Hi Lindus,

Thank you for that information.

I came across an article the other day, reprinted below, and wonder if this could be a solution? :lol: :lol:


Instead of the character-specific skills from the first game, you have a generic list of skills to work with, and as you fight and adventure around, you'll acquire class and skill points that let you learn more and more abilities, with a small amount of character exclusive abilities. In one way, this lets everyone learn the vital spells like Medica/2/All, status effect recovery, and revivals. Considering how challenging the game can be at times, having more people able to use these vital skills, the better. Those skills come in handy since there's no money in the game, nor shops to buy healing items. There's not even a need for Bio Spheres this time (they just restore everyone to full HP/MP), as walking into a save point restores you a la Final Fantasy X/X-2. Thus keeping MP high is essential since chances are your item inventory will be fairly small since you only find them off enemies and in hidden places. They do balance this pretty well, since if you use people not in battle in the camp screen, they can use their healing skills between encounters and actually recover MP.

A letter cost one penny to send in 1840 and costs 32 new pence now. Since 32 new pence equals 80 old pence this is an increase by a factor of 80. So

The Penny Black

Postby liam stephens on Thu Nov 23, 2006 4:41 pm

In 1840 Rowland Hill reformed the postal service by introducing postage stamps so that the sender paid for the postage. He understood that if people could be encouraged to exchange letters, postal charges could be greatly reduced.
Hill published his famous pamphlet, Post Office Reform: its Importance and Practicability, in 1837. He presented his proposal to the Government. Hill's plan was adopted in 1839.


The Penny Black
In May 1840, the world's first adhesive postage stamps were distributed. With an elegant engraving of the young Queen Victoria, the Penny Black was an immediate success. Refinements, such as perforations to ease the separating of the stamps, would be instituted in later.


There is also a song relating to that era which is probably known to our American friends, (and made famous by Lonnie Donegan), which goes:


"In 1814 we took a little trip
Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip."
