1. Walkthrough
a. Meteor!!!!
Items: Phoenix Down
In the beginning of the game you'll go through a pretty fast opening then a big 
meteor (looks like a potato)falls fom the sky which some old guys in and hits 
the ground. You get on your Chocobo and Ride. Now goto the east and you'll see 
the meteor. Now walk to the meteor and you'll see a girl with 2 zombies picking 
her up. They'll see you and fight you. These guys are so easy all you do is 
attack each of them once and they'll die. Then the girl will thank you then you 
get to choose your name. the name I will use for him throught the game is his 
default name Butz(He He) then you'll hear something to the east and you'll find 
some old geezer(the members call him that a lot)who has amnesia from a bump
on his head. He only remembers his name Galuf. After the chat Lenna and Galuf 
will leave to the Wind Shrine. Before you exit go to lower right of the place 
and you'll see a chest which has a Pheonix Down in it. All you do is go through 
a hidden passage thats in the tree to the chest then leave. And go west.

b. Pirate Trouble
Items: Leather Hat
Bam once you go west then go up the clumsy Boco will make Butz hit a wall. All 
of a sudden an earthquake occurs(several)and your dashing through the holes you 
have to fight a pair of zombies then when you dash more with your chocobo you'll 
have to fight another pair of zombies. Then you'll pick up Lenna and Galuf who 
fainted(Weaklings). After that mess Lenna will talk to you while Galuf is 
slepping(not!) and Butz will call Galuf an old geezer and Galuf will stand up
and know that he heard everything they said. They'll join you now. Now go into 
the cave you'll leave Boco behind because its too dangerous(???Wnen your on a 
Chocobo you never get in battles???) And you won't see him for a long time. And 
Now you'll be in the caves. Basically this get into about 10 fights in the 
caves. There is a recovery place in the entrance. Your people should be at Lvl. 
4 or 5. Also you will get a Leather Hat in a chest. Equip it to Butz. You'll see 
a pirate as you move on hit a skull switch and walk through a door. Follow what 
he did and go through the door. Go up and you'll see a ship that runs without 
air? Then you'll see another pirate walk around then leave. For fun you can talk 
to the tired pirates who think you're captian. No goto the walkway to the ship 
and go up to wheel and press A. Huh the ship wont move then you end up in deep 
poop as Ferris and the pirates catch you. Also you find out that Lenna's a 
princess(how convienient).

The pirate leader Ferris will help you guys out because Lenna has the same 
pendant Ferris has. Note: That was not a typo you will understand later. And 
will take you to the Wind Shrine. A pirate will ask you if he can take you 
there. Say "Yes" so you'll know where to go. When your there on the land go back 
in the ship and go down a bit then west to this quaint town. When you arrive 
there the true pirates will goto the local pub to get a couple(a lot) of drinks 
and Ferris will join. Enter the Pub and you'll see all the pirates except Ferris 
on the 1st floor who consumed all the beer! If you talk to the pirate near the 
bartender on the stool you'll find out that the guy loves the captain. Then go 
upstairs and go into Ferris's room and press A next to Ferris then Butz has a 
heart on his head then Galuf goes in and has a heart on his head too. Whats 
going on! Ferris will wake up and they'll get out of the hearts and now he wants 
to be alone. Go downstairs and go on the stool next to the dancers and press A

piano in every pub in the game you'll learn a special song! Goto the shops and 
buy 2 broad swords. Then goto the armor shop and buy 3 leather hats and 1 
leather shield. Just press a on the pots and boxes around the town to find some

First you have to goto the ancient library but before that remember the sand I 
told you not to go in. Go in there now. All you do is have all Summoners and do 
Ramuh and make sure one has Learning and hope he does Aqua Rake before you kill 
him. Once you do talk to them Cid and Mid in the Ancient Library. Somehow they 
saw your dad in the Quicksand Desert! Now go out and to the top left and you'll

After this go out of their through the exit in the southeast and walk south and 
you'll find the ruined city. Enter their and you'll see Lenna's Dad a couple 
times then he'll lead you to a trap door. Now you'll transport to under Cresent

the center, some books on the right and a switch in the bottom left section. 
It'll say if you wanna pull it say no then yes. You'll have access to 3 treasure 
chests which contain 2 shurikens and size. Now continue up and you'll see your 
ship and an airship! Cid and Mid will fall down from the sky right next to 
you(how convenient) and talk about it. They'll try it out and find out a 
monsters on it(Darn Hobo's!).
Boss: Clayclaw
HP: 2000
Startegy: You don't need any this guy is so easy. Just use Bolt 2 with the 
people who have Black Magic and Attack reguraly with everyone else.
Now you can fly.

