Place in Timeline

A theory I thought about

Discuss this classic action RPG for the Sega Saturn.

Place in Timeline

Postby sbloom85 » Mon Aug 05 2013 6:36pm

I just finished the Mirror Labyrinth and talked to the hobbit elder, Parn (Kazin) and Salah (Sarah). Kazin mentions a friend named Puck, who I'm guessing is Bowie, saying that he's becoming a great warrior as well.

My theory is that this is set during New Granseal's first year; Bowie and the others are still quite inexperienced against Zeon's forces and that an Odegan messenger made his way to New Granseal to warn them about Pazort and the Dark Titan. Kazin and Sarah volunteer to look into the matter. They learn about Jiles and his son Mars and decide to help Mars deal with the problem.

Thoughts?

Pretty sure I recall Wisdom occurring after the events of SFII, but someone else would have to refresh my memory on what the indications are, other than Kazin and Sarah being a couple at that point.

That's most likely, but without any official word, it's all speculation, and I like speculating.

It's an interesting idea, but the ending cutscene of Shining Wisdom refers to Oddeye's death and the end of the war with Zeon, so the game has to have taken place some time after SF2.

Oh yeah... I forgot about that. It's been a while since I completed it.

Yes. There are books in the castle that make references to "Puck and the Granseal Force", and perhaps sealing a great evil, so this is after SF2. I believe Moogie had a game timeline on SFC somewhere... I speculated on ties between SF2 and SW on OTS years ago, take a look if you haven't yet: ots.shiningforcecentral.com , under Misc --> Shining Series connections.

Yeah. I've looked over it time and again. I don't know why that this play through made the timeline seem off. This topic can be locked. I'd do it if I knew how to.

I know this is way belated. :lol:

Sarah actually ran off following Bowie's kissing of Princess Elis and was joined by Kazin, apparently not only to comfort her but to win her over.

In the Original Version of the game she is not interested, but in the North American Working Designs version they changed the story, as well as a number of the names of characters and places including Puck who is indeed Bowie.

That bit actually isn't entirely their fault. The storyline changes are totally on them but apparently Sega wouldn't or had not released their consent to use the names from previous installments as they obviously own the rights to them.

So ultimately Salah and Parn (Urgh!) were now hunting down minions of Zhaion (Zeon), and had tracked Pazort to Odegan where Mars was fighting to redeem himself and save Odegan.
