    SECTION 1:  WELCOME TO BARBARIA
    ===============================
    
         An age of darkness beset Barbaria, its origin a mystery until now.
    A man known as Zaugg is said to have woven magic so vile that the land
    itself is eroding from its evil corruption.  Prophecy foretold of this
    wicked time, placing the only chance of salvation on the shoulders of
    one hero of Barbaria.  Heroes of Barbaria come in many forms and from
    many places.  Their motives to stop the madness forged by Zaugg are
    more than ending his growing power.  Who they are, why they quest, and
    what they will become is destiny.  Only one has the power to succeed!
    
         Those heroes of Barbaria are known as Barbarians.  Their kind has
    waged war since the dawn of time, ravaging the Earth as they battle
    with weapon and magic alike!  They stand fearless before the world,
    wielding power and magic.  With the coming of Zaugg, the call to battle
    is made.  Who is the Barbarian of prophecy?  Prepare yourself, the
    battle begins...
    
    
    =========================================================
    SECTION 2:  THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE LONELY, AND THE WICKED
    =========================================================
    
    DAGAN of the Clan Dolok:  Dagan is the last of the clan Dolok, losing
    his wife at the hands of Zaugg's minions.  Embittered by the cowardly
    murder of his wife when away from his home in the Lost Fortress of
    Skurlok, Dagan's lust for revenge knows no bound.  Seething with anger,
    Dagan seeks those behind her death.  He will not rest until justice is
    delivered!
    
    KEELA, Princes of Argon:  Keela's father, the King of Argos, died in
    his quest to obtain the legendary Bloodsong.  With it, he hoped to
    restore power to his kingdom and then to Barbaria.  His death weighs
    heavily upon Keela, a sword master and princess.  Somewhere in the
    northern seas, far from their home in Shorestone Castle, Keela's father
    died, but his quest did not end.  Keela has taken up his quest for
    Bloodsong!
    
    EYARA, Nature's Guardian:  As nature's guardian, Eyara protects the
    forest and a powerful artifact known as Forestsong.  Without family or
    any connection outside the plants and creatures of earth, Eyara has
    dedicated her life to champion the land itself.  Disturbed by
    aggressions made by minions of Zaugg and the wilting corrupting magic
    pervading her otherwise Eden, Eyara must venture from her secluded life
    in the Venomous Swamp to vanquish the evil!
    
    CORATH, Apprentice to Zaugg:  As an apprentice to Zaugg, Corath learned
    arcane magic and the ways of combat.  He awaited Zaugg's failing health
    to end his life, so that he would rule in his place.  Zaugg's work with
    life and death discovered a way to cheat his imminent demise.  Zaugg
    inhabited a new powerful body, one that would far outlive Corath.
    Jealous and furious, Corath fled and took refuge in the Land of
    Desolation.  He seeks the Elements of Ascendancy, ancient artifacts
    with the power to destroy Zaugg and bring Barbaria to its knees before
    him.
    
    MAGNUS, Lord of the Undead:  Once the scourge of Barbaria's Northern
    Seas, warring against the kingdom of Argos, Magnus in a grand battle
    against Argos' king himself fell to his death in an exchange of lethal
    blows.  Magnus would not fade into death at Shipwreck Waters, driven by
    his determination to regain the stolen Bloodsong.  The shroud of doom
    falling over Barbaria has weakened the curse that kept Magnus from
    pursuing Bloodsong.  He has waited too long between life and death and
    with his new freedom, his journey has only begun...
    
    STITCH, Experiment of Zaugg:  Zaugg was not born with the power he now
    wields.  He spent his life learning and exploring magic of light and
    dark, of life and death itself.  Only one creation of Zaugg's walks
    with free will, and it is Stitch!  From his resting place in the grave,
    Zaugg pulled the life back into Stitch's decayed body.  Stitch went
    mad, hating his existence between the living and the dead.  Making his
    home in the Underground Sewers, Stitch lays plans to exact revenge on
    Zaugg for putting him in this eternal torment.  He will have his
    revenge!
    
    JINN, Demon of Naraka:  The foul magic that pollutes Barbaria has
    opened up a portal to the netherworld, a gate to the underworld.
    Although the gate must be opened by summoning sorcery, there is nothing
    that demands that the hell spawn must return.  Escaping the abyssal
    realm during one of Zaugg's mighty spells drawing upon her world's dark
    force, Jinn does not intend to return.  Her earthly home is in the
    Lower Darklands, a place of infernal heat and destruction from
    volcanoes and geysers of fire.  Her role in the underworld was to
    torment the souls of the damned, but now Jinn sees much more pleasure
    in tormenting the living!
    
    PHADE, Master Assassin:  Moving in the shadows is the assassin, a
    killer without remorse, a tool of murder - this is Phade.  She found
    comfort in the Spider's Lair, making it her home.  Hired by Zaugg and
    many others, Phade terminates any life for anyone given the right
    price.  Her exploits have earned her the fear of men throughout
    Barbaria, but her thirst to perfect her art has recently turned to
    relics, artifacts, and the power that Zaugg wields himself!
    
    21, Orphaned Prisoner:  Taken to the Prisons of Akrowla as an orphan,
    21 knows nothing of his past - no home, no family, not even a name.  He
    was prisoner #21 and so became known as 21 whose home is in the Prisons
    of Akrowla.  The gloom that has spread throughout Barbaria has left the
    ancient prison abandoned, letting 21 decide his destiny.  He wants
    revenge upon those that imprisoned him so long ago.  Every fiber in his
    massive physique seeks vengeance.  Into the world he must go, searching
    for his captors and tormentors alike!
    
    MONGO, Transformed Monkey:  The light heart of a little monkey is
    buried within this carnivorous ape.  Mongo loved to bask in the
    sunlight beneath the trees near his home, The Forgotten Ruins.  His
    size demanded much food and Mongo found his fearful countenance and
    need to eat so much made enemies of many.  Unaware of the cloud
    surrounding Barbaria, Mongo has found food is scarce and the sun is
    dim.  His world must be fixed.  Mongo's adventure begins.
    
    ZAUGG, Arch Mage:  The aging wizard knew his demise was imminent and
    that the apprentice Corath hoped to take control of the Eastern lands
    of Barbaria upon his passing.  Zaugg's research had focused on life and
    death, and the world between occupied by the undead...  His experiments
    brought him to the ancient Spell of Divinity, through which he would
    become immortal.  His spell has been cast and time is running out for
    Barbaria.  The only force that stands in his way now is the foretold
    hero of prophecy...
    
    
    ======================
    SECTION 3:  THE BASICS
    ======================
    
         Welcome to your lesson in the basic principles of combat,
    barbarian.
    
    MOVEMENT:  Use the Left Analog Stick to move and the X Button to Jump.
    You can steer your jumps, but running jumps are more difficult to
    control then standing ones.  Use the Team Circle below you to guide
    where you land.
    
    ATTACKS:  The Square and the Triangle Button are your primary attacks.
    Triangle Button attacks are slow, but more damaging than Square Button
    attacks.  By using different combinations of the Square and Triangle
    Buttons, you can perform combos.  Square Button, Square Button, Square
    Button, and Triangle, Triangle Button, Triangle Button, Triangle
    Button, are the basics of combos.
    
