While I've done my best to avoid storyline spoilers, I cannot guarantee that
this guide is entirely spoiler free.  There will be no discussion of the plot,
characters, or Suikoden Universe in this guide, it is meant to be used purely
as a means to help you through the game, finish quests, and recruit characters.

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

Thank you for choosing my guide!  I hope my guide will be helpful to both
the casual players, who are just there to enjoy the ride, and those who are
completionists that want every character, item, and quest completed.

Unfortunately, due to lack of available free time Online, I am unable to
provide my EMail address in my Walkthroughs to answer questions.

Due to FAQ size, I've added a Contol-F function.  Though it's not necessary
to use it, you can just type in "Chapter #: [Name]" it will help you get
around in heavy list sections, such as Characters and Quests. You may need
to search twice to find what you're looking for, since you may first be sent
to the Quick Walkthrough section.

If you're looking for a guide to recruit the Stars of Destiny, please check
the "Recruitable Characters" section under "Starbearers: Stars of Destiny."
It is in chronological order an has a minimal amount of spoilers.  The main
Walkthrough also has this information.

This guide is currently In-Progress and though the Walkthrough is complete,
there is still much that is in the process of being added, fixed, and
rewritten.

                      --- Frequently Asked Questions ---

===============================================================================
                                                                        -s1faq-
In this FAQ section, I will briefly go over which questions I see asked most
frequently about Suikoden Tierkreis.

-----------------------------------------------
Question 1:  What is Suikoden Tierkreis and how is it related to previous
Suikoden titles?                                                       -q1wst-
Question 2:  What do the status icons in the menu mean?                -q2stm-
Question 3:  What does the icon under a monster's name mean?           -q3icm-
Question 4:  Can I change settings? Turn off the Voice Acting?         -q4csv-
Question 5:  I'm having problems recruiting a character!               -q5prc-
Question 6:  The Nakil/Hafin Problem                                   -q6nkh-
Question 7:  Help! A Quest isn't appearing for me!                     -q7qia-
Question 8:  Who is the Assassin after Icas and how do I recruit him?  -q8wia-
Question 9:  The Namna Problem                                         -q9tnp-
-----------------------------------------------

------------------------------
Question: What is Suikoden Tierkreis and how is it related to previous Suikoden
titles?                                                                -q1wst-
------------------------------
Answer:
Suikoden Tierkreis takes place in an alternate "world" in the same "universe"
as the original Suikoden games.  Don't expect to see any of your favorite
characters, as they're not in this world. The Stars of Destiny remain, as does
headquarter and army building, but the rest of the game is quite different.

Runes don't exist in this world, so no more of the True Runes are revealed.
Blacksmiths don't raise your weapon level and instead you buy new weapons for
each character.  Most characters are not restricted to one weapon type.

The main character is not a silent protagonist, unlike the other main entries
in the Suikoden series.  This is not entirely new, though, as the Suikogaidens
and Suikoden Tactics didn't have silent protagonists.

------------------------------
Question:  What do the status icons in the menu mean?                  -q2stm-
------------------------------
Answer:
Not even the instruction booklet explains that, unfortunately.  However, it's
rather easy to deduce what they mean from previous Suikoden games.

Sword, top left: Total attack power, Strength+Weapon Attack power
Shield, left: Physical Defense Power.
Magic, top right: The wand represents magic power.
Shield, right: Magical defense power.
Hand, left: "Skill," or hit percentage and multiple attack potential.
Running Man, right: "Speed/Agility" How quickly a character acts in battle.
Star, left: Luck, it's believed to affect critical hit rates.

If you're looking for more information, see the Character Menu screen section
of the Basics section.

------------------------------
Question: What does the icon under a monster's name mean?              -q3icm-
------------------------------
Answer:
This denotes a monster's strength, weakness, and neutrality towards weapons.
The Slash, which is Sword and some Axe-type weapons, is denoted by a crescent.
A large, circular star-ish shape represents Strike, which is Fist and Club
type weapons.
The yellow shape that seems to be facing upwards, in something of a triangle
or arrowhead shape, represents pierce, which is Spear and Bow type weapons.

If, when fighting a monster, the mark below said monster is blocked out and
has a line through it, it means the monster is resistant to that type of
attacks.  For example, if the Slash icon has a line through it, then Swords
and Axes won't do damage as effectively.

If the monster has no mark by their name, they are neutral towards that type
of damage.

------------------------------
Question: Can I change Settings? Turn off the Voice Acting?            -q4csv-
------------------------------
Answer:
Unfortunately, no, you are not able to change your game settings or turn off
the voice acting.  If you're early and the game and the Hero's voice is
annoying you, fear not!  His voice gets slower over time.  It's only a few
characters that actually speak like he does.  

Later on you'll be able to change the "Window" type to a different color
and slightly different layout, but the controls, text speed, and other
settings cannot be changed. 

------------------------------
Question: I'm having problems recruiting a character!                  -q5prc-
------------------------------
Answer:
Take a look in the Stars of Destiny section of this guide.  That section is
devoted to the characters you recruit automatically and characters you must
go out of your way to recruit.  That section is meant to be as spoiler-free
as possible and the characters are presented in chronological order.

------------------------------
Question: The Nakil/Hafin Problem                                      -q6nkh-
------------------------------
Answer:
Nakil and Hafin are rather confusing characters to rectuit because they can
"switch places," so to speak.  For example, if you find Hafin in the Mislato
River early in the game, you'll see the events with Nakil at your
Headquarters once the lake has appeared.

However, if you wait until later, Nakil will appear at the Mislato River and
Hafin's scene will trigger at the Headquarters.

No matter which order you do it, the method for recruiting them is the same.
Bring Asad to the Mislato River for the first character.  Chronologically
speaking if you go to recruit the characters as soon as possible, the
character you'll find there is Hafin.  Once you have one of the two characters,
later on in the game, once you've returned from Cragbark the first time, you
can recruit the second character.  Put Asad into your party and walk around
for a few days, then enter the Headquarters by foot.  If the scene doesn't
trigger, exit the Headquarters and walk around some more.

Once the scene triggers, you need to pass, literally a few months game time
by walking around and when you re-enter your Headquarters, a scene will
play. This can be somewhat random and difficult to trigger, it seems. It
didn't seem season based, though.

Nakil and Hafin are both missable characters, so try and recruit them as soon
as possible. If you're at the set of events right before the Mission where 
the desert appears, it's too late to recruit them!  They need to be done as
soon as possible.

------------------------------
Question: Help! A Quest isn't appearing for me!                        -q7qia-
------------------------------
Answer:
Having trouble getting a recruitment Quest started?

There are four reasons this will happen.
1: You're in the middle of a story event or Mission.
2: Having certain quests active will stop other Quests from appearing, so try
finishing off other quests.
3: Try speaking with the characters who trigger the quest again, usually once
or twice.  You may have missed a conversation with one of them.
4: Try going ahead one scene in the game if you're in-between Missions. This
will mostly happen if you're after an event and you can go into the Grand
Hall and have a Yes or No Option to continue the game. 

Finally, make sure you've recruited all prerequisite characters and any
prerequisite quests.

------------------------------
Question: Who is the Assassin after Icas and how do I recruit him?     -q8wia-
------------------------------
Answer:
After the events dealing with Icas and Morrin's recruitment, you met a large,
bald man who is trying to kill Icas.  This man's name is Ouragan and it is
possible to recruit him in what is Chapter 8 of this FAQ.  I'd suggest
looking in the Stars of Destiny Section for more details.

------------------------------
Question: The Namna Problem                                            -q9tnp-
------------------------------
Answer:
Namna seems to be causing quite a few people recruitment issues.
The short answer to this problem is this:
There are two chances to recruit him.  If you can't get him at the earlier
point, which is after rectreiving three of the Chronicles, try watching a
scene in the Grand Hall.  If the Grand Hall doesn't trigger the next events
with him, wait until later in the game.  It's as simple as that.  You have not
lost your chance to recruit Namna if you've missed recruiting him as soon as
possible, but there does seem to be a rather short window available for his
recruit until the end of the game.

It is possible to recruit Namna at a later time once you've taken Fort
Arc.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about and are still trying to recruit
Namna, check the Stars of Destiny Section.

                              --- Basics ---

===============================================================================
                                                                        -s2bsc-
The Basics section goes over the very basics of Suikoden, which are all
necessary to Master to beat the game with ease.  Not only will this section
include the very basics of information, such as travel, controls, and battle
basics, but it will go a bit more in-depth into menus, their usage, stats,
and types of damage.

The instruction manual that comes with the game is terrible, so these sections
had to be made. 

If you've never played a Suikoden game before, I'd suggest looking over the
Menu screen section, as that is where there are changes from other RPGs.
The stats may also seem foreign, since Suikoden doesn't use traditional stats,
such as "Hit Percentage."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---                              Controls                                   ---
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                        -bs1ct-
It is not possible to change the controls in this game, so you're stuck with
using the default controls.

Stylus Use:
It is possible to use the Stylus in Suikoden Tierkreis, however it only works
in place of the "A" Button, which is generally used to choose Accept, Okay,
Continue, anything that means "Yes," generally.  You cannot control your
character with the Stylus, but it does work during conversations, on the
menu screen, and in Battle.

During conversations, you can skip ahead of dialogue by clicking the character
text box.
In the Menu and Battle, just click the option you wish to choose to initiate.
---------------------------
Control Pad: 
Move your character.  Pressing right moves your Hero right, left
moves him left, etc.  There's nothing special about the Control Pad controls.
---------------------------
A Button:
Select, Okay, Choose selected Command, action button, however you wish to
refer to this button.  A Button is the main command button in Suikoden
Tierkreis.  On the Field, use this to examine, open chests, and speak to
non-playable characters.
---------------------------
B Button:
Cancel, Back, No, the opposite of A. If you chose the wrong command on a Menu,
Quest, Battle, or other screen, Press B to cancel back out of it.
---------------------------
Y Button:
This button opens the Menu screen.  The menu screen cannot be opened while on
a Town Menu, but it can be opened on the Field Screens and World Map screens.
----------------------------
L and R Buttons:
These are used on the menu screen on the Equipment and Status screens. They
allow you to switch between the characters you're viewing without having to
cancel out of the screen and pick another character manually.

                                                                        -bs2tf-
The Field sceen in Suikoden Tierkreis is broken down into four types, World Map
Town, Dungeon, and Menu:

                              World Map
                                  |
                              ---------
                             |    |    |
                        Town Menu | Dungeon
                             |   Menu /|
                             |         |
                        Town Field  Battle Field/Event

A "Field" screen is defined as a screen you can run around, speak with people,
examine object, or fight battles.  It it different from the World Map and
Menu screens because in those screens, you point and click the option you
want.

The World Map is first encountered once you clear the first series of events
in the game.  Travelling on the World Map takes "time" in the form of days and
seasons.  The World Map is a "Menu" type screen in that you cannot control
your character directly.

From the World Map, you may enter a Town, Dungeon, or the Menu screens.  The
Menu screen is opened by pressing the Y Button.  Towns or dungeons depend on
where your cursor is over and where your character is currently located.  If
your Hero is currently in a Forest or Desert, he's more likely than not in a
dungeon.

Dungeon Screens have chests, random encounters and are generally areas you
can explore.  In Dungeons, press the X Button to open the Menu and the 
A button to open the Menu Screen.  Control your character by pressing left to
head left, right to head right, and the like.

Town Menus are encountered when you enter a town area.  Town areas usually
have an Inn, Item Shop, Weapon Shop, and various other areas, such as a
Residence or Town Square where you will visit when events occur. To choose
which area to enter, press up and down on the control pad and press A to
enter the area.   When you select an area from the Town menu, you're brought
to a Town Field area, where you can control your character.

When trvaelling on Field Screens, do you notice the different colors on the
doors when you switch areas?  They look like "dots" or even have a "Diamond"
shape and only occur where the area changes.

Green:
-------------------
If the door color is Green, you're staying in the same area, but switching
screens to a new portion of the same area.  For example, in a dungeon moving
from one level to another.  If you're in Town, typically the only time you'll
see this Green "dot" is in an Inn, when you're visiting other rooms in the
same area.  This is mostly seen in larger dungeons.

Red:
-------------------
This typically occurs in Towns.  When you're exploring a field area in a town,
you'll notice a red dot that signifies the exit to the Town Menu screen.
Basically, what Red is saying is that you're heading back to the "Area Select"
on the Town screens.

The only other time you'll find this is in a large field-type screen, such as
Citro Plains.  In an area like that, when you approach a town, you'll see a
red dot signifying entrance to the area.

Yellow:
-------------------
Typically only seen in Dungeons and open field-type areas, this color means
you're going to head onto the World Map.  It basically signifies the exit
to a dungeon or field.

Watching the colors will make your travels quite a bit easier.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---                          Days and Seasons                               ---
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                        -bs3ds-
Suikoden Tierkreis has system of seasons and days that determine when certain
events are shown.  Each time you travel somewhere, a certain amount of days
passes. Days do not pass while you're on the Field Map, but days DO pass when
you spend the night at an Inn.

You'll notice the numbers at the top left corner of the screen, along with a
strange icon.  The game starts and it looks something like a dark blue face.
as the game continues, the icon changes to what looks like a closed Rose.
Finally, later on, the icon changes to a Flower open in full bloom.  This
is what significies what season you're in.

The blue/black, circular, face-like icon represents "Sprout" Season.
The pink and green flower that looks like a Rose before it blooms is the "Bud"
season.
The open, pink and yellow, flower is "Flower" Season.

The order of seasons is simple:
Sprout -> Bud -> Flower -> Sprout -> Bud -> Flower. . . . . .

Each "Season" lasts an in-game "month," which is 30 days long.

Feel free to spend as much time as you want running around on the world map,
as you could spend years and years game-time running around and the story won't
be altered.

The seasons alter:
Certain character recruitment events.
Trade Rumors.
Encountering strong area "Boss" monsters in a normal random encounter.

To elaborate on "encountering strong area 'boss' monsters. . .," Jale comments
early on about how a strong monster appears in Flesaria Forest during Flower
Season.  If you run around, you may eventually encounter this "area boss."
The area bosses are typically large monsters.

To see if an area has an "Area Boss" in another season, you need to fight a
bit.  If you encounter "baby" type enemies, such as Larva, Chick, Buds, or
anything that signifies they're not a full-grown enemy, come back in a season
or two and you can fight the adult version.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---                               The Menus                                 ---
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                        -bs4mu-
The Menu is a screen you will see quite often in Suikoden Tierkreis.  You
will manage your characters, items, formation, weapons, and armor on the menu
screen.  There are quite a few types of Menu Screen, such as the Quest,
Town, and Party Menu screens.

Town Menu:
-------------------
The Town Menu is encountered when you enter any normal town.  Depending on
the Town, the order of each area changes, but typically there are three types
of "fields" to enter from a town: Event Area, Exploration, and Shop area.
Event Areas are areas to progress through the game and you're almost always
told to go there by the story itself.
Exploration areas are areas such as a "Residence" or "Plaza" that don't have
anything to do with the immediate story, but may be used later or have some
information about the Story, World, or Characters you may find interesting.
Shops usually involve spending or making Potch.  Shops include Weapon/Armor/
Accessories, an Inn, and a Trading center.  Not all towns have all of the
above.

Quest Menu:
-------------------
You do not have immediate access to the Quest Screen.  But once you can use
Moana, you can start accepting quests from the Quest Menu.

The top option on the Quest Menu will allow you to see which Quests are
available. Depending on the Icon on the Left side of the screen by
each Quest Name, the Quests are different types:

A quest with a exclamation point, "!," denotes a "Mission," which are
required for the Storyline.  Some Quests, are also required for the Storyline.

A Hero icon, with a Main Character head on it, means the Main Character must
go personally.  These are usually in character recruitment type quests.
This type of quest is called a "Leader Quest."

A Flag Icon indicated a Dispatch quest, where you send a party of characters
for a certain amount of "Dispatch" days in order to complete the Quest. Some
Dispatch Quests require certain stats to be high, such as Physical Attack
Power or Luck. You'll know if the character will do well in a Quest if they
react enthusiastically through their text on the top screen. 

Note that while a Character is "Dispatched" on a Quest, you cannot use them
in battle or for events, so make sure they're back and have reported if you
send important characters out.

Once you have access to the Corridor, which occurs after a story event, you
can warp to the Corridor through the Quest Menu.  The Corridor will allow
you to use Wi-Fi and do Quests with other players.

The "View Quest History" Icon allows you to read the descriptions of
previously completed quests. 

By "Reporting" a Quest or Mission, you get the reward.  In many cases, you
cannot accept a new Story Mission or Quest until you've reported an old one.

Accepting a Quest will start a Quest and Viewing Quests will allow you to
view your currently accepted and not-reported Quests.


Party Menu:
-------------------

Items:  Allows you to sort, view, and use your current Items, Key Items,
Weapons, and Armor.  Key Items usually have some relevance to the story,
while Weapons and Armor are equippable by characters.  Unlike in previous
Suikoden games, you do not have to equip items to characters to be able to use
them in battle.

LVL Represents Current character level.  The higher this goes, the higher
the character base stats get.
EXP is the Experience into a level a character is.  Once the EXP total hits
1,000, the Character levels up to the next level and the counter is reset to
0 again.
The Heart Icon is "HP" or "Health/Hit Points."
The shiny yellow star-like Icon represents "MP" or "Magic Points."

-------------------
Equipment:  This command allows you to change equipment for each party
member.  Not every character can wear every type of weapon and armor.  Some
character, such as the main character, can equip two one-handed weapons, such
as swords.  Other characters, such as Marica, are stuck with single-wield
and a Shield.  Picking weapons for pure attack power is not always the best
option, especially on a Mage. 

Also, you can check weapon types from the Equipment Screen.  Different weapons
produce different types of damage.  In fact, the types of damage is
practically identical to Persona 3, if you've ever played that.  For example,
Hand-To-Hand type weapons deal Strike based damage, Spears and Bows deal
Pierce, while Axes and Swords deal Slash type damage.   There will be more
about types of damage in the Battle section.

Also important on this screen is Weapon Range, which is used in battle.
When checking a weapon, be sure not only to look at the "type," but the
"range" as well.  For example, certain types of Mage Staff may not have a
"type," but they do have a Range: L, which stands for Long.

S: Short Range, does best in the front row in battle. Cannot attack when in
the back row.
M: Medium Range, can attack when in the front and back rows.
L: Does best in the back row in battle, can attack from the front and back
rows.  Generally not as powerful as short range and medium range weapons. 

The weapon equipped to your characters do not influence stat progression.
Switch in-between weapons based on situation as much as you'd like. 

-------------------
Marks of the Stars: This command allows you to view your currently equipped
Marks of the Stars.  This command is not available right at the beginning of
the game but unlocks slightly later on.  And, even later, you'll be able to
manipulate your Marks in order to choose which ones you want to use on each
character.

You can only Use a Mark out of battle if it's a Recovery type, such as one
that will restore your HP.

-------------------
Quest:
The Quest Command covers both Quests and Missions.  Only Quests that you have
Active and are not reported to Moana are found in the Quest section.  If
you forget where you are in the game after a break for a few days, you can
select your current Quest and press the A Button.  This will give you the
"Quest Details," which are basically hints on where to go next. You cannot
cancel or accept new Quests from the Quest command in the party Menu.

-------------------
Formation:
This important command allows you to change the formation of the characters
you use in battle.  Weaker characters with less HP, mostly mages, usually
do best in the back row where they'll take less damage.  Stronger characters
who specialize in physical attacks and have decent defense generally stay
in the Front Row.

Though there are six spaces, you can only use four characters maximum.

When placing your characters, it's important to remember not only their roles,
but their weapon types.  A Hand-to-Hand user will be unable to attack from
the back row, since he is a "S," attacker as found on weapon descriptions on
the "Equipment" portion of the Menu Screen.  The "S" means he's a short
range attacker that can only attack physically from the front row.  A "L" means
that the character can attack physically from the back row, has greater
accuracy there, and will still do complete damage.

S: Short Range, does best in the front row in battle. Cannot attack when in
the back row.
M: Medium Range, can attack when in the front and back rows.
L: Does best in the back row in battle, can attack from the front and back
rows.  Generally not as powerful as short range and medium range weapons.

Because the front and back rows only have three slots, you're going to need
at least one of a Short or Long range fighter no matter which characters you
choose to use.

-------------------
Character Information:
This section allows you to see your character stats and information about
the character, as well as their title.  Some characters, such as the Hero and
important story characters, sometimes change their character Title and
Descriptions as the story progresses.

Here's a quick view at what each icon means and how they will affect your
performance in battle.

Base Values are found when completely unequipped with gear.

Sword, top left: Total attack power.
Strength+Weapon Attack Power=Total Attack Power
Base strength would be found by completely removing your weapons.  If you're
Dual Wielding weapons, both weapons are factored into the Total Attack Power.
Accessories and Armor can also raise your Total Attack Power.
Attack Power is how strong your physical attacks are.

Shield, left: Total Physical Defense Power or base Base Defense/Vitality+
Equipment Defense.
The higher this stat is, the less damage you'll take from physical attacks.
Heavy armor is the best way to raise your Physical Defense Power. Robes
generally give you less Physical Defense.  If a character uses a one-handed
weapon and a Shield, he is likely to increase his physical defense as well. 

Magic, top right: The wand represents Total Magic Power.  If you're using a
Staff, this value will be Base Magic Power+Magical Staff Attack Power.
Accessories and Robes can also raise Total Magical Attack Power.
Magical Attack Power is how strong your Magical Attacks are.

Shield, right: Total Magical Defense Power, or Base Magical Defense+Equipped
Magical Defense. Usually, Accessories, Shields, and some Robes grant Magical
Defense Power.
Magical Defense is your resistance towards Magical Attacks.  The higher it is,
the less damage you'll take from magic.

Hand, left: Total Skill, or Base Skill+Equipped Skill.
This is hit percentage and multiple attack potential.
Skill is typically raised through Hand-to-Hand type weapons and accessories.

Running Man, right: Total "Speed/Agility." Or Base Speed/Agility+Equipped
Speed Agility.
How quickly a character acts in battle and possibly their chance at evading
attacks.
Shoe type Accessories are generally the best way to raise Speed/Agility. 

Star, left: Total Luck, or Base Luck+Equipment Luck
It's believed to affect critical hit rates and possibly Escape rates.
Typically, the only way to raise Luck is by levelling or through equipment.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                        -bs5ba-
Suikoden Tierkreis is a turn-based RPG that uses four members in battle.


HP and MP:
--------------------------------

Enemies deal damage to your Health, or HP, and you deal damage to their health
in return. You can view your health for each member by looking at the top
screen of your DS.
The Value by the Heart Represents Current Health/Total Health.

When HP falls to 0, the character falls unconscious, or is "KO'd," also
known as "Knocked Out."  You can revive them with Revival Statue items, but
they also regain consciousness after the battle ends, but with only 1 HP. 

There are six ways to recover HP:
- Items, such as Medicine and Mega Medicine can be used by everyone.
- Recovery Marks, which, in the Suikoden Tierkreis Worlds, is magic.  If a
character does not naturally have healing magic, such as Healing Gleam, he or
she cannot recover HP through Marks. Recovery-type Marks can be used on
characters that are not 
- Support Marks.  Unlike Recovery Marks, Support Marks are character-specific
and their abilites will not transfer to others.  Support Marks include a type
of Auto-Regeneration, for example.
- Support Characters, such as Erin, can recover some HP to your active party
every round.
- By spending the night at an Inn, you will fully recover your HP and MP.
- Certain story events will automatically recover your HP and MP.

Magic works the same way.  Using special skills, which you do not initially
have at the beginning of the game, you can use your MP.  MP is not damaged
by enemies, however, but when you run out you will be unable to use any more
Magic-type abilities.

You can recover MP in three ways:
- Items, such as Mint, can recover your MP.
- Spending the night at an Inn will fully recover your HP and MP.
- Certain story events will automatically recover your HP and MP.


The Flow of Battle:
--------------------------------

At the start of battle, you will see three choices on the left side of your
screen.  The three commands stand for:

Sword: Individual Command
Person holding a sword: Automatic Battle
Person Running: Flee the battle.

There are also more commands that you will obtain later on.

By choosing Auto-battle, the characters in your current battle party will only
use Physical attacks for a round, and you will not be able to determine which
enemy they target.  Though this seems bad, this is actually a way to quickly
finish off groups of enemies that are weak.  This is also good if you're bored
with random encounters in each area and just want to pay the minimum amount
of attention.  Generally, you will not use this during boss fights.

By choosing "Individual Command," you can choose commands for your characters
yourself.  These are more varied than the simple "Attack" command.

Attack: Allows you to attack Physically.
--------------
Marks of the Stars: A choice you get later in the game, Marks act as "Magic."
Marks require MP to use and when you have no MP left, the names of the Marks
will be grey.  The required MP to use Marks is found in the bottom right of
each option. 
--------------
Cooperative Attacks: Signified by two hands holding each other, Cooperative
Attacks require two or more specific party members in your group.  For example,
Jale and Selen have the Cooperative Attack "Martial Artists."  Experiment with
different characters in battle together and 
--------------
Defense: By Defending, your characters will take less damage per round. If a
Short (S) ranged weapon is on a character in the back row and you choose to
"Attack," the Short ranged character will automatically defend instead. 
You can tell when a Monster is defending by the Yellow marks surround them at
the beginning of the round.
---------------
Items: Allows you to use Items from your Bag.  Unlike previous Suikoden titles,
Items do not have to be equipped onto a character to use them in battle.

Once you've given commands to your party, you're given the option to confirm
you've chosen all of your actions correctly.  Choose to continue and watch
how your actions and the enemy actions work for the round!

Typically, Battle Flow will look something like this:

Round 1 Commands -> Battle: Character/Monster Turns -> Support Character ->
Round 2 Commands -> Battle. . .

And so on.

Be sure to watch your HP every round and use Items or Marks to heal it!


Damage:
--------------------------------

Damage in Suikoden Tierkreis isn't as simple as "Attack Power vs Defense
Power." While it's true that having a weapon with Higher Attack Power will,
generally, do more damage, there are other factors that influence the
damage done to enemies.

First, and most importantly, Rows in battle and Weapon Range.
When choosing a weapon for your characters, it is important to choose a
balance of weapon ranges.  You can tell the range of a weapon by checking it
on the equipped weapon itself.

Short (S) Range: Fists/Hand-To-Hand, Hammers, Claws, Two-handed Swords, One-
Handed Swords
Medium (M) Range: Axes, Spears, Clubs
Long (L) Range: Throwing Knives, Bows, Boomerangs, Magical Staves, Guns

So a character with a Fist in the back row will be completely unable to
physically attack! Be sure that characters are in proper formation before
even beginning a battle.

It's true that a weapon with higher attack power is generally better, however
some other factors can trump it.

First, some characters can dual wield weapons.  The Hero is capable of dual-
wielding one-handed weapons, no one can dual wield a two-handed weapon such as
an Axe or Spear, such as Swords.  Two One-handed swords will almost always
have a higher attack power than a single two-handed weapon.  However, not
every character can Dual Wield and instead can only use Shields with one-handed
weapons.

Next, Skill is an important part of dealing damage.  When you attack, surely
you notice how many times a character can attack each turn?  Well not all of
those attacks Hit.  Skill will help determine how many times a character
can attack each time they run up and how many of those total attacks will
hit.

Weapon "Type" is very important.  This is new to the Suikoden series and you
should master it before getting too far into the game.

There are three weapons "Types," Slash, Strike, and Pierce.
You can tell a weapon type by checking the Equipped weapon.  All weapons, 
except magical staves, have a "type."

Here's a basic list of weapons and their types:
Slashing: One-Handed Swords, Two-Handed Swords, Axes, Throwing Knives/Daggers
Striking: Clubs, Hammers, Bommerangs, Fists (NOT Claws)
Piercing: Spears, Bows, Claws (NOT Fists), Guns

Certain enemies have certain strengths and weaknesses to weapons.  You can
see an enemy weakness when targeting them in battle. 

The Slash, which is Sword and Axe-type weapons, is denoted by a crescent.
A large, circular star-ish shape represents Strike, which is Fist and Club
type weapons. The yellow shape that seems to be facing upwards, in something
of a triangle or arrowhead shape, represents pierce, which is Spear and Bow
type weapons.

If, when fighting a monster, the mark below said monster is blocked out and
has a line through it, it means the monster is resistant to that type of
attacks.  For example, if the Slash icon has a line through it, then Swords
and Axes won't do damage as effectively.  The icon is generally grey when this
happens.

If there is no sign of any of the types of weaknesses or strengths, the
monster in question is neutral towards attacks and your attacks will do
"normal" damage, rather than additional or resisted damage.  


Status Effects:
--------------------------------
The game does very little to explain status effects to you and the instruction
manual doesn't bother to at all.

Status effects, both negative and positive, become frequent throughout the
game.

Also, unlike many, many RPGs using negative status effects on the enemy is
actually useful in Suikoden Tierkreis.  In particular, Sleep, Paralyze, and
Unbalance will make your battles much easier.  You can easily kill some minor
area bosses, the season bosses, by sleeping them and using the "Spark"
command. 

Negative Status Effects:

Poison: Denoted by a skull over a character's head, the character's HP will
be drained at the end of every battle round.  Antidotes cure this status.

Unbalance:  Denoted by a little circle over a character's head, Unbalance
means that the character has fallen off balance, usually due to an enemy
attack or from certain Marks.  Unbalance is cured naturally after a few rounds,
but it leaves your characters defenseless.

Sleep:  Like Unbalance, your characters are completely defensless when slept,
which is denoted by a "zzz" over a character's head.  Characters will wake
up when physically attacked by an enemy.

Paralyze:  Paralyze has a chance of stopping the actions of the character.
When paralyzed, sometimes a character will get the action off and other times
he won't.  This wears off naturally aftera few rounds.

Silence:  Represented with a ". . ." over a character's Head, Silence will not
allow a character to use magic.  However, Physical marks, such as Masterpiece,
work just fine.

Heartbreak: A character inflicted with this status effect, signified by a
broken and crying heart over the character's head, will be unable to
participate in cooperative attacks.

Confusion:  Signified by a black curly line over a character's head, a
confused character does not take direct commands from you and may even attack
his or her own allies.

Bucket:  One of the rarest status effects, this seems to hinder your hit
percentage.

Positive Status Effects:

Barriers:  There are two types of barriers that increase your resistance to
physical and magical damage, respectively.  

Fury/Rage:  Denoted by a red steam over a character's head, Rage raises the
affected character's attack power at the expense of some defense.  Very useful
for your physical damage dealers.  The Mark "Ire" can cause Rage, as can two
characters with a close relationship.  If there are two close characters in
battle and one falls into critical health or falls unconscious, the second
will become enraged automatically.

Spring of Life:  This Mark of the Stars allows a character to recove a small
amount of HP every round.  It's an automatic status effect and cannot be
turned off.

Alert:  Similar to the Rage/Fury effect, Alert instead increases the power of
magical attacks.  Certain Marks of the Stars can cause this effect onto a
character.

After the opening cutscenes and naming your character, you gain control.
Check the glowing blue orb next to where you start to save your game.  There's
nothing else to do in the Gathering Spot, so exit the area and watch a short
scene.  Enter the newely opened Town Square.

Speak with the first man you come to on the right, he's in blue, and you'll
meet Dirk. After a short scene, exit the Town Square and enter the newely
opened Elder's House.

Inside the Elder's House watch another scene.  Speak with Sisuca and Rajim if
you want to, but otherwise there's nothing else to do here exit to the General
Store. You receive MEDICINE x4 and now Jale joins the party.  If you wish, take
some time to shop at the General Store, but there's not a lot you can buy at
this point with a measly 100 Potch to your name. The Village Woman in this
area gives you a nice tip to start with: While trading, Cotton Threads sell
well in Citro Village.

Once you're ready, exit the General Store and head back to the Town Square.
Watch another short scene. Dirk joins your party and you automatically
accept your first Mission. He gives you some brief information on Missions and
tells you that they can be checked from the main menu.

---------------------------------------------------
Mission: Get Rid of Eastern Laggarts
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Mayor Rajim                        -c1m1l-
Reward: 500 Potch
Description:
The Laggarts from the Eastern Hill have been wreaking havoc near the village
lately.  I want you to take care of them, but be careful! They've gotten really
vicious.
Information:
- Citro Village Defense Corps outing.
- Monster Hunting
- Around the Eastern Hill
- By the end of the day.  At this point, the time limit doesn't matter.
---------------------------------------------------

Exit the Town Square and then choose to "Exit Village."  You may want to head
back to the Gathering Spot and save your game before, though.

Note that from now on, you'll find someone at the Gathering Spot that asks you
if you want to rest.  Resting acts as an Inn and allows you to recover any
lost health.  Come back to the Gathering Spot if, at any time during your
mission, you're weakened.

Enemies: Grass Squirrel, Laggart, X Bee

You actually have to get to the Eastern Hill before you can complete your
mission. Spend some time fighting on the world map before you continue to help
level up your level 1 characters.  You should also note the Cooperative attack
that requires all four members of your group.

You'll want to switch Dirk and Marica's positions in battle, since Marica
starts with a Bow.

Just to the south of the village and a bit to the east is a small area called
the Farmer's House.  Speak with the farmer, Yadima, and a short scene will
play.  Though visiting Yadima is optional for now, he is a a recruitable
character later on and it's good to know where he is.

From the Farmer's House, continue east and then north.  Ideally, you'll want
to fight around a bit and maybe hit level 2 or 3.  Dirk gives you some advice
about weapon effectiveness in a short scene next to your goal.

"There are three basic ways to attack: Slash, Pierce, and Strike. 'Slash' with
a one-handed swordm 'Pierce' with a Spear or arrows, and 'Strike' with a cudgel
or fists."

This is very important, so make sure you remember it when choosing weapons for
your party members later on. Continue north and enter the area.

After a short scene a quick battle automatically begins.  It's the same enemies
you've been fighting outside, so you shouldn't have any trouble.  If you're
not having any problems with battles at this point, you may just want to choose
Auto-Battle to reduce the time spent fighting.

Follow the path east and then northwest.  Press the circle button next to that
strange blue chest and you'll receive a MEGA MEDICINE. At the intersection just
to the north, go west.  Open the chest up here and you'll get a CHEERY INCENSE,
which will be a useful item for a boss.

Head back to the intersection and head east this time.  A large and glowing
blue orb, identical to the one found in the Gathering Spot, will act as a save
point. Save if you desire, but otherwise head east onto the next screen.  Head
west up the next short screen and you'll be in a rocky area. Follow the rocky
path west, fight an encounter with some more Laggarts, and watch a scene.  The
choice doesn't matter, you'll just head back anyway since there's a dead end.

Backtrack to the east and watch a scene and you head back west automatically.

After a short scene, you gain control over the Hero. Head west onto the next
screen for another scene. Now would be a good time to save your game and when
you regain control, continue west.

Once you're in the Forest Ruins continue west for another scene.

============================================
Boss: Skull Guts
Items: Iron Orex1

This boss is quite a bit harder than the normal enemies in the area, with
normal attacks doing around 25-30 damage a hit.  He also doesn't take a lot
of damage from your attacks, usually only around 10-20.  Fortunately, it
doesn't have a ton of hitpoints, and you'll probably be able to kill it in
two rounds of normal attacks or Cooperative attacks.  Skull Guts is more of a
"mid-boss."  Just keep your HP around 50 and you'll be fine.
============================================

After a short scene, you're pretty much forced to "Run the Other Way," and
you'll head west automatically.  Continue west through two screens, there's
not much to do, and watch a scene on the third screen.

============================================
Boss: Skull Guts x3
Items: Iron Ore x3, Medicine x2

As the game suggests, you can now use Marks of the Stars.  With three Skull
Guts, you'd easy be overwhelmed with just physical attacks, so have everyone
use their "Marks."  Your hero has Breath of Flame, Marica has "Healing Gleam,"
which is used to heal characters without using Medicine items, Jale has "Bind
Flash," and Dirk, unfortunately, doesn't have any.

Stick with normal attacks with Dirk and Marica while Jale and your Hero use
their "Marks" on separate foes. The Marks should do over 100 damage each and,
paired with Marica and Dirk's physical attacks, you should easily be able to
clear out the first Skull Gut on the first round or, if you're lucky, the 
Hero's Breath of Flame might kill the first in one hit and your other
characters will kill the second Skull Gut on thefirst round.  Either way,
on the second round, have the higher MP Hero, Jale naturally has 10 or so less
MP than the Hero, use Breath of Flame on the third Skull Gut and have everyone
physically attack.  That should end the battle.

You probably won't need healing in this fight, but if you do, heal anyone who
has less than 50 HP with Marica's Healing Gleam.
============================================

You receive the SHINING LEGACY. Your HP and MP have been completely restored
and now you need to walk out. Head south off the boss screen and then back
east through three screens and when you exit the ruins, watch another scene.

Head back east two more screens and watch a scene. Mission Accomplished!

Now back at the Eastern Hill, head east back to the larger screen and then
head west to the intersection, where you should head back south.  Continue back
west and onto the world map.

Head east first and enter the Farmer's House.  Speak with Yadima here for a
short scene.  You can come back here later, since Liu wants to head back to
Citro, first.  Head back to the World Map and go back north and re-enter
Citro.

Mission: Track Down Marica's Double
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Marica                              -c2m2d-
Reward: Bone Axe
Description:
It's bad enough she's pretending to be me, but then she threatened the
villagers with a huge axe, too?!  We've got to find this girl and see who she
is!
Information:
- Find Marica's Double.
- Looks just like Marica, but is reportedly wielding a big axe.
- Went off into the north forest.
---------------------------------------------------

Since you probably have a ton of Laggart Pelts on you, Liu suggests you visit
the General Store before continuing.  Listen to his recommendation and speak
to the woman in pink near the back of the screen.  Originally, when you spoke
to her before, she told you about Cotton Threads.  This time, she allows you
to trade.  Choose to sell Trade Goods and sell some of your Laggart Pelts. If
you were lucky enough to get any Cotton Threads to drop, sell some of those,
too.

Now that you should have some money, I suggest upgrading your equipment.
Buying a Leather Armor or two for your characters is a good idea. Please note
that the Robe is something of a waste for Marica, since her Mark is healing,
which doesn't increase with Magic Power.  If you lack the Potch for three 
sets of Leather armor, one for Jale, the Hero, and Marica, you might as well
get the Robe and the other two Leather armor.  If you still have extra money,
you may want to buy two Kukris for your Hero and have him dual wield over
using the Cudgel, but you'll lose 2 attack power that way. It's your choice.
At the very least, I'd suggest getting one of them so you can dual-wield it
with a powerful sword you'll get later on.

Remember that you can save your game at the Gathering Spot, but otherwise,
there's nothing more you can do in the town.  As you exit the village, watch
a scene. Dirk leaves your party.

You now have access to the full world map!  If you want to run around in the
area you were before, choose to enter Citro Plains.

