FEDA - The Emblem of Justice SNES game produced by Yanoman and Max entertainment. Released 1994. Forewords: Some translated names maybe incorrect as I have yet found any site putting up translated names of locations and characters. This walkthrough is intended for SNES version of the game. Differences in Saturn version 'FEDA remake' will be discussed in Pointers section. Translating all conversation can be fun but too time-consuming for me and SK. All conversation shows what the character is like. Brian may be exhausted but he is a calm thinker. Ain has weird temper and perks (he prefers warm bed in cozy tavern). Sadly I will not take up the task of translating. FEDA2 is out on PS for years but I am still unable to get it. Please feel free to email me if you spot anything missing or wrong. Updates: -09 Jul 01 3rd update. Completed all areas. Included all possible endings. -12 Jun 01 2nd update. Corrected major mistakes in translation of names. Currently I am still unable to get the correct English names of all locations, 8 characters and all enemy units. The introduction is also on SNES version, not only Sega Saturn. Added item lists in Pointers section. -08 Jun 01 1st update. Include area 3,4,5,6. Corrected little mistakes here and there. Still looking for more grammatical and spelling errors. -28 May 01 1st version of this walkthrough. CONTENTS 1.

Comments and acknowledgements ============== 1. WALKTHROUGH ============== ------- Opening ------- "Ohh, *Mildoras Garld my mother. How many millions' blood and rubble have you drunk? ... Do you want images of endless killing and destruction to burn a permanent mark on you eyes? ... Loving Mildoras Garld, may there be not answer from you, let our moans be carved on the earth!" *Mildoras Garld is the name of the land. Old calendar 5036, month of Eye-birth(October), 13th day. The racial war that has being going on for 600 years has a major turn. A new power Balfomauria uses ancient-sealed final weapon "Ending 4 wisemen" in war zone Phantom. Power balance collapsed. Tide of war turned against human-centred old government. New battles break out as Balfomauria completely rules the land. About 400 years later, 1st year of New Genesis, month of Victory(June), 8th day. The war, that lasts 1000 years, is ended by demi-human-centred Balfomauria, in order to bring peace to the land. This near eternal 1000-year war is called "Millennium Nightmare War". Every race's history is left with a deep scar. ------------------------ Area0 The Introduction ------------------------ This part happens 2 months before Brian arrives at Bazeru mountain. A cargo dragon flying high above, is carrying the security control unit Gul Performance. Alnos the leader is briefing everyone, among sat Brian and Ain. The objective is simple: kill everyone in sight. After landing in Bado village, the unit goes into action. Brian is stunned as all his targets are helpless villagers. At the other end of the village, Alnos slowly raise his spear to finish off an Alsidean girl. Brian immediately stops Alnos. After confusion, Brian stares in disbelief as his blade sinks into Alno's bleeding shoulder... After a few weeks, Brian sits in a prison cell alone. He has a visitor, who is none other than Ain. They are tired of current situation and without much thought, they decide to break out of prison. Both of them fight hard but are out-numbered and surrounded. Flashes come out of little pellets dropped from above. It is Dora. Three of them seize the chance to escape and set off for the mountains. ---------------------------------------------------- Area1 The compensation of infamy (Omei-no-daishou) ---------------------------------------------------- Troubled by desertion from a security control unit, Empire army government sent special Tusk unit Bloody Rose after the 3 deserters. The command sheet received by Bloody Rose contains only one instruction "Immediate punishment upon discovery". "2 months after incident at Bado village...We escaped into middle of Bazeru mountain, west of Skuderia government house. With not much expectation and following Ain's suggestion, we decide to leave this continent. It is not due to fear of pursuers from empire army as we are tired of fighting to survive. At the moment, we cannot decide how to stay out of the Empire's attention." -Brian Stelbart, Ain Macdougal and Dora Systeel move down the mountain.

They want to move on as Bazeru village will soon be noticed by the empire. A report arrived: empire flying dragon transport is approaching the village.

He wants Eris and his follower Elle Northwind to join their party even after Ain insists that their party is not necessary fighting for justice and want teacher not to have funny hopes of Brian bringing peace to the land. (*Eris and El will not join if unit's reputation is chaos.) "Our escape has unexpectedly leads us to the meeting with Arcadian liberation army. What's happening...but more importantly is the overflowing sense of relief after leaving the army. I certainly think that we are not people who'll get any attention from the liberation army. These happenings may just be a suitable compensation for infamy." --------------------------------------- Area2 Devil's Feast (Akuma-no-kyouen) --------------------------------------- Northwest of Skuderia, there is a laboratory under *Cobalt's control. Men who participated in liberation activities are separated from family and sent there. The empire army repeatedly conducts disgusting human experiments in this facility... *Cobalt Axiaysus - governor of Skuderia. Race is Gurunareim. "By strange chance we are being accepted and allowed to head for west coast.

