    =============================================================================
    ------------------------------- [ Cecil ] -----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    
    The Dark Knight of Baron and commander of the powerful air force the Red 
    Wings. Baron, the most powerful nation in the world has suddenly gone evil. 
    Cecil commiting these acts of unjust crimes he wears the evil and fearsome 
    Dark armor. He attacks the town of Mysidia forcing the people to give up the 
    Crystal of Water, and they willingly agree but not before Cecil's men kills a 
    few mages. Although he wields the Dark Sword and wears the Dark Armor he is 
    in constant remorse with his past sins. Taken away from his rank as Commander 
    of the Red Wings he sets his journey forth towards the unknown lands full of 
    deadly monsters and mystical magic of both good and evil.
    
    NOTE: The Dragon Wave is somewhat of a unique attack. Although the hits are 
          considerably weak they do however hit all on opponents. But there is a 
          downside to this, and that's the fact that each time he uses it his HP 
          drops down by about 8-9%.
    
          His Cover command is used to cover allies, although he still covers his 
          allies automatically this just allows Cecil to cover the ally even 
          though his ally's HP is nowhere near the danger zone.
    
          When Cecil's allies HP are low Cecil will automatically cover his ally 
          from constant attack, so it is important that you equip Cecil with the 
          best piece of armor with the highest Physical Attack defense. However 
          you cannot prevent Cecil from Covering his allies and if his allies are 
          in the back row Cecil will take damage like he was in the back row. 
          Also when Cecil's HP are low he cannot cover because he is too weak to 
          take the hits, but don't rely on Cecil to constantly protect your ally 
          because sometimes an opponent might deal a serious blow that can 
          immediately wound Cecil out of battle so make sure you always keep all 
          your characters' HP out of the Danger Zone. Also Cecil cannot Cover the 
          ally if the ally is attacked by Magic.
    
          After Cecil becomes a Paladin he loses the ability to use his 
          DragonWave.
    
          When Cecil does become a Paladin his stats are extremely high from 
          those of a Dark Knight, for example a Level 1 Paladin stat's are about 
          50% higher than those of a level 20 Dark Knight, just to let you know.
    
    
    
    =============================================================================
    --------------------------------- [ Cid ] -----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    The chief engineer of Baron is the master technician behind the designs and
    contructions of the Red Wings' air force. However Cid is always optimistic 
    and did not know that his ships were being used for war. He decides he help
    out the party after he had found out about his ships being used as weapons
    he had especially designed a high class airship hidden from the King of 
    Baron. Later after sacrificing himself in the underworld he is treated by
    the Dwarves and helps out the party with enhancements towards the Falchon.
    
    NOTE: Cid's Peep command allows him to see the enemies' HP or MP and also 
          displays the enemies' weakness if there is one. Also he cannot see 
          bosses' HP and this will not cost Cid any Magic points. Also if you 
          have the spell Peep its pretty much useless unless you are down on MP.
    
    
    =============================================================================
    --------------------------------- [ Edge ] ----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    The prince of Eblan, with an annoying ego he agrees to help the party after
    the party meets him in the underworld after his defeat at the hands of
    Rubicant, the fiend of fire. Also his defense rating is not as high as you
    would like it as a fighter, but he has the ability to equip two swords and
    can use your weapons as throwing objects.
    
    NOTE: His NINJA command allows him to use 6 types of Magic. He has three 
          elemental spells of Water, Fire, and Lightning, but basically its 
          Water2.5, Fire2.5, and Lit2.5 because the damage done is between a 
          level 2 magic attack and a level 3 magic attack. Also his Smoke command 
          is used to run from battles except of course boss battles. At first it 
          might not seem useful because you can easily run away from enemies, but 
          enemies like EVIL MASK, Behemoth, or Red Dragons you cannot run away 
          from except with the use of Smoke. His Image magic is more of an effect 
          magic, he is the only one in the game who can cast it and it will allow 
          him to avoid attacks throughout the battle, making this essential for 
          boss fights. However it will not protect him against magic attacks as 
          you can expect.
    
          His SNEAK command allows him to steal items from opponents, but he will 
          rarely be successful at stealing and sometimes if he misses he will 
          lose very little HP like about 1-5 HP which should not bother you.
    
          His THROW command allows him to throw your weapons at him except for 
          Rods, Staffs, Bows, Arrows, and Whips. So it might be a good idea not 
          to sell some of your more powerful weapons and they should be saved 
          when your fight against hard bosses, and also most of the weapons he 
          throw causes critical hits!
    
    
    =============================================================================
    ------------------------------- [ Edward ] ----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    The Bard of Damcyan is a complete coward. He cares deeply for Anna as he runs 
    off with Anna towards the castle of Damcyan but however their luck runs out 
    as the Red Wings of Baron attack and demolish the castle of Damcyan and Anna 
    as well is fatally injured. After Anna's death Edward joins and helps Cecil 
    find the Sandruby to help cure Rosa's high fever.
    
    NOTE: When you use the Sing command the special added effect of the Harp 
          Edward is equipped with will try and negatively effect his opponent.   
          Like using negative status effects like Confuse or Sleep. 
    
          When Edward's HP is low he will automatically Hide because like the 
          coward that he is when he is near fatal he will run and hide. But you 
          can still command him but the only command he can use is Show, he will 
          appear in battle however but then quickly run away. Also he will still 
          recieve expierience points even though he did not participate in 
          battle, pretty cheap huh!
    
          Edward's Heal command is not really all that great. At first I thought 
          he can just do it anytime he wants but it will cost you one of your 
          Keal Potions(Cure in U.S.), but he is the only one who can spread 
          potions.
    
          The command SING can only be used by Edward, Edward will sing out a    
          random tune that will have a status effect on the opponent, either     
          being CHARM, SLEEP, MUTE, or CURSE. However it will take a few tries   
          for Edward to be successful, and this also is not an attack and will  
          not damage opponents. The type of Harp you have will determine what
          comes out as the status effect.
    
    =============================================================================
    -------------------------------- [ FySoYa ] ---------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    The Lunarian of the moon possesses powerful magic that can send chills down
    anyone's spine. He will agree to help Cecil when they meet him on the moon
    and he will break Golbez(Golbeze in Japan) out of the mysterious mind 
    control. He is kind hearted and is a dependable character that you can rely
    on.
    
    NOTE: FuSoya knows every WHITE and BLACK magic in the book when you aquire 
          him.
    
    
    =============================================================================
    -------------------------------- [ Kain ] -----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    The Commander of the Dragoon Knights of Baron is a loyal friend of Cecil.
    While he trains daily to perfect his skills as a Dragoon he still seeks to be 
    one day a true Dragoon Knight. With his kind heart he aids Cecil in his 
    journey to the Town of Mist while losing his Command of the Dragoon Knights. 
    He is constantly under the power of Golbez as he cannot break free of 
    Golbez's constant curse and sometimes has a unknown love for Rosa.
    
    NOTE: Kain's Jump attack is probably the single most strongest physical 
          attack in the game. Although he cannot equip a Sword he can do serious 
          damage with a Spear. If he is equipped with a Spear he does double the 
          damage of his Fight command.
    
          When Kain jumps it takes awhile for him to attack his target and will 
          consume about 1.5 turns as it would normally take to attack regularly. 
          So if your party's HP is low and your fighting against a powerful boss 
          and you need to kill him quick before he kills your party then Jumping 
          is not always the best option.
    
    
    =============================================================================
    -------------------------------- [ Palom ] ----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    Being an apprentice he only knows a few spells of Black Magic. He has a 
    boastful mouth and is extremely rude. Instructions from the Elder in Mysidia 
    his job is to spy on Cecil to see if he can live up to his words and if he 
    was to become evil then it was to be his job to destroy Cecil. Although the 
    magic he has are quite elementary they should help Cecil early on.
    
    NOTE: The Twin attack can only be done by both Palom and Porom. If one of 
          them is critically wounded(dead) then the Magic attack will not work. 
          The Magic attack is unpredictable but there are only two spells they 
          can cast. 
          Comet: 20 MP Each
                 Hundreds of Stars come pouring in on opponents doing critical 
                 damage. This attack hits all opponents and it cannot be 
                 reflected. Each single hit is stronger than that of Flare and
                 also there is a 1-in-4 chance of this being cast.
          Flare: 10 MP Each
                 A burst of Nuclear Energy is exploded towards an opponent doing
                 excellent damage. This attack can be reflected however and the
                 single hit is less than a single hit of Comet.
    
          The Boast command is used to raise his magic Power, but this only works 
          during battle. However it raises his magic power by very little and 
          will need to be used serveral times before you see any significant 
          results.
    
    =============================================================================
    -------------------------------- [ Porom ] ----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    Also being an apprentice she only knows a few spells of White Magic. Just 
    like Palom she was intructed by the Elder to spy on Cecil and if Cecil was to 
    become evil she was ordered to destroy Cecil because of his past sins. She is 
    very polite and often has to remind her brother to behave and although she 
    only knows elemental White Magic she can aid her party by using healing and 
    curing spells that should help Cecil early on.
    
    NOTE: The Twin attack can only be done by both Palom and Porom. If one of 
          them is critically wounded(dead) then the Magic attack will not work. 
          The Magic attack is unpredictable but there are only two spells they 
          can cast. 
          Comet: 20 MP Each
                 Hundreds of Stars come pouring in on opponents doing critical 
                 damage. This attack hits all opponents and it cannot be 
                 reflected. Each single hit is stronger than that of Flare and
                 also there is a 1-in-4 chance of this being cast.
          Flare: 10 MP Each
                 A burst of Nuclear Energy is exploded towards an opponent doing
                 excellent damage. This attack can be reflected however and the
                 single hit is less than a single hit of Comet.
    
          The Tears command is still questionable to me. To be honest I'm not 
          sure what it really does. Once she uses this command the opponents 
          become startled or at least that's what the message box at the top 
          says. I think it lowers the opponents' defense and she will need to use 
          this serveral times to get some significant results.
    
    
    =============================================================================
    -------------------------------- [ Rosa ] -----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    The White Mage of Baron and girlfriend of Cecil. She constantly is at the  
    side of Cecil at tough times and often tries to help cheer up her friends as 
    well. As being Cecil's girlfriend she is captured by Golbez and hopes that 
    Cecil will come for her. She is also an expert at using Bow and Arrows along 
    with using White Magic to heal her allies incase of critical or servere 
    unjury.
    
    NOTE: Whenever you are equipped with a Bow and Arrow make sure you put the 
          Bow on the opposite hand, for example if Rosa is Right handed put the 
          Bow on her Left Hand and the arrows on her left hand so that your 
          attack power can significantly increase. This goes the same for all 
          characters liable to use a Bow and Arrow(Cecil, Rosa, Palom, Porom, and 
          Rydia).
    
          Whenever you are equipped with both a Bow and Arrow you should always 
          use the aim command. This allows Rosa to have a higher accuracy rate as 
          well as a stronger punch towards her opponent.
    
          As you might have guessed it, buying Arrows can get pretty steap 
          because evetually you will have to refill her Arrows as she runs out.
          When all of her Arrow supply is depleted she will have to use her fists       
          to attack or use a staff.
    
    
    =============================================================================
    -------------------------------- [ Rydia ] ----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    When she was just a young child Kain and Cecil accidentally brings forth a
    package(Bomb Ring in Japan) that destroys her hometown. She also loses her
    mother because Kain and Cecil kills the Mist. Meaning that if the Monster
    summoned is slayed that means that the Summoner also loses his or her life.
    She hates Cecil and Kain for what they have done and summons a monster that
    creates a massive earthquake that swallows up Kain. She is also injured by 
    the occurance and Cecil brings her to Kaipo to help her heal her wounds. He
    feels that is the least he can do for all the pain and suffering he has 
    caused her. During his overnight rest Guards from Baron were sent to kill
    all Summoners by order of the King of Baron(Odin). Cecil reluctantly 
    refuses and attacks and slays the Guards and Rydia realizes that he did not
    mean to kill his mother or burn her town but she still doesn't forgive him.
    Later she will become more powerful in her Magic but her HP and Defense
    remains extremely low throughout the game.
    
    NOTE: Rydia will lose her ability to use White Magic after you meet her 
          again in the Underground World.
    
          First appeared in the release of Final Fantasy 3 for the Famicom Summon      
          magic is very powerful at times and also there is no defense against it 
          meaning that no Wall will be able to bounce back the attack.
    
          Rydia can learn the strongest attack in the game which is METEO when  
          she is at level 60. Note though, it takes a long while for METEO to
          come out and under some circumstances, it shouldn't be used at all.
    
    
    =============================================================================
    -------------------------------- [ Tellah ] ---------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    The legendary Sage of Mysidia swears revenge on the death of his beloved 
    Daughter Anna. At first he blames and attacks Edward and runs off on his 
    own after Anna's last words. Later after his visit on Mt.Ordeals he realizes 
    who the real threat is and who killed his daughter, Golbez. While at first he 
    only knows basic Black and White magic, but after his encounter with Mt. 
    Ordeals he remembers all the lost magic, but his MP still remains low 
    limiting his uses of high power magic. He also remembers Meteo, and when 
    Meteo is unsealed that means the age of Apocaplypse is near. Also he cannot 
    use Meteo because his MP is too low to cast it.
    
    NOTE: After Tellah's encounter with Mt. Ordeals his White and Black magic   
          level will be significantly higher so now he can cast hard hitting 
          spells like Virus or Fire3.
    
    =============================================================================
    --------------------------------- [ Yang ] ----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    The expert Karate Master(a Monk in the Japaneese version) martial artist is 
    the prince of Fabul with powerful attacks that can easily sway battles in the 
    party's direction. The party first encounters Yang during their trip to Mt. 
    Hobs as Yang was suddenly attacked by Golbez's minions. Yang easily took care 
    of the minions but the Commander that was leading the minions did not look 
    like he would be taken down easily, but that's when the party decided to 
    help. With Yang's numerous abilities and his lethal attacks its always a good 
    option to keep him upfront.
    
    NOTE: Dont' bother using the Build Command with Yang. It takes up three 
          turns for him to do an attack that does equal damage as if he wasn't  
          using the Build command. However it does raise your chance of 
          doubling your attack power, but only if you lucky and its pretty rare 
          if that ever happens.
    
          Also don't bother using the Endur command either. Although it says his 
          defense is raised it is only raised by one point each time and it takes 
          two turns for him to use it and will leave him open to attack.
          Also his Kick command will hit all enemies but his overall attack power 
          will be averaged depending on how many enemies there are, so each hit 
          will not result in his normal attack power, so unless there are three 
          or more opponents just use Yang's fight command instead.
    
    
    
    =============================================================================
    ------------------------ [ General and Basic Tips ] -------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    -- You should try to safe often. You'll never know what lies around the 
       corner.
    
    -- Always try to keep a constant supply of items. Stuff like Cure Potions or 
       Tents and Cabins, because most likely your magic will run dry.
    
    -- You might not always have the best equipment on and sometimes the prices 
       can get fairly steep. You should always stay near a save point or a town 
       and wander around and fight enemies for gold, that way you won't be too 
       far off from your resting point incase enemies give you some trouble.
    
    -- Having trouble against a boss? Having the newest equipment is not always 
       the best choice. If you are fighting against Rubicant and you so happen to
       have the Fire Brand sword then what good will it do you if you just keep 
       healing him? Also some bosses might not have weaknesses and you will have
       to start gaining some levels before you fight the boss. Also are your 
       rows properly straightened out? Always place fighters up front and magic
       users or people with low defense in the back, that way you can have more 
       of a balanced approach when fighting against bosses or enemies.
    
    -- If you can heal outside of battle, you should use your magic instead of 
       your items. Items don't come back after use and you will need gold to buy
       more items. However magic can be replenished at save points, inns, or 
       using your Ethers.
    
    -- Try not to run from battle too often, incases you'll end up losing alot
       of gold. Also enemies that are stronger than you, you'll lose more gold 
       from them if you run away. You might not always lose gold, but do it too
       often you probably won't have enough to buy yourself the latest armor or
       even give yourself a good night's rest.
    
    -- Bows and Arrows are weapons that don't lose strength when your in the 
       back row but they have a very low hit percentage. Only Rosa can use aim
       and successfully attack the target at a higher percentage ratio. Also if 
       the person is left handed then put the bow on the right hand and arrows 
       on the left hand, this way your attack power can be higher than if the 
       bow was on the left hand. 
    
    -- Believe it or not but Bows and Arrows can be the most expensive weapons in
       the game. Simply because you have to buy arrows over and over again 
       because as you can expect arrows don't have unlimited uses, so always try
       to keep an extra Rod or Staff in your inventory incase you run out of 
       arrows.
    
    -- When ever you see treasure chests, try to save before you look in them or
       keep your party's HP up. Sometimes there are monsters inside those 
       treasure chests that will take quite a bit of work to defeat.
    
    -- Keep consideration of your magic points. Using your most powerful magic to
       defeat opponents is not always the best way to end the battle often you
       won't have enough to replenish your party's HP.
    
    -- Constantly keep your party's HP up. Unless you are a 100% sure you will
       be able to mop the floor with your enemies then you should always keep a 
       close eye on your HP.
    
    -- Whenever you bring your party member back from a swoon status always have
       the next available person heal that party member because your party 
       member's HP will not regenerate themselves and the party member only 
       starts out with 15% of their max HP, so unless you have LIFE2 then I 
       suggest you should always have the next available person heal the party 
       member just back from the swoon status so you wouldn't have to risk that 
       party member suffering a blow that would put that person back on swoon 
       status. 
    
    -- You can switch weapons during battle. Just go to your Item command and 
       scroll up and you will see the weapon or shield in your left and right
       hands. Hit A on the weapon you want to replace and go over the weapon in
       your inventory and press A. Be sure to make your decision quick otherwise
       an opponent can seriously damage your party members while you were looking
       for the best weapon, so make sure you have the most suited weapon before
       you enter battle.
    
    -- When your selecting your magic, the Active Time Battle stops so take your
       time to decide which magic is best.
    
    -- Also continously attack your opponent because unlike previous Final 
       Fantasy games you will be attacked even if you are not ready, so make 
       sure you attack quickly. Incase you still need some time to think you can
       always hit the Start button during battle to pause the game.
    
    -- Keep magic users in the magic and fighters in the front, that way your 
       healers won't die so quickly. You can also do this during battle by 
       hitting the control pad left on the command box, but its only for the
       battle. To make this permanent(or until you decide to change it again) go 
       to your menu screen and hit change. Also you can switch the position of 
       your characters by using the Form command on the Menu Screen.
    
    -- When you get turned into a Toad, Pig, or Mini your stats drop and you 
       cannot use magic. To reverse this status effect you can either sleep at an
       inn, use a Tent or Cabin, use your Heal spell, or you can cast that same
       status effect spell back on the character that was transformed. For 
       example if a party member was turned into a Mini status you can cast Mini 
       again to change that person back.
    
    -- Always check pots or other things that can carry items besides treasure 
       chests, although most of the things you find are just Potions, you should
       pick them up anyways because hey, they're free!
    
    -- If this is your first time playing an RPG game or Final Fantasy game for
       that matter then I suggest you go to the Training Room in the Town of 
       Baron to gather up information about the basics of the game. Learning the
       basics of the game will help you learn some of the more advance and 
       complex features of the games and also most other RPGs.
    
    -- Try to keep all weapons you find that normally are not sold at weapons 
       shops, also armors, they can help you out in future battles or when your
       Bow and Arrow users run out of Bows and they need a new weapon to use 
       in the middle of battles.
    
    -- Riding Chocobos is a fun way to move across town to town, but if your
       riding Chocobos enemies can't attack you, so your better off that way
       right? Wrong. Riding Chocobos mean that you do not gain any expierience
       points or GOLD from the enemies you would have fought. So when your 
       losing battles or when you do not have enough money for equipment then 
       you will realize that riding chocobos is not a good idea, but however if
       you are low on life and your magic is out and your cure supplies are gone
       not to mention TENTs and CABINs then it would be a good idea to make it to
       the next town without fighting any random encounters.
    
    -- If you haven't noticed it, your levels are divided among your party
       members. Sometimes it might take a long while to gain levels, but there is
       an easy way to gain expierience quickly. Say you have five party members 
       in your group and Cecil needs to reach level 99. First off you kill the 
       other four party members besides Cecil. Hopefully Cecil is strong enough 
       to fight on his own, then have Cecil fight any random encounters, its best 
       if he fights opponents like the EVIL MASK or BLUE DRAGON. Here just have 
       Cecil win, at first it might seem like a struggle, but Cecil will gain 
       levels 5 times faster than before because his party members' expierience 
       points are given to Cecil because his other party members did not 
       participate in battle.
    
    -- Finally, last but not least talk to everybody in town, you never know what
       you might expect.

    ---------------------- [ Final Fantasy IV Walkthrough ] ---------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    
      The infamous air fleet of Baron is on their way back to Baron after taking
      the Water Crystal of Mysidia. As the fleet heads back Cecil thinks about
      his actions against the innocent people of Mysidia. He takes the lives of 
      innocent people so that the King of Baron can have the Water Crystal, but
      for what purpose? Before the Elder of Mysidia gives the Water Crystal to 
      Cecil, Cecil's men had killed innocent lives to get his demand. His men 
      also share Cecil's regret, but Cecil knows that the King took Cecil in when
      he was a young orphan and he cannot disobey the King's orders. Suddenly 
      the fleet is attacked by a horde of monsters that appear out of nowhere. 
      Cecil easily dismantles the monsters and his crew suffered only minor 
      injuries. Why are so many monsters appearing now these days? Where do they
      come from? After the battles with the monsters the fleet heads back to 
      Baron. Here he hands the King the Crystal, as Baigan(Beigan in Japan) talks 
      to the King Cecil questions the King's orders. The King is furious and 
      relieves Cecil as commander of the Red Wings, Kain overhears and tries to 
      defend Cecil, but he too is asked to go with Cecil. Before he leaves Cecil 
      and Kain is given a package(Bomb Ring in Japan) to deliver to the Village 
      of Mist, and they do not know what is inside the package. Once you leave 
      the King's throne Kain thinks that after Cecil completes this mission the 
      King will restore Cecil as Commander of the Red Wings again, but for now 
      Kain tells Cecil to get some rest for tommorow.
    
