    Introduction:
    =============
    
    Far East of Eden: Ziria is representative of a number of "firsts". It is the first console CD
    RPG created and the first game where Superviser Ouji Hiroi became noticed. Ouji Hiroi
    is the man behind the Red Company who has produced some of Japan's best selling
    character games such as Sakura Wars and Mistumete Knight.  Not only does he
    make games but he also writes scenarios for anime and some manga. Back to the game,
    there was also a Super CD version given away in 1992 as part of a Super CD-ROM^2
    promotion. The game itself remains unchanged but it now has a new illustrated cover.
    Far East of Eden is often credited with the success of the CD-ROM^2 peripheral as it
    is a traditional RPG like Dragon Quest and gave the machine its first real franchise.
    Unfortunately, this series has never been translated to English but hopefully this
    document will allow more gamers to know the splendor of this series.
    
    ==================
    Translation Notes:
    ==================
    
    First of all, I'd like to say that I'm by no means fluent in Japanese however I do know enough
    to play through most Japanese games and understand manga & anime unless there are
    some special science terms or the like. For this game, I use official romanizations
    whenever possible and translate names that I find appropriate to change. There may
    be some errors in the translation but for the most part I am confident that it is correct.
    
    ===================
    Story Introduction:
    ===================
    
    The game begins with Ziria training with his master, the Toad Hermit. After they
    finish and eat a meal, Ziria's master decides the time has come for him to
    discuss Masakado and the Fire Clan. A long time ago in the land of Jipang, a man
    named Masakado ravaged the land for his own desires. But when it appeared that
    everything had been engulfed by darkness, a group of people called the Fire Clan
    stood up against him. The battle with Masakado lasted 100 days and finally,
    Masakado's spirit was sealed inside the earth but nearly every member of the
    Fire Clan had died. Now, a group called Daimonkyou (Demon Cult) is attempting
    to resurrect Masakado. Ziria sets out to stop this group but he cannot do it alone...

    General Tips:
    =============
    
    - If at any time, a boss seems too tough, you NEED to level up.
    
    - You can hold button II down to dash but the encounter rate increases.
    
    - You can press select during battle for an auto fight option.
    
    - This is an RPG which means that all of the normal RPG "rules" apply.
    
    - Once anyone dies in your party, it's back to the last place you saved!
    
    - When you level up, you recover all of your HP and Skill points.
    
    - Always HEAL!
    
    - You receive experience when you get event items or reach an event.

    1. Tsukuba
    ==========
    
    Tsukuba Mountains
    =================
    
    You begin your journey in the Tsukuba Mountains. Talk with your master and all of the
    toads outside of the house to gain 80 ryou (the currency used in Jipang which is an actual
    old Japanese coin). You'll want to hurry to the town south of there to buy equipment
    because you have none!
    
    Tsukuba Village
    ===============
    
    Weapon Shop:
    15 Plain Long Sword
    30 Leather Clothing
    20 Leather Helm
    
    Item Shop:
     18 Toad Oil
     18 Straw Sandals
      2 Map of Tsukuba
    
    Inn:
    4
    
    Buy all 3 items in the weapon shop so you can equip a sword, helm and armor. In
    the village, you will also come across a person called Kaneda that looks like you
    and claims to be a Hero of the Fire Clan. He also talks in a peculiar way but
    he joins up with you.
    
    You might want to gain a level or two before tackling the cave to the south.
    
    Catfish's Cave
    ==============
    
    Once inside, you'll notice a rather large boulder known as a Death Stone is blocking
    one path. Moving the other way, Kaneda will tell you to go ahead. Finding nothing,
    head back and you'll see that Kaneda is really a tanuki. Defeat him and he will
    tell you to use the Large ?? on the huge catfish which will cause an earthquake that
    destroys the Death Stone.
    
    Tsuchiura Town
    ==============
    
    Weapon Shop:
    15 Plain Long Sword
    30 Leather Clothing
    60 Ninja Clothing
    20 Leather Helm
    
    Item Shop:
     18 Toad Oil
     18 Straw Sandals
      2 Map of Tsukuba
    
    Inn:
    10
    
    Bank
    
    This is the first time we've come across a bank. You can only deposit and withdrawal
    money in 1000 ryou portions and there is a maximum deposit limit of 65,000 ryou. There is a
    maximum holding limit of 32 items as well.
    
