Introduction =============== God Medicine (Super Gameboy Version) Produced by: Konami (KCE Nagoya) Year: 1998 System: Gameboy Time Needed to Complete Game: 15-20 hours Difficulty Level: Easy to Moderate God Medicine is a traditional RPG for the gameboy handheld system. Originally released before 1998 for the gameboy, Konami decided in 1997/1998 to release an updated version of the game that's compatible with the Super Gameboy addon for the Super Nintendo console. Also new in the updated version is the Yamima File, which is a bestiary of that tracks the data on all monster types you've fought. The game follows an interesting premise. A company in the real world is developing an RPG called Phantom. Something mysteriously goes wrong and the company is destroyed. Suddenly a portal appears to the Phantom world from the game, which is discovered by three RPG loving children, Noah, Ken, and Miki. They gain the power of the Heroes' Souls upon the death of the Phantom world's chosen heroes and take it upon themselves to save the Phantom world and the real world from a Demon menace. Version History: 1.01 - The discovery that the Yamima File was added to the SGB version of the game (info courtesy of Gideon Zhi) 1.0 - Initial completed FAQ release *********************************************************************** ============ II. Gameplay ============ The gameplay is traditional RPG fare: D-pad - moves the character and cursors about A button - Examines objects and selects commands B button - Cancel selection, exit menu Select - Pulls up the save menu, you can save anywhere in the game Start - The main menu Main Menu: Item - Allows you to use items Status - Shows the character's stats Magic - Allows you to cast spells Equip - Allows you to equip different weapons and armor Maphu - Equipping maphu gems for special abilities File - To view the Yamima File that records the information on every monster you fight Maphu: During the game, you will acquire special gems (Maphu gems). At first, you won't be able to use them. Once you acquire Maphu weapons, you can equip one Maphu gem on them to gain a special ability (see section V. Maphu Attacks). Each Maphu gem has a different effect based on which person they are equipped on. Maphu attacks have different ways of activating - some are automatic while others require you to charge them up. Those that require charging will show blocks next to the character's face. Each turn that the character takes an action, one of the blocks will fill up. Once full, the Maphu command will appear in the character's battle menu. Some key points: * You can only ever carry up to 9 of a specific item * When you buy new equipment in the shops, it is automatically equipped. However, if you find something new in a dungeon, you have to equip it manually. * All spells cost 1 magic point in that particular magic type. * Characters that get hit with a negative status during battle are automatically cured after a battle. Characters also recover all HP and MP when they gain a level. * Charge up Maphu skills before boss fights, they stay charged as long as you don't use them. *********************************************************************** ================ III. Walkthrough ================ ---------------------------- -A. Pheamone and Thiefglade- ---------------------------- You start out as Noah, Ken, and Miki in their hometown of Kokubu. After getting out of school, walk around town talking to everybody. Once you've spoken to all the people, go down into the bottom area of town and walk around until the group hears a sound and goes to investigate. A series of events will occur and you will end up being taken to Pheamone Kingdom. Pheamone Kingdom ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Armor Shop: Leather Armor Leather Shield Cloth Boots Chain Armor Gauntlet Small Dress Rabbit Bracelet Weapons: Dagger Club Arrow bow Items: Herb Bromide Shippass Go and talk to the king. He will offer you a mission so accept it to get going on your journey. Talk to the old man standing to the side and he will give you your first bit of cash, 250 Kira (Kr). Exit the castle, talk to everyone around town and buy what you can with the Kira the man gave you. This would be a good time to build some levels around town (at least level 4). Once you've built up to a reasonable level, make sure you buy a bromide from the item shop then head north to the tower (ignore the forest and cave you can enter, we'll come back to them much later). North Watch Tower ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Right when you enter, you'll get attacked by a monster (Bashly). Defeat him, then grab the chest to your left for an Herb. Climb up the stairs to the 2nd floor. On the second floor, there's a chest with 50Kr and then stairs up to the third. The chest in the upper, right corner of the floor contains a Telepo. Here you'll also meet the first of a number of monsters throughout the game who is harmless. Speak to it if you want, heal up, then go up to the fourth floor. Boss: Bashly Commander (70HP) Reward: 60 EXP, 100Kr, Aura spell book Attacks with his axe to deal a decent bit of damage to characters. You can use the Bromide now to distract the boss for a few turns. Focus on attacking with Noah/Ken and using Miki to heal and cast Burn (get used to this method of Noah/Ken attacking and Miki as healer, it works for about all boss battles). Use the spell book you just got to teach Noah or Ken the Aura heal spell (I recommend Noah since he's faster and more magically inclined than Ken). Open the chests to gain a