View Full Version : OMG! You entered a new town

So, whenever you come across a new town in any FF. What is your ritual? (e.a do you talk to everybody, investigate every corner of the town for secret treasures..)

I usually drop the storyline and go to the weapon and magick shops to buy the latest things even though I always buy newer things in the next town x.x
Thus I'm in need of a lot of fighting and selling formers weapons, once I'm done with that maybe rest up in the inn a bit (Although I rather use a tent for some reason) and save and go fighting again.
After I've seen all the monsters xD I just go own with the storyline. *is not a mass- talker to everybody in town*

I always take a short brake from the story line, talk to everyone in town. Buy new weapons/armor/materia/whatever and explore the town for secrets. Sometimes (when I really like the music of a particular place) I just stop playing and enjoy the music (FF7 Sleeping Forrest for example). Then continue with the stry line again.

I usually go to the weapons/armour/item shops first, after that i rest at the inn. I always search every town from top to bottom looking for new items and i always talk to everyone at least twice.

Weapons and Armor shop. Then whatever I need to do to advance the story if that town needs me to.

Well, if it was the first time playing the game i would talk to everyone but if it wasnt just the shops

I go to an inn.

I want to heal up my party after the endless random battles between the last town and this one, so I go in there and I sleep up. If there's a pub area (and dammit, there should be if there isn't), then I'll go there too.

Following that, item shop for more healing items, then weapons and armour, and then I go around and steal stuff from people's homes without their permission. (Let's face it, you're endlessly going round houses taking stuff out of barrels and chests. Final Fantasy encourages theft.)

Wow, only got slightly off topic there...

<font color=red face="comic sans ms">I normally go exploring first. I go into houses and open every cupboard that can be opened, and usually do that before I talk to the people in the houses. :p If there's an inn I'll always rest before carying on with the story if I can, just in case. Shops come after exploring houses, because there's always the change I'll find things in the houses that are for sale in the shops anyway (well, rarely, but you never know ;)). I usually carry on with the storyline last, if I have the choice.

Firstly, I buy new weapons and items if need be. Then I talk to the town members to see if they have anything interesting to say. Only after that do I carry out what I meant to do to get through the game.

I usually explore the town, you never know what kind of things you'll find, be it money, weapons, items etc. Then I'd go to the shops and the inn whatever. Then I continue with the story. ^^

I usually look around town and go everwhere i can, then i talk to everyone in the town, then go back and talk to them all again, because some games have different things happen after different places you have gone(star ocean, final fantasy 8). i usually head to the weapons and armors shops to see what i can get and then rest....look around some more, save, go fight to get stronger for that time in the game, then i conitnue on my way.

I usually talk to everyone and explore the town for money or weapons and armor i'm might be buying. The an INN. Then the weapons and armor shops.

I like to walk around and see any neat things in the towns. Then I go and rest up my characters from the long journey that it took to get there.

I usually do the story bit until I get a chance to go shopping for weapons, armor, items, etc. After I shop then I usually go and talk to everyone.

Rest & Save is the first thing I'll do. Then I'll stock up on new weapons, armour, accessories, and items. (Save again, don't want to do that all again if I die) Then I'll talk to everybody in the town at least twice this insuring that I am actually following the storyline.

And thats about it. It works for me, and I think it's a very organised, sensible way of doing it.

I would first heal my characters then save. Then I stock up items that i need and take a look at weapon shops. I usually go past towns quickly and go back on the storyline.

first off...sleepidy sleep. then i usually go buy weapons and that sort. i dont regularly buy items because i am usually a good deel stronger then the monsters and bosses via level up for hours. then i go and find something fun to do....like kicking the ball in ff7 in costa del sol....i did that for like a day, so simple but i think i had a lil help with my friend mary jane : Looo .....then its like-wutever lets talk to people, and then when i realy am getting bored of the town, i decide to make sure i bought good weapons and slept, and then leave the place

I know I'm probably just going to be repeating what others have said, but eh. I save, if I can. Then I heal up at the inn or by using up any of my stocks. Then I explore everything. Every house, every nook, every cranny. I talk to every person I can. I open any chests/cupboards/doors/etc. I can. :p Then I head over to shops and weapons.

equipt weapons
save game
explore.......simple as that

not a big saver or talker when entering new towns..only if there's a cool movie coming up, then i restart and save right before..and only talk if the FF seems to have secrets/boneses related to talking to certain ppl like FF8 with cards and FFX-2 with advertising. other than that i agree with omnislash-kid. although that'll decrease the intimacy between main characters and their environment to just operate like clockwork..

in new town.. find inn *nods* or save point

02-14-2004, 12:13 PM
i go through the town systematically. from my start point i do whatever is nearest (talk to villager, shop) and move on. and i go through a whole town like this
