It is the first for the Japanese Dreamcast. There were predecessors, Culdcept Expansion and Expansion Plus for the Playstation, and the original game came out for the Sega Saturn. It came out on July 12, 2001 for 6800yen, only in Japan. 2) Frequently Asked Questions ------------------------------ Q) Can I play it without much knowledge of Japanese? A) Well, it isn\'t that bad. There are a lot of pictures of things and there are only a few commands which you use regularly. There isn\'t much English, but it is easily playable without much knowledge of Japanese. The game is quite simple to play. Q) What is the game like? A) It is like a mix between a board game and a strategy card game. If you are a fan of either game, you should really give it a try. Q) Is the game any good? A) Yes! The game received 10,10, 9 from three reviewers in Dreamcast Famitsu magazine. It received Platinum ranking with reviews of 9,9,9,10 in Famitsu magazine and 9,9,8 in Dreamagazine. It is very well-made with network support. It is the third full-game of the series that has improved with every game. Q) I only have one of Card X in my deck, how come I can have two in my hand at once? A) When you have pulled all of the cards from your deck, your deck is replenished back to full, even with the cards that are still in play. Therefore, you can have two cards in play, even though there is only one in your deck. Q) What happens if I can\'t pay my opponent when I land on their square? A) If you have sold all of your locations and still owe, then you return back to the castle and start with the original MPs. However, the full amount is paid to your opponent even though you don\'t have enough to pay them. Q) How do I get the Vandal Gear card? A) You need to have the Battle Gear A and Battle Gear B cards. Put them into your deck. In the game, place one of them into play. When combat occurs with one of them, summon the other as an item. They will merge in battle. You can never have it in your deck as a single card. You must merge it on the game board. 3) How to play --------------- This is a board (tabletop) game. Your objective is to have collect enough magic points (MP) before your opponents do. You do this by controlling areas on the board with creatures that you summon. Players (called Cepters) affect each other by attacking each other\'s creatures with their own. Players cannot directly attack each other, but can cast spells on each other. If you lose a battle on an opponent\'s square, you must pay them (rent) as MPs. 3.1) At the Main Menu: ---------------------- Story Mode ---------- Story mode is where you fight the enemy characters in a set of games, collecting cards as you go along to make your deck (of cards) better. You can save at any time in a game and also between games. You must re-organize your decks between battles as you gain new cards. At the start of the Story mode, you choose your character\'s appearance on the game board. This has no effect in the game. Afterwards, you will be shown a map of the game world and you must choose your path. Load ---- Load from your current position in Story mode. Battle Mode ----------- Battle mode is simply a stand-alone map against human or computer opponents. When beginning Battle mode, you must choose the map and the characters and which controller they use before starting the game. To begin, choose new character. Here are the options: Load Character (from Story Mode) AI Character (your edited character controlled by the computer) Story Mode Character (from Story Mode) New Character (from scratch) When choosing a map, you can set the goal, etc. Some of the maps have limitations to the amount that you can change an option. Here is a list of the options: Start map (begin game) Goal (1000-90000MPs) End Turn (0-none) BGM (select background music) Turn Clock (0-99secs) Taunts (On or off) Ante (0-4 cards) Terrain (Original, random or all neutral) Sudden death mode (On or off) Return (return to previous menu) If you select your character, you bring up another list of options: Book Stock AI Pics Rules Options Save Data exg Delete Trade Return Manual Book - edit your deck of cards AI - edit/create a computer opponent Rules - edit the rules of the game Save - save your progress to memory card Delete - delete this character from this game (not from memory card) Return - returns to previous menu Stock - view all the cards that this character has accumulated Pics - view all the pictures and movies accumulated Options - change the game options Data Exg - Import or export data Trade - trade cards between saved characters Manual - view the game manual Replay Mode ----------- You can save a replay into memory after completing a map, either story or battle. Here you can view the game that you played again from start to finish. You must have saved a replay to play this mode. There are no default replays. Homepage -------- Go to the Culdcept homepage. Manual ------- Here you can view the game\'s manual in electronic format. 