Team Shining: Original Timeline

Hello everyone and welcome to Team Shining: Original Timeline.

I have been kicking around the idea of doing a massive Team Shining: Original Timeline. If this concept isn’t obvious, then let me explain further. As a group, we will play through all of the “original timeline” games. These games include all of the Genesis/ Mega Drive games, CD, and Game Gear (Shining Force 1, 2, CD, FC, and SitD) but will not include Shining Wisdom. While I know that Shining Wisdom is part of the original timeline, I also know that it’s a pain to emulate and that there is very little interest in the game itself. Furthermore, this is going to be a large undertaking as it is and SW would compound that even more. Besides, the connections are fairly loose (and poorly translated) so it’s not much of a loss (I did enjoy it though so play it when you get a chance!) As an aside, I've picked this time to start this as no other Team games are active except FC which is nearing completion.

We will be playing each of these games in chronological order based upon their stories and not on release date. The games will not run at the same time meaning that we will have to complete Shining Force 1 before we start Shining Force CD (and so on). I've decided not to do any hacked/ edited versions of any of the games. We will be playing vanilla and when presented with a difficulty, I'm suggesting doing Normal but it is ultimately up to the person that starts each game.

As a group, we will also decide on different crossroads presented in each game. We can either hash this all out early on or as we draw closer to decision points. I'd like it if we could get a close-consensus on whether character 'x' will join the Force and (if they do) which character they will replace. The same will apply to stat boosting items but rings will be dependent on the preference of the current battler. If it gets to the point that it takes too long to make these decisions, then it will be up to the person currently running a battle.


Now onto some specifics of battles:

I sent PMs out to ten people and heard back from eight (myself included) of which one person declined. The other two members never responded and were therefore not included in the below list of battle allocation. The people that I sent PMs to are those that are currently active in Team games (only a few have run this past year so the sample is a bit small). I have allocated battles so that each of us have 17 (they may not be balanced in regards to early/late game-ness) which allows 40 battles to be passed off to reserves. I did this in case those other 2 people finally get back to me and want in but also because (I hope) other people will be interested in doing a few battles in general (some of the more recent members of Team SF2 for example, or a few old players that don't partake as often in Team games anymore). If I do receive an overwhelming amount of reserves wanting battles, I will drop the 'main group' down to 15 or 16 battles each.

Battles themselves have been random to an extent. I asked each of the main members to give me 10 battles they would really like to do. For each of them, they all received at least 7 of the battles they wanted so I feel pretty good about that. Otherwise, the rest were mostly randomize across the other games (the one big discrepancy will likely be seen between books 1 and 2 of Shining Force CD as I just lumped them all together. The randomization was somewhat altered to try and get everyone a fair percentage of each game (for example, zexxar has 10% of SF1, 9% of CD and FC, and 11% of SF2). Everyone isn't completely even across all games, but we're pretty close.

I don't think anyone has back-to-back battles but if you do, I apologize. Per usual though, you are allowed to trade battles if you so desire. The only exception to this is if you want to trade a battle marked 'Reserve'. The only time you can trade with a reserve is if an actual member claims the reserve battle and wants to trade with you. The reason I have it set this way is because I wanted some decent battles left for reserves to claim. In the event that nobody else really wants to take these battles though, we will distribute them more to the 'main group'. And don't be shy about telling me if I missed a battle or the name of the battle should be changed; most of these were taken from other Team games (so thanks to those guys for doing it in the first place!)

For those interested as a reserve, the battles are simply first-come. For the time being though, I'm going to limit each reserve to 6 battles each. This number may increase based upon interest for the game in general (if we only have a few reserves, they will get more and if we get a lot of reserves, I may strip the main group of a few battles each.) If you are interested though, you don't have to pick 5, but it is the current maximum.

With all of that said, let me get on to the massive list of battles. As usual, post any questions, comments, or concerns in the topic (or PM me though the topic is preference). Battles are listed below:

First battle is done. I got Gong before the battle and some level ups sadly Tao didn't get one because of 6 point :( .
I was quite tempted to do the next reserve battle immediatley but I thought that would be mean if no one else has the chance to claim it.

But at this point I would like to claim one of the later reserve battles (to tower of the ancients or ancient tower) because otherwise I will have a break for more than 20 battles which is quite long.

Captain's log, stardate 07052013.
Today began the TSF Original Timeline's voyage to explore all classic Shining Force games. Nobody can say if we are ready for this venture. Many on bord talk about a "50 year mission" and I can't tell if they are joking or accurate. But they are all good men and women and know what they've gotten themselves into. We will need to pick up additional personel on our way, which may prove to be the worst of our delays.
All that is left for me to do is try to lift the spirits and fulfill my dutys swiftly and assidiously.

You gave me my favorite SF2 battle though, so I'll forgive you :excited:

EDIT

if we can claim reserves, I'd like an early SF1 battle as well, if no one takes it though. I don't really mind too much, but my first battle is currently the Road to demon castle, 20 battles into the project. So if no one takes em I'd take one.

If you're still looking for reserves, I would like to sign up. I would like the following battles, if I may be allowed...

SF1 - Laser Eye
SF1 - Balbazak
SFCD - Graveyard
SF2 - Zeon

If I were to only get one of those battles, I would have it be the Zeon battle.

You said you hadn't played these games so I skipped you ;P I did make sure you get some nice ones though so fret not :)

And at this time, the reserve battles are not open for grabs but you can do the current battle if you'd like. You can work a trade out with someone too.


Bulzome- definitely looking for reserves. I'll mare you down for those battles ;)

Yeah I figured that was the reason. It's all good ;)

I don't mind playing the next one, but it'll wait a little bit. The university semester is ending this friday and is being a little terrible. Doing it this weekend max, unless that's too late for you. At least it'll give more time to reserves to show up. I'm thinking maybe part of those that would be interested in some of these games don't necessarily come 'round in this particular forum. Maybe visibility is being a little problem here, reserves wise.

Super stoked about this; one concern though. I never managed to get the shining force CD game successfully emulated. While trying to stay in bounds of what we can discuss, what system are we using for CD and is there a reliable website to get it from?

Also, I'm down for whatever battles; I've actually never played more than sf1 and 2, but I've always wanted to break into the other ones. Seems like an awesome chance :thumbsup:

We will be using Gens+ (it runs all the games we have here) but I won't be able to help out with getting SFCD to work though. Gens+ : http://segaretro.org/Gens_Plus!

If you're unsure about getting certain games to work, just don't sign up for those. Otherwise, pick 5 battles currently labeled as reserved.

SF1: Road to the Tower
CD: Astreet Island
CD: Thames Valley
Final Conflict: Mishaela
SF2: Odd Eye

Would've loved to try a shining in the darkness battle, but oh well. It looks like a pretty short game by the list; mebe I'll just actually play it. :shifty: Mostly just picked at random, haven't ever done most of these battles before. If anyone else wants them that's cool.

Shining in the darkness isn't a tactical RPG Antman, it's a dungeon crawler. At least that's what I've heard. Thus the small list of levels (and of people willing to play them).

EDIT

Was thinking about it and I would like to propose Ouch as our difficulty in SF2, as opposed to normal. It has a (supposedly) better AI, but without the extra edge like on super.

That 'supposedly' is big and I doubt there is a difference. It's fine with me though, ehow just needs to remember.

If a battle for SF1 or SF2 need a reserve let me know...I can fill in some if needed, but currently I don't have a lot of free time on my hands.

We will be playing vanilla and when presented with a difficulty, I'm suggesting doing Normal but it is ultimately up to the person that starts each game.

Looking forward to Alterone battle.

I got a question, now that I'm thinking about it.

When do we save and quit? Right when our battle ends? Or when the next one begins? I'M assuming right as ours ends, because then the next guy gets to prepare his own battle, but still. Asking to be sure.

I'd say right after the battle ends, at least I always did it that way and never received any complains :)

As soon as the last enemy dies, save the game. All item collecting and story advancement is for the next person.

Spear God- the initial signup was private so that I could gauge an interest in the idea from the group of people that have reliably gotten back to me (not that you haven't, but most of these people have been doing it for years). Feel free to grab another battle too, I'm allowing all late joiners to take 6 total for now :)

That's unfair! I'm doing it for years too, I was one of the pioneer of the first Team FC and SF3 and I even launched the first Team SF CD... I only have been MIA during 7 years... :shifty:

I'm reassured, as I didn't log in since several days, I thought I missed the sign up tread. I'll take the remaining battle of SF1 as sixth one.

By the way, I would have liked to see Saturn games on this big Team Shining but I can understand they haven't been chosen as they're not considered as "classic" games and similarities with other ones plot are almost inexistant...

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Fri May 10 2013 9:23pm

The main reason they weren't added is because a lot of people struggle to emulate them and because they are lengthy as all hell. Shining Force 3 alone would have almost doubled the list.


As a note to everyone: When you post your finished battle, be sure to list any deaths, significant level-gains (learning of a spell, if you caught a character up that was behind, etc.), and if any equipment is cracked or dropped from an enemy. You can post a lot more than that, but those are kind of the basic things that most people appreciate seeing.

Okay, I got the save and am ready to go. One question though : can't help but notice Luke has no EXP. I take it we're not levelling him up? Would be good to know before I start catching him up ;)

But do know, there is no egressing. If our wonderful hero should fail, you have to restart the battle.

I just "abused" him as meatshield because he always got his turn when everything was dead or when I waited for a specific character to get his turn to finish an enemy. So it's just a bad coincidence it's not that I don't like Luke :)

All right the battle is done. The last dark dwarf got a double on Luke who was on the bridge, and killed him :damnit:

Other than that, I had fun levelling the heals, because I could. Lowe and Gong are both lvl 3, the rest are 2 (even Luke, yes).

Tao's lvl up that you barely missed got her a whoppin' 4 MP! (and nothing else).

Here's the save

Bought a handaxe for Luke, a spear for Mae, recruited Gort, raided the treasurey and revived Luke.

I think somewhere inbetween some people died and talked about some ancient evil or something. Though that one guy had a really neat sword.

The battle went pretty well. Everybody is up to level 3, though sadly most level ups where speed and HP only. Aside from Max and Gort, who both got very good stat ups.
Surprisingly, the bats didn't give me as much shit as usual with their evasion. They still did it, mind you, but not to the "I want to kill something" levels.
Tao sadly croaked when a Rune Knight double attacked her, first dealing 5 damage ("Ah ok, not as bad as I thought, she still has 6") and then 6 ("Ah crap. Why U so mean damage RNG?").

I have a coupla questions again. You said we were using Gens+ to emulate everything, because it works. Now I started playing SFCD ('cause why not), and I'm having a few problems. Got the game running, with music even, but the save state didn't work, and it froze during the 2nd battle. How do we get around those problems later here?

Stole the remaining treasures in the castle of Alterone...2 empty chests, 50 golds and a Wooden Staff :thumbsup:
Encountered Yogurt.

Go to Rindo, picked up the Speed Ring (given to Lowe). Bought Power staves for Lowe, Khris and Tao. Sold useless things, bought Medical Herb and antidotes. (I know how zombies can be very annoying with their poison attack). Spoke with Guntz and his mad professor.

I have bad memories with that battle. The pack of zombies mixed with the 2 Dark mages already gave me nightmares in the past. But Finally I did it well. The mages were slowed in their movement by their own undead friends and I could reach them before they became dangerous.
Tao did twice Blaze LV 2, weakening greatly our foes and it was the key of my easy victory. Finally, no poisonous attack. No deaths.

Unfortunately, no crazy level up and some disappointing ones (Max and Luke)

Mae LV 4 - AT+1, DF+3, SPD+1, HP+2
Tao LV 5 - DF+1, MP+2
Gong LV5 - AT+2, DF+1, MP+1
Ken LV5 - DF+1, HP+5
Max LV 5 - DF+2
Lowe LV5 - AT+2, DF+1, SPD+1
Luke LV 5 - SPD+1
Hans LV 5 - DF+1, SPD+1
Khris LV 5 - AT+1, DF+1, SPD+1, HP+1, MP+1 and Heals became LV2

Recruited Arthur. Gave him the Power Ring that mysteriously wasn't equipped to Ken who held it.

Some Lady in a Pond that isn't a good basis for a legislative system talked to me, but I forgot what about.
Then the mayor talked to me. I lost interest and went to the circus. Apparently it is run by that witch that sunk my ship! SHINING FORCE, GET HER! She WILL pay for that ship!

Max leveled to 6! +2ATT, +2DEF, +2 SPD, +2 HP
Tao reached level 7! +1ATT, +1DEF, +2 SPD, +1HP
Arthur reached level 5! +1DEF, +1HP
Lowe reached level 6! +1SPD, +4MP
Ken's level raised to 6! +1ATT, +1SPD
Anri is now level 6! +1ATT, +1DEF, +1SPD, +3MP
Mae's level increased to 6! +1ATT

I bumrushed the Marionette and thanks to a double attack with a crit from Max that brought it down to less than half HP with the first strike, I was able to kill it before anybody died. Arthur got in the final hit - at first the marionette evaded him, but he doesn't take a 'no' for an answer and attacked again, dealing 5 damage for the kill.

Now gimme a cookie!

I hear Arthur is only good when you promote him at 20. Boot him.

Arthur will sit out and I can do this when I get home (so about 9-14 hours lol)

While I have (most) attention here, we can decide something else: Should we pick final teams as we go, predetermine it in the first parts of every game, or leave it to the player the recruits the character?

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Wed May 15 2013 12:34pm
by Drakonis
I would almost say leave it to the player. That way we may get more interesting setups.

On the other hand, it also means some people may not get any kind of decision based on their battle setup.

Picking as we go sounds like the fairest option. Maybe remind people a battle early so we won't have to wait for the decisions.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Wed May 15 2013 1:14pm
by MXC
We could do that. The biggest issue with group decisions as we go means that a lot of time could be wasted. Maybe we'll give it a limit in days.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Wed May 15 2013 1:38pm
by zexxar
I'd also say just leave it to the player to save some time, because otherwise we will waste a lot of time, especially when people start to have totally different opinions on a characters that joins or one we should kick instead.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Wed May 15 2013 2:28pm
by Simpelicity
Yeah well I say don't leave it to the player. I don't give experience to people I don't plan on using. That kinda makes the decision for evrybody else if I do that (which I don't want to). I say plan it in a group ahead of time. We can still have interesting setups... as long as we want to. And it doesn't generate a waste of time. And we can be efficient with our experience distribution.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Wed May 15 2013 5:33pm
by MXC
Why don't we do it this way:

We'll make a list at the beginning of each game for characters that we (mostly) agree on that shouldn't be in the Force. For example, we all know Arthur sucks with a normal promotion so he should be out. In another example, I often see Elric and Rohde sporting similar stats when Rohde joins so that could be a toss-up.

If we do it the way I just outlined, we'll still leave some members for discussion, but we can streamline the process a little bit. So, going off of that, here is the cast for Shining Force:

Luke, Ken, Tao, Hans, Lowe, Gong, Gort, Mae, Khris, Anri, Arthur, Balbaroy, Amon, Diane, Zylo, Pelle, Jogurt, Kokichi, Vankar, Gutz, Domingo, Earnest, Lyle, Bleu, Musashi, Alef, Torasu, Adam, Hanzou.

Out: Arthur, Balbaroy, Amon, Jogurt, Bleu, Alef, Torasu, Adam. Correct me if any of those don't belong since I can't remember join levels.

As far as when those characters would leave (the same would apply to all games) is determined by whoever recruits them. So for now, I could choose any of the first 3 to bench but the last few would never see action.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Wed May 15 2013 7:26pm
by Simpelicity
That sounds all right.

I'll add to that that we probably don't want/need 3 healers either, so at least one of our current ones is gonna get the boot eventually. Might wanna keep that in mind when making sure they keep up. One of them might just be around for emergency healing until we find better. and not really need much experience to do just that.

Talking about healers, why is Torasu out? I don't remember very well, but I don't think he's particularly terrible when he joins. Plus he's got aura. The rest of the out I agree with. How do Lyle's levels look like when he joins again? He might also be out if he requires too much grinding. Been too long since I played to remember.

I thought Torasu joined at a low level and Lyle joined fine (I could be wrong though but I remember not using Torasu and using Lyle most of the time and that's likely due to level issues).

As far as too many healers, that will be something we address when it comes up as most of the healers are usable with early promotion or are hybrid.

Heh well yeah, same for me really, but I do remember Lyle needing a leeedle bit of grinding. Checked a gamefaqs guide because my memory isn't good enough (the Sephirstein one) :

Lyle joins at lvl 9 unpromoted. He cites the recommended level at 7-8 promoted. That looks bad but my memory tells me it isn't that bad.... not sure. He's far behind, but maybe he's got good enough atk that it wouldn't be too much of a problem? I dunno.

As for Torasu, he joins at 15 unpromoted, ie 6 promoted. The guide stops giving recommended levels so it's a little hard to compare, but I'd say around 14-15 promoted? That's almost 10 levels behind buuuuut.... 1) he's a healer and 2) he learns aura next level, so 1) levels aren't AS important as melee duders as long as he's got mana to heal and 2) aura makes catching up cake really. In short, he's viable.

EDIT on second thought, aura might not help him that much to catch up, depending on his mana pool, but it's gonna help a little. He might stay a little under levelled, but still viable I think. Not that I necessarily want him in mind you. Just saying he's not necessarily out by default.

If you put Bleu into the out list because of his level you definitely have to put Lyle on that list too. He just joins one battle earlier is the same level as Bleu but has a much worse movement in the battles to come due to many hills compared to Bleu who can be leveled much easier thanks to his mobility.
Although I'm not affected by this since I don't have any of the later battles I just wanted to give my opinion :)

I'd actually enjoy sucky low level Bleu more than generally sucky Diane. The same goes for Alef/Hans

Then again, my last battle is the second Ship. It's not like I'm going to play at the point those two join.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

Well let me ask you this, zexxar: Is Lyle/Bleu usually behind in levels when you add them or was I wrong with Bleu being behind?

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Wed May 15 2013 9:44pm
by ehow22
I'd say consider at least one of the birds because flying is nice And they can use the strongest weapon in the game...not to mention Doom Blade.

