                                    | i. BATTLING |-[BTLG]
                                    '-------------'
    
     Battling is surprisingly simple in this game. After an enemy has been chosen
     as a target, a 'status screen' shows up that tells who's doing the attacking,
     who's being attacked, the Hit %, the damage that will be dealt, HP values, 
     and such.
    
     One of the tabs at the bottom if 'IBS', which is the main method of attack.
     This can be toggled off with the R Shoulder button, but only on the status
     screen. This has two outcomes:
    
     * Turning it on allows for first-person mode, and the player can manually
       evade the enemy's attacks. The easiest method of doing this is rotating
       the d-pad in circles or loop-de-loop patterns, which ensures beyond most
       chances that no damage is sustained. This also makes the difficulty very
       easy, but later on when enemy numbers are 15+, that difficulty won't be
       missed.
    
     * Toggling the IBS off means that attacks are based off the "Hit %" stat
       displayed on that battle status screen. Mathematically calculating the
       attacks makes for faster battles (slightly), but also means that ally
       positioning is far more important. The battle also becomes unbearably
       hard later on, when 15+ enemies can attack in one turn. Without the
       manual evade...well...
    
     When an ally chooses an enemy to attack, in that first-person mode (if
     IBS is turned on), a new screen comes up. It contains a background, the
     enemy mech moving around, and a reticle (crosshairs) that the player's
     to move. A time limit appears for the player to move the reticle over
     the mech and press the action button (A) to fire. If it's on the mech
     it will inflict damage shown on the status screen; if not, the enemy'll
     evade. There's also a tiny red 'dot' that appears on the mechs, and this
     signifies the weak spot. If the reticle happens to fire on it, it'll do
     about 150% damage. The size and number vary for the enemies.
    
     ---
    
     One more thing. Attacks use up Ammo, Spirit, and Energy. Ammunition is
     how many times the attack can be fired before it can't be used; Spirit
     is a requirement that comes through defeating enemies (+5 per) or via
     storyline events; Energy starts out at maximum and decreases as some
     skills use it up. If there's a shortage in any of these categories, use
     a mech's "Supply" ability to refill all to full.

                                    '-----------------'
    
     During the course of Scene 12, the player has a 'hidden' option to change the
     storyline completely. The name is "Between Good and Evil," and during this
     scenario, there are a bunch of unmanned drones let loose and Cage's team has
     to kill some with temporary allies, the Mars Angels. Here's where the path'll
     split: if Cage's team kills the most, this leads to 'Path A'; if the Angels
     destroy the most, this leads to 'Path B'. Note that the game doesn't describe
     the paths like this, but it's for clearer reference. From Chapter 14 on, the
     scenario lineup will change like so:
    
      [PATH A]                                [PATH B]
    
       15) The Darkness That Came From Light   15) Cracks
       16) Uncertain Future                    16) Paradise Lost
       17) Rebirth                             17) A Bow Drawn
       18) Dark Half                           18) Hearts in Harmony, Hearts in
       19) Clawing the Red Earth                   Strife
       20) Missing Line                        19) Waves
       21) A Faint Light From the Depths       20) Island of Destiny
       22) Heaven-Bound Wings                  21) Nosferatu
       23) Fulfillment of a Promise            22) Violated Wishes
       24) Pharsti                             23) God Save Us!
       25) Reunion                             24) Promised Reunion
    
     Both paths have one extra 'scenario' that is purely story text after the
     end of the game, but regardless, Path A has the most chapters with twenty-
     -six.

    Reg. LEV A        | $300  |  * Defeating enemies is the main source of making
    Reg. LEV B        | $300  |    cash. This is also the ONLY consistant way of
    Ned LEV           | $500  |    getting capital, so even when the missions call

    LEV A a           | $800  |    off the surface if it's easy pickins.
    LEV B a           | $800  |
    LEV C a           | $800  |  * Sometimes after battle an amount of capital is
    Unmanned B        | $800  |    earned. This is rare and often only after some
    Cyclops           | $800  |    conditions have been met, so don't count on it
    Mummy Head        | $800  |    being a steady paycheck or anything.
    Bizac             | $1000 |

    Ifrit             | $2000 |
    Scarmiglione      | $2000 |  * All enemies listed have the same drops, even if
    Grafficane        | $2000 |    they are unmanned or something. Fr'instance, the
    HarutMarut        | $3000 |    unmanned Grafficane would have the same $$ drop

                                |  v. Tips and Tricks |-[TPTR]
                                '---------------------'
    
     <> Killing all enemies really benefits a person in the long run, especially
        when the game pumps up the 'difficulty' and sends in a lot more enemies
        than usual. This is also a constant source of cash and OFs only gain up'd
        stats through battle, so there's no reason to leave any unless a specific
        objective is on a timer.
    
     <> Boss (special) units are a very easy source of experience, and attacking
        one is basically a guaranteed level-up if an ally's lower in level. This
        is very important for units who've been lagging behind, as even craptastic
        attacks like 'Handgun' get 100+ EXP.
    
     <> Always scan a new battlefield for an 'L Server' (local server). Moving an
        OF to this space will give new offensive abilities and/or passive traits
        to those crafts at the end of battle. These are also MISSABLE and since
        uploading's the only way to make OFs learn new abilities, why would you
        miss out?
    
     <> When in 'IBS' mode, whether attacking or being attacked, move the reticle
        (crosshairs) around in circles or the periphery of the screen. This will
        often evade normal enemy attacks, but for boss enemies, more rapid tactics
        will probably be called for (quicker circles).
    
     <> Unless you know what you're doing, or the walkthrough says so, never leave
        all regular enemies alone and just attack a boss. Countless times, there'll
        be another phase right after that with new enemies, and the old ones aren't
        going to leave for it. To reduce the burden, at least make an effort to get
        SOME foes off the field.

     Just a few things about this stuff:
    
      * It's spoiler-free for the most part. No big plot events are revealed and
        I'm not going to really bother touching base on the dialogue that happens
        in between fights...not much, anyway. Just a scene setup at the beginning.
    
      * You don't have to follow my instructions exactly, mostly because strategy
        RPGs don't have one way to win. But, I write in a way that collects all of
        the items/skills, so those will be used in further scenes.

     After some scenes on the Bonaparte III spaceship, the game's protagonist is
     introduced (Cage) and he finds himself within a mysterious LEV mech. Its AI
     system notifies him an enemy is nearby and it's time to go mano e mano.
    
    
      o--------------------------------------------o
      | VICTORY CONDITIONS: Destroy Black Frame    |
      | FAILURE CONDITIONS: Cage's Frame Destroyed |
      o--------------------------------------------o        .------.-------.-----.
                                                            |  PWR | RANGE | HIT |

     | Black Frame       | 01 | 2500  | | Venom Rain        | 1250 |  2~5  | +10 |
     '-------------------'----'-------' '-------------------'------'-------'-----'
    
     This is the first battle of the game, so it's, of course, a semi-tutorial on
     playing. Select Cage's (blue) frame and move it to a grid square adjacent to
     the red (enemy) unit. It doesn't matter if you attack from behind, front, or
     the sides -- there is no extra damage dealt from different vantage points. A
     menu will come up; choose 'Attack' to bring up a skill select screen. At the
     current time, only Rusty Lancer is available to be used. Select the enemy as
     the target.
    
     At this point, first-person mode will come up ("IBS") and the player can move
     a reticle (crosshairs) on the enemy, which will be trying to evade the coming
     attack. Press the A-button when the black frame is in the crosshairs to knock
     it around and inflict damage; if it's not in the crosshairs when A-button's
     pressed, the target evades the damage.
    
     Note that there is a little 'dot' on the enemy when in the crosshairs? This's
     of little importance in a general sense, but if you move the reticle's center
     on it and press the A-button, a critical hit will be dealt, inflicting around
     150%+ more damage than usual.
    
     Either way, the frame's turn will come and Cage will have to try his hand at
     evasion. This is, quite simply, quite simple! Unless the "IBS" is turned off
     on accident (Press left shoulder button at matchup screen to toggle back on),
     the enemy cannot hit 100%.
    
     Okay, onto evading -- this is done by moving the reticle, which represents
     the frame Cage is in, around out of the enemy's path. It will "shoot" reticles
     of its own in an attempt to lock-on before the timer is up. Simply move Cage's
     reticle around in circles or on the periphery/border of the window to evade
     the black frame's attacks. It takes a bit of practice, but once you've gotten
     it down, the entire game's a lot easier.
    
     Back on the battlefield screen, choose a vacant square with the A-button and
     select "Phase End" to switch to the enemy's turn. Two hits will kill Cage,
     but three hits to the black frame ends the battle. Whew!
    
     ---
    
     Afterwards, Mars' gravitational field takes hold and sends the LEV down, down
     to the red planet... Save if you want and continue.

     After some hijinx at the Hellespontos prison, everyone escapes with the help
     of a new friend -- Deckson! But, as usual, there are some police LEVs that're
     hellbent on stopping the escape. JAILBREAK!

     Two enemies to take care of this time, but they're far away from Cage this
     time around. I'll let you in on a tip: enemies can move and attack only when
     they can get close enough to do an adjacent attack; they CANNOT move and do a
     long-range attack. Thus, choose to "Phase End" immediately and let them come
     towards you, giving you the first attack of sorts. Then, use Tear Bullet (the
     long-range attack) and make them waste _another_ turn approaching! No matter
     the route taken, attacking and evading are the same as usual and won't change
     too much... Just make sure the crosshairs are on any part of the enemy when
     the A-button's pressed to inflict the damage. Luckily, Cage's LEV will be a
     lot faster than the enemy, resulting in less time for them to try and lock-on
     with attacks.
    
     When the two enemy vehicles are scrapped, the battle changes to a second and
     last phase...

     There are now eight enemies here, but three new allies have appeared! Deckson
     has some allies who've came to help him out, and the player can control all
     three of their LEVs, now. I'll introduce 'em:
    
     * Dreizehn (Razma) - Long-range capabilities, sucks in close-range combat
     * Caliburnus (Semyl) - Medium at all combat types, but has poor movement
     * Blade (Phil) - Has decent move and healing ability; sucks at fighting...
    
