—Manual Description for Succession

Succession is a gameplay mechanic in Romancing SaGa 2. Since the story requires frequent passages of time, succession involves the player controlling several player characters in order to complete the game. Succession often overlaps with the generation mechanics of the game.

Mechanics

Conditions for Succession

If any of the following three conditions occur, the current emperor will be succeeded. Heirs will also change depending how the reigning emperor came to leave the throne.

Condition Description
Emperor's LP is reduced to 0 When the emperor dies after LP is reduced to 0, one of the remaining party members will be the heir.
Party is defeated in battle When the entire party is defeated in battle, four random characters will be available to become heir.
Many years have passed When a long period of time passes due to an event, four random characters will be available to become heir.

Succession Procedures

If succession is required due to one of the above conditions, use the following steps to select a new emperor. Selecting an heir is an extremely important process in the game.

Procedure Description
View Candidates When succession is required, a candidate list will appear as shown on the left. Use the D-pad/Left stick to select a character. Confirm with the A button to go to the next screen.
Check Candidates The status window of the selected character will appear, so look over the details and decide whether the heir is fit for the throne or not. Use the L/R buttons to switch between candidates.
After Choosing After selecting an heir, the inheritance ceremony will take place in the throne room. The new emperor will not have allies, so party members must be recruited.

Story

The first emperor of Avalon, Leon, brings about succession by learning of the Inheritance ability from a seer. As Leon passes away, his abilities and experiences pass on to his son, Gerard, who uses this power to vanquish the first of the Seven Heroes, Kzinssie.

Following Gerard's actions, succession allows the story to proceed several hundred years from the initial point. Succession allows and also prevents certain events from occurring in the midst of the game.
