    This FAQ can currently be found only in Gamefaqs.com, GameNotOver.com and 
    nowhere else. If you borrowed it and I gave you permission, then I should
    have posted your site in here. BUt right now, I'm only considering 
    Gamefaqs so it is not likely that I'll let you borrow it. If you insist 
    on breaking the rules then read the portion from GameFaqs to what will h
    appen to people like those.
    I have decided to write this kind of Suikoden FAQ because there are none of
    this kind of walkthough for the game. I've read and used some of the 
    FAQs and some of them simply give out minor or even  major spoilers away.
    Suikoden does have a very interesting story so if you want to play the game,
    use a guide to help you navigate but still enjoy the story, then this FAQ is
    for you. Basically, what you'll find here will just be general places where
    to go, what to do and any precautions you have to take. I'll also be adding
    some personal comments in the FAQ. Nothing from the story line will be 
    exposed. You can count on that! 
    And also, this is my very first time writing a FAQ so if there are
    corrections, please do email them to me. For questions about the game 
    such as character locations and the like, please use the other FAQs or the 
    message board (which is really helpful)if you have any questions because 
    I will not be replying anything of the sort.
    I'll also be accepting any contributions, though I think
    this guide can be read as is. BUt if you come up with something that you
    want to share, please don't hesitate to tell. Thanks!
    ps. Just for the record, I finished the game in 54 hours using 3 save slots.

    As you can see, the chapters are arranged in an orderly fashion. I know that
    in some other FAQs, they suggest that you follow a certain sequence in order
    to see some additional cutscenes. You can do any sequence you want, just
    refer to this if you ever get lost in a situation. 
    Remember: This is only a reference guide for gamers who want to enjoy
    Suikoden 3 for its plot. If you're on your second time through, there are 
    a lot of other great detailed FAQS to help you. Also, I will not be saying
    "cutscene!" all the time. It can get pretty annoying so in some cases 
    in the guide, the interval between 2 senteces might be minutes of cutscenes
    so don't get lost if you think that the 2 sentencces are unrelated.
    Lastly, you are free to go anywhere. The sequence in this guide is just 
    where to trigger the story to move on with the plot. Unless in some cases
    where there is an optional place. So don't be constrained with what I am
    saying. Enjoy the game freely as it's supposed to be played. 
    Final note in recruiting characters:
    I'll provide with a list of the 108 stars in the next update.  
    So, on with the guide...
    This is the place where you choose any point of view from our 3 main 
    characters. You can choose anyone you want. There is a suggested sequence 
    but that is only to view some extra cutscenes.  The 3 smaller circles are 
    other points of view that will unlock later or if you fulfill some 
    requirements. Nonetheless, you're free to choose whose story you wish 
    to pursue first.
    =================== :: CHAPTER 1 :: ====================
    [Chris CHAPTER 1]
    NOTE: If you see "prepare", it means that there's a possibility of some 
    battle going to happen. And in some instances, you might want to save.
    ____Vinay Del Zexay
    Go to the council hall. Afterwards, explore if you want then exit.
    Go to Brass Castle.
    ____Zexen Forest
    Just pass by. There are 2 alternate routes but it's headed the same way.
    ____Brass Castle
    You are entering the western part of town. Just proceed to the right.
    Head to the eastern exit. After some dialogues, go to your room (enter
    the door where the bujutsu teacher inside the castle is) then head upstairs. 
    Rest for the day. A great day awaits.
    ____Karaya Village
    Just enter the village... then exit after the scenes
    ____Brass Castle
    Go the room beside yours, where Salome is. Exit though the western side.
    Back to VdZ.
    ____Zexen Forest
    Just pass by.... ^_^
    ____Vinay Del Zexay (VDZ)
    Go to the council hall at the center of town. Go to your house after the 
    scenes. It is on the western part of town. End of chapter!
    [Geddoe CHAPTER 1]
    ___Vinay del Zexay
    Just explore town a little then exit.
