= Part One:  The Introduction =
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

     Greetings, and welcome to my FAQ for Phantasy Star II, for the
Sega Genesis.  The goal of this guide is to provide as much information
as possible on this extraordinary RPG, in hopes to help those who are
hopelessly stuck, need a few pieces of advice, or want to explore
everything the game has to offer.  Enjoy!
                                                --Dalez



               -/\/\/\-> Background on Phantasy Star II <-/\/\/\-

     The Phantasy Star series (for those of you who don't know) is likely
Sega's greatest and most popular RPG series.  Based in a futuristic world
-- the Algo Solar System, the PS games had a history of being large, and
more difficult than your average RPG.  This is mostly due to the above
average difficulty of the random encounters, and the ridiculous complexity
of the dungeons.  The PS series also had a notoriety of carrying around
some of the biggest price tags in console game history (if I remember right,
PS2 was around $70 when it first came out in 1989).  Released in 1989, PS2
was extremely ahead of its time, though the game is only 6 megabits in size,
there are two planets to explore with a multitude of dungeons, items, and
monsters... by far the largest RPG of its time.  Though generally more
overlooked than the other "big two" RPG series (i.e  Dragon Quest and Final
Fantasy), Phantasy Star remains an extraordinary series that is very
rewarding once you get into it.



                           -/\/\/\->  Story <-/\/\/\-

     The events in Phantasy Star II take place approximately 1,000 years
after Alis and her party defeated the evil Lassic (i.e  the first Phantasy
Star game).  You play as Rolf, an agent in Paseo (the capital city of the
planet Motavia), who has been assigned by the governor to investigate a
recent accident that occured at the Bio-Systems Lab, that has caused
monsters (known as "Biohazards"), to appear all over Mota.  Eventually he
and the other companions you meet throughout the adventure will be drawn
into a grand struggle to save the world.



               -/\/\/\->  A few tips before you begin <-/\/\/\-

     * As a standard rule in just about all RPGs, you should (A.) talk to
everyone you meet, and (B.) Save your game every chance you get.  Most of
the people of Motavia have information to pass along, but you'll have to
speak with them to obtain it!  And though it may seem obvious, you should
Save your game frequently.  As I said before, PS2 is a bit on the difficult
side, and you don't want to have to repeat something you've already worked
hard to accomplish.  Later in the game you may obtain an item that lets
you Save your adventure anywhere, so make use of it... frequently!

     * As another standard rule in most RPGs, building levels is very
important, especially in PSII.  By fighting monsters, you will gain
Experience Points and Meseta (money).  Once you obtain enough EXP, you will
gain a level, and your statistics such as HP, strength, and defense will
increase.  In addition, you will need the Meseta you obtain from battles to
purchase better equipment which will be essential to your survival, as well
as items and medicine to keep you in good condition.  Therefore, you should
try to fight as many battles as possible... use the 'Run' command sparingly,
in case you are hurt bad and need to escape, or are truly in a hurry (though
most of the time, running from the enemy proves to be a bit tough).

     * You should try to carry around as much medicine as you can on your
trips through the dungeons.  Most dungeons are quite large, and you may need
to save your TP for tougher battles rather than for healing.  By using
medicine, you can heal yourself while at the same time conserving your TP.

     * Only the people currently in your party gain EXP from battles.  The
others will stay at Rolf's house until you need them, but they won't gain
EXP.  Thus, it is important to use each of your characters as they are better
suited for different situations.  If you let one character sit at Rolf's house
forever, they won't get any stronger, and thus will become useless (or very
very weak) until you build their levels.  Though you can go through the game
using the same party, you'll soon find your options with your other characters
grow very limited.  It's really a matter of preference, but I recommend at
least building up each character to a reasonable level.

     * Some items have distinct effects when used in battle.  Some may cast
a technique at an enemy, while others may heal your party.  It is advantageous
to make use of these items during battle.  It may be a good idea to have a
weaker party member use these items to either harm the enemy or heal your
allies, rather than attacking.  This will also help you save TP, and you can
use the item as many times as you want, though they can only be used in battle.
Take advantage!

     * There are a wide variety of techniques that each of the characters may
learn, though the effects of some are less obvious than others.  Some techniques
that paralyze, silence, or put the enemy to sleep may seem useless at first,
but during a particular battle these may be your most powerful weapons.  Thus,
it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with your techniques and know which
situations in which to use them!

     * Most of the equipment in the towns in PSII is pretty expensive, and if
you want to buy it all, you'll have to spend LOTS of time building up meseta.
I recommend only buying equipment for the characters that you are planning on
using for the current task, as it takes quite a long time to buy the best
equipment for _all_ characters.  For the sake of making this guide, I spent
time doing that, but this doesn't mean you have to.  This is one reason why
my levels are probably higher than most people's.



     Now... on to the walkthrough!



-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
= Part Two:  The Walkthrough -
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

     In this section, I will attempt to guide you through the game one step at
a time, from start to finish.  If you'd rather figure things out of yourself,
I suggest you play through the game by yourself first if you haven't already,
resorting to the walkthrough only when you get stuck.  If you've finished the
game already or want to explore everything the game has to offer, then by all
means use this guide to its full extent.  That's what it's here for!  =)

     *NOTE*  The instruction manual that came with the game also contains a
walkthrough of the game, complete with maps for all the dungeons.  However, if
you are borrowing the game from a friend, lost the manual, or are using an
emulator (tsk tsk :P), chances are good you don't have access to it, but that's
probably why you are reading this file in the first place.

     *ANOTHER NOTE*  A complete set of maps for Phantasy Star 2 can also be
found on the internet, currently they can be found at http://www.phantasy-star.net.
These are EXTREMELY helpful due to the complexity of the dungeons, and these may
prove to be quite useful to you.  Though I will still provide directions though
the dungeons, again, these may prove useful.

     *ONE LAST NOTE*  You will be able to rename the majority of the companions
that join you, including Rolf.  For the sake of uniformity, I'll refer to each
character by their default name.



                      -/\/\/\-> Controlling Yourself <-/\/\/\-

     Before playing, it's probably a good idea to know how to work the controls.
Though it isn't really all that difficult...

    Controls:  Use the Control Pad to move around in the four cardinal directions.
Use the A button to speak to people or open chests.  The B button serves as your
'Cancel' button to exit menus or shops.  The C button is your 'accept' button,
use it to select menu items or bring up the menu itself.

    The Menu:  The Menu consists of five items.
      Item -->  Shows the inventory of each character.  Each character can carry
       up to 16 items with them.  You can also manipulate your characters' items..
       meaning USE them, GIVE them to other characters, or DROP unwanted (or
       un-needed) items.
      State -->  Brings up another small menu....
        State -->  A "quick-status" display of sorts, STATE shows the Name, Level,
         and HP/TP of your current party members.
        Order -->  Allows you to change the formation of your party.
      Tech -->  Brings up a list of the field techniques that each character knows.
       Battle techniques aren't shown here.  You can simply view them, or you can
       use one by moving the cursor next to it and pressing the C button.
      Strength -->  This command brings up a detailed status display of the
       character, which shows all aspects of their progress, such as Level, EXP,
       HP/TP, Strength, Defense, etc.  It also shows you a list of the battle and
       field techniques the character knows, and the items he or she currently has
       equipped.
      Equip -->  This command manages your equipment... you can wear or remove
       equipment from your characters.  Remember, just possessing weapons and armor
       won't help you a bit... you'll have to equip them first!  Note that not all
       characters can use all weapons and armor... most characters are quite limited
       as to the stuff they are allowed to equip.

    Battle:  Once battle starts, you will have two options to choose from.
      Fight -->  Starts combat.  Each character will attack with the option you have
       chose for them.  Once the round of combat is over, the next round of combat
       will start immediately.  If you wish to issue new commands next round, press
       the B button before the current round of combat terminates.
      Strategy -->  Brings up another menu...
        Order -->  Allows you to set up what you want each character to do.  You
         may choose to have them attack a particular enemy (instead of choosing one
         at random), use a technique, use an item, or defend (increases defense for
         the combat round but the character won't be able to do anything else).
        Run -->  With this command you will try to escape from the encounter.  It
         won't always work (in fact, a lot of the time it won't work), but it is
         useful if you are hurt bad and need to get back to a town quickly.

     And that's about it!  Now, on with the walkthrough!



                       -/\/\/\-> The Journey Begins <-/\/\/\-

     The opening sequence consists of a short monologue in which Rolf explains
a strange and recurring nightmare he has been having.  A young girl (resembling
Alis from Phantasy Star I?) is battling against a demon.  Though Rolf is
nearby, he cannot move or speak and he can only watch as the demon continues to
strike at the girl.  However, just before the monster issues its death blow, Rolf
awakens.

     After the sequence, Rolf will automatically travel to the Central Tower and
meet with the governor.  The governor will explain about an accident that
recently occured at the Bio-Systems Lab, and issues Rolf with the assignment of
investigating this accident, and returning with the Recorder, which might be able
to explain the cause of the accident.  As Rolf goes back home to prepare for his
journey, his girlfriend Nei insists on going with him.  Nei is a hybrid of a 
human and a bio-hazard who mysteriously appeared about seven months ago.  Nei
is adamant on going with Rolf, so he reluctantly decides to take her with him.
You can now wander around and explore the capital city of Paseo.

CITY OF PASEO

  ITEM SHOP

  Monomate              20
  Dimate                60
  Antidote              10
  Telepipe              130
  Escapipe              70

  WEAPON SHOP

  Knife                 100
  Dagger                200
  Scalpel               180
  Steel Bar             80
  Bow Gun               300
  Sonic Gun             640

  ARMOR SHOP

  Headgear              120
  Carbonsuit            128
  Carbonvest            120
  Fibercoat             300
  Carbon Shield         540
  Carbon Emel           420

     Since Rolf starts out with only 200 Meseta, it's obvious you won't be able
to purchase everything just yet.  Start out by buying 2 Steel Bars for Nei, and
don't forget to equip them!  Then explore Paseo and speak with its inhabitants.
The Bio-Systems Lab is to the west, and to get through we'll have to cross
through the North Tunnel, but currently here is a robber named Darum plaguing
the tunnel.  We'll have to figure out a way to get rid of him before we can
cross.  For now, our target is Arima, the town nearest to Paseo.  But first,
head out of Paseo, and walk around in the vicinity fighting monsters.  Since
Rolf and Nei start out at level 1 (i.e very weak), the monsters around here
will be tough enough for the time being.  Hang around and fight monsters for a
while, gaining EXP and Meseta, and be sure to go back to the Hospital in Paseo
when your HP/TP start running low.  If Rolf or Nei gets killed you'll have to
visit the Clone Lab to bring them back to life.

     I recommend fighting monsters around Paseo until Rolf's level reaches 4
(since Nei levels roughly twice as fast as Rolf, she will probably be around
level 7 or so by this time... though Nei levels fast, her levels don't affect
her as much).  By this time you should have acquired enough Meseta to purchase
the rest of the needed equipment from Paseo... another Knife for Rolf, and a
Headgear and Fibercoat for Rolf as well.  Shields aren't really all that useful
in PS2, as the other hand is better suited for an additional weapon... or
sometimes you may need both hands free to wield a sword or other powerful weapon.
Again, it's a matter of preference.... if you'd rather have the extra defense
instead of another Knife (even though defense doesn't seem to have all that
great of an effect in this game), you may want to save up for a Carbon Shield.

     Once you're ready to proceed, our first stop is the town of Arima, which
is a short ways to the northeast of Paseo.  To get there, first walk through
the tunnel north of Paseo, then continue north across the bridge.  To the west
you'll see the North Tunnel where the robber Darum is hanging out... you won't
be able to go through there just yet.  Instead, walk around the trees and cross
another bridge, and soon you'll reach Arima.

TOWN OF ARIMA

  WEAPON SHOP

  Dagger              200
  Steel Bar           80
  Sword               1200
  Ceramic Knife       2800
  Sonic Gun           640
  Shotgun             800

     Arima is in pretty bad shape, as you'll see as you walk around the town.
A group of villains (referred to as the "scoundrels") have blown up most of the
houses and killed off all the men, so the only people left are women, children,
and the elderly.  You'll also learn that the "scoundrels" have a hideout in a
building known as Shure, to the northeast of Arima.  Also, you'll learn a bit
about Darum... before Arima was attacked he lived happily with his daughter Teim,
yet when the "scoundrels" attacked, Teim was kidnapped and Darum was forced to
turn to robbery to pay the ransom.  It's apparent that in order to cross the
North Tunnel we'll have to get rid of the villians, rescue Teim, and bring her
back safely to Darum.

     After exploring the town, head back to Paseo.  All the companions who join
you throughout the course of the game will show up at Rolf's house after you
complete a certain event (usually, once you reach a new town).  Therefore,
whenever you reach a new town, it's a good idea to go back to Rolf's house and
check for new companions.  Although you can use the Teleport Machine to get back
to Paseo quickly, it costs 60 Meseta and you have better things to do with the
money at this point.  Besides, you need the EXP anyway.  :P

     Back at Rolf's house you will meet your first companion, Rudolf, the Hunter.
Rudolf (or Rudo for short) is a professional hunter who is VERY strong and can
use big guns with ease, though is incapable of using any techniques.  Still, he
will prove to be a very valuable party member throughout the game.  After the
introduction, don't forget to add Rudo to your party by selecting 'Reorganize',
then add Rudo to the roster.  Now we have three fighters... much better, eh?  :)

     *NOTE*  In addition to which members you currently have in your party, your
party order is also important.  Members near the front of the row will be more
likely to sustain attack, while members near the back will be less likely to be
attacked.  Therefore, it's a good idea to place members with HP and Defense (such
as Rudo) at the front of the party.  I recommend changing your party order to
Rudo, Rolf, then Nei.

     Now Rudo is in our party, but (like all companions) he starts at level 1,
so he could stand to gain some EXP.  Head back to Arima, then cross the bridge
to the east to reach some slightly tougher monsters.  You'll want to stick around
in this area and fight more monsters for a while, both to gain EXP and Meseta to
buy some of the new equipment available in Arima.  The only enemy you will really
need to watch out for is the Armorant.  They usually come in groups of 3, and are
quite tough, having 23 HP and capable of dealing 5-6 HP damage per attack, and
also capable of paralyzing a character.  It would be a good idea to have Rolf
use Foi (at level 5 Rolf will learn Gifoi and Tsu, but each takes up 6 TP compared
to 2 TP from Foi, and each deals only about twice as much damage) against them,
to be on the safe side.  Each Armorant gives 26 EXP and 34 Meseta, so these will
help you gain levels and meseta fast!