I wouldn't bother with Torasu since we have Khris.....I only bothered keeping our healers leveled up because I don't wanna be the guy who makes them unplayable for somebody that likes them. Healers rarely keep up because they require wasting mp(wasting time) and feeding kills. So I almost never have a healer in my final team xD.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Wed May 15 2013 9:45pm
by MXC
The only characters I'm going to rule out before we get them are ones that are too far behind in levels. So the birds are safe unless someone takes them out for another member that isn't behind in levels... if that all makes sense

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Wed May 15 2013 11:08pm
by Simpelicity
Yes, except you ruled them out yourself MXC :confused:

Unless you were just giving a vote to kick 'em. Which I would support. If they can end up good though maybe keep one...

Is the Pegasus any good? I don't think I ever used him. He joins desperatly late, but he might give us the flyer we need... albeit late.

I'd kick Hans and Diane down the line too, except if we exclude Lyle that means no archers at all.

Talking about which : Yes, Bleu is underlevelled when he joins. I can usually promote around chapter 4, chap 3 if I grind a little. He joins mid chapter 6, missing a level for promotion.

Those were just suggestions, anyone can comment to the contrary.

No deaths. Mae sucks so bad though. I gave the Power Ring to Balbaroy though since he can be utilized better. I'd be okay with Mae leaving for Zylo lol.

No amazing or power level-ups. They were all about normal (for most games anyway!).

Usually they are behind in levels given that you can easily have everyone promoted by then with a few levels*. Hence I said if you put either of those on the outlsit because of their level you have to put the other one on it too. Actually the only characters that join in the second half of the game not being behind in levels are Musashi and Hanzou everyone else needs to be babied to some degree espeically if you don't Egress. But actually everyone can catch up if you just put enough effort into it but I guess it's not worth it in a team game. :)

But I better back off the dicussion who will be in the final team since I'm not affected anyway unless I have to jump in as reserve at some point.

*Edit: I think I still have save states from my last vanilla no egress run somewhere. I can look up what the average level of my team was at the beginning of chapter 6 if you're interessted.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Thu May 16 2013 12:35pm

Yeah, check your saves and let me know. If they are more than a few levels behind, they can stay there.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Thu May 16 2013 5:06pm
by zexxar
OK I just looked at my savestate and it was no normal no Egress run, because I used EVERY character (except Yogurt of course). But all the characters were at level 2 or 3 promoted at the beginning of chapter 6 except Lyle who is only level 8 when you get him.
But given that I really levelled every character without egressing and therefore 'wasting ' lots of exp. you have to add AT LEAST 2 or 3 levels for each character.

Here's the state if anyone's interessted:

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Thu May 16 2013 5:16pm
by Stordarth
On the whole joining debate:

Lyle is better than either Hans or Diane despite his lower join level. I'd take Lyle over either of them.

Bleu... is trickier. No weapon, and his low level combined with no egress makes him a much tougher prospect to catch up. I'd vote no on Bleu despite him joining near Lyle.

Have to admit I haven't been following this very closely, but glancing at the discussion, it looks like there aren't any immediate decisions I would have to make about which characters we use. Are we booting anyone for Zylo?

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

by Simpelicity
Whatcha got against Mae? She's got the best defense of the entire force right now. Sure, her attack is low, but it's just the same as Balbaroy. Personnally, I'd kick either Balbaroy, Diane, or Lowe. Diane would probably be my final choice. Balb will be useful the battle after, and extra heals don't necessarily hurt right now...

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Fri May 17 2013 3:12am

Mae is hitting for 1 damage (Balbaroy would be too if not for the ring) but Balbaroy is more versatile with his flight. Diane has range and is therefore more versatile too. But f*ck Lowe, he sucks :)

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Fri May 17 2013 4:39am

Tanking a hit is also versatile when you need a hit tanked. But I guess we have other people that can do it too... as opposed to our wealth of competent archers and flyers.

That being said, as far as range damage goes, the mages count.

And done. Not a bad little battle. I was incredibly lucky with the Pegasus Knights. They didn't dodge attacks once and one even hung around for Zylo to get an early critical on him. Speaking of, so I put Zylo in and threw Diane out. It was a toss-up between her and Lowe, but I thought extra healing power might have been nice to deal with the Pegasus Knights. Turned out I didn't really need it, but whatever. Have fun with the Lazer Eye.

Oh, also equipped Mae and Ken properly with Power Spears and Mae was very useful. Went from 7 to 9. Khris, Lowe, Max, Balbaroy, Tao, Anri, Gort, Luke and Ken all went from 7 to 8 and Zylo's hanging out at 10. Also triggered Kokichi before I left Bustoke.

My battle is finished! The first thing I did was promote Zylo and purchase herbs for the battle party. (Don't worry, I didn't replace anyone.) The battle was fairly easy. There were no deaths. I got Mae and Ken up to Level 10. Everyone else except the healers made it up to Level 9 (I think).

I did make a recording of the battle, but decided not to post it to YouTube. Fraps wouldn't record Gens+ so I was forced to use Camtasia. However the video quality was not what I would have liked it, thanks to Camtasia.

**PLEASE NOTE** The save files will only work with Gens+ (There is a link in this thread.)


EDIT: I mean no disrespect to anyone, but I think Fusion might have been the better choice for this. Gens+ looks better, but Fusion is just easier to use. (At least for me.)

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Mon May 20 2013 12:36pm
by zexxar
Before the battle I promoted Ken and Mae and kicked out the midget healer for the awesome flying gramps also bought weapons for Balbaroy and Kokichi. Also gave Zylo the Quick Ring.
I also wanted to pick up the best character in the game ( :excited: ) but for some reason he wasn't there, although I talked to him at Gongs hut :confused:

I tried a lot to get everyone to level 10 and it worked for everyone except Max, Khris, Gong and Kokichi. And although I tried to level Khris by killing some enemies she didn't got a level becasue she missed those damn Pegasus all the time :( So did Max when he should have finished off Elliot therefore he didn't reached level 10.
The Power Ring cracked during the battle so make sure to repair it.

To record Gens+ with Fraps you need to record it in windowed mode (ie record aero desktop when it's in windowed mode). Window's quite small, but you can edit it to full screen later, whatever you use.

Also, hello fellow Youtuber.

That's strange because I met him in Alterone too, I don't know what we have missed...

For the character debate... We're all experienced players so we should be able to finish the game with any of them, as we have all different opinions about them I'll let the player who recruit decide (I think it's already what's happening anyway). Mine is to take at least Lyle as we don't have any more archer in the party. For the challenge and to make Simpelicity happy I'm not against using Bleu, if I remember correctly it already happened in a former Team game. But yeah, players using him in the beginning will need patience to baby him. Last thing, I hate Ken so if someone want to take him out I'll not complain... :)

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Mon May 20 2013 5:36pm
by Simpelicity
Bleu would be too much of a pain for even me to level up without using egress. You can pass on him.
ALSO, lookin' at it, I'M the one that gets to make that decision. I'll see how I feel when I get there.

Yeah the current system is fine, where we agree on who can't join in and then leave the rest for the player playing.

As for the secret hamster, was there something to be done right before the second battle? If so I forgot, I just came outside the ruin and fought my battle.

Well both characters named here have been removed for Guntz and Domingo.

No deaths, EVERYBODY(except Domingo) READY TO PROMOTE.

I used this battle for the only thing it's good for....catching up with the lower levels.

Also, I tested with Fusion and the state is compatible so Bulzome can record the Balbazak battle if he wants.

Cookies are fresh out of the oven. As soon as they can cool, you can have them.


But yeah, we'll stick with "rule out these characters and then let the player decide." This rule will possibly change as we go through some other games though (for example, SF2 is much more balanced as far as levels. There are still a few off though).

Pre-Battle phase:

Found a Shower of Cure (given to Khris), a Mobility Ring (given to Guntz), a Defense Potion and a Bread of Life. Bought some Healing Seeds and new weapons for Max, Kokichi, Guntz, Mae and Luke. Gong's Quick Ring has been given to Khris. Revived the old dwarf.

Battle:

No problems, My only fear was when Anri was attacked by a Hell Hound and left with 1 HP. I have been frustrated by Tao, she had many chances to kill someone but as she had already 96 exp. I had to wait the end of the combat to make her level up. I had some nice ones too by the way.

Gort -> LV 3: DF+4, SPD +2, HP +3

Luke -> LV 3: AT+2, DF+3, SPD+3, HP+2

Kokichi -> LV 4: DF+1, SPD+6, HP+6

Anri -> LV 4: DF+4, SPD+6, HP+2

Tao -> LV 3: AT+1, DF+3, SPD+6, HP+2

Domingo -> LV 5: AT+1, MP+5

Khris -> LV 4: AT+1, DF+2, SPD+2, HP+1, MP+3

Max -> LV 4: AT+2, DF+2, SPD+2, HP+2, MP+1

Guntz -> LV 4: AT+1, SPD+5, HP+2

Balbaroy -> LV 4: DF+4

Good luck for the rest of the game guys, I'll be back with the next generation...

Wow, noticed how long I didn't play Shining Force all the way through. I hope I didn't forget anything in Ring Reef, because I pretty much left immediately.


Tao level 4 Def+1 Agi+12(!) - too bad Speed is pretty much worthless once the character is faster than all enemies.
Gort level 4 Att+1 Def+3 Agi+3 HP+3
Anri level 5 Def+5 Agi+1 MP+1
Zylo level 4 Def+2
Mae level 4 Att+1 Def+3 HP+12(!) - Now THAT's a stat I like a twelve in.
Luke level 4 Def+4 Agi+2 HP+3
Guntz level 5 Def +7 Agi+2 HP+5 - Did anybody say "tank"?
Max level 5 Def+8 Agi+8 HP+2 - And Guntz is immediately outdone by the main character wanting the spotlight.

And as if to prove some kind of point about his suckyness, Balbaroy missed all three attacks he did this battle and fell asleep afterwards.
No deaths. Surprising amount of double attacks on my end. Not that the battle is hard in any way. But still nice to have.

Unfortunately, Rusty is no longer with us. Didn't even put up a fight. :shifty:

No deaths
Tao got Dispel while Anri Learned Freeze 3.
Lyle got like 3 level-ups, I think.
Rusty...er I mean Kane was brought down slowly and painfully with Lyle's arrows.

Mine part is done. No losses, and quite a few level ups :

Lyle lv4 : 3DEF, 2SPE, 5HP

Lyle lv5 : 2ATK, 3SPE

Domingo lv8 : 3ATK, 2SPE, 2HP, 3MP

Zylo lv6 : 2DEF, 3SPE, 1HP

Guntz lv7 : 2HP

Khris lv7 : 2ATK, 3HP, 2MP

Kokichi lv7 : 1ATK, 2DEF, 4SPE, 1HP

Lyle lv6 : 3DEF, 2SPE, 1HP

Balbaroy lv6 : 2DEF, 6SPE, 4HP

Gort lv7 : 5DEF, 4HP

Zylo lv7 : 9ATK, 1DEF, 1SPE, 2HP

Balbaroy lv7 : 5DEF, 2SPE, 2HP

Tao lv7 : 1ATK, 9SPE, 2MP

Anri lv7 : 1DEF, 1SPE, 4HP, 3MP

Max lv7 : 1ATK, 3DEF, 1SPE

Lyle lv7 : 3SPE

That is 16 level ups, although quite a few were just already almost there.
Luke is the only one left at lvl6, and he's at 76 experience. Tao is still stacking up the speed, and Zylo went approximately from worst attack to second best in one level up. Nothing much to report otherwise.

EDIT : Oh wait yes I do : in a (failed) attempt to not kill his target, Lyle was unequipped from the power ring. I'd suggest you re-equip it or pass it along to someone else (it's a toss up between him and Balb).

Here's the save.

Battle done, but kind of derpy. Domingo got wiped out early by a double hit that was critical both times. What the hell SF1?

Otherwise, everything went as expected. Grabbed treasures and killed Mishaela and so forth. I swapped Krhis' Agility Ring for the White Ring. Both Power and Evil Rings need repairing.

There were not a lot of level ups to go around this battle, but the ones we got were mostly nice. The force is all hanging out between level 7 and 8. More details on that shortly.

So, that lull at work never came arund. So a little later than hoped, here's the game!

Rez'd Domingo. Fixed Power ring. Tried to fix the evil ring, but couldn't find anyone willing to fix a cursed item. Whiners.

Bought assault shell for Lyle, bought Great Axes for Luke and Gort. Sold Luke's Battle Axe. Bought another Healing Seed for Luke.

Got thrown in prison. Shoulda said I WAS a spy. Ditched Balbaroy for Musashi. Yay, Musashi!

Equiped the Halberd to Guntz, gave Musashi the Mobility Ring

Luke picked up a Doom Blade from a Durahan

Domingo lvls to 9! Def+3

Zylo lvls to 8! Def+4, Speed+2, HP+2

Lyle lvls to 9! Def+2, Speed+2

Guntz lvled to 8! Def+2, Speed+1, HP+2

Gort lvled to 9! Speed+2

Tao lvled to 8! MP+1

Musashi lvled to 11, because everything he hit died. Atk+1, Def+3, HP+1

And that's the match! It took me 3 tries! Lousy Max not frontlining well!

Guntz is pretty fast on his own, and Musashi was really slow. I equipped the halberd for the extra damage. He still has... whatever his other weapon was, if you want to use it for the range. Generally I'll run my knights with a lance and a spear, and just switch based on what position they're in.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Sat Jun 08 2013 5:52am

OK, looks like I'm first! :)

Pre-Battle phase

It was a mess with all the rings! I reorganised it. Mobility Ring has been given back to Guntz. Balbaroy's Power Ring to Zylo. Quick Ring to Luke. Unequipped Black Ring to Musashi (should have been given to Luke actually, he missed some kills and needed more than him). Kokichi has been uncured, Evil Ring repaired then equipped again on him -Damn, Kokichi is cursed! Bought a Chrome Lance for him (what happened to his previous weapon??) and some Healing Seeds for those with empty slots. Sold old weapons.
Found a Devil Lance and a Turbo Pepper. As I supposed Musashi will be part of the final party, I used directly the Turbo Pepper on him. I prefer on him rather than Guntz because of the possibility of a minor bonus. Happily it was a +2 MOVE for the samurai!

Battle
I did an abuse use of the Sword of Light, free Bolt LV 2 how I could do it differently? With his LV 11 I only used Musashi as meat shield, he didn't attack once...oh and I hate lasers!

Max - LV 9: AT+3, DF+4, HP+4 (coool)
Kokichi - LV 9: AT+1, SP+1, HP+6
Khris - LV 9: SP+4
Anri - LV 9: AT+2, SP+4, HP+1, MP+6, learns Bolt :)
Zylo - LV 9: SP+4, HP+2
Luke - LV 8: DF+5, SP+1, HP+4
Domingo - LV 10: AT+2, SP+4, HP+1, MP+1
Max - LV 10: DF+6, SP+3, HP+1
Guntz couldn't destroy a Torch Eye with his crappy Power Spear (I should use the Halberd!) and Zylo has been surrounded and "Laserized" by 2 of them. :( That attack was totally unexpected, other characters was closer than him. Maybe I could save him if I didn't forget Khris had the White Ring...
Guntz - LV 9: AT+3, DF+4, HP+4
Tao - LV 9: AT+2, MP+4
Khris - LV 10: AT+3, DF+4, HP+4, learns Aura :)
Kokichi found a Valkyrie and equipped it.
Lyle - LV 10: AT+2, DF+1, HP+3
Kokichi - LV 10: SP+5

Battle done: 1 casuality - Zylo

Battle done.

No deaths. Killed all enemy units despite Chaos hounding me for half the damned battle. Musashi as a sentinel saved the day.

Evil ring is smokey. Cure then repair it. Healing seeds will need replenishing.

Haven't used any stat boosters, despite thinking about it. Passed them around to be all close together.

Changed up some equipment, mainly between Kokichi and Guntz. Given Kokichi's mobility and flight, I gave him the Devil Lance. He is also equipped with the Evil Ring, and has the Black ring for use also. Guntz, being on land, I gave the Valkyrie to, and he retains the Halberd for use.

And we conclude the best battle in the game! To be fair, it's not as tedious as some of the other mountainous maps, but still. Anyway, the Armed Skeletons seemed to have a strange aversion to actually killing anyone, they bypassed several opportunities to try to go after a target with full HP. What a game this would have been without the ridiculous AI. Anyway, I recommend more healing seeds, and otherwise I'm out for SF1.

Gort Level 11 def 3 speed 2
Kokichi Level 12 defense 3 speed 1 hp 3
Zylo Level 11 attack 2 defense 6 speed 5
Guntz Level 12 attack 3 defense 1 speed 3
Luke Level 10 defense 1
Domingo Level 12 def 3 speed 4 mp 5
Max Level 12 attack 3 speed 2 HP 6
Khris Level 12 speed 4 hp 2 mp 2
Lyle Level 12 attack 1 hp 2
Anri Level 11 defense 1 speed 1 hp 4 mp 3

I just realized that I get to kill all 11 chimeras in this game........ :(


I replaced Gort with Hanzou. Han had better stats in everything and had 1 less level. Zylo was also an option but he's unique, while we still have Luke to deliver helicopter attacks. Besides, I was confident Zylo would have better attack growth than either gladiator, now that we have (near) ultimate weapons.

Battle done then!

No losses, and mostly no problem either, with the units being static and all. 2 close calls though : Zylo survived a chimera double firebreath attack with 1HP :shock: and Guntz survived another double fire attack, but from a cerberus this time (with 5 HP).

A few level ups, but I wasn't paying close attention to it. I just made sure Tao and Hanzou got some kills. I also took advantage of the 2 side groups to farm just a bit of experience. Just a bit. Still not a whole lot of level ups though.

Guntz lv13 : 6DEF, 3AGI
Luke lv11 : 6DEF, 2AGI, 2HP
Musashi lv13 : 1ATK, 4DEF, 3HP
Tao lv11 : 3MP
Khris lv13 : 2DEF, 1AGI, 5HP, 2MP
Anri lv12 : 1MP
Hanzou lv11 : 9AGI, 4HP
Zylo lv12 : 3ATK, 2 HP
Luke lv12 : 4DEF, 6HP
Domingo lv13 : 1ATK, 2DEF, 6HP, Freeze 3
Lyle lv13 : 1DEF, 6AGI

Anri beat Tao for lamest level up award by 2 MP, and Domingo got the best level up award because Freeze 3 is a thing now.

