And we are on our way to find the island of the Astrals and to reunite Gran with his father and maybe we’ll even find out what the deal with Lyria is.
No. No we are not. Instead we are taking another fetch quest from the shopkeeper while she ‘gathers supplies’ and the crew are exploring some ruins in a forest. There isn’t a single thing wrong with this as an episode but it contributes nothing to the overall plot and we learn nothing new about the characters. As a younger viewer I’d have happily sat through this episode and thought it was great fun but now I’m just left wondering what the point was. If they were attempting to introduce new characters it hasn’t succeeded as we really didn’t learn anything about the other two treasure hunters other than their choice of weapon and fighting style. So yeah, it works as an episode but I could have happily not watched this one this week.
