Those crazy Vale Elders like the idea of the world shrinking and our town being destroyed? What is wrong with them?
I bet it's because we have pointy ears and red eyes, right? That's discrimination. Those jerks.
We're going to steal the Elemental Stars tonight. This should be fun.
Well, crap. All we did was trigger a storm and everyone except Menardi and I were killed. We did manage to fish four Valeans out of the nearby river though.
We're going to take the Valeans back home to Prox by ship and... uh, I don't know yet. Menardi is in a really bad mood, she keeps burning things. Please don't burn our hostages...
Those adults seem really scared of us, they have barely said a word to us since we kidnapped them. I think the ship ride must be pretty rough for them, that sickly kid keeps throwing up. I'm not cleaning up his vomit...
Finally got back to Prox. Okay, when can we go out again?
Three years? IN THREE YEARS? And they want me to go and tell Menardi... I'm scared...
3 Years Later
Well, waiting three years made sense. The kid was a Venus Adept and he's old enough to come travelling with us. So, Menardi, Felix, Alex and I are heading to Vale for our next heist. Let's hope it goes well.
Felix is being emo as usual, he won't come out of the inn. I think those Valeans are scared of Menardi and I. I don't care. We're just going to scare an old man now. Where did Alex go anyway?
Great. We got away with only 3 Elemental Stars and picked up a rambling old man and Felix's little sister. We'd better get the Mars Star soon.
Does Alex ever stop swinging his hair like that? It's so irritating. Maybe Menardi will burn it off. That would be nice.
Oh great. Felix's sister (Jenna) is a Mars Adept too. I have a phobia of female Mars Adepts...
Woke up to Kraden lecturing at me about the dangers of Alchemy. What was he doing in my tent?
Tried securing my tent against trespassers. Alex warped in at the crack of dawn asking for hairgel. Ugh.
For a second there, I thought Jenna was going to burn Kraden when he decided to talk about clouds for no reason at all. It seemed like she stopped herself in time... too bad.
Menardi yelled at me when I ate the last of the fruit for breakfast. She sure is cranky this morning...
Snow everywhere. It almost feels like home. Menardi is being nice for once. She's not snapping at everyone.
Made a quick rest stop at Imil, but Alex didn't accompany us. What is it with people avoiding their hometowns?
Where did Alex go? We'll just have to wait for him to come back. What a waste of time... Kraden is suggesting we have fun in the snow. Am ignoring him. Felix and Jenna don't seem so interested either. Menardi... she looks homicidal...
Finally, Alex came back. Wouldn't say where he went. We can finally set off to the Mercury Lighthouse.
Almost at the aerie... I just wish Kraden wouldn't keep stopping and gushing over every single little thing he sees.
Good news: Mercury Lighthouse lit. Bad news: Got ass handed to self by four brats and had to be saved by Alex. I will never live this down...
Menardi pushed some trees over. I'm not sure why she did that... or why she didn't just burn them.
Had to swim through a river. Nobody was manning that dratted bridge. Who even plants a tree next to a bridge?
Almost got lost passing through the Mogall Forest. At least some of the group had the sense to hold hands instead of wandering off.
Stopped for rest at Xian. Those people certainly speak funny.
Alex disappeared again. Great.
There's some weird girl living here who has voices in her head apparently. How strange.
Where the heck is Alex? Menardi is on verge of going on an insane rampage.
Alex mysteriously reappeared, claiming that he was merely scouting out the area ahead of us. Curse him and his warping powers.
Went to Altin for a change of scenery. It's flooded with monster spit. Gross.
Kraden wants us to investigate the mystery behind the spit. Told him to go shut his trap.
There are children swimming in the spit? Actually, now that I think about it, it looks like water... but still, ew.
This time wasting is getting ridiculous. Why aren't we moving on? Are they trying to see how much more flooded this town can get?
Now Kraden is swimming. Ew. I did not need to see that.
We're finally getting a move on and going through Altin Crossing. It's about time. Menardi blasted at the cliffs during mid-rant and made some boulders block the road. She sure is scary.
This desert is supposed to be hot? I have no idea what everyone is talking about. Menardi and I sure can't feel it.
Alex, Felix, Jenna and Kraden look all sweaty. Why don't they just change into something cooler then?
