===============================================================================

- Version 1.0 (2002-08-25): Wrote the FAQ (finally) finished all lists.

- Version 2.0 (2003-01-05): Added the FAQ section and corrected some minor
                            grammatical errors. Also added some small things
                            here and there.

- Version Final (2003-03-22): Added the missing second items for Valmar Fly
                              and Devil from Morraen, Over Fiend and Chen
                              Guojun.

                              Well, this is the final version of my FAQ. I
                              probably won't be updating it any time soon
                              unless someone will submit me a completely
                              unexpected information like: 'You can use
                              Carro in combat!!!'O_o. I believe that the
                              guide covers pretty much everything in the
                              game. So I'll see you in my next FAQ! <:E

- Version Final+ (2004-01-07): Well that 'probably' did not happen. ^_^ As

                               contributions came after the final version
                               thus forcing me to update the Final version.

                               Nothing changed that big. Corrected question 7
                               in the FAQ section. Thanks to all of you who
                               mailed me about it. Fixed an error on Melfices
                               regenerator for the Dreamcast version. Deleted
                               some of my useless ranting, added some more
                               questions to the FAQ section... fixed the item
                               listing tables to look nicer. Changed the ASCII
                               logo. Did some serious layout changes.

                               else. Same goes for small questions, everything
                               I know about Grandia II is in my guide. If you
                               can't find what you're looking for then I don't

Introduction
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi!

Welcome to my Grandia II FAQ for the PC. As soon as this game was released on
PC I've decided to write FAQ for a grand sequel to a grand game. I hope you
like it, but most importantly I hope it will help you.

Grandia II was originally released on the Dreamcast. Four months after its
Japanese release, Grandia II was available in North America thanks to Ubi Soft.
The voice acting team was the same in the Metal Gear Solid. Most importantly
after a huge seccess of the original, which became classic, everyone expected
no less from Grandia II. Even though it's not a direct sequel. Did Grandia II
became classic? Hard to say, probably not. Although it was released on the DC,
PC and PS2. Grandia II is a great game but in my personal opinion Grandia I was
better. Estimated retail price was $40 for this game.

   III. Game Tutorial
===============================================================================

There are two kinds of Tutorial in my guide: Quick Tutorial and Game Tutorial.
You'll find Quick Tutorial throughout the guide and it will contain some useful
tips and hints. And Game Tutorial is the in-game Tutorial that you'll find it
in every general store. Miscellaneous Tutorial was written by me and it
contains some information that you won't find in the in-game Tutorial. So if
you have experience with Grandia then you should skip this section and go
straight for the Walkthrough, because you'll just fly through the game system.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   Miscellaneous Tutorial
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- LEVELS ARE IMPORTANT! They are. Try to follow my level advices or try to get
  a high levels by yourself. You have to understand that with high levels all
  (most) of the Bosses are an easy kill, plus when you train your characters
  for levels you also gain SC, MC and G which are vital for move and magic
  learning and for buying things because prices in later shops are quite high.

- Normal Battle - If Ryudo encounters enemy while it's red (it saw you) then it
  will be a normal battle.

- You have the Initiative - If Ryudo encounters enemy while it's not red (it
  can't see you) then you'll have the initiative. Always aim for initiative.

- You were surprised - If the enemy is red (it saw you) and encountered someone
  besides Ryudo while you were fleeing, then it's a surprise encounter.

- If you are about to loose to an enemy you can't defeat then choose [Escape]
  and you'll flee like a rabbit. You can escape from every battle except, of
  course, the Boss battles.

- Millenia acts different in battle. See those colors on her picture during the
  fight? That's how she's feeling. The color depends on various aspects during
  battle. When she's feeling fine there will be nothing there. If she gets
  excited then it's green. When starts getting annoyed its light green and
  yellow. Orange is when she feels angry. Moreover, when it's Red she's in
  Rage. When she's in Rage two things will happens, Berserk + Haste which
  Means that her IP starts moving faster and you'll lose control over her.
  She'll use Taint of Wind and then her most powerful moves and spells while
  she has the SP and MP for that.

- After you kill a monster you can get 1 of 2 items for it. One is normal
  item and the other is the rear. Chances to get the rear item are small but
  most of the time the rear items will be more valuable. You can find the
  list of all monster items in this FAQ.

- Abnormal Stats are abnormalities caused by magic or special attacks. They
  include the following:

  [Poison]: Poisoned target gradually loses HP.
  [Magic cure]: Cure
  [Item cure]: Antidote, Poison Antidote, Purifying Herb, Fresh Sandwich,
               Panacea

  [Sleep]: Target is asleep and can't do anything, awakens if attacked.
  [Magic cure]: None
  [Item cure]: Eye Drops, Torte's Reedpipe, Panacea

  [Paralyze]: Paralyzed target is stunned and can't take action for some time.
  [Magic cure]: Cure
  [Item cure]: Paralysis Salve, Fresh Sandwich, Paralysis Salve, Purifying
               Herb, Panacea

  [Confusion]: Confused target attacks random targets on the battle screen even
               allies.
  [Magic cure]: None
  [Item cure]: Smelling Salts, Panacea, Oracle's Staff (weapon)

  [Plague]: Pagued target gradually loses a lot HP and gains various status
            disorders. Also decreases stats. Effect carry's over to the next
            battle if not cured.
  [Magic cure]: None
  [Item cure]: Vaccine, Caterpillar Soup, Panacea

  [Magic block]: Magic blocked target can't use any Magic Spells.
  [Magic cure]: Refresh
  [Item cure]: Magic Blessing, Blessing Scroll, Panacea

  [Move block]: Move blocked target can't use any Moves.
  [Magic cure]: Refresh
  [Item cure]: Move Blessing, Blessing Scroll, Panacea

  [Death]: Character can't do anything nor anything affects the character until
           the revival.
  [Magic cure]: Resurrect, Droplets of Life (Move)
  [Item cure]: Yomi's Elixir, Miracle Elixir, Hero's Elixir

   Beginning Tutorial

Combo/Critical/Cancel
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There are two kinds of attacks you can use at any time: Combo and Critical. The
Combo is a pretty ordinary attack, good for inflicting a lot of damage on the
enemy. It is a combination of several attacks in succession, so you can cause
extra damage. The Critical attack causes less damage than the Combo, but it can
Cancel enemy attacks. Here, Cancel means to halt an enemy attack or magic spell
and cut an enemy's IP. If you hit with a Critical attack while the enemy's icon
is between COM and ACT, the enemy's attack can be canceled. You can also cancel
enemy moves and magic. Cancel effects all enemies.

The order in which commands are entered and take effect is determined by IP
(initiative points). The IP gauge also shows you the current status of action
for each character. When a party member's icon comes to the COM position on the
IP gauge, you can enter a command and when the icon comes to the ACT position,
the command takes effect.

A victory in combat earns you gold (G) and experience (EXP) points along with
'skill coins'. There are two kinds of skill coins: 'Special Coins' (SC) and
'Magic Coins' (MC).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   Intermediate Tutorial
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Moves (Special Abilities)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Moves are special abilities that each individual character possesses. Some
moves attack the enemy and some restore the health of your party. Using a move
consumes a number of SP (Special Points). To learn new moves and power-up the
moves you already have, you need SC (Special Coins).

Each party member can learn a certain number of moves. Moves are more powerful
than Combo or Critical, but they use up SP. You can't use a move without enough
SP. Staying at an Inn restores all SP, but using Combo and Critical also
restores a little of your SP. Getting hit by an enemy attack also restores SP.

You cannot learn new moves simply by earning Experience Points (EXP) in battle.
You can only learn moves by using Special Coins (SC) earned in battle on
[Learn Moves] screen. Select [Power Up] command then [Learn Moves] from the
learning categories, select the character you want. Select a move not yet
learned to learn it. You may not know exactly what the move does until you
learn it. But the help messages at the bottom serves as a guide for selecting
moves. Be careful, because different moves require different numbers of SC to
learn them. Moves you have just learned take a long time to execute. You can
use Special Coins (SC) to raise the acting speed of the moves you have learned.
This is how you 'power-up' moves. To power-up moves, use Special Coins (SC) on
[Learn Moves] screen on the moves you have already learned. As the move levels
go up, the acting speed goes up and so does its power, but Special Coins (SC)
required also increases. Level 5 is the maximum level of each move.

Magic
~~~~~

Magic can be used to attack the enemy or restore the HP of friends. To use
magic, naturally you need MP (Magic Points), but a party character must be also
equipped with a Mana Egg in advance. Magic is contained in Mana Eggs, so magic
can only be used after a character is equipped with a Mana Egg. To learn new
magic spells or power-up existing spells, you need MC (Magic Coins), MC are
used not on the individual party member, but on the Mana Egg. Mana Eggs are
equipped on [Equip Menu] like weapons and armor. This means that each
individual party member can be equipped with only one Mana Egg at a time.

When you want to use magic, use the Move/Magic command. Using magic depletes
MP. You cannot use magic without enough MP. MP can be restored by staying at an
Inn. The magic spells that can be used are different depending on the Mana Egg.
By equipping a party member with a different Mana Egg, the same character can
then use different magic spells. Mana Eggs can be switched not only in the
field but in battle also. Some magic is more effective on certain monsters.

You can only learn magic by using Magic Coins (MC) earned in battle on
[Learn Magic] screen. The number of Magic Coins (MC) required to learn a magic
spell is displayed for items not yet learned. You may not know exactly what the
magic spell does until you learn it. But the help messages at the bottom serve
as a guide for selecting magic. Magic you have just learned takes a long time
to act, but you can use Magic Coins (MC) to raise the acting speed of the magic
you have learned. This is how you 'power-up' magic.

To power-up magic, from [Learn Magic] screen, use Magic Coins (MC) on the magic
spells you have already learned. As the level of the magic spells go up, the
level of the Mana Egg also goes up. Once a Mana Egg gets up a level, you can
then learn even more powerful new spells.

   Advanced Tutorial
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Skills
~~~~~~

Skills help increase the abilities of party members separate from going up
Experience levels. Equipping a party character with a skill can raise the
character's HP, MP, STR (Strength) or MAG (Magic) parameters. Skills are
'written' in Skill Books so you must first obtain a Skill Book before you can
acquire skills. For skills, 'Power Up' means to use Special Coins (SC) or Magic
Coins (MC) to 'read' a Skill Book and learn a skill. Any party member can be
equipped with the skill thus learned, so the skills are a sort of 'knowledge'
shared by members.

A Skill Book is needed to use skills. Skills are broadly divided into move-type
skills and magic-type skills. SC are needed to learn move-type skills and MC
are needed to learn magic-type skills. You may not know exactly what the skill
does until you learn it. The help messages at the bottom serve as a guide for
selecting skills.

Like moves and magic, skills can also be 'powered-up'. To power-up skills, use
coins on [Learn Skills] screen on the skills you have already learned. As when
they are learned, SC are needed to power-up move-type skills and MC are for
magi-type skills. AS the level go up, new skills may be added into the same
Skill Book.

You can only use skills after you Equip individual party members with them.
Equipping skills is performed with the [Skill Equip] command. Each party member
can be equipped with a different number of skills. He or she can be equipped
with more than one skill up to their maximum number of skills. The number of
skills a character can be equipped increases as their experience point level
goes up. If one party member is already equipped with a skill, other members
cannot be equipped with that skill. To equip another party character with that
skill, you must either use 'Remove' or learn the same skill from another Skill
Book.

Counter/Defend/Evade
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Counter, Defend and Evade are slightly more advanced tactics:

Counter - A 'counter' is when your attack hits just before an enemy attack. If
your attack hits just when your enemy's icon on the IP gauge reaches ACT, a
Counter results. If a Counter hits, additional damage is inflicted. You can
score a Counter not only with a Combo but also with Critical attacks, moves
and magic too. But if your Counter timing is off, you may suffer additional
damage yourself. If you are aiming to score a Counter, you need to think about
the distance to the enemy, and the time it takes from when the party member is
poised to attack until the attack hits. When aiming to score a Counter watch
the progress of the IP gauge. Aim for the space between COM and ACT. If a
Counter doesn't seem possible, you might try to bide your time with a Defend or
Evade.

Defend - Defend is a method of reducing the damage from enemy attacks. When you
select Defend, the party member takes a defensive stance for a fixed length of
time. Defend can also reduce the chances of status changes. Furthermore, more
SP is recovered when you are attacked while Defending than when you are not
Defending.

Evade - Use Evade to move to another location to keep an enemy attack from
hitting. You can move to the selected evasion point to try to evade an attack.
Evade is effective in escaping from normal attacks and range attacks, but if
the evading party member is 'target' of a special attack or magic attack, it
cannot be evaded. Party members do sometimes avoid normal enemy attacks on
their own. Evade increases the chances of this happening.

Treasure Icon
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Treasure Icon (yellow bells) indicates the rough probability of that
monster dropping a good item. Treasure Icons sometimes appear in a window. When
Treasure Icon appear, there is a good chance that the monster will drop an item
when slain.  The more Treasure Icons that appear, the better the chance of a
good item. But even if there is no icon, the chances of a good item are still
not zero.

- Ryudo -

Ryudo is a young Geohound who travels the land with his best and only friend
Skye. He has been trained swordplay in his home village Garlan. He's wearing a
mask of 'whatever' attitude and never trusts anybody besides himself and Skye.
He also doesn't care about nothing except for a job-well-done and a payment for
it. His heart is full of pain, pain of memories about his tragic past which he
only desires to forget. However, his easygoing life as well as his hidden pain
go upside-down when he meets a young Songstress of Granas...

Poison Antidote hidden behind the bushes. Continue down the path until you come
across ladders and the SAVE POINT use it. Notice the blue arrow pointing up.

<Quick Tutorial>---------------------------------------------------------------

==<SAVE POINT a good old save point. Apart from that it can recover you, it is
also the only point in the game where you can save your progress. Unlike
Grandia I here SAVE POINTS won't give you useful hints.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After your first ladders, you'll find your first treasure. Get the Blizzard
Charm. Go down the ladder and encounter your first enemy in Grandia II the
mottled spider. Spider is an easy foe just kill him with your combo. And his
skill web trap that does -1 move is nothing to worry about. Open yet another
TREASURE CHEST to find Wound Salve, Hand Grenade and Yomi's Elixir. There is
nothing else to do here so continue to Carbo Village.

As you enter the village you'll see conversation between the Granas sisters.
They are talking about some ceremony and that they have hired bodyguard (that's
you) for Elena. After they retire a man tells you about preparations for the
ceremony to 'Drive away the Evil Spirits'(God bless Granas Church!). After that
it's all up to you to explore the village. Talk to the townsfolk and visit the
shop (if you have the money that is). After that there is nothing much to do so
prepare yourself and walk straight into the church.

As you walk up to the church you'll hear a song. Who could it be? Well it's
none other than Songstress Elena herself singing. Unable to resist the song
Ryudo decides to check things out from the inside.

In the church Elena is still singing and then Ryudo abruptly interrupts her.
She freaks out at the site of lowly Geohound and asks Ryudo to leave. Before
things could get hot Carius enters calms Elena and sends her away to prepare
for the trip. He then asks you to wait him at the inn. So that's what you
should do.

Exit the church and enter the inn. At the inn choose 'The priest told me to
wait here...'. When Carius arrives he will tell you about the ceremony in
Garmia Tower. He explains he needs a bodyguard for one sister. Carius suggests
you prepare yourself and come to the church, however as you are already
prepared just go strait to the church. You meet Carius and Elena at the front
of the church. Elena of course is not happy about the company of filthy
Geohound but Carius convinces her so she joins the party.

She isn't actually in your party, just for the looks. You are her bodyguard so
you'll have to do all the killing by yourself. Exit the village and enter the
World Map.

- Elena -

Elena is a young songstress in Carbo village. She has a kind heart and is very
naive. She has spent all her life singing and helping Carius in a local church.
She loves everybody and everything but most of all Granas, and she's ready to
give up her personal life just to follow the will of Granas. She is in a
constant fear of loosing herself. She always has to fight the Dark curse that
is lurking in her pure soul. She soon finds comfort she needs in a young
Geohound named Ryudo...

the place you want or need to go and then press Action. The places where you
can or have to go are in white, while the places that are closed are in gray.
In Grandia exploration of the World Map is extremely limited because of
specific World Map. You can't go where you want and visit the places you want
so most of the time you'll have to go just where you need to.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Select The Black Forest 1 because that's where you'll need to go.

of the road. On the left 50G and right Myriad Power Nut. Leave the forest go to
World Map and enter the Garmia Tower.

When you arrive all the sisters enter the Tower to perform their ceremony. And
you are left outside to wait until their done. But something goes wrong and
Ryudo decides to check things out. Prepare yourself for the tower.

