========================================================= LUNAR 2: ETERNAL BLUE (COMPLETE) English Release BROMIDE GUIDE (In Chronological Order) v.2.2 by Ruk Chan firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.disc13.com ========================================================= INTRO NOTE: The only locations where you will find updated versions of this FAQ would always be first and foremost in GameFAQs and my website disc13.com. If you got this FAQ elsewhere, please make sure you have the right version before you email me! Version 3.0 - March 02, 2002 Ahrk! Sorry it took me more than a year to edit this. I've already been getting too many emails asking me to put up the 23rd_bromide_information. I've just been too busy with work, wedding preparations (hey, I wanna be a happy bride!) and three of my network websites namely, hentaineko.com, disc13.com, and animeokashi.com (anime okashi is actually owned by my cousin, but I help her out). Anyway, the addition to the bromide info is here. Courtesy of email@example.com. They call it Bromide X... Version 2.2 - January 15, 2001 Okay, I really have to put warnings on this FAQ because many people missed some of the bromides because they've read this FAQ too late. Version 2.1 - January 08, 2001 Whew, that was a long vacation! I'm sorry for those people who were left hanging on my last update. I actually finished the epilogue right after I submitted Version 2 to GameFAQs, and since I didn't want to stress CJayC further (he's trying to keep up with the holiday barage of GameFAQs stuff) by submitting another version just hours after, I thought I'd wait a few days. Anyways, I only updated the last bromide. Version 2.0 - December 31, 2000 At last! After that battle with the final boss, I'm finally able to list the last of the bromides. Most of them are in the Epilogue stage, however, so you will really have to beat the final boss in order to get them. Version 1.1 - December 28, 2000 Added bromide titles and captions Version 1.0 - December 27, 2000 Listing of Bromides incomplete as I am still in the first disc. I'll try to make this guide as complete as possible, but as of now, I'll just save my post at gameFAQs. ============================ CONTENTS ============================ I. Introduction II. Bromides during the normal game III. Bromides after the final battle (Epilogue) VI. Credits V. Disclaimer ============================ I. INTRODUCTION ============================ What are bromides? Well, they are pictures of the pretty women of Lunar. In Lunar 2, you will see different bromides of even the women of the first Lunar. There are even extra bromides of some of Lunar 2's most important men. This is quite nice for a change. Bromides don't really mean anything or add to your stats, unlike in Lunar 1 where they increase your stats a leeetle bit. They are still worth collecting, though. There are more bromides in Lunar 2, so this list will be longer than expected. One more difference between the bromide search in the two games is that, unlike in Lunar where you have to accomplish some certain pre-requisites in getting some of the bromides because here you can get the bromides by simply talking to some people. Anyway, on with the hunt! Note: If you find mistakes regarding the bromides, please don't hesitate to contact me at my email on top of this FAQ. ** IMPORTANT NOTE BEFORE YOU PROCEED ** I have arranged the bromides chronologically (as always) because this is the order that you can get them. Some of you might think I just arranged them this way because I'm a rigid person who must have to put everything in order, but that's not the reason. So as a tip, I would suggest whenever you visit a particular area or village, find the bromides immediately. As in, as soon as you land in that area, unless I say otherwise in my FAQ. The reason I was able to put up this guide is because when I play an RPG I just have to talk to every person, scan every area, examine every nook and crany and whatever place that looks suspicious. I guess it's my way of savoring every moment that I am away from the gruesome battlefield ^_- For those who have read this FAQ too late and missed some bromides, hmmm I wish I could help you but I accidentally deleted my game. I can't even watch my precious anime scenes or view my bromides ;_; ============================ II. THE NORMAL GAME BROMIDES ============================ 1. Lucia's Bromide 1 - Staring at the Sky LOCATION: Larpa EXACT: There's a man who stands by his house, just above the Althena Statue (you'll know it is him when you enter his house you'll find his wife and baby). When you wake up and find Lucia gone, go talk to this man. DESCRIPTION: Lucia is wearing a tight black suit and red cape. It seems like a beautiful day to be staring at the sky. 2. Jean's Bromide 2 - Dancing Queen LOCATION: Caravan after the Illusion Woods EXACT: After you rescue the crew of the Caravan from a gigantic venus flytrap monster, go talk to the girl who guards the pathway out of the Illusion forest. This path will be blocked at first, but when it's opened, that's the time you talk to her. DESCRIPTION: Looks like a poster of dancing Jean in all her charming glory. 