 As for fleeing battle, hold "B" when a character's action bar is filled and
 keep it held until battle ends. Attacking isn't possible during this phase
 (obviously) although countering and pre-entered commands work. Only one ally
 need be active for the party to flee, but having everyone incapacitated (for
 berserk and paralysis especially) prevents escape, so always have someone who
 isn't affected by such things! You won't regret it.

STORY                   [STRY]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 "The legends of Bel Lenora recall a mighty sage, a man with ashen eyes, a
 crafter of armaments of wondrous power. Zodiat, the first and greatest king
 of Bel Lenora, led his people to a land free from spirits of evil... Yet,
 hundreds of years later, evil has reemerged in Bel Lenora... The traitorous
 general, Vai the Magic-less, and his army of Curse-Bringers, have drained the
 people's spirits, leaving death and destruction in their wake...

 The great Duke Averay ultimately defeated and banished the evil Vai, but now
 another magic-less man walks among the citizens of Bel Lenora. And though he
 is the adopted son of the Duke, for many Bel Lenorans, his mere presence
 conjures memories of war, devastation and Vai the Cursed..."

ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 One can a character's stats on the 'Status' or 'Equipment' screens, and since
 the game's a little nebulous on this aspect, here's the lowdown. You'll note
 that red icons relate to physical things and blue to magical things.

STATUS ABNORNMALITIES   [STTS]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The game displays the general RPG fare on this end, with a few lesser-used
 ones thrown in for good measure. Ending battle will cure all status effects
 that are not equipment-based, including death (revive with 1 HP). Kairu will
 get random status abnormalities for the first stretch of the game due to a
 story-related ailment, so no, that is not a glitch!

TIPS N' TRICKS          [TPST]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 What, ho! It's time for a bunch of tips piled into a big...uh, pile. All are
 written by yours truly, although for any reader who has some good ones, send
 'em my way and they may just turn up here!

 • HEALTHY ITEM SUPPLY: You'd be surprised at how many times in the game the
   plot moves forward, only to leave the party without means to buy medicinal
   items! Of course, replenishing this supply can really eat into the cash
   reserves, so think about selling obsolete equipment or grinding near free
   healing points for a bit. [Don't accidentally sell equipment automatically
   removed from absent party members too]

 • ITEMS MUST BE EQUIPPED to use them, and periodically, absentee allies have
   their goods removed (this applies to equipment as well, mind you). When
   able, always take a look-see to make sure everything's in good shape, or
   you may end up fighting a boss with someone with just a weapon equipped!

 • BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SELL! Battles usually aren't the best way to get cash;
   that honor belongs to hawking obsolete equipment. Of course, the pricier
   equipment may seem like better sell fodder...however, some sidequests will
   depend on having certain items, so don't sell blindly! An example is the
   Hurricane Glove, which is part of an elemental set someone in Drakus Tat
   will want. If y'sell it to someone else, it ruins the entire sidequest and
   the window of opportunity for an even better item is out of the question!

 • SAVE WISELY! There are three slots for files so why not use them all? Since
   the game can be glitchy, sometimes game-breakingly so, at least this option
   leaves one with maybe a workaround. But beware: if you play a file and then
   load another, the save cursor will be left on the initial one -- it's very
   easy to accidentally overwrite! [There's no "do you want to overwrite?"
   prompt, for reference.]                          _________________________

 As the game starts, the main character (Kairu) will end up sparring with a
 snot-nosed cadet in his swordsmanship class. Now, spamming the attack button
 is the easy way to win, but in round 2, when magic is allowed, Kairu will
 have to lose. That's the way of the world! Afterwards, Duke Averay wants to
 see Kairu in his office, but there's still plenty of exploring to do here,
 most of it being fruitless but there are some generic items laying around the
 place. Like many SNES-like RPGs, one has to search barrels, crates, and the
 occasional chest to scrounge up free loot.

 The foyer leads to 2F, which is where the Duke's office is located (as well
 as Kairu's room where resting is possible). After speaking with Averay, he
 bids his son to visit the Spirit Temple, in the hopes that Kairu may finally
 learn magic abilities. The duke also namedrops picking up items in the town
 of Bel Lenora, southeast on the world map. This part is optional but we'll
 do it anyway.

 Before leaving, there's two things to do:

 1) Read some of the library shelves to get a few free stat boosts (+2 MAG,
    +2 INT, +5 SP total).

 2) Visit the B1 knights' quarters and find the person standing in the store
    room, bemoaning the babysitting job she's doing. The kids have escaped!
    Find them in the armory and report back to the sourpuss, then re-enter
    the screen to get the chests she blocked.

WORLD MAP
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Enemies: Frock, Frost, Winter Wolf, Snowball, Silent Iris

 This "continent" is rather small, and only consists of a few places:

 • Axenburg, the southwest town
 • Axenburg Forest, near said town
 • Bel Lenora, the SE capital city
 • Spirit Temple, in the mountain pass north of Bel Lenora
 • Cursed Caves, in the mountain pass SW of Averay Mansion
 • The Curse Bringers Tower, NE of Averay Mansion (but can't do anything here)

 One slap in the face a player will find is the hellish encounter rate, which
 is about double what consistutes "normal" in RPGdom. Because of this, going
 off the beaten path can just be a waste of resources. At this point in time,
 think about grinding a smidge outside of the mansion, since it's a source of
 free healing (in Kairu's room). Also: YOU CAN RUN FROM BATTLE BY HOLDING THE
 B-BUTTON WHEN THE ACTION GAUGE IS FILLED. This question's going to come up
 sooner or later. That said, none of the enemies are too tough -- Snowballs
 die in one hit, Silent Iris just inflict their titular namesake status, and
 that just leaves the wolves as the main damage-dealers.

 As said, Bel Lenora is the southeastern town on the map, and pretty easy to
 spot. Say hello to the top screen's minimap -- it'll be there for...ever.

BEL LENORA [OPTIONAL]     [WK02]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 For the moment, only the residential district is available for exploring,
 and it's accessible by any available teleporter. Visit the general store to
 get some free items (x3 Blue Herb, Antidote, Scarecrow), then it's off to
 loot citizens!

 • 125 GP ------- at Bel Lenora entrance, go east and north to find chest
 • Oppa Oil ----- inn B1, hidden passage between left beds
 • Dart --------- pot in the rightmost house from the center square
 • Scarecrow ---- southwestmost house, pot by staircase
 • Med Antidote - southwestmost house B1, secret room
 • Silver Tiara - "
 • Dart --------- "
 • Poison Dart -- "
 • Blue Herb ---- "

 Said secret room is against the southern wall, where a blind door leads into
 an anteroom full of goodies. At this point, feel free to start the first
 sidequest relating to the town's armor-making scientist (quicklink: SQ01) and
 get some good armor early without much loss.

 When done with the town, it's time to visit the Spirit Temple -- found in
 the mountain pass north of town, remember. 

SPIRIT TEMPLE             [WK03]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Foes: Speagle, Winter Wolf, Silent Iris, Snowball
 Item: Blue Herb, Copper Charm, Dart, Blue Herb, Int Potion, Oppa Oil, Uji Nut

 The monster-filled ascent's rather easy to do, with the path being rather
 straightforward and all items in plain sight. Only the Copper Charm is
 "tricky," and that's more of a scenery thing than a brainbuster -- walk
 underneath a natural bridge to find it. However, don't bother equipping it;
 preventing Freeze status is rather crucial to this icy land.

 The temple at the top of the mount is uneventful. Approach the crystal and
 try to get some magic, then sleep in the NW room. After collecting the final
 three items inside, it's time to return to Averay Mansion -- enjoy the long
 walk.

AVERAY MANSION
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 It'll be nighttime when Kairu arrives back, and the Duke is expecting him to
 report at once. Most of the facilities and corridors are locked at this time,
 although if one talks to Priss on the balcony, she gives a hand-knitted
 [Fur Cap]. Report and get some shuteye. On the morrow, talk with Averay again
 and he'll ask Kairu to take care of the problems down in Axunberg, the SW
 town on the island. Try to exit the castle and Aurora will join the party!
 Now, there are a few things to do with these new developments:

 • Collect two Blue Herbs from the magic instructor in the library
 • Read books in the library for stat boosts (only if not done before though)
 • With Aurora in the lead, get a [Fancy Whip] from musician on mansion's 2F
 • Visit Spirit Temple's crystal with Aurora in the lead to get a +5 SP boost

AXUNBURG [OPTIONAL]     [WK04]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Technically going here is optional, but why wouldn't you? The shops here have
 a bit better inventory than the capital for some reason -- [SH02] -- so think
 about picking up a Long Sword for Kairu and a Radiant Dress for Aurora. She
 should already have a free Fancy Whip, remember! As for items 'round town...

 • Ruby Necklace - SE part of town forest, in hidden clearing
 • 650 GP -------- western part of town forest, hidden (blind) path
 • Dart ---------- weapon shop chest
 • Blue Herb ----- weapon shop chest
 • Torch --------- pot in the house where woman thinks husband's returned
 • Blue Herb ----- chest hidden behind SWmost house
 • Copper Charm -- pot in SW corner of town
 • Blue Root ----- pot by one of SW houses
 • Antidote x2 --- chests in NW house
 • Med Antidote -- chest in NW house (hidden left of stair)
 • Poison Dart --- chest in council hall
 • Blue Root ----- hidden chest in council hall (west wall has secret passage)

 To reach Axenburg Forest, go outside of town and follow the forest north to
 the river's source.

                          The forest is split into three parts: the entrance
 forest, a frozen lake, and the buffer zone before the boss. The forest is
 mapped out above and generally has nothing good, although some herbs can be
 picked (they look like blue flowers) and some off-color crates are hidden in
 some boughs' shadows. The real find here is the [Insect Hide] in the NE dead
 end, and it prevents paralysis on Kairu. As you'll find out, paralysis is one
 of the most annoying statuses in the game, so keep that sucker close. The NW
 entrance leads to the lake.

 LAKE MAP: http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/ds/file/944570/56921

 Now, the lake is rather complicated to describe, so it's got a special map
 for better traversing. There are no enemies to fight here but Kairu's still
 battling frozen ice, which can be traversed once before it breaks off in a
 segment. Falling through the ice spits the team back into the forest's first
 portion, and the lake has to be done again -- d'oh! The special treasure here
 is the [Worn Bracelet] in the NE. Using the colored map, maneuver to the
 NE green segment -- which looks like a 4 -- and go east across its southmost
 tile, then go north across the brown segment to find the goods. You do NOT
 have to fall through the ice to get out at this point, though. The lake's
 exit is in the NW.

 There's free healing and a savepoint here to use, so make the most of 'em.
 North of this buffer area is...

  BOSS: Mother
  ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
   • Attack [single: phys damage]
   • Assault [single: phys damage]
   • Eyes Slasher [single: inflicts Blind]

  Unfortunately, the game's first boss requires Kairu to lose. In fact, he
  couldn't do anything even if he wanted to -- Aurora isn't assisting! Just
  fight a bit until the crustacean dishes out enough punishment.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Following, Kairu is taken back to Averay Mansion and, like before, has to
 meet the duke in his 2F study. This time, Averay asks his son to meet him at
 the Cursed Caves in the SE mountain pass. There are two things to do now if
 y'haven't done 'em already:

 • If you've been doing the Bel Lenora armor-making sidequest, and are up to
   the 2nd step, go visit the scientist to get the fireproof [Onyx Armor]! It
   really comes in handy through the early game.

 • That Ruby Necklace you may've picked up in Axunburg can be returned to the
   girl in Bel Lenora's inn's basement, and she'll leave back to her hometown
   after. This has no (immediate?) reward, apparently... Since it 3 annoying
   statuses, it might be worth keeping.

 Also, after the next dungeon, there won't be anywhere to buy things for a
 bit so stock up on a few healing items now.

 After some events, Kairu will be locked in the cave with the newly-acquired
 [Sword of Averay] and that crafty Aurora, who rejoins the party. Head in a
 bit until the path splits; go the east path. As you'll find soon, skeletons
 still hold some goodies, and the [Blue Root] and [Med Antidote] in plain
 sight are easy to find. Item #2, the [Oppa Oil] is hidden in a blind passage,
 just like #7, the [Str Potion], is. All the rest are in chests or on corpses,
 so proceeding ain't hard overall.

 To reach the end, back at the fork take the under-bridge path along to a cave
 with lots of entrances (west one leads to save/heal point). Take the remaining
 upper passage down a bit, then cut across through a corridor to reach the
 final room. Luckily, there's no boss...but...

 NOTE: Kairu will start getting random (bad) statuses in battle. Head's up.

 After the event, the team ends up in the vacant region of Seramaze. Plenty of
 players have trouble getting out of the starting area since the natural stair
 is semi-camouflaged along the NE cliff. Once onto the next-highest tier go
 counterclockwise to find a savepoint. By now, a few battles should have gone
 by and Kairu will learn the Glacius spell in a special fight. It's also worth
 mentioning that battles here can be particularly brutal and can easily make
 a player waste his/her resources, since even if one runs, enemies usually get
 off two Glacius spells before things end -- not good. Before leaving the
 starting area, get the [Fancy Whip] by the NE rim...even as a duplicate it
 can be sold later for cold cash. Exit's south of there!

 At some ruins, the team meets the mysterious Nephi, who donates a [Totem] to
 the travelers' cause. Going west out of this area can lead to a [Str Potion]
 hidden in the trees, but one has to go south and out to continue. A sidepath
 leads toward Seramaze Village, but some overgrowth blocks the path -- darn.
 Toward the SE part of this screen, locate the [Hazy Whip] in the shade. Two
 screens from there is a free healing point, so if y'want to grind a little
 bit, do that here. [Of course, you may want to trek all the way back to the
 savepoint at some point...] South of the heal circle is...

 BOSS: Doll     HP: ~1500   EXP: 100   GP: 100    DROPS: --------
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Attack [single: physical damage]
  • Purifi [self: cures abnormal statuses]
  • Aira Toxus [horizontal magic: damage + %Sleep/Poison]

  Doll will either be rather manageable or a fierce opponent, depending on how
  the player acts within the first round or two. The Aira Toxus ability it
  uses hits enemies in a horizontal line across the battlefield and can slap
  Poison/Sleep on targets as well -- it can spell disaster immediately! The
  trick to dealing with it is making sure it can never hit two people at once,
  so move Kairu toward the northeast corner (preferably). Glacius owns this
  battle, so have him spam that while Aurora waits around to heal. Since her
  healing abilities can be vital to surviving, that Ruby Necklace looks mighty
  good on her here (nulls sleep). With Glacius spamming going on, this sucker
  won't last too long; however, if he has a close-range target, his piddly
  physical attack gets used more than his abilities. Since Glacius can freeze
  its target in place, perhaps move Kairu in close to bait its punches while
  Aurora stands off and does her thing. [Two hits of Aira Toxus can kill a
  person so equip appropriate healing/reviving items before battle!]

 With the forest's guardian pushing up daisies, one can finally leave this
 god-forsaken monster pit.

WORLD MAP
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Enemies: same as in Seramaze

 Seramaze is contained within a big forest, obviously, and the only way to go
 is eastward to the plains. Fort Domfriu is at the north end of the plains.
 Melmoth Sands, the eastern desert, can also be accessed...well, the first
 screen anyway. The enemies here can really lay a beatdown so avoid it for
 now.

FORT DOMFRIU     [WK08]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Before doing anything, let's loot this place.

 • Torch ---------- barrel by SE corner
 • Silk Dress ----- dresser in (small) eastern barracks 
 • Blue Herb ------ barrel, long barracks interior
 • Iron Net ------- barrel by NWmost house (Mrs. Cockledoodledim, haha)
 • Dart ----------- pot inside NWmost house
 • Strength Wrist - chest by NWmost house; west cliff has a blind passage

 Now, before the normal events can continue, there's a few things to do around
 town: (1) visit the inn and have Aurora heal the broken back guy (2) levitate
 the barrel the two guys are standing near in SE part of town (3) talk with
 the inn bartender. At this point, try to leave via the south entrance and a
 guard will comment on hearing a comrade fall "to the east," a.k.a. the SE
 corner of town. Inspect the soldier for some scenes to play, and Kairu will
 be in an office alone. Walk around a bit before inspecting the door, and
 Nephi will temporarily join the party in exchange for the Sword of Averay.

 At this point, Kairu and Nephi will get onto the eastern cliffside. Collect
 the southern [Oppa Oil] -- it's yer only chance -- and go northward for more
 scenes! The team will automatically arrive at the nearby mountains...

 So, the party starts off as Kairu/Aurora/Nephi. The Cascadilla range can be
 rather arduous until reaching the halfway point of Orchid Valley, so try to
 conserve some resources until then (flee battle?). A little ways in, take the
 east path to re-emerge outside. A [Ruby Necklace] chest is in plain sight and
 helpful for warding of sleep, and Aurora can even practice her pitching if
 the tiny ground sparkle is inspected. Back inside, there'll be an interior
 waterfall area. Start going up the left side of the room until reaching the
 summit, and take the west door to a waterslide leading to a [Liquid Eye]
 accessory. After backtracking to the waterfall area, go east across the tiny
 pond, then climb down to a [Toothed Sword] weapon for Kairu -- schwing! Get
 back up and go east to the sunshiney outdoors, which loops back inside almost
 immediately...to a savepoint!

 Before inspecting the weird west wall, use Scarecrows/Totem and save. Once
 said event is done, Nephi will leave the party and the party will team up
 with "the witch" Isa to battle a mountain baddie...

  • Water Cannon [single: water damage]
  • Chew [single: physical damage, close range only]
  • Tremor [death counter: earth damage @ all]

  Isa has an AoE healing spell that can really be useful, so one strategy is
  to rub shoulders with her so it hits all allies. As long as the team keeps
  their distance from the immobile toad, the Chew attack can be evaded and
  it can turn into a battle of the long-range abilities. It does have a 
  death-counter that targets all allies, but it's worth mentioning that even
  if it does kill everyone, the team still "wins" anyway -- all experience is
  just lost. [DROP: Blue Root]

 Isa joins the party afterwards, and the way back down is blocked by debris.
 Back in the savepoint room, take the west paths to the halfway point of this
 dungeon...

ORCHID VALLEY
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This sleepy mountain town is nestled in between the Cascadillas, separating
 them in two. It's also a reprieve from the annoying encounter rate, so it'll
 make a good spot to level up a bit. The shop here [SH04] has some good items,
 and the girls should get a Flower Circlet that'll resist poison. Don't
 bother shelling out for a Bone Necklace; a free one's gotten in a bit. Of
 course, there are some items to steal around this area, too...

 • Lucivar Herb --- barrel by western house
 • Lucivar Herb --- barrel in NE shop
 • Sunlight Robe -- storage cave by NW house
 • Uji Nut -------- storage cave by NW house
 • Lucivar Herb --- storage cave by NW house
 • 200 GP --------- west cave, hidden passage

TEMPLE OF LUCIVAR [OPTIONAL]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 If you exit town via the south road, the team can stumble upon the Temple of
 Lucivar, landlocked in a forest nearby. It's not a dungeon of any kind, but
 it does have some items to loot: [Lucivar Herb] and an [Ancient Amulet]. One
 can return here much later to receive a summon from the beam of light; until
 then, though, the only thing to do is return to Orchid Valley and start the
 trek west through town.

CASCADILLA (WEST)
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This portion starts by taking the NW cave passage in Orchid Valley, leading
 south to a few treasures: an [Uji Nut], [Lucivar Herb], and Isa's [Typhoon]
 on an outer ledge. A higher ledge accessible from the SW also leads up to a
 [Haze Whip], which Aurora should've gotten a long while back. The west
 exterior path loops back east to the interior, and becomes straightforward
 from there. Be sure to get that free [Bone Necklace] on a tiny outcrop 'fore
 splitting to the world map.

