This Tactics Ogre post is brought to you by Hammer to Fall.
Got an entry for a character that I don’t believe ever appears in the game. This is the formerly named Gilbert. I took this picture because it was cool to see an entry on him. He DOES show up in Ogre Battle 64. That game tends to get the major OB characters that TO didn’t have.
Hey, look at that, Move +1. The earliest movement skill of FFT is an endgame-level skill here.
Not unlike the Nazis in Indiana Jones films, Lodis is all about ancient artifacts of power, even though they already have a dominating empire. In all honesty their scheming to control another country (when they don’t outright take it over themselves) would be enough plot-wise, but the game goes the supernatural route near the end. FFT does the same thing, but it starts much earlier.
It’s badass when he gets called “Tartaros.”
Erm, Denim, Ozma is right over there, might not want to be reminding her of how you killed her brother.
…well that was an unexpected bit of humor.
Oz was a dick and he isn’t missed.
I can’t remember exactly when I realized that Anatomy would be a good thing to add to Denim’s skill list, but it was probably still in chapter 1. It JUST hit rank 2. Out of 8. These things level extremely slowly, though persistence does pay off. Canopus has maxed out his bow skills and has all four of its finishers (2, 4, 6, and 8). My Denim (at this time, not back when I took this picture) has maxed katanas as well, though dual-wielding does let you do it twice as fast.
Petrify is still quite useful, but not broken like it used to be. It can (and will) wear off naturally, and you can’t do nearly as much damage to units while they’re stoned. Often it’s a better idea to charm them instead, but nothing outside of death will keep them out of the picture for too long.
Castles are no match for Canopus.
All DKs commanders have one of these. They hurt like hell. I’m not sure of their true nature, it might be a level 8 finishing move.
About half of my crew has something to say to Barbas as it turns out.
So much burl.
Wasn’t expecting that.
A little more humor mixed in with the serious.
Barbas manages to get away. Well, there are more important things to do now.
