I just started playing Shining Force III Scenario I (awesome game if you like all of the combat strategy) and I am wondering how critical it is to do everything right. I just checked out a SFIII web site and realized that I didn't find a lot of special items and I also didn't save Irene (so I'm one party member short). I'm almost through Chapter 2 right now. Without all this stuff, is my party doomed? So far, things have been pretty challenging, but everyone's still alive and well. I just wonder if it gets a lot harder as the story progresses. Thanks for any tips.