Roiss will only provide information of the laboratory after Brian does something about the monk. Exit west of the village. -Go West to Ryoukan's Mansion. All the women mention that Ryoukan is not as bad as rumored. After a round of combat, Ryoukan surrenders and promises to return all women. He is hatching a plan to attack the laboratory but is unable to carryout as he is alone. He passes Brian the key to the gate of the laboratory and joins (*Ryoukan will not join if unit's reputation is law). -Return to Rubens village.

The liberation force urgently needs someone in Yanikk port but there is no soldier to spare here, and they cannot just use any wandering deserters. The only solution is for Brian's party to become the 3rd guerilla unit. In return, Koumei will pay Brian so that he can afford the trip to mainland. He also ordered Jim and Wishbone to follow the unit and handle the logistics. Roiss and Shane will formally join the unit. (*Shane will not join if unit's reputation is chaos.) "My settlement with the empire is done. Alnos is dead and people of this area are released a little from the clutches of death. Our actions have led us to be involved with the liberation force. The infamy is being covered up and not being revealed...Addition to guerilla unit in liberation, may it be god's decision, may it be fate..." ---------------------------------------- Area3 Dancing sand storm (Sajin-rambu) ---------------------------------------- Due to suppressive military power of the empire and complete control politic led by Cobalt Axiaysus, previous localized racial liberation movements are unable to carry out in all Skuderia.

Brian's unit receives mixed welcome by the liberation soldiers. Some hail them as heroes who rescued Andera, some dislike them because they are only a informal guerilla unit and mercenaries. Most of the liberation soldiers are trained but inexperienced, unlike Brian and Ain. Enter the large house, enter left door, a meeting is in progress. Koumei makes Brian and Ain a formal member of the liberation and bestows upon them officer's ranks. "We complete escorting teacher Andera to liberation's headquarter Flatmetro.

I seem to be able to grab the meaning of fighting..." ------------------------------------------------- Area6 Trap of Sacred Precincts (Seiiki no wana) ------------------------------------------------- Year of New Genesis. With restored Andora Balzak as chairman, Arcadian conference is formed. The formation of the conference has given Arcadian liberation army big hopes. Summarized funds and manpower increased. From central to northern region, Balfomauria's power in cities continuously diminishes. "With liberation's renewed advance, our guerilla unit receives an order 'Protect Pope Omotto at Holy-land Kyuuru!'. By looking busy with the protection of the Pope who formerly governs the power of the church, the conference wants to bluff the empire senate. There is no intention for the church to become strategic ally of the liberation. We head for Kyuuru lake which is currently under Bart Balthukus control." -Bart Balthukus is delivering a speech on current situation. He orders all personal to strengthen the security and show ones with intention to revolt the power of Balfomauria.

Ain volunteers to take care of the bandits to gain villager's support for liberation. -Talk to Koumei in the base anytime. He informs Brian that currently liberation completely controls Skuld desert and steadily liberates towns and villages to the north. Brian's guerilla unit is entrusted with an operation to confuse the enemy, codenamed "Lake Kyuuru". Brian is to deliver a letter from Andera to The Pope.

He tells Brian to talk to the elder at 2nd floor of the tavern to open the gate. Go to tavern at bottom right, go to 2nd floor and talk to the elder. The elder is worried about the Pope and opens the gate for Brian even through empire army ordered him not to. -Go south to Kyuuru gate.

The Pope has been waiting for Brian. The illusion in Skuld temple is his. His whole name is Omotto Axiaysus, uncle of Cobalt. Because the Pope has never show his face in the public, nobody knows that he is a Gurunareim. He needs Brian to stop Cobalt's ambition as it will lead to destruction of the land. The land east of continent of Balfomauria is called Phantom-zone. There was once a flourishing city but now no life can be found. It is the result of using "Ending 4 wise-men", in another word, an aftermath of the sword's explosion blast. After the incident, a new race called Gurunareim appears on the land...Legends say that it is Gurunareim who uses the final weapon. The Pope is unsure which happens first, the mutation or use of final weapon. One certain thing is: the final weapon is for the chosen convicts, the Guranareims to cleanse the world. One of the "4 wise-men" is Executor. The Pope and Andera meeting with Brian is it fated or due to unknown connection, has happened. Whether Brian uses own strength to break free from or be played by fate, is up to Brian to decide. The Pope has to stays as it is his duty to protect the temple and Cobalt cannot do anything to him. "After confirming the Pope is safe from Balfomauria, no, from Cobalt's evil clutches, the operation ends. But, Executor's power can be used as "Ending 4 wise-men" is true...There is a heavy load on us. On the way, I am thinking about Tusk. My chest fills with the pressure from my mission with the final weapon...These are things that I am unable to relate to even my Wolfling partner." ---------------------------------------- Area7 Victory of death (Shi no Gaisen) ---------------------------------------- Following the pace of the 4 commodores, Arcadian army advances unexpectedly fast to the south and decides invading largest city in the south, Belkrad. Being a supply point, snatching this area from empire will military and economically wise improve the state of war for liberation army.

