Postby Joshifer » Sat Jan 09, 2010 3:16 am

ive been a major lunar fan since day 1, (TSS) i got this at launch and i couldnt force myself to play it, so can someone explain the plot and happenings and motives and basicly ending of the game?. i dont want every detail just a summery of the major happenings motives of the villian and ending.

There are actually worse games out there, and yes the game is mediocre but even you can make your way through this game. I've been a Lunar fan since 1993, and I played Dragon Song through to completion. If you bought it you might as well play it so you understand why it feels like something other than Lunar.

lol to this topic. SP's right, this game isn't unplayable. I logged 55 hours on it.

The plot isn't very relevant to the series, but writing out a summary is sounding fun to me... so here goes, anyway. The villain Ignatius is leading the Vile Tribe in war against the beast folk and the humans. (Beast folk lead the civilized lands in this game.) Ignatius is looking for Althena, who has gone into hiding specifically to get away from him. Why? Because Ignatius is the Dragonmaster and he (apparently) wants Althena to stop moping around and do her job (that is, rule the world). But he wants Althena to do her job his way, and that would be bad, evidently.

Althena's disguised form is Lucia, the childhood friend of the main character, Jian. Lucia falls into Ignatius' hands about halfway through the game. Jian goes on a quest to convince the dragons to turn him into Dragonmaster #2 and thus be capable of defeating Ignatius. Jian goes on to succeed in an unexciting way. Most dramatic thing that happens in the end is that Lucia sacrifices herself to protect Jian. Not that it matters though, because she promptly comes back to life like nothing ever happened. Also, Ignatius suspiciously falls to his (assumed) death, and you don't get to fight him.

Once I think that there's a half a chance that this game will be remade I'll worry about spoilers. I suppose that's license to rule in favor of my own amusement indefinitely. ^_^

I don't think even GA is stupid enough to recycle this piece of crap, and if they are it's no wonder Lunar 3 will be just a dream.

There's a plot?

Are you sure?
Don't blame me, Lucia promised me lots of snuggles and cuddles if I would be her PR guy.

There is a plot. A plot to rape loyal fans of the series.
