> In Chapter 5, you were required to:
  + Build the georama in Heim Rada;
  + Destroy the Fire Squall to stop the fiery rain;
  + Defeat Gaspard in both his ordinary form and his ultimate form.
  + Restore the Origin Point of Paznos, the Rebel Army's mobile Stronghold.

> You learned:
  + Gaspard's story showing why he is filled with hate.
  + Griffon is able to control Gaspard and change him into his ultimate form.
  + Griffon sounds like an 8-year old boy (you do NOT see him, you only hear his
    voice).
  + Why Max's Mother must stay in the future.

> When all tasks were completed, you returned to the future Luna Lab.
  + The train Ixion had been finished.
  + You boarded the train and it took you to Griffon's time ~~ Ten thousand years
    in the past.

> If you use 'Move':
  + The section for 'Griffon's Castle is in the upper right corner.
    - The area is an ominous reddish-brown.
    - The edges of this area are formed of purple waves.

> At the various Stations, the train is now PAZNOS not BLACKSTONE ONE.
  + Professor Osmond waits outside the train.
    - If you want Cedric, Borneo, and/or Erik, they are in Heim Rada.
    - Find Milane in Sindain (to put her in your party for upgrading Swords).
    - Find Gerald in Heim Rada (for upgrading Guns).

**  UPGRADING WEAPONS  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Getting ready for the beginning of Chapter 6:

  + Check Monica's armbands.
    - You need to upgrade at least one of her armbands for the fight with Griffon.
      # Using Monica's armband is better because you don't have to turn to aim.
        * Just keep firing.
        * I found the one with Cyclone magic was best.
    - In the fight, Griffon keeps dodging and Max's gun keeps missing as a result.


> RECOMMENDATION:
  + You should take Monica's 'Spirit Brassard' to the attribute levels of:
    - Attack .... 125
    - Cyclone ... 125
    - Smash ..... 125
  + Any other attribute you care to raise.

*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*
**  ADDING COINS TO WEAPONS  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

  + Add these coins first:
    - INDESTRUCTIBLE + BULL'S EYE + TIME.
      # These are the most valuable as far as weapon strength is concerned.
    - INDESTRUCTIBLE reduces 'wear and tear' on the weapon.
    - BULL'S EYE increases damage against the enemy.
    - TIME (at random) stops the enemy for a few moments (long enough to get in
       two or three extra hits).

  + Other useful coins:
    - Only one of either HEALING or ABSORPTION can be added:
      # HEALING ...... allows Max or Monica's HP to restore as they walk.
      # ABSORPTION ... allows their HP to restore as they fight.
      # A combination is effective, for example: a right hand weapon has 'Healing'
        and a left hand weapon has 'Absorption'.
    - WEALTH ....... increases Gilda found after defeating a monster.
    - EXPERIENCE ... increases the amount of ABS gained when a monster is defeated.
    - BANDIT ....... allows items carried by a monster to be 'stolen' but it doesn't
                     work every time the weapon is used.
    - POISON ....... may cause A monster to be poisoned, but usually it is defeated
                     before the poison can have much effect.

  + DON'T ADD 'DARK'
    - If the weapon already has it, get rid of it with a BULL'S EYE coin.
    - DARK will increase damage against the monster BUT HP is taken away to do it.
      # This isn't too bad in the earlier stages of weapon development.
      # But once weapons get to the level where monsters are needed for the upgrade,         it REALLY uses up HP FAST.

> VIDEO: Ixion lands in front of a desert castle and Max, Monica, and Professor
         Osmond exit from the train.
    - The scene is dim and darkened.
  + Max:     So this is ten thousand years ago...
  + Monica:  It is kind of gloomy.
  + Max:     Look. There's only one moon in the sky.

> VIDEO: The sky is dark with a sunset-like pattern along the horizon behind the 
         castle.
         - The moon is a dark orange.

  + Monica:  What's going on? Did we land in a whole different world?
  + Osmond:  I guess even the sky looked different in this time.

  + Next you see the three walking toward a huge gate.
    - A SAVE Point is beside the gate.


> VIDEO continues.
  + Monica:  So Emperor Griffon is somewhere in there, huh?
  + Max:     Yes... I can feel him... Griffon... He's in this palace.
  + Monica:  Finally. Time to set things right.
  + Osmond:  I'll wait for you here. I hope that all goes well.
  + Max:     OK! Let's get going.
  
> Video ends with Max (or Monica) on a cobblestone path looking toward the gate
  and Save point.

  + SAVE!!


NOTE: All the people who were still on the Blackstone One train have come on Ixion
      too.

             - I don't know exactly what he is like, but I'm, certain that he has
               tremendous magical powers!
  + Max:     He's caused enough suffering for everyone. We'll stop him for sure.
  + Monica:  Right! (the castle doors are open)
             - Looks like we're invited in.

    - Then a view of the foyer.
      # There are several alcoves with paintings of gardens.
      # There is also a stairway up to blue-colored doors.
    - After viewing the whole room, the camera view shifts to the top of the
      stairs and comes to a stop.
  + There is a person wearing a long, dark blue hoodie.
    - A dark face with red glowing eyes peer out at them.
    - He starts down the stairs.

