**   CHAPTER 1 REVIEW  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Walkthrough 1 for Dark Cloud 2: Prelude and Chapter 1 recommended
  these WEAPON upgrades.
  + Max's Wrenches.
    - By the time you finished with the events of Chapter 1, Max should
      have:
      # The 'Smash Wrench' following the Upgrade Path:

                 
         Battle ------------------> Drill ----> Smash Wrench
         Wrench               ----> Wrench
               \             /
                --> True Battle
                      Wrench

      # The box-charts showing needed attribute values are in Chapter 1:
        Floors 1 (Drill Wrench) and 2 (Smash Wrench).
      # If you haven't upgraded,  go to that Walkthrough and use Ctrl+F
        to find 'Smash Wrench'.

  + Max's Guns.
    - There was time for two or three upgrades for the 'Classic gun' and
      the 'Dryer Gun'.

               Dryer
                 Gun
                    \
    Classic          --> Bell
        Gun         ---> Trigger
           \       /
            Trumpet 
                Gun
                   \
                    ---> Grenade
                         Launcher

  + The box-charts showing the needed attribute values are in Chapter 1: Floor 3.
    - If you don't have one of these weapons, go to the Chapter 1 Walkthrough
      and use Ctrl+F and the name of the weapon.
      # It will be easier to raise these weapons in Underground Channel.

> Final event of Chapter 1:
  + At the end of the Chapter 1 Walkthrough:
    - The train comes into Sindain Station (a clearing in the forest), the tracks
      are blocked by large boulders.
    - Monica joins the party and explains:
      # Jurak the Great Elder has disappeared from the future because his 'origin
        point' in Max's time has been destroyed.
      # It is Max and Monica's job to restore Sindain (the georama field) so that
        Jurak can be brought back.
  + Characters who have joined:
    - Cedric is standing outside the door of the middle car of the train.
    - Erik (the thin guy) is standing outside the door to the train engine.
    - Borneo (the heavy guy) is standing near the blocking boulders.
  + The Save Point is away from the train.

> Happy Clown Treasure Chests:
  + You will still sometime find these treasure chests.
    - Although I could not see a pattern in the Underground Channel, that seems to
      be different for the Rainbow Butterfly Woods:
  + The Yellow Gift Box often gives the better result.
    - The pattern: Choose two yellow boxes then one red.
    - This seems to give the best results.


     OFFICIALLY IT IS STILL CHAPTER 1!!!

          SOME INTRODUCTORY INFORMATION...


=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=

*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*
**   SHOPS AT SINDAIN STATION  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Three Shops:
  + Cedric, Erik and Borneo are outside the train.
  + Cedric will repair the Ridepod and has the following in his shop:
      ___________________________
      |Core II       | 1400 EXP |
      |Barrel Cannon |  400 EXP |
      |Caterpillar   |  600 EXP |
      |Shield Kit    |  Varies  |
      |______________|__________|

    - The Barrel Cannon is worth buying since Max cannot invent it until RBW
      Floor 8.
    - It is a distance weapon (that is, Steve doesn't have to get close to
      monsters) and much more powerful.

> Borneo and Erik provide some Georama/invention materials.
  + Talk to Borneo to get a menu.
    - You can add Borneo to your party to use his abilities.
    - When he's in your party, you more likely to get Items when defeating
      monsters.
    - He sells:
      __________________________
      |Rough Rock     |   20 G |
      |Gold Bar       | 1000 G |
      |Silver Ball    |  200 G |
      |Hunk of Copper |   50 G |
      |_______________|________|

  + The gold bar can be sold for the same amount it costs.
    - Gold Bars aren't lost when leaving dungeons before defeating all monsters.

  + Erik's menu.
    - You can add Erik to your party to get free Improved Bombs.
    - He sells gunpowder for 20 G each.

> ADD ERIK TO YOUR PARTY *NOW*:
  + improved Bombs:
    - For 32 Skill Points he makes 3 'Improved Bombs'.
    - He has 64 skill points, so he can make a total of six.
  + Have him make them for you, NOW.

NOTE!!!
  + As soon as you have the bombs:
    - Send Erik back to the train so he can rebuild his skill points.
      # By the time you have explored the new areas in Palm Brinks, he can probably
        give you more Improved Bombs.
      # You can carry a total of 20.
    - Also, after completing 2 to 3 Floors, his skill points are full again.
      # This is at least one full game-time day.
  + You can sell Improved Bombs for 150 G.

**   SORTING THE ITEM BAG  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> By now, you are starting to collect quite a few items of different
  kinds.
  + You need to be able to find specific items quickly and easily.

> The visible section of the Item Bag:
  + Top five rows of the Item Bag.
  + There are six columns across the Bag.

NOTE: If you move the pointer down below these five rows and exit without moving
      the pointer back to the top.
      + Next time you enter the item bag, you'll return to where you left.


> The following organization works for me:

=-=-=-=
 Row 1
=-=-=-=

 Column 1: Leave empty for the Dungeon Key.
           - When you press [Square] it is the first item available.
 Column 2: Bread.
           - When low on HP, Bread and other healing items flash.
 Column 3: Antidote bottles. 
           - When poisoned, the bottle will flash.
 Column 4: Yellow bags with 'Repair Powder'. 
 Column 5: Green 'Gun Repair Powder'.
 Column 6: Orange 'Armband Repair Powder'. 
           - Buy 5-8 from Milane.
           - You start collecting them in Chapter 2.

=-=-=-=
 Row 2
=-=-=-=

  Column 1: Leave this empty for the key to any locked room on the floor. 
  Column 2 through 4:
            + Food items that restore more health than bread: 
              - Roasted Chestnut; Premium Chicken; Cheese. 
            + Found or bought after Chapter 1. 
  Column 5 and 6:
            + Holy water (to remove a curse).
            + Soap (to remove goo).

=-=-=-=
 Row 3
=-=-=-=

  Column 1 through 5: Left empty to store weapons I plan to sell.
  Column 6: Crusty bread. 
            + Restores more health that ordinary bread, 
            + You only get them once (total of 20). 
            + When you are short of space in your bag, use these up.

=-=-=-=
 Row 4 
=-=-=-=

> I keep this and the next row for Crystals used to build up weapons.

    (Col 1)    Power ........... +2 Attack 
    (Col 2)    Flame ........... +3 Fire 
    (Col 3)    Lightning ....... +3 Lightning 
    (Col 4)    Destruction ..... +3 Smash  
    (Col 5)    Hunter .......... +3 Beast 

  + Later (after starting to play Spheda) I keep 'Level-Up' powders in
    Column 6.

