Fort Condor

When you pass through the caves after getting past the midgar golem, you can head south to Fort Condor. There is an item and a materia shop here, but they won't sell you anything until you talk to the guy sitting at the table just below them. Chat him up, agree to fight against the Shinra, and you should be able to shop there. At first they only have basic stuff, but their wares level up as the game progresses. Be sure to come back to Fort Condor as often as you can so you can help them fight the Shinra. It's kinda remeniscent of FF Tactics, but... more, I dunno... brain-dead, maybe? I've found you can get some decent items this way, so it can be worth it.

The reason they ask for Gil is so they can fight any battles you're not around for. In general, you'll want to leave them with a minimun of 18,000 Gil (there are 6 battles you can't be here for), plus three thousand Gil for any battles you're planning to miss. Take a look at the rewards for each battle below, and decide if it's worth it to come all the way back and fight. Or if you just like this mini-game, that's cool too I guess.

You win if there are no enemies on the screen at the same time as you. And you can place units a little below your lowest unit when the battle is actively taking place. So this means there are two basic strategies here. First, you can just place one cheap unit, then start the battle. Then turn the battle speed to it's lowest and place another cheap unit as low as you can. Repeat until you can place units next to the enemies as they appear. Pick the appropriate unit for whatever enemy is here. You can usually win after killing off three or four units at most. If you want to play with a more generic style...

General strategy: Place your guys pretty much right at the lower-edge line. Use two catipults in the middle, and one on each side. Have a shooter, an attacker, a defender, and a repairer at each catipult. When you get access to upgraded catipults, use those instead. Vary which unit attacks the enemy based on the type of enemy. If it's a beast, use an attacker. If it's a human, use a defender. For Wyverns, use Shooters. Have the repairers heal in between skirmishes. Stay close to the catipult lines.