    
    
    THE NIGHT BEFORE THE JOURNEY     Party's level: 10
      After the scenario you can talk to Kain if you want. You'll know why Cecil
      has decided to wield the Dark Sword, because the King of Baron had asked 
      him to do so. Now head down into the next room, on the right side of the 
      screen is a door with a switch that will open a room with three treasure 
      chest, one is 300 Gold(Gil in Japan), another one is a CURE1 POTION, and 
      the other is a TENT. Now head to the left side, after that just head 
      towards the stairs, in this room you'll see Rosa who comes and tries to 
      talk to Cecil, Cecil is somewhat disturbed by the recent event and Rosa 
      wishes to see Cecil later. For now just continue on. Once your outside head 
      for the tower on the left side above you, but before you can reach the 
      tower Cid, the Chief Engineer of Baron sees you and wishes to talk to you. 
      Hear you'll get a brief history about Cid. He builds airships for Baron but 
      he doesn't like them to be used as weapons, and then he leaves because he 
      thinks his daughter might worry about him. Also you can choose to explore 
      the rest ofthe Castle if you want but you won't get very far due to the 
      fact that the guards around the Castle of Baron will not let you through 
      unless they have the King's orders. Once you reach the tower a maid will be 
      standing in front of your room to tell you that your sheets were made. When 
      your in your room just go up to the bed and the room will darken and Cecil 
      will take a rest. During the middle of the night Rosa will come to Cecil. 
      She seems questioned about Cecil's recent behavior. Cecil tells Rosa 
      that he feels alot of guilt about stealing from innocent people. Rosa is 
      shocked to hear this and Cecil vows that he will never again do undecent 
      acts among innocent people even if ordered the the King of Baron himself. 
      Now Cecil will tell Rosa to take a rest. Until the next morning the two 
      head off into the unknown land. For years Cecil and Kain have relied on the 
      transportation of the Red Wings, but now they must set foot into the 
      unknown. Here before Cecil and Kain leaves you'll see a prologue about the 
      things to come, Why has the King been behaving so differently? Why are 
      there so many monsters appearing lately? You don't have the answers right 
      now and you'll have to find them yourself.
    
    
    TOWN OF BARON     Party's level: 10
      Once your outside to the sides of the Castle of Baron is the Twon of Baron.
      Inside hear there really isn't much to do except talk to the people and 
      gather information if you want, but right now its not neccessary. The door 
      on the left side of town is locked also the doors leading to the Weapons 
      and Armors shops are locked. You can't unlock them now, but what you can do 
      is go buy some items for your long journey ahead. What I would recommend is 
      buying two TENTS and buying three CURE1 POTIONS. You really don't need to 
      buy exactly what I say because the battles ahead really aren't that hard, 
      and if you want to stock up on more items you can fight battles outside. 
      the battles outside really won't give you much expierience points but they 
      can give you some good amounts of gold. Also there is a training room in 
      this town, if this is your first time playing an RPG I suggest you get to 
      know the basics first like I said before, so that it can help you advance 
      further into the game without much hassle. Also notice one of the students 
      telling you that Lightning damage is weak towards water opponents. Once 
      your done head north pass the bridges until you see a cave.
    
    
    DANGERS LIE AHEAD IN THE CAVE OF MIST     Party's level: 10
      You'll notice that when you check your status that both Cecil and Kain are
      at level 10. Kain has to gain nearly double the expierience points to gain
      a level than Cecil has to, but for some reasons I'm not sure. You can gain
      levels by fighting monsters inside the Cave of Mist if you want, and if you
      do stay near the entrance and once your outside use a TENT to heal your
      wounds. If your too weak to fight anymore battles hold the L & R buttons
      down at the same time during battle to escape from battle. Once you have
      reached the entrance of the cave you can save the game if you want. When 
      your all set to go enter the cave and take the right side to find a ladder.
      In this cave you will also notice a fog or mist of some sort surrounding 
      the cave that's gives the cave a white transparent look. Be sure to collect 
      the treasure chests in here as there are two CURE POTIONS and two HEAL 
      POTIONS. Occasionally when you advance deeper into the cave of Mist you 
      Cecil and Kain will hear a voice telling them to go back. Dont' worry about 
      it, just keep advancing through until your near the exit. Once you've 
      reached near the exit the mysterious voice that is talking gives you a 
      second warning to leave, don't bother to listen just keep advancing. Once 
      you've reached the exit the mysterious voice will ask you one more time if 
      you want to leave, if you choose "No" you will not be able to advance but 
      if you choose "Yes" you will initiate a fight with the Summoned Monster.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: D.MIST(Dragon Mist)      HP: 400
    --------------------------------------------
      This boss fight shouldn't be too hard but I'm here to help incase your 
      stuck! First off just continue to attack the mist having Cecil pound the 
      Dragon with his regular attacks and having Kain Jump the Dragon. It 
      wouldn't be much use if Kain jumps the Dragon because it normal attack is 
      pretty weak anyways. Continue to attack the Dragon until it starts forming 
      into a Mist or when the message box on the top of the battle screen tells 
      you to stop. If you attack the Mist Dragon while it's in Mist form it will 
      counter attack with COLDMIST which is double the damage of its normal 
      attack and it hits both Cecil and Kain. For now when the Mist Dragon is in 
      Mist form just wait until the message box gives you the signal or when the 
      Mist starts to form back into a Dragon. When your HP falls below 60 use 
      your CURE1 POTIONS you have bought earlier to heal the wounded party member 
      and continue to attack. Repeat this process until you have defeated the 
      Mist Dragon. By now Cecil should have easily gained a level and don't be 
      surprised if Kain doesn't. Once your done head out of the Cave of Mist and 
      you can choose to save the game before entering the town of Mist. Before 
      you enter the Town of Mist make sure you deequip Kain. After you have saved 
      the game enter the Town of Mist.
    
    
    THE PACKAGE REVEALS ITSELF!!     Party's level: 11
      When you reach inside the PACKAGE that the King told you to deliver 
      suddenly pops out to reveal fire monsters that sets the town of Mist on 
      fire. Cecil and Kain are shocked to see that the King of Baron would do 
      this. The little girl that is above Cecil and Kain is crying over the death 
      of her mother. Here Kain tells Cecil that killing the Summoned Monster also 
      kills the Summoner. Kain saids that both he and Cecil should be rid of the 
      little girl and Cecil is dumbfounded to hear what Kain has to say. Cecil 
      vows that he will not hurt innocent lives and Kain realizes what Cecil is 
      trying to do and says that whatever Cecil wishes to do Kain will always be 
      at his side. The little girl over hears the conversation between Cecil and 
      Kain and hates them for what they have done. Cecil and Kain tries to rescue 
      the girl out of the town before she is taken along with the town. The girl 
      refuses and Cecil and Kain have no choice but to take the little girl out 
      of the town by force. Here the girl initiates the battle, but there is 
      little that Cecil and Kain can do as the girl summons a Titan that rips the 
      ground apart sending Kain into the underground and most of town with it as 
      well. Afterwards Cecil finds the little girl unconsious and he decides to 
      help her to a near by town to help heal her wounds. Also you'll notice that 
      the mountains are caved in blocking your way back to Baron.
    
    
    TOWARDS TO THE DESERT TOWN OF KAIPO     Party's level: 11
      After the scenario head towards the town of Kaipo which is found on the   
      south
      side of an oasis in the middle of the desert. Once inside Cecil helps the
      little girl by sending her to an inn. The innkeeper realizes that the girl
      is hurt and does not wish to charge Cecil any money. As the little girl 
      wakes up Cecil tries to talk to her but to no avail. Then the two take a 
      rest, during the middle of the night soldiers from Baron ask that Cecil 
      give the little girl to the King of Baron. Cecil refuses to give the girl 
      to the soldiers and he decides to defend the girl.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: OFFICER AND THREE SOLDIERS    HP: 30(Soldiers) 120(OFFICER)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Well this battle shouldn't be too hard, I'm not even sure if I'm suppose 
      to use the word hard at all! You can choose to take down the Officer if you
      want, but mainly focus your attention on the Soldiers(BaronGuard in Japan).
      If you take out the Soldiers first that means the Officer will just 
      retreat.
      However if you do manage to take down the Officer along with the Soldiers
      you will recieve a significant amount of expierience points.
    
      After the battle, the little girl will realize that you were trying to 
      protect her. Cecil can't ask for her forgiveness, but the least he can do
      is try to protect her. She tells Cecil her name which is Rydia. She's at
      level 1 with very little HP and MP. At first she doesn't know any WHITE 
      or BLACK magic but later after gaining a level or two she will learn some 
      basic BLACK and WHITE magic. Afterwards heads towards the northeast side 
      of the town of Kaipo and in the room you'll find Rosa, who is serverely
      sick and can barely speak. She has an extremely high fever and the only
      thing that can cure her condition is the Sandruby located in the cave of
      the Antlion. For now head outside and look for a weapons shop. By a Bow
      for Rydia amd about 25 Iron Arrows. In the armor shop you do not need to
      buy anything because Rydia is equipped with all the armor the store has to
      offer, but if you want buy the extra CAP HELMET for now. When your done
      leave the town and head northeast towards a cave. Now is the ideal time
      to save your game.
    
    
    SEARCH FOR THE SANDRUBY     Party's level: 11
      Once you have reached inside go up and take both treasures in the 
      treasure chest which is a HEAL AND CURE1 POTION. Now head to the left 
      side and you'll see an old man near the end of a bridge, first take the 
      treasure chest below you which is a TENT and talk to the old man. He will
      tell you that a Bard has tricked his daughter into running away with him
      at Damcyan, coincidentally where Cecil and Rydia is headed to find the
      Sandruby to heal Rosa's high fever. Afterwards Tellah the Sage will join 
      your party and he will need the help of the Black Sword to defeat the 
      monster that dwells in the waterfalls. Surprisingly Tellah's stats are
      higher than Cecil's. Tellah's knowledge of both BLACK AND WHITE magic 
      should help back up Rydia as she is just learning her magic potiential. 
      However this is just the icing on the cake because Tellah has lost most of
      his knowledge of the stronger spells. Also Tellah's MPs are pretty high as
      of now, but even if you gain him levels his MP will not rise also he is at
      level 20 with about 340 HP, but he cannot attack very well with weapons. 
      Here
      continue on but don't forget the treasure chest to the right, you'll need 
      to
      enter the waters to retrieve the treasure chest. Inside the treasure chest
      is an IRONRING. Equip it on Tellah and also the Cap you bought earlier at 
      Kaipo. Now continue on back and make your way to the next room. In this 
      next
      room head up and you'll have to walk in the water again(which is harmless)
      and then make your way to the left side and pick up yet another CURE1 
      POTION. Now continue along down and take the next ladder, to the left of
      this room is an ETHER1. Afterwards just amke your way to the room to the 
      left side. Here in this room, luckily Tellah already has a TENT, so you
      won't need to worry about using one of your own. Here you will see Rydia
      sleeping and Cecil and Tellah have a quiet conversation. Tellah notes that
      he sees alot of potiential in Rydia and he will also give you a brief 
      rundown about why his daughter Anna has run away. Anna is his only child
      and she ran away with the Bard because Tellah would not agree to his 
      daughter Anna's marriage. After the little scenario you will be given the
      chance to save, your wounds are fully healed and your magic points are 
      completely restored. Now would probably be a good time to save. When you 
      head out of this save room continue on and don't forget to take a look 
      inside the treasure chest to the right to pick up an ICEROD. Afterwards 
      make
      your way through to the middle of the room and enter through. In this next
      room there really isn't much here except for a CURE1 POTION, also you will
      see some regions of the room that are oddly shaded with a black color. Go 
      through that region and go towards the right, on the right side is a 
      LEATHER
      HELMET, its hidden but at the same time its not hidden because its kinda 
      conspicuous that the area is shaded. You will encounter alot of these 
      throughout the game, but if you so happen to have the Japanees version of 
      this game then the hidden areas are covered up. After you have equipped the
      LEATHER HELMET move onto the next room. Here in this room you'll see the 
      vast region below you, don't worry you can't fall off because it would be
      stupid if you could anyways. To the left are two ETHER1's and to the right
      at the bottom is a yet again, another CURE1 POTION, also pickup the 
      DARKNESS sword for Cecil. It will boost his Attack power by ten raising it
      from 17 to 27, which is a significant boost. Before you leave this room 
      Tellah will tell you that the monster is just ahead on the other cave and
      there's an area outside which you can save. You should make it a point to 
      save the game now.
    
    
    8-LEGGED OBSTACLE     Part's level 13
      Once you enter this cave just keep going right, there is only two treasure
      chest in this room one is an ETHER1 POTION and the other one is another 
      DARKNESS equipment for Cecil. Equip the new piece of armor and continue on.
      Also in this room are only two treasure chests. Both of them contain 
      DARKNESS
      equipment for Cecil, equip those on and head towards the middle of the
      waterfall to engage in a battle that was foretold by Tellah the Sage.
    
    -----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: OCTOMAMM       HP: 1400
    -----------------------------------
      Although there are eight parts to OCTOMAMM he is still only going to be
      one target. At first OCTOMAMM can attack rather fast, but as you start to
      attack he will begin to slow down. Here have Rydia attack with her CHOCO 
      summon or you can lose LIT1, but Rydia learns LIT1 at level 5 so incase 
      your
      levels with Rydia are not up there yet, then just stick with the CHOCO 
      summon, which will do more damage than her LIT1 attack, and have Tellah
      attack with LIT1. Cecil's attacks should do quite a bit of damage against
      OCTOMAMM, probably about 130 HP of damage with each hit. As you continue to
      attack you will notice that each leg of OCTOMAMM dies, so I think that 
      every
      150 HP you lose OCTOMAMM he will die, except for his last leg which is 
      about 350 HP. This boss fight shouldn't be too hard and when you hear 
      Tellah
      saying that you have slowed down the monster your about near victory.
    
      After the boss fight head through the waterfall and onto your next 
      destination, the Castle of Damcyan. Also its not a bad idea to save here
      after your battle with OCTOMAMM, but don't bother using a TENT.
    
    
    UNEXPECTED SURPRISE BY THE RED WINGS     Party's level:14
      Before you reach the Castle of Damcyan the Red Wings come out of nowhere 
      and bombard the castle reducing it to a pile of rubble. Here just enter 
      the castle. Midway through you will see a room full of treasure chest, 
      all of them are already opened except one on the top of the room, open that
      treasure chest to obtain a TENT and continue on towards the center of the
      castle of Damcyan. Upon entering the castle you will see the remains of the
      once beautiful castle of Damcyan and also the downed guards. Once you have
      reached the center of the castle you will see Tellah's only daughter Anna
      lying on the floor almost dying. Tellah becomes enraged as he attacks
      the "Spoony  Bard." You can't control this battle and everything the Bard
      is trying to say Tellah ignores, when Anna speaks Tellah comes to his 
      senses and stops his attack against the Bard. Here Anna explains what had
      happened, it appears that when Edward and Anna was about to leave they were
      attacked by the Red Wings of Baron, also they had taken the Crystal of 
      Fire. Anna explains that Edward is the prince of Damcyan and he was 
      disguised as a Bard so that he can go to Kaipo and find Anna. Anna saved
      Edward's life by shielding him from the arrows that were brought upon by 
      the Red Wings fleet. Afterwards Anna dies and Tellah is once again enraged,
      he wishes to take vengence upon the one called Golbez, who led the Red 
      Wings' attack against Damcyan. Cecil says he can't go alone but Tellah is
      too fustrated and angry to listen and he goes off on his own. Here Edward
      cries over Anna's death and Rydia calls him a "Crybaby!" she tells him that
      he is not the only one who has lost the ones he loved and tells him that he
      is a grown man. Edward does not care and he wishes to stay with Anna, 
      Cecil comes over and literally knocks some sense into him. He tells Edward
      that Anna would not like it if he was just to stay here and Cecil 
      desprately
      needs Edward's help. Edward wonders how he can help and Cecil tells him 
      that
      he needs to find the Sandruby to cure Rosa's fever. Edward tells him that
      he has a Hovercraft and with it you can reach the cave of the Antlion. 
      Before the party leaves out of the castle, Edward comes and says the final
      goodbye before leaving to help his new friends. Once your outside you can 
      get off your Hovercraft by pressing the A button and re-entering the 
      castle, if you have bothered to talk to the guards you'll notice that one
      of them said that a recovery pot is above, the guard that told you that was
      in the same room you got the tent. Once you've reached inside the middle of
      the caslte you'll notice that all the down guards are gone, the pot on the
      left will completely heal your party members and also reverse any negative
      status effects, also you don't have to talk to the two mages that are 
      around the pot since they won't give you any info that you already don't
      know. The pot to the left will completely restore your loss MP. Once your
      done head out to your Hovercraft.
    
    
    THE ANTLION'S CAVE AND THE SANDRUBY     Party's level:14
      From Damcyan go northeast through the shallow rocks and you should find
      another part of the continent. When you reach this place you will see Mt.
      Hobs, when you enter Mt. Hobs a thick block of Ice blocks the way, for now
      there is nothing you can do here. Now head down into the cave below. You 
      should save it right now because the enemies inside are pretty strong. 
      Inside here there are several treasure chests. To the left side of the cave
      is a CURE1 POTION and 190 Gold, to the right of the cave is 210 Gold and a
      CURE1 POTION. Towards the bottom left of the cave is a TENT and a CURE1 
      POTION yet again. After you have collected the six treasure chests head
      down to the bottom right. In this next room you will find a your first 
      LIFE POTION of the game in the treasure chest below, the door next to it
      contains Edward's strongest harp, the CHARM HARP. Equip it on Edward 
      because it doubles his attack power, afterwards ignore the obvious hidden
      area below you and go up towards the door, the treasure chest above the
      door contains a HEAL POTION. Go into the door and when your in the next
      room go into the door and you will see a save point and also three 
      treasure chests, collect the LIFE POTION, ETHER1, and the TENT from the
      three treasure chests and save and heal your wounds if any. Now continue
      back to the room before and head to the left side to pick up 250 Gold(gil
      in Japan) and head towards the center of the room and into the Antlion's
      nest. Here there is basically nothing in here except for the SANDRUBY,
      the unique structure forms around the center of the Antlion's nest, just
      head towards the center of the room and you will see Edward stop. He will
      casually take try to take the SANDRUBY from the Antlion but the Antlion 
      snaps and attacks Edward, Cecil and Rydia intervene.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: ANTLION      HP: 1000      ITEM: SANDRUBY
    -----------------------------------------------------
      This boss fight is fairly easy, but a few mistakes can cost you. Here the
      Antlion attacks are nothing to worry about because they only do 1 HP of
      damage, but watch for the COUNTER attack. There isn't much you can do 
      about this because each time you attack him with a Physical attack he will
      counter. Each one of those counter hits are about 21 HP of damage which can
      be very serious towards Rydia and Edward because Edward starts out at level
      5 with 60 HP and three shots can easily swoon him. But Cecil's attacks are 
      too strong to pass up so just have Cecil constantly attack the ANTLION, 
      have
      Rydia use her CHOCO summon and Edward be the healer and part time attacker.
      Once your HP starts to drop below 40, you should consider using CURE1 
      POTIONS to help keep your HPs up. After a while you should be rid of the
      ANTLION and obtain the SANDRUBY.
    
      Afterwards Edward will question why the ANTLION has attacked him. Cecil 
      reveals that there are too many monsters appearing these days and the 
      ANTLION must defend itself. Afterwards you should head out of the cave and
      back to the desert town Kaipo. With your newly aquired Hovercraft you can
      reach the desert town of Kaipo rather easily by going all the way to the 
      west side and you will see shallow rocks that the Hovercraft can travel by. 
    
    
    RETURN TO THE DESERT TOWN OF KAIPO     Party's level: 15
      Here return to the house you saw Rosa in earlier. When you enter here
      talk to Rosa and your item box will appear, hit the "A" button over the
      SANDRUBY to use the SANDRUBY over Rosa. Here she will awaken and she will
      tell you about Golbez controlling all of the nation of Baron. She also
      tells you about the Crystal of Air and Crystal of Earth. The Crystal of
      Fire is already in the hands of Golbez, and Rosa wishes to join Cecil, but
      Cecil refuses. Rosa followed Cecil because she heard that Cecil was
      swallowed by the earthquake in the Village of Mist. Also she points out
      that the Crystal of Air is towards Fabul, but right now they need to get
      over Mt.Hobs which is covered by a thick block of Ice, she asked Rydia to
      cast fire but Rydia hesitates and saids she can not cast fire. Afterwards
      Edward realizes that Rosa wants to be with Cecil and he convinces Cecil to
      bring her along. Here Cecil tells Rosa to get a good night's sleep before
      they go. Here  in the middle of the night Edward goes out and plays a tune
      in memory of Anna. During the middle of his play he is attacked by a 
      WaterHag.
    
    ----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: WATERHAG        HP: 60
    ----------------------------------
      Here Edward must fight this battle alone, Anna will help guide Edward
      towards victory as Edward should be able to easily conquer this battle.
      Just have Edward constantly attack and the WATERHAG should be gone.
    
      Afterwards Anna tells Edward that she must leave, but Edward doesn't want
      to be alone, but she tells him to give the love he gave to Anna to all his
      people. Here Anna leaves and Edward questions himself as what he is suppose
      to do. Before you leave make sure you stock up on a good amount of Arrows
      for Rosa and Rydia(if you have bought Bow and Arrows for Rydia earlier),
      Rosa starts off at level 10 with 150 HP, but her defense is still weak so
      keep her in the backrow. Now head back to Mt.Hobs via the Hovercraft, which
      is northeast of the Antlion's nest.
    
    
    THE JOURNEY OF FABUL THROUGH MT.HOBS     Party's level: 15
      Here there is the thick block of Ice that I told you about earlier. 
      Rosa asks Rydia to cast Fire but she can't. Rydia will not cast fire
      because she is afraid of fire because it burned her home down, but Rosa
      tells Rydia that she believes in her and she is the only one who can
      melt the Ice blocking the entrance of Mt.Hobs. She persuades Rydia to use
      fire because she tells her that if they don't get through many more people
      will be in danger, here Rydia sums up all her inner strength and casts 
      fire,
      the Ice block of Mt. Hobs melts and Rydia has now learned FIRE1. Afterwards
      the party thanks Rydia. For now continue on towards the mountain. When you
      first see a door, take the door and you will be on the side of a mountain
      with a save point and four treasure chests, they contain a TENT, CURE1
      POTION, HEAL POTION, and 350 Gold. Save your game and heal your wounds if
      any and continue on back to the right side of the mountain. Also take a 
      chance to look down at the valley below, despite it being 16-bits it looks
      quite breathtaking doesn't it? Now head to the Summit and you will see a
      Karate Master being attacked by a group of IMP CAPTAINs, the Karate Master
      easily dismantles them, but the MOMBOMB comes after him, the party realizes
      that it will be a difficult battle alone and they decide to help.
    
    ---------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: MOMBOMB      HP: 3200
    ---------------------------------
      Now this is what I'm talking about! 5 against 1! Despite your overpowering
      numbers this is still going to be a very difficult fight. Have Rydia use
      her CHOCB summon, have Cecil attack normally, have Rosa use her AIM 
      command, have Yang attack not Kick, and have Edward be your part time 
      Attacker and Healer. After you do about 1500 HP of damage the MOMBOMB will
      change form, just continue to attack and if your party's HP drops below 75,
      then keep them up there. The MOMBOMB will give you a warning when its about
      to explode, that is the sign to heal yourself if your HP is below 75. When
      it does Explode the party suffers extensive damage about 50-60 HP of damage
      to every character, quickly heal your party because your party's HP(besides
      Cecil) is still pretty low. Now it turns itself into 3 BOMBs and 3 
      GREYBOMBs.
      That's 6 targets for you to attack now, each one of the targets only have 
      100 HP and this time have Yang use his KICK command to attack all the BOMBs
      at once and continue your usual attack pattern. 
    
