Once, long ago, it was threatened with extinction by an evil force. At that time, four heroes arose and saved the world. The legend of these four heroes inspires many boys and girls even today. Alex is no different than any other kid his age. He has friends, three to be exact: Ramus the rotund dreamer. Nall, his constant companion (and rumoured offspring of a white dragon). And Luna, the orphan that Alex's parents took in. - Page - 9 Alex dreams of taking his friends on fantastic adventures like his hero, Dragonmaster Dyne. Dyne, one of the four heroes, is said to have perished under mysterious circumstances while safeguarding the Goddess Althena. A monument in his honour is erected just outside Alex's village of Burg. Alex visits Dyne's memorial nearly every day and dreams of the day he, too, will be able to go on an exciting journey. Just once, he longs to know how it feels to have that rush of adrenaline when facing off against life-threatening danger. Soon, much sooner than he can imagine, Alex will have the chance to find out... - Page - 10 Cast Of Characters ------------------ Alex Alex dreams of one day becoming a Dragonmaster like his hero, Dyne. But to fulfil his dream, he must leave behind all that he holds dear. Much more is in store for young Alex than he realizes. Hopefully, he'll live long enough to tell about it. - Page - 11 Luna Alex's parents have taken care of Luna since she was a child. She is Alex's childhood sweetheart, though she'll never admit it. No one can match the power of her magical songs. Like most adolescents her age, she has many questions about herself. Unfortunately, they're about to be answered... Nall When Alex was a small child, a mysterious man gave his father this strange, winged, catlike creature that unfortunately grew up with an attitude. He tends to get Alex into a lot of trouble by smarting off at the wrong time. But, he'll get what's coming to him... sooner or later! - Page - 12 Nash This extremely overconfident magician's apprentice is an understudy to Ghaleon, the most powerful magician in Vane. If he isn't studying for his latest exam at the Magic Guild, he can be found trying to impress the woman of his dreams, Mia. Too bad Nash isn't as successful at trying to win Mia's heart as he is with magic. - Page - 13 Mia Mia is the daughter of Lemia, one of the Four Heroes, and the leader of Vane. Lemia has protected Mia from the outside world for so long that she is oblivious to the joys and hardships found in the world below. Despite her mild nature, she is actually a very powerful magician. If she could one new magic trick, it would be making Nash disappear. - Page - 14 Kyle After winning the approval of Master Mel of Meribia, Kyle was put in charge of protecting the Nanza Barrier. Despite his youth, he is a master swordsman, and well-respected by his loyal followers. He can't help but find himself attracted to Jessica, even though she can't stand his chauvinistic ways. He only has one flaw... his ego! - Page - 15 Jessica Jessica is the daughter of Master Mel, one of the Four Heroes, and the governor of Meribia. As an apprentice priest at Althena's Shrine, she is a master of healing spells. Don't let the sweetness she displays around her father fool you; Jessica is a very brave and independent woman. She is at constant odds with Kyle, hoping that one day he will treat all woman as equals. (Yeah, right.) - Page - 16 Ramus Ramus is the son of the Village Elder in Burg and Alex's friend. He hopes that Alex will one day get over his fascination with Dragonmaster Dyne. His one ambition in life is to become filthy rich. He wants it all: fast horses, expensive food, and beautiful women. It's Ramus' craving for fame and fortune that starts Alex's adventure. - Page - 17 Laike Laike is an extremely talented swordsman who lacks the ability to use magic. This very helpful and very friendly man usually appears out of nowhere and sticks around just long enough to impart advice to Alex before disappearing from the scene. Never content to stay in one place, Laike is constantly wandering around the world. Just wait until his past catches up with him! Quark The Legendary white dragon Quark is rumoured to live in the cave just south of the village of Alex's hometown, Burg. As the constant companion of Dyne, Quark once fought alongside the Four Heroes in order to protect the Goddess Althena, but no one has seen Quark since Dyne's untimely demise. Will Alex be able to find him? - Page - 18 Mel As the leader of Meribia, Master Mel has earned the respect and loyalty of the townsfolk. He is known for his ferocious fighting style, which earned him the nickname "Hell Mel." After life in the spotlight as one of the Four Heroes, Mel settled down and fathered a child by the name of Jessica. She is Mel's pride and joy... His life. Ghaleon Ghaleon is the premier of the Magic City of Vane, and the Magic Guild's most powerful sage. He has never quite been the same since he witnessed the death of Dragonmaster Dyne, his best friend. Whenever a threat to the Guild arises, Ghaleon applies all of his unrivalled wisdom and strength to snuff it out. - Page - 19 Lemia Lemia is the