PRIVATE ACTIONS >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> If you see " private actions" in upper right corner when you near a town, your hero will be alone and all allies are doing their own private actions, this is a great thing to do as if you pickpocket someone without private actions, your allies "friendship level" and "love level" to you will be lowered...and its affect the ending story (...as I know from other people, there is 86 endings!). Also, if you do a private actions and talk to someone (including your allies) you may see an extra event and you may get some items and some of the PA affect the friendship and love level between you and other allies which is, again, affect the ending. There is one more thing, you should do pickpocket by using private actions, or your party friendship and love level with you will be lowered. JAA's NOTE: See the Private Action List (Claude) section for more info. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> VI. ITEM CREATION >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Star Ocean : The Second Story has a great advantage than other RPG's, Item Creation, with item creation, you can make your own weapon by fuse a weapon and a mineral (like diamond, gold, etc), you can also make a book staring the author, cooking, or even make an illegal item!! all of this item creation is very innovative, and I think all RPG should have them. You can get into item creation command by entering menu screen, enter the item screen, press triangle button and choose item creation. Item Creation could be gotten by have someone learn certain skill (ex: learn skill Good Eye, Recipe, and Kitchen Knife to get Cooking command in item creation). If you level up certain item creation level, you may get super specialty skills (ex: level up the Cooking and Compounding item creation to lvl.4 on each characters, and you get Master Chef super specialty skill), all of these super specialty are more effective than original item creation, but if you want an easy reference of how you can get certain item creation or super specialty. Also, you need certain talents to make item creation have higher success rate. All of these talents are actually random; they are given to one of your character when you get them, some of them are really useful. Now this is a list and explainment about all item creations and talents. _______ /Talents\_______________________________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Originality : Usefull for make "Art" item creation.

Also, the Blessing of Manna talent only used by magician (Celine, Leon, Rena, Noel). You can see your character talent by accessing menu screen, choose skills, and press Triangle button. ________________________________________________________________________ ___________________ /Skills (Non-Battle)\___________________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------ This skills can't be used until you buy certain skill from the skill guild. Once you buy that skill, you can never buy that skill again, and if you get a new character, that skill can be used by that new characters. Skills can be used to increase stats and after certain skills learned, you can get certain item creation (ex: learn Good Eye, Recipe, and Kitchen Knife to get "Cooking" IC) or from the greenish coloured skills, your battle skill can be used (like Flip, you sometimes can automatically go behind the enemy and attack from behind with a certain probability). To learn the skills, easy, just press confirm button in the skill you want to learn. Also, in skill guild, you can talk to the explainer and the advisor to see what skills are gotten by buying certain "Pack of Skills" ("Pack of Skills" contain several skills like the pack of skills "Combat 1" contain several combat skills).

DISC 1 WALKTROUGH: Chapter 1, The Journey Has Begun ---------------------------------- In the beginning, you will make some choose in sound, battle system and difficulty (yes, there is a difficulty, but you must get certain percentage of voice collection to get it). After the opening story, go to menu screen and choose skill, now press triangle and press it again, you will see the talent screen, if you have talent dexterity, continue the game, but if you don't, reset, as this talent will help you a lot in item creation or pickpocketing (it is okay if you don't want). Arlia Village ------------- Items in Arlia Village: Resurection bottle, 200F, Blueberry, Rose Hips, Leather armor, Strawberry Jam, Blackberry. Now go around the village and get all treasure chests you found. Now head to Shingo Forest which is located in the south of the village. After some conversations, Rena will give the strange foreign man a tour, just go into all houses and Rena will explain something. Go back to Rena's house, after some conversation, you will get a more turn to go around the village. Wander around and talk to peoples in this village, and go back to Westa's House, she will prepare a huge dinner for Claude. 3 hours later, go to mayor Regis house just east of Westa's house, and Rena will bring Regis to Westa's house and you will get another conversations. The next day, go to Shingo Forest, and see a flashback. Claude will come and ask if she is okay. On the way back to her house, Rena caught by Alen and taken to his house in Salva. Now check the statue in the corner and it will reveal a secret passage, enter it and check the wounded man. Save, and enter the mine. Salva Underground Mine ---------------------- Items in the underground mine: Rose Hips, 2 Blackberry, Silver, Iron, 2 Gold, Spectacles. You will learn something about the dungeon in StarOcean2...there is a lot of splitted way, crossroad, and the dungeon is long. But, try to explore and remember the screen and make your own map in your brain or try to make your own map...map is far more useful in this kind of dungeon. Also, you usually warned about the boss place by save point, if you find a save point, usually near that save point is a boss. The enemy in this dungeon is not too hard if your level is high enough, however, since you as Rena now, this is harder, try to run into the corner and heal yourself if you hurt badly. If you find some signs about the dragon's nest, you can't enter now. When you reach the deep section of the mine, Alen will catch you and tied you on a strange altar, now Claude will came and free Rena, it is your first boss now. Boss: Alen-Tax, HP: 400 This is a not too hard boss, with Rena as your back-up healing and if your level high enough, this boss is a whimp. After some conversations, Alen back to normal and apologizes. After some more conversation, Claude and Rena will leave Salva and head back to Arlia. In mayor Regis house, Claude tell Regis about Alen which is controlled by the stone. Regis ask Claude to investigate the sorcery globe, he agrees, Rena will ask to join Claude, they agree. Now Rena will leave Regis house, now head to Westa's house and climb the stair, after some conversation, Regis come in and Rena leave the house. Go to the west area of the village and go to the south end of the area, go back to the bridge and talk to Claude. Now level up your characters first (in the mine) and now head to Salva. Salva ----- Items in Salva: Portrait B, Heavy Ring. In this town, buy some better equipment for your hero, and also some healing items if you can. Now take all chest you see and talk to everyone to get some info. Head to Alen's house and talk to him twice, he will give you the Ring of Happiness. Now go to Cross Castle. Chapter 2, The Treasure Hunter -------------------------------- Once you arrive in Cross, it is night, now head to the inn (northwest house) and talk to the innkeeper, she will give you a free stay in the inn. The next day, you can travel around Cross freely. Cross Castle ------------ Items in Cross Castle: Wood Shield, Leather Helm, 500F. _______________________________________________________________________ Do a private action in here first and see the 3 eyed man, YOU ONLY CAN GET OPERA BY DOING THIS PRIVATE ACTION (but if you want Ashton instead of Opera, skip this private action) _______________________________________________________________________ A lot of rumor in this city. First, the king want someone investigate the sorcery globe. Second, the prince rumored has run away. Third, a temple on top of the mountain and near a lake that can only be entered with the king's permission. And fourth, there is a demon bird on top of mountain in the west of the castle. Now you can buy some equipment here, but I recommend don't, money has a pretty major side in this game (especially if you want to buy a bandit gloves for 40.000F, which allow you to pickpocket, later in the walkthrough). I recommend you to buy all the skill from the skill guild (it will allow you learn new skill which help you a LOT in your later quest, also if you buy one, it will always kept and even if you get new character, the new character can learn this skill) Go talk to the receptionist in the castle and register your name, she will give you a time to explore the castle, do so and get some chests, you may must talk to some people here and talk to a guard guarding the king chamber to finally meet the king. When you could, talk to the king and ask all the 3 choices, the king will send you to investigate the sorcery globe. The king also gives you a passport and 600F. When you return to center area of the town, there is 2 wizard fighting, after some fight and conversations, she decided to join you in order to investigate the cross cave and get a treasure. You have 2 choices, the first is to let her join, and the second to not join you. But any of the choices will make her join you so it doesn't matter. Now, head to Cross Cave (near the sign). Before you go to Cross Cave, level up a bit and buy a few blackberries. Cross Cave ---------- Items in Cross Cave: Blueberry, 2 Sweet Syrup, Artemis Leaf, 2 Lavender, 2 Cure Poison, ?MINERAL, ?JEWELRY (Reverse Doll), Stink Gel, Feather Pen, 600F, Resurrect Mist, ?ITEM (Aquaberry), 2 Blackberry, Tri-Ball, Magic Canvas, Iron, Green Beryl, 700F, Ancient Treasure, Limits of the Wind (?). As I told you, all of the dungeons in StarOcean2 are like this, but again ,make a map in your brain or a paper to make thing easier. The enemy here are pretty easy, just make sure Celine and Rena have enough MP. At the north area (where there is a save point), an event occurs, and a secret passage revealed to the west, now heal and save. This room filled with 5 treasure chest, 3 of them are normal items, 1 is the treasure and 1 is boss chest (the boss chest is the upright most chest), the boss in this cave is actually optional but i think you should fight it since you can gain a lot of exp and fol. Boss: 2 Gargoyle, HP: 1500 each This boss is pretty easy, just