     -Me and the FAQ-
    
      Hi!  Actually this is my first walkthrough but I really want this to look 
    good.  The reason why I chose to make a walkthrough on Threads of Fate mainly 
    is that because there are no walkthroughs that are specifically written for 
    the North American Version as of August 7, 2000.  Maybe, I also created this 
    because Threads of Fate is a relatively short game (about 24 hours of game 
    play).
    
      I also included paragraphs in almost all or all parts of the game that 
    talks about the story of the game (enclosed by these - *story*).  They are 
    SPOILERS so I suggest that you should not read them unless 1) You have 
    finished the game or that section already or 2) You did not understand the 
    story at that part.
    
     -Others and the FAQ-
    
      Everyone is welcome to read and keep this document.  This can also be sent 
    or given to anyone without notice to me as long as it is NOT
       1) used for commercial or profitable reasons
       2) given for free in order to sell a product 
       3) altered or ripped off 
    
      and that be sure that the author and especially all those who contributed 
    in this document are credited (I really took time doing this and I deserve it 
    [I think {sigh!}] and the ones that contributed too!)
    
      I am not perfect.  I make mistakes somewhere here and somewhere there.  I 
    also miss a lot of things, specially hard to get items or side-quests that 1) 
    requires you to go back to a dungeon you already finished or 2) requires you 
    to talk to a person or to several persons in order to trigger the quest.  
    Please correct me from my mistakes.  Also, if you want to add/contribute 
    something that I missed or miscellaneous tips, just E-Mail me and I will 
    credit you.  Spelling and grammar corrections will also be appreciated.  I am 
    also poor (sometimes) in understanding the plot or story of a game so if I am 
    mistaken in writing about a certain story line, drop me a mail.
    
      If there are something you want to add such as the enemies stats, or game 
    secrets or anything, please give it to me.  I will credit anyone who 
    contributes to this thing.
    
      Hey, don't forget to tell me where you read this document if you are going 
    to e-mail me.
    
      You can also send me questions via E-Mail or ICQ me if I am available.

    ## ---Warning--- ##
    ###################
    
      This FAQ/Walkthrough CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS and I STRONGLY suggest that 
    YOU SHOULD NOT READ the walkthrough UNLESS you are STUCK or have FINISHED the
    game AT LEAST ONCE on BOTH CHARACTERS.
    
      But if you like to be spoiled, go ahead!

      Threads of Fate is an action-RPG which is developed and released by Square.  
    It is like Brave Fencer Musashi or Alundra 2 in terms of gameplay.
    
      Threads of Fate is 3D (just like Brave Fencer Musashi or Alundra 2) and has 
    two playable characters namely Rue and Mint.  Their story, just like that of 
    Star Ocean 2 are somewhat alike, they aim for the same things, they have the 
    same goal but different intentions.
    
      I considered Threads of Fate a fun game to play mainly because of Mint's 
    dialogues but also that the game is really enjoyable.

     + ---Starting a Game--- +
     +++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
      Just connect your Play Station on an electrical outlet, press the Eject 
    button, put the CD in (the Threads of Fate CD), press the power button.
    
      You will see the Sony logo, then the Play Station logo.  Then you will see 
    something like this 'Published by Square' or something, then you will see the 
    Squaresoft logo.  After that you will be at the 'Press Start Screen' where in 
    there is the Threads of Fate logo.
    
      At the press start screen, you can press L1 or R1 to see some kind of intro 
    of the two main characters of the game, other characters and enemies.  There 
    are no FMV sequences in this game.  [Why?  Why Square? ... Why? ...]
    
      If you press start, you will be asked whether to start a 'New Game' or 
    'Continue' your game [that you already saved (duh!)].  Press 'X' to confirm.
    
      If you chose 'New Game', you can choose between the two playable characters 
    in the game, either Rue [Tale of a Mysterious Boy] or Mint [Tale of a spunky 
    girl].  Press the 'X' or confirm button to begin any of the two tales.
    
     ++++++++++++++++++
     + ---Controls--- +
     ++++++++++++++++++
    
      You can change the controls in the game <Menu>.
    
       D-Pad - Character Movement.  Up, Down, Left and Right.
       L1/R1 - Rotate Camera - applicable in certain places only.
             - See also Camera Movement section
    
      The different control settings:
    
       -Control Setting A-
         Triangle - Attack 2 (Rue) / Magic (Mint)
         Square   - Transform (Rue) / Set Magic (Mint)
         X        - Attack / Confirm
         Circle   - Jump / Cancel
    
       -Control Setting B-
         Triangle - Transform (Rue) / Set Magic (Mint)
         Square   - Attack 2 (Rue) / Magic (Mint)
         X        - Attack / Confirm
         Circle   - Jump / Cancel
    
       -Control Setting C-
         Triangle - Transform (Rue) / Set Magic (Mint)

         Square   - Attack / Confirm
         X        - Transform (Rue) / Set Magic (Mint)
         Circle   - Jump / Cancel
    
     +++++++++++++++++++++++++
     + ---Camera Movement--- +
     +++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
      You can change the game's camera movement in the game options.  Access the 
    game options from the menu.  There are two types of camera movements, normal 
    and reverse.  The normal and reverse concept of this game is unlike other 
    games and I believe that Square was mistaken in this one.  Why?, because:
    
      The normal camera movement goes like this.  When you press L1, the camera 
    moves to the right and when you press R1, the camera moves to the left.  
    [Isn't this supposed to be the reverse camera movement]
    
      The reverse camera movement goes like this.  When you press L1, the camera 
    moves to the left and when you press R1, the camera moves to the right.  
    [This should have been the normal camera movement]
    
     +++++++++++++++++++
     + ---Attacking--- +
     +++++++++++++++++++
    
      Attacking in this game gives you a 3-Hit combo then there will be a brief 
    stop.  Attacking is also auto-aim, meaning that if you attack, even if the 
    enemy is behind your back, your character will automatically face the other 
    direction and whack the enemy.  Also, if you attack, every time you hit an 
    enemy your MP will restore depending on how powerful the enemy is (the 
    stronger the enemy is the higher the restore of MP).
    
      For Rue, he has the 3-Hit combo together with Attack 2.  Attack 2 in Rue's 
    normal form can be best utilized when the enemies are hard to attack using 
    Attack 1 like the Stingers.  Attack 2 does not use MP and just like Attack 1, 
    you can get MP if you hit an enemy with it.
    
      There is also the jump attack.  The jump attack has twice the damage of an 
    ordinary attack.  Rue's jump attack is a spin while damaging the enemy on 
    both directions.  Mint's jump attack is a jump kick and deals damage from 
    enemies that is below or in front of it.  In some battles, the jump attack 
    proves very useful.
    
      Eventually (at the Final Battle) Rue's Attack 2 will turn in to a defense 
    posture.  The damage you receive (I think) is minimized and you won't fall 
    down or lose your ground if you receive a strong blow.
    
     +++++++++++++++++++
     + ---Transform--- +
     +++++++++++++++++++
    
      Rue needs monster coins in order to transform.  Monster coins can be 
    acquired by killing monsters (just like money) but it does not subtract 
    anything from the monster coins that you can get for money and if you sell 
    your monster coins, even if you can read 0 monsters for all, you can still 
    transform into that monster as long as you have killed it.  But even if it is 
    like this, you can carry up to 4 monsters in your transformation inventory 
    (you can see that at Rue's Status) at a time.
    
      In transforming as I said earlier, require monster coins, and only 4 
    monsters in the inventory.  If you press the transform button, you can choose 
    to transform into the 4 monsters or become Rue.  Rue and the monsters have 
    different abilities for Attack 1 and Attack 2.  Sometimes attacks would use 
    up MP, but sometimes it does not.  Aside from difference of attacks, the way 
    they look like (pretty obvious) and the way they move is also different.  
    Sometimes the monster has the power to jump twice or float on terrain, others 
    can run faster and jump further.
    
      See the Transformation List for extra details.
    
     +++++++++++++++
     + ---Magic--- +
     +++++++++++++++
    
      Mint uses MP when using Magic.  Magic is divided into classes and type.  
    Different magic classes are (Blue, White, Red, Green, Yellow, Black and 
    Gold).  
    Also, magic, just like attacks, is auto-aim.  Mint automatically aims the 
    magic to the enemy.  Also magic attacks with different effects (like Wide, 
    Normal, Super, Power, Hyper, Circle and Cosmos).  You can gain classes or 
    colors from certain events and the effects can be acquired from chests 
    scattered in the game.
    
      If you press the 'Set Magic' button, you can change the color of the magic 
    to the one you want to use by pressing the 'Left' or 'Right' direction button 
    and by pressing the 'Up' or 'Down' button, you can change the effects of the 
    magic.
    
      In the 'Set Magic' screen, the one in the center is the icon of the magic 
    you want to use and the icon of the effect.  On the top, you can see the 
    magic's name, below it the MP and below of it, on the left is the effect of 
    the magic and at the right is the description of the magic (though it is a 
    very vague description for a magic attack but you can get ideas from it 
    though).
    
      Also check out the magic list section.
    
     +++++++++++++++++++
     + ---Game Over--- +
     +++++++++++++++++++
    
      If your HP reaches below 0, you will be in the 'Game Over' screen (except 
    for situations like fighting Rod or the fight together with the Trap Master).  
    In this screen you will be asked to choose from three things, first whether 
    to continue the game at that point, or to go back to town or to exit.
    
      If you chose the first 'Continue', you will be asked what is the coin you 
    want to use:  Bronze Coin   - Full HP & 1/4 MP
                  Silver Coin   - Full HP & 1/2 MP
                  Gold Coin     - Full HP & MP
                  Platinum Coin - Full HP & MP, +1 Base Strength & Defense
    
      If you chose to 'Go back to town', you will end up in town [where else?] 
    and your parameters (Maximum HP, Maximum MP, Strength & Defense) will remain 
    the same to the ones before you died, and NOT before your last save so it is 
    all right.  The monsters coins you have will also be the same at the time 
    before you died so do not worry.  The problem with this though is that the 
    items you picked up at that place will be gone and you have to go back 
    through that place again :(.
    
      If you chose exit, you will forfeit your chance of continuing, so if I was 
    you, if you are planning on choosing this, reconsider and choose the 'Go back 
    to town' option and 'Save' your game if you want to quit.
    
     +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
     + ---Increasing Parameters--- +
     +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
      In Threads of Fate, there are no 'Level Up' features, nor do you gain 
    experience from fighting enemies.  To increase your parameters, you need to 
    do the following.  Check out Hobbs' Shop and Item Shop in the The Town 
    section.

         |---------------------------------------------------------------|
    
       Also, there is a nice tip, courtesy of KTeoh!
    
    (1) When fighting Rod, if he hits you a lot (usually if he wins), you
        will usually gain 2 hp (when your hp is not very high, i think
        below 150 or so). And the cost? Only 100 G. If you add it up,buying
        the +10hp from Hobbs costs 5000G, 10hp divided by 2hp is 5 (so 5
        times). Battle Rod 5 times (and let him beat you up) - 500g only
        compared to 5000G (you shouln't buy that anyways). So its kinda
        good way especially when monsters don't quite help anymore.
    
    (2) The max hp/mp gain formula is simple.
    
        HP - As you lose HP, your max HP will increase. So its not a matter
             of how many times you get hit, its the amount of damage dealt.
             So a Pollywog may hit you 10 times and each hit gives you 1
             damage - total is 10 damage. But a behemoth can hit you once
             and give you 20+ damage. So to say, its better to fight 
             monsters that do more damage (being careful to get those blue
             potions to keep healthy). 
             *Fighting Rod is a good way...see (1)
    
        MP - MP gain is counted by the number of times you use magic
             against enemies (better) OR just stand there with nobody
             around and 'waste' MP (works in a way, but takes more times).
             Since the formula doesn't care about MP cost, use magic/attack
             that uses very little MP.
    
             For Mint = White-Vulcan
             For Rue  = Gargoyle's Sonic, Stinger's rolling spine*, etc...
    
             * I found this to be a good way early in the game. The king
               ant at the underground ruins is weak only to fire, so any
               other attack will deal only 1 damage. Since the stinger's
               rolling spine uses only 1 mp, and refilling MP is soo easy,
               just roll at the ant again and again, it won't die fast,
               but your max MP will go up

    ## ---Frequently Asked Questions--- ##
    ######################################
    
     Q. Where can I find the (something) and what does it do?
    
     A. Just try finding the item using the 'Search' or 'Find' feature in your 
    word processor, whatever word processor you are using.  Usually it is in the 
    something bar, look under 'Edit'.  Most of the time, you just have to press 
    Ctrl-F for the 'Find' or 'Search' window to open up.  Just type the item and 
    just read the text near it and maybe they will lead you to something.
    
    *****************************************************************************
     Q.  Darn it, I need money, where can I get some?
    
     A.  If you kill monsters, go to a shop and use the option 'Sell Monsters'.
         Note that if you sell, you will be selling all of them.  Also, you can
         get money by selling items like stones, coins, or the rare but sellable
         equipment like the Legendary stuff and the like.
    
    *****************************************************************************
     Q.  Those blinking things around towns, I found out that they were items and 
         you said that it appears at random, are you sure?
    
     A.  No, I am not.  Verify them if you like.  Thanks!
    
    *****************************************************************************
     Q.  Can I ask you about other games besides Threads of Fate?
    
     A.  Go ahead, I will entertain everything that is at my e-mail (well, 
         except advertisements though) and I think I would love to do that.
    
    *****************************************************************************
     Q.  Can I buy items that restore HP and MP in dungeons?
    
     A.  You can't.  There are no such things in Threads of Fate.  What you could
         do is to get the potions (blue to restore HP and red to restore MP),
         step on heal panels (to restore HP) or use Mint's blue magic (Blue - 
         Restore) to gain HP.
    
    *****************************************************************************
     Q.  Why are the story parts near the end full of this (...)?  (you can spoil
         the story for me)
    
     A.  But some people doesn't want to and I think that you guys should find it
         out for yourselves.
    
    *****************************************************************************
     Q.  Do you retain all the items you have in New Game +?
    
     A.  No, not all but you will retain all coins, all stones and other things 
         except from other rare things that I am not really sure.  For more info, 
         check out the So You've Finished the Game section.
    
    *****************************************************************************
     Q.  I have finished one character and I am asking if I can play that
         character again (before playing the other one)?
    
     A.  No, you can't but if you finished the other character, you will have the
         New Game + mode and you can play both characters alternatively and that
         would depend on you who to play at any given time.
    
    *****************************************************************************
     Q.  I am fighting Pollywogs at Carona Forest for a long time now but I still
         couldn't get a level up, what is wrong with this game?
    
     A.  Mainly, there are no 'Level ups' in Threads of Fate.  You can increase
         your maximum HP by taking damage, your MP by using MP consuming
         abilities, your Strength and Defense by buying upgrades from Hobbs, by
         buying items (bracers for strength and belts for defense) from Tonio.
         You can also increase your Maximum HP, MP, Strength and Defense by
         giving Jargen the 'Legendary Items' (Legendary Sword, Legendary Shield
         and the Legendary Helmet) and give him the necessary ingredients.  Also,
         for more info, check out the You Need to Know These Stuff section
         pertaining to the Increasing Parameters.

      First things first so what you should do, if you like is to save.  To save, 
    go to the 'Inn' see  #5 on Map.  Enter the 'Inn' go to the counter and press 
    confirm button at the log book (that is what it looks like for me), select 
    register.  (See Saving in 'You need to know these stuff' section.  You can 
    choose to go to the church.  Talk to Doyle (the person in there), say that 
    you like to pray, then he will ask you if you like to make a donation but 
    since you only have 100 G so don't bother.  There is nothing to do at the 
    Hotel.  Elena's House is locked.  The store doesn't sell anything yet but the 
    storekeeper will tell you about the antique shop.  He will say that the 
    antique shop is in another side of town and the shop's keeper Klaus is out 
    together with his wife Mira to research about the [Relic] in the forest.  He 
    also will say that the antique shop is being run by Klaus' daughter, Elena 
    [because Klaus is not there] but she isn't there because she has gone to the 
    forest to go looking for her parents.  You can talk to the people there and 
    they will say some interesting things so try talking to them (specially to 
    Marco).  After that, proceed to B (see Map).

      Here, first check the barrel, it contains a Silver Coin.  Go to the tavern 
    if you like and talk to Annette (the waitress) many times and she will treat 
    you to drink either 'Milk' or 'Root beer'.  Milk restores 10% of your MP and 
    the Root beer restores your MP 25% (so choose the 'Root beer').  There is 
    also a sign beside the Tavern's door (leads you to the outside of the 
    Tavern).  There will be a fight at Grass Fields, the fighting fee is 100 G 
    and the winners prize is 1000 G.  Leave the tavern.  Hobbs' Shop is locked so 
    leave the place and go next to C (see Map).

      Walk, then jump the three stumps, then your first battle.  You will be 
    fighting against the Pollywog, (see Fighting, and Increasing Parameters in 
    'You need to know these stuff' section) they are EASY, just whack them.  The 
    game will say that when you attack an enemy, your will gain MP.  Also the 
    enemies drop potions.  The Blue Potion restores some of your HP and the Red 
    Potion restores some of your MP.  The restoration of your HP when picking up 
    the blue potions or restoration of your MP by picking up red potions or 
    attacking enemies physically depends on how strong the enemy is [If the enemy 
    is pitiful, you will gain 1 or when it is strong, you will gain 2 or more].  
    The enemies keep coming back so after beating enough (two of them I think) 
    advance to the place where you need to use magic to defeat the enemies (see 
    Transform, 'You need to know these stuff' section).  Get the Pollywog monster 
    coin which has the power of float and use that so that you can easily cross 
    the water (shallow water), take the 3x Bronze Coins in the treasure box (or 
    whirling pink thingie) [would you mind if I call it box or chest or 
    something and not whirling pink thingie].  Onto the next section.

    the exit.  Nothing special here except two new enemies, the Saber Tiger and 
    the Mandola.  The Saber Tiger is fast and deals 3-8 damage to you.  You can 
    kill it in about 3 hits.  The Mandola attacks in long range, and can be 
    killed within 3 hits.  Before you leave the area, make your you have at least 
    a 30 HP, you'll need it, trust me.

      *Story*
       Here you will see the antique shop's daughter, Elena, together with Blood 
    and Smokey.  They are going to steal money from her.  Rue will be hiding at 
    the back of the rock and he decides to help her.  But he needs to tranform so 
    that he could go near and whack the bad guys.
      *Story*
    
      Transform yourself into a Pollywog.
    
      *Story*
       Rue, in a pollywog form, will approach the Blood and Smokey and attack 
    them.  Blood and Smokey will get mad and decided to kill the pollywog (which 
    is Rue).
      *Story*
      
      Here is your first *BOSS* battle against Blood and Smokey.  
    
       *Boss Battle- Smokey & Blood*
        Challenge:  Easy
    
        What you do here is run until only one is at your back [try to trap one 
    using obstacles].  When he is alone, just attack until he is defeated.
    
      *Story*
       Blood and Smokey will run away and Rue will turn back into his human form 
    and Elena will be surprised and will call Rue Polly from now on.  She will 
    think that maybe you are a monster but for her she will tell Rue that it does 
    not matter.  Elena will ask Polly [^_^] to help her find her parents who are 
    searching for the [Relic] and upon hearing this, Rue decides to help her.  
    After that, Rue will wonder about maybe that he is a monster.

      Here, you will talk to Elena's parents, Klaus and his wife, Mira.  You will 
    meet Rue here for the first time.
    
       *Story*
        Rue will ask Klaus, Elena's father if he can do something to find the 
    [Relic].  He will tell you about the [Relics].  Since he has spent his life 
    searching for ruins, he found out certain things.  Klaus says that 100 years 
    ago there was a magician that was also searching for the [Relics].   The 
    magician lived in an Atelier (a magician's workshop) which has a key to 
    somewhere that could probably lead to the [Relic] but the problem is that it 
    is below the steep cliff Klaus tried going down but they both broke their 
    ankles.  Rue decides to jump down the cliff.

       *Interesting stuff to check out*
        Try running around the perimeter of the place and looking at your shadow.  
    The shadow depends on the lighting of the place.  Pretty cool huh!
    
      What you do here is to run around and after that enter the Atelier but ...

    Thrust its sides (don't go head to head).

      Examine the Vault (V)
    
      *Story*
       Rue tries to open the vault by force but Klaus will examine it and he will 
    push a switch.  Then Elena will call Rue so Rue steps outside and Elena will 
    tell him that Rue's friend is outside, a pollywog.
      *Story*
    
      Go back inside the Atelier.
    
      *Story*
       Klaus will tell Rue that they found something pretty important but someone 
    will arrive and demand that you give it to her.  Rue will ask for her name 
    and she will say 'Princess' Mint.  Rue and Klaus doesn't want to give up what 
    they found so Mint will try to attack them so she jumps down but she will 
    drop flat on the ground.  She will leave and tell you that she will get it 
    later.  Klaus will ask Rue to carry what they have just recently found back 
    to Klaus' house.
      *Story*
    
      You will automatically end up in town.
    
     ********************
     * 'Town of Carona' *
     ********************
    
       *Story*
        Mira, Klaus wife is talking to Ms. Cartha, the innkeeper.  She asks Ms. 
    Cartha to let Rue stay at the inn for free so now you can recover HP at the 
    inn.  Mira tells Rue to proceed to their house (Klaus' house).
       *Story*
    
      I suggest that you go to the inn first to save.  Go inside the inn, talk to 
    Ms. Cartha and she will ask you to Recover / Recover & Register / Go to your 
    room.  Choose Recover & Register then save your game [sadly, the inn only 
    restores your HP].  After that, if you like, check out your room.  Nothing 
    really important, just talk to the bed and sleep [it doesn't replenish your 
    MP either :(].
    
