    Rue's route, Part IV: Princess and Consequences

    [​IMG]

    Let's explore Carona a little bit.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I don't think I can afford this yet...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Selling monsters doesn't hinder our transformational abilities.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :what:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oh, I see...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :incline:

    To celebrate this purchase we'll visit nearest tavern.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ok, it's time to face this Rod. To the fields!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Who are you...?
    [​IMG] Sure you wanna know...? Alright, I'll tell ya.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'm Rod the Blade Star!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] So... you're a swordsman that makes weapons?
    [​IMG] Yeah. The best way to test my artwork is for me to use it. Nothing beats using my artwork against a great rival in combat. Gets my heart warm, know what I'm sayin'?
    [​IMG] ...
    [​IMG] How about it, boy? You care to fight me? Your weapon caught my eye. My weapon versus your weapon. My heart versus yours. Let's do it. That thing on your back isn't ornamental, is it?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Alright. Before we fight tell me your name.
    [​IMG] Rue.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Ok, Rue, let's see if you got some heart!
    [​IMG] Oh, I forgot, I need you to pay up before we fight: 100G.
    [​IMG] What!? Why do I have to pay you?
    [​IMG] That's my rule. Hey, if you win, I'll pay you 1000G. The money just makes it a little more interesting. What matters is heart! So, you still up for it?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It's called Silver Breeze.

    [​IMG]

    Rod is tough.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    But our tactics are superior :obviously:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sure I will.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, it didn't go too well this time and we suffer a defeat.

    I think the time is right for us to visit our basement dwelling friend.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You wanted to see me, Doctor?
    [​IMG] I finished skimming through the stuff we brought back from the atelier.
    [​IMG] Oh. Did you find anything about the [relic]?
    [​IMG] Yes. The magician who lived at that atelier was also looking for the [relic]. It's written right here: 'My endless pursuit of the Aeon [relic] continues.' On the next page, it says: 'The Aeon [relic] is sealed by one of the highest orders of magic. Even my powers are incapable of overcoming it.'
    [​IMG] The [relic] is sealed?
    [​IMG] The Aeon who created the [relic] probably feared someone would steal it. So he must've placed a powerful seal to protect it.
    [​IMG] It's probably very difficult to break it.
    [​IMG] Yes, I'm afraid so. After all, the [relic] was sealed by a powerful Aeon. Like it says in his diary, even this magician couldn't break the seal. I don't think we'll be able to do anything, either, even if we find it.
    [​IMG] No...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'm still not finished. You see, the magician wasn't the only one looking for the [relic]. Listen to this: 'I cannot break the seal. Then I shall seek the powers of the past. Long ago, Grand Magician Elroy and his apprentices also sought after the power of the [relic]. I must see his research on the [relic]. I must go to Elroy's atelier in the underground ruins. I have made a key that will grant me access to his atelier. The power to uncover Elroy's secrets is in my hands. But I'm too late... I have fallen victim to a deadly disease. I cannot even walk anymore...'
    [​IMG] ...He couldn't go.
    [​IMG] He must've been carrying a terrible disease. He worked so hard and even made a key, but...he was too late. It's very sad... So how about it, Rue? Let's uncover the mystery of the [relic] together. I don't know how far we can go, but I think it's something worth trying. That's the key made by the magician. With it, we should be able to enter the ruins and find Elroy's atelier. If we can find his atelier, I think we can find out more about the [relic].
    [​IMG] Where are these underground ruins?
    [​IMG] They are quite far. It takes at least half a day to get there by foot.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Doctor, are you alright? I think you should take it easy until your leg heals.
    [​IMG] Ahh, it's nothing. A twisted ankle isn't gonna stop me from chasing my dream.
    [​IMG] You need to rest, Doctor. There's no way you can take a long trip with that leg. I'm sure the missus and Elena will worry.
    [​IMG] But...
    [​IMG] Please, leave it to me. I'll go to the underground ruins by myself.
    [​IMG] I can't let you do that! Those ruins are filled with monsters. It's too dangerous to go there by yourself. Let's go together after my leg heals.
    [​IMG] I'll be fine. Besides, if it's dangerous, I should definitely go alone.
    [​IMG] I really don't think that's a good idea.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It doesn't matter what lies ahead, I have to keep moving.
    [​IMG] ...... Alright... just promise me one thing. Don't overexert yourself. If it gets tough, just come back, ok?
    [​IMG] Ok.
    [​IMG] Good luck, Rue.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] (...She still thinks I'm a Pollywog.)
    [​IMG] Where are you going?
    [​IMG] I'm going to the underground ruins to try to find more clues on the [relic].
    [​IMG] Really? Darn...
    [​IMG] What's wrong?
    [​IMG] Well...there's a big lake right by this town. It's really pretty, so if you weren't busy, I wanted to take you there. Oh well... Maybe next time. Have fun at the ruins, Polly.
    [​IMG] Elena, I told you before, I'm not-
    [​IMG] Bye, Polly.

