THE STORY ------------ There are six towns in the Friel Empire which make up the stages of the game. Many kinds of plants and animals live here besides humans. The souls of all living creatures, however, are being held captive by a monster. Deathtoll will show his true form to you when the souls of all the living creatures have been freed and the towns reconstructed. 1. Grass Valley This is the village where the inventor, Dr. Leo, lived. Lisa, Dr. Leo's only daughter, and their friend the Village Chief lived there also. 2. Green Wood Legend has it that this town was developed by a dog named Turbo. He built this peaceful village to offer protection and serenity to all animals. 3. St. Elles A mermaid town far below the ocean. It is said this was once a beautiful temple protected by four ancient mermaid statues. 4. Home of the Mountain Spirit Deep inside this mountain lies a town of spirits. Although these spirits have an extremely short life span, they enjoy it to the fullest. 5. Dr. Leo's Laboratory This house lies directly in the middle of the desert. Dr. Leo was confined here by King Magridd and forced to develop a machine that could summon the King of Evil. 6. Magridd Castle This is the fortress of the tyrant King Magridd. It also served as the place of meeting between the King of Evil, Deathtoll, and King Magridd. Since then, the castle has been demolished and there are no signs of the King or any of his followers. OPENING STORY ------------- King Magridd, ruler of the Freil Empire, is a greedy man. His only desire is to possess all the money in the world. One day the King overheard a conversation regarding Dr. Leo, the town's so-called "genius" inventor. An idea suddenly came to him. "Maybe I can obtain all the world's wealth by striking a deal with the King of Evil." Dr. Leo was imprisoned by the King and ordered to construct a machine to summon Deathtoll. Even though it was painful, this was not a difficult task for Dr. Leo. When Deathtoll was summoned, the King told him he wanted more than anything to obtain the wealth of the world. Deathtoll made a proposition: "The life of one living being in exchange for one gold piece." The proposition was accepted, and from that day on all living beings began to disappear. They either became servants of Deathtoll or were banished to Monster Lairs. 2. CAST ------- The Hero (You) On a ray of light you descended to earth at the command of the Master to battle Deathtoll. With the long sword received from the Master you must defeat various types of monsters. You are also circled by the souls of others who will assist you. Lisa The only daughter of Dr. Leo. She is now alone because of the capture of her father. The many creatures she once cared for have mysteriously vanished. Dr. Leo The "genius" inventor of the Freil Empire and also Lisa's father. He was imprisoned by King Magridd and ordered to build a machine capable of summoning Deathtoll. King Magridd A man of greed who will use any means at his disposal to build his fortune. He summoned the King of Evil and offered him creatures in return for pieces of gold. The King disappeared a short time after all the creatures had been captured. Legend has it that the King himself was attacked by Deathtoll's henchmen. 3.

Most monsters you defeat will set a captive soul free. The souls freed in the action mode return to town and rebuild their homes. It is a good idea to return to town and talk with these souls for they will have information and items which may prove useful. ACTION STAGE First visit the town in each area. You will notice no sign of people, animals or plants anywhere. Move to the action stage and begin fighting monsters. You will notice as you defeat monsters, the Lair from which they originate will turn to a green tile. This means you have defeated all the monsters in that lair. Once the tile has turned green, step on it and see what happens. Remember, defeat the monsters. This will destroy the Monster Lair. Then step on the green tile. "I've been defeated!" If this happens, do not be alarmed. It is not uncommon for the Hero to be defeated. Should this happen, you will be returned to the Master's Shrine in that area. The number of GEMs will return to zero. However all the Monster Lairs you have cleared and the experience you have gained will remain. All Monster Lairs that were not cleared will be reset to the original number. Pressing the START Button displays the remaining number of Monster Lairs in the area. RESTORED TOWNS The freed creatures will give you information. Return to town after opening the seal of the Monster Lairs, especially in the action stages. Freedom is not only for humans but for plants and animals as well. You can talk to all living things so it is best to watch for any changes in the towns. THE MASTER'S SHRINES These shrines are the beginning points of each stage. The Hero can also refill his/her life meter here. Each shrine contains four blocks; three blue and one yellow. An explanation of how these blocks are used follows: Top (Yellow) : Use this block to save the current game or move to another area of the map. Right and left(Blue): These blocks will move you to certain areas in the action stage. Bottom (Blue): Use this block to return to the town in this area. The following will happen if the seal of the Monster Lairs is broken: 1) Souls become revived. The souls that were sealed in the Lairs become revived. The HP of the Hero will increase slightly when the souls return to town and reconstruct their houses. 2) Closed passages are opened. Passages and stairways that before were invisible now appear. Obstructions will disappear, allowing the Hero to continue in the actions stage. 3) Treasure chests appear. A treasure chest may appear. Inside you may find tools that are helpful for the adventure or items that may have been hidden. 