    "Well, where do I begin? Shining Force... The original wasnít that well known
    but was a game that excelled in its genre. The people who owned the mega-drive
    version will remember it well. The game was little known to the world back then
    as it wasnít publicised that much... Now it is Re-made for the Gameboy Advance,
    a brilliant idea!!! Iím writing for this game because I could tell you how to
    complete the original version from memory, and could do it myself with my eyes
    closed. I want to see how they have improved/worsened it and what changes they
    have made, And to keep me on track writing this FAQ will make sure I carry it
    through to the end... I hope it helps you." - Rob lane

    After arriving at the town go to the shop (run by the king) and sell any items
    that you don't want. There are no new items to buy from here. Then head through
    the middle door and round either side of the building to get the items from the
    chest.
    
    To get from island to island you need to use the temporary boat!! Firstly use 
    it to get to the church, Now you can raise your characters and save the game.

    need to talk to the king first so head to him (between the two shops). He will
    ask you for 1,000,000,000 for your repairs, but he is only joking. Tell him you
    are leaving and then you'll set sail for the east.

    then buy and sell items, then head east to the church and save the game and 
    raise your dead characters.

    BATTLE #21
    
    When in the town,explore, but to start with, avoid the building with the flame
    lit torches outside the doors. Open the chests, use the shops. Head north, to
    the building with stairs. Here you will meet Bleu, he will think that you are
    Runefaust's army, but then Max will convince him.
    
    BLEU joins the force.
    
    On your way back Kane will shout you,Talk to him. After the conversation he'll
    be fair and allow you to prepare for battle, so go to the shop if you havenít 
    already to buy and sell your items, Then go to the HQ to save the game.
    Leaving the HQ will start the battle.
    
    BATTLE #22
    
    After the battle there will be a "Luke, I am your father" moment, but instead,
    you find out Max and Kane are brothers. 
    
    Go inside the shrine and talk to Kane, Follow Kane down the stairs where there
    will be a short conversation with Darksol.
    
    Head to the building on the right of the Shrine, Talk to the man in there.
    His name is Boken, you may have seen him earlier when you first met Balbaroy 
    and Amon.
    
    Head to the church to Raise your party. then go back to Krin at the first town
    in this chapter. (south-west) 
    
    Leave the town, Bleu will talk to all of the people there who he is leaving
    behind. The you will leave for Prompt.

    after the battle head back to the town to raise your characters and then Save
    the game, Then carry on to the dungeon.

    Finally you arrive in the town of Prompt, Firstly head to the shop to buy and
    sell items, REMEMBER TO EQUIP YOUR LIGHT SABER TO MAX. Then go to the church
    to raise your dead and save the game!
    
    Then talk to the people who live in the town, go to the king in the castle and 
    talk to him, Once imprisoned check the bars, Then Boken will come and let you
    out. 
    
    Head back towards the king and a guard will take about the tower of the
    ancients. Head back toward the prison but go south instead of down the stairs
    to talk to Kane. Then leave the room and Kane will talk.
    
    Now leave the castle and head west over the bridge (the bloke has now moved)
    and to battle
    
    BATTLE #25
    
    After the battle head  back to the town if any of your characters died, so that
    you can raise them,
    
    Then go to the tower of the ancients. In the only open chest you will find the 
    Devil Lance, It is cursed so don't bother using it. In the chest on the next 
    floor is a turbo pepper.
    
    BATTLE #26
    
    Once inside the tower Alef and Torasu will talk to Max about being defeated 
    
    ALEF and TORASU join the force,
    
    Then head upstairs to talk to Darksol, Then he will talk about the Magic of 
    Rune. Narsha will come and join in the conversation as well. Kane will also 
    join the fun, and try to foil Darksol's plan.
    
    After Kane fails to foil the plan Darksol will disappear, And then Kane will 
    show you your past.
    
    after the whole cut scene is over and the Tower is destroyed head back to 
    prompt.
    
