                                  Introduction
==============================================================================
Thank you for taking the time to open this FAQ and read through it. This is a 
great game and the need for some sort of strategy guide is a must for players 
trying to complete the game with everything. I generally don't write FAQs but 
if a game is released and has no type of guide I will take the time to write 
one provided that I have the game. I hope this guide helps many of you and if 
you have any suggestions feel free to drop me a line. One thing I will not do 
is repeat stuff that is in the instruction manual but I will instead give 
helpful tips. There may be stuff missing so if you find that is the case E-
mail me with your Gamefaqs handle so that I can give credit. If you E-mail me 
with something and you don't see your name in the credits, it will get done on 
the next update. By the way I have left out the list of gems, Armor, Skills 
and Techs and will do that in a future update. Everything that you need to get 
through the game is in the FAQ so enjoy.

| A.                             ~Leveling Up~                               |
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Leveling Up in Growlanser III is just like any other RPG in that you gain 
experience by fighting enemies. One thing that you must take note of is that 
you will earn more experience points by defeating enemies stronger than you 
are. While it seems like you would want to keep gaining levels to the highest 
level. You won't need to because in the game there is an item that can drop 
your level by 10 without a loss in stats. Every time you increase in level you 
will receive Master Points that are used to gain new Skills, Magic or Tech. A 
common mistake of players is that they allocate the points to certain Magic or 
Techs but they do not master it. Remember that you can't use abilities until 
they are mastered. The best way to go about this is to save your Master Points 
until you have enough to master abilities. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
| B.                             ~Battle Tactics~                            |
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
The key to making the game easy is the ability to perform well in battle. Just 
playing the game you already know the basics but there are a few things that 
can help you in battle. I will talk about Skills, Magic and Techs. One other 
thing that you must know is that you can now use items in battle but you won't 
be able to save the game though. Saving can only be done at save spots and on 
the over world map by pressing start.

=Skills=

Having the right skills is essential because they will make the difference in 
battle. When deciding on what skills you want your character to have you must 
decide what type of character this person is going to be. If you are using a 
fighter, skills like Movement Up, Hit Up, Critical Hit, Doppelganger, and 
Attack Wait Down are very useful. Movement determines how fast your characters 
move across the map while ATW determines the waiting time after performing an 
attack. These skills are absolutely crucial to a fighter. A mage however is 
different. Mages need to cast many spells and some become costly. Some of the 
skills I have for my Yayoi who is a mage is Max MP Up, MP Cost Down, MP Range 
Up and Cooperation. Those are just the basics but you get the idea and it 
becomes more clear as you play the game.

=Magic=

Many enemies in the game are weak against something and Magic is the way to 
defeat them quickly. One type of magic that I talk about throughout the guide 
is Co-Op Magic. Co-Op magic is the art of casting two spells together to 
create a new one. I like using Co-Op magic because some combinations allow me 
to attack multiple enemies at once. This strategy works great during a number 
of battles in the game. Take a look at the Cooperation Magic Section for more 
Info.

=Techs=
Techs have their uses as well and some techs are better than others. The Techs 
that I suggest investing in are Dash, Bait, Critical Blow, Thievery and 
Psychic. These five are great for the fighters in your group but what if 
you're character is a mage? In that case I suggest Quicken Aria and Strengthen 
Magic. There are others and I haven't tried all of them but if you get the 
basic ones first you should be OK.

Why is Psychic on the List?
If you read through the techs and you are wondering what Psychic is good for, 
the answer is nothing, nothing that is until you are fighting a boss. When 
fighting an enemy that has a clear advantage in strength, Psychic is your best 
friend. Combined with the right defensive skills and gems you can make you're 
character nearly un-hittable. Psychic predicts what the enemy is going to do 
and raises your ability to dodge or block Physical Attacks from that enemy 
greatly. The good thing about it is that it lasts for a while. If your 
thinking of taking out difficult enemies, then this is your skill. 

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
| C.                          ~Gems and Rings~                               |
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Gems and Rings are probably the most important aspect of the game because they 
ultimately determine how good your characters are. The first thing is Rings. 
Although the characters use a Ring Weapon in the game, you can find different 
types of Rings. Each ring that you find can hold three gems and different 
Rings have different stats. When finding a new ring, it's best to look at the 
gem levels and then the stats. Here is an example of a ring.

God Hero Alfeil
9
9
9

MHP  +40     ATK  +26
MMP  +20     DEF  +26
STR    0     MOV  +30
INT    0     HIT  +45
DEX    0     ATW  -18

On each ring you will see the name of the ring. The higher the rank the better 
stats will be. Below that are the gem slots. When equipping a gem the level of 
the gem cannot exceed the level of the gem slot. If it does the gem will be 
useless. One other thing that you must do when collecting rings is to sell the 
useless ones. It doesn't do any good to have a bunch of useless rings in your 
inventory. To find more rings, defeat enemies quickly. The faster you defeat 
an enemy the more likely you are to get a ring. Also if the enemy is a lot 
stronger than you may get an even better ring.


Now that you know about Rings you should also know about gems. Different Gems 
can give you different abilities. When deciding which gem to equip make sure 
that you choose one that compliments your character. If you combine certain 
rings together you may get some great results. I haven't tried every 
combination, that will be up to you to discover but a good one to have if you 
are going for power is Lv7 Epiphany and Lv7 Vampire. These two work great 
together because you increase your damage greatly but you don't suffer the 
penalty of being hurt. 

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
| D.                          ~Unexpected Battles~                           |
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
An unexpected battle can occur any time while walking around the world map. 
This is a good way to increase your levels and obtain items. When an 
unexpected battle occurs, there are three possibilities. 

Normal Battle    - This means that everyone starts out equal. This type of 
                   unexpected battle occurs most of the time.

Attack Advantage - This is when your characters can attack first but the enemy
                   has to wait. This is the best situation in battle.

Rear Attack      - This is the worst situation because your characters must 
                   wait a little bit before they can react. If this happens 
                   you must decide whether to fight or flee depending on the 
                   situation.

Siege Attack     - Your characters are completely surrounded in this type of 
                   battle, meaning that you must fight your way through. If 
                   you have a technique like Perimeter Pulse, you can take out
                   the enemies quickly.


In addition to these situations other special situations occur that can net 
you some cash, gems, or items. They are a treasure chest, Silm and Merchant. 

Treasure Chest   - A treasure chest is on the battlefield and during the 
                   battle you can take the treasure chest but more than likely 
                   the enemy will steal it. If that happens chase it down and 
                   kill it to get the item.

Silm             - This is a small creature that you'll find on the 
                   battlefield. It is not an enemy but other monsters on the 
                   field can kill it. If you can save it you will receive 
                   something good.

Merchant         - You may run into a merchant that is being attacked by  
                   monsters. The goal is to protect his animals. If you can do
                   this successfully the merchant will sell you stuff at a 
                   discounted price. This is a good way to get Armor below 
                   cost.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
| E.                          ~Cooperation Magic~                            |
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Cooperation Magic is probably one of the most neglected aspects due to the 
fact that some players like to go through the game using shear power. To use 
Cooperation Magic you must first speak to the Doctor at the Federation Outpost 
before guiding the Transport. He will tell you the basics of Co-Op magic. To 
use Co-Op in battle, two spells of different types must be cast together and 
both characters casting the spells must have learned the skill "Cooperation". 
Even though you may know all of the combinations, they cannot be used until 
the Doctor has taught them to you. One drawback to using Co-Op is that it will 
drain your MP. Make sure that if this is your strategy, Characters with high 
MP are being used.

- Determining the Level of a Co-OP spell

To determine the power of a spell being used it's simple. If the magic being 
cast is the same for both characters then the levels are added together. If 
the types of spells are different then the level is averaged. Knowing this 
makes it really easy to achieve higher-level spells in less than half of the 
time. 

Example
=======  
If you wanted to defeat an enemy that was highly susceptible to fire and had 
two characters with Level 3 Fire Arrows, you could have them both cast level 3 
and use Co-Op to get a level 6.

Cooperation Combinations
=========================
Stone Shot     +     Fire Arrows     =     Eruption
Stone Shot     +     Ice Barrage     =     Sandstorm
Stone Shot     +     Wind Cutter     =     Thunder
Fire Arrows    +     Ice Barrage     =     Soul Force
Fire Arrows    +     Wind Cutter     =     Fireball
Ice Barrage    +     Wind Cutter     =     Blizzard
Wind Cutter    +     Magic Vortex    =     Absorb
Wind Cutter    +     Holy Flame      =     Holy Cross
Wind Cutter    +     Death           =     Death Clouds
Blast          +     Stone Shot      =     Quake
Blast          +     Fire Arrows     =     Meteor
Blast          +     Ice Barrage     =     Thunder Storm
Blast          +     Wind Cutter     =     Tornado

Once you have Viktor in your party you can have him make new items for a fee. 
Some of the items won't be available in the shops and as his knowledge grows 
the number of possible items does as well depending on what you have done in 
the game. The general rule about getting items made is that Viktor must be in 
the lab. If you take Viktor out then he will not work on anything. Once you 
have selected an item to be made, go out on a mission. When you return from 
the mission it will be ready. If you are playing the game and you say "Wow, 
Viktor is awesome" and you like using him, don't do it unless of course there 
isn't a new item to be made.

Below is a list of Viktor's Accomplishments...

Developed Communication Device                              Story Item

Made Master Garb *                                           45000 Elm
Developed Excavator **                                        2500 Elm
Developed Space-Time Resistor                               Story Item
Developed Soul Gauge                                        Story Item
Developed Space-Time Summon Device ***                        Optional


*     The Master Garb can be mad by first reading a book on the 7th floor of 
      the Imperial Library and then visiting a man in Lindenberg.

**    Read about the Excavator on the 3rd floor of the Imperial Library and 
      then create it in the lab. The excavator is used to reach Fox-Tail 
      Village. 

***   The Space-Time Summon Device is used to Import Growlanser II characters. 
      You need the Mind Induction Crystal that can be found in Lindenberg when 
      you repair its Transfer Gate and the Power Stone, which is gotten by 
      completing the Free Battle 4 on 4 in the arena at the Master Class A 
      Rank.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
This is the place that you go to see what major event you need to complete. 
These appear as the story progresses so just speak to Remington after you do 
something. There are two people in the Agency and the second is Remington's 
Assistant. If Slayn comes alone you will receive Off-Sheet Reports. They are 
separate investigations that Slayn can take care of. Here is a list of the Off 
Sheet reports available.

-     Assassin named Randolf
-     Assassin named Gray
-     Mrs. Burns' Death
-     Central Gate Location
-     Monika's Father
-     Set Up Randolf
-     Dark Tree Root Research
-     Monika's Relocation

|  01                              ~Prologue~                                |
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
The Game begins inside of a cabin; a young lady is tending to a sick boy. When 
the boy awakens he is sort of scolded by the young girl about why he was in an 
area infested with monsters. The boy's response is...

-     Where did I collapse?
-     Who are you?            
-     Who am I?
-     Where is this?
-     ...

I don't know how this affects the story but after you answer, she will tell 
you to think hard and ask, "can't you even recall your name?"

-     I'll try to remember    
-     I can't remember

Whatever your response is will get you to the name selection screen. You will 
be given the name of Slayn Wilder. Choose your blood type and Astrological 
Sign. While the Blood Type affects the personality of your character the 
astrological sign determines your starting stats. The girl will introduce 
herself as Annette Burns, daughter of the Xironia Federation President. After 
her uncle and his assistant speak to Annette about the current situation in 
the area, the three will leave and you will have control of Slayn. If you 
played through Growlanser II then the first thing that you will notice is that 
you can walk around and explore. There is nothing here so exit the cabin. 
Outside Renault will ask what you're doing and will tell you that Aggressival 
Troops will attack. Slayn's response is...

-     Aggressival?
-     They will attack?
-     I can protect myself!
-     I'd rather fight than sleep.  

Shortly after the Aggressival Troops will attack. This is the first battle in 
the game, sort of a trial by fire for Slayn. Unfortunately this is an 
unwinnable battle. After watching the intro, two months will pass and you will 
take over as Slayn at the Xironia Federation Outpost.




=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
|  02                       ~Xironia Federation Outpost~                     |
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Now that you have control of Slayn it's time to explore the area. Renault will 
come up the ladder to relieve you of your guard duty. Speak to Renault and he 
will ask if you think it's you're fault that he's injured.

-     Yes   
-     No

When you approach the ladder Annette will greet you. It seems like you were 
imagining things. Speak to the Guard and the guard will tell you that 
everything's fine but all hell could break loose. Slayn can respond...

-     Stay on Guard   
-     Relax
-     Good Job

After talking to the guard speak to Annette and she will ask if Renault was 
here. Of course she can't believe it but Slayn will say...

-     What's wrong?               
-     Are you calling me a liar?
-     ...

You should now have control of Slayn and Annette. You can search objects, 
climb ladders and speak to people by pressing the X button. Climb down the 
ladder when you reach the bottom you will notice a strange circle. Step on the 
circle and press the X button to go to the save screen. The game can only be 
saved at one of these circles but if you are on the world map then you can 
save anywhere. If you speak to the guard you can tell him what you thought 
about his explanation.

-     It was very helpful!                   
-     It didn't seem very helpful...
-     That's all you learned in life? Ouch.

Speak with the old man in yellow and he will tell you about how he hates what 
Aggressival is doing and the next time he will use his Ring Weapon to punish 
them. Slayn responds...

-     I'm counting on you then          
-     Don't be a burden to us
-     Please don't work too hard         

A young girl with a purple dress and a purple ribbon in her hair is walking 
around. She complains about how Aggressival is attacking off and on. Slayn's 
response is...

-     Leave them to me!                   
-     I cannot help...
-     I wish I could do away with your worry. 
-     I understand what he thinks, then. 

The final person is looking out toward Aggressival thinking about how unlucky 
they are. Slayn can respond with...

-     That is not a license to pillage from us!
-     We should share our bounty, then.   
-     Their trouble is not our concern.
-     They were certainly unlucky.


After speaking to everyone leave town. Annette will leave you temporarily so 
just head to the east to reach the town. About a third of the way there you 
will find yourself at an opening that shows a scene with a young girl looking 
for Lobelika Root. After the scene run along the bottom right but don't touch 
the edge of the screen. When you get close enough the battle will begin.

This is an easy fight but you will need to work to get a Mission Complete. The 
Assassin will strike down the girl first. After seeing you the Assassin makes 
you the next target. Begin to cast Fire Arrows and select Wait if you have 8 
MP or cast it on the Assassin if your MP is 10 since you will be able to cast 
the magic at least three times. The Assassin will hit you once and then a 
Bandit will come out to steal the girl's belongings. Use Fire Arrows twice on 
the bandit and then attack the Assassin with your sword. After the last blow 
is struck you will have 5 options.

-     I won't forgive evil men!
-     That was but a taste of my strength!  
-     Did it...?
-     It was no problem!
-     You'll die at once!

You will receive a Recovery Medicine and after the fight the girl will begin 
to walk away. Make sure that you speak to her otherwise you will miss out on 
events later in the game. She will give you the Thief's Button and the Small 
Key Pendant. Afterwards Annette will come walking around. After she speaks 
about the past some new options will be available. Depending on what you have 
done or how your character has acted in the game, some of these choices may be 
grayed out. 

