    ==INTRODUCTION==
    
    Growlanser IV: Return can be considered to be a sub-game for the Growlanser
    series. Upon loading the game, the main title screen gives 5 options which
    can be chosen:
    
    ->GROWLANSER IV: RETURN
    ->Foreboding
    ->SENSHI
    ->Cult Quiz
    ->Staff Credits
    
    The first 3 options are the side stories which round up the unseen events
    which happened before, during and after the main game of Growlanser IV:
    Wayfarer of Time. The Cult Quiz is a section of a 100 questions for fans to
    answer. The Staff Credits is simply the short credits roll listing the
    personnel involved in the creation of the game.
    
    This event guide is created to provide a little help to those who are
    playing the game or to serve as a little reference to those who don't
    intend to play the game but wishes to know briefly what the contents of
    the game are about. Considering how it's becoming less and less likely for
    the older Growlansers to get released in the US, I hope that together with
    the great and informational Growlanser guides and translations written by
    other FAQ writers here on Gamefaqs, this guide will help more people get the
    correct facts regarding the events, timeline and connection between various
    games of the series.
    
    Even though this is a summarized event guide, please expect full spoilers. In
    any case, it is for that purpose of letting the readers know what's going on
    that I created this short guide. In situations where I deem the usage of
    Japanese characters necessary, I will include them. Take note that the
    events for the game is laid out in a flowchart manner.

    ==Growlanser IV: Return==                                              [RT01]
    
    Picking Growlanser IV: Return at the main title screen brings you to the
    title screen of this side story. This can be considered the main side story
    on the entire disc because it shows the events which happened between
    Crevaniel's disappearance and re-appearance at the end of GIV: Wayfarer of
    Time. This is also the section which will solve the rumors regarding the
    connection between Growlanser III and Growlanser IV. 
    
    ->New game: starts a new game
    ->Load: Load a save data
    ->Rename: Rename Crevaniel(default)
    ->Appendix
      ->CG attainment rate: this lets you view the various graphics you've
        obtained throughout the entire side-story
      ->Scenario attainment rate: this lets you view the list of scenario titles
        you've obtained throughout the entire side-story. Each time you get a
        title, it will show up in one of the slots. The full list is as below.

    --NEW GAME--
    
    As mentioned earlier, this side-story allows you to use Crevaniel and see
    things from his point of view. When you choose to start a new game, remember
    to always save in between, especially when it comes to choosing options.
    That is because it is easy to end up with a game over screen by one wrong
    option. However, it is also through the options choosing that the story
    splits in various paths, thus allowing you get the various scenario titles.
    However, there is only ONE true route which will get you through to the end
    of the story.
    
    Before we carry on, please try and get used to some of the terms I'm gonna
    use for the flowchart:
    
    I)OPTIONS: where the game requires you to pick from a list of choices.
    
    II)Paths 1A, B, C, D etc: Paths the various choices picked may bring you to.
    Take note that I came up with these path references to enable the readers to
    have an easier time going through the flowchart because there's a lot of
    branching for the first sections. You'll have to make use of the CTRL+F to
    search for the different paths, but I trust it should not be difficult.
    
    III)Ending 1, 2, 3 etc: Endings the various choices picked may bring you to.
    
    IV)In choices where no specific indications/explanations are listed, that
    means it's fine to pick any choice since there won't be much significant
    changes.
    
    Now, you can save ANYTIME by pressing the TRIANGLE button and choose to save,
    load or return to the main title screen. If everything's fine, let's begin.
    
    
    PART 1: 精霊 (Spirits)
    **********************
    
    -->>Crevaniel pressed switch for magic dispersing device on Mount Izenbant
        and was sent off to a world filled with darkness.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Confirm the situation
             (2)See whether I am still alive
             (3)Think about what happened to magic
    
    -->>A young woman appeared to him from amidst the vacuum space and told him
        they are in the past.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Did I traveled back to the past?
             (2)Did you come from the future?
    
    -->>The woman told Crevaniel that they are in the Space-time Interval and
        that if he doesn't wish to die as yet, she can help him.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)I wish to die
             (2)I don't wish to die
    
    (1) gets you the Game over screen and the "Annihilated" scenario title.
    (2) will let you continue the game.
    
    -->>The woman sent Crevaniel away from the Space-time Interval and when he
        regained his senses, he found himself on a deserted plain. He looked up
        to the skies and saw an "angel" flying to the east.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Chase after him -->Brings you to PATH A
             (2)Turn his back to the sight -->Brings you to PATH B
    
    
                                    ******
                                   [PATH A]
                                    ******
    -->>Crevaniel chased after the angel for approximately 10 minutes but
        eventually lost sight of him. He looked around, spotted a
        village(Taoberia) nearby and decided to enter it.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Talk to a villager
                --The girl asked Crevaniel where he came from:
                  (1)Marculey
                  (2)A foreign country
                  (3)Don't answer
             (2)Explore around the village
             (3)Go to the inn
    
    -->>Inside the inn, Crevaniel asked for a room. The money he had with him was
        not acceptable and so he sold a magic gem for 100 Elm. The innkeeper told
        him that they refer the gem not as magic gem but as spirit gem. With
        that, Crevaniel got a room and during night time, he started thinking
        about something.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)About the woman at the Space-Time Interval
                --How painful it is to spend infinity alone in the Interval:
                  (1)It's none of my business anyway
                  (2)If possible, I'd like to save her
                  (3)If there's no way to save her, then that can't be helped
             (2)Where exactly is this world
             (3)What am I going to do from now on
    
