We enter the Elder's room.
Elder: "You witnessed the resurrection of continents at each of the towers. However, it is only the land that is revived. Life remains unborn. Ark, I wish to show you something. We shall go outside."
The Elder asks us to follow him outside, to the east, where a "huge hole" lies.
Is it a portal to the resurrected world?
Before following him, I go to the weavers, where the madam suspects Ark made Elle cry. Elle's crying?
I try to enter, but...
The camera pans over into the next room, where Elle's turned her back to us.
Elle: "I heard you are going far away. I have to send you off with a smile. But I can't. I don't know why... but I can't stop crying..."
She hopes Ark will come back safe.
Elle: "I will wait until that day. I'm sure I can greet you with a smile then, Ark."
We'll miss you, too, Elle...
Terranigma - Part 19a: Sealed Door
Before going east to see what the Elder wanted to show us, we go west and clockwise enter the dungeon that I stumbled upon before heading to the first tower.
After taking care of the security blocking the hallway, Ark levels up again!
At the end of the hall, we enter a room with a sealed door...
Unable to go any further, I leave the dungeon.
