Starter guide by ShadowX

========================================================================
====


The game is set in a desert.
The town, Monsbire, is located next to the Demon Tower, beside a lake.
This ensures the town is able to live well in the desert with its water
supply.

The game start menu has 3 selections:
        Load/continue game
        Start a new game
        Options

Controls within the game is described as you use them. As you press a
button in the tower, your
monster servant will describe the use of it.

As you start a new game, a angel appears. He speaks, telling you about 
your
birth.
Next choose a name for yourself.

The game starts with your birth. The whole intro takes you through your 
past 
until 15-years-old. You get whack awake by your sisters. Next, goto the 
main 
room and speak with the long-eyebrow-old-man. He tells you about the 
tower
and leaves.
Your mother gives you a apple that refills MP. Then you set off for the 
tower.
Explore if you would, but you cannot buy anything as you're broke.

Go North and enter the tower. A monster will come and greet you. He'll 
join
you as the first 
monster servant.
With in the first stage, there are many things to collect. The map is
default and its the
training level. All other levels will be different from each other. Each

time you climb the
tower, you'll enter a new map, making things less boring if you die too
many times.
Each time you die, you end up back home, moneyless and level goes back 
to
the original level
you entered the tower with. And some monsters disappear.

As you press the buttons, your servant will lists its uses. Go around 
and
collect the different
loot, like a sword, shield, egg, orb, etc... The egg is used by 
selecting
it in the inventory
and use it. Press Circle multiple times to warm the egg. When it reached

100%, it hatches.

Once on the second level, you're on your own.

Hints for battle.

*       Use AI level 4 or 5 for fast killing of monsters.
*       Use AI 3 if you feel like gaining level, as 4 or 5 takes up more 
MP. And
        your monster
        sleeps when its MP is zero.
*       Feeling low on HP? Walk around in a room, not too many steps or 
else         
        you'll attract
        monsters. Every 6-7 steps will refill 1 HP.
*       Use items often. You only have limited space, and each monster, 
weapon
        and armor takes
        up one slot.
*       To get out, find the crystal of Wind. It looks like Nakoruru's 
ice
        crystal. It takes
        you back with your items, exp and alive.
*       When you get a few monsters, try to morph them together. Some 
can, some
        cannot.
        Try to save before morphing to see results. Sometimes, the 
results are worse 
        than before. A good starter is the first monster, with a 
rider(the one you
        saw the
        main character riding).
