Solo Black Wizard Party
I decided to go for the gold immediately. I have done a couple of solo parties before, but never recorded them like this. I thought I would try one of the hardest ones right off the bat. I have never seen a solo black wizard party recorded anywhere (of course, there might be a reason for that), though many have theorized it. Let's see if I can do it...

12:24 a.m. Started...here we go.
12:29 a.m. Oops...won the fight with two mages. Saved and went after it again.
12:33 a.m. Got it. FIRE is very handy at the beginning of the game. Saved it at the inn with one black mage. Time for the fun to begin...
12:34 a.m. Imp got a critical hit, but I survived. Reached Level 2. I just wanted to get started. I will quit tonight after Level 3.
12:38 a.m. Five imps wiped me out. I used FIRE every round, and it still wasn't enough. Resetting...
12:42 a.m. I tried to fight with my knife, and almost lost to three imps. Since I have to return to the inn after every fight, might as well just use FIRE every round (I will not survive otherwise).
12:45 a.m. Five imps beat me again. Pathetic.
12:48 a.m. Next fight: Five imps. I hit Reset.
12:48 a.m. (still) Five imps again. Reset.
12:52 a.m. Took down two parties of four imps, and one party of three (saving between each). Reached Level 3. I am quitting for the night.
Tuesday, May 11, 2004
12:18 p.m. Logging in.
12:25 p.m. I got hit by four imps on the way back to the inn (what were the chances) and barely managed to get away.
12:33 p.m. In an attempt to replenish some of my money, I got a strike first and attempted to fight three imps with my pocket knife. I managed to win the fight with 24 HP, and didn't go back to the inn. Instead, I got in another fight (with three imps again) and used my magic to beat them. It was a calculated risk, but it worked. Then I went and saved it, resulting in a net gain of 6 G. To anybody else crazy enough to attempt this: do not buy things that you do not absolutely have to have at the beginning, like potions. You will need all the money you can get for the inn.
12:41 p.m. Yeehaw!! Took down five imps. I had 1 HP for the last three rounds, and every round the remaining imp struck first and missed. You gotta love that!
12:47 p.m. I did the math. I have 36 G, and I need 142 EXP for Level 4. If I fight six parties of four imps each (24 EXP), I will level up, and with the net loss of 6 G on each fight (24 G from the fight minus 30 G for the inn), I have just enough money to do it. Five imps is still too much for me. Until I reach Level 4, I will just reset the game (and I will not record it) if I don't get a party of four imps.
12:57 p.m. After three successful fights with four imps, one party got to strike first and killed me.
1:01 p.m. Just for fun, I tried a party of five imps, and won it again. I can now afford one party of three imps. Maybe five imps isn't that bad after all...
1:06 p.m. Tried five imps again. They kicked my butt. 40 EXP to Level 4...
1:08 p.m. Five imps destroyed me again. I guess I am too greedy...
1:11 p.m. Almost beat them! Was down to one imp and had 5 HP left. I dealt 5 DMG to him and he struck back for 4. Next round he happened to come out first and killed me.
1:14 p.m. Booyeah!! Take that!!! 10 EXP to Level 4.
1:18 p.m. Four imps almost killed me, but I beat them. Level 4!! I have work to do, so I am logging off for now.
6:14 p.m. Logging in.
6:49 p.m. Now that I have four Level 1 spells, I can usually do two fights between each trip to the inn, unless one of them is a five imp party. Still don't think I'm ready for the Temple of Fiends, but I'll attempt it at Level 5. I am now only 64 points away, so it shouldn't be long. I have a meeting at 7:00, so I am logging out for now.
Wednesday, May 12, 2004
11:54 p.m. Logging in. I plan to get to Level 5, beat Garland, and possibly get to Pravoka during this session.
12:02 p.m. Level 5. I bought a heal and a pure with my remaining money (wow, that's not very much for all the leveling I've been doing). I am going to take a stab at the Temple of Fiends.
12:09 p.m. I made it to the Cap and got out, only hitting a ghoul (which I killed in one shot of FIRE) and running away from four wolves and a grey wolf. When I got out, though, I then realized that I didn't have any more tents to save it. I will have to make the long trek back to Coneria without saving first.
12:15 p.m. Made it! How lucky can you be? Ran into a party of five imps which I dispatched, and then managed to run away from a party of four imps ten steps away from Coneria. Saved with the Cap...hey doesn't that DOUBLE my Absorb rating? I need some more levels (and two tents) before I try that again. Right now, I got the munchies. Be back in 20-25 minutes.
