"The lost land of Lemuria is within your reach..."
Those words, found in a small booklet on 'games you might like if you liked this one' are actually what drew me to buy Golden Sun: The Lost Age in the first place. If it weren't for Lemuria, I probably never would have discovered the amazing series that is Golden Sun.
And wow, I still vividly remember how huge my drive was to discover this "lost land." When I found out Piers was from Lemuria I flipped out. When I found Yallam I spent a long time memorizing the songs the children sang. "If you want to go to the Sun, if you want to go to the Sun..."
I tried to get through the Sea of Time way before I had the Trident.
I still vividly remember the night I finally finished forging it and actually beat Poseidon - it had been time for bed HOURS before, but I had been far too excited by the thought of getting to Lemuria to sleep that night. I hid my GameBoy under my pillow to play it past midnight. I think it was 2 am when I finally sailed through those clouds for the first time, and saw the little island waiting in the center of the calm zone.
I will never forget how happy that sight made me - about as happy as I'm sure it made Felix's battle-weary party.
I tried to capture that sense of awe and wonder here, in this painting. I hope you like it.
What are your happy memories from playing Golden Sun?
That aside, this is my entry for the
Locations Contest! Thank you SO much for all the extensions. Schoolwork has been taking most of my time, and this was still sort of rushed because of that, but I felt a need to create it anyway.
