Hi guys...I am atomaster. My name is Anirudh and I am from India. I play a 
variety of games and like mostly RPG games. I have played games on the PC
and from the consoles like DS, GBA, GBC, SNES and many other.

But the unfortunate thing is that I played all of them on emus. Here in India,
especially where I live, we dont get any DSs or GBAs. So I may have missed
the real fun of these games.

But I don't much mind this. Can't do anything. Can I?
Some of the games which I have played are 

- P C   G A M E S 
 
Age of Empires, Hulk, Spiderman, Halo, Project IGI, Sim city
Need for Speed U2 etc.

- G B A   G A M E S 

Pokemon Sapphire[My first GBA game]
Pokemon Red, Blue, Silver, Ruby, Emerald
Urbz Sims in the city, Lord of the Rings TTT,
Harry Potter OOP, One piece, Naruto, Beyblade GR etc.

- D S   G A M E S 

Pokemon D/P and PMD Time/Darkness, BEN 10
Naruto, My Sims, Star Wars the force unleashed,
Animal Crossing Wild World etc.

AND MANY MORE...

This is my second Walkthrough. But it can be called first since my "first" one
was an incomplete one. It was for Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time.
But I hope "this" one will be complete.

In this walkthrough I have included all the conversation of the game so it is
much like a game script too. I also warn the readers that this is 'NOT' 
spoiler free. Rather this is a huge spoiler if you are not careful.

Players will initially take on the role of Overlord Laharl, a young demon prince
who has just woken from a two-year long nap and finds out that his father, who
was the king, has passed away. In order to regain his rightful title as King of
the Netherworld, Laharl sets off on a demonic adventure, but must do so with a
back stabbing servant, love stupid angel, and a few disgruntled penguins who
are looking for trouble.

A Button -      Talk to characters or examine items in the castle, proceed 
                through text, choose a character on the battlefield, or make
                a selection in menus.

B Button -      Exit out of menus, cancel selections, and proceed through text.
                Delete letters on the name-entering screen.

X Button -      Opens the main menu in the castle and on the battlefield,
                although the menus have different options.  Sorts items in
                the Item Bag and Storage menus, and unequips items on the
                Character Equipment menu, which sends them to the Item Bag or
                Warehouse.  Move characters on the battlefield while
                attempting to perform a skill.

Y Button -      No function in the castle or most menus.  On the Item Info and
                Character Info menus, it switches the information show in a
                cycle.  Heals everyone at the same time at the hospital.  Hold
                this button down and press L to zoom in or out during battles.
                Hold this button down and press R to cycle through your base
                panel and your deployed characters during battle.  Hold this
                button down while the cursor is on a character and press a
                direction on the D.Pad (not the control stick) to change the
                direction the character is facing.

L/R Buttons -   Scroll through character and item lists on various menus a page
                at a time; L scrolls up and R scrolls down.  Advance or go back
                a space on the name-entering screen.  Switch between characters
                on various screens

Start Button -  Send items from the Item Bag to the Storage when using the
                Item command on a battlefield.

Select Button - Turns Geo Panels on or off on battlefields.

