The 7 damage was a result of a 24% attack buff, if you want accurate numbers. You're welcome.

So only 1.68 of the damage was from buff.  One or two points.

Does Leo get any penalties to his normal attacks for being back-row?

I've mentioned earlier that melee attacks have a damage penalty should you try to attack from the back row. But in return, enemy melee attacks do reduced damage to you.

No penalty on elemental/ranged attacks though, as Soapdish is demonstrating.

So the two points less Leo is doing is probably because he's backrow... I would say he still has the right to mock Gamage's damage.

Yes, there's also that. The Monk doesn't deal amazing damage, but what makes it good is that it's the only class capable of doing good damage unarmed. Everyone else deals shit damage unarmed.

This, really. Leo's class is the pure-healer, your class is a healer/dps hybrid.

I guess should ask then... what weapons are they each using?

Alright, assigning comma-


WHOOOA! We have limit skills ready! Limit skills don't consume HP or TP, but instead, they consume the limit bar, which charges up as a battle goes on. And once you use a limit skill...


Your turn is not used! Meaning you can pop it and still attack! It's very convenient, and can help turn the tide of a hard battle!


Remember this screen? Those assigned with limit skills must have a full limit bar before they can use them. This means that both Leo and Gamage needs a full limit bar before they can use Charge Tactic.

The ones in use this battle are:

Indomitable - Survive with 1 HP left if fatally wounded. Effect wears off once it kicks in or the battle ends.

Charge Tactic - Raise whole team's attack for 5 turns at the start of the turn.

Very convenient, and like the Guildmaster said, needed to survive the Labyrinth.

Also, as of note, Leo is more like a pure support class with healing passives. Gamage has active healing skills that are more potent than Leo's passives. Also, Leo is the only other person in the team that can equip heavy armor, so the Prince(ss) can substitute for a Hoplite. Although a much less effective Hoplite.

Now, assigning commands:

>Turn 7
>Gamage and Leo uses Charge Tactic, raising everyone's offense for 5 turns!
>Grash used Indomitable and gained a survival effect!
>Meregho Saeno used Godly Flash on Grash for 46 damage! (NICE CALL GAMAGE!)
>Kirikaze A used Kagenui for 37 damage!
>Kirikaze B used Kagenui... but missed!
>Leo attacks for 6 damage!
>Soapdish is confused... and attacks Meregho Saeno for 43 damage!
>Gamage heals Grash for 28 HP!
>Grash attacks for a critical 27 damage!
>Everyone heals 10 HP thanks to Royal Veil!


WE GOT HIM ON THE ROPES GUYS!

GOOD JOB FORUM. Also you have two skillpoints to use.


Also I just noticed this. You LITERALLY cast fist.

The conclusion of the fight against Meregho Saeno:
>Turn 8
>Kirikaze A attacks for 26 damage
>Meregho Saeno used Godly Flash on Grash for 45 damage (I'M DOING AN AWESOME JOB TANKING AND I DON'T EVEN HAVE PROVOKE YET)
>Kirikaze B attacks... but misses!
>Leo attacks for 5 damage
>Soapdish is confused... and hits Grash for 8 damage!
>Gamage used Kikouken for 12 damage!
>Grash attacks for 18 damage!


Seeing as he has so little HP left, I'm going straight into Turn 9. Kirikaze will most likely go first and deal the finishing blow.

>Turn 9
>Meregho Saeno used Thunder Feather!
>Grash takes 32 damage! Grash survives with 1 HP left thanks to Indomitable!
>Gamage takes 25 damage!
>Kirikaze A takes 29 damage!
>Kirikaze B attacks for 28 damage!


VICTORY!


"As you celebrate your victory, the client dashes off to examine the monster's nest! But judging from her gloomy expression, it seems she hasn't found what she came for. In any case, you have defeated the bird monster and must now set sail to report back to the ocean city."

: Ah, you've returned. Then you must have defeated that bird monster. Thanks to you, the marines can continue investigating that lighthouse without fear. If all goes well, the lighthouse will be on its way to serving its purpose soon! Well done, everyone! ...Oh by the way, this was found on one of the previous investigations. I'd like you to have it.

>Obtained Triple Script


And thus we're back in Armoroad. Now that we have discovered (and murdered) Meregho Saeno, let's look at its stats.


There it is. And as you can see, the Slashing Nail it dropped wasn't the only item it can drop. Items on that last slot are special items. Conditional Drops, as mentioned. In Meregho Saeno's case, it's the Eastern Nest, and is only available if it's killed while its "arms" are bound. I'll be getting this later.


