[01] Main Story Walkthrough

[01.01] The Beginning

Main character apparently has a habit of sleeping in. A conversation about
sleep, nothing much here. You meet two other main characters: Liu and Marica.
You can move now so save and walk out. Another conversation mentioning three
other characters. Go to the town square next and talk to the guy in blue - 
he's your mentor, Dirk. After the conversation, leave the place and go to the 
elder's house to meet Sisuca, who raised you, and Elder Rajim, who is Marica's
father. Next, go to the general store to meet Jale and recieve free medicine.
Next head to the town square to add Dirk to your party and to recieve your
first mission.

[01.02] Mission 01: Get Rid of Eastern Laggarts

Items: Mega Medicine x1, Cheery Incense x1, Shining Legacy x1

Leave the village and listen to Dirk as he explains formations. I recommend
changing the current formation from the menu but that's up to you.

OPTIONAL: Enter the farm that is towards the bottom of the map and talk to
Yadima the farmer. This is important if you later wish to recruit him.

Continue moving to the East of the farmhouse then head North into the hill.
You will be thrown into a battle as soon as you enter the mountain. Move up the
road and head top left to find Mega Medicine and a fork. Go left to find Cheery
Incense and right to find a save point. Follow the path until you get a
cutscene. Move back to the short path for another cutscene after which you will
be taken to a completely different area. Follow the path for a cutscene and a
save point. Enter the ruins and walk a little for another cutscene and a battle
. Follow the stairs 2 maps left to trigger yet another cutscene. Another battle
but you have the Marks of the Stars this time so use them. After the cutscene, 
leave the ruins and head back the way you came for another cutscene and the end
of your mission.

Head back to the village for a cutscene and a new mission.

[01.03] Mission 02: Track Down Marica's Double

Items: Mint x1, Mega Medicine x1

Go to Flesaria Forest South and follow the road until a cutscene triggers with
Hotupa and Moana. Go to the next map for another cutscene. You're now at a fork
with 2 dead-ends so take the bottom path until you get a cutscene and a battle.
Fight for a few rounds until the battle is interrupted. Follow the path up and
left. 2 maps later, you arrive at a fork. The top path gets you Mint and the 
bottom path leads to another fork. At the second fork, the bottom path gets you
Meda Medicine and the top path takes you towards a save point and a cutscene. 
Next move to the Fortress Ruins for another cutscene. Go into the building
until you get to the entrance then go down. Go down again on this map to find
the gateway. Retrace your steps to the entrance for a cutscene then towards
the right to fight the renegade. Go back to the gateway and bid Marica's
double farewell to accomplish the mission.

Still in cutscene mode, Hotupa recieves the mark of the stars and you recieve 
your next mission.

[01.03] Mission 03: The World's Largest Library

Items: None.

Leave through the West entrance to trigger a cutscene where Liu leaves and 
Moana Joins. If you head back inside you can find a save point and Moana with a
quest stall but you can't do any quests yet. Leave and go to Flesaria Forest
North. At the first fork here just keep going forward and then head down. On 
the next map, take the road to the right. There is a sign at the next fork;
Left takes you to Gineh Valley and right to Grayridge, where you are headed.
After the cutscene in Grayridge go to the inn for another and then to the 
vendor for another. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING, the prices drop later. Head to Chapter
Hall for your first meeting with Logan and Gilliam. Talk to Gilliam for another
cutscene and a meeting with Macoute and Erin. Your mission is accomplished.

Head to the inn and talk to Logan after the cutscene for an even longer one
during which Logan and Erin join you.

[01.04] Mission 04: Expose Macoute's Evil

Items: Iron Ore x1, Gold Ore x1, Bone Club x1, Noble Steel x1, Revival Statue 
x2, Broadsword x 1, Iron Mail x1, Pass x1.

Exit the inn and go to the mine. 2 cutscenes will trigger. Head to the East of
the elevator and follow the path. At the next area, head left, up and left to
find a ladder going down and a cutscene waiting for you. The next area head 
right and right. Now head down for Iron Ore or left, left for another ladder
down. This area has a save point and your first boss battle. By this point all
my characters were at level 14. It's a fairly easy battle; simply attack and
get Marica to heal whenever necessary - you recieve Gold Ore and a Bone Club.
Keep going straight past the lift to find the evidence you need and the Noble 
Steel book. Leave the room to ride the elevator up. A cutscene triggers as you
leave the mine and another battle must be fought. You will recieve 2 Revival
Statues, a Broadsword and an Iron Mail after you defeat Gilliam and co. Erin
and Logan leave your party then you're transported back to the inn. Head to
Chapter Hall to recieve your Pass and finish your mission.

A cutscene triggers as you leave Chapter Hall and you meet the gambler Semias.
Head to the inn to accept your next mission.

[01.05] Mission 05: To the Library at Last!

Items: None.

