I. Introduction:

I am making a walk through for this game and it's dungeons.  I'm making up the
story as I go along because I can't read Japanese.  Consider the walk though
almost spoiler free in this regard and don't complain about my plot synopsis!
You dang kids and your Japanese games!  Back in my day games had one language!
Binary!  1s and 0s!  You try beating a boss with just 1s and 0s!  HA!!

This game is about making weapons.  That is why, as a sentient sword, it is my
honor to write this walk through.

Even though the title says "Summon night", there are no Pokemon in this game.
You are a kid.  You work in a weapon forge in a small town in the middle of
nowhere.  You get a creature to help you called a guardian beast (here on
referred to as your GB).  You can pick one of 4 creatures to be your GB.  Each
one has it's own unique skill set.  This is probably one of the only things
anyone who can read Japanese, and has played this game, will agree with me on in
terms of the plot.

Controls
In battle, hit up to jump, A to fight, and B to use a skill (default skill is
block).  L changes your weapon to one of 3 you can equip.  R changes your
skills.  After using a skill, Block is automatically selected, so don't worry
about wasting skills in battle.

Start pauses and select puts you on auto pilot.  Auto pilot is pretty good in
this game and will make leveling a lot easier.

The red bar is your HP.  The green bar is your weapon's durability, and the
yellow bar is your weapon's TEC points.  The 6 diamonds represent how many GB
skills you can use during a battle.  Blocks and weapon special attacks are
exempt from this limit.

On the map, L and R switch weapons, A uses the weapon, and B makes you run or
walk depending on what you set your default to.  Start takes you to the menu
and select lets you talk to your GB.


Your start menu has a list of options:

Weapon select
Skill select
inventory
Spells
Weapons
Status
->

If you go to the last option you get to another list of options:

craft rank
weapon secrets
 -sword
 -axe
 -spear
 -knuckle
 -Drill
 -Bow

II. Tips

-You do not win money after battles unless the monster drops some.  The best way
to get cash is to farm and sell ores or other items.  Crates, trees, drill
rocks, and grass reset every time you leave the dungeon (except if you teleport
out).  If you're at a dungeon near the entrance of a town, you can use the town
to restore health and durability for free.  Better still is if the ore you're
farming is from a drill rock or crate in the first room of the dungeon.  VBA
users can just save-state before breaking an object and then just reloading
until you get the right drop from the object.  Everyone else will just have to
go back and forth until they accumulate enough ore or items.  Once you get 99 of
your ore or item, go back to town and sell most of them.  Rinse and repeat.
I'll point out the good spots!

-Drops are based on a random counter that runs during battle as well as during
the game (for breakable objects like crates).  This again works in favor of the
VBA user.  You can use the save-reload trick in battle by saving before placing
the last hit.  Change the timing and actions of that last hit to change the
counter and hopefully get it to give you the ore you want.  Everyone else is
stuck I'm afraid, unless there's an accessory or combo that increases drop
rates.

-The green rocks sold in the item shops in the later towns are return stones.
These are crucial to farming ores and will save your hide many times over while
dungeon crawling and ore farming.

-TEC affects stat transfer on weapons when you break them.  When you break a
weapon at the forge, the raw weapon you get back gets a certain percentage of
stats from the previous weapon.  The percentage is based on your rank and the
TEC you had on the weapon before you broke it.

-If you break a weapon in battle, it is gone forever.  This includes the raw
weapon.  Don't waste weapons until you get to a shop that sells raw weapons.

-Many rare ores are only gotten a few times per game by breaking the weapons
of other characters.  My strategies will be primarily geared towards weapon
breaking opponents, than towards straight out killing them.  Besides, if you
can weapon break them, you can easily kill them.  Don't worry if you missed
any, because you have the option of doing a new game+ after beating the game
(see section at end of walkthrough).

-The bait and block method is used to get characters to attack you while
blocking.  This reduces the DUR on their weapons so that you can break them.
All you do is take your finger off block for a split second and put it back on.

-I use north, south, east, and west interchangeably with up, down, left, and
right.  I do this depending on my mood.

-You can add effects and special attacks to weapons by imbuing them with combo
items.  You need to imbue certain combinations of these items to get certain
results.  I don't know what does what, but I know a few good ones:

Push-button - This item will give any weapon a "DUR breaker" special attack.
DUR breaker does not inflict damage on anything except an opponent's weapon (if
they have one).

Tool - Some translations refer to this as the "legendary javelin".  I think it
looks like a tool, so I'll describe it as such.  It gives bow weapons the
"pierce" effect.  Arrows will pass through and damage all targets in their
path, instead of just the first target they hit.  You won't think much of a bow
until you can take out an entire group in just a few shots.

-No matter how much you forge and upgrade a weapon, your rank for that weapon
type can only go up as high as the highest ore you forged and are currently
working on.  If my highest ranked weapon is forged with a rank 5 ore, no matter
how many things I do to this weapon, my rank will only go upto 5.  If you want
rank 9, forge weapons with rank 9 ore and work on those.

-If you can't get all the ores and items in the FAQ in your first play through,
don't worry about it.  The important thing is to make a good DUR breaking weapon
to do it next time in new game+

-If you made a weapon you plan to keep, you should imbue it with ore #40.  This
ore gives you the following stat bonuses per ore used:

+45 ATK
+30 DEF
+10 AGI
+30 DUR

Remember that you only have 3 imbuement slots.  Make sure your weapon has both
a special attack and an effect that you want.

-To know if you cleared all the obstacles in a dungeon, The hero will do a
victory pose and shout "Yatta!" right before you exit the dungeon (works from
any exit)

-Money making tip from Jackson of GameFAQs:  After beating the game, harvest
ores from Tram, Jade, and Tier.  Make weapons from these ores.  Rank 9 ores
sell for 5,000b alone, but forged, ore #39 and #40 weapons sell for 55,000b
and 65,000b each!



Now some of my weapon recipes that you might want to aim for:

Muramasa:
First make a sword with ore #24.  Break it when you're at least rank 5 and
you got the sword to 255 TEC, then reforge the sword with ore #35.  Your new
weapon will convert damage to HP and it looks like a samurai sword.  It also
has a wind-based special attack.  Focus on boosting ATK and DUR since this
weapon is primarily offensive.


DUR breaker bow:
Start with an ore #28 bow.  If you want, Break it at rank 5 and 255 TEC and
reforge it with a higher ore.  Then imbue it with a tool combo item for
"pierce" effect.  Get your bow rank as high as possible and use the middle
forge option to upgrade your bow's durability.  Around 500 DUR is pretty
sufficient.  The "pierce" effect makes leveling a lot easier for your bow.

Alternately, make a bow with an ore of your choice and imbue it with a push
button and a tool combo item.

When you start a game, the first thing you name is your main character, and the
second thing you name is your nick-name (I think).

-------------------
|Boss - V. E.     |
|60hp             |
|drops:           |
-------------------

After the opening, you start off fighting V.E. with just your hammer.  Beat her
because it's easy and you need to progress.  Then some other random scene occurs
where some old guy drops dead in front of you 2 and V.E. gets some wierd
triangular pendant from his corpse!

When you regain control, go left to the next screen where you see a mine garded
by a villager.  Go south from here and then in the next screen go right past the
shop to the next screen.  The shop keeper will stop you and hand you your first
ore (an ore #1) and your first raw weapon (some refer to these as shape-stones).

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Continue right.  Here you'll run into Seige and his fellow Brush heads.
I'll refer to all of them as brush heads because I cannot pick Seige out
durring battles.  Anyway, after a dialogue, a kid with white hair chases them
off.  Go right and you'll see V. E. waiting for you at your house.  Go inside
and go up to the doorway to reach your forge.

You get to make a sword.  Then your GB shows up and runs away.  Follow
him/her/it into the dungeon north of your house.

Let's talk a little about the first town.  The town has 2 parts.  Your house is
in the eastern part of town.  the western part has the shop.  you can't buy much
here and for now it's cheaper to return to bed back at the forge.  Before I
explain the dungeons and your leveling/grinding that you'll be doing in this
game, let's continue with the walk through!  In the eastern part of town,
there's a path to the left of your house which goes north to the outside world.
Once you made your first sword, you'll want to go up there and start fighting.
The good news is you'll get to fight.  The bad news is you'll only get to fight
one slime for now before the dialogues start again (they are fairly long).

After killing the slime, you meet up with a kid dressed as a 19th century
paperboy with glasses.  A scene follows where your hero gets a closer look and
discovers the kid is a girl (there was a heart icon in the dialogue.  We'll just
assume our hero "had a peek" if you will!).  Anyway, you and the kid/girl go
your separate ways and you head back to town.  She drops what looks like a
cocoon.  You get a choice here, but i'm not sure if it is relevant to the
game-play.  Go south into town and go left.

There, you meet up with the brush heads.  They have green hair which makes me
believe they just wear stiff grass on their heads (maybe it's some form of
defense or camouflage?).  They knock off the kid's hat and reveal the kid is a
blond girl named Murno.  After some dialogue, you get another choice here.
Either option leads to a boss fight.

-------------------
|Boss - Brush-head|
|100hp            |
|sword:    20dur  |
|drops: ore 1     |
-------------------

Not much to this fight.  He carries the same sword you have, so he has the same
ore you start with.  Block his attacks and counter when possible.  If he still
gives you grief, try and hit him in the air by getting him to jump and slashing
him before landing.  if you jump, bosses will commonly jump with you.

After that, brush head and his twin brother beat you up.  then for some reason
you summon your GB (wait, when did it become yours if it was still running wild
in the canyon?), and your GB fights brush head for you.

-------------------
|Boss - Brush-head|
|100hp            |
|Axe:      40dur  |
|drops:           |
-------------------

He doesn't drop anything, so breaking his axe is not worth your trouble.
Your GB can make short work of this guy.  Just fight him.

After this fight and another scene, you find yourself in your house.  Exit the
house and talk to V. E.  Choose the first option to fight your GB (Probably
some taming ritual or something).  HP and stategy vary depending on who you
picked.  Just make sure you healed up at the forge before the fight (sleep in
the bed).

After that, another dialogue and the intro cut scene where it introduces all the
characters.  The 4 of you watch the cut scene and get confused but then shrug it
off.  V. E. introduces everyone to everyone else and we probably learn here that
the girl you rescued is Murno.  Then we get a night scene.  Night scenes allow
you to talk to certain characters.  The choices you make don't really affect
much, except for the last one.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Day 01+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Back at your forge, V. E. gives you another ore to forge.  You have to break
your sword (second to last option at the forge) and remake it with your GB.
Then save your game and go upstairs.  Another long dialouge where Murno falls
out of bed and talks to you and your GB.  Then V. E. comes into the room and
probably scolds you for being a peeping tom or something (she likes to hit you
and will do so throughout many dialogues).  When you regain control, go right
and you will get a scene with the bratty kid.  He'll drop his hammer.

After the scene, go to the shop and go talk to the green man in the upper room.
After that scene, go west of town to the mine carts.  Here you should see a
scene with a bratty kid and an albino kid named Lemmy (where you return the
hammer).  After that scene you should be able to go to the dungeon (left of
side your house and go north).

Side-quest:
However, let's get some stuff in town!  Go back to the shop and talk to the guy
with a yellow hat.  He'll give you a blue stone (wind elemental combo item) for
an ore #1.  You can pick these up later in the first dungeon if you want.  After
that, go up past the counter into the next room.  Talk to the man for a
dialogue.  Now leave.

Side-quest:
Go to the right and down the stairs.  You should see a man down there.  Talk to
him and pick the first option to get a raw spear.  he wants a spear forged with
ore #1.  Give him the spear when you're done and he'll give you an ore #2.

Cat hunt:
Talk to the woman in the yard to the right of your rival's house.  A cat will
show up in the dugneon (I'll point out where later on)


The first dungeon is up the path to the left of your house
----------------------------------------
|First dungeon - canyon                |
|Enemies:   1,2,3,4                    |
|Treasure:  raw axe, 300b              |
|crates: leather, brown paper, 1b      |
|grass: leaves, sticks                 |
|Drill rocks: ore #1, worms,           |
|             repair stone slivers     |
|Targets: ore #4                       |
|ores: #1 (drop from monsters 2 and 3  |
|           and from drill rocks)      |
|      #2 (drop from monster 4)        |
----------------------------------------

Here is the first point in the game where you can ore-farm.  Enemy 1 (green
slime) drops repair stone slivers.  You can use them to forge gray sharpening
stones later on.  Enemies 2 (green armadillo) and 3 (Green spinning saw-bot)
drop ore #1 commonly.  Monster #4 (purple flying dog) drops ore #2 rarely.

Go up and left of the entrance for a chest with 300b and continue left to the
2 bridges.

You'll see another Dialogue when you reach 2 bridges to the left of the
entrance.  Cross one and one of them will collapse.  if you picked the good one,
you'll be fine.  if you picked the bad one, you'll fall into the mine shaft.

once you get to the other side, you fight a boss.

-------------------
|Boss - Mecha mage|
|300hp            |
|drops: raw drill,|
|       Fish hook |
-------------------

This guy is pretty easy.  No weapons to break!  Just use your sword and hit him
as much as possible.

Either way, you have to go down there for yet another dialogue with bratty kid.

After the dialogue, you can break stuff or leave, it's up to you.  The exit is
right in the middle of the room.  When you get outside, you'll be on the other
side of the bridges.  Go back to town and repair/rest before proceeding further.
Also set your GB spells (Hit start and go to the second option from the top) so
you can summon your GB for the next fight.

When ready, make your way north and then back to the right where you'll come
across 2 more bridges.  This time bratty kid falls through the bridge.  After
the dialogue and creepy music plays, you'll fight another boss.

------------------------------
|Boss - Mecha knight         |
|       300 hp               |
|drops: raw sword,           |
|       gray sharpening stone|
------------------------------

You can't seem to hit him with ore #1 weapons.  However, your GB can!  If you
didn't set the summon GB spell (gold person icon in the GB menu), you can die
and your GB should come save you.  Otherwise, use the gold person spell when you
get tired of doing 1 DMG to it.  Another boss with no weapons to break.

After the battle, bratty kid comes back up and gives you another dialogue.  Now
go down the hole in the bridge cause there's treasure down there!

Down the whole you'll be back in the mine shaft.  There's rocks to drill for ore
(I hope you made a drill from the last boss's raw weapon), a treasure chest with
a raw axe in it.

When you get back up to the surface, you might have noticed that target above
the second set of bridges.  When you have a bow weapon, come back here and
shoot it.  A blue-haired girl will come up to you and present you with an ore
(in this case, an ore #4).

Go back if you want to farm more ores or make new weapons.  Using the 255 TEC
trick, you should reforge your weapons twice this way with each new ore you can
get.  Don't do this with rare ores until the end of the game or until you're
sure you want to use them.

Now lets go back to where we were!  Cross the second set of bridges and you'll
come across a blue triangle.  This will restore your health once per dungeon
visit.  Use it wisely!  Go north from there and face yet another boss.

------------------------------
|Boss - Mecha Guard          |
|450hp                       |
|drops: raw spear, band-aid  |
------------------------------

When he's blue, attack him with your sword.  When he's red, switch to your GB.
The end!

Moving on, beat this guy and you'll get another dialogue with bratty kid. take
the fruit off the tree and you'll get yet another dialogue with bratty kid and
he'll take your fruit (and sometimes gives you a cat mask)!  Back to town!

Side quest:
If you fought enough, you might have acquired some repair stone slivers.  These
are thin gray rocks dropped by slimes (monster #1) and found in drill rocks.  If
you have some, you can trade one with the old lady to the right of the shop, for
a brown paper.  You can also trade one with the guy at the back of the shop (the
one we talked to last time for a dialogue), for a green stone combo item which
imbues wind elemental properties on a weapon.