    Here's a translation of the menu:
    (Your browser will need to be able to read Japanese encoding.)
    
    貯金する       == Deposit Money
    貯金おろす     == Withdrawal Money
    道具 預ける   == Store Item
    道具 引き取る == Retrieve Item
    術 預ける     == Store Scroll
    術 引き取る   == Retrieve Scroll
    
    Talk to Koumon in the castle and he will give you the Blue Sword as well as lower the bridge.
    Prepare for a hard fight by buying some Toad Oil and head north to Bokuden's House.
    
    Bokuden's House
    ===============
    
    This is the abode of the famous swordsman Bokuden. Ziria must defeat him to learn
    a special critical attack. Bokuden will ask you if you wish to fight him. If you
    choose yes, the battle begins. Make sure to buy a few Toad Oil before this fight
    because he can be rather cheap sometimes and attack with his special move several
    times in a row! After defeating Bokuden, head east to Kumogiri Village.
    
    Kumogiri Village
    ================
    
    Item Shop:
     18 Toad Oil
     52 White Toad Oil
     60 White Crane Feather
      2 Map of Tsukuba
    
    Inn:
    5
    
    You will meet Kogama here who insists on joining you. Kogama is not a normal party
    member but will sometimes attack in battle and allows you to teleport between
    Kumogiri Villages. Also, there is a room where you can get free money as long as
    you are not touched by anyone in the room but it's a waste of time.
    
    Kashima Shrine
    ==============
    
    Weapon Shop:
    80 Samurai Katana
    60 Ninja Clothing
    25 Leather Helm
     5 Shuriken
    
    Item Shop:
     18 Toad Oil
     52 White Toad Oil
    250 White Serpent Stone
      2 Map of Tsukuba
    
    Inn:
    10
    
    In this village, you'll find that all of the people talking about how the animal
    god, White Deer, has been turned to stone by Daimonkyou tanukis and ask you to
    save him in the northern part of the village. You will only be attacked by Oni
    Tanukis while you are in the path with Tanuki statues on each side. Talk to the
    big red stone and you will receive the Wakakusa Scroll (a healing spell that
    restores 50 HP to any party member) from White Deer. You probably want to save
    up and purchase at least the Samurai Katana for the upcoming battles.
    
    Tanuki Cave
    ===========
    
    Items:
    Toad Oil
    50 ryou
    
    In this cave, you will encounter a number of tanukis posing as real people. The
    first you encounter is Tanuki Bokuden, which is easy to defeat. In fact, the next
    3 imposters: Tanuki Ziria, Tanuki Koumon, and Tanuki Toad Hermit are all rather
    easy. You will want to heal using a Toad Oil before fighting the Large Tanuki
    though. The Large Tanuki can heal itself and has a magic attack called Margo that
    hurts so fight carefully and use the Wakukusa technique when necessary.
    
    Kumogiri Village 2
    ==================
    
    Item Shop:
     18 Toad Oil
     52 White Toad Oil
    250 White Serpent Stone
     60 White Crane Feather
    
    Inn:
    5
    
    The villagers will tell you that their leader, Kumogiri, wants to teach you a new technique.
    You will find him in the northern part of the inn and learn the steal skill.
    A word of warning, everytime you attempt to steal and fail, the target enemy will gain attack
    power. Now, that you have reached another Kumogiri Village, you can use Kogama to
    teleport in between them. There is a gambling game in this village.
    
    Midou Town
    ==========
    
    Note: Bank, Inn and Shops not available until Goumon is defeated!
    