WORLD MAP
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The destination city of Tradefair is along the north shore, almost a straight
 shot from the Cascadilla exit. However, going east a bit, will lead to the
 Cytherian Bridge, currently guarded by Sammarkand idiots. The only reason to
 come here is to collect the rather useless [Scarlet Petal] accessory, found
 by taking the southern wall exit by the guards and looping under the bridge.
 This bestows Auto-Berserk, so...yeah. To Tradefair!

 Before continuing with anything, there is a dungeon coming up right after
 this that can really put a player in a bad spot, resource-wise. Some people
 have gone through 70+ Blue Herbs (allegedly) just trying to figure out what
 to do, and while this guide should ensure no one gets that lost, keep in mind
 that if you continue without getting at least a few healing resources/Totems,
 it's YOUR head on the choppin' block. Think about upgrading equipment Kairu
 and Aurora's equipment as well, but NOT Isa's -- that should save some $$$ in
 for awhile. Save when ready to proceed.

 At the rich district's tavern, talk with the robed guy, then help Gavin out
 as he tries to exit via a window -- this earns a [Blue Potion]. In the slums,
 the dock storage area is the next destination. As the Sammarkand army nears,
 Isa stays behind to fend off the troops while Kairu and Aurora accidentally
 get separated, floating downstream. D'oh! Isa will have a short box-moving
 section in order to stall the enemies, where moving them in front of the
 paths prevents the soldiers from advancing. Simple stuff. If you want to get
 the [Ancient Amulet] here -- and this is the only chance -- quickly move
 around and trigger the three gray machines, making a bridge to the isolated
 platform. Any soldiers that make it to the north must be fought before the
 event can end.

____________________________________________|   platform; no going back!

 After disembarking from the boat, the only place within miles is the forest
 temple nearby. Here, the team meets Asi, a swordsman who joins the party in
 order for the two newcomers to help him traverse the dungeon. One caveat:
 NO MAGIC CAN BE USED WITHIN. This can make this trip quite hellish, so you
 had better've brought some healing items with. If you didn't, that's okay --
 this can be remedied at the free healing point inside. But that's a ways off,
 so don't dawdle if you're nigh resourcless. [Also, Asi's equipment cannot be
 changed in any way.] Before entering, get the [Totem] hidden outside.

 Inside, avoid any of the antechambers -- thieves picked them clean. Make sure
 to get the [Scarecrow] in the left branch of the hallway, and the [Silver
 Helmet] hidden in a east wall as one heads north (see map). After going down
 to BF1, simply head north, but make a mental note of the leftside room that
 contains a summon we can pick up later. Down on BF2, head north to an event
 that separates the party: Kairu by himself, the rest in their own group.

 Kairu's by himself first off, so collect the [Blue Potion] where he lands and
 heal up before continuing eastward to what will be known as "the annoying
 elevator room". The split party can reunite here, but not before doing their
 own thing a bit. To ride an elevator, stand on the tablet-like tile in front
 of the moving objects (yes, those are elevators; yes, they don't look like
 one) and jump on with the action button. Elevators drop a character off at
 the next-highest or -lowest landing, but they can be ridden in one direction
 more than once, remember!

 For Kairu, ride his platform up once then down the remaining, ending up by
 a [Velvet Glove] and the free healing point. When prompted, switch to the
 other characters with X-button and do their easy-peasy part. The team will
 reunite at the healing point and the rest of the dungeon can be done then,
 although if you're smart, you'll (1) eventually return and save at the part
 on Kairu's path (2) consider grinding a bit around the healing point, since
 enemies may drop Blue Potions, and those things come in very handy!

 Okay, so the party reunited. Using the map above, there are two ways to go:

 JUST LEAVE: G,F,E,G,G
 GET ITEMS : H, Item, G,G,G,H, Item, H,G,F,E,G,G

 After all this the team should arrive at the ground floor, where the lifts
 are just appearing from their holes. Riding "H" up one more time will lead
 to a 2nd healing point for convenience's sake, but the real way to go is the
 "I" path stairway, leading down further. Here, there are two elevators in the
 SW and SE, accessible by half-hidden passages. The former has a [Blue Potion]
 to get, but the other -- "K" -- is the right way to go.

 Now on the penultimate floor, go north and arc west to the [Travel Clothes]
 chest on the broken masonry, then start clockwise to end up in this floor's
 NW corner, the "L" elevator. Take it down to the final floor and start the
 trek east, coming to the basement ruins. Inspecting the large room in the
 center will make Asi leave the party, so you may want to get the [Broken Axe]
 in the far east (hidden) passage before that, just so he can eat some damage
 and earn his keep!

 Once Asi leaves, head north to the "M" elevator and arrive back at the room
 where everyone fell through the floor. The exit is going through the north
 door here, although y'may want to return to the world map and save if needed.

 Upon entering this place for the first time, the self-imposed ban on magic
 usage is over, so this shouldn't be quite as annoying as the previous outing.
 The first treasure chest seen is out of reach, but upon getting to the east
 side of it, look for a hop-down point in the south wall, leading around to
 the [Iron Gauntlet]. This is weak to water so y'may not want to equip at all,
 though. The next chest is also in the east, and can also be accessed from the
 side opposite it -- a [Blue Root] always helps!

 Upon reaching the 2nd screen's healing point, Nephi rejoins the party for the
 time being. Make sure to equip him again, since all his previous things were
 removed when he left in the Cascadillas. This is also a good point to level
 up a bit in -- Level 9-10 for everyone is good, since Nephi has to play some
 catch-up. East leads to the 3rd screen.

 Right near the start, the ceiling overhang masks an [Ancient Amulet] on an
 unseen path, so snag that before finding the watery eastern portion. Locate
 the [Totem] and Nephi's [Magna Armor], then the [Rippler Sword] in the SE
 corner. Heal up before approaching the remaining bridge fragment north of
 there, since it cues a boss fight...

  This weird mecha-octopus is accompanied by three tentacle monsters, who
  should be the first targets to destroy -- they're the weakest and waste
  precious time, plus some can inflict Berserk, and that's never any fun. The
  easiest way is to use the dual tech Flamma Sword, which has a big enough
  range that it can OHKO any tentacles in range. With all the tentacles all
  bloodied up, any "Touch" skill is off the table, which just leaves the boss
  and its single-target nonsense. It seems to be immune to Nox Debilitas-type
  abilities but it can definitely be poisoned, if y'need the extra help.

 With the local killing machine breathing its last, simply walk onto the world
 map like you own the place! 

WORLD MAP
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Cythere, the next town, is located in the south, so use the nearby coastline
 as a breadcrumb trail. These plains also connect to Fort Domfriu and the
 Cytherian Bridge (west side). The former isn't accessible, but one can find
 a [Sta Potion] and [Blue Potion] in the upstairs of the bridge's barracks.
 The Cascadilla entrance is also accessible but the cave-in prevents one from
 reaching Orchid Valley, so there's not much to do there either. To Cythere!

 Note that once you enter, you can still leave -- the portcullis just makes it
 seem like a one-way trip. Anyway, the items found around town are either in
 recepticles or chests, nothing too hard to find. And yes, there are three
 pairs of those stupid Travel Clothes to find for some reason. Check out the
 town shops [SH05] as well, giving priority to healing/SP items, since those
 will probably be more useful coming up.

 Of course, since Cythere is toted as the prettiest city, it only makes sense
 that a lot of the items would look good on the allies... Time for a 5-finger
 discount!

 • [Iron Armor] is in a room near the staircase to 2F
 • [Int Potion] is in the royal chambers on 2F
 • [Vermillion Whip] is in a ground-floor armory (x1.5 damage to humans!)
 • [Blue Root] is in the castle's west tower, a 3F barrel
 • [Mind Cure] and [Liquid Tonic] are also in the west tower 3F
 • [Iron Gauntlet] and [Cloud Eye] are on west tower 3F, accessed via a hidden
   passage through the east wall.

 When ready to continue with the game, visit the castle lobby and find the
 guard blocking the way into a room -- Isa is waiting for everyone here. She
 says an room is reserved for the team, this being the inn near the entrance.
 Once the innkeep knows the situations, the team will find Nephi waiting for
 'em, and agreeing to rest will start the next events. Considering saving out
 of town before this, since one won't be able to visit Cythere for a very,
 very long time. [If you didn't see the castle statue Rogurd spoke of before,
 that has to be seen first.]

INVASION PT. I: STREETS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The team will wake up in the inn, finding Nephi gone once again, and the
 town under attack by Sammarkand. Of course the team wants to assist the
 Cytherians, so save in the inn if you think it wise, then hit the streets.
 The strategy is to paralyze the chain of command by defeating Mondu, standing
 at the castle steps, but there are other mini-battles in the crosswalks that
 the team can assist in as well. Those mundane enemies are Lieutenants [1100HP]
 that can eat resources in the long run, but aren't that tough. Heck, y'could
 have defeated one back in Tradefair as part of the "Citizen Bane" sidequest.
 Since they're human type enemies, that Vermillion Whip can do extra damage,
 mind you. 

 Also, helping out the allies will give a reward in a short while. The worst
 reward involves helping no one and fighting minimal enemies, while the best
 reward (Wave Bracer) involves killing all but one enemy and healing all (4)
 fallen Cytherians, while the reward for doing killing/saving everyone is a
 pathetic Vigor Talisman. [There's a soldier hidden by the rooftops near the
 inn, #11 on map, in case you're wondering.]

 Approaching the castle starts a boss fight.

 BOSS: Mondu  HP: 4000  EXP: 400  GP: 400  TYPE: Human  STRONG/WEAK: ---
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Attack [single: phys damage]
  • Blue Potion [self: heals 250 HP]
  • Acid Bomb [single: Adds DEF Down]
  • Torch [single: phys damage + %Flaming]
  • Power Slam [single: phys damage + %Paralysis]
  • Crescent Smash [local area: physical damage, 2-hit; about 66 damage]

  You've been wanting to rip this guy a new orifice for a long time, and now
  the chance has come. Surprisingly, he is and will remain a pretty lame
  fighter and his bag of tricks is rather small. The key to this is moving
  Kairu ahead on the bridge, blocking Mondu's path of advance. This ensures
  that his best attack can never hit both allies, which pares this down to a
  single-target hit-n'-heal strategy. The team can usually get in two attacks
  to Mondu's one, but he does have a lot of HP so this may draw out -- make
  sure to have some Uji Nuts/potion types equipped on both people! Also, if
  Kairu has the Onyx Armor, he can null damage done from Flaming status. For
  extra help, use a Torch of your own on Mondu, useful for keeping up the
  damage output if Kairu is hit with paralysis.

 Following the insane victory, the POV switches over to Isa

INVASION PT. II: CASTLE
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Enemies: S. Swordsman, S. Combat Medic

 Isa starts on 3F of the west tower, which should already have been looted for
 all it's worth. She'll be alone so make sure to equip her properly! Justini
 talked about a hidden path on the first floor, in the north, and it happens
 to be west of the armory. Speaking of which, feel free to steal everything
 in the armory (Hero Drink, Strong Antidote, Iron Gauntlet) and the treasury
 on 2F (Hero Drink, Star Shard, Gold Ring, Paladin Dome). Once Isa goes down
 the secret path and meets Nephi, the Cythere events end. One of the soldiers
 nearby will also give the team an item depending on how many comrades were
 healed in the Streets portion of the invasion.

  0-1 Soldiers Saved ------------- No Item
  2-4 Soldiers Saved ------------- Blue Root x3
  All Saved, Not All Foes Killed - Wave Bracer
  All Saved, All Foes Killed ----- Vigor Talisman

WORLD MAP

 The destination is now the High Paths, the roundabout entrance leading to
 Genufa. The entrance is in the southwest, or if you prefer, just follow the
 eastern mountain range southward. Either way, there's no going back to
 Cythere for the moment...

 This is one of the great maps for running around in weakened condition. Sure
 it's something y'wouldn't normally do, but the enemy formations practically
 ensure that no game overs are shown. Fr'instance: (1) Monstrocks waste their
 turn with the no-damage Nox Debilitas ability (2) Summit Wolfs typically
 lead off with Battle Cry, which buys time for escaping (3) the environments
 are so narrow that even if one gets off a physical/magical attack, the rest
 of the monsters usually don't. If you don't like walking around in critical
 HP, that's fine, but don't forget that one can also get free SP by walking
 around.

 Talk with Isa at the entrance and she'll join the party, the first time there
 has been a 4-man crew. Of course, someone has to sit out, so if you want to
 change the party, you have to be on the world map or at a savepoint -- none
 of that works on the field! Isa will be at least 3-5 levels behind everyone
 else (probably), so either use this time to let her play catch-up (she will
 be used heavily from now on) or leave her out for later. Remember that allies
 who aren't used can still heal those who are! She gets the effects of SP
 regen like the others too, i.e. walking around heals her supply. But anyway...

 Follow through the savepoint cave until reaching the outer cliffs. Going the
 northeast route first chance leads to a [Grapnel] whip, almost doubling the
 attack of Aurora's current. Double-back and go the southeast route, leading
 up to a cave. Inside are some goodies, the best of which are the [Silver
 Spheres] Nephi can use. From the cave, go due west and take the southern path
 a few screens, until seeing a mysterious guy in white jump around. Protip:
 this will be a telltale sign of an upcoming boss fight, and will be reused a
 few times in the future.

 To prepare, make sure Kairu is fully cured and has the best SP/HP refilling
 items equipped, because he'll be fighting the boss solo. Also, if you picked
 up the Liquid Eye in Cascadilla and didn't sell it, equip that along with the
 Wave Bracer -- it'll null water damage. I suggest saving beforehand, with all
 the place's items already obtained, to avoid needless backtracking if
 something goes awry. Inside the room the white-robed guy entering before...

 BOSS: Yuei  HP: ~2500  EXP: 400  GP: 500  STRONG/WEAK: ---  DROPS: Black Cloak
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Curo Fira [self: heals HP]
  • Flamma [single: fire damage]
  • Tornadus [area: wind damage]
  • Nox Protego [self: adds DEF+]
  • Glacius [single: water damage]
  • Crush Wave [medium area: physical damage]
  • Physica Absorbus [single: drains HP]

  As said before, Kairu fights this guy all by his lonesome, so he pretty much
  has to stack the odds in his favor ahead of time. Equipping healing/SP items
  is a must, but the Onyx Armor and Liquid Eye/Wave Bracer can nullify fire and
  water damage, respectfully. Kairu should move to the NE corner of the map
  and start spamming Dash Strike, while avoiding physical attacks which draws
  him into close-range -- Tornadus range. The boss will occasionally heal
  himself but with his long-range attacks doing zero damage, it just becomes a
  waiting game, seeing who can last the longest with their SP reserves. [I
  suppose an alternate method to fighting Yui is to equip the wind-resisting
  Cloud Eye and bait him into using Tornadus, which is a high-SP move that
  may drain his reserves quicker.] Since the boss doesn't move, just keep
  Kairu away and try to outlast. Hopefully Kairu begins without any annoying
  cursemark-related status effects, which can REALLY make this battle vexing.
  Feel free to use Poison Darts/Torches to counteract his repetitive healing.

 With the assassin successfully smoked, head south from the cave to a mini
 crossroads. The west and east path leads to treasure chests in dead-ends,
 while the southern path leads to 2 chests and the correct way to proceed.
 The Genufan rest stop, err, encampment is accessible from the nearby cave.
 After some scenes, loot the place for its items -- the [Twin Crescents] and
 [1000 GP] in particular -- and find the southern savepoint before heading
 into Melmoth Sands. The camp also has free healing and a shopkeep [SH06] to
 sample, so don't be afraid to use this place as a training ground.

 Isa explains the premise for getting through here immediately: the secret
 path to Genufa is peppered with blue plants, and following that path will
 be the surefire way to reach the city. However, if you look at the colorized
 map, you'll see that a lot of the items lay off the beaten path, and the
 "surefire way" isn't synonymous with "the quickest way".

 Upon going through the cave and reaching the desert proper, there flowery
 trail extends east. In the far east is a [Sun Hat], but doubling back a bit
 and going SW leads to a [Blue Potion] on a cliff. Near the Sun Hat chest is
 a path going south, and a [Silica Bracer] is hidden a little off the flowery
 path. In fact, to save yourself some time, ignore the flowers here and follow
 the south wall east, eventually reaching a new screen.

 On the map, see Treasures 8, 9, and 10? They're far off the beaten path, but
 if you want to get them now, this is the best time. At the multi-branching
 crossroads, go north and find the slim passages in the cliff wall, eventually
 reaching said items. They're just stat potions so they may not be that cool,
 but might as well get 'em now. Doubling back to said multi-branch path, follow
 south with the flower path, then curve west and north to the [Oppa Oil] item.
 If you can't find this low road, the foreground cliff obscures the background
 road. Return south further, making for the fifth item, a [Sand Eye], inside a
 dead-end cave.

 Got the Sand Eye? Good. Return north to the flowery path and follow it east,
 to the [Int Potion] cave. Treasure #7 is empty so feel free to ignore that,
 and ride the flower trail until it its the eastern border of the desert. By
 going north here, one can reach the lower part of Melmoth Caves, containing
 items #11 and #12. The latter sits in plain sight past one of the stairs, but
 the awesome [Zeion Glove] is on a hidden stair -- to find it, identify the two
 statues and go south through the blind door. Said glove is a collectible item
 and part of a sidequest, so make sure to NOT sell it for greater rewards later
 on.

 With all the excitement over, return to the flower trail and ride it to its
 length. A [Laced Boots] accessory is in a left cave, while the right trail
 leads to Genufa. Of course, something appears to block the advancement...

  • Nox Ico [small area: dark damage + %Sleep/Poison]
  • Too weak to cause Tremor! [damage counter: does nothing]
  • Boneshaker [single: phys damage (long-range) + %SPD Down]

  If you've ever fought a full-fledged Melmoth Worm, you know it counters all
  attacks with Tremor, an attack-all earth type spell that can really make the
  going tough. Luckily, this wounded worm lacks that ability, so putting this
  sucker out of its misery shouldn't be too difficult. Besides strategies one
  employed earlier (healer stays back, stay far apart, etc.), the boss is also
  immune to poison, so that method of HP shaving won't cut it here. The boss'
  parting shot is the actual Tremor ability though, which can do in the high
  double digits if one doesn't have earth-guarding equipment, the low single
  digits if one does. [DROPS: Worm's Teeth]

 Surprisingly, Genufa doesn't have a lot going on -- it's basically a bunch of
 people hiding in caves. However, despite having only a meager shop [SH07] and
 and out-of-the-way savepoint (in Ring of Memories' north-central room), it's
 still got a lot of items to score.

 To continue, visit the barracks to let Sakuji know a meeting will be held,
 then arrive at the northern library where Nephi temporarily leaves the party.
 The conference room is nearby and, after some scenes, the team can run around
 while they wait. Dawdle a bit (inspect north-central locked door, try to exit,
 see NE deactivated doll, etc.) and speak with the guard again to see the
 council. After, talk with Telesphorus in the eastern library, it's time to
 find Isa -- she's in the secret spot accessible from the NE caves in town.
 Return to the Ring of Memories library once done, and the team will decide to
 get a boat in order to assault Apogea Tower.

 Talk to Sakuji at the library's entrance if y'want to leave to the world
 map (Genufan Port) or return to Melmoth Sands' entrance. Know that for the
 latter, you will have to walk all the way back! Upon picking the port option
 the team is set onto the world map east of the Genufan desert. Go north to
 the forest and find the semi-hidden house, actually a boat dock, where Juji
 hooks everyone up with a sweet schooner.

