Before E-Mailing me:

I'm not looking for submissions at this point.  Thanks, but no thanks.

I don't check my E-Mail too often (as in, months go by without me checking it.)
So if you send me any, don't be upset or disappointed because you don't receive
a reply from me in a day, a week, or even a month.  I've been online since 1996
and while E-Mail might be the best thing since sliced bread for someone who had
grown up in the '50s, it's just yesterday's fad for me.

Introduction
------------

Due to the lack of this type of information available in guides both on the web
and in the official Strategy Guide from Prima (so I hear on the messageboard, I
haven't had the chance to check out their guide myself) I've decided to write a
small FAQ myself.

I decided not to write a complete walkthrough for this game because I feel that
one of the most enjoyable aspects of this game are all the unpredictable things
that happen to you on your quest, and to write a good walkthrough, I would need
to spoil some of those things.  This is something I didn't want to do...

The game is rather easy anyway, as it's very linear compared to most RPGs.  You
don't often end up wandering around trying to figure out where you are supposed
to go to continue the main quest; the only time you're likely unsure about what
you're supposed to do is when dealing with the few sidequest.  That is why I've
including information on these as well.

I've tried to keep this guide spoiler-free, but there's always a risk of seeing
something that you might want to keep secret, so if you'd rather not know where
to go to find certain objects, or the names of characters or monsters, then use
caution while reading this FAQ.

*******************************************************************************
************************** 6. Monster Classification **************************
*******************************************************************************

Notes:

1. Monster Experience changes based on your character's level.  The higher your
   level is, the less experience you get from a monster.  General rule of thumb
   is the farther location you're at, the more experience you'll get.

2. Hit Points are not listed because the only way to get the exact number is to
   keep fighting the same monster over and over until you can guess at what the
   amount is, or by using the Black Cat Jewel on a monster and then double what
   damage you do.  Both methods would take way too much time, way more than I'm
   willing to spend.  :D

3. Once I got to the final dungeon, I noticed that one of the monsters I fought
   had given me two different types of items...  I'm guessing that monsters can
   give out both a normal and a rare item.  I did not look for the second item,
   it was taking too long.  Some monsters I couldn't even find when I went back
   to get their item or Sukel amount (such as Peaceful Hippo.)  Maybe I'll have
   this information in a future update.

The Man in Love with Miss Madril
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the port town of Rashelo, there's a man who is desperately in love with Miss
Madril, a resident of the town of Madril.  To help him, you must first obtain 4
items that are mostly in treasure chests scattered across Rumille Plains.

Grab the following items from the chests:

Chic Suspenders  : Essential to allow you to show off your chic taste.
Cholesterol      : Scary product inviting you to the world of fat.
Punk Wig         : Wig that creates great punk hair.

Head into the Rashelo Restaurant to obtain the final item from a boy sitting at
one of the tables:

Shiny Lens       : Gaze of your passionate eyes holds damsels in thrall.

Head back to the man and stand infront of him.  Open your menu and go into your
item screen.  Use each of the four items on him.  He'll thank you and then tell
you that he's not very good at talking to woman.  Go back to the restaurant and
talk to a man that should be wandering around in there.  You'll then have three
choices of things you can say to him.  Ask him how to sweet talk woman.

Return to the man in love with Miss Madril, and tell him what the man inside of
the restaurant told you.  He'll scoot off to talk to her.  Leave Rashelo and go
back to Madril.  On the upper level of the town, you'll find the man inside her
house, and if you talk to him, he'll give you a present for your help:

1st Star Badge   : A few rays from a lucky star.         Evade Attacks & Spells

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Message in a Bottle
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you complete the Aquatic Ruins, you can begin this rather simple quest to
obtain a nice useful item.  Once you finish that dungeon and can continue along
your way, run to the lighthouse in Rashelo and take a peek in the door.  You'll
obtain an item:

Letter Bottle    : May be good to stick a letter in and throw it.

Then head to the coast North of the circus in Rumille Plains.  You'll encounter
a man who'll help you write a message (any message will do) and then toss it in
the river.  Run all the way to the beach on the Eastern side of Rumille Plains.
You should find the letter bottle there again.  Bring it back to the man on the
coast, and he'll toss it in again.  Repeat this process three times, and you'll
find a message from a girl in Tenel.

Head back to Tenel, and go to the Elder's house.  Run upstairs and enter a door
that was previously inaccessable.  A girl will be in there, and she'll give you
a special item:

Hand Knit Cap    : Filled with grandchild's love of the Elder      All Attr. +1

************************ 8. Frequently Asked Questions ************************
*******************************************************************************

Q: What is the highest level you can get your character to?

A: I've personally raised Ari's level to 99, but I only raised the other people
   to level 65.  I'm assuming that they can only go as far as 99 as well.

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

Q: Where can I use the Forgotten Sword to open doors?

A: There are three different locations where you can find these doors:

   Three doors in Big Tree Hole.
   One door in Escapeless Abyss.
   One door in the Sealed Cave.

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

Q: Where do I find the end of the "The Tortoise and the Pebble" story?

A: There is no ending.  You start hearing the story from the man in Pospos Spa,
   and once you hear the beginning, you can go to several people all across the
   land to hear them each tell you the next part of the story.  If you've heard
   the final part (part 3) then they'll keep repeating the last part, and never
   move onto the punchline.  You can even talk to the man three times in a row,
   and he'll tell you the next part of the story (you don't have to hunt down a
   whole bunch of people to hear the story, as originally thought...)

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

Q: Why is there no ending to the story?  Did they forget to put it in the game?

A: Nope, there is no ending because the final boss of the game 'erased' it from
   people's memory.  If you return to talk to the Gear-Man after he's given you
   the sword for your TinyGears, he'll reveal that he is the one that wrote the
   story.  He says that he spread the story to make fun of a man, but when this
   man heard the story, he didn't like it and 'erased' the punchline.  But it's
   still 'classified' as a 'joke' so people laugh even without knowing the end.

   He doesn't explicitly say that the man is the final boss of the game, but if
   you put two and two together (place the final boss in the roll of the mother
   tortoise, you-know-who in the place of the baby tortoise and the pebble that
   he tried to pass off as his child) you'll come to the same conclusion I did.

******************************* 9. Final Notes ********************************
*******************************************************************************

I'm missing a few items, mostly due to the fact that in a later chapter, you'll
be able to obtain a special item based on who you favored earlier when asked to
make a response.  I favored Rosalyn the most, so I got her special weapon.

I have no plans on playing through again, atleast for a very long time.  I just
spent over a week on it (38 in-game hours - excluding times when I had to reset
because I was typing this up and the game's clock kept running, even if paused)
and I'm totally burned out on it.  I guess it's the FAQ-writer's curse.  :D
