Let's Play Final Fantasy Tactics 1.3 + Complete:
An Ironman run through the "FFT 1.3 'Easymode' + FFT Complete" RomHacks

Gameplay Mechanics:

Like many of the RPGs of yesteryear, I never had the opportunity to play FFT until fairly recently. Turns out I like it enough that I wanted to do a Let's Play! To keep things interesting for those of you who haven't lived under a Playstation-less rock, I'm going to be using some romhacks to shake things up a bit, and also let you design the characters on my team.

The aforementioned romhack rebalances the game's Jobs so that all of them are viable, cuts a number of cheesy player exploits, retranslates the script into something both intelligible and period-appropriate, retools the AI and enemies to increase the challenge, and all sorts of other good stuff. Also, contrary to what the "Easymode" in the title suggests, the game is a lot tougher than Vanilla FFT. The original FFT 1.3 Romhack had an ungodly difficulty level that didn't resemble a curve so much as a stark wall with "TPK" written all over it, and this is easy relative to that. For added challenge/masochism, this is also going to be an Ironman Run, with all the wonderful permanent character death and no loading old saves a gamer could inflict on themselves. I understand there are a few battles in FFT that can result in an unavoidable loss through the luck of the dice. I'll be reloading the last save in the case of a Game Over, but short of that will roll with whatever the Random Number Gods grant me.

Anyway, before I start rambling any more, let's get this show on the road!

Session 0:
Introduction to Ivalice History


<===   ===>

Welcome, dear students, to "A Brief History of the Lion War". If you've never attended one of my lecture series before, I am Professor Durai, widely considered one of the premier historians of Ivalice's Middle Age. Now before we begin, you are all familiar with the War of Lions, no?

...put your hand down, Golbez. That was a rhetorical question.

You all should have at least summarized it in your last course. If some among you are unfamiliar with the Beoulve family's involvement in the War of Lions, give me a show of hands so I can better gauge where we should... oh. Oh my.

I, ah- that is a large number of hands. I suppose I may need to adjust my lesson plan for the day. Excuse me for a moment... and if you would, please open your textbook to page seven of chapter one, starting with "Ramza Beoulve, who was enrolled in the Royal Military Academy at Gariland..." Once you've read up to page 10, choose one of the members of the Academy that were involved with Ramza in the "Gariland Incident", and write a brief summary of their background and aspirations at the academy. That should give you enough of a foundation, if we start from there with today's lecture. I'd like to collect them before we leave today, but I suppose since this wasn't on the syllabus I'll accept them late. Oh, and be sure to share books with your neighbor if you don't have your own.

Sounds like fun, I've been meaning to try out these hacks (although I missed the easymode one I think), but it was on hold until I had some more time, so... thanks I guess? :P  How are you making this ironman by the way? The game's already kind of ironman-flavored with the permadeath that's in it. Are you just not going to use resurrection magic and kick people out if they die during battle? Also, (for the behind-the-scene curiosity in me) I can see how three of the character choice things you're posing could reflect in-game characteristics, but does the wealthy/low-born option actually mean an in-game choice for us or is it flavor? Regardless, applying for tacticsification:

Name: Robin     (woo lack of creativity)
Sex: Male
Zodiac Sign: Cancer, but doesn't really matter

Wealthy or Low-born? Wealthy (if this is flavor then slightly understanding of the plight of the low-born, but not really getting what they're going through, not having been there himself)
Scholar or Soldier? Scholar
Worldly or Spiritual? Spiritual
Hardened or Green? Green

Other Notes: He's aspiring to be a Bard someday, but would be happy to fill a niche along the way if need be.

Edit: Oh and that intro text is fantastic, by the way.

The moment the lever was pulled, somebody's pet kitten stepped onto the bridge. I read somewhere that if a cat falls more than 11 stories, it instinctively flares its legs out to increase air resistance. This slows it down enough to stick the landing with relatively minor injuries. In Dwarf Fortress, apparently, cats don't do that.

Barbarossa, if it were my LP you would end up as a summoner with talk skills who tried inviting everything in an attempt to catch em all. Then summoning espers to blow them up when that didn't work out.