In any case, it's been a while since we last entered the labyrinth. I think it's high time...


... We enter the second floor.


We step deeper into hell.


There isn't much in our immediate surroundings, so we procee-


wait what is that


... and now it's gone. Probably nothing. Let's go further.


We find a shortcut we can't do anything to yet.


"However... a sudden, sharp voice calls you from behind."

: Hold, explorers! There is much you should know to survive these depths. Heed my advice.


"He is blond and has a stern look that hints at a greater maturity than his youth would suggest."

: Is this your first time on the second floor?

"he asks, as if gauging your mettle. Though he is alone, his presence is somewhat fearsome. You wonder best how to respond..."


Since y'all are novice explorers, we're gonna say we are novice explorers.

"On hearing your honest answer that you are novice explorers, the man smiles and continues.

: Welcome, newcomers to Armoroad. By now you must have been to the Senatus, no?

"The man, who is clad in a red outfit of foreign design, speaks much more amicably than before."

: My orders from the Senatus are to give useful advice to novice explorers in this labyrinth.

"The man stops for a moment and shifts his gave toward the dense thicket of trees further in."

And upon doing so...

we see a horrible monstrousity.

An unimaginable horror that will haunt us for the entirety of this labyrinth

one that will confront us several times in our adventure and WILL end us

we see...:

The F.O.E.

>You've discovered a new monster!: Meregho Saeno
>Discovered a new item: Slashing Nail!

Each F.O.E. (which in the japanese version, stands for "Field On Enemy" rather than that Latin shit) is very powerful for the floor it is found on. Basically, we'll need to be able to go two floors deeper into the dungeon before we are able to try and take on the F.O.E.s on this floor.

Update 9:



There it is in all its horrifying glory.

: Those who come here swaggering in triumph from the 1st floor… usually die at that beast’s hand.

“You follow the man’s gaze to a powerful monster, the likes of which you’ve never seen.”

: If everyone was smart enough to back away from fights they clearly can’t win, there’d be no issue. But too many novice guilds perish from foolishly charging towards monsters beyond their abilities. ...I must caution you as well. Watch the enemy’s movements before making your own.

“The man gives a faintly sardonic smile and bow before walking deeper into the forest.”

: I look forward to meeting you again should our paths cross,

“he calls out as he walks away.”


Yes, fighting the F.O.E. at this point is just plain stupid, even if we are within the recommended level to fight it. We lack the gear to face it. So we will just…


Back up and don’t face it. Thankfully this one isn’t of the aggressive kind, so we don’t need to worry about it chasing us. Yet.


A closer look at it. You can see why it is portrayed as an orange kedama. And seeing it has reached the end of its patrol route…


We follow it.


Until this point, at least

… At this point, I realize that it’s day and we’re on the second floor. Let’s retreat for reasons I won’t explain yet.


And stay until evening.

… Actually, let’s take a trip to the Bistro. Whenever you reach the next floor, new information and quests become available. Let’s gather info first.


Holy shit do we have a lot of info to gather. 8 new dialogue options. Of course, I will go through all of them.

Scavenger Toma:
... Hm? Whaddaya want? Curious about this one, are ya? Or maybe this one? Huh? I tell ya what… I’m really thirsty. I could go for a nice drink about now.
Ale - 5 ental:
...Ahhhh! That hit the spot! This is called a Red Tail. It’s a rarity that’s highly sought after for its bright coloring. When you put the freeze on a Claw Shrimp, its tail turns all red. Don’t tell anyone else about this, okay? It’s our secret.
Wine - 5 ental:
Now that’s the stuff… This thing here’s a Gigapede’s jaw. On the market, they call it a Large Jaw. I’m a knife man, myself. When I’m looking for a weapon, I want one I can slash with. These are easy pickings for me. I just gotta cut down one of those Gigapedes at night, see? Don’t tell anyone else about this, okay? It’s our secret.

Monster scholar Scott:
Encountered any Largebills yet? Those monstrous birds with the green bodies and huge beaks… They’re so strong that you might have no idea how to take one, but here’s the secret: They sleep at night. If you don’t want to tangle with one, try doing your exploring at night. Though at night you gotta watch out for those nocturnal Gigapedes... Nature’s got you coming and going!

Filthy-booted man:
Ugh… They’re ruined! Hm? What, can’t you tell? I’m trying to get the mud off of these things. I should never have wandered into that muddy patch on B2F… I got chased all the way through it! It was terrible! You lose your balance in that mud, and you’ll be some awful monster’s snack. Dammit! I paid a fortune for this anklet at Napier’s, and now look at it!

