Let's Play Gensou Suikoden!; GS1 PART 9

Still not much in the way of image descriptions! At the moment I figure I'll get those in when I have energy but for now I'm just going to try to get a bunch of posts up with functional links.

LAST TIME: CASTLE GET. FINALLY OUT OF THE PROLOGUE BITS. \o/


The only suggestion I got that I liked was a bunch of spaces. So I'm going to go with an old standby, and...


VIKTOR: "Very slick, Gremio." Giggling so much.

[fade out]
[BGM: still The Beginning]
Mathiu walks up from next to Tai Ho, and ...

MATHIU: "Let's designate this day the New Liberation Army's Founding Day." I always did want a holiday!
VIKTOR: [bounces up] "Great idea! Let's have a banquet tonight!"
CAMILLE: "Hey, what about my money?" no one cares
TAIHO: "Don't be a bore, young lady. We'll think about that later." No we won't!
[TELEPORTY SOUND]

[BGM: Touching Theme]
KNOCK PLEASE.
LEKNAAT: "I have brought you some gifts. One of them is this. Please accept it."
Leknaat steps forward.
LEKNAAT: "This is the Stone Tablet of Promise. Your true power comes from colleagues with whom you share your ideals. So go and find fellow soldiers-in-arms. The names of your new friends will be carved into the Tablet." I always did want a magic rock.
LEKNAAT: "The other gift is..."
Luc teleports in! I always did want a clone to stand next to my rock. ... Wait. Why the fuck does Luc count as a gift? Even if he's not a real boy, that's still pretty rude, Leknaat. Asshole.
LUC: "Been a while, eh? Remember me? I'm Luc, Lady Leknaat's number one apprentice." Does she have any other apprentices?
LEKNAAT: "His power should be of use to the Liberation Army." Like hell.
LEKNAAT: "☆☆☆☆☆☆, history has only just begun to move. Keep your spirits high. Let us meet again someday." That's just fine, as long as you knock first.
Leknaat teleports away, to come back again unannounced some other day. Ideally in Tir's room in the middle of the night. That's creepy.

[BGM: The Beginning]
LUC: "And so, I'll be joining you. Hope you don't mind." It's a good thing you're useful in II, or else I might hold a grudge about how easily you die in I.
GREMIO: "I'm absolutely sure that Lady Leknaat just got rid of a troublesome burden." Ass.
CLEO: "... Yeah... I guess so."
MATHIU: "Commander ☆☆☆☆☆☆, the 'vessel' is now in our possession." What?
MATHIU: "Now it is time to find some recruits. In other words, recruit fellow comrades-in-arms." You just said that, dumbass.
MATHIU: "A fellow by the name of Lepant lives in the town of Kouan. Let's recruit him. He's sure to be useful."

[fade out]
[BGM: Island Fortress]
I'm in my temporary dinky room! Cleo's in there, too.
Gremio walks in!
I do like being bocchan'd first thing in the morning.
GREMIO: "It's not much of a place, but home is where the heart is. When you're ready, let's go to Master Mathiu's place. We must consult him regarding this fellow Lepant."
Gremio joins party! Silently.

Going to say hi to everyone! Eeeeveryone. And then I'll do some recruiting, and will start on the quest for Lepant after you guys pick my party.
CLEO: "Master ☆☆☆☆☆☆ is thinking about Teo."
Luc and his magic rock.
LUC: "What do you want?" [fades to Tablet]
CURRENT RECRUITS (9 out of 108)
Tenkai Star: ☆☆☆☆☆☆; Tenki Star: Mathiu; Tenkai (Tenkan in rest of series) Star: Luc; Tenei Star: Gremio; Tenman Star: Cleo; Tenko Star: Viktor; Tenyu Star: Camille; Tenhei Star: Tai Ho; Tenson Star: Yam Koo. And that's my star list right now. SUCKS, HUH.
Trying to walk downstairs to talk to whoever else!
GREMIO: "Y-young M-master, that's not the way to Master Mathiu's room." Shut up.

MATHIU: "Good morning, Commander ☆☆☆☆☆☆. Did you get a good night's sleep? Let's get right down to business. Lepant is in the township of Kouan. He is a man who honors friendship. If you tell him that you come with my introduction, he's sure to join up with you."
Cleo and Viktor walk in!
VIKTOR: "Hey ☆☆☆☆☆☆, you're taking me along, of course. Right?"
CLEO: "Master ☆☆☆☆☆☆, I'll come along too." Aaaaaand from this point on, I don't think she'll ever call me bocchan again.
MATHIU: "Who else will you take, Commander ☆☆☆☆☆☆?"
Iiiiiit doesn't matter since I'm going to leave it up to you guys after I recruit everyone. Taking Tai Ho and Yam Koo for now.

CAMILLE: "When do you plan on paying me what you owe?"

The basement of my castle has some dungeons in it. There's not really anything else here at the moment. Just large empty rooms.

I can now control the boat on the world map! Can't land anywhere except Kaku and the castle, though.

TO KAKU!
[BGM: Eternal Flow]
First, Sergei in the bar...
SERGEI: "Listen to me, I happen to be an inventor. After much hard work, I came up with an amazing invention, something that would impress even the dwarves. But none of the castle keepers understand what a wonderful invention it is. What is it, you ask? It's called an 'elevator.'"

→ Don't recruit.
SERGEI: "Don't you understand how useful this thing is? You won't have to go up and down and up and down those staircases." Uh, your elevator only saves me time getting from first floor to fourth.
→ Recruit
SERGEI: "What, you? You're the leader of the Liberation Army? Of course, of course I'll help you! A liberating invention needs a liberated world."
[STAR GET DING]
Sergei joins!

