III. Introduction
-----------------

      Welcome to our FAQ/Walkthrough for Summoner on PS2.  I say "our"
because that's what this is.  Although I am the sole contributor in the
beginning, I encourage others to help me create what I hope to be the
best FAQ for this game.

      This, however, is the first guide I've ever written so
you'll have to exhibit a little patience if I make a mistake or do
things that confuse you.  If I make a mistake or confuse you, I expect
you to e-mail me and tell me about it.  Like I said, I'd like for this
to be the best FAQ available and I can only do it with your help.

      Contributions are always welcome.  In my Requests to the Reader
sections, I'll post anything I neeed help with or any questions I may
have for you, the reader.  Things that are not welcome however are
sections of the walkthrough.  This means that if you're further along
than my walkthrough, you cannot send me the way to get through the next
section.

      Anyway, the reason I'm doing is because of the fact that there
simply isn't a single useful FAQ for this game right now.  I've always
wanted to do an FAQ anyway, but every game I have already has enough
FAQs to cover every aspect of the game.  When I saw the FAQs that were
available I decided that this would be the prime game for me to write
one for.

      In other FAQs, some of the authors have stated that writing one is
a lot of work.  I can say now that I completely agree with them.  It
took me three and a half days to finish version 1.0.  So for all of you
that would also like to write a FAQ in the future, make sure you know
what you're doing.  A RPG has got to be the hardest kind of game to
write a FAQ for.  They require so much more detail than most games in
other genres.  This game is definitely no exception.

      Summoner is a game that tells the story of Joseph, a young man
born with the mark of the Summoner.  Through the use of magical rings,
Summoners have the power to call forth demons and control them.
However, to the north in Orenia is the Emperor Murod, a powerful
sorcerer who wants Joseph dead.  With his unworldly powers, Murod
launches a campaign whose sole purpose is to find Joseph.  When Murod's
forces reach Joseph's home of Masad our story begins.

IV. Game Basics
---------------

Controls-

D-pad: Used to execute Chain Attacks
Left Stick: Move character, navigate menus
Right Stick: Rotate camera (left, right), zoom in/out (up, down)
X: Confirm selection, search
O: Open Spells menu
Triangle: Open Main menu
Square: Open Skills menu
R1: Enter Solo Mode
R2: Select next character
R3: Position camera behind character
L1: Draw/sheath weapon
L2: Select previous character
L3: Change camera mode
Select: Open Map
Start: Pause game

Exploring-

      Exploring is really simple.  Just run around using the left stick.
When you come up to people you wanna talk to, hit X, select who you want
to talk to, and hit X again.  When you wanna search something go up to
it and hit X.  If anything is nearby the game'll say so.

Fighting-

      Combat in this game isn't all that complex.  You basically rush
the enemies and beat them into a pulp, making sure not to loose anyone
in the process.  Loosing Joseph is a VERY bad thing if you have a
summoned monster with you.  Upon Jospeh's death the monster'll turn on
you and you've gotta kill it.

      Magic is useful of course.  You'll be using the Heal spell a lot,
and I mean a lot.  Your summon monsters never seem to have a whole bunch
of HP and need to be healed constantly.  Protect is a very good spell
though.  Use Protect every time you encounter a boss, it really does
help.  When Joseph learns Flame Arrow and Fireball you're pretty much
set.  You can use these two spells in combination to seriously damage
enemies before you start your melee.

      Chain attacks though are the most important thing about fighting.
Those of you who've played Vagrant Story for PS1 will feel at home with
chains.  Chain attacks can be hard to master, but once you do it'll make
fighting a lot easier.  However, if you have a slow weapon equipped,
i.e. any two-handed weapon, this will through the timing of you chains
off.  This makes it harder to chain your attacks toghether.


Tutorials:

Basic Controls Tutorial-

      This tutorial will explain the basic controls for Summoner.  You
can quit this or any other tutorial at any time by pressing triangle.
Joseph can be moved using the left analog stick.  To move forward, push
the stick forward (away from you).  Pulling the stick back (toward you)
causes Joseph to move toward the camera.  Pushing the stick left or
right makes Joseph run in that direction.  While Joseph is running, the
camera automatically positions itself behind him.  You can also manually
control the camera using the right analog stick.  Moving the right stick
forward or backward zooms in the camera in or out, respectively.
Pushing left or right on the stick rotates the camera around Joseph.
The rotation can be reversed in the [Options] menu.  You can switch
camera modes by depressing (pressing down on) the left analog stick
[L3].  The following camera modes are available: Low- the camera remains
close to the ground and positions itself behind Joseph, unless you enter
a small indoor area.  High- the camera remains above Joseph in a three-
quarter view of the action.  This view is useful in comvat situations
involving many creatures.  Auto- the camera automatically switches
between High and Low views, depending on the situation.  This is the
default camera view.  Pressing down on the right analog stick [R3]
causes the camera to automatically swing behind Joseph if it has been
rotated away.  The [Start] button pauses the game at any time.

Dialogue Tutorial-

      This is Joseph's friend Mulik.  Joseph can talk to nearby friendly
characters by pressing X.  The game pauses.  A cursor appears under the
nearest character in range and a bubble appears over his or her head.
You can cycle through all characters in range with the left analog
stick.  Characters with important information have double exclamation
marks over their heads.  Once you have selected the character with whom
you would like to speak, press X again to initiate a conversation with
that character.  Go ahead and talk to Mulik.

      When Joseph is talking to a character, the dialogue appears in the
top half of the window.  The bottom half of the window contains a list
of relevant topics that Joseph can ask about.  When a topic has been
covered, it is removed from the topic list.  New topics are added to the
list as more information is uncovered.  Access to new topics can also be
gained after completing quests or talking to other charcters.  Mulik has
quit a bit to tell Joseph!  Go ahead and continue talking to him.  You
can stop a conversation at any time by choosing the "Farewell" topic or
pressing triangle.

      Remember that many characters in Summoner have impotant and
interesting things to say!  Talk to everyone you can.

Basic Combat Tutorial-

      This Orenian Scout is about to attack Joseph.  Joseph will have to
fight back.  You can attack enemies by pressing X when they are in
range.  When you press X, the game pauses and a cursor appears under the
nearest enemy in range.  You can cycle thrugh all enemies in range with
the left analog stick.  The red bar over the enemy represents its
current Hit Points (HP), which decrease as he takes damage.  After you
have selected the enemy you would attack, press X again.  Once a target
has been selected, Joseph automatically engages the enemy.  He continues
to fight until he or his foe runs out of HP, or you issue him another
command.  The red bar next to Joseph's portrait represents his current
HP.  If Joseph's HP drops to zero, he falls down, incapacitated and
unable to move or perform any action.  If everyone in your group is
incapacitated, the game ends and you must either reload from a saved
game or start a new game.  If an enemy attacks Joseph and you do not
respond, Joseph automatically draws his weapon and defends himself.
During combat, numbers appear over the characters' heads.  Numbers in
white represent damage to enemies.  Numbers in yellow represent damage
to Joseph and his friends.  Numbers in blue represnt percentage
modifiers to that character's attack.  You receive a bonus for attacking
a creature from above or behind and are penalized for attacking from
below.  The game will now unpause and the Scout will attack Jospeh.

      When the guard died, he dropped his weapon.  You can pick up
nearby items on the ground by pressing X.  You see a targeting cursor
like the one used to target characters, but it appears on the item that
is closest to you.  As with targeting characters, you can use the left
analog stick to change the targeted item.  During battle, Joseph may
take damage.  Joseph has a spell called Heal that he can cast to restore
HP to himself or others in his party.  You can access the spells menu by
pressing O.  Joseph can can also use healing potions that are in his
inventory.  You can access the Inventory screen by pressin triangle and
selecting the Inventory option from the menu.

Chain Attack Tutorial-

      During combat, Josph has the ability to perform chains of special
attacks.  Chain attacks can be used only in melee combat and cost
Ability Points (AP) to perform.  Notice the chain symbol that appears
over Joseph's head just as he is about to swing at his opponent.  Chain
attacks can be executed only while this symbol is visible.  To perform a
Chain Attack, press one of the four directional buttons: Up, Down, Left,
or Right.  The direction you choose determines which special attack
Joseph performs.  Pushing it Up causes Joseph to perform an Added Blow
attack.  If successful, this attack inflicts normal damage.  Pushing
Down causes Joseph to perform a Desperation attack.  If successful, this
attack inflicts damage proportional to the HPs Joseph has lost.  The
lower his remaining HPs, the more damage he inflicts.  Pushing Left
causes Joseph to perform a Confusion attack.  If successful, this attack
drains AP from the opponent.  Pushing Right causes Joseph to perform a
Push attack.  If successful, this attack pushes the opponent backward,
and gives Joseph more time to perform the next Chain Attack.  Once
Joseph has performed a Chain Attack often enough, he gains access to new
Chain Attacks.  You can assign these new Chain Attacks to the
directional buttons.  Go to the Skills menu to do this.  After each
successful Chain Attack, you are given a chance to perform another.
Your opponent cannot attack you while you are chaining attacks together.
Each Chain Attack you perform must be different from the previous one.
There is no limit to the number of attacks that may be chained together,
but the chain symbol appears for a shorter  period of time with each
successive attack.  If you attempt a Chain Attack before the chain
symbol appears or after is dissapears, the attack fails and the chain is
broken.  With practice though, you will be able to chain many attacks
together, giving the enemy no chance to strike back!  One more thing to
remember: Wielding a faster weapon makes performing Chain Attacks
easier.  It may be to your advantage to equip a faster weapon that does
less damage, if it enables you to chain more attacks together.

Level Up Tutorial-

      Joseph has reached experience level 2!  Experience is gained by
defeating enemies and completing quests.  When enough experience points
have been accumulated, Joseph will attain the next experience level.
Each time Joseph levels up, his maximum HPs and APs increase.  He also
gets Skill Points that can be used to improve his Skills.  A flashing
"+" symbol appears on Joseph's portrait if he has Skill Points to
distribute.  To distribute Skill Points, press triangle and choose the
Skills option from the menu.

Skill Points-

      From this screen (Skills) you can distribute Skill Points to
Skills that are available to Joseph.  On the right-hand side of the
screen is the full list of Skills that are at his disposal.  By
scrolling Up or Down, you can select the Skill you want to raise.
Pressing X raises the selected Skill by one point.  No Skill Level can
be higher than the character's current experiance level.  Skill points
assignments are permanent, so make sure you choose wisely before
pressing X.

Spells Tutorial-

      This is the Spells menu.  Along the top of the menu are the six
different circles of Spells: Heal, Dark, Energy, Holy, Fire, and Ice.
You can scroll between the various circles by moving left or right.
You can select Spells within a circle by moving up or down.  Circles in
which Joseph does not have any Spells are not available.  At level 1,
Joseph has access to the Heal Spell.  To cast Heal, press either X or O
when the Spell is highlighted.  A cursor appears below Joseph,
indicating that he is the current target of the Spell.  A window also
appears, listing the available targets for the Spell.  A Spell that
helps Joseph and his allies can be used only on them, while an offensive
Spell can target only enemies.  You can scroll through the target list
by moving up or down.  Once the target has been selected, press X or O
to cast the spell.  Using a Spell costs Ability Points (AP), represented
by the blue bar next to Joseph's portrait.  Characters recover AP slowly
over time or by drinking potions.  As Jospeh's Skill in a Spell circle
increases, he gains access to more powerful Spells in that circle.
Higher level Spells cost more AP than lower level ones.  You can see the
current level of your Spell circles by pressing triangle and choosing
the Skills option from the menu.

