Let's Play Gensou Suikoden!; GS1 PART 10

LAST TIME: NOTHING OF IMPORT, WHICH I WOULD FEEL BAD ABOUT EXCEPT ...

IN THIS POST, THERE WILL BE ROBOTS. Also, on a much less cheerful note, content note for implications of rape 8|

12:33:36 <daikonpan> pick my remaining two party members: debt collector, fisherman with a gambling problem, fisherman with a drinking problem, old dude who hits things with a giant stick, useless mage, chef, blacksmith, bath guy, elevator inventor
12:33:52 <daikonpan> out of those the old dude is the only useful one
12:34:12 <Meursault> "giant stick" not being a double entendre?
12:34:31 <daikonpan> he's like seventy I really doubt it's a double entendre
12:34:42 <Meursault> you don't know that
12:34:46 <Meursault> it is japan, after all
12:34:47 <daikonpan> grossssssss
12:34:55 <Meursault> soaaaaaaaap
12:35:12 <Meursault> old dude and bath guy
12:35:25 <daikonpan> when I get the soap for this one fetchquest later I'm going to stick it in Kai's inventory for that
12:35:25 <Meursault> or elevator inventor because wtf does he do
12:35:43 <daikonpan> as a party member? hits people with wrenches for terrible damage.
12:35:58 <daikonpan> bath guy also sucks ass
12:35:59 <Meursault> and bath guy?
12:36:10 <daikonpan> I'm not sure what Sansuke's weapon is
12:36:14 <daikonpan> he sucks ass though
12:36:49 <Meursault> have him stand creepily close to old dude's giant stick
12:36:54 <Meursault> ...
12:37:18 <daikonpan> Please stop saying giant stick.
12:37:31 <daikonpan> oh
12:37:35 <daikonpan> the cook, btw, has a frying pan
12:37:39 <Meursault> you're the one who phrased it that way originally
12:37:53 <Meursault> okay yeah frying pan
12:37:53 <daikonpan> yes because he wields a bo staff which is a stick about as tall as he is
12:37:58 <daikonpan> and then you made it dirty!!
12:38:02 <daikonpan> WHY YOU DO THAT
12:38:16 <Meursault> because teenager.

So! Antonio and Kai it is. Kai has a level 8 Conjurer's Staff (which is exactly the same as OUR HERO's weapon); Antonio came with a level 2 something and now has a level 5 Milk Pan.

[BGM: Eternal Flow]

VIKTOR: "When will he be free?"
GIOVANNI: "I don't know. Tomorrow, perhaps, or the day after, or in a month, or even a year." Asshole.

IN THE INN...
KRIN: "You went to Lepant's mansion? Hee hee! You guys would never get in, even if you spent years in front of his house. I have a much better plan. Care to hear me out? You'll get to meet Lepant." I hate you.
Like, really hate you. A lot.
TIR: "Tell me what you have in mind."
KRIN: "Good. But this is not the place. Let's go to the inn." We're ... in the inn, Krin.

They are now by the beds!
VIKTOR: "Let's hear what you have to say."
KRIN: "Don't rush me now. Do you know why Lepant won't see anyone?"
GREMIO: "Why?"
KRIN: "He doesn't want to get involved with guys like you who defy the Empire. That's why he refuses visitors." That's ... kind of stupid. I can't imagine there are that many wannabe revolutionaries running around. Then again, if I can just barge into people's homes and go WANT TO JOIN THE ARMY (usually to random old women) and they go YEAH SURE WHY NOT...
CLEO: "But why? That's not like what Mathiu told us about him."
KRIN: "I don't know anything about that. Anyway, let's get down to details Lepant treasure two things above all else. One is his wife Eileen. The other is the great sword Kirinji." I like how his son doesn't make the list. Also, lack of punctuation after 'details' is intentional.
GREMIO: "So..."
KRIN: "So if you steal Kirinji, Lepant will most certainly come after you. Then, after you face him, you can talk to him, or blackmail him, or whatever you like. Understand?" This is the worst plan ever.
VIKTOR: "I see. So how do we steal Kirinji?" Like, this is a worse plan than anything that ever comes out of Meowth's mouth.
KRIN: "Hee hee. Just leave that to me. Wait here a while, then come on over to Lepant's house. I'll see you later, hee hee." No, seriously, worst plan ever.
Krin leaves.
GREMIO: "Are we pretending to be thieves now? How pathetic!"
VIKTOR: "Who's pretending? We are thieves." ilu Viktor

[fade out; no music, sound of owls]

CLEO:"It's about time we get going."

Krin is standing to the right of Lepant's house.
Saying hi to Giovanni just because: "That's enough! Please leave!"