      Leave the place and go check out Hobbs' place.  Even though you can't buy 
    anything here yet, just make a trip their to find out more stuff about the 
    game.  In Hobbs' place, you can choose to [upgrade] your base strength, base 
    defense, maximum HP and maximum MP.  Your base strength will increase by 1 
    and the same goes for the base defense.  Your maximum HP and maximum MP will 
    increase by 10.  It costs 30,000 G for each one (base strength or base 
    defense or maximum HP or maximum MP).  It is ultra-mega-hyper [ok, you 
    probably understand already] expensive but if you give the Rare Wine to him 
    later in the game, you can buy one for 5,000 G.
    
      Now you can go to the tavern and replenish your MP (but I suggest not to).  
    Talk to the bartender and he will offer you Milk for 50 G (restores 10% MP), 
    Rootbeer 120 G (restores 25% MP) and Tropical Delight 220 G (restores 50% 
    MP).  Leave the tavern.
    
      Now to got to the shop.  At the item shop, talk to the shopkeeper, his name 
    is Tonio.  First sell your coins (monster coins not the Bronze or Silver 
    Coins).  Check out what he is selling.  At this point, he is selling
    
       Item Shop
        Item              Description           Cost
        Bronze Bracer  -  Bonus Strength +4  -  1,000 G
        Silver Bracer  -  Bonus Strength +8  -  3,000 G
        Bronze Belt    -  Bonus Defense  +4  -  1,000 G
        Silver Belt    -  Bonus Defense  +8  -  3,000 G
    
      If you have 3,000 G, go buy the Silver Bracer.  After that leave the shop.
    
      Now if you have confidence in yourself, try going to the Grasslands.  Here 
    try fighting Rod.
    
       *Story*
        Here, Rod introduces himself and his dog Johnny Wolf.  He says that he is 
    a weapon blacksmith and a swordsman.  Rod will challenge Rue because he saw 
    the large weapon that Rue is carrying.  If you decide to fight, you have to 
    pay 100 G (you will win 1,000 G if you beat him).  Pay the 100 G and do 
    battle.
       *Story*
    
       *Boss Battle - Rod*
        Challenge:  Hard
    
        Approach him with caution.  Do not go near him when he is spiraling 
    either the ground or jumping one.  Try leading him to the obstacle (in the 
    middle).  He will stop spiraling so now run and attack him using a 3-hit 
    combo, then evade his attack by jumping back twice.  After that attack again 
    using a 3-hit then evade his attack by jumping back again twice.  Then run 
    around until he does again the spiraling move (either the jumping one or 
    ground one).  Repeat the above steps again till you win.
    
      If you win against him, you will get 1,000 G but if you lose then you 
    wasted your money.  So after that, go back to town and go to Klaus' House.  
    Go to the basement and talk to Klaus.
    
       *Story*
        He will tell you that according to the diary Rue found at the Atelier 
    below the cliff, an Aeon [Relic] is sealed by a high order of magic, which 
    even the magicians cannot break.  And according to the diary, the magician 
    will go to the Atelier of the Master Magician Elroy.  Now you are instructed 
    to go to Elroy's Atelier and get more info about the [Relic].

      After that, go talk to Marco, the kid outside town.  Talk to him twice 
    until he tells you about a something hidden in the stump in Carona Forest.  
    So now, head for the Hotel and ask for a room (it costs 500 G).

      First get the bed and examine the bed to sleep.  You will dream about some 
    monkey, jumping down the hollow stump.  [You might wonder that why did I let 
    you sleep in the hotel if you could have just slept at the inn.  1) is that 
    because you can get the Dream Stone here and 2) No you will not get the dream 
    if you slept at the inn.]  After that leave the Hotel and go talk to Graham 
    outside town for some tips in playing the game.  
    
      You need to buy the Silver Belt so if you don't have enough money, fight 
    enemies at Carona Forest and while you are there, why don't you go search for 
    the items that I listed that you should get later, get them now, the Silver 
    Coin and Bronze Coin (outside the Atelier).

      Here, get a Mandola coin and go to the place where you always fight Blood 
    and Smokey.  At that room, transform into a Mandola and use Bloom.  If it is 
    near you and jumping at you, attack it using Seed.  Get its coin and 
    transform into Ootang and climb the tree at the northeast.  You will be in a 
    new area.

       At the entrance, Mint will call Rue and ask him her name.  After that, she 
    will ask Rue to work together because the Underground Ruins is full of 
    monsters and she will say that Rue will probably last a minute in there.

       Mint will say to Rue that there is something blocking their way.  But 
    after that conversation, the boulder begins to move and will most likely 
    flatten anything on its way.
      *Story*
    
      RUN!, NOW!, don't mind Mint getting flattened.  I think the debris that are 
    dropping down the ceiling drops at random (I did it 6 times and I got 2 
    patterns.)  There is a time that both ceilings will fall, jump to avoid it.  
    Head for the place you started add and let the boulder crash and destroy the

       Mint will arrive without Rue noticing and she attempts to betray rue by 
    kicking him and let him fall into the water.  Rue will notice that his shoes 
    are untied and he ducks while Mints performs the jump kick.  Ironically, Mint 
    will fall down and Rue will thought of something about hearing someone like 
    Mint.

    jump to avoid it to another place.  After that, he / it (whatever) will be 
    tired and he / it will be blinking and go pound him / it silly.  Sometimes it 
    would be jumping, just do not go to that place and you won't take any damage.

      *Story*
       Belle and Duke will demand from Rue to hand over the items he got from the 
    Atelier, but Rue doesn't want to.  Because of that, Duke will want to fight 
    you using his new act that he learned from a book called "Shadow Night" which 
    is about the ninjas.
      *Story*
      
      *Boss Battle - Duke*
       Challenge:  Medium
    
       You can avoid his attacks by jumping aside.  Just use attack 1 to dispose 
    of him.
    
      *Story*
       Belle will say "Good work" to Duke and she will steal the Tiara from Rue.  
    After that they are going to leave and Rue will go after them.
      *Story*
    
      Back to the past room, it would seem like another boss battle with Skull 
    Beast but now, it is invincible and it is stronger.  Try whacking it once and 
    get the hell out.  Go to the left and step on the platform with the star 
    icon.
    
      Now, run like hell to the top by taking the inner belt (the one closer to 
    the center) and try avoiding the spiked iron balls by passing when you can 
    get a good clearing (it is quite alright to take a hit or two).  Pollywog 
    works great here so make sure you have one and you can jump over the iron 
    balls too!
    
      *Story*
      It is a dead end, and the Skull Beast is close, Rue will take a side step 
    so the Skull Beast will fall below.
      *Story*
    
      You will automatically end up in town.

      Go to Klaus' House.
    
      *Story*
       In the basement, he will tell Rue that he now knows where the relic was 
    and it is inside the Lake Ruins.  Also he will tell Rue that the Cube is 
    somewhat like a key needed to enter the ruins in the lake.  Rue will say 
    sorry because he lost the Tiara.  Klaus will say that it is ok because they 
    do not know what the cube is for anyway.  He will then tell Rue that he knows 
    someone that may know how to use the Cube so maybe you should ask Mel a 
    magician and is living at her Atelier, but he doesn't want to go there so it 
    is up to you to go there because of some reason.

      Now you can access Mel's Atelier and the Lakeside.
    
      Go first to Hobb's Shop. Here, you can give Hobbs the Rare Wine.  If you 
    give it to him, he will give you a discount from 30,000 G to 5,000 G for each 
    base status increase [YEAH! ^_^].

      In this place is Mel's Atelier (duh!).  Go walk and in the near half you 
    will be in a ULTRA-WEIRD place [what an UGLY place].  Go step on (s) the 
    Star.

        |=|
    
      Go knock at the door (where else are you supposed to knock, the roof? 
    HELLOOOOOO!) of Mel's Atelier.
    
      *Story*
       Rue will notice that the place was very unusual.  Rue also now knew why 
    Klaus did not want to go to this place.  Rue knocks at the door and she 
    notices a strange sound after that, a dwarf-like creature appears and tells 
    him that Mel is not home and he should play the games while waiting.
      *Story*
    
      [Ok, I don't want to play, can I just stand outside and wait for an hour or 
    something. [No you can't, you have to play the DAMN game] ;_;].
    
      Go save first because you *may* reset and bash your CD because of this 
    ultra-annoying mini-games [especially the Big Swings and Giant Balls].
    
      Go play the easiest first, Blow Trumpet.  Talk to the Poppul Purrels 
    outside until you find the one that asks you to play Blow Trumpet.
    
      [Sorry no maps for the mini-games.  I was so annoyed that I can't do it.]
    
      The games here are timed, and if you hurry, you can get more time at the 
    bonus game.  In the bonus game, if you reached or gone above the high score 
    which is 500 points, you can get a Silver Coin, but if not, you can get a 
    Bronze Coin.
      
      Here, wait for the waves or hurry up to avoid it.  The enemy here called 
    the cockadoo is annoying.  Go blast it with anything you have, just kill the 
    damn thing.  On the seesaw, it may seem like impossible to reach, but it is 
    possible.  Another seesaw is like something I do not know what to call it 
    [anybody knows?], first jump at the left side of it, then at the right side, 
    then again at the left side, and again at the right side and do the following 
    until you are confident enough to jump to the other side.  A little walk 
    after that and you will be at the bonus game.  In the bonus game, you have to 
    step on the trumpets to keep the cockadoo away.  If you blast many cockadoos 
    at a time, you can get more points.  If the cockadoo lands on your head you 
    lose.
    
      After this, go save and go to the Big Swings.
    
      Here, be careful in jumping because the enemies here, called the Imp has an 
    attack that throws stars at you, try to be patient enough so that you don't 
    get hit by it.  Also, careful in the swings too.  It is very easy to slip by 
    a few centimeters and you will fall.  At the bonus game, you have to get the 
    balls to earn points.  Do not get the black balls.  If you get balls of the 
    same color in consecutive order, you can get bonus points.
    
      After that, save and now is the time that you go to the hardest one (for 
    me), the Giant Balls.
    
      Careful in jumping again because of the Imps.  In jumping from a Giant 
    Ball, make sure you don't jump late because you will fall off.  There are 
    also cubes near the end where you can step on.  It will fall so jump to the 
    next place as soon as possible.  The bonus game here requires you to beat up 
    the fungies.  Strategy, avoid fungi build up, go all out, whack 'em all.
    
      After this, the cockadoo save point will be gone.  If you try to knock 
    again at the door.
    
      *Story*
       Mel will arrive and Rue will be staring at her so she will ask and Rue 
    will say that he was just looking at the fancy stuff all around her.  Rue 
    will ask her for help.  Inside, she will discourage you to go get Valen's 
    [Relic] (Rue wonders why the name Valen sounds familiar) because it has the 
    ability to destroy the world.  Rue will say that he doesn't care because he 
    has spent the 3 years searching for it.  After that, she will agree to help 
    you but you should help her by finding the Poppul Purrel that she asked to go 
    to town the other day.  Rue will agree to the deal and he will leave.  Mel 
    will talk to herself about Rue, being a poor guy because he still doesn't 
    have a clue.
      *Story*
    
      Now go back to town [what a relief!].

    challenge his father for the title but he did not have the chance to do so

    and in there
    
      *Story*
       Mel and the Poppul Purrel that Rue helped will thank him and Rue will 
    inquire about the cube.  Mel said that all you need to know is in the report 
    so she hands Rue Mel's Report and the Cube.
    
       After that, Mel will ask Rue the question that she was supposed to tell 
    Rue.  She will ask Rue that is Rue human.  Rue will ask Mel why does she ask 
    something like that to him and Mel will say that there is something odd about 
    Rue's spirit, she can see Rue's spirit together with a shadowy one.  After 
    that, she will say something that she is sorry if she has offended Rue, but 
    Rue will say that it is all right and he will tell a story.
    
       Rue will say that five years ago, he woke up in some ruins and he can't 
    remember anything.  He tries to remember what to do, who he is and where to 
    go.  But suddenly, he fell down and Claire found him.  Even though he is a 
    complete stranger, Claire welcomed him.  When she found out that Rue had 
    nowhere to go and stay, she let Rue stay at her house.  He will say that he 
    wandered so long and at that time he found a home and Claire that is like his 
    sister.  But one night 'he' came and killed Claire, he looked like Rue, and 
    he has a gem on his forehead.  Rue will say that he wanted to kill the guy 
    and so he emitted light and the guy was gone and he came to Claire and asked 
    her to open her eyes but she was dead.  Light emits on Claire's body and 
    something came out and entered Rue's forehead, it was her spirit.
    
       Now, Mel has understood why Rue is so determined to get the [Relic] but 
    still she asks Rue to think it over.  After that somebody will knock at the 
    door and Rue will leave.
    
       Outside Rue will see Mint together with Elena.  Mint wanted to ask Rue 
    what Mel told her but Rue doesn't want to tell so Mint is going to ask Mel.  
    Elena will accompany Rue back to town.
    
       Rue will then explain to Elena that he is not a Pollywog but he can 
    transform into one and Elena understood and apologized to Rue.  But suddenly, 
    Elena will see a star moving and it is duke.  He demands to get Mel's report 
    and the Cube from Rue but Rue does not want to give it.

    Master Magician Elroy created the doll and the doll's name is Prima Doll and 
    it is the one that can break the seal to Valen's Relic.  But since Prima Doll 
    is still incomplete, Mint can't break the seal now.  Rue needs to get the

    will see a suspicious looking chandelier in which he is thinking that it 
    might fall if he steps on the floor below it.  Knowing this, Rue will 
    cautiously move along the corners of the room but an enemy with the red

    when it is standing still (it will stand still in a few seconds after 
    charging you).

       After the defeat of the Chimera, Rue will pick up the Left Solleret.

        In this second battle, it will lose the ability to charge you fast and 
    attack you with its sickle.  It has a new attack in place of that, it can 
    cause bolts to fall from the sky [uhhh... roof actually].  You can avoid that 
    attack by running around the place or running far from its starting point.  
    Attack it when it is not moving or after he throws down his bolts.
    
      After the battle, it will drop the Right Solleret, grab it and proceed to 
    the next room using (U).

       Challenge:  Medium - Hard
    
       Now it has the combined attacks of the last two and new attacks.  Again to 
    avoid the fast moving charge, just jump back and aside.  Also to avoid the 
    bolts, just run far from the bolts starting point or run around the place.  
    Fire Wall attack is one of its new attack.  Just stay away from it (it would 
    encircle him and he won't move).  It can also throw fire now so just jump 
    aside to avoid it.  You can attack and run back and just attack and run back 
    again and again.

    suggest you use the one that costs more MP to cast].  Leave the room using 
    (Y).
    
      You will appear at (Z), remember it is the room where you previously saw

      *Story*
       Rue will prepare to attack the one that is hiding and the one hiding will 
    come out and Rue will see Elena.  Elena will say that she just came to look 
    for Rue because she thought that Rue needs a guide at the place even though 
    she hasn't been there yet.  Elena will ask Rue to explore together but Rue 
    wants Elena to go back to town and he will accompany her because the place is 
    dangerous.  Elena will get convinced and as you go back to where you entered, 
    the door will close and Elena and Rue cannot go back.  Rue decided to take 
    her but asks her not to move unless he say so.  Elena agrees and both of them 
    will go together.  Rue will says to Elena that he will transform more often 
    and asks her if she would be all right.  She will say that she will be ok but 
    asks Rue to transform into cute forms.

    |the time to add them to the Copyrights and Legal Stuff section anymore [but 
    |if you like a clue, it is an Action game with a little bit of Role-Playing 
    |and the words virus and zombies are involved]) wherein someone will follow 
    |you and if you are pretty far from that person, you can't proceed to the 
    |next room.  But the good thing is that Elena doesn't trip over or something.
    |
    |  Elena can get stuck at corners so just go near her and guide her.  Also, 
    |you can't leave the room if she is far from you (Rue actually '_').

    will do that.  Rue jumps toward the place with the monsters.

      *Story*
       When Rue enters the room where Elena is supposed to be, he will see that 
    Elena is being grabbed by Puppets and they will teleport.
      *Story*
    
      Follow them by teleporting using (p) and you will appear at (s).  There 
    teleport using (t) at the room to the right of where you appeared.  You will 
    appear at (u) and there, go back to the rooms before that using door (m) and 
    you will be at the room with a lever and a small hole you passed from (l) the 
    door above, go out using (k) the door below.  You will be at the place where 
    monsters are banging the door, enter the right door, which is (e).  
    
      Inside that room, kill the enemies (3 Puppets) and inspect the weak wall 
    again.  The wall will crumble and you will see Elena inside together with 3 
    Skeletons.  [Go forth , doth haveth the powereth, killeth 'em all] (well 
    except for Elena ^_^).
    
      *Story*
       Elena will apologize to Rue for being a bother because of thinking that 
    she would be a help to him.  Rue will say that it is ok as long as she is 
    safe.  Elena will be all right now so they decided to go on.
      *Story*
    
      Go back to the room where there are floating steps (3) and the door (v).  
    You will notice that the (3)s are spinning and moving around.  Just jump 
    across them using Rue and after that, Elena has to cross.  Just press the 
    Triangle button to make Elena jump.  You can also notice that one of them is 
    also spinning slower than the other so it might be better if you let Elena 
    step on that.  After doing that, enter door (v).

      In the next room
    
      *Story*
       Rue and Elena will see Duke battling with a Chimera.  Duke will 
    confidently destroy the Chimera, grab the Right Gauntlet and talk to Rue.  He 
    will say that he is going to get the other stuff from Rue and after that, he 
    will also beat Rue up.  He will say that he has a new act from the book "Fist 
    of Fire" and the new move is the 'Sunrise Uppercut'.  He will say that he is 
    a little sleepy but his fist is powerful.  He will also ask Elena to stay 
    back before the battle.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Duke*
       Challenge:  Medium - Hard
    
       Avoid his fists and uppercut by jumping back.  Also when he lights up, he 
    will punch the ground and will either do a circular attack or a straight one 
    directional attack.  You can attack him when he finishes doing an uppercut 
    and you can do that only twice because he has another uppercut which will 
    follow.  Do not attack the obstacles because they will deal you damage.  You 
    can also try to let him destroy the obstacles so that he will be the one to 
    take up damage.
    
      *Story*
       After the battle, Duke cannot but desperately tries to get up.  Rue will 
    say to him that the battle is over but Duke is still determined to get the 
    stuff from you.  Elena will try to help Duke but Duke will refuse her offer 
    because he does not need Elena's pity.  But Elena will say that she wants to 
    help Duke so Duke will get up and say thanks.  After that, the Wall will move 
    and there seems to be a trap mechanism and it would crush all of them.  Rue 
    will try to open the previous door but it is locked.  Duke tries to stop the 
    wall by pushing it and asks Rue to open the other door.  Rue will try to open 
    the door but it is also locked and Duke will tell him to bash it, destroy it 
    or something because he cannot push any longer.
      *Story*
    
      Just continually use Attack 1 and it will eventually open.  Or according to 
    KTeoh:
    
        At the final section, where Duke holds the moving wall as hard as
        he can, he will tell you to whack the door, right? Well, you can
        press Attack and waste your finger's energy, OR you can...
    
        ...just stand there and hear Duke's agony... (heh heh)
    
        Just when you think you're gonna die, Elena will say that the door
        is actually a SLIDING door, the door opens and everybody gets out.
        (I think thats one of those little times that Elena proves very
         useful ^_^)
    
      *Story*
       Elena will go out and say something about how good the sunlight feels and 
    stuff.  She will also ask you to go back to town.  She will thank Duke but 
    Duke will say that he just wanted to save himself.  Elena will tell Duke to 
    stop pretending because she knows that Duke is a good guy.  Elena will tell 
    Duke to take care of his injuries and then she will be going back to town 
    with Rue.  Duke will stop you and give the Right Gauntlet, Rue will thank him 
    but Duke will say that it is not for Rue but for Elena for worrying about 
    him.
    
       *Cut Scene*
        At the hotel, Belle is mad at Duke for giving Rue the Gauntlet and she 
    will beat Duke up.  She will ask Duke to explain why he gave it after he 
    worked so hard just to get it.  Duke couldn't explain because he will say 
    that he was just help by Rue and Elena and when they were outside, he just 
    got a strange feeling and gave it.  He will say that he is stupid and 
    promises to beat Rue up next time and get the stuff back.  He will say that 
    he can do that because he is psyched just like in the book.
    
        Belle will ask what book
    
        "'Fist of Fire', baby!!! Rue, I'm gonna like 'Fist of Fire' with you." - 
    Duke
        "YOU MORON, (what was that all about?  Maybe he really is a nut case." - 
    Belle
    
        Solin will arrive and asks them to pay up 2,500 G for their stay.  Belle 
    will tell him that she is going to pay for it sometime tomorrow.  Now, Belle 
    asks Duke to fix up Hexagon, their secret weapon and get money FAST!.

      Rue will be back at town and he will see Claire going into the alley that

      *Story*
       Rue will ask Marco if there was a girl in a purple robe and that is about 
    his height.  Marco will say that he did not see anybody so Rue will wonder 
    what he saw.

      If you check Rod out, he has a new weapon which is called the 'Golden

       Mint will be there and tells Rue that Belle put her up to a tough fight at 
    the forest.  After that, they will put the Pair of Gauntlets, Pair of 
    Sollerets and the Earrings to Prima Doll.  Klaus will then ask the both of 
    you to get the Phantomite at the Raging Mountains and somebody there named 
    Wylaf is there and a collector of rare gems and minerals and he might have 
    some.  Mint decides to go but Klaus will tell her that Wylaf is a powerful 
    dragon so she will back down and pass the work to Rue.  Mint will also tell 
    Rue that she will be the one that is going to confront Belle and Duke to get 
    the Tiara which 'Rue lost'.

