To my Summon Night: Twin Age FAQ, Twin Age is the latest installment in the Summon Night series recently released on the DS, it sports a "freestlye" battle system whereby you tap an enemy to attack, or touch an empty space to signal your character to move to a certain area on screen. The versatility is vast in this game compared to previous titles. If you like "Ragnarok Online" then I believe you'll love this game! What you'll find in this guide are the usual offerings you'll find in any other profesionally written FAQ you see on GameFAQs.com.

Take the time to look through, who knows, there may be something that you do not know? Of course for further clarification just refer to the game's instruction booklet everyone have one, right? ############################# CHARACTERS DESCRIPTIONS [CH!] ############################# Summon Night allows you to switch between two characters. Aldo and Reiha, and you're also able to bring in a third party member, though, you won't be able to control them directly, they will act on their own. Aldo is more to physical while Reiha is proficient in magic. PLAYABLE CHRACTERS ------------------ 8 playable characters including both main heroes: Aldo and Reiha. The rest are additional members to bring along, so in a given battle you're allowed up to 3 characters + 2 types of Summon Beasts. o ALDO (PHYSICAL) Aldo is a Summon Beast, summoned by Reiha 7 years ago during an accident Reiha lost her father and has since been living with Aldo, she treats him just like her younger brother; the only family she ever have. Aldo is more to physical delivering damage upfront via various equipped weapons. He has many skills at his disposal, depending on the weapon you equip, (Sword, Axe or Lance) you can use different skills. If you like your battles swift and quick then playing as Aldo is recommended. He adores Reiha very much. o REIHA (MAGICAL) Aldo's older sister. If you read the booklet prologue then you will know that Reiha is the very girl whose powers got out of control and caused the accident to happen 7 years ago. In the midst of the disaster she summoned a Summon Beast. Reiha is magically inclined meaning she's very apt at casting spells and causing hurt from afar, if you love your magic then you will definitely enjoy using Reiha. She loves Banna Berry. o NASSAU (PHYSICAL) The leader of the Garbah tribe of Kascuza. Nassau is the childhood friend of both Aldo and Reiha, he's open-minded and straightforward speaking whatever is on his mind, he also has issues trusting humans. His manners towards his grandfather is not something you should follow in real life. Nassau will join your party shortly soon after you've reached Marbado. He has high HP and average SP but his skill with the axe is second to none, basically another helpful powerhouse to have around in your party. He got some attitude problems when it comes to trusting humans. o AYN (MAGICAL) Another childhood friend of the above three characters, being a Priestess and a Princess have its ups and downs, but with friends like Aldo, Reiha & Nassau, Ayn is never alone. Ayn is able to sense Spirits much stronger than anyone else thus allowing her to "harness" extremely powerful healing magic, Ayn is only useful in normal melee battles during boss fights 1/3 times she'll struggle and die leaving only you and your partner behind. Always fear of being left all alone. o TICA (PHYSICAL) Tica is an apprentice Summoner, she joined your party under the order of Sir Zarham. She has a lot to hide from the crew but she's not exactly a vile person, there are times when the group is in trouble she lend a helping hand whether out of goodwill or not is another story. If her portrait was any indication at all Tica is an Archer, so that classify her as a physical class. Lapdog of Sir Zarham. o LILA (MAGICAL) An arrogant Summoner who pay no heeds to the words she chose to converse with others, she has offended Nassau a couple of times. But truth is she is the one that cares most about the Kascusza (according to Ticah anyway). Lila is another magical character much like Reiha, the only problem is, she has low Support Rank. Adores Mardin very much. o MARDIN (PHYSICAL) He joins your party pretty late in the game, Uncle Mardin here is an Ex- Summoner, exiled due to a certain reason. He's more to physical and pro- tecting the party from harm. Out of all the characters I enjoy having him as my third party member the most, next to Millisar. I mean Nassau isn't too bad but Mardin's better. He's a cool and composed kind of person always analyzing and insist on seeing two sides of a story. You youngsters should learn from him. Don't be a Nassau ok. o MILLISAR (PHYSICAL) NON-PLAYABLE CHARACTER ---------------------- Characters that made the game slightly more bearable... o CARAWAY & SAFFRON Two idiots that are on a mission to perfect their magical skills, Reiha think they're apprentice Summoners. Well, I think otherwise. They do provide your team with side quests every now and then though. o NEMO The owner of The Dolphin Song he provides Reiha and Aldo with various equip- ments and other various goodies. At times you'll run errands for the guys in the form of side quests. o STORE CLERKS They're triplets you see them often at The Dolphin Song, one of them is a Summon Night know-it-all. o INGIELL A wise old man, foster parent to Aldo and Reiha and grandfather to Nassau. Ingiell was approached by Mardin to care for the two heroes a long time ago. He has fulfilled his promise and both kids are now traveling with Mardin. o PHICRA & GHARDIB Two Summon Beasts who are on a mission to return to their own World, they try to convince Aldo to join their side, but with Reiha around that's not gonna happen. Their action to return home created a "hole" in the world. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ########################### CHARACTERS STATISTICS [CS!] ########################### Characters overall performance in battle are determined by the various stats found in the Status screen. By equipping weapons, armors and accessories you are able to increase or decrease both Aldo & Reiha's stats. I'll explain what does each attribute means. ATTACK (ATK) <-- CHARACTER'S ATTACK POWER ----------------------------------------- Determines one strength, you can increase or decrease this stat by equipping weapons, skills such as "RAGE" or "ATTACK UP" will temporarily increase your attack power for a short period of time. The higher the value, the more damage your character will inflict upon the enemy. Certain accessories do affect this stat as well (POWER BAND). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ MAGIC (MAG) <-- CHARACTER'S MAGICAL POWER ----------------------------------------- Determines one magical prowess, you can increase or decrease this stat by equipping armor and accessories. The higher the value, the more potent your magic attack will be. Certain accessories do affect this stat as well. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ DEFENSE (DEF) <-- CHARACTER'S PHYSICAL DEFENSE ---------------------------------------------- Determines one character's defense against normal physical attack, you can increase or decrease this stat by equipping armors. Skills such as "GUARD UP" will temporarily increase your defense for a short period of time. The higher the value, the less damage you will receive from enemy physical attack. Cer- tain accessories do affect this stat as well. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ AVOID (AVO) <-- CHARACTER'S ABILITY TO AVOID ENEMY ATTACK --------------------------------------------------------- Determines one's ability to dodge against enemy attack. Skill like DODGE MASTER for Aldo will permanently increase your evasion, it is a PASSIVE skill so no activation or whatsoever required, just purchasing it will do. The higher the value, the better the chances of success to avoid enemy attack. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ACCURACY (HIT) <-- CHARACTER'S ACCURACY --------------------------------------- Determins one's accuracy, in other words the higher the value, the lesser the chance for you to miss. The passive skill "HIT MASTER" for Aldo will permanently increase his accuracy. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ WAIT (WAI) <-- THE TIME CHARACTER MUST WAIT BETWEEN ATTACKS ----------------------------------------------------------- The lesser the value, the faster your character will attack. You can increase or decrease this stat by equipping weapon and armor. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ SPEED (SPD) <-- CHARACTER'S MOVING SPEED ---------------------------------------- The higher the value, the faster your character will run on screen. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ RESISTANCE (RES) <-- CHARACTER'S RESISTANCE AGAINST DIFFERENT ELEMENTS ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Displayed in %. Anything with a negative (-) means that one particular character is weak against an element. So, if Aldo has a -50% to his Water stat, he will receive 50% more damage when is hit by Water magic. Certain accessories do affect this stat as well. