Well, I know that my last journal entry was a doozy and was hard for me to write, to tell the truth, but sometimes getting it out there makes it better.
This entry will be a bit more cheer.
As one can tell, I love me some Nerdlucks, but I got to thinking, what about the other ones? The ones that were there at the basketball game, the six brown ones (well, five brown, one grey-brown), and the red one that's not Nawt? Did they stay behind, too? What happened to them?
So, as I always do, I am going to work something up with those seven--already named them:
Awry, Ague, Nour, Nox, Nok, Abate, and Swat. Ha! That's all of them! Can't believe I remembered on no sleep.
Swat is the other red one.
Nok is the one Swackhammer is holding towards the beginning of the game, when he asks if Michael Jordan is a Loony Tune.
Nox is the one towards the beginning of the film, sporting a purple/pink bowtie (I saw her in the background during the game)
Ague is the fat one that was a cheer-leader
Abate is the tall cheerleader with the orange bowtie.
Awry is the cook one (asking him if he would care for some food to nosh on during the game)
Nour is the grey/grey-brown one with the green bowtie.
In other news that is somewhat related to the above, I've re-acquired Final Fantasy Tactics (I had to sell it as a kid, along with a bunch of other PSX and PS2 games, to pay an electric bill for my folks).
You can get new members from the Soldier Office in any town.
You can name them whatever you want.
You can recruit men and women.
You can probably guess what I did. The Five and those seven, chillin' out, helpin' Ramza...Bang filling people with arrows...Pound stabbing everyone with a spear...Nawt burning all the flesh of the enemies' bones...Blanko dual-wielding daggers, using "Throw", and being a Mediator...Bupkus being a Priest (Oracle secondary). (Combine Blanko's Threaten with Bupkus's Foxbird spell and watch fun happen).
I've also got the other seven set up in their classes, as well as keeping Ramza reasonably leveled (so Wiegraf doesn't kill the crap out of him later when he has to fight him alone).
Why make them in a Final Fantasy game? Helps me work out personalities so I can write what happened to the seven (it's a wonder I didn't make them as a slew of Argonians in Skyrim instead, to tell the truth). Look forward to that!