leader of Vane, and the founder of the Magic Guild, which instructs others on how to unlock their magical abilities. In recent weeks, it seems that Lemia has been on the crotchy side, becoming quite harsh in her treatment of the people. Even her own daughter, Mia, is wondering what is going on. Is it menopause or madness? Dyne Dragonmaster Dyne had the ability to command and use the power of the four Dragons in order to protect the Goddess Althena. Unfortunately, none of these powers could save him from perishing under mysterious circumstances. With each passing year, the legend of Dyne continues to inspire both boys and girls alike. - Page - 20 Tempest Tempest lives in the village of Pao, in the Stadious Zone. With the recent epidemic that has broken out in the Prairie, Tempest and Fresca are forced to leave their village in order to find a cure. Tempest is a very strong and brave fighter who doesn't back down from a fight. Hopefully, he's strong enough to face what lies ahead. Fresca Fresca's hometown of Pao has recently been struck with an epidemic that is slowly killing all of the inhabitants. With no know cure, Fresca and Tempest are faced with losing their entire village. With the village in these dire circumstances, she and Tempest decide to leave the village in order to find a cure before it's too late. - Page - 21 Myght With a severe case of body odour, Might stays hidden in his tower, away from the hare-brained people of the outside world. From the secluded location, he spends his time creating one invention after another. However, it is rumoured that he is working on an incredible flying machine. Even more incredible than his legendary B.O. Taben Taben is an evil inventor who has begun work on a mechanized castle. He has enslaved the people of Talon in order to mine for the minerals that he needs to complete the fortress known as the Grindery. With the Magic Emperor backing him, Taben's Grindery will be unstoppable. Can Taben be stopped before he makes the Grindery operational? - Page - 22 Royce Royce is a constantly busy prognosticator of the future who operates a small shop on Black Rose Street and consults with Lemia Ausa, the leader of Vane and the Magic Guild. While she doesn't mind peering into the lives of others, she keeps her own life to herself. Strangely, she and Nash seem to have a special bond... Phacia Phacia is the head priestess of Althena's Shrine, located at the foot of the Goddess Tower. Much like Althena, she has a friendly demeanour and a hypnotic beauty that dazzles anyone in her presence. In fact, many of the shrines inhabitants are under the impression that she is the physical representation of Althena herself. Could it be true? - Page - 23 Xenobia Xenobia is the leader of the Vile Tribe that inhabits the Frontier. The Magic Emperor, with whom she is infatuated, has given her extremely powerful magical spells. One of her favourite spells allows her to mimic the physical appearance of another person. This hotty's going to make Alex's life very difficult. Magic Emperor With the added talents on Xenobia and Taben, the Magic Emperor has set in motion his plans to rule the world of LUNAR. As his power continues to grow, only a Dragonmaster will be capable of stopping him before he destroys all that Althena has built. Will Alex become a Dragonmaster in time? - Page - 24 Picture - Page - 25 Keisuke Shigematsu, Scenario Writer - Part I -------------------------------------------- Interview Not entered. - Page - 26 Starting The Game ----------------- If the START button is pressed during the opening animation, the Title screen will be displayed.

The Tactics screen can be use to program how a character reacts during one round of combat. The Tactics screen is divided into two sections. The top of the screen displays the characters and their commands. The bottom half shows the current tactic: ONE, TWO or THREE. A box will be placed around the currently selected tactic. To create an effective tactical system, carry out the following commands. First, move the cursor to right or the left to select which tactic to setup. Once a tactic has been chosen, move the cursor up or down to select a character. Once a character has been chosen, press the button. Next, decide how the character will react during battle. This is done in the form of six icons: COMMAND, AI, ATTACK, MAGIC, ITEMS, and DEFEND. These icons are described below. Command ------- Allows the character's actions to be programmed manually during combat. AI -- Artificial Intelligence. The computer will decide how the character reacts during combat. Attack ------ The character will attack, or move to attack the closest enemy. Magic ----- The character will use a selected magic during combat. Items ----- A selected item will be used during a battle. Defend ------ The character will try to defend from an attack. - Page - 45 To decide how a character should react during battle, move the cursor to the right or the left to select the appropriate action. After an action has been selected, press the button. The character will then carry out that command. If ITEM is selected, the character's inventory will be