o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

The peace we now all enjoy was defended in the most recent war by Rolandia's 
Knights working with a Growsian firl named Louise, a mercenary named Wallace, 
a swordsman named Xenos, and a young scholar named Ariost.  They were 
supported by King Eliotte and Lord Douglas of Burnstein.

The neighbors to our Sovereign Kingdom of Burnstein are Rolandia to the west 
and Ranzack to the south.  The Magic Academy located between Burnstein and 
Rolandia was jointly developed to research, regulate, and control magic 
technology...to the benefit of both kingdoms.

First Name - First name of character
Lv         - Is a character's experience level

MP         - Represents a character's magic point, or magic force.

By gaining experience and increasing levels, a character grows stronger and 
more skilled.  Experience can be gained by defeating enemies or using magic, 
with a few exceptions.

When leveling up, only the STR, INT, and DEX stats are increased.  The amount 
of increase varies by character.  STR directly affects ATK, DEF, and HP.  Each 
armor has a minumum STR value.  Equipping with insufficient strength will 
cause movement or evasion panelties.  While INT directly affcts MP, DEX 
influences movement ability, Aria length, evasion and hit probability.

Each time a character receives damage, their HP is reduced.  If it reaches 
zero, they are defeated.  HP can be recovered in battle by using magic, 
skills, or equipped items.  After battles, HP is recovered automatically.

MP is decreased every time a magic is cast.  The amount depends on the spell 
and character.  When MP is empty, no more spells can be cast.  MP can be 
recovered with skills and equipped items.  Staying at an Inn will also recover 
MP.

ATK us the main factor in how much damage one character will inflict on 
another.  It's affected by the character's STR and Lv.

DEF relates to how much damage is decreased from an enemy attack.  This is 
affected by the character's STR and equipped armor.

MOV is affected by the character's DEX.

HIT is the numeric representation of how well a character will strike enemies.  
This is influenced by the character's DEX value.

ATW affects the delay after an attack before another command may be executed.  
A lower number means less delay.  This stat can be lowered by various means, 
including equipping certain items.

ATK and DEF are important for fighters.  If a fighter's ATW is high, the 
number of attacks is decreased.  If MOV is low, it will take longer to reach 
enemies before engaging them.  For magic users, INT and DEX are important.  
Magic users rely on MP to battle effectively.  They are less valuable if their 
MP runs out in battle.

For resistance, there are 8 values, 0 (critical) through 6 (no effect) and 
absorbtion.  The standard value for magic resistance is 2.  When there are 
many enemies, it is a good idea to increase ME beforehand by equipping an 
item.

Equip armor to raise DEF.  Each armor has a minumum STR value.  Equipping with 
insufficient strength will cause movement or evasion penalties.

There are different types of rings to be aware of when choosing which to 
equip.  They are: A Unknown, B Fighter's, and C Gran.  Types A and B increase 
rank, while type C increases parameters.  Judge which ring will be most useful 
for a specific character by studying the parameter window as each ring is 
highlighted.

Ring Weapons are said to have been popular in ancient times.  They transform 
from rings into weapons by reacting to the inner fighting ability of the one 
who wears it.  The form the weapon takes is determined by the Ring Master's 
ability.  Attaching special power gems to the ring adds special effects and 
powers not present in regular weapons.  Ring Weapons have been collected and 
spread across the world by Ring Merchants.  Special knowledge is required to 
change the ring's attributes, and shops specializing in this will be opening 
kingdomwide soon.

Adding a Gem to the hollow areas of a Ring Weapon will assign a special 
ability or effect to that weapon.  Each Gem holds a specific power level.  The 
amount within each Gem is shown by a level number preceding each name.

A Ring Weapon has two effects.
 - Changing Abilities
 - Controlling Gem Power

You can judge the effects of a particular ring by its name once you get used 
to the system.  The parameters next to the ring will provide guidance for the 
less-skilled however.

Occasionally, when there is bloodshed, a new Ring Weapon will emerge.  
Therefore, battling is an easy way for a Ring Master to obtain new, more 
powerful rings.  Of course, to obtain the strongest rings involves an element 
of certain danger to the Ring Master in battle.  The stronger the opponent 
slain, the stronger the ring that may emerge.  However, the risk of death to 
the Ring Master also increases proportionally.

Rings are useful for fighters, because STR will also affect ATK and DEF stats.  
Advanced fighters must balance not only stat increases, but also control value 
concerns.  Rings with control power of 0 are useless for attaching Gems, so 
should only be kept if they give a significant stat increase.  Since only 50 
rings can be kept at a time, it is therefore prudent to sell rings that are 
less powerful than those currently equipped as soon as possible.

Unlike rings, you should keep as many Gems on hand as possible because each 
may affect rings yet to be obtained in interesting and useful ways.  There is 
no way of knowing what the effects will be until the Gems are matched to 
specific rings, so it is useful to have as many Gems as possible on hand at 
all times.

o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

The Featherian tribe led the way in our journey across the space-time 
continuum to this blessed new world.  They do not command magic, but rather 
are skilled in the ways of science.  The Control Tower that bridges the space-
time continuum was a result of their efforts.

o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

In this world, there is no evidence of Grow elements.  Since Grow is the 
source of our magic power, immense magics that were cast routinely in the old 
world cannot be summoned here.   Growsians can still make limited use of their 
abilities here by tapping the tiny amounts of Grow that leak through the crack 
created by the bridge in the space-time continuum.

Because the Growsians channeled power greater than the inhabitants of this 
world possessed, they ruled vast areas for generations.  However, without 
warning, these rulers vanished suddenly one day.  The ruins of their great 
kingdoms still exist even now.

o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

Burnstein Army is organized as follows:  Squadrons of 5, Platoons of 10, 
Companies of 5 Platoons, Battalions of 5 Companies, and Regiments of 5 
Battalions.  Each General commands 3 Regiments normally, but in battle the 
power structure is flexible out of necessity.

O============================================================================O

Character descriptions can also be found very close by in the instruction 
manual, unless of course you rented the game and didn't get one, in which case 
the following may benefit you.

 ----- Wein Cruz -o

"Since he was a young boy adventuring with his father, Wein admired the skill 
and stature of the imperial knights.  Knowing that just one knight had the 
ability of 100 soldiers and the admiration of an entire kingdom made them an 
irresistable fascination."

"One day, Wein imagined he, too, would become an Imperial Knight, serving the 
king and providing inspiration for others.  Turning that dream into a reality 
will prove more treacherous than he ever imagined."

 ----- Maximillian Schneider -o

"Still mourning for the father that was lost to him in the last great war, 
Maximillian enrolls in the academy to fufill his father's last wish.  His 
understandable distaste for war in all its forms is in strong contrast to the 
Academy teachings, and so he intends to graduate to a life of politics rather 
than a military career."

"Unfortunately, life is about to throw him another curve ball..."

 ----- Hans Bearnt -o

"There is a nagging sense of urgency to everything Hans does.  Perhaps it is 
his nature, or perhaps it is related to being an orphan, alone in a world torn 
by war.  Though his childlike "enthusiasm" can become wearisome at times, no 
one can deny that he puts his all into whatever assignment he is given."

"When he joins Wein after crossing paths in a chance encounter, his life will 
be changed forever.  The burden of deciding whether that path will lead to 
good or evil is left to you."

 ----- Charlone Claudius -o

"Born to a life of wealth and privilege, but longing for more adventure than 
her assigned place in society allows, Charlone Claudius enrolls in the Academy 
with the intention of one day becoming an Imperial Knight."

"Unfortunately, before her intended journey even begins, it is derailed into a 
plot of deception, murder, and intrugue that will force her to quickly become 
the knight she desperately wants to be... or just another overreaching 
casualty of misguided ambition."

 ----- Sereb -o

"Arieta and Sereb are seemingly inseparable.  He is of the Silver Fox Tribe 
and a descendant of the old world tribe."

"He is extremely protective of his friend, and will not allow any harm to come 
to her while he is at her side.  Because of his lineage, he has learned to 
communicate in human tongue if he so chooses."

 ----- Wolfgang -o

"His face scarred during a conflict shrouded in mystery, Wolfgang has become 
one of the best-known mercenaries in the three kingdoms.  His skill and 
ambition have pushed him to the top of the heap in cheap, mobile killers-for-
hire."

 ----- Carmaine Fallsmyer -o

"This is the one person who can fully understand what Wein will experience as 
he grapples with his destiny, because Carmaine was also thrust into a position 
of power and responsibility unexpectedly and at a rather young age was forced 
into maturity."

"His help can prove to be invaluable to Wein... if the correct path is 
chosen."

 ----- Arieta Lyuis -o

"Her sweet appearance and soft voice are seemingly at odds with her tough 
determination and battle-hardened skills.  The mystery of her past only 
deepens when Wein finds her again after ten years have passed, yet her 
appearance is unchanged."

"At times, it seems as if there are two arietas -- one kind and compassionate, 
and the other harsh and demanding."

"Finding her true self and a happy ending will not be easy."

 ----- Xenos Langley -o

"Strong and decisive, Xenos has a history as both a Mercenary and servant of 
the King.  Despite his dark past, or perhaps because of it, he has become 
Champion of the Arena near Grandshill, raising his profile in both Rolandia 
and Burnstein Kingdoms."

"At the height of his popularity, he decided to retire from the Arena a 
Champion, rather than continue to defend the title.  This puzzling choice only 
hints at the painful secrets this complicated warrior shelters."

 ----- Riviera Marius -o

"A shroud of mystery clouds the past of this woman.  Xenos knows more than he 
is telling, but that is the only thing that is certain when it comes to 
Riviera."

"Her skills are impressive... far beyond what a woman protecting a remote 
village should be able to master.  Only time will tell what her true mission 
is..."

----- Ernest Lyell -o

"This mysterious outsider has a story that many in the kingdom could never 
guess."

"His support of an imposter vying for succession of the King of Burstein 
should have resulted in immediate execution, but mercy was shown and he was 
sent into exile instead."

"He can help Wein... if he can be found."

----- Brett Varner -o

"Brett's role in this story is quite minor, he is extra help in a tough 
situation.  However, his connections to the overall story arc become apparent 
when the Side Game "Sandra's Quest" is unlocked and played.  This game 
provides backstory and connects some of the events of Growlanser I to 
Growlanser II."

 Practical Skills Exam |--------------------------------------------(Fw002)-o
-----------------------/

Following the first scene you arrive at the site of your first test and get to 
meet a new character named Maximillian.

"But enough of that.  The exam is about to begin.  Do you know the rules?"

 - Yes
 - No

"We've only just met, but I wonder if I might ask you a few questions... Is 
 that alright?"

 - Yes
 - No

"Do you need battle advice?"

 - Yes
 - No

If you select yes there's a scene in which Maximillian teaches you the basics 
of the combat system.  You have two primary options, attack (ATK) or move 
(MOV) in the command window.  They can be used obviously to attack and move 
your position.  More detail will be used later.

~* Officer Field Exam *~

   Completion Conditions:               Game Over Conditions:

 - All enemies destroyed              - None

The battle begins, there are a total of eight people on the field and six of 
them are your enemies.  Current options available to Wein are ATK, DEF, MOV, 
and EQP.  Use the attack command to choose one of the six targets to attack.  
Maximillian has all the same options available plus the MAG command.  If at 
any point either of your characters become hurt Max can cast cure magic and 
select a target to be healed.  For now it is best to choose ATK, attack the 
same character with Max as you did with Wein to keep them together.  ThHe same 
tactic applies to the rest of the battle, you should have no problem winning 
with simple ATK commands and the occasional heal.  Also don't forget that at 
any time if you wish to cancel a command you already made, simply hit square 
and your menu will appear at the end of the next turn.

It is a good idea to learn early there are three type of battle-end 
contingencies, Mission Failed, Mission Clear and Mission Complete.  Getting 
all Mission Complete ratings will open up a special choice for you later in 
the game and while this practice battle does not count towards this event it 
is still possible to get a Mission Compelte here, you must kill all six 
enemies with Max and Wein, they cannot kill each other.  To do this allow the 
mage who is fighting to damage the enemies and use Max to finish them off with 
his magic.  After a couple of rounds kill the mage in one hit with Max's magic 
and then finish the enemies manually with normal attacks.  Always target the 
enemies who have the least amount of HP and are just about to be killed by a 
different opponent, it is very possible to do.

 ~* End of Battle *~


-----------------------------------\
 Burnstein Military Command Center |---------------------------------(Fw003)-o
-----------------------------------/

Just a scene to watch here.

"Ah, yes.  Your dream of becoming an Imperial Knight, right?"

 - Yes, it's been my goal for so long!
 - That is only the beginning
 - Yes, but what about you, Max?

"Commander..."

 - I would like to postpone the final exam
 - Why not just give us a passing grade now?
 - I know these are diffucult times...

Soon after you'll find yourself on the world map.  The X button selects a 
destination to move to.  Press circle to unlock your cursor and move freely 
between areas, also press L1 or R1 to quickly move to the next available area.  
Select the Burnstein W Capital.


---------------------\
 Burnstein W Capital |----------------------------------------------(Fw004)-o
---------------------/

Watch the scene here.

"Just as soldiers are needed once war breaks out, I feel there is a greater 
 need for those who can prevent was from even beginning.  Don't you agree?"

 - Yes
 - No

Back on the world map you now have some new options.  Square will display your 
menu, be sure to do so and save your game.  Pressing X on the location you are  
standing on brings up some options as well.  There range from Gather 
Information, Go to Inn, Go to Shop and usually some special area of that 
particular location.  Gathering information can be an important tool to help 
you progress in the game.  In this particular case you need to go to Gather 
Information at the Burnstein W Capital and talk to the officer.  When you do a 
new route will open up to your next destination.  The North Clain Village 
which is located to the South is only a checkpoint you can't pass so don't 
bother going there.  If you return to Burnstein Capital you can access the 
shop.