    LIFE METER:  When players are hit, life is subtracted from their life
    meter.  Your life meter is the Red Bar located in the upper-left hand
    corner of the screen.  When your life meter is empty, you will die.
    
    BLOCKING:  Try to block attacks when you cannot avoid them.  Most can
    be blocked, and often leave enemies with their guard down.  To Block,
    Hold down the L1 Button and push the Left Analog Stick towards your
    opponent.
    
    GRABS:  The Square Button is used to grab objects and players, as well
    as climb and hang from the arena.  To Grab Objects or Throw Players,
    just move next to them and press the Square Button.  Pressing the
    Square Button again will release objects you hold.
    
    HANGING AND CLIMBING:  To climb and hang from a ceiling or pole, first
    jump near the ceiling or pole you wish to grab and then press the
    Circle Button.  Press the Circle Button again to release the ceiling or
    the pole, or the Square Button or Triangle Button to attack.
    
    
    ======================
    SECTION 4:  THE COMBOS
    ======================
    
         Welcome to you lesson in combos and runes, barbarian.  Combos are
    performed with different combinations of the Square Button and the
    Triangle Buttons.  When you attack with the Square and Triangle
    Buttons, you can link it to another attack with the Square or Triangle
    Button.  You can link it to another attack by pressing the Square or
    Triangle Button again before the previous attack finishes.  By linking
    attacks in this manner, you can perform combos up to 6 hits long.  Each
    character has 8 combos.  If the last attack of a combo hits the enemy,
    it is accompanied by a special sound and a colored flash.  These
    effects identify each combo.
    
    WEAK COMBO:  Your weak combo is accompanied by a white burst.  It is
    the easiest to perform, and does normal damage.
    
    STRONG COMBO:  Your strong combo is also accompanied by a white burst.
    It is also the easiest to perform, and does a little above normal
    damage.
    
    STUN COMBO: This combo is accompanied by a yellow burst.  Opponents
    will recover from stun combos slowly, giving you time to breathe in
    battle.  Thugs are stunned extra long, giving you extra time to grab
    them.
    
    PUSHBACK COMBO:  This combo is accompanied by an orange burst.  It
    sends your opponent rolling away so you can concentrate on other nearby
    enemies.
    
    QUICK COMBO:  This combo is accompanied by an aqua burst.  It is faster
    than a normal combo and ideal for juggling opponents.
    
    MAGIC COMBO:  This combo is accompanied by a blue burst.  It recharges
    your magic meter much faster than a normal attack would.
    
    LEAK COMBO:  This combo is accompanied by a red burst.  It does damage
    to your opponents, even if they try to block you.
    
    POP UP COMBO:  This combo is accompanied by a green burst.  It will
    launch your opponents into the air, allowing you to follow with attacks
    that juggle your opponent.
    
         If you forget a combo during play, pause the game with the Start
    Button and review your Move List.  It lists all of your combos and
    describes what they do.  All combos are derived from eight bases.
    (Square, Square, and Square), (Square, Triangle, and Triangle),
    (Square, Square, and Triangle), (Square, Triangle, and Square), and
    (Triangle, Triangle, and Triangle), (Triangle, Square, and Square),
    (Triangle, Triangle, and Square), and (Triangle, Square, Triangle).
    When a combo is longer than three hits, the last hit is repeated over
    and over until the combo ends.  This may help you remember them.
    
    
    ===============================
    SECTION 5:  THE MAGIC AND RUNES
    ===============================
    
         Welcome to your lesson is magic, barbarian.  Each Character has
    two special attacks and four rune attacks.  These are called magic
    attacks.  To use magic attacks, you must have enough magic in your
    magic meter, which is located beneath your life meter.
    
    PUSH ATTACK:  Your first special attack is a push attack.  Use it when
    you are being overwhelmed by your opponents.  You can even use the push
    attack while you are being hit.  Push the Square Button + X Button at
    the same time.
    
    RANGED ATTACK:  Your second special attack is a ranged attack that
    throws projectiles at your opponents.  Tap the R1 Button to fire a
    single projectile.  Or hold the R1 Button down to charge and release a
    more powerful projectile attack
    
         You may have noticed your magic meter reducing as you use magic
    attacks.  Magic regenerates slowly by default, but you can speed this
    up in one of three ways.  First, by taking damage or by inflicting
    damage on others.  Second, by completing a magic combo on your
    opponent.  Third, by raising your magic attribute in Quest Mode.
    
         In play, you will sometimes see symbols that appear over your
    characters.  These are called Runes.  Earned Runes will appear above
    your magic meter.  If you have enough magic, both your magic meter and
    Rune will glow.  When they glow, you can press the R2 Button to release
    a Rune Attack.  There are four Runes that you can acquire.  They are
    Combo Runes, Throw Runes, Object Runes, and Counter Runes.  You earn
    them by performing different actions in combat.
    
    COMBO RUNE:  To earn this Rune, complete any combo on your opponent.
    The Rune gained here will look like a Pink Colored ([]).  Press the R2
    Button to release the Rune Attack.
    
    THROW RUNE:  To earn this Rune, you must throw any opponent.  The Rune
    symbol gained here will look like an Aqua Colored (U).  Press the R2
    Button to release the Rune Attack.
    
    OBJECT RUNE:  To earn this Rune, you must successfully attack an
    opponent with an object.  The Rune symbol gained here will look like an
    Orange Colored (X).  Press the R2 Button to release the Rune Attack.
    
    COUNTER RUNE:  To earn this Rune, you must successfully counter your
    opponent.  The Rune symbol gained here will look like a Green Colored
    (/\).  Press the R2 Button to release the Rune Attack.
    
         Try using these runes in practice mode to learn what they do.
    Often, the effect of a Rune Attack is described in text beneath your
    magic bar.
    
    
    =================================
    SECTION 6:  THE OBJECTS AND GRABS
    =================================
    
         Welcome to your lesson in advanced principles of objects and
    grabs, barbarian.  Some objects are too heavy to lift at first.  There
    is still more to learn with objects as you earn levels with Quest Mode.
    You can raise your lift attribute to lift, run, and perform combos with
    heavier objects and thugs.
    
    OBJECT WEIGHT:  When you stand near an object, an arrow appears above
    it.  Arrows describe the weight of each object.  Green arrows represent
    light objects, yellow arrows describe medium objects, and red arrows
    represent heavy objects.
    
         There are two types of objects.  They are objects that you can
    swing and objects that you can throw.
    
    SWING OBJECT:  Swing objects are held in front of you.  Use the Square
    Button to attack with swing objects, or the Triangle Button to plant
    them upright in the ground.
    
    THROW OBJECT:  Throw objects are carried over your head.  Use the
    Square Button or Triangle Button to attack by throwing the object.
    
         Thugs can also be used as objects.  Just grab them with the Square
    Button after knocking them to the ground.  You can swing thugs at your
    opponents with the Square Button or throw thugs with the Triangle
    Button.  To release a held thug, push the Circle Button to put the thug
    down.
    