If you're feeling really lucky, you can do some risky levelling at this point.
There's a pretty large chance that you will die doing it, but if you succeed,
you'll get 5+ levels in your very first battle.  It's certainly not necessary,
but if you like being overlevelled, go for it.  It takes away some of the
challenge for the next few areas, however.
To do this, you need to enter the Citro Plains and head south beyond the
Farmer's House.  You'll see a lake and a dungeon to the east.  Continue south
and circle around the water to the east and enter the dungeon.  In here, you're
looking for a set of two Ironripper Rats. Not any other groups of enemies,
just two of them.  Escape until you encounter them.  Then, once you do, you
must have your Hero and Jale use their Marks of the Stars on the same enemy
each round until the first one is dead, while Marica uses Healing Gleam
every round.  With the enemies doing 70 damage a hit, it requires a good
deal of luck to survive, but once you kill one monster off, you should be able
to easily deal with the second.  If you are successful in this battle, your
level will skyrocket and you'll be able to kill more enemies here for fast
level building.

Head east on the first screen and watch a scene. Hotupa temporarily joins your
party, but he isn't usable in battle. If you speak with the man on the right,
he will let you rest to recover HP and MP.

There's nothing down the path to the south, so head east from the caravan.
Shortly into the next screen, watch a scene. There are three paths here, but
the eastern and Northern paths lead to dead ends, so head down the south/south-
eastern path. Follow this path east and northeast and watch another scene.

============================================
Boss: Saw Kingfisher - Large
Items: None

This isn't your normal Saw Kingfisher!  This is a pretty straightforward fight,
considering your limited options.  Use Breath of Flame with the Hero and Bind
Flash with Jale every round, while Marica attacks physically.  Have Marica
use Healing Gleam whenever someone takes damage.  If you find your physical
attacks to be stronger than your Marks of the Stars, which is possible
depending on your level, stick with those, but otherwise the boss has very
high defense and you'll probably only be doing a tiny bit at a time.

After a few rounds, watch the scene.
============================================

Marica? joins your group. If you need to rest after that boss, head down the
far southeastern path, which leads to the World Map.  You can head out if you
want to rest at Citro village to resupply or to get some new gear.  You may
have some more Cotton Threads and Wool Yarns at this point, which will sell
well in Citro.

Otherwise, just head north from the boss location.  At the next intersection,
head west and follow the path west to the exit. Continue west through the next
screen, where you should head east until you reach an intersection.  At this
intersection, head up the northern path and you'll go west.  Open the chest
up here and you'll receive a MINT.

Head back to the intersection, this time taking the southeastern path.  After
a few steps, you'll encounter another small intersection. Take the path to
the south and at the end, open the chest for a MEGA MEDICINE. Head back to the
intersection and continue east. Save your game at the glowing blue orb to the
north and as you head east, watch a scene. Exit Flesaria Forest - South.

Once you're on the World Map again, enter the Fortress Ruins.

Boss: King Sawfisher - Renegade

Watch a scene and head southwest onto the next screen and continue west through
the next screen.  You can't go up the stairs to the northwest just yet, so
head south through the door. Continue west, and Marica? won't let you go all
the way, so go south for a scene.

After the scene, head back to the previous scene and head back east. Marica?
still won't let you head west, so just follow the eastern path and watch yet
another scene. You'll find the monster at the entrance, which is about two
screens to the east.

============================================
Boss: Saw Kingfisher - Renegade
Items: Mega Medicine x1

As Marica? says, only she can kill the boss, but anyone can damage it.  This
is pretty much the same battle as the previous one.  The Saw Kingfisher can
deal a good amount of damage quickly, so make sure you heal when you get below
60 or so HP with Marica's Healing Gleam.  Otherwise, attack if your physical
attacks do a good amount of damage or use your Marks of the Stars. 

If no one needs healing, Marica and Marica? can use a Co-op attack that does
an extremely large amount of damage, usually over 150!  You may even want to
use that every round and have your Hero use Medicines if anyone needs healing
while Jale attacks and Marica and Marica? use Counterparts every round.

This is another pretty fast and straightforward battle.
============================================

After the scenes, head back west and south through the screens until you reach
the Gateway again and Marica? eventually leaves your group.

Mission Accomplished! Hotupa joins your group and you can now use him to fight
with you. Moana also officially joins your group at this point, but you won't
be able to use her for some time.

Now we have a new goal.  From the Gateway, head west and watch a short scene
and Moana joins you, however she is unusable in battle. Before you continue,
you may want to make sure you have some Antitoxins on you, since enemies can
poison you in the next area.

the north path, as there isn't anything up there, and head west where you'll
encounter another intersection. Take the southern path onto the next screen.

Another intersection is immediately presented to you. Head up the northern
path and you'll soon reach a sign.  Read the sign, and you'll know which
direction you need to go if you've paid attention to the story.  We're
heading for Grayridge, so head up the eastern path. On the next screen, head
west and then west at the intersection onto the world map.

Watch a scene upon entry.  Enter the Vendor/Trading Post for a scene and, as
you'll notice, prices are absolutely horrible.  Don't bother buying anything
at all, but you needed to watch the scene triggered at the shop to continue.
Though the weapons may be appealing and you may have enough Potch to afford
them, they all have an extra 0 attached so don't be tempted.

If you have any Herbal Medicine from your fights, this is a nice place to
sell them.  Laggart Pelts also sell extremely well here, you should probably
sell the rest of them that you have since Grayridge buys them at one of the
highest prices in the game.  Of course, you could always wait until the next
town, which buys the pelts for 20 Potch more, but that's your decision.

Exit the shops and enter the Inn for another scene.  There's a save point in
the northwestern portion of the Inn for you to use, but otherwise there's
nothing in the rooms.  Exit the Inn when you're done for another scene.

There's nothing terribly important at the alley, so head to "Outside Ch Hall."
After the scene, head east and speak with Gilliam for your next scene.

Mission Accomplished! . . .Sort of.

Exit the Chapter Hall for another scene and listen to their advice.  Head to
the Inn for your next scene, which is triggered by speaking to the Innkeeper.
Logan and Erin temporarily join your party, replacing Hotupa in battle. 
Unfortunately, you can't remove him and use Hotupa at this point.

Characters: Logan, Erin
Items: Iron Shield, Revival Statue, Iron Sword, Iron Ore
Key Items: Noble Steel
Enemies: Shell Baboon, Poison Viper, Spiked Lizard, Armored Spider, Gray
Turtle, Silkmoth Larva
Boss: Six-Eyed Worm, Gilliam, Cynas Conscript x2

The Poison Vipers in this area are particularly nasty, as their normal physical
attack hits your entire front row for 30-40 damage!  Be careful when fighting
them and keep your HP up. They have quite a bit of HP and may cause some
problems at first.

After the opening scene, Logan and Erin officially join your group. Head north
and watch a short scene, the continue east and north and west until you reach
your first intersection. Head down the path to the south and follow this side
path south and west and south again.  Go down the ladder to the next screen.
Down on the lower level, head east and south and at the very bottom of the
screen you'll find a chest containing an IRON SHIELD. head back north and west
up the ladder to the previous screen.  Go back to the intersection, where you
will want to head west. Soon you'll reach another intersection.

At the second intersection, head west and follow the path south until you
reach what appears to be a dead end.  It's not, however, and if you hug
the left wall where there's a light coming out of it.  You'll be able to
walk through the wall!  Head south and you'll find a secret room with a chest
that contains a REVIVAL STATUE. Head back north and back to the intersection.

Head north, the path you didn't take last time, up this path until the very
top of the screen and you'll reach, guess what, another intersection.  Head
east up here and follow the path until, once again, it appears to be a dead
end.  Fortunately, the hidden path should be somewhat obvious this time. Hug
the right wall near the top corner, where the light is, and walk through the
wall to the hidden room where a chest containing an IRON SWORD awaits you.
Head back north and west to the intersection.

Head west and climb down the ladder.  Watch a scene. When you regain control,
walk off the gateway platform to the north and head west. Hug the wall and
exit to the southwest.

Now you should be in a green/yellow glowing area.  Follow the southern path,
ignoring the ladder you'll probably see to the west.  That's the ladder we
went down to get the Iron Shield, so there's no hidden path.  Continue east
until you reach an intersection, where you should continue east.  Soon, you'll
reach a second intersection. Ignore the southern path and continue east,
following the path south until you reach a third intersection. Head south
and open the chest at the dead end for an IRON ORE. Head back north up to the
intersection.

This time, ignore the path to the south and head west, following this path
west and then south until you reach another intersection. Ignore the south
path this time and continue back west. Follow this path north, west, and south
and climb down the ladder at the end to reach the next level.

On B3, you'll immediately encounter a save point to the east.  I suggest
using it. If Jale has been using fists, hand-to-hand, you may want to switch
weapons, since he won't be doing a lot of damage to the boss.

Continue east until you trigger a scene.

============================================
Boss: Six-Eyed Worm
Strength: Strike
Items: Gold Ore, Bone Club

You don't have any super powerful Cooperative attacks this time to kill the
bioss quickly, so we have to fight him the old fashioned way. Fortunately,
the boss only hits for around 30-40 damage a hit and now that you probably
have over 150 HP, that much isn't a problem.  Have Marica use Healing Gleam
any time someone falls below 80 HP and health won't be too much of a problem,
since the boss only gets one attack per round. However, that doesn't mean
the boss doesn't have a trick up his sleeve.  He has an attack that hits
all four of your members and can cause Paralysis.  The Paralysis will be a
problem, since it can hinder your damaging of the enemy.

Since the boss generally likes to use his area attack every round, Marica
may not be able to keep up healing after three or four rounds, so make sure
you watch your HP and use Medicines when necessary.  You'll probably want Jale
to use the Medicines if necessary.

Don't bother with the Hero's Mark of the Star, as it probably won't break 50
damage, meaning his physical attacks are stronger.  You may want to try using
Jale's, though, in order to paralyze the boss and increase the damage that you
do while reducing the amount you take.

Do you see the marks under the Six-Eyed Worm's name? This denotes his strength
and weakness. Jale's strike attacks aren't going to do much damage to the boss
and, in fact, he'll probably end up doing half the amount of your Hero and
Logan. If your Hero has an Iron Sword and Kukri equipped, he should easily 
break 120 damage per round!
============================================

Head back to the save point so that you don't lose your progress and continue
all the way to the east.  After examining the lift here, watch a short scene.
You won't go up just yet, but it will act as a shortcut later.  Exit to the
east for a scene. 

You receive the Key Item NOBLE STEEL and each of your characters have access
to new Marks of the Stars. Take a few minutes to check out your new Marks.
The Hero's Mark is quite nice, and Marica will finally have a stronger attack
to use her MP on.  Check around the room if you want, but otherwise exit to
the west.

Head up the elevator and after a short scene, head south for another scene.

============================================
Boss: Gilliam, Cynas Conscriptx2
Strength: Gilliam: Slash, Pierce | Cynas Conscript: Slash, Strike
Items: Revival Statue, Broadsword, Iron Mail

The three sets of enemies have a good deal of strengths this time around!
One weapon type just isn't going to work here, so I hope you have a variety.
Remember, Swords are Slash, Bows and Lances are Pierce, and Fists are Strike.

If you have Swords equipped on your Hero, have him use Breath of Flame.  If
he has his Cudgel still, have him use physical attacks paired with Masterpiece
on Gilliam. At the start, Marica should use Rain of Spears in order to
damage everything, while Jale uses Two-Way Strike on Gilliam. Logan should
just stick with normal physical attacks on the Cynas Conscripts, since he
likely has a Lance equipped. Breath of Flame should do around 100 damage
and Two-Way Strike should do around 200!  Two-Way Strike does 10% HP damage
in return to Jale though, so watch his HP.

If you use Breath of Flame, Logan's physical attack, and Marica's Rain of
Spears, one of the Cynas Conscripts should fall on the first round, and the
second will fall on the next.  With them gone, go all out on Gilliam.  After
two rounds, he should have at least 400 damage on him from Jale's Two-Way
Strike.

Gilliam is rather powerful, doing around 50 damage a hit, but he unbalances
himself with his attacks so he can't do it every round. If you can quickly kill
off the Cynas Conscripts, damage shouldn't even be an issue unless it's Jale.
Make sure you watch Jale's health because Two-Way Strike eats it up pretty
quickly. Since Gilliam constantly unbalances himself, he's not particularly
much of a threat.

Once only Gilliam is left, keep up with the Hero's Breath of Flame and use any
MP Jale might have left on Two-Way Strike.  Logan, if using a spear, is pretty
out of luck damage-wise, so have him act as a healer with Medicines while
Marica uses Rain of Spears every round. After the 600 or so damage from
Jale, it should only take a round or two more to finish Gilliam's HP off.
============================================

Watch a scene and Logan and Erin leave your group.

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

Shop prices are still extremely high in Grayridge, so don't bother buying
anything. You may be tempted to sell the Ores you received from the many
encounters in the Mines, but they sell rather low in Grayridge

You're automatically given a free night at the Inn for your troubles. Before
continuing, you may want to equip your party members with the new gear you
received as spoils from the last fight.  The Hero does well with the Broadsword
and the Iron Sword found in the Mines and Marica will do well if you equip her
with the Bone Club, since it's a medium range weapon.  With a Medium range,
she can stay in the back row and still damage enemies with physical attacks.
The Iron Mail should go on the Hero or Jale, since they usually stay in the
front line.

Exit the Inn and enter the "Outside Ch Hall" or, Outside the Grayridge Order
Chapter Hall. Approach the gates to the east and watch a scene. You, finally,
receive the PASS.

Mission Accomplished!

When you regain control, exit the Hall for another scene.  Continue west for
yet another scene. Exit the Chapter Hall.

Prices in the shops are finally back to normal at this point, so stock up!
if you've sold all of your Laggart Pelts and Herbal Medicines, you should
have a good deal of Potch. Though Marica may be equipped with a Bone
club, you may also choose to get her a Tree Staff.  This is a nice item that
is has a Long Range and will allow Marica to remain safe in the back row while
still being powerful with Rain of Spears, but it comes at the sacrifice of
attack power. You may also want to get her the Bone Bow, just to have a
character who can use piercing attacks, but I'll leave it up to you to decide.
For Jale, you can upgrade his Fists.  Please note that the Bone Talons
are a piercing attack, so to balance the Hero's Slash and Jale's pierce, you
need someone with a Strike, which the Bone Cudgel covers. Bone talons are
considers "Claws" over Fists.

Before you go all out, though, be sure you do save some money for the next
town. You only want to buy a weapon or two here and spend most of your money
at the next main area, where there will be upgrades.  But certain weapons,
like the cheap Tree Staff, are nice. Also, it's highly unlikely that you'll
be able to buy everything in the next town, so stocking up on at least some
cheap weapons and armor is a good idea. I would suggest holding out on buying
any armor or accessories for now and instead waiting until later. You'll
want around 8,000 Potch on you.

Once you're ready, head into the Inn for another scene.  Erin rejoins you.
Immediately head back inside the Inn and choose to edit your party members.
Put Hotupa back in your party and click "Edit - Sup." Erin has joined you, but
she isn't being used yet.  Add her to your party to receive her Repose effect,
which will restore one Ally's HP at the end of every round.  Unlike battle
members, you won't have to equip Erin with anything.

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

After the opening scene, I suggest heading immediately for the Weapon Shop.
If you upgraded weapons in Grayridge, you'll find more upgrades here, but
instead I recommend upgrading your armor and accessories.  There are some nice
accessories for Marica's magical attack power, preferably the Magic Armband.
You probably won't have enough money for a set of Full Plates, so stick
with an Iron Mail or two.  If you still have money, upgrade Marica's armor, but
she shouldn't be getting hit as often if you have her in the back row.

There are no gear upgrades for Hotupa's Axe, but after buying armor, if you
still have money, you may want to buy another BroadSword or some Iron Talons.
Keep Marica on a Tree Staff and a Bow and only upgrade her if you have excess
Potch. 

If you lack Potch for every upgrade you want, the Gold Ore from the last boss
is good to sell in Cynas, as is the Laggart and Lizard Pelts.  Glow Beads sell
somewhat well, but you'll be able to sell them for more later on. Iron Ores
are nice to sell here, too.  If you moderate your selling, you should be able
to make money now as well as later on.

Once you're finished at the shops and Trading post, it's time to continue.
There's nothing in the Residence, Alley, and the Tower of the Way is closed
for now, so let's just heed the game's advice and go to the Inn. Speak with
the Innkeeper to trigger your next scene. Exit the room and approach the exit
for the scene.  No matter which option you choose, head back to the man's
room.  Your decision in the following cutscenes doesn't alter anything, so
choose what you want.

Mission Accomplished!

Boss: Fergus, Conon
Strength: None
Weak: Fergus: Pierce | Conan: Slash
Items: None

It's not possible to win this battle, but you do need to survive for three
rounds.  Hotupa will help considerably in this, since he can knock either
of the foes off balance with his second Mark of the Stars skill. Just have
Marica heal and otherwise just physically attack. 
============================================

If you have any business left to do in Cynas, such as buying weapons and
armor, do it now, otherwise, exit the city.

Head back to Fort Arc and, after the scenes, just head south and exit to
Grayridge.

Information:
- Let the village know about the Order troops.
- Get a head start by going through the mine Gateway to the Fortress Ruins.
---------------------------------------------------

Once you're done with the cutscenes, prepare your party and enter, once
again, the Grayridge Mines. Head north for a short scene and use the elevator
to reach the cellar.

Once you're in the cellar, head west beyond the save point and head up the
ladder.  On the greenish level, head north and east until you reach the
intersection, where you should head north.  Follow this path north and east
until you reach the next intersection, where you should head north. At the
next intersection, head west and at the next intersection, ignore the path to
the north and continue west. Head up to the next screen, where your scene
plays.

Marica and Jale leave and Mission Accomplished!

Head off the Gateway screen for another scene, where you should tell Moana to
touch the book. Finally, Moana joins you even though she officially "joined"
you a long time ago.

You start in the Fortress Ruins Tavern.  You can explore a bit if you want.
To the west is the second floor residence, but there's nothing there for now.
Head to the right and exit the Tavern into the Entrance.  Save your game
and exit to the north.  Then follow the path all the way west and enter the
western door, where a scene plays.

You're given some time to prepare, so exit the strategy room as you wish, save
your game if necessary, explore, speak with Jale and Marica, and when you're
ready, talk to Liu and tell him you don't need any more time to prepare.

For this, you have three parties of two each.  Your Hero and Marica are the
first Party, Jale and Hotupa are Party 2, and Logan and Dirk make up Party 3.

You'll probably want to change around Dirk and Hotupa's gear, since they've
been in and out.  Be sure that Logan has some decent gear, as well.  Finally,
make sure both members of each group do different types of damage.  When you're
ready, choose to Head Out.

Mission: Defend Citro Village!
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Main Character                      -c3m8d-
Reward: 10,000 Potch
Description:
The Order troops are here! We gotta stop 'em here in this forest or at the
castle! We ain't lettin' them any closer to our village!
Information:
- Engage the Order units.
- Battle them at Flesaria Forest.
---------------------------------------------------

After a few scenes, the Hero and Party 1 get into an encounter with two Cynas
conscripts.  This is just a normal fight and the enemies are the same ones
you encountered during the fight with Gilliam. They're strong to Slashing,
so you'll want to use Marica's magic spells to help deal damage. In fact,
Rain of Spears will probably kill off the weaker Conscript - Staff, while
physical attacks on the second round will kill off the Sword/Shield.

After the next few scenes, you're forced into another boss fight.

============================================
Boss: Fergus, Conon
Strength: None
Weak: Fergus: Pierce | Conan: Slash
Items: None

Like before, you're not going to be able to win this fight, but keep Marica
on healing duty, since damage is going to come pretty quickly with only two
members in your group.  Heal if you hit around 80 HP and on the third round,
the battle ends.  Don't waste MP, there's very little you can do to these
foes.
============================================

After a few more scenes, Jale, Marica, and Liu join your group for the next
events. There's not going to be any fighting, so don't worry too much about
preparations.

Exit the strategy room and head east down the stairs into the entrance hallway.
In here, save your game and, if necessary, head out two screens to the east
and speak with the Wanderer there.  He will also let you add a Support Member,
in this case, Erin. It's not really necessary at the moment, though.  Head
back to the Entrance Hall and exit south to the Plaza.  Continue west through
the Plaza to trigger the next events.

Mission Accomplished!

We're not done yet! Asad and Chrodechild give you some important information 
and are just east of the starting point. Exit the Strategy room and head east
down the stairs into the Entrance Hall.

Before leaving, be sure you speak with Moana.  She gives you the rewards for
every required story quest you've done so far.  These include 500 Potch, a
Bone Axe, 500 Potch, 5,000 Potch, 50 Potch, 5,000 Potch, 5,000 Potch, and
10,000 Potch!  At the very least, you won't be having problems with Potch
for a bit. You can't accept any new quests at this time, unfortunately.

From the Entrance Hall, head east through two screens and watch a scene.
Once it's over, head back up to the Strategy room and speak with Asad.  Choose
"Yeah." Asad and Chrodechilde temporarily join your party. 

At this point, you get to name your Company. It's referred to as
"[Name] Company."  When you're done, be sure to put Chrodechild in the front
row and move Marica to the back.  You may want to put Asad in the front as
well.

dog.
Information:
- Go to the Magedom of Janam.
- Head East.
---------------------------------------------------

When you're ready to leave, head to the castle Entrance Hall and exit to the
east.

On the World Map, a short scene plays and the Mislato river is now available.

Note:  If you haven't been exploring at all, you'll notice that the first
Season Change occurs at this point.  This is important because different
monsters come out at different seasons and some quests have a season
requirement to do.

After the short scene, head east. Ignore all of the side paths that go into
the river, as they all leads to dead ends. On the second screen, head east
until you reach the intersection. Most paths in this are are closed for now,
so you can't explore the River completely.  Just keep heading east and southeast
until you run into the Save point.

Keep heading East to the next screen and you'll soon find a large open area.
The first south exit is blocked, but the second southern exit, to the far
southeast, leads to a new screen with a chest that contains a MISLATO SALMON.

Head back to the previous screen and exit to the northeast.

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


Watch a short scene and you have free reign.  The Weapon shop should be your
first stop, as always.  Buying two Magedom Swords for your Hero to dual-wield
would be the strongest choice for him.  If you're using Marica as a mage, you
may want to get her a Ruby Rod, but there's also a new Bow for her.  Buy her
whatever you wish.  The Adept's Singlet has decent defense and adds 4 attack
power.  It's a good choice, but if you're looking for pure defense, the
Scale Mail is the best. If you haven't gotten at least one Magic Armband for
Marica yet, now is a good time. A Gauntlet is good for your main character,
who is probably a main source of physical damage.

For the rest of your gear, try to balance out Pierce and Strike.  Don't buy
too much!

When you're done buying equipment, head to the Imperial Plaza and Chrodechild
leaves your group. After the scenes, the Arcane Academy opens up on the city
map. Enter it for your next scenes, calling Rizwan "Her Bagship" is 
particularly amusing. You receive the key item FIERCE REGALIA. You learn some
more skills for your Marks of the Stars.

Afterwards, do as told and touch the red sphere.  This allows you to manipulate
the Marks on each party member. For now, there's not a lot that you can do,
but later on more will be available.

When you're done, exit the area.  After a scene, you have access to new areas
in the town, such as the Blade's Outpost. There's nothing important to do
there just yet and the Plaza isn't terribly important, so just exit the city
when you're done exploring.

Head back to the Fortress Ruins and watch a short scene in Flesaria before
finally arriving back.

Once in the Fortress,  head west into the Entrance Hall and watch a scene.
Head upstairs and to the west into the Strategy Room/Great Hall. During the
scene, you name the Fortress.  It's called "Castle [Name]" by the game.

Mission Accomplished!

At this point, I'd like to point out something important.  Since we don't
have Viki to teleport us around in Suikoden Tierkreis, we must use Gateways
for transportation.  If you speak with the person outside of the Gateway in
your Headquarters, you can warp around without using up "days" per season. At
this point, Grayridge is the only place you can visit through the Gateways.

Once you've finished the scenes, head east into the Entrance Hall. Moana gives
you some information about required quests. You must do all three to continue
with the game. But, before accepting any, we have some recruiting to do first!

Also, don't forget to pick up your 10,000 Potch reward from Moana.

Head into the Tavern and speak with Erin, who will allow you to change party
members.  Pick whoever you wish to bring and then head back over to the
Gateway.

---------------------------
Character: Anya     -c3cra-
Location: Grayridge Mines
Prerequisite: Having named your Headquarters.
Description:
After the scene with Atrie once you've finished the Magedom events, that is,
once you've named your Headquarters, head to Grayridge. Enter the Mines from
the town map.  If you've not seen the inventor scene here, you'll see it now,
but otherwise head just to the east and you'll see a character near the top
of the screen. She's on the first screen, it's hard to miss her. Speak with
Anya and ask her "You wanna work for us?" to recruit her.

If you're late in the game, you can find Anya in the Alley, which is accessed
from the Town Map.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Selen    -c3crs-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Flower Season
Description:
Oh, Selen's not fun at all to recruit.
After the scene with Atrie once you've finished the Magedom events, that is,
once you've named your Headquarters, you need to walk around outside until it's
Flower Season.  To tell which season is Flower, look at the top left corner.
Flower Season is represented by an open flower, NOT the Flower that is closed.
The first Flower season in the game occurs two months after the game starts.
If you've not been wandering around and exploring, Flower Season should just
be starting by the time you name your Headquarters.

Enter your Headquarters during Flower Season and watch a scene. Once you've
watched the scene and have been introduced to Selen, exit the castle and walk
around outside until the next Flower Season.  That is, around 90 days through
the three seasons.  When it's Flower Season again, enter the Castle and you
should automatically get a scene.  If you don't, try resting at the Inn or
finishing any storyline Missions you're currently on. It does not matter if
Jale is in your party or not to encounter Selen.

Your second encounter with Selen is a real fight and, depending on your level,
this is not an easy fight at all.  If you're trying to fight Selen as early as
possible, it's going to take some luck to kill her. Jale should start off
by using Bind Bolt and hope you Paralyze her.  Selen will probably be doing
over 100 damage a hit, so she's easily capable of killing you in two hits.
You're just going to have to wait until she unbalances herself to damage her.
You must absolutely keep your HP over 210 at all times or Selen will destroy
you in one hit.  At low levels, this battle is highly luck based, so you
may want to wait until around level 25 or so to do it.  That's not saying it's
impossible to beat her around level 17 or so, though. You need to be liberal
with Mega Medicines and Mints in order to beat Selen quickly. If the battle
drags on too long, even if you have good luck you'll lose. If the battle
goes absolutely perfectly and Selen is paralyzed by the first Bind Bolt,
use Two-Way Strike twice, then attack physically and heal until she dies.

I would suggest that, if you lose, you reset and try to beat her again, since
walking around until Flower Season can be somewhat annoying. If you lose, you
must wait until another Flower season comes along.

Once you beat Selen, she joins you.

Storyline Missions can hinder your progress in this quest, so when you're
recruiting Selen, be sure not to have one active.
---------------------------

Now that we've spent some time recruiting the characters possible at this
point, we should continue.  You can do the three quests in any order you wish,
but I am going to start with the First Empress Consort quest.

HUGE NOTE: Recruited characters, such as Selen, do not normally begin with
their Marks of Stars.  Instead, to give the characters their marks, you must
equip them by touching the large glowing Red Orb in the Headquarters Entrance
Hallway.

Chapter 4 is an interesting Chapter because the game splits off here into
three paths.  Though you can eventually do them all, you only need to complete

Reward: 5,000 Potch
Description:
I have a request for you already.  Nothing too hard. Just want you to go scout
and Order fortress. I'll give you the details when I see you, so please come
to El-Qaral.
Information:
- Scout the Ladzaa Fortress.
- Find out the details at the El-Qaral Imperial Palace.
---------------------------------------------------

Note: If you've completed the other quests, you cannot start this one until the
others are completed and reported, which means every event that happens after
the events must be completed, too.

A scene plays when you accept this quest from Moana.  The goal is now El-Qaral,
which is just a click away on the World Map. Enter the Imperial Plaza to
trigger the scene. 

You're required to pick party members at this point.  Your Hero and Asad are
required members, so just pick two more.  Try to keep a nice balance of
weaponry at your disposal.  Usually, 3 melee and a mage work best, but it's
not really imperative. I like to bring Marica and Jale with Erin along for
support.  Just use whoever you like, one character isn't going to make or
break a battle, just be sure that you can access multiple weapon types.

- Go North along the Mislato River.

When you're done, exit El-Qaral and enter the Mislato River. Be sure that if
you go exploring before you enter the river, you go back to El-Qaral first so
that you enter the river from the eastern side.

Follow the path west back one screen to where the save point is.
When you can, head up the path to the north to an area that was previously
blocked off.  There's a four-way intersection here.  Head over the bridge to
the west and you'll immediately reach another intersection.  Go over the 
northern bridge and open the chest here for a SAPPHIRE ROD. Head back to the
intersection and go west.  Head over the next western bridge and open the
chest here for a MAGEDOM SWORD.  head back east two intersections until
you reach the open area, where you should head northeast.

On the next screen, watch a scene. Head east onto the next screen and follow
the path north, then east, and then southeast beyond the large open area.
Continue north up the path until you reach an intersection.  Actually,
this is just another large open area, but it is disguised well by the large
rocks impeding your path.  The fastest way to the next screen is just to
head straight west. There are no items on this screen, so don't worry about
the side paths.

On the next screen, watch a scene. 

You're immediately forced into an encounter with three Cynas Conscripts, two
Conscript - Swords and one Cynas Archer.  They're weak to Strike and strong
to Slash and Pierce like in every other battle with them.  Have Marica, if
you brought her, use Rain of Spears to kill off the Archer and damage the
rest of the enemies, while the rest of your party uses physical attacks.  It's
a required battle, that doesn't mean it has to be difficult.

Once again, you're forced to remake your party to include a character.  Just
pick who you want and head back to El-Qaral.  Head all the way east and then
all the way south, and follow the path northwest, west, and south back to the
previous screen. Continue southwest through the next scren until you're back
at the river.  Keep going south here until you hit the bottom, then head east
to the next screen. Head to the northeastern corner of this screen and exit to
the World Map.

Enter El-Qaral.

Watch a scene upon entry and enter the Inn, where another scene plays. Exit
the Inn and both Missions are Accomplished!

Information:
- Get Cougar back to his home world.
- Use the Gateway in your Headquarters.
---------------------------------------------------

Head back to your Headquarters, the Fortress Ruins, and watch a scene.

Wahie joins you as an ally.  Mission Accomplished! Head back out of the
Gateway screen and watch yet another scene. Zahra and Eunice join your group,
too.  

Make sure that before you continue, you check the glowing Red Orb so that
Zahra can learn his Marks of the Stars, which make him a very good healer.

In the Entrance Hall, watch a scene. 

Pick your party, which much include the Hero and Liu. I suggest using Selen and
Jale if you've recruited Selen, as she and Jale's Cooperative attack will be
quite useful.

When you're ready, head west of the Plaza to the main entrance.

============================================
Boss: Porpos, Porpose Soldier x2
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: Mega Medicine x2, Trident

This isn't really much of a boss fight.  The Porpos and Porpos soldiers are
slow and will generally attack last.  You'll probably be able to kill one, if
not both, of the Soldiers off in one round with simple physical attacks.

The Porpos does hit rather hard, though, around 60 damage more of the time,
so make sure you keep your characters around 100 HP.  You may want to have Liu
use his defense increasing Mark, Defense Shield, on anyone, including himself,
who has low defense in order to limit the damage taken.

If you're using Jale and Selen, you can probably break 600 damage on the main
Porpos.  With that much damage, a few more attacks will finish him off.  This
isn't really much of a boss, more like a strong normal enemy.
============================================

Head back into the Entrance Hall to trigger another scene. Head upstairs here
to continue the scene, then head through the eastern door.

You're not in Flesaria Forest - North.  Follow the path west and at the split
continue west. Head south at the second intersection and head onto the next
screen. Head north-northeast until you reach the split in the road, where you
should head east, towards Grayridge. On this next screen, a scene occurs.

============================================
Boss: Nova
Strength: None
Weak: Strike
Items: None

Since Liu left your party and you haven't had a chance to add a fouth
party member, you may have some trouble here.  Fortunately, this is another
unwinable battle, so you just have to survive for a few rounds.  You'll
probably end up using your main character as a healer while your other
members just attack physically.  The boss does around 70-80 damage with each
attack, so keep your HP up.

After three rounds, the battle ends.
============================================

Watch the scenes.  It's time to accept another of the Consort Quests at this
point. But before doing so, we also have a few more characters that we can
recruit.

---------------------------
Character: Sisuca   -c4css-
Location: Citro Village
Prerequisite: 10 members recruited into your Army.
Description:
After you've recruited 10 members into your army and after the events with
Dirk in the Headquarters you can recruit Sisuca.  You first need to see a
short scene with her on the World Map, where she mentions that your army has
gotten quite large.  Then, head to Citro Village and enter the Elder's House.

Watch a scene and Sisuca leaves. Head back to your castle and enter the
bar for another scene with Sisuca, where she officially joins.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Tongatihi-c4ctg-
Location: Corridor
Prerequisite: None
Description:
You must have finished the events in the Corridor and have access to it, so
once you've brought Cougar back to your Headquarters and watched the scenes
with him you can start this quest.

Once you're in the Corridor, head off the screen to the right and speak with
the Wanderer Man for a scene. 

Head back to Moana and accept her Mission "Window Information," which should
now be open.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Window Information
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Tongatihi                          
Reward: 100 Potch
Type: Party
Dispatch: 10 Days
Rank: 1
Description:
Please gather as much information about Windows as possible. Knowing your
Company, I bet you can even search other worlds! Signed, Tongatihi.
Information:
- Gather window Information
- From other worlds, too.

Just deploy anyone for this quest.  You're not going to be able to succeed at
it no matter which you do, so just send one person out and wander around for
five days and come back with a failed Mission report.
---------------------------------------------------

Once you've failed the Mission, you need to accept it again later on.  If you
walk around a bit and the quest isn't showing up, complete another quest or
continue through the game a bit. 

Soon, another Quest will show up from Tongatihi.
---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Windows from Beyond the Gateway
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Tongatihi                          
Reward: 100 Potch
Description:
Please gather as much information about windows in other worlds as possible.
Otherwise, my head is going to start hurting again. . .OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
Ouch! Ouch!
Information:
- Gather window Information
- From as many places in the Infinity as possible.
- Deployment Period: 10 Days

Just deploy anyone for this quest.  You're not going to be able to succeed at
it no matter which you do, so just send one person out to wander around for
ten days and come back with a failed Mission report.
---------------------------------------------------

After you've failed both Quests, Window Information and Windows from Beyond
the Gateway, head back into the Corridors and speak with Tongatihi. Ask him
"Well, can you make us Windows?" and he'll join you.

Quest: 2nd Empress Consort Rizwan
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Rizwan                              -c4cq2-
Reward: 5,000 Potch
Description:
We'd like your help with some Chronicle research. Please bring Mubal, and a
few of your people who have powerful Marks of the Stars, to the Academy. 
Information:
- Help with Chronicle Research
- Find out the details at the Arcane Academy.
---------------------------------------------------

Note: If you've completed the other quests, you cannot start this one until the
others are completed and reported, which means every event that happens after
the events must be completed, too.

A scene plays when you accept this quest from Moana.  The goal is now El-Qaral,
which is just a click away on the World Map. Enter the Imperial Plaza to
trigger the scene. Make sure you take Rizwan's advice and bring your most
powerful characters!

When you enter the Arcane Academy, a scene plays.  Enter the Prince's Palce,
which is now open on the world map. You receive the ACADEMY KEY. Exit the
Palace and head back to the Arcane Academy. When you're ready, that is, when
you have a full party that you feel is capable of taking on the enemy, tell
Rizwan that you want to continue.

---------------------------------------------------
Mission: Help Research Chronicles
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Rizwan                              -c4m12-
Reward: 10,000 Potch
Description:
We want you to use your Marks of the Stars and let us watch you fight the
Dreambeasts we created via mage arts.  That will help us better analyze the
Marks of the Stars.
Information:
- Help with Chronicle Research.
- Use the Marks of the Stars to fight Dreambeasts.
---------------------------------------------------

============================================
Boss: Rock Dragon
Strength: None
Weak: Slash, Pierce
Items: Gold Ore, Revival Statue

This intimidating boss has a weakness to Slash attacks, meaning your Dual-
Wielding Hero is probably the best choice for damage here.  Have him use 
Masterpiece every round to break 375 damage!  While Strike attackers aren't
strong versus the boss, if you use Selen and Jale you can hit 600 with their
Martial Artists Cooperative attack, which is very nice.  If you're using a
character who can Unbalance the boss, with an attack such as Toppling Blow,
the boss is quite easily unbalanced.

If you're strong, you can probably kill this boss in two rounds, possibly
before it even has a chance to attack you.  In fact, the Hero alone using
Masterpiece could probably kill it in four rounds, as long as his HP is up
and he's Dual Wielding Magedom Swords.
============================================

Don't listen to Rizwan and go back to the Inn.  Instead, you need to examine
the door on the right side of the screen.  The Hero will use his Key and the
door opens. Head through the door and head east through two screens until you
reach a room with a large staircase.

The doors on each floor don't actually lead anywhere, so just keep heading
down the stairs until you've gone down down to the bottom.  Enter the door
and watch a scene.  Head back upstairs and exit the Academy. Enter the
Prince's Palace.

Mission Accomplished!

But we're not done with the Second Consort yet. After reporting your missions
to Moana, you can accept another request. However, this one is for character
Character recruitment.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Arcane Academy Tour
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Geschutz                            -c4rc1-
Reward: 100
Description:
We'd like to tour the Magedom's Arcane Academy in El-Qaral. Could you arrange
that? We'll be waiting on the West side of the Mislato river. Signed, Mage
Arts Students.
Information:
- Arrange an Arcane Academy Tour
- Meet at Mislato River

This quest is rather easy, as you automatically head for the Mislato River
and a scene plays out. Then the Quest is completed and you can go report it
for your reward of 100 Potch, since you pretty much failed it.  You can't
succeed at it, so don't worry. 

This is the first Quest in a series to recruit the set of characters Geschutz,
Minen, and Buchse.
---------------------------------------------------

After you finish the Second Empress Consort Quests and the Arcane Academy Tour,
you're done with the Second Consort's questline and should move onto another

Characters: None
Items: Silver Spear, Bronze Axe, Iron GreatSword, 5,000 Potch
Key Items: None
Enemies: Raparo Bird, Stealth Bird, Skyfish, Inpu
Boss: Ruffian Head, Ruffian x2

While the First Empress Consort's Mission opens up the northern portion of the
river, the Third Empress Consort opens up the souther, previously blocked,
portion.  We're heading south in the river.

From the eastern entrance, head to the southwestern corner of the screen,
where there was once a guard blocking the pathway. Head a bit west and open
the chest for a SILVER SPEAR.  Head south and onto the next screen.

