Authors Note #1

Well, this is a first time project set for me and Matt together. He and I have
greatly enjoyed assembling this walkthrough, and if you have any questions,
either one of us will be happy to try and help. Final Fantasy was the first
game I ever played on my Super Nintendo, and it has remained a favorite to this
day.  I hope that anyone else who plays this game will also enjoy the rich
story, the campy dialogue, and the cool characters that really are quite
different from one another.

This goes out to my love Jennifer Dixon.  She is a continual supporter of me,
and I appreciate all she does for me.  I only hope that she can enjoy my
company until the days we die.

Also, for Cougar, Howler, and Koonce.  I miss you, and I hope you are living it
up in the afterlife as you did in this world.  You will always be in my
memories, and you will never be forgotten.

                        ~ Brian

Just wanted to give props out to Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Pink
Floyd, and all the other bands who entertained me while compiling this guide.
Also a shout out to Brian, whom I really enjoyed working with on this project.
I think we’ve got the best Final Fantasy 2 guide out there right here, we hope
you find it helpful.

• BATTLE CONTROLS

D-PAD: Use the D-Pad maneuver the hand and navigate your way through the menu
sub-systems. The downside of this is you’re going to bust up your thumbs, and
the upside is, you’re going to bust up your thumbs.

L BUTTON: Use the L (left) button which is located on the top left shoulder of
your SNES controller in conjunction with the R (right) button which is located
on the upper right shoulder of your SNES controller to run.

of your SNES controller in conjunction with the L (left) button which is
located on the upper left shoulder of your SNES controller to run.

X BUTTON: N/A

Y BUTTON: N/A

A BUTTON: Use the A button to confirm selections you have highlighted or input
in the menu systems. Commonly confused with the start button in its function,
the A button is located no where near start, so I have no idea why.

B BUTTON: The fabulous B button, which is used to cancel your highlighted
selection and move back throughout the menu sub-systems.

START: Use the start button to pause the game, good for bathroom breaks, snacks
and other various pit stops.

SELECT: N/A

desires. Note: You can only do this three times... wow just kidding.

B Button – The B button is one again the reject of your SNES controller, doomed
to forever to the cancel selection and back button for all eternity.

A Button – The A button, which is like the prodigal son of your SNES
controller, can be used to talk to people in towns and so on, as well as to
confirm highlighted selections in the menu system.

  Getting Started
************************************


The game opens with the ominous music that always seems to accompany the
mighty Red Wings of Baron.  The five Airships rip through the sky at top
speed.  On board, the mighty forces of Baron are out on their latest
mission...

Crew: Captain Cecil, we are about to arrive.

Cecil: Good.

*crew on both ends of the Airship turn toward one another*

Crew: Why are we robbing crystals from the innocent?

Crew: That's our duty.

*Cecil hangs his head*

Crew: Do we really have to do this?

*Scene changes to inside a yellow-tinged room with a shiny floor*

Crew: Give us the Crystal of Water!

Elder: What have we done?

Cecil: The Crystal of your life!

Black Wizard: Never!

Cecil: Then, take the Crystal by force!

*Crew advances to immediately kill both Black Mages*

White Wizard: No! Don't!

Crew: Dare to defy us?

*Crew kills the White Wizard*

Elder: My! All right... Take the Crystal!

Crew: You should have said it earlier!

*Crew knocks the Elder to the side of the room*

Elder: Why is the King of Baron doing this?  Why do you pursue the Crystals
       so eagerly?

Cecil: ......

*Cecil starts to leave, stops, and then hangs head at the shame he feels for
 their actions.*

*Scene changes to on board the Airship again where the Crew is once again
 talking amongst themselves*

Crew: We take pride in being members of the Red Wings!  Looting is out of
      the question!

Cecil: Stop it!

Crew: Captain!

Crew: We can't stand it anymore!

Cecil: Listen!  Possessing the Crystal is an essential factor in our
       prosperity.  Moreover, his Majesty judged that the Mysidains know too
       much about the secret of the Crystal.  We are the Red Wings.  The Air
       Force of the Kingdom of Baron!  The Royal Command is absolute.

Crew: Captain!

*Cecil hangs head in shame once again as look-out walks toward Captin Cecil*

Crew: Monsters!!

Cecil: Take up fighting positions!

*Cecil goes into battle against three Floateyes, which he FireBombs to death*

Crew: Ouch!

Cecil: You okay?

Crew: More Coming!

Cecil: Watch Out!

*Cecil goes into battle against a Raven, which he Lit-Bolts to death*

Cecil: Everyone okay?

*Crew walks in to surround Cecil*

Crew: Yes, Sir!

Crew: But there are too many monsters these days...

Crew:  Too many, agreed.

Cecil: What's happening?

Crew: We are over Baron!

Cecil: Make a landing.

*The Red Wings land in Baron*

*Ceicl enters the castle to meet Baigan*

Baigan: Oh Cecil!  Is it the Crystal of Water?

Cecil: But Mysidians were so helpless.

Baigan: What are you trying to say?  This way, Cecil.

*Baigan leads Cecil into the waiting area outside the Throne Room*

Baigan: Please wait here.

*Baigan enters the Throne Room to speak with King Baron*

Baigan: Your Majesty!  I'm afraid Cecil has developed quite a rebellious
        air.

King: Truly?  Well done, Baigan!  We must do something. Call him in!

Baigan: Yes, your Majexty.

*Baigan goes to the door*

Baigan: Cecil!  His Majesty summons you.  Please come in.

*Baigan and Cecil approach the Throne*

King: We thank you for successfully completing the mission.  Now, where is
      it?

Cecil: Here, my Liege.

*Cecil hands over the Crystal to Baigan, who hands to it to King Baron*

Baigan: Real Crystal...

King: Godd!  Cecil......  You may leave now.

Cecil:  Your Majesty!

King: W...  What?

Baigan: W...  What is it?

Cecil: We do not understand the meaning of taking Crystals away from honest
       people.

King: Disobeying me?

Cecil: No, I don't.

King: We know of your discontent, Cecil.  If you can not trust me, I can no
      longer place the Red Wings in your command.  You are dismissed from
      your post!

Cecil: Your Majesty!

*The guards rush down to prevent Cecil from reaching the King*

King: Go hunt the Summoned Monsters of the Misty Valley!  And...  Take the
      package to the Village Mist.  You may depart tomorrow morning!

*Cecil continues to try and get to the King, but he is prevented by the
 guards.  Suddenly, the door behind Cecil opens up.*

Kain: Your Majesty!  Cecil didn't...

King: If you're concerned about Cecil that much, go with him Kain!

Cecil: Your Majesty!

King: Now!  Leave with the Package!

*Cecil and Kain get the Package*

Cecil: Your Majesty!

*The guards force Cecil and Kain out into the main hall where the fighters
 of the realm congregate*


Cecil: Sorry, Kain.

Kain: Don't worry.  He'll put you back in command of the Red Wings after the
      mission.

Cecil: But...

Kain: Never mind!  Go back to your room and take a rest.

*The game advises you to walk with the control pad, and talk to people using
 the A Button*

You should now walk out the door below you to enter the next room.  Head
down until the a hallway opens up to the right, which you should enter.
When you are past the guard there, go up behind him to look at the mark on
the wall, Press the A Button to trip the switch which opens the wall, and
then grab the Treasure Chests (300 GP, Cure1, and a Tent left to right).
Now head back into the hallway by the guard, turn left, and then cross the
room to exit through the door located down the left hallway.

Once you are outside, head across to the next set of stairs to enter the
next building, and then head down from the stairs, when suddenly a voice
comes from behind...

Rosa: Cecil!  You are not hurt?  I was so anxious.

Cecil: We are not hurt.  How could we be?  The Wizards did not even raise
       their hands.

*Cecil walks away with his head down in shame once again*

Rosa: Cecil!  Can I see you later?

Cecil: Yeah.  Later.

*Rosa will leave after giving Cecil a long look*

Cecil should continue towards the door below him to go outside, and he
should turn left.  Following that, he will need to start moving upwards,
when a voice will boom from up above...

Cid: Hey!  Cecil!

*Cid will wave, and then come down to say...*

Cid: How's my Airship doing?  ...What's wrong?

Cecil: I was...

Cid: What?!  Who's gonna command the Red Wings then?  I'm not sure what the
     King is thinking.  He ordered me to make an Airship, but I don't want

     it to be used as a weapon!  Well, I gotta go home.  I have been working
     all night, and my daughter is worried about me.

*Cid will leave through the door Cecil came out of*

Take Cecil into the tower above you, and make your way up the stairs.  Talk
to your maid, and then continue to the top room of the tower, and then enter
your bed to sleep.

Cecil: What happened to His Majesty?  The Crystal of Mysidia...  Did we
       really have to snatch it from the peace loving people?  Never again!
       Even if ordered!

*Cecil will settle down to sleep, when suddenly, Rosa will enter the room*

Rosa: Cecil!  What's wrong?  You're not quite yourself lately.

Cecil: Nothing.

Rosa: Then...  Please do not look away.

Cecil: In Mysidia...  We had to rob from the innocent people!

Rosa: Oh dear...

Cecil: I am just a Dark Knight with no courage to disobey His Majesty.

Rosa: The real Cecil would never whimper like this!  You are going to Mist
      tomorrow, right?  If anything should happen to you...

*Rosa starts to cry, and Cecil moves out of bed to comfort her*

Cecil: Don't worry.  Kain is coming, too.  It's late.  Go back to your room.

Rosa: take care!

*Rosa runs out still worried about Cecil*

Cecil: Thanks Rosa.  Still, I am just a Dark Knight.

*Cecil continues to wallow in his self pity, and then the scene fades to the
 main hallways where Kain and Cecil meet one another*

Kain: Let's go, Cecil!

*The game will advise you to enter the city of Baron to learn about the
 game, but with this guide, there is no need to do so*

*Cecil and Kain start to leave the castle, and then the Prologue comes
 into view*


                        Thus, the Dark Knight

                        Cecil was expelled from

                        his command as a Captain

                        of the Red Wings.

                        And He and Dragoon Kain

                        left Baron for the Village

                        Mist in a valley

                        enclosed in a deep fog.



                        Airships had been a dream

                        of many people...

                        After the realization

                        of that dream, came

                        greed and ambition.



                        Through its fleet of

                        Airships, Baron became

                        the most powerful nation.

                        But why is Baron

                        seeking the Crystals?

                        Why do the monsters

                        keep increasing...?



                        The Crystal was shedding

                        its light silently...



************************************
  Onto Mist!
************************************


Kain and Cecil appear outside the castle, and they then are faced with the
choice of venturing off into the wilderness, or heading to town.  We will go
to town, but not to learn from the Training Room (if you are new to the
game, I suggest a quick stop in to learn some pointers).  We have come to
town to raid a few treasures from it, so listen carefully.

Walk north from the gate, going to the right of the Training Room to the
group of four pots above to look in the bottom pot (using the A Button) to
get a Cure1.  Now head right across the stream using one of the bridges,
turn to go north to see a dancer and a small child, which you will pass to
go into the pool via the steps into it.  Now you have to walk down the
stream through the waterfall and past the bridges to arrive in the pool
outside of the wall.  Walk back and forth through the water methodically
(one row/column at a time) until you find spots you can not move through
(press the A Button to get the treasures), which hold 2 Tents.

Retreat back to the steps you used to enter the water, go east, go south
across the bridge and down the path until you turn east where the bridge is
going east across the stream you just walked through.  Head north across the
grass to see an old lady, which you will stand directly above before walking
north until the tree line stops you.  Walk east one square, walk north three
squares, and then walk west until you can move no further.  Walk south one
square and then walk west one square to appear in the long grass, where you
will do the same methodical search of the grass to get two Heals and a Life.
Go out the hole in the treeline above to start on your journey.

Once outside, SAVE your game before getting ready to head out to Mist.  You
are faced with two choices when heading out for Mist, and those are: to walk
there, or to find the Chocobo Village nearby.

If you are going to head to the Chocobo Village, go west from the castle
while following the mountains to the south.  When you see the circular
forest to the west, just south of the desert, walk your party over the
centre part of the forest to enter the Chocobo Forest.  Once inside the
village, walk through the long grass to find a Carrot, and then explore the
village for the lay-out of most Chocobo Villages.  By walking to the large
open space at the top of the village, you will see it "Smells Like Chocobs"
when the A Button is pressed there, followed by an item screen.  By using
your Carrot, a Big Chocobo will appear to store any excess items for you
(not useful now, but it will be later).  This village has a White Chocobo
and three Yellow Chcobos.  White Chocobos will restore your Magic Points for
you (not useful now, but it will be later on), and Yellow Chocobos will give
you a free lift to where ever you wish to go (free of enemies as well).

Either way, you will have to head west from Baron, turn north when you see
the two bridges to the north, and then go west across the one on your left.
Once across, continue west into the opening between the two mountain groups,
and then head north through the canyon to arrive at a cave entrance.  If you
came on a Chocobo, press the A Button to get it to leave, SAVE the game, and
then enter the Misty Cave.

This cave has a slight haze over it, making the visibility reduced slightly.
Head to the right upon entering, and continue along the path in front of you
until a ladder appears (go up it).  Turn left once you have scaled the
ladder to the ledge above, and continue left across a small ladder to climb
the next small ladder.  From there, head upwards to climb a ladder, when
suddenly an ominious voice will decree:

"Go Back...!"

Cecil: Who is it!?

Continue up the ladder in front of your party to get a Cure1 from the
Treasure Chest, and then go back down the ladder and turn right.  Head
across the bridge to go up the first ladder you come across, and head right
till you find a Treasure Chest with a Heal.  Retreat back to the ladder
which you used to reach this ledge, and then head down until you have used
two ladders.  turn left once you pass the chasm on your left, and then go up
the ladder in front of you to get yourself a Tent from the Treasure Chest.
Go down the ladder as you head back towards the ladder previous, where you
will turn right to head deeper into the cave.  Grab the Cure1 from Treasure
Chest in the wall before heading up again to cross the bridge.  When you
get across, the ominious voice will once again speak:

"Leave Now...!"

Kain: Is it a monster?

Continue walking up towards the cave's exit, and suddenly the voice will
once again adress Cecil and Kain.  After debating with it for a bit:

"Do you still wish to go on?"

YES/NO (say YES to continue on)

Cecil: We must deliver this Package to the Village of Mist!

"Then I must!"

The mist is gathering!  At this point, the swirling mists will gather to
from the Boss, the D. Mist!

-------
D. Mist
-------

H.P.: 450

Gold: 200

Exp.: 700

To win this fight, you will start off by attacking with Cecil and jumping
with Kain to deal out as much damage as possible.  The Mist Dragon will
attack periodically, so if the Hit Points of either Cecil or Kain drops
below 100, you may want to use a Cure1 to heal them.  When the D. Mist
"Turns to mist", you should just Parry (press RIGHT on the Directional Pad
to show the option) until the message "Now, get ready to fight" appears (at
which point the D. Mist will reassemble).  If you did not wait for the D.
Mist to reassemble, you will get blasted for a out a 30 Hit point loss with
ColdMist (counter attack for every attack you do).  Continue using your
attacks, and the D. Mist should not have time to turn into a mist cloud
again as it will be defeated!

Once you have returned to the overhead view, Go into the Menu Screen, select
Equip, and then go into kain's equipment screen to unequip his armor and
weapon (choose the armor/weapon, and then choose a blank space on the item
screen).  Go straight up to exit the cave!

SAVE the game immediately upon exiting, and then head east to find Mist!
Once you are in the Village mist, head right until the Package you were
carrying from King Baron opens automatically!  It is full of Bombs that will
burn the village to the ground while slaughtering the inhabitants!

you will be thrown into a fight with the Girl who will be so threatened by
Cecil and Kain that she will Call upon the monster Titan, and he will cause
an Earthquake that severely damages Cecil and Kain, as well as causing the
re-arranging the mountains (the town will no longer be accessible).

When Cecil awakes, he will see the Girl lying on the ground, but she is
alright.  Cecil will then realize that Kain has gone missing!  Cecil will
then decide that it is too dangerous to linger as Baron will be looking for
survivors.  He takes the Girl with him as he sets off.


************************************
  Off to Damycan
************************************


Cecil has appeared beside the recently closed in mountain range, and there
is just one path to follow up the canyon to the north.  When the desert
becomes the dominant feature of the landscape, head northeast to see an
oasis where the small Town of Kaipo resides.  Enter Kaipo so Cecil can find
the Inn, and give the Girl the rest she needs.

Cecil will ask her name and inquire if she is ok, but the Girl will continue
to remain quiet.  Cecil can not apoligise again for his actions, but begs
for her to let him protect her.  He then goes to bed, and she looks once
before nodding off herself.

In the middle of the night, the door to the Inn crashes in, and soldiers
rush in!  Cecil will jump to the defense of Rydia!

-------
Officer
-------

H.P.: 200

Gold: 80

Exp.: 400

-------
Soldier
-------

H.P.: 25

Gold: 55

Exp.: 160

In this battle, there are two ways to go about winning.  The easier way to
win is to take down the three Soldiers as fast as you can, which will cause
the coward Officer to retreat because his bodyguards are gone.  The other
method takes longer, Cecil takes a beating, and it can be annoying, but if
you take the Officer out before finishing off the final Soldier, you will
receive more Gold and Experience.

This is the point that Caller Rydia will join the Party!  You will then go
to the front desk of the Inn, and you are ready to explore this new town.
you can purchase some supplies from the Item shop to the right of the Inn
desk, and once you are done with that, exit the Inn.  Go left to enter Armor
Shop, and purchase a Cap, and an Ironring.  Following that, sell all of
Kain's equipment since you took it form him before he disapeared, and then
head out of the Armor Shop to go right to find two pots beside the Weapons
Shop, the top one contains an Ether1.  Head up to the building above the
Weapons Shop, go inside, and then walk to the back of the house to see Rosa
lying in bed!

Talk to the man on the left side of the room to discover that the SandRuby
is required to break the fever of Rosa.  With this knowledge in hand, head
outside Kaipo, SAVE the game, and then raise Rydia's level by a few spots
on the monsters in the desert.  The best method to doing this is to Parry
with Rydia, and let Cecil fight all the enemies.  After Rydia has been given
some training (usually till she learns the Black Magic spell Lit-1), go to
the Inn to fill up your HP and MP, and then go outside to SAVE once more.

Now you will need to go north from the oasis to reach the mountains, and
then head to the east along the base of the mountains to reach a cave mouth.
SAVE your game before entering, and remember that most enemies inside this
cave are weak against Lit spells.  When you are inside, take the bridge to
your right.  Once you are across, go up the small ladder above you, collect
the two Treasure Chests (left one has Caure1 and the right one has Heal),
and then go back across the bridge to the entrance.  Head left to find a
long bridge for you to cross, and when you make it across, go down to get a
Tent from a Treasure Chest.  Head up across the bridge to see a white-haired
man blocking the path!  Talk to him to learn of each others needs, and an
understanding will be reached!

With that, Sage Tellah joins your party.  before heading out further into
the cave, go tot he menu screen, choose Form, and make sure Rydia and Tellah
are in the back row with Cecil in the front row (Cecil will appear to be
further left than the other two).  Once that is done, go to Equip to give
Tellah the equipment that was purchased in Kaipo, and then we are ready to
continue on the journey to Damycan!

Go up to the bridge on your right, cross it, and grab the 120 Gold Pieces
before going across the two bridges on your right.  Climb down the ladder to
the water below, and then go up the mini-waterfalls towards the Treasure
Chest to get yourself an Ironring.  Head down to the main area of water, but
continue down and to the left instead of going back to the ladder.  When you

see a waterfall above a bridge, walk into the centre of the waterfall to
enter a secret room!  Grab the Elixer, the Cure2, and the 1000 Gold Pieces
before exiting.

Head back to the ladder (up and to the right), climb it, and then head left
across two bridges, and then Use the small ladder to get to the bridge
above.  Go across the bridge, go down the ladder to your left, and then go
up to the stairs above to go to the next area.

Go up the path above you to cross a bridge, and then use the ladder on your
left to go into the water.  Go down until you see a ladder on the left,
which you should then climb up to find a Cure1 in a Treasure Chest.  Go back
into the water, continue downwards, and use the ladder there to climb out of
the water.  Go left past the birdge to a Treasure Chest that contains an
Ether1, and then return to the birdge you passed to go across the water to
the next section of land.  Head left to find a bridge which you will cross,
and then go up to the door.  Enter the door to find your first SAVE CIRCLE.

When inside the barriers, no enemy may attack you, and the "S" will allow
your party to use a Tent/Cabin to heal themselves as well as allow you to
SAVE your game.  Tellah will volunteer a Tent to heal your party with, and
then Cecil and Tellah will have a conversation.  Tellah says that Rydia has
potential as a spell caster, and that his only daughter Anna started the
same way.  She became rebllious and ran away when Tellah did approve of her
marriage.  Tellah learns that Cecil needs a SandRuby to heal Rosa, and
realizes the hurry that Cecil is in.  Tellah will then tell you of the
horrifying monster that inhabits the cavern ahead with multiple tentacles.

Once the camping ends, SAVE your game, and then head out the stairs above
you.  Go right across a bridge, cut up to get an Icerod from the Treasure
Chest, and equip said Icerod on Rydia.  Head down to find and take two
ladders to the water below, and then walk right.  Take the small ladder up
onto land, and continue up to go thorugh the doore to the next area of the
cave.

Walk down to the bridge, head left across the bridge, go down, and then go
right to go across the bridges as they appear while collecting from the two
Treasure Chests (200 Gold Pieces and a Cure1).  head back to the fork in the
path where you will continue to the left across a bridge to find a ladder.
Go straight up the ladder to find a door that will take you to the next
section of the cave.

When you first step into this area, go up the ladders, grab the Cure1 from
the Treasure Chest, and then take the blue path in the wall.  go up and then
left to cut above the exit off the floor, and continue through the wall to
arrive at a ledge over looking the water.  Head down along the ledge to find
a Leather Hat for Rydia, and then you should back track through the secret
passage to come out near the stairs, which you will take to the next floor.

Walk up the path in front of you, but you need to cut leftt to go down the
ladder.  Head down the path to get two Ether1's from the two Treasure Chests
down there, and then go bac up the ladder you came down so you can go across
the bridge over the large ravine.  You will see the exit of the cave when
you cross, but you need to go down the ladder set below it to get the Heal
and the Darkness Sword from the two Treasure Chests.  Equip the Darkness
Sword on Cecil to recieve a 10 point attack power boost, and then head back
up the ladder set to exit the cave!

Walk left from the cave mouth, go up, stop just outside the next cave mouth,
use a Tent, SAVE, and then head into the darkness to go find the Tentacled
terror that Tellah mentioned previously.

Walk down off of the land into the water, where the waterfall's suction will
pull yuor party into the long fall, and the party will land just past some
rocks.  Take the ladder on your right to get out of the water before you
rust, and then head down the path in front of you.  When you see the ladder
leading down to two Treasure Chests, go down to get a Darkness Helmet and a
Darkness Gauntlet for Cecil (be sure to equip the two pieces of armor
immediately to reap the benfits of their protective goodness).  Head back up
the ladder, turn left to see a bridge, which you will go up and across to
the door that takes you to the next section of the cave.

Head right from the door to go across a bridge where you will see two
Treasure Chests (Darkness Armor you should eqip right away and an Ether1),
and then you should go across the bridge above you.  Go down into the water,
and then go up towards the tentacles sticking out of the water near the
waterfall to fight the terrible monster that Tellah warned you about!

--------
Octomamm
--------

H.P.: 700

Gold: 500

Exp.: 1200

--------
Tentacle
--------

H.P.: 250

This tentacled monster will attack you repeatedly while you take it down,
one tentacle at a time.  To beat this baddie, attack with Cecil's newly
aquirred Darkness Sword to really hit hard (for around 185 Hit Points per
hit), and cast Lit-1 with both Tellah and Rydia (occasionally taking time
out to cast a Cure spell when needed).  When Octomamm is knocked down to
two tentacles, it will slow down, and attack less often.  Once it is down to
a lone tentacle, you just need to hit it for 700 Hit Points, and it will
fall into the dpeths permanently!

Head out thorugh the hole in the waterfall that Octomamm was camped on, SAVE
your game, and then head north thorugh the narrows of the mountains, where
the view will go to a very high vantage point, and the Red Wings will bomb
Damycan unmercifully!


************************************
  The Sand Ruby Saga
************************************


You have just witnessed the horrific bombing of the desrt castle, so you

should rush north to get to the castle right away.  Once you enter, go
straight up past the dead guards to enter the door, and then go straight up
the stairs above.  Grab the Tent from the lone remaining Treasure Chest, and
then take the stairs on the south side of this room.  You will step forward
into this room to see a red-headed girl lying on the ground, and Tellah will
proclaim it is his Anna!

A Bard will come walking in from the right, and Tellah will attack him in a
rage.  The two will exchange dialogue, including the now infamous "Spoony
Bard" remark from Tellah, and the fight ends when Anna begs them to stop!
Anna will reveal that Edward (the Bard) is really the Prince of Damycan!

Anna also reveals that Golbez was in charge of the Red Wings when they
attacked, and not even Cecil knows who he is.  The forces of Baron took the
Crystal of Fire before they bombed the castle, and it was then that Anna
shielded Edward from the arrows. Anna then passes away, and Tellah vows he
will get Golbez, which is why he leaves immediately after!

Edward continues to be a broken wreck over Anna, and Rydia calls him a
crybaby.  Rydia will call Edward a coward, and he says he will remain with
Anna, which causes Cecil to slap him.  Cecil explains to Edward that he owes
Anna better than that, and that he and Rydia need his help.  Cecil explains
that he needs the SandRuby for Rosa, and Edward decides to help.  He knows
where the Antlion's cave is, and he volunteers his hovercraft to go across

the shallows in the water to get there.  Edward will then join your group!

You will appear outside in the Hovercraft, but you should park it in front
of the castle first.  Go back inside the castle to the room where Anna was
lying, and then go left to refill your Hit Points from the pot there,
followed by a trip right to refill your Magic Points form the pot there.
Now you need to head to the exit, take one step onto the sand of the desert,
and then walk right while hugging the wall.  As you go along the wall, you
will arrive at a building, so go inside.  Talk to the guard who was mortally
injured in the attack on the castle, and once he dissapears, flip the
switch so you can go through the opened passage to get a Crossbow, Leather

Hat, and a RubyRing!  Go back to where you saw the guard, turn left, go down
the stairs to find six Treasure Chests!  Get the 500 Gold Pieces, two
Cure1's, Life, and Ether1 the Treasure Chests have, as well as looking in
the pots for 20 White Arrows and 10 Iron Arrows!

Head back outside the castle to get back into your Hovercraft, head north to
the moutains above Damycan, and then turn east to go across the reefs until
you reach the far side of the water.  Now you need to head south until you
see a cave mouth where you will park your Hovercraft, SAVE your game, and
then enter the Antlion Cave.

Go left from the entrance to cross a small bridge, and then continue left to
find a Treasure Chest with 190 Gold Pieces inside.  Go down the ladder to
your right, go right around the ledge to head up underneath the bridge you
used earlier, and grab the contents of the Treasure Chest (it is a Cure1).
Go back down the narrow path into the open area where you will continue down
until you hit the edge, which is where you will go down the ladder to your
right.  Go down the path to your left, turn left at the wall, and then head
up the ladder to a path with a Tent and a Cure1 waiting to be plucked from
two Treasure Chests.

Back track to the ladder you used to get to this branch of the cave, and
then head right until you see a bridge.  Go under the bridge to get a Cure1
from the Treasure Chest, go back down, turn right, and climb the double
ladder to go up to get the 210 Gold Pieces in the Treasure Chest located
there.  Head down until you use the double ladder to go to the stairs to the
next level.

Head down until you open a Treasure Chest for a Life Potion, and then go
down the ladder below you before going left to take the next ladder up to
the door.  In this room, go left or right to find a ladder to find a Charm
Harp, which is a more powerful weapon for Edward (Equip it on him
immediately).  Exit the room from the same way you came in, and go left
(while ignoring the secret passage below) until you have yo head up.  When
you see the stairs, ignore them as you continue up just to the left of that
rock wall to climb a ladder.  Go right to grab the Heal from the Treasure
Chest, and then go left back down the ladder to head left across a small
bridge to get 250 Gold Pieces from the Treasure Chest.  Now you should head
right to come back to that stairs you passed earlier.

Go left upon appearing to enter a door.  Once inside the room, you will see
a SAVE CIRCLE, but you should first grab the Life Potion, the Ether1, and
the Tent before using a Tent to recover your HP/MP, followed by using the
SAVE on your game.  Once you are ready, head back out the door, go right,
and go back to B2.  When you appear, you have to go left to find a small
ladder, which you should go down.  Now you should continue downward to use
another small ladder, cut left, use the small ladder you see, and then go
between the two rocks on the ground to the stiarcase to the lower floor.

You have arrived in the Antlion's Nest where you just need to walk straight
down until Edward steps forward from the group to try and grab the SandRuby.
However, the Antlion will attack Edward (who dodges nimbly), and Cecil and
Rydia will charge forward to join Edward in battle!

-------
Antlion
-------

H.P.: 1000

Gold: 800

Exp.: 1500

For this battle, if you use regular attacks on the Antlion, he will use a
viscious counter attack on a party member for abnout 20 damage each time.
You have the option of attacking with all party members, followed by curing
the hurt party members, or you can just use Rydia's Call Magic to summon
Chocobo to deal about 150 to 200 damage each time (with no COunter used
against you).  If her Magic runs out before the Antlion dies, start using
conventional attacks with Cecil to finish it off (it will be near death).
Once you win, the SandRuby is yours!

Edward will reflect on how the Antlion is not a violent creature, but Cecil
thinks that with the world having an increase of other monsters, the Antlion
has been affected by their presence somehow.  Once the conversation
finishes, move straight up to get to the stairs to B2.

Go up to the ladder on your left, turn right, and then go up two small

ladders.  Turn right, go down the tall ladder, and continue down until you
hit the wall.  Go right past the first ladder, climb the second ladder, and
then continue upwards over the next two ladders to get to the stairs to B1.

Head up the double ladder, turn left to cross the bridge, and go down the
small ladder.  Walk left to take the ladder above you to the next ledge,
where you should head up to reach the stairs to reach the outside world!