 Burnstein Capital Inn

 - Rest............... 10 Elm

 Burnstein Capitol Armor Shop

 - Clothes............ 30 Elm
 - Heavy Clothes...... 80 Elm

You can probably afford one set of heavy clothes at this time.  Buy some and 
equip them on Wein and then select Starkberg as you next destination.


-----------\
 Starkberg |--------------------------------------------------------(Fw00?)-o
-----------/

There's a scene right when you enter.

Choose action:

 - Comply obediently
 - Comment excitedly
 - Let actions say it all

Saying "Let actions say it all" is the best choice.

~* Steeling Starkberg *~

   Completion Conditions:               Game Over Conditions:

 - All enemies destroyed              - Civilian Casualties
                                      - Maximillian is defeated
   Enemies:                           - Wein is defeated

 - Master Brainiac (Lv11)             - Slime (Lv1)
 - Slime (Lv1)                        - Hyde (Lv9)
 - Imp (Lv3)                          - Slime (Lv1)
 - Demi Yung (Lv4)                    - Yung (Lv15)
 - Slime (Lv2)                        - Slime (Lv2)

Notice that the two enemies nearest to the child both have very high levels, 
it is not your responsibility to fight these enemies.  Move both of your 
characters just South of the child but don't have them attack at this point.  
Soon a couple of slime enemies will appear at the South.  These are the 
enemies you will want to battle.  As soon as they appear open the menu and 
have both Max and Wein attack them.  Once one is dead go after the other.  
Following this it should be time for everyone to flee into the town.  Watch 
out because the imp will cast magic on the child, the moment the child takes 
damage heal him using a cure spell from Maximillian.  You will probably 
experience a level up during this battle, when you level up you the L1 and R1 
triggers to cycle between available skills and distribute points to them as 
you see fit.  If you think you're strong enough you can go after the Yung 
enemy, but watch out because it heals HP every turn.  Killing it will almost 
guarantee a level up though.  As long as you and Max kill the majoirty of the 
weak enemies, and no civilians are hurt you should get the Mission Complete.

 ~* End of Battle *~

After the fight watch the scene.  You'll find yourself back on the world map 
once again.  Now would be a good time to upgrade your equipment.  When you 
select the Ring Artisan you will ahevt he option of reading a book.  Do so, it 
will teach you many things about how rings work in this game.  As an added 
bonus when you finish reading you will find a Lv2 Blood Blade gem between the 
pages.  Pick up a Fur Coat for Wein and equip his Heavy Clothes on 
Maximillian.

 Starkberg Inn:

 - Rest............... 10 Elm

 Starkberg Armor Shop:

 - Clothes............ 30 Elm
 - Heavy Clothes...... 80 Elm
 - Fur Coat........... 235 Elm

Head South to South Starkberg and select it with X for a quick little scene.  
Next proceed to Schwarzfals Village and another event occurs.  Also check out 
South Starkberg.  Continue to the West Starkberg Ruins.


----------------------\
 West Starkberg Ruins |---------------------------------------------(Fw0??)-o

~* Ruin Nation *~

   Completion Conditions:               Game Over Conditions:

 - All enemies destroyed              - Maximillian is defeated
                                      - Wein is defeated
   Enemies:                           - Hans is defeated

 - Demi Yung (Lv4)                    - Demi Yung (Lv4)
 - Imp (Lv3)                          - Bone Golem (Lv3)
 - Bone Golem (Lv3)                   - Bone Golem (Lv3)

There are many changes that occur in this battle as you play through it.  
Start by setting Max and Wein to attack the nearby Yung, be sure no matter 
what you do that you perform an action that will involve you moving Northeast, 
the reasoning will become clear soon.  Within one or two turns all of a sudden 
Hans appears, as well as three new enemies and a moving spike wall, this is 
the reason you are trying to move up so fast.  While it isn't too hard to 
finish this battle without the wall coming anywhere near you, it is easier if 
you just fight your way up.  If an enemy gets behind you ignore him, and don't 
worry much about healing until you are in a safe area.  Use Hans' ranged 
attacks and Maximillian magic from a safe distance if an enemy still remains 
in the danger zone, but don't risk going back in yourself!  Remember to keep 
everyone's HP up, anyone's death means game over.  A Mission Complete on this 
map simply means killing all the enemies without taking any casualties.

 ~* End of Battle *~

Watch the scene after the battle.  Back on the world map make your way to 
Starkberg.

"Is that all there is?"

 - We're both knights!  That's great!
 - I'm glad we made it!
 - We can't relax... this is just the start.

Afterwards you'll find yourself on the world map again.  You probably got a 
new ring that is superior to whichever you had equipped in the last battle so 
head to the Starkberg Artisan.  Also don't forget to equip any gems you may 
have.  Now go back to Schwarzfals Village if you wish to view another scene.  
Your primary destination is Burnstein Capital.

-------------------\
 Burnstein Capital |------------------------------------------------(Fw005)-o
-------------------/

A number of events will occur when you arrive.  During the scene at the cliff 
you receive a Lv8 Hyper-Attack.  Following the scene you're taken to the 
command center, a lengthy time in the future.

"Charlone?"

 - (But, she's my junior!)
 - (I don't know about this.)
 - (Whoo! She's kind of cute!)

"Hans Bearnt?"

 - Is this some kind of joke?
 - (What's with the finger/nose thing?)
 - Congratulations on qualifying!

The last option for Charlone will increase your relationship meter with her, 
and the last option for Hans does the same with him.
 
Another length of time passes.  At this point you learn of your new mission.  
On the world map you're granted 500 Elm to help upgrade with any equipment you 
may need.  At this point the Gem Shop has become available as well.

 Burnstein Capital Inn                 Starkberg Gem Shop

Pick up a couple of those cheap Lv1 gems for everyone that has an open slot.  
When you're ready go to Burnstein W Capital.

(Oh, great.  What do I do?)

 - Call her CC, too!
 - Tell the Runt to stop it.
 - Reason with Hans.

The first option increases your relationship with Hans, and decreases it with 
Charlone.  The second does the opposite and the third does nothing.

On the world map head West to Starkberg.  Select it and enter the Claudius 
Mansion.  There's a number of events that occur in her mansion.  Afterwards 
select Starkberg and speak with Hans.  Speak with Charlone as well, at 
Schwarzfals Village.

Your final destination still remains to be Rottenbaum Village, regardless of 
how you get there.  Also note that at this point in the game, random battles 
start occurring.  You can level up as much or as little as you wish.


--------------------\
 Rottenbaum Village |-----------------------------------------------(Fw006)-o
--------------------/

Watch the scene when you enter.

"What should we do?"

 - Check outside the village
 - Force the investigation ahead
 - There's nothing to do really

The first option increases your relationship with the two of them, the other 
two decrease it dramatically.

Following that you are returned to the world map.

Select N Rottenbaum Village now.  There's a scene when you arrive.  Head to 
Schwarzfals Village and go to gather information, speak with the Student and 
agree to help him, he will give you Story #1.  After that speak with Charlone 
as one of the options.  Go North to Starkberg and speak with Hans.  Talk to 
the Editor in the gather information section.  Once you give him the story you 
can read the first chapter you have.  Head to Clain Village and speak to Hans.

"Hans..."

 - Why don't we help investigate?
 - Hatred will only consume you
 - Hatred can give you a rush!

Choose to help investigate.  Go to gather information and talk to the child, 
he will give you Story #2.  Now return to N Rottenbaum village.  Assuming 
you've done all this it will bring you into a series of events.

~* Haute Mail *~

   Completion Conditions:               Game Over Conditions:

 - All enemies destroyed              - Wein is destoryed
                                      - The Mysterious Soldier escapes
   Enemies:

 - Mysterious Soldier (Lv6)           - Mysterious Soldier (Lv6)

When this battle begins the first thing you should do is take the advice and 
run Northeast to the raised area.  Position your three characters on the hill 
so that Wein is in front, as he is the only one with a short ranged attack.  
Use three Attack up spells on Wein to pump up his strength so that he can take 
on the two soldiers by the time they arrive.  They will hit hard so switch 
Charlone to healing duty from here.  Have Wein attack one of the soldiers with 
Hans, just focus on a single enemy the whole time.  They have a fair amount of 
health, approximately 150 each.  Once one goes down the objective of the 
battle changes, however it becomes much easier.  you must prevent the soldier 
from escaping.  Where you currently are on the map is a good position for 
this, simply switch everyone to targeting the soldier for attack.  Since he 
won't attack at this point only run away, it's a free kill assuming you don't 
let him get too far.  As long as he doesn't escape you'll get the Mission 
Complete.

 ~* End of Battle *~

"Perhaps it was a sand golem?"

 - That sounds reasonable
 - I don't think that's it
 - No, I think it was ghosts

The first option changes nothing, the second increases your relationship meter 
with Charlone and the third will decrease it with Charlone if you choose the 
second following option.

After the fight you'll receive the Marauder's Remains.  On the world map head 
West and then North to the South ruins.  Select them for a scene between Wein 
and Charlone, afterward you'll receive Story #3.  Now go West to Grassland.

"Did you promise to meet her that day?"

 - Yes, I did
 - I just couldn't keep it.
 - ...

The first and third options raise your relationship meter with Charlone, the 
second lowers Hans'.

Continue along the path on the map.  When you come to a fork you need to make 
a decision.  Either way will net you a character later in the game, but they 
are two different characters.  The one you get for going West to South Lost 
Forest is far more important than the one you get for going North so if it's 
you first playthrough I strongly recommend going to South Lost Forest.


Go to the East Lost Forest and select it for a scene.

"Well..."

 - Okay, but hurry
 - We're on a mission remember?
 - We'll go with you Hans

The first and third raise your relationship with Hans, the second lowers it.  
The first raises it with Charlone, the others lower it.

Go to Agriss village and talk to the soldier.  When he asks if you've seen the 
dam select 'no' and a new path will appear.

Back on the world map continue your trek North to Grandshill.  When you arrive 
go to general information and speak with Arena Fan, he will bestow upon you 
Story #4.  Head up to South Rachel and select it, a student will come and talk 
to your and end the conversation by giving you Story #6.  Now head to the

There's more enemies here than you've ever fought before.  Start the battle by 
focusing everyone on one of the three congregated groups of enemies, 
preferably the ones at the South corner.  At same point no matter how hard you 
try you're going to be surrounded by enemies for a few turns, at this point it 
is wise to convert either Hans or Charlone to a full time healer to keep your 
HP up.  Save the boss for last, because you don't want to have little enemies 
picking at you while you're trying to focus on one character.  Soon enough two 
more Bone Goelms will join the fray but they come in near the top, at this 
point you can have Charlone pick them off before they even have a chance to 
attack.  

 ~* End of Battle *~

Now head to the Southern checkpoint and go to general information.  Speak with 
the Time Bandit.  He'll cast a spell on you that will allow you to see in a 
battle how much time you have left to obtain special rings.  The more 
challenging the enemy the better the ring they carry so if you encounter a 
very challenging enemy it may be a good idea to defeat them before the timer 
runs out.  Go North to Agriss Village.  After the scene contine North to the 
Dam.  Following a scene you'll next find yourself in North Agriss Village.

~* Escape *~

   Completion Conditions:               Game Over Conditions:

 - Avoid killing soldiers and escape  - Any party member destroyed
                                      - More than 4 soldiers killed
   Enemies:

 - Fiend Soldier (lv3)                - Fiend Soldier (lv4)

 - Fiend Soldier (Lv3)

Despite what you are told about splitting up I recommend sending everyone 
downward right at the beginning.  Use Dash with any characters who have it, 
the tech will be a lifesaver.  Run South and get as close to the South border 
as you can, you'll have to contend with two soldiers however if you kill them 
to get them out of your way, you'll still fall within your 4 soldier grace for 
this mission.  Many more soldiers will appear soon after, but if you head 
straight for the bottom you should be able to escape before they even appear.  
If you're going for a Mission Complete it isn't going to be easy.  I still 
recommend the same strategy I just outlined however there's one important 
detail.  When moving South you may think it best to make a path as short as 
possible, cutting the corners tightly however this will only hinder you later.  
There's are two soldiers who will be coming up to meet you and if you're 
moving right past the corner of the rock, you'll meet them face to face and 
get stuck there.  To avoid this send your characters a little ways off the 
corner of the rock South of you so that while the path is a bit longer you 
should be able to make it there uninterrupted.  It is very important to update 
your path often depending on changes in enemy movement.  Never take the time 
to heal, this is just a mad dash.  If you Charlone is anything like mine she 
doesn't have Dash which will make it very hard for her.  More important than 
anyone else is Charlone's route, be absolutely sure she never has an enemy in 
her way.

 ~* End of Battle *~

There are three outcomes of this battle, Mission Complete, Mission Clear and 
Mission Failed.  Mission Complete occurs if you kill no soldiers, Mission 
Clear if you kill a couple and Mission Failed if you kill four or more 
soldiers.  I was able to get past the soldiers without killing them so the 
walkthrough will continue under that assumption.

"Charlone..."

 - I apologize for getting you into this
 - (If she talks it out, maybe she'll feel better)
 - How is this my fault?

The first will raise your relationship with Charlone, the second does nothing 
and the third lowers it.

You'll automatically be taken to your next destination.

"Well..."

 - That sounds great!
 - I told you not to worry!
 - (She's so selfish... what about Karene?)

The first raises your relationship with Charlone and Xenos, the second lowers 
it with Charlone and the third does nothing.

Once you're on the world map again, select Grandshill and confer with Xenos.  
Head to the Magic Academy and you can confer with Xenos again.  There's a 
scene up North at South Rachel.

"What should I do?"

 - Shout "Stop hiding and show yourself!"
 - Ask "What do you want?"
 - Ignore the feeling and move on.

