After proving Mephisto is, surprise surprise, in league with the devil, we now have to carry out a mission for her. Plansect, the original Forest of Nope, is in civil war, with insects and plants happily munching each other. Someone should make a spin-off game – Plants vs
Plansect Village can be found on the map as a big tree to the west of Grand Noah.
|Warning: Forest of Nope ahead|
We’re barely through the entrance gates when Lily and Rooty attack us. Both of these were in the original series. Lily kills you by wrapping her petals around you and absorbing all your juices. Rooty does the same with her roots.
|It's not just your semen she's drawing up...|
Probably a good idea not to die to them then.
Despite the hostile alraune-type monsters running around, Plansect is still a village of sorts. You can use a harpy feather to warp here and it has NPCs in the form of a blacksmith and mermaid merchant on the south side of the central lake.
|Left: Blacksmith & Merchant. Ahead: Alraune Priestess & Canaan Sisters|
Amira is even hiding here at the end of a passageway to the south that curls back close to the entrance.
The area around the lake is safe. Outside of that and we’re open to attack from various horny plant-type monster girls. I say horny, but it’s hard to tell given that most of them seem to want to eat us or grow mushrooms out of our bodies. They are also all repeat girls from the original series. The only new one is a spunky l’il mushroom gal that appears to be a daughter of the original parasol mushroom girl. It’s a Delphinus, so if you were expecting horror extra from Matango, you’re not going to be disappointed.
|The angels are worse...|
Someone asked to go a bit more in detail on the Bad Ends, so I’ll try and do it for at least one girl per post. For this one it makes sense to go with L’il Shroom as she’s the only new monster girl in this section. Her temptation move is to smother our dick in soft mushrooms.
For her Bad End she hugs us close and buries our dick in her ‘flesh hole’, which I presume might have been a vagina at some point.
After getting us to come, she’s eager to use that semen to make us her seedbed. As she’s a fungus that means…
|She grows on you after a while...|
Uh oh. Yup, it means growing all over us with nice soft fungus.
|A little too much growing on you|
Maybe, it’s not that Bad of an End. Luka seems all happy and comfy and is spraying tons of spunk into her. Then the spunk runs out and we sort of... rot. Not nice, L’il Shroom. Not nice.
|L'il Shroom, I thought you were one of the nice ones...|
Burn. All. Mushroom. Girls. On. Sight.
Given the variety of the monster girls, recruiting everyone here is easier than you might think. Rooty and Lily are recruited as a pair. The others are also recruited as group of four (similar to the fairies and zombies). No new group scenes from what I can see. Toro Toro Resitance obviously kept Delphinus busy populating the Tartarus regions with fresh horrors.
The quest NPC is another returnee from the original series – the Alraune Princess. You can find her in the centre of the village here:
|Plansect Village's Chief - the stress is making her unwell|
Behind her are the Canaan sisters that also showed up in the original series. They’re here as mercenaries and not interested in talking to us.
Time to find out what’s going on from Priestess. The plants are tired of the war even though they appear to be winning. The insects have been pushed back to a mountain in the south.
(You can visit this location before talking to Priestess. The main entrance is blocked by a horde of plant girls and hornet girls fighting each other.)
Machine translation is also a little sketchy again. This is what I think the Priestess said, but it might not be totally accurate.
Plants and insects have always been a bit tetchy with each other. They were at civil war before, and then Alice 17th came along and bashed everyone’s heads together and forced a ceasefire. The ceasefire didn’t hold because two of Black Alice’s fake gods turned up to stir things up again. These are the jaguar god, Tezcatlipoca, and the feathered serpent god, Quetzalcoatl.
|More of Black Alice's fake gods|
(who also happen to be real Aztec gods, although your value of real may vary depending on what you believe)
As with the Aztec deities that inspired them, Tez and Quetzie don’t seem to like each other much. It’s not long before they’re fighting and dragging the plant and insect girls into their squabble. Plants are forced to align with Tez and the insects behind Quetzie. And they’ve been at war ever since.
|They don't like each other|
Priestess asks which side we want to support. So, another pick-a-side to determine which girl joins the harem.
Well, not quite.
There is a 3rd option where you can go talk to the insects to get their side of the story. Select this one.
Now it’s time to visit the Red(?) Mountain to talk to Queen Bee.
