All the necessary information for the FAQ is now complete.  Yay!

July 07, 2000  -  0.9a
     Just a simple update adding notice for all the sites allowed to
post this FAQ.  There's no new information in the FAQ itself.

June 23, 2000  -  0.9
     Second release.  Added the Forbidden Tome and every section is
complete except for the Quests/Cactus Diaries and the Monsters
Encyclopedia.  Just missing two quests and two monsters.  D'oh!

June 18, 2000  -  0.8
     First official release.  The majority of the information is
available, but it's not quite complete.  It will be soon, though, when I
get around to finishing the game.  =^,^=

June 13, 2000  -  0.1
     Officially began working on the FAQ.  This is going to be fun.

     Given the time and the drive to do so, I wish to expound upon the
information already available.  For example, I'd like to add item drops
to the monster encyclopedia, as well as which monsters appear in what
lands, and effectiveness descriptions to each of the abilities and
special techniques.  Time will tell if and when that happens, though.

___/ B.   About this FAQ   \____________________________________________

     If you're looking for a walkthrough that'll give you a free ride
through an interesting and occasionally challenging game, well then
you've come to the wrong place.  This FAQ is merely a compilation of
information about Legend of Mana (a hefty chunk read directly from the
TV screen and typed up onto the computer) intended for quick reference.
There's a LOT of information and it took a LOT of time to put it all
together, being as I've taken it upon myself to do this all by myself.
Granted this isn't my first FAQ (I did a Killer Instinct FAQ back in
'95-'96 and a Castlevania: Symphony of the Night FAQ in '98, neither of
which are at GameFAQs, VGStrategies, or ClassicGaming), but it IS the
most I've ever worked on a single one.  Let's just say my fingers are
REALLY tired after all this typing.  Whew.  Anyway, I think I've
yammered on long enough.  I hope you find this FAQ useful.  I wish you
well in your endeavors.  =^,^=

____________________________________________/ II.   LoM Information \___
___/ C.   Flow of Time     \____________________________________________

Legend of Mana has days of the week, not unlike the real world.
However, it differs in that there are only six days instead of seven.
Using my best judgment, I think the days of the week flow in order shown
below.  Why do I believe this is correct?  Well if you look on the Land
screen you'll notice that Undine and Dryad are at opposite ends of the
mana scale.  Granted the days of the week don't follow the order of the
mana scale, not to mention that Shade and Wisp are not days of the week
at all, it still seems to make some amount of sense.  You're welcome to
argue it if you like - only the creators of the game could really
solidify what day begins and what day ends the week.

Week progression = Undine, Salamander, Aura, Gnome, Jinn, Dryad

___/ D.   Heads-Up Display \____________________________________________

During battle sequences a display will appear at the top of the screen
to represent the status of each character currently in your party.  It's
fairly simple to understand, but I figured I'd go over it anyway just
for the heck of it.  Following is a basic ASCII representation.
      _____                       _____
     |     |  <>   80%           |     |SYNC   HP%
     |     |/========--/         |PHOTO|/ HP METER /
     |_____/===---/              |_____ST METER

PHOTO    = A tiny portrait to represent the character
SYNC     = When electricity flows, characters are synchronized
HP%      = Shows what percentage of maximum HP the character has left
HP METER = Displays remaining HP in a colorful meter
ST METER = Displays the energy charge for Special Techniques and magic

Of special note is the HP Meter, which uses colors to represent how much
HP there is.  Following is a color scale.

     Red      =   1 - 100          Blue     = 501 - 600
     Yellow   = 101 - 200          Green    = 601 - 700
     Green    = 201 - 300          Blue     = 701 - 800
     Blue     = 301 - 400          Green    = 801 - 900
     Green    = 401 - 500          Blue     = 901 - 999

Enemies can have more than 999 HP, but the meters follow the same color
pattern.  As an estimate, the bosses have the same HP measurements
multiplied by 5.  So if a boss has half a green meter over yellow, it's
likely to have approximately 1250 HP left.

___/ E.   Controller Notes \____________________________________________

1.   QUICK ATTACKS - default to the EKS button
     Quick Attacks are basic, fast attacks that only do minor damage.
However, depending upon which weapon type your character is equipped
with, you can perform a few Quick Attacks (between 3 and 5 attacks - see
section K. EQUIPMENT for more details) in succession for a basic combo.
Be careful though, because should you tap the Quick Attack button more
times than the weapon can combo you'll fatigue your character and be
frozen for about two seconds.  You can also perform one Power Attack
anywhere within the combo chain if you choose, as well as either adding
Plunge Attacks after the Power Attack or any time in the combo chain.

2.   POWER ATTACKS - default to the SQUARE button
     Much more powerful than Quick Attacks, but one Power Attack will
cause fatigue, freezing your character for about two seconds.  There is
a way to avoid fatigue, though.  If you perform a Plunge Attack
immediately following a Power Attack, there's a good chance your
character will not be fatigued.  One exception to this is the Bow Plunge
Attack SHOT.  Your character will still fatigue even if you use this
move (unless you do another Plunge Attack afterwards).  Experiment to
see what works.

3.   PLUNGE ATTACKS - default to the SQUARE button
     Each weapon in Legend of Mana has three special attacks referred to
as Plunge Attacks.  These are fairly powerful attacks that will knock
away an opponent that is struck.  Anybody who's played a fighting game
within the last decade will instantly be familiar with how to
effectively use these moves.  But for those who haven't, I'll be as
specific and helpful as possible.  All of the weapons use the same
controller functions for their Plunge Attacks, though not every weapon
has the same Plunge Attacks.  This is especially noted with the Bows vs.
most melee weapons.  Following is a summary of how to do each of the
Plunge Attacks.  Please note that the following descriptions assume your
character is facing to the right.  Simply reverse the directions
horizontally if your character is facing to the left.

a.   Tap the direction you wish to
attack twice, holding the second press,                   ->  ->>  Power
and press the Power Attack button.

b.   Press Down and then circle the controller             .  ->>
to the direction you wish to attack, holding             |  \      Power
it, then press the Power Attack button.                  v

c.   Rock the controller from the opposite
direction to the direction you wish to attack,            <-  ->>  Power
holding it, and press the Power Attack button.