    Before heading to Underground Ruins, it's probably a good idea to do some resting.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Shut up and take my goldz.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    You do not dream often, but tonight the visions are vivid, indeed. Long have you walked, but now you find yourself back amid the trees of Carona Forest...

    [​IMG]

    There we unleash the fury of the emprah upon the various xeno species.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Hey, I remember this stump...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Can't do anything about it at the moment. Back to genocide then...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Alright, enough of this, we've got a job to do.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There was a trace of bitterness in the Rue's voice as he spoke.

    [​IMG] As always, the question. And the wrong question, as always. I have never known you, Royal One. No more than you have known yourself.

    He was silent for a moment.

    [​IMG] ...Oh yeah, I remember... You're Mint, right?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It's 'Princess' Mint. Remember, 'Princess.' Got it, Rue?
    [​IMG] How did you know my name?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I know why you're here, too. This entrance leads to another atelier. That's where you're heading, am I right?
    [​IMG] Yeah, you're right.
    [​IMG] See. You can't hide anything from me. So what are you gonna do? Don't tell me you're planning to go in by yourself. It's probably packed with monsters. No offense, but I don't think you'd last a minute in there.
    [​IMG] ...What are you trying to tell me?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] If we split up and both look for the atelier, it would make things a lot easier, don't you think?

    [​IMG]

    VOTING TIEEEEEM!!

    Sorry spekkio, but looks like our local separatist movement has prevailed. So be it :salute:

    As a bonus, here is some cutesy animation, that would've been shown, should we choose the other route:

    Rue's route, Part V: Forget-Mint-not

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Remember, last time, you threatened to take everything at the atelier?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Fine. I was only trying to help you. Well, I guess I'll look for it on my own. And if I see you crying for help, I'm not gonna help you.
    [​IMG] ...Oh, and another thing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I haven't mentioned it, but Rue can only have four different monsters in his transform list. When you pick up new monster coin it replaces the least recently added one.

    [​IMG]

    We keep running around...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Hey, I've been here already :?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    At first I was like:

    [​IMG]

    But the I was like:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Flying casually over deadly green substance...

    [​IMG]

    Dodging spiders...

    [​IMG]

    Collecting thingies...
    Man, pollywogs are so overpowered.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :hmmm:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I don't have enough mana to melt all those ice blocks, so I go all violent on nearby spiders to restore mana, cast spells to increase maximum mana, go back to spiders again... You get the idea.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here you need to jump on every platform from right to left. Not that easy, by the way.

    Look who's here.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I figured some monster had you for dinner because you took so long.
    [​IMG] I'm gettin' a bad feeling about this...

    [​IMG]

    oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :salute:

    [​IMG]

    Err, let's try again.

    [​IMG]

    Much better. Let's go back and check how is Mint.

    Rue's route, Part VI: Modron Cube?

