    This is all about Grandma Potpourri!

    Many of you may not even know about Grandma Potpourri but I assure you, she is THE most important character to ever grace the screen of a Final Fantasy game.

    Why? You may ask. Itís a valid question. A stupid question but a valid one nonetheless. I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you just donít know about her. First off, let's analyze where she comes from and what she looks like to understand her as as a character.


    Grandma Potpourri is in Lindblum before things go wickty wack there. She sells pots outside the Weapon and Armor shop. Itís a respectable business, people need some place to store their stuff and thatís where she comes in. She even keeps her pots there when they have the Festival of the Hunt! Youíd think sheíd put them inside at least, but no. No she lets them sit there. Thatís how high of quality her pots are that she offers! She doesnít make much of a living off of them but she has a good time selling them.

    Song and dance are powerful tools. They can be used to express oneself, used to protest, used as a social activity and used as a career. And, where Final Fantasy is concerned, can be very versatile and valuable weapons. Today we look at the power of song and dance, tools used by Bards and Dancers to combat foes, enhance their alliesí strength and ultimately have a cracking good time while doing so. Letís take a look at these underrated classes, and some of the characters who embody the power and passion of a performance. Letís start with the humble bard, shall we?

    Sing Me A Song, Piano Man
    Bards are probably best known as the folk who sing tales of heroes and dragons and all sorts of fantastic legends. Thatís true enough, but the bards of Final Fantasy do more than just tell tales; they live them. We have a broad line-up, so letís jump straight into it! The Onion Kids show off their bard outfits. Classy, ain't they?

    The Onion Kids (III)
    The original bards, the Onion Kids of Final Fantasy III receive the bard job from the Water Crystal. In the NES version of the game, the bard class is used purely to provide buffs to the party. However, in the DS remake, the bards can also damage enemies by using their Sing command, which changes depending on the harp equipped. In addition to harps, bards can also equip knives, though this limits the effectiveness of their Sing command.
    Prince Edward of Damcyan. Monarch, Musician and, uhh, Lover.
    Edward Chris von Muir (IV)
    While the origins of the bard class lie with the Onion Kids of Final Fantasy III, this is perhaps the first sight that western audiences received of the bard class. Edward, also known as Gilbert and Gilbart in some lands, is the crown prince of Damcyan. As such, he ...

    As the map shows, the event will likely be held somewhere around Tokyo, though an exact location has not yet been revealed. Sadly that leaves most of us out of the loop.