The successful liberation of cities in all regions are credited to guerilla's effort in stopping the empire's pace of advancement. The senate in mainland will surely react. As a soldier, Brian only knows how to defeat enemies he is facing and is uninterested in politics. The current operation is to capture Belkrad before empire propriety starts counterattack. Belkrad is the second largest city in Skuderia after Ruksodol. It is a key source of production of metal for empire. With it firmly in Arcadian control, negotiation with the senate will be easier. The guerilla unit is to attack the supply line to divert Belkrad's troops. The guerilla will suddenly move south then invade Belkrad. Liberation army cannot spare any resource for reinforcement, Brian's unit has to work alone.

Soldiers at the meeting express their fear of speaking ill of their governor. Luke rebutes that his judgement of Cobalt is impartial as empire has lost north of Skuderia to liberation, proving Cobalt's decision is flawed. Flare Darkwood enters bringing news that Colossus has arrived in Belkrad on command of Cobalt, for the purpose of defeating 'the particular unit'. Flare has her ways of handling the guerillas and wants Luke not to interfere. Luke suspects that Cobalt distrusts him and is left with no choice but to return to main unit. The supply unit is late. A subordinate volunteers to investigate on behalf of Luke. -Travel south to the forest. A mysterious voice welcomes Brian. Brian immediately identifies it as Flare's. His expliots have earned him a nickname: Phantom of Faust. Even as a commodore, Flare likes to see Brian in person. She advises Brian to turn back if he values his life. Brian refuses flatly. Flare seals off the entrance and promises to show Brian a word of fear. Brian and Ain begin to feel weird and heavy. Tollman warns that it is Flare's world of illusion. -Go west first. Brian and Ain run into Sherry Laqusomacus. She thought Ain has come to save her. She has sticked her head too deep into empire's affair and is trapped here by Flare. She is worried-sick after Ain disappeared few years ago. Brian asks whether Sherry knows a way out and she suggests getting a confession out of empire units wandering in the forest.

Only Luke is remaining. Luke is at upper floor, issuing warning for liberation force to retreat from empire's territory. Roiss rushes up and wants her father Luke to listen to her plea. Luke is surprised that his daughter who detests fighting has switched side to the liberation...Roiss feels that it is sarcastic that she and Luke can talk like father and daughter only under these conditions. Brian says everyone is shouldering own destiny when fighting...nobody else can interfere on this. Luke laughs that Brian is still young and as a betrayer to empire, he is not knowledgeable enough to talk about destiny. In battlefield, fighters are nothing but chess pieces. A soldier who does not discern about his part will soon lose his life. This is the destiny of soldier Luke believes in. Roiss concludes that it is due to this destiny Luke abandons she and her mother. Luke teaches Brian's party what ground they are really standing on by picking one-to-one duel with Brian. During the duel, Roiss gets caught in and Brian is distracted. Luke seizes the chance to deliver a special attack. Luke says that Brian is not trained enough not to lose awareness of oneself during battle in any situation. Brian replies that he is not longer a phantom of war. Luke assesses the situation and orders a retreat. He spares Brian's life, orders Roiss to quit liberation and return, before leaving. -Ain will temporary take over the duty of unit leader. "What begins as a day of hope turned into day of disaster. Brian suffers severe injury on his left arm and is warded in Belkrad's hospital.