 |         Well, if that's the case...there's only one thing left to do. |
 |                                                                       |
 |Laharl : ...What fool dares awaken me, the great Laharl?               |
 |                                                                       |
 |Etna   : Prince! I am glad you're still alive.                         | 
 |                                                                       |  
 |Laharl : Who said I was dead?                                          | 
 |         I was just taking a nap.                                      |
 |         Anyways...                                                    |
 |         Why are all those weapons behind you?                         |
 |                                                                       | 
 |Etna   : Well, I was having a hard time waking you up...               | 
 |                                                                       |
 |Laharl : Are you sure you weren't trying kill me instead?              |
 |                                                                       |
 |Etna   : No...Ah...I mean, yes.                                        |
 |         I just wanted to wake you up.                                 |
 |                                                                       |
 |Laharl : Hmph...whatever.                                              |
 |         ...So, what is it?                                            | 
 |         You better have a good reason for waking me up.               |  
 |                                                                       | 
 |Etna   : Oh, yeah.                                                     | 
 |         Big news. Your father, King Krichevskoy, has died.            | 
 |                                                                       |  
 |Laharl : He what...!?                                                  |
 |         When !?                                                       |
 |                                                                       |
 |Etna   : Two years ago.                                                |
 |                                                                       |
 |Laharl : ...Wait a second.                                             |
 |         So you're telling me that I've been sleeping for over         |
 |         two years?                                                    |
 |                                                                       |
 |Etna   : Yup.                                                          |
 |                                                                       |
 |Laharl : Yup...!?                                                      |   
 |         Why didn't you wake me up earlier!?                           |
 |                                                                       |
 |Etna   : Excuse me, but what do you think I've been doing all this     |
 |         time?                                                         |
 |         The Netherworld has gone to hell while you were sleeping.     |
 |         It's not my fault if some other demon steals the title of     |
 |         Overlord.                                                     |
 |                                                                       |
 |Laharl : What...?                                                      |
 |         Have they forgotten whose title they are trying to steal?     |
 |         Hmhmhm...                                                     |
 |         How bold of them!                                             |
 |         I shall show no mercy...for, I am Laharl, the rightful        |
 |         heir to the throne!                                           |
 |         Haaahahaha!!!!                                                |
 |                                                                       |
 |Etna   : Your humble vassal, Etna, will accompany you.                 |
 |                                                                       |
 |                   Etna joined your party!                             |
 |                                                                       |

At last you gain control of the prince and the game starts...Its in the same
room in which Etna had awakened you from your deep slumber. You  can check out
the weapons behind you, but it'll be of no use.

So exit the room from the exit in the botton left corner. As you come into the
next room, you'll see a big throne. Go to its back side and press A. You'll be
asked if you want to press the switch and choose YES. If you press A again,
it'll say that you have pressed it too hard and its stuck and broken. But never
mind that and descend the steps.

You'll see some more vassals of your father, the king. Talk to them for some
small chuckles.

1) Manty  : That's just like you, Prince, taking a two-year nap.
   Laharl : I only planned on napping for about ten days...
            Hmmm... Something's not right.

2) Goleck : All the royal vassals left the castle shortly after the king died.
   Laharl : Even with me still around?
   Etna   : Well, you were sleeping. They must have forgotten about you.

3) Dratti : Oh well, looks like I wasted my time digging that grave for you.
   Laharl : I'll put You in that grave instead!

Follow the blue carpet and exit the room. You'll then be in a corridor. You can
go either way. If you move right, you'll come across the Music Shop and he says
that it is under construction and asks you to come back later. 

Anyway, get down the stairs and you'll see more vassals. Touch the spear like
thing for weapon tutorials.

1)Weapon - Fists
2)Weapon - Sword
3)Weapon - Spear
4)Weapon - Axe
5)Weapon - Bow
6)Weapon - Gun
7)Weapon - Staff

I'll list all the tutorials in the same order.

 |Brawlers rely primarily on their fists as weapons.                        |
 |                                                                          |
 |Normal attacks have a high hit percentage and slightly higher chance of   |
 |Team Attack than other weapons.                                           |
 |                                                                          |
 |The special techniques learned with fists are short-range and are of small|
 |Area Of Effect.                                                           |
 |                                                                          |
 |But, many will allow you to knock enemies into different positions.       |
 |                                                                          |

 |                                                                          |
 |< T U T O R I A L :   W E A P O N   -   S W O R D  >                      |
 |                                                                          |
 |A sword is a typical weapon for battle.                                   |
 |                                                                          |
 |Normal Attacks with a sword do not have any distinctive characteristics.  |
 |                                                                          |
 |However, the Special Techniques learned with a sword vary greatly, so they|
 |will be useful in many situations.                                        |
 |                                                                          |
 |In general, they are easy to use, but not very powerful and require a lot |
 |of SP.                                                                    |
 |                                                                          |