Get in your Hovercraft, go north to the shallows, cross the water, and then
make for Damycan.  Go inside to the top floor to fill up your Hit Points and
Magic Points from the two pots up there, and the old man that is there will
tell you that the Hovercraft can take you to Kaipo over the shallows!  Head
back out to the Hovercraft, take it west to find shallows on the coast, and
go south along the shallows to bypass the massive mountain range in your
way.

Once you are in the desert, head to Kaipo, and take the SandRuby into town.
Head right towards the weapon shop, and then follow the stream until you
pass a bridge, at which point you will go right into the small building.
Walk to the back room where Rosa is, and talk to her.  this will bring an
item screen up, which is where you should select the SandRuby, and voila,
Rosa is cured!


************************************
  Warning Fabul!
************************************


When Rosa is awake, you will discover that Golbez was invited by the King of
Baron to take command of the Red Wings, and you now know that Golbez is to
blame for the masacre at Damycan.  you also learn that Golbez appears to be
controlling the King, in an effort to get all the Crystals (Crystal of Fire
from Damycan, Crystal of Air from Fabul, and Crystal of Earth from Toroia).
Since Damycan has already been attacked, Fabul is the next logical target
for Baron, but the path to Mt. Hobs is blocked by a thick ice, which Rydia
should be able to melt, but she is severely afraid of fire since her
village burned down.  Rosa will then let Cecil know she is joining them on
the journey, regardless of what he thinks.

That night...  Edward goes outside to play his harp and think of how much he
misses Anna, when suddenly, a monster attacks!

--------
WaterHag
--------

H.P.: 60 (three hits in actuality)

Gold: 100

Exp.: 800

Choose to fight the whole time, and Anna (her ghost) will offer her
encouragement until Edward has finished the WayerHag off!

Edward and Anna (her ghost) will say goodbye to one another, and Anna will

charge Edward with helping to stop the evil movement of Golbez before she
leaves for good.  Edward swears to do what he can, but he still harbours
doubts on what he should do.

The group be already to go in the morning, but enter the menu screen first.
Make sure that Rosa, Rydia and Edward are all in the back row, with Cecil
in the front row.  This allows them to have maximum use of their attacks,
and avoids any problems they have with their Hit points and Armor.  Now you
should go to equip, take off Rosa's Shortbow in favour of the Crossbow, and
then equip the 20 White Arrows you found in Damycan instead of the 50 Iron
Arrows.  Now you should look at her Armor to see if you can improve upon
what she is wearing already (Leather Hat for her Cap is a good example),
and then head out of kaipo, SAVE your game, and then hop in the Hovercraft.

Go back through the shallows around the huge mountain range, go past
Damycan, across the shallows, and park your Hovercraft right near the
mountain pass to the east.  SAVE your game, and enter the mountain pass.

Walk forward, and the group will split apart to reveal Rosa encouraging
Rydia to cast Fire1.  Rydia is still frightened of fire, but thanks to some
encouragement from the rest of the group by telling her how many more people
could suffer at the hands of Baron (like she and her village did), she casts
Fire1 to melt the ice ahead of the group.  Rydia will learn Fire1
permanently, and the group is grateful to her for her help.


Go up through the now opened path, go left, climb the stairs, and go into
the door ahead of you.  Go left and down the path in front of you in the new
area to see a SAVE CIRCLE, which you should continue past along the path to
see four Treasure Chests.  Grab the (from left to right) Tent, Cure1, Heal,
and 350 Gold Pieces, and then head eft once again to SAVE on the SAVE
CIRCLE.  Now you should head back to the door, go through, go right, and
then go through the door you find there.

You will find yourself on the Summit, so head right past the stairs to find
10 White Arrows (equip them on Rosa to add to her total), and then head up
the various set of stairs to see blue-robed bad guys and a Karate Master
entering battle with one another.  He will take two down, and then engage
the three Imp Captains in battle, which he will dispose of rather easily.
Once this battle ends, a rather large enemy will approach, and your party
decides to help the man out.  When you appear, you will find out his name is

Yang, and he has two attacks: Fight (single target), and Kick (multiple
targets).

-------
MomBomb
-------

H.P.: 1500 (to cause metamorphisis)

Gold: 0

Exp.: 0

You first step in this fight is to start taking this MomBomb down.  Attack
with Cecil, Edward, and Yang (his FIght, not Kick), while Rydia and Rosa
Cure wounds while throwing their attacks in (Rosa should Aim and Rydia
should Call Chocobo).  When the MomBomb starts to grow, stop using magic
attacks, and then make sure your party has as many Hit Points as possible
because the MomBomb will explode after a short time!  This will lead into
an all new battle...

----        ---------
Bomb        Grey Bomb
----        ---------

H.P: 50     H.P.: 100

Gold: 240   Gold: 150

Exp.: 370   Exp.: 450

You will be penalised about 60 to 80 Hit points on each member of your team,
so get them to Cure each other up as fast as possible (especially Ryida,
Rosa, and Edward with their low Hit Points).  Once you have done that, get
Edward to attack the Bombs (he should be able to charm them, and thus add
attacks to your side while lessening theirs), get Cecil, Rosa and Yang to
double team a Grey Bomb, and have Rydia Call a Chocobo to kill a Grey Bomb
off herself.  If done correctly, none of the opposing forces will be able
to get their Explosion attacks off, and you will win easily!


After the batlle Yang will formally introduce himself, and tell you that the
main forces of Fabul were wiped out by the attacking force you and he just
fought off.  With mere trainees remaining at the castle, all appears lost,
but Cecil and company are ready to rush to Fabul to help defend it from
Golbez and Baron.  Yang will then join your party, fix his equipment (give
him anything that will improve his defense), and head out the door above you
to start down the other side of the mountain!

Head right across the bridge, and then head down the windy path to arrive at
the exit off the mountain pass.  Once on the overworld screen, use a Tent if
your team is badly beaten up (they likely will be), and then SAVE the game.

Start your trek to Fabul by heading north-east up the skinny section of land
between the water, and then cut southeast between the opening of the two
different mountain ranges.  Continue along the base of the lower mountain

range of the two you just walked between until you can cut south between
the mountain range to your left and your right.  Head directly east once the
mountain range on your right stops being on your right, and you will find a
bridge across the water to the castle of Fabul (be sure to SAVE your game

before entering the castle)!

Before you enter, unequip all of Rosa's equipment, as well as Rydia.  Check
to see if they are wearing anything that can be used on Edward or Yang to
improve their equipment, and then enter.  Walk straight up to go through a
door, cut right to enter the door with the two swords above it.  Buy a
second claw for Yang, and then buy all three Black armors for Cecil (Helmet,
Armor, and Gauntlet).  Equip these items, sell your excess weapons and
armors, exit the room, cross the hallway to go to the Inn, and stay the
night.  Now head back outside to SAVE your game with your refreshed troops.

Head straight back up through the door, straight up past the Inn/Armory Shop
soors to take the stairs, and go straight up once more to the next floor.
You will arrive in the King's Room, so walk forward till Yang steps in front
of you.  He will explain that Golbez has mobilized Baron against the forces
of Fabul in an attempt to get the Crystal of Air.  The King will then ask
who brought this warning, and he will question if Cecil is trustworthy,
which Yang assures the King he is.  Edward will then step forward to throw
his royalty power behind the warning, and the King will then request the
help of the group to work against Baron.  After saying YES, the King will
give your fate over to Yang to defend the strategy, and the girls opt to sit
this one out, which means you lose your Cure magic (you will need to use the
Cure1's you have been amassing as you go).  Rosa wil warn Cecil to be
careful, and Cecil will do the same.

The scene will cut to the entrance, and the enemy will be charging the
castle!

Take the fighters out quickly with your attacks, and the General will
quickly retreat, giving you the win!  The other option is to kill the
General first, and then the Fighters, but this will take longer, and more of
your Hit Points, which are only refillable during battle in this melee.

The Red Wings will start to bomb the outside of the castle, so you will be
forced  to retreat to the inside of the castle.  Yang will apoligize, but
Cecil thinks not all is lost yet.  The enemies will knock the gate down,
and a group will attack your team!

Get Yang to Kick, Edward to attack the WaterHag, and set Cecil to attacking
the Weeper.  When the Weeper is all that remains, set all three of your
party to attacking it for the victory!

Two more teams for the enemy will rush in to kill the two teams guarding the
Inn and Shop Armory, so Yang decides it is time to withdraw.  As your team
withdraws, two teams of guards will be left behind to fend for themsleves.

Yang informs you in the next room that the King has withdrawn to the women
and childrens quarters.  Following this, the enemies will have finished the
guards in the previous room, and they willbreak the door down to attack your
party!

Edward will see that more forces are charging in, and he will call for the
retreat to the Throne Room.  Yang locks the door as he enters, so he hopes
this will help hold the enemies off.  The guard with Yang will unlock the
door, and he will change into an enemy as Yang demands to know what the
guard is doing.

Yang will suggest a tactical retreat to the Crystal Room upstairs, but
suddenly Edward will trip!  He will be jumped on by the approaching enemies,
and Cecil and Yang will immediately rsh to his aid!

your Hit Points, which are only refillable during battle in this melee.

Your team will then complete their retreat to the Crystal ROom, and just as
they turn to defend against the next monster team, Kain will wander in to
the room!

You will then go into battle with Kain, who will taunt you as he rips Cecil
down to near death, and the fight will end there.  Kain threatens to put
Cecil down for good, when Rosa runs in to stop Kain.  Kain feels absolutely

terrible when Rosa realizes Kain has betrayed his best friend.  Following
this, a mysterious voice will boom out...

"Why so upset, Kain?"

This is when the evil organ music will hit, and Golbez will saunter in
wearing his dark clothing.  Edward and Yang will block Golbez from reaching
the Crystal, but he easily blasts them to the side with an energy blast!
Golbez will command Kain to take the Crystal of Air, which Kain will do
eagerly for his Master.  Rosa begs Kain not to, and when Cecil tries to warn
Rosa to not get involved, Golbez will take her into his custody as a token
of a promise to Cecil that they will meet again!  Kain will warn Cecil he
will not be so lucky next time, and leaves with the Crystal.

Rydia will cast Cure to get the party back onto it's feet.  The group will
despair at the loss of the Crystal and Rosa.  They will not give up, and
they decide that they should rest and figure a plan out for rescuing Rosa
from Golbez!

  The Ordeal
************************************


Head out of the Crytsal Room, go examine the pot on the left for a Cure1,
and then talk to the man in front of the throne to learn that the King was
wounded, and he is resting in his bedrrom.  Go right to the top right conrer
of the room, step on the switch, and go into the secret passage that opened
up.  Go right till you stop, head down till you stop, and then head right to
find a Cure1, a Black Shield (equip it on Cecil), and an Ether1.  Now head
back to the Throne Room, and exit.

Go down through this room to the next floor, and go into the Inn to spend
the night for free.  Before you go to sleep however, the party decides that
they need an Airship, but only Baron has them.  Cecil reveals that Baron has
a weak Navy, thus that would be an excellent way to sneak into Baron.  Yang
says that he can convince the King to give him a ship, and then Cecil
explains who Kain is.

The group will rest, and when they awaken, the King will have summoned them
to his chamber.  He will give the ship to the group, and he will offer Cecil
the ultimate weapon of any Dark Knight (it was left by a Dark Knight who
came to Fabul many years ago).  The ship is waiting for your team out in the
harbour to the east of town whenever they wosh it, and then the King leaves
them with the charge of keeping all four Crystals from Golbez, or he will
attain power enough to plunge the entire world into an incredible crisis!

Grab the Tent from the Treasure Chest in the King's Chamber before you exit,
and then in the next room, examine the lowest pot for 500 Gold Pieces.  Go
down to the next room, and then out the door.  Go down and right to the door
below you, and enter.  Walk around the walls to take the stairs down to the
next floor, and then walk staright down to go outside.  Once outside, go
down to exit the castle completely.

Head east to stop just short of the harbour where the ship awaits, SAVE your
game, and take all the equipment from Yang and Edward.  Step into the
harbour to have Yang's Wife send the troops off in style.  you will sail out
into the open sea, and the team will discuss what they should do at Baron
when they arrive.  Cecil says they should seek out Cid, and the trip
continues.

Suddenly, the sea will become extremely rough!  Leviathan has created a
whirlpool, and your ship is being dragged into it!  The Sailors panic, and
they can do nothing to stop the happenings.  Rydia will be hurled overboard
on the first jolt from Leviathan, and Yang will immediately dive in to save
the poor girl.  The attacks will continue from Leviathan, and the ship will
be dragged in.

The scene blacks out, and then returns to reveal Cecil all lone on the
beach.  Once again Cecil has been left with no one to help him.  Head into
the nearby town to get some idea of where you washed up.

you will enter the town to discover that you have washed uo near Mysidia!
This is the town where the Red Wings, under the command of Cecil, pillaged
Mysidia of their Crystal of Water while wiping out some White Wizards and
Black Wizards.  Many of the townfolk hold a rather large grudge, and some
will even change you into a Toad, Pig, or Tiny Person depending on what
spell they use.  For now, you should just straight up through the middle of
town to arrive in a building with the Elder you threatened on your last
visit here!

The Elder will be extremely suspicious of your motives, but Cecil will
explain that he no longer is associated with the Kingdom of Baron.  The
Elder hears the story of how Cecil has lost his friends, and realizes that
this makes it his trial, but he will never succeed while depending upon such
a Dark Sword.  He will charge Cecil with going to Mt. Ordeals in the east,
where Cecil will be able to renounce his dark ways and embrace the light.
If he manages to do this, he will become a Paladin, which is a knight of the
light.  He decides that Cecil would be in too much danger to go by himself,
so he summons two Wizards to assist him.

Parom will appear, but her twin Palom will goof off and not appear directly.
Cecil can not believe that the Elder would assign him these children, but
the Elder assures them that they are powerful, and they will join your team.
With their joining, Cecil is now free to start his trip to Mt. Ordeals to
wash himself of his darkness.

Go into the town, and cut left to go to the Armor Shop.  Buy 2 Gaea Helmets,
2 Gaea Shirts, and 2 Silver Rings, which you should equip on Palom and
Parom.  With any left over cash you may have, buy some Paladin armors, even
though no one can equip these pieces at the present moment (the Black Mage
to the left of the counter will tell you that these Paladin pieces wil be
usable if you return successfully, but he doubts you wil make it back!).

Go outside town, SAVE your game, and then head out into the wilderness of
the east.  Once you can go no further east, go south until the water to your
right stops, and go right before heading north up the narrow land to end up
in the forest.  Once the water on your right stops, walk to the east until
a mountain in the south-west appears with a path winding into it.  Walk down
to the base of the mountain, use a Tent to regain your Hit Points and Magic
Points, SAVE your game, and then enter Mount Ordeals.

Go left to discover a wall of Fire, which will prompt Parom to remind her
brother it is his turn (what dies that mean exactly?), and Palom will cast
Ice1 to knock the wall of flame down.  Palom will celebrate his skills, but
Parom will use a tap to his head to remind him they must be humble.

Meahwhile...

Golbez, Kain, and the captive Rosa will be scene in a very odd looking
setting.  Golbez will summon Milon of Earth, who is a master of the undead
as well.  Although Cecil can not damage the Undead well due to his Dark
Sword, Golbez fears Cecil becoming a Paladin, so Milon has been commanded to
stop him.  Kain thinks that Cecil is formidable, and Golbez agrees.
However, he sent Milon, and that should be enough because Milon is one of
the Four Elements.  Kain wants to go and finish Cecil off, but Golbez
decides Kain is too imcompentent to do it, so he will remain to watch over
Rosa.

Back to Mount Ordeals, where Cecil should head right past the stairs to get
a Cure1 from a Treasure Chest.  Go up the stairs to your left, go right to
get another Cure1 from a Treasure Chest, and then head left to climb the
stairs so you can reach the door above to reach the next section of the
Mount Ordeals.

You will arrive at the 3rd Station of the mountain, so go left to climb the
stairs.  Go right to see a path up to the next ledge where Tellah will
suddenly wander out od the door above you!

Cecil and Tellah will greet one another, and Tellah reveals he hunts for the
legendary spell Meteo!  The twins realize they are in the presence of a
legend among magic users, and they greet him.  DUring their conversation,
Palom says their Elder sent them to spy on... which prompts Parom to hit
Palom (spy on what?).  They are Cecil's guide to Mount Ordeals, and Tellah
realizes their power.  He then asks about Rydia and Edward, and Cecil tells
of losing them at sea, as well as Golbez taking Rosa.  Tellah reveals he
will use Meteo at the cost of his own life if necessary to defeat Golbez to
avenge his daughter.  Cecil reveals his quest to be a Paladin, so Tellah
agrees to come along as he senses great power in this mountain.  Head
through the door above you to move into the next area.

You will appear at the 7th Station of the mountain, so go left past the
narrow path gping up tot he next ledge so you can climb the stairs to get an
Ether1 from the Treasure Chest.  Go back to the narrow path on the right,
climb to the next ledge, and then head right to climb up the two sets of
stairs.  Walk left across a bridge to go down a narrow path to get an Ether1
from the Treasure Chest, and then go thorugh the door that is up and to the
right (it willget you to the next area).

You have arrived at the Summit, so step down from the door to hear hissing,
and Palom gets the blames despite his claims of innocence.  Go up to the
right of the door to see a small bridge on your right, which you will cross
to use a Tent in the SAVE CIRCLE, SAVE your game, and then head left across
the birdge once more.  More hissing will get more Palom claims of innocnece,
and then you should climb the stairs to head left across the bridge.  The
hissing will happen once again, but this time Tellah senses the evil
responsible for it.  Milon wil then appear to start his attacks!

Milon will appear with 4 Ghasts ready to back him up.  Since Cecil's sword
is utterly useless on Undead enemies, get him to focus his attacks on the
Fiend of Earth.  Palom and Parom should use their Twin attacks (Flare and
Comet), and Tellah should use Fire1 and Cure2 when necessary.  Make sure to
keep the Twin's Hit Points up to end this battle quickly!

Once the battle ends, head back down the stairs, right across the bridge to
the SAVE CIRCLE, where you should do the Tent and SAVE scenario.  Now go
right across the bridge once more, climb the stairs, and then stop when you
reach the bridge.  Go into the menu, toggle Change so your three magic users
will be in the front row, with Cecil in the back row.  Continue across the
bridge, and just as you get across, Milon will attack from beyond the grave,
as it is where his greatest power lies!

Milon Z

Gold: 3000

He will attack from behind, so it is good that you have already switched
your party's positions around to compensate.  This time he has no helpers,
so just have Cecil attack Milon, have Palom and Parom use Twin attacks, and
then have Tellah act as your Cure man as well as Heal the poison that Milon
Z will inflict upon your team.  You can also use Cure spells to harm Milon Z
because he is Undead.  Not a difficult battle, but his frequent poisoning of
your team can be irratating.

Milon will be astonished you kicked him around twice, and suddenly the
ground will shake, causing Milon to fall off the bridge into the deep chasm
below!  Heal any posion cases that you still have, and then unequip all of
Cecil's armor and his weapon.  Now walk to the monolith on your left, and
suddenly a voice will decree...

"My son..."

Cecil: Son!?  Who are you?

With that, a bright light will take Cecil and the party inside the powerful
structure.

"I've been waiting.  Sorow fills me.  I shall entrust you with my power.
 And grieve that no other way remains.

A sword will come down to Cecil, who grabs it, and he is transformed into
a Paladin!

"Part from your past!  Conquer the Darkness within!  If you can't overcome
 your past self, the sacred power of Light will not accept you!"

All of a sudden, Cecil's reflection comes from the Mirror, but is his him as
a Dark Knight!  The party wants to help, but Cecil insists that he fight
this battle on his own to amend for his transgressions in the past on the
side of darkness.

You have two options for fighting this inner evil of Cecil.  you can do the
preferred method of parrying and using your recently aquirred Cure magic
until the Dark Knight quits his attacks (this is the easiest method), or you
can attack and use Cure2 itmes to beat the 1000 Hit Points out of the Dark
Kinght (exceptionally difficult to do).  If you shoose the beat him up
method, and you bought the Paladin Shield before coming to Mount Ordeals,
go into Item on your first turn, press up to see Cecil's hands, select the
empty spot, and then go down the list to put the Paladin Shield on him to
increase his defense.  Either method works, but choose one that you feel the
most comfortable doing.

The presence will leave, and Cecil will wonder who that presence was as it
seemed so familiar.  Tellah will then remember his forgotten spells (he
forgot a lot fo them!), and then he will suddenly learn the spell of Meteo
as well.  The Light has not only helped Cecil overcome his Darkness, but it
also bestowed upon Tellah the ultimate Black Magic as well!

Palom and Parom will want to tell Cecil something, but Tellah will want to
leave.  Cecil will wonder who addressed him as "My Son", and the team will
leave the monolith to head back to Mysidia.



************************************
  The Price of an Airship
************************************


Go into the Menu, toggle Chnage to switch the party to proper alignment,
Equip any other armor you have for Cecil, and then go right across the
bridge to take the stairs before you cut right across the small bridge to
SAVE your game.  Now head down to go through the door below to start your
descent to the bottom of the mountain.

Head right across the bridge, down the two flights of stairs, and then left
to take the narrow path down.  Go right to go through the door to go to the
next area of the mountain.  Go down the narrow path, walk left, and then go
down the stairs to head right to go through the door.  Now you just need to
go down the stairs on your left, followed by using the the stairs to your
right.  Next you need to walk left, down, and then right to reach the exit
from Mount Ordeals.

Once outside, you are faced with two choices of how to get back to Mysidia.
You can use the conventional way of walking back (not a bad idea for raising
Cecil some levels), or you can go to the Chocobo Village that is nearby
(free ride back to town).  To get to the Chocobo Village, walk straight down
from Mount Ordeals, and just to the west, yuo will see a circular forest,
which is where you need to walk into the middle of the circle.

Walk west to leave the forest behind, and once you enter the next forest,
start walking south.  When the land bridge turns west, you have to do the
same, followed by a turn north,  Now you have reached a part where the land
branches left, so follow suit by heading west until you see Mysidia to the
north of your location.

Go into Mysidia to immediatly go to the Armor Shop to get Cecil the rest of
the Paladin armor pieces he needs to complete his set.  Now remember that
you excess Dark Knight equipment you no longer need, so sell it for cash, as

well as some of your lesser equipment left over from previous party members.
You should also think about getting Tellah a Gaea Hat and a Silver Ring.

you should now head for the Inn if you are weakened, and following that,
head to the Elder's house in the centre of town.  The Elder will be happy to
see you have changed your ways, but he also feels guilt about sending Parom
and Palom along to spy on your progress (that is what Palom kept slipping up
on)!  Palom and Parom will apoligize, but Cecil does not mind.  The Elder
then notices the Sword in the hands of Cecil, and exclaims that it is
inscribed with the Mysidian Legend!


                      One to be born

                       from a dragon

                     hoisting the light

                        and the dark

                        arise high up

                        in the sky to

                       the still land.

                    Veiling the Moon with

                    the light of eternity,

                          it brings

                       another promise

                    to mother earth with

                     a bounty and mercy.


Mysidians have wished for their legend for generations, and in the one who
has the Sacred Light.  Cecil appears to be the one with the Sacred Light!
Tellah is still bent on destroying Golbez, and the Elder recognizes Tellah
immediately, but warns Tellah againstusing Meteo at his advanced age and
condition.  The next step however, is to get to Baron to locate an Airship
so the Red Wings will be neutralized in their power.

The Elder responds by opening the Serphent Road for Tellah and Cecil to use
to get to Baron.  Palom and Parom have decided to go along, and the Elder
decides that it is their destiny to go along.  The group is told to go to
the east side of town to find the Serphant Road, and with that the Elder
heads into the Crystal Room to start praying for the legend to come true.

Head out into the two common area, go right to enter the building above the
well, and then step foot onto the white circle to be transported to Baron!

When you appear, walk at the door tyo pen it, and head outside the building.
A quick little walk and talk with the townspeople will let you know that
Baron has become a very bad place to live, and that your good friend Cid has
been imprisoned!  Head to outside of twon, SAVE your game, and then head for
the Inn.

Walk past the counters on your left as you enter, press the A Button while
facing the crossed over swords on the wall to open the door to your right,
and grab the Tent, Heal, and Cure1 from the Treasure Chests.  If you have
been looking elsewhere in the room while doing this, you will have noticed
Yang is sitting at the table to your left with some soldiers!  Go over and
try to talk to him, he will suddenly send the Soldiers into battle with you!

H.P: 200

Gold: 500

Attack with Cecil, use Twin with Palom and Porom, and cast Size on anyone
who the guards shrink in size with Tellah.  Not a tough battle, but you will
likely have at least one midget on your team after the battle.

Yang does recognize Cecil, but he still attacks regardless of that fact.

-------------
Yang (Karate)

H.P.: 4000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 0

Have Cecil attack, Palom and Parom should use Twin repeatedly, and Tellah
should keep your health high while attacking with hard hitting spells like
Virus, and level 3 elemental spells (Ice, Fire, Lit).  It is also a good
idea for Tellah to cast Size on anyone who is still small fromt he Guard
battle.  Yang will use regular attacks, as well as his Kick (this does
considerable damage to each party member).  Just make sure to keep the Twin
attacks coming, and you will romp to vicotry.

Yang will reveal he remembers nothing after diving into the water, but he
now can.  Cecil inquires about Rydia and Edward, to which Yang says Rydia
was swallowed by Rydia (poor girl) and Edward he knows nothing of.  Cecil
suggests they relocate their conversation, and Yang joins the party!

They go to the Inn keeper, who allows them to stay for free because the
awful guards are gone.  They realize getting tot he castle to free Cid is
going to be a tough chore, but Yang find the Key of Baron on his person,
which allows the party to open the doors in the City of Baron that were
locked previously!

Take a look at the equipment of Yang before going anywhere in the morning,
and equip him with the best possible stuff.  If you need Claws, go to the
weapon shop to get him some.  Now you should get a Headband and a Karate Gi
for Yang from the Armor counter, and then go outside of town to SAVE the
game.

Now you need to go into the secret waterway that is behind the other locked
door in town.  This building is located in the south-west corner of town,
and when you enter town, just head left till you can go no further, followed
by cutting up the wall to see a door by the long grass.  At this point, you
will see a small door beside you, and this is where you need to go.  Use the
Baron Key to enter, and prepare to battle your way inside the Castle walls!

When you first enter theroom, it appears to be a simple room, but where the
room juts to the right, walk through the wall and the secret passage to find
a Treasure Chest with 1000 Gold Pieces inside of it!  Head back to the main
room, and go down the stairs to the next floor.

Head down across the bridge, continuing down into the narrow passage below
where you should take the first right.  Grab the three Treasure Chests for
the following items (left to right on screen as listed): Cure2, Ether1, and
Life Potion, which is followed by you continuing along the detour path to
rejoin the main path.  Head up across the waterway via the three bridges to
continue through the path to the next bridge set.  Go across it to arrive at
the entrance to the next floor.

Walk into the water via the ladder, go through the secret passage below you,
and grab the 500 Gold Pieces from the Treasure Chest.  Head through the
secret passage at the bottom of that small room, grab the Life Potion in the
Treasure Chest, and then take the secret passage to your right.  In this
room you have the one option of going to the next secret passage, but go
straight up when the path branches so you cone out in the water near a small
ladder, which you should climb so you can claim a Life Potion.  Head back
into the secret passage you just exited, take the branch you ignored (it
goes to the right), and then head up the narrow water passage to climb a
ladder to the stairs to the next floor.

When you arrive at this floor, go straight up and right as you walk until
you climb a ladder. Before you take the stairs to B1 however, go left
through the secret passage to get an Ether1.

When you arive here, go left from the stairs to find a door, which you
should enter immediately.  Go past the SAVE CIRCLE to the secret passage in
the right wall to find an Ancient Sword.  Now your party should go to the
SAVE CIRCLE, use a Tent, SAVE, and then exit the room.  From here on when
you enter Random Battles, you should run to minimize Hit Point loss and to
conserve Magic Points for the battles ahead.  Head right to find a ladder
that takes you to the stairs that will get you out of the cave!

You will appear to be in Baron's moat, so you should get out of it as fast
as you can.  Head left till the moat starts to flow down, which you will
follow.  When you reach teh south-west corner of the castle, an entrance
into the castle will be visible in the wall, so go through it.  If you have
been hurt on your way here, go to Cecil's tower (head straght up till a door
at a base of a tower is there), and use his bed to recover your Hit Points
and Magic Points.

Now head for the Throne Room through the door linked to the centre
structure of the castle (it is to the right of the jail).  Go straight up
in this room to exit to the top of a wall, where you head right to go down
some stairs back into the castle.  Head down and to the right, when a voice
will yell out to your party!  It is Baigan!  He will join your party as he
says he has not been corrupted!

However, Palom and Parom smell something... something like a MONSTER!
Baigan plays innocent, but the twins are not fooled.  this will send Baigan
into a rage and he attacks!

Baigan has three parts to him, his Left Arm, his Right Arm, and Baigan
himself.  You will need to kill the Baigan pat before you can kill the Arms
off (Baigan wil continually revive them).  Use the Twin attack for Palom and
Parom, attack with Cecil and Yang, and Tellah will be a healer and Ether
distributor for the Twins.  Baigan has an extra trick he can use, but only
if he is prodded to do so.  Any magic attack against him, with the exception
of the Twin attacks, will cause him to cast Wall on the Baigan part of the
Boss.  After he does this, no magic will be able to penentrate his wall
(including Twin attacks).  Be sure to not use any magic directly on Baigan,
because this will greatly complicate the battle.  Otherwsie, Baigan will use
physical attacks only, along with the occasional Recover to cause his Arms
to reappear.  his Arms can use Vampire (a drain spell) and Entangle (a Hold
spell).

After the battle, you should head for Cecil's tower to sleep a night to get
your Magic Points and Hit Points refilled.  Now you should manuveur back
into the room you fought Baigan in, and then you should head up to the door
above.  Continue up through the next two rooms to arrive in the Throne Room,
who you should immediately talk to.  The King does not like your change in
occupation, and he then he remembers the old King, who he disposed of when
he refused to surrender!  He then says he is nothing like Milon, and he
reveals himself as Kainazzo, the Fiend of Water!

--------
Kainazzo
--------

H.P.: 4000

Gold: 4000

Exp.: 5500

Kainazzo has two different attacks poses.  I will give strategies to fight
both forms.

REGULAR

Attack Kainazzo with Cecil and Yang, Twin attack with Palom and Parom, and
use Tellah as part healer, part Ice3 caster.  Kainazzo is weaker against Ice
when he is in this form.

