<><> OVERVIEW <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

"Echoes of Time", another hack-and-slash type game in the FF Crystal Chronicles
series, after "Ring of Fates". Same as its predecessor, you can control your
character in 3D environment, killing monsters, casting magics, solving puzzles,
etc. Some improvements have been made in this series, especially in terms of
gaming controls and AI settings. Yeah, those two are really pain in the ass in
RoF... I even feel that Larkeicus is a lot easier than Pope Galdes... lol

So, what's inside this guide? Well, in the status screen on the game you can see
4 main options ("Status", "Chronicles", "Items", "Scratch Cards") and a "Flee
Area" button. This guide refers to the script in the "Chronicles" option. It
basically a record of your journey and adventure while you progress in the game.
If you're enjoying your time too much on leveling up somewhere until you forget
where to go or what to do next, then just try to check out the "Chronicles". It
mentions the event that has just been done and the one next to be done. Well, if
you're using a guide such as this one or other walkthrough-type guide, you'll
probably won't need to pay attention to them though... just follow the guide.
As far as I know, this game has only one storyline, so there's no "alternate
ending" or such. However, the order of the chronicles that written could be
different at some parts, based on the order of gameplay on a certain locations.
The numbers on the right refer to the page number (1-35) on the "Chronicles".

Enjoy!

I got a strange device from Veriaulde,
the immortal Yuke.
He says it has the power to find crystals.
Now I can search for the fragments of the

In a dark corner of the aqueducts, I fought        < After going to the