WORLD MAP
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This boat can only go in the shallows, but luckily the world has a ton of
 shallows, cutting across the central ocean and back again. A few things are
 available here:

 • Returning to Tradefair for part two of the "Runaway!" sidequest
 • Visiting Tida's Reef on the north-central island (not recommended)
 • Visiting Gavin's house, a house on the NW side of the central continent
 • Visit Arkal Cliffs on north-central continent, but Gavin blocks way forward

 To visit Tradefair, disembark on the east coast near Cythere, go SW to the
 Cytherian Bridge (can now cross), and find the town again. As for Tida's Reef,
 it has some good items and a summon for an upcoming character, but is full of
 enemies who can two-shot the characters. Basically, come packing a crapload
 of items or put it off for later. Gavin's House has a [Sun Gem] but nothing
 else at the moment.

 TO CONTINUE with the game, take the boat through the mountainous strait on
 the central continent's west side, which should cue some scenes that split
 the party up.

LANLAT     [WK17]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Kairu and Isa managed to stick together, and happen upon Rogurd ("Adventurer
 Extraordinaire") who joins as the third member. Make sure to equip him with
 some better stuff, since he starts with pretty weak crap. As Rogurd says,
 Apogea Tower is northeast of the campsite (through a huge forest actually)
 but Lanlat should be the next destination for healing & equipment. It's right
 on the west coast. The shop [SH09] is meager but sufficient and has some good
 stuff for Rogurd, while a lower house gives free rest -- hooray.

 • [Diver's Mask] in shop chest
 • [Harpoon] is in one of the lower houses

 I recommend everyone being about Lv16-17 before going to Apogea Tower, since
 there's a gigantor boss to fight out in front. Uji Nuts can't be fought in
 Lanlat but sometimes foes drop 'em, so that's the method if y'need 'em. Once
 the tower is entered -- it's in the mountainous eastern forest, remember --
 the POV switches to the other errant allies.

 Corridor of Clouds is a pretty crappy "dungeon," having little to no puzzles
 and being rather straightforward despite all the lateral elevators. In the
 first ruins area, the house husk the stair goes over has a hidden [Dragoon
 Darts] inside, a good weapon for Nephi. The southern bushes contain 2 [Blue
 Potions], and a [Totem]'s here there, too. The 2nd item, a [Winged Mantle] is
 toward the far east side in the mandatory path, and is pretty hard to miss.
 Get it now because upon reaching Apogea Tower's 3F, the elevator returns and
 the way back is blocked. The POV will switch back over to the Rogurd's
 squad though, and that'll start the real exploration of Apogea Tower...

 the doorway, a ridiculously rubefascient rapscallion must die!

 BOSS: Spirit Beast  HP: 4000  EXP: 800  GP: 400  STRONG/WEAK: ---  DROPS: 
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Provoke [single: %Berserk]
  • Curo Aira [self: heals HP]
  • Attack [single: physical damage]
  • Tornadus [medium area: wind damage]
  • Glacius [small area: water damage + %Freeze]

  This boss can be a handful, no doubt, but there is one hilarious way to go
  through this: Isa and Rogurd's double-tech "Toxus Rush," which can do about
  1000 damage as well as inflicting Sleep. Even if it's not put to sleep at
  once, the player can usually get a few in to knock the boss' HP down to
  triple digits. This is a good tactic to abuse since Provoke will gut this
  strategy. Should the strategy keep up, it can be a 4-round battle, with
  the odd man out (Kairu) just playing healer. It's possible to beat this son
  of a gun with no strategy at all, also, but that's no fun. Tornadus can be
  a killer though, so spreading out is wise (and doesn't affect any useful
  double techs).

 With that over, collect the [Totem] hidden in the SW trees, heal/save on
 the world map, and start the ascension! 2F is actually the largest of all
 the floors, so it'll take the most time to go through. If you check the map,
 finding all of them should be easy; however, there are a few cases where
 things are more than they seem:

 1) The SW building of this area is an abandoned shop. The east wall can be
    used to get to the counter's other side, where all the items are down the
    stairs.

 2) In the NW building just off the center square ("Ancient Storage"), all of
    the open containers still hold items, so don't skip them!

 3) Said "Ancient Storage" room has a false wall on the west side, which can
    lead down to the 9th item.

 All in all, 2F can be fun to traverse. Make sure to get Items 14-17 as they
 are great equipment! Upon reaching 3F, the two outbuildings have little to
 see, but the left one has a few items. South of the entrance will allow the
 teams to rejoin. From here, reach 4F, defeat some generic Sammarkand goons,
 and reach 5F, which is where the real puzzle starts.

5-7F ELEVATOR PUZZLE
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This part has been the bane of many a player, and really, freeballin' this
 can be very annoying. However, the solution ends up being rather easy if one
 knows how the elevators work. There are four elevators that run through 5-7F,
 and they come in pairs: E & F, G & H. Think of each pair as working on an
 inverse-type pulley system: when one goes up, the other goes down; when one
 is on the 5F, the other is on 7F. Thus, the meeting point is 6F. In order to
 get all items and such, here is the method, starting from 5F.

 1) Collect Items #20 and #21 on 5F; take "H" to 6F
 2) Collect item #22; take "H" to 7F
 3) Collect Item #23; take "H" to 5F
 4) Take "E" to 7F, collect Item #25
 5) Take "G" to 5F, collect Item #24, return to 6F
 6) Take "H" to 5F, board "F", collecting Item #26 en route
 7) Reach "I" elevator leading to 8F!

 Of course you'll want to save/heal before starting the summit trek, which is
 easy to do once yer at the top. At said summit...

 BOSS: Mondu  HP: 4000  EXP: 620  GP: 660  TYPE: Human  STRONG/WEAK: ---

  • Attack [single: phys damage]
  • Blue Potion [self: heals 250 HP]
  • Acid Bomb [single: Adds DEF Down]
  • Torch [single: phys damage + %Flaming]
  • Power Slam [single: phys damage + %Paralysis]
  • Crescent Smash [local area: physical damage, 2-hit; about 66 damage]

  Almost a rehash of the Cythere battle, except this time rocks-for-brains
  has a few cronies, two Lieutenants and an S. Combat Medic. Take out the
  latter first, then the rest before tackling Mondo. If you have Isa with, her
  Aira Toxus skill really cleans up these goofballs. Since Mondu starts on the
  east side, moving anyone adjacent will pin the guy there, ensuring his best
  attacks are reduced to single-target status. If a difficulty was to be
  applied, it would fall in the 2-3/10 range -- a yawnfest.

 Despite a staggering defeat, the scenes don't go the allies way and they'll
 lose [Isa's Necklace] to the foes. There will be a 10:00 timer to exit the
 tower -- the counter runs during battles, and failing to reach the starting
 point within the time limit is a game over. This much should probably be
 obvious though. Luckily, there's a (mandatory) shortcut on 3F that foregoes
 backtracking through 2F. At the end, the tower collapses, Rogurd leaves
 the party to do his own thang, and everyone returns to Genufa automatically.

 Kairu starts the Genufa portion alone, although as he thinks about finding
 Isa, he bumps into Nym, the redheaded "savage" from Apogea Tower. Talking to
 him will let him join the party and, man, does he ever rock the house -- when
 he gets his summons, that is. He doesn't start off with anything special but
 does boast the only ability (Nym's Trick) that can steal items from foes. So,
 once he's equipped properly, it's time to find Isa -- she's in her house by
 the entrance. Some events later, Kairu unseals the door to Abraxus' study in
 the library savepoint area, which starts the mini-dungeon ahead.

  • Attack [single: physical damage]
  • Smash [single: physical damage + %SPD Down]

  ...but before entering, two of these weak morons attack the team. There's no
  need for strategy really, although Isa's Aira Toxus spell can put some to
  sleep, aiding in the tag-teaming. Yawn.

 Okay, with the prelim fight over with, the Ring of Memories' dungeon portion
 is accessible. The hidden library's first room has two antechambers in the
 east and west, leading to free healing (finally!) and a summon for Nym,
 respectively. The summon cannot be obtained yet however, but soon... As
 Telephorus says, there are a few caveats to proceeding through this dungeon:

 • To unseal each floor's exit, a special book must be brought to Telesphorus
 • Fake books (Yellow Folio battles) are used to unseal the library's summon
 • Once a floor is cleared, no monsters ever appear on it again

 If you want to clear a floor immediately and collect treasures without any
 monster encounters, that's fine too. Anyway, on the first floor, the special
 book is located in the NE on a desk -- easy to find and swipe. Telesphorus,
 once he's seen the book, will give the clue to the next floor: there are two
 passages leading down to B2. One is in the SW bookcase blocking the stair,
 the other is a pit hidden underneath a bookcase in the SE room ("C"). Make
 sure to get the [Vigil Ring] hidden on B1 near Item #3; it's very easy to
 miss.

 Taking the normal stairway down to B2 can earn items #5-7, but the "C" floor
 hole is the only way to enter the southeast section, where the next book is.
 Showing Telesphorus this gives the clue that an illusory wall in B2's north
 section blocks the way forward; once inspected, the door is revealed. Items
 #8 and #9 can be gotten en route here, and the northeast staircase is sitting
 in plain sight. Down there, open that illusory wall and proceed to...

  • Diabolus [medium area (also potential death-counter): dark damage + %Death]

  Probably the most annoying boss fought up 'til now, and for one reason: it
  has 5000 SP and it may counter-cure itself (about 50% chance) if hit. There
  are essentially two ways to tackle this oversized garbage can: (1) use
  Aurora's Magus Absorbus ability and drain all its HP, preventing it from
  regenerating HP (2) avoid multiple small attacks and just use high-damage
  double-attacks. Now, Aurora has to be of a high level to actually learn the
  skill required, but if she knows it, this battle is gravy. For the first
  option, choosing the right skill is crucial, and in this case, that skill
  is Isa & Kairu's Storm Strike, which can also inflict sleep. Since Nym has
  no combos with anyone and the boss has nothing to steal, he should be left
  outta this one. It's death-counter Diabolus has the ability to instantly
  kill the targets it hits but doesn't always work; on the flipside, even if
  it were to instantly kill everyone, it wouldn't be a game over, everyone
  would just lose their EXP.

 With Storm Strike (or Magus Absorbus) saving the day, the final room of

                              An Int Potion for getting zero answers right is
 really a brush-off of the highest academic level, if y'think about it, haha.
 Anyway, the new mission is to find an airship and get to Sammarkand's region,
 which has no coasts for boats to land on. Y'should already know how to get
 to the dock hidden on the coast east of Genufa's desert, so fire that craft
 up. Before leaving, make sure to get the Judge of Sun summon from the Ring
 of Memories F1 (east side), which is unlocked after finding the four evil
 books in the dungeon below.

WORLD MAP
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The destination is the Arkal Cliffs, on the north-central continent's north
 side. However, there's a few things to do here, mostly relating to Nym's
 "Summoned" sidequest -- remember, he only learns ability by making contracts
 with spirits.

 • Get Judge of Sun summon in Ring of Memories
 • Get Tida summon from Tida's Reef
 • Get Lucivar summon from Temple of Lucivar, south of Orchid Valley

 Judge of Summon is overpowered and awesome, and really the only one Nym needs
 at the moment. Tida's Reef is on the small island west of the north-central
 continent and has high-powered monsters, but probably nothing the team can't
 handle if they're properly equipped and tote some items with (as well as
 fleeing like jackrabbits every battle). Y'should already know how to get to
 the Temple of Lucivar -- backtrack to Tradefair's region by way of the
 Cytherian Bridge, and enter the tail-end of the Cascadillas, working back to
 the middle. It's a long way for a summon that is pretty lame, so feel free to
 put it off for later.

 As said, Tida's Reef is located on the tiny island west of the north-central
 continent. It's really just to sections but the enemies here can be really
 brutal, so be sure to cure every other battle or so. Inside the first cave,
 make sure to pick up the good accessories in the underpath cave, before going
 east to the stairs down. In the 2nd screen's outdoors area, the round path
 leads to a few branches, the SW having Nym's summon. This actually gives him
 a double-tech with Kairu, and one he sorely needs! A [Twin Crescents] is in
 the east but that should be obsolete now, since the Ancient Blades in Ring of
 Memories tops it. Backtrack out safely when y'can!

     |1        |       Luckily, the annoying monster abilities are the hardest
      ŻŻŻ| |ŻŻŻ        thing to overcome -- the dungeon itself has very few
       |Ż   Ż|         surprises. The first two items are found en route to
        Ż|_|Ż          the cave entrance, which criss-crosses a lower path one
        START          can access once back outside. Said lowroad leads to the
                       paralysis-inflicting Gladius sword, which should get
 stuck on Kairu immediately. The midway savepoint should be used as well and
 later too, perhaps, after the area's items are collected. Follow the twisty
 cliff until it comes to a sparkle -- this cues an event where a bird picks up
 the team and drops 'em higher.

 BOSS: Isai  HP: 7000  EXP: 700  GP: 700  STRONG/WEAK: ---  STEAL: Silver Claw
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Slay [single: %Death]
  • Nox Protego [self: %DEF+]
  • Physica Absorbus [single: drains HP]
  • Nox Ico [small area: dark damage + %Poison]
  • Glacius [small area: water damage + %Freeze]
  • Hypnotism [physical counter (single): %Charm]

  The terrain here can be rather annoying, and letting Isai get control of it
  -- by getting into the center -- can be rather devestating. Perhaps the best
  way to go about this is to have someone with deathproof equipment trap the
  boss in the north, ensuring his Slay ability can only be used locally (and
  miss), while the other allies bombard him with summons and long-range skills.
  Letting him in the middle allows for great double tech opportunities but as
  said, he spams Slay a lot, so don't let him near those unprotected. HOWEVER,
  if you've already picked up the game's three Ancient Amulets thus far (in
  Temple of Lucivar, Tradefair, and Underwater Passage), then the entire team
  can enjoy Slay-free entertainment while _they_ slay Isai. I'd watch it!
  My team for this is Kairu/Nym/Isa, since Aurora will have to depend on
  double techs to heal everyone, but it's possible to win with her (especially
  if she knows Magus Absorbus, which easily whittles down Isai's 1500 SP).

 Now that Isai's burial mound is finished, the next stop is to the south of
 here. Thanks heavens there's nowhere to get lost in!

 All the tiny events leading up to the next major dungeon will be stuck in
 this area, for reference.

ARKAL SKYBASE
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 If you thought there'd be a Metal Gear Solid-like sneaking mission here,
 think again -- the soldiers can't even fathom someone going through the
 mountains. And that's good! Gives free time to get items.

 • [Bone Necklace] in eastern shack
 • [Iron Net] in westernmost house's bucket
 • [Cat-o-nine-tails] whip in middle shack (east side)
 • [Mechanic Boots] by NW landing platform's base
 • [Silver Ring] from northern granny if answer is "With all my heart!"

 To continue, visit the NW landing dock for a scene with Mondu, then regroup
 in the inn. As luck would have it, three soldiers walk in, and it'll be time
 to steal their uniforms. The options are to have one of the allies (not Nym)
 speak with the vets and find some way to get the clothes off their back,
 literally. Aurora's options are the funniest and her sex appeal can get the
 items without a fight, although some of the options will force a fight with
 the enemies (x3 S. Swordsman) which should be no problem. With the uniforms
 snatched, the northern inn room is where the boarding events can start.

 NOTE: Some people experience a glitch where if Kairu does the negotiating,
       future events screw up and he has no allies to assist him. Apparently
       letting one of the girls do the talking is the workaround, so do that.
       Think about saving beforehand, though.

         ŻŻŻ
 As for the enemies, most are out and about but a few are hiding (one on each
 floor; lower-left and lower-right on lowest and middle floors, respectively)
 to make things harder. Then there's the enemies in the mess hall. They won't
 fight the party until they're done chowing down. It's generally accepted that
 there is a hidden time mechanism that decides when the enemies are done with
 their food, usually between 0:45-2:00 -- it is definitely NOT based on having
 killed the other enemies. Whatever you do, talk to them in the mess hall the
 first chance y'get on 2F, as it should pay off later.

 NOTE: The counter is running continuously throughout the event, and when it
 ends, the event concludes. HOWEVER, if it ends while in battle, that battle
 is not negated, which is important if y'fight the mess hall soldiers within
 the last few seconds.

 So is there any reason to get the Palace Pass? Kinda. Having it will let the
 player get a Stone Flower accessory (if they have an Entertainer Pass a well)
 and they can do Xanadu events immediately, if one chooses. The Lacquer Helm's
 kinda junky but hey, better than a potion or nothing.

SAMMARKAND SKYDOCKS     [WK25]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 After the sailor-slaying event, everyone disembarks into the stopgap town on
 the Sammarkand continent. Isa suggests heading to the northern capital of
 Xanadu immediately, but if you do that now, you'll miss out on some stuff.
 This continent has three actual cities:

 • North : Xanadu, the capital and actual destination
 • Middle: Suilei, the next destination in chronological order
 • South : Ponsu, a hot springs town with nothing important there...for now

 If you got the Palace Pass, you can head straight to Xanadu (technically) and
 start events there, but you'd be skipping two town's worth of awesome stuff.
 Remember that Muck Maguses (magi?) still appear on the world map here, so
 have someone with paralysis-proof armor if y'don't want a surprise game over.

PONSU [OPTIONAL]     [WK26]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 To reach Ponsu from the skydocks, simply follow the inner west rim of the
 mountains while going south. The town is located by a lake, so it's not too
 difficult to locate.

 • Golden Key ------- bookshelf in house nearest entrance
 • Blue Potion ------ pot, house nearest entrance
 • Golden Bracelet -- northwestern crate
 • Poison Dart ------ pot, central house
 • 500 GP ----------- barrel, central house
 • Pugnant Bomb ----- hot springs hotel, 2F pot
 • Dadao Blades ----- hot springs hotel, 2F chest

 The Golden Key will open an otherwise impregnable chest in Xanadu, while the
 Dadao Blades are just awesome (free) weapons for Isa -- schwing! Nothing else
 to do here once this poor town's been taken for a ride, though. 

SUILEI              [WK27]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 To reach this city from Ponsu, go north until an eastern break in the range
 allows one to see another coast, where this town's located by. First things
 first: larceny.

 • White Potion --- chest, inn 2F
 • Elixir --------- chest, inn 2F
 • Pugnant Bomb --- barrel, west side of town (by puppet-show guy)
 • 1000 GP -------- SW house, chest obscured by blue screen
 • Gossamer Sash -- SW shop, clothing rack
 • Blue Potion ---- chest, SW importer
 • Ruby Necklace -- chest, SW importer
 • Crystal Shard -- chest, very SW of town, in park
 • White Potion --- barrel, SE side of town
 • Pugnant Bomb --- chest, east side of town
 • Juggler Glove -- chest, central park house
 • Ceramic Helm --- chest, central park

 Done thieving? Good. In the central park, find The Three Frogs entertainer
 group on the left side, talking about their plight -- crazed monsters arrived
 for their performance instead of docile ones. In exchange for helping them,
 they agree to give the team an [Entertainer Pass] to get into Xanadu. Thus,
 the fight with the monsters -- x3 Doomwing Larva -- will start. While this
 mini-skirmish shouldn't be elevated to boss status, it can certainly be hard
 keeping track of three enemies, especially since their stats are hidden to
 start with. Having someone with the Monster Codex accessory can help here for
 recognition's sake. 

 x3 Doomwing Larva  HP: 3000  EXP: 900  GP: 900  STRONG: F,Wa,D  WEAK: E,H
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Attack [single: physical damage]
  • Physica Absorbus [single: drains HP]
  • Nox Ico [small area: dark damage + %Poison]
  • Aira Toxus [line area: wind damage + %Sleep]
  • Fira Dominatus [death counter (single): fire damage]

  While this mini-skirmish shouldn't be elevated to boss status, it can be a
  bit annoying with three enemies to keep track of -- the Monster Codex can
  help on this end. The terrain is horrible for great double techs like Toxus
  Rush, so relying on spells like Aira Toxus (sleep effect is great) to hit en
  masse is very wise in reducing their firepower temporarily. Like the boss
  before, Aurora's lack of great innate healing really leaves her odd man out;
  a team of Kairu/Nym/Isa works very well. Since the enemy often crowds around
  immediately, try to use put the enemy to sleep while bombarding them with
  Judge of Sun and Fury Strike. Remember to tagteam one target before moving
  on, making the going a lot easier. When killed, they use Fira Dominatus on
  whoever dealt the coup de grace, so perhaps pick the killer carefully.

