Part 8Well that was fast I couldn't resist playing more, especially now that I have my image hosting working and it's a little faster to update with the ease of copy/paste.
So where were we? Ah yes. Last we checked, we saved King Richard in the nick of time, now all we have to do is figure out where to go next!
Heading south from Forcena leads you to the cleft of the Earth. Interesting
So THERE'S the other side of the bridge. Well, just making sure. Didn't want to uncover any plothole or something
Another crazy man in a clown suit with a cannon, hey it worked last time
HERE WE GO!
Back in Maia, the king guy said head to Byzel. I hope those Pirates aren't there.
Hey it's night-time, better head to the grotto they got goin' in downtown.
Wuh-oh, slave trader
Anyone here actually believe this guy/girl/thing?
Red eyes? Some where genetic clone baby, I assume.
Palo is a very nice place.
Ah dammit, the navarre thieves took the place over
Know what? I wasn't paying attention
Bitch, get the man his whiskey.
Hey, it's Neko from Secret of Mana! Sup? ... hello?
Path to the Heavens, sounds heavenly
... And I've reached the top!
Hey, for a place so high this place is pretty nice..
[ Image Missing ]Aw fuck. Sleeping flowers.
He certainly didn't help keep that Faerie alive
Whelp, we're headed back to Byzel already. That's so far away
... Or is it?
Hey look, we're in Byzel already
Well that was easy.
It's back to the Rabite forest, with a new pink Rabite, named Rabillion or something.
What might this be?
Better use that hammer I got.
Apparently talking to statues make things happen.
Smells like victory.
Kacey has a way with words...
After searching, no Don anywhere.
Uh-oh, Jail Bait is talking, and she can't speak particularly well...
How did he know?
Corobokkles are dickheads. Whelp, better head back to Palo.
Up the path to the heavens, we find the corridor of wind...
The game attempts to full you with a button-pushing puzzle. Luckily, I thwarted it and emerged victorious.
Hey we're outside, must mean we're headed somewhere!
God-Beast? Sounds scary
Sounds like a plan.
That Knight is killing Jinn! Bastard!
Tzenker, eh? Looks difficult.
But this Harpy thing is very weak against Diamond Missile!
Another exploding monster.
Huff, puff and kill some ninjas.
ATTAAAACK! LEROOOOOY JENKIIIIINS!
Uh-oh, not all the 's went to sleep.
Trained monsters? As opposed to wild monsters?
Hawk is stalking me again.
Aww That's one less thing I can't kill.
At least he didn't touch Jail Bait. Then he'd really be fucked.
At least help me out, dammit
Save point. Something big is about to happen.
Final door. What surprises lie ahead?
That's a very pretty fireplace...
Oh, it's a monster. A boss, at that.
One that drops out enemies and has no elemental weakness. This is hard!
Mom, I broke the fireplace.
2 Ninjas are blocking my way. This could be an issue...
Oh fuck, they're combining
This was a seriously fucking hard fight. What I would have given for a good offense here
Finally. I'll probably face them again. This is not looking good for me.
All that work just to get a stupid castle back.
Monster? Who wouldn't want to manipulate Ninjas?
Who wants this stupid castle anyways?
Amazonesses is such a long word.
Oh yeah, that's why we went to Rolante in the first place!
... It's that anthropomorphic cat. I'm getting the slight feeling that the creators of this game were furries
We all know Hawk is a furry!
Storytime! Again! So many of these!
That's the most uneventful exit I've ever seen
... And, they're gone.
Well, I guess I'm supposed to head back to Forcena, but what do you think? I've got access to a Mana stone! I could sit and grind for ages and then get my first set of class upgrades! What should I do? Go on, or level up and get kickass stronger? I still don't have all the spirits yet