 |< T U T O R I A L :   W E A P O N   -   S P E A R >                       |
 |                                                                          |
 |The spear is another popular weapon.                                      |
 |                                                                          |
 |While normal attacks with a spear are a bit weak, you have the advantage  |
 |of being able to attack from two panels away.                             |
 |                                                                          |
 |The special techniques learned with a spear generally have a short range, |
 |but the area of effect varies.                                            |
 |                                                                          |
 |Furthermore, some techniques allow you to change your position.           |
 |                                                                          |

 |< T U T O R I A L :   W E A P O N   -   A X E >                           |
 |                                                                          |
 |The axe is a difficult weapon to use.                                     |
 |                                                                          |
 |Normal attacks have a low hit percentage, but deal major damage when they |
 |do hit.                                                                   |
 |                                                                          |
 |The special techniques learned with an Axe have a short range and can be  |
 |used only against a single enemy.                                         |
 |                                                                          |
 |It may seem restrictive, but since its limitations are clear, you could   |
 | say an Axe is easy to use.                                               |
 |                                                                          |
 |Also, when stronger special techniques are available, the chances of      |
 |lowering an opponent&#39;s DEF are high.                                      |
 |                                                                          |

 |Bows are long range weapons that archers specialize in.                   |
 |                                                                          |
 |Normal attacks deal damage according to the formula:                      |
 |        (ATK/2) + (HIT/2) = Total Damage.                                 |
 |                                                                          |
 |The special techniques learned with a bow have long range and can affect  |
 |single or multiple targets.                                               |
 |                                                                          |
 |However, their restrictions of area of affect and required action space   |
 |will take some time to get used to.                                       |

 |Guns have the longest range out of all the weapons.                       |

 |Staff are weapons that can boost the power of your magic.                 |
 |                                                                          | 
 |There is nothing special about doing normal attacks with a staff, and     |
 |there are no special techniques to learn, either.                         |
 |                                                                          |

 |improving your weapon mastery of staffs.                                  |
 |                                                                          | 
 |The experience you have earned using casting spells will also effect the  |
 |range and area of effect of your magic.                                   |

 |Staffs are most effective when used by characters specializing in magic.  |
 |                                                                          |

Thats the end of the weapon tutorials.

You can talk to the other vassals or demons, whatever you call them.

1)Ghoss  : Good morning, Prince.
           How are you feeling?

  Laharl : Couldn&#39;t be worse.
           My body feels really stiff from sleeping too much.
  
  Etna   : WHy don&#39;t you warm up on the "Tutorial" Map?
           Go see the dimensional Gatekeeper and she&#39;ll send you there.



2)Gargo  : In order to prevent intruders, I have closed all the gates.
           Please talk to the "Dimensional Gatekeeper" if you&#39;d like to
           leave the castle.

  Laharl : Yeah, whatever...
           You probably just didn&#39;t want to watch the gate.
  

So, head up the stairs on the left and move into the next room. Its gonna be
the room most frequently visited by you, since it contains almost everything
like: Hospital, Shop, Dark Assembly, Item World and most importantly, the
Dimensional Gatekeeper.

As you go down the stairs, you&#39;ll be taken into a brief tutorial about Items.

 |< T U T O R I A L >                                                       |

 |Items can be purchased at the "Rosen Queen Co., Netherworld Branch".      |
 |                                                                          | 
 |Each character can equip upto 4 items. A character can equip 1 weapon and |
 |3 other items, such as armor.                                             |
 |                                                                          | 
 |Monsters can only equip weapons from the "Monster Only Weapons" category. |
 |                                                                          | 
 |It is best to equip a weapon that suit&#39;s a character&#39;s inherent strengths.|
 |                                                                          |

Then go forward and take your time observing the room and talking to various
people there. They will tell whatever you need to know. And remember whatever
you have seen: the shops, hospital, item world, dark congress etc.,

To the south of the shop, you&#39;ll notice three persons.

1)Pleinair : The assembly is currently not in session.