  + Person:  You've come here. Excellent.
             Just like myself! No wonder the Atlamillia chose me.
             (continues down the stairs).

  + Monica:  What, you're Emperor Griffon? You must be joking.

    - He continues to walk down the stairs.

  + Person:  What? Emperor Griffon. (laughs) That's the name you humans have given
             me. Well, no matter. A name is but a name.
             - ... Yes. It is I.
             - The one you would call Emperor Griffon, the ruler of darkness!
               That is me. (Laughs again)

> Person is shown on the stairs with his title: Emperor Griffon.
  + Max:     Griffon! You're going to pay!

  + We then get a close up of Griffon and he looks like Pau!

**   THE FIGHT STARTS  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Not a nice fight.
  + Griffon's attacks:
    - From a distance he throws roses.
      # As soon as you see them appear on either side of him:
        * RUN SIDEWAYS.
        * They will follow you, so keep moving until they stop.
    - When he comes close up, he bends his ears over and does a magic strike.
      # The magic circles around him.
        * IF IT HITS, IT TAKES OUT A LOT OF HP!!!
    - WHEN THOSE EARS BEND OVER, DON'T WAIT AROUND.
      # YOU HAVE JUST BARELY ENOUGH TIME TO MOVE OUT OF CONTACT WITH THE MAGIC.
  

> FIGHT STRATEGY:
  + This is a LONG fight.
  + Monica's magic does MUCH better than Max's gun.
    - Partly because her magic automatically seeks the enemy.
    - I found the best magic was 'Cyclone'.
  + I found quickly firing without waiting for Monica's magic to build up was
    better in the long run.
    - Just keep firing, but be prepared to:
      # HEAL!!!
      # DODGE!!!
      # MOVE SIDEWAYS WHEN YOU SEE THE ROSES BEING GATHERED!!!
  + Later, you'll switch to the Ridepod.

  + You hear Griffon:
    - Humans don't truly appreciate the value of existance.

  + You see Max, bright flash of light.

  + You see Monica, and another bright flash of light as she says: Excuse me!

  + Then you see both of them against a black background.
    - A flower appears between them.
    - As Max reaches for it, it disappears in sparkles.

  + Griffon's Voice:
    - It's because of humans that suffering spreads throughout the world.
    - I won't forgive you humans. I won't lose to you any more.

  + Max: What do you mean?
    - They fade to black.

  + Griffon:  (angrily) You see! Even you don't understand! You should be wiped
              out of existence.
    - The background brightens, but you don't see either Max or Monica.

  + Griffon:  (emphatically) All of you should be wiped out!

> You are back in the fight - WATCH OUT!!!
  + Stay with Monica at first, firing rapidly.

  + When Griffon's HP is down to less than one quarter:
    - Switch to the Ridepod with the Nova Cannon.
    - Keep firing and dodging if necessary.
    - Watch the WHP (you'll need to fill up with 2x Repair Powder at least once).

NOTE: If you can get Griffon at the left edge of the screen, it's as if he gets
      'stuck'.
      - The Ridepod can keep firing and doesn't get hit.


> When Griffon's HP is gone, the screen goes black for a moment.
  + Griffon is down on his knees.

  + Griffon:  Urgh. Quite impressive... I am... finished.

  + He collapses on the floor.


> Monica and Max walk up to the body.
  + Monica:  We won...?
  + Max:     Be careful.

**   GRIFFON'S PLAN  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Suddenly, Griffon wakes up.
  + He snatches both the Red AND the Blue Atlamillia and leaps into the air.

  + Max:     No!
  + Monica:  Damn!!
  + Griffon: He-he-he  I've got them. This is what I wanted.
             - With this, it will all be mine!

> Griffon is holding the two stolen Atlamillia in his hands.
  + He begins to shudder, the Atlamillia begin to glow and a yellow glow forms
    around him.
    - The glow brightens and it is as if there is an explosion.
    - When the glow fades, Griffon has changed form.
      # He's a monster with blue wings.
      # He snarls:  Grrrrrraaaahhhh! (claps his wings and a wind blows into Max
                    and Monica)
    - The golden Atlamillia is in his forehead.
    - His voice has changed and is much deeper.

> VIDEO continues:
  + Griffon: Now then, why don't we get started. It's time to... purify this world.
             - Have you heard the legend of these stones?
  + Monica:  The legend of the stones...
             - "He who obtains the three Atlamillia receives the power of the
                stars."
  + Griffon: That's right. That's exactly how it goes.
             - However... these stones have another role as well... A somewhat
               different role.
  + Monica:  Huh?
  + Griffon: In these stones is enough power to destroy the world...
             - The ancients feared the people of the future.
               # Humans are dangerous creatures, possessing both wisdom and even
                 greater greed.
             - They knew that once humans built up their civilizations and gained
               great powers, they would end up harming the planet itself.
             - So in order to ensure the planet could go on living forever, they
               came up with a special contrivance.
             - "The Star of Oblivion."
  + Max      (questioning) Star of Oblivion?
  + Griffon: If humans controlled by greed were to learn of the existence of the
             Atlamillia capable of giving them the ultimate power, they would be
             certain to start a war to try to become ruler.
             - And they would ultimately fall into the hands of the one with the
               most power.
             - When that time comes, all life on the world would be wiped out, and
               the greed in this world would finally be erased.
             - Time and again, throughout the world's history there have been mass
               extinctions...
             - But this tale of ruin and destruction definitely won't be making it
               into the annals of history.

