Horray longass titles! So this is the start of my written Let's Play of Final Fantasy Tactics. A romhack known as "Vesion 1.3" produced by Insane Difficulty. The hack does a LOT of rebalancing and fixing of classes, eliminating some broken aspects and adding a few more, like changing Archers and their useless "Charge +x" skill to Marksmen and giving them status-afflicting arrows. As well as generally improving the enemy AI and making the whole of the game harder.

This particular version of the game is 1.3.06, so it's not the most up-to-date, but it's also a particular mod that changes one of the biggest things about 1.3, which is enemy scaling. Players of FFT know that only random encounters scale with you, keeping at about your level, where story battles were fixed in level. 1.3 has all encounters scale with you! However, this version of 1.3.06 removes the scaling, so that you can grind (mostly for JP!) and be a little over-prepared for story fights while randos are harder. All the fights are harder.

http://www.insanedifficulty.com/idwiki/index.php?title=Final_Fantasy_Tactics_1.3 Here you'll find a whole detailed list of things. So let's move on to the perspective.

While there are a bajillion and one LPs on YouTube for the game, including Romhacks and War of the Lions (and it's Romhack 1.3), this LP is written from a character perspective! As per the story of FFT, Orran Durai somehow wrote and documented Ramza's adventure. Fuckall if we know how he did that as he never joins the party. But that said, nobody actually documents the adventures of the people who were with Ramza; the Gariland Academy recruits. So from that this LP will be written, more or less, from the perspective of one of those characters.

Jacqueline (or Jacky as the random generator gave me) will be tasked by a combination of Darlavon and another scholar who all had a strange coinciding dream that something very important was to happen to one of the academy's recruits; Ramza Beoulve. Now we all know what happens, but in the sense of historical preservation, Jacqueline decides to try and tag along with Ramza and his travels, as well as convincing a few of her fellow recruits that something will happen and she needs their help to see things through.

That said, most of the LP will be from her eyes, some chapters may be seen from the eyes of others, or interviews with the characters. Jokes and mockery of Ramza behind his back will be had. This LP isn't about Ramza, it's about those generics that supported him that never gained position or fame afterward. After all, who cares about a buncha random heretics (clearly guilty by association)

So let us rock on! And always remember. Surrender or die in obscurity!