Warrior Sword, 6HTonfa, and War Bow (Be sure to equip them). Make your way out of the tower and back to Phaemone Kingdom town. Back in Phaemone, visit the king. The prince of Thiefglade Kingdom, Speekas, will show up and invite you to his kingdom. Nothing else to do here so purchase a Shippass and hop on the ship for Thiefglade. When you gain control of your party on the ship, heal up if you aren't at full health, then talk to everybody on the ship to cause an event. Boss: Captain Gant (120HP) with 2 Pirates (24HP each) Reward: 70 EXP, Fire Cut, Miki learns Crack spell Take out the pirates first as they're an annoyance, then focus on the Captain with your party. If you're high enough in levels, Miki should be faster than him so you can make sure to stay healed. After the battle, you gain your first Maphu gem, Fire Cut (can't use it yet though). The ship will continue sailing and take you into Thiefglade's harbor. Thiefglade Kingdom ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Armor Shop: Leather Armor Leather Shield Leather Boots Chain Armor Hundred Gauntlet Straw Sandals Small Dress Rabbit Bracelet Rabbit Shoes Weapon Shop: Dagger Battle Club Arrow Bow Item Shop: Herb Shakkiri Telepo Once you get off the ship, Prince Speekas will have a few words with you before going away. Wander around talking to people, stocking up on supplies, and buying any new equipment you want. Now enter the castle for scenes with the king and Prince Speekas. The party decides to help out the prince. Talk to the people again who say you need to talk to the Elder to find Muon Tower. Exit town and there's two paths - North and East. Go east and follow it all the way to the end to find a house. Enter it and talk to the Elder who can't hear you it seems. Back to the world map and back to town. Talk to everyone again to learn about the King's odd "hat" then go talk to the King to get his "hat" which turns out to be a Megaphone. Back to the Elder and use the Megaphone and he says use the north cave and a special code needed (the old konami code). Take the path that you saw north of town to a cave (By this time, you should be around level 7 or 8). Enter the cave and follow the path to the end, passing a passage that goes South, to find a treasure chest with 100Kr. Back to the path south we passed, and follow it to an intersection. Right is a Telepo, then go down and follow it to a room with footprints on the ground. Step on them in the proper order to perform the code - Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A. Each time you step on one, a sound will play to let you know whether you stepped on the right one or not (If you step on a wrong tile, you'll have to start over). Once you complete the code, the wall opens and you can exit the cave. Outside of the cave, go a little south to a town. Calm Oasis ~~~~~~~~~~ Armor Shop: Wood Shield Leather Boots Hundred Gauntlet Rabbit Shoes Weapon Shop: Steel Sword Battle Club Eagle Bow Item Shop: Herb Elixir Hilixir Shakkiri Telepo Talk to the townsfolk and you'll hear that the prince came through on his way to Muon Tower and that you have to go through the Calm Forest first to get there. Exit town when you're ready, go south through the mountains, following the trail as it goes east and then north to the Calm Forest. In the Calm Forest, there's 2 paths that eventually wrap around and intersect with each other. Let's go right from here to the end to find a chest with a Buster Sword. Now walk up from where you are and left to the door to Muon Tower. Muon Tower ~~~~~~~~~~ Climb the stairs up until you get to a hallway that you can go up or right. Up is a deadend, so head right. A small event occurs where the characters mention how silent it is. If you encounter Specimens, you can use the Megaphone to kill them instantly. Anyways, continue right. There's nothing in the door there except a monster to talk to if you want. The first stairs you come to lead to a chest with a Blackberry. Climb back up to the hallway and then continue walking up the hallway. A scene with some monsters. Take this second set of stairs down if you want to talk to another monster. Otherwise, follow the hallway to the third set of stairs. Take them down to a room with 2 stairs. The first stairs leads to a chest with a Big Hammer. The second stairs go to another room with 2 staircases. Here, the first stairs leads to an empty room, so once again take the second stairs down. Heal up then examine the door for a scene with Prince Speekas, who joins your party for the moment. Your party enters the door for another scene. Boss: Doctor Drill (500 HP) Rewards: 200 EXP, 150kr, Nayle spell book Doctor Drill uses a punch attack for 12-18 damage. Once you knock his helmet off, use the Megaphone to win the battle instantly. Open the chest in the room for a Blueberry then go through the back door and take the stairs up to exit. Enter the next tunnel and take it to the end where there's a portal back to the real world. Step in the portal then walk down to find a crank. Try to turn it to find you can't, then walk back up and take the ladder out of the sewers. ----------------- -B. Phantom Corp- ----------------- Hidaka Town ~~~~~~~~~~~ Item Shop: Herb Elixir Hilixir Shakkiri Powerhand T-Pass If you walk around talking to people, you'll find out this is where the company making Phantom was located at. They'll also claim the building is haunted and that you can get there through the sewers. Enter the shop in the bottom right of town and talk to the shopkeeper to find out he's a sandman. You can buy items from him. Get a Powerhand