RE: Cythera X? How about Cythera II
Gandreas never even finished Cythera 1 (note all the plotholes and glitches), so by that notion I think a Cythera 2 made by him is sadly completely out of the question.
Actually I believe after looking over the ending speech by Omen again I noticed that it seemed to forshadow the return of the undine. In fact I remember seeing a little submessage on the bottom of the talk screen stating 'you have a feeling you two will meet again' or something along the lines of that. That and a few other statements in the speech that made me believe that they purposely left a door open to a sequel.
"Our agents are everywhere, appearing as you do, and there is no way for you to know who is true and who is false
Well after seeing this quote it got my mind rolling on the possible Undines in Cythera (Excluding Pelagon, Omen, and Tavara) I have managed to actually zone it down to a few people who are actually Undine. Atreus, the gem trader down in Kosha is the most obvious one, if you examine Tavara's diamond ring it will say 742 - Will to Union, then if you wait for Atreus to fall asleep and look in his desk he will have a plain gold ring saying 742 - Will to Union.
I had also remember reading on the boards that Nothing, the guy in the upper lef hand corner of every map, was a possible Undine, however there is no physical evidence of this. So far I think he is just that, Nothing, a template or something but otherwise of no importance.
Joppa, or as I remember him Timon's sister's crazy assistant. They've been exploring the ruins unharmed for who knows when and then when you arrive Larisa is packing up and heading back to Kosha. My personal theory is that Joppa killed Larisa and the guard and then took the guard's form(why else would he stay there). Why you ask? To make sure you took the Crolna, notice how Omen didn't speak to you when you took the crystal.
The three brother's of the House of Comana, may or may not be Undine, but at least they are aware of them. When you are completeing find Opheltius's Murder Weapon, Darius (one of the three brothers) both accuses Halos and defends Pelagon.
Any other thoughts?
Life of a Golem In Cademia
The fallowing happens during the beginning of the golem hunters, but not to beginning. In a little secret passage under Cadamia a lab guarded by a golem. The following diary is found in one of the old musty books from the bookshelf. It actually works out quite well in terms of explaining the fur coat.
Me master has just taught me how to right. He is quite pleased about my progress. He says I much smarter then his other Golem is.
My master found my notes from yesterday. He was so ashamed that he had to teach me some grammer. The other golem has gone out and killed a unicorn and brought it back to the room. Now it smells.
IDK something about a bunch of golem hunters going and killing other golems because they are causing problems. So he's building a bunch of gates. He say we going to be all right.
Hey Master! what's this staff do?
Other golem going out to bury master. Not wanting anyone to see him I tore off the skin of the unicorn and other golem go out to bury him. It has been an hour and I am bored, other golem hasn't come back yet. I begin to worry about his safety. I hear there are rats in the sewers, but I don't think rocks can be poisoned. Hey look a lyre! I don't thing anyone will mind if I play it
P N G
What was that?
Okay other golem isn't coming back. I don't really know where he went. Maybe the Golem hunters got him. Ah well nappy nap time
(Several Years Pass)
Hey someone openned the gate! It must be my master! Or other Golem! I am running out to give them a big golem hug right now! I'm coming other golem!
And the rest... well I'm pretty sure we all know what happened next
RE: mushrom steak
I to remember getting a mushroom steak. Maybe you are given it after a certain number of days (Cythera days that is) and at a random time during the divide food process. Or maybe it's just Aethon's secret stash that he pulled out of his shoe hoping that no one would notice
Cythera X? How about Cythera II
Cythera is probably one of my most favorite games of all time. Not many RPG's allow you to do in depth stuff like make butter or bake bread. Even if it's graphics aren't up to spec of current gaming technology, Cythera will always have a place in my heart. Now porting Cythera to OSX may give a small life boost to Cythera, but it doesn't make the game any more attractive then Aperion X compared to Aperion. And it wouldn't solve it's problems unless the devs relooked at the files. Even then Cythera would still have a lot of problems, so why not make a new Cythera, bigger, better, and more in depth then the OS 9 version. Some ideas I have (excluding the obvious like 'fix fetch spell')
- Boats and other lands
- Different kinds of ruffians (Brigands, bandits, warlords etc etc)
- More characters that can join maybe mercenaries that you can hire for a small price, but they aren't that powerful and don't have any noteworthy skills, and there you go.
- Guards that will attack Ruffians (Rather disappointed that they didn't and got my character carved like a thanksgiving turkey once)
- Allow player to mine (Use pick ax on rock > X% chance of finding rare, uncommon, common gems, or nothing at all > sell to merchant on surface)
- Magic runes in ancient cities (Put a use to remove rune spell)
- Teach player to farm (Buy seeds > use hoe on ground (creates farmland) > wait specific amount of time > harvest)
- Wandering merchants and townsfolk (Beggars in Cademia)
Other suggestions are welcome, maybe if this thing gets enough posts Ambrosia will consider it :cool:
