    What is Exile?
    Exile is an often overlooked RPG for the Genesis that came out in 1991.  The
    game is very linear, and the story is confusing and very Eastern, but the
    action is exciting.  Also, the conclusion is wonderful.  If you're looking for
    a decent classic RPG, try this one!
    Why did you write this guide?
    Well, I heard about this game when CJayC over at GameFAQs put up a bounty for
    it, so I looked at the game.  I really enjoyed it, so I went ahead and wrote
    this guide.  Enjoy it!
    Is this the latest version of the guide?
    It depends.  If you got it from my website(go.to/SloDethFAQs) or from GameFAQs
    (www.gamefaqs.com), it is the latest public release of the guide.  If you got 
    it from www.neoseeker.com(I'm a mod on the boards there, look for me), it is 
    probably the latest version, give or take a day.  If you found it at any other 
    site, it may not be the latest version.
    If you're reading this, the guide is probably the final version.  Everything
    relevant to the game is in the guide right now.
    Can I use this guide on my website?
    It depends.  Here's how it is:
    YOU MUST E-MAIL ME(slodeth@iname.com) AND ASK FOR PERMISSION!  A simple "may I
     please use your Exile guide on my website(www.wherever)?" will do it, but any
     and all sucking up is appreciated. :)
    You may not make any changes to it.  You can ask, but the answer will be "no"
     in almost every case.
    You cannot make it seem like you wrote the guide yourself IN ANY WAY.  It must
     be clear that it is my original work.
    You may not re-write it yourself in your own style.  It's called plagiarism.
     Even if you change every word, plagiarism is the theft of IDEAS.
    Can I send you E-mail?
    Yes, but PLEASE read the Contact Info section at the bottom of the guide first!

    ************************   III.  The Walkthrough   ****************************
    Now that you are in town, look around!  Talk to a bunch of the people on the
    left side of town, then talk to the people in the middle.  Once you have four
    people in your party, leave the town through the south.
    In the desert, go forward until you find the oasis.  Enter the water, and you
    get sucked into the first Action area!  You take control of Sadler in a 
    side-view action stage.  You can jump, attack(with various weapons), and use
    Magic(later in the game).
    Go right and fall in the first hole.  In this area, enter the cave in the upper
    right if you want some Heartpoison.  The proper exit is in the upper left.
    After entering that cave, continue right until you find the message from Yuug 
    de Pane.  After a few conversations, you decide you must go to the Shrine of 
    Homis.   Return to Dunes Village for supplies if you need them, then go to 
    Go straight north in El-Is.  Sadler decides to go on his own again.  This area
    is very intertwined, so this may not be the quickest path.  Go left and enter
    the building, then climb the stairs to the left inside.  Jump across the
    platforms to the right and enter the door to find 500G, then return.  Enter the
    door at the top of the stairs, then take the final door on the left.  Go all
    the way left and enter the new building.  Inside, a knight challenges you.
    Kill him with downward thrusts and continue to the right.  Go north to meet
    Yuug de Pane.  The story advances...is it just me, or does it all sound a
    little fishy?  You gain the Kamul Stone and you end up in the Norbian Village.
    Buy new equipment in the shop to the right.  If you head north and stay to the
    right, you find a small path through the trees.  Rumi is captured by the Catit!
    Continue north to leave town, then go to the Faisan Pass.
    Head west.  Enter the cathedral by yourself; I chose to take the left path.
    Jump up the platforms, then go to the level above the door in front of you.
    Take one of the doors, then enter the next door and jump across the gap.  You
    find Rumi's necklace in that door.  Go outside and go north to find a sheep.
    Go back to Norbian Village and talk to the Shepherd.  When he joins your party,
    return to the sheep.  When the Shepherd leaves with his sheep, you get the
    Reflector.  Go into the Cathedral again.
    To find the broken stained glass, get to the very top of the level.  Go back to
    the first door down the right side, then enter the glass door after following
    the paths.  Go in the left door and go left to meet a boss.  Slice him when you
    can.  When he changes form, attack the orange head.  When you kill him, take
    the exit to the left.  The correct door in this hall is the second one from the
    left.  When you take it, you find Rumi on the floor.  After some conversation,
    return to Norbian Village and enter the cathedral in the upper left.  At the
    bottom are the survivors.  Talk to them and return to town.  After another
    talk, you decide to visit Caira.