Scarily intense guy:
...... ...Don’t push your luck in the forest. If a monster seems too strong for you, steer clear.

Gentle old man:
...This? It’s Deadly Durian sashimi. The Butterfly Bistro is famous for it. Deadly Durian is quite taste, but you need to watch yourself if they appear alongside Titan Arums. Titan Arums may look like vibrant flowers, but every rose has its thorns… plus a nasty smell. Between the two of them, the stench will be so terrible that you’ll have a nasty time of it. ...Excuse me, miss! Are my pickled Titan Arums ready yet?

Unlucky lady:
I’m drinking here because I’m waiting for my husband to return from the Labyrinth. Do you know of the Great Platypus? Its tail has a strong toxin, so you’d better watch out for it. Why do I know so much about it? B… Because my husband died from that poison! *sob* ...Ohohohohohohohoho!

Tomboy hammerist Nerona:
Hey, do you know about that clump of muchrooms growing on B2F? They’re really tasty! If you come across them, you should try one! Aura tells me not to, but I say if you’re going into the forest, you might as well have a tasty snack!

Astrologist Aura:
...Do you know about the patch of mushrooms growing on B2F? ...Don’t let your hunger tempt you into going near them… You’ll regret it, make no mistake… ...Nerona never thinks twice about approaching anything suspicious… Honestly, that girl…

Well that was a book and a half. Let’s see what requests are available.


Hm… Only one of them can be done right now, and that’s the top one. The lower one needs gathering skills, which is right up in Nale’s alley (I admittedly dumped all his points into Earth’s Bounty for faster leveling). So let’s accept the top one.

: Ah, accepting this quest, are you? It seems you are finally accustoming to the Labyrinth. The fishers in the city have asked for a Gigapede Leg. Gigapede Legs are used as fishing bait. Armoroad does do a lot of fishing, you know! Of course, you must be fighting Gigapedes to get Gigapede Legs. They only appear at night. The Labyrinth becomes a very dangeroud place at night. Keep your guardings high! I am counting on you once again, adventurers! Off you go, to victory!


Well, that was a lot of stuff to go through. Next update, we’ll be heading deeper into B2F. See y’all!

Talk dialogues - B2F:
: So hey, do you ever go sightseeing? The weather in Armoroad is warm all year round, so we get a lot of tourists here. It might be a good idea to take a break and have a walk around the town.

: Welcome… Oh, it’s only you. No window shopping, please. ...What’s with that look? Do you take me for a tedious woman who cares only about money? Not so… In truth, I… have an ill sister. I need money to pay for her treatment… ...Just kidding. Did I have you fooled? Time is money. If you’re bored, buy something.

: How are things going? I’ll always be sharing the latest unformation with you. Wait. I mean, “information.” Hey, listen. If you go above and beyond on requests, some clients will give you a bonus. Be thinking about what the client really wants instead of what is being asked for!

: Ah it’s you, 765 Pro. How’s the adventure going? Got the urge to turn tail and run yet? Make sure you’re fully stocked on medicine. If you rely only on your skills, you’re in for a shock. Most people think the number one cause of death in the Labyrinth is running low on supplies.

: Hello, members of 765 Pro. I’m glad to hear your sojourns into the Labyrinth are going well. But if you get stuck in there, give the mother ocean a shot to clear your heads. The ocean accepts all. She’ll share her joys, sorrows, hopes, and frustrations with all who sail her. ...Haha, but I suppose waxing poetical won’t do much to coax you in. All in good time.

: Ah, it’s you. I see you’ve reached the Labyrinth’s second basement. The First Stratum’s been thoroughly picked at this point. How unfortunate for you, mm? Better hurry and shape up so you can reach an unexplored Stratum. That’s where all the fun is!

Update 11:



WELCOME BACK

Last time, I said we were gonna go deeper into B2F. And we are gonna do that.


Now, I said we were gonna explore B2F at night for a good reason. That reason is the Large Bill mentioned by an NPC in the last update.


Large Bills fucking HURT. Last time I fought one when first entering B2F, only one was left standing with a sliver of HP left. I was lucky to still have an Ariadne Thread left.


Also, Scept, when grinding you, I admittedly dumped a lot of points into Ether Mastery. You have 5 points in it, 1 point in Volt Mastery, 1 point in Volt Star and 1 point in Dark Ether. I’m still gonna follow those orders though and put 1 point into Fire/Ice Mastery/Star and Horoscope, just expect that to be delayed. I’d assume you would want Ether Mastery maxed out later anyways.