If you choose the second two nothing happens, if you choose the first it says 
you can hear footsteps but nothing happens again, you're returned to the world 
map.  You can talk to Xenos a third time at the Time & Space Tower.  Proceed 
to Forth Rargin and watch the scene, then onward to Agriss Village.  After the 
scene go to gather information and talk to the Field Worker to receive Story
#5.  Contonue North to the Border Mountain Interior.

                                      - Get too close to Karene
                                      - Xenos is defeated
                                      - Hans is defeated
   Enemies:                           - Wein is defeated

 - Spearman (Lv8)                     - Spearman (Lv8)

If you have Thievery you can steal a decent gem from Xenos.  After a couple of 
turns in battle Xenos will whisper to you.  Your goal becomes to have Hans 
escape from battle.  In order to trigger his escape you must send Wein over to 
him, this will start a conversation and Hans will run away.  During this time 
set Wein and Charlone to Defend.  AFter a few turns Hans will show up once 
again at the top of the cliff, now is when the battle really begins.  Hans 
will be all by himself for awhile but he should be able to kill the spearman, 
to ensure this have someone cast Cycle on him to speed up his turns.  Send 
everyone up towards the top and begin taking out all the enemies as you go, 
focus everyone (except Hans) on one specific character at a time as you go to 
eliminate them as quickly as possible.  The main enemy has a surprisingly low 
amount of HP so if you want to eliminate him sooner rather than later there's 
nothing wrong with that.  The battle ends when all the mercenaries are dead.  
For Mission Complete simply do not allow any casualties.

 - Demi Yung (Lv6)                    - Demi Yung (Lv6)
 - Yung (lv10)

There are quite a few enemies who won't go down too easily here.  Your primary 
goal is to protect the villagers so utilize the following technique.  Don't 
worry too much about support magic, set everyone to attack the Yung that is 
closest to the villagers except for Charlone, have her attack the Demi Yung 
that is closest, within a couple of turns she should have it taken care of and 
then she can start attacking the normal Yung that everyone else is aiming for.  
Once you have elimanted the two cloests Yungs set you party to move right up 
to the path leading to the shelter, but don't block it as there is still one 
more girl coming.  By now an additional Yung has probably joined the battle, 
this Yung as well as the one at the upper left corner run the risk of 
attacking the remaining girl so focus your attacks on the one who most 
currently holds the most dangerous position.  Soon enough another woman will 
join the battle, you cannot attack her don't worry about it but some of her 
attacks can be absolutely devastating.  Change Hans from an attacker to a 
healer to keep yourself alive, once all the Yungs are dead the battle ends and 
the villagers are safe.  Assuming none of them died you get the Mission 
Complete.

 ~* End of Battle *~

Watch the scene after the battle.

(What do we do?)

 - I think we can protect her well enough
 - We can't guarentee her safety
 - It's too dangerous to consider

The first two options will increase your relationship with Riviera, the last 
will decrease it.

Obviously I'd say agreeing is a good choice.  Back on the world map select 
Agriss Village and speak with Riviera and Xenos.  Head to Fort Rargin and 
select it for a scene with  Riviera.  You can speak with her yet again at 
Grandshill, and once again at the dam North of Agriss Village.  

"It's completely destroyed isn't it?"

 - Yes I can't believe such cruelty...
 - I shall find the party responsible
 - Your concern for your people is admirable

Every option you choose will increase your relationship with Riviera.

If you too kthe South Lost Forest path the first time and stayed in the cabin, 
return there now to speak with Ernest again.

"What, shall we bow and acknowledge you a Growlanser?"

 - I will be called Growlanser
 - You can call me that if you like
 - That's not appropriate
 - I'm not even in that league

Choose "I will be called Growlanser" if you wish to recruit him (eventually.)

When you are ready to proceed select the Border Mountain Interior.  Watch the 
scene here.

"There's only one pill left, and Charlone needs to go to the Unicorn Knight 
 Ceremony.  What now?"

 - Stay and regain my strength
 - Tell Charlone to go on ahead
 - Press onward to Comsprings

Select to pres onward for best results.  On the world map again select the 
Mountain Interior for a scene.  Go to the Mountain Depths and speak to the 
hunter there, agree to test his energy topic and in the morning he'll give you 
Story #7.  Go North to Comsprings.

 - Thug (lv9)                         - Thug (Lv9)
 - Thug (lv9)

Now this battle is far from easy, there's so many enemies and you really have 
to go out of your way to hit them.  Fortunately Riviera and Charlone are not 
bound by the envirnoment and should start fighting right off the bat, have 
Riviera chant some powerful magic and get Charlone to aim her bow up to those 
obnoxious wizards.  With a combination of Charlone's bow and Riviera's magic 
you should be able to take down the two wizards quickly.  While you're doing 
all this use Dash with your other characters and send them West towards the 
stairs.  Around this time some thugs will appear, two on the West and one near 
you ranged attackers.  Turn your ranged attackers toward these thugs and your 
melee attackers toward the two to the west (this includes Hans.)  The thugs 
are incredibly proficient at defending against your attacks, the ability "Hit 
Up" may prove very useful for this battle.  Once they're dead turn your ranged 
attacers back towards the top, focus on the commander who is very powerful as 
well as the archers.  Finally you need to take aim at the Secretary with what 
little strength you have left.  In order to get the Mission Complete here, you 
cannot have any villagers or characters die, the Messenger will run away, but 
that is part of what has to happen.

 - Demi Yung (Lv7)                    - Demi Yung (Lv7)

This battle will be easier to beat than the last, and a lot harder to get a 
Mission Complete on.  You'll notice there are many chests all around the 
ruins, well all the Yungs i nthis battle have one goal, to run to the treasure 
and then escape, this means of course that if you want to win easily simply go 
after Arieta and let all the Yungs escape.  This however isn't an option for 
those who want to complete the mission fully.  Every enemy you defeat will 
give you a piece of trasure that they got from the chests so it really is a 
good idea.  In order to get perfect here though you'll have to follow some 
very specific rules.  First of all set your melee fighters to attack the 
nearest Yung.  Have Charlone aim her bow at one of the two Demi Yungs, she 
should be able to kill it in one hit.  Have Riviera cast some level 2-3 magic 
on as many enemies as you can.  Once Arieta starts attacking you'll need 
Riviera as a full time healer.  It's debatable whether you should kill Arieta 
first, she doesn't have too much HP but your attacks will only give the Yungs 
more time to run.  Personally I killed Arieta before all the Yungs solely 
because her attacks are so powerful, you still have time.  Each time you 
defeat a Yung go after the ones that are at most risk of getting away.  The 
typical tactics of focusing all your attacks on one enemy at a time has no use 
here, you'll really have to spread out in order to stop them all.  Wein should 
have that Lv8 Hyper attack gem on at this point in the game, there have been 
at least 1-2 rings capable of holding the gem.  Assuming you are able to 
defeat all the enemies without them escaping, or you suffering any casualties 
you will get a congratulatory Mission Complete.

 ~* End of Battle *~

(How can I make her understand?"

 - I'm doing you a favor
 - You need to keep the promise to your brother
 - This is my order as Captain

If you choose the second option, your relationship increases with Charlone, 
the third choice decreases and the first does nothing.

Head to Starkberg and speak with Hans.  If you head to NW Rottenbaum Village 
and select it there's a fun little comment from Hans.  If you go to Clain 
Village you'll see the merchant's daughter has finally convinced her father to 
let her open a gem shop there, you may remember a comment from her earlier 
saying she wanted to.  Her inventory is rather pathetic though.  Return to 
Burnstein Capital and watch the scene.  Afterwards speak with Charlone there.

If you pressed on and Charlone made it into the Unicorn Knights, go visit her 
house in Starkberg.

"I think..."

 - Charlone had better stay here
 - Charlone can do as she pleases
 - You need to convince your father

Choose the first or second option to increase your relationship points with 
Charlone.  Speak with her again at Starkberg.

"I'm sorry captain, my fater is opinionated but he often comes off as rude."

 - You can say that again
 - Don't worry about it
 - I'm more concerned with you

Select the second or third option here for best relationship results.


     *** Very Important ***

During the next few events there will be scenes that occur at certain times 
when you walk around on the map.  At one point a scene involving Wolfgang will 
trigger, when it does an entire different branch in the game becomes 
available.  Continue playing up to the point, if you wish to take this branch 
scroll all the way down to the Wolfgang section or Ctrl+f search for (wlfGN).

The stores at Burnstein have restocked, be sure to check them out.

Now make your way to Burnstein W Capital.  After the event, you can confer 
with Xenos down at Clain Village.  The village chief also has something new to 
say.  Go to N Rottenbaum Village and select it, you should get a message from 
Wein:

"It's getting late.  Should we..."

 - Prepare Camp
 - Investigate Further

"What will you do, Captain?"

 - Help Xenos
 - Help Riviera

Your relationship will go up with whomever you choose.

There's a scene with whomever you choose.  Go South to Rottenbaum Village and 
speak to the Starving Boy, then North to Schwarzfals Village to speak with 
Hans.  You'll soon be sent into an event in the village.  You'll get some 
Sweet Potatoes as well.  On the world map again go to the gather information 
section and speak to the Student, he'll give you Story #8.  Return to 
Startberk and speak to Hans, he'll give away the Sweet Potatoes to the 
orphans.  Check the gather information section in Starkberg and read the sign.  
Return to Rottenbaum Village and tell the Starving Boy about the job 
oppurtunity there.  Continue North to the Ruins.  Speak to the Peddler and a 
new path will open up leading to Zauerberg.  Go there and talk to the Affluent 
Girl, here's another oppurtunity to tell someone about the shop oppurtunities 
at Starkberg.  Speak to the Suspicious Man:

"Hey there, buddy, you look like you got money to burn.  If you pay me, I'll 
 tell you a secret:"

 - Go on...
 - You're wasting my time!

Choose "Go on..." and then talk to him again.  Exit the menu for a 
conversation between your characters.  At this point when you check your 
available options again at this town you can now visit the Secret Arena.  Go 
to the shop menu and choose 'Search.'  For 20 Elm you can buy Story #10 here.

At this point head directly to (it's either the Central Checkpoint or the 
Magic Academy) and talk to the people there.  One of them should give you 
Story #11 but the window for getting it is very small.

Don't worry about the arena for now.  Be sure you visit Comsprings and talk to 
Inn Guest under the gather information heading, she'll give you Story #9.  
Talk to the White Robed Woman as well.  Try staying at the inn, a scene might 
trigger when you do involving Riviera and Charlone talking about taking a bath 
in the hot springs together.  Check out the Central Checkpoint and then confer 
with Xenos at Valmie Mining Town to the North.  Speak to the people in the 
gather information section and some new options will appear.  Talk to Charlone 
about the mysterious lookalike, then confer with Xenos again.

Leave the town and return to Starkberg, talk to the New Guard.  Head West to 
the ruins from the beginning of the game:

"Hmm... there have been strange sightings here..."

 - Investigate
 - Leave

Investigate these "sightings" in the ruins.

   Completion Conditions:               Game Over Conditions:

   Enemies:

 - Werecat (Lv18)                     - Reptilian (Lv17)

 - Armor Crab (Lv18)                  - Armor Crab (Lv18)
 - Bone Golem (Lv17)

Another very challenging battle bere.  The werecat has three reptile enemies 
with her, these enemies get two attacks per turn and have a special attack 
capable of targeting more than one party member.  You must eliminate these 
enemies first before they have a chance to kill anyone.  There are also quite 
a few enemies up top, this will be Riviera's job.  The Piranhatazoa's are 
immune to physical attacks, so have her start a Lv3 Blizzard spell, when you 
use it on them not only will it kill them in one hit, but also any of those 
armor crab enemies in range as well since they are weak to ice, you can 
devastate the entire upper area of the map with this spell.  During all this 
you need to have someone use the Dash tech and begin running up.  Watch out 
for the moving wall and try and lure the werecat away from it, you don't want 
her being killed.  Get your fastest character to the switch and pull it to 
stop the spike wall.  Once it's gone and all the enemies are eliminated have 
Wein defeat the werecat, if all goes well you should get a speech bubble.

"What now?"

 - Ask to give her a name
 - Ask her to be friends
 - Let her

Select "Ask her to be friends" for best results.

 ~* End of Battle *~

Around this point (or maybe before this) you'll be interrupted with a scene at 
a random location, just watch it.

I believe there is a path branch here, instead of going to Clain Village at 
this point head to Schwarzfals Village and stay at the inn.  There will be a 
scene with an injured man who speaks of your father.  From there you can go 
off to some other towns and locations speaking to people, and then return 
later to the inn to speak with the man again.  When he says something about 
Wolfgang make your way to the Southern checkpoint to continue... at this time 
the guide will contine assuming you do not follow this route, and that you now 
hear to Clain Village instead of Schwarzfals.

Make your way to Clain Village and go to the Mansion.  Return to Starkberg and 
speak to the guard.  Now head to Burnstein Capital and speak with Riviera.  Go 
to gather information and talk to the senior officer.  He'll give you Story 
#12.  Now select to go to the castle, you'll get a new mission and a new 
character, Carmaine as well as the item 'Letter to the Front' and 10,000 Elm.  
Return to Starkberg and speak with the two people you told to try and find 
jobs here.  Also choose to go to the Claudius mansion:

"Will you come to my home?"

 - Accept the invitation
 - Not time to dally, rush ahead!

You'll notice that because of these two people, the stores have been 
completely restocked with new armor and gems.

Go North to North Starkberg and you'll decide to set up camp.

(He just laughed, I think...)

 - Did I give bad directions?
 - What's the matter?
 - Laughing at people is rude!

There's a new person to talk to under gather information at Zauerberg.  Same 
deal at Comsprings as well, talk to the Inn Guest and Irene.  Following that 
speak to Riviera.

