Yes, so long as we travel to familiar territory via the Airship, or otherwise don’t have to walk all that long due to it, we’ll never see another overworld monster bestiary unless we’re in a new region.
Anyways, on the Blackjack, you’ll learn how to control the Airship. FINALLY! It’s not unlike controlling a Chocobo and you can adjust altitude like you can in FFVII and VIII.
Anywho, we now need to return to the town of Narshe. You remember where that is, don’t you?
