    ***1. Introduction***
    ********************* 
    Hi I'm Eric Lagasse I'm going to make the best Shining Force: 
    Resurrection of the Dark Dragon guide ever! I tried looking for the 
    Shining Force remake ever since it came out. It's just like the 
    original Shining Force for Sega Genesis. Accept better because in the 
    Gameboy Advance version you can collect cards, complete victory 
    conditions, there's new weapons, new items, new characters, new items, 
    and they added more to the story! But I still love the original too 
    it's one of the best games ever! If you have any questions or comments 
    e-mail me at eric_david_lagasse@hotmail.com
    
    ************************
    ***2. Version History***

    Three Years, The Famous Walkthrough For Shining Force Has Returned And

    Private Use For Me Only, Unless You Personally Can't Get Ahold Of Me! 
    So Please Use My Hotmail One, Thank You! Ohhh Yeah I Decided To Take 
    Out The FAQ Section As Well ;) Yep That's About All I Got To Say For 
    Now! Just To Get You An Update On Things! =P
    
    Version 1.16 (10/27/04) Well I got Chapter 4 done all right, and I also 
    changed some things too! It was really long! I put hints in there to. 
    To help you out a little bit more. I'm working on Chapter 5, 6, and 7 
    now so then by next week I'll be working on the last chapter, Chapter 
    8! So enjoy!
    
    Version 1.13 (10/26/04) Howdy! I've go a little more on Chapter 4 done 
    and I'm going to TRY to work on my guide everyday to try to finish it. 
    So I'll probably be finished with my guide THIS WEEKEND!
    
    Version 1.10 (10/25/04) Well it's been approximately 3 weeks since I 
    last updated my guide. Well I've been finishing up some other games, so 
    I can make guides for them too! Well I got chapter 4 partly done! So I 
    hope that helped you a little bit more. I'm doing going to finish my 
    walkthrough probably by this Halloween weekend! So I hope you get a 
    scare! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!
    
    Version 1.07 (10/06/04) Well Hi again just to say that I have finished 
    working on Chapter 3! I'm now going to finish my guide so I hope you'll 
    enjoy it! Oh and I took out the deals part in each section because well 
    after I played the game a second time sometimes the deals were 
    different so I'll just tell you to check the deals to make sure!
    
    Version 0.98 (9/21/04) Today is my Birthday and well my wish didn't 
    come true but I'll get my guide done until the last week of October or 
    maybe earlier because I have a lot of work this next two weeks!
    
    Version 0.95 (9/15/04) I got the Rindo 2nd Visit and Battle 8 finished. 
    I'll be working on this every day now until I finish my guide 
    completely! This is going to be great!
    
    Version 0.92 (9/14/04) I finished the Battle 7 and Manarina parts of my 
    walkthrough. So I'll be working on it again tomorrow sometime.
    
    Version 0.89 (9/13/04) Hi everybody! Just got the Manarina part of the 
    Walkthrough done. Working on the rest of Chapter 2. I probably won't be 
    done this week, but I'll just have to try!
    
    Version 0.87 (9/08/04) Didn't do much today was busy on homework. I 
    just got a tiny bit done on the Walkthrough. I'll work on it a little 
    more tomorrow. Then on Friday and Saturday I won't be working on it 
    because I'm going to see one of my best friends that moved this summer 
    Jayden! That's going to be fun. Then I'm going to really work on it 
    next week because next week is my Birthday Party so I'm really going to 
    work on it!
    
    Version 0.85 (9/07/04) Hi! I added a new Weapon & Item Shop section! 
    You can check it out! I made some new arrangements and got a little 
    more done on the Walkthrough. Just to let you know. I might work on it 
    again later today. But I got homework to do so it'll take awhile!
    
    Version 0.81 (9/05/04) Hey you guys just added a new Story section of 
    my guide, and made some changes to the Table of Contents. Also I fixed 
    several problems I had! So tomorrow I'll be working on the Walkthrough 
    section again and do Chapter 2, and if I get done with Chapter 2 I'll 
    probably work a little bit on Chapter 3. So things are going as they 
    are planned... Eric Lagasse signing off and saying... Have a good Labor 
    Day!
    
    Version 0.78 (9/05/04) Just made some new adjustments to some sections 
    because I made some simple mistakes. It's going to take me a while to 
    finish the Walkthrough because I need to play the game to find out some 
    stuff I need to put in my Walkthrough like part of Chapters 2-8. But it 
    shouldn't take me a long while because I'm Shining Force Wizard! I 
    complete the game in 3 days so I'm guessing it will take me another 5-
    10 days to finish my walkthrough. So I'm going to be busy tonight 
    trying to get to Chapter 2.
    
    Version 0.76 (9/04/04) I told you I would write again today got the 
    Chapter 1 section done! Going to be working on the Chapter 2 section 
    probably later on today! Then I'll write again! I'm on a role today!
    
    Version 0.72 (9/04/04) Hi again working on the long Walkthrough! Almost 
    done with the Chapter 1 section. This is exciting! Oh yeah I wanted to 
    finish the other sections first so I did the Credits and the E-Mail 
    Policy sections are complete except for the FAQ's section. I'll write 
    to you again at the end of the day to see how things are going and how 
    far I have gotten. Talk to you on the next version!
    
    Version 0.60 (9/03/04) Finished the Cheat Codes section! Now the moment 
    we all been waiting for the Walkthrough section! I have only got little 
    done on it probably 2/100's done! I'm going to be working on it 
    tomorrow and that's a promise!
    
    Version 0.56 (9/02/04) Sorry I haven't written in a while I was busy. I 
    got three fourths finished with the Cheat Codes section. I'm really 
    busy I'll do a lot tomorrow since it's Labor Day Weekend! Hurray! I'll 
    get A LOT done this weekend! You never know I might finish the 
    Walkthrough section this weekend. I'll be working on it all this 
    weekend. I'm staying up till 12:00- 1:00 in the morning working on this 
    guide!
    
    Version 0.53 (8/31/04) Finished the Cards section YES! Working on the 
    Cheat Codes section. I hope I'll be done with it in a day or two!
    
    Version 0.48 (8/29/04) Hi again! Just got three fourths done with the 
    cards section my guide is coming along great! I hope I finish it before 
    my birthday which is September 21st this will be my birthday present 
    that'll be really awesome! I'll be finished with the Cards section 
    tomorrow sometime. Then I'll start on the Cheat Codes and a little on 
    the Walkthrough. Man this is great that I'm almost on the Walkthrough 
    section!
    
    Version 0.43 (8/26/04) Got the Items, and Rings section done. Going to 
    work on the Cards and Cheat Codes section in three days, that's because 
    I'm going to my dad's house on the weekend that'll be fun! Well I'll 
    work on this in 3 days then. It'll probably take me a couple of days to 
    finish those sections then I could work on the Walkthrough!
     
    Version 0.35 (8/23/04) Finally got done with the Magic, Spell 
    Chronology, and Weapons section. It took me all day! Tomorrow I'm going 
    to work on the Rings, Items, Cards, and Cheat Codes sections. Then I'm 
    finally going to start on the Walkthrough section. I'm thinking it's 
    going to take me probably 3-7 days to finish the walkthrough if I have 
    nothing to do. So I might start on it tomorrow to if I get lucky and 
    finish the other 4 first!
    
    Version 0.22 (8/22/04) Just FINALLY got done with the long character 
    section! Going to work on the Magic, Spell Chronology, Weapons, Items, 
    Cards, and Cheat Codes section tomorrow. Then when I finish those, 
    which will probably, take a few days. I'll work on the long walkthrough 
    section and maybe the FAQ's sections.
    
    Version 0.18 (8/21/04) Just finished three fourths of the character 
    section I'll be done with it some time today. Probably be don with the 
    Magic, Spell Chronology, Weapons, Items, Cards, and Cheat Code section 
    tomorrow or in two days so I can work on my long walkthrough.
    
    Version 0.10 (8/20/04) Just gotten started and a lot done. Got the

    ***5. Info about the game***
    ****************************
    Shining Force is what I think, is one of the best RPG's I ever played. 
    It is mainly about going into battle, finding items, finding new 
    characters, and just having fun. There are over 100 different monsters 
    you can battle. Each character has there own special ability and 
    techniques. Anyway the game is pretty fun and simple. Just sit back, 
    and relax and read my walkthrough.
    