     For the most part, combos consist of mere chained button presses.
However, it is possible to add Abilities and Plunge Attacks into the
combo at almost any point, the majority of which will avoid fatiguing
your character.  Following is an example of a combo that can be
performed with any weapon.  Let's assume the character has a Sword
equipped.  This would perform three Quick Attacks, one Power Attack, and
one Plunge Attack, ending the combo with no fatigue.  This combo would
be described: slice, stab, slice, power-slice, lunging-thrust.

eg.  Quick  Quick  Quick  Power  ->  ->>  Power

Remember that the majority of melee weapons will basically be the same,
though they'll vary in how many Quick Attacks they can perform.  Be sure
to experiment with each weapon and see what works for you.

Also, if you can perform an extended combo (add an ability to the combo
and keep it running with more Quick Attacks), you might be rewarded with
a free candy to revive HP.  Though random, it generally takes anywhere
from three to twelve hits to be rewarded.

___/ F.   Quests/Cactus D. \____________________________________________

1.   NIC'S BUSINESS - Rid the highway of bandits!
     My master beat banditos with a creature called Niccolo.  Niccolo
was scared of the banditos, but I'm scared to know what Niccolo is.
What could he possibly be?

2.   TINY SORCERERS - Stop the rampant pumpkins!
     Today I heard a story about two little sorcerers trying to become
the kings of this world.  But pumpkins?  They used pumpkins?  I hope
they're still yummy.

3.   GAEUS'S WISDOM - Go with Daena to meet Gaeus!
     A big face on a mountain?  It's hard to believe, but my master saw
it, so I guess it's true.  It knows and doesn't know lots of things.
What an amazing world.

4.   WHERE'S PUTTY? - Rescue Putty from the Penguins!
     Today I heard about a scary macho man trying to find his doggie.  I
like doggies' pointy noses and their wagging tails.  Doggies are so much
cuter than macho men.

5.   THE LOST PRINCESS - To the cave in search of Pearl!
     Fighting a monkey in the caverns and saving a girl!  Wow, that
sounds like something out of a movie.  But the girl was really shy and
turned red, and I guess that was too much for my master.

6.   DIDDLE'S LETTER - To where did Pelican take Diddle?
     A pelican kidnapped a little boy?!  And it threw the boy away
somewhere?  That's just not right.  What are the people at the child
protection agency doing?

7.   TWO TORCHES - The case of Matilda in Gato...
     A cat-eared woman and a long-haired man had a fight, and a grandma
was kidnapped.  And then the two found the grandma.  I think this kind
of story is getting old.

8.   HUNTIN' DU'CATE - Hunt for Du'Cate in the jungle!
     Today my master saw a really big tree-hanging monkey and a really
BIG red animal with really BIG attitude.  Why can't they be like me?

9.   MURMURING FOREST - Foil the Faeries' scheme!
     Today's adventure was in the Jungle where lots of Faeries live.
The long-haired man was there again.  Is it just me, or is there trouble
brewing?  I think I'm psychic.

10.  GORGON'S EYE - War between Faeries and Penguins.
     Lots of penguins fell into the lake and their cap'n was thrown in
there by a turtle after being changed into stone!  Penguins can swim,
but stone can't!  Was the cap'n okay?  What a scary, scary story.

11.  SEEKING FAERIES - Find Daena and tell Matilda!
     Today's story was about a woman who disappeared when she went to
the lake to look for a demon.  I say she should've been catching fish
instead of any demons.

12.  TEATIME - Rescue Teapo from the ruins!
     It sounds like today's adventure was about opening and closing the
Flowerlings' gates.  And today's monster kept sucking out my master's
blood.  Stop bothering my master!

13.  STAR-CROSSED - To the ruins to meet Irwin!
     Escad and Daena are always fighting.  Why do people keep fighting
each other?  I wish for world peace.

14.  MINING BUSINESS - Take Watts back to his shop.
     The birdman says Watts doesn't have any heroic stories to tell.  I
wish someone will come up with a story about ME.  He moves like
lightning!  He kicks monster butt!  I think I like that.

15.  DREAM TELLER - Ask Pokiehl about Escad's past.
     My master went to a place that might have been a dream.  What does
that mean?  Maybe I can sneak in there when nobody is watching.

16.  DIDDLE KIDNAPPED - Rescue Diddle from the forest!
     A little boy named Diddle was kidnapped.  Diddle had a friend named
Capella who found him.  Wish I could be somebody's help.  No, seriously.

17.  HEAVEN'S GATE - To Lucemia to vanquish Irwin!
     A big big big big snake snake snake!  My master walked inside a
snake and went up to its head to fight a demon.  Do you think I believe
that kind of story?

18.  DADDY'S BROOM - Find Lisa's special broom!
     I threw away an old broom, and that made Bud and Lisa mad.  They
went and got it back, and fixed where it was broken.  I guess everything
is just hunky-dory now.

19.  INFERNAL DOLL - The dolls' hatred towards man.
     The junk at the Junkyard really wasn't junk!  They were the
leftovers of the artifacts used in wars long long ago.  Wow...  That
makes me like them a little.  Only a little bit.

20.  DIDDLE HAD IT! - Diddle's had enough of his job.
     What's the difference between people who like doing the same thing
everyday and the ones who don't?  I like being a cactus everyday, but
maybe I'm not supposed to.  Did I get that right?

21.  GLASS TOWER - Get to know Pearl at the tower.
     A girl went up a tower to see her past, or something like that.
I'm losing track of what's going on, and getting a little bit tired of
keeping my diary lately.

22.  TWO PEARLS - Search for Pearl in the tower!
     Pearl disappeared, and then Elazul found her.  But Blackpearl was
there too and wouldn't give Pearl back to Elazul.  We need more love in
this world.

23.  FLAME OF HOPE - Solve the unsolvable in Gato!
     Popo bug is reeaaally long, with lots and lots of knobs, and it's
easy to break one Popo bug to make two Popo bugs.  Who gets hurt when a
Popo bug is in someone's tummy?  The Popo bug?