WATER GATHERING

When he has built a wall of water around him, the attacks stay the same for
every one but Tellah.  Get him to use Lit-3 on Kainazzo.  Kainazzo is weaker
against lightning when water is gathering, and it will also disperse the
water, sending Kainazzo back to regular form.

Kainazzo is rather easy to defeat, but be sure to watch out for his Wave
attack, which will remove over 100 Hit Points from each of your party
members.  You should be able to wipe this guy out quickly, and with minimal
fuss.

Immediately after finishing kainazzo off, a voice will boom from behind you
as the doors to the Throne Room crash open to revel a rather mad Cid.  After
realizing that he was avenged by Cecil, he will lead the troup towards his
hidden Airship!  However, Kainazzo will have one final ace in his sleeve as
he attacks from beyond the grave!

The walls are closing in, and both doors are locked!  Palom and Porom will
look at one another, and they will position themselves one to each side of
the group.  After saying how much they enjoyed helping out, they will turn
themselves to stone just as the walls start to really draw near.  They
become Stone Statues, and the group will grieve as they admire the courage
of such young people (even Tellah can not remove the spell).

Cid will continue the group to the Enterprise, which is his most recent
Airship!  Before that happens however...


Meahwhile...  Golbez and Kain plot on how to get the final Crystal.  They
decide to make Cecil fetch it as it is in a hard to get to area.

Cid takes the remaining party members to the hidden location of the
Enterprise.  Cid will then take her into the air...



************************************
  The Crystal of Earth
************************************


The newly christened Airship will go into the air above Baron, and the enemy
will approach quickly in their own Airship.  They are flying a white flag
however, and Kain will pilot up beside the Enterprise.  Kain says to Cecil
he must get the Crystal of Earth from Toroia to exchange for Rosa.  The
party can not believe the depths to Golbez's evil, and how far Kain has sunk
into darkness.  The party is left with no choice but to go to Toroia to get
the Crystal of Earth.

Before you head there however, you may want to explore the world a bit.
this will give you an idea of some locales you will visit later, and it
might also yield some Weapons and Armors that will be of use to you.

First, head north to look at what is available in Mist.  When you first go
into town, head towards the area that you found Rydia and her mother, and
look around in the grass for a hidden Treasure Chest to get 100 Gold Pieces.
Go left and into the building in the north-west section of town, and walk
through the burned out fireplace to find three treasure Chests containing
a Tiara, Cloth, and a RubyRing.  Next you should head right to pass through
the wall and into a hidden path that leads to a Treasure Chest holding the
CHange Rod.  Head down to the bottom of town to find the Wepaon and Armor
building, find the well, and then walk right into the trees.  Manuveur your
way to the grass section in the trees, and find the two hidden Treasure
Chests to get a Cure1 and a Heal.

Now that you are done here, our next stop should be Silvera.  First you need
to fly down to the lake in the mountains below Mist (this is the part higher
than the waterfall), and then fly west to arrive at Silvera.  This is a town
of small people, toads, and pigs (spells that change your shape in the
game).

Head up between the two buildings on the path, and then cut right to enter
the grass where a Silver Staff awaits you in a hidden Treasure Chest.  Now
head left on the path, cut between the empty building and the Weapon and
Armor Shop to go right to the small grass area to find a Silver Dagger in a
hidden Treasure Chest.  Walk left to the other patch of grass you can see to
find 5000 Gold Pieces in a hidden Treasure Chest, and then you should enter
the Weapon Shop.  Sell the Silver Dagger and Silver Staff (Tellah never
attacks, so sell his costly weapon), and then buy a Silver Hammer for Cid.
Make your way to the Armor section of the building so you can buy Silver
armor wares for Cid who has basically no equipment (he is wearing a Prisoner
outfit!).  If you have any money left over, buy Cecil some of the Silver
armor wares to slightly improve his defenses.  Now head out of town, and we
can head for Toroia.

Fly north from Silvera, and when you hit the mainland (no longer seeing a
chain of islands), start going east to come across Toroia.  Land beside the
Castle on the ONLY spot near the living space.  You should then enter the
castle to present yourself before the leaders of Toroia so you can request
the use of their Crystal of Earth.

Head up the path past the four guards to find the Clerics who rule this
nation (enter the door).  Continue up the red carpet to take the stairs to
the next floor to find the eight Clerics.  You will learn that you are too
late in acquiring the Crystal of Earth as the Dark Elf took it to his cave
in the north-west!  To make matters worse, the cave has a heavy magnetism
pull on metals, making it near impossible to move when you enter.  You have
been given permission to use the Crystal of Earth for a purpose of good, but
only if you collect it from the Dark Elf first.

With this knowledge in hand, we should explore the castle to see if we can
locate some Treasure to help you.  Head out of the Cleric's room, go left to
go outside via the door there, and then go down the path to the door below.
You will enter a sick room, and you will see Edward lying in bed!

Edward wants to join your team, however he much too weak to do so.  Edward
meets Cid and asks about things, which prompts Cecil to mention the Dark
Elf.  Edward recalls something, but only elaborates by saying this TwinHarp
might help in the future...


For now there is nothing that Edward can do for you or vice versa, so head
back out the door, up to the other door, cut right across the room to the
door on the far right, and then go down to the door below you.  You will see
three sets of stairs leading down a floor, but you only need to worry about
going down the middle stairs to find an Ether1 in a pot, and then go down
the right stairs.  In this room, walk back and forth across the switch in
plain sight to open all four doors so you can collect the following Treasure
Chest goodies (from left to right): Tent, Tent, Cure2, Cure2, Ether1,
Ether1, RubyRing, and RubyRing.  Now you should leave the castle by going
back to the main area, and heading down out the gates.

Our next stop is to go into town to get some supplies.  Head straight up to
cross a bridge to find the Item Shop, which you should enter so you can buy
some Cure1's and Tent's if you need any.  Now you should roam town talking
to the citizens to see if they have any useful information as you scavenge
for items.  Also be sure to seek out everyone, as an old friend lurks in
this castle!

Go right past the Inn to find a staircase going into a pond, which contains
the two bathing ladies.  Go past them to walk up the narrow stream past
three bridges, and you should continue straight up (instead of the left
branch) until you see another staircase for you to use to get out of the
water.  Head left and down through the trees to arrive in a long grass area
that has 1000 Gold Pieces, Ether2, Ether1, and Cure2 in hidden Treasure
Chests.  Walk all the way back into the town area.  Head outside of town to
get ready to set off for the Dark Elf's cave!

His island is in the north-west, and is easily found.  However, you will
notice a slight problem with the Airship being unable to land on forest or
mountains!  Remember what the people said about Black Chocobo's in town (you
may have missed them, but no worries)?  Well they can fly, and they land in
forest!  This means we have to locate the Chocobo Village rumored to exist
north of Toroia, so fly your ship east.  You will see a patch of forest that
is separate from the large sprawling forest near Toroia, so you found the
Chocobo Village.  Again, you can only land near Toroia, so head back there
to put Enterprise down on the ground.

Head north along the mountain range to your west, and when you enter the
Chocobo Village, go talk to a Black Chocobo to take to the air, and head
south for a few spaces, followed by an east setting.  Black Chocobo can not
fly over mountains, so you need to fly through the opening in the mountain
cover on the island to land your Chocobo right at the entrance to the Dark
Elf's cave.  Before you enter, you must remove all metal equipment from your
party, so Cid and Cecil will have to drop off most of their equipment,
Tellah must lose his Gaea armor and Silver Ring, and Yang must drop his
Silver Ring to your Item inventory.  Equip these fellows with any left over
Leather armors you have, and then head into the cave.

With Cid and Cecil (a large part of your offensive punch) out of commission
with their usual power attacks, you will need to fight more cautiously.  If
you face a small amount of enemies, let Tellah and Yang deal with them, but
you should just run from your battles for now.  This walkthrough is going to
leave any out of the way Treasure Chests for the trip out of the cave.

Walk right from the start, go down the branching bridge, and then head right
to take another bridge down.  Head left across another bridge, go up the
right side of the rock formation, go left past the stairs to get a Heal, and
then take the stairs to the next floor.

Head left from the stairs, head up ast the hole to find a bridge to cross,
and then go right to enter a door.  In this room, collect the 500 Gold
Pieces and an Ether1 from the two Treasure Chests, and then exit the room
to head left to find the stairs to the next floor.

Head down to the door you see, and enter to to find a SAVE CIRCLE.  Use a
Tent if necessary, SAVE, and then head back out into the cave.  Head across
the bridge set in front of you, enter the door at the bottom of the rock
formation, and get the Cure2, Cure3, and Life from the three Treasure Chests
before you head back onto the main path.  Head left across the bridge to see
a path between two rock walls, which is where you till walk up to enter the
door there.  Walk straight up upon entering the room to get a Charm Claw
(Equip on ang right away), and then go down and left to the stairs to go to
the next floor.

Head left across the bridge to connect to the bridge going up which is where
you go right across a bridge set to enter a door.  Here is a SAVE CIRCLE for
you to use.  Once you finish there, go left across the bridge set again, and
go up to take you into the door directly above you.  It is a Crystal Room,
and you will find the Dark Elf contained within!  Talk to him, and he declares
you can not have his Crystal because you lack Metallic Weapons to truly hurt
him!

Dark Elf

H.P.: 22000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 0

Although you can win this fight with some creative team work, it will gain
you nothing.  Instead, just attack him as he wipes your party out.

Just as he is about to finish your party off, the scene cuts to Toroia where
Edward sense the danger the party faces!  He starts to leave his bed, but
falls from being too weak after a couple steps, prompting the docter and
nurse to try and stop him.  Edward will insist he has to do it, throws the
two off of him, and then limps to his harp to start playing...

Back in the Crystal Room, the TwinHarp synchronizes the tune exactly, which
causes the Dark Elf to lose his concentration.  This means that he can no
longer hold metallic weight down!  Your team will stand again, be healed,
and then step back so you can equip their best weapon and armors.  Now you
should step forward to round 2 with the Dark Elf!

-----------
Dark Dragon
-----------

H.P.: 3000

Gold: 5000

Exp.: 6000

He will start out in his Dark Elf form, but he will quickly transform into
a more powerful form in the Dark Dragon.  Have your three muscle heads
(Cecil, Yang, and Cid) attack while Tellah casts Virus for attacking, and
Cure spells for healing.  This form has a better command of magic than the
weakened Dark Elf did, so keep your Hit points high.  He also has a brutal
D. Breath attack that removes anywhere from 125 to 250 Hit points per
person.

If you want to win this battle REALLY EASILY, just wait for the
transformation to occur so he is the Dark Dragon, and have Tellah cast Weak.

It should hit the Dark Dragon, causing it's Hit Points to drop below 10
total, making your next attack deadly to it!

The Dark Elf will fade away, and you can claim the Crystal of Earth.  Now
head out of the Crystal Room to start the journey out.


Head right and up around the rock formation to get the Treasure Chest on the
left, which is an Ether2.  Now walk back around the rock formation, walk
down till you see a bridge going down, which you should take.  Cut right
when the bridge turns, and go up the stairs.

Go right to take the door out of this room, and head straight down till you
see a torch, which is where you cut right across a bridge.  Go up around the
rock to go up across a bridge set, and then you can go through the door to
SAVE if you wish before you go right to get off this floor.

Go right, cut down on your first opportunity, and then go left to get an
Ether1 from a Treasure Chest.  Now head right once more, go down on the
first chance you have, and then right again to find the stairs to go up a
floor.

Go down to the bridge, go right till a bridge appears above you, which is
when you should go up across it.  Head left till a bridge is visible, go up
it, and go left to exit the cave.

Get on your Black Chocobo, it will fly back to it's village (they always do
that), and then get another Black Chocobo to fly south to Toroia.  Enter the
Castle, and go straight up till you enter the Eight Cleric's Chamber.  They
will surround you in congratulations and celebrations, but suddenly...

"Looks like you've got the Crystal, Cecil...

Cid: ...Kain!?

Kain: Go outside and get on your Airship.  I'll take you to where Rosa is.



************************************
  Rescuing Rosa!
************************************


The Eight Cleric's will be in complete disarray about what just happened,
but they will give Cecil the Crystal of Earth to use as well as permission
to go after that Treasure in the basement that we ignore earlier.  Head down
through the door, go right, and then head down to the door below you.  Go
down the left staircase, go down, right and then up to talk to the guard.
She will open the secret passage to the Treasures, which are the following:
Cure2, Cure2, Heal, Heal, Ether1, Ether1, Ether2, Ether2, Elixer, Elixer,
1000 Gold Pieces, 1000 Gold Pieces, GreatBow, 20 Fire Arrows, 20 Ice Arrows,
and 10 Lit Arrows.  Once you have finished here, go back into the main hall
to cut to the left door, and go visit Edward.

Edward plays down his role in your great victory, but the whole party lets
him know that he was the deciding factor in the battle.  Tellah forgives
Edward for running off with his daughter as he thinks Edward is a brave man.
Tellah then swears he will avenge Anna for Edward's sake as well, but that
is when poor Edward passes out.  Leave the castle, go into town, use the Inn
if you need to, and then go outside and SAVE.

Keep in mind that until you rescue Rosa, your Airship will not be available
to flying around the worls to any other locations, so to travel to these
places, you have to use Black Chocobo.  This means some areas are
inacessible because of the terrain limits on a Black Chocobo, but you can go
to some locales.

Once you lift into the air, Kain will appear to tell you to follow him, and
he takes you high into the air to come aboard a strcuture in the sky.  When
the party steps foot on the structure however, Kain says that Golbez wants
to meet them, followed by Golbez saying they better hustle to to the top of
the tower to assure Rosa's life!  Keep in mind you can leave, but you will
just land at Toroia again.

Go up and to the left through the narrow passage, and then take the wider
corridor up.  When you reach the top wall, go left to get Fire Armor (Equip
it on Cecil), and then go right to find the door to the floor 2F.

Go down, turn left at first fork, down at second fork, and then go down to
the wall below you.  Walk left till the first path goes up, which you will
take to get a Treasure Chest full of MONSTERS!  After you take the Flame Dog
down with Ice attacks from Tellah and regular attacks from your party, you
will win a Fire Sword for Cecil to equip.  now head back down the hallway,
turn left, and then go up through the door to go to floor 3F.

Head down till you have to choose between up or right paths, and you should
take the right path.  Continue right till you are forced to go up, and then
when you can go up no longer, head left.  Continue on this path to reach the
door to floor 4F.

Head down the path until it cuts right, and you will follow suit.  Continue
right till the fork going up, which you should take.  Start by going to the
right path to enter a door that take you to 6f and a Treasure Chest that
contains a Wizard Robe (Equip Tellah with it).  Go back to 5F, take the
centre fork to go to 6F once more to get an Earth Hammer from a Treasure
Chest for Cid (Equip it for him as that is the best weapon he can use).
Return to 5F again, take the left fork to get to a door that takes you to 6F
where a Posion Claw and a Fire Shield await pick up from Treasure Chests.
Now you should head back to 5F, go back down to the bottom path, and then go
right to find a path going up to another door to 6F.

Go down and then to the left to enter a door where a SAVE CIRCLE awaits you.
Use a Tent (you are pretty beat up after battling your way to this point),
SAVE your game, and then head out the door to the left.  Walk toward the

door above you, when suddenly...

*Girl One appears*

"Welcome to the Tower of Zot!"

*Girl Two appears*

"Glad to see you"

*Girl Three appears*

"We are the minions of Valvalis of the Air"

"I am Sandy!"

"I'm Cindy!"

"And Mindy!"

"We're the Magus Sisters!!  Sorry but your quest will be over here.  Take
 our Delta Attack and farewell!!"

-----        -----        -----
Sandy        Cindy        Mindy
-----        -----        -----

H.P.: 2500   H.P.: 4300   H.P.: 2200

Gold: 4000   Gold: 4000   Gold: 4000

Exp.: 5000   Exp.: 5000   Exp.: 5000

These three are the infamous Magus Sisters, and they all are quite different
from one another.  Sandy is tall and skinny, Cindy is short and stalky, and
Mindy is tiny.  While all three remain in the battle, the Sisters will use
their Delta Attack on your party.  The following bit will look at what each
Sister does with their attacks:

Sandy: Casts Wall on Cindy.

Cindy: Revives her fallen Sisters with Remedy.

Mindy: attacks.

The Sisters will do other actions, but these are the main ones for
individual moves.  After two sets of turns, the Sisters will use their Delta
Attack on you to deal massive damage (be sure to cure any damage you
recieve).

To beat the Sisters easily, pound on Mindy with Cecil, Yang and Cid while
Tellah casts Virus on her.  When she falls, the Sisters are no longer able
to do their Delta Attack, and it will leave Cindy completely undefended from
head on physical attacks.  Once Cindy revives the fallen Mindy, take Mindy
out again quickly, and pound on Cindy once more.  Keep this up till Cindy
falls, and then you can finish off the remaining Sisters with relative ease
(although Sandy does cast an irritating Charm Spell).

Go back to the SAVE CIRCLE room, use a Tent to fill up, unequip Tellah of
his possessions, SAVE, and then head back to the door that the Magus Sisters
were guarding.  You will enter a room where you are required to go up to
find Golbez and Kain!

Cecil will give the Crystal of Earth to Golbez, who will then claim to not
know who she is.  Tellah will choose this moment to rush forward, and engage
Golbez in battle!

Tellah will try Virus, Fire3, Lit3, and Ice3, but these will have little
effect on Golbez.  Tellah will then utters the word Meteo, which has the
party objecting.  Tellah then trades his life for the power to cast Meteo,
and it does hurt Gilbez badly, but does not kill him.

Tellah will fall down, Golbez will try to flee with Kain, but his hold on
Kain was severed by Meteo.  Cecil will try to stop Golbez from leaving, but
he gets blasted as a result.  Golbez has an odd feeling when he goes to kill
Cecil, so he leaves Cecil be for now and takes his leave.

Cecil will regain his feet because Golbez was weakened considerably by
Meteo, and Tellah will get to pass his message of fighting with justice and
not vengance to truly defeat evil.  Tellah will die, and the group will then
check on Kain.

Kain will let Cecil know that he does remember his actions, but Cecil does
not blame him.  Suddenly, they both realize that Rosa is stillin danger,
and they will rush into the next room!  Cecil will pull Rosa off her chair
just before the large iron ball above falls to splinter the chair!  Rosa and
Cecil will share a very friendly embrace while Kain looks away in dismay,
and then admits that he wanted to be close to Rosa (part of the reason he
was kept under the influence of Golbez).  Cecil will convince Kain to join
the group to fight against the evil that held him in slavery.

Once the new party is formed, be sure to equip Rosa and Kain with any
weaponry that might be better than what they have (be sure to give Rosa the
Lit Arrows).  Now walk down a suquare, and you will suddenly hear from the
Fiend of Air!

--------
Valvalis
--------

H.P.: 6000

Gold: 5500

Exp.: 9500

Valvalis will have two forms for you to fight you in.  When she is wrapped
up in her hair and spinning like a whirlwind, you will need to have Kain try
a Jump attack to make her stop.  When she is in a whirlwind, it is extremely
hard to hit her, and when you do, the damage will be less than usual.  When
she is in her normal position, she takes a lot more damage.  She will use
Weak periodically, so Cure whoever lost their Hit Points quickly so you will
not lose them on the next attack.

Have Cecil, Cid and Yang attack all the time (except when required to use a
Cure2 on someone), have Kain jump the whole time, and have Rosa do healing
duties while throwing the odd Aim in the mix.  A battle that rewards
patience as you must wear Valvalis down when she is not in her whirlwind.

Immediately following the battle, Valvalis will get the last laugh in as her
last act was to set the destruction of the Tower of Zot in motion!  Rosa
will then command everyone to grab a hold of her, and she casts Exit!  They
will land in Cecil's Room in Baron, and Kain will then drop a bomshell of
information that changes the whole situation of their quest...



************************************
  To The Underworld
************************************


Kain will reveal that there are not just the four Crystals, but four Dark
Crystals as well!  Kain says that Golbez knew this, and his next goal was to
find these Dark Crystals, which are supposedly located underground.  If
Golbez collects all eight Crystals, the way to the Moon will open (what the
heck does that mean?).  Kain wil then give Cecil the "key" to the entrance
to the Underworld, the Magma Key!

The group does not know where to look, and they know it will take a while
without the Enterprise to help, but Cid reveals he has a remote control on
it which he used to save it from the falling Tower of Zot!  The crew will
then take a rest, and then head outside Baron to find the Enterprise, but
SAVE your game first before heading off into the blue sky.

Head directly south of Baron to happen upon a small island with a town
located by a relatively small mountain range.  Land your ship and head into
town.  You have arrived at Agart, so walk around and talk to the people to
hear some interesting things.  The people speak of relatives of theirs that
lived without sun, the observatory is concerned about one of the two moons
in orbit turning the colour of rubies, how the world has a reverse just like
everything else, and the most interesting piece of info is how the ancestors
of this town came from a northern crater in the mountains that is now
blocked!  It seems we found the area of the entrance to the UnderWorld, but
how do we get there?

There is a lady in the Inn who tells you to return the Magma Key to where it
belongs, and the path to their homeland will open.  When you came into town,
you passed the enshrined old well, and it is claimed that it is bottomless.
Make a trip to the old well, examine it, and then select the Magma Key from
your inventory to throw it down the well.  The ground will start to shake
violently, and a huge earthquake will cause the crater of old to rip open
for passage to the Underworld.  Make a quick trip to the grass patch on the
left of town for a Cure2 from a hidden Treasure Chest, and then exit town to
get into your Airship.

Fly your ship over the crater, and press the A Button to jounrey into the
Underworld!



************************************
  Lali-Ho!
************************************


You will appear on autopilot, and you will be carried to the south end of
the Underworld, when Kain spots the Red Wings and some Tanks fighting a
viscious battle!  Unfortunately, they convene the battle with the Enterprise
in the middle, and despite some expert flying by Cid, the Enterprise
crashes.

Cecil awakens to realize that he was knocked unconcious by the crash.  You
will appear to have landed beside a castle, so the wise idea is to SAVE.
Before you do that however, take away all of Cid's equipment, and then SAVE.
Now enter the castle to try and find out what the situation is down here.

You will quickly learn from the guards that Golbez has been attacking them,
and that King Giott of the Dwarves wants to mett them.  Head straight up
thorugh a couple doors to arive in the King's Room, and you should
immediately go present yourself to King Giott.

After brief introductions, King Giott will reveal that Golbez has already
acquirred two of the four Dark Crystals!  The Dark Crystal in this Palace
remains safe because of the Dwarven Tanks, but he wishes to add your Airship
to their defences.  Cid reveals that the Airship is too badly damaged to
help right now, and without a wrap of silver on the hull, the Airship will
not hold up long over the heat of all the lava.

Cid leaves, promising to return soon, and King Giott reveals that the
Crystal is safely hidden away in the Crystal Room behind his Throne Room.
Yang will then sense someone eavesdropping on the conversation, and someone
hops to look over the wall before hopping left behind the wall!  King Giott
will immediately open the door to the Crystal Room, and your party will rush
right in to look.

The door will lock behind your party, meaning that the Dwarves can not
follow to help, which is followed by some dolls on the floor starting
dancing to an ominous sounding organ tune!  They will position themselves
between your party and the Dark Crystal, and then say:

"We're the Calbrena!  You fools!  You've doomed yourselves!  We're gonna
 getcha!  We'll take this good news as presents to Master Golbez!
 Yip-ho-ho-ho!"

Gold: 500    Gold: 500

Exp.: 1250   Gold: 1250

You will be faced with 3 Cals and 3 Brenas, who will attack you physically
the whole time.  Start off by whacking 2 of the Brena (the ornage coloured
dolls), and then start working on the three Cals in the back row.  Attack
with Cecil and Yang, Jump with Kain, and Rosa will do her usual part time
Cure, part time attack methods.  If you follow this method, you should not
have to face the following enemy.  Be advised that time is also a factor in
this happening...

--------
Calbrena
--------

H.P.: 4600

Gold: 7000

Exp.: 19000

The Calbrena will not only attack you physically (with more power than it's
smaller counterparts), but it will also use attacks like Glance (Charm
Spell).  Keep Cecil and Yang pounding away, have Kain jump like a maniac,
and have Rosa keep the Hit Points high as she hits her Charmed team mates
with an Arrow so they regain their senses.

After the battle, the Calbrena will leave, but not before letting you know
that Golbez knows the location of this Crystal, and he is on his way!
Golbez will show up and taunt the group about how without Tellah, they have
no chance of defeating him!  He will also reveal that when he has acquirred
all the Light Crystals and Dark Crystals together, the Tower of Bab-il will
lead him to the moon!  For finding the third Dark Crystal, Golbez will then
enter battle with you to give you your final reward!

------
Golbez
------

H.P.: 22000

Gold: 11000

Exp.: 20000

A tall task to say the least.  Start by getting Kain into the air as fast as
you can, and have everyone else attack Golbez.  Golbez will then start to
laugh as he casts Hold Gas on your whole party, causing them to be
paralized!  He will then summon Shadow (a large dragon) who immediately
starts using a "Demolish" attack, which he uses to wipe out Yang, Rosa, and
Kain (only if he is on the ground at the time of the attacks).  Golbez is
all ready to Demolish Cecil, but suddenly a D. Mist will appear to wipe out
Shadow and hurt Golbez for around 900 Hit Points!  Golbez will be in shock
at this turn of events, and a mysterious voice will say you can move now to
Cecil as the paralisis is Healed.  This is the point that Rydia will run in
to join her team!

Now that we have a new fight scenario, here is the battle plan!  Have Cecil
attack and have Rydia call Titan.  If you have Kain still, get him to Jump.
Cecil should also be ready to cast Cure2 if Rydia starts to get low on Hit
Points.  The fight will not require you to remove 22000 Hit Points from
Golbez as he seems shaken over the D. Mist incident.  After one Call Magic
attack, Golbez will fall!

The team will celebrate over the defeat of Golbez, and then they thank
Rydia.  Rydia reveals that Leviathan swallowed her and took her to the Land
of the Summoned Monsters.  Rydia will reveal that as she studied there, she
lost the use of White Magic, but came much more deadly with Call and Black
Magics.  She is also a young woman instead of a small child, but that is due
to a different time flow in the monster world.  Rydia will then join the
party officially!

Golbez interupts to proclaim he is not dead, and he uses some magic to turn
into a hand and takes the Crystal before jetting off to leave Cecil and
company in despair.  Giott will reveal in the Throne Room that the last
Crystal is safely tucked away in the Sealed Cave, so Golbez can not get it.
Yang suggests that this is an excellent time to try and regain some Crystals
while Golbez is distracted with the Sealed Cave, and the King authorizes the
use of his Tanks as a distraction so your team can sneak into the Tower of
Bab-il!  When you are ready, go through the secret passage in the basement
of the Castle.


WARNING!  WARNING!

SEVERE CHEAT WARNING!

The following is not for those who want to play the game the way it was
programmed.  If you do not wish to know about how to lessen the time of your
game, please do not read this!  Thank you...

Once the King has stopped speaking, cast Warp while still in the Throne
Room.  The screen will mostly be blcacked out, and your team will appear in
a Crystal Room, with a Crystal sitting there.  Grab the Crystal and leave
the Crystal Room to end up in King Giott's Throne Room.  However, their
Crystal is gone due to Golbez stealing it mere minutes ago, so the only
Crystal it could be is the one from the Sealed Cave!  When you head for the
Sealed Cave in the future, you will only have to set foot inside the cave
for the happenings due to happen to occur!

WARNING!  WARNING!

END SEVERE CHEAT WARNING!


So now you have to explore the castle to find Treasure and to visit the
Dwarf's shops. Give Rydia any improvements you can upon her Armor, head down
out of the Throne Room, go left to find some stairs leading up one floor.
Go to the Item Shop to purchase some Life and Cure2s, followed by selling
all the excess Weapons and Armors you have.  Now revive your teammates who
are down, take the 1000 Gold Pieces in the pot to your left, and stay at the
Inn to refill your Hit Points and Magic Points.

Now head down the stairs to your right, walk right past everything on this
floor to the stairs on the far side of the room.  Go to the Wepaons counter
to get Kain a Flame Spear and Rosa about 20 to 40 Dark Arrows to improve her
offensive punch (just remember that in mid-battle Rosa can switch to
whatever type of Arrow she wishes to use).  Now you should buy two sets of
Wizard Hats, Wizard Robes, and Rune Rings for Rosa and Rydia.  Equip that
stuff on those two, sell your excess Armors and Weapons, and then buy some
Flame Armors for Kain and Cecil if you want to (there is another place to
buy for them in th enot so distant future however).

Once you have finished with your spending spree, head up the stairs to your
right to enter the Right Tower, which has Treasures littered through out it.
Get the Dwarf Axe on the third floor, and then head for the fifth floor.
Go right to get the Ether2 from the Treasure Chest, then up to get a
Strength Ring (Equip it on Yang), then left to get an Ether1, and finally
down to get an Elixer.  Now head back down to the third floor once more,
walk straight down from the stairs, and go out the door.

Head down, left, and then up to enter the Left Tower.  Go up to the fourth
floor, walk right intot he small cubby, walk down behind the wall, and then
left to get 500 Gold Pieces from a pot.  Now head up to the fifth floor,
where you have to walk behind the walls on hidden paths.  Start by walking
left for a Cure2, walk two psots right, walk up, and then left.  Walk up
till you stop, walk right one square, walk up one square, right three
squares, up one square, right four squares, down three squares, and then
go one square left to get an Elixer.  Go down one square, right four
squares, down three squares, turn left, grab the Ether1, and then down one
more square.  Head left four squares, down three squares, followed by left
one square to get a Black Belt Gi for Yang to Equip.

Now you should wander back around the hidden paths on this floor, go down to
the third floor, and then take the stairs located there to arrive back near
the Item Shop and Inn area.  Head down a floor by using the stairs to the
right of the Inn desk, head right past the three Dwarves on this floor, look
in all the pots you can to find three Carrots, and then go to the Dwarf
guarding the secret passage to get him to open it.

Head up and to the left behind the wall to enter, where you should head left
until you see two guards to walk between going down.  Turn right at the
first opportunity to go get three Cabins from three Treasure Chests, and
then head left and then down.  Go left to take the stairs to arrive in the
Dwarf Base, where you hear that Rubicant, the FIend of Fire remains in the
Tower of bab-il while Golbez is away!  Head left to find a door leading out,
and before you leave, a Dwarf will allow you to take a drink of the pot of
life, which restores both hit Points and Magic Points!  Head out the stairs
below to start your trek to the Tower of Bab-il.

