THE STORY
------------------

For centuries the Focus Tower had stood at the very heart of the World. It
had been a center for trade and knowledge, and the people of the World had
met there to peacefully settle their differences. But on one warm summer
day, the Tower was suddenly transformed into a symbol of the purest evil.
For on that day, powerful monsters battled their way into the Tower, stole
the four Crystals of the Earth, and then took off with the magical Coins
that had kept the Tower's doors unlocked.

With the Tower doors sealed behind them, the monsters relaxed their guard
and turned their attention to the Crystals. As they basked in the radiant
glow of the Crystals, the monsters grew stronger and meaner and even more
wicked. The more light the monsters consumed, the more the World was
drained of its warmth and color. Tremors soon shook the land. The sky grew
cloudy and dark. The seasons went berserk. Monsters appeared everywhere and
terrorized the people. The World was thrown into total chaos. Something had
to be done...

Enter Benjamin. Benjamin was the most normal youngster you could imagine.
Like most responsible villagers of his age, he arose at the crack of dawn
to take his family's livestock to the upper meadow to graze. Other kids
teased him because he read while tending his heard, and because a village
Elder had taken him in as a promising student. Although Benjamin seemed
mature beyond his years, he still dreamed of being more than he was --
faster, stronger and more daring. Little did he know his wishes were about
to be fulfilled the hard way...


                           BEGINNING THE QUEST

                  -------------------------------------

STARTING A NEW GAME
--------------------------------------

Choose "NEW GAME" if you are starting a new game and press the A Button.
Otherwise, highlight a data file, and press the A Button to begin your last
saved game.

ENTER A NAME
-------------------------

If you have selected NEW GAME, you will next see the Letter Select screen
shown at right. Select letters for the Hero's name using the Control Pad.
Press the A Button to enter a letter, the B Button to erase a letter. Press
the START Button to enter the name, and begin the game.

THE QUEST BEGINS
-------------------------------

After  entering the name of your Hero, the opening scenes will begin.
Listen well to the mysterious elderly man who will assist you throughout
the adventure. He'll give you your first destination.


                           OVERWORKED EXPLAINED

                 ----------------------------------------

The world of Mystic Quest is divided into an Overworld full of Icons, and
the places behind those Icons - which you'll have to enter to explore.
You'll notice you can't move freely about the Overworld. You can only move
in the direction of a blinking red and yellow arrow. Once in an Icon,
however, you can move freely.

BASIC OPERATION
-----------------------------

Just press the Control Pad in the direction of a blinking red and yellow
arrow, and you will automatically travel to the next Icon in that
direction. If no blinking arrows appear, press the A Button to enter the
Icon.



                          Press this button, and then
                    SELECTuse the Control Pad to scan
                          the entire Overworld. Press
                          again for game play.
                    A     Press to enter an Icon
                    X     Brings up the SAVE menu
                    START Brings up the Main Menu
                    B     Lets you enter an Icon

                    Y     Switches your ally's Battle
                          Mode from AUTO to MANUAL

SO MANY ICONS
--------------------------

Wherever the Hero stops on the Overworld you'll find an Icon, Some are
Battlefield Icons, and others look like towers, towns, and dungeons. To get
from one Icon to the next you may have to find your way through a maze,
solve a puzzle, or fight some intense battles! Gray arrows will flash red
and yellow when you've cleared a new route.

SUBTITLES
------------------

The name of your location is displayed on the Overwold map. Once you have
dropped into the Icon, you'll also see the place name until you press a
button. Floor numbers of caves and towers remain on the screen at all
times.

ENTERING ICONS
----------------------------

Press the A Button or the B Button to enter an Icon. Once you've dropped
into the world behind the Icon you'll find you can walk around and examine
things as you wish. Remember, to move from one place to another, you have
to exit an Icon, and follow the route shown on the Overworld map.

EXITING ICONS
-------------------------

Once you enter an Icon, be sure to remember what the entrance looks like -
you'll probably have to find it again to get out! You can leave Battlefield
Icons after finishing one or more rounds, or if you can manage to run from
an enemy.

UNABLE TO ENTER
------------------------------

You can't enter Battlefield Icons that have already been cleaned out. But
fear not! There will be more battlefields to come, and more treasure to be
won.


                             VITALITY WINDOW

                      ------------------------------

The Vitality Window, located at the bottom of the screen, allows you to
keep track of your party's life essence. Run out, and you're a goner!
Always make sure your characters have plenty of Cure Potions, or a working
Cure Spell handy.

NAME : The name you entered at the beginning of the game will appear here.

CURRENT WEAPON : The Icon of the weapon you are presently using appears
here.

LIFE METER : This shows the amount of life essence remaining in two
different modes.

SECOND PARTY : Your ally's Vitality Window looks just like yours, except
for the AUTO/MANUAL battle function that can be changed quickly by pressing
the Y Button.


                            PEOPLE COME AND GO

                   ------------------------------------

throughout the game people will join your party for a while, and then
leave. You'll never have more than one ally at a time. These people can
help you in your quest, so put them to good use. Hint : they make it easier
to clear out Battlefields!