Cat hunt:
If you talked to the woman in the yard to the right of your rival's house, you
can find a cat in the same room as the raw axe.  If not, go talk to her now and
then go back up there.  It's the second set of bridges you need to go down in
order to find the cat.  It will be by the waterfall.  Talk to it and it will
come with you.  Go back to the woman to get a worm as a reward.

Clear dungeon:
If you cleared every breakable obstacle in the canyon, talk to the old man to
the left of the shop for an ore #2.  From this point on, each town you visit
will have one of these old men.  I won't point him out every time because he
is always in the same place in each town.  After completing a dungeon, you
can go to the old man in any town and you'll always get the same rewards.

OK, after doing some more farming and upgrading to ore 2 weapons if you want, go
home and rest.  Then go back to the mine carts (west or left of town) for
another scene.  This time you fight Lemmy.

------------------------------
|Boss - Lemmy                |
|178hp                       |
|sword:   70dur              |
|drops: ore #2               |
------------------------------

If you forged and equipped a few weapons and have good HP or even equipped some
items to your GB skill slots, try to get him to break his sword for an ore #2.
It will take a long time of course, but the ore is a rare drop and you've
probably only picked up only 1 or 2 of them if you didn't spend 10 hours farming
them.  Once the weapon breaks you automatically win!  Just switch weapons when
your DUR gets low using the L button (you did equip 3 weapons first I hope!).

The fight is over and now bratty kid gives you medicine to give to Murno, so
let's go back home!  Go upstairs and talk to V. E.  to get another dialogue and
a night scene.  Anyway, I have no idea what they do except flesh out the plot
(which is in Japanese which I can'tread!).  Pick an option and a character
shows up to talk to you.  there's onethat's important, but that's at the end of
the game and we'll save that one forlater.  Anyway after the night scene
dialogue, you wake up with your GB in the forge room.  No, you don't literally
wake up with it next to you!  You guys are sick!  Wha..oh yeah, you end up in
the forge room and you can make repairs and rest (do so!).  Now go down into the
main room for another dialogue.  Murno is better and now wearing her signature
black and white dress.  The hero tells her she looks nice and V. E. gets
jealous.  More talking ensues and they both leave.  Go out of the house for yet
another dialogue with bratty kid.  You get a choice at the end.  Pick the top
option and he leaves and goes north.  Anyway, our next destination is the
western mine shaft.

Note:  At this point, if you're playing a new game+, you can now go back to the
fishing spot and pick up your transfer weapons.

Speaking of fishing, you can play a fishing mini-game at the fishing hole.  The
fishing hole is a screen to the right of the mine north of town.

--------------------------------------

Side Quest:
To the right of your forge house is a small boy.  He'll trade you a dumpling for
a piece of brown paper.

Side Quest:
Talk to the girl on the bridge to the right of the shop and she'll sell you a
battery for 200b.

Side Quest:
Talk to a girl in back of the shop.  She will trade you a lighter for an ore #3.

Cat hunt:
Go to the train station to find a girl there.  Talk to her and a cat will appear
in the mine.  However, you cannot get the cat until later on, because it is
behind a locked door.  Bring her cat back and she gives you a small bomb.

----------------------------------------
|Second dungeon - western mineshaft    |
|Enemies:   5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12         |
|Treasure:   raw knuckle, 400b         |
|crates: leather, brown paper,         |
|        dumpling,  3b                 |
|grass: leaves, sticks                 |
|Drill rocks: ore #3, worms,           |
|             repair stone slivers     |
|Targets: ore #4                       |
|ores: #3 (drop from monster 9 and     |
|          from drill rocks)           |
----------------------------------------

First thing to note is that the door north of you won't open.  It thinks it's a
wall.   The ore dropping enemy here is the walking chain-chomps (a Super Mario 3
reference for you youngsters!).  It's enemy 9 in the book.  Let's go left for
yet another short dialogue with your GB.  Go south in the new area and go down
the ladder/steps.  To your right you should see 3 drill rocks you can farm for
ore #3.  Go south from here.  You'll notice a bow target to the right of the
next ladder you see.  When you get a bow, come back here to practice some
archery.  Hitting the target gets you some dialogue with some blue-haired girl.
There's also more drill rocks here.  anyway, go down the ladder and go right
until you see another ladder, then climb up.  You'll then come to another boss.

------------------------------
|Boss - Mecha dog            |
|500hp                       |
|drops: yellow potion,       |
|       gray sharpening stone|
------------------------------

Easy yet again! It can shoot and it can pounce.  Attack with any weapon you
want.  If things get bad switch to GB.

When that's over, go get the chest for a raw knuckle!  Now you can make a
knuckle weapon.  Now leave the mine.

Before we go on, make note of this place.  You can very easily farm ore #3 here.
Just go back in and drill the drill rocks, then leave.  Simple!

When you get back out, you meet up with a blue guy dressed in a feather jacket
(sorta like Squall from Final Fantasy 8).  There's another dialogue and you're
sent back to town.  Go back home and the blue guy will introduce himself to V.
E. as Jade.  V. E. will scold you again and talk some more.  Then go outside an
the brush heads are beating up Murno again, this time over her pendant.  They
leave and the dialogue goes on.  Go to the house next door for a short dialogue
where our hero sees Lemmy in the back of the shop.  Go out and you'll run into
bratty kid for another short dialogue.

Go south of town from here to yet another dungeon, but wait!  What have we here
A purple circle we can't access due to a guard.  So lets go left!  We have come
back to the exit of the western mine!!!  It's even easier to farm now!

OK, let's go on!  The guard won't let us pass south or east, so we have to go
back.  Hmm...  Remember that door that thought it was a wall?  Let's see if it
changed it's mind!  Go back to the western part of town and back north to the
mine entrance.  Go inside and go up north in the first room.  Now we can enter
that door!

Inside the new room, you'll notice some boxes and perhaps another cat (if you
talked to the girl at the train station) in the upper left corner.  Talk to the
cat.  Then go right for another short dialogue with Jade.  Go further right and
open the chest for 400b.  Then go right into the next room and up/north for
another scene.

It's the brush heads again!  This time they brought a 3rd guy.  After the creepy
music, they awaken the angry god of dump trucks!  The third guy acts as a
sacrifice, but our hero won't have that, and challenges the angry sentient
vehicle to a duel!

------------------------------------
|Boss - angry god of dump trucks   |
|700 hp                            |
|drops: bomb item                  |
------------------------------------

Oh come on!  Another wasted junk heap!  He has 2 attacks: claw jab and a
drill.  The claw jab can be blocked if you need to.  The drill takes a long
time to get ready, so you can probably take 50 of his HP off while you wait,
and then block.

Another dialogue and another choice.  Pick the first option and everyone leaves
except Jade and brush head #3.  Go back to town and heal up, then talk to brush
head for another battle:

-------------------
|Boss - Brush-head|
|280 hp  / 80 dur |
|drops: ore #3    |
-------------------

He has a spear and is a real pain to weapon break.  His spear does a special
attack that shoots out a water wave.  This costs him a few DUR each time he uses
it, and it's slow and easy to block.  He also has a bomb attack which he uses
rarely.  This can do a lot of damage to you.  If you see the bomb, get some
distance and get ready to jump over it.  Don't bother blocking it.  His normal
attacks are dangerous if not properly blocked.  He can twirl his spear at will
for 3-4 hits.  He will not attack if you sit there and block and will not always
attack you if you just stand there.  The AI is more concerned with countering,
so the best tactic is to strike once and block immediately.  Also note that his
spear is of ore #4, yet he drops an ore #3.

After beating him, Leave the mine and go back to the forge house in town for
another dialogue.  I picked the top option to each question and they left me
alone.

Clear dungeon:
If you cleared every breakable obstacle in the mine, talk to the old man to the
left of the shop for an ore #7.

Cat hunt:
Go to the train station to find a girl there.  Talk to her and a cat will appear
in the mine behind the door to the north of the entrance screen.  Bring her cat
back and she gives you a small bomb.

Side Quest:
In the shop you'll find an old man who gives you a raw drill he wants an ore #3
drill.  He gives you a water tank for it.

Go and strengthen your weapons.  Forge and reforge stuff and talk to Jade (the
blue guy with the feather jacket in case you forget) when you're ready.  He's
gonna fight you when you pick the first option.

-------------------
|Boss - Jade      |
|350 hp           |
|Knuckle:  80 Dur |
|Drill:   120 Dur |
|drops:  ore #4(2)|
-------------------

Again, beating him is easy, but breaking his weapons is more useful.  Make a
good drill out of an ore 3.  Reforge it a few times till you get a gold weapon.
Don't block when he has the drill out.  He can take 5-7 DUR from one of your
weapons for every DUR he uses with the drill.  Get him to block you with
constant drill slashes.  If he switches to fist, switch to something else and
just block him until he switches back, then get away and drill-hit him to get
him to block.  If/when his HP goes down too low, swap in your GB and just block.
He should waste a good 20-30 DUR fighting the GB.  If he gets really low on HP,
give him distance and he should eventually heal himself.

After the fight is a night scene.  Wake up the next morning to fight V. E.

--------------------------------------

V. E. is waiting for you outside the house.  Talk to her and choose the second
option to fight her.

-------------------
|Boss - V. E.     |
|480 hp           |
|axe:      86 Dur |
|Spear:    80 Dur |
|drops:  ore #6(2)|
-------------------

You can block her axe for a while with a strong weapon like another axe.  you
can also try to drill-hit her and get her to block.  Her spear is a pain.  The
best way to deal with her spear is to block and unblock to bait her into an
attack, but you need to be quick against the spear twirl attack.  Fighting her
for just a quick kill is relatively easy.

After this fight, rest/repair and then go to the shop.  You'll stop by the big
blue sword for a moment.  Check inside the shop and you'll find some new items
for sale such as a green stone.  These stones aren't ores.  I'm gonna call
them return stones.  In almost any dungeon or battle ground, you can use one to
go back to the last town you visited.  To go back to that dungeon talk to the
green sword and choose the first option.

Side Quest:
Go left from your house up the stairs and talk to the woman there.  If you have
any extra dumplings, you can trade her one for a nectar.

Side Quest:
Buy a kicker potion (the red one) in the shop.  Outside the shop to the right of
the southern gate is an old woman.  She'll trade you the potion for an ore #6.

At the fishing hole, there is a guy in yellow who will buy leaves at 20b a
piece.  Take advantage of this if you need cash.

Don't forget to check the fishing hole for new items!

When ready, talk to V. E. and Murno to leave.  They will go with you and you
will go south of town.

----------------------------------------
|Woods south of home town              |
|Enemies:  10,11,12,13,14,15           |
|Treasure: raw bow, +10 ATK boot,      |
|          battery                     |
|crates: leather, brown paper,         |

|ores: #5 (drop from monster 13 and    |
|          from drill rocks)           |
----------------------------------------


Go right to the purple circle on the ground and hit it with your hammer to
activate it.  You're back at the exit to the mine btw.  Anyway, now you can go
south and explore a bit.  You'll come across fruit trees which you can harvest
with your spear, and tree stumps which you can cut with your axe.  Head south
down the hill.  Go left then down the ladder.  Go right and down the next
ladder.  Finally go left into the cave.

Inside you'll meet a girl with a bow.  she introduces herself as Tier.  Pick the
first option and she'll take 200b and play some kind of game with you to get
you through the mine.  Go past all the holes on this floor and go to the bottom
right of the room.  Go Up from there to the top right corner to get a raw bow
from the chest.  From the chest, go south down the first hole you see and you'll
see Tier again.  Follow her to the right into the doorway.

She'll be below you to the right, but that's a ways away.  Go south down the
first hole to reach a boot accessory that will give you +10 ATK when equipped.
Then go back north and up the ladder to get back up.  Go past the first hole and
keep going south for a chest with a battery.  Now go past the first hole and
take the one to the right of it.  You'll meet Tier again and she'll be south of
you.  You'll be under mine support bars.  Follow her down and to the left into
another doorway.  In the next room you'll come out next to a door with
gold-colored rocks.  Go into that doorway to exit the cave.

Outside you'll get another dialogue and then get confronted by a Lion thing.
Approach it and you'll get to kill it!

-------------------------
|Boss - 4-eyed lionvark |
|550 hp                 |
|drops: shiny red star  |
-------------------------

Careful, he breathes fire!  When he goes into the air and fills his chest up
with air, run and get some distance from it!  He'll breathe fire next and it
will hurt!  his other attack is a small fire breath which does a little damage
and can be blocked.

After the fight, go right to reach a target for another ore #6. then go back and
talk to Tier again.

Next you get another dialogue.  Pick either option and the same thing happens.
you get some time to rest and repair before you get to fight Tier.

-------------------
|Boss - Tier      |
|450 hp           |
|bow:      80 dur |
|sword:    80 dur |
|drops: ore #7(2) |
-------------------

She has ore #7 so weapon break her.  It's very easy to do so.  Just put up a
strong weapon and block for the entire fight she will constantly attack with bow
and sword until both or broken or you are dead.  Nothing special other than
that.

After the fight, you get another dialogue.  Use a stone to go back and heal (you
did buy return stones right?), or continue on.  Go south to exit and you'll
reach Tier's town.

Go into the shop and you'll meet Tier's mom and run into Jade again.  Apparently
he's prepared a forge room for you here.  Pick the first option during the
dialogue and Tier runs off.

Let's explore the town!  To the left of the forge and shop house is a gnome
juggling logs.  He won't say much now.  Keep going left and you'll reach the
mine train tracks.

Clear dungeon:
If you cleared every breakable obstacle in the forest, talk to the old man at
the train to the left of town for an ore #6.  You can also go back to the first
town and talk to the old guy to the left of the shop to get the prize.

Side quest:
At the mine tracks is a woman looking for an ore #5 bow.  She'll give you a raw
bow to make one for her.  Giver it to her for yet another ore #6.

Side quest:
On the way to the mine tracks you'll pas by a girl on a bridge.  she'll sell you
a toy key combo item for 350b.

Cat hunt:
In the forge house/shop, you'll see a man in the bottom right corner.  talk to
him and you can find a cat behind the next mini boss.  Return it for a raw bow.

Behind the purple house on the bottom right, is a hidden path.  It leads to a
man who will buy nectars for 50b a piece.

To the east (right) of town is a new area we will explore next!

----------------------------------------
|Woods east of Tier's town             |
|Enemies:  16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23     |
|Treasure: Pink stone combo item,      |
|          lighter, green note pad     |
|crates: leather, brown paper,         |
|        dumpling                      |
|Stumps: Sticks, leather, worms        |
|Fruit trees: rotten fruit, cherries,  |
|             nectar                   |
|grass: leaves, sticks                 |
|Drill rocks: ore #5, worms,           |
|             repair stone slivers     |
|Targets: ore #7                       |
|ores: #5 (drop from monster 22 and    |
|          from drill rocks)           |
----------------------------------------

Not much is new here.  The path forks with the southern path leading to a dead
end and the northern path leading to a target, treasure, and cave.  The treasure
is a pink gem which will give your weapon a fire property if imbued in it.  The
chest is also hidden in the trees to the right of the lake.


Go into the cave.  Go south and to the right and you'll soon come across a
doorway.  Go inside and heal at the blue triangle.  go in further to face a
mini-boss guarding 2 chests (and maybe a cat if you talked to the guy at the
forge house).

---------------------------
|Boss - green giant robot |
|880 hp                   |
|drops:                   |
---------------------------

His attacks are projectiles, a homing shot and a fish slam into the ground for
close range.  The key to this battle is staying close range and just attacking.
when he gets ready to hit the ground, be ready to jump to avoid the shock
wave.   After that battle get the 2 chests and get out of there.  You get a
lighter and a green notepad.  Go back to town and rest and reforge.  You're
gonna need it!