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ############################ CONTROLS & NAVIGATIONS [CN!] ############################ Most of the action requires you to use the Touch Screen. The controls are not complex or hard to understand. I'll briefly explain some of the controls in the game below. NINTENDO DS LITE _______________________________________________________ | | | _________________________________ | | | | | | | O O | | | . . . | | . . . | | . . . | 1 | . . . | | | | | | | _________________ | | | | | | | |_________________________________| | | | |_______________________________________________________| (___________________________|________________________||_) | | | 3 _________________________________ 4 | | _ | | | | _| |_ | _________________ | X | | |_ o _| | | Y A | | |_| | 2 | B | | | | | | | O O | 5 | | | | o START | | |_________________________________| o SELECT | | | |_______________________________________________________| ASCII Art by defunct32 1. TOP SCREEN: Display the party's stats and other useful information. Refer to this to check your party's health and the command to perform certain skills will also be displayed here during battle. 2. TOUCH SCREEN: For more information just scroll down a bit to the "Tips & Hints" section. 3. D-PAD (Directional-Pad): Use this as opposed to the Stylus to navigate the Overworld Map. Can also be pressed to advance conversation. 4. A, B, X, Y, L + R: From what I remember (oh I'm so lazy to refer to the booklet) A, B, X, Y will advance a conversation, to speed through lengthy talk sessions hold down B + R. 5. START & SELECT: Press START to pause the game during battle or when in dungeon, pressing SELECT while the game is being paused will switch the top screen from "bar view" to "numerical view." Pressing START during conversations will allow you to backtrack past dialogue up to a certain point. This is useful if you're going to make a "Dialogue/Conversation FAQ" or something like that. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ################## TIPS & HINTS [TH!] ################## Summon Night: Twin Age utilizes a "Real-Time" battle system whereby every- thing happen all at the same time, it's not that hard to follow but it can be intimidating when you're in a boss battle and everything is all over the place etc, etc. What I've compiled here are battle tips and some pointers which I've discovered during my gameplay (some are of course taken from the in-game tutorials or the instruction booklet), they may or may not be useful, you be the judge of it. I'm only sharing what I think is best! If you've a better suggestions or tips to share, then send me an e-mail. Full credits will be given, so please leave behind your name or internet alias. ------------------- E Q P / S K I L L S B A S I C S ----------------------- 01. EQUIPMENTS -------------- Upgrade your equipments whenever possible, there's only one shop in the game: "The Dolphin Song" whether you choose to forge, enhance or purchase your equipments is up to you what's important is it's all up-to-date. 02. OBTAIN SKILL POINTS ----------------------- There are 3 ways to earn skill points: o Leveling Up. o Defeating Bosses. o Clearing Events. Skill points can be used to purchase and upgrade your skills. 03. PURCHASE SKILLS ------------------- In order to use skills or magics you'll need to purchase them first, access the Main Menu and tap the "Learn and Confirm Skills" button. The skills are divided by Ranks, higher ranks does not mean powerful or great. What matters in this game is how you level up and use your skills. When it comes to Aldo purchase only skills that you know you'll use, there's no point in investing points into Axe and Spear when you're only going to use Sword skills. For Reiha make sure to maximize her healing magic such as "Heal," "Restore" and the like. You can pretty much purchase whatever skill you like with Reiha, since she's more to magic it's safe to say majority of her magics are useful. Don't overspend. If you're not sure whether you want to purcahse anything, then don't buy anything at all. --------------- S E T T I N G U P Y O U R P A R T Y ------------------- 01. SETTING UP YOUR PALETTE --------------------------- Palette can be set at any time during the game, whether in the Overworld Map or during melee/boss battles. There are two sets of palette one on the left the other on the right, each housing 6 slots so you've 12 slots to fill up. How you choose to arrange them is up to you, but I suggest having only 10 important skills and 2 restorative items (1 HP type, 1 SP type). Access the Main Menu and choose "Edit Command Palette" button on the screen at the bottom there are 5 options: Skill List, Inventory, Weapon List, Hero's Command Palette and the Exit, you only need to tap either the Skill, Inventory or Hero's Command Palette button to switch between the two heroes, tap your desired selection once from the list, and then just tap one of the slot in the Command Palette, all set! Once you're happy with how you arrange your palette, leave and save your changes (by saving the game). 02. CHOOSING YOUR PARTY MEMBERS ------------------------------- Even though you can't directly control your third party member in battle it's still advisable to choose the correct member to bring along. In this guide I will state who to bring as your third party member. Though ultimately it's still your choice. 03. CONJURING BEASTS -------------------- You can conjure beast to help aid you in battle, there are requirements to be met before you can conjure and summon the beast(s) into battle: o Defeat the enemy you wish to conjure o Make doubly sure it's available in the Bestiary* o Have at least one FLASK available o Must have the monster dropped item in possession, check Bestiary. o You must be higher level than the beast you're going to conjure. Go to the Overworld Map open up the Game Menu and choose to "Conjure Beast." Pick your choice of monster and then pick your partner, the higher the rank the better the chances of success, also different ally will result in different conjuration. So far, I'm not able to get anything out of the box. But I do get multiple conjured beasts in one single session with high ranking ally. Now to summon beast in a battle, you must set the monster in the Command Palette just like how you would set magic and items, summoning them works the same way just tap the desired monster and then tap an empty space. There you have it! *Monster(s) not in the Bestiary are not available for conjuration. ----------------------- B A T T L E B A S I C S --------------------------- 01. MOVIING ----------- Tap an empty space in an area to move your character, sliding against the edge of the screen will activate Auto-run. Which is useless. 02. ATTACKING ------------- Tap an enemy to attack, your character will attack it until the enemy is no more, unless you direct him or her to do something else. 03. PERFORMING SKILL/MAGIC OR USING ITEM ---------------------------------------- Bring up the Command Palette by tapping the brown arrow on the lower left and right of the screen, and tap your desired skill, refer to the top screen to view on how to successfully perform the skill. Different skill have different way of doing it. Using item works the same way, tap the item and then tap an ally. 04. SAVING ---------- Saving is important the moment you get a chance to save, do it. In the Over- World Map tap the compass logo on the lower right to bring up the Main Menu, tap the "Red Book" to save your progress. In dungeons if you wish to suspend your game just tap the "opened book" on the upper left and choose the "Blue- Book." Suspend and Cold Hard Save work differently. Suspending your game means you're saving it temporarily, at the Title Screen choose CONTINUE instead of LOAD if you choose to load then your temporary save will be gone. Saving your game means your data is forever there... unless you deleted it or progress and overwrite it with a much recent data. Save Point in this game took the form of an erected (hmm?) blue crystal, when you see one, tap it to save your game. 05. REIHA --------- When using Reiha remember to apply the "Hit N Run" tactic, meaning tap an enemy, scored a hit, RUN! If you stick around and wait for Reiha to recharge to perform her next attack the enemy will have already land a nice hit on Reiha. 