2)Kanna    : 
             There are many features in this game, like the Dark Assembly and
             the Item World.
             Ask the appropriate people for more info.
             Don&#39;t worry, you can still beat the game with minimal knowledge.

3)Save shop: I keep Netherworld&#39;s records...
             Here, you may view the history of Netherworld.
             If you get an item, it will be recorded and won&#39;t disappear, even
             if you get rid of it.
             Though this is just a record, it might be useful to you as a guide.
             Records aren&#39;t worth any money or anything, but they can be fun.
             How you use my records depends on you. So what do you wish to do?

             (o)Collection Reord
             (o)Dark record
             (o)Collection Book
             (o)Return

Check it out if you wish to. Else go to the North of the Item shop, to meet
Magdalena.

Hospital   : 
             Welcome to the Netherworld Hospital.
             Here, we&#39;ll treat your wounds and heal any and all damage you 
             may have taken.
             We will, of course, charge you accordingly.
             You can earn prizes based on the total HP and SP recovered, so
             please go get thrased in battle.
             
             (o)Get Treated
             (o)Claim Prize

It is not very useful at this very moment. But once you get out of the map,
it&#39;ll be the first place you rush to.

So, go still up and meet Zommie and Dimensional Gate Keeper.

1)Zommie   : Eat, Sleep, and do anything you want all day...
             Its sooooo good to be a demon!

  Laharl   : Have you ever thought of working for me?

  Zommie   : Hahahaha. Of course not. 


2)Item World : This is the Item World Gateway Center. We are not open yet.


So, move still upwards towards the steps and...

Now there&#39;ll be a long conversation between Laharl and Etna.

Laharl : Now, then...time for a little warm-up.
         I feel a little rusty.

Etna   : Ah, Prince.
         We&#39;ve got company...how convenient.

Laharl : Stray demons, huh...

Etna   : Allow me, Prince.
         You may be a little out of practice after your long slumber.

Laharl : Don&#39;t worry, I came prepared!

Etna   : Come on, Prinny Squad!!
         ... 
         Get your butts out here, NOW!!
         So Prince, whaddya think of this Prinny Squad I hired?
         They are my loyal servants; they&#39;ll do anything I say.

Laharl : Are you sure about that?

Etna   : See, they&#39;re loyal.

Laharl : ...Does it make sense to beat up your allies before a battle?
         Anyways, I think we&#39;ve made those demons wait long enough already.

Etna   : Hey, you&#39;re right.
         How nice of them to be so patient.

Laharl : Yeah, that&#39;s considerate of them.
         To show my appreciation, I&#39;ll beat them only half to death.

Etna   : Oh, you&#39;re so kind. If I were you, I&#39;d beat them all the way to death.

Laharl : K,Kind !?
         Stop that! That word gives me goosebumps!
         Dammit! I take it back!
         I&#39;m gonna beat them all the way to death!

Etna   : (He&#39;s still a kid, so quick-tempered.)
         (It looks like carrying out my plan will be a lot easier than I 
         thought).

Laharl : Hm?
         You say something?

Etna   : Oh, nothing, nothing at all.
         So, what are your orders, Prince?
         ...You do remember how to fight, right?