    Weapon Shop:
    130 New Moon Katana
     60 Ninja Clothing
     25 Leather Helm
      5 Shuriken
    
    Item Shop:
     18 Toad Oil
     52 White Toad Oil
    250 White Serpent Stone
     14 Map of Banmou
    
    Inn:
    15
    
    Bank
    
    After speaking with villagers, you'll notice something strange is going on. How
    come everyone is praising the Daimonkyou? In the church, the priest will ask if
    you believe in the Daimonkyou . Answer no and you'll have to fight the Large
    Tanuki again. Use the same tactics as before and you'll win. After the Large
    Tanuki's defeat, it will ask for forgiveness and tell you that Goumon, 1 of 13 of
    Daimonkyou's leaders, imprisoned the townspeople in the castle basement.
    Before going into the castle, head southwest to free an animal god.
    
    White Tanuki
    ============
    
    Southwest of Midou Town, White Tanuki has been sealed in stone like White Deer.
    Talk to him and you will gain the Konabi Scroll (a fire attack spell that does
    around 30 HP of damage).
    
    Midou Castle
    ============
    
    Items:
    Iron Key
    100 ryou
    Toad Oil
    
    In the upper levels, you'll need to get the Iron Key first so you can open the
    door to the imprisoned villagers. Afterwards, you will descend down into Goumon's
    chambers. The monsters here are tough and the Yatous can cast Margo on you so be
    careful! Don't worry about the extra items as you can go get them without fear of
    being attacked after beating the boss. Goumon will attack you right before the
    stairway all the way in the north. He has high HP and hard hitting attacks so be
    prepared to use Toad Oil and the Wakakusa technique a lot! After defeating him, go
    back to Midou Town if you wish or go up the stairs and you'll be in Banmou.
    
    =========
    2. Banmou
    =========
    
    Kumogiri Village 3
    ==================
    
    Item Shop:

     52 White Toad Oil
     60 White Crane Feather
     14 Map of Banmou
    
    Inn:
    10
    
    Just like the other Kumogiri Villages, you can get some free money. One of the
    villagers will tell you that the Slug Hermit is nearby.
    
    Slug Hermit
    ===========
    
    In a cave north of Kumogiri Village 3, you will find the Slug Hermit who will tell
    you about his pupil, Tsunade. He says that he will send word to Tsunade about you
    and that she is in school at the moment. Now, we journey north towards another
    village.
    
    Taida Village
    =============
    
    Weapon Shop:
    130 New Moon Katana
     60 Ninja Clothing
      5 Shuriken
     80 Tobikunai
    
    Item Shop:
     18 Toad Oil
     52 White Toad Oil

     14 Map of Banmou
    
    Inn:
    20
    
    Bank
    
    Tha Daimonkyou has destroyed the bridge in this village and no one can cut down the
    holy tree to use it as wood. The priest will tell you that he had a vision from god
    that told him that Ziria must find another Hero of the Fire Clan, the White Light
    Axe and then cut down the tree. Since you cannot cross the bridge, head west.
    
    
    Ashikaga School
    ===============
    
    At the school, you'll learn that Tsunade was in a fight and she then skipped school!
    In the library, you can read up on the Fire Clan, Daimonkyou and Masakado. When you're
    done, head west to the next village.
    
    Kikori Village
    ==============
    
    Item Shop:
     18 Toad Oil
     52 White Toad Oil
     18 Straw Sandals
    250 White Serpent Stone
    
    Inn:
    20
    
    The village chief here tells you that Tsunade is being a nuisance and would like you to
    take her away before she causes more damage. You can find Tsunade at the northern part
    of the village. After she joins you, talk to the village chief to get the White Light
    Axe for Tsunade. Head back to Taida Village and use the axe to chop down the holy tree
    so you can continue your quest.
    
    Hawai Village
    =============
    
    Item Shop:
     18 Toad Oil
     52 White Toad Oil
    250 White Serpent Stone
     27 Antidote
    
    Inn:
    FREE
    
    Not much to see here but you can pay some girls to see a dance. You might want to take
    advantage of the free inn and level up a bit. Note, that you cannot save in this village.
    
