LANGRISSER I

PROLOGUE

In ancient times, the secret sword of legend, Langrisser, was praised for the
unlimited power that it gave to its wielder.  As a result of the common people's
avarice for that sword, it was mutually agreed to protect the sword from the
viewing of the surrounding people, in order to prevent the spilling of much
blood.  Presently, however, the royal lineage of the Baldea kingdom, descended
from ancient heroes who protected Langrisser throughout the ages, has left it to
its trustee.  But now, the peace is crumbling.  His majesty, Dalshis Emperor
Digos, has gathered a massive army to lay siege to Baldea Castle and obtain
Langrisser.  He wants to obtain the sword to realize his grand ambitions of
world conquest.

CHARACTERS


Ledin (Fighter / Protagonist)     

Prince of the Baldea Kingdom.  With the sword Langrisser, he escaped as the
Dalshis Empire was sighted surrounding the royal castle.  He strives to regain
his native country, in a war to overthrow the Dalshis Empire.


Chris (Cleric)     

Aiming to be a priest, Chris was on a pilgrimage.  On the way through the
invaded country, she penetrated the raid, and aided Ledin's exit.  Thereafter,

determination.


Volkoff (Swordmaster)

Ledin and him both escape from the castle.  Despite his advanced age, he has
remarkable skill as a tactician.

personal hope for those inside the empire.



LANGRISSER II

PROLOGUE

Hundreds of years after the events of the first ...
The Baldea Kingdom has already ended, and now Langrisser has faded to a sword of
legend once again.  However, the continent has once more seen the beginning of
an invasion by a foreign state.  This time, the enemy is the Ligurd empire.
Dark Prince Boser is behind it, and it's said that Alhazard (the evil sword that
opposes Langrisser) is involved.  The Ligurd empire that obtained Alhazard seeks
to release its sealed true power, and at the same time, many people must
fantasize that when the empire is defeated, the Unity of the Continent ambition
that it holds will go with it.  


CHARACTERS

Erwin (Protagonist)

Bereft of his parents since childhood, he continues his travels as an
adventurous person.  Besides his strong sense of righteousness, there's also a
charm about him that attracts those around him.


Liana (Cleric)

A childhood friend of Hein's.  She was a shrine maiden at the Shrine of Light in
the nearby territory of Salrath.  When the place was seized by the Ligrud 
empire, its distress call was answered by Erwin, and now she travels with Erwin.


Hein (Oracle)

A mage that resided in a village near the Salrath territory.  From the time that
he met Erwin, the congeniality in their relationship was as good as the
relations of close friends.  The capability of his magic is an unknown.


Cherie (HawkKnight)

A daughter of noble birth from Kalzas castle, which reigns over the western part
of the continent.  Due to her wild personality, she sneaked away from the
castle, and polished her skill with the sword.  In her opposition to the Ligurd
empire, she recruits responsible groups from various parts of the country to
continue the fight.


Keith (HawkKnight)

As captain of the Kalzas castle flight squad that was managed by Sherry, he was
under Sherry's direct command.  His dispassionate composure during battle causes
him to be an able soldier.


Imelda (General)

This army mistress commands the Ice Dragon soldier division.  Due to her
coldheartedness and lofty pride, she uses any means necessary to triumph.  She
is feared not only by her enemies, but also by her subordinates.


Leon (RoyalGuard)

boasts numerous glories and no defeats.  He has the deep confidence of his
subordinates.  He has high-spirited fidelity to his monarch.  


Chaos

Dark god that administers turmoil.  He is also the patron of all of the vice
in existence.


Boser (DarkMaster)

He prepares to summon Chaos by acting as a scourge himself.  This time, he
utilizes Emperor Bernhardt, who schemes to obtain Alhazard and Langrisser.


? (DarkPrincess)

A stratagem designed to manipulate Boser, in the form of a DarkPrincess.
Her birth and personal history are shrouded in mystery.  She has obtained the
power of Darkness, and can use powerful magic.


BEGINNING THE GAME

While the disc is stopped, turn on the power, and the demo begins.  When you
push the Start button, the title screen appears.  When you push it again, the
screen appears that chooses "I" or "II".  To play the game, move the direction
button right or left to choose, and push the C button as your decision.  Next,
the opening movie begins to play, and then the game begins.


GAME OVER

If a defeat condition is ever satisfied, Game Over appears.  Push a button to
return to the opening screen.