12:42 p.m. I'm back.
1:11 p.m. Slain by imps, which is now a rare occurrence. I am also venturing north to fight wolves and grey imps, though only one fight at a time, usually. 370 points to Level 6.
1:16 p.m. Slain by imps again. Tried to do three fights and got nailed. Too greedy... 322 points to Level 6.
1:34 p.m. Level 6. I now have three tents and a heal. I am heading up to the TOF, where I will try to fight Garland. If I fail, I will level up some more.
1:36 p.m. Saved outside the TOF. Going in...
1:40 p.m. Hey, I won!! Saved it at Coneria. I now have five tents and a heal (I didn't try for the cabin, because it would have been too long of a stint inside the TOF). I'm going to see how close I can get to Pravoka. A lot of running, more than likely.
1:42 p.m. Two ogres?! Aaahh!!
1:44 p.m. Arrived: Pravoka. Yay! Had to save it in a tent, because I had no money. This might be a short-lived trip.
1:46 p.m. The pirates tore me up. Nope, not yet. I have class, so I am logging out for now.
6:48 p.m. Logging in.
6:57 p.m. The only thing I can beat over here is two creeps, which only gives me 30 G (not enough to save at the inn). I have to go back to Coneria until I am stronger.
7:02 p.m. Made it back to Coneria. I need a couple of more levels.
7:25 p.m. Beat five imps with no magic and low HP! Bought a LIT spell and saved it. Forget about the wolves for now. Imps give more G for just a little less EXP.
7:53 p.m. I am successfully fighting three battles with imps between saves almost every time. I am now 525 points away from Level 7. I need to take a short break.
10:07 p.m. Logging in.
10:52 p.m. Level 7. Another Level 1 spell. I am quitting for today.
Thursday, May 13, 2004
1:53 p.m. Logging in.
2:53 p.m. I had a few tough fights, but am now within 1,188 points of Level 8. I am going to make another run at Pravoka. I have enough G now to buy an ICE spell, and with five FIREs and three ICEs, I think I can take out nine pirates.
2:59 p.m. Arrived: Pravoka. I will buy an ICE spell, save it, then try the pirates.
3:08 p.m. Pirates destroyed me, but I think I can survive over here now. I will stick around and see what happens.
3:11 p.m. Yeehaw! Took down an ogre!!
3:24 p.m. Level 8. I am going to try the pirates again.
3:29 p.m. Almost won. I am going to buy gloves and a couple of potions, without saving, and try it again (should have done this before the last try).
4:08 p.m. I tried the fight about a dozen times, and got close every time, but couldn't ever win. I am going to get another spell; I think SLOW might be helpful. I went ahead and bought the gloves and saved that.
4:16 p.m. Bought SLOW and saved the game. I have taken down a party of three madponies, and a party of two ogres. I should be able to win this fight.
4:21 p.m. Nope, they smoked me. I need another level.
4:32 p.m. I am 588 points away from Level 9. I am logging off for now.
6:02 p.m. Logging in.
6:10 p.m. Level 9. Another Level 2 spell to use, and I purchased DARK and a couple of potions. Let's try it again.
6:16 p.m. Yes!! I don't know if it was Level 9, DARK, or a combination of the two, but the pirates weren't hitting very well at all. I now have the ship.
6:18 p.m. Hit a shark on the way back to Coneria, but I dispatched it with four shots of LIT. I am at Coneria now, where I will be leveling up on the sea enemies. LIT will make this very easy.
6:26 p.m. Two oddeyes and six sahags mopped up the floor with me.
6:36 p.m. I have 1000 G. I am going to try to sneak into ElfLand to buy a Copper Bracelet.
6:38 p.m. Got it. Back to Coneria.
6:41 p.m. Back in Coneria, I bought a SLEP spell and saved it.
6:55 p.m. Level 10. I am logging out for now.
10:32 p.m. Logging in.
10:41 p.m. Earned enough money and went down to ElfLand and bought LIT2 and a large dagger. Went back to Coneria and saved.
11:02 p.m. Level 11. Screenshots of levels are pretty pointless now. I am going to go get a FIR2 spell.
11:05 p.m. Got back to Coneria and saved. I am logging out for the night.
