----
ALEC
----

  Alec's entire family was wiped out in the Great Disaster. And, had it not
  been for the kind hand of a heroic Hunter, Alec surely would have perished
  as well. Rushed away from the fire that would eventually consume his city,
  he was transported to the Isle of Eteru, where he began a new life in Sasha
  Village with many other refugees. One of those refugees was a boy named
  Lutz, who became Alec's best friend and confidant. Alec will tell his desire
  to become a Hunter to anyone who will listen. One day, when the village is
  attacked by bandits, the door to that opportunity opens...

----
LUTZ
----

  Lutz is a charming, earnest young man who speaks before he thinks more often
  than not. He would lke to think himself quite the ladies' man, but his
  hyperactive nature and complete ignorance of etiquette invariably cause all
  women he approaches to run away screaming. However, there is one very
  significant woman in Lutz's life -- his beloved sister. Having survived the
  Great Disaster that claimed their parents, Lutz and his sister Kuretta have
  ane specially close relationship.

----
THEO
----

  Theo's mother was a legendary Cardist who disappeared mysteriously, shortly
  after he was born. Possessing an earnest manner, and eager to get along with
  others, Theo is well-liked by all. His dream is to become a Cardist like his
  mother. Though he won't admit it, he secretly hopes joining Alec and his
  travels will result in a reunion with her.

------
CHERYL
------

  Cheryl has lived most of her life on the mean streets of Gislem, hustling
  and fighting her way through a rough life. Fiercly independent and extremely
  competitive, she is disappointed with anything less than a first-place finish
  in competition. She has extensive knowledge of weapons, and an especially
  deep understanding of firearms. Her dream is to build the ultimate firearm,
  using the new field of synthesis pioneered at the Weapon Society. Having
  lived a hard life, she trusts no one but herself and her gut. Alec's arrival
  may change all that...

------
MARSIA
------

  Marsia lives in the school village of Rusaht, researching the art of Natural
  Spells at the Spell Institute. Having spent a considerable amount of time in
  spell studies, she is lacking in social skills. Gifted with an analytical
  mind and a calm nature, she can accomplish anything she sets out to do, given
  enough time.

-------
VELHART
-------

  Velhart is a master swordsman who lives in a mountain cabin in the land of
  Palte [sic] with his brother. Because of his amazing skill with all manner
  of blades, Velhart's name is known around the world. However, any kind of
  inflated ego is refreshingly undetectable. He spends most of his day in
  training, rarely engaging in conversation with others. Only when th
  conversation turns to his brother does Velhart demonstrate any emotion at
  all.

--------
ANRIETTA
--------

  Anrietta Rochefort is the spoiled-rotten daughter of a business tycoon, and
  lives in Paltos. After meeting Alec on a job, she repeatedly calls him back
  for menial or stupid tasks, developing a crush on him in the meantime. She's
  the game's secret character that can be obtained through the job system, if
  you play the cards right...

 Status effects are abnormalities that cause trouble for the allies, whether
 they prevent some commands from being used or simply prolong the battle.
 Unlike other RPGs, there are only a few bad ones to watch out for. NOTE:
 all abnormalities can be inflicted on enemies as well.

.-----------.----------------------------------------------------------------.
| SLEEP     | Character falls asleep and cannot act in battle. Attacking the |
|           | unit with magic does not wake it, but physical attacks will.   |
|-----------+----------------------------------------------------------------|
| GRAVITY   | Similar to the "Don't Move" status in Final Fantasy Tactics, a |
|           | unit inflicted with this is unable to move when it's his/her   |
|           | turn to act.                                                   |
|-----------+----------------------------------------------------------------|
| SILENT    | Those inflicted with this status cannot use their skills, and  |
|           | for Theo, he cannot use his skills OR Summon command.          |
|-----------+----------------------------------------------------------------|
| PARALYSIS | Units hit with paralysis cannot take action, and don't recover |
|           | for awhile. Attacks do not knock them out of this status, and  |
|           | that's why it's GREAT to inflict on enemies.                   |
|-----------+----------------------------------------------------------------|
| CONFUSION | Units will attack and use skills indiscriminately, attacking a |
|           | friend or foe with as much gusto. Physical attacks'll remove   |
|           | this status.                                                   |
|-----------+----------------------------------------------------------------|
| HEMO-JI   | Those inflicted with a hemo-ji status cannot use skills or the |
|           | Item command (or Summon command for Theo). Strength will lower |
|           | but from what I've seen, defense may actually RISE...          |
|-----------+----------------------------------------------------------------|
| POISON    | Units will lose HP each time their turn comes up.              |

01) Sasha Village                                                        [WK01]
_______________________________________________________________________________
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 Although this is the beginning of the game, there isn't much to do here. The
                                setting is that Elc and Lutz, two friends, see
 o---------------------------o  the town get taken over by bandits. After they
 | ITEM CHECKLIST            |  get confined to a house, they manage to escape
 o---------------------------o  at their elder's bidding to get help in the
 |  _                        |  neighboring town of Itio.
 | |_| Bounty Money          |
 | |_| Herbs [x5]            |  The [BOUNTY MONEY] and [HERBS] are received as
 | |_| Battle Manual         |  a parting aid, as well as a Battle Manual that
 '---------------------------'  will help...in battle. Surprise, huh?

 Save in the upper-right corner of the room and exit the house and town. On
 the world map, head south and try to cross the stream.

02) Tohde Bridge                                                         [WK02]
_______________________________________________________________________________
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 Using the battle primer, you can look up a few subjects that'll help in the
 first battle (Movement, Attacks, Commands, End Turn). If you're familiar with
 any previous Arc the Lad games, there's not much to learn.

.----------------.---------.---------.----------.----------.------------------.
| Lv. 01 Opossum | HP:  18 | MP:  08 | ATK:  24 | DEF:   5 | DIFFICULTY: 1/10 |
'----------------'---------'---------'----------'----------'------------------'

  There isn't much to do here, because even if you rush in recklessly and let
  the enemy get the first strike, if they attack from close-range there's a
  chance the ally will counter. They only have 18 HP, after all. Their close-
  -up physical attack can do about 14 and their Seed Spray attack does single
  digits. One good thing is that attacking even once here will result in an
  easy level-up. Attacking from behind or the side is best for inflicting the
  best damage, remember. At LV2, Alec learns Cure and Lutz learns Knife Rain,
  so there's no reason this should result in a game over.

 You end up back on the world map afterwards, but can spend time fighting the
 ugly hordes at Tohde, or jet straight for Itio.

 STORE: [SH01]

 This is a large town, yo. If you head straight east through and enter the
 joint with the wooden door, you can find the shop. It sells items, weapons,
 and armor -- all rather bad, but better than the 'nothing' you have equipped,
 yeah?

 The guild is located NW corner of town, if you don't feel like asking anyone
 for directions. A man named Leegle will accept the job and everyone heads
 right back to the village automatically.

 o---------------------------o  After some events where the robbers end up
 | ITEM CHECKLIST            |  getting bushwhacked, return to Alec's place to
 o---------------------------o  sleep off the burn. After a nap, visit Lutz'
 |  _                        |  house next door to find Leegle's went for a
 | |_| Magic Apple           |  walk. He's in the NE part of town by the creek,
 | |_| Recovery Tonic        |  and suggets Alec try out the Itio Guild's test
 '---------------------------'  to become a Hunter.

  As he leaves, he tosses Alec a [MAGIC APPLE]. When the crowd disperses, veer
  north to the berry field and talk to the chief, who'll want Alec to help Lutz
  pick some num-nums. Too bad both have thoughts of skipping town. Talk to the
  elder at his house again and he'll open the gate after some dialogue. Kuretta
  gives Lutz a [RECOVERY TONIC] for the journey. Time to split back to Itio!

 It's a good idea to level-up a bit at Lukae Riverbank before coming here. At
 LV5, Alec can learn Force Ring which may be useful later. Try to get at least
 a Leather Armor for each character (120g) which will help their defense. Make
 sure to rest/save at the inn before going to the guild HQ, also!

 ---

 After some heckling, the guildmaster lets Alec have a shot at doing a 'baby
 job'. If he does it perfectly, he can become a Hunter. Talk to him behind the
 booth and accept the first job. It's to retrieve a fragment of the Ghost Dream 
 Crystal from the Trial Cave, northeast of Tohde Bridge. Make sure to rest at
 the inn if you didn't already.

 Make sure you have all the supplies you need (equipment, Herbs) before setting
 foot into here, 'cause you can't leave once you go in. Two screens in behind
 the waterfall, there's a stall battle.

.------------------.--------.--------.----------.----------.------------------.
| Lv. 5 Slime      | HP: 15 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:  10 | DIFFICULTY: 2/10 |
| Lv. 2 Cave Bat   | HP: 15 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:   5 |------------------' 
| Lv. 5 Sidewinder | HP: 26 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:   6 |
'------------------'--------'--------'----------'----------'

 If your characters are LV5+, this will be gravy. Take out the slime and cave
 bats (two each) first since they'll go down in one hit, and tango with the
 Sidewinder snake when it nears. It can do a bit of damage, but nothing that
 Cure can't smooth over. Use the various rocks and obstacles to prevent foes
 from flanking you or snippin' at your aft side. Cave Bats heal themselves if
 they land an attack (~10 HP), so don't let 'em wander around ciphoning health.

 After battle, take the east enemy-less passage to two treasure chests. One's
 got an [IRON KNIFE] and the other contains an [HERB]. Note that you'll have to
 fight the same enemy group above once more, this time from the eastern side of
 the room! Continue north from that first fork and get the [PALO NUT] stuck in
 a rocky chest. This leads to a second battlesite.

.------------------.--------.--------.----------.----------.------------------.
| Lv. 2 Cave Bat   | HP: 15 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:   5 | DIFFICULTY: 2/10 | 
| Lv. 5 Sidewinder | HP: 26 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:   6 |------------------'
'------------------'--------'--------'----------'----------'

 Two of each this time, with the Sidewinders nearest. One long-range attack of
 throwing knives lets Alec finish 'em off, so there's no xtreme strategy one's
 to employ here. You can probably finish off the cave bats with a single
 counterattack. Just defend the first turn (idle) and don't bother advancing to
 the southern portion of the room because stalagmites and such block the clear
 path. One weird thing I noticed is that if a cave bat absorbs HP and someone
 counters it, even if it should be dead, that HP it absorbed keeps it alive...

 Heal up and continue south to the Trial Cave's B2-A floor.

.------------------.--------.--------.----------.----------.------------------.
| Lv. 2 Cave Bat   | HP: 15 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:   5 | DIFFICULTY: 1/10 | 
| Lv. 5 Sidewinder | HP: 26 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:   6 |------------------'
'------------------'--------'--------'----------'----------'

 Same as before except with one less Sidewinder. Take that out first and bash
 some skulls on the bats. It's easy fights like that make me not want to stick
 in a strategy...

 Continue north to an west/east fork. Go east first and into the room with the
 large pit in the middle. Get an [IRON SPEAR] for your troubles and continue
 north until another fork is found. Continue east into a room with four chests!
 Two [SHIMMER STONE]s, a [FALCON STATUE], and a [PALO NUT] can be found within.
 Back at the fork, take the other one that curves north and back west. This'll
 lead to a room with two savepoints. The red one refills HP/MP and the other's
 a normal one. Before you continue, take the southern exit here until it comes
 to another room...

.------------------.--------.--------.----------.----------.------------------.
| Lv. 6 Ogre       | HP: 40 | MP: 60 | ATK:  39 | DEF:   5 | DIFFICULTY: 3/10 |
| Lv. 5 Sidewinder | HP: 26 | MP: -- | ATK:  30 | DEF:   6 |------------------'
'------------------'--------'--------'----------'----------'

 A little harder than normal with the inclusion of Ogres, who may cast a couple
 magic spells. They start near each other, so defeat the nearest Sidewinder to
 make sure they don't all tag-team someone at once. This is a good battle to
 use Force Ring in, although any enemies that get killed by other monsters do
 not give EXP to your allies. Ogres have horrible defense as you can see, so it
 isn't a trial to take one down each round. Lutz can use 'Steal' (learned at
 LV7) to take Herbs from the big pink monsters if he needs to.

 Take the [SHIMMER STONE] from the chest and backtrack to the savepoints. Raid
 the chest for another [SHIMMER STONE]. Inspect the large crystalline door by
 here and choose to push on it, which opens the thing. Inside is the crystal's
 keeper, Tengaron...who's also the same guy who was at the guild earlier...

.------------------.---------.--------.---------.----------.------------------.
| Lv. 8 Tengaron   | HP: 155 | MP: 50 | ATK: 40 | DEF:   7 | DIFFICULTY: 4/10 |
'------------------'---------'--------'---------'----------'------------------'

 A boss who uses guns and doesn't summon minions to do his legwork -- I like
 this dude's style! His attack can do roughly about the same as an Ogre (~20),
 but he's got a range of two so he'll try not to let anyone counterattack him
 if possible. Don't stand next to each other since this means he can obviously
 attack two people at once! Use Alec's Cure to get through, and have Lutz try
 to steal a 'Fur Cape' from him. You should have plenty of opportunities if the
 average party level is 8+. Should you find this hard, fight the ogre battles
 and return to the healing point repeatedly.

 Tengaron allows the party to get a [CRYSTAL FRAGMENT] from this most holiest
 of holy sites (to him), so it's time to scoot back to Itio. Everyone leaves
 the cave automatically, anyway.

 ---

 Back at the Itio Guild, Alec earns a [HUNTER'S CREST] and is a full-fledged
 member of the Hunters now! Make sure to read the wanted board and all of the
 monsters on it to get the information put into the 'Outlaw Jobs' category.
 The game becomes a little open ended here, but the main thing is that you'll
 keep taking jobs. We'll just go in order, but when you finish the second
 job (not counting Trial Cave), a 'specialty job' comes up, being Job #6. DO
 NOT TAKE IT UNTIL ALL OTHER JOBS ARE FINISHED OR YOU'LL MISS THEM FOREVER.

 Check out the job section to complete the following:

  • Job 2 - 'Protect Medicinal Plants' -----> [JB02]
  • Job 3 - 'Supplies for Hunter Jay' ------> [JB03]
  • Job 4 - 'Nasty Creatures in the House' -> [JB04]
  • Job 5 - 'Examiner's Assistant' ---------> [JB05]
  • Job 6 - 'Chase the Monster Egg Trunk' --> [JB06]

 Following Job 6, the party will sail across the sea to Forestamore, or
 more specifically, Renn Port on that continent.

 After seeing how cool this place is, with all its sunken buildings ("The boat
 is anchored to a ROOF!"), make your way NW out of the port area into Renn
 proper. Locating the musician with the egg is first priority; the building's
 located in the NW part of town. Enter the 2nd-floor room to find the musician
 and his 'scary monster' that hatched...it's like a furry penguin baby. ^____^
 Obtain the [BABY MONSTER]! The musician will play his trumpet and everyone's
 HP will increase by 5, also.

 .--------------------.   The Monster Society, the dropoff destination, is in
 | ITEM CHECKLIST     |   the NE corner of town. A guy named Theo talks about
 |--------------------|   Carding monsters (FFVIII much?) and brings everyone

 | |_| Baby Monster   |   of the 'Cardists' and leaves. The monster gets left
 '--------------------'   here as well...JOB COMPLETE!

 Report to the guild on the southernmost street to learn that Theo's gone off
 to the ruins in the Great Scar (good heavens?). At this point, you MUST take
 Job #7 - 'Fetch the Runaway Boy.' It's possible to explore town thereafter.
 Stock up on steel equipment if you can afford it, although you still can't
 access Monaire's Shop down by the port...

 You can get first strike if you want, but their counterattacks'll definitely
 hurt. Use Force Ring to (try and) inflict Confuse to get most out of your
 hair and cut down any stragglers with the next attack. The reason for the low
 difficulty is that steel equipment makes them look like chicken-hawks...

 After defeating the first wave, more show up. A mysterious woman scares them
 all off, though, with some gadget. The name's Sharon, an Academy scientist!
 She doesn't join the party, however. On the world map, go up the road and
 look for a small NE branch that leads to the Great Scar.

 Theo is trapped on a small ledge, so Lutz finds a vine to lower everyone down
 and get him. They escort him inside the Sealed Ruins. There is a puzzle shift
 thing to do with Theo here, which is INCREDIBLY LAME and one of my least
 favorite things to do ever. Use [] to rotate the tiles left, and O to rotate
 them right. Use R1 to put a numerical overlay to see where the pieces go.
 Speaking of which, they should be arranged like:

                    1   2   3   4
                    5   6   7   8
                    9  10  11  12
                   13  14  15  16

 Use the Triangle button to restart. The easiest way to do this is to put the
 the pieces in the corner, starting with 1, and go left to right. If you get
 stuck, remember that you can stand on the edge and switch two at once. I found
 that this problem (having two tiles left that are screwed up) is easily done
 by this. Don't forget!

 Theo will get Cardish Powers and the Summon ability for completing this small
 puzzle. Return back to the chief outside to find he's being circled by some
 Slumber Flowers!

 Four-on-three matchup, huh? Yeah, Theo's in this fight this time. Use Cardish
 to turn the monster into a card, and that's that. Easy-peasy junk.

 After returning to the Monster Society, Theo joins the party permanently and
 this job's complete. Remember that Wanted Monsters and human-type enemies are
 unable to be Cardish'D. Get your bounty at the guild! There are more jobs to
 do, also:

  • Job 8  - Renn Hunters' Monster Assault ------> [JB08]
  • Job 9  - Model for a Troubled Painter -------> [JB09]
  • Job 10 - Chase Away the Suspicious Man ------> [JB10]

  • Job 20 - Appraisal for Mysterious Object ----> [JB20]

 Job 11 is the one that continues the storyline, and appears after doing Job
 8, 9, or 10 (pick one). This brings everyone to Lieza's Ranch in the far
 northwest of this area. One can find a [SOOTHING RING], [LIGHT ALLOY], a
 [RECOVERY TONIC], [MAGIC APPLE], and an [AMAZING HERB] in her storehouse.

 Back at the guild office, Theo asks Alec to request a job off of the isle,
 so he can see more of the world. Jobs 12-14 will have now appeared! Pick
 one and complete it; as you try to collect the bounty, you'll overhear a
 few townfolk talking about an object that fell behind the mountains. Job
 #15 will now be available. Complete it to get Jobs 16-19 available. Finish
 two jobs to unlock Job #20, a special one that takes everyone outside of
 Forestamore.

 More specifically, to Galecki Falls in North Sularto.

 lands up, err...on top of a female with a gun. Some goons call Alec's party
 the "losers from Gislem" right before they almost attack everyone...luckily
 the fighting's thwarted. The girl is named Cheryl apparently -- a munitions

 Finally, we don't have to hear that lame & grating Renn town theme! Cheryl'll
 split once everyone arrives, but we've got other things to do. Item Society's
 building is right in front of the town gate -- hooray! Deliver the mysterious
 object and learn the nearest Hunters' Guild is in Gislem, just down the road.
 A counter inside this guild (item guild) allows one to synthesize items into
 new things; try it out! Combine two Herbs together to make an 'Amazing Herb'
 which is very useful. Synthesizing costs no upfront cost, so make sure to
 save and experiment to save your inventory's stuff.

 One great weapon you can make for Lutz is the "Palo's Knife," which is created
 by synthing two Palo Nuts. For Theo, mix two Rue's Medicines to create a Card
 Trident; combine two Tridents to make a Sol Spear!

 Next door at the Weapon Society, you can find Cheryl. She'll leave, though,
 and a man says she's from the "rathole" that is Gislem. Since there's a 
 guild there, let's go! [NOTE: You have to see Cheryl here before you can

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 The ghostly enemiess physical damage is transferred back as healed HP, so
 gang up 'em first thing to prevent any ciphoning. Besides that, take this
 opportunity to Cardish some new foes.

 There is an [EMBLEM OF LARK] and a [VITALITY FRUIT] right nearby, in a gray
 box which you may easily overlook. A [LIFE FRUIT]'s to the right side of
 the screen, too. Two screens down, another fight is waiting.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Golems are powerful but slow, so you'll have time to Card Field at the very
 beginning of the fight. Gang up on them one by one and try to Cardish one or
 the other; they're rather useful.

 Collect a [MAGNETIC BELT] for your troubles and a [PALO NUT] hidden in the
 upper-right corner. Continue in another three screens for another...stall...
 battle.

| Lv. 20 Skull Warrior                |  69/00  | 112/14  |
'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Draw them close while you use Card Field, then hit 'em with Silent on Turn 2.
 The Ghosts suck as always, but be careful of the skull warrior's two-panel
 attack range. Cheryl's Napalm Edge's unique range can also help here. Cardish
 any new monsters if possible.

 When the undeads are rekilled, pick up the [GOD'S NECTAR FRUIT], [LIGHT ALLOY]
 and [RECOVERY TONIC]. Right nearby is the 'Secret Path Center' where one can
 steal a [RECO POD] and [STRENGTH NUT] before continuing into the adjacent
 area riddled with monsters.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Same as the last fight but with one extra Golem. Use Card Field like before
 and try to Cardish any weakened Golem; summon it on the next turn if you need
 to. If you got a Paralyze Ooze card [etc.] this battle goes by a lot quicker.

 In the next room, heal up/save if you think it wise, continuing down into the
 B3 area of the Secret Path.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Is this supposed to be more difficult or something? Inflict Silence on the
 Golem Masters (or use a paralysis-inflicting card summon) then run wild.
 Use Card Field of course.

 Get a [MAGIC SPRIG] and the [SILVER KNIFE] in the next screen. You shouldn't
 need it if you synthed a Palo's Knife like I said; it's simply grand! A few
 screens later is the next battle...

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Been awhile since we saw these weaklings (at the Trial Cave), and they're
 even weaker now that you can OHKO 'em. Or could you always do that? Hmm, no
 matter. Use some card summon to destroy them from across the field and wreak
 havoc on the Golems like normal.

 Get the [PALO NUT] 'round this arena and head towards the exit. Testa's right
 next to the massive gorge you just crawled under.

 Visit the Item Society to learn that a shopkeeper in Pandira refuses to sell
 the item needed (Tem's Grass). However, the protector of the town, Tosh, is
 on friendly terms with him so they ask Alec to seek his counsel. In the NE
 tent in town, talk with Tosh to learn Ali's full name (Aliorihavelymasogarli)
 which will need to be stated when meeting with him. Check out the shops here
 as well as the cluster of special shops down in the bazaar (SE exit in town)
 area. You can also play the Choko Time minigame by inspecting the large pot
 by Chongara -- more on this at a later time.