Follow the river all the way south until a small passage opens up to the
east.  Head up the passage and over the bridge and open the chest for a BRONZE
AXE in the chest.  Head back south all the way and follow the path east.
When you can, head north over the small bridge. Ignore the small bridge to the
southeast and head back north. Hug the far eastern wall and pass over the next
bridge.  Open the chest for an IRON GREATSWORD. head west over the set of
bridges, follow the shore north, and head east over the long bridge. Head
east onto the next screen.

Continue south and follow the path east and south until a scene plays.

============================================
Boss: Ruffian Head, Ruffian x2
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: Mega Medicine x2, Revival Statue

Again, this isn't much of a boss fight, more like a set of strong monsters.
if you're using Selen and Jale, Martial Artists will be able to kill the
Ruffian in one hit, but you may not want to bother, since they onl have around
400 HP and you can kill them with just plain physical attacks.  The Ruffian
Head can hit for 70 damage, but with the combined force of your attacks,
he shouldn't take more than a round or two to fall.  Just watch your HP.
Fortunately, he likes to unbalance himself so his ability to damage you is
limited.
============================================

When you regain control, head to the western bank and follow it south. Open
the chest for 5,000 Potch. Head back up and follow the eastern side down onto
the world map.

Enter Salsabil.

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

You can't do anything until you bring Kureyah to the Viceroy's Mansion, so
head there for another scene.

I suggest your first stop be the Trade Harbor to make some money. If you have
any Gold Ore, it sells quite well here, as do Glow Beads.  You'll be able to
sell Glow Beads for more later on, but if you're in need of money now, this is
a fine place to sell them. Herbal medicine sells for 20 more Potch in Grayridge
so, while you may have a few, sell them there instead. You can make some easy
money by buying Buttefly Wings for 3,600 and selling them for over 4,000 Potch
in Grayridge. In contrast, you can buy Eternal Feathers in Grayridge and sell
them back in Citro Village for a nice profit.  At this point, Salsabil isn't
a terribly good place to trade, but you can still make some profit.

The weapon and armor selection is somewhat limited, but there are some very
nice armor upgrades for your characters. For your devoted mage, if he or she
uses magical attacks, I'd buy a Magic Robe and for your other characters,
but them a nice Silver Mail upgrade, if you have the money.  The Clown Shoes
are decent, as well.

If you want to, speak with the Shady woman in the Residence, but otherwise
just head for the Inn, which you get to stay at for free for the night.
After spending the night, head back to the Viceroy's Mansion and watch another
scene at the back of the Mansion. 

Exit town and head back to El-Qaral. Enter the Prince's Palace for your next
scene. 

Mission Accomplished!

Remember to pick up your reward from Moana when you have the chance. You
receive 5,000 Potch from meeting with the Third Consort and 10,000 Potch
for escorting her.

Reinforcements are on the way from the Magedom, so let's engage the Order

Information:
- Engage Order units. 
---------------------------------------------------

When you enter the Entrance Hall, a scene plays. Head upstairs back to the
Great Hall/Strategy Room and watch a scene.

When you're ready, choose "You Bet!" When making parties, you won't have
enough members for full parties yet, so just stick Selen and Jale together
and fill up Logan's party with your weaker members while the Hero gets the
stronger group.  Try to put someone with a Strike weapon in the Hero's
group, since he has a rather strong set of enemies to deal with compared
to the others.

Jale's group has the first fight, which is against three Cynas Conscripts.
As always, they're weak to Strike, so Fists work well on them. Jale and
Selen should be able to kill one each round with Martial Artsts, so they won't
be too bad.  Remember that Claws are not considered Strike damage. 

Logan and his grouo has to fight next, this time with two Cynas Conscripts and
a Cynas Archer.  This group is slightly harder, but if you have a full party,
killing them shouldn't cause too much trouble.  If this is your weakest party,
just put two or three mages into the group and they can easily take care of
the enemies in a few rounds.

Next the Hero fights against three Cynas Conscripts.  If you don't have someone
with hand-to-hand abilities, you're going to have to stick with magic and 
the ability to heal and outlast them.  The Cynas Conscripts have a bad tendency
to defend often, so fighting can be annoying if you're at a low level. 

With all three sets dead, the battle ends.

Mission Accomplished!

Head down to the Entrance Hall and watch a scene with Moana. Remember to report
your Quests! You receive an Argent GrtSword and a Sapphire Rod for finishing 
the Defend the Castle! Mission.

If you haven't noticed, at this time you're capable of using the Wi-Fi
connection if you enter the Corridor and wpeak with Wahie.  Ask him to accept
quests from Other Worlds and you'll be given the option to begin.

There are probably a few more Quests for you to do, if you choose, but
otherwise, head to the Great Hall/Strategy Room and watch the scene. Choose
that you're ready when you are to continue the game.

You should also notice that you can also use Cougar in battle at this point,
even though you couldn't before.

Before continuing, you may wish to complete one Quest that will help you
recruit a few characters later on.  

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Find Somebody
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Morrin                              -c5rc1-
Reward: 1,000 Potch
Type: Leader Quest
Rank: 3
Description:
Could you find somebody for me?  Your Company can do almost anything, they
say, so I'm hoping you can help me. Signed, Woman from East.
Information:
- Conduct a Manhunt.
- Meet in person to get the details.
- Go to the Inn in Salsabil.

This is the first in a set of quests that will allow you to recruit three
characters later on in the game.  Head to the Salsabil Inn and enter the room
in the far back. Watch the scene and head back to Moana. The Mission is
complete at this point.
---------------------------------------------------

You won't be able to complete Find Icas! At this point, but completing "Find
Somebody" now will let you complete "Find Icas!" whenever you have another
girl or two in your army.

When you're ready to continue the game, head into the Strategy Room/Great Hall
and tell Liu you're ready. Cougar is a required member, and he's a physical
attacker who uses unremovable Fists, so build your party around that.
I'd suggest one more attacker and a mage who has some type of healing spell
and, if possible, an attack spell. Sisuca is a decent choice, if you've
recruited and levelled her, but her gear choices are lacking. Selen or
Jale are good choices for the last member, since they both use Fist weapons,
which are Strike. It will help in the next section.

Mission: Ladzaa Fortress Seige

Client: Mage Lord                           -c5m15-

Before you reach Ladzaa Fortress, you must head through the Mislato River.
Follow the path all the way north, southeast, and you'll fight in a scripted
and unescapable battle with the normal enemies Cynas Captain and two Cynas
Archers. Keep heading north and another scripted battle, this time with a
Cynas Captain, Cynas Archer, and Cynas Mage occurs.  If you're using any
underlevelled characters, they're quickly level during these battles, since
most normal areas probably haven't given them great experience.

After the second battle, watch a scene. Just head directly west through the
large open area, it attempts to look like it has a lot of paths but it's
actually just an open area with rocks, and exit to the Northwest into Ladzaa
Fortress.

============================================
Boss: Vaslov, Resno
Strength: Vaslov: Slash, Pierce | Resno: Slash, Pierce
Weak: Strike
Items: None

This is another one of those unwinable battles.  Though you can do a good
amount of damage with characters who use Fists or Hand-to-Hand, it won't be
enough.  Just attack physically and use spells such as Healing Glitter or
Healing Flow to keep yourself around 200 HP.

Both characters are extremely strong. Resno will be doing around 70 damage
with each attack while Vaslov will do 100 or so!  Keep everyone as close to
maximum HP as you can with your healing Marks of the Stars. The Hero has a
nice Healing ability and, hopefully, your second Mage will have one too.

Watch a scene. Mission Accomplished! Go Report your Mission to Moana for
30,000 Potch.

In the Entrance Hall, take the southern exit into the Plaza for another scene.
Head to the Gateway for another scene. After this, exit the Gateway screen
for another scene with Liu.  Head back up to the Great Hall/Strategy Room
for the next scene.

Liu and Cougar are required members, so you may want to add another physical
attacker to balance out your group.  Remember, you can always change members
later at an Inn.

---------------------------------------------------
Mission: Make Allies of the Porpos
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Liu                                 -c5m16-
Reward: 10,000 Potch
Description:
The best way to capture Ladzaa is to get the Porpos-kin to help.  They might
seem like pawns of the Order, but if we can find out why, and help, I bet
they'll help us!
Information:
- Negotiate with the Porpos-Kin.
- Go through the Gineh Valley, Tehah Village and beyond the Ch'olui Mountains.
---------------------------------------------------

After exiting the Strategy Room and watching a scene, head downstairs.

Let's recruit another character before we continue.

---------------------------
Character: Gadburg  -c5crg-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: None
Description:
You can recruit Gadburg once you've begun the "Make Allies of the Porpos"
Mission. 

When you first exit to the World Map after accepting the Mission, you'll
see a scene with Gadburg.  To trigger the scene, you need to exit from the
North, or from the Plaza/Gateway side.  If you warp to Grayridge, you can
also recruit him by heading to your Headquarters, since Grayridge is to the
north.
---------------------------

Now would be an -excellent- time to head back to your Headquarters and find
Gadburg.  He has a very good inventory of items.  They're expensive, but
pretty much everything gets an upgrade.  Buy two new swords for your Hero,
I'd suggest the Black Blades, since you only lose 2 attack for 5 extra Speed.

The Warrior Armor is excellent armor for your Hero, not only in defense, but
it adds Physical Attack power as well.

What you need to do to increase the Blacksmith's selection is trade, trade,
trade!  You're going to need to trade a ton from one village to another in
order to unlock new weapons and armor.  Just selling a dozen won't work, it
needs to be a lot.

A good place to start would be buying Butterfly Wings in Salsabil and
selling them in Grayridge. You need to, literally, sell 30 Butterfly
Wings to the Butterfly Robe to appear in the Armor section.  Fortunately
for you, Butterfly Wings stack up to 10, so it only takes three trips from
Citro to Grayridge to fill that requirement. The Butterfly Robe costs
80,000 Potch, but is a very nice item that not only has a defense of 60, but
adds 10 Magical attack and 20 magical defense!  At the very least, you may
want to spend some time trading and experimenting with, literally, hundreds
of items in order to unlock new armor.  You'll make a nice profit in the
process. I'd suggest waiting until a bit later in the game, however, to
spend a lot of time trading.  It can be somewhat mind-numbing just wandering
back and forth between areas and you don't want to ruin the normal game for
yourself. 

Finally, be sure to head to Grayridge and enter the Chapter Hall.  That
will get you a scene with Luvais, which will trigger a recruitment event
with him later on.

~~~                            Gineh Valley                                 ~~~

Items: Mixed Herbs, Peach Juice, Healing Incense, Truffle Stew
Key Items: None
Enemies: Venus Truffle, Bee Spider, Hammer Tongue, Water Boar, Inpumeleon,
Sledge Mantis
Boss: None

If, for some reason, Gineh Valley isn't on your World Map, head into Flesaria
Forest - North from the Grayridge side.  Remember that sign?  Well, this time
take a left at the intersection and exit the area at the top, which leads to
Gineh Valley.

Once you're at Gineh Valley, follow the path west until you reach an
intersection.  Take the northwestern path onto the next screen and continue
west.  Open the chest for some MIXED HERBS. Head back to the intersection on
the previous screen.

This time take the northeastern path up the slope and you immediately encounter
another intersection. Head southeast here and follow this path under the large
mushroom and then head north when the path tilts north.  As you head west,
open the chest for a PEACH JUICE.  Head back east, south and northwest to the
intersection.  Exit the screen to the northwest.

NOTE: 
There's quite a strong "mini-boss" enemy, the Sledge Mantis, to be encountered
in Gineh Valley.  He's just found in a normal encounter, isn't particularly
special, and has no strengths and weaknesses.   Unbalance him with Marks of
the Stars for an easy win.  The Hero's Masterpiece with dual-wielded Black
Blades can almost hit 500 damage.  Liu can do around 350 with Silence Grit,
too.  With the boss taking that much damage, he should only last 3-4 rounds.
Don't waste all of your MP on this sub-boss, since you can encounter him more
than once!
The "boss" does hit for around 100 damage, so keep your HP up.
The Mantis does have a small chance of dropping a rare Giant Bug Shell to
sell at trading Posts.

Head west and you'll soon encounter another intersection. Take the southern
path, there's nothing up the northwestern one, and follow the map all the
way west onto the next screen. Continue west until you hit the first
intersection.  Ignore the southern path here, it just leads to a dead end,
even if it is a nice looking dead end, and head west.  At the next intersection,
continue west and open the chest for a HEALING INCENSE. Go back to the
intersection and take the north path up, and then take the eastern path at the
intersection.  Continue east to the enxt screen, which is hidden under the
Mushroom.  Open the chest here for a TRUFFLE STEW.

Head back to the previous screen and hug the north wall as you head west.
When you change areas, you'll reach the World Map.

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

Compared to your Headquarters if you recruited Gadburg, Tehah village shops
are a bit dry and boring. But they're a good place to upgrade if you lack
Potch, since Headquarters can be a bit pricey.

Head into the Plaza for a scene and exit it when you're done.  The next area
is now unlocked.

If you're interested, head into the Residence and speak with the man in the
back of the area.  He acts as an Index and lets you check out areas,
characters, and game terms.  He'll be recruitable later on. Speak with him
and examine his information 4 times, then ask him to join you.  He won't
join just yet, but it's good to have done this for now.

Before we continue, let's recruit two more characters.

---------------------------
Character: Luvais   -c5crl-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Having seen the event in Grayridge Order Chapter Hall.
Description:
First, you need to watch a scene at the Chapter Hall in Grayridge that happens
with Luvais.  Once you finish the events in Tehah, that is when Liu mentions
the Ch'olui Mountains are available, you can recruit Luvais.

Head back to your Headquarters and immediately upon entry watch a scene.  If
you've not seen the scene in Grayridge, go watch it and if the scene at
Headquarters does not immediately trigger, try progressing through the story
or staying the night at an Inn and coming back to the Headquarters.

If you're still having trouble, you may need to see Luvais in the town of
Tehah.

When the scene triggers, your current party is forced into an encounter with
three "Cynas Man" type enemies.  They're decently strong foes, but they have
no terribly dangerous attacks. After clearing the battle, Luvais joins your
army.
---------------------------

Also at this point there should be another character we can recruit.

---------------------------
Character: Muro     -c5crm-
Location: Gineh Valley
Prerequisite: None
Description:
Once you've completed the events in the Tehah village you can recruit Muro. A
Party Quest, called "Demon Hunting in Gineh" becomes available.  We must
do this Quest to recruit Muro.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Demon Hunting in Gineh
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Peddling Wanderer
Reward: 10,000 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 1
Description:
There's a demon in Gineh valley! I'm not kidding! A big, horned thing! You've
got to get rid of it for us! Signed, Peddling Wanderer.
Information:
- Monster hunting?
- A huge horned man
- Gineh Valley

Enter Gineh Valley from the Tehah Village side, the west side, and head all
the way down to the most southern portion of the screen to trigger the scene.
Continue west and onto the waterfall screen.  You'll see another scene here,
and when given the option, choose "You wanna come with us?" to recruit Muro.
---------------------------------------------------

Choosing "You wanna come with us?" during the scene will allow you to recruit
Muro. Don't forget your reward from Moana!

Enemies: Evil Laggart, Rock Bird, Sword Gazelle, Ball Pig, Snow Fenrir, Rock
Bird Chick
Area Boss - Flower: Rock Bird
Boss: None

Note: Like in Gineh Valley, there's a nasty little "Mini-Boss," known as a
Rock Bird, that you can encounter in a normal battle.  This one hits for
over 100 damage an attack and also has an attack that hits everyone for around
20 damage.  While the Rock Bird is weak towards Slash Attacks and you'll kill
it quickly with just "normal" strategies, he can still deal a good amount of
damage to you if you don't kill him fast. He also has an attack that can break
200 damage, so don't run around with low HP! Not only that, but once you
get further into the area, you can encounter a Snow Fenrir.  This nasty
monster only hits for about 30 normally and has an attack that does around
200 damage, but he can put people to sleep.  If your main attackers are asleep,
you're in trouble.  The Fenrir is also a bit more resiliant and will last a
bit longer than the Rock Bird.  Please note that if you're doing this section
while in Sprout or Bud you won't encounter the Rock Bird, he only appears
during the Flower Season. 

Head north until the intersection and then take the northwestern path. Follow
this path until the next intersection.  Take the eastern path and there's
another intersection almost immediately.  Follow this path west and open the
chest at the end for a FUR CAPE. Head back east and then take the northeastern
path at the intersection.  Follow this northwest onto the next screen.

Watch a scene. Fow now, at the large, open, intersection, take the north
and slightly eastern path onto another screen.  Follow this path northeast
and at the intersection head south.  Open the chest for a CH'OLUI CABBAGE.
Head back north and when you're at the large open area, take the far western
path and open the chest at the end of it for a JANAM POTION.  Head back east
and approach the house to the north to trigger the next scene.

You can't enter the house, so we just need to head back. Head down the
southwestern path and head south onto the large, open screen. Back here,
at the intersection, take the northwestern path and then the southern path
at the intersection.  Head west onto the next screen.

This is a nice confusing screen. It's pretty much a big circle.  First, take
the north path and then go directly east.  Open the chest for a WOOL HAT.
Head back south and follow the path west until you reach another intersection.
Continue west and follow this path to the next screen.

Continue south and head west, the eastern path is short and has nothing, for
another scene.  Listen to Dogha's advice and take the northern path for the
next scene. Continue west onto the next screen.

At the intersection, take the northwestern path and open the chest at the end
for some FUR SHOES. Head back to the intersection and go south. At the next
split, take the eastern path off the screen.  Open the chest for a WOOL ROBE.
On the previous screen, go west and watch a scene as you head south. 

Exit the mountains to the south.

After the scene, choose "Entry" from the Town Map for another. Head west to
continue the scene. When possible, enter the Temple for another set of scenes.
At this point, the fourt member in your party is automatically kicked out
and you're stuck with the required party of Hero, Cougar, Liu, and Nimni.
Unfortunately, that also means they kicked out your supporting character.
Take some time at the Inn to replace him or her once you have the chance.

Exit the Temple. You also now have access to the rest of the town.  There's
nothing terribly exciting at the weapons and Armor shops, though the Silver
Boots are decent if you're willing to sacrifice the Attack off of a Gauntlet.
The Stone Armor is pretty terrible and if you have Silver Mails from your
Headquarters, you'll want to keep them instead.

When you're done, Exit the town and head to the next dungeon.

Characters: None
Items: Seashell Shield, Trident, 30,000 Potch, Shell Backplate, Mystic Medicine
Key Items: Bds of Priestss, Cerulean Flux
Enemies: Simurgh, Naineneis Turtle, Gelfish, Sahagin Head, Piercer Bird, Sea
Serpent, Sea Scorpion, Simurgh Chick
Area Boss - Flower: Simurgh
Boss: Bowing Crab, Conon

Like in the previous area, there's a few "Mini-Bosses" to deal with in the
Coastal Cave.  Once again, they're just strong normal enemies, but they're
the ones most likely to kill you.  The Simurghs have an attack that does 20
damage to everyone as well as a normal physical attack.  They're not terribly
strong.  You'll only encounter Simurghs in Flower Season.  In Sprout and
Bud you'll encounter Simurgh chicks.

This is an extremely annoying dungeon.  Have fun! To make the journey easier,
you'll probably want around 30 Medicines.

Before continuing, make sure you equip Nimni with some decent gear.  Take off
his Stone Armor and replace it with something like a Silver Mail.  If you
have a Trident, equip that onto Nimni, too.

Head straight up north for another scene. You receive the BDS OF PRIESTSS.
Continue north and at the intersection head east. Ignore the northern path
and head south.  Follow this path until you reach another intersection, where
you should head north.  Follow this path to the end and open the chest for a
SEASHELL SHIELD. Head back to the intersection and ignore the path to the
south.  It just leads to a dead end with no hidden passage.  Head back to
the previous intersection and head west, which should let you to the very
first intersection in the Cave.

Head north until you reach another intersection. Head west and south down the
path until you hit the next intersection.  Ignore the path to the west and
head all the way south.  At the very end of this path, there's a chest.  Open
it for a TRIDENT.  If you didn't have a Trident equipped on Nimni before,
you'll definitely want to equip this one.  Head back up past the intersection
to the main pathway.  Head north.

You'll find yourself in an extremely large room with Geysers.
     3
  2    4
1        5


To take each Geyser up, you need to just stand on top of it.  I'm labeling
the geysers 1-5, starting from left to right.  See the above image.

Up Geyser 1, the far lower left Geyser, is a chest to the west containing
30,000 Potch. Ignore the other paths, they lead to dead ends.

Up Geyser 2, which is the geyser in the middle of the left side, is a dead
end.

Geyser 3, the central Geyser, is the Geyser to take to continue through the
dungeon.

Geyser 4, the Geyser in the middle side of the right, has a chest to the east
that contains a SHELL BACKPLATE.

Up Geyser 5, the far lower right geyser, is nothing but dead ends.

When you've explored, head up Geyser 3, the central geyser in the group of
five, and continue north to the next screen.

The screen color changes a bit here.  Head north to the first intersection and
take the eastern path.  Follow the path east and open the chest to the north
for some ADEPT'S SHOES.  Then head back to the original intersection. Head all
the way north, ignoring the path to the west, and follow the map east.  At the
end of this path, open the chest for a MYSTIC MEDICINE.  Head back south to
the second intersection and take the western path this time.

Note: Those Adept's shoes you just received?  They're excellent. I suggest
putting them onto the Hero immediately, since at this point he'll probably
be your strongest physical attacker in the group.

Follow the western path north, west, and north again onto the next screen.
Head east across the screen and watch a scene.

============================================
Boss: Bowing Crab
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: Giant Crab Meat, Rainbow Thread

This boss will be a bit harder than some of the previous ones, since your
character options are rather limited.  Your Hero is the only character with a
healing-type Mark and since it's likely he's one of your main attackers,
you're stuck with using items to heal. 

Cougar and the Hero can both breath 500 damage, with Two-Way Spear and
Materpiece respectively.  Liu can do around 250 with his Mark Silence Grit,
which leaves Nimni as the weakest link, therefore the best suited to act
as a healer.

The Crab is quite strong, with an area magical attack that does from 50-60 to
everyone!  That gets a bit overwhelming at times, so don't hesitate to put
more than one character on healing duty.  Cougar is probably a good secondary
healer, since he only has enough MP for two Two-Way Spear attacks. His normal
attacks do around 60 damage, which isn't as bad.  After two rounds, you should
have around 2,500 or so damage done to the boss, so that it only takes one
more round to kill it.  If not, stick with Masterpiece and normal attacks with
Cougar.

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

Watch a scene and approach the far eastern side of the map for another scene.
You receive the CERULEAN FLUX, which unlocks some more Marks for your
characters when you visit the red orb in your Headquarters.  If you haven't by
now, equip swords onto your Hero for a Slash bonus.

Exit the room to the west for another scene. 

============================================
Boss: Conon
Strength: None
Weak: Slash
Items: Ninja Garb, Revival Statue

While the game is kind enough to restore your HP and MP, you still have to
fight Conon this time.  It's not just a "wait three rounds and the battle ends"
type fight.

As he's weak to Slash, the Hero should be your main offense in this battle.
Have him use Materpiece every round, which does around 700 damage.  For two
rounds, have Cougar use Two-Way Spear until he's out of MP, then have him help
Nimni with healing. Nimni is the weaker link once again in this battle, so
have him act as a healer by using Medicines when necessary. Silence Grit
should do around 250 damage.  With this strong offense, Conon shouldn't
last more than three rounds.

Conon only attacks once per round and it's typically with a physical attack
that hits for 100 or so.  He can also critical for around 120, but otherwise
he's not a terrible threat.

Try not to use too much MP in this battle, if possible. 
============================================

Now you need to WALK out.  Suikoden Tierkreis doesn't give you Escape
Talismans like the previous games, unfortunately.  

From where you gain control, head south all the way, continuing south when you
hit the intersection.  Ignore the side paths and head down to the next screen.
Continue south and drop down to the lower level.

In the Geyser area, just keep heading south and exit the Caves.

Back in Naineneis, enter the Temple and watch the scene.

Mission Accomplished!  As you exit, watch another scene. Head back to your
Headquarters.

Before heading too far into this Chapter, be sure you've completed Arcane
Academy Tour, as it will help you recruit characters.

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
                                                                        -c6uhq-
Characters: Nimni, Nemne, Semias, Wustum
Items:  10,000 Potch
Key Items: None

Watch a scene upon entry. When the scene is over, head into the Entrance Hall
and speak with Moana to get your reward of 10,000 Potch. Also, be sure to check
the red Orb and equip the new Marks to your characters.

Head up to the Great Hall/Strategy Room.  If you're ready now, say that you're
fine, otherwise, tell him you need more time.

Before continuing, I suggest recruiting two characters.

---------------------------
Character: Semias   -c6crs-
Location: Naineneis, Headquarters
Prerequisite: None
Description:
During the main storyline early in the game you once made a bet with this
character during the Grayridge mines events.  Once you've finished the Mission
"Make Allies of the Porpos" you can finally recruit him.  Head to Naineneis
Inn and speak with him.  he's the red-clothed character.

After the scene, head back to your Headquarters and enter the Tavern, which is
just to the left of the Entrance Hall.  He should be near the stairs.  Speak
with him and he joins you.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Wustum   -c6crw-
Location: Tehah Village, Ch'olui Mountains
Prerequisite: Watch a scene in Tehah Inn.
Description:
First, you need to watch a scene in Tehah Inn.  It has been said this scene
has a season requirement of Sprout, but I was able to trigger it during Flower
Season just fine.  What you just need to do it speak with the owner of the
Item Shop, it doesn't happen automatically. The woman is the woman on the far
left of the screen. 

Next, head back to your Headquarters.  If you're doing this later in the game,
you don't want Asad in your party for the follow events.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Find the Chef
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Shairah                          
Reward: 100 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 4
Description:
Lemme get right to the point. Have you seen a chef named Wustum? If you have,
haul him in here to the Mage City, would ya?  Thanks.  Signed, Shairah.
Information:
- Conduct a manhunt?
- Ask Asad for more information.

If you're having problems triggering this quest, be sure you're not on any
other Leader Quests.

Without Asad in your party, head to El-Qaral and then enter the Imperial
Plaza.  In here, speak with Asad, who should be just on the left.  Once you've
spoken with Asad, go back to Tehah Village and speak with the Innkeeper.

You must then enter Ch'Olui Mountains from the eastern side. Follow the path
north and at the second intersection take the eastern paths to the next
screen.  Here, you should be near the sign.  Head completely west and slightly
north towards the top of the mountain to trigger the scene. 

You're forced to fight two Janam Soldiers and a Janam Mage as the level 10
Wustum.  Just use physical attacks and you'll win easily, since the enemies
are very low levelled, too. 

This finished the Quest and Wustum joins you.  You fail the Quest, however,
and there's no way to complete it. 
---------------------------------------------------

Wustum is a missable character.  You must recruit him before the events with
the desert.
---------------------------

You can also do two or three new Quests at this point.  Other than "Sorry to
keep bugging you!" I'd suggest doing to prerequisite Quest for a large set of
characters later on.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Order Approaches Naineneis
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Porpos-kin                          -c6rcn-
Reward: 30,000 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 2
Description:
It looks like the Order troops are heading for Naineneis! Please help us!
Signed, the Porpos-kin.
- Rescue Nainenis
- Nimni will go along. 

Nimni is required for this quest and the game automatically brings you to
Naineneis, which then sends you to the Coastal Cave.  After the scenes, head
back to Headquarters and report the quest.
---------------------------------------------------

When you're ready, head out by choosing "Let's get going."

You're forced to make two parties, neither of which Include Liu.  The second
party has 3 out of 4 of the Porpos in it, so just add a fourth character and
a support as you choose. 

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
~~~                           Ladzaa Fortress                               ~~~

Characters: None
Items: None
Key Items: None
Enemies: Raparo Bird, Stealth Bird, Skyfish, Inpu, Auster Soldier, Cynas
Conscript, Cynas Captain, Cynas Mage
Boss: Valof, Resno

---------------------------------------------------
Mission: Ladzaa Fortress Seige Again
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Nakil                               -c6m17-
Reward: 30,000 Potch
Description:
A Mage company got too eager and attacked Ladzaa. But they got thrashed, and
now many of them are POWs!  Could you start early? But His Lordship wants to
see you first.
Information:
- Capture Ladzaa Fortress.
- Go to the Imperial Palace first.
---------------------------------------------------

First head to El-Qaral and enter the Imperial Plaza. Exit and watch another
scene, then head to the Blades Outpost from the town menu.  Once the scene's
done, head back to the Imperial Plaza and speak with Asad When you're ready,
tell him "I'm ready when you are!"

This path should look familiar, since you've taken it at least three times
at this point. head north onto the next screen for a scene and then head north,
east, southeast, north, and then all the way west to enter Ladzaa Fortress.

Head west across the bridge into the Fortress and you'll fight a battle with
three Auster Soldiers.  They're weak to Strike and strong to Slash and Pierce,
so Cougar should be effective on them.  They hit for around 50 damage each,
so their damage can pile on quickly. Try to stick with physical attacks, since
you have a boss right after.

============================================
Boss: Vaslof, Resno
Strength: Vaslof: Slash, Pierce | Resno: Slash, Pierce
Weak: Strike
Items: None

Once again, this is a timed encounter.  You're not going to be able to kill
the bosses in three rounds, but you can certainly try.  This battle is rather
easy to survive, just have the Hero use Defense Barrier on everyone and heal
with items or Marks whenever necessary.  The bosses do hit for a good amount
of damage, usually from 50-80, each time, so keep your HP up.
============================================

After a short scene, your other group, which has the three Porpos in it, will
encounter a group of three: A Cynas Mage, Cynas Conscript, and a Cynas Captain.
You may want to use their Seafood Smack Cooperative attack, which damages
all enemies, but it's not necessary.  You can kill them quickly with just
Auto-Attacking. 

Mission Accomplished!

Your characters have left your party temporarily.  Head west and through the
door. Continue west on the next screen and approach the far southwestern wall.
There's no door mark there, so it's rather well hidden, but there is a door.
Watch the scene and Cougar leaves your party.

If you feel that you're not ready, you can tell Asad "Let me think about it,"
to stop the story events.  This will allow you to do any non-storyline Quests
you might have missed, but otherwise, tell him you'll help and that will allow
you to continue the game.

---------------------------------------------------
Mission: Rescue the Prisoners
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Asad                                -c6m18-
Reward: 20,000 Potch
Description:
The prisoners the Order took are being held at an encampment north of Ladzaa
Fortress.  Magedom forces are going to storm it, and we'd like you to help.
Information:
- Rescue the prisoners the Order is holding captive.
- Wait for Shairah to arrive first.
---------------------------------------------------

Watch a scene and head west onto the next screen. Head back east and approach
the door to the exit.  Watch another scene. If you choose to evacuate the
troops, head back west for a short comment from Liu, but the goal is the same
no matter which you choose. Head east out of the Fortress and over the bridges
to watch the next scene.