=-=-=-=
 Row 5 
=-=-=-=

> The rest of the crystals.

    (Col 1)    Protector ....... +2 Durable 
    (Col 2)    Chill ........... +3 Ice 
    (Col 3)    Wind ............ +3 Cyclone  
    (Col 4)    Holy ............ +3 Exorcism 
    (Col 5)    Sea Dragon ...... +3 Scale 

  + Later I keep Resurrection powders in Column 6.

> The rest is up to you.
  + But I tend to keep like with like:
    - A block for Max's weapons.
      # e.g.: Three rows and two columns (first and second).
    - A second block for Monica's.
      # e.g.: Three rows and three columns (third, fourth, fifth).
      # She usually has more weapons.
  + All notebooks on the bottom row.
    - etc.

*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*
**  THE WORLD MAP  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Anytime in this chapter, Max can return to Palm Brinks.
  + For now, that's the only place where healing items can be bought.

> In addition to 'MOVE" using the World Map, you can use the train to travel
  between places.
  + At one of the three carriage doors, press [X].
    - The second choice 'Leave' allows you to use the train.
    - This becomes more useful when you have more places to go to.

> When you choose 'Move' on the Main Menu:
  + There are now two locations.
    - Center of the map is the location 'Sindain'.
    - Bottom right is the location 'Palm Brinks'.

> Choices on the Palm Brinks location:
     ?  Palm Brinks
     S  Station
     D  Underground Channel
  + Icons on the Map Choices:
    - The '?' = Places that don't fit other categories; a blue icon.
    - The 'S' = Train Stations; green icon.
    - The 'D' = Dungeon; purple icon.

> Choices on the Sindain location:
     S  Sindain Station
  + Once you go to the Sindain Georama, you'll have the choice:
     G  Sindain
    - The 'G' = Georama; orange icon (may be red, depends on your TV).
  + After Conda opens the entrance to the Dungeon, you'll have the choice:
     D  Rainbow Butterfly Wood.

> Palm Brinks:
  + When you choose '? Palm Brinks' from outside Palm Brinks, you arrive in the
    main street near Cedric's Shop.
    - Your character's back is turned toward the drawbridge.
    - He/she faces toward the Police Headquarters, the Station, and the Town
      Square.
  + When you choose 'S Station'
    - Your character gets out of the train onto the station's platform.
    - The character faces the exit, with the train engine behind him/her.
    - There is no sign of Cedric, Erik, or Borneo.
    - Going along the platform toward the exit, you find a Save Point on your left.
    - When you exit the station, you are facing the Fountain.

> RECOMMENDED:
  + Flotsam has been defeated.
    - The clowns have disappeared.
    - The drawbridge is open.
    - so the two other areas of Palm Brinks are now open.
  + Use the World Map to return to Palm Brinks NOW.
    - There are new areas to explore.
      # Town Square with City Hall.
      # The Residential Park.
    - Get more photos so Max can invent more items.

> With 'Ruler of the Pond', you should have four Scoops (5 if you have 'Baron's
  Hanging On').
  + Now is the time to move them into the album.
    - You can put all your Scoops into the album then save it.
  + The photo album provides *permanent* storage.
    - This is saved SEPARATE from your game.
      # You have to choose which Memory Card to save it on.

> Get the 'Photo Album'.
  + Go to Max's house.
    - It's on the desk in his room.
    - To save this to your Memory Card, you need 490KB of free space.

    - Press [X] again and the empty album is opened.
  + Move the pointer across to the scoops on the Idea Board.
    - Point at a Scoop and press [X].
    - The third choice in the list is: 'Move to Album'
    - Press [X] on that choice and the Scoop is moved (not copied) to the Album.
    - Repeat until all your scoops are moved.
  + Press [O].
    - Choose which Memory Card you'll save the Album to.
      # You are asked to confirm so choose YES.
    - It tells you there is no album data and how much space is needed.
    - It also asks if you want to create the Album.
      # Tell it YES.
    - The Album data is saved.

**   WIPE-OUT WITH ITEMS GOAL  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> If you wish, you can now try to fill the Wipe-Out goal for Chapter 1;
  UC Floor 2.
  + Preparation:
    - Make sure you have 20 Bombs and the six Improved Bombs.
      # Put 19 of them in one of Max's unused Active Item Slots.
      # Place the six Improved Bombs in the other unused slot.
    - Check if you have any:
      # Bomb Nuts.
      # If so have them ready in case you run out of Bombs.

  + Or use the above invention cards to make more Bombs while on the floor.
    - You will need enough materials.

  + REMINDER: Monsters on the floor:

  + Process:
    - Make sure the slot holding the Bombs is highlighted (circle with
      dashed lines)
    - LOCK-ON to each critter.
    - Press [Square] to use a Bomb.

  + The only ones that will give you a problem are the Bats.
    - Use Improved Bombs for the Bats.
    - Throw while the Lock-On square is still small.
      # They should fly into the explosion.
    - If they are too close, the bomb goes past them before exploding.

**  INTRODUCTION TO CHAPTER 2  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> The dungeon: RAINBOW BUTTERFLY WOOD (RBW).
  + Gate Key is the 'Fairy Saw'.
    - The Gate EXIT is blocked by a tree
    - Choose [Square] to cut it down with the Fairy Saw.
  + Locked Area: A clearing on some dungeon floors blocked by a huge spider web.
    - The Dungeon Key is a small 'Slash Branch' to clear the web.
    - At the red Exclamation Point, press [Square] and choose 'Slash Branch'.
  + You can repeat any floor any number of times.
    - Monsters give more Synth Drops than in Underground Channel and new items.
    - But they are harder to defeat.

> PENNIES FROM HEAVEN (Rare).
  + This has only happened to me in Rainbow Butterfly Wood and mostly on Floor 1.
    - When you defeat one of the critters, some unexpected gold bags and Gilda
      fall out of the trees overhead and/or from the bushes.
    - When it happens:
      # Whatever critter is the first defeated on the floor seems to trigger this
        response.
      # Every time you defeat the same critter in that floor, the same effect
        happens.
    - I'm not sure why this happens, BUT:
      # It doesn't seem to happen until you have defeated at least 3,960 critters
        on the same floor.
        * I wanted to level up and build up several weapons for both Max and
          Monica.
        * RBW Floor 1 is the easiest floor to build up weapons (except very low
          level weapons like Classic Gun, or Long Sword).
      # It usually happens when you are using one of Max's Wrenches.
        * I was using the Digi Hammer.
        * I defeated a Skeleton Soldier.
          ~ I had picked up the normal Gilda and Synth Drops.
          ~ And I turned around to work on another monster, when I noticed a
            couple of bags on the ground.
          ~ Each time I defeated another Skeleton Soldier, the same thing happened.
          ~ When I watched for it, single Gilda also fell out of the sky and the
            bushes.