 For now, go to Pandira and watch the dazzling opening scene!

 Enter Ali's shop near the Casino and call him "Aliorihavelymasogarli" (the
 middle option) to get him to open up. Spend the 2500G you received earlier
 on the Tem's Root! Return to the Item Society in Testa for the synthetizing
 procedure and a...[HYBRID MAGIC APPLE] will be created! Take it to the Weapon
 Society nearby and watch the magic begin. Platinum Sword + Light Fragment =
 Ray Sword! Take it to the Bazaar Control Office -- the bldg. just to the
 southeast of here -- and let them keep the sample. Last but not least, get
 permission from Tosh to sell it at the bazaar and...that's it! Job #32 is
 completed.

 However, just as Cheryl's about to split again, someone screams out for help!
 A man is taken by The Academy, and Shu -- Tosh's old fighting buddy -- who is
 working with them. Oh well. The Ray Sword can be bought for 7200G in one of
 the weapon shops, after you try to leave. It's really not that much better in
 attack but it does raise various other stats (DEF, AGL, MAG +3). Buy it if ya
 feel spendy...

 To continue the storyline again, we'll have to do more...JOBS! Wahoo.......

  • Job 33 - Another Power Plant Crisis ----> [JB33]
  • Job 34 - Bazaar Item Contest -----------> [JB34]
  • Job 35 - Crash Site Monster Bash -------> [JB35]
  • Job 36 - Discover the Charm's Power ----> [JB36]
  • Job 37 - Make the Shop Prosper ---------> [JB37]
  • Job 38 - Catch the Bazaar Shoplifter! --> [JB38]
  • Job 39 - Bring Back the Water Sphere! --> [JB39]
  • Job 40 - Stop the Riot -----------------> [JB40]

 Numbers 34-37 are available once Job #32 is finished; Complete one of those
 jobs to unlock Job #38; complete that one and cash in the bounty to start
 another scene, regarding The Academy members stealing the town's Water Sphere.
 They teleport out with it and this leads to Job #39 being available. You have
 to take it as you can't leave the guild without doing so.

 During this time, Job #40 will become available in Gislem. Make sure you do
 it ASAP, as it becomes unavailable after finding out The Academy base is in
 the gigantic Romalian battleship -- the one that made the gorge that makes
 a huge rift between the Sularto area. Tosh will join after completing Job 39
 and then the destination is set: the Battleship! Just enter from South
 Sularto.

 Tosh will cut a way through the metal carcass that is the old Romalian
 battleship, giving access. A captive says that materials and people have been
 taken to another site... Open the crate with [TOUGH ALLOY] in it and enter a
 long hallway. One door is locked, the other at the far end is open. A battle
 waits inside.

| Lv. 23 Academy 1 Fighter (x2)       | 105/00  |  75/12  | DIFFICULTY: 2/10 |
'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 You've fought tougher than these guys, and their difficulty's depreciated
 since the encounter in North Sularto. Tosh can really rip into these guys,
 but even without him, you can use Card Field and achieve the same effect.
 Hopefully you bought Cheryl the Sub-Machine Gun in Testa before everyone
 was evacuated, as it can hit multiple targets if they're in close range.
 They'll only be hitting for ~30, anyway. Next!

 Scour the room for a [LIGHT ALLOY], [SWIFT ARMLET], and [RAD'S Reagent]
 before continuin' east into the hallway. Go to the far end and raid the
 control room with a [PALO NUT] inside; also, operate the console to
 remove door lock #1. This opens that door back in the first hallway, which
 leads to the torpedo bay...

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Nothing new, except for the Interceptor. Just summon a card or something
 to get this over with (an Ogre Mage may OHKO everything), although carding
 an extra robot type isn't too bad of an idea.

 Afterwards, get the [GREEN TALISMAN] and [LIFE NUT] in the console room
 next door. Flip the switch to disengage door lock #4, which is later on.
 In the meantime, enter that second long hallway (past the hangar) and take
 the middle door, which leads to a four-exit hallway. Go left. Once in the
 cafeteria, you'll have to tango with
 some more tangoes...                 .---------.---------.

| Lv. 36 Academy Special Ops          | 149/280 |  68/22  |------------------'
'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 The Lv. 36 enemy looks kind of daunting, but really, look at his ATK/DEF...
 it's a piece of crap. Use Card Field and long-range attacks like normal,
 while making use of the tables and walls to prevent as much back attacks
 and flanking as possible. Take out the Special Ops as fast as possible, as
 it WILL use wind-elemental attacks; alternatively, use Lutz' Magic Shield
 ability to prevent attribute damage (which I guess means that magic damage
 becomes non-elemental and/or there is no extra effect to weaknesses...?).

 Next door, disengage Door Lock #2, which opens one of the doors in the
 crossroads corridor left of the cafeteria. Enter the stairs to access the
 1F of the ship. The right exit leads to a jammed control; the left to a
 near-repeat battle of the cafeteria skirmish, just with one less attacker.
 One screen over, disengage Door Lock #3, which opens the southern door
 in the four-exit room. Whew, almost done.

 At the third screen, enter a storage room to find some more items, being
 a [TOUGH ALLOY], [RAD'S Reagent], [MAGIC POWER NUT], and [LIFE NUT]. Keep
 going down the corridors and eventually the party will reach the battleship
 bridge. After some events involving the Water Sphere, Tosh will leave the
 party and Shu will join.

 ---

 In the corridor immediately after the bridge, there is a resting spot & save
 journal if you need it. However, upon reaching the upperdeck, the Academy's
 members will escape via an airship (that looks curiously like the Silver Noah
 from ATL2...almost).
                                      .---------.---------.

| Lv. 13 Shotgun Trap (x2)            |  85/00  | 143/14  |------------------'
'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Despite the high ATK power, these enemies are planted into the ship's deck,
 and they can't track anyone should they need to back off to cure or somesuch.
 If you included Shu in this battle, and you should've, his Dimension Gun will
 have a HUGE range and can attack two at once. The Cannon Traps have an attack
 range that is exactly like Cheryl's Napalm Edge, which means you can avoid
 the line of fire rather easily. Avoid Shotgun Traps' range of fire by going
 diagonal to their position.

 Exit the topdeck by taking the other stairway to the east. When you get to
 the area with a laser field, avoid it and go to the room in the vicinity,
 following it to another corridor with two new doors. The middle disarms the
 laser field, the other leads to a
 lounge...                            .---------.---------.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 Horrible DEF + Shu & Cheryl's long-range attacking = Boring fight. Note that
 this fight WILL repeat each time you need to go back through, although you
 may find Gunner Pods next go-'round.

 Don't double-back to the laser field yet; continue out the lounge's other
 exit. The leftmost door leads to a [TOUGH ALLOY] chest by a console that
 tells 'Passcode 1: 9871'. That'll be useful in a sec. Return to the first
 laser field (deactivated) to get access to the next two rooms in the hallway.
 Enter Passcode 1 into one of the doors, then enter to find that Passcode 3
 is '1192'. Continue into the other door bordering the laser field to get back
 onto the battleship's deck...

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 They're not too hard to take down as long as you don't have anyone standing
 next to each other or on the same latitude/longitude (to borrow geographical
 terms). Their range is long so they can hit multiple targets with their phys.
 attack if you let them.

 Exit down the left stairway to find the 3F again. A control panel room will
 have a [RAD'S Reagent], [MAGIC SPRIG], and an [EMBLEM OF LARK] inside. There
 is also a Passcode 2 entry '3121' to find as well. So where do we find this
 input for #2? You need to exit through the lounge again and take the north-
 -pointing hallway up. Input the second passcode to gain entry to the next
 room. A [YELLOW TALISMAN] and [VIOLET FRUIT] are in here, as well as the
 laser field deactivator. Just outside, go across the once-active laserbeam
 floor and input the third passcode -- enter. Whew...almost over...maybe.

 The first red-colored door you come to, there's another sleep-'n'-save room,
 with a [MAGIC ARMLET] and [PALO NUT] duo inside as well. Continue down the
 path you haven't taken yet to find the Battleship Factory section. We will
 find the boss of this place here! I suggest using a party of Alec, Lutz,
 Theo, and Shu -- Cheryl has no real useful skills besides a weak Cure at this
 time. LET'S GET IT ONNNNNNNNN!
                                      .---------.---------.
                                      |  HP/MP  | ATK/DEF |
.-------------------------------------+---------+---------+------------------.

| Lv. 13 Crustacean (x?)              |  65/40  |  71/23  |------------------'
'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Use Card Field on everyone to help bring the Crustaceans' damage down to a
 piddly single-digit hopefully. It will use 'High Orbit Explosives' on any
 allies within a short-range, often doing 80+ damage, so we'll want to avoid
 that as much as possible. Truly, the best course of action is to Silence all
 Crustaceans so that they're really doing inconsequential damage and focus
 all attention on the Chaos Arms. It's funny-named "Whupass Beam" can do 100+
 damage and will kill any Crustaceans in range as well, which is why Alec has
 to be primed to Cure allies whenever possible. One great tactic I used was
 that the 'Armor Tortoise' card raises DEF by A LOT; Shu had 102 after! This
 doesn't affect those who had Card Field on them already, however... 'Chain
 Gun Sweeping Fire' is a rather lame physical attack that attacks those within
 a very close range; if you bunch everyone up against the behemoth in a
 certain pattern (one on each side of the main gun, one each diagonally-up from
 there) you can draw the chaingun attack AND be able to Cure everyone at the
 same time. After about 800 damage, it'll all be over...

 Follow Shu out after to finally get the heck outta this place!

 Our ninja friend asked Alec to warn Tosh about putting a heavy guard on the
 Water Sphere. Once you visit Testa again, all the refugees will have come
 back and both Gislem/Testa will have jobs once again. Yay 4 u!

  • Job 41 - Friends for Danny ---------------> [JB41]
  • Job 42 - A Request from Tosh -------------> [JB42]
  • Job 43 - Gislem Gift Courier -------------> [JB43]
  • Job 44 - Chase the Gang Away -------------> [JB44]
  • Job 45 - Take Information to the Library -> [JB45]


 Job 41 is in Gislem, and 42-45 in Testa. Job #45 will task the characters to
 leave the continent, so make sure you've finished all previous jobs before
 then.

 SHOPS: Rusaht [SH06], Paysus [SH07]

 The destination is Paysus, on the southern seaboard. The library can be found
 in the southwest part of town, but after delivering the goods and finishing
 Job #45, the man tells Alec that the guild has been closed. Exit onto the
 street and talk with Sania (a character from ATL2) to hear some weird visions
 she's had.

 But, anyway, go over to the guild to learn that ALL hunters are going for one
 extremely large job. The only job available is #46, which must be taken (see
 job section on completing it).

  • Job 46 - All Hunters, Find Tikva! --------> [JB46]
  • Job 47 - Finger the Page Pilferer! -------> [JB47]

  • Job 55 - Trainee Monk's Romance Trouble --> [JB55]
  • Job 56 - Archmonk Iga's Special Delivery -> [JB56]

 In the last leg of the job, a new character Marsia becomes a fixture in the
 party, this time for good. Jobs 47-50 then become accessible, and after
 doing two of those, Job #51 which needs to be completed. Once that has been
 wrapped up, Jobs 52-55 are up for grabs. Do two of those to open up Job #56,
 which will take everyone to the new continent of Parute.

 Everyone lands on Dartanelle Beach, and from there, make for Paltos.

 SHOP: SH08

 Upon arriving, it seems everyone is in a hurry to see what the prize for the
 Battle Tournament is. Head north and enter the stadium; there it's revealed
 the prize is a Brilliant Goddess Statue! (Hmm, where have we seen this before
 ATL2 fans?). After seeing Sharon, drop by the Item Society -- an employee'll
 tell Alec that Leshalt lives in a southern area.

 On the world map, mosey south to Paltos to arrive at the Mountain Retreat.
 Talk with Leshalt to get a job complete on #56, which opens up the requests
 in the Paltos Guild.

 Complete two jobs to open up #61, a storyline-related mission. After finishing
 the mission, Leshalt will learn of the Academy's exploits, and Jobs 62-64. Job
 #64 is another plot-centric mission, and mandatory, natch. During Job #64, the
 team will have to infiltrate the Secret Academy Base...

 I'll spare the x-treme details on these since, the only monsters within are
 Lv. 23 Academy 1 Fighters and their kin. They were annoying awhile back, but
 are mincemeat under anyone's sword 'bout now. Also note that "monster rooms"
 no longer have one-time troops in it; they all respawn each time you enter.

 Upon entering the 3-prong hallway, take the left passage up to the 2nd floor.
 Go into the southern door to enter another three-pronged hallway. The middle
 door leads to a control panel with a subcontrol room lock. There are 2 items
 in here as well, a [RECO POD] and [MAGIC SPRIG]. Don't bother with the third
 room at the far end of the hall, though.

 Return to the previous hallway and backtrack another screen; this time take
 the leftmost door into a monster room. Continue down the vacant hall past
 there, and into another 3-prong hallway. The middle room has the center
 control room unlocker, as well as a [PALO NUT], [INFERNO POWDER], and
 [MYSTERIOUS ORE] inside a few chests. The center door in the save point room
 will now be unlocked. Don't forget to get the [VITALITY FRUIT], [MAGIC POWER
 NUT], and [STRENGTH NUT] in the nearby storage room, that is if you want to
 fight two battles in and one out.

 Backtrack the way you came (unless you want to fight a bunch of gratuitous
 battles) and enter the save point room. Of course, we couldn't leave without
 a boss battle! Velhart joins.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 Suggested party: Velhart, Alec, Theo, Lutz. Use Card Field at once and boost
 the DEF, because the 'Short Cannon' attack can do 100+ damage normally to a
 large radius. 'Gatling Barrage' can attack in a straight line across the
 field, hitting multiple people that way. Still, it's a pretty crappy attack
 with Card Field involved. Attack the Steingraffs one at a time, particularly
 with powerful cards (Dragon, Ogre Lord, etc.) and Impulse Bomb. Velhart is
 not that great here, surprisingly, but his stats are impressive nonetheless.
 Make sure Alec has enough MP to use Cure, which is invaluable here. Each has
 about 500 HP, which means this ain't entirely tough -- their DEF is fairly
 poor.

 Afterwards, Velhart joins the party permanently. To complete the job, take
 the ancient Aura Stone to the Paltos Item Society special warehouse.

 Enter the guild once the job has finished to be let into their special room.
 The Guildmaster, head of all the world's guilds, and the presidents of all
 the societies are just hangin' back there! They want Alec to work in concert
 with the guilds for a special mission, being:

 [SEARCH ACADEMY HQ!]

  Find and infiltrate The Academy Headquarters in Ragnark, and obtain detailed
  information regarding their plans. Report findings to Guildmaster!

  • Job 65 - Make Dartanelle Beach Safe Again -> [JB65]
  • Job 66 - Crisis at Rochefort Manor --------> [JB66]
  • Job 67 - Gruga's Surveillance Request -----> [JB67]
  • Job 68 - Catch Mamaman's Depression -------> [JB68]
  • Job 69 - Search Academy HQ! ---------------> [JB69]

 The Academy is a threat to the world's existence; their base is in the country
 formerly known as Romalia. A Hovercraft is supposedly going to be used to get
 into the country. Cariote Cave supposedly has one -- to open it, move the
 control right thrice, left twice. To officially take this job, get Job #69
 at the front guild desk. Once that's been accepted, jobs #65-68 will appear.
 If you want to do all of them, now the best time -- you can't get 'em after
 doing Cariote Cave's events.

 That's where the hovercraft it, and that's the next destination.

 Crypt Rat and Flame enemies appear here, and while the latter is new and 
 powerful, it has horrible DEF/HP and should not pose a problem. About this
 time, enemy encounters follow the same strategy (Card Field -> Impulse Bomb)
 anyway, so I'll just skip the specifics. Note that the "X" on the map will
 still indicate an enemy-encounter room.

 Enter and take the left path into a minefield area, which will damage all of
 the allies when you walk on one. Where are they? Who can say, but you can
 avoid most of them by not touching any 'border' squares on the rocky tiles.
 There is a [INFERNO POWDER] and [RAD'S REAGENT] chest duo here. North two
 screens is another [RAD'S REAGENT] and [LIGHT ALLOY] to put in your parsel.
 Pull the lever and head back to that first screen, going right at the fork.

 Past some deactivated arrow traps, climb the rope into the next floor. There
 are tiles here that Alec can fall in, even if he's walking slowly; luckily, a
 fall will send him to the room right below which has no monsters. Unluckily,
 the broken tiles don't show up as such, so you'll have to memorize the path
 through. To get through: Go this way:


    START               .-EXIT      Take the rope down into the next room, a
      |                 |           monster-full one... Past there, enter a
     FORK               |           2nd minefield room. Inside, a [PALO NUT]
      |                 |           and [RECOVERY TONIC] can be found. There
     FORK----FORK--.    |           are dual exits, but go east to find the
                   |ROCK|           second lever. A [INFERNO POWDER] and
                   '----'           [RAD'S REAGENT] can also be found in this
                                    area, too. Pull the lever, double-back a
 room, and climb the north rope. Continue into another room where there is a
 holey floor. To navigate, go like such:

    START----------------.WALL
                         |         Work your way to the western wall and take
WALL.-FORK               |         the 'EXT' to a three-chest storage room. It
    |   |                |         has a [RECO POD], [STRENGTH ARMLET], and
    | FORK--FORK         |         [RAD'S REAGENT] inside. Return back 1 room
    |        |           |         and wind your way counterclockwise to the
    |       FORK--FORK   |         chest. That chest you find in the holey
EXT-|              |     |         room has a [PALO NUT]; to get it, you need
    |CHEST---.    FORK---'WALL     to REALLY go counterclockwise, by sticking
    '--------'                     to the extreme edges of the east, then
                                   north to find it. Fall in the hole to get
 into the room below, where a [LIFE NUT] waits. The plank will fall in the
 water and let you access all previous rooms again. Go south and kill all of
 the baddies (the Shaman Hemo-jis can restore KO'd monsters! Watch out!).

 Continue until a north/south fork and go up; there's a save point/rest stop
 there for recuperating. South from the fork is what's noted on the map as
 the 'Ladder Maze'. There's no enemies here, luckily.

 This place is quite massive, but it shouldn't be too hard to deal with if you
 use the above map. Keep heading south until you get into the third screen, by
 the [MYSTERIOUS ORE] box. Double back one screen and take the southern of the
 three east passages; this leads to a rope down. Follow to the "E" rope and
 continue north into the first screen, where there are two ropes to take. The
 one closest to the middle leads to another [MYSTERIOUS ORE]. Go back up and
 take the "G" rope over to the "H" rope. Follow south to the #16 item, a
 [TOUGH ALLOY]! It's not possible to go west or south -- go west.

 Rope I & J are here -- ignore them as they just connect to each other. Arc
 counterclockwise out of here, to where Rope K is. A [MYSTERIOUS ORE] and
 [INFERNO POWDER] can be found below, as well as two other ropes. Take Rope
 N to a [MYSTERIOUS ORE], then double back to the three-rope room. Take "K"
 back out again.

 Whew, almost done. Back up "K", head down and west, then south into a large
 room with the "P" rope accessible. Follow it to the "Q" rope, then exit in
 the northeast to find the "R" rope, which leads to the "S" rope. You'll end
 up in the middle of the 2nd screen again. Follow the "T" rope to the #20
 item, a [FLAY'S CREST]. Climb back up, go east, take the "U" rope down to a
 "V" rope; exit back into the normal cave portion. North a screen, take the
 "W" rope to a [STRENGTH NUT]; double-back and go north. You'll be back in
 the 1st screen! Take the "X" rope, save, and follow the "Y" rope up to...

 NOTE: If you have forgotten anything specific to this disc, such as Outlaw
 Jobs or regular jobs, go back and do them now! I know that seems like a
 really horrible thing to put you through since you just went through a big
 'n' annoying maze, but if you save when Lutz asks in a moment, you CANNOT
 go back and do anything!
 ###########################################################################

 ...THE HOVERCRAFT! Lutz produces a Save Journal -- we just had a save point
 you nerd! -- and asks Alec to save before talking to him. Lift off when you
 finally get the nerve 'n' verve! END OF DISC 1!

 ---

 Now that you have the hovercraft, all previous towns with guilds have new
 Outlaw Jobs to complete, and some places have a few jobs to do:

  • Job 70 - Changes at Amaidar Temple --------> [JB70] --> Paysus
  • Job 72 - Explore the Treasure Dungeon! ----> [JB72] --> Testa
  • Job 75 - Get to the Artist's Exhibition ---> [JB75] --> Renn

 Job #72 leads to Kutao Temple, which is a large optional dungeon filled with
 priceless treasures. It's highly recommended since, y'know, there's no reason
 to stave off.

 ---

 Everyone ends up on Ragnark Beach and Lutz spots a city, with one of the
 funniest/poorest names ever: Felator... Skip to [WK19] to continue with all
 the mandatory storyline stuffs; keep going for the optional Kutao Temple.

 Anyway, eventually you will have to fight some hunters in one of the rooms
 marked in blue.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 These selfish brigands can still be dropped like a sack of bricks, just with
 Silence + Fatal Dagger + Impulse Bomb. Use Excitement to raise everyone's
 ATK if you need to, but chances are, you won't have to. Brain Blast's chance
 to inflict paralysis may help out as well. [NOTE: Subsequent encountesr with
 these two idiots are different; they will be accompanied by 3 Lv. 43 Treasure
 Hunters who use whips (two-panel range). Heal up!] Note that these do not
 count as hunters that need to be saved.

 Anyway, proceed through the maze in any way you like until you get to the
 warp room. There are four panels, going from left to right. The leftmost (#1)
 will be pushed in and may not work, #2 & #4 return Alec to the room with the
 first tablet, and #3 makes the northern exit lead to the B3 area.

 At the second warp room on B2, if you read the tablet, you'll know to pick
 the path "that memory dictates." Which, of course, means the destination is
 once again the third panel. This opens the way forward again; the others only
 warp back to the large room with an "X" or the tablet nearby. North two rooms
 will lead to a hunter whose female companion's been kidnapped by some golems.

                                      .---------.---------.

| Lv. 47 Crystal Golem (x2)           | 297/90  | 214/47  |
'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Like usual, Fatal Dagger can help get rid of some of these with ease, while
 Excitement/Card Field will help buff out the party. Their starting formation
 is horrible like usual, and any upgraded attack can hit all six of them in a
 single go. Also, they're remarkably slow, so if you work fast, you can get
 rid of most of them before their first turn.