Continual firm streams of people joining Arcadian are appearing. But, news of 3rd Guerilla unit leader Brian Stelbart being defeated by enemy commodore is not known by anyone. After empire force retreats, Belkrad is left with many weapons. Among the weapons, mobile-type laser-eye has become liberation's main weapon, gathering high hope from the upper levels of the army. "With Brian's absence, the guerillas receive new order to acquire Odin's eye, a main component of laser-eye. Destination is Geese forest, a place with no strategic value, but exaggeratingly frightening... There is nothing more frightening facing the empire with only minute liberation force, than the *commanders who made the decision to." *Ain is referring to Koumei and Tollman. -Koumei meets up with Ain's party. Belkrad has become liberation's new focal point in Skuderia. Andera will move to Belkrad during the next term. Koumei reassures that the guerilla's activities will remain in Skuderia's history. He also inquires about Brian before going to mission briefing. Beyond northeast of the river, taking 3 day's journey from here is temple of Geese. Travel there to get a metal called 'Odin's eye'. It may seem an easy task but the forest is filled with fearful monster from ancient times. Ain does not give a thing about these monsters. -Talk to Koumei anytime in base (optional).

Ain is optimistic even with Brian not around. -Tom will be blocking the entrance to female quarters and insisting on not letting Ain in unaccompanied as Tom feels unsafe leaving Ain alone with the female.

A nurse replied that they have moved south. The nurse is Mamirina and will be taking care of him until he recuperates. She gives Brian medicine and he falls into slumber. -In Brian's memory...Tusk was trying to tell Rucia something. Brian had brought Kesuketo fruits for everyone to eat. On seeing Brian, Tusk said he had something on and left in haste. -The next scene, Brian and Tusk were preparing to leave the village. Rucia followed them to the village entrance. She could not understand why both of them had to join the war. Brian wanted to protect the village and reputation of human race. A task that cannot be left to others. Brian was tired of escaping and wanted the war to end. Rucia made them promised that they would certainly come back. Tusk left first. Brian knew Rucia had something to say to Tusk, but she simply did not want Tusk to have too many worries. Without Rucia saying anything, Brian promised to bring Tusk back after war. Until that day Rucia must live well. -Brian wakes up again. He does know what happened to Tusk but vows to bring Tusk back to Rekusaru village, back to Rucia. -Go north.

Rasetsu shows Tobikage how powerful his Shinobi's skill is by creating multiple images of himself. Brian sees through the fakes and attacks. Rasetsu is surprised and treats Brian's party as worthy opponents. Area9 Battle61 Jigen-jou (3) Objective: Defeat Rasetsu. Opponent: Rasetsu Jaou x3 Shigontsukai x2 Rokusen x2 Virude leech x2 Zeruto fix x2 Reward: 1000, 45exp -Rasetsu believes in bringing peace to the land by not going against Cobalt. Cobalt possesses such immense power unseen on this land that he can reach out to mainland at anytime. For the sake of common people, Cobalt's power should not be opposed. Before Tobikage sends Rasetsu off to their master for apology, Rasetsu asks why Tobikage trains the skill of shinobi. Tobikage replies that it is to seek a way of living, place for death. Rasetsu concludes their ideals will forever differ. Rasetsu explodes after Tobikage finishes him, selecting the castle that proves his existence as his final resting place. "Well-known for martial skills among 4 commodores, Rasetsu took a grand death. I can never understand Tobikage and Rasetsu way of living. The empty feeling of fighting creeps upon me. One of the orders received by guerillas, 'create disturbance among 4 commodores', is continuously increasing in effect. A darkness can be seen in revolution, this is..." ---------------------------------------------- Area10 Operation Illusion (Iryu-jon Sakusen) ---------------------------------------------- Fierce activities of Guerillas break the treats from 4 commodores. Riding on the wave, the liberation army advances until Magenta Line. The empire is only left with an area to the south in control. But, what the empire is driving at is the activation of 'Executor' by Cobalt, which nobody is aware of. At another end, first revolution discussion meeting is held in Belkrad with the Pope participating. "After the fight with Rasetsu, I start to have a feeling that empire recognizes us as formable power...Even so, there are still 3 commodores and Cobalt...Other than us, who else can actually turn on Cobalt and his organization?...grabbing my attention more than anything is Tusk's matter..." -At first revolution discussion meeting. Andera thanks the Pope for taking the trouble to travel a long distance to attend the meeting. Arcadia will soon liberate 70% of Skuderia from the empire. Andera has the unanimous support from people of Skuderia but it is not enough for Arcadia liberation to go against the whole empire. The empire force from mainland can easily crush the liberation in Skuderia. A way to rectify this possible treat is for Pope Omott to be the governor of Skuderia. To gain empire senate's approval for this, the liberation has to get the 'Executor' from Cobalt. -Brian's party discusses the nest step, which is to wait at town of Sentpall for the return of Koumei. They wonder what the higher levels are planning but Brian says it is none of their concerns. -Move east. Area10 Battle62 Sentpall town Objective: Wait 4 turns. Opponent: Neinhaus x3 Skullbelt x3 Necromancer x2 Rikutoha-ken x2 Reward: 550, 40exp -Talk to the elder in the house in the middle to learn about a legend from an ancient song.

