Show Notes

As the Nicks ascertain their mortality (alive), good luck finally goes their way after managing to stabilize a gate, albeit a small one. Of its own accord, their slapdash machine summons… the instruction manual for the Dragon Tank? T and G discuss: * What is going on in the world of Chrono Trigger when you face off against the Dragon tank? * How to beat the Dragon tank (and other mechanics of it). Protip: Start with the head. * Rampant speculation about the construction of the Dragon Tank, in particular, who might have built it (could all the inventors in Guardia please raise their hands? No, not you Ashtears *wink*) ## What is “the Race Against Time”? The Race Against Time is an annual charity livestreaming marathon run by [the Nickscast](https://thenickscast.com) where we get as many endings as possible in Chrono Trigger to raise money [for the Alzheimer Society of Canada](https://alzheimer.ca/)! This year’s event will be August 10 and 11th from noon until midnight each day. We hope to outdo all of our previous records and raise $1500 CAD.

The Gate Key: A Preamble on Time-Space Gates [Book 1, Chapter 5]

With no other leads, G rests on the hard floor at the end of time and has a familiar dream of the beginning of a different journey. That dream is cut short with an announcement: amidst Gaspar’s books lies a volume about the Gate Key, the Gates, and possibly a clue to get the two of them home! T and G discuss: * What exactly are the gates, and how do they work? Did you know that they are ‘locked’ to the same point in space at different times? We didn’t! * Rampant speculation as to why the gates exist. They seem to dissipate after Lavos is defeated, and also appear at mysterious times, under mysterious circumstances * Their own experiences TRAVELING THROUGH TIME FOR THE FIRST TIME HOLY CRAP THIS IS AMAZING ## What is “the Race Against Time”?

Curios and Trinkets: The Small Things [Book 3, Appendix A]

No Chrono Trigger? No, we’re back in the past, before the initial experiment! T has been putting in some late nights, but to what end? (a portal machine, we covered that) And do we know who has been stealing parts from the office? It’s all coming together, as is their lovely Final Fantasy 6 audio drama! T and G discuss… well, honestly, a lot of our favourite moments big and (mostly) small from the game, including dredging up past unsolved mysteries (and alluding to future ones)! Also, they talk a little bit about what a more direct Chrono Trigger sequel might have looked like, and what it means for a game to be a spiritual successor of Chrono Trigger (if that means anything at all)! Editing, scripting, and podcast visual design by Nick Terwoord. Special thanks to Square Enix for making that game that we love, Chrono Trigger ...and for not suing us. Episode Cast Alphabetically, by actor: Ari in the role of Terra, and her fictional self Artimage in the role of Emperor Gestahl Dan Murray in the role of Kefka Nick G in the role of his fictional self, and discussion host Nick H in the role of “the Boss” Nick T in the role of his fictional self, soldier, narrator, and discussion host Nick Z in the role of his fictional self, and “Old Man” Musical Credits [00:06] Wake up, T! ...

Palace of the Sun: The Power of Radiance [Book 2, Chapter 9]

With world-ending calamity nearly at bay, a critical decision need be made, one that could alter the course of history. Lucca’s mastery of science means that the temporal distortion can be stopped, and save the world of Chrono Trigger, but G must decide whether it is more important to make his way home… or risk it all to save his friend. T and G discuss: * The surprisingly relevant (but entirely understated?!) origins of the sun stone; how you can find it in the story, what it means for the world of Chrono Trigger, and WHY NO ONE TALKS ABOUT IT?! Seems like a big deal, really! * The Sun Stone as a metaphor for… greed? Man’s reliance on oil? Would be really nice to talk with one of the developers about this. Could have been a bigger part of the story for sure! * The weirdness of all of Chrono Trigger’s sidequests. They just threw tradition out the window with this one, eh? ## Where to find us The Zeal Archives is a [Nickscast](https://thenickscast.com) production and can be found wherever fine podcasts are listened to, or at the source at [zealarchives.com](https://zealarchives.com) For news and other updates about the podcast, you can follow us on [Twitter](https://twitter.com/zealarchives) or [Facebook](https://facebook.com/zealarchives) @zealarchives For more about the hosts, Nick T and Nick G, check out [the Nickscast](https://thenickscast.com) on [Twitter](https://twitter.com/thenickscast), [Facebook](https://facebook.com/thenickscast), [Instagram](https://instagram.com/thenickscast), or [YouTube](https://youtube.com/thenickscast), all @thenickscast. ## What is the “Race Against Time”?
