There exists an ancient prophecy…
"The beast of despair feeds on man and destroys hope.
The unleashed frenzy of death yearns for the light of life.
The advancing inferno scorches the throne’s surroundings.
In the Cauldron that breathes despair, the blood of the ancients boils.
When Leventhan, last of the dragons, devours the stone of blood,
the path shall be closed and void will cover the world."
And so begins the tale of five warriors…
Odin sphere was an Action role playing game that was released in europe in 2008 published by Square enix over here this is in actuality an vanillaware game published by Atlus in japan and America. I have fond and strong memories of this game. almost as strong as Dark cloud and Dark chronicle so It made sense to lets play it. The version of the game I am playing for this thread is Odin Sphere Leifthrasir A complete Remake released in 2016.
The game follows Five characters on five interconnected stories which tells the final days of the continent of Erion and those who live on it.The story is told from the perspective of a young girl named Alice reading a series of books in her attic, with five initial storylines or “books” playing out between the five main characters and overlapping at multiple points.
Now on to some questions you may be having
Hal you wonderful scotsman you. wearn’t you lping Final Fantasy 7 remake?
Yes I was and it is all recorded and just needing my fellow cohort kaz to record commentary for it. the thing is a much better and prolific lper is currently in the midst of recording a damn fine lp of it (here) I will be resuming it after this lp so don’t worry it ain’t dead just resting.
How will you be handling this?
Each chapter of each book will get a video on its own. On a bet by my fellow co comm Kazan I am keeping each episode to 30 minutes. In order to do this some battles will be excised. All mid bosses, main bosses and plot points will be kept in the video though. Also this is now being edited on a new editing software so pardon any messups early on as i get a hang of it
What about the encyclopedia?
This game has a pretty big encylopedia of erionian history. It will show up in videos as it unlocks but i will also post it as jpegs as well so i guess this could technically count as a screenshot hybrid lp? maybe?
Who will be joining me?
As usual Kazan will be my constant co pilot. Mystery gril will also be joining when she can and I hope to get a few of my other friends involved in this time permitting since they are busy people
so join us tomorrow as we begin the journey to the end with our first hero Gwendolyn
