**   NEGATIVE SPECIAL EFFECTS  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> There are several negative effects:
  + One is 'Fragile' and this causes WHP to reduce more quickly.
    - Can't be added; comes 'built-in'.
    - Looks like a blue and white eyeball.
    - Use an 'Indestructible Coin' to cancel this effect.
  + The other is 'Poverty' because the enemies give very few gilda. 
    - Also can't be added; comes 'built-in'.
    - Icon is a grey and white (empty?) coin bag.
    - A wealth coin cancels this effect.
  + 'Dark' is both good and bad.
    - Hits are harder against enemies.
    - But some of your HP is used to make the hits.
      # Your HP slowly decreases even if the monsters DON'T hit you.
      # If this icon remains in later, stronger weapons, the reduction in your
        health is speeded up.
    - Cancel this effect with a 'Bull's Eye' Coin.


> When a negative effect is cancelled, the opposite (positive) effect is NOT 
added.
  + For example:
    - 'Fragile' is cancelled when an 'Indestructible Coin' is added.
      # To make the weapon's WHP reduce more slowly, a second Indestructible Coin
        must be added.
    - 'Poverty' is cancelled by adding a wealth Coin.
      # To increase the amount of gilda dropped by monsters, a second Wealth Coin
        must be added.
    - To increase critical damage after cancelling Dark, a second Bull's Eye Coin
      must be added.

**  SIMILAR EFFECTS  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> There are two effects that are very similar.
  + One is 'Absorption' (the yellow spiral on green).
    - When you hit an enemy, some of the damage that would have been done is
      converted into one or two HP points for your character.
  + The second is 'Heal' (the blue star agains a dark blue background).
  + You could add a synthesized 'Healing' Coin to cancel the 'Absorption' effect,
    but it isn't really necessary.
  + YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH THESE EFFECTS AT THE SAME TIME.

> Differences between these two effects:
  + 'Absorption' only heals when the weapon is used.
    - But not every time it's used.
  + 'Healing' is preferable because healing takes place (one point every few
    steps):
    - While the weapon is equipped.
   AND
    - While the character walks the floor.

**   POSITIVE EFFECTS  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> The rest of the coins add the following special effects:
  + Bull's Eye ....... Increases the damage done.
  + Indestructible ... The weapon is more durable (WHP drops more slowly).
  + Wealth ........... Increases the Gilda dropped by enemies.
  + Experience ....... Speeds the experience (ABS) gained from blue Synth Drops.
  + Bandit ........... Sometimes an item carried by an enemy is stolen from them.
  + Time ............. Sometimes the enemy is put into the 'Stopped' state.
                       - For a few moments, they cannot move or hit back.

> You can add a total of 8 different special effects.
  + Each coin needs one Synthesis Point.
    - Only one of each type of effect may be added.
  + They show in the Weapon Status Screen above the WHP Gauge and below the
    picture of the weapon.
    - In this order across the screen:

Wealth| Poison| Time| Bandit| Indestructible|  Healing  | Bull's Eye| Experience|

**   RECOMMENDED BUILD-UPS ~~ CHP 4  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> During Chapter 4, you were recommended to continue to build (-->) weapons for
  both Max and Monica (choose among them or do them all).

  + Max's:
    - Stinger Wrench --> Poison Wrench.
    - Cubic Hammer   --> Digi Hammer.
    - Wild Cat       --> Sexy Panther.
    - Jurak Gun      --> Question Shooter.
    - Build up Dark Viper.

  + Build up Monica's Armbands:
    - Platinum Brassard     --> Athena's Armlet (Fire emphasis).
    - 2nd Platinum Brassard --> Destruction Brassard (Lightning emphasis).
    - Pocklekul             --> Spirit Brassard (Cyclone emphasis).
    - Thorn Armlet          --> Moon Armlet (Chill emphasis).

  + Build Monica's Swords:
    - Serpent Slicer --> Tsukikage
    - Claymore       --> Cross Heinder.
    - Antique Sword  --> Halloween Blade.
    - Brave Ark      --> Ruler's Sword.
    - Wise Owl Sword --> Lamb's Sword (alternating Light and Dark Sword).
    - Drain Seeker   --> Sargatanas.
    - Build up Small Sword.

NOTE:  You can build these weapons to the point where the new weapon's name is
       displayed and the wavery blue lines show in the Weapon Status Screen.
       BUT:
       + The build-up will NOT be possible until certain monsters are defeated.


  HOWEVER...


> Attribute buildup:
  + You CAN build attributes to 110 points (Durable is less) and in some cases
    (indicated below) to 125.
  + The box charts below give the MINIMUM values needed for the listed attribute.
    - The '-->' (followed by values) are those NEEDED for the FINAL upgrade of
      these weapons.
    - 'Attack' values are not included since these automatically increase every
      time the weapon levels up.
    - If you have 'spare' Synthesis Points, build up any of the other attributes.

> General rules for building attributes (synthesize the crystals first):
  + Power Crystals (Attack) and Destruction Crystals (Smash) make weapons 
stronger.
  + For the following monster types:
    - Beast ............. Hunter Crystals (Beast attribute).
    - Reptile ........... Sea Dragon Crystals (Scale).
    - Aquatic ........... Sea Dragon Crystals (Scale).
    - Undead ............ Holy Crystals (Exorcism).
    - Flying Critters ... Wind Crystals (Cyclone).
  + For the others, one of the four magics (as indicated in the blue Monster Note
    Book in your Item Bag):
      Flame (Fl.), Chill (Ch.), Lightning (Li.), or Cyclone (Cy.)

  + Check your blue Monster Note Book.
    - As soon as you have defeated at least one critter, you can find their
      weakness(es).
    - You can also find out how many you have defeated (the book keeps a running
      total).

NOTE: If you didn't take advantage of Lin in Chapter 4, you should raise at
      least the following armbands:
         # Destruction Brassard.
         # Spirit Brassard.

**  SHORT-CUT TO BUILDING WEAPONS  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> If you have enough medals, you can buy a 'Name-Change Ticket' from Mayor Need
  (on the train) for 40 medals each.
  + When you have a Name-Change Ticket in your item Bag, there is an addition to
    the menu for all weapons.
    - Change Name ..... Choose this if you want to change a weapon.
  + Name-Change Tickets not only change a weapon's name but also change the weapon
    itself.
    - For example.
      # Suppose you have a 'Digi Hammer'.
        * The build up to Heavy Hammer requires that the Digi Hammer defeat two
          monsters: An 'Iron Mask' and a 'Pirate Eye'.
        * With a Name-Change Ticket in the Item Bag, put the indicator on the Digi
          Hammer and press [X].
        * Choose 'Change Name' and the screen of the 'Name Change Menu' is
          displayed.
        * By:
          1) Backspacing (<) to the first character in 'Digi'
          2) Pressing 'DEL' four times (to delete the word 'Digi').
          3) Pressing 'INS' five times (to insert five spaces).
          4) Selecting the characters to spell 'Heavy' (not all capitals).
         NOTE: you MUST spell the name exactly as it would appear on the 'real'
               weapon.
        * The weapon becomes the '[Heavy Hammer]'
          NOTE: The game adds the square brackets to distinguish the renamed
                Hammer from one that has been built up from scratch.
      # The new weapon has the appearance AND the attributes of the Heavy Hammer.
      NOTE: You could sell the [Heavy Hammer] for 800 G!

  + ANY WEAPON CAN BE CHANGED TO ANY OTHER WEAPON WITH THIS METHOD.
    - For example: You can change a sword into a Heavy Hammer.

> WARNING:
  + THE NEWLY NAMED WEAPON HOLDS THE *MINIMUM* ATTRIBUTE VALUES OF THE HEAVY
    HAMMER NOT...
    ...REPEAT, NOT THE VALUES YOU MAY HAVE BUILT UP.

    - For example a Digi Hammer which had a high Smash attribute (say 125), when
      the name change takes effect, has the reduced value of that attribute, 110.