     Once Rolf reaches level 7, you should have enough Meseta to head back to
Arima and buy a Sword for Rolf, and a new weapon for Rudo.  Here is another
matter of preference... you may choose to either buy two Sonic Guns for Rudo,
or one Shotgun.  The two Sonic Guns will do more combined damage than the Shotgun,
but the Shotgun is capable of hitting more than one enemy in a monster group 
(the Shotgun will typically hit all enemies to the right of the one that is
shot.  However, the damage will be spread out amongst the enemies... each one
won't take full force from the shot).  Note that the Sword takes up two hands,
so you'll have to sacrifice your shield if you have one equipped.  If you really
want the shield, you may want to keep your two knives (the Ceramic Knives are
too darn expensive to bother with right now) instead.  I got a Sword for Rolf
and two Sonic Guns for Rudo.

     Then, you should also go back to Paseo both to sell off your old equipment,
and stock up on medicine (since Arima conveniently lacks a Tool Shop).  I
recommend buying as many Dimates as you can afford, as even the first dungeon
will prove to be quite a bit difficult!  I also recommend buying an Escapipe...
though by the time you Rolf reaches level 7 he will have techniques to both
escape dungeons and teleport back to town (basically the functions of the
Escapipe and Telepipe), it's good to have at least one on hand in case you
use up all of Rolf's TP.  If you are stuck in a dungeon and hurting, and Rolf
runs out of TP, it may save your life!

     Once you're ready, our next target is the abandoned building known as
Shure, located to the northeast of Arima.  Shure is the hideout of the
"scoundrels", so we may be able to find some information about Darum's
daughter there.  To get there, head east of Arima, and cross the bridge.
Then walk north and east around the trees, and you'll find Shure at
the northern end of the peninsula.



                            -/\/\/\-> Darum <-/\/\/\-

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Shure                                                             |
|My Level:  Rolf L7, Rudo L6, Nei L13                              |
|Items:  Monomate, 390 Meseta, Dynamite x2, Dimate, Headgear,      |

*------------------------------------------------------------------*

     As I said before, for a first dungeon Shure is rather difficult.  It
consists of four medium-sized floors, and the monsters on the top floors
are a bit more difficult than the ones we've fought previously.  Keep those
Dimates ready.  :)

     The first floor is rather simple.  From the entrance, walk to the
left, around the outside of the building.  This path leads all the way
around, so continue to follow it until you reach the northeast corner of
the first floor.  You'll see boxes in each of the four corners as you make
your way around... ignore those for now, as they are accessed from the floor
above.  Once you reach the east side of the first floor, the path will cut
to the left, leading towards the center of the floor.  Go left, but be sure
to grab the box to the south, which contains 40 Meseta.  Then head for the
center, and step on the chute to go up to the second floor.

     On the second floor, walk south along the narrow passage until you
reach an open area.  Like the first floor, the second floor consists of four
distinct 'corners' in which there is one chute leading up and one chute
leading down.  The four chests on the first floor are locked, so they are
inaccessible until we can find a key.  For now, head the south-west corner,
and pick up the box to obtain another Dimate.  Now take the chute leading
up to the third floor.  Walk right a little ways and you'll see an opening
to the north.  Go north through this opening and walk straight until you
reach another box.  Open it to obtain a Headgear.  Now go back and take
the chute back down to floor two.

     Exit the south-west corner, and now head for the north-west corner,
then continue right along the north edge of the building to reach the
north-east corner.  Take the chute leading up to go back up to floor three,
Walk to the east then south along the passage, and soon you'll reach a large
pit that exists in the center of the floor.  Try not to fall down into it,
if you do it will dump you back down to the floor below, and you'll have to
make your way all the way back up here.  :(

     Before crossing the pit, walk south along it's edge and you'll find
a box containing 200 Meseta down in a little nook at the bottom.  Take this,
then go back to the narrow bridge leading across the pit.  After crossing,
you'll end up along the north wall.  Walk east along the passage and it will
lead you down to the south-east corner of this floor.  Nearby is the chute
leading up to the top floor... this is where you want to go.

     On the top floor, you'll notice a couple of bodies lying around... these
are the bodies of the "scoundrels"!  The bio-hazards that invaded the hideout
probably killed them.  One of the bodies has the key that we are looking for,
and as you probably guessed, it's the most difficult to get to.  From the
chute leading back down, walk to the north up against the wall, then head
due west to find a box containing a Sil Ribbon... a better piece of head
protection for Nei that should be equipped immediately.  Make your way back
to the chute again, and you'll see a body a bit to the west and south.

     From this body, walk a few steps south, then west along this _long_ 
passage that winds through the entire west section of the floor.  At the end
of the passage, you'll finally reach the dead body that contains the Small
Key, as well as a Letter.  The Letter is a ransom note from the "scoundrels"
to Darum, stating that Teim has been locked away in Nido Tower, and that
Darum must pay a ransom of 50,000 Meseta to get her back.  Nido Tower is
a building to the southeast of Shure, but the entrance is blocked, so we'll
need something to get in.  In Arima you learned that the "scoundrels" used
dynamite to blow up the houses, and they still probably have a few sticks
left.  Perhaps in the locked chests...?

     At this point you have a choice.  You can either walk back down to the
second floor, or escape the dungeon, go back to town and regroup, then head 
back for a second trip.  The choice is up to you... the safer alternative
would obviously be to escape and head back to town and rest, but if you are
in good condition and have enough Dimates left, you may want to take the
walk instead just for the sake of gaining EXP and Meseta from the battles.
Whichever you choose, our target is back down to the second floor.

     As you know, each of the four corners of the bottom floor contains a
chest.  Obviously, to get to them, you'll need to head for the respective
corner on the second floor and take the chute leading down.  In the
north-east corner you'll find 150 Meseta, in the north-west corner a
Monomate can be found, and in the south-west and south-east corners there
are boxes containing a stick of Dynamite each.  Now we can blast our way
into Nido Tower and rescue Teim!

     Now we're done here, so use Rolf's handy Hinas technique to escape
quickly, and head back to Arima to heal up.  Now that we know where Teim
is located, we can go and attempt a rescue.  Nido Tower, where Teim is
being held, is located further from Shure along the same path.  To get
there, head for Shure, then continue east and around the trees, then make
south and cross the bridge.  You'll find Nido Tower to the south and west.

     Before actually going through the tower, it would be a good idea to
hang around just inside the entrance and fight some of the tougher monsters
in here for EXP and Meseta.  Chances are you still don't have enough money
to purchase a Ceramic Knife from Arima (let alone two), so now would be a
good time to do so.  

     I recommend hanging around here and fighting monsters until you do
have enough meseta to purchase two Ceramic Knives from the weapon shop.
It will take a little while, but considering the high attack power of each
of the knives, it's definitely worth it.  Rudo can also use them, so (as
crazy as it sounds) I bought two for him as well.  It's not necessary, but
since they are MUCH more powerful than either the Sonic Guns or the
Shotgun, it will make your journey a lot easier.  It will also take a LOT
of fighting to gather that much meseta.  If you have the patience, then by
all means do it!

     After making all your purchases, be sure to head back to Paseo to sell
off your old equipment, and also stock up on a few more Dimates if you feel
it's necessary.  Now, let's go rescue Teim!

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Tower of Nido                                                     |
|My Level:  Rolf L10, Rudo L9, Nei L18                             |
|Items:  Dimate, 180 Meseta, Trimate, Teim                         |   
|Monsters:  Waspy, Buzzer, Armorant, Spinner, Pulser, Carrier,     |
|           Toader, Spitkill, Poisoner, Vortex, Locust, Leecher,   |
|           Amoeba, Froggy
*------------------------------------------------------------------*

     If you haven't done so already, first use a stick of Dynamite to blow
up the door that is barring the entrance to the Tower.  Once that is out of
the way you can continue out onto the actual floor.  The Nido Tower consists
of three floors, though each floor is considerably larger than those at Shure,
so you'll still be taking a rather long trip.

     After getting past the door, walk to the right until you hit the
right-hand edge of the floor.  Walk north a little ways and take the first
path leading to the left.  After walking a little ways more you'll see a chute
leading up.  Take it up to floor two, then walk due north for a box that
contains 100 Meseta.  Go back down to the chute, then walk due east until you
hit the wall.  To the south you'll see another chute leading up.  Use it to
get to the top floor, then go north until you hit the north-east corner, then
west to reach a box containing a Trimate.

     Once you've gotten the Trimate, retrace your steps back down to the bottom
floor.  Then walk west from the chute until you hit the wall, then north until
you hit another wall.  To the northeast is another chute leading up... take
this one back up to the second floor.  From the chute, walk down, west a few
steps, then down again.  Follow this path and soon you'll reach an open area
with a box containing 20 Meseta.  Take it, then walk back up to the open area
near the chute.  Walk west along the north edge of the floor, but as you do
look for a Dimate in a nook to the south.  Make your way to the northwest
corner of this floor, where there are two chutes... one leading up and the
other leading down.

     First take the one leading up to floor three, then take a few steps east,
then south along the corridor to reach a box containing 60 more Meseta.  Take
it, then head back down the chute to the second floor once again.  Now use the
other chute to go back down to the first floor, and make your way to the right.
Take the right-hand path leading to the south and you'll reach another chute
leading back up.  Take this one back up to floor two, then follow along the
corridor and take the next chute back up to floor three.  Walk south along
the west edge of the floor and make your way to the center of the floor, where
Teim is waiting.  Rolf shows her the letter, and Teim is shaken by the fact
that her father turned to crime for her sake.  She begs Rolf to take her to
her father, but since many people have come to hate Darum (and his daughter
would be an easy target!), Rolf puts a veil over her head to conceal her
identity.  Teim then joins your party, as an item (poor Teim!  :P).

     Now we're done here, so escape and head back to town and rest.  Then,
when you're ready, head for the North Tunnel to the north of Paseo.  As you
enter, Teim rushes up to meet her father, but as the veil is still over her
head, her father doesn't recognize her!  Darum demands that Teim turn over
all her money or she will be killed.  Teim objects, and Darum, keeping his
promise, slays her with one swing of his sword.  She falls dead, realizing
just how much of a criminal her father has become.  As Darum realizes what
he has done, he turns the weapon on himself.  As both die, Rolf remarks on
the chaos that has been sweeping the world as of late.  Someone must stop
this... but who?



                     -/\/\/\-> The Bio-Systems Lab <-/\/\/\-

     Keeping this tragedy in mind, we must continue on to our target, the
Bio-Systems Lab.  Cross through the North Tunnel, then walk west and cross
the bridge.  Soon you will reach the town of Oputa.

     Before anything, now that we have reached a new town, head back to Rolf's
house in Paseo and you will be greeted by your next companion, Amy, the Doctor.
Obviously, being a doctor, Amy will learn the most powerful of healing
techniques, and will prove to be a very valuable asset to your party.  Add her
to your party, then head back to Oputa and gather information.  You'll learn
that the Bio-Systems Lab is nearby to the south, and that there is a piano
teacher in town.  First, like all companions, Amy starts off weak and
ill-equipped, so you'll want to fight monsters both to raise Amy's levels, and
gather Meseta for the new equipment in town.  I recommend buying...

Rolf:  Fibergear
Nei:  2 Ceramic Bars, Fibervest
Rudo:  Fibergear, 2 Ceramic Knives (if you haven't done so yet)
Amy:  Scalpel, Fibergear, Fibercape

     *NOTE*  The piano teacher in town (named Ustvestia... don't try to pronounce
that at home :P) lives in a very isolated house in the northwest corner of town.
He will teach one character the 'Musik' technique which is required to play the
piano (which will be necessary on two occasions in the game).  He will teach the
technique to you for 2000 Meseta for male characters, and 5000 Meseta for females
(that sexist little...).  You only need to teach this to one character, I
recommend to Rolf since he will be in your party for the duration of the game.
You don't have to do this now, but it would be a good idea to do so, before
you forget.  Besides, you could use the EXP anyway.  :P

     *ANOTHER NOTE*  If you ask to hear Ustvestia play, you can choose to have
him play any of the background musics in the game (call it a 'sound test' option
if you will).

     *ONE FINAL NOTE*  Amy can use the Silentshot that is sold in Oputa, but
I didn't find it to be all that useful... it Silences an enemy that is attacked
by it, but it doesn't do any outright damage.  I recommend sticking to the
Scalpels for Amy.

     Fight outside of Oputa until Amy reaches a reasonable level (high enough
at least so she won't get killed), then you may want to travel to the
Bio-Systems Lab south of Oputa to gain EXP and Meseta faster.  To get there,
travel south and west of Oputa, across several bridges.  You'll soon come to
a structure near a tunnel.  This is the Bio-Systems Lab!

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Bio-Systems Lab                                                   |
|My Level:  Rolf L11, Rudo L10, Nei L20, Amy L7                    |

*------------------------------------------------------------------*

     In order to enter the Bio-Systems Lab, you will need to use a stick of
Dynamite as you did at Nido Tower.  Blast the pesky door out of the way in
order to gain access to the actual lab.  It consists of three floors and a
basement.  The basement contains the Recorder we are commissoned to obtain,
but in order to reach the basement, we'll first have to climb to the top
floor of the Lab.

     From the entrance, walk north and you will reach a large circular room
with a chute leading up near the north, and exits to the west and east.  The
chute and east exit lead to dead-ends, so take the west exit from this room
and follow the corridor all the way around until hit the north end of the
floor.  Here you'll see another chute leading up... take it up to the second
floor.  Then make your way to the south (don't fall down into the pits!), and
open the box to find an Antidote.  You'll see a chute leading down here, but
it just leads a dead-end back down on the first floor.  Instead, walk south
past the chute and follow the corridor to the west.

     Once you reach the open area on the west side of the second floor, walk
south to find a box containing a much-useful Star Mist in a little nook.
Star Mist are extremely useful items which restore the HP of all party members.
They are quite rare, so it's best to save them for dire situations!  After
obtaining it, ignore the nearby chute, and instead go back north and continue
your way around the west edge of the floor.  Continue to follow the corridor
down, around the south side of the floor, and up the east side.  Along the
way, you'll find another box containing a Scalpel.  Grab it, then continue
your way around the corridor and you'll end up at a chute leading down back at
the north side of the floor (basically we just went in one big loop around
the floor!)  Take this chute down to the first floor.