Enter the Tower and save your progress without hesitation. Make your way
through those pesky spiders and go get Hand Grenade. Then collect Wound Salve.

collected all 3 items make your way to the second floor.

GARMIA TOWER 2 FLOOR

         Special attacks - Web Trap (move -1, one)

Go trough the path that is open to you. Enter the room with the broken Gargoyle
statues and encounter your first Gargoyle. Gargoyle is a fairly easy enemy if
you're careful. Easy to kill one but watch out when there's 2 or more, because
they have a special attack called Howl, more hits it does more damage so watch
it! If you see them casting it use Critical and don't forget to heal.

After the fight you'll notice treasure lying but you can't take it yet so go
through a couple of Gargoyles and spiders and take that treasure that you
couldn't get before 150G. Reach the SAVE POINT recover, save. Don't go up yet
take a moment go through the other way to get Wound Salve. And this floor is
done, so save again head up to the top floor of the Tower and prepare for a
Mini Boss battle.

Quickly attack a couple of times the first Gargoyle with combo until he's dead
or nearly dead. After that they'll start using Howl. Be careful don't let them
both cast it let 1 Gargoyle use Howl and finish the other one with Critical.
After that the 1 that's left should be an easy kill.

After the fight Ryudo checks half-dead Tessa lying on the floor. She tells you
that the ceremony went wrong and that you should save Elena. Then she's dead
meat. Try to go through the only door but it won't budge so Skye will try to
look for another way. He then points you the window. See the ! mark? Press
Action!

==<Quick Tutorial>-------------------------------------------------------------

(!) Action Mark. Press an action button to trigger an event like climbing a
ladder or breaking a window.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ryudo then smashes the window with his blade and jumps through it. In the next
room he discovers strange Darkness and Elena floating with Dark wings attached
to her. After Ryudo snaps out his flashback memories, he rushes to save Elena.
They escape the Tower by rope into the woods. And the Tower is covered by the
Darkness.

In the woods when Elena regains consciousness she feels depressed and wants to
die. All her friends are dead and she believes that they have already lost to
Valmar. But Geohound Ryudo the cold, unfeeling brute convinces her that she
can't bring anyone back from the dead and that they have to go back to the
village.

Enter the village. Everything looks calm nothing new or out of the ordinary.
It's evening so all the doors are closed and everyone is sleeping. Save and
visit the shop. Nothing to do so just escort Elena back to the church. At the
entrance Carius is already waiting for you. Ryudo, Elena and Carius proceed to
the inside of the church to have conversation there. Ryudo briefly explains
what happened. Carius then sends Elena to rest and explains Ryudo what really
happened in the Tower.

Those Dark wings were actually the wings of Valmar. During battle between
Valmar and Granas, Valmar was not destroyed but only defeated. He grows in
power and seeks to break the seals which have kept him bound. And now the day
of Valmar's rebirth and thus destruction of the world is near. Even the
'innocent' Pope Zera Innocentius is not enough to stop Valmar. Carius then
explains that Elena is going to die because of the accursed wings of Darkness.
Well Ryudo doesn't care of course and is about to leave but Carius suggests him
yet another job offer. He wants him to be a bodyguard (again) for Elena. Carius
wants to send her to the Granas Cathedral, because he thinks that Zera might
help Elena. Ryudo plays hard to get but after hearing that the payment will be
gold statue he says that he'll think about it.

Before this conversation could come to an end Ryudo and Carius hear some noise
coming from the outside so they ran to look what's happened. Outside they find
some strange woman with dark wings (hmmm... looks familiar). The woman plays
innocent but with the dark wings sticking out from her back she hardly
convinced anyone. Carius realizes what's cooking and sends a magic ball at her
but with a zero affect. The strange woman will find that the statue the church
along with the townsfolk is most irritating. Then she goes crazy and decides to
burn everything. Ryudo stops her from doing it and asks her if she is really a
good person. Strange woman feels offended and decides to kick Ryudo's ass.

If you think that you can defeat her than think again. Notice her HP it's
????/???? that means that her HP is beyond your imagination and ability. Anyway
when she is tired of you she'll just Zap! you and you're toast (paralyzed). She
then introduces herself as Millenia. After this kind of Shock Ryudo comes into
senses and accepts the job offer.

And for those few of you who actually defeated her: nice job! I can imagine how
hard it was. And for those of you who defeated her using cheats shame--on you!

So you're back at the inn. After a little conversation with Skye, Carius and
Elena join you. Carius then hands you the Gold Statue (500G that's a fortune!
And the ability to restore 5HP that must be heaven sent!). Now you're prepared
for the journey and Elena is actually joining your party. Just look at her
Status, level 7, (that's what you get for singing instead of fighting) a lousy
level but it's all up to you to make it better. Go to the World Map and choose
INOR MAUNTAINS 2.

==<Quick Tutorial--------------------------------------------------------------

==<From this point on when you visit the inn, you'll have anther option to
choose apart from Recover, Cancel and Save. It's Spend the Night. This option
goes back to Grandia I where you could sit with your party at the dinner table
and discuss your adventures or just chat. When you select someone that
character speaks others may speak to. When you choose Ryudo you can end the
dinner and thus the conversation. This feature is not vital for the game but
helps you to know your characters better.

As you enter the mountains smash those mushrooms and grab Muscle Mushroom.
Continue walking until you find a SAVE POINT save. Now explore this forest and
kill the spiders and the snakes. You can see that there are a lot of mushrooms
here take your time and squash them all. But be careful you never know what may
be inside the next mushroom it can be 50G or it can be an enemy or an item.
Head all the way to the southern end and grab 150G. When you're done with the
mushroom slaughter continue up the mountain path. Then choose the path with
Poison Antidote on it. Continue heading up the mountain until you come across

Elena is tired so they decide to camp. The tent is built (man, where did they
get that huge tent?!) and they sit by the fire arguing. After that Elena goes
to sleep and Ryudo chats with Skye a little. Then he also goes to sleep. Elena
wasn't actually sleeping, she overheard everything and had a sudden change of
heart towards Ryudo.

It's morning Ryudo is sleeping but Elena wakes him up and she's feeling happy
and perky and everything. She apologizes to Ryudo and Skye for misjudging them
and asks them to get her to Granas Cathedral.

Go up the incline until those huge stones collapse. Head down where they have
fallen and collect 50G. Go back and continue until you reach the ladders climb
them. Notice the TREASURE CHEST you can't have it yet. Keep walking until you
find 3 rocks some gold and spiders kill the spiders guarding 150G take it.
Enable the first rock you see it'll roll down the path and smash those rocks
surrounding the TREASURE CHEST. Go down and open the BIG TREASURE CHEST in it
you'll find Poison antidote, Yomi's Elixir and the Crystal Brooch. Now take
care of the hole that's keeping you from getting Climbing Hat. And the third
rock will reveal hidden enemy Grag Snakes. Climb down the ladders head down
along the path and secure those about-to-fall stones. When you find ladders use
them and head down. Collect 50G make your way into the World Map and choose
Agear Town.

Enter the town. Ryudo and Elena watch the town view. Elena is puzzled whether
this is a town in a first place. Because it's completely trashed. Talk to the
guards and visit the shop. Guards tell you what happened. It appears that this
town was attacked by monsters and was completely ruined only Vyx the innkeeper
and the guards remain. Nothing else to do so head straight to the inn.

At the inn you meet up with an old friend of Ryudo. You chat a little bit about
this and that. Then you notice young boy talking to some clowns. Boy's name is
Roan and he lost some kind of medal and that medal was a memento of his mother.
He begs the clowns to help him find it but they are to scared to do it and tell
him to ask a Geohound. The boy then starts begging Ryudo the Geohound for help.
Ryudo says he's busy with one job already and that the boy should give it up.
Elena tells Ryudo that they could help Roan but Ryudo quickly shuts her up by
feeding her Kuko berries. He then starts complaining about the company of Elena
and that he could just cut his way through those monsters if it wasn't for her.

Meantime Elena stuffed herself with Kuko berries and is totally drunk. After
Ryudo takes Elena upstairs to sleep he returns to his room and decides to go
clear the monsters out by himself.

And then all of a sudden Ryudo hears a laugh. From nowhere appears Millenia and
paralyzes both Ryudo and Skye. She then tries to, well you know, take advantage
of poor Ryudo. But her attempt was interrupted by Rissoto the clown. He tells
that Roan has gone somewhere. Well after that Millenia unparalyzes Ryudo and
Skye and magically decides to join your party, just like that! Go down the
stairs where clowns have gathered. They're wondering whether to go save the boy
or not. In the end they decide that they should go and rescue him. But then
Ryudo says that he is going to hunt some monsters and that he can bring the boy
back if he'd find him. The clowns will want to go along but Ryudo refuses their
offer but takes Millenia with him (smart move).

Save, leave the inn and head through the town to the DURHAM CAVE 1.

- Millenia -

Millenia is the most mysterious character of all. She occupies Elena's body and
has enormous magical power. Millenia is a part of Valmar and therefore she is
on a mission to gather all the pieces of Valmar and then be reborn as a
complete Valmar. But little did she knew that a simple encounter with Ryudo
will change all her plans...

After the general overview of the cave you'll see how stagnate rocks come
falling down and create a sort of stairs use them to go down. Save at the SAVE
POINT and continue through the ark where you'll find a strange creature called
Carro.

==<Quick Tutorial>-------------------------------------------------------------

==<Carro is a magical creature. You will them him in various dungeons and if
you have at least 3 Poff Nuts then you can feed them to Carro and he will join
your party to light the way. Carro leaves the party when you finfish the
dungeon. Carro can't be used in battle.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You don't have any Poff Nuts so leave him be and take Firebomb. Keep walking up
and then jump down. See the stone, which is like, ten times larger than Ryudo?
Push it with ease and it will smash path in a wall for you. Go through that
path and take Medicinal Herb. Use the lever and cross the bridge. Take
Medicinal Herb. Go through the ark and push the stone to create path for you
don't forget to take Yomi's Elixir behind the boxes. Go back to the lever and
use it notice how bridges changed their position one got down and the other got
up. Go through the ark with a gate and kill 4 Grag Snakes now just keep walking
down the path and use that stone you pushed. Cross the bridge and collect 100G.
Go through the gate and after it closes fight the Frost Frogs to open it again.

Toads, nothing to worry about they have lots of HP but that's the only thing
that they have really. After an easy kill the gates reopen and you should grab
for Sleeping Charm and Poff Nut. Go back to the room with frogs and take the
other path to DURHAM CAVE 2 and prepare for a Mini Boss battle.

Don't mind their special attack Sleep Spawn it won't help them. You should
defeat them with ease.

After the fight the boy thanks Ryudo and wishes to come along to find the medal
which was left by his mother who died. Ryudo refuses of course. The boy is
stubborn and goes hysterical. Millenia will think that the boy is cute she'll
hug him and decide to take him along. The boy introduces as Roan. Ryudo says
that the boy will only be a burden and that they should send him home. Millenia
says that she can protect Roan and that everything will be OK. Roan promises
that he will not cause any trouble and joins the party. After Ryudo sends a
couple of rude remarks about the boy you gain control of the party.

- Roan -

Roan is a young boy on a quest to find the truth. He comes from a distant
Kingdom of Cyrum. Having lost his mother, this boy roams the land in search of
whatever knowledge he can find about Light and Darkness and Battle of Good and
Evil. He's worried about his people, the past of his people is haunting him. In
his young age, he has to rise up to the past sins of his people and help them
to overcome them. But he soon finds out that he's not alone in this...

The Troglodytes are the first thing you should deal with, because they can get
really annoying with their Sleep Spawn. Use a skill (any skill) with Ryudo on
the first Troglodyte and Golden Hammer with Roan on the other Troglodyte.
Finally cast Fallen Wings with Millenia that should finish Troglodytes and
damage the Minotaur. After the Troglodytes are wasted the Minotaur won't be a
problem. Should he cast his Tornado Horn use Critical.

After the battle Troglodytes are gone but the Minotaur is still standing.
Not for long though Millenia casts some fire magic on the Minotaur and he
becomes toast, literally! To Ryudo's amazement she will call herself 'The
Wings of Valmar'. She then tells Roan to find his medal. He searches the
Minotaur and finds his medal. When regain control leave the cave.

At the cave entrance Millenia tells that she's feeling tired. Then Millenia
will disappear and Elena will appear, so Millenia actually transformed into
Elena! Well it figures Elena WAS possessed by the Dark Wings. Elena of
course doesn't know or remember anything.

At the inn Ryudo explains all that's happened while Elena was unavailable.
Elena is shocked. Some clowns show up and start arguing. They talk about
Millenia a little more and then decide to continue their quest to Granas
Cathedral as quickly as possible. Roans feels a bit lonely and wants to join
your party. With the party of three leave the inn visit the shop if you
need, take Poff Nut from the guy standing in the town ruin and exit to the
World Map. Choose BAKED PLAINS.

Save at the SAVE POINT. Roans runs somewhere then comes back and invites
them to enjoy the view of the Granacliffs. Man, this really reminds me
Grandia I. Granacliffs are somewhat like End of The World in Grandia I, big
and splits something into two.

So anyway, Elena have never seen Granacliffs so she gets all sentimental and
all. Ryudo, the more experienced one, finds that the name 'Battle of Good and
Evil' is kind of old. They still have to cross it and there is no bridge. What
should they do?

AND THEN SUDENNLY! Some hilarious unidentified flying object bursts from the
clouds. Roan explains that that's the Skyway and they should ride it. After
that St. Heim Papal State is only a stone throw away according to Roan.
Elena gets excited but it seems like there is nothing that would surprise
Ryudo. They decide to spend the night here.

At the evening meal by the fire the party talks about 'The Battle of Good
and Evil' Darkness and light, Millenia and what to do next. In the middle of
the night Elena wakes up from a nightmare and wakes up Ryudo. He wants to go
outside but suddenly Ryudo feels that something is wrong because everything
is to quite. They hear unpleasant sound and all the party goes outside to
check it out. Outside the tent you find some kind of giant bumbling
something about teaching someone a lesson and that he found you. Whatever!
Just beat the crap out of this stupid lamo!

BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: Beast-Man
      HP - 4800
      SC - 100
      MC - 0
      EXP - 150
      Drop items - None
      Special attacks - Beast Fang Cut (cancel effect, one)

This guy has a lot of HP also he's very fast. He has a very powerful attack
called Beast Fang Cut that deals major damage and has a cancel effect
(ouch!). If that's not enough for you, he's normal attack is actually a
combo of two successive hits, also big damage. You have one advantage in
this fight, there are three of you and he's only one. So let Elena do cancel
all the time and let her heal if necessary. Meantime Ryudo and Roan should
use their most powerful skills (Tenseiken Slash and Dragon Raise, right?).
Enjoy the victory.

After the fight the Beast-Man comes to his senses and tells Ryudo that he's
not the one he's looking for. Although he doesn't have a death smell, he has
smell of Melfice the destroyer of hid village. Beast-Man calls Melfice the
Demon-Man. It seems that Ryudo and Skye knows this Melfice fellow. Mareg
(the Beast-Man) then apologizes to Ryudo for attacking him and walks away
into the bushes. Ryudo than explains that Melfice is his brother. Strangely
but Ryudo explains nothing more and then you regain control.

Go along the edge and then turn right and up to take the Shell Armor. Go
down take 200G. Continue walking until you reach several trees there you can
get Swiftness Nut. Nothing to do here so go to the World Map and select
LILIGUE CITY.

After the general overview of the city your party enters and you witness a
conversation between a family of three. They are about to leave the city
because it is cursed by Darkness. Ryudo asks is the Skyway available but they
say that it is closed to the public. The Skyway is for Gadan's personal use
only. Ryudo and Roan are surprised by this unexpected turn of events. Family
leaves the city. Elena feels tired and wants to rest. Roan says that they
could try this regions delicacy if he could remember its name. Visit the shop
and go to the inn just the opposite of the shop.

At the inn the innkeeper tells you that the only thing they have is Arum
root, the delicacy Roan mentioned. The party is hungry and decides to take
it anyway. Choose to spend the night. At the inn room party is talking about
how horrible Arum root is. It's not edible it tastes like sand. After the
'meal' party decides to go visit Gadan tomorrow.

