    Yeah, a team made up of six of them would almost certainly be able to trounce any one character out there. ;)

    And as for their peak, just like with other FF characters, I'm not going to judge them as though some rabid, completist lunatic (like myself) spent a few dozen extra hours leveling them all up to lvl. 99 and made sure every character knows every spell.

    For example, even though it's possible for Sabin to learn every spell in that game, I won't be judging him like that. He's a melee fighter, first and foremost, and that's what he'll be here as far as I'm concerned. He'll have his blitzes, and yes, even some knowledge of spells (You'd have to go out of your way in that game for one of those characters to not learn any magic.), but the magical gurus in that game are Terra, Celes and Strago, so they'll be judged as magicians primarly.

    Savvy?

    EDIT: Oh, there's definitely some rose tinting on Maxle's glasses there. ;) If you'll notice, FF6 is the only FF game without a playable character on the Power List. Just the final boss. And there's good reasoning behind that.

    Not saying they suck, or anything like that, though.

    FFVI Characters should provide great backfields and great trumping options, IMO. Great game, but what made it so great was that no single character was uber awesome.

    Edit: duh you were talking about FFVI, not the draft :p I started it once, never got all the way through though so I'm a little lacking in that department.

    I much prefer these drafts with huge versatility in powers and abilities. Comic book used to be my fave but I think this'll take top spot once it's running correctly.

    running correctly is key.
    can we use a game genie in this draft?