Head west from the cave mouth until the lava field forces you to go on a
north-west route, followed by cutting straight west when presented with a
choice of west and north.  Go north when the lava fields cut you off once
more, and take the left fork when the lava splits the land into two parts.
Continue north until you have to go through a narrow place in the mountains,
followed by going north once more to see the Dwarf Tanks.  They will start
to blast the Tower of Bab-il as you approach, so get yourself to the base of
the Tower, SAVE your game, and then enter the famed Tower of Bab-il...

Walk up the bridge and onto the floor tiles till you arrive at a crossroads
where you should head left to find 10 Ice Arrows in a Treasure Chest.  Go
down to get another 10 Ice Arrows, followed by going up and turning right to
cross the path you came up on.  Go up past the wall to go down the windy
path for an Ether1.  Head back tot he main path, and go up to the door to

Go down till the narrow bridge to your right appears, which you cross, and
then head up the winding path above you to get to a Treasure Chest with 2000
Gold Pieces.  Head down the path, go right past the opening above you (can
not do anything there right now), and then head up the right path.  Take the
right to go down the path to a Treasure Chest with a Cure2.  Go up again,
get back onto the main path, and then go up to make it to 6F.

Head left to go through a door to 7F.

Go right from the door, go down and left to enter a door, where a SAVE
CIRCLE awaits you.  After you do the usual, head back out to the main area,
go left, and then head down across a birdge.  Go left to get an Ether2 from
a Treasure Chest, and walk right and up to go through the door to 8F.

Go down and leftto find a bridge, which you should cross, and then continue
straight up to see Dr. Lugae and Rubicant talking.  Rubicant is off
somewhere after he destroyed Eblan, and he is leaving Dr. Lugae in charge of
the Tower of Bab-il.  Lugae will becom flustered at the sight of your party,
and he and his "child" Balnab will enter battle against you!

After some initial problems with Balnab being unable to move and attacking
his creator, Balnab will turn to attacking your party with some ferocity.
Dr. Lugae will not do a whole lot in this battle.  Attack Balnab with Cecil
and Yang, Jump with Kain against Dr. Lugae, Rydia should cast a second level
elemental spell against the good docter (Ice2, Lit2, Fire2), and Rosa should
Aim at Lugae when no Curing is required.  If you defeat Balnab first, you
will have to fight...

Balnab-Z is a slgihtly stronger version of Balnab (which is being operated
by Dr. Lugae).  Cecil and Yang should attack, Kain should Jump, Rydia should
use second level elemental spells (Ice2, Lit2, Fire2), and Rosa should Cure
her teammates the whole time.

After the battle ends, Dr. Lugae says he will break out his true strength,
which starts the real Boss Fight!

Dr. Lugae will quickly transform into a horrific metallic skeletal monster
right before your very eyes!  He will use a Poison Spell to cause minimal
damage to your team, but it will also cause your whole team to be poisoned
(they will drop Hit Points every so often).  He will also attempt to use
Gas, which is a Sleep spell (it rarely works however).  One of his offensive
attack is Laser (as well as the less powerful Beam), which is a deadly
attack for lower Hit Point members of your team like Rydia and Rosa (it does
somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 to 800 damage).  Dr Lugae also uses
Emission, a low power fire attack, which he usually follows up with Heal on
all your teammates (curing all the status effects he inflicts upon you).
Cecil and Yang should attack, Kain should Jump, Rydia should use second
level elemental spells (Ice2, Lit2, Fire2), and Rosa should Cure her
teammates the whole time.  If someone falls down, let Rosa bring them back
with Life1, and have the next person in line use a Cure2 on her (Yang, Kain,
Rydia) or cast Cure2 (Cecil).

You will win the Tower Key from Dr. Lugae, but he will reveal that Rubicant
moved the Crystals to the Upper World portion of the Tower of Bab-il!  Dr.
Lugae will also reveal that his Super Cannon is about ready to annihalate
the Dwarves!  Remember that locked door we passed earlier in the Tower?
Behind it is the control room for the Super Cannon.

Head down across the bridge, head up and right to get to the door to 7F,
and then head down.  Go left to cross the bridge, go up and left to the
door on 6F, and then head right to the door to 5F.  Go down, followed by
going left, and then go up across the long bridge to come to the locked
door, where you will use the Tower Key to gain entry.  Before you go in,
take all of Yang's equipment off.

The operators are taking great glee in preparing to blow the Dwarves away,
but you and your teammates will speak about their objections.  A fight will
ensue

Dark Imp

H.P: 199

Gold: 45

Attack these guys to finish them off quickly, and they should not even get
an attack in on your team (they use physical attacks only).

The enemies will respond by locking the controls through destroying the
control panel as they die, which makes your party fret about what to do.
Yang will step forward, and when Cecil and company try to stop him, he
knocks them out the door as he locks it behind them.  Yang will tell Cecil
to tell his wife that he loves her, and then while the gang pleads to get
inside the Cannon self destructs.

You are left with no choice except to go back to the entrance, so head down
the bridge, go left to the left wall, and then head up to the door to go to
4F.  Go right across the narrow path, go down to the next narrow path where
you go left across it, and then go down to take the door on the right to 3F.
Go left and up along the path, followed by right and down to come down
beside a door, which you will take to 2F.  Go down past the door on the
right, go left past the door, and then go up to find the door to 1F.  Walk
straight down to start across the bridge, when suddenly Golbez will show up
and say he has had enough of folling around with Cecil and everyone, so he
starts to disenegrate the bridge from behind you, causing you to fall fast
towards the ground...


************************************
  Going out and Back In
************************************


As you are falling to certain death, Cid and the Enterprise make the save!
Cid will learn of Yang's unfortunate loss, and he will meet Rydia.  All of a
sudden, he will see the Red Wings come out to get him.  Cid is unable to
shake them as the enemy appears to have modified the Red Wings to a level
that not even Cid has out designed yet!  After being chased around the
underground, Cid will realize the engines are not going to hold, and gets
Cecil to take the controls.  Cid decides he is going to plug the hole
between the over world and the underworld with a bomb, and he hopes that
Cecil and Rosa have a wonderful life.  He then tells Cecil to go visit his
workers at Baron, and then as the Enterprise flies out of the hole, Cid
makes an eloquent speech as he blows the bomb:

"Golbez!  I'll show you the great fire works of Cid, the Master Engineer!"

With that, the Enterprise will fly out of the hole, and the hole closes up
behind them!  After a brief time of thought on Cid, Cecil decides they must
head toward Baron.

Go north to arrive at Baron.  Head into the castle when you arrive, going up
through the first two sets of doors to get inside the inner walls.  Go right
to the stairs, go across the abttlements to the next stairs, and then go
down to open the the door via the secret switch.  Go through the secret
passage to get two of each of the following: Cure2, Ether1, and Life.  Go
back to the mian hall, go down out the door, and speak to the blue wearing
fellows, as they are Cid's workers.

The two workers will then get to work on attaching a hook  to the
Enterprise, which has one worker being rather imcompentent.  Once they
finish their job, you will learn that this hook will allow your team to use
the Enterprise to air lift the Hovercraft to anywhere they wish to drop
(including near Eblan so you casn go through the cave there to the Tower of
Bab-il!

Head north to find Damycan, and then head east towards Mount Hobs, where you
can find the Hovercraft just where you left it.  You might also consider
going to Fabul to tell Yang's Wife about the occurences in the Tower of
Bab-il.  She says that her husband has not yet perished, despite the fact
that the Super Cannon room blew up quite convincingly.

You may also recall a cave below Silvera that appeared to have no lnading
spots for an Airship, so take the Hovercraft south with you till you see
Silvera, where you frop the Hovercraft and land.  Take the Hovercraft across
the shallows to the cave and enter to find a man who has a "funny ore".
However, he will only talk to you if you have a tail for him (and at this
point you do not).  So it appears that you should keep an eye out for tails
if you want to get some of the "funny ore".

Now that you have toured around a bit, head south to find Mount Ordeals,

head east to find the Tower of Bab-il, and you have the option of going into
the cave, ro going into Eblan itself.  Eblan is first on our list to go to.

Head straight through the gate to continue up to the double doors, which you
should enter.  Go up through the room, grab the Cure2 from the Treasure
Chest on the right, and then go up the stairs.  Just go through this room,
and go to the top left of the Throne Room to walk left through the wall to
a stairway going down.  Grab the Heal and Cure2 from the Treasure Chests, go
back up the stairs, and head to the right of the Throne Room to go down some
stairs through the secret passage to get Cure2, Cabin, and Life from the
three Treasure Chests.  Now you should head back outside into the courtyard.

Go left at first opportunity to find your way into the Left Tower.  Go up
the stairs in front of you, grab the Cure2 from one of the pots on the
floor, and then walk down between the split in the pots near the bottom of
the room, followed by going right to find 2000 Gold Pieces and 10 Mute
Arrows (give them to Rosa).  Go back out into the main area of the floor,
go left and then down towards the wall to find a transport to go through to
get an Ether1.  Now walk back onto the transporter to get back to the floor
above, where you should head back down the stairs in the middle of the room.
Head out of the Left Tower, go right across the battlements to go find the
Right Tower.

Walk up as far as you can inside, turn left to go behind the top-left
pillar, walk left, walk up one square, walk left, walk down, and then walk
right to find 600 Gold Pieces in the Treasure Chest.  Maneuver back into the
main area of the floor, and head up the stairs.  Open the switch on the
right, walk down and left around the stairs, and then go up and then to the
left to get an Ether1 and a Cure2 from the two Treasure Chests.  Now head
right to get a Life Potion from the pot on the right, and then grab the
Treasure Chest below the hole to find a Cabin.  If you want to fight some
incredibly tough MONSTERS, go right through the wall to the right of the
pots to get to the Treasure Chest protected by the hole to enter a battle!

You will face one Lamis and two Black Cats.  Eliminate the Black Cats first
as they are the more dangerous threat with their powerful physical attacks
(but be wary of their counter attack which is a Hold attack).  The Lamia can
be annoying when she uses Charm on your people.  Not a difficult battle, but
their attacks can be quite annoying.

You will win a Drain Spear for Kain (useful if used properly).  Now go drop
down the hole to get 800 Gold Pieces from a Treasure Chest, and then walk
down until you fall through another hole to land in the Eblan Basement.  Go
down to find two Ether1's in two Treasure Chests on the left, and then go
open the Treasure Chest on the right for a rather difficult MONSTER find if
you dare to.

Mad Ogre
--------

H.P.: 1700

Gold: 270

Exp,: 2370

You will fight around three of the Mad Ogres, which are offensive
powerhouses.  Have Cecil attack and use Cure2 occasionally, have Kain Jump,
have Rydia cast Virus once on the enemies (so they lose Hit Points
continually despite only being damaged for 1 Hit Point) which should be
followed by Rydia using items to Cure her teammates (magic does not damage
these guys), and have Rosa keep the Hit Points as high as possible but do
not be afraid to use her Aim so she can damage the enemies with her Arrows
(Mute Arrows work extremely well).

When you win the battle, take your Elixer, and head out of the basement via
the stairs below.  Now you should get in your Airship, fly to a town with an
Inn, fill up, and then come back to Eblan to get in the Hovercraft.  Start
across the shallows from Eblan Castle, and make your way west until you have
to cut north to arrive at the entrance Cave Eblana.  SAVE your game, and
then enter to start your journey back to the Tower of Bab-il.

Head right off the start to go through a secret passage to get a Shuriken,
and then go right through another secret passage to find another Treasure
Chest which has a Heal.  Now go left to go back one chamber, go down the
ladder to the water, and then go right through the secret passage.  Go down
the water to find a ladder leading up to dry land, and then go down to get
the 1200 Gold Pieces contained within the Treasure Chest.  Now head left
across the bridge above you, then down across the bridge below you, and then
walk left once more to find the stairs to the next level of the cave.

B2F is home to the remaining survivors of the people of Eblana, after
Rubicant's forces had overrun their home castle.  Go into the first door you
come across to find the Inn and Item Shop, the second door has Weapon and
Armor for sale (buy Black Robe for Ryida, Ice Armor for Cecil/Kain, and 30
Poison Arrows for Rosa), and the third door contains the infirmary (it has
two Cure1's waiting in pots for you to find).  You will learn that the Prince
of Eblana has gone ahead of the main forces to try and find a way to get at
Rubicant (by tunneling to the Tower of Bab-il so he can recover his parents)!
Head down the stairs to level B3F when you are all stocked and ready to go.

Grab the Ether1 from the Treasure Chest (despite the fact both monsters and
the Eblan people have been wandering through here recently), and then go up
the ladder set to find a Tent in a Treasure Chest.  Talk to the guard on the
ground to discover that the Prince went off by himself, and then take the
secret passage below you down to find a Cure2 from a Treasure Chest, after
which you go though the secret passage again and down the stairs to the
other level of the cave.

Go up to learn that the fallen soldier hopes you can stop the Prince, and
then turn right to go up the ladder above you to get a Cure3 from the
Treasure Chest on the ledge.  Head down again until you see a secret passage
in the wall to your right, which you will take to get another Shuriken.  Go
through the secret passage again, go down to talk to the Soldier to learn
that the Prince is going after Rubicant (although we knew that previously),
and then up the stairs to go back to the previous level of the cave.

Go through the secret passage on your right to get two Elixers, go back
through the secret passage, and then open the three Treasure Chests below
you to get two Cure2s and a Cabin.  Walk down to find a soldier who tells
you of the Prince's short temper, and then go down, followed by going left to
get 800 Gold Pieces from a Treasure Chest.  Head right to get 850 Gold
Pieces, and 2 Lives from the three Treasure Chests, followed by moving up
the path and ladders to reach the stairs to the other level if the cave.

Go right to enter the door to find a SAVE CIRCLE, but go past it to enter a
secret passage on the right to find MONSTERS!

Staleman

H.P.: 2000

Gold: 890

Exp.: 2100

You face two Stalemen here, and they have some powerful physical attacks,
and those hits can sometimes cause your party member to fall asleep.  Since
the enemy is weak against Ice, let Kain Jump with his Blizzard Spear to kill
one himself, and have Cecil attack and Rydia cast Ice2 to kill the other.
Rosa is nothing mroe than a spectator in this fight.

You will win a Drain Sword (very useful if used properly), and then head
through the passage tot he left, use a Tent to recover your Hit Points and
Magic Points, and then SAVE before exiting the room.

Walk left to find a ladder which goes up to a Treasure Chest that contains a
Life Potion, and then go back towards the door, but go up instead of back to
the door.  You will then come across Rubicant, and a person who can only be
the Prince of Eblan!  The Prince reveals his name as Edge, and he will
quickly go after Rubicant in battle!  After Edge futily attacks, Rubicant
will use a very powerful spell called Glare to knock Edge down.  Rubicant
will challenge Edge to try again once Edge is more powerful.

Cecil and company will rush forward to see if Edge is alright, to which he
replies he does not need them.  Everyone will start arguing with him, and
then Rydia will plead for some sanity.  She says they have lost friends on
this fight (Tellah, Yang, and Cid), and this will convince Edge to join the
party to fight against Rubicant!

Go down to enter the secret passage below to get the Ether2, and then head up
through the stairs to arrive at...



************************************
  Tower of Bab-Il Revisited
************************************

Head up the walkway to the very top it, and as Cecil wonders how they will
get in due to the wall being in the way, Edge will hop the entire group

through the wall to the inside.  Go up to the left to get a Cure3 from the
Treasure Chest, followed by going down and then left.  Once you reach the
left wall, head down the winding path, turn right to walk past the door on
the far side of the room, so you can go up the narrow path to get a Cure3.
Now go back down to go through the door to go to floor B2F.

Head rihgt from the door to arrive at a turn to go up, and then go left till
you see a bridge belwo you, which you should cross.  Open the Treasure Chest
to find MONSTERS!

(Mute Arrows work extremely well).

An Ogre Axe is your reward, which is quite powerful (not to mention worth a
LOT of Gold Pieces).  Head back across the bridge again, turn left, and then
head down when the path turns.  You will arrive at the door that takes you
to B3F.

Head across the bridge belwo you, turn right to walk past the door, and then
go up thebridge to turn right to get 2000 Gold Pieces from the Treasure
Chest.  No go left again to go through the door to B4F.

Start off tot he right when you appear, then go up the narrow path to arrive
at a wall where you nedd to turn left.  Head up the path when it turns that
way, and then left before cutting across the narrow path.  Walking down to
take  the fork to the right will yield a Middle Sword (Equip it on Edge),
and then take off to the left, followed by going up to get to B3F.

Go right past the wall, continue right past the bridge leading down, and
enter the door you come to to find a SAVE CIRCLE.  Use a Tent/Cabin to fill
your Hit Points and Magic Points, SAVE, and then head out the door to go
right to go through the door there to go to B4F where you cut left to go
through the door there to go to B5F.

Take the left path down, where you will walk left past the bridge above you
to take the path leading off the screen to find a Treasure Chest with an
incredible 82000 Gold Pieces inside!  Go back doqn the long narrow path, go
right to find the bridge again, and set off across it to see the King and
Queen of Eblan appear out of nowhere!

After a very brief reunion with his parents, Edge will be asked by his
parent's to join them... IN THE DARK WORLD!!!

Although Edge's parents have been horribly mutated, Edge will still try and
reason with them.  This fight does not require any attacks from your side,
so just use regular attacks to conserve Magic Points, and be sure to not let
anyone swoon.  After a while, Edge's parents will realize what they have
become, and they will then banish themselves from this world to Hades
(despite Edge pleading for an alternative).


At this point Rubicant will show up, and he will be quite upset with Lugae
who altered the King and Queen of Eblan into such terrible creatures.  Edge
wants to fight Rubicant, but Rubicant says that his emotions keep Edge from
achieving his ultimate skills, to which Edge releases his massive anger to
learn Flood and Blitz for his Ninja abilites!  Rubicant will cure your party
to full, and then the battle with the lone remaining Elemental Fiend can
commence!

As you might expect, Rubicant is weak against Ice/Water attacks, so they are
excellent ways to bring him down quickly.  However, when his cloak is
closed, Ice Spells will heal him.  When his cloak is closed, hold off on Ice
Spells (as well as the Shiva Call spell) and use regular attacks.

Rubicant uses an incredibly powerful magic spell by the name of Glare which
does over 1000 Hit Points of damage easily (Revive/Cure the victim).
Rubicant will also use Fire2 on the whole party (it will do about 100 to 150
Hit Point damage to each member).  To beat this monster easily, have Cecil
attack, Kain Jump, Edge Dart extra swords and Spears (as well as Flood with
his Ninja ability), Rydia should Call Shiva, and Rosa will be the Curing and
Reviving member of the team.  Do not be afraid to use a Life on a fallen
member with someone else so Rosa can then Cure them back to full health
right after.

Rubicant will admit his respect for your team, and he now understands why
Golbez has struggled against Cecil and company.  He will then disapear, and
you will be rid of the Four Fiends of the Elements!

Edge will be proud he avenged his parents, and then the back-up will arrive
from the Eblan forces.  Edge will learn that Golbez was the real power
behind Rubicant, so he will vow to get Golbez.  His Chamblerlain is put in
charge of rebuilding their ravaged castle to the former glory it once was.

Once the Eblan warriors leave, Cure your wounds, and head through the door
above to arrive in the Crystal Room with the seven missing Crystals!  Head
up to collect the prizes, but the floor will suddenly open up underneath
your party as they fall to the underground portion of the Tower of Babil!

Go up to grab a Cure2 from a Treasure Chest, and then head down to find a
door leading to 7F.  Head up a diagonal path going up and right to find the
door to 6F.

Head right and then down til the floor opens up, whee you should head right
to find a bridge.  Go up across the bridge to find a Cure2 in the Treasure
Chest, and then go down the bridge, followed by turning left to walk until
you find a bridge to cross to enter the door above!

You will enter a docking area, and Edge decides that this Airship would be
great for your party to... ahem... "borrow".  Edge christens it "Falcon",
and the party will then take flight from the ground...



************************************
  The Sealed Cave
************************************


Since the new Airship does not have the Silver lining on it's hull like the
Enterprise does, you can not fly over the lava.  Head on a south-east route
to arrive at King Giott's Dwarf Castle.  Land the Airship, and head inside.

Walk straight up through the castle to go through a couple doors until you
arrive in the King's Room.  Go to Giott to report that you were
unsuccessful, which Giott replies that Golbez is trying to force his way
into the Sealed Cave.  King Giott will then charge you to go into the cave
to retrieve the Crystal before Golbez can.  Giott will then get the Luca Key
from his daughter Luca so your party can enter the Sealed Cave.

You still have a problem that you can not fly over the lava, but the only
person you knew who could do such a thing was Cid (and he has not been seen
since he bombed the crater closed).  Head out of the Throne Room, turn left
to go to the next floor where the Inn and Item Shop are (stay the night and
pick up supplies for your journey to the Sealed Cave).  Now walk to the
stairs to the right of the Inn desk, go right, and enter the first door you
see.  Inside is the infirmary, and one of the beds will be occupied by Cid!

Cid will come awake to ask how things are going, to which he learns that
Golbez has nearly succeeded in getting the last Crystal.  Cid also learns
that altough the team has acquirred a new Airship in the Falcon, they can
not fly over Magma, so he is now ready to do his part!  He heads off to the
Falcon despite objections from the Docters, and then Cid hauls the same two
Doctors off to help work on the Airship!  He will also get Edge to help,
and it will be completed successfully.  However, the activity will have
tired Cid out as he is not completely recovered from his heroic act with the
Enterprise earlier in the adventure.

Now that you can fly over Magma, take the Falcon into the air to cruise all
around the Underground to see what there is to investigate.  You will see
three caves, a small house, and another town to go to.  Land outside the
other town to go in and see what it has to offer.  Go south-west until you
see a cave enclosed by mountains and a town to the south-east of it.  Land
near the town and head inside.

The town's name is Tomra, and you should head left to the Item Shop if you

need supplies still, and then head up to the Weapon and Armor Shops.  Buy
30 Mute Arrows for Rosa, a Middle Sword for Edge, and a Chain Whip for Rydia
from the Weapon Shop.  In the Armor Shop, buy a Tiara (Rosa), three Diamond
Rings (Edge, Rosa, and Rydia), and then two of each of the Diamond Armors
(Cecil and Kain).  Then sell your excess Items (leave the Swords for Edge to
Dart at enemies).

Now head out into town once more to go to the top left corner of town to
raid the Treasure Chests and pots for Gold Pieces and Cure2's.  Now you are
ready to head into the Sealed Cave.

Get into your Airship, fly to the cave in the north-west, land near the
entrance, SAVE your game, and then get mentally ready to step foot inside.
Now, there are a few ways to go about doing the Sealed Cave.  One method is
to empty the entire cave of as much Treasure (up to all of it) as you wish
to.  Another method is to just go through the cave as fast as possible,
dealing with as few of the dangers present as possible while collecting the
Treasure Chests in the open as well as the powerful Treasure (if you wish to).
The third method is to use the cheat method mentioned earlier to attain the
Crystal within.  The walkthrough will list these methods in the order of:
1) every Treasure being collected, 2) fast path through, and 3) the cheat
method.  Once you have done your Method, go to the next section of the
walkthrough for more assistance on your journey.

Also note that I will list the Trap Door stats only once per method to
conserve space as you fight more than few of each (plus after a couple you
will know what the Trap Doors have in store for you).

METHOD ONE (getting everything)

Walk forward to hit a door that will not budge, and when you examine it, you
should use the Luca Key to break the seal.  now step inside.

Head to the right and then down to find a rope strung across the chasm.  Go
left and then down to go examine the locked door to discover that it can and
will attack you!

TRAP DOOR
---------

H.P.: 5000

Gold: 4500

Exp.: 31100

Trap Doors are incredibly mean fights as they have one attack that has two
parts: Search (targets a team member), and then Disrupt (kills your
character off immediately).  This is all that a Trap Door does, which is
extremely hard on your Magic Points for Life1 spells and your Life Potions.
Hit the Trap Door with everything you have, and if you do it fast enough,
you will kill it.  However, if you fail in this endeavour, the Trap Door
will morph into some other monster which you must then kill.

Enter the door following the fight to find a Long Sword for Edge and an
Ether1.  Now head back out the door, go down to get a Life Potion from the,
and then head up and left to find another rope across the chasm in front of
you.  The door to the elft will need to be examined and then fought as it is
a Trap Door.

Once inside the door, grab the Cure2 from the Treasure Chest, followed by
fighting the two Trap Doors to your right (only if you want the experience
points as the rooms behind them are empty).  Go right to get the Ether1 from
the Treasure Chest, and then head down to go down the stairs to the next
section of the Sealed Cave.

Head down across the rope below you, go right to get a Life Potion, and then

go left to go across the rope once more.  Head right across the bridge to
grab another Life Potion from another Treasure Chest, followed by heading up
the narrow rock ledge to fight a Trap Door (for experience points only as

the room it guards is empty).  Head left to fight the next Trap Door to get
a most precious Treasure: the Light Sword!  Give this to Cecil to increase
his attack by a very large amount.  Head back out the door to go left to
fight yet another Trap Door to gain access to a room where three Treasure
Chests await with a Ninja Star, an Elixer, and 5000 Gold Pieces.  Once back
in the main cave area, battle the Trap Door to the left for experience
points only.  The next Trap Door should be killed to find a SAVE CIRCLE
where you should definitely use a Tent or Cabin to recover Hit Points and
Magic Points, SAVE your game, and then head out into the main cave area
again.  Kill the Trap Door to your left, grab the Long Sword and Ninja
Helmet (both for Edge), and then head down to find another Trap Door. Once
it is gone you will go inside to find an Ether1 as you go to the next area
of the cave.

Grab the Life and Cure2 from the two Treasure Chests on the right, and then
fight the Trap Door on the left side of the room for experience points
purposes only.  Head through the opening in the bottom of the room to go to
the next area of the cave.

B3F opens with a bridge for you to cross, followed by around the hole by
going on the top half of the path.  Go right past the rock formation (over
the top of it) to get a Life Potion, and then go around the rock formation
to fight a Trap Door for experience points purposes only.  Now go left to
take   the rope down to the bottom half of this cave area, and then go right
to fight a Trap Door, grab the Ether2 and Cure3 from the Treasure Chests
inside, and then go left ot go up and around the rock formation to go down
the stairs to find a SAVE CIRCLE.  Use a Tent/Cabin, SAVE your game, and
then head down through the bottom of the room to go to the next cave area.

Go right and then down around the large hole in the middle of the room,
followed by going left and then up around the rock formation to take the
stairs to the next area of the cave.


Go right and then down around the large hole in the middle of the room,
followed by going left and then up around the rock formation to take the
stairs to the next area of the cave.

Go up around the torches, across the bridge, and then fight a Trap Door.
Once it is defeated, recover your Hit Points with items and step foot inside
the door.  You will find the lone remaining Dark Crystal, so grab it right
away!  Step back outside the door to hear a loud and ominous rumbling!

Cecil: The wall!

Rydia: It's moving!

Kain: They set the trap to guard the Crystal!

Edge: Let's destroy the trap, then!

EVILWALL

H.P.: 19000

Gold: 8000

Exp.: 23000

The EvilWall is a slowly advancing menace that will attack with the
following methods: physical attacks, Petrify (if used on one team member
enough, they will solidify into a statue), and once it draws near enough it
will use Crush (a spell that instant kills whoever recieves the casting of
it).  The EvilWall will start off with a couple pre-emptive physical
attacks, and then following that it will continue physical attacks while
mixing in Petrify spells.  Have Cecil attack, Kain Jump, Edge attack and/or
throw Swords/Ninja Stars, Rydia cast Virus, and Rosa should be sure that no
one drops too low on Hit Points.  If the EvilWall reaches the point where it
is close enough to use Crush, you had better hope it is near enough to death
to be killed quickly.

Rydia: We did it!

Edge: A petty trap!

Head down across the bridge, through the torches, and then into the stairs
to go the next cave area.  Head down to the right, go right and then up to
the top of the cave area to have to go left to use the door to exit the
area.  SAVE your game in the SAVE CIRCLE, and then continue your journey
through stairs above you.

Go down and to the right to find a rope stretched across the big chasm, so
grab it to cross, and then head left to cross a bridge, followed by going
through the door.  Head left around the rock formation to go up the stairs
(not through the door) to find another room, where you have to go up, right,
and then down to enter the next area of the cave.

Go up the narrow rock ledge until you see doors in the north wall of the
cave area, which is when you will turn right to go until you are forced to
turn downward.  Go left across the bridge to go up the stairs to a room
where you have to go up, then left when the rock wall on the left stops, and
then cut down when you see the second door above you to find the next cave
area.

Go down the rope below you, turn right and conitnue until you find a rope,
which you should use to cross the chasm.  Walk around the rock formation,
remove all of Kain's equipment, and then go through the door.

Walk down between the two white poles to suddenly see the room darken...

Cecil: What?

"Kain...  Return to me, Kain...  Come back to me with the Crystal..."

Cecil: Golbez!  Kain!

Rosa: Get ahold of yourself!

Kain: I'm... all right.  I am no longer under his control!

*Kain steps forward and hits Cecil hard*

Cecil: Ugh!

*Lost the Dark Crystal!*

*Kain walks away with the Dark Crystal for Golbez, but pauses at the cave
 entrance.*

Edge: You wretch!

Rosa: Kain!  What are you doing!?

Golbez: I've been waiting for this moment!  Now the Tower of Bab-il can be
        reactivated!  The way to the Moon will open!  Come Kain!

Cecil: Come on Kain!  Wake up!

Kain: All the Crystals are gathered now!  The way to the Moon will open!


Edge: Wait!

*Kain leaves*

Golbez: Ha Ha Ha!

Cecil: Kain...

Edge: Oh my...!

METHOD TWO (fast track through)

Walk forward to hit a door that will not budge, and when you examine it, you
should use the Luca Key to break the seal.  Now step inside.

Head to the right and then down to find a rope strung across the chasm.  Go
left and then down to get a Life Potion from a Treasure Chest.  Go up and
left to find another rope across the chasm in front of you.  The door to the
left will need to be examined and then fought as it is a Trap Door.

