How did Jowston army reach Senan region on Suikoden I?

Postby onmyoji » Sat Nov 05, 2016 11:09 am

I'm talking about the part when we went to Moravia to save Viktor and Warren. Mathiu told Kasim Hazil that he had manipulated Jowston to attack Moravia. When I look at this map, it seems like there's no way for them to reach Moravia. Unless the map is not accurate. Or is Dana a neutral region? (I assume Dana region belongs to Scarlet Moon)

:EDIT:
The reason I mentioned Dana is because it's the only land area connecting Toran and Dunan.

Don't forget that by the time the game was designed they weren't aware that a follow-up game would exist. So by the time Jowston region's whereabouts were unknown.

Oh okay, I thought they had already planned for a sequel. Thanks! :)

They came through the Badlands. While the journey might be "impossible" for individual travelers, a provisioned army with supply lines could cross. It's been happening across the Sahara for millennia.

I don't think this ever happens with any game. How are they supposed to know where the sales of the first game will be good or bad?

Otherwise they would call it "Suikoden I" when it was released. Not just "Suikoden".

But isn't there a wall that separates Badlands from the deserts? At least, that's what the wiki says. And the wall also exists in the game world map.

A large enough army can find a way past the wall I would imagine... also there is no info stating who exactly built the wall. If it was owned by Jowston then they sould be able to get passed it.
