Sock 2

Yeah, I know. I was surprised by the Wait Mode too, but that's what they're there for. I'd personally say "be careful" to anyone thinking about using one, though, because based on the comments I've received from some, a lot of you really don't like Wait Mode users much. Hmm, hmm.

Today's Tips:

  • Every skill in this game is unique to just one class. In other words, if you learned Fire in Black Mage, you couldn't have learned it anywhere else in most instances.
  • How do you win the DS Lite? Well, figuring that out is part of YOUR job as a contestant. Of course I know how.

Again, things start up again on the day that I get back- August 28th, which seems far off, but really isn't so much time from now when you think about it, especially in terms of geologic time.

--------

As we left Zaile behind, he called to us in his strange, frail-sounding voice.

"Thank you... for your business. My true hope is that you crush Mazell beneath your heel. I have been waiting... for so long for this day."

"Th-thank you, sir." Veronica said.

"Your weakness is now my strength, and for that, I am truly grateful. You are young and full of vitality... you will recover that that you have lost in little time. Because of the amount of business that you gave me, I will reveal this to you: Mazell, he gains enormous power as he grows weary. His spirit will Protect him when he is in need, encasing him in a Shell of light. And beware, for his wicked spells can bring destruction that is unparalleled. He does, however, carry in his soul something so great that space and time might be unlocked."

"Uh... thank you. Now let's get going!" Shayla urged. After leaving the strange old character behind, the tunnel turned into a murky, dark cave. We knew as we fought our way through the hordes of monsters, however, that we were getting closer to our destination...

--------

The truly divine despise the greedy.
Beware, all ye who amass without bounds
for ye shall be cut down
by the divine one.

Sadly, since I'm gone next week, this game will not progress until the day I resume: That is, Tuesday, August 28th! Damn Wait Modes... remind me, for Sock 3, to make them just a one-day phenomenon like they were in the original. Ah well, it's the game.