Ring Tutorial-

      You've just received your first summoning ring, the Ring of
Darkness!  Each summoning ring you obtain enables you to summon a
different creature.  For instance, with the Ring of Darkness you can
summon a Blackfire Elemental.  The experience level of the summoned
creature depends on how much power the corresponding ring has
accumulated.  Although you do not need to be wearing a summoning ring to
summon the corresponding creature, the ring gains power only while you
have it equipped.  Creatures cannot be summoned in town.  Also, once
you leave a level, any creature Joseph has summoned is removed from the
party.  Now open the Inventory screen and equip Joseph with the Ring of
Darkness.

      Joseph is now wearing the Ring of Darkness.  Whenever Joseph gains
experience, any summoning rings he is wearing gain power proportional to
the experience he gained.  The proportion of experience gained by
equipped rings depends on Joseph's Summon Skill.  The higher his Summon
Skill, the more power his summoning rings gain with each point of
experience.  Once a summoning ring has gained enough power, a second
creature becomes available for Joseph to summon.

V. Characters
-------------

Joseph: Joseph is a young man who was born with the mark of the Summoner
        and feels that his power is a curse instead of a blessing.  Nine
        years ago, raiders attacked his home village of Ceran.  To
        protect everything he loved, he summoned a demon to fight the
        raiders.  Because he was young, Joseph was not able to control
        the demon and it turned on the village.  Everyone was killed by
        the demon.  Overwhelmed by guilt, Joseph discarded his
        summonning ring in a well and swore never to use his powers
        again.  However, he could not run from his destiny.  Intent on
        killing him, Emperor Murod sends his army after him, forcing
        Joseph to use his powers once again.

Flece: Flece is a thief from the city of Lenele.  She is very gifted and
       is the favorite of Tancred, the King of Fleas.  Joseph meets
       Flece when he gets told off by some palace guards.  In exchange
       for his help she shows him the way into the royal palace.  Yago
       has her join Joseph when she locates him in the palace.

Rosalind: Rosalind is the daughter if Yago, Joseph's teacher.  However,
          Yago abandoned Rosalind and her mother in search of the boy
          with the mark of the Summoner.  Her mother died shortly after
          Yago leaving and so she blames you for her father leaving
          them.  She is a pupil at the Iona Monastery.  She is forced to
          join Joseph on his quest if she ever wants to become a monk of
          Iona.

Jekhar: Jekhar once was a friend of Joseph's when they both lived in
        Ciran.  When Jospeh unleashed the demon on the raiders, Jekhar
        lost his home and his entire family.  He swore on his brother's
        grave that if he ever saw Jospeh again he would have his
        revenge.  Jekhar is now a soldier in the Medevan Army.  King
        Belias VI orders Jekhar to help Joseph in defeating Emperor
        Murod.

In various sections I will be referring to the four main characters as
such:
Joseph (Jo), Jekhar (Je), Flece (Fl), Rosalind (Ro)

_______________________________________________________________________


VI. Walkthrough
---------------

      Well, here's the walkthrough.  At the beginning of each section
I've listed the place, shops, items, and quests that apply to the area.
For very large places with multiple areas, I've divided the walkthrough
into sub-sections.  The city of Lenele is good example of this.  Lenele
is made up of 10 areas, and 2 of them are dungeons.   I divided
everything up to help avoid confusion and for easy reference.

1. The Destruction of Your Second Home

Place: Masad Village
Items: 10 GP
       Revive Scroll
       3 GP
       Cleansing Tonic
       5 GP
	 10 GP
       Revive Scroll
       Blue Pants
       Cloth Gloves
       Tristan's Libation
       Recovery Tonic
Enemies: Orenian Scout
         Barbarian Fighter (Boss)
Quests: Aesik's Sword (Aesik)
        Find Yago (Nath)

      Once the opening cinema is finished you enter a basic controls
tutorial.  When you have finished reading the tutorial (or skipped it),
you now have control of Joseph.  Run around and get used to the controls
of the game.  You should bring up the Spells menu with the O button.  I
suggest this so you can get the magic tutorial out of the way.
	
      Whenever you're finished head southwest toward a villager
named Mulik.  Just before you reach him you'll enter the dialouge
tutorial.
	
      Now that that's over, you're free to explore a new area.  However,
not far ahead you'll come across an Orenian Scout attacking a villager.
This will begin the basic combat tutorial.  After you kill the scout
the game will tell you about picking up items that the enemy has
dropped.
	
      After that, walk a little further until you come across a man
named Aesik (he's crawling on the ground with his hands).  Talking to
him will give you the "Aesik's Sword" quest.
	
      Heading almost directly east from Aesik you can loop around the
area where you started.  Behind the barrels where you started will be
a dead villager 10 GP beside him.  There's also a Revive Scroll in the
crates next to the building a bit further from you.

      Head east and you'll see a scout harassing a villager.  After the
scout walks away, run him through.  Don't bother talking to the
villager, he doesn't like you.  On the other side of the building are
some barrels with 3 GP in them.

      Head north now and take the left path.  You'll go up the hill and
end up next to a barn.  Straight down the stone path will be a building
that's nothing more than some burnt beams.  Behind the house and to the
left along the fenceline you'll find a Cleansing Tonic.

      Continue to run around the village killing all the scouts in the
area.  When you get to the well examine it to find 5 GP.  At the eastern
edge of the village you'll a see a large building with crates on its
left and right sides.  On the left side you'll find a Revive Scroll,
and on the right 10 GP.

      From that house, head down the path on the right side of it.  When
you get the fork, look behind the hut and you'll find the Blue Pants.
Once you grab the Blue Pants take the right path.  Continue on until you
come to a small hut.  There are some Cloth Gloves on the left side and
Tristan's Libation in the barrels on the other side.

      Now head south and then east along the riverbank.  After awhile
you'll come across three people talking in front of the bridge.  Talk to
Nath and he'll tell you to cross the bridge and take a boat to leave
Masad.  He'll also mention that Yago, you're old teacher, lives in
Lenele.  Finding out about Yago will give the "Find Yago" quest.

      Before you go across the bridge make sure you save, especially
if you haven't done so yet.  When you cross the bridge a short cinema
will play where you see the Barbarian Fighter, the first boss of the
game.
	
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boss Fight: Barbarian Fighter

      The Barabarian Fighter isn't all that tough.  If you took the time
to kill every Scout you'll be at level 3 which helps.  If you're also
good at chain attacks you can kill him without him getting more than
one turn.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Once you've dispatched of the Barbarian, grab the Recovery Tonic
in the crates.  From there just head straight toward the boat.

      After another cinema you'll find yourself on the world map.  It is
very important that the first thing you do is save.  The reason is
because if you get into an Encounter, you might not survive.  Right now
you just aren't strong enough to take on those kinds of fights (being
alone doesn't help either).  So if you get into an encounter RUN LIKE
HELL!  There is however one exception to this.  If there are Green
Bacites in the Encounter you can take them on.  Just try not to fight
more than one at once just to be on the safe side.

      Well anyways, back to the world map.  The game has already put you
facing southwest toward Lenele so just head in a straight line.  Lenele
isn't far from Masad so don't worry about getting lost.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2. The City of the Gods

Place: Lenele
Areas: Lenele Outskirts
       Lenele Marketplace
       Lenele Old City
       Lenele Crown District
       Lenele Temple Plaza
       Temple of Urath
       Lenele Sewers (Dungeon)
       Lenele Palace Aqueduct (Dungeon)
       Lenele Palace
       Lenele Palace Plaza

      Welcome to Lenele, AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!  Let me just say one
thing, this city is HUGE!  Lenele is made up of ten areas.  Some of
these areas are pretty big and can be confusing.  Not to mention that
there are several shops of each kind and a TON of NPCs walking about.
So, for your sake (and mine) I've didvided this part of the walkthrough
into sub-sections.  I'll cover each area in a seperate sub-section.
This way it'll be easier for you to find things for you.  Also the
amount of NPCs brings up a point I'd like to make.  It's unncessary to
talk to every NPC.  The only ones you really need to talk to are the
ones with the double exclamation points over there heads.  They're the
ones that can provide you with useful information, give you quests, are
parts of quests, or are merchants.  So anyways, on with the game.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2a. At the Edge of Vastness

Place: Lenele Outskirts
Shops: Weaponsmith x1
       Item x1
Items: Healing Draught
       20 GP
       Fiery Falchion
       Recovery Tonic
       Icicle Rune
Quests: Durgan's Lucky Charm (Durgan)
        Seeds of Aahur (Beelon)
        Crazy Iven (Crazy Iven)

      At the Outskirts you start at a stone bridge.  From there head
straight till you come to some stairs that lead down to a dock.  On the
dock you'll find Durgan who gives you the "Durgan's Lucky Charm" quest.
This quest is so long and such a pain in the arse that I'm putting the
solution in the Quests section.
	
      Well now that you've talked to Durgan, climb back up the stairs.
Head toward the crates straight ahead and grab the Healing Draught.
Then go southeast to some crates that are to the left of a wagon to find
20 GP.  Now walk along the wall of the city heading southwest and you'll
see two NPCs.  The one closest to the wall is Beelon who gives you "The
Seeds of Aahur" quest.  Next to the canopy is Crazy Iven who gives you
the "Crazy Iven" quest.  Head left from Iven and there'll be a platform
with a fish hanging from it.  Examine the fish and you'll get the Fiery
Falchion which ends the "Crazy Iven" quest.

      Northeast from those two you'll find a Recovery Tonic in the group
of crates.  In the southeast corner, you'll find a weaponsmith.  In the
crates nearby you'll also find an Icicle Rune.

      Head for the exit to the where you'll find an item shop and
another NPC.  The NPC goes by the name The Great Ragneli and he gives
you the "Ragneli's Robber's" quest.  *Note: Every quest that can be
finished on the world map will have it's solution in the Quests
section.  Now you're done with the Outskirts and are ready to move to
the Lenele Marketplace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2b. Dont't Forget Your Coin Purse

Place: Lenele Marketplace
Shops: Weaponsmith x2
       Armorer x1
       Item x2
Items: 15 GP
       Healing Draught
       Lightning Rune
Quests: The Sword of Jarl (Jarl)
        Cerval's Game (Mercer)

      Well here's the Marketplace.  This area's kinnda dissapointing.  I
say this because it's so huge but there are only a couple of shops.  I
think they sould've taken every shop in the city and put it here.  Oh
well.  Let's get it on!

      To your left you'll find a big area full of barrels, crates, and
carts.  All that's in here though is 15 GP.  To your right is an even
bigger section filled with merchant's booths.  Here there's two item
shops and one weaponsmith.  In the southern part of this section you'll
find a Healing Draught in some crates next to a red booth.  Also in this
section are some stairs that lead down to the river.  Don't worry about
that now, the path leads to the Sewers and we don't need to go there
yet.

      As you attempt to cross the bridge into the southern part of the
Marketplace you come across Jekhar.  Through a rather unpleasant
conversation he tells you that Yago is councellor to Prince Sornehan.

      After your through talking with Jekhar, continue across the
bridge.  At the other side there's a soldier on the right.  This is
Earis, the nephew of Aesik.  Giving him Aesik's sword completes the
quest and it gets you a Bastard Sword and 100 XP.

      Now we're going to continue down the right side of the street and
circle back to the bridge.  So, continuing on the right side, you'll
come across Jarl the Smith.  Jarl gives you "The Sword of Jarl" quest.

      Continue down the right side until you get to the bridge.  Turn
left, and go down the short street in front of you.  At the end of the
street you'll find a weaponsmith.  Krys the Lantern Maker is also there
but I don't know his purpose just yet.

      Leave the street and go down what is NOW the right side of the
main street.  Not far away you'll find Mercer the Tailor.  Talking to
Mercer gives you the "Cerval's Game" quest.  Continuing on, the main
street eventually turns left.  At the turn there's a  side street to
the right but there's nothing down there.  Also, standing at the turn
is Bibrus the Bookseller, remember where he is 'cause he's part of a
quest.

