Grandad, do I really smell like fish?

And so we now start the second half of the epic. This time Celes is our starting heroine instead of Terra. She awakens to find that Cid and her are the only survivors in this mess.
Not only does she awaken, but she's been asleep for over a year! Well, perhaps not asleep. More like a death-defying coma.
Looks like the world is pretty damn screwed up. Looks like Cid's Barry Manilow addiction finally came back to bite him in the ass...
Cid isn't doing very well himself either. But thankfully Celes is here to nurse him back to health like a good obedient Japanese grand-daughter. Time to go fishing!
It's now up to you whether your new grandpa Cid lives or dies. In all honesty, it won't affect the outcome of the game, and I sometimes like to kill him off just cause the cutscenes are more dramatic. But, I'm assuming here that you are a kind, loving person (and probably making an ass of myself in the process) and that you want to save your beloved grandpa. In that case, I'll tell you the easiest way to do it. When you walk out and see fish swimming around, about 3/4 of the time you will see a fish swimming a LOT faster than the others. ONLY capture those fish, and no others.
You can tell you have the right fish by going to the rare items menu. If it says "A yummy fish" you've got it right. If it doesn't say that, committ seppuku you failure, for you have ashamed your family for seven and a half generations.
Then take your fish to old gramps and feed it to him. He'll make some annoying sounds as he's eating. Then go back and fish again. If you don't see any fast swimming fish, go and talk to Cid and go look again. His health will slowly deteriorate by doing this, but it will increase by large amounts by feeding him yummy fish. The ratio of health degradation to health "bettering" appears to be somewhere around 1:e or 1:3, in case you're interested.
Oddly enough, you can spend all the time you want fighting and Cid's health will never decrease. It isn't worth it to fight on this continent (yet) however, since you only get like 5 experience points per battle. Later on, however, you can steal some megaelixirs from these guys...
As Cid's health starts to improve, his sayings will change. If you get this one, that means you're on the right path.
Depending on your luck, it will take anywhere between 5 and 15 minutes to nurse this guy back to health (he dies a lot quicker, in case you're intersted). Once Cid's gotten all healthy and stuff, he decides to show you his "secret".
It's a raft! Yay! Time to leave the old man behind and make something for yourself in this cruel, cruel world.
I love mode 7.
You'll end up by the town of Albrook. Make sure to equip yourself with the best stuff you have before heading out. The enemies are quite a bit tougher now. I usually put myself in the backrow and equip a morning star. It's basically as powerful as the break blade, but you can be in the back row and thus only take half damage. This helps considering you're still fighting alone.
The town, as you can see, is looking pretty beat up. There really isn't a hell of a lot to do here. There is nothing new to buy in any of the shops. The only thing to do now is to talk to the villagers and learn about what Kefka has done to the world.
Seems like he's having fun, anyway.
Grammar errors! Noooooooooooooo!
Gotta love politically correct translations.
So where to go now? Well, that's pretty much up to you in this world. The World of Ruin offers just about the most freedom of choice of any Final Fantasy game outside of perhaps Final Fantasy II. There are only a few things you have to do, but there are a wealth of options. If you want to do everything, then just keep following this walkthrough, cause I ain't leaving a single thing out.