ABOUT SAVING

The game can save either on internal RAM or cartridge RAM (separately sold power
memory).  In order to save I and II, 165 empty space is needed.  There are two
types of saves: one performed at Scenario Clear, and one performed in the course
of a scenario.
	
- Saving when scenario clears

When Scenario Clear appears, a maximum of 3 slots can be saved.


- Saving in the course of a scenario

1 slot of data can be saved in play.  Before you fight a powerful enemy, you
should utilize the save feature.  The save can be created in the Setup Menu.
Moreover, after the end of a Perform Attack command, a save can be performed.


ABOUT LOADING

Both types of save data are similar, in the way that load data can be done on
both types.  It can be done when the game begins or in the Setup Menu while in
play.

DIRECTION OF GAMEPLAY

In the game, a Scenario Clear occurs when a victory condition is satisfied.

1) Show Continent diagram

Shows the route of advance for the player's army and operating units, as well as
the story, victory conditions, and defeat conditions of the scenario.

2) Prepare to perform a normal attack

First, hire mercenaries, then equip items, and then prepare to perform a normal
attack.  (You'll get items in the course of the game).  Pay attention to your
supply of money.  Select the Action command, then select the Order  command for
the commander (char).

- Soldier assignment

Select the commander to designate for soldier assignment, and if the commander
can hire mercenaries, the screen shows it being executed.  If you have the money
together to hire mercenaries, please select the number of soldiers to hire,
increasing the number with the C button, and decreasing with the B button.
A single commander may only be assigned one type of mercenary, but 3-6 units.
You can select the number of mercenaries, but not the type of mercenary, as the
class of each commander differs.  Once the number is decided, select Decision.

- In many situations, selecting a type of mercenary causes a cursor to display.
  With the right and left of the direction button, you can see how mercenaries
  of the outer screen are structured.

- Since the mercenaries have been employed and used in the scenario, in the next
  scenario, they must also be employed.

- Equipping items

Select Equip Item, then select the commander to equip the item.  Next, choose
between Equip, Buy, and Sell.  Push the B button to return to the previous
screen.  Only Part I applies to the 14th-18th pages, as other chars won't
display on the top of the screen.  Push the L/R buttons to display other chars.

Equip ... how a held item is equipped

There are two types of items:  Military Tool and Other.  One of each can be
equipped at a time.  Select the item that you would like to equip, in order to
execute your decision.  When you select one that can't be equipped, Can't Equip
is shown.  Items that can't be equipped are shown as dim.

Shown on the diagram:  Data of the commanders that can equip the item, the list
is formed such that commanders that can't equip the item are dimmed, Money that
you have, and Sale price of the item.

Buy ... sale of an item differs in each scenario's shop.  In addition, when the
cursor is on an item that  commanders can't equip, the data is shown as dim.

Sell ... unneeded items can be sold.  However, neither equipped items nor items
like Langrisser can be sold.  When the cursor is on a suitable item, push the
X button to learn the effect of the item.

Shown in the diagram:  Sale price of items that can be sold

For each commander that doesn't Equip, his equip screen shows that another
commander can equip.  In Buy and Sell, the screen shows for whom.
The Z button changes for which char.

- Commander arrangement

Select Commander Arrangement, then decide which commander (char) to designate
for arrangement.  A flag is on the map in certain places that can be favored for
commander arrangement.  However, each scenario is similar in that it compels the
target's arrangement such that it decides on a rally point.  In addition, the
names of  commanders that have finished arrangement are shown as dim.

- Perform attack

When all commanders have finished preparations, select Perform Attack.
Moreover, this it shows save confirmation.

- Opening maneuvers

Select Perform Attack, and it decides whether to save first or merely execute
it.  If it saves here, at the moment that you prepare to perform the attack,
you can re-start, and the game begins with arrangement and assigning of
soldiers, which is useful when you wish to redo.  It's also easy to do opening
maneuvers.  The commander of personal troops has a subordinate unit, and he
gives it an order to execute a maneuver.  The turn repeats until one side wins.

4) Layout of screen

Various information is shown on the screen.  Ordinary units that are allies face
the right, yet enemies are shown as facing left, and units under the cursor can
merge such that all members of the units are on the same side (unit).

Magic mark

When magic has been applied to a unit, that is shown.  Which magic has been
applied can be seen by the magic abbreviation symbol of the information window.

