No egress (except to get Gong)

Save immediately after the battle, and post the savestate in a Zip
It's nice if you leave at least a short battle report

Sweet; I'll take 13 and 21.

Now that everyone's had their first picks, go ahead and pick 3 more battles; then we'll assign the remaining out randomly. :thumbsup:

Awesome. I took 5, 15, and 23.

Now, for random assignments!

Battle 1 goes to: Antman
Battle 3 goes to: Ehow
Battle 6 goes to: Sarah
Battle 10 goes to: Antman
Battle 17 goes to: Sarah
Battle 18 goes to: Lobo
Battle 20 goes to:Lobo
Battle 22 goes to: Ehow
Battle 25 goes to: Sarah
Battle 27 goes to: Antman

Ok, it was less random and more trying to make sure no one had any back-to-back battles. :shifty: Let me know if anyone has an issue with their assignments; and I'll start the game up tomorrow!
PS: I'm open to naming suggestions for our hero. :thumbsup:

Man, a day late already; how embarrassing. :blush:

Talked to a bunch of people, was told to go defend the gate! I don't remember there being anything to pick up in town, so I didn't. :shifty: Bought everyone medical herbs, then headed straight to the battle!

Played pretty aggressively this battle, since the goblins didn't seem too enthused for the fight. The first wave of goblins went down easy; so I regrouped for the final charge! Used max's healing seed on Tao when I put her a little too far forward.Max lvled to 2 killing the first dark dwarf!
Things got dicey for a moment when the other dark dwarf got a second turn before Luke or Low could move; leaving Luke at 1hp. :shock: But Luke soldiered on and made lvl 2 for his trouble.
Ken and Max lead the charge on the rune knight, and Ken lvls to 2! Tao, now out of mp, in stead used her medical herb on Max. Luke finishes the knight off!

Battle 1 complete, no deaths. You're up Lobo!

Shining_Force_(U)_[!]004.png
Ken and Lowe fell behind at the start, while the rest of the force kicked goblins asses

Shining_Force_(U)_[!]012.png
The end of the battle was a bit confuse. The bridge was crossed multiple times in both directions

Shining_Force_(U)_[!]014.png
The force finally reached Guardiana. What would they find there?


I did abuse those goblins so that Hans, Tao and Gong got experienced.
Everyone is lvl3 by now, except from Gong and Lowe, who are lvl2.
No one died.

EDIT: I think Lowe is lvl1 yet, not 2. Used all his MP, the herb, and gave him a couple attacks but can't remember him leveling up.

Well, got first death through a double attack from Rune Knight. Poor Mae. Everybody except for Lowe is level 3-4. Lowe has 52 exp as a level 2. That's about it. Used a few medical herbs with Lowe and used all his mp.

Ehow, you might try saving directly over Lobo's savestate, then renaming it. That ought to preserve the original file format.

I had forgotten to set it not to compress the savestate. Updated post but here it is again. It loads in KEGA now.

Alterone

Lots of good items inside of Alterone. In the first house inside town I picked up a Bronze Lance for Ken. Also found a Middle sword, but since Max already has one equipped, I handed it off to Luke. Inside of the castle there was another middle sword and a wooden arrow, and both do nothing for us, so I sold them off for gold. With the extra gold pickups, and sold items, our gold jumped from around 1000 to 1600. Not to shabby. There was also a Defense potion, Bread of Life and Power potion here. Plus a ton of herbs. So many, that I didn't even bother picking them all up, as inventory is getting kind of full. I took the Healing seeds and left the herbs behind.

We talk to the king, and he is in disbelief that Guardiana was attacked, but he says that he has a tactician that may be able to help us out. But of course it's a trap. The tactician is Kane. Alterone has already surrendered, so we get thrown in prison.

Image

Shortly after, Khris shows up and wants revenge on runefaust, so she joins the party, and opens up a secret passage inside of the prison. It seems kind of risky to have something like this inside of prison, but shining force 2 has one also. Shouldn't prisoners in this world know to look for the secret passage in their prison cell?

Image

So we are thrown into battle when we exit headquarters. It looks like we will have our showdown with Kane, but Dark Sol calls him away to other business.

Battle 4:

I Split the party into 2 groups. One go up the north side of the map, and other to right. I figure with 3 healers now it shouldn't be a problem. Initially there was a bunch of enemies, and they were all moving towards us, but after the initial onslaught, it actually got easier. There were 2 enemies on both sides that just seem to be guarding the bridge. They don't move off of that space to attack. Even when you move a character up to attack one of them the other won't move forward a single space to attack. In retrospect I could've tried using range and not taking any damage from them. After taking them out, there was a small cluster of 2 archers and a Dark Mage left, and none of them seemed to move either. My plan was to send Ken forward to tank the spell from the mage, but it never got the chance. As we inched forward, I was able to move Max in to position to attack the mage, and he got a double attack killing him off. The 2 archers didn't take much after that.