-     Yeah...
-     I'm so grateful
-     What would have happened to me without you?   
-     I thought you were an Angel that day.
-     Why do you talk to me like a family pet?

After deciding you will be in control of both characters. Travel east along 
the map to reach Voltone City. You can ignore the cave to the north for the 
time being. On your Way to Voltone City get into at least one Random battle so 
that you can raise your level. You only get one Master point right now on 
level up but that's enough to learn the magic of Cure.

When you arrive in the city, take some time to look around. Avoid the mansion 
up the stairs and explore a bit. The mansion is the next place that you'll go 
to advance the story. Explore this part of the city by talking to everyone and 
visiting houses. The shop is in this part of the city as well. To the east of 
the shop is another part of the city. An arena is being built to the east and 
just near the house for rent is a Fortune-Teller and the entrance to the 
Remington Detective Agency. Speak to the Fortune-Teller and he will tell Slayn 
to come back alone. Enter the mansion and Annette will leave temporarily After 
she leaves go to the room on the left to read the report and then return to 
the fortuneteller. After the Fortune-Teller tells you your fortune, three kids 
with horns come running up. After they speak Slayn can respond...

-     Why do you have horns?    (Choose)
-     What special power?
-     ...

Now you must take the challenges of the children to increase your abilities. 
First speak to Hob. Hob can give you strength. He will test your might by 
having you try to push him back. To do that, press the X button as fast as you 
can. You will get a Mission Complete if you can push him back before the timer 
reaches 5. 

Next speak to Wize. Wize will test your Intelligence with a series of 
questions.

Question #1
What is the cause of the Famine?
-     Population Increase.
-     Poor harvest due to the sun.     (Correct)
-     Devastated farms due to the war.
-     Decrease in working population.

Question #2
Why is Schelfengrif Empire fighting a Civil War?
-     Dispute over royal succession.   (Correct)
-     Civilian unrest.     
-     Military unrest.
-     Royal unrest.

Question #3
Who is President of the Xironia Federation?
-     Belger.   
-     Barns.     
-     Slayn.
-     Burns.  (Correct)

Question #4
How do you equip a ring?
-     Equip command.   
-     Automagically.     
-     When gaining levels.
-     At a Ring Shop.  (Correct)

Question #5
How do you escape from monsters you encounter?
-     Move party to edge of map.   
-     Move Slayn to edge of map.     
-     Move the leader to edge of map. (Correct)
-     Move multiple characters to edge of map. 



The final test is one of agility, speak to Winkle to get this one started. The 
three will run around and you must speak to them with the X button. Winkle is 
very difficult to catch so get the other two first and then him. After the 
three trials are concluded the Fortune-Teller will ask you what your best 
combat style is.

-     Weapon Combat
-     Magic Combat
-     Varied Combat

After the test to determine your stats, return to the mansion and explore it a 
bit before continuing with the game. Go upstairs and talk to Troop Chief 
Marshal who will tell you that you must take care of Annette now. Slayn 
responds...

-     I understand.  (Choose)
-     ...
-     "Lady" Annette?

To the left in one of the doors is Annette's Room. When she comes out she will 
suggest looking around town. Depending on what you have done already these are 
the possible choices.

-     Already done.              
-     What's the report about?   
-     What is the meeting for?
-     I've never been much for studying...
-     Show me around town!       

After you are finished, rest up in your bed. After you are woken up go 
upstairs to President Burns' Office. After explaining the plan Slayn responds 
with...
 
-     Count on me! *
-     Yes, Sir! *
-     ...if you say so.
-     It's none of my business.
-     I will guard her with my life!
-     Well, I can try, buuut...

When you attempt to leave she will thank you for waiting. Slayn will respond 
in these ways...

-     What took you so long?
-     You were faster than I expected. 
-     ... *
-     You're going out like that?

Once you have left the city go south toward the bridge. You shouldn't have any 
trouble finding it and if you do hit the Select button to open up the map that 
Annette gave to you.

After arriving at the border, Troop Chief Marshall says that everything will

-     I'm so relieved.
-     Surely they won't let us pass!

This is a very easy mission, to get through it all that needs to be done ids 
to get Annette and Slayn across the bridge. About halfway to the goal troops 
will appear on the both sides. The Aggressival General will appear near the 
bottom and two more from the top. If you run into the ones that came from the 
top you will be able to kill them because they are only level 1. Once you 
cross the bridge you will be in Schwartzhaas.

After crossing the bridge Annette will mention that Aggressival troops 
shouldn't be able to follow and Slayn responds...

-     We need to hurry to the Capital. 
-     I'm worried about the ones we left behind.
-     We won't waste the sacrifices made for us. 
-     What's this town's purpose? 

After ward Annette leaves to get a permit to the South Gate. In the meantime 
you can do some exploring around the town. Go to the right and you will find a 
ghost. He will give you a letter to deliver to a girl named Mary. The ghost 
will disappear and leave the item Letter to Mary. Raimy will go with you just 
to make sure that it gets to it's destination. Save at the inn and then go 
south to Southern Schwartzhaas. The second house down is Kenneth's house. He 
will tell you about his son in the defense force and then go to the South Gate 
if you would like to advance the story.

A girl walking around will ask you where you are from. You can answer in the 
following ways.

-     Xironia Federation
-     Rolandia Kingdom
-     Falkenfreuk City

When you go to East Schwartzhaas, you will find the Ring Shop and the shop 
that sells gems. At the Ring Shop the lady will ask you if you would like to 
read her book about rings. Say yes because if you read it you will receive the 
gem Lv2 Blood Blade. The other Ring Shop sells Gems. If you were out saving 
Silms then you may already have some of the gems that are for sale. After 
crossing the bridge you will witness a scene with a Featherian. Talk to the 
nearby man and Raimy will provide her input. When she asks about why the girl 
can't fly Slayn responds...

-     Maybe she's sick? *
-     She's just exercising her legs? 
-     Her wings are too small?
-     It's none of our business. 

Go to the house farther right and the person inside will tell you about the 
Battle Timer. Unfortunately you won't be able to get it until you go to 
Bibliostock to get a China Vase to exchange for one. Just keep that in mind 
for later. Finally go to the gate to the East and you will witness a scene 
with an Impatient Man. Go to the gate and Annette will be waiting for you. 
Speak to Annette and Raimy will speak to you.

"Is this woman a friend of yours?"

-     Yes *
-     She's my girlfriend.
-     Her name is Annette. 

After answering Annette will think you're odd and Raimy will remind you that 
she is invisible and that most people can't see her. Slayn responds by saying

-     Right
-     Rare...
-     Doesn't that make you lonely?

After you leave Schwartzhaas go south then cross the bridge to the west. 
Continue traveling northwest until you reach Falkenfreuk City.

When you arrive in the city you will see a scene with Theodora. Afterward 
explore the town. The Inn that you see at the town entrance is actually closed 
and just past the Ring Shop that is sold out is the Grewn Hospital. There is 
nothing to do there now but remember to come by later. At the end of the path, 
go up the stairs toward the castle. If you try to go to the castle, Annette 
will stop you and request that you stop so that she can get into formal 
attire. You can say yes or decline. Near the entrance to the hotel you can see 
something shimmering on the ground. Pick it up and it will be a Silver Bell. 
Once inside of the hotel Annette will ask for two single rooms. Slayn can 
respond by saying...

-     One twin room is fine.
-     One must be the royal suite.  
-     ...                           

After Annette leaves to get changed Raimy complains that Annette is taking way 
too long. While you wait you can speak to the Fortune-Teller. The Fortune-
Teller will either tell you about Character or Relationship. When you try to 
leave Annette will come out in a different dress. Slayn responds by saying...

-     I was stunned by your beauty!
-     I didn't even recognize you.  
-     You're like another person.   
-     ...I can't see your legs!     
-     This isn't like you!
-     This is scandalous!

After leaving the hotel, go to the right and to the castle. When you get there 
only Annette is allowed to enter leaving Slayn on his own. Now that she is 
gone you can deliver the letter to Mary. Mary is located near the closed inn 
at the entrance of town. To use the letter, stand in front of Mary within 
speaking range, go into the items and select the letter. When she says 
something about the letter, respond by saying...

-     A sick man gave it to me.      (Choose)
-     I happened upon it by chance.
-     ...

Mary will read the letter and then decide that she has nothing to live for.  
Slayn can...

-     Urge her not to give up!       (Choose)
-     Take the letter.
-     Refuse the letter.

After urging her not to give up she will give you back the letter that is now 
called Letter of the New World. With that task completed Raimy will be happy 
that your task is done but will also sense that you have received another 
Memento with a promise. The Valuable Items screen will come up and you must 
choose the item. Choosing either the Thief's Button or the Small Key Pendant 
will make Raimy happy. After that Raimy will leave. Return to the hotel and 
two guards will stop you. Seems like a case of mistaken identity. After the 
guards leave a strange man will speak to you and will tell you that he will 
speak to you later in private. There is nothing more to do now so just rest in 
your room. After a bad dream, you wake up and Raimy is there. She asks if you 
are alright.

-     I'm fine, thank you Raimy.
-     Thank you for waking me.
-     W...why are you...?

After answering her first question, she will respond and then you will say...

-     But really, why are you back?
-     Did you forget something?
-     SO, you missed me?

After, Raimy will ask to join you. Don't bother saying no because she won't 
take no for an answer. After you awaken it will be the next morning and 
Annette will be waiting for you. Show her the letter of the New World and she 
will suggest that you investigate further and to go southeast of Schwartzhaas. 
Leave the city an go back to Schwartzhaas. When you arrive in Schwartzhaas, 
take the east exit and go to the Central City of Bibliostock.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
The next location that you need to go to is the Southern Village of Bornia but 
before you do that you must stop by Bibliostock first. Go to the house on the 
right and knock on the door. A man who has lost his Silver Bell is looking for 
it. Show him the bell and he will give you the China Vase. Take the path from 
the western part of town and you will arrive at the Imperial Library. When you 
arrive you will see an impatient man trying to get inside. After the man 
leaves go to the main part of town and speak to a man near the top with gray 
hair and he will tell you that Rolandia's tunnel is closed and that all 
questions must be aimed toward Sir Granford's manservant. In the northern part 
of town and you will see the Impatient Man trying to get into the mansion for 
an audience with Sir Granford. After failing again the man stands near the 
fountain flustered. Talk to the butler yourself and he will allow you passage. 
Once you turn toward the fountain the impatient man will ask to join you. You 
can't refuse no matter what so just agree to let him join. You now have Hugh 
in your party. Below the fountain is a man walking around. Speak to him and he 
will sell you an Art Kit for 50 Elm. Take them and go to the east part of the 
main portion of the city. An old man will be standing at the pier. If you 
return to him later then he will give you a good art tip. Now that you are 
finished here, exit the city and return to Schwartzhaas to get the Battle 
Timer. Exit the city and go south of Bibliostock to reach Bornia. A soon as 
you enter town a bunch of soldiers will be witnessed stealing from the 
townsfolk. You can...

-     Teach them a lesson now!
-     Check equipment , then confront them.
-     Pretend it's none of our business.

Sneak around the buildings and when the commander asks what you are respond...

-     Put back what you've taken!
-     (glare at him)
-     Yeah, wanderers. That's it.

The actual mission is simple but if you want to get the most experience points 
out of it you will need to kill the Commander. To do that, have both Annette 
and Slayn use Dash and make a path that goes for the Commander. Once they 
reach the Commander they can double-team him while his subordinates beat up on 
your characters. The other soldiers aren't that high leveled so you should be 
fine for a bit. If Annette or Slayn is injured have Hugh heal them. Sometime 
during the battle a soldier named Orpheus will appear to finish the Commander. 
Having Slayn and Annette on the right and left will cause Orpheus to come from 
the bottom of the village. After all of the enemies are defeated you thank 
Orpheus and then you are on your way.

After the battle as you try to go north you will be stopped by some villagers 
who will thank you. Your group returns the stolen items and as a reward the 
villagers give you a Leather Suit. Talk to the villager with a hat and he will 
tell you about Monika. Slayn responds...

-     Monika?
-     She can use magic?
-     What's she like?
-     Is she cute?

Talk to the girl at the closed shop and she will ask if Orpheus was there. Say 
yes and she will tell you something interesting. Go to the northern part of 
town. Visit a house to the north below the northernmost one to see Monika. She 
will talk about the Space-Time Fusion Project. Slayn responds...

-     But what is Space-Time Fusion? *
-     Will it really save people?
-     Can you take us to the research site?

She agrees if you will stop by Michelle's house on the way out of the village. 
Slayn responds by saying...

-     All right! *
-     No problem.
-     I don't think so. You just stay here.

After that Monika will join your party. Michelle's house is near the shop. 
Knock on the door and the butler will let you inside. The house looks bigger 
on the inside than you would think. When introducing yourself you can choose 
the Normal Introduction or No Introduction. Since you've never met the normal 
one should be good enough. When you get control of Slayn, Michelle will tell 
you how she feels and Slayn can respond...

-     I'm so sorry. *
-     On display?
-     I can see what you mean.
-     Why don't you find a way to leave?

Speak to her again and she will tell you that she has guests so rarely and ask 
what you would like to talk about.

-     Does your family live here, too?
-     I saw your brother. *
-     ...


Talk to Michelle some more and once Monika returns it's time to leave. It's 
now time to head to the Mt. Regen Border Tunnel. A lot of the enemies in that 
tunnel are susceptible to fire so you may want to equip a Flame Weapon or Holy 
Weapon Gem onto your rings to make the battles inside easier. Head south from 
Bornia Village and you will reach the tunnel that leads to Rolandia.

When you arrive at the Mt. Regen Border Tunnel the guards will have already 
been notified that you are on your way. After the guard opens the door to the 
cave enter inside and the party will be appalled at what they find inside. 
Slayn will see a ghost in the corner. Inside of the cave you will find a total 
of four ghosts. Speak to them all and you will return them to the cycle of 
life. There is a door that exits to the northeast, approach it and a ghost 
will appear. He won't let you by until you have your friends with you but he 
will tell you about a gift he wants you to have. Check the southern portion of 
the room and you will find a Lv4 Magic Lv gem. When you're ready to leave 
speak to Annette and the journey will continue. With your entire party back 
together you can now continue deeper into the tunnel. Go into the next room 
and down the stairs to B1. The first thing that you notice is that monsters 
are walking around. They will not attack until you are in sight of them. 
Normally dungeons have a random nature to them but this one is set. 

1.     Take the southwest exit into the next room and then go southeast to 
       reach a room with a treasure chest.

2.     Return to where you started B1 and follow the map until you reach your 
       first three-way. Go southeast where you will reach a room that contains 
       another treasure chest.

3.     After getting the chest return to the three-way and follow the cave  
       rooms to the southwest. You will eventually reach another set of 
       stairs. Use them and you will find yourself back on floor 1F. Exit the 
       tunnel and you will be in Rolandia.

Once you are in Rolandia you must go to the east past the mountain and then 
south toward the ocean. You will eventually reach a small peninsula with a 
device that looks similar to the one s that you have seen at the entrance of 
various towns. These are called Transfer Gates and this one will transfer you 
to Featheria Isle. If you travel directly south and then around the mountain 
to the east, Monika will say that you shouldn't stray too far. Slay 
responds...

-     You're right.
-     We should be careful.
-     Don't worry.