Finally out of desert. We must go to Kalay so that certain non-Proxians can bathe... frankly, they stink.
Looks like we'll have to take a ship from the Kalay dock because the road is blocked. It wasn't us this time...
Ship isn't setting sail for a while. Menardi and Jenna went off shopping. Apparently Kalay has some nice clothes shops?
If I hear Felix sigh one more time, I swear I'm going to snap. He's being randomly emo again...
Kraden's trying to lecture me again. WHY ME?
When is that ship ever going to set sail?
Got bored, snooped through Alex's stuff. Found a bottle of blue hairdye. Am very suspicious, but would rather not ask since Alex is a Mercury Adept.
Forgot to mention, there were a make-up kit and some girly accessories in there too. Somehow I don't think he pinched them off Jenna or Menardi...
Ship is leaving tomorrow. Why didn't we just go and blast away the blockage with our Psynergy? Forget it, I don't want to know.
People on ship keep staring at us. It's kind of creepy.
No. I do not want to look at the dolphins, Kraden. Leave me alone.
Ship finally reached Tolbi docks. It's about time.
Some thing called Colosso is coming up in Tolbi. It sounds interesting. Too bad we can't participate.
I could totally win, you know.
Apparently Tolbi's lord is a dirty pedophile who abducted a 14 year old girl. Good grief.
Kraden corrected me. He actually kidnapped her to force people to build a lighthouse. What the heck?
Since we aren't going anywhere fast, I might go and see this girl. Apparently she's pretty special.
I swear that Sheba girl did something weird to my mind. Told Menardi. We now believe she's a Jupiter Adept. We need one.
Instead of abducting her, we're just leaving Tolbi and heading on to the next lighthouse? What the heck?
Going to Gondowan Crossing. Kraden seems upset at leaving Tolbi. Too bad we can't just leave him there.
Now at a super boring town named Suhalla. Alex vanished again.
This town is so small and boring...
I miss Tolbi. At least it was fun...
Menardi ranted at me ;_; I didn't tell Alex to just vanish...
Apparently there are freaky tornados in the desert that carry people back to Suhalla. Great, more weirdness.
Why couldn't we have got a normal Mercury Adept who doesn't randomly disappear on us?
Alex finally came back. Menardi seemed to be struggling not to blow him up.
Aw, crap. Felix came down with the flu somehow.
Jenna and Kraden are rushing around tending to Felix while Menardi and I try not to burn every thing in sight. Alex... is Alex.
Couldn't Alex heal the flu? Must ask him.
Asked Alex to try it. Flu gone. Why didn't he do it sooner?!
I think Alex is enjoying wasting our time. Tried to get into desert, got carried away by giant tornado.
How are we supposed to get past these giant tornados?
Alex made the tornados wet and huge lizards tried to kill us. At least we're making progress.
Picked up Sheba, who was being escorted by soldiers. Guess they went back to Suhalla. That sure was convenient.
Just camping before we move on. Reflecting on this journey... it's kind of been a nightmare. Menardi was more insane than usual, Kraden never shut up, Felix kept being emo, Jenna kept screaming at Alex when he pissed her off and Alex... well, he's just weird. And a bit creepy.
Some rude people at the Suhalla Gate tried to stop us from passing through because we didn't have papers. Menardi and I beat them up.
Reached Venus Lighthouse and burned even people. I think Menardi may have killed some. Must tell her to control her temper.
Eh? The entrance is the exit? What a waste of time.
Sheba thinks the real entrance is beneath Babi Lighthouse. She's useful for something then...
People in Lalivero were surprised to see us dragging Sheba along. Ignored them until we went to Babi Lighthouse and burned even more people.
Alex warped us past strange door that wouldn't open. How the heck was it supposed to open anyway?
We're really in the Venus Lighthouse, it seems. Made Felix, Jenna and Kraden go back and head to ship. No clue where Alex went.
Why exactly is Sheba coming with us again? I forgot.
We gave Felix the Jupiter Star yet took the Jupiter Adept with us. Pointed this logic flaw out to Menardi and she burned me. Ow.
Are we there yet?
Finally at the aerie. Menardi and I feel like just standing and talking instead of lighting it for some reason. I have a strange feeling that... hmm, it's nothing. I doubt we're going to die here. That would really suck, you know?