The save state is a little later than it should be, I was distracted and pressed A after Ramladu was done invoking robots. You're in the next battle already. Talking about which, here's the save state

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Fri Jun 14 2013 3:05am

HP-Attack-Defense

Gort: 39-47-45
Hanzou: 41-49-36
Luke: 32-50-35

Why was Gort benched and Luke not? o.O

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Fri Jun 14 2013 4:04am
by Simpelicity
Was it 45? I thought it was 35 defense. Oh well, my bad. :damnit:

At least Luke got 10 defense with his 2 levels, he caught up somewhat. And he's got better attack. But you can still bench him for Gort if you want to. He's still lvl 11 I think (Gort is. Tao and Hanzou as well) To me they're both pretty equivalent, especially now with Luke kinda caught up in defense.

EDIT

'kay I just doublechecked and he really HAD 35 defense on my end (Gort did). I don't know what you (or your/my emulator) are smoking MXC.

Yes well, as it has previously been shown before, my memory of this game isn't top notch. I thought we'd get some time to move freely between the battles, so I decided to not bother with it and leave it for after the battle. :(

Well, you can't roam as freely in SF1, but you can still move around and talk to people. It ain't a Gaiden.




Anyhow, battle's done. I missed a head, because I thought (memory again, har har...) that you had to kill all heads, but nope, so the fire head gets to survive... I hope that's not a problem.

Otherwise, everything went fine. Nobody doubled when I needed them not to, so everyone lived happily 'til next battle! I didn't pay much attention to experience (or level up gains), because I figure at this point it doesn't matter much. They're all pretty good. I just used the jets to make sure the lvl 12s (Tao and Hanzou) got to 13 but that's it. They were mostly good level ups too, except Luke.

I suggest stocking up on healing items a lot. Just in case. Our pockets feel a little light at the moment.

EDIT I didn't forget anything. Nope! Nothing at all! :shifty:

2nd EDIT I forgot to mention it but I haven't used any stat buffing item........ so yeah, have fun MXC.




I need to do something about that memory of mine.... :(

I distributed the Milk and Bread to the orphans Tao and Lyle. Chicken went to Guntz. Wine went to Max because I felt like it >.>

Some highlights:

Hanzou gained 5 HP
Kokichi gained 8 DEF
Lyle gained 4 ATT, SPD, HP
Zylo gained 3 ATT, 6 DEF
Anri gained 5 MP
Hanzou gained 4 ATT, 6 DEF, Learned SHIELD
Luke gained 6 DEF.
Musashi gained 6 HP
Darksol smacked Max's ass twice for 2 damage
Tao gained 6 MP
Tao torched Darksol.

I didn't buy any healing items before the battle as I'm in a bit of a rush. Items aren't necessary though since this is only SF1. :shifty:


No deaths, despite me pretty much trying to get Zylo killed :lol:

As far as characters go for SFCD, I think we can just leave it up to the people playing unless you guys want to talk it out. I don't think anyone joins low in levels but correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Sun Jun 16 2013 5:49pm
by Simpelicity
Maytag and Stock join rather low but it's very feasible to catch them up, in their first battle even, although that might not be advisable. I was lvl 9 when I got them, I could catch them up but then next battle everyone's lvl 9, if we don't want people to get above 10 that would get annoying fast.

From my one playthrough, all characters seemed viable, so yeah, I don't think it'll matter much.

Meh, if no one wants to catch them up I will. That battle is still reserve. And I like Mayfair.


Um about those rules, if the previous person took losses and the game transitions directly into the next battle, are we allowed to egress?

Second question, if that egress would have us restart the previous battle, I imagine it is forbidden, even if losses were taken previously?

You can egress to revive (unless it requires you to do the previous battle) but if someone has a loss and they aren't revived, that person can redo the battle or just make the next one suffer. :D

Captain's Log, Stardate 16062013
We have made a suprising amount of progress. I want to thank the entire crew for their determination, which was key for this great success. But while the battle with the fierce Dark Dragon may have been an end... It was merely the end of the beginning.
The war has shown us that we have to be prepared as possible. The ship will go to stardock to be refitted with the latest Mega-CD technology.
As for me... I think it is time to drop the juvenile hot-headedness and start with a more thought-out and diplomatic approach to things. We are about to enter the Next Generation.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When I started the game I was surprised to hear voice acting. Didn't remember that. I set the difficulty to normal. 'Cause flock waiting for people to vote on that.
Wow! Anri, Lowe and Ken all got extremely weak and stupid in the past 20 years. Lowe even called for a healer, even though there's a good chance he's the second or third most powerful healer in the world!

And of course, thusly the kids have to do all the work. Guess Max really was holding the old force together.
Though in a suprising move that shows at least a small amount of competence, the Queen's trusty sidekicks don't send us out unprepared, but decked out with some of the best weapons and magical rings in the kingdom! Heck yeah!
Then again, Lowe COULD have helped a little when we got attacked by Woldol's lackeys. Lazy bastard.

Somehow, after falling into a deeper sleep by a bat's attack, Nick counterattacked and killed same bat, leveling up! Either Nick is so badass, he literally kills in his sleep... or he turned over in his slumber, squishing the bat.
Nick lvl 2! HP+1 MP+1 ATT+2 DEF+1 AGI+1
Apis lvl2! HP+2 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1
Shade lvl2! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1

No deaths.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since savestates of CD games are a) too big and b) don't work properly the only files I included where the files found in the RAM folder of gens.
And they are also on the first turn of the second battle, since there isn't a city screen between the first two encounters.
I hope those are the only files one needs. If you have to replace your own RAM files, back them up beforehand so you don't loose your own progress! Unless you don't care, of course.
Taking a short glimpse into the latest Team SFCD thread, you may have to load the RAM manually in the Sega CD menu, though I'm not quite sure how to do it and weither or not this is really necessary. If somebody has experience with this, please elaborate.

These files should do it. I deleted every other file just to make sure you can only take the correct one. Sorry for the inconvenience, should've thought about that earlier.

That appeared to work fine. It still showed 2 save files, one in internal, and one in cartridge. I have deleted the internal one.

We now have 2 medical herbs to our name! Yay!

No deaths, and kept everyone nice and level.

So I got Gens to finally run sfcd, but it's got slowdown, and I'm not talking about text speed. If somebody knows how to fix, plz tell :)

Anyhow, I finished my battle, so I can join the long break club now :)

Level ups went like this :

Nick lv4 : 1HP, 1MP, 2ATK, 2DEF, 1SPE
Cray lv3 : 2HP, 1MP, 3ATK, 1DEF, 1SPE
Sig lv4 : 1HP, 1MP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 2SPE
Shade lv4 : 1HP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1SPE
Apis lv4 : 2HP, 2ATK, 2DEF, 1SPE
Ruce lv4 :2HP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1SPE
Cray lv4 : 2HP, 1MP, 3ATK, 1DEF, 1SPE, Heal2
Wendy lv4 : 1HP, 2MP, 1ATK, 1DEF, Freeze

Everyone's lvl 4, we got freeze, Cray is gaining his usual mountain of attack growth, and Apis decided to get a good lvl up after an apparently poor performance. That's it for me. Unless this attachment doesn't work.

This would have been done yesterday, except a freak initiative roll saw the Mage move twice back to back, and Blaze Nick into oblivion from full health.

Well f*ck you too, RNG, this time your ass is mine.

No deaths, as it should be when the game can't cheat. f*cker.

Got everyone 2 level ups each.

No deaths
Everybody reached level 7
Got all the items(Steel Arrow went to Shade, Middle Sword went to Nick, I think Apis has the Pimento/Pepper)

Battle went smoothly. Used a full hp Apis to take the Blaze 2 at the end.

Battle went pretty well. Only one death. Discovered that the way SF CD autoscrolls makes it really hard to catch all the stat details on levelups :(
Notes:
Max lvled to 8! Hp+3 Mp+2 Def+1 Agi+1
Cray lvled to 8! Hp+2 Mp+1 Atk+2 Def+1 Quik+1
Claude lvled to 7! Hp+1 Def+2 something else something else, no one cared.
Apis lvled to 8! Hp+1 Atk+1 Def+2 quik+1
Shade lvled to 8! hp+1 atk+1 def+1
Wendy lvled to 8! hp+1 mp+2 and some other stuff
Ruce lvled to 8! hp+2 def+2 picked up an antidote.
Nick lvled to 9! hp+3, probably some other stuff
Used one of Cray's medical herbs and one of sig's
Claude died when the dark mage unexpectedly broke his attack off to go help the Brass loader :damnit:
cray lvled to 9! hp+2 or soemthing
Apis lvled to 9! atk+1 def+2 quik+1
Sig lvled to 8! hp+2 mp+1 at+1 def+1 and found a medical herb.

That's why message speed was set so low, so we could follow that.


And waddya mean, no one cares? Claude is pretty good. Also, there's only AGI after defense, not sure what your second something else is. True that few care about agility though.

For the reserve, usually battles to the death involve the fastest guy that isn't the previous guy, I think. We'll see. Whoever does it, I hope you level the newcomers.

I set the text speed to fastest and just used esc to pause the game to read the level ups. I hate slow text. Though having it not autoscroll would be even better - no idea why they changed that in SFCD.

You put the save in the RAM folder. You can put the BIOS wherever, just tell Gens where it is in the configuration menu. I don't think you'll have to load the ram in the bios, I didn't have to at any rate.

I would've edited as usual but thx :)

So before the battle, there were new weapons to be bought, so I bought them. But Shade's bags were full so I decided to just sell his arrows as I sold everyone else's old weapons and THEN buy him a new one. Except I forgot. :blush:
I only noticed halfway through the battle. Since we can't egress and I didn't feel like restarting, we have one arrow and 2 archers, and the shop's gone now. Have fun with that :evilgrin:

So anyways, for the battle, it took FOREVER, because I decided everyone was getting a promotion. It SHOULDN'T have been possible, but I used the poison on Apis to farm experience for the healers (never doing THAT again...) and I still managed it. No losses either. Here's how the level ups went :

Stock lv5 : 1HP, 1ATK, ? ? I got distracted by someone...
Mayfair lv6 : 1HP, 1MP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Stock lv6 : 1HP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Mayfair lv7 : 2HP, 1MP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Stock lv7 : 2HP, 2ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Stock lv8 : 2HP, 1ATK, ? was writing down the rest, didn't see it. either def or agi, not both.
Mayfair lv8 : 2HP, 2MP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI, Hell
Apis lv10 : 1HP, 1ATK, 1DEF
Shade lv10 : 1HP, 1ATK, 1AGI
Stock lv9 : 2HP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Claude lv10 : 2HP, 2ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Mayfair lv9 : 1HP, 2MP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Sig lv9 : 1HP, 2MP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Cray lv10 : 1HP, 1MP, 2ATK, 2DEF, 1AGI, boost
Ruce lv10 : 1HP, 1ATK, 2DEF, 1AGI
Wendy lv10 :2HP, 2MP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Stock lv10 : 1HP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Sig lv10 : 1HP, 1MP, 2ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI, dispel
Mayfair lv10 :1HP, 2MP, 1DEF, 1AGI

That's 19 level ups...
Cray has boost now (yay), Stock has 1 more atk than shade (when equally equipped...), and Mayfair got a spell that more often than not does less damage than her physical attack...

Off to whoever's next!

I'm 99.99% certain that Egressing calls back the previous shop unless you advance a chapter. Since Bazoo is at the end of one, I should be fine.

Managed to get to the shop and get the arrow back for Shade, which turned out to be an absolute necessity for this battle.

No deaths. I was determined to get a level up for everyone, so I abused the priests heals. Got a bit close at the end though when Nick went double Crit crazy on his ass with MP to go, leaving Ruce and Apis still to level. Ruce was close, Apis was a ways away, so it literally came down to boxing the sniper in, hitting unequipped, and using a medical herb each to make the exp stretch far enough for both of them to level.

Stock has a Quick Ring.
Nick has the Steel Sword.
Apis has a new Power Spear.
Ruce has a new Battle Axe.
Wendy still only has a wooden rod because no one thought to buy her a Power Stick, and I didn't check for this tomfoolery. Seriously, her attack isn't bad. Not great, but it's good for the occasional pikey finish when she's equipped properly.

Ah, that's a nice trick to know. And nice job on the level ups! You went about as obsessive as me there :)

I usually only bother to give weapons to heals, I figure the mages have spells to kill things (while healers don't, at least not a decent one...)

I'm conservative with my MP, so I like to have the best equipment for opportunities. One such opening actually occurred after I'd spotted this and I burst out with "Curse you cheap-skate doughbag whomever doesn't buy mages staffs!" when I had to waste 2 MP on a Blaze 1. I don't often mind, but it robbed me of a Blaze 2 I needed later against the pegasus trio, and I was like "CURSE YOU AGAIN CHEAP-SKATE DOUGHBAG!"

I should clarify that I did not know who was responsible for it. I forget when Power Sticks are first available.

Everybody except Claude and Wendy are level 3(but both of those have 90+exp)
Protect Staff went to Wendy while Shade gains a point of Attack over Stock with the Assault Shell.
Bazoo gets smacked with Wendy's Staff and runs away with his tail between his legs.
Yeesha joins the force at level 10.

Promoted Yeesha, she exchanged her Power Staff with Wendy's Guardian Staff. For each useless weapons I sold I bought one Healing Seed (but finally I haven't used any them).

Once you played SF1 with terrific post-promotion levels up, it's sad to see how terrible they could be in SFCD for some characters...

Claude LV 3 - HP +1, AT +2
Wendy LV 3 - HP +1, MP +1, AT +1, AG +1
Nick LV 4 - HP +2, MP +1, AT +2, DF +3, AG +1
Apis LV 4 - HP +2, AT +1, DF +3, AG +1
Ruce LV 4 - HP +2, AT +1, DF +2

Don't know why but Lizardmen wanted to slaughter Stock, they prefer to move further to hit him instead of Nick who is closer... Is it because he has the higher agility? (he has the Quick Ring equipped)

Yeesha LV 2 - HP +1, AT +1, DF +1
Mayfair LV 4 - HP +1, MP +1, AT +1, AG +1, Hell became LV 2

The Bishop did a smart move and cast Dispel on Yeesha and Mayfair. Yeesha who was impatient to gain a level attacked him and knock him out with a double (and a critical) attack!

Yeesha LV 3- HP +1, AT +1, AG +1, Blaze is LV 3 (With the 2 levels she got she didn't gain any MP!)
Shade LV 4 - AT +1, AG +1
Wendy LV 4 - HP +1, MP +2, DF +1, AG +1
Cray LV 4 - HP +1, MP +1, AT +3, DF +3, AG +1 (tank!)

Battle done, everybody is alive.

I hope the file will work, I managed to play with Gens+ but it looks like the brm file has not been modified since yesterday.... Tell me if something is wrong.

Bought new weapons for everyone . Got Domingo and all of the dropable items. No casualties.

There was a funny bug where a Gargoyle teleported himself to a point he should be unable to reach ... maybe it was a glitch due to the frameskipping I had used.

That's what the Gargoyle (G) did:

GX-
X-X
-X-
-XX


-X-
XGX
-X-
-XX

The X are my characters which I position to avoid AoE damage and he got in beween them and casted Dispel on the 3 characters on the bottom. :lol:

Anway the level ups:
Claude level 4!
HP +2 Att+3 Agi +1

Stock level 4!
HP +2 Agi +1

Sig level 4!
HP +2 MP +1 Att +2 Def +2 Agi +1

Apis level 5!
HP +2 Def +2 Agi +1

Yeesha level 4!
HP +1 MP +1 Att +1 Agi +1

Shade level 5!

Gyan level 2!

I hope I don't oversee any secrets in this or any battle I'll play, because I have nearly no idea where any of them are. I only played the game once, after all.
Kicked out Apis for Domingo. Probably should have gotten rid of low-level Gyan or Wendy with her horrible spells at this point but I kinda felt like going caster-heavy.
Damn I love how the Freeze animation looks in this. I think the intent was the same in SF2, but they didn't pull it off nearly as well in the perspective part of things.
I think Nick critted, double attacked or countered in every battle scene he was in. Bitchin'!


Stock lv6 HP+1 ATT+2 DEF+2 AGI+1
Yeesha lv5 HP+1 ATT+1 AGI+1
Nick lv6 HP+2 MP+1 ATT+2 DEF+2 AGI+1 learned BOLT!
Mayfair lv5 HP+1 MP+1 - Wow. Considering that career in being the force's advisor/sidekick, I see?
Ruce lv5 HP+3 ATT+2 DEF+3 AGI+1 - Now THAT's a level up.
Gyan lv3 HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+3 AGI+1
Wendy lv5 HP+1 MP+1 ATT+1 AGI+1 FREEZE level 2!
A SMALL WHISP OF SMOKE ROSE FROM RUCE'S NEARLY ACQUIRED HEAT AXE!
Claude lv5 HP+2 ATT+3 DEF+1
Cray lv6 HP+2 MP+1 ATT+2 DEF+2 AGI+1
Nick lv7 HP+2 ATT+1 DEF+2 AGI+1
Sig lv5 HP+3 DEF+3 AGI+1
Yeesha lv6 HP+1 MP+2 ATT+1 DEF+2 AGI+1 learned BOLT!
Wendy lv6 HP+1 MP+1 ATT+1 DEF+2 AGI+1
Ruce lv6 HP+2 ATT+1 DEF+3 AGI+1
Gyan lv4 HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+3 AGI+1

Spoils of War: A Heat Axe, a Critical Sword, a Halberd and a shitton of level ups. Nick has the Critical Sword but needs to equip it. Don't forget to repair the Heat Axe. Oh and Chester Higins Kashing joined the force! Wierd to hear the SFII jingle for that in a game that tries so much to look like SF1.
No deaths.

Actually I have to agree, excepting his floating ability who was useful, he quickly ran out of MP and the 1 damage he did after with his physical attacks were useless. He can't use any Rings. For the Fizzle Ball battle, I recommend ehow to swap him for Gates.

MXC wrote:Gyan is a twat, kick him out.

Well err...too late. A Halberd without owner is sad so Kashing replaced...Sig. As zexxar and Drakonis kept Gyan and worked on him, I decided to let him in the party, I also used him in the past, he's not so bad.

