This is Broken Forum, I never had any hope for the good ending in the first place.
Did AM make him look so smug?
Ooh, it's been a while since I've read an LP of this game (and even longer since I read the short story). It's pretty bleak, but the gifs help (so far, anyway).
I had forgotten that Ellen was so sassy though.
Ok! Got a bit of time before the club, so let's push this trainwreck even further down the tracks!
Maybe it's giant pentacle right above the doorway as we walked in...
Well, it still might be useful... I'll grab it, just in case.
Don't worry, I doubt you'll have to find out... For now...
I bet that bastard's up to something...
Let's see if the maid is of any use.
No one finds this odd? Really?
I feel so dirty.... @_@
OH I DON'T REMEMBER THIS PART!
Why do I have a bad feeling?
Remember that AM created this woman. She probably has all sorts of STDs.
Yeah, a bit... >.< It was either say that or be all smug and "Do I live up to your expectations?" Sidenote - does anyone else notice the broken mirror and the tapestry with the guy holding a mirror? Huh....
So... APPARENTLY... The game WANTS me to be a 2-timing whore... Ok.... Good to know... And listen, biatch, this was YOUR idea! YOU'RE the one who was chasing ME all day -.-
That... Could have gone better...
So apparently I was too busy boning the maid to see this doorway... New room - explore! :D
Must be problems with the heater.
Ohey there... I think I'll grab this for later...
Are you really that shocked by this..?
First I read the Philospher's Stone, hoping it was about Harry Potter. It's not.
Second, I try to read the Arabic book. No dice.
Well THAT'S convenient... Ladies & gents, I think it's time to summon a demon and break into little Ms. Pissy Pants's room...
Because you know what game this is!
That's right, try to sweet-talk her again...
Well, at least there's that....
Well aren't YOU a privileged douchebag?
Yeah! You tell her, Ted!
Well shit... She's got ya there, Teddy boy...
She finally takes pity on poor Ted and tells him where he might find someone who does know where the mirror is.
We were just there... She wasn't...
Interesting... I wonder if that 'master' is AM....
Ok, ok, jeez! Back to the bedroom!
So she wasn't in her room. I decided to go ask Ms. Sassy Pants where I could find her step mom when this suddenly appeared next to her bed...
"Who are you?"
"What do you want?"
"Can you tell me where Ellen's mirror is?"
"Who is Surgat?"
Missed Screencap: Not to be confused with higher beings like myself. Opener of all locks - yeah right!
"Sounds like you really hate demons"
"How can beings as powerful as you resort to fighting like school children?"
"Are you saying AM is in control of Hell?"
I like that he's so practical, anyway...
"What do you mean that you do things like we do them here?"
Sounds like he's talking about more than just demons fighting.... Meta conversations - get!
"What do you mean this could cause problems for me?"
Missed Screencap: "And remember, with AM's control over what you see, you can't trust appearances!"
"Please, go away!"
And with that, I gotta fly for a while. See you tomorrow if I'm not on again later :3
The holy eunuch?
Well, at least he'll be safe from Maid's STDs.
So, I just realized...
Why does the maid have a portrait of the devil in her room? I don't know how I never noticed they were the same before (I usually wont do her anyway) , but now I feel it's an even worse sign than we thought...
OK! Bit of a shit day yesterday... My phone got stolen... FML. Time for some nice, relaxing terror.
"I can't let you die! The devil is waiting to take your soul!"
Time to poke around some more.
Only partially completed? Hmmm...
I hope your phone thief is kidnapped by AM and finds him/herself in one of the BAD ENDS.
I bet I know where we could get some more blood...
But of course he won't cut himself. Pussy. So I go back to the bookshelf, and there's randomly a new book. That's useful....
I'm lost again, so let's look at the tapestries.
K... So lets get to it...
But it totally didn't....
So I got stumped and asked BF what to do next. Apparently we use the creepy thing as a hinge. Kay. It revealed another door that we couldn't see because of the 2D aspect of this game.... -.-
How do you know the 'lord of the house' isn't Pigpen?
Most of the books are just novels...
Except this diary... :3
That sucks... She should probably, I dunno, STOP USING MAGIC?
You should probably, I dunno, NOT PUT YOUR DICK IN CRAZY?
You should probably, I dunno, NOT LISTEN TO YOUR CRAZY WIFE WHO HATES YOUR DAUGHTER AND LEAVE THEM ALONE TOGETHER?
. . . . .
Missed Screencap: "Is Lady Ellen prepared?"
What're you doin' with mah woman!?
They sure are making it easy for me to eavesdrop.
Bet I know where you can find a prince... Or at least, a guy who's just as haughty...
I dunno, why don't you ask her?
"What have you done to Ellen, you old witch!?"
That's not what I told you to ask her... Nor is that an answer to the question you chose... ETA: Happy 300 screen caps!
Ok, time to take a break, run to the store, get consolatory chocolate, and then dive back in!
If the guy got stuck in the forest because of dire wolves or whatever and he died, how did his diary get back to his room?
He wrote it before he left.
Well obviously I just fail at reading comprehension then. That makes more sense, thanks.
Nah, I had to read it twice to make sense of it. I wondered the same thing for a second because the phrasing is weird.
Alright! Twix ice cream :D OM NOM NOM NOM!
And that would be...?