    Utsunomiya Town
    ===============
    
    Weapon Shop:
    620 Mountain Bandit Axe
    150 Wood Armor
      5 Shuriken
     80 Tobikunai
    
    Item Shop:

     52 White Toad Oil
     18 Straw Sandals
     14 Map of Banmou
    
    Inn:
    25
    
    In the castle, the courageous young Lord will tell you that his father is under
    the influence of Princess Tamamo, one of the Daimonkyou leaders. He asks if you
    will help him. If you select yes, he will give you the Lord's Sword and thank you.
    Hopefully, you have enough money from leveling up to buy the new armor and axe
    for Tsunade because there are tough battles ahead.
    
    Kumogiri Village 4
    ==================
    
    Item Shop:
     18 Toad Oil
     52 White Toad Oil
    250 White Serpent Stone
     27 Antidote
    
    Inn:
    10
    
    It's recommended that you buy at least 2 Antidotes here as the upcoming monsters
    will poison you and if you have no Antidote, you will die! Also, you might want to
    stock up on Toad Oil as the next boss can seal your magic.
    
    There's another gambling room here as well. The villagers are all talking about how
    the Great Lord has become infatuated with Princess Tamamo and how she has captured
    Tobei & imprisoned him in a nearby cave. She also has closed Nakoso Checkpoint and
    Shirakawa Checkpoint so no one can get through to Rikuu.
    
    Abukuma Cave
    ============
    
    Items:
    Toad Oil x2
    Raikou Scroll
    
    Focus on killing the slimes in here first as they can poison you. There are 2
    ladders in the first floor. The one all the way to the west leads to the next set of
    ladders while the other one leads to a Toad Oil. On the next floor, there are 3 sets
    of ladders. The ladders to the south lead to the Raikou Scroll while the other leads
    to the captured Toubei. Right before you reach Toubei, Princess Tamamo will attack
    you! She can cast Eleka which hurts both people in your party and Fuuma which seals
    your magic! Just keep at it and she will eventually fall but not permenantly.
    
    Nakoso Checkpoint
    =================
    
    Nothing to see here for now as the guards tell you to get lost.
    
    Inukami Village
    ===============
    
    Item Shop:
     18 Toad Oil
     52 White Toad Oil
     27 Antidote
    
    Inn:
    25
    
    Another animal god has been turned to stone in this village. Go to the northwest
    part of the village and free the White Dog to gain the Tsukine Scroll (casts sleep on
    one enemy).
    
    Shirakawa Town
    ===============
    
    Weapon Shop:
    210 Circular Moon Katana
    620 Mountain Bandit Axe
    150 Wood Armor
     80 Tobikunai
    
    Item Shop:
     18 Toad Oil
     52 White Toad Oil
    250 White Serpent Stone
     27 Antidote
    
    Inn:
    25
    
    Shirakawa Castle
    =================
    
    Items:
    Rakka Scroll
    200 ryou
    Toad Oil
    
    Like Toubei mentioned before, there are hidden staircases all over the castle.
    Once you go through the castle the first time you'll come to a dead end. Look at
    the screen carefully and you will see a staircase on the other side of the wall
    that does not have a counterpart on the previous floor. Go back down and search the
    area where the staircase should be and it will appear. REMEMBER, when you search,
    Ziria searches the area in front of him NOT the area he's standing on! Once you
    get to a room with a ton of staircases, you will find the Rakka Scroll (cuts an
    enemy's defense in half) in a box nearby. Just like in Midou Castle, you can get the
    treasures after the boss fight so don't worry about them now. There is 200 ryou in
    the room above the room all the way north and down one. There's also a Toad Oil in
    the room above the room all the way at the southwest corner. To get to the Lord of
    the castle, you need to get to the room to the right of where he is and then search
    the northwest block of the room to reveal a hidden staircase. Once you go through
    the two staircases, you will have to confront Princess Tamamo again. Her first form
    is just like before but when she transforms into Kyuubi she will cast spells that
    lower your defense and hit harder. This battle should not be difficult though. Just
    play intelligently and you'll win with ease. Talk with the Lord on the way down and
    he will reopen the Shirakawa Checkpoint.
    
    Shirakawa Checkpoint
    ====================
    
    Right before you step through the gates, a Death Stone falls from the sky and blocks
    the way! Go back to the Lord and tell him what happened. He will reopen the Nakoso
    Checkpoint. Go through there and you'll soon come upon Kumogiri Village 5.
    
