Created by Leland3 (Leland_Cador@yahoo.com)

Hello, everyone! This is my very first attempt to make a FAQ so please bear 
with me if you see any mistakes or errors. I'll try to fix and add more 
stuffs as I go on. I want to cover all the recruitable characters for this
 game, also I'll give the information about the secret class "Ninja", 
as well as how to play as the secret country "Esgares", how to get Lance
class "King". 
Email me if you have any comments, questions or found any error in this 
FAQ. Please note that in this guide I'll not write about the characters you 
start with in each countries, or I'll not write about the characters stat 
growth. Just how to recruit the characters you can get on your play! 
I hope people will enjoy this game even more with this guide, 
and have all characters you can have in your playing.  Enjoy ;)

This FAQ was created to help people to know how exactly you need to 
do to get one character (I've seen many discussions, almost all of them 
are wrong methods some bad people made up to mislead other people 
into wasting their time without being able to get the character he 
wanted). And also credit me or let me know if you are going to use 
this FAQ elsewhere.

1) Intro:

There are four types of charactes in this game: Special event 
characters that only  a specific country can have, Quest characters 
that you get after sending your knight to do quest and complete the 
requirements, Battle Event Knights and Characters that you will 
get after 1 country is defeated.

Note: In game play, press Select, Option, choose BATTLE SCENE
and SUMMON/CLASS as OFF to turn off the animation.

Special Note: This game is a different game, it's not the same as 
Brigandine Grand Edition, so don't apply the method in this

only get Carmine.

- After meeting her, reduce your castle numbers to 1-2, have the knight

total 140 monsters, she'll come to the castle of the knight met her and 
join.

3) Battle Event Knights
a. Schutleis: Requirement: The first country to capture a castle
from Esgares.
b. The Rand family: They are Miguel from Iscalio, Liguel from
 New Almekia and Castor from Esgares. If they meet their 
sibling in battle without any special conversation 
(such as Lance meet Zemeckis in battle for the first time), 
they'll chat and one of them may leave his/her country 
to join up with his/her sibling.

If Liguel meet Castor in battle, Castor will join up with Liguel.
If Miguel meet Liguel in battle, Liguel will join up with Miguel.
If Liguel & Castor meet Miguel in battle, Miguel will join up with 
Liguel & Castor.
If Liguel meet Castor & Miguel in battle, Castor & Miguel will 
join up with Liguel.
If Liguel & Miguel meet Castor in battle, Castor will join up 
with Liguel & Miguel.
If Miguel meet Castor in battle, Miguel & Liguel are in the 
same country, Castor will join up with Miguel, but if Miguel 
& Liguel are not in the same country, nothing will happen. 

4) Knights you get after one country is defeated

When you defeat one country, you will get:
(Esgares can get all knights in this case)

Defeated country                                You get

New Almekia                                     Carlota

                                                Soleil*

*Soleil: You can only have him if you have Schutleis and he is 
at one castle (not doing quest) at the time you defeat Esgares.

When other country defeat one country, it's randomly that 
you may get these knights (if you dont get them, reset, send
few knights to quest so that the random rate change and you may get 
these knights. In this game, the battle formation won't affect the random
rate in this case):

Note: If you choose New Almekia or Caerleon and you have not broken the
alliance, when your ally (Caerleon if you choose NA, NA if you choose 
Caerleon) destroy one country, you wont get any knight in this case, except
Miguel and Castor from the Rand family when you choose NA.

(Esgares can't get any knights in this case)

Defeated country                                You get

New Almekia                                     Adilicia

Caerleon                                        Cierra
                                                Shast

Leonia                                          Charlene
                                                Isfas
                                                Raizen***

Nogard                                          Ector
                                                Faticia
                                                Zerafin

Iscalio                                         Bagdemagus***
                                                Teath

Esgares                                         Meltorefas
                                                Shred**

**Shred: To make Shred appear: 
- Esgares must not lose Logres until its castle numbers is reduced to at
most two, or Shred will never appear.
- After the first condition is met, anytime Logres is captured and Esgares
is not destroyed, Shred will appear in Esgares army.

***: Raizen and Bagdemagus are two special characters. Any time their
country is defeated by another country (not you), you may randomly get them.
For example: You defeated Iscalio, Bagdemagus joined Nogard, then Esgares 
defeat Nogard, Bagdemagus may join you.

Also, when his/her country is defeated, the Rand family 
(Liguel, Miguel, Castor) will randomly join the country that has his/ her 
sibling, no matter what country defeat his/her country.

L2+R1+Start at the same time at the Selecting Country Screen, 
right after the Start Continue screen.
a. Carmine: Requirement: 
- Send both Mira & Millet to quest at the same time, 1/6 chance.

11) Secret Class Ninja:
When you have Shiraha in your country, your male knights with 
lvl >= 10, str >= 65 and agi >= 70 can change into Ninja class. 
That means, if you play as Esgares, you can change some of 
your knights to Ninja right away. If you play as another country, 
you'll have to defeat Esgares and get Shiraha.

