Fritz = Man who wrote note in 2300 AD, somehow
« on: November 26, 2008, 09:22:03 am »
Somehow Fritz who is almost being executed in 1000 AD is related to the man who wrote the note in 2300 AD. I don't know how, but this time around I didn't save him, and there is NO note in the sewers in 2300 AD. If you leave him alive, there's a note that says how a man can't defeat the monsters and would have preferred the guillotine.

I don't know how it's possible, but these two events are related. Was it maybe a descendant of Fritz? Did Fritz... time travel?

Perhaps he came from Fritz' family line?

Yeah but still. How big is the chance that both Fritz and someone from his family both almost got the guillotine?

It could also be a plothole. Maybe they just made that note as a gameplay element so you know about the monsters.

I always thought that it was strange it talked about a guillotine.

Interesting. Was it the same in the SNES or PSX version?

I don't think so, but I can't say for sure.

Same in the Japanese version, but not in Woolsey's translation.

   I'm gonna give it one final shout!

Fritz may have found the gate in Guardia Forest. Other than that, there's no possible way he lived that long.

Then why is he still in the shop after the note was found?

Is there anything that states that the future date is the exact same as the present date?

I don't think its Fritz. It doesn't make sense A) how would he have time traveled there and still be at the original time period? How did he get all the way to the sewers? "I'd rather have gotten the guillotine" sound like an expression to show how bad the situation is.

That would be the reasonable explanation IF the note was still there when Fritz dies. If you let Fritz die the note disappears. So somehow Fritz existence in 1000 AD affects the note in 2300 AD. I can't explain how, but you can't deny this.

I'm sure if Fritz survived the guillotine he would have told his family members. They probably made reference to the story of Fritz and the guillotine stating that they would rather be in the guillotine than deal with the sewers.

That's what makes all this seem strange, I wanted to say that Fritz wrote the note before he was going to be executed, but that'd mean that he was killed at the hands of the fish-men.

But Laith's explanation is pretty good, I suppose members of the Fritz family have a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I suppose that could be right. He sorta did have a lover so it'd make sense he'd have children as well.

Guess it's a descendant after all. Funny though how two reasonably unimportant events are linked together like that.