  Field of Sindain.
  + SAVE your game before going to see the Firbits.

> Video:
  + Monica and Max see a house and hear a strange noise.
  + They realize there is a Firbit sleeping on the roof of the house.
  + The Firbit wakes up and when he comes close, Monica sees his fabulous whiskers.
    - She forgets to be polite, and grabs his moustaches.
      # She pulls on them and when she lets go, they spring back into the face of
        the Firbit.
      # He's so annoyed, he runs into the house and locks the door!
  + Take Max and Monica to the door and try to enter.
    - The Firbit yells: "Nooobody's home!"
    - Monica remembers that Firbits are crazy about Grape Juice.
    - She bribes the Firbit to open the door by saying they had grape juice.
      # If they couldn't come in, she said: "I guess we'll have to throw it away!"

> The most important points in the Video:
  + Firbits have a magical power to make houses and plants, etc.
  + Conda is the Firbit leader and tells them:
    - Holly has disappeared into the forest.
    - A search party of four Firbits haven't returned.
    - All seven Firbits have to be together for their creative powers to work.

> At the entrance to the Rainbow Butterfly Woods:
  + Conda gives them a bottle of Grape Juice to bring the Firbits back.
  + He removes a huge flower to open the entrance to RBW.
    - World Map Sindain locations now available:
      G  Sindain
      S  Sindain Station
      D  Rainbow Butterfly Wood

> Before going into the First Floor of the Rainbow Butterfly Wood: 
  + Go back into Sindain (where the Firbit's house is).
    - Take the following photographs:
      # Log .............. Toward the Firbit's house.
      # Withered Jurak ... Past the Firbit's house.
                           * It's the old tree trunk, beyond a pool,
                             with channels of running water.
      # Rock ............. Beside the Withered Jurak pool.
      # Grass ............ A green patch back toward the Firbit's 
                           house.
    - Inside the Firbit's house:
      # Hammock .......... Attached to a tree growing in the far
                           corner of the room.
      # Wooden Bookshelf ..Attached to the same tree.

> There's a book with an invention on the Bookshelf:
        Ideas = Fountain + Rapper + Tree
    Materials = 1x Wind Element + 10x Scrap of Metal + 2x Hunk of Copper

  + This makes the 'Trumpet Gun'.

**  UPGRADING MONICA'S SWORDS  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> The wipe-out goal for the 1st floor in Rainbow Butterfly Woods (RBW) means Monica
  MUST upgrade her sword(s).
  + She comes equipped with the Long Sword with attack power of 15.
    - Buy the Baselard from Palm Brinks Weapon Shop.
      # It comes with Attack power of 21.
      # You need to upgrade two swords.
    - You don't need to buy a Gladius, Milane gives Monica one later.

> Upgrade Monica's swords and armband (at least +4).
  + Go to the Underground Channel.
    - Walk through UC FLOOR 2 until both left- and right-hand weapons have
      increased 2 Levels (about five or six times).
  + Keep doing the 5th Floor (fastest growth) until desired weapon strength is
    gained.
    - But use the Ridepod to defeat Vanguards then quickly switch to Monica so
      her weapons can collect the Synth Drops.
  + If you try to upgrade her weapons in RBW:
    - You'll use up a lot of Bread.
    - She is still likely to become incapacitated (then Max has to finish that
      floor and her weapons don't grow).

> Use the following techniques in the Underground Channel:
  + The Spin/Leap Attack with the Bats, and the ordinary mimics.
  + The Armband against the Turtle, Night Stalker, and the Darkness.
  + The Ridepod against the Vanguard and King Mimic.
    - But don't forget to switch to Monica to pick up Synth Drops!

  + NOTE: If you find a Long sword, it can be build directly to the Broad Sword.

**  UPGRADING MONICA'S ARMBANDS  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Monica's basic armband is the Magic Brassard which can lead to four different
  types of magic.
  + To begin with, it is easiest to build the Magic Brassard to:
    - Gold Brassard.
      # Magic Attribute is Flame.
    - Then build that to the Crystal Brassard (also Flame).
  + You could build the armband on RBW BUT...
    - It takes longer to defeat RBW monsters than UC monsters.
    - That means you have to keep repairing the weapon.
      # Using a lot of Armband Repair Powders.
  + RECOMMEND:
    - Build Up Magic Brassard in UC Floors 1 and 2.
    - At first, you can have Max use the Grenade Launcher to defeat a monster,
      then switch to Monica to pick up the Synth Drops.
      # Left-hand weapons pick up Synth Drops of Monsters defeated by another
        left-hand weapon.

> Himarra:
  + An animated flower with two attacks:
    - Spits a ball of Goo (slows Max or Monica down).
    - Whirlwind spin so its petals act as cutting blades.
  + Fire from a distance:
    - That whirlwind attack is nasty.
    - The ball of goo doesn't travel that far.
    - If you've run out of soap, the gooed state does wear off after a while.
      # While in a gooed state (you flash a purplish-red) use the
        spin/leap attack (charge up).
  + Another good attack is the Spin/Leap attack (charge-up).
  + Items dropped ...
      Forest Dew
      Wind Crystal
      Prickly ........ Fishing bait.

> The Man-Eating Grass:
  + Looks like a huge Tulip with teeth-lined petals and also has two attacks.
    - Spits a ball of poison (quite a distance).
    - Gives several slaps with its grass-stem arms.
  + As soon as you find Poison Amulets, equip them in the Active Item slots of
    both characters.
    - They'll prevent poisoning for a number of poison hits.
  + Zig-zag toward the Grass.
    - That can confuse it and prevent it spitting poison.
    - When you do this, if it spits it will most often miss.
  + Items dropped ...
       Battan ........ Fishing bait.

> Skeleton Soldier:
  + Packs a mean wallop with its sword.
  + Sometimes when it falls down, it lies on the ground then recovers somewhat and
    stands up again.
    - If you're close enough, press [X]:
      # Sometimes Max will kick the critter!
      # Monica usually stabs him with her sword.
    - Stand back a bit and wait for it to stand up.
    - Wait a moment then hit hard when it starts to walk.
  + The Baselard is better against the Skeleton Soldiers because of the 'Exorcism'
    attribute.
    - The Broad Sword works even better.
  + Items dropped ...
      Unknown Bone
      Holy Crystal
      Poison Apple ... One is needed for King Mardan.
                       - It is fishing Bait.
                       - This is also a throwable Item.