    ___Zexen Forest
    Walk straight through and get the items from the dead soldiers (go right
    after the second screen).
    ___Yaza Plain
    Go straigh north. Don't mind the western exit first.
    ___Great Hollow
    After some scenes, go upstairs and to the center room. Then go to the 
    southeastern door. Follow the lizards and to the end of the path.
    After the events, head back to the chief's room. Exit.
    ___Plain Amur
    Just pass by the area.
    ___Karaya village
    Enter and receive a warm welcome... explore the town after. Also level up
    a lot if you want to battle an "optional enemy". Head to the northern hut 
    (Chief Lucia's house) after preparing. Save. When you control
    the 2 characters, just head for the entrance.
    ___Plain Amur
    Follow Aila and talk to her. She's just in the first screen looking at 
    ___Karaya Village
    When faced with the decision, you can battle this "optional enemy" by
    choosing the statement with an "Inkling". Choose the other option to 
    skip it. Unless you're pretty confident and have leveled up then I suggest
    you leave. 
    Paths open up. You can now go to Lake Castle to start recruiting. 
    Also try Mt. Hei-Tou for money and items. That is if you didn't take them
    from the other character's point of view.
    But for the story to progress...
    ___Mountain Path
    I suggest you level up because of a mini-boss later. Just keep on heading
    north east to proceed. when you see the big monster, you'll have to fight
    it. It can be pretty though depending on your skills. If it's not enough, 
    go back to the previous towns (Brass, VDZ) to updrage your skills.
    Choose the east path to head to Caleria.
    Save and rest. Go to the northern part of town. You'll be back at the inn.
    [Hugo CHAPTER 1]
    ___Karaya Village
    Explore town if you want. Head for the first house on the left upon entering 
    town. Rest. Now you're off to Vinay del Zexay.
    ___Plain Amur
    Just pass by.
    ___Brass Castle
    Sharpen your weapons and upgrade your skills. Go to the opposite side of
    the castle. After some scenes, just continue to the western exit.
    ___Zexen Forest
    Just pass by.
    ___Vinay del Zexay
    First, go to Chris' house (left side of town). Afterwards go to the Council
    Hall in the middle of the town. After that, you'll have to buy time. 
    Here's one suggestion: Go to the marketplace to trigger a cutscene. Now
    head to the seaside shops, particularly in front of the Rune Shop. Remember
    what they're talking about. Go to the hidden passageway. It's on the left
    part of the current map you're in (the small yellow line). Go upstairs...
    now give the pass then enter. After the scenes go to the Northern Cavern.
    Make sure you enhance your skills, sharpen your weapons and save.
    ___North Cavern
    Just head all the way up and fight the enemies. You'll eventually rest for
    the night. The next day continue your way then you'll encounter someone.
    After winning, you'll head back to VDZ.
    ___Vinay del Zexay
    Watch a cutscene then head for the Council Hall. Go to the inn to rest.
    Head back to the hall once more and... finally! When you gain control go to
    the inn. Be sure to save. Now what! Anyway, make sure you heal up so you
    won't have to repeat. When you see the 2 Zexen Night, choose to leave them
    alone.. trust me. You're off to Karaya.
    ___Zexen Forest
    Just pass by.
    ___Brass Castle
    Head inside. Uh-oh. Now when you finally have control, just walk north.
    Once you reach the exit, go to Karaya Village.
    ___Karaya Village
    Simply walk in...and watch the cutscenes.
    [Thomas CHAPTER 1]
    ___Lake Castle
    As soon as you have control, rest and talk to everyone in the castle. 
    There are 6 of them. Explore as well.Return to the main hall inside the
    ___Brass Castle
    After passing the Yaza Plain you'll reach the castle. Head in the center
    (inside the castle itself) then after some scenes, go upstairs and to 
    Salome's room (1 of the 2 rooms). 
    ___Lake Castle
    Rest and save. Go to the courtyard. You'll want to help them. Check
    out the library, elevator and the shipwreck. Now go to Juan.