    
    ========================
    SECTION 7:  THE COUNTERS
    ========================
    
         Welcome to your lesson in counters, barbarian.  To attempt a
    counter, block, and then tap either attack button.  If you trigger your
    counter attempt right before a standard attack hits you, you will
    counter that attack.  However, counters do not work against air or
    magic attacks.
    
    COUNTER ATTACK:  L1 + Square Button or Triangle Button
    
    
    ==========================
    SECTION 8:  THE ATTRIBUTES
    ==========================

         Dagan returns to find his wife in a bloodied heap, apparently
    given a slow and tortuous death at the hands of assassin Phade.
    Phade's grin suggests she enjoyed this assignment, and apparently
    includes Dagan's demise as well...

         His heart heavy, Phade's dying words weighing on him so, Dagan
    wondered how could some foul magic command him and his wife to die
    without him ever knowing why?  The assassin Phade failed to slay Dagan,
    though his wife laid dead before him.  If this Phade knew magic was
    behind his wife's murder, then he knew the answer lied in the east...home
    to the necromancers.  Dagan traveled to its capital in the Land of
    Desolation, where he met the wizard, known as Corath, told Dagan that
    his wife died only because Dagan was not there...he grinned and explained
    that as long as Dagan live, all he cared for would die... enraged,
    Dagan attacked the wizard!

         Phade's last words pierced Dagan's woe-stricken heart... he had only
    touched the evil that slew his wife by striking the assassin down.  She
    claimed a greater evil beyond death and of grave magic wished Dagan and
    his wife dead.  If this power was beyond death, then surely the undead
    in the Underground Sewers would have answers!  Dagan decided to see if
    the legendary living dead, Stitch, was behind this foul act!  He found
    him, but Stitch refused to speak with Dagan... determined to learn what
    Stitch knew, Dagan attacked Stitch hoping to "persuade" him to talk.

    must travel to the forgotten ruins, a place he'd heard harbored shape
    shifters and sorcerers.  There he found a ferocious ape, huge and
    magical...it called itself Mongo!  The beast attacked Dagan, protecting

         Rushing back into the cavernous sewers, Dagan desperately sought
    the elusive Stitch.  No where to be found, his heart sank... but then he
    found a parchment stuck to a cracked skull with a rusted dagger.  It
    was an order to bring Princess Keela to the Prisons of Akrowla for
    torture and eventual death.  Dagan could not let this girl die, and so
    he journeyed to the prison to rescue her.  As he searched, a huge man
    emerged from prison cell 21, muttering something about being freed if
    Dagan died...

         The poor mutant ape, Mongo, was sent to his peace by Dagan.  Yet
    Dagan learned nothing from him.  Deeper into the magic, he must travel.
    Dagan journeyed into the Venomous Swamps, where a witch was said to
    live.  He found the green witch of the swamp.  She told Dagan her name
    was Eyara, and that he must leave her sanctuary at once, for he was not
    welcome.  Unwilling to abort his quest, Dagan pressed onward...Dagan
    attacked!

         Finding only the ape, Mongo, on his quest to find the source of

    the wisdom of Keela, Princess of Argos.  He found Keela quite a warrior
    in her own right.  She told Dagan that she knew who ordered Phade  to
    slay his wife, but would tell him only when he proved worthy of the
    knowledge.  They fought...

    His choices were not the best, for now Keela was dead... just like his
    wife, but Dagan could have saved the princess.  He let her die.  He
    thought to retreat to the Forgotten Ruins to consider his actions.  His
    meditation was interrupted by an apparition of a forlorn woman.  It was
    the ghost of Keela!  She bemoaned Dagan for abandoning her and told him

    without rest or sleep, until he finally came upon the dark under earth
    known as the Spider's Lair.  Barely had he entered the mouth of the
    dungeon, a foul green gas filled the air around him.  Weakened by the
    poison, Dagan struggled to steady himself.  Stitch and thugs stepped
    into view... this was a trap!

         Heeding Eyara's words, Dagan sought the demon she spoke of in the

    volcanic geysers that filled the land.  Black lava rocks crunched
    beneath his feat as he delved deeper into the heart of darkness, where
    he found the demon Jinn.  Her dark fiery skin pitch eyes were clearly
    of Naraka, the hell of Barbaria.  Jinn told Dagan that she needed
    mortal's blood to fulfill her master's wish, and that his blood would
    do fine...the demon attacked.

    Barbaria.  Why they took control of the den of giant spiders, only they
    knew.  It was dark and poison dripped from the walls.  The crackle of
    fire could be heard as the demon Jinn entered view.  Fire danced across
    her skin as she told Dagan that she would finish what Phade failed to
    do!

         The horrible vision of Keela, a beautiful woman sacrificed and

    distracted... something was happening to him... he had betrayed himself,
    his wife, his cause... only defeating Magnus could redeem his soul and
    lift this curse... he knew Magnus existed near his old ship within
    Shipwreck Waters, and so he went there.  Magnus thanked Dagan for
    giving him the soul of Keela, and told him that his soul too would soon
    be his to command... he raised his mighty sword and they fought.

    death of his wife!  He thought perhaps the princess Keela of Argos

    wondering who there was undying.  He found a zombie called Stitch
    within the prison, a horrible man existing between life and death...
    apparently gone made because of it.  Wielding rusty blades and writhing

    the simian's heart, and it merged with him... Mongo became Mongo the Ape!
    Dagan must wrest the dark influence from the soul of Mongo... Mongo's

         The wizard Corath stood firm before Dagan, his demon Jinn by his
    side.  His sinister laugh echoed across the desolate expanse of what
    was once a great empire.  Pointing to a pillar that emanated a hair
    raising force, as if electricity filled the air around it.  He told of
    his lord and master Zaugg... and of how this pillar was one of the three
    master Pillars of Corruption.

         Into the Venomous Swamp strode Dagan, seeking the second Pillar of
    Corruption.  He found it, arcing with an electrical force stronger than
    the first.  It seemed to be drawing more energy from Barbaria than the
    first, compensating for there now being only two pillars remaining.  A
    corrupted Eyara, now the Destroyer of Nature, stood ready to defend the
    pillar!  Dagan could see that this Eyara was drawing power from the
    pillar, making her stronger and perhaps unbeatable!  Her good soul was
    dark and evil, twisted by the corrupting forces exuded by the pillars...

    burn a bright aqua color.  During this time, when Keela blocks with her
    shield successfully, the damage of the enemy's attacks will be

    attack.
    
    THROW RUNE (U):  Keela will raise her sword over her head and will
    plunge it fiercely into the ground that will then project and aqua
    shockwave that will knock any enemy lurking around her.  This attack is
    best used against multiple enemies when surrounded.  Press the R2
    Button to release the attack.
    
    OBJECT RUNE (X):  Keela will raise her arms and will grow four spinning
    blades that will continuously circle around her body.  So if anyone
    gets too close to her, they will have the pleasure of being hacked to
    pieces!  This attack is good for juggling opponents.  Press the R2
    Button to release the attack.
    
    COUNTER RUNE (/\):  "NO PAIN."  Keela will pound her fist into the
    ground and an aqua and white aura will emit from her.  During this
    time, if Keela is attacked, she will lose energy but she will not be
    knocked off balance and will be able to dish out a combo off her own at
    any time.  This attack is good for attackers who will not let up.