    **************
    ***6. Story***
    **************
    "In ages long forgotten... Light fought Darkness for control of the 
    world. Dark Dragon led the evil hordes of darkness.
    The Ancients fought back with the Powers of Light.
    Dark Dragon was defeated and cast into another dimension.
    The Lord of Darkness vowed to return in 1,000 years.
    Time passed, and Dark Dragon was forgotten by all.
    Ten centuries of peace ruled the land of Rune.
    Until the kingdom of Runefaust brought war to Rune.
    Hordes of evil creatures ravaged the land.
    Here and there, strongholds of good still held out...
    Awaiting a Hero who could wield the Powers of Light."

    Waral to relax as a shopkeeper.
    
    King Kusko:
    He is the king of Prompt and seems to know much about the past of Max

    (Note: U stands for Unpromoted and P stands for Promoted. I'll give an 
    example if it says U/P. Ok I'll use Max for example, Max doesn't start 
    Supernova Level 1 until Level 12 U/P that means if Max Doesn't get a 
    promotion by level 10, He'll learn Supernova at Level 12. If he gets a 
    promotion by Level 10, he'll learn Supernova at Level 12 Promoted 
    instead. I recommend you get promoted at Level 10. It's your choice.)
    
    (Note 2: When it says already that means it's already been learned, or 
    it means the spell came with level 2 of that spell the same time. I'll 
    give an example Lowe starts his Quick spell at Level 26 Promoted and 
    Quick Spell Level 2 says it's already been learned that means when Lowe 
    got his first Quick spell he got Quick Level 2 with Quick Level 1!)

    ***13. Weapon & Item Shops***
    *****************************
    (This section involves how to work with the Weapon & Items shops in 
    each town. I'll tell you about each option they give you)
    ***********************************************************************
    Buy: Let's you look at different and new items & weapons you can 
    purchase from a shop. Look at the price tag to see how much it costs.
    
    Sell: The item & weapon seller buys items & weapons from you. You earn 
    half the gold from how much it costs. For example a Medical Herb costs 
    10 Gold coins. If you sell it you would get 5 Gold coins back from the 
    seller.
    
    Repair: Repairs items and weapons that have been used in battle. For 
    example if you use the Heat Axe it will cast Blaze Level 2 in battle. 
    So now it's broken if you use it two more times the weapon/item will be 
    gone! So then you go to Repair if you used the item 1 or 2 times.
    
    Deals: This feature is great! After a battle check the Deals option to 
    see if there is a special weapon. Sometimes there is and sometimes 
    there isn't so make sure you check this after each battle! Oh one more 
    thing when you sell a Ring, Special Weapon/Item, it will go into the 
    Deals section. MAKE SURE you don't put too much stuff in it because if 
    you get a special weapon after battle it won't be there!

    Recommended level: 1
    New Members: Ken, Luke, Tao, Hans, and Lowe
    New Cards: Ken, Luke, Hans, and Lowe
    Items: After 2nd battle
    
    After a long intro about Dark Dragon and the Runefaust army you will 
    meet Simone a girl who wants you to read a story to her because her 
    grandfather is out. Anyway now you can name the main character name him 
    anything you want! The default name is Max. So I'll use Max so you 
    understand.
    
    After you name him you are in a battle with your teacher Lord Varios. 
    After the little battle he'll say he needs a rest so now you can move. 
    So go up the stairs and you'll meet your best friend Lowe. After his 
    conversation go back to Lord Varios he'll be called to the castle by a 
    guard. So now go and talk to Lowe one more time and he'll have you 
    split up and look for clues.
    
    Now you'll automatically be sent to the Priest. He'll explain how to 
    Record (or Save) your progress. You can save if you want to just in 
    case if the game freezes and you have to restart again.
    
    Anyway you can now move again. Go and talk to some people and they'll 
    give you advice about some things. Now go to the castle which straight 
    north and talk to the king. He'll explain about some mission you have 
    to accept. Then after that talk to the three people around the king, 
    Varios, Ward, and Nova, then talk to the king again he'll tell you to 
    gather your troops so now go get out of the castle and go straight down 
    a guard will show you where headquarters are. So go in.
    
    At headquarters you'll meet your first companions Ken, Luke, Tao, Hans, 
    and Lowe they will automatically join and they'll tell you different 
    stories about there're lives. You can go to Nova and he'll give you 
    Advice, Statistics, Bank (which stores your money), and Team (which you 
    can decide who you want on the battle field).
    
    KEN, LUKE, TAO, HANS, and LOWE join the Shining Force!
    
    Now we're going to get Ken, Luke, Hans, and Lowe's cards. Just talk to 
    them all a couple of times and you'll get their cards accept for Tao's 
    because you don't get hers until Chapter 2. Now you got KEN, LUKE, 
    HANS, and LOWE's CARDS!
    
    Now go back to the castle and talk to the king again. He'll give you a 
    100 Gold. So you can buy a Herb or two for battle. Now get out of the 
    castle and go down to the item shop and buy a herb for each person and 
    put some in your item box if you want to. Now go down and you will see 
    two guards and they will let you through.

    ***1. Battle 1***
    *****************
    Battle Party: Max, Ken, Tao, Luke, Hans, Lowe, and Gong
    Victory Condition: Defeat the Rune Knight
    Clear Bonus: In 8 turns 250 gold coins
    Enemy Cards: Rune Knight/Have Max defeat the Rune Knight to receive the 
    Rune Knight's Card!
    Items: N/A
    
    Ok here's your 1st battle! It's kind of easy but if you use my codes 
    you 
    will have no problem. So I'll give you some strategies of how to finish 
    the battle so here we go.
    
    Monsters: 5 Goblins, 2 Dark Dwarfs
    Boss: Rune Knight
    Difficulty: 2.5/10
    
    Before you begin your battle there is going to be an earthquake. The 
    Rune Knight starts to talk and tries to find a key to that big door. 
    They will try to stop you but it shouldn't be so hard. Here is how I do 
    it. First kill the Goblins in the front of the line. Then kill the two 
    Dark Dwarfs and if you want, kill the other Goblins after, then defeat 
    the Rune Knight. When you gain 100 EXP you will gain a level. That's 
    awesome!
    
    I recommend you Egress out of battle and try to gain up to level 3. 
    That means DO NOT destroy the Rune Knight just yet kill all of the 
    other monsters first and try to get to Level 2 then use your Egress 
    spell and do the battle over again and get to Level 3. Then kill the 
    Rune Knight. But if you get everyone to Level 3 and there is still 
    monsters on the field just kill the Rune Knight to end battle. After 
    the first battle another battle will start outside the Gate of the 
    Ancients. If you need to save and revive at the Mountain Hut.
    
    Recommended level after battle: 3

    Battle Party: Max, Ken, Tao, Luke, Hans, Lowe, and Gong
    Victory Conditions: Destroy all enemies. Get to Guardiana.
    Clear Bonus: Clear in 12 turns to receive DwarfBuster.
    Enemy Cards: N/A
    Items: N/A
    
    In this battle you can't take the short way to Guardiana because the 
    earthquake has blocked it off. You have to take the long way, which is 
    around the mountains. If you want the Clear Bonus you have got to move 
    quickly. If anybody has died use your Egress spell and revive him or 
    her at the Mountain Hut.
    
    Monsters: 6 Goblins, 3 Dark Dwarfs, and 2 Rune Knights
    Boss: N/A
    Difficulty: 3/10 (5/10 if you want the Clear Bonus)
    
    If you have the movement code on this battle can be really easy! I 
    recommend you at least try to get the DwarfBuster for Max because you 
    will really need it if it has past the 12th turn Egress and try again.
    Try to get everyone up to Level 4. After the battle head straight into 
    Guardiana.