    ___Mt. Hei-Tou
    Just head all the way to the east. You might want to level up and save when
    you see a save point. Try exploring the other paths if you want to but
    you can't fight the mini-bosses. When you reach the end, cutscene. Now back
    to Lake Castle!
    ___Lake Castle
    save and Rest. Check the entrance hall the next morning. Go to your room 
    and search for it. After doing so, you're off to recruiting characters!
    There are a lot characters you can recruit at this moment. Visit Iksay, 
    Brass and Vinay del Zexay. A character recruitment list will be added 
    the next update. You have to recruit some to proceed. 
    For a list and locations, look at part V of this guide.
    ___Lake Castle
    After recruiting some characters, go to your room and rest. Cutscene.
    Exit town and enter. After some scenes, rest for the night. It should
    be working now. You'll eventually be in the depths of the castle.
    When you split, just keep on walking northwest.. that means you'll be
    heading forward and touching the left wall. It's because of the "hidden"
    passageway (thanks camera) so you won't miss it. You should be fine from 
    there. Just keep walking through.
    =================== :: CHAPTER 2 :: ====================
    [Chris CHAPTER 2]
    Leave the City. There are now new places to go to. You can visit the
    Lake castle to start recruiting. But to go on with the plot...

    of the windmill afterwards. After all the scenes exit town.
    ___ OPTIONAL: Mt. Hei-Tou
    You can explore this area for some treasure chests. There is a mini-boss
    but if you're leveling up then you don't really need to worry. Or, if
    you want the other characters to get the money prize or items, then just
    skip this one.
    ___Brass Castle
    Go to your room and rest. When you wake up, talk to Salome in his room.
    After talking return to your room. After something, check the bookshelf.
    Just follow what you're supposed to do (that is keep on walking to the end).
    [Geddoe CHAPTER 2]
    GO outside the inn and head for the stairs on the left part of town. After
    a scene, go back to the inn. Prepare before you leave.
    ___Mountain Path
    Remember the place where you fought the Twin-Snake monster? Return there 
    and take the northern route this time and walk to the exit. The boss 
    currently standing in that place is optional.
    ___Le Buque
    Enter town. Just keep yourself healthy and you can surivive without winning.
    When you take control, go to the trading post. A scene should trigger. 
    Follow her. Now go to the northeast part of town and head inside Iku's 
    house. Before you leave town, make sure to be prepared.
    ___Mt. Senai
    Head all the way North until a scene occurs. After that, still head north.
    Another scene occurs with the mercenaries, you can choose the first option
    to fight the powerful Bishop and the Duke.. otherwise, choose the last to
    avoid battle. Head back to Caleria.
    ___Mountain Path
    Just work your way through and a scene should occur.
    [Hugo CHAPTER 2]
    ___Duck Village
    Go to the inn and agree to the offer. Prepare for your journey. 
    ___Ancient Highway
    After the scenes, walk straight left. Now, when you see those guys, you 
    can simply escape them (unless you're confident to fight which it's
    possible to win). If you make the right choices, you can actually escape
    After that, just continue your way through.
    ___Great Hollow
    Fight your way inside. When you reach inside, talk to Luce. There will be
    a series of scenes after this. When you're back in control, go to the Chief's
    room in the top middle part of the place. Cutscene. Now go to the southeast
    area of the 1st floor. Save your game and a girl named Anne in the inn will
    change party members for you. Leave town... leave again and head for Lake

    Head back to the courtyad (in front of mansion). Here's some help! Now return
    to the gates. After some talk, go to the infirmary. When you enter 
    the castle, take the first left then right. That's the only hallway. 
    Trigger a cutscene in the end. Now visit the library. Rest up and save.
    Whenever you're ready, head for the courtyard. 
    After the battle, exit and re-enter the town. Now go to your room and
    sleep. Go to the library. Walk to the stairs. Check the wall infront
    of the infirmary. Return and rest. The next morning, time for some action.