make sure Celine attack with all MP and Rena as a back-up, and Claude as the fighter. As long as Claude don't trapped between the 2 Gargoyles, I'm sure you can win this battle. After that, leave the cave, in front of the way out, Celine ask if she can join you, now it is the real thing, make her join you, she is vital to your quest. Whatever, now go to Clik (a town near a lake and coast, but not the cave). If you somehow managed to get around 45.000 F, go to Herlie, a port town that more far than Mars village (read the sign if you can't find it, and if you don't have the talent dexterity, don't bother to buy it, but don't worry you can do pickpocket later on other planet by having a support item which help you a lot to pickpocket by machinery item creation) and buy a bandit gloves in one of the shops here. Also try to buy all the skills available in there, I recommend don't buy any equipment or you will be very short in money. To do a pickpocket, go near a people and press square button, if you fail you don't get anything and you cant steal from him anymore, but if you succeed you will get an item or fol. Chapter 3, Big City, Big Disasters ------------------------------------ Clik ---- Items in Clik: Lyre, Grain, Seafood. This city is pretty big, but before you enter the town, push that square button and do a private action here. Now talk to Philia, a girl near the fountain (north of the fountain), steal Mischief from her too if you have the bandit gloves and talent dexterity (simply reset if you fail) after that go out and enter the town as a group. After you go around and buy skills or equipment, talk to the captain of the ship (southwest area of the port) he tell you to go around first, upon entering the center square, a little thief stole your wallet. Talk to the 2 kids near the east ship and now go to the first area of the town, you find the thief near the bar. After some conversations, you will get a tour from Ketil now, and first,go to: * Ketil's house, in the Clik first area, centersouth house * On the way to the fountain plaza * Crepe shop, near the fountain * Ice cream shop, southwest near the fountain * Restaurant, near the way out to the first area * Clothes store, northwest near the fountain After you do all of them, talk to the kids in port, finally Ketil will be allowed to play with them. Now talk to the captain and he tell you to do last-minute check, go to fountain plaza, an earthquake will occurs. You automatically go to the hill north of fountain plaza, talk to the captain and he will give back the passport, now go upstairs and a tsunami will occurs. Talk to Ketil here and now level up first and go to the Mars Village. Mars Village ------------ Items in Mars Village: Silk Robe, Sour Syrup, Purple Mist, Silence Card. Now go find any chests and if you ready, go to the house in northeast (west area town). The elder of Mars will tell that the children was kidnapped by the bandits, and they want 500.000F and Book of Secret Seal. They hire a sword man called Dias and Rena recognize him. After some conversations, Rena decided to leave your party and join Dias. After some conversation and flashback with Dias, go talk to the current party, Rena will ask Claude to let Dias join them, Claude refuses and Rena get angry, now Rena will go back to Dias. After some conversation, go to item shop and buy 20 blueberries and several blackberries, you need them as Rena is not in your party but don't ever buy the flame blade as you find one in the forest. Talk to Dias when you ready. The next day, Dias says that he has received the Mud Boots (used to cross a swamp) from the elder, now be ready and head to the forest. In the first screen of the forest, save in the save point first. Mars Forest ----------- Items in Forest: ?HERB (Rose Hips), Amber Robe, Resurrection Bottle, Dummy Doll, Flame Blade, Mandrake. Early, you will attacked by a group of bandits, they have HP around 500 each, but you have Dias, so they should not be a trouble. This dungeon, is tough, you have to be in pretty high level or you will be in trouble with the enemy in here, you may have to go back to the village to sleep or buy more blue/blackberries. After defeating several groups of bandits, a little girl come to you and ask you to help her, the guard eventually come and attack you, kill them. After some conversation, a boss attacks you. Boss: Azamugil, HP: 2000 4 Shielders, HP: 1400 each Easy, be sure to heal Dias when his HP is low, concentrate on healing Dias and you should not have much trouble defeating them After you defeat them, open the cabin and free the children, now leave the area and you will find Claude, after some conversations, Rena will be back in your party. After some talk with Eglas and the Elder, try to go out of the town, Celine will after you and you will be back in Celine's house. Talk to Eglas and he will explain about how you cross to the continent of El. The next day, Eglas tell you to go to the Lacour continent first. Now head to Herlie. Chapter 4, Warrior with Two Dragons ------------------------------------- Herlie ------ Items in Herlie: Ring Mail, Sinclair Sabre, 1200F, Leather Boots. _______________________________________________________________________ IF you want Ashton instead of Opera, read this chapter. If you want Opera instead Ashton, SKIP this section. Ashton, is a fighter like Claude, but with different sword, he will be your second-best fighting character in your party if you have him. But if you like far-projectile weapon, you may want Opera. I usually choose Ashton, because he is the second best fighter and Opera is weak and I dont like her far attacking weapon. _______________________________________________________________________ When you enter Herlie, talk to the two people near the entrance, they will tell there is a two headed dragon in Salva mine. Now go back to Salva and enter the mine (a passageway right near Alen's house). The soldier will let you enter and tell you there is a warrior who is after the dragon too. Salva Underground Mine (2) -------------------------- Items in the other section of the Mine: Maple Syrup, Brigandine, Iron, Aquaberry, Golden Bracelet, Cinderella Glass, Diamond, Star Ruby. After you go a few steps from the sign "dragon's nest", a warrior in a black robe appear from north way, go to the north way and pick up several chest there, now west and south and finally save in the save point. Go to east and you will find the warrior fighting the dragon. After some conversation, the warrior introduce as Ashton Anchor, and in order to free himself from the two-headed dragons, he ask to join you. You have 2 choices, let him join or leave him. If you let him join, Rena will name the 2 dragons Gyoro and Ururun. If Ashton in your party, you may do his sidequest now, or if you want, you can just go to Herlie and go to Lacour continent. But I think you should do his sidequest, as you get a lot exp and some good treasures from his sidequest. If you want to do his sidequest, go to Mars Village and go to Elder's house library, look at the bookcase and you get 3 choices, choose the last one. The party will suggest to get the Silver Goblet and Tears of the King. Now go to the Mountain Palace (left from the bridge that lead to Clik). Mountain Palace --------------- Items in Mountain Palace: Luna Tablet, Crystal, ?HERB (Artemis Leaf), ?JEWELRY (Shiny Earring), Resurrection Bottle, Cure Stone, Sweet Syrup, Crest Rod, Amber Robe, ?MINERAL (Damascus), Trikabut, Fairy Toilette, Damascus, Emerald Ring, Fairy Statue, Cestus, ?MINERAL (Orihalcum). The enemy in this dungeon is very hard, so build up your party first, the archers is the most annoying, so kill them first. This dungeon is very amusing, so again, make a map, but in the first area, go west not to north, as to north is for Opera's sidequest, but you may want to go there also as there are a few good items. As always, if you find a save point, save and heal. And now go to northwest, get the 2 chests and check the center area of the room. After some conversation, a boss appear and attack you. Boss: Nightmare, HP: 9000 The only thing to beware that this boss will cast Tetanus Wind, which is annoying, but if your level is 20 or so, your attack will hold him and will not let him counterattack. Use your best Killer Moves and spell to beat this boss. After some conversations, go back to the soldier and sleep. Now head to Lusgus Mountain which is west of Cross Castle. There is no item in there and the dungeon is short and easy, but the enemy here is tough, so beware. In the first area, go to the left path, now go straight and finally face the boss. Boss: Xain, HP: 20000 This battle is pretty hard because the demon bird is flying and keep attacking you from the air, but this bird will not cast any spell, so keep attacking with headsplitter and shooting star. Use Energy Arrow and make sure Rena have the Cure All spell. Otherwise, this battle is easy if your level high enough. If Celine or Rena MP gets too low, use blackberry to heal their MP. After some conversation, go out the mountain and head back to Salva Mine. In Salva Mine, go to where Ashton fights the dragon. In this point, the two dragons can't be released from Ashton and Ashton will join your party permanently. When this sub quest is finally done, head back to Herlie. Chapter 5, The Tournament --------------------------- In Herlie, buy whatever you want and if you ready, talk to the captain and cross the sea to the Hilton port in Lacour. Hilton ------ Items in Hilton: none This is the port town of Lacour kingdom, however, buy all the skills and buy what you need. Also, you can buy some tool to do some item creation here. Now go to the inn and sleep here, there is an event. Now go out and go to the Lacour Castle. Lacour Castle ------------- Items in Lacour Castle: Star Ruby. There are a lot of people in here, so try to do some pickpocket here. You can't buy any weapons here, because the tournament in Lacour is starting, but you can buy several items and skills in here. Most people here are talking about the tournament. Now talk to the receptionist in the castle, she will tell there is no audience allowed when the tournament start, now try to leave the castle and Rena will talk something, now enter the castle again and talk to receptionist, she will register you for the tournament. She will tell you to get a sponsor from one of the weapon shop. There are 4 weapon shops in this castle, all of them are in the east center area of the town. Here is the list of what they offer: 1."Counterpunch" Bald man near a Cannon. Equipment : Sinclair Sabre,Brigandine,Buckler,Plate Helm,Silver Greaves. Items : Sweet Syrup,Mixed Syrup,Blackberry. JAA Comm. : This shop is has weak attack, but have high defense. 2."Knockout" Man with hat outside near the red arrow sign.