    [​IMG]

    Here the goal is to jump from one blinking platform to another. But first...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :yeah:

    Back to jumping...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :o

    [​IMG]

    All those magen davids... I wonder if there are some jews nearby.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Naturally, a wild jew appears.

    [​IMG]

    We beat the hell out of it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Although it was close, only 4 HP left. Goddamn jews.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What are you doing here?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Just shut up and listen.
    [​IMG] Yeah, and maybe we'll let you live.
    [​IMG] I'm not gonna repeat myself, so listen carefully. Hand over the artifacts you found in there. I need them to find the [relic].
    [​IMG] What!? You're after the [relic], too?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] And I'm Belle, the greatest treasure hunter in the world. Ok, enough chitchat. Hand them over.
    [​IMG] No. I'm looking for the [relic], too. There's no way I'm gonna hand over the artifacts.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Yes, Milady?
    [​IMG] Give him a good beating. Make it quick.
    [​IMG] Yes, Milady!
    [​IMG] Wait, what? Belle? Duke? Whatever...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Rue... Why do you ask?
    [​IMG] I'll remember it for you. 'Cuz you won't remember your name after I bust you up with my act.
    [​IMG] Act...?
    [​IMG] Rue, you like stories? I love stories. Can't get enough of them. Especially the ones with hotshot heroes. Man, this really get me fired up, y'know. They always get me praying to be like them. Last night, I read this book called 'Shadow Legends.' The main character was this rad ninja who used this awesome move. Check this out.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] !? H-How!?
    [​IMG] Duke, hurry up and finish him! You don't stand a chance against his act. With it, he can master any move.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Let the bloodshed commence!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'm gonna show you my best act yet! You can count on it!
    [​IMG] Come on! We're outta here!
    [​IMG] Yes, Milady!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Gotta speak with Klaus.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Sup, Drog♪
    [​IMG] My dad's waiting for you in his room♪

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Doctor... I'm sorry.
    [​IMG] What's wrong? Did something happen at the ruins?
    [​IMG] Um...

    *screen fades to black*

    [​IMG] So this Belle and Duke took the tiara from you.
    [​IMG] I'm sorry. I was careless.
    [​IMG] Ahh, don't worry about it. I'm sure we can get it back somehow. For now, let's do research on this cube. Looks like this will keep us busy for a while. You know, you came back at just the right time. I just found something very important.
    [​IMG] What is it?
    [​IMG] Well, you know those materials we brought back from the atelier? I looked through them again while you were gone, and you're not gonna believe what I found. The location of the [relic]! I know where it is!
    [​IMG] Really!?
    [​IMG] Yes, there is no doubt. In fact, it's located very close to Carona. The [relic] is at the lake ruins.
    [​IMG] (Oh yeah, Elena told me about a lake...)
    [​IMG] There's a lake not too far from here with old ruins floating in the middle. Until now, nobody had a clue who built them. Who would've thought that they were built by Aeons.
    [​IMG] So... that's where the [relic] is sealed?
    [​IMG] Yes. Elroy was trying to break the seal at the lake ruins. This cube was made for that very purpose.
    [​IMG] Then we can use it to break the seal at the lake ruins and get the [relic]!
    [​IMG] Theoretically, yes... Unfortunately, it's not that easy. We're definitely supposed to use the cube. The only question is, 'fucking cubes, how do they work?' Look at this thing. It's just a cubic block. There's no way to open it or do anything. Without some kind of instructions, I have absolutely no idea how to use it.
    [​IMG] :retarded:
    [​IMG] But we're so close to getting the [relic]... Doctor, isn't there any way we can find out how to use the cube?
    [​IMG] Hmm... We can try asking her, but... Actually, I'd rather not deal with her.
    [​IMG] Who is this person?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] She lives in an atelier beyond the forest. I honestly don't know how to describe her. She's just weird, I guess. So I'd rather try to stay away from her, if possible.
    [​IMG] I don't think we have any choice.
    [​IMG] You're right, but... You don't know her. She's so...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] But... unless we find out how to use the cube, we'll never be able to get the [relic]. Doctor, please give me the cube. I'll go ask Fancy Mel. I'm sure we'll be able to find out more about it.
    [​IMG] ...Alright. I'm making you so much. Thank you, Rue. I'll give you directions to Mel's atelier and also directions to the lake ruins.
    [​IMG] I'm counting on you.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'm going to Fancy Mel's atelier. Your father told me that it's in a really strange place. Do you know anything about it?
    [​IMG] Fancy Mel...? OH! The crazy witch, right!? I know her place.
    [​IMG] Crazy witch...?
    [​IMG] It's a very fun place. I'm sure you'll like it, Polly.
    [​IMG] ...What do you mean by 'fun'?