    Raise your dead at the church, then head back to the castle. talk to the king.
    Now head to the path, which is Downstairs and go behind the room with the steps
    to the kings chamber, and then due north. following the path.
    
    Max will automatically use the Orb of light and the door will open, You will be
    teleported, head right, and stand on the eye. Then the spirit of the spring 
    will come and talk to you again.
    
    Then talk to the robot on the left
    
    ADAM joins the force.
    
    BATTLE #27
    
    Head north, along the green carpet, First go to the left side and place the
    first saber, then to the right to place the second. Then a sword in the middle
    will appear. Then retrieve the sword, The CHAOS BREAKER. This is the only sword
    that is capable of defeating Dark Dragon, Make sure you equip it.
    
    After getting the sword you will automatically head north and talk to the 
    spirit of the spring. Then head right and you will arrive back in prompt castle
    Just talk to the king, then raise your fallen characters, I recommend after all
    the talking you've done that you save the game,and now sell items you donít use
    and then leave the town.
    
    BATTLE #28
    
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    =4.16 Chapter 8 - Rise of the Ancient Castle=
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    You arrive in runefaust region, the other side of the wall, heading south-west
    into the town is the way to go. Do the usual when arriving at a town, go to the
    shop, Church and then explore
    
    When your ready head north to the castle, talk to Mahato, and then head out of
    the town via the south west exit. Here you will meet Darksol again, and he will
    reveal more about the past.
    
    BATTLE #29
    
    This is really 1 battle but because they want you to defeat all of the enemies
    in the first battle they have to make 2 separate battles. You can retreat and
    then come back to Battle #30 without doing #29 again.
    
    BATTLE #30
    
    After the battle head back to raise the, almost guaranteed, casualties to the
    force, then head back, and instead of going north to where the last battle was
    head east and down the stairs.
    
    Head to the coast, as far east as you can go. The chaosbreaker will glow, and
    
    Head to the gate of the ancients, This should seem familiar (except that there
    isn't an earthquake) once inside the castle of the ancients head the only way
    you can go,
    
    BATTLE #31
    
    After the battle, a staircase will appear behind the Colossus Statue. Head up 
    it. unless any of your characters are dead, If they are dead then head back to
    town to heal them.
    
    This is the penultimate battle. 
    
    BATTLE #32 
    
    THERE IS NO BREAK BETWEEN THIS BATTLE AND BATTLE #33 SO DONíT RETREAT AFTER
    DEFEATING DARKSOL
    
    Darksol, will talk to Max, and tell him why he travelled through time, and then
    he will summon Dark Dragon
    
    BATTLE #33 - Technically battle 32 still. DARK DRAGON
    
    After the battle, Dark Dragon will come back to life, And Nova will instruct
    Max to use the Chaosbreaker, the room will shake, and max will be bound to the
    sword. Max will cast egress to save everyone else!
    
    You have no completed the game, sit back and watch the ending sequence.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    =4.15 Chapter 8 - Epilogue=

    After the end credits, there is another scene. A farmer is talking to an
    Adam-type. It shows that Max and Adam survived and are "not going anywhere 
    Inparticular". They are settling down for a while. 
    
    "Fin"
    
    Now save the game, as you can replay it again to collect all of the cards. Also
    the enemies will be harder and Mawlock joins the force Sooner. There are also
    slight plot changes.

    *-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*
    
    BATTLE #01
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat the Rune Knight
    Clear Bonus: win in 8 turns to receive 250g
    
    A short cut scene will take place before the battle begins, and their will be
    an earthquake.
    The key to this battle is to push forward, use all your characters to attack
    except for Lowe, use her turns to heal any character wounded. Gong can also do
    this if he needs to. Also remember each character (except for gong) now has a
    Healing Herb. Use Taos blaze, Hans arrows and Kens spear to fight from 2 grid
    squares back, so that the enemy can not attack back.
    Try to defeat all enemies before attacking the Rune knight.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #02
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: EITHER Destroy all enemies OR get to Guardiana
    Clear bonus: win within 12 turns to receive Demibuster.
    