    Recommended Level: 4
    New Members: Gort and Mae
    New Cards: Gort
    Items: Antidote, Angel Wing, Power Wine, Defense Potion, Rousing Ring, 
    and 1 Empty Chest
    
    When you enter Guardiana the two guards at the entrance will talk to 
    you that Runefaust has invaded their country. So now it's time to get 
    Gort. On the right of the Item and Weapon shop go into that building 
    you will see Gort on the right. Talk to him. Luke will come up and tell 
    you that Gort is a great warrior and he wants you to let him join. Then 
    Gort joins.
    
    GORT joins the Shining Force!
    
    Now you can go to the Weapon shop. Buy Luke the Short Axe, and at the 
    Item shop you can buy some Herb or some Seed if you're out of any, and 
    buy a couple of Steel Rings for some people to equip.
    
    Now go into the castle and you will see Kane and Varios in battle. Kane 
    says that he has found what he was looking for The Light Saber! Then 
    Varios will tell him there is no such thing in Guardiana. So then Kane 
    uses his sword the Dark Saber. Then Varios dies. Then Mae comes and 
    tries to stop Kane, and Kane attack and then Max blocks his attack, and 
    Kane asks who he was and he says his name is Max. Then Kane starts to 
    get a pain in his head about something. You'll find out later on. So 
    then Kane leaves. Now you will see the king he will tell you to go to 
    Manarina and see his daughter Anri. Then Mae joins!
    
    MAE joins the Shining Force!
    
    Now talk to Ward and he will tell you that the Light Saber belonged to 
    Max himself! Ward said a knight found a bag along shore after they 
    found Max, and it had a sword in it that was as light as a feather. So 
    he hid the sword in the treasury by the castle.
    
    Ok now we need to get some items. First go to the treasury on the left 
    of the castle and get all the items in the chests. Antidote, Angel 
    Wing, Power Wine, Defense Potion, and the Rousing Ring. Use the Power 
    Wine on someone in your battle party that has low attack power, DO NOT 
    use it on Tao, use the Defense Potion on Tao! If you don't want to use 
    it on someone else, and equip the Rousing Ring on Max for now. (It's an 
    Anti-Sleep).
    
    Now to get Gorts Card. Not Mae's you don't get hers till Chapter 2. 
    Exit the castle and go straight to the left of the Weapon and Item 
    shop. Go across the bridge where the doghouse is and the dog, and talk 
    to the Granddaughter of Gort a couple of times in the House by the 
    doghouse. Now you got GORT's CARD!
    
    Exit town and prepare for another battle for Alterone!

    Battle Party: Max, Ken, Tao, Luke, Hans, Lowe, Gong, Gort, and Mae
    Victory Conditions: Destroy all enemies
    Clear Bonus: In 10 turns 400 Gold Coins
    Enemy Cards: N/A
    Items: N/A
    
    Before you start Nova recommends you use a decoy so you can get to 
    Alterone. NO not yet you have to get everyone to level 5. It maybe 
    tough for Gort and Mae because they're only on Level 2. But that 
    doesn't stop you! Have Gort and Mae attack the Dark Dwarfs. If you 
    almost run out of enemies and you didn't get your party to Level 5. 
    Then Egress and do it again! This works perfectly with CodeBreaker 
    codes because if you had the Movement code on you can get to Level 5 
    and then you don't have to kill all the enemies you could just get Max 
    to Alterone it's that easy!
    
    Monsters: 5 Giant Bats, 5 Dark Dwarfs, and 5 Rune Knights
    Boss: N/A
    Difficulty: 5/10 (3/10 if you plan to use the decoy method to Alterone)
    
    There is now no more Goblins in the on your journey. But now there is 
    Giant Bats they are very tricky to hit! They can put you to sleep too!
    So be careful! It is a lot easier to hit them with swords, spears, and 
    magic. Again I recommend you have Gort and Mae attack the Dark Dwarfs 
    because they can get 48 EXP from then on till they are at Level 4. Tao 
    should have Blaze Level 2 now so the battles will get easier with her 
    around! But don't use it all the time though because you will really 
    need it on the Giant Bats and the Rune Knights. After the battle head 
    to Alterone.

    Medical Herbs, 2 Middle Swords, Wooden Arrow, Life Loaf, 100 Gold, 
    Defense Potion, Wooden Staff, and 5 Empty Chests (There's some more 
    after the 4th battle)
     
    When you first enter Alterone talk to some people for information, but 
    first go to the first house to the left and go down stairs and get the 
    Bronze Lance and the 70 Gold from the two chests. Give the Bronze Lance 
    to Ken and equip it. Then get out of that house and talk to the lady in 
    weird clothing with the crystal ball on the left of that building that 
    you were just in. Then she will say do you want to know your future say 
    yes and she will say the road that lies north of Rindo is with monsters 
    and you will not get pass.
    
    Ok now to get more gold and goodies! First go to the house with the a 
    door leading inside and there will be another door go in that one and 
    you will find a Medical Herb, put it in your item box. Then go to the 
    Church it's on the left of the castle and get the chests with some 
    goodies in it In one of the chest you'll get the Middle Sword equip it 
    onto Max and the other a Healing Seed. Now go by bridge by the river 
    and you will see a girl standing at the bank, if you go to the right of 
    the girl you will see a cart push the cart towards the girl then talk 
    to her and she will say that you got mud all over her new dress. So she 
    pushes you into the river and onto an island with a chest open the 
    chest and you'll receive a Power Wine. Use the Power Wine on anyone 
    that doesn't have enough attack power except Tao. Then run back into 
    the river and you'll be by the girl again.
    
    Now go into the place below the Church and go down the stairs to get a 
    Medical Herb. Now go into the Weapon Shop and open the three chests to 
    receive a Healing Seed, and 2-50 Gold.
    
    Now go back into the Weapon Shop and talk to the Merchant in the middle 
    and he'll ask you if your name is Max say Yes. Then he'll say if 
    Guardiana has been wiped out say Yes again. Then he'll go inform to the 
    castle. Then he'll come back and he'll say that it's ok to go into the 
    castle now. But first we have to buy some weapons. Buy a DwarfBuster 
    for Luke and Gort. In the Item shop you could buy and equip some Evade 
    Rings to a couple of people too. Then buy a Voodoo Staff for Tao and 
    Lowe. Now you should be all set to go into the castle.
    
    Go into the castle and talk to the people and search the castle for 
    goodies. You should find Wooden Arrow, Healing Seed, Life Loaf, Middle 
    Sword, 100 Gold, Defense Potion, and a Wooden Staff. First of all 
    discard the Wooden Arrow and the Wooden Staff, put the Healing Seed in 
    your Item Box, Give and Use the Life Loaf on Tao, Give and Equip the 
    Middle Sword on either Luke or Gort which ever has lower attack power, 
    Give and Use the Defense Potion on who ever needs more Defense, and 
    there is more chest to be found but you don't get them after Battle 4. 
    Oh yeah MAKE SURE at the end of every battle you check the Deals in the 
    Weapons and Items Shops they might have VERY good weapons, because if 
    you check it now there will be a Jagged Flash in there for Luke or 
    Gort. Equip it on whoever has the lowest attack power. The Jagged Flash 
    can always hit flying monsters. Look at the Weapon & Item Shops section 
    for more information.
    
    Ok go down the stairs on the left of the king and keep going a guard 
    will stop you and say you can't go past. Did you notice the two Rune 
    Knights at the top? The guard will say Rune Knights? What Rune Knights? 
    There are no Knights here. Now go back up stairs. Do as told. I'll tell 
    you what's down there after Battle 4 because then you can go down 
    there.
    
    Now talk to Khris. She's right below the king. Talk to her then talk to 
    the King of Alterone. He'll tell you some things and then he'll leave 
    follow him. (On the right of the stairs is the Wooden Arrow). Go down 
    the stairs and you'll meet 2 Rune Knights and...Kane! Talk to Kane and 
    he'll throw you into jail with the priest in there too. Talk to him and 
    save. Then search the bars of the cell and Khris will come and let you 
    out. Talk to her again and she'll join.
    
    KHRIS joins the Shining Force!
    