Once you arrive at the Transfer Gate Hugh will say something rude to Monika. 
Slayn has many options of how to respond. After answering your party will heal 
to full automatically. 

-     Don't worry about what he said. 
-     You'll be a beautiful lady soon.
-     You'll fly soon enough...       
-     Hey! He just spoke the truth.
-     We should leave now.

Beautiful Shell  (Magic Barrier Generator 1)

Once you arrive on Featheria Isle, Monika will suggest that you search for the 
Space-Time control device. There is no map of this area so you will have to 
explore the old fashioned way. Start by traveling west to reach Magic Barrier 
Generator 1. There are four of these in all on Featheria Isle. You can't get 
inside but if you speak to the Child he will give you the Beautiful Shell. 
Next go to Magic Barrier Generator 2. The Merchant her is a Ring Smith but he 
also can heal your party for a small fee as well.

The other two Magic Barrier Generators don't have anything of interest so just 
cross the bridge and enter the large tower. Make sure to save your game her 
because a small battle is coming up. After you hear the alarm, follow the 
Featherian into the large gate on the left that leads to the Reactor Core. 
When you arrive at the top someone is stealing the Space-Time Crystal. She 
casts a spell on all of the soldiers and begins to leave with the crystal just 
as you arrive.

You won't be able to catch the mysterious woman before she escapes nor can you 
break the spell on the on the Defensive Corps until she leaves. Start by 
having Slayn, Annette and Hugh rush toward the two armored soldiers while 
avoiding attacking the Defensive corps and have Monika cast Cure. Once the 
Mysterious Woman leaves you will not have to worry about killing the Defensive 
Corps anymore. To get a Mission Complete, your party members must deal the 
final blow to the soldiers.

After the battle the Featherian will report to the Queen. Use the Transfer 
Gate to return to the entrance then take the Transfer Gate to the Control 
Center. When you emerge from the gate speak to the old Featherian operating 
the console on the right. As soon as you go to the left the Featherian Queen 
will speak about an alternate crystal. Speak to the Queen and you will 
volunteer to retrieve the crystal. It is located in a mine in the north of 
Rolandia. You will receive the Start Pendant so that you can travel to the 
mine whenever you wish. Talk to Monika's Grandfather again and you will see a 
scene with her and Hugh. Return to the Transfer Gate that brought you to 
Featheria Isle and you will be met by a Featherian that seems to know Monika. 
After he speaks, Slayn responds...

-     Are you alright?      *
-     What was that about?
-     ...
 
Once you are back in Rolandia continue to the east until you reach the mining 
town of Tzaitstein.

The town is actually a ghost town but if you need to heal then you can for 
free at the deserted inn. Doing so you will get an event with Slayn and Hugh. 
Once you travel deeper into the town the party will split up and search the 
town. There is a shop in this town but only Slayn can see it. Take the time 
right now to purchase some items. Antidote Herbs and Mind Tonics will come in 
handy once you are inside the Mine.

The mine goes down 5 floors and there is a randomness too it. Your goal on 
each floor is to find the stairs that lead down. Just look at your map to see 
which way each room exits. You may find the exit quickly but that doesn't mean 
that you should take it. Some of the floors in the mine have treasure chests. 
When you reach your first one, Raimy will point it out and explain that once 
you leave floor then the treasure chest will disappear. Once you reach floor 
B5, save your game and in the last room with the arrow signs, grab the Fire 
Scroll in the chest to the right. In the back of the cave on floor B5 is the 
Time Crystal Ore. Stand near the glowing rocks and press the X button to pick 
it up. To make this battle easier, equip the Lv4 Dispel gem on everyone except 
for one person. On the way out you will be confronted by a Mysterious Man and 
some troops. After saying something about Zion, Slayn responds...

-     We won't give up!
-     Zion?
-     Your sense of style is undeniable!
-     Your defeat is all but assured!
-     Why won't you leave us alone?

This is an easy fight to escape from if you have the skill Bait because by 
using it even the Mysterious Man will chase the person that used it. If you 
want to take out the Mysterious Man and finish the mission your best bet is to 
stick with magic. Annette started out by using Dash and attacked the soldier 
on the left. The other three characters used magic the entire time taking out 
the Monk first so that he won't heal anyone and then they went after the 
Mysterious Man. When the soldier that Annette didn't go after gets near Slayn, 
have Slayn kill him as fast as possible and continue to cast magic spells at 
the man. Annette after she has taken care of her soldier should make her way 
to the left and kill one of the Magicians. After that she needs to see what 
the Mysterious Man is doing and move away from him. When the Mysterious Man 
gets close too your party it is time to use Bait. This is great because he 
will abandon his objective and go after Annette. If he gets too close remember 
that you still have Dash. While being chased, Annette should finish off the 
other two magicians. The Mysterious Man has 750 HP so you will need something 
more than magic to deal all of that damage. I had Hugh follow and attack. As 
long as Bait is in effect, he will not attack. The only attack that he will do 
is the Penetration Attack but to have him do that two characters would need to 
be in a line. Defeating him this early earned me a ton of experience points 
and got me a very nice ring.


After leaving the area with the ore the group talks about their adversary and 
suspects that he is the one responsible. Slayn's response is...

-     Hmmm. That's a troublesome revelation.
-     He won't be allowed to succeed. *
-     I'd like to see what he has in mind.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Now that you are back at the Control Tower, return the Space-Time Crystal Ore 
to either the Queen or the Engineer. The Engineer will prepare everything and 
the Queen will tell you to rest up while everything is being prepared. During 
the Farewell Banquet speak to the various citizens of Xironia. Mary from 
Falkenfreuk is also one of the people going to the new world. She is near the 
bottom. Speak to her and she will give you a Secret Injury Elixir. When you 
are finished use the transporter to exit. Once the Queen asks you to stay 
speak to Annette and the Engineer will return to begin the Space-Time Fusion. 
Of course the moment that the fusion is about to occur something bad happens. 
All of the others rush to Magic Barrier Generator 3 to fix the problem. Use 
the Transfer Gate to return to the entrance and then to Magic Barrier 
Generator 3 to the southeast. When you arrive the fighting has already started 
and Annette and the others are holding off the soldiers. After the Strange Man 
arrives, Slayn arrives as well.

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

==========
|Strategy|
==========
The set up is a simple one with Hugh and Annette guarding the Generator while 
Monika and Slayn guard the entrance. Monika should destroy the enemies in the 
back by using Magic while Slayn disposes of the Archer and the Magician with 
his sword. Annette can take care of the soldier while Hugh goes after the 
Mysterious Union Leader. Your goal in this fight is protection so don't let 
the enemies slip behind you. Make sure Hugh steals from the Mysterious Union 
Leader before dealing the final blow. Once he is defeated Slayn will 
respond...

-     Are you all right?
-     Who are you?
-     What is your purpose?
-     You disgust me!
-     You should have died!

After the Union Leader is taken care of just get rid of the rest of the enemy 
troops. Viktor will join up after the battle and Monika will ask that you 
accompany her to Bornia. Annette will say something about not letting a girl 
walk alone and Slayn will respond...

-     Of course not!
-     I'd be happy to have her join us!
-     Sure, it is on the way.
-     I don't really want her to.
-     I'm tired of baby sitting!

When you reach the Transport Gate, Linasis will be waiting. He is looking for 
the person responsible for Rumika and when you find that person report to him 
at the fourth device. Once back in Rolandia go back through the Mt. Regen 
Tunnel and back to Bornia Village.

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

I had Hugh use Dash and then Bait. Bait will draw the enemy toward him making 
it easy to pick off the rest of the enemies. The important thing is that you 
get close enough to take out the Archers before Vincent arrives. As for the 
Assassin there is no way to get him because Orpheus gets to him to quickly. 
The Assassin will escape and Vincent will come in to mop up. It's a fairly 
easy battle to win but make sure that your team is the one that gets all of 
the kills. Vincent can't get a kill in this fight. 

After the battle speak to Monika. Slayn can say...

-     Cheer up.
-     We're with you.
-     You can build a new one!

After speaking to Monika talk to Vincent or Orpheus and when he thanks you for 
saving the village say...

-     Piece of cake.
-     No problem.
-     Don't mention it!
-     I did it for Monika.
-     It was such a pain.
-     What can I say? I like battles.

Before you leave the village its time to visit Michelle. Give her the 
Beautiful Shell and she will request to see star-shaped sand. When the group 
tries to leave Michelle requests to speak with Slayn alone. She asks Slayn if 
he's aware of the fairy flying next to him. Slayn responds...

-     I know.
-     Really? I had no idea!
-     You can see her?!

Now it's time to head back to the Federation. On your way back you are going 
to stop in Schwartzhaas. Schwartzhaas has changed a bit so make sure to 
explore everything.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Now that you are back in Schwartzhaas, quite a bit has changed, like the town 
being overrun by James' soldiers. This is not a problem but could be later on 
because of the Alliance with Theodora. When you reach South Schwartzhaas a 
woman that would like to speak with you will greet you. Her name is Yayoi and 
she can cure Slayn's memory with Psychic Cure. Next go to the in and meet her. 
Inside of the Inn Yayoi is waiting for you. She will take you to her room and 
attempt to awaken Slayn's memories. After he awakens Hugh will ask if you 
remembered what happened. You can say...

-     Yes
-     No

Hugh will explain about Spirit Masters and then will explain everything to 
you. After Raimy explains about a Dark Spirit Master and Hugh comments, Yayoi 
says...

-     Sorry...
-     I know that.
-     Yeah, thanks a lot.
-     Wonderful.
-     Leave me alone!

The next morning Yayoi tells Slayn not to reveal what was found out about him. 
Yayoi is looking for the one that betrayed her clan. She will leave after 
that. Slayn will now have the title of Man with Gray's Soul. Next you must 
leave Schwartzhaas from the north and go to Voltone City. Once you leave 
Schwartzhaas you won't be able to return.

When you return to Voltone one of the things that you will notice is that the 
shop inventory has changed. You can look at the shop now or wait a little bit 
it's your choice.

Studded Leather  33 STR      1200 Elm         Recovery Medicine         8 Elm
Buff Coat        43 STR      2580 Elm         Antidote Herb             6 Elm
Protector Jacket 40 STR      1730 Elm         Mind Tonic               14 Elm
Mystic Robe      32 STR      1550 Elm
Apron            33 STR       980 Elm


Return to the President's Mansion where Annette's father will meet you. He 
will tell you that you and your group can use the apartments in Old Voltone as 
your base of operations. Go to Old Voltone (The area where you met the 
Fortune-Teller) and talk to the husky man at the entrance. The tour of the 
area will begin with the apartment flat (20 rooms on 4 floors), the lab, the 
shop area, and the Remington Detective Agency. To rearrange your party speak 
to the gentlemen at the entrance. 

===================
     The Lab
===================
First show Viktor to the lab so that he can get started on his work (whatever 
it is). Viktor will leave the party now. If you would like to use Viktor then 
you need to rearrange your party since only four members can be used at a 
given time. Speak to Viktor and he will tell you about developing new items. 
An explanation of items will be shown to you afterward and then you will be 
able to start creating. One thing that you must take note of is that when 
Viktor is out of the lab, research comes to a halt. Here are the Items that 
Victor will create initially.

Ambrosia              4000 Elm
Fairy Tears           3300 Elm
Life Apple             600 Elm
Wisdom Apple           600 Elm
Gale Apple             600 Elm


===================
  The Apartments
===================
Enter the Apartments and you will see many rooms and an elevator. The elevator 
leads to the upper floors. You won't need to go to those right now. Each of 
your characters will have their own room. Go to that room and leave the 
characters in there. Monika is in room 104, Hugh is in 103, Annette is in 102 
and Slayn is in 101. After dropping all of the characters off in their rooms 
Slayn will be alone. If you haven't done so yet, visit the shop area or the 
Remington Detective Agency.


===================
  The Shop Area
===================
In this area there will be various shops and a kitchen. Right now there is 
only the Ring Shop. The Ring Shop sells various gems levels 1-3 but as the 
game progresses the inventory in the shop will change. The kitchen is another 
interesting place because while you can heal your entire party for 1 Elm a 
person, there is a special menu that only Slayn can access when he's alone. If 
you eat these more than two or three times the effects may not happen so just 
eat in moderation. A special character-enhancing dish costs 500 Elm.

Vice Dish
Shyness Dish
Cynical Dish
Romantic Dish
Deviant Dish
Honesty Dish
Irony Dish
Genius Dish
Foolish Dish


==============================
  Remington Detective Agency
==============================
Enter the Remington Detective Agency and speak to the man at the desk, he will 
say "You're Slayn, right?" you respond...

-     Am I that famous?
-     No wonder you're the detective!
-     You're no ordinary detective!

After answering, Remington will tell you about Agent Report Files. These files 
can be read at any time and give you information about what's going on in the 
world. There are also "off sheet" reports that deal with other information but 
require a fee to read. The only way to get these is to come alone so make sure 
that whenever Slayn is alone you come here. If you speak to Remington again he 
will give you some new information about Sir Granford's son in Bibliostock. 
When you have the time make sure to investigate the rumors. Talk to Rudgker 
about off-sheet information and select I have a request. 

Off-Sheet Information
---------------------
Assassin named Randolf            50 Elm
Assassin named Gray               80 Elm

==============================
  Building Relationships
==============================
This is the first time that you get to really build a relationship with your 
characters. By going to the room of one of your characters you can go out to 
eat with them. Who you choose first makes a difference in how the other party 
members will view you. Not speaking to them at all will surely hurt how they 
feel about you.

If you choose Monika she will comment about the food and Slayn will respond...

-     It's because of the time.
-     The Federation supplies are low.
-     Word of mouth is sometimes wrong.  (Choose)

If you choose Hugh, he will mention that he has his own situation to deal with 
and you can respond...

-     Situation?
-     That's all right.  (Choose)

If you choose Annette, she will ask Slayn if he thinks the others are all 
right in the new world. Your responses are...

-     Probably.  (Choose)
-     I don't know.
-     It will be a hard life. 

After selecting one of these three, speak to the other two and don't forget 
that the order that you speak to them says a lot. There will be other 
relationship building opportunities through out the game so make sure you 
speak to a different person first when you have the opportunity. 



After you are finished doing everything, go to Slayn's bed and rest. Following 
the scene at night it will be morning and the rest of the party will already 
be at the President's Mansion in the meeting room. Go there to receive the 
details about your next mission. The mission is to guide the supply transport 
safely through the mountains. Accept the mission the first time you are asked. 
Annette and Hugh will volunteer for the mission meaning that you must select 
one more person. Because Viktor needs to investigate the Transfer Gate, Monika 
will go along. If you return to Old Voltone then you can speak to the man at 
the entrance to dismiss your party. Once Slayn is alone speak to the Party 
members again one by one.

Speak to Monika and she will ask what you are doing at that hour. Your 
responses are...

-     Just killing time.
-     I'm teasing you!
-     You did a good job today.  (Choose)
-     It's not like you to speak like that.

Talk to Hugh and a conversation with Raimy will take place. After Raimy asks 
what her role is in the group you can respond with...

-     Mascot
-     Mood Doctor.  (Choose)
-     Worthless. 
-     No Idea.

Speak to Annette and she will just say Hi. You can say...

-     May I see your room?
-     Would you like to go out?  (Choose)
-     Nothing, just killing time.