Pre-Battle Phase:

Promoted Kashing then gave him the Halberd and the Quick Ring. Yeesha has the Black Ring (unequipped) and Mayfair the Demon Rod (still unequipped - actually I can't remember what kind of curse are in SFCD).
Repaired the Heat Axe and bought some Seeds. Noticed a Protect Ring was on the deals section, it was expensive but I supposed we don't need money for the moment, so I bought it and gave it to Mayfair. Then I remembered the trick with the Protect Rings of battle 1 but as the deals section is now empty I supposed they are now deap in the sea...

Battle

I Split the Force into 2: Nick, Ruce, Kashing, Wendy, Mayfair and Stock took the long road with plains. Gyan, Cray, Claude, Domingo, Yeesha and Shade took the short road with mountains.
When a Worm attacked Shade and poisoned him I realized I only had one Antidote and the only character with Detox is now...on the reserve team! :damnit:

Shade LV 7 - HP +1, AT+1, DF+2, AG+1
Domingo LV 4 - MP+1, AG+1
Claude used the only antidote on Shade
Kashing LV 2 - HP+2, AT+1, DF+3, AG+1
Mayfair LV 6 - HP +1, MP+1, AT+2, DF+1, AG+1, learns AURA!
Cray LV 7 - HP +1, MP+1, AT+2, DF+2, AG+1, Heal became LV 3
Domingo LV 5 - HP+2, MP+2, AT+1, AG+1
Kashing LV 3 - HP+2, DF+3
As I was babying Kashing I used spells I never use like Sleep and Muddle. This last one is pretty useless as the enemies continued to attack Nick. By the way, Kashing with his hands full couldn't catch the Buster Shot...
Stock LV 7 - HP+1, AT+2, DF+1, AG+1
Gyan LV 5 - HP+3, AT+2, DF+3, AG+1
Claude LV 6 - HP+1, AT+2, DF+2, AG+1
Kashing LV 4 - HP+2, AT+1, DF+3, AG+1
Stock is poisoned and it will be like that until the end of the battle. He was again the main target.
Ruce LV 7 - HP+3, AT+1, DF+2, AG+1
Yeesha LV 7 - HP+1, MP+2, DF+1, AG+1
While I was playing with the last Minotaur and waited for low leveled to arrive, he suddenly attacked Domingo and smashed him with a Double and Heavy attack - Domingo was defeated! :damnit:
Kashing LV 5 - HP+2, AT+1, DF+3, AG+1
Gyan avenged our poor jellyfish and should be near to gain a level.

Battle done: Domingo is defeated, Stock is poisoned, a Buster Shot is on the deals section

Gates joined the Force!

I can rest now, my next battle is 18 battles later. Wow.

Sig kind of sucks too. Good ol' Gong syndrome.

Sig sure, but I think that's just because Cray is better in everything... otherwise he'd still be pretty decent. Gyan, on my one try with him, needed help with his attack (not to mention his attack animation is awkward), but he was pretty good at not dying. I think that again, he's kinda bad just because most other characters are also kinda good at not dying, but they also have a naturally good attack. Gyan still had one of the largest HP pool though, if not the largest, though I don't remember who else had a lot of HP.

Gyan can walk around and be a wall but it's too difficult to keep him leveled because his attack is terrible.

Actually I only kept him because he was the 12th character back then and I was to lazy to get Domingo without getting any EXP so that I can Egress and put him in for Gyan :lol:
And I thought if he's already here I level him because I wasn't sure if anyone wants him desperately, normally I always kick him out for Domingo on my playthroughs right away.

I only didn't kick him out because I forgot how strange his attack animation looked. And, primarily, because I forgot how much his movement range paired with rather poor attack suuuuuuuuuucks.
Believe me, if I remembered that he's kinda bad I would've kicked him out first.

I forgot you didn't had the choice :lol: He can still be useful for the 2 next battles especially equipped with the Mobility Ring. I suppose Shriek will replace him but it'll be DW's choice, maybe he likes him and we're stuck with him until the final battle :p

GATES REPLACES GYAN!

NO DEATHS
GATES is pretty much caught up, level-wise.
Claude has the Running Ring.
And.....that's about it.

Left the characters as-is and gave the Running Ring to Cray.

Whatever >.>

Domingo (6): 2/2/2/2/1 (I think... I saw a lot of 2s) And BOLT. Also found the power ring, given to Claude :D
Kasing (8): 2/2/2/2
Wendy (7): 1/1/1/1
Claude (8): 1/2/1/1
Domingo (7): 1/2/2/2/1
Yeesha (8): 1/2/1/2/1
Ruce (8): 2/1/2/1
Stock (8): 2/2/2/1
Gates (7): 1/1/2/1
Mayfair (8): 1/2/2/2/0
Wendy (8): 1/1/1/1/1

Claude almost countered/killed Dantom to steal Wendy's exp but he left Dantom with 1 HP :)

No deaths, hardly any heals cast.

SHRIEK JOINS THE YELLING FORCE

Final Chapter (4) is under way.

Killing Dantom so that he can do the next battle.

So, a good little battle overall. Gates and Claude are dead, the one due to double attack the other to Edmond OHKO'ing him. Kind of irritating, but oh well. Edmond got his silly self killed by triggering Nick's counter attack on his next move anyway which made me giggle. Everybody is at level 9... except for Gates who died at 8 and Mayfair and Cray who got to 10 by constantly healing everyone.

I'd recommend more healing seeds and perhaps an item shuffle. The king is dead, long live the king.

Wait you actually just save stated? I thought we weren't doing that with CD because it actually doesn't work. Try loading your thing and if it works, just get to the next save point, save, then package us the RAM. Maybe the RAM isn't working because you opened it and haven't saved yet.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

The save state was just a secondary option when the first file wouldn't load properly. I mean, I'm still getting my data to run so...

I tried the file on Gens+ but didn't manage to make it works...BUT it runs perfectly with Fusion! We have a hope to see this continue again. I don't know what happened with the brm file but I noticed while you are compressing the file if Gens+ has not been closed your last save is not considered.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Mon Jul 01 2013 3:23am

Gens+ was closed before I did any compression, and I've been fiddling around since. That's an interesting note on Fusion though. Honestly, I'm a bit lost on what else to try here.

When I gave it a whirl I got the error backup ram not initialized. Ect ect. If I'm not mistaken this means it's not seeing the file as a ram file, correct?
Demonic weasel, does your savestate work on your computer? If so, delete the ram file and load the savestate. Then save the game. It will force it to generate a new ram file. Is the new file also .crm?
If worst comes to worst, we may have to redo DW's battle using the previous savestate.

[EDIT:] Did some research, figured out how to initialize the ram. Formatted it, it actually just made a new brm file; completely bypasses the crm file. Tried renaming it to .brm, it read it but didn't find any save data on it.

[EDIT2:]Did some more research, as best I can tell Kega fusion stores its cartridge ram and backup ram separately. .crm is the cartridge data and .brm is the backup ram data. Did someone use kega for a battle? When Kega Fusion 3.64 loads a gens+ .brm file, it splits it into three files, a .crm a .brm and a .bak backup file. If you take the resulting .brm file and load it into gens+ it should still be functional. Save data is recorded on both so it should have captured the battle in question too.

It seems files from Gens+ can be read with Fusion but not vice versa. My only suggestion is to continue this Team game with Fusion...

You'll need bios you used for Gens+ (Option -> Set Config-> Sega CD). At the introduction screen when the game starts: File->Load RAM card. Good luck!

I somehow can't get it to work if I do it like Spear God described it.
Loading the game and while there is still the bios screen I load the RAM but no matter which file I load the cartridge is always empty when I look in the OPTIONS. And when I directly go to the game there's only the new game options. I really have no clue what is wrong as like I said I never used Kega for this. :confused:

I will see if I can recover the game tomorrow at work. theoretically, if we boot it up in kega and save the game again it will dump a new .brm file for its cackup.
Alternatively, if DW can load it into gens+ he can just delete the.crm file and save, forcing it to create a new file.

So FINALLY the battle is done. Many thanks to Spear God for solving this problem.

I bought new weapons and started the battle. Upon starting the battle Gates was kicked out for Randolf but I couldn't care less since Randolf is my fav book 1 knight anyway so I was fine and also got him some level. The battle went smoothly because I also advances as slow as the cursor was moving :lol:
Randolf got the Valkyrie. And I had no casualties.

Here's the point were I would actually list the level ups but I just rememered that I should note them when I was halfway through the battle and then decideded that I just leave it instead of starting a new.

Anyway here's the state:

Shade- 1/2/2/0
Domingo- 1/1/2/2/1
Ruce- 2/2/2/0
Nick- 2/0/1/1
Kashing- 1/2/0/0
Yeesha- 0/2/0/3/0
Randolf- 2/1/2/0
Stock- 1/1/2/0
Wendy- 1/0/1/1/0
Ruce- 1/0/2/1
Mayfair- 1/1/1/2/0 HEAL 4

Geppel was a wuss (two uses of Axe of Atlas and a dodged attack on Ruce). Everyone is level 11 except Nick (12). I got the Sword from the chest and the Axe from Geppel though.

No deaths. Equipment needs to be reworked and Stor's OCD will sort the items.

Besides, it's a team effort to knock out all the games, right?

Having watched the first two parts of the Wisdom LP...
Why does the princess' head consist to 50% or more of eyes in her portrait? It was especially hilarious to look at when it came up right after the Dark Elf who has way more realistic proportions. :D

Is Mars an idiot? Does he just assume that everything is all right after he failed to safe the princess and woke up in the same dungeon where he was knocked out by magic? Or does he just not give a f*ck and just takes his second sudden promotion in just 2 days instead of bothering to bring up the world-threatening conspiracy?

Who's great idea was it to put the boots on the same item slot as the sword? Especially since the B button doesn't have any item/magic yet? I hope there is some quick way of exchanging them sbloom just doesn't know about yet, otherwise the designers really dropped the ball on that one.

That's kind of a weird thing, actually. You'd think the son of a reputable soldier would have some clout, but then again, Kari is mimicking Satera's appearance, so by all rights she IS Satera, so anything Mars would say she'd counter and her father and the chancellor would side with her, thereby putting Mars' career and life on the line if he persisted the argument.

I don't know if there is a faster way to switch gear, if there is, I'd like to know. :thumbsup:
The B button is reserved for magic orbs that you gather as the game progresses. But yeah, I don't think Camelot was sure how to create a Zelda clone, but they did the best they could.

So... credits are rolling right now. Am I supposed to save somewhere? How does this work? Never done it before.

EDIT 1 : So the credits are done rolling and I'm back to the menu. DO I just take the RAM like this? It doesn't look like it registered anywhere that I beat the first book. Is that gonna be a problem later?

Keep using the same RAM file. IIRC when you start a new game it can use that save file for importing Nick's stats from book 1 to book 2, as well as some of the other repeaters like Claude and Randolf.

IIRC you can tell only by looking at the SCD bios page and opening the ram there, there's a save file that uses 1 block of memory; that's the completion data.

so basically I just close the game and package it?

Right so I just closed the game and tok the ram. I hope it kept it somewhere that I beat the thing.

The battle didn't go very well, because I wasn't aware I had to poke him with Nick to be able to damage him. I started the fight with him way too soon because of that. and then he got to my mages, which I had left waaaay at the back, and OHKOed them both with a demon breath. Subsequent demon breaths killed the 2 archers as well. But that's all for losses, thankfully. Nick did get the final blow (as well as the first and about 4 others), but the healer survived with half HP because I didn't want to go through another round, my mana was getting very low. Fun fact : Woldol can counterattack on your first attack with Nick, after his venom counter, making you sit through his ridiculous arm wiggle dance twice.

No it doesn't, they join with predefined levels and stats. Nick stats at same level are lower in Book 2 than in Book 1. Book 3 will use the "Nick" with the higher level among the 2 books and actually it's more interesting to not have the Nick of book 2 with a higher level than the one of Book 1. Book 3 will also choose the higher leveled Randolf and Claude but I don't know which ones are the most interesting to keep.

Simpelicity, do you remember at which level all those people were when you finished Woldol?

IIRC correct book 1 Claude is superior to Book 2 Claude.

And I think it doesn't matter which level they were at the end unless he saved right before dealing the finishing blow because it uses the levels from the point where it was actually saved the last time. So it would be more interesting to know the levels of the characters at the beginning of this battle if we want to keep the better version of those characters in Book 3.

I had a nice little report written up but then SFC made me log back in and deleted it.

So, everyone is level 2 (and alive), Luke isn't nearly as bad as he was before (thanks to a 1/2/3/2/1 level) and the Force consists of a bunch of crazy base jumpers except for Jaha who prefers to roll.

Finally got around to it. Apologies for the delay.

Straightforward. No deaths. Everyone is level 3. We have our first shop. Next person get buying. And if I reach my next battle and Natasha is still using a wooden rod instead of an Iron Rod/Bronze Rod/Power Staff/whatever rod is next in the progression, I will find out who is responsible and permaban them*.


* This is hyperbole, but seriously, don't be a digbag cheapskate. It's a few gold, and at this stage mages can actually do some damage.

The procedure is to save immediately. I did so. Next person deals with inventory. That's the way it's been done in every single team game ever run. It's just that now we can't use save states and have to go through the story a bit and get to the next battle or town.

If you've been playing otherwise, you've been playing it wrong.

Nah Stor nevermind me, I just read wrong. I thought you were complaining that the previous person hadn't done that already (not the previous person in the future). I know how it works, that's why I wrote what I did. The previous person was MXC and he was the first in this game, so he couldn't possibly have messed around with inventory. If something was wrong in your inventory this turn, you'd be the only one to blame.

Honestly this is probably the game where it's the most worth it anyway to equip mages. May has more attack growth than Deanna.

I see. Misunderstanding. No harm no foul.

No shop for me. Shop is in this town, which is why I commented. There may not be a new rod, but it's more a general statement. Not equipping mages/priests is a pet peeve of mine.

In SF2, it really is pointless to equip Kazin until you get the Guardian Staff. I like to leave him with the wooden rod though because I think it fits him. Either that, or he equips nothing and becomes a field medic :D

I disagree. I find his attack at least usable until the other characters' attack scores pull away; anything past power stick is meaningless until guardian staff.

Demonic Weasel, what emulator are you using for your game? That brm file is incomplete; it's only 8 mb compared to the 72 mb one I sent out. It looks like the brm file from Kega Fusion, which does not store the full game info on it. I'll see if I can restore it from the file.
[EDIT:] When I reformat the ram, it's giving me the option to start a new game for the first or second chapter, there are no saved games on the system, however. What we need to know now is A: did DW use Kega for this battle, and B: When the game was initially created, was it saved to cartridge or internal ram?

Guys, I seriously have no idea why my saves keep doing this. I've been using Gens+ and unless there's something specific about the process that I've missed somehow, I've been doing what we've always done for SFCD.

This time it's worst than the last one. Even Kega the file is empty. I don't know how you did the last time DW but you loaded a .crm as well, is it possible to do it again? I should be able to convert it to a file playabale with Gens+. If you can't, copy the save in the innerbackup and the cartridge and load it again.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Mon Aug 19 2013 6:22pm

Well here's a CRM. I have no idea if that will actually do anything for you as I had to sort of make it up; if this still doesn't work, I'd be willing to have another go at the battle. I think I might have sorted out what's been happening, but it'll take another shot to be sure.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Mon Aug 19 2013 10:04pm

It's the same result, for Kega it's empty. What is strange is the fact it's only a 8MB file. It looks like it's only the innerbackup not the cartridge directory...

What I would do DW, is make a savestate. Download a 2nd copy of gens +, fix the issue you figured out on the new copy, then load the savestate into it and save. This will produce a new, theoretically functional brm file. I haven't played with SFCD savestates, bu hopefully they're stable enough to accomplish that at least.

Sorry for the delay. Stuff happened then I forgot.

The fire mage got the kill on the ice mage boss and the sword of Hajya is ours! Everyone is promoteable except Eric who died around 6 experience away, I think. I had a lot of lvl 9s when it was just the boss and the healer so I engaged kind of awkwardly and he died in the process. Other than that everything went great. Here are the level ups :
Dawn lv9 : 1HP, 2ATK, 2DEF
Jaha lv9 : 1HP, 1ATK, 2DEF
Graham lv9 : 2HP, 2ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Luke lv9 : 1HP, 1MP, 2ATK, 2DEF
May lv9 : 1HP, 1MP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI, Slow 2
May lv10 : 2HP, 1MP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Slade lv10 : 1HP, 2MP, 2ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Deanna lv10 : 2HP, 1MP, 1ATK, 1DEF
Dawn lv10 : 2HP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Luke lv10 : 1HP, 1MP, 2ATK, 2DEF, 1AGI, Sleep
Jaha lv10 : 1HP, 1ATK, 2DEF, 1AGI
Graham lv10 : 2HP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI
Chester lv10 : 1HP, 2ATK, 1DEF
Natasha lv10 : 2HP, 2MP, 1ATK, 1DEF, 1AGI

Other than promotions and the one resurrection, you also have a poison or 2 to cure, not to mention buying weapons of course. Don't forget! :)

Here's the save.

Pre-Battle

Promoted Eric, sold weapons, bought seeds, reorganized items. Quick Ring now belong to Jaha, Slade has the strongness of a Monk now equipped with the Power stick.

Battle

Natasha, May (Freeze 3), Deanna and Luke became LV 2.

Dawn found a Battle Axe and gave it to Jaha.

Slade became LV 2 and learned Hell

A Hell Sniper surprised me by his dangerousness when he attacked Graham with his double and heavy attack! Too bad for me,the next turn was for a Pegasus Knight who didn't hesitate to finish the job. Graham is defeated! It was quick and very frustrating...

Jaha with his new weapon sliced some enemies and became LV 2 and 3

Eric became LV 2

Chester found a Running Pimento

Natasha killed the Arch Knight and aquired his Power Spear. She became LV 3, Freeze is now LV 2.

Battle done: 1 casuality. Power Spear to give to a knight.

Splitting of the Shining Force! It will be difficult to give that spear actually...

Ok, here we go! I just started the battle as I don't think there's anything I could do if I ergressed.

Deanna lvl 3! HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+3 AGI+1
May lvl 3! HP+1 MP+2 AGI+1
Slade lvl 3! HP+1 MP+2 ATT+1 AGI+1
Eric lvl 3! HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+1 AGI+1
Chester lvl 4! HP+2 DEF+3 - Why is this guy so floppin' tanky? :D
Deanny lvl 4! HP+2 ATT+1 DEF+3 AGI+1

If I had to sum up with battle in as few words as possible it would be "Boost lol". Having an entire party that only takes 1 damage from anything but spells is kinda broken. No losses, as if it wasn't obvious.