    She'll show you a secret passage take it! Up north you'll see a chest 
    with a Healing Seed in it take it and put it in your Item Box. (You 
    could've gotten that chest before you got thrown into jail you just go 
    into headquarters and keep going right). Now if you follow the passage 
    it'll lead to headquarters. Before you exit make sure each person on 
    your Battle Party has at least 2 Healing Seeds or Medical Herbs with 
    them, and equip the Rousing Ring on Khris because this next battle has 
    bats and you really need to level up Khris!
    
    Now exit and prepare for your 4th and final battle of Chapter 1!

    When you start you will see Kane and he's telling you that you're going 
    to die here and he's going to watch! Uh-Oh! Then Rune Knight comes and 
    says that Lord Darksol wants him to go back to Runefaust at once 
    because they have new information. Whew! That was close! Anyway this 
    battle may be tough. Because now there is a Dark Mage and 2 Snipers! Be 
    careful because the Dark Mage can cast Blaze Level 2 and the Snipers 
    can shoot Bows and Arrows. But they're easy to kill. Try to get the 
    Clear Bonus as fast as possible!

    This is a pretty tricky battle. I'd say first attack the Bats. Oh yeah 
    make sure that Khris is equipped with the Rousing Ring. Have Khris 
    attack most of the enemies until she is on Level 5, then Egress and do 
    the battle over and have EVERYONE attack until they are on Level 6. If 
    you win the Jagged Flash give it to Luke or Gort whoever doesn't have 
    the one you got from the Deals section.

    After the battle you will see Khris again and she says she wants to 
    stay with the Shining Force. So then Khris actually joins the force. 
    Then Lowe comes and he says that he really likes Khris. So then Khris 
    leaves. Now go on the right of the building with the two doors on the 
    left of the castle that go inside it, and stand between the two bushes 
    Yogurt comes and starts jump roping and exercising. Then you just have 
    to wait till he's done then he'll go away. I just wanted to show you a 
    secret you didn't have to do it. We're going to get another card 
    Khris's card. Talk to the person walking around right outside the 
    castle a couple of times and he'll give you KHRIS's CARD!
    
    Anyway go into the castle and go to the room on the left of the king 
    and that's the room with the 2 Rune Knights that ran away. Now you can 
    enter. There are three chests. The two that are on the sides are empty 
    and the one in the middle has 50 Gold Coins in it. Oh yeah MAKE SURE at 
    the end of every battle you check the Deals in the Weapons and Items 
    Shops they might have VERY good weapons, because if you check it now 
    there will be a Jagged Flash in there for Luke or Gort. Equip it on 
    whoever has the lowest attack power. The Jagged Flash can always hit 
    flying monsters.
    
    Now before you do anything make sure you HAVE everything you need! If 
    you do then talk to the king and he'll show you a Dragon's Head Statue 
    that has a chain inside. But first you have to say yes before he'll 
    show you the statue. Then go to the statue that was displayed and 
    search it. Pull the chain and a secret passage will show through the 
    waterfall that leads you to the town of Rindo!
    
    It will tell you that the Shining Force has come across the town of 
    Rindo a town of Merchants that is close by the mage town of Manarina. 
    Where you need to see Anri.
    
    CHAPTER 1: RUNEFAUST INVASION: OVER!
    
    In the next part you have to go with Narsha's little adventure called

    Shining Force in Chapter 4!

    When this little epilogue starts you will see Darksol, Ramladu, Elliot, 
    and Balbazak having a conversation about the Shining Force and how 
    Darksol's forces couldn't open the Gate of the Ancients by Guardiana. 
    So Darsol plans to open the eastern gate another Gate of the Ancients 
    by Runefaust. Now then Narsha tries to budge in and yells at her father 
    (Ramladu) because Runefaust attacked Guardiana with no reason. So then 
    King Ramladu traps Narsha in her bedroom and she starts to think if her 
    father is possessed by Darksol. Then all of a sudden 2 Mages come and 
    they say that they have brought a message from Lord Darksol saying that 
    they're going to put her to sleep and she won't feel any pain because 
    they said that she is so beautiful that she belongs in heaven. Then all 
    of a sudden someone comes...Mawlock the Card Master! He destroys the 
    two mages and explains what is and what he's doing there. He explains 
    that she has the blood of Ramladu and she can fight. He wants her to 
    meet up with the Shining Force and help them through their adventure. 
    So then she says that she must leave her kingdom and meet up with the 
    forces of the light and when she returns she doesn't want to but she 
    has to defeat her father because he has changed by Darsol. So then 
    there is a flash and enemies surround Narsha, and she wonders why 
    Mawlock isn't there. So then a Battle begins with just her. That sucks! 
    But these enemies are so easy and she has the Attack Level 1 spell! Now 
    for battle!

    Items: 2 Medical Herbs, and 1 Shower Cure
    
    You can beat the battle by losing too. But I recommend you finish the 
    battle so you can level up. Here is my battle strategy. Have Narsha use 
    Attack Level 1 on herself. Then get the chests, which contain Shower 
    Cures, Medical Herbs, and Healing Seeds. Make sure you don't get too 
    over flowed with items because the items will go into your Item Box, 
    which can also be used, by Max and the Shining Force, and with Narsha's 
    battles you can't get items from the Item Box.
    
    Monsters: 4 Giant Rats, 3 Giant Spiders, 2 Giant Scorpions, and 1 Dark 
    Mage
    Boss: N/A
    Difficulty: 3/10 (With Zuika 1/10)
    
    After about 3 turns a wall will break open and Narsha thinks it's enemy 
    reinforcements, but it's not it's Zuika an insect type creature who 
    joins Narsha because he said that he felt good inside Narsha so he'll 
    help with the battle. Now it's EASY! If anyone gets hurt have Narsha 
    use her Aura spell.

    When you first enter Rindo go to Headquarters and talk to Mae a couple 
    of times and she'll finally give you her card! Now you finally got 
    MAE's CARD, now let's get down to business.
    
    First of all go to the Weapons Shop right nest to Headquarters and buy 
    a Power Staff for Tao, Lowe, and Khris. Then go to the Items Shop and 
    buy a couple or more Charm Rings for whoever needs it if you have 
    enough money. (The Charm Ring raises Magic Resistance by 10%). Then buy 
    some more things if you need them. Now there is play you can watch I 
    think it's funny it's the building right above Headquarters. Check it 
    out!
    
    Now go talk to some people to find out more things that are 
    interesting. You can talk to Broken in the Weapon Shop up the stair for 
    information you'll meet him several times in the game and NO he doesn't 
    join that's a pity. Ok now go to the building with the bars around it 
    in the top right-hand corner of town and go in and open the chest to 
    receive the only item in town for now on the SPEED RING, which raises 
    Agility by 4! Equip it on whoever needs it. Then go to the building 
    right above it that is where Gunts is. Which is the home of the famous 
    Dr. Crock! He'll show you Gunt's steam suit you have to watch it in 
    order to get Gunts in Chapter 4. After that go to the mayors house 
    which is between the church and where the Speed Ring was and talk to 
    the Mayor. Max says that the King of Guardiana has passes away so then 
    he'll open the fence to the West of Rindo so you can go to Manarina. 
    Save and prepare for battle! Make sure you have all the items you need!

    In the first battle in Chapter 2 you'll face your new enemies the

    If think about it Luke and Gort both have the Jagged Flash now so they 
    can get rid of the Giant Bats. If you want to get to Level 7 remember 
    to Egress if no one has gotten to Level 7. Here's a tip if you want to 
    make your group gain levels fast do this. Whoever you want to gain a 
    level give them the Rousing Ring and have them attack till they are on 
    Level 7 then have them give the Rousing Ring to the next person you 
    want to gain levels and so on and so on. If you gotten everyone to 
    Level 7 and if there is still monsters out there, put a decoy with 
    massive defense power like Luke or Gort then have Max sneak into 
    Manarina! Try it if you have already gotten to Level 7. After battle 
    head right into Manarina or go back into Rindo if you forgot anything.

    When you enter Manarina talk to some people before you go inside. Then 
    when you go inside you'll go straight to Anri. Max will say that her 
    father (King Guardiana) has passed away from the army of Runefaust. So 
    then Tao will come and talk to Anri about Max and why he was at 
    Guardiana. So then it will show a scene with Max and Anri talking. Max 
    talks about why he was at Guardiana and that he lost his memory. So 
    then Anri says enough and she knows all about the Runefaust army from 
    Ortrant So then Anri joins!
    
