   Also this is a Walkthrough for the Hard Mode. I recommend that you play
through on Normal before this. Hard isn't that Hard but, still if it is your
first time playing through it may be tough. Hard will allow you to learn
more about the story and get new characters. 

   Another Quick note, The Order of Events for this walkthrough may be
different then the order that you find them. It all has to do with your
Seal Rating.

   As you start the game the camera will slowly travel down and you will
hear bells chiming. You will then see Valkyrie in a field, she comments
about how it certainly is Nice. You will then see leaves blowing around 
as Valkyrie walks along a beaten path while the credits go by. Eventually
she will arrive at an Ancient Castle. Now walk forward and you will see a 
woman at the enterence. When you get close enough she will speak. She will
welcome you to Valhalla. Here name is Phlia. She will say that She and her
sister Frei missed her alot. Valkyrie then says that it has been a long 
time and asks if she doing well. Phlia will answer yes, then she says that
Odin wants her inside. Valkyrie will then go inside.

   Valkyrie will say that she has arrivied and kneel. Frei will tell her
to stand up. She then warps down to Valkyrie and hugs her. Frei will talk
about how its been a while since they've seen each other and say that she
missed Valkyrie. Valkyrie says she also missed Frei. Odin then notes Rennas
Valkyrie as one of the 3 Goddess of Fate. He then continues by saying that
needs some help with the World of Destruction "Ragnarok". Valkyrie wonders
about Ragnarok. Odin then says that with the Van Race ready to make a move,
The Earth Gods are stuck in a fairly difficult situation. So he wants you
to goto the Lower World of Midguard and find Human Souls that can do fight
against them. Valkyrie says that sound like a very important job for 
herself, but she will do it. Odin then continues that once it has arrived
certain destruction is inevitable. Frei will then agree. Then a light will
emit from Valkyrie and she will then be in different clothers. After that
Frei adds that she is going too. Frei then continues saying that it should 
be a memoriable experience. After that Valkyrie and Frei warp out as the 
camera rises to the sky.

    The camera then fades in on Valkyrie and Frei on a Cliff. Valkyrie asks
if this is the world that humans inhabit. Frei answers yes, this is the
Midguard. And this is where their souls reside. Frei asks if she thinks
its nice. Valkyrie says she doesn't really have a sentimental feelings
about. It just looks like a bunch of land. Frei asks if that's so. Frei
then says that it's time for them to go. Valkyrie asks where to go now.
Frei asks Valkyrie about what she just said, and then wonders if she is 
going to have to teach her. Frei then Warps and then Valkyrie follows. They
both then reappear on the world map. Frei asks Valkyrie what can't she
hear. Valkyrie says she can't hear anything. Frei tells her that
she needs to use her power. Frei then tells her to open her eyes, 
concentrate her mind, and to empty her heart, and be very understanding.
The game will then tell you to press Start to listen to the Spirits, so
press Start. The world will then rotate around Valkyrie and she will hear
many different things and eventually tell you to goto Altoria. Valkyrie
is speechless after that. Frei asks if she heard that. Valkyrie will ask
what that was. Frei then tells Valkyrie that is her power. With it she
can listen to Humans Pain, Anger, and Wishes. And with that she can have
a good sense of the Soul. Frei continues by saying that Valkyrie must
get the Souls of dead human fighters. But Valkyrie is wondering how she is
going to choose who to take. Frei says that is a problem, so... Valkyrie
then inquires about the so. But Frei just says that they should start 
moving, then says that they will need to have hearts that understand 
humans. The both then warp out as the screen darkens. Then a message will
come up on the screen says "Heart of a Human...Do I even have a Heart?".

-----
Aluze
-----

   The screen will the come back up and you will see a brown haired Knight
kill a gorilla with an Ax. Then more soilders will run by and a man with a
giant sword will walk onto the screen. Rofar will then tell Aluze to please
hurry up. The camera will then move to the right and you will see two
soldiers down and four more soldiers facing off against a flying creature.
Soldier A will say this is frightening. Aluze then walks on the screen and
Soldier B notices. Aluze will say it is just a bother. Now move Aluze to 
the flying creature and just as you get there Rofar will walk up. Rofar will
say he is in this too. You will then enter battle. It is just a Lesser 
Harpy, and this will probably be the first time you mess with the battle
system. Also the Lesser Harpy has Combo Guard, so your first few attacks 
probably won't do anything, but all it takes is 3 rounds. The screen will 
then switch to a new location.

   You will see a simple house and a man paint. Aluze then walks in.
Roy will say that his brother startled him. Roy will then ask if Aluze
got injured. Aluze will say that he is fine. Aluze then walks over to where
his brother has been painting. Aluze asks if Roy has actually done 
anything besides painting that cat. Roy will then say that painting is 
doing something. Aluze asks how much the painting is worth. Roy says it 
isn't worth anything. Aluze then says how worthless it was. Roy then 
hesitintly asks his brother to quit fighting and killing. Aluze is taken
aback by the question and says that they would have no money and no food. 
Aluze then walks off and tells him that he should get a new interest. Then
a flashback occurs. Aluze is sitting on the table and asks his brother 
what he wants to eat. Roy will say that he isn't very hungry and for him 
to go get somthing himself. Roy then continues by saying that he is going
to goto bed early so he can get up and finsh painting the cat. Then it
comes back and Roy aplogizes for asking his Brother why he fights. Aluze
then says that he will leave his gold here. Aluze then puts a Gold Statue
on the table. Roy will then ask what the statue is. Aluze says it supposed
to be lucky. He got it in battle by killing the strongest people. Aluze
then continues up to bed and the screen fades. Then you hear a clinking
noise.

   An Elderly gentleman bends over to pick up a Scepter that fell on the
ground. Ronbelt will then tell the Princess that she needs to be more
careful with her stuff, saying that he has seen this staff cause some real
trouble. The Princess then shouts out Silence. Then adding that she is 
going to go see the Wind Ghost Soldiers. Ronbelt then asks the princess
what she is doing, saying that all he wants is for her to trust him. Sherad
then thinks it over as Ronbelt hands back the scepter and leaves. Now the
screen show the King and many knights kneeling. The kings is talking about
how there are special breed of people. And about how it all comes from the
heart. The King then says it is time to bring in their strongest warrior, 
Aluze. The screen then moves to where Aluze has been. Aluze then stands up.
The King then tells him to take his Money and Statue. Aluze then walks 
forward to where the King and Sherad are. Aluze then thanks the king for
his kind words, and says he tries to keep his heart clear, but thanks
the King for everything. Aluze asks himself why he is taking this. Aluze
then thinks this has to be some kind of a fraud. Azule then starts laughing.
The crowd then quiets down. Aluze then tells the King how pathetic this
was. The King asks what he is talking about. Aluze then asks the King if
he didn't really think he would know about the statue. The King is
shocked. Then Aluze lifts his sword and Sherad tells her father to get 
down, but Aluze was aiming at the Statue. Aluze then says that he has 
no interst in that. Sherad the yells at Aluze telling him he has no right
to speak to her Father the King that way. Sherad then add that she hopes he
dies a thousand times. Aluze then starts to leave and the cowering King 
gets up. Sherad yells for someone to stop him, but no one does. 

   You now see Sherad in her room. Sherad is wondering about the Commoner
Man and about how she can get rid of him in one poof. She then comes up
with an idea. You are now back in Aluze rooms and you can control him. Head
downstairs and to the door. You will then hear a knocking. A Girl will then
come in. Aluze will ask what she needs. The Girl will ask if he is Aluze. 
He then says that he is. The Girl then introduces herself as Shera... Aluze
then wonders about the name. The Girl then says its Sara. The Girl then 
says she is name Angela. Both are puzzled. Aluze then asks what she 
came for. "Angela" says she has a job for him. Roy asks if his
brother isn't really going to take it. Aluze is really thinking. The scene
then fades to the Main Street of Altoria.

   Aluze wants to know where he is going. "Angela" doesn't really know 
where to go here. Aluze then just suggest they go in the Chinese Restaurant.
The Waitress then shows up and asks for there order. Aluze will think this
entire thing is weird. "Angela" then tells the waitress that she will have
this and this and this and this... The Waitress will say "Angela" certainly
does have a craving for food. And this and this... Aluze stands up and asks
if she is going to eat the entire restuarant. "Angela" says she certainly
couldn't eat all of the food in the restuarant. Aluze then gets frustrated
and sits back down. He then asks what the job is. "Angela" then asks if 
they can talk about it after she's finshed eating. The screen will then
go black and tell you 30 Minutes Later... "Angela" will call for the 
Cook. The Waitress will ask what she needs. "Angela" will just repeat that
she needs to see the Cook. Aluze will get frustrated and say she should
stop acting like a King. The Head Cook will then walk on screen and ask
what she wanted. "Angela" will say the food tastes like Shit and say that
the meat is still alive. The Cook will explain that is how it is supposed 
to be. "Angela" will then start to complain about the soup. The Cook will 
then again explain that is how it is supposed to be. "Angela" will then 
asks if that is a chopped up monster, saying she doesn't want to eat a baby
Kraken. The Cook will then explain that its Squid. Anyways this keeps going
on and eventually "Angela" takes a drink of water and spits it out asking
what this is. Then she asks if they are trying to poison her. "Angela" then
says that she hopes the cook dies a thousand times, then falls down 
asleep. Aluze wakes up and notes that she drank Sake. The screen then
changes to Aluze house.

   Roy is asking if his brother is going to take the job. Aluze will say 
yes. Then "Angela" will roll over and her hat will fall off. Aluze will 
then be shocked noting that its Princess Sherad. Roy will tell his brother
he is going to bed. Aluze then says he will probably end up taking the job.
Aluze then tells his brother he hopes he feels better. Sherad will then
talk in her sleep and Aluze will wonder what she is saying. Eventually 
Sherad tells her father that she will make sure Aluze dies a thousand 
times. Aluze then sits on the bed and understands. The screen then fades
to the previous day as Aluze notes the reasons why Sherad wants revenge.
"Angela" will then wake up and wonder where she is. She will then asks
Aluze if he still wants the job. Aluze says he will. Sherad will walk out
of the room and Aluze will ponder the job.

   The scene will change to that of a bar, and an Agent in a black coat
walks coat walks in. Badluck will notice this and the Agent will take a
drink and walk over to Badluck. Badluck will ask what they need to talk
about. The Agent won't say anything. Badluck asks why the Agent didn't
say anything. The Agents says they need to speak quickly and tells Badluck
about his partner. Badluck says he doesn't need a partner. Eventually 
Badluck asks for 5000 extra. The Agent says its a deal. Badluck says that
was easy and then asks about his partner. The Agent will then leave. 
Badluck will then say he doesn't care if he has a partner so long as he 
gets paid. The screen will head back to Aluze house.

   You can now freely walk around town. But all you really need to do is
just go in and out of your house. When you go back in Roy will tell you
that the woman is here. The Agent then says she needs to speak with Aluze.
Roy will ask if this is about the job and Aluze says it is. Roy then asks
if he took it. Anyways after a while you will end up outside and Badluck
will greet you. Badluck then introduces himself. The Agents says they 
should stop talking and get going. Badluck agrees. Then the screen will go
black and Aluze will explain there travels. Eventually you will see Aluze
and Badluck travling on the road. Badluck says the only reason he took this
job is for the money, also the fact that Ronbelt wanted him to take it too.
Aluze will ask if its the same Altoria Minister Ronbelt. Badluck tells
Aluze to wait, and then he notes there are soldiers approaching. Aluze then
tells about the Knights and eventually one of the Knights will tell you to
Halt. One of the Knights runs up to the cart and Badluck tells him to wait.
Aluze then tells his thoughts and then tells Badluck to run. Badluck stops
and asks what that is. You will see Sherad as Aluze explains it is Sherad.

   Now you will see Badluck and Aluze resting with Badluck explaining about
how they had to run all night. Badluck will tell about how Ronbelt betrayed
them. Aluze is about to slash at Badluck, but he tells Aluze that he was
betrayed too. Aluze will then ask about how he knew about the knights and
Ronbelt. Badluck explains that Ronbelt is actually a Valnova Spy. Aluze
can't believe it, but Badluck says its true. Ronbelt wanted to have the
Princess moved to Valnova so he could start a fight. You then hear Aluze
mull over his plan to kill Ronbelts and then you hear Sherad ask Aluze to
help her. The screen will be back to where it was before and you will hear
a man shout out. Aluze will grab his sword and Badluck will wonder what 
that was. Badluck will then walk to the next screen and ask what that thing
is. You will then see a Red Beast with Two Knight dead, with one Knight 
holding it off. That Knight will then ask for help. Aluze will ask that
Knight about Sherad. The Knight will explain that Ronbelt did somthing to
the Princess. Badluck asks if that is the Princess. Aluze will talk about
what Ronbelt has done to everyone. After that Badluck explains that is a
Ghoul Pounder. Aluze asks what a Ghoul Pounder is. Badluck explains that
it is a human changed into a monster and that only Necromancers can do it.
Aluze wonders if Ronbelt is a Necromancer. The screen will shift to the
beast and you will see 4 ghosts surround it. Aluze then thinks about
Angela. Badluck wonders why he is thinking about Sherad and then says this
is Altoria's Problem and then leaves. 

   After this Aluze explains he doesn't have the personality to run away. 
So you then see him run towards the Ghoul Pounder, but when he gets there
Valkyrie and Frei warp in. Valkyrie quickly dispatches 2 of the Ghosts. 
Aluze then tells you to leave, but then says it can't be. Valkyrie tells
the human to leave, that he can't fight and he should watch from the path.
Aluze wonders if this is the War Goddess Valkyrie. Anyways Aluze tells his
thought then and when he is done you enter battle with the Ghoul Pounder.

   The Ghoul Pounder isn't hard either. Just takes about 5/6 rounds and 
it's over. After the battle Aluze will be walking along the path and 
discussing about how he thought he was strong, but then he realized he
was just warrior in a little Kingdom. After that you see Valkyrie take
the soul from Sherad's body. Then the scene shifts back to where Aluze
is challanging Ronbelt. Ronbelt will say he underestimated Aluze and then
takes his glasses off saying it won't happen again. Ronbelt then casts a
spell which surrounds Aluze in black. You then see Sherad begging Valkyrie
to help Aluze, which she eventually agrees to do. Ronbelt then says he 
could survive the Ghoul by running, but he can't survive now. Then Voice
will say to stop hurting that man. Valkyrie then comes in and breaks the 
spell. Ronbelt can't believe that. Then he thinks she just has the ability
to break dark spells. Valkyrie then asks why he was trying to corrupt Aluze
soul. After that a battle occurs.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Ronbelt

HP:750

Attacks:Burn Storm

Strategy:There isn't too much strategy you can do. Just attack and 
         eventually Ronbelt will go down. You shouldn't have to heal.
         Otherwise this is a standard easy first battle.

   After the battle four soldier will be trying to take down Aluze. Aluze
will ask himself why he wants to kill as he dispatches the four soldiers
with ease. Aluze then talk about how he is weak and he wants to die. 
Valkyrie then appears and say that he doesn't have all power. Aluze will
say a Death God shouldn't talk like that. Then a voice will say to the
Commoner that the War Goddess isn't a Death God, and hopes that he dies
a thousand times. Sherad then appears. Aluze says he was wrong about 
Valkyrie being a Death God. Valkyrie says she need Aluze to help stop the
Destruction. The Knight Captain comes in and asks Aluze to throw down his
sword, and Aluze does. But then Aluze takes a short sword and kills 
himself. After that Sherad/Valkyrie/Aluze all talk. And after that you are
back on the world map. 

   Valkyrie will ask Frei whats wrong. Frei will say there is nothing wrong
and say next they have to do something. Valkyrie asks about what they are
doing next. Frei says she has to train her Heros so they won't "Die Again"
on the God World. After that Frei says to use her Soul Concentration again.
This time it will tell you to goto the Altoria Mountain Ruins. Valkyrie
says she knows where to go, and Frei tells her to go there. So head to
the Orange Dot and then press the O Button.

-------------------
Mount Altoria Ruins
-------------------

   Once you enter Vakyrie will jump off of the Ledge and say she feels
the enemies in here. Frei warps in and tells her she is right, there are
the Undead here. Frei then says she will give you some help here. Frei first
explains about Save Points, and that you should go. After that go save the
game and then head to the right. When you enter this screen Frei will say
this is battlefield and about how you fight enemies. Then Frei explain how
you swing your sword. Anyways first thing to do is head all the way to
the right and walk up the stairs. Then keep walking to the left and head
in the door way. When you enter this room Frei will explain that in order
open things you need to press Down and O Button. When you do that you will
find the Iron Lattice Key. Then head all the way back to the first floor
and then head the the first door you come to. If you go inside you should
find a Eye of Heaven. After you get that keep walking to the left and go
in the last door. When you enter Frei will tell you that you will need a
Key to get through the Iron Lattice. Since you already have the Key just
walk up to the door and it will open. Then Head downstairs.

   When you first enter here Frei will explain about how to climb ladders.
Anyways just jump off the ledge and you should land at a jump you can't
make. Frei will then come out and explain how you work your Crystals. After
that just create a crystal and jump on out. After you Jump out Frei will
explain that you can also temporaily freeze enemies with the Crystals too.
Now head all the way to the right and you should find a room where you find
a Plant Seed. Then start heading down but keep going to the left. Frei will
then tell you about how certain Treasure Chests are trapped. Oh, one thing,
If you can do a good combo against the Monster underneath the two treasures
you can get a Fire-Lance Book(which is a good little spell for now). 
Anyways only the left treasure is trapped, so open the right as normal(It 
The Writing of the Immortal). Now open the Left Treasure and run, that way
you avoid the damage. Then head back up and grab the treasure(it's a Plant
Seed). Now head all the way down, and the goto the right. Keep walking and
you will reach a Giant Pillar. Frei will tell you to hit the crack. So have
Valkyrie swing at the crack about two times and the pillar will fall. After
that you will get 500 points of experience. Frei will then tell you how to
work the Experience chest. Now head back to the room where the Plant Seeds
were and you will now find that you can walk all the way to the right. Now
create a crystal path so you can get that treasure chest on the right, but
watch out, its trapped. Now your probably saying how do I get that chest on
the right, I can't jump. Well you can do this two way. What you need to
do is to make "Hard Crystal" by jumping on it. Then you move these on the
platform that had the Plant Seeds to the edge. With that you should be
able to make the Jump, or you can just the Treasure Cheast(I haven't tried
this, but I think it should work). Anyways if you can successfully do it,
you can get a Treasure Search. When you have the Treasure Search Equipped,
whenever you are in a room with treasure a blue orb will circle around
you. 

   Now head all the way to the bottom of this room and then head to the
left. Then head to the left again. You will be in a very tall room and what
you need to do is get to the top. Once you get to the top you will find a 
Crystal, Baritone, Zebori and an Angel Cure. Then head all the way down 
and this time goto the right. Now you will be in a room with many spikes.
Just kill the enemy on the platfrom and then just up and get that Treasure
Chest(It's an Element Scepter). Then keep going to the right. You will
eventually enter a room that have a Nightshade and a Fire Lance, Frei will
then tell you about how magic books work. Now head back to the room that
had the treasure search. The go downstairs. 

   Now walk to the right until you can climb the stairs. The on the (I 
think it's the 3rd platform) goto the right. You will then be in a room
where you can find a Lapis Stone. The climb back up and you will reach a
save point. So Save the Game. The walk to the right again. Valkyrie then
says to Come Out. An Elder Vampire will then come out and claim Valkyrie is
a distraction. Valkyrie says she protects life, while the Vampires use 
life. The Elder Vampire thought he could talk you out of fighting, but he
guesses he is wrong. Frei than warps in and says she is leaving, but she
gives Valkyrie a weapon. Frei then tells Valkyrie that the Weapon hits 
3 times and hands over a Little Balshuu. You then get in a battle.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Elder Vampire
     2x Dragon Servant

HP:
   Elder Vampire:4800
   Dragon Servant:500

Recommended Level:2

Attacks:
   Elder Vampire:2x Physical
                 Fire Lance
                 Shadow Servant

   Dragon Servant:1x Physical

EXP:1000

Strategy:When you start this battle Valkyrie will explain that Dragon 
         Servants have Combo Guard. Which will stop any combo. And the only
         way to break it is to have the whole party attack. Anyways this
         battle is pretty easy. Especially if you get a Clincher. 

   After the battle you will see two treasure chests on the ground. When
you open them you will find out they are the Houken Grim Gaudy and the
Sealed Gem. If this is your first time playing the game, then just takes
all artifacts. If you are playing to get the good ending, I would leave
the Sealed Gem. Also once you finsh this you will get 3000 bonus exp.
Anyways, Save and then head all the way back. Once you get to the first 
save point Frei warps out. Frei and Valkyrie talk and pretty much all Frei
does is remind you of the things you learned. Then the game will explain 
the Chapter/Period system. Then Frei says you need to hurry to stop 
Ragnarok. Then she leaves a Fairy with you. The Fairy just tells you about
the battle system. Anyways just jump out the way you came in, and you will
then be in Chapter 1.

Belinas
-------

   When you first enter the town you will see a Man and a Woman walking
down the street. The Woman will then walk over to the stream. Her name is
Asaka. Asaka then asks what the name of this ugly rock is. The Man(Belinas) will tell her to put that down and get going. Asaka will
will not say anything and then Belinas will come over and grab the rock. 
Asaka will then tell Belinas to give her back the rock. When Belinas 
doesn't answer Asaka says that buying and selling slaves is almost 
in-human. Belinas talks about how it can't be helped and that they will 
be better off. Asaka then just says that all she was trying to say is it 
was wrong, especially to children. Then Asaka says that she isn't going 
to go watch. Belinas then says that if Asaka has a problem with it she 
doesn't have to come, but that is what this country does. Asaka will say 
that was cruel, and then says that people only have one life to live. 
Belinas will pause a second and then ask if Asaka wants her rock back. 
She will then say yes. There will be another pause and Belinas will say 
that this rock will bring good destiny. Asaka will ask what a destiny is.
Belinas will explain that is all decsisions by the Gods. The screen will
then go black and you will be in a flash back.

   You will see Belinas with a Man and a Woman and with Asaka crying on
the floor. A Woman(Maria) will explain that they found a cute one, and they
are giving her as a gift. Belinas will then ask his father what he expects
them to do with this child. His father will tell him that he can give the
child some of the tasks that Maria does. His father then leaves. Belinas
will say to Maria how absurd this is. Maria will apoligize to the girl. 
Then Belinas will ask what the childs name is. Maria will tell him that it
is Asaka. Belinas will question the name and Maria will say yes. Belinas
will snap his fingers and Asaka will then stop crying. Belinas will then
say it is nice to see her face. After that the scene will go to the cages.
Asaka will ask if it is today and Belinas will not answer.

   Now you are back at the stream and Belinas tells Asaka to keep the rock
of destiny. Now Belinas will now talk "Destiny? With Maria dead why am I 
talking about destiny. With Father and Many of my Friends killed in Battle
why am I talking about destiny." After that he continues on about how he
doesn't believe in destiny and then talks about how he meet Asaka. Now you
are at the Cages again and Asaka will try and get Belinas attention. 
Belinas says there is no way he can do it. The scene will then shift to 
Belinas house. Belinas will be sleeping in bed when all of a sudden a Ghost 
appears. Belinas jumps out of bed as the ghost approaches him. But just
before the ghost can get to him Valkyrie warps in and takes out the Ghost.
Belinas will ask who you are, then pauses saying it can't be. Valkyrie will
then explain that the Undead Curse this house and particularly the girl. 
Belinas will then thinks about Asaka and immediatly takes off to her room.
Valkyrie then warps out. You will then see an Elder Vampire over the 
life-less body of Asaka. The Elder Vampire will say he did this all for 
Veriza. The Elder Vampire warps out just as Belinas comes in. Belinas then
yells out Asaka and walks over to her. Valkyrie then warps in. Belinas then
asks Valkyrie to please help the girl. Valkyrie will then ask if Belinas 
still doesn't believe in Destiny. Belinas will ask about this Destiny, then
wonders about how this can all be destiny. Anyways after a while Valkyrie
will explain that she can summon Asaka's soul back if Belinas gives his 
Soul. Valkyrie then explains to him that it means dying. Belinas then says
he doesn't care. Valkyrie then hops up into the air, and flaps her wings
a couple of times and Belinas falls down. Valkyrie then heads to the floor
and grabs Belinas soul. Valkyrie will then warp out. After this a strange
light will surround Asaka's body. Now you will see Valkyrie in Belinas 
room and eventually a message will come up that will tell you about 
Magic God Veriza. Anyways you will find yourself on the World Map again
and it is time to use the Soul Concentration. And this time it will tell
you to goto the Forgotten Caves.

---------------
Forgotten Caves
---------------

   These Caves only purpose is for you to gain Levels. However, I recommend
that you skip this one. The monsters inside are just too strong for you
right now. Anyways, after you have finshed that use your Soul Concentration
again and it will tell you to head to Clairmonferan.

------
Rourry
------

   The scene will open up with many people attending a funeral. An 
admistrator will be asking for the War Goddess to take this heroes soul. 
And that she should please come. The the camera will move up and you will
see doves flying above a massive castle. The scene will then move on and
you will see a young woman in a forest. Then a man will run up. Rourry
will apoligze to Miria and will note that she waited. Miria will say that
she did because she wanted to see you. You will then hear the leaves rustle
and Miria will comment about the music that the trees make. Miria will then
ask Rourry what he thinks about the music. Rourry will then look up to the
sky and say that it sure makes him feel better and that it reminds him of
the sound the ocean makes. Miria will then ask Rourry why he wanted to meet
her here. Rourry will asks what's wrong. Miria says that she has a feeling
Rourry is going to goto Sea or become a Soldier and fight in a War. Rourry
will ask how she knows. Miria say she just knows and that her Mother told
her to forget all about Rourry. Rourry says that it is probably the best
thing to do. Miria says he shouldn't say that. Miria then says she has a
feeling that Rourry will come back, once more. Rourry will be presently
supprised at this. Rourry then hugs Miria and tells her that he won't die.
Miria then returns the hug. The screen will then go black and a message 
will tell you that Rourry did die in battle. 

   When the scene comes back up you will see Miria in a Chair. Rourry will
be thinking about how cruel it was to say that and that he was wrong to go
off to battle. The screen will the go back to the forest and you will see
Miria talk about how she will one day speak to Rourry again. The leaves will
rustle in the forest once again. Miria will say how cruel that is and ask
the noise to stop. The trees will then rustle again. Miria will this time
beg whoever is doing this to stop. She then says she can't even look to the
sky knowing Rourry is dead. The screen will go black.