Now go back to the cave and go back to the doorway, but go past the doorway
instead of going inside.  You'll walk around the pillar where the door is, and
go back left.  then go up and back to the right to a doorway leading outside.
Out there you'll find Tier being attacked by 2 guards.  Either choice will
initiate  a fight.


---------------------
|Boss - 2x Guards   |
|Guard A 550hp      |
|spear:  75 dur     |
|Guard B 500hp      |
|bow:    75 dur     |
|drops: ore #5(2)   |
---------------------

These guys are not worth the trouble to weapon break.  They only carry ore #5
which you should have plenty of by now.  Since bows are ranged, Guard B will
constantly attack.  Just block until he's broken or isolate him and take him out
first.  Guard A will almost never block, preferring to counter when possible.
Your HP should be over 500 by now so you shouldn't have too much trouble if you
just go in and fight.

After the fight you get another dialogue.  Pick either option and head back to
town OR you can also return to where the green robot was to fight him again.

---------------------------
|Boss - green giant robot |
|880 hp                   |
|drops:  Small bomb       |
---------------------------


Same strategy as before (same monster).  This time you get something for your
troubles!

OK, now back to town.  First you'll run into Lemmy and bratty kid.  Another
dialogue and they run into a house below you which you can't go inside.

Clear dungeon:
Go to the mine tracks in Tier's town and talk to the old man there.  If you
cleared all the obstacles in the eastern woods, he'll give you an ore #7.

Cat hunt:
If you talked to the man in the shop here, you may have found cat behind the
green robot.  Return it for a raw bow.

Go into the forge/store house and you'll get another dialogue with some guy with
a mushroom hair cut and the rest of your friends.  You approach Murno and do or
say something which really creeps her out and she leaves.  After the dialogue is
another night scene.

--------------------------------------

Now you can fight the green robot in that cave as much as you want, but you must
walk back to town to reset him.  Note that return stones do not reset dungeon
items and/or events.  You have to walk back to town or walk back from town after
using a stone.

Time to leave town.  This time go south of the store/forge house and enter the
southern forest.

----------------------------------------
|Woods south of Tier's town            |
|Enemies:  24,25,27,28                 |
|Treasure:                             |
|crates: leather, brown paper,         |
|        dumpling                      |
|Stumps: Sticks, leather, worms        |
|Fruit trees: rotten fruit, cherries,  |
|             nectar                   |
|grass: leaves, sticks, medical grass  |
|Targets: ore #10                      |
|ores: #4 (drop from monster #27)      |
----------------------------------------

First hit the purple circle.  These circles are teleporters which take you to
the exit of each town.  Here you can fight monster #27 (green tanks) which drop
ore #4.  They're a rare drop, so you might have to hunt for a while to get a
few.

To the left over the lake is a target.  Hit it from the side to get an ore #10.

When you're ready, go south to reach the canyon.

----------------------------------------
|Canyon south of Tier's town           |
|Enemies:  26,29,30,31                 |
|Treasure:  ticket, button combo item, |
|           raw knuckle                |
|crates: grey leather, brown paper,    |
|        ticket, crayfish              |
|Stumps: Sticks, leather, worms        |
|Fruit trees: rotten fruit, cherries,  |
|             nectar                   |
|grass: leaves, sticks, medical grass  |
|Drill rocks: ore #8, worms,           |
|             repair stone slivers,    |
|             pink repair stone slivers|
|ores: #8 (drop from monster 30 and    |
|          from drill rocks)           |
----------------------------------------

Go south down the ladder and east to the next screen.  If you have a knuckle
weapon, you can move the boulders to get the treasure here.  Move the bottom
boulder all the way right.  Then go up and move that bolder up into a the
notch.  Then go right and move that bolder to the right.  Finally go down and
move that boulder down into the notch.  Get the chest for a ticket and then go
east from the maze to fight another mini-boss.


-----------------------------
|Boss - evil armor/Dullahan |
|1100 hp                    |
|drops: green powder,       |
|       yellow powder       |
-----------------------------

This guy is VERY slow.  Just use your sword and keep double slashing (rapidly
mash B).  I forged a sword with ore #8 at this point.

Behind the boss are 2 chests containing a raw knuckle and a button combo item.
Button combo items give any weapon you want the DUR breaker special attack.  If
you have some money to spare later on, forge a good bow with high DUR and use it
on this weapon by imbuing it.  Imbuing is done with the second option at the
forge.  You need a certain rank in that weapon type to unlock it.

This guy regenerates so you can fight him as much as you'd like.  Just go back
to town and walk back.

Go back west to the first screen of the canyon.  Go south down the ladder and
south to the next screen.  Go south and then east (right) for a scene with
V. E., Jade, and Tier.  Eventually Tier joins you.  Continue east and then south
down the ladder.  The next screen is a boss group fight.

-------------------------------
|Boss - 2x ghost, head ghost  |
|Ghost:        800 hp         |
|head ghost:   950hp          |
|drops: gray sharpening stone,|
|       500b                  |
-------------------------------

These annoying little guys can turn almost invisible and have an annoying saw
blade attack.  The saw blade attack can be blocked and a well placed hit will
disrupt it.  They can be hit when invisible and can be found by their shadow and
small hats.  The head ghost can fly higher than the screen at times.

After the battle is a short dialogue and then you're back in control.  Welcome

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Note that there is a weapon shop here that sells raw weapons at 1500b a piece.
Some ores are more profitable when forged into weapons.  You can sell weapons at
weapon shops by chosing the second option and the second option from there.  An
ore # 8 sells for 200b, but an ore #8 sword sells for 2000b.  Subtract the cost
of the raw sword, and that's 500b profit.

Go down to the star intersection and you'll run into bratty kid again. You can
only go west and south from here for the time being.  West of here is the train
tracks again.  These trains are non-functional for the entire game btw.

If you picked up any grey leathers, you can sell them to the man here for 100b
a piece.

Go south instead and then go west to the castle for another dialogue

Inside you'll meet some new characters.  Some long-haired guy with glasses I'll
refer to as the professor and Lemmy's mother are here to greet your party.
Later you'll be transported to your new quarters where you'll meet a big
dark-skinned guy.  Try to leave and his daughter comes down the stairs and talks
to your GB.  After the scene, you'll be free to explore the town.

Clear dungeon:
Talk to the green old man at the bottom right of town, next to a blue house.
He'll give you a four-leaf clover combo item if you cleared all the breakable
objects in the forest north of town.  You can complete this earlier if you stop
and go back before the cutscenes above.

Side Quest:
Before you leave, talk to jade to get an envelope.  he wants a weapon with over
35 ATK.  Easy enough to do!  Go to the weapon shop and buy a raw axe for 1500b
and forge it with ore #8 or better.  Give that to him for a red medal combo
item.

Side quest:
There's a blue house above the bell tower in the lower right corner of town.  In
here, there is a man who will trade a button combo item for a red pendant charm.
you can buy the pendant charm in the shop to the right of the lottery place.
The woman wants you to make her an ore #8 knuckle.  She'll give you a switch
combo item.

Cat hunt:
In the lower right corner of town by the stairs is a red house with an old woman
inside.  Talk to her.  Then go back to where you fought Dullahan.  Fight him
again, and get the cat.  Bring it back to her for a syringe combo item.

Side quest:
Outside the lottery is a girl who will sell you a button combo item for 800b.

Side quest:
Go to the southern gate.  In that park area on the left side is a young girl
who'll give you a gray leather for a nectar.

Let's start with where we are now because this place is a bit bigger than we're
used to.  Your house is in the north-east corner of town.  the house next door
is where Lemmy is set up, but you will not see him and you can't really do
anything there yet.

South of this section is the shopping area.  You'll find a weapons shop, a
lottery house, and your standard item shop.  The weapon shop has a sword sign
next to it.  The lottery house has a wheel sign next to it, and the item shop is
next to that building.

|4th Klotzen potion          (4x)|

----------------------------------


The lottery is a good place to get free items.  I won some button combo items,
powders, fruit, sticks, and even an ore #10 from it.  One day someone will have
a complete list of items.  Remember those yellow tickets you found in the crates
in the last dungeon?  Those tickets can be exchanged for random items here.

West of the shopping area is the castle.  A few screens south of the castle is
another canyon dungeon which I haven't named yet.  South of that is the southern
town entrance.

East of the shopping area is the town mine.  We'll be heading here next.

----------------------------------------
|eastern city mine                     |
|Enemies:  32,33,34,35,36,37,38        |
|Treasure:  raw axe, bomb,             |
|           +6 ATK ring accessory,     |
|           Toy key combo item,        |
|           Syringe                    |
|crates: gray leather, brown paper,    |
|        ticket, crayfish              |
|Stumps: Sticks, leather, worms        |
|Fruit trees: rotten fruit, cherries,  |
|             nectar                   |
|grass: leaves, sticks, medical grass  |
|Drill rocks: ore #8, worms,           |
|             repair stone slivers,    |
|             pink repair stone slivers|
|Targets: ore #10                      |
|ores: #8 (drop from monster 38 and    |
|          from drill rocks)           |
----------------------------------------

First thing you'll notice is that there are 2 doors:  one open one that leads
outside and a closed one that will remain closed for a while.  There's only one
choice obviously!

Outside, go all the way right first and get the chest for a raw axe.  Next, go
down the ladder then go right again and down the other ladder.  Eventually
you'll see a bridge on your left.  Cross it and get the chest for a bomb item.
Go back across and further down.  Then go left and up.  Eventually you run back
into your old friends the brush heads!

-----------------------
|Boss - 2x brush heads|
|brush head A 560hp   |
|knuckle:     70 dur  |
|brush head B 580hp   |
|spear:       80 dur  |
|drops: ore #9(2)     |
-----------------------

Keep some strong and durable weapons handy cause these guys are easier to kill
than they are to weapon break.  For the first round, just block and the guy with
the knuckle will wear himself out.  Next is the guy with the spear.  As a spear
guy, you have to bait and block him to get him to attack.  If you don't want the
ores, you can just finish them off manually.

To the left of the cave is a target.  Hit it for an ore #10.

Recover if you need to and go up into the cave.  Inside, go right and get the
chest for a +6 ATK ring accessory.  Then go down the ladder and south to the
next room.

Here you'll meet Bozo the clo..I mean Pike.  Pike is apparently evil.  After
pike walks away, Tier comes down and laughs at him because clowns are funny.

Anyway, take out your drill and drill the wall where the rocks are discolored,
to find 2 chests with a toy key and a syringe.  Now go back out and go down and
to the right to face Pike in the next room.

-------------------
|Boss - Pike      |
|700 hp           |
|axe:      95 dur |
|sword:    80 dur |
|drops: ore #10(2)|
-------------------

He's just a big meat-headed attacker.  Just keep some good high durability
weapons on hand and a good healing spell equipped.  Then just sit back and block
until each of your weapons are dulled to less than 10.  If you can last that
long, you'll get 2 ore #10s for your trouble.  Watch out for his paralysis
bombs!

After that battle, you get to meet the rest of the evil cast.  Bostaph is the
crazy guy with an evil black mustache.  Gillan is the evil older woman, and
Anise is the evil purple-haired girl.  We'll see more of them when they give us
more cool ores to work with!  Hehehehe!!

Anyway move along people!  There's nothing to see here!  Time to go back to the
city.

clear dungeon:
Talk to the green old man at the bottom right of town, next to a blue house.
He'll give you a pair of shoes combo item if you cleared all the breakable
objects in the eastern mine.

You'll get another dialogue and a night scene when you get back to your forge
house.

----------------------------------

Side quest:
Find the girl outside your forge house and she'll give you a tool combo item for
1000b.  This item gives bows a piercing effect which makes arrows go through
multiple targets if in range.  Imbue this item to a bow of your choice.

Cat hunt:
Talk to the old lady in the orange house again.  Her cat is lost in the woods
we'll be going to soon, at a part of the woods where your path is obsured by
trees and you'll find 2 chests.  Return the cat for a blue book combo item.

Side quest:
Go back to your home town and play the fishing game to the right of the mine.
Get 250 points (don't worry, points accumulate after each round) and buy a light
bulb from the guy for 250 points.  Then go all the way back to the city and look
for a green guy in the item shop.  Talk to him and he'll trade you another ore
#6 for the light bulb.

*Mansion job:
Go to the mansion and talk to the Lemmy's mom on the left.  In the woods,
find a demon monster thing that's red and blue (monster #46) and kill it.  Then
go back to her for a pink star combo item.

*If you want this job, DON'T TALK TO THE MAN AT THE FRONT DESK BEFORE TALKING
TO HER!

Next go to the item shop and talk to the clerk.  Your GB will get a package.
When you leave the shop you'll get another brief dialogue.  Head back to the
forge house for another scene.  V. E. runs off.  Go back to the shopping area
and you'll run into the professor for another dialogue.  From here, go to the
southern entrance.



----------------------------------------
|southern forest                       |
|Enemies:  39,40,41,42,43,44,45,46     |

|        ticket, lobster, blue potion, |
|        White paper                   |
|Stumps: Sticks, leather, worms,       |

|      #11 (drop from monster 46)      |
----------------------------------------

Hit the purple circle with your hammer and head south.  On the next screen
you'll meet some trolls.

--------------------------
|Boss - 3x trolls        |
|blue:   700hp           |
|red:    900hp           |
|yellow: 800hp           |
|drops: button, red sand,|
|       Yellow bomb      |
--------------------------

These guys are a bit tough.  I just went right in and started wailing on them
with my sword.  When you can, jump away to get some space and try not to get
surrounded.  Once you kill one of them, it gets easier and you can get some
time to heal.  They each have some type of special power.  The red one goes
berserk and the blue one heals.  I guess the yellow one casts status spells but
I cannot be sure.

This dungeon has 3 different encounter areas.  The first screen only has
enemies 39, 40, and 41.  The next 3 screens have  39, 40, 41, 42, 43, and 44.
The area right outside Death's cave

Go east from here and smash the crates, cut the grass, chop the tree stumps,
clean your room, do the dishes...you get the idea!  Anyway, take a moment and do
some hunting.  Look out for monster #43 (the blue wolf).  His rare drop is ore
#7 which you can also get from fighting Tier.  I'm not sure what it's special
effect is, but it has one!

East of here you'll see a treasure chest near some fruit trees.  You'll also run
into another scene where your group has caught the 2 brush heads that ambushed
you earlier.  Lemmy wants to kill them, but Jade persuades him not to.  Keep
going south but before you leave the screen, notice the 2 stumps blocking a path
leading into the trees.  Go up into the trees to reach the chest for a med
kit.

Now we'll leave the screen from the south.  In the next screen are more
tree-hidden paths and 2 chests containing a green bomb and 500b.  Follow the
left dirt path to get them.  Take the right path to leave the screen.

Another dialogue.  Tier appears hurt.  V. E. wants revenge!  They leave.
Continue south.  Hit the target by standing on the ladder and shooting from the
side.  you'll get an ore #12 for your troubles.  Also hunt for a blue and red
demon thing (monster #46) for some ore #11.  The demon seems to only spawn at
the Death's cave entrance.

You should go back to town if you want to finish some side quests.

Side quest:
Talk to the bratty kid and make him a weapon with over 30 DEF.  If you have some
ore #10, you can forge a drill with it, or you can use that ore #12 from the
target shoot to make him an axe.  ore #10 is rare.  You can also get ore #11 for
a drill in the next dungeon and then make the trip back.  The reward for giving
him the weapon is a red scroll combo item.