4) Spirits may appear. These spirits may give you experience, items, or information what will help you in completing your mission. They may also offer to return you to the towns if you so desire. 5) Monster Lairs appear. Hidden Monster Lairs may appear allowing you to free the souls being held captive. AREA BOSSES Peace will return to a particular town if the Boss in that area is defeated. You can also gain valuable information enabling you to move to the next area. The area Boss is found at the end of the action stage. The creatures being held captive by the Bosses are central figures in each area. Each is holding a stone that emits a different color. You may advance to the next stage by obtaining this stone. 5. ACTIONS ---------- EQUIPMENT AND STATUS Remember to equip any of the items, weapons, magic or armor you obtain. Bring up the Equipment Screen by pressing SELECT or X Button. Return to the Main Screen by pressing Y Button. Select the armor to be changed. Select the desired equipment then press B or Y Button. The strength of the equipment will be shown in the lower window. Weapons You can increase your attack power by equipping a more powerful sword. The upward facing arrow at the bottom of the screen shows the strength of the weapon. There are also certain swords that contain special powers. The level shown is a recommended level. Players who have not reached this level may not swing this sword even if equipped with it. (Thrusting is possible.) Armor Defensive strength will increase by equipping armor. The number at the bottom of the status screen shows the strength of your defense power. There are also certain types of armor that will protect you from various traps found in the action stages. Magic Eight types of magic may be obtained throughout the course of the game. Make sure you select the magic that will be most effective for the stage and enemy. Select magic by using the same method as used in selecting other equipment. Items You must be equipped with an item in order for it to be effective. You should be careful since the item window will not open unless the items are specified in the lower right selection window. The equipment selected will be shown in each window inside the dotted squares. The list of equipment shown on the lower right will also change. Gaining experience increases various powers. Your strength will become greater as you gain experience in battle. Experience is obtained by defeating monsters. Your HP, physical strength, defense and attack power will be refilled and increase as you reach each new level. EXPERIENCE LEVEL Gained each time a monster is defeated \/ RAISE LEVEL All powers will be increased when a certain amount of experience is gained \/ \/ \/ HP STRENGTH DEFENSE Indicates physical Indicates attack Indicates defensive strength strength strength /\ /\ SWORD ARMOR EQUIPMENT Increases the power of the equipment only Remember to occasionally check your information screen to see how much experience you need to reach the next level. THE SOUL The ball circling the Hero represents the souls of his companions in the sky. The "Mole's Soul" for example has the power to detect traps. Their power is displayed by simply gaining these souls. You do not need to select them as you would equipment. THE SWORD --------- The most powerful weapon you can use is the one received from the Master. This sword, when stood on end, is taller than you. When combined with magic it will make a fierce and effective weapon. How to use The Sword When you press the B Button, the Hero will swing the sword down. This is the most effective way to attack an enemy. By doing this you will add the strength of the Hero together will the strength of The Sword. Thrusting The Sword The enemy directly in front of you can be damaged without swinging the sword. The strength of the attack will only be as strong as the sword, however, and thus the damage to the enemy will be minor. To thrust the sword, face the enemy and press the L or R Button. Retrieving GEMs If you wish to retrieve a GEM without moving or to retrieve one that is out of reach, face the GEM and press the L or R Button. Using this technique will allow you to retrieve those hard-to-get GEMs. The sword can be used to attack enemies that are not only in front of you but in all directions. Every enemy within reach of the sword can be damaged. Because of the tremendous size of the sword you can attack enemies before they can get within reach of the Hero. MAGIC ----- Your companion in the sky will help you use magic. Magic can be useful to attack the enemies you cannot reach with your sword. You may use up to eight types of magic found throughout the game. Refer to the explanation of each type of magic and use where that magic can be used most effectively. Magic is emitted from the circle when the Y Button is pressed. Magic is selected in the Equip Screen. Since magic is cast from the circle rotating around you make sure you use good timing and positioning to attack the enemy. Remember with some magic it is important to face the direction you wish to cast the magic. GEM GEMs will be consumed when you use magic. The number of times a certain magic can be used depends upon the amount of GEMs you have obtained. GEMs are the golden objects that remain after an enemy has been defeated. Depending on the enemy, the value of the GEMs may vary. To use each type of magic, a certain number of GEMs will be necessary. Try to collect as many GEMs as possible. If HP becomes zero, you will lose all GEMs in your possession. Try not to waste any GEMs. ITEMS ----- May only be used if equipped. If equipped, items will automatically display their effectiveness. You do not need to press a button to activate an item. Make sure you are careful when using an item since there are some that you will need in towns and some you will need in the action stages. 6.