 Winning earns the [Entertainer Pass] to let one get into Xanadu -- assuming
 one didn't get the Palace Pass which would already do that. The final town
 on this continent is far to the north, past the skydocks' latitude. 

XANADU     [WK28]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 At the gate, the guard will only allow admittance into the city if the team
 has a Palace Pass or Entertainer Pass. Got one? Y'get in. It's important to
 know that this is the only time in the game the shops -- [SH14] -- will be
 in the state they're in, so keep that in mind. Other than that, time for some
 breaking and entering:

 • Str Potion ------ inn, 2F chest
 • Blue Potion ----- western house, pot
 • Uji Nut --------- eastern side, barrel
 • Blue Herb ------- southeastern side, barrel
 • White Potion ---- eastern house, chest
 • Crystal Dust ---- eastern house, pot
 • Blue Root ------- eastern house, barrel
 • 400 GP ---------- NE manor, 2F attic pot
 • Cursed Dart ----- NE manor, 2F attic pot
 • Silver Claymore - NE manor, 2F attic pot
 • Elixir ---------- NE mansion, chest (behind blue screen)
 • Iron Net -------- NE mansion, enclosed outdoors barrel
 • Strong Antidote - NE mansion, enclosed outdoors barrel
 • Lucivar Herb ---- pot, item shop
 • Blue Potion ----- NW corner of town, barrel

 With the city wiped clean of its valuables on this festival's eve, approach
 the palace to see a scene with Mondu. When the allies try to enter, they'll
 be let in as well. A [Stone Flower] door prize is given if the team possesses
 both a Palace Pass and Entertainer Pass, note.

 ############################################################################
 MONEY-MAKING TIP: Warlords carry Xanatou swords for Isa, and can be sold for
 GP in town. However, if one sells at the "Wonders of the World" shop, they
 will pay four times the normal amount for them. This includes all items that
 can be sold, actually! Thus, an easy 7000GP profit is made! Selling the free
 Gossamer Sash from Suilei sells for 176000GP, as well.

| 04 | Blue Potion    |  (center), kitcher (NE), barracks (NW) and a couple of
| 05 | Stamina Drink  |  siderooms. Items 1-6 are all in plain sight, except
| 06 | Laced Boots    |  for #2, through a blind passage in the kitchen's
| 07 | Pearl Gauntlet |  storeroom. Finding an "A" path leads to B1, the jail
| 08 | Ceramic Helm   |  cells. See where #7/8 are on the map? A blind alley
| 09 | Jail Guard Key |  leads into that area. Additionally, the team can find
| 10 | Iron Net       |  an incarcerated Rogurd in the cell block, who of 
| 11 | Mondu's Key    |  course wants to be freed. The Cell Key is hanging by
| 12 | Blood Charm    |  the chest nearby, and when he's released, he gives a
| 13 | Crystal Shard  |  [Jail Guard Key] and joins the party permanently. The
| 14 | Elixir         |  JG Key opens the "C" path on F1, leading to the F2
| 15 | Ornate Axe     |  stairway. Oh, and Rogurd comes with his own upgraded
| 16 | Guardian's Key |  items: Silver Axe, Ceramic Helm, Lacquer Armor, Pearl
| 17 | Lacquer Armor  |  Gauntlet.
| 18 | Pearl Gauntlet |
| 19 | Sta Potion     |  F2 is rather unspectacular. The room with the maid
| 20 | Mnd Potion     |  contains a hidden passage with an [Iron Net] inside,
| 21 | Spd Potion     |  while one of the north rooms has a boss fight with
| 22 | Imperial Armor |  everyone's faorite incompetent general. Before that
| 23 | Str Potion     |  though, a secret passage opens into the east storage
| 24 | Int Potion     |  area, and the stairway leads down to items #13/14.
|____|________________|  Now, go see what's going on with Mondu...

 BOSS: Mondu  HP: 4000  EXP: 400  GP: 400  TYPE: Human  STRONG/WEAK: ---
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Attack [single: phys damage]
  • Blue Potion [self: heals 250 HP]
  • Acid Bomb [single: Adds DEF Down]
  • Torch [single: phys damage + %Flaming]
  • Power Slam [single: phys damage + %Paralysis]
  • Crescent Smash [local area: physical damage, 2-hit; about 66 damage]

  Basically the same as the very first fight, except Mondu can get triple-
  -teamed. This time 'round, people like Nym can take over one-fourth his HP
  off with skills, so this should register as a -1 on the difficulty scale.

 With his tail between his legs, the boss flees and drops [Mondu's Key] which
 allows the team to reach F3. Before that, though, that treasure chest in the
 office can be robbed for a [Blood Charm], provided the team got the golden
 key from the bookshelf in Ponsu. When done, up to F3!

 Here, the barracks nearby have an [Ornate Axe] for Rogurd, but the other
 rooms don't have much. Make way to the southeast Guardian's Room, and heal
 up before taking the [Guardian's Key], which triggers a battle...

 BOSS: Celesta  HP: 7000  STRONG: Dark  WEAK: Fire/Holy  EXP: 1140  GP: 1040
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Attack [single: physical damage]
  • Fira Dominatus [single: fire damage]
  • Nox Ico [small area: dark damage + %Poison]
  • Minions! To Me! [global: summons 3 Pet Bats]

  The final Guardian appears with three Pet Bats [500 HP]. Whereas Yuei had
  an ambush and Isai had instant death attacks, Celesta really has no ace up
  her sleeve, besides being able to summon her fallen bats back into battle.
  Without any multi-target abilities, this battle should be a cakewalk. [Can
  steal a Majai Spear].

 With the Guardian's Key obtained, the 4F stair is accessible. 

 BOSS: Vai  HP: 17000  EXP: ----  GP: ----  STRONG/WEAK: ----
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Carve [single: physical damage (4-hit)]
  • Lunge [single: physical damage + %Cripple]

  Kairu faces Vai alone and, not surprisingly, he's meant to lose. Don't waste
  a bunch of resources going against the flow, because with the boss' strength
  he quickly puts the player on the defensive.

 Following the fight, the castle turns into an acid trip and maneuvering is a
 bit harder. The destination is the castle roof where the personal airship of
 Zhe is kept. To find it, head downstairs the way y'came ("G"), then go up the
 other stairway in the SW corner ("F"). There are some items up here plus two
 guards, unless y'came here previously and pillaged. Upon locating the castle
 vehicle, everyone escapes and Xanadu Castle events finally close.

 This dungeon can be a little annoying, since some of its paths loop, but it's
 rather simple once y'know the layout. Kairu starts at the save/heal point and
 has to go from there.

 1) Exit south into the next screen
 2) Exit north from there; the path will now be different.
 3) In the east section, get Items #1/2, then head northeast; exit
 4) New screen! Go north to get Item #3, then backtrack and go west
 5) The northeastern paths can lead down to Item #4, west of some barrels
 6) With Item #4 gotten, backtrack west and go southeast to that exit

 At this point Kairu ends up by the level exit and can go to the world map!
 South through the mountain pass is the next town...

DRAKUS TAT     [WK31]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Upon entering, move towards the center to find some Dragons badgering the
 subjugated Bulmen race. Of course Kairu will have to stand up for them, and
 does battle with the duo (x2 Dragon Warlord; 4000 HP). Luckily, being in his
 current state, there's little way to lose. After meeting Abraxus, the next
 destination is set: Forbidden's Fortress in the NE. But, there's some stuff
 to do before trekking through the mountains:

 • Blue Potion ----- hidden in SE corner of hidden basement
 • 700 GP ---------- barrel, one of the western houses]
 • Drakus Potion --- NE corner of town
 • Curse Juju ------ Dragon Mansion, Collector's room
 • Rebel Tricorn --- Dragon Mansion secret room
 • Drakus Potion --- Dragon Mansion secret room
 • Drakus Potion --- Dragon Mansion secret room
 • Poison Sword ---- Dragon Mansion secret room

 The aformentioned secret room is hidden in plain sight. In town, head to the
 exterior of the mansion and see that one side has a bunch of crates stacked
 in stairlike fashion. It's possible to hop up here to get the three items,
 and the Poison Sword isn't even buyable! The Dragon-run shops won't sell to
 spirits though, so there'll be nothing else to do here. [You can visit The
 Collector in the mansion and give him the Zeion Glove, but this can be put
 off for later -- he'll just be taking the item and giving no reward for now
 anyway.]

 So, the Forbidden's Fortress is NE of town. Giddyup.

 NOTE: Some people have trouble with this dungeon, and it relates to unlocking
 the front door from the north (interior) side. If you try to exit the dungeon
 without having unlocked the front door, y'may get stuck. Thus, defeat the
 gate guard for the key and unlock it, then proceed with normal spelunking.

| 07 | Drakus Potion   |  after his demise. However, the fortress is very
| 08 | Serpent Tongue  |  labyrinthine and it's possible to miss a lot of
| 09 | Str Potion      |  things. The quickest way to get everything is to:
| 10 | Incubus Skull   |  
| 11 | Crystal Dust    |  1) Go around back and get Treasures #8/13/14/15
| 12 | Oppa Oil        |  2) Go to front and fall through pit trap "A"
| 13 | Swift Boots     |  3) Get Treasures #9/10/#12, and work towards #11
| 14 | Drakus Potion   |  4) Go through locked door (*) from north (only way)
| 15 | Mask of Despair |  5) Start working west, getting remaining treasures,
|  * | Locked Door     |     #2-7. 
|____|_________________|
                          If you choose to do this another way, prepare for a
 very annoying time with even more backtracking. The good thing is that none
 of these treasures are hidden; most are just on out-of-reach ledges or areas.
 Eventually make way to the "BOSS" room in the east...

THE BLACK RIFT
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The POV switches over to the rest of the allies, ready to go after Kairu.
 The team will be Nym and a 2nd ally, strongly suggested to be a magic-user
 like Isa/Aurora. Inspect Kairu's body to be taken to the Eerie Caves. At
 this point, the team must retrace Kairu's own steps, out of the caves, and
 to Drakus Tat. Talk to the two Bulmen dressed in blue near the west side of
 town for some Abraxus scenes, in which Nym learns how to remove forcefields
 erected in ancient times. [NOTE: If Rogurd is with, he can obtain a Ghost
 Mace from a Dragon shopkeeper in the northern building.]

 Return to Forbidden's Fortress and prepare to deal with three more Dragon
 Warlords; after, make way to the boss room.

 BOSS: Drakis  HP: 8000   EXP: 1400  GP: 1350  STRONG/WEAK: Nothing
 BOSS: Kipher  HP: 12000  EXP: ----  GP: ----  STRONG/WEAK: Nothing
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • [K] Drakus Potion [self: heals 500 HP]
  • [K] Dark Breath [medium area: fire damage]
  • [K] Dragonstrike [single: physical damage]
  • [K] Triplestrike [single: physical damage, 3-hit]
  • [D] Staggering Blow [single: physical damage + %SPD Down]

  The bosses typically only use physical attacks, so the difficulty redlines
  pretty hard. Dark Breath can do about 100 damage to those in range but has
  infrequent use, so besides tagteaming targets, there's little strategy.

 Immediately afterward...

 BOSS: GhostEye  HP: 50000  EXP: ----  GP: ---- STRONG: All   WEAK: ---
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Chronos [all: dark damage + %SPD Down]
  • Uro [small area: earth damage + %SPD Down]
  • Touch of Death [single: physical damage + %Poison]

  Another unwinnable, so don't waste resources. 

 Afterwards, everyone's in the real world and the airship is in their control.
 As Abraxus suggested awhile ago, heading to House of White Stone in order to
 reach Abraxus Tower should be the next destination.

OPTIONAL THINGS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 With the airship obtained, there's actually a lot of stuff to do. I'll
 expound on a few below.

 • Temple of Lucivar ------> get Lucivar summon
 • Tida's Reef ------------> and get Tida summon
 • House of Black Stone ---> Get summon on B1 level
 • Tradefair --------------> Explore Rogurd's house / Finish Neet quest
 • Pelpo Pelo -------------> Visit town on southeastern island

TRADEFAIR     [OPTIONAL]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 • Blue Root --------------> kitchen barrel
 • Uji Nut ----------------> dining room urn
 • Oppa Oil ---------------> living room urn
 • Blue Root --------------> 2F urn
 • Leather Gauntlet -------> 2F chest
 • Chain Mail -------------> 2F chest
 • Stamina Drink ----------> 2F chest
 • Mind Drink -------------> 2F chest 
 • Acid Bomb --------------> 2F chest
 • Elixir -----------------> 2F chest
 • Restore Oil ------------> 2F chest
 • White Potion -----------> 2F chest
 • 500 GP -----------------> Fine Clothier chest

PELPO PELO     [OPTIONAL]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 • Blue Potion ------------> barrel near entrance
 • Totem ------------------> barrel in vacant house
 • Crystal Dust -----------> crate by pub
 • White Potion -----------> pub chest
 • Str Potion -------------> pub chest
 • Ice Bomb ---------------> barrel by pub beach

 Don't forget about the pub brawlers that can be fought!

HOUSE OF WHITE STONE     [WK32]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 More of an elevator than a dungeon, the House of White Stone is one of the
 last remaining unexplored places in the known world. On the minimap, it's a
 purple dot on the island east of Apogea Tower, on the north section within a
 huge forest. Landing on the southern plains and walking there is the only way
 to continue, unfortunately.

 Within, Nym can put his forcefield-abolishing abilities to use, and get some
 items as well: White Potion, Sinful Eye, Gaia Ring, Earth Ward. Additionally,
 since Nym is required to get through, he can pickup the Uro summon (sparkle)
 in the foyer. The back elevator connects to the Corridor of Clouds 2F, which
 starts right by the forcefield-guarded Abraxus Tower, a little to the north.
 [NOTE: The locked east door at the tower base leads to the Doll Factory, an
 optional place we'll visit in a little while.]

| 01 | Sky Arm         |  F1: Head north until the "B" stairway is visible,
| 02 | Restore Oil     |      but go NW instead to the "A" stair room. The
| 03 | Mnd Potion      |      [Sky Arm] and [Restore Oil] are found in some
| 04 | Hero Drink      |      assorted crates/bottles here. Go downwards...
| 05 | Flash Sabers    |
| 06 | Silver Claw     |  B1: Maneuver to the end room, containing a computer
| 07 | Elixir          |      console. There are three options: (1) give it
| 08 | Elixir          |      magical power (2) press random buttons (3) kick
| 09 | White Potion    |      it! The latter two just force the player to pick
| 10 | Majai Armlet    |      the 1st option, which drains 25% of _all_ allies'
| 11 | Starspirit Robe |      SP to regain functionality to F2's "D" teleport.
| 12 | Starspirit Robe |      That's also the floor we're headed to!
| 13 | Sta Potion      |
| 14 | Sealing Orb     |  F2: The "D" stairway is in the NW, but get the [Mnd
|____|_________________|      Potion] and [Hero Drink] in the southern hidden
                              path first.

 F3: Get the [Flash Sabers] in the east dead-end passage, then take the south
     corridor to a large chamber. Turn on the computer and a short game of
     "Simon" will play. If you're unfamiliar with the concept, it requires a
     player to repeat a colored sequence to open the teleport. There are six
     inputs to enter, with one being added each step. I believe it's random
     in nature, but just for the heck of it, here's the sequence I had (with
     the orbs labelled 1-5, going clockwise, starting at top): 4,5,4,3,1,4.
     Successful completion opens up the next teleport.

 F4: Items #6-8 are in the rooms around here, with #8 being accessible through
     a blind west wall. The "F" teleport is in the north, by going counter-
     -clockwise from the "E" teleport.

 F5: The three shining monoliths by the deactivated "G" teleport lead to three
     seperate battles with two Devils; the teleport reactivates when all are
     fought. They have 5000 HP overall and counter attacks with Glacius, so
     be aware.

 F6: Get the [White Potion] and go west to "I", flip the computer on, go back
     to F6, then go south to the newly-created bridge, leading down to #10,
     a [Majai Armlet]. Up to "H" now.

 F7:  Go down the catwalk to the room with a skeleton, who suggests that there
      is an alternate way out (current exit loops). Inspect the forefront of
      the central pillar to make a new stairway appear, leading to the exit.

 F8: Inspect the computer for a question prompt: long path or short path? Each
     leads to an item unique to that path and both paths can be traversed, as
     long as y'backtrack to the starting warp and use the computer to change
     'em. Both paths have a [Starspirit Robe] to get, and since it reduces SP
     costs, it's worth going through both routes to obtain. Both corridors'll
     lead to the "M" warp though.

 F9: Now for an RPG mainstay: the dark maze! Kairu can only see a little in
     all directions, making maneuvering around rather confusing, so it'll be
     wise to use the ASCII map above. 

 On F10, save and look behind the bookcase to find the F11 boss...

 BOSS: Statue x3  HP: 5000  EXP: 2800  GP: 2000  STRONG: ????
 BOSS: Statue     HP: 7000  EXP: ----  GP: ----  STRONG: ????
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Freeze [single: %Freeze]
  • Flamma [single: fire damage]
  • Whisperwind [single: %Confusion]
  • Glacius [single: water damage + %Freeze]
  • Aira Toxus [single: wind damage + %Sleep]
  • Attack [single, long-range: physical attack]
  • Head Throw [single, long-range: physical damage]
  • Curo Aira [counter (all enemies): heals HP; used by SW boss]
  • Tempest Glacius [death-counter (all allies): water damage; used by NE boss]

  Although a 4-on-3 is a little unfair, the bosses will typically strike with
  single-target attacks, so bunching together is fine for healing purposes.
  While tag-teaming is the obvious strategy, make sure to (1) avoid the SW
  Statue since it counters by healing all enemies (2) heal up before killing
  the NE Statue, as its death-counter is Tempest Glacius. Each statue has a
  different elemental strength, so using the Monster Codex (or Appraise, if
  you're using Rogurd) to check that out is helpful. When the SW Statue's the
  only remaining boss, use summons and powerful dual techs in order to bring
  it down with minimal HP regeneration. [Targets have no items to steal.]
  
 Before heading off to Isapolis, inspect the NW corner of the boss room to
 find another secret passage, leading to the [Sealing Orb], then teleport back
 to the lobby. Now, Isapolis won't appear on the map, but it's definitely
 there -- off the SW coast of the north-central continent. The very miniscule
 island it's at _can_ be landed on, but it's kinda hard. Try to drop down while
 being a little east of center.

 The Doll Factory is located at the base of Abraxus Tower, on the right-hand
 side where a magically-sealed door is. Nephi is required to open it, so start
 the Isapolis section [WK35], get him, then do this one. The passage through
 House of White Stone must be the route, like before, and Nephi must be in
 the active party as pointman.

                          direction, getting the first three items in or around
 the savepoint room. One door is guarded by an Ur-Guardian, once a boss from
 Ring of Memories, now a rather easy boss to defeat with double techs aplenty.
 The door it guards leads to a secret character's room, named Doll. He gets
 his skills from special equipment found around the world, rather than getting
 them through higher levels. Out of here, go south to the "A" elevator, get
 Items #4/5, and move to the eastern room. Turn on the computer here with the
 high-tech part, making any functional computers activate.

