I'm a pixel artist and an indie game developer. Being quite fan of the series for a while, I'm actually planning to make a fangame for it (which will take place after the events in Ys Origin and before I&II). Although I don't think I'm knowledgeable enough yet. So I need to confirm some information with you wise folks. Some of these may sound dumb and invoke questions like "how can you call yourself an Ys fan and not know this?", but when I played the games, there were quite a lot of details that were lost due to my lack of knowledge of the context. So I hope you guys forgive me.
Also I haven't finished Ys I&II yet, and I plan to do so soon. Just figured I should asked you wise folks first to get some basic information of the lore down and start thinking of ideas.
#1: So what exactly happened to the floating kingdom of Ys where Solomon Shrine is located at after Ys Origin again? In Ys I&II it seems to have landed back on Esteria on the surface. What caused this to happen? Does it possibly have something to do with Dark Fact murdering all descendants of the Six Priests?
#2: Is there any solid information on what happened to Hugo and Toal after Ys Origin? Like, was it mentioned anywhere that the Fact lineage was continued by either Hugo or Toal up until Ys I&II?
#3: At the end of Ys Origin, Toal spoke to one of the two Roda Trees, and it said that it'd pass on his "legacy to someone worthy of it". When Hugo asked what that was about, Toal just said it was a "safety net" passed on to future generations. Any ideas on what this legacy is? Did Adol receive it 700 years later?
So far these are what I need to confirm. I'm very excited about this project and want to make something memorable to promote one of the few series I love that are unfortunately still pretty obscure. Really hope you guys will help me. You fine folks on here are doing a very, very great job of providing valuable information on the series. Thank you very much and please keep it up!
