First if you know or have ever played an rpg game you know that in this game they have levels,health points,magic points,statistics,and things you would usually see throughout an rpg game.But this game is actually a simulation kind of game.A simulation game is a game that uses battle fields instead of an interactive battle as in rpgs.It is like a simulation and rpg combined game. If you are new to rpgs I will explain to you what is a rpg.The word rpg is short for Role Playing Game which is a game that contains different roles for different characters.In rpg games there are usually statistics for every character.I will describe the statistics in this game. Levels (Lv.)-Levels is one of the most important part of this game.This determines how strong you are agaisnt an enemy.Usually in many rpgs levels can be raised by gaining expirience. Expirience (Exp.)-Expirience is what raises your level to a higher one.You gain expirience by defeating an enemy.It is like you get smarter and have more abilities and become stronger (raising levels). Health points (HP)-Health points is what keeps you alive in this game and also how long you can last in the game.This is the most important thing when raising your levels.Characters that use a lot of magic are usually the ones who have the lowest health points in the game. Magic Points (MP)-Magic points are what allows you to use magic.The more magic points you have the more magic spells you can use. Special points (SP)-Special points are the same as magic points except that instead of using magic spells you use techniques. Statistics (STAT)-This shows a report of how strong you are like if you are very strong,very quick and agile,and stuff like that. Strength (STR)-Strength determines how power you have when attacking.So this means the more strength you have the more damage you can inflict on an enemy. Vitality (VIT)-Vitality determines how much HP and defense you have.The more vitality you have the more attacks you can take. Dexerity (DEX)-Dexerity determines how fast you would be in a battle.The higher your dexerity is the faster you dodge attacks and attack (higher dexerity than the enemy means you attack first.). Intellegence (MIND)-This determines how good you are at casting magic and how much damage you can take from a magic spell (Also known as Magic Defense,the more magic defense you have the less damage you get from being hit by a magic spell.For example if a Mage casts The Sleep Spell on you,it depends on your magic defense whether you fall asleep or you resist the spell.). Combined Groups-This is very important when casting a spell.When you are on the battle field and you got the same type of classes they have a better affect of doing things (like casting spells) than an affect of only one of that class would do. Buttons/Keys In this game you have to understand how the keys function in this game. A:Battle,Select,Command,and to read (like when you are finish talking you press A to read the next message.) B:Cancel Y:To Run (when you are in a scene not in a battle field.),and to travel to one place faster. X:Status Start:Program Menu,select (sometimes) The Dragon Squad Each group consist of not more than 4 warriors.Before Chapter 3 ,warriors with similiar classes are grouped together.For example,4 spearmen and 4 knights not 2 spearmen and 2 knights.When you start chapter 3 you got a choice of moving and switching the characters as you want.I don't think you should move them around because if you leave them just the way they are they get extra bonuses or mobility (like move longer or more of a powered version of a magic spell.For example,one wizard can only cast a spell at Level 10,but four wizards can cast a spell at level 40!)Amoured warriors uses SP for special attacks and wizards or priests uses MP.In this game each group has a dragon accompanying it.You can also arrange the dragons in Chapter 3. Landscape The game is more of a simulation (Focouses on battle fields rather on interactive battles) and there are different types of terrain you will see as you play the game. Grass-The most common and the easiest terrain type to walk on. Hills (looks like a single tree)-The second common and easiest to cross on. Forest (bunch of trees,don't get mixed up with a hill.)and high grass-This is pretty hard to cross but if you cast fire to burn the high grass or forest then cool the burnt terrain with ice,it will be easier to cross.But beware not to be in the fire when you cast fire,you can lose HP. Poison pools-These are very difficult to cross.If you cast heal on the pool then the pool starts to dissapears.But still it is very difficult to cross but does no damage of affect to you. Water/Ocean-This terrain is impassible,but if you cast ice you can make a trail to cross the other side. Mountains-The hardest to cross,use thunder or eletric magic to break the mountains.Still it is very hard to cross. Castles/Towers/Gates-These terrain types heal you also the enemy.You can cast thunder to prevent the enemy from being healed.But it will be difficult to cross. Lava-These terrain is very difficult to cross and inflicts a lot of damge to you.Some lava can be cooled down by using ice and some can't. Bridges-This terrain is like the grass terrain,except when cast thunder on a bridge the bridge will collaspe and anyone who got caught in the collaspe has 3 turns before they drown.A very useful terrain to lure the enemy.If a bridge is on water,cast ice to hold it back and cast fire to melt the ice. The Program Menu If you want to access the program menu press start.There are 3 options: END TURN/ROUND-If you want to end your turn or you have finish your stratagy or if you don't want to command your remaining squad(s) in this round the select this. TEMPORARY SAVE-Choose this command if you want to save during the battle.You can