   Valkyrie will then appear on the screen. She asks Rourry if he really
wants to do this. Rourry will explain that is what he said. Valkyrie will
say that you humans think one thing and do another. Rourry will question 
this. Valkyrie talks about how even though the strong feel strong, and the 
weak feel Weak, they all in the end have the same Heart. Valkyrie then asks
if he understands and then asks him about the Woman. Valkyrie asks Rourry
if he wants to stop the never ending pain of the Woman. Rourry then says
he wouldn't know what to say. The screen the fades back into the forest.
You then see Rourry run towards Miria as she gets up and shouts out his
name. Rourry then hugs her and Miria then hugs him. Rourry then apoligizes
for not being able to see her. The screen then goes blank and Valkryie
will comment about how she is slowly turning into an Angel...

   Now use your Soul Concentration again and it will tell you to head to
the Soldi Cemetary.

---------------
Soldi Cementary
---------------

   I recommend that you take Rourry with you instead of Belinas. You will
need his Bow for the boss battle of this dungeon. Now on with the 
Walkthrough.

   When you first enter head straight to the right and fall down the
whole in the ground. You should land on a top of a pile of skulls. And 
there should be a bag near it. In that bag is the skill Attack Power. It's
really nice little skill to start pumping up right now. But Since I 
generally Belinas up after the first chapter, I tend to spend his CP on
his Hero Possibility. Anyways after this head back up the pile of skulls
to the left. In this room take out all the enemies, then you will need to
crystalize the platform to the left. This will allow you to make a running 
jump so that you can get the Short Bow. It is very important that you have
a bow for this boss battle. So once you grab that continue heading to the
left. Now first head past the ladder and go in the doorway. Now to your
left you will see a Gargoyle Statue in a Pentagram and to your right you 
will see a Stone Monument. What you need to do is slash the Gargoyle then
move the Monument to the Pentagram. When you do this you will be rewarded
with 1000 Experience. Then go outside this room and climb the ladder. After
that just keep going to the left until you reach a new room. First keep
going until you reach the ladder. Then climb it and continue to the left 
and you will find a chest that has the Avoid skill in it. Then head back
to the ladder and go through the doorway. And in this room just move the
Monument on the left into the Pentagram that is to the right and you gain
another 100 Exp. Then head out and slide underneath those rocks. Now you
will have to do the same Monument/Pentagram things and when you finsh 
continue on to your right. In this room first you should head to the bottom
platfrom and open the chest and you will find a Fire Lance spell in it, but
watch out it is traped. Now you will need to climb that stair to the top 
and push the Monument off the edge. Then just slash at the Gargoyle and you
will gain another 1000 Exp. Then just continue along the very top route and
head into the new room. In this room you can grab a Broad Sword and a Eye
of Heaven, but to get the Eye of Heaven you will need to attach a crystal
to the platform to allow you to make the jump. After that slash at the 
Gargoyle and if everything works right then the door to the left should
open. If it doesn't it means you missed a Statue. Anyways once the door
opens you will gain 5000 Exp. Then continue on the room to the right.

   Now head down to the bottom left and save. Then continue along the
bottom path and you will find a Treasure Chest, but you will need to watch
out as the Chest contains a trap. Once you open it you will get a Element
Scepter. Then go back and save again and take the high road this time. But
don't go in through the door yet. You first need to equip a bow on Valkyrie
if you haven't already and you will soon understand why. Once you have the
bow equipped on Valkyrie head through the door. When you walk in a Drow
Shaman will be there. Valkyrie will say the Shamam must be the one 
harrasing the dead. The Shaman will talk about how it is fun, etc. Valkyrie
will then get mad and you will enter a battle. 

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:
   Violent Apeman
   2x Drow Shamans

HP:
   Violent Apeman:4000
   Drow Shamans:1000

Recommended Level:4

Attacks:
   Violent Apeman:Physical
 
   Drow Shamans:Fire Lance

EXP:

Strategy:If you do not have a bow equipped on Valkyrie(or you have Rourry)
         when you start this battle one of your characters will die. What 
         you have to do is on the first round have Valkyrie/Rourry use 
         their bow to take out one of the Shamans in the back row. If you 
         don't they will both use Fire Lance on the same character, and 
         that character will die. After both of the Shaman are gone, then 
         just use the standard battle plan and just use your Clinchers.

   After the battle is over you will find a horde of treasure for your 
taking. You will find a Book on Making Damsacus(Send up), the Crown of
Thelma(Keep), and the Grey Blue Scarf(Keep) and then a message will tell
you that you gained 10000 Exp. But, don't leave yet. There are two more
chests you can get. Use your crystal on the right wall and go up to the
top. You will then find a book for the spell Cool Dazzel(Very Nice) and
a book for the skill Magic Power(also very nice). Anyways after that is 
all done use the stairs to the left to leave. 

------
Extras
------

   These are optional events you can do. You don't have to do them, but
they will generally add more to the story/make you stronger/get you a
better ending.

-------------
Dragon Slayer
-------------

   This is a very nice weapon. It will kill all Dragons in 1 hit. You
   can find it by going to Aluze's house in Altoria. Just walk up to his
   bedroom and then Aluze will come out and grab the weapon.

---------------
Graveyard Scene
---------------

   Head to the Graveyard, It is the highest dot that isn't Orange. When you
enter Valkyrie will wonder what this place is. She says she can sense a
human spirit. Valkyrie will then walk over to the left and then become 
suprised. She rushs over and you then see two ghosts by the Grave. Valkyrie
will ask what they are doing here. She slashes at them once. Valkyrie then
looks around and will talk about how the ran away. Valkryie then wonders
why the Undead would want to haunt this rock. Valkryie notices that its
a Tombstone. After that you can leave.

-------------------
War Goddess Pendant
-------------------

   If you head to Clairmonferan and walk all the way to the right you will
enter a little forest. Rourry will the come out and say that you might
possibly be able to use this. He then hands you the War Goddess Pendant. It
reduces Dark Damage by 50%.

--------------
Plucked Flower
--------------

   Go to Lassen and the head to the right. You will now be in Belinas
house. Now take the route that leads to Asaka's room. When you enter it
Belinas will come out and think of Asaka. You will then get the Plucked
Flower. This reduces Poison Damage by 90%.


   After you have done those, just waste out the rest of the periods and
eventually you will be called to Valhalla.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

   I will generally tend to send up Belinas now. So make Belinas have all 
of the qualities Frei wants and then transfer him up. After you have done
that, use your Soul Concentration and then head to Altoria.

-----
Rofar
-----

   When you enter Altoria you will see Roy(Aluze's Brother), sitting in
Jail. Roy will be thinking about Aluze. The screen will then shift and you
will see Rofar asking what happened to Aluze. The Knight Captain will
explain that Aluze killed Princess Sherad, Ronbelt, and many other 
soldiers. Rofar will the get mad at his father. There will then be a flash-
back scene where you see Aluze and Rofar practicing. Aluze will then beat
Rofar and Rofar will say that he wished he could be a genius too. Aluze
will say that it's not genius, it is just a "Distinction" that Aluze and
Rofar have. Aluze then walks over and picks up the Ax. Aluze asks Rofar
to grab the Ax, and then they can practice more. The scene will the come 
back to the present. You will see Rofar walking along when he overhears a
Soldier talking about the Fighting Genius had murdered. Rofar will then
drop his head and become sad. The other soldier will ask if he might have
went berserk. There will be another flashback where you see Aluze, Rofar
and his Father standign around. Aluze will be talking about how the world
is going to hell, but about how it's slowly becoming better. The Knight 
Captian will say that he sure has an optimist point of view. The scene will
then switch to the top of a Mountain. The Wind will blow some leaves and
then Aluze will get up. Aluze will notice that Rofar likes the wind. The
wind will blow again. 

   You will now see Rofar talking to a Blue-Haired Swordsman and Woman 
Swordsman in a White Outfit. Rofar will be asking them if they think they
can help him get Roy. When neither of them say anything, Rofar will then 
say that is what he thought and start to walk away. The Woman(Selia) will
tell him to wait. Selia asks him if he is willing to die just to see this
person. Rofar will not answer. Selia will then talk about the ideals of
justice and that if he was innocent he would have been found innocent.
The Rofar will say he has to do it for this person. The Blue-Haired
Swordsman(Kashel)will ask if that is the "Distinction" that Aluze always
talked about. Rofar will then get mad at Kashel. But then Rofar talks about
how it has to be this way. Kashel will then tell him it's his own death and
he can do it however he likes. Then Kashel will tell him that he should 
want to live. Rofar the goes on about how he has to help Roy for Aluze. 
Selia will seem sad at this. Rofar then says he has to do it no matter 
what. Then a message comes up on the screen telling about how Rofar can't
run away from this.

   Rofar will now be outside the jail cell of Roy. Rofar will think about
how his father's name will be corrupted in the Law. Rofar then goes on
about how he and his father have a different sense of Justice. After this
the screen will go blank and you will be back on the world map, but now
you have Rofar in your party. Make sure that you can afford to give him a
Spinning Spear(it's a nice little weapon). 

   Anyways use your Soul Concentration. It will tell you to head to the
Lab of Sarellno.

---------------
Lab of Sarellno
---------------

   Note:I find that if Valkyrie has the Supreme Crossbow, this level is 
very easy. So you might want to think about buying it.

   Start by walking to the right. When you get to the vine, cut it and then
continue walking to the right. On the next screen you will reach a Save
Point, so Save the game. In this same room if you search the desk near the
right you will find a book. The book just talks about the experiments they
were doing. After you have done that, head back to the left and this time
head down. Now, Head right and then take the second path that leads down. 
Now cut that vine on the left and you can find a chest that contains the
skill Slanting Rain. Continue to walk all the way to the right and you
will eventually find a capsule, if you search it you will find out that
it contains a Strong Acid. Now this next section is a little complicated.
You will notice that there are big vines that you can't cut through. You
should also notice that they have flowers on them. Now in order to get 
through them you need to wear the corrisponding color of purfume. So just
take a moment and explore this area(and kill all the monsters). Once you
have done that here is a list of what you have to do:

1)Grab the Acid.
2)Go get the Red Perfume on you.
3)Go to the Red Vine in the middle(right next to the room where you can get
   Yellow Perfume)and then cut it down and use the Acid on it.
4)Go back and get more Acid.
5)Go get the Yellow Perfume on you(passing the Red Vine).
6)Take the path up. 
7)Seach the Dead Womans body and get the Blue Purfume on you.
8)Run and take the route that leads up(it is just before the Acid Room)and
   then kill the blue vine and use the Acid.
9)Run back to where the Red Vine was and go get the Yellow Purfume on you.
10)Go back to where you killed the Blue Vine and this section will be 
   finshed.

   After you have done that you have passed the worst part of this level.
Now head all the way to the left and you can find a Icicle Edge. Now
head up. Just a quick note DON'T TAKE THE SECOND ROUTE THAT LEADS DOWN! It
will take you out and you will have to do this all over again. Now head
all the way to the left and you can find a Element Scepter. Head back to
the right and take the route up. Now head to the right and you can find
the Lotus Gem. It is important that you get this. Also make sure that
you have the Red Purfume on. You can get it in the same room as the Lotus
Gem. Now head to the left. If you walk all the way to the left you pass
under a fountain that will wash your purfume away. So what you have to do
is climb the green vine that is along the wall. Take that you then you
will make it to the vine. Save the game and then head to the left. 

   You will walk in and all of a sudden a Harpy will swoop down. Valkyrie
will note that it is a Harpy and then says that she will get rid of it.
You will now enter a battle. At the start of the battle Valkyrie will
explain about how flying creatures are hard to hit with swords. So, that
is why you need skills like Throw and Wait Reaction.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Harpy

HP:12000

Recommended Level:5

Attacks:Physical
        Reflect Sorcery

Weakness:Fire

EXP:7000

Strategy:This is another battle where Valkyrie is better off with a bow.
         Also the spell Fire Lance is really great in this battle. Just
         watch out for Reflect Sorcery. Anyways if you are Level 5-6 this
         battle should be no problem. Just attack and use your Clinchers
         and the battle should be over in 2-3 rounds.

   After you have killed the Harpy walk all the way to the left and use
Crystal to jump up the left hand wall. In the Harpy's Next you can find
three treasures chest. They contain the Naken:"Flame Fein", Holy Glass,
and The Holy Emperess's Tiara. Once you are done with those you will get
30000 Experience Bonus. Now take the route that leads down and just walk
to the left and you are done.

   Now use your Soul Concentration again and it will take you to head
to Clairmonferan.

-----------
Jake Linnas
-----------

   You will now be in a bar, and a man with a white shirt will then walk
in. This man looks as though he has losed the use of one of his arms. The
Big Man(Gunther) will notice that it is Jake. Jake will say nothing. 
Gunther will then talk about how it has been a long time since he has
seen Jake. Gunther will then walk over to Jake and ask him what he is 
doing here. Gunther then talks about how they can't have a hero like 
Jake here and then punches Jake hard in the shoulder. Jake will then talk
about how he can't run away. 

   Now you see Jake leaveing the bar. As he does he runs into a young boy.
The boy will be startled. The boy will then notice Jake is injured and
apoligize. Jake will just put his hand on the boy's head. Jake will then
walk off the screen. The scene then changes and you will see two men in a
large circular room. Man A will say that someone he knows saw Jake Linnas
in the town today. Man B will inquire about this. Man B then continues by
asks if they know where he is now. Man A will say that they can find out
quick enough. The scene will then change and you will see Jake standing
in an old moss covered house. Jake will be talking to himself. Jake will
be wondering why he came back here after what happened with the King. The
scene shifts to the outside of Clairmonferan. Jake will be walking along
in the dark when he notices somthing. Jake will asks who is there. You
will then see somebody standing in a "Ninja-like" outfit. Jake will then
pull out his gun, but when he does the "Ninja" leaves. Jake runs over and
notices that he left a letter. 

   You will then be back in the circular room. Man A will then walk up to
B and tell him that they delivered the letter and that's why... Man B will
wonder what he means by that. Man B will keep wondering, eventually 
realizing that Man A knows somthing. The scene the comes back and you see
Jake walk in. Man A will greet Jake. Just as Jake walks over to Man A, two
arrows come out and kill Jake. Man B shows up and the talk about how the
King should be happy. The scene will then shift to the young boy sitting
outside the bar. The Boy will hear two mean talking about how the Knight
could never resist a fight. The Young boy will then bow his head. You
will now see Valkyrie and Jake talking with each other. Jake will say that
his father was talking about this. Jake will then talk about how he has
no regrets what happend to the King. Valkyrie asks even if it mean his
death. Jake will talk about how he was a Knight and he just couldn't make
it in time to save the town. Jake then goes on talking about how 10 years
ago, his father was telling him he couldn't have done anything differnt. 
Valkyrie will then tell him that he is weak, but for a human he isn't all
that bad. You will now be on the World Map. Use your Soul Concentartion
and you will be told to goto the Forgotten Caves.

---------------
Forgotten Caves
---------------

   If you have a Dragon Slayer and the Raven Slayer, you can kill some of
the enemies in here. Just make sure that you know what enemy you are 
fighting so you know which weapon to equip. Also if you use a Book of
Refining Gold on those Birds in the long hall, you can get about 27000
Experience from that battle(which translates into about 2 levels). Now
unless you have a Beast Slayer, you can't kill that monster to the left.
So just leave. When you reach the World Map, use your Soul Concentration.
You will then be told to goto Firan.

---
Jun
---

   You will see a Young Woman crying in a shrine in the Rain. The Young 
Woman will then walk to the left where a old man is standing. The Old Man
(Listed simply as a Shinto Priest) tells they young woman to go home and 
get some sleep. The Young Woman(Ashie) says that her brother won't be doing 
anything anyways. Ashie then talks about how if only her brother hadn't 
have gone on that Journey. The Shinto Priest will agree. You will then be 
in a town scene with three young man. Townsman 1 will ask about a Demon. 
Townsman 2 will ask where this Demon is. The Man(simply listed as 
"Samurai") will say that he will go.

   You will now be in the Demons Lair and you will see that Samurai has 
lost. The Demon say it was a nice try, but today isn't your day. The 
Samurai will then scream. You will then be back and the Shinto Priest
will talk about how it was lucky the other two survived. Ashie then will
tell him that she lost her brother in the process. The Shinto Priest then
goes on about how he understands and about how he has always protected
her. Ashie then agrees with that. The Shinto Priest says that she can come
back anytime she wants. The Shinto Priest then says not to worry, her
brother wont be attaked by any undead. 

   You will be back in the Demons Lair now. Valkyrie will walk up to him.
The Demon says that he will add her soul to his collection. Valkyrie will
then walk forward and says "Soul? Oh, I don't have one of those..." She 
then takes the Demon out with one slash. You will then see the Demon flash
and suddenly become the Samurai. There will then be a flashback and the
Demon will be explaning to Jun that when he dies Jun will become him. 
Jun can't belive this and says that he won't die. The Demon will keep 
talking how Jun will be killed. Jun will then state that he won't die, he
has to keep living. The Demon will be supprised at this. Jun says that
this time he will give it all of his strength. There will be a flash of
light and you will see the Demon down. Jun wonders why the Demon isn't
changing into a human. The Demon then explains that he is going to change
into Jun. You then see Jun tranform into the Demon. The Demon will be 
happy he is still alive. You will then go to the present and Jun will
ask Valkyrie where the Demon is. Valkyrie will explain the Demon isn't 
here any more. That Jun and she got rid of it. Jun will then realize the
demon took his Soul. She then tells Jun not to worry. She has his soul
and she wants his help. Valkyrie keeps talking until she eventually tells
Jun that he is hers now. Jun then realize that his soul is alright.

   You will now see the Shinto Priest and Ashie standing outside. There is
now a Rainbow out too. Ashie will wonder if her brother is doing all
right. She then continues say that she is alone now. The Shinto Priest
will wonder why she says that. Ashie says she doesn't know why, but that
is how she feels. 

   You now have Jun. I really like Jun since his Clincher attacks 15 times
(The only other that attacks more times is Bram). Anyways You will now be 
on the World Map. Use your Soul Concentration and you will be told to
goto the Nolsof Swamp.

------------
Nolsof Swamp
------------

   Start by walking to the left until you can walk up. When your on the
next screen start walking to the right through the swamp. When you reach
the end you will find a chest containing the Shadow Servant spell. But 
watch out, the chest has a trap on it. After that walk all the way to the
left until you reach a new screen. You should now be near a hill with a 
switch-back path that leads up. Take that path to the top where you will
find another Shadow Servant spell. Then go up where it will let you. You
will find a Holy Crystal near the right wall. After that head down
and take the path that leads to the right. Then just follow the path right
until you can head down. Now just keep going left until you can head. And
you will be back at the hill. The reason I had you do that is so you can 
gain a more Experience by killing all those monsters. Anyways work your
way back to the area that you started at and this time head keep going 
to the left. Once you get passed the swamp you will find that you are near
a place that you can go down, so do it. Once you are on this screen, just
walk to the left and kill those two monsters. Then come back and go down
where it will let you.

   On this screen walk over to the right and you will see a huge swamp. 
When you get near the tree Valkyrie will notice that she can cut it. Have
her swing at the tree and it will fall down and create a path for you(You
also get 5000 Experince Points for doing it too). So start walking along 
the tree and eventually you will reach a bag. When you open it, you will
find that it contains the skill Charge. You will also see a path that lets
you walk up, so take that path. Now that tree that you think blocking your
way actually is a fake. Just Jump and you will find a path that will let
you through. When you get to the other side you will find a Holy Crystal,
the skill Wait Reaction, an Eye of Heaven, and last a Element Scepter. When
you have all those head back to where you found the skill Charge. If you
keep walking to the left you will find a path that lead down. Just go in
this path and you will find a Save spot to the left. Save and go back to
the screen that had the Charge Skill. Keep walking all the way to the
left. Eventually you will reach a path that will let you go down(it will
be just before the save point). When you take it head to the right and
grab the bag, then goto the first swamp and open the chest you see. It will
contain the Cure Condition skill. Now if you walk to the right you will
find a chest hidden in the swamp. It contains the Naken:"Flare Baselard",
which is essential if you want to beat the Dragon Zombie and don't have
the Dragon Slayer. But, don't go yet. You can still find a Demon Slayer
(kills anything with Demon in it's name in one hit) and a Crystal. They
will both be in the swamp to the left. Anyways once you have all of those
items, head back to the very first Save Point. But, this time head to the
left. Keep going left until you can take a path that leads down. Now, 
before you walk to the left, Make sure you have the Dragon Slayer of the
Naken:"Flare Baselard" equipped. Otherwise you will lose this battle. Then
fall down to the left and Valkrie will automatically walk through the mud.
She will come apon a Dragon Zombie. Valkyrie will wonder what the Dragon
could want here. Anyways you have to take the Dragon out, so you get in a
battle.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Dragon Zombie

HP:18000
   
Recommended Level:6

Attacks:Physical
        Shadow Servant

EXP:6000

Strategy:This is a very difficult if you do not have the Naken:"Flare 
         Baselard" or the Dragon Slayer. Anyways if you have the Dragon
         Slayer it is over in one hit. If not it will take some time. And
         you will need to be careful since this is the first boss that can
         actually kill you, even if you pay attention. Then just try and
         get a big combo going and you will win. Also during the second
         round Valkyrie will tell you how to find out the enemies weakness
         by using the Spectecles. Anyways, just make sure you have the 
         Dragon Slayer and this battle will be now problem.

   Once the battle is over continue walking throught the swamp to the
right. You will come apon two chests eventually, both of them artifacts.
One contains Dryaid Bark(Leave) and the other contains the Tombstone
Sheet(Leave). After you have grabbed both of the treasures you will get
a message saying you received 20000 Experience Points. Then just head to
the right and you will find a exit that will lead you to the world map.

they will generally add more to the story/make you stronger/get you a
better ending.

Raven Slayer
------------

   Head back to Clairmonferan and then go to Jakes House. It will be the
2nd or 3rd door from the left. When you enter Jake will come out and say
that it looks like those two Knights forgot something. He will then hand
you the Raven Slayer. A very powerful bow, that kills flying monsters
instantly.

--------------------
Encounter with Rucio
--------------------

   Head to Chevron. You will then see a Woman(Clair) walking around. She
will then stop walking and then ask herself where he could be. Clair will
then continue to walk. Clair stops again and says that she guesses she will
go home. But, before she does she will notice Valkyrie. There will now
be a flashback where you see Rucio with Clair. Clair will be asking if the
kid was beautiful. Rucio will say that is a stupid question, he was 14 at
the time. But, yes he did think she was beautiful. Clair then continues to
inquire and Rucio says that the girl had Platinum colored hair. You will
now be back in the present and Clair will note that Valkyrie has Platinum
colored hair. Clair will then think that if that is the girl, she will die.
You now see a Stone hit Valkyrie in the back. Valkyrie will look around to
see who tossed it. Clair will then be wondering why she would throw a rock
at someone. Valkyrie will then be in a house with an Old Woman(Dorthy). 
Dorthy will ask Valkyrie to please forgive the child. Valkyrie will wonder
what she is talking about. Dorthy will say that the child who hit her with
the stone has a tendacy to get angry. Valkyrie will say nothing and a child
will then walk through the door. Following the Child will be Rucio, who
asks how Dorthy is doing. Dorthy will say she is fine, and then says that
Clair hit this Woman with a Rock. Rucio is very supprised that Clair would
do that. Rucio will then walk over to Valkyrie and apoligize, saying that
Clair is just like that. Rucio will then be shocked and Dorthy will ask
him what is wrong. Rucio will say it is nothing. Valkyrie will then say
hello to Rucio. You will now just see Valkyrie with Dorthy. Dorthy will
explain about how Rucio is helping all of the children. After that you will
see Rucio confront Clair about the Rock Incident. Clair will say she didn't
do it but, then say that she has Platinum Hair. Rucio will understand.

   Now that you are done here. Just waste out the rest of the Periods.
After you do that Frei will show up.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Before you start this chapter get rid of Jake. After you have done that
use your Soul Concentration and then head to Camille Village.

------
Kashel
------

   When you enter Camille Village you will notice that everyone has been
turned into Stone. The camera will move to the left and eventually you will
see Kashel and Selia. Selia will comment about how cruel this was. Kashel
will say that Word wasn't wrong. This had to have been done by some Stone-
like creature. Selia will throw out a Basilisk, Cockatrice, and then a
Gorgon. Selia will then say that has to have been it. Kashel will say that
it couldn't have been, since the people would have been crushed. Selia will
then throw out a Medusa as a possiblity. Kashel will say that was what he
was thinking. Kashel then says that they will have to get someone to help
these people. Selia will agree. They then walk to the right and come across
an old sword. Kashel will wonder what that sword is doing there. Kashel 
then walks up to the sword a grabs it. He then notice that the sword is 
good. Kashel then notice there is an enscription on it. Selia will come up 
and notice that its called Ruin Writing. Selia then walks up and note that 
it looks as if it could be a match for the famous Grand String. Kashel will
be supprised. After that Selia will walk in the door and note that even the 
ruins are turned to stone. She then yells for Kashel to come quickly. 
Kashel will say he realize somthing. He was talking to a child who told 
him about how Monsters had been sealed away. Kashel then realizes this 
must be the place the kid was talking about. Selia won't answer. Kashel 
then continues that they have to go back and save the people. Selia will 
agree. Then a mysterious voice then start talking to Kashel. Kashel will 
then want the voice to come out. Selia will wonder what Kashel is doing. A 
flying creature will then come out and stab Kashel. As Kashel is sent 
flying he says that he has to protect...and then all of a sudden the 
bottle starts to glow. 

   You will now see Valkyrie holding the bottle. Valkyrie asks him why he
wants to save this. Kashel will be supprised it's the War Goddess Valkyrie.
Kashel will then say that he feels like he is in a dream. After this he
inquire as to what Valkyrie wants to say to him. Valkyrie tells him that
they are going to live. Kashel will wonder about this. Valkyrie then 
repeats that they are going to live. You will then see Kashel disappear and
Valkyrie carefully place the bottle on the ground. You will then see Selia
come over and pick it up. She is supprised it isn't broken, but then feels
bad for Kashel. You will now see Selia with a little girl. Selia will be
talking about how she doesn't have the strength to live and that she misses
him. Selia then falls down crying. 

   You will now be back on the world map. I put Kashel in my party, since
I like him. After that use your Soul Concentration and head to Firan.

