    Complete Ending
    ```````````````
    By a complete ending, this merely means everyone is seen safe at the end.  To
    do this you must take this route:
    
    At the first intersection, go straight.  This will lead you to Tender Hamlet.
    At the next intersection, take the bottom route.  This will lead you to the
    Cave Of Crystal.  Continue on and you will automatically end up on Blood 
    Street.  At the next intersection, take the bottom route.  This will take you
    to A Voyage To Castle.  There, you will come across another intersection.
    Again, take the bottom route.  You will now automatically lead to the Cursed
    City.  From there you will go to The Gate Of Fate and finish the game.  On
    the way, make sure you save all 10 prisoners.  If you do this correctly you
    will see all your team mates and prisoners at the end.