06. UPGRADE YOUR HEAL SPELLS ---------------------------- Purchase and upgrade both Heal and Heal Supreme, whenever you can. When upgraded to max level (7) each will recover over 500 worth of HP! 07. "THE HEALING STRATEGY" -------------------------- The AI in this game are decent but they're also determined by Ranking, the higher the rank the more support your ally(ies) will provide. What I like to do in boss battle(s) is to play as Reiha and make her cast Heal on the others. This is a sure-fire way of making everyone's healthy and get their doses of healing spell. If you ran out of SP, quickly run to a corner and use SP CHARGE or TASTY TEA. 08. REGAIN SP FOR FREE! ----------------------- Yes, you can regain/restore your SP for free! How? By just standing around, even if you walk around your SP will regain ever so little. Or you can use SP CHARGE both Aldo and Reiha have it in their skill tree, purchase and up- grade it to the max level whenever you can. ------------------------ M I S C E L L A N E O U S -------------------------- 01. LEVEL UP ------------ The higher your level the better your party overall battle performance will be. It's recommended to at least level up 2 to 3 levels after every Chapter, you'll also earn skill points to be used later for obtaining or upgrading skills. That's killing two birds with one stone. 02. HIDDEN TREASURES -------------------- Hit every pots, crates and vases you see, they may hold valuable healing items or materials for forging your equipments. 03. DELETING SAVED GAME DATA ---------------------------- Hold down your stylus anywhere on an empty space in the save screen for 10 seconds to delete your saved game data. Be warned that once deleted, there's no freakin' way to get it back. 04. "STANDING STILL" -------------------- Holding down any direction on the D-Pad, and tapping anywhere on the screen will allow your character to attack on the spot without ever moving around. 05. "LOCKED SKILL" ------------------ Holding down any direction on the D-Pad then tapping an icon skill/item in the Command Palette will cause the cursor to be locked on that particular skill/item, so you can continue to use that skill or item over and over without having to retap the icon again. This is useful against crazy-ass boss battle. Especially with Reiha, abusing her healing spell without ever having to retap is always good. Here's a step-by-step version: o Set up your Command Palette first o Then open up your Command Palette o Hold down any direction on the D-Pad o Tap a skill of your choice o The skill/icon and cursor will turn blue; it is now locked o Let go of the D-Pad You can walk around, hit vase, pots, etc. If you wish to select another skill just tap that locked skill and you're free to choose again IF you do hold down the D-Pad or either one of the A, X, Y and B buttons your character'll stand on the spot and peform the skill. Play around! 06. SELL STUFF FOR "CASH" ------------------------- Short of gold? Then just sell off old equipments and/or materials, you almost always have abundance of materials in your possession. I sold some of mine and got like 10,000+ worth of Gold. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ W A L K T H R O U G H [01^] I will be using Reiha as my main character, so you'll see this FAQ reflecting her scenario there's not much difference in story for both heroes but I believe certain part will only be revealed when you play as the other character. But don't stress too much, ok! Name your characters whatever you like I'll just keep their default names for this walkthrough. -----------------W A L K T H R O U G H B E G I N S-------------------------- ################################### CHAPTER 00: THE CHANGING WIND [CW#] ################################### After reading the backstory of this game you'll start the Chapter at number 00. Reiha will step out of the house and gives a somewhat "loud" "Ahhhh!" The bottom screen will then show a full portrait of your main character from head to toe: "I've finished cleaning." Nice. If you wish to make haste of the game conversations then hold down B + R but I strongly suggest you DO NOT do that, there's some quirky, witty lines and great voice-acting (though not full) going on, just enjoy every moment! This game don't talk too much anyway. If Reiha is your main character then you'll get a scene with Aldo choking on something it turns out that the guy choked on Reiha's Banna Cake which Reiha planned on keeping for breakfast tomorrow. But since Aldo has already gulped the whole thing down there's nothing to eat anymore. Tough luck! Anyway after that somewhat lengthy conversation (lol! Who was the one that says "this game don't talk too much?") Some Spirits will gather around the heroes, and you'll get two choices: o It might be important o It's nothing As this is my first time playing while making this FAQ I am not sure if this will affect anything in the long run, but be the good guy/girl that you are and choose the first option: "It might be important." --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- O V E R W O R L D M A P / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o----------INFORMATION WINDOW----------o | | | NEW AREA: SPIRIT HILL | | LEVEL UP: NONE | o--------------------------------------o The screen will then switch to the Overworld Map anything marked NEW is where you should be headed to advance the story, the game will also tell you how to navigate the Overworld Map with the Stylus personally I think using the D-Pad is way better. Double tap the NEW area to advance the story. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- S P I R I T H I L L / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Reiha will enjoy the breeze and you'll get a nice artwork of a Banna Berry which looks pretty much like a plumped up, fat tomato, Reiha will then notice some Spirits gathering nearby and attempt to listen to it. You'll learn of the "Janar Stone" and the "Coming of Age" as well as Princess Ayn's Ceremony many events awaits the heroes but the message was cut short when the Wind Spirits got out of control influenced by the Darkness. An enemy will approach you! The in-game tutorials are pretty well-implemented it's not hard to follow so I won't explain anything unless there's a better way of doing things. Look at the top screen you'll see Reiha's stats but it's displayed as bars if you want it to be displayed as number value then press START and then SELECT then press START again to unpause. There you go! When fighting with Reiha I like to apply what I call the "Hit-N-Run" tactic basically you start by aiming from afar and when the enemy starts closing in you run as far as you can and tap the enemy again, rinse and repeat till your adversary(ies) are no more. Reiha is worried for her younger brother but more enemies appear before the Magic Caster, just when things are about to get out of hand, Aldo came to the rescue! You're now able to switch between the two characters, if you want to end this battle fast then using Aldo is recommended but I just stick with Reiha though this is one of the many easier battles in the game. So, don't die! Once you have finished this battle there will be a short conversation, just when you thought it's finished... --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- W I N D S P I R I T / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Not exactly a boss battle, since this guy is in the Beastiary. Yep! Boss do not get an entry in the Beastiary. o---------INFORMATION WINDOW-----------o | | | BOSS: WIND SPIRIT | | RECOMMENDED CHARACTER: REIHA | | REWARD: 1x CLOTH VEST OR CLOTH ROBE* | o--------------------------------------o The Spirits will gather and form a pudgy sprite, Reiha will ask Aldo to run away but Aldo being stubborn refuses to go. You'll get two choices: o Let's fight together! o Don't strain yourself! Pick the first choice! Use Reiha in this fight I find it easier to fight from afar than head on. The game will also introduce you to the COMMAND PALETTE what you need to know about this function is that if you want to use items or skills you'll need to set this up first in the Main Menu. For now put aside all these worries and concentrate on removing the enemy boss! Don't forget to use Banna Berries on yourself (or rather Aldo) when you are low on health! This is another easy fight though I know it gets intimidating when you see the green bar depleting really fast, but don't fret keep those bearries coming and you'll overcome this joke of a battle. *I don't know whether this is a glitch or not, but apparently when I play as Reiha I get different results with the reward. I restarted 3 times and this is what I get: REIHA: 1ST TIME: PURPLE ROBE ICON / CLOTH VEST 2ND TIME: PURPLE ROBE ICON / CLOTH ROBE 3RD TIME: BROWN VEST ICON / CLOTH ROBE The CLOTH VEST from my 1st try changed to CLOTH ROBE, while the 2nd try remain unchanged, the third time it changes to CLOTH ROBE again, is anyone crazy enough to further verify whether this is a glitch or simply just an issue the developers overlooked? My guess is that who you chose to finish the boss will determine the outcome of the reward. If you picked Reiha then no matter what you'll always end up with a CLOTH ROBE, if you picked Aldo you'll get the CLOTH VEST.

