Drake Castle (Redux!) – Legend of Legaia Ep. 6

Welcome back to Let’s Play Legend of Legaia on Save File!

I hope you’re ready for a lot of WORDS! Because there is a lot of talky-talking in this episode and not a whole lot else.  But exposition is important!  So let’s get right to it.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222200.265
When last we left off, we had just defeated Caruban, and revived Mt. Rikuroa’s Genesis Tree. The party is looking a little worse for wear.  Lucky for me i don’t have to trek all the way back down the mountain.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222225.208
AWWW YEAH.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222227.048
Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222233.889
It’s always nice to have one or two Doors of Light on hand.  From here, the journey back to Drake Castle is very uneventful.  I don’t even get into a single battle.

Music: Drake Castle
Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222238.680
Noa: “Is it safe?  Will we be okay?”

Vahn: “Ha ha ha! Don’t worry!”

Noa: “All right. I won’t worry since you’re here, Vahn.”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222253.816
Vahn: “Yes.”

King Drake: “So what we heard was true! One look at the shining Seru on your arms and I understand how this miracle occurred. I am Drake III, king of this castle. You have my deepest gratitude.”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222305.641
King Drake: “What is it, young lady?”

Noa: “There’s some weird hair growing under your nose.”

Well, I never said Noa was the most tactful character.

King Drake: “What? Oh! Ha ha ha! Young lady, this is… this is called a mustache.”

Noa: “Whiskers? Whiskers! How weird.”

King Drake: “Oh? Actually, I am quite fond of my mustache. Ha ha ha! So be it. Now I wish to hear more about what happened. Young travelers, come over here.”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222333.160
King Drake: “So Vahn was heading to Biron Monastery in search of Mei’s Mother. My order to open the water gate must have caused you great hardship! I am sorry for that. But here, take this. It is the Water Key.”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222344.440
Vahn: Score.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222350.744
King Drake: I know that you both are on separate quests. But I ask you to remember the horrible Mist that covers the earth. And that those like you, chosen by the Ra-Seru, have a holy mission. I have not the authority to command you. You have saved Rim Elm and Drake Castle from the Mist. But the suffering will not truly end until the whole world is free of the Mist!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222408.848
Noa: “Are you talking about dinner?”

King Drake: “No, ha ha ha! That’s ‘supper.’ ‘Suffer’ means to be very sad.”

Noa: “Suffering is when sad things happen… No! I don’t want any more sad things to happen! I hate suffering! Vahn, that means we have to destroy the Mist! That will stop the suffering!”

King Drake: “Yes, I agree with Noa. Ha ha ha! I will detain you no further. Please continue on your journey. I will pray hard for a safe trip. Good luck!”

We’re now free to wander around Drake Castle as we please!
Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222434.504

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222437.496
We can still rest in the room to the right of the throne.  We still need to heal up from the fight with Caruban, so why not?

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222441.215
Knight: “I see. Then please feel free to rest here.”

Music: Noa’s Dream

Noa-Run
Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222532.879
And that’s that.  No mention of it or anything.  But it’s a thing that happened!  YOU ALL SAW IT.

Music: Drake Castle.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222636.247
Woman: “To be honest, I was very afraid. But now I am glad that I trusted in King Drake.”
Other Woman: “Before the Mist came here, I heard a rumor… that the Mist comes from devices called Mist Generators located all over the world.”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223618.986
There’s also this handy little item!

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223627.835
Oh yes, I will be very glad to have this in the future…

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222648.390
Woman: “Vahn, did you come here from Rim Elm?

Vahn: “Yes”

Woman: “I went there once when I was young. It’s such a beautiful village.”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222658.671
Child: “I’m glad I didn’t grow up without even knowing it.”
Child 2: “Vahn, Noa! Go downstairs and go outside the castle! There are a lot of stores there now.”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222711.127
Girl: “Uh-huh! You can see Mt. Rikuroa and the Genesis Tree from here!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222718.062
The staircases are still pretty ominous even without the Mist.  It’s just a very odd design choice.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222721.318
Woman: “I remember almost nothing about that period. It was like a long nightmare.”
Old Woman: “When I was a Seru monster, it was almost like being dead. But you liberated us from death. You gave us a fresh start on life.”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222738.102
Researcher: “Hmm. The name sounds familiar, but I can’t remember where I heard it.”
Researcher 2: “I am the Court Professor. I am like a scientist with a castle. It is my job to advise King Drake. I was the one who devised the plan to wear Seru and surrender to the Mist.”
Researcher 3: “There are indeed many legends of the Genesis Trees. That they are not of the human world, that they will flower when the world is in danger… Come to think of it, I have also heard that the Genesis Trees are cradles of Holy Seru.”
Researcher 4: “We did determine that the Genesis Tree at Mt. Rikuroa has the power to drive back the Mist. Unfortunately, however, there is no guarantee that the power will last forever. The only real solution is to destroy the source, the Mist Generator in the northeast.”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222805.702
Woman: “Did you read this diary while I was in the Mist?”