x. Your dad is SO annoying
Items: None
Now with the ship fly to the ruins and then all of a sudden it seems your dad 
rose up the ancient city. It's so high you can't reach there or can you. also 
your party's level should be 17 if not fight more because once in the ruins you 
don't want to fight any of the people. So now go back to where your ship came 
from(i'll call it the lzone from now on which is located on the tip in Cresent 
Island). Cid and Mid will talk about Adamntium(X-Men rip-off) and how it can 
help. Galuf remembers something and makes you goto the Tycoon meteorite. Now in 
their you'll see some crystals. Pick it up and leave but some annoying blue 
turtle is in your way.
Boss: Adamanti
HP: 2000
Strategy: Use Level 5 Death OR if you don't have that make everyone Black 
Knights. Have Lenna Heal and the rest do Ice 2.
They'll install and you'll get your rest. Now here's the crappiest part cid says 
there's cannon's guarding it. They're tough! 2 ways
Have Lenna be the Healer or do Bolt 2 to a cannon. Ferris should do Bolt 2 to 
that same cannon. Galuf attack with Magemash to the same Cannon. Butz attack 
with a 2 handed Coral. Or just Ramuh them. Soon you'll find the master cannon. I 
basically don't consoder him a boss(its a cannon?)so
here's what to do make ferris be a Summoner with Blue Magic then do Level 5 Doom 
and kill those other cannons. After that just Ramuh him to death and prepare to 
enter the city.

y. Lonka Treasure
Items: Gold Armor, Gold Shield, Ancient Sword, Elixer, Shuriken, Pheonix Down, 
Make Ferris be a thief so you can dash and see secret passages towards items. 
It's pretty easy over here. Eventually you'll meet up with your dad and he'll 
tell you to kill someone.
Boss: Aruekoebies
HP: ???? / 2nd Time ????
Strategy: I know something. Attacking is VERY useless. Make Ferris be a Blue 
Mage, Lenna Heal, Butz Attack, and Galuf throw shurikens(that's why I said to 
buy so much) he'll be done then come back to life! Just do Level 5 death with 
Ferris and he's dead.
He'll talk and be in the Crystal room. Just follow they'll be no fighting. This 
is a very big spoiler if you haven't beat him so bewarned!

You enter there and the King will be possesed and try to kill you and wen you 
least suspect it another meteor falls from the sky(how convenient) and in comes 
Cara who knocks sense into King Tycoon. Cara says hey Dad or something like that 
and Galuf finally remembers evverything! Then Butz looks at the Crystal(you know 
something bad's gonna happen) and it shatters. Then aroud this time Butz says a 
bad word. Exdeath appears inlike 2 seconds(boy he doesn't waste time) and iss 
about to take the crystal's and leaves. Then the King kills himself to protect 
you then he and now you get some cool jobs.
Jobs: Dragoon, Dancer, Chemist, Samurai 

z. Three Meteor Points
Items: None
This is the section with the most bosses rather than the end. You might get 
stuck finding the last meteor which is where the Lonka Ruins was.
So lets start.

Boss: Titan
HP: 2500
Strategy: This guy is TOUGH. First make sure all your members are healed. Then 
try to use Gill Toss with your Samurai. When he dies he will do Earth Shaker 
which takes lots of damage. Or just use Shiva and Cure2.
Now the next one.

Boss: Pyuro Boros
HP: ???
Strategy: Party requirements are Butz a knight, Lenna a White Mage, and Ferris a 
Samurai. First Ferris do Gill Toss. Most will die. Just have Lenna keep on doing 
Mute on one of them then attack with the rest and so forth. They're not that 
Last One.

Boss: Kimira Brain
HP: 3300
Strategy: Boy change Ferris to a White Mage with Level 2 Black Magic. Now Attack 
with Butz do Black magic with Lenna or heal and have ferris heal or do Black 
Magic. He should be done.

Now you can goto the next world. But first stock up on shurikens and try to get 
every spell then go in. Also get lots of Ethers!
