1) Introduction
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

	Welcome to my Monster Encyclopedia FAQ for Castlevania: Circle of the Moon.
Although the game is not the best graphically stunning game out there, the
gameplay is top notch. One reason for the high gameplay is the many monsters in
this game. They will keep you hunting for items, cards, experience, and even
themselves for a long time.

	I made this FAQ to help many people with questions, such as "What items does
(insert monster here) drop?" and "How much experience does (insert monster
here) give?" After much research, and a lot of time(hey, I'm still on
VampireKiller Mode) I've decided to make an FAQ to help people out.

2) Updates
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

9/3/01-Submitted Version 1.2, with Castle areas done.

6/23/01-Finished Version 1.1 of this FAQ. Hopefully, not too many more versions
are needed, since this one covers pretty much everything except detailed Castle
Areas descriptions.

3) Boss Encyclopedia
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Every once in a while, you'll run into a boss. They're much bigger and stronger
than usual enemies, but the experience and rewards are also much bigger. Here's
a list of each boss's name, location, Hit Points, and Experience Given.

4) Monster Encyclopedia

Yes, the "meat" of this FAQ. I have compiled a list of many facts about every
single monster in the game. If I missed anything or something is incorrect, or
there's an error, please email me about it, and I'll fix it and add you in the
credits.

Geez! That was a long list to type. One side note:

Completing the whole Battle Arena will earn you a whopping 315,722 experience
points
and the "Shinning" armor(game typo).

Hope you appreciate the list...

5) Castle Areas
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Traveling through the entire castle of Dracula will be very tedious, and you'll
pass a lot of areas along the way. This section will give you an idea of what
you're up for in each area. Some are connceted to others, so don't get the idea
they're all spread out. You'll be returning to many of them a lot, but the area
name won't appear like they did the first time you entered the area.

Catacomb-The first area of the game, the monsters here are very weak-but so are
you. Mostly made up Skeletons, Bone Heads, Poison Worms, and Gremlins, you
should be able to level up quickly. Watch out for the Earth Demons, though.

Abyss Stairway-A long, vertical hallway, mostly made up of ledges and Bone
Heads. Climb to the top-there's no where else to go.

Audience Room-The "main" part of the castle. It connects to many other areas.
You'll find yourself returning here a lot.

Outer Wall-Not really too big of a area, but it is littered with Devil Towers
and and Axe Armors. Be on your toes with electric skeletons-they can take a big
chunk out of your HP if you're not at a high enough level.

Machine Tower-Use gears and your instincts to survive Fox Hunters, Heat Shades,
and Medusa Heads. Good luck stay on the moving platforms and dodging attacks at
the same time.

Eternal Corridor-A very long, horizontal hallway littered with the strongest
enemies you have seen yet. This area marks the halfway point of the game-that's
not many save areas ahead, and the enemies are going to get much tougher.

Chapel Tower-A large, verticle tower. Easily one of the biggest areas of the
game. There's only 3 save points here-and hundreds of enemies. Be cautious.

Underground Gallery-Be prepared for poison fun! Stock up on antidotes and
charge through the first of 3 underground areas.

Underground Warehouse-You'll have to solve many box puzzles in this area. The
good news is that once you've solved them, they stay solved-permantly. Watch
out for those beam-shooting Holy Armors!

Underground Waterway-The last and perhaps hardest of the Underground areas.
Make sure you have the cleansing item from Death to easily travel through this
area. You'll be going up against water and ice creatures here-if you get
frostbite, thaw out quickly!

Observation Tower-Packed with incredibly strong monsters and only one save
point, the Observation Tower is the hardest area of the game. Not only is it
huge, but around every corner is a powerful demon. Enter at your own risk.

Ceremonial Room-The place where you're final showdown with Dracula takes place.
Defeat him and save your Master!

Battle Arena-This area is hell. No magic, and you can't heal or take a break in
the 17 rooms. However, your efforts will be rewarded with the Shining Armor,
the game's best armor, if you can brave the entire arena.
