Part 25: Symbols and a RaceWe had another class with Ms. Isolde today.
Video- Symbology I
Watch the Class
I, um, didnt do the reading.
There are three kinds of emblems. First the most basic, alchemy support
What kind of power does this have, Vayne Aurelius?
I think it stabilizes the power of alchemy?
That is incorrect. Seems you havent touched your class reading.
Alchemy support is also called Booster type, and increases alchemy power.
The second is alchemy activation. Also known as Key type.
A specific word is used as a key to activate the certain kind of alchemy.
It requires advanced skill, but allows you to synthesize various items.
Didnt Flaya have something like that?
Really? Im gonna ask to see it next time.
The third is continuous activity. Also known as the Alltype.
This is considered a taboo and therefore, I cant get too detailed with it.
For todays Assignment Ill have you actually move a Key type emblem.
In the Winds Corridor is a transport device with this emblem. Activate it.
The key word is Dill. Report to Student Affairs when youre done.
But, you must defeat the monsters around it to make it work. Remember that.
We headed for the Winds Corridor to try and find this device.
Yeah. I wonder where it is
She didnt say anything else. I guess we have to look in every corner
I seemed to remember that wed found some place we couldnt pass a while back, and sure enough it turned out to be this emblem powered lift.
It was written on the floor
Vayne, say the key word.
The platform moved rather unexpectedly down.
Thats it right? Lets go back to Student
Wait. Since were already here, lets go adventuring all the way in.
Come on. Dont lag or else Ill leave you behind!
Nikki! Ooh, shes such a troublemaker
Well tag along for a bit, and go back when it seems about right.

So, that question in class, as far as I can tell, has no impact on the actual grade for the assignment or anything else beyond Isolde insulting you. Also, the time limit given is actually for finding the emblem and activating the lift, you have as much time as you want to find the deepest point of the Abyss. The Abyss has all kinds of cool stuff like Yubana and Elemia Silver, and awesome recipes, so feel free to explore.
We eventually found a large wall which blocked our progress.
I dont think we can go beyond this point.
That was a nice long walk. Im pretty satisfied now.
Im so tired Nikki, youre too energetic
Then lets go back and report to Student Affairs.
Our long walk in the Abyss didnt seem to hurt our grade at all, we got an A...
Yes, Ive been informed. You moved the transport device, right?
Ill give you the stamp for finishing it. Please take our your Handbook.
We had the school Marathon today.
Watch Us Run
Depending on how you do, you will get units and rewards, so dont slack.
Alright, when youre ready, everyone gather at The Heights!
Did you hear did you hear? A marathon contest!
Seems like you would be good at it. Im not really looking forward to it
Hehehe. My greatest rival will be Flaya.
Um, its by workshop, so Flays on our team
Hah hah hah! I challenge you, Vayne!
I wont lose to you.
But, its by workshop
The Principal gave a speech before the marathon, which lasted quite a while and ended up leaving us at a disadvantage.
Its worse than usual
Yeah. His speech is long.
Im gonna go to the restroom real quick
Oh, I think its about to end.
And, you must finish before sunset or else you will fail.
Well, everyone, good luck reaching the very top. Ready
It started, and Nikkis not back yet
Its too bad. Let us wait for her a little longer.
Well, its a perfect handicap for the rest of those guys.
We didnt have to wait long, fortunately.
Nikki! It started already.
Dont worry. Were not that far behind
Indeed. Very easily recoverable! Lets go!
Some other students even tried to ambush us along the way, I dont get it.
Huh Whats going on?
Shawn: We dont want to come in last place You guys are gonna give up here!
They were total jokes, though.
Peoples grades are on the line. This is only normal.
Is that how it is?
I dont want to lose, but well run out of time if we deal with em all.
Yes. Let us try to avoid other people if we can.
We shouldnt have been surprised at who we couldnt avoid, though.
Give up your evil ways!
Does that mean You actually waited for us?
We were in the lead, so I said we should just win the whole thing, you know.
Shut up! Grades versus fighting them, which is more important?
Okay, okay. I get it, so dont yell at me.
Hmph. Fine. Normally, I wouldnt even consider you worthy opponents
But, for the sake of your spirit, Ill fight especially hard for you!
Bark all you want! Ill make you regret it!
Professor Feinnes Alchemy 101: Marathon
Okay, so to win the Marathon we want to end up getting up to the Huffin Tree in about five hours. You can skip a lot of effort by jumping across some gaps in the middle area, and make sure you sword slash any enemy thats in the way. Tony and Renee are pretty easy to defeat here, they are at the strength they were in the battle arena chapter fortunately. Anyway, winning the marathon will get us an A and one of each stat fruit, consumables that raise stats.
They were pretty winded after all the running to get this far ahead I think.
Well, I did have a feeling itd be this way
It seems your skills have improved, but youre still not good enough!
Flaya, lets just leave them alone and finish already.
Yeah, youre right.
You remember this!
*sigh * Well, now we ended up losing both the marathon and the fight.
Are you mad?
Hmm, not really. It was pretty fun, I guess.
Nrhh Next time, Ill get them for sure
Hope you can beat them before graduation
With them out of the way we managed to win the race.
Nrah!? How dare you steal the glory!
It doesnt matter.
*pant * *pant * Youre all so fast
Congratulations! You guys win!
Though, I saw this result before we even started.
Im proud to be your teacher. Go get your units from Student Affairs.
Yes, thank you.
And they had a special reward for us
Oh yes! I heard you won. Congratulations!
Th-thank you very much.
Then this is the first place reward.
Ill stamp your units, so please take out your Handbooks as well.
