==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.

Time. This is also the section which will solve the rumors regarding the

--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.

                                *******
-->>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 a long fight, the monsters were all dead. Crevaniel looked around
    but Monica was missing. He called out many times but there was no reply.

OPTIONS: (1)Immediately search for her 
         (2)Wait for a while and if she still doesn't appear, then proceed

                               [PATH 1C]
                                *******
-->>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.


                                ********
                               [ENDING 4]
                                ********
-->>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.



Part 3: 帰還 (Return)
*********************

-->>Screen shows the Space-Time Interval again. Back then, Gloria told
    Crevaniel to recall back his past and concentrate his thoughts on a
    person close to him.

Once you've finished the entire thing, you can go to the Appendix and view
the CG and scenario titles you've obtained. Remember that each time you get
a new scenario title(game over or not), the game will prompt you to save.
Just always save. It's a system data which is totally separate from the ones
you save while you are going through the side-story. The Appendix reflects
your collection from the system data. If you've gone through every path and
ending in the flowchart, all the empty slots and spaces for your CG and
scenario titles should be filled.

Foreboding's title screen have the NEW GAME and LOAD GAME option. This is
a very short side-story with you playing as Silvernale and seeing happenings
from her point of view. There are only two endings to this side-story, one is
the correct ending and the other is the bad ending which will bring out the
familiar game over screen. Options you picked throughout the side-story will
affect which ending you'll proceed towards. For clarity's sake, all scenes
with "A" will lead you to correct ending, and all choices linked to PATH B
will give you the game over ending.

One more thing: you can save anytime by pressing the TRIANGLE button.


--New game--

-->>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
         (2)Let her continue

-->>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
    almost too perfect. After more nagging, she left.

OPTIONS: (1)Return back to the dorm -->Brings you to SCENE B
         (2)Continue to look for a while more -->Brings you to SCENE A


                                *******
                               [SCENE A]
                                *******
-->>Silvernale stayed at the spot for a short while more and she spotted
    Crestfer putting on a trouble expression.

OPTIONS: (1)I must have seen wrongly -->SCENE 1B
         (2)I couldn't have seen wrongly -->SCENE 1A

                              
                                ********
                               [SCENE 1A]
                                ********
-->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


                                ********
                               [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.
         (2)Acknowledge -->SCENE 3A


                                ********
                               [SCENE 3A]
                                ********
-->>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


                                ********
                               [SCENE 5A]
                                ********
-->>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.

Question: Approximately how long ago was the angels' annihilation of the
          human civilization?

          (1)4
          (2)6
          (3)8 -->Correct answer


-->>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.

         (2)Get up for a short walk -->SCENE 1B

    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.

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.


--New game--

Part 1: 戦士 (Warriors)
***********************

-->>After sending Rems and Crevaniel off from the Fandelsia mansion, Bower
    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.

After you have gotten every question correct, you get a present on the title
screen. It's really not a present because it only shows a very short "clip"
on the publication dates of the first four games as well as a VERY VERY VERY
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.