 Back to F1, the computer nearest the entrance can open the locked door right
 beside it. Get Items #6/7 before jumping on the conveyor belt, which will
 lead to a mandatory Ur-Guardian battle (this happens each time you go through
 that spot, for reference). The belt eventually spits Kairu out near items 8 &
 9, plus the remaining locked door -- jiggle the handle and it'll remain open.

 Finally, jump back on the conveyor belt a 3rd time to reach B1. Collect the
 10th item and go south through the hidden wall, to the 11th item, [Searing
 Blades] for Isa. The "C" warp will allow the player to start backtracking out
 of this dump, after. That's all there is to do here!

 At the entrance, the team find Nephi, who will stop his disappearing act and
 finally join permanently. He comes with Knives Shards, Silk Hat, Mooncloth
 Robe, and a Golden Bracelet. Velcome to...Isapolis. Mwaha-ha-ha...*cough*

 ############################################################################
 NOTE: With Nephi in the party, the team can get the first optional character
 in the Doll Factory dungeon. See the preceding section for details. Is there
 a reason to get him now instead of going through Isapolis? Yes -- an item
 that halves SP consumption. Forewarning, y'all.
 ############################################################################

MAIN HALL
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The main hall is where it all begins and connects -- there is an elevator in
 the north that is out of order. To make it function, all of the elemental
 seals in the dungeon must be successfully be traversed to the end, where a
 teleport will warp everyone to a lever. A lever gives 25% to the elevator and,
 well, y'see where this is going. Collect items #1/2 and go to the "B" warp,
 which leads to...

THE WATER SEAL
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This watery area has a lot of teleports. Make way to the "D" teleport to
 collect the [Pugnant Bomb], then take "E" onwards. A little ways down the
 path, "G" and "H" will lead to an [Adventurer's Hat] and a lever, lowering a
 ladder on the "F" path. Take that way, "I" warp to the 1st elevator lever,
 backtrack, get the [Firelay], and return to the SW corner. The brown warp
 ("J") leads to...

THE EARTH SEAL
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Go north one screen and then to the west wall, where a hidden passage leads
 to a [Lotus Circlet] headband for the ladies. Take the "K" stairway nearby
 down one level, then down the "N" stairway, leading to the "P" warp. "Q" will
 lead to the 2nd elevator lever, then warp down. There are two spots around
 the "Q" warp where Kairu can jump down, and by taking the western of the two,
 he lands right by an [Evasion Charm]! Drop down and take the green warp ("S")  
 to...

THE WIND SEAL
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Left of the entrance, hit the lever to reveal the parlor trick: there are two
 tiers to the level, each with invisible paths. The lever's involvement makes
 them alternate flashing so the player has a general idea of where to go. But,
 this minor inconvenience masks what is one of the easier floors. The "T"
 path leads to a [Restore Oil], while the "U" path to items #12-14, including
 the awesome [Midnight Sword]. The "Z" path leads to the 3rd elevator switch,
 while back in the wind seal room, the arrow will shoot Kairu south to the
 "a" warp. [NOTE: On the map, I ran out of capital letters so this begins the
 lowercase series.]

THE FIRE SEAL 
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Near the entrance warps, spy the [Magic Bracelet] half-hidden nearby. It's
 #24 on the map, if only 'cause I missed it the first time -- oops.

 In the lava room, get item #15 and go counterclockwise to a switch, draining
 the lava in the room. This allows Kairu to get item #16, and a semi-obscured
 SW path leads to Item #19. There's also a secret west wall passage that will
 teleport Kairu to the wind seal room, to get Items #17 & 18. Back in the lava
 room, make for the NE corner where Kairu can teleport to the 4th and final
 elevator switch. To return to the starting area (gray on map), go back to the
 warp zone and take the "A" path. The elevator in question is in the north
 section, and the flashing parts on the ground (x4) should be giving power to
 the elevator. If one direction isn't, one seal lever wasn't flipped! Take the
 lift to F2...

THE LIGHT/DARK SEALS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 These seals are paltry "puzzles" compared to the other two. Light is in the
 west, Dark in the east. Each is basically a small path leading to a shrine
 where Kairu must turn on a beacon, and each has an [Elixir] to find en route.
 When both shrines are activated, the elevator can reach the top floor.

TOP FLOOR
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Save north of the elevator and continue to the final room. Before approaching
 the boss, make sure to collect the [Glowing Spheres] chest from the west side
 of the room!

  • Hex [single: inflicts a lot of status effects]
  • Ball Lightning [single: wind damage + %Paralysis]
  • Lunge [single (sometimes skill counter): physical damage + %Cripple]

  Vai typically opens with Celes Mistis but doesn't use it again, instead
  choosing Lunge, HP/SP absorbing skkills, and some normal elemental types.
  He's not that hard in this state if y'harness the power of double techs
  (i.e. Southcross Slash can do 3000+) while the ability to heal everyone en
  masse. 

 On the way out of the maze, through a different route than usual, collect the
 final treasure, a [Mind Drink] before exiting. At this point, the world gets
 all buggaboo and the fellowship of the ring...err, orb is forcefully divided.

 The party members are now all around the world, not unlike FFVI, and they'll
 have to do their own things until regrouping. Luckily, most allies come in
 pairs so there'll be no stickin' it out alone.

PART 1: Drakus Tat
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 First up is Aurora and Nephi, who land right on the outskirts of the Dragon
 town. Once in the city limits, and a few scenes later, Nephi can wander
 around the mansion. If you got the Unnamed Glove from the Doll Factory, now's
 a good time to trade it at The Collector's for the [Ixion Glove], which has
 the same exact stats except it makes physical attacks long-range, if they're
 not already. To continue, enter the throneroom and grab the official-looking
 guy to assist in Aurora's interrogation. Following, town can be explored a
 bit -- of particular interest is being able to use the northern dragon shop
 [SH18] which snubbed Kairu last visit. Anyway, equip some SP/HP-curing items
 on Nephi and try to leave town...

  • Drakus Potion [self: cures HP]
  • Attack [single: physical damage]
  • Dark Breath [small area: dark damage]
  • Dragonstrike [single: physical damage]
  • Antidote [counter (self): cures poison]
  • Are you ready to die? [single: does nothing]
  • Triplestrike [single: physical damage, 3-hit]

  Nephi fights this lunkhead alone, and luckily, his bag of tricks is full of
  simpleton moves (it's also full of something else, if y'get my drift). The
  pit in the middle provides a good buffer zone, and constantly being on the
  other side as the boss forces him to waste time moving close. Attack-wise,
  Backstab is the best bet since the boss isn't immune to paralysis. On the
  flipside, having some HP/SP-refilling items can act as a safety net in case
  Physica Absorbus can't be used. Overall, not too hard with a little fore-
  -thought. He'll use Triplestrike when almost dead so keep HP up a bit at all
  times.

 This ends the first split portion.

PART 2: Pelpo Pelo
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This portion concerns Nym and Rogurd, washed up on a deserted island...well,
 it does have Pelpo Pelo on it. This ends up being probably the most annoying
 of the character-centric sections, so once in town, be sure to buy some HP &
 SP-refilling items for the journey ahead. Rogurd suggests heading to the pub
 but before that, feel free to do the farming minigame in the north and earn
 a [Gaia Glove], part of Drakus Tat's "The Collector" sidequest. Also, if you
 want a great weapon for Rogurd, steal one from Brute Demons outside of town
 -- it drains HP! [NOTE: when fighting undead monsters, it heals them and
 hurts Rogurd.] They also sell for 9000GP/per, so if you need cash, that's a
 good way to go too.

 When ready to continue, visit the pub to find Gavin looking for companions
 in his latest search for "IT". Rogurd uses his merchant skills to parlay the
 situation into one with wages and the chance for treasure, though. Speak to
 Gavin when ready to continue -- buy some HP/SP-recovery items before doing
 this, though. [You can go back to Pelpo Pelo if need be.]

 To start, go north and flip both levers, and when the team falls through the
 floor on the way back (B1), return via the "A" path and continue on via the
 opened door. At this point, it's a good idea to avoid flipping random levers
 and just trying to get by. Some skeleton enemies appear on the field -- these
 fights can't be run away from! Also, random battles with two Lost Explorers
 can't be fled from either, so always keep HP/SP in decent condition!

 Down the hallways, come to the L-shaped corridor with two pillars -- there's
 a hidden west passage leading to [20000 GP], so don't miss it! A large room
 with elevated platforms is found adjacent to this passage. Gavin will
 suggest flipping the north switch which floods skeleton enemies into the
 room. It's quite possible to reach the destination -- the SW lever -- without
 fighting a bunch of little-EXP, little-GP generics. Four potion-type foes're
 around here too. The SW lever opens the north door and leads down to B1.

 A little ways in, Gavin and the team will split up, and then a tiny race'll
 begin: go south to the door before Gavin while avoiding obvious spike grids.
 Said unscrupulous treasure-seeker will then run off ahead, stealing items
 as the team gets to the "C" path. However, a [Coral Mace] is left for Rogurd
 to use.

 Down on B2, it'll be a "Lady or the Tiger" situation, except the tiger is
 actually an un-flee-able skeleton-type battle. There are four items to get
 here -- #s 6-9 -- before finding the stair. At B3, simply follow the way to
 the bottom, to a room with a booby-trapped pot. Hitting the button lets some
 monsters in, and scares Gavin away from the [Iron Helmet] chest in the room
 next door, which is a pretty crappy "gift". North, the northern switch is the
 right one to make the bridge, and from there, it's easy to reach the save/heal
 spot. North is the start of the 5:00 mad dash to final room, kinda like a
 shoddy Indiana Jones movie.

THE RACE
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Although this is an event, know that if you don't reach the final room in
 5:00 (300 secs) then the course must be done again, so there's no time to
 dawdle, generally. I'll just list the rooms as they come:

  1: SPIKE ROOM: there's a correct way through the spikes, which pop up to
     prevent the team from reaching the north door. Not too hard overall.

  2: PROJECTILE ROOM: Both walls spit projectiles across the path, and if
     any land, they temporarily stun the pointman and send him back a bit. Not
     too hard, like the previous room.

  3: PROJECTILE ROOM II: Like the previous room, except these wall-spit rocks
     are incoming, so the chance of them hitting is typically 100%. A nook
     here and there allows for dodging, but the path isn't _that_ long, so it
     becomes a minor annoyance.

  4: SKELETON ROOM: The catwalks over the abyss have skeletons on them, and
     of course, by running into them un-flee-able Lost Explorer battles are
     fought. Getting through is annoying as it is, but going for that pesky
     [Gem Claw] chest really eats up the clock, tacking on about 2-3 extra
     battles. If you want to run out the clock to get the item, though, that
     can be fine. 

  5: BOULDER COURSE: There is one item to get in this course, the [Ocean's Arm]
     special equipment for the secret character Doll, who should've been gotten
     already. To get it, go down the first stretch of the course on the west
     side, outrunning the boulder; then, switch to the east side to get the
     item. Touching a boulder will force a reset on the course, which will be
     necessary since the boulders block the way down. To successfully exit,
     go down the west side for the 2nd stretch as well.

  6: HIP-HOP COURSE: No, this isn't where one hones their freestyle skills --
     it's where the team must jump across stepping stones (which fall after
     one time) to reach the final door. There's an [Elixir] in the west but
     forget it if time's almost up.

 After all that work, heal up HP/SP and proceed down the corridor to...

 BOSS: GhostEye  HP: 18000  EXP: 1700  GP: 1500  STRONG/WEAK: ---
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Chronos [all: dark damage + %SPD Down]
  • Uro [small area: earth damage + %SPD Down]
  • Judge of Sun [single: fire damage + %Blind]
  • Touch of Death [single: physical damage + %Poison]
  • Power Drain [single: phys damage; Ghosteye regains 8xDMG as SP]
  • Minion! Come forth! [global: summons Tropic Nightmare into battle]

  Before this guy was nigh invincible; now he's a lot more manageable. It'll
  help to use the double-tech "Renova Huma" to give everyone HP regeneration,
  since the boss still has some decent abilities. If a Tropic Nightmare gets
  summoned, focus on that first, since its lamebrain abilities can inflict
  some annoying statuses, most notably Berserk. As long as one keeps HP up,
  the boss' summoning abilities don't pack that much of a punch -- even that
  dang Chronos can do double-digit damage. Make sure to steal the [Ashen Robe]
  from him, since it's the only one in the game (I believe).

 After some scenes, the [Rift Key] is obtained. Section over!
 
PART 3: Polamaze Temple     [WK38]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 ENEMIES: Doll, Doomwing Larva, Guard Mine, Pulverizer, Cloud Drake, Solar El.
 ITEMS  : Crystal Dust, Dawning Whip, Sorceror Dome, Vigor Talisman

 Now to Kairu and Isa, whose airship has crashed at Polamaze's temple -- it's
 time for descendin'. Their part is probably the shortest of all mandatory
 portions, so there won't be a map. Everyone starts atop the tower; search
 the south-central side for some hoverpads leading downward. Use these to
 get inside the tower and start the descent -- the chests along the way are
 all in plain sight, so make sure to get them, the Sorceror Dome in particular.
 On the 2nd exterior portion, race downwards to fight four Dragon Warlords,
 serving as a warmup to...

 BOSS: Drakis  HP: 8000  EXP: 400  GP: 350  STRONG/WEAK: ---
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Attack [single: physical damage]

  Nothing about this battle should be tough at all, except for the fact that
  after fighting so many battles in a bunch, one's HP/SP values are probably
  not maxed out. Take care of that first and dole out appropriate punishment.

 After, approach the temple base's door to return to the village, then speak
 with Isa outside. Everyone disperses, so feel free to rest in one of the
 north houses. Items around town:

 • Crystal Shard --> Pot in left cliff house
 • Lucivar Herb ---> barrel between two cliff houses
 • Magician Glove -> chest in one of the cliff houses
 • Lucivar Herb ---> chest in riverside house

 DO NOT APPROACH THE TEMPLE at this time, as it may glitch and repeat the
 Dragon invasion section once again. Instead, head to the east side of town
 and go into the forest section past the town Guardian. Here, go a little east
 and south to find a pond where everyone meets Juji. After some talk, this
 section is O-V-E-R.

PART 4: ???     [OPTIONAL]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This final section only plays if Doll was obtained before finishing Isapolis.
 Doll awakens in a small cave by himself, and can only go north. Along the way
 is the [Lucivar's Ring] chest, the real reward for getting the secret ally
 as soon as possible -- it halves SP consumption!

GENUFA
ŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 After everyone's sections are concluded, they reunite here. Rogurd suggests
 going back to Tradefair to collect his personal ship, so that's the next part
 of the plan. If you remember the geography of the pre-fusion map, Genufa's
 desert's entrance was southeast of Fort Domfriu, which itself was southeast
 of Tradefair's region -- i.e. the destination is practically NW of current
 location. However, Fort Domfriu has been destroyed in favor of a huge lake,
 which now takes up most of once-Cytherian plains. Going counterclockwise will
 lead to the Cytherian bridge. [To get to the world map, talk to the guy by
 Ring of Memories' entrance and choose to go to Melmoth Entrance.]

CYTHERIAN BRIDGE
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The barracks here have been turned into an inn now, so use the facilities if
 needed. While going across, there's a mandatory boss battle.
 
 BOSS: Body Armor    HP: 15000  EXP: 1900  GP: 1900  STRONG: ------  WEAK: Wa/D
 BOSS: Deep Monster  HP: 16000  EXP: ----  GP: ----  STRONG: Wa/F/E  WEAK: ---
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • [DM] Flood [all: water damage]
  • [DM] Curo Aira [all foes: cures HP]
  • [DM] Attack [single (long-range): physical damage]
  • [BA] Power Drain [single: damage target; recover 8xDMG PP] 

  Pretty easy battle overall, especially if the healer has Lucivar's Ring.
  The Body Armor should be the first target to go down, since it's weak to
  water and darkness -- dual techs like Southcross Slash can do 5000+, making
  it succumb without too much trouble. Since it takes up the west part of the
  battlefield, some techs like Storm Slash, won't work. Sometimes the boss'll
  cure itself so make sure to strike hard with single blows instead of lightly
  with multiple.

 After battle, the [Sigil Necklace] -- formerly known as Isa's Necklace -- is
 found on the bridge. This is the first piece of the armament set, and part of
 a sidequest involving the collection of them all, plus the 8th secret ally.

TRADEFAIR
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The ship Rogurd's talking about is at his personal docks, NW of his mansion.
 There are a few other things to do here before leaving though:
 
 • Also, if you haven't gotten the [Golden Crown] chest in the slum pub, now's
   a pretty good time. Rogurd must be in the party to make the thieves (2 First
   Mates) leave...forcably. Their Tetanos Knife attack paralyzes so guard
   against that and things'll be rather simple. 

 • The art shop on the west side of town sells the [Sigil Helm] for 100,000GP
   but if Rogurd's with, he can haggle it down to a fifth of the price (20K).
   This is the best outcome, of course.

 • Sleeping in Rogurd's 2F bed with the master of the house in the party will
   kickstard the "Rogurd's Dream" sidequest, in which he revisits the nearby
   Cascadillas for a secret passage. The reward: the Glacier mace. 

 • After getting the boat, re-enter Tradefair and there should be a scene
   where Kairu's delivered a letter. This starts the "Shy Maiden" sidequest
   where one can get the Sigil Blade.

 The Polamaze continent is south of Tradefair, as an ally reiterates. However,
 there's a lot of sidequesty stuff to do as well -- it's slightly harder with
 a boat instead of an airship, but in pursuit of listing things at their
 earliest points...

 This tricky place is made up of two screens: a large dungeon area and a tiny
 basement where the boss is. At the start, head south and get the [Worm Tail],
 then go north to the [Desert Armor]. A little to the east, head south and
 down to the [Training Sword] chest -- it's possible to go east under a road
 here to an isolated duo, [White Potion] and [Wisdom Rune]. To get back on
 track, go east from the Desert Armor's cliff.

 Now, go northward and when the splits and continue east, getting the great
 [Shining Glove] -- part of the elemental glove sidequest -- and then the
 north, to the [Stamina Drink] seen previously. Finally, reach the center of
 the map and enter the basement. One room in, the path fragments into tinier
 antechambers: get the [Harvester] and [Stone Flower], then check a skeleton
 for a [10000 GP] wallet-booster. The large door leads to...

  the weakest, but also the magic-caster. The Left Arm should go next, since
  it's the healer. Double techs are the quick way to severing the boss'

  mind before accidentally curing them 5000+!

 To find said caves, one must first locate Ponsu, the southernmost town on
 what used to be the Xanadu continent. It's in roughly the same location, but
 the landmass changes now allow one to dock where once there was mountains.
 So, go to the NE quadrant and find a beach, then walk to the town nearby. Go
 through the defunct spa building to the springs themselves, and find the kid
 on the east side -- a stair's formed, going down towards the volcano. Hooray!

| 10 | Crimson Tail    |  to start (no HP damage). At the final room with the
|____|_________________|  stairway down, inspect the NW corner for a blind
                          wall leading to the acclaimed [Blazing Glove], part
 of the elemental set the Drakus Tat collector wants. The "C" stair is next.

 In this tiny room, toss the boulder onto the lava geyser and go up the "E"
 lift to a [Blazed Eye] accessory. Backtrack by jumping down the lift's ledge
 and take "D" along to a previous chamber. Between "F" and "G" stairs, take
 the latter, as it puts one closer to the [Lost Left Blade] and [Elixir]
 chests. Said blade is part of a forging sidequest for Isa so pocket that
 sucker and don't let it go. This chamber's lava is similar to a previous
 room's in that there are clear stop/go times, but now the chamber's larger
 and the pointman must seek refuge on parts that rise above the lava. This
 isn't that hard, but it can be annoying where positioning's concerned. Item
 #6 is here, but besides that, make for the "G" stairway. There should be no
 more trouble reaching the boss room.