     The 'objective' is to move Phil's vehicle Blade west to that green-glowing
     tile that marks the exit. However, you'll also remember that killing enemies
     will also win this thing...and defeating enemies is about the only way to get
     extra upgrade cash in this game, so defeat all of them!!! Pay attention to
     the surrounding geography and take advantage of the DEF and/or ESC bonus that
     it gives (buildings give the best).
    
     Here's another tip you won't get: Cage's LEV can only be upgraded through the
     heat of battle! So, let him take care of the enemies in the east and keep 
     Blade on-hand to heal up, if you're still getting the bearings of evasion. 
     Just know that Blade's not meant for fighting and has poor stats in that area,
     making the battle timer longer than normal (but that's about all).
    
     Oh, and Deckon's Sec. LEV A vehicle will 'shoot' crosshairs at a faster rate
     and have a better chance at catching Cage if he's slow at getting outta the
     way.
    
                                o---------------------o

     ---
    
     Afterwards, it's off to Deckon's BIS base...hopefully, with $2000 earned in
     the previous encounters... Use the 'Garage' function to upgrade the LEVs
     health, ammo, weapon power, etc. If you want a good guideline:
    
     Dreizehn   -> Laser Blade, Long Rifle
     Caliburnus -> Laser Blade, W Beam Cannon/Missile
    
     Don't bother with Blade, since it's attack power will always suck compared
     to the rest...and you can only do two upgrades with that prospective $2000.
     Just play on each ally's strengths for the best effect.
    
     REMEMBER: Vehicles listed under 'Garage' will _NOT_ upgrade in battle! Ever!

     It appears that UNSF is attacking a hospital, as Phil says. And, despite what
     you may think, Phil is indeed male -- yeah, weird! Either way, it's off to a

     Yukito will join this battle with his own mech, Justeen. It excels at kicking
     stuff and close-range fighting mostly; its 'Handgun' attack is incredibly bad
     and weak, doing pitiful damage throughout the game. Still has its uses, to be
     sure... Edge, driven by Deckson, also appears here, and is Blade-like but has
     a better weapon (it can refill ammo and such with 'Supply' command). Razma is
     not present, however.
    
     In the northwest corner's the hospital, and to start off, Edge's supposed to
     move there. Move in that direction just so you're near to the fighting, and
     destroy the enemies that approach. Leave one enemy alive, though, so Edge'll
     be able to find the destination. Any enemies left standing will appear for
     the second phase of the battle. But, if you kill all of them before Edge 
     gets to the parking lot, you lose out on the $1000 extra bonus reward at the
     end.
    
     Once the hospital's reached or all enemies are destroyed, Ned appears to do

     Still kinda easy, especially if you started the turn by reaching the hospital
     or killing the last enemy -- everyone will have their turns! Razma will have
     one regardless, but... Either way, Ned attacks faster than any normal enemy,
     so if you STILL haven't gotten the hang of evading (move the reticle in very
     fast circles!!!), keep Blade on-hand to do some healin'. 
    
     Attacking Ned with any vehicle is basically a guaranteed upgrade, so crappy
     skills like 'Handgun' are good in this case for squeezing experience out for
     those purposes. Ned can do some damage, but if there are a few people nearby,
     there's really no reason to fret. Bum-rush the fool! If you evade all of his
     attacks, he won't be able to use his 'Death Rave' attack which requires +5
     Spirit.

     Note that the $1000 only comes if Edge went to the parking lot in the first
     part of the battle. The supply pack comes as a reward no matter what. Oh, and
     if you're wondering what to upgrade on Justeen now that he's a permanent part
     of the BIS crew, go for close-range skills. Don't bother upgrading Handgun,
     'cause it's a piece of crap and always will be no matter what.

     Ares, Cage, and Myona are now official BIS members! Deckson suggests going to
     meet the organization's main financial backer, but there's some disruptive

     First turn, head northeast to close the distance between the factory entrance
     tile. Turn #2 has the rest of the allies coming in, with Cage stepping back
     into his own LEV (Ned disappears for a moment). The allies on the eastern edge
     of town (Razma, Semyl, Yukito) should fortify themselves in some buildings and
     wait for the enemy to approach. Try to take out the Reg LEV B's first, since
     their attacks are far better than the other types (plus they have same HP).
     You don't lose out on any items if you kill the enemies before Edge reaches
     the green tile, mind you.

     A new character (Mebius) will show up in her L&A (land and air) LEV, which
     is similar to Cage's in that its skills go rise in power when achieving an
     upgrade in battle. She's mostly a long-range attacker, and her Elfin Bow is
     a very fearsome ability...for the enemy. ^__~
    
     Ned will get +5 Spirit automatically, allowing him to use 'Death Rave' right
     off the bat, so you'll want to let him approach an ally and gang up on him
     when possible. But, those Unmanned A enemies are pieces of crap and eat damage
     like it's chocolate-flavored, so build up some extra cash taking those out if
     possible. They just happen to be a little smaller and faster than normal mechs
     but that shouldn't factor in too much. Since Ned'll probably attack the east
     allies first, move Mebius/Edge down a bit so that everyone can do long-range
     projectiles in a mini pre-emptive.

     Attacking the kids' frames will result in a game over, so don't bother just
     yet. Have everyone head straight north for two turns and wait; on the third

     disable the bombs.

     Warren's mech, Durandal II, is a close-range fighter and is a heckuva good
     one at that. Its 'Absolute' attack is a powerful physical attack that's also
     got a chance of stunning the enemy, and he can use it every turn, too! The
     'Avelcaine' ability is even better, and can probably OHKO most of the enemy
     LEVs he encounters.
    
     To complete the objectives, move the Durandal II next to one of the three
     'enemy' LEVs to disable the bomb; then, attack that vehicle to destroy it.
     Simple as, huh? If an enemy moves next to Warren, he'll also disable it, and
     that's reason enough to put him in the fray where he belongs. Ned also appears
     at this second phase, but attacking him will result in a game over if all LEVs
     aren't bomb-free, so stave off until then.
    
     When all LEVs are destroyed, Ares shows up in a new OF called 'Vjaya.' It's
     got two long-range and close-up attacks, so it should be fairly versatile for
     battle now. Note that its weapon skills only raise through battle upgrades!

     The above (^) enemies will join Ned, who receives +10 Spirit to start off the
     battle. Given the addition of two new powerful L&A mechs, the enemies should
     be quick to die, given that Reticulator, Avelcaine, Elfin Bow, and similar
     ones can basically OHKO. As before, attacking Ned is basically a guaranteed
     upgrade, so if you surround him with agile LEVs, you can use crap attacks
     like Blade's Beam Cannon and Yukito's Handgun to leech easy experience for
     themselves. Ned basically relies on Death Rave (close-range), so combat it
     with long-range strikes.
    
     ---
    
     Once Ned is defeated, Cage's LEV will become 'Testament,' an L&A type that is
     better than before. It should've been kinda obvious if you consider how all
     the other types use battle upgrades, and Cage's LEV was a Land type.... Oh,
     well! He's now got the 'Ray Disaster' ability as well, which will have the
     same attack as the Soulshooter ability (+5 for each battle upgrade).

     type, because, as said, they upgrade through battle experience. This is the
     same for all L&A types, remember?

     Twede, Robin's secretary, divulges the man behind the UNSF attacks. As this

     Cage will be in Blade, not Testament, so that's a small disadvantage to work
     with. To get the upper hand, move Blade southwest away from the 'arc' of foes
     to draw them towards the allies. Only one enemy should attack (Durandal II)
     if no one else moves, and then it's just time to kick some UNSF tail, y'know
     what I mean? Take out the LEV B types first since they've got longer range
     capabilities and concentrate on the others. Elfin Bow/Absolute really shred
     stuff here.
    
     Everyone beats it out of the 'burbs afterwards, but it's not long 'fore Razma
     calls them to the downtown area for a disturbance. Cage'll be in Testament
     this time around...

     All enemies are souped-up now, but like any enemy you'll fight, their attacks
     can be evaded just by moving in rapid circles during battle. Don't let 'em
     intimidate you! The Bizac and Bizac S are controlled by story characters --
     Nadia and Bolozof, respectfully -- so they'll gun for your demise a lot more
     readily than the other enemies. Bolozof won't advance until the other enemies
     are defeated, also, which saves the player a little grief. Attacking any of
     the special vehicles is also a guaranteed level-up, so this is a perfect time
     to use Blade/Edge/Justeen's poorest abilities to ciphon some EXP from 'em.
     Fortify south of the street by the orphanage and lure Bolozof near, then use
     your arsenal to wipe him out before he gets a shot off. He'll flee battle when
     his HP gets in critical condition so there's no $$$ to be obtained.

     There's another anti-tax demonstration and BIS thinks that there might be
     another USNF attack on the rally. Everyone goes to investigate and, what do
     ya know, there IS another one!

     There are civilian LEVs here (2000 HP) that can basically take two hits from
     any attacker before they're gone. Send Warren & Yukito south to where bridge
     area, where they can (hopefully) draw attacks off the civilians, who will go
     in the 'third' part of the turn. They're all heading towards that bridge area
     so make sure to take out those long-range attackers! They won't move from
     their positions, so if you inch inside their projectile range, they won't get
     any attacks off. Yukito and Warren both excel at close-range attacks, so it
     shouldn't be too hard to take out two mechs by the second turn.
    
     Speaking of which, on turn two, Pharsti calls Cage's attention to a server in
     the east part of town. Apparently, going to that space allows new attacks to
     be uploaded. This, by far, is one of the most important ways to upgrade the
     mechs' attacks -- in fact, it's the only way to get new ones of your own
     volition! Only OFs can upload the stuff, though, so that means Vjaya, Durandal
     II, Orcrist, and Testament are available. Vjaya's the closest and has the best
     range, so take care of some enemies before going down there.
    