      Turning left you'll find a 'L' shaped street to the right, right
before the bridge.  Down here is an armorer.  Where the street turns to
form the 'L' you'll find a Lightning Rune in some barrels.  Take the
bridge here to go to Lenele Old City.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2c. Rat City

Place: Lenele Old City
Shops: Armorer x1
       Item x1
       Jewelry x1
Quests: Shards of the Ghimaadi (Varyssa)
        The Infestation (Merden)
        The Salt Smuggler's (Pedrog)
        The Merchant of Orenia(Aravind)
        The Beggar's Eyes (A Beggar With No Eyes)
        The Rag Doll (Weeping Butcher)
        The Salamanka's Tongue (Apothecary)

      For this part I'm gonna cover the southern section of the Old City
first and then the northern part.  Because of all the alleys here it can
get a little confusing to navigate.  Just refer to the in-game map if
you get confused.

      To your left from where you start there's an Item shop.  On the
northeastern side of the Keep nearby you'll find Varyssa.  Varyssa gives
you the "Shards of the Ghimaadi" quest.  Also, walking around the Keep
is Gebbin the Pawnbroker who is part of the "Durgan's Lucky Charm"
quest.  Southwest from the Keep you'll find Ivas the Gambler who's also
part of the same quest.  Toward the end of that same street you come
across a '[' shaped alley.  Down here you'll find Merden who gives you
"The Infestation" quest.  This quest is a good way to make some extra
money.  For every Bacite Tail you bring Mercer you get 50 GP.  At this
point in the game where money is very hard to come by this quest is
extremely helpful.  At the end of the street you'll find an Item shop.
On the left side of that building you'll see a thief named Pedrog.
Pedrog'll give you "The Salt Smugglers" quest.

      On the raised part of the Old City you'll find an Item shop near
the Keep.  There's a street west of the stairs that lead to the raised
part of the city.  Down this street you'll find Dagis the Forger.  This
street will come to a dead end further on.  Here you see Starvus the
Skulk.  After you get Flece, you can come back here and get him to give
the key to the door he's guarding.  This door leads to Tancred's Haven.
This small area is covered in sub-section 2d.

      In the north section of the Old City, right next to the middle
bridge to the Marketplace is an armorer.

      In the northwestern part you'll see the burnt down ruins of two
houses.  In the ruins of the larger house you'll see two men talking.
Talk to the one named Aravind and you'll get "The Merchant of Orenia"
quest.  Just east of the south side of the smaller house is A Beggar
With No Eyes.  He'll give you "The Beggar's Eyes" quest.  A little south
of the beggar is a Weeping Butcher.  The Weeping Butcher'll give you
"The Rag Doll" quest.  If you talk to the Apothecary (his store is next
to the southern most bridge) after getting "The Beggar's Eyes" quest,
he'll give you "The Salamanka's Tongue" quest.

      Well, your done here for now.  Leave the Old City and cross the
Marketplace to the northern bridge into the Crown District.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2d. The King of Fleas

Place: Tancred's Haven
Shops: Weaponsmith x1
Items: Health Tonic
       Health Tonic
Quests: Tancred's Assassin (Mahri)

      This area is made up of a couple of rooms.  From where you start
you can find a Health Tonic in the wall to the left.  Around the corner
is Gus.  He'll sell yoo a couple weapons, but you can also sell him
almost everything in your Inventory.  Round the next corner and go up
the ramp, turn left and go through the door.  In here is Mahri the
Crooked.  Mahri'll give you the "Tancred's Assassin" quest.  There's also
a Health Tonic in the crate across from the doorway.  You're done here
so feel free to leave.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2e. Snob Hill

Place: Lenele Crown District
Shops: Armorer x2
       Jewelry x1
Items: 10 GP
Quests: The Encyclopedia of Heresies (Zefnat)
        Pomporo's Heirloom (Pomporo)

      The Crown District isn't as big as the Old City, and it's a lot
nicer.  Of couse it can still be a little confusing at times.  The Crown
District also happens to be the gateway to the Lenele Temple Plaza,
which is right next to the castle.  On with the show!

      If you took the right bridge to the Crown District there should be
a small park with an open theater to your right.  We're gonna work our
way down to the south, stopping at all the important parts of course.

      From where you stand, you can go straight ahead and you'll have
three choices where you wanna go.  To the right is the park, but there's
nothing there.  Stright ahead is Torras the Jeweler, part of the
"Durgan's Lucky Charm" quest.  Right now, we're gonna go right.

      After a short distance there'll be a street to the right.  Not far
from that is a 'T' intersection.  Going right on the side street is
pointless so go to the 'T' intersection and take a left.  Here you'll
see Zefnat the Scholar.  Zefnat'll give you "The Encyclopedia of
Heresies" quest.

      Now, turn around and go straight.  The path turns left and there
you'll a jewelry shop on the left side.  Continue on and you'll be off
the raised section of the Crown District.  Once again you have three
ways to go.  To the right is a well with 10 GP inside, but that path
leads you back north.  Left leads you to Pomporo who gives you the
"Pomporo's Heirloom" quest.  Going straight takes you south which is
where we need to go.

      Once you head south it will eventually lead to a large open area.
The white stone path leads to the Lenele Temple Plaza to the west.
Continuing south and taking the street to the left, will take you to an
armorer.  Another armorer can be found in the southwestern corner of the
area.

      Now you're done with the Crown District.  Head back to the white
stone path and go to the Lenele Temple Plaza.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2f. On the Church's Doorstep

Place: Lenele Temple Plaza

      There really isn't much to do here.  You can go left and then
cross the bridge to trigger a cutscene and get Flece.  However, let's
head right and go to the Temple of Urath.  There we can get another
quest, yeah you read right, another quest.  I told you this place had a
ton of them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2g. The House of Urath

Place: Temple of Urath
Items: Blue Glass Shard
Quests: Elodach the Initiate (Jerve)

      From where you start, you can go straight.  That way leads to the
Hierophant behind the altar.  He'll tell you about the history of the
world.  That, however, is not why I brought you here.

      At the starting point head left to the second room.  To the left
of the top staircase, next to the double doors, is the Blue Glass
Shard.  Head up two more rooms and climb the stairs to find Jerve the
Elder.  He'll give you the "Elodach the Initiate" quest.

      You're done here so go back to the Temple Plaza.  Once you're
there head all the way back down the stairs and turn right at the end
(or left if you took the right staircase).  This will trigger that
cutscene I mentioned earlier.  After it's over you'll find yourself in
the Lenele Sewers.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2h. Nothing Like the Smell of Raw Sewage in the Morning

Place: Lenele Sewers & Lenele Palace Aqueduct
Items: Green Glass Shards
       Signet Ring
       Blinding Buckler
       Rag Doll
       Chunk of Salt
       Sewer Grate Key
       Silk Garments
       Frozen Club
Enemies: Baby Bacite
         Bacite Shaman
         Broken Brass Golem
         Brown Bacite
         Cerval
         Green Bacite
         Iron Golem (Boss)
         Medevan Thieve

      It's a good thing the PS2 can't reproduce the smell of your
surroundings.  If it did I'd through this game out the window.  Anyways,
here's the sewers, the first dungeon of the game.  The only hard enemy
here are the Medevan Thieves, and that's only if you fight more than one
at a time.  Alright, time to stomp some monsters.

      Once you're in the sewers the game takes you through another
tutorial.  When that's over, you should consider turning around and
buying Flece some equipment.

      Whenever you're ready to move on, proceed down the entrance
tunnel.  To your right is a Brass Golem.  He'll tell you about his kind
and warn you about the Broken Brass Golems.

      After talking to the Brass Golem, continue down the tunnel.  Not
too far away you'll run into an intersection.  Left is a dead end (at
least it is for now, remember this place), straight ahead is a Broken
Brass Golem, and right is the path you want to go on.  Naturally, take
care of the Golem and then continue down the tunnel.  When the tunnel
curves you'll run into a wimpy Baby Bacite.  A few more steps from the
Baby Bacite will be an intersection.  There's a Golem to the left.

      Further down the main tunnel will be a group of 4 Baby Bacite's,
quiver with fear (yeah right).  Not far from there will be another
intersection, we'll come back here in a second.  Right go forward and
smash the two Golems at the end.  Now you can go back to the
intersection and turn left.

      Once in the next room you'll see sewage pouring down from the
ceiling.  That's just gross.  There's also 2 Brown Bacite's in the room.
When you've taken care of them make sure to grab the tails.  Now, the
room that you're in has four paths to take.  The left and right paths
lead to rooms just like this one.  The one straight ahead is blocked
off by two gates.  Right now go down the left path.

      Two Green Bacites on are the left, you know what to do.  After
claiming your trophies go down the right path from where you entered.
Up here you'll meet 2 Brass Golems that talk of history and opening
gates.  Once you're through with talking to them, go to the area right
behind the Golems and find 2 Green Bacites.  Head right further into the
room and you'll see 3 Brass Golems standing in front of some cranks.
These Golems control the gates that the other two spoke of.  For now,
get all but the Golem on the left to open their gates.

      Now leave the room and go left.  Continue going straight in the
next room.  In the room after that dispatch of the 3 Baby Bacites.  Both
the ways you have open to you are dead ends.  Straight ahead you'll find
the Green Glass Shards, and left are 2 Broken Brass Golems.  In the room
with the Broken Golems, there's also two switches on the wall.  The left
one can't be used but the right one opens up the gate at the very
beginning that I told you to remember.

      Head back to the beginning and proceed down the now open path.
Not too far down there'll be two Green Bacites guarding a hole in the
wall.  Once you've eliminated them don't go down the path they were
guarding.  Instead, go through the tunnel that's directly across from
the hole in the wall.  This narrow tunnel branches to the left where
there's a large room.  In here is a Brown and a Green Bacite.  You'll
also find the Signet Ring which is part of the "Pomporo's Heirloom"
quest.  Backtrack to the hole in the wall that the Bacites were guarding
now.

      Go through the hole now.  What follows is a series of ramps
leading down to another hole in the wall.  Along the way you're going
to run into some Baby, Brown, and Green Bacites.  There's also a couple
of Bacite Shamans here.  It's best to rush the Shamans because they can
cast Lightning on you.

      When you get to the bottom, go through the next hole.  This area
is a large chamber where the Bacites apparently live.  There's 3 Green,
1 Brown, and 2 Bacite Shamans to take care of here.  In two of the green
huts you'll find a Blinding Buckler and the Rag Doll.

      You're done here so now backtrack to the tunnel that's blocked by
two gates.

      At this point you're gonna have to split Joseph and Flece up.
This next part can only be down with two people.  So, enter Solo Mode
(press R1 in case you forgot) and take control of Flece.  Have her run
back up to the room with the Golmes and the cranks.  Talk to the left
Golem and have him open Gate A1.  The game'll start jabbering on but
just skip it, I already told you the same thing it will.

      Take control of Joseph now and kill the Brown Bacite.  Position
Joseph between the two gates and switch back to Flece.  Have Flece make
the Golem open Gate B1.  Once that's done take her down to where Joseph
is.  She can't join him now because of the gate between them, but you at
least have her closer for when the two can reunite.

      Switch back to Joseph again and go straight (not that you have
much choice in the matter).  Kill the Broken Golem and go to where 3
more Golems with cranks are.  Speak to the one in the middle and get him
to open Gates A1 and B1.  Exit Solo Mode and eventually Flece'll catch
up with you.

      Talk to the other 2 Golems and have them open their gates.  The
first Golem opens a gate to your left, which goes to the Palace
Aqueduct.  We want to go to the aquedute, but not right now.  The Golem
in the back opens a gate behind you.  Go to that gate and take out the 2
Broken Golems.  Continuing down this way only leads to an exit at the
Outskirts so don't bother.  Turn around and go back to the 3 Golems and
head straight.

