Sounds kinda crappy but how would you even have [S] after only playing 2 weeks...? This story sounds like BS to me. That is all.
It's not even that difficult? Once you hit 20 you head to Jeuno, and you can hit a maw to transfer to the past. You can do a lot in 2 weeks these days. Hell I got PUP from 13 to 75 in a month and a half. That would have been unheard of years ago, but now this game has become much easier.