> BENEFIT:
  + Suppose you take a weapon that has had NO build-up such as a 'Broad Sword' or
    a 'Battle Wrench' and change its name to 'Heavy Hammer'.
    - Here are the changes in Attribute values:

       Broad Sword   --> [Heavy Hammer]
         WHP = 48           WHP = 85
    ________________    _________________
    |Attack.... 22 |    |Attack.... 101 |
    |Durable .. 25 |    |Durable ..  80 |
    |Chill.....  0 |    |Chill..... 130 |
    |Cyclone... 21 |    |Cyclone...   0 |
    |Smash.....  0 |    |Smash..... 110 |
    |Exorcism.. 21 |    |Exorcism.. 110 |
    |______________|    |_______________|


> SUGGESTIONS:
  + If you have only enough Medals for a single Name-Change Ticket.
    - Change a weapon to LEGEND for the fight against Gaspard.
  + Buy the least expensive weapons (Classic Gun at 150 G) to be renamed.

  + Change the name to 'LEGEND' (yes all capitals).
    - This weapon builds up levels quickly.
      # It starts with two Synthesis Points and adds 6 every Level-Up.
    - You can use the Synthesis points to build attributes to 250 points.
      # Start with Smash.
      # Add coins as you can.
  + In the examples below, I used a Battle Wrench.
    - You can just as easily and more cheaply use a Classic Gun.

     Battle Wrench   -->  LEGEND (hammer)
       WHP = 36              WHP = 100

> If you have more medals, you could change several other weapons:

  + Change the name of a wrench to '7th Heaven'.

     Battle Wrench   -->  7th Heaven (Sword)
        WHP = 36             WHP = 90

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

> You may have noticed small stars appearing around the sword icon (when you have
  the dungeon SCREEN).
  + The minimum is three stars and the maximum is seven stars.
    - These are for 'Elemental Absorb':
      - Where the sword can absorb magic fired at her by monsters.
    - If Monica stands 'On Guard' (press and hold [R1]) when she is being attacked
      by magic:
      # The stars absorb the magic and she doesn't get hurt.
    - BUT THERE'S MORE.
  + She has to learn the 'Elemental Absorb' skill.
    - Go to Starlight Canyon Floor 9: Little Dragon Counterattack.
      # When faced with one of the Gemrons (within range, but not too close), put
        her 'On Guard'.
      # NOTE: as the Gemron spits magic at her, each spit ball lights up one of
        the stars.
      # You will get a message that Monica has learned this skill and several
        message boxes explain how to use the skill.
  + Most important aspects:
    - The magic is stored until you intentionally use it.
      # Stay on guard until all stars are glowing.
        * If you go off guard, the stars remain lighted.
      # The different magics color the stars differently.
        * Green is Wind.
        * Yellow is Lightning.
        * Red is fire.
        * Blue is Ice.
        * Absorb from both the Wind Gemron and the Holy Gemron is GREEN.
    - To throw the magic back, press [L1] while still Guarding.
      # If you have released the guard:
        * To attack, get into and hold the Guard position then press [L1].
    - BUT DON'T press [X].

WARNING:
  + Only one type of magic can be absorbed at any one time.
    - If a different magic is absorbed, the stars already filled empty without
      an attack.

  + Physical attacks, such as Poison Balls, Goo Balls, etc., cannot be absorbed.

**  MONSTER TRANSFORMATION BADGE BUILD-UP  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Chapter 3: Starlight Canyon.
  + You were told how to get the 'Reptile Badge' (Floor 4).
    - It was recommended you build the Badge to at least Level 20.
      # At this level it was possible to fill the Monster Transformation Wipe-Out
        Goals.
    - Then you were recommended to build the Badge to level 26.
      # At this level, the Badge was able to evolve.

**  STEVE'S EQUIPMENT  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Max can invent a number of items for Steve:
  + The following are the items that increase his 'Capacity' the most.

WEAPONS:

  + He got the Nova Cannon in Luna Lab
    - 83 WHP.
    - Slow firing, but very strong attack.
  + You can make the Barrel Cannon III.
    - However, the Barrel Cannon seems to make Steve swing more from side to side
      as he moves forward.

  Steve's Barrel Cannon III
  + 72 WHP, but overall Capacity is 20 Pts more than with Nova Cannon.
       Ideas = Waterfall + Barrel + Water Tank
   Materials = 17 Rolling Log + 25x Gunpowder + 4x Hunter Crystal


BODIES:

 Steve's Super-Alloy Body:
       Ideas = Gold Store + Search Light + Work Equipment
   Materials = 1x Gold Bar + 10x Hunk of Copper + 5x Silver Ball


FEET:

 Steve's Propellor Leg (fast; floats, needs practice):
       Ideas = Fan + Cart + Windmill Feather
   Materials = 7x Wind Element + 10x Silver Ball

 Steve's Buggy {foot} (hard to steer; needs a lot of practice):
       Ideas = Belt  + Car + System5WP2
   Materials = 30x Scrap of Metal + 8x Thick Hide + 7x Fire Element


FUEL TANK:

 Steve's Cleaner Pack:
       Ideas = Air Cleaner + Belt + Vacuum
   Materials = 50x Scrap of Metal + 4x Thick Hide + 8x Silver Ball

**  CHAPTER SUMMARY  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Chapter 4 takes place at the Veniccio Coast.
  + The dungeon is Ocean's Roar Cave.
  + The Georama is Veniccio, used to restore the Luna Lab (otherwise known as
    'Lunatic Wisdom Laboratory').

> The first major task of the chapter:
  + Max and Monica must remove the controlling device off the head of Shingala.
    - Shingala is the Shigura (Sea Dragon) child rescued by Pau.
    - Shingala is injured, so the two must go to the Shigura Village for Sea
      Dragon Medicine.

> Second major task:
  + After healing Shingala, they see Gaspard's Battleship heading for the Shigura
    Village.
    - When they get there, they find the adult Shigura have been enslaved by Dr.
      Jaming with the same device.
    - They use the Shigura's heads to defeat Dr. Jaming by knocking over his 
craft.
      # The last view of Dr. Jaming is with a Shigura touching him with its 
tongue.

> With the rescue of the Shigura, Luna Lab is completely restored.
  + Entering the Central Lab you get a long video which gives explanation of the
    importance of the Atlamillia Stones.
  + There are three:
    - Orange = Sun Stone, in the hands of Emperor Griffon.
    - Red    = Earth Stone, in Max's hands.
    - Blue   = Moon Stone, held by Monica.
  + Max meets his mother (through a holographic communicator) who gives the
    explanation.
    - They find that Emperor Griffon is now 10,000 years in the past.

> They are surprised to find Dr. Jaming's grandson (also Dr. Jaming) in the
  Central Lab.
  + The younger Dr. Jaming is using his grandfathers invention (the floating
    vehicle) which is based on 'Aeroharmonics'.
    - His own invention is in space/time and results in the train called Ixion.
      # Ixion can be used to travel 10,000 years to the past.
    - They are told that it will take time to build the train.
  + The rebel forces (which include Max's mother) who are fighting against Griffon
    are in trouble.
    - Emperor Griffon has destroyed the origin point of Paznos, the mobile
      stronghold for the rebel army.
    - The origin point of Paznos is the Gundorada Workshop.

**  ADD PAU TO YOUR PARTY  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Ask Pau (in his cave) to join the party.
  + You'll need a carrot for him to join.

> When he is in your party:
  + He displays a map of the dungeon floor as soon as you enter it.
  + When you find the Magic Crystal:
    - If you haven't already found the dungeon gate key, the red dot of the 
monster
      who holds it will flash.
    - When you come upon to a Mimic or King Mimic, he will stop you from opening
      it and warn you.
      # You can then choose to fight or not.
      # Gives you time to position yourself with reference to the Chest's opening.

NOTE 1:
  + With Pau in your party (recommended for Mount Gundor), the level-ups of your
    weapons slow down without Gerald or Milane.
    - But at this stage, probably Pau is the most useful.
    - You may wish to go back to earlier dungeons to raise:
      # Max's guns with Gerald in the party.
      # Monica's swords with Milane in the party.

