Playing Kingdom Hearts Chi can be a fun time waster, but doesn't show you a whole lot about the Kingdom Hearts lore. That is except for the Tome of Prophecy. (AKA "Foreteller's Script) Now what this is, is a powerful and foreshadowing device that is able to dwell into events of the future of worlds, and examine how things in said world proceed. Basically, it's like a like a magical simulator/editor for worlds. It's full power isn't entirely clear, but it is a very powerful piece of text indeed. The power of the book is used for the gameplay and story usage in Kingdom Hearts Chi, but it is slowly making it's way into the more canon games. So according to Chirishii, before the creator of the book vanished, he bestowed it onto his loyal followers, also known as the "Foretellers." (Seen below, by their bear, snake, unicorn, leopard, and fox motif) They were given knew names and entrusted to read the future that was written in the book. The last page, dictates; ""The war in that place will lead to the defeat and destruction of the Light. The World will be enveloped in eternal Darkness." If you watch the Kingdom Hearts III teaser, Xehanort and Eraqus appear to be having a conversation on said text, So what does this all mean for the series? Well, Xehanort has done his homework since he was very young it seems. Well it seems like along with the 13 Darknesses and 7 Lights battle that approaches, "That place" may perhaps be a special world or field, in which Xehanort must concoct his plan. Not only that, but this little book finds it's way into the recent 2.5 HD Remix. Oh yes, upon viewing the Re:Coded cutscenes, there seems to show the possible connection. The opening scene for Re:Coded shows Jiminy explaining that the book from their first Journey only has one line in it now; "Their hurting will be mended when you return to end it" Spoiler: Re:Coded Opening Script ?????? (narrating): So, now we've taken two journeys. One to stop the darkness from spreading, and the other to put all the lost hearts back where they belong. To tell the truth, neither one was easy, but I sure was glad to be the cricket to write down what happened. Two journeys, both sittin' quiet right here in these two books. (Two small brown books sit on a desk, both emblazoned with a crown seal) Jiminy (narrating): But now, looks like the only thing left in one of 'em is a single line. (The pages of the first book turn to read "Thank Naminé") Jiminy (narrating): Of course, maybe that's because they're the only words this book was meant to hold and it's time to close it for good. But...who exactly is this "Naminé"? (The pages turn to a page near the end of the book, and Jiminy's eyes widen at another message: "Their hurting will be mended when you return to end it". Jiminy puts a hand to his head in confusion. He rushes to the Library of Disney Castle with book in hand. King Mickey sits at his desk as Jiminy explains everything to him) Mickey: A mysterious message? Jiminy: Uh-huh. I certainly didn't write it. And you know I never once let the journal out of my sight. I don't know when anybody woulda had a chance to... Mickey: Hmm... "Their hurting will be mended"? Gosh, Jiminy. Sound like somebody needs help and doesn't know what to do. Let's get to the bottom of this. Jiminy: Of course, but how? All of the other pages are completely blank. Mickey: Sure, the words you wrote are gone, but that doesn't mean the journal is empty. As you progress through the game/cutscne movie, you find that more and more messages begin to pop up everytime a world in the journal is repaired like "There's a road for the taking if you end our world's aching." amd "Their torment has been lessened." In the end, it's revealed that Namine with the help of Diz most likely, crafted a data version of herself to pass along that message so they could understand her message of "Thank Namine" from Chain of Memories.. Now while that doesn't really connect anything, it's shown just how dangerous and useful Data can be. About 2 hours in the movie, you'll find that Maleficent and Pete discuss the possibilities of Data in relation to the Tome of Prophecy. The Link below shows a scene between the two, discussing the various uses they need from the Journal in Coded. TIMED LINK Spoiler: English Translation Maleficent: I see... Pete: What is it? Maleficent: I didn't quite understand it when I heard "Data World". The Tome of Prophecy. Once, there was a book by that name. It described the worlds of the future as thoough its writer had seen them. Pete: Ohh, if that thing existed you could do whatever you wanted with the worlds, right? Maleficent: Reproducing those worlds of the future from that Tome of Prophecy, they say you could bring about the dwellers and powers that exist in the future. Pete: What? Bring them with a book? I can only believe it is a book from a fairy tale. I shouldn't have built my hopes up. Maleficent: Indeed, from a fairy tale... However, isn't the "Data World" something similar? That Journal they used to record their trip might have a connection with the Tome of Prophecy that supposedly existed in the past. Pete: This is getting interesting, Maleficent. Maleficent: This which is called "Data", we have to get our hands on it. Watched it? Good. So as you can see, the non Angelina Jolie Maleficent has managed to alter her route in the domination game by using the Data in the Jpurnal as her own personal Tome of Prophecy. And so she continues that route in Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance when she holds Minnie ransom for the Journal. So what are your thoughts on it?