 New Items

   Coins ................... Very rare.
   Armband Repair Powder
   Holy Water


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 SCOOP: SPOOKY GRASS SMILE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> A 'take-it-anytime' Scoop.
  + Move JUST close enough to show an upside-down triangle above the Man-Eating
    Grass monster's head.
  + Creep toward it slowly until it starts to shake its head.
  + Take the photograph.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 FINAL ADVICE~RBW FLOOR 1
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> The Himarra will spit a ball of 'Goo' at you.
  + This REALLY slows the movements of whoever has been gooed.
    - Makes them more vulnerable to attack.
  + Get Soap from the 'House of Healing' at the Church.
  + If you don't have any soap:
    - Hope you can find a fountain (Pink mushroom shell).
      # It will not only restore HP, it will also cure any status changes.
    - You can also change to the other person.

  |____________|______|___|_____|

> Tore is a tree-like creature that spits out Kotores (they're like tree
  seedlings).
  + Tore and Kotores are weak against fire and the Tore can be stunned by 
    throwing a rock at it.
  + Strategy against the Tore:
    - After you fire armband or gun two or three times, back up before firing
      again and you can usually avoid its hits.
    - It has long 'arms' but moves slowly.
    - Try to come up on it from behind or to the side.
  + When it spits out Kotores:
    - They explode as soon as they touch you.
    - Destroy at a distance if possible.
    - If you can knock a Kotore over with Monica's sword, it will not explode (one
      of the longer swords is best).
  + There is no knowing how many Kotore you'll face.
    - It depends on how fast you defeat each Tore.
    - If you're slow, the more chance it has to spit out Kotores.
  + Items dropped ...
      Rolling Log
      Flame Crystal
      Poison Apple

> When you hear a clop-clop sound, you know Pumpkinhead is near by.
  + When Pumpkinhead puts its left arm into its barrel chest you know it's about
    to throws a bomb at you.
    - It throws them quite quickly too.
  + It waves its trident and if close enough, will hit you with it.
  + Occasionally it'll make a break and run for it.
  + Items dropped ...
      Antidote Drink

> The moler is in a moving mound of dirt.
  + It sticks its head up out of the mound to check where you are.
  + It spits a purple curse.
    - If cursed, you cannot equip other weapons.
    - Use 'Holy Water' (from the Church) to cure the curse.
  + It may leap out of the ground at you, when you're close enough.
  + Items dropped ...
      Sticky Clay
      Protector Crystal
      Carrot
  + Strategy for the Moler: 
    - Use gun or armband and try to get it before it gets close.
    - If it get too close either back off, or use the spin/leap attack.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 SCOOP: TORE'S NAP
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> Max needs to creep just barely close enough to the Tore that he can hear the
  Tore snoring 
  + But not close enough to wake it up.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 SCOOP: DANGEROUS PUMPKIN
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

  + Get close enough without setting off the bombing instinct.
  + Take the Scoop as Pumpkinhead twirls its trident.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 SCOOP: FLOATING EARTH DIGGER
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

  + This one is more difficult, but easy if it leaps toward you.
  + You need a picture of the critter as it leaps out of the ground.
    - It's easier to get the photo if you wait until just after it spits.
    - With the critter centered, keep pressing [Square].
      # While in the viewfinder, press [Triangle] and delete all useless photos.
      # Eventually you'll get the Scoop.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 USING ITEMS FOR WIPE-OUT
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> Get ready:
  + Put 19 of the regular Bombs in one of the Active Item Slots.
    - You save one so you don't empty the item bag entirely.
  + To select 19 (of 20):
    - Set the pointer on the bombs in the Item Bag.
    - Press [Triangle] and push [Down] once to reduce the number to be moved to 19.
    - Move the pointer to the an empty Active Item Slot and 
        press [X].
  + Put all but one of the Improved Bombs into the second empty Item Slot.
    - Press [Left] or [Right] to highlight the Active Item Slot with the Bombs.
  + Attack method:
    - Get just barely close enough for the yellow diamond to show above the
      monster's head.
    - Face the monster.
    - LOCK ON (press the [O] button).
    - Press [Square] to toss a bomb at the creature.
    - Repeat if necessary (you may have to dodge).
  + Use [Left] or [Right] to switch from one Active Item slot to the other.

> AIM WELL:
  + One Improved Bomb will defeat the Tore but it takes three Bombs.
  + Because the Moler usually jumps at the wrong moment, use an improved Bomb.
  + A Bomb is sufficient to defeat all others.
    - But  is less likely to defeat a Moler because it
      often jumps at the wrong moment.

> If you haven't already done so:
  + For practice, go to Underground Channel Floor 2, which also has a Wipe-Out
    with ITEMS goal.
  + Special effort for the Bat (a flying monster).
    - When it senses you, the Bat starts winging toward you.
    - The 'Lock On' square should be fairly small or the bomb explodes too far
      past the Bat.
    - An Improved Bomb works even better, but DON'T LET THE BAT GET TOO CLOSE.
      # If necessary, run a short distance and try again.
  + NOTE: the ABS from monsters defeated by a bomb or other item is often divided
    equally between both equipped weapons.

 FINAL ADVICE~RBW FLOOR 2

> SAVE before going to RBW Floor 3.
  + The next Floor has a seal on it.
  + If Monica were 'incapacitated' (lose all HP) the game is OVER! 
    - You would have to start again at the last Save.

> If Monica's weapons are not strong enough, spend some time upgrading
  them.
  + To fill the MAGIC ONLY wipe-out goal for RBW Floor 3 make sure Monica has at
    least one armband at a high level.
    - You should find plenty of Magic Brassards in chests.
  + You should already have one of the armbands at the Crystal Brassard level.
    - Its major magic is Flame.
  + You should also build another armband to at least:
    - Thorn Armlet.
    - Its major magic is Cyclone.