24.  COSMO - Search for the kidnapped Pearl!
     Pearl disappeared again, so Elazul went and looked for her again.
Sandra and Lord Jewels and lots of people were in today's story.  It
made me sleepy.

25.  CAN'T LOOK BACK - Learn of Mephianse's past...
     I remember the part about a sorcerer named Mephianse, but I don't
remember anything else, because I sort of fell asleep.  I hope my master
didn't see me sleeping.

26.  A SIREN'S SONG - The Siren was persecuted.
     A birdgirl was trapped in a birdcage, and a fishgirl guarded the
birdcage for the birdgirl.  I want a friend who guards my cactus pot.

27.  SUMMER LOVIN' - David and Valerie's Endless Summer.
     Clobbering crabs at the beach!  That sounds like fun, but I feel
bad for the crabs.  Surprise lesson of the day: penguins can fall in

28.  DROWNED DREAMS - Ghosts in Polpota Harbor!?
     I hear that Basket Fish is a weirdo and has attitude problems.  He
should try harder, if he wants to become human.  I think I'll try harder

29.  FLOURITE - Into Florina's nightmare!
     Today it was about going to a desert and seeing desert people, or
something like that.  It was a bit difficult for me to understand.
Desert troopers?  Hurricane fighters?

30.  FAERIES' LIGHT - Help Monique sell some lamps.
     Learned Dudbear words to sell lamps to Dudbears!  Just what is
master up to?  But it's neat that master comes by to tell me funny
stories like that.

31.  LUCKY CLOVER - Adventure in Geo with Esmeralda!
     Another friend in my master's life.  She was a pile of dirt?  Did I
get that right?  I didn't know what to say to that, so I couldn't look
straight into my master's eyes.  Sorry.

32.  ALEXANDRITE - Escort Pearl to Diana of Geo!
     Hey, what does a Jumi say when he sees his people after a long
time?  "Jumis me?"  Get it?  "Ju-miss me?"  Wait, what's the matter?
You can't take the "pun"ishment?

33.  TEARDROP STONE - To the Jumi's Bejeweled City!
     I guess there is a place called the Bejeweled City in this world,
but that name sounds flakey.  I think my master was making up this

34.  QUIET SEA - The Buccaneer's sails fell slack.
     A penguin reeled-in a bottled ghost, and all the penguins on the
ship ended up collapsing!  That is really scary!  But I wonder how the
ghost fit inside a bottle?

35.  TREASURE MAP - A treasure map in Mekiv Caverns?
     Today my master joined a fight between the penguins and the
Dudbears.  Why?  I don't understand humans at all.

36.  REACH FOR THE STARS - Stop Mephianse's desert rampage!
     A sorcerer did a little old magic in the desert.  I was watching
it, too, and it was really cool!  I guess the ancient people thought
better things back then.

37.  DRAGON PRINCESS - Now for the third dragon!
     Larc is working for his Boss because he wants to get out of there.
But I think he is enjoying it.  I've got to see him to learn the truth.

38.  WIND GUARDIAN - Slay a dragon in the mountains!
     So my master fought lots of birds today.  I wonder if it hurts to
be poked around by their beaks?

39.  BONE DRAGON - Hunt the second dragon!
     Was it fun going up and down in the fort made of bones?  Or was it
scary?  I wouldn't know, because I'm only a cactus in a pot.

40.  CRIMSON DRAGON - On to Drakonis with Sierra!
     The Underworld went upside down and a burning castle came out.  And
there was a big dragon that master had to fight.  Cuz my master came
back, I guess the dragon is no more, right?

41.  FALLEN EMPEROR - To the depths of the Underworld!
     A dog-faced dragoon came out and took my master downstairs when
master touched a tombstone.  How am I supposed to picture this?  It's
really tough.

42.  BLESSED ELIXIR - Draw water from the oasis.
     The barrel in my master's soul had a blast at the desert.  Ah, the
desert!  Home of my soul, desert!  The hot, scorching sun and the dry,
dry air.  I need to go there.

43.  SEEING DOUBLE - A supernatural sighting in Domina.
     A tiny weirdo did all sorts of bad things today, and now a lot of
people got scratches on their hearts.  Little scratches on people's
hearts will be gone if they pat them from behind, but the humans don't
know that.

44.  CAGE OF DREAMS - The Sproutling outside is gone!
     Grandpa sorcerer hid a Sproutling in his dream!  Wow, that grandpa
can really do amazing things.  I wonder if I can do that?

45.  NIC'S BUSINESS 2 - To the waterfall to pick Greenballs!
     Greenballs look like locusts without their wings.  They don't look
that yummy to me.  I'd rather have fish for dinner.

46.  NIC'S BUSINESS 3 - Flowerlings in the ruins?
     Niccolo tried to catch the psychokinetic Flowerling to make himself
filthy rich, but it got away.  I wish I was psychic, because I would use
that power to write my diaries.

47.  NIC'S BUSINESS 4 - Showing Watt's how to make a sale.
     Watt's tried to make a new wallet just like his old one, but I
think he made a mistake somewhere.  Maybe it's the width, or maybe it's
the crooked edge.

48.  FINAL BUSINESS? - Show Kristie the ultimate deal!
     Niccolo lost his memories and then got them back.  My master didn't
tell me where and how they found the lost memories, so I guess it's top
secret.  I will keep my mouth shut.

49.  LI'L CACTUS - Li'l Cactus off to cure Bud?
     Finally I got to go on an adventure on my own.  Greenballs, Tako
bugs, I will never forget your smiles.  I feel like I saved the world
today.  Just feeling like that is enough for me.

50.  RACHEL - Rachel ran away from home!
     Rachel went to the witch of reincarnation and was turned into a
blue jiggly.  I wonder what kind of life the green wiggly was having,
but am I the only one thinking about this?

51.  NORDIC FIELD - From the ship to the snow...
     Faeries can be and can't be seen by people.  I guess seeing a
Faerie is just like dreaming.  Wait, do I actually see a dream?  Or is
it something that really happens?