Side quest:
If you found some ore #11 by now (kill a few monster #46 or go ahead into the
cave and hunt for some), Go to the market area and talk to the man by the statue
left and below the weapon shop.  Buy a raw sword and forge him an ore #11 sword
for a coil combo item.

You can finish the cat side quest and the monster job side quest (if you found a
monster #46 and killed it in the woods)

Clear Dungeon:
Talk to the old man in the city again (the same guy you tslked to after clearing
the last dungeon).  If you cleared everything in the southern woods, he'll give
you a green book combo item

*Mansion Job:
If you finished the monster job, you can take on another job.  Talk to the man
at the front desk of the mansion.  He'll give you a job to kill 10 slime
monsters in Death's cave.  Slime monsters here are monster #51.  Your reward is
a pink tag combo item.

*If you talked to the man at the front desk before taking on the demon killing
job, you have to finish this job before you can take on the demon killing job

At this point you can make ore #12 at the weapon shop by fusing ore #11 with ore
#10.  you can also make ore #9 with 5 ore #8

Then go down into the cave!


----------------------------------------
|Death's cave                          |
|Enemies:  46,47,48,49,50,51,52,53,54  |
|Treasure:  ticket,  300b, egg,        |
|           purple star combo item,    |
|           pink tag combo item        |
|crates: gray leather, brown paper,    |
|        ticket, lobster, blue potion, |
|        White paper                   |
|Stumps: Sticks, leather, worms,       |
|        garlic                        |
|Fruit trees: rotten fruit, cherries,  |
|             nectar, brown nectar     |

|       sticks                         |

|Targets: ore #12                      |
|ores: #11 (drop from monster 46, 54   |
|            and from drill rocks)     |
----------------------------------------

Here's a good spot to do some leveling.  You got new ores, new monsters, and
best of all they regenerate every time you leave an enter the cave!  I spent a
day leveling here in order to get my sword and drill up.  I'm now 20,000b
richer, and I filled up on return stones, potions, and gray sharpening stones!
a good tip is not to sell your gray leathers in the normal shops.  There's a guy
at the train station that will buy all of your gray leathers for 100b a piece!

Anyway, once you're leveled up nicely in the early to mid 20s, Head south down
the ladder.  You'll notice the path splits.  Now follow my instructions VERY
carefully!  Take the right path first.  When you see the discolored wall, drill
through it for a blue healing triangle and a chest with a ticket inside.
Continue going right from here and go down south.  You'll come across another
discolored wall you can drill through.  Inside you'll get a purple star and
300b.  Hit the target inside as well for an ore #12.  Go south from the wall
before continuing right.  If you end up going north a screen and hit another
path split, GO BACK!

Before we venture into the next dialogue, let me tell you why I call this place
death's cave.  Inside is a very special mini-boss that to my knowledge requires
a special trick to beat.  To date, nothing I have hit him with has done anything
more than 1 dmg per hit.  That includes elements and spells.  He's a much harder
version of a boss found in the first bonus dungeon of Summon night: Sword craft
story 2.  If you insist on fighting him, save first and then go back to the
entrance of the cave but this time take the left fork and follow the path down
and to the right.  You may want to take a blindfold and a cigarette with you
because I have no strategy for this guy as of yet!

Update:  I figured it out!

-------------------
|Boss - Death     |
|2000 hp          |
|drops: blue bomb |
-------------------

Before taking this guy, make sure you can summon your GB in battle.  Your GB can
hit him.  It might be necessary to wait until you have the powered up form of
your GB first, but I don't think it's necessary.  Anyway, summon your GB and
attack with it.  Keep the GB alive so you can summon it as many times as
necessary to beat this guy (or at least bring him down to under 100 HP).

After the battle get the chests for an egg and a pink tag.  Also keep in mind
that this guy re spawns every time you leave and enter the dungeon from town.

Anyway, if you followed my directions from the previous sections, you should
reach another dialogue.  The evil gang has captured Murno.  You and the GB say
some stuff to distract them long enough for Murno to escape.  Anise and Pike go
after her and Gillan stays to fight you.

-------------------
|Boss - Gillan    |
|900 hp           |
|Claw:     75 dur |
|bow:      70 dur |
|drops: ore #12(2)|
-------------------

Sit and block her until she breaks both weapons.  Just watch out for her poison
bomb attack.  She'll run away or try and gain some distance before using it
usually.  You'll have to jump to avoid it.  You can also bait and block her to
hurry the wearing down of her weapons.

After the fight Lemmy charges in and is angry with you (who's side is he on
anyway?)  Then they both leave.  Go back to town and repair/heal up.

Clear dungeon:
If you managed to clear this dungeon of all obstacles (check by going back to
the entrance and leaving), go back to one of the old men and you'll get a blue
glasses combo item for your troubles.

Then go down south from here where Murno ran off.  She's caught again it seems.
Anise summons her fire dragon.  Pick the first option and the thing shoots a
fireball at you and you teleport to the other side of the dragon.  Now you get
to fight Anise.

-------------------
|Boss - Anise     |
|950 hp           |
|spear:    90 dur |
|sword:    85 dur |
|drops: ore #13(2)|
-------------------

Now this drop is more like it!  She doesn't have a bomb attack, and her dragon
attack, though insanely powerful, is easily avoided.  Just get enough space to
get under the dragon's head or even behind it's neck when it shows up.  In the
meantime, block and bait her and she'll easily waste her time and DUR.

After the fight, Murno tries to commit suicide by jumping into the waterfall.
You catch her and plunge to your deaths while everyone watches.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Eventually you wake up in prison.  Try to leave and you'll get another dialogue.
Choose the first option to speak to Murno and the second option to speak to
your GB.  Next morning you get escorted out.  A guard zaps your GB with a stun
gun.  Then you meet the warden and his squinty-eyed assistant (no really, he has
small eyes that he closes quite often).  Seems Anise framed you for something (I
always knew she was a rat, look at how she dresses like Mickey Mouse!)  After
some talking, the warden takes you into a new forge house.  It looks like some
kind of penal colony, so I'll call this town the penal colony.

According to others, the squinty-eyed assistant is named Tram.  I will call him
that throughout this FAQ.

Anyway, now we must answer a few questions.  The answers are:

1) 3rd option
2) 2nd option
3) 3rd option

Then he gives you something and tells you to go make something at the forge.
you just have to talk to the forge and you'll automatically forge whatever it is
and give it to him.  You never get to see it.  Instead, you get thrown back in
your cells.

After some yelling and screaming, you check the door to your cell and find that
someone left it open and clobbered the guard!  Go to the right cell and you'll
find it's empty.  Murno WAS there.  Now go to the left cell and you find it's
locked.  Well we don't see any obvious keys anywhere and you can't use any
weapons here.  You're gonna be scratching you head on this one for a while!
When you're ready, the answer is a little cryptic.  Go to the bottom left corner
and you'll see a pot object on top of a box.  Go up to it and examine it to take
it.  Now go back to the left cell and you'll get your hammer out of the stew
pot, and open the cell door.  Inside is your GB!  Now lets leave this place!

Guards are everywhere watching you!  Don't worry, they don't move so it's not a
stealth puzzle or anything serious like that.  There are just certain ways
you're not allowed to go.  From the prison, go right and north.  In the next
screen, go north and you can only take the left fork, so just keep going north
until you reach a house.  Inside the house is a forge room.  Remember this spot!
Go inside and rest and repair/reforge your weapons.  Then go back outside and
continue right and north to the next screen.

----------------------------------------
|Water Tower                           |
|Enemies:  55,56,57,58,59,60,61,62     |
|Treasure:  ore#14, red bomb,          |
|           blue bomb, ore #15 (2x),   |
|           Gray coil combo item,      |
|           Egg, gold scallop,         |
|           Blue star combo item,      |
|           450b,                      |

|        ore #14                       |
|ores: #14 (drop from monster 60, 62,  |
|            and from crates)          |
|      #10 (drop from monster 62)      |
----------------------------------------


First thing to notice are the 3 buttons.  You have to hit them with your hammer
to activate them.  Hit the green button to get at 5 crates.  Go back and forth
from this dungeon to harvest some ore #14 and improve your weapons a bit.

Enemies here can inflict a rust condition on your weapons.  Just like poison it
only lasts as long as the battle, but instead of affecting HP it affects DUR.
Also, return stones do not work here.

When you're equipped, hit the yellow triangle button to the right to get across
the pond.  When you're across, hit the pink button on the other side to get the
chest for another ore #14.  Then go north into the door.  The doors are hard to
see in this dungeon, so keep a close eye on the walls.

Inside you'll run across Tier.  Pick the first option and you'll be sent back
to the beginning of the dungeon.  Pick the second option to fight her.

-------------------
|Boss - Tier clone|
|1040 hp          |
|bow:      85 dur |
|drops: ore #16   |
-------------------

Bait and block for this battle.  All she has is a bow, but her AI is less
aggressive than Tier's previous one.

When you're done with this battle, continue north through the door.  Now you'll
reach the infamous ice puzzle that has stumped many a GameFAQs poster.  If you
run on the ice, you always slide either up, down, left, or right.  However, you
can walk diagonally on ice.  You have to "walk" and not run.  you can change
your default animation in the settings, or you can hit whatever button it is
that changes your walking speed.  If you speed up, then your default is already
set to walking, and your finger might be getting cramped on the button to run.
If you slow down, then your default is running.

Okay, first slide up to the top right corner of the ice platform.  Then walk
diagonally towards the clear spot down and to the left.  If you slide over to
the left from that spot and go down, you realize you could've just taken the
left path and slid right to get to that spot.  We went this way to practice
diagonal sliding techniques.  From that space, go to the bottom right tile and
walk diagonally up and left from there to reach the northern path.

From that pathway, slide over the ice to the right first to get a red bomb from
the chest.  Then go north and to the left to the other ice patch.  Slide down to
the left corner of the patch and walk diagonally up and to the right to get the
chest with a blue bomb.  Go north through the door.

Inside the room is clear, but just as you're about to leave, your GB stops you
and tells you to go back.  Suddenly you see Jade and V. E..  Talk to them and
choose the second option to fight them.  Before fighting however, make sure your
weapons are at full DUR and your spells are good and charged.

--------------------------
|Boss - 2x V. E. and Jade|
|       clones           |
|Jade         1100hp     |
|knuckle:     80  dur    |
|V. E.        1000hp     |
|Axe:         100 dur    |
|drops: ore #16(2)       |
--------------------------

Take 2 strong high DUR weapons to this fight and just block.  Get distance when
you need to heal or change weapons, by jumping over them.  They have aggressive
AIs which will attack you mercilessly no matter what.  Summon your GB to help
wear them down.

Continue north to enter anther room with a switch puzzle.  First hit the green
switch to get the crates, then go up and find your way to the second group of
switches.  There, hit the pink button and make your way back around and up for a
chest with an ore #15.  From here go north to the next screen.

Another ice puzzle!  First go to the top of the ice patch and slide right.  Then
slide down and follow the clear path to the right, underneath the divider.  Get
the 3 chests for a gray coil, an egg, and a gold scallop.  From there, slide
back to the left onto the ice-free spot and walk diagonally up and to the right
to reach the path to the next ice patch.

On this ice patch, slide left and then up and to the right to reach a chest with
a blue star item inside.  Then go back left, down, right, and to the right
again.  from the right side of the patch, slide up and left to reach the door.

In this room, you meet with Murno.  You have 2 possible fights here.  For the
first question pick the second option like usual, then you'll eventually get
another choice to make.  For the second choice, pick the first one to face a
clone of your GB, or pick the second one to face a clone of yourself.

-------------------
|Boss - GB clone  |
|hp varies        |
|drops: ore #16   |
-------------------

Fights just like your GB would.  Your GB starts the fight off, and if he/she/it
cannot finish in time, or gets defeated, you get sent in.

-------------------
|Boss - Hero clone|
|1150 hp          |
|sword:    80 dur |
|Spear:    90 dur |
|drops: ore #16(2)|
-------------------

For his sword, just keep bait and blocking and it will wear itself down.  It's
spear is tough, but bait and blocking is still effective.

In the next room is another switch puzzle.  First hit the green button and make
your way down to the bottom platform.  To the left of that platform is a chest
with 450b.  Go back and hit the pink button and follow the path to another set
of buttons.  hit the yellow button and make your way as far down as possible,
and then to the left under the divider for 2 chests.  One is empty and the other
contains a boot accessory that adds +5 to AGL and -10 to both ATK and DEF.  Then
go back up and go north.

You're gonna start running into a big fish enemy occasionally.  This is monster
#62.  it drops the common ore #14 and the rare ore #10.  If you have some
recovery items and sharpening stones, you might want to hunt them a bit.

This ice puzzle is pretty simple.  Take the right path and slide up and then
left.  Go to the bottom left corner on the clear patch you end up on, and slide
back right to hit the notch.  Then slide up.  From here, slide right and go to
the bottom right corner of the clear patch you end up on and then slide left and
up.

Now for another ice puzzle.  First go all the way to the right.  If you slide
up, you'll notice a narrow path leading to a chest.  To get it, you should line
yourself up so you're on the right side of the hole in the ice and almost
touching that side as you slide up.  In the chest is an ore #15.  Now go back
down and notice the clover-shaped stain on the ice.  Line up with it and slide
up.  You should hit the bottom of an ice hole.  From there slide left an then
up.  Now find and go through the door and prepare for another boss fight.

Inside you'll run into Anise and Tram.  Tram will summon a blue
dragon.  Pick either option and your GB will transform into his/her/its super
form!  Then your new GB starts the battle.

-----------------------
|Boss - water dragon  |
|3000 hp              |
|drops: ore #16       |
-----------------------

He's BIG!  Don't let his HP scare you though.  Just keep attacking his head.
He has a few attacks to watch out for.  His water breath attack can be viscious,
but if you stand under his head and just keep jumping and hitting, you'll avoid
that just fine.  His water vortex attack is a spell, so watch for the screen to
get dark.  His head will come down in the middle of the field  and roar first,
then his claws will show up.  Get to the edge of the field and keep running in
that direction so you don't get pulled in.  His last attack is him jumping up
and diving down, and then flying up.  If you see it, just stand where his head
used to be, and when it's over, go over to the other side and attack his head
again.  I was able to finish him off with the GB doing 96 DMG per hit.  If you
lose, you can finish him yourself anyway.

My stats were 1029 HP and lvl 28.  My GB had 1005 HP and lvl 28 at this point.

After the fight you get another night scene, and then get sent back to the forge
house.

You're still stuck in the penal colony, but now you have access to a shop
and some houses.  The shop is in your forge house and it sells raw weapons, gray
sharpening stones, healing items, save items, and bomb items.  There's also a
guy in front of an old broken house who will buy your gold scallops for 200b a
piece!

Side quest:
Talk to the guy in the lobby of the forge house and he'll trade you another ore
#13 for one of your ore #15s.

Side quest:
Talk to the kid outside the forge house and trade him a gray leather for a blue
vial.

Cat hunt:
Go to the house in the north east corner of town.  There's a woman outside the
house.  Go inside and talk to the kid.  Now go to the southwest corner of town
and look for a circle of trees with a cat in the middle.  Return the cat for an
ore #13.

Side quest:
Go to the south entrance to town (by the prison) and talk to a man there.  He
wants an ore #17 axe.  He'll give you another ore #13

Go back up north to the water temple area and you'll run into the warden and
Tram.  Murno goes with them to the upper entrance.  Follow them to reach the
fire tower.