“You try peering inside, but it’s too dark to make out whatever is glistening within. It probably wouldn’t be hard to reach if you tried, but is that the best idea…?”

… sounds like a bad idea. Let’s not.

“Anticipating danger and avoiding it preemptively is often a wise choice when in the Labyrinth. Caution seems to dictate that you should leave the area and return to your explorations.”

FYI had I said yes without a ninja in the party, I would have gotten ambushed, but not without taking pre-battle damage.


Unlocking this.


Somewhat long path.


Exploring side paths. Not a whole lot going on this update.


Ah, a Gigapede. Gigapedes, while they don’t HURT as much as Large Bills, are more defensive. It’s still a better alternative than those fucking birds.


They can also bind the party. I can finally talk about binds. There are three different kinds of binds in this game. Head, Arm and Leg binds. They all have a primary function in sealing skills linked to that body part, but they also have secondary effects. Leg Binds here completely lowers your evasion to 0 and makes it unable for you to run away.

Then a Great Lynx bit off Gamage’s head and we had to head back to stitch it back on. Fuck Bite Off.


Let’s head this way this time.


… which was a VERY short path. Welp.


A lotta F. O. E.s on this floor.


Aaaand safe.


“Noticing you, the figure comes near. You can see it is female, and what’s more, she is smiling.”


Huh. Odd looking girl.

: Hello. It is nice to meet you. You must be explorers from Armoroad.

“An incongruously cheerful voice comes from the girl, who ignores your bewilderment and continues.”

: You needn’t be frightened. My name is Olympia. I am active in helping explorers like you.

“The girl smiles again and hands you one of the backpacks she is holding.”

: This is a camping tent. It is practically a necessity here. You may have it if you like.

>Obtained Tent.

“The girl called Olympia points to the right fork of the road ahead before continuing.”


“Olympia looks again at the tent in your hands.”

: Many explorers use tents to rest during their travels. You should make use of that spot as well.

“Though she has said little, the girl turns to leave as if there is no more for her to say.”

: I will rest at the campground myself for a while. If you would like to talk more, come see me.

Gee, if only you had two ninjas in the guild sitting in town waiting for something to do

Axel-san, could you pass the sake? This sushi is really dry...

Re: Halolz explores Armoroad's Labyrinth, an EO3 run

Post by grashbar on Sun Jul 13, 2014 7:39 am

Oh my god guys, AN UPDATE:

TIME TO ACTUALLY UPDATE AND NOT BE A LAZY SHIT. With a single vote for investigating the campground, we go do just that.


Beyond this door is the campsite and Olympia. Let’s enter.


“It is spacious enough to camp; you can see traces of countless others who have been here. Near the trees further in, you see a lone girl resting against one of the pines.”


And here is the camping spot itself. Only on this spot can we camp. Camping will restore a set percentage of HP and TP, I believe around 20%, and pass time by 3 hours.

So brb camping.


This prompt appears whenever one goes camping. And this is true, as all camping grounds are absolute safe spots.


>3 ingame hours later and we’re at full health and TP.


Now let’s talk to Olympia.

“You slowly approach the girl who leans nonchalantly against a tree. As she notices you, she smiles and addresses the guild.”

: We meet again. How fare you in your travels?

“You try to remember if there was anything you wanted to ask the girl…”

”Who are you?”:
”Would anyone in the Labyrinth really be so free with advice and expect nothing in compensation…? You ask the girl called Olympia who she is and what reason she has to assist other explorers. Despite the suspicion evident in your voice, the girl is cheerful and upbeat as she answers.

: Don’t worry about that. I have my own reasons. After some time, if you grow strong as I think you will… I’ll tell you what they are.

“Olympia then closes her eyes and shakes her head quietly. It seems futile to inquire any further.”
”Have any advice?”:
”As the girl seems to be a veteran of the Labyrinth, you ask her for suggestions on how to proceed. The girl looks up and thinks to herself before answering slowly.”

: Hmmm… listen carefully. Some paths in this forest exist where you’d least expect them to. Even when you think you’ve come up against a wall or dead end, search carefully. If you can find these hidden passages, traveling from town and back will be much easier.

“The girl looks at you and smiles once again. It looks as though she expects you to ask another question.”
Ask her nothing:
”You determine that you have nothing to ask her right now and tell her so.”

