I'll cut to the chase.
you heard in episodes one and five. Much like episode three, episode
five introduces backstories on the Triangle War and Reycralibur's
origin. I am NOT in the mood to redo "The Rouge Rogue" AGAIN, so just
forget about what you heard. There was no Teal-Crest tournament and
there is no Squire Academy. As far as the Triangle War goes, General
Gorous' backstory is the only one that matters. But, other than that, it
is of no importance to the plot. As for episode one, Reycralibur didn't
JUST appear after a decade, but you don't need me to tell you to forget
that load of crap. Do you?
I'll tell you
one thing, the story is easily the most frustrating part about working
on the series. I wanted to create a lore behind the series. To that end,
I also incorporated little bits of information about the world of
Reycralibur through the cold openings in season one. I've also tried
writing the rest of the story in advance, as well as rewatching previous
episodes to avoid having to do retcons. But, the more I go on, the more
boring and complicated the story sounds. No amount of lampshading will
make it better. In short, the story itself is the reason why it takes so
long to make one episode. Because, after all this time, I don't know
where to go next!
So, from this point onward, I'm going to go
back to telling a straightforward story. No more flashbacks, no more
gambits, no more ass pulls. All you need to know is: There is a sword,
it's been split into three pieces, the bad guys want the three pieces.
So the good guys are trying to find them all. You can also forget
everything you learned in the cold openings (yes, even the episode three
remake) as that's basically a bunch of mambo jumbo. As far as how the
sword was split into three pieces and, of course, Skyru's true identity,
you will learn all of that in episode twelve.
Wanna know the worst part? At some point, I'm gonna have to remake episode one AND episode five before moving on to the final episodes. Keep in mind, that's AFTER I get through this episode. ...This why I'm glad this series is almost over.