----------------------------------------
|fire tower                            |

|ores: #17 (drop from monster 68, 69,  |
|            70, and from crates)      |
----------------------------------------

The main puzzle of this place is the button-guided platform.  You'll come
across arrow buttons which move one or more floating platforms in many rooms
here.  For the first puzzle, just hit the right button to move the platforms
right.  Go up to the next button set and hit the left button to move them back
left.  Then go up to the door.  You'll notice it won't open, but on either side
is a sword icon panel.  Hit each panel with your sword and the door can then be
opened.

In the next room, you can harvest crates for ore #17.  You may need to make a
few trips here.  Also, return stones don't work here.

When you're ready, go up to the 4 buttons and hit the left button.  Take the
left path for a chest with an ore #17.  Then go back and hit the buttons in this
order:  Right, right, up, right.  Now you can go up from the buttons and into
the next room.

This puzzle is a little tricky.  you have to align all 3 platforms by using the
walls.  This is another point in the game where the average player will want to
crush his cartridge.  Here's the solution:  Hit the right button 3 times and the
left button twice.  All 3 platforms should align.  if they don't, you'll need to
leave the dungeon and return to reset this puzzle.

When you've got it down, go up and to the right.  You'll see a door with 2 more
icon panels.  The left one needs a knuckle weapon and the other needs a drill
weapon to open.  Hit the panels with the right weapons and the door will open.
Inside you can get 2 chests with a blue bomb and another gray bomb.  when ready,
go back out and take the left path.

Inside you'll meet up with Tram, Murno, and the warden.  After talking,
unequip all your weapons except for your sword.  Now talk to the warden and pick
the first option to fight Tram.

-----------------------
|Boss - Tram          |
|1200 hp              |
|spear: 100 dur       |
|drops: ore #18       |
-----------------------

I think you'll be able to find ore #18 later, but you might as well get it from
him.  I forged an ore #17 sword and used this primarily.  Since he uses a spear,
you should bait and block him.  You should also slash him every once in a while
so he blocks.  Watch his HP bar and make sure it doesn't get too low.  He's very
weak and i was hitting him for over 130 DMG per hit and 13 DMG per hit when
blocking.  I use both methods to break him.

After the fight, they go up to the next floor.  Follow them up through the door
to the next room.  To get the barrels on the island, use your spear to reach
them.  In here, first take the left path for a chest with an egg inside.  Next
take the right-most path and go under the divider for 2 chests containing an
ore #15 and an ore #17.  Finally take the middle path for a dialogue.  You feel
a tremor and everyone runs off, so go down to the next room.

Another platform puzzle >yay<.  Hit the right button 3 times and go down to get
the chest for a green scroll.  Then hit left twice and go down that path to the
bottom, but don't go into the door!  Instead lets get the other chests by first
hitting left twice (on the bottom set of buttons) and going up for another egg.
Then hit left twice again and go up for an ore #18.  Now you can go down into
the next room.

Here most of the monsters drop ore #17, so if you didn't stock up on enough,
hunt for them here.

To get this chest, hit the buttons in this order first: Left, up, up, up, right.
Then cross to the island in the middle.  On the island buttons hit right 4 times
and hit down twice.  Get the chest for a blue scroll and then go back and hit
right 5 times.  You can now cross from the path at the right.  Go down to the
next room.

Hit the right button 4 times to reach the chest for a red star.  then go back
and hit left twice to cross to the other side.  Hit left 5 times and go up.
Hit the left panel next to the door with a sword and the right panel with a bow.
Inside are 3 chests containing a -10 DEF bracelet, an ore #13, and 500b.  Hit
the left arow button twice to reach a chest with an ore #18.  Hit the right
button twice and go down.  Take the left path to reach the exit.

Inside you'll meet up with Murno and Tram along with that fire dragon again.
After the dialogue, you can trek all the way back and go back to farming ores in
either dungeon.  If you think you have enough ores, talk to Murno to get sent
out of the dungeon.  Both dungeons will be locked, and the town is pretty much
abandoned.  Go back to the prison and open the middle cell to release Anise.
She controls the fire dragon, so she can call it off.  After she slaps you in
the face, she comes with you.  Go back to the tower and the fire dragon will
break free and shoot Tram.  Tram summons the water dragon and a fight
ensues.

-----------------------
|Boss - Fire dragon   |
|32000 hp             |
|drops:               |
-----------------------

You have control over a big powerful dragon, and what does he do?  He plays
patty cake!  You have 2 power shots to use during this battle, so use them
first to take off 4500 DMG each.  The general strategy is to slap him and block.
Just make sure he hits you while blocked.

After that you're congratulated and set free.  You can now leave the penal
colony by going left of the prison and up through the gate.  You get a blue
scale key item before leaving. Also make sure to hit the purple circle here.
Otherwise you'll have to go back through death's cave to get back here.  Now go
up past the waterfalls and you'll be back in Death's cave.

When you get out of the cave, you'll get a scene with V. E. and Jade.  Then
Lemmy interrupts and challenges you to a duel.

-----------------------
|Boss - Lemmy         |
|1320 hp              |
|sword: 100 dur       |
|Bow:    80 dur       |
|drops: ore #19(2)    |
-----------------------

Just block till he wears out his sword.  then bait and block to wear out his
bow.  Another aggressive AI.

After the battle Lemmy runs off (probably crying) now leave and go back to the
city.  On the way back you get another night scene.

--------------------------------------

Next morning you're back at the city forge house.  Go outside for another
dialogue.  Lemmy sneaks back to his forge next door.  The rest of you go to the
mansion for a round table discussing Murno's pendant.  Bostaph shows up and says
something evil.  Anyway, afterwards the western dungeon is now open!

Wait, I lied!  Apparently you you have to go back to the forge house to drop off
Murno.  Outside you'll get another dialogue with Tier and bratty kid.  Then they
run off.

Before we go on, there's a few things to do.  Go to the train station to sell
your gray leathers for more cash.  Next go to the shop and notice that you can
now make some new ores under the third option.  Saddly we're still missing an
ingredient to make ore #22.

If you managed to stay and farm some extra ore #14 and #17, now is a good time
to make some cash.  Ore #14 swords sell for 5,000b and ore #17 swords sell for
6,500b.  That's 3,500b and 5,000b profit respectively.  At this point you can
make over 100,000b relatively quickly.  You'll need that cash for later, but
don't worry if you missed out because money will get even more ridiculously
easy later on.

The shops have gotten some new things here as well:

The weapon shop now sells blue sharpening stones which recover 150 DUR each.

All the item shops have Klotzen potions for sale now.

Side quest:
Go to the weapon shop and trade one of your syringes for an ore #19.  The
syringe gives you an HP regeneration effect, but the one you get from an ore #24
weapon is better.  If you really want another syringe, you can get some from the
fishing mini-game at this point.

Side quest:
Go up the street left of the weapon shop and talk to the kid to trade him a blue
potion for a ring that gives you +15 ATK.  The blue potions can be found in
crates south of the city if you need one.

Cat hunt:
Talk to the old lady in the red house towards the south east of town again.  Her
cat is in the west gate dungeon.  Return it for another ore #19.

Clear dungeon:
Talk to the green old man in the same area as the red house.  He'll give you
blue sun glasses if you cleared all the breakable objects in Death's cave.

Side quest:
Talk to the man in the blue house above the bell tower.  He wants an ore #20
sword.  Give him one for another ore #19.

*You can only do one of these jobs at a time, so complete one before taking the
other.

Mansion job:
Talk to the professor in the mansion twice.  He'll give you a job to do.  In the
next dungeon, kill a blue rock golem (monster #78).  The reward is a green
scroll combo item.

Mansion Job:
Talk to the man at the desk in the mansion.  He'll ask you to kill 20 puppets
(monster #72).  The reward is a blue scroll combo item.

NOW we can go to the new dungeon!


----------------------------------------
|West gate dungeon                     |
|Enemies:  71,72,73,74,75,76,77,78     |
|Treasure:  Gruel, -10 DEF bracelet,   |
|           ore #21,                   |
|           blue tag combo item,       |
|           ore #22                    |

|             pink repair stone slivers|
|Targets: ore #21                      |
|ores: #15 (drop from monster 76)      |
|      #20 (drop from monster 77, 78   |
|            and from drill rocks)     |
----------------------------------------

Go left and inside the cave.  This is a good spot for farming ore #20.  Make
sure to go back to town in order to reset this dungeon.  If you collected a few
extra ore # 8 from the dungeon between Tier's town and the city, and ore #17
from the last dungeon, you can now make ore #22 at the weapon shop with the ore
#20 you'll find here.

Notice that there is a door here (up and to the right of the entrance) that
cannot be opened yet.  Xmas will be coming soon!  When you're ready, leave this
cave and go back outside.

Go south and cross the bridge to the left.  Go north and into the cave.  There's
a target next to the entrance you might want to shoot for an ore #21.  Anyway,
inside, go right and north.  Follow this path around to another cave, but go
left past it for now.  Keep going left and then north to doorway #3.  Inside
you'll find 4 chests containing gruel, a -10 DEF bracelet, an ore #21, and a
blue tag combo item (to the right of the entrance is a cat if you spoke to the
old woman in the red house).  Now go back down and to the right to the doorway I
told you to pass before.  Go inside of course!

Outside again, you'll see a bolder puzzle. Push the south bolder, left to the
wall, then up to the wall, and finally left again so you can go up to the next
bolder.  Push the next bolder to the right and the next bolder to the left.
Drill the collapsed mine shaft to get a chest with a ticket.  Get out and push
the bolder to the left.

At this point, go back to town and finish your side quests.  Also drop back by
the penal colony.  You can get there the same way you went in Death's cave.

Side quest:
Go back to the water and fire towers and climb the steps to find a kid.  talk to
her and she'll sell you a bandanna and a yellow medal combo item for 1200b.
These can be used on knuckle weapons for a special attack.

Use the purple circle to head back to the city.  When ready, go back to the west
gate dungeon and continue on.

The path splits here, and the fight changes depending on which way you go.

Left path:

To the left you'll notice a soldier and a cave man doing something.  Suddenly
they'll leave going north.  Before we follow them, go left and drill the
collapsed mine shaft for a chest with an ore #22.  Now you can either push the
bolder to the left and go north, or go back down and go up the path we didn't
take.  Either way will lead us to the boss.

Clear dungeon:
Find the old man again.  This time he'll give you a motor combo item for
clearing all obstacles in the west gate dungeon.


Keep going north until you come across Anise, Gillan, Chuckles, the soldier and
the cave man.  You get to fight the cave man AND the soldier >lucky you<.

These guys aren't worth the trouble.  Just beat them up with your sword.  The
cave man has an electric eel attached to it and can cast lightning.  it also has
a laser attack.  Both can be avoided by running away.  Once he's down, the guard
is pretty weak.  Just be sure to avoid his red bombs or you'll get rusted. Ore
#22 can be made in the shop, and fetching the materials is far easier unless you
have a DUR breaker weapon.

Right path:
Note that this may have to do with timing instead of which path you take

First you run into the caveman alone.

-------------------------------
|Boss - Cave man              |
|2100hp                       |
|drops: ore #20(2)            |
-------------------------------

kill it and continue north.  Ahead you'll run into 2 soldiers.

-------------------------------
|Boss - Soldiers              |
|SoldierA:   1200hp           |
|Fist:        90 dur          |
|SoldierB:   1200hp           |
|Drill:      115 dur          |
|drops: ore #20(2)            |
-------------------------------

These guys are fairly tough to weapon break, but not worth the trouble.  Just
kill them and move on.  Ore #20 is plentiful in the dungeon anyway.

Both paths:

Afterwards, The soldier(s) run(s) away and Gillan hugs you.  Actually, she/he
tricks you and handcuffs you (I know what YOU'RE thinking, but no).  You wake up
in a cave.  Gillan is smacking you around.  "It" points to the bomb ready to
blow up the cave if you move.  Then Anise is ready to kill you with a spear
while revealing their evil plans.  Suddenly Lemmy comes in and zaps Anise.  He
chases them off and frees you.  Finally he gives you back your stuff and
disables the bomb.  Go to the right to get your GB.  Then heal and repair your
stuff.  When you're ready, head north for another boss battle.

Up ahead you'll see Lemmy.  just before you can thank him, he gets attacked by a
giant bat.  Get ready to fight the bat!

-----------------------
|Boss - Giant bat     |
|5000 hp              |
|drops: ore #22       |
-----------------------

Watch out for his drill attacks and sleep ray attack, but he's pretty easy to
beat up.

You wake up and the alarm bell sounds.  Go outside for another dialogue.

Cat hunt:
Talk to the old lady in the red house towards the south east of town again.  Her
cat is in the wind cave.  Return it for another ore #21.

Side quest:
Talk to the woman in the blue house above the bell tower.  She wants an ore #23
spear.  Give her one for another ore #21.

Side quest:
If you got that +15 ATK ring the day before, look for a green guy between the
weapon shop and lottery.  He'll give you an ore #22 for the ring.

*You can only do one of these jobs at a time, so complete one before taking the
other.

Mansion job:
Talk to the professor in the mansion.  He'll give you a job to do.  In the next
dungeon, kill a green fighter (monster #84).  The reward is a love letter combo
item.

Mansion job:
Talk to the man at the desk in the mansion.  He'll ask you to kill 30 lizards
(monster #83).  The reward is a tool combo item.

Make a trip back to the penal colony as well.

Side quest:
to the left of the forge house is a girl.  talk to her and she'll sell you a
bamboo combo item for 1500b.  This gives you a slightly better healing effect
than the syringe, but the ore #24 weapon is still better.

When you're ready, head for the eastern mine.  V. E., Jade, and Tier will show
you that the locked door is now open.  Proceed to the next dungeon.

|      #23 (drop from monster 84, 86   |
|            and from drill rocks)     |
----------------------------------------

Monster #85:  Green wind birds.  Occasionally drop gold eggs and ore #18.
Farm them in the second half of the dungeon.

Monster #84:  Green fighters.  Occasionally drop ore #23.  Watch out for their
gale punches!  It's easier to farm that ore from drill rocks.

Monster #86:  Green Tengus.  These guys are a rare spawn with fairly high HP.
They aren't frequent enough to note.

Monster #83:  Green lizards.  They're fast but not too tough unless they show
up with Green clouds (monster #80), in which case, try not to get put to sleep
or you'll end up with criticals from these guys.  Some times they can sleep you
without green clouds!

Go up north and you'll meet up with V. E. following a soldier.  Keep going north
and you'll run into a wind puzzle.  The small columns carry you up and the big
columns push you down.  Go up and go to the right and up again to reach the
bolder.  Push it left to block the wind column.  Now go left and get the chest
here for an ore #23.  You'll need these to forge another ore in town.

Go left into the next room and you'll see V. E. is being attacked by robots.
you get to fight one of them.

------------------------
|Boss - Giant red robot|
|5000 hp               |
|drops: big bomb(2)    |
------------------------

If you have a good sword, just run up and keep slashing it.  I was doing 101 DMG
per hit at this point, but my sword also had a few AGL points modded to it.
when he's low on HP he starts a 10 second timer.  Kill him before it goes up.

After the scene, bratty kid and Tier come running in.  They go back to town.
Hit the target up north for another ore #19 then head to the next room so go
left.

Go up to get a chest with a big bomb inside.  Get the cat south of the chest (if
you talked to the old lady).  Go to the big column to go down the ledge and get
some crates then go back up using the small column.  If you haven't noticed yet,
you can't solve this puzzle from here!  This part baffled me for almost a week.
I eventually used a code just to see if it was a bug or something.  No matter
what, you eventually end up stuck here and ready to smash your cartridge or
computer.

Well, It took a while, but I did figure it out.  Let's go back to town and I'll
explain.