         On her knees before her father's sarcophagus deep within the tomb
    of kings below Shorestone Castle, Princess Keela wept.  Her father died
    in search of the legendary Bloodsong.  A relic stone said to have
    powers of transmutation and invincibility.  It could change simple
    rocks to ingots of gold, transform steel swords into brittle wax, and
    more...All while granting the man who wore it around his neck
    invulnerability.  Keela's tears covered her face, as a raspy voice
    spoke behind her.  It was Stitch, the undead!  Keela rolled to the

    would seek him out.  But first she went to Dagan of the Clan Dolok.  He

    Playing with the heiress of Barbaria's western region, Corath told her

    would know such things, for thieves and assassins are close to

         The wizard Corath, ruling lord over the desolate far east of
    Barbaria, seemed amused that Keela came to him for help.  Playing with
    the heiress of Barbaria's western region, Corath told her that only
    when she had performed a task for him would he grant her the
    information she sought.  Keela was no errand girl and enraged Corath!

         The sad princess lamented her loss to the point every day she felt
    sick.  Her wishes for her father to return were never heard.  She gave
    and gave and gave all her life... and she never expected anything in
    return... until now.  She should have her father back...he was the only
    person that mattered to her since her mother died giving birth to her...
    and her aunt that cared for her died from the fever when she was not
    even two years old.  Keela's life was full of loss, and now even her
    father was gone.  She needed advice, and turned to Eyara... but Eyara did
    not recognize Keela...  Eyara condemned her for violating her sanctuary

         Keela went to The Forgotten Ruins to reflect.  She fell asleep and
    dreamt of the silly smile her father made to cheer her up and of
    playing word games to help her spell.  She saw herself, when she was a
    little girl, playing in the clear ocean water next to their home,
    Shorestone Castle...  Their time was full of laughter.  They ran and
    frolicked in the brine... finding seashells and pretty salt polished
    rocks.  ...The dream turned red and was hot... Keela saw flames everywhere
    and heard her father cry out in pain, burning from torture!  Her eyes
    opened wide and saw a demon, black skin and pitch eyes with fire
    dancing across her flesh.  She attacked!

    this Corath not capture Mongo himself she wondered?  She decided the
    thieves guild might offer insight, for her father always told her when
    you sit down to play a game, do not feel afraid to look under the
    table.  Keela went to see Phade in the Spider's Lair.  Keela expected a

    unrelenting barbarian.  Press the R2 Button to release the attack.
    
    OBJECT RUNE (X):  Eyara will raise her arms, holding the staff in both
    hands, and will plunge her glowing staff into the ground.  Then, a
    circular wave or sharks will branch out from her.  This attack is good
    for knocking down a group of enemies that try to surround you so that
    you will gain some breathing room.  Press the R2 Button to release the
    attack.
    
    COUNTER RUNE (/\):  Eyara will kneel down and with staff in hand will
    unleash a seemingly never ending wave of sharks towards and opponent.
    This rune attack can be aimed as well when utilized.  This attack is
    good for juggling attackers as well as taking down an opponent's energy
    real fast!  Press the R2 Button to release the attack.

    at her disapprovingly.  She belonged with nature, not here... not with
    these... people.  Corath, the wizard warrior, greeted Eyara and promised
    to answer her question if she would show him her skill in combat.  ...And
    so they fought.

         Eyara left Corath in the Land of Desolation and thought perhaps he
    was right, that Argos found some way to weaken the magic of the Far
    East.  If so, she decided a direct confrontation would be unwise.
    She'd known nobility of Argos and though they had always been honest,
    their sense of justice was sometimes misplaced.  She headed instead to
    the neutral highlander, Dagan of the clan Dolok, living in the Arctic
    Highlands of Skurlok.  She found the clan all but gone, save for Dagan
    himself in the lost fortress.  Dagan swung his axe at Eyara,

    her race was driven out long ago...  He challenged, how could this child
    of the greenlings still be!?  Eyara was un like any she'd ever seen
    herself since her village was razed...  and the world always told her so.
    Her glazed eyes and green skin always drew attention.  She entered the
    dungeon within the sewers, her nostrils flaring from the stench.  She

    solid black, Keela had passed judgment that she was a witch and should
    be stoned to death.  Eyara stayed clear for years, but she was only 14

    so full of her self-righteous ways that she often judged others in
    error.  Eyara was victim of such a judgment long ago, for Keela thought
    her a witch because her eyes were glazed and her skin was green.  Eyara
    fled then from a stoning that could have killed her.  This Keela was
    quick to judge.  Eyara entered with caution, only to find the same

    greenlings.  She traveled across the foreboding channel and up into the
    Highlands of Skurlok where she sought a man she'd heard knew much of
    Argos.  A broad shouldered strong warrior leapt from an icy ledge,

    They were the same age, 8 years old.  Phade mourned her parents' death.
    They burned alive in their home after it went up in flames from a
    faulty fireplace.  There was little she could do, but she tried to
    help.  She felt the pain, for her parents died from a fie as well.
    Eyara and Phade had different values, but they had been friends for
    many years.  Eyara reached the ancient prison, and saw everything was

    her village aflame.  Carried out by her father, she was rescued... but
    died from the smoke and heat.  Her mother never even made it out of the

    of Naraka...  Its dark hellish negative energy...  Corath journeyed and

    render himself immune to death, and it was one part of the relics of
    ascendancy.  If he could find all of the relics, he could become a god

         Deep in the Lower Darklands, Corath was ready to tap into the
    magic of the Pillar of Corruption that was to arrive shortly...  Geysers
    of fire burst from the ground, shooting over 50 feet into the sky...  and
    as they lowered, molten rock poured from the holes they left behind...  A
    purple haze filled the air and the smell of sulfur dominated the
    senses...  He could hear the screams of anguishing souls, tormenting
    across the planes of hell and mortality...  The Pillar rose from the
    Earth,  electricity arcing in all directions as it did...  the demon Jinn
    was there to help Corath, but she had changed...  Twisted somehow by the
    Pillar, she was not bound it seemed and attacked him!

         Corath walked through the portal, finding himself before Zaugg.
    He looked upon me, his master, and told me that he would rather die now
    than continue to serve me...  I bellowed laughter from my behemoth stone
    golem form.  Corath, my apprentice, it is a shame your arrogance has
    brought you to this... suicide.  Do you forget that the gods fear me?  Do
    you think your magic tricks are enough to stop me?  Corath, remember... I

    RUNE ATTACKS:
    -------------
    
    COMBO RUNE ([]):  "DAMAGE BONUS."  Magnus will clutch his great sword
    tightly and pull in energy from the air.  During this time, Magnus'
    sword will emit blue light rays and his attacks will become more
    powerful.  Press the R2 Button to release the attack.
    
    THROW RUNE (U):  "MANA DRAIN."   Magnus will clutch his great sword
    tightly and pull in energy from the air.  This time, however, he will
    be draining preciously magic energy from nearby opponents.  This attack
    is good for those opponents who rely more on magic attacks than sword
    strikes so that they are unable to pull of rune attacks for a short
    while.  Press the R2 Button to release the attack.
    
