Part 10: Pale Inheritance

Chapter 8: Pale Inheritance

Previously on Deception IV, Ada the thief girl revealed that she was the one who killed the king somehow, then was stabbed to death. Also, at least a dozen guards died by Allura's hands.

I bought a useless rolling bomb trap

Which let me buy a vacuum floor. Now I'm trapping in style.

A medieval gun smuggler. You know, for all the hate I throw at this game, I have to credit it for not having cyborg bomb people, robots, or rocket launchers... yet.

That has to be the worst ambition I have ever heard of.

There are a lot of husband-beaters in this kingdom.

So basically he's exactly like everyone else in this game.

Trident. I hope he was at least named after the spear and not the gum.

These people are supposed to heal allies or something, but all they ever do is try to attack Allura with their weak-ass scepters. It's kind of pathetic.

Laziest assassin ever.

Not a clone, not a double, and not a "one hit then run away" encounter. It's the real deal and he's not coming back. At least he'd better be. Anyway, on with the show.

I think we just stumbled into a drug deal.

What? Password? What is wrong with you?

She's not a guy at all, you dummy.

Yeah, good luck with that.

Oh sure, now you call her a girl.

Oh ho ho! What a comedic mix-up!

Uhhhh... Kindness? I guess? Is this one of those word association tests?

Looks like we won.

Oh god damn it.

See above killing.

I don't even know who you are! Why would I care about your stupid family! Just leave Allura alone!

And now she's in the water. I don't know what's going on anymore.


And then, despite being in full suits of armor, a batch of knights manage to sneak up on Allura.

Raising the bridge here somehow glitched the game, making the guy vibrate through the gates as he died.

Here, you can see Dentyne being hit by a stray buzz saw.

I really, really, really like the throne room.

That's what you get for being lazy.

"But you're so far away."
"It's a figure of speech."

"... Forget it."


(He is talking about the TMD and everything in Kagero. This is Kagero II and he is referencing a past game.)

(They served the Timenoids. The blue skinned Timenoids that were featured in the game Deception II.)

(This has nothing to do with Kagero or Timenoids, and is kind of a silly thing to do.)

Finnegan has two very stupid attacks. One where he does this sort of dash teleport thing and the one shown here, where he spins around waving his sword. You can just sort of casually walk around it.

It's handy for setting him on fire, though.

I don't think that's how it works.

Don't worry, Jais. Allura's fine. Thanks for your concern. It's good to know that you care.


Finnegan talks TMD here or here

Finnegan dies here or here

We're halfway through with the game! Next time, Allura hits the old castle. Giant cannons may be involved.