Friday, May 14, 2004
8:08 p.m. Logging in.
8:36 p.m. Level 12. I have also bought HOLD and ICE2.
9:04 p.m. Level 13. Saved at Coneria.
9:37 p.m. Leveled up some more and bought supplies. I now have 11 tents, 11 pures and 73 heals. I am logging out for now.
Saturday, May 15, 2004
9:18 a.m. Logging in.
9:35 a.m. Level 14. I am just raking in the G, and I can beat anything in the ElfLand area. I'm going to make a test run at the Marsh Cave.
9:37 a.m. Arrived: Marsh Cave.
9:38 a.m. Scorpions.
9:40 a.m. Stupid crawl paralyzed me, and two bones, a red bone and the crawl took their sweet time killing me.
9:42 a.m. Zombies and ghouls...what do you think happened?
9:45 a.m. Got to the third floor that time, but a crawl and some bones got me again. I think I can do it if I get lucky enough...
9:47 a.m. Party of zombies and ghouls, and FIR2 came out first!!
9:49 a.m. Another party of crawl, red bone, and two bones, but I beat them. Arrived at the wizards.
9:50 a.m. Ouch. Three wizards didn't take long. I want to try it again, though...
9:54 a.m. Arrived at the wizards again.
9:57 a.m. Can you believe it? On the second try I got only two. Both of them struck first and one missed. LIT2 came out and killed one. Next round, LIT2 again, didn't kill him, and he hit me for a lot of damage. Then I tried ICE2. Dead. The CROWN is mine! Now I just have to get out...
10:02 a.m. Out. On to ElfLand to save it. Let's see if I have the same luck with Astos...
10:05 a.m. Restored my magic at ElfLand. On to the Northwest Castle.
10:06 a.m. Arrived: Northwest Castle. Saving.
10:07 a.m. You gotta be kidding me. First round RUB was ineffective, and I decimated him. It wasn't even a challenge. Well, I guess I can get the KEY now...
10:12 a.m. In the Matoya Cave area, I hit a party of imps, and did 7 DMG the first round. I can beat the Marsh Cave, but I still can't consistently kill an imp in one hit. That's hilarious!
10:28 a.m. Bought a silver bracelet and FIR3 in Melmond and saved it, and sold all of the other treasure I plundered. The screen of Nerrick said "Drawing failed," so I wasn't able to get it. I am going to get Level 15 and I am going to quit for now.
10:31 a.m. Level 15. I saved it at Melmond. I didn't say this before, but the silver knife brings my Hit % above 32, therefore allowing double-hits. I am quitting for now.
1:46 p.m. Logging in. Just noticed that it wasn't just my screenshots that were messed up, but my savestates, too. I am forced to go back to right before going to Matoya's Cave. I hate it, but at least I didn't lose the Marsh Cave. I won't record anything more until I return to where I last recorded a log entry.
2:15 p.m. Back to Level 15. I realized that I didn't clear out the TOF key rooms in the first time through, so I did this time. As a result, I ended up getting Level 15 before getting to Melmond, and I had enough G to buy FIR3 and SLO2. I also grabbed the screenshot for Nerrick, and for the TNT, which I realized I was also missing. I went back and inserted them at the appropriate places.
2:35 p.m. Went up to the PNOP and defeated a party of four frost wolves.
2:40 p.m. Took down a tyro!! HOLD spell works very well against him. I paralyzed right at the beginning of the fight, and then I emptied my spell racks (ICE, FIR2, ICE2) on him. He never recovered. 3,387 EXP, baby!! Of course, I am out of magic, so I have to return to Pravoka now.
2:48 p.m. Wolves and grey wolves are running away from me.
2:51 p.m. Level 16.
2:51 p.m. Level 17.
3:11 p.m. Why haven't I been using FIR3?! What an idiot!
3:19 p.m. Level 18. I think I am going to try the Earth Cave.
3:26 p.m. Arrived: Earth Cave.
3:31 p.m. Wizards got me.
3:34 p.m. Beat the vampire in one hit. Got the RUBY.
3:41 p.m. Wizards!!
3:47 p.m. On the third floor, a coctrice stoned me on the first hit. Don't have enough time to try again. I am logging off for now.
Sunday, May 16, 2004
1:41 p.m. Logging in.
1:54 p.m. Killed the vampire with one shot of FIR3.
1:57 p.m. Level 19.