displayed. Next, move the cursor to select an item. Press the button. The character will then use that item during combat. Remember, only items that are highlighted in white can be selected. [Note: Once the selected item is gone, the character will default to DEFEND.] If MAGIC is selected, all of the spells a character has memorized will be displayed. Move the cursor to select the desired spell. Press the button. The character will then cast the spell during combat. [Note: Once the character's MP is depleted, the character will default to DEFEND.] There are times when the characters will not execute the tactical options that have been selected. This is usually due to the fact that the character doesn't have enough MP or items to carry out the specified action. Before combat, make sure each character has enough MP or items to carry out their programmed tactics. When a character is unable to do the programmed option, the option will be grayed-out on the Tactics screen. - Page - 46 Formation --------- Change attack formation. The Formation screen is divided into two sections: the box on the left of the screen shows the current, or old, configuration, while the right box shows the repositioned, or new formation. When arranging characters it is best to put stronger characters in the front while keeping the weaker characters toward the back. This way the enemy will generally attack the characters in the front while leaving the others alone. A box will be displayed around the currently selected character. Use the Directional buttons to move the character to the desired location. Once the character is moved, or if no change is necessary, press the button. Once all of the characters are moved, the following menu options will appear: OK, ADJUST, or CANCEL. Choose OK to have the character order changed to the current configuration, ADJUST to modify the current arrangement, or CANCEL to exit the Formation screen and leave the options as they were. - Page - 47 Picture - Page - 48 Combat Menu ----------- When exploring certain areas in the game, the characters will come face-to-face with some of the most fearsome beasts ever beheld. The only way to successfully defeat these creatures is to master the Combat menu. Take the time to become familiar with it; otherwise, there's only one butt that's gonna get kicked! Just a little hint: It's not the enemy's. Combat Menu Screen ------------------ Menu Icons ---------- The combat menu is done in the form of icons. The four icons represent the following: AI, COMMAND, TACTICS, and RUN. Battlefield ----------- Shows the progression of the battle. Enemy Window ------------ List the monster's name(s) and the number that are attacking. Status ------ Displays the characters who are currently in the group, and their current status. The status shows the character's name, current level, and the current value of HP and MP. - Page - 49 Check the character's status ---------------------------- It is necessary to watch the character's status during combat to see how well they are doing. There are four colors (green, white, orange and red) that represent the current status of a character's HP or MP. Consult the list below for the Hp or MP percentage values for each color. COLOR | % OF HP/MP ------------------- Green | 100 White | 99 - 50 Orange | 49 - 25 Red | 24 - 0 ------------------- Changes to the character's status --------------------------------- Since the majority of the enemies have the ability to cast magic spells, one of the party members is bound to get nailed. A character can be in one of the following conditions: GOOD, POISON, STONED, CONFUSE, SLEEP, MUTE, PARALYZE, or FAINT. Good ---- The character's status is normal Poison ------ If a character is poisoned, their HP will gradually decrease during combat.

Paralyze -------- The character will not move, and it is difficult to heal them. Faint ----- Gone, comatose, dead, wasted. The character is useless until they are resurrected. - Page - 50 When there are changes to a character's status during battle, a number will appear next to them showing the effect on the character. The number will be color coded and have the following effects on a character. White - This displays damage to a characters HP. Green - Recovery of HP and/or MP. Red - Displays a critical hit to the character's defensive abilities. Orange- An increase in attack power. Yellow- Displays the damage done when a character has a special item to ward off attack. Blue - An increase in defensive power. AI -- Artificial Intelligence. The computer will decide how all of the characters will react during battle. Once AI has been activated, the characters will battle vigorously until the battle is either won or lost. The AI icon will appear in the upper right hand corner until the battle is finished, or AI is cancelled. To cancel AI, simply press the button. After the current round of combat, the Combat menu will be displayed. - Page - 51 Command ------- The option allows command options to be selected for each individual party member. Each character can choose from these six commands: AI, ATTACK, MAGIC, ITEMS, DEFEND, and RUN. AI -- Artificial Intelligence.