 ---

 In Warp Room 3, simply go in the door already chosen -- the tablet tells of
 the future, which means the default panel is the one you use. (You can tell
 which warp room it is by the number of swirls on the central floor panel.)
 Warp Room 4 has four different paths to take:

  • PANEL 1 -> Tablet #5
  • PANEL 2 -> Hunters, then 
  • PANEL 3 -> Treasure chests x 3
  • PANEL 4 -> Two battles, then Treasure Chest x 3

 Panel 2 leads to some hunters whose companion went ahead to find some meds
 for her injured fans. Continue to the fifth warp room and press the second
 panel (from left) to keep going -- all others will revert Alec's team back
 to the room with a large 'X' on the floor, about three warp rooms prior...

 Continue along the path depicted in the map until you find the last hunter,
 who returns to her companions. Raid the chests one room up and follow back
 to where the two injured hunters were. If you got all the treasures around
 here, choose to "Join them" in going back to the surface. If you don't want
 to go back, you can warp out in the room where the last hunter was (i.e. the
 last orange spot on map).

 Everyone automatically returns to Testa and it's a job complete!

 Upon entering this Academy-controlled place, it appears that this is their HQ
 and Sharon's here as well. You can sleep for free at the barracks, as well as
 buy crystal weapons at the shop. Try to access the northern building and view
 a scene involving some scientists entering there. Lutz comes up with the idea
 of getting a uniform to sneak in (har har); get the [LAB COAT] by the dude's
 bedside in the barracks. Try to approach again and Alec will be able to enter
 ...almost! When prompted, say "I'm working with HQ Chief Sharon."

 Finally inside!

 #############################################################################
  NOTE: Rooms with guards become vacated after you clear them the first time!
 #############################################################################

 [FLOOR 1]

  In the first room with a guard, you can exit east/west also (although it may
  be hard to see). West, you can deactivate the Intrusion Detector Array 1,
  and after that, the east room's Intrusion Detector Array 2 is open to be
  deactivated as well. At the four-way exit room, go north.

  Take the first door and find the Laser Inhibitors 1-4. Only two can be on at
  the same time. #1 and #4 cancel all of the left side-hallway's laser grids,
  while #2 and #3 cancel the right side-hallway's. Go left first which opens a
  way into another Intrusion Detector; then, turn off the right laser grids to
  find the stairs to the next floor.

 [FLOOR 2]

  The only open door here has the four Laser Inhibitors, and there are four
  grids around here. Starting from the left and only counting laser grids:

  GRID #1 -> Inhibitors 1 & 3
  GRID #2 -> Inhibitors 2 & 3
  GRID #3 -> Inhibitors 2 & 4

  For now, all you have to worry about is getting the treasure chests and
  opening the door Grid #1 protects -- the stairway goes to the Academy
  Building's 1F again. Turn off the #4 intrusion detector array and go
  back upstairs.

  Open the door that Grid #2 protects and flip off the floor grid there,
  leaving the SE door in the hallway accessible. Beyond, two guards patrol the
  warehouse area. To evade their sights, follow the nearest one along the east
  wall but idle (waste time going up/down one space) as it reaches the corner
  and loops into the middle. This is your cue to enter from the north and cut
  down the middle, as it will come back around the way it came.

  Enter a ways until you come to the third guard room, shaped like:

  |   __    _   __ 1|       The numbers represent the guards here, but it's
  |  |  |  | | |  | |       not too difficult. #1 goes counterclockwise 'round
  |  |  |  | | |  | |       the first column of boxes, so follow it and idle
  |3 |__|  | | |__| |       a bit until the other two get to the northern part
  |2       | |_   __|       of their stack. Follow behind them and reach the
   ¯¯¯¯¯¯|_|   |_|          door. Voila, simple as pie. Why did I draw such a

     EXIT-'     '-ENTER
                            Try to leave the next room and some eavesdroppin'
  will commence on Sharon and her guest, Seville. They talk about getting to
  the Academy's HQ and eventually leave. You can read papers on Sharon's desk
  about how the destination is stationed by a lake, and how some of the areas
  we'll come across have enemies that people are fearful of...

  Anyway, backtrack out and head for White Bone Forest, the first impedement
  in your trek north...

 Excitement should be used first, and then Impulse Bomb or a good card attack
 (like a Dragon or Hemo-ji). Beware of the Stone Gels' ability to inflict
 gravity, but that's about the only hazard there is here.

 Next stop: Academy HQ! Save before entering.

 By this point, you probably don't even need Excitement to take care of these
 guys. Any mass-damage attack will suffice in making 'em push up daisies...

NOTE: There are two ways to go through the place, and the HQ is actually
      separated into two buildings. The "A" Building is accessed by taking
      the stairs -- it's quicker but has a lot of enemy fights. The "B"
      building has no enemy fights but is convoluted and uses elevators quite
      a lot. The walkthrough is for the "B" route as any lunkhead with a pair
      of eyeballs can read the straightforward map and get upstairs with ease
      y'know?
#############################################################################

 Anyway...

 ---

 In the first elevator room, get an [INFERNO POWDER] and take the elevator up
 to the next floor. Here, take the rightmost working one and continue until
 a room with conveyor belts is found. Flip only the leftmost of the switches
 and board the conveyor to reach the room's west exit. Continue along to find
 an elevator unlocker -- #2 on F1 and F2 is now released!

 Backtrack to the conveyor belt room once more. Flip on the leftmost and the
 rightmost of the 3 switches and ride to the east edge of the room, where a
 [GOD'S NECTAR FRUIT] is. Further on that way is a [MYSTERIOUS ORE]. Now, to
 take the newly opened elevators! Go to the ground floor and take the second
 elevator...

 Once arriving, take the rightmost of the three elevators to its end, where a
 unlocker can be found -- this one opens Elevator 3 on 8F and 10F. Backtrack
 to the three-elevator room and go the leftmost way, which leads to a third
 unlocker, this one for Elevator 4 on 3F and 8F. Next segment!

 ---

 Return to the ground floor room with the four elevators. Take the leftmost
 and, at the destination, the rightmost, which should not be active. This
 leads to the second conveyor belt room. Out of the two switches, the left
 shoves Alec onto middle platform (don't go north yet). Turn on that single
 switch there, ride to the east platform, turn on the right switch, then
 ride all the way to solid ground. An [ASTRAL ROD] is there for the taking!
 Don't bother going north from here 'cause it's a cyclic part; instead, go
 east again and at the single switch, it's north to the 3rd conveyor room...

 ---

 Alec starts in the middle this time. Don't bother flipping the switch yet,
 though. Ride west to the next single-switch platform and follow north to a
 dead-end elevator. It's got a [WISDOM TABLET] and [SPEED RING] inside, though!
 Mosey on back to the conveyor belt room, flip the switch nearby, ride east to
 the next switch (flip it); and, from there, it's possible to sidle all the way
 to the easternmost exit. Beyond a ways is a four-way elevator room -- take the
 third-from-left one to its end and find an unlocker for Elevator 3 on 12F &
 13F, and Elevator 4 on 1F!

 Backtrack to the last (3rd) conveyor belt room and flip the eastmost switch.
 Flip off the leftmost switch, but keep the middle one on; from the second-
 -from-left platform, you can then ride the long conveyor belt to the leftmost
 platform (how many times am I going to say platform? Stay tuned!). Follow it
 to the last elevator-unlocker, regarding Elevator 3 on 1F & B1F.

 You now have to backtrack ALL THE WAY to the initial ground-floor room with
 the four elevators. It's hard to explain in reverse, so use that map I made
 as an aid -- it'll help!

 ---

 Finally, the last stretch. Take Elevator 3 to a [GRENADE LAUNCHER] and
 [WISDOM TABLET] dead-end, then take Elevator 4 a ways up to the 13F! There's
 a save point near there.

NOTE: If you want to get the two Tough Alloys at the bottom of the HQ (Items
      #2 and #3 on map), you should do so now.

 Anyway, on the 13F, take the enemy-less stairways until you're faced down
 by a gigantic dragonmachine thingermajigger.

 Leadoff with Excitement/Card Field since everyone starts so close together,
 and if Velhart's with, Omega BUSTER. Also, have Lutz use Magic Shield to
 prevent Reactor Flare's heinous fire-attribute damage. This also makes its
 super-attack "Fire Crimson" do about 100 damage to those in its proximity.
 Alec's Cure should be more than able to erase all damage dealt, and it's
 only got ~900 HP. If you have the Romancing Stone, the difficulty's about
 2/10.

 A mysterious figure saves everyone from the explosion, and it turns out to
 be.......Elc from ATL2 fame! After seeing some evaporatin' scenes, Elc'll
 recover the Hein, his airship from the previous game. He suggests talking
 to the Guildmaster and learning information about The Dark One before they
 head to the Flying Castle. An old magic user named Gogen is supposed to
 be able to help in these respects...HMM...

 After talking with the Guildmaster in Paltos, the following jobs will become
 available:

  • Job 71 - Rochefort Family Crisis ---------> [JB71] --> Paltos
  • Job 73 - Guild Staff: The Next Generation > [JB73] --> Paltos
  • Job 74 - Protect the Material Shipment ---> [JB74] --> Itio City

  • Job 79 - Dreaded Village of Hemo-jis! ----> [JB79] --> Renn
  • Job 80 - Sexy Casino Party Help Needed! --> [JB80] --> Testa

 Once you've completed a job in Paltos or visited a non-Paltos guild, return
 to the Guildmaster to learn Gogen's whereabouts -- Jiharta! This opens up
 Job #73 & 76. In Paysus, where Job 76 is, Tengaron points everyone to Elbow
 Cape on Jiharta's eastern seaboard. Head there...

        Strength Nut, Recovery Tonic, Life Fruit, Magic Sprig, Palo Nut, Reco
        Pod, Potent Violet Fruit, Magic Power Nut, Palo Nut, Battle Suit

[ROOM #1]

 There's a small minigame from the get-go, where Alec has to catch a moving
 box and take its contents. Coax it into the space along the western edge of
 the room to trap it, and get the [STRENGTH NUT] within.

[ROOM #2]

 The next room has two moving boxes. Scare the left box west, then do the
 same with the right box until they're sort of near each other. When you
 make them go north, they'll get trapped along that top wall. Crack open the
 [RECO POD] near the orange crate, then get the other one's [LIGHT AMULET]!

[ROOM #3]

 Two boxes again. See the two northern boxes up there? Try to maneuver one
 _______________________ into a position ("1") against the wall and box.
                 _       This allows you to fake out the next one right up
            1   [_]      against the second one, trapping it. Take the easy
           [_]           [LIFE NUT] and open the "1" box for a [LIGHT
                         FRAGMENT].

[ROOM #4]

 This one's a little easier. You need to scare all three boxes into that slot
 in the northeast portion (three-tile area), against the east wall. One will
 probably go into the middle first, making all the others' items way easy to
 steal. They contain a [LIGHT FRAGMENT], [WHITE TALISMAN], and [SOUL HERB]!

[ROOM #5]

 Four boxes this time and no crates to help with the capture. However, there
 is a way to do this. Here's how I did it (w/ diagram!). 1 space = 1 panel,
 by the way. "E" stands for empty boxes.

 02 - Push a box in between the two at this point, right here ----------'   |

                                                                       BEB  |
 03 - Make this box ---------------------------------------------------' .-'
      go counterclockwise until it gets into the NE corner here ---------'
                                                            ________________
                                                                        EB B|
 04 - Take the fourth box and move it into the slot here -----------------'

 05 - Get all the boxes!

 They contain a [LIGHT FRAGMENT], [MAGIC SPRIG], [STRENGTH NUT], and [RECOVERY
 TONIC]. Whew! Continue into the passageway with four new exits. Take the 1st
 one on the left.

[ROOM #6]

 This is a memory/tone puzzle. Step on the red box to see some tiles light
 up. You need to step on those, so don't bother observing the torches; that
 will lead you astray. Solution for stepping this room is:

      [2][4][1][5][3]

 Take the three chests in the room beyond, being [LIFE FRUIT], [MAGIC SPRIG],
 and [PALO NUT]. Back in the hallway, take the next room to the right.

[ROOM #7]

 The solution for this puzzle works out the same, although some spaces will
 be used more than once (repeat numbers are listed under spaces you'd normally
 step on).

      [1][ ][2][3][4]
      [8]   [6][5]
               [7]

 Take the prizes beyond: a [RECO POD] & [POTENT VIOLET FRUIT]. In the corridor
 take the next door to the right.

[ROOM #8]

      [1][2][3][ ][ ]
      [4]   [5][6]
      [9][8][7]

 Reward? Sure! It's a [MAGIC POWER NUT], [PALO NUT], and a [BATTLE SUIT]! Go
 in the last door in the hallway to find the next floor down. Take the middle
 door here.

[ROOM #9]

 This room makes many duplicates of Alec who bar his way as he tries to find
 the northern exit. Move north/south repeatedly to find out where the real
 Alec is located, and go north. This place has drop-off edges, meaning clones
 and Alec can fall off (in which case he'll have to come back a ways to get
 through again, but doesn't have to do all puzzles over). This time, go left &
 right one panel each to knock clones off and find out Alec's whereabouts.
 Easy!

 The third room has more edges to fall off in the north south portion, so once
 again move east/west one panel per step to knock the dopplegangers off. After
 you get through, it's...

[GOGEN'S ROOM]

 Finally made it. Gogen says the Dark One cannot be sealed, but lunkhead Lutz
 suggests why not make a new ark to steal it in...? HUH? Apparently, it was
 crafted from Eternal Flame, Eternal Ice, Eternal Tree, and Eternal Steel...
 When found, Gogen'll do the rest...

 Back on the surface, go to Paltos and tell the Guildmaster about the finds.
 This completes Job #76 and opens up a few more jobs 'round the world, as a
 time-waster 'til the Eternal items are located. Visit any non-Paltos guild
 to receive information about said items' whereabouts!

  • Job 85 - Spooky Stuffed Animal Warehouse --> [JB85] --> Testa

 After talking with the Guildmaster in Paltos, it will be learned that Eternal
 Steel was made by the Creator, and apparently can be located in Cariote Cave.
 Y'know, the LADDER MAZE OF DOOM? This opens the following job:

 At the end of the first stretch, Dorvan's family will meet up with Alec's
 crew and say that the Eternal Steel isn't here. You can use their services
 though [SH10] if you want -- they have all their bases covered. Leave when
 ready and you'll automatically exit via a shortcut.

 Everyone thinks the Eternal Steel may have been synthesized into another
 object. Choose "Another possibility?" when it comes up, and Velhart will
 suggest checking out the hero memorial hall in Paltos.

 ---

 Once there, the curator points everyone in the right direction -- the sword
 a statue is holding could probably be dated back far enough for consideration
 on the subject (Mystic Great Sword). The sword was stolen after a match in an
 ancient arena, and some say a ghost of that warrior still wanders around to
 this day. The arena used to be in Digarta Wilds, a location that hasn't been
 accessible until now. Save the game first, natch.

 [NOTE: This also allows you to hunt the monster Neros, finally~~~~~~~~~~~!]

 Go to the Digarta Wilds, located by the hovercraft's beach, and watch Velhart
 get trounced. Ugh... Talk to Gruga in Paltos, then go to the arena colosseum,
 Rochefort Manor, the Arena reception room, and Dartanelle Beach. After that,
 Velhart learns how to defeat the Ghost Warrior. To the Digarta Wilds!

 For starters, use MUSUO I/II/III to completely evade physical attacks while
 leaving openings for counterattacks. It likes to use Thunder God Fission to
 inflict decent damage, so equip Flay's Crest to help cut down on attribute
 damage. Omega BUSTER will help for inflicting non-counterable damage on the
 spectre. Seal Thunder Cut can do 100+ as well, so keep some healing items on-
 -hand (Soul Herb, Super Amazing Herb, etc.) for when Velhart's HP gets lower.
 Wing Cut is a crappy physical attack besides. He has 1000 HP, which isn't too
 hard to whittle down with Omega BUSTER doing much of the work. Still, because
 Velhart is alone, you may have trouble on the healing end. Be prepared...!

 The Ghost Warrior will ascend to the heavens and [ETERNAL STEEL] will be in
 Velhart's pocket soon enough.

 As you can see, at the first fork, a [WIND FRAGMENT] is found way at the end
 of the south fork, while the east one goes a lot farther (and you have to go
 this way, natch). Theo will find a monster friend down that way, who beckons
 him to go the left path. Take the right hole's vine and follow after the li'l
 bugger.

 In the room directly after where the monster first appeared, take the vine
 (using the option) and backtrack one area, and go down the right side with
 that vine. It leads to a monster room with a [WIND FRAGMENT], [TEM'S ROOT],
 [TEM'S ROOT], and [WIND FRAGMENT]! And, after you're done, you can simply
 take the root connecting to that room and bring it back to the three-way
 fork. Go down the left hole with it and the right hole's vine.

 After going a ways down, eventually we'll reach a path that goes directly
 south to a monster room. South of there is a two-hole place. Take the east
 vine down to a [WISDOM TABLET], [EARTH FRAGMENT], and [WISDOM TABLET] 'fore
 climbing right back up and taking the vine. Plug it in the west hole and
 go down.

 Follow it until you get to the last treasure room, with a [PHALANX], [WISDOM
 TABLET], [GREEN TALISMAN], [ROCKET BOMB], and [EARTH FRAGMENT] inside. Climb
 back up and take that rope (after fighting the monsters). Climb back up and
 return to areas prior, to the three-exit place -- go north to the next 3-exit
 place. This time, take the left rope __UP__ and place the rope you took a bit
 ago into the slot. Take the rope you just climbed up and go down the western
 hole to where the save point/heal point is. Continue along until you've gotta
 clean up an infestation...

 I wonder how they came up with this name? A flurry of Excitement, Card Field,
 and Magic Shield will help makes it damage-dealing horrible. It uses Genesis
 X to switch its tail and head, which isn't much of a tactic. Raging Blaze is
 its other attack (fire-attribute) on the allies around it. Lame! Anyway, once
 1000 damage has been done, the battle ends.

 This thing keeps growing a new head! After regrouping, the little monster
 that Theo saved wants to be turned into a card to help. It changes the boss
 into a large scorpion-lookin' thing.

 Excitement + Card Field + Magic Shield to start off. It uses "Killing Mist"
 to inflict damage and poison on those around it, and "Fascination Laser" is
 not such a bad attack either. After enough damage, it uses "Movement" to
 go to another location on the field. It's got about ~1400 HP to sift thru,
 but Impulse Bomb can deplete 200+ per hit and some physical attacks can do
 about that. Not that hard, but it's fun to have a boss fight once in awhile.

 After some planting scenes, the [ETERNAL TREE BRANCH] is received! This'll
 rack up another job complete!

 Beware of Vampire Bats, which can use "Restore" in the same way Alec can use
 Resurrection...only they can bring back multiple allies at once (max: 2/per).
 It also seems they can only revive their own kind, too, for reference.

 Anyway, this place is mostly full of "slide" puzzles. This means that Alec
 will have to step on some ice and glide around until he comes to the exit.
 The first room is awfully simple but it gets a little harder later on.

 tile, slide north -> west -> north -> east to the [WATER FRAGMENT]. From

 A little ways ahead is the next puzzle by a save and heal point.

|SLIDE PUZZLE #3: There are multiple treasure chests here. Here's how to get
 them.

  • Blue Talisman ---> Stand south of save point and go south -> east ->
                       south -> west -> north -> west -> south.

  • Blue Talisman  --> By the save points, stand on the SW corner of the dry
                       land. Walk one space east then glide south -> west.

  • Water Fragment --> Stand left of the save point and walk west until you
                       slide to the opposite solid ground. You can see a rock
                       just south; go to it. Then, it's east -> south -> west.

  • Raila's Mirror --> After getting the Water Fragment (above), simply go
                       south to solid ground. Whee!

  • Water Fragment --> Stand left of save point and glide west to the next
                       segment of dry ground. Stand in the SE corner and walk
                       one space west before gliding south. Go west -> south
                       -> east -> north.

  • EXIT THIS PLACE -> Stand left of save point and glide west. That's all...

 Defeat the Dark Fogs/Water Dragons and continue  to the Eternal Ice Wall
 that shields the booty. No one can think of a way to get through, however,
 so it's back to Rusaht's institute. Salubari says the "Giga Plasma" spell
 can break the ice wall, but few people can learn it because they have to
 defeat all the elemental wizards and learn the essences of the elements!
 Sounds like a long, boring run-around quest... =(

 Only four are currently known, though Master Harzan of Amaidar Temple could
 probably shed some light on their whereabouts. Salubari summons the four
 wizards, and Harzan reveals the names of the other Light/Dark wizards --
 the top of Amaidar Mountain. Talk to the Chun-Li-lookin' woman at the cafe
 to learn Sania's at the library; after, return to the temple and get Iga's
 message to leave for the mountaintop. Tikva trains to become the Light/Dark
 Wizard, so return to Rusaht and challenge the wizards in the training hall.

                                      .---------.---------.

| Lv. 69 Breeze                       | 172/999 |  22/102 |
'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 This is a Marsia-only battle, but even with their horrible ATK there's a
 huge DEF to overcome. If you've been using her a lot up to this time, all
 you have to do is use the opposing attribute attacks on each wizard. It'll
 probably fry 'em easily. On the other hand, if you haven't been using Marsia
 up to this time (she was Lv. 20 for me), you may have your work cut out for
 you. I suggest artificial DEF/MAG raising with the buff items, and equipping
 the Delight Heal (+10 HP/MP per turn) and Flay's Crest (-50% attribute dmg)
 for easier effect. I beat them all at Lv. 20 by using two Rocket Bombs -- it
 takes over 100+ off each, and since they clump together, it's an easy way
 out for those low-levelled people. For me it went:

 TURN 1: Hit with Air Blast + Heat Shell; Marsia retreats SE and heals up.
 TURN 2: Hit with Air Blast; Marsia uses a Rocket Bomb
 TURN 3: Hit with Air Blast/Heat Shell/Land Ax; Marsia kills three wizard
 TURN 4: Hit with Water Crumble; Marsia uses another bomb and kills Ovel.

