    III. Foreword
    Hello, and welcome to my FAQ and walkthrough for Record of Agarest War! I down-
    loaded this game after reading some intriguing reviews and reports about its
    special features, and while the game didn't live up to my lofty expectations,
    it was good enough to keep me coming back. I also noticed that there was no
    complete walkthrough for the game and minimal resources to help fellow strategy
    RPG gamers figure out what to do, so I took it upon myself to provide them with
    one. Flawed though the game is, it became more engrossing as I began to under-
    stand the mechanics behind it, and I'm hoping that this guide will make the
    game more playable for those who want to give it a try.
    
    In this FAQ, I will provide explanations of the game mechanics, walkthroughs of
    the scripted battles, lists of the enemies that can appear in random battles,
    maps of the dungeons, summaries of the plot, results of choosing each different
    dialogue option, and recipes for all of the different items. I will compile new
    sections based on reader demand and contributions.
    
    I wrote this FAQ while playing through the North American version of the game
    on Hard Mode. On Easy or Normal Mode, enemy HP and parameters will be reduced
    accordingly, and your characters can reach a maximum level of 350 rather than
    999.
    
    In any case, if you're looking for a resource to help you survive the worst
    that Record of Agarest War has to offer, this walkthrough is for you.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IV. Basics
    Unless you bought your copy of the game in Japan or imported it, you'll have to
    play without an instruction manual. The tutorials can't be relied upon to ex-
    plain the finer points of the game clearly, so read this section first if you
    have any questions about basic gameplay elements.
    
    A. Attributes
    There are five attributes in the game, each of which is tied to one or more
    stats. Characters have different growth rates in each attribute, which deter-
    mine how much it costs for them to raise that attribute with Party Points (PP)
    or the points they receive when they gain a level. A better growth rate lowers
    the maximum point cost of an attribute and the rate at which this cost rises,
    thus allowing a character to raise the attribute higher without spending as
    many points.
    
    STR - Strength. Influences the effectiveness of a character's physical attacks.
          Each point of STR adds 6 points to ATK and half a point to HIT.
    
    VIT - Vitality. Influences a character's resistance to physical attacks. Each
          point of VIT adds 3 points to DEF. Each time characters level up, they
          gain HP equal to thrice their base (unequipped) VIT plus twice the level
          they've reached.
    
    AGI - Agility. Influences a character's ability to dodge physical attacks and
          act quickly in battle. Each point of AGI adds half a point to AVD.
    
    INT - Intelligence. Influences a character's ability to use and resist magic.
          Each point of INT adds 6 points to MAG and 4 points to RST.
    
    LUK - Luck. Influences the success rate of a character's attempts to steal from
          and capture monsters. Each point of LUK adds half a point to both HIT and
          AVD.
    
    It's generally a good idea to decide whether characters will be frontline
    fighters, support fighters, or spellcasters early on and invest points in their
    attributes accordingly. Frontline fighters need lots of STR and VIT; support
    fighters need lots of STR and AGI; spellcasters need lots of INT and (possibly)
    AGI. LUK doesn't need to be increased very much unless a character is going to
    be capturing and/or stealing frequently.
    
    B. Battle System
    This is where the meat of the game lies. You'll be spending most of your time
    on the battlefield, and if you become intimately familiar with the combat sys-
    tem and its many intricacies, you'll thrive there. It's impossible to flee from
    battles, and most of them will continue until either your party or the enemy
    party has been wiped out.
    
    Battles are divided into two phases: the Move Phase and the Action Phase.
    
    1. Move Phase
    At the beginning of this phase, combatants gain a number of AP (Action Points)
    equal to their base AP score. They can stay in their starting position or move
    into any empty square within their movement range; moving 1 square costs 1 AP.
    The enemies will not move until your party moves, so don't worry about being
    preempted.
    
    When you move the cursor over each character, you'll notice that certain
    squares start flashing. These are extend spaces, and moving another character
    into one of them will link the two characters together with a beam of green
    light, allowing them to generate extra AP during the Action Phase and combine
    their attacks against a single enemy. Link your whole party together, and they
    can all combine their attacks against any enemy that one or more of them can
    reach. Good positioning and wise use of combined attacks will allow you to fell
    even the most powerful foes. Be warned, however, that your enemies can form
    links of their own.
    
    Generally, you want to face your characters in whichever direction allows them
    to form links most easily. Bear in mind that attacks from the sides or the rear
    inflict extra damage, so you may want to think more defensively when facing
    particularly strong enemies.
    
    2. Action Phase
    This phase begins once you have confirmed your characters' moves. During this
    phase, you and the enemies get to launch your attacks. The combatants with the
    highest AGI and AP totals take their turns first, and may act according to the
    AP they have available. The turn order is displayed in the meter at the top of
    the screen.
    
    Linked characters should use coordinated combinations of skills to defeat the
    most dangerous foes and stop them from performing combination attacks. Focusing
    on one enemy at a time is usually a good strategy, because consecutive attacks
    deplete an enemy's break gauge. Once this gauge is fully depleted, the enemy
    will become more vulnerable to damage. Your party members have their own break
    gauges, which can be depleted by a concerted enemy assault. Try not to let this
    happen.
    
    One thing to bear in mind when launching combined attacks is the range of each
    skill. Characters can attack enemies who are outside of the normal range of
    their skills during a combined attack, but they will automatically move to the
    closest empty square from which they can use the skill. If no such squares are
    empty, they will not be able to act. Plan your attacks carefully to ensure that
    none of your characters cut each other off.
    
    Certain skills, when used in succession, combine to form Extended Skills. You
    can discover the combinations on your own, or by reading manuals purchased from
    item shops. Extended Skills are more powerful than normal skills and will score
    additional hits against foes with empty break gauges. They're best used at the
    end of a combo, after wearing an enemy down with multi-hit skills.
    
    Every time a skill is used, both the user(s) and the target(s) gain 5 SP
    (Spirit Points). The surviving combatants will also gain a bit of SP each time
    someone is defeated. High SP can trigger special abilities or be expended to
    perform Extra Skills, which inflict devastating damage. Some Extra Skills hit
    over a large area, making them ideal for clearing out groups of weak enemies or
    doing severe damage to bosses. Many enemies have Extra Skills of their own, so
    pay attention to their AP and SP and make them priority targets if they're
    about to unleash hell on your party.
    
    If one of your party members is slain, his or her body will turn to crystal. A
    counter will appear over the crystal and decrease by 1 on each of the departed
    character's turns. If the counter reaches zero or the battle ends, the crystal
    will disappear and the character will stay dead until you pay to have him or
    her revived in town. Using a revival item or spell on the crystal before it
    disappears will prevent this from happening.
    
    Reducing an enemy to its negative maximum HP total results in overkill. For
    example, if an enemy has 100 maximum HP, reducing it to -100 HP with one or
    more attacks will overkill it. Overkilled enemies always drop items, which may
    be even more valuable than the ones they drop at random.
    
    Unused AP carry over to the next combat round. Characters can accumulate up to
    twice their base AP score in stored AP.
    
    3. Aftermath
    Winning a battle earns you EXP (Experience), G (Gold), EP (Enhancement Points),
    and TP (Technique Points). You will receive a grade ranging from S (the best)
    to I (the worst) for each battle, which will be higher if you finish the battle
    quickly and if your party's average level is lower than the average level of
    your enemies. The better your grade, the larger the percentage boost to your
    earnings will be.
    
    Enhancement Points can be used to enhance your equipment at the blacksmith.
    Technique Points can be exchanged for items and skills at the guildhouses in
    town. Spend your EP and TP wisely to keep your characters prepared for the
    challenges they will face.
    
    C. Exploring the World
    If you aren't locked in mortal combat with bloodthirsty monsters or using the
    spoils of victory to strengthen your party, you'll be visiting one of the sites
    below.
    
    1. Exploration Points
    Isometric mazes that you explore in search of treasure and bosses. You will
    randomly encounter monsters while questing in these dungeons, and your party's
    HP will not be restored until you return to the world map. Fight conservatively
    and heal wounded party members before finishing each battle to avoid suffering
    losses from attrition.
    
    Note that healing items can be used between battles in dungeons, but revival
    items cannot.
    
    2. Events
    These can occur almost anywhere. They consist of cutscenes, which may give you
    plot-related information, allow you to interact with a potential bride, or
    herald a series of battles. Like in dungeons, your party will not be healed
    between battles, but you'll be given a chance to reorganize your party and save
    your game.
    
    The events that take place throughout the game are influenced by a variety of
    factors, including the Link Gauge, turn counter, and affection levels of your
    potential brides. You will not see certain events unless you meet the required
    conditions.
    
    3. Towns
    Bastions of civilization that provide a number of useful services for intrepid
    adventuring parties.
    
    Item Shop - You can purchase new equipment here. Many of the items and skills
                that you create at the blacksmith guild or adventurer's guild will
                be added to this shop's inventory.
    
    Blacksmith Guild - You can alchemically enhance or create equipment here. You
                       will need EP to enhance equipment, and raw materials and
                       Gold to create it.
    
    Adventurer's Guild - You can earn new titles by meeting certain conditions. The
                         guild will reward you with items, Gold, PP, and TP for
                         each new title you earn. Later, you'll be able to exchange
                         your saved TP for items, use Gold and raw materials to re-
                         search new skills, and register your records to the game's
                         leaderboards.
    
    Monster Guild - You can combine your captured monsters to create new ones, or
                    trade them in for items.
    
    First Aid - You can revive slain party members at the infirmary. The cost of
                revival is 100 G per level of the deceased.
    
    Alchemist's Guild - You can use old memories to animate characters from earlier
                        generations as marionettes, which will fight alongside your
                        party. Forbidden Tomes are needed to create marionettes,
                        and the cost of animating one is 5000 G per level of the
                        desired character.
    
    Horoscope - You can visit the fortune teller to learn the attributes of the
                children you can father with your potential brides. Each fortune
                will cost you a modest 100 G.
    
    D. Helpful Hints
    VIT influences HP growth and is important for all characters. The HP gains are
    not retroactive, but if you invest several points in it at low levels, your
    characters will be much more durable at the end of the game.
    
    Always stock up on revival items before entering a dungeon or starting an event
    battle. Several of the bosses employ Extra Skills that can severely wound or
    kill multiple targets, and Fragments/Stones/Vessels of Life will save you from
    annihilation if this happens.
    
    Save before going to any of the event locations, preferably on a separate slot.
    If you don't like the result of a battle or a decision, reload and try again.
    
    Take the time to overkill every new enemy you meet. It's a guaranteed way to
    get items, many of which are useful for crafting new equipment or fulfilling
    the requirements for titles.
    
    Dungeons are good places to grind. You can get in several encounters in a short
    span of time by wandering around, and the turn counter doesn't increase while
    you're inside. This is especially important if you're going for the True End.
    
    The strongest enemies in most dungeons randomly appear in the boss room after
    the boss has been defeated. Seek them out if you're looking for a challenge;
    they aren't easy prey, but the rewards are worth the effort.
    
    Don't bother with the auto-battle feature unless you're much, much stronger
    than the enemies you're fighting. It fights very inefficiently and will often
    get your party killed.
    
    When enemies that can counterattack are hit with combos, they will only try to
    retaliate against the last party member who dealt them damage. Finish combos
    with ranged attacks or spells to circumvent an enemy's counterattack.
    
    Earn as many titles as you can before the end of each generation. The rewards
    can really help you out, and you'll save yourself the trouble of backtracking
    for titles during later generations.
    
    The expressions of the portraits that you see during the cutscenes indicate the
    affection levels of potential brides. In order from lowest to highest affection
    levels, the expressions are as follows: yelling, frowning, smiling, laughing,
    blushing.
    
    At the end of each generation, take the woman with the highest affection level
    as your bride. She'll give you a stronger protagonist to control in the next
    generation.

    V. Walkthrough
    Throughout this section, I will provide rough maps of the dungeons and over-
    views of the scripted battles and the events that you can expect to see if you
    follow the same path that I did through the game. Alternative paths and the
    conditions for getting certain events will be provided based on contributions
    from other players and my own experience during future playthroughs.
    
    Recommended level is the recommended AVERAGE level of your party members if you
    don't want to struggle with a particular dungeon, battle, or series of battles.
    Depending on your strategy, skill, and equipment setups, you may be able to
    clear certain battles at levels lower than my recommendations.
    
    The enemies that appear in the scripted battles will always be the same. The
    enemies that appear on the world map may vary, and I have listed every enemy
    that I have encountered at each location.
    
    When listing the results of your choices during certain events, a + after a
    woman's name indicates that her affection will increase and a - after a woman's
    name indicates that her affection will decrease.
    
    A. First Generation
    This chapter tells the story of Leonhardt, also known as "Golden Leo." He is an
    officer in the Gridamas army who becomes embroiled in a quest that will span
    generations and determine the fate of the entire world.
    
    The women that Leonhardt can choose to marry are Fyuria, Luana, and Elaine.
    
    1. Frontier
    After selecting the difficulty of the game and learning about the history of
    the world, you'll get to watch your first battle. It's a duel between Kasibal
    and Leonhardt, which will play out automatically. You can switch to manual con-
    trol by pressing Select if you want to input a command, but the battle will be
    over soon regardless.
    
    After a conversation between Leonhardt and Kasibal, your first real battle will
    begin.
    
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

    *                                                                             *
    * Enemies: L1 Frontier Soldier (x4)                                           *
    *                                                                             *
    * Strategy: You control Leonhardt, Kasibal, and two Gridamas Soldiers during  *
    * this battle. Approach the enemies and save your AP during the first round,  *
    * then unload on them during the next round to take them down easily. Try to  *
    * overkill them for Silver Ore.                                               *
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    You'll be given the chance to save your game at this point.
    
    Later, a Gridamas officer named Musaka and his troops are threatening an elven
    girl. Leonhardt witnesses the assault and intervenes on her behalf.
    
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    * BATTLE #2                                                                   *
    *                                                                             *
    * Enemies: L1 Musaka, L1 Frontier Soldier (x2)                                *
    *                                                                             *
    * Strategy: Leonhardt must fight this battle alone. Musaka poses the biggest  *
    * threat, so you want to take him down first. Stand back and conserve your AP *
    * on the first round, then use Double Edge and Power Attack successively to   *
    * perform the Extended Skill Broken Hit. It will do well over 100 damage and  *
    * make quick work of Musaka. Once he's down, mop up the Frontier Soldiers to  *
    * seize victory. Use Grass to restore your HP if they run low.                *
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    While traveling with the elf girl, Leonhardt runs into Melchior and the Dark
    Knight. They've learned about his fight with Musaka, and they're none too happy
    to see him consorting with the enemy. Leonhardt sends the elf girl away and
    buys her some time to escape by engaging the Dark Knight.

    *                                                                             *

    *                                                                             *
    * Strategy: If your adversary's 129,998 HP and 1768 ATK didn't give it away,  *
    * this battle is unwinnable. Just let him kill you.                           *
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    Leonhardt suffers a mortal wound in the battle, so Melchior and the Dark Knight
    walk off and leave him to die. As his surroundings fade to black, he is visited
    by a strange woman named Dyshana, who offers to revive him in return for his
    and his descendants' souls. Eager for a chance to redeem himself, Leonhardt ac-
    cepts her offer and goes off in search of the elf girl. When he finds her cor-
    nered by a large, bestial humanoid, he jumps to her defense.

    *                                                                             *
    * Enemies: L2 ???? (larva)                                                    *

    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    The elf girl interrupts the confrontation to tell Leonhardt that the humanoid
    is Borgnine, her guardian. She introduces herself as Ellis and promises to lead
    the group to civilization.
    
    When you reach the world map, add Ellis and Borgnine to your party. Borgnine is
    a heavy hitter who can soak up lots of damage, and complements Leonhardt well
    on the front lines. Ellis has powerful offensive magic and the Heal spell, but
    is very fragile. She has superior range when linked, so it's advisable to place
    her in the rear of your formation.
    
    Once you're finished organizing your party, follow the road to the Hidden Path.
    
    -> Frontier Road, West
    Enemies: L1 Thief
    
    Even though the Thieves usually appear in groups of three, they pose little to
    no threat. Overkill them for Grass.
    
    2. Hidden Path
    Leonhardt, Ellis, and Borgnine find a large rock blocking the path to Dodone.
    Not willing to give up or change their course, they decide to smash their way
    through it.

    * Strategy: The Rock won't attack you, so use this opportunity to find out    *
    * which combinations of skills and Extended Skills will maximize your damage- *
    * dealing ability. If you accumulate enough SP to use your Extra Skills, you  *
    * can quickly reduce the Rock to dust.                                        *
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    -> Frontier Road, East
    Enemies: L1 Thief
    
    3. Dodone
    This is your first chance to stock up on supplies. Buy manuals from the item
    shop and use your saved EP to enhance your party's weapons and armor at the
    blacksmith. You can fight Thieves on the Frontier Road if you need Gold or EP.
    
    -> South Murks Road, West
    Enemies: L1 Thief

    The enemies in this dungeon can be deadly if you're unprepared or unlucky. The
    Hornets are fast, and the Hell Dogs hit hard and have a high evade rate. They
    also have a devastating counterattack that they use in response to close-range
    attacks. It can do 200+ damage to a character, so keep Ellis away from them and
    use short-range attacks only to finish them off. If your party gets worn down,
    exit the dungeon to restore the injured characters' lost HP, then return to
    explore some new areas.
    
    If you take the time to search the forest throroughly, you'll be rewarded with
    some nice treasure. The Bone Guard, which gives a nice boost to a character's
    physical defense, and the Thunder skill, which damages and may paralyze one
    target, are particularly valuable finds.
    
    Proceed to Alfheim after making your way through the forest.
    
    -> Hamas Animal Trail
    Enemies: L3 Hornet, L4 Hell Dog
    
    -> Alfheim
    Enemies: None
    
    The party meets Ellis's grandfather Teonor and learns that Borgnine is a larva
    who was willed into existence by Ellis. Teonor asks Leonhardt to help him re-
    trieve a stolen elven artifact, and at Dyshana's urging, he agrees.
    
    After the scene plays out, enter the town again to meet Vira-Lorr, a three-eyed
    seeress. She's the most powerful offensive spellcaster you'll find for a while,
    and a little less fragile than Ellis. Add her to your party once you return to
    the world map.
    
    -> North Murks Road, East
    Enemies: L3 Hornet, L4 Hell Dog
    
    -> North Murks Road, Central
    Enemies: L3 Hornet, L4 Hell Dog
    
    -> North Murks Road, West

    Cut your way through the enemies, overkilling them whenever possible to earn
    crafting materials.
    
    5. Mimas

    After a party discussion about tactics, you'll be thrown into the party screen.

    * Strategy: Position your party, save your AP, and let them approach you in   *

    * final soldier.                                                              *

    * Strategy: This battle is a little harder than the last one, but the same    *
    * basic strategy applies. Get your party into position, build up your SP by   *
    * defeating the soldiers with Extended Skills, then demolish the captain with *
    * Extra Skills.                                                               *

    After the battle, Leonhardt introduces himself to Fyuria, an elf maiden who was
    being harassed by the Gridamas forces. She is unfriendly and suspicious of him
    at first, but eventually agrees to travel with him. She's a fast and well-
    balanced character who can use either magic or physical attacks effectively,
    and should be added to your party as soon as you return to the world map.
    
    Return to Dodone, and you'll notice that alchemy and horoscopes are now avail-
    able. Use your saved Gold and materials to craft new weapons and armor.

    * Strategy: Once again, hang back and build up your AP while the enemies come *
    * to you. Depending on your preference, you can defeat the soldiers for SP    *
    * and destroy the captain with Extra Skills, or focus on the captain first    *
    * and then mop up his subordinates; either strategy works well. If you defeat *
    * the captain first, you can then take out two soldiers per turn by splitting *

    *                                                                             *
    * Enemies: L7 ???? (gunman), L5 Zerva                                         *
    *                                                                             *
    * Strategy: Your priority here is not to defeat the enemies, but to survive.  *
    * This battle will automatically end in three turns or when you have only one *
    * living party member, so keep as many people alive as possible to maximize   *
    * your rewards and minimize the money you'll have to spend on revivals.       *
    *                                                                             *
    * The gunman has strong physical attacks, Zerva has strong magical attacks,   *
    * and both of them are fast. They can easily kill a party member if they team *
    * up on him or her, so stay out of the range of their attacks as you build up *
    * your AP. Zerva has lower HP and DEF than the gunman, so hit him hard and    *
    * fast with Extended Skills on the second round. The gunman will most likely  *
    * kill a character or two on his turn, but the battle will end after he does. *
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    You will receive the Force Field field after finishing the battle.
    
    The gunman flees the battlefield, saying he's not being paid enough to die, and
    Fyuria persuades Zerva to join the party and help them bring an end to the war.
    Leonhardt realizes that they will need more troops to match the military might
    of Gridamas, and decides to seek aid from the kingdom of Rigulus.
    
    You will be prompted to choose between breaking through Zelzagun Fortress or
    going around to the north and sailing to Rigulus.
    
    ===========================
    
    Break through Zelzagun Fort
    ---------------------------
    DARK shift, Fyuria -
    
    Go around
    ---------
    LIGHT shift, Fyuria +
    
    ===========================
    
    I chose to go around. Your path will be different if you choose another option.
    
    Before progressing, add Zerva to the party to fill your roster. He fights with
    scythes, which can hit all three squares in front of him. He has lower HP and
    a more magical bent than his sister, so make sure he's well-supported by strong
    and hardy fighters.
    
    -> Puteaux Forest, South
    Enemies: L4 Hell Dog, L5 Goblin, L6 Imp
    
    -> Puteaux Forest, Central
    Enemies: L4 Hell Dog, L5 Goblin, L6 Imp
    
    -> Puteaux Forest, North
    Enemies: L4 Hell Dog, L5 Goblin, L6 Imp
    
    The Imps have decent magic attacks, but low HP. Goblins and Hell Dogs should be
    cake by now. Trounce them.
    