    If you wish to retreat you will return to the MOUNTAIN HUT, where you can raise
    and save the adventure.
    This battle is harder to get started as you are all under each others feet.
    Ideally in this battle you need to keep Max defensive and use Lowe and gong
    more for healing as you mightn't have as many herbs as you started with in the
    last battle. Defeat all monsters for more EXP and Level-ups rather than heading
    for Gaurdiana. Lure the Rune knights across the bridge.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #03
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: EITHER Destroy all enemies OR get to Alterone (north)
    Clear bonus: win within 10 turns to receive 400g
    
    Here it explains that as long as you get max to Alterone you will win, However,
    I donít recommend this, Instead I suggest that you fight, even if you lose the
    1st few times, as you will raise your characters levels, Patience is a virtue
    and all that. In this battle you need to watch out for the Giant Bats on the
    far east because they can move vast distances across the map, and their attack
    will damage you. Also try and stay together if a character gets surrounded that
    will be the end of them, This battle is hard if your characters are bellow
    level 2 or 3.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #04
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Destroy all enemies
    Clear bonus: win within 12 turns to receive Jagged Flash
    
    I wouldn't worry about the clear bonus on this level, its not really worth the
    attempt. the only advice for this battle is to not place your characters in
    adjacent grid squares around the mage at the top as she will use Blaze2 to fire
    against a group of your characters. Also you will have to go to the enemies as
    they are defencive..Press up on the screen first, watching out for the bats
    that will attack. then head right and south to finish off the final 5 enemies.
    Remember, as Max says at the start, Khris is only level 2, so Use her alot to
    boost her levels (unnecessary healing if you must) but donít let her get too
    close to the fighting.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    BATTLE #05
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    this battle has no victory conditions. on the first turn move as far right as
    you can, and then use magic to boost her strength. On turn 2, Zurich will join
    you. As Narsha will get injured, Zikika should open the chest on the right, to
    get a shower cure, which will heal her from the distance between them.
    In-between doing these things, fight like a normal battle, despite the odds
    being against you. It will soon become obvious how it is rigged for you to win
    if you just 'go with the flow' as the enemies are 1-hit-kills.
    
    Defeating the Mage will end the battle.
    
    if you do die in this battle, it doesn't matter. The game will carry on
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #06
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Destroy all enemies OR get to Manarina
    Clear bonus: win within 18 turns to receive Doll Hater.
    
    Tao will give a little speech before that battle that will explain why you have
    to get across this desert.
    This is quite a large battle area compared with previous battles, Be aware
    firstly about crossing the bridge, send in archers and then your strongest
    character first as the Dark Dwarfs will surround you. Also when advancing North
    be weary of the Giant bats as they will 'Home in' on you, the main bat to be
    weary of is in the centre of the field. There are 3 others north that will come
    down to meet you. DO NOT group all of your characters together when you reach
    the desert as the mages have Blaze level 2. Remember Zombies are undead, which
    makes them weak against certain weapons. Sticking by these rules makes the
    battle do-able without having to head strait for Manarina. Its a good battle to
    level up.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #07
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat the Skeleton
    Clear bonus: win within 10 turns to receive 500 gold.
    
    This is quite a long, maybe hard battle that you most probably will have to do
    3 or 4 times.
    Scanning the battlefield you will see some treasure chests. These contain items
    that will be useful in battle, but you don't have to get them DURING the Battle
    The Giant bats (which are south-east of the map) should be relatively easy by
    now if you are level 4-6. The zombies and mages are the same as the last battle
    so follow the same advice. The zombies can poison you, so use Lowe and Antidote
    to cure it. the battle isn't Key to any particular strategy though.
    