> To do these build-ups (for either Monica OR Max), you have a choice:
  1) Fight in RBW Floors 1 and 2:
     ADVANTAGE:
      # You get more Synth Drops so can upgrade faster.
     DISADVANTAGES:
      # The critters cause a LOT more damage if they get you.
      # It takes more hits to defeat the critters.
      # You use more Repair powders.
  2) Go back to the Underground Channel.
     ADVANTAGES:
      # The critters don't do as much damage.
      # You need far fewer hits to defeat critters.
      # You use less Repair powders.
     DISADVANTAGE:
      # You get fewer Synth Drops so upgrading is a little slower.
        * This may be balanced by the faster defeat time.
  + Try both and see which you prefer.

*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Go to Floor 4.
  + Much of this is video mixed with control of action.

> VIDEO: Monica spots the Firbits and Max recognizes that something is wrong.
         - If you talk to the three Firbits lying around, you'll find they don't
           want to do anything.

> Talk to the Firbit sitting on the log.
  + He got separated from his buddies and when he saw them again, they were like
    that.
  + He's thirsty.

> Give the Grape Juice to the Firbit (press [Square]).
  + He gives Max a Fishing Rod, and instructions for its use, one Mimi and tells
    Max to go fish.

> SAVE (the Save Point is close to the entrance).

  + Practice fishing.
    - Stand by the pond and equip the Rod.
    - Put the Mimi on the hook.
    - Walk along the edge of the pond until you see a blue X with 'Start Fishing'
      in the lower left corner of the screen.
      # You may have to face toward the pond.
    - Press [X] to start.
    - Use [Left Analog] to move the hook out into the pond (locate with the
      upside-down yellow & white triangle).
    - Press [X] to cast the hook in the water and wait.

  + When the controller starts to tremble: 
    - WAIT UNTIL the Exclamation Point appears above Max's head.
      # *Immediately* pull [Left Analog] toward you and 'Hit!' appears above Max's
        head.
    - Start tapping [X].
      # If the vertical gauge gets too high you'll lose the fish.
      # Keep it at or just below the half-way mark.
    - The horizontal scale tells how close the fish is to the bank.
    - Ignore the orange arrows; if you try to follow them you usually lose the
      fish.

> The first fish you catch uses up the Mimi.
  + Go back to the fishing Firbit and he'll give you five more.
  + Use up these bait to earn more fishing points.
    - Fishing points are used to strengthen the Fishing pole.
    - Every time you run out of bait go back to the Firbit for more.

> Practice until you are ready to go on.
 OR
  + As soon as you have a Priscleen.

> Go back to the third pond.
  + You should have gotten several Poison Apples from Tores or from Skeleton
    Soldiers.
    - If not, go back and fight them again (the only way to get some).
  + Leaving the Great Fish Swamps with 'Move' will not cause you to lose Gilda.

> Bait your hook with a poison apple and start fishing.
  + As soon as the bait is taken...

> A huge purple fish comes to the surface.
  + Fish Monster says it has become, well, rather dirty.
    - It wants Max to catch a 'Priscleen' fish to clean himself up.
    - Max agrees if the Fish Monster will change the Firbits back the way they
      were.

  + Use a 'Prickly' as bait.
    - You get them from Himarras especially if you use the Bandit Brassard.
      # Path to this Armlet is described below.
  + As soon as you have a Priscleen go back to King Mardan.
  + Move around the pond beside King Mardan to the red 'Exclamation Point'.
    - Press [Square] and choose the Priscleen.
    - Max reminds him about making the Firbits better and he keeps his promise.

> Go back to where the Firbits were resting.
  + The fishing Firbit rushes up and tells you the others suddenly returned to
    normal.
    - The last thing the three remember is becoming thirsty and drinking swamp
      water.

> You are told to return to Sindain (use 'Move') which returns you to Sindain
  Station.
  + Walk into Sindain.
  + Go into the Firbit House.

 GETTING THE CARPENTERION

> Conda and the other Firbits run out of the house, into the forest.
  + Max and Monica hear a strange noise and see a gadget lift up out of the forest.
  + The gadget plants two trees beside the Firbit house.

> Conda invites them on board the Carpenterion.
  + He shows them the reactor where the 'Geostones' are put.
    - He shows them a geostone.
    - The Carpenterion decodes and records information packed into  the geostones.
  + Georama information is added as a choice on the 'Help' Menu.

> When they are back outside, Monica discovers the Time Gate.

> Currently it is just a dark and dry-looking field surrounded by dead bushes.
  + However, someone is there; go talk to him.
  + Look around for two Mini-Chests, one with a 'Fruit of Eden' and the other with
    a 'Potato Pie'.
    - Give both to Max to raise his HP to 56 and his shield to 12.
  + Return to the present.

> Check out the Carpenterion.
  + Walk across the Georama Field until you can see the Carpenterion icon in the
    bottom left corner of the screen.
    - For a full explanation of Georamas and using the Carpenterion, review the
      FAQ: Georamas & Fishing (cheatcodes.com).
  + Press [Select].
    - Choose 'Cleanup' on the top menu line.
    - Remove 4 rocks, 3 logs and 4 grass (patches of green) from the Field.
    - Remove the Thorn Tree nearest the Firbits House (it's too close to fit the
      fence around the house).
  + Press [Circle] then choose 'Place'.
    - Place the Thorn Tree a little further from the Firbits House.
    - If the tree glows red move it a little until it glows blue then place by
      pressing [X].
  + You won't need the grass, logs, or rocks.
    - Choose 'Place' and press [X] on one of these items.
      # A menu appears with:

         Break x 1
    - Move the Pointer to 'Break x 1' and press and hold [Right] until the number
      stops changing.
    - Press [X] and you're asked to confirm.
      # Choose YES.
    - Component materials are returned to your Item Bag (there is some loss if you
      made the part).

**  MAKE THE AQUARIUM  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> The purpose of the aquarium is to either:
  + Store wild fish for the Fishing Tournament.
    - BUT DON'T FEED THEM.
  + Later to breed and train fish for the Finny Frenzy Contest.

> Invent and make the Aquarium.
        Ideas = Fountain + Window + Wooden Box
    Materials = 5x Rolling Log + 4x Glass Material + 15x Water Element

> Store the Aquarium in the bottom line of your Item Bag.
  + Put the pointer on it and press [X].
    - There are three tanks, Rec (for recreation), Battle, and Breeding.

> Putting a fish in the tank.
  + Move the pointer to a fish and press [X].
  + The choices are:
     Put in Aquarium .......... You can check its stats and name it.
                                + Automatically goes in the Rec Tank.
     Roast on Cooking Stove ... If you bought the stove from Morton.
                                + Use instead of bread.
     Spectrumize .............. Adds 2 to Scale Attribute.
     Discard .................. Too many fish? Sell them for 50 G.

