    ===============================================================================
    
    
    This Walkthrough aims to provide a guide and suggestions for those who wish to
    complete as many quests as possible in one playthrough. I personally do not
    recommend doing so on the first playthrough since it is a lot more fun to
    explore the world of Mardias and discover the plenty of surprises on your own.
    Completing most of the quests in the first playthrough will leave you with
    little new things if you are planning to play through the game more than once.
    Furthermore, following this guide requires some experience of the game, such as
    battling and actively avoiding monsters, which can be hard for a player new to
    the game. Therefore, I recommend you follow the order of quests in this guide
    only if you are prepared.

            I. Introduction                                               [RS100]
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    
    Romancing Saga: Minstrel Song is a non-linear game which consists of a good
    number of quests. Most of the quests are optional and you can decide which to
    take on. Since each quest has a "time frame" in which they are open for the
    player, you may easily miss, or simply fail, some quests while you are working
    on another one. However, this game has over 50 quests. It is alright to miss or
    fail some quests in a playthrough. You can always pick up the missed quests in
    a future playthrough. In fact, you may want to leave some quests alone in your
    first playthrough so that you have something new in future playthroughs.
    
    Nevertheless, some players (such as myself) like to complete as many things as
    possible in a single playthrough. This guide provides suggestion on the order
    of quests to take on so that one may complete as many quests as possible in a
    single playthrough. This is especially helpful if you are trying to maximize
    jewel income for challenges such as 10-Fatestone (10FS) Saruin. If you are not
    planning to complete all the quests, the information on individual quests
    should still be helpful.
    
    Note that following the order of quests suggested in this guide requires some
    experience in the game, which includes some familiarity with the battle system
    as well as experience in actively avoiding monsters. As a result, you may find
    it hard to follow the order of quests with the suggested "time frame" if you
    are new to the game.
    
    I am writing this guide with my experience on the game, the information from
    the Brady Guide, and the plenty of discussions on the GameFAQ's Romancing Saga
    Message Board. I strive to be as accurate as possible when writing this guide,
    but the vast world of Mardias and randomness may leave room for errors. If you
    see any errors or have any suggestions, please feel free to contact me.

            II. Event Rank (ER)                                           [RS200]
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    
    First of all, I need to introduce one of the most important concepts used in
    this guide--Event Rank or ER.
    
    Event Rank is similar to the time or your progress in the game. It determines
    which quests are open and which are close. As you win battles, you accumulate
    Rank Points. The number of Rank Points you have determines your ER. If you are
    interested in more details about the Rank Points, you may refer to the Rank
    Points section of Ramtieger's Game System FAQ.
    
    To determine your current ER in the game, you need to consult the Volunteer
    Brigade. You can find one in each of the towns. When you talk to the kid, tell
    him "I could use your help." This brings up a list of topics of tutorial.
    Using the new topics given by the kid, you can determine your current ER. For
    example, if the newest topic is "How do I get more jewels?", that means your ER
    is 3. The following table is obtained from the Brady Guide. Match the topics to
    determine your ER.
    
    
      Event Rank                   Topics

          9                Herbs and Ore

          20               Final Secrets
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Note:
    * The topic for ER 6 does not appear until you reach ER 7. That means there is
    essentially no new topic appears at ER 6. You can only determine if you are at
    ER 5 or 6 by the availability of certain quests, such as Stolen Nymphs or
    Neville's Request.
    
    Also note that there are ER 21 and 22. The Volunteer Brigade does not have any
    new topic for these two ERs. ER 21 is of the least importance and there is no
    clear cut way to distinguish between ER 20 and ER 21 except with certain quests
    that may span multiple ER. As for ER 22, one way to determine whether you are
    at that ER is the availability of the quest Frozen Faerie. If you did not
    trigger this quest through Death, this quest is available when you reach ER 22.

            III. Character Introduction Walkthrough                       [RS300]
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    
    This section starts the walkthrough for the introduction of each character.
    The quest with the earliest closing ER is Unsettling Settlement (Quest 8),
    which closes after ER 2. To complete this quest, you need to finish a main
    character's introduction by ER 2, or you will miss the chance.
    
    One needs to actively avoid most of the random monsters to keep the ER from
    rising too fast, either through player's skill in dodging monsters or through
    the proficiencies Lurk and Move Silently. If you fight too many battles, your
    ER may increase too much and cause some other events to close or fail before
    you have a chance to complete them.
    
    Finishing the introduction by ER 2 is especially hard for Sif. The slopes of
    Shiverland can be infested with Birds, Beasts, and Plants, which are hard to
    dodge in a narrow passage. The caves in Shiverland are even worse. It would be
    rather easy to avoid them if one had Lurk and Move Silently, but we do not have
    the luxury in the Sif's introduction unless Darque is unlocked. Once Darque is
    unlocked,he can be recruited in most of the towns right at the start of the
    game and he carries the proficiency Lurk. Refer to Who Am I? (Quest 52) for
    more information about Darque.
    
    Remember that the suggestions of actively avoiding monsters and finishing the
    introduction by ER 2 are contingent on the desire to complete as many quests as
    possible in a single playthrough. As mentioned in the Introduction, this is not
    recommended for players new to the game.
    
    
    
      --------------
          Albert                                                          [RS301]
      ==============
    
    Albert is a young nobleman. He is the son of Rudolf, Lord of the Isthmus.
    Albert has the longest introduction and he is suitable for players who are new
    to Saga games. However, to make it easier to complete his introduction by ER 2,
    you may consider leaving Albert until you have unlocked Darque.
    
    Albert starts his adventure in his bedroom! After the talk with Diana, leave
    the room and go down to the throne room. Diana will get upset if you did not
    equip your shield and sword. Equip them and talk to Diana again. Monsters have
    infested the cave to the east. You mission is to eradicate them. Soldier A and
    Soldier B will join to assist you.
    
    When you have left the castle and walk down the slope, you should see the cave
    (Isthmus Cavern) not far away. Since we would like to keep the ER low, avoid as
    many random monsters as possible and go straight to the end for the boss. If
    you unavoidably get into a battle, you may retreat from the battle, but watch
    your characters' LP. Note that you cannot withdraw from chain battles.
    
    The boss is tough. You can only pray that Diana or one of the soldiers would
    learn a tech or two to deal decent damage. Use the First-Aid Kit or the balms
    on the soldiers if needed. After you killed the boss, you will need to dodge
    your way back out of the cave. When you are out, you may strip the soldiers
    of any unused balms since they will leave your party soon.
    
    Report to Lord Rudolf for the success. Then Prince Neidhart of Rosalia has
    come to propose to Diana. After Neidhart has left, the castle throws a
    celebration party for Diana. In the meanwhile, a evil minion of Saruin is
    plotting against the castle.
    
    When Albert wakes up again in his bedroom, the caslte is being attacked. Head
    down to the throne room and Lord Rudolf will ask Albert to protect Diana and
    take a message to Prince Neidhart asking for aid. Use the secret passage at the
    back of the room to leave. Don't forget to take the 2000G in the chest that is
    in the passage.
    
    Albert and Diana get outside, but they are surrounded by a large number of
    monsters. At this time, a Dragon appears. To let Albert survive, Diana throws
    Albert off the cliff and decides to fight alone to buy him some time...
    
    Albert is rescued by Monica and wakes up in her house in Loban. You need to go
    to Bruelle and take the ship to Yeoville in order to reach Rosalia. However, if
    you run into the soldiers in Loban, you will be taken into a jail. Search for
    a movable wall and escape. On your way out, you will here someone is cursing
    someone else. This is related to the quest Ailing Emperor (Quest 27), but you
    may put this aside for now. At this point, do not recruit anyone into your
    party yet as they will be forced to leave your party later. Before you leave
    Loban, visit the mentor and buy the Move Silently proficiency. Buy the Jump
    proficiency also if you want a Gothic Armor later. Now head to Bruelle and buy
    the Lurk Proficiency from the mentor. This mentor also allows you to train in
    Covert and Survival skills. To get the Gothic Armor, you need at least level 2
    in Survival. (Note that if this is your first playthrough, you may not train
    Covert or Survival skill individually yet, you will have to train the whole
    class that contains the skill. In fact, you need to get a class to level 3
    before you can train skills individually.) When you are ready, let's take the
    ship to Yeoville.
    
    On the ship, there is a seemingly unimportant scene that you see a man holding
    a large package. He is related to Stolen Nymph (Quest 18), but you don't need
    to worry about it now. While Albert thinks he can arrive in Rosalia safely, the
    ship is wrecked and fate has brought him to Valhalland.
    
    Gato, the elder of the village, has asked Sif, a female Valhallan Warrior, to
    clear the caves of monsters. You have the option to help out to repay them for
    saving your life. (If you choose the other option, you will have to do it
    without Sif. The generic Valhallan Warrior in the pub will not join you
    either.) If you have unlocked Darque, recruit him into your party. Then go to
    the pub to recruit the Minstrel and Valhallan Warrior. Keep asking the Minstrel
    to sing until he joins. Equip the Lurk, Move Silently, and Jump proficiencies
    before you head out. If you did not do so, the mentor in Gato's Village also
    allows you to train Covert and Survival skills.
    
    There are three caves you need to clear--the West Cave, East Cave, and South
    Cave. The middle left arrow on the Shiverland map leads to the West Cave. The
    second arrow from the top on the right side leads to the East Cave. The bottom
    right arrow leads to the south slope. Go through the south slope and the South
    Cave will be to the left. To clear a cave, you only need to take out the fixed
    monster standing still on the screen at the end of the cave. You should ignore
    and avoid other random monsters. The South Cave stage 2 has a second exit to an
    enclosed slope. Don't forget to get the chests there before you leave. After
    you kill the boss in West Cave, go forward and you will see a chest behind a
    jump point. If you have level 2 Jump, you will be able to get the 500G and
    Gothic Armor inside the chest.
    
    After clearing the caves, return to see Gato and receive your rewards. Next, to
    get to Rosalia, you will need to take a ship from the Knights Dominion. Gato
    gives you a map and now you have access to Eugenstadt.
    
    Leave the village and take the bottom left arrow of the map to exit Shiverland.
    Press the triangle button to go to the world map, select Knights Dominion and
    then Eugenstadt. In Eugenstadt, visit the castle and you will meet with Lord
    Heinrich. He is heading for Mirsaburg for the council of knights. Choose to go
    with him. After the council of knights, you may help Theodore and Raphael in
    the quest Pride of the Knights. However, we have more time-sensitive quests to
    do, so we will leave this for later.
    
    At Mirsaburg, take the ship to Yeoville. Leave the town and head for Crystal
    City. After all these, you have finally arrive at the capital of Rosalia. Go
    to the Crystal Palace and see Prince Neidhart. This concludes the introduction
    of Albert.
    
    
    
    
      -------------
          Aisha                                                           [RS302]
      =============
    
    Aisha is a nomad girl of the Taralian tribe. Today she is taking a ride on her
    horse on the Steppes of Galessa. When you gain control of Aisha, you are free
    to ride the horse on the steppes. You will enter a battle when you run into the
    monster. When Aisha loses, Prince Neidhart of Rosalia comes to the rescue.
    
    After a scene, you have the options of following Neidhart for a visit of
    Crystal City or going back to the camp directly. Either way, the story will
    turn out the same, so it is recommended to go to Crystal City for the extra
    scenes. Aisha and Neidhart eventually come back to the camp, Neidhart will have
    a talk with Aisha's Grandfather, Nizam. After Neidhart has left, you will
    regain control of Aisha outside Nizam's camp. Go back into the camp, talk to
    Nizam, and you now have access to Uso.
    
    From this point, you can have two routes to go. The first route is going to
    Uso, open up the world, and start exploring and roaming the world for quests.
    The second route is getting kidnapped and sold as slave to South Estamir. The
    second route seems so much more interesting. Let's do that!
    
    One drawback of getting kidnapped is that you lose the chance to complete the
    quest Wuhan's Secret. You will still get the jewels reward, but you will lose
    the 2500 gold reward. To get around this, we will first open up South Estamir
    and trigger Wuhan's Secret. You may follow the steps below to get to South
    Estamir:
    
    1. Leave Steppes of Galessa through one of the exits on the right of the map
       and go to Uso.
    
    2. Recruit Hawke at Uso.
    
    3. Go to Northpoint and talk to the lady at the town entrance, who mentions
       about heading south to reach Rosalia.
    
    4. Now go back to Uso, walk south along the road, and exit through the south
       entrance. This will automatically brings you to Crystal City.
    
    5. Check the Crystal City pub for Sif or check the pubs of Crystal City, Uso,
       and Northpoint for Barbara. Go back and forth on these three places until
       you find one of them and recruit her.
    
    6. If you have recruited Barbara, you may go directly to South Estamir. If you
       have recruited Sif, you may go to Yeoville and take a ship to North Estamir
       for 50G. If you prefer not to spend the gold, you may continue your search
       for Barbara in Altours, Crystal City, Uso, and Northpoint. You may also find
       Jamil in Altours or Yeoville, which can also open up South Estamir directly.
    
    7. If you have taken the ship from Yeoville to North Estamir. You will need to
       go through the sewers to South Estamir. Avoid the monsters in the sewers. Or
       you may do the first part of Oh, Mummy! to get 1000 gold and take the ship
       to South Estamir for 10G.
    
    8. Once you are in South Estamir, go to the pub. Talk to the bartender and then
       the agent to the right to trigger Wuhan's Secret.
    
    Now that we have triggered the Wuhan's Secret, it's time for the fun. First
    dismiss all other characters in your party. Head back to the Steppes of
    Galessa. Near the entrance at the top right of the map, you will see a man.
    When you approach the man, you will get into a battle with the kidnapper.
    Losing to the kidnapper, Aisha is enslaved and sold to South Estamir. After a
    short scene, you will end up in Wuhan's Secret Room. After talking with Farah,
    Jamil comes to rescue. When they are about to escape, Wuhan has come and you
    will need to defeat the two guards. After the battle, you have the options to
    forgive or kill Wuhan. Killing Wuhan affects some quests and rewards in the
    future. In this guide, Wuhan is spared.
    
    You may talk to Farah to collect some jewels and go back to South Estamir pub
    to collect your gold reward. From this point on, Aisha is free to explore the
    world. (Note that you have lost access to Uso and Steppes of Galessa. To regain
    access to those places, go to Northpoint and walk out of the town. This brings
    you to Uso. In Uso, talk to the lady to the left of the magic shop to get
    access to Steppes of Galessa.)
    
    
    
    
      ------------
          Gray                                                            [RS303]
      ============
    
    Gray is an adventurer. Together with Myriam and Galahad, he sets sail to Ligau
    Isle to search for treasures. After arriving in Jelton, talk with the people in
    town to collect information. There are words that treasures are hidden in the
    caves of the plains. The bartender mentions about a deep burrow near a big
    flower field. That sounds like a place of treasure. Other people also mentions
    that dinosaur egg can sell for a good price.
    
    Let's head out to the plains and start looking for treasure! The first
    destination is the cave located at the bottom right of the plains map. You will
    see dinosaurs on the plains. At this point, you will not be able to defeat
    them. So just avoid them and don't get in their way. The Treasure Cave is long,
    but it should be straight forward. Avoid as many random monsters as possible to
    keep your ER low. Keep in mind that you need to finish the introduction by
    ER 2 in order to do the quest on the other side of the world! When you arrive
    at the first intersection of Treasure Cave B3, you will see a Rusty Sword.
    After the sword is pulled out, the sword will speak to Gray and ask Gray to
    temper it with bronze. This initiates a quest exclusive to Gray. Continue on to
    the end of the cave, you will see a beastman standing at a dead end. The
    beastman will call out some company and a battle starts. This battle can be
    tough at this point and it may take a number of tries. If you need an extra
    hand, you may recruit the Minstrel in Jelton's pub by keeping asking him to
    sing songs. Or you may get in a few random battles to level up a bit before
    taking them on. However, do watch your ER and make sure you are still ER 2
    when you get out of the cave. After defeating them, a chest appears and there
    is the "plain treasure"...
    
    Now let's get the dinosaur egg. The Dinosaur Nest is the cave nearest to the
    plains exit leading to Jelton (the leftmost middle cave on the map). A few
    dinosaurs inhabit this cave and the egg is at the end of the cave. The
    dinosaurs normally do not chase you; however, once you get the egg, they will
    keep chasing you in a frenzy. One way to ensure that you get out of the cave
    safely and easily, you may get into battle with the dinosaurs *before* you get
    the egg and retreat. They will then disappear. (If you have the egg, they will
    not disappear even if you retreat.) You may keep the egg or sell it for over
    5k gold. (Before you sell it, try using the egg in battle. It's pretty cool!)
    
    With the stuff done on Ligau Isle, head back to Jelton. A man should now be at
    the dock. Talk to him and leave for Melvir. When you arrive, you get to pick
    whether you want to go with Galahad, Myriam, or none. Do not worry about losing
    one or the other, you can always re-recruit them later.
    
    In Melvir, you will run into Gian. He will ask you to protect a girl named
    Claudia for him. Let's do this for an old pal and Gian will pay you 1000G for
    your help. Claudia will then join your party.
    
    
    Gray Bug
    --------
    
    Every now and then, there are players on the message board report that they
    cannot find the ship to Melvir. The man who takes you to Melvir is simply not
    there at the dock, even after you have finished everything on Ligau Isle. This
    is known as the Gray Bug.
    
    I personally have never encounter this bug, so I cannot say much about it.
    However, I have a couple suggestions and hopefully they may help.
    
    1. Make sure you talk with everyone in town, including the bartender, before
       you leave the town.
    
    2. Every time you return to town, check the dock. If the man is there, hop onto
       the ship to Melvir lest the man disappears in the future. You can always
       come back to Jelton afterwards.
    
    Bladewind's FAQ has a step by step guide on a safe route to avoid the Gray Bug.

          Claudia                                                         [RS304]
      ===============
    
    Claudia is raised by Eule, witch of Mazewood. There is much mystery about
    her true identity. When the game begins, the birds tell Claudia that Eule
    is looking for her. Walk towards the north and talk with Eule. It seems that
    monsters have been lurking near the forest entrance lately. Claudia is sent to
    take a look with the company of Sylvan and Brau. Go back to the previous area,
    turn to the right and then south, and keep going south. Eventually, you will
    see a scene where a man named Gian is being chased by monsters.
    
    After the battle, Gian will give Claudia a map of the Empire and ask her to
    visit him in the Melvir palace before he leaves. Return to speak with Eule. She
    will encourage Claudia to go out to the world and explore. Before you go,
    remember to take the chest inside Eule's house. Now it's time to go and visit
    Melvir!
    
    When you arrive in Melvir, you may take some time to explore around or you may
    go straight to the palace on 2F. Talk to the guards and Gian will come out to
    take you to meet Lord Neville, head of the Imperial guards. After a short
    meeting, Gian will take you to the Inn for a rest.
    
    The next day Gian introduces you to a well-known adventurer, Gray. Gray will
    join your party and unlock an overwhelming number of places. From now on, you
    are free to explore the world of Mardias!
    
    Note that before you complete the quest A Suspicious Demise (Quest 10), there
    may be a guy wandering around in Melvir 1F. He will walk towards you. He is
    actually an assassin and will attack you. In fact, you will meet the assassin
    with other main characters as well and he will attack you if Claudia is in your
    party. This assassin attempt is related to Claudia's true identity, which is
    revealed in Eule Gives a Hoot (Quest 25).
    
    
    
    
      -------------
          Jamil                                                           [RS305]
      =============
    
    Jamil is a thief in South Estamir. After watching some opening scenes, you gain
    control of Jamil with his good buddy, Dowd, joining the party. Now let's
    explore the city. Walking down the circular stairs to the lower part of the
    city, you can meet with another of Jamil's good friend, Farah. You can choose
    to give her the Silver Bracers you stole earlier. (I'm not sure if choosing
    one option or another will have any effect. I chose to give her the bracers.)
    
    After talking with Farah, you may visit the pub. Talk to the bartender and then
    the agent to the right for a job. This triggers the quest Wuhan's Secret.
    Visiting Farah's House, her mom will tell you that Farah is taken away by the
    loan shark. Now it's time to rescue her!
    
    Go to the Slave Trader's House and beat up the guys there. The slave trader
    will tell you that Farah is sent to Wuhan's secret place in the Amut temple in
    North Estamir. However, that place is guarded and a man is hard to get in.
    So... there is this brilliant idea. Jamil disguise as a woman.
    
    Either go through the sewers to North Estamir or take the boat for 10G. Enter
    the Temple of Amut and go to the right of the altar. Mistaking Jamil as a
    woman, the guard lets Jamil in.
    
    Inside Wuhan's Secret Room, other than Farah, you will also find Aisha. If you
    want to recruit Aisha, you may talk to her and she will join you. After talking
    with Farah, Wuhan arrives with two guards. Defeating the guards leaves Wuhan
    begging for his life. You have the options to forgive or kill Wuhan. Killing
    Wuhan affects future quest and scenes involving him. The most notable one is
    the Water Dragon Rite (Quest 31).
    
    After returning to Farah's House, you may talk to Farah for some jewels reward.
    Go to South Estamir pub to collect your gold reward from the agent. If you see
    Barbara in the pub, recruit her. When you are walking out of the pub, Dowd will
    indicate that he wants to leave the party and stay in Estamir. You can choose
    to keep him in the party or let him go. If you let him go, you will not be able
    to recruit him back into the party, but you may be able to recruit him with
    other main characters in future playthroughs. Refer to the section "Recruiting
    Dowd with Characters other than Jamil" under Miscellaneous Topics for more
    information.
    
    
    
    
      -----------
          Sif                                                             [RS306]
      ===========
    
    Sif is the hardest of the 8 characters to complete the introduction by ER 2.
    If you are trying to complete all the quests (or the Unsettling Settlement)
    with Sif, I recommend that you should have unlocked Darque in a previous
    playthrough first. Darque is comparatively strong in the early game. He will
    make the battles in your Sif's introduction a lot easier. More importantly,
    Darque possesses the proficiency Lurk, which is invaluable in helping to avoid
    monsters congested in the Shiverland slopes or caves. During Sif's
    introduction, you will fight six fixed battles. To finish the introduction by
    ER 2, you should avoid as many random monsters as possible. I recommend
    limiting the number of random battles to 3 or 4 during the entire introduction.
    If you unavoidably get into a battle, you may retreat from it without raising
    your ER, but it consumes your character's LP. Avoid chain battles because you
    cannot retreat from them.
    
    Sif is a strong and brave Valhallan warrior. When you gain control of Sif in
    Gato's Village, visit the village chief Gato and he will mention that the
    weather is getting unusually warm lately and monsters have infested the nearby
    caves. Your mission is to clear the monsters in the caves. If you have
    unlocked Darque, recruit him into your party and equip his Lurk proficiency.
    You may also spend some jewels to level up his Covert skills so that Lurk can
    last longer. Then go to the pub to recruit the Minstrel and Valhallan Warrior.
    Keep asking the Minstrel to sing until he joins. Now a party is formed, you are
    ready to go!
    
    There are three caves you need to clear--the West Cave, East Cave, and South
    Cave. The middle left arrow on the Shiverland map leads to the West Cave. The
    second arrow from the top on the right side leads to the East Cave. The bottom
    right arrow leads to the south slope. Go through the south slope and the South
    Cave will be to the left. To clear a cave, you only need to take out the fixed
    monster standing still on the screen at the end of the cave. You should ignore
    and avoid other random monsters.
    
    After clearing the caves, return to see Gato and receive your rewards. Go out
    of the house and talk to the kid standing in front of the slope leading to
    Gato's house. He informs you that there is a shipwreck. Leave the village and
    go down the slope to the right side. You will see a scene and rescue a boy
    named Albert.
    
    When you visit Gato again, you will be informed that the caves are infested
    again. Albert will offer to join you to repay for saving his life. It is always
    good to have an extra hand. Let him join and go to clear the caves again. Note
    that the West Cave and East Cave are still the same, but the South Cave has
    changed. The South Cave stage 2 has a second exit to an enclosed slope. Don't
    forget to get the chests there before you leave.
    
    Return to see Gato and receive your rewards again. Gato will give you a map and
    ask you to take Albert to the Knights Dominion. You now have access to
    Eugenstadt. When you walk out of the house, Gato will stop you and give you the
    Dragon's Eye. It used to shine but it has lost its glimmer. Refer to the quest
    the Dragon Knight for more information on restoring the Dragon's Eye.
    
