A Legend of Two Realms

Many, many years ago it was a time of fantasy and intrigue.  Legends passed
from generation to generation.  People loved to spin takes of great warriors
rising up against the tyrannical forces of those who ruled.

One such legend spoke of a world that was once divided into two different
lands.  The two realms existed in harmony:  one ruled by humans, the other
ruled by demons.  There was rarely conflict between the two realms until one
fateful day.

Six magical stones fell from the sky into the demon's realm.  Inscribed on
the stones were the Crests of Fire, Earth, Air, Water, Time and Heaven.
These crests, when united, would grant unimaginable power.

Soon the demons began to fight over these magical crests.  The demon realm
erupted into civil war.  The land was in turmoil over the stones until
finally one red demon emerged with five stones by defeating the others.  This
demon was known as Firebrand.

Firebrand was not satisified that possessing the Crests of Fire, Earth, Air,
Water and Time would end the

war.  He then challenged the Demon Dragon for the Crest of Heaven.  After a
long and desperate battle, Firebrand slayed the Dragon and gained the final
Crest.  But the price of victory was high.  Firebrand was critically
wounded.

Firebrand also did not realize that while he was obtaining the Crests, his
success only moved him closer to failure.  The jealous demon Phalanx secretly
trailed Firebrand and waited for just the right moment.

"I have defeated the Red Demon!" Phalanx cried.  "I shall reign supreme!
With the power of the Crest, both the demon world and the human world are
mine!"

Firebrand vowed revenge on Phalanx.  Phalanx was clever, though.  He
separated the crests in case someone did rise up to challenge the power
he possessed.

And now someone has risen to the challenge.  The legend of Firebrand is about
to unfold in the search of the Demon's Crest!

[Page 8]_____________________________________________________________________

Firebrand

The red demon awakens to excude revenge on Phalanx and recover the stones of
the Demon's Crest!  It's up to you to guide Firebrand through the demon
realm to locate the stones and gain spells, potions, talismans and coins.

a different function but all are activated by pressing the B button.  Here is

against enemies.

appear at a time.

spikes, and Firebrand then can grab onto the claw and climb up the dangerous
walls.

Demon Fire - This is the most powerful fire in the realm!

Realm, but there are many abilities and special powers granted by each stone.

Gargoyle reduces the damage by one-half.

Flying Across the Realm/Map Select

Once the Firebrand reaches the end of an area or uses a special potion, he
will fly high into the sky and the viewpoint will switch from the side to
right behind Firebrand.  This allows him to choose a new area in the realm
to explore.  Here is an outline of how to control Firebrand as he flies
across the realm.

Trio the Pago's Gaming Shops

Throughout the realm, Trio has set up gaming shops for demons.  As you enter
the gaming shops, you see many torches burning brightly above Trio.  If you
pay Trio his fee, you may earn more G.P. by head-butting a certain number of
skulls that appear and quickly disappear throughout the holes in the wall
within Trio's shop.  Depending on the skill required, Trio will ask for a
larger fee, but you may earn more G.P. or other prizes if you are successful.

The Black Lotus, Wise Man and Talisman Shops

These shops allow you to fill your velliums or urns.  The Black Lotus shop
is run by Phorapa, who sells potions to fill your urns.  The Wise Man shop
is run by Morack and offers spells for your vellums.  The Talisman Shop is
run by Malwous.  While you find talismans in the realm, Malwous will identify
the talismans and tell you what they do for you.

To use these shops, move the wand to the item you want to purchase and press
the Y button.  The shop owners will ask you if you want to purchase the item,
so choose the response you want and press the START button.  The item will