> Options in the fish tank.
  + Press [Triangle] to get the Menu (Press [O] to exit).
     View fish parameters ..... Length not weight is shown.
     Feed fish ................ You can drop any bait item.
     Name fish ................ You can only name it once.
     Remove from tank ......... Puts the fish back in the Item Bag.
     Move to other tank ....... Battle or Breeding Tanks
     Look into other tank ..... Battle or Breeding.
                                - The other two tanks also have menus but with
                                  fewer choices.

  + When you exit to the Item Bag, whatever tank you last looked in is the one
    you'll return to.
  + Later, for the Fishing Tournament.
    - You should name any large fish you catch (75 cm or more).
    - that way you don't accidently eat or sell your biggest fish.
    - BUT...
      # If you feed them they won't be eligible.

> Naming a Fish.
  + Rec tank holds a max of six fish.
  + As soon as you catch a fish of AT LEAST 75cm (don't bother to keep shorter
    ones, they don't weigh enough): 
    - Put it in the Rec Tank and name it ([Triangle] gets the menu).
      # For example, I had a 91 cm Bobo.
        * I added a space and 91 (for the length).
      # Put the fish back in the Item Bag.
        * In this example, the fish is now named '[Bobo 91]' (the square
          parentheses are included in the name).
    - Keep only the ten biggest for the Tournament.
  + If you don't name the fish, all Bobos have just the name 'Bobo'.
    - You'll lose track of the biggest ones and accidently eat or sell them.
    - Having the fish's length in the name tells you which ones to keep.

 FISH GOALS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> Fish Goals no longer show '???'.
  Goals for earlier floors:

  + None for Underground Channel.

  + Rainbow Butterfly Wood.
    - Floor 1 ... 70 cm or more.
    - Floor 2 ... 65 cm or more.
    - Floor 3 ... 46 cm or more.

  + When you get a big one, reeling in the fish will move the vertical scale into
    the danger zone faster.
    - Tap rather than press.
    - DON'T GO ABOVE THE THREE QUARTER MARK ON THE SCALE.

  + It will take longer to land a bigger fish.
    - Be PATIENT or you will lose it.

 STARTING ON SINDAIN GEORAMA
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> Defeat all enemies and exit Floor 5 through the gate...

> VIDEO:
  + As Max and Monica come out of the entry to the Woods, Conda
          greets them.
  + He takes them into the Sindain Georama and gives them a gift of a
    larger Item Bag (5 more slots) and:
      28 x Rolling Log
       1 x Sturdy Cloth
       1 x Glass Material
       1 x Sugar Cane
       1 x Scrap of Metal
       1 x Fire Element
      20 Water Element
  + You have enough to make 18x River parts.
    
  + Conda tells you to call the Carpenterion by pressing the [Select]
    Button.
    - You can't get further until you do this!

> The Carpenterion picks them up and Conda loads the geostone into the reactor.
  + The result: 
    - You can make the following Georama Parts.
      'Wooden House'
      'Iron Chimney 1'
      'Thorn Tree'
      'Wooden Stand'
      'Wooden Stairs'
      'River'
    The condition 'Forest Lake restored' has been made clear.
    The condition 'Glowing Mushrooms restored' has been made clear.

  + Conda then explains:
    - Use 'Analysis' to build a better future.
    - Polyn are energy needed to build parts.
    - Information is in 'Help'.

> He says he'll be in the last car of the train if you ever need Materials.

 THE GEORAMA
=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> How you put your georama together is up to you to some degree.
  + For the first Georama (Sindain), the following works so you get 100% completed.
  + Recommend: use these ideas to learn how to put a georama together.

> Press [Triangle].
  + Check 'Analysis' to find the two cleared conditions.

> The condition 'made clear' means you can make and place the appropriate parts,
  in this case the River. 
  + To restore Forest Lake choose 'Make'.
    - Make 18x River:
      # Move the Pointer to 'River' and press [X].
      # The Pointer indicates 'YES'.
      # Hold down [Right] to change the number from '1' to '18' (if you
        go past 18, use [Left] to go back).
      # Press [X] and confirm YES.
  + Chose 'Place' and put the river parts as close as you can get to 
    the Pond in front of Withered JUrak:
    - Start at the end nearest the Time Gate
    - Put 7 of the river parts parallel to the pond.
    - Put 3 river parts at right angles to one end of the 'river'.
    - Put 3 river parts at right angles to the other end.
    - Join the free ends with the rest of the river parts (5). 
  + You have a rectangular 'river'.
  + Check 'Analysis' which shows 10% of the Georama is completed.
  + 'Culture' still shows 10 Culture Points.

> Press the [Select] Button again to put Max back on the field.
  + Whenever you see the message: "There has been a change in the future."
    - Use the Time Gate beside Withered Jurak.

> In the Time Gate press [X].
  + When using a Time Gate, it doesn't matter who is the party's leader.
  + Explore the field in the future.
    - At the end of the field furthest from the Time Gate, there is a sunlit area.
      # In that area is a Mini-Chest with a 'Fruit of Eden'.
    - Give it to Monica to raise her HP to 56.
  + Give her Bread to fill her HP Guage.

> Return to the present and SAVE!

 INVENTIONS Chapter 2
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> Now Conda's Goods store is open, all you need is:
  + The right photo ideas.
  + Enough gilda to buy the Georama/Invention materials.

> The following items can be invented now.
  + By creating an 'Invention Card' for each item.
  + Then Max can make them on an as-needed basis.

  Bread:
       Ideas = Fireplace + Polly's Bakery Sign + Wheat Flour
   Materials = 1x Fire Element + 3x Flour + 1x Water Element

  Steve's Cannonball Arm II:
       Ideas = Constructor + Post + Rock
   Materials = 1x Destruction Crystal + 20x Scrap Metal + 5x Silver Ball

  Monica's Bone Rapier:
       Ideas = Bone + Cloth + Withered Jurak
   Materials = 5x Life Element + 5x Thick Hide + 30x Unknown Bone


NOTE 1: 'Cannonball Arm II is stronger than the arm Steve came with.
        + BUT Steve has to get in close to the monsters to defeat them.

NOTE 2: You can buy the Bone Rapier for 500 G, after finishing Floor 9. 
        + Cost to make: 650 G if you have to buy ALL the materials needed.
        + But you probably have enough 'Thick Hide' and you may have most of the
          other materials already.
        + YOUR CHOICE.