: I see. I’ll be here for a while longer, then. If you have any other questions, you can find me here.

“You say your farewells to Olympia and resume your journey.”

Now that that is out of the way, let’s get moving again.


Only way left is north, so north we go.


Well, nothing much y- wait what is that


Another locked door, but this time it’s a star… I’m sure we’ll be able to open it soon.


Map says a shortcut is nearby, so let’s get to that shortcut to make exploring easier.


But then the game said no.


This mudpit is very much an annoyance. Stepping into them is the same as taking two steps, meaning an FOE can easily catch you and rek you backwards.

As an example, look at that FOE there.


One step later and it’s there instead.

Farmers have a skill that works against that. But we don’t have Nale in the party right now, so let’s try to avoid that guy instead.


Tutorial stuff for what I just explained. Already explained it so I’ll be skipping it.


I’m not confident enough to head down this way…


So let’s head down this way instead.


Heading down here will give us access to this shortcut. I’ll be unlocking that shortcut now.


Now let’s head this way!


Going this way takes us up here again. I’ll be mapping that out now.


There are other splits, but let’s head this way first.


Go as far down as possible, I guess.


… Oh, it’s this area. This area has an FOE.

Let’s not go this way.

And then a Gigapede bound the whole team. One Gigapede murder later and ripping off its leg, we’re on our way again.


Let’s head this way, this time.


Here’s one of the more interesting monsters in the Labyrinth, the Titan Arum. Weak to fire, as you may guess.


Yeah, no.


“She seems to be searching for something… She notices your presence and rushes over.”

: Ummm, sorry to bother you! Could I speak with you for just a few moments?

“The apparent astrologer’s blonde hair sways as a torrent of words streams from her mouth.”

: I’m Hypatia, an astrologer with the Murotsumi guild, and I’m in some real trouble… Agata, a young ninja in the guild, got carried away and went deep into the forest all by himself!

“The girl massages her temples with her slender fingertips and sighs deeply.”

:I can’t find him, and I’ve looked everywhere… I was hoping maybe you happened to see him… He’s an excitable little ball of energy. Have you seen any young ninja like that?


Well, we have obviously not seen the guy, so it’s obvious what the answer is.

: I see. Where in the world could Agata have gone…?

“The girl’s brow furrows, then raises as she addresses you again, her expression bright.”

: Hey! If you don’t mind, um, maybe you could do me a favor? If you happen to see Agata while you’re out here, could you tell me where you saw him!?

“Hypatia’s blonde hair again sways violently as the intensity of her request. You pause before answering, hesitant to add to your obligations in the Labyrinth.”


Well, I don’t see any reason to decline the girl, so let’s say yes. (The ninja’s at the third floor anyways)

“You graciously oblige the girl, who finally smiles and joyfully expresses her gratitude.

: In that case, I’ll head back to Armoroad. I’ll be waiting at the inn. I’m counting on you…!

“You see the girl off as she leaves before resuming your explorations.”

Alright, let’s continue exploring the plac- on second thought, looking at the ingame time, I think it’s best to head back to town for now.


Oh Ariadne Threads, what would I do without you. First off, let’s head to the Bistro, cause we have a quest to deliver.



: Ah, hello, my adventuring friends. Alive you are, and with the Gigapede Leg, yes? Yes, this is a Gigapede Leg, and no mistake! I will see it gets to the client. Thank you! How was the Labyrinth at night? Scary, yes? Many monsters only come out once darkness falls. Here is the reward as I was promising. I can count on you for more requests, yes?

>Obtained Pedant’s Book


And with that quest delivery, I gain a level.

Hooray.

One quick trip to the shop to get a new Ariadne Thread and a trip to the inn, we head back into the Labyrinth.


Also here’s Pedant’s Book. Quite the boring book.


Soapdish also got a new crossbow, giving her the highest attack on the current team.


Let’s see what’s over here…


A gathering point. Better mark it on the map!


Now let’s go this way!


I REMEMBER THIS PLACE LET’S NOT GO THIS WAY


And there you see the reason.


This is a much better position to enter that from. We just need to wait for the FOE to go past us.


Not yet…


Now!


It’s turned around…


So let’s head in here.


While we’re in here, let’s look around.


That didn’t take long.

“As you walk the darkened forest, you come to a hall in the corner of the Labyrinth. The thin branch cover allows you to look up and see a sky thick with stars. You are tempted to gaze at the starry heavens for a while, despite other pressing issues.”