 |Just in case you forgot, let me explain the basics of battle.             |
 |                                                                          | 
 |Move the cursor over the "Base Panel" and press the A button to select    |
 |the characters you wish to dispatch.                                      |
 |                                                                          |
 |If you want to cancel an order to dispatch a character, move the cursor   |
 |over the character and press the B buton.                                 | 
 |                                                                          |
 |For example, if you press the B button here...you can cancel the action.  |
 |                                                                          |
 |Now let&#39;s issue a command to a dispatched character.                      |
 |                                                                          |
 |First, move him/her next to an enemy...and select "Attack".               |
 |                                                                          |
 |You have now assigned an action. However, the character won&#39;t attack      | 
 |immediately.                                                              |
 |                                                                          |
 |If you want to execute the actions which you&#39;ve assigned, open the menu   |
 |and select either "Execute" or "End Turn".                                |
 |                                                                          |
 |In this case, let&#39;s pick "Execute".                                       |
 |                                                                          |
 |See? The character attacked.                                              |
 |                                                                          |
 |Assign Actions -> X button -> Execute.                                    |
 |Remember this. You&#39;ll be using it a lot.                                  |
 |                                                                          |
 |If you assign actions to multiple characters, they&#39;ll be executed in the  |
 |order that you assign them.                                               |
 |                                                                          |
 |Be careful, you can&#39;t cancel actions once you&#39;ve execute them.            |
 |                                                                          |
 |After you&#39;re done issuing the commands, open the menu and end your turn.  |
 |                                                                          |
 |It will then be the Enemy&#39;s turn.                                         |
 |                                                                          |

         For crying out loud!

Etna   : ...This was an example of something NOT to do.
         Only an idiot would rush straight into enemy alone.

Laharl : You made me do it!!

Etna   : Characters killed in battle, like our Prince here, can be revived
         by paying Hell (HL) to the Castle&#39;s Hospital.
         If all of your dispatched characters are defeated, the game will be
         over.

Laharl : So, the basic idea is to gang up on one character and beat, the living
         day lights out of him, huh?

Etna   : Exactly, Prince.
         Remember to use your head next time.

Laharl : You&#39;re the one who told me to do it!!

Etna   : Team attacks sometimes occur when allies are positioned next to 
         attacking characters.
         If several characters attack the enemy in a row, a "combo" will
         result and greater damage will be dealt.
         If you want to know more, press the X button and select "Help" 
         from the menu.
         So now you&#39;ll get to fight your first battle indeed.

Press A on the base panel (blue one)
and dispatch the characters one by one. Move two of your characters to each
enemy and put the last character on the base panel itself.

Make your characters attack their respective enemy. If one of the two enemies
does not die, make your last character go and kill him.

Then end your turn. And in your turn, attack the last enemy by ganging up on
him.
         
This level will be a piece of cake for you. After you kill all the enemies,
the stage clears.

You may get an item and some Hell (HL). You can go back to the castle by
pressing B on the "Tutorial Select Screen".

Then go to the Netherworld Hospital and Heal. Then save your game, before
attempting the next area. From now on I will call this process as HEAL AND SAVE.

Then go back to the Dimensional Gate keeper and select Battle Basics 2.

 |         distance too.                                                    |
 |         I&#39;ll throw you next to an enemy.                                 |

 |Etna   : See? That covered a lot of ground. Now, you&#39;re able to attack.   |
 |         You can use "Lift" and "Throw" on both allies and enemies.       |
 |         Keep in mind that only humanoid characters can use "Lift" and    |
 |         "Throw". (Monsters can&#39;t do it).                                 |
 |         By making good use of these commands you can extend your attack  |
 |         range.                                                           |
 |         This is very helpful in some maps, so don&#39;t forget it.           |
 |         There are other uses for these commands besides covering ground  |
 |         like holding an enemy so he/she can&#39;t move, saving injured allies|
 |         from danger, etc.                                                |
 |         By the way, Prinnies will explode when they&#39;re thrown. So handle |
 |         them with care.                                                  |

 |Prinny : Dood!?                                                           |

Laharl : Geo panels...interesting. These are geographical features that are
         attuned to the elements of the universe.
         Crystallization of those elements results in "Geo Symbols", like the
         one right there.

Etna   : ...Well, that doesn&#39;t explain anything. So let me clarify a few things.