52.  BURIED TREASURE - From the ship to the beach...
     Today my master bribed the Dudbears to get some treasure.  Oh, so
that's how the treasure-hunters get what they want.  I see.

53.  BLACKSMITHING - Learn how to hammer from Watts.
     There's a new room in the backyard workshop.  It's to make weapons
and armors for my master to be able to whack some more little monsters.
That's not nice.  We should all be friends.

54.  INSTRUMENTS 101 - Help a student make instruments.
     Now my master can make more instruments in the backyard workshop.
Wow, master is really learning how to pick on those monsters!

55.  GOLEM WORKSHOP - Take over Prof. Bomb's research.
     I can put some stuff together and make my own Golem!  My master
should add that to the resume for future job-hunting.

56.  MANA ORCHARDS - Weeds are all over your home.
     Mr. Grandpa tree is so big and scary, it makes me want to hide by
his roots.  His roots look like the best place to hide.

57.  MONSTER CORRAL - Find a fledgling in Domina.
     Now my master can bring back eggs of other animals to raise them as
pets!  I can't pet them because I'm all spikey, but humans will be okay
because they aren't spikey like me.

58.  SCHOOL AMOUR - Back to school for kids of Geo.
     They all didn't want to go back, but when my master talked to them
they decided to go back.  What did master say to them?  It must be magic.

59.  RESUME FOR LOVE - Can anyone re-fleshify Gilbert?
     Gilbert got to travel to a lot of places because he was a stone
statue and was sold to those many places.  Hey, I think he saved a lot
on travel expenses.

60.  PROF. BOMB - Search for Prof. Bomb's golem.
     There was a big chase to catch a pile of junk that ran away from a
professor.  How could a pile of junk run away on its own?  I don't think
I get it.  Master, you need a rest.

61.  WATTS'S HAMMER - Search for Watts's lost hammer!
     Watts lost his hammer, but my master found it for him.  Doesn't it
feel good to do good things?  It would be nice if master could read me a
story once in a while.  Please?

62.  SEVEN WISDOMS - Help Bud meet the six Wisdoms.
     The little boy got to find six of the Seven Wisdoms.  There are
only six Wisdoms?  Did they pick that name because it sounds good?
Maybe they can't do math.

63.  THE FIELD TRIP - Find reagents at the fortress.
     Picking up stuff from the ground, mixing them and making 'em go
boom!  Isn't that a little bit childish?  Didn't your mommy tell you not
to do things like that?

64.  CATCHIN' LILIPEAS - In search of the Lilipeas.
     I wonder how the Lilipeas sing songs about peas?  Peas!  Peas!  I'm
a teeny-beany pea!  Peas!  Peas!  I'm an itsy-bitsy pea!  This could be
a never-ending song.

65.  LOVE IS BLIND - Elle and Gilbert run away.
     My master went to the sea and tried sinking a ship by singing.  The
ship didn't sink, but if they really believed that the ship would sink
that way, I'd need to make them see a doctor.

66.  WIMPY THUGLING - Defeat Kima!

unknown.  Even after replacing a lost hand with a hook, pirates continue

hardness in one's heart.  If the core grows large, it may remain despite

What could be inside the urns you find in this story?

21.  PELLETS - Secondary Material

23.  POUCHES - Secondary Material

On the other hand, the items may be quite normal and plain.

___/ M.   Equipment        \____________________________________________

1.   KNIFE - 3 Quick Attacks
     A dagger.  It comes in many different styles, and much work goes
into crafting the handle and blade.  Most are designed to be practical.
A shield cannot be used with a knife.  Although it has the shortest
reach, the rate of movement is the fastest.

2.   SWORD - 3 Quick Attacks
     A long sword.  Most are double-edged and have sharp tips.  The
sword is considered a holy weapon due to the precious metals it is made
from.  Is is weilded in one hand, so the rate of movement is average.

3.   AXE - 3 Quick Attacks
     Also known as the hand-axe or hatchet, the axe is a single-bladed
weapon wielded in one hand.  Often thought of as primitive, the rate of
its movement is slower than the sword.

4.   2-HANDED SWORD - 3 Quick Attacks
     The ultimate in swords requires two hands.  Yields epic damage when
swung in a wide arc.  Cannot be used with a shield.  It's quite heavy,
so the rate of your movement is slower.

5.   2-HANDED AXE - 3 Quick Attacks
     The two-handed axe is used for embedding a cold piece of steel in
you enemies.  With an axe like this, who needs a shield?  Unfortunately,
the sheer weight of this weapon will slow your movement to a snail's

6.   HAMMER - 3 Quick Attacks
     Knock some sense into your opponents with this huge two-handed
hammer.  But don't complain about the slowest movement rate and being
unable to use a shield.

7.   SPEAR - 4 Quick Attacks
     A great way to keep uglies at a distance.  However, in actual
combat the spear is used in a variety of ways.  Of course, a shield is
out of the question, and the shape of the weapon precludes fast

8.   STAFF - 4 Quick Attacks
     Long staves such as these have multiple uses, and can hit an enemy
both up close and far away.  Since they require both hands, a shield
cannot be used, and the rate of movement is slower than when wielding a

9.   GLOVE - 5 Quick Attacks
     Nothing beats pummeling the enemy with these reinforced punching
gloves.  Of course, proper boxing stance precludes the use of a shield.
Even though the attack range is short, the rate of its movement is very

10.  FLAIL - 5 Quick Attacks
     Incredible power is gained when two or more staves are connected
with a chain.  The rate of its movement is quite good, but it is
impossible to use a shield while wielding a flail.

11.  BOW - 3 Quick Attacks
     With a bow, one can lay waste to enemies from afar, and thwack them
when up close, as well.  Scoring a direct hit, however, requires much
practice.  A shield cannot be equipped with a bow.

     The smart sword or axe-wielder will always keep a shield handy.
From large, bejeweled shields to the familiar frying-pan lid, shields
vary greatly in size and strength.