NOTE 2:
  + With Pau in your party, and the Propellor Blades or Buggy for Steve's
    transport, you may want to fill the Time goals on earlier floors.
    - With Pau, review the map to see if there is a locked area.

    - IF, yes, IF there are no locked rooms AND no mimics on the floor:
      # Do a speedy fly through with Steve to get all the monsters.
      # You should do most floors fast enough to get the Time Goal.
    - Time Goals in the Underground Channel are very short.
      # If there is no locked room you MIGHT be able to fill a time goal if you:
        * Use Steve.
        * Don't stop to pick up Gilda or Synth Drops.
        * I decided it wasn't worth the time spent (I'd rather put that time to
          building up weapons and the Gemron Monster Badge).

> Mt. Gundor is a volcano and when you arrive in the train, there are bright red
  embers falling all around you.

> Heim Rada Georama.
  + Go up the slope toward the Entrance Arch to Heim Rada.

  VIDEO:
  + Max and Monica walk down into Heim Rada.
    - As they do, a large shadow flows across them.

  + They see Gaspard's Battleship going toward Mt. Gundor.
    - Monica:  What's he up to now?
    - Max:     Gaspard must be hopping mad because we've been restoring all the
               origin points.
    - Monica:  There's no way we're going to let him stop us, right?
    - Max:     I wonder if Gaspard is causing these embers too?
    - Monica:  No doubt about it! There's no way we can start bringing back wood
               and straw houses now.
    - Max:     He's trying to stop us from building so we can't revive any more
               origin points.
    - When Max says "Let's hurry!", Monica says emphatically: "Yeah!"

  + When the Video is over, you are looking toward a second Arch in the distance.


> Locations:
  + A number of places have intermittent steam rising (the geysers).

  + To the right of the Entrance Arch is the Time Gate.
    - Beyond that and to the right about half-way between the two gates is Mount
      Gundor.
    - To the left and also between the two gates is an area that drops down to a
      number of ponds.

  + Beside the Arch leading to the dungeon is a SAVE point.
    - SAVE!!! (Monsters continue to get WORSE).

  + Get photos and a Scoop:

**   FIRST PHOTOS & SCOOP  **

> On the way across to the Dungeon Arch (use the 'Whirlwind' logo to move whenever
  possible):
  + Take a closeup photo of one of the Hot Springs.
    - Title: 'Geyser'.
  + Take one of Mt. Gundor (the tallest peak of the mountain).

> With your back to the Dungeon Arch go to your right until you find a place to
  walk down.
  + As you go down a ramp, on your right is a pond divided by a long mound.
    - Take a photo where water is bubbling on the ponds.
       Title: 'Hot-spring Pond'.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 SCOOP: HOT SPRINGS SPIRIT
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> Game Time must be between 12:00 midnight and 3:30 A.M. for the SCOOP.

  + Across the pond and next to where the pond divides is a tall pillar against a
    cliff-like background.
    - To the left of that is a stream of water pouring down into the pond.

  + Focus the camera just to the left of the pillar and press [Square] to take the
    photo.
    - You should see a ghostly figure.
    - If you get 'Hot-Spring Pond' again, move the viewpoint so the figure is
      centered and zoom in.

 OTHER PHOTOS

> One picture that was missed in the Walkthrough for Rainbow Butterfly Wood:
  + QUARTZ.
    - Go to the Jurak Mall in Sindain's future.
    - On the top of the JUrak Arms Shop is a bluish colored Crystal.
    - Focus on the crystal and zoom in. That is Quartz.


> A hint for a photo found with thanks to 'kursaal' on the Playstation Underground
  Internet site:
  + CINDERS:
    - The clue is that Monica says you can't build houses of wood and straw as
      these would burn up in the rain of red-hot embers.
    - Make and place a straw Shed.
    - Go to Heim Rada Stop then return:
      # The Shed is now a heap of smoking ashes.
      # Take a photo of the heap to get 'Cinders'.
  + 'kursaal' suggested a Straw House, but the straw Shed works as well and uses
     the least amount of Georama Materials.
            Shed = 2 Rolling Log + 6 Bundle of Hay
     Straw House = 4 Rolling Log + 20 Bundle of Hay + 2 Rough Rock
      # After you've taken the photo, you can use 'Clean Up' to remove the mess,
        but you don't get any materials back.

    Bombs.
  + Repeat until you have 10 Final Bombs.

**   MOUNT GUNDOR DUNGEON  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> The dungeon in this chapter is Mt. Gundor (called MG in the Walkthrough).
  + You have to climb to the Peak of the mountain, then climb back down inside the
    volcano.
  + Gate Key:
    - On the way up ..... Magma Rock.
    - On the way down ... Rope.

  + Dungeon Key (locked areas):
    - On the way Up ..... Stone T (a 'T'-shaped magma stone)
    - On the way down ... White Wind Vase.

  + On the way up, the locked area's 'gate' is a tiny fumerole just in front of a
    passage blocked by several magma rocks.
    - Use the 'Stone T' there (red exclamation point).

  + On the way down, there are vertical red-hot lava streams blocking the room.
    - Use the White Wind Vase to cool and solidify the lava.

> Georama.
  + For several floors you get few things to make.
  + Even when you do get items, you cannot build anything until you get mud to
    close off the steam geysers.
    - Have to block the geysers to make a stable foundation for the Georama.
  + A number of conditions will be 'made clear'.
    - These are in preparation for other Georama activities.

> TIME LIMITS on dungeon floors.
  + With Pau and the 'Propellor' blades (or the 'Buggy') on Steve:
    - You may want to challenge those Time Limits in the Underground Channel!
      + But the times are very short and the floor may be large.
      + I didn't find the activity of enough value.
    - Also any other floors in the other dungeons you haven't yet filled a Time
      Limit for.

> SPHEDA in this dungeon:
  + Along the walls of the upward path dungeon are long steam vents.
    - Try not to lose the Sphere down these vents.
  + The downward side of Mount Gundor is inside the volcano.
    - There are narrow lava streams along the wall.
    - Although they appear to be solid, if the Sphere goes onto them, it is out
      of bounds.

> WORLD MAP:
  + Once you enter the first Dungeon Floor:
    - Choices are:
      G  Heim Rada
      S  Heim Rada Stop
      D  Mount Gundor

> CHOICES...
  + YOU MAY WANT TO WORK THROUGH FLOORS 1 THROUGH 11 QUICKLY.
    - Don't bother getting medals
    AND
    - Pick up the Geostones...
    IN ORDER TO:
    - Build the Georama.

> Go back and get medals later (if you want them).
  + The most useful item you can get for medals is a 'Name Change Ticket'.
    - With one you can turn a low grade weapon such as a Classic Gun or Battle
      Wrench into a very much stronger weapon.
    - See 'Shortcut to Building Weapons' (above in this Walkthrough).

  surrounded by a high fence.
  + In the center is a pit (the remains of a volcanic crater) surrounded by a
    lower fence.
  + There are a number of buildings on the far side of the pit.

> The area is large and it takes some time to get around it.
  + But there are four 'Jump Gates':
    - One is 'In front of the Time Gate'.