Konory steps up as she heard something calling for her. A path opens up on the rock wall. They travel farther into the mountain. A white dragon descends from the mountain peak and talks to Konory. It warns about the sword's power and passes the power to stop the sword to Konory. -Travel south to the road junction. Koumei caught up with Brian's party after waiting in town. A meeting regarding the details of entering Ruksodol will be held in town of Erumeran to the east. Andera and the Pope will make special appearance there. Brian has to pass through an area controlled by Flare to reach the town. -Go east. Area10 Battle64 Hades plain (1) Objective: Defeat the 2 Necromancers. Opponent: Skullbelt x3 Bale-corpse x3 Necromancer x2 Gurosu Vaua- x2 Reward: 700, 40exp -Flare in her castle, wondering why Cobalt is making such a fuss over a mere sword, putting in too much trust on Tusk. She knows nothing about the '4 wise-men' and felt that her magic should be put to better use. A trooper enters, bringing orders from Luke to destroy the guerillas in the area. Flare receives and playfully puts a curse on the trooper before he flees. -Move north. Area10 Battle- Hades plain (2) Objective: Defeat all enemy units.

"Defeated Flare...the Flare who has fearful magical power...but Cobalt shows no sign of action. What is Cobalt up to now..." ------------------------------ Area11 Collision (Gekitostu) ------------------------------ Balfomauria empire senate acknowledges the decision from Arcadia democratic meeting and recognizes Skuderia's autonomy. Reason behind is the severing of ties between the senate and self-proclaimed emperor Cobalt. The control on the movements of Cobalt and his army is being entrusted to the liberation. In another word, the liberation is made to shoulder a very heavy burden... "The success of the revolution can be seen. The liberation starts disarmament and democratic rule is greatly welcomed. The guerillas like us are into fulfilling the obligation. Cobalt's presence is still a treat, as 'the ending 4 wise-men' Executor is not yet resting in its scabbard..." -Cobalt asks Tusk about Executor. Tusk is able to bring out its power but still has not brought the sword fully under his control. Cobalt is satisfied and wants Tusk to use the sword's power again soon. Tusk alerts that the use will certainly damage friendly units as well as towns and villages nearby. Those means nothing compared to removing the treat of liberation army reaching out for Rukusodol. Cobalt reminds Tusk of their ambition to build a stronger and more stable Skuderia. -Inside town of Erumeran. Go to house top-right most. Koumei and Andera update Brian on current situation. The last requirement for peace and final order for the guerilla is: the defeat of Cobalt, or the retrieval and sealing of 'Executor'. Ain is mad about the plan, as Brian's unit will need to infiltrate deep into the enemy to accomplish the mission. Brian is silent. Exit the town through north.

