Tears to Tiara 2: Heir of the Overlord (PS3): jogglerwiki.info: PC & Video Games
For Tears to Tiara II: Heir of the Overlord on the PlayStation 3, a GameFAQs message board topic titled "Does this game have multiple endings. Aug 20, The cast of Tears to Tiara (2/5th of whom are married to Arawn) marriages after their initial set-up, except for his relationship with Rhiannon but pretty fun, as were the various battles the Gale Tribe ended up enduring over. Nov 7, I wasn't quite sure what to expect of Tears to Tiara II. I thought it would be a SRPG with visual novel sections. What I got was a visual novel with.
She tried to hide her gender as a female in order to stay with the party. Though, her androgyny is more apparent in the anime beginning with her first appearance in a fighting contest in Londinium. Rathty wields a giant hammer very efficiently despite her height and is also proficient in digging tunnels by punching the earth with her bare hands or with her hammer.
She prefers to make household tools than weapons for war, much to Arawn's dismay.
Her gender was discovered after fighting the wolf horde and caught rabbis - the other girls drank the antidote, which Epona gave to Arawn, which left one bottle - he thought Epona gave him the wrong number of bottles. He discovers Rathty later poisoned. Arawn tries to give her the antidote, but Rathty rejects the antidote because she fears acknowledging herself as female will mean she can no longer join the party. Arawn calls her silly and tells her he doesn't mind.
She takes the antidote and is cured. Rathty has an unofficial skill called Rathty Missile, by tossing Rathty to the ground around the target, Rathty can cause an earthquake. This was improvised once by Llyr to allow Octavia and Morgan to enter Avalon during a siege, much to Rathty's dismay later about being tossed to enemy siege lines.
Rei Takatori PC version Voiced by: He was first introduced in episode 5, Londinium. He played the harp for the group and informed them that the place they were hunting belongs to the Brigantes tribe.
When at Avalon Castle, he tends to tease Epona, touching her and saying "soft and smooth". It is also revealed that he had met Epona as a boy when he got lost in the forest. Although he didn't know it was her singing the song that prompted his decision to become a minstrel, his doubts about it was confirmed when she began singing once more under the moonlight, right after he left.
He is the chieftain of the Brigantes tribe; the direct descendants of Pwyll that the Gael tribe broke away from. He later passes the chief status to Arthur. When Taliesin traveled with the party to break the glyph on Mt. Claes, he stumbled upon the Dragon's Grave, where he meets a hatching dragon. He also learned about Arawn's past and his suffering there.
Through those past visions, he learned how to play the Song of Creation, which he eventually used it to stop the blizzard to cause the entire mountain to crumble onto the Dark Army. He returns later to assist everyone in the final battle with an army of dragons volunteering their assistance to the party. He is foretold that if he becomes Chief of the Brigantes he will offend the Heavens, and will become a victim to a beast. Much to the prophecy, Taliesin now cares for his beloved dragon that he met and is practically enslaved by it due to its constant hunger, which he does not mind.
Shita Okuri PC version Voiced by: He was the one who resurrected Arawn, wanting to use Riannon as a sacrifice and wants Arawn to make him the next ruler of the new age. Arawn later killed him instead after letting Riannon regain her consciousness. Ken Achilles PC version Voiced by: He believes that ideals are things that allows one to fight and achieve their goal. He doesn't believe in fighting for others or in the name of friendship to which Arthur greatly opposes.
He has met Arthur at a meeting four years ago before the starting of the anime. He later returned to crush the Gael rebellion that was happening in Albion where Londinium, the Divine Empire's trade center faces threat from the Gael Tribe. At his first encounter with Arawn, Arawn tells him that the only thing he desires is "regius" meaning-royalty but it can also denote "little king".
He also told him that the day he will decipher the true meaning of the word he shall face his death. Until their final battle at Avalon he thought that Arawn wanted royalty but during his battle with Arthur he realised the true meaning of "regius". He was then killed by his hands. As a dying soldier he asked for a favour to Arthur or rather he referred to him as "little king" to spare the lives of his men even though they tried to kill the Gaels and wanted to take over Avalon.
Arthur concerns with Arawn but makes his own decision to do the favour. Before dying Gaius also commands Dekimus, his subordinate to surrender to the Gaels. He wields a great sword, and is the only member of the Divine Empire to wield it proficiently. His name is based on the Latin name of Julius Caesar. From this it can be seen that the Senate is extremely corrupt in character, however its power is not to be taken lightly.