1:58 p.m. I HATE WIZARDS!!!
2:01 p.m. Wizards again. I pound into oblivion practically everything else here. Why do they have to have wizards here?!!
2:08 p.m. Coctrices. One of the other things I can't beat in here.
2:11 p.m. Three spectres and two geists made anything but short work of me.
2:15 p.m. Wizards. It would take a lot of levels to counter this. I just have to have a lucky run-through.
2:23 p.m. Two trolls got to come out first. All the luck is going against me here.
2:30 p.m. Images are in here, too? I thought I didn't hit them until the second time! A couple more tries, then I'm going to level up and get a LIT3 at Crescent Lake.
2:37 p.m. Vampire goes down in one hit again.
2:39 p.m. Geists and spectres.
2:45 p.m. Two spectres and two geists killed me from max. I am getting a LIT3 and another level.
2:52 p.m. Arrived: Crescent Lake.
2:56 p.m. Level 19 (again). Also bought LIT3. I'm going to make another run at the Earth Cave.
3:06 p.m. I was doing great, using LIT3 on any wizards I saw. Then FIR3 didn't kill the vampire in one hit, and he killed me.
3:14 p.m. One shot of FIR3 killed the Vampire.
3:20 p.m. Made it out! Saving...
3:27 p.m. Level 20.
3:27 p.m. Picked up the ROD.
3:31 p.m. Restored magic at Melmond and saved outside Earth Cave.
3:37 p.m. Lucky wizard survived the LIT3 and got a critical hit on me the next round before I could kill him.
3:42 p.m. Spectres and geists.
3:47 p.m. Removed stone plate.
3:51 p.m. Killed by images twenty steps from Lich.
3:58 p.m. Arrived at Lich. We'll see how this goes...
4:00 p.m. Oh yeah. Lich is dead.
4:15 p.m. A pede ran away from me.
4:18 p.m. Got the canoe.
4:33 p.m. Replenished my potions. Level 21. Saved at ElfLand, about to make a run toward Ordeal.
4:37 p.m. Saved it outside Ordeal. I am quitting for now.
9:41 p.m. Logging in.
9:43 p.m. First step in enemy-infested territory got me in a fight with four medusas, who stoned me.
9:53 p.m. Was doing good, then the nitemares killed me.
9:54 p.m. Five medusas struck first, three used GLANCE, and I ran away the next battle after another GLANCE. Talk about luck...
9:57 p.m. You can run from the mudgol.
9:59 p.m. Ran from three mancats.
10:00 p.m. Stinking nitemares.
10:11 p.m. Got the heal staff, then two sorcerers got me.
10:16 p.m. Seven red goyles and their FIR2 killed me.
10:18 p.m. Seven mummies and a WzMummy got to strike first and killed me.
10:20 p.m. Medusas again.
10:23 p.m. Five sorcerers?!
10:24 p.m. Three zombulls barely killed me.
10:27 p.m. Five sorcerers again. I remember having problems in this place, but not near this many sorcerer and medusa fights.
10:34 p.m. Sorcerers, mummies, medusas, in that order. Three more futile attempts.
10:39 p.m. Red goyles, nitemares, zombulls.
10:47 p.m. Got the TAIL. Here come the Zombie Dragons...
10:48 p.m. Do my eyes deceive me? I am out!!
10:51 p.m. Saved it at Melmond. I am logging out for now.
Tuesday, May 18, 2004
9:26 p.m. Logging in.
9:37 p.m. Saved it outside the Ice Cave. Let's give it a shot.
9:39 p.m. Five wraiths wiped me out.
9:41 p.m. Coctrices and mummies.
9:43 p.m. I have never had so much difficulty with undead!
9:47 p.m. Ran away from two sorcerers.
9:48 p.m. Undead again.
9:50 p.m. Coctrices. I'd forgotten how hard this place is!!
9:52 p.m. Ran away from three sorcerers.
9:55 p.m. Survived the spiked square. I'm not even going to attempt the Frost Dragons.
9:57 p.m. Three sorcerers did me in.
10:00 p.m. Three mages struck first, two rubs were ineffective, and I ran away.
10:02 p.m. Undead again.
10:06 p.m. And again.
10:12 p.m. Yet again.
10:16 p.m. Frost giant and a frost wolf. Wolf did FROST right off the bat, and the giant struck. I tried to run and was unsuccessful.