      Afterwards Yang thanks the party for helping him out in battle and they
      tell Yang that the Crystal of Air is in danger and they must protect it 
      before it goes into the hands of Golbez. Here they give each other a 
      briefing on their backgrounds and why they are willing to help Yang. It 
      appears that Yang is the only survivor of his forces and the people at 
      Fabul
      are still in training. After the little scenario go towards the east side 
      of
      the mountain and continue on, there are no treasure chests along the way as
      well. Once you have reached outside keep going east and past the mountains
      to find the Castle of Fabul. Here save and use a TENT just in front of the
      Castle before entering the castle.
    
    
    DEFEND THE CASTLE OF FABUL NOW!!     Party's level: 16
      Here once you get inside keep going and you will see a Weapons/Armor shop
      to the right and the INN is on the left side. Go buy Yang an extra claw of
      your choice, buy Cecil all the available BLACK armor, helmet, and gloves.
      Sell any Shadow and Darkness equipment you may have and continue on towards
      the center of the castle. Here you will approach the King of Fabul. Yang 
      informs him about Golbez's forces and they must set up a defence(that's how
      its spelled in the game) immediately. The King of Fabul has trouble 
      trusting
      in Cecil because he is the Dark Knight of Baron, but Yang persuades the 
      King
      that Cecil and his friends came to his aid when he was attacked. Here 
      Prince
      Edward tells the King that he is glad to see him again but he tells the 
      King
      what he had lost and the King is sorry for his misunderstanding. Here the 
      King will ask you if you want to help defend the castle. If you choose 
      "no" 
      then you will be given time before the battle, if you choose "yes" the 
      battle
      will begin. Here you will only be a party of three, so Cecil, Yang, and 
      Edward is the castle's main defence(that's how they spell it in the game) 
      and Rosa and Rydia will be the healers of the wounded people of Fabul. Here 
      the three take stand at the entrance of Fabul as they prepare for battle. 
      Also make sure you can keep your HP during the middle of the battle because
      the battles keep going on and you will not be given time in between to heal
      yourself or your party members. Here after first battle defeat the FIGHTERS
      and ignore the General. After this first battle the RED WINGS of Baron 
      attack the castle and the party does not have any defense against the 
      airships so they must retreat back into the castle(lousy cheaters!). Here
      Yang apologizes for dragging Cecil and his friends into the war. But Cecil 
      tells him that it is not his fight alone and they haven't loss the battle
      yet. The next battle is a WEEPER, IMP CAPTAIN, and a WATERHAG. During these
      battles use Edward as your healer incase your party's HP are low. Here more
      monsters and soldiers from Baron come in and kill the guards near the 
      Weapons/Armor shop and the INN. The next battle will occur with the two
      FIGHTERs and a GENERAL, once again ignore the General and kill the 
      fighters.
      Here the party has to fall back. In the next room Yang tells his trainer to
      lock the doors, but what do you know, he was a monster all along! The next 
      battle is against the GARGOYLE, which shouldn't be too much trouble. 
      Afterwards keep a close check on your party's HP and await the next battle.
      Here its a battle against a WEEPER, WATERHAG, and an IMP CAPTAIN again. 
      Defeat them and as the party tries to pull back Edward slips and falls as 
      the soldiers of Baron come in. Here its another battle agains the two 
      FIGHTERs and the GENERAL, once again take out the two FIGHTERS and continue
      on, and your party's HP should be pretty low right now, so make sure you 
      heal
      first before you attack. Afterwards the party makes their last retreat back
      to the Crystal Room. Here Kain comes in and Cecil is shocked to see Kain 
      alive. Here Kain wants to fight Cecil and Cecil has no choice. Here you 
      shouldn't bother trying to fight Kain because he keeps using that JUMP 
      attack and it will knock you out in a few blows. Here afterwards Kain will 
      try to put Cecil out of his misery and Rosa comes in and tries to stop 
      Kain,
      but Kain is somehwat startled and then Golbez finally meets the party. Here
      Golbez knocks out both Edward and Yang, and commands Kain to take the 
      Crystal of Air which Kain happily ablodges. Here Golbez realizes that Rosa
      is important to Cecil and he kidnappes her and Kain tells Cecil he had a 
      narrow escape. Afterwards Rydia is helpless against Kain and she performs
      the CURE magic towards the party and they are revived out of their wounds.
      Here Yang will help Cecil this time, but Cecil's spirit has taken a hard
      punch. Now leave the Crystal room and to the right is an obvious switch,
      simply step over it and a door will open, leading to three treasure chests,
      containing a CURE1 POTION, BLACK SHIELD for Cecil, and a LIFE POTION. Also
      check the pot to the left to find a CURE1 POTION. Here head out and you 
      will
      see the staircase you entered from, but this time don't go to the 
      staircase,
      but there is a door at the bottom, go to the door and you will see two
      towers, take the tower to the left and enter. Also check the pots again and
      you will find a CURE1 POTION again, the treasure chests contain a HEAL
      POTION, CURE1 POTION, and a TENT. You can continue on if you want, the 
      floor
      above has a Namingway, which will change the name of your party at anytime
      you want. At the top of the tower is Yang's Wife, he will ask her if she is
      okay, and she will happily tel him as she whacked a soldier over the head
      with a frying pan! Now continue onto the top of the right tower and you
      will see the King in his bed, also be sure to pick up the treasure chest
      which contains a TENT. Now talk to the King of Fabul and leave. Now go to
      the INN and you will need to rest. As the party enters the INN they need to
      find a way to take the Crystal of Air back, but they need an Airship. Here
      the party finds out that Baron's main force is the RED WINGs, the sea is
      relatively weak. Yang asks about Kain and Cecil replies that he used
      to be his best friend, but now he is under the control of Golbez. Here Yang
      tells Cecil that the King will ahppily offer his ship to the party. In the
      morning the King of Fabul offers the BLACK sword left by the Dark Knight
      years ago, but it cannot stop True Evil. The ship the party asked for is to
      the east of Fabul. So exit the castle and outside you will find the ship
      that leads to Baron. Inside beofre Yang leaves, his wife says goodbye. Here
      the ship departs for Baron and during the middle of the voyage Yang asks
      what Cecil will do when he reaches Baron, he decides that they must find
      the Chief Engineer of Baron, who is Cid. Before the party can reach Baron
      the mythical Sea God Leviathan stops the party. So it is true! He does 
      exist!
      Here the waves come crashing on the party and Rydia is thrown out of the
      boat, Yang then goes after her to help save her, but both of them cannot
      save themselves. Here the ship gets sucked into the Whirlpool created by
      the Leviathan as the entire party is separated. Afterwards you will find
      Cecil alone on the beach, he wonders where the rest of his party is but
      to no avail.
    
    
    THE TOWN OF MYSIDIA AWAITS     Party's level(Cecil): 17
      Here ignore the people because they will turn you into a Pig or Toad to
      avenge the death of their friends. Just in case you did not listen to me
      talk to the person who casted the spell on you again and you will be 
      changed back into your normal form. Now head towards the center of the town 
      and talk to the Elder of Mysidia. Here the Elder sees that Cecil has gotten 
      a taste of his own medecin, but he also tells Cecil that he cannot depend 
      on the Sword of Darkness if he wishes to achieve his goal. He tells him to 
      go to Mt.Ordeals, but warns Cecil that many have gone to Mt.Ordeals to 
      become a Paladin but none have come back yet. Before Cecil leaves the Elder 
      of Mysidia tells him that he will need two Wizards. Here Porom comes in but 
      Palom is nowhere to be found, then Palom pops out of thin air and appears. 
      here you already meet the giant ego of Palom and the politeness of Porom. 
      After the scenario go to the Weapons shop and buy Porom about 60 WHITE 
      ARROWS(HOLY ARROWS IN JAPAN) and buy Palom a FlameRod. Also buy Palom and 
      Porom every Gaea equipment you can buy and head out. When your out here 
      head towards the east, its a long walk to Mt. Ordeals so make sure you have 
      enough healing supplies as well. Also Porom the White Wizard starts out at 
      level 10 with 110 HP while Palom starts at level 10 with 100 HP, so you 
      might want to consider some level gaining before you head on.
    
    
    CONFRONTATION AT MT. ORDEALS     Party's level: 17
      Here you will see fire blocking the way of the entrance of Mt. Ordeals.
      Afterwards Porom and Palom will knock out the fire, but a scenario comes.
      At this exact time at another destination Golbez summons Milon, the fiend 
      of Earth to stop Cecil. Here Kain wishes that he were to stop Cecil, but 
      Golbez refuses and asks him to watch over Rosa. After the scenario continue 
      on but don't for get to pick up two CURE1 POTIONs. Also monsters here are i
      in the undead category, so make sure you have plenty of WHITE ARROWS and 
      have plenty of MP to use FIRE magic. In the 3rd station you will once again 
      meet up Tellah. Here he explains why he came to Mt. Ordeals. He wishes to 
      learn METEO so that he can avenge his daughter, the twins realize who he 
      is, he is the Sage Mysidia has been raving about. Here Cecil tells him that 
      he came to Mt. Ordeals to become a Paladin. Afterwards Tellah joins your 
      party. Now continue on and in the next area be sure to pick up an ETHER1 
      and another ETHER1. Continue onto the Summit and you will a save point. 
      Save your game and heal your wounds. When you continue on the twins will 
      hear something, but Palom says its not him, when you encounter the bridge 
      you will face off against Milon, the Fiend of Earth. 
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: MILON and FOUR REVENANTS     HP: 2500(MILON) 120(REVENANT)
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
      This fight will drain you down quite a bit. Here have Palom use his FIRE2
      spell against everybody and have Tellah use his FIRE1 spell as well. Always
      have Cecil attack Milon. Use Porom as your healer. Also keep your HP up
      above 50 for the twins, above 100 for both Cecil and Tellah because MILON
      can and will use his LIT1 spell serveral times in a row, this is enough to
      weaken your party. Afterwards you should be rid of Milon. NOTE: PALOM MUST
      BE AT LEVEL 14 TO LEARN FIRE2.
    
      For now do not continue to go forward, but yet go back to the save point
      and save your game. Also don't forget to heal your wounds. Here switch the
      rows of your party members, putting Cecil in the back and Palom, Porom, and
      Tellah in the front. Now continue onto the bridge, but just as you try to
      reach the end of the mountain MILON once again attacks you. This time he
      back attacks you but luckily you switched rows, but for some odd reason you
      did not listen to me you can switch rows during the middle of your battle 
      by hitting the direction pad left on your command box. 
    
    ---------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: MILON Z.     HP: 3000
    ---------------------------------
      Here this battle shouldn't be too hard. Attack Milon with Cecil
      constantly, Milon will have alot of trouble harming Cecil because Cecil
      is in the Dark Armor. Have Palom use FIRE2 and Tellah use FIRE1. Porom
      should be the healer and if your party's HP is not low then let her attack
      with the WHITE ARROWs. This battle shouldn't be that hard. Afterwards 
      continue on, towards the cave of Mt. Ordeals.
    
    
      Don't bother healing yourself after this next battle because after this
      next event your party will be fully helaed. After the battle Cecil will
      see a reflection of himself in the mirror. The mysterious voice talks to
      Cecil, and suddenly Cecil becomes the legendary Paladin. Here the Dark
      Knight of Cecil's past comes out of the reflection, the other party
      members try to help but Cecil tells them that it is his fight alone.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: DARK KNIGHT     HP: Infinite
    ----------------------------------------
      Here you will see the DARK KNIGHT use an unknown attack, that is if you
      have the American version. The DARK KNIGHT will constantly use his
      DragonWave attack, but read the message box, it tells you that you must
      not fight now. This battle is actually pretty easy, just have Cecil defend
      himself, what I mean is do not attack! Doing so makes the battle go on and
      on, because during the trial at Mt. Ordeals to become a Paladin you must
      accept the attacks from your other self. Just let the DARK KNIGHT attack
      Cecil three times and the DARK KNIGHT will be gone.
    
      After the boss fight Cecil is officially a Paladin now, his stats are
      significantly higher than those of a DARK KNIGHT and his HP is way up. Here
      Cecil wonders who was that light that kept calling him son. At the same 
      time Tellah learns all his past magic and the fabled legendary spell METEO. 
      Even though Tellah has learned METEO his MP's are still too low to cast 
      METEO successfully. Here the party leaves Mt. Ordeals, when your heading 
      out take a few battles to earn Cecil some levels. After one battle you can 
      find Cecil gaining 5 levels! Once you leave, outside you can save and use a
      TENT if your HPs are low. You do not have to take that long walk back to
      Mysidia because there is a small square shaped forest surrounded by another
      forest just south of Mt. Ordeals. Inside is a Chocobo Forest. Look for the
      fast moving White Chocobo, each time you talk to it, it will refill your
      entire MP. Also look for the large gap at the north part of the village
      and press the "A" button and it will smell like a Fat Chocobo. Use a CARROT
      if you have bought one and a Fat Chocobo will appear. There really isn't
      much to do here because all the Fat Chocobo will do is just store your
      items. So incase all your 46 slots are filled in your Item Box, you can 
      store your items here. Now talk to one of the yellow Chocobos and you will
      be able to ride one of the Chocobos. Here return to Mysidia, you really
      don't have to ride on a Chocobo you can just return back by walking if you
      want.
    
    
    THE LEGEND OF MYSIDIA IS TRUE!     Party's level: 11
      Here just go to the middle of the town and talk to the Elder. Here the
      Elder is shocked and amazed to find that Cecil is a Paladin, also when
      you talk to the people of Mysidia they will no longer turn you into a Toad
      or Pig. Also the Elder admits his wrong doing by sending Palom and Porom
      to spy on Cecil, but he sees now that there was no need for that. The Elder
      is once again shocked and amazed to find the Legend of Mysidia written on
      the sword, it reads:
     
                              _________________________
                             |     One to be born      |
                             |      from a dragon      |
                             |    hoisting the light   |
                             |      and the dark       |
                             |     arises high up      |
                             |      in the sky to      |

                             |  Veiling the moon with  |

                             |     another promise     |
                             |   to mother earth with  |
                             |    a bounty and mercy.  |
                             ---------------------------
    
      On the Japaneese version it translates to something else, I forgot what it
      was, so if someone could tell me it would be nice.
    
      Afterwards Tellah and Cecil are about to part for Baron as the Elder of
      Mysidia has opened up the Serpant Road(Devil's Road in Japan) to travel to
      Baron. Before the two leaves Palom and Porom wishes to join Cecil, but the
      Elder tells them that their job is done, but they still wish to help Cecil.
      Then the twins finally convince the Elder. The Serpant's road is to the 
      right of the town, before you leave make sure you buy all the Paladin 
      equipment for Cecil. They are quite costly but if you had fought every 
      battle you encountered along the trip you should have had more than enough. 
      Also buy some equipment for Tellah because he is poorly equipped. 
      Afterwards head for the Serpant Road and continue your way to Baron.
    
    
    DE-THRONE THE KING OF BARON     Party's Level: 11
      When you arrive here you will be at the town of Baron, make sure you go to
      the Inn first, but before you go in, check the pot to the right outside of
      the Inn to collect a CURE1 POTION and collect the items in the stored room
      inside the Inn, the switch is the two crossed swords, you should get a 
      CURE1 POTION, HEAL POTION, and a LIFE POTION. Afterwards talk to Yang and 
      the guards around him will attack you.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: GUARD(BARONGUARD in Japan)   HP: 200(each)
    ------------------------------------------------------
      This fight won't take long, but the attacks of the GUARDs can be pretty
      damaging. Also watch out when they try to cast SIZE on one of your party
      members, quickly HEAL that person that is changed by using the HEAL POTION
      or HEAL spell. They can attack very hard, even if Cecil has all of his
      Paladin equipment they can still do about 100+ HP of damage. Try to finish
      them off as quick as possible.
    
      After the battle you will still hear the boss music, this time Yang will
      attack your party.
    
    --------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: KARATE      HP: 3000
    --------------------------------
      This fight can be pretty hard, but with Tellah's newly aquired magic you
      should even things up. Here Yang will always use his KICK command, it will
      do quite a bit of damage to all your party members, have Tellah attack with
      LIT3 and Palom attack with FIRE2, and have Cecil attack with his normal
      attacks and have Porom be your healer. Quickly dispose of Yang so that you
      do not suffer extensive damage.
    
      After the battle Yand will come to his senses, it appears that he was
      under the influnce of Golbez's powerful mind control and he will tell Cecil
      what had happened to Rydia and Edward. He does not know what happened to
      Edward but Rydia was swallowed up by the Leviathan. After the scenario the
      two decide to talk at the inn so that the guards won't hear them. The 
      innkeeper will let you stay for free because you have gotten rid of the 
      guards, in the Japaneese version the innkeeper saids "you kicked some a**!"
      "I like your style" and he will also let you stay for free. In the Inn they
      discuss plans of how to free Cid, they realize that they have to break into
      the castle of Baron but the guards won't let them through. Also Yang has 
      the
      Key of Baron that was given to him while he was commander of the guards. 
      Here with the KEY OF BARON use it to unlock the weapons and armor shops. 
      Yang is poorly equipped so buy him all the neccessary equipment, and you 
      might need to fight a few battles before you go on. After you are done go 
      to the left side of town and you will see a locked door, unlock it and 
      enter through.
    
    RAID ON THE CASTLE OF BARON VIA THE OLD WATER WAY     Party's level: 11
      Once you enter through here the enemies are quite strong, but luckily you
      listened to me and bought all those equipment for Yang right? When you 
      first enter here go to the bottom of the water way and collect three 
      treasure chests which contain a CURE2 POTION, LIFE POTION, and an ETHER1. 
      Now continue on and make your way to the top of the room and enter through 
      the stairway. In this next room you will find a not so hidden path at the
      bottom, go through it to pick up a CURE2 POTION and a LIFE POTION. Continue
      on to the next not so hidden area and make your way to the center of the
      room to recieve a LIFE POTION. Continue onto the next room to the right.
      In this next room you will find an ETHER1 POTION, after you have taken that
      proceed to the next room. In this next room immediately head for the door
      and in there you will find a save room. To the right side is the ANCIENT
      SWORD. Do not bother equipping it on Cecil because its a bit weaker than
      Cecil's current sword. Now proceed outside and onto the moat of the castle
      of Baron. 
    
    
    BATTLE WITH THE KING OF BARON HIMSELF      Party's level: 13
      Here when you are outside keep walking to the left and at the bottom left
      hand side of the castle is the entrance to the castle. Wait a minute, why
      is the Castle of Baron so empty? Were they expecting you? Incase you were
      left hurt during those battles in the old Water Way you can rest in Cecil's
      room in the left tower. If your not hurt from those battles in the Old
      Water Way then proceed right and head towards the King's Throne Room.
      Before you reach the King's throne room Baigan comes to greet you. Then
      Baigan joins your party, that makes a total of six party members! Its too
      good to be true, but now you will stand an excellent chance against the
      King of Baron. Just as you go off to find the King of Baron the twins smell
      a monster, Baigan looks or acts like he is surprised. The twins already 
      know he's a monster and they accuse him of having poor acting skills. Then 
      Baigan shows his true colors.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: BAIGAN, RIGHT ARM, LEFT ARM    HP: 2700(BAIGAN) 250(ARMS)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
      This fight will leave you wounded, so you must make quick moves. At any
      given time BAIGAN will set up a WALL on himself but not his arms. So if
      Palom is at Level 19 have him cast VIRUS on BAIGAN which will do about
      1200 HP of damage. Also when BAIGAN does set up a WALL have Tellah cast
      WALL on any other party member and have your magic user focus their magic
      attack on your party member with the WALL. Don't do it too often because
      the WALL can only bounce back attacks about two or three times. Quickly
      eliminate the ARMs because that is what's causing most of the damage
      against your party. Continue to attack and after a while BAIGAN will lose
      his WALL, have Palom use VIRUS to finish him off, but only when you know
      he has lost his WALL, otherwise it will be a gamble. Or you can have
      Tellah use ICE3, FIRE3, or LIT-3. After the battle you might want to
      return to Cecil's room and heal yourself and continue on towards the
      King's throne room. 
    
      Now head towards the King's Throne room which is on your way. Also before
      you head anywhere go to the right and take the staircase. Then you will be
      outside the castle, continue on to the next staircase, in this next room
      you will notice a hidden door. Use the "A" button to switch open the door,
      the switch is on the left torch and enter through the hidden area and
      collect six treasure chests, the items inside the treasure chests are
      ETHER1 POTION, another ETHER1 POTION,  CURE2 POTION, a LIFE POTION,
      another LIFE POTION, and finally a CURE2 POTION. After that go outside the
      castle and go past under the gate and into the tower. In this room right
      here are two staircases to the right and left and four treasure chests. The
      treasure chests contain a CURE1 POTION, a HEAL POTION, a TENT, and a 
      another CURE1 POTION. The treasure chest on the top of the starcase can be 
      reached if you enter the staircase and then re-enter the staircase you 
      should stop right infront of the treasure chest. Now take the left 
      staircase going down and check the second pot from the left to recieve an 
      ELIXIR. Don't advance any further because a mysterious force will push you 
      back and you will lose some HP if you do go near the mysterious force. Now 
      take the right stiarcase to collect a CURE2 POTION and a LIFE POTION. In 
      the next room is a room full of treasure chests and pots, however there are 
      only three treasure chests that can be accessiable to you because the 
      others are already opened and out of your reach. The treasure chests 
      contain a two TENTs, and an ETHER1 POTION. Also check the pots for another 
      ETHER1 POTION. Afterwards head towards the King's Throne Room(I've said 
      that three times already). Here the King acts like he is happy to see 
      Cecil, but then he dislikes the fact that Cecil is a Paladin. The real king 
      however was killed by the fake king, the fake king now removes his disguise 
      and he is the fiend of water, KAINAZZO.
    
    --------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: KAINAZZO    HP: 4000
    --------------------------------
      This boss fight is extremely easy, if you know what to do. Have Palom use
      his VIRUS magic attack to easily wipe away 1000 of his HP, then have Tellah
      use LIT-3 to cleanly dust off about 3000 of his HP, if he is not done by
      that then just keep attacking him until he's nothing but plankton. 
    
