El Ciclo

Jump to: navigation, search

El Ciclo (formerly Litorud) is a town located on the continent far to the northwest of Estard Island. It is accessible from both Greenthumb Gardens and Emberdale by a bridge.

Past[edit]

Upon arriving, the party takes notice of the bizarre architecture, apparently designed by an oddball named Pomposo. They also take note that the town does not seem to be in any immediate danger, compared to the other islands they've visited in the past. The party learns that a girl named Antonia is staying overnight at the doctor's since she is frequently getting injured. They learn that a bridge designed by Pomposo is set to have its grand opening the next day, so they decide to spend the night at the inn. The next morning, Antonia appears to have healed completely overnight, and the party manages to save her before she injures herself. They then decide to visit the grand opening at the bridge, but are told by the guards that it's the next day and to spend the night at the inn.

Present[edit]

The town in the president is now home to the Excellence Grading Organisation, which ranks people based on Strength, Wisdom, and Style. A number of new buildings have appeared in the town with the same style as Pomposo's architecture.

Notable Residents[edit]

  • Antonia - A girl who works at the local inn who is incredibly clumsy. She seems to get injured frequently, much to the displeasure of the innkeeper.
  • Pomposo - An eccentric architect who's obsessed with time. He designed the clock tower in town and the new bridge that's about to be inaugurated, along with a number of other buildings. He has taken to living in his studio located to the far east of town.

Trivia[edit]

  • The colorful and eccentric architecture of El Ciclo is a reference to famed Barcelona architect Antoni Guadí, who utilized ceramics, stained glass, and other materials to design buildings with organic shapes inspired by natural forms.
  • In the localization of the 3DS remake, El Ciclo is now Spanish-themed, and many of the characters have Spanish names and intersperse Spanish in their dialogue. The name El Ciclo itself means "The Cycle" in Spanish. This is fitting considering many of the buildings are modeled after Gaudí's style.