10:30 p.m. Two frost dragons. Need I say more? I think I can make it, though it may take a few more tries. I am quitting for now.
2:21 p.m. Logging in.
2:34 p.m. One sorcerer got lucky.
2:55 p.m. After several run-ins with mostly undead, I finally got past the spiked square.
2:56 p.m. Spoke to soon. Another lucky ONE sorcerer.
3:04 p.m. Ran away from two frost dragons.
3:06 p.m. Survived spike square.
3:07 p.m. Two sorcerers.
3:32 p.m. About a dozen more tries. Still unsuccessful. However, I doubt leveling up is going to help me that much. I will try a few more times and then maybe start leveling up. Right now, though, I am logging out.
5:18 p.m. Logging in.
5:51 p.m. After several futile attempts, I made it past the spiked square again.
5:54 p.m. Made it to the floor with the ice shield, and was killed by undead. I think I am going to get a few levels and come back.
6:09 p.m. Level 23.
6:19 p.m. Saved it at Crescent Lake, which is where I am leveling up. I am quitting for now.
12:08 a.m. Logging in. I am going to level up for a bit before going to bed.
12:24 a.m. Level 24.
12:45 a.m. Level 25. I will attempt the Ice Cave again tomorrow.
Wednesday, May 19, 2004
6:12 p.m. Logging in.
6:17 p.m. Arrived: Ice Cave.
6:22 p.m. Three mages. Coctrices are running away.

7:33 p.m. Survived spiked square, then immediately killed by a mage.
7:39 p.m. Five trips in which I didn't even make it to the spiked square. I finally made it to one and beat it, then I was killed by three wraiths. It's back to Crescent Lake for levelling up. But first, I need a shower. Be right back.
9:10 p.m. Had some other errands to run, but I am back.
9:27 p.m. Level 26. Saved at Crescent Lake.
9:54 p.m. Level 27.
10:17 p.m. Level 28. I am now above the recommended level for beating the game with a normal party (27). You'd think I could beat the Ice Cave now. I am logging out.
Sunday, May 23, 2004
10:01 p.m. Logging in. I am going to attempt the Ice Cave again.
10:11 p.m. Survived the spiked square. No problems yet...
10:13 p.m. Eye killed me.
10:21 p.m. Ditto.
10:28 p.m. The eye. Nothing else in here is killing me. I've only been paralyzed once in all of my previous trips.
10:42 p.m. I beat him! GLANCE ineffective first round, and then I came out first the next round and finished him off. How I just have to get out.
10:48 p.m. Made it out. Got paralyzed and almost died, but managed to get a FIR3 out just in time.
11:00 p.m. Got the airship and the class change. Saved at Coneria.

12:14 p.m. Level 31. Restored heals and saved at Coneria. I am quitting for now.
Monday, May 24, 2004
10:30 a.m. Logging in. I will get the CHIME, and at least attempt the Mirage Tower.
10:47 a.m. Got the CHIME and bought NUKE. Saved at Coneria.
10:53 a.m. Realized I forgot to buy a CatClaw, so I did.
10:54 a.m. Wow! I didn't save it before going to the Mirage Tower, and four ankylos toasted me in the desert.
11:01 a.m. Cleared out first floor of Mirage Tower, warped out, and saved it. Now for the second floor.
11:04 a.m. Level 32.
11:08 a.m. Cleared out second floor. I am going to sell the excess equipment and come back.
11:18 a.m. Defeated the blue dragon.
11:19 a.m. Five badmans (badmen?) knocked me out before I could use Defense.
11:25 a.m. Tripod is giving me problems. I have to log out for now.

3:06 p.m. Got the protective cape and got out.
3:14 p.m. Saved at Coneria. Bought STOP and ZAP! at Gaia. Bought SABR at Onrac and saved it there. Ready to go after Kraken.
3:27 p.m. Level 34.
3:32 p.m. Defeated Kraken. Saved at Onrac.
3:36 p.m. Saved outside Mirage Tower. I am quitting for now.
Tuesday, May 25, 2004
11:00 p.m. Logging in.
11:06 p.m. Done in by the blue dragon.
11:10 p.m. Blue dragon did 267 DMG!! I had been weakened a bit, so it killed me.
11:15 p.m. Blue dragon again. I have to use a NUKE on him.
11:22 p.m. Level 35. I am in the Floating Castle.
