Where I Currently Am: Alexandria Castle (Disc 2)
Stuff Did Today: While searching for Supersoft in Treno, we found Doctor Tot, who used to be Dagger's tutor. He gave us some Supersoft and a method to travel back to Alexadria, namely the Gargan Roo. We defeated a snake that was spooking the Gargan and then made it back to Alexandria where we were promptly trapped and captured by Zorn and Thorn. A ritual was performed on Dagger which removed all of her Eidolons and placed into Jewels... more on this soon... meanwhile, Zidane and crew found the tree of Cleyra which was surrounded by a magical sandstorm. After climbing the tree, they made it to Cleyra, where they were preparing their defenses. An ancient ritual to strengthen the sandstorm failed when a magical harp broke. Soon after, Alexandria began to attack. We managed to save some villagers, but Beatrix defeated us once again and stole a magic sacred jewel of the Cleyrans. She took it back to Brahne, who then summoned Odin who was stolen from Dagger and destroyed Cleyra. Luckily Zidane and company had used the Black Mages to sneak back to Brahne's ship where they found out Dagger was going to be executed. So, we teleported to the castle where we met Steiner who escaped from his prison and are now off to rescue the Princess!!! (How cliche)...

Status & Notes: 

Hooray! Mission accomplished. Finished Cleyra and got everyone back to Alexandria... which is good, because Cleyra really takes quite a bit. Oh yeah, we're actually starting to get into the actual plot of the game now... Power Hungry Queen wants to collect summons to gain more power because she's power hungry... but of course this is a Final Fantasy game... so obviously she's not the real bad guy... Yeah, again, I can't stress enough how this game just takes a lot of things from other Final Fantasy games and kind of mixes everything up. Different and yet the same...

Something I find kind of cool is the whole Gaelic influence they have with the Burmecians/Cleyrans. For a series that has drawn from so many different cultures to influence its games, its funny, but using a Gaelic influence actually seems different and refreshing. Its a nice little song and dance they use for the whole Sandstorm strengthening ritual they do too.

Goals for today... I'm going through Alexandria... though I'm NOT going to do Tantarian right now... it is something I actually did on my first playthrough of the game... take him out now... It is something that takes a LOT of strategy, and luck, and using a LOT of save states... and really not worth the effort right now. I'd like to make it through Fossil Roo... which, again, might be a little lofty of a goal... but we'll see. Made it yesterday right? We'll see how it goes today...
