W Wind > Gale
Merton > Melton (or Melt)
Safe > Shield
Bersk > Enrage
Rflect > Wall
Gale doesn't have the same impact as Tornado...and a similar monster spell was named Tornado in FF4, I believe.
Merton sounds pretty cool. I didn't realize it was an L/R swap for the Japanese spell.
Shield I might do. I would prefer Protect, but the only way I can think to shorten that is Protct or Prtect and neither one works for me.
As far as the spells go, I'm trying to keep them within the Final Fantasy naming structure where I can. That's not always going to work, but...
Fight > Attack
Morph > Trance
I like Attack! I'll probably do that. Trance, though...I like the way Morph matches what Terra actually does better than Trance.
Another change would be to make a consistent truncation of the word "level". It seems to me that the original developers were aiming for "LV", but it's also spelled "L." and "L", as in "L80 Magic" or "L.5 Doom".
I agree completely, and I forgot about the monster names when I did that. So now it's the "L5Doom" spell and the "L80 Magic" monster.
And as far as the Pearl/Holy thing goes, vivify had a really good idea with the "Light-elemental" descriptions. But that works better with Holy than with Pearl, so I'm probably going that way.
Thanks everyone for your input!
