Wild Arms 3 Part 31: Clocktower: The Struggle

Everybody get excited because today is November 28, Sword Day. A sword and a dog had a fight. Sword won the fight. Sword was the name of the dog. What was the name of the dog? Think about it carefully…

Previously on Wild Arms 3: Virginia saw her uncle, Gallows saw his granny, and now we’re going to fight to save all of space and time.

So here we are, still in Baskar.

Every other NPC is now talking about Nidhogg and Yggdrasil. We are so close to the quest that makes that relevant!

Eh, I don’t wanna.

Our next destination is Infinitum…

Wild Arms 3 Part 30: You Can Always Go Home Again (and Again)

Giddyap, partner, because today is November 21. The catch phrase of the day is, ‘Beating after death.’ The Ark of Destiny hands out free calendars every year, but it only lists their religious holidays. It makes me want to memorize all of them, so I don’t use them myself.

Previously on Wild Arms 3: We learned of The Ark of Destiny’s history of dendrology, and that apparently happened right around where Virginia used to live.

So let’s check the ol’ homestead for clues.

Fun fact: there is in fact a hill in Boot Hill. Virginia’s family lives up on said hill. They are loaded.

As you may expect, every NPC in town has more personalized dialogue for Virginia.

The rest of the party just gets generic clues that will help them save the world.

Freaking love that Libera the ARMs-smith has to tell Virginia immediately that he couldn’t save the town from gobs back during her intro because he was visiting his girlfriend in Canada that day.

Huh! What a weird coincidence!

Can you only get to Boot Hill if you are on the verge of death? Apparently Roykman, our ever-faithful traveling merchant, was rescued in Boot Hill from a pack of dogs by some mysterious character that is Virginia’s Dad (oops spoilers).

“Today is November 21. The catch phrase of the day is, ‘Beating after death.’ The Ark of Destiny hands out free calendars every year, but it only lists their religious holidays. It makes me want to memorize all of them, so I don’t use them myself.”

I feel like I heard this somewhere before.

Let’s do some reading…

Wild Arms 3 Part 23: Luck of the Villainous

It looks like today is October 3, Nutrition Day. I’m going to eat a balanced diet of chicken breasts, chicken wings, and chicken drumsticks. It’s important to eat from all the different food groups, right?

Previously on Wild Arms 3: We met what may or may not be an elf, and she helped us get our Pikmin on.

But now we are done with optional content and back on the trail of advancing the plot.


264600.png

Clive’s family gave us two potential leads. The gem mine is closer physically, but Fortune Gear is a potential Guardian shrine, and those dungeons have consistently reaped the best rewards across this quest.

Word.


264800.png

The last Guardian Shrine felt empty, but, like two shrines back, this one likely has an intruder.


264900.png

Gonna have to exhume another god corpse…


265000.png

Dungeon/plot synergy! This room/platform serves no other purpose than to remind you that Clive got married here, and Fortune Gear is available for parties and bar mitzvahs. So let’s get this party started!

Wild Arms 3 Part 20: Rest Virginia

Come on guys, let’s play on September 12, Faker Day. The marketplace of Little Twister is full of fake shops like fake moneychangers and fake pharmacies. A faker is someone who goes into these shops without prior knowledge of fake items, otherwise known as bait. Since fakers had higher survival rates than those who knew how to identify fake stuff, the Little Twister Tourist Committee named the day Faker Day.

Previously on Wild Arms 3: Everybody died.

See? So I guess we’ll have a little writeup of what happened in Wild Arms 3, and how…


227900.png

Oh, maybe we can squeeze an update out of Melody standing around and rubbing it in.


228000.png

“These guys suck. Do I need to write that down for next time?”


228100.png

Come to think of it, like, literally no one is resisting the Prophets right now. Nobody knows they exist! If our team is dead, then what is the battle data good for? Gotta fight the united army of Jolly Roger or something?

What’s this!? A cat from behind!?!
