@SamJaz: Why do i have a bad feeling about this (and i said it's your fault)?
@RadicalRin: Lol. I am really, really enjoying this floor. I honestly hope the exploration team ave half as much fun as I'm having.
@RadicalRin: Aah, okay.
I was actually getting concerned at one point that Taylor or Arsenal were becoming my main characters, Since SJ was confined to Hellscraper, which is pretty much what led me into using him outside.
He's taken some serious power jumps since he first fought Phantom at that museum, hasn't he? Mind you, Gen and Phantom have grown significantly stronger down here too, what with phantom's Mk III's and his growing ability to work with others, and Gen's growing respect for others and ingenuity in solving problems that can't be punched.
Salt flats scene was one of my favourite Gen moments.
@SamJaz: Yeah, Phantom's changed a lot. Crown is a very sociable person, Phantom is not. Though he actually didn't get any stronger in the Hellscraper. He had Mark I to IV all along, he was just holding back at the museum and before mid Hellscraper i was still calling them "weakest" "second weakest" and so on. His major power up comes when him and Sam get their ass kicked by the NPC and when Phantom goes a bit villain crazy on the world.
@SamJaz: Oh that. Yeah he won't be getting powered up there. After he finishes HS there's gonna be a Tomb raid in Egypt (all of FCL will be invited), after that he'll steal the pope's ring for shits and giggles, lastly the third thread will be for him stealing Pokemon (hope the whole Poke thing is still up, and btw what's Power Trick doing?)
@RadicalRin: Alternatively, Clare can enrol there for a semester, qualify as a qualified trainer, and legally take a party of up to three from the island at a time, the rest of her team being available via Cloud technology (Copyright Bill Productions TM). It's what Hitomi and Matt did.
