Eh? It was Luc who got out of being raised as a Harmonian bishop. Fuck if I know which one dodged the bullet there; Luc might have gone completely fucking nuts but at least he's not, like, on Team Genocide. But yeah Luc and Sarah's ~souls~ go float over to say hi to Leknaat. Really the difference between them is mainly that Sasarai'd stab you in the back; Luc'd stab you in the front. But Sasarai is way more charismatic about it. Fucking Harmonia.
I reaaaaaally hope Lazlo eventually got his goddamn beach house. I mean, he definitely did move back to the deserted island, and the damn thing's either Lazlo's Island or Chiepoo's Island depending who you ask, and he seemed to really want a goddamn beach house. His beach house has a bad ending devoted to it and everything. Dude saved the world and with the worst set of stars of destiny ever. He deserves that beach house.
Continuing from III would be great particularly since the Chris ending (I've read the script for Hugo fc, but I played Chris fc because Hugo is boring and I think I may cry if I end up picking Geddoe fc, which I'll do whenever I'm less burnt out on III: I have a save right before picking your fc) makes it fairly clear that a Zexen/Grassland peace treaty isn't ... actually that likely .... Chris and Lucia are both kind of meh about the idea. And the beautiful thing about III is that there is all of this political manoeuvring going on, and does it get resolved? No. All three armies decide they're going to get along for five minutes to go kill four people. So it's like ... and then what.
Somehow I suspect the 'then what' involves shit hitting the fan given that Harmonia now knows who has True Fire, Lightning, and Water, and True Wind is now unclaimed, and Sasarai now knows the only reason he exists is so Hikusaak has somewhere convenient to keep True Earth. So Sasarai's possibly redeemable, but I kind of doubt he wouldn't first report to Hikusaak (not least because if he doesn't, someone else will, and even if Sasarai sort of likes them a little, there is no way he's not politically savvy enough to make sure he's not the one under the bus) so. Bets on how long it'd take for the shit to hit the fan? It seems to take Harmonia a bit to start acting on their need to RECLAIM TRUE RUNES cough Higheast Rebellion cough cough everything Nash does every cough, but it's not as though Chris or Hugo or Geddoe are going anywhere. 8) And Geddoe's ending specifically states that it's Sasarai's fault he rejoined the Southern Frontier Defence Force. Bets that that's so Sasarai knows where to send his spies?
Le Buque might rebel, but iirc they're probably going to get upgraded to second class citizens unless Sasarai changes his mind or gets bored or never had any intention on doing anything in the first place. So it'd take a while for them to figure out nothing's going to change (because of course nobody's going to tell them they have a cheesecake's chance in Georg's inventory), and Franz is kind of. completely and utterly optimistic. And now vaguely respected, thanks to Geddoe punching people in the face. Oh, and let's not forget Le Buque's odds if Sasarai wandered over to put down a rebellion. Yeah they're going to have GREAT odds against the best earth mage in the world. One little rockslide and bye bye, Le Buque. Not even fire-breathing cicadas will save you. Particularly not if Sasarai just smoothed out the cliff face.
Also I don't get the impression the rest of the world gives a rat's ass about what happens to people in Harmonia. Harmonia is like the friendly smiling rabid weasel of the Suikoden world. All's well as long as Harmonia's not paying attention to you, and Harmonia's not going to pay attention to you unless you start paying attention to it. Or if you have a true rune. But how many people does that apply to, really? And given Annalee's terror in gaiden 1 at realising Nash is Harmonian (and given that he's blond, probably a first class citizen) and him recognising her accent, I sort of doubt Harmonian ex-pats want wherever they move to have anything to do with Harmonia, either. Harmonia'd probably have to, like, start sacrificing entire cities to the Beast Rune or something for anyone to give a shit. Wait, a Harmonian territory did that and Matilda and Tinto still didn't care.
... It's really a pity Luc failed to blow the damn place up.
I was referring to the card game itself, but :B Youtube's not working for me right now, unfortunately. What's the gba version's music like?