    -> Alcina Wharf
    Enemies: None
    
    Zerva says that he has prepared a boat, and the party sets sail for Rigulus.
    
    -> Celades Waters I
    Enemies: L5 Goblin, L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton
    
    -> Celades Waters II
    Enemies: L5 Goblin, L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton
    
    -> Celades Waters III
    Enemies: L5 Goblin, L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton
    
    -> Celades Waters IV
    Enemies: L5 Goblin, L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton
    
    The Skeletons are fast and well-rounded. Make them high-priority targets, and
    you should have few problems during the voyage.
    
    -> Ridinia Island
    Enemies: None
    
    Zerva asks Leonhardt what he plans to do after reaching Rigulus. To Fyuria's
    dismay, Leo admits that he has nothing planned beyond petitioning the king for
    help. Ellis and Vira-Lorr remain optimistic and supportive of Leo, and the par-
    ty presses on.
    
    -> Luminil Bay
    Enemies: L5 Goblin, L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton
    
    7. Rigulus
    Leonhardt risks arrest and execution by meeting with King Gunther alone. The
    king admits that he fears for his kingdom and wants to help the people of the
    Frontier, but is unable to commit troops because of the incessant attacks by
    beasts from the Cave of Origin. A particularly strong beast is preventing the
    king's soldiers from sealing the cave. If Leonhardt and his companions can slay
    this beast, King Gunther will pledge his support to the Frontier.
    
    -> Rymt Haim Trail, East
    Enemies: L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton, L7 Lesser Bat
    
    The Lesser Bats have low HP, but are fast and have strong magic. They can dodge
    physical attacks, but magic is quite effective against them.
    
    After clearing this area, go back to Rigulus for a special event. Leonhardt
    will buy Fyuria a doll and talk to her about her childhood, shifting the Link
    Gauge towards LIGHT and increasing Fyuria's affection for him.
    
    -> Rymt Haim Trail, West
    Enemies: L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton, L7 Lesser Bat
    
    -> Chalcis
    Enemies: None
    
    -> Sohbrook Bypath, East
    Enemies: L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton, L7 Lesser Bat
    
    -> Sohbrook Bypath, Central
    Enemies: L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton, L7 Lesser Bat
    
    -> Sohbrook Bypath, West
    Enemies: L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton, L7 Lesser Bat
    
    The enemies are the same as the ones on the Rymt Haim Trail, but they appear in
    groups of 6-7 at a time. The battles here are dangerous, but the rewards are
    worth the risk.
    
    IMPORTANT! The enemies in the Cave of Origin are quite powerful, and I highly
    recommend leveling up before trying to clear it. The first two rooms of the
    cave, where the enemies are weaker and less numerous, are a good place to gain
    EXP. Craft the best weapons, armor, and accessories you can afford, and spend
    your saved EP to upgrade them - you'll need them if you want to survive.
    
    8. Cave of Origin
    Recommended Level: 9
    
    Enemies: L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton, L7 Lesser Bat, L8 Big Crab, L9 Fairy, L10
    Lycanthrope, L11 Mandrake, L12 Mage, L21 Jumbo Cock

           3   1
    
    As you enter the cave, you'll see a cutscene of Melchior discussing strategy
    with General Elaine, Marquis Braham, and Duke Largen of Gridamas.
    
    You'll run into quite a few new enemies here. Big Crabs are very slow, but have
    high HP and defense and a deadly counterattack. Use magic to defeat them from a
    safe distance. Fairies are quick, resistant to magic, and skilled in its use.
    Fight them with physical attacks. Lycanthropes are extraordinarily fast, and
    Mandrakes boast an assortment of skills that includes buffs and healing spells.
    They should be high priority targets when they appear. The Mages are physically
    frail, but possess high MAG and RST. Higher-level monsters appear more often
    and in larger numbers deeper in the cave, so make sure you heal your party af-
    ter each battle and avoid lingering in dangerous areas.
    
    When you're ready to clear the cave, make your way to Area 3 and collect the
    Recovery Grass and Staff of Healing from the chests there. Equip Vira-Lorr with
    the staff and attach a Heal to it if you have one to spare. Another healer will
    be a welcome addition to your party.
    
    There's nothing else of interest in the area, so backtrack through Area 2 to
    reach Area 4. Open the chests to find an Alluvial Gold and a Holy Symbol, and
    exit to the northwest to reach a ledge with two chests on it. They contain an
    Intelligence Ring and Essential Arts V. Since you can't jump off the ledge,
    you'll have to take the northwest exit from Area 2 and pass through Area 5 to
    reach your destination.
    
    After a short scene in front of the altar in Area 6, you'll be thrown directly
    into a boss fight.

    * BATTLE #10                                                                  *
    *                                                                             *
    * Enemies: L10 Jumbo Cock                                                     *
    *                                                                             *
    * Strategy: Don't let its suggestive name fool you - the Jumbo Cock can be a  *
    * hard foe to beat if you don't come prepared. Its skills hit in a wide area  *
    * and can instantly flatten characters with a low DEF, and its high AGI all   *
    * but guarantees that it will strike first each turn. Its Resolve Will Power  *
    * allows it to rapidly charge its AP, so be ready to take frequent hits.      *
    *                                                                             *
    * One of your saving graces is that the cockatrice occupies a 3x3 area. It's  *
    * a nice big target, and it won't be able to move if you position characters  *
    * right next to it. That's exactly where you want to place Leo and Borgnine,  *
    * and Ellis and Vira-Lorr should stay close enough to reach them with healing *
    * spells. Fyuria and Zerva should stand wherever they must to keep the party  *
    * linked together and continually blast the Jumbo Cock with magic. Your whole *
    * party should be able to hit it for 1000+ damage each round, or more if you  *
    * have enough SP to use Extra Skills. Letting the Jumbo Cock kill a party     *
    * member or two in order to charge up your SP can allow you to punish it on   *
    * the following turn, but you may not want them to miss out on the vast EXP   *
    * it gives when defeated. Having fewer characters alive also diminishes your  *
    * overall damage output, so you may not be able to do enough damage to over-  *
    * kill the boss. If you're intent on doing so, play it safe and let Leo and   *
    * Borgnine draw the Jumbo Cock's attention until everyone has enough SP to    *
    * unload on it with Extra Skills.                                             *
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    After winning the battle, you'll be returned to the world map with all party
    members restored to full life. The monster guild will become available in town,
    and you'll be able to research new skills and exchange TP for prizes at the ad-
    venturer's guild.
    
    If you return to Area 6 of the cave, you will be able to meet the Jumbo Cock in
    random encounters. In spite of its higher level, its stats won't be as high as
    they were during the boss fight, but it's still not a foe to be taken lightly.
    Don't get caught with your pants down.
    
    IMPORTANT! The next time you return to Rigulus, visit the adventurer's guild
    and stock up on Vessels of Life. You can get them for 25 TP apiece, and in ad-
    dition to reviving slain party members with full HP, they sell for a whopping
    50,000 G each. At an exchange rate of 1 TP for 2000 G, you can easily get all
    the cash you'll need for a good long time.
    
    -> Rome Valley, North Pass
    Enemies: L8 Big Crab, L9 Lycanthrope, L10 Fairy
    
    IMPORTANT! Before visiting the next location, buy or create all the items,
    skills, and equipment you need and want. Once you finish the next battle, you
    won't be able to go back to town for a while.
    
    9. Rome Valley
    The party comes across the Dark Knight and the gunman from Zelzagun Fort, who
    Leonhardt and Zerva both remember. He identifies himself as Winfield and im-
    plores the party for help fighting off the Dark Knight. Leo warns Winfield that
    the Dark Knight is immensely powerful and urges him to flee rather than fight,
    but agrees to aid him nonetheless.
    
    You'll obtain the Vital Base field and Winfield after the cutscene, both of
    which you'll have to use in the upcoming battle. Reorganize your party and get
    psyched.

    *                                                                             *

    * Strategy: This battle is about two things: surviving, and testing your new  *
    * field. The red and blue squares on the battlefield will respectively raise  *
    * and lower the attributes of anyone standing on them, so try to position     *
    * your party members on the ones that will give them the greatest benefit.    *
    *                                                                             *
    * While the Dark Knight isn't the unstoppable killing machine he was when you *
    * fought him on the Frontier, he's still too powerful to defeat. He's highly  *
    * resistant to all forms of damage, and can counter physical attacks for 600+ *
    * damage at close range. Don't bother attacking him; just draw his attacks    *
    * with Leo and Borgnine and heal them as necessary. The battle will automati- *
    * cally end after the Dark Knight's third turn.                               *
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    At the first available opportunity, the party flees from the battle. With the
    Dark Knight pursuing them through the valley, their only choice is to keep
    moving south.
    
    -> Rome Valley, South Pass
    Enemies: L8 Big Crab, L9 Lycanthrope, L10 Fairy
    
    Winfield will be unusable in this battle, so don't forget to rearrange your
    party.
    
    -> Managua Plains, North
    Enemies: None
    
    As Winfield thanks Leo for his aid, Dyshana notices that he is wearing an odd
    bracelet. She identifies it as the Bracelet of the Covenant, the elves' missing
    treasure and the most powerful artifact ever owned by Dark Lord Summerill. The
    elves sealed it away with magic to keep it out of Summerill's hands forever,
    but the seal grew weak enough for Winfield to steal the bracelet. Summerill
    will be drawn to Winfield in search of the artifact, which attaches itself to
    the wearer's wrist. There is no known way to remove or destroy the bracelet,
    but Winfield resolves to find one as he travels with the party.
    
    From this point onward, Winfield will be usable in battle. His MAG is terrible,
    but he has high ATK and LUK and can shoot enemies from a distance with his gun.
    
    After the cutscene, you will be given the choice of three paths to follow to
    Rigulus.
    
    ==================================
    
    Take the shortest route to Rigulus
    ----------------------------------
    Major DARK shift, Fyuria +
    
    Go along the Kaystros Mountains
    -------------------------------
    LIGHT shift, Fyuria +
    
    Go as far south as possible
    ---------------------------
    Major LIGHT shift, Fyuria -
    
    ==================================
    
    I chose to go along the Kaystros Mountains. Your path will vary if you choose a
    different option.
    
    -> Indignant Hill
    Enemies: L8 Big Crab, L9 Lycanthrope, L10 Fairy
    
    -> Managua Plains, Central
    Enemies: None
    
    You'll see a cutscene of Elaine and Largen questioning the motives behind the
    Gridamas invasion of the Frontier. Elaine states her plans to head to Zelzagun.
    
    -> Kerrigan Road, West
    Enemies: L8 Big Crab, L9 Lycanthrope, L10 Fairy
    
    -> Kerrigan Road, East
    Enemies: L8 Big Crab, L9 Lycanthrope, L10 Fairy
    
    -> Harvel Pass
    Enemies: None
    
    The enemies in the next four locations will appear in groups of 6-7. They won't
    be as deadly as they were in the cave, but stay on guard all the same.
    
    -> Bensulum Alley, South
    Enemies: L8 Big Crab, L9 Lycanthrope, L10 Fairy
    
    -> Bensulum Alley, North
    Enemies: L8 Big Crab, L9 Lycanthrope, L10 Fairy
    
    -> Managua Plains, East
    Enemies: L8 Big Crab, L9 Lycanthrope, L10 Fairy
    
    -> Rigulus Bypath
    Enemies: L8 Big Crab, L9 Lycanthrope, L10 Fairy
    
    -> Rigulus
    Ah, sweet civilization! King Gunther is pleased to see that the party has dealt
    with the mighty beast from the Cave of Origin, and makes good on his promise to
    send troops to Zelzagun Fortress. Leonhardt agrees to lead Rigulus's army on
    the battlefield.
    
    The king will also permit Luana the dancer to join the party. She has high INT,
    AGI, and LUK, and fights with breakers. She comes equipped with the Steal skill
    and a Holy Symbol, a nice piece of armor that has Resist Death attached to it.
    Her Will Power, Heavenly Sense, increases the drop and steal rates of items.
    She starts off at Lv. 6, however, so you'll have to fight weaker monsters or
    keep her away from the thick of the action until she becomes stronger.
    
    Return to Harvel Pass for an event. Leo compliments Ellis and Luana on their
    hard work as the party prepares to make camp, and both Fyuria and Luana ask for
    his help.
    
    ==============================
    
    Help Luana
    ----------
    LIGHT shift, Luana +, Fyuria -
    
    Help Fyuria
    -----------
    DARK shift, Fyuria +, Luana -
    
    ==============================
    
    If you choose to help Luana, she will ask if you thought that being a popular
    dancer meant she didn't know how to cook. You can respond one of three ways.
    
    ==============================
    
    Frankly, I did.
    ---------------
    LIGHT shift, Luana +, Fyuria -
    
    Not exactly.
    ------------
    LIGHT shift, Luana +, Fyuria -
    
    I am not quite sure...
    ----------------------
    DARK shift, Fyuria +
    
    ==============================
    
    If you choose to help Fyuria, she will complain that you pay more attention to
    Ellis than you do to her. You can then ask her one of three personal questions.
    
    ==============================
    
    Ask about her age.
    ------------------
    DARK shift, Fyuria +, Luana -
    
    Ask about her childhood.
    ------------------------
    LIGHT shift, Fyuria +, Luana -
    
    Ask about Zerva.
    ----------------
    LIGHT shift, Fyuria +
    
    ==============================
    
    -> Husn Sea Route, NW
    Enemies: L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton
    
    -> Husn Sea Route, SE
    Enemies: L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton
    
    -> Kushina Valley
    Enemies: None
    
    -> Sem Coast Road, West
    Enemies: L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton
    
    -> Sem Coast Road, East
    Enemies: L5 Goblin, L6 Imp, L7 Skeleton
    
    -> Dunan Garrison
    Enemies: None
    
    -> Zelzagun Fortress, Backroad
    Enemies: L11 Mandrake, L13 Slime
    
    Finally, some new enemies! Too bad they're unremarkable. Slimes have less HP,
    DEF, RST, and AVD than Mandrakes, and their ATK is only slightly higher. If
    your party is well-leveled and well-equipped, they won't pose a threat to you.
    
    10. Return to Zelzagun Fortress
    Recommended Level: 13
    
    Leonhardt and his companions lead the forces of Rigulus against the Gridamas
    troops at the fortress. During the skirmish, Leonhardt catches sight of Marquis
    Braham, the leader of the coalition that brought down his father. He suspects
    that Largen is taking orders from Braham, leading Luana to deduce that Braham
    is the commander of the Gridamas forces. She suggests a direct assault; Leo
    charges Braham, who denounces him as a traitor and attacks him.
    
    You'll have a chance to reorganize your party before starting this battle.

    * Strategy: The soldiers on the far left and right trade HP and ATK for Fire, *
    * Wind, Power Up, and Speed Up skills and the MAG to use them well. Largen,   *
    * who has 3482 HP and Will Powers that boost the accuracy and evasion rate of *
    * allies in his extended area as he accumulates SP, is the most dangerous foe *
    * here. Braham is inferior to him in all parameters except MAG, which isn't   *
    * particularly scary considering that Fire is his only spell.                 *
    *                                                                             *
    * What is scary is the sheer number of enemies in this battle. You won't be   *
    * able to defeat either Largen or Braham on your first turn, and if the two   *
    * of them coordinate their attacks against a single target, even Borgnine can *
    * be laid low. You might be able to build up the SP needed for Extra Skills   *
    * by defeating the soldiers, but Largen and Braham are likely to kill a party *
    * member or two as you pick off their underlings.                             *
    *                                                                             *
    * There's no safe path to victory in this battle, but there is a devious one  *
    * that requires only two turns and 1-2 revival items. When the battle starts, *
    * choose one or two characters with low DEF or RST and move them up to the    *
    * enemy lines, keeping everyone else at least 4 squares away. Let the enemies *
    * kill the sacrificial lambs and save your party's AP. At the start of the    *
    * next round, move a living party member close enough to revive the deceased  *
    * with Fragments of Life, and use the SP you gained from their deaths to un-  *
    * load on Braham with Extra Skills. It's a little risky, but it works quickly *
    * and well.                                                                   *
    *                                                                             *
    * Once you defeat Braham, the battle will end at the beginning of the next    *
    * round.                                                                      *

    Braham flees when Leo offers him a chance to surrender. Largen accepts defeat
    gracefully, and Elaine soon arrives on the scene. She is disillusioned by the
    actions of Gridamas and wants to join forces with Leo. Largen then urges the
    party to march on Mudus Gate.
    
    Elaine will join your party once the cutscene ends. She fights with spears and
    has respectable ATK power. She also starts at Lv. 12, so it won't take long for
    her to catch up to the rest of the party.
    
    -> Itogi Plains, NE
    Enemies: L12 Mage, L13 Slime, L14 Mummy
    
    The Mummies have high HP and ATK, but low RST and AVD. They drop Bandages when
    overkilled, but this is difficult to accomplish without Extra Skills or strong
    coordinated attacks. You may want to save them for last.
    
    -> Itogi Plains, Central
    Enemies: L12 Mage, L13 Slime, L14 Mummy
    
    -> Itogi Plains, SW
    Enemies: L12 Mage, L13 Slime, L14 Mummy
    
    IMPORTANT! Before proceeding to Mudus Gate, make sure you have a few Fragments
    of Life on hand. They will be extremely useful in the battle to come.
    
    11. Mudus Gate
    Recommended Level: 14
    
    Elaine states that two regiments fled from Zelzagun Fortress with Braham, and
    two more are on their way from Pleuron. The gate is heavily fortified and will
    be all but impenetrable once the reinforcements arrive, but Largen points out
    that one of the regiments was once under Elaine's command. The party decides to
    attack the gate as Elaine appeals to her old troops.

    * Strategy: The two soldiers on the right are magic users, but there are no   *
    * noteworthy foes in this battle. Kill off at least two of the soldiers to    *
    * build up your SP, then use Extra Skills against the captains and finish off *
    * the remaining soldiers. You should be able to overkill most of the enemies  *
    * in this battle with ease; just remember to heal before defeating the last   *
    * one.                                                                        *

    * The only thing to be wary of here is the captains' Power Crusher, an Extra  *
    * Skill that does heavy physical damage. Try to defeat them before they save  *

    Kasibal tells Braham that spies from Zelzagun slipped in with the soldiers and
    opened Mudus Gate. Elaine approaches the two men and urges them to lay down
    their arms. Leo approaches Kasibal and shares a tense moment. A furious Braham
    once again denounces Leo and his companions as traitors who want to destroy
    Gridamas, but Leo's conviction is unwavering.

    * Strategy: Braham has become a much more dangerous opponent since your en-   *
    * counter at Zelzagun Fort, and Kasibal is no pushover either. They'll work   *
    * with each other, the captains, and the soldiers to wipe your party out with *
    * coordinated attacks, but the same tactics you used in the battle against    *
    * Braham and Largen can win the day here. Send one or two weak characters to  *
    * draw the enemies' attacks while everyone else hangs back, unload on Braham  *
    * and Kasibal with Extra Skills, use Fragments of Life to revive your fallen  *
    * allies, and repeat as necessary. The battle becomes much easier once either *
    * Braham or Kasibal is defeated, and you might be able to overkill them if    *

    Braham flees after his second defeat, promising retribution. Kasibal begs Leo
    to look after Gridamas and its people, then dies of his wounds. With this, the
    party captures Mudus Gate, which Elaine says will force Gridamas to pull back.
    
    After a much-needed rest, Leonhardt hears that King Gunther has agreed to leave
    the forces of Rigulus under his command for the time being. There has been no
    word from Gridamas for a while, but orcs and goblins have been appearing near
    the Frontier. Borgnine senses danger, saying that the Dark Knight had the same
    aura as a larva, and Largen agrees that the country has been descending into
    chaos since the Dark Knight appeared. The party decides to advance on Pleuron
    in search of answers, and must choose one of three routes to get there.
    
    =============================================
    
    Take the direct route.
    ----------------------
    DARK shift, Fyuria +, Luana & Elaine -
    
    Go around Mudus River
    ---------------------
    Major LIGHT shift, Luana & Elaine +, Fyuria -
    
    Traverse Fuvelmill Lake
    -----------------------
    DARK shift, Luana +, Fyuria & Elaine -
    
    =============================================
    
    I chose to go around Mudus River. Your route will vary slightly if you choose a
    different option. If you complete the battle after turn 75, you will be forced
    to take the direct route.
    
    -> Culvert, East
    Enemies: L12 Mage, L13 Slime, L14 Mummy
    
    -> Culvert, West
    Enemies: L12 Mage, L13 Slime, L14 Mummy
    
    -> Trosia Highland
    Enemies: None
    
    As the party stops to relax, Winfield approaches Leonhardt and advises him to
    talk to the women, who have been fighting. You must choose which one to visit.
    
    ==========================
    
    Go and see Luana.
    -----------------
    Luana +, Fyuria & Elaine - 
    
    Go and see Fyuria.

    Go and see Elaine.
    ------------------
    Elaine +, Fyuria & Luana -
    
    ==========================
    
    No matter which woman you choose to speak to, you will receive Esoteric Book I
    after the cutscene.
    
    -> Trosia Highland, North
    Enemies: L14 Mummy, L17 Lizard Man
    
    Lizard Men are essentially faster, more dangerous Mummies. Their MAG is awful,
    but they have lots of HP and ATK and the ability to counter your attacks. Use
    spells to weaken them before finishing them off with Extended or Extra Skills.
    