    Leave the village and take the bottom left arrow of the map to exit Shiverland.
    Press the triangle button to go to the world map, select Knights Dominion and
    then Eugenstadt. In Eugenstadt, visit the castle and you will meet with Lord
    Heinrich. He is heading for Mirsaburg for the council of knights. Choose to go
    with him. After the council of knights, you may help Theodore and Raphael in
    the quest Pride of the Knights. However, we have more time-sensitive quests to
    do, so we will leave this for later. Take the ship from Mirsaburg to Yeoville.
    This will open up the places in Rosalia. Now you are free to explore the world.
    
    
    
    
      -------------
          Hawke                                                           [RS307]
      =============
    
    Hawke is a pirate of the Coral Sea and the captain of the pirate ship Lady
    Luck. You start at the Coral Sea where you may attack other ships. If you
    choose to let the ship go, you get 100G; otherwise, you get 300G. Different
    options give different alignment changes to the Gods. You will become more evil
    if you don't let them go. You may refer to Ramtieger's Game System FAQ for more
    information. Although the gold reward is attractive, you should avoid getting
    into too many battles since we need to finish the introduction by ER 2.
    
    Sail the ship to the middle cave (Cave C). Pass through the cave and you will
    reach Pirate Coast. Attend the assembly in the Pirate's Hideout and Butcher
    will challenge you to a duel to settle the matters. If you want to progress the
    game fast, you may choose to apologize. Then exiting the hideout and reentering
    will trigger the next scene. However, to fully see the scenes and experience
    Hawke's introduction, you should choose to accept the challenge. Go back to
    Lady Luck and sail back to Coral Sea. It will bring you to Mask Isle, only to
    find yourself being sold to the Imperial Navy by Butcher. As you escape back to
    Pirate Coast and plan to take a revenge on Butcher, he takes the intiative in
    accusing you of being a traitor. Now all the pirates will attack you. You
    should avoid as many pirates as possible to keep your ER low. Run back to the
    ship and leave Pirate Coast.
    
    After the shipwreck, you will end up in Godongo. You may check with the
    Volunteer Brigade to make sure your ER is no higher than 2.
    
    
    
    
      ---------------
          Barbara                                                         [RS308]
      ===============
    
    Barbara is a dancer of an entertainment troupe. This time they arrive in
    Weston. Barbara has next to none introduction. When you gain control of her,
    you are basically free to start your world exploration.
    
    Anyway, let's get off the wagon and explore Weston a bit since we are here.
    When Barbara goes into the pub, Minstrel will ask her to dance. After the
    dance, Minstrel gives a beautiful necklace to Barbara as a gift--the Amethyst.
    Minstrel then leaves the pub in a hurry. Now at this point, your adventure in
    Mardias officially starts.

            IV. Opening up the World                                      [RS400]
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    
    After having finished with the introduction, you are now free to roam the
    world of Mardias and take on various quests. Before taking on the quests,
    this section describes how you may open up the world.
    
    
    
      -----------------------
          A. By Character                                                 [RS410]

    This section describes how to open up the world of Mardias for each character.
    
    
    
        Albert and Sif                                                    [RS411]

       Desert. Talk to the lady to the left of the magic shop to unlock Steppes of
       Galessa. (Alternatively, you may recruit Aisha to unlock Steppes of
       Galessa.)

        Aisha                                                             [RS412]
      =========
    
    Continuing from Aisha's Introduction Walkthrough from the previous section,
    Aisha should now have access to Godongo, Northpoint, Uso, Steppes of Galessa,
    Crystal City, Altours, North Estamir, and South Estamir. You should have access
    to some more places depending on whether you recruited Barbara or Sif.
    
    1. If you did not recruit Barbara, you may now look for her in Northpoint, Uso,
       Crystal City, Altours, North Estamir, or South Estamir. She will open up
       Tarmitta, New Road, and Weston.
    
    2. If you did not recruit Sif, you may look for her in Altours or Crystal City.
       She will open up Yeoville, Mirsaburg, Eugenstadt, Shiverland, and Gato's
       Village. Alternatively, you may open up Yeoville by taking the ship from
       North Estamir for 50G. Then you may open up Mirsaburg by taking the ship
       from Yeoville for 50G. At Mirsaburg, talk to the old man to the right of the

    11. You may talk to the lady at the plaza in front of the guarded castle in
        Loban to unlock Isthmus (which I do not recommend unless you want to go
        there.)
    
    
    
        Gray and Claudia                                                  [RS413]

      =========
    
    After his introduction, Hawke has access to Godongo and Oapu.
    
    1. At Godongo, take the ship to Northpoint for 50G.
    
    2. At Northpoint, talk to the lady at the town entrance, who mentions
       about heading south to reach Rosalia. Walk out of Northpoint and it will
       bring you to Uso
    
    3. At Uso, talk to the man or the kid on the road to unlock Kaklim Desert. Talk
       to the lady to the left of the magic shop to unlock Steppes of Galessa. Then
       exit the town through the south entrance. This will automatically brings you
       to Crystal City.
    
    4. Check the pubs of Crystal City, Uso, and Northpoint for Barbara. Go back and
       forth on these three places until you find and recruit her.
    
    5. You may also take a ship from Oapu to Melvir for 80G. Recruit Gray if he is
       in the pub. He will open to Bafal, Rosalia, and Ligau Isle.

    1. Monsters to the East                 ER: N/A                       [QT001]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Albert's first quest.
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat Demon Scout in Isthmus Cavern.

        Proficiencies:
            - Isthmus Cavern: Find Chests
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This is Albert's first quest. Your objective is to eradicate the monsters in
    Isthmus Cavern. The Cavern is straigth forward but it is infested with
    monsters. It is not necessary to clear all the monsters. Instead, you only need
    to take out the boss. When you get to the end, you will get into your first
    boss fight with Demon Scout. Demon Scout has 888HP and it is a rather tough
    fight so early in the game. Make sure you have equipped the First-Aid Kit on
    one of your characters. Use the Balms on the Soldiers if needed. After you have
    defeated it, Albert will notice some markings on the wall. These markings will
    have some significance in the future. For now let's head back to the Castle
    and report to Lord Rudolf to receive your rewards.

    2. Assualt on the Isthmus Keep          ER: 0 - 22                    [QT002]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Albert's second quest.
        Complete Condition:
            - Speak to Prince Neidhart in Crystal City.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards:
            - Jewels
        Chests:
            - Isthmus Keep (secret passage): 2000G
        Proficiencies: N/A
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    After Prince Neidhart's visit, the Isthmus Keep throws a party in celebration
    for the prince's proposal to Diana. At the same time, Saruin's minion is
    plotting an attack against the castle. When Albert is woken up by the attack,
    head down to the throne room. Lord Rudolf will ask you to protect Diana and
    send a message to Prince Neidhart for aid. A secret passage is opened up. Get
    the 2000G in the chest there and leave.
    
    Diana and Albert are surrounded by monsters outside the castle. To save her
    brother, Diana throws Albert down the cliff. Rescued by Monica in Loban, Albert
    continues his journey to Bruelle and take a ship to Yeoville.
    
    The ship is wrecked in a storm and fate has brought Albert to an even farther
    place--Valhalland. Albert is rescued by Sif. To repay for saving him, Albert
    agrees to help Sif clear out the monsters in the nearby caves in the quest An
    Expeditionary Force (Quest 3). After the quest, Albert receives a map of the
    Knights Dominion and you now have access to Eugenstadt.
    
    Go through Shiverland to the world map and hit the triangle button to access
    the real world map. Choose Knights Dominion and then Eugenstadt. In Eugenstadt,
    you may visit the castle to start Pride of the Knights (Quest 14). Or you may
    just talk to the man near the weapon shops to open up Mirsaburg.
    
    Travel to Mirsaburg and take the ship to Yeoville. Then leave Yeoville and head
    for Crystal City. Visiting Prince Neidhart in the Crystal Palace completes this
    quest.

    3. An Expeditionary Force               ER: 0 - 22                    [QT003]
        Trigger Condition:
            - After Albert is rescued in Valhalland. This quest is for
              Albert and Sif only.
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat the bosses in the West Cave, East Cave, and South Cave
              in Shiverland.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards:
            - 200G and Jewels
        Chests:
            - West Cave: West Cave Map, 300G + Weapon, 500G + Gothic Armor,
                         100G + (Weapon or Armor), 100G + Jewels, Jewels
            - South Cave (Stage 2): South Cave Map, 500G + Weapon, Quality Balm,
                                    1600G + Quarterstaff, Gold + Bone Breastplate
        Proficiencies:
            - West Cave: Find Chests, Jump Lv.1-2
            - South Cave: Find Chests, Disarm Traps, Jump Lv.1-3
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    There are three caves you need to clear--the West Cave, East Cave, and South
    Cave. The middle left arrow on the Shiverland map leads to the West Cave. The
    second arrow from the top on the right side leads to the East Cave. The bottom
    right arrow leads to the south slope. Go through the south slope and the South
    Cave will be to the left. To clear a cave, you only need to take out the fixed
    monster standing still on the screen at the end of the cave. You may ignore
    other random monsters. The South Cave stage 2 has a second exit to an enclosed
    slope. Don't forget to get the chests there before you leave. After you kill
    the boss in West Cave, go forward and you will see a chest behind a jump point.
    If you have level 2 Jump, you will be able to get the 500G and Gothic Armor
    inside the chest.

    4. Voice of the Blade                   ER: 0 - 22                    [QT004]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Gray only. Pull out the Rusted Falcata from the ground at
              Treasure Cave 3F.
        Complete Condition:
            - Temper the Falcata to +7 and defeat Sword Demon.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards:
            - Demonbrand
        Chests: N/A
        Proficiencies: N/A
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Although any main character can get the Rusted Falcata and temper it to +7,
    only Gray may trigger and complete this quest.
    
    You can find a rusted sword at the first intersection of Treasure Cave B3.
    After you pull it out, the sword will talk to Gray and prompt you to temper it
    with bronze. When you return to Jelton, you may temper it with bronze at the
    blacksmith shop.
    
    When you temper it, you will see that the material name (bronze) appears in red
    at the bottom right. That means the material is harmonious to the weapon. To
    complete the tempering process, you will need to use the Falcata in battles
    until its name change to Falcata+1. This process is called breaking-in the
    material. Note that you do not need to actually break the weapon by using up
    its DP. You just need to use it enough number of times for it to break-in. When
    the Falcata turns to +1, the material name will no longer be red.
    
    Return to town when the Falcata turns to +1 and the sword will talk to Gray
    again. This time it prompts you to temper it with Rosalian Steel. Continue
    the process until it turns to Falcata+7. Most of the materials used in
    tempering the Falcata will make its DP modifier to be negative. You may adjust
    the DP modifier to be more positve at the blacksmith to reduce DP cost of the
    techs. Make sure you use the Falcata on a character whose class has Katana as
    part of the class skills. Leveling up the class should help to reduce DP cost
    as well. In the extreme case, you may need to use regular Katana attacks to
    conserve DP.
    
    When it turns to +7, the final scene will occur when you enter a town. And
    immediately after, you will need to fight the demon who possessed blade--Sword
    Demon. Sword Demon has 16,566HP, but your party should be strong enough to
    handle it by the time you fully temper the Falcata. After defeating it, Gray
    will receive the Demonbrand and his outfit will change slightly. The Demonbrand
    inherits the mode(s) from the Falcata and cannot be changed again.
    
    If you want to rest in town or change the mode on the Falcata when it turns to
    +7, you may go to South Estamir or Melvir, where the scene does not trigger.
    From South Estamir, you may further take the boat to North Estamir and then the
    ship to Bruelle. In Bruelle, you may change your Falcata to any mode(s) that
    you want on the Demonbrand permanently. When you are ready, just go to the
    world map and visit some other towns to trigger the final scene.
    
    The following table lists the materials needed for tempering the Falcata.
    
             Name                    Material              Can Be Bought At
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Falcata   -> Falcata+1         Bronze                Jelton (blacksmith)
    Falcata+1 -> Falcata+2         Rosalian Steel        Crystal City (blacksmith)
    Falcata+2 -> Falcata+3         Southern Iron         Bruelle (blacksmith)
    Falcata+3 -> Falcata+4         Marcasite             Altours, Aurefont*
    Falcata+4 -> Falcata+5         Steel Thread          Aurefont**
    Falcata+5 -> Falcata+6         Meteoric Iron         --
    Falcata+6 -> Falcata+7         Mullock-7             --
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *  To buy Marcasite, you need at least level 15 shop clout.
    ** To buy Steel Thread, you need at least level 12 shop clout.
    
    Meteoric Iron can be dropped by Death Croakers, Alsaks, and Armored Jelly.
    
    There are 7 types of mullock and there is no distinction in their names.
    However, to get Falcata+7, only mullock-7 works. This mullock can be dropped
    by Cyclops, Guardians in Auldburg, Mummy, and Zombie Dragons. Zombie Dragon
    is usually the best monster to hunt for the right mullock since they only drop
    mullock-7. To get into fights with zombie dragons, you may try the Estamir
    Sewers 3F or the Vampire Den. These places are filled with Undeads. It was also
    suggested that the Undead monster in the Mine Assaulted quest usually results
    in a zombie dragon. However, in my opinion, the best way is to plan ahead and
    open up Jewel Beast's Lair early. There are 4 fixed battles in the lair with
    zombie dragons. Save before the fight and reset if no mullock is dropped. Refer
    to the quest The Jewel Beast (Quest 33) for more information.
    
    
    
    
    
        Common Quests                                                     [RS522]
      =================
    
    These quests are open to all eight main characters. However, some quests may
    have parts which are specific for certain characters only. The details are
    noted in the quests.
    
    In this guide, the common quests are ordered according to the suggested ER to
    complete the quests. Again, it is just my suggestion and you may do the quests
    in any order you feel like. For example, if you are playing Claudia, you may
    want to do Innkeeper's Daughter and A Suspicious Demise before doing Unsettling
    Settlemnt.
    
    If you are to follow the suggested ER, you will need to actively avoid random
    monsters to keep your ER from going up too fast. However, if you are good at
    dodging monsters, you can complete the quests in even tighter ER bound.

    This quest is mainly for Barbara. When you start the game as Barbara, visit
    the pub in Weston. The Minstrel will ask you to dance. After the dance, he will
    give you the Amethyst as a gift. If your main character is not Barbara, simply
    recruit Barbara and you will complete this quest automatically. The Amethyst is
    equipped on her. Obtaining the fatestone Amethyst unlocks the Faerie's Grove on
    the map.

    6. Faerie's Grove                       ER: 0 - 22                    [QT006]

        Complete Condition:
            - Collect and put the 5 Spirits on the pedestals surrounding
              the throne.
        Failing Condition:
            - Defeat Strom before getting the Water Spirit.
            - Open the door to Strom's chamber with Strom's Jewels collected
              in the Water Dragon Temple before getting the Water Spirit.
        Rewards:
            - Faeries' Crown and Jewels
            - The main character receives two extra LP.
            - The main character receives an additional +1 BP regen.
        Chests: None
        Proficiencies: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Before you start this quest, you first need to unlock the Faerie's Grove on the
    world map. There are two ways of doing so:
    1. Obtain the fatestone Amethyst (Quest 5).
    2. Lose to the King of the Jungle (the Mummy) during Oh, Mummy! (Quest 7)
    
    The Faerie's Grove floats around the world and may appear in different area at
    different time. Visit the grove for the first time and talk to all the faeries.
    After you have triggered the quest, leave the grove. When you visit the grove
    a second time, you should see the throne with a glowing barrier. Go to the
    innermost area of the grove and talk to the faerie who mentions about the
    five Spirits being the key to unlock the barrier. This should now appears in
    your quest notes.
    
    Having activated the quest, the rest is to collect the five Spirits. Here are
    the locations of the Spirits:
    
    Wood Spirit - Mazewood
    Fire Spirit - Mt. Tomae B4
    Earth Spirit - Great Pit B5
    Water Spirit - Water Dragon Temple B3
    Gold Spirit - After you have collected all four other Spirits, return to the
                  grove and talk to the first faerie in the innermost area. He
                  will give you the Gold Spirit.
    
    Note that if you do not visit the grove at least two times to learn about the
    spirits, you may not be able to find them.
    
    After you have collected all 5 Spirits, go to the throne and put them on the
    pedestals. The King of the Faeries will award you the Faeries' Crown. In
    addition, your main character will be blessed with 2 extra LP and an extra +1
    BP regen. Note that BP regen is capped at +7, so Claudia does not get the BP
    regen bonus when her max BP is 50 or above.

    7. Oh, Mummy!                           ER: 0 - 22                    [QT007]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Agree to help the mummy merchant in North Estamir pub.
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat the King of the Jungle.
        Failing Condition: None

            - Mummy and Jewels
        Chests: None
        Proficiencies: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Near the door in North Estamir pub, the mummy merchant wants you to escort him
    down to the catacombs in Estamir Tunnels. Agreeing to help him will trigger
    this quest.
    
    Once you are down in the sewers, take a turn at the first left and then take
    a turn again at the next left. This should bring you to the catacombs. After
    it is done, you will receive 1500G and jewels for your service.
    
    Although the quest seems to be completed at this point, there is actually more.
    As the game progresses, the mummy merchant will move along the towns on the new
    road until he reaches Oapu. You can also force him to move to the next town
    by talking to him. His path is Altours, Crystal City, Uso, Northpoint, Godongo,
    and then Oapu.
    
    To trigger the next part, talk to him when he is at the dock of Oapu. He will
    mention about potential buyer in Melvir. Now take the ship from Oapu to Melvir.
    
    On the ship, the mummy has come back to life and sucks blood. You need to
    search inside the ship to warn other passengers. Depending on how many
    passengers you save, the number of Animated Corpses appears in the next battle
    will change. Search the Ship's Hold until you get into the battle with the
    King of the Jungle (the Mummy).
    
    If you win the battle, you will obtain a Mummy and a bunch of jewels. You can
    make a Mummy Tonic at Melvir Apothecary with the Mummy. If you lose the battle,
    you will end up on Mask Isle. After some time, the night will fall and you will
    be able to enter the Faerie's Grove.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This quest has the earliest closing ER among all quests. And it takes place in
    Frontier where only Barbara has access to in the early game. It is easy to miss
    this quest.
    
    Recruit Barbara to open up Weston. At Weston, talk to the lady between the inn
    and the item shop to open up Yassi. In Yassi, talk to the girl on the first
    platform to unlock Yassi Cavern. Then talk to the mother on the next platform
    about her missing son.
    
    With enough information, it is time to go to Yassi Cavern. On the first level,
    there are two slimes blocking the way. They have high resistance to physical
    attacks. You may need to unleash some weapon techs to damage them. If you have
    any attack magic spells, they should be easy.
    
    At B2, you will find the boss near the end of the cave. I know you are eager
    to kill it, but let's hold back for a moment and get the chest located at the
    very end of the cave first. You will be back to Yassi automatically after you
    defeat the boss. Talk with the mother for your rewards before you move on for
    the next quest.

    has a hand in this. Now let's visit Ward at the shop on 2F. He denies that he
    killed Buck, but he gives some very useful clue about some shady guys in red
    robe that hide in the sewers.
    
    Now it is at night, follow the priest in red robe into the underground temple
    in the sewers. They are sacrificing a girl to Saruin and she is actually the

    a reward. You may choose weapon (Silver Fleuret), armor (Chain Mail), or

        Note:
            - If your main character is Claudia, you may start this quest
              at ER 0-2 after talking with Gian.
        Trigger Condition:
            - Visit Aurefont during the appropriate ER.
        Complete Condition:
            - Find the Stolen Goods and enter Patrick's house.
        Failing Condition:
            - Reach ER 6 before completing the quest.
            - Ignore the thieves in Melvir Sewers.

        Rewards:
            - 2500G and Jewels
        Chests:
            - Melvir Sewers: Melvir Sewers Map, 100G + Jewels, Hunting Bow,

        Proficiencies:
            - Melvir Sewers: Find Chests, Pick Locks
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    When you visit Aurefont at the appropriate ER, you will find this town looks
    deserted. A man in the middle of the town informs you that monsters are
    attacking the depository. Go forward and turn left to the depository, you will
    see two soldiers lying on the floor in front of the depository door. When you
    go in, monsters are carrying all the gold and they escaped, leaving you to
    battle a Morlock, which should be easy. After the fight, you will meet with
    Patrick, the Imperial Treasurer. However, he seems to care less about the lost
    gold.
    
    Go to Melvir and go down the sewers by the Police Station. Take a left at the
    first intersection and then take a right. Go forward and eventually you will
    see a bunch of thieves. Defeat them and you will obtain the Stolen Goods, which
    is actually the gold stolen in Aurefont. Thinking that the thieves stole the
    goods from the house in front of you, go up there and you will meet with
    Patrick again. Note that if you leave the sewers after you have gotten the
    goods, the door to Patrick's house will be locked when you come back.
    
    While you are confronting Patrick about the goods, Melvir police comes to
    arrest him for embezzlement. Although it seems that the thieves were stealing
    the gold from Patrick's house, but it could be a conspiracy to frame Patrick.
    Anyway, the Emperor places Patrick under house arrest.
    
    After completing this quest, you may go back to Patrick's house to recruit him.
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Claudia...
    At the end of the quest, the Emperor will ask Claudia what her name is...

            - Talk to the bartender and the agent in South Estamir pub.
        Complete Condition:
            - Find Wuhan's secret room and rescue the maidens.
        Failing Condition:
            - Reach ER 6 before completing the quest.
        Rewards:
            - 2500G and Jewels
        Chests: None
        Proficiencies: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Talk to the bartender and then the guy to the right in South Estamir pub to
    trigger this quest. It is said that Wuhan, Kjaraht's Potentate, has accumulated
    a selection of maidens. Your mission is to find where he hides them. At the
    same time, if you visit Farah's house, her mom will tell you the loan shark has
    taken Farah away.
    
    Down at the Estamir Tunnels, you may find the Slave Market. You have the option
    to let the slaves go. However, at this point of time I am still not sure what
    impact it may do to the game.
    
    From the man outside the Temple of Amut in North Estamir, Wuhan seems to have
    come to the temple very often lately. It sounds suspicious. Go into the temple
    and take a right from the altar. You will find Wuhan's secret room. If your
    main character is female, the door guard will let you through. If your main
    character is male, you will have to fight your way in. Inside the room, you may
    see Aisha if she is not already in your party. You may talk to her to recruit
    her if you have an empty slot in your party. When you are ready, talk to Farah
    to continue the event. Jamil will come to rescue her if your main character is
    female. At the same time, Wuhan has come with two guards. After defeating the
    guards, you have the options to spare Wuhan or kill him. Killing him will
    affect future quest and scenes involving him. The most notable one is the Water
    Dragon Rite (Quest 31).
    
    When it is done, you will be back to Farah's house. Talk to Farah to collect
    your jewel rewards. Remember to talk to the agent in South Estamir pub for your
    gold rewards as well.
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Jamil...
    This quest is Jamil's first quest. After Farah is taken away, you may go to the
    Slave Trader's House and beat up the guys there. The slave trader will tell you
    that Farah is sent to Wuhan's secret place in the Amut temple in North Estamir.
    However, that place is guarded and a man is hard to get in. Jamil will disguise
    as a woman to pass through the door guard.

            - Talk to the two men in Oapu pub about hearing lizard cries behind
              the weapon shop.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The two men in Oapu pub talk about hearing lizard cries behind the weapon shop.
    Go up the slope and walk behind Walon Weapons shop. You will hear faint noise
    of lizard cries. This step is required and make sure you do it. If Guella Ha is
    not in your party, recruit him from Northpoint pub. Then go to the Geckling
    Cave in the Jungle Entrance area.
    
    Inside the cave, push the first rock to the light on the left to open the
    door in front. Pushing it to the other light will open the door on the left.
    That room may have some ores, but there are also monsters. In the next chamber,
    push the second rock to the bottom left light to open the door to the left. If
    you have Find Traps proficiency, you may open a passage at B2. At the end of
    the passage you will find a chest with a Leather Jerkin, which is pretty useful
    at low ER. After you have gotten the treasures, go to the next area to reach
    the Geckling Village.
    
