Re: Vile tribe

"black magic" in English definitely has an evil connotation incompatible with dragons. Although now I wonder if it's used in other games...? Like, I think there's a book in Vane in TSS that refers to dragon magic; was that "black magic" in Japanese Good observation! I had to thi...

Re: Vile tribe

L-l-lore! My favorite. Just as Ghaleon's being a member of the tribe appears nowhere in TSS or SSS themselves, the sympathetic look at the tribe also really only comes out in these non-game stories...aside from a throw-away scene in SSS where you help one of them during a cave collapse, and I guess ...

Re: Questions regarding the series

It's an interesting one. This is the unsuccessful appellate lawsuit by Studio Alex, where it sought royalties for SSS on Sega Saturn and damages for SSS on PS, PC, and Working Designs version, based on the idea that SSS was a derrivative work of TSS and thus subject to the joint copyright on TSS hel...

Re: What is Canon?

But what if I told you that my Lunar 1 canon of choice is the novelizations, in which Kyle is a pirate captain with his own Dragonship? This is the only true Lunar canon! And wasn't Magic City Althena some sort of space rocket? It's so nutty that it must be authoritative. I'm going to muddy the can...

Re: Seeking Lunar Merchandise

A word to the wise (collectors): in the event that you're having trouble on auctions or Alun can't bear to part with Festas, you can find the albums quite easily on Amazon Japan used. I believe they have a decently robust English site translation as well, and if you're choosing used entries which ar...

Re: Send in the clowns...

I...I'm not sure if your friend understands what that phrase is meant to be. If he's using it when there are things he doesn't like, it sounds almost like he thinks Ghaleon's dubbed line is cool enough to stand in as a threat against the things he doesn't like ("it's my glorious, festive entran...

Barring an actual text dump from the game files, you could do worse than to read a Gamefaqs transcription, I suppose: http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps/197808-lunar ... faqs/62187

Re: First impressions of Eternal Blue

What a joy to be playing MCD Eternal Blue for the first time! To have spent all one's life without having played one of the finest RPGs ever made, rather than "peaking early" by playing it at age 12... G1!! G1!! Right on about the TSS mysteriousness, as you've rightly noted and as Alun has...

Re: Spells in Lunar 1 and Lunar 2 versions

Ha! The more Fulari around here, the better, I say. * Haduken (Jean, EB). Temzin notes: “This one, 気功弾 kikoudan, is a pretty obvious nod to Chun-li's 気功拳 kikouken, or qigong (spirit energy).” I, er, had to look up what game this is from and verify that it’s the same series that Hadoken is in, becaus...

My pleasure! You all do so much to commemorate my favorite games of bygone times.

Oh sure, these only take a second to do! Happy to help with any that Kiz is too busy to tackle. Er, except for Nasch's weird German-sounding spell in SSS, though! Some mysteries will remain eternal. Edit: it was annoying me again, so I looked around and see that it must be Russian! The グローム is appar...

Re: Spells in Lunar 1 and Lunar 2 versions

Say, would you mind having a crack at approx translations for Nash's TSS spells? I originally had them pasted into the post but decided it made things too long. I also can't be 100% certain I transcribed them correctly, as I did it the hard way (squinting to pick out a radical and guessing a stroke...

Re: Spells in Lunar 1 and Lunar 2 versions

Alun, these/you are a treasure! Fantastic stuff. One of the stranger things about TSS is that they didn't even have MP costs listed for spells. I guess it did encourage us as little kids to do the equivalent of drawing our own dungeon maps in Phantasy Star II, meaning that we actually had calculator...

Ah, I come from a lot of places, but the land of kakaa-denka is one of them. (Women are indeed strong there, but I think that the winter winds are far more brutal.) Kiz, you're right about the strangeness of using kakaa in any event: on its own, it's an affectionate and polite Edo-era way to address...

Ah, you beat me to it, I was going to build on WD's second accidental character-creating goof-up to suggest that English lore must now insist that the great Kakar is the descendant of Fulari of Burg. Kakaa is a pretty bad mistake to make, even for a novice, and as Kiz noted, there's a big cue in the...

Re: EBC playthrough thread

So I find myself constructing a backstory for them, that maybe they argued about elitism vs egalitarianism, since many NPCs talk about Miria being welcoming to both magicians and non-magicians, e.g. opening the library to all, when Borgan was still a member of the Guild. Is he made out to be as poo...