13.  HELM
     Providing ample protection for the head, helms come in all shapes
and sizes, from great steel helms to upside-down pots.  The round shape
of the helm helps deflect incoming blows.

14.  HAT
     Unlike helms, hats are often worn for the enchantments contained
within, rather than for physical defense.  They often grace the heads of
well-known mages and priests.

     There is a wide range of hauberk types, from highly-decorated
ceremonial hauberk to hauberk that is too heavy for practical use.

16.  ROBE
     Oft worn by mages and clergymen, robes are often designed for other
purposes than mere physical protection, and are decorated with holy
symbols or arcane patterns.

     Guantlets come in many shapes and sizes, but all of them help
protect the arms and hands from nasty cuts and bruises.

18.  RING
     Even a small ring can help protect the finger.  Some are plain,
while others are works of art, worn by those wise in the ways of magic.
Some rings are said to hold incredible power.

19.  BOOTS
     Heavy footwear for the combat enthusiast, boots give protection to
the feet, ankles, and shins from common nicks and scratches, where
needed most.

     Light footwear for the fashion-conscious warrior, sandals afford
less physical protection than boots, but they do seem to protect best
against magic.

21.  ARMOR
     Completely protecting the head, torso, arms, and legs, armor gives
outstanding protection.  However, very little additional armor can be
worn, because armor covers the whole body.

     Mantles are worn over the shoulders, and can be worn over any kind
of armor.  Most protect against magical attacks.

     An accessory that can be worn under all types of armor, pendants
are used for their protective properties.

24.  HARP
     Harps are stringed instruments that can be used to perform magic
with an Elemental Coin.  Such coins are gained by negotiating with a

     The marimba is a percussion instrument that can be used to play
magic with an Elemental Coin.  The cycles of magic are determined by the
type of instrument, its main material, and the property of the Elemental
Coin used.

26.  FLUTE
     The flute is a wind instrument which can be used to play magic by
using an Elemental Coin.  Elemental Coins are important because they
help determine the type and cycle of magic that will be played.

27.  DRUM
     The drum is a percussion instrument which can be used to play magic
with an Elemental Coin.  During negotiations with a Spirit, it is
important to play tunes that the Spirit enjoys listening to.

___/ P.   World History    \____________________________________________

     A twinkling consciousness became a star which sparkled in the night
and banished the darkness.  The Mana Goddess aquired consciousness by
gazing into the light of that sun.  She made Fa'Diel, a great land, but
so far an empty one.

     The Mana Goddess drew beams of six colors from the sun.  They
became the six moons, each hiding a small diety within.  When those gods
awoke, they played beautiful music and brought fortune to the land of

     The six dieties became the Moon Gods and demanded that the Mana
Goddess name them.  So the Mana Goddess gave each of them a shining
stone, which filled the air with music: "Stars, follow me!  Moons, walk
with me!  And we shall celebrate your names!"

     Tryne, merciful god of water.  Zea, passionate god of fire.
Barlen, selfish god of gold.  Libleyt, hopeful god of wood.  Morphes,
wealthy god of earth.  Ghazel, whimsical god of wind.  The Moon Gods
rejoiced, and the Mana Goddess returned to her slumber, becoming the
great Mana Tree.  Fa'Diel was left to the whims of the Moon Gods.

     The Moon Gods created land and ocean, trees and flowers, and gave
them light and the power to determine their fate.  The light became the
Elemental Spirits, riding in the sky.  They released bountiful light,
and were full of desire to serve the Moon Gods' will.  The Moon Gods
then finally returned to slumber.

     Then, a beautiful yet powerful beast appeared, awakening the Moon
Gods.  The Moon Gods named this beast of strength and beauty Flammy.
Whenever one of the Moon Gods would fall asleep, another Flammy would
appear.  Eventually, Flammies of all six colors came to populate all the

     The Moon Gods tried to outdo each other in creating beauty.
Sometimes they argued trying to follow the Mana Goddess's will and
create many beasts.  But dark clouds came to Fa'Diel, and the Moon Gods
created greater beasts, and set them loose upon the land.  The Flammies
often quarrelled, and the cycle of creation and destruction repeated

     The trees withered, and the Elemental Spirits lost their luster.
The land dried up, and soon thereafter, wars began.  As the wars dragged
on, the powers of the Moon Gods were lost.  The land of Fa'Diel was
scarred, and pits to other worlds opened in the wounds.  The Moon Gods
peeked into the other worlds, and came to know fear, envy, and desire.

     Cracks appeared in the Mana Tree.  Waves of chaos from other worlds
came and tried to envelop all of Fa'Diel.  Each Moon God chose a Flammy
and gave it a stone.  The Flammies rode into the sky.  They were born of
the earth to ride in the sky and return to the earth.  They became a
flying river of Mana.

     Fa'Diel was filled with the power of Mana.  It healed itself and
shut away the other worlds.  The Flammies returned to the Moon Gods, but
could not find them.  The Moon Gods had lost their memories and became
beasts.  The six remaining Flammies cried in anguish and despair.  The
waves in the air settled, and created many thought forms.

     The Flammies turned their backs on the Moon Gods and flew into the
air.  The Moon Gods turned into stars, and the Flammies never came back
down.  New concepts came about after the Flammies and the Moon Gods
departed, but the Elemental Spirits were afraid and prayed to the Mana
Tree, who responded with soft pulses.

     These formless beings will eventually be given form so that they
might live.  They will be given the task of creating this world.  The
thoughts they think will shape the landscape.  They will be born into
this world in fear and sadness.  Sometimes their thoughts may hurt this
world, but you must help them build it.

     Soon many new beings were born, such as men and Faeries.  Man used
Mana to power his creations.  Faeries amplified the power of Mana with
song and dance.  Then, from beyond the heavens, six colored beams of
light shone down upon the land.  Six Flammies gazed upon Fa'Diel, and
all life there prospered.  A new age had begun.

     The Flammies of legend never returned from their heavenly climb.
Below, many similar creatures came into being.  For example, dragons
reflected the Flammies' divinity, becoming a race of deep introspection.
They took it upon themselves to protect Fa'Diel from its many foes.

