    Opening Story

    Generations ago, the world fell into deep Chaos.
    The Master had maintained the world in a state of peace and harmony.
    However, an evil one called Tanzra began to threaten its very existence.
    People spent their lives manifesting their love to their Master while
    fearing The Evil One. The Master and The Evil One were eternal enemies. In
    strength and power they were almost equals. Even though the world has
    fallen into Chaos, somehow the earth continued on its revolving course.
    Invasion and destruction...
    These were the only aims of The Evil One. To conquer the world was his only
    desire. However, The Evil One was unable to destroy the Master. He ordered
    his six Guardians, who had enormous strength, to defeat the Master and
    conquer his world. Even though the world was still in a state of peace, the
    balance of power began to gradually sway towards darkness. One day, The
    Evil One and his Guardians suddenly appeared at the outer gates of the Sky
    The Master, who understood the real purpose of their presence, fought with
    great courage and little regard for his own life.
    The battle waged on for many days.
    The Master was so badly injured that he

    fled to the safety of his Sky Palace. With the little energy he had left,
    he erected a barricade. To heal his serious wound, he fell into a long and
    deep sleep. While in a deep sleep, the presence of the Master's power
    vanished. With no one to inspire resistance, the forces of Evil invaded the
    world and did as they pleased. With little hope for any support from their
    Master, the people had little choice but to be transformed into monsters.
    The Evil One divided the world into six lands and turned over the control
    of each region to his Guardians.
    The world was completely ruined. Stone statues the people had made in honor
    of their Master became the only remaining eveidence of a strong and
    thriving society.
    Several hundred years after the world had fallen into The Evil One's power,
    the Master, who had long since retreated to the safety of the Sky Palace,
    began to stir. Even though time had completely healed the Master's wounds,
    his power disappeared when the last of his loyal subject succumbed to the
    forces of evil.
    He found his once ideal worldand loyal subject now overrun by evil. This
    caused the Master much grief and sorrow, but what could he do? He had no
    Inspired by the faintest of hope, the Master revolved battle The Evil One
    so that peace and order might once again prevail.

    With the final preparations, the Master took down the barrier protecting th
    Sky Palace and silently began his mission to destroy The Evil One's hold
    onhis earth.

    As you develop the land, your power will gradually be restored. With
    renewed power you can rid the earth of all monsters.

    'ActRaiser' takes place in a world invaded by forced of evil. As Master,
    you must defeat all monsters in each Action Mode in order to purify the
    land that is being dominated by evil. Each land has two separate Action
    Modes, 'ACT I' and each of the six districts has one Action Mode.
    Upon completing ACT I, of an Action Mode you move into the Simulation Mode.
    An orderly development of the land will raise your level and fighting
    In the beginning, you will only be permitted entrance to Filemore. To visit
    other lands will require that you increase your level. Your first mission
    will be to purge the land of Fillmore, cultivate it, and raise your level.
    Below is an example of how you will progress through the Action and
    Simulation Modes.

    Action Mode

    As the once-ruleing Master, your task in the Action Mode is to regain
    control of all the land. To accomplish this task you have chosen the statue
    of a mighty warrior to embody your spirit. ACT I must be completed before
    moving into the Simulation Mode. Each land has TWO ACTION MODES. Once you
    have sealed all the monsters'lairs in the Simulation Mode, you can advance
    to ACT II.

    Simulation Mode

    The Simulation Mode begins upon completion of ACT I of eachlands' Action
    Mode. Your taks here is to develop th land and increase the population.
    When the population increases to a certain number, the Master's experience
    will raise a level and his HP will increase. The higher the Master's
    experience and HP level, the more prepared he will be for the next Action
    Mode. People will cultivate the land in the direction you advise. Using the
    Masters' resurgence, lead and direct the people through the many incidents
    and events take place in the Simulation Mode.

    you defeat the pests that inhabit the land. Once you have selected which
    miracle to use, Move the Yellow Square to the area where you want the
    miracle to take place.


    A very useful Act of Nature that consumes little Sp. This miracle destorys
    bushes (the smaller trees), Palm trees, rocks, houses and fields.

    SP Consumption - 10
    Results - Destroys Bushes, Trees, Houses, Fields and Rocks

    population growth. The rain will also turn vast barren deserts into lush
    and productive grasslands.

    Results - Douse Fires, Turns deserts into inhabitable lands

    Results - Will blow any monsters with wings away.