    The Geckling chief does not like humans. He tells you that humans came and
    enslaved the Gecklings. Now leave the cave and go back to the weapon shop in
    Oapu to confront the weapon shop owner. Defeat the Bodyguard and two Stray
    Wolves to release the Gecklings. Return to the Geckling chief for your rewards.
    
    After you have completed the quest, if you talk to the Geckling standing near
    the second house in the Geckling Village, he will tell you about the Ancient
    Scroll. This triggers the Ancient Texts (Quest 26). Then if you talk to the
    Geckling standing near the village entrance, he will tell you about Silver's
    Treasure (Quest 37). Talk to the chief again and he will give you the
    Geckling's Map.

    14. Pride of the Knights                ER: 3 - 7                     [QT014]
        Note:
            - If your main character is Albert or Sif, you may start this quest
              at ER 0-2.
        Trigger Condition:
            - Talk to Lord Heinrich in Eugenstadt Castle and follow him to
              Mirsaburg to attend the council of knights.
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat the boss at Abandoned Keep B1.
        Failing Condition:
            - Reach ER 8 before completing the quest.
        Rewards:
            - 2000G and Jewels (1000G and Jewels)

                              Silver Mask, Weapon, (Weapon or Jewels),
                              (Weapon or Jewels), Armor
        Proficiencies:
            - Abandoned Keep: Find Chests, Disarm Traps, Jump Lv.1
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    When you visit Lord Heinrich in Eugenstadt Castle, he indicates that he has to
    attend the council of knights in Mirsaburg. Follow him and Raphael to Mirsaburg
    and attend the council of knights. The council discusses whether to send forces
    to clear monsters out of the recently infested abandoned fortress, Dellsdale.
    Although Lord Theodore of Mirsaburg Castle pushes for it, the majority of the
    knights votes against it. Theodore and Raphael decide to do it themselves.
    
    Before they leave for the Abandoned Keep, you can offer to help them. However,
    if you do not have at least two empty spots in your party, they will not join
    you and will leave for the keep. You will then have to talk to the man at the
    left outside Mirsaburg Castle to open up Abandoned Keep on the map. When you
    are at the keep, you will see Theodore and Raphael near the entrance. At this
    time, you can invite them again if you have two empty spots.
    
    Regardless of whether you have enough room for Theodore and Raphael, it is
    important to still choose the option to offer help. If you decline to help,
    you will not be able to complete Constance Kidnapped (Quest 28).
    
    On 2F of Abandoned Keep, take a right at the cross intersection. When you walk
    through the fractured floor into the room, the floor will shake but it will not
    break. You should walk on the fractured section until it crumbles so that you
    drop down to 1F. Walk on the next fractured floor will drop you down to B1.
    Defeating the boss at the end of this level completes the quest.
    
    If you have ever got Theodore and Raphael in your party during the quest (but
    you do not have to complete the quest with them in the party), you will get the
    good completion and receive 2000G rewards. The people in the Dominion will be
    grateful to you. If you complete the quest without Theodore and Raphael ever
    being in your party, you will get the bad completion and only receive 1000G.
    Your jewels reward will also be a bit less and their reaction towards you is a
    lot less friendly.
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Albert...
    During the council of knights, the scene will have extra dialogue in which
    Albert speaks up about the fall of Isthmus.
    
    
    -- About the Puzzle in Abandoned Keep...
    You may have noticed that there is a gate on Abandoned Keep 2F you cannot open.
    Return to the keep later and this gate will be opened. The room behind the gate
    leads to 3F, where a puzzle is waiting for you. To solve the puzzle, you have
    to hit the corresponding button on your controller after you step on a floor
    tile. For example, if it shows a triangle after you step on the floor tile, you
    should hit the triangle button fast. There are four statues at the end. You
    will also have to have hit all four shapes to clear the statues. Make use of
    the Quicksave feature to make it easier. On the other side of the puzzle is a
    fixed fight with a Cyclops and a bunch of Elementals. They are powerful at this
    ER and you may not be able to defeat them until much later. In fact, the
    Cyclops is useful for farming certain tempering materials such as Black Steel.
    It is a good idea to leave it alone. The items they are guarding are not very
    useful or powerful anyway.

            - South Cave: Find Chests, Disarm Traps, Jump Lv.1-3
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    For main characters other than Albert and Sif, you have to have Sif in your
    party to activate this quest. Once the quest is activated, you may dismiss Sif
    and complete the quest without her. Note that Albert does not have access to
    this quest.
    
    Gato, the elder of Gato's Village, mentions that the weather is getting
    unusually warm lately and monsters have infested the nearby caves. Your mission
    is to clear the monsters in the caves.
    
    There are three caves you need to clear--the West Cave, East Cave, and South
    Cave. The middle left arrow on the Shiverland map leads to the West Cave. The
    second arrow from the top on the right side leads to the East Cave. The bottom
    right arrow leads to the south slope. Go through the south slope and the South
    Cave will be to the left. To clear a cave, you only need to take out the fixed
    monster standing still on the screen at the end of the cave. You may ignore
    other random monsters. The South Cave has three stages. When the ice melts,
    the cave gets larger and larger. There are different treasures in different
    stage. After you defeat the boss in West Cave, a chunk of the "ice gate" in the
    cave will be gone and you will have access to an inner area of the cave.
    
    One thing worth mentioning is the piglet/lamb mini-quest when clearing the
    South Cave Stage 3. Normally, the path to the boss is blocked. You need to
    rescue five piglets/lambs from the monsters and they will help you open up the
    path. Defeat the boss to rescue the last piglet/lamb.
    
    This quest can be completed multiple times, making it a good source of jewel
    income. After you have completed it once, you may come back at a later ER to
    complete it again. It seems that this quest can be completed once each ER.
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Sif...
    This quest is Sif's first quest. Gato will ask you to clear the caves of
    monsters. Because Sif has to clear these caves twice in her introduction, if
    you want to do Unsettling Settlement with Sif, you will have to avoid all
    random monsters if possible.

    In Jelton, Ligau Isle, everyone is either talking about the hidden treasure
    in the plains or the dinosaur eggs. Talking to everyone in town reveals that
    the Treasure Cave is near a large flower field and the shallow pit may have
    dinosaur eggs.
    
    Let's head out to the plains and start looking for treasure! The first
    destination is the cave located at the bottom right of the plains map. The
    Treasure Cave is long, but it should be straight forward. When you arrive at
    the first intersection of Treasure Cave B3, you will see a Rusty Sword.
    Although all main characters may use this sword, only Gray can complete the
    quest related to it--Voice of the Blade (Quest 4).
    
    Continue on to the end of the cave, you will see a beastman standing at a dead
    end. The beastman will call out some company and a battle starts. After
    defeating them, a chest with the plain treasure appears. It contains 500 gold
    and a Longbow. Taking the treasure completes the quest.
    
    Now let's get the dinosaur egg. The Dinosaur Nest is the cave nearest to the
    plains exit leading to Jelton (the leftmost middle cave on the map). A few
    dinosaurs inhabit this cave and the egg is at the end of the cave. The
    dinosaurs normally do not chase you; however, once you get the egg, they will
    keep chasing you in a frenzy. One way to get out of the cave safely is that
    before you get the egg, get into battle with the dinosaurs and then retreat.
    They will then disappear. (If you have the egg, they will not disappear even if
    you retreat.) Another easy way is to use the proficiency Lurk.
    
    Later in the game, you may find more dinosaur eggs in Plains Hollow. According
    to the Brady Guide, the eggs appear in the following locations depending on the
    number of victories you have achieved:
    
    Number of Victories        Dinosaur Egg Location

        150 - 160            Plains Hollow, Southwest Area

    17. The Fiends of Saoki                 ER: 4 - 22                    [QT017]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Talk to the old man at the back of Saoki.
            - You may not activate this quest if Jewel Beast has destroyed Saoki.
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat the boss in Saoki Cavern B3.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards:
            - 1000G and Jewels
        Chests:
            - Saoki Cavern: Saoki Cavern Map, 700G + Weapon, 200G + Armor,

                            Climb Lv.2-3, Jump Lv.2-3
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    To open up Saoki, you need to talk to the lady who stands between the inn and
    the item shop in Weston. If she opens up Yassi for you, exit and re-enter
    Weston and talk to her a second time. In Saoki, the Mayor (the old man at the
    back) indicates that monsters are terrorizing in a cave near Saoki and opens up
    Saoki Cavern.
    
    In Saoki Cavern B1, you will encounter your first fixed fight with two War
    Beasts after you take a right at the first intersection. At B2, you will have
    a second fixed fight with five Greater Zombies if you take a right at the
    intersection again. At B3, you will get to the boss, which is three
    Butterflies, if you go straight after the first turn. Defeating the boss
    completes the quest.
    
    Although it is possible to bypass the first two fixed battles, you should kill
    them if you are interested in unlocking Jewel Beast's Lair and fighting the
    sleeping Jewel Beast. You may refer to The Jewel Beast (Quest 33) for more
    information.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    When your ER reaches 6, Marina will appear in any coastal town. She is looking
    for stolen nymph statues. One has been returned, but two are still missing.
    
    To progress the quest, go to Aurefont and complete the quest A Bodyguard for
    Louie (Quest 19). Louie is trying to sell the nymph statue to the priests at
    Yucomb's Temple. But at last, he is no more and the statue is returned.
    
    Now we need to look for the last statue. Visit the Yucomb's Temple in South
    Estamir. The priest informs you that they have seen no one with the statue.
    Speculating that the statue is still in North Estamir, let's try the North
    Estamir pub. Talk with the bartender and the two men and you will know the guy
    with the statue is in the Estamir Tunnels.
    
    Follow Marina down the Estarmir Tunnels until you reach B3. Save the guy by
    defeating the Coral Crab and the two Gunfish. After the battle, Marina
    convinces him to return the statue. Accompany them to Northpoint to throw the
    statue back into the sea. After everything is done, you receive jewels as
    your rewards and Marina returns to the sea.

        Proficiencies: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This is a short quest and it is part of the quest Stolen Nymphs (Quest 18). To
    activate this quest, meet Marina to start Stolen Nymphs and then talk to Louie
    in Aurefont. Louie is the man who is holding a package outside the Silver Mine
    shop.
    
    When you talk to Louie, he will ask you to protect him and he will pay you
    1000G upfront for your service. After escorting him to Melvir Yucomb's Temple,
    he tries to sell the nymph statue to the priests. At night in the inn, monsters
    attack. Defeat them and return to the temple with Louie the next day.

    20. Neville's Request                   ER: 6 - 22                    [QT020]
        Note:
            - Cannot trigger this quest if Gian is in your party.
            - Ailing Emperor (Quest 27) takes precedence over this quest.
        Trigger Condition:
            - Read Neville's note in Melvir pub.
        Complete Condition:
            - Rescue Gian and defeat the boss in Loban Dungeons.
        Failing Condition:

        Chests:
            - Loban Dungeons: Loban Underground Map, 100G, 200G, 300G + Armor
        Proficiencies: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    If you read the note posted in Melvir pub or talk to the police in Melvir
    Police Station, you will be informed that Lord Neville is looking for you.
    Note that the triggering of Ailing Emperor (Quest 27) takes precedence over
    this quest during ER 9-13.
    
    Go to the Melvir Palace and visit Lord Neville. His room is to the right. He
    informs you that Gian is missing while he is investigating the Duke of Loban.
    If you agree to help Neville rescuing Gian, he will ask you to meet Monica who
    lives on the outskirts of Loban. And the password is "Rain from Eurus."
    
    Take a left when you enter Loban and you will find Monica's house. Tell her the
    password and that Neville sent you. She will then tell you that Gian is kept in
    the dungeon. Go to the house with the red charm hanging outside. In the house,
    insist to stay and the guard will attack you when you open up the secret
    passage.
    
    You will find Gian inside, but it is a trap! Falling into the Loban Dungeons,
    you and Gian decide to find an exit. If your party has an empty spot, Gian will
    join you temporarily (you can always recruit him in Melvir Palace again after
    the quest). At the end of the cave, you will have to fight three Land Serpents.
    Defeat them and get out of the dungeons.
    
    After Gian has left, go back to Loban and talk to Monica for your rewards. You
    will get 5000G and a bunch of jewels.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Check the notice posted in Melvir pub to trigger this quest. The triggering
    of Neville's Request (Quest 20) and Ailing Emperor (Quest 27) takes precedence
    over this quest. You need to complete (or fail) those quests before you start
    this one.
    
    Checking the notice will bring you to the residence. Talk with the couple to
    learn more about the butterfly. When you leave the house, it is already at
    night. When you walk out of the residential district, you will see a butterfly
    and follow it to Mazewood.
    
    In Mazewood, you are supposed to follow the butterfly. Go upward and take a
    left. In the next area, you mostly only need to go straight upward and you will
    come to an area with some glowing grass and a skull. Check the skull and grass
    to obtain Corpse's Pendant and Noctilucence Grass. Return to the residence with
    these items.

                          Climb Lv.5 (for Donkey Bone)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    In Crystal City pub, the two men by the bar are talking about getting Avi's
    Feather as a test of courage. Only King Karl I of Rosalia and Prince Neidhart
    have ever returned with one of the feathers.
    
    If you have access to Crystal Palace (with Albert in your party), Neidhart will
    tell you that you should just pick up a feather from Avi's nest and not to
    pluck one off him. Meeting Neidhart is not a necessary step. Although it will
    add a line to your quest notes, you may want to avoid meeting him if you have
    not ever seen him earlier in the current playthrough, because it can adversely
    affect a later quest. See The Dragon Knight (Quest 49) for more information.
    
    Now it's time to climb Mt. Scurve. Go forward up the slope and turn left. Keep
    going left to Hole 3. Go through Hole 3 and arrive in the Fifth Station. Then
    go up a few slopes to reach Hole 6. You will arrive in the Eighth Station after
    passing through Hole 6. Climb up to the top left and you will eventually reach
    the Summit. Check the Feather at the Summit to obtain Avi's Feather.
    
    Avi will appear and ask you to help him get the Ignigarde from Pyrix, who
    dwells in Mt. Tomae, Ligau Isle. Agreeing to help him will activate The
    Ignigarde (Quest 41). Then he will send you back to the entrance of Mt. Scurve.
    
    If you are in need of gold, you may sell the Avi's Feather. It has no other
    significance in future events as far as I know.

        Note:
            - You may start this quest at ER 0-9 after you activate The Ignigarde
              (Quest 41).
        Trigger Condition:
            - Talk to the bartender in Jelton pub when the town is overrun by
              monsters.
        Complete Condition:
            - Talk to Pyrix to stop the monsters in Jelton.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards: None
        Chests:

        Proficiencies:
            - Mt. Tomae: Find Chests, Disarm Traps, Find Ore, Mine, Jump Lv.1
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    When your ER reaches 10 or as soon as you have activated The Ignigarde
    (Quest 41), Jelton will be overrun by monsters. Talking to the bartender in the
    pub, it seems that the monsters come from Mt. Tomae.
    
    Exit Jelton to the Plains and take the exit indicated by an arrow at the bottom
    of the Plains map. When you are at the world map, choose Mt. Tomae. Work your
    way down to B5 to meet with Pyrix. Pyrix indicates that the monsters attacking
    Jelton are not under his control. To prove his good intentions, he agrees to
    help with the monster problem. He also opens up the short cut for you.
    
    Now that you have access to Pyrix, you may perform the "Pyrix trick" to spark
    many techniques at early ER. For more information, refer to "Pyrix Trick" in
    section VIII. Tricks and Exploitations.

            - You may start this quest at ER 0-6 if your main character is Aisha
              and you were kidnapped during her introduction.

            - Desert Ruins/Nisa Cavern: Find Chests, Pick Locks, Disarm Traps,
                                        Find Ore, Mine, Jump Lv.2
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This quest is triggered if you visit the Taralian Camp with Aisha in your party
    during the appropriate ER. You will find the Camp empty and Aisha will be
    running around calling out in Taralian for her people. Follow and talk to
    Aisha to continue. Note that if you recruit Aisha at ER 7 or above, she will
    tell you that she is looking for her missing people. In that case, you will not
    be able to trigger the scene above nor to get the quest notes. Nevertheless,
    you can still get the Topaz and Sword of Earth.
    
    There is no clue on where the Taralians go. However, if you visit Avi, he will
    tell you that he saw a group of people going into the Kaklim Desert. This step
    is not a requirement to progress the quest. You may skip it and head for the
    Kaklim Desert directly.
    
    If you do not have access to Kaklim Desert, talk to the kid or the man on the
    paved road in Uso to unlock it. Kaklim Desert is big and you may easily get
    lost if this is your first time there. The best way is to first visit
    Northpoint and then go to Kaklim Desert from Northpoint. Then you may hug the
    right wall until you reach a stream of drifting sands flowing to the right.
    Hop into the drifting sands and it will bring you to the Central Area where the
    Desert Ruins are located.
    
    There are three entrances to the ruins and only one will lead to the correct
    place, but you may explore the other two if you are looking for a few random
    chests. After you enter the Central Area, hug the left edge until you come to
    the ruins. Go up the slope onto the ruins and the first entrance (the hole on
    the floor) you see is the right entrance.
    
    Work your way down to B2 and you will see a big monster blocking the way. The
    Clawbug is quite powerful at low ER. It can attack up to two times a turn and
    it has 2619HP. If you have the Aerology spell Blood Curdle, it has a chance of
    inflicting unconsciousness on the big bug, giving you a few free turns.
    
    Defeat the bug and continue down to Nisa Cavern. At 1F, you will meet a tribe
    of people called the Terranites. If your main character is not Aisha,
    Jephtimith, the elder of the Terranites, will ask you to leave. Ignore him for
    now and keep going down to 2F. After you defeat another Clawbug at the end of
    2F, you will reach Merholm, where the Taralians are hiding. Talking to Aisha's
    grandfather completes the quest.
    
    You will find the Temple of Nisa across the bridge in Merholm. Pray to Nisa at
    the altar before you take the fatestone Topaz. On your way out, talk to
    Jephtimith and he will ask what Nisa bids you to do. Telling him you are to
    put a stop to Saruin, he will deem you a Great Warrior of Nisa and give you the
    Sword of Earth.
    
    Note that you can get the Topaz and Sword of Earth without recruiting Aisha
    to trigger this quest. However, the quest "Missing Taralians" will not appear
    in your quest notes.
    
    The exit of the Desert Central Area can be tricky to find when you visit it the
    first time. If you have trouble getting out of the Central Area, just hug the
    right hand side where the sands keep flowing down after you exit the ruins.
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Aisha...
    When you visit the empty Taralian Camp, go into Nizam's camp and come back out.
    Aisha will call out in Taralian for her people to trigger the quest.
    
    When you talk to Jephtimith, he will recognize Aisha as a Taralian and tell
    Aisha to go down to Merholm to find her grandfather.
    
    When Aisha talks to her grandfather Nizam, he will tell Aisha the full story of
    why the Taralians are hiding.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    If your main character is Claudia or if Claudia is in your party, you will hear
    Eule calling out to Claudia when you sleep at an inn during the appropriate ER.
    Choose to accompany Claudia to Mazewood to continue the quest.
    
    In Mazewood, go north and take a left. In the second area, either go north or
    take a left at the first intersection. In the third area, go towards the left
    until you see a path leading to the north. In the next area, you will find
    Eule's house. The directions may be a bit too simple, but I am sure you will
    find your way there.
    
    When you talk to Eule, she will reveal the true identity of Claudia. After Eule
    passes away, you may take the Eule's Hat and Eule's Staff.
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Claudia...
    At the end of the quest, when you leave the area through the south exit, you
    will trigger a short scene of Claudia saying goodbye with Sylvan and Brau.
    After the scene, they leave your party permanently.
    
    If you prefer to keep Sylvan and Brau while completing this quest, you may
    first work on Ancient Texts (Quest 26) up to the point where you need Eres's
    Medallion. At ER 9 or above, visit Eule to complete this quest. Then instead of
    leaving through the south, head north to the big tree. This will trigger the
    scene for Eres's Medallion. After that, you are automatically teleported to the
    forest entrance, keeping Sylvan and Brau with you. If later you decide to see
    the scene, you can always go back to the area where Eule's hut is and leave.
    This will trigger the scene and cause Sylvan and Brau to leave permanently.
    Thanks lordbetshumeletz for the tip.

        Trigger Condition:
            - After you complete Free the Gecklings (Quest 13), talk to the
              Geckling standing near the second house in Geckling Village.
        Complete Condition:
            - Obtain Amut's and Eres's Medallions.
        Failing Condition:
            - Favor with Amut or Cyril is at 0.
        Rewards:
            - Ancient Text
            - Jewels
            - Amut's Medallion and Jewels
            - Eres's Medallion and Jewels

        Proficiencies: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    After you have completed Free the Gecklings (Quest 13), the Geckling standing
    near the second house in the Geckling Village will tell about the Ancient
    Scroll. If your main character is not Hawke, he will tell you that the scroll
    was sold to a pirate named Hawke. If you go to Uso and talk to Hawke, he will
    offer the scroll for 15,000 gold. However, if you have an empty spot and
    recruit him into your party, you can get the scroll for free.
    
    The scroll is in ancient language. How do we decipher it? Go to Melvir Library
    in Melvir 2F and look for the Ancient Languages section. After you have read
    all the books in that section, you will understand that it requires Amut's and
    Eres's Medallions to enter Twinmoon Temple on Walon Isle. You will also receive
    some jewels as a reward.
    
    Head to Temple of Amut in North Estamir and obtain Amut's Medallion from the
    priestess. Then head to the big tree in Mazewood. When you arrive at the foot
    of the big tree past the area where Eule's hut is located, your character will
    automatically call out on Cyril. If your ER is 9 or higher and your favor with
    Cyril is at least 1, he will ask you to wait for nightfall. When night comes,
    go up towards the tree. Eres will appear and give you Eres's Medallion.
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Claudia...
    Given the special relationship between Eres and Claudia, you will see a unique
    dialogue between them when you are getting Eres's Medallion.
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Hawke...
    When you talk to the Geckling about the Ancient Scroll, he will offer to sell
    you for 10,000G. Make sure you plan ahead so that you have enough gold to buy
    the scroll.

    27. Ailing Emperor                      ER: 9 - 13                    [QT027]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Talk to Sofia (the priestess) in Temple of Elore about the Emperor
              being ill.
        Complete Condition:
            - Obtain the Moonstone and cure the Emperor.
        Failing Condition:
            - Reach ER 14 before completing the quest.
            - Lose the battle to the Minion outside Twinmoon Temple.
        Rewards:
            - Choice of Espada Ropera, A'la Melvirana, or 10,000G
            - Moonstone and Jewels

                            1000G + (Weapon or Armor), 500G + Jewels,
                            Gold + Jewels, Weapon, Weapon, Armor
            - Twinmoon Temple: Beast's Bangle, Beast's Greaves, Beast's Helm,
                               Beast's Mail, Ring of Protection, Guardian's Ring,
                               Stamina Drink, Alacrity Pill
        Proficiencies:
            - Inner Jungle: Find Chests, Find Herbs, Harvest
            - Twinmoon Temple: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    When you talk to the police in Melvir Police Station or check the notice in
    Melvir pub at ER 9-13, you will hear that the Emperor is ill. Go to Temple of
    Elore on Melvir 2F and talk to Sofia (the priestess) to trigger the quest.
    She suspects that someone may have placed a curse on the Emperor.
    
    If you check the book "Powers of the Fatestones" under the Fatestones section
    in Melvir Library, it is said that the Moonstone can dispel any curse. The book
    "Where they are found" under the same section tells you that Moonstone is
    located in Twinmoon Temple. To enter Twinmoon Temple on Walon Isle, Amut's and
    Eres's Medallions are required. Follow Ancient Texts (Quest 26) to obtain them.
    
    There are powerful bosses in Twinmoon Temple, make sure you are well-prepared
    and have enough healing spells or items. Go to the Jungle on Walon Isle and
    talk to the Geckling to take the small boat to the Inner Jungle. There are
    three caves in the next area. Take the rightmost one (Cave A). After going
    through the cave, you will arrive at the entrance of Twinmoon Temple. Before
    you go near the stairs, quicksave and prepare for a tough boss battle.
    