3.2) Controls: -------------- Joystick selects between menus and squares A accepts B cancels or returns a menu Y brings up the game map L cycles through status info on the squares R brings up the status information Start brings up the electronic manual In combat, all the buttons are used for item select In game, there are three basic menus: - The middle menu is the card menu. - The top menu is the dice menu. - The bottom menu is the command menu. 3.3) Dice Menu -------------- This is the menu for movement. When you select this menu, you will see a round display with the numbers from 1-10*. You must move this number of squares, but at intersections, you may choose either route. * Note the movement maximum varies with the map. 3.4) Card Menu -------------- Here you can see the cards that you currently have in your hand. You can cast one per game phase by selecting a spell card before movement. You can only hold a maximum of 6 cards at a time. If you have more than 6, you must immediately discard one of them. 3.5) Command Menu ----------------- A) Terrain Sub-menu Terrain Level Up - Here you can increase the level of the terrain. - Higher terrain level gives higher HPs to the creature on it, if they are a creature of the same terrain. - Higher terrain level increases the cost when landing on it. - Terrain may be increased to level 5 maximum. Change Terrain - You may change the terrain to another type for a base cost of 100MPs, which rises with the number of controlled squares in that area. Move Creature - You can move a creature one space, between terrain squares. Exchange Creature - You can exchange the creature on the square to another in your hand. - You still pay the activation cost of the new creature. Activate Creature power - You can activate a creature\'s special power by paying the cost stated - Only special creatures have special powers that can be activated here * If you land on a square such as a Tower or Castle, you can access the Command menu for any square that you control. If you access the Command menu at other times, you can only access the squares that you crossed this turn in the Command menu. B) Map - Displays the game board. C) Options - Shows the in-game options: - Sound, Stereo or Mono - Message speed, 1-5 - Vibration, On or Off - Change the position of the screen D) Display Status - Shows the Status menus E) Help - Displays the electronic manual F) Save (Story mode only) - Allows you to save the game G) End turn - Ends your current turn 3.6) Screen Layout ------------------ At the top of the screen, there is the display for MPs. The top number is the number of MPs available for each player(pool). The bottom number is the number of MPs secured in total. To the right of these numbers are the letters NESW for the checkpoints visited by the player. At the bottom of the screen, you can see the current menu. 4) Game Rules -------------- 4.1) Winning the Game --------------------- The player that accumulates the set number of MPs is the winner. To accumulate MPs in locations, players must increase the level of the terrain. By doing this, they increase their magic point total but reduce MPs from their pool. The magic point pool is used to cast spells, execute commands, etc. It is the immediate pool from which the player draws their power. If your pool is reduced below zero, you must relinquish control the magic that you have stored in locations on the board. Think of the pool as the money in your pocket and the stored magic as your bank account. If you run out of money, you have to go into your bank account and withdraw. To be crowned the winner, you must be the first player with the appropriate MPs to reach the castle. If you cannot pay enough MPs when you land on an opponent\'s square, you are forced back to the castle and are re-instated with the starting amount of MPs. 4.2) The Game Turn ------------------ In every game turn, each player may do each of the following things: *Pull a card* - First a player receives a new card from his deck (or book). - If a player has more than 6 cards, they immediately discard one. *Cast a spell* - A player may then cast a spell (use a spell card). - This is optional. *Move* - A player must move (by using the dice or a spell card). *Place a creature / Command* - After a player has moved, a player may place a creature if the square is empty. - If the square is occupied, the player may initiate combat. - In some cases, the player may access the command menu instead of placing a creature. 4.3) Terrain ------------ There are six types of terrain for the squares in the game. They are: Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Neutral and Rainbow. The creatures in the game are born of the basic terrain (there are no Rainbow creatures). If a creature is placed on the same type of terrain, then it gains a HP bonus in combat equal to Terrain level X 10. You can increase the level of terrain from 1-5 by accessing the command menu. In the command menu, you can also change the terrain that your own to any that you wish at a cost of MPs. The more creatures that you control in an area, the higher the cost when an opponent lands on one of those squares. Neutral creatures never receive a HP bonus, even if they are on neutral terrain. Rainbow terrain gives a bonus to any non-neutral creature. However, the value of the terrain is only 80% of the regular terrain types. Some creatures receive special bonuses in specific terrain and others can never be placed on some terrain. Some more powerful creatures require that you own a number of terrain in an area before you can place them (usually a map is divided into two or three areas). Each map is divided into one or more areas. In each area, terrain has a certain value. This value depends on several things, including: The number of a terrain that a player owns, past the first The map This value affects the amount that player pays when landing