The chapter will end with the two of them going to meet Ingiell the next day! You'll get a "TALK TO" screen, just choose to talk to Aldo. You'll get a scene with Reiha standing outside of the house, with so much on her mind... Aldo will join her and they started talking about food! Goodnight. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- C H A P T E R E N D / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ############################ CHAPTER 01: TORN APART [TA#] ############################ Event Areas are marked as a "red box/rectangle" if you want to advance the story then just proceed to the specially marked areas. Blue areas will move you to the next area in a dungeon. They forgotten to mention GREEN AREAS, these are known as "EXIT BOX." Proceed to green areas to exit shop and dungeons. Simpler version: o RED AREAS: AN EVENT WILL OCCUR o BLUE AREAS: PROCEED TO THE NEXT AREA IN A DUNGEON o GREEN AREAS: PROCEED TO EXIT OUT OF A DUNGEON OR SHOP After the short conversation make track to your south and enter the Red Area. Both Reiha and Aldo agree that the ocean is safe to travel, just when you're about to head out Reiha will notice a crate lying around. She'll immediately recognize the mark, it belonged to the Bahal Tribe's, a family of Kascuzsa merchant. You're about to return the crate when the "Owner" appears he'll tell you his sad story, and mention something about "wave of bargains." Head out via the Green Area. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- O V E R W O R L D M A P / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o----------INFORMATION WINDOW----------o | | | NEW AREA: ABADA CANYON, SHOP | | LEVEL UP: NONE | o--------------------------------------o The first thing you should do on the Overworld Map is to set up your party. Here are the changes I've made: ALDO ---- When it comes to skill please decide what weapon you'll be using throughout the whole game. There is no point trying to juggle three weapons, skill points are best used on a single weapon so you can maximize the potential of skills for that particular weapon. For this guide I'll stick with Sword. I purcased "SWORD DANCE." REIHA ----- There's nothing for you to purchase for Reiha at this point of the game, so just equip the CLOTH ROBE you received from from the first boss, the Wind Spirit. COMMAND PALETTE SET UP ---------------------- Now set up your Command Palette, both Aldo and Reiha already have great skills to begin with, if you think Reiha's high ranking magic will make the game too easy for you then there's a solution: don't. freakin'. use. it! ALDO: REIHA: SWORD DANCE HEAL LAND SLASH SPARK SHOT BANNA YOGURT FLAME BURST That's how I set up my palette, however you choose to arrange your palette or whatever skill(s) you wanna use is entirely your choice. Your next course of action would be "The Dolphin Song" A.K.A. shop. Once you are inside you'll be greeted by a cherry voice! Talk to the Merchant (the guy just now) and he'll tell you another sad story of his, lend a listening ear and you'll have to make a choice: o I'll go. o There's no time. Pick the first, might as well have a go at it since it's along the way. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- S I D E Q U E S T 0 1 / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o----------INFORMATION WINDOW----------o | | | NAME: COLLECT 10 IRON ORES | | REWARD: BANNA YOGURT | | LOCATION: ABADA CANYON | o--------------------------------------o Collect 10 IRON ORES and give it to Nemo (yes, the merchant's name is Nemo). Iron Ore can be found in the next map: the "ABADA CANYON." There's abundance of them. Once you've accepted the request, go to the counter and upgrade whatever you can. So much for "wave of bargain?" What crap?! I bought CLOTH VEST (hm...?) for Aldo, and a couple more of Banna Berries you decide the amount. Exit The Dolphin Song and head for the new area: "ABADA CANYON." --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- A B A D A C A N Y O N / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o-----------INFORMATION WINDOW---------o | | | ENEMY(IES): FATOAD | | GRASSRAPTOR | | | | BOSS: "YODOMIES" | | | | TREASURE(S): BANNA COOKIE x2 | | 100 G | | 300 G | o--------------------------------------o "REEIIIIIHAAAA OMGGG!!!" Ok, that was me being stupid. Anyway... A huge tidal wave will hit both of the heroes, the party of two will split. Reiha awakens alone along the shore only to find her younger brother missing, not good... when Reiha walks over to the left a couple of spirits will gather. She hears Aldo's voice saying he's headed for Marbado, and so should you, the message was cut short due to the Spirits' instability. You'll get two choices here: o About the disaster o About everyone else I chose "About the disaster" if you chose the other one, let me know how the conversation turned out, or if there are any funky new events. A new tutorial will pop up telling you about the Main Menu. Absorb whatever you can. Head right if you wish to go to the Overworld Map otherwise just head north for an event. Some purple spirits will gather and swirl around Reiha, she will feel bad for Aldo and wishes to hurry to find her younger brother. You should explore every nook and corner of a dungeon, break every crates, pots and vases you see, most, if not all contain something valuable ranging from berries to gold ($). Head all the way north to a RED AREA to trigger an event. Reiha hears Aldo's voice... but is it really him? She will head north by herself. Tap the glowing crystal to save your game continue north and you'll see a Yodomi! --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- Y O D O M I / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o---------INFORMATION WINDOW-----------o | | | BOSS: YODOMI | | RECOMMENDED CHARACTER: REIHA? | | REWARD: NONE | o--------------------------------------o To make short work of this fight, use Reiha's SPARK SHOT!

