1. Introduction
###############

In Growlanser IV for PSP, there are 46 endings. To get specific 
character ending, you have do their character quest or event 
thoughtout the course of the game. However, it is possible to 
get all characters endings in one game save for another familiar 
that you do not choose. Thus, with that fact in mind, this guide 
is intended to help those who want to get all possible character  
ending in one playthrough.

As you might expect, this Furlough faq is intended for modified 
PSP route. However, it also works with original route considering 
you would actually have less people to worry about to fit into your 
furlough schedule, namely Meline, Magnus, and Pamela.

That is to say, original route is not as easy as it seems to get 
all endings in one go as well, as you will have two less days 
compared to modified route.

Before we begin, you may need to adjust your schedule regarding 
familiar if you are not using Familiar D-MD, as I have her as my 
familiar when I write this. 

The most important thing of all is that you have be sure to alter 
everyone's fate. Consider yourself warned if you let Elena dies, 
although she does not matter at all for any of the character's ending. 

For this reason as well, it would be a good idea to make a branch 
save when Cargill throw you into prison.

Note that this faq does not cover battle related strategy 
whatsoever, only pointing what and when you need to do to finish 
the quests, or get the scenes required for character ending.

########################
2. Spending The Furlough
########################

Before the game hit its very first furlough, one of the more 
important person to build relationship with early on is Tricia. 
Take not to save her from monsters during the early course of 
the game.


Be sure to talk to Latika the first time you get into Klasdahl in 
order to alter Muntzer's fate. It is necessary to alter Muntzer's 
fate for Silverneil's ending.

############
1st Furlough
############

Due to story restriction, you can only pick Boomtown on your 
first furlough.

Day one: Boomtown
1) Talk to Eliza (story purpose).
2) Talk to Hien - What do you fight for?
3) Invite Frayne to museum - encourage her to paint.

Day two: Boomtown
1) Talk to Frayne - she will tell you go take her to prison.
2) Talk to Hien - you need friends, obviously.
3) Nobody else have any event here, but take Remus to Mell 
for some funny chat.

############
2nd Furlough
############

You can now choose Marquelia

Day one: Boomtown
1) Talk to Eliza - selling furniture.
2) Talk to Hien - long sword and short sword.
3) Invite Fryane to museum - encourage her to show her painting.

Day two: Marquelia
1) Talk to Hien - salty air.
2) Talk to Frayne - hide and seek game; dining table, front gate, 
and dock
3) Talk to Sydney - the only time she would appear, remember for 
future furlough.

*Note that Sydney will only appear in Marquelia if it is your 
final furlough day, and only available to talk to on sunset

############
3rd Furlough
############

Day one: Boomtown
1) Talk to Eliza with Sydney besides her - Sydney's lecture.
2) Talk to Hien - enemy with dirty trick.
3) Invite Frayne to museum - drawing sea (Trockmere).

Day two: Marquelia
1) Talk to Remus - castle scene, need Remus' father name.
2) Talk to Hien - cutting yourself (badass or crazy, you decide).
3) Talk to Sydney - her hometown.

If you have talked with Sydney twice at this point, you Familiar 
should suggest you to look for a gift for her (Sunset Quartz).
 
However, you cannot get the said item until you have Leona in 
your party. Sydney have no more important furlough event until 
you have Sunset Quartz. 

############
4th Furlough
############

Day one: Boomtown
1) Talk with Eliza - talk to Godron, Sydney, and Mell 
respectively for idea.
2) Talk with Hien - spellstone is dangerous.
3) Talk with Remus - ask his father name.

Day two: Marquelia
1) Talk with Christopher - learn more about Remus' past.
2) Talk with Hien - a dream about a girl.
3) Either talk with Frayne or Sydney to raise their affection.

You need to take Frayne to Trockmere to continue her character 
quest, and Sydney is pointless to talk to without Sunset Quartz 
except for raising affection level, but to use furlough 
effectively, use Dandy Book for that (steal/drop from enemies).

Mell fliers sidequest should be available now right after 4th 
furlough ends, so go talk to her and get 9x fliers, distribute
them on Marquelia right away, and the other three the moment 
story needs you to visit them.

When the story requires you to stop by Trockmere after saving 
Pamela and Magnus, use this chance to:

1) Finish Mell's fliers quest.

2) Visit Trockmere's harbor and the prison for Frayne's quest.

3) Recruit Vallery on the north of Ordeneil's forest.

When revisiting Ruins of Hope again, don't forget Frayne's diary.

After defeating Akyel, talk to Pamela in Trockmere to trigger 
the quest required for Silverneil's ending (the Magnus 
crossdressing one).

Before going to 5th Furlough, it is recommended that you get 
Frayne 2nd limit now. Especially if you plan to use Frayne in 
the long run.

