So I just finished replaying FF6 on SNES emulator, which I've loved to death since I was a kid, but I just noticed something odd that I never noticed before.
It seems to me that, after you kill Kefka and escape the tower, when you're flying around while the credits roll there seems to be entirely too much green (grass and trees and stuff). I really don't think just killing Kefka is going to suddenly make grass and trees grow all over the place, and even when the airship hovers over a couple of the towns they mostly still look pretty barren. Am I the only one who ever noticed this? Any thoughts on this?
I not too long ago finished FF6 so I believe I can provide a good answer albeit a short one.
My thoughts are that it's all symbolic. The destruction of such a nihilistic antagonist after what the world literally went through with him, the party's separation and reunion, and pretty much all that led up to the killing blow to Kefka is a means towards a very well-deserved state of peace.
In a figurative sense, the soil has become more fertile, the skies have become less cloudy and don't appear foreboding, etc etc.
ShroudedTraveler: I wouldn't want them in it (I have no love for them, whatsoever), they were just the first 'have a friend' with them character I thought of. Probably because of Smash Ultimate.

Ryngar Acia: I unironically hope they're Asha and Pepelogoo.

Enkeria: Would hope for O.D. for the 3rd playable character. But would be fine as the main character in the sequel too.

XombieMike: It's confirmed to be a cross over character, so not OD

Redogan: Sheesh. Old habits die hard. I jumped on here to read up about the 3rd playable character and instinctively looked around and clicked on a wall mac.

XombieMike: There are a few secrets here

Time 4 Tea: I really like this forum... I just wish it was a bit more active. Perhaps we need a Ritual of the Night 2 to liven things up?

XombieMike: Thanks. I think this place still serves a good purpose for keeping organized linkable info. Most discussions happen on Discord these days.

Enkeria: Ritual of the Night 2 is a thing that will happen. Yes.

ShroudedTraveler: This is still the primary place I look at for info/updates. Occasionally, I lurk. The discord has too many discussions for me and seems super tight knit, so I typically just leave it muted since I won't check it enough to really break in.

ShroudedTraveler: And by that I mean, there seem to be regulars and most people are aware of each other, so the conversations move too quickly for me to reasonably keep up with how rarely I check in

XombieMike: The announcements channel is good on Discord. We will post updates here too, though.

XombieMike: The recent Journey update has been neglected here.