 Beat 'em at Lv. 24. ^___^  Now's the time for the Light/Dark Wizard....your
 old friend Tikva! Marsia can't go &
 save in-between, either,  y'know...  .---------.---------.
                                      |  HP/MP  | ATK/DEF |
.-------------------------------------+---------+---------+------------------.
| Lv. 51 Tikva                        | 294/999 |  37/95  | DIFFICULTY: 3/10 |
'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 A high-levelled Marsia can dominate this easily, but for those who aren't
 up to par with Tikva, do the Flay's Crest/Delight Heel accessories to cover
 her back. Don't bother using light/dark attacks on Tikva because that's his
 specialty. You can switch out the Delight Heel for a Light/Dark Amulet, also,
 since he only has two attacks. Personally, I just threw a bunch of bombs at
 him to win 'cause my Marsia's too low a level to deal real damage with her
 Gaia Magic. Oh well, whatever gets y'through...

 After defeating Tikva, Marsia learns the Giga Plasma spell. Rest/save at
 Rusaht and return to the Eternal Ice Wall (no backtracking necessary). Let's
 stick it to the boss...
                                      .---------.---------.
                                      |  HP/MP  | ATK/DEF |
.-------------------------------------+---------+---------+------------------.
| Lv. ?? Cliff Gigantor               | ???/??? | ???/??? | DIFFICULTY: 3/10 |
| Lv. 41 Ice Golem (x?)               | 214/80  | 183/46  |------------------'
'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 As per usual, Excitement/Card Field/Magic Shield at the start, while Velhart
 uses MUSOU I/II/III. Ice Masher can do 150+ to a single target, so all the
 more reason for attribute-reduction accessories and spells. It uses Icicle
 Cage on those in close-range, which does poor damage if Magic Shield is in
 effect (~30); Prism Wall, however, summons up to three Ice Golems into the
 battle...all the more reason to bumrush the thing and go as far north as
 possible. The summoned golems appear way in the south. ^___^ Cliff Gigantor
 has about 1000 HP, so it's not an insurmountable value.

 Once we've burned the icy fiend, the [ETERNAL ICE] is claimed! Job complete!

 Visit any guild to learn the Guildmaster's got more information for Alec.
 This also opens up a few more jobs...

  • Job 97 - Protect Raia During the Show! ---> [JB97] -> Itio

 Talk with the Guildmaster in Paltos to learn the Eternal Flame is somewhere
 in South Sularto...maybe? It unlocks:

  • Job 98 - Get the Eternal Flame! ----------> [JB98] -> Testa

 In the course of taking this job, and recovering Chongara's memory, he will
 recall the location of the Eternal Flame -- the Volcano Cave, a smoking mount
 just north of Gislem. Partycrashin' in the ashen wasteland, yo!

 Dario will think of a way to help Cheryl's gun freeze the lava: combine a
 Rocket Bomb, Grenade Launcher, Ice Saber, and Calm Nut! Go to Gislem's Danger
 Dome to meet Gudan and his gang. He drops the thing that Dwarf Behemoths in
 Kutao Temple will have some (note: to unlock Kutao Temple, you must accept to
 do Job #72). Here's a map of the place:

 See the orange room just right of the "B1" marking? That's where those Dwarf
 Behemoths can be found.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 These little buggers have great elemental defense, so use specialty attacks
 like Brain Blast or Divide to take them out easily. Fatal Dagger also works
 for whittling down their HP, especially if you want to Cardish one. Their
 "Heavy Bell" attack is pretty crappy, and you can paralyze them if needed.

 A [CALM NUT] is acquired after battle (always), and back at Weapon Society,
 the fabulous, glorious, incrediblelastic [STONE GUN] is created! Next-door,
 Elnan will have a [LAMP] that can carry the Eternal Flame somehow. Clutz Lutz
 puts it in his charge... -___-

 Return to the Lake of Fire (no backtracking necessary) and the mysterious
 flying object reveals itself as Diekbeck! There's a minigame where Cheryl
 prevents lava from falling on Lutz by using the Stone Gun to stop it cold
 in its tracks. Decide where Lutz ascends with the d-pad and press "X" to
 start the ascent. She can only make lava blocks in the wall's vertical gaps,
 however. If the target is green, Cheryl can't shoot there. Oh, and fire with
 "X" also. It'll stop the lava for one round. Don't worry if you mess up --
 there is infinite retries. ^____^ HINT: You can see where the lava will begin
 at the very top, and it always flows down; however, it always takes the turns
 when available, so that's how it makes its weird pattern. Here's how I did
 it:

 Slot #3 (third from left out of 4 available) -> shoot gap right next to Lutz
 
 Turn 2: Shoot gap right left of Lutz
 Turn 3: Shoot gap just NE of Lutz
 Turn 4: Shoot any gap 'cause the lava won't get Lutz anyway

 On the fifth turn, Lutz will make it up and capture the [ETERNAL FLAME]! The
 job is now complete! Diekbeck also gives Theo his monster card as a farewell
 gift...

 #############################################################################

 The first floor has three exits. From left to right: Dorvan Family shops +
 save point, elevator to 2F, repeating monster room. You can now buy some good
 weapons from Dorvan (finally!) but ultimately it's going up the elevator. The
 "Feral Trial" will start there.

[2F]

 The monsters here are pieces-o'-crap bad, such as Lv. 1 Opossums and Lv. 18
 Stone Tortoises. A few Lv. 40+ monsters are thrown into the mix, like Flash
 Hiders and Attack Dogs, but there's only five in all -- romp! This entire
 challenge is basically a run through repeating rooms like in Kutao Temple.

 To get through this floor, go (from Feral Trial):

 01) East
 02) North
 03) West
 04) North [to Savepoint]
 05) North 
 06) East
 07) East
 08) South
 09) East

 The last room is the Dragon Trial, where there are three Altima [Lv. 75] foes
 to strike down. They're the only new monsters out of all the rest, but still
 shouldn't prove to be a challenge if you're adequately levelled. So much for
 them being incredibly friendly, huh? Even with 700+ HP, Fatal Dagger still
 makes it a fun fight. Just be sure to use Magic Shield since they know all
 of the ____-attribute breath skills, and also resist all elements (this means
 that Elc will be doing lots of 1-damage hits).

[3F]

 Pretty straightforward, and you can avoid all monsters if you want. In the
 hallway with the six exits (5 new), there are four on pointing north. The
 middle two contain treasures, the rightmost another treasure (and monsters),
 and the leftmost the way out. The SWmost exit is a dead-end and doesn't need
 to be taken. So, go the NWmost and continue on your merry way. Eventually
 you get to the elevator room, and an antechamber has a teleport, too. This
 opens up a warp on the 1F right by the inn, for easier access.

[4F]

 Academy 3 Fighters [Lv. 49, 176/304] are new but still are pretty crappy if
 you're at a higher level than them...and you should be. A boss battle is up
 after the 1st room...
                                      .---------.---------.
                                      |  HP/MP  | ATK/DEF |
.-------------------------------------+---------+---------+------------------.
| Lv. ?? Galdo                        | ???/??? | ???/??? | DIFFICULTY: 2/10 |
| Lv. 49 Academy 3 Fighter (x4)       | 176/320 | 160/24  |------------------'
'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Excitement/Strike Power at the beginning and try to get a few potshots
 in before Galdo uses Agility Bellow (increases self AGL). Destroy all of
 the minions if you're planing on using elemental attacks, because they'll
 use Magic Shield to make that less effective. If Theo's along, Card Field
 to pre-empt the boss' Wild Shout, that increases his own ATK. Still, it's
 borderline ridiculous how easily this can be to win. Galdo uses a few range
 attacks to attack those around him but it's single-digit nonsense by now...
 He's got about 2200 HP to slice off.

 ---

 The following room has a [GOD'S NECTAR FRUIT] to take, and from there it's
 all monster fights in rooms with three exits. Some have repeating paths that
 reset you to the start, so we'll want to avoid them. From the first monster
 room past Galdo, go:

 Leftmost -> Leftmost -> Leftmost -> Rightmost -> Middle

 This warps to the next floor.

[5F]

 In the second room past the elevator, look carefully for a [LIGHT SABER] that
 is obscured by the wall. It heals 20 HP per turn, and is better than anything
 Alec has right now, I'm sure.

 Anyway, in the long eight-exit hallway (7 new), all lead to treasure rooms
 except for the two rightmost. The SEmost exit is the way to go after looting
 the caches, and leads to the exit, as well as a warp back to the 1F if you
 need to save/rest up.

[6F]

 Collect the four treasures here and continue north to find that Seville has
 been dispatched at long last...
                                      .---------.---------.
                                      |  HP/MP  | ATK/DEF |
.-------------------------------------+---------+---------+------------------.
| Lv. ?? Seville                      | ???/??? | ???/??? | DIFFICULTY: 6/10 |
| Lv. 46 Wyvern Slave (x2)            | 409/120 | 208/24  |------------------'
| Lv. 23 Academy 1 Fighter (x2)       | 105/00  |  75/12  |
'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Use Excitement/Strike Power to give the offense a sharper edge, and have
 Velhart use MUSOU III. Magic Shield will also help a little, and if Theo's
 with, use Card Field because the "White Shadow Duel Blade" can do 200+ in a
 straight line...so don't stand in a straight line during this battle. Storm
 Dance can do ~300 to a single target, which can only be stomached a few
 times before someone's KO'd. He usually switches off, though, and uses Break
 Slide to better effect than Galdo as well (~200 around him). Basically, Alec
 should be on Cure duty, or someone can throw Potent Herbs in the mix as well.
 This might be one of the few battles that poses some sort of challenge, and
 if you don't have a Romancing Stone, it can definitely be a trial. Don't
 forget about Omega BUSTER, though -- the sword skill can inflict a heckuvalot
 of damage if you get the chance. If you surround Seville, he's more likely to
 use "Psycho Blade," which is a weaker AoE attack around him. But anyway, the
 Omega BUSTER attack basically mauled this guy, as opposed to Alec healing
 every round and people doing crappy damage. Seville's got decent physical
 defense, so don't think this is going to be a walk in the park. In all, he's
 got about 1500 HP, a bit less than Galdo.

 One he's a corpse, head north to the save/heal points and a [WISDOM TABLET].
 North a few rooms, the Inner Sanctum can be found. This is where the struggle
 to contain the Dark One fails, and the struggle to contain it begins... Hurry
 'cause there ain't much time!

 The targets are the six (6) eyeballs on the floor, but don't use physical
 attacks or they'll immediately counterattack (100% of the time) for about
 120 damage. Use Excitement/Card Field to help out, and use Magic Shield to
 make the "Flashpoint" attack do less damaeg. It's fire-attribute and hits all
 allies on the field, sadly... Either way, nothing to worry about if you
 can take care of your party upkeep. The eyeballs have about 700 HP, so this
 isn't such a big deal if you can break out a couple Omega BUSTERs.

 When a couple eyes are dead, the "Water Torture" attack kicks in -- it's of
 the element it seems like. Magic Shield reduces it to a mere ~100 damage or
 so. "Evil Vortex" can inflict about ~175 on everyone, but it's used rarely.
 I actually ended up beating this entire battle with three people (Anrietta
 got set in the battle by default, since Elc wasn't usable) and still managed
 to go through without too much hassle. Just make sure to travel in groups to
 make Cure more effective.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 Only one target this time. Excitement/Card Field ASAP, and use Magic Shield
 when possible. The baddie uses "Vice Crop" to attack all those allies within
 a close range, and since HP values are the same as the previous battle, keep
 a close eye on such things! "Dark Flash" does about ~150 to all allies, but
 isn't "deadly" in the same way instant death is deadly. =)

 Chaotic Impulse often does single-digits, and if you gather in front of the
 thing, you can bait into much use. Either way, Impulse Bombs & Omega BUSTERs
 will make this battle surprisingly uneventful, and this dark lord seems to be
 a little rusty from its long confinement... NOTE: Fatal Dagger can take off
 300+ ALSO!

 The one change-up is the "Advent of Demise" HP-absorb attack, which can take
 back over 2800+ HP! If Fatal Dagger + Omega Buster is doing 1000+ damage per
 turn (sometimes it can, sometimes it can't), this isn't much of a problem...
 it's just an annoyance. Each time he uses it, he absorbs less and less, so
 on the 2nd time, he gets about 1700; 3rd time he uses it, he gets about 1300,
 etc.

 Overall, I'd say the guy has about 10000 HP max, but you'll have to do more
 than that because he heals it back. Kinda lame, but at least there's some
 sort of challenge, yeah?

   And that's the last boss battle in the game! Enjoy the ending scenes!

 Jobs are the essence of ATL3, and are heavily relied upon, both for developing
 the story and gaining items/goz. They can be either puzzle-solving, battle-
 -oriented, dialogue missions, or a combination of each. Most have no bearing
 on the story, but storyline jobs progress the plot and have to be done whether
 one likes it or not. [NOTE: Sometimes storyline jobs tear Alec away from the
 local ones he's working on. Make sure to complete all low-level jobs before
 continuing!]

  GUILD : Location of the guild
  CLIENT: Client who is petitioning this job
  MERITS: # of merits received for job complete
  REWARD: Amount of $$ (goz) received for job complete
  UNLOCK: Conditions that will make this job available

 I will also note that, depending on how Alec and his team perform during the
 job, the merits/reward can decrease. "Job Failed" rankings earn nothing,
 while "Job Incomplete" offers few in either of the two said portions. It's
 always best to save before attempting a job, particularly those that come w/
 a warning from the local guildmaster.

 Make sure you have all the supplies you need (equipment, Herbs) before setting
 foot into here, 'cause you can't leave once you go in. Two screens in behind
 the waterfall, there's a stall battle.

.------------------.--------.--------.----------.----------.------------------.
| Lv. 5 Slime      | HP: 15 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:  10 | DIFFICULTY: 2/10 |
| Lv. 2 Cave Bat   | HP: 15 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:   5 |------------------' 
| Lv. 5 Sidewinder | HP: 26 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:   6 |
'------------------'--------'--------'----------'----------'

 If your characters are LV5+, this will be gravy. Take out the slime and cave
 bats (two each) first since they'll go down in one hit, and tango with the
 Sidewinder snake when it nears. It can do a bit of damage, but nothing that
 Cure can't smooth over. Use the various rocks and obstacles to prevent foes
 from flanking you or snippin' at your aft side. Cave Bats heal themselves if
 they land an attack (~10 HP), so don't let 'em wander around ciphoning health.

 After battle, take the east enemy-less passage to two treasure chests. One's
 got an [IRON KNIFE] and the other contains an [HERB]. Note that you'll have to
 fight the same enemy group above once more, this time from the eastern side of
 the room! Continue north from that first fork and get the [PALO NUT] stuck in
 a rocky chest. This leads to a second battlesite.

.------------------.--------.--------.----------.----------.------------------.
| Lv. 2 Cave Bat   | HP: 15 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:   5 | DIFFICULTY: 2/10 | 
| Lv. 5 Sidewinder | HP: 26 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:   6 |------------------'
'------------------'--------'--------'----------'----------'

 Two of each this time, with the Sidewinders nearest. One long-range attack of
 throwing knives lets Alec finish 'em off, so there's no xtreme strategy one's
 to employ here. You can probably finish off the cave bats with a single
 counterattack. Just defend the first turn (idle) and don't bother advancing to
 the southern portion of the room because stalagmites and such block the clear
 path. One weird thing I noticed is that if a cave bat absorbs HP and someone
 counters it, even if it should be dead, that HP it absorbed keeps it alive...

 Heal up and continue south to the Trial Cave's B2-A floor.

.------------------.--------.--------.----------.----------.------------------.
| Lv. 2 Cave Bat   | HP: 15 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:   5 | DIFFICULTY: 1/10 | 
| Lv. 5 Sidewinder | HP: 26 | MP:  0 | ATK:  30 | DEF:   6 |------------------'
'------------------'--------'--------'----------'----------'

 Same as before except with one less Sidewinder. Take that out first and bash
 some skulls on the bats. It's easy fights like that make me not want to stick
 in a strategy...

 Continue north to an west/east fork. Go east first and into the room with the
 large pit in the middle. Get an [IRON SPEAR] for your troubles and continue
 north until another fork is found. Continue east into a room with four chests!
 Two [SHIMMER STONE]s, a [FALCON STATUE], and a [PALO NUT] can be found within.
 Back at the fork, take the other one that curves north and back west. This'll
 lead to a room with two savepoints. The red one refills HP/MP and the other's
 a normal one. Before you continue, take the southern exit here until it comes
 to another room...

.------------------.--------.--------.----------.----------.------------------.
| Lv. 6 Ogre       | HP: 40 | MP: 60 | ATK:  39 | DEF:   5 | DIFFICULTY: 3/10 |
| Lv. 5 Sidewinder | HP: 26 | MP: -- | ATK:  30 | DEF:   6 |------------------'
'------------------'--------'--------'----------'----------'

 A little harder than normal with the inclusion of Ogres, who may cast a couple
 magic spells. They start near each other, so defeat the nearest Sidewinder to
 make sure they don't all tag-team someone at once. This is a good battle to
 use Force Ring in, although any enemies that get killed by other monsters do
 not give EXP to your allies. Ogres have horrible defense as you can see, so it
 isn't a trial to take one down each round. Lutz can use 'Steal' (learned at
 LV7) to take Herbs from the big pink monsters if he needs to.

 Take the [SHIMMER STONE] from the chest and backtrack to the savepoints. Raid
 the chest for another [SHIMMER STONE]. Inspect the large crystalline door by
 here and choose to push on it, which opens the thing. Inside is the crystal's
 keeper, Tengaron...who's also the same guy who was at the guild earlier...

.------------------.---------.--------.---------.----------.------------------.
| Lv. 8 Tengaron   | HP: 155 | MP: 50 | ATK: 40 | DEF:   7 | DIFFICULTY: 4/10 |
'------------------'---------'--------'---------'----------'------------------'

 A boss who uses guns and doesn't summon minions to do his legwork -- I like
 this dude's style! His attack can do roughly about the same as an Ogre (~20),
 but he's got a range of two so he'll try not to let anyone counterattack him
 if possible. Don't stand next to each other since this means he can obviously
 attack two people at once! Use Alec's Cure to get through, and have Lutz try
 to steal a 'Fur Cape' from him. You should have plenty of opportunities if the
 average party level is 8+. Should you find this hard, fight the ogre battles
 and return to the healing point repeatedly.

 Tengaron allows the party to get a [CRYSTAL FRAGMENT] from this most holiest
 of holy sites (to him), so it's time to scoot back to Itio. Everyone leaves
 the cave automatically, anyway.

 he is away on business. See Lendal at his home in Itio for details."

  MERITS: 6
  REWARD: 80G

 Lendal's house is in Itio, southwest of the guild headquarters. The game'll
 direct you to it, but if you forget, it's the one with a pink mailbox. There,
 it seems that his crates have to be guarded since they're full of valuable &
 rare plantlife...and it's babysitting time for his kid, Kobal! After a failed
 drug dropoff (LOL?), there will be some mice in the crates. Time for a.......
 MINIGAME!

 The mice will jump around the four boxes here. Use the x-button in front of
 the crate where it was last to catch it. You need to catch all three mice in
 the space of 5 tries to get the best outcome for this job. It's rather easy,
 as long as you can follow the last box with your eyes (this isn't similar to
 whack-a-mole or anything). LOL @ "Grab that freak!" If you accomplish this
 job to a satisfactory degree, Lendal gives Alec an [HERB] as thanks.

JOB 03 - SUPPLIES FOR HUNTER JAY                                         [JB03]
===============================================================================

 "We have received an emergency request for supplies from the Wanted Monster
 Specialist known as Jay. He is at Kiska Marsh or the Lukae Riverbank."

  GUILD : Itio
  CLIENT: Itio Guild
  MERITS: 6
  REWARD: 100G
  UNLOCK: ---

 Jay needs some supplies, being a Vigor Seed and Adventurer Vest. The cost of
 the items is worked into the bounty, which translates to the player's got to
 shell out the cash to get 'em him/herself. The guildmaster gives [120G] over
 so Alec doesn't "stream in his shorts" though. Go to the shop in the SE part
 of town and buy said items; if you already have one or both, then you won't
 need to purchase them.

 He can be found at Lukae Riverbank, but you can pick either. If you visit
 him at Kiska Marsh, he won't be there and you'll have to tango with some of
 the local wildlife.

.------------------.--------.--------.----------.----------.------------------.
|Lv. 7 Pit Scorpion| HP: 11 | MP: 20 | ATK:  38 | DEF:  15 | DIFFICULTY: 2/10 |
|Lv. 5 Slime       | HP: 15 | MP: -- | ATK:  30 | DEF:  10 |------------------'
'------------------'--------'--------'----------'----------'

 The Pit Scorpion's got great defense, so make sure Alec takes that one out if
 you want it to go down in one hit. The Slimes are like jell-o and anything'll
 cut 'em up. Yawn? Just remember that Pit Scorpions can use an attack that can
 inflict 'Gravity' status.

 The Vacant House is right next door to the guild (spooky!) and looks all run
 down and such. It turns out that the 'blood-red eyes and fangs' the client's
 seeing through the floorboards are not demonic creatures, but mice! Yeah, it
 is another mice job. There are seven holes and seven boxes to plug them up
 with...but you can only PUSH boxes, meaning this can mess up pretty easily.
 If you mess up, use the triangle button and 'Reset' the room to its default
 formation. Here's the order you should plug the holes.

 01) From where Alec starts, push box he's looking at north.
 02) Push box that was right beside that one left until it's on HOLE #1
 03) On the right side of room push opened crate north and east onto HOLE #2
 04) By staircase, push the box left onto HOLE #3
 05) Push the box by the counter south once, then one right of there south to
     where the entrance is. Push it right onto HOLE #4
 06) Push the box NW of the large table north and left onto HOLE #5
 07) Push the box north of the large table west once, north as far as it will
     go, and right once onto HOLE #6
 08) The only box left should be near the left counter. Push it south once and
     east until it's against the wall. Push it north onto HOLE #7.

 Nate comes downstairs after and the job is el completo.

 Return to the center (NE corner of town, remember?) and see what's up with the

 the mountains north of Vernica who may take it in, and recommends talking to
 the elder for details. This Vernica is a town north of Renn, so head there.

 At the northern end of town's the elder's house, near a large barn. Apparently
 a woman named Lieza (ring a bell, ATL2 fans?) can take care of them, up past
 Astorny Bridge. Head towards the large house with a windmill and enter the
 bridge area to find Lieza's pet monster (Paundit) guarding the bridge and not
 letting anyone across. The village elder suggests returning to Vernica to get
 an item that may calm it. 