    OBJECT RUNE (X):  Magnus will point his arm at the ground and will
    bring up debris from the ground that will vacuum up like a Hoover and
    juggle opponents up into the air like a cyclone.  This attack is great
    for taking on several opponents at one time or when you want to reach
    out and juggle someone.  Press the R2 Button to release attack.
    
    COUNTER RUNE (/\):   Magnus will pull back his great sword in a thrust
    stance and spew out a continuous strain of cold ice from his great
    sword at one or multiple opponents.  This attack has to be manually
    controlled to achieve maximum success.  This attack is excellent for
    bringing an opponents' energy down real fast!  Press the R2 Button to
    release the attack.

         Magnus had been trapped for nearly a decade near his crashed ship
    by some kind of curse for slaying the king of Argos.  He had lived the
    life of a sea captain, once commanding a fleet of vessels in the name
    of the Overlord Zaugg in the Eastern Kingdom of Cordene.  He should
    have died many times in combat, but the relic Bloodsong hanging from
    his leather strap about his neck always healed him from the brink of
    death...  Somehow, it fell from his neck in battle against the Argosian
    King as they exchanged death blows... and he was caught between life and
    death...  and undead with free will... but he was bound to the ship he died
    upon by some otherworldly curse...  Free now, by a power he did not know,
    Magnus journeyed to Argos to confront the daughter of its fallen king,
    Princess Keela!  He found her and attacked, demanding she give him

         Magnus felt important, known for his power to command the undead
    to do his bidding and for being commander of the Eastern Naives.  He
    remembered his father, drafted into the armies of Argos long ago, and
    his being left alone in battle after his platoon was ordered to attack
    an unbeatable force commanded by the now disbanded Caspian
    Legionnaires.  Argos sent his father to his death knowingly...  they said
    it was for strategic necessity.  Magnus always wondered why his
    necessity to have a father mattered nothing to Argos?  What about his
    father's need to live?  Magnus remembered a girl, Phade was her name,
    that he'd met after she'd run away from her orphanage.  She was
    training then to become an assassin, and she was quite renown now.
    Thought she might offer him advice on how to best hurt Argos...  When he
    found Phade, she demanded he prove himself worthy of her guidance... and
    so they fought!

    Keela's life when she was so protected...  Phade told Magnus that he
    would have to prove himself worthy before she would share such secrets...

    You have done well, Magnus, to come so far to find me.  It is a shame

    COMBO RUNE ([]):  "DAMAGE BONUS."  Stitch will arch his back and will
    emit a green wave on energy from his chest and then his daggers will
    start to glow a bright green.  During this time, Stitch's attacks will
    become more powerful and deadly.  Press the R2 Button to release the
    attack.
    
    THROW RUNE (U):  Stitch will yet again arch his back into the air and
    will send a barrage of rusty daggers from his chest high into the air.
    The daggers will lose air from the launch and will begin dropping down
    all around him.  This attack is best used against multiple enemies or
    to juggle any unsuspecting enemy for they will get taken into the air
    by the dagger and will also get sliced on the way back down.  This is
    one of the coolest looking attacks in the game.  Press the R2 Button to
    release the attack.
    
    OBJECT RUNE (X):  Stitch will immediately begin to spin like a top with
    his arms stretched straight out and his blades glowing green at a
    dizzying speed.  This attack is great to unleash on any unsuspecting
    attacker and the attacker can be juggled multiple times into the air
    when controlled manually.  Press the R2 Button to release the attack.
    
    COUNTER RUNE (/\):  This attack is the least impressive of the four
    Rune Attacks.  Stitch will spin like a ballerina and will shoot out a
    short range of daggers in a circular pattern.  This attack is best used
    when being ganged up on by multiple opponents.  Press the R2 Button to
    release the attack.

         Magnus stood before Stitch, his ghostly form shimmering in the

    sword raised, he commanded Stitch to serve him...  Magnus was lord of the
    undead and although Stitch had free will, he existed between the world
    of life and death... neither world took his accursed soul.  Magnus
    proclaimed Stitch, therefore, was undead and should serve him...
    Stitch's mind was twisted and he knew nothing of why he was what he
    was, but he did not intend to serve the undead lord...  He attacked!

         Stitch had assassinated Dagan per Magnus' command.  Now he was to
    find and slay the man in cell number 21 within the Prisons of Akrowla.
    Stitch thought how hard could it be to slay an imprisoned man?  As he
    opened the cell door, he was surprised to see how strong and big the
    inmate was...  The battle was joined!

         Stitch wanted so much to be someone, even if it meant creating a

    guilty of the murder of the King of Argos.  Magnus laughed and told
    Stitch that he killed the foolish king and that far more would be dead

         Stitch was tormented thinking he had ended the life of Dagan when
    he had so much love and passion in his heart.  Of course, Stitch
    defended himself from the vengeful man.  Death was easy for the living,
    something he seemed unable himself to attain.  Stitch regretted killing
    Dagan, but it was necessary.  He traveled to the Prisons of Akrowla,
    recalling legends of a man sent there as an orphan boy long ago with
    his parents murdered.  Stitch wondered if such a man might be open to
    him as a friend, for it seemed no one else was...  He met 21 who seemed
    unable to fathom anyone could be kind to him...  He said Stitch was a
    liar and was trying to deceive him for some tormenting goal...  He
    attacked Stitch!

         Shorestone Castle, capital of the Kingdom of Argos, stood before

    remember visiting the halls, dining with the King of Argos...  It was a
    long time ago...  He entered and asked for the king but was met by the
    Princess of Argos.  Stitch saw her and remembered her when she was a
    little girl...  He called her little Keel...  Keela looked upon Stitch,
    seeing his chest sewn back together from some deep gash...  His organs
    visible and heart pumping irregularly... She ordered the demon within his
    body to leave...  and she attacked!

    why it was that she should die, but Magnus answered that failure
    unpunished would breed weak followers of the undead...  Finding her

    Ruins to escape the world...  As he rested, he saw the wounds he suffered
    from his last fight healed before his eyes.  He though he must be
    immortal, a god of death and decay perhaps...  A ferocious ape came upon

         Stitch could only remember faint scenes and faces, but no name

    he was, where he came from, or anything at all of whom he ever known...
    He suffered amnesia since the day he regained life, apparently
    murdered...  His chest stitched back together after something killed him,
    ripping his chest open and scorching him with fire and lightning...
    Whomever he was, his life's end was violent... and his afterlife was to
    forever be scarred by the day he died.  He went to the watery graveyard
    of Magnus, Shipwreck Waters...  but he found a vicious ape lumbering

    suffered in his battle against Keela had healed.  He thought he must be

    Button to release the attack.
    