------
Nanami
------

   The scene will open up with a little girl sitting in a room. A Man will
then be walking in the background and enters the room. The man(listed as
Foster Father) will ask if Nanami is doing okay. Nanami will tell the 
Foster Father that he shouldn't worry about her. The Foster Father will 
understand and tells her that she should take a little nap. Nanami says she
doesn't need to. Nanami follows up by saying that she is going to go make 
an errand. The Foster Father won't say anything. Nanami then says that is 
why her father shouldn't worry about her, she can take care of herself. You
will then see Nanami praying at shrine for someone named Minaro. After that
a Woman(Foster Mother) will be asking The Foster Father where Nanami went 
to. The Foster Father will just make a sound. The Foster Mother wonders why
she would go there, she then says that Nanami should forget all of the 
problems she carries. The Mother then continues to worry and the Father 
then consuls her.

   You now see Nanami walking through a cave. She will be wondering about
both of her parents and wonders if blood relation really makes that much
of a deal. Nanami then continues to walk and says if doesn't matter to 
others, then why does it matter to her. She then says that she is not
her fault. Nanami then says that her power is proof of that. You will then
see Nanami walking to the left and then she will see a sword in a shrine.
Nanami recognizes this as the God Katana "Ryu Wizard". Nanami walks up to
it and the Katana starts to glow. The screen will then flash and you will
see Nanami back at the shrine as she walks towards her Foster Parents.
Nanami will then pull somthing out and her Foster Father will be shocked.
The Foster Father will then walk over to Nanami and her Foster Mother will
cry. There will be a flashback and you will see Nanami blinded from the
light. Nanami will then wonder what that light was. A lifeless figure will
then appear in front of the Katana. Nanami will wonder if this is really
Minaro. The spirit will then move right towards Nanami as she cries. 

   Valkyrie will then warp in and the spirit will back off. Valkyrie tells
it to not bother this child, or Valkyrie will finsh it off. Nanami begs
Valkyrie to stop. Valkyrie will tell Nanami that it isn't what she thinks
it is. Nanami then says that she wants to end this. Valkyrie will wonder
what the human ment. Nanami will say that she wants to die, but she is
going to miss everyone. Nanami then starts to cry. Nanami will the go on
and on about that and eventually Valkyrie will say that she understands.
After that Nanami then walks past Valkryie as the screen goes blank. After
that you will Valkyrie talk about how everyone walks a different path and
then says that you will live once again. You will then see Nanami's sister
staring at a Rainbow as the camera moves up. Now use your Soul 
Concentration. You will now be told to goto the Soldiers Barracks of the 
Calcurry Mansion.

-----------------------------------------
Soldiers Barracks of the Calcurry Mansion
-----------------------------------------

   Start by heading to the right. Now keep heading to the right until you
reach the ladder. When you reach it go all the way to the right and jump
in the opening. Now take that ladder to the bottom and head to the left.
You will then find two chests(they contain a Guts and an Adapt Illusion).
Now go back and climb up that ladder and jump to the right. You can find
an Eye of Heaven in this room. Once you have it, go back to the first
Ladder and take that up. Jump to the right when you can and enter the door.
Continue to the right for two rooms and eventually you will reach a door
and a message will show up. The message will say that you are reaching the
puzzle room of the Calcurry Mansion. And that if anytime you get stuck you
can press select and it will show you a map. Also if you get stuck, a face
will appear and then you can be warped back. When you are ready head to 
the right. This is the order you will want to follow:

D,R,R,R,U,L,L,U,U,R,R,D,D,R,

   A few more tips. You will find that you won't be able to make jump 
because you are standing in the water. So stand near the edge of the box
to make the jumps. Also if it won't let you go up, just re-enter the room
and the puzzle will reset itself.

   When you finally accomplish this you will get a 20000 Experience Bonus.
And you solved what is one of the worst puzzles of this game. Now that you
have that continue to the right. Eventually you will reach a Save Point.
Save you game and then continue to the right. When you enter Valkyrie will
talk about how this is a Strange Monster. After that Valkyrie says that she
will destroy it. You then enter a battle.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Chimera

HP:20000
   
Recommended Level:9

Attacks:

EXP:12600

Strategy:Cure Condition is incredibly helpful in this battle. The more
         people that have it the better. Since the Chimera can do all
         sorts of Status Conditions. Anyways if you can attack once with
         your entire party, you can beat this thing easily. All in all,
         the worst part of this battle is the start. 

   After you beat the Chimera head to the right and you can find two 
chests. The contain the Geni:"Mirage Robe" and the Magic Summoning Mirror.
Then you will get 50000 for doing all of this. So head back out to the
World Map. Use your Soul Concentration once again and this time head to
Firan.

------
Yumeru
------

   The scene will open up with you seeing a "Tall" ship. The camera will
then slowly move down until you see a Mermaid sitting on a piece of 
wrekage. The Mermaid(Yumeru) will wonder if everyone is doing okay. You
will then see a two men on the ship. The man on the left will walk over.
His name is Katsuo. He will say that is not good, they won't be able to
make it today. The other Man(simply listed as Father Like) says that they
can always make it tomorrow. Katsuo will start walking to the left and
looking. The Father Figure will ask him what's wrong. Katsuo will ask
him if he sees the beautiful island out there. The Father Figure will say 
that they are surround by water. Katsuo says that he know this. Yumeru then
shouts out for them to help her. You then go back to a close-up of Yumeru
as she shouts for help again. Yumeru then says if they help here she will
take them to a beautiful island inhabited by Maidens. The screen will then
flash and you will see Yumeru on board the ship. 

   The Father Figure will be asking if she is all right. Yumeru says that
she is. The Father Figure wants to know how she got here. Yumeru answers
that she was shipwreked. The Father Figure will wonder about what happend
to all the other people. Yumeru says she doesn't know. After a brief pause,
The Father Figure will ask what her name is. Yumeru answers with her name.
The Father Figure will tell Katsuo to go below deck. Katsuo wants to know 
why he needs it. The Screen will then go black for a second and when it 
reappears you will see Yumeru with The Father Figure. Yumeru asks if the 
Father Figure knows about Lapis. The Father Figure will be supprised at 
this. Then asks if she means the Jewel. Yumeru then says yes, but she needs
some help. The Father Figure wants to know how she learned about this. 
Yumeru says she saw it. They go on about that and eventually the screen 
will go blank and Yumeru will be telling about how there is no Lapis. 

   After that the ship will then shake. Yumeru will ask what that was. 
Katsuo wonders if she really wants to know, and tells them there is a
Gaint Whirlpool ahead. Yumeru wonders what a Whirlpool is and Katsuo 
explains it to her. The screen will go black and you will see the ship
in the port. Katsuo will come out and say he wants Lapis too. Yumeru
wonders what he is talking about.  Katsuo says the he overheard you talking
to The Father Figure and says that he wants some too. Katsuo and and 
Yumeru will walk along the dock and then Katsuo will notice that you 
changed. Yumeru will thank him, but then says she hasn't changed. Katsuo
will apoligize. They both then continue to walk along the dock. Yumeru
will then ask Katsuo what he dreams about. Katsuo says that one day he
would like to have his own ship. Just as you reach the end Katsu will
stop and asks Yumeru. Yumeru will then say that she hasn't done anything.
Katsu will say he knows this. The scene will change again and you will
see The Father Figure and Yumeru in a room.

   The Father Figure will tell Yumeru that he will take her where she 
wants to go, but in return she has to tell him where it is. Yumeru says
she doesn't have any time for this and that she needs to go return to her 
father. The Father Figure will ask what his name is. Yumeru will say it
is Kou Riren. The Father Figure then wonders if this is the same Kou
of the Koushou Army. Yumeru will ask how he knows. The Father Figure will
say by the reputation. The Father Figure then says that he hate to bring
you bad news but the Koushou Army was wiped out. He then goes on explaing
about their defeat. You will then see Katsuo outside listening. He can't
believe what his father figure is saying. And wonders about Yumeru. You
will then see Yumeru and Katsuo in a room. Katsuo will say that this
"Kou" isn't here. He then says that he is going. Yumeru says that she
isn't. Katsuo wants to know why she is waiting for someone who will
never show up. Katsuo will then wonder if Yumeru told the truth about
the Lapis. Yumeru will say there never was any Lapis. Yumeru then jumps
out of the window. Katsuo tells her to wait. Katsuo will be wondering
where she went, and then he thinks that she might have drowened in the
ocean. You will then hear a noise. Katsuo will realize that it is a 
Whirlpool. Katsuo then walks to the right and sees a Mermaid and wonders
if it is Yumeru. Yumeru will then explain that she was never human. Katsuo
will say that can't be. Yumeru tells him to hurry and get away, a Giant
Whirlpool is coming. Katsuo will then walk into the water and ask if 
Yumeru is going to search for her father. Yumeru will say nothing and
Katsuo will say that is a shock. Katsuo will then explain that she isn't
strong enough. Yumeru will tell him he is wrong. She explains that she 
isn't going to wait for the return of her father. Katsuo will wonder what
she means by this. Yumeru will then explain her mother is dead too. She
then explains her mothers death and about how she had to keep up her 
spirits after. She then decideds that this was the only way, and realizing
that she was stupid. She then goes on about how she is going to visit her
mother and father. Katsuo yells for her to stop. She tells him good-bye 
and then swims off. You will now see a FMV of the Whirlpool forming. After
that you will see a flashback of what you just saw. 

    You now see Katsuo on the beach telling himself that he was the stupid
one. Saying that he should have stopped her. Then a light will start to
come out of the water and a little blue ball will float. Katsuo will wonder
what it is. The game will then explain that when Mermaids die there spirits
will crystalize and create the Legendary Lapis. You will then see Katsuo
holding the Lapis. You will then hear Yumeru's voice asking Kastuo. He will
then say to himself that he was wrong. He doesn't want a ship, he want's
Yumeru Back. You then see him hold the lapis and wish that Yumeru would
come back. The Lapis then glows and you will see Yumeru fall down to the
bottom of the ocean, but then you hear Valkyrie talk about how the woman
isn't completely dead yet. Valkyrie then grabs Yumeru and says that because
of the wish she will take Yumeru to Valhalla. The Valkyrie says that she
has a little time left. You then see Katsuo on the beach thinking about
how he is waiting for Yumeru, but she will never come. Katsuo have another
flashback and then his Father Figure come onto the beach. He asks Katsuo
if that woman could have ever survived the Whirlpool. 

   After that you will be back on the World Map. Use your Soul 
Concentration and head to the Forgotten Caves.

---------------
Forgotten Caves
---------------

   A few of the monsters in this Cave are just way too strong. So just kill
what you can and then get out. After this you are done with Chapter 3. So 
it is time to move on to Extras(and there are alot).

------
Extras
------

   These are optional events you can do. You don't have to do them, but
they will generally add more to the story/make you stronger/get you a
better ending.

------------------------
God Katana:"Ryu Wizzard"
------------------------

   Head to Firan. The go all the way to the right. You will then see Minaso
near the temple. If you talk to her she will give you the God Katana:"Ryu
Wizzard". This is for Mages only. It's will raise your Magic Power by 600.

-------------
Lapis Pendant
-------------

   While in Firan, go to the beaches. When you do Yumeru will come out.
She will apoligize to Katsuo and then walk into the water. She will then
find this. It reduces Ice Damage by 50%.

-----------------
Naken:"Vain Slay"
-----------------

   Head to Camille Village. Take the second path that leads up. Now keep
walking to the left past the Girl. You will see a Sword in a pile of dirt.
Kashel will then come out and say that is his Sword and that Selia must
have left it. Valkyrie says he is probably right. Kashel then says that
there would be no harm in his taking it. After that you get the Sword.

-----------
Cliff Caves
-----------

   While in Camille Village you can still do this. Just walk to the left
of where you got the Naken:"Vain Slay". I have included a walkthrough of
this area.

Walkthrough-
   It is important that you have the Demon Slayer or otherwise this Boss
at the end will be very difficult for you. Anyways start by walking down
the stairs towards the right. Equip your Dragon Slayer and then take out
that Dragon Zombie. Behind the Dragon is a chest that contains a Bastard
Sword. Take that and the head all the way to the left. On the next screen,
take the first door that leads up. In that room you can find the Defend
Skill. After you have that head back down and to the left. Watch out for
the Statue and the Eye, both of them can freeze you. In this room climb
the ladder and the head to the left. You will now be in the room that
Kashel and Selia were in. Once you have grabbed the Naken:"Flare Baselard",
head back out and this time take the path to the left of the stairs. Now
run to the right and hop over the statue. Just keep heading to the right
and you will run into some Goo. Just have the Freeze Laser fire at the
Goo(you can get it to do this by having a crystal reflect it). When the goo
freezes swing at it. Now head to the right. In the next room take the
stairs and then head to the right. You can find a War Hammer and the skill
Trick Step. Now head to the left. Equip your Dragon Slayer and then take
out the Dragon Zombie. After that you can find an Eye of Heaven, a book
of Reduce Guard, and finally another Dragon Slayer. Head back to where you
first cut through the goo.Now take the path that leads down. If you head to
the left you will find more of that Goo that your sword can't cut through. 
So what you have to do is have that Freeze Laser reflect off of your 
crystal and freeze the goo. When you finally do this you will get 6000 
Experience. Now if you head to the left you will find another one of these.
This one is particularly hard to freeze. You have to use a couple of 
crystal to reflect the laser down to the goo. I found that this works best.

1)See where the Laser Shoots.
2)Put a Crystal There.
3)See where Laser is reflected too.
4)Put a Crystal there.

   I have found the best way to see the laser while it is firing, is to
slide underneath the crystals. Anyways, once you cut through it you will
get 12000 Experience. Now keep heading to the left. Run down the long 
flight of stairs and then put crystals at the bottom. A Laser wille 
eventually shoot and freeze the Goo. Slash at it and continue to the left.
Make sure you have your Dragon Slayer equipped and take out the Dragon.
The continue to the left. On the next screen, head to the right. Just 
follow the path down and eventually you will reach a Save Point. Save your
game and also make sure someone has a Demon Slayer equipped. After that,
then head to the right. When you enter you will see the Demon Servant that
killed Kashel. Valkyrie is supprised he is alive, saying that she thought
that that girl(Selia) would have killed him. The Demon Servant will say
that no human can kill him. Eventually the Demon Servant will transform and
you will enter battle with it.

-----------

   After the battle you can grab two artifacts. One is the Golden Chicken
and the Other is the Souken:"Gran String". You will then receive 30000
Experience for doing this, and you can now leave.

-------------
Bram's Castle
-------------

   This is the orange dot a little north of where the Dragon Palace/Firan
is. I have include a walkthrough for this area:

Walkthrough-

   Let me warn you that you have 4 minutes. Which is just about enough
to accomplish everything that you will want to do. You will want to get
all of the treasures(there are some good items here) and then you will want
to meet with Bram. Now that we have are objectives here, lets go on.

   Start by walking to the right. When you get on the next screen take
the path that leads up twice. Then make a left and you will be in a room
that has two chests hidden by a curtain. Once is the Naken:"Moon Phalanx"
and the other is the Unicorn Horn(very important, and you will see why
later). After you have those walk to the right and take the first path
that leads down. You will find an Ordinary Shape book in this room. Once
you have this just head up. Then continue to the right until you reach 
another area where you can head down. Go down to that room and you will
find some Bolt Sake. Then go back and to the right and take the next 
area that will let you down. You will then find a Beast Slayer(kills 
anything with Beast in its name in 1 hit). Leave this room and continue
walking to the right and you will reach a flight of stairs and a place
that you can go down. Take the flight of stairs to the Top and you will
be able to pick up the Skill of Combo Counter(very important) and a 
Nightshade. Once you have those go back down the stairs and take the 
route that leads down. You will have to keep heading down for four times
and then you will reach another corridor. If you walk to the right you
will find a Save Point. If you have above 3 mintues left then I would save,
if not don't save. After that head to the left. When you reach and area
that you can head up do so. You will find a Cure Plums book. Leave this
room and continue to the left. Head all the way to the left and you
will be able to find a Naken:"Flare Baselard". After you grab that head
back to the right and take the door that leads up. Head up two or three
times.

   Now walk to the left and up that door and you will find some Plant 
Seeds. After you have those leave that room and continue to the right. Take
the next door that leads up and in that room you will find the Skill Throw.
Leave that room and continue to the right. You should reach a flight of
stairs. Take the stairs up and head to the left and you will find a save
point. Save and then leave that room and make a jump to the right corner.
You will enter another room that has a huge monster in it. But before you
go up to him, head to the room that leads up and you can find a Lapis, a
War Hammer and a some Mithril Ore. Once you have those leave that room
and head down. In this room you can find a Stone Touch Spell and a Zebori.
Once you have those it is time to fight the Ram Guardian. This battle is
incredibly difficult, if you don't have a plan. This what I do:

Strategy:Make sure that your Mage has the Stone Touch spell. If you can
         successfully Stone the Ram Guardian it makes this much easier, if
         not, don't worry. He attacks about once for every three turns you
         have. Just use a Union Plum on the down time. Oh and yes he will
         kill any character in one hit. Now what you have to do is use some
         Good Clinchers(i.e. Valkyrie, Jun, Aluze, Rourry, Rofar) any of 
         those will do fine. I happened to use a party of Valkyrie, Jun,
         Kashel and Yumeru. But, anyways after you have him Stoned, just
         use your Clincher moves and hope you can kill him before he kills
         you. One last things, he has about 27,000 DME. The most so far.

   Once you have him killed head back to the save point that was at the
top of the stairs, and then continue left. You will then enter a room and
you will see Bram sitting on a Chair. Valkyrie will level her sword at
him and tell Bram to prepare himself. Bram will note that you came back
to end it. Valkyrie will wonder what he means by "end it". Bram will ask
Valkryie what she would be willing to make a little truce. Valkyrie
wonders what Bram is talking about. Bram will explain to Valkyrie that 
he cannot defeat Odin. Bram will then moves with such speed 
towards Valkyrie that it startles her. Bram will then tell her to make
her move. Bram then says that you don't have to fight. You will now get
to either A)Fight Him or B)Leave. You should choose B) since you only get
700 Experience and nothing really else. The only reason you should choose
A is if you want to see why he is the strongest fighter you can get. But,
if you do this is what happens. Valkyrie will level her sword again and
tells Bram that she will get rid of all Vampires. Bram then tells her
to look up. You will then see a Woman encased in a crystal. Valkyrie will
call him a Monster and swings at him. But, Bram is just too fast. You will
then enter battle. Which you can't win(well you can but I didn't want to 
waste my time). Anyways now if you choose B) Bram will tell you that you
made the right decision. Bram will then warp out. Valkyrie lowers her 
sword and wonders how that guy can have so much power. Then wonders about
why Odin is his enemy. Anyways you will now be on the World Map. Just
sleep and you can then go to the Sacred Phase.

----------------
Sacred Phase 3-4
----------------

   Frei will greet you. She will then give you the results. Here are mine.


Before:

   Earth God Race:23
   Van God Race:31
   Other:26

After:
 
   Earth God Race:24(+1)
   Van God Race:30(-1)
   Other:26

   Frei then asks if you want to see how your characters are doing. You
can look at that(not important). After that Frei will give you 9720 
Materlize Points. Frei then says that Odin has given you some items. Here
is what I got:

   Element Scepter
   Icicle Gem
   Burn Storm
   Darkness Arrow(Good)
   Reflect Sorcery
   Auto Item
   Naken:"Flame Fein"
   Holy Water
   Acceptor Rod

   Frei then told me what she was looking for. Here is what I was told

   Hero Possibilty:80
   Someone who has the upper hand in negotiations.
   Trick
   Demon Intelligence
   Hear Noise

   Frei Then Gives me a Good Luck and I was out. 

   I typically will transfer Sherad for this one. Both She and Yumeru are
pretty useless coming up, but Yumeru has more DME and that is what you need
so I just get rid of Sherad.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Start out by using your Soul Concentration. You will be told to head to
Valnova.

---
Amy
---

   When you enter Valnova will you will see a young woman chained up in 
some sort of torture chamber. Amy will then apoligize to everyone, since 
she didn't make it. The camera will then show you the torture chamber.
Valkyrie will then warp in near the door and walk down the steps and then
towards Amy. Amy will wonder who Valkyrie is. Valkyrie will explain that
she is someone who collects Souls. Amy then thinks that Valkyrie works for
the a Death God. Amy then says that she will never die. Valkyrie notes
that she sure has a loud voice, but okay. Valkyrie then leaves and the 
screen will go blank.

   When the screen comes back up you will see an Old Man and Two Soldiers
near Amy. Soldier A says that Gannos is going to test a Spell on Amy. 
Gannos explain that his strongest spell calls apon the blood of a Dragon. 
Amy then wonders if Gannos is talking about the Jewel Dragon(Carbunkle).
Gannos then says that you can stay down here a while longer. Gannos and
the Soldiers then leave. Amy will then keep telling herself that she won't
die. But then notes that she has to stop him. The Soldiers will come back
and tell Amy that they will feed her now. Gannos will then go over and
asks if Amy is ready to talk now. Amy will call him an asshole and then
Gannos will get very upset and that he will show her. Gannos then gathers
energy around him and blasts Amy. 

   You will now see Amy with Valkyrie. Amy will ask Valkyrie if she wants
her power to fight for the Gods. Amy will then say why not. Valkyrie will
talk about the strength of the body and about how Amy will find out. Amy
will then say that she understans. Valkyrie then asks her to join the 
party. After that the Valkyrie will then think that Gannos might just be
useful. And then you will back on the World Map with Amy in your party. 
Make sure that you get a Heart Pierce for Amy. After that use your Soul 
Concentration and it will tell you to head to the Dark Tower of Zelva.

-----------------------
The Dark Tower of Zelva
-----------------------

   Start walking to the right and when you reach the next room, if you 
climb to the top you can find an Eye of Heaven. Now, jump up and take
the top right door. Now continue up the stairs to the right. After you 
walk up the next flight of stairs you can find a Poison Blow. Once you have
that, jump to the left. Continue all the way to the left and you will 
eventually reach a room that contains three chests(Bastard Sword, War 
Hammer, Auto Item). Once you have those work your way back to the where you
got the Eye of Heaven and take the second route. Head to the right and at
the top of the stairs you can find a chests that contains a Hit. Now, jump
to the left. When you enter the room you will notice that it is a Heart, but
it is not beating. The game the recommends that you slash it. So slash it
and it will start beating again. You will get a 12000 Bonus for doing that.
However when you did that you also activated those jaw things in the floor.
So you will have to watch out for them now. Anyways head back to the first
Eye of Heaven room and take the bottom path. Now walk to the right for one
screen and you will enter a fairly big room. Fall all the way to the bottom
left and you can find a chest that has a Crystal in it. Now head to the top
right and you can find a Mandrake. If you try to leaves this room, you see
that it is blocked. So what you have to do is jump into those jaws. You 
will now enter a weird room. But, In this wierd room you can find an 
incredible weapon; The Mage Slayer. It is really hidden. But, you can find
it near the left hand side, near that gray thing, but behind the Orange
thing. Also right next to the Mage Slayer you can find one of the Lotus
Gems(which are also very important). Once you have found both of these jump
onto the Middle Gray thing and you will be taken back to that room but,
this time the door will be open. So head to the right. In the next room
that wall will remain there until the Eye shows up. So what you have to
do is when the Eye shows up is run to the right. In the next room take the
upper path that leads to the left. Head all the way left and you can find
a Naken:"Flare Baselard" and some Holy Remains. Now head back to the right
and this time take the bottom path that leads to the left. Head to the left
for one more screen and then you will reach a room where you will have to
jump from platform to platform to make it to the left. Continue to the left
until you find a door that leads to the upper right. Enter the door and
you can find you will find another Heart you can slash(12000 Experience) 
and also an Invisibility Herb. Once you have those head back out. Head to
the bottom left and you can fight an Iron Golem. It has quite a bit of HP,
but if you beat it you get 14000 Experience. After you have done that, open
the chest and you will get a Lightning Bolt book. Now head to the top left
door. In the next room you can find a Noise Arrow. After you have that fall
down and head to the left. If you jump to the left you can find some 
Invsibility Herb and to the right you can find a Poison Blow. Once you have
those, head to the bottom right. In the next room grab the Plant Seed and
the Lapis, then fall to the bottom. Now just head all the way to the right
until you reach the Save Point. Stop and Save your Game and make sure that
you are powered up, since this next battle is not an easy one.

   When you walk to the right you will see a Monster that looks like
an Eyeball with Snakes coming out of its head. Valkyrie will say that this
Monsters looks like it is from the Princess of Hell. Valkyrie then says
that she won't allow the Princess of Hell in the Human World. The Hell
Servant will then talk about how get the Princess is and then calls for
reinforcements. You will now enter a battle.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:2x Hell Servants

HP:22000
   
Recommended Level:11

Attacks:3x Physical

EXP:28000

Strategy:At the Start of this battle Valkyrie will explain that these 
         Monsters have the Ability of Resurrections. So in order to beat
         this battle you will have to take them both out in the same round.
         Which just makes this battle more difficult. Now here is the 
         Strategy that I find works best. One the first round I use 
         Clinchers to take down one of there HP to just about 2 or 3 hits.
         Then in the next round I do the same to the other. Then I just
         use Normal Attacks to take them out. By the way, it helps if you
         have something that prevents Faint. That way, you can always 
         attack. Also the skill Guts is extremely helpful here. And one 
         last thing, Magic doesn't really work on these Guys. This is 
         probably the first Hard battle. 

   After that tough battle you can find three Artifacts. The first is
The Secret of Resurrection, the next is the Seiken:"Lost Seraphy", and the
last is Snake Halbred:"Basilisk". I recommend that you take the Lost Serphay
and the Basilisk. The Lost Seraphy will increase your chance of getting
Mystic Gems and the Baslisk will have a 10% chance of stoning an enemy.
After you decide you will get 60000 Experience for doing all of this. Now
it is time to leave. You can get out quicker by falling into one of the 
Jaws and then take the middle gray thing. Anyways once you reach the
World Map, use your Soul Concentration. You will then be told to goto
the Forgotten Caves.

---------------
Forgotten Caves
---------------
  
   These Monster you can kill with No Problem. Just make sure that you have
your Slayer Weapons ready for the few monsters that you can only do 0-1 
Damage on. Anyways just work your way through and when you can done leave.
When you get to the World Map, it's time to use your Soul Concentration.
You will be told to goto Saxxs Den.