  + It is different from previous monsters.
    - Wields a pair of wicked blades (much damage; watch HP).
      # Blades look like extensions of its arms (instead of hands?).
    - Leaps and pounds you with the blades.
  + Guards well. 
    - Use distance weapons.
  + Items dropped ... 
     Hunk of Copper
     Protector Crystal
     Cheese

> Rifle Wolf
  + Similar to the Hunter Fox, but wearing a blue coat.
    - Fires his rifle at you.
    - If you're close, it will use the weapon as a club.
  + Items dropped ... 
     Gunpowder
     Hunter Crystal
     Prickly

> Stick Joe
  + Odd looking humanoid critter (floats) with trailing stringers.
    - If it twirls, the stringers act like blades.
    - Its spitball can cause the Stop condition.
      # Use Heart-Throb Cherry OR Mighty Healing.
      # Put a 'Non-Stop Amulet' in an Active Item Slot.
    - It also may float high enough that it cannot be hit.
      # The Gemron Transformation finds it particularly difficult to reach.
      # Go closer and circle around it to lure it down.
  + Items dropped ...
     Life Element
     Power Crystal
     Escape Powder

    - Make sure the Question Shooter has a red bulb showing the 'Rifle Wolf' has
      been defeated.

  |_______________|________|___|_____|

> Steam Tore:
  + Look like a khaki-colored version of the first Tore you met, but with red 
eyes.
    - Try to get rid of it quickly so it cannot spit out any Steam Kotores.
    - IF it crosses its stick arms, it's about to spit them out.
  + Items dropped ... 
     Rolling Log
     Flame Crystal
     Poison Apple

> Steam Kotore:
  + Similar to the regular Kotores.
    - Does more damage.
    - Gives nothing, not even Synth Drops.
    - If you defeat any, their picture is displayed in the Monster Notes book and
      the count is added to the total monsters defeated for the floor. 
  + Items dropped ... 
     Nothing

> Thunder Gundron
  + Like the Thunder Gemron.
    - Spits out Thunderballs (more damage).
    - Monica's Ice Gemron can talk to it.
    - The transformation can also defeat this critter without being attacked.
  + Items dropped ... 
     Thunder Element
     Lightning Crystal
     Lightning Stone

> Wind Gundron:
  + Similar to the Wind Gemron But they have floating colored balls above their
    heads (like antenna).
    - Like the Wind Gemron, it is good at spitting out Wind balls.
    - Use Monica's Transformation to defeat them.

 FINAL ADVICE~~MG FLOOR 2
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> You should complete this floor twice.

  + Once if you want to avoid using a 'Seal-Breaking Scroll'.
    - Build up the Reptile Badge (choose the 'Thunder Gemron Transformation').
    - If you don't have this third level of the Badge, go back to Ocean's Roar
      Cave:
      # Floor 11. Banquet of the Dead is a good one to upgrade the Badge.
    - If you don't have this Badge at all, go back to Starlight Canyon:
      # Floor 4 is where you get the Badge :
      # How to get and upgrade it:
        * Use the Dark Cloud 2 Walkthrough: Chapter 3.
        * When this Badge is at level 20, you can fill the 'Wipe-Out with Monster
          Transformation' goals in Starlight Canyon.
  NOTE: You can raise other Badges, but it's very, very slow (time spent may not
        be worth it).
        + As far as I can see, the only reason to do so is because you get a
          'Monster Drop' each time a badge has and evolutionary upgrade.
        + These Drops when spectrumized give at least +4 for each weapon 
attribute.

  + Once to fill the 'Max's Gun' Wipe-Out Goal.
    - BE CAREFUL:
      # If you accidently swing your hammer at the 'breath' attack of any Gundron,
        you'll hit the breath-ball back at the monster.
        * This will hit and damage the monster, disqualifying you from filling the
          Wipe-Out Goal!
      # If you are holding [X] to fire, and then get hit, that stops Max from
        firing from a moment.
        * This causes Max to do the Power Attack with the Hammer.
        * If it hits the monster, the Wipe-Out goal is NOT filled.
        * Release [X] as soon as he gets hit.

  + You may need a third time to fill the Time Goal (use Ridepod).

> Wipe-Out Goal Problems:
  + FILLING THIS GOAL MAKES FOR A REALLY DANGEROUS FLOOR!!!
    - WATCH THAT HP! 
    - CARRY LOTS OF HEALING ITEMS!
  + The Stick Joes are a REAL PROBLEM!
    - They can cause a Stop condition.
    - Put an Anti-Stop Amulet in the place of Max's Camera.
    - Make sure Monica has one in one of her slots too, in case you have to switch
  + Filling the ITEMS only Wipe-Out Goal:
    - All critters float making it hard to reach them with Improved Bombs.
    - You have to let them get pretty close.
      # DON'T PRESS [X] OR YOU'LL HIT THEM WITH THE HAMMER (CANCELS WIPE-OUT 
GOAL).

> REMINDER:
  + If Max hasn't invented them already:

 BOMB:
       Ideas = Candle + Pot + Weapon Shop Sign
   Materials = 1x Flame Crystal + 5x Gunpowder + 1x Wind Crystal


 IMPROVED BOMB:
       Ideas = Candle + Coal + Egg
   Materials = 1x Bomb + 3x Flame Crystal + 3x Wind Crystal


 LIGHTSPEED {higher grade bomb}:
      Ideas = Candle + Flower + Rock
  Materials = 10x Light Element + 1x Holy Stone + 5x Lightning Crystal

  + If you are short of 'Holy Stone':
    - Defeat some Holy Gemrons.
      # You can find them in Starlight Canyon:
        * Floor  5. Elephant Army in the Valley.
        * Floor  9. Little Dragon Counter Attack.
        * Floor 10. Cursed Mask.
        * Floor 15. Moon Baron.
      # Holy Gundron will also drop Holy Stone.
        * This floor.
      # You can only carry 20 Holy Stone.
      # But you can also only carry a maximum of 10 Lightspeed.

 FINAL BOMB
        Ideas = Candle + Cinders + Oven
    Materials = 7x Flame Crystal + 10x Bomb + 3x Power Crystal


> Strategy:
  + Items:
    - Keep the Anti-Stop Amulet in first slot.
    - Put Improved Bombs in a second slot.
    - Put Lightspeed Bombs or Final Bombs in the third slot.
    - Make sure the Improved Bomb slot is highlighted.
  + Use a Final Bomb on Stick Joe to reach it if its floating high.
    - Switch the highlight to the Lightspeed slot when you meet up with one.


> OTHER IMPORTANT POINTS:

  + Be prepared to make more Improved Bombs on the floor as you'll probably waste
    some.

  + EVEN IF MAX GETS INCAPACITATED, YOU CAN STILL MAKE BOMBS IF YOU HAVE THE
    INGREDIENTS.
    - Monica can finish the floor.

 FINAL ADVICE~~MG FLOOR 4
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> You may need to raise attribute values of Monica's armband(s) before trying to
  fill the Wipe-Out goal.
  + The problem (usually) is that the weapon takes too long to defeat an enemy.
    - This allows the monster to hit Monica too often.
    - It also allows other monsters in the area to gang up on her.

  + RECOMMENDED: Go back to the Veniccio Dungeon to raise attributes of at least
    one armband:
    - The armband needs to be AT LEAST at Level +10 (and after becoming ready to
      upgrade to the first weapon that requires monster defeats).

NOTE:

    - Keep backing up, but you MUST keep Bomber Head in view all the time.
      # Stay within reach.
    - After a while, it will pull its mouth out of shape or it will rise into the

  + Max should use the Power-Up attack (press and hold [X]) on the Magmanoff (but
    not on other monsters).
  + DEFINITELY DON'T use Power-Up on the Mimic or Fire Gundron.

  + Use a Lightspeed Bomb if you have them but you'll need Holy Stone to make 
them.
    - A Final Bomb should take it out, and if there are other monsters nearby, it
      may take them out too.
    - If you have to use Improved Bomb, get close to lure them down to you.
    - BUT put Non-Stop Amulets in an Active Item Slot.
    - When you have to use two (or more) Improved Bombs, THROW THE SECOND BEFORE
      THE CRITTER RECOVERS FROM THE FIRST.
  + Make sure you have a lot of Healing items.

> The King Mimic will probably need three Improved Bombs or a Final Bomb.
  + Make sure you make more (you'll also need to make regular Bombs too.

  + You may do it either BEFORE or AFTER the geysers are gotten rid of.

  + 'Cinders' is necessary for the Invention of 'Final Bomb'.
    - If you can't make Final Bombs when on the floors with 'Wipe-Out with
      Items' goals:
      # Filling the requirement will be a lot more difficult.