    ANRI joins the Shining Force!
    
    After the little sequence Anri will be talking to Tao and Tao will say 
    that her and Anri should fight together and Tao will fight with her 
    life to protect Anri if she has to, but then Anri says nonsense she can 
    protect herself so now you can walk around. After Anri joins if you 
    have a Steel Ring in the Item Box give her one!
    
    Ok before we forget I'll show you another secret DON'T go into the door 
    where Anri was standing go back to Rindo and somewhere around the town 
    you will see Yogurt digging a hole somewhere! I'm not sure where he's 
    at though because I accidentally missed it so when I play again I'll 
    make sure I don't miss it again!
    
    Now go back to Manarina and don't go in the door where Anri was 
    standing. Go to the right and talk to some people for information, 
    special things, and other cool stuff! Then go to the place with all the 
    bookshelves and go to the door on the left and talk to the mage a 
    couple of times and he'll give you information about a Domingo Egg. He 
    says to check that machine. Search the colorful machine to the left and 
    you'll get the Domingo Egg! Put it in your Item Box for now it'll be 
    use to you later on. Now go in the stairs on the top right of the place 
    with the bookshelves and when you get to the next part DON'T go up the 
    next set of stairs! Talk to the wizard by the weird machine first. 
    She'll say that she has invented a machine that can change a human into 
    an animal! Say yes and watch. Pluck...Pluck...Pluck...Now you are a 
    CHICKEN! You can't talk to anybody or go back the way you came so just 
    have to go to the stairs to the left so go in. Now keep following the 
    path till you come with a mage and a set of stairs going up and down. 
    Take the one that goes up and now follow the path till you see a mage 
    standing by a slide PUSH him down! Now go down the slide and down the 
    stairs until you see a guard. Talk to the guard and he'll let you 
    through. Then go in the door and talk to the wizard she'll turn you 
    back into a human. After you've been turned back get the chest to 
    receive TAO's CARD! Now that you have gotten Tao's card now it's time 
    to get Anri's card. First go back the slide and go up it you won't fall 
    down. Now go to the mage that is by the two stairs going up and down 
    and take the stairs going down this time. You'll be in Anri's room. 
    Search the bookshelf and you'll receive ANRI's CARD!
    
    Talk to some people that you have missed. Especially Arthur witch is by 
    the 2 T-Shirts up in the stairs by the machine that turn you into a 
    chicken. Then watch the person by the slide tries to climb back up, and 
    many different things.
    
    Now that you've done everything I had said go into the door at the 
    entrance where Anri was and go in. Talk to the girl in the blonde hair 
    for information then talk to Ortrant right above the girl with blonde 
    hair. He's the leader of Manarina. Max tells him that he is a pupil of 
    Lord Varios of Guardiana, and then he says he thinks he heard his name 
    before but then he says never mind. Then he asks if Runefaust attacked 
    Guardiana. Then Max says it's true. Then he asks you to retrieve a 
    special item for him in the Cavern of Darkness called the Orb of Light 
    because he thinks it's the key to unlock the mystery of the Legacy of 
    Gods. Now go in the door above Ortrant and keep going down and talk to 
    the wizard and he'll say that you can't escape the Cavern of Darkness 
    alive. Now it's time to battle!
    
    Now onto battle number 7!

    out later on! HA! HA! HA! HA! Now you can but the Orb of Light in your 
    Item Box for now.
    
    Now after that go back to Ortrant and he'll say that not everyone can 
    get the Orb of Light, only the chosen ones by the spring. The spring 
    has chosen you and your comrades to serve the Powers of Light. Now from 
    now on you are known as the "SHINING FORCE!" Now you must go to the 
    eastern continent you will find a country called Prompt, where the 
    ancestors of the gods live. They will know where the Legacy of the Gods 
    sleeps and know of Metapha. Then he says continue your journey without 
    fear and the Light will always be with you!
    
    Now after that long conversation with Ortrant talk to the people in 
    Manarina again they'll have more information. Talk to the mage where 
    you got the Domingo Egg a couple of times and he'll give you more 
    information.
    
    Now we're going to get Arthur just talk to him and he'll join!
    
    ARTHUR joins the Shining Force!
    
    And he'll give you his card after he joins! You have just gotten 
    ARTHUR'S CARD!
    
    Now you can leave Manarina and head back to Rindo!

    When you enter Rindo let's make some adjustments. Now you have 12 
    members on your team. So that means you cannot have any more after 
    that. You can still get members to join but you can't put them in 
    battle. So if you want to have someone on the battle field and someone 
    you don't want, go into Headquarters and talk to Nova and go to the 
    TEAM option and the members with the O (Circle) by them that's the ones 
    that are going into battle with you and the ones without the circle 
    aren't going into battle with you. If you want someone in just press 
    the A Button to uncheck them then check the one that you do want in. 
    That's all for that!
    
    Now if you are going to have Arthur on the battlefield with you, equip 
    the Power Ring on him. And if you have some Steel Rings in the Item Box 
    give one of the Steel Rings to him.
    
    Now we're all set! First you can go to the Mayor's house and he'll say 
    that you can't use his family boat till you find his Grandson because 
    he was never seen anywhere. And if you find his Grandson you can use 
    his boat as much as you like! Wow that cool! As so we think.
    
    Well first of all if you talk to everybody they'll have some new 
    information about that you've gone to Manarina and there is now a 
    circus in town.
    
    Anyway now to begin. Go to the place where the circus is supposed to be 
    and now there's a circus there! Talk to the merchant by the man at the 
    harbor (he's on the right of the circus) and he'll say that the mayor's 
    grandson was in there since a few days ago and he never came out since! 
    So he'll let you through. Now time to do the...Circus Battle!
    
    Enter the tent to start Battle 8!

    Victory Conditions: Defeat the Marionette
    Clear Bonus: In 8 turns receive Zombie Charm
    Enemy Cards: Marionette/Gort takes the final blow.
    Items: 50 Gold, Steel Arrow, and Defense Potion
    
    Ok when you begin, there will be MISHAELA! Remember that witch with the 
    crystal ball in Alterone. Then Anri says that Mishaela is from 
    Runefaust! And Tao says she has awesome powers. Then Mishaela says she 
    is from Runefaust. And Kane wasn't up to the task so Mishaela is here 
    to finish it. And you'll receive the most painful death ever! Yeah 
    Right! You should be strong enough to do the job.
    
    Monsters: 3 Giant Bats, 3 Mannequins, 3 Evil Puppets, and 2 Dire Clowns
    Boss: Marionette
    Difficulty: 7.5/10
    
    If you want to complete this battle, level Arthur if you have him, to 
    level 7. Then Egress and do it again and level everyone up to Level 8. 
    This battle can be tough because all the monsters have high attack 
    accept for the Giant Bats. The Mannequins can poison you. And the Evil 
    Puppets can put you to sleep and use Freeze Level 1 at you so be 
    careful. The big guy, the big guy the Marionette can cast FREEZE LEVEL 
    4! So be careful. Well it doesn't do much damage that's why I wanted 
    you to get to Level 7 or else you would have been a goner. I have to 
    tell you something some people may have never new but Level 3 of all 
    Attack Magic is the strongest! So that's going to help you out. And 
    when the Marionette is left have Gort kill him to receive the 
    MARIONETTE CARD!

    When you finished Battle 8, now you can talk to the people of Rindo 
    again and now they have brand new information! You can go back to the 
    Play and watch it again if you want to. This time the Shining Force 
    beats the Runefaust Army! Yeah! If you go to the place where Guntz is 
    he'll try his demonstration again. And if you go to Broken's house 
    he'll too have new information.
    
    Now since you talked to most of the important people now go back to the 
    Mayor's house and talk to him he'll say he thanks you for saving his 
    grandson. And you can take his boat and the Light will always be with 
    you!
    