      *Interesting Stuff to Check Out*
       Notice that the camera view is different now and you will be facing Rue's 
    front side instead of his back.  This is very confusing but it is quite fun 
    after a while because you don't see the things that are in front of Rue.
    
      Just go back to the main entrance and you can leave through there but MAKE 
    SURE YOU GET A SPECTER COIN if you do not have one.

      There are two kinds of enemies here, the Stinger and the Mandola.  The 
    Stinger is hard to hit so just measure the time when they are near your 
    attacking range, hit them.  When you reach the whithered plant, blast it with 
    your Specter - Water.  It will take a few hits and the plant will grow.  Now, 
    step on the plant (just jump to get to it) then get on the higher elevation 
    part (L) and take the (&) The Last Hero.  After that leave the area.  You can 
    leave the area by going right until you reach the wall and jump towards the 
    right.
    
      You will end up at the other open stump of the Carona Forest.  Just proceed
    until you get to the area outside the Atelier, talk to the Go home plant

    (you may like to step on (f) but you better hurry or you will fall with it).  
    At the next place, you will see it is blocked by a boulder (b) that you can't 
    destroy so just jump down and fight the Bubba there, kill it and get its 
    coin.  Use Bubba - Hammer or Bubba - Final Strike to destroy the boulder at 
    your right.  Now go back again to the top and hop the pits (p) and go destroy 
    the boulder (b) near the exit.  Go to the exit (duh!).

      Here just go up first and destroy the boulder (Bubba - Hammer or Bubba - 
    Final Stirke) and get 3 Silver Coins (1) and then go back, now down and again 
    destroy the boulder and in the (F area) just avoid the steam coming out of

      In this area, the winds sometimes blow, so avoid jumping too much.  You can 
    use the obstacles (o) as cover when the wind blows so you can attack the 
    enemies that are blocking your way and prevent you from blowing away.  Jump 
    the pits only when the wind is not blowing or else you will fall or fall back  
    (the Bubba is a major blockage on the way so take it out, even if you fall, 
    it does not matter).  Just head for the exit.

      *Story*
       Belle will tell Rue that he knows what she wants so just hand them over 
    but Rue will say that he needs it no matter what.  After saying that, Belle 
    will call Hexagon and tells Rue that she found it at the Sea Coral Ruins and 
    that it is their ultimate weapon.

      *Boss Battle - Belle with Hexagon and Duke*
       Challenge:  Medium
    
       Duke will do uppercuts but now they are not much of a problem but he is 
    still annoying so go all out against him first.  Just beat up Duke using 
    Attack 1.  After he is over, use your jump attacks at Belle with Hexagon.  Do 
    not do that when you face to face with Hexagon and that you should only try 
    using jump attack after it grabs air (since you are not there) or when you 
    are at its back.  If you drained the life bar of Belle with Hexagon, Belle 
    will jump down and fight you.  Just avoid her fire attacks and don't go near 
    her when there are white spinning things around her and just keep watch 
    because she will throw them at you.  Just attack her.
    
      They will leave after the battle and you will automatically go to the next 
    area.

      *Story*
       Rue will call Wylaf and Wylaf will arrive and say something about how dare 
    humans disturb him but he will say that Rue is not human.  Rue will apologize 
    for the disturbance but he wants Wylaf's help.  Wylaf will read Rue's mind 
    and say that he has a lot of Phantomite but he would not give it to Rue.  It 
    is because that he can destroy the world in attempting to do, the reason why 
    he wants to get the [Relic].  Wylaf will say that Rue is a selfish runt but 
    Rue will say that you just want to save Claire and that he doesn't intend on 
    destroying the world.  Wylaf will tell Rue that his words are meaningless and 
    that it can only be proven with a weapon.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Wylaf*
       Challenge:  Medium
    
       You can avoid getting damage and deal damage to Wylaf when WHILE he is 
    swooping down at you, you use Attack 1 and slash the air until he gets near 
    you and you will eventually slash him and he will go back into the air.  
    Also, when he breathes a fireball, avoid the place where it will fall and 
    avoid the (+) effect that it has (there would be a cross (+) in which the 
    fireball is the intersection).  Avoid also the vortex when he casts one 
    because it will throw you into the air.  When his life is below 1/2, the 
    battle will be over.
    
       NOTE THAT YOU SHOULD NOT ATTACK ONCE HE SAYS THE FIGHT IS OVER OR ELSE 
    PREPARE TO GET ROASTED, errr ... I mean meet the Game Over Screen.  Thanks to 
    KTeoh for giving this to me, check the Cool Stuff section to see more about 
    this.
    
      *Story*
       Wylaf will say that your heart is true and splendid and he will give you 
    the Phantomite.  Rue will thank Wylaf but Wylaf will say that there is no 
    need because Rue deserves it.  Wylaf will say that Rue's heart is true 
    (again!) and that he knows that Rue will not misuse the power of the relic 
    and that a 1,000 year old knowledge guarantees it.  Wylaf will leave, (and 
    maybe so for Rue too).
    
       *Cut Scene*
        You will see Belle and Duke at the tavern and blame each other because 
    they failed.  Belle will say that they do not have enough money to buy food, 
    they have not yet paid the hotel and that they have to repair Hexagon.  Duke 
    will say that if they did not stay at the nice hotel, they could have had 
    enough money.  Belle will punch him and say that unlike Duke, she came from a 
    good family and she does not want to stay at a cheapo inn.  After that, 
    Annette will ask them to leave because they are disturbing the other 
    customers or they should just have to quiet down.  Mint will arrive and they

      At the town, the hoodlums will arrive and give Rue a letter of challenge.  
    Rue is challenged to fight Blood and Smokey at the usual place at Carona

    will come.

       Rue will give him the Phantomite and Klaus will be amazed that Rue got it.  
    He will take it and will say that he will make the Amulet for Prima right 
    away.  Rue will then tell Klaus that only the Tiara is left and you are going 
    to get it from Belle and Duke but Mint will arrive telling Rue and Klaus that 
    there is no need for that because she already got it from Belle and Duke.  
    Rue will ask Mint how she got it but Mint would not say it.
    
       They will then put the Tiara on Prima Doll but ask what the Tiara is for.  
    Prima will say that the Tiara is used for decision making and certain 
    abilities, both mental and physical are on the Tiara which exceeds the 
    current intelligence which is only a mere backup.  After a couple of small 
    talk, Mint will get mad at Prima Doll and shows him the finger.  Also, after 
    that, Prima Doll will bug Klaus to finish the amulet as soon as possible but 
    he will suddenly stop.  All of them will wonder what happened so they have to 
    talk to Mel to find out.

      *Story*
       Rue will say that there is something wrong with Prima Doll.  Mel will say 
    to her that it must be because of Prima Doll's energy being radiated after 
    its long rest in the cube.  She will tell Rue that there might be a way to 
    restore Prima Doll's energy and that you need Gorotan's power, some guy that 
    can control the power of lightning.  She also will say that she is not sure 
    whether it will work but it is worth the try and tells Rue to be careful 
    because Gorotan does not like visitors.  Mel asks Rue to just find out where 
    Gorotan leaves from one of her assistants.

    "When going to Mel's Atelier as Rue when Prima is out of energy I found a gold 
    coin on the pink petalled plant with blue leaves and the purple 'crown'."
    
      Go outside the Atelier and talk to the Poppul Purrel that you helped 
    earlier.  I think it is the one near the back.
    
      *Story*
       He will say to Rue that he knows where Gorotan is and asks Rue if he wants 
    to play with Gorotan now, say Yes and Rue will be in a room with a flying guy 
    thing.

      Go to Klaus' house.
    
      *Story*
       Rue, in a Gorotan form, will be blasting bolts to Prima Doll and Prima 
    Doll will be charged up.  He should be ok now and he only needs to get the 
    Amulet in order to break the seal.
      *Story*
    
      I am not sure but iamnothing went to the tavern after this so head for the 
    tavern and maybe something will happen.
    
      After going there, go leave the town and head for the Lakeside.
    
     **************
     * 'Lakeside' *
     **************
    
      In the lakeside, you will see Mint together with Elena.  Go near them.
    
      *Story*
       Elena will tell Rue and Mint how she will feel after they get the [Relic].  
    She will say that she will be lonely because they will leave Carona.  Mint 
    will say to her that it doesn't matter because she will conquer the world and 
    create a castle.  Mint will also ask the two whether they want to become 
    ministers at her kingdom.  Elena will answer first and tell Mint that she 
    wants to become the minister of house keeping.  Mint will ignore Elena and 
    then ask Rue whether he wants to become a minister after getting the [Relic].  
    
      If you chose the option about Rue saying something like being a minister 
    would be a great idea, Mint will tell Rue that she wants Rue to become the 
    dog walking minister,  Upon hearing this Rue will say that he will change his 
    mind and say that he just wants to stay home.
    
      But if you chose the other option which is about Rue saying something about 
    turning down the offer, Rue will say that he will just have to stay home 
    after getting the [Relic] and whisper to himself "... stay home (with 
    Claire)."
    
      Anyway, after that, Mint will ask about how the amulet is doing to Elena 
    and Elena will say that it would probably be finished after some time.  Mint 
    will say that she can't keep THEM waiting.  Rue will inquire what Mint meant 
    about THEM but Mint will say that she remembered something.  It was obvious 
    that Mint is trying to hide something so Rue will wonder just what it was 
    about.
      *Story*
    
      Now that you are alone, go head back to town too.

       Klaus will tell Rue that the Amulet is near completion and he will ask Rue 
    to take Prima Doll to the Lakeside. 
      *Story*
    
      Go leave the house and talk to Marcum, the fat guy that buys stuff from you 
    and he will give you 50 G.  After that, I think there is a Bronze Coin 
    somewhere (but since item appearance, I think is at random so maybe it is not 
    there).
    
      Interesting Stuff to Check Out (thanks to PyRo MaNiA for this one)
    
       Prima Doll is following you right, why don't you go to the Grasslands and 
    talk to Johnny Wolf and he will follow Prima Doll, then talk to Rod, he will 
    join the 'train' party.  Now, Rue will be followed by Prima Doll, which is 
    followed by Johnny Wolf, and Rod will be behind Johnny Wolf.  You gotta see 
    this, it looks silly. 
    
      Go talk to the gate and head for the Lakeside (again!).
    
     **************
     * 'Lakeside' *
     **************
    
      *Story*
       At the Lakeside, Prima Doll will be amazed at how good it feels to be out 
    there.  He will tell that staying at the Cube did not gave him that kind of 
    feeling.  Also, Prima Doll will challenge Rue for a race towards the Lake.
      *Story*
      
      A good way to win the race is to block his way and run while he is at your 
    back.  You can also lose the race.
    
      *Story*
       Doesn't matter if you win or lose, it would be just small talk.  After 
    that, Prima Doll will say something about him, that he is just a tool that 
    would be used to unseal the [Relic].  Rue will comfort him by saying that 
    Prima Doll is not a tool because Prima Doll is alive.  
    
       "As ling as you're alive, there's always a chance ... there's always 
    hope."  - Rue
    
       Prima Doll will realize this and will thank Rue for the words.  After 
    that, he will say that he wants to go back to town.

       Here, Klaus will say that he has finished doing the Amulet.  Prima Doll 
    will try it on and he will feel great wearing it.  Now they are ready to 
    break the seal so Klaus gets up and tries to walk but his ankle still hurts.  
    Elena will say that her father still needs to rest but Klaus will say that he 
    can't stop now because his dream is only a few steps away.  Rue will ask 
    Klaus to rest and that he (Rue) and Prima Doll will take a boat ride to the 
    ruins.

       Rue will ask Rod about his machine that can travel fast on water.  Rod 
    will say that he has one and its name is Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega.  He 
    will tell Rue that it is powered by five Sorcerous Drivers that can make 
    Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega move and travel fast on water.  Rod will tell 
    Rue that he needs to get Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega ready and asks Rue to 
    call the people who are coming with him.

      Go leave the grasslands and go back to Klaus' house.  Go talk to Klaus at 
    the basement and say to him that you will depart for the ruins.
    
      *Story*
       Rue and Prima Doll together with Rod will be going to the Ruins together. 
    Prima Doll asks you if you were going to ride that cool looking boat and Rod 
    will say to him that it is not a boat but Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega.  
    Prima Doll ignores it and still calls it a boat.  There, you will then ride 
    the boat to the Lake Ruins.  After you see Rue, Rod and Prima Doll leave, 
    Mint will arrive and say something that Rue thought that they can leave them, 
    Mint together with Belle and Duke.

      *Story*
       At the Lake Ruins, Prima Doll tells Rue that he is ready to open the seal.  
    While Prima Doll is reciting the words that are to be used to break the seal, 
    Rue then speaks the latter part of the spell and he will then say that it 
    came out naturally from him.  Well anyway, Prima Doll begins to recite the 
    spell but Princess Maya will arrive, accompanied by Doll Master and Psycho 
    Master.  Princess Maya will say that it is the East Heaven Kingdom's duty to 
    protect the [Relic] from being unsealed for the past many years and she will 
    say that Rue cannot be allowed to break it.  Rue will say that he has a good 
    reason for breaking it so he doesn't want to stop the spell but Princess Maya 
    will cast a spell to Rue using the Book of Cosmos.  Rue, for some reason, 
    although he was a brought down by the spell, was latter able to conquer and 
    resist the power of the Book of Cosmos, East Heaven's greatest [Relic].  
    After that, Doll Master will cast a spell that would seal Rue's powers, so 
    Rue got sealed.  Doll Master will then ask Prima Doll to open the seal but 
    Prima Doll will petrify himself.  Mint will arrive, together with Belle and 
    Duke.  Duke will use his "Fist of Fire" on Doll Master but gets psyched out 
    by Psycho Master.  Belle will help Rue with the help of Hexagon.  After that, 
    all of them (Belle, Duke, Mint and Rue) will get out of the place and Rue 
    will promise to Prima Doll that he will save him.  Princess Maya will use the 
    Book of Cosmos to create a tower so that they can fortify the Lake Ruins.

    her.  Mint will say to Rue that Belle and Duke is waiting for her at the bar 
    and why don't Rue join them to talk about the stuff.
      *Story*
     
      Before you go to the bar, why don't you go talk to Rod first at the 
    grasslands.
    
      *Story*
       Rod will encourage Rue to keep going because it is just his trial phase.  
    He has survived his trial phase already and that was when he wasn't able to 
    create good weapons.  He will say that 'his woman' kept him going.  She was 
    the one that encourages him when he is down and tells him to stop moping and 
    create a new weapon.  He will say that Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega was her 
    only keepsake to him.  Rod will clarify that she, her name is Lucine and she 
    is not dead but he can't go see her until he marked a name in history.  He 
    will tell then to Rue that she just have to keep on going no matter what and 
    do not give up because someone will be watching over Rue.  Rue will ask 
    himself if Claire is watching him ...

      After that, go to the Tavern.

       Belle, Duke and Mint, will invite Rue in their table and they are going to 
    talk about something.  Belle will ask Rue why he is fighting so hard and Rue 
    will answer her that he is fighting because of Claire.  He will tell the 
    story but [you] won't hear about it.  After that, Belle and Duke will say 
    that now they understood what Rue has been going through and tell you taht 
    Mint always tried to double-cross him.  Belle will say that once Rue got the 
    [Relic], they are going to steal them from him.  Mint will defend herself and 
    say that if it was not for her, Rue may have been dead by that time.  They 
    will say that Maya is guarding the ruins and that they have to figure out a 
    way to get the [Relic].

      I found a Bronze Coin somewhere above the town's spring.  [But since, I

    should get the [Relic] so that they can keep it and that it would not fall 
    into the wrong hands.  Princess Maya will say that excessive power leads to 
    destruction and that it is their duty to prevent the seal from being broken 
    and they should never get into contact with the [Relic].  Princess Maya will 
    leave and Doll Master will talk to Psycho Master that if Maya cannot be used

      It would be night again.  As usual, at night, go to the Grasslands and talk 
    to Rod.
    
      *Story*
       Together with Rod, Duke is there and they will say that they fought a 
    while ago and Rod won.  Rod will tell both Rue and Duke that he had a hard 
    time fighting Duke because of his star outfit because it was a very thick and 
    sturdy armor.  Rod will also tell Duke that he wants to borrow it because he 
    will try to make a weapon out of it.  
    
      "Sometimes you even gotta make a fool of yourself to come up with a 
    weapon." - Rod
    
      After that, Duke will change the topic and tell both Rue and Rod that how 
    come there is nothing happening at the tower but Rod will say that they just 
    need to rest and wait for the enemies move because it can be a trap.
      *Story*
    
      After that, go to the inn, talk to Ms. Cartha, go to your room.

       As Rue is sleeping, someone is calling him.  He looks outside and sees 
    Claire and she is walking towards the alley that leads to the Tavern and 
    Hobbs' Shop.  Rue runs out of the room and out of the inn.
      *Story*
    
      *Interesting stuff to check out*
       If you go to the Grasslands take note that Rod is sleeping.
    
      I found a Silver Coin beside the Hotel [but maybe the items are found at 
    random].  Follow her so go to the place where Hobbs' Shop and the Tavern is.  
    You would not see Claire there so go back to the main part of town.  You will 
    see Claire go to the docks, follow her.  At the docks you would not see 
    Claire anywhere, talk to Duke, he is somewhere below.  
    
      *Story*
       Rue asks Duke if he saw a girl in a purple cloak that is about his height.  
    Duke says that he did not see anyone like that.
      *Story*
    
      Leave the docks.

       Rue will wonder what is going on.
      *Story*
    
      Go to the Grasslands and talk to Rod.
    
      *Story*
       Again, Rue will ask if Rod saw a girl in a purple cloak and that is about 
    his height.  Duke will say that he did not see anyone because he was busy 
    calming the Johnny Wolf because it seems like Johnny Wolf seen a ghost or 
    something.  Rue will wonder about the word 'ghost' but he believes that it 
    couldn't be.

       Careful not to attack him at his front or side meaning attack him ONLY at

    following you, just run around the place or around him and make sure that he 
    doesn't come into contact with you.

      It will automatically be morning and what you do here is you leave town and 
    go to the Tower of Maya (which was formerly the Lakeside).
    
      If you talk to Graham, he will tell something good.
    
      "Damn, you're way too eager.  You might end up dead if you don't take a 
    deep breath and calm down.  Remember, the secret to longetivity is 
    composure." - Graham
    
      Go to the Tower of Maya.

      Just go enter the top door.
    
      *Story*
       Inside, Trap Master will be there and tell Rue that Rue is on his trap.  
    Trap Master will also say that Rue has nowhere to go but up.
      *Story*
    
      In the round room, just run up and...
    
      *Story*
       Trap will tell Rue that he left a surprise at the door and that Rue should 
    not try to escape because he is trapped.
      *Story*
    
      Now, if you talk to the door, you will receive damage.  Now run up, fight 
    the enemies you encounter such as Wabbits, Witches and Pumpkins.  All are 
    easy to kill but you need to use Witch - Pumpkin Cannon to get rid of the 
    witches that are on a platform, annoying you because you can't get them using 
    physical attacks.

      Here just go get 2 Gold Coins (1) but pumpkins will bust through the door

      You have to jump across the moving stuff.  You can only step on the ones 
    that are moving right to left or vice versa and the ones that are turning 
    clockwise.  If you fall, the place below will be surrounded by force fields 
    and you have to kill all the pumpkins in order to get out.  Kill the witch on 
    the floating platform (p) and go get the 2 Star Stones and step on the 
    Restore HP and leave the place using the top exit.
    
      In the next place, you have to hop on the big round thing in the middle and 
    enemies (Pumpkins) will fall down and you just have to defeat them all until 
    you get to the top.  At the top, from the round thing, go up the stairs and 
    get out of the room.

      The room is actually round, but this is ASCII map, that is the best that it 
    can be.  First go get the 3 Gold Coins (they are on the lowest level of the 
    room and move a clockwise in order to see it.  After getting this, go up and 
    exit the place.

      Again, just like the previous room, just go get the 2 Gold coins and if you 
    pass through the door, pumpkins will come out and you have to defeat them in 
    order for the door to open again.  Just exit through the door.

      First go step on (1) but if you fall you can step on the middle (x) to get 
    back up.  After stepping on one, beat up the Wabbits first because they are 
    blocking access to the other platform (2 and 3).  You have to step on (1) 
    then (2) then (3), you can wait for (3) to stop unlike (1 and 2) because at 
    the end of (3)s ride it will not throw you but it would wait for a few 
    seconds.  Go get the Legendary Helmet (L) and step on the Restore HP spot.  
    Go exit the place.
    
      Just enter the door and
    
      In the next room, Claire is there.
    
      *Story*
       Claire will then turn into Mode Master.  She will tell Rue that she envies 
    Claire because Rue is willing to sacrifice for Claire.  Rue gets mad and 
    charges to attack Mode Master but Mode Master will change into Claire so Rue 
    stops.  Mode Master will leave and Doll Master will arrive.  Doll Master is 
    going to reveal that he is the one with the large claw and he killed Claire.  
    Rue gets furious and challenges Doll Master.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - 'He'*
       Challenge:  Impossible - N/A
    
       Just die in battle, I believe you can't win.  Also if you checked out the 
    Message Board of GameFAQs, there is an article there that says that he 
    replayed the game with stronger characters and he fought for a long time 
    against Doll Master but it seemed that Doll Master has infinite HP.
    