JAA Comm. : This is a good sponsor, high attack and high defense. 4."Straight" Man with hat standing near woman in armor. Equipment : Gusguine,Banded Mail,Knight Shield,Banded Helm,PlateGreaves. JAA Comm. : Also a good sponsor, but have stronger attack than "Slayer". Whatever you choose, you now can build up your party now, but you have to sleep in Hilton's inn as if you stay in Lacour's inn, you will trigger the story and you can't leave the castle. If you ready, now sleep in the inn for free, after some conversation, Rena decided to take a walk around the city, go to the west end of the city and go north and talk to Sufia. After some conversation, go to the bar and talk to all people in here and try to leave, Dias will come, after some conversation, go back to the inn. The next day go to castle and go to the tournament place. Talk to the counter and register, after some conversation, Rena will after Dias, After some conversation, go to Gamgee's house. After some conversation, go to the bar, on your way there, 3 men attack you, defeat them and you will get the Sharp Edge. Now go to the bar, after some conversation, go to the battle stadium, enter the supporters place and find your party. Someone will tell you that Claude has won his first fight. After Dias has won the fight, go talk to Gamgee and now return to your seat. After some series of fight, Claude will reach the final round and face Dias. Before the battle, talk to enough people in here and go back to your seat to watch the final round. After Claude lose the fight, the party go to see him. After some conversations, Claude gets the 2nd place in the tournaments, talk to whoever has sponsored you and you will get all equipments and items you use in the tournament. After that, go to west area of the castle and north and enter Gamgee's house, he will give you the Sharp Edge sword. Whatever you do, don't get rid of this sword as you only can get Claude's strongest sword by fuse this sword with Mithril (by customize). Now do anything you want in Lacour castle as if you finish the Sanctuary of Linga dungeon, this castle will completely empty (except the people in castle). Chapter 6, The Other One -------------------------- _______________________________________________________________________ If you already have Ashton and don't want Opera, skip this chapter. But if you don't have Ashton and want Opera, read this chapter. First, go to Arlia and do a private action here, go to mayor Regis's balcony and talk to Opera, than go out of the village and enter Arlia as a group to the Shingo forest and you will see Opera's broken ship (YOU MUST SEE THIS EVENT TO GET ERNEST). _______________________________________________________________________ In order to get Opera, be sure to see private action in Cross Castle (the 3 eyed man) so if you haven't see it until now, its too bad, you can't get Opera. If you have fulfilled above, Instead going to Linga, go back to Hilton port and enter the bar, after some conversation, Opera join you. Now go to Cross Castle and talk to the king, the king will give you permission and 10.000F after you done. Now head to mountain palace. In the mountain palace, go north in the first area, after you go through this dungeon pretty deep, there is an event and Opera will ask to join you as permanent member. 1st to join, 2nd to not let Opera join. After that, more further in the cave, you see an event and a boss attack you. Boss: 2 Flare Lizards, HP: 5000 each This is a tough boss, you really want Celine and Rena here, have Claude and Opera attack one of the lizard constantly with killer moves and normal attacks. Try to attack the lizard from behind, as if you get hit with the flame, you highly seems to die or at least near-death. So beware. When you reach the end of the palace, an event occurs. Now leave the cave and head back to Lacour continent and go to Linga. You may want to do a little quest, first talk to a traveler named Radol in Salva, tell him that Herlie is north of Salva, next go to Mars, and talk to Radol again, tell him that Herlie is further more to the east. Now go to Hilton and talk to Radol again, and tell him you can go back to Herlie by ship. Radol finally reach Herlie, talk to him in Herlie and he will give Funny Slayer (dont get rid of this). After all of this finally go to Linga. Chapter 7, Sanctuary of Linga ------------------------------- Linga ----- _______________________________________________________________________ If you want get Precis in your party, read this section, but if you want Bowman instead of Precis, skip this. Precis can use long-range projectile attack, just like Opera, but Bowman is bad compared with Precis, he is weak and his attack range is very short also, almost all of his killer moves take a lot of time and not too useful. To get Precis, enter Linga and you'll see Precis and Bobot there, after some conversations, buy some items in here and get out. Do a private action now, go to the bowman's pharmacy in west house (north area of Linga). You will see Precis with Bobot in here, she will take you to her house. After some conversation, she will ask to join your party and you get 2 choice. If you decided to take her, she will wait you in Linga's gate. Now Precis will be in your party as a permanent member. _______________________________________________________________________ Now, enter Linga and enter the house just near where you meet the girl (Precis) with Bobot there. Prof. Keith is busy now, so go to the Bowman's pharmacy. In there, Bowman ask you to get a rare herb in sanctuary of Linga, then he will help you. Now enter the Sanctuary of Linga, just a cave near Linga. Sanctuary of Linga ------------------ Items in Sanctuary of Linga: Might Chain, Ruby, Mixed Syrup, Rainbow Diamond, Poison Check, Straight Punch, Twin Edge, ?GUARD (Rune Buckler), Cinderella Glass, Liquor Bottle, Lavender, Bubble Lotion, Rose Hips, Aceras, Mandrake, Artemis Leaf. A note of this dungeon, that you only could take one rare herb at a time. Clarisage is the easiest, but I don't know is this affect the story or the ending if you take the other one. Dilwhip, a new rare herb, but hard to find, you must not take any other regular herb (like lavender) in order to find it. The enemy in this dungeon is pretty easy, if you bring Precis, build up her first as she low on level now. Bring several blackberries and blueberries also. This dungeon is long and you may have to get back to Linga's inn several times. You will be easily get lost with all the crossroad and split way, but with several trips and hard work, you can do it. If you didn't find any rare herb (clarisage and Dilwhip), don't give up, just search and you will eventually find it. As always, if you find a save point in a purplish area, be ready for boss! Boss: 2 Vissayers, HP: 10000 each Be careful with this boss, they can swallow you characters, if all your characters get swallowed, it is game over. So try to trap one of them with normal attacks and with Celine's Energy Arrow, this boss is easy as long as you don't mess up. Now go all the way back to Linga (if you found one of the rare herb). In Bowman's pharmacy, Bowman finally will help you. He will go to Keith's house and calling him with a very loud voice. One of Keith assistant will come out and tell you to go inside. After some conversation, you will stay a night at Bowman's house. At that night, Bowman will offer to join you (if you have Precis, he will not offer to join. If you don't have Precis, let him join. The next day, head to Lacour Castle. Chapter 9, The Energy Stone ----------------------------- In the castle, a soldier ask are you the refugees, and you will noticed that all people here have excavated to the castle and other towns because of the monster attack. Go to castle and talk to the receptionist and talk to Gamgee (in the center stair) and he will give you a Plate Mail. Go to the laboratory (go east,east,and down the stair).Go to the main area of the laboratory and after some conversation, the little kid, Leon will tell you to get the energy stone to power-up the Lacour Hope. Leon now join you as a guest and also give you a link combo. Now go to Hilton port and be prepare to go to Hoffman ruins. Talk to one of the people in Hilton west area (near the ship) and he will ask are you ready to go to Hoffman ruins which is located in an island (don't worry, you can go back to Hilton anytime). After you land in the island go north and you will be in world map, I suggest you building up first to around lvl 32 as you can just go back to Hilton anytime, just talk to the sailor (or whatever he is) in the coastline. When you ready, go to Hoffman ruins in the center of the island. Hoffman Ruins ------------- Items in Hoffman Ruins: Cure Stone, Recoil Bracelet, Angel Hair, Light Box, Aquaberry, Dictionary, 2 Cure Paralysis, Holy Mist, 2 Green Beryl, Orichalcum, 1-up Pudding, Gold, HyperBall, Diamond, Liquor Bottle, Fruit Syrup, Material Kit, PiyoPiyo Bomb, Hot Syrup, Peep Half, Blackberry, Hexagram Card, Paralysis Card, Sour Syrup, ?HERB (Artemis Leaf), The 'Spring', Shrum Ring. First, don't let Leon enter a single battle, as only this time that Leon join you, and its mean in Rena's scenario, you cant get Leon as a permanent member (a guest, I guess). The enemy here is easy, except the Salamanders, their flame is dangerous so kill him right away and hold him before it can fire its deadly flame to you. The dungeon is...amusing!! even with a map this is a confusing dungeon. If you find a switch, some of them only make your HP half from before, but some of them also create a hole to some treasure chests. Before you go inside, Leon will open the door and now, go to north way first, and get the chests, now go back and go left and save in the save point. Go down the lift and you will enter the main area of the dungeon. I cant help you much, just pick up every chest you found as a remark that you have entered that room, after and after, you will see a save point, save. Now as always, prepare for a boss time. Boss: 2 Harphinxes, HP: 36000 each If you have Celine's Thunderstorm or Leon's Shadow Flare, use it, as they weak to lightning and dark. Concentrate your attack on one Harphinx and beware that they can cast Thunderstorm also, so when they cast it, hit them so they will die eventually, just make sure you cast Thunderstorm or Shadow Flare all the time and Rena as the healer. Now you have gotten the energy stone, now go all the way back to the world map and go to Hilton (I know its long and amusing). As you leave, if you have Opera in your party and have seen the event where you see Opera's crashed ship, an event and conversation will occurs, and a boss attack you. Boss: Ghost, HP: 8600 its weak to light and this boss is very weak, no problem. After finishing the boss, Opera and Ernest offer to join you, choose 1st choice to get Opera and Ernest. Choose 2nd choice to not let them join. All is finished and now go back to Lacour Castle. In Lacour Castle, talk to receptionist and after a conversation, head to the Front line Fort (the only place you haven't visited in Lacour continent). Chapter 10, The Lacour Hope ----------------------------- There is no treasure here, although some weapon shop sells a pretty good