TH' BASICS [THBS] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ BATTLING [BTLN] _______________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Any RPGer who's played an SNES game can sightread these controls, but for those a little uninitiated, battling is simple. - Enemies appear on the map, i.e. there are no random encounters - Battling is Speed-based; this determines the turns for both foes/allies - Targets can be selected with the arrow pad - The current ally whose turn it is has certain abilities that require either a button to be pressed, held and released, or used in conjunction with the arrow pads (such as Barkley's Fadeaway Jumper). Enemies simply use their skills. There is a command menu for each character that looks like this: |¯¯¯¯¯¯¯| Each character has differing skills and a | SPECL | special option. For the latter, Hoopz can | | evade the next attack in full whenever that |¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯| occurs, while Cyberdwarf can take damage for | SKILLS | ATTCK | ITEMS | his allies with a 33% damage reduction. Items, |________|_______|_______| Attack, and Flee options appear on everyone's | | starting grid and have same functionality. | FLEE? | |_______| _______________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ STATS [STTS] _______________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Just a short overview on what stats control what.

CHARLES BARKLEY ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Sir Charles...The Round Mound of Rebound...he's been called many things, and revered by many...but those days are past. It's slowly revealed why his post- -apocalyptic life is bitter and why the future is so empty and bleak. He's pretty well-rounded and has a high Attack stat. LV00 - Doubleteam -------> Multi-attack phys damage on one target [10BP] LV02 - Showboat Jam -----> Gain random stat bonus; damages target [20BP] LV04 - Vampslam ---------> Damages enemy, healing Barkley by amnt [10BP] LV?? - Holy Jam ---------> Dikembe Mutumbo's forbidden jam......! [35BP] LV?? - Ghost Muscle -----> Raises Barkley's Power and Brain stats [05BP] BALTHIOS ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The octaroon great grandson of the famous b-baller Lebron James, Balthios is one of the last living zaubermancers. He, Charles, and Hoopz are close, and he is very bright. His gray hair is freaky but no one really mentions this fact. His Guard stat sucks for quite a long time despite equipment-boosting, but this changes later. His stat-down skills are great. LV00 - Fire Zauber ------> Lowers enemy's Attack [5BP] LV00 - Ice Zauber -------> Heavy damage to enemy [20BP] LV03 - Water Zauber -----> Inflicts Diabetes & Glaucoma on enemies [10BP] LV03 - Wind Zauber ------> 2-hit damage on all enemies [25BP] LV04 - Thunder Zauber ---> Damages one foe repeatedly [25BP] LV05 - Muscle Zauber ----> Lowers multiple stats on single enemy [20BP] LV?? - Snail Zauber -----> May heavily decrease speed on one foe [10BP] CYBERDWARF ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Once a proud dwarf, after an accident he had no choice but to get skin grafts made of b-ball leather. Mostly hideous but still kind-hearted, he agrees to help Barkley on his quest. Oh, and he likes applebottoms. LV00 - Insulin Shot -----> Heals + immunizes target of Diabetes [05BP] LV00 - Dwarven Touch ----> Raises random stat + Heals ally VP 50% [10BP] LV00 - Dwarf Knowledge --> Fully heals ally's VP, refreshes status [15BP] LV05 - Glaucoma Prayer --> Heals Glaucoma on all allies [05BP] LV06 - Dwarf Caress -----> Restores 66% of max VP on all allies [20BP] LV?? - Chaff Grenade ----> Phys damage to enemy + Lowers Guard [10BP] HOOPZ ¯¯¯¯¯ Son of Sir Charles, and a b-ball up-and-comer, Hoopz is how all good kids should act: respect their parents, not be blabbermouths, and be helpful. The young master has little VP in battle but is very fast, which makes up for it. Did I mention he's....A ZOMBIE? No? Good, because he's not. LV00 - Gun's Slay -------> Physical damage on enemy [10BP] LV00 - Bulletdance ------> Physical damage on enemies [10BP] LV10 - Status Shot ------> Inflicts Diabetes on enemy [10BP] LV06 - TrickGun Assault -> Heavy phys-damg to enemy [30BP] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 01) BARKLEY'S APARTMENT [WK01] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ | _ | After what may be the most dramatic acting in video game | |_| Ecto Cooler | history, the scene is set for Barkley to go out and get |_________________| his medicine. Search the oven for a [ECTO COOLER] and put on your overcoat (figuratively) to leave. Talk with Gus in the foyer to learn the harrowing past about Inspector Jordan. And for no real reason, here's the default everything!