Almost that long for me too. It was one of my first games, and that was the second time I played it in its entirety and congrats, MXC. Get ready for a lifetime headache of epic proportions :D

So yeah. The point of the site is to have video playthroughs of the games. So if you guys want to actually do that, record with fraps, camtasia, camstudio, whatever, it'll be there for that. And if you'd like, you can send me the video itself, or maybe a YouTube link and I'll get a playlist going for it.

For those interested in wanting to send me a video directly, if you have Skype, my username is the same as this one.

Because video games are obviously more important than sport, I know.

Battle done! No losses, a few level ups but nothing extraordinary. Everyone is either lv7 or close to it. Dawn has the demon rod. And perspective went back to Deanna's group. Here are the levels :

Rhode lv6 : 2HP, 2ATK, 2DEF
Dawn lv6 : 1HP, 2ATK, 2DEF, 1AGI
Luke lv6 : 1HP, 1MP, 2ATK, 2DEF, 1AGI
Natasha lv6 : 1HP, 2MP, 1DEF, 1AGI
Dawn lv7 : 1HP, 2ATK, 2DEF, 1AGI
Randolf lv7 : 2HP, 2ATK, 2DEF, 1AGI
Rhode lv7 : 1HP, 1ATK, 2DEF, 1AGI

Here's the save.

Levels were had.

No deaths :)

If that was you asking if you could do it Antman, you shoulda just sniped it.

In any case, I took it and did it 'cause nobody was doin' it and I had time and this thing needs to keep moving. I didn't take note of what people got for stats because it's all pretty linear : they got the usual. I put Rhode back in in exchange for Slade (after fighting off an urge to kick out Natasha) : Sarah's the only healer we'll ever need, so we certainly don't need 3 (we still got 2 because I didn't put Dawn back in). Everyone's lvl 8 except Claude, he's 9. May got Desoul.

I also got a crap ton of new equipment but it's on all the wrong people, random people were picking it up. You got some item management to do. No losses, although I came close, I was being very reckless around Solo. Claude came close a couple times.

Here's the save.

Cheers!

OK I handle this now!

EDIT:

I left the team like that, only gave Dawn's power spear to Eric. Useless items have been given to members of the reserve.

Level evolution:

Deanna LV6->LV8
Eric LV7->LV8
Sarah LV6->LV7
Luke LV7->LV8
Chester LV8->LV9
Natasha LV7->LV8
Graham LV7->LV9
May LV6->LV8 learned Desoul
Randolf LV8->LV9
Slade LV6->LV7
Claude LV7->LV8

Randolf found the Healing Rain, Claude found the Critical Sword (equipped) and the Mobility Ring (given to Luke but I think I forgot to equip him), Eric gave the Heat Axe to Jaha (unequipped), Graham found 800 golds ( :thumbsup: ), May found Hig...sorry I can't...Hanzou and Claude received a Black Ring.

I hope Drakonis will use the new guy now :shifty:

Can someone plz kick out the excess healers? Natasha as well maybe? Just a thought. Rohde is still more useful than any of those, and he's a few levels behind now.

Also thanks for fixing that. I was about to have time for it again too, but that's ok. I shouldn't have missed that to begin with.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Tue Oct 01 2013 11:33pm

Rohde got kicked out by the game, I only replaced people that were better than those in their class. Higins should replace Slade though, just saying.

Didn't know Rohde was that good otherwise I would have put him in :lol:

PostPosted: Wed Oct 02 2013 1:17am

Lol I only played through this once (no wonder I forgot Hanzou too), it's not like I'm an expert on who's good or not. TBH most melee fighters seemed pretty bland to me. One of each seems fine in the end.

I was more going on a Force building logic. Having 3 healers is completely pointless currently, from there even Dawn would've been more useful (and she's awful in this run). Sarah can do everything in the long run but we might want a second healer a little longer, until she gets a mana pool going. Luke's better at this 'cause he can punch things on the side.
Natasha on the other hand is awful because of balance issues. HP scales way up way fast, she barely scratches them currently and that's when she uses a third of her MP. She could become useful with blaze4, but we'll only reach that with some grinding, and that ain't happening here. At least May can do some melee damage.

So yeah I'd kick Natasha and Slade, but I don't get to make that call.

My battles are done for SFCD so doesn't really matter what I think either haha.

It was a tactical choice of mine for this battle, as I had to split the force, I needed a true healer for both sides, Luke has not much MP and he used most of it to cast Detox (4 times!). As I supposed that Slade and Rohde are two characters who will be kicked out before the end of the game, I thought it was not important which one stay or not in the main party for my battle... I agree Slade has to be replaced by Hanzou even if it's Boost spell is quite useful.

Simpelicity wrote:Natasha on the other hand is awful

Yes, she sucks. She's even more useful with her rod than her spells... Do we have a chance she'll learn Blaze 4? Even with book 3?

You don't need to split in this battle. The only enemies to the left are this one 7 movement thingie right at the start and a few balloons. I just kill the first thing (it starts almost in range anyways), send Claude to collect the chests while the force goes right. The balloons on the left will catch up to the force around the middle, where you gather up to attack Solo. You get to kill everything relatively fast, without splitting. Claude can get back relatively fast, especially since he gets the movement ring out of it.

Kicked out Slade for Hanzou and Natasha for Dawn. Equipped all the magic weapons that lay around uselessly in the forces inventory.
We may want to use the stat boosters that we have. Otherwise I'll just use them on the final battle. And that'd be a shame.

Randolf lv10! HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+2 AGI+1
Jaha lv8! HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+2
The HALBERD is DAMAGED!
Sarah lv8! HP+1 MP+2 ATT+1 DEF+2 AGI+1 MUDDLE lvl 2!
Dawn lv8! HP+1 ATT+2 DEF+2
Claude lv9! HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+2 AGI+1
Luke lv9! HP+2 MP+2 ATT+2 DEF+2
Higins lv7! HP+1 MP+1 ATT+2 DEF+2 AGI+1 Learned KATON!
Jaha lv9! HP+2 ATT+1 DEF+2 AGI+1
Chester lv10! HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+2 AGI+1
Sarah lv9! MP+2 ATT+1 DEF+2 AGI+1
Claude lv10! HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+1 AGI+1
Eric lv9! HP+2 ATT+1 DEF+1

Remember to repair the halberd.

Now it's up to you guys to kick Ioms ass :)

I bought and sold tons of weapons, but totally forgot to repair the Halberd which I realized a few turns into the battle, so if you want to repair it you have to egress from the next battle as there is no shop at the moment.

As always I got the chest at first (Dawn got the Vakyrie and her Halberd went to Randolf, but I would consider giving it to Eric instead because then the knights should have equal attack values) and the Buster Shot is still with Deanne as I somehow managed to not being able to give it to either Graham or Chester :lol:

After the statue fired the first time I stormed up and thanks to the low attack values the enemies have on normal I never had anyone in a perilous state.
Dawn got quite some levels, Higins/Hanzou sadly not because he often had bad luck with the turnorder :( .

Because I had fun when it was mainly the two of us doing the battles....was kinda funny. :shifty:

Anyways, battle's done and no deaths. First thing I did was find Rush and have him replace Eric. I think everybody hit level 10, if not then the people who didn't are really close. Claude has the Dark Sword(he deserves it more than Lemon :shifty: )

May got the last hit in with her Demon Rod.

Sorry for the delay folks. I tried to get to it right away, but for some reason the file kept freezing up whenever I tried to revive the dead members. I fiddled around with that for a couple of days, came to no resolution, and said to hell with it and fought the battle undermanned. Went well. The king is dead. But so is Higgins.

Have fun.

Next weekend I'm starting a Shining Force LP, and I'm going to go through the whole timeline, because this thing was inspiring. If I ever catch up to us here we can definitely label this the Slowest team game of All Time, how about that? It's only a weekend project though, it's unlikely to happen... unless it stops being weekend only ;)

Really sorry for holding things up, but I pretty much didn't have 20 minutes to myself over the extended weekend.
First I ergressed and revived everybody. Then we where ready to battle!

May lvl 14! Missed the stats but Hell is now lvl 3!
Claude lvl 14! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1
Deanna lvl 14! HP+1 MP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1
Dawn lvl 13! ATT+2 DEF+1 AGI+1
Hanzou lvl 13! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1
Luke lvl 14! HP+1 ATT+1
Rush lvl 14! HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+2
Îom killed Claude...
Graham couldn't take Iom's breath anymore...
Dawn got frozen solid on doll patrol...
Randolf lvl 14! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1
May and Jaha are exhausted...
Randolf and Rush can't fight any longer...
The heavily wounded Deanna staggers up to Iom and delivers the final blow!

Unnecesary emo moment, happy ending and roll credits.
This was the Another Story of the Shining Force part 2. Have fun with part 3!

I'm sorry I didn't complete this earlier, but I had a bunch of things going on today. In the battle, there were no deaths. I'm not sure if I got all the items, as I couldn't remember where they all were. The items I picked up were the Herb, Venom Javelin, Cursed Ring and Mithril. I ended up using the default party. I can't remember who all leveled up, but among those were Claude, Deanna, Nick (those were the only ones I remember).

Giant Knuckle and Running Pimento were missed.

Of all things the most useful items were missed :lol:

Anyway while leveling make sure that Nick and Deanne don't get any levels so they don't learn Bolt 3 or 4 by the time my next battle arrives, that makes it a lot easier to get through that battle without any casualties ;)

They already had Bolt 3, so he couldn't really have done much evil to you. That being said, I've given him the occasion to be evil, if he wants to (he seems to).

Started off by egressing, because the default party is just bad. Wendy has more defense than Eric. I kicked out : Shade, Ruce, Dawn, Eric, Wendy, Natasha and brought in : Chester (just plain better archer), Kashing and Randolf (just plain better knights), Rush (better than either gladiator, Ruce was worse), May ('cause ATK mages are funny... and more useful than the mages I had) and Higins (probably the only magic user that's REALLY useful). That does mean that in addition to Nick and Deanna's bolt3s, May is 2 levels away from hers and Higins 1 level away from Raijin2. Just sayin' Zex, it may be worse than you imagined.
Other item management includes using the pimento on Luke, cursing May (with the ring) and Randolf (Venom javelin), then selling all the unused weapons (probably shouldn't have sold Randolf's javelin but did it anyway, now we're stuck with a cursed knight until we find the next lance) and using the money to buy 5 healing rains.

This was my first time doing the battle, but I checked a guide for item locations and got them all, so don't worry 'bout that. I did get some losses though. Claude killed Sarah in his confusion and nearly one-shoted May as well, because he's that awesome. And then towards the end a fire breath / necromancer combo killed both Chester and May. Otherwise the battle went smoothly. The only characters lvl 13 are May and Chester, everyone else is at least 14. Desoul 2 was learned by May. Stats were gained. The mystery staff and shut cannon don't belong to who they should. I used one of the healing rains, but you should have enough money to buy another one, I was only 5K away from a sixth one.

Here's the save.

Kisaragi has been defeated!

This battle was pretty easy (drawing the first Uzuki down the right side helped, especially since she opted to attack.) It also helped that Higins had a double attack on a Yayoi that had just spawned.

Higins learned Raijin 2
Luke learned Heal 4
May learned Bolt 3

:mwahaha: I didn't do it on purpose, it's just in my nature to have even levels.

I'll kick Bulldor's ass tomorrow.

I forgot how fun this chapter is. This makes me really want to do something similar for the Community Project :)

The heroes and Claude did no attacking but collect all available items. No deaths and no Mystery Staff abuse ;)

Sarah learned Aura 2.
I forgot the Paladins knew Boost 2, so that made things interesting. GOOD THING I HAVE BOLT 3!
Higins learned Katon 2.
I manged to get all the items but the inventory needs some rearranging.
I didn't use any Rains again so you should be fine there (plus plenty of gold to buy more.)
I kept a lot of the cursed stuff around so feel free to do whatever.
We now have a Lance to use on Randolf should you choose.
There is an unused Protect Milk somewhere too.
Seeing Gyan dressed up never gets old. Funny though, when Gyan's shadow appears, he's wearing the default outfit.

No deaths. Have fun with Bolt 3, zexxar :)

The battle was really disappointing ... normally when I play on Super Hard and on Hard Mode in this battle I really have to struggle to get everyone through this battle alive but today it was a cake walk.

It's really boring if the enemies are just as strong as your own characters, thanks to easy mode which MXC choose (DAMN YOU MXC :angry: ), with the exception of this one
WARNING: SPOILER!


Somehow they used a really stupid tactic which I've never seen before on hard mode ... all their magic users were on the front as one big crowd which already screamed "please kill us with Bolt" which I gladly did. After 3 Bolt 3 and one Raijin 2 and a few smacks here and there, all the dangerous enemies were dead while Aura 3 easily reapired all the small wounds they were able to inflict while I waited for my magicusers turns. I swiftly took down the remaining enemies so that Kashing,whom I sent out to pick up the items, didn't even had the time to get all important items which is why iI only got the White Ring.

Battle is done. Chapter complete.

I forgot to save the game before the final hit, but it's done. The gains seem irrelevent at this point since they aren't saved.

I lost May. Kisaragi decided to les it up and picked on her twice in rapid succession moments before Sarah's chance to heal her. If she'd picked on literally anyone else, I'd have escaped unscathed. f*ck you, lesbian AI.

I hear there's a patched rom that can be found somewhere on fantasyanime.com if you're still searching for it.

EDIT :

Okay I am having a small problem with the rom I found, the save state doesn't work. Is this normal and we have to exchange the saves again or should I fix something?

I would strongly suggest using the save files (it's also what we use in teh normal FC team). Because save states caused problems like crashing when you tried to load them or stuff like that.

And so begins a new chapter for the Shining Force.
With Max getting his has handily beaten by Bolt 3. Pretty sure that shouldn't have hurt him as much... Maybe he should put his armor back on.

I wonder if it was their intention to have pretty much everyone on the force except for Ian have babyfaces in their portraits... I mean I can understand it with Hawel, but the other guys' battle sprites look at least a bit older to me.
Well, our kindergarten wanders into the ancient temple and gets attacked by some thief's minions!

Mead lvl 2! HP+2 ATT+1 AGI+1
Paige lvl 2! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+2 AGI+1
Hawel lvl 2! HP+1 MP+1 ATT+1 AGI+1

And because Mead thought it was necessary to double-attack the last Goblin, he hogged some more experience and both Sonicette and Knuckles have to go without a level.
Thanks for the file Simplecity!

Wow, never played this game before; so exciting. What system was this for? The graphics look worse than sf1, lol.

So sonette shot a goblin twice and reached lvl 2! yay! got a lot of stats but I wasn't thinking and didn't write them down.
Meade lvls to 3! hp +1,att+2
knuckles crits for 2 dmg! lvl 2!! mp+1,att+3,def+2,agi+1
paige lvls to 3! hp+1,att+2,def+2,agi+1
Ian lvls to 2! hp+1,mp+1,att+1,def+2
hawel lvls to 3!hp+1,mp+1,at+1,def+1
sonette lvls to 3! it's a big lvling day over here! hp+1,at+2,def+1
paige lvls to 4!!att+2,def+1

adam and a thief named Ruburan join the force! And thus we set off in search of Max...

on another note, I noticed I had to change the name of the save file to match my rom's name. I suspect this might be a foreshadowing of things to come; likely a couple versions of the rom out there or something.

Sonette levels to 7
Mead levels to 7
Knuckles levels to 5
Hawel levels to 7
Ian levels to 6
... I forgot enemies appeared :(
Knuckles levels to 6 and learns Detox
Cynthia levels to 6 and learns Blast!
Knuckles levels to 7
Mead finds Protect Milk! (Passed to Cynthia to hold)
Mead finds Power Wine!
Cynthia levels to 7!
Ruburan has joined the Force! :)

I had some pretty masterful moves there to get Cynthia caught up in levels but the battle itself wasn't an issue. No deaths and Cynthia should now be able to gain levels a bit easier (more MP but also Blast). I did use a few herbs to get her some exp though, so replenish those (it was only 2 I think though.)

Alright Chapter 1 is over!

No losses were had, everyone is now level 8, and easier or not, I still favored gifting Cynthia some experience when the occasion came and she's 9, ahead of everyone.
I took note of all the level ups but I won't write them all down here, I suspect few actually read the whole thing. Here are the higlights :
- In 2 level ups, Cynthia got 3 ATK and 1 MP.... oh and the ever so important muddle spell. :(
- Mead got 2 defense to help out her atrocious defense... seriously, I only played through this once, but I don't remember her being this flimsy.
- Ian's horrible ATK increased by 3 in 2 levels.... so he's almost decent now. At least Cynthia didn't close the gap between them.
- Ruburan gained his usual lot of HP and defense (6 and 5 respectively) in his 3 level ups.
- Blaze 2 was learned. Fun times.

I only had Adam's disincarnated head for a town, so I didn't buy herbs (not sure if I could have if I egressed though). And then I used a few, so you're definitely running out. Still got a good number of antidotes though, since there were more bats around. We also got a cheerful bread, Cynthia has it.

Here's the save

Paige lv 9! HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+1
Paige lv 10! HP+2 ATT+1 DEF+2 AGI+1
Kiddo lv 10! HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+3 AGI+1
Hawel lv 10! HP+1 MP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1
Paige, Kiddo an Hawel died due to two badly anticipated Blaze 2...
Ruburan lv 10! HP+2 ATT+2 DEF+2 AGI+1
Sonette lv 10! HP+2 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1
Mead is exhausted...
Ruburan got stabbed...
Cynthia didn't make it...
Knuckles lv 2! HP+1 MP+1 ATT+3 DEF+3 AGI+1
Ian lv 10! HP+2 MP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1

I made the capital mistake of going onto the bridge instead of waiting in front of it. the Dark Mages wrecked my team pretty damn well. However, in the end Ian, Knuckles, Ian's healing items and Sonette saved the day. Everybody but Cynthia is level 10 or already promoted.

Sylvia and Julia joined the Force!

Since there's still a few slots in sf2, I'll take desert before taros.
Heck, I'll take to roft too, unless somone else wants it

And another chapter is closed! So's my participation in FC...