    Use magic on the Skeleton as he has a high defence.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #08
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat the Marionette
    Clear bonus: win within 8 turns to receive Zombie charmer
    
    Before the fight begins there will be a short conversation between you and the
    fortune teller from alterone, when she vanished the battle will begin
    
    The best course of action here is to first go left and attack the 3 mannequins,
    and then head right to defeat the giant bats (which you should be used to by
    now. Then head on to the main platform to approach the evil puppets, which are
    quite powerful and can poison you, if your characters are around level 7 or 8
    then you shouldn't have to much of a problem with them. Use magic on the dire
    clown as they have strong defences then attack Marionette, but take note of her
    large MP bar. she takes some beating because of her freeze lev.4
    but be persistent and offensive, only
    use your healers to heal.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #09
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Destroy all enemies
    Clear bonus: win within 8 turns to receive 1000g coins.
    
    At the start of this battle u will notice that Max is the other side of the 
    battle field to the rest of your force. but that isn't as critical as it seems.
    
    Use your stronger characters (E.g. May and Luke) to charge up the field to help
    Max out (as all of the harder enemies are up there anyway) and use weaker 
    characters, such as Anri and Gort, to Take the Enemies at the sides. Thatís 
    really all there is to it. Its a battle worth doing again just for levelling
    up and exp.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #10
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    This battle is alot like BATTLE #05. Just head west killing whatever is in your
    path, After killing the first 2 Outlaws, Go towards the chests (south) then
    carry on east across the bridge.
    
    If you have trouble with enemies while heading for the chests, then use Zuika
    to block the bridge.
    Again this battle has no Victory conditions but defeating the Govlivcoch will
    end the battle.
    
    if you do die in this battle, it doesn't matter. The game will carry on
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #11
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat the Master Mage
    Clear bonus: win within 15 turns to receive Elf slayer.
    Characters: Take off Khris and put on Amon (although only lev 5) Because this 
    terrain has alot of sky, and little land, so the birds will help alot.
    
    The battle will begin with alot of talking. They talk about the Lazar eye, as
    many people are lately. When the battle begins, you will notice the familiar 
    skeletons. These shouldn't pose a threat.
    
    watch the 4 lined up Dark Elfs, as they can fire from a distance and will knock
    off alot of HP. also you will be familiar with the Dark Mages, See battle 06 to
    remind you how to deal with that. 
    
    Also new to the game are the Dark Priests, these will heal the enemies so take
    these out first if possible, Especially near the Master Mage. 
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #12
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: EITHER Destroy all enemies OR get to Lone Bridge
    Clear bonus: win within 15 turns to receive 2,000g coins.
    Characters. Take Amon off, and put Zylo on, as there is alot of land on this
    retain and Zylo is a higher level and has a better attack.
    
    Most of the enemies you met in the last battle, so see the guide to that for 
    how to deal with them. The only new enemies for this battle are the Pegasus KT.
    They are like the  Giant bats, but are alot stronger, however your characters 
    are also alot stronger now, so they shouldn't pose much of a threat. 
    
    This battle isn't that hard, and if you have characters below level 8 then this
    would be a good battle to do a few times to gain the levels/
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #13
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat the Silver Knight
    Clear bonus: win within 16 turns to receive Duelist.
    Characters: I wouldn't change the characters that you used for the last battle.
    
    This battle has the much talked about laser eye. You need to move as fast as 
    you can at the bridge, as the laser eye will damage you quite alot, and 
    fires at ALL characters on the bridge. Pay attention to the first move, you can
    see the whole path laser eye will attack. 
    There are 3 turns between each strike of laser eye, when this turn comes, 
    you can avoid the strike by placing your characters on the top & bottom ledges
    of the section. They can't hold all 12 characters though, so place your
    characters with the most HP and defence outside of the field.
    