> Close-up view of Griffon's face.
  + It is a dark grey with dark red hair and beard.
  + Griffon: Finally the great disaster shall fall upon the world...
             - The Star of Oblivion will realize its true glory.
  + Monica:  What are you talking about? If you do that, you'll be destroyed along
             with everything else!
  + Griffon: Me? Hahaha! That was my plan all along.
             - I will be swept up in the cataclysm along with all of you fool
               humans. That will be my fate.
             - Everything will disappear from the face of the World.
             - And then... a new world shall take place.
             - That's how it will be... How it was always meant to be...
  + Max:     I won't let you do it.
  + Griffon: (laughs) Ha! And just how are you going to stop me?
             - This is out of your hands now.
             - The change has already begun. Nothing can stop it now.
             - He he... But just waiting around for it to happen would be no fun
               at all.
             - I think I'll erase everything from the world just before the real
               destruction begins.
             - Just sit back and watch.

> Griffon clenches his hands and Max and Monica brace themselves for whatever is
  coming.
  + Griffon looks up and raises his hands high above his head.
    - A mist forms around him and the palace begins to tremble.
    - Max and Monica brace even more.
  + Monica:  (a little scared) What? What are you doing?
    - Everything goes dark for a moment.

> View switches to outside the palace.
  + Brown spikes shoot out of the ground.
    - A view of the whole palace shows that it is surrounded by these Spikes.
    - Clouds of dust shut out the palace.
      # When it clears the palace courtyard and the surrounding area is filled
        with spikes and purple cracks in the earth.
    - The discolored area and the palace begin to rise into the air, bright
      pinkish-purple streams flowing down from the cracks.
    - A bright glow forms behind the palace and a circular Glyph (magic symbol)
      appears.
      # The Glyph continues to rise.

> The scene switches to the inside of the palace.
  + Griffon: Splendid. So this is the power of the stones...
  + Monica:  (still scared) What did you do?
  + Griffon: You'll find out soon enough.
             - I shall show you... the power this palace possesses... the power
               *I* possess...

> He raises his hands over his head again and Monica and Max stagger.
  + The palace's trembling increases.
  + Max:     What the...?!
  + Monica:  What's happening...?!

> Mist forms around the figure of Griffon...
  + We see the outside of the palace which is now an island in the sky, bright
    pinkish-purple streams still falling...
  + A glow of rainbow colored stripes form and cover the palace.
    - As it clears you see that the palace is gone.

> Max and Monica are still inside the palace.
  + Max:     What happened?!
  + Monica:  Don't tell me...
  + Griffon: (laughs) Go have a look outside. I'm sure you'll like the view.

> Max and Monica run to the palace doors.

> Video ends with Max at the outside of the door.
  + There is a SAVE Point beside the door.
    - SAVE!!! SAVE!!!

> Then as Max steps down onto the courtyard...
  + He and Monica walk toward the gate.
  + Osmond:  Something terrible has happened! (he runs past them toward the
              palace door).

> He turns around and stands before them panting.
  + Max:      What is it?
  + Osmond:   Somehow this palace has returned to the present.
  + Monica:   (looking around) It can't be!
  + Max:      Looking up toward a dark blue sky) What is Griffon planning now?!

> Then we get a view of the palace and it is no longer so dingy.
  + The view changes to the floating palace and island and brightly burning shots
    are fired from it down to the ground.
  + Monica:   I can't believe this!!
  + Osmond:   It's Griffon's doing!

> An explosion occurs behind the professor and he starts running in circles.
  + You see the palace and another purple shot is poised to fire.
  + Max and Monica say they have to get out of here.
  + They run just as the shot hits where they were standing.
  + Max hears a sound.
  + Max:      Is that Conda and the others?

> You see the huge eyes of the Carpenterion blinking.
  + Monica:   Max!! Run!!

  + Inside the Carpenterion, Conda says: 'They need backup!! Fire!!!
    - The Carpenterion uses its huge hands to commence firing back at the palace.
    - A shot just misses it.

  + Osmond, Max and Monica use the distraction to run to Ixion and board it.
    - The Carpenterion leaves the palace and Ixion takes off.
    - It lands at an area that seems to be covered with greyish-brown mud.
    - Ahead of Max and Monica is a circular ruin.
  + Monica:   It looks like ruins.
  + Osmond:   I've followed Elena's instructions. She said to land here.

> They walk toward what looks like an altar.
  + Osmond:  Here it is... I'll set it up.
    - He places a green colored device on the ground. A hologram of Elena appears.