Head down across the rope below you, go right to get a Life Potion, and then
go left to go across the rope once more.  Head right across the bridge to
grab another Life Potion from another Treasure Chest, followed by heading up
the narrow rock ledge, and then go left to battle a Trap Door.  Once you do
this, go inside to get the great Light Sword for Cecil (increases his attack
by a large amount).  Once you have this, go left three doors to fight a Trap
Door so you can gain access to a SAVE CIRCLE.  Use Tent/Cabin. SAVE your
game, and then head left followed by going down to fight another Trap Door.
Once it is gone you will go inside to find an Ether1 as you go to the next
area of the cave.

Grab the Life and Cure2 from the two Treasure Chests on the right, and then

next cave area.

Go right and then down around the large hole in the middle of the room,

Walk down between the two white poles to suddenly see the room darken.
Golbez wil then re-assert control of Kain, and then take the final Dark
Crystal!

METHOD THREE (the cheating way)

WARNING!  WARNING!

SEVERE CHEAT WARNING!

The following is not for those who want to play the game the way it was
programmed.  If you do not wish to know about how to lessen the time of your
game, please do not read this!  Thank you...

If you did the "Warp Tick" in King Giott's Throne Room after Rydia rejoined
your crew and helped to banish Golbez from the Crystal Room.  You will enter
the cave, and you should immediately remove all of Kain's equipment, and
then walk up between the two white poles to have the room suddenly darken.
Golbez wil then re-assert control of Kain, and then take the final Dark
Crystal!

WARNING!  WARNING!

END SEVERE CHEAT WARNING!

************************************
  The Sealed Cave Aftermath
************************************


Now you should go back outside the Sealed Cave to get into your Airship.
Head to Dwarf Castle to talk to King Giott to tell him that your party

failed.  King Giott fears that they are doomed, unless the Legend of the Big
Whale comes true.  It starts the same as the Mysidian Legend, and when King
Giott learns that the town of Mysidia truly exists, he knows it must be ready
to come true!  However, the crater is closed up, and the Tower of Bab-il is
way too heavily fortified now that Golbez has repowered it with all eight
Crystals, so how to get up to the overworld?

"Let me take care of it!"

Cid once again for yet another Airship modification to do, which is a large
drill attached to the Falcon.  Cid will get three Dwarves, Cecil, and Edge
to help with the work, but after it is completed, Cid will fall down!  The
group will then say their goodbyes for now, and they tell Cid to rest well.
This will now leave you open to go straight to the Moon (skip to the next
four sections of the walkthrough to do this), or you can complete some
Sidequests first (these are in the next four sections and are completely
optional).

You should now have some spells for Rosa like Float and Wall which will
allow an easier time doing some sidequests.  The next four section of the
walkthrough are totally optional to do, but you will end up with better
Wepaons, Armors, Calls, and Items than if you skip the following four
sections.  Read on to see how the various sidequests available to be done in
the next four sections!



************************************
  Cave of Summoned Monsters             (SIDE-QUEST)
************************************


To find the cave, go into the western half of the underground to look for a
small island in the middle of the lava with a small mountain with a cave
mouth.  SAVE your game, and enter the cave.

Rydia will tell you she came through here on her way back from the land of
the Summoned Monsters, and that if they request help, they just recieve it.
Cast Float on your team to avoid the damage spots on the floor (they remove
fifty Hit Points from every team member, lowering them as it goes down to
one Hit Point, making your people easy pickings).


Head right, go up at the intersection, get the Life from the Treasure Chest,
and then go left trough the secret passage to get an Ether1.  Now head right
through the secret passage once again, go down till you see a Treasure Chest
which will give you a Cure2, and then go left as far as you can.  When you
reach the wall, head up, and then walk left to find some stairs to get you
to B2F.

Cast Float once again on your entire party, walk right till the path
branches, which is where you should go the bottom route to find a Treasure
Chest that contains a Cure2.  Go back to the fork in the path, go up past
the left right turn you could take, and then grab the Cabin from the
Treasure Chest.  Go back down tot he right turn we passed earlier, and then
go the stairs to go to B3F.

Cast Float once more (I know that is getting repetitive), and then head
left, followed by turning down.  Go right, then down to a Treasure Chest to
get a Life Potion, and then go right (ignoring the path to the transporter
for now) to get a Cure3 from the Treasure Chest you will find.  Go right
into the secret passage, go down and then left before going up to a
parrallel to the room on your right where you will open the three Treasure
Chests to get a Cure2, a Poison Axe, and a Ninja Sword (equip it on Edge
right away).  Go back into the secret passage, go up, then right followed
by down.  Go right till the first passage up towards the transporter, but
instead go right through the wall where a secret passage exists.  Go up the
path and then left towards the Treasure Chest to fight MONSTERS!

-------
Warrior
-------

H.P.: 2400

Gold: 575

Exp.: 4300

These guys will hit you hard with physical attacks.  Edge should use his
Ninja Magic (Blitz seems especially effective), Cecil should attack, Rydia
can use Virus or Lit2, and Rosa can Cure and attack as the situation
warrants.  If you wish to make this fight really, simply use Toad on all the
Warriors and pick them off at your leisure (thanks to Benjamin Gilbert for
this tidbit).

Once you defeat the five Warriors, you will receive a Defense Sword (which
is a step up for Cecil in attack and defense departments.  Now head right,
go down, go left through the secret passage, and then take the
transporter to...

The Town of the Summoned Monsters!  Go left to get an Ether1, and then go up
the stairs to get 2000 Gold Pieces.  Go right past the transporter, go down
to get 2000 Gold Pieces, and then go down the stairs to get 3000 Gold
Pieces.  Go one step to the right, and then go straight up to the rail to
step on a semi-transparent transporter to go a secret room.  Grab the 10
Samurai Arrows, Elixer, Ether2, and Samurai Bow (Equip it on Rosa), and then
go back to the transporter.  Keep this place in mind as it has a
semi-transparent transporter below the visible one that you appear on for
you to be carried directly to the mouth of the cave where your Airship
awaits.

Go to the top of the ring of boards to take the transporter, step off the
transporter, step back on, and then go down and right to get a Rat Tail from
the Treasure Chest (Rat Tail?  Tails... something seems familiar).  Anyway,
go back to the transporter, go up and left to enter the Item Shop/Inn to
purchase supplies/fill up your Hit Points and Magic Points.  now head out
again to go left to the next building to find a Heal and Life potion as well

as a SAVE CIRCLE.  Save your game and then head back out to finish your tour
of the strange town.

Go down to the next buildings (the Library), which will fill you in on
various weaknesses in certain monsters (like Odin, and the True Master) and
the abilities of some summoned monsters.  go down to the Weapon Shop to buy a
Blitz Whip for Rydia (maybe some Charm Arrows for Rosa), and then head down,
right and then up into the Armor Shop to buy an Aegis Shield for Cecil and
two Sorcerer Robes for Rydia and Rosa.  Go back to the house where you can
save, and then go through the Library to the left to go down some stairs, and
then take the transporter to appear at...

The King and Queen of the Summoned Monsters!  The man in the room is not the
King of Monsters, but the woman is as she is Queen Asura!  Talk to her to
ask her assistance in your quest, but she will only help if you prove your
worthiness.  Say YES to challenging her, and then get ready to battle...

-----
Asura
-----

H.P.: 23000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 20000

Asura has many faces, and she will use her moves based on which is visible.
She will often cast Cure spells at level 3and even 4 (!) and Life spells,
but there is a way to stop her.  Cast Wall on her to block those spells, and
that way she can no longer Cure herself.  She will also use physical
attacks, but her reflected Cure spells will likely keep their Hit Points
high.  Have Cecil and Edge attack, have Rydia use call magic to summon
Titan, and have Rosa split her time between Aim and using Cure2's and
Cure3's from your inventory when needed (she will also cast Wall on Asura on
her first turn).  If your party becomes weak, just let Asure cast Cure
spells until your entire party is refilled, and then attack anew.

Once the fight ends, Rydia will gain access to Call Asura, who will cast
Cure 3, Cure 4, Life 1, or attack your enemies.  Go back to the Inn to
refill your Hit Points/Magic Points, go left to the next building to the
SAVE CIRCLE to SAVE your game, and thenhead back into the Library to come
back to the King and Queen's Room to talk to the man beside Queen Asura.  He
will then challenge you to show him if you are worthy, and you will then
enter battle with Leviathan!

---------
Leviathan

H.P.: 35000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 28000

Leviathan will open with his big attack, which is a Big Wave, so you start
at a disadvantage.  Then he will cover back up, and he will use Ice2 until
he is ready to open up for his Big Wave attack once more.  He will also
throw in physical attacks throughout this pattern, so keep your Hit Points
high.  Have Cecil attack, Edge should use Ninja Magic (Blitz) and switch to
Darts and attacks once his Magic Points run low, Rydia should use Virus or
Lit2, and Rosa should keep everyone well Cured with Cure2 and Cure3.  this
battle is not overly difficult, especially since your levels are at least in
the mid thirties because you could beat Asura.

Once you win, you will receive the second most powerful Call Magic when you
are allowed to summon the Master of the Seas... LEVIATHAN!  You have
finished your business down here in the Town of Summoned Monsters, so take
the previously mentioned semi-transparent warp to the outside of the Cave of
the Summoned Monsters (or walk out if you want to), and get ready for your
next Sidequest!



************************************
  Making Excalibur                      (SIDE-QUEST)
************************************


Now that Cecil and Company have come back to the underground, where should
we head next?  Remember that Rat Tail that was in the Land of the Summoned
Monsters?  Have you recalled yet why it might be important?  Well, there is
a Tail Collecter near Silvera that might exchange his "funny ore" for a
Tail.  Head there now to get your "funny ore".

Take to the air, go to the north-east corner of the underground to go
through the crater to the overworld, and then go nwest to the Castle of
Eblan, land the Falcon, grab the Enterprise, and fly west to get the
Hovercraft in your Airship's hook.  Go north-west to find Mount Ordeals,
turn north till you see Silvera, where you will drop your Hovercraft and
then land beside it.  Get into the Hovercraft, go across the shallows to the
cave to the south, and head on in.

Walk up to talk to the small fellow, who will only talk to you if you have a
Tail (give him Rat Tail when prompted to do so).  He will do a double take
at the sight of a Tail he does not have, and he will exchange Adamant for
it!  Now you have the rare ore needed by the Blacksmith in the underworld,
you should leave for there immediately.

Head south to find Mount Ordeals, go west to Mysidia, and then go south-west
to find the crate to the underground.  Fly directly south upon appearing
underground until you hit a wall, where you should see a small house tucked
away in a corner of the underground.

Land your Airship, and go inside to see some Dwarves working hard, as well
as some pots (look in them to find a Heal and a Cure2).  Go up the stairs to
find an Elixer in the bookshelf, and then go left to find the greatest
Blacksmith (who has lost all of his confidence unfortunately).  Talk to him
to hear about he could not even find the legendary ore Adamant (at this
point you will have the Item screen pop up, so give him the Adamant).  He is
so overjoyed to recieve such a precious gift, he takes your Legend Sword,
and starts to work on it (come back later).

Before heading out, go downstairs, and immediately walk to the right, as Cecil
and company will take a secret passage to find a treasure chest with a
respectable amount of gold (100 Gold Pieces) inside!.  Exit the house, and go
off to your next challenge while Kokkol works on your almighty new sword.



************************************
  The Sylph Cave                        (SIDE-QUEST!)
************************************


head towards the north-west corner of the Underworld to find a cave that is
to the west of the Tower of Bab-il.  Land in front of the cave mouth, SAVE
your game, and then enter to start into the...

The floor inside of the Sylph Cave will have bright green spots which will
remove 50 Hit Points per teammate, and if left un-Cured, you will have a lot
of members with 1 Hit Point going into battle to be easy pickings.  The way
to avoid this damage is to cast Float (Rosa spell) on all party members to
let them be in the air.  This will allow your party to float above these
damaging spots, and this way you will conserve your Items and Magic Points.

Cast Float at the start, go right to get 10 Charm Arrows and a Cure2 from
the Treasure Chests (ignore the one behind these two for now), and then go
left, followed by going down to go to B2F.

Cast Float on the entire party once again, go down, and then go left to
enter the stairs there to go to the floor above.  Cast Float immediately, go
right to see a SAVE CIRCLE (use if you desire to do so), and then go up to
find a secret passage which goes to a Treasure Chest where an ElvenBow awaits
(equip it on Rosa).  Go back down to the SAVE CIRCLE, goleft past the stairs,
and then turn up to get a Cabin and 1000 Gold Pieces from the Treasure Chets
at the end of the corridor.  Now head back down and then to the right to take
the first set of stairs you see below you.

Cast Float right away, go right, and then up till you have the choice of
going into some stairs on the right (which you will ignore) as you continue
up to arrive at another door.  Go right past it into a secret passage in the
wall, go down, then right, and then up followed by a turn to the left to go to
the Chest to find MONSTERS!

You will face 6 Toads and 1 ToadLady.  She will tell her Toads to Croak, and
they will then cause some of your team to become Toads themselevs.  She will
then attack physically to take your team down.  Attack the ToadLady with
Edge, Cecil, and Rosa (use Aim with her), and have Rydia cast Virus to wipe
the Toads out.  Not a tough battle at all.

Cast Toad on any character of yours that has been turned into a Toad so they
will revert to their true form, and be sure to enjoy your Mute Knife for

Rydia.  Now head back through the secret passage to take the first set of
stairs you see.  Go down to the secret passage, go left through it to get
the Elixer fromt he Treasure Chest, and then head down the path.  You should
turn right to come across a building, which you should enter to find Sylphs,
and more importantly an unconscious Yang!  He will not be talking to you, so
just examine him once and then go get the Posion Claw and Cat Claw from the
Treasure Chests before taking the stairs to the right.  Walk up onto the
platform above you where a semi-transparent teleporter is waiting to take
you to the cave opening.

Since Yang is actually alive, you should let his wife know immediately, so
get in your ship and head to the crater to the overworld so you can test out
Cid's drill.  When you are near the middle of the mark in the ground, press
the A Button to drill thorugh the mountains to go topside once more.  Head
north-east to find Mysidia, which you should fly east of till you see Mount
Ordeals.  Then you should change direction to go north to pass Silvera, and
arrive at Fabul.  Seek out Yang's Wife in the Left Tower to give her the
good news, and after the onions she is cutting causes her to cry (yeah
right...), she will give you the Frying Pan to whack him with to get his
lazy butt back into consciousness (glad she is not my wife)!

Now we should head back to the underworld, so retrace your steps to get to
the crater like before, and then head due west upon arriving underground.
Land in front of the Sylph Cave, SAVE your game, and then head back in.

Walk straight down without casting Float (you will only take 50 Hit Points
of damage anyway) to take the stairs.  Nex you should cast Float, go down
and then left to take the stairs located there.  Cast FLoat immediately, go
left till you see stairs below you, which you should take.  Cast FLoat yet
again, go up till you see stairs on your right, which you will take this
time.  Cast FLoat immediately, go up and then raid the five Treasure Chests
for a Cure2, an Ether1, 10 Lit Arrows, 10 Ice Arrows, and 10 Fire Arrows.
Backtrack t the stairs belwo you get back into the previous section of the
cave, cast Float, and then go up to find stairs to the next area of the
cave.

Go down and then right to once again arrive at the Sylph House, where you
should examine Yang to prompt the Item screen.  Select the Frying Pan
(listed as "Pan") to cause a bitch slap up side the head for Yang!  The
Sylphs will grant Rydia the ability of calling them for you waking Yang up!

Now you should head up the stairs in the room, use the transporter to the
outside, fly to Tomra to use the Inn. and then fly back to the cave once
more.  Your party is now going to remove the rest of the Treasure Chests
remaining inside, so SAVE your game, and step into the cave one more time.

First you will head down to the stairs below you (you will hit one damage
spot, but do not worry about it), and then when you arrive there, cast

Float, followed by going up and then to the left to take some stairs.  Head
down, left, and then up to grab a Heal, Cure2, and a Charm Rod (with the
assist from the secret passage).  Now head down again, enter the secret
passage by the entrance and follow it up to find some stairs to take.

Cast Float once you appear, head right to go down a long path where each
spot is a damage spot (good thing you have Float on), and you should cut
left into a small cubby of a room where a Cure2, 3000 Gold Pieces, a Heal,
and 2000 Gold Pieces are just waiting in their Treasure Chests for you to
grab.  Go back into the narrow corridor on the right, go down to grab the
Cure2 and Cure3 from the the two Treasure Chests to the right of the hole,
and then go left to get two Heals and an Ether1 from the three Treasure
Chests over there.

Go right to fall down the hole, cast FLoat on your team, and then head up
the narrow corridor to turn left to go through a secret passage to find a
transporter, which you should immmediately use.  Cast Float on yourself once
again, make sure your Hit Points are full, and then go right to open the
first Treasure Chest on the top to find MONSTERS!

an extremely tough fight, so be sure to use a Heal Potion on whoever
receives Breath attacks (heal immediately or they will die quickly).
Otherwise do the following: have Cecil attack, Edge use Ninja (cast Flame or
Blitz both work well), Rydia should cast Virus, and Rosa is definitely going
to be busy Curing/Healing everyone.

You will gain a FullMoon for your troubles, which is a throwing weapon that

Centipedes will use physical attacks mostly, so you should respond in turn.
Edge and Cecil should be able to kill off one each of these monstrosities
with one attack each, but use Rosa and Rydia to mop up the leftovers with
their weaker attacks.

10 Medusa Arrows are your reward (not as good as Samurai Arrows, but still
quite good), and then you should head right to take the transporter out of
the cave.  Now you should get in your Airship to go to the overworld, and
then go east to find Mysidia.  Go east form it to find Mount Ordeals, and
then turn north to go past Silvera to find Fabul.

Go inside the castle to go to the Left Tower, find Yang's Wife, attempt to
talk to her which brings up the Item screen, and choose the Frying Pan.
Yang's Wife will thank you for the help, and for your efforts she gives you
a Spoon!  Yes a Spoon!  I am serious you guys!  It just so happens to be the
most powerful Darting object to be found (it is an assured 9999 Hit Points
damage), so save it for an incredibly tough fight.

Now head back to the underground to get ready for your next sidequest!

Since you have to wait for your new sword to be finished, why don't we go
take care of Odin?  Head to the exit fromt he underground (it will be
directly north of you), and then go directly north from the crater to arrive
at Baron.  Enter the castle, go through the two double doors, and then cut
right to take the stairs.  Go right to take the stiars down, wlak down to go
out the door, and then go left and up to enter 1F.

Head down the stairs to your left, check the pots you see to get an Elixer,
and then head right to go to some stairs.  Go down, and then to the right to
meet with the ghost of the deceased King of Baron.  He will reveal that he
has gained power in death that could be useful to your quest, but only if

Odin has powerful physical attacks, so you need to be aware of your Hit
Point stats at all times.  In addition to this, Odin has a time limit on the
fight where he will suddenly do a vicious rushing attack that is guaranteed
to wipe your party out!  Have Cecil attack, Edge should use Ninja Magic
(Blitz really hurts Odin), Rydia should use Indra once and then start using
Lit2, and Rosa should Cure2/Cure3 whoever needs the assistance.  If you fail
to beat Odin, raise your levels slightly, and return to try again.

Rydia will then learn Odin, and she will be able to call his powerful sword
into battle to try and cleave the opposition in half for you!  Head to
Cecil's room in the Right Tower to refil your Hit Points and Magic Points,
and then exit Baron to get on your Airship.

Fly to the Crater south of Baron, go underground, fly south to find the
Blacksmith's house, and go inside.  Talk to Kokkol to get the almighty Sword
Excalibur!  Equip it on Cecil, and then head back outside.

Take to the air again, flu north to the crater, go to the overworld, and
then fly north-east to land outside of Mysidia, and SAVE your game.

************************************


You should enter Mysidia, and walk straight up to have the Edler and his
Black Wizard and White Wizard approach to take you to the Tower of Wishes as
the time has come!  The screen will fade away to reveal...

                       the still land.

                    Veiling the Moon with

                          it brings

                     a bounty and mercy.


The screen will come back to reveal many Black Wizards and White Wizards
wishing along with the Elder, and after a few moments, the sky will be
ripped asunder.  The water outside of town will go into a large whirlpool,
and as they realize that their wish was granted, a large object will rise
from the water to come to a rest on the land to the west of Mysidia!

The Elder will realize that this is the Ship of Light from the Moon, the Big
Whale!  The Elder will then tell you that he heard a voice calling from
afar, from the Moon, in hopes that Cecil would come to see him!  The Big
Whale reveals itself to be the passage to the Moon, as it is not only an
Airship, but a space traveeling ship as well!

Go west from Mysidia, Press the A Button to get on board, explore your new
wild and beautiful ride, and then go talk to the Crystal of Flight to
journey to the Moon!

When you appear on the Moon, your first duty is to just fly around to see
what you have to visit while you are here.  You will see several of caves,
as well as a large Crystal Palace.  Your first job is to find the Crystal
Palace, so go to it.

From there you need to go north-west to the first pass from the grey
mountains, which is where you should land (there is a cave mouth right near
it).  SAVE your game, go down the mountain pass, and then go left to enter
the cave.

Head right upon entering to find a Treasure Chest with MONSTERS inside of
it!

These guys will attack you continually, and they will sometimes poison you
when they land a physical shot.  Attack with Cecil and Edge, have Rydia cast
Virus once, and Rosa should use Aim to take them out quickly.  Another quick
method to win with is to summon Odin to slice them in half (this may not
always work).

You will win an Elixir for your troubles, which should be followed up with
Healing whoever is poisoned, and then go left to turn upwards when the path
allows it.  Once you see the exit from the cave, go right to find two
Treasure Chests that have a Cure2 and a Heal for you.  Now go left ot exit
the cave.

Go right from the cave mouth till you have to choose between up or down on a
fork in the moonscape, and you will go down.  Turn right and then go into
the next cave in the Lunar Path.

Go left, down, left, and down to walk through this section of the Lunar
Path.

Walk left form the cave mouth to enter a three way choice in paths, and you
will then take the left fork to enter the cave mouth, which lands you inside
of Lunar's Lair.

Go right from the start to find a path leading up to a Magic Point recovery
tile.  Go back to the start, then go leftt and then up to find a Hit Point
recovery tile.  Now that you are full, examine the Hit Point tile to
discover MONSTERS!

These big guys will attack you with Petrify a fair amount, and their
physical attacks seem to do no damage.  Also note that their Petrify attacks
will rarely connect.  Attack with Edge and Cecil, have Rydia call Leviathan,
and have Rosa use Aim.  This battle is an odd one since you meet more of
these guys later in the game, and they are nowhere near this harmless.

You will win... abosolutely nothing from the encounter, but it is nearly
10000 free Experience Points to be had for your team if no one is turned
into a statue.  Now refill on the two tiles once again, and then head up the
path that is directly above the entrance.  You will then hear a voice say...

"Welcome!"

Cecil: Who are you?

FuSoYa: I am FuSoYa, the guardian of Lunarians' slumber.

Rosa: Lunarians?

FuSoYa: Yes.  Millenia ago, the planet between Mars and Jupiter was about to
        be shattered.  The people who survived this calamity escaped by
        ships and head for the Blue Planet.

Cecil: The Blue Planet?

FuSoYa: You land Earth.  However, the people of the Earth were still in the
        process of evolution.  Thus they created another Moon and kept
        sleeping.

Edge: Lunarians?

FuSoYa: But he refused it.  He tried to make the Earth his place to live.

Rydia: Who?

FuSoYa: I forced him to sleep.  But his thoughts were still awaken.

Cecil: Is that who is controlling Golbez?

Edge: Who is that!?

FuSoYa: He is Zemus.  He needs the Crystals as energy source to reactivate
        the Tower of Bab-il.  To bring down the Giant of bab-il to
        annihalate the living on Earth!  Most of us Lunarians are waiting
        for you folks on the Blue Planet to be able to understand us.

Cecil: What about the Big Whale?

FuSoYa: My brother KluYa made it to go to the Blue Planet.  He taught your
        folks how to build the Airships and the Serphent Road.  KluYa fell
        in love with a girl of your Blue Planet and gave birth to two
        children.  One of them is... you, Cecil.

*BONNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGG*

Cecil: Me!?  Then the Light on Mount Ordeals was...

FuSoYa: It must be the spirit of your father KluYa.

Cecil: My father... is that Light...

FuSoYa: KluYa gave you his power to thwart the foul machination of Zemus.
        We must stop him for the sake of our two races!  Now let's hurry to
        the Tower of Bab-il in Eblan!

Edge: Tower of bab-il!?  But it's shielded!

FuSoYa: I can neutralize the shield!  I will go with you!

*Lunarian FuSoYa joined*

Now that you have learned that Cecil is in fact half Lunarian/half
Earthling, and that he is most definitely the hope that the world depends
upon, you now know you have to defeat Golbez!  You will have also picked up
one mighty spellcaster in FuSoYa (he knows all the White magic and Black
Magic spells, even Meteo!).

Before we head back to Earth to look into this Tower of Bab-il thing though,
we have one more area to go and visit.  Keep in mind that this is an
optional sidequest, it does lead to great Armor and spells to be learned.
Head out of the Lunar's lair, and go right to enter the Lunar Path once
again.

Go up and turn right when necessary to complete that section of the cave.

Go left, up, and then left again to find the next Lunar Path.

Go down, walk left, and then head down to find the exit from the Lunar Path.

Head right, and then up the slope to enter the Big Whale.  Upon entering, go
down to sleep in one of the chairs in the room below, and then go to the
steering mechanism at the very top of the Big Whale to start flying around
the Moon.  Go west to see a mountain pass above a cave, which means you
should then land above the pass.  Get out, hike down to the cave mouth, SAVE
your game, and then enter the cave.

You will see that you have entered Cave Bahamut, so be ready to face some
powerful adversaries as you go deeper.  Go down across the small path,
continue down to find a Samurai Gauntlet in a Treasure Chest (give it to
Edge), and then go back up across the small path area.  Turn right to go
find a secret passage, which you will take to find a Treasure Chest with a
Samurai Shield inside (equip it on Cecil).  Come back out of the secret
passage to go down and then right to find a path down.  From there you need
to walk around the rock formation below you by going to the left side of it
to find the exit from this area of the cave.

Go left at the start of B2F to turn up when the path dictates that you must
do so.  As you go upwards you will see a Treasure Chest that contains a suit
of Samurai Armor for Edge to wear, and then you should head right past the
narrow path leading up to find a Samurai Helmet for Edge to wear.  Now go
back to the aforementioned narrow path leading up, attempt to cross it, and
you will have to fight to fight a...

special ability to counter attack every physical attack thrown at him, so be
sure to have high Hit Points before attacking (he throws the shots around
randomly).  You also need to watch out for his Storm attack, which appears
to be in retaliation to the casting of a powerful spell. Have Cecil and
Edge attack, have Rydia cast Virus once to start the beast's Hit Points
draining and then she should use Cure2's on hurt people, FuSoYa should use
Nuke or White (or Meteo if you really want to) as well as Cure some damage,
and Rosa should Cure the whole time to assure your victory.

Also note that the Behemoth rarely attacks when he does not have a swing
taken at him, so stop attacking if you are badly damaged so you can refill
your hit Points before you resume pounding on the great beast.

Continue up to go through the door above to go to B3F.

you have arrived in the lair of the most powerful Summoned Monster of them
all.  He is the Master who created the other Summoned Monsters, and he

Bahamut has one attack only, but it is one powerful blast.  It is called
MegaNuke, and it does a massive amount of damage to your team.  Their is a
way to turn this attack back onto Bahamut however, and this is achieved by
doing the following actions.  Cecil and Edge should attack, Rydia should
Call Leviathan, and Rosa and FuSoYa will cast Wall on their teammates one at
a time.  After the MegaNuke lands, you might have missed Walling in one team
member, but the MegaNuke will bounce back to badly damage Bahamut.  Then you
just need to wear him down as he countdowns to again MegaNuke himself.  With
this strategy, you will not have a hard time with this battle.

You will learn the ability to summon Bahamut (THE most powerful summon in
the game!), and thus your trip to this cave was worth it.  Use Exit to leave
Bahamut's cave, go into the Big Whale (which is north of you), and go to
sleep in the middle compartment of the ship to recover your Magic Points and
Hit Points.  Now go outside the ship to SAVE the game, and then talk to the
Crystal of Flgiht to head back to Earth to see if you can break into the
Tower of Bab-il!



************************************
  The Giant of Bab-Il
************************************


You will land partway between the Castle of Eblan the Tower of Bab-il.
Suddenly the ground will start to shake, and FuSoYa will tell you that you
have arrived too late to stop the Giant of bab-il!  The Giant will proceed
forward, and stop every few steps to roast the surrounding countryside with
it's firepower!  Cecil and company will wonder what they can do against the
seemingly invincible foe, when suddenly...

A single round of ammunition hts the Giant in the right leg!  The Dwarven
Tanks will then roll into range, and as they start to pepper the Giant of
Bab-il with large amounts of artillery rounds, old friends in King Giott and
Yang will announce their presence with the intention of fighting this
monstrosity upon the bahelf of all beings on Earth.  However, it still does
not seem to be enough...

Which is the exact point a fleet of Airships come in from the east!  Cid
will be recovered and piloting an Airship with the mechanics and Soldiers of
the Red Wings, The Elder of Mysidia will have White Wizards and Black
Wizards (along with the revived Palom and Porom), and Edward along with the
Troian compliment of women soldiers will all start to bomb the Giant of
Bab-il to help out the cause.

Both sides will be exchanging heavy fire as the Giant of Bab-il will appear
to be vulnerable from the commotion, and FuSoYa decides that going inside is
the best way to fully destroy this vile creation (by destroying it's core).
Cecil will call for Cid to pick up the group with his Airship, and then he
will maneuver towards the Giant of Bab-il, and he will drop the group into
the internal workings of the Giant!

Go up upon landing, go aorund the whole (left or right), and then take the
small bridge to the transporter to go to the next area of the Giant.  The
neck of the Giant simply requires you to walk straight down to the
transporter below you.

The Chest is larger than the previous two areas, so start off by going down
and then walking left to get a Shuriken from a Treasure Chest.  Head left
through the winding path, followed by going down.  Once you have to head
right, be sure to get the Cure2 from the Treasure Chest before you take the
bridge downwards.  Walk right, followed by turing up to get an Ether1 from a
Treasure Chest, and then go right to find a bridge leading up to a fork,
which is where you will go right to get 10 Samurai Arrows.  Now go back down
to go left past a bridge to get a Cabin from the last Treasure Chest on the
floor, and then go right and up to get into the transporter to the next body
part.