     Back down on the bottom floor, walk east to reach the east side of the
floor, then make your way through the glass containers (just walk along the
outside wall) to reach another chute leading back up in the bottom-left corner.
Take this one back up to floor two, then walk north-east along the corridor
to reach another chute leading up to the top floor.  Take it up to the top
floor, then walk a few steps west, then head south.  Follow this corridor
south, and around until you reach the south wing of the floor.  At the end of
the path you'll find another stick of Dynamite (the last one in the game),
which you will be needing shortly.  Make sure you get this, then head back
to the chute.

     Now take the path leading to the west (in the upper-left corner, near
the chute) and follow it all the way around, back down to the south wing.
Eventually you'll come to a barred door in which you will need to use your
handy-dandy stick of Dynamite to blow up.  However, once you enter the
blocked room, the only thing you'll find is a pit.  What's this?  Well, only
one way to find out... hold your nose and jump!!

     Once you jump into the pit you will fall _all_ the way down through the
Lab, and land (more or less) in the center of the basement.

     *NOTE*  The orange spots on the floor all over the basement are 'damage
zones'.  Whenever you step onto a damage zone, you'll take one HP of damage.
The game is cruel enough to stick many of these directly in your path around
here, with no way to avoid them (yeech... how could people work in these
conditions?).  Hope you have some medicine left.  =/

     *ANOTHER NOTE*  Now that you're in the basement, there is no way to get
back up to the other floors of the Lab other than escaping using an Escapipe
(or the Hinas technique).  However, if you're out of Escapipes (and Rolf is
out of TP), you're not completely screwed... there is a stairway leading up
in the southwest corner of the basement which leads up to an exit to the
outside on ground level.  This is your "emergency exit".

     Now we're in the basement, so let's find that recorder!  Again, you
start in the middle of the basement, so make your way out of the little area
you start in, then head for the south part of the basement.  Like the rest
of the floors in the Lab (and the ones in Shure), there are four distinct
'corners' to the floor.  The southwest corner houses a box containing an
Antidote, as well as the emergency exit I noted before.  The southeast
corner holds a box containing a Poisonshot, which should be equipped on Amy.
The northwest corner holds yet another box containing a Trimate, and finally,
the northeast corner holds a huge control panel that, when searched, reveals
the Recorder... the item we have been looking for!

     Once the Recorder is in your hands, exit this horrid place, then head
back to town for a quick rest.  Now, go back to the Central Tower in Paseo
and get the Recorder to the Governor!  After a quick analysis of the data,
you'll go to the library to check the results.  The accident at the Lab
resulted from a massive energy over-load being poured into the system all
at once.  As a result, the creatures being raised at the Lab evolved into
the Biohazards, who then spread over the world, throwing Mota's natural
eco-system out of order.

     The librarian will also show you a few graphs... after the time of the
accident, the energy being consumed by the Lab sky-rocketed up to extremely
high levels.  Consequently, the overall temperature of Mota also sky-rocketed,
and the rainfall plummetted to dangerously low levels.  The energy that is
supposed to be used to run Climatrol (a building which controls the climate
of the planet) is now being sucked away by the Bio-Systems Lab, causing the
abnormal changes in temperature.  She also makes one last note that the
Bio-hazards could actually be a terrorist attack by someone... in any case,
it is essential to find out why the energy from Climatrol leaked to the
Bio-Systems Lab.  The librarian then gives you the Key Tube, which can open
the door in the tunnel near the Lab.  Our next mission is to investigate
Climatrol!



                   -/\/\/\->  The Search for Climatrol <-/\/\/\-

     After receiving the briefing for your new mission, head back to Rolf's
house and you will be greeted by Hugh, the biologist.  After a quick
introduction he will join your party.  Hugh, probably the most over-looked
character in the game, is the leading expert on plants and animals (and
Bio-hazards), and thus learns many techniques that effect them in various
ways, but his attacking strength is rather low.  When built up to a higher
level, Hugh learns many powerful techniques that will prove to be effective
against bio-monsters!

     Since you can only have up to four members in your party at one time,
if you want to bring Hugh along you'll have to leave someone else behind.
Since Nei must always be in your party, you must choose between Rudo and
Amy.  Before anything, I recommend taking Hugh to the Bio-Systems Lab and
building him up a few levels, that way he won't get killed by anything and
everything.  You should go back to Oputa and buy a few pieces of equipment
for him... a Fibergear and Fibercoat from the armor store, and if you can
afford it, two Ceramic Knives from the weapon store.  If you can't afford
the two knives, buy him another Scalpel.

     When you're ready to proceed, head back to the Bio-Systems Lab and
enter the nearby tunnel.  The Key Tube that the Librarian gave you will
allow you to open the locked door.  Now you can continue through the
tunnel to the other side.  Once on the other side, make your way to the
south and east, and you'll see yet another tunnel crossing over onto a
small island in the middle of the dried-up lake.  On this island, is a
town... this is the resort town of Zema!

  Fiber Emel          1360
  Mirror Shield       4800

     Take a quick look around town (noting all the equipment that you need to
buy -_-), then head back to Rolf's house at Paseo to meet up with another
companion... Anna, the guardian.  She is a vicious fighter whose job is to
track down (and destroy) evil hunters.  Though she can't use guns, she can
use most bladed weapons, including whips and slashers, which are her specialty!
After the introduction, it's now time to start building up more meseta to
purchase all this equipment!  I recommend taking Hugh and Anna with you to
build them up a bit higher, as the next dungeon will prove to be more difficult
than what we've been through before!

     The enemies around Zema are, for the most part, the same as the ones you
fought in the Bio-Systems Lab.  They should be good enough to gain meseta from,
though once you get Hugh and Anna built up to a reasonable level, and you're
feeling brave, you may want to head to the garbage dump Roron (which, by the
way, is our next target) which is southeast of Zema.  There are much more
powerful enemies there (that give very good exp and meseta), so if you do head
that way, be careful!  Be especially wary of the Slugmess enemy... they come
in HUGE groups (up to five!), and are capable of splitting (i.e making
clones of themselves!), and have very high HP and attack power.  Rolf's Zan
technique and Hugh's Sagen technique (as well as Anna's slashers) come in real
handy during battles with Slugmess.  However, the Slugmess are THE best source
of EXP and Meseta around here... 231 EXP and 218 Meseta apiece!!!

     The equipment I recommend purchasing is as follows....

Rolf:  2 Laser Knives, Titanium Helmet, Boots
Nei:   <Nothing>
Rudo:  2 Laser Knives, Titanium Gear
Amy:  Fiber Emel, Titanium Gear, Boots
Hugh:  2 Laser Knives, Titanium Gear, Boots
Anna:  2 Slashers, Titanium Gear

     *NOTE*  Your preference may differ from mine in a few places here.  Yes,
I know there are a lot of Laser Knives up there (and they aren't exactly cheap)
but they have more attack power than either the Ceramic Sword (Rolf), Cannon
(Rudo), or Slashers (Anna).  Also, if you want to buy another Poisonshot for
Amy instead of an Emel, it's up to you... but I figured the extra defense
gained from the Emel would help her out more than another Poisonshot (as they
don't really do all that much damage anyway).  Though the Laser Knives have
more attack power than the Slashers, they are capable of hitting all the
monsters in a particular group, giving them an advantage in battles with lots
of monsters.  Once again, it's up to you.

     Getting all this will probably take a while, but as I said before,
this gives you a good opportunity to level your new companions.  Obviously
if you're not planning on using a certain character for a while, there's no
point in buying equipment for them, but I went ahead and did it anyway, if
only to use it as an excuse to gain experience.  I usually try to keep
all my companions at a somewhat even level (except for Rolf and Nei, who will
inevitably be ahead, since you must always have them in your party), but
(as is the case many times), it's really a matter of preference.  ;)

     When you've finally purchased all the equipment you want, it's time to
head for the garbage dump, Roron.  It is located on a small peninsula to the
southeast of Zema.  The enemies there are very tough, so I recommend stocking
up on tons of Dimates... since they are rather cheap and you get good meseta
around here, buy as many as you can, but leave a few inventory spaces open
for treasure that you might find in Roron.

*------------------------------------------------------------------*

     This dungeon can be quite a bit frustrating.  As you enter, you'll see
a single chute leading down inside a small enclosed area.  However, what you
cannot see is that if you walk to the south around that area, there is another
similar area further south where there is another chute leading down.  This
is easy to miss, and as you might expect, is the correct way to go.  However,
for the sake of getting all the treasure, first go down the chute closest to
the entrance point of Roron.

     Once downstairs, follow the corridor to the north for a while, and you'll
reach a box.  However, upon opening it, all you'll find is a stash of garbage
(another frustrating aspect of this dungeon... most of the boxes merely contain
garbage!).  Continue to the right along the same corridor, and eventually you'll
reach a chute leading down.  Take this chute down to Basement 2, then walk to
the right to reach a box containing a Ceramic Bar.  And, well, that's pretty
much all there is down here.  Make your way back up to the entrance, then enter
the "south wing" by walking south around the enclosed area (you'll be walking on
the black area).  Take the chute here leading back down to the first basement.

     Once downstairs (again), follow the corridor to the right all the way
around until it branches off to the north.  Ignore this, continue your way to
the left, and you'll see another branch to the north.  Walk north, and soon
you'll reach a box containing a Cannon.  Pick it up, then continue to the north
and you'll reach another chute... take it down to basement 2.  Walk south past
the garbage box, and follow along the passage until you reach yet another chute,
leading down.  Use this one to reach basement 3 (the bottom floor).

     On the bottom floor, make your way to the south, and you'll see a few
Mota natives running around, as well as another box containing garbage.  Talk
to all of the Mota people, and you'll learn that one has assembled a Jet Scooter
and that he is about to test it out outside.  Once you have spoken to him, exit
Roron and you'll find the Jet Scooter abandoned outside.  Examine it and you'll
find a note that states the owner would rather fiddle with his garbage than
the Jet Scooter, and that the person who finds it can keep it.  Wow... must be
our lucky day!

     *NOTE*  Now that you have the Jet Scooter, you can explore the waters of
Mota.  You can get off anywhere where there is land by driving up next to the
shore and pressing the A button.  Also, all areas of Mota are accessible now,
so it's time to do some exploring!

     *ANOTHER NOTE*  Whenever you use the Ryuka technique, or teleport to a
a different town, the Jet Scooter will automatically appear at the closest body
of water to the town you teleported to.  This is to not make your Jet Scooter
inaccessible as you teleport from town to town!

     First head back to Zema to take a little break, then we should head off
for the next town.  Though we have the Jet Scooter, it is also accessible by
land.  Head southeast of Zema, and cross the bridge as if you were going to
Roron.  Once across the bridge, walk to the west, and you'll come to another
bridge.  Cross again, then make your way south and west, and through the gap
in the domes to reach yet another bridge to the north.  Once across this
bridge, the town of Kueri will be visible to the north!

     As has been the standard prodecure when reaching a new town, take a quick
look around, and cringe at the thought of purchasing the new equipment for your
characters (just a bit expensive?).  Then, teleport back to Paseo and visit
Rolf's house to meet your new companion... Kain, the wrecker.  Though Kain isn't
very useful against bio-monsters, his profession is trashing robots.  Many of
his techniques are similar to Hugh's, only Kain's effect robots while Hugh's
effect biomonsters.  Kain won't be become really useful until later in the game
when you start fighting robotic monsters.

     Don't add him to your party just yet... for now, teleport back to Kueri.
There is one more town that exists on Mota, and it is only accessible via the
Jet Scooter.  Exit town, and head for the shoreline to the west to find your
Jet Scooter conveniently waiting for you.  Jump on board, then sail due west
and you should hit an island with some mountains on it.  Remember where this
island is... you'll be searching for something here in a little while!  Sail
around to the south of this island, then sail due west until you reach land.
Park the scooter, then make your way across a series of bridges until you
reach the final town, Piata!

     As always, look around town, then teleport back to Paseo.  At Rolf's house,
you meet your final companion, Shir the thief.  Though not the most useful
character, Shir is useful in the fact that she can steal items from shops!  She
does this at random however, and after stealing an item, she will leave your
party.  In order to get her back, you'll have to head back to Rolf's house.
As she gains in strength, she will be able to steal more valuable items,
including the Visiphone... the most useful item in the game which allows you to
save your adventure anywhere, and even rare items such as Star Mist and Moon Dew!

     Now that you have all your companions and can teleport freely from any town,
it's time to start buying equipment.  Yes, there is a lot, and yes it is horridly
expensive, but it will be necessary as the monsters at Uzo Island are VERY strong.
First, head back to Kueri.  There is a researcher in this town who is trying to
develop a special gum that allows humans to breathe underwater.  You'll find his
house in the south part of town... you'll have to walk around the outside of town
to reach it (why is it these professor types always live out in the middle of
nowhere...?  ).  Upon talking to him, you'll learn that in order for him to
complete his project, he needs a special leaf called the Maruera Leaf that grows
on Uzo Island (remember that island with the mountains on it?  The one I told you
to remember?).  In order to get to Climatrol, we'll need this gum, so looks like
we'll have to help him!

     Remember, Uzo Island is due west of Kueri.  Walk up to the mountains and you
will enter the actual dungeon area.  I recommend fighting around here to gain EXP
and Meseta, which you receive in quite large amounts around here, though the
enemies are extremely tough.  Around Piata is also a good place to build up, at
least until you have enough equipment to survive at Uzo for any length of
time.  I also recommend leveling up Kain and Shir a bit, since (as always)
they start at level one.  The equipment from Piata can wait a while, so I suggest
getting the following...

Rolf -->  Titanium Chest
Nei -->  2 Laser Bars, Knifeboots
Rudo -->  Laser Shot, Titanium Armor
Amy -->  2 Acidshots, Titanium Cape
Hugh -->  Titanium Chest
Anna -->  2 Laser Slashers, Titanium Cape, Knifeboots
Kain -->  Titanium Armor, 2 Laser Knives & Titanium Helmet & Boots (from Zema)
Shir -->  2 Laser Knives & Boots (from Zema), Fibercape (from Oputa)

     When you've (finally) made all your purchases, set out for Uzo Island and
start your search for the Maruera Leaf!