    Now go to the harbor and now you can go on the ship. Go on and Anri 
    will say that with that ship they can now catch up to Runefaust! And 
    Max says that now they can learn the Legacy before Runefaust does. Yay 
    now we're almost done with the game! But wait there's a strange 
    presence...MISHAELA! You thought wrong! It's not the end of the game! 
    Mishaela will say that she is mad because you have defeated her 
    Marionettees and you will suffer pain that is 100 times worse than what 
    you caused them! Uh! Oh! Mishaela will start to burn the ship! Max says 
    it's too dangerous and that Mae has to take Anri and run! So then they 
    run away without Max. Then Mishaela will say that they will make a 
    settle score when he is exhausted and after your journey she'll claim 
    your life! So then Mishaela disappears. And Mae starts calling for Max 
    to run. And Max wants stay because he needs a ship. So then Max runs 
    back to Rindo! AAAAHHHHHHH! That sucks. Then the ship sinks.
    
    Now after your ship sunk you have to go to the Mayor's house. So do it 
    and talk to him. And he'll say that that was the last boat in Rindo and 
    not having a boat would be a tough journey. Then he'll ask you if you 
    really have to go east say YES. Then he'll say avoid Bustoke and cross 
    over the Pao Plains. That's unnecessary because you're going to be 
    there anyway. And go to Urbanatol there will be a ship. And if you need 
    guidance you should go to Shade Abbey. And if you want to know more ask 
    his son.
    
    So ask his son the merchant above him and he'll say if your going north 
    from here you should go to Shade Abbey first. In the abbey you will 
    find someone to guide you. Then, you should be able to safely negotiate 
    the mountain road to Bustoke. 
    
    Now you can save and exit Rindo and head north to Shade Abbey.

    indeed! He says his name is Darksol and he is the leader of the 
    Runefaust Army! For a second there I thought Kane was the leader! 
    Actually I knew that but I'm trying to confuse you! Then Max asks what 
    has happened to the Priest who was in this church. And Darksol said he 
    knew more about the legacy more than the king of Guardiana. So he 
    killed the Priest! And Darksol was seriously wounded after he fought

    to come through. Narsha says by the looks of it not even Runefaust's 
    army doesn't know about the secret passage that they're taking. Then 
    Narsha says the old Guardiana army has regrouped on the western 
    continent, with new troops. And that they are fighting Runefaust and 
    they have to join up with them (The Shining Force). 
    
    So now a new battle begins with Narsha and Zuika.

    Items: Defense Potion and Healing Seed
    
    Before the battle begins Narsha and Zuika are now talking right by the 
    town of Runefaust. Then Narsha takes Zuika and herself to the Runefaust 
    port now a battle begins! This battle may be tough because of the 
    Kraken in the water! And the boss is Gobgovitch he's pretty easy!
    
    Monsters: 7 outlaws and 1 Kraken
    Boss: Gobgovitch
    Difficulty: 5.5/10
    
    This can be pretty easy. First of all have Narsha use Attack Level 1 on 
    herself to gain 8 more attack power. Then have Narsha and Zuika Level 
    up to Levels 6-8. Have Narsha get the Defense Potion from the chest and 
    use it on her. Now make sure Narsha or Zuika have one space left in 
    their Item Slots now have Narsha or Zuika stand on the bridge and wait 
    for the Kraken to attack you. After he does wait till Narsha's or 
    Zuika's turn then have them attack and kill the Kraken. When dead he'll 
    drop the Heavy Mace! If Narsha has it equip it on her, if Zuika has it 
    give to Narsha and wait for Narsha's turn and then have Narsha equip it 
    on herself. Now kill the rest of the Outlaws and now have Narsha attack 
    and kill Gobgovitch to receive GOBGOVITCH'S CARD! After the battle 
    Narsha and Zuika think about taking the ship but they agreed it's too 
    risky because there's monsters out there. So then Mawlock shows up 
    again and he wants to show them a machine that makes you go to anyplace 
    you want to!

    Now the Shining Force has arrived at the Mountainous town of Bustoke 
    what could Runefaust be up to!
    
    When you arrive at Bustoke talk to the people there. They say that all 
    the men in Bustoke are working for Runefaust, and that a wolf named 
    Zylo has gone crazy! So they locked him away.
    
    Well there are so many things to do here so I'll tell you what to do. 
    First DO NOT promote yourself just yet wait till Chapter 4, and then 
    I'll tell you what to do. Now go to the item shop and buy each person a 
    Silver Ring if you have the money. Then check the deals to make sure 
    there aren't any new items, and then buy yourself as much items and 
    weapons as needed.
    
    Now go to the house with the red roof and talk to the lady on the left 
    her name is Diane and she is an Archer like Hans! But she says talk to 
    her mother first so talk to her mother on the right of her. She gives 
    you some information about all the men that have been captured from 
    their town, and she'll allow Diane to go with you. So talk to Diane and 
    she'll now join the force!
    
    DIANE joins the SHINING FORCE!
    
    Now give her the Power Ring and put her on the group and take one of 
    your Healers out (Lowe, Khris, and Gong). I'd suggest Gong, but it's 
    your choice. But if you want to make arrangements you can like putting 
    in Amon and Balbaroy. I suggest it like this put in Balbaroy give him 
    the Power Ring and take out Gong. But again it's your choice.
    
    Now go to the little place on the right of where Diane joined and 
    you'll see a door going up. Go in it and you'll see a cave go in that 
    and keep going up and you'll see an old man and Boken climbing up the 
    mountain! Remember Boken from Rindo. You can't talk to him now though. 
    But now if you want to see the place where Zylo is go to the left of 
    that cave and keep going down the bridge and you'll see a girl guarding 
    the den and the den where Zylo is! But if you talk to the girl she'll 
    say that Zylo has gone crazy and only if they had Moonstone to cure 
    him! Well get out of there and go back to where the Weapon and Item 
    shops are and go right until you see a house go inside and talk to the 
    old man he says to cure Zylo you need to go and save the men at Bustoke 
    Quarry and grab the Moonstone and if you give the Moonstone back the 
    old man he'll make Lunar Dew, which will cure Zylo!
    
    If you keep going right you'll be at the Bustoke Quarry and a battle 
    begins!

    the secret weapon the LASER EYE and they moved it into position. Then

    the monster look gross, then Diane says, "Hans you're making us Archer 
    look bad!" And Hans says oops I made her mad! Now the battle begins!

    At the beginning of the battle go to team and mark off all the

    When you return to Bustoke DO NOT give the Moonstone to the old man 
    just yet. I want to show you something! This is only if you want to see 
    YOGURT again and if you want KOKICHI to join later on! Well go to the 
    second door on the left of the Weapon and Item shops and go down the 
    stairs and you'll see a man with wings that is Kokichi and his 
    assistant standing there. Touch the machine that is bouncing around and 
    Kokichi will tell you to keep your hands off his machine and Max says 
    that he never seen a machine like that before so Kokichi takes you 
    outside and shows you his demonstration. When he does it you'll see 
    Yogurt flying with him! LOL! And then Kokichi crashes and Yogurt 
    squeaks and goes away. Now if you would have given the old man the 
    moonstone and then went to Kokichi you would have never seen Yogurt 
    flying with him! 
    
    Now go back to the old man and give him the Moonstone and he'll make 
    Lunar Dew for you now go back to Zylo's cave and talk to the girl. 
    She'll open the cage for you. And you'll automatically go inside. When 
    you're inside you'll see Zylo and Zylo tells Max to go away or he'll 
    tear him apart! So then Max tells him to drink the Lunar Dew and Zylo I 
    guess was about to tear Max apart but then he told him to hurry and 
    give it to him so Zylo drinks it and he makes a howling sound and then 
    Diane asks Zylo if he's ok and Zylo says I'll be fine. Then Zylo asks 
    Max if he was Max of the Shining Force and Max says yes, but how do you 
    know my name? And Zylo says that he heard it from Lord Ortrant of 
    Manarina! So then Zylo says he'll be a great help to you. So then...
    
    ZYLO joins the SHINING FORCE!
    