    Once the battle is over, save in the inn. You might want to add more 
    party members... Now head up the stairs. Battle. For some reason, you'll 
    be alright. ^_^

    and Rhett. Talk to the chief duck in front of the trading post. Leave town.

    path. The other will lead to items.

    From the village, take the left path if it braches out. Don't worry,
    you'll be informed. Traverse this path. After seeing this other character,
    whatever outcome is ok.
    ___Alma Kinan
    After entering, just visit the shops and raise your skills. If you're ready
    then go to the Great Auntie's house. Go to the shrine afterwards. After
    the scenes, head back to the house. Prepare and save. Just follow what 
    you're supposed to do. Leave town.
    If you want to explore, do so. But the main destination is the yellow
    block on the map if you keep on going to the left path whenever the path
    splits up.
    [Geddoe CHAPTER 3]
    ___Brass Castle
    Walk to the other side. After a scene occurs, continue on to Zexen Forest.
    ___Zexen Forest
    Simply pass by.
    ___Vinay Del Zexay
    Explore town if you want but your main stop is the inn and spend the night.
    After the cutscenes, go to the Northern Cavern.
    ___North Cavern
    Head to the end of the cavern and scenes schould occur. After all that,
    head to Lake Castle.
    ___Lake Castle

    head back down to the first floor. After some scenes, the next day, just 
    follow what you're supposed to do. You're off to the hideaway.
    ___Kuput Forest
    Travel all the way to this forest. Remember to always take the right path
    if you want to exit to the other side. The paths leading to the left
    are for items except for the one that loops infinitely. 
    Explore the place but your main goal is the small yellow block on the map
    if you keep on choosing the left path whenever the roads split.
    [Hugo CHAPTER 3]
    ___Great Hollow
    Head to Lake castle
    ___Lake Castle
    Step in for some cutscenes. Talk to Cecile. Follow her to the courtyard.
    Talk to Thomas. Now rest in the inn. Leave the castle and... 
    Go to the courtyard then head to the gates once more then back to Thomas.
    Another guest will come. Now rest for the night. If you're ready, talk to 
    Caesar outside the inn. 
    ___Yaza Plain
    Your next destination is the Great Hollow... so what're you waiting for?!
    ___Great Hollow
    Enter the place for some cutscene. You'll eventually need to go to Brass
    ___Brass Castle
    Walk your way in. Talk to some weird people... Now when given a decision, 
    you can fight or scram. Now head back to the Great Hollow.
    ___Great Hollow
    Go to the center of the cave and you'll see a familiar face. Talk to Luce 
    and you're off to another journey to Chisha Village. To go faster, try
    passing through the ancient highway.
    ___Duck Village
    This is just a place to save and prepare. When you're done, go to Chisha.
    ___Chisha Village
    Fight your way in. After all the commotion, talk to Sana and save in the inn.
    (It's right behind her). Leave town. Cutscene. Don't worry if you lose.
    Just agree with what Caesar is planning then watch the scenes. Talk to Sana
    again. You're off to the hideaway.
    If you've been here before with the other characters, you'll know what to do. 
    Just keep on going left until you see that small yellow block in the map.
    Also, try fighting the mini-boss for a change. 
    =================== :: CHAPTER 4 :: ====================
    Ok. You've finally reached this point. Your decisions here will now make a
    great impact in the game. I suggest that you make a second file when you 
    save in this trinity site. So if you ever want to come back and see other
    scenarios, you don't have to repeat right from the start. 
    There are some parts that will be different depending on your decision. 
    I will indicate them as we move along.
    Now choose. It's really your decision. :) After doing that, you'll have
    to fight. The difficulty really depends on your skills. If you're not
    comfortable then I suggest you head out first and do some leveling up
    before going inside. After the fight, another scene occurs. Don't worry.
    Just follow your instincts then...
    ___Chisha Village
    After waking up and some info, walk to the entrance. A few dialogues then
    save. Change party if you want. Then talk to the person (depends on who
    you chose) in front of the inn. For this battle, just remember to keep
    your FC alive. Stay in the advantage spots so it'll be easier. 
