    Unfortunately, I had to deal with my own stupidity first. I decided to boost a few levels for Garnet, Steiner & Marcus outside Treno. I got a distinct whiff of the time when Daenerys was stranded outside the city of Qarth in Game of Thrones... so I should have known something was going to go wrong.

    I spent my morning train journey merrily cutting down foes outside the gates of Treno. Nothing too troubling, the odd spider and flying bug thing. Raised a few abilities, levels were coming along nicely. Towards the end of my train journey I used a quick tent then decided to see what was in the nearby forest... bad move.

    I met three of these Mandrogora things that just looked like Hoppip from Pokemon. They all decided to use this 'Chestnut' move and my entire party was wiped out within about four moves. What the mother-smurfing hell, game?

    The best part is that when I used my tent, I didn't bother to save. Why didn't I, you may ask? Because I called Mog by accident not long ago... and when I told him I didn't need him he got in a mood with me. This being the case, I didn't want to pester him for a tent AND a save this time.

    I WAS AFRAID I WAS GOING TO HURT THE FEELINGS OF NON-EXISTENT FINAL FANTASY MOG.

    Smurf my life.

    On the plus side, I'm very much enjoying the bloopy bleepy overworld theme.

    Oh man, there's so much stuff to bid for at the Treno auction house.

    Anything worth spending my hard-earned gil on?

    Depends on which disc your currently on. Disc 2. Reflect Ring
    Disc 3, the Dark Matter ​and the other key items for various other items like Excalibur, y'know.

    Thank you! I'm on disc 2 so I'll be sure to grab the reflect ring.

    The piano music here in Treno is lovely

    How cool is Cleyra? A city/villagey/tree-thing contained within a sandstorm? Awesome.

    Climbing Cleyra's Trunk was a chore-and-a-half though. I kept getting stuck in those sand-whirlpool things. I managed to learn White Wind with Quina though which is coming in very handy. Auto-Life was learned too. My blue magic spells are totting up!

    I loved Cleyra Village at the top of the tree. It reminds me of Lothlorian from The Lord of the Rings only with severe weather conditions. Young Prince Puck got himself into a spot of bother with a sand boss so we had to lend a hand. I gave stealing the items a go but lost patience after 6 or 7 turns. I only snagged an Annointment but I just can't be arsed with the slog.

    Freya is re-united with her love but... he appears to have lost his memory. How incredibly sad :-( I was only joking when I called him Michael Flatley but Freya participates in a bit of Celtic Tiger with her kinsmen... weird. The harp player was a tad enthusiastic and she accidentally broke the harp... along with the sandstorm spell protecting Cleyra. Whoops.

    On the plus side, the view is now much better but the Black Mage Army showed up to put a dampener on things. I'm currently helping the village people (of Cleyra... not YMCA fame) escape the evil clutches of the evil-doers. I was hoping to have completed this section on my lunch but I had to cut things short right in the middle of the mayhem.

    I leave for my train soon so my adventures will continue momentarily!

    Beatrix is a dick. I don't know what you nerds are raving about. Steiner is the same. I'm sure it's still early days but I'm middle of disc 2 now!

    Steiner being a dick in the first chunk of the game (and Zidane winding him up constantly) is part of his charm! It's fun watching him change as the game goes on and wrestling with his conscience. I've never been quite swayed by Beatrix though, possibly because I got annoyed that I had to lose to her three times.

    Beatrix is a badass dick. Where you are now though is a bit of a turning point for many characters.

    DO YOU NOW UNDERSTAND WHY FREYA IS GREAT THOUGH?!

    Beatrix wins because of disc three

    If you don't like her after those scenes, you are a heartless monster and that's a fact

    Yeah, Freya is great so far. I've always loved dragoons though. I guess I'll just see how Beatrix and Steiner pan out.

    Steiner and Marcus just escaped their cage. It took me AGES.

    Also, what's up with the outfits for the Alexandrian Soldiers?

    Well you see, they have to do a lot of running to chase you down. So they need that freedom!

    Plus booty.