I'd | Volleyball | + 08 | | | | recommend either the W. | Wrist Brace | + 06 | | | | Brace or Backwards Cap, |__________________|_______|_______|_______|_______| myself... Down the (left) block is the Church of Clispaeth. The priest here is...Larry Bird, ex-star of the Boston Celtics. But those days're past now... Reminisce for awhile, give the kid standing outside the church 1 neo-shekel, and head back towards the apartment. Save first and head on up. [NOTE: If you do not give the kid a neo-shekel, it adds a "Deathtemple Point" to an invisible counter.] After a quick snooze, Jordan will enter and arrest Sir Charles for allegedly causing the latest Chaos Dunk. In order to escape their clutches, press the combination of keys/direction to get out of the apartment. Once on the foyer, quickly press the next one to avoid falling off the balcony and being caught. Barkley is captured after failing the input twice; don't worry, this can be redone from the start should this happen! There's a similar scenario on the NNY street involving the arrow keys. In the downtown area, some soldiers will catch Charles. A kid will run over and steal a "vintage" weapon from the captain, allowing Charles to escape a bit easier into the side-alley. A shadowy figure will subsequently help Charles escape... _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 03) B-BALL CATACOMBS [WK03] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯| ENEMIES ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯ | _ _ | | | |_| Battlers Tome 1 |_| Jacket | - Slam Spectre | | |_| Battlers Tome 2 |_| Chicken Dew | - Ball Brain | | |_| Battlers Tome 3 |_| Chicken Dew | - Zomballer | | |_| BBall Shard |_| Volleyball |________________| | |_| BBall Tear |_| Jersey _ | | |_| BBall Tear |_| Bapes |_| Gatorade Gum | | |_| BBall Tear |_| Ecto Cooler |_| B-Ball | | |_| BBall Tear |_| Ecto Cooler | |__________________________________________________________| The person will reveal himself as the Ultimate Hellbane, and joins the party after convincing Charles that he's a good guy.

At the 4-way junction, head south and continue straight west until finding an altar where a replica of the Space Jam ball is enshrined, along with the tomb of Muggsy Bogues and Patrick Ewing. Inspect the altar for a [BBALL SHARD] and both sarcophagi for a [BBALL TEAR]. R.I.P. you guys. ;__; Exit south until Hellbane warns about unstable footing. Walk (don't run) over the mesh floor to avoid a long fall to yer death. Continue along to the pool that commemorates greats like Shaq and Hakeem, and grab the [JACKET] and the [VOLLEYBALL] out of the odd-looking wall compartments. Continue along to find a healing b-ball statue. Further along is a...boss! OMG BOSS: Dread Ref HP: ~300 EXP: 104 NS: 90 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This boss is actually quite easy, as long as y'healed beforehand. Use Forward Jumper [or any other easy-to-use high-damage skill] and Hellbane's best skill to deal a lot of damage from the get-go. The "Knife Boot Face Gash" skill can inflict much pain on its target and it hits multiple times (but misses a lot of the strikes). Should you be rather unlucky, however, get those Ecto Cooler straws out and drink up! --- Heal up again and continue north to a screen with another save. A vending machine is nearby if you need to buy items, and there are some new stuff to get as well! Steal the [BAPES] from the wall hole and hang a left after y' save. A wall hole here has a [JACKET] -- which should be put on Hellbane at once -- and two southward-leading tunnels. Go down the left one to find a... TILE SHIFTING PUZZLE? OH MY GOD I HATE THESE! However, if you can succeed at doing it (all but upper-left corner must be correct), a [GATORADE GUM]'s put in your inventory! GZ, one of the creators, has supplied the tile solution!: R > R > D > L > L > D > R > R > U > U > L > L Obviously, the letters stand for Right, Down, Left, and Up... I hope... The right-hand tunnel parallel to the tile puzzle contains a [CHICKEN DEW] duo, so make sure to snatch those puppies up! Finally, return to the vending machine area and go north to Lebron James' tomb. Before fading, he beseeches them to find the "Cyberdwarf," whatever that is. Another boss fight! BOSS: BBall Monster HP: ~1000 EXP: 584 NS: 230 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ It's "BBall Twister" attack does medium-damage (~60), and it can't be hit if it uses "Mega Jump". If this happens, have Barkley defend for his 66% guard bonus and have Balthios pick his counterattack command, so he can avenge the ~150-dmg strike and cut this freak down to size. Barkley should use his Jam abilities (and then Forward Jumper, etc.), while Balthios takes care of the fiend with Fire/Ice Zauber, which should help reduce the amount of dmg he'll incur from its powerful physical attacks. "Juke Spinner" has 9 random hits to the party, and can be annoying if Monster's power hasn't been decreased! A [B-BALL] is collected after the foe's defeat. End of dungeon! _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 04) NEO NEW YORK SEWERS / CESSPOOL X [WK04] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯| ENEMIES ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯ | _ _ | | | |_| Ice Zauber |_| Chicken Dew | Whistle | | |_| Poem |_| Snail Zauber | Ball Droid | |__________________________________________________________| Ball Spider | ___ | |________________| | 2 | To Cesspool X | |_ | / [3,4] | Grab the [ICE ZAUBER] chest and head _|¯| ___|¯| | north to the vending machine/savepoint | _| | ___| | reststop.

