Part 12: In which Will Huffs and Puffs and Blows a Door DownA short update today, so that we can cover all of the upcoming dungeon in the next update.
Yeah, we spent about three weeks of it on a raft. Seems like you got a faster trip.
Ive been working and living in this hotel. Lance is in the room on the right. You might want to see him
Before we deal with that, theres a Red Jewel upstairs that we can grab out of a random pot. If youre an experienced gamer, your natural inclination is to search every nook, cranny, and potential hiding place.
If I dont know who I am, how did I get here?
With a LOT of help, obviously.
Amnesia? Im glad everyone is safe, but
Yeah, he got snatched up after he tried to help some laborers escape.
No worries, Ive got this. Just stay here and give me a minute.
Approaching the area where Erik has to be confined we can see a robed figure peering out through the window. Not creepy at all.
Nearby theres a save point, which seems like a good idea but isnt really necessary. Were not exactly in danger now, but if I was playing on an actual system rather than an emulator Id certainly welcome the chance to save.
As a note, this is what happens when you talk to the guy blocking you from the
An area which you can only reach by jumping south over the fence into the grassy area. Theres no indication that you can do this, and if Im right then this is about the only place wheres required.
Working our way around brings us to this area, where a robed man gives us yet another Red Jewel. Thats all of the gems in this area, and that means
We can turn them in for a boost in Attack Power.
Weve got 14 gems at this point. At this point the next prizes from Gem are more abstract and thus a bit less immediately useful. If you were on a second play through and didnt want his secrets itd be perfectly reasonable to skip a couple of the more objectionable gems and just get the lesser prizes. With that, its time to move on!
Yeah, is there a guy named Erik there? About so high, kind of annoying?
Ive never heard of such a name. Why do you ask?
Listen, you might want to get away from the door. Because one way or another, Im coming in.
Two seconds later
I didnt think you could break down the door!
I did that with my flute. If I really want to, I can crash through a wall. Hey, whered the guy I was talking to go?
I tried to sneak into the camp to rescue three laborer brothers.
So howd that work out for you?
Ill tell you where. Please save them!
Ill get to it. Meantime, lets go back to the inn with everybody else.
My tears have all been cried
so, Lilly, how are things?
Sounds great. Id love to hang around, but I have to go rescue some slaves.
If you look on the map leaving Freejia (whatever spelling you choose to use) you can see one of our future destinations to the north. Instead, were going to be heading to the Diamond Mine thats been mentioned before.
Is that is that a lizard man? What kind of mine is this?
thats not making me feel any better.
Next update: Three was lowballing it.