  + Elena:   ... Listen Carefully, Max. Something terrible has happened.
             - It's incredible, but somehow Griffon has shown up in your time.
             - If he continues, he could go through time destroying each era in
               turn.
  + Max:     So what should we do?
  + Elena:   The only way to stop Griffon is to attack his palace with our
             fortress, Paznos.
  + Monica:  But it's not like we can bring Paznos to this time period.
  + Elena:   There is a way.
  + Monica:  You're kidding!
  + Elena:   At the place where you are now, Kazarov Stonehenge, there is a unique
             convergence.
             - We must make a Chrono Union there.
  + Max:     Chrono Union?
  + Elena:   It's where time and space meet each other.
             - We have to make an area where your time and my time will both exist.
             - If we can do that, we can send Paznos to your time.
  + Max:     That's really possible?
  + Elena:   Yes, the ancient ones knew the secret and Luna Labs deciphered it
             from their wall murals.
             - We don't have much time. Let's get to it.
             - There should be four pillars standing there in Kazarov.
  + Max:     I see them.
  + Elena:   In each pillar there is a hole. The holes are there to receive four
             colored gems.
             - Put a gem in each one of the holes and it is possible to make a
               Chrono Union.
  + Max:     But where do I find these gems?
  + Elena:   The Four Gems are hidden somewhere in your world.
             - In the forest, the valleys, the sea, or in the mountains.
             - Go to all the places you've ever been and search for those gems.
             - They're definitely there somewhere.
             - There's a key for getting the gems from where they are hidden.
             - The key is hidden on the center of Kazarov Stonehenge where you
               are now.

**   THE STAR KEY  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Monica walks to the altar which has an aqua stone on top and is in the center
  of Kazarov Stonehenge.
  + She looks at it then walks to the pillar beside it with the blue stone on
    top.
  + Max walks to the other pillar on the other side of altar; the one with the red
    stone on top.
  + At the same time, they each press something on the pillars.
    - The central mound containing altar and pillars begins to rotate.
    - The altar rises displaying a pale yellow pattern, and it continues to rise.
    - The mound completes a full rotation and stops.
  + Monica:   In here?

> She walks over to the pillar and receives the Star Key.
  + They walk over to where Elena's hologram and Professor Osmond wait.
  + Elena:   That's it. Now if you find doors that open with that key, you are
             sure to find the gems.
  + Max:     Okay. I've got it. We'll head out and find 'em.
  + Elena:   Even now, Griffon is starting his rampage again. Hurry Max.


> They are inside Ixion and Professor Osmond is explaining.
  + Osmond:   Now you can jump to anyplace you like in this time or the future by
              using the Ixion time travel system.
              - With the Atlamillia stolen, the Ixion is our only means of time
                travel.
              - And you can control the Ixion travel system by remote too.
              - If it's a place with a time gate, you can go directly into the
                future, just like before.
              - Use it carefully!
  + Max:     Awesome! Convenient AND cool!
  + Osmond:  So where to first?
  + Monica:  Remember the star symbols we've seen around?
             - Maybe those symbols mark where the gems are. What do you think?
  + Max:     I think you're right. Let's go!

NOTE: You can go to the future from the World Map.
      + Each place in Max's time now has the future added to the Menu:
        - Sindain ........... ?  Jurak's Mall.
        - Balance Valley .... ?  Starlight Temple.
        - Veniccio .......... ?  Luna Lab.
        - Heim Rada ......... ?  Gundorada Workshop.

      + But to get back from the future, you must use a time gate.
        - Instead of the Atlamillia, the Ixion Travel System enables the Time Gate
          to work.

> Video ends with Max outside Ixion.

**   DEFEAT MONSTERS TO UPGRADE WEAPONS  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Walkthrough (cheatcodes.com) for Chapter 5 suggested upgrading weapons to at
  least some of the following.
  + Check the Chapter 4 and 5 Walkthroughs for how to get to these weapons.
  + All these weapons can be upgraded by the time you complete most of this
    chapter.

> Max:
  + Poison Wrench
  + Digi Hammer
  + Question Shooter
  + Sexy Panther (or Soul Breaker)
  + Dark Viper

> Monica's Swords:
  + Ruler's Sword
  + Claymore
  + Halloween Blade
  + Sargatanas
  + Tsukikage
  + Small Sword


NOTE 1: There is also the Lamb's Sword.
        It can be upgraded to EITHER:
        - Ama No Murakumo ~~ NOT recommended (it's a Spheda Prize RBW Star
          Floor 2)
        - 7th Heaven ~ Recommended (no other sword can be raised to this one)


NOTE 2: The Tsukikage can be raised to the Ama No Murakumo.
        + It probably has higher Attribute values.
        + You don't want two of the same sword, so you can do this:
          - First raise the Tsukikage to Ama No Murakumo.
            * Keep at least 5 Synthesis Points.
          - Next raise the Spheda Prize Ama No Murakumo to +5.
          - Spectrumize the Spheda Prize Ama No Murakumo+5 and synthesize it to
            the other one.


NOTE 3: Monica received the Holy Daedalus Blade at the end of Chapter 5.
        - You probably haven't had a chance to upgrade it.
        - For those who haven't looked at these 'box charts" before:
          # Information in square brackets (e.g., [110]):
            * The MAXIMUM value the indicated Attribute can be raised to BEFORE
              upgrading to the next weapon.
          # The first box (Holy Daedalus Blade) is the starting values for that
            weapon.
          # The next two boxes (Sun Sword and Big Bang) show:
            * The MINIMUM values for the indicated attributes in order to upgrade
              to that weapon.