 Re-enter the elder's house to learn about Hannah, someone who lives nearby.
 Enter the house with all the flowers by it to learn a Calm Nut may help make
 Paundit shut his mouth (:p). Hannah apparently planted some at Noalis Forest,
 but Crimson Rocs ate 'em all. Before going to Noalis Forest near Renn, raid
 the storehouse near the elder's digs for a [MAGIC POWER NUT], [MAGIC SPRIG],
 [RED TALISMAN], and a [BLUE TALISMAN].

 There's five of these suckers, and you saw the carnage they can do when they
 get the chance. Pre-empt their own Silent-inflicting skill with Alec's Silent
 ability, because not being able to cure sucks hard here. Use Alec mainly to
 Cure and have Theo use a summon to even the playing field. This sets up Knife
 Rain to do potentially multiple KO's in one turn. Don't wait for counterattack
 kills, or you may get screwed (they do seem to use Hypno Eyes a lot, though,
 so you may get lucky). Cardish also works for getting rid of some of these
 fools.

 Everyone finds a [CALM NUT] afterwards! Return to Astorny Bridge and feed the
 depressant to Paundit, which lets everyone proceed to Lieza's Ranch. She'll
 say the thing's lonely and agree to take care of it. Easy as pie!

 Don't forget to get the [AMAZING HERB], [RECOVERY TONIC], [SOOTHING RING],
 [LIGHT ALLOY], and [MAGIC APPLE] in her storehouse.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 The Chief ends up leaving his men to do the footwork, and they block the
 west end of the bridge...this'll be a close-range fight. They have a large
 gun radius and can hit multiple targets at once AND you can't counter their
 gunshot blasts, even at one panel away. They're also immune to Silence and
 Confusion (but don't hesitate to use Force Ring for the widespread damage if
 you need to). They mostly use physical attacks, but the red-colored bandits
 can use 'Circle Riot' to hit allies around them in a large radius for about
 35 HP. I've found the best way is to use Cardish on an Ogre at Noalis Forest
 and summon it in battle, doing about 40 damage to all allies. Since they'll
 clump together on the second turn, you can take out the rest with Knife Rain
 or similar pretty easily. Definitely use this strategy if you're having some
 trouble!!! [NOTE: The green bandits can only shoot in a straight fashion.]

 After kicking the bandits' rumps, they leave after some lame philsophizing.

 With a high defense, their attacks will be pullin' up single digits so this
 won't be much of a hassle. Without Card Field, though...

 Job complete once they're finished, since the girl promises she doesn't want

 for identification. Finding a route to North Sularto is part of the job."

  GUILD : Renn
  CLIENT: Shopkeeper Baguda
  MERITS: 9
  REWARD: 220G
  UNLOCK: Complete any two of the following: Job #16, 17, 18, 19

 As the guildmaster says, this job will take everyone away for awhile and they
 won't be able to accept any other tasks until it's done...meaning do all of
 the jobs here with this one being last. Be prepared as you take it!

 ---

 Talk to Baguba in the shop to get the [MYSTERIOUS OBJECT]. Apparently, the
 item society is in...Society Village. Return to the docks to learn that this
 place is on the same continent as Forestamore but can't be reached by land or
 sea. Theo comes up with the cockamammy idea to use a flying monster's card to
 get over the mountains; this can be found at the Monster Society in town.

 The chief won't give the card over unless three other cards are traded, being
 a Hemo-ji, Dandelion, and Slime. However, you can't go back to the previous
 continent to get the cards, so you'll have to do some in-town trading.

  • WILD HEMO-JI - The girl (Len) inside of the Monster Society will trade
                   this card for a Crimson Roc. Cardish one in Noalis Forest
                   and trade it back.
  • DANDELION    - Talk to Hannah in Vernica, then go to the Great Scar and
                   Cardish one. Be careful; it's Lv. 19! Use Force Ring to
                   lower its HP and then turn it into a card. =p
  • SLIME        - The sailor at the docks has the Slime card but wants the
                   party to give him a hand before they get it. Loading some
                   clay jars and wooden boxes will occur -- Alec will have to
                   count how many are loaded. If you're bad at remembering, 
                   feel free to tally 'em up (I got 6 of each). He gives over
                   the card when you do it correctly.

 When all are collected, return to the Renn Monster Society building and get
 the Flying Fire card. At Lieza's ranch, she says this is a one-way trip; if
 you have her summon it, it automatically takes everyone to Galecki Falls.

 After finally reaching the Item Society in Society Village, the job will be
 complete.

  GUILD : Gislem
  CLIENT: Innkeeper Nale
  MERITS: 6
  REWARD: 240G
  UNLOCK: Complete Job #21 - "Gislem Census"

 Talk to the innkeeper to learn a woman keeps talking about her death, and
 some people just want her to get out of the place for a little while. She
 wants Theo to kill her with his spear (o_O); he refuses, natch. Apparently
 a memento of her son Peter was stolen recently, and it's the last thing that
 connects her to him. Let's beat up some thugs and reclaim it...it being a
 spear...

 The guy says that stolen stuff ends up in the Danger Dome, so head down over
 there (in the SE part of town, which you're already aware of). A guy there
 will have the spear that was stolen, so wager something rather useless by
 this point (I used a Bronze Sword) before the fight begins. Theo is the only
 applicable fighter here.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 Theo's stats aren't exactly top-notch, but Card Field can boost his defense
 so that regular attacks do lame single-digit damage. The hunter's Spear Toss
 ability can do ~17 if Theo has 48 defense. Use a powerful offensive summon
 card such as 'Wild Dog' to deal your damage, rather than using physical
 attacks which can be countered since he's got a spear. Also make sure to back
 up against the railing so the hunter can't jab Theo from behind. Make sure
 you use Card Field or you'll find yourself in a bad position!

 After winning, you'll receive the [SILVER SARISSA] and automatically deliver
 it to the woman. However, even though she accepts the spear, everyone thinks
 it's NOT the right one. So, let's search for the real one then... This time,
 go to the pub near the guild. A guy there will have the spear, and wants you
 to fight him in the Danger Dome to get it back. Theo'll be the one fighting
 alone, again (I bet another Bronze Sword...lol?).

                                      .---------.---------.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 He'll probably get first strike and do ~30dmg, but follow the same path as
 you did before: Card Field -> offensive card summon. When you run out of
 those, use physical attacks. Note that if you're having trouble healing, you
 can create Amazing Herbs that refill 100 HP in Society Village by mixing two
 regular Herbs. If you can't manage that, back up against the fence to prevent
 back attacks (the corner works best).

 Once he's defeated, you'll get Peter's real spear. Rush back to the suicidal
 woman (why give her a weapon in the first place?) and she'll brighten up at
 the site of the thing. Job completeeee! Plus, she gives the [SILVER SARISSA]
 back to Theo as a present. Yay!

 Take a brisk job over to Society Village -- the power plant is the largest

 is straight out of a Scooby Doo cartoon) is the culprit behind the would-be
 injuries. Up on the 2F, talk to the uncooperative chief; later, some men'll
 try to break in. Alec goes to protect the chief while Lutz/Theo do the task
 of pestering the intruders downstairs.
                                      .---------.---------.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 Time to annoy Noye! A similarly-leveled Alec will have 200+ HP, and with the
 Cure ability, he should have no problem with his HP. Noye can strike for apx.
 30 damage (on my Lv. 20 Alec), while his 'Sword Dance' maneuver can do about
 45 damage. Cast Silent to prevent that pesky maneuver and try to attack with
 Force Ring, since Noye can counterattack...and probably will. This joker can
 be confused as well, so make sure to inflict it if possible. Remember: she
 who is confused may waste her turn doing nothing, plus her counterattacking
 ratio seems to go down (if he can do it at all!). Seriously, using Force Ring
 is a ticket to victory here.

 Immediately following, the Vice-chief says he'll put in another request if
 he thinks something's up. Job complete!

 The Sabi Wilds are southwest of the Ruined City, and there you'll find some

 Forestamore, we'll never know...nevertheless, they challenge Alec's crew to
 a contest: the person who defeats the most monsters fastest wins (Alec wins
 in the event there's a tie, also). Defeat the monsters in four rounds or less

| Lv. 17 Desert Devil (x4)            |  22/40  |  71/26  |------------------'
'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 The easiest way to defeat these guys within four turns is to use Theo's
 card summons, which will take out the sidewinders (who are furthest away to
 boot) and Cardish monsters that remain. Use Force Ring on the remaining
 Desert Devils since their high attack power means, if they attack a comrade,
 it's almost a certain KO. And, of course, Alec should be able to OHKO any
 Desert Devil by himself if he's properly equipped and Lv. 20+.

 Job complete if the outcome's favorable!

 O'er at the falls, Dorvan says this drink will "power up" whoever drinks it,
 but he needs to see it in action first. So, guinea pig time! Unfortunately,
 the 'tremendous difference' in strength has a horrible side effect: HP and MP

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 Since HP/MP is depleting each active turn, you'll want to make the most of
 what you have so you can finish this quickly. Use Card Field and Silent to
 help tip the odds in your favor, then use Force Ring to inflict confusion.
 Remember that enemies under confused status may 'forget' to do anything in
 a turn, which helps since physical attacks incurred can do 50+! If you're
 lucky, the enemy will attack its comrade and OHKO it by doing 80+ damage!
 Use Amazing Herbs and Alec's Cure ability to heal en masse, and this may not
 be such a problem in the latter turns. Oh, and you can use Cardish to help
 take some of the load off. Yay!

 To show there's no hard feelings, Dorvan attempts to sell the party a bunch
 of junk weapons, Apple Extract, and some other crap for 100G. If you have 
 the cash to spare, go for it; you can resell them for more goz later on.
 All in all, you get a [STEEL SWORD], [IRON SWORD], [BRONZE SWORD], [BLUNT
 SWORD], [STEEL SPEAR], [IRON SPEAR], [WARPED SPEAR], [STEEL SCALPEL], [IRON
 KNIFE], [BRONZE DAGGER], [BUTCHER KNIFE], and [APPLE EXTRACT]. All pretty
 useless, but hey, it /is/ a good deal.

 I suggest buying it which may influence whether or not you get a job complete

  UNLOCK: Complete Job #27 - "Get A Valuable Synthesis Item"

 Portia is waiting in front of the Item Society building, and says the tourney
 will involve weapons synthesis. You can 'cram a little' before the meet's to
 begin if you want; go to the Weapon Society's synthesis book if you want. It
 doesn't help much if you haven't been experimenting, though. Oh well -- I'm
 here to circumvent all that wasted time.

 Go to the tournament when ready (after a funny encounter with Ninja Spicy),
 which takes place at the Sabi Wilds. There are five item boxes lined up, and
 you have to pick the two correct ones to make the synthesis. The team that
 makes the correct synthesis item first wins. Here's how to proceed:

  • ROUND #1 - Alec should choose 'Shimmer Stone'
  • ROUND #2 - Alec should choose 'Fur Cape'
  • ROUND #3 - Alec should choose 'Mint'

 It's single-elimination for this tournament, so you have to win all rounds to
 get the job complete. Yay @ you!

 Heed the guildmaster's warning: you have to devote yourself to this mission
 fully...finish all other jobs before taking this one or they'll be aborted.
 Go to the Item Society at the 'Village to learn the scientists are planning
 on selling an item that has amazing powers. Take their [MAGIC APPLE] down
 to South Sularto and...well, it'll be fine. Talk to the Weapon Society rep
 next door to find out it's Cheryl! Finally we get that gun-wielding lass
 in our party......only you have to go find her at the Ruined City first.
 And there's a kidnapping party from The Academy who's got their sights on
 her skillz...

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 First things first, equip Cheryl with some better equipment and accessories;
 she's lacking in this department. Next, cast Silent on the robots to thwart
 any skills they have up their sleeves while using Card Field to buff DEF on
 everyone. Take 'em apart one by one, and take care of their T-shaped attack
 range. These guys carry Super Amazing Herbs, so try to steal one or two if
 you can (they're drops also). Too bad they can't be carded. =/

 The Secret Path Cheryl talks about is south of Gislem where that small cave
 is. Make sure you're fully-healed and have saved the game already before you
 go inside (see walkthrough for details on getting through). On the other
 side, enter Testa and its Item Society building. You'll learn that the place
 that sells the item needed didn't hawk it to the Society, and now they don't
 have the second component ready. GRR! Old Ali's shop in Pandira is the one
 that has it... Apparently that guy only listens to Tosh, the guy who's been
 protecting the town's water supply. The item needed is a Tem's Root. o_O
 [2500G] is given to buy the item.

 Enter Tosh's tent in the NE part of town for some events; he'll agree to
 assist in introducting them to Ali, or "Aliorihavelymasogarli" as his full
 name is. You'll need to know his full name since it's a point of honor to
 this stubborn dude. Good ol' Tosh (he's from ATL2 if you recall)! Detour
 to Pandira in the south and enter Ali's shop. Call him by his full name,
 buy the Tem's Root for 2500g, return to the Testa Item Society and create
 the [HYBRID MAG APPLE], then make a Ray Sword at the Testa Weapon Society!
 Go to the Bazaar Control Office and talk with the attendant, then go to Tosh
 Manor and get the lord of the house's permission to sell the Ray Sword in
 the bazaar. Job complete...finally. =/

 In order to do this job, after completing Job #32, you have to return to N.
 Sularto. Luckily, going through Secret Path is optional. Accept the job and
 return to the plant in Society Village; some other Hunters will have taken
 the job also. Huh? Well, two requests were put out so the jobs will have to
 be combined. Have Alec talk with the chief and after some goofy events, he
 will have to square off with Noye again.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 Cast Silent to prevent any annoying abilities Noye may have, first off. She
 will have a pretty lame physical attack (~15dmg) this time around, if you had
 upgraded in Testa (The Ray Sword helps, of course). Use Force Ring to inflict
 confusion on Noye, and put Alec up in one of the corners to prevent himself
 from flanking/back attacks. Shouldn't be too difficult at all.

 Everyone will learn some history about the plant's previous fashion, and just
 who the REAL culprit behind the accidents is. I won't spoil it for you, but
 it's pretty cool.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 All their attack stats are buffed, which is why gaining the upper hand is
 crucial before they can gang up on a single character. Use Card Field to
 buff defense, while Knife Rain/Force Ring is used on their starting pattern.
 It's quite possible you defeat them before they get a turn in; if you don't,
 this could get ugly. Any paralysis-inflicting cards you have would be useful
 here.

 The ending to this little tea party is quite nice... JOB COMPLETIO!

 You've had plenty of chances to make Emblem of Larks out of Rue's Medicines,

 Again, you're going for alacrity here, so kick out any powerful summons Theo
 has and use Force Ring/Napalm Bomb/Knife Rain to damage multiple targets. A

 Use Knife Rain/Force Ring right off the bat even if you can only hit two or
 so enemies, as we're going against the clock. If you have another Golem card
 to summon, do so; if not, hope that a confused enemy aids you by attacking
 its own comrade (which is a OHKO, of course). Finish it up in about 2 turns

 A rather boring battle, since you fought these as regular enemies coming to
 South Sularto. Try to Cardish a Golem or two if you can, since they're very
 powerful summons. Besides that, take out the Golem Master as quickly as you
 possibly can to avoid its "Land Ax" attack which can deal 30+ damage to a
 large area. There's no time limit on this battle, at least in relation to
 the bet, so wipe the floor with these nerds at your own pace.

 If you used less than eleven turns to get through all the battles, excluding
 the last one, you'll win the bet and get a job complete! Have fun walking out

 The charm invalidates weapon-attack damage, meaning one'll have to rely on
 skills to do any headway. Luckily, Knife Rain/Force Ring are perfect for this
 type of situation. The tortoises have more defense than any monsters you've
 had to face so far, but if you can inflict Confusion, all the better. Card
 Field will help as well. If Lutz knows Fatal Dagger, you might get lucky w/
 that. Feel free to Cardish any monster as well, and watch out for those
 Rocs' ability to inflict Silence. You don't want all outlets of attack to be

 A man will in purple slacks and a jean jacket will come by and steal a Magic
 Apple from poor Chongara; when Alec chases, he'll summon his lookalike big
 bros to help evade capture. When they run around and try to mix up Alec's
 selection, keep an eye out on the real one and pick him when they stop the
 squigglin'. You'll have to do this thrice more, as well. The correct thief'll
 get a heart-shaped icon above his head during the runaround, so if you lose
 track, keep yer eyes peeled for that telltale. The results are randomized, so

 Go to Tosh's manor to learn that "something big is happening" in town, and
 people talk in whispers whenever Tosh or his men are nearby. Alec is to
 gather information about this "something" that is on the horizon (Bazaar
 area is not affected so no need to search there). Apparently, there's been
 a strange man around town as well... Time to check the pub, inn, and all
 of the Society buildings... You need to check all five places, mind you;
 it's a good idea to talk to all the people. When you've collected enough
 info, Alec suggests heading back to Tosh's digs. There, a furious Tosh
 will tagalong incognito to see for himself. The pattern Alec has pieced
 together is:

 Item Society -> Pub -> Monster Society -> Weapon Society -> Inn

 You have ten (10) chances to find him by searching the buildings before
 Tosh relieves you of the job and does the work himself (i.e. job failure).
 The quickest way to complete this is, as soon as you leave Tosh's Manor,
 go to the Item Society then the Monster Society -- this catches him in the
 act. If you follow the pattern, you'll always be one step behind, y'see...?

 Anyway, he escapes because Alec holds Tosh back from murdering the charlatan,
 so there's gotta be a plan to lure him outside of where the villagers can be
 hurt... Hell Plain is the best idea. You have to search town for him, but it
 as easy as going to the southwest fenced-in area. Lutz will lure him down to

 Talk to the man at said location to learn a hired Hunter ditched a bunch of
 this shopkeeper's merchandise inside of the Secret Path, when monsters came
 and attacked. They're going to the shop in Gislem after they're collected.
 There was a rare-item gift for the shopkeeper in Gislem as well, but this
 man knows nothing of it 'cause he didn't pick it out. It's supposed to be a
 pair of "matched opposite items," also. O_O

 Inside, look for sparkles on the ground that denote dropped items. Since we
 have already been here, I'll forego writing strategies for all the stall
 battles 'cause it's all Golems, Golem Masters, Apprentices, and Hemo-jis
 (which are new for this location, but you can fight them elsewhere
 previously).

  • ROOM #08 - Revolver (in Secret Path Center area)
  • ROOM #08 - Steel Spear (in Secret Path Center area)
  • ROOM #10 - Dark Fragment (by northern exit)

 If you collect the Light & Dark Fragments, the party deduces that those were
 the correct gift and automatically heads to the Gislem shop. Congratulations!
 Now the Gislem shop sells Dark Fragments, and the Testa Shop sells Light
 Fragments. Wheeeeee! Job complete.

 ancient document."

  GUILD : Paysus
  CLIENT: Paysus Guild
  MERITS: 10
  REWARD: 200G
  UNLOCK: Available when coming to Paysus the first time (it's mandatory)

 The guildmaster says this Tikva is a little older than Alec and very bright,
 using the ruse of a job to steal the scroll. Since the monks helped rebuild
 Paysus, everyone owes them an unpayable debt -- that's why the town is in an
 uproar. Well, let's begin.

 First, visit Tikva's House in the northeastern part of town. The leader of
 this capture expedition will ask Alec to visit the temple and get details
 on the how and why of this situation, and also drops a hint that Tikva went
 to the Spell Institute in Rusaht. Stroll to the temple first to learn the
 culprit cast a spell on the monks in order to make off with the artifact.

 Down in Rusaht's college, a man directs everyone to talk to Marsia about the
 "strange spell" that was used. She'll "join" the party after some events, and
 then it's back to Amaidar. This time, the Archmonk Iga (another person from
 ATL2) allows passage inside. Apparently, Tikva told the monks that a monster
 had broken into the temple and when someone say him stealing the scroll, he
 was overcome by a strange force. In a flashback, it shows Tikva using some
 sort of handheld device to drain strength from the monks (and where have we
 seen those who use such things...hmm...).

 Return to the Institute to find the professors sprawled out on the floor.
 Tikva will incapacitate everyone but let it slip that a "flood control
 experiment" is imminent. Check with the Paysus Guild to be tasked with a bit
 of interrogation duty on the townspeople; head to the library to learn about
 the Academy's plans for the Romastor River. Head west of Rusaht to get there.
 A battle with our gigantor spearman takes place here.

 He'll use Agility Bellow to increase his evasion abilities and he can't be
 inflicted with Silence. Use Card Field to increase defense because he'll
 increase his ATK as well. Attacks like Impulse Bomb do more damage than any
 magic, why is why it's better to leave Marsia out of this battle (plus her
 DEF sucks like a vacuum). Watch out for the 'Hyper Galdo' attack which can
 do 100+ to one ally, and just keep using attacks like Impulse Bomb and any
 decent card summon. After five or six turns the battle will be over.

 After explaining the situation to Iga (automatically), Tikva's sentence
 is doled out and this job's complete once Alec returns to the guild. Marsia
 also joins this party permanently from now on.

  MERITS: 8
  REWARD: 300G
  UNLOCK: Complete Job 46 - "All Hunters, Find Tikva!"

 Save at the inn before starting, which is good advice from the guildmaster,
 'cause you can't leave once you go in the Library. Morzat will say the one
 of the depository's prized books has had a page torn out. He's gathered the
 possible culprits on the 2nd floor. The suspects:

  • YONAN     - He's always in the library (looks like a small kid in red)
  • CALPUNI   - A Spell Institute student (man dressed in beige)
  • MR. GANTS - Always leaves in a hurry (wears vest & purple pants)
  • SOME MONK - Very cooperative & nice (wears a white mask)
  • MULAR     - Bldg.'s head librarian (black hair and bluish shirt)

 Morzat wants to be informed of the thief when it's found out.

 If you talk with everyone, you'll find that Yonan mentions a "princess and
 her retainers" as the illustration, information that was not given at any
 time. Yonan DID do it; however, to get the best outcome of this job, you need
 to poke holes in his story. If you don't, Marsia will convict him on her gut
 instinct and the job will just get an 'okay' rating.

 So, instead of accusing him right off the bat, do the alibi inspection event
 downstairs. Theo will act out Yonan's place, and since he's the liar, he'll
 always "mess" up the order. Just make sure the other two characters' have a
 good position before picking to bring everyone downstairs (Lutz -> Cheryl is
 the correct order). Job complete if you figured out the alibis and suspected
 Yonan!

 NOTE: There has been trouble with the order messing up. When in doubt, make
 it Theo -> Lutz -> Cheryl.