---------
Saxxs Den
---------

   Start by heading to the left and you will walk down a long hill. In the
next room jump over the water and continue to head to the left. Quick Note,
equip your Dragon Slayer before you attack the dragon that you see in the
water. Anyways use hop the platforms in the water to keep going to the
left until you reach the next room. In the next room take the route that
leads up and you will be able to grab a Eye of Heaven. Now take the route
that leads down. When you reach the next room go all the way to the left
and then slide. You will be able to get a chest that has the Skill Strike
Edge. Then take the route that leads down. Now head down into the water
and swing your sword at the plant that is under the water. The top of the
plant will then float. Now make a Hard Crystal and toss it in the water.
Then what you need to do is jump from the Crystal to the Plant and then
to the right(Or you can just jump on the plant before it rises). After you
cross you will reach a Save Point(so Save). If you walk to the left you 
will see the Body and Soul of a dead Priest. Talk to the Soul and he will 
tell you that you will need the get rid of the Water Gate Seal inorder to 
clear the Water Gate. If you talk to the body you will find out that this 
guy was a Magician from Flansburg. Anyways continue to the right. When you 
reach a wall there will be a route that leads down near it, so take it. 
Anyways go underwater and walk all the way to the left. Cut that plant and 
hop on to it before it rises. Then just take the exit to the left. Now fall
down into the pool of water and take the route that leads down. Work your
way through the underwater cave to the left and you will be able to find
a Naken:"Flare Baslard". After you have that go back and this time work
your way up and to the left. Now when you have a choice of a high road
or low road take the low road first. When you enter the room you should
see a Water fall and an Orb behind it. Shoot your Crystal at the Orb and
you will get 2000 Bonus Experience. Then go back and take the high road.
Now just press O at the little stand and you will then see a FMV scene
of how the Water Gate closed. Then just fall down that hole in the ground
and head to the left. Continue walking until to the left and you will reach
a Save Point. Save your game and then head to the left and fall down.

   You will see a room that has a huge glowing Pentagram on it. Valkyrie
will wonder if this is causing the trouble. Valkyrie will then realize that
she will have to destroy the seal. She then surround herself with energy
and thinks for a moment. Valkyrie will then destroy the Seal, but the 
entire building is shaking now. Valkyrie will wonder what is going on. 
A monster will then break through the wall and attack.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:
     Kraken
     3x Crab Servants

HP:
     Kraken:24000
     Crab Servants:1000
   
Recommended Level:18

Attacks:
     Kraken:Lightning Bolt, Wiping Fire,
     Crab Servants:Physical

Weaknesses:
     Kraken:Poison,
     Crab Servants:Fire,

EXP:25500

Strategy:Valkyrie will explain the whole damage system before this battle
         starts. Anyways this battle was easy for me. If you already went
         through the Forgotten Caves you have already fought the Kraken. 
         You will need to watch out for the Kraken. Since it can do quite
         a bit of damage. Also if you have the spell Poison Blow, when you
         use that it does a lot of damage too. Anyways just use normal 
         attacks on the Crab Servants and then use Clinchers on the Kraken.

   After the battle you can grab two artifacts. The Bracelet of Life and
the Coin of Fortune. After you have those you will get a message telling
you got 60000 Bonus Experience. Once you have that leave the Saxxs Den. Oh
and if on the way out you tell the Magician that you closed the seal, you
will get another 500 Experience. Once you get out, Use your Soul 
Concentration and it will tell you to head to Flansburg. 

-------------------------
The Tower of Rezard Valis
-------------------------

   The scene will open up with a Man in Black with a Blue Cape, and a 
Frankstein-like Monster carrying a woman are running. The Frankstein(his
name is Beleon) will ask Master Rezard what they are going to do about the
people following them. Rezard (my favorite character) will tell Beleon not
to worry. Rezard the tells him to go on ahead. Beleon then say that he 
will. Rezard will then surround him self with energy and his Character
Voice will the recite a spell. After a monster the Dragon Tooth Warrior
will appear to stop the two people approaching. Rezard will say that this
should be able to hold you. A Harpy will then appear and Rezard will jump
on its back. He then tells the Elves that this is the end of the Play. One
of the Elves will tell Rezard to wait. The Harpy then flies away. The scene
will shift to that of a Dungeon and you will see the woman from before, 
chained up. Beleon will come in and say that Master Rezard told him to
guard the woman. Beleon will start walking down the stair and then a light
comes from the woman. Beleon wonders what is going on. The Woman will then
think that she has to break these chains. Beleon will walk towards as the
woman says she almost has it. Beleon will then grab his head and shout out
in pain. Beleon then grabs the woman and the woman thinks that Beleon has
quite a grip. However the both sizzle with electricity and are thrown to
the floor. Beleon is knocked out, so the woman gets up to leave, but Rezard
is already at the door. Rezard will note what good timing he has. Rezard
will then tell the girl that was really clever. But, Rezard then goes
on to explain that Beleon is a Homosclosus(I wish I could make that in
to a more Latin term, but it's good enough)which is a Man Made body. The
Elf will wonder about that. Rezard will then say that her face is really
too pale, and the guesses it must be his Charm. Rezard then continues to
explain that a Homosclosus is just a Human Body and a Soul. He then 
continues to say that it is regretable that he lost Beleon. So that's why
he hopes that she will particpate. The Elf wonders what he is talking
about. Rezard then says all he was suggesting was transforming her. But,
Rezard goes on to say the Humans and Elves he uses are kind of like cotton.
Rezard(laughing)then says that Beleon is a different case then her. Rezard 
tells a joke that comes out somthing like Cotton is the Partner to Cotton. 
The Elf then tells him to goto hell. Rezard will note that his Cotton is 
unhappy. Rezard then talks about the Knowledge of the Gods. The Elf will be 
shocked. Rezard will then notices that, that got her attention. Rezard
will then say that he holds the "Sage Stone", and says that natually she
should know about it. The Elf will wonder about the Sage Stone. Rezard then
goes on to say that having so much knowledge didn't come easy to him. He
goes on to say that he had to search all of the world, and now it is his.
The Elf will call him a Devil. Rezard will grab the Elf and then tells
his Cotton to stop that. Rezard then lets go of the Elf and talks about
how he is the first to accomplish this and about he can have everything
he wants. Rezard then goes on to say that they can do nothing to stop him.
You will then hear Rezard talk about how the elves all remeber the 
Knowledge.

   The scene will now be changed to that of a party. A Student will be
comment about the Party. The Principal(Rolenta) will that the student. 
Rolenta then says that she wished Meltina was her. The Student will agree.
You will now see Rolenta walking through the streets late at night. She
will be wondering when this person gets up. Rolenta will then comment that
she found it. She then walks up to the house. Rolenta will wonder if this
person is lonely. Rolenta will walk up to the door, but a cat will soon
follow. Rolenta walks over to the cat and wonders what it is doing here. 
The cats eyes will then flash red and the cat will then speak. The cat will
bring a message from Rezard Valis that says to come to the tower, I have
someone, etc. Rolenta will be shocked and then wonder about this Rezard 
Valis, then realizing who he is. You will now see the Cat and Rolenta at
the Tower, with Rezard and a body near him. Rezard will greet his Master.
Rolenta will wonder why he harmed this person body. Rolenta then wonders
how he can do such a thing, saying that she revived him. Rezard will wonder
what she ment by revived. Rezard will talk about his time in school, and
about the past. Rolenta will then tell him he is wrong, and wonders why
he did this. Rezard will talk about his partners, and then talks about
the timing. Rolenta wonders what he is talking about. Rezard then says
that he is going to feel sad but, die. Rezard then powers up a spell as
Rolenta will say that he should think this through. Rezard will then 
disappear in a red star. Rolenta will note that he used Telportation, and
then wonders how he ever gain so much power. She then wonder why he choose
this path. The rains will then start to fall. Rolenta walks over to the
body and asks if he is okay. The Man (simply knowen as Betrothed) notices
that it is Rolenta. Rolenta says that she is here and not to worry. The
Betrothed then tells her that his body is going to change, because of 
somthing that man did. His body will the start to flash. The Betrothed
keeps talking about his body changing. Rolenta will aplogize saying that
she couldn't do anything. His body keeps flashing and Rolenta says that
she is sorry. The man then says that you should kill him. Rolenta say that
she can't do that. The screen will then flash.

   You will now see Rezard in his lab. He will talk about how he can feel
the Undead Moving. Rezard then continues by say that he will make that 
Woman feel true insanity. Rezard continues by saying that Valkyrie should
hurry can come. You will now see A Giant Monster that has Rolenta by the
neck. Rolenta will be saying that she loved him. The screen will
then flash red and the head of the monster will come off. You will see
Valkyrie warp in and take the Soul of Rolenta and then take the steps 
down...

   First thing you need to do is Save. This is your first big maze. Also
replace your Mage with Rolenta. The reason why is that she comes with a
spell that makes this dungeon a breeze; The Cross Airrade. This spell will
help you get through the dungeon until you can get make a better spell;
Prismic Missle. Anyways start by heading up the door that is right next to
the Save Point. Then head into the Elevator. Get off at the first stop of
the elevator and head up. Now if you head to the left you can fight a
Manticore. Do this to gain experience then walk all the way to the right
and take the path leading down. Now walk to the left for two screens and
then take the path that leads up. Walk to the right and you will find a
Manticore, kill it and continue to the right. If you keep walking to the
right you will reach a chest that had a Writings of the Immortals in it.
After you have that head back to the room with the elevator and then head
down. Take the next exit on the elevator and then take the door down. Just
take the path that leads around(this is just to gain Experience). After you
have done that head back to the Save Point. Now head to the left and take
the door that is on the next screen and then take the elevator. Get off at
the first location and you can find two treasure chests. One conatains a
War Hammer(Poison Arrow Trap) and an Eye of Heaven(Explosion Trap). Once
you have those get back on the Elevator and take it to the next stop. Take
the door that leads down and the first head to the right to pick up the 
Skill Splash. Once you have that equip your Dragon Slayer and kill the 
Dragon Zombie. Then head to the left and take the door. Now head to the
right. Keep heading to the right until you take the stairs down. Then start
going to the left. Go past the first door you see and take the second. 
Continue heading to the right until you can take a route that leads down.
Now start heading to the left and you will reach a Manticore. Kill it, and
then take the two chests behind it. One is a Nightshade(Poison Arrow 
Trap) and the other is the spell Cool Dazzel. After you have both of those
take the passage that you saw earlier and passed by . Head into the 
Elevator and take it down. Get off at the first stop and head to the 
left. Equip your Dragon Slayer and then kill the 2 Dragon Zombies. Go past
where the Dragon Zombies where and you will be able to find a chest that
contains The Teaching of Asa. After you have that head to the right. Now
go up and kill that Manticore and continue to the left and take the door
that leads up. Now walk to the right. Now keep walking to the right and
enter the door. Walk up to the top of the stairs, kill the Manticore, and
then continue walking to the left. You will now be in a room that has a
Female Statue holding a crystal. Slash at the crystal and it will light
up. You will also get a 12000 Experience Bonus for doing this. Now head
back to where you went to the right and this time goto the left. Head 
through the door and in the next room walk up the stairs to the left. Take
the route that leads down and you will eventually reach a Save Point. Save
the game and then head to the right of that room. You will then find 3
treasure chests that contain the Skill;Dancing Sword, Lapis and somthing
eles(I forgot). Anyways once you have those head back out and continue left
down the stairs. Enter the door and then head once again to the left. Now
equip your Dragon Slayer and kill the Dragon Zombie, and then head to the
right. You will then have to slash at the crystal again to make it glow,
and when you do you will get a 12000 Experience Bonus. After that head
back to where the Elevator was but, this time there will be a pentagram
where the Manticore was standing. It will ask you if you want to warp, so
just choose the top answer. This will warp you to a new area. 

   Walk to the right for two screen and then take the stairs that lead up.
Now walk to the left for two screens and you will be in a room that has 
three treasure chests. The first conatins the Transformation Gem, the other
has an Ether Scepter and the last contains the Timer Ring. Now that you
have the Transformation Gem this dungeon is a breeze(if you were playing
in Normal). But, Because we are in Hard we can't get an Orihalcon just
yet. So that just makes the Dungeon that much tougher. Since you can't make
any good items with just the Transformation Gem, I will continue.

   Once you are done with those items, head to the Save Point that was near 
the two crystal statues. There will be a warp by it. Save your game and 
then head into the warp. You will now be in a room that has two chests on 
the right. Take the chests and then head to the left. 

   Rezard will welcome the Goddess Valkyrie. He will say that it looks like
you have backed him up into a corner. Valkyrie will walk towards him and
Rezard will be talking about how many months has he waited to become the
smartest. Rezard will then says that Valkyrie looks very lovely. Rezard
will then cast a spell that makes him disappear. Valkyrie will notice that
he is Teleporting and in shock wonders how he can use that spell. Rezard
then says that in time Valkyrie and he will be the same. Rezard talks about
how he plans to use peoples spirits to make himself a God. Valkyrie will
be speechless at this. Rezard then repeats himself and says that he has
a weapon for this too. Rezard the reappears farther away from Valkyrie.
He asks Valkyrie is an Elf can become a God then he should be able to
too. He then tells Valkyrie that he will be that same as her. Valkyrie asks
if he really thinks that all this can work. Rezard says that he 
understands. Valkyrie then goes on to say that she won't allow him to turn
anymore Souls into Homosclosus and harm Elves. Rezard will say that 
Valkyrie is observant and says that one day they will be the same. Valkyrie
will say that Rezard is insane and that she will have to kill him. Rezard
then disappears as Valkyrie tries to Slash at him, but Valkyrie was 
actually aiming at the tank that had the Elf Girl in it. The tank will then
drain out. Rezard will then say that it looks like he will have to use some
of his abilities. You then get in a fight.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:
     Rezard Valis
     2x Dragon Tooth Warrior

HP:
     Rezard Valis:10000
     Dragon Tooth Warrior:14000
   
Recommended Level:21

Attacks:
     Rezard Valis:Celestial Astral, Meteo Swarm, Prismic Missle, 
                  Cool Dazzel
     Dragon Tooth Warrior:Advance Sword X, Posses

Weakness:
     Dragon Tooth Warrior:Holy,

EXP:0

Strategy:This Boss battle is much Harder in Hard. You won't have the
         Advantage of being able to Celestial Astral/Meteo Swarm 
         everything. So what you have to do is use Clinchers and take out
         the Dragon Tooth Warriors first. The work on Rezard. The problem
         is, that Rezard can now kill you with his Celestial Astral. So
         you have to be careful of it. If you want, you can use the Dragon
         Slayer to take out both of the Warriors quickly. Anyways much 
         tougher than in Normal.

   After the battle Rezard will start to teleport and as he does he
tells you that he looks forward to meeting you again. Valkyrie will tell
him not to run away and then asks him again if he really thinks that Gods
and Humans can be the same and as that they can't. Rezard will say that 
was an interesting thought. Then he tells Valkyrie one day He and she will
exsist in the same as the same. Valkyrie then says that they can never
be the same since Odin is their Father(Not Father in that since, but closer
to meaning leader). Rezard then says who knows, one day they might fall in
love. Valkyrie will tell him that he is disgusting. Rezard will then say
that he will see her later. The screen will go blank and Valkyrie thinks
about that comment about Rezard and Valkyrie one day them being the same. 

   Valkyrie will now walk into a place that has tons of people in capsules.
Valkyrie will wonder what this place is. She will then wonder how that man
could have done this. Valkyrie then goes up and starts breaking the 
Capsules. Valkyrie will break to of them and just as she is about to smash
the third one she sees somthing and notices that it is a child. Valkyrie 
then wonders why...

   You will now be on the world map and have finshed everything that you
can do in this chapter. Now just sleep for the rest of the time(or if
you are more productive than I am, go into The Tower of Rezard Valis and
gain some more levels). Anyways Frei will then come and greet you.

   After you have sent up Yumeru, it is time to get on with the Events. Use
your Soul Concentration and you will be told to head to Flansburg.

-------
Meltina
-------

   A Man in a robe will be standing in the middle of the Magic School. A
Woman will then walk by him. The Man(Titled "Magic School Graduate") will
call out for Meltina. The Man will wonder what Meltina could possibly be
doing at this time. Meltina says that she is going to go out and look for
love with Mr. Right. The Man will be shocked at this. Meltina will then
say that was a joke. Meltina will then ask the Man what he is doing. The
Man won't answer at first and then says that Princepal Rolenta hasn't been
seen. Meltina will wonder about this. Meltina will then walk off the 
screen. She will be thinking about Rezard Valis and says that she isn't in
the mood for killing, but you have to do what you have to do.

   Meltina will now be in what appears to be a Labratory. Meltina will
say that it doesn't seem like there was any death here. She will then 
thank Rezard and blow a kiss. Meltina will start walking over to a 
container she will say that today it is pretty chilly. Meltina will then
walk into the machine and next thing you know she will be tranported to
Rezard's Tower. Meltina will walk through the tower when she realizes that
the entire Tower is giving Magic Power. Meltina will then wonder if this
writing could have anything to do with it, as she walks up to it. Meltina
will be supprised that they are the Ruin Literature. She will then note
that he has Volume 4, Volume 14 and Volume 22. Meltina will wonder what
he(Rezard) would need all of this Towers Power for. Meltina will now be
in right outside Rezards Lab when wonders what those noises are. She then
notices a book by Rezards. She walks over to it and opens it, but can't
understand any of it. Meltina will now walk into Rezards Lab and will see
the thing in the Container and realize that it is a Man Made Body. Meltina
will say that's cruel and then notes that it is a Homosclosus. She then 
wonders what he would need with a little girl. Meltina then realizes that
he must be expermenting with transformations. Meltina then powers up a 
spell that turns the child inside into a crystal. 

   You will now see Meltina at home sitting down for a drink. She will
say that the Rezard she knew would have been planning somthing better. 
Rezard will say that he is sorry as he warps in. Meltina will say that it
has been a long time and offers Rezard a drink. Rezard will walk over for
the drink and as the pour it, Meltina wants to know where he ever got
his hands on that power. Rezard will say that spell is a tough question to 
answer. Meltina will wonder what he has done, and why has he changed. 
Rezard will ask what that means. Meltina then hits him with the glass.
Rezard will say that he can't answer that. Meltina will then ask why
he said he would never change. She then goes on to say that she hates him.
Rezard then answers saying that he posses the Sage Stone. Meltina will
not believe him, and then Rezard says that she could have read it on Page
100 of the book she was reading. After a while Rezard says that he would
like a favor of Meltina. Meltina will ask what he would need her for. 
Rezard then asks Mel is she would like to go make Homosclosus with him.
Meltina will eventually give in. And a message will come up on the screen
saying that Meltina only did that to find out what Rezard is up to.

  You will be back in the first Labratory and Rezard will ask if she really
wants to do this. Meltina says that she would like to gain more Magic 
Power like those from the Yaggdrasil Forest. Rezard will say that Mel 
hasn't changed much. Meltina will say that Rezard hasn't changed much 
either. A message on the screen will say that what Meltina saw next seems 
like a dream. Both Rezard and Mel will walk over to that child and Meltina 
will ask if this is a Homosclosus and that it all seems like a dream. 
Rezard will not say much. She then goes on to say that if this works it 
would turn this person it to someone really incredible. Rezard will say 
nothing. Rezard then says he would like to speak with Mel about the 
Yaggdrasil Forest. Meltina then wonders if it is about the Elves.

   You will now be in the Yaggdrasil Forest. Rezard will say that they are
here. Meltina will say this is impossible. Rezard will say that ordinarily
it would be. Meltina will then wonder what happened to all of the Elves.
She then notes that there is nothing in the forest and calls Rezard a 
monster. Rezard then says that it bother him. Meltina will be supprised at
that and asks him why. Rezard will say its because anything the Elves knew
has been lost. Meltina will note the the Yagdrasil Tree is still and as
long as it is the world will never die and the journey will continue. 
Rezard agrees saying that there is much Humans don't know. Meltina will say
he sounds like a Nature Teacher. Rezard will say that he might...a little.
Rezard then says that once his Labratory turns out Homosclosus he says
that it will be quite amusing . Meltina will wonder what that means. A 
message comes up from Rezard talking about how Elves and Humans and Gods
inhabit this world and how with his Weapon of God it will be the same.
As you approach the Elf Village Meltina will be wondering about somthing.
Rezard will explain that Elfs and Gods are very similar. And so if he can
give birth to a God then...Meltina understands. Rezard then explains that
Odin is a Half-Elf. Meltina will wonder where he learned that. Rezard will
then explain that he spoke with those Gods who know him. Meltina will 
wonder how Rezard was able to talk to the Gods. Rezard will explain that
right now Odin is in the middle of a battle. Meltina says that she can't
fully understand what he is saying.

   You will now see Rezard in front of the Yaggdrasil Tree. Rezard will
tell Odin that he is Weak for a God. Rezard will then say that is why
they need a new king. Rezard asks Mel if she understands this. Meltina
will say that she understands a little. Rezard then says that the only
difference between a Human and a God is that the God has a perfect body.
Meltina will then say that Odin is wrong if he really a Half-Elf. Rezard
will agree and the say that same things as above and continues saying 
that's why they need a stronger King. You will be back in the Lab as Rezard
talks about how Humans can become Gods with the help of the Elves and the
Knowledge of the Yaggdrasil Tree. That's why with the spirit of a Human
and the Knowledge of the Elf they can become a God. Rezard then asks if
Meltina knows what a Homosclosus is. Meltina will say that it is a mix
of Human and Elf. Rezard will say she is right, a Homosclosus is a Half
Elf. Rezard then says once he can make the right Homosclosus he will 
transfer his soul into it and become a God. The screen will then go blank
and come up again. Rezard says that is all that it to his plan. He then
walks away saying that he has to get back and warps out. 

   You will now see Meltina walking the streets of Flansburg. She will be
thinking about what Rezard said. Meltina will say that it could never be.
You will hear Rezard and he will ask Mel if she desires to be a god.
Rezard then goes on by saying that the Homosclosus is the only way he can
figure out. Rezard will then say that she would have made a Lovely Godess,
but Rezard will be the only God. Meltina will wonder where Rezard is. You 
will see Rezard warp into the Labratory. Rezard will then say that he knows
what Mel is up to. Rezard then says that she knows too much, and this
isn't a dream. You will then see Rezard power up a spell. A FMV will show 
how Rezard froze the entire Labratory. You will then see Rezard outside 
saying that he will miss you...and then starts laughing. Rezard then 
teleports out. You will now see Valkyrie with Meltina. Valkyrie asks 
Meltina what she is doing with Rezard. Meltina will laugh at the thought.
Then Valkyrie wonders if Meltina wouldn't like to work for her. Meltina 
will think about it and, eventually give in. After that you will be on the 
World Map. I find that Meltina will last quite a while as a character. 
Anyways, now you use your Soul Concentration again and you will be told to 
goto Chevron.

-----
Rucio
-----
 
   You will see a man sitting by himself on the steps when a group of 
kids come out. The boy in the lead will ask if there is anything wrong.
The Man(Rucio) will say that there is nothing wrong. The children will
then walk away and Rucio will be thinking. He talks about how the children
shouldn't worry about him. The scene will changed to that of a small
house. A Woman(Clair) asks what they made. Rucio will say at first
say 220, but then arrives at 230. The man on the far left(Baren) will say
that he was sure effecient.  The Other Man(Rusty) will say he is an Idiot.
Rucio will then say that he is glad that he used to his strength to help
people today. You will now see Clair and Rucio by themselves. Clair will
say that Baren and Rusty are late. A Townsman will enter the door and says
that they need to get out of here, asking if they know a Baren. Rucio will
wonder about this. The Townsman will say that Baren stole from the Royal
Family and that's why they killed him...Clair will be in shock. The 
Townsman will talk about how this is a bad situation and says that they
are all going to die. The Townsman continue by saying that the Royal Family
is sending the 3rd Group after them. Rucio will be in shock at this. The
Townsman will say to get out of there, saying The 3rd Group has a bad
reputation. Clair will ask what happened to Rusty. The Townsman will say
he is alive and that he is getting out of here. He then leaves. Rucio says
that they have to get out of here. Then Clair will ask about the Children.
Rucio says that Clair should go get the children, while he distracts them.
Clair will try and get him to stop, but Rucio contines by asking her to get
all of the Townspeople into the forest. 

   You will now see Clair on the groud crying as the City has been leveled.
Clair will talk about how cruel the 3rd is. Clair then continues by saying
that she wants to die. Rucio will tell her not to talk like that. You will
then see an Archer take aim and shoot at Rucio. Clair will cry out for
Rucio. Rucio will then be hit and pulls out his sword. The screen will then
flash and you will now see Rucio in the lap of Clair. Rucio will ask if 
this place will be okay. Clair will be wondering why. Rucio says it looks
like she will stay here. Clair wonders what he is talking about, and asks
him if he trying to run away. Rucio will say she is wrong. He goes on to
say that his place was Death a long time ago. Clair will say that she 
should be right beside him. Rucio will then say that he is sorry. Rucio
will then die as Clair lets out a giant cry. You will now see Valkyrie
listening as a Child calls for his Mother, and cries about the pain. 

   You will now see Valkyrie with Rucio. Rucio will ask who see is and then
realize that it is the War Goddess Valkyrie. Valkyrie then asks if Rucio
would like to help her. Rucio eventually gives in. Rucio will then wonder
what will happen to Clair. Valkyrie will say that she will be okay. And
you will then see Clair standing on a Mountain, looking at the sky. You
will now be back on the World Map. Now put Rucio in your party at once and
you will soon understand why. He is an Incredible Fighter. Anyways use
your Soul Concentration and then head to the Forgotten Caves.

---------------
Forgotten Caves
---------------
 
   This is a good oppertunity to gain Levels for Meltina and Rucio. You
will probably have them die the first couple battles. But, eventually
they will be strong enough to survive. Anyways once you have killed all
of the Monster, use your Soul Concentration. You will now have to goto
Valnova.

-------
Badluck
-------

   As the scene opens you will see Badluck underneath a bridge at night.
He will be wondering if this is where he is supposed to be. Badluck will
then walk to the center of the screen and wonder where they are. A Voice
will say that they are already here. Badluck will be shocked at this. A
Man in black will then jump from the top of the bridge and slash Badluck.
The Assassin will then tell Badluck he got what he deserved. Badluck will
go down to his knees. The screen will then flash and you will be in a 
flashback. An Old Woman(Jenna)will be standing outside a house. She will
be yelling up to the window wondering how long it will be before you get
to work. A younger Badluck will walk to the window and asks what he would
know about work and then says he doesn't have the time. Jenna will wonder
what he is talking about, saying that he should go look for work now.
Badluck will then eventually give in. As Badluck walks out the front door
the scene will go into color. Badluck will ask Jenna what he would be able
to do in times of War. Jenna will say that he answered his own question
and that she can take care of the house. Badluck will ask about those
flowers. Jenna will say that it is called a Cactus. Badluck will wonder
about this Cactus. Jenna will say that they are a plant that will give
a flower. Badluck will talk about how it is sharp and Jenna will reply that
is how it protects itself. Badluck will say that he understands, it is just
he would grow a different plant. Badluck then goes on to wonder how he is
going to make any Gold. Jenna will tell him to get involved in the War.
Badluck will then slowly agree. You then see Badluck walk into a room
with alot of people and asks if there is anyway he can make a lot of
gold quickly. The Woman(Knowen as a "Female Agent") will wonder why he
would come here. Badluck will then say that he is going to start the
Valnova Thieves Guild and then asks who wants to join. The Female Agent
will say that she needs proof of this and he should return when he has it.
Badluck says that he will be back and then leaves. You will now see Badluck
standing outside of the building and wonders how a man is supposed to make
any Gold. You will now see an injured Badluck limping along. Badluck says
he will have to make this brief. Badluck will make it to the house and 
wonders if they are there(this is the first time you see just how injured
Badluck is). The view of the house will change and Badluck will kneel by
the flowers. He will then wonder why he would come here when he is going
to die... Badluck then asks for someone to help him with the pain.