Opponent: Ma-ku trooper x2 Moruguraize x2 Rikutoha-ken x2 Farudo mage x2 Zeruto fix Reward: 1540, 80exp -Go up the stair to at top of the map. Tusk asks why Brian continues to fight even after liberation has started disarmament. Brian replies that true peace can never come with Cobalt still around. Using Executor will just result in meaningless bloodshed. Tusk is disappointed at what Brian has turned into and challenges Brian in a showdown upstairs. Ain encourages Brian on and promises to take down Cobalt regardless of outcome. -Brian asks why Tusk is so loyal to the empire. Tusk in return asks why Brian never returns to Rucia after the Millenium War, is it due to hesitation or compassion to Tusk. Brian does not answer back. Tusk gets faired up and vows to defeat Brian. He will bring Rucia happiness, as well as free himself from Brian's shadow. Area11 Battle72 Gran Cobalt gate (3) Objective: Defeat Tusk. Opponent: Tusk Reward: 200, -exp -Tusk admits that he has always been envious of Brian's gentleness from the time they were kids and wants Brian to take care of Rucia. He passes Brian the 'Executor'. Cobalt's projection appears. Cobalt is happy as 'Executor' is generating more power in Brian's hand and urges Brian to hurry to him with the sword. Brian emerges from the stairway. Everyone is glad he is alright. "Tusk Brestlate has perished, but my friend, Rucia, I can no longer turn back. Even if becoming myself an enemy of the resistance and the empire, I will not return until Cobalt is being cut down by 'Executor'! If the choice given to all people lies in this sword, watch with full attention! How the final judgment is carried out..." -------------------------------------------- Area12 Emblem of Justice (Seigi no Monsho) -------------------------------------------- Brian's guerilla unit reliably presses on to Ruksodol. Naturally the liberation and Cobalt is aware of the movement but ignores it. But Luke Hegkmeyar and Bart Balthukus are waiting to intercept the resistance guerilla with determined will and resolution. "We, the former deserters being pursued by the empire...have again returned to Rukusodol to face a formal army. Fate seems to be an over beautiful decorative word, for fighters, a clear path of advancement has broaden now." -A cannon blast tears down the gate. Ain curses at the careless aiming while Brian urges to press on. Koumei catches up and surprises them. He could be there earlier if getting permission for using the cannon, from blockheads in congress, went smoothly. He has lost his sense of justice when he just thought of waiting for peace after the fighting is finish. He is worried about Brian's party and concludes that he is a fighter afterall. Exit north. This will be the last town, feel free to use up the money. Item sold: Survival-pack, Mind-repair, Shadow-flare, Raunderupirumu, Rowdy-spear, Sledge-bomber, Vifarangusu. -Travel north. Bart has been waiting. Koumei advises Bart to stop following Cobalt as whole of Skuderia will soon be under liberation's control. Bart does not give a thing to the liberation army, Cobalt got his position because he is a Gurunareim and the senate has given up on Skuderia. Bart will never join hands with the liberation and fights. Area12 Battle73 Cobalt Square Objective: Defeat Bart. Opponent: Bart Ma-ku trooper x3 O-beruraize x3 Buraueruto x3 Zeruto fix x2 Reward: 1044, 70exp -Richard approaches his father. Even in defeat Bart never changes his mind, but he wants Richard to be faithful to own heart. Bart asks whether Brian will like to return and serve Balfomauria, Skuderia is too tiny for a man of Brian's caliber to show his full potential. Brian turns down the offer and Bart bids them farewell. -Go east. Area12 Battle optional Rukusodol Objective: Defeat all enemy units. Opponent: Ma-ku trooper x2 Arutea mage x2 Morugu Creed x3 Beirunattsu x4 Zeruto fix Reward: 1800, -exp -Prepare for final series of battle. move north to Cobalt cathedral. Area12 Battle74 Cobalt Cathedral (1) Objective: Defeat all enemy units. Opponent: Colossus Gurosu Ramedo x4 Gurosu Zain x3 Gurosu Vaua- x3 Reward: 2420, 75exp -Enter the cathedral. Koumei insists on following Brian to the final battle. Luke is guarding the room. His pride as a warrior disallows him to surrender. Area12 Battle75 Cobalt Cathedral (2) Objective: Defeat Luke. Opponent: Luke Ma-ku Trooper x3 Feigutsua-to x3 Gurosu Ramedo x4 Zerudo Fix Reward: 1044, 90exp -Luke cannot understand why his daughter Roiss, who detests war, never returns to him but insists on following Brian. If it is out of love, Luke insists Roiss to put all of her life into it like a Hegkmayer. Enough of warrior's way, pride...time is changing, advises Ain. Looking at them, Luke realizes they are the one changing time and wants Brian to take care of Roiss and died. -Advisable for all active party members to be level 50 and above (if possible level 55). Get experience by defeating the constant regenerating enemy unit in city center. -Go in deeper. Cobalt has been waiting and is overjoyed has brought 'Executor' along. Cobalt demands for handing over of the sword. But Brian, unable to forgive man who wants to act like god, wants Cobalt's head in return. Faired up with talking to people who cannot understand his ambition, Cobalt challenges Brian to a final battle in the altar room. Area12 Battle76 Cobalt Cathedral (3) Objective: Defeat Cobalt. Opponent: Cobalt