This is my first ever faq written and I am happy it is for this game. As for a lot of people this game took me by surprise. I think this is the funnest game I have played since Final Fantasy 7. This game has it's own unique battle and ability system. You start out going with the flow of the game and then end up on your own. Another fun aspect to this game is that you have to search for pieces of the your map of Pandule. The ability system is pretty straight foreward. You start out with one or two abilities and go from there. You gain abiliteis by using them in battle. Every Character has there own abilities and magic. I decided to write this faq because the only one I have seen is for the Japanese version of the game. I really hope you enjoy. =============================================================================================== ii.Story(from the manual) The island of Pandule, country of sun, sea, and freedom, is a virtual 'Garden of Eden'. A lone island surrounded by perilous seas, it boasts abundeant natural resources and has no neighbors to present the treat of war. Those who set foot on this island never want to leave, and in fact, no one of any visitors who have gone home. One day a letter from Pandule arrived at the home of a young man. It was from the Lord Xelpherpolis, ruler of Pandule. He wanted our hero to compose a song for his wedding celebration five days hence. Thus, the young composer shed his less respectable identity for a while and set out for the legendary Pandule. =============================================================================================== I.Characters Mouse- A traveling minstrel, Mouse has a secret life as a thief, which he assumes occasionally in his travels throughout many lands.