      As you continue, you'll come across 2 more Broken Golems.  After
the second Golem though are 3 Medevan Thieves around the corner.  Heal
the characters and save your game.  If the three surround you it might
be all over for you.  Now, what you need to do is try to fight them one
at a time.  If you have Flame Arrow you should use on the thief closest
to you.  Make sure he's at a fair distance from the others or they'll
chase after you as well.  After you've managed to take care of the 3
thieves you can pick up the Chunk of Salt and the Sewer Grate Key.
Continue down the tunnel and kill the Broken Golem in your way.

      At the end of the path, near the Old City exit, is Cerval.  He's
part of the "Cerval's Game" quest.  Run him through and grab the Silk
Garments.

      Now here's the deal.  In the Palace Aqueduct there's a boss fight
and it's not all that easy.  If you feel bold enough, you can run back
to the Aqueduct and fight the boss.  Or, you can leave through the Old
City exit which'll put you right next to Merden where you can exchange
those Bacite Tails for GP.  With that money you can buy better equipment
for Joseph and Flece.  Going back into the Sewers killing everything
multiple times wouldn't be a bad idea either.  Plus, you've just
finished "The Salt Smuggler's" quest which gives you 900 GP.  The choice
is yours, so make it.

      Whenever you're ready to move on, go to the Palace Aqueduct.  In
the first room you'll find a Brass Golem who's just walking around in
circles.  The next room however is where the boss fight takes place.
Heal your party, cast Protect, make sure Joseph's AP is full, save your
game, now step into the fray.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boss Fight: Iron Golem
            Broken Brass Golem x2

      After a cutscene the fight'll begin.  All you've gotta do is smash
the Iron Golem and the 2 Broken Brass Golems.  That part isn't too
terrible a task.  The thing that makes this fight difficult are those 4
blue tentacles.  Those stupid things swipe at you constantly, causing
your swings to stop and killing the spell you just selected to cast.

      Anyway, the first thing you should do is nothing.  Yes, I did say
nothing.  The reason is because the Iron Golem will come at you on its
own.  The two Broken Golems will stay where they are as long as you
don't approach them.  When the Iron Golem makes it up to you just hammer
away at it.  It takes awhile to kill it since it has very good defense.
When the Iron Golem collapses into a pile of junk, approach the two
Broken Golems and take them out.  It's that easy.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Once the Iron Golem falls apart, continue west.  A Frozen Club
lies right on the path just inches away from a Broken Golem.  Go into
the next room, climb up the steps, and circle around to go to Lenele
Palace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2i. Mission: Yago

Place: Lenele Palace
Items: Amethyst
       Healing Draught.
       Archer's Ring
       50 GP
       Fire Arrow Tract
       Amethyst
       Yago's Key
       Yon's Amulet
       Servant's Blouse
       Servant's Leggings
       Servant's Boots
       Servant's Gloves
       Food
       500 GP
       Ring of Darkness
Quests: The Amulet of Prince Yon (Flece)
        Find the Ring of Light (Yago)
        Find the Ring of Stone (Yago)
        Find the Ring of Fire (Yago)
        Defeat the Emperor Murod (Yago)

      Your mission, should you choose to accept it, infiltrate Lenele
Palace and locate Yago, a.k.a. Lord Yago, Counsellor to Prince Sornehan.
Reconnaisance reports show that Yago's chambers reside on the third
floor of Lenele Palace.  The halls of the palace and Yago's chambers
reside under 24 hour guard.  You must find an alternate means to slip
into the palace undetected and locate the old beggar.  Should you be
captured, this agency will deny all knowledge of your actions.  This
walkthrough will self-destruct in 5 seconds.

      When you start off, Flece will tell Joseph to stay behind while
she goes into the castle.  You also learn that she's here to steal an
amulet for a man named Drego.

      Now, you have three ways to go.  Straight and left lead down the
same path where you'll find an Amethyst.  Right takes you down a path
that leads to a dead end.  If you hit the X button you can opan a panel
in the wall.  You'll also find a Healing Draught hidden in a barrel.
Head up the stairs to the first floor.

      From the top of the stairs, turn the camera around and go through
the left door.  Go through the next door and you'll be in a hall.
There's a Palace Servant here who'll tell you where Yago is.  Go through
the doorway to your right and climb up the spiral staircase.

      This is where things start to get difficult.  The room you're in
now has its door closed.  Directly across the hall is another room where
a guard comes out of.  This guard's patrol goes down the hall and into
the room to the left of the huge set of double doors.  In that same
room where the guard's patrol ends, another begins.  The second guard's
patrol goes through the first set of double doors, and the hall and
just beyond the next set of doors.  Along this guard's patrol line,
there are two rooms to hide in.  Both rooms are just beyond and to the
right of a set of doors.

      Just down the hall is last patrolling guard on the second floor.
His patrol takes him from just before the next set of doors all the way
down to the end of the hall.  Along his patrol line there are two rooms
to hide in, both on the right side as well.  Across the hall from the
last room you can hide in is the room with the staircase going up.  At
the end of the hall is a stationary guard who is facing you.  To your
right of him is a bunk room with an Archer's Ring near the fireplace.
You cannot get to this room until later so don't try it.  Anyway, go up
the stairs to the third floor.

      In this room you'll find 50 GP in the desk in front of the stairs.
Now you'll have to be careful when leaving this room.  There's a guard
whose patrol takes him to the corner to the right and he can see you if
you leave.  When the coast is clear, exit the room but don't go out into
the large hall.  Two guards patrol this area, one the top half, the
other the bottom.  If you go right there are two rooms you can hide in,
the first door on bottom and the second door on the top.  In the room
on the bottom is a Fire Arrow Tract.  In the second part of that room
there's an Amethyst in the corner.

      When you can, leave this room and go down the hall that's straight
and slightly to the left.  There's a guard by the stairs but he isn't
facing you (just don't get close to him).  Go down this ']' shaped hall
and you'll see a cutscene between King Belias and a woman in a white
cloak.  Once this is over, go into the room and pick up Yago's Key.

      Exit the room now and turn right.  Walk into the corner where the
bucket is.  If you Examine this area you should be able to pick up Yon's
Amulet through the wall (glad to see that one of this games' numerous
bugs actually does some good).  Turn around now and go across the large
hall then turn left when you get past the next room.  Yago's room is the
door on the right.  Enter the room and talk to Yago.  This starts a
cutscene which then leads into a bunch of dialogue.  Yago gives four new
quests (like that's all we need).  Once your done talking to him,
another tutorial begins.

      When you're done, leave the Palace and go through the Palace
Plaza.  Now, the next place you have to go to is the Iona Monastery,
which is east of Lenele.  The walk there is pretty long and you're going
to run into several Encounters.  If you haven't already, I suggest you
buy a Long Sword and Round Shield for Joseph and a Crossbow for Flece.
Since you now can summon you have two close-range fighters and Flece is
better suited as a ranged fighter.  Whether or not you have the money
for this, you should go down to the Sewers again and build up the power
of your new ring.  This will make the Blackfire Elemental stronger, and
trust me, it needs to be stronger.  You can also take this time to go to
Tancred's Haven if you haven't done so yet.  Before you leave, you might
wan to buy High Leather Boots, Leather Gloves, Silk Breeches, and a
Quilted Robe.  The reason is because you'll recruit Rosalind at Iona.
There isn't an armorer in Iona so if you don't buy these things Rosalind
will have really bad defense.

      Whenever you're ready to leave, exit to the World Map.  Iona is to
the far east.  While you're out here you might want to try and complete
steps for some of the quests.

Encounters you've finally made it.  This is one places where I wish
there was a Free-look button.  This whole place feels calm, unlike the
chaotic streets of Lenele.  Enough of that, onward!

      When you finally reach the Iona Monastery on the east coast,
you'll watch another movie.  After the movie you'll find yourself on the
docks.  In the crates in front of you there's a Recovery Tonic.  Just
beyond the docks is a house to the right.  Emmah, the lady in front, is
a mix of a weaponsmith and an item shop.  There's another house to the
left of Emmah.  The barrels next to this house hide a Cleansing Tonic.

      Return to Emmah's house and go right.  At the end of this path is
a rather intimidating looking Lift Golem.  Guess what he does.  Take the
elevator up to the next level.  Right outside the elevator is the Keeper
of the Gate.  If you talk to him he'll tell you that Abbot Laurent, the
leader here, can be found in the upper courtyard.

      Go through the gate and you'll find Brother Eamon.  Offer to help
him find the person he's looking for and he'll give you the "Novice
Sama" quest.  Head right and go through the double doors.  You'll find
a Health Tonic in the barrels under the stairs.  Go up the stairs now
and you'll be in a room full of bunks with chests at their foots.  In
the third chest is a Revive Scroll.  Exit this area back to the area
Brother Eamon is in.

      Continue past the kids chopping wood and up the stairs.  To the
right of the stairs is another set of stairs that go to the battlements.
Go up the stairs now.  To the right is Sister Miala of the Iomani.
She'll give you the "Miala of the Iomani" quest.  To the left is Sister
Qelah.  Qelah'll give you the "Qelah of the Muthavi" quest.  Continue to
the left until you get to the stairs at the end.  Your now in the
upper courtyard.

      From the base of the stairs, go right and you'll see a tower with
a pair of double doors.  We'll come back here in a minute, right now go
to the left side of the tower.  Climb the stairs there to the
battlements.  Up here is a Monk who'll give you "The Tome of Gahnis"
quest.  Go back to the double doors now and enter the tower.

      Inside the tower you can find 30 GP in a crate under the stairs.
When you go up the stairs another movie will start.  Abbot Laurent will
force Rosalind to join your party at this time.  Rosalind will inform
you that the Ring of Light might be found in the catacombs below the
Crypt of Kings.  You'll have to talk to Brother Ovaard to gain access
to the crypt.

      Once the movie sequence is over, examine the chest closest to the
abbot to find a Citrine.  Leave the tower now to go back to the upper
courtyard.  Brother Ovaard is the only person in the courtyard that has
the double exclamation points.  Talk to Ovaard and ask him to give you
the key to the crypt.  Ovaard will tell you that the way to the crypt is
on the minor library.

      Now that you have the key, go through the narrow passageway to a
pair of staircases.  Climb up the steps to the top.  Up here is Sister
Bilan of Nahul who'll give you the "Tathal the Wanderer" quest.  Go
through the next narrow corridor and you'll come to an area with three
staircases.  Straight ahead lies the Great Library.  You can't go there
so don't bother.  To the left is a little park.  Brither Wid, who gives
you the "Wid the Terrified" quest, can be found up here.  Novice Sama
is also wandering around up here.  Urath's Feather can be found in the
very back.  To the right you'll find the minor library through a set of
double doors.

      Inside the minor library you'll find a Lightning Tract in the
bookcase straight ahead.  The bookcase to the right of that on hides a
Icicle Tract.  Right where the room starts to narrow there is a
bookcase on the right and left walls.  In the right bookcase is Volume
67 and the left one has a Fire Arrow Tract.  The second to last
bookcase on the right wall has a Tome of Revive inside.  The last
bookcase on the left is the way to the Iona Catacombs.  Also at the far
end of the library is a Wise Monk.  He'll give you a vital clue to the
puzzle that awaits you in the Catacombs.

      Whenever you're ready, head down to the Iona Catacombs.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3a. The Tomb of a God

Place: Iona Catacombs
Items: Axe of Ikus
       Red Glass Shard
       Sharp Dagger
       Precise Falchion
       Health Tonic
       Sword of Spirits
       Ring of Light
Enemies: Bone Knight
         Bone Mage
         Bone Servant
         Carados (Boss)

      Alright, time to get the Ring of Light.  Prepare to fight a lot
of the undead.  Speaking of prepare, don't forget to equip Rosalind
with the equipment you bought for her in Lenele.  Let's do it!

