The ark is located directly outside of Hardia, to the south. The room to register in is the second from the right, near the entrance. The Basics of Battle: It is possible to see the animals on the overworld before battling them, thus making avoiding them easier. If you do not want to fight them, use the X Button to run away. Animal Hunting and Animal Registration: Animal hunting and registration are the fabric of this game. In battle mode, all you have to do is attack and make them stop fighting. But if you attack to heavily, the animal will die. That's the trick to this game: moderation. Judge your animals carefully and never attack too strongly. On the flipside, never be too weak or the animal will kill you. How to Use Animals: Money is the key. Sell your animals on the market for the best price. To sell your animals, simply go to the counter in the first area of the town. If you acquire the ability "Equipment Manufacture", you will be able to make weapons from male animals (indicated by the alchemic "male" symbol by the monster's name) and armor from the female animals (indicated by the alchemic "female" symbol by the monster's name). The strength of the weapons or armor depends on the animal it came from. Another ability that can be acquired is "Make Food", this is rather straight forward. Eating meat is the best way to heal, for it not only gives your HP but also a strength increase. Staying in hotel's restore your HP and BP, but that takes too much time. In Lindacube Again, -time is of the essence-. Everything in this game depends on time. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I hope this helps anyone who imported Lindacube Again (like there are any of you out there...heh...) and you will progress through it with general ease no matter which scenario you choose. I shall update this FAQ by January, 1999 and will be writing more FAQs. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
