III. Introduction
---------------------

Hello all and welcome to my item guide for The Tower of Druaga, a great game by
Namco. Due to the randomness of the items, some of which are necessary, and the
lack of hints to help you find them, this game was overlooked for the greatness
it is. I've recently dug up my old copy of Namco Museum Volume 3 and while
looking for a list to help me with the items, I became very disappointed. I was
not able to find a full list, only incomplete lists which left out certain
items (either because they were not know or because they are bad for you to
get. I didn't like that and decided to change that. So here it is, a full guide
to the items of The Tower of Druaga.

IV. Permissions
---------------------

Here is a list of all the sites that currently have permission to put this FAQ
on their site. If you have asked for permission and your name is not on the
list, chances are it's because I haven't created a new version. When I create a
new version of the document I will be sure to include the URL of your site.
Please don't e-mail me saying you got permission but it's not on here. I ask
this to prevent people from lying and getting permission without asking. Think
about it. In that e-mail that you sent saying your site isn't on here you could
have asked me and gotten permission. You just wasted an e-mail. Besides I keep
a close record of who has asked and who hasn't. Actually, unless your site has
a reputation of ripping off people's walkthroughs then I really have no reason
to deny permission. But please, just ask.

Note that the latest version of this and all my other guides will always be
available on GameFAQs.

V. Anti-Permissions
---------------------

This is a list of sites that I never have and never will give permission to,
no matter how nicely they ask. These sites have a strong reputation of stealing
guides from other authors and even going so far as to modify them to add
themselves to permissions lists or remove themselves from anti-permissions
lists. If you are reading this guide on one of the sites listed below know that
you are reading an unauthorized and illegally obtained copy, and that any

VII. FAQ
---------------------

Currently, there are no questions. If you have any questions about the game,
just shoot me an e-mail at shaun.hamman@gmail.com. Let's get some content for
this area, eh?

---------------------
VIII. Example Item
---------------------

Okay, the layout here is pretty simple. A sample is below. Six of the floors
have special areas you must walk over. You're going to get some beautiful ASCII
maps from me on those! Anywho, if the walls on my map don't match the walls on
yours, that's okay. The lines and circles are areas you can walk on while white
space is walls. It's not the walls that matter, it's the locations. A map
applies to the item located directly above it. Also, since only two floors have
tips, the tip section will only appear on those floors.

     Tip --------- Walk on the Ishtar, then face the bottom at point A, then
                   Point B. Walk on the Ki, then face the bottom at point C.
                   Don't use the picax or kill the Ishtar and Ki, or you will
                   be forced to go back to an earlier floor.

Mace on floor 42 has no power. It also says that Druaga cannot be defeated
unless you obtain all the Hyper gear (gauntlet, helmet, sword, and armor).