    -->>The next day, Crevaniel left the inn after affirming his location and the
        map of the world he's in. He attempted to leave the village but was held
        back. It was a young girl.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Who are you? -->Brings you to PATH 1A
             (2)Ignore her
                --The girl warned Crevaniel that if he's really out to destroy
                  the world, she's going to kill him. Crevaniel couldn't
                  understand what exactly was the girl talking about:
                  (1)Listen to her -->Brings you to PATH 1A
                  (2)Try it if you can -->You will have the girl(Monica) killing
                     Crevaniel. You get the game over screen as well as the
                     "Knife through the heart" scenario title.
    
    
                                    *******
                                   [PATH 1A]
                                    *******
    -->>The girl introduced herself as Monica and told Crevaniel that his
        existence in the world is creating the same distortional effect as
        Zion. She explained that the world returned back to normal after Zion
        was defeated, but the same distortion occurred again and that is due
        to Crevaniel coming to this world. She then asked for him to follow her
        to Port Delfini. Crevaniel agreed. Halfway through, Monica told him
        that she's a dark spirit messenger, and being interested in the wings
        look-alike object on her back, Crevaniel wanted to ask Monica about them.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Just ask directly
             (2)I guess...better not
    
    -->>Monica told Crevaniel that the angels he mentioned are actually
        Featherians and that she's half-human, half featherian and that's why
        her wings cannot grow. They continued the journey and once again,
        Monica stopped. After some mumblings as if she was talking to someone
        else, she ran off. Crevaniel caught up with her and sensed a chilly
        existence. He saw Monica persuading "something" to go and wait until
        it's time to be reborn. At the same time, the chilling feeling which
        Crevaniel felt earlier was gone. Monica explained to Crevaniel that
        as a Dark spirit messenger, her main mission is to guide lost souls to
        return to the reincarnating cycle. She also introduced her special
        helper named Rummy, though Crevaniel could not see anything.
        With that the two finally made their way to Delfini and after entering
        the town, Monica told Crevaniel to follow her into the lighthouse and
        both took the Transgate to a place named Dark Mountain, where the Dark
        spirit messengers reside. After a long trip underground with Monica as
        the guide, both reached the desired destination. Monica led Crevaniel to
        meet with a man in black. She addressed him as "Dark Lord" and proceeded
        to kneel down.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Do the same as Monica and kneel down
             (2)Remain standing
    
    -->>After some explanations, Crevaniel got to know that they intended to use
        the Space-Time Summoning Technique to send him back to where he came
        from. For that purpose, they need dark and wind spirit messengers as
        well as the Power Stone. Monica requested for Crevaniel to accompany her
        to gather the necessary items and the first place they traveled to was
        Biblostock. After meeting with the Lord named Granford who told Monica
        that the ground spirits told him that Huey has entered the empire around
        10 days ago, both left the mansion.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Who is Huey?
             (2)What is it about the Roland Kingdom?
             (3)What's the purpose in meeting the ruler of Biblostock?
    
    -->>Wanting to get the Power Stone, Monica and Crevaniel needed to travel to
        Roland Kingdom. In order to reach the Roland Kingdom, they had to pass
        through the Regen tunnel. Upon entering, Monica mentioned something of
        "So this was what Slayn saw..." and after asking for some time, she
        began going around to persuade and guide souls to return to the
        underworld. After a while, she returned and told Crevaniel that she has
        already done all that she was able to.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Pat her head
             (2)Thank her for her hard work
             (3)Let's hurry on
    
    -->>Both moved on but was soon stopped in their tracks when a wolf-like
        monster attacked them.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Fight back -->Brings you to PATH C
             (2)Leave to Monica
                --Monica managed to defeat it but monster
                  reinforcements soon came:
                  (1)Escape -->Refer to (ES) below
                  (2)Join in the fight -->Brings you to PATH C
             (3)Escape -->Refer to (ES) below
    
    (ES): Crevaniel made his escape without Monica but days passed and he was
    unable to find a way out. Finally, fatigue overtook him and he collapsed and
    died. You get the game over screen as well as the "Facing the end inside the
    maze" scenario title.
    
    
                                    ******
                                   [PATH B]
                                    ******
    -->>Crevaniel ignored the angel and continued to walk around. He made his way
        through a forest, past a lake and saw a lone hut which showed no signs of
        anyone living there. He spent 10 days there. On the eleventh day, he got
        up and wondered what he was going to do next.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Fish at the nearby river -->Brings you to PATH 1B
             (2)Stay inside the hut and laze around -->Brings you ENDING 1
             (3)It's time to set off from here -->Brings you to PATH 2B
    
    
                                    *******
                                   [PATH 1B]
                                    *******
    -->>Crevaniel had some difficulties fishing up anything and as he continued
        to make attempts, he heard footsteps approaching. A young girl appeared
        before him and commented that the distortion he created is even worse
        than Zion's. Crevaniel didn't know what the girl was talking about.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Listen to her -->Brings you to PATH 1A
             (2)It's none of my business -->This will have the girl killing
                Crevaniel. You get the game over screen as well as the "Into the
                flowing stream" scenario title.
    