  + Review of the process:
    - Make and place a straw 'Shed' (from Sindain Georama) anywhere on the georama
       field.
    - Go to Heim Rada Stop and come back.
      # The shed is burned into a heap of ash.
      # Photo of the ash is 'Cinders'.

**   BUILDING THE GEORAMA  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*


> Prepare the ground:
  + Make:
    - 15x Hardened Mud Piles, one for each geyser.
  + First place a single mud pile on the ground and away from any geyser.
    - Go down and take a photo (title: Mud).
  + Next use clean-up to pick up the mud pile (it will be returned to the 'Place'
    list).
    - Now place a Hardened Mud Pile on each steam vent in the Georama field.
    - There are exactly 15.
    - The geysers will disappear and the ground will be smooth.


> Decide how you want to build the georama.
  You will, before the georama is finalized, place:
  + Four brick houses.
    - One will be on a three-block high platform.
    - Another will be surrounded by a fence with a gate.
  + One Windmill.
  + One Generator.
  + The Work Arm.
  + The Great Crane.
  + A number of items such as Pots and Chimney.

NOTE: There are many ways to build the Heim Rada Village, but the following works.

      + I built and placed the houses one at a time because it seemed to build the
        needed culture points faster:

      + I finished the Georama as far as possible at this point in the game (80%)
        before going to the future:
        - It saved time over going to the Workshop in the future every time I got
          the 'Change in the Future' message.
        - I have done it both ways and it made no difference in the Mini-Chests
          that became available.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 First House:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

> The platform and first house.
  + Make 18x Blocks:
    - Place the first six in a rectangle of 2 x 3 blocks not too close to the edge
      of the field.
    - Then stack the rest onto the rectangular base so the blocks are three levels
      high.

  + Make one Brick House and one Brick Chimney:
    - Place it on the stack of blocks.
    - Just wiggle it until it goes blue (it DOES fit).
    - Add the Brick Chimney to the roof.
  
  + Make:
    - 3x Blocks AND 3x Stair Blocks (so Max/Monica can climb up to the house 
door).
    - Place two blocks two high in front of the steps from the front door and
      against the block in the three-level stack.
      # If the first of these blocks stays red move it to the other end of the
        house, but you'll have to turn the house around.
      # Place one Stair block on these two.
    - Place one more block in front of that set.
      # Place a second Stair Block on that one.
      # Place the third Stair Block in front of them (they don't have to be
        perfectly aligned) to make a long stair/ramp.


> Windmill and second house:
  + Make the Windmill and place it anywhere convenient.
  + Make the Brick House and place it near the Windmill.

> Third House.
  + Make a third Brick House and place it anywhere convenient.

> Fourth House.
  + Make and place a Brick House so there is room around it for the fence (Gerald
    won't like the house unless it is fenced in).
  + Make 29x Iron Fence and place them around the house (they click into place).
    - I put 25 around the house leaving a single gap in front of the stairs to
      the house.
      # Two at the front, starting level with the edge of the stairs.
      # 7 along the side of the house.
      # Six along the back.
      # 7 along the other side of the house.
      # Three along the front, leaving a gap in front of the stairs.
    - Then I placed the other four to make an 'avenue' to the gap.
      # If the fence parts want to click to the wrong place, turn them around 180
        degrees.
  + Make and place an Iron Gate in the opening of the avenue.


NOTE: Ignore any 'Change in the future' messages for the time being.

> Placing people in the Houses.
  + Put Cedric in the house that's 3-stories high.
    - Go inside and talk to him.
  + Place Erik in the house beside the Windmill.
    - Talk to him if you want to.
  + Place Gerald in the house with the fence.
    - Talk to him too.
  + Place Borneo in the last house.
    - Talk to him.


> Culture additions:
  + Make and place 10 pots as follows:
    - One on each side of the door to Erik's house.
    - One on each side of the door to Borneo's house.
    - One on each side of the bottom of the stairs to Cedric's house.
    - One on each side of the gate to Gerald's house.
    - And one on each side of the entry to the windmill.
  + Make 10 more pots and place them in various places INSIDE the fence.


> Power Equipment:
  + Make and place:
    - The Great Crane on the roof of Erik's house (the one near the Windmill).
    - The Power Arm on the roof of Borneo's House.
    - Place the Power Generator anywhere it is convenient.


> Bring Culture up to at least 100:
  + Make the following one at a time, then check 'Culture'
    - Stop as soon as you have passed 100.
      # Add a Brick Chimney to Erik's, Borneo's and Gerald's Houses.
  + If it is still less than 100:
    - Place Iron Lamp 2 at the back of Gerald's house.
    - If necessary, you can add Iron Lamp 2 to Erik's and/or Borneo's houses.

NOTE: If you get low on Georama Materials, go to Conda (last car of train)
      and buy more.

**  THE BASIS OF GUNDORADA WORKSHOP  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Now it's time to go to the future:
  VIDEO:
  + Max and Monica move to the inner fence from the Time Gate.
    - Max:    So this is the great workshop...
    - Monica: It's the Gundorada Workshop. The name is taken from Mt. Gundor and
              from the village Heim Rada.
              + Paznos, the mobile stronghold of our rebel army, was once built
                here.
    - Max:    Wow, that's something!.
    - Monica says let's go to the second floor and Max agrees.
  + Video ends with Max standing on the Time Gate.
    - You are on the First Floor.

> Before going to the second Floor, search for Mini-Chests.

  NOTE: 'Setback' refers to an indented area into one of the buildings and
        sometimes bordered by a low fence.

  + Mini-Chest Locations:
    - At the Time Gate, face the center of the area (a deep pit).
      # Go right toward the first of the buildings (the high fence should be on
        your right).
        * About three-fourths of the distance to the first building and beside the
          outer fence is a mini-chest with a 'Fruit of Eden'.
      # Continue to the first building.
        * In the first setback into the building and in the far corner near the
          fence, there is a chest with 'Potato Pie'.
      # Keep walking in the same direction.
        * Just before the next setback is another chest (second 'Fruit of Eden').
      # This setback (deeper than the first) has three large yellow arrowheads
        pointing in to the first elevator.
        * Don't go up yet.
      # Continue past the elevator to the next setback.
        * Just before the corner to the setback is another chest with 'Witch
          Parfait'.
        * Just beyond the corner is East Jump Gate, a circular green and brown
          structure; its surface is criss-crossed with blue-white lines.

  + Beyond that is a ramp leading up to the Item Shop, 'G*Tools' with flame-pots
    along the edge of the walkway.
    - Photos in G*TOOLS:
      # Inside on either side of the counter are pillars with pink lights
        circling up around the pillar.
        * Photo title: 'Decorative Lights'.
      # On the floor is a 'Welcome" rug:
        * Photo title: 'Patterned Rug'
      # Take a photo of the large yellow bottle (patterned in red) on the floor
        by one of the show windows.
        * Photo title: 'Sulphur-Colored Juice'.
    - Ideas for Max:
      # Check the show windows for Max's ideas:
          ~ Horn   + Work Arm    + Electric Sesame ... Steve's Drill Arm II
          ~ Pot    + Energy Pipe + Generator ......... Steve's Energy Pack (Urn)

      inner fence.
    - The next setback has the other elevator.
      # Talk to the man standing in the corner.
    - At the next setback is a ramp up to the second level where the 'G* Weapons'
      shop is located.
      # Cases of weapons are displayed (if you don't have the 'Show Window' photo,
        take a picture of one of these).

    - Return to the First Floor by the further ramp from the shop:
      # You'll meet a man walking.
        * Talk to him.
      # Just before you pass the West Jump gate you'll find a Mini-Chest with a
        second 'Potato Pie'.
      # Continue until you come to the Jump Gate.
        * Close beside the gate is another chest with a third 'Potato Pie'.
      # Keep on in the same direction and just around the furthest corner of the
        last building:
        * A mini-Chest with a second 'Witch Parfait'.
    - Use the West Jump Gate to go to the East Jump gate.
      # Then go to the nearby elevator.
        ~ Take a photo of the Elevator.
        ~ Then go to the Second Floor.