Leave Grayridge and enter Fort Arc. During the cutscene you will meet a
mysterious man. Walk straight until you leave the fort from the Northern gate.
Enter Cynas, marvel at the Tower of Way and meet Icas. The tower is closed but
you will be taken to an alley where you meet Darrow and Savina and then to the
store. Go to the inn and talk to the innkeeper. After a series of cutscenes,
you are asked to fetch a doctor. Leave the room, go up to the innkeeper, listen
then go back to the room. Among the next few cutscenes, you will meet the 
archivist Diadora and you will find out that the other two are called Connon 
and Fergus.

[01.06] Mission 06: Escape from the Order

Items: None.

This will be your first encounter with Valfred - Connon and Fergus catch up
with you and a battle follows. You cannot defeat them so just fight until the
battle is interrupted. Vaslof misinterprets the situation and you escape. Go to
Fort Arc and leave through the Southern gate. At Grayridge, go to Chapter Hall,
watch the scene then go to the inn to have Logan join you again and accomplish
the mission.

[01.07] Mission 07: Warn Citro Village

Items: None.

Go to the mine and you will meet Semias again (Main character is an idiot!) 
Head down using the elevator and go up one floor. Move North at the fork and 
North again then left all the way to arrive at the gateway. Marica and Jale
leave the party and the mission is accomplished.

Leave the gateway. After the cutscenes head to the room on the right then go
up to the left room on the second floor. Talk to Liu when you're ready. You
will be taken to the team setup screen, however, you can't alter anything this

[01.08] Mission 08: Defend Citro Village

Items: Revival Statue x1.

Your first fight will be main character and Marica against two soldiers. They 
should be no challenge and you get a Revival Statue for winning. Next up is the
same team versus Connon and Fergus. Once again, you cannot win but this time
it's Liu who bails you out. A few cutscenes later, Liu joins and Jale re-joins
the party. Head downstairs and exit South then left for another cutscene where
you meet Asad, Hafin and Chrodechild.

Talk to Asad and Chrodechild then leave the fortress through the Eastern
entrance for a cutscene with Dirk then go back inside and talk to Asad to 
accept the alliance and have them join your party.

[01.09] Mission 09: To the Magedom of Janam

Items: Fierce Regalia x1.

Name your company then leave the fortress. A cutscene introduces you to Meruvis
then you're free to go to Mislato River. Another cutscene awaits to introduce
you to Luvais. There's only one path you can follow so... follow! After passing
the river move on to El-Qaral and head to the Imperial Palace to meet Danash 
VIII, Shairah and Shams. Then head to the Arcane Academy to meet "her bagship",
Rizwan and Mubal, who joins you. You also recieve the Fierce Regalia. Go back
to the fortress ruins now then to the hall on the second floor to finish your

(A/N: I believe the three quests and their follow-ups that you recieve from the
magedom are compulsory which is why they're part of the main walkthrough.)

[01.10] Quest 1: 2nd Empress Consort Rizwan

Items: Gold Ore x1, Revival Statue x1, Academy Key x1.

Go to El-Qaral and click on the Arcane Academy to trigger a cutscene with Taj.
Go with him to the Prince's Palace, listen to Shams and recieve the Academy
Key. Now go to the Academy. You are asked to fight a rock dragon; He's a little
tough but you should be fine. You will recieve Gold Ore and a Revival Statue.
Go through the locked door, past the hall and all the way downstairs then enter
the room for a cutscene with Rizwan, Mubal and Manaril. Leave the Academy and
visit Shams to finish the quest.

After completing the quest, a cutscene with Dirk will occur. Climb up to the 
second floor and you will hear Mubal scream. Go into the Chronicle Room for a
cutscene. Follow the road then take the one leading South. Then take right and
right again. Battle Nova and then you'll be taken back inside.

[01.11] Quest 2: 3rd Empress Consort Kureyah

Items: Mislato Salmon x1, Silver Spear x1, Bronze Axe x1, Iron Greatsword x1,
Mega Medicine x2, Revival Statue x1, 5000 Potch.

Go to the Prince's Palace in El-Qaral and meet Kureyah. Go to Mislato River and
start heading South to find Mislato Salmon. Go back, stay on the Southern part 
and walk West until you find another chest giving you a Silver Spear then head
South. When you cross the wooden plank and arrive at the rocks, go back up on
the other side for a chest with a Bronze Axe then go back South and follow the
path. If you head North after the first plank, you will find a chest with an
Iron Greatsword and the path to the next map. As you move down the area, a 
group intercepts you. Defeat them for 2 Mega Medicine and a Revival Statue. To
the left, a chest with 5000 Potch can be found and South is Salsabil. Go to the
Viceroy's Mansion to meet Kureya's parents, Masrur and Furat. Head to the inn 
for a good night's sleep then back to the mansion and move to the back. After
the cutscene, go back to the palace in El-Qaral to complete the quest.

You will meet Nakil in El-Qaral. He will tell you about troops in Grayridge.

