Re: Who is your favorite?

It would, but that restriction doesn't exist in TSS. ^_^ Nor is there any restriction on using items in the Cave of Trial. However, Alex does do the cave alone (because Luna stays on Caldor Isle when he goes to Meribia and is never in the party again), and it's rather difficult to pass the bosses if...

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

I can't say that ever occurred to me. This is why I love when new people discover this forum; they come up with things we old folk might never have thought of, or last thought of a decade or two ago. ^_^ It might interest you to know that the Star Dragon shows up a couple more times in the SegaCD ga...

Re: Who is your favorite?

Yeah, Alex definitely talks less in the other versions of the games. Although in the SegaCD game his dialogue was often a couple rows of "............" which was supposed to suggest that he was talking but the exact words weren't transcribed (as opposed to ... ... ... which is more eloquen...

Re: Lost Song Reminded Me of Lunar

I see the resemblance to the main SSH artwork in that there's a fairly sharp divide between blue tones and orange tones and a lot of curvature.

Re: Who is your favorite?

For Silver Star: Alex. As a kid, getting Alex to become a DragonMaster was very cool. And he has such a dignified pose (not to mention the post battle song is very very cool) and his skills always seemed cool to me. I'm curious, are you basing this more on the GBA game (LL) or the iOS one (SSS)? On...

Re: On Althenas actions.

Some of your last note is an artifact of translation. In the Japanese EBC, Luna's note doesn't mention Hiro by name; she just foresees that Lucia will have found someone (much as her recording in the Goddess Tower does, when she says Lucia must have had good friends to have gotten there). Also, in J...

Re: Jessica: strong female character or missed opportunity?

Dude. I just said I didn't care for the line. It was hardly a critique of the entire game or the company as a whole. Things aren't all or nothing, you know? You yourself said that you find some things offensive but you still love the game a whole lot; why would you assume I didn't feel the same? For...

Re: What is Canon?

I'm almost certain I saw references in SSS to events in the Vheen manga, or at least implications thereof. I'll have to go through my notes to find them.

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

Just to make sure you know, the original is the SegaCD version, not the Sega Saturn. The Saturn and PSX versions are basically identical (and the Saturn one is Japanese-only), so I want to make sure you look for the right one. Also, please don't dodge the language censor. Just type your thing and le...

I'd suggest painting triangles over the holes in black, to give the look of triangles while being functionally circles.

Re: Question about packaging.

To be honest, the SSSC map is nicer in concept than reality, because it's actually the TSS map and thus is not useful for SSSC -- the Temple of Althena is in a different location. But it's a color cloth map, so there's that. It only shows the first three towns by name and is more for atmosphere than...

Re: Saturn translation [in progress!]

The Saturn versions of SSS and EB are functionally identical to the PS ones we played except for fewer bromides and dungeons (in EB). But the music sounds much better. There are lists of differences on the main site, but they're mainly focused on translation differences rather than Saturn/PSX differ...

Re: In defense of Lunar: Legend...

I've replayed the beginning of LL relatively recently, up to Meribia or so, and I think it actually shows more character depth than any of the other versions of Lunar 1, at least in that part. Some examples: - Both Nash and Alex take the White Dragon Trial, which is some questions posed to them indi...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Cadence of Hyrule, on and off. It's a pretty short game, but since it's randomly generated, there's some replay value to it. I want to try the two-player mode, but my husband has been pretty busy so I haven't asked him.

Replaying SSH for the first time since it came out. Had totally forgotten that there's an added scene of Luna and Ghaleon talking about music, just after meeting Ghaleon for the first time.

Re: In This Thread I Explain Why This Game Isn't Canon.

The twin Dragonmasters are variously called Asty and Liza, Alicia and Lina, and Alicia and Laticia. Loka (Gaull) was a different one (though the Blue Dragon in SSS refers to Loka and Lina, changed to Alicia and Laticia in SSSC). The book is in the Vane Library in SSS/SSH. I want to play as a Beastwo...