> The second floor.
  VIDEO:
  You see a view of someone who has the same build as Borneo:
  + He says:  Hm! Who are your?
    - Monica: You must be Garek, the plant manager. I'm Monica.
    - Max:    I'm Maximillian, nice to meet you.
    - Monica: The Origin Point of this Workshop was destroyed. We're in the middle
              of trying to bring it back.
    - Garek:  Ah, so that's what happened is it? Everything changed so suddenly,
              I had no idea what was going on.
              + So you think you'll be able to restore the workshop?
    - Monica: Well, there's a problem. They are trying to put a stop to our
              building by raining embers down on Heim Rada.
    - Garek:  Raining embers... That's probably the Fire Squall.

  + The Fire Squall Device.
    - Monica: The Fire Squall?
    - Garek:  Yes. In the beginning they tried to destroy the Workshop directly
              using that device.
    - Monica: The workshop itself?!
    - Garek:  The Fire Squall is a terrifying device that takes energy from the
              volcano and turns it into a boiling hot rain...
              + They tried to use it to destroy the Workshop.
  + The Fire Squall was destroyed here in the future.
    - Monica guesses they have set it up in the past to destroy the Origin Point
      to prevent the Workshop from ever existing. there.
    - Garek:  Yeah, I guess that's what happened.
    - Max:    So we have to take out the Fire Squall in the past as well, right?
    - Garek:  That's right! I think the device is near the crater at the top of 
the
              volcano.
  + Garek gives them the Time Bomb.

> VIDEO ends with Max standing near Garek.
  + There is a ramp to the 'G*Parts' store.

> Mini-Chests on the Second Floor:
  + Facing the second Elevator, go to the left.
    - Past the second setback, there is a chest with 'Potato Pie'.
  + From the same elevator:
    - In the opposite direction, in the left end of setback behind Garek is a 
chest
      with another 'Fruit of Eden'.
    - There's another 'Fruit of Eden' at the other end of the same setback.
    - Along the short fence near the left end of the walkway is a fifth 'Fruit
      of Eden'.


> Go to the third floor.
  + In between the two elevators, there is a setback with a long fence.
    - About half-way along but in the center of the walkway is the sixth 'Fruit
      of Eden'.
  + You should have found:
    - 3x Potato Pie ...... Raises Max's shield to 52.
    - 2x Witch Parfait ... Raises Monica's shield to 44 (maybe 48).
    - 6x Fruit of Eden ... 3x for Max, 3x for Monica, HP raised to 136.
  + Focus the camera up on the equipment arm with a point on the end.
    - Press [R Analog Stick] forward to zoom in on the point itself.
    - Take the photo.


> Return to the First floor.
  + Go to the nearest Jump Gate and take a photo of it.
    - Photo title: 'Transmission Device'.
  + Use this Jump Gate to take you 'In Front of Time Gate'.
    - Return to the present.

> HP gauges are NOT filled.
  + Use a healing item on both Max and Monica.

**  BATTLE STRATEGY  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Max is standing behind the boulder.
  + Choose the Ridepod.
  + When you go to the Main Menu, the battle stops.
  + Make sure Steve is equipped with the Nova Cannon ~~ the only weapon that
    reaches that far.


> Strategy:
  + Keep firing.
    - Move to one side of the arena as far as you can while firing.
    - Then move back as far as you can in the opposite direction still firing.
    - Repeat until the Battleship is defeated.
  + Moving from side to side as you fire will keep damage down while still hitting
    the Battleship.
  + You should be able to finish this fight without having to restore the gun
    with Repair Powder.
    - And without having to refuel the Ridepod. 


> When the Battleship is damaged enough:
  VIDEO.
  + The Battleship is losing height.
    - Monica runs closer to it.
  + Closeup of Gaspard: Damn you, you little Brats!
    - The Battleship shudders.
    - Monica runs along a ship spar and leaps onto the deck.
    - She begins to gather magic...
      Monica: You won't slither away from me this time.
    - She throws fire magic then hits out at Gaspard with her sword.
    - The ship shudders again and Monica is startled.
  + Gaspard grabs her and she stops ~~ He must have caused a Stop Condition.
    Gaspard: There's more where that came from...
  + But before he can do anything more to Monica, he realizes the ship is falling.


> VIDEO continues.
  + You see Max watching and realizing they're falling.
    - The ship begins to slide down the inside crater wall and down into the
      crater.
    - Max runs to the edge of the crater as the ship begins to slide down more
      steeply and much faster.
    - Max yells: Monicaaaaaaaa!
  + Video ends with Max at the top of the crater wall.

> Circle the crater (with your back to the remains of the Fire Squall.
  + Pass the way you entered this area and keep going around until you see an 
arch.
  + Go down through the arch.
  + Enter the cave to "go to the next floor".

> BEFORE GOING TO THE NEXT FLOOR:
  + Return to Heim Rada, to receive the message that there has been a change in 
the
    future.
  + SAVE then stop off at Cedric's to have him repair the Ridepod.

    - He looks up and asks: What's that?
    - There is some kind of glowing shape.
    - Max: I'll check it out.
  + He runs past the transmission devise then the Video ends.
    - Max is standing on the Time Gate.
    - Without Monica, how's he going to return to the present!!!

> If you look up, you see the top floor, central building has a glowing blue dome
  on it and something yellow lies across the front of the dome.

> Take the Jump Gate to the NORTH transmission device.
  + The take the elevator to the third floor.
  + You are directly under the dome and to the left as you look at the elevator is
    a ramp.
  + From the top of the ramp you can look down in to the pit which is steaming
    gently.
  + Above the door is a huge glowing yellow clock.
  + There's a man near the door.
    - Talk to him, then go in through the door of the Operations Room.

> VIDEO:
  + You have a slow-motion scan down from heavy-duty lights to a man standing on
    the floor.
  + Max walks down to the man who asks: Who are you?
  + Max (politely):    I'm Maximillian. Nice to meet you.
  + Man (quietly):     Maximilliam? Could you possible be Elena's...
  + Max (surprised):   You know my mother?

  + The man introduces himself:
    - I'm Galen Agaris.
    - I've been leading the rebels against Griffon. But it looks as if my own
      origin point has been erased somehow.
    - By the way, how's Monica?
  + Max:   She was aboard Gaspard's Battleship and fell into the Mount Gundor
           Volcano.
           - I'm heading out to save her!
  + Galen: Is that right? Then take this.

> Max is given the Fire Horn by Galen who tells him:
  + The bottom of Mt. Gundor is a dangerous place with a flowing river of lava.
    - The going is very rough.
    - Use that when flames block your path. The same flames will become your
      servants.
    - You should be able to make your way across the lava. That's the legendary
      instrument: Fire Horn.
    - It's one of my family's greatest treasures. It will come in handy.
  + Max thanks Galen, telling him he'll do his best.

> Galen walks away from Max, saying:
  + Gaspard killed my friend Raybrandt. Raybrandt was a noble king and the
    mightiest of knights.
  + But Gaspard defeated him. You mustn't underestimate him.
  + Max repeats: 'King Raybrandt... Monica's father."

> Max vows to make Gaspard pay.
  + Galen: I know you can do it. The Atlamillia chose you... Good luck!

    - Max: Just at that moment, my Atlamillia shone blue...
           # The blue light that reached to the past. Was Monica's Atlamillia
             lending mine its power?
  + The blue light activates the gate and Max is back in Heim Rada.

  + There are red-hot lava flows along the walls of the chambers.
  + On this side of Mount Gundor, the Gate Key is 'Rope'.
    - A coil of rope for climbing down a hole in the floor.
  + If there is a locked area, a treasure Chest will give you the 'Vase'.
    - Stand near the thickest flow of lava to use it.
  
> Healing Fountains:
  + Look for a glowing blue shape on the wall that looks something like an amoeba
    (round to oval shape with zig-zag lines spreading from it).

> Use the Barrel Cannon IV or the Nova Cannon (whichever you prefer); they are
  about equal.

