Welcome, ladies and gentleman, to another riveting installment of storytime with Mabinogi
. You might remember that last week, we got an exclusive look at episode one
's Iria Saga, and things were not off to a terribly smooth start for our protagonists. After going through a great deal of trouble to assist the shaman Akule in a magic ritual, the player stand-in discovers his work is for naught as a gargantuan black dragon interrupts the ceremony. Akule presumably sacrificed himself to allow our hero to escape, charging him with looking after his apprentice Millia. Bummer.
Considering episode two is called "Hero's Return: The Trap," we don't have high hopes that things are about to get much better. But we don't want to spoil anything for you. If you're a Mabinogi
player, remember that you can follow along with the Iria Saga in-game as well. But if you're just here for the story, then click on past the cut to see episode two in full.
