Legend of Legaia Episodes 11-20

Time for it to Get REAL. – Legend of Legaia Ep. 20

Welcome back to the Let’s Play of Legend of Legaia here with Save File. Last time, we managed to fend off Songi, and revive the Genesis Tree at Mt. Letona, thus freeing Ratayu from the Mist. Our next goal is to take down the Mist Generator itself, but let’s see how everyone in Ratayu is doing first, shall we?

Ep. 20 P1.mp4_20150720_180057.838
Whoa, I’ve heard some harsh criticisms of marriage, but daaaaaaang.

Music: Town Free of Mist?

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180205.558
Mrrrrfffffghghbhlghblghblhghghg….

(At this point in time, I stopped recording in order to go grind for money for several hours.) I ended up buying all the new stuff though.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180223.870
I know when I’m upset/depressed, I sleep a lot. Maybe the party wants to do that given how hard it is to earn money, and how easy it is to spend it.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180227.142
Man: After everything that had happened, I thought there was no danger of her being taken as a Seru bride. But I was wrong. After all those years in the Mist, Saryu’s heart didn’t change. Soon, they’ll be coming to take my daughter away to be a Seru bride, just like they used to do. If this is what we have to go through now, I wish the Mist had never cleared.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180244.158
Eliza: I have been chosen by Saryu to be a Seru bride. Soon the soldiers will take me away. But, please, don’t worry about me. After all, I’m fortunate not to have died in the Mist… And all of my good friends have already gone to the castle too. And besides, if I don’t go to the castle, my parents will be hurt… or worse. I have heard that you are the heroes who drove out the Mist. That’s why I have a favor to ask you. I’m concerned about my parents. Please check up on them once in a while after I’m gone.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180310.798
Noa: Vahn! We can’t let Eliza go! Don’t let her be a Seru bride! I’ll… I’ll go in her place. I’ll be the Seru bride instead! I’m strong! I won’t die! So Vahn, let me go instead of Eliza! Please!
Vahn: …OK.
Noa: Thank you, Vahn! I knew you would understand! But don’t worry about me. Terra is with me, so we’ll get that Saryu.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180342.926

Well… I… I guess I’m already prepared, huh?

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180408.181
Noa: I’ll be all right! Don’t worry about me! Here, give me that dress!
Eliza: Oh, I am so fortunate!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180431.645
Well… this game took one hell of a left turn somewhere.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180435.006
Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180443.965
Looks like they’re taking Noa to the castle…

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180449.501
Hrmm, I wasn’t able to check that room out.

Music: The Genesis Tree

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180457.365
Well, that’s an ominous hallway…

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180500.269
WHAT… WHAT THE HELL

Music: Henchmen of the Mist

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180503.685
Seru Bride: Oh, the pain…

WHAT THE FUCK

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180515.077
Scientist 1: Hee hee! Here’s a vigorous looking girl. So full of life! Now Juggernaut will grow even fast! Hee hee hee!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180626.916
Scientist 2: When Saryu arrives, you will all join those young girls! Soon you won’t even be able to walk! Time to lament what remains of the world!

Music: Van Saryu

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180643.076
Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180711.604
Saryu: So consider yourselves lucky to be brides of Seru! Now be quiet! That’s an order!
Noa: Saryu, what you’ve done is unforgivable!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180721.612
OH LAWDY.

Saryu: The brides are not dead. Their vigorous bodies live. Now, connect them to the machine.

And Fade to Black…

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180730.284
Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180733.828
Ozma: Gala! We must hurry! Noa is in danger!
Meta: Noa should be where Saryu is, so let’s find Saryu!
Gala: Vahn, it looks like we’re next!

Music: Noa in Danger

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_180747.700
TO THE RESCUE!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_185559.695
Guard: So we will obey what Saryu has ordered.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_185618.583
There are some guard Seru in front of the doors, but I am not about to let that stop me from rescuing Noa!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_185621.623
OUTTA MY WAY!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_185649.503
AhahahahHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_185751.230
Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_185800.255
Noa: I never stopped believing! I knew I could count on my Vahn and Gala!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_185807.262
Saryu: You have done something I have not ordered. I don’t like you! You must die! Die! That’s an order! I will KILL YOU!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_185815.831
Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_185818.407

Music: Boss Battle

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_185823.686
Well, here’s our next boss; Van Saryu.  Luckily, he’s not actually that tough.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_185831.399
The battle plan is the usual. Spirit a bunch, then unleash hell. A lot of hell.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190046.557
Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190048.726
Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190051.230
Earthquake here is his most threatening move, and it does about 650 damage to anyone who hasn’t spirited, 200 to someone who has. It’s hard to predict when he’s going to use it, but it’s not too hard to stay on top of the healing.

However… you may have noticed my maniacal laughter upon the fact that I acquired a Kemaro Seru…

Let me show that off:

Kemaro
Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190115.981
I’LL TAKE IT.

