XIV.   Credits/ Copyright

This is my first FAQ so don't blame me for mistakes. But all of the demo CD is here now.
I'll try to make as little spoilers as possible. My FAQ is soely LunarSSSC, so I have 
no knowldge of the Saturn or Sega CD version, and that means I don't know about the other
characters or am able to compare it to the other versions, sorry. That doesn't mean that 
this faq won't be as good as the others, if possible it will be better then the other four. 
Don't worry, I will put alot of effort into this.

Any help/comments will be greatly apreciated! Mail to the above address

The faq should look fine on notepad with 9 font.
You should not have to scrool left or right at all. These should line up:

p.s. does anyone know if there are any lunar newsgrous?
I.What's New/ Revisions

1.0   June 4, 1999
The game is finally out! I've added ALOT. The walkthough goes up to when you return to Vane
(not much, more next update ^.^), a new bromide section in equipment (I found alot!), a 
"stuff the game makes fun of" list, put in almost all of the new eq, and added Jessica, 
Kyle, & Mia to the character section. Also, TheFreak gave me demo only info. 
Thanks! I also changed the old walkthough a bit. Updated music list, help is needed
with it though. Flipped this list chronologically. Will have a FMV section next time. 
Added Dragon EQ in EQ section.
Ramus later tells you this, after Luna turns.... nevermind. I'm the first to have this!
Info in the new Secrets section

Just got the basis up.

II. Questions and Answers

 Q. What's a Grog loaf?
 A. I don't know


A. Dyne and the Dragon's Den     
Items: Herbs, Star Light, Dragon's Tear, Dragon Ring, Dragon Diamond, Dagger, Sling,
       Flame Ring, dragonfly wing, 250 silver
   The game starts out with you hearing Alex's voice talking about Dyne.
Soon Nall comes up to you and you see a Anime Sequence talking about Luna.
Try going down and a sequence of Ramusas comes up. When you finally get control
go to the top-right to see another sequence with Luna's singing and Alex's'
Ocarina joining in. She will yell at you for thinking of going to the Dragon's
cave, then decides to join you. Go to Alex's house to get money, a sling for Luna,
a dagger for Alex, herbs, the fire ring, and the all important Angel Tear. Keep it
on Nall so he can revive the others. Anyway, Begin out of the town and Ramuaus will
join. You're now on the world map. Loop around the mountians on the right and go to
the cave. The gorilla enemys here are kinda hard, leveling up on slimes would be a 
good idea. You should be level 6 by the time you get out, because the first few battles
you'll level up every time. By the way, if you like the game's music you can play it
all on Alex's Ocarina, which should be in his inventoty. The gorillas in the cave 
can smash the ice blocks to advance later on. You'll come to Quark's cave sooner
or later. You've probably been using AI mode in fights, but you shold use command
because the computer Alex will use Sword Dance every turn. After Quark gives him his
task head southwest. The gorilla will smash the ice if you stand in front of it, just
find the Dragon Ring. Bring it back to Quark and teleport out with a dragonfly wing
if you are low on health.

B. The Wierd Woods
Items: 1000 silver, herbs, antidotes
   Alot of things happen back at home. When you finally get to leave head to the
Wierd Woods with Ramus. He'll chicken out and you'll return to the village. After
some scenes with Luna you'll get to leave again, but before you do buy everything 
from the equipment store. Head to the Wierd Woods and Luna will sing the Fog away.
The battles here are very hard, so you should be at least lvl. 7 be the time you leave.
Wander far enough and Laike will come to the rescue. He attacks like six times in
a row at level 99 so you won't have any trouble. Loop around the bush on the left 
when you wake up.
New: The strategy guide excerpt in the instruction manual says that if you say no
there will be 3 fights. Say no the first and second times and except the third.
You'll get much more xp.

C. Saith
Items: Luck Wand

   Go south from the exit of the woods to get to Saike. There is new equipment that
is important later. Buy it all. Anyway, talk to everyone on the docks twice for info.
Then go to the bar and play a game of heads-or-tails with the guy in the top right.
After playing twice Ramusus will bet the dragon diamond. After beating him talk to him
again to get the luck wand. Equip it on Luna. Head northwest form the town and go to
the Old Hag's Woods.

D. Old Hag's Woods
Items: 400 silver, herbs, Mia's Bromide, Sea Chart

   I hated this part. By the time you get out of here be at least level 9. The enemys
here are very hard. Don't open any chests until the way back. The route all the way on
the right seems to be the shortest. When you get near the Hag's Hut you'll find Nash
trapped under a very primitave trap. Get him out and you'll get your fourth party member.
Just talk to the witch to get the sea chart. I don't think it matters if you have Luna
or Ramsus handle it. Go back to Saith afterwards, and level up your characters.

E. Boss! Sailine Slime
   Go to the dock and talk to the captian twice. You'll then go to the boss. He's 
actually really easy if you're at least level 9. All you have to do is have Luna
cast Cascade Song on Alex twice and have him use sword dance. It will do 200+
damage each time. His mucus attack is very annoying though. It traps a character
in slime, and unlike Final Fantasy 7, can't be attacked to get him/her out. If he 
traps Alex or Nash, the only people that will do any damage, it might be trouble
if you're low leveled.
New: The boss gets more powerful the stronger Alex is, and so do all the other bosses.

F. The End for now
   Now you'll see an FMV sequence and the game will end. Anyway, as soon as the game
comes out you can use your game save still. Also be sure that I'll have the rest of
this FAQ ready as soon as I get it! Extra: After you get to Saith, return to Burg
and Laike will be at Daine's Monument. Also search Luna's bed.