 Lucky for the player, the "boss room" has a spirit whale instead of an angry
 boss to fight. Inspect its west side to be given some options: put it out of
 its misery or don't. The former turns it into a [Life Sphere] item, while the
 latter earns Nym a dual tech with Rogurd. So which option to pick? The latter
 of course! This is the only chance to get this ability and a Life Sphere can
 be earned from another sidequest. When the decision's made, warp out. Too
 bad Ponsu's bath are broken 'cause y'probably worked up a sweat...

 NOTE: There may be a glitch that prevents one from getting the dual tech!

 ENEMIES: Dark Flame, Ghoul, Reaper, Efreet, Scurvy Dog

 This dungeon is part of a sidequest and has a little preamble before actually
 going there. First, visit Gavin's house on what used to be the Apogea landmass
 (center of map, NW side) and check in to find...he's gone. Read the note on
 the barrel by the door to learn he's in search of Firebeard's loot, and that
 the pirate's descendants have the other part of the map. Back on the boat,
 go in an easterly direction -- following the coast -- and happen upon a
 beach right by a cave. This leads to the Pirate Village, which should now be
 unguarded. Loot the town for: [Black Silk Robe], [Gossamer Sash], [Sun Gem], 
 [2500GP], [Star Shard], [Evasion Charm], [3000 GP], [Iron Net], and [Cursed
 Dart]. The central house has a pirate who says everyone went to Firebeard's
 Tomb, on a deserted island south of the Genufan desert.

FIREBEARD'S TOMB
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 There are a few mandatory battles with pirates before finding G-...err, Ravin
 with the main pirate group. [You may want to kill the dumb pirates, save, and
 then go back in.]

 [Assassin Daggers] chest for Nephi. Continue down to the tunnel to find the
 final resting place of...

  • Flamma [single: fire damage]
  • Shock Slash [single: physical damage]
  • Flamma Orbis [medium area: fire damage]
  • Arch Fira [large area: fire damage; used in critical HP]

  Pretty un-stellar boss fight, with ol' Firebeard having no tricks up his
  sleeve besides Possession -- charmed allies can do most of the damage here.
  When he's almost dead, Firebeard will use Arch Fira a few times back to
  back, so make sure to be spread out to increase the survival rate. Also,
  make sure to leave battle in good shape SP-wise as well... 

 ...because as soon as the battle concludes, some of the pirates from before
 attack (x2 First Mate, x2 Scurvy Dog). Coming in with poor health/SP can
 spell disaster, laughably. Be sure to take out the low-HP enemies first or
 their Shock Slashes can nickel-and-dime stragglers.

 With all the events done, all that's left to do is leave. However, Gavin
 throws the team a bone in the form of a [Life Sphere] accessory. Eventually
 we'll have to return here for Nephi/Nym's final combo, but for now, hit the
 dusty trail!

 NOTE: Return to Gavin's House to get [Antique Hands] and a [Behemoth Guard]
       as proper thanks. Also return to the Pirate Village and collect the
       remaining items: [Cursed Pendant], [White Potion], [Rising Sun], and
       [Silver Ring].

XANADU CASTLE [II]     [WK42]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Xanadu Castle is landlocked by mountains, so the only way to reach it is by
 going north from the coast near Ponsu. All that remains of the town now is
 the castle, repurposed into a brutal arena: the Devil's Ring. The reason we
 came here is to get the [Sigil Armor]! Talk with V. Jean and pay the 2000GP
 fee for the Team Battle, then win four battles and opt out -- the armor is
 obtained as the consolation prize. For reference:

 1) x3 Lieutenant, x1 Ronin
 2) x5 Gargaril
 3) x4 Brawler, x1 Dread Lord
 4) x1 Muck Magus, x1 Grease Magus, x1 Magma, x1 Slush Magus

 Here, get item #5, the [Strength Wrist], and take the "A" tunnel nearby to
 find a small pool containing the [Saint's Arm] for Doll. Cross to the west
 side ("B") and go south to the next stairway down. In the river are, get
 Items #7-9 over the natural bridge, then at waterside, go west to Item #6.
 The stairway is accessible by going east from there, leading down to a watery
 descent. Get the [Majai Tiara] in plain sight and look for an overhang that
 obscures a path to the final item, a [Crystal.] 

 From there, the two final paths in Isapolis Ruins can be accessed. Although
 it's not included on the map, the [Glowing Spheres] in the final room's NW
 corner are still there, if missed previously. Find Vai here and everyone'll
 return to Genufa; this is where he'll stay. If y'followed the walkthrough,
 all Armaments should have been collected and the option to recruit him will
 now be open! [If you don't have all Armaments this can't be done.]

44) Polamaze Temple / Seramaze Temple                                    [WK44] 
_______________________________________________________________________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 With all the sidequests out of the way, it's time to return to the mandatory
 stuff, namely the return visit to Polamaze Temple. In case you've forgotten
 its location, its on the SW continent, near the west side. The boat can get
 pretty close to it, so don't settle for a long walk. Through the tiny forest
 -- which has a [Seal of Power] in a NE crate -- is Polamaze Village. Talk
 with Giles and the team will decide to split in twain: one team taking on
 the local temple mount and the other going to Seramaze. This operation will
 be done concurrently so be sure to prepare accordingly, as there's no going
 back or party-switching until everything's over. [Having healers in each
 group is wise.] For reference, my teams:

 - Polamaze: Kairu, Isa, Nym, Doll
 - Seramaze: Aurora, Vai, Rogurd, Nephi

SERAMAZE TEMPLE
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 ENEMIES: Regal Doll, Eliminator, Pulverizor, Guard Mine

 The first (top) floor of the temple has free party-switching, so tweak the
 lineup before descending. Now, for puzzle-solving here, there will be a lot
 of LIGHT REFLECTING, in that a beam of light is directed around by mirrors.
 Trial and error's fine, but if y'don't want to waste a bunch of time, here's
 the correct method to go through.

 B1: Get [Restore Oil] in W, hit S switch
 B2: Hit S switch and NE switch, get [Onyx Helm]; reset S switch, flip W switch
 B3: Get [Masked Dome] in W, hit W switch; hit S & NE switches; reset S

 From here, go north and find the ladder down to B4; however, the east wall has
 a hidden [Majai Robe] in a false wall. Downstairs, find everything in order...
 except a boss is blocking the light beam!

 BOSS: Guard Monolith  HP: 25000  EXP: 1500  GP: 1500  STRONG: Fire  WEAK: ---
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Tempest Glacius [all: ice damage]
  • Arch Fira [large area: fire damage]
  • Celes Igneus [all: holy damage + %Blind]
  • Sacrifice [single: kills self; damage = remaining HP]
  • Charging fire attack! [global: will use Arch Fira next turn]
  • Charging holy attack! [global: will use Celes Igneus next turn]
  • Charging ice attack! [global: will use Tempest Glacius next turn]

  Spreading out is important for avoiding all the large AoE attacks, while
  preparing for Tempest Glacius/Celes Igneus in the meantime. If there's no
  healers other than Aurora present, things can get a bit hectic -- having
  someone like Doll (heal everyone) or Nephi (heal self) can lighten the load
  a smidge. The attack pattern is fire > ice > holy before it repeats, so make
  good use of that knowledge. And if y'die, at least prepare better elemental
  defense for the 2nd time around. Try to deal a quick coup de grace at the
  end though, or someone may be hit with Sacrifice and end up losing out on
  the EXP!

 Approach the lit-up monolith and the POV will change over to the other team
 at...

POLAMAZE TEMPLE
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 ENEMIES: Regal Doll, Eliminator, Pulverizor, Guard Mine

 Unlike the other temple, this one's light-reflecting mirrors are already in
 place, so there's no puzzle-solving to do. The starting room still serves as
 the party-swap point, so harness it if needed. Starting point is F5, though
 there seems to be a labelling problem, so just use my order instead of the
 game's. [NOTE: The out-of-reach areas seen were traversed on the 1st descent
 of the temple and cannot be reached again, nor can their treasures.]

 F5: Go down
 F4: Keep going down
 F3: In NW room, get [Half-Moons]; in NE room, go south to exit
 F2: Save here, climb north ladder to [Crystal]; return to boss!

 BOSS: Defense Monolith  HP: 25000  EXP: 1500  GP: 1500  STRONG: Wind  WEAK: -
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Tornadus [medium area: wind damage]
  • Terra Captus [medium area: earth damage]
  • Lonely Death [small area: darkness damage]
  • Charging Wind Attack! [next turn will use Tornadus]
  • Sacrifice [single: kills self; damage = remaining HP]
  • Charging Earth Attack! [next turn will use Terra Captus]
  • Charging Darkness Attack! [next turn will use Lonely Death]

  This battle is a joke, and the boss packs none of the overbearing punch the
  previous monolith did, mostly because none of its abilities can hit everyone.
  Spread out and use double-techs and put this sad excuse for a baddie out of
  its misery. [Attack order: darkness > earth > wind]  It will use Sacrifice
  on its deathbed though, so that can still rain on yer parade.

 Approach the monolith for a scene and the POV switches back to Aurora's
 team, who now gets the privelege of walking back to the temple's summit. On
 the way back to Polamaze though, there's an attack by Cytherian brigands!
 There's really nothing special about fighting them and the Guardian -- they're
 just oversized enemies really -- but it's possible to steal a [Guardian Wrist]
 from the main baddie.

 When the POV switches back to Isa's team, save and exit the way y'came in.
 There'll be a few more fights with Cyth Rangers and a Guardian Trooper. This
 battle's the same as the one on the boat except there's less at stake if one
 loses, and it's another chance to steal a Guardian Wrist! Isa will learn her
 final technique (Phantom Slash) during these events also.

 Finally, everyone rejoins and on the map, the continent of Bel Lenora will
 appear in the NW corner. However, it has no beaches so one must acquire other
 transportation. Before leaving, one of the houses has a key that can be used
 to open a chest in Bel Lenora -- you may remember an unlockable chest near
 the start of the game. Yup, that's the one.

 Cythere is, of course, east of Tradefair, and the boat can cosy up next to
 a nice proximity, thanks to the northern inlet. If we came here before, the
 front portcullis would've been locked...but now it's flung open! However, all
 places are locked so the castle's the only destination. Kill two Guardian
 Troopers at the front gate and break into the west wing's armory (with a
 sentry stationed outside). Talk with the king to get the -- what else? --
 [King's Key] for the 2F throneroom. Inside said chamber...

 BOSS: Kaar  HP: 25000  EXP: 6720  SP: 4720  S/W: ---  DROPS: Kaar's Robe
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Tornadus [small area: wind damage]
  • Attack [physical damage, long-range]
  • Poison Dart [single: damage + %Poison]
  • Crush Wave [medium area: physical damage]
  • Flamma [single (damage counter): fire damage]
  • Phantom Slash [single: physical damage, 4-hit]
  • Ball Lightning [single: wind damage + %Paralysis]
  • Celes Igneus [death counter (all): holy damage + %Blind]

  Rocks-for-brains is accompanied by two Guardian Troopers, who should be the
  first ones removed as they're the weakest (Uro Strike can 2-shot 'em). Just
  remember that they cast the potential instakill ability Diabolus as a death
  counter, so make sure everyone can revive and stay apart. That spell is the
  main obstacle here -- Kaar himself is rather paltry for a majai and uses a
  bunch of junk spells. Oddly enough, he knows Isa's final ability (Phantom
  Slash) as well, which precedes the "Come here, you coward!" insult. If y'can
  manage it, Freeze Kaar in one area and move to the opposite one, out of his
  range. This tactic worked on Mondu during a sidequest and works well here as
  well. Overall, just use powerful double techs like Uro Strike (5000+ DMG)
  and this doofus will be worm feed soon. [Can steal a Revenge Ring]

 Cythere will now be liberated, which means a few things are now doable:

 • Get [Paragon Ring] in throneroom chest -- Vai must be with to open it
 • Can now forge Lost Left/Right Blades at town smithy to make [Lost Samurais]
 • Can now buy...well, items again!

ARKAL SKYBASE RUINS / RALBANIA CASTLE     [WK46]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Arkal Skybase is in, well, ruins. It's still located on the north-central
 continent, east of the Strange Caves, and a short walk from the beach. Once
 here, loop around to the north portion (where the boarding platform used to
 be) and help out Lukas as he fights some magus type enemies. Well, YOU will
 do all the fighting, of course, but afterwards...

 BOSS: Horror Leg   HP: 7000   EXP: ----  GP: ----  STRONG: ---  WEAK: Holy
 BOSS: Horror Hand  HP: 8000   EXP: ----  GP: ----  STRONG: ---  WEAK: Holy

  • [HH] Curo Fira [single: heals HP]
  • [HB] Flamma Orbis [medium area: fire damage]
  • [HL] Aira Toxus [line: wind damage + %Sleep]
  • [HH] Ram Force [counter (single): physical damage]
  • [HB] Power Drain [single: damage target; drains DMGx8 as SP]
  • [HH] Arch Fira [death counter (large area): fire damage + %Flaming]
  • [HL] Terra Captus [death counter (large area): earth damage + %SPD Down]

  Another three-part boss: the body, the real part do defeat, and a leg/arm to
  use healing abilities or offensive magic. By this knowledge, defeat the Leg
  first to get most of the annoying abilities off the table, then defeat the
  Hand from afar to avoid its Ram Force counters. The body goes last. The
  real difficulty results from HP/SP values being what they were in the battle
  before, so take a while to get into gear before launching the main assualt.
  [Can steal Spd Potion from boss.]

 Now Lukas will be able to fix the Airship but suggests lounging a bit at the
 nearby Ralbania Castle, which we couldn't enter first time through. Make sure
 to get the [Justice Chains] by the huge stairway though. At the castle, some
 rabble -- 5 skeleton types -- is trying to get inside. Items within:

 • [Frenzy] in a guest room
 • [Vigor Talisman] in a guest room
 • [Spidersilk Cap] in a guest room
 • [Ebony Daggers] in the King's Bedroom
 • [Windom Armlet] in the King's Bedroom (secret west room; may require Rogurd)

 Talk with the king in the 2F throneroom for some scenes, and it'll be time to
 return to Lukas to get the skyship. Buy a Paladin Sword before leaving as it
 is necessary to do the final step of the armor-creating sidequest. Also, the
 [Sun's Arm] part for Doll is hidden on the skybase: north wall, east side.

 This is doable after the Firebeard's Tomb quest. 

 1) Visit Rogurd's Mansion in Tradefair to find it's been robbed
 2) Visit Gavin's House to find it, too, has been robbed
 3) Ravin's Mansion on the cape west of Gavin's House
 
 Make sure Rogurd's in the party first, or else the front sentries won't fight
 everyone. With that, enter the dining hall nearby and get the Food Tray. The
 hallway nearby has a locked door, openable by lighting the unlit candlestick
 on the wall. [A guard nearby can be paid 500GP for this info.] Upstairs,
 go to the SW barracks to overhear someone has the Floor Key -- it's the guy
 sleeping in the NW room. With this and the food tray, Kairu can get past the
 two guards in the east and get to 3F.

 ############################################################################
 NOTE: If you visit Rogurd's mother at this time, the game may freeze! If it
 doesn't freeze, congratulations! Inspect the bookshelf twice to get the 'BAD
 DEED' hint and get the two items north of there through the fake east wall.
 ############################################################################

 On 3F, get the [Cursed Mail] from the black urn and enter the maze where
 Ravin's pet hound attacks the team. Going through the maze to get items is
 pretty easy, but also make sure to go to the SW corner and fall through to 2F,
 where Kairu can get the [Sorceror's Hat]. Backtrack to the maze's north exit.
 If you got the 'BAD DEED' hint already, play the piano to open the [Gold Ring]
 locked room near the interior entrance. The NE room goes to...

 BOSS: Ravin  HP: 40000  EXP: 3800  GP: 5900  S/W: ---  STEAL: Relica
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Hypnotic Lore [single: %Charm]
  • Shock Slash [single: physical attack]
  • Haunting Perfume [small area: %Sleep]
  • Dash Strike [single: physical attack]
  • Hero Drink [Add: DEF+, MDEF+, ATK+, MATK+]
  • Herbalist Lore! Superb Healing! [heals self]
  • Commander Lore! To me, my guards! [global: summons x2 Gang Member]

  Ravin uses a bunch of skills and is susceptible to Cripple, which can stop
  him from using some of his techs. The Hero Drink makes his DEF nearly
  perfect, but wears off eventually. Rely on double techs and cure Charm if
  it gets on anyone, and Ravin shouldn't be too much of a trouble. Make sure
  to steal the Relica though, as it's Rogurd's ultimate weapon and it's the
  only way to get it. 

 At this time, leaving the mansion is all y'have to do, provided you got all
 the items. If you didn't, revisit Rogurd's mom's room and have her leave.

 ############################################################################
 NOTE: There is ANOTHER glitch here where if you try to leave the room, there
 is an invisible "locked door" that prevents it, and seems to be impassable.
 ############################################################################

 Leaving the mansion will have it disappear from the map, so make sure
 everything's done. Considering how much of a glitch factory it is, getting
 out while y'still can may be the best decision... When all's said and done,
 visit Gavin's house to get a [Meridian Crown] as a reward.

 This place can be annoying with all the icy slopes and such, so let's walk
 the path of least resistance. In the first room is a chest (#6) but blocked
 by some cracked ice. Instead, go down the left passage and loop around the
 long way to collect the [Godwrath], Nym's ultimate weapon. At this point the
 way down is (1) through the west slope by Item #7 (2) down the A path in the
 first room. Either way leads to an item but note that both items suck and to
 get both, the entire dungeon process coming up will have to be done over. I
 just choose to skip crap like the Torch myself.

 Now, the "A" path leads to Item #8 nearby and the east slide goes down by
 where the "C" path deposits its rider, near a [Frost Glove]. Continue NW to
 the frozen pond, where if one doesn't traverse it ever-so-carefully, the
 team is dropped by a worthless [Ice Bomb] chest. North from there is a small
 maze of slopes and ladders, although getting all items -- the [Gold Ring],
 [Sun Gem], and [Hero Drink] -- are pretty easy. The NW ladder leads back up
 to the first floor and one can exit at that point. Or, go back through to get
 Item #7 or #8, whichever was left previously.

 NOTE: If you've followed this walkthrough, y'should have collected all of
 the elemental gloves and can trade them in (at Drakus Tat) for the [Element
 Glove], which has the combined effects of all the gloves!

49) AIR MEGAERA     [OPTIONAL]  [WK49]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 ENEMIES: Dragon Warlord, Dracoknight, Dragon Master

 This floating Dragon city is the easternmost orange dot on the map, located
 high above a mountain range. Of course, this will be a Nephi-centric quest,
 and soon after landing, he sets off with his "slave" Aurora and Nym to do
 some things on his own. After waiting a bit, the rest of the team can explore
 town. The shops [SH26] aren't that good overall, and there's only a single
 item -- a [Drakus Potion] in the medicine shop -- to find laying around.

 To continue with the real stuff, approach the palace gates and be rebuffed.
 Back in town, will be some scenes with the Bulman Nykal. Rest up in the bed-
 -room before approaching the castle once more...this time with forced entry.
 Get a x2 [Drakus Potion]s in the kitchen and climb up to 2F, and keep scaling
 ladders until reaching Nephi's room, where the team rejoins. Make sure to
 snag the [Magna Daggers] by the bedside before leaving, and save if needed.
 This time, go down one ladder, enter the west door, arc east, and go up that
 side's ladders to reach the top. [There's another Drakus Potion en route and
 Royal Armor in Rhys' room, too.]

