Once again, despite the amount of time I put in today, once again, I came up short of my expectations. I finished the Sealed Cave, but it was rough, in part because I got momentarily stuck in certain parts, such as the section where your character must navigate a corridor blind. Of course, this meant lots of experience points for my fabulous foursome -- Edgar, Sabin, Setzer, and Terra.
Because of the rules of the challenge, I have to keep the levels of my characters as even as possible. Since Locke, Gau, and Cyan were my three lowest leveled party members (Gau was a measly Lv. 18!), and I hadn't used them in a while I had to choose them in a three-man party. Don't worry, once these next few sections are done, Mog is going to learn both spells and Dances. But I have to get past this dinner and the Thamasa-related events first.
Unfortunately, I forgot that the airship, upon crash-landed near Maranda, which meant I had to walk all the way to Vector. I stopped in Maranda to determine if anything had changed and soon found that it was the same as it was on my previous visit. Then I walked with purpose to Vector, then saved.
