Sea of Time
Hello everybody! Today, we can finally head for Lemuria. But first, a few class changes. Felix and Jenna both become Venus/Mars, making them both Barbarians, and Sheba and Piers both become Jupiter/Mercury, making them both Savants.

We head for the Sea of Time, the huge fog in the middle of the Eastern Sea. But as soon as we try to go in, the currents throw us back out. We ask Piers how to get through, but he's not exactly sure where it is. Jenna's not sure he's a Lemurian any more.

Piers: Yes, I'm from Lemuria... I've never had to get back into it before! And besides, the tidal wave carried me out of Lemuria. I didn't come through here.

Crap. How are we gonna get through here? Well, the answer is Yallam. Some children are playing in the eastern area, near some markings that look kinda like the Sea of Time. They offer to teach us Yepp's three songs. Let's give it a try.

If you want to go to the stars, if you want to go to the stars.

Go north past the twins, passing to swirls, run desail twice 'round the trunk.

Haste without waste, and head to the east, past three to the north.

Then, run 'round thrice and wait for the waves. When they stop run north and go to the stars.

If you race full of folly and take the wrong way, you'll find yourself a watery grave.

If you want to go to the moon, if you want to go to the moon.

Face west from the stars and run straight past three twirls, then circle 'round twice.

Haste without waste, and head to the south, then one swirl west.

There, run 'round thrice and wait for the waves. When they stop, run south and head for the moon.

If you race full of folly and take the wrong way, you'll find yourself a watery grave.

If you want to go to the sun, if you want to go to the sun.

Face south from the moon and run straight through two swirls, then circle 'round twice.

Haste without waste, and head to the west, then six to the north.

There, run 'round thrice and wait for the waves. When they stop, run north and go for the sun.

If you race full of folly and take the wrong way, you'll find yourself a watery grave.

Ignoring the fact that those are pretty crap songs, they sound like instructions. Let's try them at the Sea of Time.

So, north two whirlpools, then circle around the volcano twice. Doing it right cleared away the current that took us out earlier! All right, we can get to Lemuria!

A bit further, and we reach a star shaped rock. That's the stars, then.

Then a moon shaped rock. All that's left is the sun.

So, we finish the instructions and reach another area. We head in, and a whirlpool appears, which Poseidon comes out of!

Poseidon hits hard. Very hard. As in 'utterly annihilate you with Mercury damage' hard. He gets two attacks a turn, and can counter attack you. Worst thing though is, he's invincible. That's why we have the Trident of Ankohl. Using that dispels his barrier and we can fight him. He's weak to Mars, which is why we have two Barbarians; it lets us use two Planet Divers a turn. Basically, Piers spams the trident (deals 200 damage a turn, even after the forcefield is removed), Felix and Jenna use Planet Diver (200 more damage each) and Sheba heals. With 4905 HP, it still takes a while.

After we're done, a bunch of pillars rise up, an Poseidon sinks back into the sea. We head north, where the fog is gone and we can see Lemuria! Next time, we head in, and if I've done it right, we'll see the pay off for Felix being a lying dick all this time!

I've started the next update, but due to me not having much time on my hands, it won't be finished today. As it's the end of the Eastern Sea, it'll probably be big.
