Phantom Kingdom
Translation/Import Guide
by KiTA

---

The following is a guide designed to help import players figure out
Phantom Kingdom, the next amazing title in the Nippon Ichi SRPG lineup.

Phantom Kingdom is a lot different than previous NIS SRPGs.  The addition
of buildings to the game adds a new RTS element to the game, while the
focus on foot troops instead of 1-3 story characters infuses the game
with much more strategy than previous incarnations.

The information in this guide is being translated and pieced together
by me, using information from several Japanese websites, including
pk.daihouko.com and phantom.g-unlimited.com.  I cannot actually read
Japanese, so I am using a translator to piece together enough of the
game.


A.  Basic Troop List
Unlike previous Nippon Ichi SRPGs, Phantom Brave is devoid of story
characters entirely the first time through.  Only the second time
through do cameo and special characters join you.  Thus, it becomes
very important to know the strengths and weaknesses of each class,
because you will need to mix and match them to their full effect to
win.

The following is a quick listing of the basic classes in the game.
Their class type, and rank 1 names, are listed below.  The rank 1
names are listed to ease finding them in the list of characters.

D.  EXP Tricks

* 3-4 邪悪
Vicious

This map has 1 building with 4 people inside of it.  If you put
a strong person in the buildling to take it over, anyone you
summon will get any bonus XP at the end of the fight.  Summon a
building or 3 full of characters, then move your high level
characters into the building to storm it.

Characters inside of buildings get bonus XP at the end of fights.

Once you become strong enough (about 900 attack power) to destroy
the building, this is a great source of mana.

* 5-3 憂い
Anxiety

This map is good for leveling up medium level characters.  There
is a building high up on a pillar with few enemies outside of it
-- allowing you to take the enemies slower than other maps in this area.

* 5-4 灰色
Gray

This map only has 14 Level 1 Voodoo Dolls.  They are equipped with
hammers, which lower your level as an added effect if you get hit.

To level up characters fast here, summon a building, pull someone
out of it, and attack Zeta (the book).  Everything on the screen will
take damage -- and since the enemies have such low HP, they will die
in a single hit -- causing the characters in the building to get
considerable bonus XP.

This is also a good place to LOWER your level if you need to (for
creating buildings).

* 6-4 暗闇
Darkness

This map is dangerous, but easy to level up on.  There is a very
high level character in the last building, however, if you break all
the buildings and characters before him, you can choose to end the
fight.  If you can destroy his building (by summoning a building,
throwing it closer, then pulling people out of it) before he comes
out, it's even easier.

* 7-6大略奪
Large Plunder

Raw translation:  If a food plant is destroyed by a strong character,
the enemy’s numbers will decrease, and you can invite a building
with characters you would like to level up.

* 8-1覚悟
Preperation

There are only 3 strong characters here.
First turn, defeat the shadow.
Second turn, defeat all the saber kitties.

* 8-2 悲痛
Sadness

Although this map is rather difficult and has lots of high level
characters, if you can survive it, it's a great place to level up.

* 9-1意図
Intention

Because the targets all tend to bunch up, if you have 2 or 3
characters with large area of effect skills/spells, it's easy to
level up here.

* 9-2 誘惑
Temptation

Since an enemy tends to pack together, you can defeat them at a
huge distance using circle spells.  This map is great for XP and
Mana.

* 9-8 宴前夜
Midnight Party

At the start, this map only has 1 building with troops inside.
If you have a strong enough character, you can break the building
or siege it and end the fight immediately.

* 9-9 決意
Decision

Although I don't recommend this stage until much later, if you have
circle spells and high level area of effect attack skills, you can
clear out this map very easily.   Use circle spells on the center
group first, then clean up the mobs in the back on turn two.

In this map, using a school building (+50-80% to XP gained), getting
to level 250 is easy.

After level 200 or so, it's much easier to level up inside of random
dungeons.
(Warning, in some random dungeon levels, you cannot invite buildings,
so be prepared for that by leaving some characters outside of buildings.)

* Other tricks
If you attack someone in your home base, you can kill them for mana.
Note that killing too many characters will force you into the bad ending.