Back in town, heal up and restock.  Now go to the west gate dungeon again.
Remember that door that wouldn't open?  Yeah, that's where we're headin!
Anyway, you'll meet up with Tier at the gate.  Then go in and you'll see that
bratty kid got attacked.  Then Tier and bratty kid run off again.  Go inside the
first cave and you'll run into The Joker again.  Get ready for a fight!

-------------------
|Boss - Pike      |
|1700 hp          |
|axe:      120dur |
|sword:    100dur |
|drops: ore #24(2)|
-------------------

Just sit back and block.  At least one of your weapons should be over 200 DUR by
now.  If not, go back and bring your tech to 255, then reforge with ore #23.  I
had a sword at 267 DUR and a drill at 129 DUR.  Watch out for his paralysis
bombs and heal when needed.  If you want to, you can forge ore #24 later on, but
you'll need ore #22 and ore #23 to do it.

Anyway, after the fight, V. E. beats up Pike and he runs away through the door.
Go back to town and heal up using a return stone, then head back and go up into
the newly opened door.

We're in a different part of the wind cave now.  You can bash some crates for
goodies if you wish.  Get the chest to the left for another ore #23.  Go up the
ladder and into the next room.

This is also a great place to farm ore #23 (and some ore #18 if you're lucky).
Ore #23 weapons sell for 10,000b a piece (8,500b profit).  Use the door between
the western mine and the wind cave to reset the crates and drill rocks.

Around this point you might start seeing a few monsters to make note of.  The
green birds (monster #85) drop gold eggs and occasionally drop ore #18.  The
green animal fighter things (monster #84) and the green Tengu-looking things
(monster #86) drop ore #23.

If you go back to town, you can make a few new ores:

ore #9  - 5x ore #8
ore #12 - 1x ore #10 + 1x ore #11
ore #22 - 1x ore #8 + 1x ore #14 + 1x ore #20
ore #24 - 1x ore #22 + 1x ore #23

Ore #24 gives weapons a good healing effect.  You win a few in the game, but if
you need more, you now know how to get them.

Another boulder puzzle awaits you here but first go up and to the right into the
next room.  We're now on the other side of the impossible puzzle.  Go up and
push the boulders into the wind columns.  Go to the scrape marks of the middle
columns and go down to get the 2 chests for a green star and an ore #24.  Now
leave back out to the left.

First take the middle path and push the boulder up.  Then take the upper path
and push the boulder left into the column.  Go down the scrape marks and go all
the way left and down for 2 chests containing 500b and a big bomb.  go back up
to the middle path and to the left to the next room.

Get ready for a boss fight.  Go back to town and heal up if you need to, then
proceed north up the ladder or column.  V. E. got captured by Gillan and Pike.
Jade comes to the rescue and you have to fight Gillan.

-------------------
|Boss - Gillan    |
|1680 hp          |
|knuckle:  95 dur |
|bow:      90 dur |
|drops: ore #24(2)|
-------------------

Same as last time.  Beware her poison bomb attacks and her knuckle throw attack.
Block till her sword is broke and then bait and block till her bow is spent.
Heal if necessary.  If you miss, you can make ore #24 later anyway.

After the fight, V. E. knocks Gillan out briefly.  Then they all run off north.
Go back to town and heal, then head north with them.  In this room, go north and
left to reach a boulder.  Go under the boulder and push it up, then push it
right into the column.  Go right to get 2 chests with a green tag and a red tag.
Go left to the next room.

Go north and up the ladder.  Keep going north into the next room.  At this
point, If you have the money, buy some red bombs and equip them to a GB skill
slot.  you'll need them later.  6 of them should be enough.

Clear dungeon:
Find the old man again.  If you cleared the wind cave of all obstacles, you get
an orange pendant combo item.

Keep going north until you reach the door.  You'll see a scene.  Soldiers
captured Murno and her father.  Anise Attacks the hero and tries to kill him
again, but Tier fires a shot and at the last second, Murno's father moves
everyone out of the way and takes the hit.  Then Anise summons her fire dragon
again.  We get to fight Anise again!

-------------------
|Boss - Anise     |
|1780 hp          |
|spear:    100dur |
|sword:    100dur |
|drops: ore #25(2)|
-------------------

Block until her sword is gone.  When she has her spear, run around and keep some
distance.  She'll use her special attack a few times and will waste a lot of DUR
(assuming you know enough to run away from a slow moving fire ball).  Her dragon
attack is the same as last time.  When her spear is at 30 DUR or less, take some
swipes at her to get her to block, and attack her while she's blocking.  You'll
need some DUR and HP for the next battle.

After her defeat, the fire dragon tries to fry you again, but you teleport to
the side.  Now you fight the dragon again.

-----------------------
|Boss - Fire dragon   |
|6000 hp              |
|drops:  ore #24      |
-----------------------

He has a few attacks.  Here's a strategy for them:

Fire breath - He opens his mouth.  If you're under his head and jump slashing
him, you're OK.

Tail slap - He'll rear back and disappear.  Stay on the side his head was at!
Wait a few seconds for his tail to come down.  Then go to the other side to
slash his head again.

Claw - if you see a flame come out of the corner of his mouth, run away and wait
for it.  Mid-field is a safe spot to wait, as long as you can see the claw
without it hitting you.

Dragon breath - The background goes dark.  Run to mid-field.  It will take
50-60% of your life if you get caught!

After this fight, Anise puts the dragon away and Tier gives you a hug.  Then we
get a night scene.  This one determines who you get to fight as a bonus battle
and who you meet in the end of the game.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Day 10+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Murno:
If you picked her, she asks you to make her a sword.  You do so next morning.
Unequip all weapons but your sword and choose the first option when you talk to
her outside.  you'll start to duel, but she'll lose control of the sword and
throw it in the air.  It will land next to her.  Your GB will attack you.  HP
and strategy vary.

GB:
Next morning, unequip all but one weapon and talk to your GB outside and it will
challenge you.

V. E.:
Next morning she'll give you a raw axe to make for her.  Go to the forge and you
will forge it.  Unequip all but 1 weapon and talk to her and she will challenge
you.

-------------------
|Boss - V. E.     |
|1800 hp          |
|axe:      120dur |
|drops: ore #26   |
-------------------

If you have red bombs, use them.  They can knock off a good 40 DUR at minimal HP
damage.  When she's standing around, slash her once to get her to block. then
attack her while she blocks to take out her DUR.  Do this till she reaches about
20 DUR, then if your HP is above 500, sit back and block till she breaks it.

Lemmy:
He'll challenge you outside his house next door.  After the scene, talk to him
at the north entrance to town to fight him.

-------------------
|Boss - Lemmy     |
|1750 hp          |
|sword:    105dur |
|bow:      95 dur |
|drops: ore #26(2)|
-------------------

This guy is tough!  On the bright side, there's no weapon restriction, but on
the downside, he has 2 weapons and you have no healing items unless you bought
some and equipped them to a GB slot previously.  Healing items would make the
battle a lot easier.  if you were smart enough to get some red bombs, use them.
Basic tactics are bait and block as well slash him when he's standing around in
order to get him to block.  His bow has a powerful attack which you have block
at just the right moment or it takes over 100 HP from you.

Jade:
Next morning unequip all but 1 weapon and talk to him outside to challenge him

-------------------
|Boss - Jade      |
|1700 hp          |
|knuckle:  100dur |
|drops: ore #26   |
-------------------

Pretty easy.  Just make sure you have a high DUR weapon and a lot of HP.  then
sit back and block.  If you equipped any heal items or red bombs to your GB
skills, you probably won't need them unless things get bad.

Tier:
Next morning Tier asks if you want to go back to her town.  Pick the first
option and you'll be teleported to her mother's shop.  After the dialogue, go
upstairs and heal/repair.  Then meet her at the eastern entrance of town.

-------------------
|Boss - Tier      |
|1300 hp          |
|bow:      95 dur |
|sword:    105dur |
|drops: ore #26(2)|
-------------------

Use red bombs if you have them and try to get her to wear herself down.  Be
careful if you try to get her to block.  Her AI is aggressive and prefers to
attack and counter.  Red bombs are most effective if she has her sword out, so
use them then.

After the fight, you come back to the forge house in the city and meet up with
everyone.  Murno and her dad go upstairs to their room.  You go upstairs to your
room.  When you Wake up, V. E. informs you that they were kidnapped again!  Heal
up and repair.  Check the lottery if you have any extra tickets.

Side quest:
Man left of weapon shop wants an ore #28 drill.  He'll give you an ore #25 for
it.

Side quest:
Man outside mansion will trade you a switch combo item for an ore #22.

Side quest:
Go down one flight of stairs from the mansion and go right to find a girl.
She'll sell you a blue book for 2000b.

Cat hunt:
Talk to the old lady in the red house towards the south east of town again.  Her
cat is in the Electric woods.  Return it for an ore #26.

Side quest:
Talk to woman above bell tower (she's outside this time).  She wants a plum and
she'll give you an ore #26 for it.

*You can only do one of these jobs at a time, so complete one before taking the
other.

Mansion job:
Talk to the woman in the mansion.  She'll give you a job to do.  In the wind
dungeon, kill a green Tengu (monster #86).  The reward is a sharpening stone
combo item.

Mansion Job:
Talk to the man at the desk in the mansion.  He'll ask you to kill 50 Gremlins
(monster #82) in the wind cave.  The reward is a tool kit combo item.

When you're ready, head back to the wind dungeon.  Go all the way back to where
we fought the fire dragon.  You'll find that Murno and her Dad got captured
again by those soldiers.  After the dialogue they go into the door and to the
electric woods.

You can hunt for ore #27 a bit near the beginning, but be careful not to go up
and trigger the next event until you're ready!  When you are, go up and the
prisoners will be escorted into the teleporter.  You then get captured by the
soldiers, but jade helps you trick them and you go into the teleporter following
Murno and her dad.  Go back to town if you need to heal up.  Make sure your GB
has it's skills set up again.  When ready, go up and face 2 guards.

|drops: ore #27(2)    |
-----------------------

Monsters drop ore #27 around here.  You can get a few by hunting in the
beginning of the dungeon.  Just throw everything you got at these guys.  They
don't give you much breathing room.  You can wear out the sword guy by just
blocking.  Then kill the other guy however you feel like.

After the battle, take the teleporter to the right to find the cat.  You'll have
to go up from that area into another teleporter before you can actually reach
the cat.  The cat will only appear if you talked to the old lady in the city.
Take the north teleporter if you want to move on.

Eventually you'll be in a section with 2 fruit trees.  Take the left teleporter.
From there go left, hit the target for an ore #28, and take the teleporter.
You'll find yourself in a section with a crystal below you.  Go up and around
the wall.  To the right are 2 chests with a pink and a gold tag.  Below you is a
chest with an ore #27.  After taking them, go up to the next section.

Here, you'll see another crystal to your right.  Go up to the fork and then go
right for 2 more chests containing 500b and sun glasses.  Take the right fork
for a mini-boss.

---------------------------
|Boss - Giant yellow robot|
|6500 hp                  |
|drops: gray bomb         |
---------------------------

Just keep hitting him with your sword.  He's slow.

When ready, take the left fork.  Go up and hit the purple circle, then proceed
north to the next section.

Note that you may want to hunt for some ores here.  In addition, there's a
monster here that drops return stones.  It's a big green skeleton and it's quite
common (monster #93).  The giant red and white hat things (monster #89) and the
drum/scare crow looking thing (monster #90) as well as the giant plug-tanks
(monster #94) drop ore #27.

How convenient!  There's a town here..er WAS here.  At least the forge house
still works.  Repair here and get ready for another boss battle.  This time you
fight both Pike AND Gillan.  When ready go up north for another scene and the
fight.

--------------------------
|Boss - Pike and Gillan  |
|Pike        1900hp      |
|axe:        126 dur     |
|Gillan      1520hp      |
|bow:        101 dur     |
|drops: ore #28(2)       |
--------------------------

These guys are easy if your HP and DUR are fairly high.  I had around 1700 HP at
this point (level 43).  I used a low DUR drill (169 DUR) to break Pike's axe.
Gillan has a bow, so block till she gets to around 50 DUR, then bait and block
until she's broken.

After the fight, V. E., Jade, and Tier show up to take them to prison.  Go north
into the teleporter and keep going into the teleporters you see along the way,
until you reach a cave.  That cave is the next dungeon.

Clear dungeon:
Before you go, go back to the city and find the old man south and to the right
of the bell tower.  He'll give you an ore #25 for clearing the electric woods.

----------------------------------------
Here's a good place to do some leveling if you have a good supply of return
stones.  You should have a high enough rank by now to unlock the middle option
at the forge for your weapon of choice.  If you found a weapon you like by now,
use the middle option to upgrade it's stats every 255 TEC.  My sword has these
stats right now:

ATK 152
DEF 115
AGL 18
DUR 322

I'm at lvl 50 right now with 1997 max HP.  You don't have to level this far and
you could level farther if you want.  Anyway, here's what you can run into:

#96 Pink dinosaurs - These guys love to inflict paralysis.  Don't fight them if
you don't have to.

#98 Blue centaurs - They drop return stones.  Fight them whenever possible.

#99 Pink robots - They drop blue sharpening stones.  Not a bad drop!

#100 Green giant spiders - They drop Curry and ore #30.  They also inflict
poison and sleep, as well as pair with pink dinosaurs.

#101 Giant robot crabs - they drop ore #30 and blue sharpening stones.

#102 Giant fish - they drop ore #30 and plates of rice.  The ore is nice, but
the plates heal 1000HP

There's another boss fight coming up, so you may want to make sure you're
repaired and healed up.  When ready, go north and you'll see Murno and her
father in a big circle thing with Anise.  She'll summon her useless fire dragon
again and then fight you.

-------------------
|Boss - Anise     |
|1880 hp          |
|spear:    122dur |
|sword:    112dur |
|drops: ore #29(2)|
-------------------

She takes a long time, but block until her sword is done, then bait and block to
get her spear to break.  Occasionally slash at her to get her to block with her
spear.

Anise calls her dragon back.  Then Bostaph shows up and takes Murno and her
father deeper into the castle.  You decide to follow by taking the teleporter
in the circle.

Go back to town and go to the city for a few side quests.

Mansion job:
Talk to the woman on the left in the mansion.  She wants you to kill one
plug tank (monster #94).  the reward is an ore #25.

Mansion job:
Talk to the guy at the front desk.  He wants you to kill 99 spirits (monster
#88).  The reward is an ore #29.

If you've been collecting ores, ore #27 weapons sell for 14,000b and ore #30
weapons sell for 17,000b.

I've written 2 paths to get through this dungeon.  If you haven't beaten the
mid-boss and/or you want all the treasures, take the long way.  If you did beat
the mid-boss and you got all the treasures, or don't want them, take the short
way.

----------
|Long way|
----------

In this first room, you cannot use the return stone, but you can when you enter
the door south and to the right of you.  When you get there, you'll run into
some controller-platform puzzles (just like the ones we saw in the fire temple).
Hit the right arrow button in the first group, 3 times to get the platform
across to form the bridge.  The door up ahead requires you to hit the left
panel with a sword and the right panel with an axe.  We saw the same panel
doors in the fire temple.

The next room is an ice puzzle.  Remember what I said about ice puzzles last
time?  Good!  Now go up to the path opening and slide up, then left, then down,
then right, then up, then right, then down, then left, then down, then right,
and finally up.  Go up the path and to the left for a chest with an ore #30
inside.  Then head right into the door at the top.

In here, go up to the button group and hit up twice, then hit right 5 times,
and finally hit down once.  Go across to the right to get some chests for a
green star, blue star and pink star.  Go up into the door and go up the right
fork for some crates.  If you take the icy path, you'll end up back in the
previous room at the upper path we didn't take.  You can go smash the crates
there and slide back up if you want.  Take the upper door and let's move on.

