    1. Introduction
    I started working on this faqs to help get some of the 
    information that they contain, available for viewing and 
    use by posters at Gamefaqs and fans of the game who 
    had failed to obtain all of the books, or had not enough
    time to obtain them all, themselves. The following is a 
    guide very similar to that I constructed for the Old 
    Book Guide for Suikoden IV. Hope you enjoy! 
    -A) History
    6/14/2006-Work began on Suikoden III Old Book Guide
    6/15/2006-Completed all entries.
    6/15/2006-Pending Submission. 
    5/23/2007-General check. 
    -B) Copyrights
    This guide may not be posted in any other website other then
    Gamefaqs.com, or informational source without my approval.
    I will more then likely grant permission if you simply ask, and
    give credit where it is due. If you notice an error, or have found
    something not listed in this guide, please email me and I will
    correct the faqs and give credit where due. A LOT of effort
    went into this guide, and I would be most upset to see it used
    without consent, credit, or due notice. That being said. Spoilers
    abound. Ye have been warned, again! On with the faqs!
    2. Old Books
    -A) History and Information
    Every Suikoden to date has made use of the Old Books to help 
    the player obtain valuable information about the locale, history 
    of a certain area or people, Shop rare-find lists, True Runes, 
    hints of help for your gameplay, and other helpful information. 
    To best use and appreciate the Old Books in Suikoden III, 
    you must first recruit the Librarian, Eike(Chisui Star). Eike 
    becomes available, and is most often recruited as soon as you 
    play as Thomas in Chapter 1 of his POV. He is auto-recruited
    so you don't really have to worry about ever missing him. Once
    he is recruited, you must simply bring him the Old Books at the 
    library he facilitates at Lake Castle for him to review with you. 
    The Library is located on the top floor, right side near the 
    elevator hallway. 
    -B) Locations
    Here are the locations of all of the Old Books. Some of these, 
    keep in mind, may require you to be playing as a certain character to 
    obtain. Namely those people who can loot corpses or check the 
    remains for treasures. Those are the earliest and quickest ways to 
    obtain them, anyhow. Some can be recieved simply by speaking 
    with the right NPC in the right location. Anyways....on with the 
    Old Book Volume 1
    You recieve Old Book Volume #1 from the corpse remains in the 
    Flame Champion's Hideaway. Most often, it will be one of the first
    if not "the" first things you will recieve from the corpse. If you have 
    problems obtaining it, I suggest waiting until you know you can loot 
    again, save your game, and then try to get it. If you fail, reload and 
    try again.  
    Old Book Volume 2
    This book is obtained by way of the Lottery. Namely, it is the 
    Complimentary Prize you obtain by playing the Lottery game in 
    Vinay Del Zexay. You shouldn't have too many issues finding this 
    one, unless you aren't used to the lottery. It really isn't hard to pull 
    the complimentary prize, as you obtain that more often than others. 
    Old Book Volume 3
    This book is obtained by one of the Lizard Clan, in the N. Western
    sections of the Great Hollow. Simply speak with him and accept the 
    book when offered. That's all there is to it.  
    Old Book Volume 4
    This book is found later in the game, although it is an early addition 
    to the Volumes. You can obtain this by checking the corpse you find
    in the area of the Cyndar Ruins, accessed by way of the right pathway. 
    Again, it should be there as a first loot on the corpse. 
    Old Book Volume 5
    This Old Book can be found by speaking with the Chisha Clan woman 
    who is walking the platforms in Duck Village behind the Inn. You should
    be able to spot her if you go to where you first met Hortez III. 
    Old Book Volume 6
    This book is found by way of Eike. He comes with it in his inventory of
    personal favorites. Can't miss this one. 
    Old Book Volume 7
    Another book that Eike comes with when you first meet and recruit him. 
    You won't be able to miss this one either. 
    Old Book Volume 8
    Old Book #8 is another one of those that you obtain by playing the Lottery
    game. This time, you need to win the Complimentary Prize in the Lake 
    Castle Lottery. That which is ran by Martha. 