    Results - Destroy's houses, fields etc

    Why develop the lands and increase the population?

    Developing each land in an organized fashion allows the maximum population
    potential and has a very important purpose. As the population of each land
    reaches a certain level, the Master's experience level will also increase.
    As the Master's level increases, his life meter for the Action Mode
    increases as well.

    When all the sand falls to the bottom...

    Once the sand in the upper half of the hourglass reaches the bottom, the
    'Town Under Construction': phase of the Simulation Mode will begin.
    Movement of the sand from the top to bottom is regulated by the passage of
    'Real Time'. The passage of time will be suspended while in the Action
    Mode, in the Sky Palace and during certain phases of the Simulation Mode.
    When 'Town Under Construction' appears on the screen, homes will be built,
    new portions of the town will be developed and the population will

    people and determine which Act of Nature, when use, would best solve that
    If problems are not successfully resolved, the development of the
    particular town may stop, which would prevent the population from

    - 29 -

    Monsters on the ground too

    The monsters in the Simulation Mode live to make the development of the
    land difficult. To identify how many monsters are in a particular land,
    press B-Button whilehoring over that lair. Use the arrows the Angel carries
    to destroy the monsters in Simulation Mode. Any contact with the monsters
    will decrease the Angel's HP. If his life gauge is completely red (empty),
    he will not be able to use the arrow. Time will restore the Angel's HP. The
    amount of SP the Angel gains is determined by the numer of monsters
    defeated. When the Angel's life gauge is empty, try using some of the
    Miracles to effectively rid the land of monsters.

    Seal The Monsters' Lairs!

    The monsters' lairs can be sealed by developing the land over the lairs.
    This, however, can only be attempted once the population of the land has
    reached a certain level. The people of Fillmore will offer you a clue as to
    what that level will be.

    Monsters found in the Simulation Mode.

    Napper Bat - Attacks homes and kidnaps people.

    Blue Dragon - Uses thunder to destroy homes and other things.

    Red Demon - Scorches and dries up productive fields.

    - 30 -

    Cultural Level

    Cutural level refers to the development stage of towns. As the level
    increases, the style and quality of homes improve, allowing the population
    to increase. The maximum Cultural Level each town can reach is Level 3.
    These homes are earthquake-proof.

    Advanced Developments

    For each land to reach its maximum development level, roads must be
    constructed in every possible direction. The more roads you develop the
    more homes and fields get developed.

    Develop Every Inch Of The Land

    Since there are no clues on where offerings are hidden, it is important
    that you spend valuable time developing every available piece of land so
    your people may find all the offerings each town has concealed.
    There are several ways that may help speed a town's progress from level 1
    to level 3 (NOTE: By useing the methods listed below, you will sacrifice
    the lives of many people.)

    * Use lightning or Earthquake to destroy the older homes.
    * Allow any fires to burn themselves out.
    * Allow the Blue Dragons to destroy the homes for you.

    Fillmore, the first area to be purified, is a land with mild climate and
    lush vegatation. Of the six lands, Fillmore proves to be the best suited
    for large towns. Take advantage of this to increase your level and gain
    valuable experience.

    Strategy for Purifying Fillmore

    Clearing out the monsters'lair first, proves to be a good starting
    strategy. First build a road to the monsters' lair (1). Then do the same
    for (2) and (3). You may now move acros the river and seal (4).
    Doing this will eliminate all the monsters and allow you and your people to
    develop the town to its greatest potential.



    To clear the small bushes arpund the shrine, try using 'Lightning'. SP used
    in creating 'Miracies' can be recovered by defeating monsters with the
    Angel's arrows. To create 'Lightning', push B-Button to open the command
    window; select 'Miracles' icon. Use the control pad to select 'Lightning'.
    Use the Square on the ground to choose the area you wish to burn.

    Lead your people to the monsters' lair.

    How to seal the monsters' lair. Press B-Button to open the command window.
    Use the control pas to select 'Direct the People' icon. Choose 'Building
    Direction' with B-Button. After you are asked about the direction of
    development, select the direction by moving the Yellow Square with the
    control pad (You may move up to eigth blocks). When a road reaches the
    selected location, your people will stop building the town (flashing
    blinkers and arrows around the Yellow Square disappear). Repeat this
    procedure to lead your people in other directions.

    Listen to your people carefully.