The next morning party sets out to visit Gadan. As you walk through the city
Elena notices a boy sitting next to the huge stone pillar. Elena asks the
boy what's the matter and the boy says he's hungry. Elena then try's to feed
him an apple but he runs away. A man walks up to you and says that you
shouldn't give the boy any food because it's to tempting. The he explains
that people of this city cannot eat normal food even if they wanted to. They
can only bear the disgusting Arum root. Ryudo gives a good advice, not to
talk to strangers because they could be diseased. But Elena still wants to
help these people and runs away. Ryudo and Roan fallow her to the Engineer's
home. The family is arguing whether to leave city or not because they cannot
eat Arum root any more. Elena asks what is happening to this city Engineer
says that the people of this city have lost their sense of taste so they can
eat only Arum root. Ryudo doesn't give a damn about the problem and asks
Engineer about the Skyway. Engineer tells that you should go to Gadan's
mansion and ask him. Gadan's house is at the back of the city near the tree,
go there.

As you enter you'll see a really fat guy sitting and stuffing himself with
food (man, he must be a mutant just look at him, that tongue, Shlurp! And
look at this place, nice statue). Guess what, that's Gadan himself. He
informs you that they are not taking people with Skyway right now because it
drops their business efficiency. Then he notices that you have a sister with
you and decides that this is also a business. Ryudo asks how much does he
want for the ride. 10000G that's the price. Ryudo agrees without a single
thought about the money. Ryudo wants to leave as soon as possible but Gadan
says that the last tram has already left and the next should be tomorrow.
Elena starts arguing about the food, Gadan says that he is blessed and that
he has nothing to do with it and everything. Anyway leave. When they leave
Gadan's house Elena is still angry but Ryudo has a bigger problem, the
money. Where could they find that kind of money? I like Skye, always
straight as an arrow, he gives a damn good advice that they should just
waste that fat ass (but he forgot one thing: this is an RPG). Elena is still
concerned about the townsfolk and wants to go to the church. Ryudo on the
other hand doesn't, but after a while he agrees. So the party sets out for
the church.

The church is on a small mountain near the city. Enter the church and speak
with Holy father. Elena asks father about the tasteless problem. The Holy
Father doesn't know a thing about it and wants to know himself. He thinks
that maybe Lord Granas has turned his face away from the unholy sinners of
this city. Ryudo as always cracks some jokes about Gadan and Father says
that Gadan used to be a good person and was loved by everyone, but then he
changed. Father then invites them to go upstairs to see the truth for
themselves from above. Go upstairs and talk to him.

Upstairs you look through the window and Elena notices that those pillars
might be a part of single ruined temple. Those pillars were damaged when the
city was built but they are still standing. Roan says that people here are
blessed because the city was built on the ruins of the Granas Temple. Ryudo
then will come to a conclusion that this temple might be a temple of Valmar.
Well either way Ryudo doesn't care but Elena does she wants to investigate
because the seal may be broken. Ryudo explains that he's not being paid for
this and that they should get to the Cathedral as soon as possible. Elena
plays stubborn and finally says that either way she's going and there's no
stopping her. Ryudo as her bodyguard has to go along and protect her. You're
back downstairs Father tells you that you should be careful the dungeon is
dangerous. Whatever, as that could stop you! Leave the church.

When you leave the church you meet up with Mareg. Ryudo asks Mareg
what's up. The Beast-Man tells that the smell of this place is somewhat
offending to the earth. Ryudo then starts asking various questions about his
brother Melfice. He hasn't got a clue. Elena then simply asks Mareg to join
their party. He's always ready to fight the Evil and joins.

- Mareg -

Mareg is a Beast-Man warrior. He comes from a distant Nanan village. He's
battle skills are very high and he never lets down a party member in need.
Though he may look like a barbaric-savage-brute, but the power of his body is
only surpassed by the power of his mind. He is very intellectual and has a
deep connection with the earth. Only one thought keeps him on his journey, the
thought of revenge. He looks for a Demon-Man who burnet his village. Mareg,
being the strongest of his people, must search him out and avenge. However
when he meets Ryudo he discovers that his Demon-Man is closer than he
thought...

In the caverns they discover an orb-like object, which seems to be a broken
seal of Lord Granas. The seal should have kept a Piece of Valmar at bay but
now that it's broken the piece is free.

Suddenly a Spider-Crab-like monster jumps out of nowhere and eats Elena
without a word of warning (Yum!Yum!). But what monster didn't know is that
Elena can morph herself into Millenia. So that's what happened, Millenia
blasted out of that monsters belly and became quite angry with this kind of
poor treatment towards her. The monster chickened out and ran from the
battlefield. Millenia tells you that you should chase it. Collect Smelling
Salts, Burning Bow and Flare Dress and only then chase after him to the

BOSS BATTLE

      HP - 8000           HP - 4000     HP - 4000      HP - 5000
      SC - 1200
      MC - 800
      EXP - 500
      Drop items - Ancient Cuirass, Revival Gem, Book of Wizards, 800G
      Special attacks - Flamethrower (Fire damage, some)
                        Spew Venom (poison effect, some)
                        Burn Flame (Fire damage, some)
                        Huge Leap (damage, all)
                        Gluttony (Def -1, some)
                        Starving Tongue (drain HP, all)
                        Snooze (sleep effect, all)
                        Freeze! (move -1, all)

The monster is actually Gadan himself, fat bastard! He wants to eat you
again! (See the tongue?) Anyway prepare yourself because he's hungry!

There are 2 ways to kill him either way you'll get all the items.

1 - This guy has lots of different attacks. First attack his head will your
most powerful attacks (Flying Tenseiken, Beast-King Smash Fallen Wings and
Dragon Raise). Next turn, finish the head and that should cancel his Snooze
and Burn Flame skills. Then deal with his hands use which moves you've left
and destroy his hands one by one, that should cut of his Spew Venom and
Flamethrower abilities. And he'll be left only with his body. But don't get
comfortable because that's his most deadly part. His 4 body skills are more
than enough to defend himself AND kick your but, so be careful. Your SP and
MP should be pretty much used up but if you have something left use it, if
not just attack him with combo or items. But always let 1 character do
Critical all the time, it won't cancel all his skills but will give some
time. If you're in a stable position keep attacking him and keep using
Critical that should be enough to kill him.

2 - Or you just focus on his body only. Use Flying Tenseiken, Beast-King Smash
Fallen Wings and Dragon Raise only on his body and when you kill the body the
monster also dies.

(Always remember that any multi-part Boss doesn't have to be killed completely
to get all the items. Killing the main body should be enough, but it's all up
to you)

After the fight Millenia absorbs The Tongue of Valmar and feels full of power.
Gadan is dead. Then Millenia shifts back to Elena.

You're back at the city, Ryudo shortly explains to Elena what happened.
Mareg tells that the smell of Tongue of Valmar is the same as smell of
Melfice. Ryudo then asks Mareg if he could join him on his quest after the
job. Mareg agrees. After The Tongue of Valmar was defeated the city was
cured of the tasteless curse. The party decides to go to Granas Cathedral as
soon as possible. When you gain control go to the inn recover and spend the
night there. In the morning proceed to the Skyway. When you enter the Skyway
Station toy meet Engineers family, they thank and leave. Measure for
measure, all's well that ends well the townsfolk have been saved. When
you're ready board the Skyway.

==<Quick Tutorial--------------------------------------------------------------

==<Attention! After you board the Skyway you won't be able to come back, so
you'll be making a big step further into the game. I strongly recommend you
go and train. Try to level up your characters. To do so go back to BAKED PLAINS
2 and keep encountering Sandman, they'll give you about 90 SC and MC and about
80 exp, plus 150G. After that your characters will be pumped up with a lot of
SC and MC.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The party is in the Skyway discussing events in the Ruined Temple. But before
they could finish it something happens. Elena says that Valmar is inside her.
Everything starts shaking and Elena says that Darkness is coming. You'll see
a red flash and an ominous shine of the Valmar moon in the sky. After that the
Skyway crashes down into the woods.

After the Skyway crashes Ryudo says that they've got problems, Mareg then
asks everyone to check for injuries. Ryudo then notices that Elena is gone.
Ryudo starts to panic. But Mareg calms him down by saying that he can smell
her and points the way. They run to find Elena.

You now see Elena unconscious on the ground. Some familiar voice wakes her
up. The voice then tells Elena to look into the shiny plate near her. Elena
does so and discovers that the mysterious voice belongs to Millenia. Elena
recognizes the Wings of Valmar in Millenia and tells she's a Dark One and a
devourer of souls. Millenia says that Elena should be thanking her because
she saved Elena's life. Elena doesn't understand anything.

The rest of the party then finds Elena sitting on the ground and mumbling
something about the Day of Darkness and such nonsense. Elena then wakes up
and tells that she's ok. The party then decides to head for St. Heim
Mountains and after that straight for the Granas Cathedral.

paths. All the paths will be hollow except two, one will contain Oracle's

path will be closed by the root, but no matter because it's empty. Instead

You're back at the forest. There are 3 items in this area, they are easy to
find. The Blueberry is in the middle of 3 trees, 400G to the right, and
you'll have to hit the snow near the big rock to get the BIG TREASURE CHEST
and Icefang Stone, Arctic Cape and Ice Pick in the chest. After the treasure
hunting go down the path. It will start getting foggy, and soon it'll be
hard to see. At this point if you'll want to return you won't be able to,
because some magical trees will be blocking your way back (how did those get
there???). Anyway you don't need to go back so just keep going until you
reach THE GARDEN OF DREAMS.

THE GARDEN OF DREAMS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Items: None

Ryudo comes to a conclusion that the party is lost. Mareg finds that there
is absolutely no smell of life here. Then the fog will clear out, you'll
see a strange flying ball-like creature. It'll ask what are you doing here
and tell you that this is its garden. The ball-like creature is actually a
girl, she calls this place Garden of Happiness. Anyone who comes here
forgets his problems and feels happy (brainwash). The girl tells you that
her eyes are bad but thanks to Granas she can see. The girl hoped that
Elena would understand how beautiful this place really is, and if she
doesn't that she should ask girl with the black wings.

I guess the girl is pretty much nuts because then she asks Elena not to eat
her and then disappears. Ryudo suggests to move on. No monsters no items
nothing, weird place it is. Just get the hell out of there from where you
came.

The garden disappeared and the party doesn't know what's happened. You're
back near the BIG TREASURE CHEST and the path is once again open. So
through it again until you reach a fork. The left path is closed with a
fence (where did THAT came from???) but the right is open, so use it to
get yourself to EAST SILESIA and select MIRUMU VILLAGE.

When you enter the village some villagers will spot you and will be happy
because you have a sister with you. They quickly go ran and ring the
Chief of this village. When the chief arrives he starts begging Elena to
save his village. The party doesn't know what's going on. So anyway when
everything clears out the chief invites to inside to explain things.

So guess what's bothering this village? Curse (surprise!). The villagers
keep falling asleep and can't wake up for days. And they all keep dreaming
the same dream, some horrible eye keeps watching them. You can't help them
because your party's just passing through. The chief then asks you to spend
the night. Ryudo agrees.

Eventually you should go to the Inn, but I suggest you explore the village
first. Then when you're done, go to the Inn. There will be a woman at the
Inn called Irina. She's happy that the sister has finally arrived, and asks
her to help her son Nicolas, he's also asleep. But you're just a traveler so
you can't help her, tough for her but life goes on. Irina the invites you to
look at her son. You're at the back room and Nicolas is sleeping like a
baby. Irina then suggests that he maybe in the Garden of Dreams. Elena says
that this must be the place they past through on their way here. Irina tells
you that Garden of Dreams is just a fairy tale, a Fantasy (poor Irina,
little does she know that Fantasy is reality!). Elena then tells Irina that
they met a girl at the garden with a scar above her eye. Irina says that
that was Aira, Sandra's daughter.

Irina leaves and Elena tells Ryudo she wants to meet the girl ones more.
Ryudo starts joking around, as always.

Leave the Inn and cross the village to see Aira again. Elena then asks
Aira what did she mean by asking her not to eat her. Elena meant just
that. Then Sandra shows up and gets angry with Aira. She then tells the
party to leave Aira alone. Mareg explains that she shouldn't mind his
brute appearance. Sandra then invites the party inside.

You're inside Sandra's house. Ryudo asks what's with the secrecy. Sandra
tells that Aira is not liked by everyone. Aira then asks Roan to show her
his medal. Sandra says that for years she has been looking for medicinal
herbs, and she prayed for Aira's sight, but everyone called her mixtures
'witch's brews' and her prayers 'summonings'. But because of the prayer
Aira's blindness has been cured. Anyway Ryudo then suggests they head back
to the Inn and spend the night.

When the party was about to leave Aira tells that some really scary people
have come. Mareg suggests they should investigate and Ryudo agrees. Leave
the house and cross the bridge. You'll then see that someone has arrived to
the village. Go towards the entrance and you'll a scene where The Cathedral
Knights arrive. Their leader Selene says that she shall dispel the darkness
and that this village is fool of it. She then keeps on talking some
religion-fanatic stuff. But most important thing is that the village is now
closed and none shall leave nor enter. When you gain control talk to Selene,
she recognizes a Granas sister in your party. Elena says that she is a
songstress of Granas and is on her way to the Cathedral to report to his
holiness Zera. Selene tells that Elena's mission must be very important and
her is as well. Talk to her again and then she'll finally notice Ryudo.
Ryudo introduces as Ryudo and says that Elena is under his protection. Ryudo
wants to leave the village but Selene can't let them trough. Ryudo tries to
convince her but she is stubborn. Selene tells that should she find a sinner
in this village, then it's her holy duty to purify this entire village
through fire. Then she leaves with the villagers to discuss the matter. The
party decides to spend the night here because security is very tight.

When you regain control go to the Inn and spend the night. At the table
party discusses the current situation and the holy knights. After the meal
Elena is in her room and Ryudo shows up. He asks her what's up. She tells
that the moon looks eerie. She starts talking about Millenia, Ryudo says
that she's ok. Elena tells that it can't be because Millenia is the darkness
itself. Elena thinks that Millenia wants to restore Valmar to life. Ryudo
try's to cheer her up but she's dead serious. Ryudo then gets the picture
and decides to put an end to it, draws a knife at her. Elena then drops to
her knees and asks Ryudo to make it quick. Ryudo can't belief her stupidity,
he was just joking. Ryudo says that Elena should go to bed. When she leaves
Ryudo decides to go to bed himself.

Ryudo is having a nightmare. He is in a blue space and it is full of
Eyeballs. He runs bet there's no end to the Eyeballs. Then Ryudo stops and
turns around to find that he's being watched by a Big Eyeball. He then tells
that this is his soul and that the Eyeball should get the hell out of here.

Ryudo wakes up. Skye asks him what's the matter. Ryudo tells him that he
wants to forget his past. When you'll want to leave Ryudo will say that he
can't shake the feeling that he's still being watched. And he's right. Check
the window, and you'll find that some floating eyeball is watching Ryudo.
The eyeball will then fly away. Roan and Mareg will run into Ryudo's room
and say that they also have had nightmares. Ryudo then tells that those
eyeballs must be the cause. Elena will come to and the party decides to
check up on Irina. Go to Irina's room. When the party arrives the eyeball is
already floating over Irina. They're to late. Skye tells that he'll follow
the eyeball and that the party should keep up. Go outside.

Outside you'll see lots of flying Eyeballs. The Eyeballs will then flee to
the MYSTERIOUS FISSURE, UNDERGROUND, follow them.

MYSTERIOUS FISSURE, DEPTHS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Items: None
Enemies: None

The party will discover another broken Granas seal. And then The Eyeballs
will attack.

MINI BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: 4 Eyeball Bat
      HP - 3000
      SC - 225
      MC - 225
      EXP - 50
      Drop items - Book of Warriors and 195G
      Special attacks - Delta Burst (damage, one)

An easy fight. Well you can either kill one by one using your most powerful
moves, or you use your most destructive magic on all the Eyeballs, it's up
to you. But all they really do is make a lot of noise, that's all.

After the fight Ryudo tells that these must have been small fish and that
the real villain is somewhere else.

The party is back at the Inn discussing status of the village and the
situation. Ryudo says that he's been having bad dreams about his past, Mareg
and Roan have also had some nightmares. Ryudo thinks that this is all Aira's
doing. Elena disagree. Villager arrives to inform you that Selene is
conducting some kind of experiment and wants everyone in the town hall. Go
there.

You meet Selene in the town hall. Ryudo then tells her that the she should
be chasing after the flying Eyeballs not people. Selene agrees but thinks
that those Eyeballs were merely servants of the real darkness, and that she
should look for a person. She talks crap and then leaves. The party then
decides to find the thing that is controlling the Eyeballs in the fissure
before Selene can do anything. Go back to the fissure.

As you walk up to the fissure Aira calls you. She wants Elena to go to a
happy place where there is no pain and no suffering. When she runs to the
shed, follow her. In the shed Aira falls down into the hole, follow her.

You're back at the seal room. Aira keeps talking about love and happiness.
She then invites you to The Garden of Dreams.