    -> Trosia Highland, Central
    Enemies: L14 Mummy, L17 Lizard Man
    
    -> Trosia Highland, South
    Enemies: L14 Mummy, L17 Lizard Man, L17 Specter
    
    Specters are well-rounded foes with a magical bent. They have high MAG, AVD,
    and RST, and can also float. Physical attacks are effective against them.
    
    -> Mudus River, Downstream
    Enemies: None
    
    Leonhardt finds Elaine sitting by herself at night, and they reflect on their
    childhood friendship. You may choose one of three topics of conversation.
    
    ==========================
    
    Talk about her childhood.

    Melchior rebukes Braham for his failure at Mudus Gate, though Braham blames the
    loss on Largen's betrayal. Melchior announces that he is leaving Pleuron with
    his army, and gives Braham an amulet and command of two of the Dark Knight's
    regiments as he departs.
    
    -> L'arcgi Road, West
    Enemies: L17 Lizard Man, L17 Specter, L18 Fire Spirit
    
    Fire Spirits are a pain in the ass. They have low HP, but high MAG and RST and
    insane AVD, which allows them to dodge most physical attacks with ease. They
    also float, and absorb damage from fire-based attacks as HP. Save them for last
    when they appear in battle, and annihilate them with Extra Skills after killing
    off the other enemies.
    
    -> Norligu Bridge
    Enemies: L17 Lizard Man, L17 Specter, L18 Water Spirit
    
    Water Spirits are identical to Fire Spirits, save that they utilize and absorb
    damage from water-based attacks. Fight them as you would their fiery cousins.
    
    -> L'arcgi Road, East
    Enemies: L17 Lizard Man, L18 Fire Spirit, L18 Water Spirit
    
    12. Pleuron Fortress
    Recommended Level: 17
    
    The party finds the city defended by orcs and goblins under the leadership of a
    garvel. The party finds it with Braham, who has been driven mad by bloodlust.
    Dyshana informs everyone that Braham's amulet has given him great power at the
    cost of his sanity, and that Winfield will meet a similar fate if the Bracelet
    of the Covenant cannot be removed. Winfield seems sobered by the thought, but
    Leo suspends the discussion and charges Braham and the garvel.

    * Strategy: Braham is at his best here, and is supported by the Garvel and    *
    * three powerful lackeys. All four of them boast strong physical attacks and  *
    * over 2000 HP, and even without their aid, Braham can easily kill Ellis or   *
    * Vira-Lorr in one turn. Even characters with high DEF will feel the sting of *
    * his blows.                                                                  *
    *                                                                             *
    * There are, however, a few factors that mitigate the difficulty of this bat- *
    * tle. The enemies have low RST, and most of their skills can only target one *
    * person at a time. With a little luck and careful positioning, it's possible *
    * to draw the enemies' attacks to Borgnine as the other characters focus on   *
    * dealing damage, but the "baiting" strategy from the last two battles with   *
    * Braham works well if you have one expendable character and a few Fragments  *
    * of Life. Whichever strategy you choose, you should defeat the Garvel as     *
    * soon as possible; if it flees out of your party's range, go after the Orcs  *
    * instead. Without minions, Braham becomes a far more manageable threat, and  *
    * he won't last long against a series of Extra Skills.                        *
    *                                                                             *
    * If you overkill the Garvel, you'll get a Feather Ring for your trouble. The *
    * extra point of MOV is worth it.                                             *

    With their leader defeated, the goblins and orcs flee the city and are routed
    by the soldiers of Rigulus. Dyshana concludes that the force responsible for
    organizing the horde is overwhelmingly powerful, and goes so far as to suggest
    that the goblins and orcs were conjured by dark magic. Largen remembers that a
    minor lord visited King Hertzfeldt of Gridamas and gave him a ring before the
    Dark Knight appeared. He fears that the king is being manipulated by the Dark
    Knight, and that the monstrous horde and Gridamas's war with the Frontier are
    part of a ploy to draw attention away from Summerill's hunt for the bracelet.
    Determined to save the king and unravel the Dark Knight's scheme, the party de-
    cides to go to Gridamas.
    
    -> Noriless Main Path, North
    Enemies: L18 Fire Spirit, L19 Orc
    
    Despite being higher in level, the Orcs in the field are less dangerous than
    the ones from the battle at Pleuron Fortress. They have high ATK, but they're
    slow and weak against magic. Your strategy is obvious.

    -> Grimoire Way, North
    Enemies: None
    
    -> Dordt Bach's House
    Enemies: L19 Orc, L20 Werecat, L20 Familiar
    
    The Werecats can cast wind-based and healing spells with moderate skill. Their
    AVD is very high, so physical attacks will usually miss. Magic will make short
    work of them.
    
    Familiars are floating eyeballs with good AVD, high MAG and RST, and a variety
    of dark and water spells. Physical attacks work well against them; Extra Skills
    work even better.
    
    -> Loratul Hills
    Enemies: L19 Orc, L20 Familiar

    Enemies: None
    
    Fyuria, Luana, and Elaine approach Leonhardt at night, eager to know what kinds
    of qualities he looks for in a woman. Fyuria will start by asking how he feels
    about strong-willed women.

    My heart will always stay true.

    Fyuria asks how Leo feels about inter-species marriage.
    
    =======================================
    
    Species has nothing to do with it.
    ----------------------------------

    So long as they love one another.
    ---------------------------------

    Luana asks Leo how he would feel about having a wife who could sing, dance, was
    healthy, and could still do housework.
    
    =======================================
    
    I think she would make life more fun.
    -------------------------------------
    LIGHT shift, Luana +, Fyuria & Elaine -
    
    Does such a woman even exist?
    -----------------------------
    DARK shift, Fyuria & Elaine +, Luana -

    Elaine asks if Leo would ever return to Gridamas.
    
    =======================================
    
    I cannot return.
    ----------------
    DARK shift, Fyuria & Elaine +, Luana -
    
    Yes, we must help them rebuild.

    LIGHT shift, Luana +, Fyuria & Elaine -

    Leo ends the conversation by thanking the three women for fighting at his side
    and wishing for all of them to find happiness.

    The party meets Melchior at the city gates. He is frustrated that his plans to
    manipulate the Dark Knight went awry, but pleased with the two armies that his
    former companion has assembled for him. Leonhardt accuses Melchior of being the
    Dark Knight's thrall, and tells him that bears the blame for King Hertzfeldt's
    current predicament. Melchior responds that he is acting under his own will,
    and that true soldiers must obey their king's orders without question. Leo dis-
    agrees, insisting that true soldiers must risk their lives to protect others.
    
    Unable to reconcile their differences, Melchior challenges Leo to battle and is
    joined by King Hertzfeldt. Fyuria condemns the challenge as an act of despera-
    tion, but Melchior counters that it will spare the lives of the other soldiers
    on the battlefield. The final decision is left to Leo.
    
    =============================================

    * Strategy: The two soldiers have healing spells in addition to their earth   *
    * and wind magic. Melchior has wind magic, Hertzfeldt has dark magic, and     *
    * both of them have devastating physical attacks. The battle takes place on a *
    * large preset map, which Melchior and the king can easily cross with their   *
    * MOV of 5. Victory won't come easily.                                        *
    *                                                                             *
    * The soldiers and captains are nothing more than annoyances. Defeat them all *
    * first, keeping characters with high HP and DEF close to Melchior and King   *
    * Hertzfeldt to draw their attacks. Use spells like Power Up on your physical *
    * attackers if you have them, and have Vira-Lorr and Ellis focus on healing   *
    * and reviving party members as you build up your SP. Once you have enough to *
    * use everyone's Extra Skills, unleash hell. Defeat Melchior or Hertzfeldt,   *
    * and the rest of the battle will be much easier.                             *
    *                                                                             *
    * Of course, you can also use the "baiting" strategy from the earlier battles *
    * if you remembered to load up on Fragments of Life.                          *

    King Hertzfeldt loses his finger in battle, but considers it a small price to
    pay for freedom from the Dark Knight's control. He swears that he will bring
    peace not only to Gridamas, but to Rigulus and the Frontier as well. Melchior
    pledges his support for the king's mission, and the party is about to leave the
    city in triumph when a messenger from King Gunther announces that Mudus Gate is
    under attack by beasts. The party immediately knows that the Dark Knight is be-
    hind the attack, and Melchior informs them that his former ally wants to take
    over the continent. He sends the party to the Kaystros Mountains, where he
    knows they will find the Dark Knight.

    * Strategy: This is what you've been waiting for - a battle against the Dark  *
    * Knight that you can win! He has 8502 HP, very high stats, a counterattack   *
    * that can do 900+ damage, and an Abyss Symbol that restores 12% of his HP    *
    * each round. He fights you alone, however, which makes this battle easier    *
    * than than the last few scripted encounters.                                 *
    *                                                                             *
    * If you have two characters with the Heal spell and a good strategy, you can *
    * win this battle without having to revive anyone. Send everyone with high HP *
    * and DEF up to draw the Dark Knight's attacks and wail on him with Extended  *
    * Skills. Hit him with offensive magic after healing your wounded characters, *
    * but keep your magic users at least four squares away from the Dark Knight   *
    * to avoid getting caught in his Impulse Wave. You'll have to deal more than  *
    * 1020 damage each round to outpace his HP recovery, so keep up the pressure  *
    * and use your most powerful Extended Skills to whittle him down. If you need *
    * an extra edge, take advantage of the special spaces on the battlefield.     *
    *                                                                             *
    * Once all your characters have enough SP to use their Extra Skills, the bat- *
    * tle's as good as yours. If you're going for the overkill, you may have to   *
    * chip away at the Dark Knight for another turn or two before you unload.     *

    Leonhardt's final slash sends the Dark Knight plummeting off the cliff. The
    party believes that the fall will be fatal, but Dyshana reminds Leo that he has
    one last task to accomplish before his destiny on this continent is fulfilled.
    The party proceeds to a great pillar in the mountains.
    
    15. Lucrellia
    Dyshana tells Leonhardt that five pillars must be sealed to stop the spread of
    darkness. The other four are on different continents, and Leo's descendants
    will be responsible for sealing them. Traveling between continents is normally
    impossible, but Dyshana's power can make it possible. Winfield and Ellis offer
    to help raise Leo's son, and Zerva promises that he will repay his debt through
    service. Leo thanks his companions and gets ready to choose his bride.
    
    B. Second Generation
    This chapter tells the story of Ladifour "Ladius" von Busser, son of Leonhardt
    and heir apparent of House Busser. He begins the chapter accompanied by Ellis,
    Borgnine, Vira-Lorr, Zerva, Winfield, and Vashtor.
    
    The women that Ladius can choose to marry are Valeria, Yayoi, and Sherufanir.
    
    1. Grugund Kingdom
    Ladius doubts that he is worthy to inherit the family estate, and worries that
    doing so will distract him from fulfilling his destiny. Winfield and Zerva en-
    courage him to relax, and Dyshana tells him that his destiny has only one path.
    Vashtor arrives bearing news of a rebel uprising in the Tannus Mountains, which
    are part of House Maurice's territory. Ladius leaves to discuss the situation
    with his retainers, though Vira-Lorr wonders why a house with many enemies and
    a reputation for cunning and foresight would allow a rebellion to take place on
    its lands.
    
    Ladius meets with his retainers Hailzen, Gilliam, and Hykezatt. Hailzen tasks
    him with leading a punitive force against the rebels, and refuses to discuss
    the decision with Gilliam or Hykezatt when questioned. As he prepares to leave
    the city, Ladius meets his comrade-in-arms Valeria, who asks him what he plans
    to do. He tells her that he will not disobey the king's orders, and she warns
    him not to be hasty. Ladius leaves her in charge as he departs to suppress the
    rebellion.
    
    IMPORTANT! Before leaving town, visit the adventurer's guild to get the Golden
    Warrior title. One of the rewards that comes with the title is Resurrect, a
    light skill that restores a fallen party member to life for only 16 AP. It will
    serve you well in the battles ahead.

    A rebel soldier sees House Busser's flag and immediately falls back to warn his
    compatriots. Winfield and Vira-Lorr are impressed by the rebels' bravery, but
    Vashtor thinks only of the tactical disadvantages of their position. The party
    discusses his amnesia and swordsmanship skills as he walks off, and agrees that
    he can't be trusted completely, but is better to have as a friend than a foe.

    2. Tannus Mountains
    Recommended Level: 21
    
    Vashtor fears that the punitive forces are spread too thin as Ladius approaches
    the rebels and urges them to lay down their arms. They respond by telling him
    to address the king's corruption and threatening him when he asks if vengeance
    is the answer. A woman with the ears and tail of a fox intervenes, introducing
    herself as Sherufanir as she mocks the punitive forces and protests the tax in-
    crease brought about by the war. Ladius is outraged, but Sherufanir says the
    king makes it possible by placing too much power in the hands of the nobles.
    Though Ladius sympathizes with the rebels, he will not abandon his mission, so
    Sherufanir issues a challenge: if Ladius can defeat her in single combat, the
    rebels will lay down their arms; if he loses, he must join the rebellion. Ellis
    protests, but Ladius accepts the challenge and swears in his father's name to
    honor the agreement.

    * Strategy: The soldiers on the far left and right have magic, but they pale  *
    * in comparison to Sherufanir. In addition to being deadly with her earth and *
    * fire spells, she has respectable ATK and AVD and such high AGI that she'll  *
    * almost always strike first. The captain is a stronger physical attacker and *
    * has more HP than Sherufanir, but can only hit one character at a time. The  *
    * soldiers are only dangerous if they have enough SP for their Extra Skills.  *
    *                                                                             *
    * This isn't much of a duel, but it can be very difficult if your characters  *
    * are underleveled or you're not comfortable with your party's style. You're  *
    * on a unique battlefield, and the safest place is the corner closest to your *
    * starting position. Move your characters down there and link them together,  *
    * positioning your hardiest fighters to block the path to your magic users.   *
    * Defeat the soldiers to boost your SP, heal and revive characters as neces-  *
    * sary, and take down Sherufanir as soon as you're able. She can hit several  *
    * targets at once with her magic, and is easier to overkill than the captain. *
    * The captain likes to use Power Crusher to break up your formation, but the  *
    * damage is nothing one of your tanks can't endure.                           *
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    Emerging victorious, Ladius asks the rebels to lay down their weapons. They are
    uncooperative at first, but Sherufanir persuades them to obey by promising them
    sanctuary. Ellis is annoyed with her for unexpectedly changing the terms of the
    agreement, but Ladius and others explain that it is the only way to ensure the
    rebels' cooperation. Ladius splits his forces, sending half with Vashtor and
    taking the other half and Sherufanir with him, then sets off for the capital.
    
    -> Grugund Kingdom
    Valeria meets Sherufanir and balks when asked to escort her to Ladius's villa.
    Ladius meets with his retainers, and is asked by Hailzen if the rumors that he
    has been giving commands to the rebel forces are true. Ladius denies them, but
    Gilliam says that such a serious accusation must at least appear to be treated
    seriously. Ladius is arrested and imprisoned.
    
    Sherufanir, who has learned some important information from Valeria, comes to
    visit Ladius in his cell. An army is being formed to seize Ladius's lands, and
    "Val" herself will lead it. For the sake of protecting his house, he escapes
    from prison with Sherufanir.
    
    In spite of being a fugitive, you're able to return to Grugund Kingdom and buy
    supplies at your leisure. Funny that.

    -> Sogana's Hidden Path
    Enemies: None
    
    Gilliam sneeringly dismisses Ladius as a commoner as the retainers discuss what
    to do about his betrayal. Hykezatt is skeptical of the allegations and insists
    upon an investigation, but Gilliam and Hailzen refuse him. They say the time
    for investigations has passed, and that fleeing with his army and the rebels is
    proof enough of Ladius's guilt. Despite Messina's and Hykezatt's objections,
    Hailzen decrees that Ladius's lands will be passed to the next Busser in the
    line of succession and leaves his fate in Valeria's hands.

    IMPORTANT! Before entering the next area, upgrade your equipment and stock up

    last thing you want is to run out of supplies in the middle of a fight.
    
    3. Nagigahara
    Recommended Level: 22
    
    The party overtakes Valeria's army and, after some brief deliberation, rejects
    Sherufanir's suggestion to fall back to Fensarril. Ladius meets Val head-on and
    condemns her for trying to seize his lands; she, in turn, says that no true
    lord would abandon his people to lead an army. She offers to vouch for Ladius's
    character if he returns to the capital to stand trial, but he will not flinch
    from fulfilling his destiny. Confused and upset by his stubbornness, Valeria
    orders her troops to attack.

    * Strategy: The two soldiers in the rear have wind and earth magic, including *
    * Harvest Heal. Valeria is primarily a physical attacker, but has lower DEF   *
    * than RST. Her Extra Skills are obscenely powerful and can do 2000+ damage,  *
    * even to powerful fighters like Vashtor. Deal with her as soon as you have   *
    * enough SP for your party's Extra Skills, or she'll tear you to shreds. You  *
    * can mop up her minions at your leisure once she's gone.                     *

    * If you're intent on overkilling Valeria, bring Borgnine into the battle and *
    * keep him close to her at all times. Unless Ladius has some extremely fancy  *
    * armor, only Borgnine will be able to consistently survive Val's attacks.    *
    * Heal him as necessary while building up your SP, and pray that she stays    *
    * focused on him.                                                             *

    Valeria is angered by her defeat and unmoved by Ladius's apologies, even when
    he insists that he has a destiny to fulfill. Though wounded, she picks herself
    up and orders her troops to pursue him as he marches off.

    * Strategy: Despite what the cutscene suggested, you can use a full party of  *

    When one of her soldiers informs her of Ladius's escape, Valeria orders the ar-
    my to skirt around to the south of the fen and ambush the fugitive on his way
    out. The soldier reminds Val that the fen is forever shrouded in mist, and sug-
    gests that she tend to her wounds in the capital while the army searches for a
    a local guide to lead them through the fen. Valeria accepts his proposal and
    leaves the outspoken soldier in charge of the army, hoping that Ladius will
    survive.

    Ladius regrets wounding Valeria, but Ellis and Dyshana assure him that she will
    understand when he sees her again. Dyshana and Vira-Lorr discuss their ability
    to see the future, with Dyshana admitting that she can only see inevitabilities
    and hinting that an eavesdropper is nearby. Vashtor catches sight of a curious
    young girl who comes from a village on the banks of the river Rizel. When Zerva
    asks her how the village holds up to the river's annual floods, the girl says
    her people's god protects the village. She trusts the party and offers to take
    them to her village, and after an amusing exchange between Ellis and Winfield,
    the party follows her.
    
    -> Alzai Fen, West
    Enemies: L24 Killer Bee, L26 Bone Soldier
    
    The Bone Soldiers are souped-up Skeletons with a more martial bent. They have
    high ATK and DEF, and can use Burst Hit to knock party members around and break
    up your formations. They can also counter physical attacks.
    
    -> Vessanarl Swamp
    Enemies: L24 Killer Bee, L25 Night Hound
    
    5. Old Yamato Republic
    Ryutai, a village official, greets the party and introduces the young girl as
    Yayoi. Since she is the village's most powerful priestess and she met the party
    by chance, he believes that their coming is the will of the god. Ryutai says
    the river is too swift to cross near the village, but he has heard that there
    is a ford in the Ryulent Forest. The ryulent are an extinct race whose lands
    are a mystery to everyone in the village, but Ladius is committed to finding
    the ford.
    
    Dyshana invites Yayoi to join the party, saying that her power is needed to
    cleanse the darkness. Ryutai refuses, saying she must stay in the village, but
    Zerva reveals a more sinister truth: Yayoi is to be sacrificed to the village's
    god in exchange for its continued protection. Vashtor deduces that a god capa-
    ble of accepting sacrifices has a physical form, so Dyshana and the party de-
    cide to find the god and learn how - or if - it protects the village. Ryutai
    allows Yayoi to join them, but insists that the expedition be kept a secret.
    
    Yayoi will join your party after the cutscene. She starts at Lv. 22, and comes
    equipped with a Staff of Blessing and an Ice Guard. She has very high INT and
    respectable LUK, and her other stats are reasonably good as well. She's also
    the first party member who naturally has a slot for a water skill. If you plan
    on using her, she makes a good replacement for either Ellis or Vira-Lorr.
    
    IMPORTANT! Before tackling the dungeon, stock up on Fragments of Life. You'll
    need them for the upcoming boss fight.

    The Killer Bats have amazing AGI and AVD and well-rounded stats. Magic or Extra
    Skills will dispatch them effectively. Pixies use a plethora of water, earth,
    and wind spells, and have high AVD to compensate for their pathetic DEF.
    
    This is a large dungeon, but it's rather straightforward and the enemies aren't
    quite as menacing as the ones in the Cave of Origin. The chest in Area 2 holds
    a Rising Rod, which you should collect as you pass through. There are chests to
    be found in Area 4, 5, and 6, as well; they contain an Ice Guard, a Gekko, and
    Secret Arts III. It's worth your time to find them.
    
    Reaching Area 7 triggers a cutscene. The party reaches the god's abode in the
    heart of the fen, but the god is nowhere to be seen. Borgnine senses a corrupt
    presence, and the god reveals himself. He is actually Quadmas, a twisted and
    gluttonous larva who deceived the villagers in order to get a steady supply of
    food. Dyshana realizes that he lacks the power to protect the village, and the
    starving "god" attacks the party in hopes of slaking his ravenous hunger.

