Shin Megami Tensei 1

Part 27


Time to fuse Pascal. He is sure to be useful if there's no problem with the level disparity. Would've been useful in the last battle, too. *grumblegrumble*

In Greek mythology, Cerberus or Kerberos (Greek Κέρβερος, Kerberos, "demon of the pit"), was the hound of Hades-a monstrous three-headed dog (sometimes said to have 50 or 100 heads) with a snake for a tail and serpentine mane.

He guarded the gate to Hades (the Greek underworld) and ensured that the dead could not leave and the living could not enter. His sister was the Chimera and his brother was Orthrus. He is the offspring of Echidna and Typhon.

He was overcome several times:

* Hercules' final labour was to capture Cerberus, which he did by wrestling it into submission.
* Orpheus used his musical skills to lull Cerberus to sleep.
* Hermes put him to sleep with water from the river Lethe.
* In Roman mythology, The Sybil of Cumae lulled Cerberus to sleep with drugged honeycakes in order to permit Aeneas fuller entry to the underworld.
* In a Greek tale, Psyche also lulled Cerberus to sleep with drugged honeycakes.

In the Greek Oracle of the Dead at Cumae in southern Italy, the recently excavated subterranean shrine was found to contain chains fixed to the wall for three large dogs before the entrance to the shrine of Hades and Persephone. The three dogs would have represented Cerberus in this ancient temple.

Missing a couple of heads and looking to me more like a weird lion than a dog, but eh, whatever. STAMOS HAS THE HOUND OF HELL.

Of course. This is quite useful.


And so, Kerberos is lost. After just two random battles.
Goddamn way to choose a moment for NOT BEING HORRIBLY UNFAIR with the random encounter rate, SMT.

But Stamos just arrived here. And he is going to find his dog.

Orc is a word used to refer to various tough and warlike humanoid creatures in various fantasy settings, particularly in the stories of Middle-earth written by J. R. R. Tolkien and derivative fictions. Orcs are commonly portrayed as misshapen humanoids with brutal, warmongering, sadistic, yet cowardly tendencies. They are variously portrayed as physically stronger or weaker than humans, but always high in numbers. They often ride wolves or wargs. In many role-playing and computer games, though not in Tolkien's works, Orcs have green skin (earning the name "Greenskins" in most games) and have faces that resemble a cross between a pig and a primate.

It's Steven! What is he doing here, and HOW DID HE GET HERE?
Oh damn, did not capture the first two or three messages. I am a failure. And I don't have a save for that moment anymore. *slaps self*

And out of the lab. That means that Stamos now has access to the rest of the city.
That means that he can search for Pascal (both of them ) in the city.

New kind of zombie. Notice that she is naked. Zombieboobs.

(can't find information about this, requesting assistance)

Will Stamos find Pascal? Or the other Pascal? Maybe in the next update! Or maybe not. I dunno.
