Unhappy confusing

In the intro to la it says that ff rules twinsun with an iron fist, but nobody seems to notice that. Theyre all like: All hail the venerable dr funfrock who saved us from the "superstitions" (you know what i mean even though i cant spell it )

So he is actually pulling a curtain over their eyelids, not controlling them with fear.

Opinions please

Ever looked at real dictatures? Know what happeneds there?

I think Twinsun in LBA 1 is like Germany in the second world war.
Both are being decieved, both are supressed but continue thinking it's for their own good.

I think Funfrock might (as well like Hitler did with Germany), help Twinsun out of a great crisis, and people tent to think at those people that they do it for their own well being.
Of course, the propaganda helped alot with this too (think about the posters with "long live the venerable doctor Funfrock who saved us from superstision"

The same did Hitler, but we all know from what he 'saved' germany from....

It was FunFrock himself who commanded to put up those posters, it's not like (most) of the people like his dictatorship.

That's kinda the whole point of the game next to saving Sendell's Well, a revolution in the dictatorship.

since there is no indication of time on Twinsun you don't even know how long Funfrock has been a dictator... And you also don't know how long quetches live, etc ...
so it could be possible that funfrock has been a dictator for a long time.. and after a while you just accept it... you don't have much choice

Yeah, it also says that when Funfrock first came to power everyone objected. Then eventually after losing hope they accepted his dictature.

Funfrock must have been in power for a long time, because talking about the legend has been banned for sooooooo long that it has been completley forgotton!

I got the impression that it wasn't that the legend had been banned for a long time. It seems like it was generally forgotten. But when people got tired of the dictatorship, some people started talking about the old legends. When that started, the ban was placed on it. I think people forgot long before FunFrock came to power...

I think that makes more sense.
Twinsunians may live longer then humans, but I don't think they would live longer then there memories in that way.

Well... I don't think the Legend was forgotten... I think the peeps of Twinsen were just way too scared to talk about it. Funfrock does have a lot of power in thsi Dictatorship.

Remember little Twinsen? He was thrown into prison just having dreams about the Legend and destruction of Twinsun. So, that is proof of Funfrick's iron fist control, and why there would be so much fear in the hearts of citizens.

So how did FunFrock get all that stuff to begin with? It's not like you don't notice that your next door neighbor is stock piling an army...

And what was the government of Twinsen like before? Did they every mention that? I suppose you could say that it was like it is in LBA2, but you really don't see much about the government there either. Do the wizards run the place?

Of course, LBA2 seems really under populated compared to LBA1. Maybe there's so few people that they don't need a government.

This isn't explained in the game, but in the film it will briefly mention that funfrock seemed to be good at first, essentialy tricking the Twinsunians into having a teleporter system and cloning reaserch.
Some people realised it was a trick and rebled but too late, others countinued to believe funfrock was doing it for there best interests, and others new it wasn't but where too scared to fight.
I think this is the most likely explanation.