You're back at The Garden of Dreams. Aira still keeps talking about
happiness when a third eyeball pops out of her forehead. Aira says that
this is the eye that Granas gave her (uhu, right!). Elena tells her to
stop it. Aira then will feel that her mother is in trouble and will run
away. You'll have to go back to the village.

In the village Sandra is being pushed around by Selene. Selene wants to
know where Aira is, but Sandra won't tell. Selene can't decide what she
should with the sinners. She then turns to villagers for advice. The crowd
as always side with the stronger. Sandra begs Selene for mercy, but she
won't listen. Then Aira shows up with her happiness. Selene spots the eye
and comes to a conclusion that Aira is the true Evil.

When you gain control head to where all the action is going on. You'll
find Sandra lying on the ground. You hear a voice of Selene. Ryudo tells
Roan and Mareg to wait here while he and Elena check it out.

Selene is after the little girl, and the eye. Ryudo comes and tries to
rescue Aira. Selene then tells Elena to bring Aira to her, Elena can't do
it and wonders if there is another way. Selene says that there isn't. Aira
then sees her mother and runs to her, Sandra is terrified by the third eye,
she thinks Aira is a monster. Aira then disappears.

With no one to purify Selene leaves. Ryudo checks up on Elena, and then
Millenia appears. Sandra says that Aira is beyond help and that she should

be killed. Ryudo gets angry and tells that he will save Aira no matter what
(what's wrong with him?). Millenia has a good idea, to rip the eye out of
her. But Aira's soul will die. Millenia then tells Ryudo to give it up.
Ryudo then gets really, really angry (damn, he's angry). Then the eyeballs
come flying all over the place. Ryudo decides to check out The Garden of
Dreams.

You're back at the garden. There is no one here, but Millenia says that
she's here and opens a portal on the ground. Hit the portal.

You're back at the seal room, but now it ahs a portal of some sort. Millenia
explains that this is an entrance to Aira's soul. Go through the portal to
explore Aira's soul.

      4 Eyeball Bat
      HP - 3000
      Special attacks - Delta Burst (damage, one)

Here's how to kill him. First deal with those flying eyeballs, they are
just annoying. But don't kill them with your best moves, instead use
powerful magic on all ore some enemies. After eyeballs are wasted, Valmar's
Eye is left. After your magic his tendrils should be half-dead by now, but
anyway you'll have to finish them next. After all his minions are gone,
he's almost defenseless. It's time to kick Valmar's Eye's but by using your
most deadly single enemy move. He won't last long.

After the fight you're back at the Garden. Millenia is about to devour Aira
but Ryudo stops her. He says that there should be another way, but there
isn't. Then Aira's mother shows up. Sandra tells that she loves Aira and
that it's all her fault. Millenia then devours Aira's soul and Aira dies
along with the Garden of Dreams. Sandra says that she can't live without
Aira anymore. Millenia then tells that she doesn't care and that nobody
cares. Ryudo gets angry. Millenia then points to a flower and says that this
is Aira's heart, and if Sandra can make this place a blooming garden again
then maybe Aira may return.

You're back at Sandra's house. Sandra is dead serious about reviving that
garden. Leave the house and cross the ridge. You meet Selene, she tells you
that she deal with Sandra and Aira but Ryudo says that it's enough purifying
for today. Selene leaves and you regain control, go to the World Map and
choose ST. HEIM MOUNTAINS, HALFWAY UP.

stayed. Elena thanks Ryudo for being there, and for his help during this
trip. Ryudo says that he actually enjoyed the job. Ryudo then asks her why
is she so nice all the time. Elena tells him that it's because the souls of
the people are weak and that she must bring them to light. Mareg and Roan
return, Ryudo asks them where were they. Mareg then starts talking some wise
stuff (damn, that brute). Anyway he meant that they were lost. At the

They did it! Finally ST. Heim Papal State. Guard approaches you and tells
that this is the place. Ryudo asks is the Cathedral here? Guard then asks
you what business do you have. Elena then explains that she came with a
mission from Carbo village to see his holiness Zera. Guard understands
that it must be important so he wants to escort them to the Cathedral. But
Elena wants to tomorrow. Guard says that he'll inform Zera. Elena then asks
what Ryudo is going to do. He doesn't know but he is concern about his
brother. Roan and Mareg both decide to go along with Ryudo.

When you gain control I suggest you explore the town, visit the shop, talk
to the townsfolk and check out the Library(just love that librarian).
Eventually you'll want to spend the night at the Inn. At this evening meal
everyone says goodbye to Elena. Then some priest shows up and tells that
Zera is waiting for Elena right now. Elena thanks everyone for their help
and leaves.

Action shifts to the Cathedral where Zera tells Elena that in order to
dispel the Darkness and prevent the resurrection of Valmar, she has to find
the legendary sword the Granasaber. Should she fail the world will be
doomed.

Back at the Inn Ryudo, Mareg and Roan are talking about religion. Then a
priest arrives and tells that Zera has a special request for Ryudo. Leave
the village and head for the Cathedral.

The party likes the building even Ryudo. Enter the Cathedral and talk to the

man that is standing in front of the door. The man tells you that only Ryudo
can go inside. Roan wants to wait somewhere interesting, priest tells him
that their library is most fascinating. Roan then tells Ryudo that he shall
check the library for info. Roan and Mareg leave. Head through the door.

In the main hall Zera is talking to the priests. They are concerned about
the rumored revival of Valmar. Zera tells them that they should be strong.
They start to panic. Zera calms them down. He then talks to Selene about
her brutal methods. All the priests leave. Zera then invites you to the next
room. Go to the next room. In the next room Zera explains that he wants
Ryudo to find the holy sword Granasaber. Ryudo still not sure if he should
take the job but the Pope tells that in return Ryudo may ask for anything
he desires. Ryudo likes the idea, but he has to take Elena with him. Ryudo
asks where this sword might be but Zera says all they know is that it
'rests with the Legion of Darkness'. Zera says that he has prepared a room
for Ryudo and that he should rest. Leave the next room.

In the main hall you meet Cardinal Oro. He asks Ryudo what did he hear from
Zera. Ryudo tells him about the sword. Oro thinks that Ryudo isn't cut for
the job. Ryudo starts mocking the Cardinal. Oro gets angry and leaves. You
should do the same.

Go to the library and meet Roan and Mareg. Ryudo shortly explains them
what's happened. Roan suggests Ryudo read some of the books here, but Mareg
has a better idea - eat. So leave the library and go to your room.

Oro is in his room mumbling about the day of Darkness and that Zera has
absolutely zero tolerance towards matters of this weight. He must consult
his auguries. Then Valmar's moon starts to shine through the window. He
looks through the window and discovers Millenia outside. Then Millenia
breaks through the window without a warning. Oro is totally afraid.

Back in the room. The party eats peacefully. Ryudo then tells that he shall
look for that damned sword. Roan and Mareg will help him. Then a priest
comes and tells that Valmar has taken a human form and entered the
Cathedral. Ryudo realizes that it must be Millenia.

Leave the room and go to the balcony. Ryudo says that Millenia is Stupid
because she's practically standing on the dinner plate of Granas. Millenia
says that she doesn't care as long as she can follow Ryudo around (what a
nice person!). She also tells that time is in short supply.

You're back at your room. Leave the room and head to the main hall. Zera
and Elena are already there. Ryudo tells Zera that he'll do the job. Zera
then wishes them luck and gives the Book of Priests. Leave the Cathedral.
Outside the party decides to find clues in the Cyrum Kingdom. As soon as
you regain control leave the city, enter the World Map and select St. HEIM
MOUNTAINS PILGRIM ROAD.

Well of course, you could just cross the bridge and that's it. But if you're
thinking that, then you have got it all wrong! This is an RPG, so get your ass
down those ladders. Use the ladders near people. Go down and head left for Holy

1500G. Go up and take 500G. Keep going up then right to take 500G, then go
round those trees and take the Seed of Moves. Go all the way back and walk
under the bridge. Keep walking up the path, ignore ladders up, and continue.
Take Magic Blessing. Go up and then right to take Poisoned Knife. Go left up
the path and use the ladders. See you're back where you started. But before you
leave see the ruined part of the bridge near the exit? Go though it and take

Use the SAVE POINT and go get TREASURE CHEST near the fence; in it,
you'll find Thunder Ring. Take the main path until you reach destroyed
bridge. You can't cross it so instead go along the river until you reach a
tree surrounded by a fence. Take the Buster Flail and continue the path
until you reach normal bridge. Don't cross it yet, go along the river and
take 1500G. Go back and cross the bridge. Go left up the stairs and take
Black Quartz Helm. Go round the right tower and take 500G. Go up to a small
ruined room to take Earthen Cuirass. Go left until you reach a line of
ruined stone pillars, then go down and take 1500G. No thing much to do here
so maneuver yourself to the bridge and cross it. Go left and take 500G. Then
make your way to RAUL HILLS 2.

See those ball-like plants? Smash them to get Nuts, Seeds and Gems. Keep
walking the path until you reach a fork with a big stone and a BIG TREASURE
CHEST on it. Smash the first stone, climb it, smash the second stone and
take the Quake Stone, Scroll of Alheal and Rage Ring. At the fork if you
take right path it'll lead you to a dead end. So take the left one and use
the SAVE POINT. Cross the stone bridge and keep going down the path until
you reach a fork. Take the path that leads up to RAUL HILL 1. Waste some
plants and take 1500G, then return to the fork. At the fork go down the
path and board the boat. Cross the river and make your way to the World

Now that's what I call a Big City. It's huge! The party admires the city
view. Roan tells that this lovely scenery is fake and that true face of this
is bound to appear. He then explains that they the people of Cyrum are all
descendents of people of Darkness. Ryudo asks is Granasaber in this place but
Roan apparently doesn't know. Then he says that they should go and find a
room. Of course you should visit the shop first. Then I suggest you explore
this big city, talk to the people here. And when you're done go to the Inn.

At the Inn the innkeeper tells you that a festival will soon take place.
And King himself will make a speech. Roan is somewhat troubled by the news
and runs home to check things out. Ryudo and the rest will have to spend
the night at the Inn. At the dinner party decides to explore a town and ask
people about the sword. The innkeeper suggests you visit the bazaar and
find a man named Hemble. But Hemble is a strange one so Ryudo and Elena
will have to pretend that they are a happy couple. Elena gets angry at this
turn of events and retires to her room.

In her room, she's sitting and thinking. She feels uneasy and angry with
only God knows who. She then realizes that this is pointless and goes to
sleep. Elena got overexcited and lost control so Millenia appeared.
Millenia knows that something is going on so she writes something on the
mirror.

You now see King of Cyrum in his castle. He says that he no longer can hide
something from the people. He then notices a strange figure. The figure asks
King what is the matter. King thanks the figure for what he has done to his
people. The figure says that all fears of the people of Darkness have
disappeared.

It's morning. Elena is still sleeping, Ryudo tries to wake her up (damn, why
are they sleeping with their clothes on?). She wakes up and looks at the
mirror. There are some words written on the mirror, they say 'Elena, I know
you like Ryudo! Let him know it!'. Downstairs Mareg makes a fantastic
conclusion that more than 2 a couple does not make. So he decides to check
the harbor. Elena is afraid to be alone with Ryudo (is he a maniac or
something?). Anyway, leave the Inn and hit the bazaar. Play the goldfish
game to get a Poff Nut. When you're done with the bazaar visit Hemble. He
tells you that he won't talk without a proper introduction. So Elena and
Ryudo decide to play a couple. Hemble then invites them into the tent.
Inside Hemble starts mocking Ryudo and hitting on Elena. He then tells that
they should play a game of hand wresting to see who's better.

==<Quick Tutorial>-------------------------------------------------------------

==<Arm Wrestling Mini Game - The R Trigger (your assigned button) adds power
to your arm. Pulling the R Trigger hard makes your 'POWER' greater than
Hemble's, but saps your 'ENDURANCE'. If your ENDURANCE drops to 0 you can't
push against Hemble's arm. Keep pushing the A Button (your assigned button)
to restore your ENDURANCE. You can't use the A Button and the R Trigger
(your assigned buttons) at the same time. When 'GO' appears, the game
begins.

Well if it were a normal story-mini-game then you'd be on your way after
defeating Hemble, however don't forget that this is an RPG after all. Hemble
has some items up his sleeve and in order to get them you'll have to defeat
him in his mini game again, again and again. Again, it would be nothing if
the prize items would be all normal, but of all 5 items 3 you already have
(or will have) and you don't have Glass Slippers and Silver Freeze. Now
that's the items you should play for, because you won't get them anywhere
else. So, after the fifth defeat, Hemble will refuse to wrestle with you.
Here are the items:

1 time - Revival Gem
2 times - Hero's Elixir
3 times - Silver Freeze
4 times - Gold Feather
5 times - Glass Slippers
6-oo times - Unavailable (Hey, give the poor guy a brake! OK?!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You will get help from Elena on this one. She'll tell Hemble that his nose hair
are sticking out. He can't believe it and he'll want his mirror. That should
help you beat him.

After the 'battle' Hemble is devastated and very unhappy. He wanted to teach
Skye how to tell that he is magnificent and wonderful. Ryudo asks him about
the Granasaber, but he doesn't know (jerk!) so it was just a waste of time.
Ryudo and Elena leave the tent. Elena got overexcited (as always) and is
feeling quite tired. She decides to sit for a while. Ryudo tells her that he
will buy her a drink. Near Hemble's tent there is a drink tent go there and
buy a drink. You'll have a choice of four different drinks, Love potion,
Power-up, Flower water and hidden. Ryudo will only buy hidden so choose the
fourth option.

All of a sudden Millenia pops up. Ryudo is not very pleased. Millenia says
that she can't stand being left out and gets all over poor Ryudo. He tells
her to stop (stupid!). Millenia then makes some seductive moves and Ryudo
surrenders. Millenia joins the party. Go and listen how Mau sings Millenia
will like it very much, then Roan and Mareg will come. Roan says that there
are some problems in the castle so they must hurry. Also he tells that they
should take the waterway around and get into the castle from the rear gate.


When you gain control cross the bridge. When you do Roan will point to the
boat, board the boat. Your party is in the back of the castle. You meet up
with Paulk. He will tell Prince (?) Roan to be careful and that Menory is
waiting. Roan tells him that he has his friends with him. Enter CYRUM

CYRUM CASTLE

You can explore the castle but you won't find anything useful so I
suggest you head to the room of Demon-Sealing. In that room you'll meet
Menory a Gate Guardian. Roan asks him is everything OK, Menory tells that
the Gate is safe but he feels a strange power behind it. Roan then
introduces Menory to the party. Ryudo asks what is this gate for. Roan
explains that this is the Gates of Darkness and it is said that it'll open
when the people of Darkness will regain their pride. He also tells that a
great power lies beyond those Gates. Menory then tells that King said that
soon there will be no need for the Guardian of the Gate. Roan tells that
his father won't be able to open the Gate without the key. And the key is
his medal. Millenia suggests they go and ask the King. Menory tells you that
he must be in his office on the top floor.

Leave the room and go up the stairs. Continue to Audience Chamber and take
the stairs up to King's office. In the office you meet the king. Roan asks
him about the Gate. King tells Roan that their people are near to regaining
their lost pride and the Gate shall be opened. Roan gets angry and says that
it'll bring the Day of Darkness and that they don't have to be bound by
history nor be the people of Darkness. His father says that the hope for
their people is beyond that Gate. Roan tells that will never hand over the
medal to open it. But the King says that his medal is no longer required and
leaves the room. Ryudo asks about the people of Darkness. Roan then shows

that the true symbol of their country is Valmar's Crest. He tells that his
people fought alongside Valmar long ago, but now no one worships him
anymore. The ground shakes, Roan tells that this must have been the gates.
When you regain control run back to the Demon-Sealing room.

You find Menory dead and the Gate opened. Go through the Gate to UNDERGROUND
PLANT 1.

      Drop items - Mana Insignia, Book of Gales and 2100G
      Special Attacks - Gravity (draws party close to one point, all)
                        Thunder Bullet (cancel effect, some)
                        Ice Bullet (cancel effect, some)
                        Healer (healing, one)
                        Tail Piercer (cancel effect, one)
                        Avenging Claw (powerful attack, one)
                        Infernal Sigh (fire damage, some)
                        Fiora (magic symbol blocks enemy moves)

This one is more annoying than anything else. You see, he can heal himself,
but he only can do this if he has his arms, and you know what that means?
Right! Hit his arms quick and hard, all the usual - Flying Tenseiken,
Dragon Raise, Beast-King Smash and Fallen Wings (maxed out preferably). To
quickly deal with each hand use only the moves that effect one enemy. Kill
one arm, then another. And without his arms his pathetic. He won't be able
to heal, he'll use his Piercing tale and cast the Avenging Claw, now that's
what you should watch out for. His Claw can do a whooping 800HP damage, so
if he damaged some one your character or characters then heal with
Alhealer. When there's only his body left, you'll probably be out of SP,
however your MP should fine. So to finish his body use your most
destructive magic and if someone doesn't have powerful magic you can even
use simple Combos.

