    3.1)- Headhunter
    ----------------------
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Name: Headhunter
    Level: 5
    Hp: 250
    Pp: 90
    Element: Darkness
    Weakness: Thunder
    Attacks: Ani Zot, Sword Swing
    Difficulty: 3/10
    
    Strategy: This guy is fairly easy. Issue the "Skills" command and allow Black
    Rose to use her skills. Headhunter will cast Ani Zot to dish out around 50.
    If he does this, use repth far away on Black Rose to heal her. Since 
    Headhunter's weakness is lightning, use various lightning scrolls to dish out 
    major damage. Eventualy, his green barrier will say "Protect Break". Go to you 
    skills menu and select "Data Drain". You can now actually cause damage to it! 
    Keep up this strategy and it will fall easily.

    3.2)- Rock Head
    ----------------------
    
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Name: Rock Head
    Level: 9
    Hp: 410
    Pp: 185
    Element: Earth
    Weakness: Wood
    Attacks: Rig Saem (Heal 8 hp every 2 seconds), Slam, Rock twirl
    Difficulty: 4/10
    
    Strategy: This battle is a bit tougher, but not much. Issue the "skills"
    command and have mistral cast wood spells/scrolls. You should be busy healing
    party members and using wood based scrolls. Try not to let anyone die as you
    do not want to waste any ressurects at this point in the game. You must 
    constantly hit this guy because he heals 8 hp every 2 seconds!
    _______________________________________________________________________________
     
    
    -----------------------
    3.3)- Red Wyrm
    -----------------------
    
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Name: Red Wyrm
    Level: 10
    Hp: 850
    Pp: 105
    Element: Fire
    Weakness: Water
    Attacks: Fire Breath, Vak Don, Tail slap
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Strategy: This guy can handle a LOT of damage. To make this even harder, you
    are fighting with only Kite! Make sure you level up to at LEAST 13. The wyrm's
    fire breath attack can deal a good 120 hp worth of damage. Use a burning oil
    on yourself to cut this in half. To make things better, this also cuts the
    50hp damage of it's Vak Don attack down to 20 or 30! It also helps to have
    armor which raises your fire attribute. Use physical attacks on it until
    you can data drain it. Once you do this, it will start using it's fire breath
    attack much more fequently. Back off and use water based scrolls to deal
    around 80 to 100 hp of damage to it.

    3.4)- Stone Turtle
    -----------------------
    
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Name: Stone Turtle 
    Level: 13
    Hp: 1090
    Pp: 1090
    Element: Earth
    Weakness: Wood
    Attacks: Rig Saem (Heals 16 hp per 2 seconds), Smash, various earth spells
    Difficulty: 5/10
    
    Strategy: This battle is fought much like the Rock Head battle. You must con-
    stantly dish out damage to counter the effects of Rig Saem! Issue "Skills"
    command and allow Mia and Elk to use magic and skills. This guy can deal out
    around 80-120 damage per attack. When this happens, issue the "First Aid"
    command and allow Elk to use La Repth to heal your party. Use wood skills
    like "Gale of Swords" and various wood based spells which will deal loads
    of damage. Eventualy, after you data drain him, you can data drain him a
    second time! Use this to your advantage to save health drinks and time.

    3.5)- Killer Snaker
    ---------------------
    
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Name: Killer Snaker 
    Level: 16
    Hp: 1330
    Pp: 485
    Element: Earth
    Weakness: Wood
    Attacks: MeGan Rom, Physical Attacks
    Difficulty: 1/10
    
    Strategy: This guy can be easy or hard, whichever you choose. If you have 
    Hell's Gate for Kite, you can unleash "Gale of Swords" which can get this boss 
    seriously hurt. Use a Mage's Soul to constantly deal major damage to this boss.
    Also, use La Repth with Elk to heal any lost Hp.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    
    ---------------------
    3.6)- Thousand Trees
    ---------------------
    
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Name: Thousand Trees
    Level: 18
    Hp: 1090
    Pp: 2750
    Element: Wood
    Weakness: Earth
    Attacks: RaJuk Rom
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Strategy: You should probably level up before taking this guy on. I am a level
    up freak, so I was level 26. He's easy if you have good skills like "Twirling
    Dark" and other level 2 tech skills. This guy is slow and he doesn't hurt all
    that much. Bring a party of Kite, Black Rose, and Gardenia and you should be
    fine. Issue the "Skills" command and allow them two to do their part while you
    hack away with "Twirling Dark" and your other skills. Use Ol Repth (if you have
    it) to recover 400hp to any one who is hurt. If you do not have Ol repth, use
    Rip Maen on any character who fall dead to this boss. You can get Rip Maen
    from the "Scarab Earring". To get the scarab earing, use the Springs of mist
    to upgrade your head armor.