    
                                    ********
                                   [ENDING 1]
                                    ********
    -->>Crevaniel spent some time inside the hut and heard footsteps
        approaching. The young woman from back at the Space-Time Interval
        came looking for him. She introduced herself as "Gloria" and asked him
        to pack up and follow her because certain people called "Spirit
        Messengers" wanted to kill him. Crevaniel then decided to travel
        around the world with her by his side. With that, you get the first
        possible ending(which is of course, not the true ending). The game ends
        and you also get the "Living a traveling life" scenario title.
    
    
                                    *******
                                   [PATH 2B]
                                    *******
    -->>Crevaniel set off from the hut and exited the forest. He came to the
        checkpoint which the guard referred to as "Aggressival border" and was
        locked up because he could not produce a pass necessary for going
        through the checkpoint. Inside the interrogation room, Crevaniel got to
        know that the people refer to magic gems as spirit gems and the beings
        whom he thought to be angels were actually called "Featherians". It was
        then that he knew for certain that he had wounded up in a totally
        different world.
        After some time, an old general entered. Seeing Crevaniel, he mentioned
        something of how even though he didn't know much about spirit messengers,
        he knew that Crevaniel's continual existence will harm the world and
        that he's not going to let that happen. Crevaniel knew not what the man
        was talking about. Bringing out his ring weapon, the old man -who
        referred himself as General Gerhalt- was ready to attack.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Fight back
             (2)Don't move as yet
             (3)Escape
    
    (1) gets Crevaniel fighting with General Gerhalt but was killed. You will
        see the game over screen and obtain the "The aged Commander" scenario
        title.
    (2) gets Crevaniel killed by General Gerhalt. You will see the game over
        screen and obtain the "The aged Commander" scenario title.
    (3) brings you to PATH 3B.
    
    
                                    *******
                                   [PATH 3B]
                                    *******
    -->>Crevaniel managed to escape and he made his way towards the south-east
    direction. A man in green(Huey) approached him, called him a threat and
    started chanting.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Defend
             (2)Defend and counter
             (3)Knowing that someone's gonna get hurt, attempt to slay the man
    
    (1) gets Crevaniel trapped in a wind shield which he could not get out
        of. Soon he found himself running out of breath and everything blacked
        out. You get the game over screen as well as the "Wind Cell" scenario
        title.
    (2) gets the same result as (1)
    (3) will get you ENDING 2
    
                                    ********
                                   [ENDING 2]
                                    ********
    -->>After slaying the man, Crevaniel left the place. A few days later,
        a man(Orpheus) attacked him for the same reason as the previous one. The
        man was very strong but he managed to escape. After a while, he was
        attacked by another man(Vincent) again. Refusing to do nothing and let
        himself be killed, Crevaniel decided to pick up his sword and continue a
        life of fighting back whenever needed. With that you get the 2nd ending
        of the game as well as the "Carnage" scenario title.
    
    
                                    ******

                                    *******
    -->>After some searching, Crevaniel found Monica fighting against the woman
        he first met in the Space-Time Interval. Monica's attacks proved to be
        of no use against the woman and it was only at Crevaniel's appearance
        that the woman vanished without a trace. After some thanks and
        conversations regarding how the woman wanting to kill all who
        interrupt her plans, the two continued their way to Roland kingdom.
        The land was desolate and they found the Roland king at the wrecked
        mining town. After telling them that the Power Stone can be created by
        having around 100 magicians send magical energy into the Time Crystal,
        he gave them a small Time Crystal which was obtained from the mine to
        the north.
        After getting a message that Huey's waiting at Schwartzharze, Monica
        and Crevaniel proceeded to the town. Upon reaching the town, Monica
        sensed something weird and immediately rushed off to the northern part
        of the town. Crevaniel chased after her and spotted an injured man
        at the northern bridge. He told them that he was waiting for Monica when
        he sensed an aura which felt as though Slayn or Zion was approaching. He
        found it strange because the one who caused that dark distortional
        effect(waves) should be with Monica. It was then that an unknown woman
        materialized and assaulted him and against whom his attacks didn't work
        i.e: her existence seemed like an illusion. It was only when the woman
        sensed Crevaniel approaching that she retreated once again. After a
        short exchange of introductions with the man referring to himself as
        Huey, the group returned back to Dark Mountain.
        Back at Dark Mountain, the spirit messengers successfully created the
        Power Stone. After that, a commotion was heard. Crevaniel saw a woman
        whom the entrance guard referred to as a "moon spirit messenger". Upon
        seeing her, Monica and Huey walked over and asked what business she had
        at the Dark Mountain. The woman -named Barbara- said that she was sent
        to investigate the sudden re-surfacing of the dark waves like that of
        Zion's and that she's looking for someone named Gloria. Without a
        doubt, Crevaniel is the cause of the dark distortion effect. However,
        what the group was more interested about was Gloria. Barbara then
        explained to them that Gloria is a woman who had contact with Zion. She
        appeared and disappeared without a trace and was often called "the woman
        with no existence" or "the woman who's not in this world". With Zion
        dead, she must be using Crevaniel to carry out her secret plans.
        Amidst much ponders, the woman appeared again. She was the Gloria
        whom Barbara was talking about.
        Without any delay, they decided to begin the ritual to send Crevaniel
        back to where he came from. Huey, Monica and Barbara began chanting to
        fight against Gloria to buy some time for the ritual to be completed.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Walk over to where the Power Stone is -->Refer to [PS] below
             (2)Try to fight against Gloria -->Brings you to ENDING 4
    
    [PS]: Crevaniel stayed beside the Power Stone. The attacks against Gloria
          by the spirit messengers did not work at all. Gloria started moving
          towards Huey, the latter not noticing it because he was concentrating
          on his chants. Crevaniel tried to rush up to stop her but was too late.
          With that, Huey disappeared and everything ended as a failure. You get
          the game over screen and the "Unable to return" scenario title.