    Send your faster characters across the bridge to destroy laser eye, The faster
    the better. REMEMBER it isn't the key enemy, the Silver Knight is.
    Other than Laser eye, there are no new enemies, watch out for the Dark elfs,
    south of the bridge.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #14
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    You should be getting used to these battles by now, again this one was no 
    victory conditions and will be quite easy. and you have Wawlock on your team
    for this battle as well.
    
    Killing the Soul eater will end the battle.
    Be wary of the ghosts in the bottom corners, they will try and sneak up #
    unnoticed behind you. they can also move quite far across the battle field.
    The will-o-wisp has enough magic to each cast 1 spell. These spells are quite
    damaging, but wont kill a character on its own.
    
    Because of the characters high defence, you shouldn't struggle, or need to heal
    just go all out and attack what stands in your way, If you do get into trouble
    then head strait for the Soul eater.
    
    if you do die in this battle, it doesn't matter. The game will carry on
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #15

    Characters. I would keep the characters the same
    
    Neither of the sides want to fight each other, but nether will hold back.
    all of the enemies start grouped together but it doesn't last, they will all
    run to meet you on the battle field. The battle will take alot of fighting and
    time, but it isn't really strategic, the only new enemy is the artillery which
    will do alot of damage. This battle is good for levelling characters up.
    
    All characters that you are using in this battle should be promoted by the end
    of it.

    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat the Hellhound
    Clear bonus: win within 10 turns to receive 4000g coins
    Characters. I would keep the characters the same
    
    The only new enemy here is the Hellhound. He is fairly hard to beat, he can 
    cast magic such as blaze and freeze which will damage you alot. 
    
    As long as you have all of your characters promoted there shouldn't be alot of
    trouble. You have seen all of the enemies now and no how they react. The battle
    is long because of the ladders and small passages but shouldn't be a too high
    difficulty,

    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat Balbazak
    Clear bonus: win within 8 turns to receive Marnanbuster
    Characters. I would keep the characters the same
    
    This battle has a few new enemies such as the sea bat, Which is kind of like 
    the giant bat, but stronger, red and near the sea. They mimic the Giant Bat 
    behaviour but can move further, and are stronger.
    
    The Blue dragon wont take much beating, as long as you are quick and send in 
    your strong characters., His attacks will take a lot of HP off most of your 
    characters if the defence isn't high
    
    Balbazak, The main enemy of the battle, should be left until last, as you need
    all of your fire power on him, not because he is strong, but because you need 
    all of your characters there. Lowe to heal after his attack, and Everyone else
    to attack on there turn. IF YOU DON'T ATTACK EACH TURN HE WILL REGAIN HEALTH.
    
    This battle is also good for getting levels up as it shouldn't be that hard.

    Firstly egress from the battle, and raise and save, else you don't really stand
    a chance.
    
    The Only new enemy in this battle is the Conch, Which are not really that hard
    but can poison your characters. 
    
    This battle isn't really key and can be taken in its stride, Just go for the 
    all out attack and levelling up.

    Watch out for the seabats at the edges of the map, They will quickly come in 
    and attack fairly quickly, Other than that, their isn't much to mention about 
    this battle. You've met all of the enemies before except the worms. The Worm is
    fairly easy, except that they poison your characters and can make them sleep.

    Victory conditions: Defeat all enemies
    Clear bonus: win within 6 turns to receive Soulbuster
    Characters. I would keep the characters the same
    
    This battle is similar to the sea battle before, use Hans to Attack far away
    and overboard, and use Anri and Tao's magic, Freeze and Blaze to quickly
    win the battle. MORE ENEMIES WILL APPEAR
    
    It shouldn't be to hard and their are no new enemies. You could do this battle
    a few times for EXP and fun. Egressing will take you to the below deck of the 
    ship so you donít have to go through the talking from the king at the last 
    island.

    Victory conditions: Defeat Dullahan OR get to Dragonia
    Clear bonus: win within 10 turns to receive 7000g gold coins
    Characters. I would keep the characters the same
    
    This is a fairly easy battle, and there are no new enemies, except Dullahan.
    He is the boss of the battle but shouldn't be that hard to defeat if your 
    characters are around level 10-15.
    
