Oh yikes. My first thought is the prehistoric Hunting Grounds.

I completely missed it my first play through and only found it my second time playing the game on a lucky find. It's also north of Ioka village and loops back around in on itself, so you end where you began.

I don't think that's going to be the answer, however.

Not what I was thinking of.

I'm sure I'm completely wrong because I really suck at riddles(Blaine would have killed me, and that is the truth. Ha ha!), but my thought was the End of Time.

I'm not sure how north would work into the End of Time.

Was I too vague with my riddle?

No. Riddles are supposed to be tricky!

Is it the Kingdom of Zeal? Luck led the party there (fated gate created by Lavos in Magus' Keep), the journey of Crono and friends took them north (or rather up) to Zeal, and they'll... wait a minute.

Is it Magus? Magus ended up in Zeal by pure chance after confronting Lavos in 600AD. He traveled north to the Northern Keep on the surviving landmass of the Antiquity period. And he'll meet Lavos again in the final battle.

I can see where you're going with those, but not what I had in mind.

Darn it.

I don't think it's Tata. The first two lines could make sense, but I don't know how he would still meet again at the end.

Now I am literally going to sit down and look at a map of each Chrono Trigger era. North being hint.

I will neither confirm nor deny possibilities not presented as guesses.

Honestly I was just thinking of the line "A lucky find got me here" because they stumble on the End of Time. This is why I'm no good at these things. Ha ha

The Hero's Medal? Do they take that north? I don't remember now.

Hmm, a tricky one, I think.

What comes to mind is that perhaps it's Radical Dreamers related. Due to the Frozen Flame being said to have been in the northern kingdom of Guardia... maybe...

I originally refused to confirm or deny this, but I will now.

I don't think it's Tata. The first two lines could make sense, but I don't know how he would still meet again at the end.

Tata appears in one of the endings. The other two are of course finding the Hero Medal, and traveling to Denadoro Mountains, north of Porre.

Darn it. You're right. I feel silly.

Here's another one:

In the beginning there was only
Large and in charge,
Never changing, ever ending
You make me blue in the face

The Reptites?

The dominant species in prehistory, unable to adapt to the ice age caused them to freeze.