After the battle Millenia devours Vslmar's Claw. The bot is lying on the
ground. Roan says that this bot is actually an Automata a fighting machine
created to fight in a war between Good and Evil. Roan is angry with this
factory and with his life. Therefore he goes crazy with his knife and starts
cutting around with it (damn, that's what you get if you give a cold weapon
to children). Thanks to Roan the factory id about to collapse, Ryudo says
that they should get the hell out of there. Now one disagrees. Mareg tells
that this Automata is a victim of Melfice and brings her along.

You're back at the castle. Roan and Ryudo wants to get to the bottom of
this. Then Automata gets up and speaks. Roan says that she will do nothing
without a proper command. Ryudo tells her that she is free (Invalid Command)
but can't compute that. Well they don't care and leave.

Use the SAVE POINT and go to the office. No one is in the office, but you
hear some voices in the next room. Charge the next room. And guess what!
You find Melfice himself in there. Mareg gets all excited as well as Ryudo.
Melfice, on the other hand is cool. The party charges. Melfice beats the
crap out of you with his Wailing Soul Slash. He starts mocking everybody.
Ryudo can't believe his brother. Melfice then hits the king with his
blade (cool blade by the way) and the poor King collapses. Melfice then
says that dreams and hopes are for losers and tells Ryudo that he can prove
it if Ryudo will come to their birth village. Then he escapes through the
window. Millenia is disappointed by the fact that she couldn't get the Horn,
but at least she got the Claw.

Roan talks with his father. The king looks pathetic. Roan decides that this
country needs a true leader and wants to stay home.

Roan makes an announcement to the people. He says them all the truth behind
the Gates of Darkness and the people of Darkness. Then he raises Valmar's
crest. Ryudo says that he couldn't do what Roan does. Elena says that they
should accept the world as it is.

When you gain control leave the castle. When you're about to leave, Roan
calls you. He asks Ryudo if he wants to go to the Garlan Island, Ryudo tells
he does. Roan then tells that he has prepared a ship for them. Everyone
says goodbye to Roan.

Leave the castle. You find Automata standing outside. Mareg tells her again
that she is free. She doesn't get it. Ryudo explains - zero effect. Mareg
then suggests they take her along. Everyone agrees. And so welcome Tio the
automaton to your party.

- Tio -

Tio is an Automaton built in the Cyrum Kingdom Factory in the ancient days to
fight in the battle of Good and Evil. Not a mindless machine nor an AI, a robot
apparently with a soul, nothing more is known about Tio. Possessed by the Claws
of Valmar, her soul was torn apart and now she can't do anything without a
master. Rescued by Ryudo and party she finds her only friends in them and Mareg
as her master. But she soon will have to learn how to trust her own judgment...

Hit the port and find a ship. The ships captain Bakala tells you that when
you're ready he'll take you to the Garlan Island.

==<Quick Tutorial>-------------------------------------------------------------

==<Attention! After you board the 50/50, you won't be able to come back, so
you'll be making a big step further into the game. I strongly recommend you
go and level up. Choose whatever place you think is best for that.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You're in the boat. Elena is talking to Ryudo. She asks him about the Garlan
Island. He tells her that it's north of Camille Sea across the Granacliffs.
Elena than asks about the Granacliffs, Ryudo explains. Bakala showa up and
tells that his boat is good. Mareg starts complaining about some strange
mechanism. It appears to be some kind of pumping device, Bakala says that it'll
help then cross the Granacliffs and that they should keep pumping it for five
days.

When you gain control go and talk to Tio. Ryudo asks her about the Claws
and Melfice but she can't remember anything.

Elena is in her bed and can't sleep. Ryudo shows up and tries to comfort
her. Elena starts complaining about the ship. Ryudo tells that he'll go
and speak with the captain to stop the ship somewhere. Leave the room and
go to the deck to speak with Bakala.

Ryudo tells him that Elena can't take much more of this and that he should
stop. Bakala says that there is no choice and that they can stop at Ceceile
Reef. When party leaves the ship Ryudo tells that they should spend the
night here. Bakala says that it's OK but if the wind picks up than they
should return.

When you gain control just keep going, no forks and no enemies here, only
one path. Ryudo spots some strangely polished stones, Mareg says that he
can't smell the sea in them. Elena tells that she's tired and that thy
should get a move on.

They camp here. At the evening meal conversation, party discuses Ryudo's
family. His parents died long ago, he and his brother Melfice were raised
by the village chef. Then they go to sleep.

In the middle of the night Ryudo wakes up. He's worried about Elena, Skye
tells him that she's back there. When you gain control go back there.

Ryudo finds Elena sitting and watching the sea. She says that Valmar's
moon is haunting her. Elena tells him that she's not so naive anymore
and Ryudo will praise her for that. Elena loves the world and the people
that live in it. Ryudo proclaims that they will cross the Granacliffs
tomorrow. They talk a little bit more and then go to sleep.

In the morning something is wrong. It's the monsters. Thy hatched from
those 'polished stones' that actually were eggs. The party can't escape
because the tide came so you'll have to fight.

Damn, these crabs are ridiculously and pathetically easy. Use whatever
destructive one-enemy moves you've got, to kill one. And then just finish
the other. The only thing that you should watch out is Scissors Storm, but
it hits only one character so heal if necessary.

After the fight make your way back to the ship. Board it. You approach the
Granacliffs. Bakala explains that in order to cross those cliffs they'll
have to glide. The pump that Mareg was pumping was for that purpose.
You'll se an CG movie where 50/50 transforms into gliding 50/50 and glides
through the Granacliffs. So finally you've reached the Garlan Island.

When you enter the village Ryudo tells that nothing have changed. Elena
thinks that this is a quiet village. Some boy shows up and starts talking
crap about Ryudo (No! you can't waste him). Go up the stairs and will get
a warm welcome from the village chief and Gatta Ryudo's 'best friend'. They
tell him to get out. Ryudo says that as soon as he finishes the business he
will. They leave. Elena is offended by such poor treatment towards Ryudo.
Ryudo doesn't care. Ryudo then suggests they search for Melfice in his old
house. Go there, it's the house with the nailed doors (is it plagued or
something?). Mareg and Tio leaves for the Inn.

Gatta shows up and starts remembering the past. Then he attacks but Ryudo
beats him down. Ryudo says that he can't change a thing and leaves. Elena
tries to comfort Gatta but he says that she doesn't understand and tells her
to beat it.

Go to the Inn and choose 'Let us stay just for tonight...'. Mareg and Tio
show up and tell that Melfice is in the village. The innkeeper chickens
out and blaims Ryudo for bringing Melfice here. Anyway he lets them stay
tonight.

Elena is in her room. She can't get to sleep and keeps thinking about Ryudo
and What has happened with him in the past. Skye appears and flies towards
the window. He tells Elena that he'll tell her about Ryudo and his past.

Ryudo and Melfice were both born in this village and when their parents
died the village chief took them in and trained them to become a swordsmen.
Eventually Melfice became the greatest swordsmen in the village. Ryudo had
a friend called Gatta, and both Ryudo and Gatta envied Melfice his
abilities. Reena (hmm... Reena eh? Yes well (:E) was the chiefs daughter
and she was to become Melfice's wife. The future seemed bright for them
all until one fatal day. A huge storm began and ground trembled beneath
the Temple where Idol was. Reena went there to check things out but never
returned. Then the village chief sent Melfice and a few others to look for
her. Ryudo also wanted to go but he was not allowed, instead he secretly
followed them. When Ryudo got there he became the witness of a terrible
tragedy, Melfice, his brother slaughtered everyone including Reena and
stole the idol the Justice Sword. Ryudo could not believe it, in a flash
of a moment his hopes and dreams were broken and because of his brother he
was banished from the village and from lives of the villagers. He then met
Skye and became a Geohound, since then he was always afraid to trust
anyone or anything (man, that's what I call a hard youth...).

The next morning party decides to go to the Grail Mountain to look for
Melfice. Leave the Inn and the village. Hit the World Map and choose GRAIL
MOUNTAIN ROAD 1.

This place is horrible. Mareg says that his village looks the same.
Then Gatta comes and gives Ryudo a message from Melfice saying that Ryudo
should come to the Plateau of Memories.

Use the SAVE POINT and go up round the rock to take 1000G. Go back and
round the crack in the ground and all the way through the path, across the

Paint near the broken bridge. Then return and go up. Go up and then to the
left to take the Potion of Azure. Then go right and near the broken bridge
go up. Activate the grave switch and the river will sink. Go back to the

Regenerator, don't waste your SP and MP on them, instead concentrate on
Melfice. Use Flying Tenseiken, Beast-King Smash and Fast Dance-Whirl, while
Elena should use nothing but healing and recovery magic, like Alheal, Cure
and Droplets of life, because Melfice is very unpredictable, he can blast
you with his Wailing Soul Slash and Demon Horde Slash or he can just hit
you with his normal attack. Try to reach stability in this battle, keep
using those moves on Melfice and watch very closely your HP, if it gets
less then 1000 heal immediately. His Wailing Soul Slash is the most
dangerous move, it can do a major 1000HP damage, also his Demon Horde
Slash can do about 700~800HP damage to a number of characters. His magic
spells are crappy and useless, they only give you time to prepare your
attacks. With a little luck I'm sure you'll do it.

After the battle (No! Millenia didn't devour the Horns of Valmar) Melfice
realizes his mistake and apologizes to Ryudo for everything and tells him
that the Granasaber lies to the east from here. Ryudo can see that Melfice
is back to normal and doesn't want him to die. But still, Melfice dies.
Then something strange happens to Ryudo. He grabs his arm and some weird
purple magic surrounds him, Ryudo can't control himself and points his
blade on Elena. He's about to slice her up but stops and drops unconscious.

Back at the village. Melfice has been buried. The village chief says that
it is improper to be glad of someone's death, even Melfice's. Gatta then
starts lecturing them.

Back at the Inn Tio says that Ryudo has been infected with Valmar's Horns.
Tio wants just to exterminate Ryudo. Mareg on the other hand doesn't.

In the room you can see that Ryudo is completely possessed y the Horn.
Elena is worried about him and calls Millenia for help. Millenia says that
she doesn't care for Ryudo and wants only to devour the Horn. Millenia
appears and she is dead serious about doing it. She spreads her wings,
prepares the magic and... she can't do it. She decides to help Ryudo after
all. Millenia summons Elena and tells her that they have to help Ryudo both.

You see a vision from Ryudo's past. He and Gatta are practicing. Melfice is
also there. Then Gatta and Melfice disappear. Then it's the scene where
Ryudo discovers how Melfice kills everyone. However, Melfice tells him that
Reena was possessed be the Horn and thus had to be killed. Then Millenia
appears and says that Melfice is the one who wanted the power of the Horn.
Millenia then tells Ryudo to fight Melfice because he's in control of the
Horns.

Now it's the scene where Reena lies on the ground pierced by the sword of
Melfice. She starts to speak with Ryudo. Then Elena joins the conversation.


Now Ryudo fights Melfice. He's dead serious on defeating Valmar. Elena and
Millenia appear. Ryudo then cuts through Melfice and thus relieves him of
his suffering. Melfice is back to normal and thanks Ryudo for saving him.
He tells that he wanted power to destroy Valmar so badly, that he gave into
it and it devoured his soul.

The dream ends and Elena is praying to Lord Granas to save Ryudo. Then he
wakes up and tells that he is fine. Mareg and Tio show up. Tio says that
they are like family now, therefore she stayed.

Everyone's back at the grave of Melfice. Then everyone makes a dramatic
speech and Gatta gives Ryudo a Friends Necklace. The party then decides to
go find the Divine Sword. Go back to the port and speak with Bakala. Ryudo
says that they once again need his ship. Bakala says he's ready. Ryudo
tells him that they need to go east alongside the Granacliffs. Bakala then
tells them that they'll be heading then to the Great Cleft Island of Arachna.

Elena is on the deck of 50/50 in the middle of the night. She feels uneasy
for accepting help from Millenia the Wings of Valmar. Ryudo shows up and
ask her what is the matter. She says that it's OK. Elena then asks Ryudo
why Millenia saved him, but he doesn't know. Ryudo tells her that Millenia
will show up tonight anyway, so he'll thank her then. Elena goes wild when
she hears that (is she jealous or something?). But she realizes that she's
a bit out of line here and runs away. Ryudo doesn't know what to think.

Party reaches shores of the Arachna (now this shore reminds me Grandia
I). Ryudo thanks the captain for everything he has done to help them. Mareg
says that he knows these places so there is nothing to be worried about.
Before you leave, Bakala gives Ryudo advice.

Walk along the shore and save at the SAVE POINT. Mareg says that he's from
around here and that he wants to visit his home village. Ryudo says that
they'll come along and asks him what will he do after that. Mareg doesn't
know until he speaks with the chief.

Continue the path and you'll see a huge plant biting the other side of the
river. Go across using this plant and head up. Open the tree gate and take
3000G. Keep going until you see another huge plant, cross to the other side.
Dead end to the left so go right (and don't mind those weird plants, their
just stupid). Avoid the steaming tree (it'll poison you) and near the big
rock open the tree gate to take the Aromatic Root. Continue the path until
you reach another huge hungry plant, using the plant get yourself across.

Now it's time for an upward mobility. Get the Healing Incense and go by that
huge root, don't mind those minor branches they're useless. Climb down and
near the huge rock open the tree gate to bit the crap out of some Scaly
Warriors (for SC, MC, EXP and fun). Take the other root. When you reach a
root-fork, take the down path to get Sylph's Robe. Go back, take the other
path and go down. Take the left path through the poisonous plant and go to
GHOSST FOREST WEST 2.

Go through the root and when you'll see a root-fork, go down to activate
the flower bridge. Climb the root and cross that flower bridge to get
1000G. Don't go up, it's a dead end, instead go down. Activate the lower
bridge, take Divine Talisman and climb the root to use the bridge you've
activated. Go down the root and activate the green plant to make another
bridge, go through that bridge. Open the tree gate and take the Quake Stone,
then take the thinner root, because the other one is a dead end. Activate
the flower bridge and take the Baobab Fruit hidden within. Go back and keep
walking until you reach another green plant, activate it to make a bridge
and go down.

You reach a place destroyed by the Claws. Mareg tells that it's the job of
Melfice. Mareg doesn't understand how can darkness bring misfortune and
destruction. Elena, OF COURSE, protest with all her little might. She says
that Darkness is naturally the source of all evil. Mareg then smacks down
all that she believes by saying that Light and Darkness are no different
than Wind and Fire both bring happiness and suffering. But Mareg wants to
puzzle them no further until they reach the village.

When you regain control climb the root. When you reach the root-fork, take
the left path to get the Super Mogay Bomb. Go back, take the right path and
make your way into the World Map. Choose NANAN VILLAGE.

When you enter, the villager immediately recognizes Mareg. Mareg tells
that Ryudo and the others are his friends. Villager says that if it is so
then they are friends of the village. Mareg tells that they should make
haste to the village Elder.

When you gain control explore the village and visit the shop. Then go meet
the village Elder. He's glad that Mareg has returned and invites you to come
inside. The village Elder asks Ryudo why does he search for the blade, Ryudo
says that it's because he doesn't know anything, he wants to start feeling
things. The Elder says that it's the same with his people, they think that
life must be felt and that not all Light is good and not all Darkness is
evil. Elena stars getting out of hand, Ryudo calms her down. Mareg tells
that things are getting restless these days and that they should investigate
it. Village Elder agrees. He asks Ryudo and the party stay here tonight.
Ryudo agrees. The village Elder sends Mareg and Tio to the square and asks
Ryudo and Elena for a favor. They accept.

You're at the Forbidden Hut. The village Elder says that in order to enter
one must be strong both of mind and of body. Therefore, he asks you to do
this honor. Ryudo and Elena enter the Forbidden room.

Anyway, when you finish with your nuts, I mean the nut-hunting, go and speak
with the village Elder. He tells Ryudo that they should participate in the
feast as well. Ryudo says that he has got no talents, however Elena can
sing.

Elena starts her song and everybody is impressed. Skye starts pestering
Ryudo about women.

In the meantime, Mareg teaches Tio how to be her own master. Mareg tells her
to call him Mareg from this point on. She tries to do it and she's
successful. Mareg then suggests they get a drink.

Elena finished her song. Everyone thanks her and they feel like they need to
sing also. So the villagers start their song. Then Elena invites Ryudo to
visit the spring.