      Here after the battle Cid comes in, and the party introduces themselves to
      Cid besides Cecil because Cecil already knows Cid! Now the party must hurry
      to retrieve the airship. But before they can do so KAINAZZO has already set
      a trap, the doors are locked and the walls are caving in. Here the twins
      turn themselves into Stone and stop the wall from caving in. Tellah tries 
      to break the spell but to no avail, the twins willingly let their lives go 
      to save the rest of the party. Tellah was the one who wanted to go first, 
      but Cid re-groups the party. Meanwhile...
      In the Tower of Zot, Kain plans up a plot to capture the last crystal, they
      will exchange Rosa for the crystal, and Kain will be the messenger, Rosa
      tries to stop Kain, but Kain is too much under the influnce of Golbez's
      powerful mind control. Meanwhile back at the castle of Baron...
      Cid unlocks the hidden entrance to his airship and the Enterprise flies 
      off, then suddenly the Red Wings come but they do not wish to fight this 
      time. Kain delivers a message to Cecil, about trading in Rosa for the 
      Crystal of Earth in Toroia. Now land your airship infront of Baron and 
      return to the King's chambers in the basement below, remember the place 
      with the mysterious force? Its gone now so enter it and the real King of 
      Baron wishes to tell you something. He tells you to go to the Land of 
      Summoned Monsters and return back after your trip, then he leaves. That's 
      for later in the game. Now head back to your airship and fly towards 
      Toroia, which is northwest of Baron. Also Cid starts out at level 20 with 
      788 HP, he can be put in the front, also he can do quite a bit of damage 
      even though he carries a WOODEN HAMMER.
    
    
    ONWARD TO THE CASTLE OF TOROIA AND THE CRYSTAL OF EARTH     Party's level: 14
      Here enter the castle of Toroia. Inside is some music that's pleasant to
      the ear and the beautiful desgin of the castle. For now keep going towards
      the center of the castle and meet the eight Clerics who govern the country
      of Toroia. Talk to the eight Clerics of Toroia and they will give you some
      info. It appears that the Dark Elf has taken the Crystal of Earth and 
      sealed
      the cave with a metallic seal so that weapons of metal will become weak and
      heavy. Now head out and take the right staircase and take the path down
      towards the door. Inside this room you will find three staircases, the 
      middle
      one contains an ETHER1 POTION, the staircase to the left contains a lady
      guarding the door to the secret treasure of Toroia, you don't have
      permission to obtain those treasures yet, so take the right staircase and
      you will be in a room with eight treasure chests. First flip the switch in
      the middle of the room by standing on it, and take the two treasure chests
      on the left which are both TENTS, then take the next two treasure chests
      which are both CURE2 POTIONs, then the next treasure chests which are both
      ETHER1 POTIONs, and then finally the last two treasure chests to the right,
      both contain a RUBYRING, keep the RUBYRINGs for now, even though they are
      a lot weaker than your SILVER RINGS. Now head back to the 1F of the castle
      of Toroia and take the left staircase, and head towards the door on the
      bottom and in this room you will find Edward, this is the first time you
      have met up with Edward since your encounter with the Leviathan. Here Cecil
      tells what has happened with Rosa and Yang tells Edward that Rydia did not
      make it. Here Edward gives you the TWINHARP, which no one but Edward can
      equip. Now leave the castle and head towards north of the castle of Toroia,
      which is the Chocobo's village. Here is home to many Black Chocobos that
      have the ability to fly and land on the forest. Talk to the Black Chocobo
      and head towards the cave which is northeast of the Castle of Toroia and
      souteast of the chocobo's Village.
    
    
    THE DARK ELF'S CAVE LEADS TO THE CRYSTAL OF EARTH     Party's level: 14
      Here in this cave the metallic seal goes into effect, Yang can use his
      Claws and Tellah can go with his Magic, Cecil should have a Bow and Arrow
      equipped. If you want you can just run away from battles in this area until
      you face off against the Dark Elf. Now continue on to the wooden bridge,
      here take the right path to collect the CURE2 POTION and continue on keep
      going until you find the next ladder, also pick up the treasure chest to 
      the
      left to collect a HEAL POTION and enter through the ladder. In this next
      room take the right path and collect the ETHER1 POTION, now continue onto
      the the northeast corner of the room to find a white door, enter it and in
      the room are two treasure chests, they are the ETHER1 POTION and 500 GOLD.
      Now head to the left and enter the ladder, in this next area you will see a
      door to the left which is a save room, go ahead and save your game and heal
      your wounds if neccessary. Now keep going and in the room below is a LIFE
      POTION, a CURE3 POTION, and a CURE2 POTION. Now head out and continue onto
      the left past the bridge, take the path in the middle and enter through the
      door. Here a treasure chest is straight above you which is a CHARM claw for
      Yang, equip it and move onto the left. In this next room which is B4F, take
      the bridge to the left, when you reach an area with a bunch of candles take
      the right path across the bridge and you will be gievn yet another chance
      to save. Save your game and head out now head to the door, but make sure
      you go around and pick up an ETHER2 POTION. In this next room the music
      changes, its the Crystal room and inside it is the DARK ELF. Here he will
      not let you take the crystal of Earth and a fight will start.
    
    -----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: DARK ELF       HP: 3000
    -----------------------------------
    Just lose this fight and save your energy. 
    
      Afterwards the party is weak and if Cecil cannot use his weapons then he
      cannot defeat the DARK ELF. Meanwhile Edward wishes to help out the party,
      so he plays his harp which is painful to the ear of the DARK ELF and it
      lowers the DARK ELF's metallic seal. Here take this chance to equip
      yourself with all your metallic gear.
    
    -----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: DARK ELF       HP: 3000
    -----------------------------------
      Just keep pounding on this guy, until he is gone. After you lose him
      about 1500 HP of damage he will change form. Tellah's magic is basically
      useless, but Cecil using his LEGEND sword will do about 700+ damage
      against him. Try too keep your party's HP above 250 and have Tellah be 
      your healer.
    
      Afterwards the DARK ELF dies, so take the Crystal of Earth and return
      to Toroia. To make a short cut have Tellah use his WARP magic once he is
      outside the Crystal Room. Now head back to the center of the Castle of
      Toroia where the Clerics are. Inside the Clerics greet you, then suddenly
      Kain tells you to take the Crystal to his airship and he will show him
      where Rosa is. Beofre you leave go to the room where the lady was guarding
      the treasure earlier, now the treasure of Toroia is now yours! Inside are
      twenty treasure chests which contain a CURE2 POTION, HEAL POTION, ETHER1
      POTION, ETHER2 POTION, ELIXIR, 1000 GOLD, a GREATBOW, 10 FIRE ARROWS,
      another set of 10 FIRE ARROWS, a set of 10 LIT ARROWS, a set of 10 ICE
      ARROWS, another set of 10 ICE ARROWS, another stash of a 1000 GOLD, another
      ELIXIR, another ETHER2 POTION, another ETHER1 POTION, another HEAL POTION,
      and another CURE2 POTION. Now head back to Edward's room, and a short
      scenario will take place, Tellah now respects Edward and will avenge
      Anna's death and also avenge Edward's injury. Now leave Toroia and head
      for your airship and make sure you save your game before you enter you
      airship.
    
    
    ROSA HERE WE COME!     Party's level: 16
      Now immediately when you board your airship Kain tells you to follow his
      airship after Cecil has shown him the Crystal of Earth. From here you
      will never bea ble to enter this tower again so make sure you collect
      everything you find and watch for the monsters here, they can get pretty
      tough. Now make your way towards the top left corner of the room and
      collect the FIRE armor and continue on to floor 2. In this next room is
      only one treasure chest which contains a FIRE sword. It is guarded by a
      FLAMEDOG, so make absolutely sure Cecil did not equip the FIRE ARMOR or he
      will get seriously burned. Try not to fight many battles here because
      enemies can get quite tough. After you have collected the FIRE sword
      continue onto the next floor. In this room the door to the next room is
      directly above you so make your way around, and there are no treasure
      chests in here. Now in this next room there are three doors in the middle
      and another door to the right. Here take the first door to the right in
      the middle and pick up the WIZARD robe, equip it on Tellah, but remember
      to de-equip it off of him later. In the middle of the middle rooms is a
      EARTH hammer for Cid, equip it on Cid and don't worry about the treasure
      chest above it. Now enter the next room to the left and to the right is
      the treasure chest above the one with the HAMMER. Inside you will find a
      POISON claw for Yang, equip it and continue on to the left. At the bottom
      here you will see a treasure chest, open it to pick up a FIRE shield for
      Cecil and return back to the room you were in before. In this room take
      the room all the way to the right. Enter the door and you will be back at
      the fifth floor again, before you enter the room in the middle make sure
      you save it in the room before it, heal your wounds and continue on. Here
      before you make it to the next room the Magus sisters will stop you.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: MAGUS SISTERS         HP: 2500(short), 2000(fat), 1400(tall)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      This fight is fairly easy. First attack the Fat one(I forgot to type the
      names down as I fought them so sorry if the bosses are based on description
      and not on name. They will use their DELTA attack which is a pretty lame
      attack. The skinny tall one will use a WALL on the fat one, while the
      short one will use either FIRE2, ICE2, or LIT-2 to reflect off of the fat
      one. Have Tellah attack either one with VIRUS besides the Fat one because
      she has a WALL on. Have Cid use his EARTH hammer as an item repeatedly to
      do about 240 damage to all three sisters(don't worry you can use this over
      and over again), have Yang and Cecil attack as normal. Afterwards the Magus
      sisters shall be defeated.
    
      Here the sisters will fade away, continue onto the next room. In this next
      room you will see Kain and Golbez. Cecil hands over the crystal to Golbez 
      but he will not let them through to Rosa. Tellah dislikes the fact and 
      blurs out at him, Golbez has no business with Tellah, but Tellah does.
    
    ----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: GOLBEZ       HP: 10000
    ----------------------------------
      This boss fight, Tellah fights alone. If you notice Golbez in this battle
      scene looks a lot like EXDEATH from FF5, but I'm not going to get into it.
      Here Tellah fights automatically with VIRUS, FIRE3, LIT-3, and ICE3. All
      those spells have very little effect on Golbez, then Tellah decides to use
      METEO, but how, he doesn't even have enough MP! Tellah turns his HP into MP
      and casts METEO, it knocks Golbez out of submission.
    
      Here Tellah is lying on the floor. Golbez escapes and calls Kain, but Kain
      is unconsious, the METEO spell had broken Golbez's link over Kain and 
      Golbez escapes alone. Before Golbez leaves Cecil wants to end his evil life 
      right now, but Golbez shocks him away with lightning. Cecil questions why 
      doesn't he finish him off, but Golbez seems to question who Cecil is. Here 
      they go over to Tellah who is critically wounded. Tellah blames this on 
      himself because of his own hatred, he slowly dies and the party gives their 
      final respect and Cecil will promise to avenge Anna and Tellah(I really 
      hate this Golbez guy, don't you?). Now go over to Kain, the door behind 
      them is locked. When Kain wakes up he realizes that Rosa is in danger and 
      they quicly dash into the next room and save Rosa in time just before the 
      Iron Ball drops on Rosa. Here Kain puts his head down in disgust because he 
      nearly let Rosa get killed, and its pretty funny when you here Cid's
      remarks! Here Kain admits that he just wanted to be with Rosa and asks
      both Cecil and Rosa for their forgiveness, then Cid quickly tells them to
      leave now, then Cecil pulls together Kain and they leave. But just about
      as they were to leave the fiend of air comes through with an evil laughter
      that scrimishes across the hears of the party. Valvalis said she should 
      have gotten rid of Kain, but she will have to defeat the entire party to do 
      that.
    
    --------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: VALVALIS          HP: 6000
    --------------------------------------
      This boss fight is pretty hard and will drain alot out of your party. When
      she turns into a whirlwind, have Kain jump to stop her spin. Also she will
      use WEAK quite often and will use RAY directly after WEAK as well, so make
      sure you heal your party quickly and cure them if need. Also Rosa is not
      equipped with any weapons so equip her with a BOW and ARROW if you have 
      some and have her attack when the party is still healthy. Have Cecil 
      constantly attack, and also Yang and Cid attack as well. Keep this up and 
      you should be able to defeat her.
    
      Here Valvalis will tell you that the strongest of the four elements still
      exist. Before she leaves to the afterworld she will destroy the tower, but
      Rosa will tell the party to hold on, as she casts the spell of EXIT. Then
      the party arrives at Cecil's bedroom in Baron. Here Kain tells the party
      about the Crystals, Golbez has all four crystals and the world is doomed
      right? Wrong. Here Kain tells the party of the other four crystals known as
      the Dark Crystals. So Golbez has only gathered half the crystals and the
      hidden side of the Earth is the underground. Kain also tells them that when
      all the crystals of both the Earth and Underground are gathered, the way to
      the moon opens. Here Kain gives them the Magma key, but they don't know
      where to throw the key in. Then Cid's music comes on and tells them that
      they will find the place to throw the Magma key in not time with the help
      of the Enterprise. But I thought it was lost in the Tower of Zot, but never
      question Cid's genius, the Enterprise flew back to Baron by remote control.
      Here Cecil wonders why Golbez didn't finish off Cecil, but he tells the
      party its nothing and they go to sleep. Here you can visit back to where
      Palom and Porom was stoned, if you click the "A" button you will see your
      menu screen pop up. But you are not suppose to de-stone them nor can
      you ever. Now head outside and make it to your airship. Before you go start
      looking for the place, you can visit the Town of Mist again, if not then
      head for the town of Agart.
    
    
    
    WAY TO THE UNDERWORLD     Party's level: 18
      Here this place is Agart, a peaceful nation that will talk alot about
      Dwarves. Here in this town a treasure chest is hidden in the green grassy
      area with a CURE2 POTION. You really do not need to buy weapons because 
      most of the equipment you have is better than the stuff they sell, now head
      towards the bottomless well, the guy infront was talking to you about and
      throw in the MAGMA key, which will cause an earthquake that will split the
      mountain. Enter the mountain with your airship.
    
    =============================================================================
    =============================End of The World Above==========================
    =============================================================================
    
    YOUR NEXT JOURNEY BEGINS UNDERGROUND      Party's level: 18
      Here when you enter the mountain the ship is suddenly taken down by shots
      from the Red Wings. This time the Red Wings are not after Cecil. It seems
      like a War is going on between some tanks and the Red Wings. The Enterprise
      trys to dodge the firepower but a couple shots hit the Enterprise and they
      fall down. Here Cecil has suffered only minor injuries but the Enterprise
      is serverely damaged. The enterprise lands in front of giant castle. Here
      save your game and enter through. Also I would like to mention that
      congratulations! You have achieved half-way through the game, and the other
      half is tougher than most battles you have encountered.
    
    
    WHAT PLOT IS GOLBEZ UP TO THIS TIME?      Party's level: 18
      Here enter the castle and go directly in the middle. The conversation
      will automatically start. Here they introduce themselves and Cecil asks
      for the cyrstal but apparently two out of four were taken from Golbez.
      However the crystal in his castle is still safe. Here the King asks the
      party to help support them with their airship but the Enterprise is badly
      damage and can't even fly over magma. Here Cid leaves the party and will
      wrap the ship in Mystic Silver. The party say there goodbyes, but suddenly
      Yang's incredible instincts point out that he feels that someone is
      evesdropping on the party. The party and the King's men look but nobody
      is there. Then the King opens the door to the Crystal room and when the
      party enters they see wierd dolls jumping around and also the door behind
      them is locked.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: CAL & BRENA, CALBRENA    HP: CAL(800) BRENA(400) CALBRENA(3000)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
      This boss fight is pretty tough so don't be surprised that you find
      yourselves losing early on. First have Cecil attack the CALs, have Kain
      JUMP the CALs, have Yang perform his KICK, and have Rosa AIM at the
      BRENAs. Continue to do this until they are all gone. However if by any
      chance you leave one of them standing they can still form into CALBRENA,
      who's attacks are very powerful and has alot of HP. If this happens hit
      CALBRENA with your best attacks, also if you do not destroy CLABRENA in
      time before she forms back into the 6 dolls, that means you will have to
      face the 6 dolls all over again despite the fact that you may of destroy
      5 out of the 6 dolls earlier. I really can't offer much strategy because
      I've barely won this battle. 
    
      After the battle Golbez appears. He tells you why is he is after the
      crystals. Apparently with all eight crystals in his hand he will
      re-activate the Tower of Bab-il and open a path to the moon. Legends says
      that the Moon possesses limitless power. Here Golbez has only one more
      crystal to collect after he takes this one. Here a battle will start
      with Golbez.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: GOLBEZ  and SHADOW       HP: 800(SHADOW) 2800(GOLBEZ)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
      Here the party's attacks continously but all their attacks miss, then
      suddenly he puts a HOLD GAS on the entire party which paralyzes them.
      Here the battle seems hopeless. Here the party goes down by SHADOW's
      attacks one by one, until Cecil goes, but suddenly the Mist Dragon Cecil
      and Kain had destroyed earlier comes and blows them with a Mist that
      destroys the Shadow Dragon.  Here an unknown mysterious voice heals the
      party and they can move now. Suddenly its Rydia! She's back and this
      time with more powers than she left with! She has 5 new summons and much
      more new Black magic attacks, this time GOLBEZ is going down! Here just
      have Cecil attack and have Rydia cast any one of her summons. After that
      Golbez will wall like a rotten cookie.
    
      Here Rydia tells the party that Leviatan had swallowed her up and took
      her to the Land of Summoned Monsters, where all Summoned Monsters live.
      There time flows much quicker and Rydia's appearance is much more adult
      like. Here Golbez's hand takes the Crystal and the party reappears at
      the King's room. Here the party knows that the last Crystal is at the
      Sealed Cave to the south. The King has devised of a plan to lure the
      Tower of Bab-il's fire power to the tanks so the party can sneak in and
      take the crystals. Here the King tells you that the exit to the Tower of
      Bab-il is at the bottom of this castle. Before you go anywhere make sure
      you explore this castle, its pretty big and has some nifty items. Also
      right after the King finishes talking to you have Rydia Warp and you will
      be in the Crystal room, even though you saw Golbez take the crystal the
      crystal is still there for some strange reason. 
    
    
    EXPLORATION OF THE DWARVE CASTLE      Party's level: 18
      Here exit out of the King's room and take the left staircase. Here you
      will be at the inn, check the pot next to the counter to recieve 1000
      GOLD. From here take the left staircase and you will be in a room with
      a door at the bottom and a staircase in the middle. Take the staircase
      and you will see a room full of pots and a Dwarve at the top, here he
      will let you take the treasures in the tower. Also there is nothing in
      the pots so continue on. In this room take the left side and a treasure
      chest will give you a CURE2 POTION, now there is a hidden passage
      leading to the treasure chest at the bottom of the CURE2 POTION, go
      through that way to collect a BLACK BELT robe. Now go around and to the
      right to pick up an ETHER1 POTION. Also a Namingway is here incase you
      hate the names of your party members. Now to the right of the Namingway
      is yet another hidden passage that leads to the top treasure chest which
      is an ELIXIR. Now head back to the entrance of the left tower and this
      time go outside. Here you will see a few Dwarves outside, talk to them
      if you like and continue onto the right tower. In here you will see two
      staircases. First take the treasure chest which is a DWARF AXE, and now
      take the staircase in the middle. Here in this next room the guard will
      allow you to take the other treasures and also here are a bunch of pots,
      and there is absolutely nothing in these pots. Here in this next room take
      the treasure chest to the top and open it to recieve the STRENGTH ring. Now
      to the right of the treasure chest is another hidden passage, go through it
      and take the treasure chest to the right to pick up an ETHER2 POTION. Now
      pick up the treasure chest at the bottom which is an ELIXIR and pick up
      the final treasure chest which is an ETHER1 POTION. Now return to the
      entrance of the tower and take the right staircase and you will be in the
      Weapons and Armor shop now. You can go to the middle of the room if you
      want but its not neccessary because all it is is a Dwarf dancing. Here
      buy three RUNE rings for Rosa, Yang, and Rydia, and also a WIZARD hat for
      Rydia. Don't bother to buy any Fire equipment here because they won't
      help much in the underworld. Now you can go to the stairs in the top left
      hand corner if you want to dump off some of your items to the fat Chocobo.
      Also if you don't have any carrots there are three carrots to the right of
      the Fat Chocobo in the pots. Also in this room talk to the Dwarf in front
      of the Liquor Shelf and he will open the door for you to the bottom half
      of the castle. Now you will be in the basement, to the right side of the
      basement is a CABIN, a CABIN, and yet another CABIN. Now go to the left,
      in this room is the Dwarf base, to the very left is a Recovery Pot, so 
      you can heal your wounds. Now leave the castle and save your game. 
    
    
    RAID ON THE TOWER OF BAB-IL      Party's level: 18
      From outside here go all the way northwest and you will find tanks shooting
      at the Tower of Bab-il, so while they distract the Tower enter through.
      Now when you enter take the left and recieve 10 ICE ARROWs and another set
      of ICE ARROWs. Now take the right path of the room and pick up an ETHER1
      POTION and enter the middle of the room. Now in this next room pick up the
      BANDANA to the left and continue down. Take the very next door you see,
      inside is a treasure chest inside is an ALERT, each time you attack it when
      a monster is not present it will call another monster. After you defeat him
      equip the BLIZZARD SPEAR and continue on. Now take the right door and
      inside is another treasure chest, and also another battle with an ALERT.
      After you win the battle you will recieve a ICE BRAND sword, equip it and
      move on. In this next room take the treasure chest to the left and pick up
      a CATCLAW for Yang. From here to the right is a CURE2 POTION, after you
      have picked that up go to the right door in the room and also pick up the
      LIFE POTION. Here in this room is another LIFE POTION and an ARCHER BOW,
      equip the Bow and head back into the room. Now head to the left door. In
      this room go to the left and enter a save point, save your game and
      continue onto the right side of this room. Now enter the room to the
      bottom, you will have to fight an ALERT here, but win the battle to pick
      up an ICE SHIELD. The room to the right has nothing inside so go to the
      room at the top to fight another ALERT, this time if you win you recieve
      an ICE SHIELD. Equip both ICE equipment on and continue through to the top
      left. Now in this next room go get the treasure chest to the right
      contains 2,000 GOLD. Now continue to the right, but ignore the room in
      the middle because its locked. Also pick up a CURE2 POTION on the way and
      continue upwards into the next room. Here just go to the door on the left.
      In this next room take the right side and into a door to find a SAVE
      POINT, save your game and continue on. Also pick up an ETHER2 POTION right
      before the next room. Here just continue on and make it to the left side
      of the room. Here you will see Dr. Lugae and Rubicant having a 
      conversation. Here after Dr. Lugae has transported Rubicant out he is 
      excited that he is the only one here. Rydia calls him a  "Wierd Guy...!" 
      and then finally Dr.Lugae notices them. Here Kain makes a few smart remarks 
      and Dr. Lugae calls his robot BALNAB.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: DR. LUGAE, BLANAB          HP: 3000(DR.LUGAE) 2700(BALNAB)
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Here in this battle start things off with Cecil attacking Dr. Lugae and
      have Kain Jump Dr. Lugae, also have Rosa aim at Dr. Lugae as well as Yang
      attack Dr. Lugae. For Rydia have her summon INDRA. Keep pounding on Dr.
      Lugae until he is gone so that he doesn't constantly heal BALNAB. At first
      BALNAB will attack Dr. Lugae, but then he will attack you so his hit is
      actually a freebie. This fight isn't too tough, but if you do not kill
      BALNAB in time before he explodes, then most likely one of your characters
      will die because the EXPLODE takes off loads of damage, or depending on
      how much HP he has left will tell how much damage he will inflict.
    
