The Razing of the...hey wait



Current Zar note: I did this LP in 2007! I left my write-up mostly unchanged.




We're getting very very close to the end now, folks. :O

GOD I LOVE IT HERE

I BELIEVE YOU <3

OH YEAH I decided to call Mom a few times in here, since I haven't been doing that really to see what she says.

Paula: ?

Ness: SHHHHH.

Paula: So who was that

Ness: no one let's go

In case you were wondering about that. SAVING THE WORLD IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN HOMEWORK!

Hahahahaha

SATURN VALLEY REALLY BUT THAT'S KIND OF CLOSE I GUESS

Awww

Anyway enough of that, let's unload some stuff.

Since I didn't run into one before LET'S SEE JUST WHAT THESE THINGS ARE

that is so unsettling

jahahghahgagh uhgh

OW SCREW YOU

Anyway back to Saturn Valley to do what I was supposed to do.

I'LL WAIT THREE MINUTES FOR YOU ANY DAY MR. SATURN

Daddy? Hmm.

I NEVER GET TIRED OF THIS

Woah, awesome! Might pick some of these up.

THERE'S THAT FRIGGING PENDANT I MISSED BEFORE

Not that big an up on defense, but it has some awesome side effects like protecting you from Flash and Ice attacks or something. I can't remember exactly now except that it's pretty awesome.

Preparing myself, hmm hmm

wtf what am i doing here

THE WILD FOURSIDE BUFFALO

GOTTA KEEP JEFF STOCKED UP

Hey a mad duck

NO, IT WILL NEVER BE OVER!

:D :D

DAKOTA!!!

It's so hard to do this every time. :<

Okay enough of that. WHY HEY LOOK AT THAT MR. SATURN LOOKIN THINGY THERE

Okay NOW let's advance the plot

Jeff quietly weeps to himself.

Gasp! Who could it be?!

What kind of enemies? Hmm.

WHEEEE

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEE

WHY YES, NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT

NO, NOT ONETT!

Way ahead of ya.

VERY DARK, I IMAGINE

Who is this guy?

LOOK I'LL GET YOUR METEORITE OKAY JUST GET OFF MY BACK

Time to bag us some meteorite

Uh oh.

Every door in Onett is locked at this point, and won't open no matter what you do. Just gotta keep goin.

Aww dang floating triangles i hate you guys

Ghost of Starman can be NASTY, and is really irritating to fight, even if you're overleveled like I am. Argh. They also have a 1/128 item...I think it's the Goddess Ribbon for Paula? It's something for Paula, I think.

OW FRICK JESUS

These guys are really irritating as well, and you'll see why in a second.

This can be KIND of annoying, but it's not really why I hate then. You'll see.

yeah yeah let's keep going

Ness's home is still open though! Although it's very dark.

I love Ness's mom, she's handling this so well.

Darn it yes now I'm hungry.

I DO THINK SO

YOU FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT, TRACEY!

Not that annoying really.

THINGS ARE NOT GOING WELL HERE, AS YOU CAN SEE

wait a minute starmen don't have mouths

I have no idea what that does, since I've never seen it work.

NOOOOOO NOT MY JERKY

HA IN YOUR FACE

And the lesson here is that when you're in Onett at this point, ALWAYS throw up a PSI Shield when you run into a Ghost of Starman. ALWAYS.

NO NOT AGAIN

Gaaah

Tho if you're runnin low on PP, a lesser shield will be okay. One shield absorbs the attack, the other reflects it.

Pokey's house is locked too. Hmm.

ARRRRGH

THERE THAT'S WHY THE EVIL EYES SUCK

When you're diamondized you're dead, for all intents and purposes. You can't move or do anything, and...

The screen turns red just like if you were dead. If you get diamondized when you're the last person standing, you lose the battle and die. And you can see there that since Ness got diamondized, Paula is the next in command, so she gets the Auto Fight and Run Away commands. Those commands will keep moving along as more people die, so it'd got to Jeff next, then if he died, Poo.

Only healers can cure diamondization, I think. That and Horn of Life/Cup of Lifenoodles, or PSI Healing Omega.

DARN IT

As you can see, it's like Ness and Poo are dead for all intents and purposes. Darn it.

Hahahahaha diamond people. I think Diamond Dog can diamondize people in your party, to make that battle even more annoying than it was before.

There we go.

I wanted to try something, so I decided to go here to cure Poo.

IF YOU REALLY WANT TO BUDDY THEN GO FOR IT

WOooo

DARN IT I was hoping for vitality. eh, what can ya do.

DARN IT I was REALLY hoping for vitality here. Ah well.

Sell this for some cash, alright.

Just to compare. HER VITALITY IS 19?! No wonder she dies at the drop of a hat.

DARN IT

I then realized that having Ness be diamondized would give me a chance to let the others catch up to him, since he's still like ten levels above everyone else, and I don't feel as guilty about that as just letting him die in battle. SO.

I probably would have kept with this longer, but I hate how everything turns red when someone is dead/diamondized. So I wasn't entirely persistant. :B

HE'S NOT A DIAMOND STATUE OR ANYTHING IS HE? HAHA JUST KIDDING.

ness don't put up with no slackers no sir

Haha, that's a neat detail though. I think, just that he says different things if Ness is dead. Heh.

arrrrrrrrgh

STOP STEALING MY JERKY AAAAAAAAGH

Hahahahahaha

Looks like Nessmom doesn't notice. YOU LOOK SO SHINY AND PRETTY, NESS HONEY. HAVE SOME PASTA AND GO TO BED.

There was some other 1/128 item the enemies around here drop, but I can't remember what it is or who has it. I'm pretty sure it's not a meteotite though cause I've gotten two of them so far, and I have notoriously bad luck with the 1/128 items.

WOO and as for why everyone is all numbed...I have no idea. I bet an Evil Eye did that. Rrrrgh.

Having Poo mirror a Ghost of Starman is convenient because then he can use Starstorm without having to use any PP in the process. Haha lazy.

I really should have checked out Lier X. Agerate's house earlier on when he found the Mani Mani statue but I just forgot. :B OH WELL.

Okay enough leveling, let's do this.

At this point I couldn't remember if there was a boss battle for the meteorite or not, so I decided Ness had been a diamond statue long enough.

There we go.

HURRAY that was pretty easy, not counting the enemies in the area in general.

For some reason I felt like checking the descriptions of things. OKAY SURE here's the Magic Truffle.

Good stuff.

Kraken Soup! Restores HP almost to full, I think. Well except Poo.

MULTI BOTTLE ROCKETS FOREVER

Oh yeah, I had Poo mirror an Evil Eye here to see what would happen.

Wow, weird. Haha. That's pretty awesome though.

Alright! Now with the meteorite piece in tow, let's go back to Saturn Valley and get that Phase Distorter going!

We are really, really close to the end here, guys! And it's one heck of an end, let me tell you.

SO WHAT CAN BE WAITING FOR US IN SATURN VALLEY??? TUNE IN NEXT TIME!