The Stomach is where you will start off by going straight up across the
bridge in front of the party to get a Life Potion from a Treasure Chest.  Go
back down acorss the bridge, go right past the first path going up to take
the second path going up to get another Life Potion.  Go back down to take
the path you skipped over just moments ago, and go up it to turn left when
the path opens in that direction.  Continue left while following the up and
down movements of the path to find the transporter to the next area.

The Passage is starts with a small, narrow area for your party to walk down,
followed by a turn to the right until a bridge appears for them to cross and
open a Treasure Chest to find MONSTERS!

It will also use Beam periodically, and if you take too long to kill it, it
will also use Fission to sacrifice itself to damage one of your team members.
To avoid this, have Edge and Cecil attack, Rydia and FuSoYa should use Virus
(quick to cast, good damage), and Rosa should Aim her arrows.

You will take an Elixer for your troubles, and then you should continue to
the right to find a double bridge for you to cross by going upwards.  Head
left past the passage above you to find a SAVE CIRCLE where you can SAVE
your game.  Head right and then up to take the transporter to the lung.  Go
straight up until you enter the square that has a square on each side of it
where Rubicant, Valvalis, Kainazzo, and Milon will appear to taunt and then

You will have to fight each incarnation of the Four Fiends once again
(thanks to Zemus bringing them back), so this section will have strategies
for each opponent.  Each fiend will show up around every 26,000 Hit Points
damage dealt out by your team.

Milon-Z will use strong physical attacks and Curse for the most part, so
just be sure to keep your Hit Points high.  Cecil and Edge should attack,
FuSoYa should use Fire3 and Cure the team, Rydia should summon Bahamut, and
Rosa should Cure the team and cast Cure4 on Milon-Z (it will do around 5000
Hit Points damage to the undead being).

Rubicant is next, and he uses Fire2, Fire3, and Galre as he fights you (none
of these do a whole lot of damage).  Cecil should attack, Edge should use
Ninja Magic to cast Flood, FuSoYa should cast Ice3 as should Rydia (if she
has it) or summon Leviathan, and Rosa should keep the Hit Points high with
Cure3.

Kainazzo is third in the order, and he will sue physical attacks as well as
Big Wave (this does about 500 Hit Points damage to each member of your
team).  Cecil should attack, Edge should use Ninja Magic (Blitz is the
best), FuSoYa should use Lit3, Rydia should Lit3 (if she has it) or summon
Indra, and Rosa should continue to Cure the party.

Valvalis brings up the final line of the Four Fiend offense, and she comes
using Big Wave (again for around 500 Hit Points damage to each team member),
as well as Ray (Petrify), Storm (Weak), and physical attacks.  Have Cecil
attack, Edge should use Ninja Magic (Blitz is suggested), FuSoYa should use
Lit3/White, Rydia should summon Bahamut, and Rosa is your designated Curing
machine.

The Four Fiends will then bemoan their losing to your party, and then you
may wish to back track a secction of the body to use a Cabin and then SAVE
in the SAVE CIRCLE before returning to the lung.  Once you pass through the
lung, you will be int eh CPU, where you will head upwards to find the CPU,
along with some defenses as it attacks!

The boss comes in three parts, all of which have unique properties.  The
Defender will spend a lot of the time just casting Remedy on the CPU at 2000
Hit Points recovered per casting.  The Attacker will use Maser (attack on
everyone for about 200 Hit Points damage each).  CPU will cast Wall on
itself at the start, meaning conventional magics will not get to it
(although Call Magic will work), and if both Attacker and Defender have been
taken down, CPU will use Globe199 (ultra-powerful attack on one person,
killing them immediately) a few times before casting Recover to bring
Attacker and Defender back.  To take the monstrosity down, take out
Defender, take out Attacker (if you want), and the pound on CPU before
repeating the cycle again.  Have Cecil and Edge attack, FuSoYa should Cure
the party as should Rosa (as well as revive team members after Globe199
attacks), and Rydia should summon Bahamut.

After wrecking the CPU, Golbez will charge forward to confront the party,
when FuSoYa rushes forward and casts a spell on Golbez!  Golbez will then
wonder what came over him, and he then speals his father's name when
prompted by FuSoYa, and his Father is KluYa!  The group quickly realizes
that Golbez and Cecil are brothers, and it was because Golbez had some evil
within his soul that he was controlled by Zemus, and not Cecil that was
controlled instead.

Golbez and FuSoYa leave to get Zemus on their own, and then the Giant will
start to collapse!  The group appears doomed to die, when Kain shows up to

get the group out!  Despite some mistrust, the team does follow Kain to
transport out of the Giant just before it explodes!

The team will be on the Big Whale where Kain is ready to pay the
consequences of his actions, and Edge is the most vehement in his mistrust.
Rosa tells them to not be so hard on him as Golbez was controlled as well.
Kain then tells Edge he can take Kain out if he turns yet again, and the
group is ready to head to the moon to find Zemus!  Cecil will then decide
that Rydia and Rosa must not go to the Moon due to the dangers involved, and
the two then exit the Big Whale before the three super macho guys talk to
the Crystal of Flight to go to the moon!

The three will land to start their almost guaranteed suicide mission, and
they will head for the passage out.  However, Rydia and Rosa will pop out to
say they are coming, and after some convincing (and Cecil gets some
kissing), the party will head out as five strong once more!

First you will need to fix your form so you have Kain, Cecil, and Edge in
the front row, with Rydia and Rosa in the back row.  Next, you should head
back to Earth, where you have a few errands to run.

Start off by going to get one of your errant Airships, go into the
underworld, and then fly south to find Kokkol's blacksmith shop.  Talk to
the Dwarf on the right side of the room to buy some throwing stars (Ninja
are superior choice, but expensive at 50000 Gold Pieces per star) as well as
some Samurai Arrows for Rosa to use (the second most powerful ones she can
use).  Now head back to the overworld, go find the Big Whale, and then talk
to the Crystal of Flight to head back to the Moon once more.

Land the Big Whale just to the north-west of the Lunar's Lair, get out, SAVE
your game, and then walk down and then left to enter the Lunar Path.  Walk
up the left path until you see the door, which you should take to exit the
Lunar Path.  Head right until the path branches, at which point you should
head down and then right to enter the Lunar Path.  Head left and then down
to go thorugh this narrow and small cave.  Head left to find the cave mouth
entrance to the Lunar's Lair.  Go inside to use the two tiles to refill your
Hit Points and Magic Points, and then go outside to SAVE your game.

Keep in mind while you journey into the Lunar Subterranean that there are not
only great weapons and armor to be found in the multitude of Treasure Chests
below, but many enemies also hold precious weapons and armors that can not be
found anywhere else in the game!  The following chart will give you the
listings of enemies and enemy groups to fight if you search for these hard to
near impossible to find artifacts!

Keep in mind that these enemies may also distribute other rare and
incredibly good items as well, but this is what I have encountered in all my
years of playing this game.

Head into the Lunar's Lair once more, and go around the throne to find
stairs to the next floor, where the eight Crystals have been positioned
around a warp tile.  Talk to each Crystal to learn that great weapons lie
below in the Moon's Core, that Golbez and FuSoYa are below going to find
Zemus, and that Zemus has increased his powers significantly which even
FuSoYa will have great difficulty prevailing.  After learning some knowledge
that may come in handy, you should then step onto the crystal tile to be
transported by the combined might of the Crystals to arrive in the Moon's
Core!

Go up, followed by turning right, and then head down to enter a secret
passage on your right.  Once you have gone through the passage, head left
along the narrow path above you, and then walk down the path to until you
see a Treasure Chest, which you should open to find MONSTERS!

Two of these baddies will attack you here, but unlike the freebie battle
that you had with two of them in the Lunar's Lair, these ones will attack
you.  They will use Beam, Emission, and physical attacks to put the hurt on
you (they are also pretty fast for big beings).  Edge and Cecil should
attack, Kain should jump, Rydia should use Ice3 or Virus, and Rosa should
Cure your aches and pains.

A Ninja Suit is your reward (equip it on Edge and give his Samurai Armor to
Cecil), and then backtrack up and then right to go through the secret
passage once more.  Go left and up past the transporter you arrived on to go
see a secret passage in the wall.  Once you go through it, turn down to take
a transporter to Lunar Subterrane B1.  Walk straight up to go through the
door above to arrive in Lunar Subterrane B2.  Go up to find MONSTERS in a
Treasure Chest!

Warlocks will use relatively innefective physical attacks while using magic
spells like Fire2 and Weak to soften your party up.  Kary's will use strong
physical attacks to put the hurt on your team.  Have Cecil and Edge attack
one Kary at a time to bring them down quickly, have Kain Jump a Warlock,
Rydia should bring Virus raining down, and Rosa should Cure the wounds as
they pop up.

A Life Staff is your reward for the battle, and then you should cut left and
then down to take the transporter below to go to another part of Lunar
Subterrane B2.  Go left, turn down as soon as you can (ignore the secret
passage on the left), and then turn left to find a door to Lunar Subterrane
B3.  Go rightt, then turn up, cast Float on the entire party, and then go
left to examine the floating sword on the pedestal to hear...

Go to the eternal gloom of the Dark World before you can touch this blade..!

Then the battle will ensue for the Murasame!

The Pale Dim has a good bag of ticks to call upon in this fight including:
physical attacks, Slow spell, and Quake.  Quake will only be used in
response to a high end Black Magic spell attack, but this is countered by
casting Float before the fight begins.  Have Cecil and Edge attack, Kain
should Jump, Rydia should summon Bahamut, and Rosa should Cure when needed
and attack when she has the chance by using her Aim command.

You will gain control of the Murasame, so equip it on Edge (to replace his
Long Sowrd).  Now you should cast EXIT to leave the dungeon behind and
arrive outside of the Lunar's Lair, and then you should go inside to use the
tiles to restore your Hit Points and Magic Points to full before returning
outside to SAVE your game.



************************************
  Wyvern Awaits
************************************

Head back into the Lunar's Lair, go past the throne to the Crystal Room, and
then step on the Crystal tile to have the Crystals send you off to the
Moon's Core!

A quick reminder (from now on in this and the following sections) to the
player is that whenever your group starts to feel run down and weak, and your
Magic Points are getting dangerously low, you should use Exit to land back
outside the Lunar's Lair.  This is where you can refill your Hit Points and
Magic Points and SAVE your game.  Then you just need to get back to the point
you were on the walkthrough, and join it in progress to make the playing as
easy as possible.

Go up across the bridge, go left followed by turning to go downwards.  Take
the path to your left down, and then turn right to enter the door to go to
Lunar Subterrane B2.

Head down and then right to enter a secret passage.  Go up the secret
passage till it branches to the left, which you should walk down to find a
Flame Whip (equip it on Rydia), and then backtrack to the main path of the
secret passage.  Walk upwards, turn left to exit the secret passage, and
then go left through the room to go into anohter secret passage.  When you
emerge in the next room, walk past the door above you as you go left to find
a Dragoon Shield in a Treasure Chest (equip it on Kain).  Now go right to
walk through the previously passed door to go to Lunar Subterane B3.

When you appear you should walk down to go around the rock formation below
on the left side, and then continue past the first secret passage to take
the second scret passage (it is on the right side of the room).  It takes
you to a Treasure Chest with a Dragoon Helmet inside (give ti to Kain), and
then go through the secret passage on the right to go downwards to arrive in
the next room with another Treasure Chest, this one containing Dragoon Armor
(once again it is for Kain).  Go tot he bottom left corner of the room to
find a Treasure Chest with a Dragoon Gauntlet (Kain gets this), and then
backtrack through the two secret passages to arrive back in the main chamber
of this floor.  Go up to enter the door above to get to Subterrane B4.

Go right from the door to cross a narrw stretch of floor, continue right
past the stairs to go under the rock formation to see a Treasure Chest which
has 10 Artemis Arrows (Rosa's most powerful Arrows, but save them for
tougher battles).  Head back to the left to go down the stairs you skipped
earlier, and then head left to find big spires of rock with an opening in
the rock face waiting for you to enter.  Once inside, open the Treasure
Chest to find an Elixer.  Go right once you exit the room until you see some
stairs leading down to the next level of cliffs on this floor (take the
stairs).  Walk right to enter the opening in the rock wall, and when you are
inside, go up along the wall on your right to find a Treasure Chest that
contains a Cure3.  Now head left past the rock formation blocking most of
the path to see an opening below, but continue past it to find another Cure3
in a Treasure Chest.  Now go right to use that opening to come out into the
main area of the floor where a Treasure Chest awaits you below with MONSTERS
inside!

These guys are means customers that hit you EXTREMELY hard.  This guy has a
special ability to counter attack every physical attack thrown at him, so be
sure to have high Hit Points before attacking (he throws the shots around
randomly).  You also need to watch out for his Storm attack, which appears
to be in retaliation to the casting of a powerful spell. Have Cecil and
Edge attack, have Kain Jump, have Rydia cast Virus once to start the
beast's Hit Points draining and then she should use Cure2's on hurt people,
and Rosa should Cure the whole time to assure your victory.

Also note that the Behemoth rarely attacks when he does not have a swing

taken at him, so stop attacking if you are badly damaged so you can refill
your hit Points before you resume pounding on the great beast.

A StarDust Rod is your prize, and you should then head right to take the
stairs down into the blackness below!

When you arrive in Lunar Subterrane B5, you will notice a sword to your
right (this is indeed another of those weapons that the Crystals mentioned),
but you can not seem to access it through any means.  Head down the long
flight of stairs to turn left and go past the opening in the rock face to
turn upwards and open the Treasure Chest there to fight MONSTERS!

Amazingly strong physical attacks and quick shots of Blizzard (Ice spell)
will drain your Hit Points continually.  Attack with Cecil and Edge, have
Kain Jump. have Rydia summon Bahamut once and then use Virus continually,
and Rosa will most definitely have her hands full with Curing the team.

The Crystal Shield is your great reward for this battle, so be sure to equip
it on Cecil (the only one who can use it).  Walk down and to the right to
enter the opening in the rock face to enter a room where you should walk up.
Go right through the secret passage to grab a Protect Ring from a Treasure
Chest (give it to Rydia or Rosa), and then head through the secret passage

The Crystal Gauntlet is the prize (once again for Cecil) before heading down

enter the next opening in the rock face you see.  Head up into the room, go
left past the wall to go down to open a Treasure Chest to find a White RObe

This is a much simpler fight than what you have been dealing with for the
majority of the Treasure Chest battles, but try not to get a swelled head.
Warlocks can use physical attacks (very weak though), Fire2, and Weak.  D.
Fossil will use physical attacks and Curse to hurt your team.  Have Cecil
and Edge attack the D. Fossil, Kain should Jump the Warlock, Rydia should
cast Virus, and Rosa should Cure any aches and use Aim to hurt the D.
Fossil.

A Crystal Helmet (it is for Cecil) is your reward, and you should follow
this fabulous find up by going down and then right past an opening in the
rock wall and a ladder to enter the opening in the rock wall to the right of
the ladder.  go to the Treasure Chest on the right side of the room to find
a Cabin.  This si the same room that you can look for the legendary Pink Puff
(odds of encounter are 1-64), and if you do find and then kill them, you have
a slim chance of recieving a Pink Tail (odds are 1-64 again).  Go back out the
door, go left to the ladder, and climb down to Lunar Subbterrane B6.

Walk down off the ladder, go right to find a Ninja Star, and then go left to
find 10 Atemis Arrows.  Now head down the ladder on the left to find a Cabin
in a Treasure Chest, and then you should walk up till you are directly below
the ladder you came down.  Now this is perhaps the most unfair thing the
programmers could do, but this part here is really awesome to know about.
Go directly left and your party will almost magicalle walk over the air to
the land on the far side of the gap!  Head up to the secret passage, enter
it and take the stairs to arrive in another section of Lunar Subterrane B6.
Go down to get a Life Potion from a Treasure Chest, followed up by going
right to find a transporter to yet another part of Lunar Subterrane B6.  Walk

ladder to open a Treasure Chest to fight MONSTERS!

Another Protect Ring is the valued treasure here (give to whichever lady

The Wyvern can use MegaNuke, Wall, Nuke, and Remedy fairly frequently.  This
mean customer uses MegaNuke just like it's look alike Bahamut, but it will
begin the fight with one.  This will lay most of your party to rest (usually
leaves only one member alive).  Your first job is to get Rosa back on her
feet so she can then cast Wall on herself.  Then you should try to get
Cecil and Rydia up so you have your powerhouse hitter (Rydia with Bahamut)
and Cecil for his ability to take hits (and throw around 2500 damage at a
time).  Whenever you get a Bahamut shot in, Wyvern will respond with a
MegaNuke, and if it hits Rosa, her Wall will reflect the damage back at
Wyvern.  Edge and Kain do not contribute enough or stand up to the spells
well for you to keep reviving them.  Remember that Rosa can only be cured
with Cure2's and Cure3's from your inventory.  With a little bit of luck,
you can win this one rather easily.

You will get the Crystal Sword for your victory, which is an awesome upgrade
in power for Cecil.  Now head down and left to enter the opening in the rock
face to use a Cabin in the SAVE CIRCLE, followed by a SAVE of your game.

to arrive in a sceret passage. Go left out of the secret passage, followed

to arrive back where you entered this side path.

attack the whole time, so use the following techniques: Cecil should attack,
Kain should Jump, Edge should throw a Ninja Star and then attack, Rydia
should use Bahamut, and Rosa should use Aim with her powerful Artemis Arrows
equipped.  Being quick and decisive in your decisions with your party
members can often be the difference between winning and losing.

Give the White Lance to Kain to increase his attack at a slight cost to his
defense stat (due to the fact that the Gungir he has equipped was raising 
Kain's Vitality stat), and then head out the door, turn left, and then enter
the opening in the rock face to go SAVE in the SAVE CIRCLE.



************************************
  D. Lunar and Ogopogo Assault
************************************


Go out the opening below your SAVE CIRCLE, go right past the former home of
Plague to enter the next opening in the rock wall to walk up between two
pillars towards two Treasure Chests when a firm voice decrees:


This sacred Ribbon shall not be within your hands...!

--------
D. Lunar
--------

H.P.: 21000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 50000

You get to fight two D. Lunar's.  D. Lunars use physical attacks as well as
Wall to start off with.  Then they will use Virus and Remedy following this
to attack your team and Cure themselves for 2100 Hit Points.  Have Edge and
Cecil attack (his Crystal Sword does 9999 damage), Kain should jump, Rydia
should Call Bahamut, and Rosa should Aim with her arrows.  If Rosa gets to
go first for your team, cast Cure4 on one of the D. Lunars to hurt the one
you aim for for about 3000 Hit Points.

Go upwards to find two Ribbon Helmets, which anyone can equip.  They are
powerful Helmets, but their real power lies in thefact that they can block
much of the damage of most types of Magic as well as making the wearer
immune to all status effects.

Go out the opening below, go left to enter the SAVE CIRCLE room, use a Tent,
SAVE, and then go back out the opening.  Walk right till the path cuts up
around the rooms you have been in fighting Plague and D. Lunars to go turn
leftt to go down a ladder.  Go left upon reaching the lower ledge to go
through the opening in the rock face to arrive at the Crystal Path.

Go right upon entering to take a ladder down to the next level of the path,
where you should head left to go past a ladder to a Treasure Chest which
contains a Ninja Star.  Take the ladder down, walk right until you face a
fork in the path, which is where you take the path leading downwards.  Walk
to the right to see a sword floating majestically in the air, and when you
examine it, you will hear an ominous voice say:


You think that you, the ones from the Blue Planet, can handle this blade of
black, Masamune!

-------
Ogopogo
-------

H.P.: 37000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 61100

Ogopogo has a few attacks to use on your party, including: Big Wave, Blaze,
and physical attacks.  Ogopogo will begin the fight with a double shot of
Big Wave, which will take your team's Hit Points to quite low numbers (Rosa
should use Cure4 on everyone for her first move, and use Cure2 on all from
Cecil if you like to as well).  You should have Cecil attack, Kain Jump,
Edge should throw Ninja Stars, Rydia summon Bahamut or use Nuke, and have Rosa
Cure the party and use White on Ogopogo when you can (if you have it that is).
Not a particularly hard fight once you have enough Hit Points to survive the
intial attack (which you should have easily by this point).

Recieve the Masamune, and equip it on Edge (remove his Ninja Sword).



************************************
  The Crystal Path
************************************


Go left along the path to take the narrow path up, turn left, and then go up
the ladder.  Walk right to take a ladder up, and then head left to find the
passage back to Lunar Subterrane B7.  You should then head up the ladder to
your right, go right upon finishing your climb, and then go down the narrow
path.  Go left past the first two openings in the rock face to enter the
third opening to find the SAVE CIRCLE.  SAVE your game, and then you have a
decison to make.  You can use a Cabin to recover your Hit Points and Magic
Points to 100 % and head back out to the Crystal Path to start your journey
towards Zemus, or you can return to Earth to get some more Ninja Stars for
Edge to use.  If you are going to return to Earth, read the all the
paragraphs of this section, but if you just want to go down the Crystal
Path, skip the  next eight paragraphs.

Cast Exit to return to the Moon's surface, where you should head right to
enter the cave on the right, which is a Lunar Path.  Go up and to the right
to find the exit from this short cave.  Go up and to the left where a fork
appears, and you should take the left path to find another Lunar Path.  Go
down and to the left to traverse most fo the cave, walk around the wall
blocking direct access to the exit to leave the cave.  Go left and then up
the mountain pass to get on the Big Whale, talk to the Crystal of Flight,
and start the journey back to Earth.

Land your Big Whale near one of your Airships, get off it, get into the
Airship, and then go down the crater intot he underground.  Head south to
Kokkol's the Blacksmith, talk to the Dwarf on the right side of the house to
spend all of your remaining funds on Ninja Stars for Edge (sell excess
equipment to get as many as possible, but hold onto your Darting Weapons you
have left and about 300000 Gold Pieces).  Now you should get back on your
Airship, fly north, go through the crater, go back to the Big Whale, and
talk to the rystal of Flight for the last time to take you back to the Moon!

When you land on the moon, go south of the Lunar's Lair crystal palace to
find a cave enclosed by mountains (land inside the ring).  Go into the cave
to find the home of the Humingways where one of the beings walking around
is a merchant, and use your saved money to buy as many Ether2 and then as
many Ether1s as possible before leaving the cave to get back on the Big
Whale.  Go land it on the Mountain above the pass that leads to the Lunar
Path.

Land the Big Whale just to the north-west of the Lunar's Lair, get out, SAVE
your game, and then walk down and then left to enter the Lunar Path.  Walk
up the left path until you see the door, which you should take to exit the
Lunar Path.  Head right until the path branches, at which point you should
head down and then right to enter the Lunar Path.  Head left and then down
to go through this narrow and small cave.  Head left to find the cave mouth
entrance to the Lunar's Lair.  Go inside to use the two tiles to refill your
Hit Points and Magic Points, and then go outside to SAVE your game.

Go into the Crystal Room, step onto the transporter, and go to the Moon's
Core thanks to the Crystals.  Go up across the bridge, go down and take the
narrow path down to turn right to go through the door to Lunar Subterrane
B2.  Go down and then right to enter a secret passage which you should take
upwards to find a turn to the left.  Go through the small room and the
secret passage to go through the door to Lunar Subterrane B3.

Go down on the left side of the rock formation below you to enter the door
to go to Lunar Subterrane B4.  Head right to take a ladder down to the next
level where you should walk right to climb down another ladder.  Go left to
find two rock pillars to go between and enter the opening in the rock face
to end up in a cave where you should immediately go left to find the exit
from the room.  Go down and to the right to take the ladder leading into the
black depths below to Lunar Subterranean B5.

Climb down the ladder to go left to find an opening in the rock wall, which
you should enter.  Walk up until you see a secret passage on the right,
which is where you should enter to go through a small room to find another
secret passage.  Once you pas through the secret passage, go up through the

door above to appear where you need to walk to the left to enter the opening
in the rock face.  Go up to take the door in the room to appear out in the
main area again, where you should go right to go down the ladder to the
depths of Lunar Subterranean B6.

Go down the ladder on the right, walk around the rock formation below to
enter the opening in the rock face to enter a room where you should go up
the right wall to find the door to Lunar Subterranean B7.  Head down and to
the right to enter the first opening in the rock wall to find a SAVE CIRCLE
where you should use a Tent/Cabin and SAVE your game.

Walk out the opening of the mini-cave, turn right to go past the openings in
the rock wall, and turn upwards.  Turn left once the path switched
direction, and go down the ladder when it appears.  Go left to go through
the opening in the rock face between the rock pillars to enter the Crystal
Path.

Go right upon entering to take a ladder down to the next level of the path,
where you should head left to get to a ladder you go down.  Go right past
the path leading down, go up, turn left, and then climb down the ladder to
go one level lower into the Crystal Path.

Head down the ladder to your right, go get the Treasure Chest on the right
for an Elixer, and then go back down to take the ladder below you down.  Go
left to climb down a ladder, followed by turning right to go get a Whistle
from a Treasure Chest (this can be used to call a Fat Chocobo with all of
your stored items).  Continue right to take a transporter to the next level
of the Crystal Path.

Go left to take a small ladder down, turn right to go above a small block in
your path, and then climb down the next ladder.  Grab the Ninja Star from
the Treasure Chest on the right, walk left past the ladder leading down to
get another Ninja Star from a Treasure Chest, and then walk right to find a
ladder leading to a transporter, which will take you even deeper into the
Crystal Path.

Head directly left to find a ladder to climb down, turn right to go directly
to another ladder leading down, and then go left to find a transporter to
the lair of Zemus!

Walk forward to watch Golbez and FuSoYa attack Zemus with many spells, but
they have little effect.  Golbez and FuSoYa will then try to do Meteo
together (W. Meteo), and it destroys Zemus!

As the group celebrates this turn of events, and as Golbez and Cecil eye
each other uneasily, Zemus will be consumed by the Dark Substance of his
hatred, and becomes Zeromus!  He will use his power to knock everyone back,
with Golbez and FuSoYa being the only ones standing.  FuSoYa and Golbez will
then try Meteo once each, but it heas Zeromus!  Golbez will try the Crystal,
but this does not work as he has darkness upon his soul.  Zeromus will then
wipe the two out with a Meteo of his own!  He will then start to suck
everyone into his darkness, when the scene suddenly changes...

It goes to Mysidia where everyone that helped you (and you helped them) along
your journey will start to wish for your safe return and ability to win for
all people in the universe!

Cecil will rise, recieve the Crystal from Golbez, and enter battle against
Zeromus with 1 Hit Point and no allies!  The people on Earth will continue to
wish and lend their energies to your team to fully revive them while
Encouraging the party to succeed!  Now enter the FINAL BATTLE!



*************************
  Zeromus
*************************


H.P.: 100000+ (not sure of exact amount)

Gold: 0

Exp.: 0

Zemus has an incredible amount of attacks, and they will be listed below
with a description of what they do, how much Hit Points they remove, and
what causes each attack to occur.

Big Bang..: Used periodically by Zeromus to inflict about 1200 to 2000 Hit
            Point damage on each member of your party, followed by sapping
            your Hit Points like Virus.  It will often knock one of your
            team members down.

Black Hole: This spell will be used by Zeromus to remove Magics like Wall
            or Fast from your party.  This is not a concern as we do not
            use those in this battle.

Meteo.....: This starts to be casted when Zeromus nears his demise, and it
            hits only some of your team members most of the time.  The more
            teammates that get hit, the less damage recieved, and it still
            only deals around 800 to 1200 Hit Point damage for each member.

Nuke......: This spell will be used periodically to concentrate heavy damage
            (1000 to 1600 Hit Point damage) on a single member of your team.
            It will often knock your team member out.

Virus.....: This wicked spell will cost you about 200 to 500 Hit Point damage
            to each team member, but it has the added effect of continually
            sapping your Hit Points as time goes on.

If you use Nuke, Meteo, or White on Zemus, he will often counter with the same
spell (up to three times over) on your party (also note he can bring out a Weak
spell in place of these spell counters).  Although his spells are nowhere as
near the power that your spells are at, they will still decimate your party.
Avoid casting these spells if you wish to have an easier time winning the
ultimate battle for Mother Earth!

Your battle plan can be explained indvidually for each team member, and what
they are responsible for in this fight.

Cecil should use his first round to use the Item "Crystal", which was given
to him by Golbez.  This cause Zeromus to be a MUCH easier target to hurt.
From then on, Cecil should just attack with his Crystal Sword unless he is
needed for dire need of Curing.

Kain has one job to do, and that is to Jump keep jumping unless he has to
feed an Item like Cure3 or an Elixer to someone.

Edge should throw the following things in this order: Spoon, Excalibur
Sword, Defense Sword,Light Sword, Gungir Spear, Drain Spear, and then throw
your large  collection of Ninja Stars.

Rydia has a main purpose of Calling Bahamut to the battle, and she should
also call Asura if you need to gamble for a quick Cure (this should be in
desperation only).  Using Meteo or Nuke will cause unwanted side effects
(see Zermous attacks for details).

Rosa has the job of keeping the Hit Points high on the whole team.  She
should also use Life2 where applicable to revive a fallen teammate.

Start off with Cecil using the Crystal on Zeromus to weaken him by causing
his true colours to emerge!  Attack with  the strategies listed above as
Zeromus uses Big Bang, Virus, Nuke, Black Hole, and Meteo against you.

CONGRATULATIONS ON BEATING THE GAME, AND NOW ENJOY THE ENDING OF THE GAME AS
YOU DESERVE IT!

*******************************************************************************
5.) Magic Details
*******************************************************************************


As a person's magic attack/defense stat is raised, the power of the spell will
increase for the caster.  This means that some slightly weaker armor or wepaon
that has a higher rating in this area might be better for a heavy magic user to
equip instead of a stronger armor or weapon.



X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X
     White Magic
X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X

This form of magic is defensive by nature, and it is primarily used in this
form.  However, through the use of some spells, your White Magic user can alter
stats of your party or the enemy and maybe even attack directly with the one
attack spell White Magic has!  Young Rydia, Paladin Cecil, Tellah, Rosa, Palom,
and FuSoYa all have use of White Magic in their journey.  However, not everyone
can use (or even learn) all of the listed spells.

-----
Cure1
-----
MP Cost: 3
Targets: Singular/All

This is the lowest level spell to be used to recover the Hit Points of your
team.  It can be cast on a single target as well as the whole team, but it is
so weak that the Hit Points recovered will be rather small.  This spell can
also be used to damage undead enemies.