    Holy Daedalus Blade-->  Sun Sword   -->  Big Bang

> Monica's Armbands:
  + In Walkthrough for Chapter 3, it was recommended you build four armbands while
    you had Lin in the party:
    - Athena's Armlet (Fire magic)
    - Spirit Brassard (Cyclone magic)
    - Moon Armlet (Chill magic)
    - Destruction Armlet (Lightning Magic)

 DEFEATING MONSTERS 
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> All weapons will need certain monsters defeated before they can be upgraded to
  the next-to-final weapon.

  + With one exception, all weapons must defeat TWO different Chapter 6 monsters.
    - That's the Claymore, which needs to defeat only a Blumo.

  + It doesn't seem to matter which weapon is used.
    - I had the Spirit Brassard equipped.
      # When it defeated the 'Heat Fairy'.
        * The requirement for the Question Shooter (Max's gun) AND for the Athena's
          Armlet were both filled.
    - On another floor, the Ridepod defeated all the monsters.
      # All weapons that needed the monster on that floor were credited with the
        defeats.
      # This saves a lot of messing around.


> Another important factor in this upgrading process:
  + You don't have to do all three floors and the BOSS Floor of one dungeon before
    going to the next.
    - And you can start with any dungeon you please.
    - For consistency, this Walkthrough does the four Dungeons' paths in the order
      given below:

  + There are four Stars, one for each of the dungeons:
    - Rainbow Butterfly Wood (RBW).
    - Starlight Canyon (SC).
    - Ocean's Roar Cave (ORC).
    - Mount Gundor (MG).

  + The floors are numbered to match the sequence they need to be completed in, for
    each specific dungeon.
    - They are called 'Star Floors' because they are on the Star Paths.
    - There are three floors and one BOSS Floor in each dungeon
    - Like all other paths, the floors in a particular dungeon must be completed
      in the correct sequence.
    - However, you can switch between the dungeons if and when you wish.
      # For example:
        * You could do RBW Star Floor 1, then ORC Star Floor 1.
        * Then you could do SC Star Floors 1 and 2.
        * Then go to MG Floor 1.
        * Etc.
      # Or you could do all of the first floors of the four dungeons before doing
        any others.

NOTE: Once the following monsters have been defeated and the weapons have been
      upgraded:
      + They level up very, very quickly.
      

> WHEN YOU GET THE DESPERADO GUN:
  + Check in the Status Screen:
    - If it has the 'Dark' Icon (orange death's head), GET RID OF IT with a Bull's
      Eye Coin.
    - 'Dark' on this level of weapon eats Max's HP FAST.


> SUMMARY OF THE MONSTERS TO BE DEFEATED:

  NOTE: YES, it IS MG Chp 5 Floor 1 for the Question Shooter.

> We'll discuss the Star Paths to get the gems in the same order as the altars:
       Earth Altar .... RBW (Rainbow Butterfly Wood).
       Wind Altar ..... SC  (Starlight Canyon).
       Water Altar .... orc (Ocean's Roar Cave).
       Fire Altar ..... mg  (Mount Gundor).


> HOWEVER YOU CAN DO THE DUNGEONS IN ANY ORDER YOU WISH.
  + For Example:
    - If you want to upgrade the Poison Wrench to Sigma Breaker BEFORE you tackle
      a 'wipe-out with Max's Right-Hand Weapon' (RBW Star Floor 2):
      # First complete the RBW Star Floor 1: "Looking for the Earth Gem"
        and defeat a 'Sylph' with the weapon.
      # Then  go to Ocean's Roar Cave Star Floor 1: "Looking for the Water
        Gem" to defeat a Star Tortoise.

  + ETC.


> It is a good idea to do all four sets of Star Floors EXCEPT the BOSS floors
  at first.
  + Then do the Mt Gundor BOSS floor.
    - With the Scoop of the Fire Gem Altar, you can invent Steve's Nova Cannon II.

> There is no Georama in Kazarov Stonehenge.
  + But you do get Geostones on SOME of the floors in this Chapter.

> Four of the Star Floors have Geostones.

  + DON'T download them until you have them all!

  + Then go to Sindain.
    - Remember those conditions in the analysis that stayed as '???'...
      # Even though the Analysis said 100% completed?


> When you download all Four geostones:
  + Now you can make:
     Chimney Pot
     Hay and Hoe
     Barrel
     Leafy Tree

  + Conditions made clear:
     Fence around Firbits' House
     Golden Eggs restored
     Resident in Straw House


> Check Analysis:
  + All checkpoints can now be read.


> I placed one of each of the above four items near the Straw house.

  + Gordon's Bonsai now sells:
    Plum Rice Ball ..... 800 G

> Plum Rice Ball description states that eating this causes thirst.
  + This DOESN'T happen!
    - It heals any status conditions AND restores HP.


NOTE: I DIDN'T DISCOVER THIS UNTIL I HAD COMPLETED CHAPTER 7 EXCEPT FOR THE FINAL
      BOSSES.
      - It is possible that the Plum Rice Ball is not available until the beginning
        of Chapter 7.

