When you're back on the world map, head west to walk around the mountains, and then walk north until you reach a small town with a rocket. They called it Rocket Town due to lack of inspiration.. or perhaps because it does kinda suit the town.

The first two houses are the weapon shop (left) and the Inn (right). The Weapon store also sells some accessories and Gold Armlets should you want some. The house on the very left of the town holds nothing in particular. The house with the old man standing in front of it is the Item Shop. First talk to the old man several times and look at the rocket with him. He'll give you the Yoshiyuki, a special sword for Cloud. It only has 2 slots, but it can be extremely powerful.  The thing is, for every party member KO, the sword powers up. If one character is KO it deals 2x the normal damage, and if 2 characters are KO'd it deals 3x times the normal damage. There will be a good use for this sword later.

The Item shop also sells the Barrier, Exit and Time Materia. I personally wouldn't buy Barrier if you already have the Big Guard enemy skill. Exit is optional too as far as I'm concerned, but it might be useful if you escape often. Time is useful, if you haven't got it already.

Go back outside and enter the house all the way to the right. In the back you can find a Power Source in a chest. Now enter the remaining house at the upper part of town. You can find a Drill Arm in the chest. Enter the back- yard through the other door. What's that.. a plane? A woman called Shera spoils the fun and tells you to speak with the Captain if you want to borrow it.

(Fort Condor Note 8:)
Before doing anything else, exit the Town once you've checked out the Tiny Bronco in the backyard. It's a LOONG trip back, but the reward is decent: You'll get the 'Super Ball' which is actually the Superball, a non-slot high power weapon for Yuffie. Of course, you have to fight another battle for this, duh, nothing comes for free!

The Captain is busy in his rocket, so head to it, and climb it. After speaking with him, go back to the town, and into Cid's house (with the Tiny Bronco). A bunch of scenes will happen. Go back outside and you'll see Rufus and Cid talking.. after which Shera will call you back inside. Go to the backyard and you'll have to fight .. fat ass Palmer.

Palmer is only a nuisance standing between you and the Tiny Bronco, so quickly kick his big butt to get him out of the way.

|Name: Palmer (Level: 38)                  |Nullifies: Gravity                 |
|HP: 6000                                  |-----------------------------------|
|MP: 240                                   |Status Effect Weaknesses:          |
|Exp: 1800                                 |Poison, Stop, Slow, Paralyzed,     |
|AP: 98                                    |Darkness                           |
|Gil: 5000                                 |                                   |
|Drops: Edincoat(100%)                     |                                   |
|Steal: ---                                '-----------------------------------|
|Attacks: Mako Gun(Ice2 or Bolt2 or Fire2) [1 Enemy, Mag Atk, Cost=22MP, either|
|Ice, Lightning, Fire Element, 472.5 Base Damage]                              |
|Strategy: Palmer's a breeze compared to the other bosses you've fought lately.|
|He's only got his Mako Gun that does around 475 damage. Start with Big Guard  |
|to cut this in half, then summon Choco-Mog to freeze him for a large amount of|
|the battle. Paralyzing Limits also work well. Then pound away with basically  |
|anything. Go ahead and poison him, though it doesn't really matter much. Enjoy|
|the funny ending of the battle ;)                                             |

Now the Tiny Bronco suddenly starts flying.. what the hell? So let just climb up too.. watch the scene and afterwards welcome Cid to the party. He's one of the best characters in the game, in my opinion. You can now do many optional things, as described in the following section.

Buy Barrier materia, if you're going for a true perfect game or want to get Master Magic materia without fighting Emerald Weapon. (leveling up all materias to make a master materia is a pain. but I do it every single game--for 3 characters)
