This is one of my favorite games for the Final Fantasy series. It is Final Fantasy III for the US gamers and VI for Japan. ii. This game has great play, takes a lot of time and makes you really think. iii. There are tons of hidden items and secrets to the game. I have played the game many times on SNES & Playstation. I hop you enjoy it as much as I have. iv. In the walkthrough I state the main character as you. The character who is currently leading by choice, or by the storyline will be referred to as you. b. Characters i. Some of the characters can do what is called a Limit Break attack. If they are close to death and fight they might use their special powers to lash out at the enemy ii. Terra 1. A girl with a strange power. She was enslaved by the Empire and used a soldier witch. 2. Limit Break a. Riot Blade iii. Locke 1. A thief who prefers to go with the term of Treasure Hunter. 2. He works for the Returners and has vowed to protect Terra and Celes. 3. Limit Break a. Mirager iv. Edgar 1. He is the King of Figero. He is a master of machines. He is very strong and opposes the Empire, even though he fronts himself as a allie. 2. Limit Break a. Royal Shock v. Sabin 1. The younger brother of Edgar.

GoGo 1. No one knows who, or what he is. He has the ability to copy others and do exactly as they do. c. Magicite i. In the game there were creatures called Espers. They were magical being created by the goddesses. They had special magical powers. ii. The Empire thought in order to get their power you have to draw it from them while they were alive, but it is in death that they can transfer their power. iii. You will receive, buy or find Magicite and equip it. While it is equipped you will have a few things developing with your character. 1. Magic Spells a. You will start to learn spells as you have it equipped. The #of the SP times the # of SP on the Magicite status screen total the amount of SP. i. So if you get 2 SP from a battle and have a 5 SP Magicite equipped you will get 10% of the spell. Once you reach 100% you can use the spell. 2. Status Upgrade a. Some of the Magicite has Status Upgrade. If you are equipped with this your stats will get raised even more at level up. 3. Summon a. You can also summon the Esper by using the Magicite in battle. It will take some MP. II. Narshe Witch a. Narshe i. You start off with two soldiers and a woman in MagiTek armor. ii. You hear them talking about the witch and Espers. iii.

Escape from Narshe a. Narshe II i. You wake up in a bed. A man, Arvis appears. He shows you the slave crown the Empire used to enslave you. He asks you name. ii. You can name any character any name you want, but the default name is Terra. iii. Guards surround the house demanding entrance because they think the witch is hiding there. iv. You rush out the back door, over the bridge, where you get spotted, and into the mines again. v. This time you do not have the luxury of MagiTek armor. b. Narshe; Mines II i. You can stay here and level up some if you want. Stop and get the chests here and save at the Save Point. ii. When you are ready head to the back of the cave where you are surrounded by guards.

The soldiers will walk around the boulders heading for Terra. If they reach her the game is over. vi. You do not have to fight all the monsters, but you do have to fight the general. 1. I highly recommend fighting all the monsters you can with Locke to raise his EXP. 2. Switch between the three if one party gets weak. vii. Once you defeated all of the monsters switch to Mog's group, and unequip all his weapons and armor. viii. Now switch to the strongest group and kill the general. ix. At this point Locke will carry Terra to the exit. Terra will wake up and they will leave together. f. Narshe IV i. Once you get outside go into the house right in front. This is the School.