Go left and up to get a chest with an ore #26.  Take the right fork for another
button group. hit the buttons down once, left 4 times, up once, right 5 times,
down once, and finally left 4 times.  Go up and to the left for a chest with a
plate of rice (this is a good heal item and is rarely dropped by monster #102
which looks like a giant fish).  At the door, use a spear on the left panel and
a bow on the right panel to open it.

Inside is another boss battle.  Bostaph hits Anise with an axe.  She loses
control over the fire dragon, and you have to fight it as she runs off.  You
summon the water dragon again.

-----------------------
|Boss - Fire dragon   |
|32000 hp             |
|drops:               |
-----------------------

It's another dragon battle.  Actually, it's the exact same dragon battle as last
time.  Just use all your wave attacks for 4500 DMG each and swipe and block.
His fire breath attack is unavoidable and unblockable, but if you keep fighting,
you'll win eventually.

The next room has more platform puzzles. Go to the first group and hit the
buttons up 5 times and right once to get to the next group.  Hit the buttons of
the second group left twice, up once, then left once to get the crates.  Go
back to the second group of buttons and hit right twice, down once, and right 7
times to get the chests on the right side for a red tag and a pink tag.  At the
button group again, hit down once and right once to reach some more crates on
the right side near the top.  Go back to the buttons and hit left 3 times, up
once, left 5 times, down once, and left once to reach 2 chests on the left side
near the top for a green tag and a blue tag.  Back at the buttons hit right
twice, up once, and right 3 times to reach the door.  Hit the left panel with a
knuckle weapon and the right panel with a drill to open the door.

This next room has an ice patch on either side of the room.  Go to the right
wall and go up to the ice patch without sliding.  To get a chest with another
ore #30, you need to walk diagonally up and to the left from that point.  Go
back down and now align yourself so you're standing in the middle of the second
floor tile from the right wall.  You should have a dark spec of gravel or dirt
on either side of you, and you should be facing the one tile off-shoot of the
blue peninsula in the middle of the ice patch.  Slide up from there to reach a
chest with 500b. Go back down and to the left side.  Align yourself by looking
for a T-shaped tile and standing on a crack in the left inside corner of the "T"
tile and slide up to reach the door.

When you're ready to leave, go down to the control buttons.  Hit left twice and
down 3 times to reach 2 chests containing a yellow tag and a gray coil.  go to
the control button group on the bottom right and hit right 5 times, up once,
and right once.  Then head right and up to the door.  Hit the left panel with a
bow and the right panel with a drill.

In here, are a bunch of ice paths.  I'll number them 1-5 starting from the left.
Go left and take path one for 2 chests containing another plate of rice and a
red star.   Go back down and take path 5 to the right for 2 chests containing
another 500b and an ore #32.  Go back and take path 3 to reach the door.

In here, take the left path to reach the door.  You can also save here at the
sword.

In the room with the save sword, spend some time hunting.  The giant crabs
(#101) and giant fish (#102) spawn most frequently in this room.  Use return
stones to heal up and repair, and you should amass a good amount of ore #30
and maybe a few Rice plates.

-----------
|Short way|
-----------

Heal at the blue triangle if you need to, and go up to the big circle
teleporter.  Use it and go down and to the right, into the door.  In the next
room, hit the platform buttons with your hammer and hit right 3 times to line up
the platform and cross.  hit the left panel with a sword and the right panel
with an axe to open the door.

On the ice patch, go up to the path opening and slide up, then left, then down,
then right, then up, then right, then down, then left, then down, then right,
and finally up.  Head right into the door at the top.

In this room, head up to the control buttons and hit up twice and then right
twice.  In the next room, slide up the path and heal at the triangle.  Then go
into the next room.

In here, hit the buttons down once, left 4 times, up once, right 5 times, down
once, and finally left 4 times.  At the door, use a spear on the left panel and
a bow on the right panel to open it.  Go inside, go up past where the dragon
battle was, and go up into that door to reach yet another platform puzzle.

For the first control group, hit up 5 times and hit right once.  Go up to the
next group and hit left once.  Hit the left panel with a knuckle weapon and the
right panel with a drill to open the door.

In this room are 2 ice patches on either side of you.  Go to the left side.
Align yourself by looking for a T-shaped tile and standing on a crack in the
left inside corner of the "T" tile and slide up to reach the door.  Go up to the
next room.

In this room, go down to the control buttons.  Hit left twice and down 3 times.
Go to the control button group on the bottom right and hit right 5 times, up
once, and right once.  Then head right and up to the door.  Hit the left panel
with a bow and the right panel with a drill.

In the next room are a bunch of ice paths.  I'll number them 1-5 starting from
the left.  Take path 3 to reach the door.  In here, take the left path to reach
the door.  You can also save here at the sword.

In the room with the save sword, spend some time hunting.  The giant crabs
(#101) and giant fish (#102) spawn most frequently in this room.  Use return
stones to heal up and repair, and you should amass a good amount of ore #30
and maybe a few Rice plates.

In this next room is a boss fight.  You'll see a huge sword and a chain in the
middle of the room.  Murno is atop a throne of some sort.  Bostaph is there and
Lemmy runs in to take him down, only to be met with a blow from his axe.  Now
you get to fight Bostaph!

-------------------
|Boss - Bostaph   |
|2000 hp          |
|drill:    136dur |
|axe:      131dur |
|drops: ore #31(2)|
-------------------

Swipe to get him to block when he has his drill out.  Make sure you have some
durable weapons and that you did some upgrading before hand.  His drill has a
powerful tornado attack that will suck you in and hit you repeatedly in the air.
To avoid it, run away by double tapping in the opposite direction of the storm.

After the fight, Your GB looses control and you have to fight it.

-------------------
|Boss - GB        |
|1775 hp          |
|drops:           |
-------------------

Strategy varies, but make sure you don't take too much damage because you have
to fight another boss.  ME!!

You'll get a choice after this battle.  Select the first option to go back to
your menu and use stuff to recover and repair, as well as set back up all your
GB spells.

-----------------------
|Boss - Master sword  |
|4000 hp              |
|drops: Medkit        |
-----------------------

MWAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!  I'm invincible!  Actually, most of my cool attacks were
nerfed.  I'm left with a red force field and a few beam attacks.  Just keep
slashing with a good sword and I die pretty easily

I can't believe they took out my cool full-screen Nuke attack which did 9999
damage to all on screen!  There was this move where I'd throw myself across the
screen and decapitate you!  They didn't even keep that!  I'll have my day
Banpresto!!!

Anyway, after that battle you get a scene where you rescue Murno and then Anise
makes a run for the sword.  You get there and get transported to a new room.
Leave the room through the door to the right of you.  Go back to town by going
down and leaving the room, then using a return stone.

Back in ghost town, you'll meet a strange man who acts as a weapon and item
shop.  In his weapon shop menu, you can make ore #32 if you wish, however we
don't have the last ingredient for it.

When you're done, go back up into the room where we fought.  While everyone is
partying, the librarian grabs the sword and opens a portal.  You get to fight
another boss.

-----------------------
|Boss - lava monster  |
|10000 hp             |
|drops:               |
-----------------------

Just keep slashing at him.  He has 2 devastating attacks.  In hand form, he will
pull away and leave the screen, before collapsing on half the battle field.  In
puddle form, you can hit the eyes, but when his mouth shows up, run off the
puddle before you get eaten.  That attack will most likely kill you.  On top of
that, you only have 2 minutes to kill this boss.  I was probably doing around
200 dmg to this guy per sword hit at this point btw.  50 slashes and he's done.
With a sword, you can accomplish this in under 60 seconds .  You should be able
to do 150 dmg with a sword at this point at least.


After the fight, librarian can't control the sword, so I get to posses him and
suck you guys into my sub-dimension.  Inside, you get to face me as the dark
swordsman!

-----------------------
|Boss - Dark swordsman|
|3200 hp              |
|Sword: 300 dur       |
|drops:               |
-----------------------

You'll first find him fairly weak, but once his hp is down to 0, you find that
he does not die.  You have to destroy his sword to destroy him.  He has a few
nasty attacks to watch out for.  He casts a spell where he uses some DUR to
create a fireball that does minor but repeated damage.  He then cuts the
fireball with his sword, and if you are in range when this happens, you'll lose
some major HP.  His other attack rarely occurs if you hit him enough.  He can
turn his cape into a large set of jaws that do some major damage when they snap
shut.  Every time he gets down to 0 HP, he leaves his sword exposed for a few
rounds.  I did this 4 times to defeat him.

You get to make a choice at the end of who leaves the sub-dimension.  You or
your GB.  Pick the first option to leave your GB behind or the second option to
send the GB home.  Your choice, so watch the credits and the ending.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>> Extra material >>>>>>>>>>

After the ending, you wake up back in your room in your home town.  After
repairing and re-forging, you can go out and challenge V. E..  She's right
outside the door.

-------------------
|Boss - V. E.     |
|4500 hp          |
|axe:      300dur |
|spear:    235dur |
|drops: ore #34(2)|
-------------------

You'll probably die a few times and you'll definitely want at least 2 high stat
weapons for this fight.  Mainly high DUR and high DEF.  Hit her and hope she
blocks.  This is easier with her axe than it is with her spear because of that
twirl attack.  I said you'll probably die a few times right?  Well, there's a
reason for that.  Her axe has a devastating spell which will hit you repeatedly
for over 400 damage per hit (if you're unlucky enough to get caught, and don't
have a healing spell set as your GB support spell).  She also has bombs which
can kill you instantly.  The fight alone is worth it.  She gives over 200,000
EXP depending on your current level, as a bonus if you break both weapons (I
think.  I could be wrong about the conditions).

Side quest:
If you have 1,000,000b, talk to VE and she'll sell you a ring with gives you +20
to ATK and DEF.  However, if you imbue something with it, it gives a weapon 100
to ATK, DEF, and DUR.  You can only get one per play through.  In my opinion, it
isn't worth the trouble.  In the time it takes to get one of these rings, you'll
probably max out the stats of a weapon, making the bonus useless.

Keep in mind that no matter what happens, these battles can be re-challenged
again at any time.  If you go to the mine train area, you can challenge Lemmy
and his GB.

-------------------
|Boss - Lemmy     |
|3800 hp          |
|bow:      250dur |
|sword:    300dur |
|drops: ore #33(2)|
-------------------

Ore #28 sword has a special attack that breaks weapon DUR at the cost of 5 DUR.
Quite nice if you upgrade DUR enough on this weapon.  As a sword, it looks more
like a standard sword and less like a giant paddle with fancy carvings.  His GB
is annoying.  It has an electro-shock spell, a healing spell, and a stat
boosting spell.  The stat-booster is the worst of the 3 and makes it very
difficult to get Lemmy to block since he can withstand any number of hits and
still get a swipe or combo through to you.  When he has his sword out, strike
him and get him to block.  You'll take off more DUR this way than if he hits
you.

You can also battle a Brush head.  Go around the back of Lemmy's forge house
(the house with the gold stamp to the left of your forge house).

Either use DUR breaker or block until he's worn out.

Side quest:
Outside the shop in your home town, a woman will give you an ore #28 for a
switch combo item.

Cat hunt finale:
If you did all the cat finding side quests, go to the fishing area and talk to
the girl with a cat.  She'll give you an ore #36

Side quest:
Talk to the girl by the counter in the weapon shop.  she'll unlock characters
for every weapon you get to rank 9.

     - Swords:    Can use Remi
     - Axes:      Can use V.E.
     - Spears:    Can use Anise
     - Knuckles:  Can use Jade
     - Drills:    Can use Bostaf
     - Bows:      Can use Tier
     - Max out all forging ranks:  Can use Rob
     - Complete all formulas:  Voice Collection

Let's go to Tier's town.  Go to the purple circle south of town and pick the
second option.  When you get there, go up to get to the town, and find Tier in
the flower garden.  Talk to her for a match.

-------------------
|Boss - Tier      |
|3500 hp          |
|bow:      300dur |
|sword:    250dur |
|drops: ore #40(2)|
-------------------

Tier is a pain pure and simple.  If you have a DUR breaking weapon like an ore
#28 sword, don't go into this fight with less than 500 DUR.  She also has large
bombs, so you can't sit there and block unless you have a healing spell in GB
support.

OK, next stop is the penal colony.  Take the purple teleport circle and choose
the third option to go there.  By the teleport sword you'll find our old friend
Tram.  Let's challenge him!

Clear dungeon (finale):
If you cleared the obstacles from all the dungeons in the game and got all the
clear dungeon rewards, talk to the old man to the left of the fence below the
teleporter.  He'll unlock one of the special battle modes in omake mode
(Dragon battle)

---------------------
|Boss - Tram        |
|3000 hp            |
|spear #35:  250dur |
|spear #39:  100dur |
|drops: ore #35,    |
|       ore #39     |
---------------------

DUR breaker and a high durability weapon make this battle simple (if you want
only one of the 2 ores.  Prepare an extra DUR breaker weapon if you want both
ores, because he will hurt you.

Finally, let's go back to the city (the 3rd town we visited).  Inside the forge
house, you can fight Jade.


The lotteries have some new stuff if you have the tickets for it
--------------------------------------
|Lottery                             |

|knuckle:    300dur |
|Drill:      250dur |
|drops: ore #39(2)  |
---------------------

Use DUR breaker if you have it.  Otherwise, strike him when his drill is out to
get him to block and strike his drill since it can do the most damage.  Make
sure you have plenty of high DUR weapons.

side quest:
If you hit all the bow targets, there will be a blue haired girl on the bell
tower waiting for you.  she'll give you a pair of blue glasses, a head band, a
red medal, a blue scroll, and a green scroll.

While here, you can also make these ores at the weapon shop

ore #9  - 5x ore #8
ore #12 - 1x ore #10 + 1x ore #11
ore #22 - 1x ore #8 + 1x ore #14 + 1x ore #20
ore #24 - 1x ore #22 + 1x ore #23
ore #32 - 1x ore #30 + 1x blue glasses



If you save and reset, you can go into the omake menu (last option I think).
Once there, press "R Left L Right Down B Up Select B B B Start".  if done right,
the game should freeze for a few seconds and/or you'll here a female voice say
something in Japanese.  This will unlock a bunch of extra stuff, including the
option to fight Murno.  Go to the ghost town and you'll find her and her dad
there.  Talk to her to face her.
[Submitted by Net_wanderer from GameFAQs]

---------------------
|Boss - Murno       |
|3200 hp            |
|sword:      300dur |
|Bow:        250dur |
|drops: ore #36(2)  |
---------------------

Have some high DUR weapons on hand (including a DUR breaking weapon).  When she
pulls out the sword, just block and heal when necessary.  Don't let your HP fall
below 1000 or else she might use a blue sleep bomb and then a high damage attack
to wake you.  Her bow heals DUR very slowly, so just make sure you keep bringing
it down in DUR.  Here is where you use your DUR breaker again.

When you're done with these guys and you have enough ores, we're going to move
on to the bonus dungeons.  To do this, go back to the ghost town by going to a
purple circle and going to the last option.  Then go up into the town, heal up
and go up from there.  Just keep following the teleporters until you reach the
entrance.

Heal at the blue triangle if you need to, and go up to the big circle
teleporter.  Use it and go down and to the right, into the door.  In the next
room, hit the platform buttons with your hammer and hit right 3 times to line up
the platform and cross.  hit the left panel with a sword and the right panel
with an axe to open the door.

On the ice patch, go up to the path opening and slide up, then left, then down,
then right, then up, then right, then down, then left, then down, then right,
and finally up.  Head right into the door at the top.

In this room, head up to the control buttons and hit up twice and then right
twice.  In the next room, slide up the path and heal at the triangle.  Then go
into the next room.