 BOSS: Dragon Rhys  HP: 30000  EXP: 4000  GP: 4000  STRONG: Wi,E  WEAK: ----
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Dragon Song [single: %Charm]
  • Terrible Roar [small area: physical damage]
  • Dragon's Breath [all: dark damage + %Poison]
  • Rhys' wounds heal rapidly! [heals a lot of HP]

  The boss starts off in HP Regen status but it eventually subsides -- however
  it returns periodically. The boss' best attack is Dragon's Breath but with
  so much elemental resistance available, it really isn't that hard to stomach
  (about 100dmg to all). Stay back to avoid the Terrible Roar attack and use
  double techs like usual...not too hard. [Drop: Draconic Bangle]

 Afterwards, get the [Sunray] and [Moon Orb] items in the throneroom. There's
 nothing else to do in town, I'm afraid.

 ############################################################################
 NOTE: If you return to Firebeard's Tomb (boss area) and talk with the parrot
 there, he'll want some power to revert to his previous form. Give him Rhys'
 Dragon essence and Nym/Nephi learn their final combo "Dark Lord!"
 ############################################################################

ZODIAT MONASTERY     [OPTIONAL]  [WK50]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The only place on the Bel Lenora continent we didn't go to is this place,
 landlocked in the northwest and accessible only by airship. 

 • Int Potion ------> chest, top floor
 • Star Shard ------> chest, top floor
 • Acid Bomb -------> chest, top floor
 • Mystic Hands ----> 2F pot (west side)
 • Crystal Shard ---> F1 chest (east side)
 • Mystic Hands ----> F1 chest (east side) -- yes, again!
 • Magician Glove --> F1 chest (east side)
 • Mind Drink ------> F1 chest (east side) 

 The real reason to come here is the secret summon, Chronos. To find it,
 enter the central staircase on the first floor to arrive at a mezzanine with
 two shelves. Inspect the left to find a button and open a hidden door, where
 the summon lends its power to Nym. Additionally, a [Hand of Time] & [Moon Orb]
 on some skeletons. 

51) SPIRIT TEMPLE / BEL LENORA     [OPTIONAL]  [WK51]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The Spirit Temple segment is easy: inspect the crystal and the priest will
 donate it to the team's cause. The [Zodiat Crystal] gives the biggest SP
 augmentation of all!

 NOTE: If you do the Curse Bringers Tower segment before Bel Lenora, then no
 monsters will be there anymore -- a head's-up in case y'wanna skip this part.

 Okay, in Bel Lenora, enter the residential district to find everyone is
 fighting ghouls (Possessors, Thrawls). Help out the soldiers and slay them
 all (x8 battles), which makes town return to normal fast. After this, feel
 free to explore town to get items forgotten previously, and do the final step
 in the armor-making sidequest at the inventor's. Also, the "Private Residence"
 in the south of town can be now be explored. Although the concierge says that
 the team can't go in, it's possible -- try one stairway to get the signal to
 leave, then go down the opposite stair! However, one side simply has a sheep
 named Bunbun and the other has a guy who mentions Zodiat Monastery...but no
 items... Finally, a residence's ancient chest can be unlocked with the key
 obtained in Polamaze Village, earning a [Mushroom Ring] for the trouble.

 But that ain't all. A guard used to prevent access to the palace's teleports,
 but now they can be explored as well. The leftmost teleport leads to the
 general's mansion, and a storeroom there has a White Potion, 300GP, and a
 Restore Oil; additionally, a secret entrance in that storeroom leads to the
 general's most prized treasure, a [Meteor] weapon for Nephi. Upstairs is a
 [Stone Flower] chest.

 The rightmost teleport leads to Vai's mansion, which has been picked clean
 by scavengers and privateers over the years (no rhyme intended!) However,
 his room on 2F has a hidden passage behind a bookshelf, leading to one of
 the very few rapiers in the game, the [Death Song], plus a [Valiant Armor]
 and [Mushroom Ring]. Vai doesn't need to be with for these events.

 The middle teleport leads to the palace ruins, the only part of town still
 infested with enemies (those fought previously). Some items still lay in
 the debris: a [Gold Ring], [Int Potion], [Princess Gown], and [Cursed Mask].
 However, there is a secret here so easy to miss, it's insane. Did you ever
 read a book about Zodiat's Tomb? It's underneath the castle! The entrance is
 cleverly masked in the ruins' NW side, east of the ornate statue. Down the
 hidden stairway, in the room just before the blank altar, a hidden west path
 leads to the real treasury. It's guarded though...

 BOSS: Dread Skull  HP: 35000  EXP: 6000  GP: 6000  STRONG: E,D  WEAK: F,H
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Lunge [single: physical damage + %Cripple]
  • Glacius [small area: water damage + %Freeze]
  • Attack [single, long-range: physical damage]
  • Fira Dominatus [single: fire damage + %Flaming]
  • Draintouch [single: physical damage + HP Drain effect (x11 amount?)]

  Nothing interesting at all about this boss, although Lunge can do 100+ and
  that may count for something. Basically, it can kill someone if you're not
  paying attention, while Draintouch does a little HP-curing for good measure.
  Double-techin' it will put it on the fast track to extinction though.

 With Zodiat's blessing, the rest of the items can be obtained: [Zodiat Hands],
 [Black Infinity], [Star Orb], and [Zodiat's Blades].

 Upon entering, Kairu and Aurora are forced into the rescue party, with the
 3rd ally up to the player. Either way, get everything on the ground floor
 and use "A" to reach 1F; here, take the B/D/E teleports to arrive in the
 basement, for the sole purpose of getting Vai's [Monarch] weapon. A lot of
 teleports will lead back to the basement, including those the player tries
 to backtrack down! Return to 1F and take the teleports in this order: C >
 H > J (Savepoint) > M. The team should arrive at the 7F where the Duke's in
 trouble...

 BOSS: Master  HP: 23000  EXP: 3400  GP: 3400  S/W: ---  DROPS: War Dome
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Diabolus [medium area: %Death]
  • Flash Beam [vert line: holy damage + %Paralysis]
  • Dragon Power [small area: Add: SPD/ATK/DEF/MATK/MDEF+]
  • Touch of Binding [single: physical damage + %Paralysis?]

  Master is accompanied by two Curse Bringers, rather annoying in their own
  right, so take them out first of all -- combos with a decent AoE, such as
  Nym/Kairu's Tida, works well on this end. Weakening them en masse is just
  good all-around strategy. The main boss' HP is hardly anything to write
  home about, but stay away from him anyway since he does use Diabolus every
  once in awhile. [Nothing to steal.]

 Afterwards, everyone returns to Averay Mansion for the duke to convalesce.
 See "Averay's Slumber" sidequest for the rest of this info. You can also get
 the items in the mansion's armory if not done already.

 ############################################################################
 NOTE: If you're wondering if there's a 6F while playing, there is -- it's
 just skipped in the natural order. The lower teleporter on 5F will take the
 team to the [Inferno Ring] on 6F.

 Before starting, I suggest:

 - Buying 'x' amount of Grapple Gloves for your physical fighers
 - Buying 'x' amount of Black Silk Robes (great elemental DEF)
 - Buying 'x' amount of healing items, Totems, SP-refilling things, etc.
 - Perhaps steal Paragon Rings from 'Fish Lord' on SW icy island (snow plains)

 To reach the Dimension Flux, go through the Cursed Caves like before and the
 team will arrive there. This is the "point of no return" in general, although
 there are a few warps that will let everyone leave, so no worries! There's no
 savepoint until pretty far into the D-Flux though, so save in the C-Caves!

 To start, climb up the vine and inspect the sparkle to fight a boss. Haha...

 BOSS: Wall Monster  HP: 35000  EXP: 3000  GP: 3000  S/W: ---
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Hex [small area: %random abnormalities]
  • Provoke [phys counter (single): %Berserk]
  • Flash Beam [vert line: holy damage + %Paralysis]

  Although the boss designs have been kicked up a notch (wow, a bloody
  sternum!) this is the type of boss the team can dispatch in their sleep. 
  Spread out so that Flash Beam and Hex can only hit one person at a time, and
  focus on skills since it counters with Provoke (this doesn't apply if y'have
  status prevention). 

 Enter the new door to find oneself in the 'Outer South' portion of the Flux.
 Go east to an isolated [Str Potion], then west to the "B" entrance to Inner
 South, where there's a hidden switch to push that allows one to get a chest
 later on. Exit and go west again, to the 'Outer West' area. There's a NW
 exit here that leads to items #6 and #7, although the latter is cloaked in a
 blind wall passage. Backtrack a bit and go to the 'Inner West' area, to reach
 the [Drakus Potion] in the only way possible. Back outside, trek north and
 reach the...well, 'Outer North' area -- after the maze, inspect the gnarled
 tree root and go north to an optional boss...

 BOSS: Magna Kipher  HP: 29000  EXP: 5000  GP: 5000  DROPS: Sphere of Ages
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Blade of Shadows [single: %Paralysis]
  • Dragon's Breath [All: dark damage + %Poison]

  This optional boss is another "gimme," offering little challenge like most
  of the those as of late. Dragon's Breath can now affect all allies, and
  when in critical health, he will use "Triplebreath" which, as it sounds,
  uses his breath move three times consecutively. Just stay healed or defeat
  him swiftly and it'll all be over 'fore y'know it. [nothing to steal]

 With this goofball obliterated, go back to the tree root area and arc around
 counterclockwise to the [Sta Potion]; then, south! An [Ice Bomb] will be
 laying right along the mesh footpath, which culminates in the 'Outer East'
 area. There's an [Onyx Helm] hidden near the southern orange-colored spot,
 and a [Moon Orb] is in plain sight to the east. Additionally, there's a hidden
 path leading to a [Black Cowl], near the top of the eastern stairs by treasure
 #5 (inspect north wall to find).

 However, the "C" exit is the correct way to go, and leads a ways into the
 interior. It's straightforward, so don't worry about getting lost. Save here
 and go south a bit, which is where the next section picks up.

          Possessor, Pest Spirit

 Pest Spirits will use 'True Hex' to inflict a lot of status effects on allies
 within range, and fleeing is impossible when berserked, so have someone with
 a Cryptic Signet/Vigil Ring in the party(s)! Berserk eventually wears off,
 for reference. Also, Vai's ultimate weapon "Apocalypse" is a drop off the
 Irredeemable enemies (susceptible to instant death, by the way).

 So you got to the savepoint area, huh? South of there, the team will decide
 to split up. Choose the teams wisely as they won't be able to rejoin until
 both paths are done (i.e. put healers in both parties). Exit north of the
 starting room to regroup, if needed. Now, for the walkthrough's purpose,
 the teams will be "Kairu's Group" and "Other Group," abbreviated by their
 initials. [Use select button to switch between groups.] After getting past
 the first two switches, the real dungeon-crawling will begin.

 KG: Collect Items #1/2 and move to the east switch

 OG: Go south across bridge KG team made and get item #3, then go back across
     to NE door. Options: north door, SE door. Take former and get item #4,
     then go latter. Continue along to the room with the pillar of light,
     which leads back to the Cursed Caves. Ignore it if unneeded. Continue
     north to the first set of pipes! Crawl in and go westward, and that way
     deposits the team back in the pillar room by the [Dark Reign] chest (it's
     Nephi's ultimate weapon). 

     Return to the pipe maze room and go east, to the weird hole in the ground
     that lets one get near the [Hero Drink] chest. This'll be a common sight
     so keep it in mind. There's a hidden pipe passage that goes through the
     east wall into the Outer East section, to a [Str Potion], as well. Find
     the path that goes NE in the maze room -- there's two ways and either's
     fine.

 BOSS: Cerberus  HP: 25000  EXP: 600  GP: 600  STRONG: Wind  WEAK: Fire, Holy
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Nox Protego [self: %DEF+]
  • Frostbite [single: ice damage + %Freeze]
  • Nox Ico [small area: dark damage + %Poison]
  • Arch Fira [large area: fire damage + %Flaming]

  A palette swap of the Dread Skull miniboss, this foe's molded in the exact
  same manner (he's undead, so watch out for HP- or SP-draining effects which
  will harm the user). Also, it's susceptible to instant death skills such as
  Diabolus, which makes dispatching it rather easy. 

 OG: After the boss fight, continue to the 'Inner North' area and step on a
     gray floor switch, which changes the route for Kairu's team. Switch the
     POVs back to them as well, since this way's kaput for now.

 KG: Exit NE to the 'Outer West' area, which is half-flooded with murky water.
     Go through the first hole-tunnel thing ("B") and get a [Lucivar Herb].
     Ride either of the two tunnels nearby and then the "E" path, and...well,
     it's pretty straightforward from there on. Toward the NE corner of the
     place, there's another switch to step on which drains the water. With
     this done, find the western stairway leading down into the once-watery
     pit. Collect items #8/9 and enter the NE doorway, which leads to a light
     pillar (leads back to Cursed Caves like before) and the boss at the end
     of the way, another Cerberus. 

     Past there, three pipes! [This can't be displayed properly on the map
     due to constrictions.] At the bottom is a useless [Copper Charm], while
     the eastern of the three has a midway landing that allows one to go east.
     Step on the rock switch to make the nearby walkway pull a 90-degree turn,
     leading into the 'Inner North' room where Aurora's team should already be
     waiting. There are three north doors to take: pick the eastmost, leading
     to a rock switch that connects the path to Aurora's side again.

 OG: Take the left of the 3 doors and arc clockwise to return to the previous
     room, only one now has access to the lower parts. Get the [Majai Tiara]
     in a room -- again, the ASCII map doesn't describe this well 'nough --
     and backtrack a bit, going north to a floor switch which bridges a gap
     to the east (in sight).

 KG: Backtrack to the three doors and go middle, across the newly-constructed
     bridge. To the west, a rock switch which lowers a defunct tunnel thing
     on the OG path. East, get the [Black Silk Robe] and take the pipe south,
     until reaching the screen marked "???". Step on the rock switch there and
     throw control over.

 OG: This team should still be standing on a northern switch. Go west past
     where the barrier used to be and find the pipe going south. There's a
     hidden west passage here that leads to a [Meridian Crown], so snag that
     sucker before continuing the right way, to the dead-end rock switch.

 At this point, if both parties are on the rock switches, two parallel paths
 will form. Take each team south to the final set of rock switches, which'll
 connect the paths (the teams rejoin) and connects to the start of the area,
 in case y'wanna backtrack and explore some. When ready, go north, between
 the parallel paths, to a savepoint and the way down. Of course, before the
 final stretch, one can fight that red boss at the north end of the parallel
 paths.

 BOSS: Infernalia  HP: 35000  EXP: 3500  GP: 4500  S/W: ---  DROPS: Fallen
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Diabolus [medium area: dark damage + %Death]
  • Flame Punch [single: physical damage + %Flaming]
  • Flamma Orbis [small area: fire damage + %Flaming]
     
  Another standard boss without any harsh attacks; in fact, the fire-based
  shtick makes him a one-trick pony. Just watch out for Diabolus and things'll
  be peachy. [Steal: Seal of Infinity]

 So, y'know where to go: in the room past the savepoint and downward.

 ############################################################################
 NOTE: Kairu's final weapon can be obtained around this point. After getting
 the "Fallen" sword, backtrack to a light pillar and return to the Cursed
 Caves; and, from there, have the Cythere smithy reforge the weapon into its
 best form. The D-Flux puzzles will not reset or anything, so a long walk
 back because a reasonably short one.

|ŻŻŻŻ|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|  This final part is rather easy and straightforward,
| 01 | Strings of Fate |  so a play-by-play ain't necessary. The first item to
| 02 | Totem           |  be found is Aurora's [Strings of Fate] whip, her
| 03 | Gem Claw        |  ultimate weapon. The next-lowest tier has a [Totem],
| 04 | Onyx Wargear    |  and the tier after that has a [Gem Claw] and [Onyx
|____|_________________|  Wargear]. The final boss can still be semi-difficult
                          so to avoid any nonsense, consider returning to the
 last savepoint and continuing on from there. The fifth and final screen will
 lead to the final boss! For reference, my ending equipment/team:

 KAIRU                    ISA                      NYM
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ  ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ  ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 - Infinity               - Zodiat's Blades        - Godwrath
 - Organic Helm           - Sorceror's Hat         - Incubus Skull
 - Onyx Wargear           - Princess Gown          - Black Silk Robe
 - Grapple Glove          - Element Glove          - Grapple Glove
 - Seal of Infinity       - Paragon Ring           - Paragon Ring

 There's a ton of ways to proceed, so don't take this team as gospel. However,
 having Paragon Rings/Grapple Gloves can help survival rates. Oh, and don't
 forget to equip HP/SP-refilling & revivification items, if y'would. [Or, if
 you're using Aurora, make sure she can't be instadeath'd and just have her
 revive people.] Since this is the final battle, make sure to equip those
 rarities that heal the party for 350 SP, cure everyone, etc. -- it's not like
 there's any other time you'll use 'em.

 NOTE: Before continuing to the final boss, there's supposedly a miniboss fight
       with Forbidden first (which makes sense in the context of battle), but
       this fight was skipped entirely when I played. Just a head's up.

 BOSS: Forbidden Heart  HP: 75000  STRONG: Wind, Earth   WEAK: ----
 BOSS: Forbidden Shape  HP: 16000  STRONG: Water, Fire   WEAK: ----
 BOSS: Forbidden Spine  HP: 10000  STRONG: Holy, Dark    WEAK: ----
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  [FHe] Curo Aira [all: heals HP]
  [FSp] Attack [single: physical damage]
  [FSh] Collapse Universe [all: non-elem damage]
  [FSp] Spine Stinger [single: phys damage + %Paralysis]
  [FHe] Parasite [small area: phys damage; gets (DMGx9) as SP]
  [FSh] Grand Curse [all: damage + inflicts random status effects]
  [FSh] Merciless [all: ???]

  The final boss is the Heart, but appears with two adjunct parts: the shape
  and spine. Each of these will serve to annoy the party and, if killed, will
  eventually be revived by the heart. This leaves two options: defeat both the
  mini-bosses before the main boss or go straight for the jugular, generally
  ignoring the other two. Doing it the latter way is rather difficult without
  a heavy offense (Grapple Gloves help with this), while if one's offense is
  so great, then either way isn't that hard. Note that the heart essentially
  has no ability to fight back so without its allies, things aren't that hard.
  A good way to proceed is attacking everything in tandem, either with attacks
  that naturally hit everything (Tempest Glacius, etc.) or combos that can be
  stretched to encompass most of the field (Storm Strike. etc.). For reference,
  when the "heart starts beating faster," that's a harbinger that the cohorts
  will be revived. [No EXP/GP obtained.]

 Enjoy the ending -- it'll change slightly depending on the secret characters
 obtained.

COMBO ATTACKS                                                            [CMBO]

 Combo attacks are used with the 'Combo' button in-battle, and to be used,
 require the two applicable characters to have their action bars filled, the
 requisite SP to use the skills, and be in shape to use them naturally (i.e.
 not silenced/crippled). Combos are learned when both characters have the
 required ability and fight together in battle for awhile after.

 I'd love to tabulate this stuff better but there's just too much to fit into
 a 79-character line, so try to bear with all the abbreviations and such.
 [NOTE: Some of the required skills are guessed at; some aren't obvious, or
 maybe a skill isn't required at all. Hmm...]

 List goes in order of invitation, with overlap cut out. So, the Kairu/Aurora
 combos will be first, but there won't be Aurora/Kairu combos in Aurora's
 section since it'll just be a repeat. [Doll's combos aren't listed as they
 just mimic other allies' skills in all aspects.]