When you gain control head to the Nanan Spring. At the spring Elena tells
that she liked singing to the villagers. In addition she feels very
exciting about it (she's getting excited!). Ryudo then thanks for helping
him with the Horns and says that he felt her in his heart. She's very
special to him. Elena is startled and says that she's thirsty. She runs to
the springs to get some water. Ryudo feels confused.

At the spring, Elena feels that she can't respond to Ryudo. Millenia appears
and starts mocking Elena. She says that Elena could not love anyone else but
Lord Granas. Millenia says that she loves Ryudo and gives him her life and
body. Ten Millenia takes over Elena's body.

Ryudo is tired of waiting. He decides to check things out. Go check it out
but you won't find anything. When Ryudo returns Millenia appears. She says
that she's been dying to see Ryudo. Ryudo says that Millenia is here one
second and gone the other, so there is not enough time. Millenia says that
she's here now and that Ryudo should speak. Then she grabs his arm and just,
you know, wants to do it or something (damn, I'm not good at this). She
keeps telling him how in love she is. Then Ryudo finally cracks and says
that he actually does love Millenia, but he feels the same way about Elena.
(man, it's like 2 in 1 for him). Ryudo says that he can't choose (Oi! poor
him). Then Millenia does a smart move. She kisses Ryudo and quickly shifts
back into Elena, so that Elena could see what happened. Elena thinks that
Ryudo chose Millenia and runs away.

In the morning, party leaves the village. The village Elder thanks then and
says that they can return here whenever they wish. The party sets out for
the Great Rift. Leave the village and select GHOSS FORST EAST.

==<Quick Tutorial>-------------------------------------------------------------

Now that you have the Miracle Scales all the monster stats will contain
doubled G. If you want to know the actual G earned you'll have to divide it
by 2.

Ryudo charges it with all his might! Bad idea, the wall won't even budge.

This 'Leck Guardian' is actually some kind of Minotaur zombie. And those cats
must be Troglodytes in disguise. Anyway they are easy. First, make sure that
Ryudo's max SP are at least 198 so you could do 2 Sky Dragon Slashes in a row.
After those the cats should be wasted leaving the Guardian all alone. When that
happens brutally attack him with all your might! He's done.

After the fight use the SAVE POINT and then go up. Activate the red pillar
in the middle. Go all the way left, take 1200G and go up to activate another
red pillar. Return to the main room and go right from there. Go up into the
room, take the Exorcism Bow and activate third and the last of the red
pillars. The door in the main room has opened, go through it and prepare for
yet another Boss Battle.

BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: 2 Naga Queen
      HP - 12500
      SC - 0
      MC - 1280
      EXP - 750
      Drop items - Star Egg and 1600G
      Special attacks - Freezing Eye (Mov -2, line)
                        Fiora (move block effect, one)
                        Blizzard Edge (low damage, some)

Is this a joke Boss Battle or something? They are nothing! Just pump em up
with the following moves exactly 2 of each and they won't be able to do
anything at all (well that's what happened with me anyway): Sky Dragon
Slash, Tornado, White Apocalypse and Beast-King Blast. That should do to
waste them.

After the battle go up the stairs. Then head left (watch the lasers) and
into the room to take the Halo Armor. Then go to the right room and take the
Mystic Potion. Then go back and go into the DEMON'S LAW CONTROL ROOM.

DEMON LAW, CONTROL ROOM
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Items: None
Enemies: Boss
Shops: None

You find yourself in the control room. Another automaton is there and she
tells that Tio should waste the party and resurrect Valmar. Tio won't. Then
automaton tells that Tio needs repairs and repairs Tio with new orders to
eliminate the threat. Tio is ready to do it but behold Mareg's magical
voice! Apparently with mechanical properties his words simply un-repair Tio
right back into her senses! Magic non other! Anyway the automata decides
that Tio is defective and that it's time for DECOMISSIONING!

BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: Tio Clone
      HP - 32500
      SC - 4000
      MC - 4000
      EXP - 900
      Drop items - Balor
      Special attacks - Lotus Flower (cancel effect, line)
                        Tornado (high damage, all)
                        Shhh! (magic block effect, all)
                        Howl (some)

Now this battle can be long and tiresome but it can be short and easy. You
see, attacking her physically is a brainless act, because whenever you
attack her with combo she'll usually evade->shift->counter. Plus she has a
high evade, MOV and speed. Here's what you've got to do: Use Flying
Tenseiken, Beast-King Smash, Fast Dance-Whirl and Impact Bomb (yes! Impact
Bomb because you'll need the SP for Droplets of Life) she can't dodge those.
Don't try to dispel her Shhh! She will do it again and again, just leave it
be, you'll manage without magic. Tornado is the move that you should watch
out for, it can hit you with about 800~1000HP damage, so heal with Droplets
of Life if needed. Keep using those moves, your SP should be enough, but if
it runs out you could actually use simple combos but only with the whole
party, remember that!

After the fight Tio Clone is wasted. Tio says that in order to turn off the
barrier you'll have to smash the control panel. Go up and do it. Tio says
that barrier should be down now. Leave the Demon's Law.

Outside the party finds that the wind barrier is gone. And the almighty
Granasaber is in all it's beauty. Everyone is amazed.

When you gain control proceed to THE GREAT RIFT 4. There party can get a
better view of the saber. And then Selene appears! She goes talking her
crazy-fanatic stuff, but now not about Granas but about revival of Valmar.
I just knew it, she's crazy! Then she cuts her hand and you'll see an
CG movie where the Body of Valmar is revived through the blood of Selene.
Then she sacrifices her Holy Knight and goes away.

Well now she's done it! The body is revived and the party is left to deal
with it. Elena then calls for Millenia's help. Millenia appears and says
that she is going to take on that huge behemoth, and that she needs your
help. So without any further delay Millenia just grabs the rest of the
party and flies into the VALMAR'S BODY.

      Special attacks - Zap (lightening damage, some)
                        Zap All (lightning damage, all)
                        Suck in (draws enemies, all)
                        Strangulation (ATK -1, DEF -1, ACT -1, MOV -1, one)

The almighty Valmar Core is an easy foe. Start using your most deadly All
moves and soon his tentacles will be history. And when that happens
concentrate on the Core with you most powerful One moves only. Spells like
Zap, Zap All and Suck In totally suck. However he has a very good and
powerful One move, it's the Strangulation, it does a major damage plus it
decreases all your stats by 1. But it won't help him because it is a One
skill and he doesn't use it so often.

He he... 'Suck in' sounds kind of perverted, no? *ahem*... well...forget it!

After the battle Valmar's Body is about to fall apart.

Outside, Millenia devours the Body and shifts back into Elena. The party is
overjoyed that they finally found the Granasaber, but they don't know how to
carry it. Then Tio tells that she can operate the Granasaber (Saber my ass!
This thing is an outer space starship and none other). The party shifts into
the Granasaber.

Inside, Tio operates it and you'll see a very cool CG movie how the
Granasaber blitz away into horizon.

The party is in the Granasaber; everyone is amazed by the flight. Tio
tells Ryudo that she has set an auto-landing on St. Heim Papal State. Ryudo
says that's OK. Ryudo is still thinking about what Selene said and about
Zera, but Elena doesn't know about either of them. She feels tired and
wants to rest somewhere. Tio takes her to a room.

Elena is in her room, she's worried about Ryudo. She fears what Zera might
do to Ryudo should he present himself with the Horns of Valmar. Then
Millenia appears and tells Elena that Zera is actually a bad person and
that she should not listen to him. Elena thinks that Millenia lies (damn,
is she naive or what?). Millenia tells her that she should think about
Ryudo and that she can't be happy and safe at the same time. Elena of
course disagrees. Then Elena starts screaming around that Millenia is
Wings of Valmar and that she hates her, then she tries really, really hard
and Millenia disappears. Elena is convinced that they shall not meet again.

Ryudo is worried about Elena. He thinks that she should be a little happier.
Mareg tells him to cool down. Tio serves the tea.

AND THEN SUDDENLY! The Day of Darkness! It is here. Everyone, especially
Elena, freaks out. Ryudo doesn't even understand what-a-hell is happening
here.

Anyway the party lands in St. Heim Papal State to check things out.

The townsfolk tell you that the Day of Darkness came and that the
Cathedral Knights, the righteous protectors of the God's children and
Holy guardians of the peace are slaughtering people left and right in
Front of the Cathedral!!!

It's time for some Knight-ass kicking time. When you gain control, leave
the pastures and make your way into the town. Hey, check out the local
shop it's got some new goods. He he, I guess no Day of Darkness will stop
the business!

You'll see a scene where the Knights are having fun with the townsfolk.
Ryudo understands that something is wrong here and decides to interfere.
After the fight (which probably ended after one Sky Dragon Slash) the
party discovers that those Knights are not human. Elena tells that they
should hurry to the Cathedral to meet Zera. She speaks truly.

At the Cathedral you are warm welcomed by a bunch of Knights, but they are
called off by Selene. Ryudo asks if Selene ordered the murder, she says
that it wasn't her, unfortunately? Sigh, she's totally lost it, then she
starts her Selene-style-fanatical-crap I won't be writing it because I
don't understand what's she talking about. Anyway, after her 'speech' she
drops herself right onto the swords of her minions. All that's left is a
Dark Valmar's Heart with an evil desire to kill!

                        Burnflame (fire damage, some)
                        Healer (heal HP, one)

This guy shouldn't be much of a problem. You could eliminate his eyes first,
but you could also leave them be. You see, later when his HP will be low his
eyes will start healing him, and that's annoying. So by destroying his eyes
you would be doing yourself a favor. Well either way, concentrate Sky Dragon
Slash, Fast-Dance Whirl and Beast-King Smash on the Heart. And leave Elena
for healing and status dispelling only. He doesn't have a big-damage spells,
but he's full of status disorder spells, so one character assigned for
healing-dispelling-strengthening is good idea. That should do the trick.

After the fight Elena absorbs the Heart of Valmar. Ryudo is amazed, how
could she do that? Elena then explains that Zera sent her on a mission to
collect all the pieces of Valmar and then he would use the Granasaber to
destroy Elena and Valmar within her. Ryudo thinks this plan suck. Elena says
that she doesn't want his heart to be destroyed so he shouldn't come and
rescue her. But Ryudo is Ryudo, when you gain control hit the Cathedral.

In the main hall you meet Oro, he starts talking about Zera and some Holy
Door. Anyway, he's dead meat and you should proceed into the door behind the
altar to use the lift to go up inside Zera's secret room.

Elena and Zera are already there. Elena asks Zera about the Heat of Valmar
inside Selene and he says that he knew. Then Ryudo and others show up.
Elena tells Zera to get it over with, but has something to show to Ryudo.
He invites you to the Forbidden Room. Follow him.

In the room, Zera explains the 'truth' behind Granas, Valmar and the Battle
of Good and Evil. Well can't say much about it. You'll get an excellent CG
movie about it, explaining 'everything'. So that's the deal, Granas was
defeated in that distant Battle and now Valmar is about to be reborn. Mareg
is angry that they searched for Granasaber for nothing. Zera tells him that
you can never defeat a God with a saber of a dead God. Thus, the
resurrection of Valmar is inevitable. Elena is devastated, all her hopes
are lost and she is convinced that this is not the Pope Zera she knew. Zera
then gets wild and tells that his ultimate goal from the very start was
the ***_THE REVIVAL OF VALMAR!!!_***. And he's going to use Elena
for that (fat jerk!). He grabs her and they teleport to the Moon.

Ryudo is furious; Zera has kidnapped Elena. Tio tells that they could use
the Granasaber to get to the Moon, but there is not enough energy and
Ryudo's Horns might awaken. Nevertheless, Ryudo is determined on saving
Elena.

Leave the cursed and useless Cathedral and board the Granasaber. You'll see
a CG movie how the party flies to the Valmar's Moon.

Make use of the SAVE POINT. When you reach the first turn take it, and cut
through the thing that blocks your way. When you reach a fork go right and
take The BIG TREASURE CHEST with Lion Harp, Lion Boots and Leo Rex Battleax
in it. Return to the fork and take the other path. When you reach a fork go
left and grab 2000G. GO back and head up and then left to reach another
fork. Go left and take the Potion of Azure, return and head right. Eventually
you'll reach a fork, go left to take 6000G then continue down the path. Cut
through the thing and reach yet another fork, ignore it and continue to
another fork, go right to take the Thor Stone. Go back and head left.

Now you'll have to do some trick here in order to proceed. When you reach a
fork head down the right tunnel and activate the blue-brain-thing. That
thing made one portion of the bridge for you. Go back and through the left
tunnel to do the same with another part of the blue-brain-thing. After the
bridge has been completed, cross it.

Take the Silver Feather and continue up to Valmar's Moon 2.

Some bizarre thing blocks your way. You know what to do, cut it! Go up. If
you cut that thing to your right and go through the tunnel... there will be
nothing, so don't do it. Instead, go left, cut through the thing and take
2000G then head all the way down and take the Demon Ash. Return and head up
through the tunnel. When toy reach a fork go right to take the BIG TREASURE
CHEST containing Silver Feather, Miracle Elixir and Mystic Veil. Go back and
take the other way. When you reach a fork go left in order to get the Indigo
Potion. Then go all the way right. Cutting through the right thing near the
wall is pointless so don't do it. However you'll need to cut through the
middle thing to continue, but it's blocked by a wall. So go down and through
the left tunnel. You'll reach the other side of the wall, grab Panacea and
cut the thing. Return, use the SAVE POINT and make your way into the
Valmar's Moon 3.

See those purple things on the floor? By stepping on them you activate
various mechanisms, but some maybe hollow. Anyway to be sure step on each
you come across. Go all the way right and step on the purple thing to lower
the pillar and take the Moonstone Armor. Then go straight up and step on
another purple thing to construct a bridge, cross it. Go right and activate
the purple thing to take the Reflect Helm. Go up and activate another purple
thing to lower the pillar and take the Golden Potion. Then head left and
take the Scarlet Potion along the way. Go through the ark and up the path.
Take 2000G and activate the purple switch that will create a bridge, cross
it. Go down the path, see the Evil Maneuver standing on the pillar like he
owns the place? Activate the purple thing near him and he'll encounter you.
So instead take 6000G and proceed. Keep walking until you reach a Scarlet
Potion. Take it and activate the purple switch, Huge rock will create a
bridge. Cross to the other side. Take 2000G and proceed the path. Take the
BIG TREASURE CHEST that has Scattering Stone, Meteor Scroll and Moonlight
Tiara in. Jump across the ark and go use the SAVE POINT. Then jump down to
Valmar's Womb.

VALMAR'S WOMB
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Items: 1 Elena
Enemies: Boss
Shops: None

The party is in a weird room. Mareg spots Elena and Zera below. Zera is
explaining Elena that the world is doomed because there is no Light and in
order to save the world Valmar has to be revived. Elena sees no point in
living any further, Zera tells her that he'll relief her of her pain by
removing the Wings of Valmar within her.

Ryudo gets really angry (wow!) but can't do anything about it. Then some
bizarre thing comes from below and attacks the party. Prepare for a Boss
fight!

BOSS BATTLE

Boss: Egg Guardian
      HP - 28000
      SC - 10000
      MC - 10000
      EXP - 2000
      Drop items - Angel's Robe and 3600G
      Special attacks - Runner (ACT +1, one)
                        Speedy (ACT +2, one)
                        Diggin'(DEF +1, all)
                        Howlnado (wind damage and confusion effect, all)
                        Wailing Sickle (damage, all)
                        Demon Summoning (revives all Bits)

      4-oo Bit
      HP - 4800
      Drop items - 900G
      Special attacks - Desperate Blow (damage, one)

This 'Egg Guardian' gives me the creeps! Ignore the Bits! You might want to
waste them after they hit you with their Desperate Blow, but it's useless,
he'll use the Demon Summoning and revive them again. His magic like Runner,
Speedy and Diggin' are useless, plus he's slow you should have plenty time
for Flying Tenseiken, Fast Dance-Whirl and Beast-King Smash. Wailing Sickle
is the only attack you should watch out for, because it does a fair damage
to all your characters. Of course, you could substitute Flying Tenseiken
with Sky Dragon Slash, but it will eventually kill all the Bits, and after
he revives them you'll have to deal with them again. So the choice is up to
you, but always watch you HP.