from him then reenter the sewers. Use the Powerhand on the crank we looked at earlier. The water will drain. Walk across where the water drained from. Now you'll start getting into monster fights (You should be around level 11 or 12). This is also the first time you'll encounter enemies that do status ailments (poisoning) so be sure to have some Shakkiri on hand. Take the straightforward path until you find an old man. Talk to him then continue down the path to an intersection below where the old man is. Go down to get an Elixir from a chest, then continue right. You'll eventually come to some stairs, so climb them, go over to the other set of stairs and back down into the sewers. Use the Powerhand again to turn the crank here. With all the water drained, you can see spots where you can walk up crossing over the areas that used to have water. Use this path to walk straight up to the very top and through a door. You can see the boss standing there so heal up first. If you need to restock on items, you can exit through the right door to find the ladder leading back up to town. When you're ready, take him on. Boss: Drain Diver (250 HP) Rewards: 400 EXP, 200kr, Furge spell book Drain Diver likes to use his tail to deal some damage and poison your characters at the same time, so you may want to have some Shakkiri on hand. He has strong defense against the crack spell, so use burn. Once you've killed him, walk up to enter the Phantom Building. Phantom Building ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Here in the basement of the Phantom Building, you can go right or up. There's nothing of interest to the right (empty rooms and a broken elevator), so go up and climb the stairs to the first floor. 1st Floor: Nothing of real interest on this floor either. If you want, you can exit the stairwell and go right to the second door to talk to a monster. Otherwise, continue up to the 2nd Floor. 2nd Floor: You can climb the stairs here to the 3rd Floor, but there is a sealed door that needs a card key so you can't make any progress there as of yet. Instead, exit the stairwell here on the 2nd Floor and go right. The first two doors are locked, but you can enter the third. Read the notice on the wall to learn about a key, then search the desk at the the top-right next to the file cabinets to get the Room Key. Out of the room and back to the first door to open it with the Room Key and find a chest with a Board. Exit the room and go to the middle door (Emergency Exit) and open it with the Room Key. Follow it to some stairs. Take the stairs up, past the 3rd floor, to the 4th floor. 4th Floor: Exit the stairwell and go left. Use the Board on the smallest gap between the two sides of the room to make a bridge and cross over to exit the room through it's front door. Go right, past the middle door (We'll come back to it later), and enter the door next to the elevator. The notice on the wall talks about a card in a desk. Looking in the middle of the room, you can see a clump of 8 desks together. Examine the desk second from the left on the bottom row (the one with a computer monitor facing towards you) to find the Card Key. Exit the room and go all the way left to the stairwell. Climb the stairs here to the 5th floor. 5th Floor: Once on the 5th floor, go all the way right to the door next to the elevator. Inside is a chest with an Archery Bow. Back to the stairs and down to the 4th floor. 4th Floor: Go back to the emergency exit staircase. Take the stairs down to the 2nd floor again. 2nd Floor: Exit out of the emergency exit area to the hallway with 3 doors and the broken elevator. Left to the main staircase and climb it to the 3rd floor. 3rd Floor: Exit the staircase and use the Card Key on the door blocking the hallway. Enter the first door you come to and examine the desk on the right next to the wall with the notice to find the Shelf Key. Now we get to backtrack yet again. Return to the 2nd floor. 2nd Floor: Go to the emergency exit and take the stairs there back to the 4th floor. 4th Floor: Back across the board bridge you made and out into the hallway. Go right and enter the first door you come to (the one we passed earlier). Use the Shelf Key on the right of the two glass display cases. After that, exit the room and walk left to the main staircase for a scene with some monsters. After they leave, use the stairs to climb up to the 5th floor. 5th Floor: Out of the stairwell and right to the first door. Go inside to find the monsters and talk to them to gain the Rope. Now backtrack your way to the basement again (4th Floor, Emergency Exit stairs to the 2nd, Main stairs to the basement). Before exiting the stairwell in the basement to the door leading back into the sewers, heal up as there's a boss fight coming. When ready, step out of the stairwell for a scene and the battle. Boss: Puppet Master (200 HP first form, 200HP second form) Rewards: 500 EXP, Ice Cut, Sleep Spell Book He likes to cast break, attack with a jump kick, and summon puppets. Once you deal 200 damage to him, his doll will break and he'll transform. If you kill the Puppet Master, any puppets he's summoned will stop functioning. After the battle, return to town, buy a T-Pass (Train Pass), then use it in the train station to return to Kokubu Town where you started the game. Go to Noah's home for a short scene. You can find a sandman in one of the shops that sells Herb, Elixir, Hilixir, and Shakkiri, if you need any items. Talk to anybody you want around town then go to the portal in the lower part of town to return to Phantom. You'll be at the cliff