[SQXX] ARMOR MAKING
___________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The first event that can be classified as a sidequest occurs in Bel Lenora,
 very early in the game. In one of the houses, there's an eccentric inventor
 who wants Kairu to assist him in his armor-related experiments. By trading
 some items, the doc will combine them with the armor and make a new item,
 free of charge! There are three steps.

 • STEP #1: Blue Herb + Antidote + Scarecrow ----------> Rusty Armor
 • STEP #2: Rusty Armor + Oppa Oil + Totem ------------> Onyx Armor
 • STEP #3: Onyx Armor + White Potion + Paladin Sword -> Onyx Wargear

 Events have to occur before collecting the items though: (1) fight a few
 battles and return to get the Rusty Armor (2) after being asked to visit
 the Cursed Cave by Lord Averay (3) after revisiting Bel Lenora toward the
 end of the game, collect the final item by re-entering town. Is it worth
 doing this sidequest? Definitely. The Onyx Armor nulls fire damage and that
 should be a fixture on Kairu for quite a long time. The Wargear is one of
 the best armors available and it resists (not prevents) all statuses.

 NOTE: There seems to be a glitch related to this quest. If you don't complete
 step #2 by the time Kairu and Aurora leave for the Cursed Caves, then later
 on, there seems to be no way to complete step #3. You can give the inventor
 the items but he never finishes...there's the rub.

[SQXX] LOST & FOUND
___________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 During the first trip to Bel Lenora, y'may remember a girl in the inn who
 complains about having left her Ruby Necklace in Axunberg. Well, when it
 comes time to visit that town, said jewelry can be found right near the town
 entrance, just a little to the south. Returning the item to her will cause
 her to leave and there's no immediate reward; however, later in the game,
 she will open a shop that sells some decent accessories. 

  - Ruby Necklace [600gp]
  - Jade Necklace [500gp]
  - Silver Ring [400gp]
  - Gold Ring [10000gp]

 If you forget to give her the necklace early in the game, or just think it's
 better in your hands than hers, the sidequest can be completed on the return
 trip to Bel Lenora.

[SQXX] CITIZEN BANE
___________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 In Tradefair, visit one of the northeast houses to find a Sammarkand soldier
 robbing the place in front of its owners. After he leaves, talk with the
 couple and find the thief a little ways NW of there. He'll ask if there's a
 problem -- answer the positive to fight a Lieutenant [1100HP]. Defeating him
 earns 90 EXP & 110GP, plus the old man's [Belongings]. Take them back to the
 geezer in the NE house and receive the reward: 500 GP!

[SQXX] RUNAWAY!
___________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Another ongoing quest found early in the game involves the son of a rich man
 in one of Tradefair's NE houses. Talking to him learns his boy Neet ran off,
 and he wants to know his whereabouts. There are three times this can be done:
 (1) after first coming to Tradefair (2) after getting the Genufan boat for
 the first time, where one has to cut across the Cytherian Bridge to return
 (3) after getting the skyship for the first time. Neet has chacteristic blue
 hair, and that's how he's distinguished from normal NPCs.

 1: Found in the east slums, first house by the entrance. Reward: 750 GP
 2: Found in the lower sewers, in a dead-end room. Reward: 3000 GP
 3: Found behind (west) port pub. Reward: 10000 GP

 Enjoy punching people in the mandibles, or doling out concussions like a
 crazy wizard? Then this section should get yer blood boiling! Throughout the
 game, there are some shady hangouts where brawlers goad people into fighting
 them. Should the team win, they get a prize; should they lose, they'll need
 to be fitted for some coffins. Locations:

 1: Tradefair --- Brawler x3 ----- Reward: Bronze Claw
 2: Pelpo Pelo -- Scurvy Dog x3 -- Reward: Gossamer Sash

[SQXX] DOLL FACTORY TOUR
________________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The Doll Factory is a well-hidden secret dungeon, found at the base (right
 side) of Abraxus Tower, behind a magically-locked door. Nephi is required to
 open the door, which means the earliest this sidequest can be done is toward
 the start of Isapolis -- get Nephi and leave, go to House of White Stone,
 and from there get to Abraxus Tower. [This can be done later on as well.]

 Once inside, Doll is in a NW room guarded by an Ur-Guardian. Simply inspect
 him and he'll join the team. [For more info about Doll Factory, see the
 walkthrough.]

[SQXX] SUMMONED
___________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Unlike the other characters, Nym gets his awesome, overpowered skills by
 finding remnants of spirits and obtaining abilities. Since he's the only one
 who can steal and ends up with some very good skills, it's in one's best
 interest to find these summons as quick as possible (if you want to use Nym
 that is). Here's the order they can first be obtained in:
  _______________ ___________________________________________________________
 | SUMMON        | OBTAIN                                                    |
 |ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|
 | Muus          | Default                                                   |
 | Judge of Sun  | Ring of Memories: find 4 gray books and unseal F1 spirit  |
*| Tida          | Tida's Reef: traverse dungeon and find near the end       |
 | Lucivar       | Temple of Lucivar: walk into beam of light                |
 | Gojir         | House of Black Stone B1: inspect west-side sparkle        |
*| Dark Lord     | Firebeard's Tomb; from "Dark Lord" parrot (see walkthru)  |
 | Chronos       | Zodiat Monastery (2F): behind secret north bookcase       |
 |_______________|___________________________________________________________|

 Asterisks denote summons used in double techs only. Note that the Spirit
 Beast "summon" obtained at Ponsu's Volcano Caves seems to be glitched and
 doesn't actually give a tech to anyone. [Techs learned in this fashion should
 appear regardless of others learned with the two allies.]

[SQXX] THE COLLECTOR
____________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Located in Drakus Tat's Dragon mansion, "The Collector" is a connoisseur of
 fine goods, gloves in particular. His white whale is the Unnamed Glove, but
 he'll give an reward for the elemental glove set as well. This means that
 unless you plan on getting all in the set, he'll just take your gloves and
 give no reward! Locations of all the gloves:
  ___________________ _______________________________ 
 | ITEM              | LOCATED                       |  NOTE: None of these
 |ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|  items are missable.
 | Zeion Glove       | Melmoth Sands (Melmoth Caves) |
 | Unnamed Glove     | Doll Factory                  |
 | Gaia Glove        | Pelpo Pelo farming minigame   | 
 | Hurricane Glove   | Strange Caves                 |
 | Shining Glove     | Desert of Black Sand          |
 | Blazing Glove     | Volcano Caves (Ponsu)         |
 | Frost Glove       | Ice Caves                     |
 |___________________|_______________________________|

 Trading the Unnamed Glove earns the [Ixion Glove], which has the same stats
 and the ability to make short-range physical attacks long-range -- schwing!
 Finding all elemental gloves earns the [Element Glove]. This amazing sucker
 has the combined elemental strength of all the gloves traded for it, plus a
 decent amount of stat boosts...definitely worth getting!

[SQXX] FARMHAND
___________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 In Pelpo Pelo, there is a weed-ridden farm. In exchange for pulling the
 plants, the farmer will give items! Of course, the weeds can fight back in
 the form of battles. The minigame can first be done when the airship's gotten
 (post-Xanadu), and later on, after the worlds have fused. The prize is only
 give out after all (12) weeds are pulled, at which time the minigame can't be
 played anymore.

 1st Reward: Lucky Belt
 2nd Reward: Gaia Glove

[SQXX] 5 (EASY) SIGIL PIECES
____________________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Collecting the mythical Armament set is an optional thing to do in the last
 half of the game. Note that the Sigil Helm can be haggled down to 20K if
 Rogurd's in the party. All armament sidequests can be fully completed before
 doing Polamaze/Seramaze Temples concurrently, note.
  ________________ __________________________________________________________
 | ARMAMENT       | LOCATION                                                 |

 | Sigil Necklace | Dropped by boss at Cytherian Bridge (mandatory)          |
 | Sigil Helm     | Buy for 100K in Tradefair art shop; can haggle to 20K    |
 | Sigil Blade    | Complete Kairu's "Shy Maiden" sidequest                  |
 | Sigil Armor    | Xanadu Team Battle prize: win four rounds and opt out    |
 | Sigil Gauntlet | Dropped by boss at Desert of Black Sand (optional)       |
 |________________|__________________________________________________________|

 This sidequest relates to getting the 8th secret character, Vai, who is down
 in Isapolis' ruins. Before they were isolated, but are now connected to the
 Strange Caves, located a bit west of Arkal Skybase's ruins. Once Vai is found
 he is taken to Genufa to convalesce; the only way to get him in the party is
 to have all five Armaments with. After that, he'll join the team permamently.

[SQXX] ROGURD'S DREAM
_____________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 When everyone goes to Tradefair to get Rogurd's boat, sleep in his mansion
 (with him in the party), and he'll recollect exploring the Cascadillas south
 of town as a child -- and discovering a secret entrance. It's located two
 screens into the dungeon, at the northernmost dead end. Inspect the wall and
 enter inside, 

 BOSS: Mighty Golem  HP: 31000  EXP: 7000  GP: 5000  STRONG/WEAK: ---
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Fist Smash [single: physical damage]
  • Flash Beam [vert line: holy damage + %Paralysis]
  • Roto-Smash [around self: physical damage, including to itself]

  Not a hard battle but it has the highest HP of any boss yet, and Flash Beam
  can do 160+ to a single target. Keep spread out for this reason and try to
  have a healer on standby to avoid any mishaps. Double techs work a lot
  better than single-target ones, although that much may be obvious. [Target
  has no items to steal.]

 The item the boss was guarding is the [Glacier] mace! Also worth noting, the
 wall behind the dais seems fishy to Rogurd, but apparently has no (noticable)
 effect... Hmm...

[SQXX] THE SHY MAIDEN
_____________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 As soon as Rogurd's boat is obtained, re-enter Tradefair for a scene where a
 girl's letter asks Kairu to meet her at Forbidden's Fortress, west of Drakus
 Tat. However, this region is plagued by a mountainous maze so getting around
 can be rather...difficult. Fortunately, there's a quick way to the fortress
 requiring the boat: dock on the NE side of the center continent! You'll know
 y'hit the right spot because the mountain pass is forest-lined. From here,
 work inland (west), then take a south route when able. Once arrived, the
 dungeon has the same progression as before, with the destination being the
 boss room. Make sure to equip Kairu with HP/SP-recovering items before
 entering... [Once inside, Kairu's teammates will have to fight a mediocre
 skeleton-type battle, but then...]

 BOSS: Mondu  HP: 17000  EXP: 3000  GP: 3000  S/W: ---  DROPS: Mondu's Armor
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  • Attack [single: phys damage]
  • Blue Potion [self: heals 250 HP]
  • Acid Bomb [single: Adds DEF Down]
  • Torch [single: phys damage + %Flaming]
  • Power Slam [single: phys damage + %Paralysis]
  • Sword Dance [single: phys damage, 3-hit; about 120 damage]
  • Crescent Smash [local area: physical damage, 2-hit; about 66 damage]

  Mondu is still...Mondu. In fact, he hasn't really changed that much in terms
  of arsenal. However, preparation is still key, as Kairu faces him alone in
  combat. A good tactic is using Glacius to freeze him in place, then using
  long-range moves from far away, out of his skills' range. Our hero should
  be able to do 1000+ per attack, physical attack or physical skill, so this
  shouldn't take too long. Just make sure to heal up in downtime to prep for
  when Mondu unfreezes!

 Winning earns the [Sigil Blade], another Armament piece. Of course, this used
 to be known as the Blade of Averay but now has a huge boost in power. There's
 also a [Spd Potion] hidden in the Nest of Love, east side in a wall nook. The
 team on the way out will be that which fought the five Lost Explorers, with
 Kairu removed, though. Have fun walking back to the ship.................NOT!

[SQXX] AVAST TO FIREBEARD'S TOMB
________________________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 As the name implies, this sidequest centers around a pirate's tomb...but 'fore
 going there, some preamble events must be done:

 1) Visit Gavin's House (NW side, center landmass) and read note by door
 2) Visit Pirate Village (east side, center landmass) and talk with pirate
 3) Head to Firebeard's Tomb, on the island south of Genufan Desert

 The tomb level itself covered in the walkthrough. However, after finishing
 the tomb's events, make sure to visit Gavin at his house to get two extra
 items as thanks: a Behemoth Guard and Antique Hands

 be reforged! So:

 1) Find "Lost Left Blade" in the (Ponsu) Volcano Caves
 2) Find "Lost Right Blade" in the Strange Caves
 3) Liberate Cythere during the course of the story
 4) Forge weapon in SW smithy, exit and re-enter town to obtain

 This is doable after the Firebeard's Tomb quest. 

 1) Visit Rogurd's Mansion in Tradefair to find it's been robbed
 2) Visit Gavin's House to find it, too, has been robbed
 3) Ravin's Mansion on the cape west of Gavin's House

 See the walkthrough (Ravin's Mansion) for the rest of the info.

______________________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The world has a secret shop, each time only accessible by airship. The 1st
 time the airship is obtained, the uncharted island is in the SE of the map,
 on a beachless island; the 2nd time around, it's in roughly the same place,
 SE of Pelpo Pelo's new location. The island has a tiny forest and a cabin on
 it, and encircled by mountains, so it really sticks out. A [Lucivar Herb] and
 [Hero Drink] can be found around. The shop requires catalogs for the user to
 buy things, though, so those (actual) items must be found first:

 Catalog 1 ---> Sewer in Tradefair
 Catalog 2 ---> Xanadu Castle (Devil's Ring Arena), lower-left room; barrel
 Catalog 3 ---> House of Black Stone B1, newly-appeared barrel (post-fusion)

 Venum Skiver .....  7000  Crystal Spheres .. 18000  Sta Potion ...... 100000
 Iron Hands .......  3000  Earthian Lance ... 11500  Mnd Potion ...... 100000
 Mana Ring ........ 20000  Saint Dome .......  5000  Spd Potion ...... 100000
 Black Petal ......  5000  Grapple Glove ....  9500

 This method is the only way to get some weapons, including Isa's "ultimate"
 weapon, the Eternias, as well as Doll's Saint Dome. Additionally, there's an
 easy way to make money using the catalogs, as items sell for a lot more when
 viewing Catalogue 3 (similar to the shop in Xanadu town that did this). For
 instance, the 30000g Eternias can be sold for 750000g in this way. It's a
 very easy way to build up max money and pump up stats.

[SQXX] AVERAY'S SLUMBER
_______________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This section comes into play after finishing the Curse Bringers' Tower
 optional dungeon, wherein the duke is put into a magical slumber and no
 normal means can awaken him. Hop in the airship and go to Zodiat Monastery,
 in an isolated part of the mountains near the CB Tower. [If you haven't been
 here yet, see the walkthrough for items and whatever.] Go up the left-side
 stairs and search the lower-left bookcases for a complex curse book, which
 Aurora thinks can be of help. Return to Averay's side and agree to break the
 curse, which initiates a battle with some x5Possessor -- they shouldn't be
 much of a problem at this point. The reward? Averay's [Valiant Armor]!

[SQXX] THE DEVIL'S RING
_______________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 After the world fusion, Xanadu Castle is transformed into The Devil's Ring,
 a fighting arena with prizes to be won. Team Battle has a participation fee
 of 2000g, while the Solo Battle's 1000g. There's a ton of ways to get through
 the fights, although most people will recommend having the best set of combos
 available (such as Nephi/Aurora's Absorbus Maximus), the Grapple Glove (buy
 at hidden SE island), and elemental defenses. 

 The main prizes are given at 4, 8, 16, 24, and 28 battles completed, while
 consolation prizes are given if the player quits in-between any of those
 intervals. [The consolation prizes are either mundane or a repeat of the
 interval's item, such as winning a Sorceror's Hat for quitting after the 9th
 battle.]

 04: Sigil Armor (one-time-only; replaced with Int Potion)
 08: Sorceror's Hat
 16: Crystal Spheres
 24: Frenzy
 28: Million Sword

[SQXX] ULTIMATE WEAPONRY
________________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Each characters gets an ultimate weapon that boosts more stats than usual,
 or gives a better effect. Other tools of destruction may better them in ATK
 power but they don't have the all-aroundness these do. Plus, they're listed
 as the ultimate weapons, and it's hard to beat that! [Well, OK, a lot of the
 time you'll end up using some other weapon but still...]

 NOTE: For Kairu's Infinity, collect it from the Infernalia boss in the final
 dungeon, then find a light pillar to teleport back to the Cursed Caves, and
 finally, have the Cythere smithy reforge it. It's a lot of work, but at
 least the puzzles don't reset.

|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|  Here's the depository for all things equipment. Sorry it's
| ATK -> ATK  |  a little redundant, but there's just too much junk to pack
| MA --> MATK |  into one table. Most of this is self-explanitory but there's
| DEF -> DEF  |  two things to touch base on:
| MD --> MDEF |  
| EV --> EVD  |  #1) The "EQUIP BY" section which displays: KANINRDV. This is
| ME --> MEVD |      the first initials in the general order the allies are
| STR -> STR  |      obtained. The order listed is: Kairu, Aurora, Nephi, Isa,
| INT -> INT  |      Nym, Rogurd, Doll, Vai. Yeah, I know Nephi's later on, so
| STA -> STA  |      don't harp on me about it!
| SPR -> SPR  |
| SPD -> SPD  |  #2) The "TYP" column, which displays which type of weapon the
|_____________|      thing is: Slashing, Piercing, or Blunt. Just a tidbit.

 All info is gathered by inspecting each piece in the Item menu, where one can
 see the base stats. If you equip, say, the Infinity and see it increases all
 stats, you'll see that it technically doesn't in the Item menu -- this is
 because root stats (STR, INT, STA, SPR) relate to both types of ATK and DEF,
 and will increase them if they themselves are increased. It ain't rocket
 science, but hopefully y'understand.

ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 [Q] - How do I run from battle?
 [A] - Hold B-button when a character's action gauge is filled.

 [Q] - Why are some of my allies starting battle with negative statuses?
 [A] - The root of this problem relates to Kairu's curse mark, which generates
       abnormalities (SPD Down, Crippled, Poison, etc.) on a random basis.

 [Q] - What is that Monster gauge in the top screen for?
 [A] - Apparently it's supposed to fill as monsters are Appraised (Rogurd's
       ability), but I've never seen it fill one scintilla, and other people
       have encountered that same problem. It may have been dummied out or
       forgotten, who knows? The game's full of weird stuff like that...

 [Q] - Why can't I use magic in House of Black Stone? Is this a glitch?
 [A] - No. If you were paying attention, you'd know Aurora is hiding her
       ability to use magic since it gotten them into enough trouble with the
       locals.

 [Q] - Why can't I use items?
 [A] - The character has to be able to move to use items, which means even if
       s/he is right next to the target, attacks won't go through if s/he's
       in Freeze status (etc.). Kinda quirky...

 [Q] - After Polamaze Temple's first part, how do I find Juji?
 [A] - Go north into the Small Forest section, go east a little bit, then south
       through the trees -- y'should be at a pond section. That's the place!

 [Q] - Where can I get more Paragon Rings?
 [A] - Post-fusion, on the SW icy island (largest). A rare encounter here is
       the 'Fish Lord' who has that item as a steal, so bring Nym. Also, he's
       got a 2nd item to steal: the Philosopher St., which is an accessory
       that grants 100% chance of critical hits, just ilke the Grapple Glove.
       Very nice.

 [Q] - What's that weird ring on the east continent's SW side (late in game)?
 [A] - A temple appears here on a seemingly random basis. Inside, one can get
       a Veteran's Badge, which doubles EXP gained. Re-entering the world map
       over and over doesn't seem to make it appear, so it may be based on the
       internal timer or something (your guess is as good as mine).