    Talk to the people around town.  The various merchants are on the right side of
    the screen.  If you talk to the man in the castle, he sends you on a mission in
    Rangle Island.  Take the exit to the south and go there.
    Visit the fallen prince in the upper right cave, then visit the soldier in the
    lower left.  Enter the forest.  Go straight left and go down into the earth.
    Follow the path until you reach an area where you can either take a door or
    fall down a hole.  Take the door and you find Jofre.  She needs you to find
    Moa's diary.  Return to town and grab it; it's right in front of the blue
    statue in the right cave.  Return to Jofre.  Now, she wants you to defeat
    Garuda!  Return to the surface and climb the trees to find another cave.
    Inside is the Garuda - kill it and rescue Milleiu.  Return to town, talk with
    your buddies, then perform the resurrection by standing in front of the blue
    statue.  The ritual fails, so return to Chenobora and go straight north.
    After another conversation, you must travel to the tower of Baiyon.
    Follow the path for awhile.  In the big open room, climb your way to the top.
    This floor has quite a few doors.  The third door from the left has 2500G.
    Take the sixth door and follow the path to the dead end.  Press Up on the green
    thing in the statue's mouth to get the Ritual Book.  This activates another
    simple boss.  Attack around the time when its eyes turn weird colors.  Exit the
    tower and return to Chenobora to speak with Larma.   After the conversation,
    go to Rangle Island and visit the blue statue.  You learn the wisdom of the
    Talk with the people here.  You must go to Oni Island to rescue their leader.
    Talk to the prisoner in a green shirt here.  He tells you to go to Mount Koya.
    In here, go south all the way, then go east until you find a temple on your
    path.  Grab the key inside.  Return to Oni Island.  When you use the key on the
    door, it doesn't work!  Get the Mandrel from one of the prisoners in the lower
    right, then return to the door and use it.  He will join you.  Return to Mount
    The first temple you're looking for is on the first northern path you find.
    It's the building to the east in the group.  Follow the path until you find a
    room with four doors.  If you follow the left door, you eventually find a
    Cantharos.  The real exit is in the second door to the right.  Take the left
    door, then the middle door.  Continue moving left to find the Mandala Chart.
    After leaving this temple, enter another one to the northeast(but not too far
    away).  Take the right path, then take the left path.  Take the door in the 
    upper right to find the Chart.
    Take the two charts to a temple in the northeast corner.  Return to Kongobuji,
    the second temple.  Inside, take the far left door, then the middle door.  Take
    the door directly to the left and follow the path.  Kill the boss here - he is
    tougher than most of the bosses.  Be patient and wait to strike when he does
    his red lightning attack.
    Return to the third temple in the Northeast.  You receive the Jikei light -
    take it to Toro-Do, the temple south of here.  After a cutscene, you return to
    the Homis Shrine.
    Go up and talk to Yuug.  Rumi and Jofre have died, but you must carry on.  Yuug
    suspiciously asks you to enter a mysterious door.  On the other side, you find
    the town Elseus.
    Talk to the people around here.  You learn that the Vakkaso Shrine in the 
    north side of town has a mysterious sword and a daughter up for sacrifice.  Be
    sure to talk to the lady in the upper-left house and the man on the left cliff,
    then enter the shrine.  The path is completely straightforward and uneventful,
    besides the encounter with the famous Pythagoras.  When you reach the temple,
    jump on up and ruin the ceremony.  The boss(straight out of Snow White, eh?)
    attacks...just swing when it gets ready to fire.  Speak to Semere when you
    finish off the boss.
    When you exit the temple and speak to the first old man, you realize that you
    must have gone back in time!  This really is ancient Greece.  Leave the town
    and visit Homis Shrine.
    Look around and talk to the people, then return to Elseus.  Talk to the old man
    who mistook you for Roget.  He says that Pythagoras has traveled to Es-Keso.