    As you are about to ascend the stairs, Saruin's Minion, Scorn, appears. Scorn
    can act up to two times a turn and he has 7000HP. He is tough at ER 9 and most
    likely he can one hit kill your characters. If you have the Topaz from Missing
    Taralians (Quest 24), it can make one of your characters immune to Blades of
    Wind. Also if you have the Aquamarine (Quest 34) and Diamond (Quest 53), they
    can protect one of your characters from Hellfire and Shadow Bolt, respectively.
    In this battle, items seem to be a better choice than healing spells for
    reviving characters. From my experience, items seem to have a faster activation
    rate than spells, so that you can revive your allies before Scorn kill you off.
    (I could be wrong about the activation speed though.) Some other things to
    consider include buying better armors and putting your weapons in Defense Mode
    so that you may have a chance to survive one hit. Some other players also
    suggested the use of techs such as ID Break or Split Cranium to lower Scorn's
    INT. If you are having serious trouble against him, you may consider coming
    back a couple ERs later. Just keep in mind that this quest has a tight ER
    bound and don't wait too long.
    
    On each level in Twinmoon Temple, you have to fight the correct type of
    monsters to unlock the movable platforms to the rooms above. After you fight
    a correct monster, the ground will shake and you will find one tile now having
    an action prompt. On B1, you need to fight Unknowns. One room leads to the
    Beast's Bangle and the other leads to B2. In Twinmoon Temple, you will have to
    fight all the monsters in the room in order to get the treasure.
    
    The monster type for B2 is Insect. Going clockwise from the entrance room, the
    other three rooms are path to B3, Stamina Drink, and Ring of Protection. The
    monster type for B3 is Lizard. Going clockwise from the entrance room, the
    three rooms are Beast's Greaves, path to B4, and Guardian's Ring. The monster
    type for B4 is Undead. Going clockwise from the entrance room, the three rooms
    are Alacrity Pill, Beast's Helm, and path to B5. On B5, the platform on the
    left of the screen leads to Beast's Mail, but you will have to fight a pretty
    tough boss to get it. The platform on the right leads to Zodiac, the guardian
    of the fatestone. This beast has 8325HP. However, if you could defeat Scorn
    earlier, you should not have too much trouble with this. Defeat it to obtain
    the Moonstone.
    
    Return to Melvir with the Moonstone and visit Sofia or Neville. The Moonstone
    clears the curse and cures the Emperor. You can choose Espada Ropera, A'la
    Melvirana, or 10,000G for your reward.
    
    After the quest, if you visit Sofia in Temple of Elore, she will tell you about
    a sinister mage having a fatestone. This will trigger Isle of Evil (Quest 36).

        Trigger Condition:
            - You cannot activate this quest if you declined to help when presented
              the options during Pride of the Knights (Quest 14).
            - If you completed Pride of the Knights (Quest 14) with good
              completion, a Dominion soldier will look for and talk to you in
              Yeoville or Bruelle.
            - Or visit Lord Heinrich in Eugenstadt directly.
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat the captors in Kidnappers' Cave and rescue Constance.
        Failing Condition:
            - Reach ER 17 before talking to Heinrich.
            - Reach ER 18 before completing the quest.
        Rewards:
            - 5000G and Jewels (7000G and Jewels)
        Chests:
            - Tower of Flammar: Mage's Staff, Blazing Sword, Scarlet Robe
            - Kidnappers' Cave: Kidnappers' Cave Map, Evil Eye Talisman, 1000G,
                                Gold, Armor
        Proficiencies:
            - Tower of Flammar: None

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    If you completed Pride of the Knights (Quest 14) with good completion (Theodore
    and Raphael had joined your party), you can meet a Dominion soldier walking
    towards you in Yeoville or Bruelle. He will tell you that Raphael has been sent
    to the Dungeon under Mirsaburg awaiting execution. If you did not do the quest
    or if you offered to help but did it without Theodore and Raphael ever joining,
    you will have to visit Lord Heinrich directly to trigger this quest. If you
    declined to help when presented the option during that quest, you cannot
    trigger this quest.
    
    You may go to the Dungeon in Mirsaburg Castle to see Raphael. Then you should
    talk to Heinrich in Eugenstadt, if you have not done so. He will point you to
    Lady Flammar and unlock Weiserheim on the map.
    
    In Tower of Flammar of Weiserheim, you will see two two types of teleport pads.
    Keep using the same type a few times until you see Flammar. Until you open up
    Ettinham by unlocking Auldburg (Quest 54) at ER 20 or above, this is the only
    place you may buy the two high level Pyrology spells--Bird of Fire and Revive.
    Talk to her about Constance and eventually you will come to selecting between
    two options. Pick "That must be my destiny." If you pick the other, you will
    not be able to get the chests in the tower or buy spells from her anymore.
    Also note that after you complete this quest, Flammar will not be in her tower
    to sell you spells until you complete Theodore's Madness (Quest 48) at ER 18 or
    above. If you want the two high level Pyrology spells, buy them now or delay
    this quest to later ER.
    
    Knowing the whereabouts of Constance, head over to the Kidnappers' Cave. In the
    cave, you will see a statue and nine square floor tiles. Pushing the statue to
    the top left or bottom right tile will open the doors to the two rooms with
    possible chests at the left of the cave. Pushing it to the top right tile will
    generate a high level demon fight. Near the end of the game, this trap is
    useful for generating the battle rank 10 demon--Ifrit. It is good for sparking
    high level techs with. Pushing the statue to the bottom left lets you progress
    the cave.
    
    Put the statue to the bottom left tile and go to the middle room at the left
    of the cave. Clicking the statue there will transport it to the other side of
    the cave. Go to the other side and you will see the statue and another nine
    floor tiles. The top and bottom tiles are traps. The right tile opens the door
    to the room with chest. The left tile opens the door to the boss and Constance.
    
    In this boss battle, you will be fighting two Ogres and two Goblin Mages. This
    battle is not too hard, but if you are doing this at ER 9, the Ogre may easily
    kill your characters in one hit. If you are having trouble, come back a couple
    ERs later and it should be more manageable.
    
    When you are back to Mirsaburg Castle, Theodore will offer you an honorary
    knighthood. Accept it and you will receive 5000G and jewels. If you keep
    turning it down for about 10 times, you will receive 7000G and jewels.

    29. The Soulgutter                      ER: 10 - 22                   [QT029]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Watch the festival in Uso and talk to the Minstrel.
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat Soulgutter.
        Failing Condition:
            - Start this quest at ER 20 of higher.
        Rewards:
            - Jewels
        Chests: None
        Proficiencies: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    In my opinion, this is the most elusive quest to complete. To trigger this
    quest, visit Uso and Steppes of Galessa at ER 10. Then come back to Uso one ER
    later. At the shrine on the other side of the lake, you should see a festival
    where people are circling the bon fire. Talk to the Minstrel to trigger the
    quest.
    
    If you leave Uso and come back, the town will go back to normal. The left of
    the two men by the lake will tell you that he saw monsters circling the ruins
    in the Steppes of Galessa. Other than that, there is nothing special going on.
    
    Now comes the most elusive part. After you have witnessed the festival, come
    back to Uso one ER later and talk to the lady by the lake near the magic shop.
    If she tells you that they found a dead man with no scratch by the ruins,
    congratulations and you have successfully triggered this part. Otherwise, you
    will have to check back with the lady every ER and hopefully she will tell you
    about the dead man some time.
    
    Once the previous part is triggered, visit another town and return to Uso to
    trigger a cutscene. After that, go to the shrine to talk to the cloaked man.
    He will tell you about Soulgutter and how to banish him. When you are ready,
    head to the Steppes of Galessa to battle Soulgutter.
    
    In this battle, you need to use stunning or stats down techs to "stall"
    Soulgutter. At the end of each turn that you have stalled him, you will circle
    around him. If you succeed in circling around him 5 times in a row, you will
    win the battle. Try forming combos to increase the chance of stun or stats
    down. Furthermore, the more damage you inflict on Soulgutter, the better chance
    you will be able to circle him 5 times. Some players suggest that moving the
    right analog stick counterclockwise while circling Soulgutter could help. You
    may try it if you want.
    
    Soulgutter has finite amount of HP, so it is also possible to defeat him the
    regular way by depleting his HP. Thanks yipviva for the tip.
    
    After defeating Soulgutter, return to Uso and receive your jewels reward from
    the Minstrel.

        Trigger Condition:
            - Talk to the two men in Weston pub about the vampires.
            - You may not activate this quest if Jewel Beast has destroyed Weston.
        Complete Condition:

        Proficiencies:
            - Vampire's Den: Find Chests, Disarm Traps
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    To trigger this quest, talk to the two men in Weston pub and unlock Vampire's
    Den. They mention vampires appeared in Estamir long ago.
    
    Before going to Estamir to collect more information, you may visit Yassi to
    see something interesting. If you talk to the people, you will notice their
    responses are a bit strange. Run around in the town for awhile and the night
    will fall... and you will be in for a surprise.
    
    In North Estamir pub, talk to the two men next to the bar. They will inform you
    that St. Agnes of Amut defeated the vampires with the Chalice, which was buried
    in the catacombs.
    
    Go down to the catacombs in Estamir Tunnels and search the graves for the
    Chalice. You may quicksave before searching a grave and reload if it is not the
    correct one. If you cannot find the Chalice, make sure you have talked to both
    men in the pub. Also note that you can only find the Chalice after this quest
    is triggered but before it is completed. Make sure you do not miss the Chalice
    because it is a powerful item that allows you to recover the BP of your whole
    party with its Miracle Water.
    
    Now it is time to head for Vampire's Den to put the vampires back into their
    graves. There is one fixed monster group on each of the four levels. It is
    possible to bypass the ones on B2 and B3, but you should make sure you kill
    them all if you are interested in locking Jewel Beast's Lair and delaying the
    wakeup of Jewel Beast (Quest 33).
    
    When you come to the Innermost Area, you will fight the boss Vampire. You may
    use the Holy Sparkle of Chalice to deal decent damage to him, or you can just
    rely on your techs/spells to take him out. You will obtain the Lovely Headdress
    after you defeat him.
    
    
    -- About Recharging the Chalice...
    Every time you use Holy Sparkle or Miracle Water, it depletes the Chalice DP.
    When the DP reaches 0, you cannot use it anymore. However, you can recharge it
    at the altar in Temple of Nisa in Nisa Cavern under Kaklim Desert. It is the
    same place where you get the Topaz during Missing Taralians (Quest 24).

            - If you completed Wuhan's Secret (Quest 12) and forgave Wuhan, talk
              to the bartender and the agent in South Estamir pub.
            - Or check the note in North Estamir pub and rescue the girl from the
              Kidnappers in the alley.
        Complete Condition:
            - Rescue the kidnapped maiden from Strom by bringing him The Raincloud
              Armlet (Quest 39) or defeating him.
        Failing Condition:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Check the note in North Estamir pub about a missing daughter who never returned
    from Tarmitta to trigger the quest. Then go to the alley behind the apothecary
    to rescue a girl from a bunch of Kidnappers. She will unlock Tarmitta if it is
    not unlocked yet.
    
    Alternatively, you can trigger the quest by talking to the bartender in South
    Estamir pub and the agent will bring you to see Wuhan. Wuhan tells you that his
    daughter is kidnapped and asks you to help to find her. If you killed Wuhan
    during Wuhan's Secret (Quest 12), you will not be able to trigger this part.
    
    Now head to Tarmitta and talk to the man near the apothecary. He mentions about
    the Water Dragon Rite and unlocks Lake Malar. Pay to sleep at Tarmitta Inn. At
    night, go down the secret passage next to the bridge of the castle.
    
    Go through Sekhet Palace to meet Tuman's Double. Defeat him and then talk to
    the guards to reveal that the Water Dragon Temple is in the middle of Lake
    Malar.
    
    Head to Lake Malar, hijack the boat, and sail straight to the temple. At this
    point, the door to the right is locked and you cannot go in. Go to the left
    and down the corridor. When you arrive in Strom's Den, the real Tuman is
    offering the maiden to Strom. After defeating the guards, you will fight with
    Tuman. Tuman is capable of using the fusion spell Overdrive. It will end the
    current turn and let him act five times in a row.
    
    After the battle, you get the Strom's Ring from Tuman, but Strom refuses your
    resolution of returning the ring for the girl. Choose the option "How Selfish!"
    and Strom will ask you to get The Raincloud Armlet (Quest 39) back from Adyllis
    in exchange for the girl. If you challenge Strom and lose, you will never be
    able to complete the quest even though it does not marked as failed. If you
    defeat Strom, you can complete the quest, but you will not be able to take on
    Aquatic Ecology (Quest 43) in the future. You will get a Mirror Shield for
    defeating Strom.
    
    After you obtain the Raincloud Armlet, return to Strom and he will release the
    girl. If you talked to Wuhan at the beginning of the quest, you will get your
    rewards from Wuhan--choice of Wisteria, Battle Mage Armor, or 5000G. In
    addition, you get another 5000G and a bunch of jewels. If you did not talk to
    Wuhan, you will get 1000G and jewels from the girl (Thanks RayWing (Maipawa)
    for the tip). 
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Jamil...
    If you trigger this quest with Wuhan, Jamil will ask Wuhan to pay upfront and
    you will get some extra gold. (I do not remember the exact amount. It was
    probably about 2,000G.) And you will still get the same rewards after you
    complete the quest.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    At ER 12 or above, talk to the bartender and the man in South Estamir pub to
    trigger this quest. The Thieves' Guild asks for your help in destroying the
    Assassins' Guild. If you agree to help, they will allow you to take all the
    chests in the Guild.
    
    Then if you sleep in South Estamir Inn, you will be attacked by an assassin.
    If you visit Farah, you will see a scene of her mom attacking you. Either
    event will unlock the location of the Assassins' Guild. Furthermore, after the
    event in Farah's house, you will be able to recruit Farah. (You cannot recruit
    Farah if your main character is Jamil.)
    
    Head to the Assassins' Guild in Kjaraht. To get to the guild headquarters, you
    need to follow the lights on the floor. The following are the sequences for
    getting to different rooms.
    
    Room with chests: Up Up Up Left
    Ceremonial Chamber: Up Up Up Right Up Right Up Up
    Headquarters Room: Up Up Up Right Up Right Up Down Left Up Up
    
    At the headquarters, You will need to fight the Assassin Leader, two Assassins,
    and two Mage Assassins. Use multi-target attacks or concentrate on taking out
    the Assassins or Mage Assassins first.
    
    You will receive jewels reward after the battle. A Minion appears, but you do
    not need to fight him at this time. If Jewel Beast has not woken up, the Minion
    will mention about it and Jewel Beast's Lair will be unlocked. Refer to The
    Jewel Beast (Quest 33) for more information.
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Jamil...
    If you let Dowd leave your party earlier in the game, Jamil will have a unique
    scene when he sleeps in South Estamir Inn.

        Proficiencies:
            - Jewel Beast's Lair: Climb Lv.1, Jump Lv.1
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This is one of the hardest quest to trigger in this game. Going through Jewel
    Beast's Lair is no trivial matter either. It requires a lot of planning,
    preparations, and patience.
    
    Normally, the Jewel Beast wakes up at ER 14, leaves its lair at ER 15, and
    starts ravaging the Frontier at ER 16. It will destroy one settlement per ER
    until it reaches Weston and parks there. The awaked Jewel Beast can easily wipe
    out your party if you are not prepared. It always uses an attack called Jewel
    Blaster on the second turn and most of the time it can kill off your whole
    party. After that, every now and then it will use Jewel Blaster again. When it
    is near dead, it may even use it every other turn. One way to tackle Jewel
    Blaster is the use of Revive or Phantom Warrior. Another way is to build up
    your characters' defense to a high level and have them defend during the second
    turn, in hope that they can survive. The Jewel Beast has 30,000HP.
    
    To save the Frontier, it is possible to delay the ER at which the Jewel Beast
    wakes up, but it is no easy task. First, you need to defeat all fixed/scripted
    battles in Frontier during Unsettling Settlement (Quest 8), the Fiends of Saoki
    (Quest 17), and Return of the Vampires (Quest 30). Here is a list of fixed
    monsters you should fight during those quests:
    
    Yassi Cavern: Two Slimes and Sea Serpent
    Saoki Cavern: Two War Beasts, Five Greater Zombies, and Three Butterflies.
    Vampire's Den: Three Vampire's Minions, Two Vampire's Minions,
                   Three Vampire's Minions, Werewolf, and Vampire
    
    Then you will need to unlock the Jewel Beast's Lair. There are two ways:
    1. Complete Assassins' Guild (Quest 32) by ER 13.
    2. Complete Aquatic Ecology (Quest 43) by ER 13*.
    
    * It is possible to unlock Jewel Beast's Lair at a ER later than 13 if you
      start the ecology quest before 13 but complete it after 13. However, there is
      little point in unlocking it after ER 13 since Jewel Beast would have left
      the lair already.
    
    Given the short ER range and the large number of monsters to kill in ecology
    quest, the second way is hard. It is a lot easier to unlock the lair with the
    first method. However, the first method will not unlock this quest into the
    quest notes. Only the second method will put this into the quest notes. Check
    the last paragraph of this quest for a way to unlock the lair easily while
    getting the quest notes.
    
    To actually delay the wake up of Jewel Beast, you need to defeat the fixed
    monsters inside Jewel Beast's Lair. There are four pillars and a fifth group of
    Cockatrices and Petrified Beasts. Each pillar consists of a Lamia and four
    Zombie Dragons. For each group you defeat, you will delay Jewel Beast's
    awakening by 1 ER, up to a maximum of 5 ERs. In other words, you may delay it
    from ER 14 to ER 19 if you defeat all four pillars as well as the fifth group.
    Note that you have to defeat the first pillar by ER 13. Then you need to kill
    one more each successive ER thereafter. Of course, you can kill all of them by
    ER 13 if you so choose. Also if you want to fight the sleeping Jewel Beast,
    make sure you do so by ER 18 as it will wake up at ER 19.
    
    Now the problem is how to kill the pillars (Lamia + 4 Zombie Dragons). Without
    proper preparations, they are almost impossible to defeat at ER 13. If Lamia
    uses Shock Wave, most likely you will not even survive the first turn. In the
    following, I will give some possible ways to defeat them:
    
    1. Make one character a Rosalian Mage. Synthesize Overdrive with the character
       and put the Chalice on him/her. Buy some Talent Blasters in Crystal City and
       put them on a different character. On the first turn, use a Talent Blaster
       on the Rosalian Mage (alternative, you can use the Miracle Water from the
       Chalice) to fill up the BP. Then cast Overdrive in the second turn, use
       the Holy Sparkle on Chalice 3-4 times during Overdrive will kill off all
       the Zombie Dragons.
    
    2. Have one or more Imperial Scholars synthesizing Bird of Fire + Mindblast or
       Rosalian Mages synthesizing Bird of Fire + Mindblast + Energy Bolt. This
       will give a more powerful Bird of Fire with less BP cost. Make sure they
       have some levels in Pyrology and Demonology to reduce the BP cost. Then have
       another character using the Holy Sparkle of Chalice normally. The Zombie
       Dragons should die after 3-4 shots of Bird of Fire or Holy Sparkle.
    
    3. Have one or more archers keep using Maiming Volley in hope that they will
       go before the Zombie Dragons and snare them from their Trample attacks. Or
       if you have polearm/lance users, you can try Reaper to stun them. Then buy
       the best armors for one or two characters and use them as tanks. Put them
       in the front to defend. The rest of the characters can use Holy Sparkle or
       some other damaging multi-target attacks.
    
    The above are just some suggestions. There could be more and better ways to
    defeat the pillars. Nevertheless, you may have to soft reset quite a number of
    times before you can take them out.
    
    If you succeed in getting down the lair before the Jewel Beast wakes up, you
    can fight it while it is sleeping. You can take off about 8000-10,000 out of
    30,000HP for free before it wakes up. Moreover, it will rarely use Jewel
    Blaster, if it uses it at all. In fact, I have fought the sleeping Jewel Beast
    a number of times, but I have yet to see it use Jewel Blaster once.
    
    As I mentioned, unlocking the Jewel Beast's Lair through Assassins' Guild does
    not create the quest notes while unlocking it through Aquatic Ecology is not
    easy. However, you may try the following. First, you should unlock the lair
    through Assassins' Guild by ER 13. Then defeat all the pillars as well as the
    Cockatrice group in the lair. This should delay the wake up of Jewel Beast to
    ER 19. If you complete the Aquatic Ecology and talk to Strom before ER 19, you
    should be able to get the quest notes. Thanks killerb255 for this information.

                               Jump Lv.1-2
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    To trigger this quest, you need to recruit Albert in order to enter Crystal
    Palace. Talk to Prince Neidhart and he will ask you to look for the Aquamarine
    for him. Note that you can get the Aquamarine without triggering this quest.
    
    If you intend to keep the Aquamarine and have not ever seen Neidhart earlier in
    the current playthrough, you should avoid talking to Neidhart, because it will
    adversely affect a later quest. See The Dragon Knight (Quest 49) for more
    information.
    
    If you do not have Crystal Lake unlocked, talk to the people in the pub or the
    lady near the second bridge at the Main Street. On the lake, there are two
    guard boats. You will be sent back to town if they catch you. There are four
    Aquamarine Caves and the Aquamarine is located in Cave D. Look for ripples on
    the Lake. Hit the action button when the boat is over the ripples to enter the
    caves. Cave D is located somewhere between the starting location of the two
    guard boats.
    
    When you are in Cave D, go straight forward until you come to Cave E. Avoid the
    smoke coming out of the statues. You will get a game over if you hit the smoke.
    Take a right after passing the three statues. Then turn left when you are at
    the middle of the next six statues. Go to the end and touch the blue light.
    
    This takes you back to Cave D. The doors open and the Aquamarine is in a room
    not far from you. Prepare yourself as you will soon fight the guardian of
    the fatestone, Ghost Ship. This boss has 6,800HP but it is susceptible to
    status ailments such as paralysis, unconsciousness, and even instant death.
    Take advantage of that and you can beat it as early as ER 7 or 8.
    
    If you return the Aquamarine to Neidhart, you can choose Halberd, Field Plate,
    or 8000G for your reward, but you will lose the Aquamarine permanently in this
    playthrough. After returning the Aquamarine, visit Neidhart again with an empty
    spot in your party and he will offer to join you.
    
    Having triggered the quest or not, you need to get the Aquamarine before ER 15
    or someone else will beat you to it.

    35. Pirate Invasion                     ER: 14 - 22                   [QT035]
        Note:
            - You may start this quest at ER 9-13 after you complete Ailing
              Emperor (Quest 27).
        Trigger Condition:
            - Enter Melvir at ER 16 or above.
            - Or break into the Pirates' Hideout in Melvir Sewers and then sleep
              at the inn before ER 16.
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat Great Sky Dragon.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards:
            - 10,000G and Jewels
        Chests:
            - Pirates' Hideout: 5000G + Jewels, Rigid Leather, Gothic Axe,
                                Sailor's Bandana, Gold + Golden Blade
            - Elizabeth Palace: Rapier, Antique Dagger, Throwing Axe, Ogre's Eye,
                                Quarterstaff, Pike
        Proficiencies:
            - Elizabeth Palace: Disarm Traps
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Normally, the Pirate Invasion starts when you enter Melvir at ER 16 or above.
    However, you will get the most out of this quest if you break into the Pirates'
    Hideout in Melvir Sewers at ER 14-15. In fact, you may do it as early as
    ER 9-13 after you have completed Ailing Emperor (Quest 27).
    
    At the appropriate ER before ER 16, head down to Melvir Sewers through the door
    next to the Police Station. Go straight after the first turn. At the end, you
    will hear faint pirate's chanting from behind the door. Choose to break the
    door and defeat the pirates in the hideout. Get the treasures and go back to
    the Melvir Police Station to report the pirates' plan of attack. Note that
    breaking into the hideout and reporting to the police are required to unlock
    Pirate Coast after the quest.
    
    Now before ER 16, sleeping at the Melvir Inn will trigger the pirate invasion.
    After you come out of the inn, head to the dock and fight Butcher. Butcher has
    9999HP. Defeat him and head back to Melvir.
    