     You've probably realized that saving the civilians isn't necessary; however,
     each that escapes adds $1000 to the scene-end reward list. When all of the
     enemies are defeated or all civilians escape, the next phase begins.

     These guys appear at the top of the map, which means you'll probably have a
     shortage of people up there (if you defended the bridge). If that's the case,
     drive south and band up in the middle of town, drawing the enemy closer to
     you. This also helps you get a closer vantage point to that L Server, if it
     hasn't been tapped for secret abilities yet. DO THIS BEFORE YOU DEFEAT THE
     BIZAC S MECH!!!!

     The 'Nail Laser' is a new attack for Testament, and 'Gauntlet' is a new skill
     for the Durandal II. Far as I know, the $5000 gil is based off of how many of
     the civilian mechs are saved. Get zero, you don't get any extra cash. If the
     L Server's skills in the previous skirmish were not obtained, shut your game
     off and DO IT AGAIN. <whipcrack>

     The target is the upper-right (NEmost) glowing tiles, which is the right way
     to enter the facility. Don't bother trying any others.
    
     This can either go one of two ways. First, all enemies are stationary and,
     since this missions takes place under the cover of night, they won't see the
     ally LEVs as they move. One can get through without fighting ANY enemies. So,
     that's the route I'll suggest. The alternative is to fight the enemies one by
     one, gathering three spaces outside of their range and attacking in one swarm.
     If an enemy spots an ally and its turn comes around, it's game over.
    
     Remember, the 'visual' range is three grid spaces, so as long as you keep out
     of that, you can't be seen by anything. Don't pass up this opportunity to make
     some extra cash, though -- each mech drops $800. The first stage ends when the
     factory door's reached.
    
     Yeah, it's that easy.

     This part of the battle changes parts of the story (slightly) down the line,
     but I don't want to ruin anything, really... As the story sets up, Bolozof's
     expecting the factory to blow up, so the option to save Nadia comes up -- and
     this is decided by if you defeat her in battle or not. Just know that if you
     wreck her Bizac, she'll lend a little aid down the line...
    
     Anyway, Blade's flanked by enemies, so move it towards the left field boundary
     to keep pursuers in fewer numbers (should only be two). As we all know, Blade
     is not made for fighting, so fleeing is the best option -- and, luckily, it
     can reach the bottom of the screen without having to initiate battle once.

     As Cage is notified on the fifth turn, the factory is set to explode on Turn
     #16 (already mentioned above, but eh...). This means Blade has to get to the
     bottom even if all enemies are defeated, so make sure to move that down. Try
     to hold off any enemies that may impede its progress towards the lower-left
     part of the screen.

     LEVs' health, which should get upgraded every once in awhile, too.

     The gallows are the three-colored objects all along the main north/south
     street everyone starts at. Also note that L Server off to the side. Vjaya is
     the best selection to freeing the hostages, since it's got great movement and
     can handle enemies with a bit of nonpareil (lower timer). On turn three, both
     Warren and Yukito will show up in the western region, giving some added fire-
     -power in the middle sector. You'll also notice that one of the upper LEVs is
     commanded by Frazer; attack him for better-than-usual EXP points. Testament
     will get +10 Spirit if you defeat all enemies before 'robbing' the gallows,
     by the way. The next phase begins when all hostages are rescued.
    
     Make sure you free all ten hostages before Turn #10, if you want to go on
     Path A! You must do this!

     The enemies appear in the upper-right patch of greenery. As before, whittle
     down Bolozof and Amante's HP by using crappy attacks, giving everyone a share
     of the experience. Power up Avelcaine, Bloodsucker/Reticulator, and any other
     attack by smashing a few crappy mechs, then unleash on Bolozof. Same fight as
     before, basically, with fewer minions. A critical with Avelcaine can wipe out
     the Bizac S in one shot. =)

     the sixth skill for Cage and it'll be listed on the second page. Oh, and if
     you haven't been upgrading the 'Shell' part in the garage, know that this is
     the craft's defense not 'shells' as in ammunition. Don't get 'em confused! :p

     Edge has to upload some information and that'll take ten turns to complete;
     thus, this is sort of like a "protect the hostage" mission... Keep Blade near
     Deckson, so that if an enemy gets close, they may at least go after the worst
     vehicle around (and for healing also). Try to give Durandal II/Yukito some of
     the kills, so they'll be able to use their best skills ASAP. It takes about
     three turns for the enemies to near close enough to attack, so that's seven
     turns of defense at minimum. But dig in as hard as the weapons allow, because
     during Enemy Turn #5, two more enemies appear from the west side. If you get
     flanked, this won't go very well...
    
     Also don't forget that there is an L Server in the SW part of town, so once
     the situation's under control, send a fast-mover down there before all ranks
     have been turned to space dust. When all enemies are dead, the mission ends.

     Geyser's a new attack for Vjaya, while BulletEndure is a 'passive' ability
     for Durandal II which, if I'm not mistaken, raises defense when bullet-type
     attacks (projectiles?) are used. Oh, and that $1000 is only received if all
     enemies are defeated, NOT if the ten-turn limit is reached.

     Yes, there are fourteen enemies to sort through, but as evident, their HP is
     half of the normal fleets. Luckily, their skills are all long-range, meaning
     they can't attack without moving into range first. It's just Testament and 3
     'NPC' vehicles of the Mars Angels, who are helping to clear the monsters in
     the south.
    
     The story splits a bit here, depending on who kills the most enemies. This
     sends the story down different routes (duh), so if you want to do a slopjob
     and let the ladies clean house here, that'll reflect later on. Just a head's
     up. =)  If you didn't save all hostages in Scene #10, you can't get the 'A'
     Path.
    
     Testament starts near an L Server, so there's absolutely no reason to miss it
     here. Mebius and Warren will show up on Turn #2, which evens the ally numbers
     out. Defeat more enemies than the Angels to get some information from Palme
     at the end; you won't get anything if they defeat the most. Shouldn't be too
     hard since more enemies start by your party.

     SSA1 is a 'passive' ability for Orcrist, which will automatically refill some
     HP if Mebius' mech is hurting. 'Replenish' is the new Vjaya command, which is
     the same as Edge's Supply ability. It refills ammunition, energy, etc. If you
     payed attention, it's also clear that some LEVs will have new abilities now,
     being:
    
     * 360 Attack (Caliburnus)
     * Bouquet (Dreizehn)
     * L-Blade Kick (Justeen)

     Quite a distance to travel to find enemies here. Go west along the southern
     city limits to lure the enemies down while everyone fortifies their positions
     in the building panels. When the enemy number's been reduced to a few, send
     an OF up to that L Server panel. If you miss it this time, you'll have a shot
     in the next scene, but who wants to wait 'til then? At Lv. 16, Nail Laser can
     just barely OHKO an enemy mech, so give Cage some early kills to cut through
     the masses (or use Avelcaine, which can OHKO also).
    
     The mech values, including earned Spirit and used energy, will be the same
     for the next battle, so make sure everyone's got their best abilities powered
     up so you can get a leg-up on the competition. This also means KO'd units are
     going to stay that way for Round 2 (I think), so 'Restart' if your best ones
     get dumped on.

     Comet is a new attack for Testament, so it'll probably be on page two of the
     'Status' tab. Slashboom is the fifth attack for the Durandal II, and is full
     of power. If you didn't get these this time, they'll be available in the next
     chapter as well. There's just no accessing the Garage until then...

     As Deckson talks Mebius down from her rooftop despair, there's a battle going
     on below. Obviously, Orcrist won't be participating in the fight. But, as the

     This first stage is run-of-the-mill destruction, with the allies completely
     surrounded by the enemy forces, south of the television headquarters. Since
     the next phase gravitates away from this area, make sure to tap the L Server
     for the Comet/Slashboom abilities, if you didn't get 'em already. This will
     be the last chance!! As for battle tactics, well, everyone will probably go
     after Blade, so think about moving it away from the action (if you can keep
     your health in good...health) to spread the targets around.
    
     One good thing about this battle is that the stats -- HP, Spirit, Energy used
     and such -- are all the same. This means anyone can start off with Avelcaine,
     Nail Laser, Bounder...you get the drift. Heal up your crafts when one enemy
     is left, so you don't take on the next phase looking like an bunch of army
     hospital patients.

     When all enemies are dead, Bolozof emerges from the headquarters to do battle
     with everyone -- and he gets +10 Spirit. This means he will gun for the worst
     LEV with Lunatic Sin, so get distance Blade/Caliburnus from him and surround
     the Bizac S with faster characters like Yukito and Ares. Draw out the showdown
     with crap attacks (Handgun, long-range fighters' close-range attacks...) 'fore
     you defeat Bolozof.
    
     After that, the third waltz comes...

     Yeah, the good doctor's monstrosity is here now and is ready to destroy the
     television station for ruining his reputation (among other things). He's got
     some unmanned airborne LEVs in tow, which now have a Missile attack. But, do
     not let his HP fool you -- he's like any regular enemy. Your characters, who
     still have their Spirit levels by the way, should be able to unleash their
     best and brightest abilities on contact -- Nail Laser, Avelcaine, Bounder,
     Reticulator, Bouquet, 360 Attack, R-Blade Kick all make this an easy victory.
    
     The 'protect the station' request is actually very easy to accomplish, as the
     behemoth HarutMarut can simply be surrounded on all (4) sides to prevent more
     movement. Use your best close-range attackers to do that job, and move anyone
     with an attack range of 4(+) outside HarutMarut's range and bombard that way.
     The guy's got three large 'critical hit' targets, too. The only thing that
     really distinguishes him from other mechs is that both his attacks are made
     for close-range combat, despite their long-range capabilities, thus letting
     him launch projectiles even after moving.
     
     Don't forget to take down as many of those unmanned crafts as you can, though,
     as they have poor defenses and relinquish $800 bucks a pop.

     There are two types fighting here, but they're all technically enemies, even
     if they attack each other. Tap the L Server immediately since it's so close
     to the starting point, and veer east to attack. Try to let Mebius get in a
     fair share of attacks/kills since her level will probably have lagged behind
     six or seven levels since we last saw her. With all the distraction and most
     of the bullets aimed at the 'other' enemy, this janitor job'll be a cinch.