where the sandman created a hole to take you to Pheamone. No sandman this time, so examine the little rock sticking up in the bottom right corner and then use your Rope. Climb down and enter the cave. Step on the odd looking tile to be teleported to Plabrume, land of the sandmen. --------------- -C. The Desert- --------------- Plabrume ~~~~~~~~ Armor Shop: Plate Armor Wood Shield Hundred Armor Hundred Sandals Pretty Dress Pretty Bracelet Pretty Shoes Weapon Shop: Buster Sword Big Hammer Eagle Bow Item Shop: Herb Elixir Hilixir Shakkiri Telepo Speak with the townsfolk as you make your way to the top of town and into the center large building. Talk to Mayor Ozz inside and he'll ask you to take a quest for him. Say yes and you'll be on your way to the desert and the Cemetary of Heroes. When Plabrume stops moving, you can use the teleport tile at the bottom of town (where you appeared at to begin with) to teleport out into the desert. The monsters in the desert are quite strong and you should be around level 15 to deal with them. This is also the first time you'll see regular monsters casting spells so they can deal a bit of damage. The cemetary is in the very sout-east corner of the desert. Going south-east from the entrance to Plabrume, you'll eventually come across an Oasis. If you enter the Oasis, walk to the edge of the little jut of land sticking out into the water, and examine it, you can get fully healed. After healing at the Oasis, onward to the cemetary (There's a mountain in the north-east corner of the desert, but we can't do anything there yet). Cemetary of Heroes ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You can talk to the guy here if you wish. Make sure you're prepared before entering the building as your party will fall all the way to the bottom of the cemetary and you have a longways to go to get back out. Interestingly, monsters in here don't give any kira either. In the first room, there's a bunch of skeletons you can examine if you wish. The stairs to the second floor is in the bottom-right of the room. Near the stairs is a chest containing a Megaura spell book. 2nd Floor: This is the first puzzle room area. You have to ride the moving sand around. Picking the wrong way can result in you dropping back down to the 1st floor. Ride the sand moving up. Then walk straight up and ride the sand up again. Locate the sand moving left and ride that, then ride the sand up to a treasure chest. There's a strong monster inside the chest so heal before opening it. Miniboss: Gate Keeper (150 HP) Rewards: 300 EXP, Lucifer Club This battle rewards you with your first Maphu weapon, the Lucifer Club. Equip the club then ride the smaller strip of sand to the right (don't ride the top longer bit of sand as it'll drop you downstairs). Then ride down, left (like you're going to the chest again), and left one more time on a short bit of moving sand. Now ride the sands up, left, and down. Here you'll find yourself in a place with several bits of sand flowing downward (to your left, below you, and to your right). You want to hop on the sand to your left that's flowing downward. Once you reach solid ground, walk around up to the stairs in the top-left corner. 3rd Floor: Another large empty room with skeletons. Towards the top middle of the room is a treasure chest containing your first accessory, Holy Amulet. The stairs to the 4th floor are in the bottom right of the room. 4th Floor: Another puzzle room. Stepping on the darker blocks will automatically move you a few spaces in the direction you're facing. Go up from where you start at and continue to do so until you reach the top-right corner. There's two paths going left from here, take the lower one of the two. At the intersection, go down where you'll see a branched path that goes left/up and one that goes down. GO left and up following the path to the end to find a treasure chest that again contains a miniboss. Miniboss: Gate Keeper 2 (200 HP) Rewards: 350EXP, Lucifer Bow With your second Maphu weapon in hand. Backtrack on the path to the branch and go down until you can go no further down. Walk left past the first intersection to the second one. To be able to get to where you can walk up on the second intersection, you'll have to walk left over all the auto-moving pieces there, then turn right around and go right over one of them. You'll see three paths going up that you can choose from now. Take the middle one to get to the stairs. 5th Floor: Another large empty room with some bones. There's a treasure chest in the middle of the room, but only has 5kr (what a gyp). Oncea again, the stairs up is in the bottom right corner. 6th Floor: You're almost there. Follow the narrow path, being careful not to fall off (and drop back to the 5th floor). Once across this path, a voice will be heard. Now go left and down, reading the statues along the way. There's several paths going up from here. Walk left and take the first path up to read another statue. Back down and over to the next path up. Read the statue and then continue up. Here will be a wide gap. Look at the pieces of land sticking out into the gap. The part that extends out the furthest is connected to an invisible path. Cross the gap, read the statue, heal up, and open the chest. Boss: 2x Gate Keeper 3 (170 HP/ea), Gate Keeper 4 (220 HP) Rewards: 950EXP, Lucifer Sword I recommend having the Ice Cut connected to Ken's hammer so that when it charges up, he can do a maphu attack that hits all three of them. Once you have the sword, equip it on Noah and connect it to the Fire Cut Maphu. Walk back down, left, and