on it (rent). Value goes up and down during the game as players exchange locations and change the terrain level. Players may use the Chapel to invest MPs in a terrain for a certain area. Later, the player can sell back his investment for a higher or lower level. To power up a terrain to a higher level, the costs are as follows: Level 1 - Level 2 100 Level 3 300 Level 4 700 Level 5 1500 The cost associated with landing on a square depends on the number of the same type of terrain owned by the opponent and the level of the terrain landed on: Number of squares Level 1 2 3 4 5+ 1 20 30 36 40 44 2 40 60 72 80 88 3 160 270 288 320 352 4 480 720 844 960 1056 5 1280 1920 2104 2560 2816 Note: Some of the squares or maps have 80% or even 50% of these values. Usually, rainbow areas are less value than the other terrain. The value of the squares (pool) also changes on the number of the same type of terrain and the level: Number of squares Level 1 2 3 4 5+ 1 100 150 180 200 220 2 200 300 360 400 440 3 400 600 720 800 880 4 800 1200 1440 1600 1760 5 1600 2400 2880 3200 3520 4.4) Special Game Squares ------------------------- Game squares are special locations or buildings on the board. When you land on these squares, if you do not use the properties of the square, you can execute a command from the command menu. Castle - The castle is the main building in the game. You begin and end the game in this square. You receive a salary (and sometimes bonus) after reaching the checkpoints. You can access the command menu (for all creatures) if you land on it. Tower - The towers are checkpoints. Once you have reached all of the checkpoints, go to the castle to receive your salary. - You can access the command menu (for all creatures) if you land on it. Chapel (Bank) - Here you can make an offering to your god. (see Terrain) Top menu is to buy. Middle menu is to sell. Shop - These are card shops where you may take an extra card if you land on it. - You can choose any type of card, creature, item or spell. - It will take a card randomly from the rest of your deck. - If you do not have any of that type left, you must choose another type. Shrine - You get a random effect (good or bad) when you land on it. (see lists) Warp - You are transported to another Warp square if you land on it. Bridge - You are transported to another bridge space when you land or pass it. 4.5) Combat ----------- When attacking, you will see a bubble appear above each creature. Up Arrow - Your creature\'s Strength + Support Bonus is greater than the defending creatures HPs + Terrain bonus Equals - Your creature\'s Strength + Support Bonus is equal to the defending creature\'s HPs + Terrain bonus Down Arrow - Your creature\'s Strength + Support Bonus is less than the defending creatures HPs + Terrain bonus Shield - Creature cannot attack, only defend Land Marker - You do not control enough terrain to place the creature yet G - You do not have enough MPs to place the creature X - The Creature has an aversion of this terrain and cannot be placed on it Card - Creature cannot be placed because you have no cards to sacrifice. *Be careful! This does not include things like Quick strike and other abilities so at times, it looks like an easy battle and you will lose. These markers should be used only as a guide for combat. If you choose not to attack a creature when you land on a square, you can access the command menu instead. You will be penalized in the same amount of MPs as if you had lost the combat. After choosing the combatants, the attacker will choose the item that they wish to use in the combat, if any, then the defender does the same. Next, combat ensues. Unless there are other effects, the attacker will attack first, dealing his adjusted strength in damage to the defending creature\'s HPs. If the defending creature survives, then he may attack back, dealing damage in the same manner. Combat can be modified by item or creature effects such as Quick strike, or Petrification. After combat has been resolved, the combat result is one of the following: - Attacker wins and the attacking player gains control of the square. - Defender wins and the defending player gains control of the square. - The combat is drawn (no winner) and defender still controls the square. - Both creatures are killed and nobody controls the square. Combat Modifiers: - Support Bonus is the number of creatures that you control in the area. Support Bonus can be used in attacking and defending. You gain +10 Str for one creature on either side You gain +20 Str for creatures on both sides - Terrain Bonus can be used only in defending. 5) Customizing your Book of Cards ---------------------------------- Between maps in the Story mode, you can customize your deck (book of cards). Before entering the next map, select the third option to copy your book, and select the fourth to edit your book. When editing your book, you have several options: - Edit Book - Rename Book - Divide Book - Delete Book 5.1) Deck Rules --------------- There are several rules that you must follow when customizing your deck: You must have 50 cards in your deck. You can have zero of a single card minimum. You can only have 4 of a single card maximum. 