    =========
    3. Rikuu

    Kumogiri Village 5
    ==================

     80 Mountain Sandals
     60 White Crane Feather
     50 Map of Rikuu
    
    Inn:
    15
    
    There's another gambling room and a room with free money here.
    The villagers are all talking about how the King of Rikuu has changed for the worse
    and that there is some trouble with the Oni Clan. Walk on over to the town to the
    west and see what's going on.

    King Akurou will attack when you talk to him so be prepared. He only has hard
    hitting attacks so heal carefully and you will prevail. Afterwards, King Akurou
    will tell you that he was forced to change due to Danjou, one of the Daimonkyou,
    kidnapping his child and will join you. He is not a regular party member though.

    One of the villagers will attempt to sell you a Large Hammer for 300,000 ryou.
    Just keep saying no and he'll eventually give it to you. Another person says
    that Hoteimaru, that crazy foreigner is looking for you. According to the
    villagers, Danjou's magic is invincible with his demon statue so do not fight him
    yet as he is waiting on the bridge right before the village all the way to the
    west. Instead head west then south to Nekoma Village.

    In this village, another animal god has been sealed. Go to the northern part of
    the village where there are 4 cat statues. Move into the water in the middle and

    Scroll (seals an enemy's magic) that is needed to battle Danjou.

    ====================
    
    Talk to Hoteimaru and you'll find out that he can create a Thunder Orb that can
    destroy Danjou's Demon Statue but he needs a small piece of the Death Stone. Use
    the Large Hammer on the Death Stone and Hoteimaru will create the Thunder Orb.
    
    Danjou
    ======
    
    This is not a difficult fight IF you seal his magic first! One of Danjou's attack
    spells can make most of your HP disappear in a second so keep sealing his magic
    if necessary.

    The Daimonkyou Rats have eaten up all of the rice so Danjou is using rice as bait
    for people to come to his castle. One villager will tell you that he saw someone
    go past the curtain in the back of the shrine. Search that area in the shrine to
    find a path that leads to a storage room. You will fight Danjou again here. Just
    use the same tactics as before. After his defeat, you will find Akurou's son and
    the Rat Key.

    Use the Rat Key on the iron door and proceed downwards. Just like boss dungeons
    before this, you can get the items later on. Once you get to the room full of
    souls, take the ladder all the way to the east. This path will lead to Danjou.
    Once you are in a room with a blue hue, you will fight Danjou three times. It is
    recommended that Ziria be at least at level 16 and you should stock up on White
    Toad Oil and White Serpent Stone. You MUST have Ziria seal his magic by using the
    Kinin technique. If Danjou breaks the seal, cast the magic again. If you do not,
    he will cast Magnald which will almost kill one party member and he will also be
    able to cast Healer to recover 80 HP. After each battle, make sure to heal. After
    defeating him a third time, he will transform into Hameln. The tactics are the same
    for him so do not become lax! After he is defeated, use the Thunder Orb on the statue
    and leave.

    Note that you cannot save in this town. The townspeople will tell you that the White Serpent is
    waiting for you. Talk to her and you will learn that Orochimaru, Hero of the Fire Clan, does not
    believe in the ancient legend. She asks you to find the Serpent Orb which should convince him
    otherwise. In the inn, you will find the girl that all the men in the town are talking about and you
    can recover your HP by searching the water. Not sure why you would want to do that instead of
    just resting for free. A famous swordsman named Musashi also lives here. Challenge him to gain
    the Musashi Slice. Musashi can inflict a lot of damage so have Ziria use the Wakakusa technique
    while Tsunade and Kogama attack him. Since the White Serpent is blocking the path north, we
    travel east.