    * Strategy: This corrupt larva has earth and thunder magic, but his physical  *
    * attacks pose the biggest threat. He's also equipped with an Abyss Symbol,   *
    * which restores 12% of his 12,998 HP every round. On the plus side, he oc-   *
    * cupies a 3x3 area, and his low AGI means your party will usually get to act *
    * before he does.                                                             *

    * The first thing you want to do is get your party members into formation.    *
    * Position your fighters with high HP and DEF right next to Quadmas, and your *
    * magic users far enough away that they can reach the fighters with healing   *
    * spells. Get all the characters' extended areas to overlap, use any buffs    *
    * you have, and pummel him with Extended Skills until everyone has enough SP  *
    * to use Extra Skills. You have to keep up the pressure once you start your   *
    * offensive, or Quadmas will regenerate his lost HP and punish you with his   *
    * Extra Skills. The weaker one does 3000+ damage to all adjacent characters,  *
    * and the stronger one hits a single target for 10,000+ damage, so you don't  *
    * want to be on the receiving end of either one.                              *
    *                                                                             *
    * Don't even bother trying to overkill Quadmas; it's far too risky. Finishing *
    * the battle with all your party members alive is the best you can reasonably *
    * expect.                                                                     *

    If you return to Area 7 of the dungeon after defeating the boss, you will be
    able to meet Tree Spirits in random encounters. They have powerful earth and
    light spells at their disposal, and are all but immune to magic themselves.
    Defeat their minions to build up your SP, then dispatch them with Extra Skills
    that do physical damage.
    
    Ryutai is shocked and dismayed by the destruction of Quadmas, for the legends
    foretell that a great disaster will befall the village without his protection.
    To set everyone's minds at ease, Ladius agrees to stay in the village until the
    disaster comes to pass, staking his and his companions' lives on the villagers'
    safety.
    
    -> Old Yamato Republic
    Some time later, Ryutai is relieved to find that disaster has not struck the
    village. Ladius declines Ryutai's offer of a reward for defeating Quadmas, but
    Yayoi is grateful to the man who saved her from being sacrificed and asks to
    travel with the party. Ryutai grants her request and wishes everyone well as
    they leave for Ryulent Forest.
    
    -> Alzai Fen, SW
    Enemies: L26 Bone Soldier, L26 Killer Bat, L27 Gremlin
    
    Gremlins use physical attacks and the occasional dark skill against your party.
    They have well-balanced stats, but they aren't much of a threat.

    Enemies: None
    
    Winfield and Zerva lament being lost in the forest, and Vashtor is worried that
    the party will have to return to Yamato. Ladius insists that they keep moving
    forward when the party hears a strange voice. Much to everyone's surprise, the
    speaker reveals himself as a willowy humanoid taller than Borgnine, with skin
    like bark and hair like leaves. He tells them that he is a ryulent, and is able
    to hide in the forest because he is one with it. He is particularly intrigued
    by Vira-Lorr, since the onerthes are as rare as his own race. The ryulent in-
    troduces himself as Arbol and agrees to lead the party to the ford they seek,
    but he has another stop to make first.
    
    You will receive Esoteric Book II and the Sorcery Place field after the cut-
    scene. Arbol will also join your party. He starts at Lv. 24 and comes with a
    Spiked Hammer and Earth Guard. His stats are well-balanced, and he has thunder
    and earth skill slots.
    
    Return to the forest for an event with Yayoi. She sees that Ladius has not been
    eating, and offers him some onigiri. He finds it delicious, and she tells him
    that it is normally made from seaweed and shrimp. Since these things are not
    available in the forest, she used marinated leaves in place of seaweed and asks
    Ladius to guess what she used in place of shrimp.

    Arbol leads the party to a secret grove where the last of the ryulent survive.
    Elder Misselkanui explains that the ryulent will endure as long as there are
    trees and plants in the world, but the same cannot be said for the endangered
    onerthes, syrium, and high elves. Arbol and Misselkanui sense the approach of
    humans, which the party immediately knows to be the Grugund army. Fearful for
    the safety of Yamato, Ladius decides to confront the army and persuade them to
    leave the village in peace, but Vira-Lorr doesn't think it will be that simple.

    The general of the Grugund forces advocates burning Ladius and his followers
    out of the forest. Ladius and Ellis arrive just in time to stop him, and the
    party lures the enemy into the forest.
    
    IMPORTANT! The next three battles will be surprise attacks, so your characters
    and the enemies will be randomly positioned around the battlefield. The first
    thing you want to do each time is cluster your party members together, then
    pick off the magic users and let the other foes come to you. Use a small field
    (like Vital Base) and characters who can form links from a distance to make
    things easier on yourself.

    The party is beginning to tire, but Ladius insists that surrender is not an op-
    tion. The general again orders his troops to set the forest on fire, but they
    are thwarted by a ryulent attack. Ladius takes the initiative and launches a
    counteroffensive.

    * Strategy: Four of the soldiers can use earth and wind magic. The lieutenant *
    * is essentially a beefed-up captain. Kill him before he has enough SP to use *
    * Kikou Sho, and this battle will be about as hard as the last one. If you    *
    * save the lieutenant for last, either spread your party out or be ready to   *

    Ladius thanks the ryulent for their help. The party expects the Grugund army to
    return with more seasoned troops, so they decide to move on to Fensarril and
    let the ryulent protect the forest. Just then, Misselkanui sees the bracelet on
    Winfield's wrist and identifies it as the Bracelet of the Covenant. The ryulent
    elder does not know how to remove it, but posits that the high elves who live
    in "the land closed off by ice" might be able to help. Misselkanui gives Arbol
    permission to travel with the party so that he may explore the world, choose a
    final resting place, and give life to a new forest.

    The Werewolves have above average STR and high AGI and AVD. Iron Scissors have
    laughable AGI, but they make up for it with high HP, ATK, and DEF. Make liberal
    use of magic when fighting them.
    
    This is a small dungeon with fairly simple enemies and some nice treasure. Note
    that the path from Area 2 to Area 4 is actually in the northwest corner of the
    area, slightly south and west of the path to Area 1.
    
    The chest in Area 2 contains Basic Smithing. There are three chests in Area 3,
    in which you can find a Hard Shell, a Shield Sword, and the Fireball spell. The
    chest in Area 4 contains a Platinum Bullion, and don't miss the one in Area 5
    on your way to the exit. It contains Forbidden Tome I, which will allow you to
    animate Leonhardt, Fyuria, Luana, and Elaine as marionettes at the alchemist's
    guild in town.
    
    -> Alba Cape
    You'll emerge here after making your way through the Ancient Forest. You can
    enter Area 5 of the forest from here, and will have to pass through it again if
    you want to return to Yamato.

    9. Renda Town
    Zerva advises Ladius to supplement the dwindling ranks of his army with some
    local troops, but Ladius declines, saying he does not want to force people to
    follow him. Ellis informs him that a horde of orcs and goblins is camped along
    the southern coast, which the army of Fensarril will take some time to reach.
    Ladius is reluctant to put his army at risk by helping, but Arbol recalls that
    a woman who recently came across a large sum of money left for the south coast
    alone. Winfield is eager to follow the wealthy woman, but Ellis fears a trap
    and Vashtor favors heading northwest to Fensarril. The final choice is left to
    Ladius.

    The party meets Sherufanir, the mystery woman Arbol mentioned in town. She says
    that she got tired of waiting for Ladius in Fensarril and decided to scout the
    area, and admits to being guilty for the army's pursuit. Ladius bears her no
    ill will, and Sherufanir invites herself into his party, convinced that fate
    brought them together again. After introducing herself to Yayoi and brushing
    off Winfield's advances, she says the horde's fortress looks small and poorly
    defended and leads the party to it.
    
    Sherufanir will join your party after the cutscene. She fights with daggers,
    has high AGI and INT, and starts at Lv. 25. Depending on how you equip her, she
    can be effective as either a supporting fighter or magic user.

    Though the horde is larger than it was when Sherufanir first saw it, there are
    few enough orcs and goblins for Zerva and Winfield to suggest a full frontal
    assault. Vashtor and Ladius notice that the horde is well-organized, and decide
    to break the enemy's morale by slaying the garvel.

    * Strategy: This battle is quite simple. The Garvel can take a lot of punish- *
    * ment, but it's not threatening as long as it doesn't save up enough SP for  *
    * Kikou Sho. The other enemies are nothing more than cannon fodder. Defeat    *

    With the garvel dead, the orcs and goblins flee. The party savors the victory,
    and decides to let Fensarril's army deal with the remaining monsters.
    
    You will be able to take one of two routes back to Renda.

    Ladius sees Sherufanir sneaking off at night and must decide whether or not to
    follow her.

    Do not follow her.

    Follow her.

    LIGHT shift, Sherufanir +
    
    =========================
    
    If you don't follow her, the event ends. If you follow her, Ladius will tail
    her to a meadow, where he hears some animalistic sounds. Thinking a monster is
    nearby, he draws his weapon, but Sherufanir steps out of the shadows. She says
    that she loses the ability to think rationally during the full moon, but is
    flattered that Ladius was worried about her. She then asks if he would like to
    be her "partner" for the night.
    
    =========================
    
    But of course.
    --------------

    Be stern with her.
    ------------------
    LIGHT shift, Yayoi +, Sherufanir -
    
    Remain neutral.

    the troops in Ladius's army.
    
    After the cutscene, you'll receive the following rewards:

    Valeria ponders the logistics of attacking Fensarril and reasons that delaying
    the invasion will allow her troops to make better preparations. She questions
    Fensarril's role in the border disputes and wonders what Hailzen hopes to gain
    by invading them. She instructs her general to set up camp for the night with
    plans to cross the mountains in the morning.

    11. Republic of Fensarril
    Ladius meets with Magistrate Mullentz to petition for his troops' citizenship.
    Mullentz is aware that Ladius is a criminal, and the situation in Grugund has
    aroused his suspicion. He knows that the Grugund army has crossed over Andorra
    La Vella into Fensarril territory, and that many of Ladius's followers were
    once soldiers of Grugund. If Fensarril's forces leave the city to repel the in-
    vaders, they may stage a revolt. Ladius permits Mullentz to investigate him as
    a show of good faith, but Mullentz has already conducted an investigation. He
    also knows that the death of Duke Howell is a pretext for Grugund's invasion.
    Mullentz does, however, offer to make Ladius's troops citizens of the republic
    if they fight in its defense. Ladius accepts his offer, and marches his troops
    to the vanguard of the army to meet the Grugund forces in battle.

    King Balzac confers with his son Urian, who is sending half of the supplies re-
    quested by Grugund. Balzac tells the prince of his plan to make Grugund aware
    of how much they need his kingdom's support, which he will use as leverage if
    Grugund and Fensarril don't destroy each other first. Prince Urian voices his
    concerns about accepting help from someone who is not human and his fears that
    their mysterious ally is using them, but Balzac assures his son that their ally
    is the one who is being used. He reminds Urian that a king - like their ally -
    is more than a mere mortal, and is unfit to rule if he does not behave as such.

    Vashtor notices that the Grugund forces' defense is superb and that they have
    the high ground, but an optimistic Winfield notices that they are outnumbered
    by Ladius and the Fensarril forces. Vira-Lorr fears that the battle will be a
    costly one, but Vashtor and Winfield believe that a swift, decisive victory is
    possible.
    
    As Ladius advances, he runs into Valeria, who accuses him of defecting and con-
    spiring to invade Grugund. Ladius insists that he risked much by traveling to
    Fensarril and that he is fighting to defend the republic, but she is unwilling
    to listen to him. Sherufanir further enrages Val by saying that she and Yayoi
    are Ladius's soul mates. Convinced that he has betrayed his homeland for women,
    Val swears to kill Ladius herself, and the party prepares to do battle as she
    orders an all-out attack.

    Valeria curses her troops as they break formation and flee. She promises that
    Ladius will not escape her next time and withdraws, much to the surprise of
    Winfield. Zerva points out that some of the troops were not obeying her orders,
    and Vashtor remembers seeing some of them fleeing for Furyum Daryl. The party
    considers following them, but decides to return to the capital first.
    
    -> Breeze Hill
    Valeria reports back to Hailzen and asks why he gave her men from Furyum Daryl.
    He and Gilliam evade her question, but insist that they know how to handle mil-
    itary affairs and that they are acting on the king's will. Val blames her loss
    on the disorganization of her troops, but Gilliam suspects her of deliberately
    showing Ladius leniency and subtly threatens her when she protests. A disap-
    pointed Hailzen temporarily suspends Val's command and declares himself supreme
    commander of the Grugund forces until she is reinstated. Val leaves to take a
    rest, and Hykezatt asks if it was necessary to punish her so harshly. Hailzen
    stands by his decision and refuses to tell Messina what he plans to do as the
    supreme commander. As Hykezatt leaves the chamber, Hailzen calls a war council.
    
    -> Fensarril Republic
    Mullentz is surprised to hear that men from Furyum Daryl were fighting with
    Grugund, but he immediately knows who is responsible. Ladius says that it is
    his destiny to deal with the mastermind personally, and requests that Fensarril
    refrain from launching any attacks against Grugund until he finishes. Mullentz
    accepts, and advises Ladius that the mastermind is a scoundrel, but his son is
    a good man who may be willing to aid their cause.

    An event will trigger when you first try to enter the dungeon. While leading
    the party through the mist-shrouded forest, Ladius asks everyone to stay close
    together to avoid getting lost. Arbol, who can sense the locations of people
    within the forest, says that Yayoi has strayed from the path, so Ladius waits
    for her to return and asks her where she was. She apologizes, saying that she
    found a vine that can be used to tell someone's fortune. She performs a reading
    for Ladius, and asks him to choose one of three pieces of the vine.

    After the event, you'll be free to explore the dungeon. Among the new enemies
    in it are Mandragoras, which have high HP and ATK, Harvest Heal, and a variety
    of other earth skills; and Mieshas, which are extremely fast, great with magic,
    and automatically evade any physical and magical attacks with less than 100%
    accuracy when they're low on HP. The encounter rate here seems to be a little
    higher than in previous dungeons, but with the exception of the Mieshas, the
    monsters are more annoying than threatening.
    
    The chest in Area 1 contains Essential Arts IX. Take the lower exit to reach
    Area 2 and collect a Harvest Heal and Secret Arts IV from the chests there,
    then take the upper exit and open the chest in Area 3 to find a VIT Up. Area 4
    contains Essential Arts X, and you can find Secret Arts V on your way to the
    exit in Area 5.
    
    -> Visionary Forest
    You'll emerge here after making your way through the Closed Forest. You can
    enter Area 5 of the forest from here, and will have to pass through it again if
    you want to return to Fensarril.
    
    -> Syriumville
    Enemies: None
    
    The party tells Sharona, the village chieftain, that they are going to Furyum
    Daryl and will need her help to reach the capital unseen. Sharona, eager to be
    free from the restrictive life of a chieftain, agrees to guide the party there
    personally on the condition that she is allowed to remain with them. Ellis and
    Winfield worry about how the village will fare without Sharona, but her young
    valet Malitz assures everyone that it will only be a temporary inconvenience.
    Sharona mentions that orcs, goblins, and a garvel have been spotted near Furyum
    Daryl, but begins preparing a feast and insists that the party stay and meet
    the villagers before continuing on their way.
    
    You will receive Esoteric Book III and the Fundamental field after the cut-
    scene. Sharona will also join your party. She's a magic-oriented character who
    fights with breakers and has an extra skill slot. She starts at Lv. 28, and is
    initially equipped with a Quick Turn and a Thunder Guard.

    Enemies: L31 Mandragora, L31 Mummy Man

    Enemies: None
    
    Zerva observes that the people have absolute faith in their king, but Sharona
    suspects that fear drives them more strongly than loyalty. The people say that
    the king will protect them from the orcs and goblins, but Dyshana warns the
    party that creatures of darkness can never exist harmoniously with mankind - if
    they have not attacked the city, it is because a great power is holding them at
    bay. Just then, Prince Urian approaches the party and tells them to come to the
    castle, declining to answer questions. The party meets King Balzac, and Ladius
    asks him if his soldiers from Furyum Daryl were fighting on the side of Grugund
    during the invasion of Fensarril. Balzac confirms this, arguing that he could
    not deny Grugund's request for support and ordered them to disguise themselves
    as Grugund troops to avoid making their involvement known. The prospect of war
    between Grugund and Fensarril does not concern him, but he does not want it to
    spill over into Furyum Daryl. He denies any knowledge of the orcs and goblins
    or their strange behavior, and remains smug and evasive after Sharona points
    out that they have been spotted entering and leaving the castle. Urian escorts
    the party outside, and returns to listen to his father's plan to overcome the
    Dark Knight.
    
    Ladius, uncertain about what to do next, decides to return to Grugund. Ellis is
    incredulous, but Vira-Lorr says they will formulate a plan as they march.

    15. Kotuy
    Ladius talks to the party and learns that Grugund is reachable from their cur-
    rent location. Sharona suggests inviting the rebels to join their cause, but
    Vashtor fears they will tip their hand early and be scattered. The party infers
    that Grugund is desperate and will spread its forces thin by invading Fensarril
    while suppressing the rebellions. Ladius concludes that a coordinated assault
    with the rebels will catch Grugund off-guard and leaves to confer with them.

    Yayoi asks Sherufanir about the outcome of the conference with the rebels. She
    and Winfield credit Ladius for how smoothly everything went, but Ladius says
    they will need the support of the Neira rebels to stand against Grugund. He
    also asks Vashtor to send messages to Hykezatt, Messina, and Valeria; Winfield
    does not believe that contacting Val will benefit the party, but Ladius knows
    that she disapproves of the duke's methods. Even if she refuses to help the
    party, she will not betray them.

    Valeria replies to Ladius's message, warning of him of the expedition against
    Fensarril and informing him of her intentions to defect to his ranks. Sharona
    and Zerva are skeptical of her intentions, but Ladius believes her and Winfield
    encourages him to move against Grugund. Ladius chooses the foot of the Tannus
    Mountains as a staging ground and orders Vashtor to assemble the troops there.
    
    -> Kishuna Road Fork
    
    Valeria meets with Ladius and informs him that the bulk of Furyum Daryl's army
    is pushing toward Fensarril. She reports that Hykezatt and Messina are still
    working with her, and the party prepares to strike against Hailzen.

    An event will trigger as you enter the city. Messina and Hykezatt meet with
    Ladius and his allies, telling them that Hailzen and Gilliam are hiding deep
    within the castle. Hykezatt plans to secure the area around the castle while
    Ladius goes inside to find the usurpers. Gilliam panics as the castle burns,
    but Hailzen is confident that the Royal Guardsmen will repel the attackers.
    
    There's some nice treasure in Area 3. The second room is empty, but you can
    find a chest that contains a Feather Ring in the first room and two more chests
    that contain a Hawk Eye and a Charm of Force in the third room.
    
    Area 4 is chock full of treasure. Go through the first door to find chests that
    contain a Sharp Sense and a Recovery Herb, the second door to find chests that
    contain a Refresh Herb and a Samson Ring, and the third door to find a corridor
    that leads to chests containing an INT Up, a Stone of Life, and an Issen.
    
    The path splits in three directions in Area 5. Take the middle path first to
    find a chest with a Resurrect in it, then follow either of the side paths
    through Area 6. Don't forget to take the Platinum Bracelet from the chest by
    the door.
    
    Hailzen and Messina await in Area 7. Hailzen insists that a war with Fensarril
    will be good for Grugund's economy, but Ladius urges him to turn his troops
    against Furyum Daryl and King Balzac's army of orcs and goblins. Hailzen dis-
    misses the suggestion and insults Ladius's companions, provoking him to battle.

    17. Return to Andorra La Vella Peaks
    Recommended Level: 35
    
    Ladius and his allies meet Mullentz at the peaks to discuss the best way to
    deal with Furyum Daryl. As Mullentz and Sherufanir discuss how much of a threat
    they pose without the support of Grugund, Vashtor reports that the forces of
    darkness are mobilizing. Sharona reports that Furyum Daryl is also moving,
    leading the party to surmise that the dark army's attack is meant to intimidate
    Grugund and Fensarril. Ladius volunteers to deal with the dark forces while
    Mullentz deals with Furyum Daryl's army. Arbol and Yayoi warn their leader that
    a beast not unlike the one from Yamato is traveling with the orcs and goblins,
    though it feels pure rather than twisted.

    * Strategy: Nothing too special. Kill a Bull Orc to build up your party's SP, *
    * then take down the Garvel before it has a chance to use Kikou Sho and deal  *
    * with the remaining peons. Make sure you heal up before finishing the fight. *

    * Strategy: This is a surprise battle, so there's an element of luck at work  *
    * here. The Garvels don't have Kikou Sho, but they can still do some pretty   *
    * serious damage if they use Extended Skills with their allies. Try to take   *
    * at least one of them down early on, then focus on the Goblin Mages, who can *
    * damage characters in a large area with Evil Omen. The Bull Orcs hardly pose *
    * a threat compared to the other foes, so save them for last.                 *

    * Strategy: This is another surprise battle, and it's a far cry harder than   *
    * the last two. The Goblin Mages have wind- and water-based skills, and both  *
    * of the Garvels have Kikou Sho. They all pale in comparison to the Dragon,   *
    * which has 17,507 HP and an array of powerful physical and fire skills. On   *
    * the bright side, it's not very agile and has low RST - just pray that it    *
    * never uses Breath of Fire on you.                                           *
    *                                                                             *
    * Frightening as the Dragon is, you want to kill its subordinates first. Pick *
    * a character to be the decoy, then have him or her distract the Dragon while *
    * the others defeat the Goblin Mages and Garvels (in that order). When only   *
    * the Dragon remains, keep it occupied by putting one character to its back   *
    * or front and one to its side, then use your strongest magical skills on it. *
    * Since it flies, avoid using earth-based skills as much as possible.         *
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    Vira-Lorr posits that the dragon's appearance is a sign that the power of the
    darkness is growing. Dyshana proposes a strike at the source of the darkness,
    and Mullentz lends some Fensarril troops to aid Ladius and his forces.

