Hmmm... I'm pretty darn sure I sent out more letters than I got back
here. Seems some of today's letters got stuck in a time warp. I'm sure they'll turn up eventually, but
in the meantime...
Onswah: Hey everyone I'm Onswah. I figured I do the standard spiel about
me... Um.... Err... Let's see I live in Cleveland and uh..a Music major.
Seriously though, I've been frequenting this website since someone chewwed
out a letter claiming to be from someone's mother about... I'm rambling.
Suffice to say it was a while ago. I could bore you with 598 other boring
things, but I think you get the idea. Letters ho!
Since I've never heard of the guest host you have, I'll just pretend
he's not there, and maybe he'll go away.
It's not working... Oh well. Guess it's hello to Onswah too.
What do you think about rock music in RPGs, specifically heavy metal?
think it's great when a game uses some good rock for something like a
theme. The FF VII boss battle theme comes to mind. It's really cool

Sure it's trite, but seriously how much flavor can you attribute to a games
music. It would be great if the composers in the RPG market got a little
more experimental. Then there would be even cooler things that probably
about 10 people would enjoy. How much fun would it be to have an irregular
meter map airship theme or an atonal love theme? The possibilities are
Electric guitars are a bit underused yes, but heavy metal just doesn't fit with most RPGs. There's a few
times when it would be nice to have final boss music that sounded a bit like Rammstein sure, but in your
traditional classical setting, you're better off sticking with something classical, or folky. Prog always
seems to work though, just look at Valkyrie Profile.
Sigh... Hello Goog and guest,
Did either of you find the abundance of great and fun to use
Arc 2 annoying? There really was no easy way to have them evenly
and not be squashed by a higher level monster. Well... This probelm
really start for me until the final dungeon so I guess it is not so
Now that I think of it, I hate it when a game cuts off previous areas
party enters the final area.
By the way, is it possible to get Mid-Boss as a party member in
I've played through it once, but I know I missed a couple of hidden
Well the leveling part I didn't have too much of a problem with , thanks to
an absurd amount of time spent in the Forbidden Ruins. 71 levels of
goodness, and if you decide to hike it back to the surface, it's 142. Fie on

I tend towards picking a few favorites and leaving the rest to rot.
Oh, and no. No Mid-Boss for you.
