It is time to fight off the Solarian attack on Shevat! Luckily the entire party has somehow made it up to the top of Babel Tower, along with their giant robots and the Yggdrasil (?!). Did Fei and company carry that up with them? It would explain why they kept falling so much! Despite all this, only one party member can defend a gate generator each.
Our heroes gather 'round the old giant angel statue to defend them some gate generators. The enemies here are just your garden variety giant robots and foot soldiers, nothing special, so our heroes defeat them without much trouble. Poor planning, Solaris! Of course, if Shevat has no defenses whatsoever then Solaris could have just thrown rocks at the generators and probably won. Maybe next time.
Achtzhen totally tears through Shevat's pussy robots! None of this was planned well at all.
The Anti-Gear Psycho Jammer apparently works by sending a shock through a giant robot's electrical system and shutting it down. But it's okay! It only works long enough for the enemy to kill you! And as it happens Maria's giant robot has, um, an Anti-Anti-Gear Psycho Jammer shield, so her robot still works.
Oh, everyone, are you ready for this? You are not ready for this. Okay, try to imagine the stupidest thing the game could do right now. Just off the top of your head.
Whooooaaa, no, not that stupid, scale back. Yikes.
Yes, Chu-chu has a magical girl transformation. She does not transform into a magical girl, however. She's transforms into NIGHTMARE FUEL.
She grows something like five stories and proceeds to battle with Achtzhen! But while she may well be thirty feet tall, she is in no sense a giant robot, and Achtzhen is not amused.
Achtzhen kicks Chu-chu's ass. Everyone is happy! Except that this means everyone is still going to die. Well, it's a small price.
Midori is Citan's daughter. She is telepathic. No, the game isn't going to explain! What do you think this is, a Joan D. Vinge novel?
Whatever, Maria, pick one and let's go! She runs down to the giant robot dock and gets on Seibzhen's head, where it is of course much safer than in the cockpit with its seatbelts and control panels.
It's a good thing this all takes place way the hell up in the sky, where the thinner oxygen and lack of comm equipment on Seibzhen's head will prevent the audience from having to sit through a boring father-daughter pre-deathmatch chat. Ha ha! That was a joke.
Seibzhen apparently does not think this conversation is going by fast enough and takes a battle stance. Well, no wonder Maria doesn't have to be in the cockpit. Maybe she should have just stayed and had cocoa with the queen and Jesiah and let Seibzhen go take care of this by itself. Achtzhen is alarmed, and they fight for a while!
Nikolai gives her some line about how he has wirelessly transferred his soul into Seibzhen or something, but whatever, these two are incredibly boring. Maria whines some more about how she does not want to destroy this horrible giant robot, so Seibzhen shoots it itself. So both robots are Nikolai? Okay, fine.
It would seem that the party got so sidetracked with various family dramas that they completely forgot that they left that plot thread totally hanging! Shakahn is still after the treasure of the Fatima family! Which, Zephyr confims, is Roni's Omnigear. The party can have it if they can beat the bad guys to it, but if Shakahn gets it they are basically screwed.
Meanwhile, one of the three Wiseman of
Oh, because it belongs to a dead nun. The giant battle robot. Well, that must make Mass exciting.
This game has not been sufficiently vague or confusing for at least an hour.
Gaspar proceeds to perform gene therapy on the party, for... some reason. And then the chu-chus have an orgy. ...the less said about this, the better.
