  1. At the time of this posting the video is still uploading but here:
  2. A mate and i have just started playing this game, we kinda lost what to do but want to really give this game a chance. Anyway good way to start?
  3. I always find amazing how much culture some games carry with them, many hidden meanings and messages that sometimes get lost in translation. How about we discuss some culture references from the Phantasy Star series, or simply discuss if such things could be related? I'm not the best with words but I love to discover little things in the games i love :3 Starting with the first, origin of the names of the following weapons: Fire Scepter: Agni "A legendary magic cane containing the power of fire. It's special attack adds fire damage." Assumptions: With some research we can find easily on wiki that Agni was a Rigvedic deity of fire also a god of divine knowledge, who leads the man to gods. We could conclude that the name came from that origin. Agni is second only to Indra(oh what we have here? Familiar name right?) in power and importance attributed to him in Vedic mythology, third being Surya(another familiar name??). Sadly as I look at the weapon he carries that would've been a Staff, could've this been a mistake by SEGA? "Agni is represented as red and two-faced, suggesting both his destructive and beneficent qualities, and the black eyes and hair, three legs and seven arms." - Guess it was premeditated after all, the weapon's design matches nicely the description! Heres a picture: In buddism Agni is one of 12 devas, as guardian deities:(starting to see many familiar names!) Indra (Taishaku-ten), Agni (Ka-ten), Yama (Emma-ten), Nirrti (Rasetsu-ten), Vayu (Fu-ten), Ishana (Ishana-ten), Kubera (Tamon-ten), Varuna (Sui-ten) Brahma (Bon-ten), Prithvi (Chi-ten), Surya (Nit-ten), Chandra (Gat-ten). Storm Wand:Indra "Legendary magic cane containing the power of lightning. Adds lightning damage" Assumptions: The weapon stats as confirmed are a little bit better than Fire Scepter:Agni. Indra is the leader of Devas and the lord of Svargaloka or a level of heaven in Hinduism. His weapon is a thunderbolt known as vajra(cof cof "The Sigh of a God"). He is also represented as a god of war, constantly waging war against the opponents of gods. Indra is sometimes described as gold-bodied with golden jaw, nails, hair, beard.(it's a bit hard to visualize so lets research some more) In Rigveda one passage calls him both brown and yellow. Here's a picture/some of them he had green(?)skin, unsure if that influenced the design: Rudra(ohh another familiar name) would've been the one uniting the destructive aspects of nature, storm and fire, this one being associated with wind/storm. Ice Staff: Dagon "Legendary magic cane with the power of ice. Has the ability to freeze enemies" Assumptions: Dagon was originally an East Semitic Mesopotamian fertility God, who evolved into a major Northwest Semitic god. Dagon/Dagan is also called ti-lu ma-tim, "dew of the land" and Be-ka-na-ba, possibly "Lord of Canaan". "Jewish Bible commentator Rashi writes of a biblical tradition that the name Dāgôn is related to Hebrew dāg/dâg 'fish' and that Dagon was imagined in the shape of a fish " Here's a picture: Conclusions: Due to lack of wind element in game (it actually exists but.. it's nothing special), and I think in order to keep a logic of Fire, Ice and Thunder, Rudra was replaced with other deity that related to the water/Icy element. I'm still not totally pleased with the third deity maybe something else inspired Ice staff:Dagon's concept. What do you think? Is there some more to speculate about this 3 weapons?
  4. Hello Ultima! It's been a while I know, I know. Long story short, I finally got a charger for my tablet and the first thing I did was run to Pso2es. Well, after installing the patches and all that madness I am bombarded with this madness, Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! And me getting back on Ultima will happen as soon as I get paid and get my new laptop :3