    Once you come to a dead end in the cave, you will notice that there is something in the water.
    If you search there, you will be attacked by a Dark Centipede. These monsters are all over the
    caves and you must use them to cross over to otherwise unreachable parts. On your way
    through, you will come across a box that is unreachable by the Dark Centipede. Go south and you
    will encounter a Large Centipede. The Large Centipede has a good number of HP so fight carefully
    and heal when necessary. Once the beast has been defeated, cross over and grab the White
    Serpent Orb. Go back to the hot springs and talk to the popular girl and you will discover it's
    really Orochimaru in disguise! He takes the Serpent Orb and laughs when he realizes that
    the White Serpent thought he would change his mind upon seeing it. He runs off leaving a letter for
    Ziria with the White Serpent. Reading the letter, you discover that Orochimaru is a ninja for the
    Shogun who has treated him like a son. Orochimaru asks Ziria for more time as he will use his
    own methods to destroy the Daimonkyou and convince the Shogun of their evil intentions.
    With nothing more to see, head north to the land of Mutsu.

    Ape Sake in front of the mirror in the shrine and you will confront Mantou. He will
    often attempt to use a hard hitting technique that causes around 80 HP of damage
    so be prepared to have Ziria use the Ibuki technique while Tsunade uses White Toad
    Oil to heal. Attack when you feel confident about your HP status and victory will come
    easily. Once defeated, talk with Sae and the villagers. You will learn that the
    inn hostess has quit! Hrm... Anyway, head back to Mogami to talk with the ferry
    master who will take you across the water way.

    Juubei's House
    ==============
    
    Like the 2 famous swordsman before him, Juubei will teach Ziria a special attack if you can
    defeat him and he can be rather cheap. Keep your HP near maximum and just keep attacking
    to win. Afterwards, head back to Suwa Lake Village and you will find a lady that passes on
    somethign Orochimaru said. If you look in a mirror and raise your right hand, what hand is
    raised on the mirror's side? Basically, he means that in the mansion, think of it as a mirror.
    So, enter the mansion from where the door would be if reversed. Inside the mansion, everything
    is reversed as well meaning that if you exit a room in the south direction, you are really exiting
    from the north. Grab the Water Mirror here and head out to the stone on the south part of the village.
    Use the Water Mirror here and cross over to the south part of the village.

    Salt Mountains
    ==============
    
    Items:
    Leather Clothing
    Toad Oil
    Elixir
    Kinjuu Scroll
    
    Go to the back of the mountain where the lake is and search the mountain to find the entrance.
    Tsunade will refuse to enter the Salt Mountains as salt is a slug's only weakness according
    to her. Once you enter, you will come across the Dark Shadow. He will join you as a regular
    party member. Look at his equipment and you notice he has none! So, go back to Koufu Town
    and buy some equipment for Oro...er Dark Shadow. Make sure you have space to get more scrolls
    because Dark Shadow has 9 scrolls already. After you're prepared, go back and get ready for another
    boss fight. The first floor is fairly straight forward. Just head to the southwest corner and go up the
    staircase. There are a number of hidden holes in the next few floors so walk carefully. In the second floor,
    you want to go north but make sure you walk in the bottom part of the hallway while moving horizontally
    or you will run into hidden holes. On the 3rd floor, move south in the right part of the hallway to avoid
    another hidden hole. Use the southeast staircase first to get to a box containing a Kinjuu Scroll (seals
    all enemies' magic). Go back to the saircase in the middle and go up. You will eventually end up at a
    dead end but you will finda hidden hole that drops you in front of Douman but there are 2 more hidden
    holes here. Make sure to ONLY move north if Douman is directly north of you. Talk to him and he will
    tell Orochimaru to stop hiding. Orochimaru will then say he has been investigating the Daimonkyou
    and is now ready to become one of the Heroes of the Fire Clan. Douman is actually a pushover.
    Have Orochimaru use his Hyouryuu spell until it runs out while Ziria attacks and heals when
    necessary. After your win, make sure to get the Slug Orb and just fall down some holes to get out
    quickly. Go back to Koufu Castle and talk to Lord Gorunushi who directs you to use the cave under
    the castle.

