Title: Spoiler - 2 Different Post-Credit Epilogues
Post by: Goatmeal on July 01, 2016, 04:09:15 PM
I wonder how many people playing The King's Challenge know that there are actually _2_ different post-credit epilogue endings?

While similar, the alternate epilogue ending gives a little hint as to the fate of the late Brother Choden, who ran the Crann Naoimh Monastery before his untimely death a while back!

Most people playing the game likely played it as expected/designed: in the final battle, Finn plays the Shield song to protect the Queen, while Brother Kunchen works his Orderly magic to repel the attack.

In that epilogue, the Vesparum and General Tanean are concerned about the Bard who defeated their plans of kidnapping of the Faerie Queen, vowing to keep an eye on Finn in the future...


However, the option ALSO exists to NOT play the Shield song during the time allotted.  If Finn doesn't play the Shield song, Brother Kunchen still steps in to repel the Vesparum attack.

In THIS version of the epilogue, however, the Vesparum reveal that they killed poor Brother Choden as part of their dastardly plans -- to get him out of the way -- but hadn't expected another Monk (Kunchen) to be present during their attack.

No mention is made of the Bard, because in this version of events, he failed to play the Shield song; Finn was merely a spectator/non-entity during the attack and NOT an active participant.


Kudos to the IQ Team for this alternate ending!

While the admission of who killed Brother Choden is certainly informative, I'm sure that the "official" canon will be as designed: that Finn saved the Queen during the attack.   :D

Nice! Glad someone found that. That was really fun putting that together. (Another reason was due to there being no deaths in the game, it really needed an alternate solution to the attack otherwise any "solution" to Finn not playing the song would be really lame.)
