Alright, so, the Disgaea run is a victim of writers block like All Roads currently is, because I'm having a bit of issue with the whole writing for 10 characters thing (especially when some of them I feel like I'm not portraying well).

So!  I want a backup project to do on nights when I'm not up for those updates.

Either FFTA or FFTA2.

I'll either make myself (Or Zerdark, if he wants to participate) the main character, and ignore the other non-generics, unless someone really likes Montblanc or Adelle.

On to business though.  Leave a vote for 1 or 2!

Along with race/class perferences.  You can pick your ending passive and reaction if you want, too.  As long as the character can get it, of course.

Oh, and I'm not limiting it to the deploy limit, either. I'll be cycling though the party of whoever wants in. I'll try and make everyone roughly even, but no guarantees. Some I may ignore for a while for the sake of growths, though.

And now I go to work on a few Disgaea updates.

Ooohh, that will be interesting. Honestly, I never used a summoner in TA2. I mean, there are so many good Assassin/Sniper/Red Mage/Spellblade combos....

If A2, Nu Mou Arcanist, please. Nu Mous are super cute :3 Haven't played A2 extensively, so I don't know any good builds... from what I can tell, Arcanist stats kinda suck, so raise him as... an Alchemist or a Black Mage? Doesn't seem like any of the skill sets complement Arcanists well, so go with whatever you like for that.

Oh, and give him some darkness-absorbing gear for Shadow Flare healz.

OK, TA2 is locked in. Current roster:

FeMU as a Viera Red Mage/Summoner with Blood Price
Smash as a... Fighter! How do you feel Smash? Dual Wield, Doublehand, Shieldbearer? Or maybe Geomancy to use those couple of elemental skills?
Fsteak as a Nu Mou Arcanist!
Rock, the Bangaa Dragoon/Templar with Half MP!
Hero, the Hume Blue Mage (or ninja!)
Lao, the Bangaa Defender/Templar, with Blink Counter and.. Elusion? What?
Zerdark will be taking over for Luso, as a Blue Mage. Probably Blue Mage/Seer. Because Seer is amazing.
Comet the Moogle Gunner! Probably Gunner/Mog Knight.
And then we've got Spikaya the Thief!

That's a roster of 9! Still space left, guys. Polls aren't closing! I won't have all of you right away, either. I'll just have to make due and not overlevel...

Oh, and as for myself, I'm undecided. My usual stuff is covered, so I may wait and have myself as a Gria Raptor/Ranger. Or maybe a Sniper/Spellblade.... Or a Hume Illusionist/Seer with Dual Wield....

Anyway, I'm going to get this show on the road. May be a while before the update, as I am doing hard and the first battle is the most obnoxious thing. Damn you Klesta.

Welcome, to FFTA2!

Zerdark: How did we even get here?
Rideps: Fuck if I know.
Zerdark: And why are we schoolchildren?
Rideps: You are going to get sucked into a book while being a delinquent. Just you. We'll just.. Kind of.. I don't know. Use your reality powers to turn people into us.
Zerdark: ...Ok.
*Rideps yanks the journal out of Zerdark's hands and puts down the answers: B,C,C*
Zerdark: I don't intend to do any of those things.
Rideps: So? I want the Clan AP up skill.

Teacher: Zerdark Clemens! You are in trouble! You have been late so many times, you don't get to leave for summer vacation yet, you are going to clean the library.
Zerdark: Can I kill this guy?
Rideps: No.

Rideps: HAHA THE LIBRARIAN IS MEWT.... I never thought about how dumb a name that is... Way worse than Marche, Ritz, Luso.... Other Final Fantasy names.........
*Zerdark messes with a music box and opens a book with empty pages, feeling an urge to write in it, and is then sucked into Ivalice*
Rideps: BYE BYE HAVE FUN I'LL SEE YOU LATER!
Zerdark: JUST WRITE IN THE DAMN THING TOO!
Rideps: No way man, I'm getting ice cream before you can summon me.
Zerdark: DAMN YOU!

-------
Cid: Only 250 gil to kill this huge beast? This job is terrible... And.. Is that a kid? Standing in front of it? HEY KID JOIN THE CLAN SO YOU DON'T DIE!
Zerdark: ....(Sigh) Yeah, ok, whatever. *A judge is summoned and turns Zerdark into a Soldier* I have to start out as a SOLDIER? My magical stats are suffering...

Battle start!

Zerdark: Ok, I'll just replace these two-
Out of nowhere, Rideps voice, with sounds of eating a bowl of icecream in between words: WAIT ZERDARK DON'T DO THAT YET!
Zerdark: Why not?
Rideps: Because, this damn battle is probably the hardest thing in hard mode, and you'll have to go through the whole intro again and have new allies rolled if you fail. So... Don't bother getting attached to Alice and Jared here by making them people you like.
Zerdark: Ok ok, point taken.

Rideps: Oh. And I'm not going to narrate this battle at all. Because I hate it so much.
Zerdark: You're just lazy.
Rideps: Yeah, I don't want to have to rewrite if I fail....

*time passes*
Rideps: WHY CAN'T WE JUST WALK AROUND AND ATTACK KLESTA FROM THE SIDE? THAT'S NEVER A PROBLEM ON HIS OTHER FIGHTS OR ANY OTHER BATTLE ON THIS MAP.
Zerdark: Calm the fuck down and play the game!
*more time passes*

Kikka and Rej help Zerdark triumph over Klesta! Did I say triumph? I meant "made Klesta run away". Fucking cockatrice. Oh, and Cid died. Hurray for no permadeath.

Cid: Well, let's go to town! You are one of us now, let's get you acquainted with everyone!
Zerdark: Will there be food? I haven't eaten all day...

Rideps: Hey Zerdy, I just realized something.
Zerdark: What?
Rideps: Adelle has to do a solo fight late in the game. I'll kind of have to use her.
Zerdark:... God damn non-generics!

Cid: Our clan has no name! Let's name it.
Zerdark: It's Cipher now.
Cid: "Cipher"? Why not "Gully"? I kind of like "Gully". Or maybe "Nutsy"? "Redwings". "Duelhorn"?
Zerdark: NO. CIPHER. Shut up with your generic clan names and enemy clan names! Also, let's accept all of the missions.
Cid: There's only one up right now in Targ Wood, which is the only area we can be in...

Current party:
Zerdark
Level 1 Soldier.
Equip: Broadsword, Bronze Shield, Plumed Hat, Linen Cuirass.

Rej Fsteak
Level 2 Black Mage
Equip: Rod, Hempen Robe

Kikka FeMU
Level 3 White Mage
Equip: White Staff, Hempen Robe

Ostin Rockman
Level 3 Warrior
Equip: Broadsword, Bronze Shield, Plumed Hat, Linen Cuirass

Bilford Rideps
Level 2 Archer
Equip: Longbow (law reward, oohhh yeaaaah.), Leather Clothing

Gerner Bench Warmer (What? Bench warmers are an integral part of the team when hoping to recruit characters below your current level later for the sake of growths!)
Level 3 Thief
Equip: Jackknife, Leather Clothing




Rideps: The best thing about this particular run? I can work on it anytime! Not just when stuck in my room like the D4 run! WOO!

And now I sleep.

I really really hate Klesta.  I think this intro battle is the only one I have ever lost more than once. It's also the only one I can remember ever losing at all, actually..

I seem to remember the Lord of the Flowsand being worse... maybe I just suck, though.
