 CHAPTER 3 MAPS AND PICTURES

 

TORTE wakes up with KAMYU sitting next to him. the two of them ended up in a church near DELCADAR. surviving such a fall without a single wound. only the “HERO” can have such good luck…

 

KAMYU JOINS THE PARTY!!!

 

before they head out, KAMYU wants to thank the sister who helped them. while talking to her, they learn that general GREIG sealed off the southern exit of DELCADAR and prepares his army to march out.

also, two dangerous prisoners have escaped from jail. this information, however, TORTE and KAMYU have already had…

 

once outside, the two plan their next move. KAMYU is aware of the fact that ISHI is the hero’s birthplace. he understands how important saving the village is. since the direct way to ISHI is closed off, they have to take another one. luckily, KAMYU knows of such a road. but first there is one small thing KAMYU himself needs. to get it, they have to return to DELCADAR. in disguise they head back to the DELCADAR CASTLE TOWN – it’s lower parts, to be exact.

 

the item in question is the so-called RED ORB. KAMYU had stolen it together with his partner DECK. when KAMYU was captured and sent to prison, DECK was supposed to hide the RED ORB under the garbage pile in the LOWER CASTLE TOWN. unfortunately, KAMYU is not able to find it here.

they seek help from the lady who runs the lodgings in the eastern parts of the town. from her they learn that DECK has bought a house in the finer parts of DELCADAR and opened up a shop there. that bastard! could he have sold the RED ORB?!

盗賊 THIEF                 宿屋 HOSTEL
after a little help from a girl and her dog (in exchange for some berries) the small party is able to sneak into the upper area of DELCADAR and confront DECK. it turns out that he had only sold the ORB and started business here, to get KAMYU out of prison. but since he knew how important that treasure was to his friend, DECK had managed to find out where the ORB ended up:

general GREIG had it transported to the DELCADAR TEMPLE that lies south-east across the plains.

 

KAMYU is grateful for DECK’s help and the party of two can finally continue their journey. to get around the blockade at DELCADAR’s gate, they need to return to DELCADAR HILLS via the LOWER CASTLE TOWN. from there they have to go through the HIDDEN NAPGANA WOODS.

 

 

inside the woods, KAMYU teaches TORTE how to use the smithy stand and shares a little bit about his life as a thief. afterwards they stumble upon a strange root that shows them some kind of vison. there is a dog next to TORTE and KAMYU; and according to the vision, it has once been the bridge builder of NAPGANA WOODS. he was transformed by a mean BABY IMP…

   ROOT        LEAF        LUMBER
following the vision, the heroes manage to defeat said devil. soon after, the bridge builder, who is now no longer a dog, appears. he has already repaired the bridge that TORTE and KAMYU need to cross. while resting at his hut, the bridge builder mentions something about the root from before.

it seems to be part of the great TREE OF LIFE that is said to be located in the center of LOTOZETACIA. apparently, the root doesn’t just show visions to everyone, but instead, just to those chosen by the tree. this might be one more conformation that TORTE is in fact the reincarnated hero.

now that the bridge is repaired, he and KAMYU are able to leave the woods towards the western parts of the DELCADAR REGION. before heading to the temple and retrieving the RED ORB for KAMYU, they should stop by ISHI VILLAGE which is right around the corner.

TORTE enters his hometown, but none of the people there – not even his mother PELRA – seem to recognize him. he couldn’t be her son TORTE, she says. TORTE was only 6 years old.

when he encounters a young EMMA, a young version of himself, as well as his gramps TEO, TORTE is confused. TEO asks the hero to visit the GREAT ISHI FALLS and examine the tri-shaped rock standing there.

suddenly, they all start to disappear. KAMYU appears instead, telling TORTE that he fell asleep next to the glowing tree. so that’s what this whole thing was: just another vision of the past.

then… TORTE faces the present: his home, ISHI VILLAGE, lies in ruins.

KAMYU is shocked. doing something like this to a whole village, just because the so-called hero was raised here…

 

they go to the waterfall, just as TEO told TORTE to do. under the rock they are able to dig up a box containing two letters and a mysterious blue stone.

 

the letters TEO had hidden inside the box, were written by him as well as TORTE’s birth mother. the hero learns of the friendship between YUGUNOA and DELCADAR, but in case his mother as well as TEO relied too much on this friendship (which they did), they wanted TORTE to know the truth:

YUGUNOA is the name of a far away kingdom that was overrun by monsters…16 years ago.

TORTE is the prince of this country and him being the hero of legends seems to have something to do with the attack. TORTE’s mission to drive off the darkness from this world was not clear to either his mother nor TEO. with their letters, they guide him towards the TRAVELER’S SHRINE, on the east-coast of DELCADAR. the stone TORTE found in the box should be able to grant him access.

in order to uncover everything about his mission and origins, his birthmother and TEO both want him to learn more about the world.

the last thing TEO wrote was how much happiness TORTE brought had brought him…

 

that’s a a lot to take in for the young hero.

he and KAMYU head east. but instead of going to the shrine directly, they decide to visit DELCADAR TEMPLE. KAMYU is still trying to get his hands on the RED ORB and the TEMPLE is located on their way to the east-coast, anyway.

 

TRUTH         MOTHER    

 

inside the temple, TORTE and KAMYU find a bunch of soldiers lying on the ground. the two head deeper inside and discover a strange robot monster. defeating it gives them an opportunity to ride it and find more treasures. shortly after that, they reach the temple’s center.

here, TORTE and KAMYU are able to find the precious RED ORB. unfortunately, two evil beasts want to bring it into their possession. time for a fight!...

afterwards, KAMYU thanks TORTE for his help.

he had almost lost the hope of ever holding the RED ORB in his hands agains. the two leave the temple and head towards the TRAVELER’s SHRINE.

once they reach the east-coast, TORTE and KAMYU are ambushed by a group of DELCADAR-soldiers, led by their general: GREIG.

with the help of the stone they found in TEO’s box, the duo is able to enter the TRAVELER’s SHRINE at the last second - and manage to escape.

the shrine teleports TORTE and KAMYU to a far away place, while outside of it, GREIG is unable to break the seal on the door. he is bursting with fury.

the general grabs the piece of cloth, TORTE lost during the escape, and promises to chase the CHILD OF THE DEVIL to the ends of the earth.
