==============
 Version 0.2 : 
  Added missions 7 & 8, faq section + some aftermaths and mission objectives.

II Why I wrote this guide:
==========================
Don't ask why I even bother writing a guide for this game, but whatever...
I ONLY wrote this guide because there was no other guide for this game on 
the web at the time of writing, AND I was bored. Although after writing the 
start of this guide (Missions 1-5) me and my friend got even more bored. 
I'll make a guide for rest of the missions(and edit the current ones)later, 
although I don't know when. You don't like this guide? Well since you are 
reading this, I suppose you have the game and need some help with completing 
it. So...don't complain.

At timed missions: fast and furious, and non-timed missions: 
patient and distant from enemies, and for both: mobile, try to avoid getting 
hit by the enemies and do try to heal as often as possible, BUT don't eat an 
animal if you don't need to; save it for later(although on some missions the 
animals keep reappearing, and on some, they might disappear).

Health given by animals:
========================
Cow           : 25 points + soul
Orc on animal : 15 points + mana
Pig           : 15 points
Sheep         : 15 points

==============================================================================
Introduction: 

Cael hangs upside down in the huge Zeenium factory. One of the last dragons to
be processed today. As he approaches the pit, however, his mind is transported
far away to the ancient Dragon proving grounds. Strange voices promise him 
power and freedom if learns quickly,- and survives.
==============================================================================
Easy. Just do as you are told. But take care not to get hit by mines when you 
test the air element, the race. Shoot the mines away and you should be fine 
really.¤
==============================================================================
Aftermath: 

Cael's test is over and the strange land fades into shadow. The voices that 
coached Cael buzz excitedly around him. They are Sprites, ancient allies of 
the dragons, and they have plans for him. 
==============================================================================

==============================================================================
Level 2 - The Awakening
==============================================================================
Mission Objectives:

- Destroy the Zeenium factory
- Find the dark key and fly into the dark ward
- Free Adara from the Orcs
==============================================================================
Introduction:

A strange energy wakens Cael moments before his death, much to the horror of 
the Orcs. He is the first Dragon slave in a thousand years to breathe fire 
and must use his newfound power to fight his way out of the Desmuran Ty 
compund.
==============================================================================
Quick way:
Destroy building in front of you^, go to the right towards dark(purple) ward,
destroy big building to left of ward, pick up purple key ^, go through ward, 
ignore everything, continue till you see a wagon protected by two mages
(with fire-balls), destroy wagon ^.
============================================================================== 

 
Longer explanation: 
This was how it was written at first. I keep it anyhow since it might answer 
some questions for others things then the first level...?

The first thing you should do is to destroy the large building in front of 
you. It contains a fire sphere, that will temporarely boost your fire element
for the rest of this level. When you've destroyed the building, you can try 
to eat some Orcs to replenish the Mana you've lost, if they have not already 
escaped. If they have escaped, you could just wait and your Mana will
replenish itself as long as you don't use it. Of course, in this case you
could just fly to the building up in the north, and pick up the fire sphere
on top of the building to replenish some of your Mana. When you grab the 
sphere, press the R3 button. This will make you hover over the tower. 
To the right there is another tower fireing at you. But since you're at the
top of the tower where you got the fire sphere, you're out of its range.
Now, let's introduce a new rule; if something or someone fires at you, 
destroy it or avoid it. After a while the fire sphere will reappear, 
it won't give you a temporarely boost this time, but it will replenish 
your Mana. (This means that you get a temporarely boost for the rest of the 
level, whenever you pick up a fire sphere on a location you have not 
previously picked up a fire sphere. The same rule applies for all elemental
spheres at all levels.) Then you should eat some cows, as they will 
replenish your health and you will absorb their soul. After you have 
absorbed five cow-souls, you can trade them for a Fury Attack at the shrine. 
There is one very close to you. After a while the cows will reappear. 
(This means you can get yet another Fury Attack). Return to the start and go
east. Find the Orc's encampment, destroy the main building, grab the key, and 
fly through the purple area. Ignore the Orcs and the wagons, there are only 
pigs in those. When you get through, eat the mages, and destroy the wagon.
==============================================================================
Aftermath:

Desmuran Ty is burning, and it's time to leave before Orc 
reinforcements arrive. Cael is free..., for the moment. With his new
ally, Adara, he will make his former masters burn for their crimes!
==============================================================================

==============================================================================
Level 3 - Scramble
==============================================================================
Introduction:

Adara may be pushy, but she's a useful ally. She spotted a number of 
Orc wagons fleeing the factory with Dragon Eggs. Cael must stop the 
wagons before they escape, while Adara collects the eggs for 
safekeeping.
==============================================================================
Mission Objectives:

- 10 wagons carry Dragon eggs. Destroy them before they escape.
==============================================================================
This is a timed mission, so hurry up¤. Destroy the wagon behind you at the 
start^. (Please make a note of the seriously ugly music here)
Fly over the water to the left. Destroy the wagon^. Enter the camp and destroy
the second building~ to the left. Pick up the water sphere, then pass through 
the water ward. Now, if you look at the radar, you'll see the wagons indicated
as yellow arrows. Just follow them, and destroy them quickly^. You don't have 
much time to fool around¤. Also, there appears to be more than the 10 wagons 
mentioned in the mission objectives(?)¤.
==============================================================================
Aftermath:

After collecting the eggs, Adara hid them until she and Cael could 
find a lair to keep them safe. High Draconia is nearby and this 
ancient Dragon home may be just what they need.
==============================================================================

==============================================================================
Level 4 - The Cleansing
==============================================================================
Introduction:
Cael has found the Bonelands, but Orcs have settled nearby. The lair
will never be safe with them this close, so it's time to do a little
housecleaning. Destroy the three outposts to eradicate 
the Orc infestation.
==============================================================================
Mission Objectives:

- Destroy the 3 Orc outposts.
==============================================================================
There are three outposts(:D)¤, and if you look at your radar, surely enough 
there are three yellow arrows. This is a destroy and survive mission. Destroy
the three outposts and survive. You should use your Fury Attack to the 
destroy the outposts. This will remove about 60-70% of the outpost depending
on the element you have. Do not understimate the power of the enemy 
(Nor the power of Playstation - The third place). I will STRONGLY advice you 
to pick up an air sphere~, since the outposts have air wards around them. 
This will at a high pace remove first your Mana then your life. There is an 
air sphere in one of the outposts. Choose the quickest route to it, spending 
as little time as possible inside the ward without the sphere. Destroy the 
outpost^ using the rage attack, and make your ay to the next outpost. 
Adara remebers something about a shrine beeing around here. You will now get
a pink arrow, follow this to find a shrine. Eat 10 cows, then when you enter 
the shrine you will get two Fury Attacks. Now destroy that outpost^! When you 
see the commander, quickly evade his attacks or dispose of him quickly~. 
Go back to the shrine and restock your life, Mana and Fury Attacks. 
Then go and destroy the last outpost ^.
==============================================================================
Aftermath:

With the foothils clean of Orcs, Cael headed into the mountains to 
his new lair. Life is good and Adara has gone to recover the Dragon
eggs from their hiding place.
==============================================================================

==============================================================================
Level 5 - Homecoming
==============================================================================
Introduction:

Adara was ambushed on the way to the lair and the eggs were 
scattered. She'll mark any egg she finds for Cael to carry back to the
nest, but he must hurry. Greedy Orc wagons and hungry Orc
Captains are on the way.
==============================================================================
Mission Objectives:

- Deliver 4 Gragon Eggs to the lair.
- Defend all Dragon Eggs from Orc attackers.
- Kill the 5 Orc Captains.
==============================================================================
It's very important that you make sure none of the eggs are destroyed.  
This will cause the game to end¤. Adora is blue on the map and eggs are orange.
Pick up the first egg, do not return to the lair¤. Fly around and destroy any
moving enemy and stock up on Fury Attacks, and pick up at least one of the 
air spheres (This will make you fly faster using the dragon power button 
(square)) before you bring the egg back to the lair. Then pick up the next egg
and follow the same pattern for all the eggs. In this process you will 
encounter 5 captains. Kill those off^ from a distance~, before they make it to 
the lair. If a captain should get in to the lair, destroy him with a 
Fury Attack (This will not damage the eggs).You will be rewarded with an 
elemental orb upon completion of this mission(as far as I can remember:).

==============================================================================
Aftermath:

Ah, the smell of clean mountain air and burnt Orc. The eggs are safe
and Cael is ready to return to Desmurin Ty; to lay waste to the Zeenium
factory and the Orcs that infest the area. It's time 
for revenge!
==============================================================================

==============================================================================
Level 6 - Vengance
==============================================================================
Introduction:

The compound where Cael almost lost his life is already back in production! 
Cael has learned much since he was here last. NoW, it's time to level the 
Zeenium factory and teach the orcs to stay dead!
==============================================================================
Mission Objectives:

