Ribble and the Bridge

Postby Trovador » Tue Jul 07 2009 3:37am

I'm playing "Shining Force - Final Conflict" and am in the battle against the Kraken. I found it strange that Ruburan, Adam, Ian and Cynthia have to cross a bridge to reach Ribble. What bridge is that? On the map, Ribble is a little distant from the river and "Shining Force II" is not necessary to cross any bridge or river to go to the city.

Complete the battle, and you'll see why the bridge isn't in Shining Force 2.

Isn't Ribble before the Kraken fight? My memory ain't that good but I'm fairly certain. If that's the case, then the map's just screwed up

I think Trovador got slightly mixed up... Looking over the Final Conflict script, it looks to me like they had to cross the bridge after Ribble, not to get to Ribble. So, while I am not great with Shining geography by any means, as far as I can tell there is no error in the map.

Um....In SF2 the Kraken is between Ribble and Hassan as there's a body of water there.

In FC, there is no body of water in between Hassan and Ribble from what we're shown. Not to menation that if they keep going north from Ribble towards North Parmecia the only body of water I know of is the ocean.

Well, Final Conflict doesn't show the whole journey from Hassan to Ribble, does it? Maybe I ought to start up a new game and see this for myself...

I'm just wondering where the Kraken is if it's not inbtween Hassan and Ribble as it is in SF2.

You face the Kraken at the last bridge before Ruburan's Hideout (SF2's Hobgoblin Cave). This battle takes place after Ribble.