      *Story*
       After the battle, Doll Master will again seal Rue's power and Maya will 
    arrive then Doll Master will tell her that they don't need her anymore so 
    Psycho Master takes the book and lifts it up to the air.  Doll Master will 
    command Rue to tear apart the Book of Cosmos.  Rue will follow and he, using 
    his somewhat like a psychic power, tear the book apart.
    
     ********************
     * 'Book of Cosmos' ***
     **********************
     *  Boss:  Atenacius  *
     **********************
    
       Rue will wakeup somewhere and he is together with Princess Maya.  Princess 
    Maya will heal Rue's injuries and tells him that they are inside the Book of 
    Cosmos and the Book of Cosmos is a 'Gateway to the Cosmos'.  She will also 
    tell Rue that Rue has tremendous power because he was able to destroy the 
    book and that Doll Master can't do that.  Princess Maya will ask Rue to go 
    see Atenacius, an Aeon that sealed his spirit inside the Book of Cosmos.  
    Princess Maya tells Rue that maybe Atenacius knows something about Rue.
    
       Atenacius will come and he looks like a face that is merged with a book.  
    Atenacius will ask Princess Maya about how did the book get destroyed but 
    Princess Maya will tell him that it might have something to do with the stone 
    that is on Rue's forehead.  Atenacius will get furious and says that he knows 
    Rue, and he is Valen's servant.  Atenacius says that he gets disgusted seeing 
    Rue and on the stone.  Atenacous will tell Rue that he (Rue) is evil and he 
    is going to resurrect Valen and get the Dewprism.  Atenacius will say that he 
    must kill you so that Valen won't get resurrected because the Dewprism can 
    bring about disaster.

      *Boss Battle - Atenacius*
       Challenge:  Easy - Medium
    
       In this battle, attack the old man's beard.  He will counter attack or 
    attack you using his beard too but if you are about my level, meaning you 
    bought the Mythril stuff, it doesn't matter.  There are also 'Electric Beard 
    Slice' [I made that up {^_^}] attack which also gives pitiful damage.  He 
    will move from one large platform to another so you have to jump using the 
    small platforms (note that sometimes, HP or MP up items appear there).  He 
    also has something homing attack which you can't avoid.
    
      *Story*
       After the battle, Rue wonders what is going on.  A few moments later, 
    Atenacius come back and say that it is his world and he just can't die.  He 
    tells Rue how dare he tries to fight his sovereign power.  Doll Master 
    arrives and laughs at Atenacius because of bragging about his power, he then 
    attack Atenacius and absorbs his power.  So now, Maya's Book of Cosmos has no 
    power.  Doll Master tells Rue and Maya a story.
    
       Doll Master says that Rue and himself's fate was pre-determined when they 
    were born.  It was because when the Aeons still existed, one Aeon has the 
    power to rival the gods, he made a [Relic] that embodies all the forces of 
    the universe.  It is the purest form of crystal, it has life, space, time, 
    logic and will.  It can control time and nature's creations, the ultimate 
    power of the universe, the Dewprism.  It defines heaven, earth, time and 
    life, simply a microcosm of the universe, meaning having it is having the 
    universe.  Valen wanted to be a god so other Aeons where afraid of him and 
    killed him.  Valen's body died but his spirit, together with the Dewprism was 
    transported to another dimension.  Later, Aeons died except for one that 
    sealed his spirit inside a book, which is Atenacius.  So now, Doll Master 
    says that now the enemies are defeated, Rue and himself can now do their 
    purpose, to resurrect Valen.  Valen cannot escape or can be set free from his 
    dimension.
    
       After telling that, Atenacius arrives and say that Valen's dolls can 
    resurrect Valen.  Doll Master attacks him again and he tells Rue that Rue 
    needs to serve his purpose.
    
       Continuing the story, Doll Master was the one that woke Rue up because 
    they are brothers.  Rue had a gem on his forehead, a fragment of the 
    Dewprism, a life stone.  Both Rue and Doll Master are to do resurrect Valen.  
    Rue tells Doll Master that Doll Master is lying but Doll Master replies by 
    saying that he is not, Rue just lost his memory.  Rue woke up only five years 
    ago but he was awake for a hundred years so he retained all his memory and 
    knows everything that he has to do.  The sad part is that he was a defect, 
    his life stone is dead so he has no power.  He can't fulfill his duty so he 
    needs Rue. He called Rue three years ago but Rue gets mad and asks why Doll 
    Master killed Claire.  Doll Master replies by saying that he had no intention 
    of killing Claire and it was just an accident.  Rue says that he hates Doll 
    Master and that he is not help.  Doll Master tells Rue that it doesn't matter 
    because with Atenacius power, he can de-petrify Prima Doll and let Prima Doll 
    break the seal.
    
       After that, both Rue and Princess Maya awaken at the Tower.  Rue says to 
    her that he needs to go to the Ruins but Princess Maya tells him that she 
    can't help because the Book of Cosmos is gone.
    
       *Cut Scene*
        Something will be floating above the skies and forms a Fortress.
    
        Doll Master will be talking to the other 'Masters', his subordinates.  He 
    will tell them that he and Psycho Master will go up to Valen's Fortress.  He 
    asks Mode Master, he will call her Kirielle, together with Trap Master to 
    stay and prevent anyone from going up Valen's Fortress.  Kirielle will say 
    that she was proud to be with Doll Master.  Doll Master tells Trap Master, 
    but he calls him Narcius, not to die for no purpose.  He will call Psycho 
    Master, Karwyn and tells him that it is time to go.  Doll Master will be 
    called Ruecian and they will say farewell to each other.
       *Cut Scene*
    
      Rue tells himself that he knows that his feelings may not be real but he 
    knows his promise is, which is to revive Claire.  He will go get Dewprism, 
    revive Claire and kill Doll Master.

    the setting) story I created for this walkthrough]

      Get a Bubba coin and avoid fighting the other monsters if the Witch coin is 
    still present in your Coin Inventory.  Just go to the area with steam coming 
    out of the ground, you will meet Trap Master there.
    
      *Story*
       Trap Master tells Rue that he cannot go on any further and he is going to 
    finish Rue now.

      *Boss Battle - Trap Master*
       Challenge:  Easy - Medium
    
       Just stay at the center and hopefully you have the Witch coin or the Bubba 
    coin.  Transform into any of the 2, preferably the Witch and use Pumpkin Shot 
    if not use Bubba - Hammer.  If you don't have any of the two, it would be a 
    hard battle.  Avoid stepping on the blinking platforms because they will 
    explode and deal you damage.  Also, when a shadow is on top of you, move to 
    another platform because a spiked ball will fall on top of you (but it really 
    isn't necessary if you have Witch or Bubba).  
    
      *Story*
       Trap Master attempts to blow himself up but he got no power left and he 
    promised Doll Master that he would not die in vane.  He tells Rue that Mode 
    Master is up ahead.  Rue advances to the next room and Trap Master apologizes 
    to Doll Master for being a failure.
      *Story*
    
      On the next area, step on the HP Restore if you received damage.  Advance 
    to the next area and there will be another extra boss battle area.
    
      *Story*
       Rue will see Mode Master in a Claire's form.  Rue gets mad and asks Mode 
    Master to change her form because it doesn't affect him anymore.  But she 
    tells Rue to go to Doll Master and follow Doll Master because he is Rue's 
    brother.  Rue says no and that he will never forgive Doll Master because he 
    killed Claire.  After that Mode Master transforms into Rue and tells Rue to 
    see who is better.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Mode Master*
       Challenge:  Medium
    
       She is in a Rue form and she has the same attacks as you.  Just jump 
    attack her.  When she sustained a lot of damage, she will begin transforming 
    herself into different monsters, even monsters that Rue can't transform into 
    (like the Behemoth).  Again just use jump attacks.
    
      *Story*
       After the battle, Mode Master, in Rue's form, asks Rue to finish her.  Rue 
    charges her but Mode Master will transform into Claire's form.  Rue stops and 
    Mode Master asks why he stopped because she thought that, as Rue said 
    earlier, it doesn't affect Rue anymore.  She runs and tells Rue that you 
    cannot defeat Psycho Master and if you did defeat him, you cannot defeat Doll 
    Master.  She tells Rue that Rue couldn't stop them.
      *Story*
    
      Go to the area with the blowing wind, if you are very low on HP (below 
    1/4), just attack the enemies there and get the stuff that they drop.  Finish 
    the area and you will be at the Cliff area.  There will be a Restore HP there 
    and go to the peak.
    
      At the peak ...
    
      *Story*
       Rue sees Wylaf and asks him for help.  Wylaf read Rue's mind and tells Rue 
    that he needed his help in order to go to the Fortress.  Wylaf gives it to 
    Rue and Rue will be surprised that Wylaf gave it easily.  Wylaf asks Rue why 
    he looks troubled and Rue tells him that it is because Doll Master told him 
    that his purpose was to resurrect Valen and not really to revive Claire.  Rue 
    says that Doll Master can control him.  Wylaf stops Rue from underestimating 
    his self and tells Rue that he (Wylaf) believes in Rue.  He believes that 
    Rue's strength comes from will and not from duty and he can overcome it, Rue 
    has the capacity to choose his will, to revive Claire, over his duty, to 
    resurrect Valen.  Rue thanks Wylaf for the words.

      *Story*
       Belle and Duke is there and tells Rue that they are amazed that Rue was 
    able to get the Dragon Wings from Wylaf.  Rue tells them that he was able to 
    do it because of Klaus, Belle and Duke and everyone's help.  Belle tells him 
    that why Rue is always so humble, very much unlike the immature one that is 
    with her.  Duke assumes and tells that Belle is talking about Mint but Belle 
    says that it was Duke.  Duke says that he might be immature but he is 
    preparing a new act because Rue is his lifelong rival and that if he acts 
    like Rue, he can beat Rue.  Belle asks Rue if he is going to go and Rue will 
    say that he will go for Claire.  Belle and Duke will say that Rue is so 
    selfless, willing to risk his life.  After that, in a serious manner, Belle 
    will wish Rue good luck and Duke bids him with happy hunting.  Rue will thank 
    them and that he hopes to see them again.
      *Story*
    
      If you have not yet destroyed the Legendary stuff yet, go beat up Pollywogs 
    and Gudons [I suggest that you get Gudons because that is what I did] 
    (remember to get only enough since the Legendary stuff will break after 10 
    meals) [Don't waste time beating Fire Blobs and Fungies because +10 HP or +10 
    MP is not worth it] after destroying it, the bartender will give you a 
    Platinum Coin.
    
      After that, if you think you have missed something, go check out the 
    section Side Stuff.  If you have done all of them go to the inn and register.

     - "If you go see Mel after getting your wings from Wylaf (Rue's Story), 
    there'll be another story line about Rue and his doubts.  She'll ask ya 
    questions that u can answer any which way.  Good to prolong the story."
    
     - "With Rue, after getting your wings from Wylaf (or just some time before 
    you go to Valen's) stop by the Hotel.  Marco should be standing in front of 
    the hotel.  If u talk to him, he'll say something about hearing an 
    arguement and about to girls with red hair.  Go up to the rooms and you'll see 
    Maya and Mint. It's a funny lil story line.  Ahh, sibling rivalry!"
      
      Now examine the town's gate and go to Valen's Fortress.

      *Story*
       Rue will be at Carona Forest at the place where you first met Klaus and 
    Mira.  He is preparing to transform and Elena will arrive.  Elena tells Rue 
    that she is going to make pumpkin pie and she expects Rue to come over.  Rue 
    promises to Elena that he will come back.  Elena asks Rue to be careful.  Rue 
    then transforms into Wylaf and Mint will arrive and hops on Rue for a ride.  
    Rue shakes her out and tells her that he has to go alone.
    
       At Valen's Fortress, Rue sees Prima Doll.  Prima Doll tells Rue that Doll 
    Master threatened him that if he did not break the seal, Doll Master will 
    destroy the town so he broke the seal.  Rue tells Prima Doll that it is not 
    his fault and that it is Doll Master's.  Rue will ask Prima Doll to wait for 
    him and Prima Doll tells Rue that he is impressed because before, Rue was 
    passive and hesitant but now he is very determined and strong.  Rue promises 
    to Prima Doll that he is going to beat up the bad guys and after that, Prima 
    Doll turns back into a Cube and Rue promises that he will be back.

     You cannot attack the Shaolons (you can use long range abilities though 
    [like Witch - Pumpkin Shot or Specter - {ability}])with your attack so it is 
    better to leave them alone.  Just jump attack or attack 3x then jump back 
    when fighting the Behemoths. [But also it is a good idea to get beaten up 
    here by the Behemoths because you can increase your Maximum HP].

       Mint will arrive at room (1) and will wonder why the 2 center I don't know 
    what they are called or [IDKWTAC] are lighted.
      *Story*
    
    Room 2, 4, 6 & 8 is like a curved room that has enemies (Jinns and 
    Hellhounds).  They can be used if you want to refill your MP or get their 
    coins to gain the wind (Jinn - Tornado), fire and water (Hellhound - Ice Blow  
    and Flame) elemental abilities.
    
    __________________________________________________Objective Sheet____________
    Here is what you should do:
    
      Your objective is to light the two [IDKWTAC] on the center.
    
      for example:
              
       I I I I
         \ /
          |
       Light these two and keep the ones beside them unlighted.
    
      A rock will fall and you have to take them to room 1.  Note that you cannot 
    attack / fight, even magic when you are carrying a rock.
    
      To clarify further, you have to do the following steps (steps [a] then [b] 
    and so on) but you can do the rooms in any order.  [Thanks to chojin66 for 
    this one]
    
    __________________________________________________Objective Sheet____________

      *Story*
       Rue will see Psycho Master and Psycho Master will say that he cannot allow 
    Rue to go on further and disturb what the Doll Master is doing.  It is 
    because that the Doll Master is taking the Cursed Crossways wherein you will 
    face the fears of your past.  He also cannot allow Rue to go back and Rue has 
    to end the battle there.  Also, he will say that his destiny is to serve his 
    master, which is Doll Master and he will release his full power before 
    fighting Rue because Rue is the brother of his master.

      *Boss Battle - Psycho Master*
       Challenge:  Medium
    
       Do not touch the invisible barrier because it will deal you damage.  Note 
    again that you can only attack him at his back.  When he floats and chases 
    you, run around the room (but avoid the invisible barrier) and around him.  
    When he casts the blue floating things, just get hit by them, it is only 
    cheap damage anyway.  Also he casts a circular attack that moves in all 
    directions, just jump to evade that attack.
    
      *Story*
       After the battle, Psycho Master charges Rue but Rue will attack him.  
    Psycho Master dies and Rue wonders why Psycho Master did it on purpose.  Rue 
    proceeds to the Cursed Crossways.

      Here you have to go through all the teleporters, beating the enemies at the 
    place you will go to.  I also believe that there is some kind of order here 
    but sadly, I can't remember.  Well anyway, the enemies here are pitiful so 
    you can easily defeat them.  Also if you are low on HP in the degree of:  
                             Ultra low - Fight at 1 or 3
                             Low       - Fight at 3 or 7
                             Medium    - Fight at 6 or 7
      to regain health (by beating up enemies and getting the potions (the red or 
    blue stuff that they leave behind).
    
      After beating all the rooms, the center will have a save point and (A) will 
    become a teleporter which has a Restore HP, save and hop onto it.
    
      *Story*
       At the next room, Doll Master tells Rue that he was amazed at his brother 
    for getting that far.  Rue still rejects him so he doesn't want to be called 
    Doll Master's brother.  Doll Master tries to convince Rue about accepting his 
    true purpose of resurrecting Valen and that Rue can't deny it forever because 
    he can never escape.  It was fate that reunited them.  Rue tells Doll Master 
    that he doesn't care about Valen and he only cares about reviving Claire.  
    Rue could have accepted Doll Master if he just did not kill Claire.  Again, 
    Doll Master says that it was just an accident and that if they got the 
    Dewprism, they can just revive Claire.  Rue gets mad and says to Doll Master 
    that he just toyed with Claire's life.  Even if Doll Master bring Claire 
    back, he still won't forgive Doll Master.  He will tell Doll Master that he 
    did not come for duty, and that his mind is set and there is no turning back, 
    he is going to get rid of Doll Master and bring Claire back.  Doll Master 
    says that if that is what Rue thinks, then they have to settle the fight.  He 
    also tells Rue not to worry because he is not going to use the seal spell.  
    He removes the Doll Master outfit and know he is the guy with the large claw.  
    He tells Rue that he will kill Rue the same way he killed Claire.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Doll Master *
       Challenge:  Medium - Hard - Impossible (Doll Master can cheat)
    
       He has a lot of attacks such as the 'Claw Swipe' and for that, you just 
    have to jump back.  He has a 'White Magic Loop' which would lift you up and 
    you will take damage and throws you aside, immediately jump because he will 
    use another 'Claw Swipe'.  He has a 'Black Projectile' attack which you can 
    avoid by running far away from its casting point (let it chase you to the 
    other side of the screen) but it does pitiful damage so it doesn't matter.  
    Also, he has the 'Charge Grab' and you know if its coming because he will 
    stand and his body would emit stars, when you see that, run to the direction 
    where Doll Master is facing (meaning if he is facing right, run right, if he 
    is facing left, run to the left), if you get caught, you will suffer MAJOR 
    damage.  After that attack, if you did not get hit, you can use a 3-hit combo 
    against him.  Sometimes, you can jump kick him but it is not very advisable 
    because Doll Master, just like Rod, can block attacks.  The cheat, sometimes, 
    Doll Master cheats by using the 'White Magic Loop Infinity' [Wow, what a 
    lousy name, I just made that up].  He uses it continually and you will just 
    die from it [happened to me once].
    
      *Story*
       After that, Doll Master desperately wants to get up but Rue says to him 
    that the battle is over.  Doll Master says to himself that he still needs to 
    fulfill his duty and fight Rue.  Rue will tell him that as long as Doll 
    Master is tied to the duty, Doll Master can't beat him.  Rue will tell Doll 
    Master that he is unlike him because he fights not for duty.  Doll Master 
    then asks what Rue is doing.  Rue answers him by telling that saving Claire 
    is not a duty because nobody told him to do it, it was his will.  Rue tells 
    Doll Master that he doesn't care about him being created by Valen and that he 
    just would not follow orders.  Doll Master then mumbles to himself about him, 
    sacrificing everything for Valen, everything in terms of will.  He will say 
    that he was a fool and that if only wasn't a defect, he could have never 
    killed Claire and that could kept Rue's will dormant.  He will die, Rue will 
    remorse a little, and then he proceeds to the next room.
    
      At the next room, Valen tells Rue about Rue's loyalty.  Rue asks Valen if 
    Valen was trapped in another dimension, how come Valen is there.  Valen 
    answers Rue by telling him that when the Fortress was summoned his spirit was 
    revived but still he doesn't have a physical body.  Rue will ask Valen on how 
    can he revive Claire and Valen tells him that he can revive Claire by using 
    the life stone on his forehead.  Since the life stone is a fragment of the 
    Dewprism, it has the power to control it.  Rue then revives Claire but when 
    Claire's body appears, it is not moving.  Then Valen enters Claire's body, he 
    (or she [^_^]) will tell Rue that resurrecting Valen was not their only 
    purpose, and that they should also provide a body.  So now, Rue provided 
    Valen with a body.  Rue gets furious and demands that Valen leave Claire's 
    body.  Valen gets mad and tells Rue about his disrespectful attitude towards 
    his creator.  He will call Rue his slave but Rue will say that he is not a 
    slave because he has will and then he again demands that Valen leave the body 
    right now or else he is going to kill Valen.  Valen then tells Rue that 
    broken dolls are to be purified and that can be done by shattering them, 
    Valen will destroy Rue's body and will.  Rue cry out that Valen can never 
    destroy his will.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Valen*
       Challenge:  Medium
    
       In this battle, Valen, in Claire's body will be floating and moving 
    around.  You can damage him (or her) if he is near you and you try to jump 
    attack him (or her).  Also, Valen summons a big creature.  This big creature 
    has three attacks.  First it can spin around and damage that comes along its 
    path.  Try jumping when it is near and going to slice you.  Another one is 
    when he is jumping, the ground shakes and when you are on the ground, you 
    will receive damage.  Jump when the big guy is about to fall on the ground to 
    avoid taking damage.  Also, he can restore Valen's HP.  He does this when he 
    is like doing a stupid pose.  Just run towards it and attack it.  It is a 
    good time to attack Valen if you kill this guy first (although he will summon 
    this guy again).  You can also get restore HP or MP stuff from the big guy if 
    you run out of HP (I don't think you will run out of HP).
      
    
      *Story*
       Valen is rejected by the body so he is on a spirit form again.  He tells 
    Rue that he couldn't possess a human's body and only can possess a doll's.  
    Valen then casts the bind spell on Rue and as Valen prepares to enter Rue's 
    body, Doll Master arrives and unseals Rue.  Now, Valen knows that the two 
    dolls that he created is fighting against him.  Doll Master will tell Rue 
    that Rue's will can conquer anything but Valen shoots a spirit blast on Doll 
    Master.  But after doing that, Valen's spirit is breaking down and he begins 
    to fade.  Valen then tells Rue and Doll Master that he will become the light 
    and say that he will pass through the Dewprism and Valen disappeared.  Rue 
    goes to Doll Master and finally accepts him as a brother.  Doll Master, 
    nearly dying, thanks Rue because that is the best thing that he heard in a 
    hundred years time.  But suddenly, Valen arrives, as the light.

