Play 7. I hear it's really good. I own a copy and still haven't played it for more than 5 minutes.

5 & 6 are good, if you like oldschool, non-3D games.

Tactics took too long to do anything. It made concept of 'Dungeon Crawls' look fast-paced by comparison.

Personally, I find that the Final Fantasy series has kinda been going downhill ever since 9. I'm not gonna to go into 11(or Final Fantasy Online as it should have been called), cause y'all would track me down and slay after the first 15 minutes of reading.

What I've heard about Legends was less than encouraging. I fail to see how Mystic Quest was a Final Fantasy. Never got far in Crystal Chronicles. And I'd rather hang myself than play Tactics.

It's not about the longest. It's about doing decent ones.

On a sidenote: I felt I had to tack in a "What happened to James after the explosion" post before someone tried to consume his soul or something.

Also, consider James out of the game for a good while. If this RP lasts long enough, you might see him again. Y'all also see some other casting changes for the upcoming next story arc

***Meanwhile on another plane of existance***

As the battle raged on, well after James's explosion, elsewhere, Suki lounged around in her room, practicing her singing, not knowing why she enjoys doing it or why she feels the need to keep it a secret. It was quite nice not having James around to bother her and send her to do inane tasks, though she did prefer doing grunt-work over being stalked and harassed by a hormone-driving egotistical god. It was definitely more than a fair trade in her mind, especially now with James not being here to order her around. For quite some time, Suki had enjoy such freedom. That all ended with a knock on her door.

Suki got up and rushed to the door, ready to dispatch whoever would dare to interrupt her peace. When she opened the door see saw James, much to her disliking. "It's a shame whoever did that to you didn't finish the job," Suki said coldly, as she poked one of James's burns, "Someday I'll have to remedy that." "Nice to see you too," James said with a smile, "I hope you didn't miss me too much." It took Suki much restraint to keep from trying to strangle him. After all, she had sworn her loyalty to him, even if was only to get him to stop stalking and trying to seduce her. Surprisingly, James had actually kept his end of the bargain over the years, and so she would keep hers.

"How shall I be of service today," Suki said bitterly, barely able to get the words out of her mouth. "All I need is an update on all the critical stuff and I'll be fine," James said. "Last time I checked sales were up 5%. Your friend finally found his house keys. You have 12% more followers. Gnomes finally managed to kill themselves off with a really stupid invention. There was much rejoicing. The Elves finally defeated the Orcs. Took them long enough," Suki said professionally, "Oh, and there are a few less annoying deities in some of the pantheons you regularly deal with." "How'd that happen," James asked with great interest.

Suki looked at James and said, "Don't worry about it. It's not really important. But on a sidenote, could you try to stay out of the meeting room. They're currently cleaning it." "Whatever. I'm going to my room to rest up. Those suicide spells take a lot out of guy," James said, "Oh, and when you see her, could you try to not kill Minoko." "Why not," Suki said with a hint of confusion in her voice. "Because Minoko and I are now officially lovers, as per her request," James replied, "Who would have thought that Minoko was in love with me." Suki stared and said, "How in the hell did someone as stupid as you ever become a god?! I am amazed that you can even speak with the seemingly limitless idiocy you continuously display. No wonder no one likes you." James glared angrily at Suki for a brief moment and then teleported to his room. It would be quite some time before he would be in any kind of condition to do much of anything.

You left out "countless creations"()ut they aren't real people, so their deaths are meaningless) from the death toll.

I know for my stuff: "James's private army," which wasn't ready for any real combat is hiding away at the nearby fort, while Minoko's army of real people(not creations) is somewhere nearby waiting for the attack. And the army of creations(similar to those in Geneforge, but not Geneforge) was fighting both the demons and eachother.

More importantly, I honestly don't remember many real people(other than major characters) being in the area. Now, perhaps I'm mistaken, but I was under the impression that most of Kirkwood had been evacuated to protect the people from the inevitable demon assault.

After the big demon battle is over, I think we should start a new OOC before we push this one too far and it crashes like the IC did.