3. Jessica's Bromide - Land Ho! LOCATION: Meribia EXACT: Go to the bar and talk to one of the guys there. DESCRIPTION: Jessica (of the first Lunar) riding a sailboat, looking unusually thinner than ever. 4. Lemina's Bromide 3 - Midnight Appraisal LOCATION: Meribia EXACT: Go to Ramus' shop (if you played Lunar 1, you'll be able to find it easily) and talk to Ramus' grandfather. He's the guy who keeps giving Lemina so much praises (it borders on being lecherous). Just keep talking to him and he'll eventually hand over the bromide. DESCRIPTION: Lemina checking out all her gold (as usual) in the middle of the night. 5. Lemina's Bromide 2 - Seaside Stroll LOCATION: Meribia EXACT: Examine the barrels at the back of Ramus' shop. Additional note about this bromide: I think you can only get this one if you've gotten the previous Lemina bromide. DESCRIPTION: Lemina playing on the beach. 6. Lemina's Bromide 1 - Sunset Breeze LOCATION: Vane EXACT: Examine the shelves where obviously Lemina's books lie (stuff about gold, money, her weird poetry). You might want to read all the books if you've played Lunar 1, if you're curious as to what happened with the previous heroes. I think the bromide is in the shelves are on the right, second row. DESCRIPTION: Lemina enjoying a good book while she sits on her window. 7. Mia's Bromide - Warm Tea, Good Read LOCATION: Transmission Spring Near Vane EXACT: Talk to the guy near the Althena Statue. There are only 2 people there anyways, so finding this bromide wouldn't be too hard. DESCRIPTION: Mia having tea on a good day. She looks a bit older and so much thinner. I think somebody ought to tell her to eat more. ============================ II. THE EPILOGUE BROMIDES ============================ The next group of bromides can be gotten during the Epilogue, after the final battle with Zophar. You'll just notice that some treasure chests that weren't there before, suddenly start popping up. They're also quite easy to find because you'll be stumbling upon most of them while looking for the rest of your party members. (You kind of want to regroup because there's a new quest you may want to finish.) 8. Mauri's Bromide 1 - Afternoon Picnic LOCATION: Raculi EXACT: Mauri's house. Speak to Ronfar first to get him to join you in your new quest. After this, speak to Mauri. They'll have that ultra-mushy ewwy conversation and Mauri will give Ronfar her bromide as a means to remember her by (during your quest). DESCRIPTION: Mauri is walking near a stream, carrying a fruit basket. Very pretty sight. 9. Mauri's Bromide 2 - In Leo's Footsteps (Sibling Rivalry) LOCATION: Raculi EXACT: Behind Mauri's house is a chest that wasn't there before. Open it. DESCRIPTION: This is so weird... Mauri masquerading as Mystere (her brother Leo's alternate ego). 10. Jean's Bromide 3 - Long Hard Night LOCATION: New Carnival EXACT: At the North Carnival, talk to the guy on the right of the fence, and he'll sell you the bromide. DESCRIPTION: Sexy Jean falling asleep after a hard days work. 11. Jean's Bromide 4 - Martial Awe LOCATION: New Carnival EXACT: Also at the North Carnival, there's a new treasure chest at the back of one of the balloons. DESCRIPTION: Jean is sparring with poor Hiro? I pity the guy... (I don't think he stands a chance without his sword.) 12. Lucia's Bromide 3 - Blue Starlight LOCATION: Mystic Ruins EXACT: One of the pixies there will give you this bromide. It looks like they like Lucia very much. DESCRIPTION: Lucia sleeping like a baby. 13. Ghaleon's Bromide - Secret Garden Moment LOCATION: Mystic Ruins EXACT: Remember the room where you saw a record of the final battle of the first Lunar? That's where you'll find this bromide. DESCRIPTION: What a sweet moment! Ghaleon shows his soft side here, spending quiet time with his pretty little pixies in the garden. 14. Luna's Bromide - Dreamy Weaver LOCATION: Vane EXACT: In the lower left house, there's a couple who were once part of Nall's kiddie group (once lived in Taben's peak). Talk to the woman and she'll give you this "lucky charm" which originally came from Nall. DESCRIPTION: Luna (from Lunar 1) stitching some patterns on a beautiful cloth. 15. Borgan's Bromide - Rub-A-Dub-D'ohh! LOCATION: Vane EXACT: Enter the Ausa mansion (Lemina's home) and go to the throne room. Talk to Borgan. DESCRIPTION: This is really weird! Who would want to see a picture of Borgan taking a bath???? 16. Nall's Bromide - Fishy Fantasies LOCATION: Taben's Peak EXACT: On the room before Nall's quarters, talk to one of the kids repeatedly. To be sure, talk to them all, if some of the kids just repeat the same thing, move to the next, until you find one who talks about something different each time. There are only 3 of them inside the room, so you won't have a problem. DESCRIPTION: A cute picture of Ruby sleeping on Nall's tummy. They're both dreaming about fish. This is soo sweet. Those two should end up together (heh). 