       Challenge:  Easy - Medium
    
       Note that in this battle, Rue's attack 2 is already a defensive posture.  
    Rue's defensive posture would prevent him from falling after an attack and I 
    believe that he takes up less damage.  Here, the only time you can damage him 
    when he is a bit red and that is after storming you with a rapid fire of 
    White star-like stuff attack.  But before that, if you are low on HP, just 
    grab the blue potions that randomly appear at the battlefield.  And, when he 
    is flying, he will attempt to grab you so just run away from it and just run 
    to some direction when it is going to blast you with the 2 barreled rainbow 
    colored rapid star-like stuff attack.  When you are seeing an overhead view, 
    it is preparing for the 'suck' maneuver.  Here, just run down and move left 
    or right so you can avoid the shots and avoid getting sucked in.  
    
       Now, when he is hovering, he will storm you with a rapid fire of white 
    stuff attack. When that happens, use Attack 2 so that you would receive small 
    damage and you won't fall back.  After the storm, he will be blinking red and 
    use a jump attack on him.  It will take 4 jump attacks to defeat the guy.

     Congratulations, you have finished Rue's story.  If you like to know, it 
    took me 11:38 hours to finish Rue's game and that I did Rue's second (I 
    played with Mint first).  It took me a long time because I wrote maps for the 
    Ghost Temple and wrote on paper the story.
    
      If you have finished Rue's story only:
       - After the credits, you will see something like End of Rue's story.  You 
    will be asked if you want to save the game which is Mint 0:00.  Save your 
    game and you will see Rue's picture has a color now.  After that, you will be 
    asked if you want to: - Play the Mint Episode
                          - Return to the Title Screen
                          - Return to the Save Screen
          do anything you want.
    
      But if you have finished Rue's and Mint's story, proceed to the section, So 
    you've finished the game.

      *Story*
       Mint's story begins as she runs in a hall and opens the door and enters 
    the dining room.  Gramps will tell her that it is not yet time to eat and 
    that she should go back to her room, but she said that she was very hungry so 
    she tasted one of the foods.
      *Story*

      Now that you can control Mint, press the confirm button on all the foods 
    until you have tasted them all then press the confirm button on the chair or 
    throne {whichever you want to call it}.
    
      *Story*
       After tasting, she then sits on the King's chair or throne, then Gramps 
    will tell her not to sit there but Mint says that since she will be queen 
    anyway, it is ok, but her younger sister arrives, namely Maya.  The Doll 
    Master accompanies Maya {the weird looking guy}.  Maya and tells Mint that 
    she is not worthy to be the successor of the throne and it is already decided 
    by the High Council where in the King also approved that the successor 
    wouldn't be Mint even if she was the eldest in the family.  Mint asks why 
    that decision was made but Maya said many reasons such as she is childish, 
    selfish, lazy and the list goes on.  Mint gets angry, shows Maya the 'finger' 
    and charges her magic to attack her sister with but Maya was holding the 
    'Book of Cosmos' the greatest Aeon [Relic] which is a powerful magic caster 
    so Mint doesn't have a chance against her.  Mint asks if Maya was just joking 
    but Maya was serious and attacks her using a pumpkin [Mint hates pumpkins].  
    The pumpkin chases Mint out of the room.

      {You will see Rue, just passing by the ship's deck}
    
      *Story*
       It was already been two years but still there are many things going on in 
    Mint's mind.  About her getting the [Relic] and beat Maya up, succeed in the 
    throne and dominate the world.  She also thinks about making Maya her slave, 
    let Maya clean the toilet and stuff.
    
       There are also two hoodlums, Smokey {small fat guy} and Blood {tall guy}.  
    They thought about stealing your money but they didn't do it.  Then the ship 
    bumps a red thing, you will fall down the ship and get rescued by Davis, the 
    one who manages the docks.

        The two hoodlums will push you and you will fall down.  Mint gets angry 
    and wanted to beat up those two and Mint heard that they are going to the 
    forest {Carona Forest} so Mint decided to go there too.

      First things first so what you should do, if you like is to save.  To save, 
    go to the 'Inn' see  #5 on Map.  Enter the 'Inn' go to the counter and press 
    confirm button at the log book (that is what it looks like for me), select 
    register.  (See Saving in 'You need to know these stuff' section.  You can 
    choose to go to the church.  Talk to Doyle (the person in there), say that 
    you like to pray, then he will ask you if you like to make a donation but 
    since you only have 100 G so don't bother.  There is nothing to do at the 
    Hotel.  Elena's House is locked.  The store doesn't sell anything yet but the 
    storekeeper will tell you about the antique shop.  He will say that the 
    antique shop is in another side of town and the shop's keeper Klaus is out 
    together with his wife Mira to research about the [Relic] in the forest.  He 
    also will say that the antique shop is being run by Klaus' daughter, Elena 
    [because Klaus is not there] but she isn't there because she has gone to the 
    forest to go looking for her parents.  You can talk to the people there and 
    they will say some interesting things so try talking to them (specially to 
    Marco).  After that, proceed to B (see Map).

      Here, first check the barrel, it contains a Silver Coin.  Go to the tavern 
    if you like and talk to Annette (the waitress) many times and she will treat 
    you to drink either 'Milk' or 'Root beer'.  Milk restores 10% of your MP and 
    the Root beer restores your MP 25% (so choose the 'Root beer').  There is 
    also a sign beside the Tavern's door (leads you to the outside of the 
    Tavern).  There will be a fight at Grass Fields, the fighting fee is 100 G 
    and the winners prize is 1000 G.  Leave the tavern.  Hobbs' Shop is locked so 
    leave the place and go next to C (see Map).

      Maybe you would like to check out the docks because sometimes it contains 
    random coins that can be found.
    
      Now you are back to the main town of Carona, if you like why not 'Save' 
    again.  Leave the place (D) and now you will head to Carona Forest.

      Walk, then jump the three stumps, then your first battle.  You will be 
    fighting against the Pollywog, (see Fighting, and Increasing Parameters in 
    'You need to know these stuff' section) they are EASY, just whack them.  The 
    game will say that when you attack an enemy, your will gain MP.  Also the 
    enemies drop potions.  The Blue Potion restores some of your HP and the Red 
    Potion restores some of your MP.  The restoration of your HP when picking up 
    the blue potions or restoration of your MP by picking up red potions or 
    attacking enemies physically depends on how strong the enemy is [If the enemy 
    is pitiful, you will gain 1 or when it is strong, you will gain 2 or more].  
    The enemies keep coming back so after beating enough (two of them I think) 
    advance to the place where you need to use magic to defeat the enemies (see 
    Magic, 'You need to know these stuff' section).  One hit will kill them, now 
    cross the water (shallow water), take the 3x Bronze Coins in the treasure box 
    (or whirling pink thingie) [would you mind if I call it box or chest or 
    something and not whirling pink thingie].  Onto the next section

      Just walk, fight, walk, jump, walk, fight, jump or something.  Just reach 
    the exit.  Nothing special here except two new enemies, the Saber Tiger and 
    the Mandola.  The Saber Tiger is fast and deals 3-8 damage to you.  You can 
    kill it in about 3 hits.  The Mandola attacks in long range, and can be 
    killed within 3 hits.  Before you leave the area, make your you have at least 
    30 HP and 50 MP, you'll need it, trust me.

       *Story*
        Here you will see the antique shop's daughter, Elena, together with Blood 
    and Smokey.  They are going to steal money from her.  Mint thinks of this 
    situation as she becoming a hero and settling the score with those two for 
    knocking her down at the docks so she decided to beat the two up.  First, 
    Mint kicks Blood on the face, then again.  Then Mint calls them dumb so Blood 
    gets mad and attacks you.
       *Story*
      
      Here is your first *BOSS* battle against Blood and Smokey.  
    
       *Boss Battle- Smokey & Blood*
        Challenge:  Easy
    
        What you do here is run until only one is at your back [try to trap one 
    using obstacles].  When he is alone, Set Magic to White - Vulcan.  Blast him 
    until about 18 - 25 hits and the fight is over.
    
       *Story*
        Elena thanks Mint and Mint says that it is alright.  Mint asks her what 
    is she doing in the forest and Elena says that she is looking for her 
    parents.  Mint asks what her parents and Elena replies by saying that her 
    parents are researching about the [Relic].  Elena asks Mint to accompany her 
    in finding her parents, Mint agrees because she knew that this is an 
    opportunity to find out more about the [Relic].

      Here, you will talk to Elena's parents, Klaus and his wife, Mira.  You will 
    meet Rue here for the first time.
    
       *Story*
        Klaus, Elena's father already know what Mint is about to ask because 
    someone has asked him earlier, it was Rue (Mint thought that Rue was some 
    kind of weirdo ^_^).  He will tell you about the [Relics].  Since he has 
    spent his life searching for ruins, he found out certain things.  Klaus says 
    that 100 years ago there was a magician that was also searching for the 
    [Relics].   The magician lived in an Atelier (a magician's workshop) which 
    has a key to somewhere that could probably lead to the [Relic] but the 
    problem is that it is below the steep cliff and Rue and Klaus tried going 
    down but they both broke their ankles.  What Mint is supposed to do is to go 
    down the cliff and get hold of the investigations and findings that the 
    magician knows.  Without much hesitation, Mint crazily jumped down the cliff.

    at the same time and kill them in nearly the same time (about 1 or 2 seconds 
    delay before one will again come back to life) [I haven't tried using White - 
    Spread or Blue - Cutter, please try them and E-Mail me if it works fine].
    
      After defeating them both, the steps will appear leading you to the exit.

        Try running around the perimeter of the place and looking at your shadow.  
    The shadow depends on the lighting of the place.  Pretty cool huh!
    
      Enter the Atelier but ... *BOSS* battle, Nightmare.
    
       *Boss Battle - Nightmare*
        Challenge:  Easy - Medium    
    
        Just try running around, while evading the attacks and when Nightmare 
    closes, jump away.  After getting used to his pattern, beat it up to the 
    finish by using White - Spread.  When you are low on MP, try attacking and 
    evading attacks.
    
      After finishing the battle, proceed inside Cadmon's Atelier.

       *Story*
        Mint tries to attack the vault and kick it but it wouldn't open.  Klaus 
    enters the Atelier and examines the vault.  He opens it using a the switch on 
    the vault.  The vault will open and reveals a diary and a key.  Klaus tries 
    to read the diary and it tells about the [Relic] which was created by the 
    Aeons.  Aeons are the powerful magicians that can change the stars orbit or 
    move landscapes but mysteriously all of them perished.  Now you should be 
    heading back to town.

       *Story*
        Mira, Klaus wife is talking to Ms. Cartha, the innkeeper.  She asks Ms. 
    Cartha to let Mint stay at the inn for free so now you can recover HP at the 
    inn.  Mira tells Mint to proceed to their house (Klaus house).
       *Story*
    
      I suggest that you go to the inn first to save.  Go inside the inn, talk to 
    Ms. Cartha and she will ask you to Recover / Recover & Register / Go to your 
    room.  Choose Recover & Register then save your game [sadly, the inn only 
    restores your HP].  After that, if you like, check out your room.  Nothing 
    really important, just talk to the bed and sleep [it doesn't replenish your 
    MP either :(].
    
      Leave the place and go check out Hobbs' place.  Even though you can't buy 
    anything here yet, just make a trip their to find out more stuff about the 
    game.  In Hobbs' place, you can choose to [upgrade] your base strength, base 
    defense, maximum HP and maximum MP.  Your base strength will increase by 1 
    and the same goes for the base defense.  Your maximum HP and maximum MP will 
    increase by 10.  It costs 30,000 G for each one (base strength or base 
    defense or maximum HP or maximum MP).  It is ultra-mega-hyper [ok, you 
    probably understand already] expensive but if you give the Rare Wine to him 
    later in the game, you can buy one for 5,000 G.
    
      Now you can go to the tavern and replenish your MP (but I suggest not to).  
    Talk to the bartender and he will offer you Milk for 50 G (restores 10% MP), 
    Rootbeer 120 G (restores 25% MP) and Tropical Delight 220 G (restores 50% 
    MP).  Leave the tavern.
    
      Now to got to the shop.  At the item shop, talk to the shopkeeper, his name 
    is Tonio.  First sell your coins (monster coins not the Bronze or Silver 
    Coins).  Check out what he is selling.  At this point, he is selling
    
       Item Shop
        Item             Description          Cost
        Bronze Bracer  - Bonus Strength +4  - 1,000 G
        Silver Bracer  - Bonus Strength +8  - 3,000 G
        Bronze Belt    - Bonus Defense  +4  - 1,000 G
        Silver Belt    - Bonus Defense  +8  - 3,000 G
    
      If you have 3,000 G, go buy the Silver Bracer.  After that leave the shop.
    
      Now if you have confidence in yourself, try going to the Grasslands.  Here 
    try fighting Rod.
    
       *Story*
        Here, Rod introduces himself and his dog Johnny Wolf.  He says that he is 
    a weapon blacksmith and a swordsman.  Mint asks if she can see the weapons 
    but Rod said that he only shows his weapon in battle.  Mint asks Rod for 
    battle but Rod refuses because he turns Mint down.  Mint says to Rod that she 
    will leave so she turns around but she kicked Rod.  Rod finds out that you 
    are good so he decides to fight you for 100 G (you will win 1,000 G if you 
    beat him).  Also, Mint hates being called 'baby' so she tells Rod her name.  
    Pay the 100 G and do battle.
       *Story*
    
       *Boss Battle - Rod*
        Challenge:  Hard
    
        Approach him with caution.  Do not go near him when he is spiraling 
    either the ground or jumping one.  Try leading him to the obstacle (in the 
    middle).  He will stop spiraling so now run and attack him using a 3-hit 
    combo, then evade his attack by jumping back twice.  After that attack again 
    using a 3-hit then evade his attack by jumping back again twice.  Then run 
    around until he does again the spiraling move (either the jumping one or 
    ground one).  Repeat the above steps again till you win.
    
      If you win against him, you will get 1,000 G but if you lose then you 
    wasted your money.  So after that, go back to town and go to Klaus' House.  
    Go to the basement and talk to Klaus.
    
       *Story*
        He will tell you that according to the diary Mint found at the Atelier 
    below the cliff, an Aeon [Relic] is sealed by a high order of magic, which 
    even the magicians cannot break.  And according to the diary, the magician 
    will go to the Atelier of the Master Magician Elroy.  Now you are instructed 
    to go to Elroy's Atelier and get more info about the [Relic].  He also gives 
    Mint something that he found at the Atelier, the Red class of Magic. (^_^)

      After that, go talk to Marco, the kid outside town.  Talk to him twice 
    until he tells you about a something hidden in the stump in Carona Forest.  
    So now, head for the Hotel and ask for a room (it costs 500 G).

      First get the bed and examine the bed to sleep.  You will dream about some 
    monkey, jumping down the hollow stump.  [You might wonder that why did I let 
    you sleep in the hotel if you could have just slept at the inn.  1) is that 
    because you can get the Dream Stone here and 2) No you will not get the dream 
    if you slept at the inn.]  After that leave the Hotel and head for Carona 
    Forest.

      There are two kinds of enemies here, the Stinger and the Mandola.  The 
    Stinger is hard to hit so just measure the time when they are near your 
    attacking range, hit them.  When you reach the whithered plant, blast it with 
    your Blue Magic - Raindrops.  It will take a few hits and the plant will 
    grow.  Now, step on the plant (just jump to get to it) then get on the higher 
    elevation part (L) and take the (&) The Last Hero.  After that leave the 
    area.  You can leave the area by going right until you reach the wall and 
    jump towards the right.
    
      You will end up at the other open stump of the Carona Forest.  Now that you 
    are here, time to go search for the items that I listed that you should get 
    later, get them now, the Silver Coin and Bronze Coin (outside the Atelier).

    about the life of a dragon slayer named Highwind.  He will say that he always 
    wanted to read this and since you gave it to him, he will reward you into 
    giving his 4 Strength Ups that he bought from Hobbs.  Your base strength will 
    increase by 4 [yeah!, free stats].
    
      If you have the money, go to the shop and buy the Silver Belt, but if you 
    do not have enough money, go to the forest and beat the hell out of the 
    enemies there until you gathered enough money to do so.
    
      In town, you can talk to Graham and he will give you tips in playing the

       At the entrance, you will see Rue, he will say that he heard from Klaus 
    that Mint is going to the underground ruins so he decided to go too.  He 
    heard that the enemies here are strong so Mint and him needs to work 
    together.  He then jumps to the teleporter and Mint decided to hurriedly go 
    to Atelier so that she would get more of the stuff inside, she then follows 
    him . (why did Rue go ahead of Mint if they are to work together?)

    Just exit at (D).  The enemies here are Gudon (the red guy) and King Ant (the 
    black insect).  They have high defense against attack so use Blue - Droplets 
    on Gudon and any magic on the King Ant (I suggest you use Blue - Droplets on 
    him too so that you do not need to Set Magic again and again).

       Mint will wonder how did Rue get there so fast.  Rue will say to Mint that 
    there is something blocking their way.  But after that conversation, the 
    boulder begins to move and will most likely flatten anything on its way.
      *Story*
    
      RUN!, NOW!, don't mind Rue getting flattened.  I think the debris that are 
    dropping down the ceiling drops at random (I did it 6 times and I got 2 
    patterns.)  There is a time that both ceilings will fall, jump to avoid it.  
    Head for the place you started add and let the boulder crash and destroy the 
    obstacle.
    
      Go steal from the dead (he is not actually dead but unconscious), talk to 
    Rue's boots (he is still wearing it) to get a Bronze Coin.  Go step on the

    is only one exit here).

       Mint will see her OLD enemy Belle together with Duke.  She is assuming 
    that you are up to no good.  She is the one Mint beat up a year ago 
    somewhere.  Mint calls her an OLD hag [:P] and she gets enraged but Duke 
    tells her that she was only 30, for revealing her age, she whacks Duke (he 
    became unconscious).  After that she will attack Mint.
      *Story*
      
      *Boss Battle - Belle*
       Challenge:  Easy
    
       Just beat her like silly.  But , if you want a flawless victory, avoid her 
    when there are things that are circling around her until she throws them to 
    you (avoid those too!).
    
      *Story*
       Mint is sure that it was a victory but it is not, she took the Tiara from 
    you.  [After all that hard work [sniff] you [sniff] ... [sniff] ... you stole 
    it [sniff] ... from ... [sniff] me. [;_;]].  Mint gets mad and she demands it 
    back but Duke and Belle run away.  Then Mint goes after them.
      *Story*
    
      Back to the past room, it would seem like another boss battle with Skull 
    Beast but now, it is invincible and it is stronger.  Try whacking it once and 
    get the hell out.  Go to the left and step on the platform with the star 
    icon.
    
      Now, run like hell to the top by taking the inner belt (the one closer to 
    the center) and try avoiding the spiked iron balls by passing when you can 
    get a good clearing (it is quite alright to take a hit or two).
    
      *Story*
      It is a dead end, and the Skull Beast is close, Rue will kill the Skull 
    Beast and save the day [and your butt from being booted].  You will end up in 
    town.

      Go to Klaus' House.
    
      *Story*
       In the basement, he will tell you that he now knows where the relic was 
    and it is inside the Lake Ruins.  Also he will tell you that the Cube is 
    somewhat like a key needed to enter the ruins in the lake.  Mint immediately 
    says that since they have the key and know where the relic is, why don't they 
    go now.  But sadly, Klaus says that he doesn't know how to use it so you 
    cannot open the ruins.  He will then tell you that he knows someone that may 
    know how to use the Cube so maybe you should ask Mel a magician and is living 
    at her Atelier, but he doesn't want to go there so it is up to you to go 
    there because of some reason.

    give it to him, he will give you a discount from 30,000 G to 5,000 G for each

    There, go down the circular stairs and examine the body of the Skull Beast 
    and you will get a new Magic Effect [Power]*.  After that, leave the 
    Underground Ruins.  You can leave using the Go Home Plant at the place where 
    you fought the Skull Beast.

      In this place is Mel's Atelier (duh!).  Go walk and in the near half you 
    will be in a ULTRA-WEIRD place [what an UGLY place].  Go step on (s) the

        |=|
    
      Go knock at the door (where else are you supposed to knock, the roof? 
    HELLOOOOOO!) of Mel's Atelier.
    
      *Story*
       Mint will notice that the place was very unusual.  She also now knew why 
    Klaus did not want to go to this place.  She knocks at the door and she 
    notices a stupid sound after that, a dwarf-like creature appears and tells 
    you that Mel is not home and you should play the games while waiting.
      *Story*
    
      [Ok, I don't want to play, can I just stand outside and wait for an hour or 
    something. [No you can't, you have to play the DAMN game] ;_;].
    
      Go save first because you *may* reset and bash your CD because of this 
    ultra-annoying mini-games [especially the Big Swings and Giant Balls].
    
      Go play the easiest first, Blow Trumpet.  Talk to the Poppul Purrels 
    outside until you find the one that asks you to play Blow Trumpet.
    
      [Sorry no maps for the mini-games.  I was so annoyed that I can't do it.]
    
      The games here are timed, and if you hurry, you can get more time at the 
    bonus game.  In the bonus game, if you reached or gone above the high score 
    which is 500 points, you can get a Silver Coin, but if not, you can get a 
    Bronze Coin.
      
      Here, wait for the waves or hurry up to avoid it.  The enemy here called 
    the cockadoo is annoying.  Go blast it with anything you have, just kill the 
    damn thing.  On the seesaw, it may seem like impossible to reach, but it is 
    possible.  Another seesaw is like something I do not know what to call it 
    [anybody knows?], first jump at the left side of it, then at the right side, 
    then again at the left side, and again at the right side and do the following 
    until you are confident enough to jump to the other side.  A little walk 
    after that and you will be at the bonus game.  In the bonus game, you have to 
    step on the trumpets to keep the cockadoo away.  If you blast many cockadoos 
    at a time, you can get more points.  If the cockadoo lands on your head you 
    lose.
    