After you are done meeting with your Party Members, return to the man at the 
entrance and he will have a new option, "Race Someone". This is a little mini-
game that you can play to get some extra Elm. To play you must first select a 
challenger. After the challenger is selected the man will tell you about them 
and give you some odds. Apparently the opponent isn't restricted to people 
currently in your party because you can race Yayoi. She is very fast but if 
you win you will receive 1000 Elm. If you have had your fill of racing, Gather 
your party, leave town and head for the Federation Lookout to begin your 
mission.

When you arrive at the Federation Lookout, you will see a confused man 
standing next to the ladder. Speak to him and he will tell you about 
Cooperation Magic if you agree to help him. After he is done explaining it to 
you, talk to the Corps Chief and get ready to begin the mission. The transport 
isn't armed so you will need to get rid of the enemies before they pass 
through the mountain. After traveling to the west you will reach an 
Aggressival Fortress. When asked what to do respond...

-     Conquer the fort before they get here. (Choose)
-     Wait for them and conquer it together.
-     Retreat and have a drink.

After the plan is discussed, use Raimy to scout out the enemy. If you can 
light the fires without the enemy noticing you will be in luck. Control Raimy 
in the same manner as you control your characters and when you are ready to go 
press the X Button.

After the first time that you quit, Annette will say what is that sound? Your 
responses are...

-     We have to go!
-     I was just doing the image training.  
-     What do we do now?
-     I was losing my nerve.
-     I was having a little conversation.

Approach the wall and you will light the first fire. Remember that you need to 
get out of harms way so Hugh can do his thing.

After the first fire is lit the guard will spot you. Attack the initial 
Aggressival Troops and work your way to the left side of the fort wall to 
light it. I used Annette and Slayn to get near the fort while Hugh and Monika 
took care of the Mages. After lighting the second fire return to the area 
where you started and the mission will be complete. If you are looking to pick 
up some good rings and gain a lot of experience then destroy as many 
reinforcements as possible. They will be easy to defeat at first but as the 
battle goes longer they become stronger and stronger. After the battle the 
Transport will safely pass to Falkenfreuk City.

When you arrive in Falkenfreuk, the Corps Chief will be speaking with Kenneth. 
After they leave Kenneth will tell you that he needs to inspect the cargo and 
to meet him a t the castle later. This would be a good time to walk around 
town and explore. The group must decide what to do while they wait, you can 
respond by saying...

-     Just follow me.
-     But, I might choose something crazy!
-     Let's explore outside town.

Not much has changed since the last time you were her but there are a few 
things to do. First you should check out the new gems for sale. The girl that 
was sold out last time now has some more and they are of the level 4 and 5 
variety. After that go to the hotel and speak with the Fortune-Teller. The 
Fortune-Teller can evaluate how well you get along with your party members but 
it is important to speak with her because it happens that she needs a place to 
stay. Point her in the direction of Voltone and you will gain a new person for 
your base. One thing that you may also notice is that there is also another 
option called Future. The Fortune-Teller will see events yet to come. After 
you are done here, exit town and cross over the bridge to the west. It leads 
to the Western Village of Taoberia.

Before entering the village, go south from where the village is and you will 
see a small beach. Press the X Button while standing on it and you will get 
the item "Star Sand". This is for Michelle so make sure to drop it off once 
you go by there again. Enter the village and speak to the villagers. One lady 
will ask if you've heard anything about her son. If you speak to some of the 
other villagers you will find out that a boy has entered the nearby Prisoner 
Tower. In the back of the village is a Transfer Gate. The Transfer Gate works 
but unfortunately it can't be used because the corresponding one is not 
functional. After you are finished here exit the village and go to the 
northwest to reach Prisoner Tower.

The Prisoner Tower is a random generated dungeon and that means that the 
layout and any thing else that you find on the first two floors will be 
different each time you enter. The Tower itself has only 4 floors but a very 
difficult boss awaits you at the top. Make it to the top of the tower with 
haste and save your game. Once you venture into the final room you will alert 
the Master Guardian. The Master Guardian is tough but slow. Keep your party 
away from it and defeat it using Magic.

Use Dash with the characters that have them and attack the Evil Mages to the 
left and right. After they are defeat you will see a re and green object on 
the ground. Those objects are keys to unlock the cells containing the Taros 
Prototypes. Don't use the keys; instead have someone with Bait use that 
technique and have Taros chase them while the others keep hitting him from 
behind. After the Taros is defeated the Red and Green Prototypes will be 
unleashed. This is the easy part of the battle because the Red and Green Taros 
don't like each other and will end up fighting each other. You just need to be 
a vulture and get the final kill. After the battle you will receive the Star 
Emblem. Use the Star Emblem on the star-shaped lock and you will rescue the 
child trapped behind the door. After using the Star Emblem it won't go away. 
Remember there is till the cave near Voltone that this particular item can be 
used. After you have collected the treasure return to Taoberia Village and 
accept the mother's invitation to stay the night. After leaving the village 
return to Falkenfreuk.

After arriving back in Falkenfreuk, go to the castle where Kenneth and another 
soldier are speaking to each other. Kenneth will mention that he needs to get 
to the Federation and he would like you to take him there. Before leaving 
town, make sure that you stay at the hotel. That night the mysterious man that 
said he knew you earlier will pay you a visit. Answer the door and the man 
will say...

-     Who are you.
-     Long time, no see.
-     I'm not Gray!

He introduces himself as informant Tony. Speak to him again and he will tell 
you the story that happened between you and Randolf. You respond...

-     I remember.
-     I can't remember.
-     Where's the Gem now?

When you awaken the next morning leave town and head west toward Schwartzhaas. 
Remember that once you enter Schwartzhaas you must go forward so make sure 
that you are well prepared before taking on this task. Once you are inside 
stop by Kenneth's house. If you don't know which one it is it's the middle 
house on the left in South Schwartzhaas. Kenneth will see his family and then 
when morning time comes it will be time to leave. Speak to the little girl a 
couple of times and you will find out that she can hear Raimy. Go over to the 
crates in North Schwartzhaas where you met Raimy and press the X Button to get 
back to the Federation. Once over the wall make your way to the bridge. You 
will get spotted and must fight your way through.

This can be a difficult battle because it's so easy to get overwhelmed in this 
battle. Start by having all of your characters make a beeline toward the 
bridge. This will bring out most of the reinforcements but at least you will 
be close to escaping. The only obstacle preventing you from reaching the 
Federation are two soldiers that will block the bridge. After that you are 
free to cross at your leisure. If you begin to take too much damage, use an 
item to heal. Taking on Vincent does seem like suicide and I may try to take 
that course at another time. After reaching the Federation a small scene with 
Orpheus occurs. Now that you are in the Federation, return to Voltone City.

When you arrive in Voltone, take Kenneth to the President right away. 
President Burns is waiting in the meeting room with Viktor. After the meeting 
is adjourned, go back to the apartment and speak to your Party Members 
separately.

Speak to Annette and she will ask if you are going to ask her something. You 
can respond...

-     Who am I?
-     It was about old friends...        (Choose)
-     No...nothing.

Hugh will want to have a meal and during the meal he will ask if you have 
noticed that he uses comedy to deal with situations. Respond by saying...

-     ...what can I say?
-     Exactly!                           (Choose)
-     Comedy? This is serious business.
-     Hey, all you need is love.

Monika will want to go out and talk. She will ask Slayn if he's ever flown. 
You can respond with...

-     Certainly!
-     Humans cannot fly!
-     No, but I wish I could.            (Choose)
-     I ate this mushroom once...


If you are finished building relationships visit the Remington Detective 
Agency. New information for the Off-Sheet reports is available now that some 
time has passed. Examine the Off-Sheet reports and you will get information 
about Randolf and Gray. These investigations are on-going so make sure to come 
back and see if anything has changed. The final place is the Shop Area. The 
Fortune-Teller from Falkenfreuk and the Armor salesman from Taoberia have set 
up their stands. Take a look at his inventory as well as the Ring shop where 
Level 4 gems are now for sale.

Big Ground Robe      49 STR     4700 Elm  


The last place of interest is the Arena. The Arena is now open and it is a 
great place to get Rings and other items. I highly recommend spending some 
time her so that you can at least Unlock the 2 on 2 and 4 on 4 Divisions. To 
do that, just complete the Legend Class in 1 on 1. I was also able to complete 
the upper and Silver Class Tournaments as well but taking the gold class on 
means taking a hit in the Wallet. Once you are finished it's time to continue 
on with the adventure. Gather your party and exit the city. Your next 
destination is the Guard Ruins to the north.

Use the Star Emblem at the Ruins to gain entrance. This is another random 
dungeon so don't count on getting the same items from chests or seeing the 
same layout save the bottom floor. Once you reach the deepest part of the 
dungeon the Master Guardian's will become active. You must fight in order to 
get the communication device.

The first thing that you want to do is to take out the four monsters before 
going after the Snail Golems. The trick to beating the Snail Golems is to know 
that they only attack using line of sight meaning that if you are not in a 
direct line they won't attack. Focus on defeating them two at a time, 
combining the strength of two characters to attack one. Once all four are 
defeated the door to the northeastern part of the room will open up. Inside is 
a chest containing the Message Stone. Now that you have the Message Stone, 
return to Voltone and give it to Viktor.

Speak to Monika and she will say " What? You...you've spoken to my 
grandfather? After she explains why she is sad, respond by saying...
-     Is that why you stayed in Bornia?
-     Is that why you stay with us?
-     That must be so difficult...   (Choose)

After that she will mention about searching for her father. You can then 
respond...
-     I have no idea.
-     I will help you find him!   (Choose)
-     I hope you find him...
-     What a hopeless situation.


Advance the story by resting. The next morning Annette will come in and tell 
you that the device is complete. Go to the lab where Viktor will explain how 
the Communication Device works. Kenneth will then give you the details of your 
next mission. It's dangerous but it will succeed with the new Communication 
Device. Take the device and head toward the Federation Outpost to meet with 
the transport squadron. Before leaving, go to the President's Mansion and 
visit Annette's mother's room. Annette will be happy that you remembered and 
she will like you a little bit more because of it. You'll need to look for her 
mother's diary. The Diary can be found at the head of the bed near the 
pillows.

This mission is quite simple but only if you use Cooperation Magic. Start by 
having Annette Dash around to the eastern part of the map to destroy a Lead 
Soldier and then come back around for the Archer. Eliminating a Lead Soldier 
early will minimize the damage being done to the transport. Monika should 
concentrate on healing while Slayn and Hugh cast Ice Barrage and Wind Cutter 
to combine for Blizzard. The reason why Blizzard is so useful is because it 
has good range and it can take out multiple enemies at once. The Aggressival 
Soldiers will get close but by using Blizzard twice you can destroy them all. 
After they are defeated only the Priest and two Lead Soldiers remain. Take the 
far Lead Soldier out with Magic and have Annette get the Priest and the Lead 
Soldier near the fort. After the fight go to Falkenfreuk City.

Monika will see Linasis when you go up to the downtown area of Falkenfreuk. He 
still has no leads on Rumika so he flies away. Save your game at the hotel and 
then continue toward the castle. When you reach the Castle the Dark Crystal 
Ceremony will be taking place. After witnessing the Dark Crystal chant, return 
to the Hotel. A Wizard will be blocking the save spot. You can't save right 
now which is bad news. Good thing you saved before hand. When you walk 
downstairs to the entrance a group of Undead Soldiers attack the town.

The term casualties refer to civilians. The soldiers are there merely to 
obstruct the undead. Start by having Slayn, Hugh and Annette Dash toward the 
shopkeeper. Annette can select one of the Soldier Corpses to attack. I had 
Hugh equipped with Lv6 Magic Might and Lv6 Magic Mirror. The reason for this 
is so that he may attack twice. Once Slayn and Hugh are close enough, have 
Hugh cast Wind Cutter and Slayn Fire Arrows. Doing this will cast the spell 
Fireball if you use Coop. The Undead Soldiers are weak against fire so it 
should be an easy fight due to the fact that most of them advance forward in a 
group. Barbara will appear but she is nothing more than a pest. Just in case 
the soldiers damage the Civilians with spells, have Monika heal them using 
Cure. After they are all defeated, speak to the woman in the purple dress and 
she will give you 45 Elm. Next, go to the hotel and rest at the hotel. In the 
morning you will meet Yayoi on your way out of town. She will join you as you 
go back to Voltone City to stop Barbara from stealing the Water Crystal.

This battle was tough because of the numbers and the fact that the enemy is 
not only focused on you but the citizens as well. I started out by having Hugh 
use Dash and attack the Priest Soldier and then chased down the enemies in 
that part of the city. Yayoi will attack the Priest Soldier on her first turn 
making it easy for you to destroy him. I had Annette cast Attack Up on Slayn 
while Slayn went up the stairs toward Barbara taking on the enemies along the 
way. Monika is a healer whether it's magic or items and she must make sure 
that the three guarding the mansion stay alive. After 4 enemies are defeated 
the Water Crystal will be stolen. Barbara and her accomplice will teleport 
away. Once she is gone finish up the rest of the soldiers. I don't know what 
the Mission Complete requirements are but I am guessing that Barbara must be 
defeated. I will try in a future update to come up with a strategy that is 
solid in defeating her. After the battle a meeting takes place inside of the 
mansion. Afterward, Yayoi and Viktor will join you to go to the Bibliostock 
Library. Speak to one other and you will be on your way. Hugh was working out 
for me so I chose him.

   Items

Ambrosia
Magical Molasses Jar


It's time to do some relationship building so return to the Apartments and 
dismiss everyone so that you can speak to them separately. On your way there 
speak to the man at the food kiosk below the mansion to receive and Ambrosia.
In Old Voltone speak to Renault's Friend and receive the Magical Molasses Jar. 
The Magical Molasses Jar can be used prior to racing. It will make it a little 
easier to win. Talk to the Doctor inside of the lab and he will tell you that 
he has discovered more about Cooperation Magic. You will also want to dismiss 
your party so that you can have Viktor create a new item. Now is the time to 
build relationships with your Party Members.

==============================
    Relationship Building
==============================

+---------+
| Annette |
+---------+
Knock on Annette's door and she won't be there. After two knocks she will 
enter the apartments with her mother's diary. She wants to be a lone with it 
so just leave her alone for now.

+---------+
|   Hugh  |
+---------+
Hugh will continue to give Raimy lessons on Jokes. This lesson is entitled, 
"How to React to a Joke". Raimy will be happy after the lesson and Hugh 
promises to continue at a later time.
 
+---------+
|  Monika |
+---------+
Monika wants to take a walk. She speaks about her father and Slayn responds to 
her by saying...
-     What if you found out?
-     You want him to care about you, right?
-     Do you have something to say to him?    (Choose)
-     Do you hate him?

+---------+
|  Yayoi  |
+---------+
Yayoi will ask Slayn if he would like something to eat. Say yes and Yayoi will 
tell you more about Barbara and the Water Crystal. The benefit of spending 
time with her is friendship.
 

After you are finished building relationships, go to the Remington Detective 
Agency. If you check out the Off-Sheet reports now, you will notice that four 
more are available for request.

-     Mrs. Burns Death              200 Elm
-     Central Gate Location          30 Elm
-     Monika's Father               100 Elm
-     Annette's Recent Behavior     100 Elm

Once you are finished it's time to go to Bibliostock. Before Heading out, take 
a look at the new items for sale in the Armor Shop.

