^1) Chinese culture wise, why does the snake demon do such a thing? he has the fox wife after all?

What's the purpose of these women? are these supposed to be like concubines for the emperor? (except it's for the snake man)

...only in the drama. In the game they were captured to serve them (which sounds less "evil" and you even have their daughter as a "good" person in PAL2) :)

Merry christmas everyone!

some new questions:
1) Referring to the old dos version, are techniques learned randomly? I recall playing one time I learned the circle attack right after fighting the first bush monster (before I even get to the drunk guy)

2) When you defeat the big toad the first time (right after the thief area), you can talk to its stomach and it will open and give you an item called "5XX" (can't read the last 2 words), what does this item do?

3) is XY an alcoholic? it seems to me each time he goes to a restaurant he asks "is there wine?" ^^ do the girls scold him because of this?

Nope. Magics are only learnt when you reached a certain level.

> 2) When you defeat the big toad the first time (right after the thief area), you can talk to its stomach and it will open and give you an item called "5XX" (can't read the last 2 words), what does this item do?

By equipping that item you can protect yourself from any of the poisons.

hehee.. I know what you're referring to.. I believe it's a bug- the same thing happened to my sis when she played it- it's not suppose to happen but u got lucky (and a huge advantage!)




3) is XY an alcoholic? it seems to me each time he goes to a restaurant he asks "is there wine?" ^^ do the girls scold him because of this?

I didn't think he was an alcoholic, didnt really pay close attention to those details ^_^;
men drinking wine in those days were very common and normal.

I was reading the wiki page whistler recommended in the other thread about pal 2. I noticed it has been updated lately and as I was reading yueru's profile, it says "Lin takes on a very strong liking for Li and vows not to be married to anyone except for him"

Just wanted to know, when did this happen?

and also, in pal 2, as the protagonist meets the girls, does he recognize them? as in does he get friendly because they are related to the heroes of pal1?

I think that's something she said when she was leaving her home.

nope :)

basically the Fox Demon was utilizing him at the beginning and Xiaohu didn't know who she was, and Shen Qishuang is not related with PAL1 at all.

Yup, it was in the game, when Xiao Yao rushes off to find Ling Er, and that's what YueRu says her to father before chasing after Xiao Yao.

I'm pretty sure she does.
She is the daughter of a hero afterall, and she often comes off the island to the village to play.

They were captured to serve the couple and to clean up around their huge mansion XD

Poor Su Mei though... Grew up without her parents...

Her parents don't really kill except when attacked...

...hahahahahaa, it sounds so funny the way you say it xP The Party actually cut the toad's stomach open and took out a Five Poison Pearl. It is known to cure all kinds of poison. In the game, you can equip it and it'll protect you from being poisoned. It's really helpful.

Just wanted to know, when did this happen?


Yue Ru never actually said something like that. At least not in the XP version which is the one I played.

2) in pal1 who are the people you can battle and still lose to? some that comes to mind is the eyepatch guy, yueru's father, butterfly girl and the ghost (the green one in snow tower)??


In the XP version, only Shi Zhang Lao and the Demon Hag in the dream of the beginning of the game are unbeatable. (Well, Shi Zhang Lao might be beatable if you can figure out how to kill him within six rounds...)

6) does the family of yue ru know about jinyuan's feelings for yueru?


Yes.

1) who is the frog lady? (one of the boss fights before spider)


She's a boss who blocked the Party's path. She hates humans with a passion...

3) at the spider place, the yellow guy obviously failed to clear the scene, but did the drunk master do anything? cuz he was drunk and collapsed


The Sword Immortal of Wine managed to reveal the butterfly spirit's true form. That was why XY and YR were able to see her wings and such. The Wine Sword Immortal claimed that he didn't actually collapse from being drunk, but that passing out was actually part of the process of making the butterfly spirit reveal her true form.

can you tell me what's the difference between the two whore houses? one where there's 2 floors (i think that's the prostitute) and the other one is a bath house?? and what goes on inside exactly? can you get xiao yao to particpate? XD


One is a brothel, one is a bathhouse. Xiao Yao cannot participate in the bath house and Yue Ru cannot participate in the brothel.

2) When you pick up the red wine bottle at the thief's place you get captured by the chinese police and they ask you a bunch of things. I noticed while they talk, yueru never says anything, only xy tries to defend himself. If yueru supposedly loves him, why didn't she try to defend him? (I can't read chinese... so please explain)


I didn't get this part either... If Yue Ru loves him, then she should at least say or try to do something instead of just watching Xiao Yao getting his ass beat -_- She didn't even ask him if he was okay!

All of my answers are based from my experience from playing the XP version, so some answers may not be exactly the ones you're looking for, but I'm pretty sure they're close enough.