Snatch the [CHICKEN DEW] and return to the fork, taking an easy trek. At the very end, the entrance to Cesspool X, where some freakish mutants (by choice) live. __________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ CESSPOOL X __________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ After gaining entrance past "Eric Barber" the Vulturefreak, talk with the snail to gain the [POEM] for his kitsune lover. After opening it, all allies present determine the poem completely sucks, and the option to rewrite it is given -- choose to do so. Talk with the kitsune (fox) -- AFTER SAVING -- to learn about her likes and dislikes. She likes...animals, and that's about all the useful information y'get. Balthios will rewrite the crappy prose and will need some input. If you want a smashing success of a poem, answer: - enjoys hunting small prey - does not mind animal feces much - and her friends in Cesspool X The default reward if you don't rewrite the poem is 600 NS; if she hates the poem, it's 400 NS. If you pick all of Vince's stupid suggestions, where he's surprisingly CORRECT even though there's no flow, the two lovebirds leave and leave behind a [SNAIL ZAUBER]. This is a skill for Balthios, true, but there is a weapon of the same name left behind! Equip it for a great Guard boost! As for new items, the following can be bought. Everyone should have a nice time upgrading here, particularly Balthios and Vincebot who get slammed in battle defense-wise. [Armor shop is located near where Kitsune was standing]. The item shop is the northeastern most shop in town, and the 'norm' inn is by the NPC Chip. __________________ _______ _______ _______ _______ | BLING | POWER | GUARD | SPEED | BRAIN | |¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯| Vince and Barkley should | Ace Bandage | | + 07 | | | get Spiked B-Balls and | Sweatband | | | | + 06 | a Ref Uniform, while our | Dwarf Pride | + 15 | | | | Hellbane gets a Trench- | Thunder Zauber | + 20 | | | | coat and Time Zauber. | Time Zauber | + 32 | | | | The Dwarf Warhammer will | Spiked B-Ball | + 38 | | | | be bought very soon, and | Referee Uniform | + 14 | | | | makes Cyberdwarf's combo | Trenchcoat | + 17 | | | | attacks feel like a | Dwarf Warhammer | + 33 | | | | thousand-ton truck is |__________________|_______|_______|_______|_______| running over enemies...!

I highly suggest doing this as it nets a great item in return. Skip the section if you just wanna get on with the game. --- Once y'head north of Cesspool X, hang a left to find a ladder leading up to the church. Simple as. _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 05) DIKEMBE MUTUMBO'S TOMB [WK05] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ |¯¯¯¯¯| This is a mini-dungeon that leads up to the b-baller's |BOSS!| shrine. You can completely ignore the right path of Pippin's |_ 2 _| sarcophagus; it's a maze that leads nowhere. | | _____|¯|____ Instead, take a left and navigate to where Dikembe's | | entrails are stored. A wall niche contains a [CHICKEN DEW] |_|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|_| duo.

Mutumbo HP: ~1600 EXP: 004 NS: 025 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Hey, he looks like Kobe Bryant! Haha... He's basically the same fighter, but with souped-up power. Balla Dash is still present, so if you want an easier time, use Snail Zauber (Speed -12!?) & Fire Zauber to debuff him. Barkley can use his jamz and slamz while Eye Laser and the punch/kick combos round out the other turns. Also watch out for the "beatdown" attack where Dikembe puts some merciless hurt on a single target w/ a multistrike tech. He can recover about 600 HP after a time, by using "Devolve" however (which prevents him from attacking for a while), so this may take longer than normal. --- A [FEMUR] is received after winning. Barkley will also learn "Holy Dunk" as a way to carry on the soul brother's legacy. But what do we do with this bone? Back in Cesspool X, the dog will speak OOC (out of character) and trade his [NIKES] for the morsel. With +14 SPD, this will greatly help slowpokes like Cyberdwarf in battle, yo. Exit north of Cesspool X to re-enter the sewers. _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 06) NEO NEW YORK / SEWERS [WK06] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯ | _ | Enter the church and there will be a surprise battle! | |_| Turkey Feather | | |_| Facemask | | |_| Chicken Dew | BOSS: Michael Jordan HP: ~850 |____________________| BOSS: Vinceborg 2050 HP: ~2000 EXP: 1653 NS: 466 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Use Snail/Fire Zauber at the start to give a slight edge. Jordan can "Defy Clispaeth" to raise his guard somewhat, but his HP isn't that high, so it's a wasted turn, pretty much. Vinceborg, expectedly, has a laser shot that can do multiple damage to everyone (Jordan has Hurricane Shot which works to the same effect). Our cyborg can also use "Recharge" to heal 239 damage, though, so watch out. --- Afterwards, Cyberdwarf suggests finding clues in the old Spalding Building. _______________________________________________________ | Hoopz joins the team ARM : ZX Zaubertech1 VP : 308 GUARD: 45 | at this time, too. BODY : Rags BP : 28 BRAIN: 42 | A Referee Uniform & BLING: Bapes SPEED: 73 POWER: 64 | Ace Bandage will do _______________________________________________________| the kid good. After stocking up on items, try to exit town and a [TURKEY FEATHER] present will be given by one of the freaky denizens. Save, head north, hang a right. --- This next area is sorta confusing, but it's just one screen. A [FACEMASK] chest is at the top of the screen (from entrance: west to 1st north path). Put it on Balthios so his Guard stat isn't a complete pile. In the SW corner of the room is a ladder leading up to a [CHICKEN DEW]. A note from Allard is on the floor; y'may wanna read it... In the SE corner, the ladder leads down to some pushers who y'can get items (already available) from. A guy charges $5000 to go down a ladder here...if you can't afford it, it doesn't matter. The real way to find the Spalding Building is through the DOOR in the above room, which leads to more ladders. It spits everyone out near a save pump & vendor, and from there... ...huh, it's a clinic? Lame. Talk with the suits here to learn that Dr. Allard does "full conversions" for idiots who want to look like animals and animated goofballs. There are three options to do here: #1 - Pay toll If you're stupid, this is the path you take. Why spend $5000 when you don't have to? I mean, c'mon... >__> #2 - Rough up the guards "Bust into his office" and fight the two guards; it's the exact same way as the #3 path after that. Alternately, you can go to the guards at the barred gate and beat up that Bodyguard. The single guard downstairs is a bit harder apparently, so inflict Diabetes to make up for the times when attacks miss. #3 - Find Rufus First, y'must have read the note in the SW corner to learn about "Rufus". Talk to a suit in front of Allard's office door to learn Rufus has been put on tunnel duty. Anyway, Rufus is the suit in the downstairs tunnel right outside the savepoint. Return to the office guards, speak Rufus's password, and enter inside. The bodyguard will attack (HP: ~600), but he ain't nothin' special. [650 EXP, 4NS]. The doc is up next. BOSS: Dr Allard HP: ~1200 EXP: 2719 NS: 472 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ His "Faulty Plague Vaccine" can inflict brain-down, Handicapable, and apx 130 damage. "Heart Stab" inflicts heavy damage on one target, while "Dirty Needles" is a pretty crappy multi-attack on everyone. Use Forward Jumper, Fire [etc.] Zauber, and Dwarf's punches to inflict the most dmg on this scoundrel. No matter which way is taken, y'have to enter the SE ladder downstairs. Our friend Balthios says to prepare before going; this is because once y'go down there isn't an easy way back. PREPARE FIRST!