     The BIS base gets attacked somehow and Testament's been stolen, so Cage will
     have to drive -- <shudder> -- Edge. Plus, the enemy units are hankering for

      * - Enemy leader's frame is Lv 21.
    
     The 'hard' part about this is that the enemies are masked by the terrain and
     don't show up unless an ally is within three panels of 'em. This camouflage
     could have been quite a task, but there's one fatal flaw in this advantage:
     the enemy won't attack while masked! There won't be a surfeit of evasive
     maneuvers, thus, and this isn't nearly as hard as it could be. Head towards
     the western LEV C leader (already visible) and take him out to accomplish
     the task.
    
     When ten enemies are defeated, or the enemy leader is defeated, the rest of
     the hidden masses appear again... At this time, Twede will appear in Vjaya 
     and come help you. Defeat the leader to wrap this thing up.

     The odd thing is that Ravana doesn't get any automatic Spirit Boosts (needs 5
     to use Hell Rave), so it's crippled from the start. Did I mention that it 
     begins RIGHT in the middle of the ally camp? This means he can be engaged and
     defeated at once, kicking him out of the running in the first turn! There is
     a scene afterwards where he retreats, but the other enemies still have to be
     deep-sixed before the scenario ends. You didn't think it'd be THAT easy? :p
    
     Just build up Avelcaine/Burn Stormer and go to town. At the mid-twenties, they
     should be able to do 2800+ dmg.

     Having left BIS due to internal pressure (understatement), Cage realizes that
     it's really not the right decision. He returns to the hideout to find it in
     shambles, but everyone's alright. Oh, and Ned's back...and the doctor... At
     least Testament's back in Cage's grip with all his initial abilities upgraded
     to a fine degree. Le's go.

     The party's surrounded once again, just in a broader scale. HarutMarut will
     go on top of the northeastern cliff so that only OFs can reach it (or long-
     -range attacks), at least until the enemy numbers dwindle down enough. Once
     again, HarutMarut's abilities are designated as close-range even though they
     have long-range capabilities, meaning it can move and attack in one turn as
     long as there's an ally in range. Leech experience by shooting it with crappy
     attacks (Handgun...) before dealing the finishing blow.

     When its second form comes with doubled HP, surround it with the best physical
     fighters (Testament, Durandal II, Justeen, Orcrist) and hammer at it. Only the
     Dreizehn can attack outside of Wisp Meteor's range, so think about exchanging
     Caliburnus for Orcrist to optimize every mech, every turn. When its HP dips
     below 50%, it will refill all its health but retreats after some 'Twede Magic'
     occurs.

     (NOTE: Most of the above monsters are masked. Hidden Raptors are Lv. 28)
    
     Raptors are a newer unmanned unit, and boast better defenses and some better
     attacks. They seem to prefer close-range attacking, but that's just one of my
     observations. Robin will be driving Edge, too, which she does with a bit more
     finesse than Deckson. Try to give Robin some of the kills since Edge hasn't
     been in use for quite awhile. At turn two, a new enemy appears in the west...

     Start sending Testament down towards our 'friend' Grafficane, and let the
     others follow as well as they can while still destroying a few mechs each
     turn. It's rather easy to make it to there in thirteen, and even if one just
     barely makes it, Grafficane initiating battle counts toward the objective.

     Now that riots have broken out, it seems the trans-Mars railroad is being
     targeted for destructive...purposes. Time to put off the Alderan search party
     and stop some bloodshed, folks. Blade has now become 'Calibur,' and has an
     upped base attack (1300) and a Replenish/RepairSystem intact now. It's a bit
     better than before, but not by much. Oh, and Deckson's driving Vjaya

      * - Bridge LEV Cs are Lv. 24
    
     The goal is to defuse the three bombs on the railroad tracks with Testament,
     the only OF capable of doing this job (like Durandal II back at Semyl's old
     orphanage). The enemies are also in stealth mode, which can complicate this
     a bit, but don't really appear until the bridge is reached. As usual, enemy
     AI dictates that if it can use a long-range attack instead of a close-range
     one, it definitely will -- there's no danger of Testament being surrounded
     here.
    
     Eight more enemies appear when you near the bridge even further, and they're
     blocking the access to the goal points in a way (stationary). This kind of 
     makes up for the ease in getting to the place, I guess. Avoid any wasting of
     time by passing by the opponent LEVs, unless there's one near the 'endpoint'
     of the movement phase. Once the first middle LEV is destroyed, the next two
     are able to be gotten; there's one more middle one to destroy for the last
     of the goal spots. When the eleventh turn comes or all enemies and goals are
     done, everyone retreats to watch the train's safe passage...only...

     a 1000-and-below attacker. He's in the big leagues and is all-around now! :D

     Blade is reborn as 'Calibur,' at this point, and has augmented defenses and

     Let the enemies approach on the first turn to gain the 'initiative' strike.
     Any OF past Lv. 25 should be able to do 2000+ damage a hit, and if they're
     just under it, attacking any high-level craft, of course, results in a huge
     amount of experience to level things out.

     New enemies for this path, the Raptors are unmanned enemies that are lightnin'
     on wheels and function as L&A LEVs. The ally formation encircles Saoshyant
     completely. Leaving everyone in that formation is a bit stupid, so whittle it
     down to leaving mechs on all four sides of the Saoshyant and letting the rest
     (L&A types, preferably) deal with the ones over the seawater. Just make sure
     that an enemy never comes adjacent to the cargo ship or it'll end up with a
     self-destruct sequence that rips it apart...game over. =/

     The enemies appear on the eastermost part of the bridge, so you can probably
     leave Saoshyant and flock to the next end, if you're just bent on defeating
     the Scarmiglione mech. The Raptors will flock towards the cargo ship, which
     means ally OFs can pick them off as they waste their turns. Nadia will move
     towards the nearest ally and a few Raptors might stick around then, but for
     the most part, it's a one-track mindset. Scarmiglione's HP is rather mediocre,
     and a combination of Avelcaine/Soulsection could probably take it out with no
     problem.
    
     Just don't forget to tap that L Server for the new skills, eh?

     Yay, two special characters this time! Despite what the victory conditions
     say, defeating Grafficane will end the battle, so make sure to get to the L
     Server before then! This can be hard if you want to get this over quickly,
     in which case it can probably be done by the second turn. Move all OFs north,
     except Vjaya who should go diagonalish towards the server; on the second turn
     move Vjaya straight up to be level with the server. If it's done right, none
     of the LEV Cs will only move above/below Vjaya and it can get to the server
     without any trouble.
    
     Grafficane descends from the middle-north and will make itself cannon fodder
     since it can't hit anything. Watch some 'salvation' scenes and that's all to
     watch, besides a bright flash of...

     Yeah, a heapin' helpin' of enemies this time around. They start far away, so
     think about heading north to the local server before they approach. When the
     Raptors approach, let the OFs with the best hi-damage, spirit-only attacks
     get in the kills so that they can better damage the Cyclops/Mummy Head units,
     which should be new on this arc. Mummy Heads are purely long-range, while the
     Cyclops are only short-range. Huh. Regardless, spend a turn cleansing the LEV
     Cs from the battlefield, since their status is relegated to 'nuisance' at this
     point. Since the Cyclops have to be in your grill to attack, they should be
     the last ones taken out; destroy the long-rangers and make this a simple(r)
     li'l fight.
    
     It's more fun when there's an objective other than 'kill everything,' ain't
     it? Either way, that strategy of evading in circles is about the only useful
     thing to do in this case. If you're having trouble, don't forget to use items
     and Calibur/Orcrist's Repair command. When there's one enemy left, doing this
     is a pretty good idea. GET THE LOCAL SERVER BEFORE YOU DEFEAT THE LAST ENEMY!

     Everyone moves farther into the factory after the enemies are scrap metal --
     all Spirit values and such are maintained -- to find a waiting boss LEV!

     Time to stab this pilot with some hot lead! Let it approach for three turns
     and ambush it with everything you have. Since Spirit values are the same as
     the previous battle, unleashing Avelcaine, Bounder, Shock Hi-Low, and others
     are incredibly easy. Just be sure to use the 'Supply' ability if you run out
     of ammo/energy for the best abilities. One good thing about this behemoth is,
     like HarutMarut, it's got three large 'critical hit' core points, increasing
     the chance of extra damage. I don't need to remind you that attacking the foe
     is almost an automatic level-up, right? Draw. It. Out!
    
     But, the third act has yet to come!

     Factory's about to X-plode, huh?
    
     The Ifrit's truly a terrible creation, a basic 'clone' of Testament with a
     ramped-up attack power on its three main skills. Luckily, fighting them is a
     bit optional (at least on your end) since Scarmiglione is the only target to
     end the battle. The main draw to killing the thing is they drop $2000 bucks a
     pop, and with the same Spirit content as before, can go down in two attacks
     (minimum) if you're lucky. Their defenses don't seem to be up to par, though,
     so even Calibur can be hitting 2500+ with minimal attack upgrades.
    
     When you get Nadia down to 25% of her HP (~1750), move Frazer's craft Vjaya
     next to her to see a special scene. She'll join BIS at the end of the battle
     if you do this; if not, well...

     Stealth...what would we do without you? Well, time to get down to the nitty
     gritty and smash up the controls keeping the anti-stealth visible. And guess
     which unit's got that installed? Robin's in Calibur, by the way, and is 2x
     better than Deckson as a pilot. Just look at the damage increases. =)

     As usual, a bunch of enemies are hidden along the path while Ravana sits far
     north and waits for ambushes to take place. As such, as long as you stick to
     one side of the map, some enemies won't even show themselves. Stick to the
     right side and only fight five LEV As and the four Raptor bodyguards that'll
     stick by Ned.
    