 Again, the inflated HP isn't cause for alarm -- just use Card Field and get
 to work. Just watch out because the Myconids can inflict paralysis, and can
 do 100+ damage most likely (a little less for their counterattacks). Since
 they'll have a penchant for surrounding one ally and beatin' on 'em, this'll
 set up powerful attacks like Impulse Bomb. 

 After taking the monsters to school, Goose leads everyone to Amaidar Temple

 Cure yourselves as your HP values carry over from the 1st battle, and then
 Silence all the enemies as fast as possible. Bombard their starting position
 with LV3 attacks, and watch out for the earth-element attacks they use. They
 typically suck but can hit multiple people. Try to Cardish one of the foes
 as they're both powerful allies w/ Cardish.

 Watch out for the Alraune's paralysis-inflicting skills. If you Cardish-ed
 a Shuternelle in the previous battle, use that to kill everything. Equip an
 Emblem of Lark on those that don't have one for an easier time.

 A despondent Goose returns back home after the failed search. Luckily, Arty
 never left (WHAT WAS ALL THIS CHASING FOR THEN ARGH) and the job's complete.

 Ride to the Institute's practice hall to find Salubari. He needs the scroll
 to help his text he's working on, and his former teacher has it. Earth Wizard
 Doan is at the peak of Mt. Amaidar -- everyone heads there automatically. He
 cannot give it up without some sort of tribulation, however, so he'll ask a
 bunch of questions that have to be answered. 

  • 01 - A traveler is lying on the earth after his long journey. What is in
         his eyes? [ANSWER: Diamonds]
  • 02 - The earth goes on forever, and it ends at the edge of the forever.
         Who stands in the center of it and back to back? [ANSWER: Ocean]
  • 03 - A rocky mountain is stricken by thunder and crumbles away. From its
         fragments, some created weapons and others created castles. Those
         that made weapons waged war against those that built castles. Who
         would remain standing in the end? [ANSWER: The lawyers]

 After guessing, he says the questions have no meaning (d'oh!) and the true
 trial is about to begin. In each chest nearby is a talisman, representing the
 guardians: Light, Fire, Earth, Wind, and Water. The challenge is to fight
 against the monsters he summons while simultaneously collecting the talismans.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 BEWARE: Collect all talismans before defeating the last monster, or you will
 not get the best ranking on this job. The enemies are pretty lame expectedly,
 and can (maybe) die even with a counterattack, so waste no time in completing
 the main task. Since collecting chest contents does not use up a turn, try
 to position a character with decent MOV in the range of two chests, so s/he
 can make use of the turn.
 

 The [RED TALISMAN], [BLUE TALISMAN], [YELLOW TALISMAN], [GREEN TALISMAN], and
 [WHITE TALISMAN] all get to be kept afterwards as well! The [SCROLL OF TRUTH]
 is given over and it's a job complete after returning it to Salubari.

 where we'll start.

 In Rusaht's college, learn that Salubari stepped out awhile ago and went to

 Harzan is at the Proving Grounds. Since his trainees are so smitten with Alec
 and the story of how he captured Tikva, they want a match. Harzan's will be

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 After awhile, one really has to wonder what's up with these HORRIBLE starting
 formations the enemies are placed in. Any Lv. 3 spell can hit them all, and
 even on previous turns, they start so close to the allies that the upper hand
 isn't likely to change. The best course of action is to use Card Field as the
 "Amaidar Fist" attack can be rather damaging in its plus-formation attack. As
 for Harzan, his attack is through the roof so it's best to blitzkreig him
 before he can really put on the hurt...and that's not too hard, with his poor
 DEF rating.

 After hearing Harzan's tale, also interview the 5 monks you trounced before
 talking to the 6th monk to leave. Note that these two people do not make a
 job complete -- talk to _every_ NPC you can find, in the library, in Rusaht,
 etc. Not all are neeed, but as a precaution, talk to everyone you can find.
 LOL @ "The only memento I have left from him is a vacuum cleaner belt." o_O

 Once you've talked to most people around this small continent, return to the
 head librarian and give him the findings. Eventually, this book will be put
 on the bookshelf for Alec to read; his collected knowledge will be compiled
 there.

 Monsters can only be defeated with weapons this time, meaning it's time to
 gang up on Maneaters first and use items to heal (hopefully you have a few
 Amazing Herbs in your satchel). Since there's no Gaia Magic that can be used,
 don't bother bringing in someone like Marsia. If you think you may have any
 trouble, equip a gun/knife with an odd range (for instance, the Rocket
 Launcher has a plus-formation attack range). Regardless, use the surroundings
 to protect your back/sides for a little easier time.

 As reparations, the brother says: Rune Wand + Magic Power Nut = Magic Stick.
 The sister also gives a Dryad Monster Card to Theo. Job complete!

 Mountain."

  GUILD : Paysus
  CLIENT: Nana
  MERITS: 7
  REWARD: 340G
  UNLOCK: Complete Job 51 - "Collect Historical Information"

 Go to the mountain path (NOT the temple) NE of Rusaht and meet Nana. She'll
 say Kurt was tricked into becoming a monk, and he needs to be brought back
 before a 10-day training session begins. Nana will wait at Romastor River
 for the good news... Anyway, talk to the plainclothes person at the peak and,
 when Kurt tries to leave, it's time to sneak out. Pick the option that has to
 do with a plan -- this will start a "Monk Misdirection" minigame. The rules:

  • The object is to help lovelorn, clueless Kurt get down the mountain to
    Nana. Try and keep Kurt away from the monks. However, if a monk
    approaches, walk up to him and talk, blocking his view. If you fail five
    times, the job will be over, and counted as a failure.

  • MONK MISDIRECTION CONTROLS: Press x to talk with Kurt or any monk. While
    you have the attention of the monk, he won't be able to see Kurt. While
    you engage one monk, Kurt and the other monks will continue to move. Use
    Triangle to cancel a conversation. You can direct Kurt by talking to him
    from the direction you want him to go.

 It sounds difficult...until you do it. Monks can identify Kurt only when he
 is directly in front of their face, i.e. their line of sight goes straight
 only. By talking to Kurt, you can tell him to follow you for a bit. The big
 problem here is that monks can obstruct crucial paths, so no matter of 
 detaining can budge them from their set course. When Kurt reaches the top
 of the southern stairway, the second level of Monk Misdirection begins.

 There are only three monks here, so it's not that hard. The destination is
 the plank bridge in the south once again. Most monks patrol the north, but
 one dawdles by the SW part. Make sure Alec obstructs his view so that Kurt
 can escape. After getting through this 2nd course, it's a job complete!

 ...well, not really. Alba and his crew show up for some reason. When Kurt
 and Nana split, choose "Stall him". This is a 4-on-3 fight now!

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Whee! Their starting formation sets them up for mass-attack skills, so lay
 some on 'em. Inflict Silence on Enea to stop her from casting any magic; a
 weak attack on up to three panels is all she will have, then. Card Field to
 help break their attack down a bit, also. One fun thing to do here is have
 Lutz use Fatal Dagger to take off 100s of HP...if it hits, that is. As long
 as Alec survives and can cast Resurrection, this shouldn't be too much of a
 problem. Still, fun fight!

 The enemies can attack in a T-formation, and for 100+ damage per hit at your
 current levels, probably. Use Card Field to reduce the hurt, then bombard 'em
 with your best mass-attack skills. It would be in your best interest to keep
 a good distance from each other, and have Alec on-hand for Resurrection. That
 said, a good Impulse Bomb can probably do 150+ if Alec is Lv. 40+. You can
 try Fatal Dagger as well. And, if you didn't pick up on it, Marsia's horrible
 DEF should dissuade you from having her in-battle -- what a liability! Don't
 bother trying to Cardish one of these monsters, either...it's not likely to
 work (unless at high levels).

 Afterwards, when Alec has to divulge how he came up with the hint, choose
 "Run away". Job complete!

 any be alive and weakened, they'll use Banzai Run to explode themselves, and
 damage everyone in a square around their location. Card Field will help take
 any edge off, particularly because all HP values are the same from before.
 Cardish any new types if you can!

 As before, this job will also take top priority so complete any unfinished
 jobs prior to undertaking this. The locations for this job are Parute Desert,
 Dartanelle Beach, and Tolarka Ruins. Dartanelle's had strong monster problems
 lately, Tolarka Ruins baddies are rather average, and Parute Desert's are too
 weak to even bother with almost.

 Alec will have to pair up the teams to suit the areas. Interview the Hunters
 to find out their strengths, being (from left to right)

  • Man w/ Sword   = Strong
  • Woman w/ Sword = Crappy
  • Man with Rifle = Mediocre
  • Redshirted Man = Crappy
  • Woman with Bag = Strong
  • Man with Spear = Mediocre

 If Alec pairs them up for the jobs correctly, he should not have to fight a
 single monster himself. The correct order is:

 DARTANELLE BEACH = Man w/ Sword + Woman with Bag
 TOLARKA CASTLE   = Man with Rifle + Man with Spear
 PARUTE DESERT    = Woman w/ Sword + Redshirted Man

 Afterwards, Alec will go onto the field to see how the hunters are faring
 with their assignments. If you chose the above hunters/locations, everything
 will be tiptop...until Parute Desert. Remember the story of Enea's commander
 and the moral of underestimating the enemy? Well, despite the favorable party

 Wow, how's that for "crappy monsters"!? Card Field immediately and cast Brain
 Blast if Alec has it, in the attempt to inflict paralysis (or if you have a
 card that does that same thing, use that). Still, no matter how high HP the
 enemy has, you can use Fatal Dagger to whittle it down to a very small amount,
 for what it's worth. Copper Dragons drop Wind Amulets, also, so try and get
 one!

 Job success if you make it out in one piece.

 The weird side effect this time? Well...there isn't one, but still, it's just
 a needless stall battle. Card Field, Impulse Bomb, good offensive cards...
 they all work here. The middle formation leaves themselves wide open to a
 nice bombardment...just don't underestimate the poewr of the Doommongers!

 Awfully boring. The only thing that makes this battle hard is that all HP
 values carry over from the last battle, and anyone in weakened condition can
 get the shaft by the weakling mice/snake types. Use a good offensive card to
 take care of 'em, is my recommendation.

 One more time, with feeling!

 Again, just use something damaging like a card and weaken/kill them all in
 one glorious offensive (Cobra card's death-dealing rays doesn't seem to work
 however).

 Shillena recovers all HP/MP for the help in choosing an inn location, even
 though insensitive Lutz needs to get a good b'slap to the face. It turns out

 This job requires undivided attention, and any in-progress jobs will have to
 be done first (or aborted as a result). Visit the Mountain Retreat to learn
 his request to have the prize changed has been rejected, and winning the
 tournament is the only way to get the Aura Stone out of the Academy's hands.
 If it's won, it can be stored in the Item Society...which is better than
 throwing it into some deep ravine or the ocean, apparently. o__O

 First step is gaining access to the tournament. At the Paltos Arena, Gruga
 will allow Alec to participate in the tournament. Velhart will also be here
 with a change of heart... Visit the waiting room to the right of the lobby
 and Alec's match comes up.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 Leegle is the guy who saved Sasha Village way back when, remember. Too bad
 he's a big hack! Cast Silent on him and Impulse Bomb him to death. Note that
 his 'Spear Toss' attack is weaker than his normal one, but just to be safe,
 silencing him's the best course of action. Use the arena periphery to stop
 any back attacks, also. He's not very good, especially if Alec's a higher
 level than him (My Alec is Lv. 47, and that's without power-leveling!).

 Second battle is with...Shadow!

 He can do about 70+ damage with his physical attack, which means that Alec
 should retreat to the west edge, protect his back, and Impulse Bomb from
 afar. If you think you need to Cure, do so! This speed demon may surprise
 you if you give him enough room... Silence doesn't really matter here, and
 he seems to be impervious to paralysis.

 Velhart's in the final, no surprise.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 The not-so-dark-anymore horse can win this without too much trouble! Again,
 use the west side to protect Alec's back, and Impulse Bomb the heck outta
 Velhart. He's immune to silence and paralysis, so don't waste any time on
 those avenues. Velhart attacks from the front a lot of the time, which sets
 up a bunch of counterattacks, too. Well, there's that noble spirit for ya.

 Velhart steals the trophy, unfortunately, and conspires with the Academy
 goons, who have gathered at the Parute Desert. The Secret Academy Base is
 in the southern desert region's west edge. You can see a little building
 there against the rockwall -- that's where yer headed.

 This job is complete after going through the Secret Academy Base, getting
 Velhart into the party, and giving the Aura Stone to the Item Society in
 Paltos.

 Wouldn't you be depressed if your name was Catch Mamaman? Either way, find
 him on the ground floor at said location. He'll confess he has aspirations to
 get the 'fire' back he had in his earlier days. The solution evades him, but
 each member comes up with an idea to help him. Cheryl's idea in particular
 strikes Catch like a lightnin' bolt -- LOVE PAIR BATTLES! Now, Catch needs
 to put the execution phase in gear...but where to find lovey-dovey pairs to
 battle each other? Alec and crew find a bunch, but as expected, there's a
 problem from the get-go...everyone wants a different type of partner!

 To pass this job, at least one good pair has to be made to headline the next
 tournament of this sort. Talking to the participants will garner information
 about their ideal mates:

  • Spicy --------> Wants adventurous partner and is good at healing
  • Natasia ------> Partner good with a blade, but not a ninja
  • Izabel -------> Partner who uses firearms, but not a ninja
  • Zenden -------> Person good at long-range, but not a swordfighter
  • Geles --------> Rifleman who doesn't want a whip-using partner
  • Hakan --------> Uses fists, but doesn't like guns
  • Pamela -------> Great healer and admires spear-users; hates ninja
  • Clea ---------> Partner good at close-range fighting, likes fistfighters
                    but hates ninja

 With this in mind, the best pair is Zenden & Pamela. However, we still need
 to pick opponents for these guys...out of your own team! I don't believe it
 matters too much (I picked Velhart/Cheryl); just go to the arena when you're
 ready to kickstart this.

 Yeah, it's not big deal. Naturally, destroying the healer is the smartest
 thing to do, but the Spear Hunter isn't too good either. Just use your best
 skills and heal when necessary, itemwise or other.

 You have to give the people a good show since Catch's rep depends on it, i.e.
 a victory gets you the full bounty. If you win, it's a job complete!

     http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/psx/file/arc_the_lad_iii_kutao.png

 Anyway, eventually you will have to fight some hunters in one of the rooms
 marked in all red.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 These selfish brigands can still be dropped like a sack of bricks, just with
 Silence + Fatal Dagger + Impulse Bomb. Use Excitement to raise everyone's
 ATK if you need to, but chances are, you won't have to. Brain Blast's chance
 to inflict paralysis may help out as well. [NOTE: Subsequent encountesr with
 these two idiots are different; they will be accompanied by 3 Lv. 43 Treasure
 Hunters who use whips (two-panel range). Heal up!] Note that these do not
 count as hunters that need to be saved.

 Anyway, proceed through the maze in any way you like until you get to the
 warp room. There are four panels, going from left to right. The leftmost (#1)
 will be pushed in and may not work, #2 & #4 return Alec to the room with the
 first tablet, and #3 makes the northern exit lead to the B3 area.

 At the second warp room on B2, if you read the tablet, you'll know to pick
 the path "that memory dictates." Which, of course, means the destination is
 once again the third panel. This opens the way forward again; the others only
 warp back to the large room with an "X" or the tablet nearby. North two rooms
 will lead to a hunter whose female companion's been kidnapped by some golems.

 Like usual, Fatal Dagger can help get rid of some of these with ease, while
 Excitement/Card Field will help buff out the party. Their starting formation
 is horrible like usual, and any upgraded attack can hit all six of them in a
 single go. Also, they're remarkably slow, so if you work fast, you can get
 rid of most of them before their first turn.

 ---

 In Warp Room 3, simply go in the door already chosen -- the tablet tells of
 the future, which means the default panel is the one you use. (You can tell
 which warp room it is by the number of swirls on the central floor panel.)
 Warp Room 4 has four different paths to take:

  • PANEL 1 -> Tablet #5
  • PANEL 2 -> Hunters, then 
  • PANEL 3 -> Treasure chests x 3
  • PANEL 4 -> Two battles, then Treasure Chest x 3

 Panel 2 leads to some hunters whose companion went ahead to find some meds
 for her injured fans. Continue to the fifth warp room and press the second
 panel (from left) to keep going -- all others will revert Alec's team back
 to the room with a large 'X' on the floor, about three warp rooms prior...

 Continue along the path depicted in the map until you find the last hunter,
 who returns to her companions. Raid the chests one room up and follow back
 to where the two injured hunters were. If you got all the treasures around
 here, choose to "Join them" in going back to the surface. If you don't want
 to go back, you can warp out in the room where the last hunter was (i.e. the
 last orange spot on map).

 Everyone automatically returns to Testa and it's a job complete!

 It starts immediately, so save beforehand. The Guild Chief says they'll be
 using the room in the back for the training (kids! argh!). Ask Yann, the guy
 who resembles Yang from FF4, if you need assistance. They'll be doing some
 communications tests, by passing the message down the line of kids and seeing
 how accurate it remained. After the first practice run, Alec should do nada
 if the message has been verbalized correctly; the X-button's used on wrong
 messages. Letting wrong messages slip through will make trainees lose trust,
 and a trainee quits after losing trust thrice. SMALL CHANGES ARE ACCEPTABLE!
 Here are the messages to keep in mind, with the bad segments capitalized for
 easier visibility:

 #1 - "A Hunter has to be strong, but strength alone does not make a Hunter."

  • "A hunter has to be WRONG, but strength alone does not make a Hunter."
  • "A hunter must be strong, but strength alone DOES NOT WAKE A HUNTER."
  • "A hunter MIGHT BE strong, but strength alone does not make a Hunter."
  • "A HUNGER must be strong, but strength alone does not make a Hunter."
  • "A Hunter must be strong, BUT STRONG COLOGNE does not make a Hunter."

 #2 - "The Guild network is speedy, but is sometimes inaccurate."

  • "The Guild network is sometimes OUT OF PLACE, but they are speedy."
  • "The Guild's speedy CLERK can be inaccurate sometimes."
  • "Sometimes, THE GOZ'S network can be inaccurate, but is speedy."
  • "SIX TIMES, the Guild's network can be inaccurate, but is GREEDY."
  • "Sometimes the Guild's network can be inaccurate BUT IS NOT speedy."

 As you can see, most sentences only have one wrong segment, except for Kid 4

JOB 74 - PROTECT THE MATERIALS SHIPMENT                                  [JB74]

 previously collected items, while they continue with their duties. Report

 The heck...? Why is the destination in Ragnark? Well, no matter -- head to
 Midoro Swamp to find Shu. The specifics entail keeping goods from being taken
 by monsters, and by dividing into threes, the tasks can go a bit easier. Both
 Alec and Velhart have to be on the monster-fighting team; who you pick as the
 third man is up to you (I chose Lutz for his Excitement ability).

 ---

 As Shu said, if the monster gets past the edge of the dock, it's over (this
 location is marked on the map).
                                      .---------.---------.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 The main goal is, of course, to prevent the monsters from escaping to the
 bottom-left corner of the screen. Cast Excitement first off and slap a nice
 Impulse Bomb in the middle of the foes to take 3 or so out at once. This is
 just a repeat of the last Midoro Swamp battle, so it shouldn't be much of a
 bother.

 After this, you'll have to make the person a two-man team, Velhart and Alec
 (you can't change this.) Next up...

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Same as before except one less monster to worry about (whee compensation).
 The Zombies can all be attacked in one go with Impulse Bomb, while Velhart
 can slice-'n'-dice from afar with Omega BREAKER or attack all in a big range
 with Omega BURST. Really not that hard at all if you've been using Velhart a
 lot...just watch out for the gels' inflicting Gravity. You do not want to get
 both caught up in that and fail the job!

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Yeah, we rushed back for...this!? Because there are more enemies, there is
 a higher concentration in a smaller area. This translates to EASY IMPULSE
 BOMB FODDER, gwa-ha-ha-ha! Use Excitement and commence with that plan. Watch
 out for gravity-inflicting attacks just the same, though.

 Job complete if you completely rebuffed all the enemy waves!

 Raia says that she needs someone skilled enough to dance to her song PRONTO,
 because the auditions are starting very very very soon. She wants someone
 with a natural dance ability, endurance, able to be expressive, and can keep
 from getting winded easily. Oh, and good memory, and concentration. Naturally
 only Cheryl and Marsia could so this!

 ---

 As Raia sings, Marsia's signal will be the []-button; Cheryl's will be the
 O-button. When the lyrics come up, one of those two buttons will be under
 certain words. The trick to remember is that you have to press the button
 when she says the word, not when the lyric lights up -- you'll get more
 errors if you do that.

 ---

 During the actual competition, there is a total of 40 possible points, and
 you have to beat 34 points to take home the best prize. It's just sad that
 it takes a bazillion years for Raia's turn to come, 'cuz if you screw up,
 you've got to watch it all again! If you practiced a lot, this will be no
 sweat; however, Anrietta will come into the mix (signal: x-button). Know
 this ahead of time so you can prepare a bit easier! You can mess up a few
 times (I missed about 6-8) and still get perfect 10's...just make sure to
 nail the easy ones, 'cuz the hard ones start the verses and disappear really

 Villager Hemo-jis will have a white mask on their faces, which is basically
 the same sprite as a Shaman Hemo-ji. Fix Cheryl's aim by using the d-pad,
 and use the x-button to fire at Wild Hemo-jis; use the O-button to fire at
 villager hemo-jis.

 Basically, this is like a fun minigame where Cheryl goes around town and
 shoots some slugs at the hemo-jis. The above directions apply after Alec &
 Portia are Hemo-ji'D. If a Hemo-ji touches Cheryl, it sacrifices one of her
 companions; when all companions are sacrificed, the next touch ends the stage

 Pandira is the town just southeast of Testa, remember? Talk to the director
 of the bawdy house, err, inn to learn the person wearing the costume he's
 ordered will help serve guests. Marsia's the only one who will fit in it,
 so...she's elected!

 Her job will be to remember drink orders and serve them very quickly. The
 minigame is called "Barmaid," and is separated into rounds. Mess up four
 times and it's a job failed. =(

 Oh, and Chardonnay is Wine, Sour Mash is whiskey. In case you're familiar
 with those beverages...

