Questions about The End of Book 2.

Postby pp040570 » Wed Aug 18, 2010 7:44 am

While I finish the Arcadia Boss, the ending show a chain of story.
But I am not quite understand the ending.
1. Why Hikaru and Johan say that they are used by kosseimaru??
Finally Arcadia's defeat brings the free and release of all the Arcadians.
2. But why Kosseimaru and Kanna also disappear??
3. Kossimaru says he is free?? I do't understand.
4. Kanna syas she needs to wake up??I don't understand..
5. so what is the aim of Kosseimaru?? why KSM and Kanna disappear??
6. Also Sarah says that all the things are only her dream?? This is weird... Why??

Also, when I start to play book 3, the whole world seems not focusing on Arcadia anymore.
It's like not related to book1 and 2 anymore...
Also I see some 3-kingdom warriors?? Zhang Liao??Hefei Castle??
It's so strange... most of the heroes seem disappear...
It gives me the feel that I am playing a new story...

Spoilers (obviously)

The souls of Kosseimaru, Kanna and all the other Arcadians were summoned to Arcadia by Queen Arcadia. Now that Queen Arcadia is gone, there's nothing holding them there so they're all free to return to their real lives. To them, what happened in Arcadia will be nothing but a dream. Kosseimaru's goal has always been that: freeing himself from Arcadia. Hikaru and Johan hoped that defeating Queen Arcadia would release them too, but since they were brought there by other means, that turned out not to be the case. Kosseimaru probably knew this, but never bothered to inform them, hence their "Kosseimaru used us!" comments.

With Queen Arcadia and her stolen souls gone, all that's left of Arcadia now is its technology, which has been claimed by the Nerubians as part of their deal with Kosseimaru. Since they didn't want to get involved with the war between Corona and Artesia, Hikaru and Johan decided to live up to the campaign name and wandered to the Jin Empire to put some distance between them and Corona.

Book 3 is the start of the second part of the campaign, and mostly sets up things for Books 5 and 6.

Sarah's comments about her dream and all the Romance of the Three Kingdoms stuff in the Jin Empire is explained later.

I really miss them and do not want them to disappear forever in that way.

Kanna and Shion come back later, although how permanent that is depends on what you do.

If Kanna said she'd be waking up, it's contradictory (I don't remember her saying that, I'd have to replay it).

{SPOILERS}
Kanna, Shion, and Mizuki appear because, when their souls were released, Shizuka captured them. To be able to remain in Sorceria, they needed some sort of object to be... «attached» to. Mizuki, for example, disappears permanently after handling the Tether Rifle.
It might have something to do with it, but I'm not sure what the deal with Kanna's Necklace is anymore. Why exactly these characters remain behind, however, while others, such as Ayame and Chika, disappear, is explained in Book 5.

It's not really explained anywhere, but the main reason why Shizuka uses talismans and such instead of straight-up magic is she just plain can't use magic in reality, so the closer she gets to her 'true' power the less capable she is of using magic. That's why by the time you get to Book 6 she (by default at least) has no outright spells anymore and relies on objects like the necklace and the rifle (not to mention her threads get a lot less fantastic). This is as opposed to Hikaru who gets more fantastic spells the further into the story he gets (unfortunately I couldn't think of a way to make his threads more fantastic and not look silly).