===============================================================================

-----
Cure2
-----
MP Cost: 9
Targets: Singular/All

This is the second lowest level spell to be used to recover the Hit Points of
your team.  It can be cast on a single target as well as the whole team, but it
is rather weak, and the Hit Points recovered will be somewhat small.  This
spell can also be used to damage undead enemies.

===============================================================================

-----
Cure3
-----
MP Cost: 18
Targets: Singular/All

This is the second highest level spell to be used to recover the Hit Points of
your team.  It can be cast on a single target as well as the whole team, and it
proves to be an excellent choice for recovery when applied to the whole team
for Hit Point recovery (even from powerful Black Magic attacks).  This spell
can also be used to damage undead enemies.

===============================================================================

-----
Cure4
-----
MP Cost: 40
Targets: Singular/All

This is the most powerful spell used to recover Hit Points of your team.  It
can be cast on a single target (recovers the individuals Hit Points to
maximum), and it can also be cast on your whole team for a large Hit Point gain
across the board for your team (but it will not necessarily refill every member
to full Hit Points).  This spell can also be used to damage undead enemies.

===============================================================================

-----
Life1
-----
MP Cost: 8
Targets: Singular

Casting this spell on a character who has reached swoon status (their Hit
Points have dropped to 0 or below), this spell will revive the fallen
character.  However, they will return to the battle with 5 times of their
Vitality statistic, so you will need to further Cure their wounds to get them
to 100 % Hit Points.

===============================================================================

-----
Life2
-----
MP Cost: 52
Targets: Singular

Casting this spell on a character who has reached swoon status (their Hit
Points have dropped to 0 or below), this spell will revive the fallen
character to full Hit Point status.  This spell does not affect the Magic
Points of the revived character (it does remove 52 Magic Points from the caster
however).

===============================================================================

----
Heal
----
MP Cost: 20
Targets: Singular

Casting this spell on a character of your team who has any of the following
status ailments will completely remove them: Petrify, Count, Stop, Beserk,
Charm, Sleep, Paralyze, Float, Curse, Poison, Darkness, Mute, Toad, Small,
Piggy, and Stone.  Also remember that this spell will remove all staus ailments
that are afflicting the person, not one at a time.

===============================================================================

-----
Sight
-----
MP Cost: 2
Targets: N/A

This magic will cause the overhead camera to zoom out (in the overworld only)
to allow you a view of the landscape that is broader than what you can see
normally.  Definitely more useful to your party early in the game, as you will
not have seen most of the world at that point (you can get lost rather easily).

===============================================================================

----
Exit
----
MP Cost: 10
Targets: N/A

A spell that can remove your party from almost every dungeon in the game
immediately (some dungeons do not allow it for various reasons).  This spell
can also be used to escape any battle, with the exception of Boss and Treasure
Chest battles.

===============================================================================

-----
Float
-----
Mp Cost: 8
Targets: Singular/All

This spell is mainly intended for use when your party has to wander through
caves that have portions of the floor with damaging pools of liquid spread
through out (your party will safely walk over top of these pools).  Float can
also be used on your party so the spell Quake or the summon Titan can not hurt
you (need to be on the ground to be hurt).

===============================================================================

----
Peep
----
MP Cost: 1
Targets: Singular

By casting this spell, an enemies remaining Hit Points  and maximum Hit Points
will be revealed to you.  The inherit weaknesses of each enemy you Peep on, but
this spell does not work on stronger enemies.

===============================================================================

-----
Blink
-----
MP Cost: 8
Targets: Singular

This little spell can be cast on one party member at a time, and it has the
effect of allowing the recipient of the spell to dodge a couple physical
attacks.

===============================================================================

------
Beserk
------
MP Cost: 18
Targets: Singular

The person who recieves this spell will enter a "berserk" state of mind, and
they will just start to swing their weapon harder than they normally can (also
having the ability to critically hit the opposition more often).  However, this
character will be uncontrollable until the fight ends (they will not be using
Magic or Items), or until they swoon and are revived.

===============================================================================

----
Wall
----
MP Cost: 30
Targets: Singular

With this spell in place any member of your party or the enemy can reflect most
Magics back at the other side.  However, if a spell is reflected off one wall,
another wall can not block the reflected magic (remember this for certain
situations).

===============================================================================

----
Slow
----
MP Cost: 14
Targets: Singular

With this useful little incantation, the enemy can have their time between
their attacks, and this will help your team out greatly with strong hitting
enemies.  This can also be used on your characters, but their is no real use to
do so.

===============================================================================

----
Fast
----
MP Cost: 25
Targets: Singular

When cast upon a teammate, they will start to get more turns in a shorter
amount of time.  This is especially useful in fights where speed is required to
defeat the enemy (like Plague or Odin).  The enemy can also recieve this spell
from your caster, but that would be harmful to your efforts to give the
opposition more attacks.

===============================================================================

----
Size
----
MP Cost: 6
Targets: Singular

When it successfully is cast upon an opponent or teammate, they will be
shrunken down to a very minature version of their full-sized self.  This will
disable all Magic (except for Size), drop the attack power and defense power to
a low level, and special skills will be disabled.  To rid yourself of this
affliction, Heal the affetced person, or use the spell Size on them to return
them to their original form.

===============================================================================

----
Hold
----
MP Cost: 5
Targets: Singular

If successfully applied to a target (enemy or your party), the affected will be
unable to move.  Healing the held is the only way to get them back into the
fight, or just wait for battle to end for this to wear off.

===============================================================================

----
Mute
----
MP Cost: 6
Targets: Singular

By using this successfully on a target, the recipient will be rendered
speechless.  This means that if they were attempting a spell at the time, they
will fail to cast it, and then they will be unable to cast spells!  However,
this can be removed by Healing the affected.

===============================================================================

-----
Charm
-----
MP Cost: 10
Targets: Singular

When this spell has worked against the target, the affected party will begin to
attack their allies, or cast spells in favour of the opposition.  This can be
stopped in two ways within your allies, and that is to Heal them or to
physically hit them to stop the odd dance they do.

===============================================================================

-----
White
-----
MP Cost: 46
Targets: Singular

This is the one true attack spell of the White Magic spell family.  It has a
power level that is roughly the equivalent of the Black Magic spell Nuke, and
this means it packs a powerful punch.  However, the downside to this powerful
spell is that a Wall spell can reflect the spell back at your party!



X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X
     Black Magic
X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X

Ah yes, the arcane arts...  These spells are cast by people who have control of
the power to contort reality to their means so they can land hurtful elements
onto one another.  This is the offesnive side of magic, and with it the caster
can deliver high amounts of damage in a short amount of time over a wide range
of targets.  Young Rydia, Tellah, Palom, Adult Rydia, and FuSoYa all have some
degree of mastery of these attack spells (but not all learn the whole spectrum
of them).

Also note that unless stated otherwise, a Wall spell will reflect the casted
spell.

-----
Fire1
-----
MP Cost: 5

The weakest of the Fire spells, it is most effective when used against undead
enemies and ice enemies.

===============================================================================

===============================================================================

----
Ice3
----
MP Cost: 30
Targets: Singular/All

The most powerful of the Ice spells, it is most effective when used against
fire enemies and seom cave-dwelling enemies.

===============================================================================

-----
Virus
-----
MP Cost: 20
Targets: Singular/All

A non-elemental spell that is quite powerful.  It will deal somewhere between
1000 and 2000 Hit Points damage normally on a single target (it lessens when
cast on numerous targets).  An added bonus of this magic attack is that the
targets hit by the spell will lose Hit Points continually in increments of two.

===============================================================================

-----
Quake
-----
MP Cost: 30
Targets: All

A powerful attack spell with the ground opening up to swallow the targets.
However, flying enemies are immune due to being away from the heaving ground.
Also keep in mind that this spell ignores a Wall spell cast on a target, so it
can not be reflected.

===============================================================================

----
Nuke
----
MP Cost: 50
Targets: Singular

An extremely powerful attack spell that hits only a single target (with a lot
of damage dealt to the recipient).

===============================================================================

-----
Meteo
-----
MP Cost: 99
Targets: All

THE most powerful attack spell in the game, it targets all the opposition and
rarely deals less than 9999 damage to the Hit Points of the enemy.  This spell
does have the downside of taking a couple of turns to cast, and some tougher
enemies will have a counter in place for them to hurt your party in
retaliation.  This spell ignores a Wall spell on a target when attacking.

===============================================================================

-----
Piggy
-----
MP Cost: 1
Targets: Singular

This spell will turn the target into a pig, with the effect of severe lowering
of attack and defense capabilities as well as removing the ability to cast all
magic spells (with the exception of Piggy).  There are two ways to rid yourself
of this effect; one is to Heal the target and the other is to cast Piggy on the
target.

===============================================================================

----
Toad
----
MP Cost: 7
Targets: Singular

This spell will turn the target into a toad, with the effect of severe lowering
of attack and defense capabilities as well as removing the ability to cast all
magic spells (with the exception of Toad).  There are two ways to rid yourself
of this effect; one is to Heal the target and the other is to cast Toad on the
target.

===============================================================================

----
Stop
----
MP Cost: 9
Targets: Singular/All

This spell will cause the target to not move.  This means that they will be
unable to participate until someone Heals the afflicted or a certain amount of
time passes by.

===============================================================================

-----
Sleep
-----
MP Cost: 12
Targets: Singular

When sucessfully cast on a target, the recipient will fall asleep.  This means
that they will be unable to do anything as they slumber peacefully.  Heal them
or wait for a few turns to get them back into the fight.

===============================================================================

-----
Stone
-----
MP Cost: 15
Targets: Singular

This spell will cause a target of it to get turned partially to stone.  As the
fight progresses, the effects will flow through the rest of the body until the
victim is completely stone, and rendered immobile to the end of the battle.
This progression can be sped up by repeated castings onto a single target, but
all effects of it can be removed by Healing the victim.

===============================================================================

----
Warp
----
MP Cost: 4
Targets: N/A

Automatically takes the party back to the last door you walked through.

===============================================================================

-----
Psych
-----
MP Cost: 0
Targets: Singular

If a spell caster is targetted by this spell, they will lose some of their
Magic Points to the caster, who will absorb the taken away Magic points into
their own pool of avilable Magic Points.  This spell appears to work best after
the spell caster's Magic Points are lower (leaving more room for absorbed Magic
Points), but it is not a requirement for large Magic point thefts.

===============================================================================

-----
Drain
-----
MP Cost: 18
Targets: Singular

This spell will remove Hit Points from the target and deposit them into the Hit
Point total of the spell caster.  This is like Psych in how it tends to work
better when the Hit Points of the caster are lower (leaving more room to
deposit the taken Hit Points).  However, one warning to all of you reading;
NEVER cast this spell upon an undead enemy because they have the special
ability to reverse the spell process (they take the Hit Points from the
caster).  This is due to the fact that they are really the reanimated dead, so
they have no life to steal from (hence the reversal of the soell effects).

===============================================================================

----
Weak
----
MP Cost: 25
Targets: Singular

This spell will take a targets Hit Points down to single digits if the spell is
successful in connecting.  Although it is rarely successful on more powerful
enemies, it will work on the Drak Dragon that the Dark Elf transfroms into.

===============================================================================

-----
Fatal
-----
MP Cost: 35
Targets: Singular

A spell that will immediately swoon the target if it connects.  However, this
spell will rarely work and thusly is a big gamble.  It also does not work at
all on undead enemies since they are already dead and can not have their life
snuffed out.



X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X
      Call Magic
X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X

This is a special type of magic that only Rydia can use (both the young and
mature versions of her).  This section is dedicated to the special mosters that
can be summoned to attack on behalf of the Caller Rydia.  An added bonus to
these summons to go along with the great strength of some of the monster
attacks is the fact that these monsters totally ignore the Wall spell defense!

-------
Chocobo
-------
MP Cost: 7
Targets: Singular

This rather weak Call spell will actually be quite powerful for the early
portion of the game.  This attack will deal about 200 Hit Points of damage to
one target, plus it is non-elemental so no loss of attack power because of type
of enemy.

===============================================================================

----
Mist
----
MP Cost: 20
Targets: All

This attack wil call a Mist Dragon to shoot it's spray at all enemies.
However, this is not a water or ice attack, so the type of enemy will not
affect the overall damage.  Also, the lower the Hit Points of Rydia, the more
damage that will be dealt by the beast.

===============================================================================

-----
Shiva
-----
MP Cost: 30
Targets: All

This is an Ice elemental attack that is somewhere between Ice2 and Ice3 in
power.  Most effectively used against fire enemies and some cave-dwelling
enemies.

heaving ground.


-Now to look at the summons that can be won by proving to the monsters that you
 deserve to have the right to call them to battle.


-----
Sylph
-----
MP Cost: 25
Targets: Singular/All

This Call is earned by completing the Sylph Cave side-quest.

This spell is a unique attack for a few reasons.  It starts as a Drain spell
being cast against one opponent, followed by the Sylphs spreading the Hit
Points removed from the target over the party members (a group filling Drain
spell essentially).  Another thing about this spell that is unique is that an
undead enemy can be drained successfully with this spell!

===============================================================================

-----
Asura
-----
MP Cost: 50
Targets: All

This Call is earned by defeating Asura in battle.

Asura will appear to cast one of three possible spells on your party: Life1 on
all party members, Cure3 on all party members, or Cure4 on all party members.
There is no way to control which one happens, so it is a spell that should be
used if you are desperately in need of healing, with your White Wizard being
unable to do so fast enough.

===============================================================================

-----
Levia
-----
MP Cost: 50
Targets: All

This Call is earned by defeating Leviathan in battle.

Leviathan will appear to send a large wall of waves crashing into your
opposition to cause severe damage to them.  Since it is a water attack, no
elemental type will have a strength against it to lessen the damage.

===============================================================================

----
Odin
----
MP Cost: 45
Targets: All

This Call is earned by defeating Odin in battle.

Odin has a massive sword that he will try to use to cleave the enemy in half
with.  This attack will not always connect, but when it does, the fight is
over.  This feature does not work on Bosses, but it will help against Monsters
hiding in Treasure Chests.

===============================================================================

-----
Baham
-----
MP Cost: 60
Targets: All

This Call is earned by defeating Bahamut in battle.

Bahamut has an unbelievably strong attack called MegaNuke, which will strike
your opposition with an uincredible amount of damage (in the thousands of Hit
Points removed).


-Now a look at the Call spells that can be won through battle with specific
 enemies to get an item that will teach the summon to Rydia.

===============================================================================

---
Imp
---

MP Cost: 1
Targets: Singular

===============================================================================

----
Bomb
----
MP Cost: 10
Targets: Singular

Win this Call by defeating a Grenade or Balloon on the Moon.

weak overall.

===============================================================================

----

A somewhat powerful summon, it will help you out until you get Leviathan to

Targets: DOES NOT EXIST!

You can not win this from a Cocatris DESPITE some FAQs saying so!  It is a FFIV

Ninja Magic
X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X

This magic is for exclusive use by Edge.  These are spells that cost a fair
amount of Magic points, but they are powerful and usually quite effective in
their purposes.  Although few in number, they will prove to be quite valuable
in your journey.

-----

-----
MP Cost: 15

damage on the opposition.  This spell is very effective against ice enemies and

===============================================================================

---
Pin
---
MP Cost: 5
Targets: Singular

This spell is very similar to a Hold spell, and it will cause any enemy
successfully ensnared by it to be rendered immobile.  It is not a sure thing,
and it does work much better against weaker enemies (does not work on Boss
fights).

===============================================================================

-----

physical attacks that are directed at him.

*******************************************************************************
6.) Character Information
*******************************************************************************

!!!***WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD***!!!

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
        CECIL
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Class: Dark Knight

Abilities: Cecil uses Fight to attack one opponent at a time with his
proficient use of his Sword.  Cecil also has the ability to use Items while
engaged in battle.

Story: Cecil starts off the game as the Commander of the most powerful
nation's Air Force (the Red Wings of Baron).  He has proudly served his
country, but the King asks him and the rest of the Red Wings to commit an act
that is not only suspect in the nature of it, but also nothing more than
brutality and pillaging.  After carrying out the deed, Cecil voices his
opinions and loses his command.  He is sent out from Baron to deliver a
package for the King, along with his good friend Kain the Dragoon.  He then
enters into a journey that changes not only himself, but the world as well.

Class: Paladin

Abilites: Cecil retains his Sword using abilities, but he gains access to
many more choices than he ever had before to hurt the opposition with his
superior technique.  White Magic becomes a small part of his arsenal as Cecil
learns a few low level spells to aid his friends.  Cover allows Cecil to take
damage for other party members who are in the back row from physical attacks.
Cecil can still use tiems as well.

Story: Cecil goes to Mount Ordeals along with a few others to see if he can
attain the Power of Light.  He succeeds by banishing the darkness within him,
giving him new powers and a new lease on life.  He is now ready to confront
the evil of Golbez and his minions, as well as help the people of his world.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
        CID
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Class: Engineer

Abilites: Cid is an extremely powerful man from his physical work building
Airships, and his use of Hammers as weapons allow him to deliver powerful
blows to all enemies.  Peep is Cid's special ability that allows him to
examine the enemy to reveal their Hit Point maximum as well as their current
amount of Hit Points as well as as weaknesses that are inherit to the enemy.
Cid may also use Items.

Story: The Airship designer for Baron and a good friend of Cecil, he rebels
against the King using his Airships for evil and ends up in prison.  He will
appear in the Throne Room just after Cecil, Yang, Tellah, and the twins
Palom and Parom have destroyed Kainazzo (the fake King).  He will remain
with Cecil until leaving to re-outfit the Enterprise (an Airship).  He will
save the team one more time, but then sacrifices himself to close up the
crater between the overworld and the underworld.  He will then do more work
on your Airships periodically so you can do what you need to, but he will
never again join you in battle as he is in bad health from his noble
sacrifice.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
        EDGE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Class: Ninja

Abilities: Edge can Fight with both hands equally well, so he uses two
swords per attack on the enemy.  Edge can also Dart weaponry at the enemy to
cause great damage with the thrown Swords, Spears, Knives, and Throwing
Stars (this cause the weapon to disappear from your inventory though).  Edge
can also use Sneak, which allows Edge to perform a steal attempt on an enemy
(often yielding some useful items).  Ninja is Edge's own personal magic to
use, and he has spells that no one else possesses (learns very few, but
useful spells).  Edge can use Items as well.

Story: Edge is the Prince of Eblan who is fighting Rubicant and his minions
along with the rest of the people of Eblan to rescue the King and Queen.
When Edge joins the party, they will find the King and Queen, but Dr. Lugae
has twisted them into vile beasts (they take their own life).  Edge then
helps to destroy Rubicant, and then decides to stay with the Cecil and the
party till the end to destroy the evil that masterminded the death of his
beloved parents.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
        EDWARD
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Class: Bard

Abilities: Edward can use his musical abilities to send concentrated waves
of energy out to hurt enemies while in a Fight.  Edward can Sing to have a
miriad of effects including: Sleep, Stop, and Charm on his enemies with his
beautiful singing voice.  Edward can also Hide from enemies if things are
getting too intense for the somewhat fragile musician.  Edward can use Items
as well.

Story: Edward is actually a Bard in disguise as he is really the Prince of
Damycan.  When he brought Tellah's daughter Anna to his castle, he
inadvertantly led to her dying at the hands of Golbez and the Red Wings.
Edward becomes very timid and sorrow filled as a result, and battles these
problems throughout his travels.  He too is lost in the attack by Leviathan,
but he will return a couple of times indirectly to help the party out when
things look their bleakest.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
        FUSOYA
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Class: Lunar

Abilities: FuSoYa can fight with Staffs, Rods, Knives, and Bow and Arrows,
but he is not a physical powershouse (although he can do a fair amount of
damage).  FuSoYa has the greatest command of both White Magi and Black
Magic, so mush so that he knows all the Black Magic spells including the
legendary Meteo and tall the White Spells including the powerful White
spell!  FuSoYa can use items as well.

Story: Along with the rest of the Lunarians, his people left their planet
when it was destroyed in an astrological disaster.  They journeyed to Earth
to live with it's people, but the people of Earth were still evolving and

the Lunarians decided to build a new moon for themselves to live in as they
slept until Earth was ready to recieve them.  FuSoYa was charged with

watching over their slumber, but one Lunarian named Zemus would not rest,
and he then tries to set things in motion to make him the power of the
Universe!  FuSoYa joins your party to stop Zemus, and then leaves after
helping thwart the attack on Earth by Zemus's minions to go after Zemus
himself (along with Golbez).


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
        KAIN
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Class: Dragoon

Abilites: Kain can attacks enemies with his Spears, Axes, or Swords (he is
quite versatile in weapon use).  Kain can land a more powerful blow with his
Spears when he uses his Jump coomand to leap high into the air, and then
drop in right on top of the enemy moments later (this takes longer to pull
off than a Fight attack but just a little bit, but is worth it for the extra
damage it deals).  Kain can of course use Items in battle.

Kain, the Commander of the Dragoon Knights of Baron, comes to his friends
aid when the King is raging mad at Cecil, and he ends up tied into the
mission that Cecil has been assigned.  He and Cecil set out together at the
start of the journey, but Kain will walk a much different and separate path
than that of his good firend Cecil.  Kain will come in and out of the party,
and he will not always be the most trustworthy of allies due to the
influence Golbez holds on this warrior.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       PALOM
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Class: Black Wizard

Abilites: He can Fight with Staffs mainly, but he is extremely weak as he is
both a child and a Wizard.  Black Magic is the power that this young but
gifted child wields with the greatest proficiency (learns spell at a rapid
rate).  Twin is the greatest attack that Palom possesed, and it is a weaker
version of Meteo (Comet) or Nuke (Flare) when used with his twin sister.
Palom can also use Items.

Story: Along with his sister Parom, Palom is sent along with Cecil to Mount
Ordeals to spy on Cecil.  After Cecil succeeds to change his ways, the twins
decide to accompany Cecil back to Baron where they help Cecil to rescue Yang
and Cid as well as the entire Baron population from the Fiend of Water
Kainazzo.  However, when Kainazzo attempts to crush the party in a hallway,
both Palom and Parom sacrifice themselves by turning to Stone to stop the
advancing walls, thus sparing the party from certain death.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
        PAROM
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Class: White Wizard

Abilities: She can Fight with Rods mainly, but she is extremely weak as she
is both a child and a Wizard.  White Magic is the power that this young but
gifted child wields with the greatest proficiency (learns spells at a rapid
rate).  Twin is the greatest attack that Palom possesed, and it is a weaker
version of Meteo (Comet) or Nuke (Flare) when used with her twin brother.
Parom can also use Items.

Story: Along with her brother Palom, Parom is sent along with Cecil to Mount
Ordeals to spy on Cecil.  After Cecil succeeds to change his ways, the twins
decide to accompany Cecil back to Baron where they help Cecil to rescue Yang
and Cid as well as the entire Baron population from the Fiend of Water
Kainazzo.  However, when Kainazzo attempts to crush the party in a hallway,
both Parom and Palom sacrifice themselves by turning to Stone to stop the
advancing walls, thus sparing the party from certain death.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
        ROSA
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Class: White Wizard

Abilities: Rosa can Fight with Staffs and Bows and Arrows, but this command
should be used.  Rosa has an excellent grasp of White magic, eventually
leading to her knowing all the spells that White Magic offers.  Rosa's Aim
command gives her 100 % accuracy when using her Bow and Arrows, which is an
excellent thing as Bow and Arrows are rather inaccurate weapons in all.
Rosa can use Items as well.

Story: The girlfriend of Cecil, she leaves Baron to try and follow Cecil
when he heads off with the Package for Mist.  She ends up in Kaipo where she
falls with a fever that only the SandRuby can cure.  After Cecil cures her,
Rosa joins his side to help him until Golbez takes her during an assault on
Fabul.  She is later rescued from Golbez, and she remains a faithful
companion with Cecil to the very end of the journey.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       RYDIA
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Class: Caller

Abilities: Although Rydia can use staffs, rods, knives, whips, and Bow and
Arrows to Fight, she will not contribute a lot of physical damage to your
foes because of her weak attack power.  Rydia has command of both White
Magic and Black Magic when she joins up, and she knows many low level spells
in each category (makes her very versatile as attacker and defender).  Rydia
also has the exclusive ability to Call summoned monsters, which she can use
to attack enemies (these attacks can be VERY damaging).  Rydia can use Items
as well.

Story: Rydia is the unfortunate victim and survivor of an unintended attack
made by Cecil and Kain on behalf of Baron.  After fighting the two off, she
passes out and Cecil takes her with him.  Cecil defends her from Baron's
troops and she will join his journey.  She remains a faithful companion
until a most unfortunate accident with Leviathan tears her from the group.

Class: Caller

Abilities: Although Rydia can use staffs, rods, knives, whips, and Bow and
Arrows to Fight, she will not contribute a lot of physical damage to your
foes because of her weak attack power.  Rydia comes to you without her White
Magic abilities, but with an increased power in the Black Magics (she can
learn the most powerful spells).  Rydia has even more monsters to Call upon
with her summoning magic.  Rydia can use Items as well.

Story: Although she was swallowed by Leviathan, he brought here to the land
of the Summoned Monsters where she trained rigorously along with some of the
most powerful summoned monsters.  She returns to save the party from almost
certain doom at the hands of Golbez, and she brings with her a more advanced
age than that of the child she once was (due to the increased speed in which
time flows in Land of the Summoned Monsters).  She will then remain with
Cecil and the party to the very end of the journey.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       TELLAH
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Class: Sage

Abilities: Tellah can Fight with staffs, rods, and knives, but this is not
his true strength so he does little damage.  Tellah does have command White
Magic and Black Magic spells, so he can be both attacker and defender.
Tellah can use Items as well.

Story: An older man who was once the most powerful spell caster in the
world, he has forgotten much of what he knew (he retains some of his
knowledge).  He meets Cecil between Kaipo and Damycan, and realizes that
Cecil could help him get by the monster blocking his way as he is trying to
get his daughter back from a Bard.  Cecil and Tellah are too late as the Red
Wings bomb Damycan and kill Tellah's daughter under the command of Golbez.
Tellah leaves to try and get Golbez, but returns again to the group where he
remembers all his old spells (which is nearly all the White Magic and Black
Magic), but he learns the most powerful spell ever in Meteo!  He is so bent
on the destruction of Golbez that he ends up killing himself while using
Meteo to badly injure Golbez.  Tellah dies soon after, and realizes
vengeance is never the answer.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
        YANG
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Class: Karate Master

Abilities: Yang Fights with both hands using weapons called Claws (which
have special effects), dealing out significant damage due to his large
strength ability.  Yang also has a Kick ability, which hits all enemies in
the battle, but divides the potential strength evenly between the enemies
(without the special effects of his Claws).  Yang can use Items as well.

Story: While training at the Summit of Mount Hobs with the special forces of
Fabul, Golbez's lackies appear and decimate the special forces.  Yang will
destroy most of the attackers just as Cecil and company arrive, but when the
big bad lackey attacks, Cecil will jump in.  Yang will join the group and
return to Fabul to defend it from attack, but the group loses.  Yang is then
lost in the Leviathan attack, but then rjoins the team in Baron (once he
gets some sense knocked into him).  He will remain with the team until he
makes the ultimate sacrifice to save the Dwarves...

7.) Boss Compendium
*******************************************************************************


######################################
D. Mist
######################################

H.P.: 450

Gold: 200

Exp.: 700

To win this fight, you will start off by attacking with Cecil and jumping
with Kain to deal out as much damage as possible.  The Mist Dragon will
attack periodically, so if the Hit Points of either Cecil or Kain drops
below 100, you may want to use a Cure1 to heal them.  When the D. Mist
"Turns to mist", you should just Parry (press RIGHT on the Directional Pad
to show the option) until the message "Now, get ready to fight" appears (at
which point the D. Mist will reassemble).  If you did not wait for the D.
Mist to reassemble, you will get blasted for a out a 30 Hit point loss with
ColdMist (counter attack for every attack you do).  Continue using your
attacks, and the D. Mist should not have time to turn into a mist cloud
again as it will be defeated!


######################################
Officer     Soldier
######################################

H.P.: 200   H.P.: 25

Gold: 80    Gold: 55

Exp.: 400   Exp.: 160

In this battle, there are two ways to go about winning.  The easier way to
win is to take down the three Soldiers as fast as you can, which will cause
the coward Officer to retreat because his bodyguards are gone.  The other
method takes longer, Cecil takes a beating, and it can be annoying, but if
you take the Officer out before finishing off the final Soldier, you will
receive more Gold and Experience.


######################################
Octomamm
######################################

H.P.: 700

Gold: 500

Exp.: 1200

Tentacle

H.P.: 250

This tentacled monster will attack you repeatedly while you take it down,
one tentacle at a time.  To beat this baddie, attack with Cecil's newly
acquired Darkness Sword to really hit hard (for around 185 Hit Points per
hit), and cast Lit-1 with both Tellah and Rydia (occasionally taking time
out to cast a Cure spell when needed).  When Octomamm is knocked down to
two tentacles, it will slow down, and attack less often.  Once it is down to
a lone tentacle, you just need to hit it for 700 Hit Points, and it will
fall into the depths permanently!


######################################
Antlion
######################################

H.P.: 1000

Gold: 800

Exp.: 1500

For this battle, if you use regular attacks on the Antlion, he will use a
vicious counter attack on a party member for about 20 damage each time.
You have the option of attacking with all party members, followed by curing
the hurt party members, or you can just use Rydia's Call Magic to summon
Chocobo to deal about 150 to 200 damage each time (with no Counter used
against you).  If her Magic runs out before the Antlion dies, start using
conventional attacks with Cecil to finish it off (it will be near death).
Once you win, the SandRuby is yours!


######################################
WaterHag
######################################

H.P.: 60 (three hits in actuality)

Gold: 100

Exp.: 800

Choose to fight the whole time, and Anna (her ghost) will offer her
Encouragement until Edward has finished the WaterHag off!


######################################
MomBomb
######################################

H.P.: 1500 (to cause metamorphisis)

Gold: 0

Exp.: 0

You first step in this fight is to start taking this MomBomb down.  Attack
with Cecil, Edward, and Yang (his Fight, not Kick), while Rydia and Rosa
Cure wounds while throwing their attacks in (Rosa should Aim and Rydia
should Call Chocobo).  When the MomBomb starts to grow, stop using magic
attacks, and then make sure your party has as many Hit Points as possible
because the MomBomb will explode after a short time!  This will lead into
an all new battle...