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Uzo Island                                                        |
|My Level:  Rolf L16, Nei L32, Rudo L14, Anna L13                  |
|Items:  Maruera Leaf                                              |
|Monsters:  Scaly, Fanbite, Blockhed, Catman, Glowstik, Wolfang,   |
|           Head Rot, Burnwolf, Terakite                           |
*------------------------------------------------------------------*

     Uzo Island is a pain.  The monsters are strong, the island is simply huge,
and the layout is a nightmare... a maze if I ever saw one!  And to make matters
completely worse, there are seven Maruera trees at the top of the island, and
as you would expect... only one of them contains the leaf we are looking for!
Stock up on a full load of Dimates, and at least one Escapipe/Telepipe because
you will most likely need them!

     *NOTE*  Chances are good you're probably wondering about the Visiphone that
I've been preaching about up until now.  As a matter of fact, now would be a good 
time to get it.  Make sure that Shir is about level 10 or so, then head back to
the Central Tower at Paseo.  Enter the item-storage room, then exit, and repeat
until Shir makes her move.  Upon going back to Rolf's house and retrieving her,
you'll find your shiny new Visiphone in her inventory!  I recommend you give it
to Rolf since he'll be in your party for the entire game.  With the Visiphone,
you can save your adventure wherever you please!  However, note that when you
use the Visiphone to save, the Ryuka technique will always take you back to
Paseo.  =D

     From the island's entrance, walk to the right, and go up the stairs.  Then,
walk all the way to the left, up the stairs, and up the next stairs to your
north.  Go left, down the stairs, left a bit more, up the stairs, then all the
way to the left once again, and down the stairs.  Walk right, down the stairs,
and follow along this path until you reach a cave entrance.  Go inside and you'll
come out on a different part of the island.  You'll see a small pond nearby, with
a waterfall.  Go right a little ways, up the stairs, to the right, up the stairs,
right again, and up the stairs.  There's another cave entrance to the left, but
as it leads to a dead-end, ignore it.

     Walk all the way to the right, down the stairs, then follow along this path
until you reach yet another cave entrance.  Go inside, and you'll come out near
the top of the island.  There are Maruera trees to your left and right... the one
on the left contains the Leaf we want.  Search the tree, get the Maruera Leaf, and
then get the heck out of here!

     Scoot back to Kueri and re-visit the professor's house now that you have the
Maruera Leaf.  Hand it over to him and he will quickly make the Maruera Gum, which
will allow you to breathe underwater!  Don't worry about running out, as this Gum
can be used over and over (hmm... ABC gum, yummy!)

     Now the only thing left to do is find the underwater entrance to Climatrol.
Climatrol is the biggest dungeon thus far (hosting 8 floors plus an underwater
basement), and is home to the toughest bio-monsters in the game.  Before you go
there, I recommend buying the equipment from Piata to prepare yourself.

     More equipment upgrading blues....

Rolf -->  Laser Sword, Ceramic Chest
Nei -->  Jeweled Ribbon
Rudo -->  Laser Cannon, Ceramic Armor
Amy -->  Silver Crown, Ceramic Cape
Hugh -->  Ceramic Chest
Anna -->  Ceramic Cape, Silver Crown
Kain -->  Ceramic Armor
Shir -->  Ceramic Cape, Silver Crown

     Since you've already seen that the monsters at Uzo Island give large amounts
of Meseta (and EXP), I recommend fighting there to build money for the equipment.
The stuff is expensive, but your characters are strong enough by now that the
monsters shouldn't give you _too_ much trouble, so it won't take all that long.
You'd be surprised at how much stronger the new pieces of armor are!

     *NOTE*  As an alternative, you may want to take Shir along with you and have
her steal some items from the various shops.  What Shir will steal depends on 
which type of shop you enter, but she will often steal items that are not even
available for sale in the shops!  From item shops she may steal Star Mist (which
sell for 500 meseta) or Moon Dew (sells for a whopping 6000 meseta!)!  From
weapon shops, she will usually steal Daggers or Laser Knives, but rarely you may
get other items such as Laser Shots or even Fire Staves (which are darn nice
weapons for Amy!).  From armor shops, Shir will steal Silver Crowns, Shune Boots,
or Green Sleeves (a piece of armor only Shir can equip).  However, getting any
particular one of these items could take a very long time and is likely to be more
boring than fighting bio-monsters.

     As always, once you've purchased your new equipment I recommend once again
stocking up on Dimates (or even better, Trimates if you care to raise enough
money to buy lots of them).  Chances are my levels are higher than most people's,
but I recommend that Rolf be _at least_ level 15 before tackling Climatrol.  If
you aren't yet level 15, you should build up on Uzo Island until you are... like
I said before, Climatrol is the biggest and toughest dungeon yet!

     The underwater entrance to Climatrol is located in the ocean south of Uzo
Island.  On the Jet Scooter, head west from Kueri until you hit the island, then
position yourself on the west edge of the shoreline, then head due south.  Soon
you will reach a discolored spot in the ocean.  This is the entrance to Climatrol.
Sail up to the suspicious spot and use your Maruera Gum.  The party will dive
underwater and you'll be in the underwater basement.  Here we go!

     The underwater basement area contains many of those annoying damage zones
that existed in the basement of the Bio-Systems Lab.  Careful where you walk.

     From the entrance, move to the west along the corridor until it branches
off to the south.  Take this branch to the south, cross the damage zones (ouch),
and follow along the path some more.  When you reach a large open area with more
damage zones, move to the northwest, and soon you'll reach another large open
area.  Take the corridor leading off to the north, and follow this until you reach
yet another area with more damage zones.  Walk to the left, past a big clump of
damage zones, until you see a path leading off to the south.  Take this path,
cross the myriad of damage zones in this area, and make your way to the southwest
corner, where there are stairs leading up to the first floor of Climatrol itself!

     The first floor consists of some narrow passages, and is quite simple.  From
the chute, just walk south until you hit the wall, then walk all the way west until
you hit the wall.  Go south to the wall, then west until you reach the chute leading
up to floor two.  The second floor is just one small square-shaped room... walk to
the east and use the chute to get up to floor three.  Floor three is similar, but
with a large pit in the middle.  Head for the south side of the room to find a box
containing a Jeweled Ribbon, then head for the north side and use the chute to go
up to floor 4.  On floor 4, make your way to the south side of the room, grab the
box containing a Fibervest, then ascend the chute to floor 5.  Here's where things
get hairy.  The top four floors are large, and contain countless chutes leading
every which way.  On top of that, these floors contain the toughest bio-monsters in
the game.  =/

     On floor 5, you'll find yourself in the direct center of the floor.  Like many
of the other dungeons, there are four distinct 'corners' to the floor, and each
'corner' contains two chutes leading up.  Getting each of the treasures will be
difficult since they're scattered all over the place, so I'll divide the run up
into three distinct 'trips', each trip will end you back up at the center of the
fifth floor.

     Trip 1:  From the center of floor 5, head northeast and take the chute leading
up in the far northeast corner up to floor 6.  Walk south, and continue up the next
chute to floor 7.  Walk south from here and you'll find a box containing some
Sandals.  Pick them up, then continue down and to the right.  You'll see a chute
leading up to floor 8... ignore it, continue right, and down the chute on the far
right, back down to floor 6.  Walking south, you'll see two more chutes, one leading
up, the other leading down.  Ignore both of these, and follow the corridor until you
reach yet another chute leading up near the pit.  Take this up to floor 7, then
follow the path and take the chute at the end up to floor 8.  Walk west along this
corridor, and once you reach an open area, go southwest to reach another chute
leading down.  Go back down to floor 7, and walk right, then south to find a box
containing a Laser Bar.  Grab it, head back to the chute you came from, then walk
west to find a chute leading back down.  Take it down to floor 6, and walk south
along the edge of the pit.  Ignore the next chute leading up, and continue around the
outside of the pit until you reach a box containing some Knifeboots.  It will seem
like the path stops at a wall, but there is an itty-bitty walk-able piece of land
just between the wall and the pit (it's so small the wall conceals it).  Use this
to get over to the seemingly un-accessible chest.  Grab the treasure inside,
then go back and take the chute you passed to go back up to floor 7.  You'll be
in a small isolated room here, so just walk south and take the next chute down to
floor 6.  Walk to the southeast and take the chute at the end of the passage back
down to floor 5, and make your way back to the center.  Trip 1 complete!

     *NOTE*  If you need, you can exit Climatrol and come back here after a quick
rest.  If you feel you're in good enough condition to continue... well, continue!

     Trip 2:  We've already got the majority of the treasures, so this one will be
short.  Head for the southwest area of floor 5, and take the chute in the far
southwest corner.  Move east to a large open area, and you'll see a chute leading
up and one leading down in the vicinity.  Take the one leading up, then follow the
corridor to the west to reach a box containing a Ceramic Bar.  Go back east, down
the chute, and down the other nearby chute leading down.  You'll end up back down
on floor 5.  Now head back to the center.  Trip 2 complete!

     *NOTE*  This will be the final trip.  The top floor contains a boss monster,
the first one you've fought so far.  As you would expect, it is _tough_, so I
recommend going back to town and taking a rest, whether you think you need it or
not.  I also recommend stocking up on some Trimates (your runs through here most
likely are filling up your pockets quite nicely!), and if you haven't gotten the
Visiphone yet, I strongly recommend you do so now.  Once you're ready and rested,
head back to the center of floor 5.  Here we go!!

     *ANOTHER NOTE*  Try to conserve Rolf's TP as you make your way to the boss.
Provided you have enough Trimates, you shouldn't have to use either his healing
techs or his fighting techs unless you're really in trouble.  Trust me... you'll
need Rolf's TP for the boss fight.

     Trip 3:  Head for the northwest area of the floor, and take the chute that
is situated near about the middle of the north wall (i.e not the one in the far
northwest corner).  Take this up to floor 6, and take the next chute that's about
two steps away to continue up to floor 7.  Walk south through the open area, and
take the narrow corridor leading east.  When it branches to the south, head south
and you'll reach a chute leading down.  Take this back down to floor 6, then head
west to find a box containing a Silver Ribbon.  Grab this, head back east to the
chute, then walk south along the outside of the pit to reach yet another chute
leading back up to floor 7.  Take it, then walk straight west to reach a chute
leading up to floor 8.  Ride it up to the top floor, then walk east to a semi-
open area.  You'll see several narrow passages leading to the right... five of
them to be exact.  Most lead to dead-ends, but one (the one in the center), leads
to the boss monster.  Wait a minute... doesn't that look like Nei??

     *NOTE*  Before talking to the boss monster, use the Visiphone and save your
game!  As I said before, the boss is tough, and you don't want to have to march
all the way through Climatrol again!

     *ANOTHER NOTE*  Nei _must_ be alive for this part.  If Nei is dead, you
might as well exit Climatrol now and go bring her back to life.  :/

     Upon talking to the mysterious Nei-lookalike, you'll learn that her name
is Neifirst (?), and that, Like Nei, she is a product of combined human cells
with those of a bio-hazard.  Since the scientists at the Bio-Systems lab deemed
the project a failure, they tried to kill her, but failed.  Neifirst escaped,
stealing DNA from the Bio-Systems Lab that allowed her to create the bio-monsters
as revenge for conducting their experiments!  The bio-hazards all over Mota were
caused by Neifirst!

     However, she also explains that there is 'another' Nei inside her, one that
is trying to stop her.  This, of course, is the Nei that we all know so well.
But Nei protests that she, unlike Neifirst, isn't a monster that despises all
people, and attacks her!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
= Boss Battle:  Neifirst                          =
- Hit Points:  1,100                              -
= Attack Power:  178        Defense Power:  10    =
- Experience:  1,111        Meseta:  1,111        -
= Special:  Attacks all allies                    =
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

     First, you'll be fighting Neifirst with Nei alone.  No matter how powerful
Nei might be, Neifirst is probably way too powerful for Nei to overtake by
herself.  Though in theory it _is_ possible to kill her, chances are it's not
gonna happen.  After fighting valiantly, Nei is soon over-powered and slain by
Neifirst.  Rolf and party fly into a rage and attack Neifirst.  Now comes the
real battle!

     Now you'll be fighting with only three members, excluding Nei who has
tragically been slain.  As you'll see, Neifirst's atttack power is extremely
high, and her special attack will hit all members of your party.  Rolf should
repeatedly throw out the Nafoi technique, while your other party members should
attack with their weapons.  If someone starts running low on HP (which is quite
likely), have the weakest member (i.e the one that does the least damage to
Neifirst) use a Trimate on him/her.  Neifirst has 1,100 HP (quite a lot, no?),
and she is fully restored before the battle so any damage Nei may have done to
her is nullified.  Neifirst is tough, but not impossible.

     *NOTE*  If by some small miracle you manage to defeat Neifirst with Nei
alone (be it by cheating or whatever :P), Nei will still die, as since she is
a part of Neifirst, when Neifirst perishes she will as well.  If Nei is at a
really high level and you give her a full load of Trimates it _might_ be
possible, but it sure won't be easy.

     Either way, after the battle, all the energy that was being controlled by
Neifirst begins to pour into the system at once!  Climatrol will begin to
explode, and all the rain supply stored by Climatrol will begin to flow into
the central lake.  Now, instead of being completely dried up, there is so much
water that Motavia is in danger of flooding!  Rolf safely transports the party
back to the capital of Paseo.  You'll automatically head to the Clone Lab, but
as stated before, since Neifirst and Nei are of the same origin, the death of
Neifirst in turn destroyed Nei as well, and she cannot be returned.  She also
mentions a plateau near Paseo where you can put her to rest.  Aftewards Rolf
heads back to the Central Tower.

     On your way up to meet the governor, a frantic townsperson explains the
situation... that the lake has overflowed and Mota is in danger of flooding!
The only way to save Mota is to open the four dams that regulate the water
supply in the lake.  If the dams are opened, the excess water supply will be
carried out safely to the ocean.  Rolf volunteers for the job, but the governor
explains that the government of Palma (the first planet of the Algo system) has
labeled Rolf and party the cause for the malfunction in Mother Brain, and has
sent an army of robots out onto Mota to exterminate you!  Still, Rolf insists
on taking the job, so the governor reluctantly decides to assign Rolf with the
task of opening the four dams.  The cards are hidden in a secret control tower,
the location of which is unknown.  There are four keycards, one for each dam.
The cards allow you to both enter the dam, and activate the control panel
inside which opens the floodgates.  Now, once again we have our work cut out
for us... we must find the keycards, and open the dams before Mota floods!