Magus is down, with few highlights to show. One witch got 2 turns very quickly, and so got to blaze3 Sonette and Mead twice before either could move and/or before heals could get to them, AKA they're both dead. It's ok though, the end of chapter resurrected them, free of charge.
Sylvia and Paige magically became powerhouses once they got their hands on the weapons that were just lying around. 14 level ups were had, most of them within the norm I think... Sonette got 6 defense before she died, and most people were getting decent level ups, except Cynthia of course. She got heal 3 and jackall else. Hawel also got freeze 2, but he also got 4 mana...

Everyone is level 3 or 4. There's a new force member, you're gonna have to egress if you want her in though, I think she's the 13th character.

Here's the save.

Consider it grabbed then.

I forgot we had a new mage, so I didn't put her in. Not too late to do so though if you want her, even a few levels behind, her spells do more damage than Ian...

Not too much experience to distribute here... everyone got to 4 but that's it, except Knuckles who naturally got to 5. Everyone stayed terrible at what they're terrible at. Cynthia learned Blast 2, but is still stuck at 11 mana. We got a new healer though, maybe you want that one in instead? It's hard to throw a rock at Knuckles when he gets 3 ATK and DEF in one level up... well if you wanna keep Cynthia I gave her some experience. Needed some patience, because the 1 HP shaman dodged her double attack, but yeah, she's halfway to 5.

Not much to mention otherwise. Eric has the Shield ring, not equipped though. No one died.

Here's the save

Sadly, team sfc games just don't pay like they used to ;)

Was thinking about just passing this battle on, but I couldn't pass up the chance to switch out two characters for ones I'd never used! exchanged kiddo for Minto, and Cynthia for Morton. On to fighting!

Mead lvled to 5! hp+2,def+2
Eric lvled to 5! hp+2,att+1,agi+1
Paige lvled to 5! hp+3,att+2,def+2,agi+1; not too shabby
Sylvia lvled to 5! Which she deserved after always taking the team's beatings. hp+2,att+1,def+1,agi+1
Ruburan lvles to 5! hp+1,mp+3,att+3,agi+1,learned Katon 2. At this point I realized he had magic.
Tentacles appear! It's fun being surprised by these games again.
Hawel lvls to 5 saving Minto! hp+2,mp+1,att+1,agi+1
Minto lvls to 4! hp+2,mp+2,att+1,agi+1
Annother tentacle then filled the gap left by the first, and killed Minto... I jsut can't get a break :(
Tentacles got 2 atacks in a row and killed Erick :damnit:
Julia lvls to 5 avenging him! hp+3,att+1,agi+1
Morton lvls to 5!hp+1,def+1,agi+1, blast becomes lvl 2!
With an unexpected crit, Ruburan steals the last tentacle kill to lvl to 6! hp+1,mp+2,att+2,def+2,agi+1
Ian lvls to 5! hp+2,mp+1,att+1,def+1,agi+1,learned bolt
Sonette picked up the Protect staff, and lvled to 5! hp+2,att+1,def+2,agi+1
Sylvia finishes off the bowknight, picking up the running ring. And lvls to 6! hp+2,att+1,def+1,agi+1

here's the save:

That's why I said "most" :)

I'll be able to do this on Monday probably. Somebody give me a filler, please!

Hawel learned Blaze 3
Other stuff happened
Odd Eye is briefly mentioned
Panic! At the Fortress
Garden gnomes set up some twaps and it's battle time.

I hate this next battle.

Oooookay. Sorry for the hold up on all this but after my save died, I lost my drive and then Christmas, etc. hit and I had no time. I've finally gotten to it though.

In my first battle, I found the Heat Axe and learned some spells (Hawel - Blaze 3, Knuckles - Heal 3 (I think) and somebody did something else). I made Eiku my bitch and went on to the next battle.
I picked up Sasuke but wanted to know if I should put him in. I'm tempted to since I love range but would only swap Cynthia out but you guys seem attached. Thoughts?

Screw it, Cynthia is out. I don't want to babysit her anymore and we have SonicMorton + Kunckles which is more than enough. I don't even care if he gets kicked out right after this battle.

Hawel now has the Running Ring (why not?!), Protect Staff, and the Black Ring.

The love-hate relation I have with Cynthia is leaning towards hate on this run. Her mana's worse than necessary. Boot her.

Not that I have a battle left in this game mind you.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Mon Jan 06 2014 3:53am

Edit made :D

I'll have this done tomorrow at the latest. I PROMISE!

Ian learned Bolt 2, Ruburan learned Raijin
Picked up the Running Pimento and Healing Rain
Everyone is level 8 or 9
Elder died. Sad times.
Chapter 3 ends
The Devil King's Revival begins

Stat boosters obtained before this battle are with Cynthia. I found a Pimento and Rain as well so those should be moved around for healing seeds (which everyone does have at the moment).

See you in a few battles!

I believe that after battle 19, we have all normal Force Members so we should give out stat boosters by then at the latest.

As promised the battle is done.

Just started the battle after the cutscene without any changes and made my way directly towards Lynx through the forest and mountains, although normally I take the long road. But it wasn't a big challenge the get through the enemies. And eventually I killed Lynx with all 12 members still alive although I was lucky 2 times.

One time I though Kiddo's going to become an icecube after he was hit by Freeze 3 from the first witch and the second was also near him, but luckily when she got her turn she decided stay idle :D

And then Silvia survived a double attack from Lynx with 3 HP :D

I'm suprised to see Kiddo in the main team, I thought he has been kicked out by Antman...
I did a replacement myself, I don't like Mead, I could even say I hate him! So I replaced him By Ridion.
I never played with that old guy and it was the opportunity to try him, don't be mad at me please! :halo:
Gave Heat Axe and Quick Ring to him, Running Ring to Morton, Valkyrie to Silvia and Counter Sword to Eric. Re-arranged healing items.

I forgot how difficult it is to not lose someone in this battle as a character is easily outnumbered if not correctly protected. The massacre of Eric at the beginning of the battle made me be more careful with my moves... Unfortunately I couldn't prevent the death of Sasuke, I didn't notice he only had 5 HP last time he attacked and a Bow Rider surprised him...
Ridion didn't disappoint me, he was useful especially in this battle where movements aren't really important.

Sylvia received the Power Ring but it's still unequipped. Sonette picked up the Kaiser Knuckles.

Lv 9: Sasuke
Lv 10: Ian, Paige, Knuckles, Eric, Morton
LV 11: Hawel, Sylvia, Ruburan (Katon is now LV3), Sonette, Ridion
LV 12: Kiddo

Yeah, yeah... finding the save wasn't easy under all that posting you did. Took some time :p

First I decked out everybody with the latest gear. Which wasn't all that easy since I didn't know if Assault Shell was better than Great Shot or Great Axe better than the Heat Axe. I really wished for a comparison window...

After doing the inventory shuffle, it was on to battle!

If those orbs are going to blow up I'm going to call bs. That'd be just a tad bit too similiar to Geshp's battle.

Sonette lvl 12! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1
Ruburan lvl 12! HP+2 MP+1 ATT+1 DEF+2
Ridion lvl 12! HP+1 ATT+1
Kiddo lvl 13! HP+2 ATT+1
Ian lvl 11! HP+2 MP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1
Sylvia lvl 12! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1
Sasuke lvl 10! HP+2 MP+2 ATT+2 DEF+2 AGI+1
Knuckles lvl 11! HP+1 MP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1
Sasuke lvl 11! HP+1 MP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1 RAIJIN became level 2!
Morton lvl 11! HP+1 MP+1 ATT+2 DEF+2 AGI+1 QUICK became level 2!
Eric lvl 11! HP+2 ATT+1 DEF+2
Kiddo got bolted to shit when I placed him on the tower, not realizing he was in range of the muppet...
Hawel got electrocuted by the muppet and a lesser demon...
Ruburan lvl 13! HP+2 MP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1 RAIJIN became level 2!
Sonette lvl 13! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1
Ian lvl 12! HP+1 MP+1 ATT+1 BOLT became level 3!
Ridion picked up the Mystery Staff!
Paige kills the Muppet and gains lvl 11! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+2

So those orbs recovered MP? Can't say I noticed it. Though I was wondering somewhere down the line if the monks hadn't gone under 10 MP yet...
Also: My second battle in this game where the main threat were casters. Huh.
Final Conflict really loves it's tiny level ups, doesn't it? Even SFII had more stat ups, especially after promo.

Good thing I redid this; didn't realize I was down two members. Revived hawel and Kiddo. I have no idea who needs what, so I left all that the same. wee!


Leveled Kiddo to 14, cause I didn't want that lesser demon using any of its magic. hp+2,att+1,def+1
Sylvia, my favorite knight, levels to 13! hp+1,att+1,def+1,agi+1
Ridion lvls to 13! hop+1,att+1,def+1
Used one of Ruburan's healing seeds to keep him topped off. Stupid dark generals.
Used Sylvia's too.
kiddo picked up the ground axe. Sounds useful!
Ian lvls to 13! hp+2,att+1,def+1,agi+1
Paige lvls to 12! hp+1,att+1,def+1,agi+1
Sonette lvls to 14, because she moved first and by golly I want to finish one battle without any deaths! :damnit: hp+2,att+1,def+1,agi+1
Sasuke lvls to 12! hp+1,mp+2,att+1,def+1
Eric lvls to 12; death to mishaela doll 1! hp+1,att+1,def+2,agi+1

Ran Morton out of mp, used his healing seed on ridion. Leveled him to 12! hp+1,mp+2,att+2,def+1
Paused to heal up. Used Eric's healing seed to boost sylvia.

But the rest is so short lived! The seccond Mishaela Doll strikes!!
Used knuckles other healing seed!
Ridion lvls to 14! hp+1,att+1,def+1
Used one of Sasuke's healing seeds! we's gonna need more seeds.
Used sylvia's medical herb to push Eric back from the brink of death. comonnnnnn...
Kiddo crits a pyro hydra and lvls to 15, but I don't care! Elric's alive, screw level distribution! hp+2,def+1
Used Ian's healing seed to get Eric back into the fight.

But then, Mishaela Doll 3 enters the fray!! Curse you Miahsaela doll!!! once again, things are looking grim!!
Used ridion's healing seed on kiddo!
Used sasuke's on sylvia!
And, when things are looking blackest, Morton uses his preciously saved healing rain! Once more into the fray!
Kiddo picks up a hyper cannon from the last bowknight! On to max and his minions!

Knuckles lvls to 12! hp+1,mp+1,att+1,def+1,agi+1,learned detox lvl2!
Sylvia lvls to 14! hp+1,def+1,agi+1
Used sonnete's medical herb to patch up knuckles after some demon breath
At last, Max pulls into range! Having saved all my bolt users, I now began dumping bolt spells on him! Ian uses bolt 3 to half his health!
Max attempts to desoul Ian, but is unsuccessful! Knuckles follows up with a swift kick to the head, which turns out to be just the thing to knock that awful mask off! The battle is a victory!!!!!!!!! Give me my cookie!

So, I missed two monsters in my haste to vanquish Max. Also I hope we weren't saving that healing rain for anything, it kindof seemed like the right time to use it :shifty: Though to be fair, I was substantially more intimidated by max then I perhaps needed to be.

Oh, and I'll do the other battle tomorrow.

Yada yada Oddeye, enemy of my enemy is my friend, ect.... Max joins the force!

So I couldn't pass up the chance to have to heroes in my force; so I dropped paige since he was starting to trail behind anyway.
Equiped the hyper cannon to Sonnette.
Equipped ground axe on Ridion.
Equipped the mystery staff to Hawell.
On to battle!

Mishaela's in love and has a kid! Odd Eye joins the force! Now I've got 13 members!

Holy frick! That evil statue shoots flames! It's so much fun to play battles you are completely surprised by.

...5 attempts later. Man those statues are just cutting me down. It feels like a ww1 battlefield. Once again the force prepares to charge the enemy lines!

Egressed right at the beginning (actually Ian just died right off) And bought crap tons of healing items. Everyone has as many healing seeds as they could now. Sadly I've run out of time to work on this for today, so I'll have to pick it up mon/tues. But with healing seeds for every member I am confident in our ability to force our way forward!

This is definitely one of the most interesting/challenging sf battles I've done though; the literal firing line of artillary combined with a boss that can throw bolt 3's arround all day makes for a very exciting challenge :thumbsup:

sorry; I just got gunned down every time I tried to run the gap. I managed to crawl my way all the way up once; but then Mishaela just mopped me up with liberal bolt 3's. Every round!

Just make sure to keep at least 6 characters alive and they should have some healing items left otherwise MXC gonna have a really hard time against Darksol because he won't be able to egress.

Sonette lvls to 15! hp+1,att+2
Eric lvls t o13 using a healing seed! hp+1,att+1,def+2
Sasuke lvls to 13! hp+1,mp+2,att+1,def+1,agi+1
Sylvia charges the mishaela doll, and lvls to 15! Hp+1,att+1,def+1
Ian lvls to 14! hp+1,def+1
Morton lvls to 13! hp+1,mp+2,att+3,def+1,agi+1, blast became lvl 3!
Knuckles lvls to 13! hp+1,att+1,def+1
Hawel lvls to 12! hp+1,mp+1,def+2,agi+1, freeze became lvl 3!
Sonette lvls to 16! hp+2,att+1,def+1,agi+1

Sasuke uses rajin 2 on the statues, lvls to 14! hp+1,mp+2,att+1,def+1
Kiddo intercepts the last reaper, lvls to 16! att+1,def+1,agi+1
Max uses his bolt 3 to drop 2 of the statues!
Ruburan lvls to 14 finishing off another statue and putting the shaman and 4rth statue at critical! hp+2,mp+1,att+2,def+2
Sonette finishes the shaman for good and all!

At last mishaela enters the fray... and kills Hawel, Ruburan, and Max in one shot.... dag.
Ridion, seeking to avenge his comrades, charges Mishaela head on! He lvls to 15 for his trouble! hp+1,att+2,def+1

Morton uses his last heal 3 on max to ensure he can stay in the fight! Knuckles takes the fight to mishaela!
Mishaela bolts again! somehow, only Ridion dies; despide having the most health..
But Sasuke strikes a devistating blow for revenge! The foe is down to only 5hp!!
And who should land the felling blow, but Kiddo. He lvls to 17! att+1,def+1! The battle is ended!

Darksol shows up, turns all big and bad. Don't remember him having that trick before. Or being a contestant for the devil king tittle.

7 healing seeds left, distributed throughout the team. You also have both mmnks; happy day! Should hopefully be a fun challenge for you, mxc! Enjoy~

Active party: Ian, Knuckles, Kiddo, Sylvia, Eric, Morton, Sasuke, Odd Eye. That's 8 total, not bad.

Not having Sonette really, really sucks (her range makes this cake) and Hawel dead stinks too.

I took Sylvia and Sasuke around to each hand to take them out, hoping not to trigger magic attack (only was hit with Bolt twice.) Healed up and set off for Darksol's big ugly head. I predict losing half the Force...

Sylvia dies.
Eric dies on a double.
Odd Eye dies on a counter.
Knuckles and Sasuke die on a Demon Breath.

Ian lands the final blow with Kiddo and Morton watching.

Game over :)


We can FINALLY GO BACK TO SAVE STATES! YAAAAAAAAY :D

Yeah, I was bummed to lose Sonette too; for once a really useful archer!

You didn't miss out on much with Hawel; he was slow as beans, which didn't lend itself to my 'kill things as quick as I could' strategy. So he fell behind by a bit :shifty:

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

I just wanted the range with his spells. He wouldn't have lasted very long anyway.


So... who are we taking from Creed's? I only have one battle after then so it doesn't matter much to me. Or should we just leave it to zexxar?

So it finally begins:

Stor the SDMN wakes up to go to school so he can learn how there is no gain without any pain. At the schoolhouse, he meets up with Trent the PRST and Rusty the KNTE(who seems to be a scaredy cat of sorts since he's reluctant to bend rules set by the Kingdom.)

Long story short, they enter battle with 5(I think it's 5) Gizmos. Stor and Trent gain a level while Rusty trails behind slightly.....BUT he has a Mithril.

Basically named everybody after team members and well-known SFC members.

No deaths, obviously.

What difficulty are we playing SF2 on?

And second question with that, do we want to roulette it? Or other question, do you want to come up with a random team, if we don't want to garantee a spot for all the late joiners? Assign a number to everyone and have the random number generator pick the other 11 (assuming this isn't a mod and we can't kick Stor).

All other versions were unmodified, so it makes sense to use this unmodified too.

Besides, you can't kick me.

After you've named the main character, hilight 'end', then press A and 'Start' together. Another character should appear. You can now name each member of the force!

KK, moving on then.

Some jerk Noma decides to watch us clear the way to his master for him (as opposed to actually helping), but we still manage just fine. Everyone is level 4, nothing extraordinary on the stats. Trent only got 1 MP, unfortunately. Stor really didn't want to get to level 4, but I managed to get him there anyways. With patience.

I didn't buy any items, we won't need them. 2 herbs and a seed, with 2 more herbs at least coming from bats. This isn't super, we'll be fine, as long as you don't use Stor to tank. His defense is atrocious. The giant bats could 2HKO him in 15% before he got to 4 - which btw means galam soldiers are probably gonna be able to do just that with him at 4, so watch out a little.

Here's the save.

We head into the old man's house, but he's been attacked by the Galam Soldiers. Seeing his master's dead body, Noma finally decides to join us to get his bloody revenge. Stor meanwhile plunders the geezer's closet. Tactful.

Following the guards outside we engage in battle.

Stor reaches level 5!
Noma reaches level 5 and Blaze level 2!
Bolt became level 5!
Trent is now level 5!
Rusty levels up to 6!

Next up: Stor getting hit on the head. The part we all waited for.

Drak the Thief joins (and doesn't explode).
Stor pulls a Drak and steals some jewels herbs.
Upgraded gear and bought herbs. Remember to buy a bunch before next battle because North Cliff doesn't have a chance.

Trent learned Heal 2
Everyone is level 7 or 8
The only person that will need healing items is Kiwi :)

Everything is completed on my end. I made sure that our mascot, Moogie, joined the force. :thumbsup: Also, I made sure to pick up the running pimento (or whatever it was) from the deck of ship. I didn't bother going to the shrine for the Power Water, as the inventory is pretty full. There was also an unused Power Water among the items. Be sure to raid the shrine on your way back through. The battle went smoothly, as there were no deaths. Everyone on the team is "kicking butt"! I tried to get everyone up to level 8, but I believe Stor and one other are level 9.