    [​IMG]

    We visit local merchants before venturing forth.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Uhm... Ok.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Where do you think you're going?
    [​IMG] Why do you care?
    [​IMG] Gosh! You're so rude. Oh yeah, there's something I wanna ask you. I heard you're not human. Is that true?
    [​IMG] !? Who told you that?
    [​IMG] You know... That girl.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You guys know each other? Since when?
    [​IMG] Oh...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] (...)
    [​IMG] Hey, Elena, is he really a Pollywog?
    [​IMG] Yes. I saw him turn into a Polly with my own eyes.
    [​IMG] This is getting ridiculous.
    [​IMG] So what is it, Rue? Are you a goofball Pollywog or not? Come on, you can tell me.
    [​IMG] It's none of your business.
    [​IMG] Hey! You're my rival, so it is my business!
    [​IMG] I don't have time for this. I have to get going.
    [​IMG] Fine. If you wanna run, go ahead.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You can count on it. Come on, Elena!
    [​IMG] Ok.

    I find it fun how all these little details change between the routes. Here, Elena is freely discussing Rue's identity issues with Mint, even though in Mint's route she was reluctant to talk about it.

    In other words,

    :yeah:

    Oh, and

    :rpgcodex:

    Do go on plz. :salute: I'm following the shit out of this.

    Damn. Rue's path is indeed not as fun as Mint's.

    Also: MOAR!

    Rue's route, Part VII: Dem dorfs, Mel

    Music to set the mood[/majestic47]

    So, where were we? As far as I remember we were heading towards Mel's atelier...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    My eyes are bleeding right now.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Giant balls, you say...
    :hmmm:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here we put our platforming skills to use.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After some heavy platforming another minigame awaits us.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] If you hit Fungie while he's underground, Fungie hits you back. Game over when time's up. 500 is high score. You get high score, I give you potato. Here we go.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :decline:
    Eh, let's not replay this for now.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Pick up balls, and you get points. Pick up balls with same color, and you get bonus points. Pick up black ball, and you lose points.
    [​IMG] :salute:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :hmmm:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Scare Cockadoo with trumpet sound. Step on round thing to sound trumpet. Scare Cockadoo, and you get points. Scare many at once, and you get bonus points.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    All minigames are finished, so it's time to visit Mel again.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Hello, Mel. My name is Rue. I came here because I need your help...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Yes. We need to use this cube to do that. Can you please help us?
    [​IMG] Nope.
    [​IMG] What?
    [​IMG] Rue, was it? Do you have any idea what you're dealing with? The [relic] is not your ordinary magic item. If you play with it...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Scared the life out of me.
    [​IMG] I'm sorry. Thought I should lighten the mood a little. You're so serious. But really, the [relic] is a very dangerous item. Many have pursued it and paid the price, some with their lives. [Relics] abound in this world, but the one you're seeking is Valen's [relic].

