Standing for Straight character challenge. after beating FFT i found this on game faqs so i decided to give it a try.it seems really challenging so i have to give it a go. here are the rules of competition.
>>1. Party must consist of 5 Characters, all set to the same job class.
Characters must attain Job before Dorter Trade City, and remain in
>>2. Characters can not use any other abilities of any other class at all.
Any Support, Movement, and Reaction skills must come from their own
In a Squire challenge, I recommend Ramza to be treated as if he were
a regular Squire (ie. Ignore benefits not given to other Squires,
like his Guts ability and extra equips) GS'ing Ramz. into a normal
Squire may be the best solution. Again, this is nothing more than a
>>3. Special Characters are not allowed, as their enhanced growth can
dilute the challenge.
>>4. High leveling up is not allowed either. The following Level Caps have
been set as maximums for all job classes:
-Chapter 1: 20
-Chapter 2: 35
-Chapter 3: 50
-Chapter 4: 70 - Before Murond Death City
However, remember to use your judgement. These levels shouldn't be
approached with most classes. The stronger your class, the lower your
levels should accordingly be. Also, because sqpat17 pointed it out,
if you take on Mime (and perhaps Calculator), and go _over_ the level
cap just to get to the class, don't worry about it and carry on, of
course don't level up after that until you're below the cap.
>>5. Again, you may not use Gained JP Up, Secret Hunt, Move-Find Item, etc.
unless your character naturally has it in their class. This is the
same as rule #2, but I need to state it twice because this is the most
>>6. Guest Characters can become whatever you wish. A strong Algus and
Delita are pretty much required to beat early battles for many
classes. Guest Characters may be stripped of their equipment.
>>7. Monsters can NOT be recruited. If a Human is recruited through
Invite, he may be stripped of equipment and then kicked out. Any
Special Character can also be stripped and then removed.
>>8. If you have a problem in the game (Wiegraf, Balk II) use your better
judgement. Depending on how much of a purist you are, judge whether
to give yourself some leniency for a battle or not. To this date,
it has proven possible to win any fight with just about any class,
but anyone who thinks they're superior to you for completing this
fight without any changes is an arse.
>>9. Later in the game, at Chapter 4, you may use a full party of Special
Characters in a few random battles, just for the sake of your sanity.
This applies mostly to people with very tedious jobs like Summoners,
Mediators, and Bard/Dancers. Special Characters may NEVER be used in
Story Battles or in the Deep Dungeon. [Mucho Gracias Dr Goofy]
>>10. You may not Dupe Weapons or use the Level Up/Down cheat. Neither of
these is technically possible if you stick to the challenge, but it
should be said anyway. [Thanks to Cyrus Viruz for pointing this out]
>>11. At no time may Ramza or any other character change the Brave or
Faith of any character unless this ability comes from the selected
Job Class (in other words, only Mediator).
>>12. You may not rise over the level cap to get better weapons from
boxilized enemies and then level down to finish under the cap. Shame
on you if you say you didn't but really did. You're going to hell,
>>13. Gameshark Rules: Gamesharks can be used in the following scenarios:
A)The Dancer SCC: You may use the GS to create a team of 5 Dancers,
instead of using Ramza as a Bard. I'm a GS idiot, so don't ask
me about the codes for this.
B)Easy Advancement: Too lazy to get to Bard, Dancer, or Mime? You
may use the GS to open up any classes instead.
C)Not Benefitial: You may use GS codes which make the game or the
SCC more difficult, such as using the Hard Mode code.
D)GS Classes: While not all of them will present the same challenge
as the regular set, I'm now allowing GS class SCCs. I may even begin
to take some strategies for this...
>>14. Side Quests: This arguement is still in development. Some say that
if a class can make use of the Chapter 4 side quest, they should
use it: Others think it's not staying true to the SCC if they do
go through it. In truth, only Chemists and Thieves can really benefit
from it. Personally, I don't see a problem with it... but there are
a lot of purists out there...
>>15. If you don't like the regulations placed on the SCC, then do it your
>>16. The sixteenth rule of the Straight Character challenge is... don't
ack now this could be no fun....depends on the class really ...well i rolled and with my luck BOOM squire. Imagine beating velious with 5 squires...ack i'd rather not. Newho if anyone wants to join me go ahead and i can roll you a number and a class. Ill try to keep an update on my progress..lol this should be entertaining.
