New dungeon challenges: Pure disappointment comes before pure horror

Word reached my ears, that the Stone Vigil had yet again been invaded my dangerous foes and it was up to me to slay them for good.

I gathered with a bunch of strong adventurers and slaughthered everything.

In the end, a spikey turtoise was awaiting us but using the cannons, we quickly destroyed it.

And that was it.

Very disappointing.

Very boring.

Very nothing new.

That was when I was approached by a little Lalafell boy.

Fact is, that Paiyo and Edda had been adventuring buddies with 2 other friends. One was the fiancé Avere of Edda who had been died during a tough fight.

And now, Paiyo had received an invitation to the wedding of Edda and the deceased Avere! That couldn’t be…?

I checked out the tomb. It was broken and destroyed. The body was gone.

I ventured out to Tam Tara where Paiyo suspected Edda to be.

It was a spooky place. Candles and coffins were placed all through the tunnels and rooms.

I felt really insecure but with mag by my side, I knew that nothing would harm me!

Not even monsters with hundreds of faces would scare me anymore!

We stumbled over Paiyo! He had been captured by some evil demon who wanted to use his soul…

In general, we came across strange enemies. Most seemed like they had been experimented on…

And then, in the middle of a gigantic candle circle, we found her: Edda.

But she wasn’t alone.

By her side, a terrible creature was waiting…

    Tam Tara Hard Mode is probably my favourite dungeon in Eorzea! I can’t help but feel sorry for Edda, but my god, did they ever got Fatal Frame on that dungeon!? Especially the last little cutscene…

    I’m currently trying to put all the pieces of the story together, and I’ve got most of it posted already, but I still feel like I’m missing something, haha…