     Attacking Ravana the first time gives +5 Spirit for use of Hell Rave, so if
     you're hurting by then, hold off on attacking until ganging up is possible.
     When he gets in critical health, he runs off like a pansy -- win! Too bad
     that only finishes the first portion of the battle.

     Two more 'special' units appear in the northeast and have to be dealt with.
     Nerokerubina moves very slowly, though, so it might be wise to take care of
     the leftover Raptors from the previous phase. In fact, N'bina won't even move
     until an enemy nears there, which is all the more reason to get rid of enemy
     ranks riding your coattails. Scarmiglione, however, is more than happy to 
     oblige and guns for the nearest ally ASAP. Let the OFs get in the most kills
     so their attacks get powered up faster.
    
     Nerokerubina is actually a big pushover, and has three big critical hit 'core'
     points that can be hit, as opposed to the regular units' one. Luckily, there
     is no need to whittle away its 25000 HP; just attack it with Testament and
     let the cutscenes occur.

     More civilian hijinx, this time with local spheres being attacked by UNSF. 
     If you saved Nadia, she'll be piloting Vjaya; if not, Twede will be in the
     driver's seat. Either way, some children are being held hostage, so this'll
     be like an orphanage scene redux.

     It should go without saying, but don't attack any of the four Raptors holding
     the children until Testament can rescue them. And by rescue, I mean moving it
     adjacent to the enemy unit. It works both ways, too -- if a Raptor nears Cage
     the kid will automatically be rescued. Don't forget that you can rescue two
     at once if you happen to border 2 Raptors! Ned and his four bodyguards won't
     bother to approach until the regular units have bitten the dust. If all allies
     stay towards the bottom, Ned won't bother approaching until the battle's end,
     giving ample time to tap the local server in the east! Vjaya's probably the
     best candidate to send there.
    
     When Ned is first attacked, he will be regenerated completely. Pharsti notes
     that this will happen until the metatron runs out. Attack him normally and
     deplete his health to see some scenes that tell of the mythology behind the
     name 'Ravana.'

     to the local server in the east if you haven't already.

     SSA2 is a better version of the passive healing ability 'SSA1', and is given
     to Testament...if you tapped the server. DoubleAction is given to Testament &
     Vjaya, and allows for two action turns each in a row. Yeah, the game just got
     a whole lot easier. :p

     The ally formation encircles Saoshyant completely, here. Leaving everyone in
     that formation is a bit stupid, so whittle it down to leaving mechs on all
     four sides of the Saoshyant and letting the rest (L&A types, preferably) deal
     with the ones over the seawater. Just make sure that an enemy never comes
     adjacent to the cargo ship or it'll end up with a self-destruct sequence that
     rips it apart...game over. Pretty easy to just let the OFs do the dirty work
     at this point. =/
    
     Nerokerubina will advance this time, too, thankfully. Leaving Saoshyant to
     surround the glacier-speed mech is a good idea, as this gets better access by
     the local server. You probably won't get near it before the next phase begins

     A few crappy minions against two high-HP beings. If you moved away from the
     Saoshyant, start taking out the Raptors like crazy, since that's their main
     purpose here. Since most enemies will float over the sea, the OFs are better
     at the destruction than the cargo-ship guardians...meaning leave all the land
     types to guard Saoshyant if you're worried about the battle outcome.
    
     When all cronies are dead, you can (pretty much) safely evacuate Saoshyant's
     environ and have all enemies go down the bridge to attack. That said, don't
     bother attacking Nerokerubina because HarutMarut is the only mech that has
     to be destroyed to fulfill the conditions. For the love of god, remember to
     tap the local server!!!

     Protecting Saoshyant is the key to this, but there's one unit short at this
     time, so break formation and guard it on all four sides with the land-type
     LEVs. Bolozof's units won't move immediately, so waste the first turn and let
     the northern mesa's minions come nearer. Although there is one unit short
     (Vjaya), DoubleAction with Testament ensures that he can kill any foe in the
     allies' turns.
    
     On Turn #3, Robin says she'll try to hack the satellite in an attempt to 
     overcome the password failure. She'll need an extra three minutes (turns) to
     do some typing, so buy it. On Turn #6, the password's found and Nadia will
     show up to teach Bolozof a lesson. Saoshyant also leaves, so there's no point
     in sticking in the diamond-shaped formation.
    
     When Grafficane's HP dips to critical condition, it gets refilled to full
     health and has to be fought once again, this time from the north. Should be
     the equivalent of a layup, what with two units having DoubleAction (I hope)
     for using-and-abusing.

     The easiest way to do this is to waste two turns and let the enemies and Ned
     approach, then bum-rush Ravana when it nears. It takes about four turns (with
     one of actual attack) for the boss craft to get in range, and this gives Vjaya
     plenty of time to go north to the L Server and get some new attacks. Kicking
     back and letting the enemy come to you is such a nice, sunny strategy... ^__^
    
     Ravana's allies will flee when it's defeated, Cage will get +10 Spirit for
     the upcoming phase.

     Unmanned Grafficanes are now here, as well as any enemies that were Ravana's
     detail. Luckily, the new enemies start far away and give everyone and with
     Cage's new spirit, start Soulsectioning any remaining enemies. Just remember
     to 'Supply' him more energy or he'll crap out after awhile. As usual, every
     Grafficane drops $2000, so if you're short on dough, don't hesitate to slap
     a couple of them into purgatory. The good thing about Scarmiglione is that
     it has such great range, it leaves its Cyclops bodyguards behind so that it
     actually sets ITSELF up for an easy surround-job. Get the server abilities
     downloaded before the coup de grace.

     So, inflicting 10000 damage on Iblis...shouldn't be too hard, yeah? The best
     setup to do this without taking any fire is to move Testament two spaces east
     from where it starts; then, put Robin behind him (west), Orcrist one space to
     the north, and Dreizehn one space to the south. Let two turns pass and Iblis
     will be in each of their sights, and they can simply halve its HP. You can
     replace units around, of course, but include Testament since all Spirit amts
     carry over, thus making things like Ray Disaster/Comet accessible.
    
     Iblis escapes with Nerokerubina when he gets too damaged.

     SSA2 is a new trait for Testament that refills its health in more amounts
     than SSA1. DoubleAction is for Testament and Vjaya, and allows for two command
     inputs per ally active turn. Yes, the game just got a LITTLE easier, if you
     harness its power.

     Pharsti suggests saving the kids by attacking them from close-range (1 grid),
     through disabling rather than destroying. Destroy the kids' Ifrits and it's a
     game over; attack from long-range and it's a game over, too. Once the orphan's
     frame is attacked, it leaves battle so that's a small load off your hands. Oh,
     and any unit can rescue the kids, so don't waste a bunch of time with just OFs
     or something.
    
     The way the enemies are organized is that the Ifrits will reach everyone 1st,
     and there's about four turns to clear them out before the Raptors reach the
     party. The boss and his Nerokerubina entourage are moving, too, but they've
     got poor move. It's entirely possible to defeat all minions (besides N'binas)
     before HarutMarut2 gets anyone in sight.
    
     After defeating HarutMarut2 once, it'll revive once again (Lv40) at the same
     HP with the same attacks. Any Nerokerubinas that were alive before will still
     be around, so that's one minor incentive to take 'em out. Keep any slow-moving
     mechs away (Caliburnus/Calibur) because it can now do 3000+ per attack. Not a
     good piece of news for those who have trouble using IBS. Another easy $3000
     for most players, though.

     The easy objective is made even easier by the fact two OFs have (OR SHOULD
     HAVE =/ ) the DoubleAction ability, which lets them move, essentially, twice
     their normal moving range. That in mind, the strategy is to act as a 'shunt'
     and clear a path for Testament/Vjaya to get towards the Nerokerubina, which
     is moving slow as always. Wait two turns and destroy the Cyclops between the
     Grafficanes' formation, then move said two OFs through the line. Either way,
     the first wave of attacks is going to be a firestorm of crap, and it'll be
     hard -- can't sugarcoat that -- for the slower units like Caliburnus/Calibur.
     YOU MUST BE USING 'IBS' TO DO THIS OR YOU WILL GET DECIMATED. But, the turn
     immediately after, if this was done right, Testament can reach Nerokerubina
     and finish the first phase.
    
     An alternate method of breaking through is on Turn #1, move people up to where
     Testament's 'longitude' and wait two turns, which will give better access to
     the lone Cyclops that should be right north of Testament. This also allows all
     Grafficanes to attack at once but NO (if you didn't move other units) Mummy
     Heads to get potshots in. I destroyed the Cyclops since they're easy targets,
     but this is an entirely plausible scenario for those who don't want to fight
     nine million things at once. Plus, Nero'a will approach Testament, which will
     complete the first objective immediately.
    
     Once the first objective is completed, three Nerokerubinas will appear and
     Cage will have to find the real one. Good thing DoubleAction is on-hand, huh?
     The easternmost of the three is the real Ms. Alderan, so approach there and
     Attack/Wait to end the battle. Did I mention that she joins and so does......
     THE NEROKERUBINA!?

     Cage will have to fight these alone, at least to Turn #5. It might be a bit
     rough early on, but DoubleAction will eventually allow for an enemy to be gone
     in one turn if your Rusty Cutter can't do 3000+ per (it takes about Lv40 to
     just get there). Just make sure that the enemies don't get any terrain bonuses
     from the slopes/rocks nearby. After reaching the fifth turn, Cage's allies'll
     appear to help clear out the other three. A very good tip here is to dwindle
     the ranks down to a single enemy and let the land-only LEVs get up that cliff
     towards the laboratory. Otherwise, it'll take four or so turns of combat to
     get them up onto level ground.
    
     When all enemies are down, the true enemy shows himself...sorta.

     Since this is the last battle, you can pretty much ignore any Ifrits, at least
     the ones that are out-of-the-way. As you probably found gainst HarutMarut2 in
     a previous scene, with DoubleAction and a full army of cannons pointed at one
     mech, it's incredibly easy to do 20000+ damage in one turn, especially when
     Testament's probably got enough Spirit to do major damage close- & long-range.
     Shock Hi-Low was OHKO'ing the Ifrits (6800+), meaning with a 'Supply' command
     each round, taking out the trash was never so easy.
    
