No posts for Terranigma this week. I'm still trying to update my blogsite, along with other things to do atm.

Part 102: Metal Gear Dragoon (2) (TW: skeletons)


After saving and talking to Fyda at the inn, I realize that I do have something to break that cracked wall...

After getting kicked out of the castle several times, we make it!

opening

More guards are patrolling the statue-filled hallway now...

As we pass through that hall, we cross a corner, and get spotted by another guard!

After many failed tries in crossing through the hallway with the two guards, we manage to find our way to a safe room leading to another set of stairs...

stairway

...leading to a dungeon!

I hope there are no guards patrolling...

...but there is someone there!

elle?

Princess Elle? Or is it the other Elle?

Elle: "Ark...Help...Can't...Move..." I'm sensing something suspicious here.

Before going to her, I have Ark scout the dungeon...knowing how huge this place is, I'm guessing there's going to be a boss fight soon...

I notice another Magirock in the west corridor and pick it up.

magirock get

We go to Elle...

And that's it for this week!

Part 102: Metal Gear Dragoon (1)


I only have time for a short session, so let's dive in!

I play the whole cutscene with Perel near the inn again before going in the castle...

I sadly get caught by a guard from the upstairs deck on the east wing three times...

Change of tactics: I go to the center room, barely avoiding one of the guards' flashlight!

After a few tries, we sneak past the second guard, only to almost fall down in the gap below...

abyss

I have Ark sprint jump past the gap...

...only to run into another guard! This place is really well-patrolled!

The turning guards are tricky to get past...

After a few tries, we finally make it past the turning guards!

long hall

We cross the long hall, into a dead end...

cracked wall

Or is it?

Seeing the cracks in the center wall, I have Ark throw the scattered jars at it...no good. I can't use Ark's staff here either.

With no way forward, I return to Yunkou.

Part 101: Entering Dragoon Castle (2)


However, there's another guard patrolling the inside of Dragoon Castle...it's another stealth mission.

patrolling

We try to enter the west part of the castle, but a guard almost spots us!

We turn back and climb a set of stairs, avoiding the guard down below. We enter the western room...

blank room

So basically we're helping a few people in this quest: Fyda, who thinks Princess Elle is in Dragoon Castle, and Will and Perel, who are trying to get parts for the plane.

We leave the spare room, and head east.

stage before

In the middle of the hall, in place of four creepy portraits, is a stage...I'm guessing this is where the Castle holds performances for tourists...

As we make our way to the east wing, we spot another guard!

We run back down the nearby staircase, and see the patrolling routes of the guard upstairs...

Not seeing him anymore, I watch the route of the guard at the main hall...

This feels a bit tense...

Unfortunately, the guard's routes are random for me to predict...

We go outside for a bit of relief and head back inside.

I manage to sneak past the guard at the main hall...

Now comes the hard part...

trapped

I'm trapped.

I decide to leave, but we get spotted by the first guard!

Getting a bit nervous because of all of that sneaking, I save back at Yunkou and stop the session for tonight.

Here we go, the real Castle adventure begins!

whew!

Perel's in awe at the palace, but he knows there's a job to do.

ready bro

Whenever you are!

Perel: "While I attract some attention, you slip inside the Castle. Ready? Let's go!"

He skateboards up the stairs to the man guarding the entrance.

perel skating

The man's spinning in circles...

Perel skates into the castle!

The man goes after Perel! Now's our chance!

Part 100: Dragoon Castle Rebuffed/Fyda's Nightmare (6)


Outside, we see a familiar face!

perel yay

I wonder how he crossed the ocean to get here?

i was looking for you

Perel: "Anita told me you helped Will. You even went to Yunkou looking for airplane parts for Will."

Now he joins our party, yes!

He asks us if we found anything yet. I say yes. Ark explains the situation so far to Perel, about how Wong is buying up stuff and selling them in the black market. Perel knows about that too.

now i know something's up

Perel calls Ark "bro" and decides to take on Dragoon Castle!

He skates away...

Part 100: Dragoon Castle Rebuffed/Fyda's Nightmare (5)


Fyda: "...You know Ark."

i killed princess parents

Fyda: "I am the cause of all her miseries. I can never escape this curse of guilt...You must think me vicious..."

This is a hard decision to make. How would Ark answer? I decide to say "that's not true."

that's not true

Ark: "You protected Elle just like you promised!"
Fyda: "...That does not absolve me of my crimes."
Ark: "So what!? So you're going to quit protecting Elle? [...] If you don't protect Elle, who will?"

We're back at Yunkou...

ark princess

Fyda: "Dragoon Castle...Must...Hurry..."

So she's telling us we should enter Dragoon Castle next...

Part 100: Dragoon Castle Rebuffed/Fyda's Nightmare (4)


The Elder and his wife are holding hands...

at elder's room

I noticed the door on the right from the previous room was open. Was that where we enter?

Fyda: "I...I came to..."

Elle's mother understands and accepts her fate.

Elle's mother: "Do not look so stricken. As guardians of the treasure we steeled ourselves to this fate. We cannot reveal the treasure's location even for our lives."

What treasure are they talking about?

Elle's father, the Elder, tells Fyda to do it.

one last request

Elder: "Our daughter Elle. We beg that you protect her." :(

Fyda turns away...

i'm sorry

sorry

She turns back to them.

Fyda: "But I promise I will always protect your daughter even with my life."

She steps forward...

ark appears

Ark appears!

Part 100: Dragoon Castle Rebuffed/Fyda's Nightmare (3) (TW: implied genocide)


We're now inside Fyda's dream, at Storkolm, where the late King and a soldier is sitting.

fyda appears

Fyda says there's no treasure in the village. The King still thinks there is one.

find her and take her

Oh my god...

i am merciful

King: "Let us give a chance to the village head. Inquire the whereabouts of the treasure. If they refuse to comply..."

kill them

He also orders the deaths of everyone in the village...

Fyda is in shock!

Fyda: "They are nothing but innocent villagers!"

The King now approaches Fyda...

orphan

Wait a minute, she was raised by the King?

King: "Now! Go! Total surrender...or death!"

Oh my god...

He walks away, and Fyda goes into the Elder's room...