    -->>Crevaniel rushed up to Gloria. As according to his presumption, he was
        able to reach Gloria. He took hold of her and being stopped in her
        assaults, Gloria was shocked but soon tears fell down from her eyes. She
        told Crevaniel that she no longer wants to remain forever in the Space-
        Time Interval. Zion told her he would save her and with him dead, her
        only hope is gone. Crevaniel refused to give in and comforted her that
        that he will return back with her. Words were heard from the moon
        spirit messenger telling Crevaniel to focus all his thoughts on the place
        he wishes to return back to. Marculey was what came to his mind. With
        that, both Crevaniel and Gloria were sent away and the ritual was done.
    
    You'll get the "Space-Time travel" scenario title and Part 2 of the side-
    story will open up.
    
    
    
    Part 2: 時空 (Space-Time)
    *************************
    
    -->>As Crevaniel was sent away from that previous world with Gloria in his
        arms, he felt a strong surge of memories from the woman's past.
        Experiments were carried out on Gloria by orders from Venzern. A huge
        white man-made being which they named as "Gevel" was placed inside her
        body. The experiment was called the "Merging experiment". Even as
        Gloria was unwilling to do it, she had to obey the orders of the
        Venzern, who was the ruler of the Growsians. She recalled how the
        man was not so before, but changed when he was merged with a being
        named Gevas. After testing out the reactions produced by Gevel which
        was placed within Gloria, they proceeded on to the next step by asking
        Gloria to gather Growshu. Even though Gloria was a part eclipse Growsian
        unlike total solar eclipse Growsians such as Venzern and Arieta, the
        experiment proved to be a success because the main goal of obtaining the
        power over Space-Time travel was achieved. Nevertheless, an accident
        happened and when she regained her senses, she found herself trapped
        within the small vacuum called the Space-Time Interval and unable to get
        out no matter how much she tried.
        
        After a long time of searching, she finally found someone in the long
        past, one who exuded the distortion possible for her to exist in the
        world so long as she was within the distortion range. That person was
        Zion, a man who was lonely even though he had a lot of subordinates. Time
        passed and soon the two became lovers. However the time together was not
        long before Zion was killed. She wanted to take revenge on those who
        killed him but without Zion, she's the same as being non-existent. It
        was then that she saw a man inside the Space-Time Interval: Crevaniel.
    
        When Crevaniel woke up, he found himself with Gloria on the shore near a
        sea. The place was Marculey, however it felt a little different. Gloria
        told him that from where he originally came from, it is the Marculey of
        200 years ago. Being not from that world, Gloria was in the danger of
        being sucked back to the Space-Time Interval unless she could find a
        being in that world to merge with. Crevaniel offered his body but Gloria
        jumped into the sea instead. She picked one of the fish and using Gevel's
        ability to infuse other living creatures, she "merged" with the fish and
        her form was like that of a mermaid. Sensing the possibility to send
        Crevaniel back to his time becoming lesser and lesser, she told
        Crevaniel to remember Gloria Melkyus before doing so.
    
    With that, you'll get the "Melkyus" scenario title and open up the last
    section to this side story.

    -->>Class was over. Silvernale looked down from the classroom and saw the
        males training. Her best friend Elice came up to her and teased her for
        watching the Ordineil guy.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Shut her up

    -->>Elice commented on how the girls have been eyeing the Ordineil twins and
        that with them being always at the top in the academy, the two seem

        Crestfer putting on a trouble expression.

    -->Silvernale wondered why the man had such a bizarre expression but not
       being able to do anything, she returned back to the dorm and retired for
       the day. Next morning, she woke up earlier than expected.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Try to sleep in until it's time -->SCENE 2B
             (2)Get up for a short walk -->SCENE 2A

                                    ********
    -->>Silvernale took her usual walk through the soothing morning forest. She
        then heard the sounds of sword training and traced them to a man. At
        first glance, she thought it was the younger brother. It was only when
        the man approached her that she realized it was Crestfer and the two had
        a short and rather unfriendly conversation.
    
        Screen then changed back to the classroom. The students were given a
        short holiday for the next day and Elice approached Silvernale to ask
        her out.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Refuse -->Immediately gives you a game over because the reply
                          ruined the friendship between the two girls and Elice
                          never talked to Silvernale anymore.

