Turns out my cursed sword causes me damage every time I hit with Aguro, but damn does it do a ton of damage. I'll keep it until the next time I can buy shit.
HUGE BUNNY! Seriously though, those things are scary
Here's the tower. . . the inside isn't very exciting so I didn't take a lot of screenshots, I mostly just got lost until I remembered the layout. I used to draw maps of the dungeons when I was a kid, so I know the layouts pretty well up until you get to Artea.
GOBLINS! Much easier than the ones from before, though.
A random plaque, what the hell.
Okay here's the apprentice guy:
Hold on, I have this letter.
Oh from my friend in Grenoble, yes, he helped me out when I was younger. How can I help you?
Tell me about Artea.
I can't. It's not that easy, you see. I must determine if you are worthy first!
Oh geez, how do I do that?
A one-on-one battle!
Aw fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck!
First I drained him to lower his defense points. . . except he kept raising his agility and getting multiple turns for my one. Jerk!
I had some arrows sitting around, which saved my ass jesus christ.
He kept using potions, like the JERK HE IS!
But then I eventually killed him.
Are you. . . coming on to me?
To meet Artea, you must travel south. Pass through three towns until you come to three islands, each with a tower. In the middle of those three islands is Elfrea, where Artea lives. Beware! You will be derailed by tons of fetch quests on your way, but do not falter! These are just tests. Oh and PS, you need an Elf to enter Elfrea.
Okay so I have to go do a bunch of crap and then find an Elf to get there. Okay, sounds simple, right? Guys?
Let's check out some of these other towns!
Also, funny story, you can jump out of towers to leave quickly, like so:
No broken necks or anything!
Hey another shrine, cool. Free healing!
Hey a NPC on the world map?!
Anyway, here's town #1, I forget the name, Falkieomnakjn or something.
I hope I don't have to go there, I hate ghosts!
Aw that's sad, we should make sure she's okay.
It's okay mark, no medicine will make me better. My life is just a black abyss, I'll soon die and it will all be over.
Fear not, I will go to the kingdom of Medan, where I live, and bring you the "Hope Ruby." You see, it grants wishes, and so you can become well!
Okay Mark, just come back soon.
Aw how cute, he really thinks that'll help her not die this is kind of depressing.
Let's check out Medan!
Sweet I'll go check it out.
Hey Mark is here too
huh yeah, I came here to get the "Hope Ruby," but the King wouldn't give it to me, he wouldn't even see me! WHAT AM I GOING TO DO I PROMISED! WAAAAH!
uh okay buddy, I mean, I guess he's really hell bent on that, but uh I don't think having a ruby is going to help. Well anyway we should check it out.
I'll bet they keep the coins too. It's a scam, I know it! Of course, that doesn't stop Lufia from doing it.
Ask me what I wished for
What did you
IT'S A SECRET!
Okay well, after some wandering around I ended up in the basement.
Collecting the coins again?
It's my job, duh.
*sigh* alas, we tell people it's a "hope ruby," but all it is is a piece of glass!
But the coins sustain our country!
what if the people found out?
That's grave indeed. They use a fake ruby to make money off of stupid people. What a shitty place I hope it burns. Let's go tell the king he's a jerk.
"I haven't told anyone this secret, but I'm sure I can confide in you, random stranger from a foreign land who random just entered my throne room!"
Amon too, huh? I hope not. Because then I'd have to fight him and seriously, I don't wanna!
Empty, you say? I'd better investigate later.
Mark ran by as I was leaving, followed by a guard and another guy.
Huh. I'll bet Mark stole it. Well anyway, next update we'll find out what mark does with the ruby, and maybe fight some ghosts or something. UNTIL NEXT UPDATE (tomorrow)