############
5th Furlough
############

Day one: Boomtown
1) Talk to Leona in her room - treat her not as pet.
2) Go to Maggie place to trigger D-MD event - think her not as tool.
3) Talk to Eliza - stalk Levan (this takes entire day!).

Day two: Boomtown
1) Talk to Mell for D-MD event - agree for Mell to teach her.
2) Talk with Leona - trigger quest to search for Merrick.
3) Talk with Frayne and ask her to museum - if you have her diary 
and 2nd limit, she will learn her 3rd limit at this point; in 
museum, tell her it's ok to be selfish.

Day 3: Marquelia
1) Talk to Remus - meet "Alice".
2) Talk to Vallery - pick the friend choice, as corny as it sounds.
3) Talk to Frayne - request to draw a "Sylm".

After 5th furlough, search for Merrick straight away and alter his 
fate, he will then give you 9x acron. Put Leona in your party 
until you use up all the acron (it's a part of requirement for 
her ending). She's a good heavy hitter anyway.

With Hien in your party this time, go to the prison and rest there 
again, Hien will found a perdant.

When you sneak into the fort again, don't forget to reply to Tricia 
knock code first before doing anything else.

After you are done with the fort mission, it is best to make a 
seperate save again as you will be prompted into battle with Meline 
when you return home, and may choose to recruit her afterwards for 
modified route, or refuse her for original route.

Before going to the 6th Furlough, I recommend you get Hien 2nd limit 
now. It may be a good idea to have it since you will need to use it 
in the fight against Ludwig.

############
6th Furlough
############

If you have done Eliza quest up to stalking Levan last furlough, her 
first request for odd job will come. Agree to go with her on the 
first day of course.

Day one: Marquelia
Eliza - show off your detective skill please.

Day two: Boomtown
Before anything else, talk to Remus inside the villa - this will 
enable you to reunite the Marquelia siblings finally.
1) Talk to Meline - share the fruit.
2) Talk to Hien - about the perdant that he picked up.
3) Talk to Mell about D-MD - making accessory.

Day three: Boomtown
1) Talk to Hien - cutting liquid, also nets you his 3rd limit if 
you already have his 2nd limit at this point.
2) Talk to Leona - eat the bug, screw all logic.
3) Talk to Mell about D-MD - see how well her accessory sell.

With these, you are done with Remus, Hien, and Leona furlough events.
The finishing touch are:

1) Remus - go visit princess Alicia with Remus in party when not 
on furlough.

2) Hien - in the battle against Ludwig, have Hien attack him once.

3) Leona - use up all the acron.

Altering Remus fate will also allow you to access Alicia ending.
Remus will notify you about her sister wanting to see you later.

############
7th Furlough
############

If you have done Eliza detective quest last furlough, the next 
request for her will come. This does not take any furlough time 
and take place at the night before your day one begin.

Day one: Boomtown
Immidiately right after, if you have done D-MD like I suggested on 
last furlough, she will ask you to take her to Maggie. At the same 
time, when you go down, you should Meline going up the stairs.
These two are characters event that requires you immidiate attention!

1) Take D-MD to Maggie - she does not feel well, but nothing wrong 
(obviously, a heartache).
2) Talk to Meline in front of your room - feed each others.
3) Invite Regina and talk to Mell - trigger Lovers' Oak quest.

Day two: Marquelia
One reason to go to Marquelia at this point is to trigger Pamela's 
character quest.

1) Talk to Pamela in front of the door before you set out - automatic 
event at Marquelia's harbor.
2) Talk to Vallery - first event with the boy who wants him dead.
3) Talk to Alicia - pick choices that looks good like "lend me your 
strength."

Day three: Boomtown
1) Talk to Pamela - tea sipping and trigger he teaset quest.
2) Talk to Mell - help her in shop (Frayne as customer).
3) Talk to Magnus - mentioning Otter/Cargill.

Day four: Marquelia
1) Talk to the boy who wants Vallery dead - Vallery has friends.
2) Talk to Hien - ask him to be bait.
3) Talk to Magnus - tell him that Hien agrees to help.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

#############################
7th Furlough [Original Route]
#############################

Note that if you are on original route here, you will only have three
days of furlough, but considering there's no Meline, Pamela, and Magnus 
to fit in, you can delete the third day in Boomtown and shaft Mell 
schedule to the earlier for Meline on the first day in Boomtown.

Afterwards, spend the next two days in Marquelia for Vallery event.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Buttload of sidequests you need to do here before entering 8th furlough. 
Continue with the story until just before the battle with Silverneil in 
Revrant, then take your time to do all these quests:

1) Silverneil - talk with Latika is Klasdahl.

2) Eliza - Trockmere, reunite the lovers.

3) Frayne - talk with the farmer in Khesdahl, then go to Riesel and talk 
with the guy in front of the inn. Proceed south of Khesdahl until you 
see the scene with Sylm appearing.

