IF I COULD BE ANY KIND OF FLOWER I'D BE A BIG ANGRY COCK

Can anyone please explain to me what free form scenario system actually means. Does it just mean you can to to different places

Basically you have free reign over where you go and when in a scenario and every region is explorable by anyone (with a few exceptions) but their relevance to a character's main quest will vary. There are points of no return on every characters scenario and the game will warn you if you're about to agree to something that will lock you in to the ending.

SaGa Frontier is from the era when Square had fancy system names for everything up to and including "you can go wherever you want and there are different character you can play as "

I refused to go right and up the stairs. I defeated the Griffin and saved Gina.

I'm hungrier than a green snake in a sugar cane field.



Any idea how much HP a Big Digger has? Not sure how close I am to being able to take one if these things down.

I really want the weapons and mech skills they have

i was doing some reading about monster systems to do riki's scenario and i found this collection of interviews with the team:

my favorite bit's this

Main Staff Interview posted:

―Regarding the “sparking” system, what kind of rules are there for sparking abilities?
Koizumi

Each character has an established “time” where it’s easiest to learn a specific Art. There are also spark tree hierarchies where using Art A makes it easier to spark Art B. These are the key factors in determining spark rates…but to tell the truth, even I don’t know which Arts will spark and when.

―Whaaat?!
Koizumi

It’d be boring if you knew everything about the game when playing, wouldn’t it? That’s why, when I was making final adjustments to the system, I changed the parameters so that even I wouldn’t understand them. Then I could enjoy playing the game, too (laugh).

So I never understood the whole "Shuzer has Red's father's brain" bit at the end of your fight with him. Does that mean Shuzer had Dr. Okonogi's brain implanted in his own skull? Why would you do something like that? How does Shuzer know that Alkaiser is Red in the first place? Wouldn't that mean that Red's identity has been revealed and his memory should get erased? Before the fight Shuzer acts like he doesn't even know who Alkaiser is! These are the questions that have been plaguing me for 20+ years.

ahhhh! i actually read an interview about this! shuzer implants red's dad's brain somewhere in his body so he can feel it suffer as shuzer does evil stuff, he can't read its memories but can feel okonogi's feelings and emotions until alkaiser kicks his rear end

33 Why does Shuzer have Dr. Okonogi’s brain implanted in his body?
He wanted Dr. Okonogi to suffer. The Doctor’s brain is still alive, by the way, so that’s why messages like “STOP!” appear whenever Shuzer hurts Red. But Shuzer can’t help but enjoy hearing that voice (laugh). He takes pleasure in the suffering of others.

Shuzer can be taken down with one more hit after he says “I’ve got Okonogi’s brain!”, so go ahead and use your special move while shedding bitter tears.

boss HP scales with your battle rank so you might have had a lower BR going in

TIL that the game timer doesnt pause if you put the game to sleep unless you actually pause the game first, so all my clears have 100+ hours on them. i thought it was some weird thing with battle rank lmao

turns out the new superboss modes of the final bosses are pretty hard and it is indeed possible for three characters spamming DSC to run out of WP and the boss is still standing so

yeah that's pretty cool

Halfway through the scenarios and this game owns. Emelia's and T260G's are probably my favorites so far.