When you arrive in Schwartzhaas, someone will call Hugh over. Walk over there 
and listen in to what the two are talking about. The mystery man will turn out 
to be Hugh's Rival and he is very angry. After that is completed speak to Hugh 
and join back up with your party. Of course if Hugh wasn't in your party then 
none of this will happen. When you reach the center area of Schwartzhaas 
Kenneth will be there ready to defend the city. Since you need to get to 
Bibliostock anyways you might as well help out. You can exit the city to the 
south but you won't find much. In Taoberia Village if you decide to go there, 
Viktor will mention something like he has been there before. Viktor will then 
ask Slayn how he feels. Respond with...

-     Fighting is so...messy.
-     You're a firecracker, Viktor!
-     Yes, I am prepared to fight.   
-     I'm looking forward to the fight!
-     I shouldn't be reckless.

When you enter the eastern part of the city where the battle is taking place, 
Yayoi will tell you about using Magic Before the battle begins. This is useful 
because you can cast spells like Cycle up to make your characters react faster 
after making an attack. Also make sure that Slayn and Hugh are up front. When 
you are ready, talk to the Theodora Soldier and he will ask you what your plan 
is. I chose Magic Support.

-     Ask for Magic support.
-     Charge!
-     Retreat!

I began by Cycling Up all 4 of my party members and then I used the rest of 
the fight to cast Blizzard taking out multiple enemies at once. If you don't 
know how to cast Blizzard yet check out the section on Co-Op Magic. After 
enough of the enemies are destroyed they will advance on you. Yayoi should be 
healing everyone the entire fight. Once the enemy numbers get down to 
critical, some more will appear but only to tell them to retreat. Finish all 
the stragglers and the mission will be complete. After Kenneth thanks the 
group for their participation in the mission you can respond by saying...

-     Don't mention it.
-     Your operation was impressive.
-     We just had good luck.

After saving the game leave the city from the east and go to Bibliostock. 
Before you enter Bibliostock stop by Bornia Village and visit Michelle. Give 
her the star-shaped sand. She will then ask if you knew about the Lighthouse. 
Slayn answers...

-     Yes.
-     I haven't seen it.
-     No.

She wishes to see a lighthouse even if it were only in a painting.

Before you enter Bibliostock cast Cycle Up on everyone and Attack Up for Slayn 
and Hugh. Victor and Yayoi will have a supporting role in the next battle. 
When you are set enter the town. Just like the Aggressival Fort, have Raimy 
scout out the enemy locations first. Viktor already has a plan; all you need 
to do is get rid of the enemies. After you are done scouting the area, move 
your characters one by one to different locations in town. I moved Hugh to the 
right behind the building near the pier, Yayoi and Viktor went to the left 
behind the building and Slayn got there attention by going up the middle.

When the battle begins Hugh and Slayn should both Dash while Yayoi casts Cure 
and Viktor attack magic. Hugh's goal is to take out the Lead Soldiers while 
Slayn gets the Armed Soldiers. Yayoi can heal Slayn if needed. Once Hugh has 
successfully beaten the Lead Soldiers, he should go after the Commander. A 
little bit of time into the battle the plan will be revealed to the enemy. The 
enemy will try to flee at this point so all you have to do is take care of 
them before they can do so. After the battle, go to the hotel to save and rest 
before going to the Imperial Library.

Enter the Imperial Library and look for the book that Viktor needs to read. 
Besides the one that he is looking for there are other books as well. On the 
2F which is actually the first one you see, the book that you need is not here 
but there is still some of importance like the Practical Excavation that 
you'll want Viktor to read later and Sketching for Dummies which allows Slayn 
to learn the basics of sketching. If you plan on getting that picture of the 
lighthouse, read the Port Delfina Tourist Information. On the 3F there are a 
number of technical books but when you try to advance an alarm goes off. Go up 
to the 4F and you will be in the Library Dungeon? Weird that there are 
monsters here but there are. Save when you reach the 7F.

Monsters                        
--------                       
Hellhound                       
Bone Golem                                               
Evil Mage
Gargoyle
Spectre

The final room has an ominous look to it but we will investigate anyways. 
Speak to Viktor and he will show the group how to get past the door. Once you 
are inside look for the book called "Secret Treasure Mysteries". It is on the 
top left area and it tells you the secret of the three Crystals that were 
stolen. Afterward Slayn will get to choose books to read. Read "Art and 
Science of Time Bombs" and Viktor will learn how; read the Fox-Tribe Language 
to learn the language of the Fox-Tribe; Read "Elixyrs for Everyone" so Viktor 
can learn to create the Special Elixyr; Read "Advanced Magic for Eggheads".  
After reading four books, the statues in the room will come to life.

This is a really easy battle. First, start off by killing the four Gargoyles 
in the room. After that have Slayn use Dash and stand on the door switch. 
Viktor is slow and should be moving outside while Yayoi casts cure for the 
inevitable damage that you will take. Since Hugh is the other Speed Demon, 
have him Dash and attack the Evil Mages. You will only be able to reach three 
of them because the fourth one is blocked by the Golems that will be coming up 
the stairs. Viktor can go to the second switch and after he has reached it 
Slayn will be free to move. The Golems are strong but because they are in a 
straight line it makes them easy prey for Thunder Magic. Cast the Co-Op spell 
Thunder and use it to decimate the Golems. A level 5 can take them out easily. 
After that, have Viktor use magic to finish off the last Evil Mage while Hugh 
waits for the remaining Golems to get closer. After the battle, leave the 
Library. After leaving you are met by Granford's Soldiers.

Sir Granford has a task for the group. He wants a letter delivered to 
President Burns. Seems easy enough since you're going that way anyways. You 
will receive the Letter to the President.  Once you leave the Mansion, you can 
check out the shops where it is now possible for you to buy things. Speak to 
the man at the Pier and Slayn will learn how to be an Artiste provided he read 
"Sketching for Dummies" in the Library. Now that that is done, return the 
letter or go to Lake Biene.

To get to Lake Biene, exit Schwartzhaas from the south, cross the bridge and 
then go south where you will see another bridge. Use Cycle UP and Shield 
before entering the battle. That leads to the Lake Biene Ruins. Of course 
James' Sect soldiers are waiting so you're just going to have to fight.

Have Hugh and Slayn cast Blizzard while Yayoi heals everyone. Two Blizzards 
will take out everyone except the Commander. Once they are defeated go inside 
of the Ruin that they were desperately trying to keep you out of. Of course 
you may want to rest in Schwartzhaas to recover your strength.

The dungeon for the Lake Biene Ruins is random and goes down to floor B3. Save 
your game in the Lake Alter Room and do the usual support magic thing.

If you used Attack Up and Cycle Up you should be able to get rid of these 
first soldiers easily. Have Yayoi and Viktor each target a Lead Soldier while 
Hugh and Slayn use Blizzard. Once Yayoi's enemy is defeated have her start 
casting Cycle Up. This is important because it will wear off on all of your 
members when Zion arrives. Once he arrives, cast Blizzard on his troops to 
weaken them and use Viktor to shoot at the Lead Soldier and the Priest 
Soldier. You should be able to beat these guys fairly easily so now all that's 
left is Zion. Yayoi should be casting Cure the whole time and Hans should use 
Bait and then run to the right near the barrels and defend. Zion will focus on 
him giving Slayn ample time to beat him down. Once Zion is defeated Raimy will 
ask if you saw a spirit leave when he lost. 

-     Yes.
-     I saw nothing.
-     I saw something else.

You will then acquire the Mysterious Water. Viktor wants to return to the lab 
but before you do that, exit the Biene ruins to the east and you will find the 
Central Gate. Go there and you will receive the Central Gate Parts. Now that 
you have the parts, return to Voltone. Before you do however, make a stop in 
Falkenfreuk and stay at the hotel. You will meet with informant Tony again who 
is trying to come up with a plan to draw out Randolf. After leaving the City, 
go to Taoberia where a woman will recognize Viktor. She remembers the spirit 
vase and will give Viktor some of the tools used to make it. Now that you have 
done all of these things return to Voltone City.

When you get back to Voltone, deliver the letter to the President. He will be 
a little irked that you didn't get it to him sooner but what are you gonna do? 
After that, go to the lab where Victor will begin to work on the Mysterious 
Water. After the others leave, move a little closer to Viktor and he will tell 
you that he needs your help. Talk to him and he will test the component, 
positive, negative, positive. Now go to the shelf in the northwest corner of 
the room and look at the reaction chart. Speak to Viktor after looking at it 
and choose Component C. Now he needs to know what Component C is. Examine the 
books on the northwest side of the room; speak to Viktor and chose "Ultimate 
Water". Now that you have done that examine the document about Secret Art of 
Spirits and talk to Viktor again. He will begin to work on the water. Now is a 
good time to give him the Central Gate Parts. He can't do anything yet because 
he needs the Master Key but don't worry about it because you will be getting 
the key shortly. Before resting up for the night, it's time to work on your 
relationships and request a new Off-Sheet Report.

Annette will answer the door and say "Yes?" respond with...
-     Uh, nevermind...
-     Did you learn anything from the diary?         (Choose)
-     I'm sorry, I knocked on the wrong room.

Once you choose the second choice, she will invite you into her room. Speak to 
her and she will read a passage to you. When asked if it reminds you of 
someone say yes. Choices will come up say...
-     Monika
-     Barbara
-     Michelle     (Choose)
-     Mary

She will tell you that the cure to Michelle's Illness is in her other 
notebook. Talk to Annette again and this time pick a new page to read. Annette 
will remember something. This is the time that you go into your items and use 
the Small Key Pendant. She will ask if it's possible that you're Gray. Answer 
with...
-     Right.       (Choose)
-     No.
-     Right...I think.

-     Monika, that was weird.
-     Tell me!
-     ...

+---------+
|  Yayoi  |
+---------+
Yayoi won't be as forward this time and will request that you ask her one

-     How did you track the traitor?
-     Tell me about your travels...
-     Have you met anyone interesting?

If you choose the second choice she will tell you something about the shrine 
and ask if it excites you. You can answer Yes or No. If you answer yes then it 
will really make her blush.

Choosing the last choice she will ask a follow up question about what you 
would rather do given a choice. Your answers are...

-     I'd prefer to fly over using magic!            (Choose)
-     Magic is far more important than flying!       (Choose)
-     Why settle for one? I want to do both, dammit!

==============================
  Remington Detective Agency
==============================
The Remington Detective Agency has new information on Port Delfina. You will 
investigate those but now it's time to get the Off-Sheet Reports. Examine them 
and then make a request. Anew one called Set up Randolf is available. This one 
appeared because you met with informant Tony in Falkenfreuk. Accept it for 500 
Elm and then continue on with your adventure and come back later. 

Rest in your bed and the next morning; go to the Burns' Mansion meeting room 
to discuss what to do next. The President will give you a response letter to 
Sir Granford that means that you will be returning to Bibliostock. Hugh and 
Yayoi have to go which means that you must choose a fourth. I decided to leave 
Viktor behind to create stuff in the lab. If you speak to President Burns he 
will tell you that one of the leaders in the Empire has the Master Gate Key. 
Before you leave check out what's new in the shops. The Ring Shop sells gems 
up to Level 6 and the Armor shop has some new items as well.

Go straight to Bibliostock and once you enter the city head toward the inn 
where you will see that strange man in gray that Hugh was arguing with 
earlier. Speak to him and ask him what he wants. He will ask you to stay at 
the inn so do that to get a new scene. You will hear a knock at the door and 
the man will come in. He tells you that it's your fault that Hugh gave up. You 
respond...

-     For his benefit!
-     He wanted to quit.
-     That's not my fault!
-     Uh, sorry?

After that he says that he missed his chance to prove that he is better than 
Hugh. You can respond...

-     That was a dumb idea!
-     Not a stalker, but a rival...

After that Hugh will enter the room and duel the other Messenger. After the 
duel the other messenger will teach Hugh the skill of Teleport. Due to the 
nature of this skill it will not appear until Hugh's Intelligence is high 
enough. Now that you have the Teleport Skill, it's time to visit Sir Granford. 
Speak to the butler and he will let you in. One of Granford's men will tell 
you about Underworld Gates and Granford says destroying the gates means...

-     ...will result in wandering dead.
-     ...will cause the dead to stream forth.
-     ...will keep the spirits from the underworld.  (Choose)
-     ...will do what?.

After discussing what to do and pointing you in the direction of Delfina, Sir 
Granford will give you the Master Gate Key. Speak to the Dark Messengers next 
to Granford and they will tell you about repairing the broken gates to the 
underworld. You will receive the Dark Crystal Shard from them. This is the 
beginning of the quest to repair these gates. Slayn will learn the Underworld 
Gate Ritual at this time. Leave the Mansion and Bibliostock to begin repairing 
as many gates as you can on your way back to Voltone to show Viktor the Master 
Gate Key.

       Underworld Gates
==============================
You've seen these before but just in case you haven't, they look like trees 
and rocks. To fix an Underworld Gate, just walk over it and press the X 
Button. Below is the list of Underworld Gates that we will fix right now.

Underworld Gate #1 (Rock) - Located directly west of Bornia
Underworld Gate #2 (Tree) - Located south of the Mt. Regen Tunnel

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
When you get back to Voltone, go to the lab and show Viktor the Master Gate 
Key. He will then prepare the Transfer Gate for use and he will also tell you 
that if you come across any gates that aren't working, he can fix them and 
connect them to the hub. As much as I like keeping Viktor in the lab, fixing 
those Gates will sure be helpful in the future. Change your party to include 
Monica and Viktor for now and head out to find the Transfer Gates. You will 
run into a few more Underworld Gates so we'll take care of those as well.

Since Monika is in your party right now, stop by Bornia Village and speak to 
the lone soldier walking around near the entrance. He will tell Monika what he 
knows about her father. Nothing much is found out but maybe you can request 
another Off-Sheet investigation. Once you are done there, go to Rolandia to 
fix the Underworld Gates and Transfer Gate. Once you fix the Gate in 
Tzaitstein use it to return to Voltone. Now you can get to Rolandia anytime 
without having to use the cave. Now that you have fixed most of the Gates, 
it's time to get on with the Mission. I would suggest taking Hugh, Annette, 
and Yayoi for this one.

To get to the next location you don't even need to leave Voltone City. Just 
enter the lab and use the Transfer Gate to get to Taoberia. The next part is 
optional but when you arrive in town you will notice a boy walking around 
frantically. Speak to him and he will tell you that something is wrong with 
his brother. Apparently his brother is poisoned and the bridge out of town is 
blocked off. Annette could do it if she had her mother's notes. Three choices 
will come up.

-     Hurry!
-     Someone should help.
-     You can do it!        (Choose)

Slayn will convince Annette to try and off the group goes back to Voltone to 
get Annette's mother's notebook. Go to Annette's mother's room in the mansion 
and examine the open book on the desk. She will create the "Secret Fever 
Tonic". Return to Taoberia, give the boy the Tonic and it will cure his 
brother. Annette will receive the Title "Aspiring Chemist". Now that you have 
saved the kid it's time to press on with the adventure. Fix the Underworld 
Gates as you go south towards Delfina.