The Ninja class requires 10 lvl to advance to the 
Ninja Master class, the first 5 lvl in Ninja class won't give you 
any star, the later 5 lvl will give you stars as any normal class. 
The Ninja Master class requires 5 lvl to reach Expert status as normal class.

+Note: Shiraha is an exception to this rule, as he's starting at 
lvl 14 Ninja with 4 stars.
++Note: You can train your knights to become Ninja - Ninja Master 
right after you have Shiraha, you DONT NEED to train Shiraha to Exprert 
status or to train him to Ninja Master, it's just false rumor bad people 
made to waste your time.

12) Lance class King
Lance is the ruler of New Almekia, he's starting at lvl 1 Prince.
To make his class change to King, the requirements are:
- Esgares is destroyed (any country destroy it would be fine)
- New Almekia has Logres castle.

13) Maximum number of  Knights for each country
Well I've decided to put it here for someone who loves numbers. When you 
choose a country that is not Esgares, there are 15 quest knights you can 
get, together with Schutleis = 16. 
If you destroy a country, you get: 
New Almekia = 2
Nogard = 2
Leonia = 2
Caerleon = 2
Iscalio = 2
Esgares = 3

If you let other country destroy a country, you get:
New Almekia = 2
Nogard = 3
Leonia = 3
Caerleon = 2
Iscalio = 2
Esgares = 2

Also, if you choose New Almekia, Iscalio or Esgares, you will get 2 more
from the Rand family. 
Remember, when you destroy the last country, you get
some knights but you wont have the chance to check your lastest knight 
numbers.

For the knight numbers originally from 1 country, New Almekia has 
15 knights, one of them is Halley who will leave when you have at 
least 26 castles; Leonia has 14; Nogard has 15; Caerleon has 12; Iscalio has
12, Esgares has 19.

1 in the last category will be Bagdemagus, as he may randomly join you
anytime his country is defeated by another country.

a. New Almekia: 
Maximum knight numbers = 15 + 16 + 14 =45: the highest
knight numbers in this game.
I spent time to achieve it, here's my save file:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=MEIGLUS2

How I got it: First I destroyed Iscalio and got 2 knights, Bagdemagus joined
Leonia. Then I let Leonia destroyed Nogard, I got 3 knights. Then I broke 
the alliance with Caerleon and let Caerleon destroy Leonia, I got 4 knights
(one of them is Bagdemagus).
Then I destroyed Esgares and get 5 knights from them (2 of them are the
Rand family). On the map there was Caerleon left and I did not have 26
castles yet. Then, did some more quests to get Mira, Millet, Rain, 
Rangunius, Carmine, Shiraha and got 45 knights. 
At the end of the game, I had 44 knights (Halley left), destroyed 
Caerleon got me 2 more.

b. Nogard
Maximum knight numbers = 15 + 16 + 11 = 42

How to get it: Destroy Iscalio yourself, destroy Esgares yourself, let
another country destroys Leonia, let another country destroys the country
has Bagdemagus. 

The last enemy country on the map should be Caerleon or New Almekia, you 
get 2 knights when you destroy it.

c. Caerleon
12 + 16 + 12 = 40

How to get it: Destroy Iscalio yourself, destroy Esgares yourself, let
another country destroys Leonia, let another country destroys the country
has Bagdemagus, let another country destroys Nogard. 

The last enemy country on the map should be New Almekia, you get 2 knights
when you destroy it.

d. Iscalio
12 + 16 + 13 = 41

How to get it: Destroy Esgares yourself, let another country destroys Leonia,
let another country destroys Nogard, destroy New Almekia or let another 
country destroy New Almekia (to get all the Rand family in your country) . 

The last enemy country on the map should be Caerleon, you get 2 knights 
when you destroy it.

e. Leonia
14 + 16 + 11 = 41

How to get it: Destroy Iscalio yourself, destroy Esgares yourself, let 
another country destroys the country has Bagdemagus, let another country
destroys Nogard. 

The last enemy country on the map should be Caerleon or New Almekia, you 
get 2 knights when you destroy it.

f. Esgares

19 + 1 + 8 + 2 = 30 

How to get it: You must destroy all coutries on the map your own.

The last enemy country on the map should be Caerleon, Leonia or Nogard,
you get 2 knights when you destroy it.

14) Easy leveling tips for you low level knights/ monsters

Easy, simply. When you reduce the castle number of one country to 1, dont
destroy it immediately. Try to trap it in a two ways position, such
as this: Your castle - Its castle - Your castle. Place the knight or 
monster you wish to train there, each turn attack the castle, use Halo on the
one you want to train and let him/ it kills off two knights without killing
the Ruler of that country, each turn you would gain about 4000 exp for
your low level knights and he would be at level 30 very soon.

Knights with Halo spell: Cleric - Lector - Saint; Mystic - Sage; 
Bishop - Cardinal.
Monsters with Halo spell: Pegasus; Arch Angel - Seraph - Lucifer.