> Fire Element.
  + If it gets close, it boxes the person's ears HARD.
    - Use Monica's Armband (with Chill OR Wind attribute).
        OR 
    - Use the Ridepod.
  + If you have a Grenade Launcher:
    - Not the best weapon for the Fire Element as the gun's main attribute is
      Flame.
    - It works, but tap [X] as rapidly as you can to fire it (its a little slower
      if you press and hold [X]).
    - So many shots are needed, you may need to back away.
  + Items dropped ...
      Flame Crystal
      Flame Stone

> Sonic Bomber.
  + Attacks: 
    - It fires circular sonic beams.
    - It will also whirl around at you.
    - Use gun or armband or Ridepod.

> Go to the Georama Field to where the Carpenterion Icon shows up.
  + Press [Select] and [Triangle].
    - The Geostone is automatically decoded.

 Now you can make the parts:
  'Eye Tree 1'
  'Eye Tree 2'
  'Nose Tree'
 The condition 'Withered Tree restored' has been made clear.

> To make the three Tree parts you need several 'Light Element'.
  + You get these from the Pixies on the next floor 7.
  + If you don't have enough, visit Conda in the last train car.
    - If he doesn't have any, you'll have to wait until you finish Floor 7.

> Place Nose and Eyes on the island in the middle of the river:
  + 'Eye Tree 1' as close to one end of the island as you can.
    - Before pressing [X] for placement:
      # You can change orientation of parts using [R2] or [L2].
      # You can change your viewpoint with [R1] and [L1]. 
  + 'Eye Tree 2'as close to the other end of the island.
  + In between the two eye trees, place 'Nose Tree'.
    - If there is not enough room for it, you need to adjust the positions of the
      Eye trees.
      # Use 'Clean Up' to remove the trees from the field, then place them again.

> Check Analysis (25%):
  + Lanterns are lit for:
     Forest Lake Restored.
     Withered tree restored.
  + 7 yellow light bulbs are lit, but they still show '???'.

> Go to the future:
  + You'll find a very large but rather dead-looking tree just beyond the sunlit
    area.
    - The big holes are Jurak's nostrils!
  + You'll also find a Mini-Chest with a 'Witch Parfait'.
    - It's rather dark, so look carefully.
    - Give Monica the Witch Parfait to increase her shield to 12 (same as Max).

> Take a photo of one of the Eye Trees and the Nose Tree:
   Jurak's Eye.
   Jurak's Nose.

 FINAL ADVICE~RBW FLOOR 6
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> Battles on Floor 6.
  + Watch Max's HP carefully if you're trying to fill the wipe-out
    goal of using only Max's gun.
    - The Sonic Bomber is rather lethal particularly if it gets close.
    - The Fire element, if it claps its hand on Max's head (or 
      Monica's), takes a LOT of HP.

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

> Upgrading the Gun:
  + You should have two Bell Triggers.
  + Upgrade one of them to either:
    - The Star Breaker, a rapid action machine gun.
      # Individual bullets don't do a lot of damage.
      # But the cumulative effect is fairly good.
    - The Magic Gun, a 'beam' gun (like a laser.
      # Press and hold [X] for increased effect.
      # Stronger than the Star Breaker.

 More People Join
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> DONNY:
  + If you have an 'Indestructible Coin' and a 'Dark Coin', go to the Underground
    Channel entrance and ask Donny to be your friend.
    - Give him the two coins and he'll join.
    - In dungeons, he unlocks locked chests and opens locked areas.
    - You can buy Treasure Chest Keys from him.
      # Keep at least three in your item bag at all times.

> AUNT POLLY:
  + Go to the 'Polly's Bakery' and talk to Aunt Polly who needs you
    to run an errand (ALL steps must be done):
    - Deliver the 'Crusty Bread' to Morton's Sundries.
    - Go to his house and read the message on the door.
    - Talk to Morton again.
    - Talk to Aunt Polly again.
  + She joins after giving you the Crusty Bread (heals more than Bread but you
    won't be able to get any more).
    - In your party, she makes Bread.
    - In her house, she sells the same items as the Bakery.

> MILANE:
  + Go to the weapon shop in Palm Brinks.
    - Have Monica talk to Milane.
    - Milane gives her a Gladius and a task: Build the Gladius by two levels (here
      'levels' means upgrade two times).
      # You need to take it to the 'Chopper'.
    - Simplest Path:

                        --> Chopper
                       /
              --> Cliff
             /    Knife
      Gladius


      Gladius      -->  Cliff Knife  -->   Chopper 
  _______________________________________________________
  |Attack... 20 [34]|Attack... 21 [45]|Attack... 29 [60]|
  |Cyclone.. 10 [34]|Cyclone.. 14 [45]|Cyclone.. 27 [60]|
  |Beast....  5 [34]|Beast.... 14 [45]|Beast.... 36 [60]|
  |_________________|_________________|_________________|

  + The Gladius starts with one Synthesis Point; each level-up brings three more.
    - You'll need to synthesize about:
      # Cliff Knife:
        * Needs +4 value points = 2 Wind Crystals (totals 16 points)
        * Needs +9 Value Points = 3 Hunter Crystals (totals 14 points)
          ~ 5 Crystals = 5 Synth Points or raise weapon two levels.
        * Build Up when weapon is Gladius+2.
      # Chopper:
        * Needs 27 - 16 = 11 points = 4 Wind Crystals
        * Needs 36 - 14 = 22 points = 8 Hunter Crystals
          ~ 12 Crystals = 12 Synth Points or raise weapon
        * Build Up when weapon is Cliff Knife+4.
    - NOTE: The Cliff Knife can become the Sand Breaker (but there are better ways
            there).
            + Need a lot more levels for Cliff Knife to raise to Sand
              Breaker.
  + When you have the Chopper, talk to Milane again.
    - Add her to your party, so Monica can upgrade her swords faster.
    - In her house, she sells the same weapons as the Weapon Shop.

  Spirit          | Pixie           | 2 | Gift Capsule with: 3x Gooey Peach
  Undead          | Skeleton Soldier| 2 | - Attack with Holy Water


NOTE 1: Spider Lady is expensive (3 Gold Bars = 3,000 G).
        - She isn't strong enough, at least to begin with, to make it worth while.
        - If you want every Badge, wait until you have at least 20 Gold Bars.

NOTE 2: For the Skeleton Soldier:
        - Put one 'Holy Water' bottle in an Active Item slot and Lock-On.
        - Press [Square] to throw the bottle.
          # The soldier MUST be defeated in one blast to get the Badge (a musical
            note will show).

