In the game PS4, a sizable of the game deals with the planet Motavia facing dire events after relying on a computer system to rule their lives. Events are very bad indeed. Agriculture weakens considerably, left over computer systems for environmental control go haywire, the population growth spirals downward, just to name a few disasters.

Which brings me to this question: Will civilization on Motavia be able to adapt?

Sure, they will be able to adapt. Now, when Motavia is under control of Demi and Wren in Zelan everything sould be OK. They went through cataclism in AW 843 (official timeline), destruction of Mother Brain and Parma so they can go through destruction of Profound Darkness too.

Well, I would assume that if the planet goes back to it's "natural" state, then it would be the same type of environment as in PSI, right? So since Palmans survived then, they should be able to adapt. (And besides, now they've got numans! XD)

I don't know... back in PS1, they may have had support and resources from Palma to help them out. They don't have that benefit now and have to survive on their own.

I'm sure they can adapt, but it all depends on what Wren and Demi do after PS4. The main problems will be food, drinkable water, and heat. If Wren and Demi can get some kind of climate control working to keep at least one area green like PS2 Mota, that place could meet the first two needs. I don't know if they can do anything about the heat, though.

I don't think they will have any problem adapting. They seem to be doing okay up until PSIV. The state of the environment was on a downward slope before that, but Wren seems to have more options for improving things after the game. He's got new resources in Daughter and the Landale, and he can put those to use in repairing or rebuilding some of the lost environmental control.

Have any of you ever read the Phantasy Star Compendium translation?

With at least one Numan, it seems they should be able to survive. And like Rune Sa Riik said, they've got Wren and Demi watching over them... as long as they last that is. So I say yes, Motavia is in it for the long haul.

Do you mean the stuff about Rika being the start of a new and improved human race? I don't think she would have much effect in that area by herself. It would take hundreds of years for any improvements in her genes to make it into the larger population. And that's assuming they're dominant genes that wouldn't be bred out of her descendants by later mixing with humans.

If there were more Numans, it might have a bigger effect, but I doubt Rika alone would have much of an impact on human survival in that way.

Yeah, Neithird, you're right. It would take a very long time for her to have much of an influence on things.

I'm still in favor of the idea that Motavia will continue on, considering the Palman colonies in PSI and the fact that with the PD dead and gone it would be a lot easier to get around on the planet without running into monsters everywhere! The people would certainly be in for some rough times though. There wasn't much water on the planet back in PSI.

Yeah, once all the monsters are gone that should make things a lot easier. Hopefully Wren and Demi can handle the water problems. If nothing else, they could use the Landale to carry some of the snow from Dezo over to Motavia to help. :idea:

That's a good one!

Hopefully the Ant Lions from PSI won't come back! :o
