePrint, SageRock, MetlKingShield, BoleroArmor, and ? Shard!
Ahh, another ? Shard. We're gonna need this. Now, on to the Ruined Fane!

It seems to be a small island with a cave on it... You know what that means?
We check out the other pedestal that was just past the one we took.

I'd say we were missing three or four pieces from this one, but that's a worry for some other time. Back to that cave!

This appears to be a fairly normal cave so far... though the enemies are much stronger than the ones we will have seen in Orgodemir's tower.
Master Link, we haven't been to Orgodemir's tower... so how do you know?
I'm really good at guessing. Now shush!

And now we're in some passages... what an odd dungeon.

These guys are pretty nasty, what with being the Kaisers of Hell. You need to keep on your toes down here.

This maze seems somewhat familiar... but why is it down here?

What the hell? Oooh, there's a TinyMedal in that pot in the corner.
And MadBooks on the bookshelf.
Just like any good home. Wait...

Now we're at the house of that old man who lived on the cliff near Estard Castle!
What the hell is going on here?

And this... this is the halfling cave.
What in the name of God could make such a place? We've gone up and down and have ended up in places that should not be connected to each other, but are!

All of these are recolors of monsters we've seen before, but much tougher. Like I said, the monsters here are almost worrisome.

I like it! It's like a greatest hits album of our adventures.

Revirocks are just obnoxious - like BombCrags, they sacrifice themselves, but instead of exploding, they cast Farewell - which revives and fully heals all of the other enemies. It makes things drag on.

TinyMedal 102 - in a chest at some point in this random dungeon.

See this hat? This hat is great - the MagicHat makes spells cost less, making it handy for the magic-users of the party. Unfortunately, it has a low defense, but it's still worth it.

There is one thing that is notable about these guys - they're the ones that can drop Golem hearts. It's still easier to just get a BombCrag and Berserkr heart and master them both, though. But it's nice to just have the heart lying around when possible.

Here's another TinyMedal - it's in a building that's in a knock-off of the village on the path from Penal to Dharma. There's also a monster in the church who will take your confession (Read: Save your game), if you would like.

What's that in the next room?
That can't be who I think it is!
Is that...
Yes! It's...

Next time, on Dragon Warrior 7 - The first optional boss! If you know what it is, don't spoil it!