   The screen will go dark and Badluck will note this. A voice will then
say that he won't die, and that she will help him with the pain. Badluck
will wonder who he called. You will then see another Badluck, except this
one is lifeless. Badluck will wonder what is going on. And if he is dead
or alive. Valkryie will warp in and Badluck will ask who the hell are you.
Badluck will then realize and become very happy, when he thinks he will
get to go to Valhalla. Valkyrie will tell him he is wrong. Badluck will
ask whats going on and if you are really Valkyrie. Badluck then goes on
to say that when he dies you are supposed to take him to Valhalla. Valkryie
will say ordinarly yes, But... Badluck will inquire about this. Valkyrie
will then explain that she doesn't need him. Badluck will say that he 
he should be taken. Valkyrie says that she won't present him to Odin. And
goes on to say Badluck can spend his time as a Soldier of Hell. Badluck
will tell Valkyrie to wait, saying that he doesn't want to goto Hell.
He then goes on about how he doesn't want to die. Valkyrie then says that
she just came to talk to him. Badluck will be a little more relieved and
asks what she wants to talk about. Badluck will say it must be about the
Old Man. Valkyrie will wonder about this Old Man. Badluck will say that
he killed him. Valkyrie will then tell him that he is going to Hell. 
Badluck will then ask for Valkyrie to help him saying that he hasn't done
many bad things except being a Spy, a Thief, and chasing Women. Valkyrie
will say she is disgusted. Valkyrie will then tell him he still has some
time left. Badluck will tell her to wait. Valkyrie will then say that he
doesn't have much time left. You will then see a bud and a message 
will come up on the screen talking about how the Cactus will flower in the
Moonlight etc.(i.e. Metaphor for Badluck). You will then see the bud
bloom into a beautiful flower. Badluck will realize what she is trying to
do.

   You will then hear Badluck talk about how he was different 3 or 4 years
ago. You will now see some cells while Badluck talks about how he taking
a Job from Valnova. Badluck then says that he will make this quick and 
then talks about his job and who he worked for(not important). You will 
then look at a poor town while Badluck talks about how he was sent there.
He then talks about how they didn't have much to eat and then talks about
how it is near Valnova. He continues by saying he stayed with someone, but
he couldn't remeber there name. Badluck then stops and wonders if you want
him to keep telling the story. You will now see Badluck next to a Horse
with a Cart. He then talks about how he didn't want to take the job, but
he needed the money. You will then see Badluck and a little girl in a 
Graveyard. Badluck will talk about how the kid and him talked about the 
weather. Anyways this continues saying that he never had a home to goto.
Anyways you will then see Badluck with Valkyrie and Badluck realize that
he has been messing up his life. Valkyrie will then talk about because of
the Girl bad luck can be reborn. Badluck will wonder if it is really true
and Valkyrie asks him if he wants to go. Badluck will say yes. You will
then see the injured Badluck outside of his house. Jenna will then walk
out the door and see him...

   Now use your Soul Concentration. You will then be told to goto the
Archdain Ruins.

--------------
Archdain Ruins
--------------

   First off, If you made it through Rezard's Tower(which you did) this
is a breeze. Start by walking to the right. You just as you approach the
gate it will open for you. Head to the right and in the first room 
climb the stair that lead to a platfrom at the top. On this platform you
can find a chest containing a Wild Bird Talon. You will also notice that
whenever you open a chest you will get attacked by a monster. Anyways head
to the right. Open the chest and you will get a Reduce Power. After you 
have that head to the right and you can find a chest that has the skill;
Stun Magic. When you have that go back to the room that had the Reduce 
Power and take the route down. Jump to the platform and you will find a
chest that contains a Night Shade. Now jump up to the chain and use that
to get to the platfrom on the left, from which you can jump to the right.
Enter the door and in this room you can grab a Eye of Heaven and in that
chest you can find a good skill, Resist Magic. Once you have that take the
door to the right. If you climb to the top you can find a room that has
a Save Point. Save and then take the Bottom door on the right. You will
now be in a room that has a bunch of moving platforms. In this room, jump
on the platforms and when you reach the top you should see a chest(it 
contains a Stun Check). Now take the door that is near the Stun Check. Head
throught the door that leads up and you will be in a room where you can 
pick up some Plant Seed, and Estock, and the skill Darkness Arrow. Once
you have those leave the room and head to the right. Fall down and take the
route that leads to the left. Now climb up the stairs and you can find a
Resist Damage, Lapis and an Ether Scpeter. Head back to the room that had
the Platfroms. Now Fall Back down and take the door near the bottom right. 
Go up twice. Now head to the right and a door will shut on you. You can 
find 3 chests in here. They contain a Zebori, a Reduce Power, and a 
Crystal. Kill all the enemies and you will then get a 10000 Experience 
Bonus, and the door will open. Now if you can do the Crystal Jump(using
Crystal Dust to make a platform in mid-air) then just jump up and you will
be at a Save Point. Now work your way to the top of that room and you
will be able to find a Combo Jewel and a Demon Slayer(watch out, the
chests will cause you to become dizzy for a while(i.e. Controls are now
Backwards). Anyways once you have those make sure that you have the 
a Stun Check for all of your fighters or other wise you will lose this
battle. Now head to the left. 

   When you enter you will see a 3 Soldiers and a woman chained up inside
a gem. Valkyie will ask them if they are Soldiers from Hell and then says
that she won't allow them to take this Womans Soul. The Reaper Lords will
and Valkyrie will talk a little bit and then it is time to fight.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:3x Reaper Lords

HP:16000
   
Recommended Level:22

Attacks:Chaos Sword

EXP:60000

Strategy:You will lose this battle if you do not have a Stun Check for all
         fighters. The Reaper Lord will almost always(95%) manage to stun
         you characters. And that is the hardest part of this battle. They
         will still do a lot of damage, but so long as the don't stun you
         it is okay. Now this battle is harder than in Normal since you
         can't fall back on a Celestial Astral/Meteo Swarm. But, You should
         mange to survive quite easily.

   After the battle you will find 3 Artifacts. If your Estimated Worth
is 100 or above I say take them all. They are all very good. One is the
Star Guard(keep). The next is the Seitsue:"Advantia"(Leave, you will get
a better staff soon. And then the Seii:"Britannia Garb"(Keep). When
you have done all of that you will get a message saying that you go a
80000 Bonus Experience. If you look behind the frozen woman you can then
find a Mighty Check. After that head to the left and you will be able
to find a Beast Slayer. After that head all the way back to where you found
the first Reduce Power. Now this time head to the left and head up. Now
grab all the treasures in that room and then leave for the exit. 

   Once you are on the World Map, use your Soul Concentration again. It
will now take you back to the Archdain Ruins.

----
Gray
----

   When you enter you will Selia walking along the enterence. She will be
thinking about Kashel and about how he told her she can't just drift like
the wind. She will continue to walk and then think she should have Sold 
out like Aluze did. Selia will then hear thoughts By Amy and Kashel. And
eventually she will think the only reason she is like this is her revenge
to Grey. You will now see Selia camping by a fire and she will be asked by
voices if she ever plans to return and that she can't drift. Selia will 
then wonder about Kashel, Baltos, Raulph, and Amy, and will then cry. Now
you will see Selia standing before the gates of the Archdain Ruins. She is
wonder why she is going to do this. She wonders if it is because she is
a woman and then thinks she has no friends left. She then starts walking
saying that she knows everyone will give her luck. Selia will enter the
room where you faught the Reaper Lords and call out for Gray. Selia then
wonders why he won't answer. Gray then notes it is Selia. Selia then says
that she came her to defeat him for Kashel, Amy and everyone who has died.
Selia continues by saying that this day Lemia died. Selia then holds her
sword at Grey's throat and asks him what he has to say. There will be a 
long pause and Selia will drop her sword. She will wonder what she was 
saying. She will fall on Grey and ask him to say that he didn't kill 
Lemina. Selia then continues by telling him to say that she did it. As
she falls down she says that it was her fault. Grey will say that he is
sorry. Then all of a sudden the Suit of Armor will fall and there will be
nothing there. Selia will then ask where Grey is.

   You will now see Valkyrie with Grey. Valkyrie will say that even though
he doesn't have a body, she can still summon his soul. Grey says that he
doesn't want to do anything. Valkyrie will then say that she needs Souls
to help them. Grey will be very hesitent, and Valkyrie will realize the
he is a Sword of God. Anyways you will now have Gray in your party. Once
you are back on the World Map, use your Soul Concentration. You will be
told to head to the Castle of Flames.

----------------
Castle of Flames
----------------

   Start walking to the right. You will immdiatly notice that there will
be a "fire rain" happening. So what you have to do is run to the right
and try not to get hit(and grab the Eye of Heaven). There are two 
techniques that I have found most effective for getting through the Fire
Rain. The first is to slide. And the second is to swing your sword. And
Actually, a combonation of the two is best. Anyways when you get to the
next screen walk all the way to the right until you can fall down a hole.
After you fall down, head to the right. There will be a little orb there.
Search it and the pick the to answer. The orb will light up and you will
get some experience for it. After you have that head to the right. When 
you get near the stairs some very fast moving monsters will come up, so 
be prepared. Walk all the way to the right and you can find a chest that
contains a Soul Slayer. When you have it, climb the stairs and head to the 
right. You can find a Shadow Servant in the chest. After you have it you 
will need to jump up where all that fire rain is. There is no easy way to 
get across this, so just take the damage. After you have done that walk to 
the left and a passage that wasn't there before will have opened. So walk 
inside and now head to the right. This next section I must admit that there
is probably a better way to do this, but hey, this works. First climb down 
the stairs and head to the left. You can find an Estock. Now go back up and
jump to the left. Grab the chest and then the only way that I figured to 
get these chests is to fall down, but attach a crystal on the next platform. 
I then proceeded to slash the crystal and a solid crystal would fall down 
that I could stand on(without taking damage). I then repeated this for all 
of the treasures and I then went into the door near the far right. In this
room, you first objective is to get all the way to the left and grab the
Lotus Gem. You can do this by falling down that long shaft, but try and
attach a crystal so next time you won't have to fall. After you have done
that just land on the Crystal and make your way up. Then you can grab the
Lotus Gem. Then what you have to do is get to the middle of the room. You
probably won't be able to make the jump. What I find is easiest is to 
attach a crsytal so you can make it. Once you make it, you will get 40000
Experience for doing it. Now walk to the left and take the ladder down. 
In the next room just fall down, you shouldn't get hit by any of the flames
that come out of the wall. When you reach the bottom, take the stairs that 
lead down again. Now in the next section, you job is to get to the upper 
left. You can do this by using a series of crystal. After you get up to 
that room, do the samething that you did with the Orb before(and you will 
get some exp). Now just jump near the middle of the room and you can find 
a door that will lead up. Now, head to the right and save. And also make 
sure that your Mage has Icicle Edge as the spell. After you have that head 
to the left and then up that little door. Now you will be in a room with a\
pot to the left and a sort of wall to the right. What you have to do is 
throw the pot underneath the wall and then follow it. When you are 
underneath the wall you will step on a switch that will activate a Fire 
Rain. Now what you have to do is hold the pot over your head. Now try and 
get 10 of the Fire Rain to hit it. When you do you will get some EXP and 
the pot will break. You will then automatically walk over to the right, 
where a monster is waiting. Valkyrie will say that this must be the Monster
that set this castle on fire. The Fire Element will say he cares nothing
about human souls, just they hate Odin. Valkyrie will get mad at this
and eventually you will enter a battle.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Fire Element

HP:36000
   
Recommended Level:24

Attacks:

Weakness:Ice

EXP:31500

Strategy:Well...I found this battle to be easy. Just use an Icicle Edge and
         then make sure that you max out your gauge so you can use your
         Clinchers. Then when you use Icicle Edge again, the battle should
         for the most part be over, after of course your fighters use their
         Clinchers. Delta Stike is great here.

   After the battle you can grab three artifacts. Make sure to keep the
Infernous. After you have all of those you will get 120000 Experience. 
Now head back out to the World Map, and you will find that you are done
for this chapter. Now if you want the "Good" Ending. You will want to 
send up Rucio now. When you do this scene will take place...

-------------
Minor Spoiler
-------------

   *Don't read this section unless until you either do it, or otherwise
it will provide a Minor Spoiler to the game. I'm just warning you.


-------------------------------START--------------------------------------



   You will see Valkyrie and Rucio sitting on top of a Mountain. Valkyrie
will say that Rucio's Soul seems very uneasiness and wonders what is going
on. Rucio will stay silent. Valkyrie will say that he didn't answer her,
and then says that no matter what she will never forget him. Rucio will 
then look up and Valkyrie asks him what is wrong. Rucio wonders if he can
return to that Village once more. Valkyrie will say why not.

   You now see Valkyrie and Rucio walking through a village. Rucio will
say that this Village makes him feel alive. Rucio will keep walking till
he reaches a clearing when he tells Valkyrie this is where they met. They
will then keep walking until they reach the last house. Valkyrie will ask if
this is the one. Rucio says if he remebers right that is the girls house.
He continues by saying that this must be Platina's house. Rucio will talk
about how he couldn't say anything to help Platina her problems. Rucio
will then tell Valkyrie about how he and Platina tried to run away. He then
continues by talking about how he was weak and didn't know what he was 
doing. 

   Valkyrie and Rucio will be walking through a forest. Rucio will say that
they both ran into the Darkness. Rucio will then grab Valkyrie's hand and
drags her along. He will then say they eventually reached this spot. Rucio
and Valkyrie will be standing in a very beautiful valley. Rucio then tells
her to fell that breeze. You will then see Valkyrie remove her helmet and
let the air blow through her hair. Rucio will then walkover to Valkyrie
and says she reminds him of someone. Valkyrie asks if it is the girl. Rucio
will say this is where Platina died, because he couldn't do anything. 
Valkyrie will then asks Rucio if she still reminds him of the girl. Rucio
will say that she is the image of Platina, but he doesn't feel any Love
towards Valkyrie. Valkyrie will then kiss Rucio and you will see a close-up
of the shocked Rucio. 

   After that you will see Valkyrie thinking that she must have really 
looked like the girl. Valkyrie will then drop her head and say that Gods
and Humans can not love each other. Valkyrie will then give a but and then
remove her helmet. Then she says that she is glad that she revived him. 
And the scene will then fade...



-----------------------------------END-------------------------------------

   After you have done that, you can do the following optional events.

------
Extras
------

   These are optional events you can do. You don't have to do them, but
they will generally add more to the story/make you stronger/get you a
better ending.

------------
Infinity Rod
------------

   If you have Meltina in your party head to Flansburg. If you go to her 
room a scene will take place. Meltina will come out and note that 
everything has been turned to ice. Except for this as she finds the 
Infinity Rod. The Infinity Rod is a good weapon if you don't have the 
Seitsue:"Unicorn Horn". Otherwise this weapon is out classed as it only 
increases your MP by 880(vs.1200) and it has a 10% chance of breaking.

----------------
Handmade Bandana
----------------

   If you have Badluck in your party and you head back to Camille Village 
and then go to where you got the Naken:"Vain Slay" you can get another 
item. When you do this Badluck will come out and ask Valkyrie if he can
be alone for a little while. Valkyrie will say nothing. Badluck will then
say that he is waiting for someone. Valkyrie will then leave and you will
hear Badluck shout for them to come out. A Woman will then come on the
screen. Eventually there will be a scene where Badluck attempts to kill the
Girl, but can't bring himself to do it. You will now see Badluck with 
Valkyrie. Badluck will explain that he's not such a bad guy and says he has
this for you. You will then get the Handmade Bandana. This reduces Holy
Damage by 50%.

   Once you have done these, just waste out the rest of the Periods. 

----------------
Sacred Phase 5-6
----------------

   Frei will greet you and then gets right to telling you how the battle
is going. Here are my results.


Before:

   Earth God Race:26
   Van God Race:30
   Other:24

After:
 
   Earth God Race:29(+3)
   Van God Race:27(-3)
   Other:24(+0)

   After this Frei will ask if you want to see how your characters are
doing. After that Frei will give you 16140 Materlize Points. Frei then
told me Odin has decided to give you some Items. Here is what I got.

   Ether Scepter
   Guard Reinforce
   Poison Blow
   Seitsue:"Advantia"
   Stone Touch
   Star Guard
   Shining Rupture

   Now Frei will say that this is what they need.

   Hero Possibilty:100
   A Brave Hero
   A Mage
   Hit
   Monster Intelligence

   Frei will then tell you to keep up the good work and you will soon find
yourself on the Chapter 6 World Map. Also I generally will send Nanami up,
since she was pretty useless 2 chapters ago.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After you are finshed messing arround with your Characters, at the
the start of this Chapter you can buy one of the most important Items. You,
will however need to sell alot of stuff to get this. Once you get 100000MP
go and buy the Orihalcon. After you have it, change it into the "High-Level
Transformation Gem". Once you have it start making some better weapons. 
Here is what I suggest:

   Writings of the Immortals----------------->Icicle Sword
   Broken Armor------------------------------>Glare Sword
   Dark(Skill)------------------------------->Reverie
   Unicorn Horn------------------------------>Seitsue:"Unicorn Horn"
   Broken Spear------------------------------>Living Spear:"Crimson Edge"

   Anyways When you are done with that, use your Soul Concentration. You
will be told to go to Firan.


-----
Shiho
-----

   The scene will open up with a girl being escorted by Two Samurai near
a crowd of people. The Girl(Shiho) will be crying, saying that she wasn't
strong enough to help. The Wife will wonder if she is really the Singing
Princess, why would she let anyone die. The Wife will then say it is 
Shiho's fault and that she is evil. The screen will the go black and a 
voice will be telling about how Shiho has the ability to give courage to
other, but she can never forget all of the things she has seen. You will
now see Shiho on a platfrom surround by Soldiers. Shiho will be asking
for good fortune. The scene changes and you will see 2 Red Samurai on a
desert, battlefield. One of the Samurai will say that Firan's Soldiers
are very strong. The Other will say that it is because of the Singing 
Princess, so they need to stop her singing. The Other Samurai will inquire
as to what that means. Now a Third Samurai will walk on the screen and tell
the other two that the Enemy Army is on the move. You will now see Shiho
again and a Soldier will tell her not to stop Singing. The Soldier will
the slap Shiho and tell her to start singing. The Soldier will then start
kicking her and the screen will go black.

   You will now see that all of the Black Soldiers are dead and a Red
Samurai will be standing next to Shiho. He asks if she is the one that has
the Magic Voice and asks why she stopped. Shiho will note that it is a Red
Samurai. Sohou will then wonder how she can see him. Shiho will explain
that when she was born she found that she had that ability. She then goes
on to say that the God's must have given it. Sohou then asks Shiho what
she dreams of. She then answer saying that she wants to die. Sohou is about
to slash her, but he then can't and drops his sword. He then removes his
mask. Sohou then picks up Shiho and takes her. The screen will fade and
you will then see Sohou and Shiho walk up to his leader. Sohou will say
that he captured the Singing Princess. The Leader will walk over and say
that she is a pretty girl. He then will slash at Shiho. Shiho asks
Sohou-sama to help her, but then dies. Sohou will ask his leader, why he
did that, she was his friend. The Leader then say that they can't have 
someone arround who has that kind of power. The Screen will then fade.

   Shiho is a bit more powerful than Meltina. Anyways once you are done
use your Soul Concentration and you will be take to the Abondened City of
Dyban.

-----------------------
Abandoned Town of Dyban
-----------------------

   Before I get started I want to warn you that the enemies in here are
fairly strong. So I recommend you use a party of Strong Characters. 
You will need to be strong enough to take the kind of damage the monsters
give here. Now on with walkthrough.

   When you enter Dyban you will see a Man right next to what appears to 
be a Guillotine. That Man(Balbrosa) will be shouting, saying that there
aren't many more that can feel his love(i.e. He wiped out the Village). 
Then wonders when more will come. Balbrosa will then start to scream in 
pain and shout out the names Darius, Gain, and Woluce. He will then wonder
what turned him into such a coward. He then wonders why he can't ever forget
about it. You will then see Valkyrie and she will walk to Balbrosa. 
Balbrosa will then notice Valkyrie and say that it is the Demon Kings 
Servant; Valkyrie. Balbrosa will then start talking about how Destiny 
doesn't matter and about how they rule the Country without it. Valkyrie
will wonder what he is talking about since he destroyed the Country.
Balbrosa will say it doesn't matter, since they make the decisions now.
A weird light will then surround Balbrosa. He will then transform into a
Suit of Armor that carries a Giant Sword(But has no Head). You will then 
get into a battle with "New" Balbrosa.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Balbrosa

HP:62700
   
Recommended Level:24

Attacks:Malice Gush
        Hell Fire
        Guard Reinforce
        Lightning Bolt

EXP:20000

Strategy:This battle is very difficult. Balbrosa does a ton of damage and
         can cause all sorts of Status Ailments. That is why you need to
         take him out in one shot. Which you can do if you have a strong
         party. Just attack on your first turn and then use the Clinchers. 
         If you do that(and they all have strong weapons) Balbrosa will
         be taken out in one shot. Otherwise you may have difficulty 
         winning if you fight a long battle. 

   After the battle Balbrosa will be saying that even in spite of the pain
he is not going anywhere. He then says that he won't die. Now it is time
for round two. Just review the strategy I have and you should be find for
the second time. After the second battle you will see Balbrosa dissappear
in a puff of smoke. Walk to the left and Balbrosa will some how be back.
Balbrosa will then talk about how he will stop you and about how he won't
die. Valkyrie will then say that she understands, This is only part of 
Balbrosa. And in order to kill him they will need to kill the other parts
as well. So now your task is to kill the other parts of Balbrosa.

   Start by walking to the left and take the path that leads down. Then
start heading to the right and eventually you will see some monsters. 
Valkyrie will wonder how the Undead got here. Anyways start heading to the
right. Also you may get lucky and get a Full Plate, which will really help.
Anyways walk to the right until you get to another screen. You should now
be in a room that has some stairs that go down and then there is a way to
the right. Take the way to the right for two screens. Kill that Evil Eye and
then head back and take the stairs that lead down. Now walk to the right
and you will reach a room that has some stairs leading down, take them. 
Now walk to the left for two screens and you will reach a room that has
a pentagram on the floor and some crystals around it. Valkyrie will wonder
if this could be a Time Machine. The screen will go black and you will then
hear some laughing. A voice will tell you this is Amusing. 
Valkyrie will asks what a is so amusing about it. The Voice will say that 
it can change time. Valkyrie will say that she understands. You will now 
see Valkyrie and she will wonder what is going on with this thing. A Light
will then lift Valkyrie into the air and she will say this is bad. The
screen will the go black and message will come up on the screen tell you
(note that I shortened this quite considerably) that you are going to go
to a time before the Earth Gods. When you can see again, you will notice
that the crystals have broken. So start walking to the right. When you 
enter that room Valkyrie will look down the hall and note that this looks
like the inside of a castle. So walk to the right till you reach the 
stairs. Climb them and then start walking to the left until you can take
the stairs up. On the next screen you will see some dead soldiers bodies
lying on the ground. Anyways walk to the all the way to the left and when
you get out Valkyrie will notice that it is a City. Valkyrie will then feel
some people and quickly changes clothes. You will then hear a Womans Voice
talk about how these people will get No Mercy. A Man will say yes. You will
then see what looks like Valkyrie in Black walk by. With Rourry and Meltina
in tow. The Female Swordsman look-alike, will ask where Balbrosa is. The
Meltina look-alike will say that Aluze currently has him. The Rourry 
look-alike will say that they can't have three mages. The Mage will then 
talk about how this town will pay. The Female Swordsman will say that is 
right, but they have to get the king. The Valkyrie look-alike will tell 
the other two to go ahead. She will then wonder if that is Rennas. The 
Valkyrie Clone will then say that it can't be. The Real Valkyrie will then 
come out and wonders what Arlia would be doing here. Valkyrie then wonders 
if they could have used the Time Machine. You will now be free to explore 
the town.

   If you talk to the villagers they will all talk about how the King is
going to be sacrificed as an offering to Veriza. So, What you need to do
is to talk to all vistors. Also I just want to let you know that the first
house has two floors. If you are in a hurry you can easily miss that. Now 
head to the Time Machine. This time Valkyrie will note that it is broken 
and then wonder where they could have gone to. So now what you have to do 
is work your way to the top of the castle(this is the most boring part of 
all this.) Anyways when you reach the top head all the way to the left. 
Then go near the Bookshelf and press the O Button. It will ask you if you
flip the switch on the bookshelf. Choose the top answer;yes. The Bookshelf
will then move aside and reveal a passage, so walk inside it. When you
enter Valkyrie will ask if anyone is in here. She will continue by saying
that she isn't with the others. A Woman named Malbus will come out from
behind a statue and asks who you are. Valkyrie will then ask Malbus
what this strange room is for. Malbus will then introduce herself, and
say she is Balbrosa's Wife. She will then say that the King was taken
by three Mages. Malbus will then walk over to Valkyrie and pull out a 
crown. She will then want Valkyrie to take it. She then says that she
knows that you can stop it.

   The scene will then change to that of the Execution. You will see 
Rourry and Meltina in front and Rofar and Aluze next to the Guillotine. The
Fake Valkyrie(Arlia) will then come out and says that they should watch
what will happen to their King. The Guillotine will then drop... A message
will then come up about how ever since then they he wished to be King 
again. You will now see the Guillotine lit up by the Moonlight with 
Valkyrie standing next to the head of Balbrosa. Valkyrie will say that it 
is all over. Valkyrie will then pick up the head of Balbrosa and think
about him. Valkyrie will then wonder how see can put this together. Valkryie
then gets an idea. The screen will go black and you will then see Valkyrie
trying to figure out a way to get back. After that you will see Valkyrie
walk up to Balbrosa. She then tells him that the Queen has something to
give him. Balbrosa will be supprised at this. Valkyrie will then pull out
the crown and say this is it. Balbrosa will then say that you must have
gotten it from Malbus. Valkyrie will say that is right. Balbrosa will then
tranform back into his original shape. Valkyrie will then jump up and hand
him the crown. Balbrosa will grab it. Balbrosa will then go into a long
monologue about how he has dreamed about this for an Eternity(I shortened
this part up a lot, but that is the general just). He will then thank
you, The War Goddess Valkyrie, and then disappear. Valkyrie will then look
at the Guillotine and start to think about how Balbrosa thought it was her,
but wasn't and then will remeber that period. She will then say that you
Mage Spirits should come out. You will then see three Mages warp in. Dairus
will then say that Valkyrie is annoying. Woluce will then say this is the
second time you've stopped them. Darius then goes on saying about how they
had that Kings Soul. Gain will then say that you then freeded him. Woluce
will then say he has had enough of this. The go on and on like that and
eventually Valkyrie will say that she will meet them in the Castle.

