SUBJECT: Genso Suikoden Walk-Through Guide
VERSION: 1.01
EDITOR's NOTE:  Here is version 1.01 of the Walk-Through for Genso 
                Suikoden.  Please note that this guide will assume
                that you have at least a minimal understanding of 
                Japanese (Katakana & Hiragana), due to the overwhelming
                number of characters and towns in this game.
                Please also refer to the "Tips & Tricks" posting 
                for various details on operations, functions, how to 
                save. etc.

                In this version, I could only find 106 out of the 108 
                characters in the game.  So, you will not get the 
                special "108" ending.  If anyone knows who and where
                the 2 remaining characters are, please post it or 
                email me.  ThankX.
   
                If there are any errors or suggestions, please let 
                me know, as I will try to update the guides 
                accordingly.  Thankx. 
------------------------------------------------------------------------
KEY:  [!] = Decision Point.  You will be given choices in response to
            the various interaction with the characters.  
            Most of the choices have no effect on the storyline, but 
            avid RPG fans will want to choose the right answers.

      [CHAR] = Joining Character Number.  There are a total of 108 
               characters in the game who will join you.   
               This guide will point out when & where you will meet each  
               and every one of them.
               Also note that when you do meet new characters, they 
               will ask you if you will let them join -- so if you do 
               not have a fair understanding of Japanese, always 
               remember to pick the top choice to let them join!
========================================================================

-- [IN THE CASTLE] -----------------------------------------------------

    o As the story begins, you and your father, TEO, are called upon by 
      King BALBAROSA for a special mission to oversee the status of an 
      ongoing war taking place within the far eastern area.  The king 
      gives TEO his most prized sword as well as his blessings.  
      As your character stands forward, King BALBAROSA praises you and 
      asks of you to take your father's place in helping defending the 
      kingdom.  

  [!] You will now be given a choice.  You can:
         Top Choice -> Agree to the King's request.  
      Bottom Choice -> Deny the king's request.
      
      Assuming that you chose to agree to the King's request (top choice),
      he again praises you for your courage and similar qualities to 
      your father.  WENDY, one of King BALBAROSA's closest advisors, 
      will step foward to praise you as well.  
      Upon leaving the King's chambers, you will now have control over 
      your character.
 
    o Proceed downstairs.
    o As you head down the hall on the 1st floor, TEO will stop you to 
      tell you that KRAIZ, another one of King BARBAROSA's advisors, 
      will be your mentor while TEO is gone.  
    o Go talk to KRAIZ (left room) and he will tell you to come back 
      1st thing in the morning for a little mission.  

-- [IN YOUR HOUSE] -----------------------------------------------------
    
    o Upon entering your house, GREMEO, one of your servants, will be
      waiting for you and TEO.  GREMEO is also one of your protectorates
      and one of the key characters in the game (but not too effective 
      in battle).
    o Explore throughout the rooms.  Meet your other protectorates: PAN, 
      CLEO, and TED.  
    o Go upstairs and meet TED.  He asks you to tell him what happened 
      at your castle.  Go to your room (1st room on the left - 2nd floor).
    o In your room, he asks you a favor.  He wants to become part of 
      your protectorates.  

  [!] You will be given a choice.  You can:
         Top Choice -> Allow TED to become part of your protectorate.
      Bottom Choice -> Deny TED's request.

    o Assuming you chose the top choice, you then proceed to explain what
      happened at the castle.
    o Take your seet at the dining table.
      A conversational sequence will take place, where TEO asks all of 
      the protectorates to take good care of you while he is gone.
      Another sequence will take place, where TEO will give his 
      blessings to you.
    o GREMEO will wake you up, reminding you to go to KRAIZ's chambers 
      at the castle.

    o Head towards the door.  TED will then join you.
     
[CHAR]: 4/108         Name: TED            Weapon: Bow & Arrow

-- [TOWN OF GREGMINSTER] -----------------------------------------------
         
    o Explore the town.  Get accustomed to its surroundings.  
    o Go in the castle to KRAIZ's chambers.
    o KRAIZ will tell you that there is an island where you must obtain 
      an artifact from the sorceress, LEKNAUT.  He will test you if you
      where listening carefully.

  [!] You will be given three choices.  Which is the correct answer?
         Top Choice -> The island is located in the Eastern area. 
      Middle Choice -> The island is located in the Western area.
      Bottom Choice -> The island is located in the Southern area.
 
    (Pick the Top Choice)

      waiting for you in the castle's courtyard to take you to the 
      island.

    o Go outside and to the courtyard. (right side of the castle)
    o Talk to HOOCH, the dragon rider, and he will take you to the 
      island.

-- [FIRST MISSION: THE ISLAND] -----------------------------------------
  
    o Make your way through the forest.
      (The BG Music for this scenery is simply extraordinary)
    o You will then encounter LUKE -- he will test your fighting 
      abilities, as he will summon a Rock Golem.
    o Having defeated the Rock Golem, he will then take you to see
      LEKNAUT, the mystic sorceress.
    o Make your way up the castle and meet LEKNAUT.
    o Follow LEKNAUT to her chamber, where she will give you the artifact.

      to be right.
    o Leave her chamber & talk to your friends.
      LEKNAUT will have come in & have LUKE teleport you back to HOOCH
      and the dragon.  You will then head back to Gregminster to give the
      artifact to KRAIZ.

-- [BACK IN GREGMINSTER] -----------------------------------------------

    o Report back to KRAIZ.
    o He will then give you instructions for the second mission.

               and obtain money from the head village official.
    o KRAIZ will have KANON go with you to oversee the mission.

    o Explore the town.  There is a little lady who offers a gambling 
      game for you to make/lose some quick money.
    o Go to the house located at the very end of the village.
      (Since the village is already small, you really can't miss it)
    o There, you will be given instructions from the head official to 
      take care of a rebel uprising in the mountain located east of 
      Rockland.
      Intruction: Bring the two rebels back to the head official and you 
                  will be given the money.

    o Make your way through the mountain.  Gain as much experience and 
      levels as you can.
    o Deep inside the caves, you will come across a large insect that is 
      blocking your way.  Don't bother trying to kill it.  It is set up 
      so that you will lose the round and then TED will cast a spell 
      to finish it off.
    o After TED kills the insect, preceed outside, where you will 
      encounter the two rebels.  
      (You may want to consider saving the game before fighting them.
       To save, use the blue orb.  For more details on saving, 
       refer to the "Tips & Tricks" posting.)

      He will take the rebels and give you 10,000 gps.

-- [BACK IN GREGMINSTER] -----------------------------------------------

    o KANON will tell you to return to your house, as he will report to 
      KRAIZ himself (and take all the credit).

      explain what happened at the castle.  You will begin to find out 
      that WENDY wants TED's mystic soul gem to give her the ultimate 
      power she needs for her overdriven lust for power.

  [!] You will be given a choice.  You can:
         Top Choice -> Listen to his favor.
      Bottom Choice -> To ignore him.

[EDITOR'S NOTE]: Since I could not find the last two characters,
                 you will not be able to see the special "108" ending.
                 If anyone knows where the last remaining two characters 
                 are, please post it or email me.  Thank you.


[SO....]:  So, you finished the game, and you think you've seen everything 
           this RPG has to offer, eh?  Well, there are some other secrets
           to this game, like the stairs of the hotel in the village of 
           Daishirin.  The stairs lead to a certain room, but containing
           what....or rather whom?
