    1. INTRODUCTION
    
    
    
    The Snowfly Forest part of Vagrant Story sucks. I know it, and you know it.
    I've spent _more_ than enough time trying to figure out how to get through
    the damn maze, and what to do, and where to go. Well, after days and days
    of trying to figure out the damn thing, I finally got through it, and 
    boy was I a happy camper. So I decided to whip this short (but hopefully
    detailed) walkthrough for the Snowfly Forest itself. I have also included
    a ASCII art map to help you with it.
    
    NOTE: The numbers on the map represent the order you should visit areas
          so that you can successfully navigate the Snowfly Forest. #1 is where
          you start, and #18 is where you will (or should) end up. You
          do not have to go this way, but it was the only way out of this
          _maze_ of a forest. Enjoy!

    6. Snowfly Forest Walkthrough
    
    
    
    When you first start out in the now-infamous Snowfly Forest in Vagrant Story,
    it may seem a bit intimidating at first (and it should!). You'll begin
    this annoying quest in the Faerie Circle. Head forward until you reach the
    #5 spot on the map, which is Traces of the Beast. Once here, go right (west
    I think), and into the next area.
    
    
    The next area is Fluttering Hope. Now go left and into the #7 area on the 
    map, which is Return to the Land, and you will fight the Dragon boss. Some
    tips to defeat him:
    
    - Equip some kind of Earth Protection so that his breath attack won't harm
      you as much
    - Aim for his Head or Neck area for the best results
    - Just use Chain attacks and combos for an easy victory
    
    
    Okay, once you've beat him, you'll get:
    - Aero Guard 
    - Bronze Key
    - Potion
    
    
    Now leave, use your Compass to see what direction you are going. You need
    to go SOUTH through the Forest until you reach the area called The Spirit
    Trees. When you are here, leave the area to the NORTH so you get to the
    area called They Also Feed, (#9 on the Map). Once there, go left (west)
    so you enter the area called The Yellow Wood (#10 on the map). Now
    take another left and go into the Where Soft Rain Fell area (#11 on the
    map). 
    
    
    After passing through this region, you will be in a big area, #12 on the
    map, The Forest River. Kill the knights here, then head across the river 
    ahead of you and search the chest to find:
    
    - Sylphid Ring
    - Chain Armor
    - Shield
    - Night Killer
    - Knuckle Guard
    - Acolytes Nostrum (x3)
    
    Take anything you need, then go left and into Lamenting of the Moon (#13 on
    my map). Continue forward until you reach #14 on my map, Running with the
    Wolves. Go right from here into the next area, #15. This is You Are The Prey
    area. Take another left from here and into The Secret Path, run through
    it, and continue forward until you reach Hewn From Nature. You will fight
    some bosses here: Dark Crusader and Grissom. Some helpful Tips:
    
    - Take out Dark Crusader (the monster) first. Use plenty of chain attacks
    - Attack his legs and body to do the most damage
    - Attack Grissom after taking care of the monster (Dark Crusader)
    - Concentrate on Grissom's head the most: This will kill him faster
    - Use a few Break Arts on him if you can, if you have a chance to
    
    
    When you defeat Dark Crusader, you will recieve:
    - 1 Spell
    - Elixer of Queens
    - Grimoire Deteriorer
    
    When you defeat Grissom, you will get:
    - 2 Spells
    - Shillelagh
    
    
    Once they are done for, leave this area (#17), and continue forward to the
    next area: Wood Gate, #18 on the map. This concludes the Snowfly Forest 
    walkthrough, and good luck with the rest of the game! (You'll need it!!!)