   Now walk back to the castle. Now walk until you can take the stairs that
lead up. Now a little to your left will be a Save Point, Save. Then 
continue walking to the left. Enter the first door that leads down and you
can find an Eye of Heaven. Leave that room and keep heading until you can
take another door that leads down. Inside that room you can find a 
Dark Savior. Once you have that head back to the right and Save again. 
Now climb the stairs that lead to the right. In this room enter the first
door you see to find a Lancer. Now head to the right and climb that stairs.
Enter the first door and you can find the skill;Triple Distress. Now head
back out and keep going to the left. Take the next route that leads down
and you can find "The Neck of the Faceless Doll". Now head back to the hall
and keep going to the left. When you reach the Stairs take the left route
before you take the right route. Now head down the first door you see and
you can grab some Bolt Sake. Now head back out and keep going to the left.
Take the next door down and you can find an Evoke Feather(like you don't
already have 6000 of those already). Leave that room and keep heading to
the left. Take the stairs down and to the right and then enter the room
at the end of the hall. You can find a Estock and a Reflect Sorcery in 
here. Now head back all the way to those stairs and this time take it to
the right. Just walk right for one screen(there is nothing in the bottom
room) and take the stairs to the left. Walk to the left for one screen
and then take the door that leads down. In this room you can find an Ether
Scepter and a Nightshade. Head back out and continue to the left. Now
continue walking left as far as you can and you will find three chests.
One Contains the spell;Cross Airrade, the other has Concentration and the
last has a Naken:"Moon Phalax". Once you have those head back to the right.
Now head all the way to the Save Point. What your job is now is to use
crystals to be able to make it up to that Stain Glass Window to the top
left of the Save Point. When you can successfully break it you will recieve
a 35000 Experience Bonus. Now Jump up and walk through the hole that you
just created. Now start walking to the left until you can go up.

   When you enter this room, you will see the Three Mages sitting on top
of some pillars. Dairus will then welcome you. You then talk a little and
eventually one of them says that they will take your Soul. Valkyrie will
then say that is what she does. You will then get into a battle.

-----
Jewel
-----

   The scene will open and you will see two knights in a room. You will
then see Jewel begging for somthing not to be kept a secret. The Other 
Knight(Faran)will say that this is somthing others can't know about. Faran 
then goes on saying that it would be troublesome for people to know that 
there is a female Knight. Jewel then eventually gives in. Faran then says
that he had to change your name, so as not to make anyone supscious. 
Jewel will then say that is okay. The scene will now change to the inside
of a castle. Faran will be telling Jewel that her form is looking better.
Jewel will thank him for the complement. Faran will says that it is almost
like a man's...Jewel will ask him what he just said. Faran will then think
for a bit, and then apoligize. Jewel will then start thinking. Faran will
ask what is wrong. Jewel wonders where she is going to sleep for the night.
Jewel and Faran will then share a laugh. You will now be back in the room.
Jewel will be telling Faran that she will absolutly get Magnus. Faran will
tell her that she will have to get better. Jewel then starts shaking her
fist, saying that she will get her hands on him. The screen will flash
again and you will now see Jewel trying to thank Faran for all he has done.
Faran won't say anything and Jewel goes on about how he helped her. Jewel
will then say she is just a weak girl. Faran will tell her she is wrong.
Again the screen will flash and you will see Faran telling Jewel that the
Magnus and his Soldiers are coming, and that this is her chance. Jewel
asks if it is the same Magnus. Faran will say that it is. 

   You will now be in a different room in the castle and you will see Jewel
and Faran facing off against Magnus. Just before Jewel and Faran strike
Magnus puts up a Barrier. Faran will be supprised he can do that. Jewel
will say that there is no way they can break the barrier. A Magician will
then warp in and slowly lands on the floor. It then sends out a blast of
energy that drops everyone except Jewel. Magnus will ask why that spell
didn't take out that one. Jewel will then ask Magnus what he is doing here.
Magnus will note that it is a Subordinate of Faran. Magnus will the say
that he understands. He then says that he wasn't expecting that there would
be any Female Knights. Magnus then says that Jewel must be his lover or
somthing close to it. The Magician(J.D.Wallace) will say that she does have
a pretty face but, only a Man is useful. Jewel will then get mad and call
J.D. a monster. J.D. will say that it is probably closer to a cupid than
a monster. Jewel then says that she will kill J.D. At this point Valkyrie
warps in. Jewel will be supprised by it. Magnus will then say that it is
the War Goddess Valkyrie. Valkyrie will say that she sure isn't cupid.
J.D. will then say that it has been a long time. Valkyrie will then level
her sword at J.D. and say that she will destroy all the Undead. You will
then enter a battle.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:J.D.Wallace

HP:10000

Recommended Level:26

Attacks:Poison Blow

EXP:0

Strategy:This battle doesn't need any strategy. If it takes you more than
         one round you are probably to weak for this point in the game. 
         Anyways if you need to just use your Clinchers and it will be over
         quick enough.

   After the battle Valkyrie will tell J.D. to leave. J.D. will then say 
that, that is sure supprising. Valkyrie will look over and you will see
Faran stabing Jewel. Jewel will then fall to the ground. You will now see
J.D. look over at Magnus and say that he is useless. After that J.D. will
tell Valkyrie that she will see her later. J.D. then warps out. Valkyrie
then angry, also leaves. You will now see Faran come back to his senses and
drops his sword. He then asks himself if he could have done this. Jewel
will then lift her arm and Faran will grab it and ask what is wrong with
Latisha. Jewel then says that starts saying that she...Faran will tell
her not to die. Jewel then spit out that she wants him to keep the secret.
Jewel will then die, and Faran will start to cry. Faran will then shout
Latisha's name as he charges at Magnus...

   Once you reach the World Map, use your Soul Concentration. You will be
told to goto the Forgotten Caves.

---------------
Forgotten Caves
---------------

   The Enemies in this cave are fairly easy to beat. So just go in and
kill them all. You will probably only gain one level, but that is one 
level. Once you are done, use your Soul Concentration. You will be told to
go to the Water Temple.

----------------
The Water Temple
----------------

   First head to the right and down underneath the water. Keep walking
to the right and eventually you will come out of the Water. On the next
screen you will see two Dragon Heads firing those Freeze Lasers. What you
have to do is jump on those little platforms and they will cause the Dragon
Heads to move, so you can jump on them and out of the water. You also get
3000 Experience for doing this. Head to the right and you can find an
Eye of Heaven and then take the path down. Now, before you touch anything,
head all the way to the right and you will see Tablet(just before the room 
with the ball). Now pull that Tablet at the bottom away from the door. Now 
head all the way back and you will see some sort of machine with two bars. 
Hang on the left one until it goes down twice. You will get 5000 Experience
for it. Now head to the next room and pull the two bars by the skull thing.
You will then see a FMV of the Water Temple being flooded. After it has 
flooded head to the right(you also get some experience). Swim up and at the
second  door you can find a Ignite Javalin. Head all the way back and push 
those Skull bars in. This will lower the water in the temple. Now go back 
and hold on to the left bar once more. Head to the right and push the bars 
in and flood the palace again. This time swim up to the top door. In this
room you can find the skill Dark. It is an okay skill...but Reverie is the
best. So make the change and you will soon understand why Reverie is the
best. After you have done that, head to the right and you will find another
one of those Raise/Lower things. Ignore it for now and head to the left.
Fall all the way to the bottom and hit that little orb thing twice(you
will get 3000 Experience for doing it). Now make a loop back and head to
that Raise/Lower things near the top. Push both sides in and then head
to the right. Enter the door and you can find an Angel Cure. Now go all
the way back and hit that Orb twice (it will lower the platform to
the other door). Once you have done make a loop back and enter the new
door that you can enter and head to the left. Jump over the water and
grab the Lapis. Then head go through that little underpass and you can
grab a Primsmic Missle. Now if you head to the left you will notice that
the door is close. So what you have do is first make a crystal shard(just
slash a crystal. Now remeber that switch in the middle of the Underpass?
Well...Just grab the crystal and then float it up to the switch and the
door will open. Head to the left and you will see a room that is not unlike
the Cliff Caves. If you haven't done the Cliff Caves what you have to do
is make the Freeze Laser reflect off of the Crystal and hit the orb. When
you hit the orb, the gate will swing open(and you will get 40000 Experience
for doing it). Now head up through the gate and to the left. Walk under the
water to the right and you can find a Footman Ax and a Naken:"Ruin's Fate".
After you have those, in order to get near the door you will have to use
what you sort of did in Saxxs Den. Take a Crystal Shard all the way to the
left. Let go of it and then jump on top of it. Once it rises to the top,
just get off and head to the left. Now you have to do the same crystal
float thing that you did in previous rooms(except, this time you have
to do it twice). After you have done it, head through the door that opened.
Now start jumping up as fast as you can. The walls will start to close in
on you but, it is really easy to make it. Now grab that Chest(has a charge
in it) and then head to the right. In this room you can find the Lotus
Gem in the right hand corner. Once you have it, head through the door.
Walk up to the right and you will to another one of those 'freeze the orb'
things. There is no easy way to do this, it just take time. Alot of it.
Once you have done it the door to the right will open and you will get
60000 Experience. Walk to the right and Save your game. Now enter the
door.

   Valkyrie will automatically walk over to the right, where a Flying
Ghost type thing is. The Raise will talk about how counting today, he will
not have seen anyone for 55,000 Days. Valkyrie will say that this undeads
time has run out. There is than a little short conversation about how 
Valkyrie will protect people and the Raise will say that Odin is their
target. Anyways after that you will enter a battle.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Raise

HP:100000

Recommended Level:27

Attacks:Gravity Breath

EXP:70000

Strategy:I didn't have too much trouble with this battle. Just make sure
         that you have Cross Airrade for your spell (so you can use a 
         Celestial Astral). Then if you have all your characers use their
         Clinchers, you will have killed it in one. Otherwise, you will
         probably be killed by his Gravity Breath.

   After the battle you will be able to pick up three artifacts. After
you have grabed them you will get 300000 Experience for doing all of this.
Now head all the way out and you are done for the Chapter. Just waste
out the Periods and Frei will come for you.

----------------
Sacred Phase 6-7
----------------

   Frei will greet you and then gets right to telling you how the battle
is going. Here are my results.

Before:

   Earth God Race:29
   Van God Race:27
   Other:24

After:
 
   Earth God Race:33(+4)
   Van God Race:25(-2)
   Other:24(-2)

   After this Frei will ask if you want to see how your characters are
doing. After that Frei will give you 18720 Materlize Points. Frei then
told me Odin has decided to give you some Items. Here is what I got.

   Ether Scepter
   Dark Savior
   Prismic Missle
   Prevent Sorcery
   Book on Gold Refining
   Soul Summon Staff

   Now Frei will say that this is what they need.

   Hero Possibility:110
   A Mage That Can Cast Fire Spells
   Undead Intelligence
   A High Level Mage
   Avoid 
   Resist Magic

   Frei will then tell you to keep up the Good Work. And you will now be
on the Chapter 7 World Map. I generally will send up Rolenta, after I give
her Burn Storm, Fire Lance, Ignite Javalin, etc. 

   However, if your Seal Rating is low enough, a scene will take place.
If you have this scene take place, you are generally going to be able to
get Ending A. I'm going to put up another little spoiler notice(Just to be
safe...)

-------------------------------START--------------------------------------


   You will see Rucio standing where Valkyrie was walking in the beginning
of the game. Rucio will be trying to talk himself into the fact that 
Valkyrie is not Platina. However, He is still doubting this. You will now
see Philia and another Young Man(Just warning but this guy is one my 
favorite characters in the game)come onto the screen. Philia will ask Rucio
what he is doing here. Rucio will reply nothing, and that it wouldn't make
a difference. Philia will think she understands and says that he must be
worried about somthing. She then tells him to cheer up. Rucio will look up
and say that if a God wants him to he better do as ordered. Rucio will
then say he was never really confused. Philia asks what that means. Rucio
will take just sort of stall. The screen will go black and you will see
Rucio thinking about how he needs to rise above this doubt. Rucio will
then think about his doubts like Death, Souls, Bravery, Gods  and...
The screen will come back and Philia will finsh his thought by saying
Valkyrie. Then Loki(The Young Man) will wonder if she is the one with the
Beautiful Face, he then says that he doesn't understand this? Philia
will ask him what he is talking about, saying that Loki has never worked
with Big Sister Rennas(Again not like family more like Mentor) so he can't
understand. Loki will apoligize. Philia then says that it doesn't make m
much difference. You will be back to Rucio's mind as he resolves himself
to find out the truth. Like what that Woman(Valkyrie) Real Name is, and
about her exsistence. Rucio then thinks that when Humans die there Souls
are Purified and the revived, God are Eternal, and the Undead can last
forever too. Rucio then thinks that when Valkyrie changes from a Human
she is reborn as a God, and if she changes from a God...You will now be
back in the "Real World". Rucio then wonders about this Rebirth of the
Human Form. Philia will says that is correct but, If Big Sister Rennas was
to be Reborn she would lose her Memory. Rucio will be shocked at this and
asks Philia about this Memory loss. Philia will say that it is true, and
that Frei takes care of Sealing the Memories. Rucio is now confused about
all of this Sealed Memories and Humans. Philia says that in time all Humans
will lose there Memories. Philia will then say that you will forget 
everything. Philia will ask Rucio what he is thinking about. Rucio will
say it is nothing. Loki will now remain speechless(Hint:this little talk
figure into the game later). Rucio asks if there is anyway to avoid the
Memory loss. Philia talk about how it is impossible since Odin gave this
job to Frei. Loki will then ask a question, what if Frei isn't called?
Philia will now walk off the screen. 

   Rucio will now be with Loki. You will see Rucio now thinks that Valkyrie
is Platina without the Memories. Loki will then start to laugh. Rucio will
then ask what use this information is to him. Loki says that he might
have a possible idea. Rucio inquires about this. Loki wonders if they
might be able to get arround the Sealed Memories but it might be a little
difficult. He will then tell you that it involves talking to Valkyries.
Loki then asks Rucio what he thinks. The scene will change to that of
a Castle. Loki will talk about how Odin has a fixed time when he contacts
Valkyrie. Loki then goes on to explain that Odin uses a Water Mirror to 
contact her. Rucio asks if they are going to use the Water Mirror to talk to
Valkyrie. Loki says that he is right. Rucio then wonders if Loki will get
in trouble for doing this. Loki will reply by saying that he does what
he wants. Then says that you should think if you really want to do this,
because the puishment would be extreme. Rucio says nothing and just starts
walking to the right. A Gem will now flash and the camera will shift to
the right where Loki and Rucio are standing. Rucio will ask Loki if this
is it. Then asks how he works this thing. Loki will tell Rucio to close
his Eyes and think about the Woman. Rucio will do as he says. You will 
then hear Rucio asks if Valkyrie can hear him and indetifes himself as
Rucio. But there will be now answer. Rucio will ask again, and as before
there will be no answer. Rucio then says Valkyries name and this time an
image appears. Valkyrie will be supprised that it is Rucio, and then asks
him if he knows what he is doing. Rucio says that he does...and then his
Hand glows. Valkyrie wonders what that is. Rucio will tell you that he is
giving you this Earring, and he wants you to go to a place that is sad
for him. Valkyrie is wondering if this is what he used the Water Mirror for. 
Rucio will just repeat about how he wants you to take the Earring to 
someplace that was Sad for him. Valkyrie will eventually give in. She then
goes on to comment about how stupid this was. Valkyrie then tells you that
you are a fool and leaves.

   Rucio will now be crying. He wonders why Valkyrie was like that. Loki
will ask him if anything happened. Rucio will then says that he is alone
now. Loki will say that wasn't very smart. Loki will then hold out a Orb
and Transform into his True Form(and is it ever cool). Rucio will be 
shocked at this. Rucio will then question Loki about that form. Loki will
ask Rucio if he likes it. Loki then goes on to explain that it is because
he possess the Dragon Orb. Loki will explain that it allows him to steal
from Criminals, like Rucio. Rucio will wonder what he is talking about.
Loki will start laughing and then explain that he is going to seal him
in his Orb. Rucio will say that it won't happen and then goes on to say
that he won't die. A Fight then occurs, where Rucio appears to be holding
his own against Loki...and then screen goes blank and you will end up in
Chapter 7.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Start the Chapter by using your Soul Concentration. You will be told
to goto Frian.

-----
Sohou
-----

   The screen will be black and you will see Sohou in the middle of the
screen. You will listen as he remebers what someone tells him. The Voice
tells Sohou that everyday, living in violence will eventually corrupt 
him(Extreme Paraphrase). Sohou will then drop his sword and then say that
they are wrong. The screen will come back up and you will see Sohou and
another Samurai. The Samurai will ask Sohou what is wrong. Sohou will say
that nothing is bothering him. There will be a long pause and eventually
the Samurai will note that he is losing his concentration. He then says
that Sohou should sit the next battle out, they will be able to win without
him. Sohou will try and get into the battle, but the Samurai just tells
him to sit this one out. The screen will go black and you will then hear
Sohou wonder why he let happen to Shiho. 

   You will now see the Samurai all standing arround in a destroyed town. 
The Leader will be asking if they captured the center of the town. A 
Samurai will speak up and say that they have it all. The Leader will 
comment about how that is good and then all the Samurai start to walk away,
except Sohou. You will see Sohou walk to the right and find a man quivering
with a Katana. The Man will note that they are back. Sohou will the walk
forward and get ready for a battle. The Man will look behind him and say
that you should get away, quickly. Sohou will be very supprised at this.
You will then see the Man's family behind him. The Man will then say that
he will destroy Sohou. Sohou will say nothing. The screen will go black
and Sohou will be thinking about what he is doing. You will then see a 
still shot of when Sohou and Shiho met. Sohou will then talk about what
he was doing. After that you get to see the Leader kill Shiho. Sohou will
then be wonder what he is doing. After that you will just see a Slash. And
then Sohou start to fall down.

   Sohou will now be with Valkyrie. Valkyrie will be asking him why he
fights. Sohou will say that he doesn't really know. Valkyrie will ask
him about that. Sohou will explain that he didn't know what he was fighting
for. He then goes on to explain that since he let that Girl die, he doesn't
really know what it is about. Sohou then goes on to explain that he knows
one thing, that he has to protect people from the muderers, but he will
do it as a Faceless Person.

   You will now see The Leader and some Samurai's arround Sohou's body.
The Leader will say that it is strange. The Leader will then look up and
think about Sohou. After that you hear Valkyrie say that Once again, you
live...

   Anyways I never really got to like Sohou, he is probably equal to 
Jewel, but Valkyrie/Rucio/Amy are far better(and this is assuming that you
equip him with a Sword, otherwise he would be pathetic now). Now use your
Soul Concentration again. You will be told to goto the Ancient Tombstone 
of Amenity.

----------------------------
Ancient Tombstone of Amenity
----------------------------

   *I hated this place. It is very frustrating because it almost one giant
maze and every room looks alike(and trying to write this at the same time
doesn't help). So I recommend that you use an Eye of Heaven in this 
dungeon. It just makes it easier to know where you haven't been.

   If you jump on the to the Ledge that covers the enterence, you can
find a Eye of Heaven. Once you have that, head to the right. If you jump
on the Ledge that covers the door that you just entered, you can find one
of the Lotus Gems. After you have that continue to the right. Now jump
up to the top left, but watch out for the Flames that shoot out of the 
wall. In that room you can find a Base Metal. Now fall down and head to
the Right. Keep going until you reach a little switchback and then start
to head to the left(watch out for those spikes as you jump). In the next
room you can find a chest that is hidden behind those box. After you have
it, you need to jump to the top left. Watch out when you reach the box
on the right, a spike will come down on top of you(just duck and it won't
hit you). Anyways once you reach the room, kill the Durhan and head down.
Keep heading to the right until you reach a room that goes up and has two
doors to the right. Now what you have to do is jump on those spikes to
reach the top. When you get up there you will find a Mithril Plate(which is
some good Armor). Now take the top door that leads to the right. When you
enter you will see a Blue Jewel on a Pedastel. Walk over and grab the Gem.
When you do the door to the room will shut and you will get 60000 
Experience. Now what you have to do is just very quickly jump on the 
platform and then run to the left. This way you can make it out of the 
room. Now take the bottom path to the right. Run past those pots that shoot
up fire. By the last pot you can find a chest that contains a Stone Check.
When you have it head to the right. In the next room, fall down and head
to the left. Eventually you will reach a Save Point. Now jump up to the
top right door. As soon as you enter a Giant Statue will come at you.
What you have to do is Slash at its "Beard" and then its Chin. When you
do you will break off enough room for you to slide under(you also get
35000 Experience for this). After you have done that, walk over and grab
the Resist Magic. Now head back and take the bottom left door. As soon as
you enter slash at the bottom spike and let the top spike pass over your
head. This will allow you to jump over them and grab the Naken:"Ruins Fate",
that is in the corner. Now head back and take the bottom right path this
time. Now fall down and enter the second door. Head to the right and when
you reach the next room you can find a chest above the ledge. Grab this,
it is a Unicorn Horn. Now make another Seitsue:"Unicorn Horn". This is the
first time in the game I use a party of 2 Fighter/2 Mages(For now Meltina
and Shiho). This is a great party for now, since almost nothing survives
a 2x Celestial Astral/Meteo Swarms. Anyways keep heading to the right and
eventually you will reach a little switch back that has a chest. Grab that
and then head to the left. Jump up to the top left and then run across 
those spikes in the air. Now if you run to the right you can find a 
Cross Airrade. Grab that and then head to the left. Jump up and you can
find some Mithril Ore, then take the door that leads down. Now fall down
and take the door at the bottom. You will be back where you found the 
Unicorn Horn. Now run all the way and when you get to the room past the
Switchback, take the path that leads down. Now jump up to the top right
and enter the door. Fall down and take the top path that leads left. Grab
the chest and then return to the Save Point. This next part is a little
tricky. Head to the left and get on that platform. Now fall down to the
top right door. It will probably take you awhile to do this(and it only
gets worse after this). Anyways take the top right door and then grab
the Wassil Raiper. Now start heading to the left. Eventually you will reach
a Save Point. Save your game and then head to the right. Follow the path
and eventually you will reach a room that has a door in the top left. Take
that door and you will enter a room that has a Red Gem. Grab that like
you did the first to get 60000 Experience. Now to get out of this room take
a Crystal Shard and put it on the pedastel. You will then be able to get
out of the room. Now on your way back you will notice that the Spike thing
that was blocking your path has moved to the right. So take the door that
leads to the left. You will have another of those Face Statues that you
have to smash in order to slide under. When you do it you get a little b
bonus of 35000. Now keep heading to the left. Just follow the path arround.
Also when you walk down those stairs, you can find a Chest just above the
Ledge. Now just watch out for the Fire Pots and keep heading to the
right. Eventually you will reach a room that has path that leads to the
bottom left and a path that leads to the right. Before you take those, fall
down and you can find a chest in the bottom right corner. Now head
to the left(and make sure you have alot of time and patience). In the 
following rooms, you job will be to grab all of the chests and to make
sure not to hit those flying heads. If you do get hit by one(and you will).
You will be taken to a room that has three heads on the right wall and a
closed door on the left. What you have to do is smash the three heads and
the door will open(the first time you do it, you get Experience). Now just
follow the path and make sure that you grab all of the treasure(one is a
Raven Slayer and the other is the second Lotus Gem). The Raven Slayer will
be hidden behind a pillar in the room with the Fire Pots. The Lotus Gem is
just out in the Open. Anyway, when you reach the next room first fall down
and head into both of the left and right rooms to grab some chests. After
you have done that head to the top left door. Now just follow the path 
and eventually you will reach the Save Point(and you are almost done with
this terrible place). Before you goto the right, make sure that you have
two mages with Cross Airrade(Celestial Astral) or otherwise this battle 
will take 45 minutes. Now head to the right and go up to the giant statue.
It will ask you a question. Just choose the bottom answer. The Statue
will then open up and let you through. Walk to the right and grab the
chest. Then go to the middle and search that platform. It will ask you if
you want to place the gems. Say yes and when you do the Coffin will open
up and Astros will come out. 

   When Astros comes out he will talk about how his Kingdom was destroyed,
but now they will build a new one. Valkyrie will wonder who or what he is.
Astros will explain that he was the King of a special place where Souls of
the Dead could go...Amenity. And then wonders if Valkyrie would help. When
Valkyrie doesn't answer then Astros ask her again. Valkyrie will say that
she won't help and that she will defeat them. You then enter a battle with
Astros and 2x Undead Slaves.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Astros

HP:130000

Recommended Level:30

Attacks:Seraphic Broadside
        Reflect Sorcery
        Cure Plums

Weakness:Holy

EXP:144360

Strategy:This is a tough battle. The Undead Slave won't last very long, in
         fact I recommend that you only have one mage cast Cross Airrade
         and have the other Save there magic(because you are all going to
         need to attack to beat him). The reason why is when he loses more
         than half his DME he casts Cure Plums. But, if your are half-way
         strong at this point, each Celestial Astral should do abou 70000
         Damage.

   After the battle you can grab alot of Artifacts. Once you have taken
what you want, you will get 1000000 Experience for doing this(which is
too little in my opinion). Anyways work your way out and when you get out,
use your Soul Concentration. You will be told to goto the Forest of Ghosts.

----------------
Forest of Ghosts
----------------

   If by some chance you have a weapon that kills Fire in one hit(like the
Kourenken:"Infernous"), oh, this is easy. Otherwise these battles will be
fairly difficult. You will have to rely on your Seitsue:"Unicorn Horn" to 
survive against some of the enemies here. Also somthing I should have put
down is, that in the previous Sacred Phase, Frei gave you an item. This 
item is Gem of Fire Spells, and she wanted you to restore it's power. And
that is why you need to be in the Forest of Ghosts. Oh, and one last thing
before I start, make sure to have your Mage use Burn Storm (as a Magic
Spell). This way most of the enemies will die in one round.