                                    ********
    -->>Next day, Elice brought Silvernale to a cafe. Elice asked Silvernale
        what happened to Crestfer with Silvernale spewing a mouthful of drink
        out. Elice explained that a few moments after she saw Silvernale leaving
        the forest, Crestfer came out of the forest as well. Silvernale replied
        that it was just a coincidence that she met him and she intended to take
        a different route the next time. Elice continued to tease her and it was
        only at the appearance of a man that she stopped. Alphonce approached
        them and gave some greetings. Elice invited him to join in but he
        declined because he was going to meet with someone else.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)With your brother? -->SCENE 4A
             (2)With the officer candidates? -->SCENE 4A
             (3)Remain silent -->SCENE 3B

                                   [SCENE 4A]
                                    ********
    -->>Alphonce replied that he's meeting with the Ordineil butler. Not knowing
        what it was about, Silvernale probed further. Alphonce explained that
        Crestfer went back to the mansion a short while ago and that their
        father(the current Lord of Ordineil) has not been in good health and they
        intend to discuss various matters including who's going to take over
        Lord Ordineil's position. With that, Alphonce excused himself.
    
        The next day, Silvernale was given orders to clear up documents in the
        meeting room. She entered and saw someone still in the room. It was a man
        in red. It took only one glance to know that the man was Munzer.B, the
        only Royal Guard in Valcaneer. Munzer asked for her name and Silvernale
        replied accordingly. Munzer requested for Silvernale to tell him from
        whom did she learn her sword skills.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Tell him frankly -->SCENE 5A
             (2)Don't tell him -->SCENE 4B
    
    
                                    ********

                                    ********
    -->>Silvernale told Munzer that she learnt how to wield a sword from her
        mother and that the doujou(dojo) was taken over by her mother's younger
        brother named Hien. Munzer smiled and said that it's no wonder he found
        her sword techniques familiar. He then asked Silvernale what will she
        do if he were to pull out his sword then and attempt to slay her.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Fight back -->SCENE 6A
             (2)Be killed -->SCENE 5B
    
    
                                    ********
                                   [SCENE 6A]
                                    ********
    -->>Munzer told Silvernale that a Royal Guard acts according to the orders
        of the king and that the Royal Guard's sword is the king's sword.
        Silvernale answered that she will not allow herself to be killed without
        a proper reason. Munzer asked her what if she could not agree with an
        order from the king to kill someone. Silvernale replied that she will
        try to change the king's mind. With that, Munzer got up, apologized for
        dragging her into an idle talk and left.
    
        Later at the hallway, Silvernale was called back. The voice surprised
        her and she turned back anxiously only to realize that it was not the
        person she had hope for him to be. Alphonce came up and gave her a
        letter. Silvernale refused to accept it unless she knew who the letter
        came from. Alphonce politely told her not to worry because the letter's
        from an army officer. Silvernale apologized for her reaction and
        Alphonce replied that it must have been very common for a lady such as
        Silvernale to receive many love letters and so the mistake was
        understandable. He then proceeded to walk away. Silvernale called out to
        him, wondering whether she should ask him about Crestfer. In the end
        though, she did not and merely thanked him and Alphonce left.
    
        Back at the dorm, Silvernale opened the letter and got to know that she
        has been picked as a possible candidate to become a Royal Guard.
        Considering how even she was picked, she presumed that it was without
        a doubt that the Ordineil twins must have been chosen as well. Since the
        letter told her to enter the caste without telling anyone about the
        matter, she did as instructed.
    
        At the throne room, Silvernale met Munzer who expressed that her reply
        about fighting back was rare and that it was the correct answer and that
        he expects her to be one of the few ones to remain till the end of the
        exam to becoming a Royal Guard. With that, Silvernale cut off her long
        hair and placed all her focus on the exam. Finally, it came to the
        intellect test.
    
    OPTIONS: **Take note that all answers for this section must be correct, or
               else Silvernale will fail the test and it'll be a game over.

    -->>Silvernale passed the intellect test and up next was the final test
        which was to strike an ancient metal. Only one chance was given and
        Silvernale succeeded. With that, she was given the title of Royal Guard.
    
        Back at the academy, Elice congratulated Silvernale on her success with
        the latter wondering how many others made the mark. Elice told her that
        apart from her, only one more candidate was chosen as a Royal Guard.
        Silvernale was greatly shocked when she heard the the candidate was
        Alphonce and not Crestfer because it was greatly known that Crestfer has
        always been the more outstanding one. Elice told her that Alphonce has
        also been given the position as the next Lord of Ordineil instead of
        Crestfer. After hearing that Crestfer was quitting the academy, she
        rushed to his dorm. Upon seeing him, Silvernale began to cry. After
        comforting her in the forest, Crestfer left without any explanations.
    
    
                                    *******

                                    *******
    -->Back at the dorm, Silvernale recalled frustratingly on how a group of
       three girls challenged her at the hallway. Even though they used their
       ring weapons, Silvernale still managed to defeat them easily. Annoyed,
       Silvernale retired for the day. Next morning, she woke up earlier than
       expected.

                                    ********
    --> Silvernale took her usual walk through the soothing morning forest. She
        then heard the sounds of sword training and traced them to a man. At
        first glance, she thought it was the younger brother. It was only when
        the man approached her that she realized it was Crestfer and the two had
        a short and rather unfriendly conversation.
    
        Screen then changed back to the classroom. The students were given a
        short holiday for the next day and Elice approached Silvernale to ask
        her out.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Refuse -->Immediately gives you a game over because the reply
                          ruined the friendship between the two girls and Elice
                          never talked to Silvernale anymore.

