Hi all!

I'm new to speedrunning and have been having a heck of a time finding a good game to start with. My first crack was Final Fantasy (NES) and I grinded that for 30ish hours. I've got the first 45ish minutes down pat but that's only about 1/4 of the game. I want to continue with it but I need something different with less overall time to complete a run.
I loved this game as a kid and I think I would like to have a go at it. My question is about categories. I've always been a completionist at heart so I was wondering about an All Faces category...
My thought is collect all faces at least once for each level including secret areas. The reason I say at least once is because after you leave the secret area in a level all the faces respawn.
Anyways been watching speedruns for a couple years now and am looking forward to setting my first time!


If you are into it, that's cool, but I guess agreeing on what is all faces means is the hardest part.
- I think I agree with your approach where you only collect a face just once even though it respawns. going all the way back to the beginning will be so painful.
- Never use a bag as a shortcut, in secret bags with two exits always come back out the bag you came in.
- Don't recollect a face you already collected. (Haven't tested that yet)
- Would y'all want to hit all the professor faces in the sky for the coin it spawns?
- Lastly there are a few faces I've never figured out how to acquire, like in 1-3 and I think some in world 4-1. Maybe y'all know, and I'm just a dummy.
