Where I Currently Am: Ice Cavern
Stuff Did Today: Rounded up the Knights of Pluto, then pursued Princess Garnet onto Tantalus's theater ship.

Status & Notes: 

As I said yesterday, I'm kind of taking it easy for the first few days at least, at which point I'm sure I will pick up the pace. I have some time though, and it is not going to take me as long to get through this as it did Final Fantasy VIII... and there's one key reason for that. I'm not going to go nuts playing Tetra Master. Yes, I will list my cards above, but I'm not going to go out of my way to collect all the cards or anything like that. I've done it before and there's literally no purpose to it. Also, obviously, my run is not going to include getting the Excalibur II or anything ridiculous like that. I will be getting all the Chocobo Treasures, all the Blue Magic, etc. Just kind of wanted to outline my playthrough here.

I think I'm going to be focusing alot on the music in my commentary here, as, again, I have a very personal connection to the music from this game. There are a few GREAT tracks which unfortunately aren't heard very much in the game, just a couple of times which we get to experience in this short little bit of the game today. The first is Jesters of the Moon, which is the theme of Zorn and Thorn, a great track, go listen to it now, go! The other I really enjoy is the Evil Forest theme, which is very gentle and soothing for a place called the Evil Forest... Also, hearing the battle music in this game just makes me want to conduct all day.

Heh, so, today, probably another short day, my goal is really just to get through the Ice Cavern and make it over to Dali... really not being very ambitious so far. That'll change I'm sure... let's see how it goes.