items. After you ready, talk to the general in his office, the general is briefing the soldiers and Dias also among them. After some conversation with Dias and Claude, go to the place between the armory and the shops and talk to Dias. After some conversation, you will get a choice, 1) Let Dias join or 2) Leave him alone. Now go to the outside north area and talk to Claude, after some conversation, the party will sleep in the infirmary. The next day, talk to at least 3 people and when you enter the main hallway, a monster attack the front line. Go to outside north and face the boss. Boss: Shin, HP: ???? This boss is undefeatable, but if all your characters die, game over. So defend yourself, it is best to use the strategy "stay away from enemy" but let Claude keep attacking Shin to hold him cast a spell. Also, use magics to hold its attack. After around 1 minute, the battle end. Several days later, the energy stone has not yet delivered. Talk to all people in this fort and sleep in the infirmary, a soldier will come in and tell you that monsters have attacked the fort again. Now Leon will came and if Precis in your party, he will give Precis Thunder Punch weapon. Leon now will activated the Lacour Hope and after the FMV, the monster get wiped away. After some conversation, you automatically will be back in Lacour Castle, the king decided to do an attack to the monsters. You will be in Hilton and after a conversation with Dias and others, the ship will be prepared to set sail. In the ship, Lacour Hope started to attack the monster but it wont work against Shin, the other monster attack you, beat them, and Shin will attack you again. Boss: Shin, HP: ???? He is still undefeatable, this time without time limits, so just lose to him. You wake up on a beach, someone will tell you that you have reached the continent of El, now head north to a very small village. After some conversation, Claude come and the party ask him if he is okay. Now enter the elder's house (northeast). After some conversation, you told to go to Eluria tower. Now go to the storage shed in the door to the west of this village to get items and buy some items (to get the items, just check the things in the back of the shed). Shed ---- Items in Shed: 2 Plate Mail, Rune Cap, Giant Fist, Metal Fang, 2 Silver Robe, Shield Sword, Veil Piercer, 2 Silver Greaves, Fine Shield. Before you leave the Shed, the guards will give you the ID Card. As you leave the village, an event occurs where Ronixis decided to after Claude in Expel planet. Now this is a good time for some item creation, if you have machinery item creation, try to get "Magician Hand" accessories by machinery (if you get material kit in the hoffman ruin,otherwise,later). JAA's NOTE: Magician hand item is an accessories which increase the successfull rate of pickpocketing, this item is absolutely needed for pickpocketing. There are other items that can be created by Machinery which increase other item creation succesfull rate (like survival kit which help you to do succesfull survival itemcreation). Now head to Eluria Tower (a huge tower near the village). Eluria Tower ------------ Items in Eluria Tower: Meteor Ring, Steel Helm, Stone Check, Holy Mist, X-Box, 2 Crestier Guard, Trickster, Music Tool, Cure Paralyse, Sapphire, Aquaberry, Cure Stone, Star Ruby, Crystal, Ultra Punch, Fresh Syrup, ?GUARD (Core Plate), Murasame, Giant Fist, Liquor Bottle, Splinter. The enemy here, is pretty easy, but the one to be worried is the cold lizard, they like the salamanders in Hoffman Ruins but more powerful. This dungeon is pretty easy, in the first floor go north and get the chests and you will see a statue (used for getting password, but since you read this walkthrough you can skip it). Now head to the west stair and enter the 2nd floor. Now go left (yes, there is a passage in there) and get the chests (get that Trickster item and equip it in one of your non-battle character, NOW). Now head north, save, and go under the light. Now keep heading to the next floor until you find a statue that ask the password, enter 1-A, 2-P, 3-O, 4-C, 5-A. Now get the chest in the screen (if you want, you can explore first to get more items) and head west. head west and up to the next floor. First go to left and check the red door first. Go trough the way and see an event, where Claude "beamed up" and gone. A hour later, Claude back and join back the party. Now head to northwest and check another red door and go through. Save, heal, and head north to face Shin again. Boss: Shin, HP: 21000 This time, you can beat Shin, but be careful and be sure and bring Rena here. His most damaging attack is he throw something to you, so use an attack spell to stop him. But if your level is high enough and you bring Rena, he will die soon. Now head north, you will find 3 passages, right first to get some chests. Now back, and choose left and get the chests. Now go back and head to center. Enter the right passage, go up to the next floor where you find the sorcery globe. After some conversation with the Ten Sages, a sage attack you. Boss: Berle, HP: ???? This is another unwinnable battle and you must survive until the battle automatically end, so stand guard and use strategy "stay away from enemy" and the battle end. After the battle end, you have a conversation and a FMV, the party wake up in a forest in Energy Nede. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> VIIb. DISC 2 WALKTROUGH: Chapter 11, The Energy Nede ----------------------------- You will wake up in a forest in Energy Nede, Rena will tell that she know this place. After some conversation your party will be teleported to Central City's City Hall. The mayor of Central City, Narl will tell you about Nede's history. After some conversation, you can control Claude again. Central City ------------ Items in Central City: none. In this city, a tool shop sells a lot of items that allow you to use some item creation, so buy something in there, also, there is a hat named "Beret" that increases the success rate of any item creation. In the weapon shop, you can buy a lot of stronger weapon in there, but try to conserve your money. In the city hall, there is a publishing company that helps you publish your book (you can create the book using "Publishing" super specialty). After a while, you can go back to the publisher to get a lot of money. Before you head to North City, build up first. Also, you can try to get Claude strongest weapon: Eternal Sphere, by "Customize" item creation (Combine the Sharp Edge + Mithril to get Minus Sword, and then combine Minus Sword + Mithril, I don't know if you need Magical Rasp first). Now head to North City. JAA's NOTE: When you leave city hall, go west, you will see a woman, she is Chisato and you only can get her if you see this event. North City ---------- Items in North City: none The people in this city know a lot more about Nede's and the ten sages, so talk to them to gain some information. When you reach the stair, Chisato will be near you again and run away. Now finish your shopping business here and go to the "Home" (northeast house). Talk to the receptionist, she will introduce you to Artis. After some conversation, a researcher will input Claude data. After the 2nd character in your party, a Synard will goes mad and Claude decided to attack the Synard. Boss: Synard, HP: 43000 The important thing in this battle is to stop its breath. Use Celine's thunder-based spells and Rena as a healer. Make Claude attack constantly with normal attacks or killer moves (Twin Slash is great if you have it). If its cast it breath, run behind it and attack from behind. After some conversations, you will be transported into a house. A man come in and introduce himself as Noel. After some conversation, Noel decided to help you to catch a wild Synard. Now go to the Synard Cave. Items in Noel's House: Pet Food, 50000F, a skill book (?). In the world map, you notice there is a red barrier surrounding the map, it is the Nede's class 9 shield or Energy Nede. Now enter the Synard Cave. Synard Cave ----------- Items in Synard Cave: Dream Bracelet, Heraldry Teory, ?MINERAL (Moonite),Resurrection Bottle, Cinderella Glass, Flying Hawk Robes, Fruit Syrup, ?MINERAL (Meteorite). The enemy in this dungeon is easy, just hit them constantly with normal attack. The only thing to worry is the birds (?). This dungeon is really large, so you will be encounter a lot of enemy in here. In the first screen, Noel will talk something. Try to make a map, because this dungeon is pretty amusing, but once you get the way, this is easy. Once you reach pretty deep inside the cave, on the way to get the chest (filled with a flying hawk robes), you will see Chisato again. Now head back and choose the south way, take Chisato's ID card and go east. You will see the Synard here, but you still can't reach it. Go south, now west and down the stair, get the 2 chests on the center of the screen and save in a save point in the west center area, heal. Now head north to face the distruber. Boss: 2 Archmene, HP: 40000 each Since this boss is weak to lightning, use Celine's lightning-based spell. Have Claude and others concentrate the attack on one Archmene. The Archmene can move around the battlefield pretty fast and it can't be hit while it moves, so trap one Archmene with 2 fighters and use lightning spell to destroy them. After some conversation, you get the Synard and you have a choice to let Noel join you or not. Choose whatever you want, and now you have a Synard, you can travel around the world map freely (not really free, sigh). First don't go around the new towns first, or you will be confused. Head back to Central City when you ready. Chapter 12, Field of Knowledge -------------------------------- Head to the newspaper room in the city hall and talk to Chisato, she will offer to join you (you should). Now talk to Narl and he will tell you to get the power of Nede's from the 4 fields. Narl then give you the Rune Codes. Try to leave, and Narl will give you another Link Combo. Now you can choose what to be finished first (Knowledge, Power, Love or Courage). I will arrange the walkthrough from the easiest, so the first one is Knowledge, Courage, Power, and Love. And I also arrange what city you should visit in order, the first one is Giveaway, Fun City, L'Aqua, and Armlock. First, go to Giveaway (in the snowy land). Giveaway -------- Items in Giveaway: Fairy Glass. Buy some items in here and try to do some private actions. This city is not important to the story, but you can gain the secret information of North City from here (later). Now head to the Field of Knowledge (in an island in the north sea). Field of Knowledge ------------------ Items in Field of Knowledge: Jeanne's Helm, Alpha Box, Mirror of Wisdom, Rune Metal, Fruit Syrup, Great Punch, Fairy Glass. This is the easiest of all 4 fields, so the enemy shouldn't be much trouble (only those knight with big shield and wizards which can be a trouble). The objective in this dungeon is to activated all 6 balls around the center light door. You can teleport around using the yellow square. If you press confirm button in front of the mirror, you will be teleported to certain area. After you activated all 6 balls, return to the first area and go out to