Since there is actually a plot in the game, it seems odd no one is discussing it. There are several interesting things to note in the game that aren't explained up to the current point in the story. 1: Your dad is missing an arm and has a scar on his face. How? 2: Vilya comments that you're 'that' kid, she won't let you pass even if you could pay the toll. Someone paid her off to stop you? It can't be because you have Bag, the Ferrets seem surprised when he pops out. 3: Aline's grave is in the Pumpkin Woods graveyard, the Flying Fortressis beyond PW. This seems to imply that at one point the PW wasn't cursed. The game mentions that the forest 'cast this curse upon itself'. The implication appears to be that the forest doesn't want anyone reaching the FF. Could it be Aline's spirit that cast the curse to prevent anyone from awakening Gun-D4m / Amalet, and Bishop needs items to break the curse so they can be awakened? 4: Farhmamera is identified as the great enemy on the Flying Fortress monitors, how it ravaged the countryside and slaughtered untold numbers. Another monitor expresses curiousity that monsters drop cards, but carpenters don't get Hammer Cards and despite all wars, a Human card has never been found. Was Farhmamera a Collector who became obsessed with finding that 'final' drop and decided to start killing people to locate that one elusive card? 5: Protoman identifies his enemy as 'Sentient Container', not you. You're carrying Bag. Why does he want to destroy Bag, unless he lumps Bag in with Amalet by being of the same 'species'? 6: Your father appears to be someone of significance, given he has some sway with Ivy and Naniva expresses shock at his identity. He stops Naniva before she can reveal any information about his past. Bonus: Unfounded conspiracy theory. You kill Gigaslime without a single drop. Miraculously a single slime drops from the sky when you're about to be dismissed. Was this luck / skill as a Collector, or did someone rig the exam to put you in first place? Any other plot details that seem curious to anyone?