Not much strategy to offer here. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- E N D B A T T L E / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Head north to the next area and save your game (the game's pretty generous with saving, huh?) and... north again to finally reunite with your precious baby brother! He will hug you and a musical note will pop up over his head. See how happy he is? Sweet, huh? Both siblings will have a small talk before a group of "Yodomies" appear again! --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- " Y O D O M I E S " / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o---------INFORMATION WINDOW-----------o | | | BOSS: "YODOMIES" | | RECOMMENDED CHARACTER: ALDO | | REWARD: NONE | o--------------------------------------o Same strategy as before, you may use SPARK SHOT if you want, but if you equip Aldo with "LAND SLASH" that skill can really bring down a Yodomi or two. No strategy needed. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- E N D B A T T L E / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Reiha will notice a Banna tree and immediately grab a couple of berries from it! The truth about Reiha is, she's obsessed with Banna berry. The Chapter will end with Aldo having to carry the load of a thousand Banna berries. Aha- hahahahaha. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- C H A P T E R E N D / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ################################# CHAPTER 02: WORLD GONE AWRY [WA#] ################################# The heroes noticed many things aren't the same anymore, due to the Spirits' haywired manners, the flow of the world was distrupted this includes but not limited to geography and landmarks. What seems to be causing this?... I don't really know since I'm not the director. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- O V E R W O R L D M A P / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o---------INFORMATION WINDOW----------o | | | NEW AREA: MARBADO FOREST | | LEVEL UP: ABADA CANYON | o-------------------------------------o Feel free to level up at ABADA CANYON if you'd like. I did some and got both to around level 4 to 5 going to 6. Pretty good workout. If you're not keen then the first thing you should do is head for The Dolphin Song, and give the 10 Iron Ores to Nemo. He will reward you with a BANNA YOGURT. Anyway what's with the "youse?" Another kickass typo? Or is that just how he speaks? Either way there's nothing to buy in store so, don't bother checking. Head out. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- M A R B A D O F R S T / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o----------INFORMATION WINDOW----------o | | | ENEMY(IES): GRASSPIDER | | BIRGUS | | FLOWERSPIDER | | | | BOSS: YODOMIES + OVERSIZED YODOMI | | | | TREASURE(S): FRESH JUICE x2 | | IRON ORE | | WARP WING | | BANNA COOKIE | | 150 G | | 350 G | | BANNA YOGURT | | | | NEW CHARACTER ALERT: NASSAU | o--------------------------------------o Welcome to the lush greenery of the Marbado Forest! Reiha said something but I couldn't make out, must be something stupid? Ignore. Your aim here is to explore the whole forest and try to find the RED AREA. The Grasspiders are pretty strong against magic but weak against physical, the other one Birgus is easily blown away by Reiha's SPARK SHOT. Once you've successfully found the RED AREA, an event will occur where you will see a statue of a cat with a fish in its mouth. Pretty unique huh? Well it also signifies that you're near Marbado. Both siblings will have a short chat and then you'll have to make 2 choices: o Something bad... o Maybe they evacuated I believe the choices you made in-game affects the outcome of your friendship with your ally (Support Rank), so I guess you should pick the second one then "Maybe they evacuated." After you're done, hurry on up and find the next RED AREA. The heroes will find that almost everything's changed, maybe the Spirits are sick? Or maybe something else?... YOOOOOOOODDDDOOOOOOOOOOMIIIIIII?! Whoah! Reiha will be all flustered, but not as much as when her Banna Cakes were eaten. Crazy huh? After that light-hearted conversation there's more exploring for you to do! Do so and make it a point to find the next RED AREA. Did I mention there's a bucketload of treasures to be found? Be sure to grab all of those! You'll find yourself at the Boy's Clubhouse, yeah! After a short conversation a group of "Yodomies" will emerge out of the tent, the heroes will attempt to defeat the "Yodomies" when a bigger one appears! Tough luck?!... not really. "Woah, woah, woah. Aren't you forgetting someone?" "NASSAU!" Yep! A new character, only thing is you will not be able to control Nassau directly, the only way to really affect his action is to raise his Support Rank. Get ready for another crappy boss fight! --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- O V D Y O D O M I / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o---------INFORMATION WINDOW-----------o | | | BOSS: YODOMIES + OVERSIZED YODOMI | | RECOMMENDED CHARACTER: REIHA | | REWARD: 1x FLASK | o--------------------------------------o Another easy boss battle you can aid both powerhouses by using Reiha's Heal whenever necessary. Nassau's high ATK should bring down most of the "Over- sized Yodomi's" health, let your partners do the dirty work while you run around the screen hahaha! --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- E N D B A T T L E / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nassau will tell you that everyone in Marbado is doing fine, except for his granded who still hasn't return yet. Reiha will tell a little bit of a back- story about Ingiell. Soon after you'll get two choices: o Did Ingiell go alone? o What about Ayn's ritual? I picked the second one. You'll get a funnier dialogue. ;P the chapter will end with everyone going for a feast! With times like this, it's important to have a feast? For real? I chose to talk to Aldo. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- C H A P T E R E N D / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ########################### CHAPTER 03: GUARDIANS [GD#] ########################### The three adventurers will have a small talk about Princess Ayn and Ingiell, supposedly where there is Spirits, there's bound to be trouble, usually the place with the most Spirits is the safest place to be, but not now. Worried about Ingiell, Nassau decided to head for the shrine, but not without our two kickass heroes of course! The scene will then switch to an old Kascusza. This is Ingiell, he will immediately sense danger as the Spirits are out of control. Alas being old has its disadvantages, the old guy gasped for a bit. Asthma perhaps? Nassau joined you! Awesome! Back on the Overworld Map. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- O V E R W O R L D M A P / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o---------INFORMATION WINDOW-----------o | | | NEW AREA: SHRINE | | LEVEL UP: MARBADO FOREST | o--------------------------------------o As of right now my current level for both heroes is 7, I went to the Marbado Forest to level up to at least level 8 (I hate odd numbers), but uh... this is not an issue with odd numbers but I recommend for you to train a bit. How far you want to push the envelope is up to you. Now head on over to The Dolphin Song to do a side quest for our dear Nemo. Talk to him and you'll get the usual two options: o Okay. o We're kind of busy... Pick the first, leave the shop, and Marbado Forest will have a new marking called "EVENT." Head on over. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- S I D E Q U E S T 0 2 / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o---------INFORMATION WINDOW-----------o | | | NAME: RESCUE THE STORE CLERK | | REWARD: CLUELESS 2 | | LOCATION: MARBADO FOREST | o--------------------------------------o Basically what you need to do here is to escort the Store Clerk out of the forest, it's an easy task. The only tip I can provide you with, is, don't bother killing all the enemies (unless you want the EXP points). Just hack away any of those who gets in your way, make haste for the exit and you should be ok. Heal the clerk whenever necessary. Don't die ok?! Once you're done with the side quest, go back to The Dolphin Song to purchase new armors for your heroes. WOODEN PLATE for Aldo and TOUGH TUNIC for Reiha, no weapons to purchase... as you can see I don't really bother buying any healing items as they're quite expensive and, besides, you'll get a bucket- load of them when you "crack" open vases/pots/crates in dungeons, also not forgetting Reiha's healing magics. My advice is for you to save your Gold for equipments instead! I did purchase some Banna Berries during my early game- play but not anymore. Leave the store. It's time to purchase and/or upgrade your skills: ALDO ---- UPGRADED SWORD DANCE (LV 2) UPGRADED CHAIN ATTACK (LV 3) PURCHASED & UPGRADED SWORD MASTER (LV 1 > 2) REIHA ----- UPGRADED SPARK SHOT (LV 2) UPGRADED HEAL x2 (LV 3) PURCHASED BOTH AQUA & FIRE SHOT (BOTH LV 1) PURCHASED BOTH AERO & EARTH SHOT (BOTH LV 1) x2 means I upgraded a particular skill 2 times. Those are the skills I've purchased and upgraded, you don't have to follow me your game, your style. But I suggest you upgrade your HEAL spell and purchase all ELEMENTAL SHOTS. Setting up your Command Palette: *New Addition. ALDO ---- SWORD DANCE LAND SLASH CHAIN ATTACK* REIHA ----- HEAL FLAME BURST SPARK SHOT AERO SHOT* EARTH SHOT* Go to the Party Select screen and tap Nassau. Save your game! Once you've finished setting up your party, make the Shrine your next stop. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- S H R I N E / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o----------INFORMATION WINDOW----------o | | | ENEMY(IES): ROCK TURTLE | | EARTH D'UHM | | SKY D'UHM | | SKY SPIRIT | | | | BOSS: D'UHM + "YODOMIES" | | | | TREASURE(S): BANNA YOGURT | | 200 G | | FLASK | | WARP WING | | FRESH JUICE | | 500 G | | TASTY TEA | | | | NEW CHARACTER ALERT: --- | o--------------------------------------o The wild Spirits will make Aldo feel sort of creepy, Reiha will be lost in thought, when Nassau asks her about Ingiell you'll get 2 options: o He should be all right. o ...Yeah. Pick "...Yeah." Reiha will be reassured by Nassau that it will take more than just Spirits to bring the old geezer down. But Reiha is still worried because nothing like this has ever happened before. Nassau agrees and the party will head into the Shrine. The Rock Turtle here is able to hide inside its shell making your physical attack amounts to nothing, only attack it when it's out, they're also weak against Wind Element, so Reiha's AERO SHOT work well against them. It seems to me that the first room is infested by Rock Turtles only. The RED AREA is easily found to the north of the room. Both Reiha and Aldo will be surprised by a new enemy. Nassau told them it's just a D'uhm, they're powered by Spirits to protect the Shrine against humans and the Yodomi. But since it's powered by Spirits... won't that be a problem? Considering how unstable the Spirits are? This will only make the D'uhm attack anything that get in its way. And no. This is not a boss fight, though the way the camera zooms in kind of suggest that a big fight is coming up, the D'uhm is just another enemy for you to hack upon. Just like the Rock Turtle, the Earth D'uhm is weak against Wind Element. So Reiha's AERO SHOT work wonders here, you'll also encounter the Sky Spirit and Sky D'uhm who are extremely weak against Earth, "EARTH SHOT" is ideal an alternate offensive magic would be AERO SHOT make your way to the next area containing a Save Crystal, and save your game. In the next room there will be a huge RED AREA box, just proceed into it. Reiha will notice something lying on the floor... It's Ingiell's wooden charm! What is it doing here? Nassau realizing how beat up the charm is be- lieves that his grandfather could be in big trouble! Hurry on up to Ingiell's rescue. This room got a lot of D'uhm roaming around, just abuse Reiha's AERO/EARTH SHOT to easily remove the D'uhms off the screen. The same thing can be said about the next area, you should be leveling up a good number, I got my heroes to about level 10. Once you've reached a room with a Save Crystal, you know that you're almost done with the Shrine. Take this opportunity to restore your SP by hanging around and make Reiha heal the party. Once you're fully prepared save your game, and proceed to the next area. The group will have a small discussion about Ayn, like where will she be sleeping if she stays in this room and stuff like that. As you were talking Aldo realized that there's no sign of Ayn or Ingiell, just when you're about to look around you saw a D'uhm and a couple of "Yodomies." They look like they're badly injured? Well, that's because Ingiell is fighting 'em. The party will run to Ingiell's side after a small talk you'll be facing the enemies. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- P R T C T I N G I E L L / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o---------INFORMATION WINDOW-----------o | | | BOSS: D'UHM + "YODOMIES" | | RECOMMENDED CHARACTER: REIHA | | REWARD: NONE | o--------------------------------------o I strongly suggest for you to control Reiha instead of Aldo (if you've been using him all this while). Let both Nassau and your younger brother do the attacking while you keep Ingiell and everybody safe by abusing Reiha's healing spell. The D'uhm will almost always try to chase Ingiell around, so keep following the old guy, so you can easily heal him whenever necessary. This is another easy battle. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- E N D B A T T L E / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Once this is over, Ingiell will immediately thank both Aldo and Reiha, Nassau got a dressing down from his grandfather for bringing the young heroes into the Shrine... but was countered by Nassau, both ended up apologizing and the topic of Ayn will pop up. The Princess is in The Throne for the ritual, but since The Throne is where the Spirit King resides this means that the place is the most purest of place for Spirits... that would mean that it is also the most dangerous place to be given the current situation with the Spirits. Cut to the chase after much chatting everyone will agree to go save Ayn. The Chapter will end. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- C H A P T E R E N D / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ #################################### CHAPTER 04: THE PRINCESS' WISH [PW#] #################################### The chapter starts with Aldo worrying about the Darkness, he fears that the Darkness might be too strong for him to resist, you, as Reiha will have to make a choice: o I'll bring you back o I'll become stronger I think there's no right or wrong answer here, I've tried both and both ended up pretty well. The only thing about the second option (I'll become stronger) is, that, Reiha sounded slightly "boastful" for lack of a better term. So, I picked the first. Nassau will urge both heroes to put aside those worries, besides, this is not the time to be all dilly-dally since Ayn is all alone by herself at the throne. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- O V E R W O R L D M A P / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o----------INFORMATION WINDOW----------o | | | NEW AREA: THRONE | | LEVEL UP: SHRINE | o--------------------------------------o A new area will open up, but your first stop should be The Dolphin Song, buy some new equipments for your heroes. I bought "CARVED ROD" for Reiha, and "FERRITE EDGE" for Aldo. There's nothing else to purchase. Exit the shop. Now to purcahse and/or upgrade some skills: REIHA ----- UPGRADED HEAL x2 UPGRADED BOTH AERO AND EARTH SHOT x2 PURCHASED SKY RES. In the next map you'll be facing some Sky-elemental enemies, so you'll need SKY RES. for Reiha to guard her against any Sky magic/attack and upgrade both AERO and EARTH SHOT two (2) times for greater damage. ALDO ---- UPGRADED SWORD DANCE UPGRADED CHAIN ATTACK UPGRADED SWORD MASTER x2 That's it for Aldo. Any additional skills you may want to purchase is entirely up to you! I won't hold you back... I mean, can I really do that? Set up your Command Palette: REIHA ----- HEAL FLAME BURST SPARK SHOT AERO SHOT EARTH SHOT ALDO ---- NO CHANGE Alright! You may want to level up at the SHRINE? I did some training, other- wise, just head for the new area.

You'll have to make two choices (this is beginning to get slightly annoying...): o Make her eat o Make her sleep I picked the first, Reiha will suggest Banna Cake, and Nassau will say some- thing about a quick "pick-me-up" why not I suggest some hot and steamy pizza? Topped with mozerella cheese and a generous serving of mushrooms with a dash of pepper? That'll be superbly awesome, right? Hot damn! Sheesh! Well, get a move on! The Hauspiders here are nothing to worry about, they're weak to physical attack mostly. You've met the Sky D'uhm before some EARTH SHOT will decimate them in no time. Two new D'uhm make their appearance here: Light and Aqua, weak against Earth and Sky respectively. Be sure to check all corners in every room, if possible make your character run along the wall so the map on the top screen will "open up," when you think you're stuck, believe me, you're not! Check every room. You know you are in the right direction when you chance upon a Save Point, so? Save your game! Go through another room, before ya encounter another Save Point, this is the real deal for an event will occur in the next room. You will see Ayn perfor- ming some kind of magic... she is trying to calm the Spirits. You'll get a nice portrait of the character! Ayn's magics failed to pacify the Spirits instead a huge mama octopus was born. The two heroes will run to the Princess aaaannndddd you know it! A fight is inevitable... --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- K R A K E N / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o---------INFORMATION WINDOW-----------o | | | BOSS: KRAKEN | | RECOMMENDED CHARACTER: REIHA | | REWARD: POWER BAND | o--------------------------------------o All three of your ally will rush to the boss to attack it, your job here is to keep their health in check, Ayn will occasionally perform her healing magic but don't depend on her too much she's liable to get hit too (and die), so control Reiha and abuse her Heal spell as much as you can! Keep this up and the giant octopus will be no match for you. Another easy battle won. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- E N D B A T T L E / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- After a fight, Reiha, Aldo and Ayn will attempt to calm the Spirits down watch a spectacular (hahaha) scene where the three sprites shine into awesomeness. They succeeded in pacifying the Spirits... after much talking Nassau suggested to everyone that we investigate what is casuing all of these for fear that people like Ayn and Aldo will be greatly affected. Mainly because: 1) Ayn is a Priestess so her spiritual power is strong making her susceptible to be corrupted by the darkness, 2) Aldo is a Summon Beast whose affinity with Spirits is pretty much strong too. You'll get two choices: o Find out what's happening o Ingiell might help I picked the first choice, everyone will agree to delve further into the case you'll get a "TALK TO" screen, talk to anyone you like, I chose to speak with Nassau. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- C H A P T E R E N D / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ############################## CHAPTER 5: DOMAIN OF MAN [DM#] ############################## Ayn will join you in this Chapter.