up to the final statue. Talk to it, saying yes to the question about having all three weapons. Walk past him and onto the portal to exit the Cemetary. Return to Plabrume and talk to Ozz. A sandman will rush in with a message from Prince Speekas. He's discovered a secret to the mountain we ignored earlier so it's time to go there. Exit Plabrume and travel to the north-east corner of the desert to find the Desert Mountain. Enter it. Desert Mountain ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Soon after you enter, you'll see the prince. Talk to him and he'll join you. Continue on, climb the stairs, and walk around on the right to find a chest with a Wing Amulet. Return to the stairs and go around on the left side to overhear some monsters chatting. Continue up and around, ignoring the first walkway downward (deadend). You'll come across some more monsters talking, then take the stairs. To your upper left is some steps that'll take you downstairs, but all that's down there are the monsters you overheard earlier which you can fight if you want. Otherwise, follow the hallway down and left. A monster will say something to you then wander off. Follow it and take the stairs up. Follow the linear path and you'll come to a ramp leading to an odd looking floor panel. Go up and examine it for full recovery (there's a monster to the right of it that tells you it's a Heal Point). Continue on to two sets of stairs. Take the ones going down first and follow the walkway up and right to stairs going up. Keep climbing stairs until you reach a place with two treasure chests (Blueberry and a Blackberry). Now return to the Heal Point room and take the stairs that go up. Climb up the next set of steps and a scene occurs where you lose the prince. Once the scene is over, walk left and take the stairs down. Walk out onto the little walkway sticking out towards the portal to initiate another scene followed by a boss battle (which you're supposed to lose). Once you lose the battle, yet another scene. When you have control again, go back up stairs and talk to the prince. Walk through where he had been standing and go downstairs. Heal up and talk to the monster standing there for a boss fight. Boss: Maphu Elite (450 HP) Rewards: 700EXP, Miki learns Hewn spell, Dark Cut Step through the portal back to the real world. You'll find yourself in some woods next to a river. If you go up, you'll find a sealed rock door, so travel down to reach Kawada Village. ----------------- -D. Missing Kids- ----------------- Kawada Village ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Item Shop: Herb Elixir Hilixir Shakkiri The townsfolk will tell you about a Black Dragon Temple and kids getting kidnapped around town. Once you've talked to everybody, go to the slide in the upper part of town to find a masked woman. Talk to her and she'll give you a mask. After the scene where Miki puts on the mask, go back to town and visit the Black Dragon Temple in the bottom left corner. Talk to the monk and he'll join your party. Now return to the cave and the monk will use his skills to open the door. Proceed in and a monster will jump you. Dispose of the beast, then follow the tunnel to an intersection. Go up, past another intersection, and to the end to a chest containing the Monk's weapon (Three-Headed Tonfa). Go back to the first intersection and take the right path to a small room with a tunnel going down. Follow it down and outside to Yutaka Town. Yutaka Town ~~~~~~~~~~~ Item Shop: Herb Elixir Hilixir Shakkiri Ladder The people in town will inform you that the kids must be in the North Factory. If you visit the factory it's sealed, so return to town and buy a Ladder from the shop. Return to the cave we just came from. Inside, go up the path to a small room-like area and you'll see a ledge. Use the ladder there to place it then climb up the ladder and follow the path to the factory. North Factory ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ By this time, you should at least be in the low 20s for levels. When you go inside, there's a box with an Elixir a little to your right and up. Choose the path going right and take it all the way around to a locked door. Examine it and the monk will open it then teach Ken the Kaaah! spell. Walk past the door and up the stairs to the 2nd floor. 2nd Floor: You'll start off with a scene involving a monster and some kids. Kick the monster's rear and ride the conveyor belt over. Walk left here for a box with a Hilixir. Wander back right and talk to the monster standing there to initiate another battle. Walk down past the conveyor belt there (don't ride it back unless you want to return to the stairs) and then walk left and up some more stairs. 3rd Floor: Travel right and you'll encounter The Healer. Heal up for a boss battle then talk to her. Boss: Slowtarz (650 HP) Rewards: 800EXP, Wind Cut, Ganbar Spell Book The boss uses the hewn spell (deals 18-20 damage) and a saber attack (around 40 damage). After defeating the boss, there's a scene and you get Miki back (losing the monk). Take the top path right to find The Healer. Talk to her and she'll run away. Give chase, taking stairs down until you reach a door. Outside, go along the path to a monster. Talk to him then continue on to the Tanker. The Tanker ~~~~~~~~~~ Inside, take the stairs down to the bottom. Wander left and take the first path up, following it as it goes right and back down. Heal up and enter the room for a boss battle. Boss: Murderer (550 HP) Rewards: 900EXP He likes to use poisonspine which does about 20 damage and poisons a character.

