Youre a mole. You guys arent well known for your keen eyesight at the best of times.
Would you please lead me to my house? I will follow you.
I dont know where your yknow what, Ill just walk around until you tell me were there. Hows that?
Not much better than if I was doing it myself, but I cant really complain. At least youll keep me from walking into a crocodile.
Youre assuming a lo wait, where did she go?
Oh, I think I have heard this story there once was a cute female mole living around her but she was taken away by evil creatures. I am scared
Youre scared? Im the one she was trying to haunt!
A dead mole girls ribbon. This cant possibly end badly.
In the meantime, theres a few other animals to check in on since were in the area. This guy takes us to
A giant gem? Do you think I not would have found this on my own?
The Masters Emblems are all over the world they are fairly difficult to find. Collect all 8 emblems, will not require gems when casting magic.
Youre now officially my favorite jewel fairy.
Thats great and all, but Ill just be going now.
The first Emblem, Emblem C, is held by the squirrel wife squire? of the squirrel who gave us our upgraded sword. No fetch quest, no go find this thing for me and Ill give you something good. She just hands it to us.
At least SOMEONE knows how to show proper gratitude.
-Note: Theres two moles behind the text box. Wonderful design here.
Like a ribbon?
Th.. thats Monmos ribbon! Al alright, I will move if you give that to me.
Thats not moving, thats disappearing wait
Wait, promise youre not a ghost too.
One day, Monmo was captured by evil. He tried to rescue her but never came back. Suddenly he appeared, I had no idea what happened to him. Anyway, take this bracelet and revive GreenWood.
I just indulged a ghost moles fetish for another ghost mole by giving him one of her personal items so he could keep it Master, is this truly your plan?
Eh? What? Sure, exactly as planned.
Lord GodJesus, are you paying any attention?
Not when youre playing necro-mole matchmaker, no.
I didnt know they were.. I think Im going to go kill something now.
At this point, weve finished just about everything we can in GreenWood so our next step is the area boss. Its somehow less impressive than the previous one, probably because we have some room to maneuver.
There are actually three iterations of this boss, with different attacks. The first one out of the bat has a lightning attack and otherwise just kind of hops around.
Its got a full-sized health bar, but once we get it down were not done even if the explosion would make you think otherwise
Instead we get the statue on the right coming to life and throwing what looks like a water based attack at us. Im not even sure, since its not like we get a lot of information on these.
And the third is fire elemental, which actually makes sense if you think about the three shrines we passed through. It would have made a bit more sense if the order was the same as the temples, but beggars cant be choosers.
Once youve got it down, its easy enough to avoid more damage while you whittle their life away. We get 30 experience per statue, which you might recognize as a fairly paltry sum for a boss battle. The real experience gain comes from monsters lairs as people have pointed out. For finishing the boss we release the Woods guardian who is interesting.
I am the Guardian of the Woods. Thank you for releasing me. I will give you the Green Stone upon your return.
Yeah, we covered that already.
I have been watching the world for a long time.
So, what did you need me for?
A bone? Or a.. a oh please dont let it be a dead mole girl
You will need this Green Stone someday, so please take it.
Thats a relief. Thanks, and good luck with your.. being a tree.
With that, we can move on to the third realm out in the middle of a selection of islands. I dont recall if Ive mentioned before, but Im pretty sure thats the ship from Super Mario World up there.
Lord GodJesus, I think we may have a problem
Wait, you mean I didnt give you gills?
No Master, it is a peculiar oversight.
Cant imagine what I was thinking. Well, good luck learning to swim!
You are completely sitting this one out, arent you?
Im famous for helping those who help themselves. Youll be fine, you big baby.