    MONSTERS WILL APPEAR WHEN YOUR CHARACTERS ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BATTLE MAP.
    (Turn 6)
    
    The battle isn't key to plot and is worth doing fully to get the EXP.

    BATTLE #22
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat Kane
    Clear bonus: win within 12 turns to receive Ogre Slayer
    Characters. I would keep the characters the same
    
    This battle is key to the plot of the game, The shining force Vs Kane, All of
    the characters in your party have a reason to beat Kane, this is an Epic battle
    
    Being a Key Battle, The enemies are quite hard, and do pose a threat, But 
    persistence is the key. Take them in Waves, starting with the golems. Using
    Gort, Luke, Ken and Mae, to take lead the front, with Tao, Anri and Hans to 
    attack behind the main line. Place your other characters in 'useful' Roles 
    that will still get them EXP, 
    
    Use Gong and Lowe to heal when needed, not forgetting Gong has a high attack
    too. Also Balbaroy can fly above houses, which may be useful.
    
    Push forward in this formation and take out their waves, golems, Mages then
    Dullahams, the priest (as she will heal Kane) the mages. and then surround Kane
    with Luke, Max, Gort and Mae. with Tao and Anri casting blaze and freeze on him
    and Lowe and Gort healing Max. Hans can stand behind them to attack.
    
    DIAGRAM                  KEY
    -------                  ---
    
                             This is the plan I described above. Z is Zylo, O is
      V Z                    Gort, Luke, Ken and Mae, H is HANS, B is Balbaroy, 
       OG                    M is Tao and Anri and X is max. V is Lowe and Gong.
      MOG                    
    X MOG                    This formation allows most people to attack, gain EXP
      HOG                    and will protect Max. It also allows you to heal your
      V B                    Characters fairly quickly. This can be adapted for 
                             every group of enemies, it just takes some working out
                             
    Be careful. However of the Gargoyles (the new flying things). They will fly 
    down to you, but shouldn't reach you until you have defeated the Golems, Max 
    can take care of them if need be.
    
    The battle is long winded so I wouldn't recommend egressing for EXP unless you
    need to.

    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Destroy all enemies OR get to Demon Castle
    Clear bonus: win within 20 turns to receive 8000g coins.
    Characters. I would change your lower level characters for Birds, as there 
    are alot of flyers and mountains.
    
    This battle is simple but annoying, The only new enemy is the bow riders, They
    ,as you may guess by the name, are archers. They shouldn't hurt that much, and
    shouldn't be too hard to kill. Bide your time taking each enemy as they come.
    
    The flyers shouldn't be that much trouble if you have your own in the team.

    BATTLE #24
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat Mishela
    Clear bonus: win within 16 turns to receive Destroyer.
    Characters. I would change your characters back to those that you used for 
    battle 22.
    
    Watch out for the Belial north of Mishela because they will quickly fly down.
    The gargoyles will also fly over to you pretty quickly.
    
    Mishlea's health will restore itself if you go a few turns without attacking.
    When you get round to attacking her be constant, but remember she can attack
    a whole group of you, and will use the light saber which will damage your
    characters quite alot. She is immune to Blaze.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #25
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat all enemies 
    Clear bonus: win within 8 turns to receive 9000g
    Characters. I wouldn't change the characters.
    
    This battle has alot of New enemies, such as the Torch eye, These machines are
    quite strong at attacking you, But Your characters normal attacks should take
    off a worthy amount of damage (providing your characters are in the late teens
    and are not Lowe, Tao or Anri). The minotaur is quite similar to this, except
    has a stronger defence. The Wyvern Is the new flying thing, they are harder 
    than any previous flying thing because they can cast magic, and can attack
    from 2 squares away. Jet (A mechanical Domino) is just that, but without the
    magic. Follow the advice about Torch eye for them.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #26
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat the Demonmaster
    Clear bonus: win within 16 turns to receive sniper
    Characters. i would use flyers such as Balbaroy, Amon and Domino for this
    
    This battle is simple, Use the flyers to fly up for a quick start and 'fight
    behind enemy lines' Then use the others to creep along.
    