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Does the name ring a bell...? Obviously not. Valen was the most powerful Aeon. He could raise mountains and move the stars at will.
    [​IMG] No way...
    [​IMG] Who knows if it's true. Valen perished along with the other Aeons a long time ago. His demise is still a mystery. Some say he had too much power and destroyed himself.
    [​IMG] Really...?
    [​IMG] I hope, by now, you realize how dangerous your pursuit is. Valen's [relic] embodies powers beyond our knowledge. Who knows what will happen if the seal is broken. Worst case... It might destroy the world.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I have no choice. I've come this far... spent everyday for the last 3 years looking for the [relic]. I can't stop now.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Oh well, it's pretty obvious I can't talk you out of it. Ok, I'll help you. Give me the cube.
    [​IMG] !? Really!?
    [​IMG] You're gonna go after the [relic] with or without my help anyway... So I might as well help.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'll help you if you help me... It's about the Poppul Purrels. You played with them earlier, right?
    [​IMG] Poppul Purrels...? Oh, you mean those dwarfs?
    [​IMG] Yes. They're my cute helpers. The 4 of them help me around the atelier.
    [​IMG] 4? That's strange. I only saw 3.
    [​IMG] One of them is missing. I sent him to go shopping, and he hasn't come back since. I don't think he went away far. I'm so worried about him.
    [​IMG] You want me to find him?
    [​IMG] Exactly. I'll examine the cube if you find him. Compared to looking for the [relics], it's easy, right?
    [​IMG] Yes.
    [​IMG] Come back here when you find him. By then, I should be done examining the cube.
    [​IMG] Thank you.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] There's something I want to ask you. Never mind. I'll save it for next time.
    [​IMG] Are you sure?
    [​IMG] Uh-huh. I'll see you later.
    [​IMG] Goodbye.
    [​IMG] B'Bye.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] He still doesn't have a clue.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [Perception] Wtf?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What are you doing, Duke?
    [​IMG] I'm not Duke! I'm a star! Just go away and let me go on twinkling!
    [​IMG] You're not fooling anyone, Duke. Are you here to spy on me?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Man, this disguise was perfect. I don't know how the heck you spotted me. You're right. I'm here to spy on you. I know you left the cube with Fancy Mel. After you uncovered its secret, I was gonna snag it from you. Man, I still can't believe you saw me.
    [​IMG] (Anyone can tell. It's so obvious.)
    [​IMG] Ok, wise guy. I guess I have to go to Plan B... I'm gonna bust you up.
    [​IMG] Why don't you just give me back the tiara? You can't fight me in that stupid costume.
    [​IMG] Shut up! I stayed up all night makin' it. It was worth it. This is my finest act yet.
    [​IMG] So, you're convinced that you're a star now?
    [​IMG] I'm not convinced! I AM! I am a star... I am a star...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Here comes the pain! It's my time to shine!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Ok, give me back the tiara.
    [​IMG] It's not over, Rue! You'll be my lifelong rival!
    [​IMG] Whatever. Come on, where's the tiara?
    [​IMG] Tell you what. I'm gonna let you off today. Next time, you're gonna be the one with the busted nose. I'm gonna bring my best act yet! You can count on it!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] He must've busted his ears, too...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Thanks BRO :salute:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You better get down and apologize, or I'm gonna hurt you real bad.
    [​IMG] I not sorry! You dirty! You stinky! You kurwa jebana!
    [​IMG] Eh-heh! He's a total squirt! Hey, you stupid or somethin'?
    [​IMG] Shut up!
    [​IMG] YOU shut up, you little maggot! I'm gonna shut you up by choppin' up that fungus head of yours!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] ...The hell!? Who the-Hey!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You're right. This is perfect. I've been dyin' to get even. Let's get him.
    [​IMG] Yeah!

    We crush them easily.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] GET UP, you big tubba crap! Sheee... I need a new partna.
    [​IMG] Heh!? Hey, B-Bro!? Wait for me!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Yeah-Yeah.
    [​IMG] Mel asked me to find you. She's really worried about you. Come on, let's go back to her house.
    [​IMG] I ok. I go home by myself. What your name?
    [​IMG] Rue.

    Fancy Mel as Black Cat, with Poppul Purrel(s) as Konjad? Awesome.
