|LMAO, Leder's lorebomb is STILL going... Not that I mind, I'm like, really into this story right now, I don't even care about getting back to the gameplay because this story is so damn good.|
Let me also talk about Osohe Castle. Apparently, long ago, a kingdom existed on this island, centered around the king of Osohe. However, when we arrived on the White Ship, the people of this kingdom were gone. It seems they had left the islands, fearing the Dragon's eventual awakening someday. Before boarding the White Ship, Princess Kumatora was an infant who had lost her mother and father. Upon coming to these islands, she was given to the Magypsies to raise, and given the role of princess of Osohe Castle. Wess and Duster being her retainers was another part of the fabricated "story".
Osohe Castle is one of the few and precious relics of this island's "past". We crafted our story in haste, so the people inside it have very little "past" or "history". Have you noticed no one in Tazmily can talk about things from 100 or 1000 years ago? In truth, we HAD wanted to create an entire plethora of myths and legends... but our story was made in such a hurry that we weren't able to. It's a real shame.
I'm sure that much of what I'm saying, you'd rather not hear, but it's the truth. Have you listened to everything so far?
Truthfully, we had no idea how Tazmily Village would turn out. But things actually went rather well. The people who had arrived on the White Ship had fully taken to their new identies. They believed they had always lived together peacefully. It was when a person by the name of Porky stumbled upon these islands that everything started to go amok. It seems he used a "Time Distorter" machine to travel through time and space at will. However, he was apparently shut out from all other times and spaces and tumbled into this era and these islands. Even worse, he used his Time Distorter to bring many people from other eras here. The Pigmasks, as well as everyone in New Pork City, were all brought here and brainwashed by Porky.
This Porky fellow seems to view these islands as his own personal "toy box", with which he can do anything he wants. He would take animals apart and recombine them to make creepy, new "Chimeras". As a child-like dictator, he began doing whatever he pleased, including building Thunder Tower and forming his own army. Porky eventually learned the White Ship secret because of a traitor among the Magypsies.
Do you understand about the intruder known as Porky?
Wow... I guess all those familiar NPCs that got brought into the game later on after Porky infiltrated, they literally ARE the same characters as from EarthBound.
Also, this Magypsy traitor plot point is really good... I wasn't expecting it at all... Is my theory about the innkeeper being the traitorous Magypsy, Locria correct...? If so, no wonder he looks so ashamed all the time.
This traitor was known as Locria, the seventh Magypsy, and the only one you haven't met yet.Damn, I was wrong?
...Actually, now that I think of it... couldn't Fassad be Locria? That might be it...
After Locria joined forces with Porky, Porky learned about the White Ship people and the secret of the sleeping Dragon. Porky decided to pull the Needles to wake the Dragon, so he could use the power for himself. The Dragon is the power of the very earth itself, you see. It's said that whoever pulls the sealing Needles will become the Dragon's master. However, only a very select few are capable of pulling the Dragon's Needles. Apparently, neither the Magypsies nor Porky have that capability. Yet, the Needles are being pulled now. That means Porky is somehow controlling someone who can control the Dragon's power!
...We have to put a stop to Porky's antics. If we don't, the world will be completely destroyed again, and it will spell the true end for everything. For Porky, that might be the ultimate pleasure, but we can't allow it to happen. We, the last handful of people there are, absolutely can't allow it to happen. Lucas. It seems you're a chosen one, with the ability to pull the Needles sealing the Dragon away. You MUST pull hte Dark Dragon's Needle with your own hands, and pass your heart to on to the Dragon. Let this be my one and only order to you as your "leader".
Do you understand everything about "The Dragon's Awakening"?
I hear that six of the Dragon's Needles have already been pulled. Deep in the earth, the Dragon is likely beginning to stir from its sleep now. Supposedly, the last Needle is somewhere here in New Pork City. Porky has been gathering everything that lives on these islands into New Pork City to prepare for the final Needle's pulling. It's possible that he's planning to hold one final, twisted party. But now is our chance to change this looming crisis into a golden opportunity. All things may come to an end... or new and bountiful things may begin. Wouldn't you like to help that happen?
Lucas. You were once a weak, fragile boy, but now you've been given a tremendous role to fulfill. Now that you know everything, including everything I'm sure you'd rather not know, the time has come for you to save the future of all life as we know it.
"God won't make you bear more than you can carry."
I'm sure you've heard that phrase before. Know that you aren't fighting alone. Everyone, and I do mean everyone, will lend you their support.
That was a long story, but that is the end of everything I have to tell you. Did you understand it all?
Hmm... At first I was thinking the 7th Needle might actually be in that sanctuary temple where you registered your player name... but no it's actually on New Pork City. It seems like Porky already knows where it is, too, and is just saving it to put on a big show? Damn... this is some dire shit.
Only the Magypsies really know the Needles' locations, so I don't know where to find them. But, from the way Porky and the others have been acting, I would say they're now very close to reaching the seventh Needle. Please, Lucas. Be the one who pulls the final Needle. Porky issues his orders from the 100th floor of the Empire Pork Building. Start by jumping into the fray and storming into the building. After that, you can start looking for clues.
It's been such a long time since I've spoken to anyone. And now I'm exhausted. This stinkbug should remember everything I've just said. Take him with you. That way, if you happen to forget anything I've said here, you can ask him to repeat it. Will you go with them, Mr. Stinkbug?
