Part 3: In Which Will Refrains From Strangling a Princess
Edward's Castle Theme
Obviously. Useless guards
Ill just wander around then? Is that okay?
"Do whatever you want, kid. I said my piece."
Good to know. You guys youve seen some things happen because he got upset, havent you?
As a note, I missed something here. Ill address it in an extra update later. And yes, that did mean replaying the entire game up until what will be update five.
Do you mean that innocent people physically cant enter? Like if they try theyll bounce off?
I dunno kid, lets toss you in and see what happens. Youre innocent, right?
Thats really sweet, but we kind of just met.
Well, hes really shy
Oh. Huh, good luck with that. Wish I could help.
Im glad that somewhere in the world here is someone who is thinking of me.
Yknow, all of you guys look a lot alike. It must be the helmets.
How do you define strangers?
Whats this? A guest?
Not as such, your highness. This is just a shabby boy.
Its me, Kara.
Oh That voice
Oh, pardon me! Please enter!
And dont you forget it.
I was told to bring the Crystal Ring to King Edward I guess thatd be your dad?
Terrible! Its terrible! Again my father is trying to take something important from someone.
So your dads a dick too. Welcome to the club.
Ive escaped from the castle before. Now they wont let me go out!
My mother has hired a famous hunter. Its ominous.
Princess, lets go.
Please save me! Take me out of here! Please
Um guard just pretend you didnt here any of that.
My job is pretty much not hearing things.
Good luck with that, then.
After all that wow. How much of a breakfast does he eat?
Okay, so much for getting the queen to go to bat for me
Yeah, your daughter said about the same thing. Like father, like daughter.
Well, did you bring the Crystal Ring?
Um about that. I dont even know what in the hell youre talking about.
How dare you say such at thing to me!!
Then go to Wills house and find the Ring!
Maam! Save me!!
Did you say maam? Well, I never!
Well, fuck me. That could probably have gone better
This moss has seen thousands of prisoners come and go those prisoners must have been encouraged by any sign of life they even remembered to lock the door. Definitely not dealing with amateurs here.
I dont even know where youre going with that, but uh.. thanks for the bread, I guess?
Okay, new plan. Use the bread as a club and kill a rat or something.
I mean, it was snail pie but I still want some. Maybe if I get some sleep
Oh Gaia, In hallucinating after only one night in the hole.
Will, this is your father.
Okay, pretty sure my dad wasnt a flute. Although, that would explain a few things about mom
You were a cute child, but now youve grown up.
Okay, now I know that youre my dad. Nobody else would actually say something like that.
Youre a talking flute and Im locked up in the kings jail. Its not like Im in a position to say no.
This is a false choice, which the game seems to be full of. No matter what you choose, the results are identical.
I want you to save me I, too, was once held in this cell. Look at the left-hand wall.
Well, thats new.
Your grandpa knows the secret of that stone. Starting now you will encounter a terrible thing
Do I have to?
Its either that or die here in this cell. Pick up the stone your enemy left.
That power will prove to be your ally. You must make a pilgrimage to the ruins of the world to find the Mystic Statues. The closer you get to the Crystal, the stronger the evil power will be
Dad, that doesnt even make sense. What crystal are you even talking about? How am I going to know it when I see it?
Thats okay, but how do I get out of here? You never explained that part.
Finally, things are looking up! Cmere bacon, Ive got this nice hard bread for you wait, is that a key? And an envelope?
Its terrible what my fathers done, but hear what I have to say. I too am a prisoner - in a prison of silk and gold. But tonight I will leave the castle forever. You also will be free - Kara.
Prison of silk and that spoiled, self-entitled little drama queen!
Lets just hope nobody heard that.
Right next to our cell is a portal to dark space, giving us a convenient chance to save before the first dungeon area of the game. I didnt mention it before, but theres actually a special music for the dark spaces: Dark Space Theme
Next update: The aforementioned dungeon area, and a return to South Cape.
