                    Deciples of Gaia
    
    
    Ok first let me let you people know that this is my
    first FAQ. But fear not, For the reason I 
    dont write many FAQs is this damn addicting game. I
    spend to much damn time on it and I find
    it sad that there is no decent FAQ for it. Im assuming
    you have played this game and understand
    it. Therefor Im writing about the bones of the game
    first. but please dont doubt the man who has
    to much free time on his hands. Since i am the
    greatest Master of Monsters player of all time
    it would help you greatly to read this entire FAQ.
    Enjoy.

      DUMB THINGS ABOUT THIS GAME YOU SHOULD KNOW 
    
    
    Well for starters. The AI was better 10 years ago on
    the original Master of Monsters.
    The monsters in this game just walk in a straight line
    towards your boss leaving the only fun
    to be had in VS mode against a friend.
    
    But i will give you all the tips to bash the computer
    and get the strongest army.
    
    Attacking: Well although the computer wont attack
    unless cornered or you just happen to be
    in the monsters path. Occasionally you will have to
    fight. The computer will always give priority
    in attacking from its left hex and continuing
    clockwise. Unless your master is a choice of course
    
    Moving: Always in a straight line and doesnt put much
    thought into it. Also the monsters dont 
    aim for towers ( WTF!?!?!?) , So dont expect to be
    outflanked.
    
    Percent to hit: This has to be the poorest programming
    Ive ever seen. Basically the % values mean
    nothing. In the beginning of every "Turn" The computer
    selects a number from 10 - 90 ...
    Any % below this number misses , Anything above will
    hit. This will continue until the rare 
    occasion that you miss when you should have hit. In
    this instance nothing else will hit for the 
    rest of this turn ... Trust me ... Not even with 90% ,
    You can attack wildly until it changes 
    back. Or just wait till the next turn.
    
    Monster Duplication: Quite simple. Just use VS mode
    and load two identical games. Select the
    "Prize Monster" as the guy you wanna duplicate. Once
    you win (doesnt matter which team) you save
    and Ta Da! ... a duped monster. You can also use this
    method to transfer an army to a relatively
    new game , And send them through it again. (that takes
    a while with a 30 monster army)
    
    Tower Items: Well its true you can find items in the
    towers. Unfortunately its as rare as a Golem.
    But when it does happen quickly grab as many towers as
    possible. Its the same as the attack %
    When its working it works well. NOTE* your MUCH more
    likely to get items the earlier in the game.
    
    How to Make the Game Play Better?: Buy the original
    for Sega Genesis.
    
                   ITEMS ITEMS ITEMS ITEMS 
    
    Ill only list the important items here.
    
    Life seed/grass/water/fruit...- Raises a monsters
    permanent HP permanently. Very useful.
    
    Wisdon seed/fruit...- Raises a monsters INT
    permanently. Great for magic users.
    
    Wind Seed...- Raises the AG of one monster
    permanently. I only wish it was common.
    
    Magic/Star/Moonrings... Raises a monsters MP
    permanently. Good for freshly evolved monsters who
    had no need for MP before their evolution.
    
    Gaia's Sword: Adds 25 damage to direct attacks of a
    monster. Good for monsters using multiple 
    direct attacks such as an Octopus or a Wragnor.
    
    Magic Arm: Doubles magic attack damage from a monster.
    
    Power Arm: Doubles long range attack power from a
    monster.
    
    Strong Arm: Doubles direct attack power from a
    monster.
    
    Master's arm: Doubles direct , long range and magic
    attack power for a single monster.
    
    Magic Stone: Gives a single monster a lvl up. Good for
    a quick evolution.
    
    Gaia's Stone: Raises a monster 10 lvls!!!!! The rarest
    of the rare.