Thanks for being patient with me, everyone.

Stor got yelled at for being violent, so he looted the place in retaliation. Some Swalchy ranger joined our party, then we moved on.

No losses, but honestly I think I did a crap job of this one, because Frosty managed to steal quite a few kills. He got 4 instead of the 1 I usually give him. That being said, I still managed to get everyone caught up in levels, but that's just about it - everyone's 11, except a few exceptions who are 12. Including Frosty :angry:

Noma is in possession of the power ring. Probably not the best character to be using it.

Here's the save.

Battle done but rushed so Frosty got a level :/

Moogie and Bolt are both level 11, everybody else is level 12(except Frosty who is level 13).

After we raided the cave, they headed straight for Polca. There, they found a strange turtle dude that seemed to be in a pickle. After helping him, he turned into a fairy! Sadly, Stor forget his magic bottles at home after he drank too much soapwater. She then left off, talking about somebody, but Stor didn't pay attention and pilvering some dudes home for a Protect Milk before going to the weapons store.

---------------------------------------------------
Where a Secret Book and a Vigor Ball were sold. Huh. DId anybody ever load any modified rom? Cause I'm playing on what should be my vanilla SF2 rom.
((If it should turn out that I am indeed the culprit, I'll happily get myself a new vanilla rom and redo the battle if you want me to)).
---------------------------------------------------

While shopping, I reminded Stor that we might meet somebody soon that might need another Long Sword for some reason and he gave it to Trent for savekeeping.
Being a bit selfish, I decided that I'd drink the force's Power Wine. Let's be honest here though - if I didn't do it now, we would have kept that stuff until the end of our journey! What a waste! If it's any consolation to you, it was a VERY good red wine. (Drak's attack rose by 4!)
On the way to towards the road to Bedoe we met some hairy bloke who looked like he might be a pretty cool fellow - Then suddenly the volcano erupted and some blind guy came stumbling from the mountains! Against my advice, Stor decided that he was the mayor's problem now and we headed towards the Birdmen kingdom. However, on our way we had to deal with the leftovers of an army attacking them! Not only where they devils, but they also called us stupid! And even worse: Polcan! They had to die.

Rusty chucked a spear at a Hobgoblin and reached level 13! HP+2 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1
Stor slew a Witch and became level 13! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1
Bolt chopped some Hobgoblin and was raised to level 13! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+2 AGI+1
Frosty was being a dick again and gained level 14! HP+1 ATT+2 DEF+1 AGI+1
Frosty one-shot a Wich and got 1 EXP for it. Thanks Frosty! <-<
Trent "lay his hands" on Stor and was enlightened to level 13! HP+1 MP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1
Bolt: attacks Monk.
Bolt: deals 13 damage to Monk.
Monk: Dies!
The party gains 32 experience points.
Bolt: Level up!
Results of level up: HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1
Rusty blocked the enemy archer's arrow! Let's hope the awesomeness he was this battle won't be overshadowed by future lameness! (Spoiler: Might very well happen)
I critically shanked an Evil Cloud (wait what)? The surreal experience elevated me to level 13! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1!
Stor snatched the kill on the Death Archer right out of Frosty's evil, evil Hands! Good Job! Your reward is level 14! HP+1 ATT+1 DEF+1 AGI+1!
Frosty stole waaaay too many good opportunities from poor Moogie, who is still stuck at level 11.

I hope you had as much fun reading this as I had writing it!

First of all I extra got a new vanilla version of the rom because somehow I only had mod version of it :lol:

Anyway another battle is done.
After that Archer died due to shock of seeing Stors jewels the force entered Bedoe where they stole a Quick Ring before doing anything else, which was handed to Swalchy. Afterwards the weapon shop was visited to get some shiny new weapons.

Upon entering the throne room Frosty was very happy to meet his old buddy ehow. After chatting a bit the King proposed to meet frosty old man (I always thought that Peter is somehow little Volcanon). But the Old man was not very pleased when he realized that Frosty new friend is one of those troublesome humans, after a small dispute Frosty thought "f*ck it old man I'm leaving with my new friend otherwise there's no one to do all the talking" and left.

Upon leaving Bedoe Stor thought hey those bushes are so damn preety why not spend some time looking at them when he suddenly heard a scream "ALPHAAAAAAAAAAA" when he looked upwards a smallchicken fell directly in his face. After this encounter which made Stor wetting his pants he immediatly left Bedoe and never looked back again.

When they entered Polca again the witnessed how ehows companions got pawned by some minotaurs and a dwarf. When suddenly Balbzak appeard but instead of helping poor ehow immediatley he thought "I'd rather chat with Stor and co. first. After declaring to join them ehow also thought "Hey that's a nice idea" maybe those guys finally decided to help me if I join them too. But just when had said he also wanted to join he also got pawned by a minotaur and decided to play dead and let the others handle the enemies. After the minotaurs and the dwarf suddenly dissappeared the town was filled with ugly zombies and finally the battle started.

The battle was no big deal I rushed throug without any problems at all. Everyone except Noma (13) and Moogie (12) are level 14 or 15.

So the battle is done! I'll keep it short this time, almost everyone is level 15 or 16 but Moogie is a bit behind with only level 13 so if we want to use her someone should try to get her some levels.

We entered the shrine. First, the old man was reluctant to come with us, but then Stor took his Steel Sword and he just followed us on his own, babling on about how the youth has no respect for the elderly any more etc.

When we went west he suddenly demanded that we'd stop by the sealed cave enterance near Ribble. He was indeed able to open it! However, it was a trap - the ruined shrine inside was filled with monsters! He just wanted to get back at us for stealing his sword!

Rusty level 16!
Trent level 15!
Ehow level 16!
Frosty level 17!
Drak level 17!
Bolt level 17!
Moogie level 14!
Swalchy level 17!
Balbzak level 16!
A CRACK APPEARED IN THE POWER RING!
Noma level 16!

I tried my best to give Moogie as much experience as possible, but there just wasn't more in it than 1 1/2 levels. Otherwise the battle went nicely.

We're stuck with Luke because he is named Ehow in this run and somewhere in this thread MXC decided that we definitely use the characters that are names after the Team Timeline members which would be:

MXC
Stordarth
zexxar
ehow22
Drakonis
Demonic Weasel
Simpelicity
Spear God
Antman 537
Bulzome

But many of us haven't appeared as characters yet. :(

Then we may should decided if we want to do that before Elric (or what ever his name will be ) joins. Otherwise we may kick a Team Timeline member by accident ;)

Hello everyone. Sorry for the delay. My gf left me for her ex, but enough about that. Everything is finished on my end. I made sure to grab all the chests in the shrine. I also got the Achilles Sword. I gave the Power Ring to ehow (he REALLY needed it). I completely forgot that you couldn't purge or switch party members until Rhode joins (Astral just kept saying "take it easy"). The battle didn't go as well as planned. Ehow and Moogie both need to be revived. Believe it or not, Stor and Peter (I can't remember his new name) were actually the saviors of this battle. I used Moogie as a healer for this battle, as there were talks of Moogie being removed from the party. A lot of people gained levels in this battle. I believe the party is an average of level 18.

Also, I apologize again for not having my battle sooner, but this has been the week from hell.

Met Dr. Simpel, who told Stor he smelled realy old. Then decided to let him tag allong.
Finally found the priest and revived everyone. Bought some healing seeds. Found some mithril.
Baught bolt the power axe, Swatchy the steel arrow, Trent and Noma the power sticks, and the thieves' dagger for Drak. Sold their respective old gear. Saved in game, for good measure.
To battle!

Moved the force forward carefaully, staggering members to avoid providing that master mage a good target
Ehow lvled to 18! some stuff happened; didn't remember it autoscrolling through those stats....
Frosty lvled to 19 by saving Drak's bacon; I swear I didn't give him more kills!
Swalchy lvls to 19; I did give her a kill!
Ehow onshotts a black monk!
Stor lvls to 19!
Frosty oneshots a gargoyle! bugger!
Trent lvls to 17 not killing the mage; overestimated blast 1...
Bolt lvls to 18!
At last balbazak makes it to the fight, and lvls to 17 on the dark master mage!
Rusty valiantly attacks the soulsower for 1 dmg! ....daw crap; that spear jsut does nothing.
Frosty lvled to 20 doing not much of anything.
Ehow was brought down with consecutive attacks from a master mage and gargoyle. Burnt a blaze two on just him alone, blast it all. He was actually being useful too...
Noma lvls to 18 avenging him!
Used frosty as bait so my lower lvl characters could get some exp.
Trent lvls to 18 in deadly battle with the soulsower!
Drak lvled to 19!
Balbazak pollished off the last soulsower, and lvls to 18! that's everyone who mattters!

Really bummed to have lost Ehow; he seems to be doing pretty well this go-around, especially with that power ring. :thumbsup:

Faisal, I never gave you two battles; only 'To Roft'. If you're available when it comes up, just go ahead and do it. If not, I'll do it myself. I check this site primarily while at work, so you should have time to snatch it up.

Went back to church to revive Ehow and promote Frosty, who now looks fabulous. After that I repaired the power ring, decked everyone out in healing drops and it was onwards to the shrine.

Battle itself was a cakewalk until Taros himself, who did nothing but criticals to Stor. Thankfully I knew exactly what was to come and nobody died.
Stor, Ehow and me are ready for promotion.

Sorry for the delay.

I picked up Salibu and then promoted everyone who was ready and got new weapons for everyone except our casters because I didn't knew what Trent will become upon promotion.
Te I put some things in the caravan to make some space in the inventories and plundered everything of value in the elven village.
The battle was a bit tedious because I wanted everyone (except Moogie) to be ready for promotion after this battle, whcih I was able to achieve but this had me skip many turns especially when Rusty was left at level 18 when everyone already were level 20. Gave him the Power Ring to do some more damage.

So just promote everyone before going to the next battle.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

PostPosted: Sun Feb 09 2014 5:26pm

Alright, I did the promos. Both centaurs are promoted (so no pegasus for us), Noma is a Sorc, Trent is a MMNK, and Bolt is still a dwarf. While I was promoting, I had this sudden question... what happens if there's more than 1 member of the Creed menagerie that's a team timeliner? Are we really going to grind up the second one or do we make an exception on our rule? If we grind it up, keep in mind the magic users are easier to lvl up from scratch.

Anyhow, the battle is done. Everyone is lvl 2 or close to it, except Trent. A harpy got a second turn a little too early for my liking and took her down. Otherwise everything is peachy. Oh and Frosty is poisoned, when you go back to raise Trent don't forget to fix that. Oh and I don't remember seeing a spare arrow so you might have to walk all the way back for it, assuming we'll want Daria more than Moogie.

Here's the save


EDIT since we'll be keeping Trent, I suggest we give her the running pimento. I like my healers with a long reach.

Today was not a good day to be a rat. Stor countered them twice in a row, Ehow dodged 'em twice in a row, and Drak countered and doubled once each. In a word, team timeliners kicking butt.
Bolt even threw a counter Willard's way, for good measure.

No deaths. Everyone's level 4, except Noma who's 5. He also learned Apollo. And Drak has Katon.

Here's the save.

There were 2 characters from our team Bulzome the KNTE and Spear (God) the PRST. Then there was also Kayin the sparkling vampire WARR and a MAGE whose name I forgot. I took Bulzome because Spear is easier to level later on.

I picked up:
Running Ring
Mithril (devil's tail)
Cannon
Dynamite
Chaos W the ARCH

Kicked out Rusty for Bulzome.

The battle was no problem because I played very slow since I was watching football while playing so there was nothing worth to be mentioned.

Hmmm, didn't do quite as well in this one. Frosty got picked on by 3 things and died of it, and at the end the Dark soldier got to play twice before Trent or Swalchy, who died of it.

Everyone is 6 or 7 except Frosty, who died 1 kill away from 6. Noma has Neptune, Drak can cast katon twice now. I kicked 1 cannon to make room for the other one. That's about all I've got to say on this.

Here's the save.

Pre-battle:

Organized this mess of an inventory. Seriously, you guys are messy!
Found all the stuff in Ketto
Edited in items that should have been in there
Redistributed rings since... I didn't like to configuration

Higins = Century so he doesn't have to join in after this battle.

Levels were had (I think everyone is level 7 except Salibu (8). There might be one at 6 still.)
Someone has the Black Ring
Everyone survived and I used 2 healing drops I think. Hoping we can afford all there Lances in Tristan when we get there... sometimes too many deaths can screw it up but hey, I'm done so what do I care?!

Hmmm, I should probably try a little harder than this, 'cause I failed again. I lost Ehow to a lizard double attack and Drak to a triple-team. It isn't a coincidence they're both very mobile, they both got to a place I probably shouldn't have sent them in the first place. Hastiness is killing me :(

Anyhow, everyone is level 8, except myself, who is 9. I got the pegasus wings (and other loots of course) but I didn't sell it. If you run out of money at Tristan don't forget to bank that.

Here's the save.

And we're done with that. Everything went pretty well; everybody is at 9 or 10 right now. Oh, and Noma got his ass handed to him rather humiliatingly. Otherwise we're making progress.

Astral trys to pick up girls; turns out to be Cameela! Witty banter ensues, but Cameela flees before Sir Astral can get her number. Dejected, he continues with the force to Tristan!

Bought trent some brass knuckles.Bought bolt a great axe.Bought chrome lances for bulzone and saibu. Sold items. Bought a ton of healing drops for people. Raised Noma.

Got lost in a cave. Found some protect milk! Found 2 healing seeds. At last we made it to the shrine. But there are devils in this shrine! To battle, shining force!

Trent ripped a wyvern apart with unexpected ease. yowzers, I love mastermonks.
Bulzone lvls to 10!
Hit the wrong button, resulting in a poorly positioned katon2 from Drak. All these different games have gotten me all confused over the conrtols.
Swatchy lvls to 10!
Saibu attack the wizard but misses! the dark knight and orc immediately move to cut him off from the rest of the party!
Drak lvled to 10 charging to the rescue!
Frosty lvled to 10!
Simpel crits the wyvern and lvls to 11!
An enemy mastermonk silences trent and drak!
The cursed dark knight got a heavy attack off on saibu! Despite having just been healed to full, he dies anyway!
Trent lvls to 11 beating up the mastermonk what silenced her!
Then the dark knight kills Bolt too! gah he hits like a tank!
Balbazak lvls to 10!
Trent is poisoned by a wyvern!
Swatchy kills the dark knight and lvls to 11, because at this point I just want him dead!

...and that ends the battle; whoops. Still had a wyvern, worm, mmnk, and orc to kill, but I was tired of that Dark knight killing everyone he hit :damnit:

And lo, Stor did once again beat the green-faced buffoon into so much snot-like paste. But his harsh words were not without consequence, for the enraged, thin-skinned idiot was able to take his anger out on the Vandal known as Bulzome - which technically means that Zalbard... saved the world... before being smoten...?

Alas, such a bitter-sweet defeat!

I decided I didn't want to kill everything so I doubled the devil soldier and ended it before the bishop died!

... anyhow! I broke the streak and got no losses! The Force is all either 12 or close to it, except Trent who healed all the way to... um, 13 or 14, I don't remember. Also, some items were cracked from previous battles and no one mentioned it! Guys! Noma is currently in possession of 2 cracked rings.

I'd also like to mention that Trent will soon have a healing buddy. Turns out Demonic weasel is the aura master :)

Sorry for taking a couple of days. I swear, there were excuses, but they're all insignificant in the face of a Team game.

Anyway, shuffled the force around a bit so that Zex and the Mighty Demonic could both get in on the action. Frosty got killed by one heavy attack on the part of a Mud Man at the end of the battle which has me rather irate as otherwise this would have been the first perfect run for me for a while. I also managed to get Aura for the Mighty Demonic and promptly mined that for experience.

I'd recommend nabbing some more healing drops, I went through most of those.

Bolt out for our new member Antman the Warrior
Picked up Aesh, Kayin and Spear from Creed's house
Put in Spear VICR for Frosty
Gave Simp the Quick Ring from Bolt

The battle went pretty normal lured some enemies and killed them lured some more ... I guess you all know how it goes on.
Cameela though came a bit to earlier and so I had to leave 2 enemies to make sure I get another perfect run.Spear didn't get as many levels as I wanted because I didn't wanted to abuse Boost.

First off, I just want to say that Wargasm is an excellent name for an ancient robot.

Crashed the nazca ship. Found a brave apple. Watched kaihaku bathe for a while. Kaihaku joins the force! Too bad she'll never get to see any action.

Attempted the battle once and it was disasterous. Our healers took all day to get to the front lines, which were thouroughly decimated by the time they got there. Restarted. Used the running pimento on Demonic. Why Does Drak have the chirrup sandals equiped? I don't want him taking all the focus. Gave to Bulzone in stead. Gave the Wish staff to Demonic for even more boost fun. Gave the mage staff to noma, but didn't equip it. This raises a question; can members who can't use staffs still use the staff's abilities?

My seccond attempt went splendidly until a very well placed muddle sent half my force on a killing spree through the other half. And mud men spawned immediately after to mop us up in the dissarray. The battle ended in a mad dash to take out the enemy command unit, but alas the mud men were too numerous and surrounded and beat down the weakened Stor before the killing blow could be struck. Cursed muddle....

So, the plan for attempt 3 was to move a lot more slowly and try and hold back until the mist demons could be lured out, then close the trap around them and kill them before their devastating magicks could be employed.

The first portion went well; Spear lvls to 3!
The first dragonnewt was lured out easily enough.
Trent lvls to 16!
Demonic lvls to 16 using the boost staff!
Zexxar finishes it off.

Next is the tricky part: luring the worms and griffons out against my tanks. I used swalchy, Bulzone and Simpel to snipe an outlying purple worm. At the same time positioning Bulzone in the fore with my swift moving units poised to sweep down on whatever might take the bait.
Which turned out to be a griffon. Noma acted next and dealt it a devastating blow with Dao 2; and lvled to 16!
Zexxar polished it off and lvled to 15!