    The next objective is to save the Emperor. However, if your party is in good
    shape, you may go down to Melvir Sewers and visit the Mysterious Temple beneath
    the Temple of Elore. It is at the top left arrow of the sewers map. You will
    find the priest of Saruin there. When you confront him, you will get into a
    chain battle with a Greater Devil, a Cyclops, and the Priest of Saruin.
    
    Now go to the Palace. Find your way to the throne room on 2F. Your next boss
    is Great Sky Dragon, which has 8984HP. Defeat it to save the Emperor. You will
    be rewarded 10,000G and a bunch of jewels.
    
    After you defeat Great Sky Dragon and receive you rewards, if you go back to
    the Mysterious Temple in Melvir Sewers, you will find the Minion Scorn there.
    At this point he should be pretty easy.
    
    If you had broken into the Pirates' Hideout and reported the attack to the
    police before the invasion, you can now find a pirate hiding in the hideout.
    Talk to him and he can bring you to Pirate Coast. This is a requirement for
    recruiting Captain Silver.
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Hawke...
    After beating Butcher at the dock, you can find a ship nearby at the dock. You
    may hop on it and chase after Butcher. After some scenes, you will eventually
    get to fight Butcher and his buddy monster. Settle it once and for all. You
    will receive a Salty Bandana for defeating Butcher. However, you will miss
    the rest of the quest and rewards.

    36. Isle of Evil                        ER: 9 - 18                    [QT036]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Talk to Sofia (the priestess) in Temple of Elore after you complete
              Ailing Emperor (Quest 27).
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat Ewei to obtain the fatestone Emerald.
        Failing Condition:
            - Return to Yeoville from Isle of Evil before completing the quest.
            - Reach ER 19 before completing this quest.
        Rewards:
            - Emerald and Jewels.
        Chests:
            - Isle of Evil: 2000G + Jewels, 2000G + Jewels, 2000G + Jewels,
                            Elemental Staff
        Proficiencies:
            - Isle of Evil: Pick Locks, Disarm Traps, Jump
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Visit Sofia (the priestess) in Temple of Elore after you have completed Ailing
    Emperor (Quest 27), she will tell you that a sinister mage in Isle of Evil has
    a fatestone. If you head to the dock that is near the pub in Yeoville and talk
    to the lady there. She will talk about the old man at the end of the dock
    having been to the Isle of Evil.
    
    Speaking with the old man gives you the option to sail to Isle of Evil. Note
    that talking to Sofia is required to trigger this part. Therefore, you can
    complete this quest only after you have completed Ailing Emperor. Also note
    that once you go to the Isle of Evil, you will fail the quest if you return to
    Yeoville before completing it.
    
    The Isle of Evil is pretty straight forward. Just watch your steps on those
    moving stairs. If you fall out of the stairs, you will be sent back to the
    previous platform. At 3F, you have to touch all 6 pedestals to open up the way
    at the north. However, the "fire ball" will shoot at you when you get close.
    You will have to start over if it touches you. After you open up the way, use
    the teleport pad and it will sends you back to the beginning of 2F. Repeat the
    same path two more times to get to 4F.
    
    You will meet the sinister mage Ewei inside the room. After some talking, you
    will get to fight him and his "meat shields." Note that if you have reached
    ER 19, Ewei will run away and you will not be able to get the Emerald, thus
    failing the quest.
    
    In the battle with Ewei, he has two "meat shields" in front of you. You have to
    kill the meat shields before you can damage Ewei, unless you use multi-target
    attacks. Moreover, the meat shields will regenerate in a couple turns after you
    kill them. Therefore, it is a good idea for multiple characters to have multi-
    target attacks. You may weaken the meat shields in the first turn. Then use
    fixed battle order in the second turn and have the first char use a multi-
    target attack to take them out. The rest of the characters can then concentrate
    their attacks on Ewei. Let them form a combo if possible to reduce the chance
    of being blocked by his Aegis. After you defeat Ewei, you will get the Emerald
    and a bunch of jewels.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    You can trigger this quest by talking to the Geckling near the Geckling Village
    entrance after you have completed Free the Gecklings (Quest 13) or by talking
    to the pirate at the far left in Pirate Coast. If you trigger by the first
    way, talk to the Geckling chief to receive a Geckling's Map. This map
    supposedly shows the path leading to Silver's Treasure, but I never understand
    it to find it useful.
    
    Head to the Jungle and take the boat to the Inner Jungle. Both Cave B and Cave
    C can lead to Silver's Cave. If you take Cave C, follow the first right path
    and you will come out to the East Area. Then keep moving towards the left until
    the entrance to Silver's Cave appears.
    
    In Silver's Cave, go right at the first intersection and remove the trap wall
    with Find Traps proficiency. Follow the path to B2. If you want the map, it is
    at the opposite side of B1 behind a trap wall. B2 is filled with traps at the
    intersection and around the chests. You will lose LP if you step on one, so be
    careful. At B3, go to the right and defeat the fixed monsters. Then you will
    come to an area with a number of chests. Open, and disarm if needed, all the
    chests before you proceed. Do the same for the next room.
    
    In this last room, you will fight the Silver Dragon. It can be hard at early
    ER. If you have trouble, you may consider coming back a few ERs later. The
    Silver Dragon has 8000HP. It usually starts off the battle with Breath of
    Lightning which hits an area. If your party is weak, you may try defending the
    first round so that you can survive. The Silver Dragon can drop the polearm
    Khellendros, but it is very rare and may require a lot of resets to get it.
    
    After you defeat the Silver Dragon, you can get the fatestone Opal from the
    altar. Moreover, you will now be able to recruit Captain Silver if you have
    Pirate Coast unlocked during Pirate Invasion (Quest 35). She may not be there
    yet if you go right away. Give it some game time for her to spawn.

    38. The Mine Assaulted                  ER: 14 - 22                   [QT038]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Talk to the man in the open area outside the Depository in Aurefont.
            - Or talk to the police at Melvir Police Station.
            - Or enter the assaulted Aurefont Mine.
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat all 10 monsters in Aurefont Mine.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards:
            - 15,000G to 30,000G and Jewels
        Chests:
            - Aurefont Mine: Aurefont Mine Map
        Proficiencies:
            - Aurefont Mine: Find Ore, Mine
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    If you go to Aurefont at ER 14 or above, the mine will be attacked by monsters.
    You can trigger this quest by talking to the man at the open area outside the
    Depository in Aurefont, by talking to the police in Melvir Police Station, or
    by simply entering the mine. Your objective is to defeat all 10 monsters in
    the mine and rescue the miners.
    
    After fighting the Beastman in B1, you can go either left or right. To the
    right you will see the Gold Dragon. However, if you go to the left, you can
    eventually come back out from behind the Dragon to ambush it. Ambushing it will
    cause it not to use its Breath attacks at the first turn.
    
    The path should be straight forward until you have come to B2-B. Go through
    the level and take the last elevator down to B3-B. Follow the path and you
    will eventually come back to B1 behind the Gold Dragon. At this point, you
    should have killed 8 monsters.
    
    Ambush the Dragon and defeat it. If you have already defeated the Silver
    Dragon, this one should be easy. The Gold Dragon always drops Pure Gold, which
    can sell for over 1000G. You can take advantage of this to make some money.
    Check the "Gold Dragon Trick" in section VIII. Tricks and Exploitations for
    more information. After you defeat the Dragon, go left to take out the last
    monster.
    
    There are 15 miners in the mine. Rescue all of them before you leave the mine
    to get the full 30,000G reward. The following table lists the number of
    miners at each area:
    
     Area     Number of Miners

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    After you defeat Tuman during Water Dragon Rite (Quest 31), Strom refuses to
    exchange the girl back for his ring. If you pick the option "How Selfish!",
    Strom will ask you to retrive the Raincloud Armlet from Adyllis, who dwells in
    the depths of Great Pit under Bayre Plateau.
    
    If you do not have Bayre Plateau, talk to the lady to the right of the dock
    entrance in Bruelle to unlock it. Go to Bayre Plateau and find the cave leading
    to Great Pit. A lot of people have had trouble locating Adyllis in Great Pit.
    I will try my best to explain the directions.
    
    To get to Adyllis, follow the path down and do not enter any caves. After you
    have passed 5 cave entrances, you should come to a point where the path splits
    up. Take the left and keep going down. Hug the wall and eventually you will
    see a cave to the right. That cave is the Innermost Area where Adyllis resides.
    
    In exchange for the Raincloud Armlet, Adyllis asks you to get her the Cyclone
    Shoes (Quest 40) from Avi. If you so choose, you can get the Raincloud Armlet
    forcefully by defeating Adyllis, but you will not be able to take on the Insect
    Ecology (Quest 44) in the future.
    
    If you are at ER 20 or above and have the neutral ending quest Auldburg
    (Quest 54) unlocked, you can buy the Raincloud Armlet in Ettinham for 30,000G.
    
    Return the Raincloud Armlet to Strom to complete this quest as well as the
    Water Dragon Rite. Or you can defeat Strom to complete this quest. You will
    get a Mirror Shield for defeating him, but you will not be able to take on
    Aquatic Ecology (Quest 43) in the future.

    To open up Mt. Tomae on Ligau Isle, you will have to complete Monster of Mt.
    Tomae (Quest 23) first. Once it is open, venture down Mt. Tomae to meet Pyrix.
    In exchange for his Ignigarde, he asks you to get him the Ice Sword (Quest 42).

    After you complete Monster of Mt. Tomae (Quest 23) and meet with Pyrix in the
    Core of Mt. Tomae, he will ask you to bring him the Ice Sword.
    
    If you have ever checked the weapon shop (New Road Weapons) in Altours, you
    would notice that they have an Ice Sword for 20,000G. Once you have collected
    20,000G, go back to the shop. If Galahad is not in your party, the shopkeeper
    will inform you that someone else has bought the Sword already. Leave the shop
    and talk to the lady right outside. She will tell you Galahad has bought the
    Sword. Go into the shop or pub and come back out, you should now see Galahad
    showing off his new weapon at the town entrance near the pub. Galahad stands
    behind the building on the left side of the entrance, so you will have to be
    close to see him.
    
    Let's talk to Galahad. If you have an empty spot in your party, he will join
    you and you can get the Ice Sword for free. Otherwise, you can choose to kill
    him to get the Ice Sword. Killing him greatly increases your favor with Saruin.
    It increases the favor by 100 if Galahad has never been in your party or by
    200 otherwise. If you are planning to get the Evil ending quest The Netherworld
    (Quest 56), you should get Galahad into your party and then kill him off during
    this event. However, you should leave the killing part to as late in the game
    as possible. It is because the favor may decrease between the time you kill him
    and the time you trigger the ending quest.
    
    If you are at ER 20 or above and have the Neutral ending quest Auldburg
    (Quest 54) unlocked, you can buy the Ice Sword+1 in Ettinham for 30,000G.
    
    Once you have obtained the Ice Sword, return to Mt. Tomae. Give it to Pyrix and
    he will give you the Ignigarde (Quest 41) in return. Or you can defeat Pyrix to
    complete this quest. You will get the Ignigarde for defeating him, but you will
    not be able to take on Plant Ecology (Quest 46) in the future.
    
    
    -- Galahad Does Not Join Me...
    If Galahad is holding the Ice Sword but refuses to join you, there are a few
    possibilities. Thanks RayWing (Maipawa), killerb255, and Cory Wray for the
    information.
    1. You do not have an empty spot in your party.
    2. You have 99 items in your inventory.
    3. Your favor with the Evil Gods is above 200.
    4. The quest "The Ice Sword" has not been triggered yet.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    After you have completed Water Dragon Rite (Quest 31) and the Raincloud Armlet
    (Quest 39), return to the Water Dragon Temple and talk to Strom to trigger this
    quest. Strom will ask you to increase the number of Aquatic monsters. Your
    objective is to bring the Aquatics to the top of the list.
    
    Before you start the quest, you may find the door to Strom's Den closed, but
    you now have access to the inner area through the door to the right of the
    temple entrance. You will have to find all four Strom's Jewels and put them
    into the statues in the room before Strom's Den to open the door. If you have
    the Faerie's Grove (Quest 6) fully activated and know about the Spirits, you
    will also find the Water Spirit in there. Make sure you get the Water Spirit
    before you put the four Jewels into the statues. Once you put all four Jewels
    in, the door leading to the inner area will be locked. In the Cascade, take
    the first left and then take the second left to reach B2. On this level, you
    can find Strom's Green and Gold Jewels. Go back to the Cascade. Take the first
    left again and go all the way to the end to reach B3. On this level, you can
    find Strom's Blue Jewel and the Water Spirit. Go back to the Cascade again.
    This time go all the way to the end and take the last left. Then take the
    second right to get Strom's Red Jewel.
    
    For Aquatic Ecology, the monsters in Lake Malar and the Water Dragon Temple
    count towards the quest. You should be able to find all monster types in the
    temple.
    
    Complete the quest and you will get the Serpentbrand. Note that you will fail
    this quest if you trigger the possessed form of Strom, Slask. Defeating Slask
    gives you the axe Chaosbringer. Check the section "Triggering the possessed
    form of the elemental lords..." below for more information.
    
    If the Jewel Beast has not waked up yet, Strom will tell you about it when you
    return to visit him after completing this quest. It will unlock Jewel Beast's
    Lair. Refer to the Jewel Beast (Quest 33) for more information.
    
    
    -- About Ecology...
    In Melvir Library, there is a book on the ecology talking about the food chain
    and feeding relationships between different type of monsters. You may check it
    out if you want. Basically, if monster type A feeds on monster type B, you
    should actively kill monster type A to let type B flourish. If you want type A
    to flourish, then you should spare some type B so that type A has something to
    feed on. You may follow the book if it helps, but I usually just kill
    everything other than the type I want to raise and it works fine for me.
    
    
    -- Triggering the Possessed Form of the Elemental Lords...
    If you completed the ecology quest for an elemental lord in a previous
    playthrough, you may trigger that lord's evil form if you do its ecology quest
    at ER 18 or above. These are the criteria for triggering the evil form:
    
    1. Completed the ecology quest at least once for an elemental lord in previous
       playthroughs.
    2. In current playthrough, activate the same ecology quest.
    3. Visit a town at ER 18 or above after you have activated the ecology quest.
    4. Go back to visit the elemental lord. He will be possessed and turn evil.
    
    When the elemental lords turn evil, you are forced into battle with them.
    Defeating the evil lords will give you unique axes that are retrospective to
    the bosses in previous SaGa games. Unlike the original elemental lords, losing
    to the evil ones will be game over.
    
    If you had done an ecology quest in previous playthrough but still want to
    complete it again in the current playthrough at ER 18 or above, you may
    activate the quest and then complete it without going back to town. As long as
    you do not visit a town after triggering the quest, the lord will not turn
    evil. Here are the steps:
    
    1. Activate the ecology quest by talking to the lord.
    2. Do not visit any town until you complete the quest.
    3. Go back and forth between different areas to respawn the monsters if needed.
           - Aquatic Ecology: Water Dragon Temple <-> Lake Malar
           - Insect Ecology: Great Pit <-> Bayre Plateau
           - Beast Ecology: Mt. Scurve <-> Crystal Lake/Aquamarine Caves
           - Plant Ecology: Plains <-> Mt. Tomae
    
    Note that you can replenish your proficiency points at Crystal Lake by
    equipping/unequipping the proficiencies. This is especially useful when you
    need to climb up Mt. Scurve to check the rankings with Avi.
    
    If you want to complete more than one ecology quests after ER 18, you may do it
    one by one. For example, activate the first ecology quest and complete it
    without going back to town. After you are done, go back to town to recover.
    Then activate the second one and complete it without going back town. The same
    goes for the third and the fourth.

    47. The Underwater Temple               ER: 17 - 22                   [QT047]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Complete Stolen Nymphs (Quest 18).
            - Talk to Marina in any coastal town.
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat Guardian and obtain the fatestone Black Diamond.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards:
            - Black Diamond and Jewels
            - Nymph's Bangle
        Chests:
            - Underwater Temple: Underwater Temple Map, Yucomb's Trident, Blue Elf,

        Proficiencies: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    After you have completed Stolen Nymphs (Quest 18), Marina will appear in
    coastal towns again at ER 17 or above. When you talk to her, she will ask you
    to do a favor for her. If you agree, you will be brought to the Underwater
    Temple. You will not be able to return until you finish the quest.
    
    The temple is rather straight forward. However, watch out for holes on the
    floor. If you are careless, you will drop back to the level below. Pay special
    attention to the holes at the center of the first room on 2F and the fourth
    room on 3F. You cannot see them until it is too late, due to camera angle.
    
    The two fixed battles on 2F and 3F should be easy. On 4F, you will need to
    fight the Guardian. It has 12,000HP and its defense is high. Nevertheless, it
    should not be too tough at this ER. After defeating it and getting the Black
    Diamond, go back to 1F to head out. You can take advantage of the holes to get
    down to 1F quickly.
    
    Is this quest too easy? When you get out of the temple, Saruin's Minion Strife
    will come and try to take your fatestone. Show him your power and kick him back
    to the Abyss.
    
    When you are back on land, you will receive the Nymph's Bangle from Marina.

    48. Theodore's Madness                  ER: 18 - 22                   [QT048]

            - Complete Constance Kidnapped (Quest 28) before ER 18.
            - Talk to the Dominion soldier in Yeoville or Bruelle.
            - Or talk to Lord Heinrich in Eugenstadt directly.
        Complete Condition:
            - After defeating Ifrit, receive the fatestone Ruby from Lady Flammar.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards:
            - Constance's Key
            - 10,000G
            - Ruby and Jewels
        Chests:

            - Pagan Ruins: Pagan Ruins Map, 666G, 3000G, Gold, Gold, Gold,
                           100G + Armor, 100G + Weapon, Phantom Sword,
                           Raksha Sword, (Weapon or Jewels), (Weapon or Jewels)
        Proficiencies:
            - Mirsaburg Castle: Pick Locks
            - Pagan Ruins: Find Chests, Pick Locks, Disarm Traps
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    If you have completed Constance Kidnapped (Quest 28), a Dominion soldier will
    look for you in Yeoville or Bruelle at ER 18 or above. He will tell you that
    Lord Theodore has laid siege to Weiserheim. Go to Eugenstadt to talk to Lord
    Heinrich for more information.
    
    After talking to Heinrich, go to Raphael's Chamber on 2F and talk to Constance.
    She will give you the Constance's Key, which allows you to enter Mirsaburg
    Castle from the back door. Also, from this point on, you can recruit Raphael
    if your party has an empty spot.
    
    In Mirsaburg, go to the alley behind the Crystal Cartel shop and get into
    Mirsaburg Castle through the back door. Find your way to Theodore's Chambers
    on 3F. Read the map there to unlock Pagan Ruins.
    
    Pagan Ruins 1F has four doors and each door has a statue in front of it. If you
    enter the doors whose statues are facing away from the door, you will get to
    3F, where you can find some chests. But it is also filled with monsters. If you
    enter the door whose statue is facing towards the door, you will get to one of
    the areas on 2F. Which area you get to depends on the number of lit candles on
    1F. To increase the number of lit candles, simple go straight forward on 1F.
    When you leave 1F from the top, you will be sent back to the bottom and the
    number of lit candles will increase by one. To get to where Theodore is, light
    all 6 candles and go to 2F.
    
    The boss at Pagan Ruins is the Red Dragon and it has 14,000HP. Similar to the
    Silver Dragon and Gold Dragon, it usually starts off the battle with its
    Breath attack. The Red Dragon can drop the lance Malystrix, but it is very rare
    and may take many soft resets to get it. After you defeat the Dragon and come
    to the large circle room, you will see a lot of Theodores! The real one is
    indicated by the direction the statue is facing.
    
    Now that you know the Theodore at Weiserheim is an impostor, go to Weiserheim
    and you will face the last boss of this quest--Ifrit. Ifrit has auto self-
    immolation. If you hit it with a contact attack, the damage will be reflected.
    So it is a good idea to use ranged or non-contact attacks. However, if you are
    short on decent ranged attacks, you may try this. Use fixed battle order and
    have the first character use a weak regular attack to dissipate its shield.
    Then the other characters can follow with powerful techs. Remember that the
    shield will go back online next turn, so you have to do the weak attack every
    turn to take its shield offline. Ifrit has only 9574HP.
    
    After the battle, you will be back to the Castle. Tell Flammar that you are
    ready to face Saruin and receive the fatestone Ruby.

    49. The Dragon Knight                   ER: 18 - 22                   [QT049]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Have Raphael or an empty spot in your party.
            - Talk to Lord Heinrich in Eugenstadt after completing Theodore's
              Madness (Quest 48).
        Complete Condition:
            - Perform the Dragon Vortex during the battle with Dragon Knight.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards:
            - Templar's Shield and Jewels
            - Mirsa's Armor and Jewels
        Chests:
            - Drachenvale: 600G + Jewels, Gold
        Proficiencies:
            - Drachenvale: Find Chests, Find Ore, Mine
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    After you have completed Theodore's Madness (Quest 48), visit Lord Heinrich
    with Raphael or an empty spot in your party. He will ask Raphael to go to the
    Dragon's Court to see Dragon Knight. Agree to help Raphael to start this quest.
    
    Go through Drachenvale to reach Dragon's Court. When you meet Dragon Knight,
    you will go into a battle with him. Dragon Knight will not attack you, but to
    win the battle, you have to perform the Dragon Vortex.
    
    Here is some advice for the Dragon Vortex. Put the first character in the front
    row, the second in the middle row, and the third in the last row. Use fixed
    battle order to have them act from front to back. They should use techs (or
    spells) of the same type (e.g. all dash attacks or all non-dash attacks). Make
    sure those techs can form a combo. You can set the other two characters to
    defend so that they don't interfere.
    
    Upon the success in performing the Dragon Vortex, you complete the quest. You
    will receive jewels as your reward and you will also find the Templar's Shield
    in your inventory. If you have ever seen Neidhart earlier in the current
    playthrough, whether it was a mandatory cutscene or not, Neidhart will come to
    kill Dragon Knight. If you want to recruit Dragon Knight or get Mirsa's Armor,
    you should either avoid seeing Neidhart at all or recruit him into your party
    before doing this event. Then Neidhart will not come to kill Dragon Knight.
    
    If Dragon Knight is not killed by Neidhart after the Dragon Vortex event, you
    may go back to town and return here to trigger the next part. Note that you
    must have an empty spot in your party to trigger it. When you return, you will
    see Dragon Knight fighting the Minion Spite. Join Dragon Knight to defeat
    Spite. After the battle, you can get Mirsa's Armor and Dragon Knight will stay
    in your party. You cannot dismiss Dragon Knight through the Minstrel; however,
    if you LP-kill him, you will not be able to recruit him again.
    
    Just an extra piece of information. If you visit Constance in Eugenstadt
    Castle after Theodore's Madness, she will give you the Talisman, which protects
    against unconsciousness and instant death. Furthermore, choosing the first
    option during the conversation will have a small effect on the ending.
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Albert...
    When you obtain Mirsa's Armor, Albert will have a costume change.
    
    
    -- If You Are Playing as Sif...
    After the battle with Dragon Knight, Sif will ask him how to restore the
    glimmer of the Dragon's Eye. Then you will be brought into a battle with a
    Silver Dragon. The Dragon's Eye will be restored after you defeat the Dragon.

    50. Frozen Lake Faerie                  ER: 0 - 22                    [QT050]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Revived a character through Death in Netherworld or reached ER 22.
            - Talk to the Frozen Lake Faerie in front of Frosthold Fortress.
        Complete Condition:
            - Take the lock of hair and throw it into the lake in Nisa Cavern.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards:
            - Jewels
        Chests: None
        Proficiencies: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    In order to talk to the Frozen Lake Faerie, you first need to revive a
    character through Death in the Netherworld or to reach ER 22. When the
    requirement is met, an action prompt will appear if you go to the entrance of
    the Frosthold Fortress. The Frozen Lake Faerie will ask you to take her lock
    of hair and drop it into the legendary lake under Kaklim Desert.
    
    Take the lock of hair and bring it to Merholm in Nisa Cavern. When you are on
    the bridge before the Temple of Nisa, you should now see an action prompt. Hit
    the button to throw the hair into the lake to complete the quest. You may refer
    to Missing Taralians (Quest 24) for directions to Merholm.
    
    After completing this quest, the ice covering the Frosthold Fortress will melt
    and the Fortress will now be accessible.