    3.7)-Skeith (Part 1)
    ---------------------
    
    -_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_
    3.71)- Preparations
    -_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_
    
    -Bring a party of Kite, Black Rose, and Gardenia
    
    -Equip Kite with the Scarab Earring. This allows him to cast great healing 
    spells.
    
    -Get around 10 restoratives and 10 antidotes
    
    -Be at least level 32
    
    -Get the ceramic helm from the Gott statue at Passionate, Dog-Dancing, Tri 
    Pansy and equip it to Black Rose before the battle. This will allow her to 
    cast rig saem and rig gaem before the battle. If one of you characters dies, 
    do not bother recasting both these spells.
    
    -Get at least 20 pure waters. These reduce the damage taken by "Judgement" 
    attack.
    
    -For a more speedy alternative to the scarrab earring, bring plenty of 
    ressurects
    and health potions.
    
    -Pray to god that you do not die on your first
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Name: The Terror of Death: Skeith
    Level: 99
    Hp: Unknown
    Pp: Unknown
    Element: None
    Weakness: None
    Attacks: Data Drain, Judgement, Cross Stab, Cross Swing
    Difficulty: 9/10
    
    Strategy: This guy is reall a pain in the butt. all of his attacks do well over
    300hp of damage except his Data Drain attack which puts every status effect on
    one of your characters! Use restorative and antidotes to counter this attack. 
    His Cross stab is an attack where he stabs his cross in the ground dealing 
    400hp worth of damage to anyone it hits! His sword swing only deals around 300
    damage to a single character. His final attack, Judgement, does about 400-500
    damage to your whole party, regardless of where they are! Use a pure water
    at the beggining of this battle to cut the damage done by judgement in half. 
    Issue the "Skills" command and and stay back as far as you can. Watch as your
    party members slowly whittle at Skeith's hp. They will constantly die, there 
    is no way to counter this except the Rip Maen spell or a ressurect. You must 
    be 
    patient and don't try to go in and attack Skeith because he will use his cross 
    stab skill which will obliterate you and your party. All you have to do is stay
    back and use Rip Maen and ressurects. Don't bother try to actually heal Black 
    Rose and Gardenia as Skeith deals out more damage than you can heal. Use any 
    Health Potions you have on yourself. Every time he casts Judgement, you should 
    use health potions. Keep this up until you can final data drain Skeith.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ---------------------
    3.8)- Skeith (Part 2)
    ---------------------
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Name: Data Drained Skeith
    Level: 1
    Hp: 4000
    Pp: N/A
    Element: None
    Weakness: None
    Attacks: Judgement, Sword Stab
    Difficulty: 10/10
    
    Strategy: Use the same strategy as posted before. Just because he lost two of 
    his attacks does not mean he is easier. In fact, he is much harder than before.
    He uses his attacks 2 times as much, which means he will be casting Judgement 
    every 15  seconds! He also moves around faster. Just use the same strategy and
    stay back from him! You don't want to die once you get this far into the battle

    4.0) Parasite Dragon
    
    ###############################################################################
    
    ------------------
    4.1)- Preparations
    ------------------
    
    -Be at least level 34 before taking this monster on.
    
    -Have everyone's ultimate weapons.
    
    -Bring a party of Black Rose and Gardenia with Kite.
    
    -Have around 20 health potions, 25 ressurects, and around 15 mage's souls.
    
    -Bring Rip Maen spell.
    
    -Bring at least 15 Restoratives
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Name: Parasite Dragon
    Level: 30
    Hp: 9999
    Pp: 8888
    Element: None
    Weakness: None
    Attacks: Breath, Confusion, Claw Swipe
    Difficulty: 9/10
    
    Strategy: Start off by sending Gardenia and Black Rose to attack the dragon.
    They should deal around 100-150 damage per hit. Stay back away from the dragon
    because it's fire breath attack will kill anyone who is in front of it. Once
    it kills gardenia and black rose, use a single ressurect and cast rip maen
    skill once to save PP and ressurects. The dragon will confuse gardenia or black
    rose. You should immediately use a restorative to counter this. All you should
    be doing is reviving your 2 other party members. If by some chance kite gets
    hit, immediately use a health potion to restore kite's HP. Use a mage sould 
    when Kite runs out of HP. Do not use magic in this battle. The parasite dragon
    is magic resistant and cannot be hurt by magic! When it says that you can data 
    drain the dragon, do so because it is the only way to get the rare twin blade 
    swords called Hyakkidouran.
