And now it's time for Grenoble and the Old Cave, a mistranslation of ancient cave!
But first (while I level up and gain some cash) let's check out the local monsters!
Not fearsome like the four I fought as a boss, these are only minidemons. They're weak as hell, although they can cast flash.
More newts, you know what that means!
Roozard, a cross between a rooster and a lizard. Who the fuck comes up with this shit, seriously?!
Those things are sweet, though, since each one drops over 100 gold, so I was able to get my money pretty quickly.
This is grenoble. It's pretty exciting, let me tell you. Actually, I'll be coming back here several times throughout the game.
I guess it helps to ask the first person you meet, who stands by the town enterance for all time.
What's a spring basement? I guess I'll ask around more.
Uh, naked girls? 50 Gold pieces isn't a lot. . .
Old cave, huh? Sounds. . . boring. But treasure is good, let's see what the hell he's talking about.
So they give me a task for the old cave, you say? A fetch quest, if you will.
He's so fucking pro, you can't even handle that shit.
Hey old man, do you know Artea?
The Artea that fought at Doom Island, I may have heard of him. . .
Well, tell us what you know!
It isn't that simple. You know, do me a favor I'll do you one. . .
Well. . . I mean, we have Lufia here. . .
What the fuck?!
No no it's nothing like that! I need you to go into the old cave and get me the Fairy Kiss from the second floor. Only women can enter the room with it. And in 40 years, I've never been able to get another woman to do me a favor, so. . .
Alright we'll get it.
I guess we should go get this Fairy Kiss. We should get a "task" first, though.
Okay my task is to retreive the secret map. And while I'm there I'll get this gay Fairy Kiss.
Here's the cave, lot's of toxic marsh there. A NPC called it toxic marsh, so that's the official name I guess.
What a fucking boring job, all he does is says "yeah hit the switch to use the elevator."
In case you're retarded. Hey wait, this negates that guy's job, there's a sign that tells you what to do. I guess this guy also tells you to go to Grenoble if you don't have a task.
That was easy, but this is the first fucking task so. . . oh yeah, Fairy Kiss.
Hell yes, now I can make Aguro even more of a killing machine!
Tons of toxic marsh, and of course empty chests
I guess I'll send Lufia in by herself. God speed!
Oh shit she got attacked by. . . a single bat? How lame. Let's just get that shit and leave. Also note that, hilariously, the other treasures in this room are such girly things as earrings, a hair band, a dress, and heeled shoes. Stuff only WOMEN need.
Finally. One last thing:
DRAGON EGGS! There are eight dragon eggs in the world, once you find all eight, you take them to the egg dragon (hurr) and he grants you a wish, which are things like a full set of stat raising potions, a set of rings, and something else. Anyway, then he scatters his eggs again all over the world, and you can repeat this two more times. Luckily, in this game, the second and third times you look for eggs, they go to set chests. In Lufia II, they go to eight random opened chests in any dungeon you've been to. But enough about the superior second game, let's go get our info from that old bastard!
Wait, seriously? It took you forty years to find a woman to go into that room for you? You must not have wanted it very badly!
. . .
Yeah old man, you really suck ass at treasure hunting if
Look do you want the fucking info or not?!
Look, go to the northwest tower. A man who was Artea's apprentice lives there, he'll give you more info. However, he will only talk to you if you have a letter from me. Also, bring Mid Arrows because jesus christ he's hard as hell.
Yeah, seriously, the apprentice is hard, like almost all the boss fights in this game. Anyway, we have our next task but since I'm level 10 I can go to the third floor of the old cave! WOOOOOOOT!
Silver Wick? Silver won't burn, why would anyone make a wick out of it?
New floor means NEW ENEMIES!
The other thing is a zombie. Spiked newts, man, what else will these weird people think up?
. . . Wait, seriously? Fight? What's next, a magic using enemy called Magic? A frog called "frog"?
. . .
Well, at least that's kind of clever. It uses drain magic, get it?
Because Bronze wouldn't fit. Also, this is a shield for Lufia, yeah, I know how much sense that makes.
Also, I found a Broad Sword with huge attack, I can't wait to equip it!
Aw it's okay buddy But seriously, I think cursed items miss sometimes, or something. And you can't unequip them. You have to get them lifted at a church, and also they stay cursed forever. In Lufia II, you can permanently remove the curse from the item, but the stats on it change. Anyway.
HAHA Yeah right fuck you buddy, I'll keep it equipped.
Okay I'm going to go play some more, maybe I'll update again before work, who knows?!
Next up: Apprentice's tower!
