The Comedy of the Sages book
One thing the player ought to have noticed while playing through the Tragedy of the Entity is that Chrono Trigger has been extremely linear. The key aspect of Chrono Trigger that separates it from typical JPRGs is that the difference between halves is much more marked than other JRPGs. The Geno Dome is the third largest dungeon in the game and the largest of the optional quests, except for the Black Omen. This dungeon also highlights the one systemic problem with the Comedy of the Sages. There are 53 enemies in the Geno Dome, far more than any Comedy dungeon except the Black Omen. The Black Omen is a final dungeon in the mode of most JRPG final dungeons: it has lots of tough enemies, a few useful end-game items, a handful of bosses, save points aplenty, and an escape route.
