  • At one point Pia may give you a ring called "Pia's Ring" that confers regeneration. If she had a ring of regeneration all along, why didn't she use it on the quest we were just on together where she kept getting wounded and sucking up all your potions?
    • Probably this ring is Powered By Love. Or Friendship, depending on which version of ring Princess gets. And would not work for Pia herself.
    • In latest version Pia has this ring on her initially, so it's not named "Pia's Ring" before she gifts it to Princess.
  • How come so many pages on this wiki mention this mod, but so few actually link to the page? Seriously. I had to find it through the search after seeing so many linkless examples.
    • It's fixed now with what I could find but you know, you could have just edited the pages yourself to fix it. ;)
  • So... whatever happened to Vico+The Princess and their baby? Was she actually slammed down on a table and forced to have an abortion, or was she ever even really pregnant? I'm confused. I kind of hope it was the latter, as the former is very VERY depressing to me...
    • The pregnancy premise only comes up when Vico is with the Princess for the rest of the game. She is inflicted with a demon plague the moment Hyath "kisses" her and kills her later. IIRC, since Arto is in league with Hyath, they trap that plague in a ring, restore the princess, terminate her unborn child and warp the reality around her with the entire "My father is alive, he wants me to marry Arto and ally with the Dhorn". And since one of your party members became a Dhorn, he is able to nick that ring and save you as well, giving you the list of possible outcomes for the ending.
    • If the princess was in a relationship with her other possible love interests or none at all, the pregnancy plot is not brought up at all.
    • But it's the 14th century... how could they even know she was pregnant? And how could they tear it out of her uterus without killing her or causing so much damage that she'd be sterile forever? And how the hey did the freaky surgery with stitching her hymen back up work? Again, this is the 14th century... that kind of stretches my willing suspension of disbelief. Mind you, there is such a surgical procedure in Real Life, but it wasn't available until the 20th century. And it's pretty pointless and ridiculous anyway, because the stitching usually just falls apart in a matter of hours.
    • Bellissarios Maxim. It is still part of a fantasy world where demons can control anyone because of true names. The Princess' pregnancy wasn't depicted as in its mid or late trimesters ala Juno, so it could be just as an easy miscarriage as the cliche'd bleeding down the leg.
