I found this ages ago and made a small mention to this in Tech’s Riddle thread, but after realizing that my chances of encountering this again on my own is extremely low including that I’m not able to visit Palo Town most of the time to check, I think it’s about time to make this post and share it.
I don’t think a lot of people pay attention to many NPCs’ final words on execution, most who are there anyways are people who would interrupt it. From the few that I saw, most of them don’t seem really have big lore revelations, most just reveals the personality of the criminal and nothing more. Some are depressed, some angry, etc etc. It seems the ‘final words’ of NPCs on execution are purely based off of their randomly generated personality.
However, I had an encounter with a very specific dialogue when I just so happened to be talking to an NPC in Palo Town (this was before revamp of the town). And when I just so happened to take a glance at the chat, I caught glimpse of the ‘final words’ dialogue from the execution that happened to be taking place…
If I were to take a guess, I’m guessing this dialogue was probs by criminals with ‘Insanity’
I have to admit, I was kind of spooked by it. Not just because of the text, but who I was talking to at the time. I just so happened to be talking to Finlay Alford, the NPC that talks about the ‘Wrath of the Gods’, just taking notes for lore and stuff. Then an NPC dialogue comes in, mentioning the ‘rage of the gods’… Pretty darn lucky that I saw this, since there’s no scroll for chat. If I didn’t just so happen look at the exact time I did, I would’ve missed even one line.
I wanted to try to encounter this again since I wasn’t sure if I did got the whole dialogue (looking back at screenshots now, I most likely did). However, I never encountered it again.
Sharing this now because I’m certain people here have seen more executions and have more free time to find it again, or even find more dialogue that are similar. Or we can also just discuss what the hell this means. Post will get too big at this point if I add my own thoughts here, so I’ll probs talk about it somewhere in the thread.
So thoughts on this?