    King Balzac tells Prince Urian that the turnover of Grugund's leadership and
    Fensarril's isolationist policies have eliminated the need for war. The prince
    worries that enlisting the aid of demons has forever lost Furyum Daryl the
    trust of the other nations, but Balzac offers to let his son kill him to redeem
    his country's image. With respectful words and a promise that he will not fol-
    low in his father's footsteps, Urian takes Balzac's head.
    
    If you return to the area, you will see an event with Sherufanir and Ladius in
    the camp. She asks him if he ever gets tired of fighting and suggests that they
    run away together. When he says he's never considered the possibility and that
    fighting is his world, Sherufanir says that she hates his world and lauds him
    for being able to convince people that they can create a conflict-free world.
    He reflects on why he is so driven to change the world and promises that he
    will come to Sherufanir first when he is ready to run away.
    
    This event will result in a LIGHT shift and increase Sherufanir's affection.

    All three of the women will ask Ladius questions here. Valeria asks him what he
    thinks of a focused, driven woman with a temper.
    
    ==================================================
    
    It is good to know what one wants.
    ----------------------------------
    Minor DARK shift, Valeria & Yayoi +, Sherufanir -
    
    The temper could be a problem...
    --------------------------------
    Minor LIGHT shift, Sherufanir +, Valeria & Yayoi -
    
    ==================================================
    
    Sherufanir asks Ladius if he would ever feel comfortable relying on a woman.
    
    ==================================================
    
    Of course, if she is dependable.
    --------------------------------
    Minor LIGHT shift, Yayoi & Sherufanir +, Valeria -
    
    I could never rely on a woman.
    ------------------------------
    Minor DARK shift, Valeria +, Sherufanir & Yayoi -

    ==================================================
    
    If it is not imitation cooking.
    -------------------------------

    I am not sure about eating raw fish...

    ==================================================
    
    Valeria asks Ladius how he would feel about having daily fencing practice.
    
    ==================================================
    
    Why not?
    --------
    Minor DARK shift, Valeria & Sherufanir +, Yayoi -
    
    No, we would not want to overdo it.
    -----------------------------------
    Minor LIGHT shift, Yayoi +, Valeria & Sherufanir -
    
    ==================================================
    
    Sherufanir asks if Ladius has ever been interested in a woman. (Cheeky!)
    
    ==================================================
    
    I think mostly of battle, not women.
    ------------------------------------
    Minor DARK shift, Valeria & Sherufanir +, Yayoi -
    
    Not really...
    -------------
    Minor LIGHT shift, Yayoi +, Valeria & Sherufanir -

    Yayoi asks Ladius whether he would choose a small box or a large one.
    
    ==================================================
    
    I choose the large one.
    -----------------------

    I choose the small one.
    -----------------------

    ==================================================
    
    Valeria asks what Ladius would think of a woman who has been in love with him
    since she was a little girl.
    
    ==================================================
    
    I would hope to return her feelings.
    ------------------------------------
    Minor LIGHT shift, Valeria & Yayoi +, Sherufanir -
    
    I would not know what to do.
    ----------------------------
    Minor DARK shift, Sherufanir +, Valeria & Yayoi -
    
    ==================================================
    
    Sherufanir asks how Ladius what Ladius would think about a woman who wanted to
    forget about war and live peacefully with him.
    
    ==================================================
    
    That sounds nice.
    -----------------
    Minor DARK shift, Sherufanir +, Valeria & Yayoi -
    
    I have a destiny I must fulfill.
    --------------------------------
    Minor LIGHT shift, Valeria & Yayoi +, Sherufanir -
    
    ==================================================

    =================================================
    
    I think you can change your destiny.
    ------------------------------------

    of good faith, King Urian offers himself up as a hostage.

    * Strategy: He's much stronger than he was in the last generation, but he no  *
    * longer regenerates HP. He does, however, have Kikou Sho, Hellfire Slash,    *
    * some dangerous physical and dark skills, and a counterattack that can do    *
    * 2000+ damage. His high INT and AGI mean that he'll usually strike first, so *
    * be ready to fight reactively rather than proactively. Distract him with     *
    * physical attackers while your mages hang back and fight with spells. Double *
    * Needle is good for lowering his VIT and increasing the damage he takes from *
    * physical attacks, and Power Burst can be useful for knocking him back and   *
    * avoiding his counterattacks. Heal as needed and try to make sure that he    *
    * can't hit too many of your party members with Kikou Sho, and you'll be able *
    * to fell the Dark Knight in due time.                                        *

    The Dark Knight withdraws as the party tires, leaving everyone to wonder if
    Ladius could have beaten it. He does not believe he is strong enough to slay
    the Dark Knight, but Dyshana reminds him that his family's power is growing and
    that surviving is sufficient for now. The party leaves the fortress as Yayoi
    observes that the darkness has dissipated.

    Winfield, Vira-Lorr, Ellis, and Sharona bid Ladius a somber farewell as he pre-
    pares to choose his bride and seal the second pillar.
    
    C. Third Generation
    This chapter tells the story of Thoma, son of Ladius and shameless flirt. He
    begins the chapter accompanied by Ellis, Borgnine, Vira-Lorr, Zerva, Winfield,
    Vashtor, Arbol, and Sharona.
    
    The women that Thoma can choose to marry are Lavinia, Faina, and Noah.
    
    1. Maralinga
    As the chapter begins, Thoma teases Ellis and Borgnine, and Winfield wonders
    whether or not "that old man" is trustworthy. Arbol assures him that he is a
    reliable source of information, and Sharona proposes that the party travel to a
    town in the south to find out more about the goings-on on the continent.

    Arbol mentions that there is a city of elves on the continent, but much of the
    surrounding land is covered in ice. Winfield adds that an invisible wall sur-
    rounds the elven city, and that it is impossible to find one's way through the
    forest surrounding the city without an elven guide. Thoma shares rumors of a
    female elf who could guide the party, and leads his companions off to find her.

    * Strategy: The Cat Ladies are old hat by now. The Army Bees have low HP and  *
    * very low DEF and RST, but very high AVD. The Tyrant can both take and deal  *
    * out a great deal of physical punishment, but is slow and has low RST. Kill  *
    * the bees first so they can't boost the other enemies' physical damage with  *
    * their Thrust Will Power. Go for the Cat Ladies next, then turn your party's *
    * full strength against the Tyrant. If you have at least one strong healer in *
    * your party, the decoy strategy works well against it.                       *

    Dyshana interrupts the men's introductions to ask the elf woman to guide the
    party to the City of Elves. She initially refuses, but reconsiders when Thoma
    tells her about the cursed bracelet that Winfield wears. In exchange for some
    coins, she agrees to take the party to the village gates, but warns them that
    they will have to find their own way in.
    
    Lavinia will join your party after the event. She is a front-line fighter who
    uses swords and has a dark skill slot, and comes equipped with an Owl Rapier
    and Battle Frame.

    Late at night, Winfield encourages Thoma to approach Lavinia. The young man

    Before entering the forest, you will see an event. Arbol revels in being sur-
    rounded by snow-covered trees, but Vashtor does not share his appreciation for
    the scenery. Lavinia mentions that she uses a "ripple" in the world to guide
    the party through the forest, but neither Ellis nor Zerva can feel it. Arbol
    feels that the forest is trying to tell him something, but becomes uneasy when
    he observes that the trees have had their voices sealed away.
    
    This dungeon can really be a doozy, both because of its inhabitants and its
    layout. Garms have high STR and AGI and an assortment of thunder skills, and
    can counter your attacks. All of the spirits float, have high RST and AVD, and
    specialize in spells of their respective elements. Cold Gels have well-balanced
    stats and respectable RST, and the Tyrants are even stronger than the ones you
    fought when you met Lavinia. Even worse, the forest is laid out like a maze,
    and retracing your path will often land you in a different area than the one
    through which you entered. The map above is accurate only when moving from a
    lower-numbered area into a higher-numbered one, so wander with caution.
    
    As you explore the forest, be sure to grab Medium Equipment I from the chest
    near the entrance. You can also find Essential Arts XIII and a STR Up in some
    chests in the southeast corner of Area 2, Medium Weapons II in Area 5's chest,
    and the Forbidden Tome II and Beast Ring in the chests in Area 3 (which can be
    reached through the exit in the northwest corner of Area 2). Be warned that
    Tyrants spawn in pairs in Area 3; they can be extremely dangerous on your first
    visit, but you can hunt them for Heart Stones if you come back after gaining
    several levels.
    
    In Area 6, Lavinia informs the party that the City of Elves is nearby. As Thoma
    and Winfield charge ahead, she talks to Ellis and reveals that she is a dark
    elf, feared and hated by other elves. Ellis convinces her to travel with the
    party, despite Lavinia's warnings that her services do not come cheap, and a
    hidden eavesdropper emerges from behind a tree as they walk away.

    Recommended Level: 40
    
    As Ellis tries to persuade Lavinia to come inside the city with everyone else,
    the eavesdropper from the forest approaches. Lavinia identifies her as Faina,
    who says that she had to come and see her sister. She brings Lavinia and the
    party to the home of their father, Mervis, who says that the Bracelet of the
    Covenant Winfield wears is the most powerful of Lord Summerill's talismans.
    It was forged by greers and nelths and imbued with magic by high elves, and
    could grant divine power to its wielder if harnessed properly. This, Mervis ex-
    plains, is why Winfield has stopped aging, but it will eventually transform him
    into a gurg, or dark knight. He goes on to explain that the dark knights were
    once larvae, but were bathed with Summerill's power and bound to his will. If
    Winfield wants to avoid this fate, he must find a greer and nelth to recreate
    Hass Calinou's Hammer - the same talisman used to forge the bracelet - and dip
    it in the blood of a high elf. Mervis surmises that the greer and nelth will be
    willing to help the party, but they will still need to find a rare material to
    craft the hammer. He then invites the party to stay at his house for the night.
    
    Later, Lavinia and Faina talk outside, and Lavinia voices her anger at their
    father for leaving their mother, who has sealed herself away from the world.
    Ellis and Thoma then run up to them, warning them of a joint attack on the city
    by the humans, orcs, and goblins. Lavinia prepares to join the counterattack
    while Faina flees to safety.
    
    IMPORTANT! The next three battles are surprise attacks. Keep this in mind as
    you arrange your party and choose your field.

    A young elf blames Lavinia for the dark forces' attack on the city, but Thoma
    says that the Bracelet of the Covenant drew them to Lus Soleil. In spite of
    Mervis confirming what he says, the young elf continues to demand that Lavinia
    leave the city and gets sternly rebuked by Thoma. Lavinia bids her father a
    frosty farewell as the party prepares to depart.
    
    -> Icy Galleria
    As the party travels through the forest, Ellis tells Thoma that he reminds her
    of his father. Lavinia proposes heading north to avoid the forces of Musoi, and
    reveals that she has been following the party. Lavinia objects to letting her
    join, but Vira-Lorr supports the idea, arguing that Faina has the capacity to
    make her own decisions.
    
    Faina will join your party after the event. She has high INT and LUK, and comes
    equipped with a Platinum Rod and Dream Hazard.
    
    After recruiting Faina, go northeast, then go northwest twice to escape from
    the forest.
    
    -> Lyril Coast
    Enemies: L41 Thunder Spirit, L41 Wind Spirit
    
    -> Visra Channel
    Enemies: None
    
    Lavinia does some scouting and reports that the goblins and orcs are numerous
    enough to have built a fortress. She offers the party a choice between heading
    west toward Ku Kaatje, which is safer; or heading north toward Tweda Forest,
    which is closer to both the fortress and the homes of the nelth and greer. She
    leaves the choice in Thoma's hands.
    
    ======================================
    
    We go forward, like true men.
    -----------------------------
    Major DARK shift, Lavinia & Faina +
    
    We must live to fight another day.
    ----------------------------------
    LIGHT shift, Lavinia +, Faina -
    
    Perhaps something different?
    ----------------------------
    Major LIGHT shift, Faina +, Lavinia -
    
    ======================================
    
    I chose the first option. If you do the same, you will be presented with a
    short path to a fortress; otherwise, you will have to take a longer path to
    reach Ku Kaatje.
    
    IMPORTANT! If you choose the first option, you won't have a chance to return to
    town until you clear Zamul Fortress. Make sure you're well-prepared before you
    commit to this course of action.

    Recommended Level: 41
    
    Winfield and Thoma feel discouraged as they stare down the massive enemy force,
    but they realize that fighting is their only option. Spurred by encouraging
    words from Faina and sarcastic ones from Ellis, they leap into battle.

    Lavinia and Ellis are displeased with Thoma's decision to assault the fortress,
    but Faina is somewhat more defensive of him. Borgnine and Arbol destroy the
    fortress while the rest of the party rests.

    Lavinia tells the party of Paillene and Twulan, the homes of the nelth and the
    greer, which lie to the north and east respectively. She lets Thoma decide
    where they will go first.

    I chose to make for Paillene. Your route will vary if you go the other way.
    
    -> Tweda Forest, NW
    Enemies: L40 Lamia, L43 Mab
    
    Lamias have well-balanced stats and a variety of water spells, as well as Black
    Mist and Wind. Mabs have very high MAG, RST, and AVD, along with Harvest Heal
    and a vast repertoire of wind, thunder, and dark spells. Overkill them for 
    Sloughs of Snake and Fairy Rings.

    8. The City of Paillene
    An old nelth named Macmuth explains that his people can craft accessories, but 
    can only adorn weapons and other large items. He sends the party to Twulan and 
    tells them of a spring beneath Aulis Lake that holds the Spirit Water, which 
    is needed to craft the hammer. At Dyshana's request, he also introduces them to
    Plum, a self-assured young girl who claims to be the city's best adorner. She
    jumps at the chance to be an ambassador for Paillene, and joins the party on
    their quest with Macmuth's blessing. She has high INT and LUK and comes with a
    Luna's Wand and a Marine Rouge, and her earth and water skill slots make her a
    flexible spellcaster.
    
    After this event, you will receive Esoteric Book VI and the Happy Time field,
    and the paths to Aulis Lake and Twulan will open. I chose to visit Aulis Lake
    first.
    
    -> Digon Old Path, West
    Enemies: L40 Lamia, L43 Mab, L45 Phantom
    
    Phantoms have high MAG and RST and an assortment of dark, water, and thunder
    skills. They also have Magic Barrier, which allows them to evade all damage 
    from spells that have a chance of missing when they're low on HP. Overkill them
    for Banishing Charms.
    
    -> Digon Old Path, East
    Enemies: L40 Lamia, L43 Mab, L45 Phantom
    
    IMPORTANT! Stock up on revival items before tackling the next dungeon. You'll 
    need them for the boss.

    As the party takes in the refreshing sights, Plum explains to them that the 
    Spirit Water lies in a series of underground tunnels that connect Aulis Lake 
    with Palaminus Lake. The entrance to these tunnels becomes accessible at low 
    tide, but will fill with water again when the tide rises. The party prepares to
    enter the tunnel as Thoma ponders how much his allies respect him.
    
    When you first enter Area 2, the party will encounter a young woman with blue 
    hair. She introduces herself as Noah and asks what business the party has in 
    the cave, to which Thoma replies that he is looking for an item to defeat the 
    Demon King. Noah excitedly joins the party, calling after "Trauma" to hurry up 
    as she charges forth. Following her lead soon gets the party lost in the 
    caves, causing Ellis to deduce that Noah has no sense of direction. Noah pro-
    motes an annoyed Lavinia to party leader and invites her to escort the party to
    their destination.
    
    After the event, Noah will join your party. She is a well-rounded fighter who
    comes equipped with an Inescapable Grasp and a Hard Shell. You will also re-
    ceive Esoteric Book V and find yourself at the southwest entrance to Area 4. 
    Grab Secret Arts VII and a STR Up from the chests there, then head to Area 3 
    and open the chest to find a White Frame. Visit Area 2 for a chest that con-
    tains an INT Up, and grab the chest in Area 5 as you pass through it to find 
    an Advanced Heal. Get the Ogre Claw from the chest in Area 6, and venture into 
    Area 7 to find a Power Up+ and Medium Weapons III.
    
    In Area 8, the party will encounter a squid-like spirit that Borgnine insists 
    on destroying at any cost. Thoma draws his weapon and prepares for battle.

    * Strategy: This beast has 49,306 HP and is equipped with an Abyss Symbol,    *
    * which will restore 12% of its HP each turn. It has immense ATK and a few    *
    * different water and earth skills and absorbs water-based attacks, but its   *
    * size and speed work against it. Send three characters up to surround it and *
    * stop it from leaving the corner, and position your mages where they can     *
    * heal the tanks without exposing themselves to the Devil Tentacle's attacks. *
    * Once everyone is in place, start attacking with Extended Skills to build up *
    * your party's SP, healing and reviving party members as needed. When your    *
    * whole party has around 150 SP, unload on the Devil Tentacle with everyone's *
    * least costly Extra Skills, and keep doing the same each turn. You'll lose a *
    * few party members, but keep reviving them with Resurrection or Fragments of *
    * Life and whittling the beast's HP down. As long as it can't hit more than   *
    * one of your tanks and you have enough revival items to spare, you should be *
    * able to slay the squid after six or so turns of attacks.                    *

    After the battle, the party claims the Spirit Water and makes plans to head to
    Twulan, which you can reach by following the short road through the Sanini 
    Highland or the long road through the Loray Ard Hills. Though Plum warns the 
    party that the tunnels will soon fill with water, you can return to Aulis Lake 
    at any time.
    
    -> Sanini Highland
    Enemies: L45 Phantom, L45 Golem
    
    Golems have massive amounts of HP and ATK, powerful physical skills, and the 
    ability to counter your attacks. Take them down before they're able to use 
    their Extra Skills, or they'll flatten your party.

    10. Twulan City
    Ganz, the best blacksmith in town, welcomes the party to the underground city
    of Twulan. He has heard of their quest and claims that he is able to craft Hass
    Calinou's Hammer, which Plum can then adorn. After exchanging verbal jabs, they
    set out to find the rest of the materials they need to begin their work.
    
    After the event, you will receive the Gravity field and Ganz will join your
    party. He's a spear wielder with high STR and VIT, and comes equipped with a 
    Damascus Spear and a Guard Frame.

    11. The City of Aulis
    King Reinbach considers the party's visit to be a welcome departure from the 
    monotony of his normal schedule and informs them that they need Tlalocan's per-
    mission to enter Mulan's Gem Cave in the north. He also mentions that the road 
    is overrun by monsters from Gilga Zeyon, which the party can avoid by using his
    ship to cross Palaminus Lake. He gives them a message for King Mercer of 
    Lyonrendas and discusses the recent increase in monster attacks with Ganz, 
    hoping that cooperation will allow them to vanquish the monsters.
    
    Replenish your items and upgrade your equipment in town before setting out.
    
    -> Palaminus Lake, South
    Enemies: L45 Phantom, L46 Devil Tentacle
    
    The Devil Tentacles here aren't as strong as the one in Aulis Lake, but they 
    can still do 4000+ damage with Tentacle and 8000+ damage over a large area with
    Impulse Wave. Spread your characters out so they can't all be hit at once.
    
    -> Palaminus Lake
    Enemies: None
    
    -> Palaminus Lake, North
    Enemies: L45 Phantom, L46 Devil Tentacle
    
    12. Lyonrendas
    King Mercer explains that having the trade routes blocked is problematic for 
    the city's economy, and fears that an attack from Gilga Zeyon will come soon. 
    Ganz urges him to ask for Reinbach's aid in a preemptive attack, and Mercer 
    reveals that Midas of Tlalocan will offer his support. Thoma resolves to reach 
    Tlalocan while he still has a chance of receiving permission to enter Mulan's 
    Gem Cave, and Mercer tells him that he will either need to travel northeast 
    through the monster-infested Ginnunga Canyon or northwest through the rebel-
    laden Ewabarl Shivan to reach the city. The choice is left to Thoma.

    ============================================
    
    I chose to pass through Ewabarl Shivan. Regardless of which route you choose, 
    stock up on supplies before you depart.
    
    IMPORTANT! If you spend some time capturing and combining the monsters you 
    fight in the next several battles, you can create Angels and Mucranes, then
    combine them to create a Luijt. These botanical beasts start at Lv. 91 with
    over 16,000 HP and 105 INT and LUK, making them absolute terrors in combat.
    They can also be traded in for Resurrection, which revives slain characters
    with 50% of their maximum HP and sells for 30,000 G.
    
    -> Adebart, South

    The party is contemplating the ease of their journey through the canyon when a 
    rebel approaches them and urges them not to go to Tlalocan. Without giving the 
    party a reason, the rebels attack them as they attempt to pass.

    Midas, the consul from the event at Eureka Plains, greets the party and laments
    that the canyons limit his city's contact with the southern lands. He is more 
    than happy to honor Dyshana's request for access to Mulan's Gem Cave, but he
    asks them to do him a favor first. He discusses the logistics of moving troops
    south past the rebels of Ewabarl Shivan, and requests that the party deal with
    them. Ellis asks for Thoma's input.

    Ganz and Plum have different ideas about how to approach the rebels, who send 
    their young commander Alberti to treat with the party. He maintains his in-

    party when they refuse to heed his words.

    * Strategy: The Hooligans are more or less the same as the ones you fought    *

    * dark skills. He frequently dodges physical attacks, so take down a couple   *
    * of the Hooligans to build up your party's SP before attacking him with your *
    * Extra Skills. The rest of the Hooligans will be easy prey without a leader. *

    The defeated Alberti orders the rebels to throw down their weapons and pleads 
    Thoma to release them. As Winfield binds Alberti, one of the rebels reveals 
    him to be the leader of Tlalocan's Imperial Guard. He accuses Consul Midas of 
    framing him and allying with monsters in preparation for an attack on 
    Lyonrendas - as soon as King Mercer allows Tlalocan's troops into his lands, 
    they will turn on him. With no way to determine whether or not his captive is 
    telling the truth, Thoma warns the rebels not to cause problems in his absence 
    and escorts Alberti back to Tlalocan.
    
