I'm Tallulah Graves, and this is my favorite forum on the internet. I like it so much I've made not one but TWO threads in it! "But Tallulah," you ask with the confused innocence of a child, "you're new, and you already have one LP! Why would you make another so soon?" Well now, hypothetical forum member, that's a very good question. The answer is simple: because every click through Ristorante Amore is like a gigantic needle to the base of my spine. I'm sure it does in fact get better, but if I want to make it through I'm going to need a safe place I can retreat to every once in a while. Monster Rancher 2 is that place. So what is Monster Rancher 2? tl;dr: It's a stat-based monster raising simulator. Essentially, it's the bastard lovechild of Pokemon and Princess Maker. How could we say no? Now before we begin, we need two things: 1.) A name and gender for our glorious rancher. It must be a good name, a strong name; we intend to rise to the top of the breeder ranks, after all. 2.) A vote on the CD to be used to make a monster. Monsters are generated through the use of real-life CDs though a magical process I never cared enough to decipher. Your choices are: Persona 2: Innocent Sin, Clock Tower, Final Fantasy IX or Harvest Moon: Back to Nature. This LP will probably be updated sporadically in-between RA updates, unless I get engrossed in MR2. I am rather addicted to watching numbers go up. And there had better not be a Monster Rancher 2 LP already. I checked the list and everything.