4) Sydney - en route from Riesel while doing Frayne quest, pick up Sunset 
Quartz in the place where you see Leona.

5) Pamela - Go to Ordineil, head to inn and talk to Santos, then talk to 
Ned, and lastly talk to the guy in niche shop to acquire Pamela's teaset.

Regina and The Homunculus' Machine
----------------------------------

First of all, do arena 1v1, proceed to win until you unlock 4v4 and win 
the key item "Ancient Text". Give it to Maggie so she would create 
homunculus machine.

After that is done, with Regina in your party, talk to the doctor. Pay 
attention to the blood type and her mass. Afterwards, talk to Maggie 
to make Regina a "heart". The event should play out automatically after.

If you are taking original route, this homunculus machine also necessary 
for your familiar ending.


The Sunset Quartz and Lovers' Oak Deal
--------------------------------------

If there's a reason why you should make a branch save before 8th furlough, 
this would be number one reason, as you CANNOT have Sunset Quartz and 
Lovers' Oak at the same time. To get Lovers' Oak, after you save Sunset 
Quartz, talk to a guy near armor shop, then talk to the green caped guy. 
He will offer you a Lovers' Oak in exchange for Sunset Quartz.

Halt this trade until Sydney asks you to take a furlough. When prompted, 
refuse her, make a branch save, and decide whether you want to keep 
Sunset Quartz or trade it for Lovers' Oak before taking 8th furlough.

############
8th Furlough
############

Despite this is 2nd to last furlough, this is actually the last furlough 
to do any character event you haven't do. If you have been following this 
guide nicely up until this point. You should be able to access everyone's 
ending with little work.

Keeping the Sunset Quartz (Regina and Maggie ending not available)
------------------------------------------------------------------

Eliza last request will come, Levan will also notify you about
Silverneil.

Day one: Boomtown

1) Talk with Eliza - final request.
3) Talk with Mell - help her in shop (Eliza as customer).
3) Talk with Silverneil in front of the arena and fight her.

Day two: Boomtown

1) Invite Meline - place does not matter, what important is the 
conversation afterwards.
2) Talk with Mell - help her in shop (Leona as customer).
3) Invite Frayne to museum - check out her Sylm painting.

Day three: Boomtown

1) Talk to Mell - help her in shop (no customer).
At this point, you are done with all characters event on Boomtown, 
excluding Regina and Maggie, but it is pointless since you will 
not be able to finish their character quest without Lovers' Oak, 
so you might as well ignore them.
Do whatever you want for the rest of the day.

Day four: Marquelia

1) Talk with Vallery - finish his issue with the boy.
2) Talk with Alicia - pick the generic good guy choices.
3) Talk with Sydney - give her Sunset Quartz when prompted by 
your familiar.

With that, you will be able to access all endings on the last 
furlough, except for Regina and Maggie. To add insult to injury, 
you can only give Lovers' Oak to one of them, so you have no 
choice but to reply 8th furlough if you want the ending for 
either of them.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

#######################################
Alternate 8th Furlough [Modified Route]

following the guide up to this point, you will be missing one day needed 
to complete Mell character quest, in exchange to open Vallery and Sydney's

Afterwards, in modified or original path, proceed with the story until 
you beat Ludwing, then make seperate save for final furlough. Remember 
to bring Hien along in Ludwig fight to access his ending.

8th Furlough or 9th Furlough for another ending.

[End of Modified / Original Route]

##############
Dulkheim Route
##############

In Dulkheim route, all the furloughs you have done up to that point 
does not matter, as Dulkheim route has not character ending! 

However, it is still better for you to make a save branch for this 
route after doing 8th furlough, so you won't have to start a new 
game all over again.

Dulkheim route endings are;

1) Kill Ludwig right away when you first arrive in Dulkheim.

Show no mercy to all your former allies and kill them thoughout the 
story mission.

2) After the battle in Ordeneil entrance, do not give Byntir's report 
to Pamela, the game will end after the event with Ludwig and Lumis 
in hall.

Reload your save after the Ordeneil battle, and this time, give 
Pamela "Byntir's Report" like you would in modified route. 

With "Modified IntRod", you will be able to play the game until you 
beat Vester, and proceed to the epilogue of Dulkheim route for the 
rest of the endings.

3) Agree to help Ludwig.

4) Kill Ludwig, in the event with Cargill, choose to kill him, BUT 
YOU SHOULD PURPOSELY LET HIM ESCAPE.

5) Kill Ludwig, in the event with Cargill, choose to kill him.

6) Kill Ludwig, in the event with Cargill, tell him you want to a 
world domination. For this choice to be available, you have kill 
all your former allies (Baker, Eliza, Magnus, Hien, Remus, Leona, 
Frayne).