Vahn: Er, well, that’s… you see, uh… hmmm…

Woman: “H-How could you? I’m sorry. I guess I should have expected that. But please! Don’t tell anyone what you read in my diary!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222854.206
MORE STAIRS!

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222857.902
Vahn: “Yes.”

Woman: “Well then, you might like to know that Drake Kingdom has four Genesis Trees, they say. One in Rim Elm. Another at Mt. Rikuroa. The other two are in the forest north of the Biron Monastery.”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222908.421
Huh… I totally missed this one on my way through the Castle the first time.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222915.646
THIS one, however, was locked in a cage!  It’s mine now, suckers!

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222918.486
Hungry Dude #1: “I’m starving! Famished!!”
Hungry Dude #2: “I’m gonna make up for those years I didn’t eat anything!”
Hungry Dude #3: “Well, to be human means to be hungry, right?”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222928.069
Guy: “After the Mist came, perhaps he was killed by the Seru. He left us a keepsake, a book called ‘The Secrets of Biron.’ Do you wish to read it? It’s a very long book. Which chapter do you wish to read?”
Vahn: “A Robust Boy”
Guy: “The techniques herein bestow the mighty powers of heaven and earth. The secret of this technique is… Ah-ha, Vahn, so you already know the Charging Scorch. Now would you like to read another chapter?”
Vahn: “A Powerful Warrior-Monk.”
Guy: “There seem to be no warrior-monks here, so there should be no use in reading this. Ha ha ha!”

…FORESHADOWING MUCH?

Anyways… moving on…

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222952.485
WOO, GOIN’ DOWN STAIRS!

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_222957.629
Man: “After being possessed by them for over ten years, I just can’t bring myself to wear one.”

There’s another Healing Bloom in that Treasure Chest.

Woman: “By the King’s orders, I threw all the Seru in the castle into the river.”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223016.213
That treasure chest hidden behind the text box has a Swift Water.  I still haven’t started handing my Waters out yet.  I’ll get to it eventually though.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223031.805
Old Woman: “You guys got the Water Key from the King, right? Then use it to close the Water Gate outside.”
Old Man: “To the east, beyond the river by the castle, is Biron Monastery! Many warrior-monks are there!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223048.213
Noa: “So many… so many… people! Vahn, look! Look at all the people!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223055.196
Noa: “They all look so happy. Now I feel kind of happy too. I want to talk to them! I want to talk about happy things! Vahn? Do you think they’ll want to talk to me?”

Vahn: “Of course!”

Noa: “Yeah, you’re right. I know they would! I’ll see you later. I’m going!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223133.861
Dude: “Are you planning to go to Biron Monastery now? Biron Monastery might be enveloped in the Mist. Ra-Seru might not be enough. Before you go, buy weapons and armor to protect yourself and things to heal your bodies.”
Old Man: “To resume business upon recovering from the nightmare of the Mist… That family sure is tough.”
Woman: “To get to the Sebucus Islands in the north, head northeast and follow the river upstream.”
Man: “Umm… you should be able to stay in the back room of the castle for free. But if you want to spend your money, I won’t stop you.”
Guard: “You can use the Water Key King Drake gave you to stop the river’s flow. Cross the river and go east along the northern mountains. You’ll come to Biron Monastery.”
Other Guard: “Be careful! The world is full of weird Seru monsters!”
Other Woman: “The stores reopened, but all they have are weapons, armor… things for fighting and killing! I want fresh meat and vegetables. Hmmf!”
Last Guy: “Hey! Anyone know where my wallet went?”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223223.869
Arms Dealer: “Young lady, that’s a Fighting Robe. It doesn’t just look good. It’ll protect those pretty arms of yours.”
Noa: “Wow! That’s great! A ‘Fighting Robe’! How cool!”
Arms Dealer: “Ha ha ha! What a charming young lady! I’ll give you a good price!”
Noa: “Okay!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223238.012
Noa: “Money? What’s that? What’s money? Vahn, tell me what money is!”
Vahn: “I don’t know. Sorry.”

Yes, that is a choice.  And a very important one to make too!

Arms Dealer: “Hmmf. For the heroes who saved Drake Castle, you don’t know much, do you? Money is what you trade to buy things from stores like mine. The more monsters you beat, the more money you get. You know G’s, right? That’s money! Oh well, if you don’t know about money, you don’t know. Okay, I’ll tell you what. I’ll give you the Fighting Robe for free! As a present from me to you.”

