I had to run through the first bit real fast on a secondary file because my limited storage space meant I lost some footage.
Regardless, I head into Torigoth and just get BARRAGED by by tons and tons of exposition and cutscenes. I: lose Nia to the Ardainians after they deafen me with their screaming; meet Brighid, the “Jewel of Mor Ardain” and one of the most powerful Blades around; meet Tora; meet the best character, Mòrag Ladair; wander around Torigoth with Tora in tow; and marvel at the really stupid dialogue.
Wooo, that’s a whole lot in a very small amount of time. I can’t say that was designed particularly well.