WHAT A SPLENDID IDEA, LET’S DO IT

“You decide to stop and enjoy the beauty of the night sky for a brief while…
...The serenity of the heavenly vista soaks into you. You find its brilliance soothing…”

Everyone recovered 20 HP!

I SAID IT WAS A SPLENDID IDEA


Now for down here.


OKAY THIS IS BAD

“what’s so bad about this”

DEADLY DURIANS AND TITAN ARUMS HAVE A COMBO ATTACK. Some enemy encounter combinations allow enemies to use combos, which are more often than not a lot of trouble. In this case, Decay Breath, which hits the entire team and has a chance of causing Rotting, which I think is a stronger kind of poison, I dunno.

Anyways I took out the Durians first, denying them the combo, then murdered the Arum.


At this point I remembered something, and decided to backtrack to this point and go down the rest of that road. Why?


NOT TO GET ATTACKED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FOE ROAD, THAT’S FOR SURE

One close encounter later…


And here’s my reason. The stairs are here. But more importantly, I’m gonna look around for a shortcut.


Right here.


Which takes us here, in which we go…


This way


Which takes us to…


Here!


As you may tell, I’ve been hasty, because I wanted this shortcut unlocked so going through the labyrinth won’t be that big of a hassle.

Anyways, we’re low on health and TP, BACK TO TOWN.


Anyways, I feel that’s enough for this update. Next update, we finish up floor 2 and move into floor 3.

Re: Halolz explores Armoroad's Labyrinth, an EO3 run

おまけ:
Grinding a bit in EO3 for ental, rekking Meregho Saeno again and again. I should mention, beating a Sea Quest once lets you unlock its normal reward. Beating it on any of the missions thereafter will let the requester give you a personal reward. So here’s more bonus dialogue and extra rewards:

The Swallow's Cowry:
: I’m glad to see you back safely after defeating the bird monster. I have a message for you. ”My humble thanks to you all for your help. I am satisfied to have looked for the cowry there.” Don’t worry, the sea is vast and the forest is deep. I’m sure she’ll find what she seeks eventually. Oh, and take this with you. The client left it for you.

>Obtained Kirikaze Hood.

Stargazers:

Clients are Castor and Pollux

“You invited the brothers who are your clients into your party and traveled to Skandalia Lighthouse. As you reach the top of the ruined lighthouse, you find a giant bird monster glaring down at you! This must be why the brothers requested your protection. Now, bravely take your weapons in hand to challenge the nightmare beating its wings above you!”

Pollux is one of the smarter AI’s, focusing on healing and seeing as the AI’s have infinite amritas… yeah.

They also cheat by acting ONLY when it’s their turn to “attack”. Meaning if I get Panic Claw’d and confused, Pollux immediately gets on that case and refreshes me.

AI’s are fun.

>One Meregho Saeno murder later

“The clients’ strenuous efforts to back you up paid off as the bird monster crashes down in defeat! Now the clients will be able to observe the heavens from here with peace of mind. They thank you as you wave goodbye. You return to your ship to report back to the ocean city.”

: I’m glad to see you back safely after defeating the bird monster. I have a message for you. ”Thanks to you, we’re one step closer to becoming full-fledged astrologists with our research.” There you have it. It’s nice to see young people so driven by their goals. Haha, hopefully you are too. Oh, and this is also for you. The younger of the brothers left it as a token of his gratitude.

>Obtained Pollux’s Records

A princess’ trial:


“With the princess and her vassals in tow, your ship finally reaches the lighthouse of the bird monster. Atop the lighthouse, the bird monster spreads its wings and adopts a menacing stance! The client’s vassals quickly step before the princess, forming a defensive phalanx before her! In response, you draw your weapons as well! The princess’s valiant command echoes over the commotion and the battle ensues!”

The three guest party member quests works differently, in that you support the guest party members instead. That’s all I really need to say about that.

>One Meregho Saeno murder later

“Your party and the royal guards’ attacks punish the monster bird relentlessly and it finally falls! As you confirm that the sea has swallowed the beast, the princess rewards you all with her smile. To report your victory, you leave the lighthouse and set sail.”

: I’m glad you’re okay and that you’ve accomplished that request. The princess left you a message. ”Thanks to all of you, we were able to defeat the monster! However, my battle has only just begun!” Quite a valiant princess, eh? But I guess she’ll be leading a kingdom someday. She’ll need her energy. Oh, her vassals asked me to give this to you. They hoped you’d be able to make use of it.

>Obtained Albert’s Mace.


That’s it, really.