"What's on your mind?  Do you wish to bathe in the hot springs together?"

 - Are you kidding? Yes!
 - Please don't tempt me

Go North to Valmie Mine Town and speak with everyone in the gather information 
section, and then Carmaine.  Make your way all the way back to Burnstein W 
Capital and go to the Outlook.  There is a flashback scene here.

"Doesn't that seem... wrong to you?"

 - Yes, I see your point
 - I disagree
 - I don't see it as black and white

You can talk to Riviera and some Street Urchin at Burnstein, same deal at 
Clain Village with Carmaine and the Village Chief.  Now move to Rottenbaum and 
speak to both people in the gather information section, especially the Angry 
Farmer.  After doing so stay the night at the inn, there's a scene involving 
the catgirl from the ruins before.  Talk to the Angry Farmer again in the 
morning.  There's a quick message from Carmaine at the NW Rottenbaum Field, 
and one from Wein at the Southern Ruins.  Afterwards select the Grasslands 
which will trigger an event.

"I know you're protecting her,"

 - Don't worry, I won't hurt her
 - I'm in a hurry, I must pass!
 - You're in the way, move!

Regardless of which choice you pick, the actions and outcome of the scene that 
follows is the same.  Go all the way North to the Magic Academy now for a 
scene.

"...I just hope Misha hasn't caused too much trouble for them."

 - Is your sister still here?
 - Is Misha the girl with the pigtails?
 - She has a strong demeanor

It's time to return to Schwarzfals Village.

 - Yung (Lv16)                        - Yung (Lv14)
 - Yung (Lv14)

This battle will not be easy to achieve a mission complete on.  In order to do 
so you need to focus your attacks on the Yungs and protect the villagers, 
Arieta will not attack the villagers so do not worry about her at all.  Before 
the battle go to Starkberg and in the new Gem shop there is a gem called New 
Horizons, this gives ranged attack an infinite range, equip one on Hans and 
possibly Charlone as well (Also equip an Art of Thievery one one of them and 
attack Arieta.)  Midway through the battle when you know that all the 
villagers are no longer at risk, even if there are still some Yungs remaining 
you must start attacking Arieta.  She will move slowly West to the shack 
housing the magic artifacts, once she reaches it it will take her one turn to 
cast a magic lock opening spell, and another turn to escape with it.  If you 
want Mission Complete do NOT let her escape.

"But...!"

 - I'm positive you're not Arieta!
 - A... are you the real Arieta?
 - Well, that's another way of looking at this

 ~* End of Battle *~

On the world map again select Schwarzfals Village and opt to go to the 
treasure storehouse.

"Uh...n...nothing.  I just wanted to get something for my friend."

 - Who is your friend?
 - Does it belong to you?
 - Can I give you a new name yet?

The option you want to choose is "Does it belong to you?"  Following this 
another conversation will occur.

"I've been looking for my mother ever since, hoping she's still alive..."

 - So, why don't you have a name?
 - Can we help you look for your mother?

Choose "So why don't you have a name?" for best results.  Select Schwarzfals 
Village again and talk to the student to receive Story #13.  Go to Starkberg 
and choose "See city at night" for another catgirl event.  There's also a 
brand new scene at the West Starkberg Ruins.  Afterwards make your way to the 
Grasslands to the Southwest.

"In the last encounter with Arieta, didn't it seem like she was two different 
people?

 - I don't want to think that was her
 - So it's as I suspected?
 - I'm still not sure

Watch the rest of the scene.  

There's an optional battle now, at the Southern Checkpoint, it is also where 
you can choose to branch to Woflgang's path found below.  If you head to the 
Southern checkpoint you'll fight the following battle if you turn Wolfgang 
down.  You must win this battle if you wish to get Ernest later.

Note: Wolfgang will only ask you join join him if you have received
"Mission Complete" on every battle up to this point (excluding the
very first training battle.)

~* Independence Day *~

   Completion Conditions:               Game Over Conditions:

You have the option of escaping, but you must defeat all the enemies to 
complete the battle.  Protect your spellcasters by moving them in with your 
stronger characters.  There are two magicians who can only be targetted by 
magic at the top.  Once all the ground troops are eliminated, two more archers 
will appear near the gate.  Defeat all of these enemies to get the Mission 
Complete.

 ~* End of Battle *~


Now head North of Starkberg to the ruins and you'll be brought into an event.

~* Feline Fascination *~

   Completion Conditions:               Game Over Conditions:

 - Enemies destroyed                  - Wein Destroyed

   Enemies:

 - Litch (Lv26)                       - Piranhatazoa (Lv17)
 - Piranhatazoa (Lv17)                - Hellhound (Lv22)
 - Hellhound (Lv22)                   - Gargoyle (Lv21)
 - Gargoyle (Lv21)

To get a Mission Complete here you will have to keep Storm#3 alive.  Begin the 
battle by casting a Lv3 infinite range ice spell with Riviera, and have 
everyone else who has it use Dash.  Target the Litch for attack and begin 
running toward him.  Use Hans and Charlone to target those imps and eliminate 
them before they can reach Storm#3.  She will take lots of damage no matter 
how good you are, use the ice spell on one of the Pirahnatazoas to kil it in 
one hit, then immediately change to a cure spell.  Have Riviera continually 
casting Cure spells for the rest of the battle.  Kill the Hellhounds first as 
they are dangerous, and afterwards aim all your attacks at the Litch.  When 
you heal Storm#3 she'll begin talking to you, soon after the next time she's 
attacked you'll have some choices.

"Oh no, I'm not ready to die!"

 - No, leave her be
 - Tell her to defend herself
 - Tell her to get over here
 - Tell her to run to the southwest

Send her Southwest to keep her safe and continue to attack all the enemies.  
The most dangerous part of this battle is a spell the Litch has which he does 
not use very often, but when her does it deals around 90 damage to every 
single one of your characters, it's the Quake spell.  It's so devastating you 
may even have to reload your game until a battle where he doesn't cast it.  
Once all the enemies are dead and Storm#3 remains alive, you get a Mission 
Complete.

 ~* End of Battle *~

This marks the end of the catgirl sidequest, your reward is a very nice Lv9 
Transport Wings gem, which gives infinite range for ranged attacks, and does 
not allow any obstacles to impede it.

Return to Burnstein Capital and enter the shop to trigger a scene.

"Riviera?"

 - Try getting her attention
 - She just needs some alone time
 - Butt out

"What's wrong Riviera?"

 - Are you meeting your sister?
 - Aren't you going with the others?

Head up to the Magic Academy and choose to check on Armor Analysis, after a 
conversation a new option to go to Ariost's Lab appears, choose it.

"Hmm... 5,000 Elm?"

 - That's too much to waste on a thoery
 - It's a bargain if you're hypothesis is true!

Might as well fun his operation assuming you have the Elm.  Go to gather 
information and talk to Misha.  This finally concludes all the optional stuff 
in this area.  It's finally time to proceed further, make your way to North 
Granshill.

"Is that so hard to understand?"

 - No, I understand your despair
 - There is always another way
 - Leadership is the key to peace, Max

Confer with Xenos and Maximillia at North Grandshill.  Don't forget to visit 
the shops as well and gather information.

 - Spearman (Lv18)                    - Battalion Commander (Lv20)

When this battle begins you may find yourself a bit confused, there are no 
enemies on the field at all.  Begin walking towards the centre of the map and 
soon non-surprisingly an ambush occurs, however only with two archers.  This 
means you need to start targeting them with your ranged attackers and begin 
charging some cure spells with Riviera, the supply bird might-as-well-be-a-
Chocobo things have very little HP, so you will need to heal them constantly.  
After the archers of defeated it is only a short time before you are ambushed 
again by six enemies.  Three powerful melee attackers and three mages, the 
mages will die in two long range hits no problem and will cause trouble when 
their magic gets around to resolving.  Keep all the other enemies away from 
your supply birds if you wish to solidify your Mission Complete, make sure 
everyone who can has used Dash to minimize the delay between fighting one 
enemy to the next and whatever you do, spread out.  Send one person after each 
enemy individually, just make absolutely sure they're all occupied with your 
party and not your animals.

Head to the East Lost Forest and select the icon, you'll receive Tippi's 
Diary.  Now proceed to South Grandshill.

Note: If you are trying to get Ernest in your party, head to the South Lost 
Forest at the next chance you have to go there, this is the final thing you 
need to do assuming you have done what is required to recruit him.  I will not 
go into the exact details because I myself did not recruit him, but this is 
what you need to do.

It's nice to have an easy battle once in awhile, well at least I assume you'll 
find this easy.  First of all don't go into this battle without the Lv8 Hyper 
Attack gem you got from max at the beginning of the game, you'll be fighting 
this one all by yourself.  With the Hyper Attack gem and a couple others that 
boost strength you should be able to kill every one of these enemies in one 
turn, meaning at the beginning of the battle use your Dash tech and just keep 
attacking from person to person.  You shouldn't take much more than double 
digit damage here, forget heal spells.  Now when you've killed about seven 
people your objective will change to returning back to the top of the map, 
this however is the coward's way out.  If you want the Mission Complete you 
need to stay and kill every single enemy that appears (there's only about 9 of 
them) it's not too hard at all.

You don't exactly have many destination options here, head to the Time & Space 
tower.  You'll see someone familiar here and be brought to a different kind of

 - Yung (Lv18)

This will be your hardest battle thus far.  At the moment I'm not even sure 
how to get a Mission Complete on this fight so unless you can figure it out 
you'll have to settle for a Mission Clear.  There's one giant enemy at the 
North side, I would estimate he has upwards of 2000 HP.  You'll need to begin 
the battle by casting Cycle Up and Attack Up on all your characters.  Ignore 
the Yungs, go on a complete offensive and destroy the boss before they are 
even able to reach you.  The battle starts off with 8 Yungs and 3 more will 
going the battle every few minutes, finally ending with about 18 total before 
they stop.  I have killed every last Yung that appears and then the boss and 
the rating is no different, so I don't recommend you try it.  Use everything 
you have on the boss, use your most powerful magic and attacks, equip your 
most powerful gems.  None of his attacks are too devastating, his breath will 
deal about 50 damage to everyone but he rarely uses it.  Destroy the boss to 
end the battle.

It has come to my attention that there are different options for this fight is 
you have witnessed the scenes necessary for Arieta's ending.  The following 
strategy was submitted very generously by Vendetta Morendo:

1. Try to equip everyone with some form of HP Recovery Gem. You might consider 
MP recovery gems as well for Riviera and Charlone, but they probably won't be 
necessary. HP is more important, considering the damage that can be dished out 
here and the amount of waiting you have to do before Arieta can be revived. 
You may also consider equipping a gem that saps HP from the enemy with your 
attacks (like Blood Blade, I think) to your fighters if you don't have enough 
HP recovery items. Hans should have a Hyper Attack equipped, which will be 
very valuable. He usually has the shortest ATW, and thus can get more attacks 
in than the others.

2. Equip Xenos, Carmaine, and Ernest (if you have him) with the heaviest, 
toughest armor you have available. (You may consider Hans, but it may also be 
nice to have him be able to move in on Gevas later for a quick kill) They 
shouldn't be moving too much except at the beginning of the fight, so it is 
more important for them to have endurance regardless of movement cost. If they 
must move fast, then use Dash wisely.

3. At the beginning of the fight, clear out everyone away from the center so 
that that fire attack can't hit very many targets. I recommend sending Xenos 
straight down at Gevas along with Sereb, then Ernest/Brett and Charlone to the 
left, and then Carmaine, Hans, Riviera (and of course Wein) to the right.

4. You can begin attacking Gevas whenever you wish with Xenos, just remember 
that you can't kill him until you revive Arieta. Be careful about that.

5. Wein should be dashing at all times. Ernest/Brett and Carmaine should be 
doing nothing but attacking Yungs coming from their respective sides for the 
entire fight. Hans should be assisting Carmaine at the start of battle.

6. Once in position Riviera ought to be constantly casting shield and Charlone 
ought to be constantly casting cure/healing. Even if no one is injured, at 
least have cure charging and ready to use as soon as you are out of the 
central area and on one of the ramps. Riviera needs to boost Sereb's defense 
as fast as possible (remember, a single character can only take up to three 
cumulative), then Carmaine and Ernest/Brett, and the rest at your disgression. 
If you have everyone with shields up you can either start casting attack up 
spells, or start up another shield spell and hold it until Arieta is revived 
and Wein returns, then cast it on them.

Charlone should never, ever stop casting recovery spells for any reason 
whatsoever.

7. If Carmaine and Ernest/Brett aren't killing Yungs fast enough and you think 
they'll get past them and start beating up Charlone and Riviera, be sure to 
have someone use Bait so that they will ignore the women and they can continue 
pumping out the spells uninterrupted.

8. Once Wein returns, get him over to Gevas ASAP and start whooping on his 
ass. Get Hans over to him as fast as possible too and within range - Carmaine 
should be alright by himself by now anyways.

9. Move Arieta into the left or right ramp as soon as possible. Get shields 
casted on her as soon as possible. Then, what you do with her at that point 
depends on the state of the battle. If things are going well and the Yung are 
being well supressed, just have her defend and stay put. If you really need 
the help, though, have her cast attack spells.

 ~* End of Battle *~

After the fight there is a scene.  On the world map select the Grasslands 
location.  There are small conversations at both NW Rottenbaum Village and 
South Ruins.  You can talk to Brett Varner at Schwarzfals Village.  If you 
wish you can go all the way up to the Magic Academy and read Tippi's Diary, 
but there's no rush.  Your primary destination is Burnstein Capital.  Head 
there and watch the scene, you will receive 15,000 Elm.

