As a brainwashed follower of the Yahtzee School of Game Appreciation, I still fail to understand that. What FF character?


When the GK column is first disguised as siege and heavies by Jack's foolamancy in the beginning of book 2, Jack is himself sporting an illusory outfit similar to the Dragoon class from the old FFs.

Wait...here: http://www.ffcompendium.com/h/jobs/dragoon.shtml

But, I do not see the link between the FF costume and that theory...

If Wanda turns, the Decrypted turn with her. Now, the RCC2 won't LIKE to ally with Wanda, but there's no doubt that on paper, they'd roll GK.

Esp. if Wanda can Decrypt Dwagons, which we must assume.

It won't happen, anyway.

In one of the FF games, Kain, a Dragoon is brainwashed.

Why would he promote Parson for that? I can just see him yelling that Parson's supposed to be the perfect warlord.


Because it would be Wanda and Ansom's fault, losing a ton of dwagons right now.

BTW, awesome name. Nice pun.


Thanks!

BlandCorp, I think others have explained the Kain thing since the time of my earlier post. I must confess I never played the game, either, but there were some pretty good explanations in the reactions thread that accompanied the artwork. It sounded pretty interesting to me, as it pertains to a Jack betrayal!

And Stanley told Parson that he should just shut up, it's 100% Ansoms plan. So almost certainly he will blame Parson if it goes wrong. That's Stanley.

    -Book 2 Page 4 is the update everyone is talking about.

    -This is the panel where Jack looks like Kain and/or a dragoon from Final Fantasy.

    -Doing a search of Kain in the reaction thread for this comic will give you some insight which people have already discussed about the whole Jack looking like Kain/Betrayer thing and what that could mean.

    -More info on this particular character can be found here

:lol: This place is great, all you need to do is ask and answers will be enough to bury you.

Okay, reading just a bit about the character, yeah I can see why the Jack turning theory has legs. Pity though, I kinda hope he'll be still on GK's side, come battle's end.
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.

I don't think Jack will turn. There is no evidence at all to Jack's loyalty level, saying that he will turn if given a better option is nothing but speculation. Jack's love for Jillian is far from assured. Jack himself never said anything, only Jillian did.

That's it. All we have on Jack and Jillian's relationship. Jillian could have misinterpreted him, a 'little crush' might have been it. I know all the stuff about the Jack and Jill going up a hill, but that could have simply been a reference to Jillian fixing Jack's 'broken crown', which happened upon him seeing someone from Faq he liked, as opposed to Wanda, who was a b**** even then

I don't expect Jack to turn to Faq either, but I'm beginning to see why some people suspect he will. Not saying I agree with that assessment. There's one scenario I've mentioned in which, based on what we've just found out about Jack, he'll switch sides. Not a likely scenario though.

Oh, and he mentions in this book that he has an affliction shared by Wanda. Heavily implied to be a fancy for Jillian.

So what do you make of Jack's lines just after he betrays Jillian, helping Stanley escape
"love is the wisdom of the fool and folly of the wise"... he seemed to REALLY lament what he had to do there

Right. Even the Wiki points out Jack seems to have an unusually high loyalty to Stanley. If he was going to turn, he would have done it at the Pass.

Who's sane here?

Jillian wants Wanda/Ansom/to be independent/to be dominated/Vinny/kill Stanley?/etc.
Ansom is dominated to the point where he has to make nice to someone he despises (Stanley).
Stanley has deep psychological issues from being short/non-royal/a moron.
Slately can't see past his Royal ideas.
Don... we have no idea WHAT he's planning.
Parson can't decide if he wants to conquer the world or not.