Managing to get back on her feet, Minoko surveyed her surroundings. Geltor was nowhere to be found and Avin was collapsed on the ground nearby. Army that Kesh and Ryan has made was really looking ragged and was at less than a fourth of its original numbers. For some reason it seemed like half of the remaining forces were just attacking any random thing, not just demons. As she looked more closely, Minoko soon figured out why. Kesh was nowhere to be found. Without someone controlling them, Kesh's forces just started attacking any random creatures that weren't them. Minoko teleported to Ryan who was currently fending off seven demons while trying to maintain some degree of control over his own minions. Minoko pulled out her kama, hacked down several demons, and asked, "What the hell's going on?!"

"Well, we were doing okay until a small elite force got past our defenses, killed Lotus, and injured Kesh, That self-righteous, pretentious jerk left with a speed and degree of wussiness that I have never seen before in all my life, leaving me to clean up the mess he left behind. If I ever see him again, he is so dead," Ryan said with great agitation as he barely dodged various would-be fatal blows from a demon he was fighting. "That's less than encouraging," Minoko responded, trying to conceal her distress with the situation, "Where is Joshua by the way?" "Well, last I saw of him, he was in a battle frenzy, slaughtering various demons left and right with no concern for his own life," Ryan said as he killed a few demons, "In my past dealings with him, I've never seen such recklessness. I'd give him about 5 more minutes before he gets himself killed. Though I will admit, he has been surprisingly effect at taking some of the heat off of me for what little good it has done."

"I'll watch you back. Just keep wearing them down until your out of creations, then get the hell out of here. Afterwards, enjoy your newfound freedom. I hope you give Kesh the beating he deserves," Minoko said as she ripped a demon's arm off and beat him to death with it. "Hopefully the demons will be worn down enough by the time the creation army is destroyed," Minoko thought to herself, "then we would be assured a clear and decisive victory when I send in the regular, non-shock troops."

***Meanwhile***

Sara watched the battle from a safe distance, waiting for the signal for her to take her army into the fray. She wanted nothing more than to go in with her army and plow through the demon hoards. She hated having to hide and wait like this, but it had to be done this way. Sara had her orders and would never dare to defy Minoko. As she watched, she was amazed by what she saw. The great and powerful, Kesh Torahn fled after experiencing only minor difficulties. He even left several rogue creations behind! James unleashed his most powerful magics and then blew himself up with no real positive effect. And the big bad demon guy was defeated.

"All that remains is the demon army," Sara thought to herself, "If the two name-brand life creators were as smart as they pretend to be, the demon army would have been destroyed a long time ago. Perhaps men really are worthless pieces of garbage... No. That's exactly what those feminist psychos want me to think." Regaining her focus, Sara continued to watch the battle, waiting for a chance to prove her worth.

It took quite some maneuvering, but James finally had reached Geltor, one of the most powerful enemies James had even faced. James had failed to defeat Geltor the last time the two met. That bitterness still lingered on, but far more than James's pride was at stake here. It was here on this day that would shape the world for generations to come, though who would come out on top was still uncertain.

As he neared Geltor, James conjured one of his energy balls and threw it at Geltor, barely missing him and killing a few nearby demons. "Well that kinda sucked," James thought to himself. Wielding a sword he had picked up off of a random demon he had slain on the way here, James moved quickly to Geltor. As soon as James neared him, Geltor swung his mighty energy swords with great skill and precision, while James blasted Geltor point blank with his energy ball. While most of the energies from the multi-element sphere were canceled out by Geltor's energy immunities, the few that weren't managed to still do some damage. Unfortunately for James, when he did that, Geltor landed 2 perfect hits, one of which nearly decapitated him.

"That didn't work very well," James thought to himself as he backed off, "I'll have to try something else..." Then James got an idea and began to cast a spell. As Geltor started to get closer to James, a 4 large rocks appeared high in the sky and proceeded to fly down towards Geltor at high speeds. After Geltor dodged the rocks, they suddenly exploded upon impact with the ground, sending Geltor flying back 60 feet. Staggering back to his feet, Geltor managed to catch a brief glimpse of James, whose eyes shined with hellfire, just before getting caught in the area of another wave of exploding rocks. As the third was about to arrive, Geltor managed to barely get out of the area just in time to avoid being hit again.