      After this, go save and go to the Big Swings.
    
      Here, be careful in jumping because the enemies here, called the Imp has an 
    attack that throws stars at you, try to be patient enough so that you don't 
    get hit by it.  Also, careful in the swings too.  It is very easy to slip by 
    a few centimeters and you will fall.  At the bonus game, you have to get the 
    balls to earn points.  Do not get the black balls.  If you get balls of the 
    same color in consecutive order, you can get bonus points.
    
      After that, save and now is the time that you go to the hardest one (for 
    me), the Giant Balls.
    
      Careful in jumping again because of the Imps.  In jumping from a Giant 
    Ball, make sure you don't jump late because you will fall off.  There are 
    also cubes near the end where you can step on.  It will fall so jump to the 
    next place as soon as possible.  The bonus game here requires you to beat up 
    the fungies.  Strategy, avoid fungi build up, go all out, whack 'em all.
    
      After this, the cockadoo save point will be gone.  If you try to knock 
    again at the door.
    
      *Story*
       Mel arrives and Mint will notice that she looks like a frea ... looks 
    different, but Mel knows that Mint was trying to say that she was a freak.  
    Mint will be invited into the house and Mint will ask her about the Cube.  
    Mel will discourage Mint into getting the [relic] because it is very 
    dangerous and Mint is a low class magician.  She says that many people tried 
    to get the [relic] but they died.  She tells Mint that she is not just 
    searching for an ordinary [relic] but she is searching for Valen's [Relic], 
    Valen is the most powerful Aeon.  But since Mint is very determined, Mel will 
    help you if you find the missing Poppul Purrel.  There was supposed to be 4 
    of them but she asked one to go shop in town but it did not come home ever 
    since.  If you help her, she will help you.
      *Story*
    
      Now go back to town [what a relief!].

      Before going to your room at the inn and sleeping, go to the Grasslands

      *Story*
       Here, Rod will tell Mint something about his past.  He will tell Mint the 
    reason why he is, both swordsman and weapon smith.  He then tells Mint about 
    his father, Pleskin being the greatest swordsman in the world.  Rod wanted to 
    challenge his father for the title but he did not have the chance to do so 
    because his father died already.  So now, he seeks to become, just like his 
    father, to be written down in history and excel as being the greatest 
    swordsman and weapon smith.

    and in there
    
      *Story*
       Mel and the Poppul Purrel that Mint helped will thank her and Mint will 
    inquire about the cube.  Mel said that all you need to know is in the report 
    so she hands Mint Mel's Report and the Cube.
    
       After handing those to Mint, Mel will tell her interesting stuff.  Mel 
    will say that the East Heaven Kingdom [this is where Mint came from], is a 
    kingdom which the citizens are excellent magicians.  Also, the eldest 
    princess ran away and rumor was nobody misses her [;_;] and that was because 
    she was violent, indulged in luxury and a pain in the neck.  Mint understood 
    that Mel was saying those things to her because she knows that Mel is 
    pointing her out.  So Mint tells her story of world conquest to Mel.

    to talk about it so she would not tell Mint.  Elena will say that she was 
    just accompanying Rue to Mel's Atelier and would join you in leaving.  Mint 
    wanted to squeeze the secret from Elena but Elena would see something moving 
    somewhere, it is Duke, in a star costume.  Duke will tell Mint that he came

       Mint will give Klaus the report and the cube.  Klaus says that the Cube 
    can be opened so they opened it and something came out of it, something which 
    is not human but a mechanical doll.  It was written on the report that Grand 
    Master Magician Elroy created the doll and the doll's name is Prima Doll and 
    it is the one that can break the seal to Valen's Relic.  But since Prima Doll 
    is still incomplete, Mint can't break the seal now.  Mint needs to get the 
    parts for Prima Doll which is kept in the Ateliers of the apprentices of 
    Elroy.  A pair of gauntlets, a pair of sollerets are kept in the Ghost Temple 
    while the Earrings is at the Atelier in Gamul Forest and the final item, the 
    Amulet can be created from a Phantomite.  Rue will say that he will go to the 
    Ghost Temple and get the 2 pairs of items while Mint will go to the Gamul 
    Forest to get the earrings.  Mint would not agree because she wanted to keep 
    the [Relic] just for herself but Rue will say that he only need it once and 
    he will leave it up to Mint and Klaus what to do about it later.

       Mira will tell you that it would take 3 days on foot to get to the Gamul 
    Forest, so you should ask Rod for a boat and ask him to take you there 
    because Rod claims that he owns the fastest boat in the world.
      *Story*
    
      Go to the Grasslands area and talk to Rod.

       For me, I have not fought him recently so he sucks.  I just whacked away 
    at him and he lost.  
    
       Also, according to PyRo MaNiA you can also lose at this battle and he will 
    demand 100 G from you in order for both of them to fight again.  If you lost 
    again, Mira will arrive.

       (If you win)
       Rod will agree to take you to Gamul Forest but tells Mint that do not ever 
    call his baby a boat, it is called Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega.  Mint calls 
    his baby Pinto.  Rod will get mad at Mint but he will still take you there.
    
       (If you lost twice [according to PyRo MaNiA)
       Mira will arrive and asks Rod about why he is giving Mint a hard time.  
    After some small talk, she will leave and Rod will say something that he 
    couldn't stand up to Mira about an argument or something.
    
       (After those stuff)
       Mira will give Mint and Rod their lunch and now at the boat ride, Rod will 
    tell something to Mint but Mint does not respond because she was eating hers 
    and Rod's meatballs and leaves the pumpkin behind.
    
       After they arrive at the Gamul Forest, Mint will ask Rod to wait for her.

    it tries to grab you.  Just try to kick Belle until the floor rise and jump 
    up the risen floor and from there, kick Belle (about 5 kick attacks).
    
      Since Belle is down, Mint will take 'steal' something from Belle, [Green 
    Magic].  Now that you have the [Green Magic], which has a wind element, use 
    it (Green - Wave)  on the wind device (w) until it turns fast and a lift will 
    come down.

     "Now blast those two practising Gamulians to kingdom come so more will pop out  
     of their house. If you go to the point I marked with" {$} "in the above plan 
     (perhaps a little bit on the right of it...) and use the Fire Heart, all 
     enemies that pop out of the hut will be automagically roasted, and you do not 
     have to move to collect the powerups. In fact, if you hit the right spot, you  
     can glue down the appropriate Magic-button and go for a little coffee or 
     whatever... Provided you collect enough brown goodies. Thats the crucial 
     point...
    
     But now another nice effect kicks in: The 'Hyper' option seems to use
     up at least 100 MP at first glance. But this is wrong. If you use it
     about 20 times, it will eventually drop the limit to 80 MP. This is
     what you get for six brown goodies dropped by the Gamulians (~15 MP
     each), and while you are protected by the flames those six brown
     powerups show up almost everytime. if not, just hit those hobos twice
     to refill the missing MP's...
    
     It's no biggie, but it is easy and fast... And it does not require
     full attention... ^_^"

    and ride the cart but the rail is destroyed so they will fall.
    
       After falling, Belle was determined to finish the fight but Mint's leg was 
    hurt during the fall.  Belle will then cast magic onto Mint and Mint was 
    afraid because she thought that it was an attack, but Belle cured Mint's leg.  
    Belle would say to her that she cured her because she doesn't want to hear 
    Mint crying.  They will both agree to leave the place together but the Cloud 
    Whale arrives and devours Belle.  Mint remembered something about the 
    earrings that are hidden inside the guardian's body who appears to be the 
    whale.  Mint decided to get the earrings by fighting the whale.

       Challenge:  Medium
    
        To damage it, you can use White - Vulcan when its mouth opens (the blue-
    green part) but in this way, it will take you in its mouth and spit you out 
    (but it is all right as he only regains some HP).  If it creates a tidal wave, 
    jump to avoid the water rushing from the source, to the raft, and to where you 
    are standing.  You can also attack the red part when it is charging for a water-
    spray attack.
    
      *Story*
       Mint will get the earrings and Belle will be thrown out from the whale's 
    mouth but she has fainted so Mint will leave her alone and most likely 
    proceed to where Rod is waiting.
    
       A cut scene, at the hotel, you will see Belle arrive and she smells.  Duke 
    will say that he was beaten by Rue and likewise Belle was beaten by Mint.  
    After that, Solin knocks at the door and asks them when they are going to pay 
    their bill.  Since they do not have any money (but they would not say it to 
    Solin) so they will say that they will pay it later.  Now, they will talk to 
    each other and are now determined to get the [relic] and gain money.
    
       In the grasslands, after arriving to town from the trip, Rod will ask Mint 
    to thank Mira for the food.

    so he left a surprise to Mint in Klaus House, and he will leave.  Mint 
    thought that the surprise is that something horrible happened to Klaus or his 
    family so she rushes to the house and was greeted by Elena.  Mint will then 
    get the surprise because two pumpkins would fall onto her head.
      *Story*
    
      *Interesting stuff to check out*
       You can push the pumpkins.  Move 'em around the house.
    
      Go down the basement.
    
      *Story*
       Mint will give the earrings to Prima Doll and you will see Rue give the 
    gauntlets and sollerets.  So now you will have to get the Phantomite.  Klaus 
    will say that the Phantomite is a mineral and somebody named Wylaf who lives 
    in the Raging Mountain is a collector of rare gems and minerals, because of 
    this Mint decides that she is the one who wants to go to the Raging 
    Mountains.  Klaus will tell you to be careful because Wylaf is a powerful but 
    stubborn dragon.  History recorded that Wylaf defeated a whole army that 
    attacked him led by King Dorian.  Wylaf was said to have the power to summon 
    the flames from the ground.

      First go straight and fight the enemies if you like (Ootangs and Fire

    (you may like to step on (f) but you better hurry or you will fall with it).  
    At the next place, you will see it is blocked by a boulder (b) that you can't 
    destroy so just jump down and fight the Bubba there and jump to get the Magic 
    Color [Black Magic] (X) and use the ability Black - Bomb to destroy the 
    boulder at your right.  Now go back again to the top and hop the pits (p) and 
    go destroy the boulder (b) near the exit.  Go to the exit (duh!).

      Here just go up first and destroy the boulder (Black - Bomb) and get 3 
    Silver Coins (1) and then go back, now down and again destroy the boulder and 
    in the (F area) just avoid the steam coming out of the ground because they 
    would damage you.  Just go to the exit.

      You have to jump along the floating platforms (they move Up and Down).  
    First go smash the boulder and Restore your HP (r), and then go back and just 
    finish the place by going to the right exit.

      In this area, the winds sometimes blow, so avoid jumping too much.  You can 
    use the obstacles (o) as cover when the wind blows so you can attack the 
    enemies that are blocking your way and prevent you from blowing away.  Jump 
    the pits only when the wind is not blowing or else you will fall or fall back  
    (the Bubba is a major blockage on the way so take it out, even if you fall, 
    it does not matter).  Just head for the exit.

    *EXTRA PLACE FOR BOSS BATTLE*
    
      Here you will see Belle and Duke.
    
      *Story*
       The two are waiting for Mint and they demand from Mint the stuff.  Mint 
    will annoy Belle by calling her an old bag so she will call Hexagon and you 
    will fight her and Duke together.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Belle with Hexagon and Duke*
       Challenge:  Medium
    
       First go beat the hell out of Duke, he is so annoying, constantly doing 
    uppercuts to you.  After he is done, concentrate on Belle and Hexagon.  You 
    need to jump kick her.  Try doing that at Hexagon's back or after Hexagon has 
    finished doing his grab attack (move / jump away).  After beating Belle out, 
    she will jump down and fight you face to face.  Same strategy as before, just 
    attack her normally but avoid her while she has the swirling white stuff 
    around her until she throws it.  Also jump if she casts the fire attack.
    
      They will leave after the battle and you will automatically go to the next 
    area.

      Sorry for the map, it is not very accurate, but it is good enough.  First 
    go straight for the (r), Restore HP then after that, go up and jump the 
    ledges where the Fire Blobs are to get the Legendary Shield (1).  After that, 
    go back then go up and move left, hop across the pit and go up again, then 
    right and there will be a Fire Blob, then go up, then left and you will see 3 
    Pollywogs and go up to the exit.

      *Story*
       Mint will call for Wylaf.  The dragon Wylaf will then arrive and say 
    something about a human dares to disturb him.  Mint will ask for a Phantomite 
    but he doesn't like to give it because he will read Mint's mind and knows 
    that you just want the relic for world conquest.  He will also sense a great 
    spirit because Mint will say that if anyone tries to destroy the world she 
    will beat them up because she is going to rule it, so he might reconsider. 
    But he will say that spirit alone is not enough to tame the Aeon's powers so 
    he will test Mint if she has power.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Wylaf*
       Challenge:  Medium
    
       To damage him, you can use Blue - Icicle WHILE he swoops down at you (it 
    will eventually hit him and would cause him to go back up).  If you are low 
    on MP, try attacking WHILE he again swoops down.  He has other attacks that 
    are quite easy to avoid.  Like if he breathes fire to the ground, just avoid 
    the ground and a + radius.  The fire will remain there so avoid that too.  If 
    he rapidly swoops down at you, just try to jump to other directions to avoid.  
    When his HP is below half, he will withdraw from the battle.
    
    NOTE THAT YOU SHOULD NOT ATTACK ONCE HE SAYS THE FIGHT IS OVER OR ELSE 
    PREPARE TO GET ROASTED, errr ... I mean meet the Game Over Screen.  Thanks to 
    KTeoh for giving this to me, check the Cool Stuff section to see more about 
    this.
    
      *Story*
       He will say that he has underestimated Mint.  Mint then says that Wylaf 
    needs to rest, he will treat it as mockery.  But as he promised, he will give 
    Mint the Phantomite and he will trust Mint that she would not bring end to 
    the world.  Mint will ask Wylaf if he would like to work for her when she 
    rules the world but Wylaf will say that he will think about it.
    
       *Cut Scene*
        You will see Rue talking with Belle and Duke.  They will say something 
    that Rue is carrying such a heavy load from his past so they decided to help 
    him out just for the moral duty.  Rue will say that he does not need money 
    and only needs to use the [Relic] once and after that Belle and Duke can keep 
    it.  After that, they will agree to work together.
       *Cut Scene*
    
       Mint will be automatically back in town will be called by Blood, as 
    always, together with Smokey (or the other way around).  They will challenge 
    Mint for a battle at the forest.  They will leave a note telling you that.
      *Story*
    
      You will be automatically back to town.

      Go to the area where you always find Blood and Smokey.
    
      *Story*
       They will say that they have a new boss, he is the one with the red hair, 
    he will say that his name is the 'Trap Master'. Mint will call him porcupine 
    head and he will get mad and say that Mint is on his trap.  Mint will then be 
    on Trap Masters own battlefield because he usually destroys the outside place 
    when he fights.  Both of them (Mint and Trap Master) will then engage the 
    battle.

      *Boss Battle - Trap Master*
       Challenge:  Easy
    
       All you have to do here is to stand on the center and cast White - Vulcan.  
    He will just die.  Just avoid jumping too much and stepping on blinking 
    platforms.  You can die in this battle if you want.
    
      *Story*
       After that Trap Master will say that Mint was nothing and he can easily 
    kill her in a few seconds but he cannot kill Mint yet.  The two, Blood and 
    Smokey will fight Mint because Trap Master will go away.

        You can either use White - Vulcan or just attack them till they lose.  It 
    doesn't matter.

       Again, they will be beaten and they will run away.  You will feel somewhat 
    good about it.

    is [it will require many tries for you to get it because it is so hard], you 
    can get Magic Effect [Circle] from it.  You need this thing even if it is so 
    frustrating to get.
    
      After getting that, go to the place outside Cadmon's Atelier and go back to

      Go to Klaus' house.
    
      *Story*
       Mint will give him the Phantomite and he will be amazed that Mint got it.  
    He will take it and will say that he will make the Amulet for Prima right 
    away.  Mint will then tell Klaus that only the Tiara is left and you are 
    going to get it from Belle and Duke but Rue will arrive telling Mint and 
    Klaus that there is no need for that because he already got it from Belle and 
    Duke at the hotel.  Mint could not believe that he just got the Tiara easily 
    so she will ask Rue how he got it but for some reason, Rue would not tell it.
    
       They will then put the Tiara on Prima Doll but ask what the Tiara is for.  
    Prima will say that the Tiara is used for decision making and certain 
    abilities, both mental and physical are on the Tiara which exceeds the 
    current intelligence which is only a mere backup.  After a couple of small 
    talk, Mint will get mad at Prima Doll and shows him the finger.  Also, after 
    that, Prima Doll will bug Klaus to finish the amulet as soon as possible but 
    he will suddenly stop.  All of them will wonder what happened so they have to 
    talk to Mel to find out.

      After the talk, go check out the town and if I am not mistaken you can get

      Talk to Mel.
    
      *Story*
       By the time Mint arrives, Mel will ask her if she has given up the search 
    for Valen's [Relic] and she will say no.  It is because that Mint's father 
    said that she should never quit once she started something.  After that, Mint 
    will say that there is something wrong with Prima Doll.  Mel will say to her 
    that it must be because of Prima Doll's energy being radiated after its long 
    rest in the cube.  She will tell Mint that there might be a way to restore 
    Prima Doll's energy and that you need Gorotan's power, some guy that can 
    control the power of lightning.  She also will say that she is not sure 
    whether it will work but it is worth the try and tells Mint to be careful 
    because Gorotan does not like visitors.  Mel asks Mint to just find out where 
    Gorotan leaves from one of her assistants.
      *Story*
    
      Go outside the Atelier and talk to the Poppul Purrel that you helped 
    earlier.  I think it is the one near the back.
    
      *Story*
       He will say to Mint that he knows where Gorotan is and asks Mint if she 
    wants to play with Gorotan now, say Yes and Mint will be in a room with a 
    flying guy thing.
      *Story*
    
      Go talk to the flying thing and it will transform into a big cat.

        Avoid the star thingies that are around him and it will just go farther

    and cast Red - Napalm or just attack him to conserve MP, them immediately 
    jump/run aside to avoid the lightning bolt.
    
      After the battle, you will get from him [Yellow Magic].  Go back to town.

       Mint will be blasting bolts to Prima Doll and Prima Doll will be charged 
    up.  He should be ok now and he only needs to get the Amulet in order to 
    break the seal.

      I am not sure but iamnothing went to the tavern after this so head for the 
    tavern and maybe something will happen.
    
      After going there, go leave the town and head for the Lakeside.

      In the lakeside, you will see Rue together with Elena.
    
      *Story*
       Elena will say something about after both Rue and Mint gets the [Relic] 
    she will become lonely because they will leave town.  Elena will then ask 
    Mint what is she going to do after getting the [Relic] and Mint will reply to 
    her and say that she plans to take over the world with it.  Now, Mint will 
    ask Rue what is he going to do after the it is over, and you will guess that 
    it is either Rue will stay in Carona or go back to his home town.  If you 
    choose the option to 'Go back to his homeland', Rue will say that there would 
    be someone waiting for him back home.  Mint will inquire who that person is 
    but Rue will say that it was someone that is 'like' a sister to him, but 
    still she is not yet at home.  If you say that he will 'Stay in Carona' Mint 
    will tease Rue.  After that, Rue will ask Elena how long is it going to take 
    to finish the Amulet but Elena will say that it will be finished soon.  Rue 
    will leave, together with Elena to go back to town.
      *Story*
    
      Now that you are alone, go head back to town too.

       Klaus will tell Mint that the Amulet is near completion and he will ask 
    Mint to take Prima Doll to the Lakeside.  Mint does not want to but Prima 
    Doll will bug her so she will take Prima Doll to the Lakeside.
      *Story*
    
      Go leave the house and talk to Marcum, the fat guy that buys stuff from you 
    and he will give you 50 G.  After that, I think there is a Bronze Coin 
    somewhere (but since item appearance, I think is at random so maybe it is not 
    there).
    
      Interesting Stuff to Check Out (thanks to PyRo MaNiA for this one)
       Prima Doll is following you right, why don't you go to the Grasslands and 
    talk to Johnny Wolf and he will follow Prima Doll, then talk to Rod, he will 
    join the 'train' party.  Now, Mint will be followed by Prima Doll, which is 
    followed by Johnny Wolf, and Rod will be behind Johnny Wolf.  You gotta see 
    this, it looks silly. (though I haven't seen it yet) 
    
      Also, according to grady, at the Grasslands there is a coin (see map below)

      *Story*
       Prima Doll will feel something good and Mint will tell him that it is 
    because it is his first time to experience the sunlight [or something like 
    that].  He will challenge Mint for a race to the shore.  Mint is confident 
    that she is not going to lose from a doll.
      *Story*
      
      A good way to win the race is to block his way and run while he is at your 
    back.  You can also lose the race.
    
      *Story*
       Doesn't matter if you win or lose, it would be just small talk.  After 
    that, Prima Doll will say something about him, that he is just a tool that 
    would be used to unseal the [Relic].  Mint will comfort him by saying that he 
    is not a tool because for one reason he is crying and that he has feelings 
    [^_^].  Prima Doll will realize this and will thank Mint for the words.  
    After that, he will say that he wants to go back to town.

       Here, Klaus will say that he has finished doing the Amulet.  Prima Doll 
    will try it on and he will feel great wearing it.  Now they are ready to 
    break the seal so Klaus gets up and tries to walk but his ankle still hurts.  
    Elena will say that her father still needs to rest but Klaus will say that he 
    can't stop now because his dream is only a few steps away.  Mint will say 
    that he should not worry because they have to prepare a boat first in order 
    to get to the ruins.  Mint will say in her mind that now, she can keep the 
    [Relic] for herself.