      After this battle Dr. Lugae still stands, but this time he has a trick
      up his sleeve.
    
    ----------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: DR. LUGAE                 HP: 5000
    ----------------------------------------------
      This fight is a little tougher than the last so take some extra
      precautions. First take a few swings at him before he turns into a
      skeleton. Have Rosa AIM and heal if neccessary. Have Rydia cast INDRA or
      JINN, have Kain JUMP and have both Yang and Cecil attack. Watch out for
      the LASER attack, it'll most likely kill off one of your party members,
      so revive them also watch out for the GAS, it will paralyze your party
      member, but you can wait and have DR. LUGAE heal you or heal the party
      member yourself. Afterwards you should be able to win and collect
      the TOWER key.
    
      After the battle the Super Cannon is almosted charged up so head back to
      the middle room that was locked earlier. Here when you enter this room
      the Super Cannon is about to fire, but Cecil interrupts their play and
      the three DARK IMPs attack them.
    
    ------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: Three DARK IMPs         HP: 180 each
    ------------------------------------------------
      This fight is basically a joke, yet they give you a lofty amount
      of expierience points.
    
      Here the DARK IMPs make their final move by detonating the Super Cannon.
      Here Yang decides to stop the Super Cannon from exploding, but Yang
      knocks them out of the room. Here Yang sacrifices himself and the Super
      Cannon explodes. Now exit out of the Tower. Before the party leaves
      Golbez interrupts them and knocks out the bridge and the party falls
      below. Luckily Cid is back from his trip, and they tell Cid about Yang.
      Suddenly the Red Wings approach them, they try to out manuver the Red
      Wings, but somehow the Red Wings were re-modified, and without Cid! Here
      the party can't shake off the Red Wings and Cid says his last goodbyes
      before he denonates the bomb. Its a shame too see a good friend go off
      like that, so that's 6 six people lost at the hands of Golbez. Its time
      we show Golbez how the party feels. Before Cid left he told the party to
      head towards Baron to ask his workers for help.
    
    
    ONWARD TOWARDS BARON!      Party's level: 21
      First when you enter here make your way to the right side of the castle
      and you will see two people standing outside below the right tower. Talk
      to them and Cid's crew has already been informed to attach a hook to the
      Enterprise. After the crew is done now that party can hook and attach the
      Hovercraft. To attach the Hovercraft, simply go over it and press the "A"
      button. Here the crew tells you that you can reach the Cave of Eblan near
      the Tower of Bab-il. So remember where you last left your Hovercraft? Yes
      you got it, near Mt. Hobs directly northeast of Baron. Now go southwest of
      Baron and land your Hovercraft and go to the Cave of Eblan just under the
      Tower of Bab-il. 
    
    
    WHAT LIES AHEAD IN THESE CAVES?     Party's level: 21
      From here go to the right and pick up a SHURIKEN dart. If you so happen
      not to see any hidden passages then try adjusting your television's
      brightness or contrast. Also to the right and pick up a HEAL POTION and
      continue on to the bottom of the cave. To the bottom right of the cave
      is 1200 GOLD, after that go to the next room. In this area monsters will
      not attack you, and the people of Eblan are now living in the caves, take
      a look around and buy some new equipment. You can buy an extra ICE armor
      and also an extra ICE shield for Kain if you like, but since he is jumping
      most of the time I don't think that would be neccessary. Also I would
      consider buying a BLACK gown for Rydia because it suits her better than
      her current equipment. The weapons shop is a complete waste of time
      because you already have the equipment they are selling. So continue on
      to the bottom left room. Here you will get information that the Ninjas
      of Eblan are defeated rather easily and also check the pots at the end
      of the nursing room to pick up a CURE1 POTION and also the pot near the
      entrance of the nursing room to pick up another CURE1 POTION. After that's
      all done and done head out and onto the next area. In this next area is the
      Pass to Bab-il. To the right is an ETHER1 POTION, after that go to the top
      to find a TENT and a wounded guard, he will tell you that the Prince has
      went alone. Below the downed guard is a CURE2 POTION and above is a CURE3
      POTION. Continue onto the next room and you will find another downed guard.
      To the right of this room is another SHURIKEN dart. Continue and in this
      room through the hidden passage is two treasure chests containing two
      ELIXIRs. The other treasure chests contain a CABIN, a CURE2 POTION, and
      another CURE2 POTION. Here in this room you will see another downed guard,
      to the bottom is 800 GOLD and to the right are three treasure chests which
      contain a a LIFE POTION, another LIFE POTION, and 850 GOLD. Continue
      onwards to the top and onto the next room. Here in this next room is a save
      point, you might want to save before collecting the treasure chest to the
      right. If you do decide to pick up the treasure chest, it contains a DRAIN
      sword for Cecil, but you must defeat two STALEMANs to obtained it. After
      you have saved your game exit out of the save room and go to the top, but
      before you do pick up the LIFE POTION to the left side. When you reach the
      top you will see a mysterious Ninja battling the almighty Rubicant. Here
      you will know that the man's name is Edge. Here at first all looks well,
      but then Edge casts FLAME which is Rubicant's strength and suddenly
      Rubicant uses GLARE a powerful attack that knocks out Edge. After the
      battle Rubicant tells him he is strong but not strong enough and tells
      him to fight him once he has become strong enough. Here the party talks to
      Edge and tells them that they are on the same side. Edge is still hot
      headed and Rydia comes out crying, telling him that she has lost everybody
      in this epic war. Here Rosa uses CURE2 on Edge and he thanks her for it
      with a sassy remark of course. Before you proceed to the next room pick
      up an ETHER2 POTION before you go. Here in this next room is the other
      side of the Tower of Bab-il. The party wonders how they will get in, but
      Edge is a ninja remember? He easily slips by the wall. In this 1F of the
      Tower make sure to pick up a CURE3 POTION at the top, after that go around
      and find your way to the next door, but before you enter the door pick up
      another CURE3 POTION to the right. In this next room is a treasure chest
      in the middle. Pick it up to recieve an OGRE axe, but you must fight for
      it, against four MAD OGREs that is! After that continue on to the next
      room. Here in this next room to the right is 2000 GOLD, after you have
      picked that up continue into the next room. Here proceed to the right, and
      along the way pick up the treasure chest to obtain a MIDDLE blade for Edge
      and proceed to the left and onto the next room. In this room ignore the
      orb in the middle and proceed to the right of the room and enter the first
      door. Inside this room is a save spot, heal your wounds and save and
      continue on to the right room. Here just go to the room on the left. When
      you enter here you will see a center room, which loks alot like the Super
      Cannon room, but its not the Super Cannon room this time. Before you enter
      the room Edge sees his parents, but they are not themselves.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: K.EBLAN, Q.EBLAN       HP: 32,000(K.EBLAN) 30,000(Q.EBLAN)
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
      In this battle you don't have to do anything. Keep your party healed and
      the King and Queen of Eblan will come to their senses. Here in this battle
      both Queen Eblan and King Eblan tell them that they are no longer human.
      They say their final farewells and they die themselves.
    
      Here Rubicant will appear and Edge is fustrated with him, Rubicant tells
      him that it was Dr. Lugae that turned his parents into monsters and he
      apologizes for it. He tells them that he fights fair and is unlike the
      other Fiend of Elements. Here Edge releases his Rage and learns FLOOD and
      BLITZ. Before you fight Rubicant you can pick up the 82,000 GOLD treasure
      chest to the left if you want or after the battle and make sure you do not
      heal yourselves. Rubicant will autmoactically heal your wounds for you.
      When you are prepared talk to Rubicant to start the fight.
    
    --------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: RUBICANT        HP: 24,000
    --------------------------------------
      This boss fight isn't too tough. Have Kain JUMP which causes almost 4,000
      HP of damage with each hit and have Cecil attack which causes about 2,300
      HP of damage each hit. Don't bother trying to hit him with ICE spells
      because if you get your timing wrong and he closes his cape that means you
      will heal him instead. Have Rosa AIM with her ICE arrows and have Edge
      dart with his SHURIKENs, and also have Rydia use VIRUS. Now continue and
      keep pounding on him with the same pattern and he should be gone.
    
      Here Rubicant admores them because weak people can join forces. Here the
      Chamberlain and his troops come to help Edge out, but Rubicant is already
      defeated. The party tell Edge about Golbez, and they hurry off into the
      Crystal room. Before they can obtain the crystals they fall into a pitfall
      dropping them to the floor below. Here in this next area pick up a CURE2
      POTION at the top and move on. In this next room just proceed to the top.
      Here you will be on the 6F continue down and to the right is a CURE2
      POTION. Here in this next room is an Airship. Edge decides to take it, but
      not without Rydia's concerns and Rosa's concerns. Edge tells them not to
      worry and he calls the new airship, the Falcon(that's how they spell it in
      the game). The party leaves the Tower, but the airship cannot travel
      through Magma. For now head back to the Castle of Dwarves.
    
    
    WHAT HELP CAN THE KING OFFER THIS TIME?     Party's level: 19-24
      Here just proceed to the center of the castle. Here the party talks to
      the King and they believe that Golbez is trying to force open the Sealed
      Cave. Here the King tells Luca to give the party they Key to the last
      crystal before he can take it away. But the ship can't travel through Magma
      so how can they get to the Sealed Cave? Well for now head to the nursing
      room to the left of the entrance to the Dwarves' Base. Inside here you will
      find Cid. Here Edge's lousy mouth goes off on Cid. Here the party tells
      Cid that they have defeated the all the Four Fiends, but the Airhsip
      cannot travel through Magma. Even though Cid is injured he jumps at the
      chance to help his party. After the long remodeling of the airship Cid is
      back in his bed, but then suddenly he does not speak, but then the party
      realizes that he is just sleeping. Now afterwards head towards the Sealed
      Cave southwest of the Dwarf Castle, it looks like a square shape in the
      middle of rocks.
    
    
    DEFEND THE LAST CRYSTAL BEFORE GOLBEZ OBTAINS IT!      Party's level: 19-24
      From here just unlock the door and proceed to the first floor. Proceed
      down and pick up a LIFE POTION and enter the door above, but watch out,
      every door in here is a TRAP DOOR. He will often take out a party member,
      so make sure you heal at the end of battle. In this room, you will find an
      ETHER1 POTION and a LONG sword for Edge. Now get out of this room and
      proceed to the left, Here you will see another Door which is yet another
      TRAP DOOR. Defeat and move on through. In this room pick up a CURE2 POTION
      and proceed to the 2nd door from the left, because the first door doesn't
      have anything also make sure to pick up an ETHER2(or was it one?) to the
      treasure chest to the left. Now enter the door and defeat the TRAP DOOR,
      inside is absolutely nothing, but the TRAP DOOR did give you a lofty 
      amount of expierience right? Well here just continue to the ladder below.
      Here in this next area proceed down through the rope walkway and pick up
      a LIFE POTION and continue on to pick up another LIFE POTION. Now proceed
      to the second door from the right because the 1st door has absolutely
      nothing. In the second door defeat the TRAP DOOR and inside is a LIGHT
      sword, equip it on Cecil and continue on to the 3rd door. In this room is
      a NINJA dart, an ELIXIR, and 5,000 GOLD. Here ignore the 3rd door, unless
      you want to gain some levels, and go to the fourth door. Defeat the TRAP
      DOOR and proceed inside and in here is a save point, save your game and
      heal your wounds and proceed to the fifth door. Defeat the TRAP DOOR and
      inside you will find gear for Edge which are a NINJA helmet and a LONG
      sword. Afterwards proceed down and fight yet another TRAP DOOR. Defeat and
      enter through the room. In this room pick up an ETHER1 POTION and continue
      onto the left ladder. In this next room is a CURE2 POTION and a LIFE
      POTION, ignore the door to the left because inside has nothing, unless you
      want to fight a TRAP DOOR for some high expierience points.  Here in this
      room go to the right and pick a LIFE POTION and enter through the door if
      you want to earn some expierience because there is nothing inside the
      room. Now continue to the middle of the room and take the rope ladder
      going down. From here go to the right and defeat the TRAP DOOR and enter
      through. In this room contains an ETHER2 POTION and a CURE3 POTION. Now
      head out and go towards the left and take the ladder into the next room.
      Here in this room is a save point, save your game again and heal your
      wounds and proceed down. From here just ignore the rope ladders to the
      sides and make your way around to the middle and proceed to the center
      room. In here you should be on B5F, now make your way to the center of the
      room and pick up the crystal. Now leave the crystal room and make your way
      outside. Here before the party leaves a trap has been set.
    
    ---------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: EVILWALL         HP: 20,000
    ---------------------------------------
      This boss fight will not be easy. First have Cecil attack regularly, have
      Kain JUMP the EVILWALL, have Rosa AIM and heal if neccessary, have Edge
      dart his NINJA darts he picked up earlier and then have him attack
      regularly and have Rydia cast VIRUS. If the EVILWALL crushes you just
      bring back that party member with LIFE1 don't bother healing him again.
      Keep up this pattern until he's gone.
    
      After the battle have the party leave this floor and in the next floor
      have Rydia use WARP and continue to WARP until she reaches the entrance to
      the Sealed Cave. Here before you leave Golbez's presence is here and he
      takes control of Kain again, the party tries to stop him but to no avail.
      Kain leaves with the crystal and the party is helpless to try and stop him.
      For now there are three things you can do:
    
      a) Return to the Dwarf Castle
      b) Proceed to the Land of Summoned Monsters
      c) Proceed to the Sylph Cave
      
      NOTE: If you need help with the other two events(b,c) then refer to the
            bottom of this FFIV walkthrough in the Side Areas section for
            some help.
      Its your choice and choice b and c are completely optional in the game. But
      if you are following this walkthrough go to the Dwarf Castle.
      After this tough fight have Rosa EXIT. Now head northwest and towards a
      cave, but before you enter inside heal your wounds and save your game.
    
    
    YOU'VE HELPED TOO MUCH CID!     Party's level: 22-27
      Here he informs of King Giott that all the crystals have been taken.
      Here the King tels them of a Legend that the Big Whale. The party needs
      to make it back to Mysidia, but the way to the overworld is blocked, but
      Cid once again proves them wrong. In the middle of the remodeling of the
      airship Cid collapses and they take him back to the nursing room.
      Afterwards head out of the Dwarf Castle and onto your airship, remember
      where Cid blew up that bomb? Well now go to that spot and press A, a new
      way will open for you. When you reach outside there are 4 things to do:
    
      a) Head for Mysidia like the King told you to.
      b) Head for the basement of Baron.
      c) Head to the island near Silvera.
      d) Go to the Castle of Fabul and talk to Yang's wife.
    
      NOTE: If you need help on the other three events(b,c,d) go to the bottom
            portion of the FFIV walkthrough in the Side Areas section.
      It doesn't matter which area you go to, but if you are following this
      walkthrough go to the town of Mysidia. But first attach your Hovercraft
      to the Enterprise. 
    
    
    THE LEGEND THEY SPEAK OF IS TRUE!       Party's level: 22-27
      Here the Elder comes to you and tells you to hurry and come to the
      tower of wishes. Then you see the Mysidian Legend again. Here the Elder
      and a bunch of Black and White mages wishes for the Legend of the Big
      Whale. Then suddenly their wish has come true. The ship of light from
      the moon has come through the oceans of Mysidia. While the Elder was
      wishing he heard a voice call from the moon.
    
    =============================================================================
    =============================End of The Underworld===========================
    =============================================================================
    
    A TRIP TO THE MOON      Party's level: 22-27
      Now when your in the Big Whale talk to the Crystal and it will take you
      to the moon. Here you can take a look into outer space. When you are on
      the moon make a landing just horthwest of the giant Crystal palace. Here
      you will have to walk your way to the Crystal palace. So take the cave to
      the left. When you are in this cave take the right and inside the treasure
      chest are 2 JUCLYOTE and 2 PROCLYOTE. Defeat them to obtain an ELIXIR. Now
      to the top right of this room is a CURE2 POTION and a HEAL POTION. After
      you have picked that up exit out through the top. Now when you are outside
      go southeast into another cave which is the LUNAR PATH. In here is
      basically nothing. When you reach outside again all you have to do is make
      your way to the Crystal Palace. 
    
    
    A SHOCKING TRUTH UNCOVERED      Party's level: 24-29
      In this palace and to the left is an HP and Status recovery spot and to
      the left is an MP recovery spot. Step on them if you are badly injured.
      Now head towards the center of the Crystal Palace. Here an unknown voice
      speaks to you. Then suddenly he appears on the chair of the crystal
      palace. He tells you his name which is FuSoya the guardian of the
      Lunarians' slumber. He tells you that about 1000 years ago that the
      planet between Jupiter and Mars was about to be destroyed, but after the
      destruction of the planet the people who have survived the calamity headed
      for the Blue Planet also known as Earth. But the people knew that the
      people of Earth was still in the middle of evolution so they had created
      a second moon so they could sleep. A person named Zemus wanted to control
      the Earth but he wouldn't listen. It appears that an even stronger foe
      is controlling Golbez! He needs the crystals of Earth to awaken the Giant
      of Bab-il to destroy those living on Earth. Then Cecil asks about the
      Blue Whale, it was actually FuSoya's brother Kluya that had made the Big
      Whale so that he can travel to the Blue Planet. He taught the people of
      Earth how to build airships and also the infamous Serpant Road. Kluya 
      fell in love with a human woman and gave birth to two children. One of
      them is Cecil. Then Cecil realizes that the person who was talking to
      him was the spirit of his father. He gave Cecil the power to thwart the
      machination of Zemus. Then the party must hurry to the Tower of Bab-il.
      But how will the party get through its shielded, but FuSoya can break 
      through. Here FuSoya joins your party now head back to the Big Whale, but
      I highly reccommend that you go to Bahamut's cave first, but since its
      optional, you don't need to bother. Bahamut's cave is located on the
      on the middle cave that has a giant ring around a rock in the middle.
      Also FuSoya starts out at level 50 with 1900 HP, but his defense is very
      weak so keep him in the back. Also he knows all the Black and White
      magics as well.
    
    
    THE GIANT OF BAB-IL ACTIVATED?      Party's level: 24-29
      When you arrive on Earth the Giant of Bab-il has already been activated.
      Here the Giant of Bab-il makes his way through but an unexpected help
      comes along the way. A group of tanks lead by King Giott fires multiple
      cannonballs at the Giant of Bab-il. Also your firend Yang is in one of
      the tanks as well then a fleet of airships led by Cid attacks the Giant
      of Bab-il(what firepower!) Also a pleasant surprise is on the airship as
      well, its Palom and Porom! The Elder has removed their petrification. In
      another airship is Edward he wants to show the courage Cecil had taught
      him. Here the Giant of Bab-il has never seen such heroics and firepower
      before and it feels intimidated. But the party must get in and destroy
      the core. Here the party asks for Cid to get them to the Giant's mouth. 
    
    
    DESTROY THE CORE FOR ALL LIVING THINGS ON EARTH!     Party's level: 24-29
      Now when your in here proceed to the top to reach it's neck. Then go to
      the Chest area. Here to the left is a SHURIKEN dart. Continue down and
      also pick up a CURE2 POTION along the way. Here continue on and pick up
      an ETHER1 POTION and also a set of 10 SAMURAI arrows at the top and a
      CABIN. After that proceed to the stomach area in here is a LIFE POTION
      and another LIFE POTION. Then continue onto the left. Here in the
      Passage pick up the ELIXIR but you must fight a LEFT ARM for it, which
      is not that hard to beat. Also watch out for its FISSION attack, so
      destroy it quick. Here proceed to the top which is a save point and heal
      your wounds if neccessary. Here you will be in the Lung part of the
      Giant. Inside here you will face off against the Four Fiends again,
      this time they fight together. Also Rubicant will heal any of your wounds.
    
    -----------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: ELEMENTS         HP: 104,000(total)
    -----------------------------------------------
      In this boss fight you first face off against MILON Z.(17,000 HP) This
      fight is too easy actually, have Cecil attack normally, have Rosa heal
      if neccessary, have Rydia use FIRE3 or the summon JINN if she is not up
      there in levels yet. Have FuSoya use FIRE3 which will do unthinkable
      damage on him and have Edge use his FLAME magic which will do about
      4,000 HP of damage against him. After you get through that warm-up this
      time you will have to fight RUBICANT(39,000)have Edge use FLOOD, have
      Cecil attack as normal, have Rydia summon SHIVA, have FuSoya use ICE-3
      and have Rosa be your healer. Here in this next battle is KAINAZZO(21,000),
      have Rydia use LIT-3 or summon INDRA depending on what level you are at,
      have Rosa be your healer, have Cecil attack regularly, have Edge use his
      BLITZ attack and FuSoya cast LIT-3. After this battle is VALVALIS(27,000)
      have Cecil attack regularly, have Rosa be the healer, have FuSoya cast
      LIT-3, have Rydia cast LIT-3 or summon INDRA depending on her level, and
      finally have Edge cast BLITZ. Also heal immediately once VALVALIS has
      used STORM because it will leave your party at only a few digits of HP.
      This fight shouldn't have been too hard tough, but it does drain on your
      MPs quite a bit though.
    
      After the battle the four fiends perish one by one. Now go back to your
      save point, heal your wounds and save. Now go back to the Lung and into
      the core. Here the alarm goes off. FuSoya tells the party to destroy
      the Defensive system first otherwise all damage will be repaired.
     
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: CPU, DEFENDER, ATTACKER  HP: 3000(DEFENDER, ATTACKER) 22,000(CPU)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Here just have FySoya cast WHITE on the CPU if he does not cast WALL on
      itself, then have Rydia just use BAHAMUT, Have Cecil take out the DEFENDER
      and have Edge attack the CPU, always leave the ATTACKER alone otherwise if
      you attack the CPU when it is without the DEFENDER and ATTACKER it will
      counter with GLOBE99 which will do 9,999 damage to a single party member,
      also if both the DEFENDER and ATTACKER are gone the CPU will simply revive
      them. I think the BAHAMUT summon should nullify the WALL but I'm not sure.
    
