A castle...?
Why the hell is there a castle inside a supply closet...?


Castle Town is a town in the Dark World. It houses Ralsei's castle, which in turn houses the Fountain of Darkness. There are no inhabitants present apart from Ralsei.

Main Story[edit | edit source]

Kris and Susie first enter Castle Town after they slide down a cliff in ??????, escaping Lancer's attacks. The two heroes enter the town, only to find it deserted, and continue into the castle.

In the castle, they meet a hooded Ralsei, who tells the party of The Prophecy and that the two of them are the Heroes of Light and Delta Warriors mentioned in the prophecy. After hearing the tale, Susie explains that she has no intention of helping the Darkners, stating that it "might even be kind of fun, honestly" if the world is to be destroyed. Before Ralsei can change her mind, Lancer busts in and knocks Ralsei away. After introducing himself to Kris and Susie, Lancer explains that he'll defeat the two of them to make sure they don't go east, their only way home.

Lancer engages the heroes in combat, and is subsequently defeated. He proclaims that, the next time the heroes meet him, they'll be the losers, before leaving the scene. Ralsei then walks back to the heroes, takes off his hood, and reveals his identity to be Ralsei the Prince. Susie declares she'll keep going by herself, and walks out of the castle, into Field.

Ralsei recommends to Kris that they follow Susie, as he guides Kris out of the castle. Just outside the town, Ralsei offers to teach Kris about encounters by having him fight a training Dummy. After Kris completes Ralsei's tutorial, the two of them move towards the "Great Door," which Ralsei seems suprised to see opened. The two of them then proceed to go through the Great Door, into Field, to give chase to Susie.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • All four accessible buildings have the same flavor text. The first Kris visits reads "It looks like a shop, but the door is locked, and no one's inside." The rest simply read "(It's locked.)" The signage displays a sword, a sack, the word "Inn," and a question mark respectively over the four doors despite the matching text.
  • If Kris interacts with the rockslide leading into Castle Town from ??????, Ralsei mentions how he doesn't know how Lancer got up there.[2]