> To give a Gift capsule:
  + SAVE before you enter the floor.
    - If you miss, reload and try again so you don't lose the Gift Capsule.
  + It must contain three gifts that the monster likes. 
    - Put the capsule in an Active Item slot.
    - Highlight that slot.
  + Find the monster, making sure it is alone (you don't want to be attacked by
    other monsters).
    - Lock-On to the monster.
      # You need to be fairly close.
    - Use [X] to throw the capsule. 
      # If aimed correctly, a musical note appears above the monster's head.
    - Defeat the monster and the Badge is yours.

> To use a Badge:
  + Go to 'Character' in the main Menu: 
    - Select the Monster Badge Box (icon to the left and slightly above Monica).
    - Then move the pointer to the Badge you are interested in.
  + There are two choices:
    - In the dungeon, choose either 'Status' or 'Transform'.
    - If you are NOT in a dungeon, the only choice is 'View Status'.

**  GET THE SUNDROP  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Now that Monica has the Himarra Badge, she needs to go Back to Floor 1 of RBW
  so that she can get the 'Sundrop'.
  + You will not use the Sundrop until you get to the final floor of RBW.
  + But you need the experience of doing a Monster Transformation.

> Go to RBW Floor 1.
  + As soon as you're there, go to Main Menu, Character, and choose the Badge Box.
    - The Badge box contents are displayed.
  + At the moment there is only the Himarra Badge (its type is Flora).
    - Click on the Badge and you get a menu.
      # the top item is 'Transform' (only visible when in a dungeon).
      # The bottom is 'View Status'.
    - Choose View Status:
      # On the left is a picture of the Himarra.
      # On the right is the Status Screen.

    - 'Monster Morph' refers to the amount of time that Monica can walk the floor
      in her Monster Transformation form.
      # Morph Points (64/64) are included as well as a red Morph Gauge.
      # During the Transformation, the Morph gauge slowly reduces.
        * Partly because of time passing.
        * Partly through attacking.
        * Partly by hits from monsters.
      # When it is zero, Monica can no longer transform.
      # Automatically refills as soon as the dungeon is exited.
      # Just as in other weapons, Experience increases as the Badge levels up.
        * However the amount of experience reduces as the Badge Levels Up.
    - Most Badges have two attacks, but some have only one.

WARNING: WHEN TRANSFORMED:
         - Hits from monsters uses up MONICA's HP.
         - Keep an eye on the HP and heal as needed.

WARNING: STATUS CHANGES:
         - Such as being poisoned.
         - Change back to Monica to use healing items such as Antidote, Soap, etc.

> As soon as you see a Himarra ON ITS OWN.
    - While you're doing the following activities, the game is temporarily
      suspended.
  + Go to the Main Menu: 
    - Select 'Character'.
    - Move the Pointer to the Badge Box and choose 'Transform'.
  + Talk to the Himarra.
    - Video: it will give you the Sundrop.
  + You can talk to other Himarras and also the Man-Eating Grass monsters.
    - Other kinds of monsters (on this floor the Skeleton Soldier) still treat
      your character as an enemy.
  + Defeat all enemies and exit the floor.

 BUILDING UP SWORDS WITH MILANE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> Now you have Milane:
  + Put her in your party.
    - Having her in your party doesn't affect the Georama of the Future.
  + Use Monica to walk the floors and build up her swords.
  + With Milane
    - The Blue ABS gauge seems to fill more quickly.
    - You get an extra Synth point each time the weapon levels up.
    - That extra Synth Point means you can upgrade the Attributes sooner so the
      Sword will Build Up much faster.
  + You should already have at least:
    - A Bastard Sword (possibly Shamshir).
    - A Broad Sword (possibly two).
    - You also have a Chopper.

> Here are basic upgrades.
  + While Monica cannot work on all branches
    - With Milane in her party, the build-ups go MUCH faster.

> There are a lot of choices at this point.
  + Your most recent Build Up was:
    - From the Gladius to the Chopper.
    - From Bone Rapier to Evilcize.
  + Continue building up these two branch of Monica's Swords.

> Chopper can be built to the Choora:

NOTE 1: The Broad Sword can also be built up to the Kitchen Knife (the middle
        choice) which is a better weapon than its name suggests).
        + But the Kitchen Knife builds only to the 'Serpent Slicer'.
        + Monica gets a Serpent Slicer as a gift at the end of Chapter 3.
          # So this Build Up is not dealt with here.

NOTE 2: The Sax can also be built to the Antique sword.
        + But that path is not the best for Sax.

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

> Make sure Monica talks to a Himarra to get the Sundrop.
  + You need it before the Boss Floor.
  + While transformed by the Flora Badge, she can talk to:
    # Himarras.
    # Man-Eating Grass.
    # BUT SKELETONS WILL STILL FIGHT!!!

> Put Milane in your party (it won't affect the Georama).
  + Repeat floors to build up at least two of the above swords.
    - Recommend:
       Dusack
       Wise Owl
    - If you want more swords:
       Ruler's Sword
       Drain Seeker

  - These paths will be repeated in the Introduction to the 3rd Walkthrough (for
    Chapter 3) for any weapons you haven't upgraded.

  + If you don't have Donny go through RBW Floors 6 thru 10 to build up enough
    gilda to buy the two coins he wants (total 3,000 gilda).
  + You should have Gerald, Ferdinand, and Granny Rosa.
  + You should have Gordon, Adel, Aunt Polly, Milane in Sindain

> Others will be discussed as you need them to join.

> RAINBOW BUTTERFLY UNITED (ONE-TIME-ONLY)
  + It is NOT easy to get.

> Max must first hit all seven of the Yellow stamens (they look like 
  tentacles) in the flower's center.
  + The Butterfly splits into seven small butterflies, each one of
    the rainbow colors.
  + Monica can be used instead of Max.
    - But you would then have to switch to Max for the Photo.
    - You can use her in the fight itself (switching as needed).

> The Scoop is of the Butterflies Uniting.
  + Hit any Butterfly EXCEPT the Red one with gun or magic.
    - Message says they must be hit in a certain order (but this is
      the only way to get them to unite).
    - Turn Max to face the center part of the flower.
    - Swing the viewpoint up to catch the Uniting Butterfly.
      # You need a shot just AFTER the glow fades:
        * So the picture is of the large Butterfly.
        * But don't wait too long.
      # If you have it, you'll get the ringing sound and the orange 
        lightbulb.
      # If not, you'll need to repeat the steps.
    - WATCH HP and heal poison (or goo)!

      she attacked Max and Monica.