world map and save (heal in an inn if you need). Now go back to the field and enter the center mirror, be ready to face the bosses. Boss: Magic Hand, HP: 60000 Work Box, HP: 30000 Guard Box, HP: 30000 2 Magic Boxes, HP: 30000 each This boss is pretty easy, but one thing to worry is the magic hand can fire a big laser that cross the battlefields, so dont let any of your characters in the centerline. First, destroy the the boxes first and then the magic hand (spread your fighter into 2 direction, Claude attack the Magic Hand, the other fighter attack the other enemies). Claude will hold the Magic Hand before its laser shot. Use Celine's mass attack spell constantly (like Lunar Light or Southern Cross, if you have it). After you defeat the guards, you will see an event and you will gain the Jewel of Intelligence. Chapter 13, Field of Courage ------------------------------ Fun City -------- First, head to Fun City (one of the 2 towns in the big continent). Items in Fun City: none Fun City has a lot of attractions and you can play some of them now (although you don't need it to end this game). There is a shop that sells pretty good items in here, and you may want to play a bet in Bunny Race, cooking contest or the fighting tournament. You can try the fortune teller here that give you info about your quest like how many % you have succeed in item creation, etc. After you play some and finish the business in here, head to Field of Courage. However, if you want a REALLY useful item by pickpocket, here is the place, try to steal from the bunny that sells tickets in bunny race room, you will get the bunny shoes which make the user will be running very fast in the battle. You may want to try the bunny race here, because you can get the bunny shoes which help you a lot on a lot of battles. Field of Courage ---------------- Items in Field of Courage: Sour Syrup, Stone Check, Mithril Greaves, Jeanne's Shield, Seltzer, Liquor Bottle. All you need to do is follow my guide; the enemy here is not much of trouble, if you want all chests in here, go explore (although the treasures are not worth to get). First, head northwest, west, north, west and you reach a small altar. Check the altar and you get the Warrior's Statue. Head all the way back to the first screen and go east, east and up the stair. Save and heal, now head east to face the boss. Boss: Guardian, HP: 130000 This is easy, have Claude use Twin Slash constantly and the other fighter/s trap him from behind. Use Celine's best spell or Leon's Shadow Flare (he weak to Dark) and use Rena as a healer (as always) and he will be history soon. After you finish him, you will see an event. After that, he give you the Jewel of Courage. Chapter 14, Field of Power ---------------------------- Head to L'Aqua now (a port city near Fun City shore). L'Aqua ------ Head to L'Aqua now (a port city near Fun City shore). Items in L'Aqua: none You cant do any private actions in here, so if you want some pickpocketing, hold it (although the items stolen are pretty good). There is not much to do here, there is no shop. When you ready, head to Field of Power (go to the road in the snowy mountain). Field of Power -------------- Items in Field of Power: Rune Full Moon, Melty Lotion, Assault Bomb, Jeanne's Armor, Marvel Sword, Blackberry, ?GUARD, Atlas Ring. ______________________________________________________________________ Note: Kill at least one group of Yeti, if you dont, you will stuck in this dungeon forever, be sure to save outside and use a backup file. Okay, this is pretty amusing, the enemy in here is strong and have high HP. In certain places, you will fight Yeti, in the battle, hold the Yeti's to not touch the switch in your back, otherwise, the battle end and rocks fall from above and you cant go trough the way, so try to spread your fighter to hold them and kill them quickly. This dungeon is pretty hard, you may have to be here a while if you want to finish this dungeon on your own. ______________________________________________________________________ There is a shortcut of the Field of Power if you get all the caves closed off on you. There is a ledge. To the left between the first and Second caves going up from the bottom of the mountain through the upper right cave that actually goes through. Go out on the ledge and it gives you scene about great scenery and asks you if you want to yell and make an echo. If you tell it yes it causes an avalanche which dumps you on the ground and you end up outside of the field of power again. But don't call if you haven't get the Gem of Power. Also, be sure to get Atlas Ring in this mountain. When you reach a big bridge with a save point in front of it, save and heal and when you walk in the center of the bridge, prepare for a boss. Boss: Guardians, HP: 130000, Strong: Fire, Water, Earth, Weak: Dark. This is the same guardian when you fight it in Field of Courage, so use the same strategies. Just do your best as you have high level this time. After the battle, go north and enter the ruins, check the altar. After the event, you will get the Jewel of Power. Chapter 15, Field of Love --------------------------- Armlock ------- Head to Armlock this time (in the same continent with Fun City). Items in Armlock: none This town has the best buyable weapons, so visit the shop. There is also a saleswoman where you can buy some minerals and tools. When you ready, go to the Field of Love (floating in the air in the center of the map). Field of Love ------------- Items in Field of Love: Serpent Tooth, Holy Rod, Resurrection Mist, Hot Syrup. The enemy in here is pretty easy, except the master wizard and breakwings, if you already in high level (around 65), this dungeon should be pushover. This dungeon is straight forward and very easy, so you shouldn't have much trouble with it. You can check the red balls to turn around the way to go through. In the first area, go right to get the Serpent Tooth, now go west and west again. Check the ball and go north (right way). Check the ball and get the chests. Go back and choose the left way. Go north, save and heal. When you reach the end, someone in your party will be hostaged by Lover and she attack you. Boss: Lover, HP: 60000 2 Breakwings Use light-based spell, and you will be save. Have all your fighters attack Lover and she will die soon. She can cast some spell so try to use head-to-head attack style. After she dies, she will release the hostage. After an event, you finally get the last jewel, the Jewel of Love. Chapter 16, Unpredictable Power --------------------------------- After you have cleared all 4 fields, go back to Central City and talk to Narl. Narl will suggest to invade Fienal (the ten sages HQ). After some conversation, your party decided to take a rest before the attack. The next day, you will be transported to L'Aqua. You will use a Herash to go to Fienal. Fienal ------ In Fienal dock, go north and you will be in the world map, head to Fienal. Once you enter Fienal, the sages have been waiting you. After some conversation and FMV where Calnus finally destroyed (the most awesome FMV in this game!), the sages summons some robot to attack you. Boss: Takicodus, HP: 25000 Miel64, HP: 18000 Just attack the big gun and ignore the small robot (sorry, I forgot this bosses name). Use all your best spells and killer moves. Claude's Twin Slash will be a great moves to use. After you defeat the boss, the sages summons one more robot and attack you. After you destroy the second wave, Claude decided to attack the sage. Boss: Marsilio, HP: ???? This is another unwinnable battle, so simply lose to him. After you beaten, Marianna will sacrifice herself to save you. The next day, after some conversation, Narl tell you to go to Armlock, do so. In Armlock, you will be waited by someone, and he tell that Narl has waited you in the sealed door. Go north and talk to Narl, he will transport you to the secret research lab. Chapter 17, Antiproton Weapons -------------------------------- After some conversation, Narl leave you. Now go after him, save, and go north to enter the research lab. Abandoned Research Lab ---------------------- Items in the Lab: Mind Ring. There is no random encounter here, so search the Mind Ring around here first (go right first). When you enter the main hall of the lab, you meet Narl. After the flashback video, after Rena to the first area of the lab (in the grassland). Go to south end and see a conversation, now go back to the main hall. After some conversation, go back to Armlock. Now go to Mirage's house (center west of the town). Mirage will try to decipher the data. After a conversation, Mirage tell you to get a rare metals in Minea's Cave (a cave near Armlock). Minea's Cave ------------ Items in Minay's Cave: Fruit Syrup, ?MINERAL (Damascus), Fresh Syrup, Meteorite, Lightning Gun, Mithril Mesh, Liquor Bottle, Smith Hammer, Aceras. Dont try to explore now, because when you defeat the boss of this dungeon, there is no random battles in here (but if you found a chest near you, take it). The enemies here are the Evil Waters, which is pretty easy. When you reach a save point, save and heal and go north to face the big Barkus. Boss: Barker, HP: 150000 Be sure to bring Rena in here (with Cure All) because his only attacks, "Lose Patience" is very powerful, it will do damage around 3000-4000 to your party. Have Claude constantly attack him with Twin Slash, and the other fighter keep using multi-hit killer moves. Use Celine's/Leon's best spell if you bring them. Try to heal all your characters as fast as possible. After you defeat the boss, you get the rare metal. Now there is no random battle here, so search some chests you miss earlier. Now head back to Armlock. In Armlock, go to Mirage house and give her the rare metal, he will work now. Mirage will give you N.F.I.D which make you a free pass to enter Fun City. Now head to Fun City. Chapter 18, Unpredictable Attacks ----------------------------------- After some conversation, they tell you that they have input the program ten sages into their virtual battle simulation. Three days later, Mirage will come and give you the new weapons. She will give Claude the Sacred Tear, Rena got the Fallen Hope, and she also gives the others Void Matter that surrounds the others weapon with antiproton. Now you can talk to the man and choose a)Train (you fight ordinary monsters), b)Rest ,c)Go see Narl. Choose c) when you ready to fight a boss. After some conversation, one of the sages attack you. Boss: Marsilio, HP: 150000 This time he is beatable (the same boss you fight in Fienal part one). He is a close-combat sage, so fight him with head-to-head strategy and trap him so he cant move. Try to cast your strongest spell and be sure to have Rena in this battle. He is fast, so try to equip as many your characters with Bunny Shoes as possible. After you defeat him, try to leave the battle arena, and you face again one of the sages. Boss: Shigeo, HP: 160000 This boss is a long-range sage, so trap him with your fighters, use all your best killer moves and spells. If you have high level and use Eternal Sphere, this is an easy boss battle. After you beat the sage, go to Armlock. When you enter, Mirage is attacked by one of the sages and the sage attack you. Boss: Berle, HP: 