Mission Accomplished!

~~~                               El-Qaral                                 ~~~

Characters:None
Items: None
Key Items: None
Enemies: Janam Soldier, Janam Mage
Boss: Rock Dragon
El-Qaral Shop Inventory remains unchanged.

You're forced to pick a party that has Asad, Liu, and the Hero in it.  Since
Asad and Liu are both mages, I'd suggest adding one of your strongest melee
fighters.

Head east, south, northwest, and south along the familiar path of the Mislato
River.  Cotninue south through two screens until you cross the small
plank bridge, then head east. Head east through the next screen and exit the
River to the northeast. Watch a scene as soon as you enter the World Map.

Enter the Inn at El-Qaral and speak with the Inn manager to trigger the next
scene.  Though your choice doesn't matter, the correct answer is to help the
Blades.

As you try to exit the Inn, another scene plays and you're instead forced to
split into two groups.  Tell Liu "Yeah, let's go!" When you're ready. When
making your parties, be sure the Hero's party is the strongest.

---------------------------------------------------
Mission: Goodbye, Magedom!
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Main Character                      -c6m19-
Reward: 5,000 Potch
Description:
I've had it with the Magedom!  Our alliance is over! Asad's gonna go rescue
Chrodechild and the Blades, and I'm gonna go get Manaril.  Besides, Shams
asked me to, too!
Information:
- Rescue Manaril from the Arcane Academy.
- Gather at the Mislato River afterwards
---------------------------------------------------

Head out of the Inn and enter the Arcane Academy.  You can still enter the
weapon shop if necessary, but otherwise head into the Academy. 

Head east through two screens and as you enter the third screen you're forced
into an encounter with three Janam Soldiers.  They're pretty normal enemies,
but they do hit decently hard.  Head down the many fsets of stairs until you
reach the bottom of the Academy.  Enter the door at the bottom and as you
head west, watch a scene. Now just head back out of the room and head up the
stairs.  As you might have predicted, when you enter the room where you
originally encountered the Dragon, watch a scene.

============================================
Boss: Rock Dragon
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: Revival Statue

Look familiar? Well, it should. Hopefully you have a healer in your group, but
otherwise, like many other bosses, this strategy depends on who you have. As
always, the Hero should use Masterpiece every round.  If you're using Jale 
stick with Two-Way Strike, if you have Selen, use Shrike Strike.   The boss is
easily unbalanced, so you can beat it before even taking damage if you can
Unbalance it with an attack by Selen of someone who has a skill like Toppling
Blow.

The boss does have a surprisingly high amount of HP, considering.  Your main
goal would just be to keep it incapacitated with Unbalance and you can,
possibly, kill the boss without taking any damage at all.

His main attack, and probably the most annoying, is a roll attack that does
around 40 damage to each character.  Just keep everyone around 170 HP and you
shouldn't have many problems.  Sisuca or Zarah make decent healers here, since
they have healing spells that hit the entire group.
============================================

Exit the Academy.  Enter the Prince's Palace.  When you're done and ready,
exit the town.

The first battle has you with Chrodechild, Meruvis, and Roberto against
two Janam Soldiers and a Janam Mage. The three  allies have a Cooperative
Attack, Night's Veil, to use as you will.  It's not really worth it, though,
since it Unbalances two of your characters.  I'd suggest just sticking to
normal attacks.

The second battle is against Asad's party and whoever is in it.  His group
fights three Janam Soldiers. This battle is easier than the last, since
everyone has their magic to fall back on.

The third battle is against two Janam Soldiers and a Janam Mage in a different
formation.  This time you're using the Hero's party, which should be easily
capable of taking out the enemies.  The Hero himself could probably do it
alone.

Mission Accomplished!

Now you need to exit the Mislato River through the western exit.  Just follow
the river West and southwest and ignore the side paths.  As you approach the
exit, watch a scene.

Characters: Chrodechild, Meruvis, Roberto, Asad, Mubal, Manaril, Zenoa
Items: 30,000 Potch, 20,000 Potch, 5,000 Potch
Key Items: None

After telling Chrodechild you'll help during the scenes, she, Meruvis, Roberto,
and Asad will join your army.  Chrodecild is easily one of the strongest
characters in the game and, like the Hero, she is capable od Dual wielding
weapons.  I'd suggest using her in your main parties often.  Be sure to speak
with the Red Orb to set your new character's Marks. 

Exit the Great Hall, which is no longer called the Strategy Room, and watch
another scene. From where you are now, the Entrance Hall where Moana regulates
Quests is three stories down, but that's not the goal for now.

Head down to the Third Floor Hallway and go through the far eastern door for
a scene. Now Mubal and Manaril join you, too.  Wow! Manaril is a decent mage
and Mubal has some nice single target spells, including the ability to revive
characters, which only Marica had previously.

Head down to the very first floor, where Moana is, and take the western exit
into the tavern area.  Take the northeastern door, up the stairs, and watch a
scene with Jale and Marica. 

Head back to the Entrance Hall, east of the Tavern, and watch a scene with
Moana.  Head to the Gateway screen, which is just south of the Plaza, for
another scene. After that scene, head back up to the fourth floor and enter
the Great Hall, which is the western door.

Roberto is required for this next section, but otherwise just add whoever
you want.  You can't add Chrodechild or Meruvis, because they're off doing
other things.

---------------------------------------------------
Mission: Journey to the West
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Main Character                      -c6m20-
Reward: 20,000 Potch
Description:
They say the west half of the Ch'olui Mountains has turned into plains!  And
there are some Furious Roar people there now!  But I guess we won't know till
we see!
Information:
- Check out the newly-appeared plains.
- Go westof the Ch'olui Mountains
---------------------------------------------------

You can speak with Moana now to accept quests.  You should have a ton
available!

Though you can do it later, you should head out of the Castle for a day and
then head back in.  Watch the scene with Marica and you'll recruit Zenoa.
This scene is actually a required event and if you don't do it now you'll see
it later.

Also, now is a good time to recruit some more characters. A lot of them.

Also, please note that whenever you get the quest "Get Rid of Citro Monster!"
you should do it as soon as possible.  It's one step in the process of 
recruiting a character. You may get it at this point or a bit later on.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Get Rid of Citro Monster
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Citro Defense Corps.                -c6rc1-
Reward: 30,000 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 2
Description:
There's a black monster prowling around Citro Plain! We're afraid that it's
going to come into the village.  Could you get rid of it?  Signed, The
Defense Corps.
Information:
- Monster Hunting.
- An unidentified black monster.
- Go to Citro Plain.

Perhaps "Sorry to keep bugging you!" compeltion is required to begin this
quest, which is generally unlocked once your Headquarters has expanded and the
lake has appeared.

You automatically head into the Flesaria Ruins for this Quest, which triggers
a boss fight with the bird.  Considering how early you do this fight in the
game, the boss his rather hard, from 80-100 points of damage.  He also has
a good amount of HP and defense, so use your strongest attacks. 

Once you weaken it enough, the battle switches over to Marica?, where
you should just physically attack it in order to end the battle. 

Unfortunately, the game is rather cruel and requires you to walk out of the
Forest Ruins and forest. Just follow the path east all the way and then
southwest and exit to the far southwest.  Once on Citro Plain, head back north
and exit to the World Map, where you should go report this quest.

Characters:  Nomno, Yadima, Icas, Morrin, Yovel, Geschutz, Minen, Buchse,
Khemia, Hafin
Items: Any Quest Rewards.
Key Items: None

This is a section devoted to the current character recruitment spree. There
are so many characters to recruit at this point that I've put them into an
entirely separate section.  If you're looking to continue the game and don't
care about recruiting, you should skip to the next area.

---------------------------
Character: Nomno    -c6rco-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Wustum is an ally.
Description:
You've actually used this guy during the Ladzaa events, but he never officially
joined you.  To get him to join, you must be after the events with the Magedom
and after Chrodechild has joined your army.  

You'll find Nomno sleeping in the Dining Hall, which is found by taking the far
eastern exit from the Trading Post, which is north of the Plaza. The Hero will
try, to no avail, to speak with Nomno.  Now head up to the Third Floor
Residence (west exit on the third floor) and enter the Porpos room.  Speak
with the pink Porpos, Nemne for another scene.

Now head back to the Dining Hall and speak with Wustum, who is required to
recruit Nomno.  A short scene plays and Nomno joins your army.

Nomno is missable if you did not recruit Wustum by the time a desert appears.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Yadima   -c6rcy-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Expanded Headquarters.
Description:
You cannot recruit Yadima until after the events with the Magedom and after
Chrodechild has joined your army.

you probably met Yadima early in the game in his house at the Citro Plains.
If not, go speak with him there.  Afterwards, you'll find him in your Castle
if you take the western exit from the Trading Post, which is north of the
Plaza.  This leads to the Farm. Speak with Yadima and he unlocks a quest from
Moana.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Plowin' the Field
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Yadima                        
Reward: 5,000, Citro Tomato, Janam Potato
Type: Party
Dispatch: 1 Day
Rank: 1
Description:
I wanna get that field I found behind the castle plowed and ready to plant.
Reckon you can send me a few strong types to help? Signed, Yadima.
Information:
- Help Yadima with Field Work
- Needs somebody strong

You need a group of four characters that each have over 110 attack power.  It's
possible that the minimum is 125, so just send high strength characters just
in case.  The value is based on your "Total" attack power, which is "Base"+
"Equipped" Attack power.  Early in the game, characters such as Jale, Selen,
and Asad work well.  For the last character, just make sure they're levelled
proerly and give them a strong weapon. Nomno starts with over 100 Total
Attack Power, so he's another good choice.  Just 100 won't work, though, it
needs to be at least 110, so upgrade his weapon.

You'll know you have good characters if they seem confident in their speech
at the top of the screen.
---------------------------------------------------

Once you clear the quest "Plowin' the Field," go speak with Yadima on the
farm in your Headquarters and you'll recruit him. 
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Icas     -c6rci-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Complete the Quests "Find Somebody," "Find Icas," and "Bring
Icas to me."
Description:
Completing the Quest "Find Someboy" is quite easy and just requires a trip to
the Salsabil Inn, however the other quest can be quite difficult.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Find Icas
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Morrin
Reward: 500 Potch
Type: Party
Dispatch: 7 Days
Rank: 1
Description:
Please bring a man named Icas to me.  He's in Cynas, but he won't be able to
stand the Order rules long.  You can catch him when he escaped Cynas. Signed,
Morrin.
Information:
- Conduct a manhunt for Icas.
- Around Grayridge?
- use pretty women as bait?

This is the second in a set of recruitment quests, the first being "Find
Somebody."

To successfully complete this quest, you must have a group of "cute" or
"pretty" girls.  It seems you need at least 4 in the main party, since three
and one in the Support didn't work for me.  You actually will not have enough
girls to complete the quest until after the events when Chrodechild join
the party, so don't try to complete it until a bit after you actually get
access to it.

Characters like Marica, Sisuca, Zenoa and Manaril work for this quest. 
---------------------------------------------------

Watch a scene after you complete "Find Icas" and start the quest "Bring
Icas to me."  After accepting "Bring Icas to me," Icas joins. However!
We're not done yet.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Bring Icas to me
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Moana
Reward: 1,000 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 1
Description:
Morrin, was it?  That woman that asked us to find Icas.  Now she wants you to
bring Icas to her.
Information:
- Take Icas to Morrin.
- Morrin is in Salsabil Inn.

This one's pretty easy, once you've actually found Icas. Just allow Icas
to join when he asks and the scenes will play automatically. You're
forced into a battle with "Assassin."  He's rather strong because he can
kill characters in one hit, but he lacks HP and will die quickly.
---------------------------------------------------

After finishing this set of quests, you not only recruit Icas, but Morrin and
Yovel.
---------------------------
Morrin and Yovel join along with Icas once the quest "Bring Icas to Me" has
been completed.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Geschutz  -c6rcg-
Location: Mislato River
Prerequisite: Must complete the quests "Arcane Academy Tour" and "Special
Proposal."
Description:
After the events with the Magedom and Chrodechild had joined your army, you can
finally recruit this trio.  Their first quest is covered earlier in the game,
called Arcane Academy Tour.  This Quest cannot be done successfully and
failing it is how you trigger the second quest, "Special Proposal."

To complete "Arcane Academy Tour," just enter the Mislato plains from the
east side.  It's very possible that this quest becomes unavailable after
the events where Chrodechild joins your army and the lake appears.

Basically, if you don't do "Arcane Academy Tour" early on, you may be in
trouble while recruiting these characters.  I've tried to put some

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Special Proposal
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Geschutz
Reward: Rifle
Type: Leader
Rank: 1
Description:
Sorry to bother you again, but we'd like to talk again if you don't mind.
We'll be waiting at the same place as before.  Signed, Geschutz.
Information:
- Talk?
- Meet at Mislato River.

Watch the scene that occurs automatically after you start this quest.  Tell
them Yes, and the Quest will be complete and the trio joins your army.
---------------------------------------------------

Geschutz joins your army.
---------------------------
Minen and Buchse join along with Geschutz.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Khemia   -c6rck-
Location: Citro Village
Prerequisite: Must have recruited the trio of Geschutz, Minen, and Busche.
Description:

Bring either Geschutz or Minen to Citro Village and enter the Town Square
area.  The man is standing on the western side of the square and has a brown
coat on. Speak with him and he automatically joins.  He's a strange one.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Hafin    -c6rch-
Location: Mislato River
Prerequisite: Asad Recruited.
Description:
Asad must be in your army for this, so you have to be after the events when
the lake appears and after Chrodechild joins your army.  Head to the Mislato
River and the scene should automatically occur without you even entering the
river.

If you don't get it immediately, it may require you to be in Flower Season.
Asad must be in your party when you walk onto the Mislato River for the scene
to occur.

Hafin is a missable character and the chance to recruit him will be gone once
the desert appears.  You'll know when that is. 

If you recruit Hafin before Nakil, Nakil will appear later.  If you recruit
Nakil first, Hafin will appear later.  The recruitment requirements switch,
but you'll be able to do both if you know how.  I have put Hafin being
recruited first, as you can get him the earlier of the two, but you can also
get Nakil in the same way, but later on in the game.

Characters: Sotah, Nhazu, Dohga, Maybelle, Sphiel
Items: Wtr Dragn Claws (Ch'olui Mountains)
Key Items:

Tehah Village is as far west as you can go at this point. There's nothing
you actually do here, just enter the area and leave.  But there are a few
more characters to recruit.  Don't worry, it will be slowing down soon!

And get ready to spend a good amount of time in the Ch'olui Mountains.

---------------------------
Character: Sotah    -c7rcs-
Location: Tehah Village
Prerequisite: None
Description:
You can actually attempt to recruit Sotah before this point, but he'll always
decline you.  Sotah is found in the Residence in Tehah Village.  Speak with
him and he shows you information about game terms, places, and people. Ask to
see his information about 4 times total and you can ask to recruit him.

Once you've recruited Chrodechild and the lake has appeared, Sotah will
finally accept when you ask him to join you.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Nhazu    -c7rcn-
Location: Tehah Village
Prerequisite: None
Description:
You'll find Nhazu in the Tehah Village Plaza once the lake has appeared and
you've recruited Chrodechild into your army. Speak with him and then head
to the Mountains.

Enter the Ch'olui Mountains and stick west at the first intersection and go
east twice at the second and third. On the large open screen, head towards
the mountain peak, which is by going to the west. Continue west and the Hero
will make a comment about the state of the mountains. Open the chest to the
south for some WTR DRAGN CLAWS. and then you need to head all the way back
down the mountain.  The plains area is a dead end for now.

Re-enter Tehah Village and speak with Nhazu. Tell Nhazu you'll help him and
watch a scene. Now you have to walk down the mountain. Again.

Head back to your Headquarters and accept the quest "Search for Nhazu!"  If
it doesn't show up at first, make sure you're not on any other Leader Quests
or try to complete another Quest.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Search for Nhazu!
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Tehah Elder
Reward: 10,000 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 1
Description:
We haven't seen Nhazu since yesterday.  The villagers are searching the
mountains, but we can't find him.  Could you help us? Signed, Tehah Elder.
Information:
- Conduct a manhunt.
- Nhazu.
- The Ch'olui Mountains.

This is just a sequence of events. Head south down the screen and enter the
cave.  Speak with Nhazu for another scene. 
---------------------------------------------------

Watch the scenes and head back to your Headquarters and Nhazu joins you.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Dogha    -c7rcd-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Nhazu Recruited.
Description:
Oddly enough, Dogha doesn't join along with Nhazu.

Once you've finished the Nhazu recruitment Quests, Dogha will be at your
Headquarters.  You'll find him near the southern exit, which is the exit
if you go east from the First Floor Entrance Hall. You don't even have to
leave the Headquarters to find him. 
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Maybelle -c7crm-
Location: Ch'olui Mountains/Headquarters
Prerequisite: Visited Ch'olui Peak once before.
Description:
At the peak of Mount Ch'olui, the Hero comments about the mountain.
Exit the mountains completely, from the entrance, not the plains side, and 
head up the peak.  This is the area where the Hero makes a comment about the
state of the Mountain.  You'll find a woman at the top of this area during
your second visit to the area.

You exit to the Plains.  Head back to your Headquarters. Speak with Moana and
accept the Quest "Find My Fated Lover <3"

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Find My Fated Lover <3

- Conduct a manhunt.
- Fated Lover?

This quest begins after you've met Maybelle near the peak of the Ch'olui
Mountains after you've left the area once and re-entered.  To complete it,
remove any females from your group and enter the Hero's room.  His room is on
the Fourth Floor, east exit. Watch a scene.
---------------------------------------------------

Put a female member in your group, it doesn't matter who, and exit your the
Headquarters on foot. Choose the option "That's IT! I can't take it any more!"
Watch a scene and then turn around and head right back into your room.
After another scene, Maybelle joins you if you say she can.

If you're having problems getting Maybelle to appear, try just taking everyone
out of your group.  While it's possible to get the scene to trigger with some
people in the group, you might as well take everyone out. Jale may be a key
character to take out of your party, since it seems the scene won't trigger if
he's in it. 
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Sphiel   -c7crp-
Location: Ch'olui Mountains
Prerequisite: Dogha Recruited.
Description:
To begin this quest, you need Dogha in your army. Dogha requires Nhazu. 

The Quest "Get Rid of the Snow Fairy" should appear once you've recruited
Dogha.  It won't appear if you're on another Leader Quest, so finish off any
of those you have, first.

Without Dogha in your party, head to the Ch'olui Mountains.  Head to the large
open screen, which is the second screen, and take the northeastern exit up
to Dogha's Cottage.  Head up to the cottage area, and take the northeastern
path.  Near where there is a chest, which should be empty if you cleared the
area originally, speak with the woman. You're forced into a battle, which
you will lose.

Exit the Ch'olui Mountains and go back to your Headquarters.  Speak with Dogha,
who is near the southern, east from the Entrance Hall) exit.  Now head -back-
to the Ch'ouli Mountains to the same place where you originally found the
Fairy, which is west of Dogha's Cottage, and, when prompted, tell her "I'm
Full."

Ask the woman to join and you'll recruit her.

~~~                          Marsinah Plains                                ~~~

Characters: None
Items: None
Key Items: None
Enemies: Grass Laggart, Armored Gazelle, One-Eyed Spider, Vampire Bee, Sand
Serpent
Boss: Pekklar

You may have entered this area on accident while recruiting a few characters
up at the top of Ch'olui Mountain, but it was a small area.  This time we're
visiting the larger part. Like Citro Plains, this isn't a dungeon but a large
open field area.  If you've played previous Suikoden games, you'll notice this
looks very much like the World Map sections of I and II. 

Watch a scene upon entry. Just head West until you're forced into battle.

============================================
Boss: Pekklar
Strength: None
Weak: Pierce
Items: Pekklar Meat

Throughout the plains, you'll encounter the boss, Pekklar.  He's a pretty
nasty monster who has average defense and high attack.  Stick with the Hero's
Masterpiece and Roberto's Two-Way Strike as a main source of damage. 

If you're using Manaril or Sphiel you can put this "boss" to sleep with ease
in order to kill it before it has a chance to attack you.  Another good
character to bring is Minen, especially if she has the Prototype Guns from
the "Mass Production of Guns?!" Quest.  Her normal attacks will be quite
effective if you level her up.  This is quite the straightforward fight and
is more of a strong normal encounter than an actual boss.  Still, keep your
HP up. 
============================================

Watch a scene.  Keep heading west until you see a small forest in the middle
of the plains, then head northwest and you'll see a clearing in the trees to
the north.  The far western exit to the area is off limits for now, so if
you hit that area, head directly south and slightly east.  Near the river
you'll find the village.

If you're lost, you'll notice that there are three exits in the northern part
of the area.  A far northeastern, one in the center, and one in the far
northwest.  We entered from a far east exit, but not the far northeastern.
The area we're looking for is most easily found by following the "road"
from the far northeastern exit south at every intersection.

You'll find the village close to the southwestern corner of the area.

| Adept's Shoes  30,000 |
| Gauntlets       1,000 |
| Strength Sash  20,000 |
 -----------------------

Watch a scene.

You start in the Town Square.  You may want to speak with all of the
non-playable characters here, since one of them will be recruited later.  Also,
you'll find a Trading Post.  Glow Beads, if you have any left, sell amazingly
well here. If you have any Eternal Feathers, they sell very well, too, but
you'll find somewhere later on that you can sell for an even higher price.
It's not until quite a bit later, but if you're patient you might as well
wait. You can buy Rainbow Threads here for 5,500 Potch and sell them later
on in another town that we haven't visited yet for 10,000 Potch!

Exit onto the Town Map.

The General Store has the Item, and Weapon Shops. Or particular interst is the
accessories. They are a strong improvement from everything we've seen before
for your physical characters, so be sure you buy some from everyone you
plan on using for some time. I personally prefer the Adept's Shoes to the
Strength Sash, but use whichever you prefer.  Remember, the save point is in
the General Store for whenever you need to use it. 

When you're ready, enter the Inn for a scene. The Inn is extremely expensive,
so don't use it unless you must, and head out to the Town Map and watch
another scene. Enter the "Hse of the King" to continue, then head into the
Inn.

============================================
Boss: Nova, Mysterious Girl
Strength: None
Weak: Nova: Strike | Mysterious Girl: Slash
Items: None

With Roberto and the Hero, you probably have two Slash attackers, so hopefully
you have a third character who has a different weapon type. A mage is best
in the last slot. This time you really must kill them, it's not a survival
battle.

Nova's defense is quite high, but his magical defense is lower than average.
Stick with the Hero's Masterpiece and Roberto's Two-Way Strike to do over
500 damage each time, especially if Roberto is Dual Wielding.  For your third
character use whichever attacks are most powerful and your mage should use
Magical Attacks and heal your group when necessary. I like using Minen as
the third character, but whoever you like works. Jale would be a good choice,
too.

Once you kill Nova, he has around 3,000 HP, the battle ends.
============================================

Watch a scene.

Mission Accomplished!

Key Items: None

Though it doesn't matter which option you choose, "To the Castle for
reinforcements!" is the "correct" option. Head back to Headquarters and enter
the Entrance Hall to speak with Moana. Before continuing, that is, before
heading to the Great Hall, it's Recruitment time again!

Please note that while the game doesn't make a big deal about it, Neira has
joined your army at this point.  You can use her in battle if you change your
party from Erin.

---------------------------
Character: Balsam   -c7rcb-
Location: Grayridge Mines, Headquarters
Prerequisite: Must have vistsed him earlier in the game.
Description:
During any trip to Grayridge Mines after the Headquarters are named, you'll
encounter this shady character.  Watch the scene with him at this point and
once your Headquarters have upgraded, you can continue his Quest.

Once the Headquarters have upgraded, head to the rooftop, where the Hero will
comment on how large the Headquarters has become and that he remembers an
inventor in Grayridge Mines.  Head to Grayridge Mines when you have the
chance and speak with the two.  Then, bring them back to Headquarters.  They
won't join you just yet and instead stay standing in the Fourth Floor Hallway
until you bring them a Pump.

You can buy the Pump from the Naineneis Trade Center.  Examine the open
chest and the Hero will take the pump. Bring this back to Balsam and Yod
and they'll join you, along with making an elevator for your Headquarters.
You'll need to wait until after the first set of events in Cragbark to
buy the Pump, since then you'll access Naineneis again.

Head outside and wander around for 10 days. Speak with Balsam in the 4th Floor
Hall.  He will join your group.
---------------------------
Yod joins along with Balsam.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Nuzhat   -c7rcz-
Location: Salsabil, Headquarters
Prerequisite: Balsam Recruited.
Description:
Once you've recruited Balsam and have an elevator, take the elevator down to
the Cellar. The Hero makes a comment about the area being empty. Put Mubal,
he's an automatic recruit you should have gotten earlier, into your party
and head to Salsabil. Enter the Residence and speak with the woman in purple
to the east.  Watch a scene. You'll see why the trip to the Cellar was
necessary.

If you tell her yes during the cutscene, you'll be forced into a battle with
a Blaze Dragon.  It's strong to pierce but weak to Slash, so the Hero should
do a good amount of damage Dual-Wielding Swords on it.  Masterpiece should
break 700 damage on it! You can put it to sleep with Sleep Freeze, but it
shouldn't be necessary. 

The Dragon mostly uses a breath attack that does around 20 damage to everyone.
Not too bad, at this point. He only has around 3,000 HP, so you should finish
him off after a few rounds. 

After beating her Monster, she joins your army.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Rekareka -c7rct-
Location: Naineneis, Headquarters
Prerequisite: None
Description: 
Speak with Rekareka in the Naineneis trading post once you have completed the
first set of events in Cragback, where you're kicked out. The duo will leave
Naineneis. When you head back to your Headquarters, you'll notice the Leader
Quest "Make My Son a Man" is now available.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Make My Son a Man
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Rekareka
Reward: 100 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 1
Description:
if you can make the Porpos open up to humans, you can do anything. Would you
help me turn my son into a full-fledged Merchant? Signed, Rekareka.
Information:
- Get the details from Rekareka.
- Meet at 2nd Floor Residence.

Head into your tavern and take the upper western exit, by Semias, into the
2nd Floor Residence. Rekareka is up the stairs to the east.  Speak with her
and the Quest is complete.
---------------------------------------------------

Speak with Moana and another quest has opened up.
---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: I Need Laggart Pelts
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Rekareka
Reward: 30,000 Potch, Rainbow Thread, Silk Cloth, Rainbow Cloth
Type: Party
Dispatch: 5 Days
Rank: 2
Description: I'm sending Tuhululu out to buy Laggart Pelts. He needs those
bodyguards we talked about. They don't need business sense, just brawn.
Signed, Rekareka.
Information:
- Help Tuhululu get some stock in.
- Needs somebody brawny. 

Though the game says you need someone Brawny, it seems like pretty much any
character works to finish this Quest. 
---------------------------------------------------

After finishing the quests, Rekareka joins your army.
---------------------------
Tuhululu joins along with Rekareka.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Nakil    -c7rck-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Hafin Recruited.
Description: 
Once you've completed the first set of events in Cragbark where you're kicked
out, put Asad in your party. Leave HQ by walking and then enter it for a scene
with Asad and Moana. If it doesn't trigger, exit, walk for a few days, and
re-enter.  There may be a season requirement of Flower to trigger this scene,
but it's more likely that you can get it at any time by chance.  Just keep
exiting, travelling, and entering in order to trigger it.

Asad will leave your group for a few days.  Head outside and wander around
for a while, probably over two months/seasons in game time, and when you
return to Headquarters, this scene will randomly trigger.  You may have some
problems getting this scene at first, so just keep walking around for a week
or so at a time and then heading back to the Headquarters.

If you recruit Hafin before Nakil, Nakil will appear later.  If you recruit
Nakil first, Hafin will appear later.  The recruitment requirements switch,
but you'll be able to do both if you know how.  I have put Hafin being
recruited first, as you can get him the earlier of the two, but you can also
get Nakil in the same way, but later on in the game. 
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Numnu    -c7rcu-
Location: Naineneis
Prerequisite: Possibly having completed the Quest "Order Approaches Naineneis."
Description:
Once you've finished the first events at Cragbark, enter Naineneis and choose
to go to the "Entry."  Watch a scene with a pink Popos here. Once you've seen
this scene, head back to your Headquarters and get the Quest "Porpos Abducted"
from Moana.

A possible requirement for this Quest is having completed the quest "Order
Approaches Naineneis" after the completion of the Coastal Cave.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Porpos Abducted
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Woman
Reward: Trident
Type: Leader
Rank: 2
Description:
In Naineneis, I heard a Porpos was abducted by Lonomakua pirates!  I bet they
plan to sell this Porpos off.  Please do something! Signed, Passing Through.
Information:
- Go rescue the abducted Porpos?
- Go to Naineneis.

After a few scenes, you're forced into a battle with Xebec, Dromon, and
Felecca.  The Pirates are pretty fast characters and may act before you. Stick
to targeting one, probably Dromon since he's the strongest and getting rid of
them one at a time.  Xebec and Felecca hit for around 40 damage each while
Dromon can break 80. It piles up quickly.  Go after Felecca next, since she
heals herself and the otehrs for 500 HP.

This can actually be a somewhat challenging battle if you come in unprepared
and not expecting it.  You just have to strike hard and fast, or you'll take
a good amount of damage.
---------------------------------------------------

Watch a scene. Numnu joins you.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Dromon   -c7rcx-
Location: Coastal Cave, Resvisited
Prerequisite: Numnu Recruited.
Description:
Once you've finished the events with Numnu and the "Porpos Abducted" Quest,
you can recruit the three pirates.

Heads to Coastal Cave and go straight until you reach the set of geysers. 
Take the central geyser up to the upper level and continue until you reach
the intersection.  Go west and follow the path.  Open the chest for the
EXTREMELY important Godspeed Talisman. Head back to the intersection and
head straight.  Follow this path until you reach the end and open the chest
for a LAZULI SPEAR. Head all the way back and drop down the geyser.  You'll
see that you were actually on the third level!  Back on the second level,
head straight until you reach a path to the west.  Take it and follow it
all the way to the end.

You'll encounter the Pirates once again. Speak with Dromon in here and
watch a scene.

The battle is exactly the same as before.  Once again, attack Dromon first
because of his strong attack, followed by Felecca. If you're doing this battle
around level 30, expect to take damage quickly.  You'll definitely want to
bring a healer for these fights.

After the battle, you recruit the three.
---------------------------
Xebec and Felecca join along with Dromon.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Gorno    -c7rcg-
Location: Mount Svatgol
Prerequisite: Balsam Recruited. Muro recruited.
Description:
This is going to be a fun little adventure at this point.  Unless you're
up for a challenge, I'd suggest waiting a bit on this, though it is entirely
possible to do it at around level 30.

With Muro in your party, head into Grayridge Mines.  Take the elevator, which
Baslam was working on before, down the the "Lowest Level."  This leads to a
new area.

Trying to recruit Gorno at this stage of the game is quite dangerous, since
you have to wander into Mount Svatgol underlevelled.  I suggest that before
attempting to bring Muro, especially if you never use him, you bring a party
you're confident with to level them up a bit in the Mountain. The enemies hit
very hard around level 30-35, even with the best gear, so you'll definitely
want to bring a Healer. Manaril is nice, since she can also put enemies to
sleep with her magic, but she doesn't have the ability to revive.  It's your
choice. You'll also want Gadburg as your support, so you can put the
strong, mini-boss monsters to sleep and then kill them with Spark. 

