Let's Play Gensou Suikoden!; GS1 PART 7

Oh my god. You know how I've been keeping track of how many bathrooms I find? I found out where they keep the toilet paper. (That's a page from the Suikoden III manga, if you're wondering. If you're wondering about context, wellllll I can't really help you there.)

Thanks a bunch, Legendaryseeker, for helping me with describing images! :D

LAST TIME: BRB, HELPING REBELS (ie, five people in a sewer) MAKE WEAPONS OF KANGAROO DESTRUCTION. Fucking kangaroos.


Whee, walking back to Lenankamp. How fascinating.

I sure hope nothing
One of the green soldiers says, 'Heh heh. I knew the Liberation Army's hideout had to be here. Bet the traitors are all rounded up by now.'
happened
Odessa notices the innkeeper is on the ground, presumably injured. 'What happened? Are you all right?'
while we were gone.

[BGM: Theme of Tension ~Ensemble Version~]
INNKEEP: "The Imperials... They suddenly... I'm sorry... Lady Odessa."
ODESSA: "My god!" [BOLTS]
VIKTOR: "Hey, Odessa."
GREMIO: "Let's go after them, Young Master!"

Hi, innkeep!
INNKEEP: "Ohhh my god! I really can't... let you stay."
HAHAHAHAHA that still pulled up the save menu. Oh gods I love jrpgs sometimes. THANKS FOR BEING A SAVE POINT.

Down to the sewer! There are soldiers all over the place :'(

Offscreen, Odessa goes, 'Ohhhh!' HIGH PITCHED SCREAM sfx
Tir looks around a bit.
CLEO: "What was that?"
GREMIO: "Let's hurry."

Fuck it, lighting this group of soldiers on fire. Thanks, Cleo.

VIKTOR: Are you all right, Odessa? 'Oh, yeah, sure, Viktor. Just fatally injured. I've had worse.'
Odessa sits up.
ODESSA: "C-come... you can come out now."
She was hiding a boy under her cape!  Everyone surrounds an injured and kneeling Odessa.
ODESSA: "Quickly! You must run..."
KID: "O-OK." [does so]

[BGM: Theme of Sadness ~Ensemble Version~. SOUNDTRACK SO SAAAAAAD.]
GREMIO: [startled, steps forward] "Lady Odessa! You're bleeding!" Gremio so polite. Also ... NO SHIT.
VIKTOR: "Odessa! What have you done? Without you, the Liberation Army..."
ODESSA: [shaking] "I'm... so sorry, Viktor. It appears... I've chosen to be a woman... rather than commander of... the Liberation Army." What the fuck? What the fuck are you saying, Odessa? Fuck, shit like this is why I say I like Odessa and hate her lines. Fucking hell.
ODESSA: "I couldn't let that child die. I'm a failure... as a leader..." Uhhhhhh I think every other protagonist isn't willing to let kids die, either. Hell, half of the villains in SuikoII and SuikoIV aren't a bit okay with that shit. They don't go blaming their gender for having some semblance of morality!
CLEO: [steps forward] "Don't talk, Odessa. You'll reopen your wound!" Eh, she's going to die anyway.
ODESSA: "☆☆☆☆☆☆, will you.. come here?" You do know he's cursed so everyone he likes dies, right?
He steps forward, though.
ODESSA: "I have... two requests. First, give this earring... to a fellow called Mathiu... in the village of Seika..." Where's that?
VIKTOR: "Stop it, Odessa. I don't want to hear any final requests!" Too fucking bad.
ODESSA: "Viktor... thank you, but... I know the end is near. ☆☆☆☆☆☆, take it..."
Tir kneels down!
[Earring received.]
And then he gets back up.
ODESSA: "M-my other request... Please throw my body... into the stream there..." Shitty place for a burial. Zing!
GREMIO: "What? But why? I can't do such a horrible thing." Conveniently, she's asking Tir, not you. ... What a great friend Odessa is.
ODESSA: "Please... ☆☆☆☆☆☆."
'I can't.' / 'As you wish.' ... Man, either way I'm a jerk. :D
TIR: "As you wish."
VIKTOR: "☆☆☆☆☆☆! How can you..."
ODESSA: "Thank you, ☆☆☆☆☆☆. You understand me, don't you? Viktor... if the Liberation forces find out I'm dead... the Movement will lose faith and die. That is why you must keep my death a secret. Our tiny, newborn hope... must be kept alive..."
ODESSA: "If you... ever see Flik again, tell him that his kindness always saw me through hard times..." He's a controlling asshole, you know.
ODESSA: "Well... it appears the end is near... ☆☆☆☆☆☆, I hope that you will be able to see the Free World that I was... never able to..."
Odessa collapses.
Fade to black.
VIKTOR: "Goodbye.... Odessa."