Watching James, Geltor took a brief moment to assess the situation and soon realized that his attack was taking it's toll on both of them, not just him, and seemed to be taking more out of James than him. James was currently bleeding from every orifice on his head and was barely able to stand, while burns started to appear on different locations his body. "I can't survive too many more of those," Geltor thought, "But neither can he... Perhaps there's some way to turn this to my advantage..." As Geltor thought, he soon had the perfect trick to use.

Geltor began to mutter some brief words and do some well concealed hand gestures. As soon as he had completed the Invocation, all 4 rocks from the next wave of attacks had landed on his location. The resulting explosion destroyed many demons and left a huge crater where they had impacted. To James's surprise, there was no trace of Geltor. That is, until James looked behind him. Before James could react, Geltor had stuck him with both of his elemental swords. James staggered back. The injuries were getting to be much more than he could withstand.

"I didn't expect him to last this long," James thought to himself, "At this rate, I'll be completely destroyed. I may be hurt, but so is he. There's no way I can defeat him and live..." Using the last of his strength, James grabbed Geltor and called down one last wave of meteors right on top of both him and Geltor. Just as the meteors were about to hit, Geltor managed to break free from James's grasp. Geltor had just barely cleared the blast radius when the rocks exploded. James had not been so fortunate. The damage from using that spell so much had taken its toll. Though he was badly injured, James managed to cast a couple of buffing spells so that he could remain standing.

James slipped the left sleeve of his jacket back and looked at his wrist watch, checking the time. "I so should have gotten a doomsday weapon instead of this stupid indestructible watch," James thought to himself, "I'm not getting ahead in this fight and I still haven't bought Minoko enough time for the contingency. I've got to come up with some way to beat him..." As he had a quick revelation, James stared at Geltor with a sadistic look on his face, "Let's face it, I'm as good as dead. We both know it, so I don't see any harm in going out with a nice little bang, pun intended!" Having said that, James teleported in the blink of an eye. Before Geltor could react, James appeared behind Geltor and exploded in a bright flash of light.

When the explosion was over, Geltor laid on the ground, with many broken bones and severe burns all over his body. Using the last bit of his strength, Geltor called upon his dark powers to rip the life force right out of any mortal beings and demons near him. As soon as Ryan and Kesh realized Geltor was absorbing their creations, the two directed them out of the range of Geltor's draining field, but by then Geltor had recovered much of his lost strength.

It had taken a decent bit of time, but the army had been made, and none too soon. The hoards of demons were already here and on the move. With Lotus watching their backs, Kesh and Ryan could were free to use all of their concentration to exact better control of their forces. Kesh directed his part of the army to attack the demons head on, while Ryan's half tried to maneuver behind the demon army for a basic pincer attack. While this was going on, James looked through his jacket pockets, in a desperate attempt to find the sword he had put up so long ago, but alas, he could not find it. He would have to do a grand battle without his most blade, which did not sit well with him. "I'll manage without it," James thought to himself as he began his search for Geltor among the masses, occasionally taking a brief moment out of his search to strike down any demons that tried to mess with him. With the recently manufactured army engaging the demons and her normal army waiting nearby in reserve, Minoko began the ritual. It would be a long, drawn out, strenuous affair with little room for error. With any luck, the small compliment of body guards watching her back would be enough.

That's a lot of stuff to lose and try to carry on(it was even worse when it happened to IoB). I know there were at least a few posts that most of us never saw. Even if we tried to recreate the lost stuff, I don't think we all will be able to remember enough stuff to do it(and what we did would at best be just a mere shadow of the originals).

On a sidenote. Apparently no one uses Internet Explorer on a PC, or one of those people who do would have at least tried my suggestion about trying to find the lost ICs in the 'temporary internet files' and posted about their failing... That really sucks...
