FF10 and cryptology silliness

The opening to FF10 has a very Chronicles of Amber feel to it, looking back and telling the story of how we got here on the eve of some cataclysimic strugle.

Any they worked in the crystal theme to the second song in the game! That's so friggin cool! :)

Oh god, the voices suck however. Tidus's is okay, but all the secondary characters i've heard in the first few minutes have been high pitched and scratchy and annoying =P

Okay, Auron sounds okay too. It's just either all the secondary characters, or only when they try to sound female or young =P

Tiercel warned me that i should get a "Al Behdu Primer" FAQ if i wanted to make sure not to miss anything in the game. In the process of downloading said FAQs i noticed that the Al Behdu "language" is just a cypher, so when i got to the first message i decided to see if i could decrypt it, just using the one message and standard techniques :)

Hopefully finding the primers in game will not only "teach" me the cypher, it will automagically translate the letters i've "learned" for me, because translating every message by hand would be a real pain =P

Edit:

Ack! There was more to that message! I should have kept pressing the button more :)
