Before their hopeful return to their universe, T tries one last time to consult with a master of war (and magic), Spekkio.T and G discuss:Crono, Marle, Lucca, and Robo’s first arrival at the end of time (after violating the Conservation of Time theorem), time’s point of least resistance, and meeting that Master of War, Spekkio!Trivia about Spekkio in the world of Chrono Trigger: Did you know you can encounter Spekkio as a Frog? We’ve played the games more than a dozen times and have only achieved this once!Rampant speculation as to what exactly Spekkio is (and the mysterious Q-continuum-esque circumstances as to how it may have acquired the title, “Master of War”…And that’s it for this book!

The R-Series: Human Extermination Squad [Book 1, Chapter 8]
The Zeal Archives
After a near fatal encounter activating the gate mechanism (and almost summoning Lavos, potentially), the T and G are out of ideas, Trapped in another world with no way out, the Nicks have a heart to heart and look towards the future: literally. Perhaps the R-Series of robots is a good place to start?T and G discuss:What the factory is like when you encounter the R-Series, and what we know of them as a set of robots.How to defeat six bosses with only two party members? Yikes. Chrono Trigger, this doesn’t seem fair.What it was like to see one of your party members be taken away, and thrown out like literal garbage (RIP Robo; the best katakana speaking robot friend).What is “the Race Against Time”?The Race Against Time is an annual charity livestreaming marathon run by the Nickscast where we get as many endings as possible in Chrono Trigger to raise money for the Alzheimer Society of Canada!

Johnny: The Man, The Machine [Book 1, Chapter 7]
The Zeal Archives
Another experiment put on hold, T’s frustration begins to show. With no foundation in any science, theoretical or otherwise, and no other options on the table, G suggests leveraging the temporal instability and the gate’s whipping in space-time to their advantage. With no other options, the two get to work, inspired by Chrono Trigger’s fast-movin’ fast talkin’ big bro, Johnny.T and G discuss:When you encounter Johnny in the world of Chrono Trigger, and little bit about how things have changed in the year 2300 AD.How you can beat Johnny in his race, why he’s a jerk (we already raced for all of Site 32, JUST LET US PASS), and why you might consider coming back to race him again.Just… trying to understand why in a world of robots bent on killing all humans, Johnny exists at all, or rather, what his true purpose may have been.What is “the Race Against Time”?The Race Against Time is an annual charity livestreaming marathon run by the Nickscast where we get as many endings as possible in Chrono Trigger to raise money for the Alzheimer Society of Canada!

The Zeal Archives
As the Nicks ascertain their mortality (alive), good luck finally goes their way after managing to stabilize a gate, albeit a small one. Of its own accord, their slapdash machine summons… the instruction manual for the Dragon Tank?T and G discuss:What is going on in the world of Chrono Trigger when you face off against the Dragon tank?How to beat the Dragon tank (and other mechanics of it). Protip: Start with the head.Rampant speculation about the construction of the Dragon Tank, in particular, who might have built it (could all the inventors in Guardia please raise their hands? No, not you Ashtears wink)What is “the Race Against Time”?The Race Against Time is an annual charity livestreaming marathon run by the Nickscast where we get as many endings as possible in Chrono Trigger to raise money for the Alzheimer Society of Canada!
