Ys Books I and II - A cautionary tale of woe

I am not happy. I was still rejoicing over completing Book I when I got jammed into a groundhog day style death bug. This is a cautionary tale of woe.

The game is really fun, and has great music. I really enjoyed doing Book I, Book II carries straight on from the end of Book I. I walked to the first dungeon type place where there were 2 stationary enemies guarding a treasure chest. To defeat them you have to constantly walk into them, wait for your energy to recharge then walk into them again until they die. I killed one of them, and then saved my game. I killed the 2nd one and went on about my business of fighting goons, until I accidently died. Never mind I thought, and I reloaded my saved game.

The enemy I had killed had respawned, exactly where I was standing when I had saved my game, so I was stuck in an endless loop of death. It was then a little part of me died. While writing this I thought that maybe someone in internet land might have out down a password. Gamefaqs saved my soul. The password put me back about 10 minutes of game and one level higher than I had been, so its usable (though about 43,000 digits long)

The morale of my story is - save on more then one damn save slot, unless you want to be screwed over!