A few castings of that, and Noa and Gala beating on Saryu’s ass, and it’s a pretty foregone conclusion.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190119.869

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190127.389
Gala: Blasted Sim-Seru! It deserves to be destroyed.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190133.717
Oh… and there it goes.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190142.581
Saryu: W-Where am I? What room is this? !!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190152.517
Saryu: This machine must never be turned on! Turn it off! You must turn it off!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190207.965
Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190218.757
Ahahahaha, the best part of this whole thing is Noa waving goodbye to Juggernaut.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190221.797

Music: Happy Town!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190229.804
Saryu: Yes, I am entirely responsible for the tragedies that occurred in this town. One day, a man named Dohati came to the castle with a most unusual Seru. Foolishly, I put the Seru on. It was an evil Seru they had created… a Sim-Seru! My mind was controlled by the Sim-Seru. It made me turn on the device sealed underground. For Dohati, I made Juggernaut and sacrificed many of the town’s young women to… The device’s records show that I made one Juggernaut before the Mist came. The Sim-Seru gave me only one command: to create an infinite number of that monster! Ironically, that resulted in your helping us to revive the Genesis Tree. Had it not been for you, I probably would have remained a foolish puppet of the Mist. I will do anything for you! Ah, yes… here! I give you this!

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190307.292
Saryu: That will enable you to get to Dohati’s castle. Please destroy the Mist’s henchmen… Dohati and Juggernaut.

Ep. 20 P2.mp4_20150720_190317.565
Saryu: That may be somehow related to Juggernaut.

Well… that.. that was certainly an adventure. The game takes a major dark twist right here. Dang.

NEXT TIME: Dohati’s Castle!

Mt. Letona – Legend of Legaia Ep. 19

Welcome back, dear readers! Last time on Save File plays Legend of Legaia, we royally screwed up Vidna, and realized how much Octam’s mayor sucks. On the other hand, at least he gave us our next objective: To revive the Genesis Tree on Mt. Letona, located to the East of Ratayu, all places we haven’t been yet. So let’s hop to it!

Ep. 19.mp4_20150720_173553.185
So since we haven’t been to Ratayu yet, we just have to hoof it.

Music: World Map

Ep. 19.mp4_20150720_173609.217
We’ve been to Octam and the Shadow Gate. This sign is actually pretty useful, since the Sebucus Islands kind of suck to navigate.

Ep. 19.mp4_20150720_173616.081
Ep. 19.mp4_20150720_173628.441
Here we are, this looks promising.

Octam’s Mayor Sucks – Legend of Legaia Ep. 18

Oh, herro. Welcome back to Legend of Legaia. Last time, we kicked the crap out of Xain, who then decided to freeze all of the magma underneath Octam. I’m sure that won’t have any long-lasting repercussions, RIGHT?  Let’s find out!

Music: Mist Infested Area

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_165811.521
Incense is a pretty cool item. It lowers your encounter rate. Battles take forever in this game, so sometimes it can be good to throw one of these down. On the other hand, it’s best to battle as much as possible to get experience, and (almost more importantly) gold.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_165819.889
Freeds are a new enemy Seru. They’re pretty beefy, but even more annoying than that…

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_165828.657
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_165831.225
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_165832.921
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_165834.609
This attack makes my game tank HARD. It slows down to like 2 fps. I have no idea why, but it murders my frame rate.

Vulture-Blade
I don’t know if I’ve shown this off or not yet, but here it is! Vulture Blade! Noa’s second Hyper Art.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_165917.281
So this is the exact same area we came through before, except instead of riding a rock through lava, we’re walking on top of frozen lava.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_165920.217
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_165922.321
You want to know a secret though?
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_165931.736
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_165939.233
I still manage to get totally lost somehow. It’s kind of sad.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172029.287
Hooray!

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172037.961
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172053.216
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172120.575
No, really. Where the heck am I going?

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172226.359
Judging from my screenshots, I actually FOUND the way out, assumed I was going the wrong way and then used a Door of Light instead.  Woo… go, me.

Music: Town Theme

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172237.439
Noa: You got that right! We taught that Xain a lesson!
Guard: Ah, I knew it! When the ground stopped shaking, all the townspeople knew you were successful, and started cheering! Please, go up and talk to them. They’ll be very happy. Oh, and the mayor is waiting for you. Please go see him if you have the time.
Noa: OK!

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172252.526
Gala: Hmm. In their last moments, the enemies froze the depths of the earth.
Guard: What?!
Gala: Yes. I only hope that nothing bad happens because of that. What could those henchmen of the Mist be thinking? It’s a mystery to me.
Guard: That’s right. Whatever will happen later on will happen. But now, thank you everyone!

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172313.783
Yeah, you only have to worry about freezing to deat– er, I mean… You have nothing at all to worry about!

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172324.478
Mayor: Ha ha ha! This is what you’d call a smile of satisfaction! I’m so happy, words can’t describe! Say, I have a favor to ask of you. Ha ha! Would you bring me some Spring Salts from Vidna? That’s a town known for its hot springs. I am prepared to reward you. I hope you can do this for me. Ha ha! I have instructed the guards to let you use the elevator. Please use it! Ha ha ha!