Order icon
This mark is only attached to a commander.  It shows the contents of an order to
subordinates.

Unit mark
This mark shows to which side a unit belongs.  Allies are blue, enemies are red,
and NPCs are green.

E mark
When a unit's action has ended, it shows the E mark, and it can no longer move.

Unit symbol
Shows type of unit.  When its action has ended, the unit becomes black and
white.

HP (life energy)

It's blue for allies, yellow for enemies.  It decreases.  10 is the most damage
that you can take, and the unit disappears when it reaches 0.


- Layout of information window


- When cursor is not on any unit

Topography correction value of the topography at the position of the cursor,
Scenario number, Turn number

- When cursor is on a commander unit

Type of magic that has been applied to the unit, Unit symbol, class, Topography
correction value of the topography at the position of the cursor, Topography
that unit prefers, Particular correction value of the unit that adjusts the
overall topography correction value  (Upper level is the topography correction
value, lower level is the particular correction value), Name, Experience meter,
Equipped items.

- When cursor is on a mercenary unit

As above, minus Experience meter and Equipped items.  The name of the unit's
commander is displayed, not a name of the unit itself.


Type of Magic symbol

Green characters indicate magic that is beneficial to a unit and its comrades.

A = Attack.   P = Protection.  R = Resist.  Q = Quick.

Yellow characters indicate magic that is harmful to the enemy.

S = Sleep.  Z = Zone.  C = Charm.  M = Mute.  D = Decline.


Explanation of terminology

Topography correction value ... the topography confers a beneficial value to
those who are on defense in the confrontation.

Particular correction value ... an attribute of the unit (move shape) in its
relation to the topography can confer a beneficial value to those who are on
defense in a confrontation.  (Example: Mermen are strong on water).

Command correction value ... Inside the command range of the commander,
subordinates receive a plus value.  There's an attack strength correction value
and a defense strength correction value.  
The commander himself doesn't receive a plus.


About command range

As for command range, a commander confers his command correction value to his
own subordinates within the command range.  For subordinates inside the command
range, the command correction value acts as a plus that is beneficial.  However,
the same is true for enemy commanders.  When the cursor on the map meets a unit,
it shows the command range of the commander.

Show commander data

When the cursor meets a commander and the C button is pushed, the commander data
is shown.

Explanation of battle time

When an enemy's HP is low, its attack frequency decreases, and this decrease
occurs as an opponent inflicts damage.  In addition, when the commander of an
enemy falls, the squad is totally destroyed.  In this case, when the subordinate
disappears, its experience value is not gained by anyone.

Conversation

Many events are prepared, like reinforcements appearing in the game or finding
an item.  The C button progresses to the next message.  In addition, voices can
be skipped with the B button.


5)  Level up and class change

When an enemy falls, the commander gains its experience value as a plus.
If much is earned, the character grows stronger, as a method of improvement
(even if a commander's subordinate defeats an enemy, the commander still gains
the experience value).  Upon level up, as abilities increase, new types of magic
may be learned.  Furthermore, the range and power of magic will go higher,
during battle it becomes more difficult to receive damage, and it becomes easier
to inflict damage.  If the level reaches 10, you can perform a Class Change.
It's the same way about Class Change, in that your character grows stronger as
an improvement.  Moreover, when doing a class change, there are increases in
magic learned, attack value, defense value, more MP value, type and number of
mercenaries (refer to following description), and they can carry over.


About number of mercenaries

The number that can be employed rises and falls with class change.  This
condition involves a calculation of between 2 and 7 like this:
"2 or less is made 3", "7 or more is made 6".  This is how the correction is
done.

EXPLANATION OF UNIT ABILITIES AND TERMINOLOGY

Every unit is the holder of various abilities.  Moreover, the abilities are
represented by the following terms.

- Abilities of all units

class	        Type of unit.  As various classes grow, their abilities change
                differently.
A  AT           The size of this numerical value to a large extent influences
                how much damage is inflicted on an enemy.
D  DF 		The size of this numerical value to a small extent influences
                how much damage is received from an enemy.
HP		In any unit, the maximum is 10.  When an attack is received, it
                decreases, and if it reaches 0, the unit disappears.  When a
                unit's commander reaches 0, the unit is totally destroyed.
                This numerical value to a large extent becomes beneficial in the
                face of an enemy attack.  Furthermore, only a commander can do
                Heal, which restores 3 HP points.  
		Moreover, when a commander's subordinate is placed adjacent to
                him at the beginning of a phase, the subordinate has 3 HP
                restored.
MV		1 point indicates the distance that can be moved at a time
                (due to mass).  However, it can change due to topography.
Attribute	The aspect of how a unit moves.  For example, Flying Soldier
                flies through the air, and it has the effect for almost all
                topographies that it becomes as if a unit of that topography's
                type, without actually changing.