    -->>Next day, Elice brought Silvernale to a cafe. Elice asked Silvernale
        what happened to Crestfer with Silvernale spewing out a mouthful of
        drink. Elice explained that a few moments after she saw Silvernale
        leaving the forest, Crestfer came out of the forest as well. Silvernale
        replied that it was just a coincidence that she met him and she intended
        to take a different route the next time. Elice continued to tease her
        and it was only at the appearance of a man that she stopped. Alphonce
        approached them and gave some greetings. Elice invited him to join in but
        he politely declined because he was going to meet with someone else.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)With your brother? -->SCENE 4B1

    -->>Next day, Elice brought Silvernale to a cafe. Elice asked Silvernale
        what happened to Crestfer with the Silvernale spewing a mouthful of
        drink. Elice asked if Silvernale attempted to talk to Crestfer again with
        Silvernale giving a negative. Elice continued to tease her and it was
        only at the appearance of a man that she stopped. Alphonce approached
        them and gave some greetings. Elice invited him to join in but he
        politely declined because he was going to meet with someone else.

                                    *********
    -->>Alphonce replied that he's meeting with the Ordineil butler. Not knowing
        what it was about, Silvernale probed further. Alphonce explained that
        Crestfer went back to the mansion a short while ago and that their
        father(the current Lord of Ordineil) has not been in good health and they
        intend to discuss various matters including who's going to take over
        Lord Ordineil's position. With that, Alphonce excused himself.
    
        The next day, Silvernale was given orders to clear up documents in the
        meeting room. She entered and saw someone still in the room. It was a man
        in red. It took only one glance to know that the man was Munzer.B, the
        only Royal Guard in Valcaneer. Munzer asked for her name and Silvernale
        replied accordingly. Munzer requested for Silvernale to tell him from
        whom did she learn her sword skills.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Tell him frankly -->SCENE 5B1
             (2)Don't tell him -->SCENE 5B2

    -->>Silvernale told Munzer that she learnt how to wield a sword from her
        mother and that the doujou(dojo) was taken over by her mother's younger
        brother named Hien. Munzer smiled and said that it's no wonder he found
        her sword techniques familiar. He then asked Silvernale what would she
        do if he were to pull out his sword now and attempt to slay her.

    -->>Silvernale refused to say anything and Munzer got up, apologized for
        dragging her into an idle talk and left. Later at the hallway,
        Silvernale was called back. The voice surprised her and she turned back
        anxiously only to realize that it was not the person she had hope for
        him to be. Alphonce came up and gave her a letter. Silvernale refused to
        accept it unless she knew who the letter came from. Alphonce politely
        told her not to worry because the letter's from an army officer. 
        Silvernale apologized for her reaction and Alphonce replied that it must
        have been very common for a lady such as Silvernale to receive many love
        letters and so the mistake was understandable. Silvernale thanked him
        and he walked away.
    
        Back at the dorm, Silvernale opened the letter and got to know that she
        has been picked as a possible candidate to become a Royal Guard.
        Considering how even she was picked, she presumed that it was without
        a doubt that the Ordineil twins must have been chosen as well. Since the
        letter told her to enter the castle without telling anyone about the
        matter, she did as instructed, but totally not confident of herself.
    
        At the throne room, Silvernale met Munzer who expressed that he expects
        her to be one of the few ones to remain till the end of the exam to
        becoming a Royal Guard. With that, Silvernale cut off her long hair and
        placed all her focus on the exam. Finally, it came to the intellect test.
    
    OPTIONS: **Take note that all answers for this section must be correct, or
               else Silvernale will fail the test and it'll be a game over.

        a proper reason. Munzer asked her what if she could not agree with an
        order from the king to kill someone. Silvernale replied that she will try
        to change the king's mind. With that, Munzer got up, apologized for

    SENSHI is the another short side-story. You'll play it using Bower and see
    happenings from his point of view. The reason for using the romaji word
    "SENSHI" is most likely because the titles of the 5 parts of the side-story
    involve different words but are all pronounced as "senshi". You'll get what I
    mean when you look through the guide below. As with the other 2 side-stories,
    you can save anytime in between by pressing the TRIANGLE button.

        had a short conversation with Roomise. Bower mentioned that apart from
        fighting as mercenaries because they are being hired to do so, he will
        do a special service for Roomise.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Risk his life to protect Roomise
             (2)Help keep Roomise's secret continue to be a secret
             (3)Help Roomise return to his life as a researcher
    
    -->>The two arrived at the field where the Igredias and Dulkheim armies
        were fighting at. The assaults from the angel have caused more than
        half of the Dulkheim soldiers dead. In order to escape, some soldiers
        ran off to the nearby village,and thus there were civilian casualties as
        well. Roomise expressed much sadness at how only a young child in the
        village survived and was brought to Solcorina.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Comfort him that it's not his fault
             (2)Let's stop this tragic war
             (3)This is war
    
    
    Part 2: 戦史 (War records)
    **************************
    
    -->>Roomise recovered somewhat and he ordered his troops to make for Liozrock
        Fortress. Near the enemy's base, Roomise explained his strategy plan. The
        idea was to have Bower bring 10 men to deliberately approach the base
        such that the enemy could spot them. Due to the big difference in the
        numbers, the enemy will chase after Bower's group. Bower must then lure
        the enemy to the cliff where Roomise's group of approximately 40 soldiers
        stand in for ambushing the enemy. After defeating the enemies, they will
        have some soldiers disguise themselves and mix into the base by
        pretending that they have caught Bower's group. When the attack is
        launched, they will be able to attack from both in and out, thus
        reducing the casualties. After the explanation, Roomise asked Bower
        whether he understood what the plan was about.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Yes
             (2)No
    