You can either buy BANNA YOGURT over the counter or give one of yours, just be sure you have spare BANNA YOGURT in your "backpack." And no, Store Clerk it's perfectly alright to ask for something strange, and besides, asking for food isn't strange especially if you're broke. Hm... I don't know if you realize? But if you wish to know more about the game (battling, tips, etc) then there's a "Summon Night know-it-all" on the left side of the shop. Talk to her to waste more time. Go to the counter and talk to Nemo, this time instead of buying weapons, I suggest you create one (or two) tap the hammer icon, and pick HARD BLADE for Aldo and METAL ROD for Reiha, create AQUAPYR RING for both heroes and don't forget FEATHER ROBE for Reiha and STURDY VEST for Aldo. That should do it! Leave the store and go to AMNIO'S PASSAGE. Oh, right I forgot! We're already in Chapter 5 have you guys tried conjuring any beast yet? You should try making one.

Reiha will attempt to ease Ayn's worries, and of course you'll get three amazing life-changing choices: o We're here together o Honestly, I'm scared too o Seriously, I don't care Haha, you don't get a third choice. It'd be nice though. Be the nice chap that you are and choose "We're here together" after soothing Ayn's heart, Nassau will complain about his rotting hair the group of 3 will advance into the passage. You should get a fair warning from Reiha "watch out for the poison marshes" you won't be inflicted with any sort of Poison Status, but the marshes will gradually drain your HP but if you ask me, right? I say to hell with it :D just trek along them it'll feel like you're dragging your feet through mud. Awesome! Safe to say majority of the enemies you encounter here are all susceptible to Wind magic. When you finally reached the RED AREA, you'll see a huge boss it'll will scream and so will Ayn, Nassau urges Ayn to pipe down for fear of the monster finding them. The funny thing is the three of you are out in the open even if Ayn didn't scream the boss will still find your rotten hair Nassau! --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- O G S / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o---------INFORMATION WINDOW-----------o | | | BOSS: OVERGROWN SPIDER | | RECOMMENDED CHARACTER: REIHA OR ALDO | | REC. THIRD PARTY MEMBER: AYN | | REWARD: POWER BAND | o--------------------------------------o You can either control Reiha or Aldo, if you wanna play it safe then use Reiha (heal, heal, heal!), if you want this battle to end quickly then switch to Aldo. Ayn will most of the time aid the party with healing magic so HP is not really a problem here, in fact this fight is never a problem to begin with. What the hell? Just bash him good and he will go down in no time. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- E N D B A T T L E / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- You're reaching the Human land of Alchein to meet Uncle Mardin. The chapter will close with a worried Reiha. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- C H A P T E R E N D / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ########################### CHAPTER 6: THE HERMIT [HT#] ########################### Everyone will discuss about this Sir Mardin, seems like Ingiell trusts him a lot so does Aldo and Reiha, Ayn as well. Nassau as always have a lot of issues with trusting humans, so a lot of jabber going on, and then you get two choices: o Nassau has it right. o Listen to Ayn. I picked the second one. Reiha will stand up for Mardin and Ayn hopes he hasn't move anywhere else... The Dolphin Song will disappear and a brand new icon appears: "MAP CHANGE." You're stepping into Humans territory. I switched Ayn with Nassau (strongly recommended). Double tap on MAP CHANGE to proceed with the storyline. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- A L C H E I N / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o---------INFORMATION WINDOW----------o | | | NEW AREA: DIONA DESERT | | LEVEL UP: AMNIO'S PASSAGE | o-------------------------------------o The Dolphin Song will reappear there's nothing to purchase there. I equip Reiha with TERRA RING, while Aldo is equipped with POWER BAND. Proceed to DIONA DESERT and an event will occur... wait! I can't remember where the hell I got that TERRA RING though? --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- D I O N A D E S E R T / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o----------INFORMATION WINDOW----------o | | | ENEMY(IES): SAND CRAB | | CAMARON | | CREVETTE | | FIRE SPIRIT | | | | BOSS: KRAKEN | | | | TREASURE(S): GOLDEN ORE x2 | | BANNA YOGURT | | ENER-Z DRINK x2 | | TASTY TEA | | | | BRING ALONG: NASSAU | | | | NEW CHARACTER ALERT: MARDIN | o--------------------------------------o Both heroes are happy to see Knuckle Rock for it signifies that they're clo- ser to meeting Uncle Mardin! It's time to get a move on. Most of the enemies here are either weak against Water or Sky Element, so just equip Reiha with the respective shots. Once you've found the RED AREA you'll meet two new NPC: Caraway & Saffron. They're just dumb people. Save at the crystal and proceed further into the desert. Work your way around the maze and you should stumble upon another save crystal, make your last minute preparation here before proceeding. I hope you have already purchased and added SP CHARGE to Reiha's Command Palette, don't forget TASTY TEA as well, you may want to equip Aldo with ATTACK UP?! Remember you can edit the Palette anytime but if you want to purchase or upgrade any skills you gotta go to the Overworld Map. Make doubly sure everyone's HP/SP are fully healed. Save your game and pro- ceed on ahead. You will get a nice portrait of Uncle Mardin... I was expecting some old gee- zer like Ingiell?! You'll get a flashback, a little history about how every- thing came to be with Reiha and Aldo. After quite a bit of verbal exchange, Mardin will challenge you to a fight! --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- M A R D I N / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- o---------INFORMATION WINDOW-----------o | | | BOSS: MARDIN | | RECOMMENDED CHARACTER: REIHA | | REC. THIRD PARTY MEMBER: NASSAU | | REWARD: NONE | o--------------------------------------o Since Mardin is a physical type character he will charge at you to inflict damage. Instead of relying on Aldo to fight control Reiha instead. Try your best to stay away from Mardin but make an effort to stay close to both Aldo and Nassau. As both guys are busy whacking Mardin you should busy yourself with healing the rest! If you're ran out of SP, go as far away as you can and use TASTY TEA or SP CHARGE once you're set go back and provide healing magic to the others. Rinse and repeat and this battle will be over (it's quite a long battle) it's ok to die on the first try I died a couple of times before I actually win. Oh! I forgot to mention Mardin's is almost invincible against magic, don't bother shooting him with any Elemental shots. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- E N D B A T T L E / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- By defeating Mardin you've convinced the Ex-Summoner that you're strong and are able to fend for yourselves. Nassau's being the unreasonable Kascuza that he is refuses to trust Mardin. Mardin will explain to you about a couple of things and you'll get two options here: o The reason he was exiled o What's wrong with Spirits Both options will net you the same kind of conversation, so choose whatever you will. Mardin will further explain that both Reiha and Aldo were involved in the Summoner's top-secret project. Read on to find out more... The chapter will close with everyone staying over at Mardin's. This is quite a short chapter. I chose to speak with Mardin. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- / S U M M O N N I G H T: T W I N A G E -- C H A P T E R E N D / --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ############################### CHAPTER 7: SHIFTING IDEAS [SI#] ############################### ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ E X T R A S [03^] A comprehensive section detailing various aspects of the game, you'll see a full list of skills, items, equipments plus a whole lot of others.

