Part 43: Snow Chronicles 9: Shining FingerSnow Chronicles 9: Shining Finger
Music: The Enchanted Sanctuary
Thats enough chapter down. Time for the after-action report! I should really eat something... Not many more of these mini-updates left.
WE DIDNT MEET ANYONE NEW, YOU ANTI-SOCIAL JERKS!
This is like the third fantasy setting game Ive played in recent years that hadnt gotten around to industrialization much more advanced than a horse and wagon, yet still had a firm grasp on genetic structures in living organisms.
Dont ask questions! Just kill this bird on sight.
This description feels like its a paragraph or two short of revealing the foxgirls ability to grow male genitalia at will. Tokyo RPG Factory, please keep your staffs fetishes in check, huh?
...Oh god. Ive murdered like 20 of these things and now youre telling me theyve just wanted to play and theyre intelligent, thinking creatures that are stinky boys as a life style choice. Oh man... Aww geez...
Question: How is it using all of these breath attacks when it doesnt have a mouth? Or... is that its mouth and theres just eyes growing inside it now...? You know what? Forget I even asked...
That whole tedious slog of a boss battle wasnt a coordinated attack? It was just basically wandering into town with a hangover and decided to take out some aggression? What a jerk.
I forgot there was even a human enemy category. And that it is filled with four essentially unlosable interactive cutscene battles. Oh and that one time Endir, Nidr, and Aeterna flipped the fuck out and murdered the entire town guard early in the game. Good times.
By the way, uhh... datalog translator. We went with Lightning instead of Thunder and Luminaire instead of Shining in the localization... Just a lil FYI. Ill let the one-time flub pass in light of The 3rd Birthday having vast swaths of incorrect information based on old versions of the game script.
We only picked up one new weapon in this chapter and we couldnt even equip it until after the chapter had just concluded. Sweet Tron aesthetic.
Were also a bit light on the Spritnite during this chapter. Every RPG protagonist should have an attack that is just yelling like a jackass. Ramza Beoulve, now there was a boy with a set of lungs on him. Yelled like the dickens. Good lad.
Huh... Youd think the Luminaire spritnite would be some passed down relic in Sayagis family or guarded sacrifice pilgrimage token. Nah. Its just something Sayagis party found grinding Pengy one day. No big deal.
*zooms in uncomfortably close to face* Heard of any news from the other provinces?
Its less of a demonic strike and more of a highly situational to the point of uselessness and an active detriment in many situations... strike.
Yet its just lousy with intelligent, stinky apes and foxgirls seducing horny men. Truly a strange microcosm of the wasteland untouched by mans corruption.
Technically, the Ithees Ruins are in the following chapter. But we dont get the chapter end wrap-up until were already standing inside of em. Spoiler: Its another techno-ruins template dungeon and theres probably going to be some out of nowhere plot revelations within. Maybe well learn Aeterna is actually from a displaced timeline where Pengy became the dominate lifeform on the planet and shes trying to fulfill a closed time loop. Or that Kir is actually left handed. Who knows!
Historians have it all wrong, turns out the song was actually a commissioned commercial jingle for a local businesss seasonal rug sale in the ancient kingdom. The academic community has been turned on its head at the revelation.
Setsuna despaired over her lost comrades. Anyway, Aeterna immediately came back. And something, something... Julienne is back too! We got real melodramatic with that chapter title, huh? Tune in next time for Chapter 11: Heir to the Throne. Wherein the King of Fantasy Canada will be crowned.