      At the beginning you'll find yourself in the crypt.  The only
problem is you can't go on until you solve the puzzle.  For those of
you that want to solve it yourself, don't forget what the Wise Monk in
the minor library said.  For those of you that just wanna get on with
it, refer to the Puzzle Solutions section for the answer.

      When you're done with the puzzle, go down the newly revealed
steps.  At the bottom of the steps you'll come out in the body of
Vadagar.  Going left you'll come up against a Bone Knight.  To the right
is a long corridor, that's where we really wanna go.  Down this corridor
you'll come across several Bone Servants and 2 Bone Knights.

      At the end of the corridor you'll come to a fork.  Both paths
lead to the same place eventually.  What you should do is take the left
path.  I say this for one reason, Rosalind.  She's weaker than Joseph
and Flece so she needs all the XP she can get.  Also, you'll find the
Axe of Ikus lying on the ground.  Except for one small part, the left
path is entirely on dirt.

      When you come to the area mentioned above, go right.  After a
long way down you'll come to a room with a big ball resting on a pillar.
Examine the pillar and the ball with begin to float and glow blue.  Turn
around now and back down the corridor.  Continue on until you come to a
large room with three paths.  The path to the right of where you are is
the way you would've come if you'd taken the right path at the fork.
The path closest to you leads to the Ring of Light, but we're not ready
to go down there yet.  Right now, go down the path that's straight ahead
and to the left.

      Down this path you'll come across a bridge with parts of it torn
up.  There are several Bone Knights here so you'll have to use a little
more strategy than normal.  Further on down the corridor is a room with
a long flight of stairs.  At the top is another ball resting on a
pillar.  Obviously, examine the pillar to trigger the ball.  The Red
Glass Shard is also on the ground next to the pillar.  Backtrack now to
the large room with three paths.

      Once you're in the large room, head down the path that's to your
right.  Down this corridor you'll come to Sir Erthgi of Iona.  Erthgi
will tell you that you can't go forward until you solve the riddle of
this place.  You already took care of that when you activated the two
balls on the pillars.  A little further down, the mouth of the serpent
will open.  This is when you need to do the usual boss
fight preparation routine (Full HP & AP, Save, cast Protect).  Whenever
you're ready, step forward and meet the boss.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boss Fight: Carados
            Bone Mage x2

      After a short cinema the boss fight'll begin.  Carados himself
isn't difficult.  What makes this fight tricky is that you get ambushed
by 2 Bone Mages from behind.  Taking care of the two Mages is the most
important thing in the beginning.  Have everyone except Joseph attack
Carados while you take care of the mages.  Once you've taken the Mages
out join the fight against Carados.  Carados should fall shortly after
Joseph joins the fight.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

      For beating Carados, you should get a Sharp Dagger, Precise
Falchion, Health Tonic, and the Sword of Spirits.  Cross the bridge
to the altar and receive the Ring of Light.  You're done here so leave
the Catacombs.  Before you leave the Monastery though, give the Axe of
Ikus to Brother Wid.  You're now done at the Monastery so leave when you
want to.  Be warned though, when you leave the Monastery you'll run into
an Encounter with a tough boss in it.  Make sure to save as soon as you
get to the World Map.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

4. The Undead Rider

Place: World Map-Encounter
Enemies: Bone Mage
         Bone Servant
         Ghost Rider (Boss)

      Get ready for the hardest challenge you've faced so far.  Murod
has sent one of his Four Riders to eliminate you.  After only taking a
few steps on the World Map you'll run into an Encounter.  A short cinema
will play and the fight will begin.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boss Fight: Ghost Rider
            Bone Servant
            Bone Mage

      By himself Ghost Rider's a punk, but he also summons Bone Servants
and Bone Mages during the first part of the battle.  When the battle
starts summon the Blackfire Elemental immediately.  Charge Ghost Rider
after that point 'cause by now he's already picking on Flece or Rosalind
(it's usually Rosalind).  Once you get get Ghost Rider down to 3/4 of
his life he'll hop off his horse and start attacking you with his
scythe.  Rush him again and evetually he'll run away.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

      When you've taken care of Ghost Rider you're free to leave the
Encounter area.  Head west toward Lenele now.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

5. Bow to Your King

Place: Lenele
Shops: Weaponsmith x4
       Armorer x4
       Items x4
       Jewelry x2
Quests: Torva's Magic Lute (Torva)
        The Lord Chamberlain's Men (Torval)

      When you enter Lenele another cinema will play.  We're here to
report back to Yago and end the "Find the Ring of Light" quest.  You can
also finish up a few more quests.

      One of the quests you can receive is in the Marketplace.  Next to
the middle bridge leading to the Crown District is Torva.  Talking to
him will get you the "Torva's Magic Lute" quest.

      Another quest you can now get can be found in the Crown District.
In the park with the open theater you'll find Torval.  He'll give you
"The Lord Chaimberlain's Men" quest.

      Once you've returned the items to complete the "Shards of the
Ghimaadi, Elodach the Initiate, and The Encyclopedia of Heresies"
quests, go to the Palace.  Yago can be found where you left him on the
second floor.  Approaching him starts a long dialouge sequence.  Follow
Yago into the Great Hall.  Talk to King Bellias and eventually a
cutscene will play.  After the cutscene is over you now have Jekhar.
Before you leave the Palace, talk to Prince Sornehan first.  Sornehan
is the man in black to the left of King Bellias.  Sornehan will tell you
to go speak to the Hierophant in the Temple of Urath.  Leave the Palace
now and go to the Temple.

      At the Temple, you'll find the Hierophant behind the altar.  Speak
to him and ask for the Blade of Tarun.  You can now leave Lenele.  Make
sure to upgrade everyones equipment before you leave.

      When you go to the World Map head southwest.  Your goal is the
really big beige mountain.  As you approach it you'll eventually enter
an Encounter with 3 Khosani Warriors.  Show the Warrior the dagger and
he'll escort you to Saanavarah.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

6. Children of Vadagar

Place: City of the Khosani
Shops: Weaponsmith x1
       Armorer x1
       Items x3
Quests: The Fate of Rhuka (Keeper of Lore)
        Secrets of Dakhanim (Ilaru the Priestess)

      Here we are, Saanavarah.  This place is just a big cave with a few
buildings.  Even though it's small, the city looks neat.  Well, on with
the show.

      After the short movie you'll find yourself talking to the Guardian
of the Stone Portal.  When the dialogue ends you just just follow the
Guardian.  Nobody here that's worth talking to will help you so don't
bother.  Enter the chamber that opens and talk to the Ulsadana.  The
Ulsadana tells you that you have to pass the Ordeal before the Khosani
will help you.  When you're done talking, leave the chamber and you'll
talk to the Guardian again.  The Guardian will lead you to the entrance
to the Labyrinth.

      When you've completed the Labyrinth you can now talk to the
people.  From the Labyrinth's exit, go left to the main walkway.  Go
right down the main walkway and there'll be two houses on either side of
you.  Both houses have item shops, but you can find Elarh the Merchant.
Elarh is the person you need to give the Seeds of Aahur to.

      Once you've completed the "Seeds of Aahur" quest, go down the ramp
to the small path.  From here, go right and follow the path until you
come to a large temple.  Go left around the temple and you'll see the
Keeper of Lore.  Talk to him and ask about the "Chaos," this will give
you "The Fate of Rhukha" quest.  After talking to the Keeper, go forward
a bit and you'll come to a long flight of stairs that go up the temple.
Take these stairs and turn right when you get to the top.  Follow this
path and go right when you come to a pair of pillars.  This will take
you to an altar that juts out from the temple.  Here you'll find Ilaru
the Priestess.  Talking to her will give you the "Secrets of Dakhanim"
quest.  Turn around now and go right when you've gone up the stairs.
Follow this until you come to another pair of stairs and go down the
left one.  Take this all the way down and go make a U-turn to the
right.  Go straight until you see three Khosani standing beside a large
vault.  One is a weaponsmith, another an armorer, and the last sells
items.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

6a. Test of Mind and Body

Place: Labyrinth of the Khosani
Items: Reinforced Boots
       Studded Pants
       Ring of Fire
       Pyros Ring
       Ring of Blessings
       Chainmail Tunic
Enemies: Fire Imp
         Iron Golem
         Khosani Prisoner
         Onyx Golem
         Steel Golem

      Here is where the Ring of Fire is kept.  Get ready for some tricky
puzzles ahead and some tough enemies.

      In the first room you'll see a large emblem on the ground.  Do not
step on the emblem unless you're prepared for a hard fight.  If you walk
on the emblem 4 Iron Golems will come out of the walls at once and
attack you.  Also, if you fought the Iron Golems you'll find some
Reinforced Boots.  Before you leave the room, examine the gold tile to
the left of the entrance.  Memorize the number, it's part of a puzzle
later on.

      The next two rooms are part of the same puzzle.  You'll have to
depress certain blocks in the first room in order to open the way.
The solution to this will be the Puzzle Solutions section.  You'll know
if you got the right blocks because you'll be attacked by an Onyx
Golem.  There's also another golden tile on the floor with a number.

      After you've solved the puzzle, proceed down the staircase to the
next room.  In here you'll have to take on 4 Khosani Prisoners.  When
you're through eliminating them, examine the gold tile on the floor and
move on.

      In the next two rooms is another puzzle.  It really isn't that
hard once you figure out what to do.  Basically, the stones represent
tiles that you can activate in the next room.  When you rotate a block
you'll see a design on the other side.  The design means that a tile
has appeared in the next room in that place.  What you should do is go
into Solo Mode and put someone in the second room.  Rotate the blocks
so you can get the Studded Pants, Studded Leather, and examine the gold
tile.  Don't forget to examine the gold tile in the first room before
moving on.

      The next room is why you been memorizing numbers here.  You have
to activate the numbered tiles in order to open the gate.  This puzzle
will be in the Puzzle Solutions section.  Be warned, when you activate
the first four tiles a Steel Golem will attack you.

      The next part of the test takes place in the rest of the
Labyrinth.  Go through the next room to enter a large chamber.  There's
a fork just beyond the stairs.  Both paths lead to the same place so it
doesn't matter which way you take.  As you go down the path you take,
you'll be attacked by some Fire Imps.