==============================
       Underworld Gates
==============================
Underworld Gate #6 (Tree) - Located north of the Prisoner Tower
Underworld Gate #7 (Rock) - Just south of the bridge entering Delfina Area
Underworld Gate #8 (Tree) - Located west of Port Delfina

If you try to enter Delfinia you will find out that the soldiers that want to 
attack are in a holding pattern because the Aggressival Army is holding some 
of the citizens hostage somewhere. It's up to you to find them. To the north 
of the port city is the North Delfina Cave. Enter the cave and go down to the 
bottom level (B4) where you will find the hostages. After saving your game 
have Yayoi use Cycle Up, Attack Up, Shield and Resistance on everyone who will 
be doing hand to hand combat.

Monsters                                   Items                  
--------                                 ----------
Rover                                    Neural Scroll
Golem
Trawl
Petite Dragon
Werepanther
Evil Mage
Armor Crab

Once you are inside of the Cave with the hostages, have Raimy scout out the 
area for a good place to get the jump on the Aggressival Soldiers. Wait till 
the soldier pass toward the sleeping soldiers and the Lead soldier is walking 
toward the cells to go up around to the top.

==========
Use Dash with Slayn, Hugh, and Annette and then use Bait to draw the guards to 
you. Slayn and Hugh should go after the Soldiers and the Commander while 
Annette takes out the Lead Soldiers and the Soldiers on the eastern part of 
the map. Yayoi should cast magic to get rid of the Lead Soldiers that can't be 
reached because the can do the most damage. After a couple of soldiers are 
defeated the Commander will set a Time Bomb. You have until the timer reaches 
0 to complete the mission and get all hostages out. After two more enemies are 
defeated reinforcements will appear. Yayoi should be starting to cast her 
spell to get rid of the Lead Soldier in the back. After the Lead Soldier is 
defeated she needs to stick to healing while the other three clean up. While 
Annette and Hugh kill the Archers at the entrance to the room, Slayn should be 
going for the key. Once all of the enemies are defeated you still must get the 
key and rescue the hostages before time runs out so don't dawdle. After you 
leave the Time Bomb goes off. Exit the cave and return to the inn at Taoberia 
to get healed. If you had Viktor make something it will be ready as well.

Return to Port the city after the hostages are rescued and prepare for the

This next battle will require some of your characters to have the Dash 
Ability. Once you are ready enter the city and speak to the Noble Soldier to

|Strategy|
==========
At the start of the battle, have Slayn begin to cast Ice Barrage and have Hugh 
Dash forward a bit before casting his Windcutter Spell. Annette should also 
Dash because she is going to be your cleaner. The reason why you used these 
two spells together is to get the Blizzard spell that can defeat multiple 
enemies at once. Yayoi should move forward as well because later in the fight 
the Aggressival General will join in the fight. Even though the objective is 
to prevent the Lighthouse Guards from being defeated, they can hold out for a 
little bit until you get into position. You may need to use an item at least 
once to insure that none of them die. Once the General Appears have Hugh use 
Bait and then continue to finish off the Aggressival Troops near the 
lighthouse. Annette can go for the Priest Soldier and sometime before 
defeating both the General and the Commander, make sure that you kill the Lead 
Soldier on the roof otherwise he will just say "Screw This, I'm leaving." 
Leaving you with only a Mission Clear. After the battle Kenneth will arrive 
and thank you. Go to the Inn and save.


Your work in Port Delfinia is complete but before you enter the Lighthouse and 
travel to Dark Mountain there is much to be done like fixing the Transfer 
Gates in Delfinia and Falkenfreuk and building relationships with your 
characters in Voltone. Let's first start with the Port City. Speak to the Girl 
in the purple dress walking around the inn. She will tell you what she has 
seen since she has been in the Port City and you can respond with...

-     Maybe they're still terrified.
-     There must be a reason.
-     They didn't want to accept the refugees.   (Choose)

If you chose the last one she will say that she is impressed but also will 
know your name. Slayn can then respond...

-     How did you know my name?
-     Who are you?
-     You're the spy, aren't you?

Speak to the lady in yellow near the Transfer Gate and she will give you "3500 
Elm". A girl in purple next to another guy just below the inn will give you a 
"Dandy Book". Go south from there and an old man is waiting for you to thank 
you for saving his granddaughter. As a reward he will give you a "Mirage 
Gauntlet."  Stand at the corner where the guy and girl are and use the Art 
Kit. A musical note will appear over Slayn's head meaning you have found the 
best spot to paint. As long as you have become an Artiste you can paint a 
picture of the Lighthouse. Now that you have the picture, remember to give it 
to Michelle. Speak to the man near the reflecting pool and he will repay you 
by opening an item shop. Tell him about Voltone and off he goes. There are a 
number of new things for sale here and I highly recommend that you buy them 
before leaving the City. I would suggest buying the gems Metal Killer and 
Epiphany. Before leaving the town, show the Thief's Button to the innkeeper. 
He will respond and you say... (You can only do this if you fought the very 
first battle of the game.)

-     You're the one, aren't you?!
-     You stole the bag ten years ago!   (Choose)
-     Never Mind...

After you catch him, he tells you his story and reveals that the bag was sold 
to a doctor in Falkenfreuk. We are on our way back to Voltone anyways so we 
will stop there along the way.

On your way back to Voltone you can stop in Taoberia and use the Transfer Gate 
or you can walk stopping along the way to Falkenfreuk City. Since there are 
still a couple of Underworld Gates to be fixed in this area and we need to see 
the doctor, we will walk. Enter Falkenfreuk and knock on the doctor's door 
(Located to the right of the second Ring Shop) and after the doctor tells you 
that he is too busy you will get a choice to discuss the 10 year-old bag. Say 
yes and the doctor will show you the notebook. One thing that sticks out is a 
note about Immunity Medicine. It says that you need Ultimate Water and the 
roots from a Dark Tree. He will then tell you that once you have both 
Ingredients, return to him. Additionally Annette will find a small box in the 
bag as well. When asked if you know how to open it the Valuable items will 
come up. Select the Small Key Pendant and the box will open up. Inside is the 
Ring that Annette wanted as a child. Now that you are finished in the Capital 
City, continue east toward Schwartzhaas and eventually, Voltone.

==============================
       Underworld Gates
==============================
Underworld Gate # 9 (Tree) - Located north of Falkenfreuk in the forest
Underworld Gate #10 (Tree) - Located south of Falkenfreuk
Underworld Gate #11 (Tree) - Near the Central Gate
Underworld Gate #12 (Tree) - South of Schwartzhaas

|  35      ~ Rest Up in Voltone and Confronting Randolf (Optional)~          |
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
The first part of this section is to rest up a bit and use Viktor to open more 
Transfer Gates, but the second is to get an optional fight where Slayn takes 
on Randolf. The reason why I say that this is optional is because you must 
have visited Informant Tony two times throughout the course of the game and 
set up Randolf at the Detective Agency. When you arrive in town again speak to 
Remington and he will give you Information on Aggressival's movement. In the 
Shop Area is your new Item Shopkeeper. He sells everything that most shops 
have to offer but also has a "Holy Mother Tonic" for sale at 2000 Elm. 
Finally, go to the Lab and speak to Viktor to receive the "Ultimate Water" and 
whatever item you were working on. Make sure that you get him to start on 
another item and then dismiss everyone so that you can build some 
relationships. 

==============================
    Relationship Building
==============================

+---------+
| Annette |
+---------+
Annette seems kind of Irritated that you are visiting to kill time. Slayn 
tries to resolve the situation by saying...

-     But what if I have a good reason?
-     What would you consider a good reason?   (Choose)
-     Fine, I'm outta here beeyatch!

+---------+
|   Hugh  |
+---------+
Hugh will ask you about which person you think is you're favorite. Slayn can 
respond...

-     Annette
-     Monika
-     Yayoi         (Choose)
-     Michelle
-     Raimy
-     The guys      (This one was grayed out)
 
+---------+
|  Monika |
+---------+
She will talk about Bornia and the Featherians and Slayn can respond...

-     Your father's home?
-     Why did you move?
-     ...    (Choose)

+---------+
|  Yayoi  |
+---------+
Once again Yayoi will request that you ask her one question only. Depending on 
which one you asked last time it will be gone and a new question will take its 
place. Here is a list of all of the questions up to this point. 

-     Tell me about the Moon Spirit Messengers.
-     What was life like at the shrine?              
-     How did you track the traitor?
-     Tell me about your travels...
-     Have you met anyone interesting?
-     What's the most unusual incident? *NEW*

After you have finished speaking with your party members, go to the Remington 
Detective Agency and choose Dark Tree Root Research. This one's available for 
200 Elm and only if you did the events to find the Thief. Additionally you can 
also select Monika's Relocation for 400 Elm. After you are finished there it's 
time to take on the Optional Mission. If you didn't do any of the events early 
in the game then you can just skip to the next part now. First off, start by 
equipping Slayn with the gems Lv7 Epiphany, Lv7 Metal Killer and Lv6 Destroy 
Balance. Now rest in your bed. That night Informant Tony will knock on the 
door and tell you that the plan to draw out Randolf worked. Tony will collapse 
and in his last breath will tell you to take the Keepsake to his sister in 
Taoberia. Next you will automatically go to the location of the first battle. 
Just when the fight is about to begin, Slayn's personality takes over and 
Raimy says it's not good because...

-     I know.
-     I'll beat him instead!
-     What a bother!
-     Why don't you do it instead?!

This a one on one battle with Randolf. If you have Cycle Up then you are at an 
extreme advantage but even if you don't, the gems that I recommended will tear 
this guy up. He is most likely at a higher level but it shouldn't be by much. 
I was at Level 33. He went down in two hits when I fought him.

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

After the battle, you see the ghost of Annette's Mom and she thanks you for 
releasing her from the curse. The next morning, reorganize your group to 
include Viktor and Monika because there is one more thing that needs to be 
done. You need to get the Transfer Gates working in Falkenfreuk and Delfinia 
as well as get more information from Ted about Monika's Father. Since there 
are two things to do in Bornia we will go there first. If you don't feel like 
going to any of these places then at least get the Transfer Gates fixed. Once 
the gate is fixed in Delfinia continue to the lighthouse to reach the Dark 
Mountain Area.

==============================
       Bornia Village
==============================
Speak to Ted and he will remember something else about Monika's Father. He 
says something about Dark Power but that is not significant at this exact 
moment. After that visit Michelle and give her the picture that Slayn drew. 
That is the last item that she needs but keep visiting every so often. Now 
that you are finished here, take a visit to the Imperial Library in 
Bibliostock.

==============================
       Imperial Library
==============================
This is probably Viktor's favorite place in the world. Unfortunately for him 
he is needed in the lab. Take the time to read some of the books that he was 
interested in but didn't have the time to read. On the 2F is a book called 
Practical Excavation. Read this book and Viktor will learn the Excavation 
Skill.


==============================
       Taoberia (Optional)
==============================
Finally go to Taoberia to return the Keepsake Ring to Tony's Sister. His 
sister is the girl that is walking around near the entrance of town. She is 
sad that he is gone but as a reward she will give you the gem "Lv9 Rainbow's 
End". This gem gives the equipped ring every magic attribute at once.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
After fixing the Transfer Gate, head to the Lighthouse. Inside of the 
lighthouse is a Transfer Gate that leads to Dark Mountain and stairs leading 
to the top. Since the stairs are blocked at the moment use the Transfer Gate. 
This Transfer Gate leads to an area that the map doesn't cover so you'll just 
have to walk around to find the Dark Mountain by walking around. To get to the 
Dark Mountain you will need to travel north and then east around the 
mountains. There are three gates to the underworld that need to be fixed here 
so make sure that you have fixed them all before moving on with the game. This 
area has some tough monsters so make sure that you are at full HP and powered 
up when walking around.

==============================
       Underworld Gates
==============================
Underworld Gate #13 (Tree) - Right next to the Transfer Gate
Underworld Gate #14 (Tree) - To the east in a canyon
Underworld Gate #15 (Tree) - The northwest portion of this area

When you reach Dark Mountain, The spirit messengers will recognize you as the 
Dark Lord. After telling you about Zion they wish that they only knew of his 
plan. Slayn responds by saying...

-     He's trying to get 50,000 souls!
-     He's collecting souls to become uber-powerful.
-     Ummm...not too sure. Viktor, you got anything?
-     I couldn't tell ya.

I answered the third choice not becomes it seems like the correct one but 
because it won't appear unless Viktor is in the party. Before leaving, speak 
to the various Spirit Messengers around Dark Mountain. Near the save spot the 
Spirit Master guarding the path will tell you about the Trial Cave. The Cave 
has been damaged so you won't be able to access it right now. Having Monika in 
your group will allow you to find out about her father by speaking with the 
Chief Spirit Master. After we leave the cave we will visit Linasis on 
Featheria Isle. None of the shops are stocked so just rest by talking to the 
Spirit Master near the Cave entrance and then get the transporter fixed. 
Before resting up and building relationships use the Transfer Gate to go to 
Tzaitstein and then go to Featheria Isle. Magic Barrier Generator 4 is where 
Linasis stays. Since Monica is in your party you will get to tell him about 
what has happened to her father. After that return to Voltone and dismiss 
everyone to do some relationship building.

Back in Voltone it's time to get in touch with the others. Depending on what 
you have done up to this point you may or may not get these choices. 

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

Annette will notice that Monika has changed and that makes Annette very happy 
because she believes it is because of you.

+---------+

+---------+
Hugh will just talk about how they are going to take on Zion, nothing more. 
 
+---------+
|  Monika |
+---------+
If you followed this walkthrough and found out about her father at Dark 
Mountain, she will ask that you go to your room and talk. She speaks about not 
knowing who her father was. Slayn responds by saying...

-     I could have been your father.
-     I'm sorry you couldn't see him.   (Choose)
-     I'm glad you learned the truth.

Yayoi will answer the door again and again she will ask you to ask her one 
question. Below are the six choices and depending on what you have asked 
previously some of them will be gone.

-     Tell me about the Moon Spirit Messengers.
-     What was life like at the shrine?              
-     How did you track the traitor?
-     Tell me about your travels...
-     Have you met anyone interesting?
-     What's the most unusual incident? 


Once you are finished working on your relationships, it's time to get back to 
the mission at hand. For this next part I decided to leave Viktor and Monika 
behind. Viktor was a no-brainer because I need him building stuff and Monika 
just wasn't that useful for me because I have focused on magic. Of course if 
Monika is one of your better fighters then take her instead of Annette. The 
next strategy though will be with the four that I chose. Before you leave, 
take note that the Ring Shop sells gems up to level 7 and the armor shop has 
some new items as well.

Now that you have been to Dark Mountain, return to Bibliostock to speak with 
Sir Granford. His Butler will let you in and when you arrive he will 
congratulate you on a job well done. You can respond with...

-     Piece of cake.
-     Don't mention it.
-     We could have avoided the battle.
-     I wanted to fight!
-     Kudos to me. Next?
-     ...

He will then ask what else you learned about Zion and you will tell him your 
report. After that speak to everyone in the room and leave town. You will want 
to save your game outside of the Fort to the east and then cast Cycle Up, 
Attack Up, Shield and Resistance on your party members prior to entering. Once 
you enter and move forward a bit the Granford Sect Chief will praise you some 
more and the tell you that Lord Granford wants to minimize casualties. You 
say...

-     Yes, death should be kept to a minimum
-     It's inconvenient, but it must be done.
-     Yes. Their objective is to create casualties.

