Show Notes

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”? 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.

The Masamune: The Relic that Ended an Era [Book 2, Chapter 4]

To say that their stay at the end of time, or even 2300 AD, has been strange would be a bit of an understatement… After finding a safe way to traverse the wastes of the future, G and T’s tempers begin to flare. But before things can get too heated, an enemy appears! Will they be able to leverage their knowledge of the world of Chrono Trigger and defeat it? And what is with that strange noise?! T and G discuss: * The history of that most famous sword! No, the other sword… NO the one in Chrono Trigger! Including how it made its way from 12000 BC to 600 AD… probably! * How to defeat that jolly boss, Masa and Mune, and Masamune! Including some sweet tricks for speedrunners and lore that is probably hinted at in game but we weren’t paying attention. * What exactly is/are Masa and Mune? Are they trapped in the sword? Was Cyrus worthy of the blade? Seriously, for such an important part of the game, they certainly play fast and loose with its details (and its importance)! ## 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 ...

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).

Principles of Time: Complications of Temporal Locomotion [Book 2, Appendix A]

And that night, huddled around a campfire in an unknown future, four friends sat and told the tail (sorry, _tale_) of how the latest chapter of an epic fight for survival had finally come to a close. Though much was uncertain, for now, they cloud rest easy now that the universe was safe, and the problems of the world of Chrono Trigger could be left for another day. ...Or could they? T and G discuss: * Time Travel! It’s… complicated? Like, really complicated. We try to wrap our heads around how it is supposed to work in the world of Chrono Trigger (and even a bit of Chrono Cross), even though it hurts our heads a bit. * Common tropes, techniques, and mechanics used in time travel in other media, in particular, movies! Turns out, lots of works use time travel… and sometimes it is used really effectively (and sometimes it’s just lazy, looking at you Back to the Future) ...
