Reminder that the only people who hate based Marche are losers, cripples and girls with colored hair. They can't accept reality and wants to stay in their safe hugbox and he ain't having any of that.
Is FFTA like FFT in the sense that your team becomes insanely overpowered before you're halfway through and you spend half of the game running around and OHKOing enemies without breaking a sweat?
If they lived in the game for years, would that translate to "real world' time? If they used the book to go back home, would they have been missing for all those years or would they have picked up where they left off?
They where basically stuck in a world that was mostly made from a kid that had issues and was also extremely emotional. Beyond that one of the first missions in the game has you killing three zombies that are named after bullies that hurt Mewt in the normal world implying that it was possible killing monsters was also actually killing people in the real world.
Marche was probably right but didn't really have the best and complete justification for his actions as he was basically the one breaking the world in half to revert it
>one of the first missions in the game has you killing three zombies that are named after bullies that hurt Mewt
That mission only becomes available after you beat the game and become able to return to the real world, meaning those weren't the bullies at all.
it's related in the sense that Mewt grew up to be a school teacher at Luso's school, and the Grand Grimoire happens to be in the library.
And it's apparently a different grimoire from what Mewt had, as Mewt's transformed St Ivalice into a fascimile of the Ivalice world, while Luso's transports him directly to it.
But I can assume that Luso is from St Ivalice too because his elbow shields have the same St Ivalice emblem that Marche's knee shields have.
Literally the only reason for why Marche is not a villain protagonist is because at the very end of the game Lilim outright says that the entire thing is an illusion instead of an actual alternate reality. This merely upgrades him to "accidentaly right".
Also, Ivalice in general was a lot more unstable and deadly than the town of St. Ivalice. St. Ivalice was a nice, normal small town, but in the world of Ivalice, Marche had to become a child soldier just to survive.
I don't fault Doned for not wanting to go back (let's be honest, his life really fucking sucked in St. Ivalice), but in general, everyone else would have been much better off if they hadn't opened that magic book.
Not that guy, but I started another playthrough recently. One of the very first missions, the one where you protect the nu mou sage npc from 2 ice flans and 3 zombies, has the bullies names as those 3 zombies.
You get pretty OP by the end but learning abilities in the Advance games are gated by the fact that abilities are attached to weapons and have to be "mastered" by equipping that weapon for long enough, and since weapons are available based on your progression in the story/side missions it's a bit harder to break. You can grind early on for an ability called "steal ability" and then steal the "steal weapon" ability in a certain mission to circumvent that system but it's so obtuse you'd never figure it out on a first play through.
