Hello people, today, we're at Mount Hobs. The soldier at the entrance steps out of the way after saying to be careful. The beginning of the mountain is the same as in FFIV, but after that we enter the West Crossing, which definitely wasn't there before.
We reach the Summit, where we first met Yang all that time ago and find two collapsed monks...
Yang: Are you all right!?
Cecil: They're still breathing! We need healing here! Rosa!?
Rosa: R-right away!
The two monks are healed.
Rosa: Thank goodness their wounds were not serious...
Cecil: I would expect no less from any monk of Fabul.
Yang: What happened here?
Monk: Master...! Your wife. Queen Sheila, has...
Monk: We were on our way to Damcyan to inform you when we were ambushed...
Some generic evil noise happens.
Cecil: Yang! This presence...!
Yang: Can you still fight?
Monk: Of course!
Monk A and Monk B (Inventive names, right?) join, a blue bomb appears and we have to fight the Dad Bomb. Think Mom Bomb, but capable of posing a threat. And like Mom Bomb...
IT'S GONNA EXPLODE!
And so he does, and splits into three Gray Bombs and three Baloons, but with four physical attackers, they pose no threat.
Cecil: Our foes grow even stronger...
No, you grew weaker. How the hell did you lose 67 levels?
Yang: I will return to Fabul. Cecil, Rosa, you should head back to Damcyan...
Cecil: We're also worried about Sheila, Yang.
Rosa: And I may be able to help with my white magic.
Yang: I-I cannot thank you enough...
Cecil: Then let's be going!
We proceed into another new area, the East Vista. A few items we don't care about and a Save Point
and we're on to the East Trail, which leads down into the East Slope, which is back into familiar territory, and the way out. Rosa (re)learns Dispel on the way out.
Well, it's longer than in FFIV, I'll give them that. Next time, we'll finally figure out some of what's going on.