If you don't want to risk this quest so early on, you can always wait until
later in the game when Mount Svatgol is actually a required place to go.

~~~                           Mount Svatgol                                 ~~~
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
                                                                        
Characters: Gorno
Items: Uncut Emerald, Emerald Ring, Moonlight Sword, Spun Silvr Armr
Key Items: None
Enemies - Grayridge Mines, Lowest Level: Fanged Silkmoth, Winged Crab
Enemies: Volcano Baboon, Svat Scorpion, Flame Ifrit, Volcano Turtle,
Magma Balloon, Anemone Worm
Area Boss/Grayridge Mines - Flower: Fanged Silkmoth
Boss: None

Getting to Mount Svatgol is the problem at this point.  You need to get there,
with Muro, in one piece.  Much easier said than done.  Before beginning the
quest to get this character, I HIGHLY suggest you prepare yourself well.
If you go in expecting to do you'll probably do better.

During your trip through the lower levels of Grayridge mines, you'll likely
encounter some rough monsters called the Fanged Silkmoth and Winged Crabs.
Winged Crabs hit hard, but aren't particularly dangerous because they use
signle target attacks.  Fanged Silkmoths, however, are capable of wiping out
a low level party.  They're particularly nasty because their area attack does
150 damage to everyone, as well as causing the sleep Status effect.  I would
suggest running when you encounter a Silkmoth for now.

When you start the lower level, head all the way east and take the east
path at the intersection.  Head down the ladder to the next screen.  Follow
the path to the dead end and open the chest for an UNCUT EMERALD. There's
also a secret passage in the side of this room.  press against the wall that
has light coming through it and open the chest in the secret room for an
EMERALD RING. Head back to the main area and go back to the previous floor.

At the lift, take the western path this time. Go south through two
intersections and follow the path to the end.  There's a MOONLIGHT SWORD at
the end of this path.  Head back north to the intersection and take the
western path and head south at the next intersection.  You should be in a
greenish-yellow area at this point.  When you encounter the next intersection,
to the east, follow the path all the way to east.  The path eventually tilts
south. At the dead end, press against the eastern wall to find a hidden
passage and a chest that contains some SPUN SILVR ARMR.  

Follow the path back north and west back to the intersection and this time
take the southern path. Follow it to the end and go down the ladder.

Now just follow this path all the way east.  The path soon turns red, which
shows that you're where you want to be.

You FINALLY reach the Mountain when you go up the ladder.

Please note that if you do go through this section early, you'll easily
gain 4-5 levels in one fight and probably hit level 40 very, very quickly.
Once you've gotten beyond 40, you should be "okay" for surviving.  Have fun
with the Flame Ifrits, though.  They're weak to Slash so Chrodechild and the
Hero dual wielding do well, but they're going to be rather rough. They hit for
around 200 damage per physical attack, and they're fast.  Your best bet it
to try and put it to sleep with a character who has Sleep Freeze and then
Wipe them out with the Spark party command from Gadburg.

Head north and east until you hit the first intersection.  If you're early in
the game, you won't be able to pass the eastern intersection, so just head
south.

With Muro in your group, Gorno will join your army.

. . .And you still have to walk back out. 

Any Uncut Rubies you get from here can be sold in Salsabil for 6,000 Potch.
---------------------------


Once you recruit Nuzhat, be sure you do Atrie's Quest "Something for You."
The quest grants your Hero a very nice Sword.

In case you have no interest in recruiting, be sure you still head to the
Coastal Cave depths (up the third geyser).  They've rearranged themselves a
bit since your first visit.  Pick up the GODSPEED TALISMAN by taking the
western path on the first intersection up here.  You'll also find some other
nice items, like a Lazuli Spear.

Now that we're finally done recruiting, it's time to continue.

Head into the Great Hall for a scene.  Choose "Ready yourselves -- we're
movin' out!"

There are two groups.  Chrodehild and your Hero are leading.  Try to balance
your groups as well as possible.  Meruvis and Roberto work well together
as dual-sword wielders and are quite powerful.  The Hero is one of the 
strongest characters on his own, so just use whoever you want to compliment
him.  Remember that Liu is with the Hero, but he doesn't have any healing
magic.  For Chrodechild's last spot, I'd suggest a balanced mage, such as
Manaril. Felecca may be a good choice for the last spot in the Hero's party
if you've used her.  She has both healing and attack magic as well as decent
physical attack power with Dual Wielding. 

It's not really a big deal who you pick, so just use who you want and watch
the scenes.

We gotta save 'em!
Information:
- Engage the Order troops in the northern Marsinah Plains. 
---------------------------------------------------

Follow the path northwest to be forced into a battle. I'm sure you remember
these foes well, it's a Cynas Conscript, Cynas Captain, and a Cynas Archer.
The enemies have gotten a good deal stronger.  Focus on the Cynas Conscript
first, since that Captain likes to defend and waste your damage.

Head north and you'll soon reach an intersection. It doesn't matter which
direction you go, since the area is actually a straight line disguised to look
like it has multiple paths.  As you head north, you'll encounter a group
of Cynas enemies, including two Conscripts and a Captain.  Watch the scene.
You can't win the battle with Chrodechild or the Hero, so allow yourself
to be killed. 

Mission Accomplished!

When you have control, exit the Residence for another scene. Head to the
Hse of the King to continue the scenes. Exit the area to continue for more
scenes. Next, head to the Town Square. Diulf, Servillah, and Lycia join your
army. You also receive the FURIOUS ROAR, which will give all of your battle
characters new Marks of the Stars.

-ch8dv-
After Chapter 8, recruitment stops happening in big blobs.  You won't get 5-6
sets of characters at a time, instead sticking with 2-3. It looks much nicer
to write this way, at least. 

Recruitable Characters - Chapter 8:

Characters: Autar, Chein
Items: 30,000 Potch, Argent Fists
Key Items: None

Exit Cragbark and watch a scene.  Head back to Headquarters and watch another
scene.  The goal is the Hero's room, which is in the 4th Floor Hall if you
take the eastern exit. The goal is the Blade's chamber, which is found in
the western exit off the Second Floor Hallway.  Watch a scene.  Exit the room
and you're given some free time.  Perfect for a character recruitment run!

---------------------------
Character: Autar   -c8rca-
Location: Cragbark
Prerequisite: None
Description:
The first chance you have to recruit Autar is right after Diulf and co. join
your army.  Though you might have done so on your first visit, speak with
Autar in the Cragbark Town Square. He's near the back of the area.

Once you've spoken with him, accept the Quest "Gather Animals!"

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Gather Animals!
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Autar
Reward: 5,000 Potch, Pekklar Meat
Type: Party
Dispatch: 15 Days
Rank: 3
Description:
The Order might attack again, so we should go gather animals for food while we
can.  But the warriors are all busy, and we kids can't go.  Could you send
somebody for me?
Information:
- Gather Animals at Marsinah Plains.
- Need somebody agile and luck.

This quest can only be activated once you've come to an alliance with the
Furious Roar.  After speaking with Autar in Cragbark this opens up.

To clear this quest, you must have characters with a Speed/Agility Stat of
at least 80 and the same with a Luck Stat (Speed and Luck at 80+).

Just level a few characters to 20+, easily done at the Ch'olui Mountains and
Marsinah Plains, and you should be fine.  A decently levelled Marica works
without adding gear, and Neira and Nemne work fine with the stats that they 
begins with. Decently levelled Minen, Liu, Zenoa, Jale and Sisuca work, too.
Nimni has high luck but low Speed.  If a character has close-but-not-quite
luck buy him a Gold Helm.  Sapphire Rings, which you can buy from your
Accessory shop, run by Gorno, are good for a cheap 20 Speed/Agility, too.

You need to fill all of the slots with 80+ Luck/Speed characters. 
---------------------------------------------------

Once the quest is completed, head out to Cragbark Town Square and speak with
Autar again. 
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Chein    -c8rch-
Location: Marsinah Plains
Prerequisite: Lycia Recruited.
Description:
With Lycia in your party, enter the Marsinah Plains from the southern,
Cragbark, side. Circle around the village and head north up the "road."
At the three-way split in the road, watch a scene. 

You encounter this boss with Lycia alone. You don't have to win, just fight
her and watch the scene after. Head back to Cragbark and enter the "Hse of the
King." Watch a scene and Chein joins you
---------------------------

After you've recruited the two characters, it's time to continue with events.
Head into the Grand Hall for the next scene.  Head into the Plaza, south from
the Entrance Hall, and then re-enter the Entrance Hall for a scene with
Moana.  If the scene doesn't trigger, try walking around on the World Map for
a day or two.

Head up to the Third Floor and enter the eastern door. Watch a scene in here.
To trigger the next scene, exit the Headquarters and walk around for a day
or two.  Enter the headquarters again and enter the Entrance Hall and speak
with Moana. Head up to the Fourth Floor Grand Hall.  When you're ready, choose
"All Right! Let's get going now!"

You have two parties, one with your Hero and Chrodechild and the second with
Diulf.  The Hero and Chrodechild are both formidable on their own, so only
give them a healer and another character of choice and you'll be fine.  You
haven't had access to Diulf for too long, so his group id probably going to
be the struggling one. Once again, it's not really a huge decision when
making the parties, just be sure that both are capable of surviving.

Mission: Pharamond Seige
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Main Character                      -c8m22-
Reward: 50,000 Potch
Description:
Pharamond troops seem vulnerable right now.  This is our chance!  The
Astrasian citizens are gonna rise up with us, so I know we can do this! And we
have to rescue Fredegund!
Information:
- Capture Pharamond
---------------------------------------------------

Diulf's party fights the first encounter here, which is against three Cynas
Conscripts.  As you know by now, they have moderate HP and defense but their
attacks are generally rather powerful.  Watch your HP if they attack the same
character each round, especially since Diulf may be rather low levelled. Diulf
has Masterpiece, like the Hero, and is quite strong against the Conscripts,
who are weak to Strike.

Controlling the Hero, head east and watch a scene, then continue east. In the
Cellar area, head down the stairs, ignore the side doors for now, and watch
another scene. 

============================================
Boss: General Guts x2
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: Moonlight Stone x2

This is another strong normal-type enemy.  They have no strengths or
weaknesses, so any normal strategy you've been using that you find effective
works.  If you have a Dual-Wielding Hero and Chrodechild, their physical
attacks alone can kill an enemy in one round.  The Guts are susceptible to
both Sleep and Paralyze, so using status attacks can finish the battle off
before you're even damaged. 
============================================

There are two eastern exits.  For now, take the far east, not the northeast,
and watch the scene.

============================================
Boss: Fredegund
Strength: None
Weak: Strike
Items: None

Well, the weakness towards Strike doesn't particularly matter, as Chrodechild
uses Swords.  Chrodechild fights alone in this duel.

Fredegund hits hard, around 60 damage per attack, which will bring
Chrodechild's HP down quickly.  You'll want to stick with Bind Bolt on the
first few rounds in order to Paralyze your foe and reduce the damage you
take.  Don't bother with Strike-Back and instead focus on normal physical
attacks once Chrodechild has Paralyzed Fredegund. If Chrodechild is dual-
wielding, she should be able to kill the boss quickly.  If she gets below 150
HP, heal.

If you're having problems surviving, equip Chrodechild with some Warrior's
Armor, from Gadburg. Give her a Moonlight Sword, from the lowest level in
Grayridge Mines, and some Adept's Shoes. Chrodechild should be Dual Wielding.
============================================

Mission Accomplished!

Exit the room to the southeast and enter the far eastern door where you just
watched the events.  Fredegund and Guntram join your army. You receive the
TWIN BLADES, which unlocks some more Marks on each character. You also
receive the swords TWIN: FLASH and TWIN: FLAME.

Exit the Royal Chamber.

Items: 50,000 Potch
Key Items: None

After the scenes the game tells you to go to the Great Hall.  But there's one
more character we can recruit at this point.  At some point, you may also
wish to head back to Pharamond and examine the shop inventory there.  They
may have some new weapons or armor for your characters, especially if you
haven't been trading to increase Gadburg's selection. 

If you do decide to go shopping in Pharamond, be sure to head to the Trading
Post.  Gold ore and Uncut Emeralds sell extremely well in Pharamond.  You
can buy Rainbow Threads in Cragbark, for 5,500 Potch and sell them in
Pharamond for 10,000! Naineneis also sells Rainbow Threads for 5,000 Potch,
so by doing one trip, holding 10 threads, you make 50,000 Potch.  You'll
need it to afford all of that armor. You can also make some profit off
of Scorpion Hides you buy from Naineneis, bought for 500 Potch, and sell them
in Pharamond for 1,000.  They stack to 99, so you're making 50,000 a trip
there, too.  If you buy 10 Rainbow Threads and 99 Scorpion Hides from the
Naineneis Trade Center, you can make 100,000 Potch per trip to Pharamond.

Because of the new trading area opened, now is a good time unlocking some
items in Gadburg's shop.  Certain items, such as as Netherlion Horn only
require one sale to unlock the weapon/armor, in this case a Beast Kng Swrd,
others take quite a bit of effort to unlock.  If you haven't already, the
Butterfly Cloak from selling Butterfly Wings is a very nice piece of armor.

Character: Ouragan  -c8rco-
Location: Naineneis, Headquarters, Cragbark
Prerequisite: Morrin and Icas Recruited.
Description:
Once you have access to Naineneis again, when you enter it you'll see a scene
with an "Assassin."  The assassin has a part in the Morrin recruitment events,
so you must have Icas and Morrin recruited in order to ally with him. Once
you've seen the scene with him, go to your Headquarters for another scene.

Once you've finished the second set of events with the Furious Roar and
Cragbark is again open to you, head to the General Store for another scene
with the mysterious assassin.

Once you've completed the first set of events in Pharamond, exit your
Headquarters and re-enter them for the final scene where Ouragan joins your
army.
---------------------------

When you feel that you're done, enter the Grand Hall. Choose "Yeah. Let's get
movin'!"

Travel to Pharamond for a scene.

- Find the intruders who broke into the castle.
- Go to the Chronicle Room. 
---------------------------------------------------

Watch the scenes. Exit the room and head east.  Head up the northeastern exit
in the larger room and watch the scene.  For this next set of events, try
not to use up all of your MP in one or two of the fights, since there are
quite a few boss battles.

============================================
Boss: Fergus
Strength: None
Weak:  Pierce
Items: None

Though Fergus is weak to pierce, there's no need to worry about changing the
Hero's weapon to a piercing weapon before the battle.  Just stick with
whatever you were using. Use Masterpiece each turn and you should kill the
boss in two-three rounds.  Don't bother with the Hero's support spells unless,
for some reason, you're very weak.
============================================

Continue along the outer path and head east onto the next screen. Before
changing areas, you may want to put Liu in the back row.

============================================
Boss: Cyclops
Strength: None
Weak:  Slash
Items: Moonlight Stone

The strategy for this battle is almost identical to the previous.  Have the
Hero use Masterpiece every round.  Since the Cyclops is weak to slash
attacks, and you're probably using dual-swords, the Hero will do extremely
large amounts of damage.  Liu should stick with Silence Sand every round and
heal if your characters get below 100 HP.  The boss can hit a low-levelled
Liu for around 70 damage, so don't get his HP drop too far if you haven't
been using him.

The boss can be problematic if you're unlucky and he Paralyzes both of your
characters with his attacks, which can not only slow down your damage but
stop you from healing. He does have a good amount of HP, perhaps around 4,000,
but with the amount of damage you do to him, he falls quickly.  Try to keep
your HP up, since right after this you fight a second battle.
============================================

============================================
Boss: Nova, Diadora, Sophia
Strength: None
Weak: Nova: Strike | Diadora: Slash | Sophia: Slash
Items: None

This is not a battle that you have to win.  It's rather strange, considering
that this time you actually do full damage to your enemies. You're stuck
with Nova in the front and you won't be able to damage Diadora, the dangerous
one without long range weapons or magic.


Diadora is quite strong, doing 70 or more damage to each party member with
her magic.  On Liu's first round, use Magic Canopy and have him focus on
healing.  Use Silence Grit whenever you have time. Diadora can also Paralyze
you, which is dangerous. You'll probably find this to be the hardest battle in
quite some time, even if you've been actively using the Hero, Chrodechild,
and Liu.

After a few rounds, the battle ends.
============================================

Mission Accomplished!

You should be in the Ravine of Infinity at this point.  Head north to watch
a scene.  Then just press against any wall to trigger the next scene.  After
that, press against another wall. Watch the scenes.

At this point, if you go back to the Red Orb, whenever you have the chance,
you may notice some of your skills are gone.  This is NOT a glitch and it
does involve the events that just happened in the storyline.

This place, like Pharamond, is another great place to trade.  Unfortunately,
we won't be able to do any extensive trading quite yet. The shops have some
new items.  Of particular interest is the Mixed Herbs for bosses, but they're
rather expensive. In the shop, the Sage's Cap is an extremely good item for
any Mage and the Topaz Rod is a nice improvement for any mage who doesn't a
Broom, from the Clean the Tablet Quest, equipped.  The swords really depend
on which characters your using.  The Hero has a powerful God-Beast Sword given
by Atrie through the Quest "Something For You," but a Moonlight Sword may be
good in his other hand if he doesn't have it already.

Enter the Vacant House from the Town Map for a scene. 

Note: As I mentioned before, you may find that you're losing abilities at
this point.  It's completely normal and they will come back once you progress
through the story.  I'd suggest not messing around with your skills too
much.  You won't lose the ones you have equipped, but when you unequip them,
you won't be able to get them back until later. 

Exit back to Town and watch a scene. Enter the Pth to Grt Tree. Head northeast
to the intersection and take the western path.  At the next intersection, head
northeast for the scene. Continue along the path and enter the building. 

When you regain control, you'll notice Luo-Tao is in your party.  You may
want to give him some gear and put him into the back row of your Formation.
Exit the house.

You fighting a battle with strong normal enemies.  The Mage Art gadgets are
strong to strike, which is unlikely to be used by anyone in your party at
the moment, and weak to Pierce.  Have the Hero stick with Masterpiece, Liu
stick with Silence Sand, and Chrodechild and Lou-Tao with normal physical
attacks. The enemies are quite strong and can posin you, so don't let your
HP drop too far.

Exit the forest and you receive the TATAU COUNCIL. Luo-Tao joins your army. 

Exit the area through the village exit and Len-Lien will join, too.

Key Items: None
Enemies: Flat Bird, Moldy Mossball, Jungle Mantis, Raflessian Bud, Noslaw Horn,
Psychedelerfly larva
Area Boss - Flower: Psychedelerfly, Rafflesian
Boss: None

This entire section is made out of nasty Area-Bosses type enemies. Of
partcular worry to your HP are the Noslaw Horns, which hits for over 100 per
attack, and the Rafflesians, who can do 50 to everyone with an added effect
of poison.  The poison will drain your HP, so kill off the Rafflesians
quickly. Another area boss appears in Flower Season that is a giant butterfly.
They constantly use a nasty area attack that hits everyone for around 70
damage and also causes confusion.  You might suffer a few casualties if
your stronger characters get confused, so kill them off quickly.  If you
want an easy journey through the forest, don't go during Flower Season!

At the start of this area, ignore the path to the south and head northwest.
At the next intersection keep going west.  You'll reach another intersection,
where you should take the southeastern path.  At the end of this small path,
open the chest for a SKY-REND BOW.  You may want to equip this onto Luo-Tao
for the time being.  The bow itself has very nice stats on it.  Head back to
the intersection and continue west.

At the split, ignore the northwestern path and take the southwestern onto the
next screen. Keep heading west and at the first real intersection head north-
west. Just keep heading west for a long time until you reach the next screen.

At the intersection, take the southwestern path.  At the next, take the north-
eastern path and open the chest to the far northeast for a MASTER'S ROBE. head
back and continue northwest.  You exit onto the World Map.

As you approach Naineneis, watch a scene. Head to Pharamond, watch the scenes,
and you'll be back at your Headquarters.

Characters: None
Items: 1,000 Potch
Key Items: None

Shockingly enough, there aren't any characters to recruit at this point. But
you can bet that after the next set of events you're going to have a ton!
Speak with Moana and get your 1,000 Potch reward and then gead up to the Grand
Hall on the fourth floor. Choose "Yeah! Let's gear up and move out!"

Your Hero and Liu are in one group, while Chrodechild and Fredegund are the
second.  Chrodechild's group is strong with just the two of them, but add
a healer and another attack of your choice for good measure. For the Hero's
group, I'd suggest a healer and a strong physical attacker.  I like a stong
Chein and Manaril for the Hero's party and for Chrodechild, Minen and Marica.
Once again, it doesn't really matter, just use who you like. Most any
character can be used and still be useful.

Mission: Defend Pharamond!
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Main Character                      -c8m24-
Reward: 30,000 Potch
Description:
The Order is targeting Pharamond again!  The Auster Folk are apparently with
them, too.  But it ain't gonna happen, now that we're back.
Information:
- Engage the Order troops north of Pharamond.
---------------------------------------------------

Ignore the path to the north and instead take the southeastern path to the
next intersection. Take the northeastern path this time to trigger a scene.
You fight with three Auster soldiers.  These enemies have a good deal of
HP, physical defense, and attack power, so keep the HP of your frontline
fighters above 200.

Chrodechild's party fights next. 

============================================
Boss: Cynas Conscript x2, Beardsley
Strength: Conscript: Slash, Pierce | Beardsley: Slash, Pierce
Weak: Conscript: Strike | Beardsley: Strike
Items: Revival Statue, Old Tree Spear

Fredegund and Chrodechild are strong enough to easily kill one enemy off a
round by using their Cooperative attack, Divine Edge.  I suggest using that
while having a ranged user, through either magic or weapons, attack Beardsley.
The Conscripts will cause trouble at the start if you don't kill them off
quickly, since they like to defend. Even defending, they shouldn't survive
a Divine Edge, though.

Beardsley himself is decently strong and can do over 120 damage to characters.
Have your healer focus on keeping characters alive, since at the beginning of
the battle, the Conscripts and Beardsley can take your HP down quickly. Keep
yourself over 200 for everyone.

Once only Beardsley is left, keep us with using Divine Edge and any normal
attacks.  Beardsley falls quickly and has little HP.
============================================

The scene switches back to the Hero. Head up the path until you reach the open
area. Stick east and head to the next screen. Continue east and at the split,
take the southeastern path.

============================================
Boss: Auster Soldierx2, Vaslof
Strength: Auster Soldier: Slash, Pierce  | Vaslof: Slash, Pierce
Weak: Auster Soldier: Strike | Vaslof: Strike
Items: Mega Medicine x2, Beetle Axe

Like in the battle with Beardsley, you must go through Vaslof's guardians
before you can reach him.  Unlike the battle with Beardsley, we don't have
an "instant win" Cooperative attack.  Kill one Auster Soldier at a time using
the Hero's Masterpiece and Liu's Silence Sand. The Auster Soldiers don't take
a lot of damage from physical attacks, but magical attacks will be very
effective. using Manaril in this battle makes it quite easy because not only
does she have very strong healing spells at this point, but her Sleep Freeze
will break 500 damage as well as landing the sleep effect.  The Sleep can
reduce the damage you take considerably.  If you don't have Manaril with you,
try to land Paralyze on one of the Auster Folk, since they can deal damage
quickly. Liu should probably be doing 700+ with his Silence Sand attacks,
so he's a strong offensive character in this battle.

The Auster Soldiers can hit for around 80 damage each while Vaslof does around
130, so you need to incapacitate, through killing, Sleeping, or Paralyzing,
the normal Auster Soldiers as soon as you can.  Keep your HP up and once
the Soldiers are gone, Vaslof falls quickly.
============================================

Mission Accomplished!

You have no obligations story-wise until you head to the Grand Hall, so now
it's time to do some more recruiting. Most of the recruiting in this section
revolves around Pharamond and Chrodechild. 

Also, at this point, you may want to walk around until it's Sprout of Bud
Season and then head to the Third Floor Hallway.  From there, take the western
door and enter the third door to the west, which is the Porpos-Kin room.
During the seasons, you'll see a scene with Namna. 

---------------------------
Character: Yula     -c8rcy-
Location: Pharamond
Prerequisite: None.
Description:
After completing the boss events at Wilds of Veile, put Chrodechild into your
group and enter Pharamond. Enter Pharamond Castle and head all the way to
the east on the first screen.  Watch a scene and then speak with her a second
time. Allow Chrodechild to go speak with Yula and a battle begins.

You only use Chrodechild during the battle, so make sure she's decently geared
before trying to win.  Use True Falcon, the 100 MP Mark, and you should kill
Yula in one hit.  If not, just attack her again and she'll fall.  If you
don't have True Falcon equipped for some strange reason, try to Paralyze her
and stick with normal physical attacks.

After the scene, Yula joins.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Mourgent -c8rcg-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Yula recruited. Gadburg Recruited.
Description:
After the boss events in the Wilds of Veile, remove Yula and Chrodechild
from your party and head to the second floor of your Headquarters.  Enter the
western door, the Blade's room, and watch a scene.  If the scene doesn't
trigger, try taking out Fredegund as well. 

Now head back to Moana and accept the new Quest, "Request from Gadburg."

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Recquest from Gadburg
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Gadburg
Reward: 50,000 Potch, Evil-Eye Sword

Could you take me to the ruins that appeared in Citro Plain, but keep it a
secret from the Princesses and the Blades? Awaiting your reply. Signed,
Gadburg.
Information:
- Go to Citro Plains.
- Take Gadburg

Without Chrodechild, Fredegund, and possibly Roberto and Meruvis, accept the
quest and watch the scenes. You head into the Mysterious Ruins inside Citro
Plains, where you fight a battle with Yula alone. You don't have to win this
fight, so just watch the scenes afterwards in which you recruit Mourgent.

If for some reason you haven't exploring this area before, you can head into
the depths and open a chest that holds a Unicorn Armband and a Mystic
Medicine. 
---------------------------------------------------
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Amaralicht -c8rcq-
Location: Pharamond
Prerequisite: None
Description:
After completing the boss events at the Wilds of Veile, head into Pharamond
Castle with Chrodechild and Fredegund in your party. Head into the Castle
Interior, the eastern screen off the main castle, and speak with the two
characters on the left side of the screen.

You automatically enter the Wilds.  Take the southeastern path at the first
intersection and the northeastern at the second. Follow the path east until
you hit the second screen.  Continue directly east onto the next screen.

A scene plays here where you fight a battle with three Cynas Conscripts.
They're the normal Conscripts, so just treat them the same way you treat
everything else, and the battle ends.
---------------------------
Quillard joins along with Amaralicht.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Bosche   -c8rcl-
Location: Noslaw Woods
Prerequisite: None
Description:
After completing the boss events in the Wilds of Veile, enter Pharamond
Castle. Head east through two screens and enter the Throne Room.  Speak with
Guntram here.  Now remove Liu, Luo-Tao, and Len-Lien from your group if you're
using them.  Put Fredegund into your party and enter the Noslaw woods from
the southwest, Naineneis, side.

Follow the path east through the first screen.  Keep heading east for a long
time, about 2/3 of the screen, and a scene plays. When you regain control,
keep heading east.  Another scene should automatically play. 

Chrodechild and Guntram may also trigger this scene.  If you bring both
Chrodechild and Fredegund, Fredegund's scene will show.

After the scenes, Lathilda and Bosche join your army.
---------------------------
Lathilda joins along with Bosche. 
--------------------------- 

That's all the characters you can recruit for now. 

When you're ready to continue, head into the Grand Hall on the Headquarters
Fourth Floor.  Walk down to the first floor Entrance Hall and watch a scene.
Rajim joins your army.

You go to speak with Zenoa at this point. You're required to ask Zenoa all of
the questions in order to continue. Exit the room to continue 

Unfortunately, after that set of events, you're allowed to recruit even more
characters.  

---------------------------
Character: Lubberkin -c8rcb-
Location: Grayridge
Prerequisite:Possibly having completed Quest "Sorry to Keep Bugging you!"
or "Something for you."
Description:
After the scenes when Rajim joins your army, speak with Moana and you'll see
a few new quests.  To recruit this character, we must finish Marica?'s quest.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: The Other Marica's World
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Marica
Reward: Crescent Axe
Type: Party
Rank: 1

And she and her allies were fighting something, right? Can I go look into
that?
Information:
- Go to the other Marica's world.
- Find out what's going on there.

It's possible that a requirement for this Quest is the completion of the
Marica? Quest "Sorry to Bother you!" This quest isn't available until after
the events with Rajim joining your army. 

You can just send whoever you wish on this quest.  It doesn't seem to matter.
---------------------------------------------------

Alternatively, you can also do "Atrie's World."  Both work as a way to
activate the scene to recruit this character.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Atrie's World
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Jale
Reward: Scale Shield
Type: Party
Dispatch: 10 Days

- Find out what's going on.

A requirement for this quest is possibly having completed Atrie's Leader
quest "Something for you."  This quest will also not show up until after you've
finished the events with Mayor Rajim joining your army.

This is one of two quests that will allow you to recruit Lubberkin. 
---------------------------------------------------

After you trigger the scene in either way, go to the Inn and put Logan into
your party. Head into the Alley, in Grayridge, and speak with the man on the
far right of the screen.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Hina     -c8crh-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Dromon, Felecca, Xebec Recruited. Possibly Maybelle required.
Description:
After the events with Rajim joining your army, speak with Dromon and
Xebec.  Dromon mentions academy and the Hero has a conversation with Xebec.
If it doesn't trigger at first, try speaking with Xebec another time. If it
still doesn't, you've probably already spoken with him and gotten the
conversation. The conversation you want mentions Lonomakua Academy.
If you're having trouble finding the pirates in your Headquarters, they're in
the Trading Post, which is just north of the Plaza.

Head over to Moana and accept your next Quest.

Maybelle may also be required to begin this Quest, since she is mentioned in
the scene.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Letter from Lonomakua
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Hina
Reward: 10,000 Potch
Type: Party
Dispatch: 40 Days

Signed, Hina Aumakua.
Information:
- Go talk to the person who wrote the letter from Lonomakua.
- Dispatch the three Dromon Pirates "Dromon" "Felecca" "Xebec."

As the game says, you must dispatch the three Pirates, Dromon, Felecca,
and Xebec to successfully complete this Quest. Just head outside and walk
around for fourty days until the pirates come back.
---------------------------------------------------

After wandering around for fourty days and reporting the Quest, watch a scene.
Tell Hina "Welcome aboard!" and she joins. 
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Savina   -c8rcv-
Location: Pharamond
Prerequisite: Icas recruited.
Description:
You can recruit Savina after the short series of events when Rajim joins
your army.

Speak with Icas in your Headquarters.  After a conversation or two, Icas
mentions that Order members sometimes had relationships with women in secret.
Then, just head out to Pharamond.  Enter the Inn/Genrl Store and walk up to
the second floor.  Up here, approach the far side of the screen and you'll
see a woman standing by the window. Speak with her and choose "Okay. We'll
help him!"  Savina will join.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Megion   -c8crg-
Location: Marsinah Plains/Mysterious Ruins
Prerequisite: None
Description:
After the short series of events where Rajim joins your army, you can
finally recruit this set of characters.

Head to the Ch'oliu Mountains and climb to the very top.  That's west at the
first intersection, east at the second two, and head northwest on the second
screen until you reach the peak.  Once you hit the peak, hug the southwestern
wall and go down the rope.

You'll be in the Marsinah Plains.  Enter the ruins just to the south for a
short scene.  Now head all the way back to your Headquarters, by walking back
across the Mountains and accept Moana's quest, "The Return of Megion."

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: The Return of Megion
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Tigre
Reward: Wtr Drgn Claws
Type: Leader
Rank: 3
Description:
Messengers from Megion have arrigves here in Cragbark.  Could you please ask
King Diul if he would return? Signed, Tigre.
Information:
- Meet with Megion's Messengers.
- Go to Cragbark.

Watch the scenes in Cragbark and then go back to the Ch'olui Mountain peak.
Exit into the plains through the peak and enter the Mysterious Ruins.

Follow the path south until you hit the intersection, where you should
continue south.  At the next intersection, head west and open the chest up
the path to the north for a LAZULI ROD. Head back east and north to the
first intersection, then take the western path. Head north at the next split
and open the chest at the end for some MYSTIC MEDICINE. Head back south and
go west at the intersection.  At the next one, head north and follow this
path west and south to trigger the scene.

Diulf, Servillah, and Lycia are required to fight against the trio.  They
don't have to win, and the next battle is with Megion and your group. Megion
has surprisingly high physical defense and also uses Rage on himself, which
raises his attack power.  He has around 4,000 HP.
---------------------------------------------------
After the scenes, the trio joins you.
---------------------------
Eusmil and Nictis join along with Megion. 
---------------------------

Now it's finally time to continue.  So many characters! After speaking with
Zenoa, head back to the third floor Chronicle Room and speak with Luo-Tao.
---------------------------------------------------
Mission: Engage the Archivists!
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Main Character                      -c8m25-
Reward: 10,000 Potch
Description:
Those archivists are gonna attack our castle, and they're bringin' the
Chronicles they stole with 'em.  They can use the Marks of the Stars even if
they ain't Starbearers.
Information:
- Engage the archivists
- The archivists have four Chronicles.
---------------------------------------------------
Head back to the Grand Hall on the fourth floor.

You now split your party into four groups.  The Hero and Liu are required in
the first group, Logan and Jale in the second, Asad, Manaril, and Chrodechild
in the third, and Neira and Nimni in the fourth.  The only two parties you'll
need to be very strong are Neira's and Logan's, so make sure you put your
most powerful attackers into those parties.

Asad's party is already well balanced if you use Manril as a healer. Just add
a second physical attacker to the group.  This group is naturally powerful.
Roberto might be a good choice, here.

Logan's party needs a healer, I like Marica, and whoever else you want. Jale
is a strong character on his own, so just fill the last slot.

Neira's party already has a healer, Neira, and a Slash attacker, so add one
more melee character and a fourth character of choice. Fredegund might be a
good character for this party if you don't have her with Asad. If your
gunners, I like Minen, are levelled, they are another excellent choice for
this group.  Of course, if you want to be extra cautious, bring a character
who can heal the entire party at once.

The Hero and Liu are formidable on their own Luo-Tao may be a good addition to
this party, since he naturally uses bows, is probably decently high levelled,
starts with a piercing weapon, and has Healing Wave.  He's nice and balanced.

You want to make sure each group is self-sufficient and capable of taking down
a boss. If necessary, you should spend some time levelling your characters up
to 30+ each while also giving them the best gear.  If you're -still- having
problems, you can always go hit level 40 by heading into Mount Svatgol from
the elevator in Grayridge Mines.

The fist battle is with Neira's group.

============================================
Boss: Wtr Dragn Conon
Strength: None
Weak: Pierce
Items: Evil-Eye Sword, Dragon Hide

The Water Dragon is very fast and powerful.  He uses a nasty water based
attack that does over 150 damage to everyone!  If your characters aren't
levelled, you will take damage very quickly.  His physical attacks only do
around 130 damage each, so as long as he sticks to those, you should be fine.

Your strategy here really depends on who your brought, but the goal is the
same no matter what.  You must do enough damage quickly before he kills your
group off.  Neira will be healing every round and I'd suggest having Nimni
help.  You're in deep trouble if the boss uses Downpour twice in a row
and you don't have yourselves healed, so keep everyone above 200 HP, even if
that means using two characters with Mega Medicine every round.

A strong assault would be Fredegund's True Falcon and Minen, paired with Ire,
since Minen's guns are piercing.  Both characters should be able to hit for
close to or more than 1,000 damage with each attack.  If you're still having
trouble, try to buy some magic defense gear for your characters and bring
a second healer who has Healing Wave to use every round. Mubal, Zarah, and
Sisuca are examples. Sisuca might be nice, she she uses Bows, piercing, and
can also use Healing Wave. 
============================================

You receive CERULEAN FLUX. Your next battle is with Jale and Logan's group.

============================================
Boss: StlGiant Fergus
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: Uncut Sapphire, Giant's Armor

As you likely expect, Fergus generally sticks to physical attacks. Have Jale
stick with Two-Way Strike and use whichever other physical skills you have
on your last character.  Logan works well as a tank-type in this battle if
he's decently levelled.  Have your healer keep everyone above 200 HP at all
times.

The only terribly dangerous thing this boss can do is deal 90-100 damage to
all of your characters.  This attack isn't too bad compared to Conon's 150.
Just have someone with Healing Wave use it after each attack and you'll
survive.  Because this boss isn't very fast, you should have no problems
healing your characters. This boss also seems to have a bit less HP than the
Water Dragon, though he does take damage a bit more slowly due to higher
defense and no weakness.

I like to use a strong Chein and Marica in this battle.
============================================

You receive NOBLE STEEL. Asad is next.

============================================
Boss: Nova, Sophia
Strength: None
Weak: Nova: Slash  | Sophia: Slash
Items: None

Manaril should be your healer here, but when you have a chance, have her
attack Nova with Sleep Freeze, which should do a decent amount of damage.
Asad will probably be best sticking with Flame Vortex.  Chrodechild is a bit
hard to use here because though she is powerful, Nova likes to defend.  You
don't want your 100 MP True Falcon defended against.  Still, if you can get it
off, you'll take a good 1/3 of Nova's HP away.  The easiest thing to do
would just to go all out from the start and wish for the best. 

Your last character should use his or her strongest attacks, but with an
onslaught from Manaril, Asad, and Chrodechild, they probably won't have a lot
left to do.  Keep your attacks focused onto Nova and completely ignore Sophia.

Once Nova falls, the battle ends.  Perhaps it ends if one of your characters
falls or after three rounds, too.
============================================
Boss: Nova, Sophia
Strength: None
Weak: Nova: Slash  | Sophia: Slash
Items: None

This time, it's the Hero's turn.  Once again, you'll want to focus primarily
on Nova until he falls. The Hero should use Masterpiece and Liu should use
Silence Sand every round.  Have your healer heal whenever anyone falls below
200 HP and your last character attack however you please.

Nova hits for about 150 damage and Sophia can match that with her critical
attack damage.  Sophia has the advantage, though, since she can attack your
back row without a problem. You may want someone with Healing Wave in your
party, since two characters will probably be taking 150 damage per round in 
this battle.  Otherwise, this is exactly the same as before.

This battle ends either when you defeat Nova or after three rounds.
============================================

You receive FIERCE REGALIA.

You regain control on the fourth floor.  You should save, and head down to
the first floor Entrance Hall.  Now would be a good time to heal into the
Inn to rest and edit your party as you choose.  When you're ready, take
the southern exit out to the Plaza. Continue west for the next scenes.

Note:  At this point, you'll have gained some of your Marks back, so if you
accidentally removed someone's important skill, you may be able to get it
back.

============================================
Boss: Demon Beast
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: Demon Horn

Once again, since the Hero and Liu are required, stick with Flame Vortex and
Silence Sand as your main forms of attack.  The Demon Beast has very high
physical defense and somewhat high magical defense, so magical attacks are
your best bet here.  Silence Sand should probably do around 800 damage with
a decently geared Liu. Oddly enough, you'll find that Hero does better with
his magic attacks than With Masterpiece.   Masterpiece will probably do around
600 damage while his fire attacks, namely Flame Vortex, will hit for 800-900.

This boss does around 120 with his normal physical attacks, but can hit 200
or so wth a magical attack.  Just keep everyone around 320 HP with your
devoted healer/mage and you shouldn't have too many problems surviving,
considering this boss is rather slow. The boss only has around 4,000 or so HP,
so if you can do 800 with two characters per round, you'll kill him quickly.
============================================

Mission Accomplished!

-HOWEVER-
At this point there is a short window to recruit Namna.  Don't worry, if you
miss this short window now, you can always recruit him later on.

---------------------------
Character: Namna    -c8cn1-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Must see his visits in Sprout and Bud Seasons.
Description:
There are two chances to recruit Namna.

Namna is a bit touchy.  First, you must wander around until Sprout season
and then enter the Porpos-Kin room. The room is found on the third floor
hallway of the Headquarters by taking the western exit. You'll find him
speaking with Neira, who is an automatic recruit.  After the first scene with
him, you must actually speak with him.  He's the green Porpos in the room,
the one standing next to Neira. You'll find him in Bud Season, this time. 

Once you've finished the events where you recover the three Chronicles, 
you can trigger the next scene with Namna.  Once again, wait until Bud
Season and then enter Neira's room. Speak with him and ask him to join. He may
decline for now.  It is possible to recruit him at this point, but it won't
always work if you didn't speak with him early.  

What you can try to do is head into the Grand Hall and watch the first scene
there.

If you don't get Namna after the first events, there is a second chance to
get him later on that is a bit easier and less touchy.  I'd suggest waiting
until then, personally. Not all is lost.
---------------------------


Enter the Plaza for the next scene. Then head up to the Grand Hall for another
scene.

Mission Accepted!

HUGE NOTE: If you're trying to rectuit Hafin and Nakil, and possibly Wustum
too, you're too late, even if you're right before accepting the Mission.

Don't head too much further if you haven't recruited all of your characters!
While it's true that you're too late to recruit Nakil and Hafin at this point,
this is also the time where Wustum and Geschutz and company.

Client: Liu                                 -c9m26-
Reward: 10,000 Potch
Description:
The Magedom is about to make an all-out attack, but the Order's retreating! Did
they predict another earthquake or something?! Better warn the Magedom fast!
Information:
- Warn the Magedom about the danger.
- Go to El-Qaral.
- Have the Magedom people go, too.
---------------------------------------------------

Your Hero's party is pretty much forced on him. Asad and Mubal are required,
so give yourself a strong short range attacker to fill in the last slot.
Chrodechild works well, but use anyone you like.

Also, if you've not used Mubal much, you may want to level him a bit, or at
least get him some decent gear.  You can level him up quickly in the Cellar
if you rectuired Nuzhat. 

Heal to El-Qaral, but as you walk through Flesaria Forest - South you'll
switch areas.

Characters: None 
Items: Chakram
Key Items: None
Enemies: Balloon Lizard, Sand Spider, Club Cactus, Janam Scorpion, Fairy Mouse,
One-Eyed Cobra
Area Boss - Bud: Dust Fish
Boss: None

The desert is a large, field-like area like the two Plains in the game.  As
you may have expected, there aren't a whole lot of landmarks, but you'll
notice mountains to the north.  It's probably best to hug those as you head
to the east.

From the entrance, follow the wall all the way south, not going east at all.
At the very bottom, enter the Oasis and you'll obtain a Chakram. Once you get
this, head back north to the entrance. 

Keep heading east until you notice the short set of mountains in the north
tilts south and opens into another section of the desert. If you head north
towards the world map exit, Asad will mention that you need to keep going to
El-Qaral.

From where the mountain starts its decline, the exit that Asad won't let you
take is just to the northeast, head directly south. To your west should be 
red dot, which is what you're looking for.  This should be just to the
southwest of the lone mountain range in the center of the desert. 

Watch the scenes when you enter the town. 

When you regain control, head directly south.  When you hit the mountaian
range to the far far south, there should be a yellow dot to the east. Exit the
desert and watch a scene. 

Note: Any Uncut Topaz you may have gotten as drops in this area can be sold
for 6,000 Potch, the high, in Tehah Village.  If you sell a few, you can buy
Sapphire Rods from Gadburg at Headquarters. Also, if you happen to have any
Moonlight Stones from some bosses previously, you can sell those in the
Woodland village.  After selling a few, you can buy a Moon Necklace from
Gorno, which is a great accessory for any mage.

Salsabil has changed.  Head into the Royal Palace, since the Viceroy's Mansion
isn't an option anymore. Head west for another scene. Exit the Palace and
enter the Inn. Shams joins your army and you receive the ANCIENT COVENANT.

Mission Accomplished!

Exit Salsabil and head back to your Headquarters. Watch the scenes.

============================================
Boss: Demon Beast
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: None
The low levelled Taj is required for this battle.  He will replace your fourth
character.

The bosses attacks are the same as before.  He has the magical attack that
does around 200 damage and his physical attacks that hit for ~130 or so.  It's
not too bad if Mubal focuses on healing every round while the Hero and Asad
do around 1,800 per round. 

This is a three round battle where the goal is just to survive.  You can
attempt to damage him, of course, Flame Vortex works well for around 900
damage, but otherwise, just wait it out.
============================================

This time, the journey back to Headquarters won't be hindered.

Head to Naineneis, where a scene plays. Enter the Main Street to continue.
---------------------------------------------------

After finishing up the quest in Naineneis, head to Cragbark.  Enter the Town
Square for the last scene. 

You have to fight two Pekklars, but you have the advantage that all of your
characters are given Rage status, which increases your attack.  I'd suggest
focusing on one of them, as they do have around 1,800 HP, but they're rather
normal enemies. Ramin joins you.
---------------------------

Now that we've recruited a few characters, there are still some quests to do
that will let us recruit characters later on.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Get Rid of the Mislato Monster
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Salsabil Housewife                  -ch9ml-
Reward: 40,000 Potch, Darkness Cape
Type: Leader
Rank: 3
Description:
I saw a scary, pitch-black monster on the bank of Mislato River! I'm still
shaking! Please, you've got to do something! Signed, Salsabil Housewife
Information:
- Monster Hunting
- An unidentified black monster
- Go to Mislato River

This is the second in a set of three quests required for recruiting a
character.  This one happens after you've completed the Get Rid of Citro
Monster quest, as well as having completed the events where you receive the
Key Item "Ancient Covenant."

This mini-boss has surprisingly high defense, but it easily unbalanced. You
should be able to kill it before it even damages you if you land Paralyze,
Sleep, or Unbalance.  At most it should last three rounds.
---------------------------------------------------

Also, after you finish the quest, as you notice, like with Coastal Cave, there
are new items now that the Mislato River has changed.  Open the chest to the
south for some Fish Guts. You'll also encounter some new enemies, such as an
Elephant Jelly, which gives a good deal of experience to any low level
characters.

Also, once you've recruited Tsaubern, you should do another prerequisite quest
for recruiting some characters later on.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: One More Mission
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Tsaubern                            -ch9om-
Reward: 100 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 4
Description:
I actually have another mission.  But I hate to sneak around people's backs. I
want to carry it out openly, with you present.  Won't you accompany me?
Information:
- Talk to a certain person
- Accompany Tsaubern

Once you've recruited Tsaubern and Yula, this quest shows up.  Head up to the
second floor hall and enter the western door to the Blade's room.  Speak with
Yula in here.  This is actually quite an interesting scene that gives some
more information about the Tierkreis world.
---------------------------------------------------

Before we continue, I'm going to lead you on a short side quest that will
help recruit a set of characters later on.

Bicorn
Area Boss - Bud: Dust Fish
Boss: None

Enter the Janam desert from the Salsabil side. We're going to do a short
side-quest that will help us recruit a character later, but then we'll move
onto the required portion.

Make sure you've enter the desert the Salsabil side, and then head east.  
You'll be heading slightly north if you follow the river east.  You'll soon
come to a ruin. This is the area for helping us recruit a character later on.

Hotupa works well on the nasty, high HP and attack, Leosaurus in this small
dungeon.  Just have him use Toppling Blow to unbalance them and then use
Spark with Gadburg as support.  This will reduce the amount of damage you take
from these nasty monsters.

After the initial cutscene, head south from the entrance and then go west at
the intersection.  Head west at the second intersection and at the 
very end of this path, you'll trigger a scene. While Keflen agrees to stay
with you, he hasn't joined your army yet.  When you enter the Headquarters
on will, not automatically brought there, you'll see another scene with him.
Unfortunately, that's all we can do for now. 

There are still some items to get in the area.  Head back to the previous
intersection and go directly south.  In the chest down here you'll find an
IRIS BLADE, which is an excellent weapon.  Head all the way back north to the
first intersection.  Take the eastern path at the next two intersections and at
the end, open the chest for MYSTIC MEDICINE.  Head back south to the 
intersection and go north back to the first intersection. Exit the ruins to
the north. 

Once you're done in the Mysterious Ruins, head back west to the Salsabil 
entrance.  From the Salsabil entrance, head directly north and enter the red
dotted area.  This triggers a scene.

Boss: General Guts, Diadora

This area is treated like a town.  There's nothing in the Plaza Ruins or the
Imp Palace Ruins, so enter the Arcn Acadmy Rns.  Head east in here and enter
the eastern door. You should now be in an area that's at least minimally
familiar to you.  Continue east and walk down the many sets of stairs.  At
the bottom, enter the western door and watch a scene. 

============================================
Boss: General Guts x2, Diadora
Strength: None
Weak: Diadora: Slash
Items: Moonlight Stone x2, Mystic Medicine

You've encountered the General Guts-type enemies before in Pharamond. This
time, they have Diadora as backup, and she's strong.  Focus on one of the
Guts at a time with every character other than your healer.  The beginning
of the battle is the hardest part, so you want to get the first enemy down
quickly.

Diadora likes to use magic that hits everyone for around 100 damage, so have
Luo-Tao use Healing Wave every round and act as a healer.  The main problem
with this battle is that the Guts and Diadora are both very fast and will act
before your characters, including Luo-Tao's Healing Wave.  Fortunately, the
Guts should only be hitting for 40 or so damage, but if you don't use Healing
Wave every round, you're going to be taking damage very quickly. Diadora also
has a single target attack that hits for around 175 damage.  Arguably, this
is less dangerous than her multi-target attack because it's unlikely the
Guts can do enough damage quickly enough to kill a character that is hit by
it.

Any gear that raises your magical defense will help considerably here, since
the main threat, Diadora, is purely a mage. Diadora only has around 2,500 to
3,000 HP, so she shouldn't take long to kill.  With the Hero using a dual-
wielded Masterpiece, he should be breaking 900 damage with every attack.

Characters: Diadora, Misrach, Nofret
Items: 10,000 Potch
Key Items: Endless Travels

Next we need to speak with Liu.  Remember to get your reward from Moana, and
head to the Fourth Floor Grand Hall.  Talk to Liu and then head back to
the second floor physician's office, which is the eastern door.  Head back
down to the first floor and enter the Plaza.  Go to the Gateway screen.

You receive ENDLESS TRAVELS.  Also, your new character is one of the best
mages in the game. She not only has Sleep Frost, which is excellent and will
allow her to replace Manaril, but strong healing and offensive spells. 

I suggest telling the game to wait a bit, since there are still a few
characters to recruit. 

---------------------------
Character: Misrach  -c9crh-
Location: Salsabil
Prerequisite: None 
Description:
Once you've received Endless Travels, you can recruit Misrach.  He's very
easy to recruit, just head to Salsabil and enter the Royal Palace.  Speak
with the man on the right side of the screen and choose "Well, sure -- but
before that. . ." and after the scene, Misrach will join you.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Nofret   -c9crf-
Location: Buried Mage City
Prerequisite: None 
Description:
After receiving the key item Endless Travels, making sure Shams or Manaril are
not in your party, and go to the Buried Mage City.  Enter the Arcn Acadmy Rns
and walk all the way down five or so levels.  Earlier in the game, all of the
side rooms were closed off, but this room, to the right, will not be open.
It's one of the side rooms on their stairs screens. Watch a scene in here.

Go back to your Headquarters and this time bring Shams and Manaril with you
to the same location. Head back to your Headquarters, where a new quest
awaits you.
---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Help Them Dig
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Nofret
Reward: 10,000 Potch, Noble's Shoes, Magic Armband
Type: Party
Dispatch: 25 Days
Rank: 4
Description:
The Mage City was huge!  Me and my men cant handle it all alone.  Can you send
me some more hands?  People with some oomph, and no kids!!! Signed, Nofret.
Information:
- Help them dig up the Mage City
- Needs somebody strong

You need characters with high Total Attack Power (Base Attack+Weapon Attack)
for this quest. Two whole teams of them! Anything above 125 should work for
all of your characters.  If you don't have 8 characters with 125 attack,
give them the best weapons and accessories you can.  Some accessories add
30 Strength, which should easily push some characters over the tier.  If
you still don't for some strange reason, send them into a battle or two in the
Desert, which will bring their level up very quickly.

Note that everyone, no matter their strength, will be enthusiastic about this
quest, but that doesn't mean they will all be able to complete it properly.
---------------------------------------------------
After you finish the quest, head back to the Academy again with Shams and
Manaril and you'll recruit Nofret.
---------------------------

That's all for now.  When you're ready, head over to the gateway screen and
speak with Diadora.  Tell her that you'll go. Be sure you're prepared, since
you can't exit until you're done with the events.

Reward: 10,000 Potch

Chronicle?
Information:
- Get the 10th Chronicle back
- Storm the Tower of the Way via Diadora's Gateway
---------------------------------------------------

You start out on the fourth floor.  This area is absolutely huge, but,
fortunately, there are no encounters.

Head south from the entrance and at the intersection go east.  Walk all the
way around the screen, east and north, until you reach another intersection,
Head north up and watch the scene.

Mission Accomplished!

Characters: Nova
Items: 10,000 Potch
Key Items: None

Once you regain control, exit the Physician's Office. Surprisingly, there are
no more characters to recruit yet, so once you've done everything you want to,
head up to the Fourth Floor Grand Hall and watch the scene. Remember to get
your reward from Moana!  Exit the Grand Hall and head down to the First Floor
Entrance Hall.  Head into the Plaza and enter the Gateway screen for the next
scene.

Head back to the Fourth Flood Grand Hall and speak with Liu.  If he's not
there, you need to wander around outside for a few days or go explore the Fort
Arc area.

Tell him "Let's go to Fort Arc!"  when you're ready.

You have three groups, the Hero and Nova, Asad and Logan, and Diulf, Nimni,
and Chrodechild.  Unfortunately, none of these are terribly balanced groups so
you'll have to add your own characters.

Diulf's group needs a healer, I'd send Manaril, since she's a decent healer as
well as magical attacker.

Asad's group needs a strong short range attacker and a healer.  Marica and
Chein are who I chose, but if your Logan is fully levelled, you can use him as
a tank-type and have three backlines, with two mages and a ranged attacker.
It's really your choice. 

Ths Hero's party needs a mage and a third character of choice.  Nova is a
short-ranged physical attacker, so you may want to add someone with a
different type of damage, the long range gunsmans, such as Minen, work well,
or a mage.  I'd use Diadora here, since she's a nice, balanced mage. I'd also
give Nova some new gear, since the gear he starts off with is pretty terrible.
Nova can't dual-wield, so it's best to set him up as a strong defensive
character or a "tank." You may want to bring a character with Strike, such as
fists, but it's not necessary.

When you're ready, head out.

Mission: Fort Arc Siege
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Main Character                      -c1029-
Reward: 30,000 Potch
Description:
Even if they're gonna erase our castle with the 10th Chronicle, we still got
time.  So we're gonna attack Cynas and crush Valfred!  Gotta get through Fort
Arc first, though.
Information:
- Break through Fort Arc
---------------------------------------------------

A battle automatically begins with a Cynas Captain and two Cynas Mages and the
Hero's party. As you probably know by now, the Cynas Captains can be very
annoying with their defending which doubles the amount of time it takes to kill
them. If you brought a long range attacker, such as as Mage and a gun or
bowman, they should be able to kill both of the Mages by the time that Nova
and the Hero kill the Captain.

Enter the Fort and just head straight.  Nova won't let you go any other way
for now. Watch the scene and you'reforced into a battle with Diulf's group.
Like before, it's a battle with a Cynas Captain and two Cynas Mages. Long
range attackers with piercing and mages will get rid of the mages quickly,
while Diulf and Chrodechild can take down the captain.

Keep heading north with the Hero until you pass the second intersection. Asad's
and Logan's group fight this time.  It's the same battle as the last two times.
Asad's Spear Downpour will do a good amount of damage to each enemy, so use
to weaken every foe and kill them off with your normal attacks. 

Keep heading north with the Hero to watch a scene with our old friend.

============================================
Boss: Vaslof, Resno
Strength: Vaslof: Slash, Pierce  | Resno: Slash, Pierce
Weak: Strike
Items: Order Armor, Crescent Axe

You've fought them before, so you should know what to expect.  High physical
damage and defense are what these two excel at, so hopefully, for a faster
battle, you have a magical attacker.  Diadora works well because she acts as
a strong attacker as well as having excellent healing spells.  Of course, you
can use the Main Character as a healer now that he has learned Healing Tide
and leave Diadora for damage.  The Hero and Nova probably won't be able to
do much damage with physical attacks and skills unless the Hero has some fists
equipped.

I suggest that along with a strong magical assault you use the Hero's Flame
Vortex over physical attacks.  Start damaging Resno first, since she doesn't
defend as often as Vaslof does.  She also only has around 2,500-3,000 HP, so
with strong magical attacks she should fall quickly.

Vaslof is about twice as strong as Resno, with his attacks doing 150 compared
to Resno's 70-80. Not only that, but he has a bad tendency to defend, which
lowers the total amount of damage you do to him.  Though he's stronger, I'd
leave him until after you've killed off Resno.  150 on its own can't kill
your characters, but it's Resno's additional damage that can. Vaslof,
fortunately, takes more damage from magical attacks than Resno. Vaslof, too,
only has around 2,700-3,000 HP, so with strong Strike or magical attacks, he
will fall.
============================================

Continue north onto the next screen.  The next battle with four Dust Minions
is a normal encounter, but not only are the enemies very strong, around 80
damage per attack, but they don't take damage quickly. I'd suggest having
someone who can sleep enemies to reduce the damage you take every round.

After a few rounds, watch a scene.

Mission Accomplished!

There's one more character we can recruit.  Also, if you've not recruited Anya
at this point, you'll find her in the Grayridge Alley instead of the mines. 

---------------------------
Character: Gilliam  -10crg-
Location: Graryridge
Prerequisite: None
Description:
After the events with the Dust Minions in Fort Arc, head to Grayridge with
Logan in your party. Enter "Outside Ch Hall" and watch a scene.   Head east
into the office and speak with Gilliam in there.  Ask Gilliam to join and he
won't just yet.  Head back to your Headquarters. Moana now has a new quest
available, "Defend Grayridge."

Be warned, you absolutely must be successful in this Quest or you won't 
recruit him at this point.  This Quest doesn't reappear again like other
quests. You will receive a different quest later in the game if you fail this
to help recruit Gilliam, but you'll only receive "Defend Grayridge!" once.
Be sure you save before doing the quest and make sure you succeed at it before
saving again.
---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Defend Grayridge
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Gilliam
Reward: 50,000 Potch
Type: Party
Dispatch: 10 Days
Rank: 4
Description:
The sand creatures from Fort Arc have been approaching Grayridge.  If they
attack, I'm afraid I'm not sure we have the manpower to fend them off.
Request for assistance.
Information:
- Defend Grayridge
- Stop the Sand creatures

You need three full parties of high-strength characters.  This one's a bit
deceiving since some characters will be enthusiastic even if they don't have
the required amount of strength.  Each and every character needs 110 total
attack power, equipment power+base strength, so give them all strong weapons
and accessories.
---------------------------------------------------

After successfully completing the quest, head back to Grayridge Chapter hall.
This time you don't need Logan, just speak with Gilliam and he'll join.

Please note that if you do fail Defend Grayridge and are doing the quest
later on, the second quest has a different, and more difficult, set of
requirements, so 110 Total Attack Power won't work.
---------------------------

After recruiting Gilliam, head to the Second Floor Residence, which is right
above the Tavern.  Watch the scene in here. Head back up to the Fourth Floor
Grand Hall. Vaslof and Resno finally join you. Vaslof is a required member
for the next events, so remember to head to the red orb and give him some
Marks!

Exit the Grand Hall for a scene.

Reward: 30,000 Potch, Hell Fists
Description:
We Auster Folk seem to be able to handle those creatures.  I want to help you,

Lugenik.
Information:

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

The problem we encounter here is actually getting to the Mountain. The
Grayridge Mines entrance doesn't work, so we need to take the long way to
Svatgol.

Enter the Janam Desert from the Mislato River side.  Hug the north wall and
head east.  The exit to the desert is just to the northeast of where the
mountains descend south. Once you go through the exit, you'll be back on the
World Map, where the Mountain has opened up for you.

After the scene, follow the path north and west until you hit the first
intersection. Head north.

Note:  If you have not recruited Gorno at this point, just head west at the 
very first intersection and then south.  This will bring you right up to Gorno.
If Vaslof doesn't trigger the scene with him, bring Muro.

Another Note: To easily kill the high HP Flame Ifrits in this area, put them
to sleep with a mage or unbalance them, then just use Gadburg's Spark command.
This also works on Blaze Dragons. Just have everyone defend on the first
round except your sleeper, and then hope Sleep lands. 

Follow the long path north as it tilts east. You'll eventually encounter a
second intersection. Head east here and follow the path south.  Open the chest
at the end for a SILVER ORE. Head back north to the intersection and take the
northern path this time.  Soon, you'll reach another intersection. Ignore the
northern path and take the western path to the next screen.

Follow this screen north as it snakes around.  It's qute a long walk, so after
some time and enter the next screen.  Follow the path west to the first split,
where you should head east.  Follow this path all the way east and then south
onto the previous screen.  Open the chest here for a DEMON HAMMER. Head back
to the intersection and take the northern path this time. 

As you head north , right before the path tilts west, press against the north-
eastern wall.  I mean right at the northeastern corner where the path tilts.
you should be able to cross right through the wall and at the end you'll find
a chest containing MYSTIC MEDICINE.  Go back to the secret wall and continue
west.  Ignore the intersection to the north and continue west along the path.
You'll probably note, though it doesn't matter, there's a hidden passage in
the northeastern corner when the screen tilts west here, too, but this time
it doesn't lead to anything good, so just ignore it. head west onto the next
screen.

Keep heading west and at the intersection head southeast.  You'll soon reach
another screen.  While this appears to be a dead end, press against the
northastern wall and follow the hidden path south.  There's a chest in a
hidden room at the end of the ptah that has a STERLING ARMOR. Head back north
up the hidden passage and go back to the previous screen. 

Head back to the intersection and take the western path. Follow it to the next
intersection, where you should head northwest onto the next screen.

Head west and south at the intersection once you're inside again.  Follow this
path to the next screen and open the chest at the end of the path for some
ROASTED CORN.  Head back west to the previous screen and right as the path
starts tilting north, press against the southwestern wall to find another
hidden passage.  This one is a shortcut about halfway across the screen to
save you a few encounters.

Head south at the intersection onto the next screen.  Down here, follow
the intersection west and you'll see two northern paths.  Take the far
eastern northern path and follow this path quite some time until you reach a
second intersection.  Take the southern path and open the chest for a DIAMOND.
head back to the intersection and go north.  While it appears to be a dead end,
there's another hidden passage here.  Follow this long passage to the end,
which is mostly south and east, and you'll find a chest containing a GIANT'S
ARMOR.

Head back north and to the intersection and head back east until you hit the
previous intersection. There's nothing else on this screen, head head back
east and then north to the previous screen.

At the intersection, go north and continue all the way north at the next
intersection.  Press against the western wall at the dead end to find another
hidden path.  This one's a bit difficult to make your way down, but at the end
you'll reach that chest, which contains a DRAGON HELM.  head back out of the
hidden passage and back south to the intersection.  Head west and take the
first path north.  Take the yellow-dotted exit out of the Mountain.

Note:  It's highly likely I missed a few items going through the mountain,
since the place is littered with hidden passages.  I'll go through it again
later, but as I write this, the area becomes increasingly frustrating with the
tedious random encounters.  I've attempted to do my best finding most of the
items for you, though.

Watch the scene upon entry. the Shops in this area are all in the Inn/Tavern.
of particular note are Eternal Feather prices, which is up to 10,000 Potch.
But some from the Woodland Village and sell them here for around 7,000 Potch
profit each. Silver Ores also sell well here, for the game-high of 1,000
Potch. 

Gear of particular interest in this area is the Silver Dragon armor and the
Giant God Fist Club.  The Giant Fist God has not only high attack power, but
each one you equip adds 100 HP!  Your characters, even low HP ones, will
easily survive attacks with these.  While they aren't the best weapons in the
game, they make surviving bosses with powerful attacks much easier.   You may
not want to dual-wield them, but putting one of them onto a lower HP character
is a good idea.

When you're done shopping, head to the Chief's Room. After the scene, exit
the room and watch another scene.  Enter the Ancestral Altar.

============================================
Boss: Oracle Soldier Male, Oracle Soldier Female
Strength: Slash, Pierce
Weak: Strike
Items: Mystic Medicine, Revival Statue

These two should be approaced in much the same way you fought Vaslof and Resno.
As you may expect, they're strong physically and have high defense, but they
are weaker towards magic.

Oracle Soldier - Female, "A," is the faster of the two, but they're both
about the same strength.  Their attacks should each do around 120 damage,
so make sure everyone has over 240 HP at all times.  Definitely target the
female first, since she is probably the more dangerous of the two and can break
150 damage.

Though "A" is stronger, the Male, "B" heals her for 300 damage once she hits
around 1/3 health, she has around 3,000 HP, so you'll need to kill her fast. 
300 shouldn't be a huge amount if you're sticking with strong magical attacks,
but it might make her last a round or two extra. 

The Hero does best with Flame Vortex, Vaslof does extremely well if you have
him set with the Marks Equilibrium and Earthspasm.  He'll do 700 damage
with each attack while the Hero does around 450-500. if the Hero doesn't have
Fists on, you may do a bit better if you have your Hero with Healing Wave act
as a healer.  That way your mage can focus on damage. The male, too, has
around 3,000 HP.
============================================

After the first set of scenes, Ordovic joins you.  Head back west for another
scene. Enter the Chief's Room. Kashgar joins you, too.

Mission Accomplished!

After you finish the scenes, exit the area and head back to your Headquarters.

Characters: Indrik, Diiwica
Items: 30,000 Potch, Hell Fists
Key Items: None

Watch the scenes. Enter the Plaza and take the south exit onto the Gateway
screen for a scene with Hotupa.  Enter the Fourth Floor Grand Hall for the
next scene.  As you exit the Grand Hall, another scene plays. Indrik and 
Diiwica join you.

When you're ready to continue, speak with Liu in the Grand Hall and tell him
"Let's do it!" Remember to set any new character's marks before you use them.

There are three groups.  The Hero's group has, by default, the two Oracles but
you can remove them and add any character. I like Marica in this
group, but the default group works well.  Indrik has a nice set of
skills that allow him to heal, Healing Wave, and attack, Sand Crumbler.
If anyone, I'd replace Diiwica since she lacks Sand Crumbler and add another
mage with water based attacks.  

Neira's group only has she an Nimni.  Neira is a decent healer but she lacks
any area healing spells. She'll probably act better as an offensive mage.
Nimni is a medium range attacker, so to this group you'll want a short range
attacker and either a healer or another attacker of your choice. Neira and
Nimni are a rather balanced duo on their own, so just add whoever you think
will improve their chances of survival. Marica works well to help compliment
Neira's magic and Ordovic works nicely as another attacker.

Valof and Resno are the third group and both are purely physical attackers.
Resno has Healing Flow, but she doesn't have a lot of MP to use it, so it's
your decision to bring a healer with this group or not.  Still, a mage and
a long ranged attacker work well in this group. Admittedly, I just like to
bring a group of physical attackers and someone with the ability to heal.
This group has the easiest time. 

When choosing characters, pick ones that have Spear Downpour and Sand Crumbler.
Both of these abilities will effectively damage the Sand Monsters.

Characters: None
Items: 10,000 Potch, 3,000 Potch
Key Items: None
Enemies: Dust Minion
Boss: Dust Sophia

---------------------------------------------------
Mission: Rescue Sophia!
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Main Character                      -c1031-
Reward: 40,000 Potch
Description:
With the help of the Auster Folk and the Porpos, we're gonna wipe out the sand
creatures and break through Fort Arc!  And we're gonna rescue Sophia, too.
We promised Nova!
Information:
- Break through Fort Arc
- Rescue Sophia
---------------------------------------------------

Head North into the Fort.  Each of the Sand Monsters has around 1,500 HP and
the only effective ways to damage them are with Sand Crumbler and water-based
magic. Please note that Ice Magic, like Manaril and Sphiel use, is not
considered Water magic and will be resisted.

The first group that fights is Neira's. Neira does well with Spear Downpour
and Nimni should stick with Sand Crumbler. The enemy magical attacks will
silence your characters and do around 130 damage, so watch yourself.  Nimni
should use Sand Crumbler every round while Neira uses Spear Downpour.  Your
other characters should help in any way they can.

After Neira's group vaslof's group goes. Vaslof and Renso will absolutely
destroy the Sand creatures with Earthspasm and Sand Crumbler, respectively.
This battle shouldn't last more than two rounds.

Once you control the Hero, we'll do some exploring before we continue. Head to
the south and take the eastern exit out of the main hallway.  Follow this path,
ignoring the north fork, and take the southern path at the intersection.
There's a chest down here that contains 10,000 POTCH.

Once you've picked up the Potch, head back west to the main hallway.  From
there, head to the southwest of the screen and enter the western door.  Follow
this path north at the intersection and you'll hit the second floor.  Follow 
two screens east and after you've crossed the upper bridge you'll reach a
screen with an intersection.  Ignore the northern path and continue east.
Open the chest for 3,000 POTCH.  Head back downstairs to the main hallway. 

That's all there is for now, so head north through the Main Street until you
trigger a scene. 

============================================
Boss: Dust Sophia
Strength: None
Weak: Strike
Items: Uncut Topaz

As with the other Sand Minions, Sophia takes a good deal extra damage from
Water Magical attacks - they can break 600 damage, so bring characters who
have strong water based magic, such as Spear Downpour.  The default group,
with the two Oracles, works surprisingly well for this battle. Diiwica can do
800 or so with a normal attack and Indrik can break 1,200 with Sand
Crumbler.  Just use the Hero to heal every round.

If you didn't bring the default group, I really hope you brought characters
with Spear Downpour and Sand Crumbler, or at least brought Ordovic.
Otherwise, this battle is going to take a long, long, time.

Sophia hits hard and is considered a long range attacker, so she can hit
your back row characters for full damage, which can almost hit 200 on weaker
defense characters.  Keep everyone's HP way up.  She also has magical attacks
that can hit 300 damage.  Because your choices for this battle are limited,
have your weaker character, extremely likely to be Nova, focus on healing
while everyone else attacks with their most effective skills.

Sophia has 3,000-3,500 HP.
============================================

Watch the scenes.  Mission Accomplished!

Characters: Darrow, Yomi, Chihaya, Namna, Sophia, Tigre, Mun-Tsang, Keflen,
Belemuel
Items: 40,000 Potch, Demon Spear
Key Items: Boundless Amber, Furious Roar
Boss: [Spoiler Boss]

You start in your Headquarters.  Before continuing, there are four more
characters we can recruit.  

---------------------------
Character: Darrow  -10crd-
Location: Fort Arc
Prerequisite: Savina Recruited.
Description:
Once you've taken Fort Arc, bring Savina there.  If you're entering from the
south, you need to take the second passage to the east.  if you're entering
from the north, Cynas side, take the first eastern passage.  Follow the path
east and you'll eventually go up two sets of stairs.  Watch a scene here.
After the scene, Darrow joins.

A possible requirement for this character would be the completion of Anya's
quest "News of Darrow."
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Yomi     -10cry-
Location: 
Prerequisite: Yula Recruited. Tsaubern Recruited, having completing the Leader
Quest "One More Mission."
Description:
Once you've recruited both Yula and Tsaubern, as well as having completed
Tsaubern's Leader Mission, and have taken Fort Arc, you can recruit this
set of characters.

Go to Lugenik and watch the scene. Speak with the duo if you wish, and then
head to the Inn in Lugenik and put Tsuabern into your party. Head back onto
Main Street to speak with the two.  They will leave.  Now head over to
Grayridge.  Enter the area Outside the Chapter Hall and you'll find the duo
once again.  Speak with them, they're halfway across the screen, and ask
"Maybe. . .you'd like to help us out?"  Both characters then join.
---------------------------
Chihaya joins along with Yomi.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Namna    -10crm-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Must see his visits in Sprout and Bud Seasons.
Description:
There are two chances to recruit Namna.

Namna is a bit touchy.  First, you must wander around until Sprout season
and then enter the Porpos-Kin room. The room is found on the third floor
hallway of the Headquarters by taking the western exit. You'll find him
speaking with Neira, who is an automatic recruit.  After the first scene with
him, you must actually speak with him.  He's the green Porpos in the room,
the one standing next to Neira. You'll find him in Bud Season, this time. 

Once you've finished the events where you recover the three Chronicles, 
you can trigger the next scene with Namna.  Once again, wait until Bud
Season and then enter Neira's room. Speak with him and ask him to join. He
may decline for now.

If Namna doesn't join you after the Three Chronicles events, you can always
recruit him later one, so not all hope is lost.

After you've taken Fort Arc, travel until it's Bud Season once again and
speak with Namna.  This time, his dialogue will change and ask him to join.
he will, with a little, er, friendly persuasion.
---------------------------

After recruiting the characters, it's time to continue.  Head up to the
Physician's Room from the Second Floor Hall.  Watch a scene. You receive
BOUNDLESS AMBER, exit the room and watch the scenes.

Choose "Fine, Just let Liu go." and. . .

---------------------------------------------------
Mission: Showdown with Him!
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Main Character                      -c1032-
Reward: Demon Spear
Description:
He took Liu hostage and said he wanted to me. Why does it have to be like this?
But if it's a fight he wants. . .
Information:
- Face off
- At the Castle Plaza
---------------------------------------------------

============================================
Boss: [Spoiler Boss]
Strength: Slash, Pierce
Weak: Strike
Items: Beast Armor

This battle is alone with the Hero. The Hero has no Marks at his disposal
during this battle, so you'll have to go completely off of physical strength.
It may help if you buy a Giant God Fist from Lugenik to raise the Hero's
HP by 100 points each.  This also helps since the boss is weak to strike and
Clubs are considered Strike-type weapons. 

It helps if you have food items, such as Roasted Corn for Fury or a Dragon
Patty for physical and magical defense improvements. Don't use them
immediately, since the first battle is very short.

The boss hits very hard, for over 130 points, considering it's a duel and he
is surprisingly fast.  Fortunately, he Unbalances himself with his most
powerful attacks, giving you a free round to damage him. 

The battle is in two parts.  After two rounds, the first battle ends, and
the second portion of the battle begins with the Hero having access to his
Marks.  You'll probably want to stick with Flame Vortex this time, since the
boss has rather high physical defense.  Heal whenever you hit 150 HP with a
Mega Medicine.  The boss seems to have around 1,500 to 2,000 HP, so it'll
take a few rounds to take him down.
============================================

Watch the scenes. Mission Accomplished!  You receive FURIOUS ROAR and Sophia
joins you. 

There are now a good deal more characters we can recruit.

---------------------------
Character: Tigre    -10crt-
Location: Cragbark
Prerequisite: Chein Recruited. Leader Quest "Order Soliders in the Plains" a
possible requirement?
Description:
Once you've received "Furious Roar" for the second time, put Diulf in your
party and go to Cragbark. Go to the Town Square and speak with Tigre, who is
in the center of the area. Watch the scene and Tigre joins.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Mun-Tsang -10cru-
Location: Gineh Valley, Fort Arc
Prerequisite: None
Description:
After receiving "Furious Roar" a second time, go to Gineh Valley without Liu
in your party. If you enter from the east, Forest side, follow the path
along normally and you'll find her as you reach the second screen.  If you're
approaching from the Tehah Village side, you must go back one screen to the
east and follow the path. Gineh Valley is somewhat linear, so the character
shouldn't be too difficult to find.

After watching the scene with her, tell her about the Elder and then go back
to your Headquarters. Speak with Moana and accept her new quest.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: I Want to See the Elder
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Mun-Tsang
Reward: 100 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 2
Description:
I'd like to meet with the Elder of the Scribes.  I'll be waiting in Flesaria
Forest, outside of the Castle's entrance.
Information:
- Meet with this person?
- Go to northern Flesaria Forest.
- Accompany Liu.

Though you can do this Quest earlier in the game, you cannot recruit the
character until after you've taken Fort Arc and received "Furious Roar" for a
second time.

Watch the scene.

Liu must fight Mun-Tsang alone. Stick with Silence Sand, and if Liu has decent
gear and moderatly high levels, he can kill Mun-Tsang in one hit. 
---------------------------------------------------

With Liu in your party once again, Head to Fort Arc and enter from the Cynas,
north, side.  You'll find Mun-Tsang right there waiting for you. Speak with
her and she'll join this time.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Keflen   -10crk-
Location: Mysterious Ruins - Janam
Prerequisite: None
Description:
You can only complete the Keflen recruitment quest once you've obtained the
"Furious Roar" for a second time, though it is possible to begin it earlier.
The Quest is started by entering the Mysterious Ruins in the Janam Desert,
which is to the northeast of the Salsabil entrance.  In the ruins, watch a
scene and head to the depths.  Ask Keflen to come with you, and while he will
come and stay at the Castle, he won't actually join you yet.

However, once you receive "Furious Roar" for a second time, speak to him. He's
the man in the blue hat in the Castle Plaza.  Tell him "Okay, sure. I'll go
with ya."

Now enter the Janam Desert from the southern side and follow the river to the
east to enter the Ruins. Follow the western paths until you reach the far end.
Watch the scene.
---------------------------
Belemuel joins along with Keflen.

-ch11p-
This is the last chapter where you will recruit characters.  Things start
getting crazy as the story reaches its climax.

Recruitable Characters - Chapter 11:

Hao-Shi                   -11cro-
Zayin                     -11crz-

Characters: Hao-Shi, Zayin
Items: None
Items - Ruins: Darkenss Stone, Hell Fists
Key Items: None
Enemies: Pawn, Ancient Whale(Sprout?), Hell Lamp, Rarohenga Eye, Akephaloi
Enemies - Ruins: Scorch Minion, Inpu Zombie, Scorch Queen, Bicorn
Boss: Akephaloi, Valfred

---------------------------------------------------
Mission: Check Out Rarohenga
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Sophia                              -c1133-
Reward: Iris Shield, Iris Axe
Description:
If the 11th World has appeared, what Diadora called "Rarohenga," then the 11th
Chronicle must be there.  The Chancellor is sure to look for it himself. I'm
going to go stop him. 
Information:
- Check out Rarohenga
- Find the 11th Chronicle
- Northwest of Pharamond
---------------------------------------------------

Watch the scene upon entry.  Like Citro Plains and the Desert, this is a large,
though rather linear, field-type screen. 

Note:  If you want to recruit another character slightly leater on, bring
Balsam and Yod with you.  You'll miss the Spark ability, but the only enemy
you're likely going to use it on here is the Ancient Whale, which takes quite
some time to kill without Sleep/Unbalance and Spark.  Everything else is weak
towards physical attacks, so you'll be fine without Spark.

============================================
Boss: Akephaloi
Strength: None
Weak: Strike
Items: Death Skull

Now that you're back to using whichever characters, this battle can be very
fast.  The Hero has a new attack, Called Two-Way Thrust, which is very
powerful, and Sophia is an excellent mage for both damage and healing. Also
interesting is that Paralyze lands on this boss.  Try to land a Paralyze on
him in order to save yourself some damage.

The boss likes to buff himself up and increase his phsyical and magical
defense, and he needs it.  The Hero should be pulling out Two-Way Thrusts for
over 1,500 damage.  If you're using Chrodechild or Fredegund, their True
Falcon should also break 1,700.  Mage isn't as effective on the boss, so you
may want to have Sophia act as a healer.

The boss has around 4,000-4,500 HP.  The Hero alone can deal that much damage
in four rounds, so don't expect this to be terribly challenging.  This is more
of a beginning boss.  If you use all of your MP here, though, you'll want to go
recover it.  This boss becomes a regular monster after this.
============================================

Now that you've actually entered the dungeon, if you exit at this point you
can recruit another character.

---------------------------
Character: Hao-Shi  -11cro-
Location: Woodland Village
Prerequisite: None
Description:
Though you can do Hao-shi's recruitment events throughout the game, it's
easiest if you do them all at once, the earliest time you can complete them
is once you've entered Rarohenga once and defeated the boss Akephaloi at the
entrance.  Just exit the area after the battle.

Go to the Woodland Village enter the Path.  Speak to the second man from the
right with Liu in your party. Speak with Hao-Shi a total of three times and
then head back to your Headquarters.

A new Quest should be available. 

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Clean Up the Woodlands
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Porpos Granny
Reward: 50,000 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 3
Description:
Might not be any of my beeswax, but I saw some mighty odd creatures from
Rarohenga going into Noslaw Woods.  Somebody'd better do something. . .
Signed, Porpos Granny.
Information:
- Monster Hunting
- Rarohenga Monsters
- Go to the Noslaw Woods

After you've spoken with Hao-Shi three times and you've entered Rarohenga
once, this quest will appear.

You automatically begin a battle with three Pawns, who are weak to strike and
strong to Pierce.  They're just normal enemies who have around 1,300 HP, so
don't worry too much.

Watch the scenes and you fight a battle with three more of the Pawns. Once
they're dead, kill another three and you're done.
---------------------------------------------------
Hao-Shi joins your army.
---------------------------

Once Hao-Shi has joined you, re-enter Rarohenga.

From the entrance, follow the path northwest.  You'll soon reach a large open
area that serves as an intersection.

From the first intersection, hug the left wall all the way to the western
side of the screen, then head south. At the end of this path is a green dot
that signifies entry to the next zone. Watch the scene here.

============================================
Boss: Valfred
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: None

You can't damage him no matter what, but you do need to stay alive.  Valfred
is very powerful and can do over 200 damage with each attack, so keep everyone
above 250 HP with Sophia. Just defend or attack physically until three rounds
are complete.
============================================
Boss: Valfred
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: None
The second part of the battle is virtually identical to the first, but in
the second part you can actually damage the boss. Just attack him physically
and the battle ends.
============================================

With these scenes complete, we can now finish recruiting every character!
Mission Accomplished!

Head back to the previous screen.

Follow the western wall all the way north and enter the building.

---------------------------
Character: Zayin    -11crz-
Location: Mysterious Ruins - Rarohenga
Prerequisite: Baslam and Yod recruited. 
Description:
After the battle in the Crater, you can recruit Zayin.  It may be possible to
recruit him before the events, too.  You must bring Balsam and Yod with you
into Rarohenga and then take a left at the entrance.  At the second
intersection, you must go north to enter to the ruins. The enemies in this
area are dangerously strong, so be very careful.

Once you're in the ruins, continue north.  At the intersection, ignore the
northern path and continue east. At the next intersection, head South and
open the chest for a DARKNESS STONE. Head back and continue east.  Go north
at the next intersection and open the chest for some HELL FISTS.  Head back
and keep going east, ignore the southern intersection, and follow the path a
long way around north and then west.  At the end of the path, examine the
person.

With Balsam and Yod in your party, you can recruit Zayin.
---------------------------

After recruiting Zayin, exit back to the main area. Head back east
and then south.  Exit this annoying area.

Characters: Kow-Low, Rufa, Enumclaw
Items: Iris Shield, Iris Axe
Key Items: None

Before heading to the Grand Hall, it's time to recruit the final characters
in the game. 

---------------------------
Character: Kow-Low  -11crw-
Location: Woodland Village, Rarohenga
Prerequisite: None
Description:
After clearing the events in the Crater of Rarohenga you can finally recruit
this character.  You may have spoken to him earlier in the game, but you can't
recruit him until the very end.

Enter the Woodland Village and the choose the "Path."  On the far left of the
path is a Scribe you should speak with.  Both the Hero and Liu give different
scenes you speak with him, one with and one without Liu, so try both.

When you head back to Headquarters, a new Quest pops up.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Find Somebody in Rarohenga
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Scribe Female
Reward: . . .30,000 Potch?
Type: Leader
Rank: 1
Description:
One of the Scribes left the woods and hasn't returned.  We think he went to
that fearful place you call Rarohenga.  Do you think you could find him and
bring him back?
Information:
- Conduct a manhunt
- One of the Scribes
- In Rarohenga

This quest only becomes available after you've spoken with Kow-Low in the
Woodland Village and after you've cleared the events in the Crater of
Rarohenga, just entering Rarohenga isn't enough.

Exit the Castle and enter Rarohenga.  Follow the path to the intersection, 
take a left, and then at the next intersection go up.  Enter the Mysterious
Ruins. Watch a scene in here and kill off the set of three Pawns.  They're
normal enemies in Rarohenga, so don't expect anything spectacular from them.

After killing the enemies, the Quest is complete.
---------------------------------------------------

Follow the path north and east and go east at the first two intersections.
Watch a scene and fight two more Pawns.  These ones are a good deal stronger
that the other ones, with higher HP and physical attack power, but you'll still
kill them easily. Kow-Low joins your army. 
---------------------------
Rufa joins along with Kow-Low.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Enumclaw -11cre-
Location: Noslaw Forest
Prerequisite: Having completed the Quests "Get Rid of Citro Monster" and "Get
Rid of Mislato Monster."
Description:
Throughout the game you'll be given quests that require you to kill a monster.
There are three total, "Get Rid of Mislato Monster," and "Get rid of
Citro Monster" are two of the quests required to recruit this character.  After
you've completed those, a third quest will appear once you've finished the
events in the Rarohenga Crater.  Just entering Rarohenga isn't enough.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Get Rid of Woodland Monster
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Scribe Girl
Reward: 50,000 Potch, Death Helm
Type: Leader
Rank: 4
Description:
There's a black monster in the woords!  I'm so scared!  They told me not to
ask humans for help, but I can't stand it anymore!  Signed, Scribe Girl.
Information:
- Monster Hunting
- An Unidentified black monster
- Go to the Noslaw Woods

After the events in Rarohenga and after completing "Get Rid of Citro Monster!"
And "Get Rid of Mislato Monster!" this quest shows up.  Watch the scenes and
you're forced into battle with a Formless Demon.  It's rather slow and has
low defense, but its HP and attack power are surprisingly high.  Expect attacks
that hit for around 150 damage. It seems to have over 5,000 HP, so just keep
attacking and using your moster powerful attacks, such as Two-Way Thrust, and
it will fall.  It doesn't have any extremely dangerous attacks, just normal
moves.

After the monster is dead, watch the scenes.  Enumclaw joins you.
---------------------------------------------------
---------------------------

Watch the scene in the Grand Hall. After a short scene, you may have a hunch
where to go, but if not, head into the Plaza, south from the Entrance Hall,
and enter the Gateway screen to speak with Atrie. 

After that, go into the Tablet Room where Zenoa usually resides, it's just
to the south of the inventor's room.  There's another scene in here.

Another scene occurs in the third floor Chronicle Room, take the east exit
from the main hall. 

After seeing these three scenes, speak with Liu and you can trigger the next
set of events. Watch the scene and then head to the Grand Hall.

HUGE NOTE: This will be your point of no return.  The game practically forces
the information down yuor throat with Moana saying "Let's finish everything
up now" every time you speak with her.  Be sure you've recruited all of the
characters you want to before finishing the scene in the Grand Hall.

In capitals for those who skim:
YOU MUST RECRUIT ALL OF YOUR CHARACTERS BY THIS POINT.

You need four parties, one with the Hero and Liu and the rest each only come
with one.  As you'll expect, the Hero needs the strongest party, but each
other group needs to be able to take care of themselves as well. 

If you bring Diadora with the Hero, you'll get some extra text in some events.
Also, physical attackers and character that can sleep enemies works well in
the Hero's party.

Client: Main Character                      -c1134-
Reward: 30,000 Potch
Description:
Valfred said he was gonna use the 11th book to finish the tirual.  The 12th
World is gonna come!  We gotta storm Cynas and get that True Chronicle before
that happens!
Information:
- Storm Cynas
- Go to the top level of the Tower of the Way
- Defeat Valfred and take the True Chronicle
---------------------------------------------------

After a few scenes. . .

============================================
Boss: Akephaloi x2
Strength: None
Weak: Strike
Items: Death Skull

This battle is almost identical to the battle in Rarohenga, except this time
you encounter two of them.  As with before, they're slow and Sleep and Paralyze
stick on them, as does Silence.  Sleep the second Boss and focus all of your
attacks on the first one to save yourself some damage every round.  Physical
attacks generally work better than Magic does, so focus on that.  The Hero's
Two-Way Thrust is very nice, as always. Liu should stick with Silence Sand and
your other characters use whichever attacks in their arsenal.

They have around 4,000 HP each, but don't use up all of your MP on this one
battle.  That's the hard part. You must kill them without taking too much
damage, but also without using too much MP.
============================================

Recover any lost HP and MP, then head west out of the alley to continue the
scenes.

============================================
Boss: Angel Macoute
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: Death Skull, Darkness Stone

This isn't going to be fun. Macoute has a nasty ability that sleeps and
silences all of your party members as well as dealing 100 damage to all of
them.  if your main attackers and healers get slept, this battle can become
dangerous and quite long. His other attack is a physical attack that does
around 160 damage, which isn't too bad.

Be sure you have status recovery items and Medicines when you head into this
battle, as you never know who sleep will stick on. For this battle, a group
of strong physical attackers works best, since Silence doesn't hinder physical
Marks of the Stars.

Fortunately, though the boss is annoying and can take a good amount of time,
he has weak defense and the Hero should easily break 1,800 damage with every
Two-Way Thrust. Magic should only be hitting for 500 or so, though.  Having
Liu act as a healer whenever he's silenced will ease things up a bit.

Angel Macoute has around 8,000 HP.
============================================

At this point, you can exit onto the Town Menu by heading west.  I would
suggest you start by heading to the Inn to recover any lost HP and MP and
to change the Hero's party around a bit. 

The weapon shop inventory hasn't changed at all, so whenever you're done,
head into the Tower of the Way.

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
~~~                          Tower of the Way                               ~~~
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
                                                                        -c11tw-
Characters: None
Items: Crazed Shield
Key Items: None
Enemies: Pawn, Bishop, Clay Doll, Cynas Mage, Horn Guts, One-King Pawn, Hell
Gatekeeper, Dullahan, Rook, Horn Guts
Bosses: Dullahan, Rook, Angel Beardsley, Fallen Angel, Valfred, Gigas Arm,
The One King

