The Plot and Stuff of the Game



  • I played and beat Cythera a few years ago, and I remember some of the basic stuff, but I can't quite remember how everything ties together.
    I know there was that weird alcohol; and that crystal with Omen's boss inside, who was trying to possess the king; and something with Magpie...if anyone else remembers how everything ties together, let me know please.

  • You'll find out all you need at (url="http://"http://www.macclassics.com/cythera/cythera.htm")Slayer's guide to Cythera(/url). It doesn't have a complete plot synopsis, but it does have walkthroughs for every mission and bios on almost every character, so it pretty much amounts to the same thing.
    Big Joe's summary of Cythera storyline:

    • Alaric uses magic to bring you to Cythera.

    • He's very sick, and he doesn't know why.

    • You figure out that House Comana is full of power-hungry crooks.

    • You find part of a green crystal.

    • You meet the Seldane, and they tell you that Comana is working with the Undine, the evil shapeshifters.

    • You find more of the crystal pieces and reassemble them.

    • You use alchemy to purge the crystal of the Undine spirit that took it over.

    • You use the purified crystal to cure Alaric.

    There are alot of side stories and things, but they're really just there to help you confirm that House Comana and the Undine are, in fact, the bad guys. Many side missions you don't even have to do to beat the game.

  • You can use HTML on chronicles, look up the tag to make a horizontal space for however many pixels you want.

    You can edit your chron once its submitted on the forbidden board - or ask Slayer for help.

    Would <t> have worked?

    Doesn't really matter, I used a suitable alternative

  • I believe the most elegant way to go about it would be to add the following line at the beginning of your chron:
    < style>span { margin-left: 0.25in; } </style>
    Then, if you surround each paragraph with <span>...</span> tags, it will automatically tab in the first line, while leaving the others at normal indentation. For poetry in particular, you might also find the <blockquote> tag useful.

  • Theo, I think you should try resubmitting, I don't see it in the pending chronicle section. Besides, if it for some reason does show up, a double entry is better than none. (your post count reflects you posted it, but its not there, and the search function doesn't see it either)

    Hopefully you saved your poem before submission. :/