17. Lucia 2 - Another Great Day LOCATION: Taben's Peak EXACT: Remember there was a baby in a cradly on Taben's Peak. Go to that baby and you'll find that it has a Lucia bromide with it. Everybody will wonder where the baby got it from. DESCRIPTION: Lucia opening the window to let in the glorious rays of the sun. She's now wearing the short shorts that was given to her during the Carnival escapade. 18. Lucia 4 - Splendor in the Grass LOCATION: Taben's Peak EXACT: Enter the room where Nall locked you up during your first meeting. There's now a new chest there. DESCRIPTION: Lucia is enjoying the day while she's sitting on the grass. 19. Lemina 4 - Steamy Scene LOCATION: Meribia EXACT: Go to Ramus' shop again and enter his Hall of Horrors. Actually you'll find the bromide easier if you use the passage in Lunn's Dojo. There's another new treasure chest (actually there were other treasure chests I wasn't able to get here during my first visit, because I was dodging enemies but I'm pretty sure that new treasure chest wasn't there the last time). DESCRIPTION: A better version of Borgan's bromide. This time it's Lemina in the bath tub. 20. Mystere's Bromide - Shining Justice LOCATION: Takkar Village EXACT: Talk to the old man standing near the gate of the top part of Takkar Village. DESCRIPTION: Mystere in three different poses. It's ironic how a rigid guy like Leo could actually be this hilarious! (He's my favorite btw, because he's cute.) 21. Jean 1 - Gypsy Feast LOCATION: Horam EXACT: On the left of the Blue Dragon Dojo is a house which belongs to the Drunken Karate practitioners. Talk to the perverted old man (who obviously has the hots for Jean), and you'll get your bromide. DESCRIPTION: Jean sure looks like she could eat all that food, what with being a dancer and a martial artist at the same time! She's wearing her ultra sexy dancer's dress. 22. Bromide still being located. I saw in one of the forums that there's a 22nd bromide in Lionhead (the lion-shaped sanctuary that you couldn't enter during your first mission or regular quest). I went there and literally got slowly tortured and eventually annihilated. So at the moment, I'm trying to get enough strength so I could locate the exact location of this bromide. My boyfriend told me that this is the last bromide......READ UPDATE BELOW BEFORE EMAILNG ME ABOUT THIS BROMIDE. If I got lazy, I'd probably just have to borrow his brother's memcard and list it here, but I'd rather award myself _after_ my own hard work. I'd rather not spoil the fun, doncha think?.....READ UPDATE BELOW BEFORE EMAILING ME ABOUT THIS BROMIDE. * UPDATE ON BROMIDE #22* 22. Hiro's Bromide - Adventurer's Club LOCATION: Lionhead EXACT: On the top floors of Lionhead, where there are no more annoying enemies, just before the boss battle. DESCRIPTION: Hiro deserves a bromide too... Hiro and Ruby running out of a crumbling dungeon? They must be treasure hunting again. NOTE: Silly me didn't realize how easy Lionhead is, even at low levels. All you have to do is go first to the cave North of Horam and get that special item that makes all your party's attacks higher. Put that on Jean and have her cast the spell on her first turn. Then have Hiro cast Triple Sword attack on the following types of enemies: (a) The Big Black Ball - Triple Sword is the only thing that kills it fast (b) Mummy Leader - I dunno what the name of that group is, but if you encounter a group of claymen, look for their leader (the one with a different color from the others). Just kill that and you're home free. You don't have to worry about the rest of them 'cause they die after that leader dies. 23. BROMIDE X - This is courtesy of firstname.lastname@example.org: "Hi. I was reading your FAQ for Lunar 2 on GameFAQs.com, and I thought I'd inform you that there is one more hidden bromide in the game. Bromide X can be found in the Epilouge in the curtain behind Borgan and Maria in Vane. You can get it by going up to the curtain and pressing O, X, O, X, O, and so on until you hear a treasure chest open. Interestingly, you can get a hint of its location in the Vane library on a bookshelf on the far wall, second from farthest right that Hiro proclaims to have jelly stains all over it. Anyway, just thought you might want to know. Your FAQ was very helpful to me. Thanks!" Well, thank you too. My game was deleted but at least I get additional information thru emailers. *sniff* ============================ IV. CREDITS ============================ Credits will have to go to the forum people of Disc 13 for hinting (without giving spoilers or exact locations) of the bromides. Special thanks to the creators of Lunarhope.Com. I don't think I could have finished the labyrinths and mazes and dungeons in this game without their guidance. Also to my sister, who loves experimenting different scenes in Lunar 2 with me. She's the only who can stand reading the lengthy dialogues of most of the village people I've had to talk to. ============================ V.