Speak to the Chief again and he will say, "bearing in mind our limitations, 
what should we do if the enemy attacks?

-     Go on the offensive with our support.
-     Take the defensive.
-     Retreat while causing damage.
-     Cry like babies and surrender.

After choosing what to do if the enemy attacks, the enemy will attack. This 
battle is one that can be completed only if you have a minimum amount of 
casualties.

==========
|Strategy|
==========
The goal of this battle is to kill at least 15 soldiers. When you begin there 
are already 14 to start so focus on killing the originals and one of the 
reinforcements. Use Dash with Annette, Hugh and Slayn and then have Slayn and 
Hugh go right up the middle toward the Archers destroying the soldiers along 
the way and Annette take out the three to the right. Yayoi is in charge of 
healing and using Cycle Up when the characters need it again. The reason why 
you want to get to the bridge so quickly is to prevent the Granford soldiers 
from charging mindlessly into the enemy horde. Since you didn't go left the 
Granford Soldiers will be occupied with the enemies to the left. Once the two 
Archers on the bridge are defeated, use Magic to kill the Lead Soldier on the 
wall and then begin casting the two spells that form Blizzard or Thunder and 
hold them until the enemy is clumped together trying to get by you. When you 
use Blizzard the first time, make sure that you don't finish all of the 
enemies off because more will come. Charge up your Blizzard Spell again and 
use it at the last second to kill all of the enemies. When it was all said and 
done, I had 31 casualties. If you were reading this and you don't know how to 
cast Blizzard, it's Co-Op magic. I think Co-Op magic is kind of broken here 
but oh well. After the battle try to advance and you will be stopped by 
General Kreuzweir. You will explain the situation to him but he is willing to 
check it out. Return to Voltone for some rest and character building. Speak to 
the Commander before leaving and he will give you Lv9 All Attrib Def.

Now that you have driven back the enemy for the moment, return to Bibliostock 
and then try to enter Sir Granford's Mansion. The Butler won't let you in but 
Raimy will just say all we can do is come back later and ask what they can do 
to stop Zion's plot. Slayn says...

-     I don't know.
-     Dark Spirit Masters are pondering this.  

After that, use the Transport Gate to return to the Federation. When you 
return the Doctor will have made a new discovery. Speak to him and you will 
learn more Cooperation Arts and you will now have the ability to learn Blast. 
Also don't forget to get the item Viktor was making and request that he create 
a new one. Now that you are back, it's time to build a relationship with your 
characters and get a new report from Remington.


==============================
    Relationship Building
==============================

+---------+
| Annette |
+---------+
Annette will tell you that she was taking a nap and that she dreams more and 
more about her mother. She says it's because of you and closes the door.

+---------+
|   Hugh  |
+---------+
Hugh wants to go out and stretch his legs. Slayn goes with him and together 
they talk above the entrance to the Arena. 
 
+---------+
|  Monika |
+---------+
Raimy will ask you what you are going to do about Monika's Phobia. Of course 
this scene only occurs if you read the Off-Sheet report about Monika's 
Relocation.  You can...

-     Help her.
-     Ignore it.

Once you have decided to help her, you have two more choices on how to 
proceed.

-     Take her to the lake.  -Scenario 1-
-     Use Yayoi's Ability.   -Scenario 2-

-Scenario 1-
------------
This is the better Scenario if you want to become friends because it allows 
Slayn to really bond with her. Of course you need to get her to the lake. 
Respond in the following ways...

-     Ask her to come along.       (Choose)
-     Ask her to go to the lake.
-     Remain silent and glare.

After you have convinced her to go with you the two arrive at the Lake. When 
you finally reach it, Slayn will say...

-     Don't worry, I'm with you.
-     Don't be frightened.
-     You have to conquer this fear.

If you got this far she will overcome her fear no matter which choice you 
select. After thanking you for what you've done, the date with her is over.


-Scenario 2-
------------
If you chose to use Yayoi's ability you must visit Yayoi later and she will 
solve the problem. If you read the new report at Remington's then you will 
have to wait until the next time you rest. Monika will ask you if it bothers 
you that you do not have wings. Slayn responds...

-     ...
-     I've never thought about it.
-     How do you feel having wings?


+---------+
|  Yayoi  |
+---------+
You should be running out of questions to ask her so just ask whichever one 
you want out of the remaining questions.

-     Tell me about the Moon Spirit Messengers.
-     What was life like at the shrine?              
-     How did you track the traitor?
-     Tell me about your travels...
-     Have you met anyone interesting?
-     What's the most unusual incident?

The other possible outcomes of visiting Yayoi is that she will talk about the 
medication Orpheus is receiving (provided that you read the report) or she 
will erase Monika's Phobia, if you chose Scenario 2 for Monika prior.

After getting everything situated in Voltone, it's time to continue the quest. 
Gather your party (I chose the same four as last time) and use the Transfer 
Gate to go to Dark Mountain. At Dark Mountain speak to the Chief Spirit Master 
and he will tell you that there is a special condition for Zion to use the 
Secret Art. Slayn says...

-     Well Done!
-     You found a clue!
-     Tell me...right now!
-     Are you saying you're better than me?

Raimy will then ask about the condition and ask what does that mean. Slayn 
says...

-     I don't know.
-     I understand!   (Choose)
-     It is for me alone to know.

If you select I understand!, Raimy will tell her to teach her. You can say...

-     Cave
-     Midnight Sun
-     Solar Eclipse
-     Total Solar Eclipse  (Correct)



Since Annette is in the party here, talk to the Chief Spirit Master and he 
will speak to you. Annette will ask what will become of Gray's Soul and Slayn 
responds with...

-     Gray will be saved.
-     Gray will be obliterated.
-     I really don't know.

==============================
           Bibliostock
==============================
This is all that can be done here now so just return to Bibliostock and speak 
to Sir Granford. Speak to the butler to gain entry and when you arrive you 
will find out that Vincent is working with you. After telling his story, 
Granford will ask Slayn if he has any ideas to go with the General's story.

-     It's her secret ability.
-     She was using a magic item!   (Choose)
-     I have no idea.

If you chose a magic item he will ask what kind of item has that power. You 
can say...

-     A Dark Crystal
-     A space-Time Crystal   (Choose)
-     A Water Crystal


After the meeting a soldier will enter and say that Bornia is being attacked. 
Vincent believes that you should stand by and watch. You decide to...

-     Agree with the General.   
-     Disagree and send troops.

After you have chosen, head to Bornia and get ready for another Battle. Hugh's 
Teleport ability will come in handy because of the distance that you have to 
cover. Before entering Bornia Village, use Support Magic to boost your 
characters. Before you begin you can surprise the enemy. Use Raimy to spy 
before making a move.

I had no intention of escaping the battle by going to the top of the map. Have 
Hugh Teleport to the sleeping Soldier and have Annette and Slayn, Go after the 
Heavy Soldier. With Hugh guarding the northern part of town, they will never 
be able to get by. Annette and Slayn can kill the others as they see fir while 
Yayoi uses Magic to weaken or kill them. After the battle, go north to where 
the remaining soldiers are and prepare for another battle.

Once again Hugh's Teleport comes in Handy. Have him use it to teleport to the 
Soldier and then the Commander. Annette can take out the two heavy Soldiers by 
herself while Yayoi and Slayn begin to cast Attack spells. Once Annette has 
defeated the two Heavy Soldiers she should Dash to catch the Priest Soldier. 
Hugh should be casting Teleport after the Commander is finished and use it 
only if Annette can't reach the Priest Soldier in time. After the Enemies are 
defeated, Clive will join the battle. Attack with your strongest magic and 
have Hugh Teleport Slayn and Yayoi out of there. Annette should use the Bait 
Technique to draw Clive away from the others and Hugh should cast Teleport 
when Clive gets closes to her. I feel cheap for doing this but you will get a 
Mission Complete. After the completion of the Mission you need to go back to 
Voltone and speak to Viktor about a way to counter the Space-Time Crystal.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Before you leave Bornia speak to some people and they will tell you what 
happened to Ted. If you didn't find out about Monika's Father by now, it's too 
late. Return to Voltone and speak to Viktor in his lab. He finds it intriguing 
that the Space-Time Crystal has another use. To counter that he will need to 
create a Space-Time Resistor, unfortunately he needs the crystal of similar 
name. You have already gotten one before in the Tzaitstein Mine. Prior to the 
last mission I had Viktor create an Excavator. Get the Excavator and change 
your party to include someone with Blast, Monika and Viktor. 

=================================
Fix Michelle's Device (Optional)
=================================
This next part is optional but if you don't do it Michelle will die. Transfer 
to Bornia and visit Michelle. It turns out that the device was damaged in the 
battle. You must find Linasis to get the part that can fix the machine. If 
Monika isn't in your party as suggested then you won't be able to get the 
device. Monika repairs it temporarily and suggests Linasis has the part. You 
respond...

-     Linasis?
-     Did he make that?
-     I don't wish to see him.

After that, Slayn will speak to Michelle alone. Raimy will say something and 
you can respond after by saying...

-     Don't be sad.
-     Don't be so indifferent.
-     Don't you want to live?

She will say that she desperately wants to live and Slayn can respond with...

-     Michelle...
-     I won't let you die!
-     Hope lives until you let it die.


Now you must go to Featheria Isle to speak to Linasis. He is in Magic Barrier 
Generator 4. Of course since you need to transfer to Tzaitstein, go to the 
mine first to get the Time Crystal Ore. After retrieving the Ore now go to 
Featheria Isle where Linasis is staying. Linasis will enter the Barrier and 
give you the "Aseptic Device Parts". Now that you have the parts, it's time to 
go back and fix the Aseptic Device in Bornia. After the device is fixed, head 
south toward a small hole in the mountain covered by rocks. If you don't have 
the Excavator forget it.


=================================
          Fox-Tribe Forest
=================================
Travel south and slightly west of Bornia and you will find a small hole 
blocked with rocks. Use the Excavator here to clear the rocks and then go 
through the hole to reach the western area beyond the mountains. To the south 
is the Fox-Tribe Forest. Enter and speak to the Fox -Tribe members. If you 
didn't read the Fox-Tribe Dictionary in Bibliostock then you are out of luck 
right now. Inside of the Forest on of the Fox's will tell you how to find Gold 
Slimes. The Gold Slimes are in this area and they are very rare.

==============================
       Underworld Gates
==============================
Underworld Gate #16 (Tree) - West of the Fox-Tribe Forest


Now that you are done exploring, change your party to someone with Blast, 
Hugh, and Annette. Make sure that you save as well because the next battle 
will start shortly. Return to the lab and speak to Viktor. Now that he has the 
parts, he will create the Space-Time Resistor. Before you enter the Transfer 
Gate to go to Bibliostock, do your pre-battle preparations.

Have Hugh Teleport Annette to the left soldiers and himself to help out 
Vincent. Yayoi and Slayn should be casting Earthquake together. If you cast 
the Quake spell of at least level 5, you should be able to take out most of 
the enemies. After a certain number are defeated, four new enemies come in 
from the entrance but they are no bother. Just make sure to get rid of the 
Lead Soldiers so they can't cast Quake. After the battle has concluded, return 
to Sir Granford.

Sir Granford will ask how to proceed and Hugh suggests that Slayn decides. You 
can say...

-     Persuade Zion.
-     Find a way to stop the plot.
-     Stop the soul collection.
-     Defeat Zion in a battle.
-     Cooperate with Zion

After making a decision, your next stop is Dark Mountain. Before we go to Dark 
Mountain stop by Voltone to rest up and build relationships. Yayoi and Hugh 
have to go on the next mission. Speak to Sir Granford before you leave and he 
will give you a pass to see the top floors of the library. It won't appear in 
your inventory but the guards in the Library will know that you are 
authorized.

|   Hugh  |
+---------+
Hugh talks about taking on Zion and Slayn Responds...

-     Is that why you did the ritual?
-     The world is counting on us.
-     We'll have to play it by ear. 
 
+---------+
|  Monika |
+---------+
Monika will ask you if it bothers you that you do not have wings. Slayn 
responds...

-     ...
-     I've never thought about it.
-     How do you feel having wings?

Depending on your choices earlier this may not come up as an option.

+---------+
|  Yayoi  |
+---------+
You should be running out of questions to ask her so just ask whichever one 
you want out of the remaining questions.

-     Tell me about the Moon Spirit Messengers.
-     What was life like at the shrine?              
-     How did you track the traitor?
-     Tell me about your travels...
-     Have you met anyone interesting?
-     What's the most unusual incident?

After you have finished boding with the other members in your group, gather 
your Party and head to the Dark Mountain.

When you arrive at the Dark Mountain Shrine the first thing that you should do 
is check the shops now that they are open. The gem shop is especially useful 
because a couple of the gems in here will save you in the next battle. Make 
sure to buy Epiphany and Vampire Gems here because they cancel each other out. 
The Teriaka gem here is also going to be useful because the enemies here like 
to cause status ailments. Speak to the Chief Spirit Master and get ready to 
take on the trial.

Make sure that you create a safe save here because once you enter you won't be 
able to leave until the trial is complete. Only Hugh and Yayoi are allowed to 
go in with you so make sure that you are prepared by equipping all three with 
the Teriaka gem and have Hugh and Slayn equipped with the Lv7 Epiphany and 
Vampire gems to get the power increase and to cancel out the damage penalty. 
After accepting to go Annette will say Good Luck and Slayn responds...

-     Leave this to me!
-     I'm beginning to have doubts.
-     Whatever will be, will be.
-     ...

After he will give you the "Dark Scroll". When you get inside Hugh will ask if 
you can see the Dark Power. Slayn responds...

-     Of course.
-     I think so.
-     Not really.

The layout of this cave is the same every time so just make your way through 
it and find the four ghosts. The ghosts will tell you about Spirit Messengers 
and when you have found them all, talk to the Messenger guarding the path to 
the final trial. You have to take a test but it's easy as long as you read 
what the ghosts said. If you get a question wrong then you will need to find 
that ghost so that you can review. The Chief Spirit Master has four questions 
that you must answer.

What is the purpose of a Dark Spirit Master?
-     Control Spirits   (Correct)
-     Collect Spirits
-     Hunt Spirits

What is your mission as a Dark Spirit Messenger?
-     Protect the darkness at night.
-     Protect cycle of life.   (Correct)
-     Collect souls

What happens to a soul in the underworld?
-     It becomes a Fairy!
-     It is assigned a new body at once.
-     It rests until a new body is assigned.   (Correct)

What eventually happens to a Fairy?
-     It becomes Human.
-     It becomes Spirits.   (Correct)
-     It fades away.


After you pass the test its time to continue on. From the next room go to the 
left to get the Double Rings gem and then back to the right to save your game 
before the final trial. In the next room use the support magic before speaking 
to the Spirit Master. Don't worry about HP and MP because he will heal you to 
full.

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

|Strategy|
==========
Hugh's ability to use Teleport is sealed in this battle so don't even think 
about it. Start by Having Slayn use Dash and then go to the right just up the 
stairs to block the Arch Fiend. Hugh should go toward the chest that the Arch 
Fiend guards. Inside of the chest is the Dark Tree Root and if you don't get 
it now you won't be able to cure Michelle. The main problem would've been the 
Litch because he can casts death. Of course your Lv7 Teriaka prevents that. 
With the Epiphany/Vampire Combo you should be able to take down most of the 
enemies in one hit. Once the Arch Fiend is destroyed just take your time 
getting rid of the rest. To keep your attacks fluid, keep casting Cycle Up 
until Slayn is in position to block the Arch Fiend. After the battle advance 
to the Dark Crystal and use the Dark Scroll. Slayn will learn the Art of 
Control.