    Kageginu Scroll
    Demon Sword Murasama
    
    There are no items to be found on the hike up Mount Fuji but you will find a lot of enemies.
    This will seem like an endurance dungeon as it is the longest you have encountered yet.
    Once you reach the top, enter the hole to begin your descent to the Underground City. At the
    bottom floor, there are a number of small rooms with boxes that are locked. Move in a
    clockwise direction until you reach a shrine. Inside is the White Dragon who will open all
    of the locked chests. You can get all the items now or wait until after the fight with Princess
    Ito so you can avoid enemy encounters. There are a number of useful items though such as
    new weapons for Orochimaru and Ziria and 3 scrolls for Ziria: Jinen (most powerful fire spell

    to one party member) and Tenrai (most powerful lightning spell that hits all enemies and causes
    around 90 HP of damage). You will find Princess Ito waiting for you in the southwest corner. Talk
    to her and she will ask you to join the Daimonkyou. Answer no and she will transform into
    Tarantue and attack. Have Tsunade attack, Orochimaru use the Hyouryuu spell as much as
    possible and Ziria use Jinen when possible and heal when necessary.

    Another Daimonkyou infested town, but you can max out your money here! There is a new
    specialty shop here with a bunch of useless expensive items and 2 shrines blocked
    by Daimonkyou members. You will need 1100 ryou to get through but only go into the left
    one and prepare for an unusual boss fight. Talk to Gouyokku, one of the Daimonkyou leaders,
    and he'll ask you if you will sell Tsunade to him for 1000 ryou. Answer no and he'll ask
    you again except he'll offer 1,000,000 ryou. Answer no again and he will attack. Offensive
    attacks are useless against him. Ziria must use his steal skill while Orochimaru and
    Tsunade pretty much do nothing but heal. Here's where you can max out your money.
    Make sure you have deposited all the money you can in the bank. The first steal off of
    Gouyokku usually nets you around 45,000 ryou so intentionally lose the fight and you
    will still have half the money. You can repeat this as many times as you want but your
    personal holding limit is 65,535 ryou. After he is defeated, search the northwest corner and
    you will discover stairs leading down. On the first floor, you will come to 5 boxes. The left box
    contains 2000 ryou and the right box is hiding the staircase to the next floor. On the 2nd floor,
    the middle box in the top row contains 4000 ryou and the staircase is hidden under the
    right box in the top row. On the 3rd floor, the middle box contains 5500 ryou and the hidden
    staircase is under the left box in the bottom row. On the 4th floor, the left box on the bottom
    row holds 7000 ryou while the right box in that row hides the staircase to the bottom level.
    Open the only box and you will confront Gouyokku again who will transform into an orc looking
    creature. The strategy is the same here except Ziria may miss his steal attempts which will
    increase Gouyokku's attack power greatly. Have Orochimaru cast Ishihebi and then heal
    when necessary. After you win, head east to Hakone Checkpoint which is now not blocked.

    DO NOT USE any staircases that lead up as you will get mowed down by Karakuri
    Soldiers. Check your items and you will notice that you do not have any! Move
    east and use the staircase to go down. On this floor, you will meet the leader
    of the Kumogiri Villages who will give Ziria the Kumogiri Scroll (drains an
    enemy's MP). The pool of water next to him will fully heal you and the man to the
    south will let you save. Further south, you will meet with Tsunade. Go down the
    pathway behind her and eventually you will meet up with Hoteimaru who tells you
    that he was forced to create the Karakuri Soldiers but he has found something
    interesting for you, a Clay Robo made by the god of Jipang. Its only weakness is
    water but you can use it in battle for now. It takes one turn to come up before
    attacking so yo uare forewarned. Now, find Priest Namagusa who will give you a key
    that he found. Go back up to the floor where you can save and find the sparkling
    gold on the side of the wall. Fill up every party member's inventory screen with
    the gold which can be sold for 10,000 ryou a piece in a shop. Return to the floor
    you originally started on and go up the staircase at the end of the north pathway.
    Upon entering the floor, you will see Orochimaru who will join you again. From here
    on you will be attacked by the Karakuri Soldiers, so be cautious. You can either use
    the Clay Robo and attack or have Ziria cast Nigemizu. Move in a somewhat counter
    clockwise motion starting in the area to the right of where Orochimaru stood and
    you will find a staircase that leads up. Go north on this floor and eventually you
    will each a door. Use the key you received from Priest Namagusa and go up the stairs.
    You're finally out of there! Now, you will have to fight the Invincible King. Move
    eastward and you will see an old man. Talk to him and the Invincible King will attack.
    All you have to do is let the Clay Robo do all the damage while everyone in the
    party stays alive. Once the not so Invicible King falls, move to the end of the
    port and Tsunade will comment that you should get some of the gold. Lucky for you,
    your bags are full of gold. Just move into the water and you'll be transported to
    Chiba Village.