To get to the Spalding Building, the Ghost Dad must be slain! Next door to her house is Wildman's, and if Barkley does not apologize, it adds a "Deathtemple Point". Hang a left to find the downtown area, where a savepoint is. A husk of a building contains an inn (35NS) and the other has some denizens. One asks Barkley to retreive a 'F.I.N.A.L. G.U.N.' inside the Spalding Building for him. If you want to make some cash, you can roll the "Bones" with a gambler bum in this building.

BOSS: Ghost Dad HP: ~3000 EXP: 3923 NS: 468 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Oh no, Dr. Huxtable is raining terror on the city! Its "Ectoplasm" attack is quite powerful (~300dmg), so kick out the powerful jams (Holy Dunk for one) to counteract it. Have Hoopz act as item healer, and use Muscle Zauber to counterattact its +15 ATK raise it gets on occasion. "Spook" can inflict some damage and Glaucoma, so use Glaucoma Prayer/Tobacco to alleviate. Fog Breath can inflict speed-down on everyone, too, which is not a good situation to be in! Dwarf Caress is there for a reason -- use it. This will be a long battle no matter how y'play, so have ample items to get through this sucker. Perhaps the worst move is "Ghostly Curse," which randomly inflicts multiple statuses on each character. --- The fog lifts after Ghost Dad's demise. Afterward, sleep at the inn for no cost and Barkley will learn "Ghost Muscle" from the dearly departed! Exit west out of town and follow the wastegrounds' path to the Spalding Building. A suit outside will also want Barkley to claim the F.I.N.A.L. G.U.N. for his company Square-Enix-Goya, and will pay $2500 if the obligation is met. _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 08) SPALDING FACTORY [WK08] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ _____ ENEMIES: ____ | 3 | | 6 | 01 Dwarfbane ¯| |¯ - Mutant Baller |_|¯¯ 02 BBall Juice |¯|¯|¯| - Slam Phantom | |¯¯| 03 Red Keycard | | BOSS - Mech Gatorade | | 04 Time Zauber |¯ ¯| ___ / | | | 05 F.I.N.A.L.

At the fork, the only way to proceed is up the left door. Barkley suggests going through the cubicles to search for the keycard. Look for wastebaskets with a sparkly thing to find a [DWARFBANE] and [BBALL JUICE] item. The last room has a [RED KEYCARD] in plain site, luckily. Steal it, return to the savepoint, and active the red lift -- this opens the right-hand door up the hall. More cubicles! A [TIME ZAUBER] is in the first one's wastebasket, although it can't hold a candle to the Snail Zauber. Keep going east, watch the scene where Barkley "feels like something happened in a room," and enter the next verticle passage of cubicles. The sparkle-less wastebasket in this first area has the [F.I.N.A.L. G.U.N.] that the two collectors were looking for. Hoopz will be a murdering tool with this equipped, so do so. At the very northern room here is the [BLUE KEYCARD]. Return to the lifts and activate the blue lift, opening the middle door up the hall. ___________________________________________________________________________ | | | At this point, you can get your reward for the FINAL GUN.

