				    VERSION 12

Welcome to my "Tales of Fandom" walkthrough!

Okay just some extra stuff: as always, in walkthroughs,
there are some little spoilers, so, just, keep that in mind.
If you see any "Insert Here Laterís", that means, Iíll be 
describing whatever it is in later editions. And if you 
see any "(Something)"s, it means it's in Japanese, and I'll
try to translate it in later editions, but it probably won't
be very good.

If you need to contact me do any/either of these things,
because I don't give out my e-mail adress:

1. Go to www.gamefaqs.com and ask for "ClesStahn" 
at the "Tales of Fandom Vol. 1" Playstation Message Board.
2. Go to Tales Central , located at http://www.tales-central.com,
and post a message on the Message Board.

human age.

What Future editions will have:
1. Iíll go in depth more on describing the "Craymel"

2. Iíll fix the "Insert Here Later"s.

3. Other bits and pieces.

4. Iíll put in who is in which "Kaodora" story.

5. I'll describe the characters, like, when theyíre in this 
game, etc.

6. I'll tell what each Craymel does in "Two-Player Craymel
Lab" mode.



All right, on the main menu, there are five choices:

"Craymel Lab"



The "Kaoventure" is this thing where you pick out of "Lilith", 
"Keel", and this other option at the top, and it does a little
story mode. During the story, you answer questions, and there's
this little bar at the bottom that either goes up or down. 
When I type the story out, I'm gonna type out whichever version
it is where you pick the top choices ONLY. Hey, I don't have time
to explore EACH and EVERY little aspect of the story. At least, 
not until I get, like, EVERY other part of this Walkthrough done.
And pressing "Start" during the Venture at any time will bring
up a menu where you choose out of "Continue game", "Save", or "Quit".

(a) (Something): Choosing this option brings you to a screen, 
and you pick the name "Amy", which is Chester's little sister.
Other choices may show up later, I dunno, I'll of course put
them in here if they do. Then, you choose out of "Load old game",
"or "New game". The story starts at the "Barklight" house, Amy and
Chester talk for a a while, about what seems to be Cless, Amy and
Chester's Parents, and the town they live in, which is called "Totus".
Next, it cuts to the town, and it's in the past, because it's Chester
and Amy reminiscing. There's two men talking, and I think the one 
on the right MAY be Amy and Chester's Dad. Anyways, Chester and 
Amy show up after the two men get done talking, and they're 
little kids! The elderly fellow asks a question, and there are 
four answers to choose from. Cless shows up ater a  few minutes 
later (as a little kid too, of course) they talk for a little bit,
then it cuts back to the Barklight's house, and the old man is there
with young Chester and Amy. He leaves after a while, and it goes 
back to normal age Chester and Amy talking to each other. Later, 
it cuts to young Cless and Amy on a bridge, and you pick out of 
three choices, but I don't know what they say. After that, Amy 
apparently has a fish, and it slips away. Cless goes after it,
and finally catches it, but falls in the river and gets a lobster
on his head ^_^. Cless finally gets it off, and Amy and Cless start 
laughing. Chester comes along, and is (I think) trying to protect 
Amy, and you get a choice of three statements again.....(FINISH LATER!)

(b) From what I can tell, Lilith:

Knows everybody in town.

it's after ***SPOILER FOR TALES OF DESTINY*** the Eye of Atamoni,
blows up, Dymlos gets thrown, and she finds him, and is trying to
find a way to repair him.

When you're at the first part; trying to wake up Stahn, it doesn't
matter which choices you choose. Just keep choosing differet ones.


First of all to win Farah, you have to answer correctly to the 
three questions of the maid. 
The answers are: 

1) Tamanegi / 2nd choice
2) Rice / 3rd choice
3) Tamago/ 2nd choice 

After that, you have to choose "Tomato" in the shop (1st choice) 
and tell Dymlos to come back home (3rd choice) in order to take 
Grandfather Bob's tomatoes. If you chose to search special tomatoes
all around the world you *won't* be able to beat Farah. 

