Game Sabin Media & Exploration Shrine

Background

This site, previously called Wanderer, was made in July of 2007. It had eight information sections, a small gallery, and a fan art page. Not to say that small sites are terrible, but mine was. (We all have to start somewhere, though, right?) I decided to rewrite, rename, and basically remake the entire site in February of 2010. Sabin is a great character, and he deserves better than what I was giving him. Somewhere Only We Know was completed on March 29, 2010. Not only were the eight information sections Wanderer had expanded on and rewritten, but a ton more information and opinion pieces were added. The site's media section was also expanded. I had a lot of fun writing about Sabin again. I hope you enjoyed reading about him.

Somewhere Only We Know?

I knew I wanted to rename this site once I started remaking it. It's not the same site it was before. I heard Keane's Somewhere Only We Know on the radio on my way home from work one day, and I felt like the lyrics really fit Sabin.

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete
Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin
So if you have a minute why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go
Somewhere only we know?

It makes me think of Edgar comforting Sabin at the top of their castle in the Coin Toss scene. I think it also speaks heavily about Sabin's intentions throughout the game. Kefka could have been the end of the world, and Sabin just wanted a place to belong and begin again. That place is of course in Figaro with Edgar. Everything Sabin had done in his life was for Figaro and Edgar.
