Sage FAQ

====================
Mark of Kri Sage FAQ
--------------------
 by mayonzebrachen
====================

Welcome to my fabulous FAQ. ...Enjoy. You may think this game is too
straightforward to need this. To you, I say: the game proper may be, but the
extras are not quite so obvious. Therefore, it is not a walkthrough, but a
guide to the extras. There may be spoilers contained herein, I'm not good at
judging what's a spoiler and what's not...mostly because I don't really care,
personally. And, I pretty much made up the part about it being a FAQ, I don't
really know how frequently these questions are asked. So sue me. Which brings
me to...

Legal
=====

Use this however you like. I really don't care, as long as you don't alter it,
and you give me credit for typing all this crap up. Making money off of other
peoples' work: that's the American way! Disclaimer: I am not responsible for
damage to any hardware, software, grey matter, or immortal soul that came about
as a result of reading this FAQ.


Q&A Time!
=========
...You know, to make it an actual pseudo-FAQ.

So, like...where is this Sage?
Go up the stairs to the left of the bar, go all the way to the end, and talk to
the guy at the table. Pretty simple...except that he only shows up after you
finish the first level. Guess he's off neutering his dogs, or something...that
would explain why they look so pissed off.

What does he do?
Sits there, pets his dog, flips cards, looks creepy...and gives you access to
all the extras in the game. Knows when to shut up, too. Pretty cool for an old
guy, I'd say.

Why does he sit there all day? Doesn't he have a job?
This _is_ his job. You were supposed to pay him, you cheap bastard.

Can I pet his dog?
No.

So, what's all this business with the cards?
I thought you'd never ask. Here we go...

Levels
======
Yes, the ones from the regular game, only...again.

1. Ruins of Tiru

Baumusu's Challenge:
-Rau'Usu combo with Sword
-Defend 6 attacks from 6 different enemies
-Use Kuzo to collect Save Scroll
-Fua Toko Faahu with Sword
-Kill 9 focused enemies

Tuku Location:
When you climb the second ladder of the game in an area with a waterfall (after
a few wooden footbridges), turn right and climb the stairs. You'll see it.


2. Tapuroku

Baumusu's Challenge:
-Stealth Kill 9 individual enemies
-Stealth Kill two groups of two enemies
-Wall Stealth 1 enemy
-Use Kuzo to discover and read an
  ancient writing
-While unrmed, time your defense
  against a strike to disarm the enemy

Tuku Location:
In the second half (after the mid-level load screen), when you get to a large
gate, don't climb the ladder, yet. First, go right beside it, around the corner
that you (hopefully) wall-stealthed the Horn Blower.


3. Heiadoko

Baumusu's Challenge:
-Kill 9 enemies with your Bow
-Distract an enemy with a boar, then
  stealth kill
-Stealth kill 3 individual enemies
-Find the Tuku
-While unarmed, time your defense
  against a strike to disarm 3 enemies

Tuku Location:
In the second part (the middle of the level), on a log bridge. You'll see it
for sure. Pass it, and in the next area, take the lower route to the right,
through the door, up on the platform, and flip a switch. Then go all the way
back to the wooden gate you saw just after the bridge (and just opened), and go
through it. Climb some ladders, kill some more of these guys (do you hate them
enough yet?), and you'll eventually get to the all-important Tuku.

4. Vaitaku

Baumusu's Challenge:
-Roof Stealth 6 enemies
-Wall Stealth 1 enemy
-Hit a close enemy behind Rau but
  continue to face the enemy in front using the  Sword
-Hit a close enemy behind Rau, combo to
  continue fighting that enemy using the Sword
-Hit a close enemy to the left of Rau
  but continue to face the enemy in front using
  the Sword
-Hit a close enemy to the right, combo
  to continue fighting that enemy using the
  Sword

Tuku Location:
About halfway through the first section, you will happen upon a flight of
stairs to the left of a red banner (and a monkey) that turns left and into
another flight of stairs, which turns right to yet another flight of stairs,
which turns left to bring you to...even more stairs. at the top, you will be on
a platform in a large open area, and across the way you should see a Horn
Blower, which you should promptly shoot in the head. There should also be a
gong (one of those large bells), which you should also shoot, then Roof Stealth
the two guys that come out from under the platform. Now, go back under the
platform and look for a passageway, which leads to another guy, who has his
back turned to you. Kill him and all his buddies, then climb the ladder.
Remember to Wall Stealth, or you'll be in trouble here. Eventually, this path
will lead to the almighty Tuku, and it will be on your left, just before a
dropoff...and an upwards of 10 armored soldiers, if you're not careful.

5. Meifiti

Baumusu's Challenge:
-Stealth Kill two groups of two enemies
-Strike two enemies at the same time
  using a single Taiha back attack
-Strike two enemies at the same time
  using a single Taiha left attack
-Fua Usu Faahuu combo with Taiha

Tuku Location:
After you cross a bridge, in the distance you will see the first gong of the
level, and in the foreground to the right will be a locked gate. Go past the
gong and across the bridge, and on the right should be an archway leading to
nowhere. Send Kuzo out to the perch, and then have him hit the switch for you.
Now return to the locked gate, cross another bridge, and the Tuku should be on
the other side of a pole, amongst other items.


6. Rahtutusai

Baumasu's Challenges:
-Fua Toko Rutu combo with Axe
-Fua Toko Faahuu combo with Axe
-Fua Usu Rutu combo with Axe
-Fua Usu Faahuu combo with Axe
-Ground Impale 10 enemies with Axe
-Remove 20 legs
-Remove 40 heads
-Split 60 torsos

Tuku Location:
Many, many rooms into the level, you will find a switch to the right of the
exit to the room (and entrance to yet another room). Pull it, then go to the
left of the exit, and you should find a small, newly-opened door, leading to a
semi-secret room. It's in there.

I'd have to test it...and that's too much work for something I don't really
care about.


Outfits
-------
Time to play dress-up.

1. The original. Who can pull off this ensemble better than Rau?
You get it at the start of the game, just like access to the Ruins of Tiru.
Isn't that great? Now Rau won't have to go au naturale.

2. I like to call it Evil Rau. I tell you, this is one bad-ass looking outfit.
Full-body black and white war paint and a black loincloth to match.
You get this bad mother by completing the Body Count arena challenge for the
Ruins of Tiru arena.

3. Heiadoko style. Want Rau to wear a cool mask and walk around barefoot? Don't
we all.
You get this one by completing all Body Count arena challenges for the Tapuroku
arena.

4. Vaitaku style. Rau sports a nice black fur coat over his normal outfit.
Makes him feel pimp-like, and keeps him warm on his trip to Vaitaku. Of course,
you get a coat anyway...but this one's so much more posh. Probably my favorite.
You get this one by completing all Body Count arena challenges for the Heidoko
arena.

5. Meifiti style. Sadly, it's not all face masks and leather straps and such
(probably shouldn't say what I think those guys' outfits actually look
like...), like I had hoped. Instead, Rau gets red and black body paint, and a
little too naked for my taste.
You get this one by completing the Body Count arena challenges for the Vaitaku
arena.

6. Rahtutusai style. I'll refrain from the obvious Callista Flockheart joke.
Rau gets all undead and such. Kuzo, too.
You get this one by completing the Body Count arena challenges for the Meifiti
arena.

7. If you don't know, I'll just let you find out. When you do, be sure to check
out Kuzo. Worth getting, just to see it.
...Which you can do by completing the Body Count arena challenges for the
Rahtutusai arena.