BOSS: Scott Creelman HP: ~1200 EXP: 3923 NS: 468 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ "Low Blow" does wussy damage to a single target, but "Kamikaze Jam" is liable to kill the person it hits. Make sure to have some Steroids/Chicken Dew on- hand. "Illusion Shot" is random-target, multiattack damage (~60per). Use Barkley's best jams, Flame Zauber, Rapid Fire, and Cyberdwarf's punches to inflict most damage. Make sure Dwarf Caress can be used if needed, though. "Glory of BBall" will heal all Scott's status ailments and about 571 HP, too, which can needlessly prolong the battle...watch out. [You may want to inflict Diabetes/Glaucoma with Water Zauber on this end]. --- The [PROTOTYPE B-BALL] is received for the hard work. Some things go awry, though, and back in town, it's time to continue (Hoopz isn't in the party for awhile). Exit south through the once-fog-ridden path to the Sunbaked Parking Lot.

It's free to ride; just tell the captain. For no real reason, a boss shows up from belowdecks and it's time to fight. Balthios won't be participating, however. BOSS: Duergar HP: ~1200 EXP: 3923 NS: 468 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ "Lv2 Melf's Acid Arrow" can inflict Diabetes & damage, so make sure to use Insulin Shot to prevent it from happening again. "Gemstorm" can inflict 'bout 200 to all allies, but as long as you use Dwarf Caress every 2-3 turns, it's nothing to worry about. "Gold Encrusted Pick Toss" follows a similar strat, but misses and does randomized-target damage. Barkley should stick with Ghost Muscle and Pass/Forward Jumper (after using his Jams, natch), while Cyber should be the main healer. Keep an eye on his BP so y'don't get caught 'tween a rock and a hard place. --- After, it's learned Balthios has a certain weird thing about Columbus Day. Haha... __________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ PATH: Underground Railroad __________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The subway terminal is north of the sunbaked parking lot. Tell Harriet Tubman yer getting on for a ride and the trip is underway. After awhile, check the rear cars for a bugbear...but it's really the B-Ball Removal Department in an infiltration mission! It's another timed input series: - Cancel -> Action - Up -----> Left - Up -----> Down ---> Up The sergeant will activate a bomb before dying, however. To escape the blast the end car needs to be uncoupled from the rest of the train. Cyberdwarf says the rightmost lever is the correct one to detach. When asked if the lever is correct, see if Cyberdwarf is standing all the way to the right; if so, give the go-ahead to pull it. And...that's it! _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 10) LIBERTY ISLAND [WK10] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This next part is reminiscent of point-and-click adventures. Do thusly: - Take [TRIANGLE ROCK] from the NE part of the rubble (has a sparkle on it) - Visit Statue of Liberty in the north; try unsuccessfully to gain entrance - In rubble area, NW house will be accessible A man here named Rutherford says Yelmirb can cure the diabetes. The Palladium Orb Scepter is needed to gain access to his quarters, however. The cave south of the rubble, blocked by a boulder, contains that very item. Some fool named Jenkins is protecting it... - Take Pipe (unsuccessfully) - Ask Rutherford if the [PIPE] can be taken - Use Pipe & Triangle Rock on the boulder This allows entrance into Jenkins' cave. He says that Rutherford is trying to kill Yelmirb and he'll give the [ORB SCEPTER] over if Barkley slams him. Say y'will and return to "Raffleson's" house. Everyone will accidentally be trapped in there, but the poison sugar gas mechanism stalls. - Examine the dresser and take a [ZAUBERMANCER GARB]. - Examine clock to see time is 12:32 - Examine work table and take [SCREWDRIVER] - Use desk (jimmies the lock) and get a [DESK KEY] - Examine bookcase to see that three books (#1-3) can't be removed - Pull books in this order: 1, 2, 3, 2. This opens a hidden bookshelf door. - Use Desk Key on the secret door. Everyone should be able to leave at this point. - Examine Cultist (Mack) at Statue of Liberty to learn some information - Talk with Mack about Das Fructose Ungeheuer by the stone slab (rubble area) Mack says the well has the entrance to where the Immaculate Rod lies. The going-away present of [750 NEO-SHEKELS] is also given! The [SUGAR COUNTER] will keep track of the sugar rates down there; more than 4.5 granules per square inch is fatal... Before leaving, find Jenkins' corpse and Cyberdwarf learns "Chaff Grenade"! _________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ BENEATH LIBERTY ISLAND... _________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Sugar Counter will appear in the lower-left corner -- if it gets to 4.5, it's game over. The way to proceed through here is to WALK, not dash, because the player can react to the ticker easier (not to mention it stays virtually in the same spot when walking). Running'll just spontaneously sugarify you. Also, try to stay on the dirty path away from the "sugardrifts," for good measure. Luckily, the path is rather straightforward. A small cave-in will send a gust of sugar flying down the path; back up and let its flurry pass. Further on, a shadow will move across a bridge. Follow it until a white soda can (?) figure runs away. This time, take the long u-shaped path around instead of the quick way (unless you wanna dieeeeee). Keep going west until a sudden vision of sugar (LOL?) happens. A sugarfied body lies along the path here, but isn't that important. Further down, the Diabeastie is waiting... BOSS: Reginald HP: ~1200 EXP: 3598 NS: 581 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ He ain't the diabeastie, but he's here...so let's kill 'im! "Greater Earth Spire" does about 300 to one target, and he can eat a hamburger to recover 999 BP! "Summon Bee Swarm" does about 130/per hit on a target too. Reginald cannot be heavily damaged until the red aura around him dissipates; even then magical-type abilities and skills do pitiful damage. Stick with physical hits and strikes, while Cyberdwarf plays the role of item healer. "Chromatic Orb Lv119" inflicts multiple stat-down effects with a small 100-dmg tag; beware its use in the early going! --- The [IMMACULATE ROD] is received afterwards. However, upon approaching the Statue of Liberty, the real culprit appears... BOSS: Diabeastie HP: ~1500 EXP: 4378 NS: 658 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ "Sugar Storm" is used to inflict all allies with Diabetes; use Insulin Shot to combat it. Inflict Glaucoma with Water Zauber, and use Muscle Zauber to neutralize some of its all-around effectiveness. "Glomp" is single-target damage (~200), while its got a three-strike physical attack (~100/per) that someone can suffer through. "Spontaneous Sugarfication" does about 5000dmg to a target, which is massive overkill -- still kinda funny. Revive that guy and continue with the normal slaughtering. --- It drops a [POLESHAFT] after it dissolves (pun?). A right nice fellow named Octavius Steambrast appears at this time, wanting the newly-acquired item. Tell him no, save/heal, and enter the statue. At the end, "Yelmirb" agrees to cure Hoopz' type 2 diabetes...but SUDDENLY OMG: BOSS: Vinceborg 2050 HP: ~2000 EXP: 4932 NS: 896 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Our good 'friend' is back. Use Muscle Zauber to reduce his effectiveness, for one...yeah, that's a good start. Vince now knows "Proximity Pass," which puts two mines on two different targets for about 150dmg. "Binary Shower" ups his stats somewhat, which should break even if you decreased a bunch. Oh, and he can heals 400HP & BP this time! Feeding Barkley BP+ items now and then, he just used Doubleteam the whole fight, while Cyberdwarf used Dwarf Caress and his powerful punches when needed. "Short Circuit" just downs a few stats and a waste of a turn, pretty much. He doesn't heal as much as some earlier foes though. --- Back in the subway station, Juwanna Man gives Barkley a [DIMENSION WHISTLE]. She says manufactured jamicite might be in Cuchulainn's Tomb, and the rails can take 'em there. Before talking to the conductor and heading there, make sure to re-equip Hoopz with all his good stuff. _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 11) BARREN OUTSKIRTS [WK11] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ CUCHULAINN'S TOMB | _|¯|_ |SAVE | | ___| This is a very small and uneventful area.