    In the process of developing a town, disasters may occur. You people will
    come to you with various problems. After listing to your people you can
    sometimes use 'Miracles' to help them. Example: A fire has broken out in a
    town. To put it out simply use the 'Miracles', 'Rain'.

    - 32 -

    How to use 'Offerings'.

    After sealing to the monsters' lairs, direct the people to Point A and they
    will offer you a 'Source of Magic' icon. Note: You must take an offering
    before you can use it. First, push B-Button to open the command window.
    Select 'Offerings', push B-Button to then select the 'Take an Offering'

    Pay close attention to all information, not just the building direction.

    If you follow the suggestions of your people and cast 'Lightning' on Point
    B, the 'Magical Fire' icon will be offered. When the development of his
    town reaches a certain point, your people will begin to fish. A 'Source of
    Magic' icon will be found and offered.

    Acquiring new technology.

    When you seal the three monsters' lairs, your people will discover 'Bridge'
    technology. With this technology, you can build homes on the other side of
    the river. This will enable you to seal the last Monsters' lair (4). Besure
    to take the new technology with you into Bloodpool.

    to the lair so they may seal it. Next dry up any marshes with the 'Sun'
    rays. Give the 'Bridge' technology to your people by selecting the 'Use
    Offering' icon in the Offerings' command. Now you will be able to seal the
    monsters' lairs (2) and (3).



    Use 'Sun' to clear the marshes.

    After sealing the monsters' lair, turn the marshes into green fields by
    using the 'Sun' icon under 'Miracles'. When you give your people the
    'Bridge' technology acquired in Fillmore, they will build homes on the
    other side of the river. At a certain stage in the development of this
    town, people begin growing 'Wheat'. Take it as an offering.
    'Wheat' may also be planted in Kasandora, Marahna and Fillmore.

    Help Teddy!

    At a cetain point, the people stop developing the town because they are
    woried about Teddy, a boy who has been away from home for quite a while.
    You will be offered a 'Load of Bread' from Teddy's mother. Once you find
    Teddy, give him the 'Load of Bread'. Upon his return, you will be offered a
    'Magic Skull'. This will be needed to seal the final monsters; lair (4).
    Make sure you take it with the 'Take an Offering' command. If you cause it
    to 'Rain', you will get a 'Source of Life' icon also.

    The monsters' lair is hidden under the bushes. Use the 'Lightning' icon to
    burn away the bushes revealing this lair. Now use the 'Magic Skull' icon to
    seal it. The water in the lake will then be purified and your people will
    begin to fish. A 'Magic Stardust' icon will be found while fishing and
    offered to you. After you finshed ACT II, a dispute may occur among your
    people. 'Harmonious Music', which you can acquire in Kasandora, will help
    resolve this problem. When the population increases to a certain point, the
    people invent a 'Compass'.


    There are eight items that may be acquired in Bloodpool. Try and take
    'Wheat' because it feeds more people than the corn fields.

    'Miracles' and the land will begin to develop.

    Strategy for Purifying Kasandora

    There are no obstacles besides th desert, so start to seal the monsters'
    lair nearest the shrine. It will be most helpful if you develop the town in
    one direction rather than in several directions.



    Use 'Rain' to clear the Desert

    Turn the desert into green fields by using the 'Rain' icon under
    'Miracles'. Some of monsters' lairs are hidden beneath the sand, so work
    diligently to turn the whole desert back in to a fertile land. Now that you
    have exposed the monsters' lairs, see that they are sealed up. If you give
    the 'Wheat' acquired in Bloodpool, it will help increase the population.

    they will offer you a 'Source of Magic' icon and 'Harmonious Music'.

    of the desert, you will get a 'Source of Magic' icon.

    of Life' icon will be offered to you. After clearing ACT II, a plague may
    strike Kasandora that only a certain herb can cure (Search Marahna for the
    cure). Once the town is developed extensively, you may discover an 'Ancient

    while fighting these demons.

    front of the shrine. If you make it rain om the shrine as he asks, it will
    be appreciated. When the level of culture rises, the people will build
    windmills. If the people tell you that the windmills have stopped due to
    lack of wind, causing development of the town to stop, make the wind blow
    with 'Wind' icon under 'Miracles'.

    Obtain the 'Sheep's Fleece'.

    After sealing the monsters' lair and building a road to the foot of the
    mountain, some of the people will start climbing. After a while they will
    offer you a 'Source of Magic' icon discovered at the top. With further
    development of the town, the people will also offer you a 'Sheep's Fleece'.
