Castle Exdeath - Exploration/Exploration Dialogue
Background Story[edit | edit source]
Exdeath's Castle is connected to the mainland by the Big Bridge.
Prior to the barrier being activated, Bartz, Lenna, and Faris are captured, and Galuf enters the castle alone to rescue them from Gilgamesh, Exdeath's underling.
Later, Xezat and the party enter the south-east Barrier Tower via an underwater cave, and Xezat sacrifices himself to destroy it. The barrier is destroyed, allowing the party to later enter the castle and confront Exdeath.
The interior appears like that of a regular castle, but once the party reaches a dead end, Krile discovers the castle's appearance just an illusion. Kelger Vlondett, the last Warrior of Dawn, uses his power to break the illusion, which leads to his death. This sacrifice reveals that Exdeath's Castle is actually made out of the corpses of Exdeath's many victims, and this gruesome discovery opens up a path for the party, allowing them to meet Exdeath himself.

- Ah, there's something over there! it looks like he dropped something.
- This looks like... a sword. So that's what was inside the chest.
- It must be one heck of a sword! The strongest sword, even!
- ...Come to think of it, doesn't it look an awful lot like that one famous sword?