There will be a new scene now available at the West Starkberg Ruins assuming 
you have the right party members.  Now make your way back to Zauerberg, if you 
finished the catgirl sidequest there will be a person in the gather 
information section called Gentle Uncle, speak to him.

"If you don't mind, can you tell me how you got it?"

 - I defeated a monster
 - I got it from a cat girl
 - I'll never tell

Tell the man the truth and it will trigger a scene.  Now head to Comsprings.

There's quite a few enemies here, and a fat lot of civilians so you need to 
gain the upper hand as quickly as possible.  Someone at the beginning of the 
battle should be the dedicated stat booster, to cast spells like Attack Up and 
Cycle Up.  I used Charlone.  Have Hans and Charlone when she's finished take 
aim at the enemies on the lower level beside the guards and attack them for 
the entire battle, as well have all your magic casters tageting those enemies 
as well, except one who should be a dedicated healer and keep all your troops 
as well as battle allies alive.  Send maybe one melee attacker down the stairs 
to help, but no more.  You should have at least two sent to the Northwest 
corner of the map because very soon three more soldiers will appear there, as 
well as one from the Southwest at the bottom of the stairs.  Once you've 
eliminated about five or so of them, they'll switch to a retreat tactic.  I'll 
tell you now that in order to get a Mission Complete on this map you do not 
need to kill them all, two of them escaped from the battle and I still 
received a Mission Complete (with the sword as well.)  The important thing is 
that every party member, battle ally and civilian remain alive, so focus on 
keeping their HP above dangerous levels.

Head North to North Comsprings and you'll be brought into a scene if you have 
Brett Varner in your party.

Every single enemy here with the exception of one is a prominent magic user, 
so head up to Valmie Mining Town and purchase Dispel gems for your entrie 
party.  Without the use of their magic the enemies will be very hard pressed 
to hurt you.  The ground on this map begins to disappear as you go, you only 
need to kill all the enemies to get a mission complete, you don't need to move 
anyone to specific spots so focus on that.  Anyone who is a ranged attacker or 
magic user should never leave the starting stone platform in order to remain 
safest, just snipe the main armor enemy through the little crack the whole 
time and have the magic users pick off those Spook orbs with Lv4 Ice Barrages.  
Split your attackers into two groups, use Dash, and send them in both 
direction, killing all the enemies as you go along, you should be able to stay 
ahead of the floor.  Make your way around to the middle in the end, when you 
defeat the armor the battle ends and you get the Mission Complete.

In order to get Mission Complete on this map you don't want any enemies to 
escape, that may sound extremely difficult given their numbers but it's 
actually rather easy if you know the trick.  There are eight Neural Armor 
enemies total, four near the top and four near the bottom.  The Southern most 
four have pods on them, each time one is killed a corresponding one of the 
four North Neural Armors also dies, so your goal becomes simple.  Focus all 
your offenses on the lower four armors and don't even attack the upper ones at 
all.  The human enemies can be killed too if they get in your way.  Put 
Charlone on stat pumping duty, Cycle everyone up and then start using Lv9 
Attack Up spells, giving three of your characters a 3x boost to attack each 
time you use it, it'll turn you into a force to be reckoned with.  Combine 
this with your most powerful rings and some of those gems that are now 
available at starkberg and you'll have the battle over in no time.

After the battle, the Starkberg shops have once again stocked up, speak to the

 - Archer (Lv22)                      - Archer (Lv22)

In this mission you need to get Wein to infiltrate past all the enemies, 
however if he jumps the fence an enemy will see him and be spotted.  For this 
reason you need to use your party to help distract them.  In order to get a 
Mission Complete on this mission you must minimize your kills, however some 
are inevitable.  At the beginning of the battle use all your ranged attackers, 
the three enemies you'll need to kill are the two archers and the magician.  
Start moving Wein to the West.  Every one of your normal melee attackers 
should stay where they are and defend, don't move anyone towards the enemies 
except for Wein.  Soon enough the enemies at the gate will get cocky and start 
coming after you, let them.  It is also important to leave on of the three 
people, archers or mage alive while the other enemies are coming toward you, 
the magician is best to keep alive.  Once they reach you have Wein run to the 
fence and jump over it, now use your magic or archer to kill the remaining 
magician.  This will cause the enemies to panic and run back, however if Wein 
is already over the fence and has the Dash tech in effect, he'll be able to 
escape no problem before being detected.  Once he gets away you need to have 
your party escape, but since you never moved from where you started it's a 
mere few steps away.  Simple as that for the Mission Complete.

 - Magician (Lv20)

At the start of this battle you will be undetected but that doesn't holdtrue 
for long.  There is however a lare advantage you get for being undetected at 
the moment, you'll be able to cast one spell of any level instantly.  I would 
recommend starting the battle by casting Lv3 Attack Up on Wein, the instant 
you cast the spell the enemies will notice you.  Head right and up the path, 
kill the spearman there.  As you go up you'll be approached by the remaining 
two enemies, eliminate them so only the archer remains, now run into the room 
on the right and set it ablaze (you should have Dash on for all this by the 
way.)  Now once you set it ablaze this is very important.  Start charging a 
powerful magic spell, around this time reinforcements are going to arrive and 
there will be two magicians with that that can cast Soul Force and devastate 
you, the second they arrive you should be able to cast something like Lv6 Fire 
Arrow and kill one of them off.  Immediately start charging another spell to 
kill the other one.  Now there's only one hard part left, the Battilion 
Commander can deal some heavy damage, find a way to kill him so that you still 
have some health left.  With only archers left you should be able to pick them 
off one by one no problem, Wein will have a very high blocking ratio for the 
arrows.  Kill all but on of the archers, just keep your HP up and let them 
attack you all you want.  Now you need to visit the four rooms and set them 
all on fire.  Once you've done so kill the last archer and you've got a one 
way ticket to a Mission Complete.  You'll also get some nice rewards from each 
of the rooms, they are:

North: Lv7 Teriaka
West: 25,000 Elm
South: Lv9 Double Rings
East: Lv9 All Attrib Def

Make sure you get all the items, considering they're free it's well worth it.

Now your only choice for a destination is the Southern Checkpoint, so go 
there.  Once you're back on the world map select either South Lost Forest or 
East Lost Forest, both trigger the exact same scene.  When it's over go to the 
gather information for whichever one you chose.  It will be either a husband 
or wife looking for their significant other who just happens to be at the 
opposite East/South Lost Forest so go to gather information for one, and then 
for the other.  When reunited they'll give you a Lv7 Miracle Trainee which is 
an incredible reward for such a simple task.  What it does is allow you to 
lower your level without lowering your stats, so that it'll be easier to level 
up but you'll just keep getting stronger.  There is a good shop available at 
the South Lost Forest that you shouldn't miss.  When ready continue to North

This is an absolutely incredibly hard battle, and I'm really not sure if 
there's any way to make it easy so I'll just outline the strategy I used in 
hopes of helping you get a mission complete.  First of all there's a few 
things you have to understand, starting with the boss.  He has an attack that 
shoots a beam down the middle that will poison you and on rare occasions 
paralyze you.  If you are in the rooms to the side you are safe from this 
attack.  Refine is a very important skill to have in this battle, the fight is 
long and poison will begin to deal more damage than the enemies themselves.  
If you go past the edge towards the boss, where the rooms stop you will be in 
range of his powerful melee attacks, stay away from here until you are good 
and ready.  As for the enemiesthere are many of them, and within a few turns 
three more will appear right where you start.  At the beginning of the battle 
move all your characters away from the entrance and hide your magic users as 
far back in the side rooms as possible, from there begin chanting all sorts of 
spells, Refine, Cure, Attack Up, Shield, Cycle Up you need them all.  Your 
melle attackers should use Dash and run North fighting and killing as many 
Neural Armors as possible before the three new armors show up.  When they do 
you'll need to turn around and kill them before they reach your spellcasters.  
You will notice he is charging a beam attack through the entire battle, you'll 
receive warnings every 25%, but the attack takes forever to charge and it's 
pretty much just putting a time limit on the battle, though a very long one.  
Once all the Neural Armors are dead, hide in the rooms and heal your entire 
party fully, you'll be completely safe from his attacks there.  Use this time 
also to collect the four treasure chests in each room, they contain some of 
the best gems in the game as well as one piece of armour.  The items are Lv9 
Holy Judgement, Lv8 Memory of Alviis, Lv9 Bellow Store and Brave Gauntlet.  
When you think you're ready make a mad dash towards the boss and only target 
his main body.  He will attack very fast so you'll have to heal constantly, 
the only way to keep up with him is to have Cycle Up on all your characters.  
His HP total is much much less than the boss at the top of the TIme & Space 
tower, I'd say 1000 max.  Keep hitting him and eventually he'll go down, you 
don't need to destroy his arms you'll still get a Mission Complete.  Just keep 
everyone alive.

 ~* End of Battle *~

Go to the Southern Checkpoint and examine it for a conversation with a man.

"Have you seen any young men in your travels that are good at making armor?"

 - Feign ignorance
 - Tell him about the boy

Return to Burnstein Capital.  After a scene you'll have the option of choosing 
someone to spend the day with, their friendship meter (viewable in the status 
meter) must be at maximum otherwise they will reject you and you'll have to 
fall back on a default... like Hans.  Following this another scene occurs in 
the castle again and you receive 30,000 Elm.

"And you will be at my side in this noble endeavor, right?"

 - Of course!
 - Max, this isn't right

There's a branch here, if you go with Max you'll fight some slightly different 
battles and get a different ending, if you go against Max again, a different 
branch.  Going against him is the more appropriate option so the walkthrough 
will continue as such.  If you choose to go with him scroll down to the next

There are a hell of a lot of enemies here, your spellcasters will be in the 
most danger to start.  Don't let them stand where they are, at the beginning 
of the battle move them behind your fighters.  Your primary attackers will 
each have to take on two soldiers a piece, which is fine as long as you cast 
some helpful spells on them.  Use Hans to snipe those wizards at the back who 
will charge for a very long time and let loose some powerful magic.  
Maximillian will escape, as will two of his lackeys, there's nothing you can 
do about this and it won't have any effect on your chance to get Mission 
Complete.  To do so all you have to do is defeat all the enemies, including 
Logan wihtout losing anyone.  It's not as easy as it sounds, but very 
possible.

You may find yourself very afraid at the beginning of this battle having to 
take on so many enemies with only two characters.  Fortunately for you the 
rest of your team appears after a couple of rounds.  The first thing you must 
do is equip the Lv9 Transport Wings on Charlone and kill the two magic casters 
that are hiding behind the walls, they will cast tornado which can cause 
extremely heavy damage to your party.  Once Charlone is done that convert her 
to a stat boosting magic user, have Riviera as a healer as well as one of your 
other characters, and let you melee characters run forward, they should be 
able to take out the small fry no problem.  Maximillian will cast magic that 
will hurt a lot which is why I recommend having at least two if not three 
healers for this battle.  Max doesn't have too much life so despite your time 
limit once you reach him he shouldn't be too hard to take down.  Simply 
killing everyone will net you the Mission Complete.

Return to Burnstein Capital whenever you wish.

Now sit back and enjoy the ending.

It's just a matter of killing your own party members (too bad.)  A Mission

After the fight there's a fair number of scenes to watch.  Once you have 
control again your destination is the North Lost Forest.

 - Male MP Officer (Lv24)             - Male MP Officer (Lv23)

This is a challenging battle because you can only control one member of your 
party.  As you progress through the fight you'll be able to control more and 
more people.  Carmaine will join you automatically but you must approach 
everyone else to convince them.  Start by going after Riviera first, Carmaine 
should kill the closest enemy and then start charging heal spells because 
Charlone will die quickly.  Save Riviera and have her start using heal spells 
as well.  Xenos should be self-sufficient at the top and after that it's just 
a matter of saving Charlone's life o nthe East side to get the Mission 
Complete.

 ~* End of Battle *~

You should be able to find your remaining party members at the South Lost 
Forest and the South Ruins.  Once you have re-recruited them head to the Time 
& Space Tower.

Climb to the peak of the tower.

In this battle it is very important to be in control at all times.  The first 
thing you must do is equip the Lv9 Transport Wings on Charlone and kill the 
two magic casters that are hiding behind the walls, they will cast quake which 
can cause extremely heavy damage to your entire party.  Once Charlone is done 
that convert her to a stat boosting magic user, have Riviera as a healer as 
well as one of your other characters, and let you melee characters run 
forward, they should be able to take out the small fry no problem.  
Maximillian will cast magic that will hurt a lot which is why I recommend 
having at least two if not three healers for this battle.  Max doesn't have 
too much life so despite your time limit once you reach him he shouldn't be 
too hard to take down.  If you want to get the Mission Complete on this battle 
you must leave Hans and Logan alive, this is very important.  Otherwise stick 
to your best attacks and magic and don't let anyone fall victim to Max's 
treachery.

retreat and you don't want that.  Send a strong attacker after Byron 
immediately, if you want the Mission Complete you cannot let him get away.  
The enemies are nothing special here, so whichever three reamining characters 
you have fighting them should suffice.  When you manage to kill Byron you'll

"I think we should..."

 - Let them fight defensively there
 - Tell them to work their way toward us

Tell them to fight defensively, it will be easier to keep them alive.  You'll 
have to fight the majority of this battle from a distace, the enemies can dish 
out some heavy damage.  Use Hans with range enhancing gems and pump him up 
with Partick's magic.  Have Wein and Xenos run up and fight, but try not to 
charge right in the middle of all the enemies, pick them off one by one.  Hans 
will have to target the ones who are cloests to the allies on the hill in 
order to keep everyone alive.  To balance the strength of the enemies you will 
be healed by the mercenaries, but it won't be that much so don't rely on it to 
keep you alive.  Getting the Mission Complete here means killing every enemy 
and not letting your backed-up mercenary friends take any casualties.