     One good thing about this battle is that Iblis comes towards the party rather
     than sitting fat across the screen and letting its minions do the handywork.
     That conscious effort plays right into the player's hands, as it fights for a
     pole position among the ranks. Might be a little harder to surround, but find
     me a shortage of long-range attackers and I'd swear we're playing 2 different
     games here. =)
    
     When Iblis gets busted up, the final FINAL boss appears.

     The final boss appears in Grafficane with some minions, and any of Iblis'
     cronies that are left will still be remaining! Spend the first turn thinning
     the enemy herd nearest the allies to draw Grafficane downwards, then crack it
     in two like the Berlin Wall. 7000 HP is pretty crappy, but more importantly,
     it's managable with two DoubleAction vehicles.
    
     And...that's the end! There's one more non-gameplay 'chapter' to see, but it
     doesn't go further than that. Or much better than it. Hope you enjoyed this
     storyline! Try to replay on the 'Path A' arc so you get a few more battles
     (although, personally, I find Path B to be the best).

     Yeah, there are A LOT of enemies here and, what's worse, the allies start in
     the SE corner at the bottom of a cliffside. This means that land units aren't
     going to have an easy time getting up. Use the first turns, trying to scale a
     plateau by the buildings and wait for the enemies to approach. This time, it
     would be a stupid idea to do any shifty maneuvers -- you've got to destroy
     at least SOME of them, unlike last time. Not much to say there, besides move
     the best attackers up front, the long-range/slower units behind, and start
     abusing DoubleAction quickly. Luckily, the 'Ravana' won't stay behind and let
     its acolytes do the work; it moves right in with 'em, making it a pretty easy
     target after the first movement. Either way, can't avoid a huge and bloody
     battle. At least there's been lots of target practice so far, hmm? One good
     thing that may happen is, at least in the early rounds, it becomes so crowded
     that many enemies don't even get a turn. I estimate that it's possible for
     about four enemies to be destroyed per turn (without criticals), making it
     not TOO hard to withstand the onslaught... It's 6+ if Testament can OHKO
     anything, of which it's possible with Soulsection (etc.)
    
     When Ravana gets smoked, it retreats and someone familiar comes out to play.

     | Iblis             | 45 | 20000 | | Soul Eclipse (>)  | 1850 |   1   | +05 |
     '-------------------'----'-------' '-------------------'------'-------'-----'
    
     At this point, if you can go to meet Iblis with Vjaya/Testament, do so as it
     can save a few turns of it approaching. It's a powerhouse now, and its Soul
     Eclipse attack can do 4000+ damage. However, there's still the matter of all
     those enemies left over from the previous phase. Remember that Mummy Heads
     have a horrible attack range of only three panels, so if you can move outside
     that, they'll have to waste their turn following.
    
     When Iblis is destroyed, the game ends. Hope you enjoyed the Path A arc!

     The 'MechReference' section of the Options tab allows the player to find more
     information about the LEVs (mechs), their make, model, and that kinda stuff.
     References only show up after encountering that mech in the story/battle, so
     if you're missing one of these, it may because of that. Note that only the
     Ifrit (I believe) is missable, since it's found only on the Path B storyline.
     Spoilers are at a minimum here.

    [DREIZEHN]

     LEV used by BIS. Better at long-range sniper-style shooting than the average
     LEV. "Dreizehn" is a nickname, meaning "thirteen" in German. Official name:
     "Torador."
    
    [DURANDAL II]
    
     Category: OF

     destroyed by Warren.
    
    [EDGE]
    
     Category: AFV

     Category: OF

     Category: Large LEV
    
     Large LEV utilizing metatron advocated by Zephyrs; used mostly in riot
     control. Roughly 2-3 times the size of the average LEV, assistance
     intelligence installed enables complex maneuvers to be handled with ease, even
     by just one pilot. Looks like an octopus, jellyfish, or other similar deep-sea
     creature. (Interior is a direct plagiarism of Tempest.)
    
    [HARUTMARUT]
    
     Category: Large LEV
    
     The HarutMarut after reconstruction following damage; also known as "Number
     2." Unlike previous models, the inner mechanisms are based on Zephyrs'
     research of the Tempest.
    
    [IBLIS]
    
     Category: OF
    
     The true identity of the Black Frame. An older model of the Animus series, it
     is equipped with Version (alpha) of the I.D.O. Mindflow System, making it an
     imposing enemy even for Testament; it is possible, however, for the pulse to
     flow backwards and kill the frame runner inside.
    
    [JUSTEEN]
    
     Category: LEV
    
     LEV used by BIS. Much more agile than the average LEV, and excels in combat
     involving the "leg" area. "Justeen," along with "Dreizehn," was the nickname

    [TESTAMENT]
    
     Category: OF
    
     The true identify of Cage's LEV. Secretly tested and built by Zephyrs, Bolozof
     should have been its frame runner. Limitless capacity. Named "Testament" by
     Pharsti, which may refer to the covenant between Pharsti and Cage... But there
     seems to be a deeper underlying meaning to its nomenclature. Zephyrs and his
     crew call it the "New Model Animus."

     The 'CharaReference' choice under the 'Options' tab details information about
     the game's characters. Obviously, there will be spoilers abound here, so don't
     read in ignorance, plz. As always, characters only show up when they're found
     in-game, but I don't believe any are missable.
    
    [AMANTE]
    
     Name : Amante Furlair
     Sex  : Female
     Age  : 16
     Blood: ???
    
     Like Nadia, an assistant of Bolozof. Under her youthful and innocent
     appearance lurks the heart of a cruel, vicious demon. The wicked look in her
     eyes betrays something of her true nature. Numerous men have approached her,
     judging her wrongly by her harmless looks, only to find themselves used and
     dumped in the end. Looks to be about 16, but her actual age is unknown.
    
    [ARES]
    
     Name : Ares Enduwa
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 17
     Blood: AB
    
     A co-worker of Cage aboard the Bonaparte III, a colonist spacecraft linking
     Earth and Mars. Having already worked on Bonaparte III for 4 months when Cage
     first boarded a year earlier, Ares showed Cage the ropes. Something of a
     genius, the normally taciturn Ares met Cage late one night after work, when he
     was playing a "piano" that he had conjured by altering a program on a PC in
     the ship's lobby. Cage happened upon his impromptu concert and was so moved
     that he began talking to him. At first, Ares was irked by the intrusion, but
     he eventually gave in to Cage's perseverance and found himself, much to his
     own surprise, becoming Cage's friend and looking after him. Fellow Bonaparte
     staff dubbed the unlikely pair "The Eighth Wonder of Bonaparte."
    
    [BOLOZOF]
    
     Name : Bolozof Velasgo
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 29
     Blood: A
    
     Silver-haired and lithe, with glittering eyes that hint at a soul full of
     malice. Cold and robotic, he escaped to Mars to avoid trouble he spawned when
     he permanently injured some colleagues in training. Views Martians as nothing
     more than slaves to be bent to his will. He follows the orders of Zephyrs,
     but...
    
    [CAGE]
    
     Name : Cage Midwell
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 17
     Blood: O
    
     A kindhearted, gentle youth. Began working on board the Bonaparte III along
     with Ares, whom he met a year earlier. Born 17 years ago to an unknown mother
     on the cargo deck of the Midwell, which was smuggling illegal immigrants, Cage
     was raised on the ship by the Captain, who took the boy under his wing. Though
     he was treated well by fellow Midwell staff, Cage always harbored a feeling of
     loneliness and isolation in his heart, which translated into low self-esteem
     and overly passive behavior. When the Captain died and Midwell was deemed
     unfit for flight, Cage boarded Bonaparte III, where he met Ares. His new
     friendship with this boy, who was the same age as him and yet so mature, had a
     profound effect on Cage, and helped him recover from his psychological wounds.
     However, the knowledge that he owes his rebirth to Ares has proven problematic
     in itself, as Cage depends on Ares entirely, and suspects that he will never
     be able to exist independently of him.
    
    [CUBICK]
    
     Name : Cubick Noyce
     Sex  : Female
     Age  : 29
     Blood: B
    
     The eldest of the "Mars Angels," she zips around space in her custom-built LEV
     in pursuit of eligible bachelors. She is naturally beautiful, but her looks
     are also a product of unthinkable effort and an arsenal of makeup. Complains a
     lot. Not too fond of Palme, and calls her "Ms. Palme." Height: 5'9". Weight:
     secret. 38-25-33. Favorite stone: champagne-colored fancy diamond. Dislikes:
     sweat. (Source: Mars Angels Fan Club Newsletter)
    
    [DECKSON]
    
     Name : Deckson Geyse
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 42
     Blood: O
    
     Founder and father figure of BIS. Believing that he merely lent a hand to the
     Mars Resistance movement, he does not realize the full extent of his influence
     in Martian politics, although he would gladly give his life to support the
     cause. A family man, he used to be an officer in the UNSF, where he enjoyed
     moderate success, but was divorced by his wife due to long work hours. Having
     lost his main motivation in life and beseiged with guilt over his
     participation in the Enders, he left the UNSF and began to research the
     strange goings-on brought on by Earthlings, earning him both friends and foes
     along the way. His support base continued to grow, and eventually formed BIS.
    
    [DIGIT]
    
     Name : Digit Carlyle
     Sex  : Female
     Age  : 19
     Blood: O
    
     The youngest of the Mars Angels. High-pitched voice, loudmouthed, talkative.
     Idolizes Cubick. Not afraid to speak her mind, even mouths off to Palme.
     Height: 5'4". Weight: not telling!. 34-25-30. Likes: anything you can eat with
     your hands. Dislikes: being hungry. (Source: Mars Angels Fan Club Newsletter)
    
    [FRAZER]
    
     Name : Tim Frazer
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 38
     Blood: A
    
     Mars Army officer. Looks older than his years due to endless problems with the
     Resistance, which may have something to do with his being forever single. No
     star qualities, but a nice guy nonetheless. Has caught BIS leader Deckson on a
     number of occasions, but has never been able to keep him. Has one half-brother
    
    [GILBERT]
    
     Name : Gilbert Kelly
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 12
     Blood: B
    
     Playful yet shy boy from the same orphanage that Semyl grew up in. Going
     through awkward almost-teenager stage, he has a little crush on Semyl and
     dislikes all males that make passes at her.
    
