Final Fantasy VI - Day 21 (In which islands fly... apparently)

Well, I thought I'd get onto the ship and fuck off, but I get into a cut scene. Oh joy. What the hell do you bitches want now? Meanwhile Gestahl and Kefka are back at the Esper Door:

Where's Shemp? Oh, right, stabbed him.
and the emperor seems surprised that the once lush forest is a shitty cliff face now too. They invade Esper land, Tina feels the cosmos, and then there's an earthquake, and a huge chunk of land floats up into the sky... which is now where Gestahl and Kefka are, instead of esper world:

Aaaand I used my Three Stooges reference a picture too early!
Well I know where my next plot point is, but mostly I want to fuck off. I tried to get a picture of the statues in their non-chibi form, but I failed. Sorry. Apparently it's time to pick a party (Celes is back, by the way) but I don't know if I'll get to skitter off and level, so I think I'm going to add on some bruisers and see what happens. Oh! Apparently the middle option is 'just fly around' or something like that, so I'm off to magic grind. See you in a few.

Romancing Saga 2: Fire on the Mountain

The local Foxtrot Guy mentions a place called Komuruun Volcano. Or I assume it's a volcano since the kanji are "Fire Mountain." Some people seem to be mentioning Salamanders as well, so that seems like a safe bet.

Romancing Saga 2: Because Rivers Don't Have TOWERS.

There are stairs leading down on the left, but they seem to be filled with sand. I bet this whole tower's gonna rise up out of the dirt. In the other entrance we've got a room full of slimes, beyond which are some skeletons and a path to a roomful of octopi. Unless I'm missing something- which is MORE than possible- the skeletons are guarding a big pile of nothing.

Romancing Saga 2: Learning to Hate Towers

It's a straightforward tower: go up a floor, kill a Gargoyle, go up another floor. Get up enough floors, there's a dungeon. Of course. I'm starting to worry that 999 is the HP maximum because Bruiser's been stuck there a while. If so it seems bloody unfair, seeing as how I've had attacks do 1500 damage and up to my people.

Not surprisingly this area reminds me of the towers in the desert. Except it's like all of them at once, stacked vertically... kind of. We work our way up and then back down...

Romancing Saga 2: A New World of Gods and Monsters

The area's called either Eiruneb or Eirunep- I think it's a 'bu' at the end. That tower is about two screens tall, and covered in gargoyles. More red-haired people in this town. Guess we'll introduce ourselves to the locals, and the local gargoyles to our weapons. There's a lot of talk of a queen and possibly gods in here.

Romancing Saga 2: Necklace Full of DEATH

Meet Shiero! Apparently I can recruit Mole People if I really want to. We run back out of the anthill, and nap in Savannah.

The music is surprisingly sinister.

Final Fantasy VI - Day 20 (In which Kefka Brings the Stabbity*)

So when I left off yesterday, I was in a room full of suspicious-looking dents in the floor, and I was wondering if I should stand on one, so I check to see if that's what I'm supposed to do.

Ah, I remember those bridges! For some reason all the dungeons that use them annoyed the hell out of me.
Apparently it is. It dropped me down here, so let's hope I picked the right one. Well it seems to have been the only path connected to an exit that wasn't the original two, so that's good, I suppose. I'm led into a room full of spotlights, but I don't get anything for standing in one so they must just be cosmetic.