   • Barmaid Round 1

      • [East] - Man -> Beer
      • [West] - Woman -> Wine
      • [South] - Man -> Milk

   • Round 2

      • [ NE ] - Man -> Beer
      • [East] - Woman -> Whiskey
      • [South] - Man -> Milk

   • Round 3

      • [West] - Man -> Whiskey
      • [West] - Man -> Beer (This guy is just right of the whiskey man)
      • [South] - Woman -> Wine
      • [East] - Man -> Milk
      • [East] - Woman -> Milk

 This can definitely be a little hard in the later stages, so it may take a
 little practice. One helpful thing to do is write down the orders on WordPad
 or something which should help a bit in memorizing. The one good thing that
 comes out of this is that, when served the wrong drink, the patrons leave and
 you don't have to factor them in any longer.

 You should be able to get a perfect score once you know the drinks they want,
 as they're the same no matter how many times you reset. Job complete only if
 the orders are given PERFECTLY. Even one mistake bumps this down to incomplete
 or worse... =/

 For starters, use MUSUO I/II/III to completely evade physical attacks while
 leaving openings for counterattacks. It likes to use Thunder God Fission to
 inflict decent damage, so equip Flay's Crest to help cut down on attribute

 spectre. Seal Thunder Cut can do 100+ as well, so keep some healing items on-
 -hand (Soul Herb, Super Amazing Herb, etc.) for when Velhart's HP gets lower.
 Wing Cut is a crappy physical attack besides. He has 1000 HP, which isn't too
 hard to whittle down with Omega BUSTER doing much of the work. Still, because
 Velhart is alone, you may have trouble on the healing end. Be prepared...!

 Talk to Elnan at North Sularto's Item Society to learn the document is called

 societies" also...whatever that means. Anyway, it's search party time at the
 world's societies.

 ---

 Scope out the Weapon Society to learn the document in question is probably
 called "The Secret of Itemass." In Testa, learn that someone named Secat was
 the one who proposed it to congress. The researcher also has a memo about it
 being unproven... A researcher in Paysus says that Secat had a son named
 Horace who works at Paltos' weapon society...head there!

 Secat's son says that his father used to lock himself up in his room to be
 undisturbed. At this point, go to Testa to learn that Secat consulted with
 Leshalt before going to congress, and Leshalt upset him so much that Secat
 locked himself in a room.

 Back at Paysus, learn some info about Leshalt & Recat before returning to
 Elnan. His father's journal sheds some light on the situation -- Leshalt came
 up with the theory and Secat announced it first to get the credit! Return to
 Horace in Paltos to find the Secret of Itemass stored away on a bookshelf, of
 all mundane places!

 A note describes the events regarding the document in full; Horace bestows it
 on Alec. Return to Elnan for a job complete!

 Protect that dang Wind Pearl, folks!

 Bull-headed Velhart is heading them off alone at Astorny Bridge; Lutz is his
 backup and can only handle three ninja. That means that only three can get
 past Velhart. There's a small minigame where Velhart has to slash the foes
 (with the x-button) when in a close proximity, dealing a deathblow at once.

 You can only miss three max or the team in Vernica is overwhelmed and gets
 bumrushed (although if you fail, you find out the Wind Pearl was broken and
 replaced as a fake by everyone in the village. LOL!). This may take a few
 times to get it perfectly; the sad thing is there's so much dialogue leading
 up to it the player has to sift through. Beware of ninja who run fast and
 slow down midstride, and those who jump over Velhart completely.

 Note that there's a little leeway if a "tiebreaker" occurs -- Velhart gets a
 kill in that way. There's also some randomization that comes with the ninja
 who advance...sometimes you'll get a bunch of slowpokes, other times speedy
 demons.

 Walk to the Bazaar Control office (near inn) to learn the inventory has been
 increasing, maybe in regard to the strange man seen around recently. He wore
 a blue button-up shirt and a policeman's hat (or similar). Time to talk to
 the owner at the inn and find out what doesn't belong in the warehouse...

 [NOTE: Now is a good time to save the game if you want to save time later.]

 Unfortunately, she bought a grab bag full of different toys...but arranging
 them in lines might help her remember her initial setup. When Alec & Marsia
 put four in a row, two don't fit. Sadly, the correct animals are randomized
 so there's no set solution to get through this.

 When you pick an order and check it, the woman will give information on if
 the animals match and if their positions are correct. Alec's teammates will
 remember each try on Turn #1, Turn #2, etc. Try to find the correct plushie
 positions first through trial and error.

 If you fail this, don't worry -- it's difficult and annoying as you only
 get six tries (per) to do both the front and back rows (2 and 3 positions,
 respectively). Even with good deductive skills, you still need some bit of
 luck.

 card a few sorta-rare monsters, though. [NOTE: Since the correct monsters
 differ each time, this battle is randomized as well.]

 Turns out the wholesaler who was selling stuff to the lady is hiding in the
 bazaar, and is the one responsible for the sabotage. Time for a minigame
 called "Catch the Culprit!". Use the d-pad to move in directions, which'll
 make Alec move until he hits an obstacle. If the culprit reaches the bottom
 or top exit, job fails (AND YOU HAVE TO DO THE PLUSHIE THING OVER AGAIN!)

 #############################################################################
 You have to try and corner him, as he moves away from Alec. Always attack
 from the position that prevents him from approaching an exit, which means
 try to keep him out of the middle or any other position that gives him better
 access to both. However, he always runs away from the direction Alec moves
 toward him in, meaning if he's in the middle, come from the east/west to be
 safe.
 #############################################################################

 If you want to know how to do this from the start, Alec starts in the middle.
 Head north one space then go all the way to the northeastern corner. From
 here, go one space south, then west to find culprit. Chase him to the western
 wall and make him go into the southwestern corner. A monster will pop outta
 Chongara's pot and frighten him, allowing Alec to capture the perp.

 to be nearby but she's never seen it... Might be in the Sealed Ruins, though,
 which is the place at the Great Scar where Theo got his Cardish powers.

 ---

 Once there, the doors at the back of the temple resist the party's efforts 
 to open 'em. A spirit says only the roots of the tree remain currently, and
 the doors won't open because of a theft long ago. Someone stole a Guardian's
 egg, and it's not fearful of humans. So how to open the gateway to its heart?

 As you can see, at the first fork, a [WIND FRAGMENT] is found way at the end
 of the south fork, while the east one goes a lot farther (and you have to go
 this way, natch). Theo will find a monster friend down that way, who beckons
 him to go the left path. Take the right hole's vine and follow after the li'l
 bugger.

 In the room directly after where the monster first appeared, take the vine
 (using the option) and backtrack one area, and go down the right side with
 that vine. It leads to a monster room with a [WIND FRAGMENT], [TEM'S ROOT],
 [TEM'S ROOT], and [WIND FRAGMENT]! And, after you're done, you can simply
 take the root connecting to that room and bring it back to the three-way
 fork. Go down the left hole with it and the right hole's vine.

 After going a ways down, eventually we'll reach a path that goes directly
 south to a monster room. South of there is a two-hole place. Take the east
 vine down to a [WISDOM TABLET], [EARTH FRAGMENT], and [WISDOM TABLET] 'fore
 climbing right back up and taking the vine. Plug it in the west hole and
 go down.

 Follow it until you get to the last treasure room, with a [PHALANX], [WISDOM
 TABLET], [GREEN TALISMAN], [ROCKET BOMB], and [EARTH FRAGMENT] inside. Climb
 back up and take that rope (after fighting the monsters). Climb back up and
 return to areas prior, to the three-exit place -- go north to the next 3-exit
 place. This time, take the left rope __UP__ and place the rope you took a bit
 ago into the slot. Take the rope you just climbed up and go down the western
 hole to where the save point/heal point is. Continue along until you've gotta
 clean up an infestation...

 I wonder how they came up with this name? A flurry of Excitement, Card Field,
 and Magic Shield will help makes it damage-dealing horrible. It uses Genesis
 X to switch its tail and head, which isn't much of a tactic. Raging Blaze is
 its other attack (fire-attribute) on the allies around it. Lame! Anyway, once
 1000 damage has been done, the battle ends.

 This thing keeps growing a new head! After regrouping, the little monster
 that Theo saved wants to be turned into a card to help. It changes the boss

 Excitement + Card Field + Magic Shield to start off. It uses "Killing Mist"
 to inflict damage and poison on those around it, and "Fascination Laser" is
 not such a bad attack either. After enough damage, it uses "Movement" to
 go to another location on the field. It's got about ~1400 HP to sift thru,
 but Impulse Bomb can deplete 200+ per hit and some physical attacks can do
 about that. Not that hard, but it's fun to have a boss fight once in awhile.

 will help a bit. Stone Tortoises can improve their DEF, so don't waste too

 If you do it in time, the [FANDELION] gets picked! I think Alec and Kulara

 Sania, the fortune-teller from Paysus [Jiharta]! She confesses enigmatic
 things catch her eye, making the Mystagia from Kaoyan Forest a perfect
 supplement to anything! It absorbs other plants nutrients to live, so if
 the Mystagia isn't picked, it'll die. When faced with the choice, pick
 whichever one you want -- they're all [MYSTAGIA]s! Now, let's find a flower
 for...

 ---

 Raia! She works in Shante's Pub in Itio City nowadays (she may still be in
 Parute if you didn't help her out) and likes flowers that inspire passion.
 A Passion Rose grows in Parute Desert; the true form of it is rarely seen,
 however. Singing supposedly draws it out, though... When Alec gets to the
 desert, try to pick up the flower a few times. The real flower ultimately
 appears in the middle-east portion of the map. [PASSION ROSE] obtained!

 ---

 Anrietta! She's a spoiled brat, so it's only natural she'd have her favorite
 flower hanging around. If you talk to her, she gives the [PRINCESS ANRIETTA
 FLOWER] to him, which is just a purple Gorgeous Rose. If you give the flower
 back to Anrietta at this point, you can recruit her as a _permanent_ ally
 later on. However, you will be fail the job (#100) you were sent to do. Pick
 your poison, 'cause she's the only optional character in the entire game. If
 she's the last person on the list, you only get one chance to give her the
 flowers!

 Bring the flowers you've gathered to Dario, and if you have at least three
 left, it's a job complete! And he didn't even have to put a shirt on, too!

 Still shouldn't be too hard. Just item-heal if you're backed into a corner,
 which has about .01% chance of happening as long as you're evenly-levelled.

 a single target with paralysis, too.

JOB 92 - GET THE ETERNAL ICE!                                            [JB92]
===============================================================================

 "A key item needed to make the Ark is believed to be in the Jiharta area.
 Contact Iga at Amaidar Temple for more information about finding the Eternal
 Ice."

  GUILD : Paysus 
  CLIENT: ????
  MERITS: 13
  REWARD: 800G
  UNLOCK: Complete Job #86 - "Get the Eternal Tree Branch!"
        : Talk to Paltos' Guildmaster to make it available in Paysus (only)

 Iga suggests going to northern cave where the Eternal item is supposed to
 be located, the Ice Gallery. At the end is a icewall where the special
 thing can be obtained. Get a move on!

 ---

 Anyway, this place is mostly full of "slide" puzzles. This means that Alec
 will have to step on some ice and glide around until he comes to the exit.
 The first room is awfully simple but it gets a little harder later on.
 _______________
|SLIDE PUZZLE #2: Alec starts in the S part of the map. On the easternmost
 tile, slide north -> west -> north -> east to the [WATER FRAGMENT]. From
 there, it's north -> west -> east -> north -> east -> north -> west to the
 exit.

 A little ways ahead is the next puzzle by a save and heal point.
 _______________
|SLIDE PUZZLE #3: There are multiple treasure chests here. Here's how to get
 them.

  • Blue Talisman ---> Stand south of save point and go south -> east ->
                       south -> west -> north -> west -> south.

  • Blue Talisman  --> By the save points, stand on the SW corner of the dry
                       land. Walk one space east then glide south -> west.

  • Water Fragment --> Stand left of the save point and walk west until you
                       slide to the opposite solid ground. You can see a rock
                       just south; go to it. Then, it's east -> south -> west.

  • Raila's Mirror --> After getting the Water Fragment (above), simply go
                       south to solid ground. Whee!

  • Water Fragment --> Stand left of save point and glide west to the next
                       segment of dry ground. Stand in the SE corner and walk
                       one space west before gliding south. Go west -> south
                       -> east -> north.

  • EXIT THIS PLACE -> Stand left of save point and glide west. That's all...

 Defeat the Dark Fogs/Water Dragons and continue  to the Eternal Ice Wall
 that shields the booty. No one can think of a way to get through, however,
 so it's back to Rusaht's institute. Salubari says the "Giga Plasma" spell
 can break the ice wall, but few people can learn it because they have to
 defeat all the elemental wizards and learn the essences of the elements!
 Sounds like a long, boring run-around quest... =(

 Only four are currently known, though Master Harzan of Amaidar Temple could
 probably shed some light on their whereabouts. Salubari summons the four
 wizards, and Harzan reveals the names of the other Light/Dark wizards --
 the top of Amaidar Mountain. Talk to the Chun-Li-lookin' woman at the cafe
 to learn Sania's at the library; after, return to the temple and get Iga's
 message to leave for the mountaintop. Tikva trains to become the Light/Dark
 Wizard, so return to Rusaht and challenge the wizards in the training hall.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 This is a Marsia-only battle, but even with their horrible ATK there's a
 huge DEF to overcome. If you've been using her a lot up to this time, all
 you have to do is use the opposing attribute attacks on each wizard. It'll
 probably fry 'em easily. On the other hand, if you haven't been using Marsia
 up to this time (she was Lv. 20 for me), you may have your work cut out for
 you. I suggest artificial DEF/MAG raising with the buff items, and equipping
 the Delight Heal (+10 HP/MP per turn) and Flay's Crest (-50% attribute dmg)
 for easier effect. I beat them all at Lv. 20 by using two Rocket Bombs -- it
 takes over 100+ off each, and since they clump together, it's an easy way
 out for those low-levelled people. For me it went:

 TURN 1: Hit with Air Blast + Heat Shell; Marsia retreats SE and heals up.
 TURN 2: Hit with Air Blast; Marsia uses a Rocket Bomb
 TURN 3: Hit with Air Blast/Heat Shell/Land Ax; Marsia kills three wizard
 TURN 4: Hit with Water Crumble; Marsia uses another bomb and kills Ovel.

 Beat 'em at Lv. 24. ^___^  Now's the time for the Light/Dark Wizard....your
 old friend Tikva! Marsia can't go &
 save in-between, either,  y'know...  .---------.---------.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'------------------'

 A high-levelled Marsia can dominate this easily, but for those who aren't
 up to par with Tikva, do the Flay's Crest/Delight Heel accessories to cover
 her back. Don't bother using light/dark attacks on Tikva because that's his
 specialty. You can switch out the Delight Heel for a Light/Dark Amulet, also,
 since he only has two attacks. Personally, I just threw a bunch of bombs at
 him to win 'cause my Marsia's too low a level to deal real damage with her
 Gaia Magic. Oh well, whatever gets y'through...

 After defeating Tikva, Marsia learns the Giga Plasma spell. Rest/save at
 Rusaht and return to the Eternal Ice Wall (no backtracking necessary). Let's
 stick it to the boss...

 As per usual, Excitement/Card Field/Magic Shield at the start, while Velhart
 uses MUSOU I/II/III. Ice Masher can do 150+ to a single target, so all the
 more reason for attribute-reduction accessories and spells. It uses Icicle
 Cage on those in close-range, which does poor damage if Magic Shield is in
 effect (~30); Prism Wall, however, summons up to three Ice Golems into the
 battle...all the more reason to bumrush the thing and go as far north as
 possible. The summoned golems appear way in the south. ^___^ Cliff Gigantor
 has about 1000 HP, so it's not an insurmountable value.

 "A man calling himself 'Spicy' says he will die if the girl he loves won't go
 out with him, but lacks the courage to approach her. See him upstairs at the
 vacant house to assist."

  GUILD : Itio
  CLIENT: Spicy the Lover
  MERITS: 6
  REWARD: 370G
  UNLOCK: Complete Job #86 - "Get the Eternal Tree Branch!"

 Ahaha, finally we get to help out Spicy, the "Jilted Loverboy from Hell"!
 Our love-struck ninja has fallen for Chuanna, the girl who lives just down
 the street from the vacant house. He's only been...creepily stalking her for
 the most part up until now, though, and hasn't even talked to her! It's time
 to guide his adoration of Chuanna for him. 

          Spicy : "I would go to the depths of Hell for you!"
          Chuanna: "OK, then die."

 Turns out she actually will try a relationship with Spicy, on the condition
 he shows her he's got the bite to back up the bark. She only wants 1-goz
 memento she dropped at the vacant house's ground floor. Return there to
 find that it's in the NE corner of the room. Lutz will move the boxes like
 that one previous job. Here's the setup:

    _        _
   [_]      [_]      --- STEP ONE ---
    _  _  _  _
   [_][_][_][_]      Move the southernmost box to the left.
         [_]         

    _        _
   [_]      [_]      ### STEP TWO ###
    _  _  _  _
   [_][_][X][_]      Move the box with the "X" on it as far north as it will
      [_]            go.

          _
    _    [_] _
   [_]      [X]      ### STEP THREE ###
    _  _     _
   [_][_]   [_]      Move the box with the "X" on it to the east.
      [_]

          _
    _    [_]   _
   [_]        [_]    ### STEP FOUR ###
    _  _     _
   [_][_]   [X]      Move the box with the "X" on it north and claim the coin!
      [_]

 ---

 Why Spicy couldn't just teleport to the stupid coin is beyond me, but finding
 the coin doesn't win Chaunna's heart anyway. Now we need to find a Star
 Fragment for her. There's supposed to be one in the Ruined City over at North
 Sularto. Kulara's kids won't let Spicy look, but Alec and team are perfectly
 suitable.

 Now a minigame where Alec's team blocks the vision of the kids while Spicy
 sneaks up on the Star Fragment. It's about the same as when the job was to
 help a monk escape from his training to see his lover. Fail this thrice and
 it's a job failed!

 Talk with the X-button to stall the kids, and also make Spicy move in the
 direction Alec's at. Convos can be interrupted with the Triangle button.
 This one is more difficult as, when you press Triangle, you have to do it
 before Spicy is near you because it takes up a turn, i.e. the conversation
 does not end automatically. The easiest way to proceed is to use the northern
 garbage piles for Spicy to hide in, which helps him get through a bit easier
 than if he'd tried to go along the flat southern border. IT CAN BE ANNOYING
 SO YOU MAY WANT TO SAVE BEFORE DOING THE BOX PUZZLE TO CUT DOWN ON TIME!

 To be honest, I've been able to cut straight across the middle with some
 luck. You do not have to get all the way to the eastern side, mind you, just
 past...say, the last junkpile on the northern border. Get a [STAR FRAGMENT]
 and return to Itio. Chaunna has one last request...a...Crystal Bone? Whuh?
 It's in White Bone Forest at Ragnark.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Shouldn't be anything a card summon + Impulse Bomb can't handle. Take out the
 Litchs first for good measure, though. Both are decent Cardish targets, also.

 Finally, Chuanna will accept Spicy's love. It will be revealed why she sends
 Spicy on so many of these weird missions...she's part of a step of triplets,
 and each has sent him on a quest! And each is in love with him! I'd call it
 a job complete...too bad Spicy can't handle the popularity.

 Go to the Bazaar and talk to Chongara, the sometimes-amnesiac in the SW
 corner, to learn about the flame. A special water exists that will help him
 remember the location of the last Ark component; it's in Ali's shop down in
 Pandira. He's selling it for an exorbitant amount of goz, though, so we'll
 need a better way. Simply return to Chongara and Marsia will drop a Land Ax
 on his head to recover the bearded guy's memory.

 Apparently, the Eternal Flame is in a smoking mountain in North Sularto...
 It's the Volcano Cave just above Gislem. That's the destination...

 Dario will think of a way to help Cheryl's gun freeze the lava: combine a
 Rocket Bomb, Grenade Launcher, Ice Saber, and Calm Nut! Go to Gislem's Danger
 Dome to meet Gudan and his gang. He drops the thing that Dwarf Behemoths in
 Kutao Temple will have some (note: to unlock Kutao Temple, you must accept to
 do Job #72). Here's a map of the place:

      http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/psx/file/arc_the_lad_iii_kutao.png

 See the orange room just right of the "B1" marking? That's where those Dwarf
 Behemoths can be found.

 These little buggers have great elemental defense, so use specialty attacks
 like Brain Blast or Divide to take them out easily. Fatal Dagger also works
 for whittling down their HP, especially if you want to Cardish one. Their
 "Heavy Bell" attack is pretty crappy, and you can paralyze them if needed.

 A [CALM NUT] is acquired after battle (always), and back at Weapon Society,
 the fabulous, glorious, incrediblelastic [STONE GUN] is created! Next-door,
 Elnan will have a [LAMP] that can carry the Eternal Flame somehow. Clutz Lutz
 puts it in his charge... -___-

 Return to the Lake of Fire (no backtracking necessary) and the mysterious
 flying object reveals itself as Diekbeck! There's a minigame where Cheryl
 prevents lava from falling on Lutz by using the Stone Gun to stop it cold
 in its tracks. Decide where Lutz ascends with the d-pad and press "X" to
 start the ascent. She can only make lava blocks in the wall's vertical gaps,
 however. If the target is green, Cheryl can't shoot there. Oh, and fire with
 "X" also. It'll stop the lava for one round. Don't worry if you mess up --
 there is infinite retries. ^____^ HINT: You can see where the lava will begin
 at the very top, and it always flows down; however, it always takes the turns
 when available, so that's how it makes its weird pattern. Here's how I did
 it:

 Slot #3 (third from left out of 4 available) -> shoot gap right next to Lutz
 
 Turn 2: Shoot gap right left of Lutz
 Turn 3: Shoot gap just NE of Lutz
 Turn 4: Shoot any gap 'cause the lava won't get Lutz anyway

 On the fifth turn, Lutz will make it up and capture the [ETERNAL FLAME]! The
 job is now complete! Diekbeck will give Theo his monster card as well.

 Check out the society in town and when Theo asks, allow him to do the job.
 For some dumb reason, the tourney is to be held in the monster-infested
 Karkado Mountain Range (!?). Card effects will be shown and then the person
 will have to guess which card it is. Study if you want to, but it won't do
 any good if you haven't been collecting AND USING cards. =/

 Anyway, off to Karkado! There are five rounds in all, and a person is DQ'd
 if they get two wrong. It's multiple choice, of course...