   As soon as you enter The Forest of Ghosts, you can find an Eye of Heaven
on top of a branch. Grab it and then continue to the left. Keep walking to
the left and after about 2-3 screens you will see an Elf Girl standing in a 
bright light. Valkyrie will then walk up to the Elf. The Elf will note
that it is The War Goddess Valkyrie, and asks what she needs. The Elf 
will continue to say that she should enter the Village, and that the Forest
is a dangerous place now. She will then let Valkyrie pass and you will now
be in the Elf Village. Walk to the left and another scene will take place.
This Elf will ask Valkyrie what she is doing here. Valkyrie will explain
that Odin sent her to gain some information on a Broken Artifact. The Elf
will ask Valkyrie about this Broken Artifact. Valkyrie says that it is 
called the "Gem of Fire Spells", and that it needs to be restored. The Elf
will say that it is some sort of Magic Crystal. Valkyrie then wonders if 
the Elves can restore it. The Elf will say that they can, but right now 
they don't have the neccassary items. Valkyrie will ask what is the problem. 
The Elf explains that the "Gem of Fire Spells" is actually a Crystal made
by the Fire Dragon; Fabnil, and it contains his incredible power. And right
now they would have 0% Chance of being able to restore it. Valkyrie asks
where she can get the items. The Elf will tell Valkyrie that what is needed
for the ceramony are; The Golden Pedastal, The Silver String, The Drops of
Darkness, and The Feather of Fascination. Valkyrie asks where she can find
these(Quick Note:I did this in a different order, and I think my way is a
better one, anyways here is what the Elf says). The Elf will say that you
can find the Drop of Darkness in the South, The Silver String in the 
North-East, The Gold Pedastal near the Center. Valkyrie will ask what about
that last one. The Elf will just say the Cocatrice. Valkyrie wonders if it
is the same Monster that changes people into Stone. The Elf will say that
she is right, and that in order to get the Feather of Fascination you will
have to get a feather from the Cocatrice. Valkyrie will thank her for the
info and then the Elf will ask if she is leaving. Valkyrie will say that
she is and the Elf will tell you that you can find the Cocatrice near the
North-East. Now that you can move head to the right.

   Now keep heading to the right, until you can take a path that leads
up. Now head to the left for a little and at the end you can take another
path that leads up. Start walking to the left now. Eventually you will 
reach the end of the path, where you can find a Lucerne Hammer. Now, on 
that same screen take the path that leads up and head to the left. Watch
out on this screen though, the monster are particularly annoying. Anyways
once you get all the way to the left, you can talk to an Elf that will tell
you Basically you are near the Cocatrice. Take the path that leads down and
you will be near a Save Point. Save, And before you head to the right, head
to the left and jump on the branches. You will be able to find a Reduce
Power and a Golden Egg. The Golden Egg is a pretty cool item. It will raise
some stats a random amount. What I do is Save, and then keep using it on 
Valkyrie until It raises it a decent amount. Anyways, If you have already
done that, or just don't care head to the right. You will now be in what
appears to be a Swamp and just to your right you can see the Cocatrice. 
After a little pause, you will enter a battle with it.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Cocatrice

HP:50000

Recommended Level:27

Attacks:Physical

Weakness:Fire

EXP:50000

Strategy:Well, If you really want to you can use Fire Lance, but I still
         prefer to use Cross Airrade and then get a Celestial Astral. Also
         you can win this battle in one hit(If you have a weapon that kills
         fire). Anyways just get ready to use your Clinchers. I used an
         Order of Valkyrie, Amy, Jewel and then Celestial Astral, but you
         can really do anything you want. Anyways this is a really easy
         battle that at the most should take your three rounds(I was able 
         to kill it with one Celestial Astral).

   After the Battle, you will get a message saying you recieved the 
Feather of Fascination. Then it will tell you that you got a Experience
Bonus of 16000. Now head to the left and Save your game. Then take the
path up and this time start walking to the right and then head down. The
goto the right again until you reach a new area. On this screen, start
jumping on the branches and try and get to the top right. Hidden by the
branches is a chest that contain a Prevent Sorcery. Now, Fall all the way
down and take the path that leads up. If you head to the left you will be
able to find a chest that contains a Ignite Javalin. Once you have that
head to the right, and go past the elf. And on this screen you can find
a Wassil Rapier if you jump from Branch to Branch until you reach the 
top. Once you have that head back to that Elf to the left and take the
path that leads down. Now walk to the left and on this screen you can find
a Lapis(Top Right) and a Golden Egg(Top Left). Just make sure that you save
one for later. Now if you walk to the left of this screen you can find a 
Giant Spider sitting on it's web. When you get close enough to the Spider 
you will enter battle with it.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Venom Spider

HP:30000

Recommended Level:27

Attacks:Poison Fang
        Physical

Weakness:Holy

EXP:500

Strategy:If you can beat the Cocatrice, you can beat the Venom Spider. Just
         using a standard Cross Airrade I was able to take 3/4 or its DME
         away. Anyways just Attack and with a Cross Airrade you can win
         in one round. 

   After the battle, It will tell you that you recieved the Silver String.
And After that you will get 16000 Experience for doing this. Now, work your
way back to where the Wassil Rapier was. Once you get there keep heading to
the right and then take the route that leads down. Take the route on this
screen that leads down and then keep walking to the left until you reach
another Elf. Now walk past the Elf and take the route that leads down.
Start walking to the left, until you take another path that leads down.
Head to the right and go past the Elf. If you jump from Branch to Branch
on this screen you can find a Timer Ring, A Prevent Sorcery, a Reflect
Sorcery, and a Golden Egg. Now, Walk back to the left and near the Elf
there will be a path that leads down. Take it. One this screen if you look
to the right you will be able to find a chest that contains a Cross Airrade
hidden behind some rocks. After you have it, walk to the left. On this
screen you take two routes. One is walking along the log that leads back.
And the other is to walk underneath the log. Walk underneath it for now and
head to the left. One this screen you can find a Cure Plums, plus if you
look in the tree's, you can find a chest that contains the 
Seii:"Sylph Red". They are very strong for your Mage. After you have them
head back to the right and this time take the high road. Now take the high
road that leads back to the Cross Airrade place, and this time head up.
The start to walk all the way left. You will then see a Elf standing next
to a giant rock and there may or may not be water in there. If there isn't,
then Elf will explain that it only appears at certain times. So just keep
leaving and entering this room until there is water underneath the rock.
When there is, just walk to the water and you will recieve the Drops of
Darkness. You will also get 16000 Experience for doing it. Now head back
to the to the very center of the map(It the tall room with some branches
and an Elf in it, you already past though here before, right off the main
path). If you talk to the Elf it will explain that Apemen like to live 
high in the trees, and that if you know your own abilities, you can make 
it that high too. So what you have to do is starting to the right of the 
Elf, make a pile of Crystal (slash at the crystal, then pick it up to make
a pillar) and you should be able to reach the branch. Now just keep 
repeating this on each branch until you reach the Apeman. This will 
probably take a while, depending on how experienced you are. Anyways, once 
you reach the top you will enter battle with the Apeman. 

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Evil Gibon

HP:42000

Recommended Level:27

Attacks:Physical
        Killing Hammer

Weakness:Ice

EXP:50000

Strategy:One word, Icicle Sword! It is really cool to see your Characters
         do 42000 damage a hit. If you don't have an Icicle Sword, then
         just use Clinchers, but you should have an Icicle Sword (It is a
         really great weapon). 

   Once the battle is over you will get a message saying that you recieved
the Golden Pedastal(you will also get the Standard 16000 Experience Bonus).
Once you have those, fall down the trees and take the path that leads down.
The just keep walking all the way to the left and you will end up in the
Elf Village.

   When you talk to the Elf in the village it will ask you if you have all
the items. There will be a pause and the Elf will say that they will start
it right away. The screen will fade in and out and you will now see a
Treasure Chest to the right of Valkyrie. The Elf will tell you to take
it. But, before you can Valkyrie asks about the Elves, The Elf then say
that they are going to return(not important). Anyways, you can now grab
the chest and in contains the fixed "Gem of Fire Spells. Once you have that
you can leave the Forest, and return to the World Map. However, before you
use your Soul Concetration head back to the Forest of Ghosts. This time
head to where the Elf was. This time there will be a Maze. The order to
get through this is:

Down
Left
Down

   Now just walk to the left and you will see another Cockatrice. It should
be very easy to defeat. After you defeat it you will be able to grab two
artifacts(both of which you should keep). After that you will get 240000
Experience and you can leave. Now use your Soul Concentration and then head
to the Forgotten Caves.

---------------
Forgotten Caves
---------------

   The enemies this time are very easy. Almost too easy. Anyways just work
your way through(you may need a Dragon Slayer/Celestial Astral to kill the
Dragon Zombie). Anyways once you get out you are done with the "Mandatory"
Events. Now on to the Extras.

------
Extras
------

   These are optional events you can do. You don't have to do them, but
they will generally add more to the story/make you stronger/get you a
better ending.

----------------
The Witch Leslie
----------------

   Head back to the Archdain Ruins. Go all the way to the boss room(I just
ran away from all the enemies). As soon as you enter, Valkyrie will walk
over to the Crystal. She will talk to the Witch Leslie and say that she
has a request from Master Odin. Leslie's spirit will then float out of the
Crystal. Leslie then wonders if it is the Soul Defender, The War Goddess
Valkyrie. Valkyrie will say that she is, and that her Master needs her 
great power. Leslie will explain to Valkyrie that her Great Magic powers
have been sealed away in her body. Leslie then wonders why she still is on
this World, she then continues by wondering if Valkyrie doesn't become 
depressed by all the Sadness and Sufering. You then get in a battle with
Leslie. I won't bother writing a strategy down for this one. She only has
12000 HP and it is so simple to win. After you win you will be back on the
World Map. And you now have Leslie in your party. I take out whatever mage
I was using and stick her in. She is very strong. 

   You are now finshed with Chapter 7. Just waste out the rest of the
Periods.

----------------
Sacred Phase 7-8
----------------

   Frei will greet you and then gets right to telling you how the battle
is going. Here are my results.

Before:

   Earth God Race:33
   Van God Race:25
   Other:22

After:
 
   Earth God Race:36(+3)
   Van God Race:23(-2)
   Other:23(-1)

   After this Frei will ask if you want to see how your characters are
doing. After that Frei will give you 21870 Materlize Points. Frei then
told me Odin has decided to give you some Items. Here is what I got.

   Ether Scepter
   Ignite Javalin
   Shield Critical
   Mind Reinforce
   Sword of Angels

   Now Frei will say that this is what they need.

   Hero Possibility:120
   A Hero with a Extremely High Hero Possibility
   March
   Bravery
   Fight 
   Counter
   Leadership
   Formation

   Frei will then tell you to keep up the Good Work. I will generally send
up Sohou, because when you Max all of his Characteristics, he comes out
somewhere around 220. And he fits everything that Frei wants. After that
you will be on the Chapter 8 World Map. However, If you are getting Ending
A, another scene will take place. So Don't read this unless you want it
to be spoiled for you.


-------------------------------START--------------------------------------


   Frei will greet you as Normally. However, she will then tell you that
one of the Humans you sent up has gotten in a little trouble. And his name
is Rucio. She then goes on to tell you that he was seen with Loki trying
to get the Dragon Orb to the Human World. Frei then says that you would 
know what would happen if the Dragon Orb made it to the Human World. Frei
then gives you 21000 MP(I don't remeber the exact amount). The screen will
fade and you will be back to the fight between Loki and Rucio. Loki 
eventually defeats Rucio and sends him flying. After the battle you will
be in Odin's Throne Room. Odin will be supprised by the Dragon Orb. Frei
will say that she saw it. The screen will fade and you will be in the 
room where Loki and Rucio faught. Odin will ask Loki to wait, saying he 
needs to talk to him about something. Loki will then say that it is
probably about him using the Water Mirror. Odin will say that he guessed
what it was about. Loki will then walk away. Frei will then ask Odin why
he let Loki go. Odin will say that they need proof of what he is trying
to do. Frei then asks if he is trying to find out why he wanted Rucio to
use the Water Mirror and take it to the Human World. Odin says that is
correct. Frei then says that the Orb can make people Giants. Odin responds
to Frei by telling him that Loki probably wasn't in his real form. Anyways
the converstation then goes on about how Odin shouldn't have helped Loki,
and about how he is insane. They will both then wonder about Rucio and
the Dragon Orb...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you start in Chapter 8, use your Soul Concentration and it will
tell you to head to The Dragon Hall.

-----------
Dragon Hall
-----------

   This is going to be the first dungeon that has quite a few annoying
puzzles/riddles(Which are very difficult to figure out, if you don't know
Japanese). Also, quite a few of the enemies are annoying. I also recommend
that you buy a Valkyrie Feaver. Also, If you can afford it buy an Orihalcon.
The use the High-Level Transformation Gem to change it into a great weapon;
The Maken:"Gram". The Maken:"Gram" attack three times and kills Dark 
instantly. Now that this is out of the way I will get on with the 
Walkthrough.

   When you first enter start heading to the right for two screen. On the
third, there should be a picture on the wall. If you walk up to it you will
will find that it is Number 16 and that it is titled "The Tower". There 
will then be a little blurb talking about the Power of the Stars and after
this the game will give you the "Stone of the Full Moon". You will then 
recieve an Experience Bonus of 1600. Once you have the stone, walk back
to the left and enter the door that is open(not the one with the Sun on 
it). When you enter you will be in a room with a statue to the left and
some sort of crystal, high in the middle. Walk over the Statue and search
it. You will eventually be asked which Stone you want to use. Select the
"Stone of the Full Moon" and you will then be warped to a new area. First
head down, and the to the left. You will be in a room where you can pick
up an Eye of Heaven and a Wassil Rapier. After you have those start walking
to the right. Jump over that stone in the middle of the road so you can 
reach the door on the right. When you enter this room, Kill the Durhan
Lord and the head to the right and you can grab a Lapis. After you have
it head back to the left and push that Stone out of the way so you can
enter the door. If you walk a little to the left, you can find another
Lapis. Now start heading to the right. Jump over the stone that blocks
the door and head to the next screen. You will see 4 statues. If you talk
to the Statues this is what they say (Remeber this, it will be important
Later...). 

   Top Statue:You will note that it is facing to the left.
   Right Statue:You will note that it is facing the front.
   Bottom Statue:You will note that is facing to the back.
   Left Statue:You will note that it is facing to the right.

   Once you have all of that done, you can find a door to the right. Take
it and you will have to face a Paramount Chimera. Once you kill it, head
to the right and search the picture. You will find out this is Number 10
and titled the Wheel of Destiny. You will then gain the "Stone of Lunch".
After that you will get 1600 Experience. Take that and head back to the 
left. Now push that stone of of the way and enter the door. You can find
a Crystal to your right and a Guard Reinforce. You can also find a Save 
Point to the left. Save you game and then head back to the room that 
contains the Statue. This time when the Statue asks you what Stone you want
to use, choose the "Stone of Lunch"(This will be the top answer). You will
then be warped to where you started. Except, this time you can open that
door that has the Sun on it. Do that and enter it. If you look to the left
you can find a Ether Scepter. Grab it and then start heading to the right.
Now in this room, first head through the door with the Sun on it. You can
find a Bolt Sake . After you have the treasures go up to the Painting. You 
will find out that it is Number 13 and titled "Death". You will then get a 
message saying that you got the "Stone of the Black Spot". After you have 
it, leave this room. This time head all the way to the right. You will now
be in a room very similar to the one before, except, this time you can 
move the statues. So just move them to the way that they were in the other 
room. Once you have moved them you will notice that a door at the bottom 
right opens. You will also get 5000 Experince for doing it. So go through 
the door to the right. You will find another painting called "The Emporer"
and is number 4. After you search it you will find the "Stone of the 3rd
Moon". Now that you have the Stone and the Experience go ahead and pust
that stone if front of the room. In that room you can find a Burn Storm 
and a Lucerne Hammer. Once you have those, head back to where the statues 
is. Use your "Stone of the 3rd Moon"(Bottom Choice) and this time you will
be in a different area. Head to the left. 

  You will now be in a long hall that has all of the pictures on the walls.
Those pictures will figure into a puzzle in just a little bit, but I have
the solution for you, so you don't need to look at them. Just keep heading 
to the left until you reach the next room. Kill the Paramount Chimera and
the go up to the painting. You will find out that it is Number 7 and titled
"The Chariot". Anyways you will then get the 1600 Bounus and you will also
get the "Stone of the Dark Stripe". Now that you have those, work your way
back to the Statue and use the "Stone of the Dark Stripe"(3rd from top).
Now head to the left and you will find yourself in a room that has many
doors. If you talk to the statue it will give you the clue.

          "Order from Lowest"
       "However, Exclude the Fool"

   If you want to figure out the puzzle by yourself, then skip this 
section. If not here is the solution:


Solution-
   As the clue says, you need to put the painting in order from the Lowest
to the Highest. But, you need to exclude the Fool. Now each door represts
a painting(you can find these by going to the other room). So what you have
to do is walk in each door, and then the Fool painting last. Here is what
the order would look like:

   Doors:8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1
         ---------------
   Order:6-5-1-4-3-7-2-8

   If you use that order, the door will open.


   Now after doing that the door will open(and you will get 20000 Exp Bonus
for doing it). Now head to the left. In this room you can grab a Ignite
Javalin. After you have that search the painting. Once you do you will get
the "Stone of the New Moon". Once you have it, head back to the statue and
use it(Bottom Choice). Now start heading to the left. Now jump to the top
and you can find a chest that contains an Eye of Heaven. Once you have it
jump to the top platform. When you reach it Valkyrie will note that it is
some sort of Machine. You will then be asked if you wish to activate it.
Say that you do(Top Answer). The Machine will then spin for a while and
then eventually stop. Now head back to the "Warp Statue" and this time you
should use your "Stone of the Black Spot"(2nd Choice from Top). 

   Start heading to the left and eventually you will reach a big room like
before. As soon as you enter, the machine will start to work. After it is
finshed a door will appear(and you get 50000 Experience). However, before
you head to the door, head up and you can find a chest that contains a 
Cool Dazzel. Once you have that, take the door at the bottom. You will be
in a room that has a save point(so Save). Now this next part will probably
take you a couple of tries(it did me). So start by walking to the right.
The statues that you can talk to will tell you about how to avoid the
Guardians. Once you reach the next room jump up and the grab the chest(has
a Shield Critical in it). Then jump to the left and enter the door. 

  Now don't move for a while. Eventually a Statue will charge up to you.
If you get hit by this, it will warp you to a different area(which you 
should do since you can gain an easy Level down there). So if you get hit,
just walk around for a while and eventually a statue will appear. Now after
the statue has turned around, follow it. Eventually the statue will stop
and create a door in the wall. Enter that door. Now in this room if you
want to get the chest(has a Dragon Slayer in it, so it is worth it) here is
what you have to do. You need to shoot crystal to the side of the wall
and then jump over the statue and run. Then wait until the statue leaves,
and open the chest. It will probably take a few times before you can 
successfully get away with it. After you have it, enter the door that is
near the Dragon Slayer. In this room you can find a Crystal and a Lightning
Bolt. Once you have those head back out and take the door that is to the
left. Now head to the left and you will have to do the same dodge the
Guardian thing again. Once you do it you will be able to find a Mind 
Reinforce and a Spell Reinforce. There is somthing else that you have to
do in this room. This to me, was probably one of the most frustrating parts
of the game, since It took me 2 hours to do this. Anyways if you talk
to the statues they will explain that when a Guardian gets tired it will
go to sleep. So what you have to do is let that Guardian chase you arround,
constantly for about 2-6 times. By Constantly, I mean that you have to jump
over it and have it run at you from the other way too. Anyways once you 
finally do this(If someone has a better way of doing this, please let 
me know)you will be able to get the final stone, the "Stone of the Crimson
Flame". You also get 1600 Experience Points. Now head back to the Save
Point and Save. Then head to the Warp Statue. When it asks you which stone
choose the "Stone of the Crimson Flame"(4th from top). You will then be
warped to a new area, where you can Save. Save the game and then walk to
the left. 

   You will see Gannos and a couple of Soldiers near a Giant Throne. Gannos
will be wondering why Carbunkle isn't here. Gannos then wonders if the 
information he got was wrong. The screen will then start to shake violently
and all of a sudden a Giant Golem will rise up. Gannos will note what power
that things has. He then realizes that the Golem must be powered by that
gem, and he doesn't want to destroy it. So while Gannos is wondering what
to do, The Golem will then walk and the Soldiers will intercept it. But, 
All of a sudden, A Huge Blast of Energy comes in a destroys both the Golem 
and the Soldiers. Frei then warps into what is left of the smoking mess.
Gannos will wonder what is going on. Valkyrie will then run on the screen
and is supprised by Frei. She asks Frei what she is doing here. Frei will
explain that she is just following Odin's orders. Frei then goes on to say
that this Human is particularly dangerous so that is why...He must die.
Valkryie will be taken aback by this. Frei then says that there is no 
reason that they can't use his Soul. Frei then say that those are Odin's
Orders. Gannos will be outraged at this. You will then enter a battle with
him.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Gannos

HP:35000

Recommended Level:29

Attacks:Fire Lance
        
Weakness:None

EXP:180000

Strategy:If you can't take Gannos out on the first turn, things can't get
         really bad in this battle. But, Luckily you can take him out 
         easily in one turn. Be it by Celestial Astral/Meteo Swarm, or 
         I found that just one Nibelgen Velocity or a Dragon Dread took
         Gannos out as well. All in all you should be fine if you have 
         either the Maken:"Gram" or the Valkyrie Feavor. 

   After the battle, you will see Valkyrie and Gannos alone. Gannos will
be telling Valkyrie that he will never work for her. Valkryie will say that
is fine, he can just spend some time with the Princess of Hell. Gannos
will get mad at this. Valkyrie then asks him what he is going to do. 
She goes on to say that her Master would be willing to pay for his power, 
or he could go work for free for the Princess of Hell. Gannos will start to
laugh. Gannos will then ask if the Soul Hunter, The War Goddess Valkyrie, 
would be bargaining for his Soul. Gannos then says that it is fine, but
that he will do it like he always has. The screen will fade back to the
Dragon Mansion and you will now have three chests in front of you. You
can find the, Dragon Face, The Schemes of the Cursed Soldiers, and the
Hourglass of God. After you do that, you will get an Experience Bonus of
500000. However, before you go if you stack the Treasure Chests on the
throne and then jump up you will be able to see a Chest. In order to make 
it, you will need to do the Crystal Jump(Jump into the Dust of a Destroyed
Crystal). When you eventually make it up, you will get the 
Gouyari:"Dinosaur"(Sturdy Spear:"Dinosaur"). It is a nice little weapon for
Amy, but only during Boss Battles. I find I leave my Crimson Edge for just
exploring. Also you will now have Gannos, a pretty strong mage but, Leslie
is a little better. After you have done that you can leave.

    On the World Map, use your Soul Concetration and you will now be told
to goto the Forgotten Caves.

---------------
Forgotten Caves
---------------

   Just kill all of the enemies and then move on. Now when you use your
Soul Concentration, you will be taken to the Maze of the Aryan Road.

----------------------
Maze of the Aryan Road
----------------------

   I can't not give a walkthrough for this place. You will soon understand
why. I will just give you a list of all the rooms and then some tips as to
how this work.

   First you will see Numbers on little screens. This tells you what room
you will be warped to. Some rooms make you do some simple math to figure
out where your going. If you want the Number to change, just go to the Orb
and then you will be warped. Now here is a list of all the Choices(Note 
that you start in room 1).

 Room         Warp          
------       ------
  1           3,10         (Eye of Heaven)
  2           9,20
  3           1,5,16,24
  4           1,3,13,23,
  5           7
  6           4,11,14,21
  7           3,6
  8           9,18         (Youtou:"Chrome Ray")
  9           3
 10           8,13
 11           10,15,17,18  (Lotus Gem)
 12           13,14
 13           5,12         (Masou:"Eternal Falts")
 14           7,21         (Ninyumi:"Fall Slayer")
 15           8,19
 16           21
 17           12,15,20,25
 18           16,18,20,22
 19           10,14
 20           9,24
 21           1,2,12,13    (Matsue:"Apoclypse")
 22           2,18
 23           1
 24           1,15
 25           Boss,1       (3x Artifacts)

    You can grab some very good items. So I recommend that you grab all the
items then work your way into Room 17. Save you game, Then just head to 25.
Valkyrie will walk to the left and you will see a Soldier. Valkyrie will
tell it to leave the Human World. Eventually the Dark Lord will talk
about how he will take souls, Valkyire will get mad,etc. Eventually you
will enter a battle.

Boss Battle

Name:Dark Lord
     2x Demon:"Varan"

HP:
   Dark Lord:415000
   Demon:"Varan":70000

Recommended Level:34

Attacks:
   Dark Lord:2x Physical
   Demon:"Varan":Disaster Bolt
        
Weakness:None

EXP:231000

Strategy:Luckily the Dark Lord won't attack you until you kill the two
         Demons. So just use your Standard Clinchers on them(or a Celestial
         Astral). Then you have to deal with the Dark Lord. He can do a 
         ton of damage(30000+). But, if you can attack with all of your
         Characters, he should go down real easy. It will probably take
         6 or 8 rounds to win though. Guts and Auto Item are quite helpful
         here.

  After the battle if you goto the left you can pick up three artifacts.
When you grab the last one, you will get 500000 Expereince. Now just head
in the transport thing and you will be finshed with this place.

   Now use your Soul Concetration again and you will now be told to goto
the Castle of Heaven.

--------------------
The Castle of Heaven
---------------------

   Before I start, you may have some trouble getting to this place. You 
will be told the general direction, but in order to find it you have to 
fly to the highest that you can. Anyways, start by heading to the right.
Now talk the right door again and then head up. You will find a chest to
the left, it contains the final Lotus Gem. After you have it, walk to the
right and then head down. Walk all the way to the end and take the last
door that leads up. Kill all of the monsters in this hall and then head
back and take the middle door. Fall down to the bottom and head to the
right. This is the trick part of this dungeon. If you fall down, you have
to start this all over(and you lose two periods). Anyways, jump to the
right and grab those three chests. Then grab on to that chain and take
it over to the right. Now just do the same in the next room and when you 
have all the chests, head to the right. Anyways just keep following the
path with the stairs and eventually you will reach a room that has alot
of Buterflies. So what you have todo is kill them all and that will cause
the vine to the left to die(you get 80000 for doing it). Head to the left
and you will have to do the samething again(but this time you have to watch
out for those freezing lasers). When you do it you will get 80000 Exp. 
Bonus. Now head all the way to the left and you can pick up the Nintou:
Silvanse. That was the strongest weapon in SO and its stats are pretty much
the same(well the AP was reduced by 80 for VP). Anyways take the path that
leads down. Now following the path(I recommend that after you get past
that little garden that you start killing all of these monster, the give
a good amount of EXP). You will eventually reach a Save Point. So save your
game and then head to the right. 