In here, hit the buttons down once, left 4 times, up once, right 5 times, down
once, and finally left 4 times.  At the door, use a spear on the left panel and
a bow on the right panel to open it.  Go inside, go up past where the dragon
battle was, and go up into that door to reach yet another platform puzzle.

For the first control group, hit up 5 times and hit right once.  Go up to the
next group and hit left once.  Hit the left panel with a knuckle weapon and the
right panel with a drill to open the door.

In this room are 2 ice patches on either side of you.  Go to the left side.
Align yourself by looking for a T-shaped tile and standing on a crack in the
left inside corner of the "T" tile and slide up to reach the door.  Go up to the
next room.

In this room, go down to the control buttons.  Hit left twice and down 3 times.
Go to the control button group on the bottom right and hit right 5 times, up
once, and right once.  Then head right and up to the door.  Hit the left panel
with a bow and the right panel with a drill.

In the next room are a bunch of ice paths.  I'll number them 1-5 starting from
the left.  Take path 3 to reach the door.  In here, take the left path to reach
the door.  You can also save here at the sword.

Now we're back at the place we fought the final boss, but the room is empty this
time!  Go to the right and take the door into the next room.  This was the place
you got teleported to after beating me.  Go down to the bottom and leave going
south south.

In here is another purple circle.  Hit it with your hammer so we don't have to
go through that castle again!  You should see a bunch of green teleporters.
these lead to new dungeons, but only one is active right now.  Got to the
flashing green teleporter to start bonus dungeon 1

He's slow but deadly.  Run under him in the opposite direction when he flies or
else he'll sit on you for tremendous damage.  Get some distance when he raises
his fist cause he'll make spikes shoot up from the floor.  Don't get too close
when attacking or he'll box your head for a few hundred HP.

Beat him and leave the dungeon.  Use a return stone.  Heal up and go south to a
purple circle and go back to the dungeon room (last option).  Now bonus dungeon

of a fire breath.

In the second room, take the top middle path to get a chest containing a love
letter.  Go to the left and you'll come across 2 paths leading to the weapon
panels needed to open one of the doors in the room.  The left-most path leads
to a knuckle panel and the second left most path leads to a bow panel.  Hit
them and go to the right to find the path to the open door.

In this room, you have a platform puzzle again.  Go to the buttons and hit right
3 times.  Cross over and go to the second group of buttons.  Hit left for times
and up once to cross over to the other side of the divider.  Go up to get a
med kit, an ore #29, and 1500b from the chests.  Go back to the other side of
the divider and go up into the door.

Go left under the divider to get a blue bomb in this room.  Go up to reach a
chest with a red star.  Then go back down and back out into the previous room.

Back here, go down to the control buttons and hit left once and up once to go
back across the divider.  Now go down into the room before this one.  You'll be
on the platform with those 2 doors you couldn't reach previously.  Go left into
the other door.  Now go up into the next room.

Go up until you reach a moving platform and 2 buttons.  Hit right twice and go
up.  Go to the next button set and hit left twice.  Go down and get the yellow
tag from the chest.  Go back and hit right twice.  go down to the first button

------------------------
|Boss - Shrine monkey  |

|drops: ore #35        |
------------------------

Not hard at all.  His only attack is his necklace which at this point can do
300-400 damage.  He's fairly slow, so just hit him.

Get the chest for a ticket key item, and leave this dungeon.  go back and
heal/repair, then go back to the portal room.  Bonus dungeon 3 is available now!

inflict sleep, so be careful!

#123 Orange blizzards - Drop green crystals for wind elemental properties

#124 Blue fighters - Drop green bombs.  Block their wind attacks!

#125 Red birds - drop a green tile item.  They love to run away, which makes
them less aggressive than most of the other things here.

#126 Blue Tengus - Also drop green tiles.

Go up to the second room.  Go up the ladder and find the boulder.  go around the
boulder and down the wind column by taking the upper path.  Puch the boulder up
to the upper path by taking the right ladder and getting underneath the boulder.
Go back down and to the left to get a chest with a gray bar inside.  Go back
around by taking the bottom wind column down.  Now go back up to the boulder and
push it into the top wind column to the left.  Go left from the scrape mark and
up to reach the next room.

Go up the wind columns until you can only go down one. Follow the columns and
ladders until you reach a point where you can either go up or down.  At this
point go up the wind column and go up to leave this room.

In this room, go up the ladder to the right of the wind column.  At the top,

Some monsters to look out for:

#129 gray pointy hat robot - drops pink stones for lightning elemental
properties.  Comes with #128 dark spirit, which are dangerous lightning
monsters.

#130 Blue drum guy - Drops batteries.  Comes with #132 blue electric
cavemen.

#131 Blue electric lion - Drops pinks stones for lightning elemental properties.
Can come with dark spirits and/or as a group of 2.

#132 Blue electric caveman - Drops red bombs.  His laser breath is deadly!

#133 purple skeleton - Drops light bulbs.  Hit them and run.  They come in 2s
and/or with blue electric cavemen. Once you single one of them out, hit it as it
raises it's sickle to interrupt his attack.

#134 Pink plug monster - Drops batteries.  Comes in groups of 2.  If
you have the AGI, jump over them and attack from the back.  They are slow.

Go up to the second room and take the teleporter at the far right.  From there,
go up and get a chest for an ore #31.  Go back down until you reach a
teleporter.  Take that back to the beginning where you'll end up in the middle
row of the second room.

Back here again, go all the way right this time and take the right-most
teleporter.  Go up and to the left avoiding the first teleporter you see.  In
the next room, you should reach a chest with gray glasses inside.  Take the
bottom teleporter.

In this room, go up and get the 2 chests for a switch key item, and a vacuum
tube.  Take the teleporter to the next room.

Here, just go up to the boss when ready.  Take the teleporter in case you missed
anything.  It will take you back to the chest with the ore #31 and from there,
you can go back to the second room.

When ready, you get to fight 3 monsters at once!

------------------------------
|Boss - Knights of the dead  |
|Captain           10000hp   |
|knight(2)         7000 hp   |
|drops: ore #38              |
------------------------------

Get to the sides of the screen and slash away.  Heal when necessary.  Their
spinning attack is almost unavoidable.

Get the chest for the ticket, and get out.  Let's go back for the final bonus
dungeon.

---------------------------------------------
|bonus dungeon 5:  Boss Castle              |
|Enemies:  None                             |
|Treasure:                                  |
|ores:                                      |
---------------------------------------------


Go up to the second room to face:
----------------------------------
|Boss - Mecha mage and Mecha mage|
|Mecha knight       13000hp      |
|Mecha Mage         11000hp      |
|drops:  1000b                   |
----------------------------------

The mage can be killed with weapons, while the knight can only be killed with a
GB.  Get the mage away from the knight before taking it out.  The knight has a
deadly axe swing what can take 1500-2000 of your HP.

Heal and repair, then go up to the next room to face:

------------------------------
|Boss - Mecha Guard          |
|25000hp                     |
|drops:                      |
------------------------------

Jump towards him and slash, then jump back.  Don't approach if he raises his
fists because he's casting his electric wall attack which does 5-7 hits at over
200 HP per hit if you get caught in it close to him.  If he raises his ball and
chain, run up to him and hit him a few times, then run back.  Around 12000 HP,
he changes form to his red form.  You can only hit him with your GB at this
point, so do so.

Go up to the next room to face:

------------------------------------
|Boss - angry god of dump trucks   |
|30000 hp                          |
|drops:   bomb                     |
------------------------------------

Same strategy as before.  All his attacks have juiced up damage potentials, but
are still slow.

Next up is:

-------------------------
|Boss - 4-eyed lionvark |
|35000 hp               |
|drops: red bomb        |
-------------------------

His fire breath is gigantic and deadly at over 400 HP per hit.  if you have a
good special attack (like sword #35's tornado attack), you can wipe the floor
with this guy.

Next is:

-------------------------------
|Boss - 2x ghost, head ghost  |
|Ghost:        10000hp        |
|head ghost:   16000hp        |
|drops: 3000b                 |
-------------------------------

These guys are not hard if your weapon has a good special attack, but they like
to turn invisible and sneak up on you.  Be careful!

Next is:

--------------------------
|Boss - 3x trolls        |
|blue:   10000hp         |
|red:    15000hp         |
|yellow: 12000hp         |
|drops:                  |
--------------------------

You NEED a good special attack on your weapon for this battle.  The blue guy
heals 10000hp, so kill it first.  They love to run around and mob you.  Try and
single them out by running around.

Next up:

-----------------------
|Boss - Giant bat     |
|38000 hp             |
|drops:  blue bomb    |
-----------------------

Summoning your GB to soften him up a bit is a good idea.  He's resistant to wind
attacks.  Use the same strategy as before.

Next is:

------------------------
|Boss - Giant red robot|
|40000 hp              |
|drops:  10000b        |
------------------------

He's easy until he drops under 10000 HP.  Get him to as close to 10000HP as
possible without going under it.  Then step back and use your GB's strongest
attacks, then just keep firing off special attacks and pray that you kill him
before the timer goes up!

Here's how I beat him:
Fight Tram and break his black spear for an ore #35.  Make a sword with it and
maybe upgrade the DUR on it.

Equip your GB's most powerful attack and get the robot down to as close to
10,000hp as possible without actually hitting 10,000 or going under 10,000.  Use
the GB's attack which should take off around 3,000hp.  Then use the special
attack of that sword on him which does around 1000hp per hit.  Just hit R and
block to produce the tornado attack.

Next up:


-------------------------
|Boss - Dark fire dragon|
|45000 hp               |
|drops:  ore #39        |
-------------------------

Wind attacks are best here.  Use the same strategy as the fire dragon.

And finally:

--------------------------
|Boss - Dark water dragon|
|55000 hp                |
|drops:  ore #40         |
--------------------------

Same strategy as the water dragon.  It's just gonna take longer and he can do
more damage.



IV. New game+

Before we start a new game+, go through your ores and forge any new weapons you
don't have yet.  Then imbue any combo items you haven't imbued yet.  Finally,
sell everything else except the weapons you want to keep.

You can only transfer over 6 weapons.  When you picked out your 6, go back to
your home town and go the fishing area.  At the top right corner you'll find a
guy who will store your 6 weapons.  Choose the first option and pick a line to
deposit a weapon.

Finally, save and reset the game.  Choose the top menu option to start a new
game+, then select your save file

A good tip if you want to carry over any ores, accessories, items, or
materials:  Get your rank up to 9 on a weapon type of your choice, and make a
new weapon of that type.  Imbue it with whatever you want to carry over (you
have 3 slots per weapon).  When you start a New Game+ and get your stuff back,
take out your imbued weapon and get it's TEC up to 255 by running around an
easy dungeon and killing stuff.  Go back to the forge and back to the imbuement
option.  Pick the second option to remove your imbued stuff.  If all goes well,
you will get your imbued items back.

What gets transferred over:

Weapon Secrets
Special Attack List
Effect List
Beastiary

Money
Weapon Ranks
Mini Game Data
Fishing Points
Weapons kept by that guy at the fishing hole

You'll have to experiment with the numbers yourself.  They are the XY
coordinates of your character sprite on the map (XY coordinates, think back to
high school math and graphing).  It's easier to use with an emulator because you
can see your relative position in the memory viewer.  Otherwise, just plug in
numbers until you get somewhere, then increment until you are at a point you
want (i.e. behind that @#$! wind stream that I couldn't pass).

Weapons are in order by when you obtain their blanks.  Add 1C to each address
to get addresses for the next weapon, or figure out which slot you want and
use the formula ((n-1)*1C) and add that to the addresses for weapon 1.

Max value for all stats (except TEC) is 7FFF though it only displays upto 999
and in some places 9999.  Anything higher than that gives you negative stats
starting at -9999 or -999 depending on display.  It counts upward from there.
Whether the game actually counts stats that high remains to be seen

This is gonna be confusing to many of you, but this is a trick I've only seen in
class.  I think the process is called "bit parity".  In order to represent
negative numbers in binary, the range of values can be split in half, with the
first half being read as positive and the second half read as negative.

Normally, 0000-FFFF is counted as 0 - 65,535 respectively.  In this game,
0000-FFFF is counted as 0 - -1.  Weird huh?  Well now where are all the positive
numbers?  Well, 0-7FFF is counted as 0-32,767 and 8000-FFFF is counted as
-32,767 - -1 and when you add 1 to FFFF it rolls back to 0000 which counts as 0.

The advantage is you can do math with negative numbers in this manner without
doing any fancy formulas to convert your values every time you change from
negative to positive and visa versa.  Putting in special special formulas would
require more memory and processing instructions to be run, and if they aren't
run properly, the game could become confused and crash.  The downside is you
sacrifice half your value range, but that's fine if your game can only display
upto 4 digits when reading that address.

Upon further research, I found that the maximum values cap at 999 anyway (03E7
or 3E7 in hexadecimal).  Hence why my max stats for all weapons set stats to
999.

The first 4 codes determine the species of the monster in slots 1-4.  You
can fight upto 4 monsters at a time.  The last code "Always 4 Enemy
Encounter" makes it so you alwys run into 4 enemies durring a random
battle.

The Following are from ForteGSOmega from www.cmgsccc.com

Play as... Mod (kind of..)
830008C0 XXXX
*It's much more complicated this time, the only area where the code really
works is the omake mode. Unlock the thing where you can fight all the bosses
again by beating the game, After killing the first boss but before fighting
the second, activate the code and set a value, you'll be that person/monster
in the next battle. I'm trying to find a way around this..

Note from dragonexo:
start with:830008C0 XXXX
play as: the heroin:0001
the girl with red hair:0002
the guy with the green hair and yellow suit:0003
the guy with the sulver blue/silver hair(the rival i think):0005
the guy with dark-blue hair:0007
the archer girl (small, glasses):0009

the girl with purple hair who can summon the dragon:0010
the hero:0014
the guy with closed eyes:0016
one of the thugs with purple hats you fight near the end of the game:0018
the creepy guy who probably think's he's a girl:0025
the final boss:0028
closed eyes guy:0031
drunk looking guy with afro and red nose:0033

there is probably a hell of a lot more. You just try, I'll figure more out

NOTE: they have the exact same characteristic as the real guys, you can still
choose their weapons and all, but dont put them with weapons they don't like,
you'll find out soon why, don't worry, no game freeze, but dont try to summon
with characters who can't, some of them can't use the spells and will make a
weird attack.

note 2, everything after 38 is a blackout of the screen, i didnm't post some
numbers because they are the same result of characters.

VII. FAQ

Q: Can I use your FAQ on my site?
A: Only if you credit both me and GameFAQs, AND you present it in an unaltered
   format.

Q: You got the plot all wrong!
A: I can't read Japanese.  This FAQ is just so you can play the game and get
   through it.

Q: Can I submit corrections and tips anyway?
A: You can submit these things, but you have to post a re-write of the
   section(s) you are correcting.

Q: Where can I submitt this stuff?
A: Post it on the message board at gameFAQs.com

Q: Your FAQ seems perfect.  What other information are you looking for?
A: I'd like a translation of the special attacks and effects lists, as well as
   what each one does in battle.

Q: Are you single?
A: I'm male.  Age: 2,703 years (give or take a few decades).  I enjoy long walks
   in the woods, rock climbing, and commanding legions of eternally cursed souls
   to do my bidding.  Potential dates must have a good life insurance policy,
   and be able to handle sharp objects.  Like to play video games a plus!

Q: Why don't you post an e-mail address?
A: 1) Spammers fish e-mails out of text files.  This happened to my hotmail
      account which I can no longer use
   2) I don't plan to do many updates or corrections to this guide