Well, that’s kind of nice, at least.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172402.542
We still need to heal up from Xain and all of the subsequent battles.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172417.174
Also, free healing item!

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172431.966
Don’t mind if I do!

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172436.118
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172601.301
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172605.135
The elevator spits us out in the above-ground, deserted version of Octam.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172615.389
At this point, I am super sick of wandering around the Sebucus Islands. I have a few Doors of Wind, I may as well put them to use.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172624.566
Ah, here we are. Good old Vidna. Something seems… off… though. Hehe, I guess you can’t really see it in stills though, huh?

Music: Vidna in the Mist

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172631.533
Noa: The Mist! Vidna is covered in the Mist! What’s going on?
Gala: Both of you, look! The windmills that were protecting Vidna from the Mist. They’ve stopped. Hmm, you don’t suppose it’s because the magma cooled? The effects could have spread this far. What irony!
Noa: Vahn…
Gala: Vahn, let’s see if anyone’s still alive.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172657.701
😦

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172730.100
As with most Mist-covered towns, we can get into battles here.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172907.116
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172909.652
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172911.524

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172926.436
Holy crispy craps, that dude WASN’T crazy after all!

Nobody really says anything of interest except for the old dude who used to hang out in the hot springs.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_172944.892
Old Man: Danpas, huh? Unfortunately, I have no idea where Danpas is.
Vahn: How about some treasure?
Old man: Wh-what? You’re after treasure at a time like this? It doesn’t make much sense, but it’s not for me to say, eh? All right, I’ll tell you. Go to the machine room, there’s some treasure there. Like the magical Spring Salts. The water’s cooled down, so you should be able to walk around inside.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_173005.251
Mrs. Danpas: My husband, Danpas, he built the shelter, but later on… he went outside to look for people who didn’t make it, and never came back! It’s just not fair!

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_173118.315
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_173206.371
Oh boy. I will tell you right now, this was NOT exciting.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_173358.315
Forget walking, man.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_173413.714
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_173430.761
Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_173432.746
Mayor: What are these for, you ask? Oh, ha ha ha! Why they’re for putting into bathwater! They make it smell just like a natural hot spring! Ha! Please take this in return, although I know it’s not much of a reward. Please use it.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_173442.050
Whoopee.

Ep. 18.mp4_20150720_173444.450
Vahn: The Mist has covered Vidna, you selfish ASS.
Mayor: It’s because you saved this town that such a terrible thing happened to Vidna… Oh, the irony! I feel like I am to blame for the misfortune of the people of Vidna. But there must be something we can do. If you destroy the source of the Mist, then they will be saved from the Mist! Say, you are looking for a Genesis Tree, correct? Well, I know where it is! It’s at Mt. Letona, which is next to Ratayu. But rumor has it that the ruler of Ratayu is quite a difficult fellow. But I’m sure you should be able to handle him! Ha ha ha!

Well… that was pretty much pointless.

NEXT TIME:  Ratayu, I guess?

The Fire Path – Legend of Legaia Ep. 17

Oh, hello there. Welcome to another episode of Save File Plays Legend of Legaia. Episode 17, in fact. Last time, the party made it to Octam, and met Hari, who infodumped them HARD, then promptly died.

He did, however, give us our next objective, which is to take out the henchmen of the Mist in the Fire Path.

So that’s what’s next, I guess!

Ep. 17.mp4_20150709_200309.433
We left off right in front of the entrance to the Fire Path. Let’s head right on in!

Music: The Fire Path

Ep. 17.mp4_20150709_200613.191
Ep. 17.mp4_20150709_200615.535
Oh boy… how exciting…

Ep. 17.mp4_20150709_200622.496
Now is also when we start seeing lots of pallet swaps. Unfortunately, there aren’t that many more original regular monster designs.

Ep. 17.mp4_20150709_200649.935
One interesting thing to note is that the Ra-Seru transform over time. Every time you awaken a new Genesis Tree, the Ra-Seru grow, or evolve, or whatever you want to call it.

Octam (the REAL Octam) – Legend of Legaia Ep. 16

Welcome back! Last time on Let’s Play Legend of Legaia, the party had just passed through the Shadow Gate and the subsequent network of caves to make it to the underground town of Octam. Let’s get right into it.

Music: Jeremi (re-used for underground Octam)

Ep. 16.mp4_20150608_205549.286

Ep. 16.mp4_20150608_205555.022
Gala: Ah, these must be the caverns under Octam.
Noa: Octam? That means Hari must be here! He’s the one who can tell me what my dreams mean! He must be here, right?
Vahn: Yes.
Noa: Hooray! Vahn, let’s go! Let’s go find Hari!

Ep. 16.mp4_20150608_205618.014
Woman:  It can’t be! But it is! Standing right before us… real human beings! This is wonderful! That must mean the Mist outside is gone! That’s why you’re here, right?
Vahn: …no.
Woman: I knew it. The Mist isn’t gone after all. That means we must go one living in fear here.

😦
