Show Notes

Another experiment put on hold, T’s frustration begins to show. With no foundation in any science, theoretical or otherwise, and no other options on the table, G suggests leveraging the temporal instability and the gate’s whipping in space-time to their advantage. With no other options, the two get to work, inspired by Chrono Trigger’s fast-movin’ fast talkin’ big bro, Johnny. T and G discuss: * When you encounter Johnny in the world of Chrono Trigger, and little bit about how things have changed in the year 2300 AD. * How you can beat Johnny in his race, why he’s a jerk (we already raced for all of Site 32, JUST LET US PASS), and why you might _consider_ coming back to race him again. * Just… trying to understand why in a world of robots bent on killing all humans, Johnny exists at all, or rather, what his true purpose may have been. ## What is “the Race Against Time”?

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”?

The Ashtear Line: Guardia’s Treasured Inventors [Book 1, Chapter 2]

After being transported to Chrono Trigger’s “end of time”, the Nicks have a new challenge to overcome: the self-destruction of their experimental device! Perhaps Gaspar’s repository has some clues to aid them? Or perhaps someone in that family of geniuses, the Ashtears! T and G discuss: * The short (and questionable) lineage of the Ashtear family, including what is known of Banta (ancestor), Taban (father), Lara (mother) and, of course, a bit about Lucca (daughter / genius / protagonist with science on the brain)! * The inventions and developments of the Ashtears, from the relatively mundane (Leene’s bell) to the anachronostically extraordinary (The Telepod / time travel?) * Rampant speculation about the relationship between the Ashtears and the Guardia family, along with a certain lack of other inventors around the globe?! ## What is “the Race Against Time”?