After the fight Ryudo calls Elena but she doesn't ant him to be here, she
just wants to die. Zera says that all the preparations for the revival are
complete. Then he 'summons' Millenia into the green sphere. Zera proclaims
that the time has come, but apparently Millenia has second thoughts. She
starts lecturing Elena about this and that (watch the event dammit!). Well
anyway Millenia doesn't want to become a Valmar anymore, instead she just
wants to be with Ryudo (unlike some songstress that I know!). Zera, of
course, is confused. He believes that her wrong decision is because of the
feeble souls that she has devoured. Anyway, Zera doesn't seem to care, he
says that all will be as planned. You'll se a CG movie how the Moon starts
spitting fire and monsters are coming from the craters. Zera wants to become
the WILL of Valmar and create the perfect world. Millenia can't do anything
because she's paralyzed and is being devoured. Ryudo keeps screaming
pointlessly. Millenia then casts her final magic to save Elena from Valmar.
She tells that she loves Ryudo and that they should live, then she sends
them all away from here.

The party is outside. Ryudo is devastated by the loss of Millenia. Mareg
brings him to his senses and they all decide to go back to the Granasaber.

When you gain control follow the only fork-free path towards the Granasaber.
Along the way you'll encounter various Valmar monsters. Eventually the
enemies will get really pesky and Mareg stays behind to hold them while the
rest of the party tries to board the Granasaber. You'll see a CG movie. Well
Mareg is dead, but the power of his will gave the rest of the party a chance
to live. He was indeed a brave warrior. The rest of the party escapes home.

But when you'll want to leave you'll see a CG movie about the town being

When you enter the city it's totally wasted. Almost everyone is dead.
Visit the shop for some new goods. Then proceed towards the castle, there
you'll meet Roan and his guards being attacked by a Valmar Young x2. After
a short greeting battle starts. Waste em quick.

After the fight Roan wants some answers. Ryudo can't tell anything. Roan
understands that the situation is not very bright, so he invites everyone
to the castle to talk.

You're in the castle. Ryudo and Elena are in the room. Elena starts fer talk
about the poor Granas. She can't get over his death and Zera's betrayal.
Well, she needs a reality check and Ryudo tries to comfort her. Anyway, a
soldier comes and tells you that Roan is waiting in his office.

When you gain control hit the office.

In the office Roan and his consul are talking about something. Then the
consul leaves the room and Roan starts chatting with Tio about her heart
and about love?

When Ryudo and Elena arrive Roan decides to decide their next move. Roan
believes that Valmar is still incomplete; therefore he suggests they......
... run away!!! Ryudo obviously disagrees (me to!). Roan tells that the
Horns inside Ryudo might awaken and then all is lost. But Ryudo is still
stubborn, he wants to avenge the deaths of Millenia and Mareg. Elena cheers
everyone up by saying that the Day of Darkness has passed, Valmar is
revived and the Granasaber is lost (gee, thanks sister!).

Ryudo believes that the Horns that are inside him is the only thing that can
do battle with Valmar and that Millenia and Mareg gave their lives to
protect that weapon. However everyone's afraid that Ryudo will end up like
Melfice. Also they don't know how to activate the Horns. The party decides
to leave this place. Please do so.

On your way out you'll encounter various peasants asking for help, ignore
them. However, when you'll reach the bridge Valmar will SPOT you (wow! now
that's an EYE!).Valmar Young x2 will appear out of nowhere, kill them.

Leave the city and choose Raul Hills.

As it was in GRANDIA I, there is a special stage here also; the Raul Hills.

OK, here you'll have 2 objectives and 2 places to go. The first objective
is to practice. This place is actually a great place for practice, the
Devils are great for SC, MC and G and Snow Leopards are excellent for EXP.
Try reaching level 55. The second objective is to collect all the items
and 1 Mana Egg.

And the 2 places are Raul Hills 1, where you find the first 4 (useless)
items and the maze area, also in Raul Hills 1 where you'll find the rest of
the items and the Fairy Egg.

Use the boat ant then head left to Raul Hills 1. Take the 'Ultimate' set of
'Ultimate' weapons (man, those must have been left behind by 'Ultimate'
warriors when they fled the enemies). Useless Staff, Zero Broadsword, Rusty
Hoop and Dull Knife .I mean, what's up with those weapons? They are only
good for your item collection. Anyway you're done here, leave and make your
way to the maze.

In the maze area you'll find the rest of items (it's a good thing they're
not junk, but on the contrary their most useful). Keep exploring the maze
and collecting one item at a time: Lore of Magic, Platinum Feather, Energy
Charm, Sonic Belt, Demon Necklace, Astral Miracle and Soul of a Hero. In
the end climb on the tower and grab the Fairy Egg.

In this area you'll encounter the Devil creatures. Umm... what's the deal? I
keep reading the other FAQ's that these monsters are EXTRA difficult, but I
really don't think so. They have 2 very dangerous spells, BOOM! And
BA-BOOM!. While you'll probably get over BOOM! The BA-BOOM! Spell will most
definitely kill your party or at least they'll be half-dead. So how do I
avoid it? You ask? Easy it's the Tight Dress. Yes! The Tight Dress. Remember
this peace of equipment that you could get by defeating Nyarmot? Well, it
can neutralize any spell directed towards the wearer, which means that any
BOOM! or BA-BOOM! spell that might be cast on the wearer will be nullified.
Useful, eh? This item has only 2 minor disadvantages. First, it can only be
equipped by the females (Elena and Tio) and second, it also disables the
spells of the wearer. But you can still use the moves. So anyway, even if
the guys will drop dead the chicks will be fighting! Plus, if that happens
you'll be able to use Droplets of Life to restore and revive all.

And for the majority of you, who don't have any Tight Dresses: GO GET SOME!
Nyarmots can be encountered right here in Raul Hills!

After all the items have been collected, you're done! Leave this place and
choose Cyrum Kingdom, South (unless you want to practice some more).

==<Quick Tutorial--------------------------------------------------------------

Now that you have the Astral Miracle all the monster stats will contain
doubled SC. If you want to know the actual SC earned you'll have to divide
it by 2.

Now that you have Soul of a Hero all the monster stats will contain doubled
EXP. If you want to know the actual EXP earned you'll have to divide it
by 2.

Elena is down; Ryudo says that he'll kill everyone for violating the dead.
Tio says that Ryudo should calm down or the Horns within him will be
activated.

Then you'll se a CG movie how Valmar is swallowing up the Cathedral and
some nasty looking creature is being born.

Ryudo tells that running away is pointless, everyone agrees. Then Roan
comes up with an idea, he says that Cyrum royals have a mausoleum and that
they could find something useful about the people of Darkness and Valmar
from there.

When you regain control hit the Mausoleum.

At the mausoleum Roan starts snooping around, but nothing happens. Then Tio
walks up the stairs and tells that this is the door but in order to open it
a medal is required. Apparently Roan's Medal is the key, Tio takes it and
opens the door. Leave the mausoleum and enter BIRTHPLACE OF THE GODS.

     The SAVE POINT, use it. Go up and read the statue. It says:

           He who worships Light shall gather around the wonder
           of the Blue Earth, the Red Sun, and the Yellow Moon,
           then scatter. However, O he who falsely worships Light
           and is discontent in its power, he shall know only
           permanent midnight.

Go right and collect 2500G, return and head left through the tunnel. Keep
going the only path you've got until you reach a fork. Take the right path
and grab 7500G. Return and head the other way. Follow the path and then go
down the stairs. There will be entrance to the Birthplace of the Gods 2 but
you cannot enter yet. Instead go right and use the blue ball, it will open
and close some doors. Ignore stairs up, instead go left and activate the
device near the pillar with armor. The device will shoot something and
eventually the pillar will lower and you'll be able to take Hero's Cuirass.
Go all the way back to the SAVE POINT and trough the path with 2500G. When
you reach the bridge take the right path and in it's end take the Flame
Stone. Return and cross the bridge. Follow all the way through the only
path you have until you reach the room with the entrance to the Birthplace
of the Gods 2. Enter it.

Go straight up but don't use the stairs, instead go right in the room with
4 big pillars take the Quake Stone. Return and go up the stairs and through
the yellow door then go through the blue door and take the Scarlet Potion.
Return and take the other path. Past the yellow doors will be stairs, go
down abuse the SAVE POINT and continue to the Birthplace of the Gods 3.

Take the stairs up and then go left. In the next room you will encounter
Mini Boss x2.

MINI BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: 2 Dual Fist
        HP - 19000
        SC - 6400
        MC - 0
        EXP - 1800
        Drop items - Elf King Boots and 2400G
        Special attacks - Blizzard Rise (ACT -1, some)
                          Freeze Down (sleep effect, one)

Umm... they suck. Use all the destructive moves like Sky Dragon Slash,
Tornado, White Apocalypse and whatever magic with Roan. They shouldn't be
any problem.

After the 'hard' battle proceed through the blue door and across the bridge.
Activate the Yellow Ball. Return to the blue door and enter the yellow door
next to it. In the end of the path take the Panacea and return to the Yellow
Ball. Cross the bridge and take the yellow door. Ignore the path to the
right it's totally useless. Move the block and activate the shooting device
to open the hidden door. (Gee... that's a 'difficult' puzzle isn't it? My
head still hurts after those brain-damaging Wild Arms puzzles, I tell ya)
And in the hidden door there are even 4 TREASURE CHESTS! Loot them all!
They include the following: Gale Stone, Valkyrie Dress, Angel's Ring and
Indigo Potion. Go back all the way and through the blue door, take 2500G and
go aaal the way back to the Birthplace of the Gods 2.

Go through the yellow door and this time YOU! will be encountered by a Mini
Boss x2. Oh, the irony!

MINI BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: 2 Guardian
      HP - 17000
      SC - 0
      MC - 4000
      EXP - 2000
      Drop items - Phoenix Ring, Omnipotent Seed or 3200G
      Special attacks - Freezing Eye (all stats -1, line)
                        Gravity (all)
                        Snooze (sleep effect, all)
                        Blizzard Edge (special)

Well, this Boss battle is pretty much the same as the last. But nevertheless
it is a bit more challenging. Use the best moves and everything should be
fine. However, watch out for their status-lowering attacks because they use
them a lot. As always heal if necessary.

After the battle go through the yellow door and into the room with the Red
Ball. Activate it. It'll open 2 doors. Go through the left one. GO left
through the arc and in the end of the path take the Hero's Elixir. Return
and go alongside the edge till you come across Super Mogay Bomb, take it and
return to activate the device. This device will shoot out a small light and
eventually red door will open, go through it. It's another treasure room,
and the items are: Mystic Potion, Sun Robe, Holy Crown and Gold Feather.
After that return aaal the way back to the Birthplace of the Gods 3.

The red door to the right, which was closed, is now opened, enter it and
take the BIG TREASURE CHEST containing Super Mogay Bomb, Hyper Mogay Bomb
and Kojin Charm. Go to the Birthplace of the Gods 2, from there use the
elevator to go back to the Birthplace of the Gods 1.

Go straight up and then use the stairs up into the room. Go through the red
doors and down the stairs. Through the big blue doors and into the room
with the Blue Ball, deactivate it. The door leading to the elevator is
useless so don't go there, instead go through the other door and into the
room with the reflecting blocks. Now push the middle block ones in the
middle and push the block near the wall ones, after that go and activate
the device. It'll shoot out a beam and the BIG TREASURE CHEST will lower so
you could take it. And inside the Dragon Egg, Book if Sages and the Ethereal
Miracle are waiting for you!

Go back to the room with the Blue Ball and activate it again. Now you'll
have to deactivate the Yellow Ball and return to where you received Hero's
Elixir and enter the yellow door, then you can take the Illusion Bandana.
After that go back to the Birthplace of the Gods 2 and use the elevator to
go down to the Birthplace of the Gods 3. Go up and use the SAVE POINT.

When you'll want to enter the control room Elena will spot something. It's
the power cells from an ancient civilization. Inside those cells there are
mummified people of the ancient civilization. Anyway, Tio doesn't know
anything about it so just proceed to the control room.

Inside the room, party notices a strange crest, it appears to be a
combination of symbols of Granas and Valmar.

Tio gets some kind of message and tells everyone that Elmo wishes to speak
with them. Elmo is caretaker of the Birthplace of the Gods.

Go and speak with him (or is it her...?). Roan asks Elmo if it knows
something and Elmo says it does, because Granas and Valmar ones used this
place for their experiments. Ryudo asks Elmo how could they destroy Valmar
or trap it in the seals. Elmo doesn't know what seals Ryudo is talking
about. Elena explains that he is talking about the 'Seals of Granas' which
trap Valmar. Elmo says that those 'seals' are actually a system that
collects individual of Valmar to prepare a human body for Valmar's
possession. Those 'seals' were never meant to trap anyone let alone Valmar;
they were meant to activate it. (ironic isn't it?)

Anyway, the party doesn't have a clue about Valmar, Granas and everything
else what's going on here, so Elmo shoes them an ancient record that
explains everything. Here's what's really happened: (as I see it anyway, I
could be wrong and if I am then do please correct me)

In the ancient days when the world was still young Granas came.
(came?...whatever) He brought light and happiness into the world, the people
were given the power of creation and everyone worshiped Granas. However,
soon humanity lost their ambitions, they stopped dreaming. (boil in their
own juice, you know?) A core of people who grew tired of Granas and saw no
point in worshiping him any further found the power they needed in a being
called Valmar. Valmar is a true potential it occupies humans body and gives
a power he needs, power of humanity. Valmar gave people the power to change
the world. Soon a great battle waged across the world and in the end Granas
died and Valmar's body was lost. With each passing century the darkness and
hatred within the human hearts grew stronger and now the New Valmar is
about to consume the entire World.

After that Ryudo realizes that the only way to fight Zera-Valmar is to
activate the Horns within him.

When you gain control go into the center of the system. As you start going
up, Elena approaches Ryudo and she wants him to share his strength with her
(what? must be Ryudo's new move). And then they kiss (Elena! Granas will
never forgive that!!!(:E) Anyway she sticks around a bit and then jumps down
without a second thought about the height! (Must be magic, no other)

Ryudo is in the system; he's falling. After a little chat with himself Skye
shows up. Ryudo is angry but can't do anything about it. Ryudo is falling.

You end up in some cave. Ryudo will be tested here. Gee, you don't need
guidance through this 'test'. No matter which choice you will make Ryudo
will still loose and will be sleeping with the fishes. I mean, there isn't
even a choice here; you'll always have to choose the 'correct' answer, the
first option. If you choose the second nothing will happen.

Back outside. Valmar is attacking and you'll get a CG movie for proof of
that. Everyone is terrified. Roan, Tio and Elena try to help the people but
things don't look very bright. And then Elena decides to............SING!
Jesus Christ and it actually worked! It's a miracle!

Back in the abyss? Ryudo has regained consciousness and is able to move.
The voice says that he has been reborn. Light goes on and a...a...a I tell
you Ryudo has changed somewhat must be the hair. He says that he doesn't
want to look like this. He says that he'll protect everyone. And then with
the POWER OF HIS WILL and of course the miraculous song he turned himself
into Ryudo again and flew off to save the world.

Back outside. Elena is still singing. Everyone gathered to hear her singing.
Then Ryudo appears. The party is together again and Ryudo has a Granasaber.
You'll get a CG movie how Ryudo swings the sword and night becomes day. He
mocks Zera-Valmar a bit and then you regain control.

The people outside are useless except one guy who sells some good staff. He
has some good regional goods.

Use the SAVE POINT and go up. Keep going the only path you have until
you reach the 'elevator'. Use it. On your way to the next 'elevator' take
3000G. Use the 'elevator' to go up. Start walking the only path available
to you until you reach the 'elevator' use it. Again, no forks here just
keep going until you reach yet another 'elevator' and use it to go up. Go
through the tunnel until you reach an edge with 3 paths, like this:

            __                   __                      __

Watch the CG movie how Valmar is flying into space. Go up and use the
SAVE POINT. Take the left path and take the path through the egg room which
will eventually lead you to Holy Sword Armor, take it and return to the
SAVE POINT.

Now go right, take Yomi's Elixir and continue into the tunnel. Inside is
another room with yellow balls:

Touching ball number 1: Nothing
Touching ball number 2: Encounter with Evil Maneuver and Mind Eater
Touching ball number 3: Opens path to Indigo Potion
Touching ball number 4: Opens path to God of War Helm
Touching ball number 5: Opens path to 9000G and to the egg room
Touching ball number 6: Encounter with Evil Maneuver and Mind Eater

Eventually you'll want to go into the room with 9000G, take it and proceed
into the egg room. Take Yomi's Elixir inside and continue through the room.
Push the yellow ball and the floors will change. (what a hell? Maybe there
is a bus stop here inside the body, eh?) Press another yellow ball and
you'll gain entrance to the New Valmar 3 and the SAVE POINT. Also take
3000G near the SAVE POINT and go into the room near 3000G. Go into another
room inside this room and take the Holy Ghost Staff. Go back touch the
yellow ball and grab Mystic Potion and Scattering Stone.