   Valkyrie will start walking to the right and you will see J.D.Wallce.
J.D. will note that it is the Goddess. Valkyrie will say that she will
Seal J.D. away in time. Valkyrie then goes on to ask J.D. why she needs
the blood of the living. Eventually you will enter battle with J.D.

               Poison Blow

   Demonic Baron:2x Physcial

Weakness:
   J.D.Wallace:Holy

EXP:168000

Strategy:Okay, this battle is actually much easier than the Aryan Road.
         First turn make sure to cast Reflect Sorcery, or otherwise you
         can lose this battle very quickly. Then just take out the Demonic
         Barons. Now, to take out J.D. just use your Clinchers with a 
         Celestial Astral somewhere in it and you will win easily.

   Now, go grab all the artifacts. After you have done that you will get
500000 for doing this. Now, just leave this and head to the World Map.

   You are now done with Chapter 8. Now it is time to find out what Ending
you get.

Ending A
--------
   If your Seal Rating is below 40, and you have sent Rucio up during
Chapter 5 or 6. Press Start and you will be told to goto the Small Meadow.
Skip down to Section 2.11 to find out what is next.


Ending B
--------
   If your Seal Rating is above 40(or you have already seen Ending A). Then
just waste out the rest of the periods. Head to Section 2.10 to find out
what is next.

       2x Flare Crystal
       2x Noble Elixer
       Lapis
       Maken:"Leviathan"

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

   As soon as you run out the rest of your periods on Chapter 8, you will
be called to Valhalla. The Words Ragnarok will then come up on the screen.
The a message will follow. It will tell you that Sult is a very important
Van God Member and he is currently in his Ice Palace. You must go in 
and destroy him(This is a shortend version of what it says). A Man named
Toll will come up on the screen. Toll will say that you can take your 
all of your characters in to destroy King Sult. Vazal will then say that
the Jostenheim Palace is a very dangerous place. Chule will then say that
Sult is guarded by very strong people. Aile will tell you to that this is
an important Job. Helmoth will ask what you are waiting for. Ulu will say
that you will be fine. Frei then comes up and gives you 24990 Materlize
Points. You will then be told that you are heading to the Jostenheim Palace
and it explains about it(that is where the Van Army resides). Anyways
it will then tell you to prepare for the battle(i.e. The game needs to 
load).

   You will now be in the Jostenheim Palace. Head to the left and Save
your game. Take the first door that leads up. Then take the path that
leads up again. Now in this room you can find a chest that contains a 
Mental Reaction. This is a good skill. It lets your Mage use spells every
2 turns by giving up some DME. After you have that, head to the left. You
will now see some platforms. You need to jump on these, but becareful since
the disappear. If you head to the right you can find a Freeze Check and a
Foxglove. Once you have those you can find a door near the upper right.
Now walk across the long bridge until you reach the next screen. When you
can, fall down to the bottom. On either side of this room you can find a
chest. One contains a Eye of Heaven and the other has a Fox Glove. Once
you have those head to the left. Again walk across the Long Bridge and
you will eventually reach a room that has a Blue Flame, a Green Flame, and
a Red Flame. Now what you have to do is, Mix the Blue Flame with the Red
Flame in the bottom pedastel. Once you have done that, you will get 
120000 Experience. Then take the path at the top right, and head back all
the way to that Save Point at the enterence. Now keep going to the left
this time. Head to the left again. You will now be in a room that has a
door to the left and some platforms. Jump on the platforms, until you reach
the door near the top right. Follow the path and enter the door that leads
up when you can. Take it again and you will be in a room where you can
find a Flare Crystal, and a Plant Seeds. Once you have those, head back
down and go to the left. When you reach the switchback, you can find a
chest that contains a Flare Crystal. Now keep heading to the right and
you will eventually end up where you started. Now take the bottom route
that leads to the left. Head left for one screen. In the next room be sure
to watch out for the Icicles Falling and keep going to the left. Now this 
room happens to have some treasure chests at the bottom. One is to the 
right and the other is to the left near the spikes. Once you have those, 
use the platforms to make your jumps to the top left. Now grab the chest
and then use the platforms again to jump up to the top right. Keep heading
to the right. Just follow the path until you reach a door. Take the door
and then head to the left. In this room you can grab a Ether Scepter and
a Foxglove on the left platforms. Once you have those head to the top
right opening.

   Now Save your game. You are about to fight the Strongest Monster(in 
Normal). Once you have Saved your game head to the right. But, make
sure that each Character has an Angel Cure equipped. After you head to
the right You will see a Monster there. Walk up to it and you will get in 
a fight.

Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Magic Dragon:"Blood Vein"

HP:222000

Recommended Level:33

Attacks:
        
Weakness:None

EXP:200000

Strategy:This is one hard battle. There is no easy way to win it. As you
         can see by its HP you haven't faught anything close to it even
         yet. It's Normal Attack deal about 8000 damage, its Breath attack
         deals 20000 to all. And if that wasn't bad enough once you take
         about 1/4 of its HP away it will start to use a Gravity Gate that
         can do about 90000 damage. Now that you know what you are up 
         against, we can talk strategy. Now, I have fought this battle 
         probably 30-40 times. So what I have found is 3 things. One, make
         sure that the party used has the best weapons(Maken:"Gram", 
         Dinosaur, etc.). Second, use a Reduce Guard on it, to make this
         battle easier. Third, A Phoenix Feather/Angel Cure can really 
         change this battle. Anyways now that is done I used a party of 
         Valkyrie, Rucio, Amy, and Gannos. Once I had used the Reduce 
         Guard, I just use the following order:Nibelgen Velocity, Dragon 
         Dread, Celestial Astral/Meteo Swarm, Round Lip Sabre. You will 
         also probably have to use alot of Union Plums for this battle, 
         so stock up. As I said before, there is no easy way to win this.

   After the battle a chest will be there. If you open it you will get the
Maken:"Levaithan". It is the strongest weapon in the game (In Normal, the
actual strongest weapon in the game is 10x stronger than the 
Maken:"Levaithan"). After you have it save. Go back to where you entered
and this time continue along the path. After a while, you will eventually
meet some Van Shinzoku that are just standing still. These are the 
strongets, but just keep killing them and moving along the path. And 
after you meet the first Van Shinzoku, in the room where you have to jump
over to the right you can find some chests that are hidden by pillars.
Anyways just keep following the path. Eventually you will reach a dead-end
and there will be a flame. Search the Flame and you will the get the 
"Refining Flame". Not what you have to do, is as quick as possible run 
back to the right three rooms. This will probably take a couple tries.
Once you successfully do it, a passage will open up. You will get 120000
Experience for doing that. Now just follow the path all the way along until
eventually you will reach a Save Point. Once you have reached that Save 
Point, I go back and gain some levels. As you probably noticed on your
way over here, Mithril Golems give great experience. So I go back there
and genreally gain up to about 40-45, so I have no problems. Once you have
done that, head back and Save the Game. When you make sure that you have
enough DME head to the right.

   You will now see Sult, who is flanked by two Van Shinzoku. Valkyrie will
wonder if he is the Ringleader, Sult. Valkyrie then says that his time is
up. Sult will stay silent. Valkyrie then goes on to explain that Master
Odin sent her and that she will kill him with her own sword. Sult will
pause for a moment and then say that it looks like they aren't even. 
Valkyrie will ask him what that is supposed to mean. Sult will say that he
thought you have more sense than that. Sult then stands up and you get in
a battle.

  However, before the battle starts Sult will go into a speech about how
since you work for Odin you are a Heretic and so he will destroy you(That
is the general just of what he said). After that he draws his sword and
attacks.

Weakness:None

EXP:300000

Strategy:Well...This is the final battle, but if you beat Blood Vein you 
         will have no problems with this battle. The first thing you will
         want to do is to take out the Van Shinzoku. I find that just using
         a Celestial Astral/Meteo Swarm works great. After you have done
         that you can just gang up on Sult. Sult can do quite a bit of 
         damage, but he is not as bad as Blood Vein.

   After the battle you will see Frei. She will congratulate you and your
army for defeating the Van Shinzoku. Frei then continues by talking about
how Odin is proud of you and all of Valhalla is happy. Anyways when that
is done the credits will roll. Now you understand why Ending B is the 
bad Ending. 

   Now the next time you play the game make sure to keep your Seal Rating
under 40(this is a Stat that you can only see on Valkyries Status Screen).
And in order to keep it under 40 you will need to not send characters up
every time.

   As soon as you enter, Valkryie will start walking to the left. While
she is walking you will listen to Rucio ask Valkryie to take that Earring
to the Tombstone. Once Valkyrie reachs the Tombstone she will dig for a
while and you will then see the Earring. Valkyrie will wonder what she is
doing here. She will then pull out the Earring. Valkyrie will then comment
on how this is bringing back memories...You will then see some various 
scenes of the Prolouge where Rucio and Platina escape. After that you will
see when Rucio and Valkyrie recreated the experience. And finally after
that you will see Loki taking out Rucio. The scene will switch back to
Odin and Frei. Frei will comment about the Seal Breaking. Odin ask's
if that means her memories are coming back. Frei says that it does. Odin
will ask if she planned for this. Frei replies that a Good Secretary is
always has a plan. The screen will go black and you will then her Frei say
that the Seal is breaking...

   You will now see Valkyrie holding her stomach. She will wonder what these
feelings are. You will then see Arlia(I don't know why the game put her name
in ????, You already know who she is). Anyways Valkyrie will then ask for
Aluze and Meltina to help her. You will now see Arlia surrounded by a 
Black Light(She just absorbed Valkyrie). Now Aluze and Meltina will walk on
the screen. Aluze will ask what that just was now. Meltina will tell Aluze
to hold it, saying that she looks different. Aluze will ask who that is.
????(I might as well play along too...)says that she is Valkryie. But, that
she won't need Aluze and Meltina anymore. Aluze will wonder if this is some
kind of joke. He then asks Arlia if he remembers him. Arlia says that she
does, they both faught the Vampire King Bram. But, after the battle Aluze
switched sides to gain more power. Aluze will ask what she meant by that.
Arlia will say that she doesn't have time to fight you, since she has to
goto Bram and rescure the Third Goddess of Fate; Slymelia, and then defeat
the Van Shinzoku and then go kill the Undead. Aluze will then ask what is
wrong with Valkyrie. Arlia says that since he has asked three times she
will tell him. She explains that she is the Eldest Daughter Arlia, and that
she is the Next Valkyrie. Meltina will ask if Rennas Valkyrie is her real 
name. Arlia will say that it is...and then goes on to explain about how it 
was her Dream to become Valkyrie, and Odin then gave it to her. Both Aluze 
and Meltina will mull this idea over, and both don't think it is possible.
Arlia says that she understands, She then powers up a Blast of Energy and
as she Fire the Real Valkyrie will tell her to stop. The Real Valkyrie
will then protect Aluze and Meltina from the blast. After the Blast you
will see little Blue Orbs floating arround. Arlia will then say that it
looks like Valkyrie is awake. Arlia will then say that it doesn't matter,
she will kill you at a different place, and she then warps out. Meltina 
will look at the Blue Orbs and say that she could have never believed this.
As Meltina walks over, Aluze will ask what those lights are. Meltina will
tell him that it is Valkyrie's Spirit...and that must mean Valkyrie is 
still here. Aluze is confused by this. A Voice will then come out that will
tell Mel that she should freeze it together. Meltina will recognize that 
voice. She then casts a spell that turns all of Valkyrie's spirit into a
little Crystal. The Voice will say that was Very Smart. A Pentagram will
then form and Rezard will come out. Meltina will hide the Crystal and then
asks Rezard what he is doing here. Rezard will say that he just likes to
practice his spells. He then goes on to say that his Teleportation allows
him to be where he wants to be. Rezard will then ask if they wan't to fight
over that body. He then says that he has decided to help Valkyrie and that
he is probably the only guy who can do it. Meltina will get upset at Rezard
but asks if he can do it. Rezard says of course he can. Rezard will now say
that they need to head back to the Labratory. Meltina will agree, but warns
him not to change forms. Rezard will say that he is not interested in that
Body...and he promises. Meltina will ask what a Promise from Rezard is 
worth. Rezard will just shrug...

   The scene will now shift to the Labratory. Meltina will ask what they
need. Rezard will say there, and the camera will shift to the Homosclosus
from before. Meltina will tell him to wait, asking if he is going to 
combine Valkyrie and a Homosclosus. Rezard will say that was what he was
planning to do. Meltina will ask if Rezard still has his ambition of 
becoming a God. Rezard will shrug and say that if they don't believe him
he has some friends who can vouch for him. Then in a cuter moment of this
game Meltina and Aluze will ask what friends Rezard has. After this Rezard
will change the subject and explain that in order for Valkyrie to become
whole again they will need to get her Memories back. The scene will now
go on about how Aluze says that they will probably have to fight to get
Valkyrie back and then Rezard will explain that he will use a "Soul Refining
Spell". Which will combine Valkyries Soul with a Homosclosus. So Meltina
eventually gives up the Crystal and then Rezard cast a spell that combines
the Crystal(Valkyries Spirit) with the Homosclosus. You will then see a
girl that looks like Platina. Now you are in Meltina's Room. Aluze will ask
if this all worked. Rezard will say that it did, and then tells them to
look. You will now see the little Valkyries/Platina get up. Meltina will
wonder if this is what a "Soul Refining Spell" can do. After this Aluze
asks if Valkyrie is OK. Rezard explains that she is only partially fine.
They will need to get the Memories of Valkyrie and then a big change will
take place. Aluze will wonder if they will need to find that Arlia. Meltina
then says that they will defeat her, and that she knows where she is. 
Rezard will says she is probably at the Immortal Vampire;Bram's Castle...

   You will now see Meltina, Aluze and Rezard entering Bram's Throne Room.
The screen will move a little to the left and you will see Arlia leveling
her sword at Bram. She then drops her sword and turns arround. Bram will
say that it was strange when you talked about Fate. He then wonders exactly
who that Woman is. Aluze will say that Valkyrie told him about fate, but
now he is going to change it. Rezard will then speak up and say that he
thinks that Fate can be changed too. Meltina will then talk about taking
down Arlia. Bram will now say that he understands, this isn't the true
Valkyrie. Arlia will start laughing and then asks them what they know.
Meltina now tells Arlia that she will get Valkyries Soul. Arlia then goes
into a little speech bascially asking what difference it would make. Rezard
then says that it looks like they are going to have to defeat Arlia. Your
party will then get into Battle Formation, but Bram will suddenly blaze by
Arlia and join your Party. Bram will say that he understands. She is Arlia
the Eldest Daughter of the Three Goddess of Fate. He then asks her what
power she has. Arlia will be speechless about this. Bram now says that they
will have to settle this in battle. And then that they will make Valkyrie
whole again. Arlia will be upset at this. Bram will now talk to Aluze and
say that he has quite a destiny. Aluze will wonder what this is about. Bram
goes on by saying that it looks like they are combining their strengths to
defeat this woman. 


-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Arlia

HP:12000

Recommended Level:33

Attacks:Nibulgen Velocity
        
Weakness:None

EXP:0

Strategy:This battle is extremely easy. Arlia won't be able to touch both
         Bram and Rezard(But, they are pretty weak right now too). So just 
         all attack when you are ready and you will decimate her.

   After the Battle you will see Meltina condense the Blue Orbs again.
Aluze will now thank Bram for his help. Bram will say that it didn't have
anything to do with it. Aluze will say that he doesn't understand this.
Bram explains that Aluze has all he needs to survive. After this Bram will
say that he looks forward to meeting you again, and then disappears. 
Meltina will say that he was a Weird Guy. Rezard will wonder if he had 
somthing else to do. Meltina thinks that is a possibility. Rezard then
says that you occasinally need a fresh start. Meltina asks him if he has
any sense, and then tells them that they need to get Valkyrie back. Meltina
and Aluze will then start to walk away...

   Back in the Labratory, Rezard will say that it is time to begin. Meltina
will give an Okay and they will both begin to cast a spell. The spell will
cause the "Child Valkyrie" to turn into a Crystal and then combine with
Valkyries Memories. And after the screen flashes a few times you will see
the Original Valkyrie back. She will then clutch her head and fall to the
ground(notice the great job that Touma Yume does in this next part). Aluze
will notice that it is Valkyrie. Meltina now asks if it worked. Rezard
answers that it looks that way. Meltina will now walk over to Valkyrie and
kneel, asking her if she is okay. When Valkyrie doesn't answer Meltina 
worries about her. Rezard is now puzzled, wondering if she still hasen't
changed from her Kid form. You will now have a flashback. You will see
Miria sitting in the forest. Valkyrie will then repeat what she said about
how both the Strong and the Weak have the same heart. Valkyrie will then
who said that. She will then have another about to stay. You will then see
the Rucio death scene, where he tells about how he tells Clair to stay.
After that the scene will switch to the prolouge where you see Platina
die and Rucio saying that he will never forget her. Valkyrie then thinks
of Rucio and wonders if she was wrong to summon him. Valkyrie then tells
him not to die. Valkyrie then realizes that she has a Human Soul, and 
wonders if she is the same. She then goes on to wonder what a War Goddess
is, and then wonders if she is just some dead god. Valkyrie then realizes
that Human and Gods are really the same (Something Rezard realized back in 
Chapter 4...). Now after this you will see the Tour that Rucio gave of
the Village. Valkyrie then realizes what the Earring was about. You will
now see Valkyrie next to Platina. Platina will talk about how this seems
like a Dream. You will now see Valkyrie clutching her head saying that this
can't be. Valkryie then screams and you will be back with Rezard, Meltina
and Aluze. Eventually Valkyrie will wonder what is going on with her. She
will then disappear and Aluze will wonder about her. The scene will shift
back to the Small Meadow. Aluze will yell at Valkyrie to Calm Down. 
Valkyrie will yell that she has to find the Earring from Rucio. She then 
continues to search for it but can't find it. Valkyrie eventually stops 
and wonder why Rucio would die. Valkyrie then wants the cruelity to stop.
The camera will then pan out...

   You will now see Loki with Sult. Sult will wonder what he came to see
him about. Loki says that he has some things that can help the Van 
Shinzoku...since they are so weak. This affends the Guards and they are 
ready to attack. Loki then talks about the Gungnir, Silvan Bow, and the 
Dragon Orb. Loki says that Odin possess Three of the 4 Treasures. Loki
will then goes on to say that even a Idiot would realize that Sult can't
win. Loki goes on to say that he could lend his power to them. He then
pulls out the Dragon Orb. Sult instantly notices what it is. Loki tells
him that it is the Dragon Orb. Loki goes on to say that he has some more
things to help him that he can show Sult. Sult will tell him to do so. 
Loki will give an ok...You will then see a Giant Wolf and Dragon Warp
in. Sult will recognize the Wolf as the Magic Wolf:Fernir, but he says that
the dragon couldn't be... Loki will say that it is, The Last of the
Four Treasures. The Maken:Levaithan turned into a Dragon...The Magic 
Dragon:Blood Vein. Loki will ask what they think, since they have:

   Four Treasure+Four Treasures+Four Enemies+Two Beasts. 

   Sult will say that it is an interesting plan, but is wondering about
the Magic Power that Loki has. Loki will ask if he wants to show him. Sult
will say that he does. Loki will eventually changes into his True Form.

   (Please note that this is an extremely short summery of what goes on.)

   Now the game will go on to explain about all the characters that will
be in this next scene. After that you will eventually see Loki standing
against Odin. Odin then gets his Gungnir. Loki is impressed that he is
using it against him, but since Odin doesn't have the Four Treasures he
has no Power now. Just as they are about to start, Frei warps in and is
about to attack Odin when Odin tells her to stop. Saying that since Loki
has the Dragon Orb it would do no good. Just as Odin and Loki start to
fight you will see Valkyrie standing with Philia. Philia will explain about
how the Dragon Orb has the power to destroy the Human World. Valkyrie then
talks about how it doesn't matter. Philia then says that Valkyrie should
talk to Frei. So the scene will shift to Valkyrie with Frei and the defeated
Odin. Frei and Valkyrie will talk about what this all matters and eventually
Valkyrie will decided that she has to save the Human World. And after this
you will head Earth Guild.

   Well...Here is the Walkthrough for this area...Follow the Path. After
about ten screens you will reach a Save Point. Save your game and prepare
for a very tough battle. When you are ready, head up once more and you
will run into the Magic Dragon:Blood Vein. 

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Magic Dragon:"Blood Vein"

HP:222000

Recommended Level:35

Attacks:Gravity Gate
        Prismic Missle
        
Weakness:None

EXP:200000

Strategy:This is one hard battle. There is no easy way to win it. As you
         can see by its HP you haven't faught anything close to it even
         yet. It's Normal Attack deal about 8000 damage, its Breath attack
         deals 20000 to all. And if that wasn't bad enough once you take
         about 1/4 of its HP away it will start to use a Gravity Gate that
         can do about 90000 damage. Now that you know what you are up 
         against, we can talk strategy. Now, I have fought this battle 
         probably 30-40 times. So what I have found is 3 things. One, make
         sure that the party used has the best weapons(Maken:"Gram", 
         Dinosaur, etc.). Second, use a Reduce Guard on it, to make this
         battle easier. Third, A Phoenix Feather/Angel Cure can really 
         change this battle. Anyways now that is done I used a party of 
         Valkyrie, Rucio, Amy, and Gannos. Once I had used the Reduce 
         Guard, I just use the following order:Nibelgen Velocity, Dragon 
         Dread, Celestial Astral/Meteo Swarm, Round Lip Sabre. You will 
         also probably have to use alot of Union Plums for this battle, 
         so stock up. As I said before, there is no easy way to win this.

   After the battle you can pick up the Maken:Levathan. Once you have this
keep heading along the path. After about 5-6 more screens you will arrive
at another Save Point. Save your Game(and equip Freeze Checks on a couple
of Characters). After you do that head up and run into the Magic Wolf:
Fernir.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Magic Wolf:"Fernir"

HP:250000

Recommended Level:35

Attacks:Howling Moon
        
Weakness:Fire

EXP:175000

Strategy:This battle can be very easy...if you have the Old Latern or
    Freeze Checks. Otherwise the last half of this battle will be nearly
    impossible. But, The first half of this battle is very easy. However,
    once you have taken away 3/4 of its HP it will start using Howling
    Moon. It's will basically freeze your entire party. And the problem is
    that it will keep using it until you die. So just be prepared and you
    will win(Fernir is far weaker than Blood Vein). Or of course you can
    use use the Gurenken:Infernous...

   After you win, just keep heading up until you reach another Save
Point. Now Make sure that you characters are healthy and when you are
ready, head up. You will see Loki with his back to you. Valkyrie will
level her sword at him and shout out his name. Loki will turn arround and
ask Valkyrie how when he was able to defeat Odin, she could defeat him.
Loki will then make a comment about how you were just used by Odin.
This gets Valkyrie angry and Loki continues by saying that Humans can't
do anything to him. Loki eventually says that he will fight with you...but
this is a little below him. As you enter the battle Valkryie and Loki will
talk for a bit. Loki will ask Valkyrie why she fights and Valkyrie says
that it is for her Soul.

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Loki

HP:400000

Recommended Level:37

Attacks:Physcial
        Extension Force

Weakness:None

EXP:210000

Strategy:You will quickly find that unless you Party is Level 99 or you 
   just have Mages that you can't do much damage to him. So basically all
   you have to do is survive for about 3-4 rounds. However, you will need
   to watch out for Extension Force, as it will probably kill your weaker
   characters outright.

   You will be back to the Ledge where Loki will make comment about how the
Maken:Leviathan is just your Average Weapon. Valkyrie will wonder what he
meant by that. Loki will then go on to say that you and your Humans have
fought with all their strenght and accomplished nothing. And that even
Frei and Odin weren't able to touch him, so why should you. He then goes
on to say your Bravery will get you killed. Loki then talks about how 
he is Life. Eventually the screen will crackle and Valkyrie will say
that it can't be. You will now see a Well Done FMV of the Dragon Orb slowly
sucking the Life from everything and destroying it. You will now see 
Valkyrie standing in a "Force Field". Loki will be laughing and saying that
you must have and increbible power to survive, but that you will die 
like the rest of your Underlings. You will now see Valkyrie sitting very 
solemly. Loki will ask Valkyrie what she is going to do. Valkyrie says that
she has found the answer. Loki asks what that means. Valkyrie will explain 
that the world still exists, she can hear all of the voices. Loki is 
confused at this as Valkyrie goes on to explain that she can now sense all 
of the suffering in this world. A Light will the surround Valkyrie as she 
floats up into the Air. Loki makes a comment about the power she has. 

   You will now be in a Flashback. You will see Rezard explain to Meltina
that Odin is a Weak God. Eventually explain that he is Half-Elf. And then
you hear Rezard's plan to transfer himself to a Homosclosus. You will then
see Rezard and Meltina combine the Homosclosus with Valkryie(Let me explain
this another way...by "Re-Making Valkryie" they were able to make her
stronger). Now Valkyrie will be standing and she will understand where she
got this power. Valkyrie then hops up into the Air and Flaps her wings.
You will then see another FMV of the Feathers redoing the damage that the
Dragon Orb caused. It is very well done. You will now be back and Loki
wonders if this is your True Power, saying that it can't be. Valkyrie then
says that she will need all of her Heart. You will then hear Rucio shout
encourgement to Platina. Valkyrie then says that she has it. Valkyrie will
then cause a Sword to appear(The Shinken:Glance Reviver) and then the rest
of your party will reappear as well. Loki will now make a comment about
how even though you have a lot of power, you will still die. Valkyrie will
then explain that she hasn't used all of her power. You will then get in
battle again...

-----------
Boss Battle
-----------

Name:Loki

HP:400000

Recommended Level:37

Attacks:Physcial
        Extension Force
        Dragon Orb(Very Cool)

Weakness:None

EXP:210000

Strategy:With the Shinken:Glance Reviver you will be able to do a ton of
   damage to Loki. Plus it allows you to use your Full Nibelgen Velocity.
   However, Loki will start using some more powerful attacks this time
   arround too. However, This battle is almost too easy. Because Valkyrie
   will be able to take away 1/2 of his HP every time she uses her Clincher.
   So just make sure that you have some Angel Cures equipped and you will
   be fine(or Auto Item is always good too). 

   After the battle enjoy the short(Very Short)FMV Ending. And you have now
finshed Valkyrie Profile.