(.)------------------------------------------------------------------------(.)
 |                                                                          |
 |< T U T O R I A L :   G E O   E F F E C T S >                             |
 |                                                                          |
 |Let me explain "Geo Effects", a system which will heavily influence battle|
 |                                                                          |
 |Take a good look at the coloured panels on the area map.                  |
 |                                                                          |
 |Notice that "Enemy Boost + 50%" is displayed at the top of the screen.    |
 |                                                                          |
 |This means that when an enemy is on a blue panel, his/her ATK and DEF will|
 |be powered up by 50%.                                                     |
 |                                                                          |
 |This is not good for you, so it&#39;s wise to get rid of this effect.         |
 |                                                                          |
 |You might be wondering, "Where does it come from in the first place?"     |
 |                                                                          |
 |Why lookie here! I just found an object labelled "Enemy Boost" on this    |
 |blue panel! This guys the culprit!                                        |
 |                                                                          |
 |(Laharl : How obvious was that?)                                          |
 |                                                                          |
 |This object is called a "Geo Symbol" and as long as it&#39;s on a coloured    |
 |panel, all panels of the same colour will be affected. Let&#39;s toss it      |
 |somewhere.                                                                |
 |                                                                          |
 |The effect "Enemy Boost" is no longer on any of the blue panels.          |
 |                                                                          |
 |But... Huh? The Geo Symbol is now affecting the red panels. That doesn&#39;t  |
 |change much. Hmmmmm.                                                      |
 |                                                                          |
 |Let&#39;s just destroy it, then.                                              |
 |                                                                          |
 |...Oh, before we do that, do you see "To Blue" displayed in the           |
 |Geo Symbol&#39;s status window? Remember that.                                |
 |                                                                          |
 |Now, it&#39;s time to attack. Go ahead, Prince.                               |
 |                                                                          |
 |Huh? The red panels are now Blue. Remember the "To Blue" in the status    |
 |window? This is what it was referring to.                                 |
 |                                                                          |
 |Destroying a blue Geo Symbol will turn all panels, which are the same     |
 |colour as the one it was on, blue.                                        |
 |                                                                          |
 |Damage will be dealt to anyone standing on one of those panels at the     |
 |time, so be sure to take that into consideration. No damage will be       |
 |dealt if you destroy a blue Geo Symbol on a blue panel. (No panels        |
 |will change colour either.)                                               |
 |                                                                          |
 |You can build up your Bonus gauge by changing colour of the Geo panels.   |
 |If you are able to use what you&#39;ve learned to destroy all the Geo Panels, |
 |then you will recieve a Panel Termination Bonus.                          |
 |                                                                          |
 |All this relates to a term I used before, Geo Effects.                    |
 |                                                                          |
(.)------------------------------------------------------------------------(.)

Laharl : That&#39;s pretty complicated.

Etna   : You&#39;re right, it is.
         It might be a good idea to start off by destroying only the harmful
         Geo symbols. Nullifying all the panels is for experts who understand
         the concept of Geo Effects completely, and you&#39;re not one of them.

Laharl : What&#39;d you say?!

Etna   : Not all Geo symbols have negative effects. When you get the chance, you
         should try to take advantage of useful ones.
         Lastly, press SELECT button to turn the Geo panel display ON/OFF.

NOTE: When you replay the stage, the Exp + 50% will be removed.
Thanks to tony fu, for reminding me.

It is really the most easiest one. Just make one of your character (Laharl would
be the best), destroy the Blue Geo Symbol on the right.

There&#39;ll be a big combo chain and the stage clears.

Laharl : ...Hm. I&#39;m starting to get the hang of things again.

Etna   : Okay then, are you ready to request some allies at the Dark Assembly?
         There you&#39;ll be able to create characters who will become your loyal 
         pupils.

Laharl : Loyal pupils...
         That does not sound like a bad idea. Alright, let&#39;s go!

So lets get started. Talk to Pleinair and select Summon Assembly. If you have
at least 10 Mana, create a character. Or else its better to gain more Mana by
defeating enemies by replaying the Geo Effects stage, because if you have less 
than 10 Mana, you can create only a Good-for-nothing.

When you have enough mana, create a character.

BUT NEVER PUT THE CHARCTER AS GOOD FOR NOTHING!!!

In my view its better to create a Warrior or a Brawler first.
I created a Brawler first. Then level him up by playing Geo Effects.

After that you can create a Cleric.