Through the hallway, past the stairs, and up to a box with a Blueberry. Now take the stairs up. To the right is a box with a Hilixir. Grab it then left to where you'll see another boss standing there. Heal, save, and to battle.

The Healer defends (where you can only do 1-2 damage) and casts Aura to heal her friends. Once the giants are killed, you can use Ken's Kaaah! spell to knock off the Healer's mask and win the battle. After the battle, there's another scene with monsters and the Healer. Afterwards, follow them left. Go past the stairs for a box with a Blackberry, then take the stairs up. Right along the linear path until you spot another boss (this place is full of them). When you're ready, talk to him to start the fight.

Then follow the path for, yep, one more boss fight. Boss: Karn Rewards: N/A He'll defend and use mild attacks, eventually using a power attack for 80-100 damage a character. You just need to stay alive until he attacks as you're meant to lose this fight. Move to the edge of the Tanker where Ken will say something, then use the Aqualung to dive into the water after Karn and the woman. Underwater ~~~~~~~~~~ Swim into the cave right there for a Hilixir in a box. Swim back out, then right, up when you can, and follow it left to another cave with another box (Blackberry). Back out of the cave, swim up a little bit, and right to an intersection. Go up here and enter the cave. To the end of the tunnel where you'll find a portal back to Phantom. Once back in Phantom, travel through the cave to the exit and then go up to enter the town. ----------------------- -E. Return to Pheamone- ----------------------- Craftsmen Town ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Armor Shop (once you bring Methys Ore): Mystic Armor Mystic Shield Mystic Boots Thousand Armor Thousand Gauntlet Thousand Sandals Magical Dress Magical Bracelet Magical Shoes Weapon Shop (once you bring Methys Ore): Hero's Sword Hero's Staff Miracle Bow Item Shop: Herb Elixir Hilixir Shakkiri Telepo Costume Monsters in town?

Around town you'll learn of the Methys Jungle and that you need Methys Ore for the weapons and armor shops (which, unfortunately, we lack). Buy a Costume from the item shop and the shopkeeper will help you put them on. Now exit town and go north until you see an odd clump of trees to your left. That's Methys Jungle so wander over and enter. Methys Jungle ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Speak with the monster there if you want then continue through the jungle. At the first intersection, continue left (unless you want to talk to some other monsters on the path up). Again, keep going left at the second intersection (there's more monsters that you can speak to if you went up here as well). Once you reach the third intersection, go up and veer right when you can to find a cave entrance. Talk to the monster guarding the cave and he'll ask for the password. We don't know it yet, so go back down and right to the second intersection that we passed earlier. Wander up and talk to the monster above the fires who'll give you the Password. Return to the monster guarding the cave and use the Password item from your inventory to get inside. Go left inside the cave and there'll be a little intersection where you can go right or up. Walk up to the end and search to find the Pinkfrog maphu. Back down and right, continuing right at the next intersection to a treasure chest containing a Berserk Amulet. Walk up the tunnel above the chest to find a little hole in the wall. Examine it to acquire 2 Methys Ore. Since the monsters aren't attacking you while you're in the Costume, now would be a good time to return back to town and use the ores to upgrade your weapons and open the armor shop. Once you've upgraded as you like (be sure to put maphu gems on your weapons again after they're upgraded), go back to the cave and eavesdrop on a conversation between two monsters in the upper middle of the cave. A scene occurs where you're discovered and a monster attacks you. Now that you're out of your Costumes, random battles will occur once again. Get out of the cave and go down and left until you spot a group of monsters standing in a break between some trees. This is a boss fight so heal up and let's get them. Boss: Dancing Leo (700 HP) and 2x Hellfire 3 (300 HP/each) Rewards: 1700EXP, 400kr, Bolt Cut All three enemies in this fight are weak against ice, so consider using Ken's frigid maphu attack (Ice Cut) and Miki's Crack spell. You may want to concentrate on getting rid of the Hellfire 3s first as they can do a good bit of damage. Dancing Leo does a double punch to the whole party for about 40 damage each or can do a triple punch to one character for around 60-80 damage so try to keep your health up above 80. With Dancing Leo disposed of, go left, down, and left out of the Jungle to find yourself in an area you should recognize. Head south and enter Pheamone. In town, visit the inn to find Prince Speekas. Talk with him then visit the king in the castle for a long scene. When the scene ends, you'll be outside of town. Go north and enter the cave