Show Notes

Finally, our heroes arrive at the Keeper’s Dome, but the distortion has worsened, and the party suffers a few more than mechanical failures… But with the sealed gate open, perhaps answers lie within? Or perhaps the trauma of being trapped in a world before later on has finally gotten to them... T and G discuss: * The role that dreamstone plays in the world of Chrono Trigger: is it _the_ source of magic? A source? A part of Lavos? Is it… the Frozen Flame?! * How Dreamstone fits into the storytelling and lore of the Chrono universe, and a bit about how maybe most of the lore got retconned by Chrono Cross!? (If so… be prepare for us to revisit when we get through Chrono Cross) * A boss MADE of Dreamstone (or at least with it): the Mammon Machine! Why is it so-named, and how the heck do you beat it? ## Where to find us The Zeal Archives is a [Nickscast](https://thenickscast.com) production and can be found wherever fine podcasts are listened to, or at the source at [zealarchives.com](https://zealarchives.com) For news and other updates about the podcast, you can follow us on [Twitter](https://twitter.com/zealarchives) or [Facebook](https://facebook.com/zealarchives) @zealarchives For more about the hosts, Nick T and Nick G, check out [the Nickscast](https://thenickscast.com) on [Twitter](https://twitter.com/thenickscast), [Facebook](https://facebook.com/thenickscast), [Instagram](https://instagram.com/thenickscast), or [YouTube](https://youtube.com/thenickscast), all @thenickscast. ## Cast * Nick Green as (Nick) G and himself * Nick Terwoord as (Nick) T, Robo and himself * [SMZeldaRules](https://smzeldarules.carrd.co/) as ????? ## Credits **Production Credits** Editing, scripting, and podcast visual design by Nick Terwoord.

R66Y: Postmodern Prometheus [Book 2, Chapter 8]

With T faded away into the distortion, G is left with only his grief… and the explanation for the mysterious voices, Lucca! With their misdeeds spelled out before them, and the loss of friends Robo and T, can G soldier on to try to own up to the mistakes that have been made, save the world of Chrono Trigger, and find his way home? T and G discuss: * Robo’s role in the story of Chrono Trigger, the etymology of his name, and his ORIGIN STORY! * The mechanics of Robo, and the game. Did you know that Robo can do any magic except water? Not bad for a ‘shadow’ user WITH NO MAGIC! * Is Robo alive or is he merely a machine? A mere shell to be exploited (no, but...() ## Where to find us The Zeal Archives is a [Nickscast](https://thenickscast.com) production and can be found wherever fine podcasts are listened to, or at the source at [zealarchives.com](https://zealarchives.com) For news and other updates about the podcast, you can follow us on [Twitter](https://twitter.com/zealarchives) or [Facebook](https://facebook.com/zealarchives) @zealarchives For more about the hosts, Nick T and Nick G, check out [the Nickscast](https://thenickscast.com) on [Twitter](https://twitter.com/thenickscast), [Facebook](https://facebook.com/thenickscast), [Instagram](https://instagram.com/thenickscast), or [YouTube](https://youtube.com/thenickscast), all @thenickscast. ## Cast * Nick Green as (Nick) G and himself * Nick Terwoord as Robo and himself * [SMZeldaRules](https://smzeldarules.carrd.co/) as Lucca ## Credits **Production Credits** Editing, scripting, and podcast visual design by Nick Terwoord.

Tyranno Lair: History Repeating [Book 3, Chapter 1]

It’s out of the frying pan and into the fire as our heroes, T, G, Lucca, and Robo frantically flee from an unexpected pack of… dinosaurs?! Fortunately, they’re able to make it back to the End of Time to regroup, but so many mysteries remain about what damage the experiment has caused for the world (the multiverse) of Chrono Trigger. It looks like it’s time for a new adventure to begin! In our world, T and G revisit Chrono Trigger’s 65,000,00 BC period, specifically, Tyranno Lair, to get a better understanding of what makes this section of the game so great, but also a bit of a mixed bag: * The impenetrable fortress that it is: How the game sets the stage for this epic locale, and how incredibly impractical it is * The mini-boss rush of Nizbel II, Azala and Black Tyranno: Epic battles, or road bumps on the way to Zeal? * The reptiles! What the heck are they, anyway? Editing, scripting, and podcast visual design by [Nick Terwoord](https://nt3rp.io). Special thanks to Square Enix for making that game that we love, Chrono Trigger ...and for not suing us. ## Episode Cast Alphabetically, by actor: * Nick G in the role of his fictional self, and discussion host * Nick T in the role of his fictional self, Robo, and discussion host * SMZeldaRules in the role of Lucca Ashtear ## Musical Credits * [00:00] Chase scene - [Chrono Symphonic: Frog’s Intervention](https://ocremix.org/album/7/chrono-trigger-chrono-symphonic) by [ellywu2](https://ocremix.org/artist/4776/ellywu2) from [http://ocremix.org](http://ocremix.org) used under [ocremix.org content policy](http://ocremix.org/info/Content_Policy#If_you.27re_using_our_content_elsewhere_.28.22Terms_of_Use.22.29%E2%80%A6) * [01:36] Lucca Explains it all - [ReMix: Chrono Trigger "Electric Clouds"](https://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01092) by [posu yan](https://ocremix.org/artist/4290/posu-yan) from [http://ocremix.org](http://ocremix.org) used under [ocremix.org content policy](http://ocremix.org/info/Content_Policy#If_you.27re_using_our_content_elsewhere_.28.22Terms_of_Use.22.29%E2%80%A6) * ...