- Abilities held only by a commander

L  LV		When experience value accumulates, it can reach a milestone.
                Higher levels have a beneficial function in battle and magic
                effects.  Again, although class change can be done at Level 10,
                that returns you to Level 1 in your new class.
Experience value meter
		When the unit itself (commander) or a subordinate defeats an
                enemy unit, the commander receives the experience value.
                If the meter becomes full, Level up occurs, abilities rise, and
                new magic is learned.
Command range
		The unit's own subordinates receive beneficial abilities in
                battle when they are within this domain.
A+ (attack strength correction value)
		When inside the command range, a subordinate receives the
                addition of this as a command correction value.
D+ (defense strength correction value)
		When inside the command range, a subordinate receives the
                addition of this as a command correction value.
MP		Decreases as magic is used.  Heal restores 2 points of MP.
Usable magic	Each class has a different set of usable magic.  Level up
                increases the set of usable magic, its range of effect, and its
                power.
Mercenary	Each class has a different mercenary.  When class change occurs,
                the type of mercenary also improves.


EXPLANATION OF MENU SCREEN COMMANDS

Menu commands comprise a large portion of two types of menus: the Main Menu and
the Setup Menu.

Main Menu

This menu of commands gives orders to a unit.  To issue orders, when the cursor
meets a unit, push the C button and the Main Menu appears.  For an order, select
the command, and push down the C button.  

(Annotation)  E mark means a unit has already been given an order.  However,
only the Order command of a commander unit can be used any number of times.


Move  (all units can use this command)

Range of movement is shown on the map.  NPCs and enemies can move over their own
army units.  The Box-type cursor is movable with the direction buttons.  Decide
upon a move space with the C button as a provisional decision (this step can be
undone with the B button).  Once you have already pushed the C button,
the E mark is shown to indicate that the action has completed.
The moment that you have made a provisional decision on a move space,
the distance to attack enemies is calculated, and an attack on an enemy can be
executed.


Attack  (all units can use this command)

Select this command, once you have made a provisional decision on where to move
with the Move command and it's a situation where you're within range to attack
an enemy, and the cursor changes to a sword or a bow type.  This shows that
you're inside the range where you can attack one enemy unit via the attack
mechanism.  However, when you activate the attack mechanism, the enemy also
counterattacks.  When you don't want to carry out an attack, and the cursor
meets your own unit, please push the C button (when you make a provisional
decision to move, and the attack occurs, the cursor returns to Box-type).
When you have already pushed down the C button, and after the attack action has
completed, the E mark is shown.

(Annotation)  Regarding the attack range of a unit, for most units it's when the
unit is adjacent to an enemy unit (up, down, left, right), but for elves and
ballistas (units with ranged attacks), they can attack units that are far away.


Magic  (only commanders use this command)

First, the magic menu shows the magic that can be selected to be used.
When you decide on a magic with the C button, the casting range (distance that
the magic can reach) is shown on the map.  At that time, the cursor changes to
Staff-type, as it acknowledges the magic that you want to apply, and push the
C button to show the effect range (range of the occurrence effect of the magic).
When you push the C button for confirmation, the magic is executed.
Before execution, you can press the B button to return.

Each magic that you decide on consumes MP, and if the remaining MP is less than
the amount required for another case, that casting may be unavailable.

(Annotation)  After executing the Move and Attack commands, you can no longer
use the Magic command for that turn.


Heal  (only commanders use this command)

When a commander uses this command, it restores 3 points of HP and 2 points of
MP.

(Annotation)  After executing the Move and Attack commands, you can no longer
use the Heal command for that turn.


Order  (only commanders use this command)

The method by which you direct your subordinates, which are under the automatic
operation of the computer.  The Order command installs 4 possible types, such
that when the phase is completed and the E mark appears on the unit, Manual
orders need not be executed by the unit, as the contents of the orders occur
automatically.

