Author's comments and explanations:

In this epic RPG, you have to fight an evil religion that tries to take over the world. Normally, this quest would require hours upon hours before you could hope to conquer evil and its many spawns. Put thanks to luck manipulation, this quest can be completed under five hours.

This submission is my very first one. Boy was that hard! It took me over a year to complete it. Mainly because is always found ways to make the movie shorter. Here are just a couple I found over time

An entertainment trade-off I took was finding Bleu, the best magician from BOF I. Her high level is more than sufficient to help my crew (with warp, mainly), which doesn't level up.

Another was showing all dragon powers and other magic spells (hence using bomb against Deatheavn)

Inside the Sky Cave, I though I found a glitch (look at my progress in the appropriate thread). However, its happening looks sporadic...

And just so you know : the last battle frame is 1031901. The rest is just showing the best ending

Baxter: This longest TAS to date had a good viewer response. Accepting for publication.
