Part 89: Level 1 run - Chapter 09

CHAPTER NINE: Gitan was explore for clues in old tree. Time to rock and roll, his thoughtedhead brightened him.

Gargan Roo is only a problem at level 1 if I somehow linger in a screen long enough to get caught in a random encounter. Or if I get unlucky. But I didn't!

Bye Treno.

Raluvavulva or whatever is no big deal as it can hit only one person at a time.

Tinhank blood swords at it.

Back to Gitan's wacky crew of minorities.

Gitan getting naked last disc is rewared with new clothing teleporting to his location this disc.

Ah, my friend, how I missed you.

What do you call the wierd guitar moves done for this area's music? The Great Chalice of Hope in SMT4 also does it.

Anyway it's Fleeing and gathering treasures and not collecting 7-direction golems for my Battle City Tournament deck.

There is only one encounter that matters, the ol' Double Carrion Worm.

Like the axebeaks, Quark eats one.

Then like the axebeaks, fleeing so we keep the magic but not the experience.

I am not good at button mashing, so these are annoying.

Zuus are actually larger than the stop graphic so that it's still flapping is kind of a sign this didn't work.

After the weird and funky trunk theme a simple flute tune can go screw itself.

I buy entirely too much stuff. This is the last store before the hardest part of the game. I need to prepare.

I go snaggle the silk robe for fun.

Quark dies along the way. We leave them for the jackals so that Gitan may live.

LOL JK I was trying to set up another Limit Glove.



Unfortunately there's an invisible free heal before Antlion.

Sandstorm inflicts blind and reduces HP to single digits. But not to 1 for Quark because ugh why does playing the game in comically unintended ways have to be so difficult.

Quark shows off their fancy-new Auto-Life. They do not have a halo because blind's graphic takes precedence.

Papito casts Bio some. It doesn't matter. Just about 1k damage.

Sandstorm sets HP to a random single digit, so in this case it increased Ratchel's HP by 3. The Antlion is not exactly hasty about killing the party.

Shit, I'm not exactly hasty!

Finally, Quark bites it.

Auto-Life revives them. At 1 HP. The exact amount for Limit Glo

Oh fuck you.




Get bent loser.

And then the sandstorm ritual fails as Ratchel is level 1 and too weak to riverdance. It's more of a gullydance.

Next time: the invasion of Cleyra that Mega64 skimmed over is actually kinda ridiculous when you can't kill anyone.

One to Tidal Flame Garnet for the hell of it; Unknown number lost to plant spiders spawn numbers; died to Flans without Flee; Untimely crit pushed Sealion to fatally Blizzara; less work to suicide on optional Type A fight than to win or reset; incredible number of resets for phoenix down RNG; and then again; Marcus gained levels; Snared by the Mandragoras leaving Quan's Dwelling; Only one on a pointless phoenix down rng; Antlion did not cooperate; Again, Antlion did not cooperate.