    The villagers will tell you that all of the able men have been dragged to the

    right pipe. In the next room, go into the left pipe now. Again, use the left pipe. Now,
    you will be in a room with a set of pipes to the right. Use the middle pipe and prepare
    to battle Suioumaru. You MUST have Ziria seal his magic or he will cast Blizzard
    which not only hurts you but also paralyzes you! Have Orochimaru use the Hihebi

    Before you can reach the sealed White Toad, Suioumaru appears. He transforms into Kraken and
    attacks. Like the battle with Suioumaru, Ziria MUST seal Kraken's magic or it will use attack

    The villagers tell you that all of the animal gods are waiting for you in the
    shrine. Upon talking to the White Dragon, he will give you the Magical Sword
    which nets you 15,808 experience points. Drop the sword and talk to it again to
    receive another sword and another 15,808 experience points! It is STRONGLY
    RECOMMENDED that you level Ziria up to level 65 using this trick as the upcoming
    castles and enemies are DIFFICULT at lower levels. At level 65, many monsters will
    run from you, even Karakuri Soldiers! You can mow down regular enemies and bosses like they
    are nothing.

    him down.
    
    Iwatsuki Town

    technique to cross the posioned areas safely. Grab the Ariake Scroll (recovers 150 HP to
    each party member). Go north and you will find a stairway that leads back to the main floor.
    You will see two staircases in the middle, go up the top one. This path leads to Genoumaru
    who will cast a mysterious sleep spell on everyone and call forth Kongouki. After finishing the demon,
    Genoumaru will attack and then transform into Beliel once you hurt him enough. Just fight carefully
    to win.

    now. Move on to the next floor and you will encounter  Karmen Karmen's Spirit. In the center
    of the room, you will notice a staircase. That just leads to a Horned Helm. The real staircase lies
    under a box to the southwest of the center. Take the hidden set of stairs down and you will
    fight Carmille's Spirit before reaching the treasure chest with the Slug Orb. Go back to the
    top floor and now take the right staircase.
    
    Items:
    White Toad Oil
    God Elixir
    Magical Orb
    Serpent Orb
    
    (There are probably more items here but I was half asleep while playing.)
    
    Use the bottom stairway out of the left set of stairs. This path will lead to a room with a number of boxes
    in the south end. The Serpent Orb is in the box that is 2nd to the right. Mantou's Spirit is blocking the way
    but you can easily kock off this stupid ape. Go back up to the first floor and use the center staircase.
    Move north once you are the next floor. Do not move near the statues as you will fall down a floor. Just
    keep moving to the northeast corner. Along the way you will fight Goumon's Spirit, Gouyokku's Spirit,
    and Douman's Spirit but they should be little than an annoyance for you.
    
    Now that you have reached the bottom floor, once you step off of the stairs, Tarantue's
    Spirit will attack. You will have to move in a clockwise manner to get into the middle.
    Along the way, you will fight Kraken's Spirit, Invincible King's Spirit and
    Beliel's Spirit. They should all be no problem but they may take awhile to beat.
    Just use auto battle and watch the carnage, After you have fought Belial, you should
    be close to the middle, just walk north and you will find Jashinsai. After beating him,
    he will transform into Lucifellar. This fight needs to be taken a bit more seriously even
    though you are really powerful. Lucifellar has many status attacks that can leave you vulnerable
    so do pay attention and heal when necessary. When Lucifellar is dead, you're almost done...
    Go up to the statue and Masakado will attack. Just have everyone use their respective orbs.
    This will use HP but now Masakado cannot kill you. Keep healing and using the orbs together
    and this game is over!
