Ogre Battle 29: Oops Upon Oops

Kamui is heading here, from the shop town. Once there, I'm dismissing one of the Clerics in the boonies and pulling Canopus, who has maintained a decent Alignment even if his Gryphon is a complete son of a bitch. Using this temple as a staging area Canopus, Kamui, and Ashe should be able to press onwards and beat the boss.

Ogre Battle 28: Kamui, When Did YOU Get Badass!?

Sammy's making some headway, being the first person to genuinely WIN a fight and leveling up in the process. Then he dies. And we bring him back. And Ashe wins a fight. I've already burned through nearly 50,000 Goth worth of Revives here, and when I use the last one is when we go for some GOETIC JUSTICE. It's also getting close to payday already- stupid Moon card! -and I'm definitely operating at a loss. But at least Landis gets some licks in, utterly obliterating the Samurai that killed Ashe a minute ago. Revive count: 5.

Gilbert finally reaches a Temple and gets a rez quote on his Wyrm: 5100 Goth. Fuck. That. NOISE. Revive Count: 4. You know who CAN win a fight without anybody dying?

Fuckin' KAMUI. My supposedly-fragile Scout unit.

Ogre Battle 27: Can I Go Now?

While awaiting his enemies, Gilbert delivers the Golden Beehive on FLAIL's behalf. In exchange, Posha gives us a Sentoul Demon statue. After the stage I'll show you what that's for, but trust me: that's good.

But the enemies are now lining up around the block to fight Gilbert. That's bad.

The Frogurt is also cursed.

Ogre Battle 26: With an L

Next up is a busy, busy map: Diaspola. Yup, with an L. Really. An awful lot to do here, and the part I'm most interested in is also the part least essential to the best ending. (Which- and I may have mentioned this before -I make no promises about getting. I've never gotten the best ending for this game.)