     *NOTE*  Nei is now gone from your party, permanently.  Any items that she
was carrying (including equipment) are also gone.  If Nei was carrying the
Visiphone... well, hmm, heheh... you're screwed.  :(

     *ANOTHER NOTE*  Now that Neifirst is dead, the bio-monsters are gone from
Mota, permanently.  However there is a new threat to Rolf and his friends... the
robots that have been sent out by the government of Palma!  You will be fighting
the security robots instead of the bio-monsters from this point forward.  Thus,
Hugh loses most of his usefulness at this point, while Kain gains his usefulness.
Also, you'll obviously have three party slots available now, since Nei is no
longer among us.  =(



                 -/\/\/\-> Opening the Dams, Part One <-/\/\/\-

     The 'secret' control tower where the keycards are located is situated in
the town of Piata.  Teleport back there, then head for the northwest corner of
town.  You'll see a bridge that leads over to a tiled area kinda shaped like a
+, but there's nothing over there.  Walk south along the edge of town, and
when you're about even with the hospital, head due west.  You'll come to a
ruined area of town with a few destroyed houses and three towers.  The control
tower in the middle is the one that houses the keycards we are looking for!

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Control Tower                                                     |
|My Level:  Rolf L18, Rudo L15, Anna L15, Kain L14                 |
|Items:  Red Card, Yellow Card, Blue Card, Green Card              |
|Monsters:  Mazgamma, Wireface, Metalman, Informer, Eyesore        |
*------------------------------------------------------------------*

     *NOTE*  Before doing anything, make sure that one the characters you are
bringing along has the Musik technique (if you forgot, you can learn from 
Ustvestia, the piano teacher, in Oputa).  You'll need it to gain access to
the keycards!

     The Control Tower has only two floors, but if you thought Climatrol was
bad for having chutes all over the place, you haven't seen anything yet.  The
first floor has no less than 69 chutes leading up to the next floor (No, I'm
not kidding.  There really are 69 chutes.  Stop laughing.).  If you know where
you're going the dungeon is fairly short, and if you don't it will probably
take forever.  Of course, the same thing could be said for almost every
dungeon, but... -_-

     Upon entering the Control Tower, make your way north, around the large
structure in the center of the floor.  Once you are on the north side of the
floor, there will be a corridor leading to the left and right.  Walk to the
left, passing by chute after chute along the way.  Once you reach the left
end of the corridor, go back right counting off the chutes, and take the 4th
chute from the left up to floor 2.  Walk south, past a few more chutes, until
you reach the south end of the corridor.  You'll find yourself in a wide open
area, with one lone chute leading down on the left-hand side.  Take this one
down, then take a few steps south and take another chute back up to floor 2.
Make your way to the right, going upstairs/downstairs repeatedly until you
reach an area on the second floor where there are four chutes in a row leading
down.  Take the third one, then walk north and take the chute at the end of
the passage back up to floor 2.  Now you should be in the center of the floor.

     Walk to the right, cross the pit, and walk up to the piano.  Here's where
you'll need to use the Musik techinque!  Use Musik in front of the piano to
play it, and the door behind the structure containing the piano will open.

     *NOTE*  If you examine the piano, your party will remark on the piano
and sheet music.  However, don't touch the piano!  By doing so you'll be
teleported back outside the Tower, and you don't want to have to go through
here again.  :(

     Go back there past where the door was, and you'll find four consoles.
Search each of these to obtain the four keycards to the dams!  Now that we
have these, we can now begin our quest to open the four dams and save Mota!

     Techincally, you can tackle the dams in any order you please, but the
recommended order is "Red, Yellow, Blue, Green" as both the monsters you fight
and the complexity of each dam increases in that order.  In other words, the
Yellow Dam is tougher than the Red Dam, Blue is tougher than Yellow, and Green
is toughest.  Our first target is Red Dam, which although is the least
difficult of the dams, it is the most difficult to get to (though neither of
the four dams are exceedingly difficult to reach).

     As you've probably seen throughout your 'hikes' throughout Mota, each
dam is located near the Central Lake.  There is one on each side of the Lake
(north, east, south, west) and they are only accessible via the Jet Scooter.
The Red Dam is located on the south side of the Central Lake.  To get there,
teleport to Zema and southeast to the peninsula where Roron is.  Board the
Jet Scooter.. the wide canal that leads to the Red Dam should be right
nearby.  =)

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Red Dam                                                           |
|My Level:  Rolf L18, Rudo L16, Anna L16, Kain L15                 |
|Items:  Sword of Anger, Fire Slasher, Fire Staff                  |
|Monsters:  Mazgamma, Eyesore, Poleziax, Wireface, Sonomech,       |
|           Metalman, Informer, Wirehead                           |
*------------------------------------------------------------------*

     The Red Dam is the least complex of the four, and consists of three
floors... two ground floors and a basement.  Upon entering the Red Dam,
use the Red Card to open the door.  The path through the dam is actually
rather straight-forward, as there aren't really that many dead-ends (or
zillions of chutes leading every which way :P).  After passing through the
door, head for the north-west corner of the floor and descend the chute
down to the basement.

     Once downstairs, follow the corridor until you reach a rather large
open area, and about in the middle there will be a chute leading back up.
Ride back up to the ground floor, then walk south.  Here there will be a
passage leading off to the west, and a chute in the southeast corner,
leading up.  Take the chute up to the second floor, and you'll find yourself
in an enclosed area with a box.  Open it up to obtain a Fire Slasher... a
rather nice weapon for Anna!  Go back down the chute and follow that passage
leading off to the left, and take the chute in the south-west corner back down
to the basement.

     Back downstairs again, head to the north and east, and you'll reach
another open area, with a chute leading up (once again) about in the center.
Ride it back up to ground floor, then head west and use the chute in the
north-west corner to travel up to floor two.  Now follow the passage around
the large pit, and make your way to the right-hand side of the floor.  When
you come to another group of pits, you'll see the console that controls the
opening of the dam to the south across the pit, but we can't get to it from
here.  Once you pass the pit 'group', head to the south and pick up a box
in a nearby nook to obtain a Fire Staff, which is a rather good weapon for
Amy.  Note that the Fire Staff also throws out a FOI technique if you use
it in battle!  Grab it, then go back up and continue making your way to the
right-hand side of the floor.

     After walking around another large pit, you should (finally) come to a
chute leading down.  Ride back down to ground level, then head south and use
the chute in the south-east corner to head back down to the basement.  From
the chute you just came from, head to the north and west, and you'll come to
one last box... containg the Sword of Ango for Rolf (which is a nice weapon,
might I add :).  Pick it up, then head back down and take the passage leading
to the left, and follow it around until you reach a chute in the north-east
corner.  Ride it back up to ground level (up down up down... getting tired
yet?), then continue along the corridor until you reach one last chute
leading back up to floor 2.  Take this chute up to the top floor, then head
left to (finally) reach the dam-opening console!  Use the Red Card on the
console and the Red Dam will open.  That's one down... three to go!  Exit
the Red Dam and head back to town for a well-deserved rest.

     Our next stop... the Yellow Dam!



                 -/\/\/\-> Opening the Dams, Part Two <-/\/\/\-

     The Yellow Dam is located on the western side of the Central Lake.  The
easiest way to get there is to teleport back to Kueri, and head for the
nearby shoreline and jump on your handy-dandy Jet Scooter.  From there, sail
a short ways north and you'll see the canal leading to the Yellow Dam.  Here
we go!

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Yellow Dam                                                        |
|My Level:  Rolf L19, Rudo L16, Anna L16, Kain L15                 |
|Items:  Escapipe, Crystal Cape, Crystal Chest, Crystanish,        |
|        Amber Robe                                                |
|Monsters:  Sonomech, Wirehead, Eyesore, Firgamma, Informer,       |
|           Metalman, Poleziax, Twig Man, Mazgamma, Cooley61,      |
|           Wireface                                               |
-------------------------------------------------------------------*

     The Yellow Dam is a bit more complicated than the Red Dam, with four
rather large floors.  First of all, as you did in the Red Dam, use your
Yellow Card to open the entrance gate, then head out into the huge open
area that is the first floor.  As you head out, you'll pass by two chutes,
both leading up.  Ignore both of these, as each lead to dead-ends.  Instead,
make your way to the far right wall of the floor, and (as there were on the
left side) there will be two more chutes (both leading up, of course).  First
take the top one up to floor two.

     Once upstairs, head to the left along the passage, until you reach a
branch where the corridor goes left and right.  Head to the left and you'll
pass by a chute... ignore this one and continue along the corridor until you
reach a dead-end, where there is another chute leading up.  Take this one up,
and open the box in the enclosed area you come out in to obtain a Crystanish..
a nice suit of armor for Rudo to equip.  Once you've gotten this, retrace
your steps all the way back down to the first floor.  Take the other (bottom)
chute back up to floor two, then head south to find a box containing an
Escapipe.  Pick it up, then from the box walk left until you reach an open
area.  Go north, and at the end of the short dead-end corridor you'll find
another chute leading back down... take it back down to the ground floor.

     You'll now find yourself in the enclosed area in the middle of the bottom
floor.  Head due west and you'll hit another chute.  Take it back up to floor
two, then head west and north until you hit another chute leading further up.
Take it up to floor three, then walk south, and continue up the next chute
up to the top floor.  The top floor is a bit strange as it consists of three
'spiral' structures.  After going up the chute you'll find yourself in the
middle of one of these spirals.  Make your way out of the spiral, and at the
"exit", you'll see a chute to the south.  Ignore it for a second, then walk
due north of this chute, and make right to find a dead-end where you'll find
a chest containing an Amber Robe.  This robe, only equippable by Hugh, isn't
exactly a good piece of armor, but it throws out a "Res" technique on the
person who uses it in battle!

     After opening the box, head back down to the chute I mentioned before,
and take it down to floor 3.  Grab the box in the enclosed area you end up
in to obtain a Crystal Cape, a better Cape for Amy, Anna, or Shir.  Equip it,
head back upstairs once more, then walk to the right.  Soon you'll reach
another chute leading down.  Take this one down and, like before, open the
chest in the enclosed area to find a Crystal Chest... better armor for Rolf
or Hugh!  Head back upstairs one last time, then continue right until you hit
the right-hand side of the floor.  You'll pass another chute leading down
along the way, but ignore it.  Once you hit the south-east corner, walk up
the right-side of the floor and you'll see the "entrance" to another spiral
structure.  Ignore this, and make your way up the northeast corner.  Once
there, walk west along the north edge of the floor (no, we're not going in
circles :P), until you see a path leading south.  This is the "entrance" to
the middle spiral structure.

     Make your way around the spiral until you reach the chute in the middle.
Descend back down to floor three and you'll find yourself right at the
dam-opening console!  How convenient!  Place your Yellow Card in the console
and the dam will open.  Two more dams left!

     Make your usual run back to town and rest, plus stock up on some more
Trimates if necessary.  Our next target is the Blue Dam, located on the east
side of the Central Lake.  The easiest way to get there is to teleport to
Kueri, jump in your Jet Scooter, and sail north until you are even with the
canal leading to the Yellow Dam.  From there, sail due west until you hit
the east side of Mota, and right into the canal leading to the Blue Dam!  =D

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Blue Dam                                                          |
|My Level:  Rolf L20, Rudo L17, Anna L17, Kain L16                 |
|Items:  Antidote, Crescegear, Star Mist, Snow Crown, Wind Scarf,  |
|        Trimate, Colorscarf, Storm Gear                           |
|Monsters:  Sonomech, Wirehead, Poleziax, Wireface, Cooley61,      |
|           Informer, Firgamma, Attmech, Eyesore, Twig Man, Van,   |
|           Pod Head, Mazgamma                                     |
-------------------------------------------------------------------*

     The Blue Dam consists of five reasonably large floors, and the monsters
here are tougher than those you've faced previously.  As always, having a
bunch of Trimates and an Escapipe/Telepipe handy just may save your life if
the going gets too rough!

     Upon entering the Blue Dam, unlock the door with your Blue Cardkey,
then proceed into the actual dam.  After doing so, you'll find yourself in
a quite large and open room.  Make your way to the south, around the outside
of the entrance room, and you'll come to a chute in the south-east corner.
Take it up to floor 2, and grab the Antidote in the treasure box upstairs.
Now go back downstairs, and go north-west through the very large and open
room, until you reach the north-west corner where there is another chute
leading back up.  Ride this one back up to floor 2, then walk south until
you hit the wall, then east until you reach another chute.

     Ride up to floor 3, then walk west and follow this path until you
reach the north-west corner of this fairly large area.  There will be
a chute leading up and a chute leading down in the vicinity (the down
chute is in the far north-east corner while up chute is slightly to the
south-west).  Take the down chute to go back down to floor 2, then walk
south-west through another large room to reach a box containing a Crescegear,
a very useful helmet!  Even though it isn't any stronger than the Titanigear,
be sure to hold onto as it throws out a GIRES technique on whoever uses
it in battle!

     Go back upstairs, then go up the other chute to floor 4.  Walk to
the east a short ways, continue up to floor 5 (the top floor), then move
to the south and east, until you reach a chute leading back down, as well
as a treasure box containing a Storm Gear.  This helmet is only equippable
by Kain, and isn't any stronger than the Titanimet, but it throws out a
GIZAN technique (which effects ALL enemies rather than just an enemy
'group') when used in battle.  I recommend giving this to Kain, and have
him use the Storm Gear as an item in battle in lieu of attacking.  =)

     Take the chute leading down, back down to floor 4, and walk to the
right.  You'll notice 5 pits in a checker-board fashion, a treasure box,
and a chute leading back up.  The treasure box contains a Colorscarf, some
head equipment for Anna.  Not only is it more powerful than the Silver
Crown... it also throws out a SANER technique when used in battle.  The 
chute leading up leads to a dead-end, so it's apparent the correct path
is down one of the pits.  The two on the right and the one in the center
lead to the same place, so fall down either one of those pits, and you'll
end up back down on floor 3, directly in front of a treasure box.  Open it
up to obtain a Snow Crown.  It is only equippable by Amy, but it also is 
more stronger than the Silver Crown, and even throws out a DEBAN technique
when used in battle!

     Grab the treasure, then move south, and down the next chute... back
down to floor 2.  Walk to the left, through this next large room, and
take the next chute leading down, back down to the ground floor.  Now,
move to the north, and through the narrow passage connecting this room
with the rest of the floor.  Once through that narrow passage, make your
way left and south, towards the south-west corner of the floor.  Upon
reaching the south-west area of the floor, look to the east for another
chute leading back up to floor 2.  Go back upstairs, then take the chute
directly to your north-east up to floor 3 for a box containing a Wind
Scarf.  This scarf is equippable by Shir, and throws out a ZAN technique
(effecting ALL enemies) when used in battle.