    -->>After affirmations, the group began operations and Bower moved on to
        commence his part in the plan.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Deliberately let the enemy spot us -->EVENT A
             (2)Sneak near the enemy base -->EVENT B
    
    
                                    *******
                                   [EVENT A]
                                    *******
    -->>Bower moved towards the base and the enemy immediately spotted his group.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Lure them down to near the cliff -->EVENT 1A
             (2)Lure them down to the snowfield -->EVENT 2B
    
    
                                    ********
                                   [EVENT 1A]
                                    ********
    -->>Bower lured the enemy to near the cliff. Roomise's group ambushed the
        enemy and managed to disguise some of their men as Igredias soldiers. 
        The Igredias commander gave an order to send the captured Bower and his
        men to Fandelsia. The command came as a surprise because that was not
        according to the Roomise's plan and Perick(the vice-commander for
        Roomise's troops) tried to probe and persuade the Igredias commander
        with the latter starting to suspect Perick's identity. Fortunately,
        Bower managed to resolve the situation by aggravating the commander with
        some insults to draw his attention away from the suspicions. Just then,
        a messenger appeared and informed the commander that Dulkheim troops
        are attacking them and Perick took advantage of the news to knock down
        the commander. With that, they continued their plan to infiltrate
        Liozrock.
    
        After a long fight, Roomise and Bower managed to bring down the Liozrock
        Fortress.
    
    
    The game then proceeds to Part 3.
    
    
                                    *******
                                   [EVENT B]
                                    *******
    -->>Bower moved towards the base stealthily but the enemy immediately
        spotted his group. The messenger attempted to inform the base about
        the attackers.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Chase after the messenger -->EVENT 1B
             (2)Orders a full retreat -->Bower was injured during the escape and
                                        died. You get the game over screen
    
    
                                    ********
                                   [EVENT 1B]
                                    ********
    -->>Bower managed to kill the messenger but was injured from a back attack
        by the enemy. Roomise came to his rescue in time and due to his injury,
        Bower did not take part in the battle to take down Liozrock Fortress.
    
    The game then proceeds to Part 3.
    
    
                                    ********
                                   [EVENT 2B]
                                    ********
    -->>Upon reaching the snowfield, Bower realized that he got the wrong place
        and that Roomise's group was not lying in ambush there. With the enemies
        surrounding him and his men, Bower decided to react.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Fight back -->EVENT 3B
             (2)Surrender -->Igredias capture Bower's group and they were
                             sentenced to death. Game over.
    
    
                                    ********
                                   [EVENT 3B]
                                    ********
    -->>Bower ordered his men to fight back and just then Roomise appeared with
        his soldiers to save Bower. Even though Bower made a mistake, they
        still managed to reverse it and disguise some of their men as Igredias
        soldiers. The Igredias commander gave an order to send the captured
        Bower and his men to Fandelsia. The command came as a surprise because
        that was not according to the Roomise's plan and Perick(the
        vice-commander for Roomise's troops) tried to probe and persuade the
        Igredias commander with the latter starting to suspect Perick's
        identity. Fortunately, Bower managed to resolve the situation by
        aggravating the commander with some insults to draw his attention away
        from the suspicions. Just then, a messenger appeared and informed the
        commander that Dulkheim troops are attacking them and Perick took
        advantage of the news to knock down the commander. With that, they
        continued their plan to infiltrate Liozrock.
    
        After a long fight, Roomise and Bower managed to bring down the Liozrock
        Fortress.
    
    The game proceeds to Part 3.
    
    
    Part 3: 戦死 (Death in war)
    ***************************
    
    -->>After capturing Liozrock, an order came from Rudvich requesting for
        Roomise to return and lead the troops against Valcaneer instead. Roomise
        and Bower gathered their men to return to Dulkheim. Halfway through the
        journey, they stopped at Solcorina for the night. After an cheery session
        of eating and drinking, Bower saw Roomise missing and went to search for
        him. He managed to locate Roomise and after a short conversation about
        how the latter was visiting the orphanage, a scream was heard from the
        town's entrance. A guard came reporting that the attacks were started by
        Death Wings mercenary group. Bower was shocked to see the Death Wings
        leader still alive and it was only after some talk during the fight
        that he got to know that the armor for the Death Wings leader was passed
        on from one to the next.
    
        A tedious fight with Roomise returning saw the Death Wings retreating.
        Nevertheless, it did not take too long before things happened again.
        Roomise's troops were being attacked and urgently required reinforcement
        from Bower, but the enemy was also attacking Solcorina.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Save Roomise -->Civillian casualties
             (2)Save the villagers -->Casualties on Roomise's side
    
    -->>After repelling the attacks, Roomise and Bower finally made their way
        back to Rudvich at Dulkheim. Despite the casualties in the battles at
        Solcorina, Rudvich did not pursue the matter and praised them instead.
        Roomise was troubled over that and asked Bower what could be the reason.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Didn't want to hurt our pride and morale
             (2)He thinks highly of Roomise
             (3)He understands what we are going through
    
    -->>Roomise told Bower that Rudvich's a man who cared more for his own
        personal gains than about others and that he probably found Roomise
        and Bower still useful, that was why he did not blame them for what
        happened at Solcorina. Despite so, both decided not to harp on the
        matter.
    