The Senate has a private army of its own, Rublum, which is superior in quality to the regular Imperial Army. The Imperial Senate meets its end in episode 18, when Lector burns the Senate and the Senate building after revealing to them the death of the emperor and to throw the Empire into confusion, thus preventing what might have been a significant enemy from challenging him when he made his move to end the Human World.
She is first seen in episode 7, Colosseum leading a group of soldiers wearing seemingly red colored metal as armor. She is the Commander of Rublum. When Octavia defeated her in a duel shown in the flashback, she said that she could go crazy and kill or hurt anything in front of her with the sole thought of the incident and the shame inflicted on her from being denied the warrior's death custom of the anime.
She commented that she would die of her insanity if she were not made Commander of Rublum. She later faces off against Octavia one last time in Episode 11 of the anime. Throughout the fight, flashbacks show that Octavia and Lydia were once the best of friends during their Imperial Training before the fateful fight in which Octavia didn't kill her.
My thoughts on Tears to Tiara 2's story : JRPG
The duel ends with Lydia's death. Her final words to Octavia are asking if she was a good swordsman. Octavia cries and says that she was a perfect swordsman as she dies. Man Koganata PC versionVoiced by: His opinion of the 'Perfect' world was different from the other Angels.
The others chose to exterminate the imperfect to create a new perfect world, but Myrddin's view was the opposite — he prefers correction to extermination. Unlike the other Angels that are eternally youthful, Myrddin is shown to be an elderly man.
He explains to Arawn that he's been doing the acts that are against his own conscience for a very long time. Although it can be assumed that he aided in the genocide of creatures on earth, but deep in his heart he loathes it, hinting that he is the only Angel that is merciful.
Because of this, he is considered a senile by his colleagues and even Arawn initially. He later sacrificed himself to begin a new spring.
He also gave the humans the gift of fire to save the human race from the wrath of the other Angels whom began the Ice Age to exterminate them. According to Riannon, he is punished severely by the other Angels for his action similar to Prometheus and the twilight is caused by the tears of a god as legend claims that Myrddin's suffering is so intense that he weeps, but this may be just a legend.
In 17th episode, Myrddin appears in Arawn's vision and there are no sign of torture on him. And in episode 4, Arawn states that no one can punish him anymore. And, in the last episode, he and Pwyll appear in Riannon's vision along with Primula to give support to her.
Although Pwyll and he didn't say anything, their presence motivated Riannon to save everyone. They are the ones behind all the tragedies on Earth - the extermination of a race and a new beginning. In seeking to create a perfect world, which they do in God's name, they had been destroying and re-creating a new Age.
In the 14th episode, a mural depicting them is shown with Arawn's face is scratched with a sun on the whole lot of the Angels, symbolizing Watos. One of them, who is a senior looking man with brown hair is holding a wooden staff, hinting that he is their leader or an Archangel it is possible that he is the one that first speak during a meeting in Lucifer episode and charge Myrddin to deal with the new Angel.
Arthur comments that they look like the one that murdered his father and compared Arawn's similarity to them. It is possible that the Twelve Angels at least visited the elves in the past, given that the artist know how they looks like. And, Pwyll knows the name of Myrddin, showing that he knows the name of the Angels respectively as well, supporting the Angels' visit theory.
And, Limwris also told that the fortress Avalon was constructed by the Angels and the elves worshiped Watos just like the Angels seem to support these theories. It is also possible that they betrayed the elves afterwards, as they began to rain their city, Avalon, with Gravitas-emitting Obelisks to exterminate them and Pwyll comments that the "agreement with the heavens" is as nothing.
It is possible they are based on Jesus Christ's Apostles. It had some really poignant moments too. The pace is slow, though, and at times it feels like the game uses ten lines of dialogue to say what could have been conveyed in three. Like many JRPGs, it also has many story and battle sequences that are just filler. The first chapter especially takes about five hours to get to the action, and many of the scenes during those five hours could have been shorter.
The actual ending is good though. The humor varies in execution. Some humor scenes are pretty funny, some are hilarious, but many are cliche or repeat the same joke too many times. The main character, Hamil, is excellent. He has a lot of self-loathing and constantly doubts himself. He has a bit of a martyr complex. These and his need for revenge are results of his traumatic past.
Whoever did his voice acting was really talented. Kleito's history would have been nice too and a little more for Golyat but I think you are right Golyat is more like a plot point. He does make me laugh but I really didn't think he would be a party member he just seems kind of out of place even though he is funny.