     Now, go back down to floor 2, and make your to the far north-west
corner of this floor to find another chute leading back up.  Go back up
to floor 3, then walk all the way to the north-west corner of the floor
once again, and continue up to floor 4.  Now go south and follow the
path, and you'll pass by the north edge of a square pit, with the dam
opening console directly in the center.  You can't get to it from here,
so ignore it for the time being.  Continue to the right, and ride the
chute back down to floor 3.  Then, move to the south and west, go back
up to floor 4 _again_, and you'll see the console once again to the
northwest.  You still can't get to it, so ignore it once again.  :(

     Head to the south-west to pick up a box containing a Trimate, then
go back east and up to the north-east corner, and take the chute leading
back up to floor 5.  Back on the top floor, follow the path until you
reach another chute leading back down, descend to floor 4, and there
will be a down chute directly to your south, and an up chute to the
south and west.  First take the down chute to reach a box on floor 3
containing a very useful Star Mist!  Then go back up, and take the
up-chute in the south-west corner to travel back up to floor 5... again.

     Move to the north-east, through the large room, until you come to
two strangely-shaped pits near the north-east corner.  Fall down into
either of the pits and you'll land right near the dam-opening console!
Use the Blue Card to unlock the console and open the dam.  Three dams
are open... there's only one more to go!



                     -/\/\/\-> The Great Collapse <-/\/\/\-

     Head back to town and rest up from that taxing trip, and be sure
to re-stock up on Trimates, because the final dam will prove to be the
most difficult task yet!

     The Green Dam is located on the north side of the Central Lake,
visible from Paseo.  The easiest way to get there is to teleport back
to Paseo, then walk north, across the bridge, until you reach the
seashore.  Jump on your Jet Scooter and the Canal leading to the Green
Dam will be just to your left.  Here we go!

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Green Dam                                                         |
|My Level:  Rolf L21, Rudo L18, Anna L18, Kain L17                 |
|Items:  Telepipe, Star Mist, Aegis, Truth Sleeves, Gr Sleeves     |
|Monsters:  Kilgamma, Poleziax, Cooley61, Twigtall, Attmech,       |
|           Pod Head, Informer, Van, Firgamma, Monster, Twig Man,  |
|           Wirehead, Hvysolid                                     |
-------------------------------------------------------------------*

     Although the Green Dam only consists of two floors, it is still the
most complex of the four dams, as the floors are very large, and, in the
tradition of Climatrol and the Control Tower, has zillions of chutes all
over the place.  While the previous three dams were reasonably
straight-forward, this one can really make you groan.  Make sure you
have a stash of Trimates handy... not only is the layout confusing, the
monsters are quite strong!

     First, as always, use your Green Card to unlock the door and gain
entrance to the Dam.  Just past the door is a chute leading up into the
nightmare that is the actual dam.  Ride it up to floor 2, then walk a
few steps north, and then west until you see a chute up against the
western wall.  Ride this one back down to floor 1, then go west and
up the next chute.  Take the Truth Sleeves in the nearby box (Truth
Sleeves are a shield-type weapon that only Shir can equip, and they
also throw out a RES technique when used in battle).
     
     After looting the box, walk to your north-west, and you'll come
to a room with two more chutes... one to your north and one to your
south.  Take the northern one back down to floor 1, head west a short
ways, and ride the next chute back up once again.  Walk a little ways
to the left, and you'll see a narrow walkway leading off to the north
which curls around the outside of the Dam area.  Ignore this for now,
but remember its location.  Instead, make your way to the far
south-west corner of the floor, and take the nearby chute back down
to the bottom floor.  Now head north and east, and around the
mini-spiral to the chest in the middle, which contains a Telepipe.
Grab it, then go back to the walkway I mentioned before (you DID
remember its location, didn't you...?  :P)

     Walk along the walkway to the east, on the outside of the north
wall of the Dam (just don't step onto the black area or else you will
be dumped back outside!).  Once on the far right side, you'll be able
to get back into the Dam area, and just near the exit there's another
chute leading down.  Ride it down to the ground floor, and make your
way to the far south-east corner where there is a box containing the
Aegis... a quite powerful shield!  Since Rolf and Rudo probably have
their hands full with their weapons, you may want to give it to
Kain (and since Kain is better off attacking with the Storm Gear, it
will probably do him some good anyway.)  Even though the Aegis isn't
as strong as the Ceramic Shield, it's better than nothing.. and plus
it throws out a GIRES technique when used!  =)

     Grab the chest, then make your way back to the chute you came
down, and ride it back upstairs.  Go left until you hit the wall,
then south until you hit the southern edge of the Dam.  You'll see
two chutes in close proximity in this area... ignore both for just a
minute.  From these chutes, walk east to the wall, and then north,
and you'll reach a box containing some Gr(een) Sleeves.  Like the Truth
Sleeves, the Gr Sleeves are a shield-type weapon, equippable only by
Amy, Anna, Shir.  The Gr Sleeves are much more powerful than any other
shield-type weapon so far, and also fires off a SHINB technique when
used.

     Now head back to the pair of chutes I mentioned before.  First
take the one on the right down to floor 1, and make your way to the
north to find a box containing an ever-useful Star Mist.  Take it,
then go back upstairs the way you came, and ride the other chute
back down.  Walk a little ways to the left, and ride the next chute
back up to floor 2.  Now, from here it's just a short walk to the
dam-opening console!  Before opening the final dam, heal your party
members up fully... you'll see why shortly.  Use the Green Card to
unlock the Dam and it will open!  However, no sooner than Rolf
unlocks the Dam... the party is attacked by a group of sentry Robots!!

     *NOTE*  The Army Eyes will appear after the fourth dam is
unlocked.  This doesn't necessarily have to be the Green Dam, but
I'm assuming that most people will do the dams in the "proper" order.
:P

     First of all, know that the Army Eyes cannot be defeated.  During
the third round of combat, one of them will trap the party with Plasma
Rings, and you'll be shipped off to the Gaira satellite.  However, if
you manage to get killed by them, it's still "Game Over", I'm afraid.
Put up a fight if you wish, but there's no way you can destroy all
three before the third round.

     *NOTE*  If you're a cheater and defeat all three, you'll get 2
lousy experience points, and won't be sent to Gaira, but know that you
won't be able to complete the game!  If they are defeated you can't get
to Gaira, and thus the story cannot advance.  Your only choice is to
re-load your saved game, and go back and fight them "the right way" the
next time.  If you saved after you killed them... my best advice would
be to go outside, get the biggest stick you can find, and beat yourself
over the head with it.  Unless you saved in a different slot earlier,
you have no choice but to start over.

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Gaira Satellite                                                   |

-------------------------------------------------------------------*

     After the battle with the Army Eyes, Rolf and party are taken prisoner
and delivered to the space satellite Gaira.  All your items and equipment
have been confiscated, leaving you with only Prison Clothes and the Plasma
Rings that bind you.  The Plasma Rings are meant to keep prisoners from
escaping, and while binded you cannot fight, use items, or techniques.
The only to evade your enemies is to run away.  Gaira is also littered with
damage zones to help prevent prisoners from escaping, but as it is still
unclear who is trying to manipulate Mother Brain, Rolf decides that it
would be best to attempt to escape anyway.

     Gaira isn't overly large, but there isn't any way to defeat the
enemies that inhabit it.  Fortunately they are rather weak, but just
standing there and letting them kill you isn't going to do a bit of good
at all.  Therefore, run from any encounters you face... it's the only way
to survive!  =/

     From the entrance point, walk north across the damage zones and
take the path leading off to the east.  Make your way along this path
until you reach a four-way "intersection"... go right from here and
once you reach a large open room, take the path to the south.  As you
walk along here a tremendous explosion shakes the satellite and sends
it spinning out of orbit!  It would be a good idea to get to the control
panel and fix it... immediately!

     Continue along the path to the south and east, and when you reach
a north/south junction, go north.  Follow along the path a little bit
more and you'll soon reach the Control Panel.  After checking it, it
becomes apparent the Gaila is head straight for the planet of Parma!!
Before Rolf can do anything, another explosion is heard and everything
goes dark....

     After another dream sequence similar to the one in the introduction,
Rolf awakens aboard the ship belonging to a space pirate named Tyler.
He happened to be nearby and rescued the party just after the last
explosion.  Rolf and party are OK, but the planet of Parma was completely
destroyed in the collision.  Tyler informs the party that someone on the
planet Dezo has mysterious powers to do things that the Mother Brain
cannot, and that in order to solve the mystery of the Mother Brain, it
would be a good idea for Rolf and party to visit him.  Tyler drops the
party back off at Paseo, and Rolf quickly heads to the Central Tower.

     The Governor states that only one functional spaceship remains,
located on the roof of the Central Tower, and that Rolf can use it to
fly to Dezo.  However, since Rolf and party are still the prime
suspects for the corruption of Mother Brain, the robots are still out
full force, and some even occupy Dezo.  At any rate, make any preparations
you may need, then when you're ready head to the roof of Central Tower
and fly to Dezolis!

     *NOTE*  Since the monsters on Dezo shift back to bio-monsters more
than robots, I traded Kain for Amy at this point.  Amy's healing spells
will prove to be a lot more of an asset than Kain's attacks, considering
on Dezo bio-monsters outnumber the Robots.  I also recommend trading off
the Storm Gear to Amy so she can use it in battle... chances are likely
it will be more powerful than her normal attack.



                  -/\/\/\-> Exploring Dezolis <-/\/\/\-

     The spaceship will land at the Skure space station, situated in
the center of Dezolis.  Each time you fly to Dezolis, you'll have to
make your way through Skure, so it's a good idea to make yourself
familiar with it.  There are four exits from Skure, each leading to
different areas of Dezo.  In this section, I'll run you around Dezo,
visiting each town and getting familiar with the Space Station.  ;)

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Skure                                                             |
|My Level:  Rolf L21, Rudo L18, Anna L18, Amy L17                  |
|Items:  Magic Cap x2, Mogic Cap, 73,400 Meseta, Laconchest,       |
|        Gardaboots                                                |
|Monsters:  Dezo Owl, Trcrbase, Monster, Wirehead, Orangah,        |
|           Orangoo, Gun Bust, Twigtall, Rabbit, Rabbita,          |
|           Lrgminer, Skytiara                                     |
-------------------------------------------------------------------*

     *NOTE*  In addition to the robots hanging around, Dezolis has its
own assortment of bio-hazards.  Therefore, Hugh will re-gain usefulness
once again.  Amy will also become a bit more useful after purchasing
some of the new equipment on Dezo.  I can't really recommend taking
Shir to Dezo however, as if she goes on a stealing kick after you enter
a shop, she'll take her little walk on the wind all the way back to
Paseo, which means you're either stuck with three party members, or
you have to go ALL the way back to Paseo, retrieve her, and go ALL
the way back through Skure once again.  If you must bring her along,
at least wait until all your shopping is done.

     This first section is a tour of Skure (hey that rhymed... I think),
which basically runs you around to each of the three towns of Dezo, each
time starting from the center of Skure (where the spaceship drops you off).
You can do these in any order you wish, but note that the Dezolians speak
a different language that Rolf and friends cannot understand, and in
order to do so, you'll need to find a "Mogic Cap".  This can be found
in one of the chests in Skure, and unless one of your party members is
wearing it, you will be unable to communicate with ANY Dezolians.
Of course this means you won't be able to rest, buy items, etc.

     *NOTE*  Once again, each of these "trips" starts from the center
of Skure.

     Trip #1:  Aukba

     Take the corridor to the north and follow it until you reach an
east/west split.  Go west, and down the chute that you come to.  Walk
west a short ways, and the path will split off at a 4-way intersection.
Go north for a chest containing a Magic Cap, then go back, and go south
and down the next chute.  Walk north into a room with a mother-lode
of six treasure chests!  Only three of them contain items... they are
another Magic Cap, the Mogic Cap and 5,600 Meseta.

     *NOTE*  As I said before, wearing a "Mogic Cap" is the only way to
communicate with the people of Dezo, and only Rolf can equip it.  The
Magic Cap also allows you to speak with the cats that are wandering around
in Skure, but they will usually be "hostile" towards you.  There are also
fake Caps called "Magic Caps" floating around.  Though they have the same
effect as the Mogic Cap, while wearing the Magic Cap the cats will give
you information rather than being "hostile", but all services in Dezo will
cost twice as much (this means resting, teleporting, items, equipment...
everything), and all the Dezolians will tell you lies.  The only thing
it's good for is talking to the animals.  -_-

     After collecting the treasure, take the east corridor out from this
room, and then take the first branch off to the south to reach another
chest containing a Laconchest... a quite powerful suit of armor for Rolf
or Hugh.  Get this, then go back the you came until you reach the four-way
intersection once more.  This time walk left, and ignore the chute to the
south for just a second.  Ride the chute on your left downstairs, and
take the chest at the end of the dead-end path to obtain 7,800 Meseta!
Now go back upstairs and take the other chute (the one I told you to
ignore just a minute ago).  

     Follow the long narrow corridor until you reach another chute leading
back upstairs.  Take this one up, and walk left.  The path leading off to
the south leads to a box containing 8,600 Meseta... be sure to get it!
Continue left and up the chute, and you'll find yourself now on the
surface of Dezo.  You'll find the town of Aukba a short ways to the
northeast of the exit to Skure!

     It's been a while since the next new town, so you'll probably have
acquired tons of Meseta, but the sheer outrageous prices of the equipment
here will still probably deplete your funds in no time flat.  It would
probably be for the best to visit the other towns first and survey what
equipment each has, and purchase the best from each.

     Once you reach Aukba, you can now teleport here from any other town,
or back to the spaceship at Skure.  However, you cannot teleport from
Skure back to the towns, which raises the need of having to go through
Skure every time you want to get back to Dezo from Paseo (which can be
quite annoying).  -_-

     Take a look around, then teleport back to Skure and get ready for
the next trip.

     Trip #2:  Zosa

     From the center of Skure, take the corridor to the north and follow
it until you see a path leading off to the west.  Go west, and it will
turn south.  Now follow it all the way south until you hit the wall,
then east and down the chute.  Downstairs, there will be paths leading
to the north and east.  Go north and open up the box to obtain 6,400
Meseta, then continue north and go down the first chute.  Follow the
path down and around until you reach another chute, and ride it back
upstairs.