Noa: “Wow! Thanks, Mister! You’re great!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223418.859
Arms Dealer: “Ah! How embarrassing. But next time, young lady, you have to pay with money, all right?”
Noa: “Uh-huh! Oh! I want to go over there! Let’s talk to those people!”
Arms Dealer: “What a great kid! You’d better take good care of that young lady, ha ha ha!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223435.931
Noa: “Vahn, I’m almost done talking. Hold on a minute. Yeah, uh-huh. Thank you, Mister Supply Dealer! I won’t forget! Okay, now I’m going to give you a test about supplies.”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223447.268
It’s a pretty logical leap, as we know that Waters permanently increase stats.  Leaf -> Flower -> Berry.

Noa: “Right! Wow, you’re so smart, Vahn! All right, next question!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223455.139
I really hope you would know this one by now.

Noa: “That’s right! Wow, Vahn! You know everything! All right then, last question!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223502.572
This one is just process of elimination.  We know it’s not Mei and Tetsu, we met them at Rim Elm.  And Lezam is the guy we met at Hunter’s Springs.  So that means it must be Wats.

Noa: “Wow, Vahn! How did you know that? You’re so incredible! Very good! You know everything, don’t you, Vahn? Here, take this.”

She hands over 10 Healing Shrooms.  I have no idea where she even got them.  But hey, free swag!

Noa: “Yeah! Oh! I want to go over there! Let’s talk to those people!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223521.891
Vahn: “It’s a place where you sleep.”
Noa: “A place where you sleep? Oh! That’s boring! Yeah! Thanks, Vahn! I had fun talking to everyone! I’m done! Now let’s go someplace you want to go, Vahn!”

The choice should be fairly obvious.  THERE IS NEW EQUIPMENT TO BE HAD!

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223538.659
First of all, we really did get that Fighting Robe for free, which is amazing.  I make sure to equip it ASAP.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223545.627
You can see here it would have cost us quite a pretty penny.  Half of our funds, to be exact.  Getting it for free is AWESOME, and will hopefully help out our meager war funds in the future.  Meanwhile, I make sure to pick up all of the newest equipment.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223555.971
A Nail Glove for Noa.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223600.259
Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223604.163
As well as a Guardian Clip and Electric Shoes.

All of the equipment for Vahn is the same stuff we bought back in Rim Elm, so I don’t bother. He already has everything.

And now, we can finally leave Drake Castle!  Our first stop is the Water Gate.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223643.154
Water-Gate1
Water-Gate2
Wow, that sure worked awfully fast.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223650.371
HA HA HAAAAA, YOU ARE MINE!

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223658.098
Frost Breath is a new Hyper Art move for Noa.  I now realize that I didn’t show off Vahn’s Tornado Flame yet either.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223703.531
These 2 should prove as nice test subjects.

Frost-Breath
Tornado-Flame
HA HA HAAAAAA.  PERFECT.  Unfortunately, Hyper Arts suck up a lot of AP, and can’t be linked like other, regular Arts.  So I probably won’t end up using them that much.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223716.842
Anyways, there’s a new, very very nice item available in Rim Elm, so this will be our last stop today so I can STOP FRIGGIN’ TYPING.

Music: Rim Elm

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223738.690
Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223742.890
The Point Card gains points when you shop.  It can then be used in battle and will cause damage equal to the amount of points you’ve gathered up on it. It can be EXTREMELY powerful, so I’ll probably be hanging onto it for a long time.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223749.946
Also, the items you see in blue here are only available with the Platinum Card we snagged in Drake Castle.  Pretty expensive stuff though, and not really worth the price, even if I COULD afford them.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223800.658
Nene: “You must be tired. Do you want to rest before you go?”

Nene still acts as a free heal point.  I still appreciate it.

Nene: “Good Morning! When you have time, tell me about your adventures, okay?”

Val: “Vahn, you don’t have to say anything. I’m just glad that you’ve returned home safely.”

Hmm… I guess we should probably visit Mei since we’re back in town, huh?
Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223819.762

Music: Mei’s Theme
Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223823.770

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223825.977
Noa: “I’m Noa! I’m a friend of Vahn’s!”
Mei: “Oh, I see. Noa. So you’re Vahn’s friend. I’m pleased to meet you. I’m Mei. I’m Vahn’s friend too.”

Noa: “If you’re Vahn’s friend, that makes you my friend too! Nice to meet you, Mei! Vahn, I like Mei! She’s nice!”

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223841.946
O_O

Oh… oh dear.  Maybe this wasn’t the best idea.

Anyways, one more thing to check out.
Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223852.962
NOT THE BEEEEES!

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223855.018OH GOD, THEY’RE BREAKING REALITY (or it’s a battle, whatever.)

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223857.737
Pssht, Bees, whatever.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223901.345
WHOA.

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223906.218
I…

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223910.570
HOLY!

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223914.969
…well then…

Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223923.986
Ep. 6.mp4_20150527_223930.921

Next time on Legend of Legaia:  NOT Bees!
