enlightened ones live in Zeal while the non magic using Earthbound ones live in a
village known as Algetty. This is where Magus and the three gurus are from. The
queen here is corrupted by Lavos, which is the power source of Zeal.
You start in Crono's home. Go downstairs and get your allowance from Crono's mom.
Go to the mayor's house and get the money from th upstairs. Talk to the people if you want to learn somthing. Go to the south continent to the Porre Shop. Buy whatever defense items you can afford. don't buy the sword. Now go to the Fair. Go directly up. Bump into the girl. This is Marle. Grab her pendant and give it to her. She will ask to join you. Say yes. Now go to Guardia Forest and fight the Hetakes (the mushroom looking things) and build your level to at least five. Go to the lower lower right part of the forest. You'll see a sparkling object. Press "A" above it and receive a power tab.Go back to the fair and earn silver points. However you like. you can fight Gato, bet on the races, the hammer challenge or the soda guzzling contest. Trade the points for gold and when you have enough, buy the a lode sword from Melchior. The Sword will help a lot. Four things to do at the fair. Don't ask Marle to sell her pendant. Have the cat follow you to the little girl. Don't take the pink package near the old man. And when you go to see Lucca's invention, Marle will want candy. Wait until she buys something. dont move until then. This will help you prove your innocense later on. You will want to get the clone buy paying 40 silver points at the Tent of Horrors if you want Crono back later. Get the cat for 80 points if you want kittens. Keep paying 80 points for cat food. When you get enough, your cats will have kittens. When you are ready, go to north to Lucca's invention. When Taban finishes talking, talk to Lucca and use the telepod then talk to Marle. She will disappear. Get her pendant and go into the past. Dont go into the right telepod or you will die in the hands of Lavos.
You'll find yourself in a canyon. go to the upper left and you will be attacked by imps. there easy and cant do more than 10 points of damage each. Kill them and go though the upper left corner. continue moving, fight whatever enemies and exit. go to each building and talk to everyone. Now go through Guardia forest. tip: when you see bushes rustling press "A" in front of them and be attacked or get a shelter. At the lower left part of the forest you will see two sparkling objects. Dont go for the lower one. It will cause two roly riders to appear. Anyway, go north and go to Guardia Castle. You will be stopped by soldiers but Queen Leene will stop them from doing anything. Go talk to everyone ,Don't open any chests in the castle. you can get better suff in 1000 A.D. Now head for the Queen's room which is to the right of the thrones. talk to the Queen to discover she is really Marle. She will disappear. Head downstairs and meet Lucca. She will tell you that Marle is actully Princess Nadia in 1000 A.D. but history has changed. Now you must rescue the real Queen to get Marle back. Go to the Truce store and upgrade whatever you need to. you will need 2 shelters, about 20 tonics and maybe a revive or two. Build up Lucca until she learns flame toss. Go to the cathredral and talk to the nun near the organ. You will then see a sparkling object. Pick it up and you'll be attacked by the nuns, who are really naga-ettes. Use the fire whirl combo to kill them easily. When you do, a hidden naga-ette will appear and strike Lucca. Frog will come to the rescue. Join him and leave. Go to Guardia forest and build up Frog until he gets slurp cut and learn the X-Strike combo. Play the organ to open up a secret door. Go to the right and go north. open the door and open the chests. equip whatever upgrades you get. go to the drawer with the egg on it and press "A". You will get the secret naga-ette bromide. You will be attacked. The bromide will not appear on your inventory list, but dont worry, you have it. above is a door surrounded by spikes. Use the skull on the wall to lower them. go inside. the bucket on the left contains a tab. take it. go to the left into the monsters' dining hall. The upper room contains three monsters. Try to leave and you will be attacked. Go to the right to find a door. dont talk to the monsters. Go up and open the chests. Leave and go to the center door. there is a save spot. save and use a shelter if you need to. Go to the right and fall down the stairs. go up and push the skull. go around and back to the save spot. go to the door above and you'll be attacked. Destroy them and play the organ. now go around and you'll find a new door. run though the enemies and to the save spot. if you need to fight, fight. use a shelter and save. no go though the door to fight the Yakra. The Yakra is easy if your levels aren't too low. Use X-strike and flame toss. recover with tonics. the fight shouldn't last more than ten rounds. Open the chests to find an item and the real chancellor. At Guardia Castle, Frog will leave. go to the queen's room to get back Marle. Go to the canyon where the gate was. Lucca will open it with the gate key and you will return to your own time.