170000 This is the same boss when you fight him in the Eluria Tower. As always, bring Rena. Magician is not too useful, so try to use fighters and trap him. He can use a barrier that can't be destroyed by anything, so set your strategy to "stay away from enemy" until he wear off the barrier. Use multi-hit killer moves to easily beat him. After you beat him, Mirage is only injured. When you try to leave Armlock, a messenger from Narl come in and tell you to come to L'Aqua as soon as possible. So check if you ready for the final dungeon. Now head to L'Aqua. In L'Aqua, enter the infirmary and talk to Narl, After some conversation, Narl suggest you to take a break before invade Fienal. In the shoreside, you will see something that may can be used for you to know who with who paired for the ending. The next day, Narl gives you the Crest of Enhancement. Now the Herash will be ready and you reach Fienal. In the dock, simply talk to the man to go back to L'Aqua. Now head to Fienal for the final dungeon. Chapter 19, Final Invasion ---------------------------- Check your items and equipment, and now enter Fienal (you should build up to around level 70). As soon as you enter Fienal, 3 sages attack you. Boss: Ruprecht, HP: 105800 Jibril, HP: 45500 Nicolus, HP: 85200 This battle is tough, while they have fewer HP than other sages you fight before, they are powerful. First, quickly hit Nicolus before he can swallow the other characters. Concentrate your attack on one sage, and use mass-attack spell so they will stun the others in a while. Once you kill Nicolus, kill Ruprecht which can cast Lost Mental and do some physical attacks. And then finally kill Jibril. Bring Rena here is absolutely must. Once you defeat them, you can enter Fienal. Items in Fienal: Spark Whip, Advanced Heraldry, Mithril Shield, Left Cross, Nuclear Bomb, Resurrection Mist, Pet Food, ?ITEM, Beta Box, Lotus Eater, Atomic Punch, Mithril, Titan's Fist, Sylvan Boots, Rune Shoes, Fresh Syrup, Liquor Bottle, Spark, Clap Rod, Duel Helm, Sage's Stone. The only thing with the enemies are the huge green-white bird, the green salamanders, and a kind of Vissayer's (that yellow/blue blob), but if you have high level and have the best equipment you will be okay. This dungeon is very long, you can use a lot of way to reach the top, so use whatever you want. After you reach the fifth floor, and find a save point, save and heal, head north and face the 2 sages. Boss: Decus, HP: 160000 Vesper, HP: 180000 This battle is pretty hard, because they can cast powerful spells and have pretty high HP. You may want to use Leon instead of Celine since Vesper is weak against water. Try to concentrate on one sage, but use mass-attack spells to prevent the others to attack your party. Vesper is fire-based, so if you use fire-based attack, it will only heal him, use Claude's Mirror Slice and the others keep using multi-hit killer moves to shut their mouth. Try to equip as many Bunny Shoes in your party as possible. After you defeat them, go up to the sixth floor. 6th floor main puzzle: This is quite amusing, so I will only tell you the objective of this puzzle. There is no random battles in here, so relax. SE: Special event. 1S: 1st switch needed to open the door to the exit switch. 2S: 2nd switch needed. 3S: 3rd switch needed. ES: Where exit switch located. SE: First, go right, then north, press the middle switch in this room and go east, now press the right switch and go north, north, and take the chest. 1S: Now head back to the first area and choose the left switch. Now check the lone switch (orange switch once it activated). 2S: Go east, east, north, check the middle switch and go west, west, check the lone switch (green switch). 3S: Now go east, east, north, west, check the right switch and go west, north, and check another lone switch (purple switch). ES: Go back to south, east, check the left switch, east, south, check the middle switch, east, south and check the lone switch (the exit switch). On the 7th floor, find a save point and save and heal in there. Be ready to face the 9th sage. Equip your battle-party with wind elemental defense acc/equipment before you face him and try to equip the Bunny Shoes to all of your fighters. Boss: Cyril, HP: 300000 This battle will take a while because he has a lot of HP. He can cast Wind of Death that can cause around 4000 damage to your party, so use anti once the battle begins and use angel feather to your fighters. Try to trap him and don't let him moves a cm, combine 2 or 3 multi-hit killer moves and fire-based spells. If he start casting the Wind of Death, you cant hurt him, so be sure to use wind-defense and cast Anti to reduces the damage. Use Rena's Fairy Light to heal all your characters quickly. After you defeat him, go north and go all the way to the 9th floor, down again to the 8th floor and finally go up again to the 9th floor. In this floor, find a save point, heal, go up 3 floors and now be ready for the final battle. Boss: Indalecio, HP: 500000 (Limiter: On) Good luck, he is pretty hard. Use Anti and Angel Feather on the fighters. In the beginning, he will cast some wave that protect him from enemy approaching, so use a spell to nullify it and attack him with multi-hit killer moves. Use your best spells, and don't conserve any items here because this is the final battles. After you drain his HP far enough, he will cast the Time of Truth, where he will combined with Filia. Once he combined, he will be very fast and can fly around the battlefields. Equipping your fighters with Bunny Shoes is very important in this battle. He can cast high-grade mass attack spell like Southern Cross or Explode. Try to attack him constantly before he cast powerful spells, his time to cast spells is very short, so trap him. Make sure Claude equipped with Eternal Sphere, Pallas Athena, and an Atlas Ring (2 Atlas Ring will be great) and keep using Mirror Slice on the battlefield. The only point to win this battle is on the first round of the battle (when he cast the divine wave), if you have reach him and trap him with multi-hit killer moves, he will be history. Boss: Indalecio, HP: 1500000 (Limiter: Off) Good luck, use above strategy and be sure you have a high level (around 100) or you will be in trouble. After you kill Indalecio (no matter you fight him with limiter on or off). The Crest of Enhancement, will hold the Crest of Annihilation and transform its damage into Energy Nede's. After the FMV and anime sequences, enjoy 1 of the 86 endings!!! Congratulations, You have ended this game!! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> VIII. THE BONUS DUNGEON: CAVE OF TRIALS >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> To reach the bonus dungeon, save in front of Indalecio and go all the way back to Fun City, now head to the battle stadium and talk to an oldman here, say yes when you ready. Now you in Arlia, note that behind you is a strange penguin, talk to him and told him "You silly Vern Vern" and he will kick you back to Fun City. Now head out of Arlia and ride your Synard to a solitary desert island with a red dot on it. Now enter the Cave of Trials. The system is pretty easy, you enter a floor of dungeon, after you reach the end, you will fight a boss and if you beat it, he will let you down to the next floor. This cave contains 13 floors with one boss each, so be ready and be sure to bring a lot of Resurrection Bottle. I suggest you equip Claude with Eternal Sphere, Reflective Armor, Pallas Athena, Bunny Shoes, and 2 Atlas Ring, this will keep you alive a long time. Try to equip all your in battle-characters with Bunny Shoes. --Floor 1: Heraldic Ruins-- ------------------------- Items in floor 1: Fruit Nectar, Nuclear Bomb, Tri-Emplem, Juicy Beed, Blueberry, Link Stock, Wonder Drug. Pretty easy, you commonly fight a group of knight with a big shield, but sometimes you fight the warlocks, hit them first as they are annoying. This first floor has no real puzzle, it is just an original dungeon. Go all the way and take treasures (be sure to get the link stock). When you reach a switch, pull it and enter the now-unclosed door, be ready to face the first floor boss. BOSS: Dark Feather, HP: 160000 2 Weird Knights, HP: 23000 each, Strong: Fire,Dark. Try to focus on Dark Feathered, as she can petrify you (which is very annoying), so try to trap him and don't let her move. Use multi-hit killer moves to easily beat them. When you beat them, she will congratulate you and give you the first floor treasures, The Bunny Shoes. --Floor 2: Love Alley-- --------------------- Items in floor 2: Purify Leaf, Resurrection Mist, Reflective Armor, Link Combo. This floor has a pretty easy enemy, the enemy is not too hard except the giants as they can hit you hard. The puzzle is pretty confusing, but follow my guide. When you enter, read the stone and you have to turn all the stone statues of a person to certain direction (N,S,W,E) where someone they love is there (except Cistina). Feria: East (Luke) Milene: South (Luke) Luke: North (Milene) Llyod: East (Cistina) Yuffie: South (Llyod) Sharon: West (Yuffie) Cistina: South (Nobody) Also, it is pretty hard to not miss the Link Combo, to get it, just press the confirm button between Luke and Milene statue. When you have the right combination, you hear a blimp, now head to the first area of 2nd floor and head north to a now un-closed door, now face the boss. BOSS: Blood Gerell, HP: 60000 5 Huntingels, HP: 20000 Easy, just be sure to not let the enemies split and copies themselves, otherwise, you can face a horde of enemies, so split your fighters and use mass-attack spells. After you defeat them, he will let you pass to the 3rd floor and give you the Seraphic Garb. --Floor 3: Single Path Cave-- --------------------------- Items in 3rd floor: 2 Fruit Nectar, Juicy Beef, Dream Crown, Sylvan Mail, Tokkoyaku, Slayer Ring. The enemies to look out here is the Weird Goat and the Warlock, also, Blood Gerell appears here as normal enemy. The puzzle is pretty confusing, when you enter a room, certain red blocks is filled into all the yellow boxes in the first screen of this floor, so you must travel in certain orders to change the boxes to red. This is kinda hard to explained, but this is a map, the number (1-16) is the number of screen you must travel. _________________ |11 |10 | 7 | 6 | |___|___|___|___| |12 | 9 | 8 | 5 | |___|___|___|___| |13 |16 | 1 | 4 | |___|___|___|___| |14 |15 | 2 | 3 | |___|___|___|___| There, you should travel 1-16. 