"Why do you keep calling me prince?"
"What ritual are you talking about?"
"What's this about a gate?"
"What's supposed to be my role in this ritual?"
"Where is Ellen's mirror?"
"I looked on Ellen's dressing table. The mirror's not there."
Should I care? Cuz I don't....
This is part where you pretend to be a hero or you are a true hero.
"What if I can't find the mirror?"
I already talked to him... He wasn't that helpful...
"I oughta kill you instead..."
So I tried using the bit of mirror on the witch, hoping that he would stab her... But he was just worried about getting blood on her... *sigh*
"Who is this witch that lives with you?"
I decide to go see what Ellen has to say about all this...
"Why can't you just destroy the mirror yourself?"
So I decide to talk to the witch some more...
"Why can't you open the gate without the mirror?"
I'm guessing she's talking about El Diablo in the next room over.
"What's in it for me?"
Yeaaaaah, but you KNOW you'll just torture YOURSELF for teh rest of your life with the knowledge of the fact that you killed Ellen...
"Perhaps there's something else I can do for you instead?"
"I'm not going to make love to you! I'll never betray my love for Ellen!"
Missed Screencap: I think it's appearance that's guiding you, I know ALL about your little romp with the scullery maid!"
Can't a guy learn from his mistakes? :C
I choose to think about her offer more, which is what I'm going to do, overnight in fact. Nite everyone :3
This can't possibly be right, but I could never bring myself to do it in my own game for that same reason. I very, very badly want to see what happens if you give in and sleep with her step mother. It's not like the maid will be putting out again anyway, and we might as well see how much worse this can get. Anyone else insane enough to share my curiosity?
Hey, it's a dystopia.
It's not like we're getting the good ending anyway. Ted is the horniest of untrustworthy horndogs in this scenario.
Ms. Lilly, I like your style. I delurked in another LP, but then I felt disloyal, since I've followed your LPs and was absolutely entranced by the Phantom LP. Don't stop, please. I love these games, and I am either too poor or cheap to get them, alternately I am linguistically challenged as well. I love the Ellison story, but your commentary gives me a much needed giggle. Thanks.
Hehe, thanks for the encouragement everyone! I had a HUGE breakthrough with the Phantom LP, so I got a little sidetracked, but this one is by no means dead! I've also signed up to help translate another game lol. But I WILL find time to work on this one tonight for a bit! :D But first, food time ^-^
Alright, let's do this!
"So you just want me to break the mirror?"
And... That's all we get >.>;;; I can either threaten her again, which makes her tell me to go away. Or I can tell her I'll think about her offer, which also makes her tell me to gtfo... *sigh* I guess we're back to exploring again....
Guess napping isn't an option :/
Oooooh, new books! :D
Idea... Get... >:3
I.... GUESS you could tell her the whole plan first....
CURSES! Foiled again! :C
"Oh DON'T I? Kalla igna thacko!"
She passes out and drops the chalk ^_^
TRADE, eh...? >:3
looks like I got a new OTP.
"Who are you?"
Nice-ta meetcha! I'm Ted the Horndog.
I rescind my previous greeting....
"Are you saying that you are another AM?"
Like a big ugly wart on the side of his metal toe?
"What kind of locks can you open?"
Ugh, don't mention chicks. Clearly Ted can't help himself @_@
"What were you saying about a trade?"
Well, since you really want to go home, why don't you just unlock something for me and I'll give YOU the ability to go home? Hey, it's either that, a piece of chalk, or a bloody piece of glass...
"Can you open a gate into the surface world?"
A little? Seems like good ol' Ted's got more than enough to share around....
I think the demon's trying to poke the fourth wall a bit....
"You say love has trading value?"
I don't like where this is going....
Yeah... I'm gonna have to go ahead and say "FUCK NO" to that...
"How about taking the witch's soul instead?"
Yeah, I turned her down, too... xD
"Can you unlock the maid's bedroom door?"
But... you could open a gate to another world...? Uhhh... you feelin' ok?
Gotta go to the store and get juicy fruit for the demon to munch on :P
Ugh, will you QUIT TRYING TO HUMP EVERYTHING, TED!?
The IMPORTANT thing you should be asking yourself is "are wolves juicy?"
Well, that's new...
"What do you want?"
"Can you tell me where Ellen's mirror is?"
I... Don't think people know how mirrors work in this world....
"Why is everyone so interested in the mirror?"
"What power does this mirror have over Ellen?"
Missed screencap: "The mirror has the power to save her or to condemn her"
Ugh... Sounds like we're gonna have to find the damn thing... I bet it's in the maid's room cuz that's the only other room we haven't explored... But what's "juicy" that I can give the damn demon??
"What can you tell me about the devil?"
That's one opinion...
"Who is this Surgat I've heard about?"
.....I don't think Angels understand questions...
Such INTENSE DETAILS he's giving us....
"Please! Save us!"
....But then he stops talking to us... Ugh.
Welp, 2 down... Cast you votes for the other 3! I'll see who wins tomorrow :3
I think at this point you need some cheering up. So let's go with Nimdok and the Pastry Corps. I'm sure it will turn out to be cheerful and uplifting!
Ha. Ha ha. Hahahaha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Haha. Ha. ha.
Ooookay then... Yeah, let's go with Nimdok. Why not? What could go wrong?