When you get back, Annette tells you that Viktor has created some sort of 
device and is going to deliver it. Return to the Lab and Viktor will give you 
the "Soul Gauge". Now it's time to meet with party members in their room. The 
next section is optional but you will want to check it out for the choices 
available in meeting with your party members.

This section is optional because in order for this to happen certain 
conditions must have been met. You must have fought in the first battle 
against the Assassin, found the Thief in Delfinia by showing him the button, 
Met the Doctor in Falkenfreuk, obtained the Ultimate Water and the Root of the 
Dark Tree. You also must've fixed Michelle's machine after Battle 24. If you 
didn't do all of this then this section won't help you except for the 
character choices.

-     No.
-     I don't think so.

|  Yayoi  |

You should have only questions to ask her so just ask whichever one you want 
out of the remaining questions.

-     Tell me about the Moon Spirit Messengers.

After you have visited with the Party Members it's time to gather your Party 
and go to Falkenfreuk. Before you leave, take a look at the shop. It has been 
upgraded again.

Go to Falkenfreuk and give the two Ingredients to the Doctor. After a few 
moments you will receive the Immunity Medicine. Now return to Bornia and give 
the medicine to Michelle. When you enter Michelle's house this time, her Maid 
introduces you. That's odd because usually we just go up to the window and 
talk. After you give her the medicine, Slayn says...

-     Let's go outside.
-     You should rest until you're sure.
-     ...

Gather your party and head to Bibliostock to speak to Sir Granford. After he 
says that the Spirit Vase will be filled say...

-     Defeat Zion before that happens.
-     Destroy Vase before it's filled.
-     Let the Ceremony proceed until the eclipse.
-     It's too late now...

After that, head to the city of Lindenberg to meet up with Vincent. You can 
get there by passing through the fort to the east. Once you arrive in the 
Lindberg area look for the gates to the underworld. Once you have found them, 
return to Bibliostock or Bornia to heal and then go into Lindenberg. The Trial 
Cave is optional and will be covered after this next battle. If you have Yayoi 
in your party and visit Michelle, Yayoi will request to speak with Michelle 
alone. You will find out the connection between Orpheus and Barbara 
indirectly. Before entering Lindenberg, make yourself battle-ready.

Underworld Gate #17 (Rock) - North of Lindenberg
Underworld Gate #18 (Rock) - Across the Bridge to the north and then east.

This is an easy battle, start by having Yayoi make herself invisible and then 
have Hugh teleport everyone to the soldiers near Orpheus. Yayoi should 
concentrate strictly on healing while the others destroy the James Sect 
Soldiers. Once Orpheus falls, Michelle will enter the town and tell Orpheus 
that she has been cured. Of course you need to do this before the battle 
otherwise this won't happen. Reinforcements for this battle will arrive from 
the bottom, top-left and top-right in that order so have you troops situated 
accordingly. Remember Hugh can teleport so make good use of this skill. The 
reinforcements will appear once more from the bottom and that will be it. Now 
that the battle is over, go to the in and save because that was a long battle. 
The next thing to do is explore the city and more importantly find out about 
the Master Garb.

Start by checking out the shops here. Many of them have some of the strongest 
Armor. The item shop is normal but you are close to the end of the game and 
you should expect good equipment. After we are finished in Lindenberg we will 
do some optional stuff.

Return to Voltone and we will meet with the other party members privately. On 
your way back passing through the fort, you will see Michelle walking around. 
Speak to her and she will tell you how worried she is. Slayn says...

-     Prepare for the worst.        (Choose and she stays)
-     I make no guarantees.         (Choose and she leaves)
-     I will save them at any cost.

If you chose the last choice, she will tell you not to endanger your life. 
Slayn says...

-     I'm glad, and I also... 
-     I'm glad, but I...       (Choose and she leaves)

If you choose the first choice she will be very happy and say that she doesn't 
know how to show her appreciation. Slayn can say...

-     I just need your support.
-     I don't expect anything.
-     Just being yourself is enough.

Return to Voltone and spend some time with your characters.

will have focus on getting a couple of powerful Armors and some optional 
stuff.

Now it's time to go out collecting and preparing for the final battles. Start 
by going to Bibliostock and investigate the Top Floor of the Library. Up there 
is a book about creating the Master Garb. Read it and then go to Lindenberg. 
In Lindenberg go all the way up and to the right; just before leaving town, go 
down but make sure that you don't exit and speak to the scientist. He will 
teach Viktor how to create the Master Garb. Also in Lindenberg, fix the 
Transfer Gate. When Viktor fixes it he will find the "Mind Induction Metal". 
Return to the lab and replace Viktor with someone else. I chose Annette. You 
will also want to have Viktor make the Master Garb. 

==============================
         Purity Dress
==============================
This is an item that will provide the greatest protection for Monika. Since 
you have fixed all of the Underworld Gates return to the Dark Mountain Shrine. 
Speak to the Spirit Master near the temple and he will give you the Light 
Cloth. Now go to East Schwartzhaas and speak to the lady from Bornia two times 
to receive the item.

==============================
         Final Gauntlet
==============================
To get this one you must deal as much damage as you can with one attack in the 
Damage Competition in the Arena. I had two Lv7 Epiphany gems and a Lv7 Metal 
Killer gem. I ended up doing 727, which was more than enough to get on the top 
of the list. I also received a Counterattack Scroll and a Body Tune Scroll.

==============================
         Trial Cave
==============================
Go back to Lindenberg and then exit and go north across the bridge. If you 
completed all of the gates to the underworld then you know where this cave is 
already.

Monsters                                   Items                  
--------                                 ----------
Demi Fiend                               Lv9 Armor Breaker
Summer Eel                               Lv9 Sealing Rings
Misery Golem                             Chi Scroll
Litch
Salamander
Giant
Arch Fiend

The cave has may tough monsters and it goes down to floor B7. When you reach 
B7 you will find a bunch of treasure chests and a girl who is the Dungeon 
Mistress. You impress her because you have made it all the way to the bottom 
of the Trial Cave. As a reward she will let you try the toughest dungeon in 
her tribe, which is the one in Voltone. Accept her offer and she will wait for 
you in Old Voltone. If you return to Viktor he will have finished creating the 
Master Garb.


==============================
         Voltone Well
==============================

Monsters                                   Items                  
--------                                 ----------
Demi-Titan                               Mind Tune Scroll
Summer Eel                               Louve Armor
Misery Golem                             Lv9 Transport Wings
Litch
Arch Fiend

Speak to the Dungeon Mistress and she will allow you to access the well in 
Voltone. This is a tough dungeon that goes down to floor B9. I used Silent 
Step all the way down and my fighters had 2 Art of Evasions equipped. Another 
tip to getting by is to always have Shield cast. If you run into the Demi-
Titans they can do some mean Damage. When you reach the bottom, grab the three 
items including Annette's strongest Armor and then warp out of there. It's 
harder than it looks but you will get some good experience.

Travel around Rolandia and you will randomly run into Titans. There are a 
total of 7 and you must defeat them all in order to get. The strategy I use is 
to have Slayn use the old Bait and Run. The Titans are weak against Fire and 
Earth so have Yayoi use that. The reason I use Yayoi is because she has high 
MP and I gave her the Mage's Aria gem that makes her a Machine when it comes 
to spell casting.

The first three Titans must be fought one on one. However, once you defeat 
Vier Drep, His two brothers Funf Egger and Sechs Ulk will appear from the 
bottom of the screen, Prior to defeating Vier Drep, telport Yayoi to the top 
of the battlefield and have Annette and Slayn also run to the top. Hugh should 
make himself invisible when the two arrive and Slayn should use Bait and start 
hurling Earth Magic at them. If you haven't tried using Capicitor Magic you 
should start because it works great. Just place them in the way of the Titans 
like mines and watch them die when they step on them. Combine that with the 
fact that Hugh is invisible and you have an unbeatable combo.

The final Titan is the strongest monster that you have fought yet. Use the 
same strategy in the one on one battles by baiting the Titan and having him 
chase Slayn. Yayoi can kill him with Capacitor Magic while Hugh teleports him 
around the battlefield to avoid being hit. After Seiben Dube is defeated 
return to Bornia and speak to the man that talks about Titans. He will ask for 
your Autograph and then give you the Fenrill Garb. 


===================================
Importing Growlanser II Characters
===================================
You already have the Mind Induction Metal and now you must get the Power 
Stone. The Power Stone can be earned as a prize in the Arena's Free Battle ~ 4 
on 4 Master A Rank. In addition to having these two items you must have also 
read the book in the Bibliostock Imperial Library.  After you use one of the 
items for Viktor, he will begin on the project and a message will come up 
telling you to Insert a Memory Card with Growlanser II data into the most 
recently accessed Memory Card Slot. It will be searched for the latest-date 
and the characters that were successfully finished (except Sereb). It can only 
be done one time so it's best that you complete Growlanser II with all of the 
characters before doing this. (As of this Walkthrough I didn't do that because 
I wanted to start this one. If you want to get Max, you need to find him at 
the end of part II. Check my FAQ for info on that. I will be updating the 
Growlanser II FAQ to final status and then this one again after. Now that you 
have the Growlanser II characters, try going out and using them.

*****************
     Arieta
*****************
Go to the Fox-Tail Forest with her in the party and she will recognize the 
Phantom Beasts. Speak to one of the Beasts and you will receive the Rainbow 
Feather Robe.


*****************
     Ernest
*****************
If you have Ernest in your party and speak to the Dungeon Mistress, She likes 
him and as a gift she gives him the Imperial Gauntlet. This is Ernest's 
strongest piece of Armor.


*****************
     Riviera
*****************
Go to Port Delfinia and speak to the woman in the inn. Riviera will sense 
something from the woman and the woman will give her the Valkyrie Leotard.

This is an easy fight. As of now you must know that while writing this 
Walkthrough my final team is Slayn, Hugh, Yayoi and Annette. Have the three 
fighters use Dash and then go after the Magicians first. Co-Op Magic is a pain 
to deal with and you might as well deal with the cause first. Yayoi's job is 
to heal and as an extra precaution, make her invisible to avoid the Troop 
Chief and the Soldiers. Once the battle has concluded enter the cave.

This battle is another waste of time because it's obvious that you are just 
playing into Zion's hands. If you are having trouble with this battle try 
changing up your rings to something more defensive or upgrade your armor. Once 
they are defeated it's time to go to James Castle.

If you haven't figure out how to use Co-Op magic by now then this will be a 
very tough battle. Begin the battle by having your strongest magic users cast 
Quake. One Quake for me killed everyone except Clive and Barbara. If you 
looked at the soldiers opening the doors as you came in, remember that you 
need to do the same. After the first sets of enemies are destroyed three 
Litches will attack you. Destroy them and then proceed to open the doors. 
After the two levers are pulled at the top, new game over conditions appear; 
Party Destroyed and 50,000 souls collected in Vase. Once you reach Barbara, 
don't kill her quickly because by sparing her, Orpheus will come in to 
convince her to change sides. That is of course if you cured Michelle. Now in 
addition to the two game over conditions already, you must not let Barbara 
die. Have Yayoi heal her right away. When you defeat Clive, you will receive 
the Bronze Key and the Lv3 Invisibility Gem. In the room to the left get the 
Royal Gauntlet. Speak to Barbara and then speak to Orpheus. 

Slayn can respond to Orpheus with...

-     We did it all for Michelle.
-     Don't give up yet.
-     I won't let any of you die here!

Now that you have spoken to Barbara and Orpheus, use the Bronze Key on the 
door to the right and speak to James Wellington. He will ask who you are. 
Say...

-     We have come to defeat Zion!
-     Your executioners!
-     What right do you have to know?
-     Well, my name is Slayn.

After you are finished, activate the Transfer Gate and return to the 
Federation. If you look at what's for sale at the Federation you will notice 
that gems are sold up to Lv8 and the Armor shop has some powerful equipment.

When you return to the Castle push the statue on the left to reveal a crawl 
space. Use it and you will end up in the room where Zion is going to perform 
the ceremony. Zion will say something and you respond...

-     Maybe this isn't a good idea...
-     The only fool here is you!
-     Time for your last rites!

After checking the Counter it turns out that two souls are needed. You then 
say...

-     We're just in time!
-     That was close...
-     He can't finish the ritual.

He will finish off two Priests and say everything s ready. Respond by 
saying...

-     Not if we have anything to do with it!
-     You underestimate our determination.
-     Wait...uh, does that mean it'll be dark in here?

==========
|Strategy|
==========
Annette, Slayn, and Hugh should dash and then go after all of the enemies in 
the room by splitting up. Two can go up the steps behind where you start and 
one forward. Yayoi should cast support Magic on everyone to start. Because I 
had the Holy Amulet I got three spells for the price of 1. Even if you need to 
get near Zion, don't forget that Hugh has Teleport. This should be no problem. 
The rest of the battle Yayoi should heal. I mad Yayoi invisible at the start 
so that the reinforcements can't see her. Once it is Zion, it should be a mere 
formality to beat him. Have everyone who is attacking him use Psychic and have 
Yayoi heal.

When Slayn comes face to face with Zion, he will mention something and Slayn 
will say...

-     You won't get the chance agin.
-     I've come to return the favor.
-     It's your turn to be the victim.
-     Shut up and die.
-     Weirdo.

After Zion goes down, Slayn must use the spirits to call the Control Power. He 
gets a choice.

-     Dark Spirit, hear my voice!
-     Dark Spirit, bar Zion from your power!

After realizing he lost Zion says "This is impossible". Slayn says...

-     I told you.
-     I win.  
-     We win.
-     Farewell.   
-     ...
-     You should be dead by now.

You will receive the Soul Vase and the Memory Ruby upon victory. After a brief 
scene, the game isn't over yet. This is where you can get the characters 
endings. Speak to one of the characters and they will accompany you to Dark 
Mountain. Once you step into the Transfer Gate, you get to see the endings of 
the characters not picked. Afterward visit the Chief Spirit Master to find out 
what happens to Slayn. After that record your Clear Game Data.

           ~THE END~

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
The Ohtori Farm is located just to the east and slightly north of Bibliostock. 
You need to pass through the mountain to get there. In the Ohtori Farm a 
farmer is trying to herd all of the animals into a corral. You're job is to do 
that as fast as you can. This seems annoying at first but with a little 
practice you can do it. The secret is to run straight at the animal to make 
them change direction. Once they are moving in a direction they will continue 
to walk that way. Make it easier on yourself by getting them close to the 
Corral before speaking to the Farmer.

******************************************************************************
                              Exhibition Match 
******************************************************************************
The object of the Exhibition Match is to get as many kills as possible. This 
is easily accomplished by letting the other teams beat each other senseless 
and you get the finishing blow. My strategy was to keep Annette in the back 
and use Bait. Since she has the most HP, she won't go down easily. After that 
I have Hugh teleport Slayn to Zion's area and pick off the Soldier Corpse and 
Vincent. Your goal is to wipe out two of the other teams completely first so 
that you only have 1 to deal with. For completing the battle you will get to 
choose the number of prizes equal to the enemies that you killed.