      When you reach the bottom, there's a wood gate that you can go
through.  Beyond this is the Ring of Fire and a boss.  Do the usual
pre-boss fight routine and move on.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boss Fight: Giant Salamanka

      This fight takes place in three parts.  Charge the Giant Salamanka
and make sure to heal your characters.  This thing loves to cast
Fireball so be careful.  Once you've depleted 3/4 of its life it'll
move.  Pick up the Pyros Ring where it once stood.  There's also a Ring
of Blessings around the corner from where you are.  You now have time to
refill your characters so do it.  When you're ready, cast Protect again
and charge the Salamanka.  After you've it to 1/4 of its life, it'll
move again.  There's a Chainmail Tunic where it once stood.  Heal, cast
Protect and charge the Salamanka one last time.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Once you've killed the big lizard, go to where you first fought
it.  There's a gate that leads to the City of the Khosani.  When you're
back in the city, talk to the Guardian of the Stone Portal to your left.
He'll tell you the history of the four summoning rings and where to find
the Ring of Stone.  Unfortunately, you'll need a map to get to the
Ikaemos Empire.  Refer back to section 6 for a walkthrough of the city.
Make sure to buy the best equipment you can becuase you'll have to face
another Rider when you leave.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

7. The Phoenix Will Rise Again

Place: World Map-Encounter
Enemies: Phoenix Rider

      It's time to face the second of the Four Riders.  You'll want to
save right when you get to the World Map.  This can be more difficult
than the  last one if you're not careful.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boss Fight: Phoenix Rider

      Thankfully, the Phoenix Rider doesn't summon monsters to aid him
in this battle.  However, the Phoenix Rider is strong enough that he
really doesn't need to.  Unlike the fight with the Ghost Rider, you
start out far enough that the Phoenix Rider won't attack you right away.
Take this time to cast Protect and summon your most powerful monster.
When you're ready, charge the Rider.  For this fight you'll have to be
very careful.  Phoenix Rider casts a lot of fire spells, including
Inferno which can knock nearby characters down.  When he gets down to
about 3/4 of his life, the Rider will dismount from his horse and
continue the fight.  After you take all his life away, the Rider will
fall, but it isn't over yet.  Shortly after he falls, the Rider will
resurrect himself.  Take this brief break to heal the characters that
need it.  Luckily, when the Rider rises again he is only at half life.
After you deplete all his life again, the Phoenix Rider will run away.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Once you're on the World Map again, head back to Lenele.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

8. In Search of Ikaemos

Place: Lenele
Shops: Weaponsmith x4
       Armorer x4
       Items x4
       Jewelry x2

      When you reach Lenele, head to the Palace.  Talk to Queen Galienne
and she'll tell you that Tancred might be able to help you find the map.
Now make your way across the city to Tancred's Haven, which is in the
Old City.  Since Tancred is poisoned, you'll have to talk to Mahri.
Mahri'll tell you to see the Apothecary, the same guy who plucked out
that beggar's eyes.  The Apothecary is to the right of the middle bridge
in the Old City in case you forgot.  He'll sell you the Ikaemos Swamp
Map for 10 GP.

      From Lenele, head southeast.  The Ikaemos Swamp can be found next
to a fork in a river.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

9. The Fallen Empire

Place: Ikaemos Swamp, Ikaemos Palace Upper Level, Ikaemos Palace Lower
       Chambers
Items: Healing Draught
       Berserker Ring
       Ring of Shadows
       Ikaemos Armory Key
       Brazen Dagger
       Garnet
       Elixir of Recovery
       Cupric Dagger
       Argent Dagger
       Pole Axe
       Auric Dagger
       Ikaemos Master Key
       Ring of Stone
       Nodachi
Enemies: Bacite Shaman
         Gargoyle
         Gorgonne
         Green Bacite
         Green Imp
         Grey Stone Golem
         Ikaemos Priest-King (Boss)
Quests: The Ghost of Ikaemos (Munorus)

      This first part of this place is confusing to navigate.  You have
to meander through a maze of moss covered ground for awhile at the
beginning.  Try to bare with me here, alright.

      At the beginning, take the path to your right.  This'll go on for
a bit.  When the path ends, take the one that's in front of you.  This
path is short and leads you to a wide open area.  Turn right and then go
left.  From here, just head straight.  The path will go right when you
come to the edge.  Follow this and you'll come to a bridge.  Cross the
bridge and you're through with that confusing mess.

      The area across the bridge is a big hill.  From the bridge, go
straight and there'll be a large ruin to your right.  If you go behind
the ruin you can go inside and find a Healing Draught.  Exit from the
ruin and head to the right.  You'll come across a cobblestone path that
goes to your left and right.  Go past the path and past the ruin.  When
you get to the other side of the ruin, go right and down the hill.  You
can go into a corridor in the large ruin to your right, but it's hidden
behind some large slabs of stone.  In the corridor you'll find a
Berserker Ring.  Go further down the corridor and it'll turn right.  In
here you'll find a Ring of Shadows.  Head back to the cobblestone path
now.

      Back at the path, go right up to the raised platform.  Up here
you'll see two bridges.  The right bridge doesn't connect to the next
part so take the left one.  To your right is an altar.  To the north of
the altar is your goal.  You'll have to take on 4 Gargoyles before you
can move on to Ikaemos Palace Upper Level.

      You're now placed in a dark hall that's guarded by 3 Green Bacites
and 1 Shaman.  Down the hall you'll find two rooms, one on each side.
These two rooms have their own network of rooms.  Right now lets go in
the right room.

      In the right room you'll have to take on some Green Bacites and a
Gargoyle.  To the left is a kitchen with a Green Bacite and a Gargoyle.
On the floor you'll find the Ikaemos Armory Key.  Leave this room and go
into the room that's straight ahead.  There are 3 Green Bacites and a
Shaman waiting for you here.  All that's in here is a staircase to the
Lower Chambers.  Exit this area and enter the room across from you in
the main hall.

      In the left room you'll run into some Green Bacites.  To the left
is a pair of Grey Stone Golems.  Also in this room is a wraith named
Munorus.  Munorus will give you "The Ghost of Ikaemos" quest.  Exit this
room and go left into the next room.  Kill the Green Bacite and go into
the next room.  In here is a Shaman and a Gorgonne.  Have Flece pick the
door lock and go to the next room.  In here there's a small pair of
rooms and a set of stairs that lead to the Lower Chambers.  In the pair
of rooms is a Brazen Dagger and a Garnet.  Descend the stairs to enter
the Lower Chambers.

      Directly across from where you start is a staircase.  Run across
the hall and up the stairs.  Eliminate the Gargoyles and Grey Stone
Golems in here.  There's an Elixir of Recovery to the left of the
stairs.  In the back of the room is a set of stairs and leads to a room
full of Gargoyles and Grey Stone Golems.  The Cupric Dagger is guarded
by one of the Golems.  Once you're done there, go back down to the hall.

      Once you're back in the hall, go right and kill the Bacites and
Gorgonnes.  Pick up the Argent Dagger, turn around, and go straight.
Go down the small flight of stairs and you'll be in a large chamber.
To the left and right are some Bacites and Gargoyles, but we need to go
right in order to move on.

      When you've gone to the right you'll see a ramp that leads down to
some water.  Walk down the ramp and confront the Grenn Bacites there.
All the way to the left, you'll find a Pole Axe between the large piece
of debris and the wall.  Go up the ramp to the next part.

      In the ruin to the right of the ramp you can find the Auric
Dagger.  Left are some stairs and some Bacites.  When you go up the
stairs you'll see that you can go two ways.  The left leads back to the
Upper Level, the right is a dead end.  Take the stairs to the Upper
Level.

      Once back in the Upper Level, make your way back out to the main
hall.  Turn right and you'll see a large statue.  Examine the four
circular switches and the door at the end of the hall will unlock.
When you approach the door you'll enter a boss fight.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boss Fight: Ikaemos Priest-King

      There really isn't any reason to worry for this fight.  At the
beginning, summon your strongest monster and cast Protect.  All you need
to do from this point is just attack him.  His attacks don't take away
that much.  The Priest King does have a lot of HP though.  In a few
minutes you'll have won this fight.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

      For winning the fight you should get the Ikaemos Master Key, Ring
of Stone, and a Nodachi.  Now that you have the Ring of Stone you're
free to leave when you want to.  As usual, be prepared to fight one of
the Four Riders when you get to the World Map.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

10. The Serpent Strikes

Place: World Map-Encounter
Enemies: Serpent Rider

      You'll have to be careful during this fight.  Serpent Rider can
constantly hits your characters with status effects throughout the whole
fight.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boss Fight: Serpent Rider

      As alwyas, cast Protect and summon your most powerful monster at
the beginning.  This guy can afflict your characters with practically
every status effect in the game.  His normal attacks can cause Poison
and Paralysis.  He can also cast Silence and Icy Sleep on you.  Charge
him and try not to use magic, that's when he's most likely to Silence
you.  When he gets down to 1/2 his life, Serpent will dismount his horse
and come after you.  Use this brief second to cast Protect again.  Like
the other two, he'll turn yellow and run when his HP's gone.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

      When you're back on the world map, head toward Lenele.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

11. The Prince of Treachery

       Collar of Dexterity
       Amethyst
Enemies: Bacite Shaman
         Blue Bacite
         Gorgonne
         Orenian Samurai
         Orenian Soldier
         Red Bacite
Quests: The Lord of Logaros (Lord of Logaros)
        Adeslani's Brother (Adeslani)

      Okay, who didn't think this would happen?  Prince Sornehan
betrayed his brother and now Murod controls Lenele.  It makes sense
though, how else would Murod know where to send his Riders?  Time to
sneak into the city.

      At the end of the bridge to the Outskirts you'll meet Pedrog, one
of Tancred's lieutenants.  Pedrog will inform of the situation.  You'll
need to make your way to Tancred's Haven where Yago waits for you.
Unfortunately, patrols in the city are ordered to kill on sight so you
need to go through the Sewers.  Pedrog will take you to the entrance.
There's a weaponsmith to the left of the bridge and an item shop on the
docks to the right.

      When you enter the Sewers, you'll immediately see that there are
some new faces here.  Kill the 2 Shamans and the Gorgonne then proceed
on.  Only a few steps away is a Blue Bacite that you have to kill.  At
the four-way intersection go right.  You could go left, but the gates
are lowered and there's no way to open them.  Follow this path and
you'll come to the exit to Tancred's Haven.

      In Tancred's Haven talk to Yago.  Yago will tell you to see
Tancred immediately before he'll tell you what to do.  Go upstairs now
and speak with the dying man.  Tancred will reveal to Flece the truth
about her mothers death.  When you're done talking to Tancred return to
Yago.  Yago will have Rosalind and Jekhar take the queen to Iona.
Joseph and Flece must go to the Temple of Urath.  Leave Tancred's Haven
and you'll be back in the Sewers.

      You only have one way to go right now so do it.  When you're back
near the exit to the Outskirts you'll see that the gates have been
opened.  The only way you can go is to the exit at the Marketplace so
make your way over there.

      When you reach the Marketplace you'll be able to draw your
weapons.  Your goal is the Temple of Urath, but you'll meet some heavy
resistance on the way there.  Taking about the patrolling guards is a
good idea, especially the Samurai, for more XP.

      Near the entrance the the Outskirts is the Lord of Logaros.  He
gives you "The Lord of Logaros" quest.

      Once you've made it to the Crown District, you can find a Rind of
Electrus in the shop at the southern end.  You'll have to pick the lock
on the door to get in.  There's a Collar of Dexterity in the shop next
to the southern bridge as well.  In between the middle two bridge is
Adeslani.  She'll give you the "Adeslani's Brother" quest.  You'll have
to follow her for awhile and kill anyone you come across.  In front of
the jewelry shop in the northern area is an Amethyst.

      When you reach the Temple a movie will play.  After the movie,
do the usual pre-boss fight ritual.  Whenever you're ready, move on
and fight the boss.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boss Fight: Tiger Rider

      The last of the Four Riders can be a tough opponent.  Tiger has
two main attacks: the first is a projectile which can paralyze you, the
other is his melee weapon.  He also moves around a lot more than the
Riders before him.  Hit him with Fire Arrows when he's running around
and regular attacks when he stops.  When he gets down to about 1/4 of
his life he'll dismount his horse.  From here on out, Tiger will assault
you with a barrage of melee attacks.  Beat him and he'll run away.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

      After you beat the Rider you'll be treated to a startling cinema.
Enjoy!

12. A Daring Rescue

Place: Tower of Eleh
Items: Felinus Pantaloons
       Recovery Tonic
       Health Tonic
       Boots of Stealth
       Slave Pit Key
       Tomb Key
       Boiled Leather
       Green Dragon Scale
       Shadow Haramaki
Enemies: Orenian Archer
         Orenian Samurai
         Orenian Soldier
         Slave Driver
Quests: Heal Joseph's Hand (Joseph)
        The Emperor's Dragon Scales (Xueli)

      Boy does that SUCK!  Oh well, you'll now be in control of Flece
for awhile.  Stealth is the name of the game here.  You can fight, but
just make sure some other enemy will come by and join in.  The Slave
Drivers are the weakest enemies here so feel free to pick on them.  Here
we go.

