In the mountains head inside and pick up a HEAL ROD and head towards the top
right of the cave, and yes that is Relm following you, but the party does not
notice it. Then continue on and when you reach a room with three gold statues
in the middle head for them. It appears that the three statues created magic
as we know it and they are the source of all magic. It is said that the
espers made these images and arranged them in a special place as the statues
represent power beyond comprehension. It appears that the other magic flashes
are hidden beyond human reach, most likely beyond the gate. Afterwards head
for the left side of the room but before the party can do that they are
attacked by Ultros and he mentions Ziegfried, wait a minute. That bozo from
the Phantom Train? Then he will attack you as it seems that he has not
learned his lesson yet.
After the battle Relm is excited that she had helped out the party so much
and the party reluctantly lets her join. Then continue onto the next room and
there are three switches on the floor. Now take the bottom left switch and
then you will be dropped to the floor below. Later you will make your way
around until you find the espers, and it appears that they are out numbered.
Relm and Strago try to escape but are but off by the other espers. Yura then
tells the other espers to stop and Terra confronts him, but Strago senses
very high magical powers from Terra that it frightens him.
After the battle Ifrit
and Shiva have little to live.
Talk to the both of them and
they will do the same thing
Ramuh did with his power and
entrust it into the party. So
pick up the Magicite Shiva and
Ifrit and continue onto the
next room, the path Shiva was
blocking. In here its just a
long series of stairs, so make
your way to the top. In this
next room is the Magitek Res.
Facility, to the bottom left
of this room is a hidden passage
which leads to a BREAK BLADE.
After that continue onto the
next room there will be a robot
in your path. Talk to it and
a fight will ensue.
After the battle continue
through to the next room, here
go up top and hit the switch.
The espers doesn't have much
long to live as they will turn
themselves into Magicite. Then
Cid comes in and examines the
magicite and discovers something
new about the espers. Then the
magicite will break out and
entrust their power in the party.
It appears the Celes and Cid
know each other, and Cid thinks
that Celes came here to cause
Then afterwards Yura senses something in Terra and that he senses some
familiar powers in her. The espers had set up a rule that they were not
allowed through the gate and they had to fly through the gate to save the
other espers that had been kidnapped. The espers had lost control of their
powers when they had fled through the gate and leveled an entire city and
innocent lives were lost. Locke wants the espers to come with them to talk
peace to the Emperor in Thamasa. Later the scene shifts towards Thamasa and
General Leo and and Yura talk things out.
Yura apologizes for his actions, but he feels that an apology does not excuse
them from their actions, but General Leo thinks it is the humans who have to
apologize because they were so power hungry. Then when all is said and done,
the party and espers laugh about it, but as does Kefka. He comes in with
Magitek soldiers as they blast the party and General Leo's soldiers. It
appears that Kefka is acting under the Emperor's orders to bring back the
magicite remains to the Emperor. He then turns the espers into magicite as he
wants the town destroy as well. After Kefka sends one of his troops to knock
out General Leo, he awakens. Don't try to leave town though because Guardians
will block your path and if you do lose you will have to start over again.
Now talk to Kefka and a a fight will start.
After the battle a wave of
energy flood the town and the
scene shifts towards the Sealed
Gate as the espers come flying
through the portal as they try
to help their fallen friends
as they fly towards Thamasa.
He then completely harnesses
the power of the other espers
as even another esper who challenges
him but even he falls to Kefka's
powers. Then he captures the
rest of the espers' powers as
things don't look good. Later
when Kefka leaves the party
mourns over the death of General
Leo, all people seem to want
Then Interceptor comes in and is badly wounded as it appears that Shadow is
gone as well. The party is worried about Edgar and the others and Terra wish
she could say that they were safe, but then the other party members come by
and meet up with the party. It appears that they've been had, the Emperor was
a liar all along. Edgar had gotten to know a girl who had brought them tea
who later blurted out the entire plan. The other party is shocked to hear
that General Leo was killed as he was their finest soldier. The party then
decides to think up of a new strategy as Relm wishes to come along, but
Strago insists until Relm forcefully sways Strago's decision. The party then
heads for the airship to discuss their plans.