load where you were by selecting Temporary Save on the opening menu. SOUND-Choose what type of sound control you want Studio,Mono,or Slilent. Checking the Enemy Squad This is very useful when you want to know how strong they are or what is their weakness.Just do the same way as when you are using your squads. The Command Menu The command menu is used when you are on the battle field. FIGHT (only if you are next to the enemy's squad):In this mode you fight head to head with the enemy.All 4 warriors will fight agaisnt the enemy.You can use magic/techniques,item,and to defend your self so that when the enemy inflicts damage on the character who used defense then it will do less damage than it will if he/she did not chose defend.You can attack the whole squad or attack a single enemy in the squad.However you will also be hit by the enemy (unless you kill them all). MOVE:Your mobility will be highlighted.You can go up to the number of steps in any dirrection. FIELD/CAST/ATTACK AREA-In this mode you won't be attacked by the enemies.You can choose magic/an attack to cast on to the enemy.Press A when you have selected your attack and you should see a flash then the enemy will lose HP.You can only cast one magic spell so think wisely before you cast a spell.This is also recommended when several enemy squads are packed together,target in the center. For example: X XCX O X Legend: X=Enemy Squad C=Casting area (where to cast) O=Your squad (which is casting the spell.) Also you can use magic to heal your squad(s) and dragons. DRAGON COMMANDS-There are 3 different types of commands for the dragon that is accompanying you.The 3 commands are: COME-Call the dragon to come near you also to attack and protect you. GO-Call the dragon to attack the enemies (keep on eye on them or they could die in the round.It is not dying but being defeated.) WAIT/STOP-Call the dragon to stay behind you and not attack. (use this command when building your squad's levels.) Note:your dragon will move after you finish your commands (meaning like after you battle an enemy then it will be your dragon's turn to move or battle.) 2.Characters There are many characters in the game but I haven't got them all yet.You are the hero (Byuu is his original name) in this game.There are four characters for each group.Each group is different classes and unique in their own way.I will show you an example. Byuu's Group:uses SP,Stronger in strength and HP weaker in casting magic. 1.Byuu -Guardian Knight Can use technique attacks,Attacks the whole enemy squad. 2.Bikke -Knight Can use technique attacks,hits a single unit 3.Tuluse -Knight Can use technique attacks,hits a single unit 4.Rush -Knight Can use technique attacks,hits a single unit Zendak's Group:uses MP,Stronger in intellegence and magic weak in strength. 1.Zendak -Warlock Can use magic spells,attacks a whole group or single unit and can also use summon magic (later in the game),attacks the whole enemy squad. 2.Karina -Wizard Can use magic attacks,attacks a whole group or a single unit 3.Anna -Wizard Can use magic attacks,attacks a whole group or a single unit 4.Melody -Wizard Can use magic attacks,attacks a whole group or a single unit Did you see the difference?Well if you didn't Byuu's group gains more HP and strength than Zendak's group.But gains less intellegence than Zendak's group does.Also the leader gets a better class and stronger class. There are many characters in the game and I want to describe them all.By the way the STR,DEX,VIT,MIND is what status do they start with when you get them (By order). Their Name Class LV HP MP/SP STR DEX VIT MIND 1.Byuu Guardian Knight 2.Bikke Knight 3.Tuluse Knight 4.Rush Knight 5.Zendak Warlock 6.Karina Wizard 7.Anna Wizard 8.Melody Wizard 9.Matelight Power Guardian 10.Taicho High Guardian 11.Barcly High Guardian 12.Gunsou High Guardian 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. Note:When I start all over again then I can put the stats and more people. Dragons Dragons can evolve from one shape or appearance to another.Through you have to feed them items to evolve.The more items you feed them the more powerful and stronger they become when evolving.A maxinum stat of Dragons are 9,999 HP,999 MP,250 of STR,DEX,VIT,and MIND,and many other stats.But,you could keep on feeding them fire weeds,ice weeds,thunder weeds,and other weeds to increase their elemental power (which can go up to 100 for each element.).Also you can feed them weapons and armor to make them stronger in STR,DEX,VIT,and MIND.They can evolve to many things so watch them evolve because you might see some interesting or cool evolutions. Now time for the stats when they start out(By order).They each have a different element.I will tell you what each element is so you can understand the chart.F=Fire I=Ice T=Thunder P=Poison H=Heal Name Element LV HP MP STR DEX VIT MIND F I T P H 1.Red Fire 2.Ice Drake Ice 3.Morton Holy 4. 5. 6. Note:When I start the game over again then I can find out their original stats. 4.Enemies This section is to provide information about the enemies in this game.There are over 100's of different enemies.You people are lucky I made information about enemies.How strong they are every thing like what is their weakness,HP,MP,and others.In the chart S=Steps (how far they can move) T=Type of element W=Weakness or what affects them the most.By order I will put the information of each enemy here. Class LV HP MP STR DEX VIT MIND S T W 1.Soldier 2.Blue Mage 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Note:When I start the game over again then I will place them here. 5.Magic 6.Items 7.The Guide 8.Tips and Tricks I only know one trick,which is for Game Genie... The Code is "Earn 65525 GP after every battle (interactive) =DB8B-DFD0 + BD8B- DF00 + DD8B-DF60 " and that should get you 65525 gold after every battle.
