I. Intro

Hi, all. I wrote this FAQ because, like you probably did, I once wondered if 
I ever got all of the Red Chests that I passed during the course of the game.
Just in case you didn't know, you had to backtrack for a few hours if you
wanted them all, which brings me yet another reason to write this FAQ: to make
your life easier by saving you the trouble of frantically looking for those
cleverly-hidden items and finding a crappy item that you don't even need.
However, there are TONS of items that will undoubtedly make your quest far
more easier. Hope you find this FAQ helpful!


Q. What's so special about the Red Chests that you had to make a FAQ on it?

A. Those chests are found/seen all over the opening 5-7 hours of the game, but
the treasures that lies beneath those cannot be opened/attained until you know
'how to' unlock them, which comes later in the game. Therefore, after 
acquiring the knowledge and skill, you have to backtrack to various points of 
the game in order to get them all. Which is the reason why I made this FAQ: to
make your back-tracking _easier_.


Q. When will you learn how to open the chests?

A. First, meet Damon in Damon's Spire on the country/continent of Marius. He
will reward you with a Thief's Heart, which is the key to the admission into
the Theives' Guild. Go back to Reza, the home of the Guild, and enter the
bar/pub. Talk to the bartender and he will recognize your excellence in
obtaining the Heart and rewards you the Guild Card. That's it. You now can
open red chests!


Q. How do you access the Damon's Spire?

A. Get the Damon's Note from Meryod's restaurant, located beyond the Meryod 


Q. Is there any red chests further in the storyline (i.e., Red Dragon Cave)?

A. Since you are REQUIRED to get the Guild Card anyway, it would be pointless
for the developers to place Red Chests beyond Marius... Makes sense to you,
doesn't it? Yet... there are a few. I won't mention them because it's like a
normal chest from that point. Hell, there's one in the FINAL dungeon!


Q. How many Red Chests are there that I might have bypassed?

A. At my last count, twenty-seven (27) chests.


Q. When should I get them?

A. Whenever you have the Guild Card. IMO, the best time is to get them ASAP.
Most of them will GREATLY aid your quest.


Q. Are they worth it (the time taken to look for them)?

A. Hell yes! Think it as free money and free equipment! Most of them are
incredibly quick to find with the Dragon Wings!


Q. I don't have the Dragon Wings to transport me around anymore! Help!

A. *sighs* This isn't the place to ask, you know. But anyway. Go to the
Thieves' Bazaar, behind the counter of Reza Bar, and find the guy who
snatched the Wings away and viola! It's yours again!


Q. I found a Red Chest that you don't have unlisted!

A. Can it be found before you get the Guild Card? If so, please send an e-mail
of the directions my way! Credit? Of course I will credit you!

III. Red Chests Locations


Ramus's House, 2F
Location: Right of the Weapon Shop
    Item: Magical Cane, ATK +1 MEN +80
    Whom: Mia Only

Secret Passage
Location: Walk to the southeast and find a gap/indent in the woods. Walk into
          it and viola! Secret Passage! The chest is waiting for you at the 
          end of the path.
    Item: Beat Knuckles, ATK + 25 NOA +1
    Whom: Kyle Only

Secret Passage
Location: Holy crap. This is hard to find. You have Heyman614 (Dave) to thank
          to for this chest and the next one! Anyway, in the same place as the
          previous one (Beat Knuckles), go to the northwestern corner of the
          secret grotto and press A around the indent, behind some trees. You
          should eventually find it. You cannot see it at all before opening
          it. The item is worth it.
    Item: Sardonyx, AGL + 20
    Whom: Everybody

Secret Passage
Location: AWESOME ONE! Thanks again, Dave (Heyman614)! One of the best swords
          in the game and you can get it VERY early, probably before you EVEN
          fight one battle. It's in the same area as the last two chests, in
          a secret grove/grotto. It's tucked away behind some trees, invisible
          to your eyes. So, tap A when you're in the bottom (more like middle)
          left gap.
    Item: Thunder Blade, ATK + 55
    Whom: Alex Only


Old Hag's House
Location: Just waltz into the Old Hag's House by Burg and you'll find the
          chest inside.
    Item: Card Hunter - Makes it easier to get Cards from battles
    Whom: Anyone

(Thanks to numerous people who e-mailed me about this)

Secret Passage (in the NW section, before Quark's den)
Location: You could see a red chest in the middle, surrounded by trees, Can't 
          get in? Look for a secret passage within the right side, just stick 
          to the trees and you'll pop in.
    Item: Earthquake
    Whom: Jess Only, ATK +56 Sleep Effect


Behind the Northeastern House
Location: Partly hidden, keep an eye on the back of the house, on the 2nd tier
          (up the stairs).
    Item: 1500 $


Ramus's Shop
Location: Go under the catwalk to the right. The red chest is hidden in the SE
          corner. Partily blocked.
    Item: Bunny Suit (A joke from the developers)
    Whom: Mia and Jess Only, DEF +12

*A great tip from Matthew Robinson: "the bunny suit is what you get if you 
open the chest after you get the guild card. After you fight and lose to 
Ghaleon you get the Magic Plate. If you talk to Mia and Kyle after losing 
to him, you ge the mirror shield. I dunno the stats of the items but you 
can get them just the same."