Ma-ku Trooper x3 Farudo Mage x3 Gurosu Ramedo x3 Zerudo Fix x2 Reward: -, -exp -Cobalt lies motionless. An energy-surge knocks 'Executor' off Brian's hand. Cobalt grabs the sword and laughs at Brian party's foolishness in thinking that they can defeat him. Cobalt calls out to heaven in the name of the inheritor to pass the final judgment. Konory enters and tells Brian to seize the chance to retrieve the sword and give Cobalt a final blow. The sword's power goes berserk again and Konory teleports Brian party out. Ain deduces the real inheritor of time is Konory. Konory is not sure herself and asks Koumei. Koumei always thought that the heritor is one-eyed Cobalt. The real 'one-eye' is actually Konory's third eye on her fore-head...Koumei does not bother to find out, for them the revolution is finally over. (Konory has actually shown her third eye when she first uses the teleport spell when 'Executor' goes bersek in Tusk's hands. The text did not mention.) The revolution ended in Rukusodol. After the agreement on peace, the former liberation army guerilla's members and the 2nd battalion of the resistance launched a sudden attack on the governor's palace and defeated the guards. During the blitz, Cobalt Axiaysus has mysteriously disappeared, empire forces are driven out of all Skuderia. More to this is the grant of autonomy from Balfomauria empire to Arcadia council. Among these happenings, Brian is heading towards a distant, different goal...and the Arcadian liberation army guerilla unit is dismissed. ----------- The Endings ----------- (Reputation: Fedayeen) 4 months after Rukusodol's revolution, west of continent of Skuderia, boundary of Orento area... -Koumei will forever remember Brian. Brian does not mind if he is remembered or not. Ain wants Tom to behave and not to cause trouble to her sister. Tom wants Ain not to burden Brian. Eris asks why Brian still heads for regions of war when there is peace here. Brian is quiet. Eris understands, apologizes and wishes them good health. Roiss seems to have something to say but held her silence. Brian, Ain and Dora begin to set off. Koumei prepares for busy work of strengthening realization and sending reinforcement to mainland and... Roiss suddenly steps up then apologizes to Koumei, and she sets off after Brian. -The revolution is successful. Now it is the empire's continuous crimes the liberation is against. Roiss Hegkmayer is removed from the liberation army and her where about is unknown. A rumor that someone resembling her is seen in a mercenary unit on main continent headed by a man with a prosthetic arm... "What I long for, is not ideals, is not rest, it is only..." (Reputation: Valkyrie to Blade eagle) The 3rd guerilla unit waits for their next order at current position... -Roiss has never thought of drinking with Brian like this. Brian does not know Roiss is such a good drinker and worries about going bust treating her. Eris chases Tom to bed. Dora is glad that they survived, despite her clumsiness adds Ain. Dora retorts that Ain is whining like a dog when he was poisoned by Tusk. Koumei enters and apologizes for interrupting the jolly mood with an announcement. Dora wants Koumei not to bother if it is another decoration, as they got mountains of them. Koumei has a new mission for them. Brian assures that for their future's sake, they will certainly carry any mission out. -The revolution is successful. Now it is the empire's continuous crimes the liberation is against. The 3rd guerilla has left remarkable battle records all over the land, especially the names, Brian Stelbart and Ain Macdougal, are spoken of on many battlefields. "Battlefield, the familiar place where my home and friends are." (Reputation: Viper to Balrog) 2 months after Rukusodol revolution, north of Skuderia, town of Nikia in Taberu area... -Brian has decided to go. He has lots of thinking to do... Dan wants to follow to Brian insisted on going alone. Bryan apologizes, as he will not stay to make the place his ideal home. Ain asks whether it is alright for Roiss. Brian feels it is the best as he is a sword that cannot stay in a place for long, if alive, they will meet probably again...Ain skips the boring seeing off and wishes Brian good health. After Brian left, Konory wonders whether he will feel lonely... Ain concludes that Brian may had been born a fighter, and can never sense his own presence other than in the middle of battle... -After Rukusodol revolution, there is still internal strife in certain areas, caused by disagreement in autonomy rule... After the revolution, Ain participates in activities of Arcadian liberation army. Beside that, after being removed from the liberation army, the where about of Brian is unknown. "What am I seeking, is it the next day that I go out to meet? The answer is the man who is with the horizon." (Reputation: Hellhound or Genocide) -2 officials are waiting for the arrival of next supreme commander from mainland. Whoever the commander is, as long as orders from mainland are followed the officials think they will be safe. Suddenly a fallen soldier gets thrown into the room. Brian and Ain enter together. A guard tries to stop them but is cut down promptly. The officials are stunned by the rude act and demand the intruders to report names and unit. Brian confirms who the governor is and kills him on the spot. -The assassination of the representative of mainland supreme