Downstairs, where Tai Ho was...
Sup, Gaspar.
GASPAR: "Say, aren't you... I'm in serious trouble thanks to you. You took away Tai Ho, my best customer."
And that's all for now.

Meg still doesn't care about me. Neither does the cat.

Sharpened Yam Koo's m-ranged Uranami Spear to 5! It became Seigetsu Spear.

Hello, Seika! Mathiu's town.
Antonio's still in the inn, but he won't care about me for a bit. More importantly...
MARIE: "Really? You own a castle now? Then let me join you. Of course I'm not a warrior, but I can give your soldiers a bowl of soup when they're tired. Please, ☆☆☆☆☆☆."
DON'T RECRUIT: "I see, too bad. If you change your mind, let me know."
RECRUIT: "Good. Then let me prepare to move."
Marie joins! SAVE POINT GET.

In a random house:
ONIL: "Say you! I'm talking to you. You're the new leader of the Liberation Army, right? Old Onil here knows everything. I also know that the Liberation Army is short of people." HEY, WE HAVE ... 11. THAT'S NOT SHORT!
ONIL: "Maybe I should give you a hand."
DON'T RECRUIT: "I understand. Well, maybe someday you'll change your mind."
RECRUIT: "Great. Let's be off to Penis Castle. Of course I know where it is."
Onil joins!

IN MATHIU'S HOUSE: no star of destiny yet, sadly.
BOY 1: "I wish Master Mathiu would come back. Maybe he'll return if I finish my homework."
GIRL: "I wish Master Mathiu would come back! I want to marry him!"
BOY 2: "Maaaster Mathiuuu. I finished my homework -- so please come back." Didn't he give you a year's worth ...?

Far to the south of Seika is a boring little town called Great Forest! I doubt that's actually the town name.
This smith looks different! Hi, Maas!
MAAS: "Are you a member of the Liberation Army? Our boss Mace used to say, 'A sound body is the same as a sound mind.' When the world is twisted, so are people's minds. Please let me join the Liberation Army, so I can help straighten out people's minds." I don't think anyone can make Gremio straight.
DON'T RECRUIT: "I'm very disappointed, but I'll be here. Come back anytime."
RECRUIT: "Thank you very much. Let's be on our way to Penis Castle." He's going to straighten out dongs.

IN A HOUSE is a dude with a giant rug.
SANSUKE: "What? I'm Sansuke. An expert on baths."
DON'T RECRUIT: "Heh! If you don't have any business with me, beat it."
RECRUIT: "Join you? Sure. I'll come along."
Sansuke joins!

A few people in Great Forest talk about elves, but no one cares.

[BGM: Gate]
To the west of Kouan is the Fortress of Garan!
No, I just carry around this stick for my own entertainment.
KAI: "I heard about you, ☆☆☆☆☆☆. You're leading the Liberation Army. No, I'm not criticizing you, it's the path of your own choosing. Nevertheless, what will Teo think? All right, old Kai here will join you. The Master Stickfighter is as good as 100 men. Ha ha ha!" The Master Stickfighter in Penis Castle.
Kai joins! ... He's wearing the Scarlet Moon Empire's logo on his tunic. Subtle.

SOLDIERS' THOUGHTS ON ME GOING TO ANTEI, RIKON, AND TEIEN: "From here on ahead is Master Milich's domain. You may not pass without permission."

Speaking of which, upon trying to dock in Teien: "This is Master Milich's domain. You may not land without permission." I like that they don't recognise me and try to kill me or something.

Landing in Pirate's Fortress! No music, just sound of waves and gulls.
Sup, Kanak, Anji, and Leonardo!
KANAK: "Hi there."
ANJI: "Tai Ho, you guys are real oddballs. What's the big idea, getting holed up in that run-down castle on the lake?"
LEONARDO: "We run things around here."
Oh, good, I can't fight them right now.

Oh, whoops, got lost on the lake and ended up at Shasarazade.
Say hi to Sonya for me! She'd be so glad to hear it. Possibly glad with fire and new zombie dragons to replace the one I just offed, but glad.

Back to the castle!
SERGEI: "Welcome, welcome, take a look at this. Isn't it wonderful?"
ONIL: "I've heard that the protector of Shazarazade, whose name is Sonya, is very beautiful. Do you suppose she's better looking than me?" I think it only has one Z, Onil. ... Also, of course she is. Even if she does probably currently hate my guts.
MAAS: "A fine collection of tools you have here."
SANSUKE: "What's happening? Want to take a bath? You'll feel refreshed."
MARIE: "You must be tired. Get plenty of rest."
... talking to Marie a billion times. EVENTUALLY...
MARIE: "I finally opened my inn, but I have no time to prepare the food. Do you know any good cooks?"

To Seika!
ANTONIO: "I see that Madame Marie is in the Liberation Army. I''d be glad to work with her. Master ☆☆☆☆☆☆, I'd like to join you too. Fighting's not everything, you know."
DON'T RECRUIT: "That's too bad. Don't you trust my cooking?"
RECRUIT: "Thank you so much. I'll cook up some delicious meals."

Oh, right, nearly forgot Chandler up at Kwaba!
CHANDLER: "Howdy, I'm Chandler. Just an idle peddler. Liberation Army? Sounds like fun! OK, leave it to me. I've got medicine, serum, anything you need."
[recruit]
CHANDLER: "OK, let's go have a look at this castle of yours."

ANTONIO: "I shall cook something that will give everyone power! I'm fighting too!"