> Spheda:
  + A little more difficult (somewhat similar to Underground Channel, except it is
    lava along the walls, not water.
    - The edges of the lava channels are much more winding.

    - Use the Power-Up hit for the Lava Bat.
    - Be prepared to do it several times.
    - Carry an Antidote Amulet in a Active Item Slot.
      # It has poison in its bite.

  + This means if Gaspard defeats you, you won't have to take them again.
    - First time through, I was defeated!
  + When you return to this floor:
    - Just go straight into battle.
    - If he does defeat you, you can just start the battle again.
    - Use the LEGEND hammer you made with a Name-Change Ticket from Mayor Need.
      - If you don't have it, see the 'Short-Cut to Building Weapons' earlier in
        this Walkthrough.

> Go to the end of the road.
  VIDEO.
  + Max walks across the open area past the road.
    - He sees Gaspard crouching over Monica.
  + Gaspard:  Right on schedule, I see.
  + Max:      Monica!
  + Gaspard:  (slashing with his sword) Worry about your own hide, boy.
              Your little journey is about to come to a screeching halt.

> Gaspard then leaps into the air and comes down facing Max.
  + Gaspard:  You're still wet behind the ears. I'll show you what true power is!!

> VIDEO ends with closeup of Gaspard.

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

NOTE: There are two ways you can defeat Gaspard.

> If you REALLY want to slash and hack at him (the Dark Assassin) here is the
  best method BUT...
  + Firing from a distance doesn't work very well.
    - Monica is incapacitated so Max must fight alone.
    - You cannot Lock-On so it is no use using Bombs.
    - Use your best Hammer/Wrench (LEGEND if you have it).
      # If necessary go to other floors and raise the weapon first.
      # LEGEND's Smash Attribute can be raised to 198 in just a SHORT TIME (you
        need 16 Synthesis Points or 3 Levels Up).

  + One of Gaspard's attacks is similar to the Bone Lord's (magic flashes across
    the ground).
    - BUT it is MUCH MORE DANGEROUS.
    - Goes in two directions (V-shaped).
  + Another attack is circling flames with Gaspard as the center of the circle.
    - Watch Max's HP and get in close to use his Hammer.
    - The worst is that he leaps over Max's head and comes in from behind.

 + WATCH MAX'S HP AND HEAL SOONER THAN TOO LATE!!!

 + NOTE: If Gaspard defeats Max: he'll say: You should have surrendered.
          You can't beat me.
         - Then the game is over.


> OR YOU CAN USE THE RIDEPOD:
  + Much faster and less dangerous, though dangerous enough.
    - You can't simply run away (nothing happens if you do).
    - Keep Locking On and firing at Gaspard, but move away at the same time.
      # Turn fast if Gaspard leaps.
    - Each time you hit him, he pauses for a moment.
  + Repeat until he is defeated.
    - The screen will go black for a moment or two.

> When defeated, Gaspard kneels.
  + Gaspard:  Hah... Once again... Why don't you give up boy?
  + Max:      I won't forgive what you've done.
  + Gaspard:  You say you won't forgive what I've done... But Why?
  + Max:      You're chasing after my mother. You'll hurt her if I don't stop you.
  + Gaspard:  (sneering) Your mother... You fight to protect your...mother...
              Hah! How juvenile. But you know. I used to be that way too.
  + Max:      Huh...?

> Monica wakes up as:
  + Gaspard:  I had a mother too, just like everyone else.

> Monica runs to attack Gaspard but he repulses her and she is flipped away and
  falls.
  + Max:      Monica!
  + Gaspard:  (standing between Max and Monica, says to Monica) So you hate me 
too,
              eh. Well that's only natural since I am your father's sworn enemy.
  + Gaspard:  hehehe... hahaha... U hah hah hah hah haha (he laughs madly).
              He tells them:
              - We're the same... You and I... Exactly the same...
  + Monica:   What are you talking about? We're nothing like you!
  + Gaspard:  (Shouting) I just wanted to protect my mother too...
              Just like you two...

**  GASPARD'S STORY  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Choose whether to view the VIDEO or review the transcript below:

> We see Gaspard's memory:
  + Gaspard:  I was a loathsome child, born to a changeling father and a human
              mother.
              - The humans called me demon-child.
              - Despite that, my parents and child were able to live happily in
                that small village.
              - But when I was still a small boy, my father fell ill.
              - My mother tried desperately to nurse him, but it was all for
                nothing.
  + Scene changes to Gaspard and his mother looking at a gravestone.
              - My father fell into a never-ending sleep...

  + Scene shows Gaspard and his mother being driven out of the village.)
              - (speaks savagely) After my father died, the other villagers chased
                us out of town, calling us freaks and monsters.
              - They had always feared my father and had just pretended to be nice
                to us. My mother tried her best to protect me from it all.
              - After that, we traveled from village to village. It was a tough
                life, those days were.
              - Mother had to resort to stealing sometimes. In order to make sure
                I had enough food to eat.
  + View returns to Gaspard in the here and now.
              - The exhaustion of always being on the road... The censure from the
                humans...
              - The stress of it all made mother terribly ill...

> View of the inside of a hut with his mother in bed and Gaspard kneeling by the
  bed.
  + Mother:   Gaspard... It's time to say goodbye...
  + Gaspard:  Mother...what do you mean? I'm not going anywhere. Can't we stay
              together?
  + Mother:   Listen carefully, Gaspard... No matter what... You mustn't think ill
              of people...
              - No good ever came out of hatred... You'll be on your own from now
                on...
              - Don't let the loneliness get to you. You must continue this
                journey.
              - You must find something you want to protect, even if it takes your
                whole life...
              - Search for that... You must live your life searching for that...
              - Until you find it...
              - (whispering) Until then, you must never stop this journey...
  + Gaspard:  What? What am I supposed to find?!
              - (desperately) Mother... Can't you see? I don't understand!
  + Mother:   I know... If anyone can find it... You can...
              - Gaspard... (her eyes close)
  + Gaspard:  Mother! MOTHER!!
              - Open your eyes...Mother...Mother!

> Back to the present:
  + Gaspard:  When did my journey ever end? I haven't done anything my mother
              asked.
              - It's just hatred that drives me now...
              - I just... didn't have anything worth protecting.
  + Monica:   (gently) Gaspard...
  + Gaspard:  But you... you have something. Something to protect...
              - To protect... even if it costs your life...
              - You must continue your journey, You mustn't... give up now...
              - Could... you show me... where your journey will take you?
              - I'd like to see it too... The end of my own... journey...
              - Farewell...

> Gaspard turns away and creates a time gate. But when he tries to go through it,
  he clutches his head.
  + Gaspard:  Guwaa!! Uguuwaaaaaaa!!

> A voice of an 8 year old (by the sound of it) is heard:
  + Voice:    I will not forgive this... This betrayal...
  + Monica:   What the...?
  + Voice:    You...you're one of mine.
              - (nastily) If you don't kill them... You'll live to regret it...

> Still clutching his head, Gaspard continues to groan.
  + Monica:   That voice... Could it be...Griffon's?
  + Max:      What's happening to him?!

> Griffon changes into a huge dragon-like creature.
  + Monica:   We'll have to fight him. (sadly) Gaspard...


     NO ALTERNATIVE...

**  BATTLE STRATEGY  **
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

> Switch to the Ridepod (the Nova Cannon is best).

  + Lock-on and fire at Gaspard as quickly as possible, moving around to the 
right.

  + When Gaspard leaps into the air:
    - He's about to send a huge ball of fire at you.
    - Move rapidly away from him but continue to fire the Nova Cannons at him.
    - It shouldn't take long to defeat him.


> When defeated, the demon form disappears in a flash of light as Monica and Max
  shield their eyes.
  + When the light clears, Gaspard is lying on the ground in his natural form.
    - They run toward him and kneel beside him.
  + Monica:  (tearfully) Gaspard...
  + Gaspard: How sad...
             - (his body jerks) Unh... guess I won't be able... see your journey
               to its end...
             - When I see my mother again I'll tell her...
             - That at the end... I finally met you two...