Clearly favoring the Deurgars, Jamal Bloodguzzle will reward Barkley for helping his race with a [SHREKMONO] & [SHREKMONO PICCIE]!

However, if you decide to be evil and favor the genies the whole way through (by selecting the LAST listed option each time), a [GENIE LAMP]!

WEALTH -----> $5000+ KNOWLEDGE --> Information about the Deathtemple --- Now, it's well and good to favor one side...but what happens if Barkley makes it a true compromise, being the deurgars are slightly favored on four options (Choice 2) and the genies are slightly favored on the other 4 (Choice 3)? It benefits nobody and there ain't any prizes! The best path, prize-wise, is the one that favors the deurgars, it seems.

It ENTER has to be done in a certain order, however, being: Blue -> Green -> Purple -> Red. From the entrance, the maze splits into two alongside the main corridor. The green switch is the nearest "C" on the left side; the Blue is the NE crystal on the right side. Purple is the other right-side one, and Red is the NW on the left side. There is a [BLOODY ZAUBER] and [1000 NS] chest strewn along the maze, also. If done in the right order, the locked gate will lift; if the order is screwed up, the "click" of an unlocking object is heard, which tells the player the switch timed out!

The numbers are:  Thus, light up , , , and . Zing! --- Everyone meets up and enters the northernmost room. The [HELL B-BALL] gets equipped on Barkley, who goes off alone to rescue someone or something in the next corridor. The Shimmerglobe then challenges Barkley with the.... BOSS: Ball Spider HP: ~500 EXP: 238 NS: 86 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Huh...? This crappy enemy from dungeons past? It uses "Parkinsons Chomp" and and a spinning damage move, but this stuff should barely do 100. Use a great Jam ability to finish this wussbag off. --- Afterwards, the final verboten jam "Double Dribble" is gained, as well as the [H/S BALL]. It's got lower attack (-10) than the Hell B-ball, but allows Sir Charles to dribble too balls at once...i.e., two attacks. _____________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ BARREN OUTSKIRTS [II] _____________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ To leave, simply head to the southernmost region of the Barren Outskirts (to where the item-seller is) and leave through the fence. However, in that last area there is a secret boss in the SE corner by the barrels. Press the action button around there to hear a weird "Scooby Doo ghost noise" BOSS: Ghastly Darklord HP: ~2000 EXP: 5255 NS: 1064 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ "Blackout" will kill a randomized character, and "Mystic Eye Beam of Doom" is ripped straight from Vincebot's repertoire, damaging randomized targets for about 80/per. "Tongue Lash" inflicts multiple statuses on one character, so heal that crap away (or use Tobacco). "Head Bash" is a single-target dmg attack...yawn! Basically, to do the most damage, equip the H/S Ball, use the ever-useful Ghost Muscle, and Doubleteam this guy repeatedly. Muscle Zauber helps impair his stats a bit. Hoopz should use Gun Slay; barring that, he should relegate himself to item-healer (make sure to set his 100% dodge attack in place though). "Soul Consume" can heal the boss for about 380, so make sure to keep Doubleteam goin'! [PS: Darklord is immune to Glaucoma and Diabetes.] A [GOLDEN POTATO] can be recovered from where the boss died...get it! Using the thing will summon Hiratio to instantly kill any enemy in the game. It's consumable, though, so choose the timing wisely. --- Now, it's time to leave town through the SW exit...! The world map is at last revealed! Unfortunately it's a very easy, straightforward path to where Cyberdwarf's crashed ship is. Prepare before going and it's blast-off... _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 14) NECRON 5 [WK14] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The pump will ask Hoopz some questions before saving is possible. This line of interesting "gaijin" queries only happens once, so don't screw up. Answer the following: __________________________________ So what do you win? Nothing -- there are | no library cards that the pump says were • Vidcon | supposed to have been collected.

