Stuff Did Today (FF X-2): None

Stuff Did Today (FF XI): Finished levelling Thief. Switched back to Red Mage and undertook a new mission. We were told not to repeat any news of the Shadowlord's return to anyone... then Ajido-Marujido showed up with the empty Book of the Gods and wanted the Star Sibyl to look at it. Since everyone still thinks he's a traitor we were told to follow him. After some detective work, we found he was heading to Castle Oztroja which is a stronghold of the Yagudo.

We followed him to the Castle which was locked up tightly, then we found a trapdoor which we fell down. Apparently Ajido did as well. We spoke to him, and it sure doesn't sound like he's a traitor. He wants to save Windurst from the coming doom!

Status & Notes: 

Finally back to some story in XI. Yeah, its just a long trip between missions all the time, and now we come to an interesting part. The next mission involves going through the Three-Mage Door... meaning you need a Red Mage, White Mage, and Black Mage to open it. Well, crap, right? Yes, you can find someone who's done the quest before and have him open it with a key you get... but there is another way. There's a back way in, which can be opened if you're on a certain quest. Unfortunately, this quest requires you to have a certain level of reputation with Windurst...

So, I did a little research on Reputation, and it seems like another system that's just been oversimplified with time. The initial purpose it seems is that you can do repeatable quests to up your reputation very similar to World of Warcraft. However, in a lot of cases, the items you need to farm for these quests can just be purchased... so, that seems to really defeat the purpose. So, anyway, that's my plan, spend a bunch of time upping my Windurst Rep so I can do this quest.

I do plan on getting some X-2 playtime in today... where I'll probably mostly just be getting a few more Episode Completes and watching the scenes... If I have time I may start some Creature Creator stuff... or maybe even do some PR running. I'd really like to get that out of the way. Also, at some point today or tomorrow I will be doing an XI Current setup, haven't done one in a while.