            - Revive a character through Death in Netherworld.
        Complete Condition:
            - Obtain the fatestone Obsidian Sword and defeat the Minion Spite
              outside Frosthold Fortress.
        Failing Condition:
            - Lose to Spite.

        Proficiencies:
            - Frosthold Fortress: Find Chests, Pick Locks, Disarm Traps
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    To trigger this quest, you need to revive a character through Death in the
    Netherworld. Death will then tell you that there is a powerful weapon in the
    Frosthold Fortress. Although you can still access the Fortress at ER 22 without
    reviving a character, you do not get the quest notes this way.
    
    The Frosthold Fortress is located in Shiverland. Before you can access the
    Fortress, you have to complete the Frozen Lake Faerie (Quest 50) first. When
    you come back, the Fortress will defrost, allowing you to go in.
    
    Or if you are really in a hurry to access the Fortress, it is possible to skip
    Frozen Lake Faerie. You can decline to help the faerie. Then when you walk back
    to Shiverland, the Fortress will defrost. Thanks Valorous for the tip.
    
    Inside the Fortress, you will see the Red Mage. Although he is the only
    character who can use Sorcery and Necromancy spells, beware if you let this
    shady character join you. On your way down, you will see two candle puzzles.
    In each puzzle, changing all candles to the same color will open a gate. Change
    them to different color to open all the gates. Note that, however, you do not
    need to complete the puzzles or open any gate to progress the quest.
    
    Find your way down to 1F. In the Statue Room, you will have to defeat Frielei
    and her pet to get the Obsidian Sword. After the battle, if you have an empty
    spot in your party, you can ask Frielei to join you. This is the only chance to
    recruit Frielei. And later if you let her leave your party, you will not be
    able to get her back again.
    
    Backtrack to the entrance. When you leave the Fortress, the Red Mage will ask
    you to hand over the Obsidian Sword. He is actually the Minion Spite. Defeat
    him and show him who is the boss.

    To unlock this quest for future playthroughs, you need to complete Assassins'
    Guild (Quest 32), defeat the Minion Scorn during Ailing Emperor (Quest 27),
    Pirate Invasion (Quest 35), or An Unlucky Woman (Quest 53), and talk to Death
    in the Netherworld in a playthrough. If you have met all these conditions, you
    will see a cutscene of the Minion talking with Death at the very beginning when
    you start a new char. The only exception is that if you have also unlocked
    Neidhart's opening scene, it will override Darque's unless your new character
    is Aisha.
    
    After you have seen the cutscene, you will be able to recruit Darque in most of
    the towns to trigger this quest. Darque will regain some of the memories when
    his DEX/INT hits 16, 22, 30, and 40. You will see the scenes when you go to
    town. As he regains memories, his Assassin class (DEX) and Wizard class (INT)
    levels will increase. The class levels are 2 at 22 DEX/INT, 3 at 30 DEX/INT,
    and 4 at 40 DEX/INT.
    
    To unlock the "real" Darque, you need to get his DEX to 50. He will then leave
    the party and run back to the Assassins' Guild. Go to the Assassins' Guild
    headquarters and talk to him. Invite him to fight Saruin together. Darque will
    get to level 5 Assassin and you will get the Darque's Sword.
    
    To unlock Aldora, you need to get Darque's INT to 40 before his DEX gets to 50.
    After you have seen the memory scene of 40 INT, head to the Netherworld and
    talk to Death. You will now have the option to go to the Purgatory. Work your
    way down to the 1000th level and a scene will trigger at the end. Darque will
    awaken as Aldora and leave your party. Pick up the Wizard's Ring and go back to
    a town. Show Aldora the ring to recruit her again. Aldora is now a level 5
    Wizard.
    
    If you complete the game with Aldora in the final party, you will see Aldora's
    original sprite in the ending. However, you will NOT be able to use that sprite
    in future playthroughs. In fact, Darque will go back to his amnesia form and
    you will have to go through the quest again.

    53. An Unlucky Woman                    ER: 2 - 22                    [QT053]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Talk to Schiele in a pub.
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat Schirach in Shadow Palace
        Failing Condition:
            - Reach ER 12 before triggering the scene where Schirach awakens.
        Rewards:
            - Diamond and Jewels
        Chests:
            - Shadow Palace: Astral Coat, Black Robe, Miracle Drug
        Proficiencies: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This quests requires at least three playthroughs to complete. In your first
    playthrough, you may see a woman named Schiele being pestered by a few men in a
    pub. Talk to them to see a cutscene. After that, exit and reenter the pub.
    Schiele should now be gone. Talk to the bartender to fully trigger this quest.
    
    The earliest you can start this quest is ER 2. After triggering the quest, look
    for Schiele in a pub and talk to her every two ER until ER 11. You will not be
    able to find her at ER 12 or above. So in the first playthrough, you can talk
    to her at most 5 times. In subsequent playthroughs, Schiele will start to
    appear in the pub at ER 3. Again, talk to her every two ER until ER 11.
    
    You will have to talk to Schiele for a total of 12 times in 12 different pubs
    to progress the quest. After you talk to her in a pub, she will not appear in
    the same pub again. So you may want to keep track of the pubs where you have
    already talked to her. Here is the list of pubs Schiele can be in:
    
    1.  Altours              2.  Aurefont
    3.  Jelton               4.  Mirsaburg
    5.  North Estamir        6.  Northpoint
    7.  Oapu                 8.  South Estamir
    9.  Tarmitta             10. Weiserheim
    11. Weston               12. Yeoville
    
    Schiele will only tell you to go away when you talk to her the first few times.
    Then starting at about the fifth time, she will tell you a sad story each time.
    At the 12th time, she will take you out for a walk. After a short cutscene, the
    Minion Scorn will appear. This Scorn is strong and he can act up to 4 times a
    turn. Given the limited ER, it is hard (but not impossible) to beat him.
    Whether you win or lose, Scorn will take the fatestone Diamond from Schiele.
    Without the Diamond, Schirach awakens. In the end, you will get the Diamond.
    
    After Schirach has awakened, visit the Temple of Schirach in Estamir Tunnels B2
    at ER 19 or above. When you talk to the priest, Schirach will come to open up a
    portal and invite you to her Shadow Palace. If this scene does not trigger, try
    going to town and come back.
    
    The Shadow Palace is straight forward. To get the Black Robe and Astral Coat,
    you need to defeat the monsters guarding them. At the end of the Palace, you
    will face Schirach. Schirach has 42,000HP and she is deadly for her ability to
    inflict status ailments such as sleep and charm. Good protection against status
    ailments and/or sonic waves can be a key to victory.

        Trigger Condition:
            - Hear the tale "Giants and Auldburg" from the Minstrel before
              completing Trials of Elore (Quest 55) or The Netherworld (Quest 56).
        Complete Condition:
            - Talk to the elder Giant in Ettinham.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards: None
        Chests:

        Proficiencies: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    If your favors with Elore, Saruin, Death, and Schirach are all below 200, you
    will unlock this quest when you talk to the Minstrel at ER 20 or above,
    provided that you do not have "Face Saruin" in your quest notes yet. The
    Minstrel will tell you the story "Giants and Auldburg."
    
    If you did not but want to trigger this quest, check the topic "Unlocking All
    Three Ending Quests" under Miscellaneous Topics for more information on how to
    change favor.
    
    To unlock Auldburg, talk to the kid near the road in Uso. In the first room
    of Auldburg, you will see two statues. Turn them to face each other to open the
    door. Now take the left at the second room. On 2F and 3F from this side of the
    castle, you will find two Castle Guardians. Defeat them to unlock two statues
    at the center and right rooms on 1F. If you make these two statues facing each
    other, the door at the top right room on 1F will open. The Water Well there
    will lead to Ettinham. Before you go, you may want to go up to 2F from the
    right side and defeat the third Castle Guardian. This will unlock a statue at
    the left room on 1F. Making that and the center statue facing each other will
    open the door to the throne room. Inside you will find a chest with 5000G and
    an armor.
    
    Now go through the Water Well to reach Ettinham. At this point, the Giants will
    not provide you any service. To complete the quest, you need to talk the elder
    Giant on a lookout tower. The Giant will tell you Saruin's location. This will
    also unlock Face Saruin (Quest 57) in your quest notes.
    
    After the talk, you can now use the shops in Ettinham. Furthermore, you can
    use the Ettin Falls to go back to the outside world without going through
    Auldburg.
    
    Note that there is no quest notes for this quest. The tale "Giants and
    Auldburg" marks the beginning of this quest while the trigger of "Face Saruin"
    marks the completion of this quest.

    55. Trials of Elore                     ER: 20 - 22                   [QT055]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Hear the tale "Heroes and Gods at War" from the Minstrel before
              completing Auldburg (Quest 54) or The Netherworld (Quest 56).
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat all 12 bosses in Trials of Elore.
            - Talk to Elore at the top of the Trials.
        Failing Condition:
            - Complete Auldburg (Quest 54) or The Netherworld (Quest 56) before
              taking on the Trials of Elore.
        Rewards: None
        Chests:
            - Trials of Elore: Trials of Elore Map, Metis' Manifer, Eres' Bow,
                               Main Gauche
        Proficiencies: None
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Regardless of your favor with any other gods, if your favor with Elore is 200
    or above, you will unlock this quest when you talk to the Minstrel at ER 20 or
    above, provided that you do not have "Face Saruin" in your quest notes yet. The
    Minstrel will tell you the story "Heroes and Gods at War."
    
    One of the easiest ways to increase your favor with Elore is to buy Cosmology
    spells from Temple of Elore in Melvir. You get one favor point for every 200G
    you spend there, so 20,000G should guarantee access to the trials. For more
    information on changing favor, check the topic "Unlocking All Three Ending
    Quests" under Miscellaneous Topics.
    
    To reach Trials of Elore, go to Steppes of Galessa and use the exit on the left
    of the map. When you are at the Sun's Altar, "light stairs" will appear. Ascend
    the stairs to start the Trials. Once you start, you cannot return to the world
    until you complete it.
    
    There are 12 bosses in Trials of Elore. Their HP are listed below:
      Ogre Champion - HP 7355          Frozen Corpse - HP 9333
      Grendel       - HP 9353          Zaratan       - HP 13,118
      Irminsul      - HP 15,575        Juscony       - HP 12,435
      Dinosaur      - HP 7000          Destroyer     - HP 10,000
      Amul Amut     - HP 14,569        Wyrmfounder   - HP 12,674
      Arastle       - HP 11,574        Gold Dragon   - HP 18,000
    
    From what I read on the message board, Amul Amut seems to be the boss most
    people have problem with. Amul Amut has high AGI, giving it a high evasion
    rate. On top of that, it uses Starlight, which can block your attacks. The best
    way to tackle that is to form combos. Only the last attack in a combo can miss
    or be blocked. For example, if you form a 5-person combo, the first 4 attacks
    will always hit. So you may want to play with your techs to figure out some
    combos beforehand. Then during the battle, use fixed battle order to pull out
    those combos. Amul Amut is not that hard if you can actually get in some hits.
    
    After you defeat all the bosses, go to the end of the Trials and talk with
    Elore. He will tell you where Saruin is located and the quest Face Saruin
    (Quest 57) will be unlocked in your quest notes. Note that although it seems
    that you can skip certain bosses in the Trials, you must defeat all 12 bosses
    or Elore will not appear.
    
    Note that there is no quest notes for this quest. The tale "Heroes and Gods at
    War" marks the beginning of this quest while the trigger of "Face Saruin"
    marks the completion of this quest.

    56. The Netherworld                     ER: 20 - 22                   [QT056]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Hear the tale "A Tale of Death" from the Minstrel before completing
              Auldburg (Quest 54) or Trials of Elore (Quest 55).
        Complete Condition:
            - Ask Death for the location of Saruin.
        Failing Condition: None
        Rewards: None
        Chests:
            - Netherworld: Netherworld Map, Gold, Gold, Gold
        Proficiencies:
            - Netherworld: Jump Lv.0
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    If your favor with Elore is below 200 and your favor with Saruin, Death, or
    Schirach is 200 or above, you will unlock this quest when you talk to the
    Minstrel at ER 20 or above, provided that you do not have "Face Saruin" in your
    quest notes yet. The Minstrel will tell you the story "A Tale of Death."
    
    One of the easiest ways to get a lot of favor points with Saruin is to kill
    Galahad for the Ice Sword (Quest 42); otherwise, you may have to rely on
    pulling out a lot of Pillar vortexes. However, killing Galahad still does not
    guarantee getting The Netherworld. To increase the chance, it helps to leave
    the killing to when you are ready to trigger the ending quest. For more
    information on changing favor, check the topic "Unlocking All Three Ending
    Quests" under Miscellaneous Topics.
    
    After hearing the tale about Death, visit Pyrix in Mt. Tomae and he will let
    you access the door at the back of his chamber, which leads to the Netherworld.
    At the end of Netherworld, you will meet Death. Asking him where Saruin is will
    unlock Face Saruin (Quest 57) in your quest notes.
    
    There are a few possible options when you talk to Death. You may sacrifice the
    life of a comrade for the Sword of Death or the Hauberk of Death. If there is
    any sacrificed character or any other character who died as part of a quest or
    the story, you may revive him/her through Death. However, the cost is losing
    one LP on your main character permanently. Another option appears during the
    quest Who Am I? (Quest 52). After you get Darque's INT to 40 and witness the
    memory scene, you can ask Death to show you the Purgatory. Lastly, you can
    challenge Death to a battle. In fact, this is a good way to spark some techs
    later in the game. You do not get a game over if you lose. Instead, you will
    only be kicked out of his room. However, watch out for your LP since quite a
    few of Death's attacks can damage LP. Note that after defeating him, you cannot
    fight him again. Defeating or losing to Death affects the quest notes and your
    favor with him. Other than that, it does not affect anything else in the game.
    
    A quest notes topic named "The Netherworld" is triggered upon meeting with
    Death. However, this quest will never be marked completed even if you have
    triggered Face Saruin or have defeated Death.

    57. Face Saruin                         ER: 20 - 22                   [QT057]
        Trigger Condition:
            - Complete Auldburg (Quest 54).
            - Or complete Trials of Elore (Quest 55).
            - Or complete the Netherworld (Quest 56).
        Complete Condition:
            - Defeat Saruin.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    When you talk to the elder Giant in Ettinham, complete Trials of Elore, or ask
    Death where Saruin is, this quest will be unlocked. You will be informed that
    Saruin is imprisoned in Isthmus.
    
    When you are ready to face Saruin, head to Isthmus Cavern. You will find the
    entrance to Quietus at the end of the cave. The monsters in Quietus do not
    chase you, so you can easily avoid them to conserve LP. On each level, a Minion
    is guarding a treasure. You can skip them if you do not want the treasures. In
    fact, when you get to 4F, you will have to fight again the Minions you defeated
    individually earlier in the dungeon. So if you have defeated all three of them
    to get all the treasures, all three Minions will gang up on you. This can be
    quite a challenge for a moderately prepared party.
    
    The final boss awaits you at 5F. After some whining and talking, you will have
    one last chance to change your equipments and quicksave. Then it is time for
    the big showdown.
    
    Saruin has two forms. The first form should be relatively easy. One thing to
    watch out is that his Empty Glimmer attack hits all the characters in the front
    row. So you may want to keep only one character at the front. After he takes
    about 8000-10,000 damage, he will change to the second form. You will notice
    that your attack and healing powers are greatly reduced. This is due to the
    pillars around. Each time you attack him (or he attacks you), one pillar will
    break. The less pillars are around, the more damage or healing both parties can
    do. Every so often (about 4-8 turns), Saruin will use Rain of Blades and throw
    all the pillars on you. Then he will replenish all the pillars. If you can
    attack enough times to deplete all the pillars before he uses Rain of Blades,
    he will only replenish the pillars and no attack will occur.
    
    If you are having trouble with Saruin, here are a few suggestions:
    
    1. Get the moonstone. Equip it on a character and keep him dead so that Saruin
       would waste turns trying to Animate Dead him but fail.
    
    2. Buy high defense armors such as Field Plates, Fashionable Helms, Conqueror
       Gloves, and Leg Mails for your characters. Then switch their weapons to
       Defense mode. They should now take a lot less damage.
    
    3. If you have a Rosalian Mage, have him/her synthesize Overdrive. When needed,
       cast it to heal up the whole party.
    
    4. Use pyrology spell Flame of Life or synthesis spell Song of Souls to cast
       regen on your party members. With reduced healing power during his second
       form, regen is very useful. Second Wind can also be used for the regen.
    
    
    -- About New Game Plus...
    After the ending, you will have the chance to make a Completed Game Data. You
    can load from this save to start a new game plus. In a new game plus, the
    apothecary and shop clout levels are carried over. Data about certain quests
    such as Who Am I? (Quest 52) and an Unlucky Woman (Quest 53) are also carried
    over. Classes that your characters have ever changed to are unlocked and you
    can choose them as your next main character's starting class. Moreover, you
    will earn more jewels from the quests, making it easier and easier to get high
    level classes.
    
    
    -- If You Are on Your Second or Later Playthroughs...
    When you are walking past the pool-like thingy on Quietus 4F, you will feel a
    strange presence. If you choose to check it out, you will be brought to the
    Fatestone Chamber. There are ten fatestone altars in the chamber. For each
    fatestone you offer up, Saruin will become more powerful. If you offer up all
    10 fatestones, you will be fighting the ultimate 10FS Saruin, who can act up
    to 4 times a turn. If you are up for a real challenge, try it out.
    
    Note that you may notice some fatestones are already on the altars. If you did
    not get certain fatestones or if you lost the fatestones to the Minions during
    the game, they will be offered up automatically.

        - With an empty spot, keep asking him to play songs until he joins.
        - He leaves the party automatically upon entering a pub.
        - He needs to leave party before you can trigger the ending quests.
        - He does not join if any of the three ending quests is active but none is
          completed (that is, he will not join if you have heard one of the three
          ending quest tales from him but have not got "Face Saruin" in your quest
          notes yet).
        - Cannot be recruited if Trials of Elore is completed.
    
    Note: To use the Minstrel in the final battle, you must not complete the Trials
          of Elore. Instead, you need to complete any of the other two ending
          quests--Auldburg or The Netherworld. You cannot use the Minstrel during
          those quests. However, once you have completed one of those, you will be
          able to recruit him back into your party.

    Most of the information in this section was obtained from Ramtieger's Game
    System FAQ. It is my intent to reorganize Ramtieger's lists into a more compact
    form for quicker reference. However, "compact" means some information has to
    give. Please refer to Ramtieger's FAQ for complete information.
    
    While most of the columns should be self-explanatory, it is still worth giving
    a short description for each column. You can also find the description from
    Ramtieger's FAQ.
    
    Rank:     Technique Rank.
    BP:       Base BP Cost.
    DP/LP:    Base DP/LP Cost.
    Power:    Base Power.
    Growth:   Power Growth Rate.
    Stat:     Associated Stat that affects the power growth.
    Accuracy: Accuracy.
    Speed:    Activation Speed. A Fast technique has a higher chance to act first
              during a turn, and Slow is the opposite.
    Dash:     Y = Dash type attack. N = Non-dash type attack.
    Contact:  Y = Contact attack. N = Non-contact attack.
    Target:   Target.
    Dmg60:    Listed Damage with associated stat at 60. The Power and Growth can be
              vague to determine the actual power. This is added to make it easier
              to compare techniques.
    Effect:   Additional Effect(s).

          Recruiting Dowd with Characters other than Jamil                [RS801]
      ========================================================
    
    
    Normally, Dowd is available only in Jamil's game and other main characters
    cannot recruit him. He starts in Jamil's party and he is not re-recruitable if
    he is dismissed from the party. However, there is a trick to recruit Dowd with
    other main characters if you give up using him in a previous playthrough with
    Jamil. Here are the steps.
    
    1. In Jamil's game, complete Wuhan's Secret (Quest 12) with Dowd in your party.
    
    2. After you have collected the quest rewards from the job agent in South
       Estamir's pub, walk out of the pub (don't use the triangle button).
    
    3. At the door, Dowd will ask to leave the party and stay in Estamir. Let him
       leave the party.
    
    4. At ER 12 or later, trigger the Assassins' Guild (Quest 32), pay to sleep at
       South Estarmir's Inn, and witness a scene.
    
    5. Complete Assassins' Guild.
    
    6. Now Dowd will be recruitable by other main characters in New Game Plus. He
       will be in the Slave Trader's House after you have completed Wuhan's Secret.
       If you do not see him there, give it some time for him to spawn.
    
    Thanks Jati No Rei for discovering Dowd being recruitable by other main
    characters and other information regarding the recruitment of Dowd.
    
    If you did not let Dowd leave the party at the pub, you may dismiss him using
    Minstrel any time before step 4 and follow the rest of the steps. This should
    unlock Dowd as well. Thanks SaintAjora for the tips.

          Getting Jamil, Dowd, and Farah in the Same Party                [RS802]
      ========================================================
    
    
    The game imposes a few restrictions on getting Jamil, Dowd, and Farah into the
    same party:
    
    1. If your main character is Jamil, you cannot recruit Farah, but you start
       with Dowd in the party.
    
    2. If your main character is not Jamil, Jamil and Dowd are exclusive to each
       other under normal circumstances. When you recruit one of them into your
       party, the other will disappear.
    
    For those who are interested in getting the South Estamir Trio into the same
    party, I have discovered a little trick that you can use:
    
    1. Your main character must be female.
    
    2. Complete Wuhan's Secret (Quest 12) and get rescued by Jamil.
    
    3. After the quest, Jamil will be in Farah's House. As long as you do not talk
       to him, he will stay there forever, even if you have Dowd in your party.
    
    4. Go to the Slave Trader's House to recruit Dowd. (Note that you can recruit
       him only if he has been unlocked as outlined in the previous topic
       "Recruiting Dowd with Characters other than Jamil".)
    
    5. Go back to Farah's House and recruit Jamil.
    
    6. Recruit Farah during Assassins' Guild (Quest 32).

          Calculating DP/LP Cost                                          [RS803]
      ==============================
    
    
    The DP/LP charts from Bladewind's FAQ are used here.
    
    Stages of DP/LP costs:
    DP (for weapon techs):
        8 -> 6 -> 4 -> 3 -> 2 -> 1 -> 1y -> 0
    LP (for spells):
        4 -> 3 -> 2 -> 1 -> 1 -> 1y -> 0 -> 0
    
    The number of stages of reduction is determined by the following rules:
    
    1. You get 1 stage of reduction if you have at least level 1 in the skill.
    
    2. You get 1 stage of reduction for each class level of 2 and above. This
       applies to the skills in the class. (For example, a level 3 Ranger will
       get 2 stages of reduction for Bow from this rule.)
    
    3. You get 1 stage of reduction to every skill if you are in legendary class.
    
    4. You get 1 stage of reduction to all weapon techs if you have weapon crown.
       You get 1 stage of reduction to all spells if you have magic crown.
    
    5. You only get a maximum of 5 stages of reduction from the rules above.
    
    6. For every +2DP modifier on the weapon, you get 1 stage of reduction when
       using that weapon.
    
    
    Example:
    
    Kjar Sentinel - Class Level 3, Bow Level 4, with Weapon Crown
    Weapon - Kjar Bow with +2DP modifier
    Plasma Shot's Base DP cost - 4
    Zapper's Base DP cost - 8
    
    From rule 1: 1 stage of reduction (have at least level 1 in bow)
    From rule 2: 2 stages of reduction (for being class level 3)
    From rule 3: none
    From rule 4: 1 stage of reduction (have weapon crown)
    Total      : 4 stages of reduction
    Rule 5 does not apply.
    From rule 6: 1 stage of reduction (weapon has +2DP modifier)
    Final Total: 5 stages of reduction
    
    Count 5 times to the right using the DP stages chart, we have the following
    DP costs:
    Plasma Shot: 4 -> 0
    Zapper: 8 -> 1
    
    For the Base DP/LP costs of various techs and spells, please consult
    Ramtieger's Game System FAQ.
    
    Note that the calculation of BP cost is a lot simpler than DP/LP. The BP cost
    is reduced by 1 for each additional level in the corresponding weapon or magic
    skill. So the maximum BP reduction from the base cost is 5.