16: Where the stair up to floor 2 is and also where the stair down to floor 4 is, and this room is also the room with the yellow boxes. So you should go east from the 1st room (16), and south, east, north, north, etc. When you hear a blimp, the door opens, so enter and fight a boss. BOSS: 3 Dream Shades, HP: 35000 each This boss is pretty easy, just trap them with your fighters and they will be die soon. Be warned when they have a clock on their head, hit it immediately, as it can stop time and hurt you badly. Claude's Mirror Slice will be very usefull in here. After you defeat them, you get the Magical Drops. Now the stair to the 4th floor is opened, enter it (at this time, you may want to go back to the world map and save). --Floor 4: Dancing God Altar-- ---------------------------- Items in 4th floor: Fruit Nectar, Peep Non, Black Earring, Resurrection Mist, Purify Leaf, Seraphic Garb, Extinction. The enemy here is the Punkponks, they are annoying because when they hit you, you will be knocked very far, so try to use your timing very well. There is no puzzles, except that you can walk trough certain walls in certain places. One of the 2 chests in the first room is filled with "Extinction", Leon's best spell, so be sure to get it. Go to northeast end of the level, and pull the lever. Now go back to the first room and be sure to have a character with "Sense of Rhythm" talent, "Pitch" talent, and perfect Musical talent level (9 or 10). Now enter the now-opened door in the center of the room. You will find a kind of god that ask you to play music for him, choose the character who have above requirements and if you successful in pleasing him, he will give you the "Illusive Shamisen". Now head to the northwest end of the level and you will find a robot, which is a boss. BOSS: Miil 32, HP: 190000, Strong: All. This is pretty hard if you don't have right party, so be sure to bring head-to-head fighter like Claude, Ashton, or Dias. Celine's Explode works well to stun him for a while, bring Rena just in case. His weakness is when he try to hit your character, he must be in certain distance. After you defeat him, you can go down to the fifth floor. --Floor 5: Lady's Revenge-- ------------------------- Items in 5th floor: Fresh Syrup, Slayer Ring, Juicy Beef, Fruit Nectar, Fairy Ring, Wonder Drug, Seraphic Garb. The enemy here is pretty tough, the Dragon Axe is have a great attack power and when they trap you, you highly seems to die. When you pass a door in the first room, a strange woman appears and ask you some question, answer anything and he will summon a beast to attack you. BOSS: Weird Beast, HP:???? This is a VERY LONG battle IF you want to defeat it, as it immune to magic and if you hit it with physical attack, it only do 1 damage. However, you CAN run, so run when you want. Otherwise, it is very weak. After you run, Puffy will run. Now go deep in the dungeon and you will meet Puffy again, and she is attacked by monsters, you now have a choice to help her, choose to help her and you will be attacked by a boss. BOSS: 3 Dream Shades, HP:35000 each Same as the boss fight in floor 3. After you defeat them, Puffy will run and drop something, check it and you get the "Weird Slayer" (can be used to kill any monster with "weird" word in front of the name). Now go deeper in the dungeon and you will meet Puffy again. She tell you that the key to the next level is in the beast but the beast have ran away. So search the beast in every single room and you eventually will find it, equip someone in the battle-party with a Weird Slayer (usually Rena) and fight it. BOSS: Weird Beast, HP:???? Very easy, just hit it once with a character equipped with a Weird Slayer and it will die soon. Also, if you want, you can increase your profiency level in here. After you defeat it, it will drop the Red Lotus Gem, which is the key to the next level. So head to where Puffy is and check the locked door, now it is opened and go down to the next level. --Floor 6: Burglar's Nest-- ------------------------- Items in 6th floor: Cure Poison, Dream Crown. The enemy here are the funny thieves, the original one is very easy, but the metalfunny (the grey one) is hard to kill because they can take only 1 damage every 1 attack, and they have around 200 HP, so be patient, otherwise, the enemy here are the enemy you fight earlier. If you have "Funny Slayer" equip it (from Radol), it can kill enemy with "Funny" word in front of the name. This is a short dungeon, so first go northwest. This room is filled with a lot of metalfunny statue, but go north and take the 2 chests first. Now head back to the statues room and check the most bottom right statue, you will hear a door opened in distance. Although it is rare, sometimes, a santa appear here, he sell all of the rare mineral, Santa boots, Tri-Emblem, and Go-Home Frog. They are VERY expensive (a santa boots originally cost you 10.000.000 Fol!), but if you have money, just but the Tri-Emblem (great accessories) and Go-Home Frog (this when used can teleport you out of a dungeon). But if you want, you can buy Santa Boots (if you equip it and sleep at an inn, there is a chance that Santa will leave you a gift that you will acquire in the morning -> this info was uncomfirmed), although it is very expensive. Now head to southwest, in the next room, go west and north, now be ready to face a boss. BOSS: Dream Shade, HP: 35000 3 Funny Thieves, HP: 3 Funny Thieves Lv.99, HP: 40000 The boss is very easy if you have a Funny Slayer, but if you don't, this can be considered moderate boss. First, split up your fighter, make Claude attack the Funny Thieves lv.99, and make the other attack the Dream Shade. Don't ever attack the original Funny Thieves because your magician can kill them in one hit. Use you best spell constantly and dont let the Funny Thieves lv.99 near your spellcaster, he is very fast, so be sure to equip your fighters with a Bunny Shoes. Multi-Hit killer moves is useful here, especially Claude's Dragon Howl. When you defeat the boss, you get a Funny Slayer. Note that the path splitted into two direction, if you want to go back to floor 1 of this trials, choose left path and check the blue floor tile, if you want to go to 7th floor, choose the right path (I suggest you escape first, since the next floor is hard). --Floor 7: Goddess Altar-- ------------------------ Items in 7th floor: Tri-Emplem, Fresh Syrup, Resurrection Mist, Ganze Sea Urchin, Cracked Gem, Purify Leaf, Peep Non, Weird Slayer, Bunny Shoes, Ishidaya Tea, Yukiyoshi Tea. The enemy here is hard! the combination between the archers, Funny Thief lv.99 (!), and the knight type enemies is very deadly. So be sure to have a high level (around 110). This dungeon is pretty long, but it is straight forward. When you reach the center room, you will see an altar with a stone tablet near it. Go east first, take any chests you find in the intersection, and you eventually will get the Cracked Gem (walk trough the wall). Now use "Metalwork" Item creation on the Cracked Gem, and you eventually get another Red Lotus Gem. Now go back to the altar room and check the altar (you may want to go to west and get some rare treasures in there). When you ready, check the altar and put the Red Lotus Gem on the altar, the door in north will be opened now. Now enter the door and be ready for a bosstime. Boss: Mithril Eater, HP: 600000 This gonna be a long fight, he is pretty easy, he just like the big barkus you fight in Minay's Cave, but he is more powerful. Be sure to bring Rena here because his "Lost Patience" attack will damage you a lot (around 7000). Trap him with your fighter and use multi-hit killer moves to kill him. After you beat it, you get the Million Staff, equip it on Celine (if you have her) since it is her best weapon (with awesome magic attack power). Now choose the left path first to get the 3 chests. Now head back and choose the right path to the next floor. --Floor 8: Food God-- ------------------- Items in 8th floor: Lavender, Funny Slayer, Seraphic Garb, Amoeba Soup, Ooze Cocktail, Slime Jelly, Million Staff, Fresh Syrup, Ganze Sea Urchin, Wonder Drug, Peep Non. The enemies to be look out is the Weird Devil, as they do lots of damage and can drain your MP, bring someone equipped with Weird Slayer to kill them quickly, otherwise, the enemies are just powerful. When you reach the inner north end area, you meet a kind of food god, he ask you to give him food, just give him a low-level food, keep feeding him and feed him a rotten food (like rotten sashimi, raw milk, bad tasting stew, etc) and he will reveal his true form, he is actually Puffy! Now the door is open. Before the stair, there is a boss waiting you. BOSS: Erysin Beast, HP: 450000 This boss is not too hard, but, he can swallow your character right there and have high chance to not ever let the character free anymore. However, he is slow, so use multi-hit killer moves and spells to kill him. After you defeat it, you get the Gelatin Steak. --Floor 9: Sealed Coffin-- ------------------------ Items in 9th floor: Artemis Leaf, Valiant Boots, Resurrection Mist, Wonder Drug. The most annoying monster here is the Weird Mollusk, as it like the Erishin Beast who can swallow your character all time, kill it quickly with a Weird Slayer. There is no puzzle here, so just straightforward to the next floor. But when you have end the 12th floor and got a treasure from the boss there, go back here and check the coffin, a boss appears. BOSS: Wise Sorcerer, HP:700000, Strong: Earth,Fire,Star,Physical. Dream Shade, HP:35000 Well, it is hard, he can cast powerful spells and can use strong physical attack. Try to spread out your fighter and kill the Dream Shade first and finally trap the sorcerer, slow but sure he will die. After you beat him, you get the Laventine Sword, this sword has a whooping 3000 attack power, and the only sword which can match the Eternal Sphere. --Floor 10: Decision Point-- -------------------------- Items in 10th floor: Fresh Syrup, Valiant Boots, 2 Valkyrie Boots, Rainbow Diamond, Sage's Stone, Funny Slayer, Bunny Shoes, Purify Leaf, Tri-Ace, Million Staff, Meteor Swarm. The enemy to lookout is the mind flayer and life flayer, the mind flayer can drain a lot of your MP, and the life flayer can do a horrible amount of damage, otherwise, the enemies are just tough. The puzzle here is somewhat hard to explained, but all of the room are divided by 4 by 4 line, and all of them have certain colours, however, you can only light up five squares. When you in the green one, you can travel safely, the yellow one will drain your hp/mp, and the red one will drain your hp/mp fast. Now here is a map. _____________ |R |G |G |G2| R: Red |__|__|__|__| Y: Yellow |Y |G |R |R | G: Green |__|__|__|__| G1: Entrance to this floor |G |G |Y |Y | G2: Exit/Boss |__|__|__|__| |G1|Y |R |R | |__|__|__|__| R: Red Y: Yellow G: Green G1: Entrance to this floor G2: Exit/Boss Note that almost all of the rare items are in the red/yellow ones, so becarefull. Also, be sure to get the Meteor Swarm, it is Celine's best spells and the Tri-Ace, another Ashton's killer moves. When you reach G2, try to climb the stair, a boss appear and attack you. BOSS: Geo Guardian, HP:400000 He is just the same boss when you fight him in 2 of the fields, but he is much more powerfull. Besure you have high defense and Lightning elemental defense equipment, because he can do thousands of damage to you. Try to trap him between your fighters and don't let him attack, bring Rena for back-up healing. After you beat him, you get the Valiant Guard. Now head to the eleventh floor. --Floor 11: Dragon's Den-- ------------------------ Items in 11th floor: none. You now starting to fight boss-type normal enemies in here, so be sure to dont give them a chance. the Owlbear has a lot of HP and high defense (although you get a lot of exp), also, the Weird Mages can cast the powerfull Explode spell, so kill them quickly with the Weird Slayer. This is a short dungeon, after several screens, heal and be ready for a boss! BOSS: Dragon