      After the fight the CPU will be destroyed. Then suddenly Golbez comes
      through, but FuSoya breaks Golbez out of Zemus' mind control. Here Golbez
      wonders why he had all the hatred in him. Also he remembers his father's
      name which is Kluya!!! That means Cecil has been fighting his brother all
      this time? Cecil and the party is shocked and amazed to discover what they
      have heard. Apparently Golbez's blood was easier for Zemus to control than
      Cecil. Here before Golbez leaves to settle things FuSoya decides to come
      with him. Here Golbez says his goodbye but Cecil doesn't say a word. Then
      suddenly the Giant of Bab-il is collapsing, the party can't seem to find
      a way out but Kain comes in. Edge already knows Kain's trickery, but Kain
      tells the party to hurry. Here the Giant explodes, Kain apologizes and he
      is ready to pay for his consequences, but Rosa tells Edge to stop. Here
      they tell Kain about Cecil's brother and also the fact that FuSoya and
      Golbez went to the moon to settle the dispute. Also Kain tells the party
      is he is hipnotized again then they should get rid of him. Here Cecil
      tells Rydia and Rosa to leave off the Big Whale and Kain ,Edge, and Cecil
      will go to the moon. Cecil doesn't want Rydia or Rosa to come back dead,
      Rosa leaves uneasily, and Edge makes yet another sassy remark to Rydia,
      she also leaves uneasily. Here the party reaches the moon, but before they
      leave Rosa appears and she did not leave the Big Whale after all. Cecil
      tells Rosa to get out of the way but she won't unless she comes with Cecil,
      then Cecil makes a promise to protect her in no matter what danger. Then
      they kiss, but not before Rydia has shown her way through. Cecil finally
      agrees to let Rydia come. Before you go to the Crystal Palace go to the
      cave just south of the crystal palace to restock on supplies. 
    
    
    RESTOCK BEFORE YOUR JOURNEY TO THE MOON'S CORE    Party's level: 27-32
      Here in this cave is a small shop that sells supplies. I suggest you buy
      about 15 CABINs and a bunch of CURE2 and LIFE POTIONs before moving on.
      Also if you think that you will run out of slots in your item inventory
      then buy a WHISTLE. After you are all done and set proceed to the
      Crystal Palace.
    
    
    THE FINAL BATTLE RESTS IN THE PARTY'S HANDS
      When you reach the crystal room you will get a chance to talk to the
      crystals. You will learn that there are eight crystals of Earth and eight
      crystals of the moon. When your done proceed to the middle and the crystals
      will automatically take you to the Moon's Core. Also make note that there
      are many tough opponents inside the Moon's Core and it will be quite a
      while before you reach your first save point in the Moon's core. When you
      first reach here go to the left through the hidden passage and onto the
      portal, here you should see a door in front, enter it and go through. Here
      you will see a treasure chest to the top which is a LIFE staff, but you
      must win a tough batle against two WARLOCKs and TWO KARYs. After that heal
      your wounds and proceed to the left and enter through the portal. In this
      next room just go down and enter through the door. Here you will be on
      the 3rd floor of the Subterrean and you will see a sword above it as well.
      Touch the sword and a boss fight will ensue.
    
    -------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: PALE DIM       HP: 26,000
    -------------------------------------
      This boss fight is rather tough to win. Make sure Rosa casts FLOAT on the
      party so the party can avoid the QUAKE attack and also she should be the
      healer. Have Rydia summon BAHAMUT, have Edge attack regularly as well as
      Cecil, and have Kain JUMP. Also the PALE DIM's attacks are awfully strong
      so make sure you heal quickly and bring back any members from the swoon
      condition. After the tough battle heal your wounds.
    
      After the PALE DIM has been defeated you will recieve the MURASAME, equip
      it on Edge and go back to the entrance of the Moon's Core. Now go to the
      top right and enter the hidden passage. Here go around and you will find
      a treasure chest which contains a NINJA robe for Edge. But you must fight
      a very tough battle against two REDGIANTS. Now go back around and down into
      the next room.  In this room is a treasure chest to the left through a not
      so hidden passage which contains a FLAME whip for Rydia, equip it and move
      on. To the top left is a DRAGOON shield, equip it on Kain and move on. In
      this room you will see a door in the middle, before you go into the room at
      the bottom right is a DRAGOON helmet, equip it and also to the right
      through a hidden passage is a DRAGOON armor, proceed to the left to collect
      a DRAGOON guantlet. After that head to the middle door and continue 
      through. In this next room go to the right and pick up a set of 10 ARTEMIS 
      arrows. Now continue down to the left room and inside is a treasure chest 
      which contains an ELIXIR. Now head out and go to the right and down and 
      into the next room. Inside go to the top right and pick up a CURE3 POTION 
      and continue to the left and at the end is another CURE3 POTION, after you 
      have picked that up go to the next room. To the left is a treasure chest 
      with a STARDUST rod, but a BEHEMOTH guards it. Defeat him, collect, the 
      treasure and continue to the right and into the walkway. In this next room 
      you will see a sword to the right, but you can't get it yet, and I wouldn't
      reccommend you trying either. To the bottom left is a treasure chest, make
      sure Rosa is equipped with the ARTEMIS arrows before you open it. Open it
      and a RED DRAGON and a BLUE DRAGON will appear. This fight is extremely
      tough so I'll consider this a boss fight:
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: RED DRAGON, BLUE DRAGON     HP: 32,000(total)
    ---------------------------------------------------------
      Make sure Kain is in the backrow otherwise you probably won't stand much
      of a chance. Kain is the only one in this party that can take the hits of
      the BLIZZARD attack by the BLUE DRAGON. Have Cecil attack regularly, have
      Rosa AIM at either Dragon which will cause critical hits. Have Rydia
      summon BAHAM and have Edge attack regularly. After a while Kain may
      possibly be the only one standing, have him continously JUMP at all times
      and have him heal himself when his HPs drop below 600. 
    
      After this incredibly tough battle you will recieve a special reward which
      is a CRYSTAL shield. Equip it on Cecil and move on. Here in this next room
      go to the top right and you will see a treasure chest, pick it up to
      collect a PROTECT ring, equip it on anybody and continue on towards the
      bottom of the cave. Here in this area go to the right and pick up the
      CRYSTAL armor, but you must defeat a BEHEMOTH for it. Now go back into
      the room and go up. Here you will see a treasure chest to the right, pick
      it up to recieve a CRYSTAL guantlet, but you must win a tough match
      against two RED DRAGOns, but this time the fight isn't nearly as hard.
      After you have picked it up and defeated the RED DRAGONs go to the left
      and into the next room. Here to the left is a WHITE gown for Rosa, equip
      it and move on. Out here to the right is a CRYSTAL helmet guarded by a
      WARLOCK and a D.FOSSIL, after that go to the left and inside is a CABIN
      collect it and move on. Also you might encounter a FATALEYE often, don't
      fight it, just have Edge use SMOKE because you most likely will not kill
      him in time before the timer goes off on your character. Here in this next
      room to the left is a set of 10 ARTEMIS arrows and to the right is a NINJA
      dart, after picking those two up go to down and continue to the bottom
      right path, but make sure you pick up a CABIN to the left. In this next
      room to the left is a HEROINE gown guarded by three KARYs and one WARLOCK,
      defeat them, collect and equip the HEROINE gown, and move onto the right.
      Here in this next room go down and enter the first door, here is your first
      save spot of the Moon's Core. Heal your wounds and save your game. Then
      continue onto the right. In here there is a lance in the middle touch it
      and a fight will ensue.
    
    ----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: PLAGUE      HP: 30,000
    ----------------------------------
      He will immediately begin the countdown timer on your entire party so you
      really have to move quickly. Here Have Cecil and Edge attack normally,
      have Rydia summon BAHAMUT, have Rosa use FAST on Cecil and Edge, and have
      Kain JUMP. Also when your timer reaches "0" keep pressing A so that you
      character won't die off. 
    
      After the battle the party has won the WHITE lance, equip it on Kain, but
      return to your save spot and save your game and restore any lost MP. Now
      go to the next room to the right. Here in this room before you can reach
      the two treasure chests, two D.LUNARs approach you.
    
    -------------------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: two D.LUNARs         HP: 15,000(each)
    -------------------------------------------------
      Here the first couple of attacks put out by the D.LUNARs are pretty much
      a joke. Then they will put a WALL on themselves. Here have Rydia summon
      BAHAMUT, have Cecil and Edge attack normally, have Rosa be the healer and
      cast FAST on Edge and Cecil, and finally have Kain JUMP. Here they will
      cast WALL on themselves, that means they will get ready to use VIRUS, there
      really isn't much you can do about it, but have Rosa use LIFE2 on any
      fallen party member. Also whenever you use magic against them they will
      counter with REMEDY which will recover 2100 HP, but that's okay since
      BAHAMUT does close to 5,000 on the both of them. Now return back to the
      save point, save your game, and heal your wounds. Before you go forward
      remember the room with the CABIN to the left? Well return back there and
      to the left of the previous CABIN is an invisible bridge. Go to the left
      and at the top through the middle of the block is a staircase. In this room
      is the B6 floor, at the bottom is a LIFE POTION, and continue to the right
      to find a portal. Here just continue up the stairway and into another 
      portal. Here you will be at B5 just continue straight up to find a treasure 
      chest which contains another PROTECT ring, but you must defeat a BEHEMOTH 
      to obtain it. After the battle heal your wounds and continue upwards and 
      into another portal. In here is a save room, save your game and continue 
      on. In this area you will see a sword that you saw earlier. Also try to 
      fight a few battles and duplicate a couple of EXCALIBURs and try to gain 
      Rosa's level to 49. Touch it and you will be attacked by a WYVERN.
    
    ----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: WYVERN      HP: 35,000
    ----------------------------------
      Ouch! He will most likely start the battle off with MEGANUKE which will
      probably kill off a few of your characters. Then he will put a WALL on
      himself then just start casting endless barrages of NUKE spells. This
      battle is probably too difficult, but it can be won. First have Cecil and
      Edge dart the EXCALIBUR swords, have Kain JUMP and have Rydia summon
      BAHAMUT, and have Rosa heal the party or use WHITE if she has it. Also use
      LIFE2 on anybody that is down. Keep this up and you should win the battle
      even though it will be an extremely difficult fight.
    
      After the tough and difficult battle, you will recieve the CRYSTAL sword,
      equip it and move on. Here go back to the B7 save point and save your game
      again. Also try to duplicate as many EXCALIBUR swords as you can as well.
      After that go up and in the next room you will be in the Moon's Core. Also
      pick up a NINJA dart along the way and at the bottom is yet another very
      tough and very difficult boss fight if you decide to pick up the MASAMUNE
      blade that is. Also in this area and from here to the last boss fight you
      will encounter enemies that are as tough as bosses, you cannot run from
      them unless you use Edge's SMOKE magic. If you do decide to pick up the
      MASAMUNE then hopefully you are ready for a very tough boss fight. 
    
    ------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: OGOPOGO       HP: 38,000
    ------------------------------------
      Ouch again! He will start off the battle with a double BIGWAVE attack that
      can shave off about 1,200 HP of damage to every party member. Also he will
      use the BIGWAVE attack frequently along the battle causing about 500 HP of
      damage to every character. So hopefully you did duplicate those EXCALIBUR
      swords. Have Edge dart the EXCALIBUR swords, have Rydia summon BAHAMUT,
      have Rosa bring back any party member from the swoon condition with LIFE2
      also have her heal the party and hopefully she is at level 49 so she can
      cast WHITE. Then have Kain JUMP and Cecil attack regularly. Keep this
      pattern up until he is gone.
    
      After the tough battle you might want to go back to the save point and
      heal your wounds and save your game. Then continue towards the next room
      past the room where you had defeated the OGOPOGO. In this room to the
      bottom right is an ELIXIR, collect it and continue downward. Down towards
      the bottom of this room is a WHISTLE, after that continue onwards to the
      next portal. In this room here to the bottom right is a NINJA dart, and to
      the left is another NINJA dart. Now continue towards the bottom right hand
      corner of the room and into the next area. In this area there are no
      treasure chests but alot of MINDs and BREATHs. Run away from the MINDs with
      Edge's SMOKE command, also the BREATHs basically do nothing, but have alot
      of HP. Here just continue onwards to the next room. Here you will see FuSoya
      and Golbez fight off against ZEMUS on their own. 
    
    -------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: ZEMUS          HP: 10,000
    -------------------------------------
      This fight you cannot control. After the two continuously cast useless
      magic they form up and cast the ultimate magic which is of course the
      W.METEO. Zemus falls easily, but he tells them that it is just the
      beginning. 
    
      Here the party reunites with Golbez and FuSoya, Cecil still doesn't want
      to talk to Golbez, but before the celebration starts Zemus' body gets
      burned and a presence even more evil than ZEMUS erupts, his name is 
      ZEROMUS! Here the party is stunned by the attacks of ZEROMUS. Golbez and 
      FuSoya fight against ZEROMUS. Here Golbez and FuSoya both cast METEO but 
      ZEROMUS absorbs the METEO and counters right back with METEO. They fall to 
      the power of ZEROMUS. Afterwards the scene shifts back to the Earth. Here 
      you will see your other friends in the Wishing Tower of Mysidia. They are 
      wishing for your party to return safely. Then the scene shifts towards back 
      to the Moon's core. Cecil then becomes consious and goes after ZEROMUS, but
      he is still very weak. Then his friends wish for him on the wishing tower
      at Mysidia, Cecil and his party members have been given the strength of
      his friends to fight.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    FINAL BATTLE: ZEROMUS         HP: 120,000(yes this is extremely close)
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
      First have Cecil use the CRYSTAL, this will make ZEROMUS change forms.
      And he must use the CRYSTAL otherwise all your attacks will miss. Then
      have Cecil attack normally, have Rosa cast WHITE and heal if neccessary,
      have Rydia summon BAHAMUT, not METEO because METEO takes far too long to
      come out. Then have Edge dart the SPOON dart and WHITE lances and EXCALIBUR
      swords and finally have Kain JUMP. Repeat this pattern while keeping your
      MPs up. Watch out for the BIG BANG attack which will knock off a few
      thousand HPs and drain your party's HP afterwards. Also ZEROMUS has a
      METEO attack but it is extremely weak doing only 900 HP of damage, and it
      doesn't even hit every character. Also his BLACK HOLE attack which will
      remove any positive status effect from your party like WALL or FAST. Keep
      attacking and make your decisions quick. You should win the battle after
      a while.
    
      Congratulations! You have beaten the game! Below is the ending, so this
      will spoil things for, and if you do not want to read the ending I suggest
      you turn away.

                                  |ENDING|
                                   ------
    
      Here ZEROMUS gives his last words telling them that he will not perish as
      long as there is evil in the hearts of peope. Here FuSoya his surprised
      that he didn't know the party had such power, then again Edge makes
      another egotistical remark. FuSoya tells the party that as long as evil
      exists so does good. Rydia finds it unbelieveable that ZEROMUS didn't use
      Edge instead, but he makes another remark. Here Golbez leaves and thanks
      Cecil for calling him brother, Golbez realizes that he cannot ask for
      forgiveness, Cecil is still silent. The party tells Cecil to say his last
      goodbye, but Cecil is still in conflict with his brother, then Cecil comes 
      out and gives his last goodbye. Afterwards a picture of the sun, Earth,
      and moon appears along with the Mysidian Legend. 
    
      Here the second part of the ending takes place one year after the defeat of
      ZEROMUS. It starts with Palom and Porom, but not before the Big Whale
      departs back to where it belongs. The Elder wishes to start today's lesson
      but Palom is nowhere to be found, then outside Palom is out there boasting
      about how he had melted the block of ice in Mt. Ordeals. Then Palom gets
      punished for it with homework. Then the scene shifts towards Eblan, here
      Edge is the new King, but he doesn't want to be King and he constantly
      thinks of Rydia. Then the scene shifts towards the Land of the Summoned
      Monsters where Rydia is, both Asura and Leviatan are overwhelm to see her
      back. The baby monster asks if she is different but Rydia tells them that
      they are the same on the inside. The next scene takes place at Fabul with
      Yang being the new King also his Wife being Queen. The next scene shifts
      towards Damcyan, he wishes to rebuild Damcyan, but he still thinks of Anna.
      Here the next scene shifts towards the underground at the Dwarf castle, the
      castle has been completely ruined and they have no more material to build
      the castle, so they decide to scrap the tanks because there won't be
      another war. And also they have been invited to Cecil and Rosa's ceremony
      at Baron. The next scene is shown with Kain, he apologizes for not being at
      Cecil and Rosa's ceremony because he wishes to become a True Dragoon 
      Knight. In this next scene you will see Professor Kory looking through a 
      telescope and they are astonished to see what they find. Here in this next 
      scene is Cecil and Rosa, Cecil thought he heard his brother's voice, but 
      Cid abrubtly tells them to hurry up. Then Cecil realizes that he did hear 
      his brother he called him brother. Here in this last scene the people Cecil 
      met up with throughout the game besides Tellah comes to the ceremony. Rydia 
      comes and tries to talk to Edge but he is too shy to see her. Then they 
      wave to you giving you their last goodbyes. Afterwards you roll the credits 
      sequence. The end! One of the best endings I have seen and certainly alot 
      better than Final Fantasy 7's ending(which was pretty good).

      Well in this section are just the side areas in the game that does not need
      to be completed to beat the game, its just here to add to the replay
      value, so enjoy!
    
    =============================================================================
    
    THE KING OF DRAGONS AWAIT
      When your in the Big Whale talk to the steering wheel at the top of the
      ship, don't talk to the crystal yet though otherwise you cannot obtain
      Bahamut until after you destroy the Giant of Bab-il. Also in here there
      is a room at the middle of the Big Whale, here you will never need TENTs
      or CABINs unless you are inside a cave. In here are like free inns, just
      simply go over it and the party will sleep automatically. Also at the
      bottom is a Fat Chocobo for you to store your items. Now head to the
      circular ring around a giant rock to the east of the Crystal Palace or to
      the West, it doesn't matter. Besides realistically the moon isn't very big
      anyways. Now enter the cave in the middle. Here go to the bottom and pick
      up a SAMURAI guantlet for Cecil and proceed to the right. Take the not so
      hidden passage and pick up the SAMURAI shield for Cecil and continue down
      and onto the next room. Now in this room go to the top left and take and
      equip the SAMURAI armor for Cecil and also before you go up pick up the
      SAMURAI helmet for Cecil as well. Before you go any further make sure you
      are fully healed. Now proceed to the middle and face off against BEHEMOTH.
    
    --------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: BEHEMOTH        HP: 16,000
    --------------------------------------
      This boss fight is pretty tough. The unique thing about this boss fight
      is that BEHEMOTH will not attack unless you attack him. Make absolutely
      sure that you do not cast NUKE, WHITE, or METEO when facing this guy unless
      you are sure it will kill him. If you do he will counter with STORM that
      will drop the entire party's HP to about the single digit area. First have
      Cecil and Edge attack as normal. Have FuSoya use any level 3 elemental
      spell, have Rydia summon Leviatan and have Rosa be your healer. After a
      couple of rounds and he should be gone.
    
      After the tough fight heal your wounds and continue on towards the top and
      into the next room. Here just continue down but another BEHEMOTH blocks
      your path.
    
    --------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: BEHEMOTH        HP: 16,000

      spell, have Rydia summon Leviatan and have Rosa be your healer. After a
      couple of rounds and he should be gone.
    
      After the battle heal your wounds. Now keep going and before you reach the
      middle of the cave another BEHEMOTH is there to slow you down. 
    
    --------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: BEHEMOTH        HP: 16,000
    --------------------------------------
      This boss fight is pretty tough. The unique thing about this boss fight

      spell, have Rydia summon Leviatan and have Rosa be your healer. After a
      couple of rounds and he should be gone.
    
      Now after this battle continue onto the middle of the room. Here talk to 
      the King and and he does not believe that you have defeated Leviatan 
      without the Power of Light. Here a boss fight will ensue.
    
    --------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: BAHAMUT         HP: 40,000
    --------------------------------------
    
      This boss fight is fairly easy. First have both Rosa and FuSoya cast WALL 
      on every party member and have Rydia summon Leviathan. Then have Cecil and   
      Edge attack contstantly. When the countdown goes to "0" that means he will 
      begin his MEGANUKE attack which is probably just as strong if not stronger 
      than Odin's ODIN attack. His MEGANUKE will reflect back at him causing 
      9,999 damage on him. Just keep pounding on him until he is done. Also you 
      cannot reflect MEGANUKE a second time and he will begin his countdown again 
      if your party is not destroyed. After all the WALLs are set have FuSoya 
      cast WHITE on BAHAMUT. After a couple of rounds he should be done for.
    
      Now that Rydia has learned the all powerful BAHAM summon you can call him
      anytime you want in battle!
    
    =============================================================================
    
    REVISIT TOWARDS THE VILLAGE OF MIST
      This is completely optional as it has nothing to do with the game. First
      make it to the house in the upper left hand corner. Here it might look like
      there's nothing, but if you walk into the fireplace you will go through and
      into a hidden room. Inside is a TIARA helmet, CLOTH ROBE, and a RUBYRING.
      Here you can also buy a BARD's robe for Cid, if he still has the PRISONER
      robe. Now leave your airship and head for the destroyed castle of EBLAN
      which is southwest of Baron.

    RUINS OF EBLAN
      Here this place is completely optional and does not effect the outcome of
      the game at all. Now head straight up and into a room with open treasure
      chest. In the top right corner of this room is a treasure chest that looks
      like its beyond reach, but just walk right into the treasure and pick up a
      CURE2 POTION. Here in this next room you will see three treasure chests to
      the right and two treasure chests to the left, right now they are
      unaccessible, but continue onto the King's room. Here to the top right
      corner is a secret passage leading to a staircase, enter the staircase and
      you will enter the place where there were three unaccesible treasure 
      chests, they contain a LIFE POTION, a CURE2 POTION, and a CABIN. To reach 
      the CABIN just walk under the treasure chests. Now return to the King's 
      room and take the secret passage to the top left corner to reach the other 
      room with previously unaccessible treasures. There are only two treasure 
      chests here which contain a HEAL POTION and a CURE2 POTION. Now return to 
      the courtyard and take the tower to the right. In this room you will see 
      two treasure chests, to take the treasure chest to the left go towards the 
      top left hand corner of the room and go through the walls and pick up 600 
      GOLD. Ignore the treasure chest on the right and enter the next room which 
      is a ETHER1 POTION and a CURE2 POTION. Check the pots above for a LIFE 
      POTION and this time go through the wall to the right of the pots and open 
      a treasure chests to initiate a fight. In this treasure chest are two BLACK 
      CATs and one LAMIA. This fight is pretty tough and watch out for the BLACK 
      CAT's BLUSTER attack which will either hold to swoon your party member. 
      Afterwards you pick up the DRAIN spear. Now pick up the CABIN beneath the 
      DRAIN spear and drop into the black hole. In this part of the room you will 
      pick up 800 GOLD, now head down and you will be at the basement. Pick up 
      the two treasure chests on the left first to collect two ETHER1 POTIONs. 
      Now make sure you are fully healed before taking a look inside the treasure 
      chest to the right. In this treasure chest is an ELIXIR, but you must kill 
      three MAD OGREs to get the item. This fight is pretty tough but with Yang's 
      CHARM claws this battle is a piece of cake. Now head out of the castle and 
      head back in, but this time take the left tower. You will see a few 
      treasure chests, but ignore them for now and continue on to the next floor. 
      Check the pot in the top left hand corner for a CURE2 POTION and the pot at 
      the bottom right hand corner for another CURE2 POTION. Now see that small 
      gap to the left of the screen? Enter it to pick up an ETHER1 POTION. Now 
      head back and walk through the hidden path at the bottom right hand corner 
      of the screen past the pot where you picked up a CURE2 POTION and you will 
      pick up 10 MUTE ARROWs and 2000 GOLD. Now head back to the entrance of the 
      left tower, but in the first room of the tower head outside, but do not go 
      outside. Head to the door, but stop right infront of the door leading out 
      of the left tower and head right and open the treasure chest to start a 
      fight. Here you will be attacked by 4 SKULLs and one STALEMAN. Have Yang 
      attack the STALEMAN with his CHARM claws to completely knock out the 
      STALEMAN with one blow, and have Cid use his EARTH hammer as an item to 
      cause critical damage to the skulls and that's it. Just make absolutely 
      sure Kain is NOT equipped with a DRAIN spear when he attacks the SKULLs 
      because the SKULLs will Drain him.
    