    The Ice worms can be quite tricky, but they are similar to the worms earlier in
    the game. The steal claw isn't anything special but they can fly, They should
    not take much effort though.
    
    The Demonmaster is a mage, so follow the principles in other battles about not
    forming your characters up where they can attack many of them. It doesn't have
    alot of power behind it compared to what your characters should be. 
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #27
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat Chaos
    Clear bonus: win within 8 turns to receive 10,000g coins
    Characters. I would revert to: Ken, Tao, Hans, Luke, Lowe, Gong, Gort, Mae, 
    Anri, Balbaroy and Zylo because they should be your strongest team.
    
    With max still in shock from the Death of Kane, he can't talk which means only
    angel wings and Maxís exhaustion can retreat you from battle, As Max cant talk.
    Although there should be no need to in this battle as it is moderate if you use
    the 11 strongest characters in your team, which should be those listed above.
    
    There are no new enemies, but Chaos may take some doing, Persistence is the key
    and so is healing, Make sure you really use Lowe and Gong by keeping them close
    to much needed characters such as Zylo, Luke and Gort. 
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #28
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat the Chimera
    Clear bonus: win within 8 turns to receive Dragonslayer.
    
    This is like one of the recurring battles from Shining Force II (for those of
    you who have played that) And that means that it is good for getting you 
    characters levels up, and Egressing to redo it. 
    
    It is fairly easy, so do it a few times, The only new enemy is the skullforce,
    which is alot like the skeleton's except they are revamped to match your new
    levels.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #29
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat all enemies 
    Clear bonus: NOTHING
    
    This battle is designed to work you up to the final few, The enemies are quite
    hard. The battle is Challenging but your stronger characters will be the key,
    Constantly attack with them, and heal with Lowe and Gong. If you find that you
    don't have enough healers, then substitute a low level character for another 
    Vicar. 
    
    When you get to the skullforce and Blue dragons take out the High Priests first
    as they will heal the others which will make destroying them harder than it 
    needs to be.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #30
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat Ramladu
    Clear bonus: NOTHING
    
    This battle has all of the steel claws and torch eyes from the battle at the
    tower of the ancients, you should know what they are like, They should be a
    little easier if your characters have been levelling up. 
    
    The aim of this battle is to defeat Ramladu, If you are confident that your 
    characters levels are ok (about level 20-25) then you can go strait for him.
    
    However i would send everyone except for Max, Gong and Zylo to Fight the 
    machines. and for tackling Ramladu, I would place zylo opposite, max to the 
    side casting supernova and gong healing zylo.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #31
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat Colossus
    Clear bonus: NOTHING
    
    As Nova said the only head that needs to be destroyed is the middle, But you
    need all the EXP that you can get, so do the battle a few times, killing every-
    thing except the middle head.
    
    DO NOT, group your characters together around the Colossus (pleural) because
    they all have different magic attacks that will take a large group of you out.
    Use characters with a High defence such as Gort and Zylo around that area, Not
    characters with high attack and low defence.
    
    The other enemies come as standard and should fair easy by now. However watch
    out for the blue dragons on the right, when going north through the single file
    corridor.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BATTLE #32
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Victory conditions: Defeat Darksol
    Clear bonus: NOTHING
    
    Oh so many battles together, if you have any unconscious, Kill Max before you 
    start because this battle and the next follow directly on without a break and
    you need all of the characters you have. Also while in Town Buy lots of healing
    seeds, and angel wings, because they could be handy.
    
    For this battle, Defeat all of the enemies first, So that they don't disrupt 
    you while taking on Darksol. They are quite easy and none are new. 
    
