|Chapter 7 - The Seven Needles continued|
Okay, so to recap what's going on... so far 3 of the seven Magypsie needles have been pulled out... one in Osohe Castle pulled out by the Pigmask commander, and one in Murasaki Forest pulled out by Lucas... and 1 in Snowcap Mountain that the commander got to before Lucas could. Each time a needle is pulled out, the Magypsie who is gaurding that needle fades out of existence... The Magypsies have lived for a long time guarding these needles, waiting for the prophecized one to come and pull them out in order to save the world... they have lived for a long time guarding these needles, and they've long since accepted the fact that they will disappear when their needle is pulled... But there's also another part of the prophecy that says if one with evil intentions pulls out the needles, the world will fall to evil. At the 3rd needle in Snowcap Mountain, at that point I got stuck at a really hard boss that I might need to grind a bit for...
I forgot I had this "Enemy Wimperizer" item... maybe you're meant to start using this on bosses if you don't want to grind.
...or not. It doesn't even work on this Steel Mechorilla. oh and it's one-use then it's gone, regardless of whether it worked or not... wow what a great item.
Could it be maybe Kumatora's lightning attacks that are making him "short circuit" and go berserk? I'll try not using that anymore.
Like, I don't think you're meant to be able to survive for more than a few turns when he goes berserk... that's just insane. Even after a few Defense Up buffs on the whole team and Offense Down on it, it still isn't enough to survive a few turns without everybody being on healing duty every turn... I have no good "heal all" powers yet, and only PSI Shield alpha that only works one at a time and doesn't last long...
I can beat this thing easily if it never short circuits though... so just in case attacking is what triggers that, I'll do all the buffs/debuffs I can while guarding with Boney before I start attacking...
Ha! I was right... no short-circuit + going buff/debuff crazy at the start = ridiculously impossible boss battle turns pathetically easy
Oh yeah, Right before the boss battle, Lucas and the commander had an epic staredown... I think it's obvious by now who this commander guy is.
That masked man... Could he be the one pulling the Needles?!
Kumatora doesn't let you continue north without going back to check on Lydia first.
Lucas... someone besides you has pulled the needle. Whatever is inside that person's heart has been passed on to the Dark Dragon... You MUST pull the rest of the remaining Needles from here on out...Lydia tells us about the white box at the top of the mountain that they can ride back down on.
Also go and ask my little Pigmask friend what he wants to do now.
When I went back to talk to the Pigmask guy, who now has his helmet off... oh wait, is this the kid in Tazmily who got introduced to money, and hid it in the well? I think so...
I secretly listened in on your conversation. Me and you are enemies. Don't bother with me. Just go do what you need to do. I have no intention of helping you guys out. That Magypsy helped me out, though. Even though I'm a complete stranger. So I'm gonna stay here and look after his rabbits. Then we'll be even.
Get going already! Before another Needle gets pulled!I wonder if there are any other recurring Pigmask characters like this who turn out to be a character I know.
Tazmily Village 6
Wow... this part of the game is weird... it's like, are the Mr. Saturns trying to direct you toward the secret highway passage that Fassad came out of in Chapter 3... They're trying to keep you on the track towards racing to the next Needle instead of wasting time in Tazmily... but I'm gonna waste time in Tazmily anyway just in case there's some new dialog I might miss.
The gods are watching over you guys. You're incredible. You're amazing. Seriously, you're a real inspiration. We're right behind you, supporting you 100%, from the sidelines.I wonder if this guy is actually Flint in disguise, secretly following Lucas around everywhere and helping him on the sidelines the whole time... lol nah, that's unlikely...
I'm so glad they gave me train station patrol. This way, people like you can come talk to me. Had I been on mountain patrol instead, I'd only meet bears and stuff.
Ol' Beanstalk is gone, but sometimes I think I can still hear the sound of his bell.
At Mayor Pusher's house... it's mostly the same as before... I just realized "the sidest of side-characters" guy is constantly pacing from side to side in the hallway...
You know, however depressed you may get, as long as you have hope, there'll always be tomorrow. So try not to give up hope.some guy in Pusher's house:
And what's also important is humor!
I'm the one teaching Master Ollie about humor. Though I may not look it, I've been known as "Huck the Huckster" since childhood.
I'm not sure if all this dialog is "new" or if I just glossed over it before at the beginning of this chapter, but I'm really enjoying getting to know these side characters better.
That waitress from Club Titiboo, who complained about having to giggle at the end of every sentence, now she's looking for work in Tazmily, complaining about this village being boring... Everyone in Yado's Inn is set on moving to the big city now... and Abbot and Abbey are already packing to move...
Someone says the old woman who used to be in the retirement home has moved to New Pork City... high theory just now... maybe that old man who got taken away by the Pigmask army, screaming "I'm plenty alive, dagnabbit", maybe was also taken to New Pork City, against his will.
Only one of the dogs is left in the sheriff's office... The others all moved to New Pork City. This one dog who stayed is the only one who still prefers Tazmily.