**   MORE MINI-CHESTS  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Go to Jurak's Mall.
  + In the Jurak Arms entry is a bluish colored mini-chest with an 'Amethyst'.
  + Beside the 'Golden Eggs' is another with an 'Aquamarine'.
  + Beside the Tailor's Shop' are three mini-chests:
    - Potato Pie.
    - Fruit of Eden.
    - Witch Parfait.
  + Going back toward the Time Gate near a large looped root is a 'Fruit of Eden'.


> Go to the Starlight Temple.
  + As you face the 'Star Items' Shop door; down the stairs to your right is a
    mini-chest with a 'Fruit of Eden'.
  + By the right torch at the foot of the ramp to the level where Madame Crest is,
    is a mini-chest with 'Potato Pie'.
  + In back of Madame Crest is a chest with another 'Fruit of Eden'.
    - Looking at Madame Crest, go to your right and beside the first post, is a
      'Witch Parfait'.  


> In case you didn't get the mini-chests inside the small labs at Luna Lab (in
  Chapter 5):
  + In the 'Red Lab':
    - On the landing down the first part of the ramp is a 'Potato Pie'.
    - Around past the chairs and almost to the railing along the top of the ramp
      is a 'Fruit of Eden'.
  + In the 'Purple Lab':
    - Just past the last chair is another 'Fruit of Eden'.
    - on the inside of the railing at the foot of the ramp is another 'Witch
      Parfait'.
  + The 'Blue Lab':
    - Just down from the ramp and against the outer wall is a 'Witch Parfait'.
    - Around past the chairs is another 'Fruit of Eden'.
  + The 'Green Lab':
    - Just before the second ramp down, there is a 'Potato Pie'.
    - Past all the chairs is a 'Fruit of Eden'.


> Return to Gundorada Workshop:
  + On the landing that leads to G*Tools (1st floor):
    - A mini chest with a 'Turquoise'.
    - Another mini-chest with a 'Fruit of Eden' is against the wall just below
      and out from this landing (it's by the reddish brown support).
  + On the landing that leads to G*Weapons (1st floor):
    - A mini-chest with a 'Diamond'.
  + From this point and past the West Jump Gate, in the middle of a fence in a
    setback is another mini-chest with a 'Fruit of Eden'.
    - About opposite this setback and by the inner fence is a mini-chest with a
     'Witch parfait'.

  + On the landing to G*Parts (2nd floor):
    - A mini-chest with a 'Topaz'.
    - If you start on this landing, look out toward the pit.
      # Go down the left ramp and left again to a reddish brown support where there
        is another mini-chest with a 'Witch Parfait'.
  + Heading in the opposite direction (to the right) and past the elevator.
    - By the fence around the pit and opposite a setback is a mini-chest with
      'Potato Pie'.
  + Continuing in the same direction in, a setback with one of the Transmission
    Devices has a mini-chest with another 'Fruit of Eden'.

  + I didn't find any mini-chests on the third floor.

> Return to the present with the Time Gate using Ixion's time-traveling mechanism.

> After giving these:
  + Max and Monica both have 76 Shield.
  - I gave the extra 'Fruit of Eden' to Monica (HP 192) rather than Max (HP 184)
    because she has a VERY difficult task in Ocean's Roar Cave Star Floor 3.

> WARNING: This floor is WAY TOO DANGEROUS.
  + You get that close to the Sylph and you are likely to be incapacitated!
    - You MUST watch Max's HP AND HEAL.
    - The Wipe-Out goal is not impossible but VERY, VERY DIFFICULT.
    - Be sure Max's Wrench/Hammer has a 'Time Coin' synthesized to the weapon
      and there is a chance the critter will be 'stopped' (it does help).
    - To upgrade the poison Wrench to Sigma Breaker:
      # You'll need to go to Ocean's Roar Cave to get the second critter (Star
        Tortoise).

  + Two other problems in getting the Wipe Out Goal:
    - If you hit back the spit balls (Sylph or Zucky) and this damages the
      critter even slightly - you fail the Wipe-Out goal!
    - If you knock the critter down, Max is likely to kick it.

  + Yeah! Everything is stacked against you on this floor...

      # It 'sticks' to the Gemron and RAPIDLY takes down the HP (the Gemron's
        Shield level is a lot less than Monica's).

> Heat Fairy [needed for ATHENA'S ARMLET and for the QUESTION SHOOTER]:
  + This is similar to the Smiling Fairy (but more powerful).
    - And it takes away a lot more HP.
    - Like the Smiling Fairy, if it gets close enough it 'sticks' to you.
      # And keeps hitting!
  + Items dropped ...

     Bread

> Invention Reminder:
  + You can get Holy Stone for the Lightspeed Bomb by fighting the Holy Gemron in
    Starlight Canyon.
    - SC Floor 9: Little Dragon Counter attack (the floor before Barga's Valley)
      # But it may take several trips through the floor to get enough.

  + To make the various bombs while on the floor, you'll need to make sure you have
    - Enough Power, Flame, Lightning and Wind Crystals.
    - Also enough Light Elements. 


