OcamposMoon Plays Terranigma

Part 44: Lord Kumari


Aside: After looking through a blog for all things Terranigma (some spoilers inside, I avoided the major ones!), I learn that the "gull" carrying Ark is actually a stork, or a migratory bird, of sorts. Character limitations had to make the stork a "gull."

We enter the long hall of Lord Kumari.

you are important

The theme of reincarnation is really prevalent in this part...

lord kumari a god

Monk: "Through many bodies, he has witnessed the world's growth."

We speak to him.

i am kumari

Kumari: "Until you get better, you should rest at Lhasa. It is safe here. You will discover what you must do in due time." Now that we've resurrected the entire species on the planet, we have to next "lead the growth" of the planet. Where do we start, though?

The next part that Kumari says, though, is a bit shocking.

no longer talk to animals

I'm guessing we lost that after we resurrected humanity...

To make up for the loss, Lord Kumari offers us a Bone Pin!

A monk comes by, announcing Master Meihou's arrival. Who is Master Meihou?

Kumari: "There is always a purpose to what occurs in life. Your presence will inevitably be tied to whatever will happen here."

Part 43: Humanity Awakened/Lhasa


Finally, after a year-long hiatus, I'm now in the next chapter!

chapter 3

"Resurrection of the Genius," hmmmm? But who is the genius?

There's Ark asleep...

ark sleeps

The woman nearby gasps at the awakened Ark...she asks about Ark's condition.

tell lord kumari?

Lord Kumari?

She tells us not to move yet as she gets the elder of this village...

We get out of bed, and go outside. We're at Lhasa Village now, near Tibet.

lhasa

The man outside says Lhasa is independent of any country, and is "leaderless." Then what about Lord Kumari?

We can climb the walls of this village.

But where's the save point?

There's a shop here. The new thing here is a Monk's Robe.

From what I've gathered, Lord Kumari is a healer.

At the bottom-left tunnel of the village cliff are the yak stables.

The cliff house of the village here are interconnected...

While exploring the village house, a maid tells us that Ark's been sleeping for three years straight! Oh my god...

three years!?

I walk around the village house and accidentally find the long chamber of Lord Kumari!

I wonder what ritual that circle is used for?

ritual circle

I finally find the save diary inside the local shrine!

The monks around the shrine tells us they've been in a deep sleep in "darkness", and the cause of that "came from something in the past..."

The idea of reincarnation is what these monks are implying.

That brings up an old question:

Why was the world sealed in the first place?

Part 42: The Climb To Resurrect Humanity (10)


This music gives me the chills.

A fallen Ark fades to black...

ark fallen

A flower blooms...

flower blooms

Now a yak eats the flower.

yak and flower

And a Kingbird swoops down on the yak...

kingbird

A baby Kingbird hatches from an egg...

kingbird and child

A Huball gets the Kingbird and their offspring...

Ark back again...

ark again

He falls...

Fade to black. The birth music plays again.

Aside: I accidentally reset my session twice during the resurrection cutscene by accident!! It still doesn't change the fact that I get chills listening to that music...

And that's it for this week!

Part 42: The Climb To Resurrect Humanity (9)


boss fight

The slenderman, at the dais of the summit, transforms into a Yeti!

The boss's first salvo is a block of sharp ice, and a blizzard!!!

I try my best efforts to break the ice, but the blizzard ends up charting the course for us...

The shadowy slenderman changes back, and the scene fades to black...

high cadet mage

What's a High Cadet Mage doing here?

We manage to get one hit in, before the High Cadet Mage floats across the summit super fast...

Airborne attacks are the only way the High Cadet Mage can be affected, I think?

I try using up some Rings, but this fight doesn't allow them!

I realize that the High Cadet Mage can only be hit by its own spells!

So this is going to be a tennis match...

And the Cadet Mage is down!

Now the slenderman faces us!

He transforms into a group of invulnerable bats!

After another hit, he changes back to a flurry of bats again!

Two more turns like this, and the small fireworks display begins!

dark morph

I'll still call him slenderman, though.

The same omnipotent voice speaks to us again...

"Ark. The day has come for the resurrection of humans. Humans are wonderful animals with the ability to create technology. But they have no idea of the vast power they wield."

you must lead

Now the final cutscene begins: The Resurrection of the Humans.

At the end of our trek is another hole to jump into...

big hole

Sensing that there's going to be a boss battle soon, I make the decision to go back down the mountain since I'm low on healing supplies.

We jump down the chasm!

another cave

And another!

We continue traversing the cave and take care of more Ice Crystals and Slimes along the way!

cave exit

This tunnel, I'm guessing, is the way to the summit, and where the boss for this area, is going to be...

There's still a bit of more mountain to climb...

way to summit

Here we go!