      From where you start, leave the alocve and go right.  A Samurai
patrols this area to be careful.  There's also a Slave Driver that comes
down this way.  Take another right and follow the path a short bit.
You'll see an Orenian Soldier not too far off.  To your immediate right
though is a place where you can go behind him.  When nobody is around,
attack the Soldier with a bow/crossbow and lead him to the back of your
hiding place.  You can fight the Soldier back here and no one will
notice.

      When you leave this hiding place, you'll see that there's a large
corridor to your right.  Another Soldier patrols on the other side of
the entrance to the corridor.  If he sees you lead him back into your
hiding place and take him out.  Enter the corridor and proceed down the
stairs.  This corridor is long and is patrolled by a couple of Samurai.
There are also locked doors on both sides.

      Go down the corridor and enter the first door on the right.
There's a Soldier in here so take care of him.  Behind the stacks of
logs to the right of the entrance is some Felinus Pantaloons.  There's
also a Recovery Tonic in a crate on the left end of the room.  Go to the
next door now and open it.  Some Thief's Gauntlets can be found on the
left side of the room.  Leave the two rooms now and go back into the
corridor.

      Head left now and be careful of the Samurai.  Enter the room on
the right.  In here you'll find a Health Tonic.  Talk to Jinghui in here
and she'll tell you that Joseph is in a cell at the bottom of the tower.
Leave this room and enter the next room on the left side of the
corridor.  In here is some Springsteel Boots.  Enter the corridor again
and go all the way to the end.  There's a Lift Golem here that can take
you up or down, you need to go up.

      At the top you'll find that you have to kill a Samurai before
you can proceed.  Take out the Samurai and go down the corridor.
There's a door on the right just as the corridor begins to darken.  In
the room is the Slave Foreman.  He'll tell you that he doesn't have the
key and that you won't find it (well that's just great).  Leave the room
and go right.

      You'll come to an outdoor area here.  Go left and find the Boots
of Stealth.  Just over the small wall is a Samurai.  Beyond the Samurai
is a Slave Driver.  When you kill the Slave Driver you get the Slave Pit
Key.  On the right side is a raised section guarded by two Samurai.  One
of them guards a small hut.  When you've killed the one in front of the
hut, go inside and find the Tomb Key.  There's also some Boiled Leather
all the way on the far end.  Head back to the lift now and go to the
lower level.

      On the lower level, the elevator is in the middle of a very large
room.  There are three corridors to choose from, one to the north, east,
and west.

      In the west corridor there is a door on the right side.  Unlock
it and inside is a Shadow Haramaki.

      The north corridor is where we need to go.  On both sides of the
corridors' walls is a door.  We need to go through the right door.

      In the next corridor go left.  There are 2 Samurai's that patrol
this corridor.  You'll need to fight them individually or things will
start to get messy.  Unlock the last door on the right and go inside.
Talk to Joseph and you'll get him back along with the "Heal Joseph's
Hand" quest.  There's just one problem with Joseph, HE ONLY HAS ONE
HAND!  This means he cannot equip shields or two-handed weapons.  Well,
now it's time to escape from Eleh.  Go back to the lift and go to the
upper level.

      What you're going to have to do now is make your way down the
Tower on the front side.  You're going to have to go through a lot of
enemies before you make it to the bottom.

      When you've gone down about two levels you'll find a little path
behind the stairs.  You'll know when it is by a Samurai standing guard
at the bottom of the stairs and to the right.  Anyway, in the little
corridor is a Samurai you need to kill.

      After you've killed the Samurai here, open the gate at the end.
Talk to Yiyin and give him the Slave Pit Key.  You'll get 3,000 XP for
your good deed.  Go into the slave pit and talk to Xueli.  Xueli will
give you a Green Dragon Scale and "The Emperor's Dragon Scales" quest.
Also in the slave pit is Chengdai who's part of the "Durgan's Lucky
Charm" quest.

      Leave the slave pit now and continue your way down the tower.
There isn't anything worth mentioning about the trip down.  You'll come
across several Archers and Samurai and you'll only have to fight them
one at a time.  Close to the bottom though you'll have to fight an
Archer and a Samurai at the same time.  So descend down the platforms
and leave the tower.

      On the world map, you'll find Wolong to the south along the coast.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

13. The Fearful Town

Place: Wolong
Items: Anzhi's Box
       Minhe's Bowl
       Gulan's Knife
       Mangosteen
       Onyx Carp
       Stick of Charcoal
       Tears of Usaman
Enemies: Orenian Samurai
         Orenian Soldier
Quests: Find the Ring of Water (Rosalind)
        Find the Ring of Jade (Rosalind)
        Find the Ring of Four Winds (Rosalind)
        Fint the Ring of the Forest (Rosalind)

      Wolong is like Masad, it's a dungeon disguised as a town.  There
are NPCs to interact with but there are also enemies walking around.
This place is rather big with open fields so I might have some trouble
describing some things.

      From the starting point, go right along the houses.  You'll
encounter a Samurai, but you know what to do with them.  Continue along
the houses and you'll come to an open field.  From this point you'll
want to head southwest until you come to a forest.  Rosalind and a
Gatherer named Sizhe.  Talk to Rosalind and you'll get the quests to
find the next four rings.  Sizhe will tell you that he needs four things
before he can heal your hand: an Onyx Carp, a Widow's Knife, a Traitor's
Rice Bowl, and a Stick of Charcoal.  Before we go after these things,
go south and pick up Anzhi's Box which is at the edge of the woods.

      Now it's time to find the four items Sizhe needs.  Head back to
the north part of town near the harbor.  Go right and past three houses
There are two ways to go from here: To the right you can talk to Minhe
and ask for his rice bowl.  From Minhe, go forward and into the town
square.  At the southwestern corner is Gulan the Mourner.  Ask Gulan for
her knife.  Left you can talk to Zhimin who is standing on the dock.
Ask about the Onyx Carp and he'll tell you to get some fruit for his
bird.  Turn around and head to the stairs that lead to the town square.
Go left here and talk to Peizhi at the edge of town.  Ask him for some
fruit and he'll give you a Mangosteen.  Return to Zhimin at the dock
and he'll give you the Onyx Carp.  Once you have the three items, head
east to the end of town.  Go up the hils and you'll find Anzhi standing
near the edge of the cliff.  Ask hom for a Sick of Charcoal and then
give him his box.  You now have all four items so head back to Sizhe.

      I'm not sure if this has any effect on the game, but on the
southern edge of town is an Orenian Solider standing on a bridge.  His
name is Haidi and he's feeling suicidal at the moment.  You can either
tell him to drown himself or fight for the Jade Temple.  Like I said,
I don't if this there's a point to this but I thought I'd metion it.

      Once you've returned to Sizhe, you'll take part in a rather
disgusting ritual.  Sizhe will then tell you that you need to do two
more things before you can get your hand back.  The first thing you have
to do is go into the Caverns of Wolong and eat a plant called the Tail
of the Rokhul (the same thing Aoqi used to poison Tancred).  The other
thing you must do is clean your wound in the Pool of Wonders which is
deep inside the Caverns.  You'll then get the Tears of Usaman to sneak
past the soldiers that guard the entrance to the Caverns.  Head to the
southern end of town where the Soldier named Haidi is.

      This next part can be intense.  You have to run through the
enemies ranks to make it to the Caverns at the top.  Your Invisibility
will, in all likelihood, wear off before you reach the top.  When this
does happen, you should be far enough that you won't have to fight many
people.

      Save your game before you continue just in case.  When you're
ready, have all three characters (it doesn't work on everyone if only
person does it) use the Tears of Usaman.  After everyone becomes
Invisible, run past the soldiers and up the stairs.  Follow the path
and turn right when you come to a 'T' intersection.  Take an immediate
right and another sharp right and climb the next flight of stairs.
Continue along and you'll come to a large building with some walls
around it.  Enter this area and go to the back of the building where
you'll find the next flight of stairs.  From here it's a straight path
all the way up to the Caverns of Wolong.  You might want to take out
some of the small groups of soldiers for the extra XP.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

13a. I am Whole Once Again

Place: Caverns of Wolong
Items: Razor Shortsword
       Red Dragon Scale
       Health Tonic
       Healing Draught (3)
       Imapler
       500 GP
       Shadow Medallion
       Frigidis Ring
       Ring of Water
Enemies: Blue Minotaur
         Bone Knight
         Crystal Rokhul
         Frozen Bone Knight
         Ice Witch

      The Caverns of Wolong is a very large and confusing place.  This
place will also test your abilities in combat.  Without Jekhar or a
summon monster things are going to be pretty rough.  There's also a bug
in the game that cuts off your Chain Attacks when you go up against Blue
Minotaurs.  Just be patient and careful and you'll make it through.

      At the starting point, go down the path until you come to Caris
the Damned.  Caris is a Lich and he'll tell you about his three brothers
that are further in the Caverns.  Continue forward for a long ways and
you'll come to Drazin the Tormented.  Don't bother talking to him, he'll
just confuse you.  Drazin will basically say that one of the two ways
presented to you at the fork is the right way, but both are right.  Go
down the right path.  In-between the first and second Frozen Bone
Knights, look for a branching path in the left wall.  Down this path is
a Razor Shortsword.  Head back to the main path and you'll come to spike
trap.  Enter Solo Mode and have Joseph go through.  Just as the trap
springs, exit Solo Mode and continue through.  Flece and Rosalind won't
be hurt if you do it this way.

      This next part is a very open area.  Fight your way to a bridge
that's to the south.  Cross the bridge and head northeast.  This cave
has the Red Dragon Scale and a Bougu-Dou at the far end.  Southeast from
the Red Dragon Scale you'll come to a dead end.  However, there's a
switch to your right.  This switch opens a secret cavern in front of
you.  There are three Ice Withces in here so prepare for a hard fight.
In this room you'll find a Health Tonic in some barrels, Healing Draught
(3) next to the stairs, an Imapler at the top of the stairs, 500 GP in
some barrels next to that, and a Shadow Medallion at the other end.
Head back out to the main cavern now.

      Go through one of the caves on the south wall (they both lead to
the same place).  Ahead you'll come across Azha the Archlich.  You can
challenge him, but you can't beat him (at least I don't know how).  Past
the Archlich is a fork, once again, it doesn't matter which way you go.
Further up is Balis the Demilich.  Balis will take you to the Pool of
Wonders, but he wants the bone of Azha for his troubles.  Unless you
know how to kill Azha, go left.  Here you'll find two paths to go down.
This is where things get really confusing.

      Take the first path and make a 'U' turn to the right.  A few steps
later you'll come into a dark cavern.  Go straight to the wall and then
left, don't go down the path that leads to a light cavern.  Take the
first path on the right and go up the slope.  When you get to the river
turn left.  In here is a path that'll take you under the river.  You'll
have to turn the camera southwest in order to see this cave.  Go down
here and you'll find a Frigidis Ring next to the third Crystal Rokhul.

      When you come out of the tunnel you'll be in a dark cavern.  The
only way to go from here is west.  After a short distance you'll find
yourself next to the river.  Go northwest and follow the path for
awhile until you come to another large cavern.  There's a path that goes
east into the next room where the Tail of Rokhul is.  Don't forget to
make Joseph eat some of this before you move on (the Tail of Rokhul is
the yellow plant).

      After you eat the Tail of Rokhul, head west.  You'll want to go
down a path that slopes downward and has two Blue Minotaurs in it.
Follow this path and you'll come to a fork.  Take the right path that
goes along a deep pit.  After you pass the pit, you'll be in a very
large cavern.  Head north and you'll find Ngaru's Ghost.  Talk to Ngaru
and he'll give you the Ring of Water.  To the left of Ngaru is the Pool
of Wonders.  Go there and you'll get your hand back.