    -> Tlalocan City of God
    Consul Midas thanks the party for capturing Alberti. Before handing him over, 
    Thoma asks if he was fairly tried for his crimes and wonders if Midas's 
    daughter Nastassja can shed some light on the circumstances surrounding 
    Alberti's punishment. Midas refuses to let her speak; he insists that making 
    such a request of a citizen would be an abuse of his power and threatens to 
    revoke his permission to allow the party into Mulan's Gem Cave. Suddenly, 
    Nastassja enters the chamber and shows the party her bracelet, which resembles 
    the Bracelet of the Covenant and was placed on her wrist by the dark knight to 
    ensure her father's cooperation. Midas insists that his daughter is lying and 
    has her removed from the chamber, but Thoma believes her. He chooses to retain 
    custody of Alberti, assuring the consul that he will make the disgraced guard 
    captain cut ties with the rebels and stay far away from Nastassja. As Thoma 
    leaves to fulfill his promise, Midas rallies his forces and prepares to march 
    on Lyonrendas.

    Thoma releases Alberti, who requests his aid for an attack on Tlalocan. Ganz
    and Vashtor do not think the party and the rebels could stand against an army
    of thousands, but Thoma suggests that Alberti accompany the party to Lyonrendas
    instead. He agrees, and heeds Thoma's suggestion to be more relaxed.
    
    After this event, you will receive Esoteric Book VIII and the Hypnotic Field
    field. You will also be joined by Alberti, an agile dagger wielder who comes
    equipped with a Sword Breaker and a Bracelet of Feicui.

    Thoma meets up with Noah at night and notices her collection of treasures.
    Though they look foreboding to him, she says that serve as mementos of her
    adventures and all the emotions she experienced while undertaking them. She
    tosses him a golden statue and a crystal ball, which zap Winfield with light-
    ning and scorch him with fire as Thoma handles them. As he examines a third
    trinket, he notices a switch on its back.

    of spreading the troops too thin, and Winfield asks for Thoma's opinion on the

    As the party savors their victory over the forces of darkness, King Reinbach
    calls an audience with Thoma. He tells him that the monsters are marching on
    Musoi and Lus Soleil, neither of which is prepared for an attack. Lavinia
    blames herself for inadvertently helping the forces of darkness discover the
    City of Elves, but Thoma accepts that he is fated to fight these creatures and
    places the blame on himself. He vows to help his friends protect their home-

    * Strategy: The corrupted consul has 69,382 HP, high ATK and RST, and a bevy  *
    * of physical skills. He also absorbs earth damage, can counter your attacks, *
    * and has an Abyss Symbol, so he'll regenerate HP each turn. Expect a very    *
    * hard fight.                                                                 *

    * Midas has several attacks that hit everyone around him, so spacing is of    *
    * the utmost importance here. Send a tank up to distract him, and make sure   *
    * the rest of your party stays at least three squares away from the tank so   *
    * they can't be hit by the consul's Kikou Sho, Phoenix Strike (which will do  *
    * 10,000+ damage in a circular area), or Seven Stars Blast (which will do     *
    * 25,000+ damage in a rectangular area). Revive the tank as s/he falls, then  *
    * get your party members back into formation immediately. After stockpiling   *
    * at least 250 SP, wait for Midas to perform his action, then go all out on   *
    * him with your Extra and Extended Skills. Do it again at the beginning of    *
    * the next turn, and you should be able to finish him off before he acts. One *
    * mistake can spell disaster in this fight, so don't start attacking until    *
    * you're certain that your party members have all the SP and AP they need to  *
    * fully deplete Midas's HP. Winfield's Hold Shot is good for stealing items   *
    * and buying some time, and if you have Vashtor and Borgnine in your party,   *
    * Void Scream works especially well.                                          *

    * If you can't do enough damage to kill Midas after a couple of all-out at-   *
    * tacks, go and build your party members up to Lv. 50 and use some of the     *
    * Proofs of Valor you've been collecting. The additional AP and Extra Skills  *
    * you get for doing so will help tip the balance in your favor. This is one   *
    * of the hardest fights in the game, so don't be ashamed if you have to do    *
    * some grinding to win.                                                       *

    Mortally wounded, Midas laments his weaknesses and confesses that he colluded
    with the Dark Knight to protect and strenghten Tlalocan. He begs the party to
    protect his daughter and gives Alberti the key to Mulan's Gem Cave before he
    dies.
    
    Soon after the party's victory, Reinbach and Mervis meet up with them. Mervis
    fears that the Meteor Ore will not be able to remove the curse on Nastassja,
    who tells the party that it was placed on her by a frightful monster that re-
    sembled Borgnine. Dyshana holds out hope that the Meteor Ore may be able to re-
    move the curse, and the party leaves for the cave to recover the ore.

    Garudas are large floating monsters with high HP, AGI, ATK, and AVD and a fair
    number of fire and wind skills. Angels are floating monsters with high ATK and
    AVD, Light Heal, thunder skills, and a powerful counterattack. They also absorb
    holy attacks, and drop Holy Water when overkilled. Mucranes have low HP, but
    they command a vast array of spells and have extremely high AGI, AVD, and RST.
    Use Extra Skills to take them down after building up your party's SP.
    
    Aside from the monsters, you can find a fair bit of treasure in this cave.

    After the battle, the party gathers enough Meteor Ore to forge Hass Calinou's
    Hammer and break the curse on Nastassja. Thoma resolves to attack Magna Val
    while Mervis tries to counteract the curse.
    
    -> Bak Mui
    Late at night, Thoma's potential brides approach him and state a desire to know
    more about him. Lavinia begins by asking if Thoma's behavior is a facade, which

    Borgnine senses that the commander of the dark forces is another larva, which
    Vashtor identifies as a durga. He explains that larvae are gods which lose some
    of their power when they are summoned to the mortal realm, and durga maintain
    more power than most larvae. Reinbach hesitates to assault the fortress of such
    a powerful being, so Thoma leads his companions into battle against it.

    * SP. Once you have at least 200 SP for everyone, go all out with your most   *

    The dying durga mocks Thoma and his companions, saying that they are nothing
    compared to its master and that darkness is right beside them. As his allies
    ponder the words of the dying larva, Thoma asks Alberti to stay with Nastassja
    and suggests that his child will be able to help Winfield break the bracelet's
    curse. Vashtor lags quietly behind the group as they leave the fortress.
    
    23. Fendias
    Winfield and Alberti bid Thoma a fond farewell, and Plum and Ganz promise to
    take care of the situation on the continent as he prepares to choose his bride
    and seal the third pillar.
    
    D. Fourth Generation
    This chapter tells the story of Duran, son of Thoma and sharp-tongued defier
    of destiny. He begins the chapter accompanied by Ellis, Borgnine, Vira-Lorr,
    Zerva, Winfield, Vashtor, Arbol, Sharona, Plum, Ganz, and Alberti.
    
    The women that Duran can choose to marry are Hildegard, Silvi, and Ryuryu.
    
    1. Cape Town of Nillea
    Duran responds coldly to Winfield's assurances that the pirates will show up. A
    female pirate interrupts their conversation, calling Duran's party a circus and
    introducing herself as Captain Hildegard of the Death-Cross Pirates. She agrees
    to take the party to the Ioros Islands as they requested, but only if they show
    their determination by bringing her a Marfile fruit. She directs them to the
    Bibrest Mountains, where she has heard that such fruits grow, and advises them
    to find one before her offer expires. Alberti suggests that they look for more
    information in Pirrene, a town to the west.
    
    Replenish your items and upgrade your equipment before setting out.

    Enemies: L52 Cerberus, L52 Orc Mage

    Upon investigation, the party learns of a town called Tenedos located to the
    south and a harpuia woman who was bound for the town. Vira-Lorr observes that
    most harpuia live in the Bibrest Mountains, so the party decides to follow in
    her footsteps.

    Recommended Level: 50
    
    The party meets a rabbit-like humanoid while trudging through the hills. She
    suspects them of being bandits and prepares to fight them, but is attacked from
    behind by a band of orcs and goblins. As she turns her aggressions toward them,
    the party decides to lend her a hand.

    The rabbit girl compliments the party's fighting prowess, but Duran insists
    that she leave them alone. The rest of the party tells her of their search for
    the Marfile fruit and the harpuia. She invites herself along on their quest and
    introduces herself as Qua. She is an agile pugilist who starts at Lv. 48, and
    comes equipped with Mithril Knuckles and a Mithril Bracelet.
    
    You will receive the Deadly Gamble field after this cutscene.
    
    -> Jean Lulun Way
    Enemies: L52 Cerberus, L52 Orc Mage
    
    3. Tenedos City
    The party arrives in town just after the harpuia leaves, and Dyshana comments
    that they will never be able to catch her if they follow the same route she
    did. Qua offers an alternate route, and Alberti reveals that all of his in-
    quiries about the Marfile fruit have led back to the harpuia. Vashtor and Ganz
    do not think the party has time to chase after her and suggest looking for the
    fruit on their own. Winfield leaves the decision in Duran's hands.
    
    IMPORTANT! If you want to get the Forbidden Tome III and revive Thoma, you must
    choose the second option here. If you don't, you'll be unable to access the
    Bibrest Mountains until the end of this generation.

    As their name implies, Magic Lords are powerful spellcasters who know a wide

    Qua and Plum begin to wonder if the party will ever find the Marfile fruit on

    allies' concerns.

    This is a relatively straightforward dungeon, but you'll have to do a lot of
    jumping to scale the cliffs. As you work your way through it, be sure to grab
    the LUK Up and Bloody Sword in the southeast corner of Area 2 and stop by Area
    4 to collect an AGI Up, a Sonic Gun, and Forbidden Tome III. Don't miss the

    -> Cannus's Tear
    Enemies: None
    
    Arbol discovers a Marfile fruit, but it is growing out of the party's reach. As
    they try to puzzle out how to collect it without damaging the surrounding area,
    a harpuia flutters down and offers to pick it for them. In return, she exacts
    a promise from them to keep the location of the fruit a secret. She introduces
    herself as Silvi and confesses that she loves the ocean when Dyshana wonders
    what brought her all the way to Tenedos. Fascinated by the harpuia's curiosity,
    Dyshana invites her to join the party, and Silvi gratefully accepts. Before
    leaving, she insists on stopping by her village to tell her family, and leads
    the party there.
    
    After this event, Silvi will join your party. She starts at Lv. 50, has high
    STR and AGI, and comes equipped with an Estoc and a Mithril Bracelet.
    
    -> Voeli Zeil Plank Road
    Enemies: L52 Gigantes, L54 Magic Lord, L55 Basilisk
    
    Gigantes are large, slow enemies with high ATK and DEF and huge pools of HP.
    Turn your Extra Skills on them after defeating the monsters that appear with
    them.
    
    -> Phoenix Wing Fortress
    Enemies: None
    
    A harpuia named Keith is opposed to letting Silvi go on her journey, insisting
    that she is needed more at the fortress. Vira-Lorr talks him out of attacking
    the party, and Dyshana assures him that Duran will be able to purge the dark-
    ness from the continent.
    
    -> Cape Town of Nillea
    Duran presents Hildegard with the Marfile fruit, and the pirate captain agrees
    to let the party sail with her until they find a Rainbow Shard. She mentions
    that she needs to make a quick detour as the party leaves to board her ship.
    
    After this event, Hildegard will join your party. She is a gunner who starts at
    Lv. 50, has high STR and VIT, and comes equipped with a Mithril Gun and a
    Mithril Bracelet.
    
    -> Bool Burn Course 1
    Enemies: L56 Lost Pirate
    
    High HP and ATK, low RST, mostly use physical skills, can't be captured.
    
    -> Bool Burn Course 2
    Enemies: L56 Lost Pirate
    
    -> Cittilia Channel
    Enemies: None
    
    Duran strikes up a conversation with Hildegard while she stares at the waves.
    He hesitates when she asks him if he would like to try riding the waves and
    gets defensive when she calls him a coward. She eventually goads him into doing
    it, and admits afterward that she had fun despite being scared.
    
    After this event, the Link Gauge will shift toward DARK and Hildegard's affec-
    tion will increase.
    
    -> Bool Burn Course 3
    Enemies: L56 Lost Pirate
    
    -> Bool Burn Course 4

    -> Oriana Waters
    Enemies: None
    
    Vira-Lorr invites Plum to drink with her, leading the young nelth to experience
    a pleasant, dreamlike state. This event unlocks CG #96.
    
    -> Bool Burn Course 5
    Enemies: L53 Sea Bat, L54 Death Killer Bee
    
    Both of these monsters have average HP, high STR and AGI, and the ability to
    fly. The Sea Bats also have respectable RST and Harvest Heal. Overkill the bats
    for Coral and the bees for Needles of Death.
    
    -> Geminia Cape
    Enemies: L53 Sea Bat, L54 Death Killer Bee
    
    5. Jalfa Fortress
    Enemies: None
    
    Hildegard warns the party that everything they see should be kept secret, and
    that they will not survive if they betray her trust. She introduces them to a
    young man named Kilik, one of several orphans who found a home and a sense of
    purpose with her crew. She leaves a broad-shouldered man named Vlady in charge
    of the crew and discusses the party's destination with them. Rumor has it that
    yulishees can be found at Crystal Lake in the east or around an island to the
    south, but the party may be able to gather more information at Rabat Salle in
    the west. Duran concludes that the party must visit all three locations.
    
    Three paths will open after this event, which you are free to traverse in any
    order. I chose to go to Rabat Salle first.
    
    -> West Linotor Sea
    Enemies: L53 Sea Bat, L54 Death Killer Bee, L56 Demon
    
    Demons are well-rounded flying spear wielders that have a counterattack and a
    mix of dark, fire, thunder, and physical skills. They absorb fire damage and
    are more vulnerable to physical attacks than magical ones. Overkill them to get
    Devil's Tails.
    
    -> West Linotor Sea Gate
    Enemies: L53 Sea Bat, L54 Death Killer Bee, L56 Demon
    
    -> Simnil Bay, North
    Enemies: L53 Sea Bat, L54 Death Killer Bee, L56 Demon
    
    -> Simnil Bay, West
    Enemies: L53 Sea Bat, L54 Death Killer Bee, L56 Demon
    
    6. City of Rabat Salle
    The party asks a man of the sea where yulishees can be found. He advises them
    to search Nymph's Bath, a lake on an island to the east, but warns them that
    the journey there is dangerous.
    
    A new path will open when you leave the town. Stock up on supplies before
    departing.
    
    -> Simnil Bay, South
    Enemies: L56 Demon, L59 Water Pudding
    
    Compared to the other monsters you've been meeting, Water Puddings are nothing
    special. Bear in mind that they absorb water-based attacks, and overkill them
    for Alkahests.
    
    -> Simnil Bay, East
    Enemies: L58 Devil Cancer, L59 Water Pudding
    
    Devil Cancers have high HP and ATK and mainly utilize physical skills. Attack
    them with (anything except water) magic for best results.
    
    -> Nymph's Bath
    Enemies: None
    
    Most of the party is awestruck by the beauty of the lake, but Winfield is dis-
    appointed that he cannot find a nymph. The rest of the party comments on his
    declining health and disturbed sleep, and resolves to do something to help him.
    
    After this event, you will receive the following rewards:
    
    Divine Branch
    Unicorn Horn
    Moon Fragment
    50 PP
    
    You can then return to the area to see an event that involves Qua rubbing sun-
    screen on Ellis at the beach, which unlocks CG #97.
    
    -> Wonlutota Sea
    Enemies: L57 Cockatrice, L58 Devil Cancer, L59 Water Pudding
    
    Cockatrices are large, agile, flying monsters with a huge pool of HP and a wide
    range of physical and wind skills.
    
    -> Lerolli Waters
    Enemies: L58 Devil Cancer, L59 Water Pudding, L61 Mandrake Root
    
    Mandrake Roots are large floating monsters with respectable AGI, extremely high
    INT, and a variety of powerful holy and earth spells. Use physical attacks and
    Extra Skills against them.
    
    -> Pirate's Point
    Enemies: None
    
    -> Gunilu Bay
    Enemies: L53 Sea Bat, L54 Death Killer Bee, L56 Demon, L57 Cockatrice

    -> Tarllaphon Sea, East
    Enemies: L53 Sea Bat, L54 Death Killer Bee, L56 Demon
    
    7. Crystal Lake
    Enemies: None
    
    The party sees no signs of the yulishee, but is approached by a young nelth
    traveler. His name is Fer, and he describes himself as "the world's greatest
    treasure hunter." He admits to becoming stranded on the island, but is not
    consistent in describing who or what attacked his ship. He does, however, know
    that the party needs the Rainbow Shard, and agrees to help them search for it.
    
    After this event, you will receive Esoteric Book XVII and the Hazardous Kingdom
    field, and Fer will join your party. He starts at Lv. 52, has high AGI and LUK,
    and comes equipped with an Attack Command and a God of Wind.
    
    -> City of Rabat Salle
    The man of the sea insists that the party just missed the yulishees at Crystal
    Lake. Fer mentions that the lakes of the Ioros Islands are all fed by the
    ocean, making it likely that the nymphs were at sea. Duran grows tired of the
    wild goose chase, but Hildegard swears to continue helping the party until they
    complete their quest.
    
    -> Crystal Lake
    Upon returning to the lake, the party finds a woman with green hair and ears
    like fins. She introduces herself as Reverie the yulishee and says that she'll
    be happy to help them find the Rainbow Shard, but will have to petition Colom
    to give it to them. She explains that Colom is the place where yulishees gather
    and tells the party where it is, but expresses interest in seeing the carnival
    at Halulu Atea first. The decision of what to do is left to Duran.

    =================================
    
    I chose the first option. Your route will vary if you choose a different one.
    
    After this event, you will receive Esoteric Book XIV and the Wild Coliseum
    field, and Reverie will join your party. She is a well-balanced character who
    starts at Lv. 52, has high VIT and INT, and comes equipped with a Crystal Spear
    and an Ice Fang. Appropriately, all of her Extra Skills are water-based.
    
    -> Copenia Coast
    Reverie experiences her first storm and gains a new respect for the surface
    dwellers who have to endure them. This event unlocks CG #98.

    Enemies: L56 Demon, L59 Water Pudding

    8. Halulu Atea
    The party is unable to find the carnival until an oracle follower approaches
    them and asks if they have come to have Ryuryu tell their fortunes. Reverie
    mentions that this would be a rare opportunity for a reading, piquing the in-
    terest of Qua and Plum, and the follower tells them that they can find Ryuryu
    to the southeast of town. Duran is indifferent, but he grants his companions
    permission to see the oracle.
    
    -> Mitdiroll Forest Land
    Enemies: L46 Garuda, L52 Cerberus, L52 Gigantes
    
    Giganteses have low INT and AGI, but vast amounts of HP and very high ATK and
    DEF. Use magic or Extra Skills against them.
    
    -> Legenda Castle
    Enemies: None
    
    As the party discusses questions that they would like to ask, Ryuryu expresses
    an interest in reading Duran's fortune. He tries to decline, but Vira-Lorr ac-
    cepts on his behalf, whispering to Sharona that she wants to test Ryuryu's in-
    sight. Ryuryu sees three women at his side: one a pirate, one with wings, and
    one of no consequence. When pressed by Hildegard, she reveals that one of the
    women will become Duran's partner, then reveals herself as the mystery woman.
    She also reveals that she offered herself up to the demons in a nearby fortress
    to save the other islanders from their wrath. At Dyshana's behest, she agrees
    to join the party if they can save her from being sacrificed.
    
    -> Rip Cape
    Enemies: L58 Devil Cancer, L61 Mandrake Root

    9. Eriswil
    Recommended Level: 57
    
    The party meets Lox, a hulking husward who plans to marry and devour Ryuryu.
    Winfield offers himself to the brute in place of the fortune teller, but Lox is
    not interested in bargaining. Vashtor seems to recognize him, and Ryuryu jumps
    to the party's aid as they prepare for battle.

    * Strategy: What Lox lacks in speed, he makes up for in strength. He's got    *
    * 61,378 HP and an Abyss Symbol, and he supplements his arsenal of physical   *
    * skills with Thor Hammer, Crimson and Lightning Attack. The Goblin Mages     *
    * have Refresh, Sanctuary, and some water and wind spells, and the Bull Orcs  *
    * are little more than free SP. Use a tank to keep Lox trapped in his corner  *
    * while you kill off his minions, then use spells to chip away at his HP and  *
    * build up your party's SP you're ready to blast him out of existence with    *
    * your Extra Skills. Lox's Ground Breaker will do 45,000+ damage, so keep the *
    * rest of your party away from the tank until they're ready to unleash hell.  *
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    After the battle, Winfield notices Vashtor's smoldering rage and Ryuryu keeps
    her promise, pledging her life and loyalty to Duran's party. Alberti proceeds
    to wipe out the rest of the dark army, and the party razes the fort.
    
    Meanwhile, Vashtor meets with a mysterious figure and warns him that "they" are
    aware of his plans. He instructs the figure to remain hidden for the time being
    and goes to answer Ellis's call.
    
    After the cutscene, you will receive Esoteric Book XV and Ryuryu will join your
    party. She is a powerful spellcaster who starts at Lv. 52, and comes equipped
    with a Death-Scythe and a Thunder Emperor.
    
    -> Halulu Atea
    Duran and Zerva have a discussion about fate and why the syrium have chosen to
    follow the Spirit Vessels from one continent to the next. Silvi finds them as
    they are talking, and Zerva asks her to keep Duran company while he attends to
    a matter elsewhere. With a little bit of prodding from Silvi, Duran decides to
    ask one of the fortune tellers whose predictions will be most accurate.