     Wyrms are rumored to be Flammies who have fallen into another
world.  Powerful mages summoned them into this world.  Wyrms possess the
incredible powers of the Flammies, but they lack their nobility and
grandeur.  True Flammies are said to appear regal and divine, unlike
dragons and wyrms, but no man can truthfully claim to have seen them.

     Humans were destined to reproduce and populate the land, and they
developed the technology to build.  Soon they gained dominance over all
physical things.  The humans who live in this world come in different
forms, but they are all humans.  Some inherit their forms from their
parents, while others are shaped through their experiences.

     Faeries have transparent wings, which are not used for flying, and
are shed during growth.  Only young Faeries are visible to humans, and
their bodies fade as time goes on.  Eventually, they become completely
invisible to the human eye.

     The Mana Tree sustained the bond between the world of humans and of
Faeries.  Plants exist in both the human and Faerie dimensions.  They
absorb the Mana of Fa'Diel and release it into the atmosphere.  Humans
use trees for fuel and tools, harnessing their power within inanimate
objects.  Faeries use the Mana released by plants to make Fa'Diel a
better place.

     Although not on par with the Faeries, all human could once harness
the power of Mana.  The ability to draw on the power of Mana was
originally given to all humans equally, but many lost that ability by
relying on machines, and losing touch with the natural world.  Later,
those with the power to draw Mana were called mages.

20.  ANISE
     The Great Witch Anise was the first mage to go down in history.
Anise bored a hole into the Mana Tree and built her laboratory there.
The flow of Mana into both human and Faerie worlds was diverted.  Anise
constructed a jewel called the Eye of Flame using the vast amounts of
Mana in her laboratory.  The Firestone brought out the evil in whoever
it touched.

     In the Age of Myth, the stones that the Mana Goddess gave to the
Moon Gods were the most powerful source of magic known.  However, some
powerful magic users born in later ages possessed similar stones.  Anise
tried to obtain such a stone when she created the Eye of Flame, but it
was difficult to control, and very dangerous.

     Soon, many others learned how to construct their own Eyes of Flame.
The waves of Mana became chaotic, and shadows clouded the hearts of man.
These pulses tore rifts within the dimensions and sent waves of evil
into the hearts of man.  No longer was all life on the planet descended
from the spirits.  An age had ended.  A world had fallen from its
original purity.

     Evil ruled the land thereafter through men who could control the
waves of chaos.  Those of truth cried in anguish, but mages, who
rejoiced in obtaining new powers, firmly believed that this was the
world they wanted.  The mages declared the beginning of a new thousand
year kingdom and called it the Aeon of Uraklius.

     Aion, the leader of the Faeries, sent an army to conquer Anise.
There, hundreds of Anise's mages battled thousands of Faerie warriors.
The battle was fought overnight, and almost all of the Faeries were
slain.  The few remaining Faeries continued their lives in the land of

    Although the Faeries thought that all humans were enemies, they soon
discovered that there were those in the land of men who could understand
the Faeries.  With the help of the humans, they were again able to
battle Anise and her mages.  Eventually they rose victorious.
Unfortunately, during the fight, the Mana Tree burned to the ground. 

     Although it was thought that many Eyes of Flame would be recovered
from the ashes, only three were found.  Aion was banished to the
Underworld.  He refused to be reincarnated, and became the Lord of the

     Aion, leader of the Faeries, created his new servants, the
Shadoles.  Shadoles were born from the thoughts of Aion, and they
brought the newly departed to the Underworld.  From this time on, all
departed souls are brought to the Underworld to receive the judgment of
its Lord.

     Anise was killed by a stone called the "Seventh Moon."  Legend has
it that the Faerie warrior who fought against Anise, a master of the Eye
of Flame in her own right, bested her using this mysterious object.

     After the Holy War of the Mana Tree, the flow of Mana to the world
resumed.  Before, mages would steal from others, using dangerous magic,
but now the land produced enough for all.  However, the surviving mages
could not stand being equal to their fellow creatures.  They sought
magic that could make everything their own.

     The mages started building towers at Mana Points all over Fa'Diel
in order to regain the Eyes of Flame.  They took action against the
Faeries, who stood in the way of their plans.  Whenever a tower was
built, an army would come to destroy it.  Such wars continued for
hundreds of years.  Soon, all of humanity came to think of Faeries as
evil beings.

     Elise, who called herself Anuella, was the daughter of Anise.  She
had the power to bring mundane objects to life.  After fleeing her
mother's self-righteous rule, she settled in the northern mountains and
there created a group of dolls who would obey her every command.  They
came to be called magical beings, and her art was promulgated by mages
who idolized her.

     There were two types of magical beings.  One type was imbued with
life.  Another type had hidden powers.  The latter were called
artifacts.  Artifacts had weaker magical powers than Eyes of Flame, but
were simpler to construct.  Creating Eyes of Flame was frought with
accidents, so making artifacts became the most popular kind of magic.

33.  ARGOT
     The king of dragons, Argot, destroyed all the mage towers in the
land of Faeries.  Argot opened a hole into the other worlds and called
forth many monsters.  However, records state that he eventually turned
to evil, and was banished by the Faeries.

     Argot summoned a wyrm in the shape of a Flammy.  He summoned
Lucemia, the Wyrm of Light, and the greatest of all the wyrms.  Legend
says that Lucemia leveled each and every mage tower, and died trying to
swallow an entire volcano.

     The Lilipeas are a small tribe that settled in the northern
mountains.  People said that they were similar to Anuella's dolls.  Only
Selva, who was tall and slim, oft visited Anuella by riding on a bird.
Selva often took Anuella's dolls outside.

     In a charcoal-maker's hut, a little girl awaited her father's
return.  Her name was Magnolia, and her father made a living from
hunting and from making charcoal.  Selva gave this girl one of Anuella's

     The doll that was brought into Magnolia's room had red stones as
its eyes.  They were Eyes of Flame that Anise made, and they burst into
flames and burned the hut to ashes.