Tyrant, HP: 550000 This boss is hard because it seems can block any attack, except magic, so use your best attack spells. Use one fighter as a decoy and use your best attack spells. This gonna be a pretty long fight, be ready to revive your characters a lot. Also, bring Rena here is absolutely neccessary. Once you beat it, he'll give you the Float skills. When you try to enter the next floor, you couldn't. So teleport back out of the dungeon. The next time, you have a choice to enter the dungeon with only 2 characters, say yes. Now enter the 12th floor with 2 characters (note that after you open the door in floor 12, you can back to the 9th floor, check the coffin and fight the boss, after you defeat it, you can enter the 12th floor with entire party. --Floor 12: Hall of Warriors-- ---------------------------- Items in 12th floor: 2 Battle Suit, Bunny Shoes, Valkyrie Guard. The enemy here is just same as the 11th floor, but with less quantities, it maybe because you fight with only 2 characters. The puzzle here is to open the door to the 13th floor (last floor), you need 2 items, the first one is the Laventine Sword in the 9th floor after you defeat the Wise Sorcerer (you can only fight him after you defeat the boss of this floor), the second one is an item you get after you defeat the boss of this floor. So you need to go back to the 9th floor after you defeat the boss of this dungeon to go to the 13th floor. Also, the boss in this floor will never disappear unless you defeat the final boss in the 13th floor. BOSS: Phoenix, HP: 350000. Strong: Fire,Wind. This boss is relatively easy, make sure Claude equipped with Atlas Ring and he will die soon. Use your 2nd character to heal your main character. Try to catch and hit him before he can use his Master Attacks. After you defeat him, you get the Holy Sword and the Seiken Farewell. Now go back to the 9th floor and fight the boss to get Laventine Sword. Now head to the 13th floor. --Floor 13: Holy Nest of Angels-- ------------------------------- Items in 13th floor: Valiant Mail, Valiant Guard, Angel Armband. Good luck, the enemy here is a powerful boss-type enemy, so beware. The puzzle is easy; just flip 2 levers in the side of this floor to open the door which lead to the final boss. When you reach the inner area, an angel attacks you. BOSS: Gabrie Celesta, HP: 1000000, Strong: Star,Light. She is also probably the most powerful boss in SO2 game as well. All of her attacks can do well over 5000 points of damage/hit. While she only has three spells as far as I've seen, Noa, Star Flare, and Foehn, all will do 9999 damage to all characters without resistance, usually around 8000-9000 to those with. Most dangerous is her "wheel of death" attack, where she spins around the room at speeds significantly faster than Bunny-Shoes running, damaging anything. She is also immune to damage, both magical and physical, in this state. The key to defeating Gabrie Celesta is attack magic. Even Noel's attack magic will be more favorable than fighter characters. Normal attacks by fighter characters will usually do 0 damage even if they connect, and even the most powerful waza will tend to do less than 1000 points of damage without a critical hit. Magic spells are the only way you can consistently do a decent amount of damage to her. Assistance spells are a must, especially Anti in case she gets to cast a spell. Basically it is smartest to use one or two fighter characters as decoys to keep her busy while your magic users are casting spells. I usually have Claude as a decoy with the Eternal Sphere normally attacking; while it won't do any damage, the multi-hits the stars provide will stun Gabrie Celesta long enough to keep her from changing targets to a spell caster. You'll have to do plenty of reviving and use lots of MP recharging items to finish this fight. Be ready for a long, drawn-out battle though; it has taken me as many as 45 minutes to beat her. After you beat her, she give you the Silver Trumpet. With this instrument, you can summon the tougher version of the angel!! Congratulation, you have beaten the bonus dungeon of Star Ocean: The Second Story!!! When you play the "Evil Melody" song by Silver Trumpet (remember to compose it first), you fight the another version of angels, The Iselia Queen. OPTIONAL BOSS: Iselia Queen, HP: around 2500000, Strong: Dark,Negative. Be sure to equip dark-elemental defense equipment so you can resist her dark spells. She is identical to Gabrie Celesta, but she is a dark- elemental angel, so use Celine's Meteor Swarm instead Leon (since Leon most spells is dark or negative elemental). Your may want your party to be 2 fighter, with 1 spell caster (probably Celine) and Rena as healer (Noel's healing is too weak even if he equips a Million Staff). In the first round, try to control Rena and cast Anti. Give the "hold her spell" tactics to the 2 fighters (maybe Claude, Ashton or Opera). If you use Ashton, make him cast the Tri-ace all the time, and Claude hit her normally with Eternal Spheres (or equip the Levantine Sword with an angel armband). Use spellcaster to your advantages, and Rena as a healer. When she attack with something like a cross fence, control the character attacked manually and avoid the fence attack (as this attack will be the most annoying attack). Also, she can petrify your character, so try to avoid head-to-head attack (Claude's Dragon Howl and Opera's Alpha on One is great). This is going to be a very long battle, so be patient. When you finally defeat her, you get the second Levantine Sword. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> IX.

Now I will write all of the secret informations section only, since you can read the others in North City library. Note that every sub contain 3 files. __________________ /Secret Information\__________________________________________________ ---------------------------------------------------------------------- -Project Planning Documents- ---------------------------- File 1: Rebellions against the planet Nede have broken out in 24 different frontier planets. It appears that several of the technologies of the planet Nede have been leaked to the forces of undeveloped planets, so we suspects that Nedian conspirators are cooperating with the rebel forces. We must quickly develop new weapons in order to suppress the rebel forces. File 2: Based on the research of Dr.Lantis, it was discovered that by applying technologies derived from Heraldry science to make modifications to the DNA of people, it is possible to create bioweapons that have Heraldry powers much more powerful than normal. File 3: A military supreme council decided that the aforementioned bioweapons should be urgently put into practical use and used for the defense and control the frontier planets. The code name for the project was decided to be 'Ten Wise Men Defense Plan, Phase I'. Under the direction of Dr.Lantis, the construction of the ten bioweapons began. Depending on the results of the plan, they planned to continue to Phase II, Phase III and into the construction phase. -Research Reports- ------------------ File 1: The close-in combat weapon [Marsilio]. The remote projectile -attack weapon [Shigeo]. The base-defense special weapon [Berle]. These three weapons were completed. In addition, development was started on the strategic weapon [Decus] to be used to control these three weapons. File 2: The two information gathering agents [Ruprecht] and [Nicolus] were completed. Together with the information analysis agent [Jibril] completed earlier, these agents were assembled under the command of the civilian control agent [Vesper]. In addition, the agent named [Cyril] used to monitor the Ten Wise Men was also completed at the same time. File 3: Dr.Lantis' last surviving family member, his daughter Filia, was the victim of a terrorist attack by rebel forces opposed to the Ten Wise Men Defense Plan. However, the military decided upon a policy of concealing the truth from Dr.Lantis. -Letter of Apology- ------------------- File 1: Dr.Lantis suddenly activated all of the defensive mechanisms within the laboratory, and completely sealed of the interior of the laboratory. It appears that he somehow became aware of the terrorist attack during experiments on the information gathering agents [Ruprecht] and [Nicolus]. He holed himself up inside the laboratory and appeared to have made some kind of modifications to the Ten Wise Men agents. It appears that as soon as the military gives permission, security forces will need to enter the laboratory and capture the person Dr. Lantis. File 2: The Ten Wise Men who came out of the interior of the laboratory began indiscriminate attacks on facilities in their vicinity. It appears that, for some reason Dr. Lantis had changed their ultimate objective from the 'control of frontier planets' to the 'annihilation of the entire universe'. An entire squadron of mechanized troops that entered the laboratory was completely annihilated. In order to destroy the Ten Wise Men who continued to run out of control repeatedly, a request to call out the Planet Nede Occupation Forces will be made. File 3: As the result of a pitched battle, the security forces succeeded in driveing the Ten Wise Men into the interior of the laboratory. When the interior of the laboratory was entered, the interior was found to be an empty shell. It appears that somehow Dr. Lantis had confined the Ten Wise Men in Eternity Space and left them in outer space. Although the Ten Wise Men could not be completely destroyed, there is no method of releasing the Eternity Space except for entering a release password from outside, so they will not cause much trouble. The Ten Wise Men will thus probably be left wandering through outer space of Eternity. -Final Report- -------------- File 1: A person who had committed suicide inside the laboratory was confirmed to be Dr. Lantis himself without a doubt. Thus, this matter came to a resolution. However, one troubling thing was that the remains of the thought routines of Dr. Lantis and his daughter Filia had been left in the computers inside the laboratory. It is feared that perhaps Dr. Lantis had converted his own consciousness into a computer program which was embedded into the as-yet incomplete Indalecio. File 2: Because of this series of incidents due to the Ten Wise Men Plan, 80% if the entire forces of Planet Nede had suffered crushing blows. The frontier planets seized this opportunity to start a coordinated revolt. It became more and more difficult to suppress these rebel forces. Seeing the gravity of the situation, the supreme council of the planet Nede made the decision to migrate the entire population to an artificial satellite. File 3: This artificial satellite named Energy Nede, which would be completely surrounded with a Class 9 super energy field. This would halt the advance the rebel forces upon the original planet Nede. However, this would also cut off all interaction between us Nedians and the outside world. Together with our migration to Energy Nede, it was decided to impose an information blackout on this entire series of incidents. Thus, all of the facts related to the Ten Wise Men Defense Plan will be purged from history. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> X.