we passed up way back at the beginning of the game. Now there will be a sandman here. Speak with him and he'll open a hole to the North Continent. Hop in the hole and follow the linear path to the end where you'll end up in another cave. Exit the cave and you'll find yourself on the North Continent. -------------------- -F. The Three Seals- -------------------- Plabrume ~~~~~~~~ Follow the mountain range north and then east until you find Plabrume above ground. Go inside and talk to everyone around. Be sure to check the armor shop as it's gotten all new equipment. Armor Shop: Brave Armor Brave Boots Brave Shield Justice Armor Justice Gauntlet Justice Sandals Lovely Dress Lovely Bracelet Lovely Shoes After you've stocked up on equipment and items, go talk to Ozz. He'll give you a choice of going to the Demon Castle or not. If you feel ready, say Yes and away we go. Once Plabrume lands, exit out and enter the Demon Castle. Ancient Town ~~~~~~~~~~~~ When you enter the Demon Castle, a scene occurs and you're teleported to an ancient, broken down town where souls (flames) are everywhere. You can speak with them if you wish. Go left and up where you'll see an open door you can enter which is a free inn. The goal here is to unlock three seals that are in this ghost town. Go up from the inn and you'll see a large open doorway, enter it and let's release the first seal. There's two sets of stairs here and two teleport pads. Go to the right, ignoring the stairs, and step on the teleport pad. After you've warped to another room, climb the stairs. Walk left and climb the stairs you come across. This room has two teleport pads. Use the one furthest to the right. In this new room, walk right and down and fall in the hole in the floor. Step on the teleport in this room, then walk straight down and into another hole. Once you land, recover your health and walk up and off the edge to reach the boss you probably saw on the first floor. Boss: Drahda (780 HP) Rewards: 1650EXP Drahda uses a claw attack on you that can hit twice for a total of about 50 damage. His frigid breath attack does around 30 damage to all party members. Once defeated, the first seal is unlocked. Two to go. Exit out of the building to the town area. Rest at the inn, then from the building where we unlocked the first seal, walk right and enter the next large open doorway you find. Take the right path to the stairs. Clib them and step on the teleport pad. Move from teleport pad to teleport pad until you end up at a chest with a Blackberry. There's no other way out of here, so step on the teleport pad we just came from. Once you've warped, take the stairs down. Now make your way left back to where the entrance is and continue left to another set of stairs (You may want to step out to visit the inn before continuing). Take these left stairs up. Step on the teleport pad and proceed by using each teleport pad until you reach what appears to be a deadend. Step on the teleport pad you just appeared from to warp to another area. Take a couple of teleport pads and you'll end up in another dead end. Step on the teleport pad you just came out of to once again go somewhere else. Here you have a choice of going left or right. Go right and take the portal there. Following the path, there's a branch, take the lower one around to a teleport pad. Take the teleport, heal up, then drop down either the right or left hole to face the boss here. Boss: Revenant (550 HP) and 2x Vanbit (230 HP/each) Rewards: 1902EXP, 400kr Kill off the vanbits first to make things easier. Revenant will use the break spell which does about 20 damage to all. He also likes to use aura to heal himself and his vanbit buddies. After the battle, step on the teleport pad. Go left and step on the teleport. Now let's go get another chest you may have seen previously (just to let you know, it has a Telepo. If you don't want it, then skip the rest of this paragraph). Step on the teleport pad we just came out of. Now in the next room, step on the pad we just came out of again. Take the next teleport pad in this room to end up in a dead end room. Turn around and step on the pad again. Here, once again step on the teleport pad we just appeared from to reach the room with the chest containing a Telepo. Now step on the pads until you get back to the stairs to exit out. Two down, one seal to go. Go rest at the inn again then go to the right side of town to find the third and final large open doorway leading to the third seal. Go on in and take several sets of stairs down to a large room with conveyor belts. Walk up and ride the conveyor belt going left. Walk down and take the very bottom conveyor belt going right. Walk a little down and take the first path left to get a chest (Hilixir) then walk back right and down to a conveyor belt going left. Take another belt left and then go through the doorway below you to find some stairs. Climb up the stairs, go along the hallway, and down the next set of steps. We're back in the large room of conveyor belts, but on the left side. Walk up along the left wall to the top conveyor belt going right. Ride it across, then