KRIN: "Here you are. Wait just a moment."
Krin hops twice and a rope magically appears!
KRIN: "There. Now you can go in."
VIKTOR: "Aren't you coming?"
KRIN: "My job is done. Now it's your turn. I'll be waiting here." Asshole.

Up the rope and to the roof! Aaaand down the random stairs on the roof.
[BGM: Intrusion]
Dude needs to repair his roof. Or ... something.
Found some Shoulder Pads! Which I gave to Viktor in exchange for his boots. So now he's not wearing toe shoes and boots at the same time, how sad.
Hi, vault dude! Brb, stealing the junk.
A very poor one.
ROCK: "Are you people from the Liberation Army? I see. Mind if I ask you something?" If it's 'why are you breaking into my employer's house in the middle of the night', I'd have to say I mind, yes.
ROCK: "Is the Liberation Army's vault big?" Wut.
ROCK: "What, you don't have one yet? But, do you plan to build a big one? I see, I see. Master ☆☆☆☆☆☆, I was hoping to join the Liberation Army for quite some time. Please let me join!"
TIR: [Recruit]
ROCK: "Th-thank you so much. L-let's go and b-build a b-big one." And then he walks off! Without as much as a two-weeks notice. He are greatest guard.

I have a question. Why are there robots?
No, seriously.
There are also anthropomorphic slot machines wandering around. What.

The front door is locked! Also I have no idea where Lepant and Eileen are supposed to be sleeping. There aren't any locked rooms or anything.
Not ... gonna ... ask ...
VIKTOR: "Who are you?"
JUPPO: "Me? I'm Juppo the Trickster. Who are you?" This name remotely familiar? No? Will be soon!
CLEO: "Trickster? Did you make this contraption?" What?
JUPPO: "That's right, that's right. Do you like it?"
GREMIO: "You must be kidding."
VIKTOR: "Hey you, turn that infernal contraction off, right now." Yes, he did say contraction. PROOFS.
JUPPO: "Hmmm, that may be difficult. The dolls I can shut off, but the big one, impossible. So enjoy it, soldiers of the Liberation Army." I have no idea what you're talking about, dude.

[BGM: Joy Joy Time]
More like stab Juppo in the eye time!
FUCK YOU.

The chef's damage is beyond atrocious, btw.

[BGM: Intrusion]

CLEO: "This must be Kirinji. A remarkable piece of work."
[Obtained the Great Sword Kirinji]
GREMIO: "Cleo, let's get going."
VIKTOR: "Don't be such a chicken, Gremio."
GREMIO: "We can't have the McDohl scion getting captured as a common thief." I just spent 30 seconds looking through my caps to see if that's a bocchan right there, and it is. I'm counting it as him going bocchan, because <Ewan> ... yeah why not, he clearly /wanted/ to say bocchan

[BGM: Eternal Flow]
KRIN: "You're late, you're late. Did you get it? Good work. Let's go back to the inn." I hate you.

IN THE INN...
KRIN: "You did very well. I snuck in there once myself, but some kind of weird doll appeared, and I ran off without taking anything."
GREMIO: "You knew, yet you still made me go?"
KRIN: "No harm done, hee hee. Anyway..."

Krin walks offscreen.
[BGM: Strange Theme]
KRIN: "You must be tired. How about some tea?" NOT IF IT'S FUCKING BITTER!!
... dramatic pause.
CLEO: "Tea?"
GREMIO: "Tea?"
VIKTOR: "Did you say tea?"
Krin walks back.
KRIN: "Come, come, take a break."
VIKTOR: "Krin."
KRIN: "What is it? Hee hee."
VIKTOR: "You go ahead and drink it first."
Krin bounces.
KRIN: "Oh, no, you go ahead. I didn't work, and I'm not tired, hee hee."
VIKTOR: "That figures. Think we're stupid enough to fall for such an old trick?"
CLEO: "You did, once before." That's cold.
Fade out. Krin is in the bed.
VIKTOR: "What a scoundrel."

[BGM: Theme of Tension ~ Ensemble Version]
LEPANT: "Come out, you thieves! Or you'll be sorry!" Why is he orange?
Lepant barges into the front of the inn.
CLEO: "That was quick. He's found us already."
KRIN: "Heh heh. I told him where you were. So you'd get captured in your sleep." Why did they trust you at all.
VIKTOR: "Let's go."
☆☆☆☆☆☆, Cleo, Gremio, and Viktor walk into the front of the inn.
LEPANT: "Are you the one who stole Kirinji, my family's treasure? Return it immediately, or I'll..."

TIR: ".........." Don't blame me; Ewan picked it.
LEPANT: "You thieves! Too frightened to say anything?" I'm too impessed by your spray-on tan.
GREMIO: "What's the matter, Young Master. Let's tell him the truth."