The derelict basketball __________________________________| court is the destination... Barkley will fight the next battle by his lonesome... BOSS: Jordan HP: ~2400 EXP: 1534 NS: 389 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Make sure the H/S Ball is equipped before coming into this battle. If you did the Chup Mines sidequest and got the Shrekmono, most of Jordan's attacks will be doing a lot less damage than one'd expect. Use Ghost Muscle + Doubleteam to expedite, and heal when needed (watch out for "H-H-Head Shot," which may be the best move ever invented...just see it). Still got "Defy Clispaeth," although it won't do him much good here. Sucka MCs must diyeeeeeee~! --- Afterwards, if you try to leave, Cyberdwarf suggests using the Dimension Whistle Juwanna gave to the party. _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 15) B-BALL DIMENSION [OPTIONAL] [WK15] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Carmelo Anthony, the hoopster by the pump, will teleport everyone outta this place, but be warned: there's no coming back. So, let's try the festivities! Remember: this entire place is optional! _____________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ B-BALL DATING SERVICE _____________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ No, not Charles! Cyberdwarf is the one who hasn't felt a woman's touch in a long time. He only likes "applebottoms," apparently. The WNBA's Ivory Latta will be the only suitable match, apparently. They go into the backroom to get to know each other better. Choose the following replies in order to, uh, win this...uh, thing. • That's a pretty name, Ivory • What are some of your interests? • What books do you like? • I also read romance novels. • I think you doubt yourself. • I don't think so. • That...that was amazing. Latta should bring C'dwarf out into the fresh air (does that exist here??) • It's...beautiful. • What do you usually think about? They should kiss and Cyberdwarf should get the [TUPPERWARE ARMOR] and...also, an [IVORY'S BROMIDE]. _____________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ B-BALL FARM SIMULATOR _____________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ What may be the funniest take on Chocobo breeding, Barkley can raise his own pet b-ball. Barkley's old coach will help describe what each command does (feeding, watering, playing with b-ball). As far as I know, there's no real outcome to this besides wasting lots of money and getting the same note about "anything else?" :p _____________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ THE B-BALL TOURNAMENT _____________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Talk with Meadowlark Lemon to learn there's a tournament around, and the winner gets a 1-of-a-kind prize! The reigning champ is Kevin Garnett and has never once been defeated. The arena's right near the pump, too. Register for the showdowns and talk with Garnett a little. Then, it's off to a Hellblazen Battlesquare for the matches! BOSS: Hell Orc HP: ~100 EXP: 338 NS: 68 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Oh, so Shrek's here? Any move can kill this sucker...his HP is horrible. BOSS: Doomhell Skele HP: ~200 EXP: 351 NS: 71 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Again, easy as pie. BOSS: Blood Ghoul HP: ~200 EXP: 351 NS: 71 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The H/S Ball eviscerates chaff like this. BOSS: Delmon Master HP: ~1000 EXP: 372 NS: 75 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Still pretty easy, but a step up in difficulty...slightly. Even at only Lv12 Barkley will probably three times faster than this sucker. In fact, he will suicide himself with "Flamesplosion," probably in awe of Barkley's talented abilities. Make sure to heal your HP/BP before moving onto the champion... BOSS: Kevin Garnett HP: ~1500 EXP: 355 NS: 71 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ "Dipsy Doo Dunkaroo" can inflict damage and Guard -25 (!?), which should not matter too much -- Barkley is clearly faster and can sink his teeth in, even with simple Forward Jumpers. Watch out for the "Dojo Kick" which can do 200+, if it even comes to that. The final prize? A [MITHRIL JERSEY]! _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 16) NECRON 5 [WK16] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ After leaving the B-Ball Dimension, it's back to the desolate court again... Head north from the arrival point and when you meet the "shadowy figure," the choice to join or refuse him comes up. Make sure to refuse or it's game over! BOSS: Shadow Barkley HP: ~2000 EXP: 4 NS: 4 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Haha, by far one of the funniest boss sprites...eat it, FF7! "Plague Needle" will inflict Diabetes/Glaucoma on everyone. "Verboten Jam" will probably kill whoever it hits, even if you use multiple Muscle Zaubers. "Moon Regeneration" will refill HP (~560) and heal ailments; just recast 'em when this happens. "Shadow Lightning" deals about 100dmg/per hit in a scattershot fashion. "Dark Vortex" does about 200 to a single target... Use Insulin Shot when the time arises, and use Water Zauber to inflict both Glaucoma & Diabetes on the boss. Cyberdwarf should keep his BP up and Dwarf Caress when the hurt is put on. Sir Charles should just use Doubleteam every turn, while someone feeds him items. I mean, this is the last battle -- why save the inventory? Make sure to Ghost Muscle beforehand, and keep hitting it with Diabetes for an extra 147 or so damage per turn. But that ain't all! BOSS: T-Rex Barkley HP: ~3000 EXP: 4 NS: 4 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Haha... "Chomp Chomp Yum Yum" drains as much damage as it inflicts, usually about 400. "Dinosaur Spit" heavily lowers the four main stats on a single character. "Doomfire Death" inflicts 9999dmg on two random targets...! "Tail Whip" hits thrice on one target and "Flamehell" does about 250-300 to all targets. This battle is most annoying because of the draining skill. Barkley should once again Ghost Muscle + Doubleteam, while Muscle/Flame Zauber is put into effect (Zeta Slash may help as well for reducing its turn rate). Cyberdwarf will find much use for his "Caress" ability, and young master Hoopz is mostly relegated to item-thrower due to his great speed. Hoopz should also use his 100% Dodge ability, because this is a free evade that's stored for the next time he's attacked (even if he does things inbetween!). Snail Zauber will be of use, too, if you have it. _________ _______ _______ _ ______ _ \__ __/|\ /|( ____ \ ( ____ \( ( /|( __ \ ( ) ) ( | ) ( || ( \/ | ( \/| \ ( || ( \ )| | | | | (___) || (__ | (__ | \ | || | ) || | | | | ___ || __) | __) | (\ \) || | | || | | | | ( ) || ( | ( | | \ || | ) |(_) | | | ) ( || (____/\ | (____/\| ) \ || (__/ ) _ )_( |/ \|(_______/ (_______/|/ )_)(______/ (_) Enjoy the ending and Victorian Steampunk Mode! _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 17) APPENDICES [WK17] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This section looks like crap 'cause I can't really fit the tables around like I want to.