     Magnolia lost her life in the hut as it burned down, but the doll
was saved.  The doll began to call herself Magnolia, and she stayed with
the Lilipeas, until one day she left with a mage.  The mage wanted to
steal the Eyes of Flame in Magnolia's eyes, for they contained more Mana
energy than the enchanted instruments.

39.  GAEUS
     Anuella saw through the mage's plot.  She left the northern
mountain, then gave life to a rocky hill so the mage's caravan could not
progress further.  The living hill called itself Gaeus, and its
knowledge seemed deeper, and more vast than Anuella's.  Anuella called
for Gaeus' help and prepared for war.

     All the Faeries fought on Anuella's side, using many enchanted
instruments.  The mage's force fell apart against the power of the
instruments with infinite Mana power.  Anuella came to be known as the
"Player of the Flying Contrabass," and as "the Conductor" among Faeries.

     Halciet the Mage was the last one who stood against Anuella.  He
used a stone called "the Seventh Moon" and fought against Anuella, but
the mages among his army began a quarrel over the stone's possession,
and Halciet left the force.

     The mages made a magic circle with the Eyes of Flame and summoned
the Wyrm of Thunder, Geimaswald, to attack Anuella.  But the Lilipeas
lured Geimaswald into a cave and killed it.  The leader of the Lilipeas
was Selva of the Four Winds.

     It became known to the mages that these instruments could be used
as weapons.  The mages took the remaining Eyes of Flame and the
instruments aquired in the previous battles and fled to the east.
There, the mages made instruments with more Mana power and dedicated
them to their new lord, Lonway.

     The mages provided Lonway with their magic, and urged him to
prepare for battle with the Faeries.  Lonway's army then progressed to
the ancient city of Mindas to open the gates to the land of Faeries.
Many nations used this as an excuse to start their own political

     Ricrot IV was supported by Anuella, and was given an army of wooden
horses that could fly in the sky to fight against Lonway and his mages.
He came to be known as the "King of Wooden Horses."  Many brave men
enlisted in Ricrot's army.

     Gato Grottoes were Fa'Diel's power nexus, protected by "the Spirits
of the Ascetics."  Many monks fought as soldiers, and the high priests
stopped enemies from other dimensions by sending their spirits to
battle.  Intense battles between the dimensions and other worlds took
place in Gato.

     Rosiotti was a hero who could pierce a warrior's chest with his
arrows from miles away.  It was anticipated that his bravery and skills
would change the war's outcome.  However, he only became Lonway's
general because Lonway promised him great rewards.

     In the midst of intense battles between Ricrot and Lonway's army,
Selva of the Four Winds brought his army of Lilipeas and Flowerlings to
fight on Ricrot's side.  Lonway then ordered Rosiotti to kill Selva.  No
one had ever escaped Rosiotti's arrows, and the chase was on.

49.  SELVA
     Selva kept commanding his army, while fleeing Rosiotti's never-
ending chase at the same time.  When Rosiotti finally shot Selva's heart
with his arrows, he was surrounded by countless Lilipeas.  It was then
that Rosiotti was told to become a Wisdom, to walk the same path with

     Nunuzac was Lonway's best and the most powerful summoner.  He
summoned Freymold, the Wyrm of Fire, as Lonway ordered him when the tide
of war began to turn against him.  Nunuzac kept summoning monsters until
Lonway was killed, and he himself became trapped in the dimension on the
other side of his magic circle.

     Another army to join the war was Aion's force of "Creatures of
Shadow" from the Underworld.  These "Creatures of Shadow," or the
Shadoles, caught and threw living people into the Underworld and trapped
them there.  Olbohn the Swordsman went down to the Underworld by himself
and defeated Aion.

     Freymold, the Wyrm that was summoned by Nunuzac, flew across
Fa'Diel and burned Rosiotti's jungle to ashes.  Rosiotti raged over this
event, and later joined Anuella's force.

     Lasdanac was the Holy Knight of Ricrot's army who was taught the
"Spell of Truth" by the Faeries.  With this spell, he defeated Freymold,
but it is told that he later fell to a Faerie's curse.

     After the war came to an end, Ricrot IV built churches and began
compiling "the Book of Divine Guidance."  He also established the
Academy of Magic with a portrait of the great witch, Anise, inside and
summoned her spirit to it.  Anuella was displeased by this event.

     The temples lost many of their monks and priests as they came under
Ricrot's rule.  All the male priests were taken and sent to the Academy
of Magic as magic researchers, to lessen resitance from the religious

     In the years following the war, Ricrot sent soldiers to capture and
kill off the surviving soldiers of Lonway's army, as well as the
Faeries, which he called "the Ones with Devilish Powers."  Anuella left
Ricrot and locked herself into a place named "the Graveyard of

     The seventh Mana Stone was desired for its Mana power, and it
appeared in history many times.  Jumis were the first ones to be
searched for the possession of the stone.  It is said that an
uncountable number of Jumis were hunted down and killed for this

58.  DIRT
     When Jumis were being hunted during the search for the seventh Mana
Stone, they died after intentionally lessening the energy flow in their
jewel cores.  Many Jumis died this way to protect the secret of their
clan, and mages began to call them "lumps of dirt" as a result.

     There was a new movement in the land of Faeries, as Zuf'ben became
their new leader.  The spiritual waves of the two worlds were becoming
magnified, and many expected the worlds to become one.  Zuf'ben lamented
over the humans' corruption, and called upon higher beings for help.
Angels answered his prayers.

60.  JANNA
     Angels were beings who serve the Goddess, and cannot normally be
seen by Faeries or humans.  Seven angels chose to reincarnate in the
land of Faeries, and they rode on Janna, a ship with its own

     In order to control the Janna, the angels decided to reincarnate
into Faeries and humans.  The reborn angels would lose their memories,
until Janna could awaken them.

     Zuf'ben rode Janna and searched both Fa'Diel and the land of
Faeries to find the seven angels, but humans attacked Janna, afraid of
the flying ship.  During the attack, the minds of those onboard the ship
were tainted with evil.

     The angels transmuted into their human and Faeries forms, but they
lost awareness of their true nature, because they could not sense
Janna's benevolence.  Some of the angels even joined the battle to gain
control of Janna.  Janna turned to evil, and villainous people gained
demands over her.