walk over until you see a doorway in the top wall. Recover your characters then walk through to face the boss of the third seal. Boss: Hell Hunter (675 HP) Rewards: 1650EXP Hell Hunter uses a scythe attack that hits twice for 20-30 damage a hit. Otherwise, nothing too spectacular about him. After finishing the last demon off and unsealing all three seals, a scene will occur and you'll be teleported back to the entrance to the Demon Castle. You may want to pay a visit to Plabrume to recover and restock on items. Now it's time to tackle the final dungeon, Demon Castle. ----------------- -G. Demon Castle- ----------------- You're currently on the outside mountain side of the castle. Go up the ladder then left and up another ladder for a chest (Blackberry). Back down and right to the entrance and continue right past it to another ladder. Up this ladder, and walk straight up to another ladder, climbing it for another chest (Blueberry). Go back down the ladder, then left to yet one more ladder and up. Grab the chest to your left (Hilixir) then make your way right to the door into the castle proper. After losing the prince in a scene at the door, go inside where you'll immediately get pounced on by a monster. Up the ladder there then take the left ladder. After climbing that ladder, go through the doorway on your left. Follow the monster to the left, then go up and fight him. After the battle, climb the ladder and open the chest (Earth Orb). You'll need to find 4 Orbs which will unlock the pathway to the final battle, so that leaves 3 remaining to find. Go back down the ladder and make your way right. Ignore the moving hooks and find the ladder that leads up to another doorway. Go through the doorway into another room. Walk across and through the doorway. Go all the way up from where you came in to find a chest with the Water Orb. Now walk back down and ride the hooks right once. Travel up and talk to the two monsters then go right, up the ladder, ride the hooks left, and walk through the doorway. Climb up the ladder here. You can see a platform to the left as you climb up. When you get to the top, walk around to the left and slide off the edge of the walkway to land on the platform you saw while climbing, then walk left and through the doorway. Up yet another ladder. You want to take the left ladder here and go through the dimensional portal to another section of the castle. Once through the portal, go right, up the ladder, and through the door to find a chest (Fire Orb) and a much needed heal point. Return to the room with the dimensional portal and go left, up the ladder, and through the doorway. Follow the walkway to a poitn where you see two monsters and a woman. Heal up and it's time for a rather nasty boss fight. Boss: Lar (800 HP) and Karn (750 HP) Rewards: 4000 EXP, 2000kr This one is a pain as they're both quite powerful. Lar is the faster of the two and does a crack spell (~40 damage), burn (damage in the 30s), and hewn (damage to all in the 30s). Karn is slower, but can do upwards of 80 damage to a character with his attacks. Once they're defeated, the Healer is saved and joins you. She can randomly heal one of your weakened characters during battle. Walk up, climb the ladder, and grab the Sky Orb (You now have all 4). Ride the hooks right and then up the ladder and through the doorway. Go all the way right, up a ladder, then left and through a doorway. Place the four orbs in their proper pedestals in front of the dimensional gate (from left to right: Earth, Water, Fire, Sky). Save then go through the gate. We're now in a place that appears to be the party's hometown. Wander around talking to all the people that are there. Walk down to the building where the first dimensional portal of the game is and you'll find that it isn't working. Now wander around town (around the center of it) until you activate a scene with the Demon master. An interesting plot twist occurs and then the final battle commences. Boss: Grover (~1393 HP) Rewards: None Grover attacks with impact (40s damage to one or all characters), can impact twice for 80-90s damage, cast crack and break for damage in the 40s and cast burn for around 30 damage. Keep whacking on him and using your maphu skills. Be sure to conserve magic when you can as when you defeat him, he will morph and start another boss battle. Boss: Grover (~1613 HP) Rewards: None The morphed Grover has more health and prefers to use his impact attack. Now it can do damage in the 40s to 50s to all characters and he can double hit (80-90s damage) or triple hit (120s-150s damage) one character. Keep your health above 150 so that he doesn't kill off a character with a triple hit of impact. I was level 38 at the end and had some difficulty defeating him, so you may want to build up a few more levels than I did. Good luck. Once that's over, the ending scenes commence. Congratulations on beating God Medicine. Watch during the credits for scenes of characters from the game and what they are doing after the events of their quest. *********************************************************************** ========== IV.