    [IRVING]
    
     Name : Johnny Irving
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 43
     Blood: O
    
     High-ranking officer in the Mars Army. He is a pushover who was bullied into
     cooperating with Zephyrs. Emotionally weak, scrawny, and always has a look of
     consternation on his face. He and Zephyrs call each other by name, but there
     doesn't seem to be a real friendship between them.
    
    [JAEGER]
    
     Name : Patrick Jaeger
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 55
     Blood: A
    
     High-ranking officer from Earth. Lets nothing escape unnoticed. He has
     escaped death on numerous occasions, and seems kind but is actually not as
     soft as he looks. His age is starting to show.
    
    [JIMMER]
    
     Name : Lance Jimmer
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 20s
     Blood: ???
    
     Man of mystery. Has razor-thin slits for eyes, and is somewhat reptilian.
     Although he gives the impression that he is always smiling, his eyes are
     eerily expressionless. In fact, his face is like a creepy mask. Nobody really
     knows of his origins nor his motivations, but it is clear that he does not
     champion the Martians' cause.
    
    [JOJO]
    
     Name : Jordy Jones
     Sex  : Female
     Age  : 11
     Blood: O
    
     Nickname "Jojo." A simple and innocent young girl from the same orphanage that
     Semyl grew up in. In stark contrast to her dark past, she is outgoing and free
     of issues. Wants to marry Cage when she grows up.
    
    [LEWY]
    
     Name : Lewy
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 31
     Blood: B
    
     A.k.a. "Logistic Lewy." Surprisingly well-known as a mover and shaker, he
     specializes in petty crime, even trying to score some change off Cage on one
     occasion. Perished with the rest of the staff and passengers on board
     Bonaparte III. Oh well.
    
    [MEBIUS]
    
     Name : Mebius K. Lylekraft
     Sex  : Female
     Age  : 26
     Blood: B
    
     A mature lady whose soft, kind demeanor belies her skilled, sharp strategic
     abilities. Mebius moved to Mars with her husband, who died in an accident
     while on his way to buy a toy for the couple's unborn baby; she then lost her
     baby (who was to be named Tia) due to a miscarriage. It was then that Mebius,
     despondent over the loss of her loved ones and waiting for death's embrace,
     met Deckson, who was conducting research into the very accident which killed
     her husband, in an attempt to prove that an Earthling General was responsible
     for the tragedy. Hurt and angry, she joined BIS, where she works alongside
     Deckson. It seems that Mebius has deeper feelings for Deckson than just trust,
     but she either does not realize this, or she is in denial as they work
     together and as she remains loyal to her dead husband.
    
    [MYONA]
    
     Name : Myona Alderan
     Sex  : Female
     Age  : 17
     Blood: A
    
     A mysterious girl found hiding in a storage room on board the Bonaparte III.
     Since the accident involving the unidentified object, she sticks with Cage and
     his group. Having suffered retrograde amnesia since the incident, what little
     personal information that is known of Myona has been pieced together based on
     occasional hints about her past. Though she sometimes hints at a determined
     and headstrong personality hidden deep inside, she is shy and rarely acts
     aggressively. Serious yet somethow flighty, she also seems slightly imbalanced
     which may have something to do with her loss of memory...
    
    [NADIA]
    
     Name : Nadia Candido
     Sex  : Female
     Age  : 19
     Blood: A
    
     One of Bolozof's assistants, as well as his mistress. The fact that the
     Martian-hating Bolozof keeps her at his side leads her to believe mistakenly
     that Bolozof recognizes her talent and loves her. A hard-working and earnest
     military employee.
    
    [NED]
    
     Name : Ned Noachim
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 27
     Blood: O
    
     Zephyrs' assistant. Completely lacks any sort of leadership skills, but thanks
     to Zephyrs, has achieved a degree of status in the army. Views Martians as
     subhuman and repeatedly commits racist crimes against them. Also prejudiced
     against women, who find him loathsome. He attributes his complex to past
     experience without realizing that it's no excuse to be a pig. Used to be
     called "Scarface."
    
    [PALME]
    
     Name : Palme Winston
     Sex  : Female
     Age  : 24
     Blood: AB
    
     Introverted middle "sister" of the Mars Angels. (The Mars Angels are not
     related by blood.) Good-looking, but can't seem to land a boyfriend due to
     personality issues. Well-trained in hexes and divination, she remembers every
     person who has done her wrong, what they did, and when. Mysterious, but with a
     unique charm about her. Height: 5'6". Weight: ?? 36-27-38. Ideal Man: Aleister
     Crowley. Dislikes: direct sunlight. (Source: Mars Angels Fan Club Newsletter)

     Well-behaved child from the same orphanage that Semyl grew up in. Polite and
     religious, he is always carrying a crucifix.

     immediately following the Bonaparte III's collision with the unidentified
     object. In these days, when voice-activated OSs are a dime a dozen, he (she?)
     is special, incorporating highly advanced technology not found in other
     programs found on LEVs. What secrets could possibly lie hidden in its
     creation?
    
    [PHIL]
    
     Name : Philbright
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 17
     Blood: AB
    
     Full name "Philbright Westriverside Warehouserock XXVI." Excels in household
     chores such as cooking, cleaning, and laundry. Easily frazzled. Because of his
     long, beribboned blond hair and his high-pitched voice, he is often mistaken
     for a girl. Phil owes his long name to his "father," who believed an old
     superstition that luck comes to people with long names. He grew up in a happy
     family among many unrelated siblings, but tragedy struck one day when his
     "father" sampled a medication which induced a sudden fit of insane violence.
     Confused and horrified, Phil was unable to defend himself from the savage
     attack, but when he came back to his senses, his entire family, including his
     father, was dead. The manufacturer of the medicine attempted to cover up the
     incident and lay the blame on Phil, at which time Deckson rescued the
     unfortunate youth and took him under his wing. Now a BIS member support
     officer, he has a crush on Myona...
    
    [RAIAH]
    
     Name : Raiah
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 38
     Blood: ???
    
     The self-styled "#1 Broker on Mars." Rumor has it he moved to Mars due to some
     trouble at home. Overly sensitive about the topic of his blonde-haired, well-
     -built, family man father for some reason."
    
    [RAZMA]
    
     Name : Razma Cascade Jr.
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 19
     Blood: A
    
     The skirt-chasing troublemaker of BIS, he is surprisingly reliable where it
     counts. Somewhat childish, but also remarkably perceptive sometimes. A gifted
     sharpshooter with excellent hearing and eyesight. Seems to have a thing for
     Semyl, but nothing has materialized as of yet. His only family is his sick
     mother, who tells him that his father was a "high-profile Earthling"; however,
     they have never spoken with one another. Obsessed with the idea of the father
     he never met, he may have found a paternal figure in Deckson...
    
    [ROBIN]
    
     Name : Robin O'Connell
     Sex  : Female
     Age  : 33
     Blood: O
    
     BIS's main sponsor. Roughly 90% of BIS capital comes from the Robin
     Foundation, an underground group run by Robin herself. Boasting a wide network
     of connections and tremendous resources, the group does whatever it can to
     assist BIS, from procuring power source units and other parts for army machine
     prototypes to finding maintenance experts and catching fugitives. A beautiful
     but tough businesswoman-type, she is nurturing and motherly towards BIS
     members.
    
    [RYAN]
    
     Name : Ryan Stewart
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 65
     Blood: AB
    
     CEO of the Ryan Corporation, which comes (a distant) second after NUT. Gives
     off a personable first impression, but has no qualms about committing heinous
     acts against his enemies.
    
    [SEMYL]
    
     Name : Semyl Shambrow
     Sex  : Female
     Age  : 16
     Blood: O
    
     A robust girl who, for some reason, speaks in street slang. Constantly aware
     of the fact that she is short. Has a love-hate relationship with Razma.
     Although she grew up in an orphanage, she displays the healthy outgoingness of
     someone who had a very happy childhood. In reality, her childhood was
     difficult, having been subject to Ender prejudice by humans from Earth. Joined
     the Resistance early to regain respect for herself, and also to help ensure a
     happier future for her "siblings" at the institution. Lost a friend recently
     to some trouble associated with a romantic relationship with an Earthling
     human. A responsible big sister at the orphanage, underneath it all, she's
     just a sensitive 16-year-old.
    
    [TAKAHIRO]
    
     Name : Takahiro E. Yukito
     Sex  : Male

     Name : Twede Grey
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 30s
     Blood: ???
    
     Robin's secretary. Cloaked head-to-toe in black with dark glasses and black
     gloves, he rarely speaks and almost never reveals any of his emotions. Keen
     and observant, he is almost psychic in his understanding of people; he is
     precise and swift in his work, often getting the job done before others even
     think of asking him to take care of it.
    
    [YUKITO]
    
     Name : Tadamichi E. Yukito
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 24
     Blood: AB
    
     Ardent fan of and expert in old-school sci-fi, low-budget movie stars, and
     20th-21st century Japanimation. Deeply involved in his own world, he if
     fiercely individual and mature in his self-assurance. Raised in a very proper,
     traditional family consisting of his father and his siblings, he ignored his
     family's wishes for him to join the corporate pack, stating, "Suits don't
     become me," and left home. The rest is history.
    
    [WARREN]
    
     Name : Warren Lumenlux
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 33
     Blood: A
    
     Prudent and overly cautious, he is often the butt of jokes; regardless, he is
     trusted for his knowledge and experience. A former mercenary, he always wears
     black sunglasses and does not speak much, giving him the aura of the
     "consummate professional." Once an expert gunman, he gave up his profession
     after an accident in which he mistakenly shot a young female hostage.
     Following the event, he wandered from place to place, eventually ending up in
     BIS on Mars. Has romantic feelings for a certain BIS member, but, not being
     very suave, has not yet succeeded in winning her over.
    