> Gaspard turns his head and looks at Monica, then his head falls to the side
  and he closes his eyes.
  + Monica:  (sadly) Gaspard...


> Sparkling lights stream up from his body and the scene dissolves into light.
  + Suddenly the inside of the hut appears.
    - Gaspard, a child again, runs in through the door.
    - His mother is sitting beside the table.
  + Child Gaspard:  Hello, Mother! I'm home! (He sits at the table.)
                    Sorry, Mother... I... I couldn't find what you asked me to...
                    But guess what... I found these really weird guys...

> His voice and the picture fades. You hear his mother's voice say:
  + Voice: Hmm...you found it... Gaspard... You managed to find it...
           - Welcome home... Gaspard...


> Back to Monica and Max.
  Monica:  (really mad) Damn, damn, DAMN that Griffon.
  Max:     Monica...

> Then Max is standing in front of the red Time Gate.
  + There's a message about a change in the future.

  + Max and Monica walk toward Galen in the Operations Room of the Gundorada
    Workshop.
  + Galen:   Well. Finally Gundorada Workshop is completely restored.
             All thanks to you.
  + Monica:  We were just doing our part.
  + Galen:   Monica...
  + Monica:  Yes...
  + Galen:   I have something I must give you.
  + Monica:  Really? What is it? Huh?
  + Galen:   (pulling out a blue sword) Here.
  + Monica:  What's this?
  + Galen:   That's the sword your father, Raybrandt... left to me.
             - He asked me to give it to you if anything should happen.
  + Monica:  (amazed) It's my father's sword...?
  + Galen:   That sword is imbued with great power. A normal person could never
             make use of it.
             - But with you as you are now, I'm sure you could draw out its great
               strength.
             - Now is the time for you to take that sword and fight alongside your
               father, Monica.
  + Monica:  Father!

> She has the 'Holy Daedalus Blade'.

> If you talk to Galen again, he wonders what Griffon is up to, messing with 
people
  from two eras.

> Walk down the ramp and step on the third floor Transmission Device (its the 
final
  piece of the Workshop).
  + Press [X] to go to Paznos Bridge.
  + Talk to Galen.
    - He tells you the counterattack should be starting soon.
    - He asks: Are you prepared?

> VIDEO: You see the bridge (this VIDEO is worth watching).
  + All hands on deck!! Preparing Paznos launch.
  + There are warning signals and the clamps holding Paznos retract.
  + Galen:  Paznos launch.

> You see the lift off, then a view through the forward screens.
  + Thousands of Golems are pounding toward you but they are on a level
    beneath Paznos.
  + Monica, Max and Galen gaze at the screen.
  + Monica:  What are those things?
  + Galen:   Those are the Golems in Griffon's control.
  + Max:     They're huge!
  + Galen:   Yes. Griffon destroyed a mountain and created a whole army of Golems.
             - They're a magical force to be reckoned with...
  + Monica:  What should we do?
  + Galen:   Don't worry. We'll make them taste the power of Paznos.

> Galen yells:
  + Ready the weapons!!
  + You see the outside of the ship.
    - Another view of the herds of Golem.
  + Monica:  Here they come!
  + One of the men say: Lord Agaris?
  + Galen:   Not yet. We have to lure them closer.

> Outside the ship again, you see the Golems climbing up to the floating Paznos.
  + Galen:   Now! FIRE!!!

> You see Paznos with blue flames coming out of its guns.
  + The herds of Golem are being pounded.

> One of the Men run up to Galen.
  + Man:     Lord Agaris! Elena has arrived.
  + Galen:   (walking up to a group of people including Elena) I hope you weren't
             hurt.
  + Elena:   No. It was tough going but the bombardment from Paznos saved us.

> Elena looks at Max who looks at her.
  + Max runs to his mother and hugs her.
  + She tells him: He's gotten so big and she is so happy to see him again.
    - "Me too," says Max.

> VIDEO continues: Max and his mother are on the top of Paznos looking at the 
moon.
  + She asks how is his father.
  + He tells her, he's fine and is sure he'd like to see her too.
  + When he asks her if she could come back, she says: Listen Max. This is the
    place where I have to be.
    - I'm from this time, not yours.
  + Max:    (indignant) But... even so, that's... That's... That's just selfish!
            - That's just.. so...
  + Elena:  Max...
  + Max:    (almost crying) If that's the case...I mean, if that's how things are
            then you shouldn't have come to my time in the first place!

> Max runs away and Elena says sadly: Max, I'm sorry... No one can exist in two
  separate times...


> Back on Paznos Bridge (still VIDEO):
  + Galen:   So you're both going?
  + Monica:  Yes. We got word from Luna Lab that Ixion was finished.
             - We're going to ride it to the distant past.
             - And we're going to find Griffon and do what needs to be done!

> Galen asks Max if he doesn't want to talk to Elena (NO).
  Galen tells them: We're counting on you to bring back the light to our world.

> VIDEO ends with Max at the train in Heim Rada Stop.

  + There is one picture (you can get it anytime) inside Paznos.
    - Go onto the Bridge (third floor).
    - Focus on a flower-like device in the top center of the window above the
      controls on the Bridge.
      Title: Paznos Pattern.
    - The Transmission Device on Paznos Bridge can take you to the Time Gate.
    - Return to Heim Rada Stop.

  + Save and move to Veniccio.

> Go into the Central lab of Lunar Lab.
  + You see the train Ixion - All colors.

> Dr. Jaming (grandson) tells Max and Monica that they did have a little bit of
  trouble but Dr Nobb says they are rather proud of the end results.
  + Max:     (jumping up and down) This is so cool!
  + Monica:  Um... isn't it a little uh... gaudy?
  + Dr. Nobb: Well, now that you mention it... I guess you could say that.

> Professor Osmond comes up.
  + Osmond:  Hey, are you picking holes in my design? You just don't get it, do
             you?
  + Jaming:  He's in charge of design.
  + Osmond:  Listen. This train can travel through space and time. I just figured
             it should have a look that sets it apart, and matches its abilities,
             y'know.
  + Dr. Nobb: (sighs).
  + Max:     I think it looks cool.
  + Osmond:  Exactly. At least you understand.
  + Monica:  ... If it gets us ten thousand years in the past, that's all that
             matters.
  + Dr. Nobb: That won't be a problem.
  + Max:     Well then, let's go.
  + Jaming:  Be careful out there. He's a formidable enemy, that Griffon.

> When Max says it could be tough to operate the thing, Dr Nobb, says not to worry
  as Osmond will handle Ixion's controls.

> Max and Monica are inside the train amid all the bright colors.
  + Max is impressed but Monica thinks the inside is just as bad as the outside!
  + They arrive at the front of the train and sit down in seats behind Professor
    Osmond's.
  + Osmond:  All systems go.
  + Monica:  Well, I know there isn't a whole lot you can do about it now, but I
    don't think much of the design.
  + Osmond:  (a little annoyed) Hmm!
  + Monica:  (laughing) ...Ha Ha Ha! Just kidding! How about we get going?
  + Max:     (acting as if he's driving the train) Right. Let's go!
  + Osmond:  (raising his right hand) Get ready. To ten thousand years in the 
past!
             (He brings his hand down onto the controls).

> You see an outside view of the Lab (its colors are similar to those of the
  train ~~ You can see where Professor Osmond got his color scheme from!).
  + Wide doors open on the ocean side of the lab...
    - A piece of track appears on the water...
    - Another appears and joins with the first, but it slants upwards...
    - Then another extends the second...
  + There is a closeup of Ixion coming out onto the track.
    - It quickly gathers speed, speeds up the ramp and into the air...
    - A blue Time Gate appears in the sky and Ixion enters it...
    - Inside the engine, the seats are trembling...
    - All three of them groan loudly...
    - The whole scene shimmers then...
    - The screen is filled with waves of reds and blues, some mixing to purple,
      and forming a tunnel.
    - Ixion flashes through...