The cooking contest ingredients are: 
1) Tamanegi / 2nd choice
2) Grandfather Bob's Tomato / 2nd choice
3) Pasta / 1st choice
4) Ika  / 3rd choice

After this cooking contest you will have to fight Cless. 

To evade Kuhazan you have to jump (3rd choice). 

When Cless tries to hit you in the air, you have to defend 
yourself by choosing "down" (1st choice).

When Cless attacks you frontally, defend yourself by using the
2nd choice. 

Every one of Lilith's skills are good. Even if Cless misses you in
an attack, at the end of the battle Dymlos will help you in fight.
You will have to choose the special super skill: "Thunder-sword" which 
is the fourth choice. Congratulations, You won! Dymlos will
become a real sword once again. Lilith will give it as a
birthday present to her brother Stahn and Stahn will give
him a new name: S.D.; that stands for "Stahn Dymlos". 

(c) (Insert Keele's Story Here)



The "Kaodora" is where you watch a bunch of scenes with the
"Tales of Eternia" characters on a stage talking. You choose
out of:

Top Menu

(a) "Play Mode", is where you choose out of "Skit Allstars",
and you pick out of Mint, Klarth, Arche, Leon, Rutee, and 
Chelsea. I havenít un-locked these yet, so I donít know 
what they do. "Play Mode" ALSO has something called 
"Tales Wave", where you pick out of  "(something) Keel!",
"Farah Heroin", (Insert Here Later), (Insert Here Later), 
"(something) Keel (little song-note here)", and "Van

 (b) "Edit Mode" is where you can make a little scene with
a character. you have to play around with it a bit, and 
it helps if you know one of the Japanese Alphabets called 

 (c) "Online", Essentially there is a device lets games that 
support it be played online via an iMode compatible cell 
phone. The pictures showed one end of the device plugged 
into controller port 2 and the other end plugged into the
bottom of a cell phone. It looks like this device can only 
be used with Japanese cell phone services and is therefore 
unavailable to importers even if they import the device. 
A site also mentioned that use of the device would result in
a fee per certain amount of data that is transferred
over the connection.

(d) "Top Menu" means return to the menu before this.


The "Craymel Lab" is the Tetris-like game, and you can
pick out of:

(a) "Scenario Mode" where you choose a character,
(you pick out of Rid, Farah, Rutee, Stahn, Cless, Mint,
and Two hidden characters, (***spoiler*** the secret 
characters are Leon and Klarth) and they go around, and
talk to different characters, (usually from their own game)
and you beat them doing their own puzzles. Some are hard, 
and some are easy! A good tip (thanks to "bungiefan" is:

1 for color 1 and 2 for color 2. * means anything.


Then clear color 1 at the bottom of the pile and all of the
same numbered colors will line up. All you have to do is
make sure that they are the right pieces to cause a reaction
for all of the colors at once. Just make it so that for the
pieces, except for the 1s at the bottom, that the pieces on
the right are hollow circles and the pieces on the left are 
solid circles or something like that.

Rutee's Scenario Mode:
   1. Rutee Vs. Stahn / Make a 5-piece suction
   2. Rutee Vs. Lilith / Fill the spaces enclosed by flashing

   4. Rutee Vs. Leon / Fill the spaces enclosed by flashing
lines with green pieces without making a suction
   5. Rutee Vs. Marian / Make a two-part chain in one turn,

    5. Farah Vs. Rid / Fill the area enclosed with flashing lines with

    2. Stahn Vs. Efreet / Do not make a red suction for 50 turns
    3. Stahn Vs. Celsius / Make a four part chain in one turn
    4. Stahn Vs. Leon / Fill the spaces enclosed by flashing

    4. Stahn Vs. Rutee / Fill the spaces enclosed by flashing

    4. Cless Vs. Mirald / Keep pieces under the flashing line for
50 turns
    5. Cless Vs. Mint / Make a red suction, a green suction, and a

