I went through Daryl's Tomb. Other than not being able to remember the order of engraving "The World is Square" (backwards) and backtracking because I forgot the sequence of what to do in his dungeon, it was not really memorable. In fact, the only thing of note was that I was in an impatient mood so I killed the Presenter with X-Zone. I fought Dullahan, using a great deal of of Runic to absorb a lot of his spells. After killing him, I walked down the long stairs and watched the sequences that followed. Before I knew it, I was on my way to Maranda and I entered it.
While in town, I talked to the people and bought some armor, then talked to Lola and sent the carrier pigeon on its way. I saved then took one step on the map onto the Falcon's landing space, and the next thing I knew, I was attacked by a Mantodea, a Sprinter, and Two Spek Tors. The latter two weren't too bad but the giant mantis kept killing my characters in one hit. Before I knew it my party had been annihilated.
I was instantly kicked back the spot I saved and took another step, which triggered the same battle. This time, I did remember to summon Golem (who was equipped on Setzer). The enemies killed Celes and Sabin, and since Edgar and Setzer were behind them by approximately a whole level, I left them dead, allowing the two laggers to win the battle and gain the experience.
After healing my characters, I decided to knock the battle with the Earth Drgn out of the way, and re-equipped my characters to face an Earth-based monster. I then took to the skies and flew over to the Opera House. I grew a little scared, hoping I wouldn't run into Doom Gaze just yet, and fortunately, I did not. I went into the Opera House and fought the Earth Drgn, which was not a difficult task with a Cherub Down on Edgar and Gaia Gears equipped on the other characters.
After beating the Earth Drgn, I left then went back to Maranda. I bought an Oath Veil for no other reason than that I could, then went outside and saved.
I'm not done playing for the day, but I wanted to take a break and actually write a report, rather than actually continue playing, make up a good portion my lost time, and then forget to write a report. Besides, after an hour of playing, lag begins to rear its ugly head on this thing, and it wouldn't do me much could to stumble around aimlessly any more than I usually do.
