Sweet! Thanks Cheap One. I'm so excited taht I put a EO III Bartender Wallpaper up on my desktop and put together the 130 Wallpapers I found at Atlus's EO I, II, & III sites into a screensaver. I'm also scared, because I've read more daunting reports of EO's difficulty curve. Then again, I'm from the Nintendo generation, and like you; I have been trained in level grinding and exploring EVERY corner, nook, and cranny of a game.
No matter where you go, there you are.