There are three tactical icons, as well as the Command icon, on the Tactical Menu. If the Command icon is selected, the individual commands can be set for each party member. To use a tactic, select which one to use by moving the cursor to the desired tactic. Press the button. The character will then perform their assigned tactics. After tactics are carried out, the Combat menu will once again be displayed. The tactical option only lasts for one round of combat. Run --- Flee from battle. After selecting this command the entire party will try to flee from the attack. However, escape is not always possible. If the party is unable to escape, they'll have to endure a round of pummelling before they can fight back. If they do run away successfully, no experience points will be awarded. Characters must receive experience points in order to increase their levels. If their levels don't increase, their physical strength, skills, or magical abilities will not increase. This will obviously lead to them getting a severe thrashing during a battle. Of course, nothing can compare to the many frustrating hours that one would have to endure raising a character's level in order to beat a boss. Be wise, don't run away from a battle unless absolutely necessary! - Page - 53 Death ----- The end of it all. If all the party members are killed during combat, the Load screen will appear. To avoid unwanted setbacks, save frequently! Nothing sucks more than having to replay a whole section of the game just to get back to where the characters died. Remember, save is your closest friend. To load a game, first select which Memory Card Slot (see page 38 for a detailed description) to use by pressing the L1 or R1 buttons. Press the button Next, move the cursor to select which file to load. To load a previously saved game, choose a save file to use. Press the button. Confirm the decision to load a game by selecting "Yes". The game will load. To cancel, simply select "No". Please do not remove the Memory Card during a save or a load. Recover HP and MP! ------------------ Before leaving a town or journeying into a dungeon, make a habit to visit a Goddess Statue. Usually a statue can be found in every town and temple. Make sure to take advantage of their mystical healing power. These statues are rumoured to be in the form of Althena and can be used to recover the HP and MP of the party members. To recover HP and MP, simply press the button while standing next to the Goddess Statue. The HP and MP will be recovered for each character. - Page - 54 Picture - Page - 55 Isao Mizoguchi, Music --------------------- Interview Not entered. - Page - 56 Shops ----- As Alex and his party journey to new and exciting lands, make sure to visit all of the many towns along the way. Upon arriving in a new town, make it a habit to visit the local shops to upgrade weapons, protective gear, or items. If funds are becoming low, sell the character's unwanted equipment for some cold hard silver. Then use that silver to invest in the latest and greatest weapons and protective gear. Doing so will make them more effective during combat. Don't forget to stock up on items. Items are essential in keeping the characters in good health during their journeys. The shop and its two options, BUY and SELL, are described below. Shop Menu Screen ---------------- Party ----- Displays the characters in the party. If the character doesn't move at the top of the screen, they cannot use or equip the item. (S) Silver ---------- Amount of silver the party has collected. Items ----- Displays weapons, protective gear, or items that are for sale. The name of the weapon, protective gear, or item will be displayed along with a brief description. The purchase price is displayed above the party's silver. Status ------ Displays the effect of equipping the weapon or protective gear to the character. - Page - 57 Buy --- Purchase Goods. After selecting "Buy" from the menu, move the cursor to select which character will purchase an item. Press the button. Now select some equipment to purchase. Press the button. There are three options to choose from: EQUIP, purchases the item and automatically equips it to the character: BUY, purchases the item and places it in the character's inventory: or CANCEL, voids the transaction. After selecting "Equip" or "Buy", simply press the button to purchase the item. To stop the purchase, select "Cancel". The equipment will not be purchased. There are a couple things to remember when purchasing weapons, armour and items. First, if an item is not written in white letters, the characters do not have enough silver to purchase it. Second, if a character doesn't move, they are unable to equip that weapon or protective gear. Finally, before purchasing weapons and protective gear for a character, make sure that they increase their attack or defensive power. Usually, it's best only to purchase items that improve a character's status. Sell ---- Sell Goods. Before selling an item, remember that most items will be sold at half their price. To sell an item, select "Sell". Press the button. Next, move the cursor to select which character. Press the button. After choosing an item to sell, press the button. To confirm the decision to sell the item, select "Sell". The item will be sold and removed from the character's inventory. To stop the sale of an item, select "Cancel". The item will not be sold. Make sure not to sell an item that mat be needed later. [Note: Some items cannot be sold.] - Page - 58 Picture - Page - 59 Noriyuki Iwadore, Composer -------------------------- Interview Not entered. - Page - 60 Weapons, Armour, & Items ------------------------ Dagger ------ This small dagger has a very low attack level, But, most characters use it.

Sometime we will surly meet- as the charming future beckons us on. Let's start the journey to a new world! Open the door to a memorable legend! - Page - 77 English Lyrics -------------- In your dreams, magical thoughts... All things are real unless you dream they're not. In your dreams, love is the plot carried on wings of hope. Each of our souls intertwine, when we do. Instantly we see it the time to grow and be it when everything is pinned on a hope. Let rise the dreams of your heart, that innocent youth careless and kind. Free to roam the breeze in love only when two brilliantly shine as one... - Page - 78 Boat Song Lyrics ---------------- Original Japanese Lyrics ------------------------ As travelling across the sea, from the unknown country, the wind passes gently behind my ears, will you tell me if people live with the same bewildering feeling inside? To love someone, or to be loved by someone- I wonder what those feelings are like? I can only feel vaguely from afar. I want to cherish the feeling that has just started inside me, the fate trembles my heart like the wind. - Page - 79 English Lyrics -------------- Wishing on a dream that seems far off Hoping it will come today. Into the starlit night, Foolish dreamers turn their gaze, Waiting on a shooting star. But, what if that star is not to come? Will their dreams fade to nothing? When the horizon darkens most, We all need to believe there is hope. Is an angel watching closely over me? Can there be a guiding light I've yet to see? I know my heart should guide me, but, There's a hole within my soul. What will fill this emptiness inside of me? Am I to be satisfied without knowing? I wish then for a chance to see, Now all I need, Is my star to come... - Page - 80 Picture - Page - 81 Toshiyuki Kubooka, Art Director - Part II ----------------------------------------- Interview Not entered.