Battle
The action executed is a balance of offensive and defensive plans.

Charge
To pursue battle, the actions selected focus on attack.

Defense
Use the attack mechanism to guard itself.

Manual
Automatic operation of the unit doesn't occur.


(Annotation)  This command determines to what extent actions are managed.
When the game beginss, Battle is installed as the default Order.


Setup Menu

At the end of a phase, the menu of commands can perform setup.  During gameplay,
push the Start button and the Setup Menu appears (or when the cursor isn't on a
unit through the C button).  Push down the C button to select the orders for
each command.

Save
Store 1 file of data during the course of a scenario.

Load
Load data that has been saved.

Victory Conditions
While playing a scenario, show the victory and defeat conditions.

Game Setup
Toggle different variables about the environment in which the game is played.
Select up and down on the direction buttons to go through commands, and decide
on a setup with the C button.
After a decision, you can use the B button to return to a previous state.

game setup	Setup the length of the wait interval of the enemy phase and
                cursor speed.
info setup	Setup the speed of showing messages.
battle scene	Omit individual battle scenes.
PCM		Toggle PCM sound effects.
high speed battle	Switch ON/OFF to change the speed of battles.


End Phase

Ends the phase of your own army, and begins the phase of the enemy.  (For an
NPC situation, the NPC unit's actions are completed during the enemy's phase).
During the phase of the enemy, push the B button to continue onward, changing
the game into high speed.  When the waiting interval is shortened, it's
difficult to determine the enemy's actions.  It should only be used under the
proper circumstances.

(Annotation)  You must use this command as an action, otherwise the game does
not progress.


ATTACK CORRELATION INFO

The attack attribute of one unit type versus another can be advantageous or
disadvantageous.
By analyzing the relationship, you can devise new attack strategies, leading to
improved performance.

A:  Advantage   mA: minor Advantage   D:  Disadvantage    mD: minor Disadvantage

The chart is symmetric.  When a type has an advantage as an attacker,
it has a disadvantage as a defender.  And vice versa.

Details about magic

Sleep, Mute, Zone, Charm

These magics don't always succeed.  The level of the character who casts the
magic is compared to the level of the target, and the higher the ratio, the
higher the success rate.  In addition, as the level of the target becomes
higher, not only is the effect more difficult to begin, but there's also a
small connection with how quickly it unravels.

Mute, Zone, Charm

These magics aren't used by subordinates of the enemy.

Heal1, Heal2, ForceHeal1, ForceHeal2

When using this magic, the experience value gained by restoration is
proportional to the number of units affected.  However, when used on a unit
that has 10 HP, that doesn't count.


POINTERS FOR MASTERING THE GAME

- Use the commander well

Use the commander's magic to restore the HP of his subordinates.  Being in
range of the commander is beneficial to subordinates' battle performance.  In
addition, the Order command can set subordinates to automatic operation,
saving you work and letting you focus on strategy.

- For when the commander is defeated

When it's one of the defeat conditions that a commander is defeated, a
Game Over occurs, but if it's not a condition, then the commander will be
resurrected in the next scenario.  However, loss of commanders affects the
clear bonus of a scenario, not to mention that all of their mercenary
subordinates will be destroyed.  Also, if a commander is defeated a certain
number of times, that will change the game's ending.

- Mercenary survivors can also grow

If you seldom lose mercenaries, the computer records this on Scenario Clear,
and if you attain a certain number of survivors, the attack strength correction
value of allied commanders increases by 1 point.  There is no other method to
increase attack strength correction value.

- When experience value accumulates

If experience value accumulates, level and class increase.  If an enemy
commander is defeated, the squad is totally destroyed, and the experience value
of his subordinates doesn't accumulate.  When you have a surplus of strength,
you should defeat the enemy subordinates one by one, so that more experience
value accumulates.  In addition, when an allied commander reaches the Scenario
Complete time, bonus experience value accumulates.

- Use magic well

If magic is used well, it can let even a weak commander stand against the enemy,
and growth will be overdue.  You shouldn't only use attack magic, but also make
effective use of support magic like Attack and Protection.

- Quickly restore HP and MP

A commander's Heal command restores 3 points of HP and 2 points of MP.
Subordinate units that are adjacent to the commander (up, down, left, right)
can recover 3 points of HP every turn, so use this concept for effective
arrangement of your units.
