your party and run away fast. You get valuable treasures and a lot of 
experience and gold by defeating them. So now you must be prepared and

.4. ITEMS & EQUIPMENT---------------------------------------------------->
==========================================================================

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I. ITEMS----------------------------------------------------------------->
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
     1. Magic Signet Stone: This item blocks your opponent's moves for 
three turns. It's located at the swamp in the Marshlands - you have to 
take the little boat and then go left to the second screen. It will be in 
one of the boxes. * This item is the most important. You won't be able to 
kill any special monster with out it, except if you use a sachet*

     2. Sachet: This item kills any of the special monsters instantly; it 
does 10 hp of damage, and all the special monsters have 4-6 hp. You can 
get this item the first time at Hellena's Prison (second visit) in a box 
before a fight with a boss. Defeat the boss and he will give you another 
sachet. The last one is located at the valley of corrupted gravity. If you 
want more you can fight Piggies at the home of Giganots, but they rarely 
drop it.

     3. Poison Needle: This item poisons your opponent. You can buy it at 
the third and fourth disk in many towns and on the Moon.

     4. Panic Bell: This item confuses your opponent. You can buy it at 
Ulara and on the Moon.

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

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
II. EQUIPMENT------------------------------------------------------------>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

     1. Bandit's Ring: Found in home of Giganots, and bought from various 
towns later in the game. This item increases your speed by 20 points.

     2. Bandit's Shoes: I only have one of these. I think you can get them 
after a fight with a boss at the home of Giganots. This item increases 
your speed by 20 points.

     3. Magical Grieves: You can buy them from Ulara later in the game. 
This item increases your speed by 10 points.

     4. Dancer's Shoes: This item is for the female characters only. You 
can buy this item from Denningard later in the game. It increases your 
speed by 20 points.

     5. Wargod's Amulet: You find them at the beginning of the game. I 
think that the cursed jar or some other monster near the yellow bird drops 
it. This item increases your attack hit-rate by 20%.

     6. Sallet: You can buy them from Bale and you also come equipped with 
it from the beginning of the game. This item increases your attack hit-
rate by 10%. 


==========================================================================
.5. SPECIAL MONSTERS----------------------------------------------------->
==========================================================================

To defeat the special monsters you need to equip all the members of your 
party with the right equipment and have the right items in hand. I suggest 
that your party have the following characters: Dart, Shana and Rose or 
Haschel. I also suggest that you fight three or four random battles before 
the fight with the special monster, so that the special monster doesn't 
run away at the beginning of the battle, or cast a powerful magic on you. 
Here are all the special monsters and how to defeat them:
     
     A. Yellow Bird: It is located on the road to the Indles Castle 
capital Bale. When you start the battle with it, do 1 hp of damage to it, 
and then, with the next player use the magic signet stone. After that, 
just keep attacking it until it is dead. If you managed to defeat it, you 
will receive 300 gold and sometimes it drops an Elude Cloak. It has 4 hp.

     B. Cursed Jar: It is located on the little road between Lohan and the 
Dragon Nest. Do the same process you did to the yellow bird. Sometimes, 
when you start the battle it may cast a physical attack barrier, so just 
keep attacking it until you do 1 hp of damage. After that, do the rest of 
the process done to the Yellow Bird. If you managed to defeat it, you will 
receive 300 experience points. It has 4 hp.

     C. 00 Parts: It is located on the long road near the commercial city 
of Lohan. When you start off the battle, do 1 or 2 hp of damage to it, and 
then let the other character use the magic signet stone. After that, just 
keep attacking it until it dies. If you managed to defeat it, you will 
receive 600 gold. It has 4 hp.

     D. Blue Bird: It is located on the road between the valley of 
corrupted gravity and the home of Giganots. When you get into battle with 
it, do 2 hp of damage to it. Next, use the magic signet stone. After that 
just keep attacking it until it dies. If you managed to defeat it, you 
will receive 1000 experience points. It has 5 hp.

     E. Treasure Jar: It is located on the road between the undersea 
cavern and the city that faces it. You can't do damage to it except if you 
use dragoon magic. So, the first thing you'd want to do when you start the 
battle is to transform into dragoon with the first character, and use the 
first magic type on the list because it doesn't cost much mp and it will 
do the same damage as the other ones. Next, if it used a magical attack 
barrier use the magic signet stone. If it didn't, transform into dragoon 
with the other character and use magic to do another 1 hp of damage. After 
that, use the magic signet stone and keep casting magic on it until it 
dies. If you managed to defeat it, you will only receive a Ruby Ring which 
you can sell for a lot of gold. It has 5 hp.

     F. Red Bird: It is located on the road that leads to two ways; one to 
Denningard and the other one to the Glacier. You can't do damage to it 
except if you use dragoon magic. But, it doesn't cast a magical attack 
barrier, so let the first two characters use dragoon magic on it then let 
the third one use the magic signet stone. After that, just keep using 
magic on it until it dies. If you managed to defeat it you will receive 
1000 gold plus a Phoenix Plume. It has 5 hp.

     G. Lucky Jar: It is located on the road between the desert in the 
Death Frontier and Ulara *Sometimes, you will face a Rainbow Bird but most 
of the times it will be a Lucky Jar*. First of all, have 2 poison needles 
in your item grid, and then get into battle with it. Next, use one poison 
needle on it and let it do 2 hp of damage to itself. After that, use the 
magic signet stone, and just keep guarding until it dies by poisoning. If 
you managed to defeat it, you will receive 1000 experience points, 300 
gold and a Moon Serenade. It has 6 hp.

     H. Rainbow Bird: It is located on the road to Rouge while you are on 
the Queen of Fury. First of all, have at least 3 panic bells in your item 
grid and then get into battle with it. Use 1 of the panic bells you have 
on it and let it do 4 attacks - To itself or to your party - and then use 
another panic bell. After that, just keep guarding until it dies by 
confusion (This is the hardest battle of all, so if you don't have the 
patience just use a sachet and it will die instantly). If you managed to 
defeat it, you will receive a whopping 3000 experience points. It has 4 
hp. 

     I. Triceratops: It can be found on the Moon. It is on the way to the 
place where you fight the Darkness Dragon. The Triceratops is different 
from the other special monsters. It doesn't have 4-6 hp; it has 6000+ hp. 
It doesn't run away from the battle. You don't need to use a magic signet 
stone or a sachet to defeat it. So, you need your strongest attack and 
defense weapons to beat it - It's not that tough, the Rainbow Bird is 
harder -. When you start off the battle, just keep attacking it with all 
your power and heal your party if they reached red status. If you managed 
to defeat it, you will receive 2000 experience points and 100 gold, so 
GOOD LUCK!
