This Quest guide written for both the US Castlevania: Portrait of Ruins
and the Japanese Akumajo Dracula: Gallery of Labyrinth. 
I have used the english and japanese names accordingly for the two
different versions.

In order to display the Japanese text properly you need to set your browser
or text editor to Shift JIS encoding.

I hardly have time to update this guide, so it may take some time 
for a newer version to be put up.

This guide is FULL OF SPOILERS!!!!

General Quests Information

Quests are something new in he Castlevania series. Once you meet Wind, 
he will give you various "quests" that you can choose from when you talk to

At any one time, the Wind's Quest menu will only show a maximum 5 quests. 
If you accepted all of the current 5 quests, you have to complete at least 
one of them before a new quest will show up.

Completing quests will get you various items and spell rewards. Some quests
are related and you need to complete the first one before the next one will 
appear. An example of this is quest no. 13, 14, 16 and 21. You have to 
complete quest 13 before 14 will appear, even if you have less than 5 quests 
on Wind's Quest menu.

When you finish a quest it will tell you you clear a Quest unless you 
already cleared it before you even activate it or you are at the main menu 
screen when the quest is cleared.


IMPORTANT : After clearing the quest ALWAYS go back to talk to Wind for your
rewards. If not you will not get the reward.

Keep at least one copy of each item and if you have only one of it, DO NOT
USE or SELL it, because some of the items are needed to complete the quests.
If you sold or used any of the quest required items, you have to buy them
from others through the online wifi shop mode or beat the game and get the 
items on the next playthrough.


The first quest (Preparations) must be done in order to progress 
through the game. The rest are OPTIONAL.