    When taking on Darksol, keep your healers back, to heal max, and Zylo. Use 
    those 2 as well as Luke and gong to Take him on, With Tao and Anri vainly 
    casting Blaze and Freeze on him.

    BATTLE #33 DARK DRAGON
    *-+*-+*-+*
    
    Firstly divide your group up so that each head is being attacked at all times,
    pick which ever division is right for you, I make sure that there is 9 strong
    people on each head,Then if defeat the Skullforce which will regenerate, unless
    you put some weak characters on the regeneration spots. 
    
    All you can do i keep attacking, and keep healing. And persistence will pay off
    Heal each turn though, after dark dragons attacks. Make sure Max doesn't die.

    9. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
    *-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*
    
    Q. I donít have half of the characters that are available in the game?
    
    A. Some of the characters are "hidden" or optional, such as Domino (the egg).
       To make sure you get every character make sure you explore everywhere, and
       talk to everybody in every town.
       A guide to where each character can be found is in a brilliant guide, by
       "rippercito" on GameFAQs. There is no point in me replicating what is 
       already there. The URL is: 
     http://db.gamefaqs.com/portable/gbadvance/file/shining_force_rotdd_secrets.txt
       PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FAQ IS ALL HIS WORK, UNLESS STATED. I HAVE NOT 
       CONTRIBUTED TO IT AND AM ONLY REFERRING YOU TO IT.
    
    
    Q. What's all this about Cards? Whatís the point?
    
    A. Cards are new to this version of Shining Force I. The idea of collecting 
       them gives a "replay-value" to the game, The character Mawlock will join you
       in the game, and he will use these cards to summon the ability of the 
       characters on the cards. When you reply the game he will join you sooner.
    
    
    Q. Yogurt? need I ask more?
    
    A. Yogurt...What a funny character, no?...No. Well he is totally useless. In
       the original Genesis/Mega Drive version of the game he was used as a "sprite
       holder" during the making and testing of the game. The programmers took to 
       him, with not getting out much. And he became a mascot, So they left him in
       the end version. For the GBA version to stay true to the original, They had
       to leave him in.
    
    
    Q. Im stuck in a specific battle/area of the game, I don't understand what you
       have written, what should i do?
       
    A. You could check out other guides on GAMEFAQ's for this, or on FAQS.IGN etc.
       or, I don't mind you e-mailing me. My contact details are at the start of
       the guide. I will answer any query about any section of the game, Even if 
       it means re-wording what is already here. Just Ask!
    
    
    Q. Can i use this FAQ on my website.
    
    A. I dunno is your website any good?? E-mail me at my address stated asking 
       about publishing it, and then let me see your website. Then i will decide if
       you can publish it. At the moment, Only the websites above have my 
       permission
    
    Q. I am struggling with getting money to upgrade weapons, Is there any way to
       get more money? (Thanks to M.Marsh)
    
    A. 1. Sell weapons of your characters that you never use in the Force 
       2. Sell the weapons you wish to replace before buying your new ones.
       3. Sell items such as healing herbs, angel wings etc, that you will 
          hardly use.
       4. Keep Egressing from battles; this will not only raise your money,but will
          raise you EXP as well.
       5. Also if you search around for chests, the items in there may be rare, 
          along with the items won from the victory conditions. Selling these items
          will give u extra money.
    
    Q. Do you know if Shining Force II will be re-released on the GBA?
    
    A. Unfortunatly, i don't, As soon as i do find anything out, I'll put the date
       for release in here. I hope it does come out though.

    *-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*-+*
    
    - When fighting enemies that cast magic, Don't group your party together, as 
      it will allow them all do get hurt in 1 attack.
    
    - At least have 1 healer on your force, it is almost essential unless you have
      alot of healing herbs.
    
    - Have at least 1 Magic user, preferably Tao, as she is with you from the start
    
    - Don't put Max in to much danger, if he gets defeated you lose the battle.
