first thing that i thought when i read this was: are you serious?! RESURRECT 104 people???
traditionally, the Suikoden series has been fairly realistic about death even in the fantasy world - there have been a few miracles that happened with the power of true runes in order to revive someone or save them from imminent death. the successful gathering of 108 Stars of Destiny also allowed the Tenkai's true rune not to kill the bearer once. so what's up with this plot? it seems death will be extremely trivial since these 4 main characters will somehow have the power to revive everybody they knew and their mothers.
secondly, i find it strange that you will have to explore different places to revive the SoD, because..... aren't there screenshots of the game showing like all of them dead in one place??
i don't know how they plan on developing the story to work out, but so far it sounds weird.