[A] - Talk to the chatterbox gas pumps around the towns & dungeons [Q] - I can't figure out how to do this (Attack) skill right! [A] - Press left/right to see the base accuracy and method for performing it. [Q] - Hey, Cyberdwarf's finishers are raising the target's stats!!!! [A] - The version of the game yer playing is outdated. That has been fixed. :p [Q] - How do I get all the Library cards / Cuchulainn's Key? [A] - You don't. They don't exist. This is supposed to be an in-joke, I think, and has been debunked by the creators on a few sites. [Q] - In Necron 5, how do I open the door that needs the Cuchulainn's Tomb Key? [A] - The key doesn't seem to exist -- another joke at our expense. =( [Q] - What is Victorian Steampunk mode? [A] - The game takes a funny twist, with some characters being renamed, their portraits being changed (Hoopz now looks like a neathdrathal, for one), and there's a generally more "proper" feel to the people. The Ultimate Hellbane becomes "Supreme Cogblight," and there's other britishisms to find, haha. Nothing carries over (item, money, etc.) though. [Q] - I heard there's a "Hell" area in this game? [A] - Yes, there is...the Deathtemple. To gain access to it, y'must be a complete jerkwad all throughout the game. The noted instances are the following: - In Neo New York City, do not give kid by church any neo-shekels - In NNYC Sewers, do not give slacker outside of Allard's office any $$$ - In Proto NNYC, do not apologize to Wildman (next door to Juwanna Mann) - Do not give the Poleshaft to Octavius Steambrast on Liberty Island - In the B-Ball Dimension, do not spot Dick Vitale any money Being nice to any of these five people prevents access to Hell. To get to that hot location, complete the requirements and die; instead of going to the game over screen, Barkley winds up there. [Q] - Who is Hiratio? [A] - He's in a series of potato games at gzstorm.com _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 19) UPDATES & THANKS [WK19] _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 02-01-08 ------------------------+ Started this rollercoaster ride 02-04-08 ------------------------+ Added to GameFAQs __________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ITEMS TO HELP WITH __________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ - List of requirements to get into "Hell" - Any special skills I missed because I didn't power-level [etc.] __________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ MUCH OBLIGED TO... __________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ - Sir Charles himself - The people who put their time into making this game, or helped in creation.

Note: Given the section on Legality at the end of the walkthrough, I'd like to point out that I did actually get in touch with the author of this FAQ to check that he was ok with me putting it here, and he is. Barkley himself was unavailable, but his secretary said that he'd get back to me when he could. Terry 14:55, 12 February 2008 (GMT)