    Now go and talk to some of the people again and they'll say some 
    interesting things! Now if you want go back to the cave on the way to 
    Zylo's den the one where Boken and the old man are and Boken will be 
    done climbing the mountain talk to him and he asks Max if Max wants to 
    give it a try. Oh and go to Headquarters and I suggest you take out 
    (this is your choice) one of these guys 1 Archer, 1 Knight, 1 Birdman, 
    1 Warrior, or 1 Healer, which for me Khris is the last Healer in my 
    group. I'd have to say Ken! So I'll kick out Ken and put in Zylo!
    
    Now if you're ready take the path by the church to start another

    awesome attack power so look out! But at the very beginning Nova says 
    that Lone Bridge leads to the Pao Region so you're almost there!
    
    Monsters: 5 Pegasus Knights, 2 Dark Priests, 5 Skeletons, 2 Dark Elves, 
    and 2 Lizardmen
    Boss: N/A
    Difficulty: 5/10
    
    Well first of all get Zylo up to Level 11 just like the others because 
    he's at Level 9. And then get everyone up to Level 11 and at the very 
    top by Lone Bridge you'll see a Pegasus Knight. Have Zylo kill it to 
    receive the PEGASUS KNIGHT'S CARD! If there are still enemies there, 
    bring Max to Lone Bridge to end battle.
    
    After the battle search the side of the mountain where the Lizardman, 
    the Dark Priest, and the Pegasus Knight were to receive the Darling 
    Dress for Anri!

    Items: N/A
    NEW MEMBER: PELLE
    
    Now this battle is going to be hard! Because it has the Laser Eye (the 
    secret weapon of Runefaust) on their side! It shows a scene with a Rune 
    Knight named Pelle and the Silver Knight talking. Pelle says that he is 
    no longer going to take orders from Runefaust. So then the Silver 
    Knight says, "Go ahead do whatever you want." And he turns his back 
    then he pushes Pelle off the cliff. So now the battle begins with the 
    Laser Eye!
    
    Monsters: Laser Eye, 6 Pegasus Knights, 6 Lizardmen, 2 Dark Priests, 
    and 3 Dark Elves
    Boss: Silver Knight
    Difficulty: 8/10
    
    This is the part where I tell you what the Laser Eye does! Well on his 
    turn he starts counting down like on turn 1. It'll show a battle 
    sequence going with the Laser Eye and then it says 10, 9...Then after 
    the fifth turn it says FIRE! And the Laser Eye shoots a beam of light 
    at anyone in its path or on Lone Bridge! And it even hurts the enemies 
    too. That's awesome! Now once you get to the Laser Eye have Anri 
    destroy it and you'll receive the LASER EYE'S CARD! Then make sure 
    everyone is on Level 12! And when everyone is on Level 12 have Anri or 
    Tao attack and kill the Silver Knight and you'll get another card the 
    SILVER KNIGHT'S CARD! After battle Pelle comes back up and says that he 
    watched the whole battle! He was just hanging on to a branch. Then he 
    joins!
    
    PELLE joins the SHINING FORCE!
    
    After that it's now time to go back to Narsha's final epilogue until 
    she joins up with the Shining Force!

    When it begins watch the scene with Darksol and the others. Then it 
    shows a scene where Mawlock, Narsha, and Zuika are at the place with 
    the machine that can make you go to anyplace you want to! Now I can go 
    to Disney Land! But anyway Mawlock suggests that they hurry up before 
    the monsters come. But then Zuika says that it's too late and they're 
    already there! 
    
    So now a battle epilogue begins!

    Victory Conditions: Defeat the Soul Eater
    Clear Bonus: N/A
    Enemy Cards: Soul Eater/Zuika takes the final blow
    Items: 2 Shower Cures
    
    This battle can be tough at times because of those stupid Ghosts. 
    They're annoying! So use the Shower Cures if you really need to use 
    them. And the Will-O-Whips can be tough at times too because they cast 
    Freeze Level 2!
    
    Monsters: 8 Ghosts, 4 Will-O-Whisps, and 2 Wizarys
    Boss: Soul Eater
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Ok first of all, don't attack with Mawlock unless Narsha and Zuika are 
    in trouble. And kill those annoying Ghosts. Then after you have killed 
    all of the monsters have Zuika kill the Soul Eater to receive the SOUL 
    EATER'S CARD! After the battle Mawlock then tells you that they are 
    going in the machine now so then Narsha says that now she finally gets 
    to meet up with the Shining Force!
    
    Recommended Party: Narsha, Zuika, and Mawlock

    ***a. Pao (1)***
    ****************
    Recommended Level: 9-10 Unpromoted
    New Members: Yogurt, Kockichi, and Vankar
    New Cards: Yogurt, Diane, Vankar, and Pelle
    Items: Long Sword, Life Loaf, Quick Chicken, and 1 Empty Chest
    
    When you arrive at Pao talk to the people there, well you really can't 
    talk to all of them yet, but go to the building, where the item shop 
    is, and talk to the dragon-like creature on the right his name is 
    Elliot. He says he is the last of the remaining dragon newt on the 
    planet. And he tells him he wants a to battle you. So after that all 
    the buildings will now be open. So first go to the weapon shop (which 
    is in the first train on the left) and buy what you need there then if 
    you have to, then talk to the knight on the right and his name is 
    Earnest and he is going to have revenge on Balbazak for killing his 
    family, you'll see him again later on in the chapter. Now go to the 
    item shop and do the same, and make sure if there is any deals. Some of 
    the weapons you can't equip yet because you aren't promoted yet, but DO 
    NOT PROMOTE just yet!
    
    Now to get the Long Sword to get it go to the old man's house on the 
    south east part of Pao and the chest is in there. Equip the Long Sword 
    on Max and exit. Now we're going to get the Life Loaf, go to the 
    caravan left wagon and get it from the chest.
    
    Ok now to some more business. Go to the church (which is on the top 
    left hand corner of town) and go around the Priest, and you'll see 
    Yogurt again, he'll wake up and now he'll join the force!
    
    YOGURT joins the SHINING FORCE!
    
    Ok if you want to get a ring that will make you look like Yogurt, put 
    him in battle and make him kill one enemy and he'll drop the Yogurt 
    Ring! But the bad part is that Yogurt is useless he only has 1 ATT, 1 
    DEF, and so on...except for his movement. I only try to get the ring 
    because just to get the Yogurt Ring. But I recommend you don't try 
    because it would be a miracle if you got the Ring.
    
    Now to finally get Diane's Card, go to the Pao Pigs (on the right side 
    of town) and you'll find Diane's Card in the top right hand corner of 
    the fence. Now you got DIANE'S CARD! Well I forgot about this ring go 
    to headquarters and talk to Pelle a couple of times and you'll 
    receive...PELLE'S CARD! Now for ANOTHER card! Go to the far right 
    caravan car and search the engine and you'll receive the 
    useless...YOGURT'S CARD!
    
    Now that we're all set go to the far right caravan and talk to the 
    little girl, her name is Korin and she's the queen of Pao! She'll say 
    that Elliot is a good man and he doesn't really want to take order from 
    Runefaust and she doesn't want to see Max or Elliot fight in battle so 
    she's leaving, and she wants you to let her know when you're ready for 
    them to leave. Talk to her again and say yes and Korin will tell you 
    that they are leaving now and she wants you to step outside, so you 
    automatically will.
    
    After they leave Kockichi will show up and asks if you were the man who 
    saved Bustoke. Max says yes and he says he wants to thank the Shining 
    Horse for saving them, so Max asks Kockichi if he's a little too old 
    for fighting, but Kockichi says that give his wings a chance, and after 
    Kockichi joins Max says it's FORCE not HORSE, but it's too late so...
    
    KOCKICHI joins the SHINING FORCE!
    
    After Kockichi joins, go to the left and you'll see a knight, his name 
    is Vankar talk to him and he wonders if he's Max and Max says yes, then 
    he says that is Korin talked to Max about Earnest and Max says no, and 
    Vankar says that Earnest went to go to Balbazak's fortress to get 
    revenge on Balbazak and that I should help him so now...
    
    VANKAR joins the SHINING FORCE!
    
    You can put Kockichi or Vankar in if you want, but I recommend you 
    don't. Exit to the right and prepare to battle Elliot.

    Ok here's your first battle of chapter 4 with General Elliot. This 
    battle begins with your army and Runefaust's army on different sides of 
    the field. Movement is harsh here so be careful! When you finally get 
    to General Elliot be extra careful, because he has tremendous power and 
    defense!
    