NEW! From TheFreak: Two demo only things were put in. Laike being at Dyne's monument,
and a typo that someone says in Saith if you bring Nash there after finding him but
before going into the witches hut.

A.The Boat
Items: Soap (1000 silver)

   If you don't have the demo CD or just started playing use the above walkthough to get
here. Anyway....You are on the boat to Meribia. Talk to everyone on the deck and decend
inside. It you have the money buy a bar of soap. Later in the game it will show you 
some almost nude scenes.... there are only 2 other in the game (for free). Anyway,
go into your bedroom and talk to Luna twice. You'll go to sleep. During the night 
you'll hear the wonderful Boat Song (lyrics next update). Then you'll wake up. Then
go to the deck. Talk to a crew member for a titanic joke. Then go to the mast.

Items: None

    Nash leaves the group and goes to black rose street when you enter the city, and Ramus
goes to sell the diamond. You and Luna are left to explore. Buy the new eq (and if you have the cash, buy a fire cane for Nash when you get him. It also uses fireball spell during battle if
used as an item) for everyone and when ready go to see Ramus at the big store. There are
chests here but you can't open them. Talk to Ramus and then go west of town. Then go to the
western most building and talk to Nash. There is alot of spoilers I could tell you but I won't.
Then go to the castle and talk to Hell Mel himself. You'll fight!

Boss!  Hell Mel
Not that hard. Use vigor and then keep using Sword Dance. You get 100 xp if you win.

Item: Star lights

   Go back and talk to Ramus again. He sells the diamond (but you don't get the cash)
and the salesman runs away. Follow him though the sewers! You have to pess buttons there
to lower bridges. When you get a choice oh a bunch of paths take the second from the left
then after pressing both buttons there go back and take the second from the right. When
you get get to a staircase perpare for another boss!
Boss! Auqa Lizard
   This time it is a bit harder. You should be at least level 15.
Use vigor and Cascade Song on Alex, and then have him Sword Dance. Ramus should have
everyone's items in his inventory. Keep using sword dance until he dies!
This might take a couple tries. He has a flame attack and a tail whip I

   Ramus takes over the store and leaves your party. You get 500 silver from the guy 
though. Nash congratulates you and tells you to go to Vane.

D.Athena's Shrine and the Cave of Trials
Items: None   

   After talking to Mel again exit the town. Go down-right until Nash talks. Then go to
the Transmission Spring (the thing south of you). The guy says you need papers. Go to
Athena's Shire and go to the top room to meet Phacia. She'll give you the papers.
Return to the spring and give the guy the papers. He'll say you have to go though
the Cave of Trials, an are where items can't be used.
   It's just you and Luna there. The first guy will heal you and there are more guys to heal
you on the way. Level up a bit while you have free healing. Just wonder around and take 
all the stairways. Soon there will be a floor with alot of people. That means you 
are very close to the boss. Upstairs will lead you to him.

Boss! Truffle Troubler
   He's really not so hard. As usual, use vigor and cascade song on Alex. Have him keep using
sword dance and Luna using tranquil song. With that sword dance should do at least 200 damage.

Items: None

   Welcome to Vane, the floating city of magic. Many people study to become mages
at the Magic Guild here. There is alot of new eq (equipment) here. The only thing
that is the same is fire canes. Enter the Magic Guild and Nash takes Luna on a tour.
Many things happen now. I won't spoil it though. In the end you're asked to go to Lann.
One more thing. Eariler, when you were controlling only Alex, you have to go to Mia's room.

F.Nanza Pass
Items: Herbs and Silver

   Watch out for fake chests. They can confuse your party. Just head left and fight enemies.
Here as with alot of other places the bees are annoying but give you the most xp.
Then you'll arrive at Nanza Pass itself. It's not much of a town. Try to exit in the west
and the guard will stop you. He says you have to talk to Kyle. Go to where he was (top right
of the catwalk) and a guy will tell you where to go from there.
   After you can go through the gate go left. I think there are the same bad guys. Go left
and out the gate to get to Lann.

Items: Silver Light (in locked chest)

   Not so much to do here. Just go to the elder's house and you'll meet Jessica. As usual,
A anime sequence will play when you meet a new important character. You'll get a mission to
check out the Fake Dragonmaster. Go to the docks and talk to the eyepatch guy there. He'll
lend you his boat so you can get to the island.
   When you get there you'll be in a swamp. The blueish patches of water here hurt you when
you stand in them. There is another Healing Ring here. The enemies here aren't hard, but 
something new is that the fish monsters grew legs and can now chase you around!
   It won't take too long to find Old Fakeo himself. He summons his err.... dragon,
and attacks you.
   Boss! Killer Toad?
A pattern is emerging if you haven't noticed. As usual, cascade song Alex, vigor, sword dance.
Really not much new yet. Nash can just use his usual lightning. Toadman can use attacks and
fire. Jessica is a great healer that has the same moves as Luna.
   He'll give up and leave.  Walk back or if Jessica has the exit Litancy use it.

H. Return to Vane
Items: None

   See you here next update!

V. Music

Song Lyrics

Opening Song, Sang by Luna
In your dreams, magical thoughts, all things are real, unless you dream there not!
In your dreams love is the plot carried on wings of hope...

Each of our souls, intertwine when we do. Instantly we see it,
the time to go and be it when everything in pinned on a whole.

Let rise the dreams of your heart, that innocent youth, careless and kind
free to roam the breeze in love, only when two brilliantly shine as one!