    Pursue him there.
    Talk to Pythagoras to the left.  It turns out this is like a parallel 
    dimension, in that the people are mirrored to each other - Pythagoras is 
    Vaigler, and the Heramusso is concerned with the Mandalas.  This is the first
    time in the game I actually thought I understood the story!  Roget was
    reportedly killed by his three pupils, Yubera, Yubero, and Yuberum.  After you
    finish the conversation, go to the building directly north of the entrance.
    Inside, you must find the three killers.
    To find Yubero, take the leftmost door in every room until you reach an open
    room with masks on the wall(it has no path to the left).  Yubero is in the door
    on the right side of the room.  Yuberum is in the next room, if you take the
    left exit from Yubero's room.  He killed Roget himself, so you must kill him!
    He can be tough if you are still at a low level.  Hack at him whenever you get
    a chance and he will die eventually.  You receive the Heramusso after killing
    him.  You can find Yubera by taking the left door from this room and following
    the path.  Exit the building.
    Back outside, go talk to Pythagoras and enter the triangular lake from the
    north side.  Meet Yuug and Pythagoras inside, then walk up to the wall.  Yuug
    reveals that he is the Holy Emperor.  Leave and talk to Pythagoras, then travel
    to Homis Shrine.
    Go inside the shrine and through the mysterious door.  At the bottom is a
    spooky forest, in which you must fight your own shadow(hmm...sounds familiar).
    He is pretty simple.  You then must fight with the Holy Emperor himself.  Be
    sure to activate Fire Slash 3, then stand back and attack when you can.  Jump
    to avoid his flames and dodge his sword attacks.  If you are patient, it won't
    be difficult to kill him.  Sit back and enjoy the ending!  I think this is one
    of the most intelligent endings I've seen for this type of story.
    Here's a transcription of the ending(by request):
    HE: Oh, what a thing to say!  Are you telling me that our ambition of thousands
    years will come to naught!  Sadler, succomb to me and you shall experience
    spiritual awakening.  Come on!  Quickly!
    SAD: DHAAAA...! [strikes Holy Emperor]
    HE: Uh!  Are...you...the son of a demon?  Yipes...!
    SAD: I was dreaming of such a beautiful world where everybody lives in peace. 
    Sadler, I think that this world seems strange and that there is something 
    wrong.  Rumi, I have learned that a utopia for all beings will never exist.
    There was never a being who could bring all mankind together on earth, nor did
    the Holimax ever exist from the beginning.  All the evils, suffering, sorrows,
    and grief in this world, all these will turn into their opposites.  Evil to
    good...suffering to pleasure...sorrow to joy...grief to hope...some day.

    ****************************   V.  Cheating   *********************************
    Do you want to gain experience quickly?  Well, it's simple!  Find an area of
    the game with constantly regenerating enemies, like the ants in the Desert, the
    basement of the Rangle Island forest, or any of the Temples in the East.  If
    you find a safe place, hold down B to constantly attack.  Every enemy will die,
    and your experience quickly soars.  However, if you're too lazy to sit there
    and rack up points, you'll have to do one of the following...
    1) Break out a turbo controller with auto-fire.  Turn on the B button and come
    back in a few hours.
    2) Break out a regular turbo controller and find some way to hold down the B
    button.  The easiest way is to use a guitar capo.  If you don't already have
    one, pick one up for a few bucks at any music store.
    3) Find a capo or something to hold down the B button on a regular controller.
    Every time you gain a level, you will need to come back and release the button,
    then press it back down.  The highest level is 17, so this isn't such a slow
    process.  However, it will take far too much time and work to get to lvl17 by
    fighting ants.  I recommend gaining a few levels, then moving on in the game.
    If you need more experience, gain it in some other level later.  The monsters
    in the later levels are worth MUCH more experience.

    If you're looking for me on a message board, you'll probably find me on the
    GameFAQs boards.  I go to the FAQ Contributor board the most often, and I visit
    the boards of the games I've written for.  Also, I'm a mod on the Neoseeker
    boards, so look for me there.