This section is for those of you who wishes to just view the strategies without having to read the wall of text in this guide (I know I talked too much). Anyway, you must be thinking why bother creating this section? I know boss fights in this game are a joke it's not even funny to begin with. But some bosses like MARDIN and ZARHAM are no pushover, so I provided some better tips to overcome them. If you have any out of this world strategies you wanna share with other players then send me an e-mail and I'll add your contribution with full credits. Don't forget your kickass name or alias, please make it short, simple and sweet I won't accept **~~12*dArK_H0lY_PrInzess* of Hope *& drEamZ12~~** as an alias, give me those crap and I'll replace it with "Miss Potato." IN PROGRESS. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ################### FUNNY MOMENTS [FM$] ################### This game has its moments, most of them are memorable and some are really hilarious like the one scene where Aldo dressed up as a girl, priceless. I've compiled here what I think is funny, if I missed out any scenes, dialogues or moments, and you'd like me to add it to this section then just drop me an e- mail! Thanks! 01. HEEEY! WAIT FOR ME!! ------------------------ If you leave your other party members too far behind and proceed to the next area without them, they'll scream for you to wait for them. 02. ALDO DRESSING UP AS A GIRL ------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ M I S C E L L A N E O U S [04^] You'll find things that'll enrich you about the game such as the ever-so-awe- some FAQ, the Links section and so on. Please take the time to look through especially the FAQ, chances are, your burning hot questions may have already been answered. ######################### QUESTIONS & ANSWERS [QA+] ######################### Got a question? Send it in, my e-mail address can be found both at the top and at the bottom of this guide. Please do take the time to read through the FAQ. Q: How old are you? A: 23 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Q: Help!! Mardin's killing me! A: I did provide some strategy for overcoming Mardin. But, yes Mardin is a jerk and I'm surprised at the sudden increase in difficulty... all I can say is: play as Reiha and heal as much as you can. It's ok to die on your first try leveling up prior to this also helps a bit. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Q: God why won't you accept ~~12*dArK_H0lY_PrInzess of Hope & drEamZ12~~** as an internet alias? People are trying to be creative? A: Creative my ass. They're just being stupid, and asking me these kind of questions is even stupider than stupid. Go away! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Q: This game is too easy, is there any trick to make it hard? A: No idea. I do read at the forums that many people who've played the Japa- nese version finds it awful that the US version has been dumbed down. But then again this game was aimed towards the young ones (10 years and below) hence is why I think they reduced the difficulty. Hmmm... I take back the "No idea" I said earlier. How about you go try playing a Low-Level Game? don't upgrade your equipments and limit your skills usage? I bet this'll make the game much harder for you? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ####################### GLITCHES & ISSUES [GI+] ####################### Not limited to glitches and issues, it could be in-game typos, graphical issues, or any other funky stuff that happened in game. If you discovered anything that I do not have here, then please e-mail me about it, and I'll add it here to the list. Leave behind your name or alias so I can properly credit you. Thank you! TYPOS ----- Minor issue but they spelt fugitive as "fugative" this happened in Chapter 8 or 9 when Aldo dressed up as a girl to avoid the Summoners. They were stopped halfway through when 2 Summoners approaches them for questioning. GRAPHICAL --------- In chapter 6: "The Hermit" during the scene where Mardin brought both Aldo and Reiha to Ingiell, his character portrait does not have any "Summonite" attached to the side of his head, but his sprite shows that he has both "Summonite" on. BESTIARY -------- It seems to me that the Bestiary is kind of messed up, some of the sprites are confusing especially the "D'uhm series." There's a lot more but I don't have time to really sit down and list them out, I'll get back to this when I am more free. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ########### LINKS [LI+] ########### A wealth of links for your reading pleasure.

Where subject is concerned please insert something relevant, also please allow me time to reply as I do not have internet access at home (yeah it freakin' sucks) I can't reply as soon as I would like. I don't mind e-mail chat my only annoyance are people who can't use proper English (grammar wise) I be frank with you, I'll just delete those. Typos are ok everyone make mistakes, my advice is to double check, and then you hit send. If you're going to be critical please be constructive, calling my FAQ stupid and useless without a note on how to improve is dumb, since I never forced you to read my guide anyway, you can always go read someone's elses, be my guest. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ########## BLOG [FB!] ########## FAQ Blogging! Well, I do have a Livejournal account but I rarely log in there but if you wish to add me as a friend on that site, then e-mail me your URL and I'll personally add you. Otherwise, you don't have to read this, these are just random ramblings. Haha. WHOA! I HAD A BLAST // 4:34 AM 13/06/2008 ----------------------------------------- Haha! Never knew this game could be this good! I invested about 3 hours last night purchasing and upgrading a lot of skills. Hmm... the gameplay reminds me a bit of that MMPORPG game called "Ragnarok?" Is that it? Anyway Right now I'm at Chapter 8 but I am playing on a clean slot for this guide and have just reached Chapter 3. I've also discovered this weird ass glitch or some- thing like that with the reward we earn in Chapter 00. It went something like this: *I don't know whether this is a glitch or not, but apparently when I play as Reiha I get different results with the reward. I restarted 3 times and this is what I get: REIHA: 1ST TIME: PURPLE ROBE ICON / CLOTH VEST 2ND TIME: PURPLE ROBE ICON / CLOTH ROBE 3RD TIME: BROWN VEST ICON / CLOTH ROBE The CLOTH VEST from my 1st try changed to CLOTH ROBE, while the 2nd try remain unchanged, the third time it changes to CLOTH ROBE again, is anyone crazy enough to further verify whether this is a glitch or simply just an issue the developers overlooked? My guess is that who you chose to finish the boss will determine the outcome of the reward. If you picked Reiha then no matter what you'll always end up with a CLOTH ROBE, if you picked Aldo you'll get the CLOTH VEST. My guess anyway, otherwise, no biggie! :) Yar! I copy and paste :D har, har, har. Anyone got any idea? -/- BOUGHT THE GAME // 5:01 PM 10/06/2008 ------------------------------------- I grabbed a copy yesterday and invested about a couple of hours in, it's good glad I purchased it, yeah. I wasn't too keen about Summon Night cause I dislike that weird "left to right, right to left" battle system they had on the GBA, until a friend showed me a couple of vids on Youtube. ;) Since GameFAQs lacking some SN:TA guide I decided to create one of my own I hope this turns out well *crosses fingers*. -/- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ####################### FAMOUS LAST WORDS [LW+] ####################### As of writing this FAQ I am still in the progress of completing this guide so this is not much of a goodbye, but since I'm already here I might as well say my piece. To all of you who have chosen to read my guide THANK YOU! To those who have contributed in one way or another THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