    Old Book Volume 9
    You will be down on your knee's looting another corpse to obtain this copy. 
    What you want to do, is check the corpse at the Flame Champion's 
    Hideaway with Geddoe's team as soon as you arrive. This book should be 
    the first item you recieve. 
    Old Book Volume 10
    Another edition that good ol' Eike starts with. You can't miss this one....
    Old Book Volume 11
    This volume is found quite easily and fairly early in your adventure if you 
    keep your eyes peeled for it. You recieve it as a prize from the Chimera
    you can encounter as a boss at the end of the North Cavern Tunnel. If 
    you are unfamiliar with it, it is the place where a couple of duels take place
    and scenes late in the game are viewed. 
    Old Book Volume 12
    This Book can be obtained by opening the Treasure Chest on Mt. Hei-Tu. 
    It is always guarded by a Crab type enemy, so prepare accordingly if you 
    are low in level or poorly equipped. 
    -C) Contents
    This section will detail and list the contents of each book for you, and give
    you some idea on some of the most important aspects of the game. Here 
    we are at last. I can hardly wait!

    Old Book Volume 2-Legend of Cyndar 
    "Long ago, there lived the elusive Cyndar Clan, whose ruins lie across
    our land."
    "In the search for the unknown Cyndar legacy, scholars and hunters have
    found only death. May one of those brave souls find peace in knowning 
    that their findings survive herein to spread their rare insights. "
    "My Search for Cyndar"
    "Far have I come to seek the truth of Cyndar, yet little have I found. 
    I record my work herein now, for my strength falters more each day."
    "The ethereal Cyndar legacy casts a shadow before us, and none can claim 
    to know anything of their true nature."
    "Cyndar went from the north to the south, leaving ruins behind in all 
    corners of our land. Their leader perhaps kept death at bay with a rune
    above the brow, but the same magic may also have forced Cyndar to remain 
    nomadic. Beyond the many traps set within the Cyndar ruins may rest great 
    wealth and knowledge."
    "Few have sought to break through to the inner ruins, for the darkness of 
    death is said to sweep away those who try. I myself now suffer this

    Old Book Volume 5-Birth of the 27 True Runes
    In the beginning there existed only long, long Darkness.
    Over time, Darkness grew lonely. The loneliness became a heavy sorrow. 
    Darkness eventually cried one tear.
    From the tear were born two brothers: Sword and Shield.
    Sword said it could cut all that exists. Shield replied that nothing could 
    even scratch it.
    They fell into war. Their war lasted for 7 days and 7 nights. 
    In the end, Sword breached Shield, and Shield broke Sword.
    Pieces of Sword rained down to make the sky. Pieces of Shield rained down
    to make the earth. Their battle flashes became the stars.
    The 27 gems adorning Sword and Shield transformed into the 27 True Runes. 
    And thus the world began its life.
    Old Book Volume 6-Trader's Handbook
    "Every good trader gathers information. At every place you visit, check 
    the prices of goods."
    "When you notice price differences, buy where an item is cheap and sell 
    where it is expensive."
    "Shops need time to replenish supplies you've bought. Use that time to 
    visit other trade shops. Sell what you have, then buy goods said to be 
    desired elsewhere."
    "One famous trader bought salt in Caleria and sold it for triple the price 
    in Vinay Del Zexay. Deer antlers were cheap there. He took several back to 
    Caleria and made a fortune. If only his pet dragon hadn't eaten it all."
    "Your ability to carry items is limited. Store your purchases at the 
    warehouse if you can't sell them right away."
    "Keep your ear to the wall, and the wind! You never know when a story 
    you hear will point the way to a hefty profit."
    Old Book Volume 7-(Dunan) Unification War
    (This title will vary by your load data from Suikoden I) 
    "In 460(solar calendar), an alliance of cities known as the City-State of 
    Jowston broke a ceasefire agreement without warning, and annihilated the 
    Highland Youth Army. In response, Prince Luca Blight of Highland invaded 
    Toto and Ryube villages, spawning the (Dunan) Unification War. Jowston 
    leaders sought more cooperation among cities, but were denied even as 
    Highland killed Mayor Annabel and captured her city, Muse, the most 
    important of Jowston cities. Total Highland victory was certain until the 
    remnants of the State Army joined with mercaneries at North Window Castle 
    to organize a new resistance movement against Prince Blight. 