11:24 p.m. On the floor below Tiamit, I encountered and defeated a fighter. I didn't know you could face those in here.
11:29 p.m. Arrived at Tiamit. I didn't hit the WarMech, thankfully.
11:32 p.m. I beat him! Restored the power to the fourth and final orb, and warped out. Saved it right outside. I got it on the first try!
11:38 p.m. Didn't get hit in the desert. Flew back to Coneria, refilled my potions, and saved it. Then I flew up to the Temple of Fiends and saved it in the airship hovering over the TOF. I am going to go in and get Level 36, possibly Level 37. I won't try for the masamune just yet.
11:42 p.m. Level 36.
11:44 p.m. Got too greedy. Four gas dragons wiped me out.
11:47 p.m. Two worms gave me enough, five steps in. I am going to warp out and come back in, since I am not in that far.
11:51 p.m. Talk about a one in a million shot. A mage's RUB worked on me, even with a protective ring AND a protective cape.
11:55 p.m. I would have beaten two gas dragons, but one got a critical hit and did 207 DMG.
11:58 p.m. Defeated four gas dragons (used three NUKE spells), receiving over 16,000 EXP. I exited and saved at Coneria.
12:04 a.m. Level 37. Refilled potions and saved at Coneria. I will make a run at the masamune tomorrow. I am quitting for tonight.

1:50 p.m. Yes, I know I haven't played this in about three weeks. I just had to take a break from it (though I know I am so close to beating it). I finished the game I had on Final Fantasy X, and have started another season on Madden 2004 with my Broncos (yeah, baby). For all of you who are keeping up with this, I am sorry. I just wrote this to let you know that I am planning to play some more on it tonight or tomorrow. Stay tuned.
8:06 p.m. Logging in.
8:56 p.m. After several unsuccessful attempts to make it past the gas dragon floor, I have decided to level up until my HP is over 400.
9:04 p.m. Work summons me. I have to log out.

6:58 p.m. Logging in.
7:07 p.m. It happened again. I figured out why, though. It was because he cast XFER on me first. I haven't had a problem with him until now...
7:13 p.m. Made it that time. Used a NUKE, though.
7:27 p.m. Done in by four earths.
7:35 p.m. Past the evil gate. Beat the phantom without using a NUKE.
7:36 p.m. Frost wolves and frost giants got critical hits.
7:44 p.m. Past the evil gate. Phantom gave me no problems.
7:48 p.m. Zombie dragons pierced the triple-defense shield.
7:53 p.m. Past the evil gate. Phantom didn't even damage me.
7:57 p.m. Level 42.
8:00 p.m. Lich didn't even do NUKE until he was almost dead, and then it did 270 DMG and didn't kill me. Ready for the fire floor...
8:14 p.m. Kary was a cinch.
8:21 p.m. Level 43 right before Kraken.
8:23 p.m. Beat him! He did LIT2 for the first four rounds, and I was able to get my triple-defense shield up. He got one hit in later, but it didn't kill me. I am now on the masamune floor. I am going to run from everything I can (as I have already been doing).
8:26 p.m. Six sorcerers challenged me six steps away, and my life flashed before my eyes, but I was able to run away. I have the masamune!!
8:33 p.m. Got out. If I walk across the short floor right before the gas dragons, eight WARPS will do the rest. I restored all of my heal potions, sold my Cat Claw, and saved at Coneria. I'll level up to 50 before attempting Chaos.

12:51 p.m. Logging in.
12:56 p.m. Killed the phantom in one hit.
1:05 p.m. Masamune killed Lich in three hits, but he did get a shot of NUKE in for 294 DMG.
1:22 p.m. Got my triple-Defense shield up before Kraken hit me. He went down easily. I forgot to report Kary, but she obviously wasn't a problem.
1:26 p.m. Got to Tiamit.
1:29 p.m. FAST and the masamune made Tiamit go quickly.
1:31 p.m. Ready for Chaos...
1:38 p.m. Oh yeah! Lady luck was with me on the first trek through! She must have felt sorry for me after all of those tries at the masamune. CHAOS IS DEAD!!!!! I decided to go the NUKE route. I had all nine of my NUKEs, and I put up my triple-Defense shield, and then cast all nine of my NUKEs. I ran out, and then started wailing on him with the masamune. He cast CUR4 when I had only done about 200 DMG to him (I don't know why?!) and didn't cast it later. But it worked!!