      In town, go to the Grasslands and talk to Rod.
    
      *Story*
       Mint will ask Rod to get his Pinto ready because she needs it.  Rod will 
    ged mad and tells you why do you always call Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega, 
    Pinto, and if Mint is stupid or anything and he will ask you what is the name 
    of his baby.  Just choose Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega (though I don't know 
    what will happen if you choose the other options).  If you chose that, he 
    will tell Mint that she has a brain after all but then again, Mint will call 
    it Pinto.  So now, Rod does not want to give you a ride but Mint will hear 
    Rod's stomach grumble.  Mint will say to him that if that is his stomach and 
    Rod will say yes and that is because he does not get challenges lately and he 
    can't even afford a meal.  Mint will then say that if Rod remembers what Mira 
    cooked for them when they first go to the Gamul Forest and tells him that she 
    can ask Mira again to cook that for them.  Rod will get delighted and say 
    that he will get Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega and you go ask Mira to cook for 
    him.
      *Story*
    
      Go leave the grasslands and go back to Klaus' house.  No need to tell Mira 
    about the food so just go talk to Klaus at the basement and say to him that 
    you will depart for the ruins.
    
      *Story*
       Mint and Prima Doll together with Rod will be going to the Ruins together. 
    Prima Doll asks you if you were going to ride that cool looking boat and Rod 
    will say to him that it is not a boat but Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega.  
    Prima Doll ignores it and still calls it a boat but he will hear from Mint 
    calling it Pinto and begins calling it Pinto too.  There, you will then ride 
    the boat to the Lake Ruins.

      *Story*
       At the Lake Ruins, Prima will go and unlock the seal but Mint keeps 
    disturbing him.  At the second try, Maya will teleport there together with 
    Doll Master and Psycho Master.  Maya will tell you that how could you have 
    forgotten East Heaven's duty that is to protect Valen's [Relic] from being 
    unsealed at all cost.  After hearing this, Doll Master will grab Prima Doll 
    as with Mint is attacked by pumpkins summoned by Maya.  Rue then arrives but 
    Psycho Master would be blocking him but Rod will also arrive and he will 
    punch Psycho Master.  Rod will then take Prima Doll to safety.   Rue will say 
    that he will be coming back (and at this point, he knows that Mint is truly a 
    princess) to save Mint because Mint is pinned on the ground by the pumpkin.  
    Maya will then fortify the Ruins with the help of the Book of Cosmos.

    oblivion.  She will leave and tell Mint that dinner would be served to you, 
    and all the dishes are pumpkins.  So now Mint desperately wants to escape and 
    at that time, the grate in your place will open and a porcupine will come out 
    and transform into Rue and he will say that he has come back to rescue Mint.  
    Mint will get shocked and asks what he could not explain it very well and so 
    he removes his hat and shows you the gem on his forehead and he will tell 
    Mint that he is not human and that he does not know what he is.  He will tell 
    Mint to forget about that now because they both need to escape from there.  
    He will open the lock.

      In the next room, Rue will say something about invisible steps but he can 
    see them and sadly you can't.  All you have to do is to let him guide you and 
    follow where he is stepping.  At the end Mint would get her Magic back.  
    Proceed to the next room.
    
    
      *Story* 
       Here some witch would fire a pumpkin and Rue will ask Mint to duck but 
    Mint will catch it on her face and Mint will tell him that he should not have 
    evaded it because there is a lady at his back [;_;].  He will than ask you to 
    ride the floating thing and he will go into another floating thing because it 
    can only accommodate 1 person.
      *Story*
    
      Here, just avoid the witches shots by jumping.  You will reach the next 
    room.
    
      In the next room
    
      *Story*
       Both of them, Mint and Rue will see Trap Master and Trap Master will say 
    that they are both caught on a trap.  Both Rue and Mint will be falling down 
    the terrace because pumpkins surround them on front and they will fall if 
    they keep going back.  Rue will ask Mint to jump and they will be saved by 
    Belle and Hexagon and they will leave.
    
       *Cut Scene*
        Mode Master will tell Doll Master that Mint escaped the dungeon.  Here a 
    new plot will be visible that Doll Master wants to get the relic and he will 
    tell it to Maya because it is better to get it now than let it fall into the 
    wrong hands.  Maya will stand on her beliefs that the kingdom is there to 
    protect the [Relic] and they should NEVER lay their hands on it.
       *Cut Scene*
     
       You will be in town and Mint wanted to ask a lot of questions to Rue but 
    Rue will say that they should talk about that at the Tavern because Belle and 
    Duke is waiting for him.

      Before you go to the bar, why don't you go talk to Rod first at the 
    grasslands.
    
      *Story*
       Rod will encourage Mint to keep going because it is just her trial phase.  
    He has survived his trial phase already and that was when he wasn't able to 
    create good weapons.  He will say that 'his woman' kept him going.  She was 
    the one that encourages him when he is down and tells him to stop moping and 
    create a new weapon.  He will say that Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega was her 
    only keepsake to him.  Upon hearing this, Mint will think that the one Rod 
    was talking about is dead, but Rod will clarify that she, her name is Lucine 
    and she is not dead but he can't go see her until he marked a name in 
    history.  He will tell then to Mint that she just have to keep on going no 
    matter what and do not give up.
      *Story*
    
      After that, go to the Tavern.
    
      *Story*
       Belle, Duke and Rue, will invite Mint in their table and they are going to 
    talk about something.  Also, Belle and Duke already know that Mint is a 
    princess because Rue told them even if they could not believe it.  Mint will 
    say to them that you have been through hell for the past 2 years.  After 
    that, Rue will then tell his story.  He will say that it was 5 years ago that 
    when he was alone and he was lost, he could have just fallen apart if it 
    wasn't for Claire.  He will say that she is dead now so that is why he needs 
    the [Relic] to revive her.  Duke will say that that story always touches him 
    every time, and also he will tell you that he already know this because Rue 
    have told them this when Rue asked for the Tiara.
      *Story*
    
      Now that most things are clarified, it is time for a good night sleep.  
    Head for the inn and ask Ms. Cartha to go to your room.  You will 
    automatically sleep.

       As Mint goes out, she will be greeted by Psycho Master.  He will tell you 
    that Maya demands to get Prima Doll and of course Mint will refuse and tells 
    Psycho Master that Maya can put the demands up her butt.  After that, Psycho 
    Master will leave and Elena will arrive and tells Mint that while they were 
    in the forest they were attacked by dolls.  So Mint decided to go check the 
    forest out.

       Mint will see that Blood and Smokey are surrounded by puppets.  She

       Blood and Smokey will thank Mint but Mint will say that she did not help

    will run away and Blood will drop an item for Mint.  Mint will pick it up and 
    she can't believe that they gave her an expensive item.

    summons more puppets to that place, after saying that he will leave.  The

    you, he is actually Rue.  You will automatically end up in town.

    house.
    
      *Story*
       Klaus will thank Mint for saving his family.  Prima Doll will say that if 
    he gave up himself to them, it could prevent many bad things.  He will say 
    that it is because of him that bad things happen.  Mint will say to Prima 
    Doll that she is fighting for Prima Doll, and she is not protecting Prima 
    Doll just for anyone but she is fighting because she needs to get the [Relic] 
    to conquer the world.  And because of that, Prima Doll should not dare 
    attempt to give his self up.
    
       After that topic, they will talk about shutting down the doll factories.  
    Rue will say that he will check out the Ghost Temple and you Mint go check

      *Story*
       When Mint arrives there, she will wonder why Maya wants to get the 
    [Relic], and that contradicts what she said earlier at the Lake Ruins.  After 
    that, Maya and Psycho Master will arrive (and Mint will go hide) and Maya 
    will say that she will protect the Underground Ruins personally.  Maya will 
    teleport into the ruins.
      *Story*
    
      Go follow Maya and inside the Underground Ruins, just go forward twice (you 
    don't need to go down the long way).  The wall beside the entrance to the 
    room where Rue used to stand is now gone, and you can go down there, and you 
    will automatically be in the room where you need to get the platforms in 
    order to go to the room above. You will notice that the platforms are not 
    there so you have to get them all again. Also there are skeletons in this 
    place but they just go down and stand up again.  After getting them all go 
    back to that room and step on the platforms, exit at the top exit and drop 
    down the hole and go get the heal point and go to the next room, the room 
    with the blinking platforms.
    
      *Story*
       Maya will be there, trying to jump from platform to platform.  Mint will 
    ask her what is she up to and Maya will say that she has changed and maybe 
    she got your evil nature.  She will bring up the topic that since Mint are in 
    the Underground Ruins and that boy Rue is at the Ghost Temple, then who is 
    protecting the town.  After hearing this, Mint will know that the dolls were 
    just acting as decoys because they are really going to attack the town.  Mint 
    will immediately back to town.
      
       *Cut Scene*
        In town, you will see Doll Master saying that he, in behalf of Princess 
    Maya of East Heaven Kingdom, demands to get Prima Doll.  Nobody answers so he 
    threatens to burn the town and kill all the residents.  After that he will 
    call Psycho Master and Doll Master will order him to destroy the inn and kill 
    all the occupants.  But Duke will stop them and saying that he has a new act 
    but he will be blown away by Trap Masters trap (duh!).  Belle then says that 
    she will take all of them on.
       *Cut Scene*
    
       Mint arrives in town and she kicks Doll Master for an entrance, but Doll 
    Master would evade it and he let Psycho Master take you to Church and there 
    you will fight.  Inside the Church, Psycho Master dares you to attack him on 
    his front side.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Psycho Master*
       Challenge:  Easy - Medium
    
        To defeat him, you have to attack his back.  Never attack his front 
    because he will grab you and deal you damage.  If he throws certain attacks 
    like a round thing that would move from his body to the outer surrounding 
    areas and stuff, you can jump that attack.  If he floating and trying to move 
    closer to you, just run away and move in a circular motion around him.
    
      *Story*
       After the battle, he just said that he just bought enough time and now 
    Mint is free to go.  He will then disappear.
    
       Outside, Trap Master is fighting Belle and when he got bored, he will 
    engage the trap and blow away Belle too just like what happened to Duke.  
    After that, Klaus would be defending Prima Doll.  He will say that he would 
    not give up a member of his family.  Doll Master would be impressed by what 
    he said but will ask him how come he wanted to risk his life for a tool.  And 
    as Klaus said earlier, he wouldn't give up a member of his family and so Doll 
    Master cannot believe this and he will shoot Klaus with energy.
    
       Mint will get out of the church and she will see Prima Doll being taken by 
    Doll Master.  Prima Doll asks Mint to rescue him and beat up the bad guys.  
    Mint will say that she will come, beat up the bad guys and save Prima Doll, 
    and that would be a promise.  Now, all the enemies will leave together with 
    Prima Doll.
    
       Rue will arrive and Mint will say to him that they took Prima Doll.  Rue 
    will regret that he has arrived late and if only he was earlier, the enemies 
    could have not taken Prima Doll.  Mint will say that he will rescue Prima and 
    Klaus will tell you that they might have taken Prima on the tower that 
    appeared in the lake.  Now Mint has to go there.

        Doll Master will demand from Prima Doll to open the seal but Prima Doll 
    does not want to do it.  Doll Master will threaten Prima Doll by saying that 
    he will destroy the town so Prima Doll will do it.  After breaking the seal 
    you will see something that will rise up and form a fortress.  
       *Cut Scene*
    
       Rue will see it together with Mint and he will say that all their efforts 
    are wasted because Valen's [Relic] is there.  Mint will say to Rue that it is 
    not yet over and if he wants to save Claire then they should not give up.

    |    Moving     |                 - Only the ones turning Clockwise
    |    Stuff      |                 - Or one that is moving.
    |               |
    |---------------|
    |               |
    |_______=_______|
    
      You have to jump across the moving stuff.  You can only step on the ones 
    that are moving right to left or vice versa and the ones that are turning 
    clockwise.  If you fall, the place below will be surrounded by force fields 
    and you have to kill all the pumpkins in order to get out.  Kill the witch on 
    the floating platform (p) and go get the 2 Star Stones and step on the 
    Restore HP and leave the place using the top exit.
    
      In the next place, you have to hop on the big round thing in the middle and 
    enemies (Pumpkins) will fall down and you just have to defeat them all until 
    you get to the top.  At the top, from the round thing, go up the stairs and 
    get out of the room.

        \__________/
    
      The room is actually round, but this is ASCII map, that is the best that it 
    can be.  First go get the 3 Gold Coins (they are on the lowest level of the 
    room and move a clockwise in order to see it.  After getting this, go up and 
    exit the place.

      Again, just like the previous room, just go get the 2 Gold coins and if you 
    pass through the door, pumpkins will come out and you have to defeat them in 
    order for the door to open again.  Just exit through the door.

    |----------------|    r.  Restore HP
    |________________|    L.  Legendary Helmet
    
       First go step on (1) but if you fall you can step on the middle (x) to get 
    back up.  After stepping on one, beat up the Wabbits first because they are 
    blocking access to the other platform (2 and 3).  You have to step on (1) 
    then (2) then (3), you can wait for (3) to stop unlike (1 and 2) because at 
    the end of (3)s ride it will not throw you but it would wait for a few 
    seconds.  Go get the Legendary Helmet (L) and step on the Restore HP spot.  
    Go exit the place.
    
      At the next room, you will see Trap Master
    
      *Story*
       Trap Master will say that he got the permission to kill Mint now so he 
    attacks her and puts her into his own battle field.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Trap Master*
       Challenge:  Easy - Medium
    
       Just use White - Vulcan while you are at the middle platform, he will just 
    die and leave you nothing to worry about.  If you wish to a have a flawless 
    battle, if a shadow appears on top of you, get out of there because an spiked 
    ball will fall.  After that, do not step on the blinking platforms because 
    they can deal you damage.
    
      *Story*
       After the battle, Trap Master will ask you to finish him off so Mint does 
    her magic stance but Trap Master will say that that won't do because you have 
    to go near him and beat him up to do it.  Mint knows that this is a trap so 
    she does not want to go near Trap Master.  He will compliment you that you 
    are not so dumb after all and that he will tell Mint that she'll regret it 
    because he will come get Mint in the future.  He will just mope there for a 
    while so Mint will automatically advance to the next room.
    
       In the next room, Maya is there, and Mint will demand that she release 
    Prima Doll.  She will say that Prima Doll is not there but at the Lake Ruins.  
    But you would also want to fight her and she wants to fight you too.  Maya 
    will say to Mint that there is no need to worry because she won't use the 
    Book of Cosmos on this battle and she will use her own powers to fight.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Maya*
       Challenge:  Easy
    
       Just whack her till she dies.  If she summon pumpkins, go whack them all 
    to gain some HP or MP.  But if she turns you into a pumpkin just jump and run 
    around and she won't be able to get you.
    
      *Story*
       After the battle, Maya will get humiliated because she cannot defeat MInt 
    with her own power.  Then suddenly, her body will be blinking and she will 
    turn back into Mode Master.  Mint will ask her why did she turn herself into 
    Maya but she would run and Mint would chase her.  She will stop inside the 
    dungeon and you will see 2 Maya.  They would be pointing at each other that 
    the other one is Maya.  So Mint would decide who the real Maya is and jump 
    kick the imposter.
    
       Go kick the right one because it is truly Maya and it would be funny to do 
    so [^_^] but if you are a bit serious at this point, attack the left one.
    
       After that, Mode Master would reveal that Doll Master used the Kingdom to 
    achieve his goals which is getting Valen's [Relic].  Maya will be so 
    humiliated hearing this because she let someone like Doll become an Imperial 
    Magician.  Mint will say something about Doll Master's sneaky personality and 
    something but Mode Master will tell you that if you have heard what Doll 
    Master has been through, you will understand him.  She was supposedly going 
    to tell you this but Trap Master would interrupt her, and will call her 
    'Kirielle' [so that's her true name].  Trap Master will give Maya back the 
    Book of Cosmos but Maya would ask why is he giving this but Trap Master will 
    say that it does not matter because it is just crap compared to the Dewprism, 
    which is Valen's [Relic] which the Doll Master would be getting. Mode Master 
    will tell Mint and Maya that Prima must have been taken to Valen's Fortress.
    
       Maya will tell Mint that she would come back to Carona but Mint will tell 
    her not to go there because the townspeople may still be mad at her so Mint 
    decided to take her to *the* place [hehehe!], to Mel.
      *Story*
    
      You will be automatically brought to town.

      You may like to go to register at the inn first then leave the inn and go 
    buy the best bonus status stuff in the game from Tonio's shop.
    
      Brave Bracer  -  6,500 G  -  Bonus Strength +24
      Black Belt    -  6,500 G  -  Bonus Defense  +24
    
      After that, you may like to give the Legendary Stuff to Jargen, the 
    bartender at the (duh!) Tavern.  He will offer you the following as dishes.
         _________________________________________________________________
         |  Dish               |  Enemies Required  |  Status Raised     |
         |---------------------------------------------------------------|
         |  Minced Fire Blobs  |  50 Fire Blobs     |  +10 Maximum HP    |
         |  Mushroom Soup      |  60 Fungies        |  +10 Maximum MP    |
         |  Pollywog Souffle   |  50 Pollywogs      |  +2 Base Strength  |
         |  Gudon Liver Soup   |  30 Gudons         |  +2 Base Defense   |
         |---------------------------------------------------------------|
    
      You can only cook 10 times and the Legendary equipment will be overused but 
    if that happens he will give you a Platinum Coin.  I suggest that you should 
    either get the Pollywog Souffle and Gudon Liver Soup because you can get a +2 
    Bonus for each of them.
    
      I think this would be the last times you can fight Rod so you better beat 
    him up pretty bad until you don't feel like it anymore.
    
      Go to Mel's Atelier after that.

     *  Item:  Cannon Orb  *
     ***********************
    
      Go to Mel's house.
    
      *Story*
       Maya will tell Mint something about Dewprism.  She will say that it is a 
    pure essence of the trickles of forces in the universe [or something like 
    that].  The Dewprism was created by Valen by compressing and crystallizing 
    the forces and turned it into a [Relic].  It is the ultimate power of the 
    universe.  After that, Mint will ask if the Doll Master took a big part in 
    her being kicked out of the kingdom and Maya will answer her question with a 
    yes.  Maya will tell Mint that maybe the Doll Master saw Mint as a big threat 
    so he and the kingdom decided to kick you out.
    
      Mel will ask Mint about how is she going to go up the fortress but Mint 
    will reply her with a no.  Mel will give Mint a Cannon Orb and tells her that 
    it is up to her what to do with it.  Maya will ask Mint if she is going to go 
    up the fortress and Mint will say that she is going.
    
      - The screen will turn and you see the flying things pinch Mel's behind and 
    she is going to slap them [;_^].
      *Story*
    
      Note: If Mel didn't give you the Cannon Orb, you will have to play with a 
    Poppul Purrel (the one you found in the forest) in order to get it.  Contributed 
    by MahalLynx (MahalLynx@aol.com)
    
      Go back to town.

      Here, go to the Grasslands and talk to Rod.
    
      *Story*
       Rod will tell Mint that Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega has the ability to 
    fly but it needs to have an additional 5 Cannon Orbs.  He will say something 
    about the Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega needs 5 Cannon Orbs in it's Sorcery 
    driver [or something] to function as a boat and 10 Cannon Orbs for it be able 
    to fly.  Mint will give him one Cannon Orb, the one she got from Mel and will 
    tell him that she will find more of those.

      Go to Klaus house and talk to Klaus
    
      *Story*
       Mint will ask Klaus if he has a thing called a Cannon Orb because she 
    needs it in order to go Valen's Fortress.  He will say that he know something 
    like that and he will give it to you.  Klaus will tell Mint that she is just 
    like Mira when Mira was young.
      *Story*
    
      Now, go to the tavern.
    
      *Story*
       In here, Mint will see Belle and Duke and she will ask them if they know 
    something about the Cannon Orb.  Belle will tell Mint that they have one and 
    they are using it to power up Hexagon, but she will let Mint borrow it for a 
    while.  But Mint needs to promise that she will help Rue once she got the 
    Dewprism [^_^].  Belle and Duke will leave the bar and say to Mint that they 
    will give it to Rod after they take it out so Mint does not have to worry 
    about getting it from them.  Mint will wonder how she is going to help Rue.
      *Story*
    
      After that go to Hobbs' Shop.
    
      *Story*
       Mint will see the Cannon Orb and she will look for the price tag and it 
    will say look like it costs 100 G.  Mint will tell Hobbs that she is going to 
    buy it but Hobbs will tell her that it is not 100 G but 100 M or 100,000,000 
    G.  Mint does not have enough money so she will think of someone who can pay 
    it.  First she will think of Rue but she remembers that he does not have that 
    much money.  Second, she will think about Belle but also remembers that she 
    is already in debt.  After that, Klaus but then she knows that Klaus does not 
    earn that much money.  Now, there would be someone in her mind and Mint will 
    tell Hobbs that someone would be paying it for her but still Hobbs want some 
    form of down payment so he will ask you for 5,000 G.
      *Story*
    
      Go give the 5,000 G that Hobbs is asking you.
    
      *Story*
       Hobbs will hand you the Cannon Orb and go leave the shop.  Mint will then 
    reveal that the one that would be paying for it was Maya.
      *Story*
    
      After that, head for the Grasslands and Mint will automatically [I think] 
    will talk to Belle.
    
      *Story*
       Belle will say that she have been waiting for Duke and Rod to arrive for 
    about an hour already but Rod and Duke will arrive with Rod injured.  They 
    will tell Mint that they have challenged Wylaf because they heard that the 
    dragon had a Cannon Orb.
    