    [ZEPHYRS]
    
     Name : Dezeele Zephyrs
     Sex  : Male
     Age  : 49
     Blood: B
    
     High-ranking officer from Earth. Has a tendency to look down on others, but
     will not tolerate others doing the same to him. Convinced that he is better
     than anyone, he is self-centered and feels no guilt for all the suffering he
     has caused in his career. Born to a poverty-stricken household as the youngest
     child, he harbors a resentment towards all people who are rewarded with money
     and opportunity despite a profound lack of talent. This resentment caused him
     to turn his talents towards getting ahead at all costs. After gaining success
     as a scientist, he quickly moved up the hierarchy to his current position as
     Lab Supervisor. While he is disliked, nobody dares cross him because he is as
     influential as he is unpleasant.

     Orbital Frame owes its smallness, lightness, and power to this concept.
    
    [ANTI-STEALTH SONAR]
    
     Mechanism which counteracts stealth, weakening it or negating it entirely. In
     this game, it will activate within a set distance from the enemy.

     sentiment is stronger than anywhere else on Mars.
    
    [BURST ATTACK]
    
     Highly effective type of attack in which the output of the fighter unit is
     increased temporarily.
    
    [CAGE'S BUTTON]

    [DEIMOS INCIDENT]
    
     Terrorist attack by anti-Earth officials of BAHRAM. The Orbital Frame, which
     was being tested by BAHRAM, was seized, the UNSF was assaulted, and Deimos
     Station was engulfed in a terrible tragedy. Since then, the Orbital Frame has
     become public property, and tensions between Earth and Mars have been on the
     rise.
    
    [ENDER]
    
     Refers to an inhabitant of space in the area between Mars and Jupiter, the
     "end of the world" - the term connotes a country bumpkin. For Earthlings, the

     living in Jupiter territory.
    
    [HANDY PC]
    
     Mobile device given to Cage by Lewy. Although small, it has the largest memory
     allocation in its class and can even play movies.

     by Yukito's father.
    
    [HELLESPONT COUNTY]
    
     One of the 16 counties on Mars. Nestled between the Hellespontos Mountain
     Range to the north and south and a desert to the west, the county does not
     play a major role in Martian affairs, but the bulk of Mars' population is
     concentrated there due to its proximity to the Hellas Ocean to the east.
    
    [LEV]
    
     Laborious Extra-Orbital Vehicle. Developed to facilitate the building of
     space colonies. Manned vehicle used for transportation in space.

    [MALGALITYFEL]
    
     Refers to Magalityfel County, the central county on Mars.
    
    [MARTIAN]
    
     Refers to those born in Martian territory.
    
    [METATRON]
    
     Considered one of the two greatest discoveries in space development, along
     with the LEV, this mineral ore was found on Callisto, a moon of Jupiter, in
     the early 21st century. Widely researched and applied in a number of different
     fields.
    
    [METATRON COMPUTER]
    
     An enormous improvement upon the previously popular von Neumann digital
     computer, this quantum computer, which incorporations metatron-based
     integrated circuits, is both compact and exceedingly quick. Memory and
     programs are managed on a single, constantly changing set of circuits, so
     that both of these operations take place simultaneously and constantly. In
     terms of quantum physics, it operates in a different dimension.
    
    [MODULE]
    
     A type of life-sustaining structure found on Mars. Rendered obsolete due to
     the widespread construction of Spheres.
    
    [NEST]
    
     A gathering of Spheres.
    
    [NUT]
    
     Nereidum Universal Technology. Major conglomerate which began a space
     development program in the early 21st century. The largest manufacturer of
     LEVs, as well as the inventor of the Orbital Frame. Headquarters located in
     Nereidum County, Mars.
    
    [ORBITAL FRAME]
    
     Known as an OF. Battle unit invented and used by BAHRAM. Because it runs on
     the precious resource metatron, it is much faster and stronger than an LEV.
    
    [OXYGEN PLANT]
    
     Terraforming facility that supplies oxygen to Spheres and Nests.
    
    [PANDORA FRETTUM]
    
     A region in Hellespontos; the location of the Sphere which housed Semyl's
     orphanage.
    
    [PEACEKEEPING FORCE]
    
     The army of the United Colonies of Mars, which is actually under the direct
     command of the UNSF. Most members are Martians, but the force is controlled by
     Earthlings.
    
    [ROBIN FOUNDATION]
    
     Patron of BIS, having donated 90% of BIS capital. The "Foundation" is actually
     just a front for an elusive underground group - which, while not an official
     corporation, boasts impressive financial connections and influence. Also
     supports other groups besides BIS.
    
    [RYAN CORPORATION]
    
     Ranking a distant second after NUT in the tech manufacturing industry.
    
    [SPECIAL TASK FORCE ACEMOS]
    
     Unit of the UNSF under the direct leadership of Zephyrs. Composed chiefly of
     Earthlings who are especially anti-Ender.
    
    [SPHERE]
    
     Dome-encapsulated city on Mars.
    
    [SSA (SELF-SUPPORTING ARMOR)]
    
     Found on the outer shell of Orbital Frames. Derived from metatron technology,
     the metatron alloy coating on the exterior simultaneously gives it pliability,
     strength, and hardness exceeding that of ceramic components. Also able to
     self-repair usint its own energy and metatron alloy.
    
    [TRANSPLANTATION]
    
     Refers to the act of "downloading" on a metatron computer. On a von Neumann-
     -type computer it would correspond to "file transfer," but in this case the
     actual circuits comprising the file are physically transported to a new
     location and the old circuits expunged.
    
    [UCM (UNITED COLONIES OF MARS)]
    
     Congregation of county representatives on Mars. There are a total of 16
     counties, each corresponding to a country on Earth and each with its own
     governing body. The board of politicans makes decisions concerning the
     counties as a whole, such as the use of UC Dollars as currency.
    
    [UNSF]

     Security Council member countries. Includes the Martian Peacekeeping Force
     under its jurisdiction.
    
    [URENBECK CATAPULT]
    
     Derived from metatron technology, the Urenbeck catapult utilizes the
     distortion and potential energy of space to enable travel at great speeds
     through space. Because tremendous amounts of electricity and power are
     necessary to activate this device, it is not used for regular commercial
     purposes. Currently, the Catapult can be found at L2 on Earth and Deimos near
     Mars. There is also a catapult at the L2 on Europa near Jupiter, which is used
     as the gateway to the Anterior.
    
    [VACILIA COUNTY]
    
     Home county of BAHRAM.
    
    [WEST HELLAS]

    VII. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS                                          [FAQZ]
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
    [Q] - How do I power-level?
    [A] - It's not really possible naturally; however, using the 'Retreat' option
          or dying still results in experience/cash retained.
    
    [Q] - How are the upgrades managed for Shell/Energy/HP? How much do they cost?
    [A] - There's a maximum of six upgrades max for each, and all follow this $$
          plan per upgrade:
    
          $1000 -> 2000 -> 4000 -> 6000 -> 8000 -> 10000
    
          As for the increments each upgrade adds...
    
          * HP   : 200 -> 300 -> 500 -> 800 -> 1200 -> 1500
          * EN   : +40/per
          * WPN  : +30/per
          * SHELL: +40/per
    
          So a weapon with 1000 attack would become 1030 on its first upgrade...
          You get the picture.
    
    [Q] - So allies can play catchup by attacking higher-levelled enemies?
    [A] - Sorta, I s'pose. It doesn't work with just bosses, though -- I've had a
          low-level Orcrist get 700+ EXP for killing a regular LEV C, which kinda
          makes me think the game is going easy on the player.
    
    [Q] - It says I got an ability but I can't find it!
    [A] - Any craft that has 5+ abilities has a rollover onto the second page. It's
          easy to miss, and I didn't know I about it until my second playthrough,
          if it's any consolation.
    
    [Q] - I missed a local server skill. Can I go back and get it?
    [A] - Nope, it's gone forever.
    
    [Q] - Hey, you don't tell me how to defeat [so-and-so]!
    [A] - The reason I don't go in-depth is because the game basically offers you
          the difficulty setting of your choice. Either choose to use IBS and get
          good at manual evasion, i.e. the no-damage salvation, or turn off IBS and
          have a much harder time passing the game. In short, no enemy, whether it
          boss or otherwise, has a huge strategy because they can all be foiled by
          the same tactic.
    
    [Q] - Which path should I choose? A or B?
    [A] - Personally, I found Path B to be the more 'cheerful' one, if that makes
          any sense. It's a feel-good kind of path, whereas Path A is realistic...
          and sort of a downer. 
    
    [Q] - Hey, bub, you forgot to mention [so-and-so]! I am outraged, etc.
    [A] - Drop me a line and I'll fix it, bub.
    
    [Q] - Why aren't there any OFs shown in the garage????
    [A] - Orbital frames get upgrades through battling, while only land-type mechs
          can be upgraded through purchased ones. When an OF goes a level-up, it'll
          increase all of its weapon abilities by 5 and its pilot will go up a bit
          as well.
    
    [Q] - Is HarutMarut an LEV or an OF?
    [A] - Well, the mech reference section says 'Large LEV' but it can float over
          water, so it seems to have OF properties. It's a rather special craft,
          so I'm not completely sure.
    
    [Q] - Do you recommend having the Anime scenes and IBS system on?
    [A] - No to the first, yes to the second. Anime scenes only prolong battles,
          even if only a few seconds -- they're lengthy enough without all the
          fluff, yeah? As for IBS, they also lengthen battles but are absolutely
          crucial to survival, so never turn that off...'less you're a daredevil
          or something.
    
    [Q] - What's your favorite OF?
    [A] - Orcrist! Kinda basic, but, man, Elfin Bow rocks. Always loved those long-
          -range guys. Dreizehn comes in a close second, but it's not an OF and it
          ain't terribly decent outside of sniping.
