The room returns to the bright shade.
Oh, thats where the Valeria Heart went.
I know how you feel, Rush. That took forever.
Music: The Final Sacrifice
I can do this!
Oh come on. Why wont you die?!
He seems really serious about his let the Remants eat everyone plan.
The shockwave blows everyone back.
Then this is what you choose? To be someone elses weapon? A tool? So long as you leave them unchecked, thats all you are - Marshall.
Its not true! Mr. David
the generals, even the people of the Academy
they would NEVER use me!!
The globes slow.
They, and Mom and Dad, and everyone
have always worked hard to make the world a place where Im not a Marshall! Im just a normal girl!
And even if they fail
RUSH WOULD PROTECT ME!!
Uh, so anyone else got any ideas?
Uh oh, I think he made Rush mad.
This power you would choose to destroy all Remnants?!
But Rush! If you do that then you
*pant* *pant* I know
Its suicide because
Im a Remnant too, right?
Not even Rush was thick enough to miss all the billboard-sized hints dropped.
But I guess the rest of the party was?
But its not like I can just let this happen!
Youve all done so much for me I cant let you die!
Dave, sorry I dont think youre gonna have any Remnants left after this.
But itll be okay. People will figure out how to live without us!
Right Itll be all right, Rush.
Well get by somehow.
And hes gone.
Irina falls to her knees.

I guess this is the usual spot where the LPer goes over the entire LP and sums up the game. I guess Ill give that a shot.
I didnt really go into this LP with a plan. In fact I mostly just started the LP on a whim. There was a very short time between recording the test footage, making the test post, and then making the LP. It was substantially more work than expected, but it always is. This is the first game Ive done an LP of which has substantial cinematic cutscenes. Finding the right shots and the right pacing could be tricky at times.
Really great music in this game. Of course I say that a lot.
They did a great job too.
And of course the people who gave voice to the characters.
A lot of instruments in this.
So, Rush... As it should be clear by now, Rush was found in the Sacred Lands by his parents during one of their explorations. At one point when he was very young, he wandered back there, and his mother Marina used Marions Blessing to seal his memory so he wouldnt return. Then they moved to Eulam island, a place with no Remnants to keep Rush (and Irina) as far from them as possible.
This interfered with Rushs role, which was to be a Warden of the Remnants, protecting them from people. What the exact duties of the Warden are is unknown. The Conqueror was another mitra-form Remnant who could step in and assume Rushs role if needed (which it was). From the music, I believe that his title was Activator, but dont ask me what that means either.
What will you do now?
Whadda ya think? Im going back. Theyre waiting for me.
I'll be doing the bonus dungeon and showing the rest of the bonus bosses.
Next Time: ???
