Breath of Fire III: Of Gods and Dragons

Foreword

.

.

To those who played Breath of Fire III:

In this novelisation, I'll be following the storyline of the game closely, but it'll deviate from the main storyline. Yes, I'll follow the events, such as boarding the ship to get to so-and-so, but the truth behind the happenings of major events will be changed in hopes of filling the plot holes. Some other events are changed to suit my needs (you'll be able to see some of the game's conversations though), and hopefully I've done my best in adding more emotions to all scenes.

.

To those who haven't played Breath of Fire III:

Well, if you don't mind spoilers (or if you just want to read for the fun of it), you don't have to worry because I try to describe everything. One of my friends hasn't touched the game before and she understands it well enough, so I know my novelisation served one of its purposes.

.

To those who have/haven't played Breath of Fire and/or Breath of Fire II:

Yes, I'll be using the idea that BoF, BoF2 and BoF3 are a trilogy in chronological order. However, even though there may be bits and pieces from BoF (not BoF2, since I'm not too familiar with the storyline), they don't present any spoilers… I hope.

.

To those who have played Breath of Fire IV:

I'm also one of the players who support the idea that BoF4 is the prequel of BoF (yes, the very first one), but this story I'm writing disregards BoF4 as a prequel when I write this story. So no references from that game are used in this novelisation, and that means no Fou-Lu!

.

To those who have played Breath of Fire V: Dragon Quarter:

I think somewhere along the line, Capcom stated that BoF5: DQ takes place in an alternate universe compared to BoF 1 – 4, so you don't have to worry about seeing any spoilers about that here. I wouldn't be able to even if I wanted to. xP

.

To every reader in general:

As stated in my profile, I've a tendency to write longish chapters (ranging from 16 pages to 19 pages per chapter, with spacing between paragraphs) except for prologues, interludes and epilogues (which have varying lengths), so if you don't like long chapters, this novelisation isn't for you! Though the length of the chapter is normally caused by numerous scenes rather than over-descriptions (I'd like to think so)… but I hope you like reading this story anyway!