In the tower Entrance, ignore the path to the North and continue west to the
Tower, 1F.  There are enemies in the area this time, so be careful. 

At the first intersection head west and follow the path.  Ignore the northern
path at the second intersection and coninue west. Watch a scene. You get
into an encounter with two Cynas Mages and a Horn Guts. The Cynas mages have
around 1,100 HP, which is enough that you can kill them in a turn or two with
magic.  They only hit for around 60 damage each, so you shouldn't have too
much problem.  The Guts isn't too bad, either.

Continue north to the next intersection. keep heading north all the way to
trigger a battle with Asad's party.

============================================
Boss: Dullahan x2
Strength: Strike
Weak: Slash
Items: Death Skull?

This is fought with Asad's party. Depending on your character's levels, the
enemies will do about 80-130 damage per attack.  You can sleep them with Ice
magic to reduce the damage you take. I would highly suggest using this tactic,
especially if you have low levelled characters in the party.  They don't
do a lot of damage a fully levelled party, though.

Have Asad stick with Flame Vortex and have a character devoted to healing every
round. They only have around 2,000 HP each, so their low HP means that you'll
kill about one every round or two.  
============================================

Asad's part is done.

Once you reach 2F, head south.  Continue all the way south to the bottom of 
the path and open the chest for a CRAZED SHIELD. Go back north, ignoring the
path to the east to where you entered the second floor.  Head directly east,
ignoring the southern path.  Soon, you're forced into another battle, but 
this time with three One-King pawns. They're easy enemies, probably easier
than some of the normal encounters here, but they can silence you.

Continue east and another scene plays.  This time Chrodechild's party fights.

============================================
Boss: Rook x2
Strength: Pierce
Weak: Strike
Items: Uncut Topaz x2

Though the bosses are weak to Strike, the neutrality towards Slash means that
both Chrodechild and Fredegund will do extremely well here.  Chrodechild should
use True Falcon and if you have Fredegund in this group, she should too.
Because the bosses only have 1,500 HP or so, you'll kill them off quickly.

They aren't really even strong enough to be called bosses, if you stick with
physical attacks and target one at a time you'll kill them in a few rounds.
============================================

Chrodechild is done. 

Once you hit 3F, you'll notice that previous bosses, such as a Dullahan and a
Rook have become normal enemies. Ignore the southern path all together on
this floor and instead  head west.  At the intersection go south and follow
this path until you meet an old friend.

============================================
Boss: Angel Beardsley
Strength: None
Weak: Slash
Items: Death Skull, Darkness Stone

Be careful to moderate your MP use in this battle, as you still have encounters
and the rest of the dungeon to clear.  Fortunately, beardsley is weak to
Slash, so a Hero using Dual-Wielded Swords will do well with Two-Way Thrust.
Magic does extremely high damage to Beardsley.  Liu's Silence Sand will easily
break 800 damage with mediocre gear.

Beardsley's main trick is an attack that can unbalance all of your characters
as well as do 70-80 damage to everyone.  If your main attackers are unbalanced,
then the battle can last quite a bit longer than necessary. He also has a
strong physical attack that does around 150 damage.  The damage isn't that
hard to overcome if you have plenty of Mega Medicines and more than one Mage.

Beardsley is a decently easy boss to kill because he has low HP, around 7,000,
and defense.  The main problem is killing him quickly without taking too
much damage and eating too much MP.
============================================

Head north at the Intersection and soon another scene plays.  This time,
it's Diulf's group that fights.

============================================
Boss: Fallen Angel
Strength: Strike
Weak: Slash
Items: Death Skull, Darkness Stone

Diulf's fists won't be incredibly effective in this battle, but anyone with
a Sword, Spear, or Axe works nicely. Magic works nicely on this boss, so
hopefully you have a few magical damage dealers with you.  While it's not
possible to sleep the boss, you can paralyze it.  Diulf naturally has a
Paralysis ability, so try to get that to land on the Fallen Angel. That
will reduce the damage you take.