Take Marle home to the castle. You will be arrested for kidnapping the princess. Now the trial will start. Depending on what you did in the fair you will be pronounced guity or innocent. Either way you will be sent to jail and setup to be executed. When in the prison cell, drink from the cup and take the packe. dont bother the guards. And if you do, dont hit the guard back. If you do, youll have to fight every guard in the prison. Wait for execution. Lucca will burst in and knock the guards out. Outside, release the man. He is Fritz, the Truce merchant's son. He will give you stuff later. Look at the unconcious guards to get mid tonics. When you see the supervisor on the floor, look at him for 5 mid tonics. Read the top secret document on the floor. Now go out. You will fight the Dragon Tank. To destroy the dragon tank, attack the head with weapons. Fire wont hurt the head, so dont use fire whirl or flame toss. After you destroy the head, go for the grinder. Then destroy the body. You'll now be joined by Marle again and you will run into the woods. You'll find a gate. Open it and escape from the guards.
You find yourself in the Bonger dome with a sealed door and the gate. don't bother going through the gate. The woods are blocked of. Go south to the Trann dome and buy whatever you need and talk to the people. Use the enertron and go north to lab 16. Caution: if you stay outside too long, you'll take damage. Pass through the lab and open any chests you find. They will contain weapons and useful items. Dont touch the rats or they'll steal tonics from you. The shadows can only be hurt by magic, so use fire whirl to kill all of them at once. Through the lab, you'll see Arris dome. They are waiting for food to be delivered from the basement. use the enertron and save. Go to the basement and look at the rat. Keep moving and fight the Guardian and it's two Bits. Dont attack the Guardian or be hit with a counterattack. Get rid of the bits first, recovering when you need to. When the bits are gone, hit the guardian hard and fast. If it's countdown reaches zero, it revives the bits. repeat the method to trash the Guardian. When you go into the food compartment, you'll find a dead man clutching some seeds. take it and look at him to read about the rat. Chase the rat and press "A" to catch him. He'll tell the secret code of the info center. go to the right console and press "L" and "R" at the same time press "A". Go through the maze and find the central computer. You see the time gate is in the Proto Dome. Marle presses another button and you watch in horror as Lavos comes from the Core and destroys the world. There you decide to change time to prevent the Day of Lavos. You give the seeds to Doan for the Jet Bike key. Go to Lab 32 to the east. You can go through Sewer Access to meet Belthasar in the Keeper's Dome but, you wont get anything from him. In Lab 32, you meet Johnny, an insect-like robot. Race him. Doesnt matter if he's winning for the beginning but went the very top meter reads about 20, you must turbo boost in front of him to win. When you win, go back into the race course on foot and get the race recorder. You dont need this device, since it only records your speed when you cross the finish line. Go east then south into the Proto Dome. There is an enertron inside if you need it, but you must fight two groups of debuggers. First a group of three and then a group of four. Keep going up to find a robot. This is Robo. Lucca will repair him and he will join you. Since the door to the gate is unpowered, a patry of three must go to the factory to power the door and one person must stay to keep it open. I suggest taking Marle. The Aura Whirl combo will come in handy. Go to factory and have robo deactivate the laser. An acid will fall and you'll have to fight him. Be careful. It has about 10 h.p. but it has an unbelievable high defense. Go to the right elevator. enter the conveyor belt and touch a robot. The crane will pick you up and doposit you on another conveyor belt. You must fight through three rooms of debuggers and Proto 3s. When you finish, the conveyor belt drops you off. Go down and fight the Bugs. Go to the computer room on the right to learn the crane control codes. go to the left to the crane controls. Press "B","B" to remove one barrel and "X","A" to remove the other barrel. go to the room you couldnt access before because of the barrels and use the computer. it will tell you the power activation code. Go back up and go to the left elevator to the lab. You'll fight alkalines and acids. destroy the monster that has only one in it's number since they can do a powerful combo attack. Use the computer to open the hatch. Continue until you reach another computer access it, fight the monsters and go down. activate the power by pressing "X","A","B","Y" at the last computer. Pull the switch to power up. Then run out since the security will go haywire. run to the exit. You will be stopped by Robo's old friends. They will scrap him for being a defect and come after you. Two cyclones will destroy three robots. use auara and aura whirl when you need to recover. You will take Robo to Lucca to be fixed. Go through the the door and into the Gate, which will malfunction and send you elsewhere.
The End of Time
You end up in a room with three pillars. go down to the door and talk to the old man. you are at the end of time, where lost time travelers end up. Go up and the old man will say "Hey". Always talk to the old man when he says that. It means he has new info. Now he will tell you to go behind him. The door will be unlocked and you will see a furry creature. This is Spekkio. Answer his question and run around the room clockwise to learn magic. Dont fight him yet. He is tough. The old man says to go to 1000 A.D. but dont. go to mystic mountain. Go to the right and down Try to avoid fights. these enemies are extremely hard right now. Go east and visit each hut. One has a woman that will give you sweet water that recovers HP/MP.

You will need them. about 20 should do. Go north into the cave. Fight through the enemies until you reach the save point. prepare for a grueling battle with the Heckran. Magic will hurt but don't use weapons, unless you want to die. use delta force to drain his energy. Use single techs when you need to use aura whirl. defeat him to find out about the connection between Lavos and the Magus. Jump in the pool behind the chamber and go to Lucca's house.