Grab the BIG TREASURE CHEST with Mystic Potion, Battle Manicure and Ogre
Shoes in it. Then save at the SAVE POINT and prepare for a Mini Boss battle.

MINI BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: 2 Valmar Magna
      HP - 20000
      SC - 100
      MC - 600
      EXP - 1400
      Drop items - Mystic Potion or Brave Dirk or 3000G
      Special attacks - Magna Boring (Move Block, Magic Block effects, one)
                        BOOM! (some)
                        Magna Ripper (cancel effect, one)

2 Valmar Magna's? Have BOOM! spell? Whatever! They still suck. Pump em up
with your best moves and they're toast.

After the battle the 'door' to the Core will open. Enter it.

NEW VALMAR CORE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the Core room you meet Valmar and have a little chat. Valmar tries to
desperately seduce all the characters. They refuse and are dead serious to
kill Valmar. Valmar also eager to show them his power so the battle begins!

BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: Valmar's Core     Left Head     Middle Head     Right Head
      HP - ~49000       HP - ~35000   HP - ~32000     HP - ~28000
      SC - 0
      MC - 0
      EXP - 0
      Drop items - NOTHING
      Special attacks - Hammer Claw (special)
                        Dead Claw (move block effect, one)
                        Spellbinding Eye (magic and move block effects, one)
                        Avenging Claw (one)
                        Destruction Light* (line)
                        Day of Judgment (Valmar Special, -1 ATK, all)
                        Howl (some)
                        Howlslash (line)
                        Burn Flame (some)
                        Burnstrike (one)
                        Alhealer (all)
                        Crackle (one)
                        Zap all (all)
                        Tremor (some)
                        Quake (all)
                        Snooze (sleep effect, all)

Yeah baby, finally some kind of a challenge! Just look at this thing! It's
huge and ugly.

As you can see it's a multipart Boss, but you can divide them all into 2
main parts: His Core and his Heads. Of course you can go for his heads but
that's a long and painful path. By destroying his heads you will disable
his recovery magic as well as his simple magic such as Howl, Crackle,
Tremor. But all the destructive moves are done by his Core, so things like
Hammer Claw, Spellbinding Eye, Avenging Claw and the supa-dupa Day of Judgment
still be coming at you.

In any case, it's as usual, hit him with all the best like Sky Dragon Slash,
Fast Dance Whirl, True Dragon Rise and White Apocalypse. He will heal
occasionally but it's ~1200 HP of healing compared to your 4000-5000 HP of
damage per character. Keep hitting his Core and watch for his heads as they
can get annoying sometimes, heal with magic like Alheal and use Droplets of
Life if the situation is critical.

*Here's a notice from Pano about the Destruction Light:

 Destruction Light comes from the three heads. If one of them casts it while
 the three heads are alive you'll see that it hits only those which are
 directly in front of of one of the heads. Like this: If Tio, Roan and Elena
 for example are directly in front of one of them (For exp.: Tio is in front of
 the left head, Roan in front of the right head nd Elena in front of the
 central head) while Ryudo is behind the three heads, it will only hit Tio,
 Roan and Elena while Ryudo will remain unharmed. That's why it not quite a
 complete waste of time, killing the heads, and for some reason he casts Day of
 Judgement rarer.

Oh yeah, by the way. Fight this battle with the regard of the next one.
Because no one will let you heal, save or recover, whatsoever.

After the battle. Valmar cannot believe the power of humanity and sends out
a false Millenium to take care of the party. This Millenia is an imposter
so kick her ass!

BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: Millenia
      HP - 23000
      SC - 6000
      MC - 0
      EXP - 0
      Drop items - Black Angel Bow
      Special attacks - Fallen Wings (Valmar attack, all)
                        Dragon Zap (Bolt attack, line)

Keep your HP high that's the most important thing in this battle. Millenia
suppose to use her Valmar attacks, but she only uses the Fallen Wings.
Anyway, you may do as I did: Just brutally attack her with only combos;
it's 4 to 1 after all. And watch your HP.

After the battle Elena says that she understands everything. She tells
Millenia to appear. And Millenia............appears! Just like that! Of
course everyone is happy to see her.

Zera-Valmar cannot believe this kind of turn of events. He stars screaming
some crazy things and sends a flash. Tio and Roan end up on the other side
of the crack with 2 Valmar Moths for a company. While Ryudo, Elena and
Millenia have to finish Zera-Valmar.

When you gain control reequip Millenia and head for the mark on the ground.
You will be teleported to some bizarre room.

NEW VALMAR, ROOM OF CHAOS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Teleport save at the SAVE POINT and encounter the Tongue of Valmar again.
This guy is back! And he is hungry! Well I guess he needs to be taught a
lesson once again!

BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: Valmar's Tongue      Left Hand     Right Hand     Head
      HP - 27000           HP - 18000    HP - 18000     HP - 9000
      SC - 8000
      MC - 2000
      EXP - 6000
      Drop items - Golden Potion, Potion of Azure, Indigo Potion and
                      Starlight Tiara
      Special attacks - Eat em' alive (confusion effect, one)
                        Gluttony (special)
                        Huge leap (cancel effect, all)
                        Burn (Fire damage, one)
                        Spew Venom (Poison damage, special)
                        Hellburner (Fire damage, all)
                        Flamethrower (Fire damage, special)

Although he's back with upgraded, updated and graduated stats and moves
he's still kind of lame. Your tactics are quite obvious, Sky Dragon Slash,
Fallen Wings and White Apocalypse. His had has only 9000 HP so it's going
down the first. Just keep using those moves until he's over. But do watch
for his Eat em' alive, Gluttony and Huge Leap. Heal if necessary.

After the battle go back and save. Then proceed to encounter the second
Boss the Eye of Valmar. She's also back and she's staring at you!

BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: Valmar's Eye     Left Tendril     Right Tendril
      HP - 20000       HP - 20000       HP - 20000
      SC - 8000
      MC - 2000
      EXP - 6000
      Drop items - Queen Heels, Mystic Potion and Indigo Potion
      Special attacks - Seed of Sleep (sleep effect, special)
                        Seed of Poison (poison effect, special)
                        Runner (MOV +1, all)

      4 Eyeball Bat
      HP - 20000
      Drop items - Potion of Azure
      Special attacks - Delta Burst (one)

This is easy! Forget about the Eyeball Bats. Use Sky Dragon Slash, Fallen
Wings and White Apocalypse once and they are all half-dead. Then just finish
them with whatever move.

After the battle save once again and continue. Now it's time for the heart.

BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: Valmar's Heart     Left Eye     Right Eye
      HP - 25000         HP - 16000   HP - 16000
      SC - 8000
      MC - 2000
      EXP - 6000
      Drop items - Tenma's Dress, Mystic Potion, Potion of Azure
      Special attacks - Speedy (Act +1, one)
                        Def-Loss (DEF -1, All)
                        Freeze! (MOV -1, all)
                        Quake (all)

She's a joke! Use the same strategy as before and she will be a dead meat
even faster!

After the battle save and then continue to meet Zera-Valmar.

He's nuts! The party tells him that he's no God, but no, he doesn't listen.
Zera says that he'll show them his true divine power. Prepare for the final
battle of the game.

FINAL BOSS BATTLE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Boss: Zera Valmar
      HP - 36000
      SC - NA
      MC - NA
      EXP - NA
      Drop items - NA
      Special attacks - Ba-Boom! (all)
                        GadZap (paralyze effect, one)
                        Crackle (one)
                        Poizn (poison effect, all)

What a hell is this lovely flower!? I mean c'mon go easy on poor Zera,
he's old! Mua ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! Cracle, Poizn nad everything else suck,
he's BA-BOOM! is no where near the BA-BOOM! of the Devils. And this is the
final battle? Final battle my ass! Anyway, brutally slaughter this plant.

Well, this is it, but check out the cool epilogue. I think that it's
important for RPG's to have an epilogue. I don't like when some games just
end suddenly with raw credits... I know I will shut up now and let you enjoy
the ending. You don't need a strategy guide for the ending it's up to you
from here. (:E

   VI. FAQ
============================================================================

This section will answer some questions that may pop up during your play
time. These questions are not necessarily frequently asked but they may help
you clear out some things.

Q: What are the minimum System Requirements for Grandia II on the PC?

A: These are the official requirements from the 'Readme' file and
   the Ubisoft web site. As always--for better results you should try
   using a bit better hardware than listed below.

   - Supported OS: Windows 95/98/ME
   - Processor: Pentium II 300 MHz (Pentium III or AMD Athlon recommended)
   - RAM: 64 MB of system RAM (128 MB or higher recommended)
   - Video Card: DirectX 8-compatible video card with 16 MB video RAM with
                 at least 8 MB texture memory (32 MB video RAM with at
                 least 16 MB of texture memory recommended)
   - Sound Card: DirectX 8-compatible sound card
   - DirectX Version: DirectX 8 (included on CD)
   - CD-ROM: 8X CD-ROM drive (16X or higher recommended)
   - Hard Drive Space: 850 MB uncompressed hard drive space
   - Peripherals Supported: Mouse and keyboard (DirectX 8-supported game
                            pad recommended)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What are the differences between DC, PS2 and PC versions?

A: Although I own PS2 and have Grandia II I only played PC version so the
   credits for this answer goes to various FAQ writers on Gamefaqs:

   - PC version has a small Gmconfig application that lets you configure
     Grandia II settings.

   - In the PC version, only CD 2 is the game play disc, CD 1 is only an
     installer.

   - The Millenia Zap! bug is not in the DC version. She is able to
     knockout Ryudo out with Stram.

   - Melfice's Regenerator is _not_ invincible in the DC version as I
     originally thought. It has about 15000 HP.

   - Items you get from mushrooms are random in the DC version.

   - Certain things aren't as smooth on the PS2 version as they are on the
     DC version. Slowdowns during certain parts of the game and
     transparency problems during certain spells and on certain screens.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What is 'Millenia Zap!' bug anyway?

A: Apparently this bug happens at the beginning of the game. When you first
   encounter Millenia in Carbo village you have to fight her and in order to
   progress through the game she has to cast Zap! on Ryudo. But sometimes it
   never happens. Millenia simply beats the crap out of Ryudo with normal
   attacks or moves and the game ends.

   There are different ways to fix this error like reloading your save or
   actually defeating Millenia. Also try to open/close the cover of your
   console if your playing the DC or the PS2 version. If you still have
   this problem then I suggest to start all over again using the New Game,
   yeah, I know it sucks but it's the beginning just play through it again
   quickly.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Is it true that if I complete the game the items will be placed in
   different locations?

A: Yes. If you complete Grandia II then save and start a new game all the
   items will be placed in different locations.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Can this FAQ be used on the DC or PS2 versions of the game?

A: Yes. As you can see the differences between PS2, DC and PC versions are
   quite insignificant so you can use this FAQ for any version.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Where can I get all the Music from this game?

A: I knew this trick a long time ago, but Dabestgamer was the first one to
   bring it up on the Message Boards. So credits go to him and I hope he
   doesn't mind that I posted his text. Anyway if you want the music you'll
   need the game CDs. If you don't have them and still want the music then
   your best bet would be progs like Kazaa.

   There are two sources from where the game gets its music during the game:
   from the play disc and the files where you chose to install the
   installation disc. So you'll have to go to play disc folder 'vms', copy
   the folder to your hard drive, and in there should be files with a
   extension of '.adx'. So a file there should look like this:
   'Valmar02.vms.adx'. OK, then just delete the vms and adx extensions and
   change to wav, so the file should look like this 'Valmer02.wav' You
   can also do the same for the folder where you installed the game (for
   example: C:\Program Files\Grandia2) and in there should be a folder that
   reads 'vms' also. Copy the folder to not mess with the game and change
   the extension on those to wav, too. After that, just burn the desired
   wav files onto an Audio CD and you can listen to it on a CD Player.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Is Grandia II plot related to other Grandia games?

A: No. Grandia II has a completely different world with it's own storyline.
   Although I _STRONGLY_ recommend playing Grandia I first. Grandia Xtreme
   is a dungeon-explorer though it has also a good story. Other Grandia
   titles include Grandia: Parallel Trippers and Grandia: Digital Museum.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What is Grandia: Parallel Trippers?

A: It's an RPG for Game Boy Color. The game's story is based on the original
   Grandia. In Grandia: Parallel Trippers, three school students named
   Yuuhi, Mizuki and Shirou are somehow carried over to the world of
   Grandia. In this world, they meet Liete, who tells them that to return to
   their own world, they will require the help of Justin, Feena and Sue
   (all from Grandia I), as well as Sweats. However, as the story
   progresses, they find themselves as the only ones who can save the world.
   There is a new 'synthesis card battle' system now. It will involve
   collecting cards and trading them with other players.

   Grandia: Parallel Trippers was scheduled for a December 22nd in Japan,
   and was on a 32MB cartridge. The game was 4500 yen (~$40).

   Is there an English version? You ask? Of course not, my naive friend!
   The English version of this game simply does not exist. Where do you
   think you live, in Wonderland or something!?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What is Grandia: Digital Museum?

A: It's a ESP/GAME ARTS released game for the fans who brought Grandia...
   although I think around 40000 copies were sold. It was intended to be
   released on the Mega CD and took around 5 years untill it was finally
   released on Saturn. It's basically a CD which shows stuff from the
   original game, like production art, game info, enemy data, music tracks,
   character avatars and save files of the important events (for this
   option you will need the original CD to view). You'll have to explore
   dungeons which are NOT in the original game, so its really a new game in
   its own right. But there is lots of menus and stuff in Japanese so it's
   hard navigating.

   You start of with Justin, Feena and Sue (who are around lvl 25 and with
   most of their magics and attacks intact) but these enemies (which are
   also in the original game) are really HARD! Find stuff to unlock the
   above mentioned goodies and view them in some theatre (not in the
   original game btw).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What is Grandia Xtreme?

A: Grandia Xtreme is the next installment in Grandia series. However Grandia
   Xtreme is not Grandia III, it is a dungeon crawler with entirely
   independant world and story, although the game system is based on Grandia
   II it has improved graphics along with gameplay. Rather than
   concentrating on the story developers decided that it's time for players
   to feel the taste of battle. And thatýs what this game is mostly all
   about-fighting countless battles, building up your characters and hunting
   for items.

   It was released pretty much at the same time in Japan as Grandia II,
   January 2002. However the Western players, along with us, Europeans had
   to wait a bit to play this game. It was scheduled to be released
   worldwide September 2002.

   This game is only for the PS2.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Will someone leave my party?

A: Yes. At one point in the game Roan will leave your party. However, fret
   not because he will rejoin your party later in the game. Also at the end
   of the game Mareg will leave the team for good. Don't worry however,
   because there will be an item that will let you restore all the SC you
   used on Maregs moves.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: If I missed the Book of War, can I get it later?

A: No. Unfortunately if you missed it the first time you won't be bale to
   take it later. :/

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Is there any web sites for Grandia that I could lurk about?

A: If you want some really good and in depth info on Grandia series then you
   should definitely check out this one: http://jump.to/grandia

   If you want some pics then check this: http://www.magic-guild.net/g-a/

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Carro? Why do I need it?

A: Granas only knows... Carro is quite useless. The only use from it is that
   you can light your way through the dungeon. But Grandia II dungeons are
   not that dark.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Can I defeat Millenia when I encounter her for the first time.

A: Yes. Formerly it was considered that she is invincible. However numerous
   people have emailed me stating otherwise.

   You see technically she can be beaten but it is almost impossible to do
   so without a cheating device like PAR (Pro Action Replay) or GS (Game
   Shark 2) for the PS2. Or a save hacking program for the PC.

   If you can make yourself invincible or make her helpless using on of the
   methods above then you can defeat her. But there is no point in doing so.
   Because either way after you beat her to submission the game continues as
   if Ryudo had lost! Yeah, there is nothing you can do here; it simply
   wasn't programmed into the game code. Ryudo must loose even though he can
   win. 0_o

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Where is the best place to lvl up?

A: Well I gave a number of suggestions in my FAQ about the levels and where
   to lvl up. But I guess if you're near the end of the game you could try
   to fight the Devils in Raul Hills Special Stage. Creatures like Snow
   Leopard, Killer Tree and Mind Eater give a good Exp. And you could
   always buy some seeds from a guy's shop if you have enough cash. It's
   not like you can run around the world map anytime you want so you'll
   have to choose carefully where and when and how to lvl up your
   characters. I think you'll have no problems with levels of your
   characters should you choose to follow my suggestions.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: I get a GameOver when I lose to Melfice first time I encountere him in
   battle, why?

A: You have to combat him for a while without dying. He then hits you with
   his Wailing Soul Slash and beats you down. After that the story should
   continue.