 ~* End of Battle *~

Once the fight is over select N Rottenbaum Village for a scene.  Now return to 
North Lost Forest.

~Simon~ Honest and quiet.  Not easily surprised.

~Martin~ Easygoing and upbeat.  Likable but not aggressive.

~Dozz~ Quick temper, with a threatening manner.

"So who should I send to Rottenbaum?"

 - Simon
 - Martin
 - Dozz

"Then who should I send to Schwarzfals?"

 - Simon
 - Martin
 - Dozz

Send Dozz on the first one, and Simon on the second one.  On the world map 
again go to South Grandshill for an event.  From there continue to the Time &

It is possible to save Arieta if you have completed all the proper events 
toward her ending up to this point.  The strategy remains the same for this 
battle as it does in the same battle during the other story branch, so I'll 
refer you to that (do a Ctrl+f search for Fw012) just keep in mind however 
that in this branch, you have less characters making it even more of a 
challenge.  Good luck.

Return to the North Lost Forest and speak with Wolfgang.  You should unlock 
the Sound Test in the Extra menu based on the two characters you sent, but 
some people have noted who you have to send may be random.  If anyone knows 
for sure please feel free to email me.  Your next destination is South 
Starkberg.  Before you do, if you didn't previously you can see a scene at the 
Schwarzfals Inn involving the Wounded Man, a separate one from the one you saw 
earlier.

   Enemies:

 - Mysterious Fencer (Lv32)           - Imperial Knight (Lv31)

When the battle starts it will be your entire party against Ernest.  The 
mercenaries that are with you will quickly flee, but not be in any danger.  
Ernest has an extremely high HP total, probably somewhere around 1500-2000.  
You'll need to boost the attack and defense of all your characters to remain 
alive and have someone on constant healing duty.  When you have dealt Ernest 
about a third to a half of his total HP, another enemy will join the fray.  
Keep attacking Ernest he will still have awhile before going down.  Eventually 
Ernest wil no longer be able to withstand your attacks and run away, this is 
ok.  Now continue to attack the other knight who has about one fifth the HP 
that Ernest had, the hard part of the battle is over at this point.  Assuming 
you don't let either of them run away manually you'll get the Mission Complete 
for this battle.

~* End of Battle *~

If you have Sereb an option will appear:

"Why? Well..."

 - That's just how we are
 - I don't think that's true
 - Probably a lack of intelligence
 - It has to do with desire and ambition

Choose the bottom option for best results.

Return to the inn at Schwarzfals Village.

"That means I should treat Wolfgang as if..."

 - He was wronged by our father
 - He was the cold-blooded murderer he is
 - Nothing had happened.  I wish I didn't know

There's no "right" answer, it all has to do with how you wish to act.  Your 
new destination is Starkberg.

   Completion Conditions:               Game Over Conditions:

 - Charlone and Riviera Destroyed     - Wein Destroyed

   Enemies:

 - Platoon Head (Lv26)                - Supah Fly Spy (Lv26)
 - Commander (Lv25)                   - Infantryman (Lv24)

 - Archer (Lv22)                      - Battle Wizard (Lv22)

There's two leaders here, your old teammates.  As they said if you defeat them 
the rest of the enemies will run away, which makes this an easy battle to win.  
Obviously though it's not going to be that easy if you want the Mission 
Complete.  All the enemies will automatically run away when the two leaders 
are defeated so you must leave at least one of them alive while you defeat 
every other enemy on the field.  Use spells like Shield to survive the attacks 
from every direction and position your magic users near the gate of the city 
where they should be able to cast spells without risk.  Your long ranged 
attackers should focus on the magic casters on the sides, which leaves all the 
normal soldiers to your melee fighters.  Shouldn't be a problem.

 - Infantryman (Lv22)                 - Archer (Lv22)

Begin this battle as always by casting the necessary stat boosting spells, you 
should be able to pump up fairly well before any actual combat occurs.  Beef 
up Hans and use him to kill enemies as they come through the gate, you should 
be able to kill at least 2-3 of them before you're even attacked.  The 
problems start occurring when enemies appear right where you spawn, a total of 
about ten enemies will appear here throughout the battle, maybe more or less 
depending on how long it takes you.  Ernest has by far the most HP, the 
Imperial Knight somewhat less and Riviera and Charlone are laughable.  Have 
someone stay at the bottom along with your magic users and eliminate 
reinforcements as they appear, move the rest of your team steadily upward into 
the base eliminating all the main enemies as you go.  Once you have defeated 
all four of the leaders, regardless of whether enemies are left on the field 
or not, as long as you took no casualties you will get the Mission Complete.

Now sit back and enjoy the ending.

|                             Tips for Winning                       (Ana04) |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

I would recommend equipping Wein with the Lv8 Hyper-Attack, Lv9 Bellow Store 
and something that syphons HP from enemies when you attack so you don't have 
to heal.  When you start out immediately cast Lv3 Attack Up, Lv3 Shield, Lv3 
Resistance and Lv1 Cycle Up on your character.  Just go through the battle 
like this using normal attacks, and refreshing your spells when necessary.  At 
a reasonable level this should get you through Master Class.  Save often in 
battle in case some enemy decides to be cheap and knock you out.

|                        Story 1: Tippi- Introduction                (St001) |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

"Ah, Mother!  Welcome home!  Oh, what's in the basket?"

At the unexpected sound of that voice, I opened my eyes and was surprised to 
find that, rather than the transparent walls of the case I was accustomed to, 
I found myself in a dark narrow place.

"It's a little surprise...look!"

And with that voice, a ray cut through the darkness, it's radiance forcing me 
to look away for a moment.

"Tippi, come out.  It's just my daughter Louise here."

As my eyes adjusted, I made out a bearing girl with pink hair standing before 
me.

"I'm Tippi!  Nice to meet you!  So, where's my partner," I said.

"I don't know for sure, but I would wager he's still sleeping," Sandra said.

"Yes, Mother, you're right.  I think that Tippi and I should go wake him up," 
said Louise.

"Yes, yes!  That sounds like fun, but I'm curious...what is he like," I said.  
After some thought, Louise replied that her big brother was very quiet, but 
definitely cool.

Excitedyl, I flew upstairs to the second floor, and entered the first room 
with Louise.  A boy was sleeping on the be.  "He certainly might be cool," I 
thought as Louise tried to wake him up.

"Hey!  Carmaine!  Get up, already!  Get UP," she stammered as she tried to 
wake him.  But no matter how hard she tried, his eyes wouldn't open.  My long-
awaited meeting was going to be spoiled!

No!  It wasn't going to be spoiled!  I wasn't going to let it be!  "Louise, 
leave this to me...," Tippi--KICK!

And that, was how I was introduced to my best friend Carmaine.

|                    Story 2: Sandra- Uncertain Failure              (St002) |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

"I'm very sorry the experiment has dragged on."

When Sandra entered the room, an air of bewilderment hung heavy in the air.  
The fortune teller, elder court magicians,  and all the civil officials looked 
confused.  The elderly fortune teller turned and motioned for Sandra to 
approach.

"I want you to look into the child's future and tell me what you see," she 
whispered while pointing to a small basket where a baby peered calmly at the 
faces so intent on it.  Hi right eye was gold, and his left silver.

"But...my fortune telling is very slow...I...," Sandra began to protest, but 
was interrupted by the fortune teller.  "I don't care.  I want you to tell the 
future of this child because you know nothing of him."

There was no choice.  Sandra would have to tell the child's future.  
Carefully, she held a ring with a crystal ball over the baby.  Soon, something 
began to appear within the crystal.  It appeared to be a point of light and 
another of dark, each repelling the other.

"I...I don't understand.  What is this child?"

The old woman stepped forward to gently console the confused Sandra.  "He was 
abandoned at the castle gate.  I tried seeing into his origin, but was 
confused as I saw only light and darkness."

"If this child embraces the light, it will be very good.  However, if the 
darkness overcomes him, that darkness will destroy not only him, but also the 
entire world," said the court magician, picking up where the fortune teller 
left off.

Sandra looked at the baby once more.  It looked directly back at her...with 
one gold and one silver eye.

"The darkness won't consume him."  Before she was conscious of it, the words 
spilled from Sandra's lips.

"The child's future will not be dark.  I will give him a future of light."

As if relieved at hearing those words, the baby fell soundly asleep in 
Sandra's arms.

|                         Story 3: Louise- Thoughts                  (St003) |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

I know the purest and most pathetic part within me.

"Well Misha...take care," I said.
"You train hard, Louise!  Perhaps I'll sign up for one course while you're 
way," Misha replied as she turned toward the gate.

With a friendly wave, we parted at the main gate and I began the walk back to 
Rosaria alone...with my thoughts.

My training is under a master magician at the Magic Academy.  I help him with 
research and practice the things I've learned.  If I fail his course, I won't 
be able to begin my graduation research project.  My graduation is a long way 
off, and there is plenty of time to practice, but I still worry.  Fortunately, 
my mother is a court magician, so I can practice under her eye and still be 
with my family.

"Then I can be near my big brother."

When I realized I had said that out louad, I was ashamed at first.  I 
mean...he's my brother, right?  Well, not really.  He was adopted before I was 
born.  Even so, I'm certain people would look at me with disapproval if they 
knew.  Blood relatives or not, brothers and sisters are not supposed to have 
romantic feelings for each other.

But, it happened, and these feelings of mine can't ever be discovered.  It's 
especially hard to keep this to myself when I spend long periods of time with 
him.  Sometimes I want to blurt it out, but I fear that he would think badly 
of me as well.

I couldn't bear to live if he were to avoid me, so I'd best not tell him how I 
feel.  It's better to kill those feelings then to act on them, right?

Even so, I wish I could be honest...

Perhaps the day will come when I can share my deepest secret...

|                         Story 4: Wallace- Beliefs                  (St004) |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

One blow, two blows, three blows...

A feeling of impatience arose within me as I counted the number of times the 
swords met.

"These men command impressive strength..."

As that thought crossed my mind, I felt the sensation of sweat traveling from 
my brow to my cheek.

"Was what the Village Chief said true?"

I traveled the known world for fifteen years, searching in vain for the 
commander of the mercenary band I used to call my own.

The commander had pursued a monster after it nearly destroyed everyone in our 
group.  He didn't return.

In all those fifteen years, no one had seen the grotesque, white beast that 
attacked us, nor had anyone seen our commander.

That changed when I came upon Clain Village.  Many there had reported a 
monstrous voice coming from the mountains north of the village.  With a small 
glimmer of hope, I set out toward the mountains.

Despite my hope, it was quite unexpected when I found them.  Two men in 
brilliant white armor.

"You!  Stop right there," came the voice from beneath the armor.

"I have no business with you.  Step to the side of the road," I demanded, 
setting aside the uneasiness that crept over me as I examined their gleaming 
white armor with its sharp spikes and helmet with the design of four fiery 
eyes.

"We cannot do that.  You must die here."

Each of the warriors had considerable skill.  As if that wasn't bad enough, 
two more joined the fray.

As I desperately crossed swords with them, I noticed that their long swords 
resembled that of my lost commander!

The shock of that realization brought hesitation that led to my defeat.

How can they use my commander's sword?

Who are they?

What will happen to me?

|                     Story 5: Karene- After the Incident            (St005) |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

"It's really too dangerous..."

Xenos was scolding me as big brothers are prone to do, telling me that I 
should not have been traveling through Rosaria alone at night in the first 
place.

If the boy with black hair had not come when he did, I would have been hurt or 
killed by the bandits that suddenly had appeared on the road before me.

Even as that boy drove them back with a steady sword, I found myself wishing 
that it were my brother.  When that wish turned to reality, I was overcome 
with relief.  Xenos had heard my cries!

One brother.  One sister.  We are a family of only two.  We lived together 
alone, and my strong brother was always there to save me.  In fact, just the 
sight of him made me feel safe.

Xenos appearing made the attack seem like a lie...a fabrication of my fearful 
mind.  All I could see was the strong profile of my brother's dear face.

"I...is something wrong?  Is there something on my face?  Y...you're staring 
Karene..."

"Oh!  It's nothing...nothing at all."

I grabbed my brother's arm to hide my embarrassment.

"Hey, hey there.  What's this?  It's not like you to bring out the princess 
act!"

"But, I was afraid...," the words fell from my lips like tiny beads of lead.

He always protects me.  Thinks of me first.  How can I repay such a kind 
brother?  I do wish Xenos had a little more time to spend on himself.  He's so 
taken with the problems and expectations of others that he sets his needs 
aside.  I need to try to be more careful...more self-sufficient.  He deserves 
that from his sister.

But of course, that will have to begin tomorrow.

Today my big brother saved me from the bandits...

|                         Story 6: Julian- Wandering                 (St006) |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

"Why am I here?"

As I ponder this weighty question, the villagers frolic around the fire, light 
from the flames dancing in their eyes.  For the simple feat of chasing away 
bandits they have decided to hold a celebration feast...this noisy revelry.  
But my heart isn't in it.

My father, who until today had tought me the way of the sword, no longer 
looked at me.  He had thrown away his sword.  However, a slight boy with hair 
like coal picked up the sword and returned it.

"Why is this stranger holding the sword?"  is all I could think as he stood 
before me.

I fought alongside him as an awkward thanks for returning the sword.  It 
turned out he was Sandra's son...pursuing a magic guidance document that had 
been stolen.

He still needed more experience, but he exuded a brand of confidence that was 
striking in its power...heartfelt, effortless.  His arm guided the  sword 
almost without a thought...as if by some mechanical precision.  He was 
so...different from me.

Perhaps sensing my gaze, he turned to face me.  It was as if my heart were 
pierced by his gold and silver eyes.  I looked away, immediately feeling shame 
at the action.  He must have known... how could he not?

I wonder what he thought?

Those strong-willed eyes wrought havoc with me.