  + Bomb:
          Ideas = Candle + Pot + Weapon Shop Sign
      Materials = 1x Flame Crystal + 5x Gunpowder + 1x Wind Crystal

  + Improved Bomb:
          Ideas = Candle + Coal + Egg
      Materials = 1x Bomb + 3x Flame Crystal + 3x Wind Crystal

  + Lightspeed:
          Ideas = Candle + Flower + Rock
      Materials = 10x Light Element + 1x Holy Stone + 5x Lightning Crystal

  + Final Bomb:
          Ideas = Candle + Cinders + Oven
      Materials = 10x Bomb + 7x Flame Crystal + 1x Power Crystal


> Use Items (Improved Bombs, Lightspeed and Final Bombs).
  + Carry 20 regular bombs so you can make more Improved Bombs while on the floor.
    - Expensive. but you can buy them from Morton's Sundries.
    - If you need to make Final Bombs:
      # You'll also need to make more regular Bombs (each Final Bomb needs 10!).

> Strategy for using Bombs.
  + MAKE SURE YOU EQUIP A WRENCH (OR SWORD) THAT NEEDS BUILDING UP.
    - Using the Bombs adds Synth Drops to the Right-Hand weapon.
    - You don't really want to build up your Spheda Club (the higher it is the
      harder it is to hit the Sphere).
  
  + Balalla, Mimic, and Mummy each require 2 Improved Bombs.
    - Throw the second while the critter is knocked down by the first.
    - Occasionally, a Mummy will require a third if the first doesn't catch it
      full on.

  + Iron Mask is taken out by a Lightspeed (a Final Bomb if you don't have any
    Lightspeed).
    - Three Improved Bombs should be enough, but it keeps moving so some miss.
    - Better to use a Lightspeed or Final Bomb to be sure of it.

> Iron Mask (needed for the DIGI HAMMER).
  + Similar to the Nikapous but the mask doesn't allow hard hits when closed.
    - The critter is also wearing a suit of armor.
      # Still it's fairly easy to defeat especially when the mask is open.
    - It kicks you hard if you get too close (its leg stretches!).

> Strategy for using bombs to fill the Wipe-Out goal.
  + Do lock-On.
    - You can toss the bomb when monsters are close to you without damage to
      yourself.
  + The Star Tortoise AND the Mimic require three Improved Bombs.
    - To save time, you may want to use a Lightspeed or Final Bomb.
    - The Mimic leaps into the air sometimes or bounces .
      # If that happens, all bombs except the Final Bomb will probably miss.
        * And if you're not careful, the final bomb may miss too!

> This floor has a RED SEAL.

    so she can continue.

> The wipe-Out goal is VERY difficult because the 'Metal Bomber' (like a souped-up
  Vanguard)) hits hard and there are FOUR of them.

    - Choose a sword that is strong in these two.
      # Shining Bravado is one.
      # Use Level-Up powder, if necessary.
      # Synthesizing a Diamond is helpful.

      + And it was much easier to fill the Time Goal on the MG Star Floor 1.

    - You can see all four of the pillars and the central altar.
    - Max and Monica approach the altar.
    - The ground begins to tremble.

  + Max:     Whoa!
  + Monica:  What's Happening?

  + Each of the gems send up a stream of colored light into the sky.
    - You see the sky with the moons.
    - The four streams of light combine and the place where they combine begins to
      glow.
    - The light pulses and the view changes.
    - There is another pulse of light and where the streams join there appears a
      castle-like shape.

  + Monica:  (shouts) Look! It's Paznos!!
  + Max:     (jumping up and down) Alright! It worked!

             given him special qualities.
  + Galen:   A boy descended from two eras...
             - He may be able to save us. He could be the one...
             - Now let us strike back!

             - Are you trying to stand up to my power with such a puny little
               fortress?
             - Have it your way. (Savagely) Let the battle begin.

  + Griffon raises his hands and pulses of purple light spread out from his body.
    - He gestures.

  + View changes to the Moon Flower Palace and a reddish-purple light glows from
    the top.

  + Several balls of the colored light spread out and down from the palace.

  + Galen:   These Paznos attacks aren't doing anything.
             - Prepare to fire the Nova Driver.

  + Monica:  It looks like they're going to use Paznos' strongest weapon.
             - The Nova Driver Cannon.
  + Max:     The Nova Driver Cannon?

  + Galen:   You must be joking.
             - Paznos doesn't have anything like that.
  + Elena:   Yes it does. You just don't know about it.
  + Galen:   Wh-What? But ever since Paznos was in its planning stages. I...
  + Elena:   History has changed.
             - Since Max and Monica went back in time, things have changed
               slightly.
             - They created a whole new time stream.
  + Galen    (thoughtfully) A new time stream... So that explains it...

  + Elena    (to technician) Put Paznos in Colossus Mode!
  + Tech:    (pressing a control) Entering Colossus Mode!!

  + Paznos descends then various parts move and rearrange (Transformer!).

  + Max:     Cool! What IS it?
  + Monica:  I have no idea!
             - It looks like...
             - Like Paznos is transforming!

  + Paznos continues to transform.
    - Hands appear at the end of arms.
    - Legs are attached.
    - And Paznos is a giant robot-like critter.

  + Max:     Paznos turned into a giant robot!
  + Monica:  Huh?! How did it do that?


> Elena and Galen look out of the window of the Bridge. Through the window you can
  see the falling palace with smoke trailing.

