Somehow I have the feeling that you've actually written the entire game's script.
This is my signature. It is a work of art.

Lunar 2 WAS originally planned to be a direct sequel with the Lunar 1 characters in it as well and playable, but the developers decided to set Lunar 2 in the distant future instead. The 1000 years seems to be in the US version only, though; the suggestion in the Lunar I+II artbook is that there were only 500-600 years between the two games (because that's what Nall's age is given as).

Someone remind me, does it say somewhere (TSS?) that Althena reincarnates every 500 years? I don't go by that particularly, as there are (I think) other things that contradict it, but that would explain why the Japanese game, at least, would be around that length of time after Lunar 1. Althena would be expected to show up around then, and thus the impostor Althena would not be a surprise.

Walking School has a direct reference to the 500-year cycle. KF

Aha. That explains why I didn't have a more vivid recollection of it but thought it was in a game. Thanks. I wonder if that time cycle was always in mind or just put in that game to sound interesting, like the magic empire in TSS being 1000 years ago or Grissel/Grimzol/Inca God/Karal being confined 5000 years ago.

(I wonder if that's some record for number of names of the same entity? And a fairly incidental one in only one version, to boot.)