     Now walk north until the path splits to the left and right, and
take right path.  Open the box you come across to obtain a pair of Garda
Boots (equippable by the males), then continue east and up the stairs at
the dead-end to reach the surface.  You'll find the town of Zosa located
far to the north-east of the exit of Skure.

     Once again, take a look around town and scope out the shops, but
hold off on buying anything just yet.  When you're ready, teleport back
to Skure and get ready for the last trip!

     Trip #3:  Ryuon

     The last town isn't too hard to reach, as you already know half the
way there, whether you think you do or not.  Follow the directions from
Trip #2 all the way up until the point where you hit the left/right branch,
and went right for the Gardaboots (just near the exit to Zosa).  As you
may have guessed, take the left branch, and go down the chute at its end.

     Walk along the corridor to the east and south, and note that the
first passage left leads to a box containing 15,000 Meseta!  Grab it, then
continue south until you reach another passage leading off to the left.
Go in that direction, and ride up the chute at the dead-end.  The chute
directly to your south leads back up the surface!  You'll find the last
town, Ryuon, a good distance to the south and east of the exit to Skure.

     Once again, feel free to wander around town and scope out the
item and equipment shops.  Keep in mind that this is the last time you'll
ever have to purchase equipment, so stay calm!  ;)

     Upon visiting all three towns, you should start purchasing some
of this equipment.  The optimum equipment for each character is as
follows....

Rolf -->  Laconia Sword, Laconia Helmet, Garda Boots
Rudo -->  Laser Cannon, Laconia Gear, Garda Boots, Laconinish
Amy  -->  Laconia Emel, Hirza Boots
Hugh -->  Laconia Chest, Laconia Gear, Garda Boots
Anna -->  2 Laconia Slashers, Laconia Cape, Shune Boots
Kain -->  2 Laconia Maces, Laconinish, Laconia Helmet, Garda Boots
Shir -->  2 Laconia Daggers, Shune Boots

     On the surface around Ryuon is an ideal place to gain both
experience and meseta, and since you're right next to a town you don't
have to worry (as much) about getting killed.  I highly recommend staying
around and building up enough money to purchase all the equipment for the
characters you plan to use, as it will _really_ help out.  The monsters
on Dezo, as you've probably already seen, are tough.

     After purchasing your new equipment and gaining a few levels, we
should start searching for that person that Tyler spoke about.  He can be
found in the Esper Mansion, which is located across the Crevice.  This
can be accessed by traversing across the "Crevice" which is located near
the town of Aukba.  Stock up on Trimates if you need, then teleport back to
Aukba and set out for the Esper Mansion!



                        -/\/\/\->  Esper Mansion  <-/\/\/\-

     The "Crevice" is located to the southwest of Aukba.  To get there,
head west from Aukba until you hit the trees, then go southwest from there
to reach a giant gaping hole in the ground.  This is the "Crevice".  On
the eastern side of it is a small ramp that leads down to the bottom.
By going down into the Crevice and coming up the other side, we can get
to the Esper Mansion.

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Crevice                                                           |
|My Level:  Rolf L24, Rudo L21, Anna L21, Amy L20                  |
|Items:  <None>                                                    |
|Monsters:  Skytiara, Elephant, Aerotank, Ohx, Owltalon, Orangah,  |
|           Dezo Owl, Mastodon                                     |
-------------------------------------------------------------------*

     The Crevice isn't really big, and it doesn't contain any treasure.
It has several exits, and as you would guess, only one of them leads to
the Esper Mansion... the rest lead to dead-ends.  The monsters in here 
(for the most part) aren't any tougher than those outside, so you shouldn't
have to worry too much about getting through this dungeon alive.  However,
do your best to keep Rolf alive throughout the dungeon... if he is not alive
when you reach Esper Mansion you will not be able to get inside!

     Upon entering the Crevice, proceed to the left until you reach a
large pit.  Be careful not to fall down it, and walk around the north
side of the pit, and into the room to the north.  Descend the stairs, and
then follow the long, narrow, winding corridor to the southwest until you
reach another large room with some stairs leading back up.  Ignore these,
and continue along the corridor until you reach it's end, where there are
some stairs leading further down.  Descend once more, and continue along
the narrow winding corridor until you see some stairs leading back up.
Take these back upstairs, and walk along the corridor some more (rather
straight-forward, eh?), and ascend the stairs at the bottom-right corner.

     Once back up on the top floor, just go north, west, then south and
you'll reach the staircase that leads up out of the Crevice.  The Esper
Mansion is just a short walk away!  Once inside, walk forward and go
downstairs to meet the mysterious man known as Lutz, who has been in
a cryogenic sleep ever since the Mother Brain arrived in Algo.  However,
once Rolf and party arrive, Lutz will awaken and reveal to Rolf that he
was the one who saved Rolf's life during the accident that killed his
parents when Rolf was but 10 years old!

     He will also reveal that you are the last descendant of the heroine
Alis (whom, as we all know, was the heroine of the first Phantasy Star
game, and indeed the girl whom Rolf sees in his dream), and that Rolf
is the only one who can save the world from the enemy who is trying to
manipulate the Mother Brain.  He will also give you the "Aeroprism", a
magical item that allows you to see the four invisible dungeons that exist
on the planet Dezolis.  He also mentions the existence of eight "Nei"
items... special pieces of equipment said to be the most powerful of
their type of the world.  He instructs you to gather the eight Nei items,
then return to him.  After speaking with him, be sure to pick up the
Aeroprism in the chest!  =D

     As I said, there are four dungeons on Dezo, each containing two of
the Nei items.  As with the Dams, you can do the dungeons in any order
you please, but the order I recommend tackling them in due to complexity
and monsters fought is first Menobe, then Guaron, Ikuto, and finally
Naval.

     Head back to Aukba (either by walking or using the Ryuka technique
if you saved there), and then prepare for the journey!



                -/\/\/\->  Dungeons of Dezo, Part One  <-/\/\/\-

     The first dungeon, Menobe, is conveniently located just a short
ways to the west of Aukba.  Make sure you are prepared with Trimates and
any other equipment that you might need to purchase, then set out for
Menobe!

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Menobe                                                            |
|My Level:  Rolf L26, Rudo L24, Anna L24, Amy L23                  |
|Items:  Nei Crown, Storm Gear, Color Scarf, Nei Helmet            |
|Monsters:  Wrestler, Mystcape, Eletusk, Skytiara, Orangoo,        |
|           Darkside, Illusnst, Sakoff, Mr Death, Imagiomg,        |
|           Mxdragon, Glosword                                     | 
-------------------------------------------------------------------*

     Menobe consists of four reasonably complex floors, and is home to
a lot of the Dezolian Bio-monsters.  Like in all four of the dungeons
on Dezolis, Menobe contains two of the eight Nei items.. the Nei Crown
and the Nei Helmet.

     After entering Menobe, proceed up the long walkway to the north,
past the two statues.  You'll be on the north side of the floor (obviously),
and there are three staircases here.. one to your left, one to your right,
and one behind the enclosure to the north.  Take the left one upstairs to
floor two.  Head south into a fairly large room, and make your way to the
south-east corner.  There, you'll find a corridor leading along the edge
of the "sky".  Follow this corridor until you reach the far south-west
corner where there is a chest, which contains another Storm Gear.  Take
it, then retrace your steps, all the way back down to the first floor.

     This time, ascend the staircase on the right of the enclosure.  Follow
the path to the south until you reach a staircase (going down) at the south
edge of the floor.  Ignore it, and walk due east from the staircase until
you hit a statue.  From that statue, walk north into a room with staircases
leading up and down.  Take the one leading up to find a Colorscarf, then go
back down and return to the statue I just mentioned.  From there, walk to
the north-east, passing by another set of stairs.  Once you reach the
north-east corner, head left, and into the room to your south.  Ignore the
stairs in here as well.  Just to the south of the stairs are two statues
near a corner.  It would seem that the statues are blocking the path here,
but you can actually move around them by walking around their right side
(as in Climatrol, the path beneath them is so narrow that the wall conceals
it).  Using this little "shortcut", proceed into the room to the south
and west.

     You'll see some stairs leading up on the west side of this room.  Ignore
these, and go in to the small room to your north.  There are stairs leading
down here... descend them to reach a small isolated room on the first floor
with a chest containing the NEICROWN!  The Neicrown is the best piece of
head equipment for the ladies, I recommend equipping it to Amy to help out
her defense a bit.  The Nei Helmet (Neimet) is a bit harder to reach, so for
now I suggest teleporting out of here and returning to Aukba for a quick rest.

     Back at the entrance of Menobe (after having rested, and saved of course),
walk straight up to the staircases once again, and ascend the one behind the
enclosure (to get inside, just walk around to the north side).  Once upstairs,
walk north a short ways at the path will split left and right.  Go left, and
follow this path all the way around until you reach the west side of the
floor.  Continue south, ignoring the room off to your right.  Once you reach
the next large room, you'll find a staircase leading up in the (near about)
center of the room.  Ignore this one, and head due north into another room
with another staircase leading up.  Ascend this one up to floor 3, then
follow the path to the right, all the way around the outside of this floor,
until you reach the eastern side.

     At the very end of this path, you'll come to a stairway leading up to
the top floor.  Go upstairs, take a few steps right, then follow the corridor
to the south... once again, all the way around the outside of the floor.  As
soon as you get on the left side of the "sky barrier", look for a path leading
off to your west, and go in that direction to reach a staircase leading back
downstairs.  Use this one to go back downstairs, and take up your well-earned
treasure, the NEIMET!  The Neimet is the strongest piece of head equipment
in the game, and it is equippable by Rolf and Kain.  Since I didn't have Kain
in my party at this point, I equipped it on Rolf.  ^_^

     Now that you have the two Nei items in here, get the heck out of here
and head back to town and rest, and re-stock up on medicine.  Our next stop
is the dungeon of Guaron.  Monster-wise, it is slightly more difficult than
Menobe, and it is also the largest dungeon in the game, hosting no less than
16 floors!  Fortunately, most of them are one-room floors, similar to the
lower levels of Climatrol.  Guaron is located near the town of Ryuon, so,
whenever you're ready, use the teleport station to quickly scoot back to Ryuon.
You'll find Guaron in the north-east corner of the Ryuon "area"... it's quite
a distance to the north of the actual town.

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Guaron                                                            |
|My Level:  Rolf L28, Rudo L27, Anna L27, Amy L26                  |
|Items:  Amber Robe, Laconinish, Crystal Chest, Nei Cape,          |
|        Crystal Cape, Nei Armor                                   |
|Monsters:  Skytiara, Wrestler, Mystcape, Eletusk, Orangoo,        |
|           Darkside, Sakoff, Mesoman, Mxdragon, Firefall,         |
|           Frdragon, Vorcano, Kinglava, Darkside                  |
-------------------------------------------------------------------*

     Though Guaron consists of 16 (!) floors, the layout thankfully isn't
too complex.  Upon entering Guaron, move to the west along the outside of
the actual dungeon, and you'll reach a remote set of rooms in the far
south-west corner.  Move all the way to the west, and in the far southwest
room you'll find a treasure chest containing a Laconinish.  Take it, then
backtrack to where you started, and move north into the "actual dungeon".

     At the first intersection, go right, and follow the corridor all the
way around to the top, where you will find an Amber Robe.  Take it, then
go back to the intersection and continue north, where you'll reach another
intersection.  Here, go left, north, then left again until you reach the
outside area in the north-west corner.  This is a maze-like sea of trees,
and the only thing I can tell you here is first move west through the
center, then make south as soon as you can.  You'll first come to a room
with four staircases, but all lead to the same dead-end room.  Instead,
move right from the entrance to that room, and enter the next room on the
right.  In this circular room is a stairway leading up... ascend it to
floor 2.

     Here, you'll learn the basic layout of the majority of the floors
in Guaron... a small circular room with a pit in the center, and two
staircases.  However, there is a bit more to explore on this floor.  Take
the right exit from this room, and you'll see a north/south junction.
Go north, then follow the corridor around the outside of the floor until
you see a path leading off to the east.  Go that way, and enter the next
small room which holds a stairway leading down and a treasure chest
containing a Crystal Chest.  Take the chest, then head back to the initial
room (the one with the pit and staircases).  Using the various stairs in
the identical-looking rooms, ascend all the way up to floor 8.  If you
happen to lose count, you'll know it when you see it.. like floor 2, it is
different from the others.

     On floor 8, you'll notice a path in the south-west corner leading off
to a maze-like series of passages in the southwest.  There are two distinct
paths from the pit/stairs room... to the south and west.  Go west, and
follow along the path until you reach the bottom, where there will be a
left/right junction.  Go left once again, and after a bit of walking you'll
come to a treasure chest containing the NEICAPE!  The Nei Cape is the best
Cape-type piece of armor, equippable by the ladies.  I recommend giving
it to either Anna or Amy.

     After getting the treasure, make your way back to the pit/stairs room,
and ascend to floor 9.  Take the eastern exit from this room to reach
another maze-like room filled with trees.  First head south to the south
edge of the floor, then all the way right to the east edge.  Then go north
a little ways, then back left to reach the room in the center of the floor,
which contains a Crystal Cape.  After getting it, return once more to the
pit/stairs room.  Now, ascend all the way up to floor 16... the top floor.

     Here, all you have to do is make your way into the room in the middle
and take the treasure chest.  However, be careful as the enemies on the
top floor of Guaron are VERY strong.  The chest contains the NEIARMOR, the
best suit of armor in the game, equippable by Rudo and Kain.  This should
be equipped on Rudo.  And now, we have the two Nei treasures in this
dungeon, so teleport out of here and head back to town for a well-deserved
rest.  4 down, and 4 to go!



                -/\/\/\->  Dungeons of Dezo, Part Two  <-/\/\/\-

     Our next stop is the dungeon of Ikuto, located near the town of Zosa.
Ikuto is by far my least favorite dungeon in the game, as the layout is
simply horrible, and without a map or directions you can get lost and stay that
way for ages in here.  Come prepared with a full load of Trimates... you
may need them.

     Ikuto is located far to the west of Zosa.  It's to the north of the
exit leading to Skure, in the midst of the mountains.