Also you can make Laharl take up the Promotion Exam if he&#39;s at atleast Lvl.4.
It would easily make him go up to Lvl.5 or Lvl.6.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

+-------------+
|HEAL AND SAVE|
+-------------+

Equip your characters with the weapons you may have got from the bonus gauge.
Or else you may also want to buy some cool new weapon for your newly 
created Warrior. It would be better to give him a nice sword.

Also give Etna a good Spear (Buy it, it&#39;s worth it).

Then talk to the Dimensional Gatekeeper and she&#39;ll say that Vyer&#39;s Castle has
been added to the list of areas.

But in my view it would be better to level up before playing that level. Its
"NOT" absolutely necessary...But it would be "better" to level up.

The easiest way to win this is by using the Geo Effects concept.

             ___ ___ 
            |   |   |
            |___|___|   B = Blue Geo Symbol
            | B |   |   Y = Yellow Geo Symbol
            |___|___|
            |   | Y |
            |___|___|

Just move your character (humanoid) above the Blue Geo Symbol. MAke him lift it
and make him Throw it beside the Yellow Geo Symbol on the Red Geo Panel.

Then destroy the Blue Geo Symbol and wait and watch. A big Combo occurs and
five of your enemies automatically die.

OR ELSE,

Destroy the Yellow Geo Symbol and place the Blue Geo Symbol on the Geo panel.
It will rack up experience bonus when you defeat the enemies.

Take out the first 4 ghosts in front of you, in the first turn. Then, put your 2
most powerful characters on the Yellow Geo panels and place your other
characters beside them to make Team Attacks.

I would recommend you to put Laharl and Etna/Your created Warrior. I had put
Laharl and my Warrior. I had levelled him up very much in the Geo Panel stage.

Then you can easily defeat the enemies who come at you &#39;cause you have 
Attacks+1 and DEF+50. They "won&#39;t" be able to damage you much and you "will" be
able to damage them much. Isn&#39;t it coool!???

Thus eventually you can clear the stage.

Take care of the first two boggarts in the first turn. They are more powerful
than the ghosts, even though they look like the ghosts. Do not damage the
Geo symbols. Place your characters in the water, since they have recovery 20%
in the water. Kill the ghost in the water. He IS very strong, since he has a 
very good equipment: Muscle Brawn, Bulletproof Vest and Protector. More over
there is Recovery 20% also, in the water.

So take your best characters to kill the ghost. Then end your turn. Make sure 
that your weak characters are not nearer to the archers. In your second turn,
take care of the two archers with Laharl and another strong character. The
archers SHOULD be killed in this turn. 

Then kill the warrior as he approaches you. And also kill the Red Mage, if
it approaches you, or take care of it in the next turn.

Thus, this stage can be cleared. I must confess this is not a very easy stage 
compared to the previous ones. So you have to level if you aren&#39;t able to
clear it.

NOTE:
After you beat this stage, the recover 20% will be replaced with

equips and level her high enough, she could dodge all of enemy&#39;s attacks."


So, I advise you to get defeated in the mid-boss battle! Then as said above
make Plenair join your team. Then repeat the whole game again till this stage.
You can avoid the first two tutorials. So you have to only complete, Geo effects
and the Vyers castle. It would not be tough as your characters will be in the
same level as they were, when they got defeated.

My characters were at the following levels.

Laharl----Lvl.8,
Warrior---Lvl.6,
Etna------Lvl.6,
Prinnies--Lvl.5 each,
Brawler---Lvl.3,
Warrior---Lvl.3,
Cleric----Lvl.2.

First of all take care of the boggart on your right. Then make Laharl destroy
the Geo Symbols placed in a row on the left with his Blade Rush. And make sure
none of your charcters go near the Green Mage or the Archer. Whatever level
your characters may be in they wont stand a chance against them. They have the
power of Geo Panels.

Once Laharl destroys the Geo Symbols, you can easily defeat the enemies using
the special attacks of your characters and also the normal attacks, of course.