command has cause the system to again fall in a state of incompleteness. In the same year, Arcadia liberation army starts a war on empire in the mainland...In the battles, soldiers from guerilla unit after Rukusodol revolution, Brian Stelbart and Ain Macdougal, have never ever been seen by any living soul... "Stacking corpses, letting blood flow, what I am looking for, is corpse of my own." =========== 2. POINTERS =========== -Destroy units that have not yet move. -Frequently ignored command: escape. Press start on an active friendly unit. You cannot escape from some battles. -Names of the 9 rankings for unit's reputation(from law to chaos): Fedayeen(Goddess with wings), Valkyria(Maiden with spear), Griffis(Griffon), Blade-eagle(eagle holding a sword), Viper(Snake), Phantom(Ghost with scythe), Balrog(devil), Hell-hound(2 headed hound), Genocide(Skull swallowing sword). -There are 8 law characters and 6 chaos characters. Law characters will only join and stay if unit reputation is law. The same applies to chaos side. If unit reputation changes, example from Griffis to Blade-eagle, law character, in this case Richard, will give a warning; if farther changes to Viper, Richard will leave the party permanently. Different characters have different tolerance level. Other characters are considered neutral and will join and stay regardless of reputation. The 8 law characters are: Eris Woodland(and Tom), Elle Northwind, Shane Wreidback, Jenny Rockwell, Arby Hcszeool, Richard Balthukus, Shim Ems and Konory Rafrecia. The 6 chaos characters are: Ryoukan, Teita Blade, Sonia Bluemoon, Lance Slayders, Shelly Laqusomacus, Gust Darknoa. -For those aiming for Fedayeen rank: In many battles, killing enemy is always better than having partners captured. Partner will lose precious experience bonus, and Brian has to defeat 2 guards and lose 3 days for the rescue. After reaching the rank of Fedayeen, since you only have to maintain the rank, you can actually have more kills in the battle. -For Fedayeen, the cash supply is very tight, experience can still be gained by injuring enemy then escaping from battle. Focus on Brian and Ain weapon as they are normally the boss killers and their capture result in instant game-over. Do not upgrade too often. -Weapon list: (name, Attack, Property) Swords- Short-sword 8 Middle-sword 12 Fang-saber 14 Broadsword 16 Long-sword 18 Riabarianto 16 25% critical Ninja-blade 17 40% critical Zwei-hunter 20 Samurai-sword 22 30% critical Claymore 24 Bastard-sword 25 Calamity-blade 26 20% turn-undead Thor-blade 26 Suzaku 28 20% critical Shade-flare 30 30% near death Doom-blade 32 15% near death Executor 36 20% near death Axe- Axe 10 Steel-axe 12 Battle-axe 14 Heat-axe 18 War-hammer 22 30% critical Sledge-bomber 24 10% near death Crossbows- Light-crossbow 15 Heavy-crossbow 20 Arbalest 27 30% critical Guns- Catapult-barrel 25 Linear-barrel 28 40% critical Spears- Spear 8 Javelin 12 Trident 19 Rowdy-spear 24 Raunderupirumu 27 20% near death Knives- Holy-knife 10 20% critical Lances- Lance 10 Chrome-lance 17 Dragoon 22 Vifuarankusu 31 30% critical Staves- Soul-staff 12 Weapon units- Attack-unit 18 Assault zakku 29 20% near death Knuckles- Iron-knuckle 13 Tiger-claw 17 Shadow-knuckle 22 Whips- Leather-whip 13 Rip-howling 17 40% critical Evil-laser 27 40% near death -Items list: (Name, Property) Leather-wrist def+4 when equipped Gauntlet def+8 when equipped Chrome-fist def+10 when equipped Plate-resist def+14 when equipped Ration single heals 12hp Food-pack single heals 28hp Survival-pack single heals all hp Antidote recover single heals all status abnormities Mind-repair single heals 12mp -Gurenareim calender: Month of Holy heaven earth (Seitenchi-no-gatsu) = January Virgin (Otome) = Febuary Scarlet sun (Hi-no-you) = March Jumping colt (Hane-koma) = April Azure tree (Aoki-itsuki) = May Victory (Gaisen) = June Black dragon (Kuroki-ryuu) = July Thunder (Raimei) = August White blessing (Shiroki-shuku) = September Eye birth (Gan-koudan) = October Grievious light (Urei-no-hikari) = November Light frost (Awaki-shimo) = December -Differences between SNES 'FEDA' and Sega Saturn "FEDA remake'. In Saturn's remake, 2 new characters are added: Berseruk, a black axe-wielding robot, who is chaos; and Bolbo the white dragon, which talked to Konory in Bolboza mountains. All characters have special attacks. There is an animation for the opening and some scenes have voice acting. Graphic and sound have improved a lot. There is no change to the story, with exception of more endings added. ================================ 3. COMMENTS AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS ================================ Comments: For those who played Genesis's Shining and the Darkness, Shining Force, Landstalker, you should be familiar with Yoshitaka Tamaki-the character designer, Kan Naito-chief programmer (supervisor in FEDA). FEDA is commonly thought as SNES's Shining Force, but FEDA has more mission objectives and more serious storyline. Battle turns are based on move rotation resembling a chess game while Shining Force battle turn is based on character's alertness. FEDA's experience bouns for all members of party is something I like a lot. I detest time wasting trainings. The game focuses on telling the story and strategy part, so there will be no extra-games or side-quests or unnecessary extra-stories, straightforward and no frill game.