From what I know about Arawn he seems more likable to me personally while Hamil without a doubt is very well developed I think Arawn's personality draws me to him more. I guess I really should give the 1st game a go when I can. Anyway even if I don't agree on the pantheon segment of the game I am very grateful for the reply so thanks for that and its great to chat to someone who also enjoyed the story a lot.
The perfection of Izebel's character definitely made the second half seem a bit lackluster in comparison, even though it's actually in itself well written. I think it depends on how religious your Catholic friend is. The only thing the game says is "fundamentalism is bad".
Religion itself is actually given a good light. Valentinius and Simon are both definitely good, and Abraxas is not "evil". Of course as a history buff I can tolerate him because there were bad popes in history. There doesn't seem to be any stated mechanism. Even the first game it's just "these two are reincarnations".
I can see how a reader might think that. It's important to remember though that 7 years ago the Empire would've been a lot stronger than it is in the game, and Hasdrubal admits he's not as great a general.
Beta is Dead: Anime Review: Tears to Tiara
If Hasdrubal had rebelled, Izebel, Monomachus, Enneads, Hamil, and the Barca faction would probably have followed him to their death, so we'd have no one left to overthrow the empire. I think Tarte overestimated her power as the goddess and didn't expect the empire had direct intervention from heaven. Also of note is that from how Enneads carried things out in Hamil's absence I think it's possible they would've won even without the main duo.
Hamil did leave behind his detailed plans after all. But yes at the end of the day it was a blunder on both their parts. Ya Aemilia definately got no development: I would say Arawn is like the male counterpart of Tarte. Without the Tsundere of course. She really is the best example I can think of that fits it really well. Not only were there plenty of hints but when it finally all came together I just ended up in tears it would have been so hard for her to do what she did.
In my opinion she was ultimately just as important to their overall victory as the main party themselves. I am just way too attached to her out of personal bias lol. Well when you put it that way I guess they could get over it they do have a thick skin but when Abraxas mentioned how he turned the ideas of Simon the founder into a culture of fear of the after life it really did same like a direct jab at Catholism itself rather than extremism.
As being completely honest the Japanese make jabs at christianity all the time in a lot of their entertainment. Good thing Christians are generally pretty okay with it not reading into it too much.
Also Simon is awesome my favourtie quote was "Heaven resides within people. If every person devoted themselves to the good of all people, that world could be called heaven.
Thanks for that I thought that maybe I missed something but that is a shame I would have loved to know more about it. As Arthur I believe is the other reincarnated character. Ah good point I guess its due to my attachment to Hamil and Izebel that I judged Hasdurbal too harshly but he did leave a very horrible task behind for both Izebel and Hamil to accomplish.
Hamil tortured by trying to do the right thing and fighting to keep his sanity. While Izebel had to essentially live a lie and convince her former allies that she killed the man she loved which was really hard on her the poor woman deserved some happiness which she never got unlike Hamil.
Yeah I guess it was just arrogance on tarte's part I guess the incompetence did annoy me a little the only thing I question is if they could still beat Metatronius without Tarte and Hamil. I was genuinely gutted with Aemilia. When I read her character description in the book how it said she was a character that believed in the advancement of mankind through techonology I was really interested in her world view.
The first scene she was in the game was one of my favourite scenes as it was great how Izebel and Aemilia faced off and kept trying to outsmart each other while making jabs at the High priest was hilarious. Sounds good I think I might download the 1st game and check it out despite the fact its an H-game but I really liked Arawn from the brief time he was in the game. The only concern I have is that apparently the game play in the 1st game is far worse hopefully nothing that will put me off the game.
ParallelPain 4 years ago 6 Totally agree on Izebel I was doing some research, and interestingly Simon's idea is incredibly similar to the Jewish doctrine of Tikkun Olam. I don't know if it's coincidence or not, but if it's on purpose then the author just got more points added in my books. It's ironic how Hasdrubal paid for his failure with his life. And yet he's the one of the three present at his burning villa that ends up suffering the least. That scene is so good.
Even on first reading it's witty. On second, it actually shows that Izebel is actually trying to dissuade Zaras from forcing a rebellion and dismisses the possibility that Hamil is behind it all because he's a "dumb kid" even though she knows otherwise. If you know Japanese, get the PS3 version of the first game. Unfortunately I have to say the anime version is superior to the PC version. Totally agree on Izebel I was doing some research, and interestingly Simon's idea is incredibly similar to the Jewish doctrine of Tikkun Olam.
Strange I am not sure if I agree with TV tropes that Izebel is a fallen hero but rather falls under the trope of good all along.
The reason why is because she never actually did anything evil while one might argue she did nearly kill him at sea.