    These new allied forces were led by the son of the hero Genkaku, who 
    had saved Jowston in the past. The new allied forces endured Highland 
    attacks and succeeded in rescuing Greenhill City mayor Teresa Wisemail. 
    After Matilda Knightdom dismissed a request for military help; half of its 
    knights defected to join the new allied forces. With their numbers augmented, 
    they launched a challenge against Highland, which was now completely 
    controlled by Luca Blight as emperor, due to the sudden death of his father, 
    Agares. Despite Highland's numerical superiority, its army was unable to 
    deliver a decisive blow against the allies led by Shu, a clever tactician. 
    Emperor Blight chose to sneak-attack the heart of the allied forces. The plan 
    was discovered in advance, however, and the allied forces waited patiently 
    for Blight's ambush. 
    Under a full moon, the slaughter was reversed, with the attackers 
    not even realizing they'd been surrounded. Emperor Luca's death passed the 
    throng to Princess Jilla's husband of 17 years, Jowy Blight. Inspired by the 
    ambush, the allied forces liberated Tinto City and Greenhill City. They went 
    on to capture the Matilda Knightdom's stronghold, Rockaxe Castle, and then 
    turned their attention to the Highland imperial capital, L'Renouille. 
    Nearly everyone defending the capital died. Emperor Jowy Blight was last 
    seen during the torching of the city. The Highland Kingdom was no more, and 
    the royal Blight family legacy came to an end."
    Old Book Volume 8-The Flame Champion Legend
    "Many years ago, over half of the Grasslands were controlled by the Holy 
    Harmonian Kingdom. Most clans fell under their control. Even clans not 
    controlled paid tribute. No one questioned this, for the Harmonian army 
    was almighty. One battalion alone was equal in strength to all clans 
    "The difference in power was enormous, yet one group showed no fear: the 
    Flame Champion and his Fire Bringers."
    "Their battles were small, but word spread quickly. Stories of the Fire 
    Bringer bandits raiding supply transports made the clans brave and hopeful. 
    Soon they stood up to be led by the same man. Then came the day when they 
    stood as one against the Holy Harmonian Kingdom."
    "The Harmonian army clashed fiercely with the Grasslands forces led by the 
    Flame Champion, (Fire Hero's Name). It was the heaviest fighting ever known, 
    but neither side won a decisive victory. Strangely enough, although Harmonia 
    did not claim victory, it has not tried to retake the Grasslands in all the 
    years since."
    "The Flame Champion did not show himself again. Rumors said that he went to 
    the far west continent, or that he traded his own life for peace in the

    Old Book Volume 10-Win the Lottery! 
    "If you want to get filthy rich, the lottery is your ticket. Here's 
    all you need to know."
    Q1: How can I buy tickets?
    A1: Go to a lottery sales outlet! One ticket costs 100 potch.
    You can buy up to 10 tickets for a drawing, but only during the sales 
    period. When the sales period stops, the drawing & payout period 
    starts. That's when you should check your numbers and collect any 
    Q2: How much can I win?
    A2: The typical range is 500,000 for 1st prize to 3,000 for 4th prize. 
    Complimentary and grand prizes also exist. Complimentary prizes differ 
    by seller.
    "The tricky part is cashing in your winners. That can onnly be done 
    where you bought them. Remember that! And for that matter, remember 
    winning tickets can only be confirmed within 3 lottery draws after 
    the one it was purchased for. Any later than that, and your ticket 
    is void! But once you've identified a ticket as a winner, you're 
    free to carry it around until it burns a hole in your armor."
    "The rest if up to you. Do you know the saying, 'Players win, 
    watchers lose'? Well, it's true!"
    "May you have the last dance with Lady Luck!"