     Even though Janna had not awakened them, six of the seven angels
regained their memories.  One cried for a fallen friend, one confronted
Janna, one crossed swords with a former angel, one heard the guidance of
a Wisdom: "Six angels' memories were restored, but the seventh would
never awaken."

     In the dreams of the six angels, a seventh angel appeared.  But he
did not answer the calls of the others.  He was neither human nor
Faerie, but a Jumi.  Both humans and Faeries had used the Jumi to
strengthen their magic in the war.

     The angels gave up on retrieving Janna, and chose to fight for the
Jumi.  With help from the Wisdoms, they built a ship to confront Janna,
and joined the war.  The angels defeated the leader of the humans and
Zuf'ben, who had become an evil Faerie, and sealed Janna in the
dimensional gap.  Then they remained in Fa'Diel.

     As time went by, "the Rules for Peace" which Ricrot started changed
to "the Peace for Rule."  "The Book of Divine Guidance" was used to
propagate the empire's religious and political thoughts, and many
"heretics" were hunted down by the empire's army.

     Irzoile Enaanshalc was the fifteenth emperor of the Enaanshalc
Empire, and he was called the Deathbringer.  He was a descendant of
Ricrot Enaanshalc, a hero in the era of the Faerie War, but his
oppressive reign caused the empire's fall.

     The chivalric code, which Ricrot IV established, produced many
legendary heroes in a short time period.  Julio Liotte was the most
accomplished knight in the empire's army, and thus he was given the
title of "Holy Knight," and became the guardian of the empire.  The
Liotte family passed this title down the line.

     To commemorate the souls of heroes lost during the war, Ricrot IV
established shrines to the Mana Goddess, and closed down most of the
older temples aside from the one in Gato.  The Halloway family was a
line of priests, but under the rule of Ricrot's empire, its influence

     The clan of Windcallers could speak to and control the wind.  They
live quietly in a village by the base of Norn's Peak, and kept their
watchful eyes on any intruders that might disturb their way of life.

     Irzoile Enaanshalc desired immortality, and sent his army to
retrieve the Dragon Stones which the ancient dragons protected.  His
attempts failed, and he lost his life as a result.  But his overwhelming
desire for immortality made Jajara, the bone dragon, choose him to
become his dragoon.

___/ Q.   Basic Golemology \____________________________________________

     Q: What are the necessary components?
     A: A completed body and logic blocks.
     The body of the golem determines its power level, and the logic
blocks provides the action patters of the weapons it equips.

     Q: What makes up the golem's body?
     A: At least one weapon or piece of armor.
     A golem's body is made by combining a lifeball with one weapon and
up to three pieces of armor.  Its performance and characteristic
parameters reflect those of the materials.

     Q: What makes up a logic block?
     A: Two pieces of equipment.
     Choose two pieces of equipment from your list of armor, weapons, or
instruments.  Each block provides a certain action pattern for a golem.

     Q: What determines the size of the logic grid?
     A: The number of armor pieces used for the golem's body.
     The larger the grid, the more logic blocks it can hold, for a wider
variety of golem actions.

     Q: What determines a logic block's type?
     A: The combination of its components.
     Try different equipment combinations to create blocks you want for
desired action patterns of your golem!

     Q: What determines a logic block's shape?
     A: The combination of its components.
     All logic blocks have one of eleven shapes, and each block's
effectiveness derives from the components' parameters.

     Q: What determines the golem's attack mode?
     A: The type of the weapon used for the golem's body.
     Some blocks cannot be assigned to a golem if the block's attack
type differs from the golem's attack type.

     Q: What determines golem attack and defense levels?
     A: The characteristics of the weapons and armor used.
     Golem parameters such as HP, attack and defense, and elemental
levels, are determined by the components used to make its body.  This
does not include logic grid size and rate of malfunction.

     Q: How is the malfunction rate determined?
     A: The number of armor pieces used as components.
     The higher the percentage shown on the menu screen, the more
frequently golem fails to deliver an attack.  If one action fails,
actions connected by wedge-marks also fail to deliver.

     Q: How does a golem decide which action to take?
     A: By referring to its action gauge and calculating the distance to
the enemy.
     The logic grid has two axes.  One is the action gauge, and the
other is the distance between the golem and the enemy.

___/ S.   Forbidden Tome   \____________________________________________

     Yes = Normal Mode
     No  = see 2.

     Yes = Nightmare Mode
     No  = see 3.

     No  = No Future Mode
     ... = no change

Simply put, these are the game's difficulty settings and are only
available after completing it and restarting from the defeated save
data.  Descriptions follow.

     This is the default setting.  Most players find there isn't much of
a challenge with this setting.  Battles, including bosses, are
relatively easy.  This mode is for people who don't really like battles
and play more for substance and/or speed.

     This is the HARD difficulty setting.  Battles will be drawn out
quite a bit more as the monsters have all been pumped-up a decent
amount.  Each monster, including bosses, will be approximately twenty to
forty levels higher than they previously were, complete with increased
stats and Hit Points.  Definately for people who like to fight.

     Not for the faint of heart.  This mode pits the player against
extreme battle situations.  All monsters, including bosses, will be
maxed-out at level ninety-nine (though spirit incompatability may reduce
this a bit), complete with increased stats and Hit Points.  And you
thought Nightmare Mode was hard.  You ain't seen nothing until you've
been up against Rabites from hell.  *grins*

I'm a big Seiken Densetsu fan. I've loved the series since back before I
knew its real name, when it began as `Final Fantasy Adventure` on the
Gameboy.  And I would have to say that `Secret of Mana` (SD2) is
probably the most played game I own.  To me it never gets old.  So I
figured I'd thank the Square staff for once again putting together a
great game.  Granted I wish this game had better multi-player support
(like SD2 & SD3) and that SD3 would have made it world-wide, I can at
least hope Square will give us an SD Anthology.  Please?  PLEASE?!
*ahem*  Anyway, I'll wrap this up here, considering there's really
