    I mean, I know it's a running gag amongst G1 fans, but seriously: What kind of shit did Starscream have on Megatron that let him get away with it? Or was Starscream the 'special' little brother of Megatron's wife that he had to keep around to keep her happy?

    It looks like I'm going to need to do some real work if I want to go out and purchase half the stuff I want to get before the end of the year.

    This is why you should reinvent yourself as Jack-of-None: MASTER OF ALL TRADES!

    By which I mean sink a few levels in Red Mage.

    If there's one thing I learned from Pokemon Emerald and Megaman Battle Network 2, it's that the quickest way to get media attention is to challenge an enthusiastic young reporter for a major network to a duel during a live broadcast.

    I prefer my magic on the Blue side, rather than the Red.

    Though perhaps Green magic is best of all.

    Fun, but 90% impractical. Usually a couple of cool tricks you can't get any other way though.

    "Red Magic" isn't really a category though, more a philosophy on life of trying to become a minmaxing expert in every field. Like how Bards can do a little of everything, only better because Red Mages are actually any use whatsoever outside of a career in entertainment.

    Though perhaps Green magic is best of all.
    Status effects? Situationally handy as a speciality... But it's a heck of a lot easier to find non-combat uses for a Fireball than it is a paralysis spell, and it lacks the versatility of a true focus on utility spells.

    I like the idea that Blue Magic represents, namely that you are defined by what you experience. Also, unique tricks that likely don't have (ready) counters is a good thing.

    I was actually thinking Time Magic (as that was Green in FF 12 if I remember correctly).

    Stealing your opponents skills is always a fun concept.

    Haste and Slow fit into 12's Green, but it's pretty much the status effect category.

    The Red/Time combo from five is of course one of the best combos in the entire series: Doublecast [Quick{Meteor, Meteor}, Quick{Meteor, Meteor}] Especially brutal when targeting a single opponent who is the only valid target for all sixteen hits.

    ...Though Neo-Exdeath has four damageable components and six randomized zones the meteors might strike, so in that case teaching a Mime Red, Time and Summon so you can use Doublecast [Quick{Bahamut, Bahamut}, Quick{Bahamut, Bahamut}] is vastly more reliable for raw damage.

    Burns through MP like a Dickens of course, but splurging an absurdly excessive barrage of raw magical power in one turn is the entire point.

    Grey in FF5, IIRC. They were just "Time Mages" in Tactics.

    Yes, my Enemies are my weapons. I have no idea if you meant Xanatos style manipulation or just physically throwing them at one another, but either option or both at once is fine by me.

    If you had the ability to channel the abilities of everyone whose Month and Day of birth was the same as yours, what would happen?