LEVEL OF CHARACTER
------------------------------------

Although they're usually stronger than the Hero, characters joining your
adventure won't gain levels, and won't grow in ability and strength as you
do. Be sure to note their strengths and weaknesses, especially their
Vitality Level.

ABILITY OF CHARACTER
---------------------------------------

As you make your way through the adventure, the characters that join you
will be stronger and have more abilities. Always check a new ally's Item,
Spell, Armor and Weapons lists to see what they bring to the party!

WHO WAS THAT, ANYWAY?
------------------------------------------

Some people who join you during the game leave rather abruptly. You can
make your quest more enjoyable by writing down the names of characters,
their relationships to other characters, their hometowns and so forth.


                               IN THE TOWNS

                         ------------------------

You can walk about freely in the Worlds behind the Icons, such as towns.
Whenever you meet people, stop and listen, to what they have to say. Use
the information to figure out where to go next. A single character you fail
to speak to may hold a clue crucial to the progress of the game.

CONVERSATION
--------------------------

When you want to talk to someone, guide your character with the Control Pad
and walk right up to him or her. then press the A Button. Remember, walking
up to monsters will provoke battles.

2 OR MORE TALKING

window to see who is talking. the latest message will appear brightly on
the screen.

CHOP A TREE
---------------------

Whenever you're in an Icon World you can use your weapons for purpose other
than fighting. For example, you can use your Axe to cut trees or mushrooms
that block your path. In an icy world, try whacking statues with your
sword.

JUMPING
---------------

obstacles and people. Try jumping across things that look like stepping
stones.

rewarded with the contents if you have room for it. Unlike Wooden Chests,
which hold replenishable items such as Cure potions, Treasure Chests

them all!

                               HERE WE GO!

                          ---------------------

Prepare yourself. It is time to thrash the forces that are veiling the
World in Darkness. Talk to everyone you meet , but remember, monsters
usually dine first, and ask questions later. Enter your name, and press the
START Button to begin.

1) IN THE LEVEL FOREST
---------------------------------------

2 gray arrows mean you can't go anywhere on the Overworld. Press the A
Button to enter the Icon. Now you're in the Level Forest. See the elderly
man floating in front of you? Walk up and talk to him by pressing the A
Button. He'll tell you to save the Crystal of Earth. Head toward the
eastern part of the forest, and help the man you meet there. Then exit
towards the east. A new path has opened! Press the Control Pad in the
direction of the blinking arrow, and press the A Button when you stop.

2) IN FOREST A KAELI JOINS YOU
----------------------------------------------------

Take the Tree Wither you were given in the Level! Forest to Kaeli in
Foresta. She'll see the dry branches and get mad enough to join the fight.
Go through all of the house in the upper right corner of the town from the
back, after talking to the owner. Use the B Button to jump across the steps
in the water behind the house.

3) BACK TO THE LEVEL FOREST
--------------------------------------------------

After Kaeli joins your party, return to the Level Forest. Exit Foresta the
same way you entered, press the Control Pad toward the Level Forest, and
press the A Button when you arrive there. Once in the forest, head towards
the north. You can see some chests behind small trees. Be patient, you'll
be able to open these soon enough. Go through the forest  until you see two
trees blocking the path northward, and bump into the reddish-tinged one. Be
prepared to do battle!

4) FIRST BATTLEFIELD
------------------------------------

After leaving the Level Forest follow the new path northward by pressing up
on the Control Pad. the first Icon you'll reach is a Battlefield Icon.
Practice your fighting skills and gain some experience here so you can grow
stronger. Hint : Battlefields are easier to clear when you have an ally
with you!

5) SAND TEMPLE
---------------------------

Enter this Icon and open the chest in the upper right corner. It will be
empty, but some cheeky guy will walk into the room and ask you if you want
some Cure. This is Tristam , who is going to give you some Elixir for
Kaeli, but at a price. You'll have to go treasure hunting with him into the
depths of the Bone Dungeon!

6) NEXT BATTLEFIELD
-----------------------------------

Now you have another chance to polish your fighting skills in a
Battlefield! Take Tristam with you, and put him to work here. If you beat
the monsters you'll win the Charm Pendant, which protects against Charm
attacks.

7) BONE DUNGEON - 1F
------------------------------------

It's hard to move through the Bone Dungeon because of the shifting sands.
Steer clear of the middle of the caverns. You'll have to fight monsters to
reach treasure chests. Walk through the mouth of the skeleton at the top of
the screen to reach level Basement 1 (B1). Jump across the turtle shells in
the water by pressing the B Button. A bone gate blocks a secret path at the
top of the screen. Forget about it for now. Walk into the water, and
through the jaws of the beast skeleton on the far left. Climb out the
water, and you'll see a sealed door.

8) GO GET THE SHIELD AFTER LEARNING BOMB!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you approach the door, Tristam will show you how to use Bombs and sell
you some. Return to the bone gate you passed before, blow it up, and find
the Steel Shield that's hidden there.