5.2) Creature Cards ------------------- Make sure that your deck is tailored to the map and opponent that you are playing. Also, make sure that you keep a good balance between weak, cheap creatures and big, expensive creatures. There\'s no sense in having a deck full of expensive creatures that you can\'t cast until later in the game. Always try and represent a good balance between the terrain also. The creatures that adapt to any terrain are generally a bit weaker, so don\'t rely on too many of them. Try and keep a balance of around 40-70% creatures, with the rest as spells and items or any combination that you like. Creatures are a basic part of the game, spells and items aid them. As for specific card-types, be careful. Card summoners and sacrificers are great cards in attacking enemy creatures, but you need to fuel them with other cards. If you put too many of them in your deck, you won\'t have the cards to use them properly. You should also be careful of creatures that require controlling terrain before using them because too many in a deck can be disastrous. At the start, you won\'t be able to concentrate on a single terrain or two. You just have to take the cards you can and add them wherever you can. Later on, once you have collected enough cards, you can start to make your own speciality decks and work on your favorite terrain and cards. Here are some thoughts on the colors and the strengths / weaknesses of each: Earth ----- Offensive Power: *** Defensive Power: **** Best Offensive Cards 1) Cereberus 2) Wereboar 3) Coati 4) Hanbaba 5) Ghoul Best Defensive Cards 1) Vampire 2) Gargoyle 3) Grimalkin 4) Green Mold 5) Mummy Air --- Offensive Power: ***** Defensive Power: ** Best Offensive Cards 1) Knight 2) Nightmare 3) Nightfiend 4) Gremlin 5) Garuda Best Defensive Cards 1) Mermecoleo 2) Nike 3) Hurricane 4) Leveller 5) Griffon Fire ---- Offensive Power: **** Defensive Power: *** Best Offensive Cards 1) Sorcerer 2) Barrow Wight 3) Gladiator 4) Fire Giant 5) Pyrallis Best Defensive Cards 1) Willow Wisp 2) Gas Cloud 3) Old Willow 4) Pyro Drake 5) Domovikha Water ----- Offensive Power: ** Defensive Power: ***** Best Offensive Cards 1) Lilith 2) Shin Liu 3) Grendel 4) Medusa 5) Hyde Best Defensive Cards 1) Karron 2) Vodyanoi 3) Undine 4) Ice Wall 5) Kelpy Neutral ------- Offensive Power: *** Defensive Power: *** Best Offensive Cards 1) Ninja 2) Lunatic Hare 3) Werewolf 4) Samurai 5) Cleric Best Defensive Cards 1) Decoy 2) Wonder Wall 3) Horn Chameleon 4) Bosis 5) Archbishop 5.3) Spells and Items --------------------- The spell and items that you will find most useful will depend on your deck and the cards that you have chosen. But, here are some selections that are generally the better cards: Best Items ---------- Catapult Trident Battering Ram Vorpal Sword Water Shield Wind Amulet Platemail Counter Amulet Gremlin Amulet The Hand Petrify Stone Holy Grail Best Spells ----------- Evil Blast Quicksand Senility Squeeze Drain Magic Peace Meteor Land Protect Revelation Remove Curse Relief Reincarnation 5.4) Your Starting Deck ----------------------- Your starting deck depends on chance.

These are your opponents. When you start a new game, you choose what your character looks like, but it doesn\'t give you any special bonus. Each character has a certain type of deck that they control. When you fight them, they will use the same deck (sometimes they have two decks). Since Culdcept Second, now the characters vary slightly with their actions(eg. which spell to cast, offensive or defensive, etc). However, the main difference is still the chaaracter\'s deck. 6.1) Enemy Character List ------------------------- Ryvern Zogol Selena Leo Luthien Pickett Aldha Dr. Morroc Gemmory Whirlwind Gamygin Mullyn Balberit Goligan 7) Game Cards -------------- All game cards have an activation cost. There are 450 game cards in total. Generally, the rarer the card, the more powerful, but still basic cards are always helpful and some cards are better than others regardless of rarity. The Extra Rare cards are acquired when you have completed a set of each terrain and when you complete the entire universe and are very powerful. 8) Game Effect Lists --------------------- These are the lists for the various game effects, which are in Japanese. 8.1) Castle Effects ------------------- When passing the Castle after the checkpoints, players may receive a bonus: Depending on the number of times you\'ve reached the castle How much terrain you possess How much you have stored in the bank Bonus effects from Shrine, All your creatures are healed 20% of MHP (always happens) 8.2) Shrine Effects ------------------- Activation cost of Items and Creatures are increased for three rounds Activation cost of Spells are increased for three rounds Activation cost of Items are reduced for three rounds Activation cost of Spells are reduced for three rounds Activation cost of Creatures are reduced for three rounds All creatures in area take damage=50% of MHP All creatures of a single terrain in an area have strength reduced by 20% All creatures of a single terrain in an area have MHPs reduced All creatures of a single terrain in an area take damage=20% of MHP All creatures of a single terrain in an area are healed All creatures of a single terrain in an area have strength increased All creatures of a single terrain in an area have MHPs increased All players gain MP Bonus salary 30% when you reach the castle Can\'t use item cards for three rounds Don\'t pay for landing on opponent\'s squares (1 round) Don\'t recieve MPs for opponents landing on your squares (1 round) Draw two cards 5% of your MPs is given to all other players MP leader trades MP with person with the least MPs.