    =============================================================================
    
    THE MINI TOWN OF SILVERA
      This place is completely optional and will not change the outcome of the
      game. Here there are many treasure chests scattered in the green grassy
      areas which are hidden from the normal eye's view. So don't buy any weapons
      yet until you pick up a SILVER staff, a SILVER KNIFE, and 5000 GOLD. Buy
      new weapons if you like, but its not recodmended.
    
    =============================================================================
    
    THE KING OF THE SUMMONED MONSTERS AWAITS
      From the Sealed Cave go a little but northwest and you will see a small
      island on Magma, land you ship there and enter through. Here before you
      move anywhere immediately cast FLOAT, this will allow you to escape any
      harm done by the "Lava Pot Holes" and also the Quake attacks the opponents
      use here. And each time you enter a room you must cast FLOAT again so keep
      a good memory on that. Proceed to the top right corner and pick up a LIFE
      POTION and walk to the left and pick up an ETHER1 POTION and continue onto
      the bottom and at the bottom right hand corner is a CURE2 POTION. Then
      proceed to the next room on the left. In this room once again cast FLOAT
      and continue to the bottom and pick up a CURE2 POTION. Now go to the top
      left and pick up a CABIN and proceed to the right and enter through the
      ladder. Now continue towards the bottom  and pick up a LIFE POTION, and
      ignore the left side for now and continue to the right and pick up a CURE3
      POTION. Now to the right is a hidden passage, now go through and go down,
      to the left is a CURE2 POTION, a POISON axe, and a NINJA sword. Now go
      back all the way to the right and go up, before you enter the next room
      go to the top and open a Treasure chest to start a fight against 5
      WARRIORs, have Rydia use TITAN in this battle and have the party attack
      as usual. After the battle you recieve a DEFENSE sword for Cecil. Now
      enter the next room in here you will see a couple of mages. Now go down
      and pick up 3000 GOLD, continue to pick up 2000 GOLD, now continue around
      ignoring the portal to the next room and picking up another 2000 GOLD,
      then at the bottom is an ETHER1 POTION. Now go all the way down to the
      bottom of the room, you will see a part of the floor that is slightly
      shaded enter it and you will be in a hidden room which contains 10 SAMURAI
      arrows, an ELIXIR, an ETHER2, and a SAMURAI bow, now exit out of this room
      and proceed to the next room, but make sure to pick up the treasure chest
      which contains a RAT's tail. In here are some weapons and armor shops, but
      you really don't need any of that equipment right now. Continue to the top
      left corner and in here is a save sopt and two treasure chests, which
      contain a LIFE POTION and a HEAL POTION. Now save your game and heals
      your wounds if any. Now go down and enter the house where a yellow chocobo
      is standing in front of. Here in this room just make your way through and
      talk to Asura on the right. Rydia will ask for Queen Asura's help, but she
      will need to test the group's worthiness first. Select yes and enter to
      battle:
    
    -------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: ASURA          HP: 22,000
    -------------------------------------
      Here this boss fight is very easy. As long as Rosa is at level 34 this
      fight should be a breeze even though it takes a long time. First have
      Rosa cast WALL on ASURA that means all her healing attacks will bounce
      off her. If you are not at level 34 with Rosa that means this battle is
      hopeless or until you aquire BAHAMUT, Rosa aquires WHITE, Edge aquires the
      MURASAME and MASAMUNE, Cecil Quires the CRYSTAL sword, and Kain aquires
      the WHITE lance, but you shouldn't have to wait this long. After Rosa
      casts WALL on Asura just keep attacking. Don't worry about bringing your
      party members back to life because she does have a LIFE1 spell that will
      reflect off of her. 
    
      After the battle head back to the safe room and save your game. Now head
      back to the room that you fought Asura in and talk to the man on the
      left, here will test your strength and you should already have the Asura
      summon after the battle with Asura. Select yes and a fight will start. 
    
    ------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: LEVIATAN      HP: 35,000
    ------------------------------------
      This fight is not going to be easy. He will use his BIGWAVE attack often
      draining about 600 HP from everybody. Make sure you do not have any ICE
      equipment on Cecil because his ICE2 attack will do about 1300 HP of damage.
      You might want to have Rosa cast WALL on Cecil so that the ICE2 spell
      reflects back on LEVIATHAN. Also don't cast WALL on everybody so that
      Rosa can heal your party. Have Rydia use TITAN and Asura when your
      party's HP gets low. Have Rosa AIM and heal if neccessary, also make sure
      to bring back a party member quickly. Have Cecil and Edge attack regularly.
      After the battle Leviatan will lend you his power.
    
      After this event you have the RAT'S TAIL and Ashura and Leviathan to back
      you up in the events to come, if you have already completed all the events
      then congratulations!
    
    =============================================================================
    
    WHO'S THE INJURED MAN HERE?
      Inside here immediately cast FLOAT on the entire party. Now go to the
      right and pick up a CURE2 POTION and a set of 10 CHARM arrows. Now
      continue down. in this room is a staircase that leads to the top and one
      that leads to the bottom, take the bottom staircase for now. Here cast
      FLOAT again and you will see a save point, its not neccessary to save here
      and to the right is a ELVEN bow. Now continue to the left side is a 1000
      GOLD and a CABIN. Now continue down to the staircase.  Now head out of
      this room and take the staircase that is above you. In this next room go
      all the way to the top middle of the room through a hidden passage, and
      you will see a treasure chest, inside it contains a MUTE knife but you
      must defeat 6 TINYTOADs and a TOADLADY to win it, which is not pretty hard.
      Now continue onto the next room IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROOM. In here go up
      and find a CURE2 POTION, an ETHER1 POTION, a set of 10 LIT arows, a set
      of 10 ICE arrows, and a set of 10 FIRE arrows. Now head out and go up and
      enter the room above you. In this room to the left is an ELIXIR, after
      picking it up proceed down. Later along the way you will see a house of
      some sort. In here you will find a CATCLAW and a POISON claw that Yang
      was wearing earlier. Here you will see Yang, but he is unconsious right
      now, so have Rydia cast WARP four times and you will see a staircase in
      the middle you saw earlier, but this time take the top staircase you didn't
      take earlier. Once again don't forget to cast FLOAT. In this room go to the
      top where you will see three treasure chests, they are a CURE2 POTION, a
      HEAL POTION, and a CHARM rod. Now head to the right via the not so hidden
      passage and into the next room. In this room go right and go down and pick
      up the four treasure chests which contain a CURE2 POTION, 3000 GOLD, 2000
      GOLD, and a HEAL POTION. After doing that continue down. Here there are
      five unopened treasure chests which contain a CURE3 POTION, CURE2 POTION,
      HEAL POTION, another HEAL POTION, and an ETHER1 POTION. After that drop
      into the hole to the right. Here just go up and to the left and enter the
      portal to take you to a room with six treasure chests. The top first one
      contains an ELIXIR which you will have to fight 6 GHOSTs for. The bottom
      treasure chest contains a FULL MOON boomerrang for Edge, but you will have
      to fight 2 DARKTREEs and two MOLBOLs for it though. To the next one on
      the top is another ELIXIR but you will have to fight 6 GHOSTs for it.
      The bottom second treasure chest contains an AVENGER sword which you will
      have to fight two MOLBOLs for it. The next treasure chest on the top is
      an ELIXIR which you will have to fight six GHOSTs for. The treasure chest
      on the bottom contains a set of 10 MEDUSA arrows which you will need to
      fight 2 CENTIPEDEs for. So that's it!
    
    =============================================================================
    
    HOW DO WE WAKE UP YANG?
      NOTE: You MUST complete the last event to do this.
      Head for Fabul, and go to Yang's wife who is at the top of one of the
      towers. Here you tell Yang's wife about Yang's condition. She will give you
      a frying pan. Now head back to the Sylph's Cave where Yang was.
    
    =============================================================================
    
    SNAP OUT OF IT!
      NOTE: You MUST complete the last event to do this.
      In here go to where you saw Yang earlier. In the house where you saw Yang
      give him a good whack on the head with the frying pan. After Yang wakes up
      he wishes to join the party but the Fairies tell him to stay in bed. Then
      again Edge's mouth opens up. Here the Slyphs will see that Rydia is a
      caller and that you can now summon the Sylphs. After that head back to
      Yang's wife in Fabul.
    
    =============================================================================
    
    OUCH! WITH THIS WE CAN EASILY DEFEAT ZEROMUS!
      NOTE: You MUST complete the last event to do this.
      When you reach Fabul Castle head back there and head for the Yang's room.
      Here give her back the frying pan and she will apologize for taking your
      time. She will give you the Spoon Dart, which is the strongest Dart in the
      game. You can use it against Zeromus at the end of the game, but if you
      have trouble with some other bosses, this dart will help out a lot.
    
    =============================================================================
    
    GET THE ADAMANT ORE*
      NOTE: You must have picked up the RAT'S TAIL from the Land of the Summoned
            Monsters to complete this mini side area.
      Here just use your Hovercraft and go to the small cave. Inside you will
      see two mini people, talk to the one in the middle. He doesn't want to
      talk to you unless you have a Tail for him. Here just give him the Rat's
      Tail and he will give you the Adamant Ore.
    
    =============================================================================
    
    A FORMER KING WISHES TO HELP
      Here save your game outside and go in. Make sure you duplicate your NINJA
      sword and your DEFENSE SWORDs(see the bottom of this walkthrough) before
      you proceed. Now remember what the King told you? He said to visit the
      Land of the Summoned Monsters and come back. Well now that you have
      already visited the Land of the Summoned Monsters, go to the basement of
      Baron and into the King's room. Here the King welcomes you back and as
      expected Cecil is happy to see the King. He tells you that the Caller of
      Mist can sumon him whenever she pleases but he must test the party's
      worthiness.
    
    -------------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT: ODIN           HP: 19,000
    -------------------------------------
      Ouch! You have to beat this guy quick otherwise he will use his ODIN
      attack that will do about 4,000 HP to every party member. Have Rosa use
      WHITE(she must be at level 49 to cast this) and have Rydia summon
      Leviatan, have Edge dart as many things as possible and have Cecil
      attack. After a while he will go down.
    
      After the battle you can now summon ODIN.
    
    =============================================================================
    
    THE LEGENDARY SWORD CAN NOW BE MADE!
      When you are in the underground go to the southeast part of the
      Underground and talk to the Blacksmith upstairs that is sleeping. Here
      hand him over the Adamant ore and also you must give him the LEGEND sword.
      Here he will tell you to come back later. So complete some event or wait
      about 20 minutes, then come back.
    
    =============================================================================
    
    THE LEGENDARY SWORD IS NOW YOURS!!!
      NOTE: Hopefully you did do like I asked you so that you can obtain the
            sword.
      Remember the blacksmith in Kokkol? Its in the southeast corner in the
      underworld. Talk to the Blacksmith now and you will recieve the EXCALIBUR.
      Equipped it and watch your attack power make a tremendous jump! Now if
      you couldn't defeat Odin earlier then make sure you duplicate a ton of
      EXCALIBURs and head back to Baron. But if you have already defeated ODIN
      or if you don't want to fight him for now then head towards the Castle
      of Fabul.

                                Miscellaneous
                                -------------
      This is just the miscellaneous part of the FAQ. If your not sure what
      your weapon or item is capable of, then I'm here to explain it.
    
    =============================================================================
    -------------------------------- [ Items ] ----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
    =====
    CURE1-- Heals the party member's HP anywhere from 50 HP to about 80 HP. This 
    =====   is very useful early on, but as your HP becomes increasingly higher
            this will become obsolete during battles, however you might want to
            keep some incase you want to heal after battles. This also works
            damages monsters like ZOMBIEs, SKELETONs, REVENANTs, MILON Z.,
            or others.
    
    =====
    CURE2-- Heals the party member's HP anywhere from 100 HP to about 200 HP.
    =====   This is very useful early on, but as your HP becomes increasingly
            higher this will become obsolete during battles, however you might
            want to keep some incase you want to heal after battles. This also
            damages undead monsters like ZOMBIEs, SKELETONs, REVENANTs,
            MILON Z., or others.
    
    =====
    CURE3-- Rare item. You can not buy these in shops, and only a few of them
    =====   are scattered around the world. Heals the party member's HP anywhere
            from 350 HP to about 500 HP. However early on, or during your
            journey in the Underworld this should help, but as enemy attacks
            become stronger and your HP becomes higher this will become obsolete.
            This also damages undead monsters like ZOMBIEs, SKELETONs, REVENANTs,
            MILON Z., or others.
    
    ====
    HEAL--- This is probably the must have item of your inventory. This simple
    ====    potion will relieve you of all status including: FROG, MINI, PIG, 
            CURSED, BERSERK, SLOW, FAST, PARALYSIS, SILENCE, FLOAT, CHARM,
            POISON, and SLEEP. If your party member is in a swoon condition,
            then the HEAL POTION will have no effect on the swooned party
            member.
    
    ====
    TENT-- This is also the must have item of your inventory early on. This
    ====   will revive about 1000 HP and about 120 MP, but again as your level
           increases your TENT will not be enough to heal you completely and it
           might even take serveral tents to heal you completely. Also it
           relieves any party member of a status effect, but will not bring back
           the swooned party member. This item can only be used on save points
           or on the world map.
    
    =====
    CABIN-- This is the item that should be remained with you throughout the
    =====   game. It will completely restore all lost HP and all lost MP no
            matter what level your at. Also this will fully recover the party
            member in swoon condition as well as heal all status effects. This
            item can only be used on the world map and save points.
    
    ====
    LIFE-- This should stay in your inventory just for back up in the later
    ====   part of the game, even if you have a LIFE2 spell because you will
           never know when you run out. However bringing the swooned party
           member back to life is a gamble because this will revive the party
           member, but they will only have about 15% of their total max HP and
           you will need to heal them.
    
    ======
    CARROT-- This is a very much useless item once you get the BIG WHALE. What
    ======   this will do is call upon a Fat Chocobo so you can store your
             overloading items. But you can only use the carrot when it smells
             like a Fat Chocobo you can use it and a Fat Chocobo will appear
             allowing you to store or take away your previously stored items.
    
    =======
    WHISTLE-- Well this item cost quite a bit of GOLD, but it can summon the Fat
    =======   Chocobo anytime you decide to use it, no matter if your in the 
              castle or on a chocobo farm, but this cannot be used on the world
              map. So incase you find a treasure chests and you can find the
              room for the item inside even if you did sort everything out this
              is the item to use, or before a boss battle you can decide to use
              this to bring out any other weapons you might have stored. Also
              you can buy extra ARROWs, TENTs, CABINs, CURE2s, etc. just to
              store them on the Fat chocobo.
    
    ======
    ELIXIR-- As you should know this is a very costly item, however it is the
    ======   most useful when fighting tough boss battles when your HP and MP
             gets depleted. This will completely restore your HP and MP but it
             will not bring the character back from swoon status or cure any
             status effects, make sure you keep a few just incase.
    
    ======
    ETHER1-- This is your magic potion, it will restore about 40 MP and should
    ======   be kept in your inventory early on so that in any case you are to
             run out of MPs during a middle of a battle, this would be the
             quick way to use it.
    
    ======
    ETHER2-- This is your magic potion, it will restore about 100 MP to about 
    ======   180 MP and should be kept in your inventory early on so that in any
             case you are to run out of MPs during a middle of a battle, this
             would be the quick way to use it.
    
    ========
    FIREBOMB-- This item can either be obatined after you have defeated a Red
    ========   Dragon or you can steal it from them during battle. When used as 
               an item it will cast FIRE2 against all opponents on the screen.
    
    =======
    LITBOLT-- Basically it casts LIT-2 to all opponents when it is used as an
    =======   item. I forgot who you can steal this from so if anybody would like
              to help it would be greatly appreciated.
    
    ========
    ICEBLAST-- Basically this item casts ICE2 to all opponents on the screen when
    ========   it is used during battle. You can win this after you have defeated
               two BLUE DRAGONs, but you will not always get the item all the
               time you defeat two BLUE DRAGONs.
    
    ====
    TAIL-- An item used to exchange at the SILVERA cave near SILVERA. Once you
    ====   trade this in for the Adamant Ore go to the southeast side of the 
           underworld and give it to the old guy and he will make the sword
           EXCALIBUR for you.
    
    =========
    PINK TAIL-- An extremely rare item of having a 1-4096 chance of obtaining
    =========   it. In the B5 floor of the Moon's core there is a small room
                with a CABIN inside. Here this is the only place where PINK
                PUFFs will fight you. There is a 1-64 chance of a PINK PUFF
                encounter and a 1-64 chance that a PINK PUFF will give you a
                PINK TAIL after battle. You cannot steal the PINK TAIL from the
                PINK PUFF though. After you have the PINK TAIL go back to the
                SILVERA cave near Silvera and give the minature guy the PINK
                TAIL and he will give you the other Adamant Ore to be given to
                the old guy in the southeast corner of the Underworld. Wait a
                little while after that and then you will recieve the strngest
                armor in the game, the ADAMANT ARMOR!

    ----------------------------- [ Magic Listing ] -----------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
      Like in practically all RPGs magic is used. Its extremely difficult to
      beat the game without magic and magic is probably your greatest asset.

    =======================================================================
      A poison attack that steadily drains your opponent's HP. Immune against

    =======================================================================
    PIG--    MP Consumption: 1        Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)

      used to change the opponent into a pig or a party member into a pig, it
      can also be used to change a party member back from a pig as well. This

    =======================================================================
    STONE--  MP Consumption: 15       Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    =======================================================================
      A status effect either used on an opponent or a party member. It is
      used to change the opponent into Stone or a party member into Stone.
      However you cannot use this to reverse the effects of Stone, but each
      time you use it the party member or enemy will be affected slowly, using
      multiple uses will completely petrify the opponent or party member making
      them unmobile for the entire battle or until someone decides to heal them.
    
    =======================================================================
    SLEEP--  MP Consumption: 12       Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    =======================================================================
      A status effect either used on an opponent or a party member. It is used
      to put either the opponent or a party member to sleep. The party member
      will wake up in time or if you decide to HEAL them, this goes the same for
      the opponent. When this status effect occurs the party member or opponent
      becomes inactive for a period of time during battle until they wake up,
      which will happen at any given time.
    
    =======================================================================
    STOP--   MP Consumption: 9        Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    =======================================================================
      A status effect either used on an opponent or a party member. It is used
      to put either the opponent or a party member on paralysis. The opponent's
      name for this spell is HOLD. The party member or opponent therefor becomes
      inactive for the battle until someone decides to heal them or given a long
      period of time they will "snap" out of it.
    
    ===================================================================
    QUAKE--  MP Consumption: 30       Target: Party member, enemy (all)
    ===================================================================
      A very powerful earth attack that damages all enemies. However flying
      enemies are immune to this, but this magic attack cannot be reflected
      back by a WALL.
    
    =======================================================================
    WEAK--   MP Consumption: 25       Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    =======================================================================
      Extremely powerful attack that will drain all the opponent's HP or your
      party member's HP except for about 1-9 HP. The opponent's equilvalent of
      this black magic attack is STORM. However this will not hurt any bosses
      and most enemies are immune to this attack.
    
    =======================================================================
    DRAIN--  MP Consumption: 18       Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    =======================================================================
      This attack can vary. This black magic attack is useless unless your
      current HP is significantly lower than your MAX HP. For example if
      Tellah has 440/460 HP that means he will gain only a little amount, but
      if he has 35/460 HP that means he will gain an abundance of HP. There is
      one thing I must warn you about this spell though, never drain undead
      monsters! You will end up swooning yourself instead because undead
      monsters have no life force.
    
    =======================================================================
    PSYCH--  MP Consumption: 0        Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    =======================================================================
      Once again this attack can vary. Well I'm not sure you can call it an 
      attack because it drains MPs not HPs. Depending on how much MP you have
      will result in your amount of MP you gain. For example if Rydia has 650/720
      MP she will gain only a little amount, but if Rydia has 220/720 MP she
      will gain a significant amount of MP from the opponent.
    
    ===================================================================
    FATAL--  MP Consumption: 35       Target: Party member, enemy (one)
    ===================================================================
      A quick attack to be rid of an opponent or a party member. This will
      instantly take the life of an opponent or party member, but this attack
      can be reflected back by a WALL! This will not work on undead monsters
      or spirits and ghosts and also even if opponents cannot defend against it
      you will still have some trouble for this to fully work.
    
    ========================================================================
    VIRUS--  MP Consumption: 20        Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    ========================================================================
      Very powerful poison attack that drains the HP out of an opponent or a
      party member more quickly than VENOM. Once this is cast it attacks for
      about 1000 HP of damage and then quickly drains the opponent, however
      this can be fully cured with a HEAL spell or HEAL POTION.
    
    ====================================================================
    NUKE--   MP Consumption: 50        Target: Party member, enemy (one)
    ====================================================================
      Immensely powerful attack that knocks off serveral thousand points of
      HP from an opponent or a party member. Just make sure you do not cast
      this on an opponent who has a WALL up because this attack can be reflected.
    
    ===============================================
    WARP--   MP Consumption: 4         Target: None
    ===============================================
      This is used to teleport back to the last room you were in and is
      also used to escape from battle.
    
    ====================================================================
    METEO--  MP Consumption: 99        Target: Party member, enemy (all)
    ====================================================================
      Catastrophically powerful attack that summons multiple meteors to attack
      all opponents. This is by far the strongest black magic attack and the
      strongest attack in the game. No matter hwat level your black magic user
      or caller is at it will always do 9999 damage to every opponent on the
      screen. There is a downside to this attack though, it takes far too long
      for this to be cast and will take about 3 to 4 turns to use this attack
      but it cannot be blocked by a WALL and everybody suffers damage from it,
      so you will not find anybody abosrbing this into HPs.
    