[BGM: none.]
It stays blacked out for a while.
For whatever reason, it didn't pop up the dialogue, but! [SOUL EATER LEVEL 1] I can now cast Finger of Death! Well, Deadly Fingertips in this game, but it's Finger of Death in SuikoIV. Oh yeah I'm awesome.

Back in the inn! The innkeeper's been replaced with a different innkeep.
GREMIO: "I suppose we should go to Seika."
CLEO: "Yes. And find this fellow Mathiu. But to get to Seika, we have to pass through the Fortress of Kwaba."
VIKTOR: "The Fortress of Kwaba... that's going to be tough. But we'll give it a try."

Talking to the new innkeeper brings, "Come now, wipe your tears away. Stay at the Keyaki Inn! 70 bits per person per night." Jerk.

Still no music until I walk outside.

BYE, LENANKAMP!


Kwaba is south of Lenankamp by a lot.
[BGM: Gate]
CLEO: The fortress of Kwaba. It's Commander is Lord Ain Gide, an old friend of Master Teo's.
CLEO: "He doesn't know us, but he certainly knows your face." I'm picturing Teo keeping paintings of tiny-Tir in his wallet and showing absolutely everyone. He seems the type.
GREMIO: "Can we get away with it? Let's test our luck." You're a bad role model, Gremio.
VIKTOR: "No problem, don't worry. Meanwhile, let's decide on some fake names. We'll be in trouble if they ask us who we are."
GREMIO: "I'll be Roi."
CLEO: "I'll be Maria."
VIKTOR: "You don't look like a Maria."
CLEO: "What did you say?"
VIKTOR: "Hmmm, I guess I'll be... Schtolteheim Reinbach III. How's that sound?"
CLEO: "........."
GREMIO: "........."
GREMIO: "Young Master, how about you?"
'Masamune' / 'Piisuke' / 'Schtolteheim Reinbach IV'
TIR: "Schtolteheim Reinbach IV."
CLEO: "........."
GREMIO: "........."
VIKTOR: "Ok, let's go Roi, Maria, Schtolteheim Reinbach IV."

SOLDIERS: "Hey you! You there!"
Schtolteheim Reinbach III: Me, sir? I'm just a poor jujube vendor, with hungry kids waiting at home...
SOLDIERS: "Not you! The little runt. You look like that fugitive, ☆☆☆☆☆☆ McDohl..."
Ain Gide walks up!
AINGIDE: "What's the matter?"
SOLDIER: "Sir. I thought this young fellow here looked like ☆☆☆☆☆☆ McDohl, the fugitive."
AINGIDE: "☆☆☆☆☆☆? You there. Show your face."
CLEO: "Uh oh, if Lord Ain sees me..."
GREMIO SHOVES ☆☆☆☆☆☆ INTO A WALL.
GREMIO: "You! I've just about had it with you! Always causing trouble! And completely useless too! Now they think you're a fugitive. You're a pain in the neck even when you're doing nothing! Sir, if you find this boy suspicious, I'd be glad to lop off his head, right here and now."
SOLDIER: "W-wait a minute..."
GREMIO: "Don't worry, sir. I can't be thought of as harboring a fugitive. You, prepare to die!"
SOLDIER: [steps up] "No, stop, stop!"
AINGIDE: "Hmmm. Think about it, Rosh. McDohl's son wouldn't be dressed like a beggar. You all, you may pass."
SOLDIER: "But sir, I think..."
AINGIDE: "Don't worry about it, Rosh. Let them go."
AIN GIDE: Hey, sonny. Take good care of your father.
We walk the rest of the way down!
GREMIO: "Forgive me, Young Master. Even though we were in danger, I went too far. I'm ready for any kind of punishment. You can even cut off my head..."
VIKTOR: "Hey, hey, Gremio. It's no big deal. Safe passage is all that matters. ☆☆☆☆☆☆ has a big heart."
'Unforgivable!' / 'I understand, Gremio.' Going to not be a jerk. If you press the issue, Gremio goes like 'you could even cut off my head if you'd like ...' and Viktor is like 'DO ME A FAVOUR AND FORGIVE GREMIO.'
TIR: "I understand, Gremio."
GREMIO: "Y-young Master..."

DUDE RIGHT THERE:
CHANDLER: "Howdy, I'm Chandler. Just an idle peddler. I travel here and there in search of a profit. I hope someday I'll have my own store."
