Gongaga Village

|| Treasure:|  Fairy Tale(Boss Reward), X-Potion(Boss Reward), Titan Materia, ||
||          |  X-Potion, White M-phone, Deathblow Materia.                    ||

Once you're back near the Gold Saucer, drive south and enter the destroyed town called Gongaga, in the middle of the forest. It's hard to miss. Here you'll face Reno and Rude.

This boss fight isn't very hard. A few usages of your newly acquired enemy skills (such as Aqualung/Beta) will do these guys in easily, and you also have access to great defensive spells now, such as Big Guard (and White Wind for healing).

|Name: Reno (Level: 22)                    |Nullifies: Gravity                 |
|HP: 2000                                  |-----------------------------------|
|MP: 80                                    |Status Effect Weaknesses:          |
|Exp: 660                                  |Sleep, Poison, Stop, Slow,         |
|AP: 60                                    |Paralyze, Darkness                 |
|Gil: 1500                                 |                                   |
|Drops: Fairy Tale(100%)                   |                                   |
|Steal: ---                                '-----------------------------------|
|Attacks: Short Staff [1 Enemy, Phys Atk, 73.75 Base Damage]; Turk Light [1    |
|Enemy, 256.5 Base Damage]; Electropod [1 Enemy, Phys Atk, Lightning Element,  |
|177 Base Damage]                                                              |
|Name: Rude (Level: 23)                    |Nullifies: Gravity                 |
|HP: 2000                                  |-----------------------------------|
|MP: 135                                   |Status Effect Weaknesses:          |
|Exp: 720                                  |Sleep, Poison, Stop, Slow,         |
|AP: 70                                    |Paralyze, Darkness                 |
|Gil: 2000                                 |                                   |
|Drops: X-Potion(100%)                     |                                   |
|Steal: ---                                '-----------------------------------|
|Attacks: Shoulder Attack [1 Enemy, Phys Atk, 204 Base Damage]; Fire [1 Enemy, |
|Mag Atk, Cost=4MP, 174 Base Damage]; Cure [1 Enemy, Mag Atk, Cost=5MP, 458    |
|Base Healing]                                                                 |
|Strategy: This isn't a tough fight. Open with Big Guard if you have it, then  |
|poison both of them. Pound away with summons, hard-hitting enemy skills like  |
|Aqualung and Beta, and they retreat quickly. Just be sure to deplete both     |
|their HP's, so you get both their rewards. If you use Tifa, Rude will nearly  |
|never attack her..since he likes her.                                         |

After the fight, take the path leading up. Walk to the destroyed reactor, and when you reach the end, you'll get a short scene. After this, check the spot where Scarlet talked about junky materia, and reach out for the Titan Materia.  Junky? Didn't think so! Backtrack and take the other path. Walk under the trunk and go to the town by walking to the north. Talk to whoever you like here. If Aeris and/or Tifa are in your party, an extra scene will occur when you enter the house on the lower right. The other house on the right is an item shop. The house on the lower left is an accessory shop that also sells materia. The Mystify and Time materia are the one's you won't have already, so buy them if you can spare the money. You can also climb up to the weapon store, that doesn't sell any particular good weapons. The house on the upper left is the Inn, which costs 80 Gil a night. The chest here holds an X-Potion. The house on the upper right has a chest that holds a White M-phone for Cait Sith. Exit the town, and while taking the left path make sure to grab the Deathblow Materia when exiting to the World map.

This Materia command deals a critical blow if it hits, thus dealing twice as much damage. However, it also reduces your accuracy by so much you'll only hit 1/3 of the time you would normally. Use it only with high Weapon Attack % weapons.

Now drive to the southwest, through the forests and across the river. It's possible to learn yet another enemy skill from Touch Me's (the frogs) in the forests. You can learn Frog Song from them, a decent skill that casts Sleep and Frog on your opponent.

(Fort Condor Note 5:)
Park the buggy far away from the town you'll see (Cosmo Canyon). If you don't, the buggy will break down, and this means you cannot do the next Fort Condor Battle. And that would be a shame.

Drive to the large canyon, and enter Cosmo Canyon, home of Red XIII.

I had to do this fight again because I did not get the item ether. So in my second try I gave Rude and Reno a M-Tentacle and it did massive damage hurting them both. Reno Said we are leaving the fight but we are still winners. AT the end of the fight I got the Fairy Tale. At first Reno only did a gesture at the end of the fight and said nothing else. Im guessing you need to finish off Reno first to get the item.

I didnt get the Fairy Tale for Aeris. Is it gone for good or can i get it by excavating later?