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Ikuto                                                             |
|My Level:  Rolf L30, Rudo L28, Anna L28, Amy L27                  |
|Items:  Laconia Dagger, Plasma Cannon, Fire Staff, Laconia Mace,  |
|        Nei Shot, Nei Slasher                                     |
|Monsters:  Darkside, Glosword, Mesoman, Wrestler, Mystcape,       |
|           Frdragon, Lung, Owltalon, Sakoff, Desrona, Wizard,     |
|           Capeone, Mr Death, Shadow                              |
-------------------------------------------------------------------*

     Put simply, Ikuto is a nightmare.  It consists of seven floors, and
the only way to go down to the next floor is by falling into pits.  The
floors get bigger as they go down, and your objective is to fall into the
correct pits to get where you need to go.  However, since there are so
damn many pits around, it's ridiculously easy to get lost.  Once you hit
the bottom floor, there is a series of stairways you can use to get back
up, but I've found it's just easier to use the Hinas technique.  -_-

     Thus, I've provided locations to each of the treasures from the
starting point.  I've found it's the easiest way to get through here...
just wandering around and falling down random pits will just get you lost.
After obtaining each, just use the Hinas technique to quickly escape Ikuto,
then move onto the next.  ^_^

)Laconia Dagger/Plasma Cannon(
     You can get both of these in one shot.  On floor 1, fall down the
middle pit, then go south.  Fall down the middle pit once again, go northeast,
grab the chest to find the Laconia Dagger.  Fall down the pit directly
to the northwest of the Laconia Dagger, then follow the corridor _all_
the way to the south and west until you reach the dead-end, where you'll
find a Plasma Cannon in a chest.

)Laconia Mace(
     On Floor 1, fall down the left pit.  Make for the south edge of this
floor, and fall down the pit along the south wall.  Walk west, past two
pits, and then north.  You'll come to a pit at a dead-end... fall down it.
Now fall down the pit directly to your southwest.  Now head for the south
edge of the room you're in and pick up the chest to get your Laconia Mace.

)Fire Staff(
     On Floor 1, fall down the right pit.  Then fall down the pit directly
to your south, then walk south and you'll see three more pits.  Fall down
the one on your left, and on the next floor you'll see one pit directly to
your north, and one to the left.  Fall down the one on the left, then walk
south, and follow the long winding corridor until you reach it's end, where
the chest containing the Fire Staff is.

)Nei Shot(
     On the top floor, fall down the middle pit.  Walk south, fall down the
pit on the left, then fall down the pit directly to your left.  From here
go east, north, then west again, past a pit, until you reach the dead-end,
where another pit is.  Fall down this one, and you'll be in a small room
with pits in each corner.  Fall in the pit in the north-west corner, then
move west to collect your prize, the NEISHOT!  This is the best gun in the
game, and of course should be equipped on Rudo!  =)

)Nei Slasher(
     On the top floor, first fall down the left pit.  Walk south, then
fall in the next pit you come to.  Go left to find three more pits... once
again fall down the one on the left.  Make your way left past a few pits until
you hit the wall, then go north to reach a pit in the far north-west corner.
Fall down this one, then go north to the NW corner, then east to the NE
corner.  Go south to find yet three more pits.  This time fall down the
middle one, then make your way all the way to the southern edge of this room
to find the chest containing the NEISLASHER!  This is the best slasher weapon
in the game, and should be equipped on Anna.

     Whew!  That's everything... now teleport out of here and be glad that
you never have to suffer through this dungeon again.  -_-

     The last two Nei treasures are in the dungeon of Naval.  Even though
structure-wise Naval is the least complicated of the four, the monsters
contained within are extremely strong.  There is also no town near Naval,
and it's a pain in the arse to get to, so I tend to save it for last.
Naval is located out the fourth exit of Skure, so head back to the
nearest town, make sure you are completely ready and have re-stocked up
on Trimates, and then use the teleport station to teleport to Skure.
Here we go!

     Starting from the center of Skure as always, follow the corridor to
the north, and then take the first branch off to the left.  From here
make your way south and west, to the south-west corner of the floor,
where there is a chute leading down.  Go downstairs, and you'll be at
a T-junction with paths leading off to the north, south, and east... all
of which lead to chutes leading down to the bottom floor.  Go south,
ride the chute downstairs, and follow the corridor north and west, until
you see a path leading off to the south.  That path leads to a dead-end
where a box containing 18,000 Meseta can be found!

     Grab the money, then go back north, and continue west until you
reach some stairs leading back up.  Go back upstairs, and there will be
paths to the north and east.  First go east to find a pair of boxes, one
of which contains 12,000 Meseta!  Then go back and take the north path,
and at the intersection, continue north and up the stairs to reach the
surface of Dezo.  From here, Naval is just a not-so-short walk to the
south-east... it is located in the far south-east reach of this area
of Dezo.  Now let's check this place out!

*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Naval                                                             |
|My Level:  Rolf L32, Rudo L30, Anna L30, Amy L29                  |

-------------------------------------------------------------------*

     The layout of Naval is actually quite simple, but it can be a bit
repetitive.  It consists of five floors, mostly comprised of huge pits, with
catwalks of corridors circling the outside.  All the treasure in the
dungeon is on the second floor, and to get to them, you must fall from the
top floor, down to the second.  There are four "sections" on the second
floor... "north", "south", "east", and "west", and to get to each, you
must fall from the respective side of the pit on the fifth floor.  For
example, if you want to reach the "west" section of floor 2, you'll have
to fall off the "west" side of the pit on the top floor.  However, another
thing to note is that it _does_ matter which side you fall off on!  If you
are on the "north" side, for example, you will have to walk east off the
pit in order to land on the "island" below.  The rule here is... take
the side you're on "north/south/east/west", and go clockwise one direction.
This is the direction you'll need to walk off.  Thus, North = East,
East = South, South = West, and West = North.

     So, here's what you do.  Upon entering Naval you'll find yourself
outside the actual "dungeon" area.  The layout is circular, and to get
inside, just walk a short ways to the north and enter the break in the
wall on the western side.  There are two stairways on the bottom floor..
one in the upper-left, and one in the lower-right.  The one in the
upper-left lets you access the south and east sides of the pit, while the
one in the lower-right lets you access the north and west sides of the
pit.  After going up, all you have to do is follow the straight-forward
path all the way to the top (the issue here is not getting killed by
the monsters along the way).  On the top floor, there will be four
catwalks extending out into the middle of the pit (from the north, south,
west, and east sides of course).  Just walk out onto the very edge of
the catwalk then jump into the pit (again, make sure you falling off
in the right direction!), and you will be dumped down to the floor below.
Keep walking off in the same direction, and you'll end up on the respective
section on floor two, where there is treasure waiting!

     NORTH:  NEISHIELD
     WEST:  TRIMATE, TRUTH SLEEVES
     EAST:  LACON EMEL, GREEN SLEEVES, MIRROR EMEL
     SOUTH:  NEI EMEL

     Remember, use the lower-right stairs to get to the "South" and "East"
sections, and the upper-left stairs to get to the "North" and "West"
sections.  As I said, this dungeon is just a matter of not getting killed
by the monsters.  Also, don't be afraid to go back to town and rest if
you're hurt... the monsters around here can be quite tough, and the
treasure can wait.  Even so, you'll want to Save with the Visiphone every
once in a while... getting caught off-guard, even when you think your 
party is healthy, can be extremely dangerous.  The two Nei treasures in
here are the NEISHIELD, located in the north... and the NEI EMEL, located
in the south.  Both are the best "free-hand" equipment in the game... the
Nei Emel is only equippable by Anna, and if you have Kain and are willing 
to sacrifice one of his weapons, feel free to equip him with the Shield.
Otherwise, just hold onto it.

     At last, we have all eight of the Nei items!  Make one last trip back
to Aukba to heal up and re-stock on Trimates, and get ready for the final
battle!  If you haven't paid much attention your levels lately, you may
want to hang around and gain experience for a while.  Though it probably
seems a bit high, Rolf gains the "Megid" technique at level 35... this is
a very useful technique, and the most powerful one in the game, even
though it's power does come at the expense of some of your party's HP.  It's
nothing a little healing can't fix, but if you plan on using it, bring
along a Star Mist to compensate.  In fact, if you are low on Star Mists,
you may want to go back to Paseo on Mota and have Shir attempt to steal
some from the Item shops.  It will probably take a while, but they will
be greatly helpful in the final battle!



                    -/\/\/\->  The Final Battlefield  <-/\/\/\-
 
     When you're finally ready, head across the Crevice once again, and
re-enter Esper Mansion.  Now that you have all eight Nei items, Lutz will
acknowledge you as a true descendant of Alis and tell you his story.  After
her battle 1000 years ago, Algo shortly obtained peace, but after Mother
Brain was created, the people became dependent on it and forgot what they
really needed.  Meanwhile, someone set a "trap" in Mother Brain to weaken
the minds of the people of Algo, and eventually destroy it.  Lutz then
gives you the ninth and final Nei item... the Nei Sword, the ultimate
weapon.  Pick it and equip it to Rolf (darn nice weapon might I add!),
then talk to Lutz once more.

     When he asks you his question, answer "No" and he will fully heal
your party.  Now go back and say "Yes", and he will transport you to the
final battlefield, Noah!!



*------------------------------------------------------------------*
|Noah -- The Final Battlefield                                     |
|My Level:  Rolf L35, Rudo L34, Anna L34, Amy L33                  |
|Items:  <None>                                                    |

-------------------------------------------------------------------*

     *NOTE*  If at any time you wish to exit Noah, use the Nei Sword and
you will automatically be transported back to the Esper Mansion.  Use this
in if you are in dire need of healing!

     Noah consists of two floors, and though they are rather large, it isn't
really the most complicated of dungeons.  The monsters you fight are
obviously the strongest in the game, but no stronger than what you have
already seen, especially in Naval.  There are no treasures, either... your
only task here is to find the Mother Brain and whoever... or whatever... is
trying to destroy Algo!

     You start at a left/right junction of paths, both of which lead to
stairs.  Go right, and follow along the path until you reach the dead-end,
and climb the stairs there.  Once upstairs, go left and down the other set
of stairs, then move left, and take the path leading off to the north.  Walk
until you reach another room.  You'll see a stairway off to the south, but
ignore it.  Move further north and take the path leading off to the west,
and ascend the stairs at the end.  Now walk north through a large open room,
and descend the stairs near the north wall.

     You'll be at a left/right junction once again.  Go left, and walk
until you reach another stairway.  Go back up, then walk north until you
hit the wall, then east, past a staircase.  Descend the staircase near the
far right wall, then walk north a short ways and up the next stairway.
Walk along the corridor some more, descend once again, then go north, back
up, north again, back down again (tired yet?), then go south and west into
a larger room.  Take the stairs furthest to the north in this room, then
go west and follow the corridor until you reach the dead-end, and descend
the stairs.  In the next room, go west until you hit the wall, then go up
through a narrow corridor until you reach another larger room.  Now heal
yourself up and prepare for one of those rare boss fights!

     To the north, you'll see a treasure chest blocking the path?  What's
this?  Open it up and you'll find this isn't a treasure at all!  This is
another trap!  This box contains an evil entity known as Dark Force, and
now that you have released it, it attacks!!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
= Boss Battle:  Dark Force                        =
- Hit Points:  2,560                              -
= Attack Power:  320        Defense Power:  30    =
- Experience:  2,222        Meseta:  0            -
= Special:  Possess an ally                       =
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

     Yeek!  This thing is huge, and to make matters worse, it takes up so
much of the screen that you can't tell how much damage you're doing to it!
Dark Force has 2,560 HP but this information obviously doesn't help you
a bit, considering you can't see how much damage you're doing!  All I can
say here is just attack with your weapons... unless you're planning on
warping back to Esper Mansion after the battle try to conserve Rolf's TP.
If not, use the Megid technique to immediately knock off a good bit of Dark
Force's HP, then have someone use a Star Mist to heal your party back up.
Afterwards, have Rolf repeatedly throw out the NAFOI technique.  Dark Force
has an extremely annoying ability that causes one party member to become
'Evil', unable to do anything until the condition wears off.  Even more
annoying, this can cause the inflicted character to lose their ability to
use technique, which can make a REAL mess.  And if that weren't enough, they
may also search through and/or steal items from other party members, usually
healing items like Star Mists which are crucial to the battle.  After a
round, the Nei Sword may emit a bright light, which dispells the 'Evil'
condition from any afflicted party members.  Dark Force's other attack, an 
electricity beam which damages all party members, is also very damaging, and
should be countered with a Star Mist or a GISAR technique.  This will be
quite a lengthy battle due to Dark Force's high amount of HP, but provided
you have enough TP and/or healing items, you should be able to win.

     After the battle, use the Nei Sword to go back to Esper Mansion and
rest up and, more importantly, SAVE the game.  Once you're healed and
ready, trek through Noah once again and make your way back to where the
chest used to be.  Head north and you'll be at yet another left/right
junction.  Head right, and then up the staircase that you come to.  Upstairs,
follow along the corridor a bit more, and soon you'll end up at the Mother
Brain.  The "Mother Brain" will appear and you'll be asked if you choose to
fight.  If you're not yet ready, say 'No' and you'll be able to heal and/or
prepare better for the fight.  Once you're ready say 'Yes' and the Mother
Brain will proclaim that if she were to malfunction, the people of Algo
would die, since they have become so dependant on her.  She asks once again
for you to change your mind.  Say 'No' and the fight will begin!!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
= Final Battle:  Mother Brain                     =
- Hit Points:  2,450                              -
= Attack Power:  228        Defense Power:  128   =
- Experience:  0            Meseta:  0            -
= Special:  Attack all allies with Nova attack    =
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

     Once again, Mother Brain is so large that you won't be able to tell
how much damage you are doing to her.  Mother Brain is actually considerably
weaker than Dark Force... her Attack Power and HP are lower, and she doesn't
have that incredibly annoying possession skill, but her defense is a bit
higher.  Just as you did in the battle before, start off by having Rolf
throw out the Megid technique, and have someone else use a Star Mist to
repair the damage.  Then, have Rolf cast Nafoi while Amy heals the party,
either with Star Mists or the GISAR technique.  Everyone else should attack.
Mother Brain will either attack one or all of your party members with her
Nova attack, and though it deals quite a bit of damage, it still isn't as
powerful as Dark Force's attack.  Just keep up your attack, and given enough
TP, you should be able to defeat her.

     After defeating Mother Brain, well.. you've won!  I'm not going to
spoil the ending for you, so just sit back and watch the rest of it... you've
surely earned it.  Congratulations!