      In this same cavern is a tunnel on the west side of the wall.
Down this tunnel is a Bow of Piercing.  There's also a switch at the end
that opens a secret panel in the wall.  If you go through this new
opening and turn right you'll come to the exit of the Caverns.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

13b. Jaded Warriors

Place: Wolong
Items: Battle Boots
       Hero's Chainmail
       Icy Dagger
       Ring of Expertise
       Ring of the Four Winds
Enemies: General Pijian (Boss)
         Orenian Archer
         Orenian Samurai
         Orenian Soldier
Quests: Defeat General Pijian (Jade Temple Soldier)
        The Heir of King Bellias (Aoqi)

      It's time to liberate Wolong.  During your trip into the Caverns,
it seems that Aoqi and the warriors of the Jade Temple have come to
Wolong.  This next part has you crush the Orenian soldiers and defeat
General Pijian.

      When you're back in Wolong, descend down the first flight of
stairs and a Jade Temple Soldier will approach you.  The Soldier will
tell you that his detachment has been seperated from the main force.
This will give you the "Defeat General Pijian" quest.  When the
dialogue is over, follow the Soldier down the stairs to the group of
Jade Temple Soldiers.  Talk to the Priest and he'll tell you to follow
the Soldiers down the platforms.

      Approach the group of Soldiers near the stairs and they'll charge
forward.  Follow them all the way down being sure to kill everyone you
come across.  At the large grey building that you have to go by, you'll
find some Battle Boots beside a column.  Across from the grey building
is a brown building.  Behind the building is a Hero's Chainmail.  When
you get to the village, make you way to the harbor where General
Pijian waits.  You'll also find an Icy Dagger on the western side of
the town square.  A Ring of Expertise is beside a lamp in the
southeastern part of the fields.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Boss Fight: General Pijian, Orenian Soldier x3

      This fight is difficult.  The three Orenian Soldiers is what
makes this fight hard.  You could focuse all your people on Pijian, but
you'll take some serious damage in the process.  It would be better if
you took out two of the Soldiers (or all if you want).  One Soldier
can't inflict as much damage as  three.  Concentrate on Pijian at this
point.  Pijian has a lot of HP so it'll take little while to beat him.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

      After Pijian's fall into the lake, you'll be taken to Aoqi.
Talk to her and learn some startling revelations.

      Once you're through with that long dialogue sequence, head down
to the city.  Jekhar waits for you between two houses in the
northwestern part of town (not the fields, the town itself).  Talk to
Jekhar and he'll give you the Ring of the Four Winds.  He'll also tell
you where the last two rings can be found.  Jekhar will join you again
after you're done talking to him.  Leave Wolong now.

      Back on the World Map, follow the road east of Wolong (the one
that goes along the coastline) and you'll find the Liangshan Forest.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

14. *Cough* Can't . . . Breathe

Place: Liangshan Forest
Items: Boots of Stealth
       Spinesplitter
       Eversharp Katana
       Grey Dragon Scale
       Recovery Tonic x2
       Ring of Shadows
       Robe of Resoration
       Preservation Ring
       Shadow Gauntlets
       Shadow Haramaki
       Torque of Time
Enemies: General Wentao
         Oni Female
         Oni Mage
         Orenian Greater Mage
         Orenian Mage
         Orenian Soldier
         Phoenix Rider (Boss)
         Serpent Rider (Boss)
Quests: Child of the Spirits

      Liangshan Forest is probably the most annoying place in the game.
Not far into it you get poisoned, and there's no way to cure it.  So
you've then gotta run through the whole thing healing yourself all the
way.  If Rosalind doesn't have the Vitalize spell, you should take
control of Jekhar or someone else.  Doing this will keep Joseph's AP
up so he can use Vitalize.  If nobody has Vitalize this won't be a
pleasant experience.

      Where you start from you'll see four Oni Females not far ahead.
Kill those four and continue down the path.  There's an Orenian camp
along the river bank, but all you'll find here are a few Oni Females.
Eventually you'll come to a Wounded Soldier standing in front of a
green fog.  The Soldier will tell you about the poison in the forest
and that General Wentao is coming to destroy the shrine.

      When you're ready, step into the poisonous green fog.  Not far
into the fog you'll see that the trees to the left part.  Through this
way you'll find some Boots of Stealth.  You already have some Boots of
Stealth from the Tower of Eleh though so it's your choice to go after
these.  Whether or not you go after the boots, you'll need to go
northeast and cross the river.

      Head south down the path.  Kill all the Oni Mages and avoid all
the Females that you can.  The faster you get to the shrine at the end
the better.  Besides, you can backtrack and eliminate the ones you
ignored later.  When you get to the demolished village, go across the
bridge.  There's also a Spinslitter and Eversharp Katana to the right
of the bridge.  The Spineplitter can be found on the riverbank just
south of the bridge.  The Eversharp Katana is further down the way,
next to the wall.

      Once across the bridge, fight your way through the ruins and go
north.  This path goes on for quite some distance but you can easily
avoid most of the enemies here.  Toward the end of the path you'll find
a graveyard along the riverbank.  In the back of the graveyard is an
Oni named Piaobo.  Piaobo will give you the "Child of the Spirits"
quest.  Further north is the Grey Dragon Scale and two Recovery Tonics.
From here, head south along the east riverbank.

      Along the way you'll come across a large tree that has a hole
underneath its roots.  Down here is a Ring of Shadows.  Not far from
the large tree is a bridge.  Two old friends wait for you on the other
end of the bridge.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Boss Fight: Phoenix Rider & Serpent Rider

      This fight is a cake walk.  All you have to do is charge them and
they fall within a matter of seconds.  You'll still need to be careful
around Serpent with his status attacks.  When the fight starts,
everyone will charge Serpent so you don't need to worry about him.
Have the character you control go after Phoenix since he's the most
annoying of the two.  Be warned though, when the Riders die they
explode leaving a Fireball where they stood.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

      After you've killed the double menace, pick up the itmes that
they left behind.  You should get a Robe of Restoration, Preservation
Ring, Shadow Gauntlets, Shadow Haramki, and some gold.

      Now that you finally have those two out of your hair go north.
Far down the path you'll find a Torque of Time along the riverbank.
Further down from there is the shine.  Approach the Gaurdian of the
Shrine and have him cure the poison.  If you choose the other option
it'll lead to the next part.

      Before you choose the "Child of prophecy?" option, you can run
back and kill all the Oni that you ran around.

      Whenever you move on, you'll now have to defend the shrine.  As
soon as you're done talking to Guardian, turn around and go back a bit.
You'll see a lone Orenian Soldier running toward you.  Kill this
Soldier and three more will come at you.  After you're done with those
three two more Soldiers will come along with a Mage.  The last group is
a one Soldier, Mage, Greater Mage, and General Wentao.

      After that little skirmish is over, return to the Guardian.  For
your help you've earned the Ring of the Forest.  Go behind the shrine
and you'll find the way out of the forest.

      On the World Map, head directly west and you'll find the Jade
Temple.

3. Durgan's Lucky Charm: Durgan the sailor needs his lucky charm, an

                         lost it in a game of chance with a gambler
                         named Ivas.  Find the earring and bring it to
                         Durgan near the docks of Lenele.
Solution:  Southwest from the Keep in the Old City you'll find Ivas the

           the Pawnbroker.  Head northeast to the Keep to find Gebbin
           hobbling in circles around the Keep.  Gebbin sold the earring
           to a merchant named Agilo in Lenele Marketplace.  Agilo can
           be found next to a blue booth near the main street. Once
           again, he doesn't have the earring.  He gave it to his
           mistress Dama.  Goodwife Dama can be found in the southern
           part of the Marketplace near the horse trader.  Dama gave
           the earring to Torras, a jeweler in the Crown District.
           Torras can be found in the northern part of the Crown
           District, next to the park.  As usual, he doesn't have the
           earring.  In fact, he never got it.  The girl Dama sent
           to Torras with the earring was trampled by a horse.  Torras
           says that he saw a rat run away from her corpse with a
           "shiny object" in its mouth.  He tells you to go see Humbus
           the Rat Catcher.  Humbus is straight across from the south
           side of stables.  Once again, Humbus doesn't have the
           earring.  He gave it to his friend Chengdai who's halfway
           to Orenia.  Chengdai is in the Tower of Eleh.  Refer to
           section 12 for directions.  Surprise, surprise, Chengdai
           doesn't have it either.  He gave it to his brother Likai
           who's in Wolong.  Likai only appears when you return to
           Wolong after it's been liberated.  Likai is standing next
           to the entrance to the town square.  You're not gonna
           believe this, Likai HAS THE RING!  Unfortunately, you're
           going to have to lie to him and say that it's needed to
           fulfill the prophecy.  When you're able to go back to
           Lenele, give the earring to Durgan.

          Krys.  Krys will make the Stonefire Lanterns for you.  Take
          the lanterns to the Master of Revels now.  Go talk to Torvel

meets the skill requirements.  For weapons that have additional effects
I've put them underneath its name.

XIX. Tips & Tricks
------------------

      Here I'll post any information I have that'll help in your quest.
If you have your own little tips e-mail me and I'll put 'em down.

-Spell Casting Shortcut: There's a quiker way to get your spells casted.
                         After you select a spell and your character's
                         hands start glowing, hit triangle to bring up
                         the main menu. Go into Inventory, Skills, or
                         Status and most of the time you'll hear the
                         sound of the spell being casted (even if you
                         didn't hear it, it most likely still worked).
                         This little trick can be very helpful when
                         fighting bosses and a character needs to be
                         healed quickly.  However, if you do this while
                         summoning the action will be cancelled.

-Cast Protect: Protect is a very helpful spell.  Make sure you ALWAYS
               cast it before a boss fight and recast it it when it
               runs out.

-The Credits Movie: At the main menu select Credits.  When the credits
                    start to roll press X or Triangle.  A hilarious
                    movie will then play with Joseph, Jekhar, Luminar,
                    and an Ultor Commando from Red Faction playing
                    Dungeons & Dragons.  If you know anything about D&D
                    this makes the movie even funnier.  After the movie
                    it'll also play 2 blooper segments.

-Fireball & Flame Arrow: If you use these two spells in combination,
                         along with the Spell Casting Shortcut, you
                         can seriously hurt an enemy before they can
                         get to you.  The only way this'll really work
                         though is if you surprise the enemy.  If the
                         enemy hasn't seen you yet, cast Fireball on
                         him.  After that, shoot a barrage of Flame
                         Arrows.  By the time the enemy gets up to you
                         close to half or more of its life'll be gone.
                         If the enemy is really slow, like the Broken
                         Brass Golems, you can pin them in the Fireball
                         blast where take damage for a couple seconds.

-Ranged Attack: Having someone equipped with a relatively fast bow/
                crossbow isn't such a bad idea.  A single person can
                kill a tough enemy all by him/herself, provided that the
                enemy is slow.  All you have to do is select the
                character with the ranged weapon and go into Solo Mode.
                After that, approach the enemy until you're at maximum
                range.  All you have to do now is attack.  When the
                enemy gets too close run away to maximum range and
                continue the assault.

-Healer w/Bow: I usually equip someone (usually Rosalind) with a bow
               and use her as a healer while everyone else goes and
               beats the crap out of the enemy.  It really works great
               because I don't have to concern myself with healing.  It
               works even better when you've got higher level Heal
               Spells.

 trying to find that %$#!@* thing.

 Ikaemos Swamp.

      The rest is a list of the people who contributed, even the people
whose work didn't make it.  There are a few reasons why someone wouldn't
be in the "made it" section: Someone else beat you to it.  I don't post
anything that I haven't confirmed yet.  I had to get this update up fast
when it came to my attention that I made some BIG mistakes.  Because of
that I was not able to add everything I could this time.  If you
contributed but didn't make it you deserve a thank you because you
wanted to help.  Thank You!