 R1: Purple bird that shoots eye-lasers ---------> (A: Crimson Roc)
 R2: Floating machine that shoots shotgun -------> (A: Gunner)
 R3: Red grim-reaper that shoots scythes --------> (A: Litch)
 R4: Gigantic white hammer falls on ground ------> (A: Mage Hemo-ji)
 R5: Dragon shoots windy breath at the ground ---> (A: Earth Dragon)

 Lumina is the toughest competitor here, and she'll get question #4 wrong
 everytime you play, so to get a job complete, you need to get ALL FIVE
 questions right. It's kinda stupid, because if you tie, you still get the
 1st-place prize of a [CARD TRIDENT]. 2nd-place prize is a [GOD'S NECTAR
 FRUIT], which isn't so bad either.

 Job complete if you get all questions right.

JOB 100 - FIND THE MISSING DAUGHTER!                                    [JB100]

 "Anrietta Rochefort is missing and may have been kidnapped. Contact Sebastian,
 the Rocheforts' butler, for details."

  GUILD : Paltos
  CLIENT: Butler Sebastian
  MERITS: 9
  REWARD: 900G
  UNLOCK: Complete Job #98 - "Get the Eternal Flame!"

 Sebastian is beside himself in fear, so it's time to search her room. Look
 at her kitty to find something on the ribbon -- [ANRIETTA'S NOTE]! It says
 she's got such a demanding life and wants to get away from it all for some
 time, so don't look for her. Time to scour the townscape and see more clues!

 One of the women by the Monster Society says she was going to Paysus, so go
 there. Talk to the kid by the canal to learn Anrietta headed to Amaidar
 Temple for some reason. The gate guards say she wanted to become a monk (!)
 and beat up some of the monks inside, making the most humiliating incident
 in the temple's history. =p

 Next, head to Rusaht's institute and find Salubari. Anrietta left her mark
 here too, beating up some people and running away after learning how long
 it takes to master Gaia Magic. At this point, return to the Paltos mansion
 to find her again.

 Apparently, Anrietta talked to Kulara and wanted to change identities. At
 the orphanage, a girl says Anrietta took everyone to the Ruined City.

'-------------------------------------'---------'---------'

 Anrietta can join this battle, but it really doesn't matter -- these guys
 were easily beatable 50+ hours ago. Next!

 After this, Anrietta asks to join Alec's party. Pick "Are you serious?" and
 "All right." to get her into the party, but know YOU WILL FAIL THE JOB IF YOU
 PICK THIS OPTION. Also, if you haven't done every mission regarding Anrietta
 up to this point, and didn't give her flowers in Job #90, she can't join at
 all. There is no prize for completing all those missions, and this is your
 only chance to get her in the party, so choose wisely!

 Job complete if you bring Anrietta back and don't allow her to join you. PS:
 re-enter the mansion to see a blessing scene with her father. ^_~

 Meet Rupert to see that the Ultimate Monster is apparently locked in Volcano
 Cave somewhere. The legend is "Unleash the dragon chains with shining light,
 When light and shining come together, the slumber within the Eternal Flame
 shall end. When the Ultimate Monster awakens, the Legend shall be reborn."
 Six types of dragons will unlock this thingy, apparently...three light &
 three shining. Fire/Earth/Water Dragons count as "Light" types while Gold/
 Silver/Copper types count as "Shining"...

 We need one of each, and at some point, will have to take some back as Theo
 can only carry five (and Diekbeck takes up a slot). Here's where all the
 types can be found:

  • Gold Dragon  --> Midoro Swamp [Ragnark]
  • Silver Dragon -> White Bone Forest [Ragnark]
  • Copper Dragon -> Sealed Ruins [Forestamore]
  • Fire Dragon ---> Volcano Cave B3 [North Sularto]
  • Earth Dragon --> Trial Cave B2-A [Eteru Isle]
  • Water Dragon --> Ice Gallery 3F [Jiharta]

   [NOTE: The above does not include jobs where these monsters appear.]

 All of these locations were mandatory at some point or another, so I won't
 bother mapping each one. Some have only appeared on Disc 2, also, which is
 why you may not have heard of their whereabouts.

 Once all cards are found, save and return to Rupert to guide him to the
 Eternal Flame. The Altima will be summoned but quickly dies, leaving only
 its card behind for Theo. However, it appears the species is reborn so it's
 a job complete!

 Wanted monsters are special critters that have been deemed heinous and/or a
 large threat to the nearby communities. The game calls them "Outlaw Jobs," as
 they're more of a poaching mission than a run-of-the-mill type...these ones'll
 always involve fighting. A thing to remember: wanted monsters show up with the
 general lot, but only appear after the battle has started.

 A few notes:

   • There are a total of 72 wanted monsters in total
   • In each region with a guild, six wanted monsters appear (per disc)
   • Half of the wanted monsters appear on Disc 1, the rest on Disc 2
   • THEY ARE NOT MISSABLE! If you accidentally forget some, finish all of the
     current Outlaw Jobs and the guildmaster will notify you that new posters
     have been put up.

 A zombie in these parts!? Well, it'll probably appear with a couple Slimes,
 which have been scientifically proven to be 0% useful as enemies. It's got a
 basic knife upgrade on it, but since this takes place after Trial Cave and it
 was possible to get one there, this shouldn't matter too much. It's physical
 attack will do ~18-20 which is pretty basic, also. It also has a poison skill
 from what I reckon (that's it's claim to fame), but the zombie never seemd to
 use it...which is good. [NOTE: You probably have to defeat this one first if

 Kiska Marsh is known for having Pit Scorpions, so a few (up to three!) may
 appear here as well. They'll be Lv. 7 but only have 11 HP; just don't take 'em
 for granted or you may end up paying the price. Draw everyone close and use a
 skill like Knife Rain to defeat multiple scorps at once. Alphaium's physical
 attack tops out in about the mid teens, making it really not that formidable.
 Just watch out for the scorpions' skill that can inflict Gravity which is not
 great if you get ganged up on! Luckily said monsters drop Gravity Nuts which
 can cure that status. =)  Make sure to steal that Soothing Ring which prevents
 Poison status (this monster can use Goo Spew to poison one, after all).

 This time, it'll probably be accompanied by high-level (40+) Flash Hiders, so
 kick out the Card Field pronto and rely on Impulse Bomb to clear the riffraff
 from the bridge. If you think you'll have trouble, use Fatal Dagger to clear
 most of Phreakar's HP. He's got a great sword for Alec that can be stolen at
 this time, too, which doesn't have as great attack as a Mystic Sword but'll
 give +30 DEFENSE!

 A lot of ATK, very poor HP. You can probably OHKO it with Impulse Bomb, and
 get rid of the minions around it (Vipers and Stone Gels, most likely). One
 weird thing I noticed is that you can't JUMP over the mark... I wonder why
 that is. Steal a Life Fruit if you can.

 This monster may not appear until Shiverall (#08) has been nixed. It'll
 appear with the same type of baddies that #08 did, which makes this battle
 a bit boring. It carries a rare Super General Tonic to steal, though, and
 that makes this battle worthwhile...sorta. Watch out for "Paralysis Spore"!

 This bugger appears with a bunch of crappy Lv. 5 Slimes/Sidewinders, which
 are marginalized for this strategy. Card Field if you so choose, and gun for
 that Mind Smasher it carries, which is a throwing knife that can inflict
 Confusion. Compared to the Palo's Knife, its ATK is poor and AGL is way way
 worse; however, the tradeoff gives a huge DEF boost (+28). A very good weapon
 to have if you aren't big on synthesizing.

 This is one of the cooler monsters that can be hunted, because its physical
 attack can inflict Sleep and it carries a blade (for Lutz) that carries the
 same trait. There's really nothing to doing this guy in because his cohorts
 are crap, so the ol' Impulse Bomb will wreak havoc.

 Phantoms, if you recall, can drain HP with their physical attack. Corpse and
 Pit Scorpion enemies appear with it, but only the latter is new to this area.
 They can use "Body Fluids" to inflict confusion, just as Will Sapper can use
 its skill -- counter with Silent to prevent any sticky situations. Besides
 that, just deal more damage than the mark absorbs, which is about 80/per atk
 with Card Field on.

 Buzzcutter himself isn't much to worry about if you can get him one-on-one;
 it's more of his companions which can be an annoyance. Pit Scorpions and Rocs
 appear at Astorny Bridge as well and can just be general nuisances -- up to 4
 minions may appear with the mark! If you can, use Cardish on a Crimson Roc
 and summon its card to inflict Silence on all enemies; this helps immensely.
 The 'Bomb' you can steal is an offensive item which can damage enemies in a
 small radius. Yay?

 The Karkado Mountains are north of Lieza's house, and that's where this foe
 dwells. Most enemies are easy to deal with, but Wyverns and Wild Dogs are
 tough foes that can really do damage (they have 65+ ATK) if they gang up on
 one person. Use mass-damage cards when Theo's turn comes up to help get rid
 of them easier. Huddle together to minimize damage and set up Alec's healing
 ability. The Magnetic Belt it carries makes a character Gravityproof, which
 is a good thing to have -- steal that sucker!

 I had a heck of a time getting this one to spawn, as it didn't show up until
 I had completed all jobs up to #20. There's a chance it appears with some
 wild dogs and rocs, so it'll be a good idea to pre-empt the hurt by taking
 'em out with one of Theo's summons. Rotmonger is susceptible to gravity and
 poison, so, if you have a Roc/Poison Slime summon, that'll work well. Also,
 use Theo's Card Field to buff everyone's defense -- this helps a lot. This
 zombie's got a storebought steal, so you don't have to bother.

 The monster can appear in Noalis Forest as soon as it's available, although
 you may stumble upon Howlers first. It's got more HP than any regular baddie
 thus far, but that doesn't necessarily make for a harder time, especially w/
 steel weapons/armor. Swipe a Magic Apple if the opening arises.

 Not much to say about this doggie except it's on par with the Wild Dogs one

 appear with some Crimson Rocs, though, so make sure you have a way to counter

 This monster doesn't seem to want to appear until Howlers has been sent to
 the dog kennel in the sky, so if you're having problems finding it, that may
 be why. Its Paralysis Scream attack is an utter nuisance if it affects all of
 the allies, which is why silencing it is the way to go. And it DOES use that
 skill A LOT. Luckily, its horrible DEF will be its downfall! Steal that herb
 it carries, which will come in handy later.

 There's a good chance this monster will appear with a lot of Cassowaries,
 Crimson Rocs, and a Cockatrice -- that means a lot of status effects. Bombard
 with a Silent attack first off because there's no room for maneuvering on the
 bridge, and you'll set yourself up for cramped attacks. Equip any paralysis-

 a few Rad's Reagents, it'll still save you a couple thousand $$ to steal it

 it carries can be bought in Paltos and isn't imperative to steal.

 Often appears with Wyverns & Kerberos. If you look at it's stats, you'll see
 that my transcription isn't glitched -- it really DOES have 13 HP and 98 DEF!
 Yeah, it's weird. You shouldn't have any problem taking it out, but still, a
 fight like this isn't deserving of a Hunter! The only thing you have to watch
 out for is counterattacks if you try to go for its Mysterious Ore item. Lucky
 for you, you can avoid such hypotheticals by sending in Lutz alone, since the
 long-range users don't counterattack up-close.

 Also, use Fatal Dagger to shave its HP off, since most attacks will be doing
 1 DMG to it. Velhart's Omega BUSTER attack can also bypass defense to do dmg

 Wow, this guy's packing major HP, huh? The enemies it appears with will most
 likely be Kerberos types, so use an offensive summon to help clear away all
 the detritus 'fore Hellspawn gets near. When the mark does get within range,
 use Lutz' Fatal Dagger to slice most of its HP off in one stroke. It can use
 a "Fire Breath" skill which is single-digit damage. NOTE: The Mystic Sword'll
 heal the dragon.

 It appears with weak enemies, but remember that Crimson Rocs can still slap
 people around with Hypno Eyes (inflict: Silence). Kinda annoying, but this
 battle's nothing to write home 'bout. Use Card Field if you want, steal that
 Life Fruit. Aurora's physical attacks can drain HP sometimes, but only in the
 amount of the damage done, meaning Card Field reduces it. Yawn!

 As we know from previous fights, Crimson Rocs can inflict silence on allies,
 so equip a Falcon Statue to prevent it. If you don't have one, you can make
 one at Society Village by synthing two Harmony Needles together. However, it
 will probably appear with high-powered robot enemies (Prowlers, SA/PA-100s)
 so bring along a Stun Smog card to inflict paralysis all around. Force Ring
 and Card Field will help immensely. Just don't get caught inbetween Hypno
 Eyes and four of those SA/PA-100s -- that's got bad news written all over it.

 You might have to defeat Screamer before this mark shows up. As before, use
 Force Ring/Card Field to buff yourselves and hopefully stall some of the
 robots' powerful attacks (or make them turn on their own allies!). It's not
 very damaging on its own, which makes this an easy kill.

 Gohran is easy to gore, 'cause his minions are often horrible Lv. 2ish Viper
 and Sidewinder enemies. Defeat that group with a nice Cardish summon, then
 bash Gohran to death. He's got a Fur Cape, which would have been nice when
 we were on Eteru Isle, but it's become obsolete (and storebought) since we
 came to North Sularto. Silence him to prevent any "poison" attacks from
 seeping out.

 I don't know where the "well-hidden" part comes in, as it appears in battle
 just like the rest of the soon-to-be corpses. Anyway, the thing you have to
 beware here is that most monsters (Shades/Stun Smogs) can inflict paralysis.
 Try to take them out en masse with cardish summons, and use Card Field to
 ramp up your defense. It's got a basic piece of synthesizing material on its
 person, if you want it. Oh, and inflict Silence to keep it from doing any of
 its annoying attacks.

 Just like Gohran before it, this freak of evolution can appear with a bunch
 of weakling snake types (Sidewinder/Viper) which makes this job a little more
 easy. It has a little trouble showing up, though; you may have to exit and
 re-enter eight or nine times to get it (if you've got my luck). Use Card
 Field if by chance you have some Desert Devils to fight, and Silence this
 flower to stop it from paralyzing you. In fact, pre-empt it with a Stun Smog
 summon which takes care of its minions. Steal that Emblem of Lark, which is
 an accessory that prevents paralysis. Its 'Stun Spore' attack can affect any
 ally within two panels of it, which is the cause for Silence (if you wanted
 to know).

 Field to avoid any nasty attacks from the Shades that appear with it, and

 Cardished a Stun Smog, try to inflict paralysis on the enemy. ^__^

 Ugh, Galecki Falls was home to some powerful robots before, but on Disc 2,
 you can still find low-level baddies with 140 ATK! It relies mostly on normal
 attacks, but Silence it just in case before railroading it with some pointy
 objects... (Don't bother stealing either).

 Card Field yourselves (the mark starts all the way across the screen) before
 it arrives, and use a summon to clear the rabble from the field. It's still
 powerful despite 100+ DEF, so don't hesitate to Impulse Bomb/Excitement in
 order to take it down. Fatal Dagger works, too, if you're weakend already.

 Again, this monster will appear with a bunch of machinery types, all of which
 should be low-leveled and with 100ish ATK. It's got a high damage output, but
 is susceptible to paralysis (i.e. use Brain Blast or cards to inflict it), a
 tactic that makes stealing its Super Alloy Spear a lot easier. And, if you've
 found that spears aren't incredibly bountiful, this will be a great boon to
 Theo.

 Yeah, it only has 128 HP, meaning you can probably defeat it before it gets
 a single attack in (the last tough robot had lots of DEF to compensate, but
 this is ludicrous). It's got a nice bomb to steal, but nothing you probably
 can't make at the Item Society with a little experimentation...

 Enemies with high DEF can be a problem because people with low ATK will often
 do 1 damage. There are a couple of ways to counter this, being (1) raise the
 ATK with Excitement (2) use Fatal Dagger and shave off nine-tenths of the foe
 HP (3) use Velhart's Omega BUSTER to do reciprocal damage in the amount of HP
 he has lost. Rehith will appear with a bunch of Night Callers, Stun Smogs,
 and Sleeping Gusts, all of which are troublesome -- that, and Rehith can use
 a skill to raise its DEF even more! DO NOT COME INTO THIS BATTLE IN A WEAKENED
 STATE or you may definitely regret it! Impulse Bomb can take out over 4 foes
 on turn #2, though, which may or may not play in your favor. Keep Resurrection
 on hand until the danger's passed, and try to inflict paralysis before it can
 use Shrinkage.

 Although it can silence foes, it may appear with Hemo-ji enemies that are
 awfully weak (paralysis was a much better status, yo!). Card Field if you're
 hurting and use spread out to avoid its silence range. You can steal a nice
 magic apple from it, although it's not too hard to make with two regular ones
 (steal 'em from Ogre Mages).

 We're all aware of how weak Dandelions are (at least in comparison to other
 creepy-crawlies), so I won't mention too much on it. It will probably appear
 with tortoise types and Crimson Rocs, meaning you have to watch your guard
 about getting silenced. That Yellow Talisman is by no means commonplace, so
 stick it in your pocket when you get the chance. Just watch for Underkill's
 "Paralyzing Scent" ability, which inflicts just what it says.

 Lurker may not appear until you've skewered Underkill (#39) in this same area.
 Anyway, slime types aren't known for their indominable strength, but you'll
 still have to take care against the Crimson Rocs and the Tortoise enemies (who
 will raise their defense to ~50 and make them harder to destroy). Naturally, a
 heapin' helping of poison status is always lurking around Lurker... Steal the
 Black Talisman the slime carries, as it's not readily available yet.

 This monster's escorts will probably be a bunch of bomber fly enemies, which
 are easily disposed of if Tosh is in the party. There's not much to it, but
 you'll want to steal that Earth Fragment DEFINITELY. Those things don't grow
 on trees, y'know...and the ones that you are readily available cost quite a

 This monster may not show up until Tordriad (#41) is defeated. Luckily, it'll
 probably appear with the same bomber fly escort that #41 did, making the
 fight rather lackluster. It's name should tell you about its sleep-inducing
 abilities, so any Insomnia Cards you have (combine two Mints at Item Society)
 will help -- it's physical attack can also inflict this status.

 your allies around with Confusion/Sleep. A couple of crappy Ogre types will
 also appear, but they're nothing to worry about. Keep Refresh on-hand and
 Card Field when possible to help make this not quite such a boring battle.

 The minions are a bit better than the norm at Dongle Cape, with a bunch of
 Lv. 30-40+ fly types. Hellman carries a spear so the two-panel range is to
 be expected; 'sides that, it's more BLAND KILLING! Oy, this violence really

 Same minion types (flies) as the fight with Hellman, except you'll want to
 definitely use Card Field here. Silence it when it approaches and pull off
 a nice card summon to clear the rabble. Anyone over Lv. 40 should have no
 trouble with it (and really, who'll be under Lv. 40? LOL).

 and Crystal Gargoyles. I'm not sure, but it may be possible an Armor Eater

 that might be the reason. There's a good chance Thunder Giant will appear w/
 a bunch of Maneaters and a single Armor Eater (Lv36), which is cause for a
 bit of alarm. Card Field and use any summons, then bombard with any AoE type
 of spell. Force Ring will work well here, and might help expedite the battle
 length (although it's more likely to kill everything if Alec is around Lv40).
 Steal a Hyper-Alloy Rod from it, which will help make Marcia more useful if
 you've been neglecting her.

 The river attracts many enemies who specialize in status effects, such as
 Silence and Paralysis, so equip the necessary precautions. Cassowaries can
 use 'Fireball' to inflict fire-attribute damage; however, this attack will
 most likely suck so don't bother Silencing Molten Wing. Steal its nice held

 and Pen-Pen Plants. Immediately cast Silent to do away with any status effect
 possibilities, and follow-up with something useful, like Lv. 3 Force Ring. It
 can use Unholy Scream (range: 2) to inflict instant death, presumably, so the
 Silence status will be doubly helpful here. Steal its HMA if you can, although
 it's not imperative by any means.

 This baddie may not show its ugly mug 'til Grief Lord (#52) is uprooted. When

 It will probably appear with Maneaters, which are pitiful shells of a good
 monster. Use Card Field to take the edge off its high ATK power, and prepare
 to waylay as many minor enemies as possible before they gang up on someone.
 That Dark Fragment it carries will be useful as well, if you can swipe it.

 Lv 30ish monsters still appear here, mostly Shuternelles and gargoyle types,
 so they're not much to worry about. The best method to fell this Tree Giant
 is to use Fatal Dagger when it approaches and Impulse Bomb before it can get
 in any damaging physical attacks.

 More gargoyle types will accompany this lordly ogre, so preface a card summon
 or something with Excitement to add extra hurt. And, well, the Fatal Dagger +
 Impulse Bomb attack is mostly foolproof. Ogre Lord can be inflicted with some
 paralysis, although it shouldn't matter. Now's also a good chance to steal a
 Hyper-Alloy Rod if you didn't get one earlier.

 poison, and sleep attacks -- Silent them or use card summons from afar to get

 can no longer be bought in Testa at this time, so be sure to pocket it if you

 As its name suggests, it can use paralysis attacks; it also appears with a
 few minions who specialize in other types of abnormalities, like sleep and
 silence. They're all low-levelled, so a card summon can decimate 'em rather
 easily. That Litch Ring it carries is an odd one, too. Each turn, +50 MP is
 refilled while -50 HP is lost. Strange but it has its uses...

 This behemoth appears with some low-level Dryad/Tulips. Excitement/Card Field
 before approaching, and Fatal Dagger + Impulse Bomb when up-close. If you're
 having trouble stealing the Super General Tonic it carries, it's susceptible
 to paralysis. Yawn...

 Quite possibly the dumbest-named creature in the game, it appears with some
 Maneaters and Dragoons, all really low-level riffraff. However, the Dragoon
 enemies can inflict paralysis...which isn't quite a maneuver outta left
 field. Steal the Dark Vest before the heavy Impulse Bombin' commences.

 I've no idea why they revived Sidewinders as a 'viable' wanted monster, but
 it's definitely crappy compared to the baddies who accompany it -- Dragons!
 Well, they're not that good either... It has a Falcon Statue, but since when
 are those worth wasting time on?

 Venom Hounds can poison of course, but their defense is horribly lacking,
 even at 50+ levels. Dragons will appear with this doggie, but nothin' some
 high-class damage skills can't erase. Card Field to be on the safe side,
 though.

 Field, and the Mandrake/Dryads that show up to help it aren't too difficult
 to overpower as long as you don't get hit with Unholy Scream (inflict: KO).

 Excitement/Card Field tag-teamin', there's really nothing that can go wrong
 here.