Next, the first accursed mist demon rushed up and muddled Trent!
The tine has come for the trap to spring shut! Drak uses his rajin on the mist demon, dragonnewt and purple worm!
Simpel lvls to 16!
stor fells the dragonnewt and picks up its heat axe! He lvls to 15!

Simpel takes a shot at a distant dragonnewt, then the last mist demon and griffin suddenly charge him! He survives miraculously; but this puts the two precisely where I want them!
Drak now unleashes his second rajin!
Noma acts swiftly to decimate the mist demon and lvls to 17!
At last, Antman, Everyone's favorite character, enters the fray! He lvls to 15!
Swalchy finishes the griffon and lvls to 16!
Drak finishes the last dragonnewt and lvls to 17!
Ehow lvls to 17 with a furious double attack on the last purple worm!
Stor finishes it off and lvls to 16 as well!
Meanwhile, trent finally recovers her senses, after nearly killing spear 3 times in a row.

Demonic heals Ehow, and not a moment too soon! The bow archer appears to drop him down to 3 hp!
Sadly, before the force can react, the shaman uses blast to finish him...
Oddly enough, absolutely no one can reach the bow rider even slightly. He get another turn and one shots swalchy... wth?
Bulzone at last reaches the bow rider and lvls to 17!
The chaos wizard kills zexxar with an ordinary attack; what did they feed that guy?
Fortunately, this leaves the wizard and rider lined up perfectly for noma's last dao 2!!
Simpel deals the finishing blow to the bow rider, because I didn't want to risk any more members! Man I hate bow riders.

While I have no problems going bare-foot, I wasn't the one who appointed the sandals to myself. I do have to say that they where quite comfy and warm, so I didn't see any reason to unequip them. Especially since I am Ninja enough to ignore the squeeky sound they make with every step.

And that's it for MXC. It was a long hard fight, but Stor laid him out on his ass without too many problems. But MXC had mighty troops! First Spear was oneshotted by a pesky Bow Rider, then MXC stole even Zex's soul. And then he managed to kill Ehow by getting a counter attack and then a turn immediately after. Weird.

Anty's Heat Axe needs to be repaired, but all else is well.

PostPosted: Fri Mar 14 2014 5:40am

We were missing 4 mithril! What happened? :shock:
I found 3 of them, which means 1 of them was forgotten in the beginning. It might be me, I don't remember if I picked the one next to the shrine or not. Hopefully it is though, otherwise that last mithril is lost to us. The other forgotten ones were the one at Sheela's monastery, the one on the docks of Hassan and the one on the way to Pangoat bridge.

Anyhow, you guys are lucky I like listening to music. After 2 and a half hours of intense music listening, our Force found itself equipped with 13 new shiny weapons! There's a full 30 minutes of me running around getting mithril included in that. Running into 9 random battles didn't help :(
Getting the weapons wasn't too annoying... buster shots nearly drove me insane but I got the Gisarme on the second try (thanks karma!) Here's the loadout :

Bowie : Battle sword that got dropped recently. No new shiny toys for him.
Trent : Iron knuckles. No mithril weapons for her. See below for why :)
Noma : Mystery staff.
Drak : Gisarme :biggrin:
Swalchy : Grand cannon
Ehow : Counter sword
Simpel : Grand cannon
Bulzome : Mist javelin
Spear : Mystery staff
Demonic : Mystery staff, Wish staff (the one he already had).
Zexxar : Mist javelin, Halberd. Figured he might be interested in some bolt action.
Antman : Heat axe (from the dragonewt), Ground axe, 2 rune axes. One of the rune axes is for MXC. Ground axe is to give Antman extra movement, but really he should always be using the rune axe to hit things (remember, you can equip the ground axe, move 6 squares instead of 5, then switch back to the rune axe to actually hit something). I figure we could give MXC the heat axe so he doesn't feel left out with only 1 axe, but that ain't up to me.

Since Kcid was left out, I figured the super reserves weren't locked in the force. And since we have 2 healers locked in, I figured Trent was the obvious choice to get kicked out for MXC. And I preferred both Swalchy and Noma over Chaz. Thus the loadout we see here.
If it was indeed my mithril that got forgotten early, we still have one more mithril weapon to get. I'd suggest either a ground axe for MXC, a halberd for Bulzome, or a aura 2 staff for a vicar (goddess staff I think?). That's in the order I'd pick them, but once again, that decision won't be up to me.
I got the chest from the dwarf town and Galam, but I didn't bother with the evil weapons. Spear will be equipped with the white ring, at least until she finally catches up to the rest of the force. Not sure if she has Boost yet, but if she does, that + mana regen means anyone patient enough can catch her right up in one battle (and even go to 100 if he's that patient... lol)
Now then, I'm all set to do my battle, but that'll wait a bit. It'll probably happen tomorrow. For now, bedtime.

I didn't mind. As I was saying, I just spent an evening listening to music, not grinding. The grinding was an excuse :)

EDIT
If you're good with editing, are you good with getting more weapons than we should be able to? We have a force of 12 weapon users, so we're a little short on mithril. Can't get halberds and ground axes and goddess staves as secondaries for everyone who can use them.

It IS, isn't it? I decided Trent was our MMNK in the first place, then kicked him. I'm not the one who kept Sheela out though (whatever the name she was given).
I figured you wouldn't agree. Well, I'll still edit in a ground axe. I'll agree with you on ground axes, but having spare aura 2s can be useful, and bolt can also occasionnally be useful. Maybe even blaze 3, but I usually don't get that far down the line of priorities - only have 15 mithrils after all.

I am eating, recording a video, exercising, then playing this. In that order.
Here, some music to make you wait.

EDIT

The battle didn't go too badly. I lost Drak stupidly - forgot to kill a gunner before he got a chance to finish him off - otherwise I also lost Gyan to a freeze4/gunner combo, and Spear, whom Geshp was determined to kill in melee. Took him a while though, Spear isn't as easy to kill as she used to be. I grinded her up to 10, but didn't feel like going further - someone else can grind her the rest of the way up. She has boost 2 now, no aura yet though.

Couple of notes for the next person : I didn't edit in the second ground axe like I said I would. I don't have Lemon, so I didn't need it. Go ahead and get it yourself, unless you prefer something else. Second, don't forget to use all the stat up consumables after you recruit Lemon.

Here's the save.

Looks like this is the last bit for most people. Stor has been done, but this is Drak's last battle (it was my birthday present to him ;) ). In fact, everyone with a battle left in SF2 (except zexxar) will be done with this team game when they complete their battle. I hope everyone has enjoyed it.

Went to the town, left MXC lying in the mud for a bit to talk to OE, revived myself and the others, got OE to join us and then picked up MXC. Then I had to decide wheither to kick out Noma or Swalchy. Which wasn't easy. But I eventually settled on keeping Swalchy so we didn't have to pull him out of our ancient vehicular plotdevice to make fun of his mom. And Noma still needs to get work done on SF: Allstars, so back into the caravan with you!
Before heading into battle I also picked up the Evil Lance from the creepy demon head east of where grans used to be. I'm a little sad that I won't see the Force Sword in action for my final Team Timeline battle, but things could be worse. At least I can use the Gisarme :D
Oh, and MXC has the "Can't equip shit"-bug. But I was too lazy to edit the save.

Trent's Heal raised to level 4!
Demonic Weasel's Detox raised to level 4!
Stor's Bolt raised to level 3!
The Dark Sword is clouded! Go repair it!
The battle was quite easy and I slew the Hydra to get myself a belated birthday gift: A level up.

That concludes my contribution to the Team SF Timeline! Hope you guys enjoyed the ride as much as I did.
I would write a Star Treck narration outro but brain no working cheesecake at the moment. Also not sure if the joke was even funny after the first time.

Hehe, MXC actually got a kill in for me by using the dark sword to desoul. Of course that isn't exactly optimal, but at least he wasn't useless. don't forget to repair the sword.

Wandered aimlessly trying to remember what to do next. Finally pulled up moogie's sf2 guide. Found the evil axe! Gave it to myself but didn't equip it; you guys can use it if you like. Equipped Stor with the Force Sword! Used the quick chicken at Spear. Also noticed we have trent back in the party; radical.

Finally went and opened the devil's head! Oh man, I'd forgotten about this maze. Good thing I already had the guide open.

And now for the big shocker! Our old friend, Oddler, turns out to be Odd Eye; evil devil commander! I'm certain none of you saw that coming. Team sf timeline, to battle!

Da heck have we been doing with spear? She's only lvl 11? Least she's learned boost 2. Wee!
Ehow lvled to 21 slaying the first cyclops!
Trent lvled to 21 healing stor from the cyclops.
Interesting, MXC still doesn't seem to be equipped. But he still kills a cyclops for half its hp and lvls to 20!
Spear lvls to 12!
The initial forces defeated, Drak and Bulzone spring into action; using Drak's rajin II to defeat the chaos wizard before he can wreck havoc!
The chaos warrior falls next to Trent's blast 4, with Zexxar finishing it off. Zexxar lvls to 21!
Drak stole a lvl up when he cut a dark bishop in half. He's lvl 24 now.
Next, the first hydra approaches, and deals bulzone a nasty blow!
Ehow strikes the beast, but it has little effect!
Drak uses his healing drop on Bulzone.
The wish staff is distorted. Might want to fix that if we can.
The hydra, meanwhile, nearly kills ehow
Antman finally gets a turn and finishes the hydra, lvling to 20!
Bulzone uses his healing drop.
Swalchy finishes off the first dark gunner, and lvls to 22!
Ehow crushes the last chaos wizard!
Stor lvls to 23 on a chaos warrior!

At this point, Odd Eye himself wades into the fray; firing his eye beam at Zexxar!
Demonic lvls to 24 healing Stor!
Meanwhile, Odd Eye singles out Ehow. He barely survives.
Swalchy and simpel take potshots at him. Simpel lvls to 22!

Now, the force has a decision to make: we can risk death to finish all the enemies, or finish oddeye now.
Sadly, before ehow or any of our healers get a turn, Oddeye gets another and finishes him. Such crap... :damnit: Well that solves that dilemma at least. We will destroy all the enemies!
Chaos warrior gets two attacks and one shots MXC...
Antman kills the demon master, lvling to 21!
Oddeyre wounds trent and the hydra finishes her...
Bulzone lvls to 23 felling the evil bishop!
Oddeye, clearly perceiving their value, moves with impressive haste to oneshot spear, our next healer...
The Hydra finishes off the Demonic, the last healer
Antman kills the Hydra! Only the chaos warrior, one dragon, and one demon before we can finish oddeye!
Oddeye kills swalchy...
Zexxar lvls to 22 attacking the white dragon!
Antman lvls to 22 killing the chaos warrior!

Now it is time to flee up to the flying enemies, to finish them!
Simpel uses his healing drop to survive a second hit from oddeye!
But in the end, it only slows him down... oddeye kills him anyway
At last the demon enters the fray, unleashing a horrible bolt spell! The dragon follows up with a flame breath on stor! Stor has only 4hp left!!
Fortunately, he moves in time to use his healing drop.
Drak slays the demon! Zexar moves in for the final strike on oddeye!
He survives by 3 hp, and proceeds to nearly kill Bulzone!!
Just when all looked blackest, Antman, the true hero of the force, and everyone's favorite character, stepped up to the traitor! His mighty ground axe swung true, and the foe was felled! The day is won!

So many deaths in one battle; I probably could have ended it after ehow died and had no other deaths; but I figured as long as I wasn't getting a cookie I might as well kill all the enemies for once.

So the battle is done revived everyone, but didn't repair broken things and also didn't stocked up on items or got anything from the caracvan because I was to lazy to travel back :lol:

Spear learned Aura
Demonic learned Aura 3

And so once I again I did my job as Team Game Saviour and beat Galam to a pulp. Before the battle I did nothing and immediately went to pay Galam a visit.

There's not much to say about the battle except that I was lucky that Muddle 2 had no much effect when it was cast on more than half of the force luckily. I walked the right path and just waited for the enemies to approach me until Galam decided to attack a tad to early so there were still some enemies left when he was killed by me :D

The closest to death was May with 6 HP after getting hit by Freeze 4 but beside that no one was close to death thanks to our 3 healers and boost ;)

Right, well consider the save ready then.

Me not knowing what the crap probably had me grinding more than necessary in this case. The crab is dead, I'm lvl 10, decked out with a bronze shield, chainmail, and the helm it dropped. Even without it it could only do 2-3 damage... I overkilled it on the defense department.

I'll hold on to the save though, we're not there yet ;)

Clearly Jesus did not care enough about the game.
This explains so much...

Anyhow, now that I'm done with university, I took care of that one too! Not too much to report, other than I lost Trent to a double attack from a pyrohydra. I know, shameful to let a pyrohydra attack, I know... :blush:
Otherwise, the Force was quite competent. The gisarme actually gave me a useful insta-kill for once (AND a second not-so-useful one... 2 in 1 battle, I was feeling special there). MXC tanked Zeon quite well, took 2 attacks before any healer took a turn and even countered the bastard. I ended up taking the kill, and no, I didn't fix anything, I didn't feel like risking not attacking on every turn.
Spell-wise, I think we learned detox 4? and a level with the Attack spell? Note that demonic is 2 levels away from aura4. I wasn't paying attention to levels and whatnot, since the game is about over.

Here's the save.

Hee is the save. I didn't go to the tavern or anything in case you guys wanted to keep Gila around. Everyone is right around level 13 and I have about 3k for items.

I've done a game where I kept Gila but I can't remember how I did it. I must have not used MP for a long time until we get the MP restoring rings unless there is another way. I remember spending plenty of gold on herbs for healing. Probably isn't worth it in a team game but Gila sure is fun.

Re: Team Shining: Original Timeline

I think the only way to restore MP without the Tavern or the Rings is to let Pyra and Milo die and then resurrect them.

Gila is an NPC that tags along and will join the fray every so often. He will leave the party if you stay in the tavern though.

Having him the whole game is just kind of a fun thing and isn't necessary by any means (really, the game wasn't designed to have him in it at the end). So feel free to visit the tavern.

The deed is done, and so am I for this team game!

The egg lizard is dead, the orb of truth is had, and you're back int town. I went to some of the moss infected areas to get some of the loot, then bought helms (leather hoods) for the mages, and a few replacement healing items, but that's about all I did. Not sure where that places you money-wise. Level-wise you're around lvl15. Milo learned Burst, Pyra learned Freeze2, Bolt and Slow2.

Here's the save.

On a side note, my reserve grabbing brought me to 24 battles. In case you were wondering. :)

Ahh, I see what you mean. It'll take me a bit longer than a normal battle; so I'll have to do it after work, but I should be able to manage it.

Edit:
Located and downloaded a copy of the rom. Loaded the savestate, wandered aimlessly. Looked up a guide. figured out what I was supposed to do!
Went and fought the grimwall. He was a nasty blighter. It would have been good to know my party wasn't at full health, lol. So different.
Simp levled to 16!

Milo lvls to 15! learns detox2! Now if only I could get Pira to lvl.... Gahh, mana is in short supply in this game. Finally reached the cave of truth with no mana, and all my party members hurting. Hope this goes well....
...nope a wild sea stallion appears! It oneshots both my casters! Outmaneuvered, Simp attempts to flee and leave his party! But it's of no use! the stallion blocks his escape and drops him to 6 hp! He makes a desperate gambit to slay the beast, but it finishes him before he can land the blow. :(

And thus ends my first attempt at the cave of truth. I can try again tomorrow, assuming zexxar isn't back and doing it then. Also, does the no egressing rule carry through to SitD? I assumed so.

Edit2:
Stayed at the tavern! Yay, mana!
Defeated the grimwall again. Simp lvls to 16! Milo lvls to 15 on the way to the cave! Learns Detox2! Made it to the cave, got massacred by the sea stallion again :damnit:
Incidentally, I hate grimfowls. It feels like I can't walk 5 feet without stepping on a chicken. :damnit: And they keep paralyzing Milo! Is there any way to cure paralysis without leaving, thereby necessitating a restart?

I made it through the trial pretty easily. I hope I didn't miss anything down there (I did get what'shisface though). Flame Sword acquired. You may need to buy some more gear and get some more levels.

Oh, and I did find a mithril. It's up to you to decide what to make :)

I finally found the problem ... after getting through ALL trials again.
First I went through the Trials of Wisdom it was fine ... then I thought maybe I've been an idiot and didn't activate the altar so I went through Trial of Truth again , but it was fine too. So I went through the Trial of Strength, the altar was missing too... BUT THEN in the Trial of Courage the altar was NOT activated, I activated it and Level 2 is finally available :D

But it was such a hassle to run through all those Trials again and now I need to grind a lot before beeing able to get through level 2 so it will take a bit of time before I'm finished with level 2 maybe 2 days.

Anyway finally I put that Medaillon into the gold fountain where I also saved so ake sure to het to the town and rest. I used the mithrils for a armor for Milo and a shield for Pyra beccause I wanted the biggest armor boosts possible. Also got our Hero a Magical shield to boost his def he should be fine now until we get the Arms of Light items .. I also got the Hex Whip for Pyra so if you don't like it visit the priest I extra kept the old whip.

Daddy is dead :( But I forgot to take the medaillon with me so have to got through level 4 again tomorrow after getting all treasures. MXC did you get everything from level 3 except for the Light Shield in the cell ? then I wouldn't need to go through the whole level again? I will also only get usefull items so the Forbidden Box and the Demon Staff won't be acquired we won't use the manyway I guess.

And so it ends ... my participation in the Team Timeline. :(
Actually I'm really kind of sad that it's over it was such a fun project to do although sometimes the waiting was annoying but there's (almost) no teamgame without long waiting periods.

Anyway I got everything that is somehow useful just sort through it and sell what every you don't need or want. You still have one Mithril Ore left to do what ever you want. They are also strong enough to survive without any problems so you won't need to power level much. I also didn't went to rest becasue I don't know if you want to take Jessa with you when you kick Darksols ass :D

Here have fun and give Darksol a big slap from me :D

Pick up the level 5 gear and picked up a few levels on the way (mostly thanks to 4 crystal oozes I killed at once.) Jessa stayed with the group of course and we moved on to Dark Sol...

Image

I walked around to all the shops to see the bitching they would do. The Trader wasn't there though. I went into the tavern and they yelled at me for having Jessa... then the trader was back... Odd.

Milo will be remembered in Elven Lore apparently (according to the priest).


Thanks to everyone that participated. It was a lot of fun :)