[BGM: Main Theme ~ Guitar Version]
CLEO: "Master ☆☆☆☆☆☆, have you forgotten what Mathiu said? He's Lepant. Probably." He's also bright orange.
LEPANT: "What? Mathiu ... If Mathiu is involved, I'd like to help you." We just broke into your house, recruited your vault guard, and stole your junk.
LEPANT: "But there are certain things I cannot give up. So please return Kirinji and be on your way."

TIR: "We need your help."
LEPANT: "I'm sorry, but when I think about how my wife will miss me, I can't." I hate you.
TIR: "I understand. We'll return your sword."
LEPANT: "Thank you. I'll be on my way, then."

[BGM: Theme of Tension ~ Ensemble Version]
GIOVANNI: "Master!"
Giovanni barges in!!
LEPANT: "What's the matter, Giovanni?"
GIOVANNI: "Madam... Madam..."
LEPANT: "What about Eileen?"
GIOVANNI: "The new Military Commander took her away. I tried to stop him. But..."
LEPANT: "What!"

Talking to Krin just because.
KRIN: "Watch this. This rope's no big deal. Here we go..."
Krin turns left and right for a bit.
KRIN: "Can you untie me?" Nope! ... I hadn't actually seen that before.


SOLDIER: "You cannot see Commander Kraze without an appointment."
LEPANT: "What!"
Lepant beats the shit out of them.

Going inside...!

SOLDIER: "Who the hell are you? Are you aware that this is the Kraze residence, you dog?!"
LEPANT: "Shut up, you common criminal!"
Lepant beats the shit out of them, too.


LEPANT: "Hm? Hey you there! You've come just in time. Lend me a hand."
Lepant joins party! I kicked out the cook, because he's useless.

I look forward to killing your ass!
KRAZE: "How dare you get in the way of my promotion! And now you're getting in the way of my pleasure!" Eileen should drop rocks on him. She's a great mage 8|
LEPANT: "You're disgusting! Return Eileen immediately!" Eileen. Earth rune. DROPPING OF ROCKS.
CLEO: "I'll never forgive you." Light him on fire, Cleo! You're a mage too! And ☆☆☆☆☆☆ can probably Finger of Death him.

[BGM: This is Just a Rumour]
LEPANT: "Eileen!"
EILEEN: "Lepant!"
KRAZE: "That's far enough. Don't come any closer. I wouldn't want to hurt this beautiful lady."
GREMIO: "What a rogue. Rotten to the core. When I think that I was taking orders from this creature." Gremio, you can swear; we won't judge you.
KRAZE: "Say what you will. I have to protect myself. By the way, let me bring out an old friend of yours. Hey! Come on out!"

PAHN WALKS IN.
CLEO: "Pahn!"
KRAZE: "Heh. Pahn, capture those men. This is your chance to wipe the dirt off General Teo's name."
GREMIO: "Pahn, you're not really going to do as he says?"
PAHN: "Cleo, Gremio... Young Master..."
CLEO: "Pahn..."
PAHN: "I don't regret the decision I made that day. Even now." And that's why I hate you.
KRAZE: "That's right, Pahn."
PAHN: "Yet my heart still aches. I -- I want to follow my heart. Whether my heart is right or wrong will be judged by history." wut
KRAZE: "Pahn, what are you talking about?"
PAHN: "You're a pig in human skin! Take this!"
Pahn beats the shit out of Kraze!
VIKTOR: "You seem to be hated by a lot of people." No way, Viktor.
Kraze backs up.
KRAZE: "Now wait a minute, take it easy. Think of what will happen to your father Teo if anything happens to me."

TIR: "You're the one person I can't forgive."
KRAZE: "You, you d-don't really mean to... h-help."
Fade out, sound of violence happening. :)

[BGM: Eternal Flow]

Talking to Pahn first!
PAHN: "Young Master -- I mean Commander ☆☆☆☆☆☆ -- please let me join the Liberation Army. I cannot ask to be forgiven, but even so, I would like to be of service to you.
I do need more stars, I guess.
TIR: "Pahn, lend us a hand."
PAHN: "Y-young M-master... Thank you so much. My life is in your hands, Commander ☆☆☆☆☆☆."