It seems rediculous, but I distinctly remember thinking, quite unconsciously 
at first...

"Could he have the ability to change the fate of the world?"

o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

Searing pain ran across my back as I pulled the clothing over my head.  I 
looked at the shirt and realized that the wetness I felt as I removed it was 
blood.

"What did they do to me?"

Cursing as I wiped the blood that had dripped to the floor, I mind raced over 
the events of the day.  I quickly dressed the wounds and changed clothes.

I slipped back into the crowd, intending to slip back into Rosaria 
unannounced.  Unfortunately, I ended up meeting him.

"Hey, what are you doing here?"

"Ah, Xenos!"

He and his little sister Louise seemed to be following me.

"We;re after the person who tried to kill the princess," the sprite called 
Tippi blurted out.

"I haven't seen anyone suspicious, but if I do, is there a reward for 
capture," I asked as innocently as I could, guiding the conversation by 
sidestepping the main topic while avoiding giving any real information.

My only hope for survival was to pretend to be just like any other 
person...looking after my own interests, seeking to make money.  I had been 
trained to behave normally to the bitter end.

"There might be a reward..."

"Great!  He's as good as mine, then."

Whe nI left the two of them, the wound that brat had pressed into my back 
throbbed.  The tournament had divided us, light and dark.  He had only won by 
filling me with poison.

As he stood on the stage, showered in light for his deed, I was left in the 
shadows with the bitterness of my defeat.  An assassin, a shadow...I didn't 
exist.

"I will defeat him one day, and then I'll be in the limelight!"

But none of that bitterness was visible to anyone.  I kept it inside, burning 
within me, its dark flams nourishing my strength to survive.

o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

"What are you saying I did?"

I was being chased.  The city was strangtly empty, so there was no one to help 
me.  I ducked into a narrow back alley, but two pursuers continued to give 
chase.  As I turned the corner, gasping for breath...BAM!

I collided with a person standing there.  The light behind him obscured his 
face, but he extended a strong hand to help me to my feet.  As I grabbed his 
hand, my pursuers rounded the corner as well.  I involuntarily stiffened.

"Leave at once," the kind stranger commanded.

"Ha!  This jerk thinks he's gonna interfere in our...business," the two 
sneered as they drew swords.

In the flash of an eye, they were disarmed.

"Damn you," they screamed in defeat before running away.

"Hrmph...well, you don't seem to be injured."

As he turned to leave, I grabbed his hand.

"Um...what's your...name?"

"What's the matter Misha, Misha?  Have you forgotten my face already?"

Looking around, I realized I was in the library, grasping my friend Leda's 
hand tightly.

"But...that man..."

"Huh?  Misha, you were dreaming!  You must have fallen asleep again."

"Oh, no..."

Dejected, I stood up, filling my arms with books and documents once more.

"Wait a minute, Misha...you can't possibly see where you're going if you carry 
that much!  Make two trips..."

"Pah!  I'm fine, I can carry them all!"

I didn't have much time to make two trips.  Too much time had been lost when I 
dozed off.

THUMP!

BAM!

And then, just like in a dream, I collided with someone...

o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

I awoke before dawn and stepped outside the still-gloomy tent.  I quietly 
threaded my way through the supply stacks, so as not to be seen by the guards.  
Truthfully, I shouldn't have been doing this, but I wanted some time to 
myself.

"How many people are there who have been conscious of the significance of 
their birth," I thought as I wandered aimlessly.

"Majesty, were you to wander any further, it would be problematic."

As the words penetrated my consciousness, I realized that I was walking into 
the forest.  I turned, catching sight of a man in purple looking at me with a 
bemused smile.

"Kenshin..."
"You didn't sleep, Majesty?"
"I slept perfectly well, actually."
"That's good to hear, but these secret escapes are not safe.  It's fortunate 
for you that I came along when I did..."

Reaves lie was gentle, as usual.  Surely he had been watching over me during 
the night.

"Can I ask you one thing?  Have you ever considered the significance of you 
own birth?"

"I owe allegiance to my nation, to my friends...and to your Majesty."

He answered thus, without hesitation, using confident words.  Yes...he was 
full of confidence.

"Are you troubled, Majesty?"
"It's alright.  I'm here to stop this war...to build a better world."

As I heard the words, I gained confidence.

"Then let's return to the camp, Kenshin.  I'll be relying on you today."
"Yes, Majesty."

The expectationsof others are the defining things in my life.  The answer has 
been there all along.  And, for now, it will have to be enough.

As we walked back toward camp, it felt as if my steps had grown somehow 
lighter...

|                   Story 10: Ariost- Smiling Face of the Sun        (St00A) |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

Regrets won't serve the future, but I regret letting an unknown girl use my 
lab.

"Pleased to meet you.  Actually I've come to ask you a favor."

Her story sounded simple enough.  There was a report to write, and she lacked 
the apparatus to do the experiment properly.

"You have the apparatus to reproduce the experiment, right?"

Even at my level, experiments were thrilling to me.  I couldn't resist letting 
her use my equipment to do her experiment.

That enthusiasm quickly faded once she mixed up the chemicals, started a fire, 
and shattered much of my table equipment.

"Um...can I help?"

"No," she said with indifference, oblivious to my growing anxiety.

"If someone else does it for me, I still won't understand it.  I have to do it 
myself."

"I'll repeat the experiment until I understand it."

I couldn't argue with the inherent logic of her statement.  I simply sighed 
and watched her successive attempts carefully.

"I've done it.  Look!  I've done it!"

After taking five tries to conclude an experiment any first-year student could 
have done in one, she had indeed succeeded.  And just then, something strange 
happened.  Her excitement became mine.

"Well done, um..."

"Misha...my name is Misha."

Her smiling face was warm and radiant like the sun.  From that day on, I 
followed her progress carefully.

o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

                        Submitted by: InfinityDragonRyu

I closed the door of my assigned quarters, softening the noise of the 
celebration a little. I hadn't seen anyone on the way back to my room so my 
flushed face was my secret alone.

"Phew..."

Resting on the closed door, I exhaled as though I had forgotten to breathe 
until just then. As I realized the sound of that sigh was much louder than I 
intended, I felt the burning warmth of my face reddening further.

"Calm down, you can't let this get out of hand..."

Scolding myself, I left the door and crossed to the corner of the room where a 
full-length mirror hung. Imperial Knights are to pay close attention to their 
appearance, and so they are afforded the luxury of such a mirror.

Rather than straightening my clothing, I changed into the violet dress hanging 
there.

It wasn't the dress of a knight, but rather the battle dress of a girl. No 
matter how often I looked at myself, I remained ashamed of the look. However, 
if I backed out here, the courage it had taken to invite him would be wasted.

"Calm yourself, Julia. He's waiting..."

"You are Julia... a girl. You are Julia... a girl"

Crossing swords with 100 opponents alone was trivial compared to the battle I 
now faced in the mirror. This battle was for but one man.

He was a knight of Rolandia. The hero who had defeated the grotesque Gevel, 
and led three nations to peace. But none of that mattered to Julia. To her, he 
was the man who had returned femininity to her.

When she suddenly appeared in a dress, how would he feel?

"If I'm admired, I'll ask him to dance..."

Having made up her mind, Julia turned to the mirror once more and recited the 
incantation.

"You are Julia... a girl. You are Julia... a girl..."

And as she recited the words, she did indeed grow to believe them again... 
which, of course, made her all the more attractive.

o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

"Do you really think the rumors that Richard isn't the King are true?"

I asked this of my colleague Ernest Lyell as we walked the underground passage 
in the gloomy castle.

"All I know is that such accusations should not be spoken without proof.  At 
the very least, see what his mother believes."

Lyell showed no sign of confusion.  As usual, he was the portrait of calm 
amidst the storm.

It was a bit irritating actually.

"Well, what do you intend to do?  Turn over Richard?  I certainly don't want 
to.  I want to protect him."

"Of course.  And so, I suppose I'll cooperate with the other side."

The answer took me aback.  Had Ernest admitted treason?

"What>"

"You protect Richard, Kenshin.  I'll go to the other side.  In that way, we 
should be able to learn who is truly for Burnstein Kingdom.

With that, Lyell turned and walked away.  It was a bold plan, but I wasn't 
comfortable with it.

"Lyell, wait!"

His eyes narrowed with suspicion as he turned without a word.

"You protect Richard."

"Why?  You can be at his side just as well as I."

"Well...you're not the best at deception...you know that."

"Point taken.  Fine.  We'll do that."

We silently returned to the hall together.  I was convinced we had made the 
correct decision.

I wish I would match his sword skills...the strongest should protect Richard.

That night, I led the troops toward Shutsberg...

|                        Story 13: Richard- Inner Voice              (St00D) |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

"Please stop, Your Majesty!  The war and such..."

"Damned annoying scoundrel!  Put him in jail!"

Having said that, I turned and left.  Once I was certain I was out of sight, I 
leaned against the wall.  As sweat rolled down my cheek, a moment of clarity 
hit.

"What's wrong?  My...body won't obey me.  Did I really say that I desired 
war?"

Somewhere within, I could hear a voice...grieving at the path I had chosen.

"Shut up!"

Muttering, I chased away the voice of reason within me.  However, I was 
startled when a different voice answered.

"I'm very sorry about this, Your Majesty."

I had nearly exposed my cover, saved only by my indistinct muttering.

"Ernest?  What's wrong?"

"What shall we do with Princess Letita?  We still have the means to use her as 
a bargaining chip in negotiations for reparations...avoiding war."

"Out of the question.  Attempting to assassinate me should not be rewarded 
with money or territory!"

"So we are to go to war, no matter what?"

"Once they know the pain of war, they will not try something so foolish 
again."

"As you will, Highness.  Then what of the Princess?"

"Keep her from my sight.  I do not wish to see her...eyes.  You are 
dismissed."

At my order, the knight hung his head low with a sigh.

"What's wrong?  Leave already!"

Crushed by my tone, he left.  As I watched him disappear from the room, the 
voice within me returned.

"Please, wait.  Don't go, Ernest!"

Just then he turned the corner and was gone.

"Wait!  Don't leave me alone!"

A scream leaked out from a dark corner of my soul, causing a sharp pain to 
tear through my skull.

I could not stop the putrid exhalation, and the stench overwhelmed the hall.

"I can't let this...thing defeat me.  I have endured for 14 years...I cannot 
stop now."

Pushing myself from the wall, I began to walk again.  A strong voice echoed in 
my head, as if to encourage me.

"That's right, Richard...My ambitions depend on you.  I won't let you rest 
until they are accomplished."

"Yes, Master Gevel".  As the sound of the heavy voice echoed within my head, 
the small voice within me fell silent.

"Gevel has been defeated."

I would deliver the news to my friend Kenshin privately. Only his footsteps 
echoed in the dark, dank passage.

"Ernest?"

Although he couldn't yet see me, the muttering voice of a boy could be heard 
from the innermost part of the jail.

The owner of the voice was sleeping, not on the simple bed, but spread-eagle 
on the stone floor.

"Richard?!"

"Don't make such a strange face. It's nothing..."

While quietly saying that, he closed his eyes. For a moment, it seemed as if 
he might disappear.

"Gevel... has been defeated."

"I know. I felt it when it happened. It was as if suddenly all the strength 
was sucked from my body. I fell to the ground and lacked the strength to get 
up."

As he related how his life was in danger, he spoke as if talking about another 
person.

"Can't you stand?"

"It's not that I lack the strength. It's just become a tiresome exercise."

He spoke in an expressionless tone of voice as he rose with some effort. It 
was a peculiar show of courage, coming from this frail boy.

I took off my glove and extended a hand into the iron latticework. Richard 
grasped it without hesitation. It was cold as stone, but strong.

The hand which grasped mine betrayed his true condition more than any voice 
could. He was silently fighting death... a painful death.

It was then I decided.

"I want to protect this person."

Even if it were to come at the cost of everything I had worked for, I would 
stand at his side.

In a filthy underground cell, unable to get enough water, let alone food to 
satisfy him, a boy lay prostrate. The boy had been caught breaking into a 
landowner's manor.

"This is terrible..."

The man scowled while rising to fetch clean, hot water for the boy. The boy, a 
guard, and I waited. I moved closer and knelt at the boy's side.

". . ."

He was moving his lips as if to say something, but no words were coming out.

"Come now! Surely you can't stand guard as this child suffers!"

"Once a brat has learned to steal, he'll steal again. You had best just let 
him die here... if you save him, he'll pay you back with vengeance."

"Shut up!"

The words were so sharp, they startled me. For the first time in my life, I 
screamed at the whim of my emotions.

"He had to steal in order to live! If his parents hadn't abandoned him, it 
wouldn't have been necessary."

I uttered the words without thinking... the words he had always said. He...

An awkward silence chilled the air. "He" broke it by bringing the hot water.

"What's wrong? What happened?!"

Moments later, we were walking back toward the city, the boy carried on his 
back already sleeping fitfully.

He said those simple words so suddenly. I was taken aback.

"You know... for what you said to the guard," he continued.

"I... I just didn't want your conduct to be laughed at."

"Mmmm... yes. Well, instead of just defending me, I wish you truly understood 
how I think."

"Ah..."

I see... this is not giving up. His outlook was hopeful... always. Such is the 
excellence of humans.

"The more I know of your way, the happier I am. I... is it all right if I stay 
with you a little longer... to help?"

He took my hand with a smile. His hand was large and warm.

. . . Pish . . .

A the sharp sound of cracking entered my consciousness. My thoughts, suspended 
in a frozen "death", began to awaken.

". . . where is this place?"

I strained to look at my surroundings, and soon realized I was restrained. 
Little by little, my memory returned. My body had been sealed within a magic 
crystal.

The humans that had given life to me, making me fight for their benefit, had 
sealed me when I was no longer of use.

