Okay, enough procrastination. We have a world to save. We go to the Bird God Shrine...
|Wasn't something supposed to happen?|
...and nothing happens.
The ritual does not happen. The bird god stays as dead as your proverbial Northern Blue. Even Alice is flummoxed by this.
Nero pops up, as he is wont to do, and explains that the flow of mana has been disrupted by the presence of the snow continent. The shrine can no longer gather enough mana to power the resurrection of the bird god. In order to carry out the ritual we first need to destroy the snow continent.
That’s a little, um, extreme.
As an alternative to not blowing a continent out of existence he suggests going over there to investigate what is disrupting the flow of mana.
Previous attempts to visit the snow continent have been thwarted by some kind of magic teleport barrier similar to what guards the elf village in Yamatai. I’m guessing this is the plot trigger that undoes the barrier blocking entrance to the mysterious snow continent.
Sure enough, when we sail over to visit, this time the White Rabbit is waiting outside the cave entrance.
|Of course she'd be here...|
She is as cryptic as ever, suggesting we need to take out whoever is responsible for the snow continent being here in the first place. Then she runs off into the cave, because that’s what she does—say something cryptic then hop off.
As soon as we enter the cave we’re ambushed by angel guards surprised we were able to penetrate the magic barrier.
|Angels here? Something suspicious is going on.|
Angels, hmm. The plot thickens.
It’s not just angels. The other inhabitants of the icy caves are snow witches and polar bear girls.
|Spiky and fluffy|
The polar bear girl’s Bad End is to sit on you.
|In Soviet Russia the bear… yeah, let’s not go there.|
It’s cold. She’s warm. So it’s not all bad. Obviously we end up in her pussy, but that’s warm as well. After bouncing up and down on us until we’re fully depleted, she takes us off to her nest and everyone lives happily ever after (at least until chaos destroys the universe).
Ice Witch, who I guess would be a Yuki-Onna if the game didn’t already have a Yuki-Onna, has a killer bod.
|Killer ass... literally|
Unfortunately, in this case literally. Her pussy is cold but not unpleasant and she soon has us coming, and coming, and coming... until she’s sucked all the heat out of our body and left us behind as a frozen corpse.
Hmm. I can think of another name for her. One that rhymes with witch...
Nice kisser though, although her lips are a little on the frosty side.
The snow caverns are another maze with various goodies hidden in chests along the way. Halfway through we end up outside and at the peak where we come across a polar bear girl village.
|Okay, they're actually kinda adorable... in a platonic way|
The polar bear girls are rather cute in a platonically cute way. They ask not to be bullied and seem to be having fun making snowmen. There’s a hut here that functions as a free inn and a few items hiding in chests and pots.
Also, now that you’ve found the polar bear village, you can also rescue the stranded polar bear girl out in the ocean. She’s on an island that is pretty much directly west of Magistea Village. After you’ve escaped the snow caverns, go pick her up. She’ll now temporarily join the party and you can bring her to the polar bear village. Once safely returned home she’ll reward you with 3 small medals and some other minor bits and bobs.
Then it’s back down into the snow caverns on the other side to find a route down to the centre of the snow continent. Eventually we emerge a little bit north of a brand new settlement, which we shall investigate in the next post.