[01.12] Mission 10: Defend the Castle

Items: Mega Medicine x9, Argent Greatsword x1, Sapphire Rod x1.

Go to the entrance in your castle and then to the hall on the second floor.
Tell Liu you're ready when you are and you'll be taken to the team setup 
screen. At this point, my characters were all level 19 except for Logan, who 
was 15. I kept Jale alone in his own team, main character with Liu and Logan
with Marica plus Erin as support. Arrange the teams as you see fit then head
out. You first battle will be Jale's team and you will recieve 3 Mega Medicine
upon winning. Next up is Logan's team, win for 3 Mega Medicine. Main 
character's team fights next and you recieve another 3 Mega Medicine for 
winning. The mission is accomplished after a cutscene and you recieve Argent
Greatsword and a Sapphire Rod once you report it to Moana.

[01.13] Quest 3: 1st Empress Consort Shairah

Items: Sapphire Rod x1, Magedom Sword x1, Mega Medicine x5, Trident x1.

Accept the quest from Moana and go to the Imperial Plaza in El-Qaral. Leave 
town and move to Mislato River. Once there, go past the save point and head
North across the wooden plank. If you go left, you will find a Sapphire Rod and
a Magedom Sword. To the right, you will find the path to Ladzaa Fortress. Go up
to the fortress for a cutscene with Roberto and a battle. You win 3 Mega 
Medicine and a cutscene where you meet Cougar. Go back to El-Qaral and head to
the inn to meet Zahra and Eunice. Go back to your castle and you will get a 
cutscene with Wahie, where he will become your ally. Leave the gateway area to
have Zahra and Eunice join you. Go to the entrance, arrange your teams and 
leave the castle via the Southern entrance for a battle. You recieve 2 Mega
Medicine, a Trident and the mission is finished.

Go to the entrance and then to the hall. Choose your team members and head out
to be taken to Ladzaa Fortress.

[01.14] Quest 4: Ladzaa Fortress Siege

Items: None.

Approach the fortress; A little cutscene interrupts you midway twice and then
again at the fortress. You have to fight a hopeless battle against Vaslof and
Resno and then you pull back.

Go to the castle plaza and a wanderer will tell you to go to the gateway. Talk
to Atrie then leave for the hall.

[01.15] Mission 11: Make Allies of the Porpos

Items: Peach Juice x1, Mixed Herbs x1, Truffle Stew x1, Healing incense x1, Fur
Cape x1, Ch'olui Cabbage x1, Janam Potato x1, Wool Hat x1, Wool Robe x1, Fur
Shoes x1, Beads of the Priestess x1, Cerulean Flux x1, Ninja Garb x1, Revival
Statue x1.

Once you leave the castle, Meruvis will introduce you to Gadburg who will join
you. Go to Gineh Valley when you're ready. If you head top right, you will find
Peach Juice. The bottom left path to the next area gets you Mixed Herbs. Go 
back to the previous area then go up and left to go to the next area. Take the
bottom left path to the next fork. Go left, up then right for Truffle Stew. 
Left, down then right gets you Healing Incense. Left, up, left takes you out of
Gineh Valley. Go to the plaza in Tehah village, watch the cutscene then leave
for the Ch'olui Mountains. Head for the 3rd turn left for a Fur Cape. Otherwise
follow the road up into the next map for a cutscene with Nhazu. Go right to
Dogha's cabin but before you arrive, there is a chest with Ch'olui Cabbage to
the Southwest of the map. When you arrive at the cabin, a cutscene triggers. 
The top road left gets you a Janam Potato. Go back to the previous map and head
left to the next map. Going up, you will come across a Wool Hat and find the
path to the next area. Follow the path for a cutscene then listen to Dogha and 
take the top path for another cutscene. Follow the path into the next map and
if you go down and right you will find a Wool Robe. Left gets you Fur Shoes and
bottom left takes you out of the mountains. Go to Naineneis and then to the 
Entry for a cutscene with two wanderers. Walk up to the seashell for another
cutscene. You will meet Nimni and then you will be let in. Go to the Temple to
meet Neira then leave fo the Coastal Cave. Walk up a little for a cutscene
where you get the Beads of the Priestess. Go straight up and enter the middle 
steam circle. Go straight to the next map then head left and follow the path
to the next area and then to the next. Here you will find a massive monster. He
shouldn't give you a lot of trouble ... my only advice is to not neglect
healing. You recieve Giant Crab Meat, Rainbow Thread and - after you move
forward - the Cerulean Flux. Go back the way you came for a battle with Connon;
He's quite easy to defeat compared to the renegade. You recieve Ninja Garb and
a Revival Statue. After the cutscene, go down all the way until you leave the 
cave. Go back to the Temple in Naineneis to finish the mission.

OPTIONAL: I recommend recruiting Westum now. This is the earliest you can
recruit him but he is permenantly missable so better safe than sorry.

Go up to the hall in your castle, setup your teams then head out. Go to the 
Imperial Palace in El-Qaral.
