Taking a detour from the Praetorium, I finally get to progress on Electra’s Blade mission before starting on Azami’s, the creepy marionette sociopath. I also hire an accountant for Garfont and give Sheba half of my money.
Continuing on with the story, I begin the trek across Satorl Marsh, land of pretty nights filled with extremely high-leveled enemies and trashy days filled with angry things. And I get beaten up by some Uniques a couple of times.
After finishing chatting with the Deku Tree, I turn to and complete the Korok Trials for some quick orbs, though I do have to do one twice because a random wolf attacks the Korok part way through. Afterwards, I go to the top of a mountain and find a giant sword.
On the way to the Ysheva Harbor port to head to the Indoline Praetorium, our merry band of idiots and Mòrag and Brighid encounter Zeke again, who is revealed to be the crown prince of Tantal and also distressingly aroused by recognition.
Before heading onto the next part of the story, I head back to Colony 9 and the refugee camp to finish up some sidequests. I pick up some new ones in Colony 9 from just the worst people and then attempt to fight the giant spider from when I picked up the Giant’s Mirror.
Fun fact: it ends poorly.
After attempting to unknowingly enter the Lost Woods from Makar Island, that strange island with just a single tree at the center and nothing but bones besides, I finish revealing the map before entering the Woods properly.
Tired and delirious, I go about Uraya and Mor Ardain while finishing up some quests and field skills.