[BGM: Main Theme ~ Guitar Arrange]
LEPANT: "Commander ☆☆☆☆☆☆, it appears that I, too, am now a fugitive. I pretended to be blind to the Empire's cruelties, just to protect my family. And look where it's gotten me."
He turns to Eileen.
LEPANT: "Eileen..."
EILEEN: "Yes."
LEPANT: "You are no longer my wife." Wut.
EILEEN: [backs up] "W-why, Lepant?"
LEPANT: "I am joining the Liberation Army. I probably won't be able to return."
EILEEN: "........." Eileen, why are you married to an idiot.
EILEEN: "You're a cruel man. What do you take me for?"
LEPANT: "If you come along, you'll suffer." Dude, she's one of the better mages in this game and you're useless. STFU.
EILEEN: "I've been prepared for the worst, ever since I married you." She walks back over to him!
LEPANT: "Commander ☆☆☆☆☆☆, please let me lend the Liberation Army a hand."
Lepant recruited! Weird that the diction here's different from normal. Eileen and Giovanni also joined, but I guess they don't get a blurb :'(

Talking to them!
EILEEN: "Thank you very much. Lepant really wanted to help you for some time."
LEPANT: "We need a bit of time to prepare, but we'll join you at Penis Castle very soon." Why is this still funny.

Back to the castle! Still size 1.
[BGM: Island Fortress]

GREMIO: "Why Varkas... Sydonia... what are you two doing here?"
VARKAS: "We heard some rumors about you, and figured this would be a good chance to return the favor we owe you. We'd like to join the Liberation Army. Hey Sydonia, you say something too."
SYDONIA: "Heh. Hey there."
VARKAS: "Oh well. By the way, I'd like to say hello to Lady Odessa."
GREMIO: "O-Odessa's..."
Mathiu walks up! Wonder where he was; it's not like there's much on that half of the floor. Checking on the item store?
MATHIU: "Odessa has gone north on a mission. Master ☆☆☆☆☆☆ is our leader while she's away."
VARKAS: "North? Hmmmmm? Oh well... In any case, congratulations, ☆☆☆☆☆☆. Leader, eh? Very impressive."
MATHIU: "Commander ☆☆☆☆☆☆, how about holding a banquet to welcome Lepant, Varkas, Sydonia and all of our new friends?"

TIR: "Now wait a..."
VIKTOR: "Great idea, Master Mathiu. You agree, don't you, ☆☆☆☆☆☆?"
GREMIO: "Well then, I'll cook my best recipes."
Fade out.

[BGM: Strange Theme]

Saying hi to everyone!
PAHN: "Gremio's cooking is the best in the land, I tell you. That slop the Imperial Army serves is so..."
CLEO: "Pahn! Can't you be more quiet while you eat?"
MATHIU: "I myself prefer to drink quietly."
VIKTOR: "Ha ha ha. Ho ho ho. Hee hee hee." That's disturbing.
GREMIO: "Having fun, Young Master?" I think I veto'd the banquet :(
VARKAS: "Yo Master ☆☆☆☆☆☆! Let's crush those Imperials right away."
SYDONIA: "Heh."
TAIHO: "☆☆☆☆☆☆, the moon is beautiful tonight." Fascinating.
LEPANT: "This is a fine crew, Commander ☆☆☆☆☆☆. I'm glad I came." What gave that impression, the debt collector or the alcoholics or the elevator inventor?
EILEEN: "Lepant really seems to be enjoying himself. He must truly hate the Empire."

Stepping out of the room, aaaaand...
[BGM: Theme of Tension ~ Impact Version]
RANDOM NINJA: "☆☆☆☆☆☆, I'll take that rune on your right hand. Give it to me!"
TIR VS ASSASSIN, FAITO
Ninja vanishes in a flash of flower petals on round three.

PAHN: "Master ☆☆☆☆☆☆! Are you all right? You scoundrel!"
It's probably not that hard, though...
NINJA: "Ha ha ha! The Liberation Army indeed. Do you really think you can defeat the Imperial forces? Fools."
CLEO: "Say that again!"
NINJA: "Watch your back, ☆☆☆☆☆☆. Lady Windy is always ready to destroy you!"

Fade out.
[BGM: Island Fortress]
☆☆☆☆☆☆ is next to his bed, and Pahn, Gremio, and Cleo are standing outside his room.
PAHN: "I'll stand watch over Master ☆☆☆☆☆☆." It's not as though you've betrayed me before or anything.
GREMIO: "No, I'll protect him tonight."
VIKTOR: "Stop this silly argument. Why don't you both stand watch?"

Saying hi...
GREMIO: "Please get plenty of rest, Young Master. I'll be protecting you."
PAHN: "Master ☆☆☆☆☆☆, from tonight onwards, I shall be on guard duty here." Grrrrreat.
VIKTOR: "Stop this silly argument. Why don't you both stand watch?"
Walking over to the bed aaaaand fade out.

Pahn and Cleo are in the room. Gremio walks over.
GREMIO: "Good morning, Young Master. It's another beautiful day outside."
Saying hi to Pahn and Cleo brings up their usual lines: "Where's my food." and "Master ☆☆☆☆☆☆ is thinking about Teo."

Walking over to save...
Haha, Viktor's line: "Hey ☆☆☆☆☆☆! Don't look so morose! You'll depress everyone else!"
