Hur hur.

Anyway, crass inuendo aside, I don't recall there being more than four or five conversations there before you get 'MC and Medea enjoy a stolen moment together' or something like that ad infinitum.

There's assloads of other conversations she has with you, as you go along the story, there will be chats related to what the group just did in the plot and such. I went back there a lot like the completionist douche I am.

I wish the heroes would just punch some of the utter twats you meet in this game. I wanted to hit that Charmles kid so much. I spend all that time trying to get that jewel, and then he just buys one when we get back.

Dominico was a total asshole too, not to mention his accent was ludicrous.



Seriously, where is that accent from? "YOW DEESGUST MEY!"

She always tells me to remember to take her back to the spring at the end of those dreams.

You should take her back then. You wouldn't want to be stuck as a furry would you?

I guess I simply don't remember it that well. It's been a few years since I last played it, and I've already said there are chunks of the game that I don't recall.

There's just assloads of extra small crap Level 5 just left for you to find for yourself(unless you use the guide book like I did). There's that neat optional quest with some portal in Argonia too, that was cool...sorta. And later on monsters attack Baccarat.

I played it without a guide, (as I always try to do first time through an RPG) so I missed assloads. I even got the true ending myself, which I was dead chuffed about until I realised that everyone had found it too courtesy of the internet.

Come to think of it, I'm not sure I ever did a second playthrough, which is most unlike me. scratch

But doesn't the game tell you where to go to start the "true ending" quest after the credits? I recall it showing the Dragovian Path's entrance, hinting you where to go.

It does.

Though it doesn't show where on the map it's located.

I think that's because the game expected you to know what area it's talking about at that point. You'd probably end up flying over and noticing it a lot of times as you played the last parts of the game. Hell, maybe even visited it, who wouldn't?

The point is, the game hints at something to do post-game ending. =P

Cool, now I can post an appropriate trope.

I'm starting to lose interest now. I kind of wish Dhoulmagus had just been the villain instead of some evil god thing.

Don't worry, he's pretty much just there as the final boss and that's it. No additional plot points with him involved other than the end itself. The rest of the game after finishing it will just be finding out about the hero's past, fighting the last form of Rhapthorne again after doing that and then watching the true ending.

I won Rank A of that monster thing, just. Got a decent spear out of it, which was nice, since all the other prizes were pretty weak.

I'm doing dodgy Dave's orders at the moment too, so I'm just wandering around the Dragon Graveyard trying to kill Metal King Slimes while the alchemy pot boils.
