Sock 2

As I've said a couple of times before, this is turning out to be my summer RPG. It's kind of weird... I'm really looking forward to seeing how things turn out. Remember that the ultimate prize is a DS Lite! While I know that many people have one already, there's always room for a backup, and of course, it makes great gift material. The end is a long, long ways off still, so keep up the good work!

Today's Tips:

  • For the love of bajeebus, I know how my own game works. YES, some enemies have more HP than other enemies of the same type, so stop assuming that I'm messing up. In fact, I'll even spell it out for you: There's an automatic 10% chance on every new enemy that it will have more HP than normal. Those enemies also, however, have a higher chance of dropping an item upon defeat. Now leave me alone!
  • Also, as some of you have probably noticed, many enemies along the way have built-in Defense Power, Magic Defense Power, Evasion, or Magic Evasion. There are ways to get around these irritating things, but not until you've grown into a more powerful you.

Best of luck, everyone! I'm impressed with how well some of you are doing!

Almost everyone got this one, but a few of you stumbled and put down FFV instead. Doga had one, or a couple, wayyyy back on the Famicom.

#52:
a) Luka (40 Experience)
This one might have been a bit challenging if you hadn't played Secret of Mana, but it's the right answer nonetheless. Still, it was another well-done question.

Submission Form


Honesty is important! Don't spoil the game. Keep in mind that masqueraders will be obvious, since two submissions under the same name will cause me to fire an e-mail to the true competitor based on my records, where I can verify their actions. Anybody caught cheating in this manner will be immediately removed from the competition!

Please fill out your nickname and your actions for the day! Place your answer choices in the respective boxes (don't worry about being precise with wording or anything), and write your action in the action box. You can equip or unequip stuff once per day without taking your action up, too. Examples of actions could be "I want to attack Li'l Ant!" or "I want to buy two Eye Dropses!" or "I want to buy a Wood Sword and Smelling Salts, and I want to equip the Wood Sword!"