    OBJECT RUNE (X):  Jinn will pound her fist into the ground and will let

         Jinn's head ached...  Her arms felt as if they'd been beaten by a

    for days...  Her eyes were puffy...  Her feet were swollen...  Her skin was
    cold, so very cold...  Jinn had been summoned...  She was yanked from her
    blazing netherworld home within  Naraka, the hell of Barbaria...  She
    stood before a wizard who introduced himself as Corath...  He prepared

         Jinn heard the wishes of the wizard Corath and thought they were
    quite grandiose for a mortal...  He wanted the relics of song so he could
    be the strongest mortal with the most awareness before he cast the
    Spell of Divinity.  Jinn had seen such schemes before, however, and
    they always failed...  Somehow those visions of grandeur were beyond
    their grasp.  She was supposed to find a source of power great enough
    to sustain his divinity once he cast the legendary spell, he told her
    his master, Zaugg, had cast such a spell and drew his power from the
    land itself through Pillars of Corruption...  Jinn knew of this Zaugg,
    and she knew Corath was a pawn in his game...  She thought perhaps she
    could find and slay this Zaugg, take his power, and make the Pillars of
    Corruption rip a hole between the mortal and Narakan worlds...  She would
    then be able to rule the world as her own extension of hell...  She was
    full of herself when she was confronted by Eyara, nature's guardian!
    Eyara cursed the demon for invading her sanctuary and attacked!

    the hero of prophecy that lived in the Lost Fortress of Skurlok.  She
    found him, kneeling before the tombstone of his recently buried wife in
    prayer.  Jinn couldn't help herself and projected the image of his wife
    burning in the hell fires of Naraka...  Dagan's eyes were wide and he
    exclaimed, "NOOO!!!  IT CANNOT BE!"  Jinn peered over the tombstone
    down at Dagan and said, "Yes, it can be..."  She attacked!

    to control a demon...  She would get around to his orders when she felt
    like it...  She went instead to the Underground Sewers to hunt for sport
    the walking dead man known as Stitch...  She saw him and approached the
    cowering atrocity...  She said there was nothing to fear but death
    itself...  As she neared the man, she attacked!

         Corath told Jinn of the assassin Phade and how she'd failed to
    kill a warrior named Dagan he'd employed her for.  Jinn knew Phade; the
    assassin had sent many souls to Naraka in her exploits.  Deep into the
    Spider's Lair descended Jinn, carefully and silently as a cat hunting
    its prey.  She found Phade reading an alchemist's manual when she
    stepped into view.  Jinn told Phade that she'd killed so many and that
    although she thought it was just, Naraka had different ideas...  She said
    that it was time to die and suffer eternally.

         The last of the greenlings, Eyara, live deep in the Venomous

    When she found the woman, Jinn asked her what the qualifications were
    to be nature's guardian?  She mused that nature should have chosen
    someone stronger... for she was nature's destroyer... and she was quite
    confident the guardian would die shortly...  Eyara demanded Jinn leave
    her sanctuary and abandon her vile tasks within Barbaria, but Jinn
    answered with assault!

         Corath had told Jinn of a warrior in the glacial lands of Skurlok
    that he wished slain.  She found him whetstone in hand sharpening a
    huge axe.  The warrior beheld the demon and rose, telling her he was
    Dagan of the Clan Dolok.  Jinn was quick to reply that she was Jinn of
    the Infernal Hells of Naraka...  She laughed and said that Dagan declared
    his name and clan as if it made him better than the simpleton he was.
    She proclaimed titles were for men of low esteem that clung to group
    identity, for they were nothing themselves.  She hisses that Dagan
    would soon find his true calling however, being food for the worms.
    She attacked!

    was convinced it was really a doppelganger that had assumed his wife's
    form that laid buried outside, Jinn resumed her normal form.  Dagan was

    Corath ordered Jinn traveled to his lair within the Underground Sewers,
    where the air stank of the stench of refuse and decay.  Jinn's skin
    burned bright with infernal fir, trying to keep her warm in what she
    considered the frigid world of Barbaria.  She found Stitch and told him
    that at least he chose a home befitting who he was;  He was human
    refuse himself and lived amongst the throw away trash of the world...

    because he'd failed to slay both Dagan and the prisoner, 21, in
    Akrowla.  She thought at least killing Magnus might be fun...  She found
    the undead lord within Shipwreck Waters and approached him with a
    smile...  She asked if he'd been bad?  Before Magnus answered, she told
    him he had not been bad enough because he did not slay either 21 or
    Dagan...  She asked him what was done to little boys who didn't finish
    their assignments?  With a  grin, the demon told him they are killed

    She heard rustling in the bushes near the Forgotten Ruins.  She
    investigated and found a monkey who was clearly with the body of the
    ape.  Jinn's demon eyes saw through illusion immediately and could tell
    shape shifted beings on sight...  She sensed the ancient relic Bloodsong

    be moved by a singing taunt, so she sang of orphan boys who lost their
    parents who never loved them...  21 was hurt, for he never knew his
    parents... at least that he could remember...  The demon knew the hulking
    man's heart was childlike and was easily wounded and she liked to see

         Jinn was not far from the Prisons of Akrowla, home to an inmate
    known only by his cell number, 21.  Akrowla housed many inmates from
    minor to serious crimes, but 21 knew nothing of his crime and lamented
    that he didn't even have a name.  He'd seen so many come and go within
    the jail, some were tortured and others withered and died of disease or
    age.  He just wondered what would become of him.  Jinn went to 21 and
    told him that inaction was an action... and he did nothing when he saw
    unlawful and evil inflicted on his fellow prisoners...  She explained
    that he should have at least called for other deputies when guards
    abused their authority and hurt people.  Jinn  hissed that it was now

    suffering...  all hope abandoned... the city of the tormented... the 
    gates...
    oh the Eternal Gates!  Keela looked up toward the heaven and said her
    father could not be in hell, and screamed, "NOOO!!!!!"  Jinn appeared
    in a flash above the table.  She leaned down and looked into the seer's
    face.  The seer's fear was evident and she cautioned that she should
    not dally between the realm of the dead and the living.  Jinn's lips
    curled back as she hissed at the seer who fainted, slumping down in her

    A ghastly warrior broke into the throne room and called out that he was

    right up to her.  With her Narakan true sight, she saw Bloodsong merged
    within the heart of an ape that approached her curiously when she was
    in the Forgotten Ruins.  She called to the ape, ordering him to come to
    her.  It was scared, and watched her from a distance.  Jinn yelled at
    him, telling him that if he would not come to her then she would come
    to him.  She charged and struck at him.

         jinn remembered the Spider's Lair so long ago when it was still
    occupied by huge spiders and disease vermin.  She thought oddly
    appropriate that both the thieves' and assassins' guilds made it their
    home.  Jinn thought to collect poisons from the infamous assassin
    Phade's Lair within, so she might poison the well within Shorestone
    Castle and watch so many people die from the toxin.  Jinn was surprised
    to find two hulking gruff men there, guarding Phade's supplies...  She
    beset them with a frenzied assault!