######################################
Bomb        Grey Bomb
######################################

H.P: 50     H.P.: 100

Gold: 240   Gold: 150

Exp.: 370   Exp.: 450

You will be penalised about 60 to 80 Hit points on each member of your team,
so get them to Cure each other up as fast as possible (especially Ryida,
Rosa, and Edward with their low Hit Points).  Once you have done that, get
Edward to attack the Bombs (he should be able to charm them, and thus add
attacks to your side while lessening theirs), get Cecil, Rosa and Yang to
double team a Grey Bomb, and have Rydia Call a Chocobo to kill a Grey Bomb
off herself.  If done correctly, none of the opposing forces will be able
to get their Explosion attacks off, and you will win easily!


######################################
Fabul Battle
######################################

- General     Fighter


H.P.: 320  H.P.: 65

Gold: 155  Gold: 100


Exp.: 608  Exp.: 410

Take the fighters out quickly with your attacks, and the General will
quickly retreat, giving you the win!  The other option is to kill the
General first, and then the Fighters, but this will take longer, and more of
your Hit Points, which are only refillable during battle in this melee.


- Weeper      Imp Captain   WaterHag

H.P.: 100   H.P.: 37      H.P.: 48

Gold: 30    Gold: 20      Gold: 80

Exp.: 120   Exp.: 189      Exp.: 180

Get Yang to Kick, Edward to attack the WaterHag, and set Cecil to attacking
the Weeper.  When the Weeper is all that remains, set all three of your
party to attacking it for the victory!


- Gargoyle

H.P.: 160

Gold: 100

Exp.: 320

Just attack to quickly knock this sneak of an enemy out.


- Weeper      Imp Captain   WaterHag (again, same as above)

- General    Fighter (again, same as above)


######################################
Milon          Ghast
######################################


H.P.: 3100     H.P.: 170

Gold: 3300     Gold: 0

Exp.: 3800     Exp.: 0

Milon will appear with 4 Ghasts ready to back him up.  Since Cecil's sword
is utterly useless on Undead enemies, get him to focus his attacks on the
Fiend of Earth.  Palom and Parom should use their Twin attacks (Flare and
Comet), and Tellah should use Fire1 and Cure2 when necessary.  Make sure to
keep the Twin's Hit Points up to end this battle quickly!


######################################
Milon Z
######################################

H.P.: 3000

Gold: 3000

Exp.: 4000

He will attack from behind, so it is good that you have already switched
your party's positions around to compensate.  This time he has no helpers,
so just have Cecil attack Milon, have Palom and Parom use Twin attacks, and
then have Tellah act as your Cure man as well as Heal the poison that Milon
Z will inflict upon your team.  You can also use Cure spells to harm Milon Z
because he is Undead.  Not a difficult battle, but his frequent poisoning of
your team can be irritating.


######################################
D. Knight
######################################

H.P.: 1000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 0

You have two options for fighting this inner evil of Cecil.  you can do the
preferred method of parrying and using your recently acquired Cure magic
until the Dark Knight quits his attacks (this is the easiest method), or you
can attack and use Cure2 times to beat the 1000 Hit Points out of the Dark
Knight (exceptionally difficult to do).  If you choose the beat him up
method, and you bought the Paladin Shield before coming to Mount Ordeals,
go into Item on your first turn, press up to see Cecil's hands, select the
empty spot, and then go down the list to put the Paladin Shield on him to
increase his defense.  Either method works, but choose one that you feel the
most comfortable doing.


######################################
Guard
######################################

H.P: 200

Gold: 500

Exp.: 720

Attack with Cecil, use Twin with Palom and Porom, and cast Size on anyone
who the guards shrink in size with Tellah.  Not a tough battle, but you will
likely have at least one midget on your team after the battle.


######################################
Yang (Karate)
######################################

H.P.: 4000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 0

Have Cecil attack, Palom and Parom should use Twin repeatedly, and Tellah
should keep your health high while attacking with hard hitting spells like
Virus, and level 3 elemental spells (Ice, Fire, Lit).  It is also a good
idea for Tellah to cast Size on anyone who is still small front he Guard
battle.  Yang will use regular attacks, as well as his Kick (this does
considerable damage to each party member).  Just make sure to keep the Twin
attacks coming, and you will romp to victory.

Baigan has three parts to him, his Left Arm, his Right Arm, and Baigan
himself.  You will need to kill the Baigan pat before you can kill the Arms
off (Baigan wil continually revive them).  Use the Twin attack for Palom and
Parom, attack with Cecil and Yang, and Tellah will be a healer and Ether
distributor for the Twins.  Baigan has an extra trick he can use, but only
if he is prodded to do so.  Any magic attack against him, with the exception
of the Twin attacks, will cause him to cast Wall on the Baigan part of the
Boss.  After he does this, no magic will be able to penentrate his wall
(including Twin attacks).  Be sure to not use any magic directly on Baigan,
because this will greatly complicate the battle.  Otherwsie, Baigan will use
physical attacks only, along with the occasional Recover to cause his Arms
to reappear.  His Arms can use Vampire (a drain spell) and Entangle (a Hold
spell).

Kainazzo
######################################

H.P.: 4000

Gold: 4000

Exp.: 5500

Kainazzo has two different attacks poses.  I will give strategies to fight
both forms.

REGULAR

Attack Kainazzo with Cecil and Yang, Twin attack with Palom and Parom, and
use Tellah as part healer, part Ice3 caster.  Kainazzo is weaker against Ice
when he is in this form.

WATER GATHERING

When he has built a wall of water around him, the attacks stay the same for
every one but Tellah.  Get him to use Lit-3 on Kainazzo.  Kainazzo is weaker
against lightning when water is gathering, and it will also disperse the
water, sending Kainazzo back to regular form.

Kainazzo is rather easy to defeat, but be sure to watch out for his Wave
attack, which will remove over 100 Hit Points from each of your party
members.  You should be able to wipe this guy out quickly, and with minimal
fuss.

Although you can win this fight with some creative team work, it will gain
you nothing.  Instead, just attack him as he wipes your party out.

He will start out in his Dark Elf form, but he will quickly transform into
a more powerful form in the Dark Dragon.  Have your three muscle heads
(Cecil, Yang, and Cid) attack while Tellah casts Virus for attacking, and
Cure spells for healing.  This form has a better command of magic than the
weakened Dark Elf did, so keep your Hit points high.  He also has a brutal
D. Breath attack that removes anywhere from 125 to 250 Hit points per
person.

If you want to win this battle REALLY EASILY, just wait for the
transformation to occur so he is the Dark Dragon, and have Tellah cast Weak.
It should hit the Dark Dragon, causing it's Hit Points to drop below 10
total, making your next attack deadly to it!

These three are the infamous Magus Sisters, and they all are quite different
from one another.  Sandy is tall and skinny, Cindy is short and stalky, and
Mindy is tiny.  While all three remain in the battle, the Sisters will use
their Delta Attack on your party.  The following bit will look at what each
Sister does with their attacks:

Valvalis
######################################


H.P.: 6000

Gold: 5500

Exp.: 9500

Valvalis will have two forms for you to fight you in.  When she is wrapped
up in her hair and spinning like a whirlwind, you will need to have Kain try
a Jump attack to make her stop.  When she is in a whirlwind, it is extremely
hard to hit her, and when you do, the damage will be less than usual.  When
she is in her normal position, she takes a lot more damage.  She will use
Weak periodically, so Cure whoever lost their Hit Points quickly so you will
not lose them on the next attack.

You will be faced with 3 Cals and 3 Brenas, who will attack you physically
the whole time.  Start off by whacking 2 of the Brena (the ornage coloured
dolls), and then start working on the three Cals in the back row.  Attack
with Cecil and Yang, Jump with Kain, and Rosa will do her usual part time
Cure, part time attack methods.  If you follow this method, you should not
have to face the following enemy.  Be advised that time is also a factor in
this happening...


######################################

The Calbrena will not only attack you physically (with more power than it's
smaller counterparts), but it will also use attacks like Glance (Charm
Spell).  Keep Cecil and Yang pounding away, have Kain jump like a maniac,
and have Rosa keep the Hit Points high as she hits her Charmed team mates
with an Arrow so they regain their senses.


######################################
Golbez
######################################

H.P.: 22000

Gold: 11000

Exp.: 20000

A tall task to say the least.  Start by getting Kain into the air as fast as
you can, and have everyone else attack Golbez.  Golbez will then start to
laugh as he casts Hold Gas on your whole party, causing them to be
paralized!  He will then summon Shadow (a large dragon) who immediately
starts using a "Demolish" attack, which he uses to wipe out Yang, Rosa, and
Kain (only if he is on the ground at the time of the attacks).  Golbez is
all ready to Demolish Cecil, but suddenly a D. Mist will appear to wipe out
Shadow and hurt Golbez for around 900 Hit Points!  Golbez will be in shock
at this turn of events, and a mysterious voice will say you can move now to
Cecil as the paralisis is Healed.  This is the point that Rydia will run in
to join her team!

Now that we have a new fight scenario, here is the battle plan!  Have Cecil
attack and have Rydia call Titan.  If you have Kain still, get him to Jump.
Cecil should also be ready to cast Cure2 if Rydia starts to get low on Hit
Points.  The fight will not require you to remove 22000 Hit Points from
Golbez as he seems shaken over the D. Mist incident.  After one Call Magic
attack, Golbez will fall!

After some initial problems with Balnab being unable to move and attacking
his creator, Balnab will turn to attacking your party with some ferocity.

Dr. Lugae will not do a whole lot in this battle.  Attack Balnab with Cecil
and Yang, Jump with Kain against Dr. Lugae, Rydia should cast a second level
elemental spell against the good docter (Ice2, Lit2, Fire2), and Rosa should
Aim at Lugae when no Curing is required.  If you defeat Balnab first, you
will have to fight...

Balnab-Z is a slgihtly stronger version of Balnab (which is being operated
by Dr. Lugae).  Cecil and Yang should attack, Kain should Jump, Rydia should
use second level elemental spells (Ice2, Lit2, Fire2), and Rosa should Cure
her teammates the whole time.

Dr. Lugae
######################################

Exp.: 15000

Dr. Lugae will quickly transform into a horrific metallic skeletal monster
right before your very eyes!  He will use a Poison Spell to cause minimal
damage to your team, but it will also cause your whole team to be poisoned
(they will drop Hit Points every so often).  He will also attempt to use
Gas, which is a Sleep spell (it rarely works however).  One of his offensive
attack is Laser (as well as the less powerful Beam), which is a deadly
attack for lower Hit Point members of your team like Rydia and Rosa (it does
somewhere in the neighbourhood of 700 to 800 damage).  Dr Lugae also uses
Emission, a low power fire attack, which he usually follows up with Heal on
all your teammates (curing all the status effects he inflicts upon you).
Cecil and Yang should attack, Kain should Jump, Rydia should use second
level elemental spells (Ice2, Lit2, Fire2), and Rosa should Cure her
teammates the whole time.  If someone falls down, let Rosa bring them back
with Life1, and have the next person in line use a Cure2 on her (Yang, Kain,
Rydia) or cast Cure2 (Cecil).

Although Edge's parents have been horribly mutated, Edge will still try and
reason with them.  This fight does not require any attacks from your side,
so just use regular attacks to conserve Magic Points, and be sure to not let
anyone swoon.  After a while, Edge's parents will realize what they have
become, and they will then banish themselves from this world to Hades
(despite Edge pleading for an alternative).



######################################
Rubicant
######################################


H.P.: 25000

Gold: 7000

Exp.: 25000

As you might expect, Rubicant is weak against Ice/Water attacks, so they are
excellent ways to bring him down quickly.  However, when his cloak is
closed, Ice Spells will heal him.  When his cloak is closed, hold off on Ice
Spells (as well as the Shiva Call spell) and use regular attacks.

Rubicant uses an incredibly powerful magic spell by the name of Glare which
does over 1000 Hit Points of damage easily (Revive/Cure the victim).
Rubicant will also use Fire2 on the whole party (it will do about 100 to 150
Hit Point damage to each member).  To beat this monster easily, have Cecil
attack, Kain Jump, Edge Dart extra swords and Spears (as well as Flood with
his Ninja ability), Rydia should Call Shiva, and Rosa will be the Curing and
Reviving member of the team.  Do not be afraid to use a Life on a fallen
member with someone else so Rosa can then Cure them back to full health
right after.


######################################
Trap Door
######################################

H.P.: 5000

Gold: 4500

Exp.: 31100

Trap Doors are incredibly mean fights as they have one attack that has two
parts: Search (targets a team member), and then Disrupt (kills your
character off immediately).  This is all that a Trap Door does, which is
extremely hard on your Magic Points for Life1 spells and your Life Potions.
Hit the Trap Door with everything you have, and if you do it fast enough,
you will kill it.  However, if you fail in this endeavor, the Trap Door

will morph into some other monster which you must then kill.


######################################
EvilWall
######################################

H.P.: 19000

Gold: 8000

Exp.: 23000

The EvilWall is a slowly advancing menace that will attack with the

following methods: physical attacks, Petrify (if used on one team member
enough, they will solidify into a statue), and once it draws near enough it
will use Crush (a spell that instant kills whoever recieves the casting of
it).  The EvilWall will start off with a couple pre-emptive physical
attacks, and then following that it will continue physical attacks while
mixing in Petrify spells.  Have Cecil attack, Kain Jump, Edge attack and/or
throw Swords/Ninja Stars, Rydia cast Virus, and Rosa should be sure that no
one drops too low on Hit Points.  If the EvilWall reaches the point where it
is close enough to use Crush, you had better hope it is near enough to death
to be killed quickly.


######################################
Asura
######################################

H.P.: 23000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 20000

Asura has many faces, and she will use her moves based on which is visible.
She will often cast Cure spells at level 3and even 4 (!) and Life spells,
but there is a way to stop her.  Cast Wall on her to block those spells, and
that way she can no longer Cure herself.  She will also use physical
attacks, but her reflected Cure spells will likely keep their Hit Points
high.  Have Cecil and Edge attack, have Rydia use call magic to summon
Titan, and have Rosa split her time between Aim and using Cure2's and
Cure3's from your inventory when needed (she will also cast Wall on Asura on
her first turn).  If your party becomes weak, just let Asure cast Cure
spells until your entire party is refilled, and then attack anew.


######################################
Leviathan
######################################

H.P.: 35000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 28000

Leviathan will open with his big attack, which is a Big Wave, so you start
at a disadvantage.  Then he will cover back up, and he will use Ice2 until

he is ready to open up for his Big Wave attack once more.  He will also
throw in physical attacks throughout this pattern, so keep your Hit Points
high.  Have Cecil attack, Edge should use Ninja Magic (Blitz) and switch to
Darts and attacks once his Magic Points run low, Rydia should use Virus or
Lit2, and Rosa should keep everyone well Cured with Cure2 and Cure3.  this
battle is not overly difficult, especially since your levels are at least in
the mid thirties because you could beat Asura.


######################################
Odin
######################################

H.P.: 20500

Gold: 0

Exp.: 18000

Odin has powerful physical attacks, so you need to be aware of your Hit
Point stats at all times.  In addition to this, Odin has a time limit on the
fight where he will suddenly do a viscious eushing attack that is guaranteed
to wipe your party out!  Have Cecil attack, Edge should use Ninja Magic
(Blitz really hurts Odin), Rydia should use Indra once and then start using
Lit2, and Rosa should Cure2/Cure3 whoever needs the assistance.  If you fail
to beat Odin, raise your levels slightly, and return to try again.


######################################
Behemoth
######################################


H.P.: 16000

Gold: 65000

Exp.: 58700

These guys are means customers that hit you EXTREMELY hard.  This guy has a
special ability to counter attack every physical attack thrown at him, so be
sure to have high Hit Points before attacking (he throws the shots around
randomly).  You also need to watch out for his Storm attack, which appears
to be in retailiation to the casting of a powerful spell. Have Cecil and
Edge attack, have Rydia cast Virus once to start the beast's Hit Points
draining and then she should use Cure2's on hurt people, FuSoYa should use
Nuke or White (or Meteo if you really want to) as well as Cure some damage,
and Rosa should Cure the whole time to assure your victory.

Also note that the Behemoth rarely attacks when he does not have a swing
taken at him, so stop attacking if you are badly damaged so you can refill
your hit Points before you resume pounding on the great beast.


######################################
Bahamut
######################################

H.P.: 37000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 35000

Bahamut has one attack only, but it is one powerful blast.  It is called
MegaNuke, and it does a massive amount of damage to your team.  Their is a
way to turn this attack back onto Bahamut however, and this is achieved by
doing the following actions.  Cecil and Edge should attack, Rydia should
Call Leviathan, and Osa and FuSoYa will cast Wall on their teammates on at a
time.  After the MegaNuke lands, you might have missed Walling in one team
member, but the MegaNuke will bounce back to badly damage Bahamut.  Then you
just need to wear him down as he countdowns to agian MegaNuke himself.  With
this strategy, you will not have a hard time with this battle.

Elements

H.P.: 104,000

Gold: 10000

Exp.: 62500

You will have to fight each incarnation of the Four Fiends once again
(thanks to Zemus bringing them back), so this section will have strategies
for each opponent.  Each fiend will show up around every 26,000 Hit Points
damage dealt out by your team.

Milon-Z will use strong physical attacks and Curse for the most part, so
just be sure to keep your Hit Points high.  Cecil and Edge should attack,
FuSoYa should use Fire3 and Cure the team, Rydia should summon Bahamut, and
Rosa should Cure the team and cast Cure4 on Milon-Z (it will do around 5000
Hit Points damage to the undead being).

Rubicant is next, and he uses Fire2, Fire3, and Galre as he fights you (none
of these do a whole lot of damage).  Cecil should attack, Edge should use
Ninja Magic to cast Flood, FuSoYa should cast Ice3 as should Rydia (if she
has it) or summon Leviathan, and Rosa should keep the Hit Points high with
Cure3.

Kainazzo is third in the order, and he will sue physical attacks as well as
Big Wave (this does about 500 Hit Points damage to each member of your
team).  Cecil should attack, Edge should use Ninja Magic (Blitz is the
best), FuSoYa should use Lit3, Rydia should Lit3 (if she has it) or summon
Indra, and Rosa should continue to Cure the party.

Valvalis brings up the final line of the Four Fiend offense, and she comes
using Big Wave (again for around 500 Hit Points damage to each team member),
as well as Ray (Petrify), Storm (Weak), and physical attacks.  Have Cecil
attack, Edge should use Ninja Magic (Blitz is suggested), FuSoYa should use
Lit3/White, Rydia should summon Bahamut, and Rosa is your designated Curing
machine.

The Four Fiends will then bemoan their losing to your party, and then you
may wish to back track a secction of the body to use a Cabin and then SAVE
in the SAVE CIRCLE before returning to the lung.  Once you pass through the
lung, you will be int eh CPU, where you will head upwards to find the CPU,
along with some defenses as it attacks!

The boss comes int three parts, all of which have unique properties.  The
Defender will spend a lot of the time just casting Remedy on the CPU at 2000
Hit Points recovered per casting.  The Attacker will use Maser (attack on
everyone for about 200 Hit Points damage each).  CPU will cast Wall on
itself at the start, meaning conventional magics will not get to it
(although Call Magic will work), and if both Attacker and Defender have been
taken down, CPU will use Globe199 (ultra-powerful attack on one person,
killing them immediately) a few times before casting Recover to bring
Attacker and Defender back.  To take the monstrosity down, take out
Defender, take out Attacker (if you want), and the pound on CPU before
repeating the cycle again.  Have Cecil and Edge attack, FuSoYa should Cure
the party as should Rosa (as well as revive team members after Globe199
attacks), and Rydia should summon Bahamut.


######################################
Pale Dim
######################################


H.P.: 27500

Gold: 0

Exp.: 59000


The Pale Dim has a good bag of ticks to call upon in this fight including:
physical attacks, Slow spell, and Quake.  Quake will only be used in
response to a high end Black Magic spell attack, but this is countered by
casting Float before the fight begins.  Have Cecil and Edge attack, Kain
should Jump, Rydia should summon Bahamut, and Rosa should Cure when needed
and attack when she has the chance by using her Aim command.


######################################
Wyvern
######################################

H.P.: 25000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 64300

The Wyvern can use MegaNuke, Wall, Nuke, and Remedy fairly frequently.  This
mean customer uses MegaNuke just like it's look alike Bahamut, but it will
begin the fight with one.  This will lay most of your party to rest (usually
leaves only one member alive).  Your first job is to get Rosa back on her
feet so she can then cast Wall on herself.  Then you should try to get
Cecil and Rydia up so you have your powerhouse hitter (Rydia with Bahamut)
and Cecil for his ability to take hits (and throw around 2500 damage at a
time).  Whenever you get a Bahamut shot in, Wyvern will respond with a
MegaNuke, and if it hits Rosa, her Wall will reflect the damage back at
Wyvern.  Edge and Kain do not contribute enough or stand up to the spells
well for you to keep reviving them.  Remember that Rosa can only be cured
with Cure2's and Cure3's from your inventory.  With a little bit of luck,
you can win this one rather easily.


######################################
Plague
######################################

H.P.: 28000

Gold: 550

Exp.: 31200

Plague will use Count (a Doom-like spell) on all your people as his first
attack (when the timer runs out, they all die) as well as using Fast on your
party members to try and run their timers down quicker.  To win, you need to
attack the whole time, so use the following techniques: Cecil should attack,
Kain should Jump, Edge should throw a Ninja Star and then attack, Rydia
should use Bahamut, and Rosa should use Aim with her powerful Artemis Arrows
equipped.  Being quick and decisive in your decisions with your party
members can often be the difference between winning and losing.


######################################
Ogopogo
######################################

H.P.: 37000

Gold: 0

Exp.: 61100

Ogopogo has a few attacks to use on your party, including: Big Wave, Blaze,
and physical attacks.  Ogopogo will begin the fight with a double shot of
Big Wave, which will take your team's Hit Points to quite low numbers (Rosa
should use Cure4 on everyone for her first move, and use Cure2 on all from
Cecil if you like to as well).  You should have Cecil attack, Kain Jump,
Edge should throw Ninja Stars, Rydia summon Bahamut or use Nuke, and have Rosa
Cure the party and use White on Ogopogo when you can (if you have it that is).
Not a particularly hard fight once you have enough Hit Points to survive the
intial attack (which you should have easily by this point).

You get to fight two D. Lunar's.  D. Lunars use physical attacks as well as
Wall to start off with.  Then they will use Virus and Remedy following this
to attack your team and Cure themselves for 2100 Hit Points.  Have Edge and
Cecil attack (his Crystal Sword does 9999 damage), Kain should jump, Rydia
should Call Bahamut, and Rosa should Aim with her arrows.  If Rosa gets to
go first for your team, cast Cure4 on one of the D. Lunars to hurt the one
you aim for about 3000 Hit Points.


######################################
Zeromus
######################################


Zeromus

H.P.: 100000+ (not sure of exact amount)

Gold: 0

Exp.: 0

Zemus has an incredible amount of attacks, and they will be listed below
with a description of what they do, how much Hit Points they remove, and
what causes each attack to occur.

Big Bang..: Used periodically by Zeromus to inflict about 1200 to 2000 Hit
            Point damage on each member of your party, followed by sapping
            your Hit Points like Virus.  It will often knock one of your
            team members down.

Black Hole: This spell will be used by Zeromus to remove Magics like Wall
            or Fast from your party.  This is not a concern as we do not
            use those in this battle.

Meteo.....: This starts to be casted when Zeromus nears his demise, and it
            hits only some of your team members most of the time.  The more
            teammates that get hit, the less damage recieved, and it still
            only deals around 800 to 1200 Hit Point damage for each member.

Nuke......: This spell will be used periodically to concentrate heavy damage
            (1000 to 1600 Hit Point damage) on a single member of your team.
            It will often knock your team member out.

Virus.....: This wicked spell will cost you about 200 to 500 Hit Point damage
            to each team member, but it has the added effect of continually
            sapping your Hit Points as time goes on.

If you use Nuke, Meteo, or White on Zemus, he will often counter with the same
spell (up to three times over) on your party (also note he can bring out a Weak
spell in place of these spell counters).  Although his spells are nowhere as
near the power that your spells are at, they will still decimate your party.
Avoid casting these spells if you wish to have an easier time winning the
ultimate battle for Mother Earth!

Your battle plan can be explained indvidually for each team member, and what
they are responsible for in this fight.

Cecil should use his first round to use the Item "Crystal", which was given
to him by Golbez.  This cause Zeromus to be a MUCH easier target to hurt.
From then on, Cecil should just attack with his Crystal Sword unless he is
needed for dire need of Curing.

Kain has one job to do, and that is to Jump keep jumping unless he has to
fedd an Item like Cure3 or an Elixer to someone.

Edge should throw the following things in this order: Spoon, Excalibur
Sword, Defense Sword,Light Sword, Gungir Spear, Drain Spear, and then throw
your large  collection of Ninja Stars.

Rydia has a mian purpose of Calling Bahamut to the battle, and she should
also call Asura if you need to gamble for a quick Cure (this should be in
desperation only).  Using Meteo or Nuke will cause unwanted side effects
(see Zermous attacks for details).

Rosa has the job of keeping the Hit Points high on the whole team.  She
should also use Life2 where applicable to revive a fallen teammate.

Start off with Cecil using the Crystal on Zeromus to weaken him by causing
his true colours to emerge!  Attack with  the strategies listed above as
Zeromus uses Big Bang, Virus, Nuke, Black Hole, and Meteo against you.

  Item Duplication Trick
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Step 1 in this process is obviously picking the item that you want to
duplicate. When you enter a battle, choose the item option (for the person who
has what you want to duplicate). Highlight and enter (A) a blank space in the
item inventory and to the intended item and enter it (A), and then exit back
out of the item menu (B). Run from the battle, and then go into the sub-screen,
where you can select the “Equip” option and go to the character who had the
duplicated item, go to the old empty slot and press A, then do the same on the
item which has been added. You have now duplicated the intended item.

  Chocobo Information
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

YELLOW CHOCOBO

These are the most common type of Chocobo, and they can be found in every
Chocobo Village you will encounter.  They will allow your party to ride on the
back of one of their kind, and the Yellow Chocobo will carry you to your
destination by going over land.  They can cross rivers, but not ocean water,
and once you get off of their back, they will run away!

BLACK CHOCOBO

The much more rare than their land tromping cousins, to the point of that they
are located in only one Chocobo Village (to the north of Torioa).  These birds
have the gift of flight, and they will give you a lift when you need it the
most.  They can only land in forest, and when they do land, they will stay put
until you get on them again, at which point they return to their village.

WHITE CHOCOBO

One of these can be found in every Chocobo Village you will come across, and if
you manage to catch one, they will refill your Magic Points.  This is really
useful on a journey when you find a village, so you can use Magic to refill
your Hit Points, and then use the White Chocobo to refill your Magic Points.

FAT CHOCOBO

Although not readily visible in a Chocobo Village (or the basement of the Dwarf
Castle), whenever you examine an area and it "smells like Chocbos", you should
use a Carrot.  This will cause the Big Chocobo to appear, and you can then
store Items as well as retrieve previously restored Items with the Big
Chococbo.

  Pink Puffs & Adamant Armor
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

WHERE TO FIND THEM

When your party is on Lunar Subterrane B5, find the room where the Treasure
Chest with the Cabin inside is.  Walk around this room to find and kill all
Pink Puffs you see.


WHY FIGHT THEM?

Although the encounter rate for a Pink Puff battle is 1-64, what they give to
you is th emost important thing.  They cam on occasion give you a Pink Tail,
which may seem insignificant, but it is incredibly great when you remember the
Tail Collecter of Silvera.


TRADE THE TAIL

Make it a point to go to Silvera to trade in your Pink Tail to get some more of
the Adamant ore you got before for trading a Rat Tail.  Since Kokkol the
Blacksmith was seeking Adamant before, it stands to reason he would like to
work on it again.


VISIT KOKKOL THE BLACKSMITH

Head underground to find Kokkol, and he will be so excited to recieve more
Adamant he will get right to work.  However, this time he can not improve your
sword any further than it is right now, so he will instead design some armor.
This Adamant Armor is supremely protective, it can be worn by all members of
your party, and it has excellent resistance to all kinds of spell types and
status effects.

  Odd "Steal and Equip" Glitch     (Thanks to MeteoX9999)
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

You may know the trick to get Rydia to equip a Silver Shield, steal one from an
Armadillo, then in the battle item screen, click on the shield (As Rydia of
course) and drag it up to an available arm.  Apparently, this bug works very
non-specifically, basically you can equip any arm item (weapon or shield) on
anyone if you can steal it.  There aren't many enemies that drop arm items, but
you can really mess around with this.  I once equipped Cecil with an Earth
Hammer!  And Rydia a harp! Weird...

  Zeromus VS Golbez/FuSoYa damage  (Thanks to MeteoX9999)
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

This took me a long time to figure out.  Have you noticed the more powerful you
are when you go to fight Zeromus, the weaker Golbez and FuSoYa seem to be?
Recently, I witnessed Golbez and FuSoYa, with party at the average level of 64,
do only about 400 damage.  When I attempted to beat Zeromus at earlier levels,
they were doing 600-700 damage.  When you start a new game, at work your way to
Zeromus at a measly level, say 55. Then 60, 62, 64, 66, etc. And watch how they
seem to do much weaker damage as your level increases.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
  Stronger Monsters Earlier        (Thanks to MeteoX9999)
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Although this is one example, feel free to send in other examples of this if
you desire.  With Palom and Porom you have to go to Mt. Ordeals.  Go to the
mountains north of it instead to arrive at a little triangle point where you 
can see another island with a forest on it.  This will allow you to take on 
enemies you would normally fight around Silveria, like the red two-headed 
snake, the silverish Swordrats and so on.

  Sylph Spell Glitch               (Thanks to Benjamin Gilbert)
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Put Rydia's spell Sylph in the top right spot on her Call list and it won't use
any MP. You've got a free offensive/heal all move!



=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
  64 Door Warp Rumour
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Although it not proven to work (at least to me), there is a rumour floating
around that if you enter/exit too many doors within a castle, town, etc. you
can end up warped to another locale in the world!  This can actually cause your
game to be permanently stopped because of this (you will be unable to get
places, find characters, do deeds that you need to do, etc.).
