    |About this Guide |
         This is (obviously) a guide to the neutral encounters in Ogre Battle 
    64. If you're reading this, you probably know what Ogre Battle 64 is, and 
    how to play it, so I won't explain that (unless otherwise convinced). The 
    purpose of this guide is to inform people all about neutral encounters. I'll 
    try to complete it as soon as possible, and I'd appreciate if no one e-mails 
    me about areas I haven't already explored. I'll try to keep it as 
    spoiler-free as possible, which shouldn't be too hard. But I'm warning you 
         What should be in the next update? Well...

    |What's a Neutral Encounter? |
    A neutral encounter is an encounter with a character you can possibly
    recruit. While wandering around on the Mission Map, occasionally one of your 
    moving characters exclaims something to the effect of "A [insert character] 
    encountered !?" The screen then changes to battle mode, where the neutral 
    character appears. You can then interrupt the battle by pushing the 
    interrupt button (X), and select 'Talk'. Now, one of three things can 
    happen. One, the character will join your group. Two, the character will not 
    be persuaded and get a free hit. Or three, the character will flee. As David 
    brought to my attention, to have the greatest chance of recruiting a large 
    character, let your unit hit
    it a few times. To have the greatest chance of recruiting a small character, 
    try to persuade it without hitting it at all. But be warned, if you kill the 
    neutral character, or all your characters use all their moves, you won't 
    recruit the character. But you will get an item.
    Neutral encounters are randomly initiated while on the map, although the
    chances of them happening are greater when you are revisiting the area.
    Neutral encounters don't happen to units that are at strongholds, camping, 
    or aren't moving. Your unit has to be heading towards a destination for them 
    to occur. You can only get in neutral encounters with non-human classes 
    (demi-human, beast, golem, etc). Remember, you CAN'T use your Elem-Pedras in 
    neutral encounters.
    |Neutral Encounters |
    Note: Mature Dragon means any one of the six second stage dragons (Blue,
    Black, Earth, Thunder, Platinum, Red). Undead means Skeletons and Ghosts.
    Note2: Hawkmen, Ravens, and Vultans can be found on the highways of every 
    level. Their level is based on the level of the other encounters there.
