Quest for the Throne - King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow - Session 1

Alexander...I feel so alone...I don't know what to do...

Alexander...I wish you were here...

After their captivity, Alexander was smitten with Cassima, princess of the Land of the Green Isles, a land beyond the boundaries of the world known to Daventry. Lovesick, he receives a vision of Cassima through the magic mirror, where he sees the stars, which he can use to navigate there. He sets sail as soon as possible.

But before he could reach his destination, his ship was beset by a brutal storm. Alexander awakes on the shores of an unknown land, his ship wrecked, its crew missing. Where has he landed? How far yet is Cassima? So his quest begins...

While we plan to start this tonight, we might be starting it a little late, as Brendan and Mabry won't be able to be here on time. The stream still starts at 9pm ET, I'm just not sure what we'll be playing first.

Thursday Throne - Uh...Something

Thursday Throne tonight at 9pm ET! I beat Secret of Evermore last time, and the ideas I'd tried to prepare aren't really panning out, so...I'll be playing something on the stream, just not sure what yet.

Thursday Throne - Secret of Evermore - Session 6

Last time in Secret of Evermore, with the help of Tinker, we made it back to Omnitopia, the space station encircling the world. Now, we have but to find Professor Ruffleburg, and all our questions will be answered...hopefully.

Catch our further adventures tonight at 9pm ET!

Tales of Phantasia - Session 2

Truly, if there is evil in this world, it lies within the heart of mankind.

Cless is the son of renowned swordsman Miguel. He possesses a pendant given to him by his father for his 15th birthday. One day, he goes hunting with his friend Chester. While out in the forest, they hear their village's emergency bell ring...and return home to utter devastation. The village is a shambles, and no one is left alive. Cless flees to seek safety with his uncle in the nearby city, while Chester stays behind to bury the dead.

But even the city offers no protection for Cless. In the dark of night, he's taken away by black-armored knights, stripped of his possessions, and thrown in a dungeon. With the help of a mysterious benefactor, he escapes, breaks out a young girl he finds there, and they fight their way out through the sewer thick with monsters.

Finally making their way into the wilderness, they're ambushed by a monster. Cless shoves Mint out of the way, and takes the full force of the monster's attack. He collapses, and the monster wanders off. Mint carries him the rest of the way to safety.

They're found by Chester, and brought to the house of Tornix, who tells them that, many years ago, he had been close friends with all of their parents, that the lost pendant is very important, and that it's terrible that it's fallen into the hands of the black-clad knights. He departs to set things right, but forbids them from helping.

Shortly after, the newly orphaned adventurers are met by Master Tristan, Miguel's old friend and mentor, who explains the true weight of the lost pendant.

A scant twelve years ago, Miguel, Tornix, and Mint's mother, Meryl, had sealed the evil sorcerer Dhaos in two pendants. The seal would remain intact as long as the two pendants remained separated. With Cless' pendant lost, though, Dhaos' return was imminent.

Tristan encouraged them to follow Tornix to the mausoleum where the sealing had taken place.

And wow, for such a short span of game, that's an awfully long explanation. This game packs a lot of plot into a small space.

Last time I needed a filler week, it was supposed to have been Final Fantasy II. Sadly, though, my save file just vanished. So I played this instead. And that much happened.

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we continue Tales of Phantasia!

Thursday Throne - Secret of Evermore - Session 4

Tonight at 9pm ET, Secret of Evermore continues on Thursday Throne!

Last time, we recovered the Diamond Eyes, but were duped into handing them over to Horace's evil twin, who used them to activate the Sacred Dog statue, revealing an evil robot hidden inside. Defeating the robot, however, left its unstable core behind. Tiny to the rescue! He flung the core far away, and it landed and exploded north of Horace's camp, draining the river nearby and opening a cave leading to parts unknown. Tonight, we explore that cave!

Thursday Throne - Secret of Evermore - Session 3

Okay, so it is still a holiday that I'm doing this on — happy new year, by the way — but this seems as good a time as any to announce that, either starting now or in the very near future, I'll be streaming regularly on Thursdays as well!

Last time on Secret of Evermore, we defeated the champion gladiator Vigor the Indestructible before thousands of spectators. Now, we seek the Diamond Eyes of the Sacred Dog Statue in the Hall of Collosia and the Pyramid.

Tune in tonight at 9pm ET as I continue this classic adventure-RPG!