       At the start Wylaf does not want to give the Cannon Orb to Rod because 
    Wylaf wants to test them if he is worthy to get it.  Rod would be fighting 
    Wylaf and Duke will arrive late because he had to fix his act.  They would 
    then fight together against Rod to test their hearts.
    
      "Without heart, we are nothing" - Rod and Duke
    
       They would win and they would be able to get the Cannon Orb which they 
    have brought now but sadly [;_;], Rod cannot pilot Pulsar Inferno Typhoon 
    Omega because he has suffered a lot of damage.  Rod will ask Duke to act like 
    him and fly his 'baby' to Valen's Fortress, Duke will accept this.

      Go to the peak where you fought Wylaf.
    
      *Story*
       Mint will see Rue and he will thank her because she encouraged him when he 
    was about to give up.  Thanks to Mint, he will not give up anymore.  He will 
    then ask Wylaf for Dragon Wings and Wylaf would give it to him and he will 
    turn into a dragon.  Rue will say to Mint before he leaves for the fortress 
    that he is not going to forget Mint.
      
       After that, Wylaf would read Mint's mind and he will know that she wants 
    something like that too, so he will give Mint the Magic Effect [Hyper] but he 
    still needs to test her if she is worthy to have it.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Wylaf*
       Challenge:  Medium - Hard
    
       Same things like the previous battle to take note hear.  Avoid the + 
    effect of his fire breath to the ground.  Begin casting Blue - Icicle or 
    press the attack button continuously before he even drops on the ground so 
    that you can immediately damage him.  Avoid the cyclones that he will be 
    summoning or else it would take you to the sky and deal you damage.  Also if 
    he charges you, avoid it by jumping to another direction.
    
      After the battle
    
      *Story*
       Wylaf will recognize that Mint is worthy to have it so he will give the 
    Magic Effect [Hyper] to her.  He will say that he will be leaving the 
    mountain if Mint has united the world under her rule and he will be serving 
    her.  Mint will leave the place and after that Wylaf will call someone to 
    come out from hiding.
    
       Mel will come out and tells Wylaf that it has been along time and just 
    like the Aeons, they will be gone soon.  Both of them would agree that the 
    world's fate is up to the younger generations now, whether they will destroy 
    or protect it.  Mel will wonder if Mint will be ok but Wylaf will say that 
    they can trust her.
      *Story*
    
      You will automatically end up in town.
    
     ********************
     * 'Town of Carona' *
     ********************
    
      Now that you are here, I would suggest that if you have not yet destroyed 
    the Legendary stuff yet, go beat up Pollywogs and Gudons (remember to get 
    only enough since the Legendary stuff will break after 10 meals) [Don't waste 
    time beating Fire Blobs and Fungies because +10 HP or +10 MP is not worth it] 
    after destroying it, the bartender will give you a Platinum Coin.
    
      After that, if you think you have missed something, go check out the 
    section Side Stuff.  If you have done all of them go to the inn and register 
    and go talk to Belle.
    
      *Story*
       Belle will ask Mint if she wants to go to Valen's Fortress now, choose to 
    depart.
    
       Rod will say that he is counting on Duke to take Pulsar Inferno Typhoon 
    Omega.  Duke will say that he will pilot Pinto.  Rod will get mad because it 
    is not Pinto but Pulsar Inferno Typhoon -- but he can't finish because his 
    injuries hurt.
    
       On it, as Duke begins the ride, Pinto would be running slowly and Mint 
    will assume that
    
     "Hey I know, Belle's big butt is weighing us down." - Mint
    
       Duke will flip a switch but it will stop and after a while, it would be 
    going real fast and at that speed you will fly and arrive to Valen's 
    Fortress.

       "Barfing is always so refreshing." - Mint
    
       After that, Mint will see Prima Doll, which is a little low on energy, 
    because it has just broken the seal.  Prima Doll will tell Mint that he

    a coin and restore HP and it will lead you to the Inner Sanctum.

      *Story*
       Mint will arrive at room (1) and will wonder why the 2 center I don't know 
    what they are called or [IDKWTAC] are lighted.
      *Story*
    
    Rooms 2, 4, 6 & 8 are like a curved rooms that has enemies (Jinns and 
    Hellhounds).  They can be used (attack them) if you want to refill your MP.
    
    __________________________________________________Objective Sheet____________
    Here is what you should do:
    
      Your objective is to light the two [IDKWTAC] on the center.
    
      for example:
              
       I I I I
         \ /
          |
       Light these two and keep the ones beside them unlighted.
    
      A rock will fall and you have to take them to room 1.
    
      Note that you cannot attack / fight, even use magic when you are carrying a 
    rock.
    
      For clarity reasons, you have to do the steps (steps [a] then [b] and so 
    on) but you can do the rooms in any order.  (Thanks to chojin66 for this 
    one).
    __________________________________________________Objective Sheet____________
    
      Room 1: a. Use Blue - Droplets to extinguish the two lighted [IDKWTAC]
                  (which are 2 and 3) 
              b. Then use Fire - Burner on the two of them [meaning you will
                  extinguish them and light them again] (2 and 3).  
              c. A red stone will drop.

      After placing the rocks at room one, you will automatically advance to the 
    next room.
    
      *Story*
       Mint will see Psycho Master and Psycho Master will say that he cannot 
    allow her to go on further and disturb what the Doll Master is doing.  It is 
    because that the Doll Master is taking the Cursed Crossways wherein he will 
    face the fears of your past.  He also cannot allow Mint to go back and Mint 
    has to end the battle there.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Psycho Master*
       Challenge:  Easy - Medium
    
       Do not touch the invisible barrier because it will deal you damage.  Note 
    again that you can only attack him at his back.  When he floats and chases 
    you, run around the room (but avoid the invisible barrier) and around him.  
    When he casts the blue floating things, just get hit by them, it is only 
    cheap damage anyway.  Use Blue - Restore if you want to Recover HP.
    
      *Story*
       Psycho Master will say that even though you have defeated him, you cannot 
    go after the Doll Master because the Cursed Crossways is a difficult test.  
    After that Mint will kick him and she will proceed to the next room and is 
    confident that she can conquer the next test, the Cursed Crossways.

      Here you have to go through all teleporters, beating the enemies in the 
    place you will appear to.  I believe that there is some kind of order here 
    but sadly, I can't remember.  The enemies here are pitiful so you can easily 
    defeat them.  Also if you are low on HP in the degree of:  
                             Ultra low - Fight at 1 or 3
                             Low       - Fight at 3 or 7
                             Medium    - Fight at 6 or 7
      to regain health (by beating up enemies and getting the potions (the red or 
    blue stuff that they leave behind).
    
      After beating all the rooms, the center will have a save point and (A) will 
    become a teleporter which has a Restore HP, save and hop onto it.
    
      *Story*
       In the next room, Mint will see Doll Master who is beating Rue up.  Doll 
    Master is opening the final seal that would lead to the Dewprism.  Doll 
    Master will say that he is impressed that Mint was able to get that far 
    because in the first place, she was just some lousy princess [or something 
    like that] and now it turned out that she is the one that is going to stop 
    him.  Doll Master will ask what Mint's reason is.
    
       "Oh?  Enlighten me.  If you have come here for justice, it would be the 
    joke of the century." - Doll Master
    
       Mint will say that she journeyed that far not for justice but to get hold 
    of the Dewprism and conquer the world.  She will also say that she wants to 
    send Doll Master to hell because she was homeless for the past 2 years 
    because of him.  Doll Master will clarify this and will say to Mint that it 
    was not his fault that Mint was not going to be queen because it was the 
    decision of the High Council, together with the King.  Now, Mint will 
    contradict what she said earlier that she have come for justice and the two 
    are going to fight..
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Doll Master*
       Challenge:  Easy
    
       Just attack him or use White - Arrow.  Don't even think of evading his 
    attacks because they are pitiful.  Since his efforts are pathetic, it could 
    help his pride that he damaged you by a little bit or something.
    
      *Story*
       After the battle, Mint will continually attack Doll Master and Doll Master 
    will utter something about his goal and the relic.  After saying that, he 
    will disappear and leave his mask.  Mint will approach Rue who is still 
    unconscious and tries to wake him up.  He would not respond so Mint decided 
    to go for the relic but Rue will say "Claire" so Mint decided to drag Rue and 
    say that ok, she will revive Claire with HER Dewprism.  She will go to the 
    next room while dragging Rue.
    
       In the next room, Mint will see the Dewprism and she will express her 
    claim but someone will arrive.  Mint will ask who the guy is but he will say 
    that Mint is in his fortress and she doesn't know who he is.  Mint will 
    realize that she is talking to Valen but will wonder that how come he is 
    still alive because all the Aeons are dead.  Valen can read Mint's mind and 
    he will answer the question and that he is only a spirit.  Mint will ask if 
    she can have the Dewprism because Valen cannot use it without a physical body 
    but Valen will take over Rue's body, wherein he will say that a doll's body 
    is good enough for him [so Rue is a doll].  Valen will say something about 
    purifying the world and he will be god but Mint will say that it is her world 
    and that nobody can destroy it.  For that, Valen will summon some creatures 
    and you will be the one to experience his purification.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Valen*
       Challenge:  Medium 
      
       Here, you have to damage Valen which is in Rue's body.  You can use Yellow 
    - Trine or Yellow - Final Flash when Valen is near you.  Regain your HP by 
    using Blue - Restore, and your MP by attacking the guy that Valen will 
    summon.  If he summons the guy, attack the guy until it is dead.  If it is 
    moving around while in a slicing pose, just jump when it is coming your way.  
    If it is jumping around, just jump when it is about to land on the ground.  
    When it is doing something stupid [like standing and doing some pose], attack 
    it because it will restore Valen's health.
    
      *Story*
       After that, there would be struggle within Rue's body and Valen's spirit 
    will be cast out by the spirit of Claire that is residing in Rue's body. 
    Maya will arrive and she is going to attack Valen using the Book of Cosmos.  
    She will say that even though it is very much weaker than the Dewprism, it 
    doesn't matter because Valen cannot use the Dewprism without a physical body.  
    Valen will say that actually he can use it if he decides to become the Light.  
    He will tell something about the power of the Dewprism to turn a light into a 
    new and superior light.  After saying those things, he will enter the 
    Dewprism to become the 'Light'.  Maya will ask Mint for both of them to work 
    together and she will give Mint the power of the Book of Cosmos, which has 
    Magic Effect [Cosmos] in order to fight Valen.
      *Story*
    
      *Boss Battle - Valen*
       Challenge:  Easy - Medium
    
       Here, the only time you can damage him when he is a bit red and that is 
    after storming you with a White - Vulcan like attack.  If you are low on HP, 
    just use Blue - Restore and attack Valen six times when he is on the ground 
    for a full MP (you can also restore MP in the same way).  When he is flying, 
    he will attempt to grab you so just run away from it and just run to some 
    direction when it is going to blast you with the 2 barreled White - Vulcan 
    like attack.  When you are seeing an overhead view, it is preparing for the 
    suck maneuver.  Here, just run down and move left or right so you can avoid 
    the shots and avoid getting sucked in.  Now, when he is hovering, he will 
    storm you with the White - Vulcan like attack.  When that happens, set your 
    magic to Yellow - Final Flash or Yellow - Trine and hold triangle while you 
    are being hit with the White - Vulcan - like attack for an immediate fire.  
    If you use Yellow - Final Flash, two of that would get rid of him.
    
    
        The actual way to thrash Valen:
    
         contributed by Dragoon Gohan (DragoonGohan@aol.com)
    
          - use gold color magic and cosmos. when he is in the sky, and ready to 
    use a vulcan looking move, use the shield. then let go. the powered sheild 
    will hit valen! repeat and rinse. heh heh.

      Congratulations, you have finished Mint's story.  I actually played Mint 
    first and if you want to know my time is 19:43.  [Yeah, yeah, I took a 
    loooooong time to finish the game, but it was really hard to do the maps and 
    writing while reading or playing the game and stuff so sometimes I let go of 
    the controller and write stuff on paper.]
    
      If you have finished Mint's story only:
       - After the credits, you will see something like End of Mint's story.  You 
    will be asked if you want to save the game which is Rue 0:00.  Save your game 
    and you will see Mint's picture has a color now.  After that, you will be 
    asked if you want to: - Play the Rue Episode
                          - Return to the Title Screen
                          - Return to the Save Screen
          do anything you want.
    
      But if you have finished Rue's and Mint's story, proceed to the next 
    section, So you've finished the game.
    
    
    #######################################
    ## ---So You've Finished the Game--- ##
    #######################################
    
      If you have finished the game, both Rue and Mint, after the credits you 
    will be able to see an epilogue about what is going to happen in their lives 
    next now that ... and ... is gone.  The game would leave you something to 
    wonder about in maybe the next sequel or just for rumors or story that you 
    could tell other people because there is another ... for ... to ... which ... 
    and that ... asks ... to ...
    
      You can also choose to save the game and start the game with either Rue and 
    Mint with them having the current status that you have left them with.  They 
    also have the same items when you finished their story but there is a little 
    extra for Mint, she would have all the Magic colors and effects.
    
    Also, the save occupies only 1 space and that it contains 2 characters on 1 
    save space.  There have been rumors floating around that you can fight the 
    final boss together for something but none of them has really been proven.
    
      I think that this save is just there to add some 'thought' that the game 
    having a replay value [just like Chrono Trigger's - New Game Plus Mode] 
    though it is really not necessary because there are no bonus dungeons or 
    quest [As for me and the others think as of now] that you can go to.

      1.  Church - Being run by Doyle, talk to him if you want to pray and give 
    donations.  By giving donations, he will give you coins.  [Better call it the 
    Coin Shop rather than a church].  Coins are used when you are knocked out (O 
    HP) and you want to continue the game at the same spot.

          |----------------------------------|------------------------------|
    
      2.  Hotel - Being run by Leeson, the guy at the counter and Solin, the 
    bellboy or security guard, talk to Leeson and pay 500 G to get a hotel room.  
    Sleeping in a hotel is just like sleeping in the inn but if you sleep in a 
    hotel, you may get a dream that is somewhat related to the side quests (for 
    example after 'World Domination, Baby', if you sleep there, you will dream of 
    a monkey going down the stump of the tree then you need to go there and 
    follow what the monkey did).  
    
                  Also, in the hotel room, sometimes there are items that can be 
    found.  I already found the Dream Stone and a Bronze Coin together with 
    Silver Coin.  I found out that these (through an experience) that these items 
    appear at random (except for the Dream Stone) so check the Hotel if you want 
    to.
    
      3.  Klaus' House - As the name states, this is Klaus' house.  You need to 
    go back here most of the time or all of the time after completing a quest in 
    which you got an item which needs to be interpreted by Klaus.  Many parts of 
    the story takes place in this house, such as talking about something that is 
    part of the storyline.  You can also give the Mysterious Statue to Klaus for 
    a +10 MP [Rue Only].
    
      4.  Item Shop - Being run by Tonio, this is the place to buy the bonus 
    items (bonuses for strength or defense).  You can sell your Monster Coins, 
    Stones and the rare stuff that you found in the game here (DO NOT SELL RARE 
    STUFF ESPECIALLY THE RARE WINE, NEVER EVER EVER SELL THE RARE WINE).
    The bonuses doesn't add up (example if you buy Bronze Bracer which is +4 then 
    buy Silver Bracer +8, your bonus will be +8 and NOT +12).

      5.  Inn - After the first Atelier, you can stay here for free.  Here, you 
    can recover your HP (HP Only).  You can save your game and go to your room 
    too.
    
      A.  Docks - Some coins just come out at the docks at random so be sure to 
    check them when you feel like it.

      6.  Tavern - Being run by the bartender together with the waitress Annette.  
    At the first time, if you talk to Annette many times, she will treat you with 
    Milk or Root beer.  But after that, you have to buy them from the bartender.  
    Also after getting the Brooch at Gamul Forest [Mint Only], you can give it to 
    Annette and she will give you a discount on the drinks.  The drinks here 
    restores MP.  For me, it is not worth it because I whack enemies if I want MP 
    (it costs free and I get to earn money too!).
         _________________________________________________________________
         |  Drink             |  Cost   |  Discounted Cost  |  Restores  |
         |---------------------------------------------------------------|
         |  Milk              |   50 G  |  10 G             |  10% MP    |
         |  Root Beer         |  120 G  |  30 G             |  25% MP    |
         |  Tropical Delight  |  220 G  |  50 G             |  50% MP    |
         |---------------------------------------------------------------|
    
                   Also, here, if you give the 3 Legendary Stuff, the Legendary 
    Sword, also known as the Kitchen Knife, the Legendary Shield or a Frying Pan, 
    and the Legendary Helmet or a pot to the bartender, he can create dishes that 
    will increase your parameters (just like buying from Hobbs' Shop).  After 
    cooking a number of dishes he will say that he has overused his items and it 
    will break (after cooking 10 times) but he will give you a Platinum Coin.

      7.  Hobbs' Shop - Shop owned by Hobbs, you can upgrade your base status 
    here.  At first it is expensive (30,000 G each) but when you have the Rare 
    Wine (found in the Underground Ruins), you can give it to him and he will 
    give you a discount (now, 5,000 G).  (SO DO NOT SELL THE RARE WINE FOR HOW 
    MANY 1000 - 5000 G BECAUSE IT IS NOT, AND DEFINITELY NOT WORTH IT.)

    ||____|         |
    ||_PO_|         |       -  this is where you will be fighting Rod
    |               |       -  Pulsar Inferno Typhoon Omega or Pinto (by Mint)
    |               |        
    |+++++++++++++++|      
    |               |
    |_______________|
    
      This is the place where in you can fight Rod for 100 G and if you win he 
    will give you 1000 G.  Also this is the place to go to during the nighttime 
    because if you do, you can hear many things about Rod's past [;_;] and he can 
    encourage you to go on with your quest (and to go to sleep [^_^]).
    
      Note that Rod's ability, speed, and status increase every time you fight 
    him.  He also changes his weapons once in a while.
    
      Rods weapons:  (Silver Breeze, Golden Gale, Black Tornado and Hurricane)
    
      Also, if you fight Rod a lot ... and win, he'll give you coins (but after 
    that, you have to give him a break in order for him to develop a new weapon).  
    Thanks to William Chang (garnet_ibanez@hotmail.com) for this one.
    
      Silver Breeze - Beat him 4 times - Gold Coin
      Golden Gale   - Beat him 5 times - Gold Coin
      Black Tornado - Beat him 6 times - Gold Coin [please verify, I made this up]
      Hurricane     - Beat him 6 times - Platinum Coin
    
      After beating Rod enough, the music will change and he will show you his 
    stats.  He'd be very hard to beat though.
    
      D.  The Town's Gate - Most of the time, this is where you have to leave 
    town.

    ## ---Transformation List--- ##
    ###############################
    
      Rue is the character that can transform, and he can transform into 
    monsters.  You can transform by getting monster coins, in which you can only 
    keep 4 at a time.  The different monsters have different abilities (though 
    sometimes a few have the same) that Rue can use if he transforms.
    
      I believe I've gotten them all and here they are:

        * - The following magic uses all your MP but it needs the corresponding 
    MP in order for it to be cast.
    
       ** - This magic has the ability to destroy rocks.
    
      *** - This magic (Gold - Valiant) can be used to Hold a Barrier (Hold 
    Barrier) if you hold the Magic button wherein it would last for a few seconds 
    and the damage you get from it would restore your HP.  It can also be used to 
    attack enemies (Release Fire) if you just press the Magic button.  But you 
    can do both if you hold the Magic button and before the barrier disappears 
    release the Magic button.

    ## ---Cool Stuff--- ##
    ######################
      
    After talking
      After talking to people or talking to the Johnny Wolf (most obvious way to 
    see this), if you walk away, your head will still be turned towards their 
    direction, until you have walked far enough.
    
    Outside the Carona Forest Atelier
      Try running around the perimeter of the place and looking at your shadow.  
    The shadow depends on the lighting of the place.  Pretty cool huh! (But it 
    would only be available at the first time you come there.)
    
    Push the dog
      At certain times, you can push Johnny Wolf.  Take him anywhere.
    
    Taking the dog for the walk
      Sometimes, if you talk to Johnny Wolf, he will follow you.
    
    Pushing pumpkins
      At the Klaus House when the 'trap', the pumpkins fall onto Mint's head, 
    when they are on the ground, you can push them.  Put them anywhere.
    
    Get yourself cooked
      After the first battle with Wylaf (both characters), Wylaf will tell you to 
    withdraw your weapon. The 'withdrawal' involves nothing, just stand there, 
    right? But something will happen if you disobey - that is you attack him 
    (you're still able right after he says 'withdraw'). First attack, he will say 
    something, attack again and prepare to be roasted (heh heh). He will flame 
    you, that is the flame will be aimed towards the screen and things will go 
    black. Your character is dead/cooked. Either use a coin or back to town. (you 
    have to fight Wylaf again either way).
    
    Shake yo body!
      During the Bond with Prima (for Rue) or Together with Prima (for Mint) 
    Chapter, Prima Doll is following you right, why don't you go to the 
    Grasslands and talk to Johnny Wolf and he will follow Prima Doll, then talk 
    to Rod, he will join the 'train' party.  Now, Rue/Mint is followed by Prima 
    Doll, which is followed by Johnny Wolf, and Rod is behind Johnny Wolf.  You 
    gotta see this, it looks silly, the four of them would be running around like 
    crazy at the Grasslands. (though I haven't seen it yet) 
    
    More shadows
      In the final battle (against Valen combined with Dewprism), you can see 
    your shadow and his shadow.