    While the party rests, Sharona angers Duran by telling him not to pretend to be
    stronger than he is. Ryuryu approaches him and tells him that he is treated
    like a child because he acts like one. When he mocks her and questions her
    fortune-telling ability, she invites him to ask her a question of his choosing.
    
    ===============================================
    
    Tell my fortune.

    -> City of Rabat Salle
    Duran explains the purpose of his journey to Ryuryu, leading her to confess
    that she feels uneasy following him and has difficulty trusting him completely.
    He becomes defensive, insisting that she cannot understand him or the fate that
    he will suffer. Vira-Lorr chides him lashing out at Ryuryu, and Hildegard urges
    the fortune teller not to treat Duran like a tool. Silvi reminds Duran that he
    can call on the strength of his companions at any time, leaving him at a loss
    for words.

    Later, Zerva and Winfield try to offer Duran some reassurance, but he remains
    closed off to his male allies.
    
    10. Nymph's Bath
    Reverie petitions a yulishee named Landa to give the party the Rainbow Shard,
    but Landa warns that the shard could threaten the whole world if it fell into
    the wrong hands. Ganz and Ellis explain to her that they need Hass Calinou's
    Hammer to destroy the Bracelet of the Covenant, but Landa is not convinced and
    gets berated by Winfield for being selfish and petty. Fer argues that treasures
    should be shared rather than hoarded, and Reverie agrees to lead the party to
    the Rainbow Shard in spite of Landa's objections.

    Most of the enemies here look familiar, but there are a couple of new ones.
    Gargoyles are small, quick fliers with high ATK and a mix of physical, wind,
    and dark skills. Eyes of Devil are flying spellcasters that mainly use dark
    magic, though they also have Temperor, Sanctuary, Earth Needle, Impulse, and
    Atomic Hole.
    
    As you work your way through the dungeon, visit Area 2 and open the two chests
    there. The one in the northwest corner contains a Sword Breaker, and the one in
    the southeast corner that contains Adv. Weapons III. Be sure to procure the
    Orichalcum from the chest in the southeast corner of Area 2, the Marine Rouge
    and Secret Arts XII from the chests in Area 5, the Blizzard from the chest in
    Area 6, the STR Up+ from the chest in Area 7, and the Oboro and Secret Arts
    XIII from the chests in Area 8, as well.
    
    In Area 9, the party encounters a giant squid that has succumbed to the magical
    charms of the Rainbow Shard. They have no choice but to fight it.

    * for your party's SP to build up, and unloading on it with Extra/Extended    *

    The party is unable to find the Rainbow Shard after the battle, leading Reverie
    to deduce that Landa took it. Vashtor is prepared to fight the yulishees for
    the shard if necessary, and Dyshana urges the party to remember that the ends
    justify the means. Reverie, however, intends to try diplomacy first.
    
    -> Nymph's Bath
    Landa does not receive the party warmly and is not forthcoming with information
    about the Rainbow Shard, leading Vashtor to threaten to slaughter the people of
    Colom. She agrees to hand over the shard if the party destroys the fortresses
    that the demons have built at Villers le Lac and Konolfingen.
    
    You can attack the fortresses in either order. Villers le Lac is closer, so I
    visited that one first.
    
    -> Jalfa Fortress
    Hildegard asks for Duran's help retrieving some materials from a storehouse in
    the back of a cave before a storm. She cannot send anyone else into the store-
    house because she is the only one with the key. Duran is left to choose how he
    will respond.

    Vashtor reports that the dark forces had amassed and were continuing to collect
    raw materials. The party resolves to attack the next fortress before it can
    build up a strong defense.
    
    If you return to the fortress, you will see an event in which Duran reacts
    negatively to Winfield's suggestion that the party rest and tell stories over
    tea. He overhears the women discussing what gave him such a dour outlook on
    life when he collapses, then stands up and begins lavishing them with praise
    and compliments. Ryuryu performs an exorcism that restores Duran to normal.
    
    Meanwhile, Winfield reveals that Duran's strange behavior was caused by a
    Soulbind Elixir, which transported his consciousness into the youth's body.
    Dyshana berates Winfield for using the elixir and encourages him to be less
    reckless, but commends him for helping to breach the walls between Duran and
    his possible brides.
    
    After this event, the Link Gauge will shift toward DARK and all three women's
    affection will increase.

    * Strategy: This a surprise fight, and the first one in which you encounter a *

    With both fortresses destroyed, the party decides to leave further monitoring
    of the islands to the yulishees and the pirates and goes to collect the Rainbow
    Shard from Landa.
    
    -> Nymph's Bath
    Since no one else in the party knows how to handle the Rainbow Shard properly,
    Landa entrusts it to Reverie, who has been exiled from Colom and will remain
    with the party. She expresses no regrets, saying that she knew the risks when
    she agreed to help the party. With all the materials to craft Hass Calinou's
    Hammer in hand, Winfield wonders what life will be like without the Bracelet of
    the Covenant attached to his wrist. Ellis thanks Landa, and Reverie wishes her
    well as she departs.
    
    Hildegard says that she will soon leave the party, but invites them to stay at
    her fortress and relax before returning them to the mainland.
    
    -> Pirate's Point
    Hildegard realizes that a tsunami is coming and flees toward high ground, but
    the party gets swept away when it hits. Duran regains consciousness on the
    shore and calls to one of the women, who he sees lying nearby.

    Knowing that the party's camp is located close to some hot springs, Winfield

    best weapon, armor, accessory, and skills you have available. She will have to
    fight a Lv. 61 Garvel alone, and if she loses, it's game over!
    
    The party stops to rest at the fortress, and Ellis notices that Duran looks
    sickly and feels feverish. He passes out, and Dyshana informs the party that he
    will die if they cannot find a cure for him soon. Silvi says a Marfile fruit
    would help Duran; she has found one nearby, but only she can reach it. Ryuryu
    warns her that darkness lies ahead, and sure enough, Silvi sees a garvel while
    flying at night. Not one to be deterred, she slays it and returns with the
    Marfile fruit, which allows Duran to make a speedy recovery.
    
    After this event, the Link Gauge will shift toward LIGHT, Silvi's and Ryuryu's
    affection will increase, and you will receive the following:

    her newfound friends will succeed in their quest. Dyshana leaves her with words
    of caution, warning Hildegard that envy and hate can take root in the hearts of
    people close to her and assuring her that they will meet again.
    
    After this event, Hildegard will leave your party. Redistribute her equipment
    if necessary.

    Ganz is unable to find a satisfactory forge in town. As he wonders if he could
    possibly find one on the continent, Arbol spots a member of Hildegard's crew.
    It turns out to be Kilik, who tells the party that Vlady poisoned the captain
    and took her prisoner. He says that he knows where she is being held and has
    men who will fight to rescue her, leaving Duran to decide how to tackle the
    situation.

    * Strategy: This is a surprise battle in which you face two different kinds   *
    * of Pirates. You can tell them apart by their weapons; the axe wielders have *
    * higher HP and ATK whereas the anchor wielders have higher MAG and RST. They *
    * also have Glacier and Blizzard spells. Focus on linking your party members  *
    * together so they can use their Extended Skills and preventing the Pirates   *
    * from doing the same.                                                        *

    * the Pirates from doing the same.                                            *

    In the midst of all the commotion, Kilik encounters Hildegard and tells her
    that Duran is engaging Vlady in battle. She is surrounded by a magical barrier
    that prevents her from moving, but she asks Kilik to wait with her until Duran
    arrives.
    
    Meanwhile, Duran and his allies find Vlady, who was conspiring with the demons
    and is enraged that his plans are falling apart. Using the power he has been
    given, he transforms and attacks the party.

    * Strategy: This isn't a surprise battle, but it's a large step up in dif-    *
    * ficulty from the last two. In addition to three physical Pirates and four   *
    * magical Pirates with Refresh and Sanctuary spells, you have to deal with    *
    * Vlady, a powerhouse with 57,361 HP, 3580 ATK, and skills that can hit in a  *
    * wide area. Immediately send a tank his way to keep him distracted, then     *
    * chase after the Pirates and pick them off as you catch them. In addition to *
    * the usual procedure of healing and reviving the tank, you'll have to rear-  *
    * range your party to reach the Pirates and keep Vlady's attention focused    *
    * where it needs to be. Stick with it, and as soon as you've got enough SP,   *
    * hit Vlady with everything you've got. The minions make this battle tedious  *
    * at first, but once they're gone, it becomes fairly simple.                  *

    After the battle, the party frees Hildegard and discusses who or what had the
    power to create the barrier around her. Vashtor says a gurg is responsible, and
    Dyshana confirms his theory. Hildegard vows to help the party stop it, and
    makes Kilik the new captain of the Death-Cross Pirates. Ryuryu predicts that
    the party will receive a message borne on wings, and is proven correct when
    Keith arrives to request Silvi's help attacking Areopagus, the headquarters of
    the dark forces. The party decides to assist the harpuia in their assault.

    IMPORTANT! You will not be able to use Vashtor, Ellis, or Borgnine in the next
    battle. If any or all of these three are part of your regular lineup, make sure
    you have suitable replacements for them before you enter Tegea.
    
    Keith shows the party the city of Tegea, a bastion of military and economic
    power and the last line of defense against the demon hordes. If it falls, the
    rest of the continent is sure to follow. Alberti proposes pushing forward to
    fight the demons, and Silvi suggests using the Great Danakil Fen as an initial
    staging point. During this discussion, Vashtor whispers to Ellis that he wants
    to talk to her about Duran privately.
    
    That night, Ellis meets Vashtor in the woods to talk. He tells her that Duran
    is becoming more of an obstacle to his lord and must be prevented from forging
    Hass Calinou's Hammer. He shows her the Rainbow Shard, which Reverie gave to
    him upon request, and runs Ellis through. He reveals to her his plans to use
    her blood and the shard to forge a Bracelet of the Covenant. Borgnine arrives
    just in time to see Vashtor flee with an unconscious Ellis.
    
    The next day, as the party searches for their missing companions, Reverie ad-
    mits to giving Vashtor the Rainbow Shard. Ryuryu sees a vision that suggests
    Ellis is at Areopagus, and the party resolves to save her. Keith, however, re-
    ports that a large enemy force is marching on the city, and promises to find
    Ellis while the party holds off the demons.

    * Strategy: This a surprise battle. The two Garvels are the biggest threats   *
    * here, followed closely by the Goblin Kings. Pull your party together, then  *
    * attack and kill the most threatening foes before they can cause too much    *
    * damage with their Extended Skills. Duran's Cluster Shot works well here if  *
    * you get surrounded.                                                         *

    After the battle, Silvi reports that the demons made straight for the weakest
    point in the city's defenses when they attacked. The party deduces that a spy
    is feeding them information, and that there is a traitor in their midst. Ryuryu
    suspects that Keith is the traitor, and Borgnine arrives and adds that he is
    working with Vashtor. The party is surprised by this turn of events, but Duran
    prepares to leave for Areopagus and confront Vashtor about his betrayal.
    
    Borgnine will rejoin your party after this event. Don't forget to re-equip him
    if you put him back in your party.

    Iron Golems are large and slow, but have high HP, ATK, and DEF. Gorgons are
    well-rounded creatures with respectable AGI, and they know several fire spells.
    Black Dragons are large, fast fliers that have high RST and come equipped with
    Abyss Symbols. Mist Dragons are large fliers that are faster and more resistant
    to magic than Iron Golems, and they also absorb water damage. Don't take them
    lightly.
    
    Grab the O-Bracelet from the chest in Area 1 and make a detour to Area 3 to get
    Advanced Weapons V. Collect the Bardiche and Dark Ray as you pass through Area
    4 and the LUK Up+ in the southeast corner of Area 6, then swing by Area 7 for
    Secret Arts XV. Don't miss the chest containing Accessories 2-I in Area 8, and
    prepare for a boss fight when you reach Area 9.

    After slaying the dragon, you will see a cutscene where Vashtor talks to Ellis,
    who is alive in spite of her wounds. He plans to sacrifice her to unleash the
    powers of the Bracelet of the Covenant, and confesses that he has always been
    an agent of darkness. He also speaks with Keith, and assures him that he will
    keep the promise he made as long as Keith keeps his.

    Keith informs Vashtor that Duran and his companions are closing in on them.
    Vashtor announces that he will be taking Ellis to Archer's Point and orders
    Keith to deal with the party. Keith doesn't think he stands a chance against
    them, but Vashtor leaves him with a servant and a gift that will allow him to
    channel the dark lord's power.

    Keith confronts the party and refuses to tell them where Ellis and Vashtor are.
    He insists that he acted as he did to protect Silvi and expresses frustration
    that she was never aware of his feelings for her, and invokes the power of
    Vashtor's gift to strengthen himself and take her by force.

    * Strategy: The Orc Lords have high physical stats, but are inferior to the   *
    * Garvels. They have Parry, however, so you'll have to use spells or Extra    *

    * 68,653 HP, 3781 ATK, 2882 MAG, and a variety of physical and wind skills.   *
    * He's also pretty fast, and can attack from two spaces away. As you did with *
    * Vlady, distract him with a tank while wiping out his minions to build up    *
    * your SP. Once all the small fries are gone, keep reviving and healing your  *
    * tank until you have enough SP to lay Keith out. His Blaster Dive can do     *
    * 30,000+ damage in a large radius, so if you misjudge your strength, expect  *

    With his dying breath, Keith tells the party that Vashtor has headed west to
    Archer's Point and praises Silvi for being honest about her feelings. Though
    saddened by her friend's death, she follows Duran and his companions as they
    set out.

    with scorn and contempt. He agrees to release Ellis in exchange for Winfield's
    Bracelet of the Covenant, but as Winfield approaches, Fer cuts Ellis's bonds
    and distracts Vashtor while she flees. Vashtor walks off with the Rainbow
    Shard, ordering one of his fellow gurg to deal with the party.

    Duran tries to chase Vashtor after felling the gurg, but Dyshana holds him back
    and says that there's only one place he can run. She consoles him by saying

    Winfield and Ganz observe that the situation is dire and the continent full of
    armies. Reverie says that the fall of Uttara Kulu, the Sacred Mountain, left
    the continent reeling as the demon armies advanced. Alberti doubts that it
    would be possible to disrupt the communication or supply lines between the
    demon strongholds, but Rex and Winfield know that this is their last chance to
    defeat Summerill. Though outnumbered and outclassed, the party mobilizes and
    prepares to rally the armies of the continent's three great nations against the
    army of darkness.

    Dyshana warns Rex to choose his words with care, but promises to give Rex her

    After the battle, Plum shows the party a letter of introduction to the king of
    Limburg, sealed by the general who commands the fortress. The party returns to
    the city to meet with the king and gather information about the war.
    
    -> Limburg
    King Sarburgh accepts the party's offer to help his country in their war and
    speaks openly about the state of affairs on the continent. The demons have cut
    off communication between the countries and prevented the king from forming
    alliances, and he has also heard that a massive fleet is approaching. Fearing
    that the ships carry crews of demons, he requests the party's assistance in
    repelling their assault. The party heads to Elblag to prepare and investigate.
    
    -> Elblag
    The party is approached by a young woman named Beatrice, who asks to speak with
    Alberti and identifies him as her grandfather. She explains that her father,
    Ryune, was Alberti's son, and they were able to cross between the continents
    thanks to the Meteor Ore in the ring that Nastassja received as a wedding gift.
    While Beatrice rests and recuperates from her journey, Alberti tells Winfield
    that he told Ryune to search the world for people who were willing to fight
    against the forces of darkness. Beatrice understands that the party is severely
    outmatched, but offers to lend them her troops' and her strength.
    
    After this event, you will receive Esoteric Book XXIII and the Full Rein Force
    field, and Beatrice will join your party. She is a well-balanced fighter who
    uses swords and knives in battle, starts at Lv. 60, and comes equipped with a
    Split Sword and Force Frame.
    
    -> Limburg
    Beatrice meets with King Sarburgh and requests to merge her his army with his,
    but asks that Rex's command take precedence. The king agrees to this condition
    and reports that the demon forces are gathering at their fortresses. Beatrice
    identifies Vol Tuanor and Kuturgur as the demons' most important strongholds,
    and underscores the importance of holding Zeleia. Sarburgh agrees to move to
    the fort with a small army and send the rest of his troops to help the party
    secure the pass. He gives them leave to go where they will, but states that he
    is most worried about the most distant territories. Rex will have to decide how
    to approach the war quickly.
    
    IMPORTANT! The order in which you choose to clear the fortresses will determine
    the enemies you face, the rewards you receive, the movement of the Link Gauge,
    and whether or not you will be able to recruit the last two party members. I
    have provided below the order in which to attack the fortresses if you want to
    get the True End, and the enemies you will have to fight if you do. If you take
    longer than the listed number of turns to clear the fortresses, you will fight
    different enemies and the Link Gauge will shift toward DARK.

    The enemies here are a step up in difficulty from the ones in the field. The
    Nekomatas are fast monsters with low HP, but high AVD and a nice assortment of
    physical, wind, and earth skills. Light Spirits have very high RST and absorb
    light damage. They excel at using light skills, but have Cure All, Glacier, and
    Blizzard to round out their arsenal. Dark Spirits are much the same, only they
    absorb and specialize in dark skills with a few lightning skills thrown in for
    variety. King Werewolves are a bit less agile than Nekomatas, but have a more
    physical bent and drop Chipped Statues when overkilled. Master Skeletons have
    high HP and ATK and a skillset that includes Nightmare, Ankh Glaive, and Gaia
    Attack. They also have Parry, so you'll have to finish them off with magic or
    Extra Skills. They can be overkilled for Necro Stones. Devils are large, slow
    monsters with very high HP and ATK, and they supplement their physical skills
    with Hati, Storm Attack, and Crimson Attack.
    
    Thankfully, there's some good treasure to be found as well. In Area 2, get the
    Shiny Fang from the chest in the north. Visit Area 3 to find Forbidden Tome IV,
    a Clairvoyance, and an INT Up+, and open the chests in Area 4 to find a Vessel
    of Life and a Resist Frame.
    
    In Area 5, the party finds a female harpuia surrounded by monsters and jumps to
    her defense.

    The harpuia is eager to go avenge her people after the fight, but pauses when
    the party says that they, too, are bound for Kaluni Kahla. She accepts Rex's
    invitation to join them and introduces herself as Murmina.
    
    After the cutscene, you will receive Esoteric Book XXIV and the All Reduced
    field, and Murmina will join your party. She is a well-rounded gun wielder who
    starts at Lv. 60 and comes equipped with a Quickrain and a Misty Guard. Climb
    the steps to reach Area 6, grab the Crimson Edge from the chest in the north-
    east, and proceed to Area 7, where you'll find chests that contain O-Knuckles
    and Secret Arts XVII (if you climb to the top of the cliff and leap off). After
    collecting them, exit to the northwest.

    even if they can handle the reserves. Rex assures the king that they will not
    need his troops to break through the fortress, which leaves Raynos convinced
    that they will return victorious.

    * Strategy: It looks like the demons have taken off the kid gloves. The Mist  *
    * Dragon and Huswards all have Abyss Symbols, so pick one of them and focus   *
    * your party's attacks on it. The Huswards have higher HP and ATK, but their  *
    * defensive skills are lower than the dragon's and their Extra Skills aren't  *
    * as dangerous. Try to take one of them down, then go after the Mist Dragon   *
    * and the other Husward. Spread your party members out so they can't all be   *
    * hit by the enemies' skills, and save the Garvels for last unless you're in  *
    * dire need of SP.                                                            *

    * Strategy: The Gurg on the right has 102,083 HP and a wide array of physical *
    * skills, including Genesis Wave and Gore Crush. The Gurg on the left has     *
    * 89,830 HP and an assortment of powerful magic skills, including Meltdown,   *
    * Grand Cross, Earth Nova, and Extra Heal. Both have Abyss Symbols. Prepare   *
    * for a difficult fight.                                                      *

    * Your best bet is to go after the magical Gurg first to deprive the enemies  *
    * of healing. Spread your party out, and attack only after the Gurgs have     *
    * taken their turns. Try to keep them focused on one character at a time, and *
    * wipe out the magical Gurg with Extra Skills after stockpiling some SP. With *
    * one Gurg out of the picture, you can switch to the baiting strategy to deal *
    * with the other.                                                             *

    The demon troops at the fortress are extremely well-disciplined, leaving the

    * Strategy: This is a surprise battle, and you're up against quite a few op-  *
    * ponents, but it's easier than the first battle at Vatna as long as you de-  *
    * feat the Husward early on. Kill a Garvel or two first if you need to build  *

    * Strategy: Welcome to hell! The Gurg is identical to the physical Gurg that  *
    * you fought at Vatna, and the two Lindwors are leveled-up versions of the    *
    * beast from Kaluni Kahla. They have a lot of wind-based skills, and their    *
    * large size and the shape of the battlefield makes it easy for them to cut   *
    * off your party members' escape routes. This, combined with the Gurg's       *
    * crushing physical attacks, means you really have your work cut out for you. *
    *                                                                             *
    * The best advice I can offer is to cut off the enemies' movement and force   *
    * them to attack certain characters. Spread your party members out, but not   *
    * to the extent that the Lindwors can fly between them at will, and don't let *
    * anyone get trapped in a corner that the other characters can't reach. If    *
    * you're using Winfield, Hold Shot can be invaluable for keeping the enemies  *
    * in place. Focus on maintaining control of the battlefield and taking down   *
    * one enemy at a time, because each one that dies will mean that much less    *
    * pressure for you to face.                                                   *
    *                                                                             *
    * This is an extremely difficult battle, so you shouldn't feel bad if it      *
    * takes you several tries to win. Don't give up!                              *

    The gurg flees after the battle, and a vengeful Murmina tries to chase after
    it until the party talks her down. The party returns to liberate the fortress,
    and Vira-Lorr and Dyshana lag behind to discuss the seeress's reasons for re-
    maining with the party.
    