          Weapon/Magic Crown                                              [RS804]
      ==========================
    
    
    The weapon/magic crown is only a term describing a character being an expert in
    weapon techs or magic spells. There is no physical item called weapon/magic
    crown in the game. The two crowns are mutually exclusive. Therefore, a
    character cannot obtain both crowns at the same time.
    
    Weapon Crown
        - A character obtains the weapon crown when the character has at least
          20 unique weapon techs (exclude basic techs) and the number of spells is
          10% or less of the number of weapon techs. Martial Arts techs are counted
          as weapon techs. A character with weapon crown receives one stage of
          DP/LP reduction to weapon techs.
    
    Magic Crown
        - A character obtains the magic crown when the character has at least
          10 spells and the number of weapon techs is 10% or less of the number of
          spells. A character with magic crown receives one stage of LP reduction
          to magic spells.
    
    For example, suppose a character has 20 unique weapon techs, the character will
    get the weapon crown if he/she has at most 2 spells. If the character learns a
    third spell, the crown will be lost.
    
    Note that there is no explicit indication in the game on whether a character
    has a weapon crown or magic crown. You can only determine that by counting the
    number of techs/spells or by examining the DP/LP costs.
    
    For more information on DP/LP reductions, refer to the topic "Calculating DP/LP
    Cost."
    
    
    
    
      -----------------------------------------
          Unlocking All Three Ending Quests                               [RS805]
      =========================================
    
    
    It is possible to unlock and complete all three ending quests in the same
    playthrough, namely the neutral ending quest Auldburg (Quest 54), the good
    ending quest Trials of Elore (Quest 55), and the evil ending quest The
    Netherworld (Quest 56).
    
    First of all, you need to unlock all three quests by hearing all three tales
    from the Minstrel at ER 20 or above before you complete any of them.
    
    To unlock Auldburg, your favors with Elore, Saruin, Death, and Schirach all
    need to be below 200. Then you will hear the tale "Giants and Auldburg" from
    the Minstrel.
    
    To unlock Trials of Elore, your favor with Elore needs to be 200 or above. Your
    favors with other gods do not matter. You will hear the tale "Heroes and Gods
    at War" from the Minstrel.
    
    To unlock the Netherworld, your favor with Elore has to be below 200 and your
    favor with Saruin, Death, or Schirach has to be 200 or above. You will hear the
    tale "A Tale of Death" from the Minstrel.
    
    So now the question is how to unlock all three ending quests in the same
    playthrough. Depending on your favors with the gods, you will get one of the
    ending quests when you talk to the Minstrel at ER 20. Before you complete it,
    you can change your favors and talk to the Minstrel again to trigger another
    one. Sometimes changing from one way to another could be easy, but going the
    other way around could be hard. In the following, I will give some suggestions
    that help changing your favors from one quest to another. 
    
    Evil/Neutral to Good (increase favor with Elore):
        - Buy a lot of Cosmology spells from Temple of Elore. You get one favor
          point for each 200G you spend there. If your characters are filled with
          Cosmology spells already, you can always recruit some dummy characters.
        - Perform the vortex The Wheel a number of times in battles.
        - Fight battles in Dry Lands, Rosalia, and Bafal Empire.
    
    Good to Neutral/Evil (decrease favor with Elore):
        - Trigger Elore's Benediction.
        - Buy a lot of spells from Temples other than Elore's.
        - Perform many vortexes other than The Wheel.
        - Fight battles in areas other than Dry Lands, Rosalia, or Bafal Empire.
    
    Neutral to Evil (increase favor with Saruin):
        - Kill Galahad during the Ice Sword (Quest 42).
        - Perform the Pillar vortex in many battles.
        - Fight battles on Walon Isle.
    
    Evil to Neutral (decrease favor with the Evil Gods):
        - Trigger the Evil Gods' Benedictions.
        - Buy a lot of spells from Temples other than Elore's.
        - Perform many vortexes other than The Wheel or Pillar.
    
    In my opinion, it is the easiest to go from Evil/Neutral to Good. As long as
    you have the gold, you can always "buy" your way to Good. The hardest would be
    going from Good to Neutral/Evil. Unless you can pull off Elore's Benediction,
    you may have to increase your favors with all other gods a lot to decrease the
    favor with Elore. The way how this works is that when the total favor with all
    gods exceeds 1000, your favors with all gods decrease so that the total remains
    1000. As a result, if you keep increasing favors with all other gods except
    Elore, his favor will eventually decrease, but it may take quite awhile.
    
    I would suggest you to read the section "Favor" under "Battle System" in
    Ramtieger's Game System FAQ. It has detailed information on how favor points
    are changed in the game as well as information on benedictions. It may help you
    determine the best course of actions to change your favor from one to another.
    
    After unlocking all three quests, you should follow these steps to complete
    them.
    
    1. Talk to the kid in Uso to unlock Auldburg on the map.
    
    2. Visit Pyrix to get access to Netherworld. Then enter and exit Netherworld.
       Make sure you do NOT ask Death where Saruin is if you go down to see him.
    
    3. Go to the Sun's Altar in Steppes of Galessa to complete Trials of Elore.
       You will unlock the first "Face Saruin" in your quest notes.
    
    4. Go through Auldburg to reach Ettinham. Talk to the elder Giant to unlock the
       second "Face Saruin" in your quest notes.
    
    5. Go to the Netherworld and ask Death where Saruin is. This unlocks the third
       "Face Saruin" in your quest notes.
    
    It is important to complete Trials of Elore before you complete any of the
    other two. Once you have "Face Saruin" in your quest notes, you will not be
    able to do the Trials.

          Vortexes                                                        [RS806]
      ================
    
    
    Before you can perform any vortex in the game, you have to satisfy certain
    requirements first. These are the requirements:
    
    1. Perform the Surge of a tech once.
    2. Perform the Reverse of a tech once.
    3. Perform the Surge Reverse of a tech once.
    4. Perform a Combo once.
    5. Perform a Fulcrum once.
    
    To perform a Surge Reverse in early game, the best tech would be Cutting Lunge.
    A Fulcrum is triggered when certain techs or spells are the first attack in a
    combo. These attacks include Splash Shot, Rapid Volley, Rain of Arrows,
    Millionaire, Bird of Fire, Mindblast, Snowstorm, etc. Forming a combo such as
    Rapid Volley + Another Tech will always trigger a Fulcrum.
    
    
    The following is a list of vortexes. The suggested formation may make the
    vortex easier to pull off, but it is not a requirement.
    
    The Scissors
    ------------
    Number of Characters - 2
    Increase Favor with  - Amut and Eres
    Suggested Formation  - Both characters on the same row
    Requirement          - Both characters use Dash type attacks
    
    
    The Pillar
    ----------
    Number of Characters - 3
    Increase Favor with  - Saruin, Death, and Schirach

    Requirement          - All three characters use Non-Dash type attacks
    
    
    The Dragon
    ----------
    Number of Characters - 3
    Increase Favor with  - Yucomb
    Suggested Formation  - Front-Middle-Back
    Requirement          - All three characters use the same type of attacks such
                           as all Dash type or all Non-Dash type
    
    
    The Demon
    ---------
    Number of Characters - 3
    Increase Favor with  - Cyril
    Suggested Formation  - Front-Middle-Back
    Requirement          - All three characters use spells
    
    
    The Stallion

    Suggested Formation  - The characters are on the same row
    Requirement          - All characters use Dash type attacks
    
    
    The Phantom
    -----------
    Number of Characters - 4
    Increase Favor with  - Mirsa
    Suggested Formation  - One Front, two Middle, and one Back
    Requirement          - Not Specified
    
    
    The Wheel
    ---------
    Number of Characters - 5
    Increase Favor with  - Elore
    Suggested Formation  - o o 1 o o
                           4 o o o 5
                           o 2 o 3 o
                         - Have them act in order from 1 to 5. Positions 2 and 3
                           can switch. Positions 4 and 5 can switch.
    Requirement          - Not specified
    
    
    For completeness, included below are the in-game descriptions of Surge,
    Reverse, Surge Reverse, Combination (Combo), Fulcrum, and Vortex.
    
    Surge
        - At times, a combatant who is highly skilled with his or her weapon
          can rush towards the opponent, covering ground with terrible speed.
          Such an attack cannot be dodged. This is known as a "surge."
    
    Reverse
        - After attaining a high level of skill with a weapon, you can sometimes
          unleash a second strike upon your enemy. The mightier the first strike,
          the more damaging the second. This is known as a "reverse."
    
    Surge Reverse
        - Expert fighter can sometimes perform a surge and a reverse
          simultaneously. This ultimate secret is known as the "surge reverse."
    
    Combination (Combo)
        - When multiple combatants focus their strikes upon a single target,
          they sometimes form a chain attack dealing much greater damage.
          This is known as a "combination."
    
    Fulcrum
        - Some spells and techniques can maintain their effects throughout a
          combination when they are used to start one. This increases the chances
          that another combination will occur. This is known as a "fulcrum."
    
    Vortex
        - When combatants unleash a combination from a certain formation,
          they can summon incredible strength and perform a special combination.
          This is known as a "vortex."

          Altours Orchard Mini-Quest                                      [RS807]
      ==================================
    
    
    You may have noticed a man selling fruits in Altours. His list of merchandise
    consists of four different type of fruits, but normally only Fruit and Fruit of
    Luck are available. Successfully completing the orchard mini-quest enables you
    to buy Quality Fruit and Fruit of Riches.
    
    The man standing near the fruit seller usually tells you about his shipment
    from Yeoville being late, but sometimes he will say something different which
    allows you to take on the mini-quest. (At this time, I still have no solid
    information on a sure way to trigger the mini-quest.)
    
    The first time he will tell you that bugs help pollination when flowers are
    blooming. Choose the option to head over to the orchard and then leave. Do not
    kill any bug in the orchard.
    
    Now go on to do some other quests and check back with the man once awhile.
    When the next part is ready, he will tell you that bugs are bad when fruits are
    on the branch. Go to the orchard and this time make sure you kill all the bugs.
    
    Again, do some other quests and check back with the man later. If you completed
    the quest successfully, the man will tell you that it looks like a good harvest
    this year. The fruit merchant will now sell Quality Fruit and Fruit of Riches
    at fairly low prices. However, from my experience, you will not be able to buy
    Fruit of Luck.
    
    Note that you should come back often to check for the second part of the quest,
    such as once every ER. If you wait too long before doing the second part, the
    quest may "fail" and you will get a bad harvest. In any case, it is possible to
    come back later to do this mini-quest again.

          About Weapon Tempering                                          [RS808]
      ==============================
    
    
    Most weapons can be made stronger through tempering. When a weapon is tempered
    with a material, it receives the Power, DP Modifier, and DP bonus/penalty of
    the material. Some materials may even offer ailments/magic resistance.
    
    To actually make the weapon grow stronger, it needs to be tempered with
    materials that are harmonius to the weapon. When you temper weapons at a
    blacksmith, a harmonius material will have its name shown in red at the lower
    right of the screen. You can also check the current material of a tempered
    weapon in the items menu (press the square button to switch the info page if
    needed). The material name will be red if it is harmonius.
    
    After tempering a weapon with harmonius material, you need to break it in. You
    do not need to actually break the weapon by depleting its DP. Instead, you just
    need to use it a good number of times. In the case you actually break the
    weapon, retemper it with the harmonius material again. After you have used it
    enough to break in the material, the power of the weapon will increase and the
    material will no longer be shown in red. Furthermore, the weapon name will be
    followed by a "+1" (or "+2", "+3", etc. at higher tempering stages). Now you
    can temper it with the next harmonius material and repeat the process. Refer to
    Gundam4Fun's Armor/Weapons Guide for the harmonius materials for each weapon.
    
    When you temper the weapon with the last harmonius material, the weapon name
    will immediately change and no longer have a number at the end. However, you
    still need to break in that material. This time when it occurs, the weapon name
    will not change, but the power will still increase and the material will no
    longer be red. After breaking in the final harmonius material, you may retemper
    the weapon with a material that gives better or desirable bonus. Tree Crystal
    is usually the best choice for this final touch. Or sometimes Electrum can be
    used for getting +4 DP mod on some weapon types, such as Bows.
    
    It was believed that once a weapon was tempered with harmonius material, the
    material will break in after using the weapon enough times regardless of what
    tech you use. But some testing reveals that's not the case. Here are the
    results and a few conclusions I have drawn.
    
    I tempered a number of Zweihanders with Southern Iron and here is the number of
    times each one took to "level up". Opponents were Dinosaurs in all cases.
    
    Zweihander 1 : Mix of basic attack and Blunt Strike             | 52 times
    Zweihander 2 : Blunt Strike (1 DP cost) only                    | 34 times
    Zweihander 3 : Blunt Strike (1 DP cost) only                    | 38 times
    Zweihander 4 : Blunt Strike only for 30 times, retempered with  | 35 times
                   Southern Iron, then it "leveled up" after 5 more |
                   Blunt Strike                                     |

    Zweihander 10: -4 DP mod, Cross Break (4 DP cost) only,         | 17 times
                   retempered after 13 uses                         |
    
    Conclusion 1:
    The number of use required is kind of random, but the range seem to be rather
    small given the same conditions (as seen in case 2-4).
    
    Conclusion 2:
    Retempering the weapon with the same material does not reset the "usage
    counter". So you can retemper the weapon with the same material to refill DP
    without worrying that you have to start over. (case 4)
    
    Conclusion 3:
    Using techs that cost DP will reduce the number of times needed to "level up"
    the weapon. The higher the DP cost, the less number of uses is needed.
    (case 5-10)

          Tips on Treasure Hunting with Treasure Map                      [RS809]
      ==================================================
    
    
    This section is contributed by yipviva. The text was directly copied from
    yipvia's post on the message board and has been slightly edited:
    
    The first time I got a level 4 Treasure Map (Steps of Galessa), I was looking
    for a Blue Saber. I quicksaved in Northpoint and started the search. I did keep
    track on the contents I get from it. For more than 2 hours, I've noticed that
    every time I found a particular item, the amount of golds and bonus items are
    always the same. At that time I started wondering if TMs drop contents from a
    list. Also a few days before that I was looking for Amber Meleate from a level
    2 TM. I hunted for more than 1 hour and still couldn't find it which usually it
    shouldn't be that hard. Think of that, I went to kill some monsters since there
    probably won't be any luck finding the Blue Saber from that quicksave. After
    killing some monsters, I quicksaved in Northpoint and started the search again,
    this time I noticed the contents had change and I found the Blue Saber under 4
    resets.
    
    So to the best of my knowledge, this is how TM contents go. When a player got a
    TM, a list of contents will randomly created depends on the player's current
    BR. When the player go to the area where the TM indicated, one of the contents
    from ONLY that list will randomly pick again. Every time the player kill
    monsters, the contents on the list will also change randomly depending on the
    Rank points. So if a player couldn't find a TM item for long time, try killing
    some monsters and search again.
    
    One thing I am not sure of is if a player got a level 1 TM at BR1, will he/she
    finds items like Shooting Star from that TM when he/she is at BR9?

        Gold Dragon Trick                                                 [RS911]
      =====================
    
    Gold is a rather scarce resource in this game. Although this trick does not
    make you rich in minutes, it can still give you a steady supply of gold with
    some work.
    
    To perform this trick, you will have to be at least ER 14 so that the Mine
    Assaulted (Quest 38) is available. Moreover, you may need a team that can
    effectively defeat the Gold Dragon. If you have trouble with the dragon, you
    may have to try again later.
    
    During the quest, if you leave Aurefont (not just the mine) and come back, the
    monsters you defeated in the mine will respawn, including the Gold Dragon.
    Since the Gold Dragon always drops Pure Gold, which sells for 1000G to 1428G a
    piece (depending on your shop clout), you can kill it as many times as you
    want and sell all the Pure Golds for a good profit. Thanks tksnguyen for the
    tip.
    
    When you are performing this trick, do not rescue any miners. It is because any
    miners you rescue will disappear from the mine and they will not count towards
    the number of miners rescued if you leave Aurefont, thus reducing your rewards
    for the quest. Therefore, rescue them only if you are ready to complete the
    quest.

        Lurk/Move Silently Trick                                          [RS921]
      ============================
    
    One may spam the proficiencies Lurk and Move Silently to earn jewels. This is
    especially useful in early game to get enough jewels to get your party to at
    least class level 2.
    
    To perform this trick effectively, your party should have level 0 Covert skill.
    Equip Lurk and Move Silently together with other proficiencies that give you
    the most proficiency points. Then go to a dungeon to spam Lurk and Move
    Silently. You will earn one jewel each time you use a proficiency. With level 0
    Covert skill, Lurk and Move Silently take about 4 seconds to wear off. If your
    Covert skill is higher, you may leave the area to dispel the effect manually.
    When you run out of proficiency points, go back to a town, unequip and re-equip
    a proficency to replenish the proficiency points.
    
    The best places to perform this trick include Geckling Cave and Estamir Tunnels
    where you can quickly step back to town to replenish your proficiency points.
    If you are patient, you can earn over a thousand jewels in an hour.
    
    
    
        Valhalland Monsters Marathon Trick                                [RS922]
      ======================================
    
    This trick was posted by shinybtw on GameFAQs message board. I rephrased and
    reorganized the information in his original post.
    
    This trick allows you to complete Valhalland Monsters (Quest 15) many times to
    reap a large amount of jewels in the form of quest rewards. Note that this is
    different from the "once per ER" approach. This is called the Marathon because
    you will be running around a lot.
    
    Requirements:
    1. The main character is not Albert.
    2. Your ER is 20-21.
    3. You have not heard any of the three ending quests from the Minstrel.
    4. The Frozen Lake Faerie (Quest 50) cannot be activated yet. That means you
       are not at ER 22 and you have not learned about the Frosthold Fortress from
       Death.
    
    Steps:
    1. Talk to Gato to start the quest Valhalland Monsters (Quest 15).
    2. Complete the quest and receive your reward from Gato.
    3. Leave the Valhalland region completely by visiting some place outside of
       Valhalland.
    4. Return to Valhalland and repeat Step 1.
    
    According to shinybtw, the quest can be done a maximum of 32 times. I verified
    the trick worked, but only did about 10 times before I stopped. In any case,
    if you want to do as many times as possible, you should avoid random monsters
    to prevent reaching ER 22 too soon.
    
    It is best to leave this trick until later playthroughs where you earn at least
    200-250 jewels per quest. You can complete the quest only 4-5 times in an hour.
    If the jewel reward per quest is low, you may be better off using the Lurk/Move
    Silently Trick with level 0 Covert skill, which you can earn over 1000 jewels
    in an hour.
    
    There is a small trick to speed things up a little if you did not know.
    When you go to Gato's Village from outside of Valhalland, you are stopped at
    Shiverland. If you immediately exit Shiverland back to the world map, you can
    select Gato's Village again and it will now bring you there directly, saving
    you a trip running through the Shiverland.

          C. Battle-Related Tricks                                        [RS930]
      ================================
    
    
        Pyrix Trick                                                       [RS931]
      ===============
    
    This is not really a battle trick. It is more of a trick that lets you learn
    many powerful techs early in the game, but I am putting it under this category
    anyway.
    
    The Pyrix trick refers to the exploit of fighting Pyrix again and again to
    glimmer techs at early ER. You may perform this trick as soon as you are free
    to roam the world. To start the trick, visit Avi on Mt. Scurve to trigger the
    quest The Ignigarde (Quest 41) first. Then go to Jelton and complete Monster of
    Mt. Tomae (Quest 23) to get access to Pyrix.
    
    Basically, you can start a fight with Pyrix. Then use regular attacks to spark
    techs. You do not need to worry about healing and you can just let Pyrix kill
    off your characters one by one. By the time all your characters are killed,
    they should have sparked some techs. You do not get a game over from losing to
    Pyrix. You will just be sent off to right outside his chamber. Go back in and
    repeat the process. When your characters are low on LP, return to town to
    recover and you are good to go again. Losing to Pyrix does not increase your
    ER, so you can do it as many times as you want.
    
    Although Pyrix is good for sparking most techs, he can only spark a few level 5
    techs if you are lucky. To increase the chance of sparking high level techs,
    you may try using specific techs according to the "Rank 4/5 Tech Tree List"
    in Ramtieger's Game System FAQ, or increasing your weapon skills and switching
    weapon to the mode of the tech you want to spark. However, the chance is still
    small. I would not recommend trying to spark everything from him.
    
    Note that you must have the quest The Ignigarde (Quest 41) activated before
    you can fight Pyrix over and over again. And once you have given the Ice Sword
    (Quest 42) to him, you will not be able to fight him again.
    
    
    
        Phantom Warrior/Chalice Trick                                     [RS932]
      =================================
    
    Chalice, which can be obtained during Return of the Vampires (Quest 30), is a
    powerful item that allows you to fully recover the BP of your whole party
    through its Miracle Water. However, you can only use Miracle Water at most four
    times before it breaks. To recharge it, you will need to take a long tedious
    trip through the Desert and Ruins, not to mention about the returning trip that
    doubles the effort. However, with the Phantom Warrior/Chalice Trick, you no
    longer need to worry about breaking the Chalice.
    
    Phantom Warrior is an Illusion spell, which can be bought in the Temple of
    Amut or Ettinham. It creates a duplicate of the caster, including all the items
    and equipments he/she is wearing. Since the items on the Phantom Warrior are
    copies, you can use them, break them, and deplete their DP without affecting
    the original items. When the Phantom Warrior dies or when the battle ends, the
    character, along with his/her items, will revert to the state right before
    Phantom Warrior was casted, minus the LP and BP used to cast it. Taking
    advantage of it, you can use the duplicate Chalice from a Phantom Warrior
    without touching the original. When the Phantom Warrior is gone, your Chalice
    will still be as good as new.
    
    This trick can also be applied on some rare one-time items, such as the mummy
    potions. This essentially translates to unlimited use of the items.
    
    While you are using Phantom Warrior, keep in mind its limitations. Healing
    spells, healing items, and Miracle Water do not work on the Phantom Warrior.
    However, the healing from Phoenix Arrow works though.
    
    
    
        Hasten Time Trick                                                 [RS933]
      =====================
    
    The Hasten Time Trick is a setup and strategy that allows your party to go
    turns after turns without giving the enemies any chance to act. It can let you
    defeat the most powerful enemy in the game, namely 10-Fatestone Saruin, without
    too much effort. I came up with this trick and first posted it on GameFAQs
    message board on Dec 10, 2005. Since then, it has been reposted a number of
    times as requested. Now I decide to put it here and share with anyone who is
    reading my FAQ.
    
    On some Japanese web-sites, there were similar tactics of chaining Hasten Time.
    However, Hasten Time (and Overdrive as well) is far more "broken" in the
    Japanese version that the minor details discussed here wouldn't even be needed
    to make the trick work. In the Japanese version, characters would recover BP at
    the beginning of the free turn generated by Overdrive or Hasten Time, whereas
    no BP regen applies during that turn in the US version, making it a lot harder
    to chain Hasten Time.
    
    Anyway, the following is the complete original text of the Hasten Time Trick.
    
    
        Disclaimer: I will not be held responsible for if the knowledge and/or the
        use of the tactics given below in any way affects your enjoyment of the
        game. Read on at your own discretion.
    
        First of all, I would like to say that the method discussed below is NOT
        cheating. It is merely exploiting the most broken tricks/spells/items and
        piecing them together. I don't mind you say it is cheap (because it is
        indeed), but it can get the job done (with no honor).
    
        This method is inspired from the cheapest trick in RS2, which you can kill
        the final boss without letting it act even once. The general idea is to
        chain the fusion spell "Hasten Time" such that the enemy has no way to
        act until it's dead. In the following, I will discuss how one can chain
        "Hasten Time" almost indefinitely (in fact, with a little twisting, the
        chain can go on forever).
    
