Show Notes

With renewed energy and a plan to open a gate home, the two are on a hunt for knowledge as they pore through volume after volume in search of any hint as to how. Gaspar’s organizational system is less than chronological, and the two end up learning of his plans for world domination… and of the lasting legacy of another royal family, the Guardias. T and G discuss: * The long (and storied) lineage of the Guardias, from 65 000 000 B.C. to 2300 A.D., including a brief tangent about the lore of Chrono Cross. * The implications of time travel on familiar lineage, in particular, a discussion about how time travel works in the world of Chrono Trigger (but not in depth because holy crap that’s a whole episode on its own). * A comparison of the reign of the Guardia family to reigning governments, empires, and uninterrupted states in the world of… Earth (congratulations Ethiopia on almost 3000 years of uninterrupted statehood)! ## What is “the Race Against Time”? The Race Against Time is an annual charity livestreaming marathon run by [the Nickscast](https://thenickscast.com) where we get as many endings as possible in Chrono Trigger to raise money [for the Alzheimer Society of Canada](https://alzheimer.ca/)! This year’s event will be August 10 and 11th from noon until midnight each day. We hope to outdo all of our previous records and raise $1500 CAD.

Dalton: The Seat of Power [Book 3, Chapter 9]

After restoring most of the Chrono Trigger timeline, our intrepid heroes unfortunately stumble into the path of … Dalton? And Azala?? Thrown into a prison cell on the Blackbird with neither tools nor weapons, how will the party escape and stop whatever nefarious scheme is afoot? Will T and G ever get to go home? There’s only one way out of this sticky situation: a stealth mission. In our world, T and G dig into the enigma that is the “seat” of power himself (in that he’s a big ass), Dalton! What is the deal with Dalton? How is it that a man with such distaste for authority have managed to rise so high in society, especially with such an eclectic fashion sense? Villains in Chrono Trigger! All are time-locked, and arguably there’s no main big bad (Lavos doesn’t count, really) Again, Chrono Trigger as a game of great moments and set pieces, and how it tried to do different things (like the Blackbird) to different effects Editing, scripting, and podcast visual design by Nick Terwoord. Special thanks to Square Enix for making that game that we love, Chrono Trigger ...and for not suing us. Episode Cast Alphabetically, by actor: Artimage in the role of Announcing Soldier Dan Murray in the role of King Dalton Manda Whitney in the role of Empress Azala Nick H in the ...

Ioka and Laruba: The Tribes of 65 Million B.C. [Book 2, Chapter 5]

It’s a hop, skip, and a jump from the Proto Dome to the Keeper’s Dome… if you don’t mind the Sewers, that is. As they make their journey to hopefully discover Balthazar’s lab, the trio encounters a bit of dimensional interference, and the recurrence of a strange voice. Is all well in the world of Chrono Trigger, or is everything starting to unravel? T and G discuss: * The different tribes of 65 000 000 BC! At least two different mysterious groups of humans, and the dinomen… er, Reptites? * Speaking of Tribes, do the Laruba end up becoming the enlightened ones?! Ruling the skies and the earthbound ones below? Is it some sort of self-fulfilling time loop!? * Why dinosaur times? Was it really that good, in the context of the game? Was 65 000 000 BC all that it could have been? ## 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. ## Special Announcement: Livestream for the Cure 4 The 4th Annual Livestream for the Cure (or the Livestream 4 the Cure?) has been scheduled for FORTY-EIGHT HOURS from May 28th thru the 31st, with a small four hour kick-off event scheduled for the evening before to do final tests (and hopefully wrangle in some amazing guests).

Yakra: 13 Generations of Vengeance [Book 1, Chapter 4]

The discovery of a Guardian hairpin leads to new possibilities with the mostly inert (and seemingly multiplying) time gates. After some experiments, the trail goes cold again and the Nicks trace back to where the pin was found in the first place: a record of the villian from the middle ages, Yakra! T and G discuss: * The nature of Yakra. Is he (she? they? it?) a fiend? A shapeshifter like Flea and Spekkio? Or something more sinister… like some spawn of Lavos?! * Tips to beat Yakra quickly (or at least to avoid taking damage). Did you know Yakra counterattacks if you are far away? Now you know! * Their own experiences beating Yakra for the first time, and exploring the Manolia Cathedral in the world of Chrono Trigger ## What is “the Race Against Time”?