         Corath was pleased as he finally cast his mana siphon spell,
    drawing the power from the Pillar of Corruption that now appeared
    within the Land of Desolation.  He was preparing to cast the Spell of
    Divinity when Jinn approached him.  He told the demon that he was busy,
    but Jinn did not seem to care.  She recognized Corath's life was
    intertwined with the Pillar's force... and although her summons bond
    forbade her from killing him, she could destroy the Pillar... even if its
    destruction meant Corath's death...  Jinn loved the loop-holes in divine

         The demon Jinn stepped into the red portal, wondering how it was
    she had not been returned to Naraka after her summoner perished.  She
    found herself standing atop a fortress, far away in the Dead Sea.
    Before her stood the mighty stone golem body that housed the spirit and
    mind of the arch mage Zaugg...  He spoke...  Jinn, you have proven most
    amazing...  in such a short time, you have mastered the mortal world,
    slain so many would-be heroes, and even ended your summoner's life.
    The Pillar of Corruption I created disrupts the mortal world, but also
    Naraka to seep into the land of mortality, which is why your return was
    not forced.  You are now free, Jinn, for that returning force can
    happen but once... and when it came it was corrupted and disbanded...  You,
    Jinn, are now a mortal demon...  ...and, therefore, will die forever as I
    kill you... Forget not, demon... I am Zaugg!!!

         Deep within the Spider's Lair, master assassin Phade mixed a
    poisonous concoction she felt would be more lethal than ever.  Phade
    pushed herself hard all her life, striving to be the best at everything
    she did.  As an assassin, efficient and swift life termination was her
    life's quest.  She began counting the seconds until she must add the

    Forestsong for her, and set out for the Prisons of Akrowla.  She
    reached the ancient jail, built deep into the earth...  So deep that it
    was heated by pools of lava at its base.  The ancient structure was
    abandoned.  The foliage all around was black as coal and broke as dried
    brittle wood.  There was no life, no birds, no animals, nothing...  this
    area was dead.  Phade found the stream nearby was dry, its bed covered
    in soot.  She entered the prison, encountering a wild man who attacked
    maniacally!

         Phade checked to ensure Keela was dead.  Guards rushed from all
    sides and captured Phade.  For them to know she was there suggested
    they were told...  She suspected this was all a setup by Corath.  They
    bound Phade and took her to the Prisons of Akrowla.  As they brought
    her into the jail, a fierce thunderous clap of thunder rumbled... not
    from above... but from the pits of jail.  The Earth shook and blood
    rained down from the sky...  Terrorized the guards fled...  They left Phade
    alone, and she ran deep into the jail where she found keys to unlock
    her bonds...  Soon there was no one left, save for a brute in cell number
    21.  Phade opened the door to the hulking man, but she attacked her!

         Returning to her home in the Spider's Lair, Phade collected poison
    and other supplies she'd lost when arrested by the would-be Argosian
    Guards.  She doubted they were really guards of Argos, or they'd been
    bribed to betray their princess.  The East and West have always warred
    and for armed guard of the West to be in the Eastern Capital, something
    was awry.  Warning rocks fell from their perch into a barrel of water...
    the splash meant someone triggered Phade's entry alarm...  She hid in the
    shadows and waited...  The demon Jinn entered her chamber and said aloud
    that she smelled  Phade...  Jinn emitted a fiery flame from her palm,
    lighting the dark chamber.  She saw Phade, no longer covered in
    darkness!  She hissed that there was no escaping and she attacked!

         Phade felt proud that her latest batch of poison was so effective
    in ending the life of the princess.  She mused if perhaps a bit more
    hemlock would have made it less painful, for she really did not want
    her prey to suffer.  She returned to the Land of Desolation to collect
    her earned Cloak of Invisibility from Corath as he promised for Keela's
    assassination.  She had been betrayed...  the foul demon Jinn greeted her

         Phade returned Forestsong to Eyara as promised.  Eyara thanked her
    and told her that while she was gone she fought Dagan of the Clan
    Dolok, but neither she nor Dagan could win.  She feared Dagan would
    return and maybe next time he would slay her.  Phade grinned and said
    that Dagan would not return anywhere...  She would hunt him now!  She
    tracked Dagan to his home in the Lost Fortress of Skurlok.  Dagan saw
    Phade and screamed, "Another assassin!"  He attacked!

    death of Keela.  Her poison ripped Keela's life from her tortuously.
    Phade, lost in thought, saw the Princess's dramatic death over and over
    in her mind.  She heard a voice behind her say, "I am Dagan of the Clan
    Dolok..."  She rolled ahead in a somersault, rising to her feet and
    twisting around with weapon drawn.  It was the ghost of Dagan!

    demons...  She turned to her only friend, if she could be called that, in
    the world... to Eyara.  Phade grew up in the Argosian Orphanage with
    Eyara, from 8 years old until Phade ran away at 15 to join the thieves'
    guild.  In those 7 years, Phade found comfort in her friend.  Phade
    protected her fiercely, once breaking the arm of a threatening boy.
    She regretted not killing him... for he taunted them later in life.  She
    found Eyara in the Venomous Swamp, her secluded retreat from the world
    she despised.  Eyara and Phade sparred to see how their skills compared

    Shackled legs, cuffed arms, gloved hands, and muzzled, Phade was led by
    a leather leash to a prison coach... and delivered to the Prisons of
    Akrowla.  As the guards unloaded her, a fierce thunderous clap of

    to tell her what happened.  Eyara suggested she go and find jinn in the
    Lower Darklands, for if a demon was afoot it would be there.  She found
    Jinn in the volcanic region of Barbaria.  Jinn hissed that her pupil
    Phade learned well how to kill and torture without remorse...  She said
    Phade would make an excellent demon, were she not damned to torment
    instead.  She reminded Phade that it was she who played with fire that
    burned her parents alive, not a faulty fireplace as she would tell the

    to send their spawn after her, and now he would suffer a horrible
    death.  She studied him as she lurked in the darkness.  A light purple
    aura surrounded his skin.  It was a brighter shade than the purple haze
    that permeated the air around a pillar with electricity arcing across
    its surface that stood defiantly near Corath.  She felt it was time.

         The heart of darkness typical to Phade was not without its weak
    points.  She retreated to the Lost Fortress of Skurlok, far away in the
    Arctic Mountains.  She recalled being a little girl, just turned 8
    years old.  Her parents were kind people of modest means, living in the
    old city of Rezz.  There was an argument she remembered, for she was
    never given the chance to say she was sorry...  She had stolen a slice of
    pie which she denied and her mother scolded her.  Phade was only 8, she
    remembered angrily.  That night their home burned to the ground; they
    said the fireplace was faulty.  Her mother and father died in the
    flames, trapped within their bedroom chambers.  Phade narrowly escaped
    herself, coughing as she did.  Phade cried...  Her sob was broken by a
    demon attacking her!