    Clearing this stronghold before turn 55 will cause the Link Gauge to shift
    toward LIGHT.
    
    With the last of the demon fortress cleared, the party convenes to plan their
    next move. Fer suggests returning to Zeleia Fortress, and Winfield complains
    that the bracelet's curse is making it harder for him to control his body.
    Dyshana tells him that death, corruption, or sealing Summerill are his only
    hopes for release, and Winfield's determination makes the choice an easy one.

    The demon troops retreat once their leader falls, which Vira-Lorr and Sharona

    As Rex and his followers approach the fortress, a garvel informs Vashtor that

    King Sarburgh reports that he was able to set up camp without resistance, which

    IMPORTANT! You will not be able to return to this dungeon after defeating the
    boss. Be sure to collect all the treasure that you want from the dungeon before
    clearing it.
    
    When you enter the dungeon, you will see a cutscene in which Vashtor begs Lord
    Summerill for more time to trap the party. Summerill agrees to let him handle
    the party as he sees fit, confident that Vashtor's hatred will drive him to
    kill them.
    
    Considering what you've been through to get here, this dungeon is a breeze. The
    encounter rate is low, the enemies are weak, and the first two areas are rather
    straightforward. After ascending the staircase in Area 3, double back and take
    the southeast exit to reach the upper level of Area 2. Get the Nightmare from
    the chest, then enter the doorway to reach Area 4, where you can find chests
    that contain an O-Bangle, a Hermes Ring, and an Aura Ring. Exit to the south-
    west to reach Area 5 and climb the southern stairs to reach Area 6, where you
    can procure a Triple Feather, a VIT Up+, an Extra Heal, and a Tree of Life. Af-
    ter collecting them, return to Area 6 and climb the northern stairs. Grab the
    Three Stars from the chest by the door, and enter Area 7 to face the boss.
    
    Unless the Link Gauge shifted to DARK after any of the earlier fortress battles
    or you took more than 70 turns to reach Dandalugan Fortress, you will encounter
    Vashtor here. He insists that he belongs in Lord Summerill's court and denies
    that the years he spent with Ladius, his descendants, or the rest of the party
    have any meaning or value to him anymore. Unable to reason with their former
    comrade, the party takes up arms against him.

    * You don't even need to bother attacking; just distract him with a tank and  *

    Murmina draws her gun and prepares to shoot Vashtor as he kneels before the
    party, but Rex stands in her way. Warning her of the self-perpetuating cycle of
    hatred and the emptiness of revenge, he urges her to forgive Vashtor. Touched
    by Rex's sincere display of caring, she puts away her gun and watches as Rex
    welcomes Vashtor back into the party. He then warns the party to evacuate the
    fortress, which is about to explode.
    
    After this cutscene, you will receive Esoteric Book XXVII and the Overdrive
    field, and Vashtor will rejoin your party. He starts with the same level, at-
    tributes, and EXP total he had when he left the party, but will need to be
    given new equipment if you want to keep using him.
    
    -> Izabella Garrison
    Vashtor reveals to the party that the destruction of Dandalugan was meant to
    delay the party and their allies, if not kill them outright. The party cannot
    press deeper into enemy territory until the rubble is cleared, and would be ex-
    tremely vulnerable if they did, so they ask Vashtor if there are any other
    routes west. He suggests moving through the Falmouth Hills and the Helmos
    Mountains; they are full of monsters, but the demons will not be patrolling the
    area. They will also not be able to bring any troops with them, but Rex agrees
    to Vashtor's plan once the former gurg promises to serve as a guide.
    
    -> Monofis Canyon
    Between watches at camp, Murmina asks Beatrice why she follows Rex. They learn
    that their reasons for following him are very similar, and suggest that Rex has
    somehow enchanted them.
    
    After this event, you will receive the following:
    
    Esoteric Book XXVI
    Force Frame

    Generation Crystal

    After a moment of awkward silence, Ellis tells Rex that her teaching helped him
    become the man he is today. She contrasts him with his ancestors, saying that
    he is more like Leo than the others, and gives him a charm in exchange for a
    promise that he will not die in battle.

    Rune Masters have high INT and command over earth and holy spells. They drop
    Master's Rings when overkilled. Bloody Beasts have high STR and AGI and mainly
    use combo skills, though they also have Hati, Storm Attack, Thor Hammer, and
    Nightmare. Overkilling them will net you Bloody Pearls.

    * after it moves, and hit it hard with Extra Skills after building up enough  *
    * SP. If you have your tank equipped with an Earth Dragon or another piece of *
    * equipment that absorbs earth damage, you can really increase his or her     *

    The party makes camp to rest and recover after the battle. Dyshana comes upon
    Arbol at night and asks him why he travels with the party. Though he knows that
    the ryulent will not exist as they are forever, he looks forward to seeing the
    humans realize their potential.

    Lesser Demons are well-balanced flying monsters who use physical, wind, and
    dark skills and can be overkilled for Weird Necklaces. Magic Warriors are large
    monsters with high HP and ATK who supplement their arsenal of physical skills
    with Icicle Attack and Crimson Attack, and drop Magic Armor when overkilled.
    Medusas are also well-rounded, but have a more magical bent than Lesser Demons
    and command a host of dark and fire skills. Overkill them for Eyes of Stone
    Snake.
    
    Area 1 is straightforward. In Area 2, head to the northeastern corner to get
    the Misty Guard from the chest, then grab the Stardust as you make your way
    northwest and exit to Area 3. Grab the LUK Up+ from the chest in the southeast
    of the area, then cross the bridge, get Accessories 3-I, and continue until you
    reach the exit to Area 4. In Area 5, climb the cliffs to find a Refresh Herb
    and a Ring of Inability, and jump over to the plateau to get the Skull Staff
    from the chest. Exit to the southwest to reach Area 6, where you can climb the
    cliffs, double back, and drop down to reach treasure chests that contain a
    Sarnga and a Sanctuary. After collecting them, go back to the northwest to exit
    the dungeon.
    
    As the party crosses the mountains, Vashtor tells them that Guisado Gaza is
    just ahead. It is a large but poorly-equipped demon fortress, and the party
    decides to approach it together before deciding how to assault it. Afterward,
    Dyshana will ask Ganz and Plum why they travel with the party.

    Rex and Beatrice are suspicious of the fortress's weak defenses, but the party

    them as they advance, they decide to capture it.

    Vashtor is confused by the demon forces' movement away from their fortresses
    and suggests that the next battle will pit the party against a horde of demons.
    Rex decides to leave Guisado Gaza standing and report back to the allied forces
    at Dandalugan.
    
    Later that night, Dyshana talks to Beatrice and Alberti and confesses that she
    needed Leonhardt and his descendants to help reshape the world. Though Alberti
    chides her for treating humans like tools, he answers honestly when Dyshana
    asks him why he stays with the party, as does his granddaughter.
    
    If you return to Guisado Gaza after the cutscene, you will see an event in
    which Reverie swims in a lake near the fortress. She talks to Rex about her de-
    termination to end the war and her desire to start a family once the world is
    at peace again. She asks him if he would consider marrying her, revealing that
    she was joking only after she threatens to eat him if he ever breaks his vows.

    The party tells King Sarburgh of the demons' plan to consolidate their forces
    and launch a mass assault. Qua suggests launching an assault on Barzakh, which
    could be done with relative ease from Guisado Gaza. After consulting with the
    king, the party decides to cross the Larohenga Desert and secure a landing spot
    for his troops' equipment while he moves his army through the desert with them.
    
    Later that night, Dyshana talks to Qua, Fer, and Reverie and learns why they
    choose to stay with the party.

    Lizard Lords have high HP and ATK, mainly use physical skills, and can counter
    your attacks. Dark Mages are powerful spellcasters who specialize in dark
    magic. Dragon Zombies are large flying monsters with high ATK and an arsenal of
    deadly skills, including Genesis Wave and a variety of earth and dark skills.
    They also absorb dark damage. Luijts are extremely fast, skillful spellcasters
    that can dodge physical attacks with ease. They absorb light damage, and since
    they have Parry and Magic Barrier, you'll have to use Extra Skills to defeat
    them.
    
    Following any of the paths other than the ones outlined here can throw you into
    a repeating maze, so pay careful attention as you explore. In Area 1, get the
    INT Up+ from the chest and make your way northwest to reach Area 2. Take the
    northeast path first and collect the AGI Up+ and Accessories 3-II from Area 3,
    then head to Area 4 and snag Accessories 3-III before exiting to the northwest.
    In Area 6, go northeast first and then exit Area 7 to the northwest.

    You'll enter the desert in Area 7. Retrace your path to Area 6 and exit to the
    southeast this time. Take the northeast exit from Area 8 to reach Area 9, where
    you can find a Cruel Frame and a Ginna's scythe in the chests. Return to Area 8
    after collecting them and exit to the southwest to reach Area 10. Grab the True
    Emblem from the chest in the southwest, then take the path to Area 11. The exit
    from the dungeon is in the southeast, and there's a chest containing a Dragoon
    Lance right next to it.
    
    Upon leaving the desert, Rex states his conviction to follow the path where no
    one is hurt as he tries to save the world. Dyshana insists that sacrifice is
    necessary and that the party is nothing more than tools of the gods, but they
    all state their desires to exercise their free will for everyone's betterment.

    Enemies: L85 Medusa, L91 Ogre

    Reverie discovers a landing point for King Sarburgh's transport and leaves to
    report to him as the party begins constructing a settlement.
    
    Later that night, Murmina talks to Vashtor. She tells him that she can neither
    kill him nor forgive him for slaughtering her people, and that he does not have
    her permission to die until she has forgiven him. He then tells Rex that he
    cannot ask for forgiveness, but he can attempt to atone for his sins through
    his actions, and realizes the importance of forgiving himself as well.

    The women of the party come upon a bashful Beatrice while she is bathing and

    If you return, you will see another event in which Dyshana has a nightmare.
    This event unlocks CG #93 and confirms that you have met the requirements for
    the True End.
    
    A storyline event will play after the two optional events. Beatrice meets with
    the party in the evening and tells them that the demons have nearly 100,000
    troops at their disposal - more than four times as many as the party and their
    allies command. King Sarburgh experiences a moment of doubt, recalling that
    Rex's family has been fighting demons for generations, but Rex assures him that
    this generation will be the last. The rest of the party is confident that the
    upcoming battle will bring an end to both the war and Lord Summerill.
    
    Later, Rex thanks Ellis for serving his family and tells her that she will be
    free to do as she wishes after the final battle. Dyshana speaks to her after
    Rex leaves, and Ellis reveals that her life is nearing its end since she has
    too long been away from magical places such as Lus Soleil. Dyshana, however,
    reminds Ellis of Rex's words, filling her with a new sense of optimism, and
    contemplates the meaning of her own existence after Ellis departs.
    
    IMPORTANT! You will have to fight through the five locations below if you want

    party responsible for defeating Summerill, but Winfield urges him to worry more
    about how long his troops will hold against the demons. As the party sets off,
    the king gives his troops a motivational speech and prepares to meet the enemy
    on the battlefield.

    Enemies: L93 Greater Devil, L95 Rakshasa
    
    Rakshasas are powerful monsters that have high stats across the board. They use

    * Getting worried yet? If so, you can keep things under control by spreading  *
    * your party members out and focusing on one Gurg at a time. With the right   *
    * equipment and skill setup, you should be able to take down at least one of  *
    * them every other turn. Just remember whether your target has Magic Barrier  *
    * or Parry, and use the appropriate skills to finish it off. The sooner you   *
    * start taking them down, the less trouble you'll have later on. As usual,    *
    * you want to play it safe - wait for the enemies to attack, then revive or   *
    * heal your characters as needed before retaliating against them.             *

    IMPORTANT! If you did not recruit Vashtor, you'll fight him before facing Lord
    Summerill. He's accompanied by two Lindwors, so use the same strategy you did
    in the second battle at Vol Tuanor to win.
    
    The dark lord is impressed by the party's tenacity and offers to let them re-
    place his fallen gurgs. When they refuse, he tries to intimidate them by saying
    that Chaos is on his side. Dyshana then reveals herself as an aspect of Chaos,
    who sacrificed the lives of the previous Spirit Vessels to break the seal on
    his prison. Though surprised by this revelation, the party draws their weapons
    and prepares to stand with her against Summerill.

    * Summerill from decimating your ranks with his powerful skills. His Terror   *
    * Scream can do 20,000+ damage and inflict stun and bind, and Hell's Victim   *
    * can do 60,000+ damage and inflict every status ailment in the book, so the  *
    * fewer people he can hit with them, the better.                              *
    *                                                                             *
    * Once the Gurgs are gone, the real fun begins. Have your decoy distract      *
    * Summerill while the rest of the party hits him with Extended Skills after   *
    * each of his turns. Dealing enough damage to outpace his HP recovery each    *
    * turn shouldn't be a problem, but the big damage will come from your Extra   *
    * Skills. Unleash them after softening up Summerill and stockpiling SP, and   *
    * you'll soon bring the dark lord to his knees.                               *
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    
    IMPORTANT! You'll face Chaos Dyshana instead of Summerill if the Link Gauge is
    DARK when you reach Barzakh. Her stats are higher than Summerill's, but she
    doesn't absorb dark damage and fights you without help.
    
    If you haven't triggered the True End, the ending will play and the credits
    will roll after this battle, and you'll be able to start a New Game+ if you
    choose. Well done, brave warrior!
    
    F. True End & Boundary Plane
    In order to earn the True End and access the Boundary Plane, you must satisfy
    all of the following conditions:
    
    -Make sure that the Link Gauge is on the lower end of NEUTRAL at the beginning
    of the Fifth Generation.
    -When given your choice of three paths to follow, go after Eljudnir Fortress
    and Kaluni Kahla (in the southwest) first, Lyonesse Fortress and Vatna (in the
    north) second, and Vol Tuanor (in the northwest) last.
    -Do not let the Link Gauge shift toward DARK after any of the fortress battles.
    -Recruit Dyshana. She will join you after an event at Malena Way if you are
    NEUTRAL.
    -Recruit Beatrice. She will join you after an event in Elblag if you completed
    the Third Generation in less than 100 turns.
    -Recruit Murmina. She will join you if you save her at Uttara Kulu on or before
    turn 22.
    -Recruit Vashtor. He will join you after your battle at Dandalugan Fortress if
    you keep him alive for seven turns.
    -Keep the turn counter under 500 until you have defeated Lord Summerill.
    
    If you fulfill all of these conditions and are still NEUTRAL after the battle
    with Summerill, you'll see an additional sequence in which Dyshana tells the
    party about the twelve gods who created the world of Agarest. A schism between
    the gods of light and darkness forced Lenion to seal away the five dark gods,
    each of which became a continent. She says that mortals are ready to inherit
    the world, but the dark gods must be unsealed and slain before this can happen.
    Dyshana offers to unseal the gods, but warns the party that the world as they
    know it will cease to exist if she does. Rex is determined to see the world as
    it really is, and his friends agree to stand behind him, so he asks Dyshana to
    break the seals.
    
    Dyshana obligingly works her magic and says that Chaos has been sealed on a
    different plane of existence. The party will have to defeat the gods on each
    continent before they can reach Chaos's prison.
    
    After this event, all of the protagonists and brides of the earlier generations
    will be revived and you will receive the following:
    
    Leo's Sword
    E.O.M.
    Eso. Book XXVIII
    
    The first five gods await you at the pillars on each continent. You can take
    them on in any order, and you can build levels on the Boundary Plane until you
    feel ready to confront them.
    
    If you need to boost your characters' ATK and MAG, go to Aegisthus and capture
    Medusas and Greater Devils. By combining these monsters repeatedly, you can
    eventually create Rafflesias and then Griffins. Rafflesias can be traded for
    Stardust Claws, which convert into MAG +900; and Griffins can be traded for
    Large Mithril Claws, which convert into ATK +999. A few of those will turn your
    party into a veritable engine of destruction. You can also exchange your saved
    TP for Halper Scythes, which convert into ATK +750 for a fraction of the EP
    cost of the monster weapons.
    
    IMPORTANT! Once you've triggered the True End, you won't be able to view the
    ending or start a New Game+ until you've defeated all six of the gods. Make
    sure you're properly prepared for what lies ahead!

    * Her ultimate skill hits in a huge area around her and reduces SP, and she   *
    * has a nasty habit of using Dark Matter to drain tens of thousands of HP     *
    * from your characters when she's near death, so taking her down will require *
    * some strategy. Equip as many of your party members as possible with gear    *
    * that reduces or absorbs dark damage or has Resist HP Drain, and spread them *
    * as far apart as you can. You probably won't be able to pull off any fancy   *
    * Special Arts, so hit Deeth with Extra Skills whenever you have the SP for   *

    A list of all the skill combinations available in the game. They can be used
    without finding the books if your party members have the required skills.

    VII. Questions & Answers
    Q: Why a Record of Agarest War FAQ?
    A: It hadn't been done yet, and I was pining to write a FAQ for a strategy RPG.
    
    Q: Did you really finish this game?
    A: Yes. I don't submit FAQs unless I intend to finish them, and writing a com-
    prehensive walkthrough necessitated finishing the game. It took me quite some
    time, but for my readers' sake and my own, I finally made it to the end.
    
    Q: Do you actually like this game?
    A: Not as much as I wanted to.
    
    Q: What do you mean by that?
    A: I was disappointed by the lack of transitions in the plot, the frequent and
    monotonous battles, the uneven difficulty curve, and the lack of explanations
    from the in-game tutorial. Maybe I expected too much after jumping straight in-
    to Hard Mode, but games with this much depth need either a manual or a well-
    constructed tutorial for new players. Having to slog through countless battles
    to prepare for the next dungeon while trying to figure out the game mechanics
    was tedious and sometimes frustrating. I believe that there were good ideas be-
    hind the game and I enjoy playing it in moderation, but its flaws stand out too
    much for me to consider it a great game.
    
    Q: Is this a "perfect game" FAQ?
    A: No. I didn't even know that such a thing was possible until I was more than
    halfway through the game, throughout which I'd been writing the FAQ based on my
    own experiences and observations. I only included the events that I personally
    saw in this FAQ, and I missed several that are required to obtain Esoteric
    Books. If you want to be sure you don't miss them, I recommend following the
    Agarest Wiki's perfect game guide, which was a great help to me throughout the
    Fifth Generation.
    
    Q: Are you ever going to add the events that you missed the first time around
    and the conditions for triggering each event?
    A: Possibly, if I ever get around to replaying the game.
    
    Q: Are you ever going to add strategies for the Boundary Plane bosses?
    A: Probably not. Anyone who's capable of beating Chaos already has the skills
    and tactical knowledge to defeat any of the opponents in the game. It's just a
    question of how well one's party is equipped and whether or not one has the
    patience to go through the motions with each of the remaining bosses.
    
    Q: I'm not a masochist. Why should I play the game on Hard Mode?
    A: In addition to the extra challenge and the greater sense of accomplishment
    you'll get from completing the game, most of your earnings in Hard Mode will
    carry over to new games on ANY difficulty setting. If you want great rewards,
    you have to take great risks.
    
    Q: If I start a New Game+, what carries over?
    A: That depends on the difficulty setting you choose for your next playthrough.
    
    If you choose a higher difficulty setting, you get to keep your Gold, EP, TP,
    PP, monster weapons, active skills, Proofs of Valor, crafting manuals, Secret
    Arts books, Esoteric Books, Secret Albums, and fields. The game will also keep
    track of any items that were registered to the shop's inventory and several
    variables related to the acquisition of titles.
    
    If you choose a lower or equivalent difficulty setting, you get to keep all of
    the above plus your weapons, armor, accessories, items, and captured monsters.
    
    Q: How can I capture monsters?
    A: Reduce them to less than 5% of their maximum HP, then use the Capture skill.
    It's not guaranteed to work, but characters with high STR, INT, LUK, and Hunter
    are more likely to be successful.
    
    Q: Do you know where I can find an English manual for this game?
    A: Not for the PS3 version, but I've found one for the Xbox 360 version here:
    
    http://www.aksysgames.com/agarest/agarest_manual_small.pdf
    
    Q: Who's your favorite girl in the game? Mine is...
    A: Please don't finish that sentence.
    
    Q: Should I purchase any of the downloadable content?
    A: That depends. Do you feel that the cost of the content justifies the extra
    benefit or enjoyment you'll get from the game? If so, go for it; if not, save
    your money. Just be warned that buying and using items like the Halper Scythe
    early on in the game can make it substantially less challenging.
    
    Q: Did you purchase any of the downloadable content?
    A: I don't see why anything other than idle curiosity would lead you to ask
    this question, but I purchased the TP package. Some players might find it fun
    and challenging to spend hours upon hours using combos against enemies to earn
    TP; I find it boring and tedious, so I decided to save myself the trouble. More
    patient or skillful players may deride me as lazy, cheap, or wasteful, but I'm
    happy with my investment.
    
    Q: Your FAQ sucks! I've crapped out better FAQs than this!
    A: As soon as you find a way to upload excrement, you should post your wondrous
    creation for all to see.
    
    Q: I posted my FAQ, and everyone I know thinks it's better than yours! Your FAQ
    really DOES suck!
    A: Congratulations! I am in awe of your superior FAQ-writing skills! Now go
    away.
    
    Q: This is the best FAQ I've ever read! You're a genius and a god among men,
    and I want to know more about you so that I can immortalize you!
    A: Yeah, I get that a lot. My contact info's listed below.
    
    Q: <insert some question that has nothing to do with Record of Agarest War or
    the FAQ here>
    A: See the second sentence of my previous answer.