The boss is decently powerful, but he sticks with strong physical attacks
the only hit one of your characters.  As long as someone acts as a healer
whenever someone hits 200 HP or so, you'll suffer no casualties. The boss only
has around 3,000 HP, so if you brought a mage or two and have a way to
effectively damage the boss, it will be okay.  This is probably the longest
of the battles the three groups deal with.
============================================

You'll automatically ride to 4F.

This floor should be somewhat familiar to you, since you came here earlier in
the game. Ignore the eastern path and head all the way south down the screen,
ignoring the second eastern path as well.  At the bottom of the screen, head
east and ignore the path to the north. The screen tilts north.  Take the
eastern path when you can.  Remember to heal your party before heading to the
next screen, where another boss fight happens. 

It's not really a boss fight, but you're required to fight two Dullahan's at
this point. They only have around 1,500 HP so you should kill them before you
know it, but be sure you don't use too much magic.  There's still more to go!

============================================
Boss: Valfred, Gigas Arms
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: Old Vestments, Revival Statue, Demon Hammer

Valfred only has moderate defense, but you can't attack the Gigas Arm with
short range attacks until you've gotten rid of him, first.  In this battle,
the Gigas Arm is the stronger foe and will do around 120 damage a hit, while
Valfred generally hits 100.  Have your healer keep everyone over 250 HP to
remain safe. Valfred can paralyze your characters and at the same time do
around 200 damage.  You'll find this to be his most annoying move, since
paralyze can slow your battle down considerably. To reduce the damage, you
may want to have Liu use Magic Canopy.

The dangerous part of this battle is the very beginning.  The Gigas Arm isn't
too bad on his own, but paired with valfred's powerful attacks, which can
also paralyze you, your characters will be taking damage very quickly.
While Valfred has the more HP of the two, around 5,000, he's also easier
to target.  The Gigas Arm only has around 3,500 HP but can't be hit by your
short range attackers.  If you broughta long range character, you can set him
or her to attack the Gigas every round while your Mages use strong spells,
like Silence Sand, on him to kill it after two or so rounds.  However you
choose, just keep your HP high.
============================================

After the scenes. . .

============================================
Boss: The One King
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: None

Your HP and MP have been restored, but it's impossible to damage this boss.
Just survive three rounds.  I'd stick with normal physical attacks with
everyone until the battle ends.

During the second portion of the battle, continue sticking with normal
attacks, as you still can't damage him effectively. After three rounds, part
two ends.
============================================

Head out of the Gathering Spot and enter the Town Square.  After the scene,
walk over to the east to continue your scenes. Head back into the Town Square.
When prompted, answer ". . . . . .", "Dirk, but I thought you. . ." and
". . . . . .".  Eventually, after three or so times, you'll get some new
options. "It's all the same. . ."

Head into the Entrance Hall and go up to the Fourth Floor Grand Hall.

Set your party with Erin at the Inn and head to Cynas first.  After the scene,
just exit the area and head back to your Headquarters, where another scene
plays. 

Mission Accomplished!

Head to the Grand Hall for the next scene.  When you're done, exit, and watch
another scene. Head to the third floor and enter the eastern doorway.  Speak
with Mubal.

Be sure to tell your party "No." when they ask if you'll want to use their
method.
I REPEAT: BE SURE TO TELL YOUR CHARACTERS NO DURING THIS SCENE. You will get a
premature "Bad" ending if you don't.  Though, in my opinion, it's worth it
to see the scene at least once so that you understand the story a bit more.
Luo-Tao is required for the next section.

Exit the Headquarters once again and head to the new area that has unlocked.
It's right next to the real Cynas.

Note: Beware the Darkness Knight in this area.  He can confuse all of your
characters at once!  Not only will a battle with one of them be long, but also
dangerous.  Kill them off with your most powerful attacks as soon as you see
one.

After the scene, head west and onto the next screen, where another scene plays.
Head east and south until you reach the intersection.  Just up the northern
path is a chest that contains a DEATH HELM.  Head back and go southeast at the
intersection. Follow this twisting path to the next screen.

Just keep heading north and go down the stairs.  Continue east and south and
then west at the end of the path.  At the intersection, circle around to the
south and open the chest for a SOUL REAPER. Keep heading south, you'll need to
go a bit west to find the path, and continue back outside.

Follow the path west and north for some time. Head west over the bridge when
you can and open the chest to the south for a CRIMSON CAPE.  Continue north
to the next screen. Keep heading north, ignoring the path to the west.

Watch a scene.

============================================
Boss: Queen
Strength: None
Weak:  Pierce
Items: Uncut Diamond, Goddess Breath 

The Queen is the first nasty boss in some time.  She has an attack that hits
the entire front row for 250 damage!  You'll definitely want a healer who
uses Healing Wave or Healing Tide every round. She also has a strong single
target physical attack, and to make things worse for you, she is very fast.

This battle is more about being absolutely sure to heal every round than
actually being challenging.  If you've brought Fredegund or Chrodechild their
True Falcon will do a good  2000 damage.  The Hero's Two-Way Thrust is also
powerful, but somewhat risky to use since it eats up his HP.  When the boss
is hitting as hard as it is, it's dangerous to take off that much HP of your
characters at once.

Luo-Tao will probably a good healer here, so you don't have to bring another
character along to do the job.  That way, the other two characters you bring
can act as damage dealers, either through magic or physical skills.

The Queen has around 10,000 HP.
============================================

You receive PEACEFUL END, which gives everyone their final mark.  The Hero
get Ire, which is particularly useful.

Mission Accomplished!

Now we have to walk out.  Follow the paths south through two screens, then
head north and east, north some more, and west onto another screen. Keep
heading south and then head east through the last screen to exit the area.

Head back to your Headquarters.

Enter the Plaza and head south onto the Gateway screen.  When you're ready,
head to the Grand Hall. When you're ready to continue, choose "Nope," since
Liu is asking if there's anything you need done.  If you say "Yeah," the scene
ends and you can go back to exploring.

if you do decide to explore to know, please note that there's a minor
translation error when speaking with Liu.  If you tell him "You Bet [I'm
ready]!" the game considers it a decline.  If you choose "Not Quite [Ready]"
the game will continue.

Whenever you feel you're ready, you can watch some scenes if you choose to
"Talk to some people around the castle." A scene with Maybelle plays
immediately.  Chrodechild and Fredegund are found in the Grand Hall.  Minen,
Buchse, and Geschutz have a scene in their room if you've recruited Tsaubern.
You'll see a scene with Icas after you exit the third floor residence.
After you exit the Chronicle room, Morrin has a scene, too. Icas' scene
continues once you exit the Blade's Room, Morrin's continues when you exit the
Physician's office.

If you speak with Rajim, on the first floor, you'll learn a hint about the
Hero's ancestry. Put that together with what Atrie told you before Cynas said
and you'll probably understand who he is and where he comes from. 

Speaking to pretty much any character gives you either more information on the
world, their personality, or past events. Hao-Shi gives some interesting 
information about the Scribes and Nakil gives some information about Luvais.
Zenoa has some interesting information about Stars.  Dogha tells you why Sphiel
won't appear before him. 

When you're done speaking to everyone, head to your room and go to sleep.
Watch the scenes.

Your main party for this section includes an unremovable Marica and Jale.
Storywise, Liu balances this party off well, but you may want to bring another
physical attacker, since Marica is proficient in both healing and damaging
with decent gear. You may want to set Rufa as your Support to help you escape
from encounters.

We got 12 Chronicles!  Now we can erase those 12 pillars around Cynas, climb
the tower, and take out the One King!  This is gonna be the final battle!
here we go!!!
Information:
- Break into twelve teams and get rid of the twelve pillars.
- The goal is to take down the One King.
---------------------------------------------------

You begin in Cynas Alley.  As with before, you can explore the area and speak
with anyone.  The weapon shop has nothing new, but you can change your last
party member at the Inn. 

When you're ready, enter the Front Plaza. You can change teams completely at
this point, so just add your best group.  A strong group would be the Hero,
Chrodechild, Fredegund, and either Sophia or Diadora.  Once again, just add
anyone you like, they don't have to be the strongest characters.

Head west off the map.  Enter the new area, Statue of the One King for some
scenes.

============================================
Boss: Death Valfred
Strength: None
Weak: Slash
Items: Robe of Death, Beast King Swrd

Your strategy for this battle entirely depends on your characters. I'd suggest
going all out right at the start, since you can exit the Statue and go to the
Inn to heal.

Heave the Hero use Ire and then Two-Way Thrust over and over.  Have your
physical attacker(s) use their strongest attacks, and have your mage(s)
damage the boss and then act as healers whenever necessary.  Watch the Hero's
HP, though, since it will be drained by Two-Way Thrust. An Ire'd Two-Way
Thrust can break 4,000 damage! The Hero alone should be able to take the boss
down in four rounds without anyone helping his damage (Ire+Two-Way Thrustx3).

Death Valfred isn't particularly fast, but his physical attack is decently
powerful. It will probably hit for around 180 or so damage.  Keep everyone
healthy with your mage and then

Death Valfred has around 9,500-10,000 HP.
============================================

After the battle, head back to the Cynas Inn and rest.  If you enter the Front
Plaza, you can change characters with Moana and save your game.  I would
highly suggest bringing Rufa with you if you get annoyed by random encounters.

Note:  Like in the Other Cynas, the Darkness Knights are still extremely
dangerous monsters.  Kill them off as quickly as you can before they cause
confusion and you kill yourself.

Another Note:  Though I'll lead you through the dungeon to all of the items,
if you just want a fast way through generally you'll want to avoid any
paths going downstairs.  There are a few that you have to take, but most of
them lead to items.  Also, if you plan on getting all of the items, expect
to get bored of random encounters at around the third floor and you'll just
end up escaping from everything.  You may want to try to hit level 60, but
other than that don't even bother with all of the encounters.  Rufa is
especially recommended if you want all of the items. 

Final Note:  I'd suggest setting the Hero with Two-Way Thrust, Ire, and the
Healing Wave abilities.  This will make your final battles much, much
easier. 

In the Statue head north to the intersection. Head west and follow the path to
the end.  In a chest is some ULTIMATE FISTS.  Head back to the intersection
and go east.  At the very end of this path, you'll find two sets of stairs
that lead to the next screen. 

Start with taking the eastern/right stairway.  Follow the path east and south
and then open the chest at the end.  The chest contains a GUNGNIR. Head back
north and west and back to the previous screen.  This time, take the western/
left set of stairs to the second floor.

Follow this path south and at the intersection go west down the stairs.  This
path is very long and twists north and west and finally south, but at the
end you'll find a powerful GODDESS BREATH Staff.  Head back the long path to
the previous screen. 

At the intersection go south and follow the path up the stairs onto the next
screen. On 3F, follow the path west and north until you hit another
intersection. Start by heading west and taking the path north and back
downstairs to 2F.  Head straight south and open the chest for a TOTEM POLE.
Go back north to the previous screen and head back to the intersection.

Head east and as you head up the stairs you'll watch a scene. There's a
save point in here for you to use. The chest also contains an excellent
STAR ARMOR. Exit at the top of the stairs.

On 5F head north to the intersection head east and down the stairs. Back on 4F
just follow the path to the end.  You'll find a chest containing a HERO'S
CAPE. Head back to 5F and take the southern intersection to the end, where
you'll hit 6F.

On 6F,just follow the path south and east until you hit the intersection,
where you should taken the western path back to 5F.  There's a chest down
here that contains a HERO'S ARMOR. This one's not as good as the Star Armor,
unfortunately. Head back to the previous screen and take the north path at
the intersection. Take the stairs going south.

Head south at the intersection immediately on this second area of 5F. Follow
this path through three screens back down to 3F.  At the very end you'll find
a chest that contains some MASTER'S GLOVES.  Head back north through the
screens and back to 5F, where you should head north at the intersection this
time. Follow the path and you'll soon come across a chest containing a
GODDESS RAINMENT.  Head up the stairs at the end.

Back on 6F, follow the passage all the way down the screen and take the western
exit to the next screen.

You should now be on the "Path to Throne."  You should know what that means,
so heal up any lost MP and HP. Head west through  three screens.  When the
last screen turns yellow, you'll know you're there.  Watch the scene.

============================================
Boss: The One King
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: None

The boss typically uses strong single target physical attacks that can break
200 damage.  That's not too bad on its own, but he's very fast. He'll probably
get a turn off before your healer, so you need to make sure you keep everyone
at maximum HP.

On the first Round, you'll want to spend time raising your character's offense
through Ire and if you're using characters with defensive abilities, such as
Magical Canopy, start with those. The Hero's Two-Way Thrust is excellent, and
any strong physical attackers should use their best physical skills. The Hero
should do around 3,000 damage with each Two-Way Thrust, while Chrodechild
and Fredegund can hit 2,500 damage with each True Falcon.  Characters
like Vaslof who can do 250% damage and have a Mark granting immunity to
unbalance are excellent here, too. Don't go all out just yet, but if you do,
make sure you have the MP items to heal.

A solid strategy might just be to use your most powerful attacks every round
until you run out of MP and then just use Herbs to recover it.  That is the
fastest and safest way to finish this and the next battle.

This is only the first battle. The One King has around 11,000 HP.
============================================
Boss: The One King
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: None

Recover any lost HP immediately and rebuff your characters with Ire and the
Fury Status.

The One King is a bit slower this time, but he's more powerful.  This time he
uses row attacks, so your backline fighters will be hit as well as your
frontline fighters.  The main attack does around 200 damage to two people,
so you'll want to have your healer use Healing Wave every round. he also has
a slightly weaker attack that hits everyone for 130 damage, which only
reinforces using Healing Wave.  Everyone should be over 300 HP at all times.

Once again, your Hero is probably going to be a main damage dealer here. A
Two-Way Thrust with Ire will break 3,000 damage. As with before, a solid
strategy will be to just go all out with your most powerful attacks and
use Herbs to heal them at the beginning of every battle.  Fredegund will
probably end up being more powerful thn Chrodechild here because of her
innate Ire skill, while Chrodechild must rely on Roasted Corn to get the
effect. 

When a character runs out of MP, have them heal their own MP, don't make the
healer do it.  Keep the healer healing every round, even if only one
character is wounded.

This form of The One King has around 14,000-15,000 HP.
============================================
Boss: The One King
Strength: None
Weak: None
Items: None

Start this battle by having every character use Herbs to recover their own
MP while the healer heals any remaining wounds from the second form. On the
second round have your characters who can Ire and Buff up your defense do so.

This boss will take quite a bit longer than the others, since he will buff
his physical defense and you probably won't be attacking with your Mage(s)
since they'll be healing.  Magic should be able to do around 800 damage, but
that won't match your most powerful physical attackers, even with the King
buffed. If for some reason you do have time, throw out a strong single
target attack that doesn't cost a lot of MP.

This time, The One King will almost always act before your characters so there
is no time for being lenient on healing.  As with before, have someone healing
every round. 

This battle gets dangerous when the One King starts using his ultimate attack.
This attack can break 350 damage on every character!  I would suggest defending
with most of your characters after this round until you can get a Healing
Tide or some Mega Medicines and a Healing Wave off to reduce the damage you
take and help you survive. If you're having problems surviving it, you
can always get a Giant God Fist Club so you can add 100 HP to a character.
These can be dual wielded for an extra 200 HP.  With that, some characters
can hit 700-800 HP.  Be warned, once the King starts using this attack he may
use it over and over as many times as he wants!  Make sure everyone always
has more than 400 HP, even if that means only attacking with one character
per round.  Once he starts doing this, you're in danger.

If you're having trouble surviving, set another character with healing
abilities.  The Hero naturally has Healing Tide which will completely restore
your party, but also stop him from acting as a main damage dealer. Again,
raise your HP with Giant God Fists, and finally defend. Don't even risk it
with this and have everyone defend if they're under 300 HP.

Other than his ultimate attack and self-buffs, the one king can do single
target damage for around 350 HP. After the ultimate attack, that's nothing,
though.

It's good to note that how easy this boss is does require some luck.  If you
are hit by two of the bosses Ultimate Attacks in a row if he takes an
extremely fast turn, and it does happen, before your characters can heal,
you're not going to survive.  it's also purely luck based if he buffs himself
or not.  If he buffs himself, expect the battle to take qute a bit longer than
if he does not.

Expect this battle to take a while, the boss has around 24,000 HP.
============================================


Congratulations!  Sit back and enjoy the ending.

If you collected all 108 Stars of Destiny, you will get the "true" ending,
which is an added cutscene to the normal ending. 

Unfortunately, there is no New Game+.

                    --- Starbearers: Stars of Destiny ---

===============================================================================
-s4sod-
One staple of the Suikoden series is that it has always had a large variety
of quirky characters to recruit.  Suikoden Tierkreis is no different.  Like
past Suikoden games, if you get all 108 Starbearers, you get the "true"
ending to the game.

Unlike in past Suikoden games, the characters are not called "Stars of Destiny,"
but instead are called Starbearers.

Note that though you may use some story characters before you recruit them,
until you actually get the "Message," or until the game says, with a chime:

"[Name] is now an ally."

The characters have not officially joined you.  This is not always the case,
however. Many characters can still be used even if you never get the message,
such as the first group of the game.  The game is actually surprisingly
inconsistent when it comes to this.

These are characters that you must go out of your way, by either doing quests,
speaking to them, or bringing other party members to them to recruit. 

This same information can be found in the main Walkthrough of the game, but
if you're looking purely for Stars of Destiny and want as little help in the
main game as possible, this is the place for you!

I'd like to point out that Suikoden Tierkreis is rather unbalanced when it
comes to character recruitment.  If you plan on recruiting everyone, be sure
you expect to spend time after every major story event recruiting. Recruitment
starts off very light, gets extremely heavy through the middle of the game, and
finally slows down a bit near the end.

Chapter 3:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
-ch3rc-
---------------------------
Character: Anya     -rc3an-
Location: Grayridge Mines
Prerequisite: Having named your Headquarters.
Description:
After the scene with Atrie once you've finished the Magedom events, that is,
once you've named your Headquarters, head to Grayridge. Enter the Mines from
the town map.  If you've not seen the inventor scene here, you'll see it now,
but otherwise head just to the east and you'll see a character near the top
of the screen. She's on the first screen, it's hard to miss her. Speak with
Anya and ask her "You wanna work for us?" to recruit her.

If you're late in the game, you can find Anya in the Alley, which is accessed
from the Town Map.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Selen    -rc3sn-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Flower Season
Description:
Oh, Selen's not fun at all to recruit.
After the scene with Atrie once you've finished the Magedom events, that is,
once you've named your Headquarters, you need to walk around outside until it's
Flower Season.  To tell which season is Flower, look at the top left corner.
Flower Season is represented by an open flower, NOT the Flower that is closed.
The first Flower season in the game occurs two months after the game starts.
If you've not been wandering around and exploring, Flower Season should just
be starting by the time you name your Headquarters.

Enter your Headquarters during Flower Season and watch a scene. Once you've
watched the scene and have been introduced to Selen, exit the castle and walk
around outside until the next Flower Season.  That is around 90 days through
the three seasons.  When it's Flower Season again, enter the Castle and you
should automatically get a scene.  If you don't, try resting at the Inn or
finishing any storyline Missions you're currently on. It does not matter if
Jale is in your party or not to encounter Selen.

Your second encounter with Selen is a real fight and, depending on your level,
this is not an easy fight at all.  If you're trying to fight Selen as early as
possible, it's going to take some luck to kill her. Jale should start off
by using Bind Bolt and hope you Paralyze her.  Selen will probably be doing
over 100 damage a hit, so she's easily capable of killing you in two hits.
You're just going to have to wait until she unbalances herself to damage her.
You must absolutely keep your HP over 210 at all times or Selen will destroy
you in one hit.  At low levels, this battle is highly luck based, so you
may want to wait until around level 25 or so to do it.  That's not saying it's
impossible to beat her around level 17 or so, though. You need to be liberal
with Mega Medicines and Mints in order to beat Selen quickly. If the battle
drags on too long, even if you have good luck you'll lose. If the battle
goes absolutely perfectly and Selen is paralyzed by the first Bind Bolt,
use Two-Way Strike twice, then attack physically and heal until she dies.

I would suggest that, if you lose, you reset and try to beat her again, since
walking around until Flower Season can be somewhat annoying. If you lose, you
must wait until another Flower season comes along.

Once you beat Selen, she joins you.

Storyline Missions can hinder your progress in this quest, so when you're
recruiting Selen, be sure not to have one active.

-ch4rc-
---------------------------
Character: Sisuca   -rc4sc-

Description:
After you've recruited 10 members into your army and after the events with
Dirk in the Headquarters you can recruit Sisuca.  You first need to see a
short scene with her on the World Map, where she mentions that your army has
gotten quite large.  Then, head to Citro Village and enter the Elder's House.
It's possible that you may have to have compleed the First Empress Consort
series of quests before Sisuca becomes available.

Watch a scene and Sisuca leaves. Head back to your castle and enter the
bar for another scene with Sisuca, where she officially joins.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Tongatihi -rc4tg-
Location: Corridor
Prerequisite: None.
Description:
You must have finished the events in the Corridor and have access to it, so
once you've brought Cougar back to your Headquarters and watched the scenes
with him you can start this quest.

Once you're in the Corridor, head off the screen to the right and speak with
the Wanderer Man for a scene. 

Head back to Moana and accept her Mission "Window Information," which should
now be open.

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

it no matter which you do, so just send one person out and wander around for
five days and come back with a failed Mission report.
---------------------------------------------------

Once you've failed the Mission, you need to accept it again later on.  If you
walk around a bit and the quest isn't showing up, complete another quest or
continue through the game a bit. 

Soon, another Quest will show up from Tongatihi.
---------------------------------------------------

Just deploy anyone for this quest.  You're not going to be able to succeed at
it no matter which you do, so just send one person out to wander around for
ten days and come back with a failed Mission report.
---------------------------------------------------

After you've failed both Quests, Window Information and Windows from Beyond
the Gateway, head back into the Corridors and speak with Tongatihi. Ask him
"Well, can you make us Windows?" and he'll join you.
---------------------------

Note: Be sure to complete the quest "Arcane Academy Tour" as soon as you can,
as it will be important for recruiting a set of characters later on.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Chapter 5:

-ch5rc-
---------------------------
Character: Gadburg  -rc5gb-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: None
Description:
You can recruit Gadburg once you've begun the "Make Allies of the Porpos"
Mission. 

When you first exit to the World Map after accepting the Mission, you'll
see a scene with Gadburg.  To trigger the scene, you need to exit from the
North, or from the Plaza/Gateway side.  If you warp to Grayridge, you can
also recruit him by heading to your Headquarters, since Grayridge is to the
north.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Luvais   -rc5vs-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Having seen the event in Grayridge Order Chapter Hall.
Description:
First, you need to watch a scene at the Chapter Hall in Grayridge that happens
with Luvais.  Once you finish the events in Tehah, that is, when Liu mentions
the Ch'olui Mountains are available, you can recruit Luvais.

Head back to your Headquarters and immediately upon entry watch a scene.  If
you've not seen the scene in Grayridge, go watch it and if the scene at
Headquarters does not immediately trigger, try progressing through the story
or staying the night at an Inn and coming back to the Headquarters. Storyline
Missions don't seem to hinder the scene in the Headquarters, as you can get
this scene easily during the "Make Allies of the Porpos" Mission.

If you're still having trouble, you may need to see Luvais in the town of
Tehah.

When the scene triggers, your current party is forced into an encounter with
three "Cynas Man" type enemies.  They're decently strong foes, but they have
no terribly dangerous attacks. After clearing the battle, Luvais joins your
army.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Muro     -rc5ro-
Location: Gineh Valley
Prerequisite: None
Description:
Once you've completed the events in the Tehah village you can recruit Muro. A
Party Quest, called "Demon Hunting in Gineh" becomes available.  We must
do this Quest to recruit Muro.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Demon Hunting in Gineh
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Peddling Wanderer
Reward: 10,000 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 1
Description:
There's a demon in Gineh valley! I'm not kidding! A big, horned thing! You've
got to get rid of it for us! Signed, Peddling Wanderer.
Information:
- Monster hunting?
- A huge horned man
- Gineh Valley

Enter Gineh Valley from the Tehah Village side, the west side, and head all
the way down to the most southern portion of the screen to trigger the scene.
Continue west and onto the waterfall screen.  You'll see another scene here,
and when given the option, choose "You wanna come with us?" to recruit Muro.
---------------------------------------------------

Choosing "You wanna come with us?" during the scene will allow you to recruit
Muro. Don't forget your reward from Moana!
---------------------------

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Chapter 6:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
-ch6rc-
Note: Before going too far into Chapter 6, be sure you've completed the quest
"Arcane Academy Tour," which appeared some time after you finished the Second
Consort Quests.

---------------------------
Character: Semias   -rc6sm-
Location: Naineneis, Headquarters
Prerequisite: None
Description:
During the main storyline early in the game you once made a bet with this
character during the Grayridge mines events.  Once you've finished the Mission
"Make Allies of the Porpos" you can finally recruit him.  Head to Naineneis
Inn and speak with him.  he's the red-clothed character.

After the scene, head back to your Headquarters and enter the Tavern, which is
just to the left of the Entrance Hall.  He should be near the stairs.  Speak
with him and he joins you.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Wustum   -rc6wt-
Location: Tehah Village, Ch'olui Mountains
Prerequisite: Watch a scene in Tehah Inn.
Description:
First, you need to watch a scene in Tehah Inn.  It has been said this scene
has a season requirement of Sprout, but I was able to trigger it during Flower
Season just fine.  What you just need to do it speak with the owner of the
Item Shop, it doesn't happen automatically. The woman is the woman on the far
left of the screen. 

Next, head back to your Headquarters.  If you're doing this later in the game,
you don't want Asad in your party for the follow events.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Find the Chef
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Shairah                          
Reward: 100 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 4
Description:
Lemme get right to the point. Have you seen a chef named Wustum? If you have,
haul him in here to the Mage City, would ya?  Thanks.  Signed, Shairah.
Information:
- Conduct a manhunt?
- Ask Asad for more information.

If you're having problems triggering this quest, be sure you're not on any
other Leader Quests.

Without Asad in your party, head to El-Qaral and then enter the Imperial
Plaza.  In here, speak with Asad, who should be just on the left.  Once you've
spoken with Asad, go back to Tehah Village and speak with the Innkeeper.

You must then enter Ch'Olui Mountains from the eastern side. Follow the path
north and at the second intersection take the eastern paths to the next
screen.  Here, you should be near the sign.  Head completely west and slightly
north towards the top of the mountain to trigger the scene. 

You're forced to fight two Janam Soldiers and a Janam Mage as the level 10
Wustum.  Just use physical attacks and you'll win easily, since the enemies
are very low levelled, too. 

This finished the Quest and Wustum joins you.  You fail the Quest, however,
and there's no way to complete it. 
---------------------------------------------------

Wustum is a missable character.  You must recruit him before the events with
the desert.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Nomno    -rc6nm-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Wustum is an ally.
Description:
You've actually used this guy during the Ladzaa events, but he never officially
joined you.  To get him to join, you must be after the events with the Magedom
and after Chrodechild has joined your army.  

You'll find Nomno sleeping in the Dining Hall, which is found by taking the far
eastern exit from the Trading Post, which is north of the Plaza. The Hero will
try, to no avail, to speak with Nomno.  Now head up to the Third Floor
Residence (west exit on the third floor) and enter the Porpos room.  Speak
with the pink Porpos, Nemne for another scene.

Now head back to the Dining Hall and speak with Wustum, who is required to
recruit Nomno.  A short scene plays and Nomno joins your army.

Nomno is missable if you did not recruit Wustum by the time a desert appears.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Yadima   -rc6yd-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Expanded Headquarters.
Description:
You cannot recruit Yadima until after the events with the Magedom and after
Chrodechild has joined your army.

You probably met Yadima early in the game in his house at the Citro Plains.
If not, go speak with him there.  Afterwards, you'll find him in your Castle
if you take the western exit from the Trading Post, which is north of the
Plaza.  This leads to the Farm. Speak with Yadima and he unlocks a quest from
Moana.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Plowin' the Field
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Yadima                        
Reward: 5,000, Citro Tomato, Janam Potato
Type: Party
Rank: 1
Dispatch: 1 Day
Description:
I wanna get that field I found behind the castle plowed and ready to plant.
Reckon you can send me a few strong types to help? Signed, Yadima.
Information:
- Help Yadima with Field Work
- Needs somebody strong

You need a group of four characters that each have over 110 attack power.  It's
possible that the minimum is 125, so just send high strength characters just
in case.  The value is based on your "Total" attack power, which is "Base"+
"Equipped" Attack power.  Early in the game, characters such as Jale, Selen,
and Asad work well.  For the last character, just make sure they're levelled
proerly and give them a strong weapon. Nomno starts with over 100 Total
Attack Power, so he's another good choice.  Just 100 won't work, though, it
needs to be at least 110, so upgrade his weapon.

You'll know you have good characters if they seem confident in their speech
at the top of the screen.
---------------------------------------------------

Once you clear the quest "Plowin' the Field," go speak with Yadima on the
farm in your Headquarters and you'll recruit him. 
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Icas     -rc6cs-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Complete the Quests "Find Somebody," "Find Icas," and "Bring
Icas to me."
Description:
Completing the Quest "Find Someboy" is quite easy and just requires a trip to
the Salsabil Inn, however the other quest can be quite difficult.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Find Icas
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Morrin
Reward: 500 Potch
Type: Party
Dispatch: 7 Days
Rank: 1
Description:
Please bring a man named Icas to me.  He's in Cynas, but he won't be able to
stand the Order rules long.  You can catch him when he escaped Cynas. Signed,
Morrin.
Information:
- Conduct a manhunt for Icas.
- Around Grayridge?
- use pretty women as bait?

This is the second in a set of recruitment quests, the first being "Find
Somebody."

To successfully complete this quest, you must have a group of "cute" or
"pretty" girls.  It seems you need at least 4 in the main party, since three
and one in the Support didn't work for me.  You actually will not have enough
girls to complete the quest until after the events when Chrodechild join
the party, so don't try to complete it until a bit after you actually get
access to it.

Characters like Marica, Sisuca, Zenoa and Manaril work for this quest. 
---------------------------------------------------

Watch a scene after you complete "Find Icas" and start the quest "Bring
Icas to me."  After accepting "Bring Icas to me," Icas joins. However!
We're not done yet.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Bring Icas to me
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Moana
Reward: 1,000 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 1
Description:
Morrin, was it?  That woman that asked us to find Icas.  Now she wants you to
bring Icas to her.
Information:
- Take Icas to Morrin.
- Morrin is in Salsabil Inn.

This one's pretty easy, once you've actually found Icas. Just allow Icas
to join when he asks and the scenes will play automatically. You're
forced into a battle with "Assassin."  He's rather strong because he can
kill characters in one hit, but he lacks HP and will die quickly.
---------------------------------------------------

After finishing this set of quests, you not only recruit Icas, but Morrin and
Yovel.
---------------------------
Morrin and Yovel join along with Icas once the quest "Bring Icas to Me" has
been completed.

Character: Geschutz -rc6gz-
Location: Mislato River
Prerequisite: Must complete the quests "Arcane Academy Tour" and "Special
Proposal."
Description:
After the events with the Magedom and Chrodechild had joined your army, you can
finally recruit this trio.  Their first quest is covered earlier in the game,
called Arcane Academy Tour.  This Quest cannot be done successfully and
failing it is how you trigger the second quest, "Special Proposal."

To complete "Arcane Academy Tour," just enter the Mislato plains from the
east side.  It's very possible that this quest becomes unavailable after
the events where Chrodechild joins your army and the lake appears.

Basically, if you don't do "Arcane Academy Tour" early on, you may be in
trouble while recruiting these characters.  I've tried to put some

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Special Proposal
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Geschutz
Reward: Rifle
Type: Leader
Rank: 1
Description:
Sorry to bother you again, but we'd like to talk again if you don't mind.
We'll be waiting at the same place as before.  Signed, Geschutz.
Information:
- Talk?
- Meet at Mislato River.

Watch the scene that occurs automatically after you start this quest.  Tell
them Yes, and the Quest will be complete and the trio joins your army.
---------------------------------------------------

Geschutz joins your army.
---------------------------
Minen and Buchse join along with Geschutz.

Character: Khemia   -rc6kh-
Location: Citro Village
Prerequisite: Must have recruited the trio of Geschutz, Minen, and Busche.
Description:
Bring either Geschutz or Minen to Citro Village and enter the Town Square
area.  The man is standing on the western side of the square and has a brown
coat on. Speak with him and he automatically joins.  He's a strange one.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Hafin     -rc6hf-
Location: Mislato River
Prerequisite: Asad Recruited.
Description:
Asad must be in your army for this, so you have to be after the events when
the lake appears and after Chrodechild joins your army.  Head to the Mislato
River and the scene should automatically occur without you even entering the
river.

If you don't get it immediately, it may require you to be in Flower Season.
Asad must be in your party when you walk onto the Mislato River for the scene
to occur.

Hafin is a missable character and the chance to recruit him will be gone once
the desert appears.  You'll know when that is. 

If you recruit Hafin before Nakil, Nakil will appear later.  If you recruit
Nakil first, Hafin will appear later.  The recruitment requirements switch,
but you'll be able to do both if you know how.  I have put Hafin being
recruited first, as you can get him the earlier of the two, but you can also
get Nakil in the same way, but later on in the game.

Character: Sotah    -rc7th-
Location: Tehah Village
Prerequisite: None
Description:
You can actually attempt to recruit Sotah before this point, but he'll always
decline you.  Sotah is found in the Residence in Tehah Village.  Speak with
him and he shows you information about game terms, places, and people. Ask to
see his information about 4 times total and you can ask to recruit him.

Once you've recruited Chrodechild and the lake has appeared, Sotah will
finally accept when you ask him to join you.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Nhazu    -rc7nz-
Location: Tehah Village
Prerequisite: None
Description:
You'll find Nhazu in the Tehah Village Plaza once the lake has appeared and
you've recruited Chrodechild into your army. Speak with him and then head
to the Mountains.

Enter the Ch'olui Mountains and stick west at the first intersection and go
east twice at the second and third. On the large open screen, head towards
the mountain peak, which is by going to the west. Continue west and the Hero
will make a comment about the state of the mountains. Open the chest to the
south for some WTR DRAGN CLAWS. and then you need to head all the way back
down the mountain.  The plains area is a dead end for now.

Re-enter Tehah Village and speak with Nhazu. Tell Nhazu you'll help him and
watch a scene. Now you have to walk down the mountain. Again.

Head back to your Headquarters and accept the quest "Search for Nhazu!"  If
it doesn't show up at first, make sure you're not on any other Leader Quests
or try to complete another Quest.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Search for Nhazu!
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Tehah Elder
Reward: 10,000 Potch

We haven't seen Nhazu since yesterday.  The villagers are searching the
mountains, but we can't find him.  Could you help us? Signed, Tehah Elder.
Information:
- Conduct a manhunt.
- Nhazu.
- The Ch'olui Mountains.

This is just a sequence of events. Head south down the screen and enter the
cave.  Speak with Nhazu for another scene. 
---------------------------------------------------

Watch the scenes and head back to your Headquarters and Nhazu joins you.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Dogha    -rc7dg-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Nhazu Recruited.
Description:
Oddly enough, Dogha doesn't join along with Nhazu.

Once you've finished the Nhazu recruitment Quests, Dogha will be at your
Headquarters.  You'll find him near the southern exit, which is the exit
if you go east from the First Floor Entrance Hall. You don't even have to
leave the Headquarters to find him. 
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Maybelle -rc7mb-
Location: Ch'olui Mountains/Headquarters
Prerequisite: Visited Ch'olui Peak once before.
Description:
At the peak of Mount Ch'olui, the Hero comments about the mountain.
Exit the mountains completely, from the entrance, not the plains side, and 
head up the peak.  This is the area where the Hero makes a comment about the
state of the Mountain.  You'll find a woman at the top of this area during
your second visit to the area.

You exit to the Plains.  Head back to your Headquarters. Speak with Moana and
accept the Quest "Find My Fated Lover <3"

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Find My Fated Lover <3
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Maybelle
Reward: 10,000 Potch
Type: Leader

I am reborn from Warrior of the Light Raphelancia. 1000 years ago in our former
lives, Warrior of Light Ru'ukahthis and I swore our love.  Please find his
reincarnation.
Information:
- Conduct a manhunt.
- Fated Lover?

This quest begins after you've met Maybelle near the peak of the Ch'olui
Mountains after you've left the area once and re-entered.  To complete it,
remove any females from your group and enter the Hero's room.  His room is on
the Fourth Floor, east exit. Watch a scene.
---------------------------------------------------

Put a female member in your group, it doesn't matter who, and exit your the
Headquarters on foot. Choose the option "That's IT! I can't take it any more!"
Watch a scene and then turn around and head right back into your room.
After another scene, Maybelle joins you if you say she can.

If you're having problems getting Maybelle to appear, try just taking everyone
out of your group.  While it's possible to get the scene to trigger with some
people in the group, you might as well take everyone out. Jale may be a key
character to take out of your party, since it seems the scene won't trigger if
he's in it. 
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Sphiel   -rc7hl-
Location: Ch'olui Mountains
Prerequisite: Dogha Recruited.
Description:
To begin this quest, you need Dogha in your army. Dogha requires Nhazu. 

The Quest "Get Rid of the Snow Fairy" should appear once you've recruited
Dogha.  It won't appear if you're on another Leader Quest, so finish off any
of those you have, first. 

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Get Rid of the Snow Fairy
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Tehah Youth Group
Reward: Ch'olui Cabbage

There's a Snow Fairy in the Ch'olui Mountains! Several of us have gotten
snow blasted at us up there!  We need your help! Signed, Tehah Youth Group.
Information:
- Monster Hunting
- Snow Fairy?
- Go to the Ch'olui Mountains.

Without Dogha in your party, head to the Ch'olui Mountains.  Head to the large
open screen, which is the second screen, and take the northeastern exit up
to Dogha's Cottage.  Head up to the cottage area, and take the northeastern
path.  Near where there is a chest, which should be empty if you cleared the
area originally, speak with the woman. You're forced into a battle, which
you will lose.

Exit the Ch'olui Mountains and go back to your Headquarters.  Speak with Dogha,
who is near the southern, east from the Entrance Hall) exit.  Now head -back-
to the Ch'ouli Mountains to the same place where you originally found the
Fairy, which is west of Dogha's Cottage, and, when prompted, tell her "I'm
Full."

Ask the woman to join and you'll recruit her.
---------------------------------------------------
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Balsam   -rc7ls-
Location: Grayridge Mines, Headquarters
Prerequisite: Must have vistsed him earlier in the game.
Description:
During any trip to Grayridge Mines after the Headquarters are named, you'll
encounter this shady character.  Watch the scene with him at this point and
once your Headquarters have upgraded, you can continue his Quest.

