 Post subject: Ayn or Nial
PostPosted: Wed Apr 11, '07, 2:36 pm 
When you played PSIII, which quest did you enjoy more, Ayn's or Nial's? They're both pretty unique, compared to all the other quests, and have a nice variety of characters.

Personally, I prefer Ayn's trip. It is the only part of the game where we get to see the consequences one of the marriage decisions had on areas other than where Rhys, Ayn, etc. chose to live. I liked returning to Landen to get Sari, then going to explore the other dome to rescue Thea.

Personally, I enjoyed Ayn's quest more. Dunno why.
Besides the mechanical advantages of Ayn being able to heal, and Sari doing massive damage with knives, more than likely I enjoyed fighting a Wren type enemy. That and I liked having Sean for my third gen. main, despite the... wrongness of marrying Ayn and Thea. :P

I like Nial's journey the most. It has a "mysterious rebel" character in Ryan, which I like. You also get one of Wren's transforming parts and the teleporting pendant on this side, which makes it a little quicker to get through.

I like Nial more. First of all, is that you meet Laya earlier than in Ayn' s quest. Also you get Laya's pendant that makes life of third generation easier. And because of his beautiful daughter Gwyn Sa Riik :D And also Adan's and Aron's endings I like more than Sean's or Crys's

Both scenarios were good, but I'll have to go with Nial's. And, to some degree, both quests are similar, though are very different at the same time.

Here's one little example. While Ayn saves Thea from the enemy, Nial rescues Alair from his own people, knowing very well that she's a Layan. In my eyes, Nial's quest is that much better for that reason.

Then again, I'm a nut when it comes to Nial and Alair, so that could be another reason why. :P

I never really thought of them as his people. I see what you're saying though; that says a lot about Nial's character.

Well, it is VERY hard to say about characters character from the game. But Phantasy Star III: Characters Book can tell a lot about them. Unfortunately, book was published only in Japan...

Well, I say they're his people since they're also Orakians, y'know? Sorry for any little mix up there, just hope that people knew what I meant. :p

True, but we can just use some imagination where the game is lacking. :mrgreen:

Yeah, I know what you meant. I just never made the connection in my own mind that they are Orakians, Nial is Orakian, and therefore they are his people while Alair is the "enemy," a Layan. I knew all of that, but I never really connected the dots between the separate facts before.

True, but I think this event says a lot about Nial. Someone that saves one of the "enemy" from his own people, after they've captured her, seems like a good guy that can look past the Orakian and Layan labels people use to separate themselves on the Alisa III.

Ayn's is more challenging, but I like the story in Nial's better.... so I'll go with Nial. Even just picking Lena over Maia creates more intriguing imo.