    ___Duck Village
    Head to the inn then go to the entrance. Make sure that you prepare first 
    and then accept. For this one, you can just retreat and defend so you'll 
    survive(that is if your characters are weak). 
    Now for Geddoe and Hugo as FC:
    Head for Sarah! 
    Just stay alive for a couple of turns.
    ___Brass Castle
    Make some preparations if you want then head inside the castle. Now what 
    happens depends on who you chose. 
    Chris:  Go to Salome's Room
    Hugo:   Go to eastern exit. Talk to Sgt. Joe
    Geddoe: Head to the western part and talk to your group.
    Now head to the eastern part of the town then a scene happens. YOu can now
    choose to rename your FC if you loaded game saves from Suikoden 2. If not, 
    then "I will be the FC". Now, battle commence! Keep alive for a few turns
    until you see old acquaintances. 
    After the scenes go to Salome's room. After that, you're off to Lake 
    Castle! Be sure to check out the tablets as well.
    ___Lake Castle
    Watch some cutscenes. You can rename your castle if you didn't do it in 
    Thomas' chapter. Save and now you're free. Since you'll want to travel
    faster, head to the mountain path. Yes it's a long way but worth it. 
    ___Mountain Path
    Walk in until you encounter somebody. Now you can teleport back to Homeland.
    Teleport back to Mountain Path. Yes, back to that place.
    ___Mountain Path
    Walk to the same area where you found her. Then another "her" will appear.
    She'll give you something that can make you teleport in and out of the 
    ___Lake Castle
    NOTE: DUring this time of the game, I suggest you recruit all the
    remaining of the 108 stars. Go to Kidd, the invesitgator, and make sure
    that no one is under the investigate list. When no one is there, 
    then you can proceed. This is to make sure that you get the perfect 
    ending plus a surprise when you finish the game. After doing so 
    then we can proceed...(I will provide the list soon)
    For the story, talk to Lucia in the Great hall.
    Make sure that you prepare yourself. Try bringing your strong characters.
    Now telport to the Great Hollow.
    ___Great Hollow
    You'll see someone running. Follow whoever that is to the Cyndar Ruins.
    When you reach the mid part of the ancient ruins, the door is now open.
    Head in and save.
    ___Cyndar Ruins
    If you want to go quick, go to the right path in the 3-way crossing at the
    start. You shouldn't get lost. Walk until you see a second save point.
    You know what that means. After saving, head inside. There will be a lot
    of scenes and a boss fight when you enter. Some of the scenes also depends
    on who your FC is. So when everything's done, the chapter will end. 
    =================== :: CHAPTER 5 :: ====================
    Again, if you haven't collected all the possible recruits at the moment,
    I suggest you do so. 
    Rest. The next day, go to the courtyard. No proceed to the great hall.
    (Go left when you enter the mansion, then the first door on the right).
    Cutscenes. The countdown to the ending begins. Make sure you prepare.
    Level up if you're nowhere near level 50. I also suggest Geddoe should be
    at least level 50. The teleport is temporarily disabled.
    ___Mountain Path
    Just proceed and go to Le Buque. Save in the next save point then You can
    fight the mini-boss. In the place where the boss is, choose the north path.
    ___Le Buque
    Enter and watch the cutscenes. Go to Iku's house. Just go north and it's on
    the upper part of the map, beside the inn. You should know the location by
    now. Save!
    ___Mt. Senai
    Walk to the last chamber up north and a cutscene will occur. Fight!
    Now when it's time to leave, fight all 5 rounds of monsters. Don't give up
    because you'll need this to get the secret ending. After the 5th round, 
    you should be ok.
    Head to Brass Castle. Don't forget to level up your skills and sharpen
    your weapons.
    ___Brass Castle
    Go to the eastern exit. Cutscene. Save.
    ___Kuput Forest
    Just proceed and eventually a cutscene will occur. 