Once the Headquarters have upgraded, head to the rooftop, where the Hero will
comment on how large the Headquarters has become and that he remembers an
inventor in Grayridge Mines.  Head to Grayridge Mines when you have the
chance and speak with the two.  Then, bring them back to Headquarters.  They
won't join you just yet and instead stay standing in the Fourth Floor Hallway
until you bring them a Pump.

You can buy the Pump from the Naineneis Trade Center.  Examine the open
chest and the Hero will take the pump. Bring this back to Balsam and Yod
and they'll join you, along with making an elevator for your Headquarters.
You'll need to wait until after the first set of events in Cragbark to
buy the Pump, since then you'll access Naineneis again.

Head outside and wander around for 10 days. Speak with Balsam in the 4th Floor
Hall.  He will join your group.
---------------------------
Yod joins along with Balsam.
---------------------------
-rc7yd-

---------------------------
Character: Nuzhat   -rc7zt-
Location: Salsabil, Headquarters
Prerequisite: Balsam Recruited.
Description:
Once you've recruited Balsam and have an elevator, take the elevator down to
the Cellar. The Hero makes a comment about the area being empty. Put Mubal,
he's an automatic recruit you should have gotten earlier, into your party
and head to Salsabil. Enter the Residence and speak with the woman in purple
to the east.  Watch a scene. You'll see why the trip to the Cellar was
necessary.

If you tell her yes during the cutscene, you'll be forced into a battle with
a Blaze Dragon.  It's strong to pierce but weak to Slash, so the Hero should
do a good amount of damage Dual-Wielding Swords on it.  Masterpiece should
break 700 damage on it! You can put it to sleep with Sleep Freeze, but it
shouldn't be necessary. 

The Dragon mostly uses a breath attack that does around 20 damage to everyone.
Not too bad, at this point. He only has around 3,000 HP, so you should finish
him off after a few rounds. 

After beating her Monster, she joins your army.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Rekareka -rc7rr-
Location: Naineneis, Headquarters
Prerequisite: None
Description: 
Speak with Rekareka in the Naineneis trading post once you have completed the
first set of events in Cragback, where you're kicked out. The duo will leave
Naineneis. When you head back to your Headquarters, you'll notice the Leader
Quest "Make My Son a Man" is now available.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Make My Son a Man
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Rekareka
Reward: 100 Potch
Type: Leader

Description:
if you can make the Porpos open up to humans, you can do anything. Would you
help me turn my son into a full-fledged Merchant? Signed, Rekareka.
Information:
- Get the details from Rekareka.
- Meet at 2nd Floor Residence.

Head into your tavern and take the upper western exit, by Semias, into the
2nd Floor Residence. Rekareka is up the stairs to the east.  Speak with her

bodyguards we talked about. They don't need business sense, just brawn.
Signed, Rekareka.
Information:
- Help Tuhululu get some stock in.
- Needs somebody brawny. 

Though the game says you need someone Brawny, it seems like pretty much any
character works to finish this Quest. 
---------------------------------------------------

After finishing the quests, Rekareka joins your army.
---------------------------
Tuhululu joins along with Rekareka.

-rc7tt-

---------------------------
Character: Nakil    -rc7kl-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Hafin Recruited.
Description: 
Once you've completed the first set of events in Cragbark where you're kicked
out, put Asad in your party. Leave HQ by walking and then enter it for a scene
with Asad and Moana. If it doesn't trigger, exit, walk for a few days, and
re-enter.  There may be a season requirement of Flower to trigger this scene,
but it's more likely that you can get it at any time by chance.  Just keep
exiting, travelling, and entering in order to trigger it.

Asad will leave your group for a few days.  Head outside and wander around
for a while, probably over two months/seasons in game time, and when you
return to Headquarters, this scene will randomly trigger.  You may have some
problems getting this scene at first, so just keep walking around for a week
or so at a time and then heading back to the Headquarters.

If you recruit Hafin before Nakil, Nakil will appear later.  If you recruit
Nakil first, Hafin will appear later.  The recruitment requirements switch,
but you'll be able to do both if you know how.  I have put Hafin being
recruited first, as you can get him the earlier of the two, but you can also
get Nakil in the same way, but later on in the game. 
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Numnu    -rc7nu-
Location: Naineneis
Prerequisite: Possibly having completed the Quest "Order Approaches Naineneis."
Description:
Once you've finished the first events at Cragbark, enter Naineneis and choose
to go to the "Entry."  Watch a scene with a pink Popos here. Once you've seen
this scene, head back to your Headquarters and get the Quest "Porpos Abducted"
from Moana.

A possible requirement for this Quest is having completed the quest "Order
Approaches Naineneis" after the completion of the Coastal Cave.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Porpos Abducted
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Woman
Reward: Trident
Type: Leader
Rank: 2
Description:
In Naineneis, I heard a Porpos was abducted by Lonomakua pirates!  I bet they
plan to sell this Porpos off.  Please do something! Signed, Passing Through.
Information:
- Go rescue the abducted Porpos?
- Go to Naineneis.

After a few scenes, you're forced into a battle with Xebec, Dromon, and
Felecca.  The Pirates are pretty fast characters and may act before you. Stick
to targeting one, probably Dromon since he's the strongest, and getting rid of
them one at a time.  Xebec and Felecca hit for around 40 damage each while
Dromon can break 80. Damage piles up quickly.  Go after Felecca next, since she
heals herself and the others for 500 HP.

This can actually be a somewhat challenging battle if you come in unprepared
and not expecting it.  You just have to strike hard and fast, or you'll take
a good amount of damage.
---------------------------------------------------

Watch a scene. Numnu joins you.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Dromon   -rc7dr-
Location: Coastal Cave, Resvisited
Prerequisite: Numnu Recruited.
Description:
Once you've finished the events with Numnu and the "Porpos Abducted" Quest,
you can recruit the three pirates.

Heads to Coastal Cave and go straight until you reach the set of geysers. 
Take the central geyser up to the upper level and continue until you reach
the intersection.  Go west and follow the path.  Open the chest for the
EXTREMELY important Godspeed Talisman. Head back to the intersection and
head straight.  Follow this path until you reach the end and open the chest
for a LAZULI SPEAR. Head all the way back and drop down the geyser.  You'll
see that you were actually on the third level!  Back on the second level,
head straight until you reach a path to the west.  Take it and follow it
all the way to the end.

You'll encounter the Pirates once again. Speak with Dromon in here and
watch a scene.

The battle is exactly the same as before.  Once again, attack Dromon first
because of his strong attack, followed by Felecca. If you're doing this battle
around level 30, expect to take damage quickly.  You'll definitely want to
bring a healer for these fights.

After the battle, you recruit the three.
---------------------------
Xebec and Felecca join along with Dromon.
---------------------------
-rc7xb-   -rc7fl-

---------------------------
Character: Gorno    -rc7gr-
Location: Mount Svatgol
Prerequisite: Balsam Recruited. Muro recruited.
Description:
This is going to be a fun little adventure at this level.  Unless you're
up for a challenge, I'd suggest waiting a bit on this, though it is entirely
possible to do it at around level 30.

With Muro in your party, head into Grayridge Mines.  Take the elevator, which
Baslam was working on before, down the the "Lowest Level."  This leads to a
new area.

Trying to recruit Gorno at this stage of the game is quite dangerous, since
you have to wander into Mount Svatgol underlevelled.  I suggest that before
attempting to bring Muro, especially if you never use him, you bring a party
you're confident with to level them up a bit in the Mountain. The enemies hit
very hard around level 30-35, even with the best gear, so you'll definitely
want to bring a Healer. Manaril is nice, since she can also put enemies to
sleep with her magic, but she doesn't have the ability to revive.  It's your
choice. You'll also want Gadburg as your support, so you can put the
strong, mini-boss monsters to sleep and then kill them with Spark. 

If you don't want to risk this quest so early on, you can always wait until
later in the game when Mount Svatgol is actually a required place to go.

~~~                           Mount Svatgol                                 ~~~
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
                                                                        
Characters: Gorno
Items: Uncut Emerald, Emerald Ring, Moonlight Sword, Spun Silvr Armr
Key Items: None
Enemies - Grayridge Mines, Lowest Level: Fanged Silkmoth, Winged Crab
Enemies: Volcano Baboon, Svat Scorpion, Flame Ifrit, Volcano Turtle,
Magma Balloon, Anemone Worm
Area Boss/Grayridge Mines - Flower: Fanged Silkmoth
Boss: None

Getting to Mount Svatgol is the problem at this point.  You need to get there,
with Muro, in one piece.  Much easier said than done.  Before beginning the
quest to get this character, I HIGHLY suggest you prepare yourself well.
If you go in expecting to do you'll probably do better.

During your trip through the lower levels of Grayridge mines, you'll likely
encounter some rough monsters called the Fanged Silkmoth and Winged Crabs.
Winged Crabs hit hard, but aren't particularly dangerous because they use
signle target attacks.  Fanged Silkmoths, however, are capable of wiping out
a low level party.  They're particularly nasty because their area attack does
150 damage to everyone, as well as causing the sleep Status effect.  I would
suggest running when you encounter a Silkmoth for now.

When you start the lower level, head all the way east and take the east
path at the intersection.  Head down the ladder to the next screen.  Follow
the path to the dead end and open the chest for an UNCUT EMERALD. There's
also a secret passage in the side of this room.  press against the wall that
has light coming through it and open the chest in the secret room for an
EMERALD RING. Head back to the main area and go back to the previous floor.

At the lift, take the western path this time. Go south through two
intersections and follow the path to the end.  There's a MOONLIGHT SWORD at
the end of this path.  Head back north to the intersection and take the
western path and head south at the next intersection.  You should be in a
greenish-yellow area at this point.  When you encounter the next intersection,
to the east, follow the path all the way to east.  The path eventually tilts
south. At the dead end, press against the eastern wall to find a hidden
passage and a chest that contains some SPUN SILVR ARMR.  

Follow the path back north and west back to the intersection and this time
take the southern path. Follow it to the end and go down the ladder.

Now just follow this path all the way east.  The path soon turns red, which
shows that you're where you want to be.

You FINALLY reach the Mountain when you go up the ladder.

Please note that if you do go through this section early, you'll easily
gain 4-5 levels in one fight and probably hit level 40 very, very quickly.
Once you've gotten beyond 40, you should be "okay" for surviving.  Have fun
with the Flame Ifrits, though.  They're weak to Slash so Chrodechild and the
Hero dual wielding do well, but they're going to be rather rough. They hit for
around 200 damage per physical attack, and they're fast.  Your best bet it
to try and put it to sleep with a character who has Sleep Freeze and then
Wipe them out with the Spark party command from Gadburg.

Head north and east until you hit the first intersection.  If you're early in
the game, you won't be able to pass the eastern intersection, so just head
south.

With Muro in your group, Gorno will join your army.

. . .And you still have to walk back out. 

Any Uncut Rubies you get from here can be sold in Salsabil for 6,000 Potch.

The first chance you have to recruit Autar is right after Diulf and co. join
your army.  Though you might have done so on your first visit, speak with
Autar in the Cragbark Town Square. He's near the back of the area.

Once you've spoken with him, accept the Quest "Gather Animals!"

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Gather Animals!
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Autar
Reward: 5,000 Potch, Pekklar Meat
Type: Party
Dispatch: 15 Days
Rank: 3
Description:
The Order might attack again, so we should go gather animals for food while we
can.  But the warriors are all busy, and we kids can't go.  Could you send
somebody for me?
Information:
- Gather Animals at Marsinah Plains.
- Need somebody agile and luck.

This quest can only be activated once you've come to an alliance with the
Furious Roar.  After speaking with Autar in Cragbark this opens up.

To clear this quest, you must have characters with a Speed/Agility Stat of
at least 80 and the same with a Luck Stat (Speed and Luck at 80+).

Just level a few characters to 20+, easily done at the Ch'olui Mountains and
Marsinah Plains, and you should be fine.  A decently levelled Marica works
without adding gear, and Neira and Nemne work fine with the stats that they 
begins with. Decently levelled Minen, Liu, Zenoa, Jale and Sisuca work, too.
Nimni has high luck but low Speed.  If a character has close-but-not-quite
luck buy him a Gold Helm.  Sapphire Rings, which you can buy from your
Accessory shop, run by Gorno, are good for a cheap 20 Speed/Agility, too.

You need to fill all of the slots with 80+ Luck/Speed characters. 
---------------------------------------------------

Once the quest is completed, head out to Cragbark Town Square and speak with
Autar again.

Cragbark, side. Circle around the village and head north up the "road."
At the three-way split in the road, watch a scene. 

You encounter this boss with Lycia alone. You don't have to win, just fight
her and watch the scene after. Head back to Cragbark and enter the "Hse of the
King." Watch a scene and Chein joins you
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Ouragan  -rc8og-

Prerequisite: Morrin and Icas Recruited.
Description:
Once you have access to Naineneis again, when you enter it you'll see a scene
with an "Assassin."  The assassin has a part in the Morrin recruitment events,
so you must have Icas and Morrin recruited in order to ally with him. Once
you've seen the scene with him, go to your Headquarters for another scene.

Once you've finished the second set of events with the Furious Roar and
Cragbark is again open to you, head to the General Store for another scene
with the mysterious assassin.

Once you've completed the first set of events in Pharamond, exit your
Headquarters and re-enter them for the final scene where Ouragan joins your

the east on the first screen.  Watch a scene and then speak with her a second
time. Allow Chrodechild to go speak with Yula and a battle begins.

You only use Chrodechild during the battle, so make sure she's decently geared
before trying to win.  Use True Falcon, the 100 MP Mark, and you should kill
Yula in one hit.  If not, just attack her again and she'll fall.  If you
don't have True Falcon equipped for some strange reason, try to Paralyze her
and stick with normal physical attacks.

time, about 2/3 of the screen, and a scene plays. When you regain control,
keep heading east.  Another scene should automatically play.

the events with Rajim joining your army. 

You can just send whoever you wish on this quest.  It doesn't seem to matter.

Alternatively, you can also do "Atrie's World."  Both work as a way to
activate the scene to recruit this character.

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

Xebec.  Dromon mentions academy and the Hero has a conversation with Xebec.
If it doesn't trigger at first, try speaking with Xebec another time. If it
still doesn't, you've probably already spoken with him and gotten the
conversation. The conversation you want mentions Lonomakua Academy.
If you're having trouble finding the pirates in your Headquarters, they're in
the Trading Post, which is just north of the Plaza.

Head over to Moana and accept your next Quest.

Maybelle may also be required to begin this Quest, since she is mentioned in

Character: Savina   -rc8sv-
Location: Pharamond
Prerequisite: Icas recruited.

Head to the Ch'olui Mountains and climb to the very top.  That's west at the
first intersection, east at the second two, and head northwest on the second
screen until you reach the peak.  Once you hit the peak, hug the southwestern
wall and go down the rope.

You'll be in the Marsinah Plains.  Enter the ruins just to the south for a
short scene.  Now head all the way back to your Headquarters, by walking back
across the Mountains and accept Moana's quest, "The Return of Megion."

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: The Return of Megion
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Tigre
Reward: Wtr Drgn Claws
Type: Leader
Rank: 3
Description:
Messengers from Megion have arrigves here in Cragbark.  Could you please ask
King Diul if he would return? Signed, Tigre.
Information:
- Meet with Megion's Messengers.
- Go to Cragbark.

Watch the scenes in Cragbark and then go back to the Ch'olui Mountain peak.
Exit into the plains through the peak and enter the Mysterious Ruins.

Follow the path south until you hit the intersection, where you should
continue south.  At the next intersection, head west and open the chest up
the path to the north for a LAZULI ROD. Head back east and north to the
first intersection, then take the western path. Head north at the next split
and open the chest at the end for some MYSTIC MEDICINE. Head back south and
go west at the intersection.  At the next one, head north and follow this
path west and south to trigger the scene.

Diulf, Servillah, and Lycia are required to fight against the trio.  They
don't have to win, and the next battle is with Megion and your group. Megion
has surprisingly high physical defense and also uses Rage on himself, which
raises his attack power.  He has around 4,000 HP.
---------------------------------------------------
After the scenes, the trio joins you.
---------------------------
Eusmil and Nictis join along with Megion.
---------------------------
-rc8el-    -rc8nt-

Character: Namna    -rc81n-
Location: Headquarters
Prerequisite: Must see his visits in Sprout and Bud Seasons.
Description:
There are two chances to recruit Namna.

Namna is a bit touchy.  First, you must wander around until Sprout season
and then enter the Porpos-Kin room. The room is found on the third floor
hallway of the Headquarters by taking the western exit. You'll find him
speaking with Neira, who is an automatic recruit.  After the first scene with
him, you must actually speak with him.  He's the green Porpos in the room,
the one standing next to Neira. You'll find him in Bud Season, this time. 

Once you've finished the events where you recover the three Chronicles, 
you can trigger the next scene with Namna.  Once again, wait until Bud
Season and then enter Neira's room. Speak with him and ask him to join. He'll
decline for now.  It is possible to recruit him at this point, but it won't
always work if you didn't speak with him early.

What you can try to do is head into the Grand Hall and watch the first scene
there.

If you don't get Namna after the first events, there is a second chance to
get him later on that is a bit easier and less touchy.  I'd suggest waiting
until then, personally, when the recruitment isn't so touchy.

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

After finishing up the quest in Naineneis, head to Cragbark.  Enter the Town
Square for the last scene. 

You have to fight two Pekklars, but you have the advantage that all of your
characters are given Rage status, which increases your attack.  I'd suggest
focusing on one of them, as they do have around 1,800 HP, but they're rather
normal enemies. Ramin joins you.

Information:
- Help them dig up the Mage City
- Needs somebody strong

You need characters with high Total Attack Power (Base Attack+Weapon Attack)
for this quest. Two whole teams of them! Anything above 125 should work for
all of your characters.  If you don't have 8 characters with 125 attack,
give them the best weapons and accessories you can.  Some accessories add
30 Strength, which should easily push some characters over the tier.  If
you still don't for some strange reason, send them into a battle or two in the
Desert, which will bring their level up very quickly.

Note that everyone, no matter their strength, will be enthusiastic about this
quest, but that doesn't mean they will all be able to complete it properly.
---------------------------------------------------
After you finish the quest, head back to the Academy again with Shams and
Manaril and you'll recruit Nofret.

available, "Defend Grayridge."

Be warned, you absolutely must be successful in this Quest or you won't 
recruit him at this point.  This Quest doesn't reappear again like other
quests. You will receive a different quest later in the game if you fail this

attack, I'm afraid I'm not sure we have the manpower to fend them off.
Request for assistance.
Information:
- Defend Grayridge
- Stop the Sand creatures

You need three full parties of high-strength characters.  This one's a bit
deceiving since some characters will be enthusiastic even if they don't have
the required amount of strength.  Each and every character needs 110 total
attack power, equipment power+base strength, so give them all strong weapons
and accessories.
---------------------------------------------------

After successfully completing the quest, head back to Grayridge Chapter hall.
This time you don't need Logan, just speak with Gilliam and he'll join.

Please note that if you do fail Defend Grayridge and are doing the quest
later on, the second quest has a different, and more difficult, set of
requirements, so 110 Total Attack Power won't work.

Prerequisite: Savina Recruited.

Once you've taken Fort Arc, bring Savina there.  If you're entering from the

Namna is a bit touchy.  First, you must wander around until Sprout season
and then enter the Porpos-Kin room. The room is found on the third floor
hallway of the Headquarters by taking the western exit. You'll find him
speaking with Neira, who is an automatic recruit.  After the first scene with
him, you must actually speak with him.  He's the green Porpos in the room,

you can trigger the next scene with Namna.  Once again, wait until Bud
Season and then enter Neira's room. Speak with him and ask him to join. He may
decline for now.

If Namna doesn't join you after the Three Chronicles events, you can always
recruit him later one, so not all hope is lost.

After you've taken Fort Arc, travel until it's Bud Season once again and
speak with Namna.  This time, his dialogue will change and ask him to join.
he will, with a little, er, friendly persuasion.

After you've spoken with Hao-Shi three times and you've entered Rarohenga
once, this quest will appear.

You automatically begin a battle with three Pawns, who are weak to strike and
strong to Pierce.  They're just normal enemies who have around 1,300 HP, so
don't worry too much.

Watch the scenes and you fight a battle with three more of the Pawns. Once
they're dead, kill another three and you're done.
---------------------------------------------------
Hao-Shi joins your army.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Zayin    -r11zn-
Location: Mysterious Ruins - Rarohenga
Prerequisite: Baslam and Yod recruited.
Description:
After the battle in the Crater, you can recruit Zayin.  It may be possible to
recruit him before the events, too.  You must bring Balsam and Yod with you
into Rarohenga and then take a left at the entrance.  At the second
intersection, you must go north to enter to the ruins. The enemies in this
area are dangerously strong, so be very careful.

Once you're in the ruins, continue north.  At the intersection, ignore the
northern path and continue east. At the next intersection, head South and
open the chest for a DARKNESS STONE. Head back and continue east.  Go north
at the next intersection and open the chest for some HELL FISTS.  Head back
and keep going east, ignore the southern intersection, and follow the path a
long way around north and then west.  At the end of the path, examine the
person.

With Balsam and Yod in your party, you can recruit Zayin.
---------------------------

---------------------------
Character: Kow-Low  -r11kl-
Location: Woodland Village, Rarohenga
Prerequisite: None
Description:
After clearing the events in the Crater of Rarohenga you can finally recruit
this character.  You may have spoken to him earlier in the game, but you can't
recruit him until the very end.

Enter the Woodland Village and the choose the "Path."  On the far left of the
path is a Scribe you should speak with.  Both the Hero and Liu give different
scenes you speak with him, one with and one without Liu, so try both.

When you head back to Headquarters, a new Quest pops up.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Find Somebody in Rarohenga
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Scribe Female
Reward: . . .30,000 Potch?
Type: Leader
Rank: 1
Description:
One of the Scribes left the woods and hasn't returned.  We think he went to
that fearful place you call Rarohenga.  Do you think you could find him and
bring him back?
Information:
- Conduct a manhunt
- One of the Scribes
- In Rarohenga

This quest only becomes available after you've spoken with Kow-Low in the
Woodland Village and after you've cleared the events in the Crater of
Rarohenga, just entering Rarohenga isn't enough.

Exit the Castle and enter Rarohenga.  Follow the path to the intersection, 
take a left, and then at the next intersection go up.  Enter the Mysterious
Ruins. Watch a scene in here and kill off the set of three Pawns.  They're
normal enemies in Rarohenga, so don't expect anything spectacular from them.

After killing the enemies, the Quest is complete.
---------------------------------------------------

Follow the path north and east and go east at the first two intersections.
Watch a scene and fight two more Pawns.  These ones are a good deal stronger
that the other ones, with higher HP and physical attack power, but you'll still
kill them easily. Kow-Low joins your army. 
---------------------------
Rufa joins along with Kow-Low.

Character: Enumclaw -r11ec-
Location: Noslaw Forest
Prerequisite: Having completed the Quests "Get Rid of Citro Monster" and "Get
Rid of Mislato Monster."
Description:
Throughout the game you'll be given quests that require you to kill a monster.
There are three total, "Get Rid of Mislato Monster," and "Get rid of
Citro Monster" are two of the quests required to recruit this character.  After
you've completed those, a third quest will appear once you've finished the
events in the Rarohenga Crater.  Just entering Rarohenga isn't enough.

---------------------------------------------------
Recruitment Quest: Get Rid of Woodland Monster
---------------------------------------------------
Client: Scribe Girl
Reward: 50,000 Potch, Death Helm
Type: Leader
Rank: 4
Description:

ask humans for help, but I can't stand it anymore!  Signed, Scribe Girl.
Information:
- Monster Hunting
- An Unidentified black monster
- Go to the Noslaw Woods

After the events in Rarohenga and after completing "Get Rid of Citro Monster!"
And "Get Rid of Mislato Monster!" this quest shows up.  Watch the scenes and
you're forced into battle with a Formless Demon.  It's rather slow and has
low defense, but its HP and attack power are surprisingly high.  Expect attacks
that hit for around 150 damage. It seems to have over 5,000 HP, so just keep
attacking and using your moster powerful attacks, such as Two-Way Thrust, and
it will fall.  It doesn't have any extremely dangerous attacks, just normal
moves.

After the monster is dead, watch the scenes.  Enumclaw joins you.

This Quest section is still in heavy progress.

Missions are not included in this section, as they're covered in the main
walkthrough.

What's the difference between a Quest, Mission, Party, and Leader Quest?
Well, a Mission is a required event through the storyline.  Only three
Quests throughout the game are actually required.

Quests are usually optional and they come in two forms: Party and Leader.
Leader quests involve the Main Character himself, be it through a scene or a
battle.
Party Quests do not involve the main character and also require you to
"dispatch" characters for a certain number of days. Some of these quests
require certain characters to be sent and others require every character sent
to have a specific stat beyond a certain point.

---------------------------------------------------
Quest: Sorry to Keep Bugging you!           -lqskb-
Client: Marica?
Reward: 50,000 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 2
Description:
I saw another Renegare go from my world to yours!  I'm coming over to take
care of it.  Do you think you could fight with me?
Information:
- Renegade Hunting.
- Wants Hero to go, too.

After completing the Quest "Order Approaches Naineneis" you can do this quest.
You may need to do a Quest or a storyline mission in-between to start this.
This is a very easy quest, just kill the, very weak, monster with your group.
---------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------
Quest: Something For You                    -lqsfy-
Client: Atrie
Reward: God-Beast Sword, Crescent Axe
Type: Leader
Rank: 5
Description:
Hero, I've got something I want to give you.  Will you accept it? But I guess
you won't know until you see it, right? Can I come over?
Information:
- Atrie has a gift?
- Meet in person to get the details.

To begin this quest, you must have recruited Nuzhat.  Speak with Nuzhut to
being the battle.  Atrie joins you as your fourth member during this fight.
he comes at level 30 and has a Cooperative Attack with the Hero called
"Double Leaders." use it every round, since it does around 1,500 damage!
You can sleep the boss with Sleep Freeze, so use that, too, to avoid damage.
With Atrie and the Hero using Double Leaders every round, the boss really
shouldn't last more than than three rounds.  You can probably do it in two
if the other characters with you are strong.

The Quest is complete when you beat the Dragon.
---------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------
Quest: Order Soldiers in the Plains         -lqosp-
Client: Tigre
Reward: 50,000 Potch
Type: Leader
Rank: 3
Description:
The Order is prowling northern Marsinah Plains. Attack doesn't seem imminent,
but we'd like King Diulf's judgement.  Could you please ask His Highness to
return?
Information:
- Order soldiers are prowling around the Marsinah Plains.
- Find out the enemy's intention.
- Go to Cragbark.

This quest first becomes available after the first set of events in Pharamond.
Chein and Ouragan may also be requirements to do this quest. Watch the scenes.
You're forced into an encounter with three Cynas Conscripts. You're not
required to use the group of companions that you were forced to bring with
you, which may be a good thing for you. The Conscripts are quite strong and
do around 60-70 damage with their attacks while also taking a minimal amount
of damage, but a strong party should have no problem with them. 

Follow the screen north and at the intersection of the second screen watch
a scene. This time you fight with a Cynas Conscript and two Cynas Archers.
This one's a bit easier than the last one because the Archers don't like to
defend themselves constantly. With no break in-between you're forced into an
encounter with a Cynas Captain, Cynas Mage, and a Cynas Archer.  If you
have any ranged attackers, have them focus on the Mage, since the Captains
are rather resilitant with their constant defending.

That finishes the quest.
---------------------------------------------------

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

You lot can make yourselves useful by polishing up the Tablet of Promise.
Spotless, you hear?  I wanna be able to see my reflection in it.  And you can

Quest: Furious Roar Goods                   -pqfrg-
Client: Tuhululu

Dispatch: 35 Days
Rank: 3

for a good price.  Would that be okay?  My mom can't leave the shop, but I can
go in her place.
Information:
- Find new trade goods.
- Around Cragbark

After the second events in Cragbark, the Furious Roar goods Quest becomes
available.  You must have Tuhululu to trigger this quest.

Send Hotupa alone in the second team and fill the first team, Tuhululu's,
with a group of three characters that have over 100 Luck. The second group
only needs Hotupa so you'll only need characters with high luck in Tuhululu's
group.  Sisuca and Marica are decent characters with high luck early on.
Nakil, if he's recruited, or Lathilda work well, too.  You may want to wait
until level 30 or 40 to do this quest when higher luck characters are
available.  You should also have a wider variety of luck equipment once you
have access to the shops in Pharamond, including a Treasured Sword and a
Noble's Cape.
---------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------
Quest: Astrasian Goods                      -pqasg-
Client: Tuhululu
Reward: 3,000 Potch
Type: Party

Rank: 4
Description:
Um. . .I want to go see if Astrasia has any trade goods we can sell for a
good price.  would that be okay?  My mom can't leave the shop, but I can go in
her place.
Information:
- Find New Trade Goods
- In Astrasia

Once you've completed the events in Astrasia this quest opens up.  You do
not need to complete "Furious Roar Goods" to unlock it. Tuhululu must also
be recruited.

In Tuhululu's team, add characters with more than 120-125 luck.  Since
you should have access to Astrasia when this quest appears, buy some Treasured
Swords and Nobles Boots from there to help raise your luck.  Noble's Capes
raise your luck by 20 points and Treasured Swords by 30.

In the second team, send Hotupa alone. 
---------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------
Quest: Lugenik Goods                        -pqlgg-
Client: Tuhululu
Reward: 3,000 Potch, Netherlion Horn
Type: Party
Dispatch: 40 Days

price.  Would that be okay?  My mom can't leave the shop, but I can go in
her place.

- Around Lugenik

Once you've completed the events in Lugenik this quest becomes available.  It
is not required for you to complete the other "Goods" quests before this,
though Tuhululu is required to begin.

In Tuhululu's party, you need characters with more than 145 Luck.  Sisuca,
Amaralicht, Nakil, Hina, and Lathilda at high levels work well for this.  Buy
some luck gear, Noble's Cape and Treasured Swords, from Pharamond to help
boost up the rest of your characters.

Send Hotupa alone in the second party.

Though it's said that 150 is the luck requirement, I was able to succeed with
a character at 148 and 149 Luck, so I believe the requirement is actually 140
or 145 Luck.
---------------------------------------------------

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

Client: Yovel
Reward: 50,000 Potch, Fish Guts, Whale Tusk, Prismatic Peach

- Go to another world
- Squidcreepers live in the sea

After you've recruited Yovel, Morrin and Balsam, Numhu, and Autar, and
completed the first quest, "I can't get my Mask off!" this one becomes
available. The three pirates, Dromon, Xebec, and Felecca will get this quest
done for you. 

Completing this quest opens up the next quest, "Find the Sticky Criminal!"
---------------------------------------------------

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

Client: Moana
Reward: 5,000 Potch

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

---------------------------------------------------
Quest: Flush Out the Criminal!              -pqflh-
Client: Moana
Reward: 5,000 Potch
Type: Party
Dispatch: 5 Days
Rank: 2
Description:
The person that took the adhesive from Balsam'd research room was apparently
smaller than Yod.  Pretty good lead, I'd say.  That should narrow down the
suspects.
Information:
- Conduct a manhunt for the culprit who glued the mask on Yovel?
- The culprit is smaller than Yod?

After completing the three quests before this, "I Can't Get my Mask off!,"
"Seek the Squidcreeper Sap," and "Find the Sticky Criminal!," this is unlocked.
Send Luvais alone and he'll get the quest done for you.
---------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------
Quest: Help Them Dig Again                  -pqhda-
Client: Nofret
Reward: 30,000 Potch, Uncut Topaz
Type: Party
Dispatch: 30 Days
Rank: 3
Description:
Got a message from my men back in the Mage City.  They found some spots that
look really promising.  Can I borrow a few hands?  I'm going too, of course.
Information:
- Help them dig up the Mage City
- Around Lugenik

Once you've recruited Nofret this quest becomes available. 

You need to send 3 people along with Nofret who have 150 Total Attack Power
and 150 Luck. Sisuca is an excellent choice for this, as is a levelled
Lathilda with a Treasured Sword, from Pharamond. Nictis, if he's around level
47, works well too. Give a decently geared Marica a Treasured Sword and an
accessory that raises her attack, such as a Strength Sash, Adept's Shoes,
or a Ruby Ring to raise her strength and you'll be fine.

Hina has the Luck, but lacks the Strength Stat unless you equip her with
Endless Travels or a Broom. Equip any dual-wielder who can equip Swords and
has decent luck, as in anyone but Chrodechild - she has terrible luck, with
two Treasured Swords and a Noble's Cape, which adds a total of 80 points and
you should be able to clear this easily. Luvais, if decently levelled, with a
Noble's Cape shoould also work. 

The problem with this Quest is that you need to level Nofret up, too.  You
can have three characters with 150 in both stats, but if Nofret is level 12,
you're going to fail. Around level 40 she'll hit 150 Luck if she has a
Treasured Sword, but she'll be lacking in the Strength Department.  Give her
an accessory that raises strength to balance her out.
---------------------------------------------------

to worry! I'll be sure to bring them back when the time is up!

Just make sure everyone is enthusastic when you send them out. It's an easy

This quest becomes available once you've recruited Enumclaw.

160 Total Attack Power seems to be the requirement for this Quest with Luck,
Skill or Speed not included.  Characters with 157 and 158 won't succeed, but
characters with 161 will.  Just look for their reactions and make sure they
are confident before sending them.

Though you succeed at this Quest, it will show up another time. You can
tell you succeeded though, since it's on your Completed Quest List, as well
as receiving a positive review from Enumclaw.

Darrow.  We should at least try to find out if he's still alive!  Anything to
ease Savina's mind. . .
Information:
- Try to get news of Darrow.
- Anything at all would help.

You can only do this quest after recruiting Savina and Anya.

This one's a bit iffy on the requirements.  You can easily complete it by
just sending Luvais, but the game seems to have another set of recruirements
that will allow for success without Luvais.  For example, some characters
react to this quest positively and others negatively.  If the quest wasn't
possible by other characters, they wouldn't have different reactions.

However, for an easy clear just send Luvais.  This one is one of the few
Anya quests you can fail, which is why it's in the Party Section over Anya's
section.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-qssay-
Once you've recruited Anya, she'll give you quests periodically about your
recruited characters.  Because Suikoden Tierkreis doesn't have a detective,
Anya's results act as a way to get to know your characters a bit.  Her
Quests are mostly impossible to fail and only give a reward of 1,000 Potch.

Minen's Background will generally be the most problematic of her Quest set.

This section is currrently In-Progress.

Anya's Quest List:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Minen's Background             -aqmnb-
Sisuca and Nemne               -aqssn-
Chancellor's Age               -aqcha-

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

---------------------------------------------------
Quest: Minen's Background                   -aqmnb-
Client: Anya
Reward: 1,000 Potch
Type: Party
Dispatch: 1 Day
Rank: 1
Description:
I wonder why Minen looked into Fierce Regalia for us and not Geschutz? She has
connections, maybe?   I can't go into Ritterschild to find out, so I'll ask
around the castle.
Information:
- Find out about Minen's connections

After completing Minen's party quest "About Fierce Regalia," this quest will
appear.  Only characters with extremely high luck need apply, since you need
170 on everyone! You'll probably need to wait until very late in the game to
complete this quest, since most of your characters will need to be around
level 50 to even approach 170 Luck. 

Through accessories, Luck is a pretty nasty stat to Raise.   Gold Helms will
net you 6 points. Some Hammers, such as the Great Hammer, add 5. Because
you're limited in gear choices, you have to stick with characters who can
naturally hit 160+.  The Noble's Cape give you 20 points, too, and you can
get those from Pharamond. The only truly "Fast" way to raise your luck is
through Treasured Swords, also from Pharamond, which add 30 points to your
luck.  If a character can dual wield, even someone with low luck and high
levels, such as Fredegund, can complete the quest.

The Hero works, but you can't send him.
Amaralicht hits 160 at around level 50.
Sisuca hits 160 around level 45 and 170 around 48.
Nictis hits 160 around level 55.
Marica, too, hits it, but she will a bit later than the others, but she
can equip a Treasured Sword to make her journey a bit easier.
Autar, Hina, and Nakil are also possiblities.

A general rule of thumb when levelling is that if they don't hit 100 Luck by
level 30, they'll be out of the question for fast levelling during this quest.
---------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------
Quest: Sisuca and Nemne                     -aqssn-
Client: Anya

Rank: 1
Description:
Did you know that Sisuca and Nemne are sometimes seen going off together?
Hmm. . .I want to know, but I kinda don't want to know. I guess I'll check it
out, though.
Information:
- Check out Sisuca and Nemne.
- Find out about their mysterious behaviour.

Just send Anya on the Quest.  Obviously, to do this quest you need both
Sisuca, a recruited character, and Nemne, an automatic character, in your
army. The earliest time to do this quest seems to be after the events where
the Headquarters expand.   It doesn't seem to matter who you send, as this
is an information Quest and only Anya is necessary.

                         --- Marks of the Stars ---

===============================================================================
-mosgi-
This section is meant as a list to each Mark of the Stars ability. 

The first thing you'll notice is that most Physical and Magical skills have
three "Tiers" to them. For example, Heavy Tremor, Crush Quake, and Earthspasm.
All of the skills are similar, but the strength increases with each level.

In this section I have attempted to list all Marks and the characters that
can use them.

Quick Navigation:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-mospm-
Physical Marks of the Stars are Marks that are Total Attack Power based. They
generally say "Physical Attack" or "Physical Damage."

When an attack says "###%" Physical Damage, it is signifying the damage when
compared to a character's normal physical attacks.  For example, if a normal
physical attack will hit for 700 on a Monster, then an attack that does "200%
Physical Damage" will do 1,400.

---                             Magical Marks                               ---
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-mosmm-
Unlike Physical Marks, Magical Marks have different elements to them and are
based off of Total Magical Attack Power, rather than Physical.

Magical damage comes in two elements, Fire and Water.  Lightning based attacks
cause Paralysis, Wind based attacks cause Silence, and Ice based attacks cause
Sleep.

There are also Magical Marks that heal your character's HP or staus effects.
Finally, there are support Marks that act as spells to increase an attribute,
such as defense or attack. 

Generally, when it comes to Magic if a status spell is of higher "tier,"
for example Silence Grit and Silence Dust, the higher tier, in this case it's
Dust, will do more damage.

Thank you for reading my Suikoden Tierkreis Guide. I hope it was helpful to
you!  As of now, this guide is nowhere near the level of completion that I'd
like it to be, but because of demand, I find that I am forced to post it
early in its development. 

To be done:
Finish Quests Section
Proofread/Complete Rewrite of Main Walkthrough
Cooperative Attacks Section?
Basic Character information section?

If you're interested in using my guide on your site, everything in the
original version, found on GameFAQs, must remain intact and all credit must be
given to the original author, "Cyril" or Stephanie Nutter. 

If you're a reader and wish to contact the author of this guide, Unfortunately
I no longer give my EMail in my guides due to a busy schedule in real life.
I apologize for this inconvenience.
