Final Fantasy VI - Day 15 (The first update on my magic carpet ride)

So... Hi... Um, what for you has been a week, for me has been... much longer. Forgive me, but I was side-tracked by Okami (which was on loner, so I wanted to get it finished, and was a pretty good game, once you got over the learning curve), and then Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep (a VERY good game thus far, even though no matter what you do, even the best ending is the bad ending... which was why I didn't play Final Fantasy X, but hey, I'm a pitiful, pitiful KH fangirl). In any event, I'm back to this, and level grinding my face off. Just to give you a bit of extra insight into my life, and I know you're thrilled to have that, I recently had a wisdom tooth pulled, and I'm on Lortab for the pain. The point of telling you this, dear readers, is that this weekend is going to be written from my magic carpet ride. Now without further adieu, on with the flail.

Romancing Saga 2: Summon Bigger Fish

Welcome back to Grinding Time Station! Sadly I am neither George Carlin nor Ringo, but we'll all survive.

Romancing Saga 2: More Maritime Shenanigans

There's a storm at sea. There's some conversation...

...and we're back in friggin' TOBA. Damn! No amount of talking to Tobans or Mermaiders makes a lick of difference, so it's back on the road.

Romancing Saga 2: To Wind a Piece of String Around

Dashing back out of the Amazon village, I find a prompt. I have a feeling I'm about to fall into an Amazon trap, but I'm gonna do it anyway.

Romancing Saga 2: Wonder Woman, is that you?

As to whether the Magic Stone Shard does anything in Chontou? Short answer: No. Long Answer: Not as far as I can tell. So I decide to wander Saramatt, the area with the disconcerting jungle noises; it connects Yuuyan to the Savannah area south of Cumberland. And I find a new screen:

This young lady is being set upon by wolf-dog things! Time to intercede in a punchy/speary/axey/swordy manner.

Romancing Saga 2: Sadly rocks don't HAVE wires.

Lots of dead things down here: zombies, ghosts, skeletons... These monsters are called "Fear," which seems like a good name, and they're part of the ghost family. Fortunately, unlike Skeleton-family monsters, Ghosts are vulnerable to petrification and instant death. Wandering nets me another 300K chunk of ruby.

Final Fantasy VI Day 14: Sparklypoo Flashback

As it turns out, it DID strip the magicite that teaches Cure off Celes. Thank goodness, I have people I need to put that shit on. Now, on with the show!
