Part 14

Boats boats boats. Boat rides always end well.

What's that supposed to mean?

Don't worry about it.

These aren't exactly the safest waters, you know. That sort of thing doesn't leave me feeling totally at ease.

You'll be fine! Go do... whatever. I'm going to go get a drink.

You managed to find your fairy, right? Can't you look on the bright side?

Can't YOU just drop it, already?

Hey, I'm back.

Savour this, the only clue of Fron's motives you'll ever get.

So he should know what to do with this shiny rock, right? Is it okay if I keep repeating exposition over and over?


Nothing? Well, I'll take that as a yes!

Yeah, just super!

Hi, Captain!

It's as if the tile-based system couldn't handle waves.

It's been lovely, so far.


Come on, Fron! Isn't it super?


I'm not sure what just happened.

Of course. That's our destination, Pascal island.

Did he buy the island and name it after himself?

Ah, well if I remember correctly he bought it BECAUSE it shared his name.

Hey, that's my grandfather you're talking about!

I wonder why there'd be another ship on the ocean? Oh well, I'm sure it's nothing.

Well, I guess he is pretty much crazy, but I still love him!

Of course! It runs on power from the water spirit, right?

So, wait. Do you lock a water spirit in the engine and force it to power your ship or something? How does this work?

You'd have to ask the man himself. It's a bit too complicated for me.

Well he does have a doctorate. Except I'm thinking he just made it up.

I believe that.

That's Pascal, all right.

I hope he patented it, at least.

Is there WORK to do on this ship at any point?

I sure hope you got this cheap.

That was horrible, Fron. You should be made to write an apology to the concept of a maze.

Lucky it doesn't seem to actually BE one. Oh no... wait... I'm wrong. It is.

Finally, something to keep me awake.

Crap. Pirates?

Pirates are pretty cool. A bit clichéd, but cool.

What about all the killing and theft and, you know, piracy?

Well that's why people like them.

Seriously, though, I wouldn't worry about these guys.

They're pretty much the stupidest pirates ever.

The gimmick for this fight is that you have a few sailors helping you out. Needless to say, they don't do much. Except the captain. He's alright. He doesn't die, at least. Oh, and he takes on pirates with his bare hands.

The pirates are about as weak as the sailors, there's just more of them. More keep coming out of the door on their ship.

With a little help from Tia, we clear them off our ship. Let's begin the pirate-killing operation!

Ha, you think you can take me coming one at a time?

If only these ships had actual sails. You could swing off a rope or something.

It's a bit hard to show like this, but Fron shoots a bunch of little circles that do a bit of damge. Two or three of these could take down a pirate.

These guys have no chance! I could take them all on myself. We're really gonna get through this!

What? They're already almost gone! I'm taking over THEIR SHIP! Are you completely insane? I'm going to-

So, uh... the captain punched Fron in the back of the head and knocked him out. They got captured by the pirates. After that, all the pirates got food poisoning and were rolling around completely incapacitated... so the Captain... somehow he managed to keelhaul himself, all the while shouting "You can't do this to me! I surrendered!" I...really don't know what's going on anymore.
