Recap / The Stolen Century Chapter Seven

Go To

"To understand this next part, I need you to imagine the apocalypse. Imagine it happens... tomorrow. And that everyone you ever knew, every place you've ever been, every performer whose work you admired, every band who’s ever written a song that meant something to you- all of it was gone. And that you survived. Imagine that feeling of loss, imagine that guilt, the pressure it would put on you. How you would change beneath that pressure. Now imagine that apocalypse occurring annually, a hundred times over. What would you do to stop it? What would you do to protect the ones you loved, the ones who also felt that terrible weight? That is the reality of our heroes. That is what will lead them down the path to their destinies. Further from home, away from each other, into... The Adventure Zone."

Our heroes' long, forgotten journey comes to an end.

Tropes

  • Brainwashing for the Greater Good: Lucretia can't bear how callous and uncaring her friends have become as the Relics they created tear the world apart.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: Most of the IPRE crew are suffering from varying degrees of this after the brutal 100 years they've endured. Taako in particular mentions that he no longer sees the point of caring about people outside of his 6 crew members at all.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Lucretia "edits" all their memories (except hers) by feeding a record of the IPRE's century-long mission to Fisher, the Voidfish.
  • Forgot the Call: After Lucretia erases most of their memories, she guides Merle, Taako, and Magnus to the places she thought would make them happiest while living a (comparatively) normal life. It worked, for nearly ten years.

  • Wham Line: Several emotional ones.
    Griffin: That was the last conversation you ever had with your sister.
    Taako: ... Who?