    Talk to Cecile. Iksay? Try to exit and enter. If nothing happens, go to 
    Iksay first. Nothing will happen so head back to Homeland.
    ___Brass Castle
    Head to the eastern exit. Save first before battle. A few tips: First, wait
    for someone to appear to kill Yuber, otherwise, you'll only inflict 0 
    damage. Second, attack Yuber indirectly, meaning use your runes to damage
    him. Then if ever you go hand-to-hand, it'll be much easier.
    Exit first and check the tablet of stars. This is the last time you'll 
    be able to collect characters for the extra scenario. You'll have one
    more chance later to recruit but you won't get the secret ending. 
    Ok, some notes first. The next battle is the final major battle. If you want
    to get the secret ending, no one should die during this battle. Meaning to
    say that not one unit should disappear. Some of your characters can die but 
    that unit should still be alive. 
    During this time, I leveled up my characters. I had everyone (except for
    about 5 people who doesn't battle) reach level 50+. To do so, the best place
    to level up (at least for me) is the FCHideaway. My usual party is 2-3 
    strong members and the rest are weak. If you have a character whose level
    is 20 and you fight in this place, it is possible that he or she gains
    10 levels instantly in one fight, if not more. You can also go to the 
    Cyndar Ruins and go to the place where you got the True Water Rune, then 
    fight the mini-boss. You should get the Champion rune in the treasure chest. 
    With this equip, you won't encounter weak enemies, only enemies supposedly
    stronger than you. But you can still beat them. One more tip in leveling up
    strong characters. For faster level up, just bring 2 of your strongest 
    members... so instead of the exp. to be divided by 6, it will only be 
    divided by 2.
    If you're ready, proceed to the Great Hall inside the mansion. Cutscene.
    You'll be prompted if you're already. If you say yes, then you can go
    to the courtyard for a cutscene. Battle begins.
    For this one, your main target is Yuber. If you followed my advice, 
    then this should be an easy battle. Just make sure that you attack Yuber
    with Rune Skills first so it'll be easier to kill him. It's also possible 
    to defeat him using only runes.
    ___Ceremonial Site
    This is the final dungeon. The objective and place is pretty straightforward.
    For some additional scenes, choose the default party when you're given 
    the chance.
    Chris:  Borus, Percival, Salome, Roland, Leo and Louis as support.
    Geddoe: Joker, Queen, Ace, Jacques, Aila, support (whoever)
    Hugo:   Sgt. Joe and Fubar (the reamining doesn't matter)
    Just go to the door where each character is assigned. This is a good place
    to level up. ANd remember that you can still exit the Ceremonial Site and 
    visit other places. You can recruit characters at this point but you won't
    get the hidden ending. That's why I told you to collect them earlier.
    When you finally get the True Fire Rune, enter the gates and the final 
    battle begins. Kill the Crystals first, I suggest the water first so it'll
    stop healing then the earth so you'll be able to cast spells. (He'll cast 
    the Canopy Defense)
    After beating it, you're done! Watch the ending and if you got all the
    requirements, then you'll open up the 3rd POV in the Trinity Site!
    That's it!

    VI. Other FAQs___________________________________________________________
    I. Point of Views
    Aside from the 3 characters, there are 3 other point of views you can open.
      1. Thomas
      Opens when you talk to him in Lake Castle during Chris or Geddoe's 
      2. Koroku
      After recruiting him, just talk to him in front of the pub.
      3. ??????
      The Secret POV. Read about the Secret POV.
    II. Secret Point of View
    In order to open the secret POV, you have to fulfill the following 
    1. You have to get all possible recruits BEFORE the Final Major Battle.
    Check out Kidd's list if you are not sure. You'll get only up to 104.
    The remaning will instantly join you after the final battles if you
    got all 104 before the final major battle.
    The best time to do this is in Chapter 4 before you follow Jimba.
    2. No unit shouild die in the final major battle. If one does, then reset.
    with that, a point of view should open after you see the 108 stars of 
    destiny's ending.
