|Phendrana Drifts - First Visit|
Flickerbats are deceptive creatures. The only way to track them reliably is with x-ray imaging. They fly ceaselessly, hunting insects and other small prey that float on the air currents. Flickerbats tend to fly in cyclical hunting patterns, using primitive sonar to navigate.
The new personnel must report to the South Research Facility. Failure to report will be penalized by a 30% ration cut and extra duty.
Western Temple is in Phase 2 lockdown. All projects are postponed. Under no circumstances are personell to attempt access.
Ballistics support personnel report to Research Lab Hydra. Lockdown containment plan 3A in effect until further notice.
They must be really freaked out about something.
The door to the left is the only path I can get to, and it requires finding a slightly hidden platforming path that isn't obvious. But wait, the door is shielded, need to find a deactivation switch hidden somewhere on this shoreline.
I see an obvious spiderball path up near the top of these buildings... and another sheet of ice blocking something in the corner.
As the Great Poison reachers ever further into the planet, we Chozo begin to feel the gnawings of despair--before it is too late, we now make our last stand. We have begun to build a temple to contain this darkness: at its heart we will place a Cipher, a mystical lock powered by twelve Artifacts and filled with as much power as we Chozo can harness. We wonder, though--even when we are done, will it be too late? And will the power of the temple, and the Cipher itself, prove strong enouhg to hold back the poisonous tide that even now swells within the ground, threatening all life?This writing is too good...
You also can scan some frozen fish under the ice half-pipe.
Another Chozo lore wall along the way.
So many creatures suffer beneath the blight upon the land, and we Chozo are no exception. But for all of our pain, we can at least believe in the promise of the future. We have come to believe that a time may never come when we can once again open the door and banish the darkness we've contained. Even so, our vigilance will forever remain. We believe that on some far-off day, a savior will come and continue what we have begun. For that savior, we will leave our ancient weapons and armor -- the soul who can gather them will be the Entrusted One, the only being who can reverse the evil that grows here.
So... I guess these bombu enemies were placed here by the Chozo, in order to keep out anyone who's not their prophecized savior. Kinda reminds me of the Zelda series and how (Skyward Sword spoilers)
Hylia sets up all these puzzles and trials meant for her chosen hero to complete in order to gain new abilities, or (Minish Cap spoilers)
how the minish people leave rupees in the grass in order to help out the Hylians...
Well... I guess that's all there is to see in Phendrana for now... I guess next I'll take the Magmoor elevator back into Chozo Ruins. I know at least one place I can use the Boost Ball.