  + Elena:   We'll stop the palace with Paznos.
             - (yells) Dive!
  + Tech:    Yes sir!


> More ominous music.
  + We see the finished transformed Paznos still in the sky.
  + Suddenly, Paznoz' backpack ignites and it dives towards the falling palace.
    - Paznos catches the island to crackling/breaking sounds.
    - Paznos braces itself and tosses the island in a different direction.
    - The palace crashes to the ground and Crunch!... the earth beneath the palace
      disappears into the ground.
    - Paznos steps forward and his foot descends.

  + Max:     How cool!
             It just threw the palace aside!
  + Monica:  The palace is on the ground. Let's try to get inside.
  + Max:     OK!


> Max (or Monica) is waiting outside the train Ixion, and in front of Kazarov
  Stonehenge.

> Walk up toward the entrance to the ruins, turn around and look across the train
  to where Paznos has landed.
  + Take the photo (the ringing sound and the orange lightbulb tell you have the
    scoop).
    - You may have to adjust the focus.

  + Talk to Professor Osmond, then tell him 'Yes' to continue.
    - They enter the control compartment of Ixion and Elena is on the vision
      screen.

  + Elena:   (commandingly) Max, Monica, listen carefully. Griffon's palace is back
             on the ground.
             - This is our last chance to take him out.
             - Its up to you to repair the history Griffon has perverted.
             - This is the final Chapter.

> You see the railway track and Kazarov Stonehenge.
  + Ixion takes off (literally), travels through the sky, and lands in front of
    the palace.
  + Professor Osmond, Max, and Monica descend from the train.

  + Osmond:  I'll wait here. Make sure you get him.
  + Max:     (firmly) We will!

> When you look around, the train is on grass.
  + The palace is on a mound of dark purple earth.
    - At the edge of the mound is a SAVE Point.

> SAVE!!!

 MONSTER BADGE UPGRADE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> You can, if you spend a little time, raise the Gemron Badge to another
  evolutionary level.
  + The best floors for raising Experience (each has 24 Monsters to defeat):
    - RBW Star Floor 1: Looking for the Earth Gem.
    - SC  Star Floor 1: Looking for the Wind Gem.
    - ORC Star Floor 2: Pirates' Revenge.
  + The best floor in Mount Gundor only has 22 monsters:
    - Floor 3: Crazy Mountain.
 
  + Go to each of floor and repeat it until the Experience gained on one
    pass-through reduces to 30 Exp Points.
    - Then go to the next floor.

> If you don't have the Badge to the Thunder Gemron, review the Walkthrough for
  Chapter  (search for 'Ice Gemron').

  + Here are the major Levels up for the Thunder Gemron (when a name change
    occurs):

                 Level| Level Name      |Attack|Shield|
                 _____|_________________|______|______|
 Thunder Gemron  | 51 | Dragon Fighter  | 111  |  40  |
                 | 55 | Dragon Warrior  | 115  |  42  |
                 | 61 | Dragon Champ    | 122  |  44  |
                 | 67 | Dragon Commander| 129  |  46  |
                 | 73 | Dragon Master   | 135  |  48  |
                 | 76 | Dragon Master   | 139  |  48  |
                 |____|_________________|______|______|
                 | 76 | Evolve  (Two Choices)         | 
                 |____|_______________________________|


> When it gets to this evolutionary stage, the choices are:
  + Fire Gemron ...... Attack 202
                       Shield  50 
  + Holy Gemron ...... Attack 189
                       Shield  52


> You can only choose ONE of these upgrades.
  + The Holy Gemron has a lower attack but a higher shield.

  + Whichever you choose, you will NOT be able to get the other one.
    - I saved two copies of the game so I could do both to help you decide.


> The Holy Gemron stats:
  + More effective in defeating the Undead.


               Level| Level Name      |Attack|Shield|
               _____|_________________|______|______|
  Holy Gemron  | 76 | Dragon Master   | 189  |  52  |
               | 79 | Dragon King     | 194  |  54  |

               | 91 | Dragon God      | 212  |  58  |
               |____|_________________|______|______|
               | 99 | Dragon God      | 225  |  58  | Maximum Level (Holy Germron)
               |____|_________________|______|______|




> The Fire Gemron stats:

               Level| Level Name      |Attack|Shield|
               _____|_________________|______|______|
  Fire Gemron  | 76 | Dragon Master   | 202  |  50  |
               | 79 | Dragon King     | 207  |  52  |
               | 85 | Grand Dragon    | 217  |  54  |
               | 91 | Dragon God      | 226  |  56  |
               |____|_________________|______|______|
               | 99 | Dragon God      | 240  |  56  | Maximum Level (Fire Germron)
               |____|_________________|______|______|



  NOTE: At level 99, for either choice, the Experience Gauge fills to 100/100 but
        does NOT go to the next level.


> Whichever you choose:
  + As soon as the choice is made, you not only get a Monster Drop, you also get
    5x Ruby!
  + If you synthesize this monster drop, it gives:
    - 12 for the Attack attribute.
    -  6 for each of the other attributes.
  + Ruby gives:
     Flame  15 points
     Smash  15 Points
