A quick drawing of Shulk from Xenoblade Chronicles, another of my all-time favorite games. His knee whatsits are super weird.
I drop in on the Mor Ardain/Uraya summit because Mòrag has gotten news that Bana is planning an attack. We: gather clues; determine that Tirkin are attempting to poison the food; everyone ignores the giant, rattling crate; Rex shouts the word “Poison” really weird; and Bana manages to kill Niall in a last, desperate shot.
Not through any merit of his own, mind you… but because Niall is dumb.
I make my way to Frontier Village, the home of the Nopon, in pursuit of a way to the Bionis’ head. After Shulk and crew learn more about Melia and her reasons for being in Makna Forest, they get introduced to the year’s Legendary Heropon, Riki!
In this cutscene-heavy episode, Amalthus holds a summit between the leaders of Mor Ardain and Uraya to try and stave off open war. Afterwards, Nia and Mythra put the “fun” into Fan la Norne’s funeral.
Shulk and crew encounter the unconscious Melia. When Shulk heads off on his own to find a cure, he meets Alvis and just… falls in love. Then he gets beaten up by some mutant, telepathic birds and unlocks a new Monado Art, Purge.
I think this is about when I started really figuring out Chain Attacks… and still nearly lose to Jimmy because spike effects are the true enemy.
Afterwards, I head to Temperantia to stop Jin and get the last party member, Zeke, on the team. I give him Praxis and get him one of my favorite Blades, Adenine.
After helping to rebuild Colony 6 a little, I return to Satorl Marsh to climb up the Sororal Statues because the elevator doesn’t work and the Coming-of-Age ceremony was completely pointless. Entering Makna Forest afterwards, we get a brief introduction to our next party member, Melia.
Completely dominated by cutscenes, this episode provides: me giggling like an idiot at Sheba and her flying bathtub, a discussion on the effects of war and the ease to direct your anger at closer targets, Rex seeing similarities between Amalthus and Malos via a strange television effect, edgelord Jin trying to incite war between Mor Ardain and Uraya by commandeering a Titan weapon, and numerous discussions about the past.
I finished this finally after starting it a year ago. It’s taken this long because I stopped working on Zeke and Pandoria for months.
Regardless, I drew all the main characters of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. There’s a number of things that I could have done better… but nah.
After grabbing the other three plot items, I finish some side quests and kill some Uniques before doing the two Heart-to-Hearts at the refugee camp and taking a detour to Colony 6.
And, I’ll say it: I HATE how the game’s trying to force a “romance” between Sharla and Reyn. Hate that.