    She heard a voice, "Phade...Phade...fade away..."  Phade opened her eyes and
    found herself in the Prisons of Akrowla.  A pillar arcing with
    electricity next to herself!?  This nemesis Phade had a light purple
    aura around her... and the air everywhere was filled with a purple haze.

    and as she drew closer to the core of the haze she saw none other than
    Corath!  As if by destiny, she'd wandered into the foul wizard that set
    her on this course of despair that imbalanced Barbaria.  Phade decided
    to restore balance and kill Corath too!  ...As she moved in for the
    attack she saw a light purple aura surrounding him.  Near him was a

         Phade had never seen such an awful way to die as what befell

    him his eternal soul.  Like a cat, Phade wondered where this magical
    portal might lead.  She stepped cautiously  through the gate, finding
    herself on a stone bridge far above a tiny island somewhere in the Dead
    Sea.  Before her stood a giant stone golem, steam pouring from its
    joints.  It turned its head toward her and spoke...  I am Zaugg, master
    assassin Phade.  You are the most deadly I have seen, almost unhindered
    by emotional frailty.  What emotions you have, you suppress...  It has
    been enjoyable to watch your exploits.  But I ask how you dare confront

         the gong echoes throughout the prison, a warning to abandon the
    Prisons of Akrowla.  Wars came and passed, disasters befell Barbaria,
    and plagues swept over the lands... and never had the ancient gong been
    used.  A cataclysm had happened, and the guards fled Akrowla with
    abandon...  they left their possessions and just left...  Inmates were
    freed to escape the deep prison confines, even those far below the
    Earth near the volcanic lake that heated the aged prison.  Soon only
    the creaking sounds of the settling jail could be heard...  Then it was
    silent.  The behemoth and naturally strong inmate in cell #21 was
    alone, totally alone.  He waited, as he always had... and waited... and
    waited.  Days passed, and then his cell door opened.  A zombie stood in
    the jail doorway.  I am Stitch, he said... and you 21, are dead!

         21's eyes hurt from the sunlight, a pain that felt good to the

    He'd been locked in his cell for so very long... exactly how long he did
    not know.  He could remember, faintly, memories of playing at a beach
    as a child... years, maybe decades ago...  He wasn't even 10 years
    old...then.  21 had no name.  the guards called him by his cell number,
    and that was now who he was.  "21."  The undead man, Stitch, seemed to
    know who he was.  21 decided to track this Stitch, and found him in the

    what is there, but what one feels.  If 21 felt murder was within him,
    he should seek those who kill...  21 traveled to the Spider's Lair, home

    green aura trails as he runs and attacks. During this time, Mongo is
    able to move twice the speed when running or attacking.  Use this time
    to pull off quick and fierce combo against slower opponents.  Press the
    R2 Button to release the attack.
    
    THROW RUNE (U):  Mongo will crawl up into a ball and start spinning.
    Use this attack and control Mongo manually when facing off against
    multiple opponents as you leave white aura trails behind.  Good for
    juggling an opponent in the air several times as well.  Basically,
    Mongo becomes the bowling ball and the attackers are the pins!  Press
    the R2 Button to release the attack.
    
    OBJECT RUNE (X):  Mongo will raise his bare hands and smash them into
    the ground and the result will be a circular green earthquake that will
    knock any nearby opponents off their feet.  This is a great attack to
    use when you are totally surrounded.  Press the R2 Button to release
    the attack.
    
    COUNTER RUNE (/\):  Mongo will raise his arms into the sky and will
    produce a vacuum of debris from the ground where he stands.  Any enemy
    who approaches will be sucked into it and slammed into the ground.
    This is efficiently used against multiple attackers.  Press the R2
    Button to release the attack.

    sweet berries and saw their stems had turned black...  and two dead birds
    lay below.  They had become poisonous.  What there was to eat, Mongo
    ate.  Nothing remained to sustain Mongo's huge size.  He worried...
    Mongo thought he would have to leave his pleasant home in the jungle in

         Mongo returned to Shorestone Castle and entered the tomb of kings
    where he shed a tear before Princess Keela's sarcophagus.  He put a
    white flower atop its stone lid and he prayed for her, hoping she could
    forgive him for his rash death of her.  The demon Jinn had returned
    from mortal death and her fire burned bright, dancing across her flesh
    with the power of infernal heat!  She laughed at Mongo and said Keela
    would have been his ally had he not slain her... and now he was doomed
    to die and burn in the Hells of Naraka!  She told Mongo not to worry,
    for his torment would begin shortly...  She attacked!
    
    OPPONENT(S):  Jinn

         Mongo went to hide in the Underground Sewers, but he found the man
    with a stitch closed chest he had killed long ago.  The man, called
    Stitch, told Mongo that he was caught between the living and the dead...
    That he healed always back to existence...  Mongo was scared and thought
    such a foul creature should die!

         Mongo sought escape from the world in the woeful forest, but he
    triggered a trap...  A spiked ball fell from a tree, suspended by a rope...
    It swung down and slammed into Mongo, killing him instantly...  Time
    passed...  Mongo's hands twitched...  Life returned to him.  His eyes
    opened suddenly, in shock...  Mongo lived!  From the void of the dead
    Mongo came back!  Scared, but happy to live, Mongo ran southward into
    the Lower Darklands until he came upon a dark skinned demon!  Jinn
    hissed that the stupid ape did not realize his own immortality... but she
    said she knew how to kill him permanently and torture his soul
    throughout eternity...  She attacked!
    
    OPPONENT(S):  Jinn
    ARENA:  Lower Darklands

         Mongo tired of the demon Jinn's coming back from Naraka to plague
    him, he went to the Land of Desolation to kill her summoner... again!  He
    found Corath next to a pillar that was encircled with arcing
    electricity.  It pulsed with energy that made Mongo's hair stand on
    end...  He felt it was evil and somehow knew it was the thing that
    poisoned the berries he liked so much and sapped the life from his
    world...  He saw that it somehow brought Corath back from the dead...
    Mongo was of the land and he sensed this was very dark magic...  He could
    feel it draw the tides of Naraka across the void between life and death
    into the mortal world...  Mongo had to destroy it!
    
    OPPONENT(S):  Corath

         Mongo felt his life was assigned to him, that he'd made no
    decisions all this time...  He ran and ran, never really making choices
    but following some pre-ordained plan.  He thought maybe this Magnus
    could change his destiny by taking from him the curse of Bloodsong.
    When he reached Magnus he was saddened to find he proclaimed Bloodsong
    was his again, that he would cut it from the lifeless corpse of Mongo...
    Mongo saw a pillar that hummed with power, electricity arcing all
    around it.  Mongo somehow knew it was evil and should be destroyed!
    Again, Mongo fought in self defense!

         Mongo beat Jinn's life from her, leaving a pile of ash in her
    place.  She simply disintegrated under his might.  She spoke of her
    master, a wizard Corath that lived in the Land of Desolation.  Mongo
    sought him there, where he found him next to a pillar that was
    encircled with arcing electricity.  It pulsed with energy that made
    Mongo's hair stand on end...  He felt it was evil and somehow knew it was
    the thing that poisoned the berries he tried to eat and sapped the life
    from his world...  Mongo was of the land and he sensed this was very dark
    magic...  He could feel it draw the tides of Naraka across the void
    between life and death into the mortal world...  Mongo had to destroy it!
    He attacked Corath, hoping to reach and destroy the pillar!

         Mongo's life was somehow destined he thought for all of these
    things...  He was a little monkey that had become the great ape Mongo!
    He felt he had a purpose that was not yet fulfilled.  He entered the
    red portal, for he sensed he should...  He found himself on the other
    side atop a mighty stone bridge on an island far away...  Before him
    stood a stone man...  I spoke to him...  Welcome Mongo, I greet thee.  You
    have been fun to watch, little one.  A little monkey you were...  I
    watched you find Bloodsong and try to eat it...  I watched you transform
    into the strong and potent ape you are now.  You have killed so many
    and have found who you are...  it is a shame you came to me after so
    much, for your life must now end.  Do you know why the gods fear me,
    Mongo?  It is because...  I am Zaugg!!!
