Brigandine Quests FAQ Version 0.90
(and other little stuff)
Updated: 12/23/98

Collected and written up by Anthony Nguyen, aka Luxion

Brigandine was released in the states in 1998 by Atlus.  What other credits do I 
need?

This is my first FAQ that I've written up for distribution.  I'm collecting 
information for a few other games: Front Mission 2 and SD Gundam G Generation.  
Hopefully those will be distributed someday, but they are far too imcomplete.

12/23/98:  I've updated the FAQ with other people's assistance (2 others).  I've
almost completed the game with Leonia.  When I feel I've written up all BASIC
quests, I'll update this FAQ to ver 1.0.  I've also taken out anything I've said
about Prima's guide.  I feel like it is advertising and do not want to get into 
any trouble.

12/18/98:  Well, I see that there are more FAQs for Brigandine.  Guess I don't 
have to work in-depth on a monster stat chart if that's coming along.  I guess 
I'll stick with quests.  Right now, I'm playing as Leonia on Hard difficulty 
(more challenge, kinda).  I'll continue to keep track of "chats" in battles as 
well, for whatever reason :)


Review:  Brigandine is a strategic/tactical game (my type of game).  It requires
  management of troops (1 leader and up to 6 monsters), positioning of those troops
  on a large map with 40 castles.  Battles take place at individual castles and is
  fought on a hexagon map.  Attacks by individual units is shown in a different
  screen, similar to the Shining Force series (one of my favorites), except
  Brigandine uses 3-D models.  You have a 50 year time limit, 12 months each year,
  which means you have 600 turns to complete the game by wiping out all opposition.
  There are 6 countries in this game, and only 5 which are playable.  Each has their
  own reasons for fighting and their own selection of Knights, each with interesting
  stories.

  a dragon.  Sometimes the Knight will find an item in the dragon's footprint.

Special Character Quests (possible spoilers):
***************

Rune Knight's Name (Starting affiliation):
   Quest description

Lucia (Iscalio):
   Quest 1:
   She visits an injured boy who cannot walk because he was struck by an arrow.

   Quest 2:
   She visits the boy again, but this time finds the boy walking (kind of).  
   She confesses that it was she who had fired that arrow, but the boy knew it 
   all along and thanks her because if it wasn't for "that incident", the two 
   would have never been friends.  
   Most all of Lucia's attributes go up as a result of this.  Her profile updates.

Loufal (New Almekia):
   When Loufal reaches level 10 and changes to a Calvalier class, on his quest, 
   he will return to his home and talk to his mother.  She will give him his 
   father's sword, the "Mithril Sword".
   (Well, that's the sword she gave me...)

Miguel (Iscalio):
   Miguel will return to his home and find a letter addressed to him, left by 
   his brother Castor.  It basically talks about the family situation, and how all 
   three children are split up, but want to be a family again.  No game gains, 
   just story development.

Georg (none):
   Having announced staying sober, he gets lost in a forest and finds a fountain 
   of liquor.  Though tempted, he is able to stay sober.  It was a test set up by 
   his deceased fiance, Rierre.  Rierre's ghost and Georg chat.  Rierre wants Georg 
   to move on, so she makes him forget her and gives him, "Rierre's Ring".

Hyude (none):
   Month 1:
   Hyude gets lost, runs out of food, and is exhausted to the point of death.
   Luckily some elves find him and nurse him back to health.  The female elf, 
   Peryner, and Hyude fall in love and he spends some time with her.

   Month 2:
   Report of a human battle close to the hidden elven village reminds Hyude of
   his duties as a Rune Knight, and so he returns to prove himself.  Peryner waits,
   but her brother, Limlight (Level 5 Mage), goes with Hyude to see things for
   himself.

Millia (Caerleon):
   Millia will recruit Eloute (Level 11 Samurai) into King Cai's army.

Millia and Eloute (Caerleon):
   *Both must quest
   Both will visit their friend Gush and recruit him as well (Level 11 Monk).

Millia, Eloute, and Gush (Caerleon):
   *All three must quest
   Millia takes the two guys to her friend Lecarra (Level 16 Mystic) who joins
   for fun (to tease the guys).

Mira and Millet (Esgares):
   *Both must quest
   Month 1:
   Both return to a village close to their hometown to pay their respects to
   to their deceased parents and to visit their nanny.  Unfortunately, they run
   into trouble and face a Salamander which mortally wounds Mira.  The peope of
   the village do not help because of an old legend about twins.  Millet is
   knocked out and both are thrown out into the cold...

   Month 2:
   Millet awakens to find Mira and herself healed by Carmine, a man of medicine.
   They also find their nanny who is in a coma and being taken care of by the
   doctor.  The nanny awakens to encourage the twins to live and rebuild the
   family name.  Carmine continues to watch over the nanny and the twins part
   with the keepsake of their mother, the "Pin of Protection (Defense)"