    =============================================================================
    -------------------------- [ White Magic Listing ] --------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
      White Magic is primarily used for healing purposes. The white magic will
      heal your party in aid of HPs or cure negative status effects. Also white
      magic is used to put the party on positive status effects like FAST. White
      magic becomes stronger as your Will increases by level.
    
    
    
    =========================================================================
    CURE1--  MP Consumption: 3          Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    =========================================================================
      A low cure magic that restores the party member's or opponent's lost HP.
      This is very effective against undead monsters, but it does not do as much
      damage as FIRE magic.
    
    =========================================================================
    CURE2--  MP Consumption: 9          Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    =========================================================================
      A medium cure magic that restores the party member's or opponent's lost
      HP. This is very effective against undead monsters, but it does not do
      as much damage as FIRE magic.
    
    ==========================================================================
    CURE3--  MP Consumption: 18          Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    ==========================================================================
      A high cure magic that restores the party member's or opponent's lost HP.
      This is very effective against undead monsters, but it does not do as much
      damage as FIRE2 magic.
    
    ==========================================================================
    CURE4--  MP Consumption: 40          Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    ==========================================================================
      A max cure magic that restores the party member's or opponent's lost HP.
      This will fully restore the party member's or opponent's HP to the maximum
      limit and this is also very effective against undead monsters, but it does
      not do as much damage as FIRE3 magic.
    
    =================================================
    SIGHT--  MP Consumption: 2           Target: None
    =================================================
      This is not much of a magic because all it really allows you to see a
      brief view of the world map. You can only use this when your outside, this
      magic is useful early on when you can not find your way around or when you
      do not have an airship. This magic will allow you to see beyond your
      current view of the world map just incase you are lost.
    
    ==========================================================================
    SIZE--   MP Consumption: 6           Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    ==========================================================================
      This is a negative status effect that will shrink the current size of
      your character. Your defense and offense drops drastically and this also
      has the effect of CURSED.
    
    ======================================================================
    BERSK--  MP Consumption: 18          Target: Party member, enemy (one)
    ======================================================================
      What this magic will do is increase the power of a party member's attacks
      or an opponent's attacks, but the party member cannot be controlled as they
      are in Berserk mode, although they can cause critical hits they cannot
      however aid the party with magic or use items.
    
    ======================================================================
    LIFE1--  MP Consumption: 8           Target: Party member, enemy (one)
    ======================================================================
      This magic will bring back any party member from a swoon status or kill
      an undead monster. However the party member only comes back with about 15%
      of their total MAX HP, so you will need to heal that party member
      afterwards.
    
    ======================================================================
    LIFE2--  MP Consumption: 52          Target: Party member, enemy (one)
    ======================================================================
      This magic is very costly but it will bring back a party member to full
      HP, however this will not restore full MP. This can be used to kill an
      undead monster, but like LIFE1 it has a low success rate against undead
      monsters.
    
    ======================================================================
    PEEP--   MP Consumption: 1           Target: Party member, enemy (one)
    ======================================================================
      This magic is used to see the HP and MP of the target. It also displays
      theie weakness if any. But PEEP does not work on bosses and will have a
      low success rate even against common enemies.
    
    ======================================================================
    WALL--   MP Consumption: 30          Target: Party member, enemy (one)
    ======================================================================
      What this magic will do is temporarily bounce back magic attacks, but it
      can only bounce it back anywhere from 2 to 4 times. If the opponent sets
      up a WALL it means you can't use magic right? Wrong. What you can do is
      set up a WALL on your party member(s) and use your own magic and use it
      against your party member with a WALL, since a WALL cannot bounce back
      reflected magic that means you can still damage the opponent, or vice
      versa.
    
    ======================================================================
    HEAL--   MP Consumption: 20          Target: Party member, enemy (one)
    ======================================================================
      This magic is exactly like the HEAL POTION. It will completely cure you
      of all status effects even multiple status effects, so when you run out
      of HEAL POTIONs you can use this instead.
    
    ======================================================================
    MUTE--   MP Consumption: 6           Target: Party member, enemy (one)
    ======================================================================
      This is an extremely useful magic status effect that can tip the odds
      in your favor. What this magic effect will to is SILENCE your opponent
      or your party member, therefor disallowing the opponent or the party
      member not to use magic. This will last through out the battle, but it
      can be easily cured with a HEAL POTION or the HEAL SPELL.
    
    ======================================================================
    HOLD--   MP Consumption: 5           Target: Party member, enemy (one)
    ======================================================================
      What this will do is hold the opponent or your party member, practically
      paralyzing you for the battle. You can however "snap" out of it or if you
      decide to heal your party member with a HEAL POTION or the HEAL SPELL.
    
    ======================================================================
    CHARM--  MP Consumption: 10          Target: Party member, enemy (one)
    ======================================================================
      What this magic attack will do is confuse the opponent or your party
      member, that does not mean the opponent or your party member will be on
      your side or the opponent's side. The opponent or your party member is
      just confused as to who to it, that means the hits can go either way.
      But if you do manage to confuse an opponent it is advantageous to your
      party anyways.
    
    ==========================================================================
    SLOW--   MP Consumption: 14          Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    ==========================================================================
      What this magic effect will do is slow done the opponent, therefor the
      opponent must wait longer between each hits to attack or make a command,
      this goes the same for your party member(s) as well. Using the HEAL POTION,
      HEAL SPELL, of FAST to cure this.
    
    ==========================================================================
    FAST--   MP Consumption: 25          Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    ==========================================================================
      What this magic effect will do is speed up the time between attacks, 
      therefor the opponent or your party member has more chances to attack so
      you or the opponent does not have to wait to attack. You can choose to cure
      this if you want with the HEAL POTION, HEAL SPELL, or SLOW. This is
      advantageous to your party members, but this can only be used on one
      party member, while it can be used on all opponents at the same time.
    
    ==========================================================================
    BLINK--  MP Consumption: 8           Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    ==========================================================================
      What this magic effect will do is allow the opponent or your party
      member(s) to dodge 2 to 3 attacks. This is very useful for dodging attacks
      that are too powerful for your magic people to handle. Just like the spell
      FAST you can only use this on one of your party members at once or you can
      use it on all opponents at the same time. If you want you can cure this
      with a HEAL POTION or the HEAL SPELL.
    
    ===================================================================
    FLOAT--  MP Consumption: 8           Target: Party member (one/all)
    ===================================================================
      All though this might not look like a useful spell, its more useful than
      you think. During your trip to the underground you will encounter many
      Lava "Pot holes" in your trips and many of them can hurt you very
      seriously. When you use FLOAT you can easily float over them so that you
      are not touching the lava "pot holes" and also enemies in the underworld
      often use QUAKE spells, but with your FLOAT on you can escape injury
      against QUAKE spells.
    
    =================================================
    EXIT--   MP Consumption: 10          Target: None
    =================================================
      This is a very useful spell that dates back to the original Final 
      Fantasy. When you are stuck in a dungeon or cave and either your HPs are
      low, your MPs are low, monsters in here are too strong, or your just
      plain lost you can use this to escape completely out of the cave or
      dungeon. This can also be used to escape from battles as well.
    
    ======================================================================
    WHITE:   MP Consumption: 46          Target: Party member, enemy (one)
    ======================================================================
      Although White magic is not known for its attack magic, this is one of
      the strongest spells in the game. The damage can easily reach 9999 even
      when your party member(Rosa) is not even at level 99. You will not find
      anyone absorbing this attack because its a Holy attack that will do quite
      a bit of damage, but there is a serious downside to this though...it can
      be reflected successfully by a WALL! 
    
    =============================================================================
    -------------------------- [ Summon Magic Listing ] -------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
      Summon magic was first discovered on the Famicom version of Final Fantasy
      3 which never saw a U.S. release. Summon magic is unique from the black
      magic category because you cannot reflect summon magic, and summon magic
      can never be used against the party. Summon magic elementals like SHIVA or
      JINN are not like FIRE2, FIRE3, ICE2, or ICE3, but except they are more in
      between like FIRE2.5 or ICE2.5. Also LEVIATAN is a water based attack, it
      is the only one of two water based attacks in the game. What is unique
      about this LEVIATAN attack is that it will harm fire enemies as easily as
      ICE magic but it will heal Water based enemies, unlike ICE magic which will
      harm water based enemies. Summon magic, no matter how powerful or how weak,
      it will come out pretty fast unlike the white and black magic counter 
      parts. Summon magic grows stronger as your Wisdom builds by levels and only 
      the Caller may use Summon magic.
    
    
    =======================================================
    CHOCB-- MP Consumption: 7           Target: Enemy (one)
    =======================================================
      Early on this will be your strongest attack as a Chocobo does a physical
      attack towards an opponent. A very powerful unblockable attack with very
      little MP usage.
    
    =======================================================
    MIST--  MP Consumption: 20          Target: Enemy (all)
    =======================================================
      Despite the little MP usage this is an overall very powerful attack,
      its a MIST attack, and it is not an ICE or WATER attack either. I haven't
      found an enemy yet that can absorb this, so using this against anybody is
      practically safe and the damage that it does will surprise you.
    
    =======================================================
    TITAN-- MP Consumption: 40          Target: Enemy (all)
    =======================================================
      A powerful earthquake attack that damages all enemies. This works
      against anyone except of course flying enemies, also this attack is
      weaker than the black magic QUAKE attack, so if I were you just use the
      other attack because it does more damage with less MP, unless of course
      you just want to see the 16 bit special effects for the magic.
    
    =======================================================
    SHIVA-- MP Consumption: 30          Target: Enemy (all)
    =======================================================
      This is an Ice attack that can pack quite a punch against fire enemies.
      This summon spell is essential when you are in the underworld. Consider
      this attack like ICE2.5 because the damage is somewhere in between ICE2
      and ICE3.
    
    =======================================================
    JINN--  MP Consumption: 30          Target: Enemy (all)
    =======================================================
      This is an Ice attack that works extremely well against Ice enemies.
      Also do not use this against Fire enemies because you will heal them,
      this is also essential against undead enemies as well. Consider this
      attack like FIRE2.5 because the damage is somewhere between FIRE2
      and FIRE3.
    
    =======================================================
    INDRA-- MP Consumption: 30          Target: Enemy (all)
    =======================================================
      This is a Lightning attack that works well against flying enemies or
      water enemies. Like all summon magic this attack is unblockable and
      consider this attack like LIT-2.5 because the damage done is somewhere
      between LIT-2 and LIT-3.
    
    ========================================================
    SYLPH-- MP Consumption: 25           Target: Enemy (one)
    ========================================================
      Consider this your drain attack, but unlike DRAIN you cannot drain from
      undead monsters, but with this you can! The Fairies will come in and
      drain a whole bunch of HPs from an opponent and spread out the HPs to
      your party members. Also it does not matter on the amount of HPs you have,
      even if you all you have MAX HPs you will still gain a good amount of HPs.
    
    ===============================================================
    ASURA-- MP Consumption: 50           Target: Party member (all)
    ===============================================================
      This summon is a bit unique. It has three faces each face has an attribute
      of white magic. Each time you summon it, the faces will revolve around and
      it will be unpredictable as to which face it will stop at. If the rotation
      stops at the gray face that means she will use LIFE1 to every party member,
      if the rotation stops at the brown face that means she will spread CURE4 to
      everyone, and if it stops at the Asura face that means she will spread a
      CURE5 spell to everyone. Although there isn't a CURE5 spell in the game the
      amount the Asura face heals is tremendous and can easily boost back your
      party into the battle if there HPs are low. say you were to spread your
      CURE4 spell to all members, it would only heal about 1300 HP to every party
      member, but while the Asura face heals about 4000 HP to every Party member.
      I don't think the faces will heal any status effect though.
    
    ========================================================
    LEVIA-- MP Consumption: 50           Target: Enemy (all)
    ========================================================
      This is a very powerful water attack that will do some serious damage.
      This spell should be useful throughout the entire game as a Water attack
      rushes towards an opponent causing serveral thousand points of HP of
      damage. Very useful in the underworld and boss fights.
    
    ========================================================
    ODIN--  MP Consumption: 45           Target: Enemy (all)
    ========================================================
      Hands down the strongest attack in the game, you might think its METEO
      but its not. There is only a 1-in-4 chance of this connecting however,
      but no matter how many HPs your opponent has and if ODIN does manage to
      connect the opponents will be cut in two, as the former King of Baron
      aids the party with his spirit. However as you can expect this will not
      work against bosses.
    
    ========================================================
    BAHAM-- MP Consumption: 60           Target: Enemy (all)
    ========================================================
      Once your levels get high enough METEO will become obsolete. Think of
      this as your NUKE attack but except this is four times stronger, it hits
      all enemies, and it is unblockable. Even early on this is the summon that
      should be used often and especially in boss battles.
    
    =============================================================================
    -------------------------- [ Ninja Magic Listing ] --------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
      Ninja magic was created by both white and black wizards. Ninja magic is
      very much similar to all magics with attributes from all magics. Ninja
      magic becomes stronger as your Wisdom grows by level.
    
    
    ========================================================
    FLAME-- MP Consumption: 15           Target: Enemy (all)
    ========================================================
      Consider this a a FIRE2 attack except it does not lose its strength if it
      is spread among enemies. This is good against Ice enemies and also can be
      used against undead monsters.
    
    ========================================================
    FLOOD-- MP Consumption: 20           Target: Enemy (all)
    ========================================================
      This is one of two Water based attacks in the entire game. I would
      consider this a WATER2 attack against all enemies except it does not
      lose its strength when it is spread among enemies. This works well in the
      underworld and also all enemies made of fire.
    
    ========================================================
    BLITZ-- MP Consumption: 25           Target: Enemy (all)
    ========================================================
      Consider this a LIT-2.5 attack against all enemies except it does not lose
      its strength when it is spread among enemies. This is very useful against
      flying enemies or enemies made of water. 
    
    ==========================================================================
    PIN--   MP Consumption: 5            Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    ==========================================================================
      Think of this as HOLD. This can be used against a party member or an
      opponent. This is a paralysis attack that will paralize the opponent being
      unable to move. You can either let your party member "snap" out of it or
      you can use your HEAL POTION or the HEAL SPELL to cure it.
    
    ==========================================================================
    IMAGE-- MP Consumption: 6            Target: Party member, enemy (one/all)
    ==========================================================================
      This really isn't an attack but it can help you dodge 2 to 3 attacks. This
      spell works exactly like BLINK and can help the magic user or a party
      member with low defense dodge attacks that would normally be enough to
      serverely injure them.
    
    =================================================
    SMOKE-- MP Consumption: 10           Target: None
    =================================================
      This is not an attack but rather useful magic. This magic is used to
      escape from battles that are normally unescapeable except for boss fights
      of course. Also when you use this you do not lose any GOLD in the process
      and Edge comes out and immediately performs this magic attack so you
      won't have to wait. Use this when you don't think you can win the battle
      or when you don't want to lose alot of GOLD.
    
    
    =============================================================================
    --------------------------- [ Twin Magic Listing ] --------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
      Twin magic is not very much different from most magics. However they do
      require two people to perform these attacks mainly the twins of Mysidia.
      Early on these magic attacks become quite useful but will take sometime to
      perform and requires the twins to be comepletely undistracted besides being
      attacked, so if one of them dies before the magic is cast, that means the
      magic attack will not be performed or when one of the twins are silenced in
      the middle of the process or when they are hit with any other negative
      status effects.
    
    
    ========================================================
    FLARE-- MP Consumption: 10           Target: Enemy (all)
    ========================================================
      This is your basic attack, but judging by its name it might sound like
      a FIRE attack but more really it is a weaker version of NUKE. You can
      only hit one target with this magic attack and the target is random.
      Also this attack can be reflected back by a WALL and this will drain 10
      HP from both Palom and Porom.
    
    ========================================================
    COMET-- MP Consumption: 20           Target: Enemy (all)
    ========================================================
      Judging by its name you think its a weaker version of METEO, but
      however you are right! This is the stronger of the two attacks. This
      attack cannot be blocked by a WALL and will hit all enemies doing a ton
      of damage early on. This attack can be quite costly on the MP side early
      on as it will drain 20 MP from both Palom and Porom and there is a
      one-in-three chance of the two casting the magic.
    
    
    =============================================================================
    --------------------------- [ Weapons and Armors ] --------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
      Throughout the game you will find amny weapons on the way and also in
      shops. But obviously like in most RPGs the better weapons are the ones
      you obtain and find yourselves. However not everybody can be equipped
      with the same weapon and every weapon has its disadvantage except for
      maybe few weapons.
    
    
    =============================================================================
    ------------------------------- [ Swords ] ----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
      Swords in this game are used by the Dark Knight and the Paladin, swords
      are powerful and quick.

      are not very strong in strength however, but you can raise the attack
      power by putting the Bow in the opposite hand that the person is normally
      using. For example say Rosa is right handed, that means you would put the
      Bow on her left hand, just think about it. Would you be able to launch a
      arrow with full force if the bow was on your main hand and your arrow on
      your opposite hand?

    -------------------------------- [ Darts ] ----------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
      Darts can only be used by EDGE in his DART command. Some of the weapons
      in the game are rather weak, but when used as a DART they can become twice
      as powerful. However once you throw that item you cannot bring it back
      again. Not just BOOMERRANGs or STARs can be used as DARTs but SWORDs,
      KNIVEs, BLADEs, and SPEARs can be used as well. Also take note that the
      Attack power of the other weapons changes. For example an AVENGER sword
      has a 105 attack power rating, but when throw the attack power can be 106
      or higher. Throwing your weapon never lowers the attack power of the
      weapon except for the IMP sowrd.

    ---------------------------- [ Armors and Gear ] ----------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
      Well like in all RPGs armors play a key role to your success. Think of
      them as shock absorbers, they reduce the damage taken and can sometimes
      completely nullify most elemental attacks with the proper armor on. However
      sometimes you may find armors that boost up your defense about twenty
      points and you think that all is well right? Wrong. That armor you are
      wearing might have an apparent weakness against attacks, like if you were
      wearing the FIRE armor and you were in the underworld, that means you would
      suffer about twice the damage than your other party members. Also take into
      affect of how much magic defense each armor has, and if your fighting with
      an armor that has high defense but very low magic defense, you can find
      yourself in dire need to switch armors or other protective gear.
    
    
    =============================================================================
    ------------------------------- [ Shields ] ---------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
      Not everybody is able to equip shields. Shields are essential for the
      stronger characters to defend themselves. Basically anybody who can equip
      a shield should be put up front.
    
      NOTE: THERE IS NO DARKNESS SHIELD IN THE GAME, DESPITE THE FACT THAT
            THERE IS DARKNESS EQUIPMENT FOR EVERYTHING ELSE!

      ** This ring should not even be bothered to aquire. Most likely if you do
      try you won't have the ring until the Dark Knight is out of your party.
      The CURSED ring hits the wearer with many negative status effects like
      SILENCE, SLEEP, TOAD, PIG, POISON, STONE, and even a count down timer. The
      RIBBON can counter act the effects of all these except the TIMER.
    
      *** This ring is very rare, I think its about a 1-32 chance that you will
      achieve this ring and another 1-32 chance that the FATAL EYEs will drop it.
      It took me hours to find out what it was, ever since I saw the name in the
      manual I was just puzzled as to how to get this. Then I fought two FATAL
      EYEs after the battle and voila!

    ------------------------------ [ Game Tricks ] ------------------------------
    =============================================================================
    
      These are only the tricks and secrets that I have squandered around the
      game, the game contains very little of them since its an RPG, but there
      still here.
    
    
    =============================================================================
    ------------------------ [ Infinite Item Duplication] -----------------------
    =============================================================================
    
      This is the trick that should be in every FF4 FAQ. Here you can duplicate
      any items you wish, also this works in any time of the game, from the
      beginning to the end of the game. You can trade it in for GOLD or just use
      your weapons or shields as darts. NOTE: YOU CAN ONLY DUPLICATE ITEMS THAT
      ARE IN YOUR LEFT AND RIGHT HANDS.
    
    -+- Here enter battle.
    
    -+- when the battle starts, go to an empty slot in your item box hit "A"
    
    -+- Select a weapon or shield with the "A" button and put it in a empty slot.
    
    -+- Finish the battle or run away, it doesn't matter.
    
    -+- After the battle select the weapon or shield that you put in the empty 
        slot and put it back in the CHARACTER'S HANDS YOU SELECTED FROM.
    
    -+- Here you will see two of the same weapon or shield in your character's
        hand. Now click that weapon or shield again and put it in an empty slot.
    
    -+- Now click on that SAME WEAPON OR SHIELD again and put it back in your
        character's hand. Now you have the same weapon in the character's hand
        and the other duplicate in your inventory!
    
    
                                 ----------------------
                                 SKIP SEALED CAVE EVENT
                                 ----------------------
    
      Here right after you have defeated GOLBEZ in the Dwarf's Castle you will
      be back in the room with the King of Dwarves. After your conversation have
      Rydia use WARP and you will be in the crystal room of the Dwarves and you
      will see the Crystal. Actually its the Crystal in the Sealed Cave. Once you
      have the crystal go inside the Sealed Cave and before you can enter the
      locked door the scenario with Kain takes place. After that you do not need
      to go into the Sealed Cave.
    
    
                                    -------------
                                    Overworld bug
                                    -------------
    
      I still can not get this thing to work, basically because I have not
      tried yet. This is a pretty neat bug, here is how Rey explains it:
    
      "The buggy overworld trick:  This trick doesn't serve any real purpose
       other than to confuse others.  Walk around outside in a straight line and
       hit the triangle(or X if you have the SNES version) button after taking
       a few steps (while still holding the pad in the direction you are walking)
       to bring up the status window.  Release the pad and exit the status 
       window. If you repeat this a few times you should notice that some of the 
       time  your character takes an extra step as soon as you exit the status 
       window (what's really happening here is your character was caught mid-step 
       when  you hit the X button and they're simply finishing the step they 
       started).  Good!  Now that you've got the hang of this try using a tent or 
       cabin  (I think they were in FF2) while your character is caught in mid-
       step. When you awake (I think) your character will appear to be one square 
       away from the location your character is really occupying. Now hop into
       your airship and fly around a bit.  The overworld will start to get 
       buggy and you'll start seeing scenery in incorrect locations (it gets
       really extreme at times).  You might try and set things up so that when 
       you do this a normal piece of land appears to be an ocean and land the 
       airship there to make it appear as if your character is walking on
       the ocean!"
    
    
                                   -------------
                                   Other Summons
                                   -------------
    
      Here you can basically get three other summons in the game, which
      includes an IMP, BOMB, and MAGE. You can get these summons by fighting
      the monsters that gives them to you, like if you want an IMP summon you
      would fight IMPs. The strange thing with this is that you can possibly
      get the IMP summon before meeting up with Rydia! However as reported by
      Rey this takes a lot of patience to do and no, you do not need a Game
      Genie for this.
    
      That's about it. That's all I know. If you have any questions about this
      or you wish for me to make it any clearer than it already is, then drop
      me a line and I will be happy to answer whatever question you may have.
