Saving the City
"Look at this town! Take a good look! This is what you've done? Does the word, 'duty' justify all of this? Does it!?"Fei proceeds to call Elly out on continuing to do things like this even though she hates it.
"What was I fighting for just now? ......You wanted to know? I don't really know. I know I was helping Bart and the others. But I still don't know what I should do. Maybe I'm just looking for a place to fit in. But I think it's better to fight than do nothing. I fighting helps you or your friends even a bit, then it's worthwhile. That's......not nothing. ......it's something."Fei then starts heading off to stop the Hecht. Elly warns him that Dominia is one of the Elements and thus more dangerous than a normal soldier, but that's not stopping Fei. I'm then given the chance to save and change my Gear setup. I give Fei two Beam Coats and Rico one, then save on a different file. Also, they've already started the boss music. I'm sent right into a fight against the Hecht. It has a humanoid body attached to its bridge, which just looks silly. Dominia arrogantly declares that she's not going to lose to us, but she only uses Aerods, which are beam-based. After equipping two Beam Coats, Fei is immune to beam attacks. After a while, she summons a Super Aerod, which can explode for significant damage to both of us; it seems to go through Beam Coats. Other than that, there's really nothing threatening in this fight, so I just beat Dominia up until she goes down, swearing revenge. She drops an HP Drive, which raises your HP when used and will be saved for someone who actually needs it. After the fight, Fei and rico start changing the ship's course by grabbing it with their Gears. Unfortunately, the ship's too heavy for two Gears to move on their own. Fortunately, Elly decides that how is a good time to help, and with three Gears we pull it off. The ship is then headed straight for the residential district, but there's nothing we can do because Fei and Rico's Gears are overheating. Elly keeps trying, saying that she'll reduce the damage this way. At the critical moment, Vierge overheats, and it starts falling. A bright light appears on the horizon, though, as Elly is saved st the last minute by... ...Grahf? There's definitely more to this than meets the eye. Elly wakes up to Weltall holding her damaged Gear. Fei calls her out for risking her life like that, then they head to a less damaged part of town. The next time we see the party, they're in hiding, waiting for Hammer to get some information to help them escape. He arrives just as they're wondering what happened to him, of course, and he's got good news about our escape. Apparently, we'll be able to escape using the Goliath, Kislev's new superweapon. Supposedly, it's big enough to destroy Bledavik on its own, and it's in an underground base north of the city. Coincidentally, that happens to be the same base Elly's unit nicked Weltall from. As such, she can help us infiltrate the building. That's where I'll leave off this time. Next time, we'll see about stealing the Goliath.