9) BACK THROUGH THE DOOR
------------------------------------------------

After fetching the Shield, go back to, and through the door Tristam opened
for you with a Bomb. Walk into the cavern beyond, find a chest of Ninja
Stars for Tristam, and then make your way toward the stairway on the left.
Fight every chance you get. You must become stronger! But save at least 2
Bombs for the last 2 sealed doorways!

10) FIGHT FOR EXPLOSIVES
-------------------------------------------

Fight the Gorgon in B2 for a chest of Explosives. You'll need these to
replenish your supply. Make sure and save your game often!

11) BLOW OPEN THE RIBS
-----------------------------------------

Ribs are blocking the path as you head upwards in B2. Just use a Bomb to
clear them out of the way. To the right find more Ninja Stars for Tristam,
and then walk to the left.

12) STAY AGAINST THE EDGE
----------------------------------------------

As you reach the top of B2 the sands begin shifting, so keep to the edges
of the cavern. Fight through the monsters blocking your way to the next set
of ribs. Blow them open, and take the stairs leading to the next skeleton
in a different part of B2.

13) MORE RIBS!
-------------------------

Blow open the jaws. You'll fins Seeds in a chest toward the top of your
screen. Exit the ribs to the left. More jaws! Through these lies the Quake
Spell, at the top of the screen, and one more set of jaws off to the right.
Blow up these to reach the Boss Monster.

14) MEET THE BOSS
-------------------------------

The fearsome Flamerous Rex is guarding some priceless treasure. He's using
the power of the Crystal of Earth, so be careful. You have to beat him so
that Tristam will give you the Elixir you need. Try your Quake Spell out on
him, or use your Sword. Tristam should attack with Ninja Stars. Make sure
you save the game before taking on this beast!

15) RECEIVE ELIXIR
--------------------------------

tristam scoops up the treasure and leaves, but not before handing you the
Elixir Kaeli needs to get well. Be sure and check the Chests before
leaving, especially on the right side of the cavern where you'll find the
Sand Coin.

16) BACK TO FORESTA
-----------------------------------

Make your way out of the Bone Dungeon, but first save the game after you
have thrashed the Flamerous Rex! Now, can you find the exit? It's at the
bottom of the screen on the 1st floor. But watch out - you have to fight
your way out of the last cavern. Take the Elixir back to Kaeli in Foresta,
then return to the Sand Temple. A new route is open!

17) BATTLEFIELD #3
--------------------------------

Take the right route from the Sand Temple. The first stop will be a
Battlefield Icon. You can try to tackle some of the monsters here, but you
might want to wait until you're joined by an ally.

18) INTO THE FOCUS TOWER
---------------------------------------------

Now you're entering a realm of great darkness. You've recovered the light
from the Crystal of Earth, but three Crystals are still being drained. You
must pass through the Focus Tower on your way to your next destination.

19) INSIDE THE TOWER
-------------------------------------

As you make you're way toward the top of the screen, you'll see that
curious elderly man floating in a room to the left of the screen. Go up and
to the left to talk with him. You'll see treasure chests in rooms around
you. You can't get to these yet - just be patient.

20) TALK TO THE OLD MAN
-------------------------------------------

Listen carefully to what the man says, for he is giving you your next clue
(To find Phoebe). Then go up the stairs you see to the left. Remember that
the people you meet are going to guide you through your quest. Write down
the clues if you want to!

21) ONE ROOM, THREE DOORS
------------------------------------------------

At the top of the stairs you'll find three doors - gold, blue and purple.
Note that there is a different Icon on each door, indicating the magical
Coin that you must have before you can enter that door.

22) THROUGH THE GOLD DOOR
--------------------------------------------------

Walk up the gold door and press the A Button. It opens! The Icon on the
door matches the shape of the Sand Coin you took from the Bone Dungeon. If
you had overlooked the Coin, you'd have to go back and find it now! Always
search all caverns, rooms and other places carefully!

23) EXPLORE
---------------------

Once through the gold door, go up the stairs at the top of the screen.
You'll see a door on the second floor. Don't head that way yet! Go around,
and down until you see a Chest. Hop over the gap in the wall if you have
to, using the B Button, to get to the Chest.

24) IT'S THE FIRE SPELL!
--------------------------------------

Walk up to the Chest and press the A Button. You'll find the Fire Spell!
Use it in your next battle, but keep an eye on your Black Magic Spells
Remaining counter.

25) OUTSIDE THE TOWER
---------------------------------------

After finding the Fire Spell, go back to the stairways, and exit through
the door you see there. You're back in the Overworld! Now you have to find
Phoebe. Press the Control Pad in the direction of the blinking arrow.

26) BATTLEFIELD
---------------------------

Another Battlefield awaits you. What might you win here? Before you begin
slugging away, you might want to have an ally join you.

27) LIBRA TEMPLE
------------------------------

Continue on, following the flashing arrows, and you'll arrive at the Libra
Temple. Enter the Temple and go toward the top of the screen. A girl is
standing there! Talk to her, and you'll learn that she's Phoebe. You've got
to help her! When she joins you, follow the blinking arrows through
Battlefields, stopping to clear them, to Phoebe's house in Aquaria. And now
you're on your own!