    Monsters: 5 Lizardmen, 3 Dark Priests, 4 Silver Knights, and 1 
    Artillery
    Boss: Elliot
    Difficulty: 7.5/10
    
    Ok this battle is going to be tough. Try to kill the Dark Priests 
    first, as so they have healing power so it can be difficult. Then make 
    sure you level up to Level 12 Unpromoted. When there is no monsters 
    left on the field, you can kill Elliot with all your power with Max to 
    receive...ELLIOT'S CARD!
    
    When you have completed the battle, it will show a scene where it shows 
    Narsha, Zuika, and Mawlock joining up with the Shining Force. Then they 
    start to talk try to listen they have important information. Then Max 
    will have Khris try to heal Elliot, but he does not want to be healed, 
    because he said that his old body is too old now. Then he tells Narsha 
    that she should join up with Max and the Shining Force and complete 
    their journey. Then Elliot dies. Then watch another scene with Narsh 
    and Max talking. Now three new members!
    
    NARSHA, ZUIKA, and MAWLOCK join the SHINING FORCE!
    
    Ok then it shows a scene where Mawlock explains about how to use and 
    how the CARDS work. Read carefully or just go to my cards section for 
    more info. About the cards and what all the cards are and where to get 
    them. Then he asks if you want him to explain it again, say no and 
    enter the second Pao.

    Recommended Level: 12/U
    New Members: Domingo and Guntz
    New Cards: Domingo and Guntz
    Items: 1 Empty Chest, Steel Sword, and Eleven Arrow
    
    When you arrive in the second Pao, go to headquarters and put Narsha, 
    Zuika, and Mawlock in. You can take out whomever you want! I recommend 
    you take out either the following: Khris, Balbaroy, Gort, Luke, Mae, 
    Arthur, Hans, or Diane. I took out Khris, Hans, and Diane. I'll tell 
    you what your party should look like now, but first we're first going 
    to get Domingo and Guntz.
    
    To get Domingo go to the building right on the right of the building in 
    the bottom left hand corner and talk to the merchant on the right and 
    he asks if he can warm up the Domingo Egg. Say yes, and he'll warm it 
    up for you! Out of the blew DOMINGO appears then he'll join!
    
    DOMINGO joins the SHINING FORCE!
    
    After that go to the Pao Pig pen on the bottom right hand corner of 
    town and talk to Guntz inside the Pao Pig pen. Now Guntz will give you 
    info. And he'll join!
    
    GUNTZ joins the SHINING FORCE!
    
    Now to get Domingo and Guntz's cards. Go and talk to one of the Pao 
    Pigs and they'll give you DOMINGO'S CARD! Now go into headquarters and 
    talk to Guntz a couple of times and he'll give you GUNTZ'S CARD!
    
    Then stay in headquarters and you can put in Domingo or Guntz if you 
    want. I'd go with Domingo; you'll regret it later on! So I suggest you 
    take out Gort and put in Domingo. Oh yeah, Domingo and Mawlock CANNOT 
    be promoted! Now Mawlock CANNOT equip anything except for cards. So 
    equip four of the cards you have and make it useful to use in battle.
    
    Now to get the Caravan car with Queen Korin in it and take the chests 
    behind her to receive the Steel Sword and the Eleven Arrow! Then talk 
    to Queen Korin and she'll tell you that Earnest is in Urbanatol and he 
    just beat the Cerberus! Then go to the Weapons & Deals shops to get 
    what you need. Check deals too. There might not be any weapons you can 
    buy now again because you still are not promoted. Remember DO NOT 
    PROMOTE yet, I have a strategy to teach you! Well before you leave go 
    to the first caravan car and talk to the guy right in front of you and 
    he'll say that you have a package from Doc. Crock from Rindo. So you'll 
    receive the Blaze Bomb! It can be used to get inside Urbanatol.
    
    Now up from Pao (2) and you'll end up in the fortress of Urbanatol! And 
    now for the longest battle in the game, well maybe!

    Hound Card!

    Clear Bonus: In 10 turns you'll receive 4000 Gold Coins
    Enemy Cards: Hell Hound/Guntz must take the final blow
    Items: N/A
    NEW MEMBER: EARNEST
    
    Well now welcome to probably the longest battle in the game! It is 
    going to be kind of tough and long if you do it my way! Ok this battle 
    is tough, but you'll get through it. At first it'll show a scene where 
    Luke is using the Blaze Bomb to blow up the Fortress. Then the battle 
    starts! The Hell Hound cannot be hurt with fire remember.
    
    Monsters: 10 Silver Knights, 3 Dark Priests, 2 Artilleries, and 3 
    Pegasus Knights
    Boss: Hell Hound
    Difficulty: 7/10
    
    Well this is going to be confusing, but try to level up to Level 14/U. 
    Then NOW you can go back to Pao and PROMOTE all of your teammates and 
    them level up to Level 9/P! This may take you an hour or two, but it's 
    an easier way to get spells, and to get stronger. When you are Levels 
    13-14 it may be tough to level up, because you only get about 20-35 
    EXP, but after get promoted you'll once again regain 48 EXP for each 
    enemy you kill. (Note: This only works if you have Mawlock's Card and 
    if you completed the game once! If you don't have Mawlock's Card then 
    just use each person to level up at a time!) My tick is where if you 
    want to level up like two people at a time, I'll take Luke and Tao for 
    example. Take out everyone out of your team except Luke, Tao, and 
    Mawlock. Then have Mawlock equip Luke, Mawlock, and Tao's Cards, then 
    once in battle when it's Mawlock's turn go to the MOVE menu and do it 
    on Tao. Then now Tao will have two turns in one shot! Then when it's 
    Mawlock's turn again, do the same thing except with Luke. Now Luke will 
    have two additional turns! Again when it's Mawlock's turn again, use 
    his card and it'll restore the used cards. Then do the same thing over 
    with Luke and Tao and they'll have three additional turns!
    
    Now when you're FINALLY ready have Guntz kill the Hellhound to get the 
    HELLHOUND'S CARD! And to end the battle. You need Guntz for the card.
    
    Recommended Level: 9/P
    Recommended Battle Party: Max, Luke, Tao, Mae, Anri, Arthur, Balbaroy, 
    Zylo, Narsha, Zuika, Mawlock, and Domingo
    
    Then after the battle put back in the person that you took out to bring 
    in Guntz. Now on to Urbanatol. When you get in the hallway you'll see 
    Earnest he's too weak, but he says that he wants revenge on Balbazak! 
    And Max says that they'll fight together. So...
    
    EARNEST joins the SHINING FORCE!
    
    And now continue to enter Urbanatol!

    give up and there's really no use fighting the Shining Force. So now go 
    down where it shows a sign pointing down and enter. When you're in 
    there, there's a room with a Rune Knight and a bookshelf. Search the

    Ok when you begin Balbazak wonders why you took so long. Then he says 
    that he and his Blue Dragon will defeat you! Well at the beginning you 
    must have Earnest on the battlefield for now to receive Balbazak's 
    Card! Well it's funny when you defeat Balbazak's Blue Dragon before you 
    defeat Balbazak, because Balbazak says that you destroyed his pet and 
    you're going to pay! Well his Blue Dragon isn't strong, but Balbazak is 
    so be careful! But you'll meet his Blue DRAGON'S again in Chapter 8 in 
    a stronger version!

    This battle is somewhat easy now. Level everyone up to Level 10/P, and 
    when Balbazak is left have Earnest kill him to get BALBAZAK'S CARD! Now 
    you can take his ship and set off to see to get to the eastern 
    continent! But then Balbazak says that he has something to tell him as 
    long as he lets him go. But then right before your eyes Darksol appears 
    and he says that Balbazak disobeyed him and then he says that Kane, 
    Darksol, and you are...AAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGHHHH! There goes Balbazak, 
    Darksol kills him, then Darksol says do as the fool said and take the 
    ship, but you'll never survive the voyage! Well they do and now the 
    Shining Force sets off again! What will the Shining Force face! Well on 
    to Chapter 5!