Rid's Scenario Mode:
    1. Rid Vs. Keel / Do not make a blue suction for 50 turns.
    2. Rid Vs. Meredy / Make a 20-piece suction, and then make
a three- part chain in one turn. Or, do the chain first, it

and a green suction in one turn.
    4. Rid Vs. Ras/Reis / Make a 30-piece suction

fours colors at once. (I've never, ever, EVER beaten this, so I can't
possibly know the rest of his scenario's)
    3. Klarth Vs. (Insert here later)
    4. Klarth Vs. (I don't know who you face, and "bungiefan" can't
remember, but thanks to him for the info) Has the time limit and 
wants you to link 30 pieces of the same color together and then clear
them in addition to doing a 4 step reaction. You don't have to do

    5. Leon Vs. Lilith / Go 5 turns without making a yellow suction

(b) In "Two-Player" mode, you and your friend pick a 
character, and go head-to-head. Different characters have
different Craymels. Say, I got rid of a LOT of red blocks,
(it counts them on the side) once I get enough, Efreet will
come out, and do some stuff to my opponent. Different Craymels
do different things, and different characters have different
Craymels, which do different things:

Efreet:  \
Sylph:    \
Gnome:     \
Undine:     \
Shadow:      > (Insert Here Later)
Celsius:    /
Volt:      / 
Shadow:   /
Luna :   /

(c) Then, there's "Score Attack Mode" where you play one 
player, and you pick out of the usual characters, and 
then, you pick out of

"1 Minute Mode"
"3 Minute Mode"
"10 Minute Mode"
"10 minute Mode where the blocks come down REALLY fast."
And, on THIS one whenever you summon a Craymel from getting
rid of blocks, you get 3000 Points. And you just keep trying
to beat your old scores. and if you figure out how to play
online at www.talesweb.com , TELL ME, lol.

(d) There's "Ranking" where you choose out of which minute
game, and look at the scores.

(e) Lastly, there's "Online", Essentially there is a device
lets games that support it be played online via an iMode
compatible cell phone. The pictures showed one end of the
device plugged into controller port 2 and the other end 
plugged into the bottom of a cell phone. It looks like this
device can only be used with Japanese cell phone services 
and is therefore unavailable to importers even if they 
import the device. A site also mentioned that use of the 
device would result in a fee per certain amount of data 
that is transferred over the connection.

The "Options" has <insert here later>


"Gallery" has some SWEET pictures of "Tales of.." characters,
and stuff. It's got some Orginal designs, aw man, it's cool! 
Some of the characters look really DIFFERENT! To unlock all
the pictures (This is for "Score Attack Mode", not 
"Scenario Mode"):

1st box- It's on the beginning of the game, you don't have to do

2nd box- Play and win 1 minute mode 

3rd box- Play and win 3 minutes mode 

4th box- Play and win 10 minutes mode 

5th box- Play and win 10 minutes with extra-speed mode 

6th box- Make 2 or more chains 

7th box- Make 3 or more chains 

8th box- Make 4 or more chains 

9th box- Make 5 or more chains 

10th box- Make 6 or more chains 

11th box- Make 7 or more chains

12th box- Make 10 or more simultaneous suctions 

13th box- Make 20 or more simultaneous suctions 

14th box- Make 30 or more simultaneous suctions 

15th box- Make 40 or more simultaneous suctions 

16th box- Summon Sekundes or Maxwell during the game. 
Remember that some characters have Secondos and other Maxwell
(Rid, Stahn and Leon can only summon Maxwell). To summon Maxwell
or Sekundes, you have to fill every "Craymel Cage" in one time. 
To do this, I suggest you to fill cage nearly to the maximum of
every element and, after that, make a chain with 4 colors. You
will sure to be able to summon Sekundes or Maxwell, depending
on who you chose.