        Ingredients:
            High LP characters x5 (50% starting BP is a plus, regen doesn't matter)
            Holy Chalice
            Mummy Tonic (from Oh! Mummy Quest)
            Mummy Elixir (chest in level 3 of Quietus, guarded by Scorn)
            Talent Blaster x16
            Blazing Sword
            Marcasite/Reinforced Wing/Mullock(-4/-5DP ones)
    
        Setup:
            Time Mage x4
              Class:       Level 4 Rosalian Mage/Imperial Scholar with magic crown*
              Syn. Spell:  Hasten Time
              Spells:      Various attack spells
              Weapons:     Talent Blaster x4
            Phantom Mage x1
              Class:       Level 4 Imperial Scholar with magic crown
              Syn. Spell:  Phantom Warrior (Phantom Warrior+Freeze Time)
              Spells:      Bird of Fire
              Weapons:     Chalice, Blazing Sword**, Mummy Tonic, Mummy Elixir
              Other Skill: Level 3+ Foil
    
        *  Magic crown refers to the LP reduction bonus your char gets when the
           char has at least 10 spells and the number of weapon techs is 10% or
           less than the number of spells.
        ** Temper the Blazing Sword with Marcasite, Reinforced Wing, or
           Mullock (-4/-5DP)
    
        The basic idea is to chain Hasten Time by having the next Time Mage cast
        Hasten Time again at the end of the turn. Since BP regen does not apply
        in the turns generated by Hasten Time, we have to rely on Chalice (Miracle
        Water) to provide the necessary BP. Normally the Chalice can only be used
        4 times; however, we can make use of the Phantom Warrior/Chalice trick to
        use it as many times as we want. Casting Phantom Warrior (PW) will make a
        duplicate of your character along with all his/her items. When the PW is
        gone, your character will revert to the status right after it casted PW.
        That means you can use any one-use items and break the Chalice by using
        it 4 times as a PW, but to have them back when you revert from the PW.
        So how do we kick out the PW whenever we want? Simple, LP-kill it! As a
        Level 4 Imperial Scholar with magic crown and level 3 Foil, channeling
        Bird of Fire with a -3DP Blazing Sword costs 4LP. Typically, doing it four
        times will LP-kill any char with 16LP or less. Note that with the above
        skill setup, Hasten Time and Phantom Warrior cost y1 LP per cast. The mummy
        potions are used to replenish LP.
    
        In the following, I'm going to show the general flow of the battle. I'm
        assuming each char has 52 max BP and 16LP. T.Mage A,B,C and P.Mage have
        40% starting BP and T.Mage D has 50% starting BP. Phantom Warrior costs
        7BP, Hasten Time costs 26BP, Water Blasts costs 4BP, and Bird of Fire
        (channeled) costs 9BP and 4LP. The numbers in the parenthesis indicates
        the change of BP in that turn. The characters act in the order as shown.
    
        Turn 1:
            T.Mage A: Talent Blaster on T.Mage B (20->20)
            T.Mage B: Talent Blaster on P.Mage (20->52)
            T.Mage C: Water Blast (20->16)
            P.Mage  : Phantom Warrior (20->52->45)
            T.Mage D: Hasten Time (26->0)
        Turn 2:
            T.Mage A: Water Blast (20->16->52)
            T.Mage C: Water Blast (16->12->52)
            T.Mage D: - (0->52)
            P.Mage  : Miracle Water (Chalice DP: 10->7)
            T.Mage B: Hasten Time (52->26)
        Turn 3:
            T.Mage A: Water Blast (52->48)
            T.Mage B: Water Blast (26->22)
            T.Mage D: Water Blast (52->48)
            P.Mage  : Bird of Fire (45->36, LP: 16->12)
            T.Mage C: Hasten Time (52->26)
        Turn 4:
            T.Mage A: Water Blast (48->44)
            T.Mage B: Water Blast (22->18)
            T.Mage C: Water Blast (26->22)
            P.Mage  : Bird of Fire (36->27, LP: 12->8)
            T.Mage D: Hasten Time (48->22)
        Turn 5:
            T.Mage B: Water Blast (18->14->52)
            T.Mage C: Water Blast (22->18->52)
            T.Mage D: Water Blast (22->18->52)
            P.Mage  : Miracle Water (Chalice DP: 7->4)
            T.Mage A: Hasten Time (44->52->26)
    
        Now do you see the pattern? Basically, Chalice should be used once every
        3 turns and the Chalice can be used 4 times. So for each cast of Phantom
        Warrior, there are 12 turns. Subtracting 1 turn for casting PW and 4 turns
        of using Chalice, the P.Mage has 7 turns to use Mummy Potions and LP-kill
        itself. Now I will show the general flow of LP-killing the P.Mage and
        recasting it.
    
        Turn 11:
            T.Mage B: Water Blast (18->14->52)
            T.Mage C: Water Blast (22->18->52)
            T.Mage D: Water Blast (22->18->52)
            P.Mage  : Miracle Water (Chalice DP: 1->0)
            T.Mage A: Hasten Time (44->52->26)
        Turn 12:
            T.Mage A: Water Blast (26->22)
            T.Mage C: Water Blast (52->48)
            T.Mage D: Water Blast (52->48)
            P.Mage  : Bird of Fire (LP: 4->0)
            T.Mage B: Hasten Time (52->26)
        Turn 13:
            T.Mage A: Talent Blaster on P.Mage (22->22)
            T.Mage B: Water Blast (26->22)
            T.Mage D: Water Blast (48->44)
            P.Mage  : Phantom Warrior (45->52->45)
            T.Mage C: Hasten Time (48->22)
        Turn 14:
            T.Mage A: Water Blast (22->18->52)
            T.Mage B: Water Blast (22->18->52)
            T.Mage C: Water Blast (22->18->52)
            P.Mage  : Miracle Water (Chalice DP: 10->7)
            T.Mage D: Hasten Time (44->52->26)
    
        Note that in Turn 13, I use a Talent Blaster on the P.Mage before he/she
        casts PW. This is to ensure that the P.Mage will have enough BP to LP-kill
        him/herself because you will have no way to regen his/her BP after PW is
        active (unless you let the time flows again and so Saruin can kick your
        butt in one turn). If the P.Mage cannot LP-kill him/herself because of the
        lack of BP, the chain will definitely falls apart. Of course, you don't
        have to use a Talent Blaster every time if you know you will still have
        enough BP to LP-kill after casting PW.
    
        More Notes:
        1. Mummy Tonic/Elixir recovers half of the LP lost for a character, rounded
           down. So you should use it on a char that has lost the most LP.
        2. In this setup, the limiting resource is the Talent Blasters and the LP
           of the P.Mage.
        3. Make sure you have the P.Mage go last (right before the Hasten Time) at
           the turn you LP-killing it. Otherwise, it may wake up with 0 BP the next
           turn instead of 45. This will delay the P.Mage from casting PW by one
           turn.
        4. You always use Chalice when there is only one T.Mage with enough BP to
           cast Hasten Time. If you delay the Chalice to next turn, no one will
           have enough BP to allow you to select Hasten Time.
        5. This setup will easily let you chain 100-200 turns even if each cast of
           Hasten Time/Phantom Warrior always costs 1LP.
        6. Obviously you can use some other spells instead of Water Blast. You may
           experiment with spells to form combos like Demon and Phantom (such as
           Bird of Fire->Water Blast->Star Beam->Water Blast).
        7. To chain indefinitely, you may setup a second Phantom Mage and give
           him/her one Mummy Potion and some Talent Blasters (and a Blazing Sword
           or some way to LP-kill him/her). This P.Mage will be responsible for
           using Talent Blaster on the first P.Mage and recover his/her LP. It is
           possible to chain forever with this twist, but I'm not giving the exact
           details here.
        8. If you are using this method against Saruin, beware that when he changes
           to second form, that turn is free to act for all. So don't blame me if
           he screws you over in that single turn. (That's what he did to me the
           first time I tried this method... he used Mind's Shadow and then Deus Ex
           Machina 2 times. I was totally screwed...)
    
        Final Note:
        I'm merely sharing this method and by no means am I encouraging you to use
        this method in defeating Saruin (or any boss) since it definitely takes
        away the challenge and the fun. I defeated 10-Fatestone Saruin with this
        method, but I wouldn't even want to brag about it. There is no pride and
        honor defeating anything with this cheap tactics. I would only take pride
        in piecing tricks together to devise this method, but not in this method
        itself. And lastly, thank you for your time in reading this.

          Questions and Answers                                           [RSA02]
      =============================
    
    
    1. How do I get into Crystal Palace?                                  [QA001]
       - You have to have Albert in your party before the guards would let you in.
    
    2. Can I complete Temple Tours?                                       [QA002]
       - No. Some topics in the quest notes are there to give you information.
         Temple Tours, Finding the Fatestones, and Mysteries of Ecology cannot
         be completed.
    
    3. Which main characters can get a costume change?                    [QA003]
       - Only Albert and Gray can get a costume change and they must be the
         main characters to get it. Gray gets the costume change when you
         complete Voice of the Blade (Quest 4). Albert gets it when you obtain
         Mirsa's Armor during the Dragon Knight (Quest 49).
    
    4. How do I get Galahad to buy the Ice Sword?                         [QA004]
       - You must have at least 20,000G on your hand before the shopkeeper
         will tell you the sword was bought. Then the lady outside the shop
         will tell you Galahad bought it.
    
    5. What is the Pyrix trick?                                           [QA005]
       - Refer "Pyrix Trick" in section VIII. Tricks and Exploitations.
    
    6. Does losing to Pyrix increase my ER?                               [QA006]
       - No.
    
    7. What is the Gold Dragon trick?                                     [QA007]
       - Refer to "Gold Dragon Trick" in section VIII. Tricks and Exploitations.
    
    8. How do I solve the puzzle on Abandoned Keep 3F?                    [QA008]
       - Refer to the section "About the Puzzle in Abandoned Keep..." under
         Pride of the Knights (Quest 14).
    
    9. How do I get the Chalice?                                          [QA009]
       - Activate Return of the Vampires (Quest 30). Before you complete the
         quest, talk to the two man in North Estamir pub and then search the
         tombs in the catacombs in Estamir Tunnels.
    
    10. How do I recharge the Chalice?                                    [QA010]
        - You can recharge it at the Temple of Nisa under Kaklim Desert.
          It is the same place where you get the fatestone Topaz.
    
    11. How do I get to the Netherworld before ER 20?                     [QA011]
        - There are two ways:
          a. Kill Pyrix before you bring him the Ice Sword.
          b. If you completed Plant Ecology in a previous playthrough, you can
             trigger and kill Pyrocanis at ER 18+ during Plant Ecology in the
             current playthrough.
    
    12. What is carried over to the new game plus?                        [QA012]
        - Refer to the section "About New Game Plus..." under Face Saruin
          (Quest 57).
    
    13. How do I trigger the evil form of an elemental lord?              [QA013]
        - Refer to the section "Triggering the Possessed Form of the Elemental
          Lords..." under Aquatic Ecology (Quest 43).
    
    14. What is the Lurk/Move Silently trick?                             [QA014]
        - One may spam the proficiencies Lurk and Move Silently to earn jewels.
          This is especially useful in early game to get enough jewels to
          get your party to at least class level 2. To perform this trick
          effectively, your party should have level 0 Covert skill. Equip your
          character with Lurk and Move Silently. Then go to a dungeon to spam
          these proficiencies. You will earn one jewel each time you use a
          proficiency. With level 0 Covert skill, Lurk and Move Silently take
          about 4 seconds to wear off. If your Covert skill is higher, you may
          leave the area to dispel the effect manually.
    
          When you run out of proficiency points, go back to a town, unequip
          and re-equip a proficency to replenish the proficiency points.
          The best places to perform this trick include Geckling Cave and
          Estamir Tunnels where you can quickly step back to town to replenish
          your proficiency points. If you are patient, you can earn a thousand
          jewels in about an hour.
    
    15. Can I use Aldora's true body?                                     [QA015]
        - No, never, unless you cheat or hack your way to get it. Some other
          sources or FAQs indicate that you can use Aldora's body after you
          fully unlocked Aldora in a previous playthrough, but that is not true.
          No matter who you unlocked (the true Darque or Aldora) during Who Am I?
          (Quest 52), Darque will always revert back to his amnesia form when
          you start a New Game Plus.
    
    16. Can I learn Sorcery and Necromancy spells?                        [QA016]
        - No. There is no way to learn Sorcery and Necromancy spells.
          Red Mage is the only playable character with access to those spells.
    
    17. How can I purchase skills individually?                           [QA017]
        - Get a character to class level 3 and you will be able to train
          skills individually. Note that it is cheaper to train a set of
          skills than to train those skills individually.
    
    18. How do I dismiss the Minstrel?                                    [QA018]
        - He will leave your party automatically when you enter a pub.
          If he has just joined you, he will not leave when you return to the
          same pub without leaving the town.
    
    19. How can I use the Minstrel in the final battle?                   [QA019]
        - The Minstrel needs to leave your party before you can trigger the
          ending quests. And during the time between you trigger and complete
          the ending quest, the Minstrel will not join you. To be able to
          recruit back the Minstrel after the ending quest, you must NOT complete
          the Trials of Elore. Instead, complete any of the other two ending
          quests--Auldburg or The Netherworld. After you finish one of these two
          ending quests, you will be able to recruit the Minstrel again.
    
    20. The Minstrel has disappeared, how do I dismiss a character?       [QA020]
        - The best way is probably to LP-kill the character you want to
          dismiss. A second way is to sacrifice to Death; however, note that
          Death always takes the second character in line.
    
    21. How do I dismiss Brau and Sylvan?                                 [QA021]
        - Brau and Sylvan will leave the party permanently after Eule Gives
          a Hoot (Quest 25). If you cannot wait, they can be dismissed through
          LP death. LP-killing Brau and Sylvan will not affect the scenes in
          Eule Gives a Hoot.
    
    22. What happens to a character when he or she is LP-killed?          [QA022]
        - When the LP of a character is depleted, he or she will be forced to
          leave your party. It has the same effect as dismissing the character
          through the Minstrel. If the character is re-recruitable, he or she
          will appear in his or her usual resting place(s) after some time;
          otherwise, you will never see that character again.
    
    23. Will a dismissed character keep the same stats/equipments?        [QA023]
        - Yes. A character will have the same equipments as when he or she is
          dismissed or LP-killed. The stats will be either the same or better,
          depending on whether your party has leveled quite a bit before you
          recruit the character back. Of course, this applies only to characters
          that are re-recruitable.
    
    24. Is there a soft-reset function in this game?                      [QA024]
        - Yes. The button combination is L1+R1+START+SELECT. Including L2 and R2
          in the combination does not work.
    
    25. How do I use a Treasure Map?                                      [QA025]
        - First of all, you need the Find Treasure and Excavate proficiencies
          for treasure hunting. When you look at the Treasure Map in the Items
          menu, the location is indicated under Item Details on the lower left
          of the screen. Sometimes the location is composed of multiple levels
          or areas. If you have Find Treasures equipped and when you are at the
          same level where the treasure is located, you will see a blue arrow
          on your compass. It points to the exact location of the treasure.
          Follow the arrow until you get a prompt telling you the treasure is
          nearby. Then use Find Treasure and Excavate to dig it up.
    
    26. What are the exclaimation points that I can't do anything to?     [QA026]
        - If you see the exclaimation points but no action prompt appears, that
          means you do not have the appropriate "Find" proficiencies equipped.
          Usually they are chests, herbs, or ores. You will need Find Chests,
          Find Herbs, or Find Ores. At a few certain places, it can also be a
          "trap" that has a hidden passage behind and you will need Find Traps.
    
    27. What weapons do shields work with?                                [QA027]
        - Shields have a chance to activate only in the turn you are using
          a one-handed weapon, namely Foil, Short Sword, Long Sword, Scimitar,
          Hand Axe, and Club. Shields cannot activate when you are using any
          other weapons, Martial Arts, or spells. Shields do not work with the
          Defense action either.

        The first turn he casts Phantom Warrior. Then the second turn

        three times and casts revives twice on his comrades. Then the

    35. What are the two ways to open up Faerie's Grove?                  [TR035]
    
    36. Name an attack that a player can possibly have access to          [TR036]
        (i.e. a player can use it in a battle) and that it can inflict darkness.
    
    37. Name two attacks, other than sparkable techs, that a player       [TR037]
        can possibly have access to and that they may inflict paralysis.
    
    38. Suppose Hawke is a level 5 Imperial Scholar. He and his           [TR038]
        comrades are fighting Scorn in a battle. In the first turn,
        Scorn is doing minimal damage to Hawke's comrades. Then Hawke
        uses Cosmic Tide and decreases Scorn's INT. In the second turn,
        Scorn is doing no damage to Hawke's comrades. In the same turn
        Hawke casts Snowstorm and inflicts some damage on Scorn. In the
        third turn, Hawke decides to use Aegis on himself. The battle
        then goes on for awhile. When the battle is finally over, Hawke

        impossible.
    
    39. Now again with the same question, but instead of Imperial         [TR039]
        Scholar, Hawke is now a Rosalian Mage. Suppose Hawke is a level 5
        Rosalian Mage. He and his comrades are fighting Scorn in a battle.
        In the first turn, Scorn is doing minimal damage to Hawke's comrades.
        Then Hawke uses Cosmic Tide and decreases Scorn's INT. In the second
        turn, Scorn is doing no damage to Hawke's comrades. In the same turn
        Hawke casts Snowstorm and inflicts some damage on Scorn. In the
        third turn, Hawke decides to use Aegis on himself. The battle then
        goes on for awhile. When the battle is finally over, Hawke looks at
        himself and sees that he has not lost any LP in this battle.
        Question: Is this scenario possible? If not, list exactly what is
        impossible. There may be more than one impossible things.

          Trivia Answers                                                  [RSB02]
      ======================
    
    
    1. Amethyst                                                           [TR001]
    
    2. Diamond                                                            [TR002]
    
    3. Twelve times                                                       [TR003]
    
    4. The sky turned brown.                                              [TR004]
    
    5. Deus Ex Machina, Abyss, Horn of Death, and more...                 [TR005]
    
    6. Tidal Wave                                                         [TR006]
    
    7. 50% of the LP lost rounded down.                                   [TR007]
       The formula is floor((max_LP - current_LP) / 2)
    
    8. Vampire's Den                                                      [TR008]
    
    9. Beast type monsters                                                [TR009]
    
    10. Tapping her shoe just like Aisha. It is possible to see this      [TR010]
        when you are following her down the sewers during Stolen Nymphs.
    
    11. Jamil, Gray, and Claudia                                          [TR011]
    
    12. ER 20 (trigger the evil ending quest and get access to            [TR012]
        Frosthold Fortress for the last fatestone Obsidian Sword.)
    
    13. ER 18 for the last fatestone Ruby. You can get Obsidian Sword     [TR013]
        as soon as you have access to Netherworld (by killing Pyrix/Pyrocanis).
    
    14. Ruby. Its ER range is 18-22 (5 ERs). Aquamarine has a longer      [TR014]
        range since you can get it way before the quest can be activated
        with Neidhart. The condition about Unlucky Woman is needed;
        otherwise, Diamond could have the shortest range in a playthru
        that you need to talk to her 4-5 more times to get the Diamond.
        (It's just a special case that I was trying to rule out there.)
    
    15. DP Cost: 3 (Can be calculated out using the rules from the        [TR015]
        section "Calculating DP/LP Cost" under Miscellaneous Topics.)
    
    16. Ruby, Blue Elf, Raincloud Armlet, and items tempered with         [TR016]
        Stonefish Scales
    
    17. Remember Silver would say "I'm the boss and you are the           [TR017]
        bossee, see? If you get this straight, I don't mind joining ya."
        Now you know the answer.
    
    18. Twinmoon Temple                                                   [TR018]
    
    19. Crystal City, Melvir, Loban, and Tarmitta                         [TR019]
    
    20. All spells have the same damage. They will all miss because       [TR020]
        Jewel Beast is immune to magic.
    
    21. Yes. A Phantom Warrior cannot cast any fusion spell. I put in     [TR021]
        the Overdrive, artful slash, revive and stuff just to create
        confusion, but they are perfectly fine and can be done if Hawke is
        not in PW. As for the last sentence, it applies to PW. So the only
        place that doesn't connect is between the second and third sentences.
    
    22. Four times                                                        [TR022]
    
    23. Vandalize                                                         [TR023]
    
    24. 9999                                                              [TR024]
    
    25. Four Seasons and Slash                                            [TR025]
    
    26. Level 4                                                           [TR026]
    
    27. South Cave (Stage 2), Elizabeth Palace                            [TR027]
    
    28. Auldburg                                                          [TR028]
    
    29. Pumpkin. When Wuhan is talking with her daughter in the           [TR029]
        ending, he called her "Pumpkin".
    
    30. Twelve                                                            [TR030]
    
    31. She will have 36 BP. At lvl 5 hydrology, Overdrive costs 15BP,    [TR031]
        Healing Water costs 0BP, and Waterblast costs 3BP. Claudia at
        50+ max BP has +7 regen. So the calculations go like this:
        50-15-0-0-0-3-3+7 = 36
    
    32. ER 3 during An Unlucky Woman.                                     [TR032]
    
    33. Deepfish                                                          [TR033]
    
    34. Darkness                                                          [TR034]
    
    35. Obtain the Amethyst (complete Amethyst of Vision) or lose to      [TR035]
        the King of the Jungle during Oh, Mummy!
    
    36. Black Cloud (Red Mage)                                            [TR036]
    
    37. Bind to Earth (Cosmology), Flame Whip (summon Pyrix through       [TR037]
        Axe of Kings), and Paralyzing Claw (Brau's unique tech)
    
    38. It is possible to have Cosmic Tide that decreases INT with the    [TR038]
        help of fusion. So the only impossible thing there is about Aegis.
        You can channel Aegis, but no matter what you do, Aegis in this
        scenario will cost at least 1LP. So Hawke cannot finish the scenario
        without losing any LP.
    
    39. First, Hawke will lose LP casting Snowstorm (channeling or not)   [TR039]
        and Cosmic Tide. Aegis can be channeled through Serpent Staff
        without losing LP though. Second, he cannot reduce Scorn's INT
        because Rosalian Mage's fusion does not give stats modifier.
    
    40. No. If you do not kill Jewel Beast, you will see a cut-scene      [TR040]
        of it moving along the New Road when you enter Quietus, but you
        never see it outside of Frontier.
    
    41. Only once in Silver's Cave                                        [TR041]
    
    42. Four. The one near the entrance of Cave D requires 2 times        [TR042]
        (entering and exiting) and there are two jump points in Cave E,
        which require one jump each.
    
    43. Four                                                              [TR043]
    
    44. There are 15 fatestone altars: Aquamarine, Topaz, Moonstone,      [TR044]
        Black Diamond, Opal, and 10 altars in Quietus' Fatestone Chamber.
    
    45. Ten times. An Unlucky Woman - Scorn. Ailing Emperor, Twinmoon     [TR045]
        Temple - Scorn. Pirate Invasion, Saruin's Underground Temple - Scorn.
        Underwater Temple - Strife. The Dragon Knight - Spite. Frosthold
        Fortress - Spite. Quietus 1F - Spite. Quietus 2F - Strife. Quietus
        3F - Scorn. Quietus 4F - ones that you fought previously in Quietus.
        (Thanks killerb255 for the complete list.)
    
    46. One battle for the Diamond. You can skip Ailing Emperor and       [TR046]
        come back at a rather late ER to get the moonstone. Scorn won't
        show up. And for Black Diamond and Obsidian Sword, after you have
        obtained the fatestone, equip it on a character and then LP-kill that
        character before leaving Underwater Temple or Frosthold Fortress.
        The Minions will not show up if you are not carrying the Black Diamond
        or the Obsidian Sword. When you are outside, recruit back the
        LP-killed characters to retrieve the fatestones. (Thanks vivisimonvi
        for testing the LP-kill method to avoid the Minions.)
    
    47. You get a Game Over if you get hit by the mist coming out of      [TR047]
        the statues in Aquamarine Cave. You will also get a Game Over if
        you answer it wrong twice when Monica asks you "Who sent you?"
        during Neville's Request.
    
    48. Albert and Sif.                                                   [TR048]
    
    49. Her reactions will change depending on whether she has            [TR049]
        followed Neidhart to Rosalia before Neidhart talks to Nizam.
        If she had went to Rosalia, then when Neidhart poses the question
        she will have a look of anticipation, and disappointment when
        Nizam turns it down. If she had not been to Rosalia before, it would
        be the other way round -- a look of disappointment when Neidhart
        proposes to bring her to Rosalia, and a look of relief when Nizam
        turns it down. (Thanks Raywing (Maipawa) for the answer.)
    
    50. Complete the ecology quest for Adyllis and go back to visit.      [TR050]
        You will see the Minstrel singing song to her even after having
        completed the Trials of Elore.