Then go against Vyers. And kill him with your specials.

MidBoss: Heh...
         I have underestimated your skill.
         I took you for but a child.
         But, that was an error in judgement...
         I am too kind-hearted.

Laharl : Liar.
         You were serious just now.

Etna   : How pathetic.
         Nothing&#39;s worse than a sore loser.

MidBoss: Ugh...!
         What repulsive little brats you are.
         I shall come to return the favor, so do not forget moi!!

Laharl : Alright, let&#39;s collect the spoils and head home.

Etna   : Uh... Prince, I need to use the restroom.

Prinny
Squad  : Master Etna ran away.
         ...Which means ...
         Dood, we&#39;re gonna hafta carry all this?
         We&#39;re Master Etna&#39;s vassals, not the Prince&#39;s...
          
Laharl : Etna&#39;s vassals are my vassals.
         And my vassals do what I say.
         Now, get to work.

Prinny
Squad  : Dooooooood...

Big Sis
Prinny : Now, now.
         It&#39;s only until the next red moon, right?

Prinny 
Squad  : ...I guess you&#39;re right, dood.
         I&#39;ll get to work.

Etna   : ...No, he doesn&#39;t suspect a thing.

????   : I see...
         But still, how did he survive after drinking that potion...?
         If he fully recovers, this will become a difficult task...

Etna   : Don&#39;t worry.
         If you leave it to me, the throne will be yours.

????   :Are you sure you can deliver on that promise?

Etna   : ...Yes
         Remember, in exchange...

????   : I know.
         When I reign supreme as the Overlord, I shall return it to you.

Etna   : ......

????   : Hmhmhm...
         Hahahahahaha!!

Etna   : Finally, the time has come for Prince Laharl to pay for all his 
         evil deeds!!

Laharl : Hey!

Etna   : Now, Etna will fulfill the late Prince&#39;s wish and succeed him to the
         throne.

Laharl : I&#39;m not dead.

Etna   : So long, Price!
         Your humble vassal Etna will put your money and power to good use.

Laharl : You&#39;re one scary girl.

Cute 
Angel   : Did you send for me, Master Lamington?

Seraph  : Yes, I did.
          Here, Flonne. Have a look.
          The flowers are in full bloom.

Flonne  : How beautiful!

Seraph  : ......

Flonne  : *giggle* I love these flowers.
          They are simple, yet so bright and lively...
          I want to be like these flowers...
 
Seraph  : ...Flonne, listen carefully to what I have to say.

Flonne  : Yes?

Seraph  : As Seraph, I have orders for you, Angel Trainee Flonne.
          Go to the Netherworld and assassinate the Overlord, King Krichovskoy.

Flonne  : Huh?

Flonne  : Well, I&#39;m here... at the Overlord&#39;s Castle.
          ...I still wonder why Seraph picked me though.
          Master Vulcanus would have been a much better choice...
          Not only that, but an assassination...
          What is the Seraph thinking?

Angel   : Master Lamington!
          Master Lamington, are you here!?

Seraph  : Why all the ruckus, Vulcanus?
          You scared the birds away.

Vulcanus: Who cares about the birds...
          I have an important question!
          Is it true that you sent Flonne to assassinate King Krichevskoy!?

Seraph  : Yes, it is true.

Vulcanus: Wha, wha, wha!?
          What did you do that for!?
          King Krichevskoy is the ruler of that abominable, dirty, rotten 
          Netherworld!!  

Seraph  : ......

Vulcanus: If you want him assassinated, it would make more sense to send me!
          Instead you pick that Angel Trainee...
          You think too highly of her!
          I am very aggravated by this!

Seraph  : ...That is exactly why you are not fit for this task.
          Besides, this is something that only Flonne can accomplish...

Flonne  : Nin nin nin!

Flonne  :Wumph!!
         Whew... Looks like I made it in without being seen.
         What do they call those guys in the human world?
         Oh, yes... "Ninjas"...I always wanted to be one.
         Maybe I have potential. Nin nin
