[FAQ] Stuck in Obel? Not sure what to do? READ BEFORE ASKING

Postby Oppenheimer » Tue Sep 13, 2005 7:24 am

There is a common problem where after you defeat the Koolook fleet and hear about the Rune of Punishment there doesn't seem to be any way to advance the story.

There's a hidden objective, recruiting Cedric (or 2 other optional recruits, but this thread is about Cedric)

There are two different ways to recruit Cedric. The first:
- when you are recruiting people onto your ship while escaping from the island (the same time as when you're recruiting Dr. Yu) find Credric (large blonde hair boy) and recruit him

The other option:
- make sure Louise is not in your party (as support)
- stay at the inn in Obel and talk to people standing around outside
- learn that Cedric skipped out on paying his bill
- trigger various cut scenes showing him running away until you chase him all the way back to the cave/headquarters
- once in the headquarters talk to Louise (the bartender) and she should reveal that he's there

Now you should be able to go to the war room and continue the plot.

For more information you can visit/post in the following thread:

I've got a different problem about being stuck in Obel. Could you read my topic reguarding Perrault and please help if you can?

Oh my gosh. Thank you so much! I posted the question on gamespot.com and someone replied to it with this link. Lol. It's so helpful. I've been battling this problem for about a week (fifteen hours of game play) and it's been brutal. Just wanted to say thanks. ^^

Now i'm here at this point after defeating 3rd Kooluk's fleet but this time i want to finish the game without any optional characters (except Ornan,since you need 1 optional character to trigger the scene with Lilin,i suppose...somebody please confirm this in the new thread i opened yesterday),so i don't want to recruit Cedric since he is optional.


But strange thing is,that i remember clearly that i've recruited Cedric with the 2nd way,during evacuating the citizens of Obel,7 years ago when i first played the game,and i didn't know that Reinhold,Mitsuba and Rita are actually early recruits. I just learned from here. So it seems that i've recruited Ornan and Perrault. So in order to proceed at this point you need 2 optional recruits or is there any other way,because i want to avoid optional characters as much as i can?

Are you sure about that? Because I remember that one time I forgot to recruit him, and I was so angry after realizing it. (Couldn't recruit Rachel and needed to restart the whole game)
Or did they changed it in the PAL versions, so you could advance the story, without recruiting him?

Actually you need a minimum number of recruits in order to proceed.It doesn't mind if it's Cedric or not...i checked it out by myself. You have to get at least 2 optional characters in order to proceed...it doesn't matter who are they.

Well at least in PAL version...i don't know about the NTSC one

Ah thanks, that makes sense, since I always recruit Mitsuba and Reinhold early on.
I should play with a faqs the next time, I always have a tendency to miss this idiot...

I updated the original post to include the point about the two other recruits.

I am stuck now here as well.

I also want to do a minimum recruit run until I meet Deborah to write down her lines that say where all recruits are waiting for me.

I recruited Ornan the moment it was possible and Cedric because both are missable recruits. But I still cannot advance the story beyond this point.

EDIT: Ok, I advanced. It simply skips the cutscene at your HQ, the other scene will be triggered when you go outside. This is just weird.

Just a question.

Do you have to recruit every citizen who's willing to go when you escape from Obel? I remember i forgot to recruit the man appearing in the docks. But I recruited Yu, who's supposed to be needed. This man first he says "Let me think about it.". And didn't recruit him. When I was heading back to the ship, Flare stopped me. So I wonder who among those citizens is needed or not.

The recruitable SODs don't need to be recruited

I think you need all the citizens for the evacuation.
