I dunno. I always thought that FF6 was unbalanced in favor of Mages rather than Fighters. See also: Terra (well, Esper Terra, but still) doing 9999 with Blizzara.

At least it's unbalanced in a way that makes sense.

But I'm still pretty early in the game, so that may have something to do with it.

Most RPGs I've played the magic users do much more damage than the fighters.... eventually anyway. After they learn fireball.

I would agree with you, but I've played Baldur's Gate II. Although the mage has some crippling weaknesses, every single one can be more that circumvented by a truly formidable array of spells. And after a while, having four PCs die because in order to get at a mage they have to dispel invisibility, dispel invincibility fight through a sword shield, survive a flame shield, and then have time stopped so that the mage puts its shield back and calls down a flaming comet, my sympathy for magic users is non existent.

In one way, its a good simulation of how powerful controlling the forces of the universe is. In another way, its goddamn annoying.

If you want a different explanation, mages are girly-men (Or perhaps girly-women).

Well, this is basically very early in the game.

One day, there will be a follow-up to this comic where Hemlock crashes the Moon into the Earth.



Fourteen times.

In retrospect, I should have made it clear in the comic that this was about mages early in the game, but it completely slipped my mind. Stupid me.

I was amused by Panel 3 A LOT before I saw 6. The way it is, it appears that Hemlock was knocked pretty deep into the ground by a mosquito. It's only when 6 shows up that you realize the mosquito isn't THAT powerful.

Oh come on. Fireflies don't have legs that long. You can't even see their legs when they are flying.

I second this opinion.

I have a question:

Why, exactly, are they not staying at Hemlock's?

They probably couldn't find it.

The player is insanely paranoid about unexpected boss fights.

Apropos of nothing in this thread, I see Legendary has reached a new bit of significance.

I'm afraid I don't know to what you are referring.