Knowing that they lacked the power to take my life back, and fearing my 
strength, they sealed me within a magic crystal enriched with Grow to weaken 
me. It was an agony that far exceeded death.

Wave after wave of Grow in the crystal ate away at my body, and no matter how 
hard I tried to twist to avoid the onslaught, the crystal remained unforgiving 
in its restraint.

Would my life run out, or would the Grow dissipate first? In either case, the 
answer would not come for hundreds of years. Billions of agonizing seconds.

But, how much time passed since then?

I had no reference point to guess how much time had passed. I could only see 
that my body and the crystal prison that held me had both thinned 
considerably.

. . . Pish . . .

Another sharp sound... the magic crystal was cracking before my eyes.

At last, the time has come...

It was time to hunt again. But this time, I would hunt with a plan... my plan. 
I will rule humans not through direct conquest, but by means of artifice. 
Yes... human society itself will become my target.

And with that realization, I shattered the thin veil of crystal that remained 
between me and my rebirth to power.

O============================================================================O

   - First Day - Rolandia Capital

I've begun my adventure at last!

According to Master, Carmaine hasn't gone outside even once!

Even though this is my first time out in the world, I can't appear weak.  I 
have to look strong!

I need to do whatever I must to look strong, even though I am not really that 
way...yet.

   - At the Western Cape

There are very strange things in this world.  Today we met a ghost.  I wonder 
what other strange things will happen...

   - Forest of Capital

Carmain is very weak, but I didn't expect him to fall over.

He disappeared when I went to summon someone and fell over again in Master's 
Lab.

Being forced to defend this kind of weakling is embarrassing.  I didn't know 
it would be like this...

Oh well, I'm glad I saved the girl from the villian.  It feels good when 
things to right.

I wonder if I'll see Karene again?

Oh well, I can worry about that later.  Right now I have to concern myself 
with getting Master's stolen magic guidance book back...

   - Mountain Hut East of Deris Village

I did it!  I did it!  I don't know how it happened, but I recovered the 
Master's nagic guidance research book!

Wallace has an artificial arm and eye, which makes him much cooler than 
Julian.

I get along with Wallace, but I can't stand Julian.  He's way too stuck up for 
my taste.

If I get the chance, I'll kick him!

   - Deris Village

That thief is really getting on my nerves!  The man who attacked Karene was 
wrecking the village.

It's a good thing we were here, because if we weren't, there's no telling how 
much damage he would have caused.

   - Sandra Research Tower ~ Royal Castle

Ahh! It's an emergency!  We fought with strange masked men and Master was 
poisoned!

According to Louise, Featherian science may be able to heal him...and so we 
have to find a Featherian.

   - Magic Academy

I saw the Magic Academy where Louise is studying.  That's a fantastic place!

I don't have time to talk about that now, though.  I need to find Ariost... 
and fast!

   - Grandshill City

I met Karene once more, but she's still having problems with that thief 
attacking her.

This time she was poisoned like my Master was...I hope she'll be okay.

   - Ruins North of Grandshill

We managed to safely rescue Ariost in the Featherian ruins south of the Magic 
Academy!

He said he was down there searching for parts for the levitation machine.  
Doesn't he know it's dangerous!?

   - Ariost's Lab

Ooohh!  I saw Ariost's flying machine!  It's amazing, but a little...uh, 
scary.

   - Featheria

I think I'm going to be sick...what are these bird peopl?  I just want to go 
home...

I...I have to do something, though.  My Master is...oh, what do I do?  What do 
I do?

I have to learn more about these...these...Featherians.  Maybe I can get a 
book somewhere...

Oh...I almost forgot to mention...teleportation is convenient.

   - Magic Academy Library

Some books at the Magic Academy talked about a man named Danny in Comsprings 
that knows all about Featherians.

I need to find him, but Comsprings is in Burnstein...it's not safe to travel 
there right now...

If only I could get an escort...

   - Bolognia Village ~ Ariost's Home

I figured out a way to get to Comsprings.  There's a contest held in 
Grandshill once a year...I have to win it.

It's gonna be tough, though because Xenos is trying to win it, too.

   - Grandshill Arena

I did it!  I did it!  I won!  Yeaaaahhh!  Now I'm one step closer to saving 
Master!

   - Comsprings

I met Danny Grays in Comsprings.  I learned a lot of things, and think it may 
be all right in the end with Master.

I wonder if I can sense the beauty of humanity because the Master who created 
me is a human?  It's such a mystery...

Maybe I'll call myself Ultimate Matchless Magic Guidance Lifeform Tippi...

...but then again, that sounds kind of stuck up.  Maybe I'll just stay Tippi.

   - Ruins North of Magic Academy

I discovered a kidnapped Featherian Queen in the Ruins north of the Magic 
Academy!

It was sooo exciting!  I rescued her, but how did a normal human get to such a 
high place?  It doesn't make any sense...

   - Rolandia Royal Castle

I relied on Carmain'e abilities, but I found out later he was channeling 
Louise's power, too.

Oh!  I also accepted a change of duty from Princess Letitia...

   - Plains East of Forth Rargin

That bandit Oswald came to cause trouble again.

This time he brought his boss along with him to make even more trouble!

Fortunately, an Imperial Knight and Lyell showed up and made a mess of them.

I wonder if all Imperial Knights are that strong?

  either 2 or 3... I chose 2.
- (Unsure which affects more) After the scene at the Claudius Mansion, talk to 
  Charlone and either 2 or 3 will work, 1 lowers points. I chose 2.

-Go to Comsprings and view the Charlone and Riviera Event.
- (Unsure) Charlone will look at brooches and Wein stumbles upon her, 1 will 
  initiate the next scene while the other two cancel the scene and lower 
  points.
 Choice 1: Bird is Exquisite (Unsure)
 Choice 2: Bird looks good -> Choices 2a Choice that makes Charlone blush 
  (First one I think) the others will drop her points down.
 Choice 3: Dolphin Exquisite (Unsure)
 Choice 4: Dolphin looks good -> Choices 4a same as 2a, first should make her 
  blush and others drop her points.
 Choice 5: Neither drops points.

  questioning at Zauerberg
- if your quick enough on the Firefly Mission (Mind you im on the Arieta  
  branch) and light all four rooms and escape before any reinforcements come

  path to Magic Academy and talk to Misha if possible to get her name if you 
  didn't do it earlier.

  refuse Wolfgang's offer and after the Mission on the way back to some 
  location (I think grasslands?) Charlone and Wein will talk.

  should occur option 2 says something about her literally running into Wein, 
  this option seems to raise everyone's affection. (Not sure if this before or 
  after the Black Reign Mission)
- Sometime before or after joining the campaign or after the Black Reign 
  Mission, go to Starkburg and the Claudius Mansion and choose option 2.
- Last, choose Charlone at the Dating Sequence.

o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

Same as Charlones Path/Getting Playable Arieta Character, talk to Arieta as 
much as possible by checking places over and over again after major events.

  to Riviera, then select option two which is something about going with the 
  others.

  springs with her, option two will raise points. Should be before joining the 
  Campaign or sometime during the neural armor ordeal.

  option 2 should raise her points along with the others.
- During the beginning when you first recruit her, option 1 should be more 
  effective than any of the other choices.

o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

  four questions in the second step, I choose number 3.
- Once getting Carmaine, talk to Louise in Burnstein right after getting 
  Carmaine.
- Speak to Carmaine in Clain village.
- In north starkburg, either 1 or 2 should put Carmaine at 7/10, while the 
  other remains neutral.

  second time when you have Carmine with you.
- In Valmic Town, talk to the Inn Girl and then Carmaine.

  Ernest.

  Misha).

  and the second talk due to impatience.)

  up about Misha, Option 1 and 2 seem to increase carmaine by 1 point, however

   -- Tip

You have the ability to save in battle, use this, often.  Keep numerous 
backup saves you can use in battles when you're doing well that you can just 
restore if things to horribly wrong.

   -- Tip (Submitted by DB27)

1) If there is a "boss" amoung the enemy, always steal from him/her.

2) If possible, have the person who defeats the "boss" have Empower on to 
boost the level of the resultant ring you get.

3) All rewards for killing / thieving from enemies is determined at the start 
of the battle. If you don't like what you got, you will have to reload and re-
initiate the battle from the map screen. Conversely, if you like what you got 
but didn't do well, load a save from within the battle and all the treasures 
will be the same.

4) If you go to the dam before "Max" destroys it, you can have an event where 
Hans goes fishing and "catches" a random level 3 gem (+/- a level, I think)

5) Art of Thievery (first able to buy at the Magic Academy) is a great thing 
to put on Charlone, since she can usually hit just about anything from where 
she starts but doesn't seem to get Thievery as a skill. You can also swap out 
Art of Thievery after you've used it (only affects the first hit of the battle 
from that character).

6) Don't forget you can swap gems in battle. This is especially useful for the 
Quickness gems (adds to MOV). Swap one in, go to where you need to go, then 
swap it back out for your battle gem. Absolutely necessary for Charlone in 
some of the battles (must be so top-heavy that she can't walk fast).

7) Get cure/healing for everyone who can get it.

8) Remember that some magic spells don't have a range limit and you don't need 
to see the target. Riviera can stay tucked in a corner and still contribute a 
lot to the battle.

   -- Tip (Submitted by Marc99)

To get Wolfgangs path

You have to get mission completes on all your missions (the test at the 
beginning doesn't count).
After the wolfgang announcement if you go to the lower left corner of the 
screen you will trigger a battle. But before the battle if you got all mission 
completes he will ask you to join him and the battles from then on will be 
different.(if you chose to go with him)

   -- Tip (Submitted by Marc99)

To get Lyell

1.during the magic schools book quest stay at his house by walking over it.

2.After you get Riveia go back to his place and pick the first option.

3- When Wolfgang makes the announcement go to yhe southern edge and trigger 
that battle and win.

4.After you bring supplies to the base, go to his cabin and pick the second 
option. 

   -- Tip (Submitted by Zerios)

Cat Girl Quest

- Go to the magician academy, then talk to the Xenobiologist twice
- Fight the catgirl at the path towards Grandshill
- Talk to the Xenobiologist twice and say yes that you say the cat girl.
- Head to south rachet north of the magician academy and shout if they are 
  from mage academy then say yes to give her a name next time you see her.
- Sometime during the real criminal quest, talk to the new guard at Starkburg 
  after talking to the Inn Guest in comsprings to open a event in the ruins 
  west of Starkburg, saving before hand is recommended.
- While at the ruin mission with the catgirl, do not let the spikes kill her, 
  finish the mission by having someone sprint off and turn off the switch or 
  killing all enemies.
- Talk to the angry farmer sometime in Rottenbaum Village, then visit the inn 
  and view the scene with the cat girl.
- head to Shwartofelz and see treasury, then select option 2 then 1 and Wein 
  should talk to the litch.
- go to Starkburg and visit the city at night.
- Head to the ruins east of comsprings, and fight the litch. Constantly heal 
  the catgirl then when given the chance tell her to come your way.
- After the Black Reign mission, visit the good uncle in Zauerberg and say you 
  found the gem from a catgirl, then respond truthfully.
- Go to south starkburg and find the catgirl.
- Visit Luga at the Inn in Zauerberg.

   -- Tip (Submitted by Red testament)


During Wolfgang's storyline, eventually you'll chase after Commander Byron. 
When you have the option to capture him, you should let him go. At the very 
end of the game, you'll get a secret event worth seeing and a bonus battle 
that pits Wein and Wolfgang against Byron.

   -- Tip (Submitted by Kimber Boh)

If you have enough Elm during the game (and this is inexpensive anyway), stay 
at the inns in every town after a major event takes place in the story. There 
are numerous scenes that are sparked by staying at certain inns during a 
specific timeframe.

- One is staying at the Inn in Clain, I believe when you first start the quest 
  for the true imposter: you get a scene where Hans and Wein go to the 
  cemetary at night and find Xenos there.
- Another is at Comsprings after you join the campaign (but before you visit 
  King Elliotte): you get a scene with Riviera in the market. This scene is 
  very funny, but you may need her friendship at 10/10 to trigger it.
- There a several others, but I neglected to write them down. Also, if you 
  visit the Inn at Schwartzfals after the boy mentions his father took in an 
  injured man, you can then visit the guy 3 times to gain alot of insight into 
  Wein's father and Wolfgang (the first time is before Wolfgang's 
  announcement, second is right after the announcement, and third is when you 
  are sent to Comsprings to help Logan).

   -- Tip (Submitted by Vendetta Morendo)

The neural armors are pretty susceptible to lightning and that equipping gems 
that give your weapon that element can make fights against them a good deal 
easier

   -- Tip (Submitted by Thanatos2k)

Once you have access to the Bonus Battle in the arena, in which you fight a 
dozen or so of the gold slimes, all you need is the "Double Rings" lvl 9 gem. 
Slap it onto your favorite mage (Arietta, Riviera, whoever) and have them use 
the skill "Strengthen Magic" on Quake. Even at level 1 it'll wipe the slimes 
off the battlefield.

Since ring quality is loosely related to the strength of the attack and since 
the slimes are high caliber enemies anyways, you net a crapload of very high 
quality rings, many of them 9-9-9. You can find the ones best for your party 
and sell the rest for craploads of cash!

You need the Double Rings because you only get 15000 from winning the battle, 
and it costs 40000 to enter. However, selling excess rings easily gets you the 
extra 25k and then some! Sleep at the inn and repeat until you've done.

Though you will be certainly deep into the game when you can beat Master level 
at the arena anyways.....regardless, I'm happy with my legit ring massing.

   -- Tip (Submitted by Another Denshuu)

On the world map press: 

Up, Right, L2, L2, Down, R2, R2, Up, Down, R2, L2, Right, Left, O, O, O

You will receive 9 of every armour and gem in the game.
