Last time, Mythe went to Loch Vaan to talk to the fortuneteller Sapphire in hopes of learning the whereabouts of a girl named Tiffon, who had apparently sold the photograph to Fugar that caused Mythe to go into an obsessive craze.

However, instead of Sapphire, her younger sister Ruby appeared and gave a bad reading, telling Mythe to go to the bottom of a well and look for Tiffon there. And that's where we'll start today.

But first, I want to mention that each character has theme music specific to their scenario, which plays when you're in the 'town' segment of the game (when you're not on adventures), just like in the Romancing SaGa games. Mythe's is particularly cool. You can listen to it here. Ruby's has a really different feel to it, though I never mentioned it when I was playing her story. You can listen to that one here if you want. They're both really cool, though. All the music in this game is cool.

But anyway, let's go well-diving.

gurl u in here?? )

Well, after finishing Ruby's scenario, I was pretty hyped to start a new game, so I went ahead and jumped right into Mythe. His introduction was actually pretty interesting! I've actually started it before but I quit before even finishing the first little scene in Fugar's Mansion LOL. So honestly I didn't remember much of anything.

Mythe's scenario seems like it might be more story-heavy than Ruby's (well, I feel like every character has more story than Ruby did, honestly, except maybe Armic who I have yet to play...) so I'm pretty excited about that. And while I originally did not have much interest in Mythe, I already am growing pretty attached to him. He's definitely unique at the very least. And he has a nice voice.

If for some reason you see the facebook album, don't be afraid of its 100+ images. I screencap every line of the story for my own reference but I don't plan on embedding them. And sometimes I just take like 20 screencaps of the same one thing because I'm trying to catch an animation frame or something XD This will probably still be pretty long, though, because a lot happens in the beginning, actually.

More than "Let's go find the kitty, Hiro!" *4 hours figuring out how to pick up a key*

But yeah, let's go ahead and set the rules for this scenario. I'm not going to be doing a challenge run because my last three times playing this game have been challenges, two of them particularly obnoxious (Ruby's was fun though), and I've never played Mythe's scenario before, so I'd like to just play it casually/regularly.

My only rule is going to be no save scumming of any kind. Yup, I'm even going to play with axes. Since I want these play diaries to be pretty thorough, I figure it'd be weird to just completely ignore axes. Actually, I don't mind using them so much in general, I just realize how cheap that axe art which shall not be named can get... but honestly the more I understand the game, the less OP I really think it is -- there's a lot of arts that come very close in power, and honestly there are even better things out there in the right combinations IMO.

But yeah, enough of that rambling, let's get on with the show. And it's actually quite a show!

well, the time has come. Ruby has visited all but one of the Seven Wonders, and has collected... some... Tetra Forces. It's time for her for final travel with Iskandar, to Hanging Garden.

This is going to, obviously, contain major spoilers without further warning for the rest of Ruby's scenario and her ending.

The time to tackle the final of the six Wonders before the final adventure. This is one of the more interesting Wonders, and actually a lot easier than I remember it being.

Read more... )

But for now, we have subadventuring to do. I want to learn some more magic with Sapphire, get a L4 bow panel for Roy, and glimmer those last few arts that I'd like to have for the end. I have decent equipment, and plenty of good panels now. Not perfect, but I think we'll be okay. We've gotten through some pretty rough spots, and the party is pretty powerful at this point, just missing a few key things I think we need.

So, we have finally gotten to our third wonder filling up a complete party of seven. There are still more characters we can recruit, but at least now there are no empty slots in the party. More of the story seemed to unfold, and we got to go to the festival of Regina Leone, which is kind of a big thing (but wasn't terribly interesting in Ruby's story as it seemed almost optional.

We also get to recruit another of my fav characters (OK, I really like most of the characters in this game) and visit one of my favorite Wonders. (... OK, I like most of the wonders, too...)

So, let's start from the beginning. There are some more minor spoilers as we go, then marked more major spoilers at the end. Also, this entry may seem long, but so much of it is just screenshots I thought were pretty so most of the length is from that.

It's time to start taking on the seven wonders...! The more I play Ruby's story again, the more I'm starting to realize this was probably meant to be the final scenario you play :P Almost nothing is explained to you and there are so many random little cameos and reference to anything else with no context lol. Anyway, on to Starship Anchor, the first of the wonders we have to conquer... for Sapphire... for some reason.

This post is going to contain a bit of story spoilers for both Ruby and Laura's scenario (yeah, Ruby has a Laura spoiler in her story LOL) as well as the solution to Starship Anchor. I marked where the spoilers start, but just be warned.

Also we meet like... three of my favorite sub-characters (one playable) on this adventure :D

I know I've played more than this but I don't know exactly how this unfolds after this. This is as far as I really can remember clearly. So from here on out the story should be surprising to me too XD But uh... the story is pretty much told in this fashion for the whole game so it will be a lot of ... trying to figure out even what is going on and who these people are and stuff because it will hardly make sense XD

Spoilers are marked :O

Still not Isky >_>; )

That's all my adventuring for tonight. Not too much happened XD

BTW random note: this game has a pretty stellar voice cast. Lots of popular VAs in here. Tiffany Grant, Hilary Haag, Vic Mignogna, etc.
