From a time beyond memory, a spirit of harmony pulses through the land. The surrounding seas are calm and inviting and the flame of freedom burns strong among the people. This world is watched over by spirit tamers, magical guardians who hold a pact with the spirits of nature. Their powerful magic secrets are inscribed in Eletale's book. Only those worthy of becoming spirit tamers themselves are allowed to read from this sacred volume. But now an evil being has stolen the book of the spirit tamers and is using it to cast deadly spells over the land. Strange beasts lurk in the countryside. Rumors of terrible happenings run through the towns. Citizens are edgy and fearful for the first time in a thousand years. Peace is shattered. Celtland is sinking into a dark age of chaos and misery. You are Brian, an apprentice spirit tamer. Your father, lord Bartholomy, himself a spirit tamer, vanishes while trying to recover the book. You vow to find him and the book, restoring Celtland to its glory. Begin your dangerous Quest through uncharted lands. Travel throughout the kingdoms of Kennishire, Highland, and Carmagh. Search for clues and the powers you'll need to fulfill your Quest. Learn harmony with the spirits of earth, wind, fire, and water. Declare war on the evil that grips your land. Battle supernatural beasts while solving mysterious puzzles. Rescue your father and return the book to worthy hands before all of Celtland descends in chaos. PAGE 6 Playing the game You begin your quest at the Melrode Monastery where you live and study. Treacherous souls are on the loose, and you need all the help you can muster to fight them. Throughout the quest, you learn what you should do next by speaking to friends, strangers, leaders, and countrymen. Your weapons are magical spells and a staff for hand to hand combat. Your powers are at their weakest now, so you must learn to increase your strength by drawing on the power of the spirits. Evil is growing and beasts will attack you. Your wits sharpen, and your powers become monumental as you learn the art of summoning the forces of nature. ~ gain vital elements through battle victories and searching. Collect enough elements and your spell casting abilities become formidable. ~ travel throughout the island on foot or move magically from place to place. ~ Sometimes, you must complete a task in order to gain valuable information or items.

Many have information that is vital to your quest. Others will give you useful items to add to your inventory. Some characters will just want to make small talk, but it's worth your time to talk to everyone at least once. Consider returning to people you have learned things from in the past to update your information. To converse with someone: 1. get close to the person. When a dialog balloon appears, that person is ready to talk. 2. Press the a button and the person will begin telling you what he/she/it knows. When a feather appears in a dialogue box, there's more to come. Continue pressing the A button until the conversation ends. Elements The spirits of earth, fire, wind, and water supply you with elements that give you the power to cast magical spells during battle. The more you collect, the stronger your casting abilities become. Elements can be hidden anywhere; be alert to find them. Special signs signal their presence. When you get close to a spirit, a "?" appears over your head. Press the A button and the element selection menu appears. Press the C buttons to choose which type of element you will acquire. The numbers indicate how many of each element type you already have. Sometimes you gain elements when you are victorious in battle. You may be awarded multiple elements at one time. In this case, continue selecting elements until the element selection menu closes. Your element display at the lower left corner of the screen shows the type and number of elements in your possession. You can collect a maximum of 50 elements per spirit. NOTE: see "magic spells" and "battle" to understand how the power of the elements is put to work. PAGE 8 Items inventory You can acquire useful items such as food, mystical trinkets, and powerful magic potions to carry on your quest. Some items can revive you, be used in battle, or instantly transport you to far-away places. Still other items will be vital to you later in special circumstances. You begin the quest without supplies. Search for useful items from the beginning of the journey. Many items are in chests that you can find anywhere in Celtland. To acquire items: - Progress through your quest.

In the country side: Many things in the country side are not clearly visible, so you need to be adventurous to find them. If you stay on the paths, you'll miss important things. Make off-road excursions and see what you can find. If you are lucky and resourceful, you may discover the power to transport to other realms of Cetland. Using your compass The compass shows you the direction of travel. It always appears in the upper right corner of the screen. The compass needle moves to show you in which direction you're traveling.
