This is Arcana Famiglia’s first fandisk, and they have a second one in the making. I loved the first game with a passion, so I’ve been waiting for Vascello Fantasma since December. The story takes place right after the normal ending. (。・∀・。)
Arcana Famiglia receives a report that “Vascello Fantasma”, a ghost ship that appears from a thick fog, has been seen around the sea of Regalo. The port was also attacked by an unknown party a few days ago, and the four divisions have been guarding the island just in case. A week goes by peacefully, but one day, an unknown man breaks into their mansion and takes the Tarocco chest. When everyone goes to stop him, he holds Felicita as a hostage and transforms into a white tiger — taking her away to the rumored ghost ship.
Fortunately, Luca managed to attach an item called “Ariadne’s String” on Felicita’s body, which they can use to track down her location. At the same time on the ghost ship, the man puts Felicita on the deck and goes to see his friend — Joshua. It’s revealed that his name is Ash, and he can use alchemy too. Based on Joshua’s suggestion, Ash then tries making a contract with Tarocco. Joshua himself is a Tarocco holder, with the stigmata of “Justice” tattooed onto his left wrist. Upon performing the contract ritual, Ash is chosen by “The Magician” — giving him a stigmata on the neck. However, “Justice” takes over Joshua’s body the moment he touches the card. At the same time, the “Justice” card is also reversed. This causes Joshua to turn into a living skeleton, and armies of skeletons are spawning all over the ship. Realizing that Felicita is still unconscious on the deck, Ash runs out to wake her up. He wonders if this happens because he made a contract with Tarocco, while “Justice” whispers that they need the power of “Wheel of Fortune” after all.
Once Felicita regains her consciousness, Ash immediately asks her about Tarocco. He says Tarocco originally belongs to him, but of course she has no intentions to tell him anything. It would be troublesome of Felicita goes out of control, so Ash unleashes a spell to knock her out again, but Jolly’s alchemy shield protects her from the attack. The ghost ship is already sailing away from Regalo’s port, but everyone made in time to get on board. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ Ash leaves the deck after asking them some questions, and not too long after that, a thick fog comes out to cloud everyone’s vision. As the skeletons around them start moving, they hear Joshua’s voice welcoming them on board — asking them to enjoy their stay.
The thick fog warps and separates everyone here. Felicita partners up with her lover and explore the ship with him. Similarly to the first game, Dante, Jolly and Ash are available from the second run, but if you import your Arcana Famiglia save data, Dante and Jolly will be available right from the start. Since Vascello Fantasma takes place right after the first game, keep in mind that Arcana Duello is over, Mondo is alive and kicking, and Felicita is already lovers with her man.
Just curious, are you guys interested in the extras? There are lots of extras in Vascello Fantasma: Arcana Roulette, Love×Laugh, Judgement Time and extra episodes. They’re short and not exactly related to the main plot, but I can take some time to cover them if you want. Let me know if you’re interested! ☆ﾖﾛ((ヽ(・´∀`・)ﾉ))ｼｸ～☆