- Destroy the Zeenium factory.
- Prevent all orcs from escaping.
==============================================================================
Objective two caused me failiure _twice_ because I wasn't fast enough. 
Simply destroy _all_ orcs and buildings before getting close to the next 
base^. Take care when passing trough the elemental wards...Also take care to 
heal whenever you can, at the end there will be _a lot_ of orcs that you have 
to stop dead in their tracks, or else there will be game over. Rather go for 
the blinking orcs/arrows then to heal since you can _not_ use a continue 
to...well, continue after one of them has escaped¤. Take good us of the Air 
spell(fly faster with square and attack multiple targets).
If you destroyed a big round building near the end of the level,
you will be rewarded with an elemental orb upon completion of this mission. 
==============================================================================
Aftermath:

Desmuran Ty is a scorched ruin, littered with the orc dead. Cael has won his 
first major victory and, if Adara is right, he may have another powerful ally 
to aid him in this war.
==============================================================================

==============================================================================
Level 7 - Darkness falls
==============================================================================
Introduction:

A powerful orc nmed Galthran Etuk has been aiding Cael ehind the scenes. 
He taught Adara how to restore Cael's power and is ready to take an active 
role, but is trapped behind a mystic barrier. It's time to fre him.
==============================================================================
Mission Objectives:

- Destroy the tower imprisoning Galthran.
- Remove the Dark Wards from enclosing Stone circles.
==============================================================================
Destroy the building right at the entrance of the valley to get an earth orb. 
Now pick up the purple key^ from where the big building stood and continue. 
Move along, eating orcs on the way. You'll encounter a couple of captains, 
kill them (fury-attack anyone?...). Destroy the main buildings in each of the 
4 cities to aquire a purple key^. Take care to avoid/destroy the mines 
floating all over the place~. Use the keys to unlock the small purple wards, 
thereby damaging the shield surrounding the major fortress^. When you have 
aquired all six keys, destroy the large fortress^ using fury-attack(s)
(there is a shrine here, so use it). Enjoy the FMV.
==============================================================================
Aftermath:

This victory was a bitter one. Adara is taken and Cael is trapped by the 
betrayer Galthram. Cael, however, is far from finished. The trap will be 
broken and Galthran won't live long enough to enjoy his freedom.
==============================================================================

==============================================================================
Level 8 - Betrayal
==============================================================================
Introduction:

Cael has been caged and his fury attack drained, but no spell can hold an 
enraged dragon for long. Vengeance, however, must wait. Galthran's ships are 
escaping with Adara and they will interrogate her for the location of the 
lair. She must be rescued quickly.
==============================================================================
Mission Objectives:

-Escape Galthran's trap.
-Find and rescue Adara.
==============================================================================
Quickly destroy the two generators using the rocks that are around^. 
After that, follow the arrows and destroy the four ships^. Adara is in the 
last one(of course). Take advantage of all the orcs and animals on land. 
Consume as many as you can(if you need to) on the way. I haven't found any 
Air-elemental orbs on this level yet(which would make the job a lot easier), 
so just try and be quick. As usually, should you not be fast enough, it will 
be instant game over.
==============================================================================
Aftermath:

Galthran may be powerful, but he's still an orc. Cael escaped from his 
invincible trap and rescued Adara. Better still, she overheard some valuable 
information while she was caged. 
==============================================================================

==============================================================================
Level 9 - Liberation
==============================================================================
Introduction:

Adara may be gullible, but she's proved her worth again. Her people are to be 
shipped from slavehold to Orc Strongholds in the North. Free them and they 
will be your allies. Make Galthram pay dearly for his betrayal.
==============================================================================
Mission Objectives:

-Find the imprisoned Sprites.
-Find the Dark Key and dispel the Dark Ward.
-Destroy the warehouse and free the Sprites.
-Stop transport boats from escaping with Zeenium Shipment.
==============================================================================
Destroy the caravans to reveal elemental orbs. The bases are at the locations 
as pointed by the orange markers. During this ignore the ships you encounter. 
Just watch your life which can be depleted rather quickly. The whereabouts of 
the Dark Key is random so you'll just have to destroy the bases until you spot
it. Just stop right outside of an elemental Ward, if it is another element 
than the one you currently have equipped. Then fire towards the core of the 
base. Once destroyed, pick up the Dark Key and return towards the Dark Ward. 
However, before you destroy the base you should be at full health, and mana, 
Destroy the Warehouse, preferably by using a Fury attack(to save mana and 
health). Then the boat part kicks in. Quickly turn towards sea(L2) and 
destroy all of the transports(the doesn't have the same appearance as the 
normal boats; they are lower, larger expanse). You only have around 1.5 
minutes to do this. But since they start from shore(and tou are right next to 
it) you only nedd 30-40 seconds to fulfill this requirement. Enjoy the FMV.
==============================================================================
Aftermath:

The Sprites are free and a large shipment of Zeenium was destroyed! All 
production and shipment of Zeenium from this island has ended and the Orc 
empire will be taking Cael much more seriously now. 
==============================================================================

==============================================================================
Level 10 - Go Fish
==============================================================================
Introduction: 

The Sprites reprt that an Orc General named Mandek is leading a 
huge Orc Armada south. Cael's destruction is their primary goal. 
Destroy them while they are still gathering. The fish need feeding...