    
    Part 4: 千思 (A thousand thoughts)
    **********************************
    
    -->>Leaving the battle with Valcaneer to Roomise, Rudvich left for the war
        with Igredias after Drangus died. A report soon came to Roomise that
        Rudvich was successful in defeating Igredias. However, Roomise was more
        concerned about the death of the group of summoners Rudvich brought with
        him to Igredias.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)He used the summoners as a decoy
             (2)He killed the summoners
             (3)He ordered for only the summoners to fight in the battles
    
    -->>After Bower's guess, Roomise explained that Rudvich gave a special
        mission to the summoners. It was to infiltrate into the enemy's base and
        use summoning. It was doubtless that the act was for the sake of luring
        the angels and making use of the angels' attacks to annihilate the
        Igredias armies. That greatly reduced the time needed to fight the war
        and made it possible for Rudvich to return back to Dulkheim in time for
        the Presidential Elections. Roomise was greatly troubled by Rudvich
        and asked Bower what should he do.
    
    OPTIONS: (1)Reject all of Rudvich's unreasonable requests
             (2)Ask him what exactly does he want to achieve
             (3)We are mercenaries and only follow orders -->This gets you
                game over because the two couldn't come up with anything
    
    -->>Bower told Roomise that the only way out of that was for Roomise to
        remove Rudvich and for him to lead Igredias instead. Roomise doubted
        himself but was assured by Bower that whatever Rudvich can achieve, he's
        capable of doing the same as well. With that, both knew what they wished
        to work towards.
    
    
    Part 5: 戦志 (Resolution for war)
    *********************************
    
    -->>At Fort Izenbant, reports came of how Crevaniel's group is approaching.
        Before taking the enemy on, Roomise asked for Bower to accompany him to
        talk to Rudvich. Roomise asked Rudvich what kind of country the latter
        intended to mould Dulkheim into. Roomise told Rudvich that he may
        become an enemy depending on his reply. Rudvich told Roomise that he
        wishes to create a country where no one will be hurt and where everyone
        can live safe and peaceful lives. Upon hearing that, Roomise and Bower
        excused themselves without giving an answer as to whether they may
        become Rudvich's enemies or not. Seeing that he could no longer make use
        of Roomise and Bower for long, Rudvich asked Kergil to act when the need
        should arise. Back on the 1st level, Roomise told Bower that he's going
        to think about what to do with Rudvich but not before they defeat the
        Marculey enemies. Another report came saying of Crevaniel's group
        reaching the fort and with non-wavering resolve, both proceeded to engage
        the enemy.

    UNIMPRESSIVE preview to Growlanser V and two images of its protagonist
    Zeonsilt <.<

    ==Q&A==
    
    As usual, Q&A section again. Feel free to drop me any mail regarding the
    game itself.
    
    Q: Do I need to play other games to be able to enjoy this game?
    A: Actually...yes, especially Growlanser IV: Wayfarer of the Time. As for
       Growlanser 1-3, it's not that big a deal but you'll be able to understand
       many small details if you've played them before.
    
    Q: Who exactly is Melkyus?
    A: In the main game of Wayfarer of Time, remember the statue of the mermaid
       at Marcuria? Also, the one who wrote the book predicting the future of
       how the Marcuria twins will perish? She's Melkyus.
    
    Q: I can't pick the Familiar LM version of the ending.
    A: You need to load the Growlanser IV: Wayfarer of the time save data which
       has your Growlanser III clear data loaded IN IT. There's no other way
       around this...sadly.
    
    Q: Are you sure you have listed each and every possible main event for the
       side-stories in this guide?
    A: Yeah, somehow. Reason for that is I don't have a Japanese Growlanser III
       clear data and thus I cannot get LM's ending. I don't think it will affect
       the interaction with Monica and Rummy but I won't say for sure. Apart from
       that though, everything's OK.
    
    Q: I can't get all 100 question of the cult quiz correct!!!
    A: Well, even though I've played all of the Growlanser games that's out until
       now, I can't even get more than half of them correct on my first few
       tries because some involve questions only known in optional events. It
       was through a lot of recalling, reference and trial and error sessions
       that I finally managed to. In any case, just pick the ones listed in this
       guide, you'll get it.
    
    Q: Why are some of the names for Growlanser II and III different?
    A: That's because I base or romanize most of them off from the Japanese
       versions. So if the II and III you've played are the US versions, you will
       see some differences, but I believe they are easily recognizable.
    
    Q: Please translate the entire game script.
    A: Instead of replying paragraphs on why I don't want to each time I receive
       such requests, I'll answer them here once and for all. Translating the
       entire script is not as easy as just translating. You need to take down
       each and every sentence if you do not know how to extract the text dump.
       Even if you managed to get the dump(which I can't), translating such
       large amounts of text require a lot of work and time. To be frank, I
       don't have that much time or energy to do the entire thing. Lastly,
       I'm an extremely weird person in the sense that I cannot put aside
       something I've done halfway through and return back to do it after taking
       a few weeks/months break. That's why I won't attempt to do any
       translations/faqs unless I'm confident I can afford the time to do the
       main thing from start to end within a specific time period. I apologize,
       but that's just my style.
