Ruins in Principal Island

You know how on principal island there's this screen with what looks like ancient ruins, a sendell symbol and some badass spheroclones?
is it ever explained what those ruins are exactly?

I've asked Fred and Didier and they don't remember.

My guess is that a fight between, rebellion island rebels and Funfrock's army, happened there. The clones have been let there to protect that Sendell sign.

I'm probably wrong but make sense to me

Yeah, I requested that question during your interview, they didn't remember it

I would guess it simply was a temple to the glory of Sendell, FF built his fortress near it like he did with the runic stones to shoo off people who were too curious.

I think the fact that they don't remember answers us, that it was a minor part of the story, mostly just scenario to make players more curious about the ancient legacy of Sendell that once existed strongly throughout the planet and now is in ruins, hidden, guarded and kept away from public.

Polaris: "And what is a guitar doing in the middle of an asteroïd anyway?"
sgk: Think of it this way: it's like a message in a bottle. In our world, we put a message inside a bottle to protect it while it travels through the oceans to reach some other island. In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.

True, but there's something a little frustrating about it. It's the sort of thing that's just begging for a little back-story. Like, did there used to be some sort of Sendell worshipping civilization once upon a time? etc.
The developers didn't seem to be particularly arsed when it came to the small details tbh, like they also didn't explain what was the deal with the temple of bu and all that. Perhaps this stuff will be explained the day a fan remake of the game is made

Yup. Gravel's right. 30 years ago we couldn't have talked like this - we'd have to be at colleges, etc. where they used the internet in the very beginning.

Anyways, I always wondered about the Sendell symbol. There's obviously no clear explanation as to why that part exists in the game. Who knows, maybe there were multiple temples dedicated to Sendell around the globe.

Actually, I think it'd be kind of cool if a fan of the game literally wrote an entire book just to the Sendells, kind of like a Holy Bible or the Quran (or however that's spelled).

Then we could use someone who has the artistic talent like Didier, and have 'drawings' from ancient times in the book to give it that 'aged' feel.

What'd be the best part, is that the book look likes the Book of Bu, after all, the cover had an 'S' on it for representation of Sendell. If you remember the cutscene after Twinsen goes through the temple, you notice it in his right arm.

Bu must be related to Sendell I can't believe! I remember all the time when I was a kid me and my brother were telling it was the Sendell's Well (puit de sendell). Then we replayed the game and found out it was Bu.

The idea of Dider making design from a fan kind of bible is awesome

Twinsun

I know some lines from the Sendell's Bible. Like, "thou shall not covet thy neighbor's rabbibunny" ...

I don't think there would be need for a saint book, since you experience the goddesses presence first hand... I think religion would be more like something everyone lives in, rather than dusty old myths.