==============================================================================
Mission Objectives:

-Destroy Mandek's navy: kill all Galleons!
-Destroy Mandek's flagship.
==============================================================================
The key to success is your skill with the shoulder buttons. If you keep using 
the L2 & R2 buttons while attacking the Galleons you should be just fine. 
Once you have destroyed around 15 Galleons, Mandeks Flagship appears. This
ship has a significent larger amount of life but if you have 2 Fury attacks, 
use them while at the same time attacking with normal attacks. His rate of 
fire will be reduced while you use the Fury attacks so don't worry. Keep 
fireing and he'll escape. Remember, you can die once, so no sweat!
==============================================================================
Aftermath:

So much for the great General Mandek. All his troops and weapons couldn't 
stop one Dragon from demolishing the orc Navy. Now, his burning flagship sails
to the north with Cael close behind.
==============================================================================

==============================================================================
Level 11 - Mandeks Cove
==============================================================================
Introduction: 

The Coward Mandek has fled north and is hiding on his island base. 
His defences are powerful, but if you annihilate this base, the orc Navy 
will be in chaos. The harbour towns will be undefended and easy targets.
==============================================================================
Mission Objectives:

-Attack Mandek's Cove.
-Destroy the Zeppelin base and recover the Dark Key.
-Destroy Mandek's naval base.
==============================================================================
Once you reach the destination, you'll be met by a Dark Ward. Turn around(L2) 
to face a base. After the message, move to back of base. Destroy all of the 
buildings there~ until you see the Air orb. Then destroy all the buildings 
until you see the Dark Key. Pick it up(^). Now return to the Dark Ward and go to 
the right; ignore the ship, you can't destroy it anyway¤. Destroy the attacking
towers on the right side^(there are some cows and sheep her), then eat the 
mages~. After this move to the left and destroy everything there. Now all you 
have do is destroy the large buildings(^) and you're done!
==============================================================================
Aftermath:

While Cael polished off the last of the Orc Navy, Adara managed to learn why 
the Coward General left in such a hurry. He was moving his treasury for 
safekeeping and the ship crashed. A ship filled with GOLD!!
==============================================================================

 VIII Faq section
=================

-Q: How do I save ?(yes, it has been asked...)

-A: After you have completed a mission, and you can read the aftermath, 
simply press X, and you'll be taken to the save screen. You manually choose 
yourself that you want to continue without saving your progress.   
Maybe the option doesn't show when your memory card is full. Check that there 
is sufficient space on it. If not, you either have to delete a few saves, 
or you go and buy a new memory card...

-Q: Could you tell what there is to tell about the Fury attacks ?

-A:Your current elemental enchantment determines the Fury Attack. 
You can only hold three Fury Attacks. You will lose your unused Fury Attacks 
at the end of the level, you will automatically start every level with one 
Fury Attack.

-Q: Level 12...

-A: I know i know, I had the same problem myself. You have to use the air-
element all that you can. Before you leave the island with gold on it, kill 
all orcs that you are able to see. 

-Q: I have completed the level 'Dragon Rage', but no more levels are unlocked,
even though it looks like there are other levels to be...unlocked !

-A: It seems as the developers haven't put in all of the levels they intended
to have in the game, but I have heard rumours that says it is possible to 
unlock one more level using a cheat cartridge, but I don't take _any_

Dark Predator Dragon (dpdfaq@hotmail.com) :
====================
Told Snowmouse what to write on missions 2-5, other missions are written by 
him DPD himself. Wrote the Copyright messsage. Dumped Snowmouse's idea of 
using "-", and used "=" instead. Actual maker of this guide. 
Real name: Yngve Hegreberg.

Snowmouse            (Snowmouse_007@hotmail.com) :
=========
Typed some of the missions (2-5). Dark Predator Dragon told him what to write,
and surprinsingly he did it. Designed the ascii art. (Wow! It's really cool,
isn't it? *) (He just to typed in Dragon Rage in a program, really)
Wrote (some of) the  Credits. Snowmouse doesn't have the game, so guess what?,
don't send him any questions about the game!:) 
Real name: Anders Olsaker.
