Some gameplay-related problems and glitches pertaining to Pokemon Gen 1 (Red/Blue/Yellow)

Pokemon Gen 1 was a very fun game, and the game that was the cornerstone of so many people's childhoods, including my own. But, let's face it, it had a LOT of flaws that needed ironing out. Here is a partial list of the gameplay-related glitches, programming errors and overall annoyances that run rampant in the first generation of the Pokemon series. This will be mostly in picture form, though if I see any errors on it, I will correct them in text at the first possible opportunity.

Little correction on Swift... Even Swift is capable of missing 1/256 of the time in Gen 1, meaning EVERY attack in the game without exception is capable of missing.
I think that's pretty much it for corrections at this point in time.

Lennus II: Apostles of The Seals Item Information and Monster Drops (in progress)

Here are a list of equipment items and their various effects when used in battle. All items that cast spells appear to use the lowest level version. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but here are the effects of some of the more notable ones:


Life Corsage: Heals 300 HP for entire party
Power Wrist: Casts AttackUp on the user
Power Shield: Casts DefUp on the user

Showy Tiara: Casts Barrier
Red Ribbon: Casts Suzowall
Sage Mask: Casts Wall
Sage Ring: Casts Spela
Warrior Ring: Casts AttackUp on the user
Speed Ring: Casts SpeedUp on the user
Bikini: Casts Wall
Flame Ring: Casts Suzun
Light Ring: Casts Kekun
Wind Ring: Casts Lelun
Mage Ring: Casts Gubo
Red Hot Cane: Casts Suzan
Thunder Cane: Casts Kekan
Tempest Cane: Casts Lelan
Sage Cane: Casts SkillsUp

Lennus II: Apostles of the Seals Mercenary List



Here is the list of Lennus II mercenaries and their positive and negative traits... It's still in progress, so there's not really as much information about many of these mercenaries as you'd probably like.
.
-The Andel mercenaries are Chest, Zock, Joad, Yuma, and Melina. All of them have their uses in Andel, but afterwards, you might want to find other, more powerful mercenaries.

-Zock has the most HP and can equip the most stuff out of the Andel mercenaries. He can also use
Suzan, Lelan and SpeedUp. Lelan tears apart many early-to-mid game bosses.

-Chest starts off the weakest, but has higher stat growths than the other Andel mercenaries. He can also equip Slashers, which attack a group of enemies. He knows Kekan, Lelan and DefUp.

-Joad can use Slashers as well, and is capable of casting AttackUp, which is always useful.

-Yuma uses Kekan and Kekun to great effect, though she can't use much equipment. She gains Wisdom very quickly, so she'll become a formidable caster with some training.

-Melina is pretty much the same as Yuma, except she casts Lelan and Lelun. She is more useful than Yuma overall, due to many of the early-game bosses being weak to Lelan.

Chrono Trigger Technique Details

Here's the technique list, sorted by character, and with extra information wherever I think it belongs. Before getting to the list, here are a few terms, some borrowed from the JP version, that I use throughout the page:

Damage Types
体  Inflicts physical damage (or is at least considered physical for counterattacks). The kanji means "body", and seems appropriate enough.
天  Inflicts damage of Crono's element. Means "sky" or "heaven", not "lightning".
水  Inflicts damage of Marle and Frog's element. Means "water".
火  Inflicts damage of Lucca's element. Means "fire".
冥  Inflicts damage of Magus's element. Means "dark".
※  Inflicts non-elemental magical damage.
N/A  Doesn't target enemies.
-  Undetermined.
Targeting Examples
Ally  Any single ally   Aura, Cure Beam
Allies  All allies, regardless of positioning   Heal Beam, Aura Whirl
Enemy  Any single enemy   Rocket Punch, Drill Kick
Enemies  All enemies, regardless of positioning   Laser Whirl, Icewater
Zone  The target enemy and all enemies within a set distance from it   Whirlslash, Reaction Bomb
Near  All enemies within a set distance from the user   Circle Bomb, Double Bomb
Ray  All enemies along the ray from the user through the target enemy, even those beyond it   Wind Scythe, Sword Fling
Line  The target enemy and all enemies between it and the user   Flamethrower
Horizontal  All enemies along the horizontal line through the target   Falcon Slash, Line Bomb
General stat and damage algorithm information

Lennus II: Apostles of the Seals Experience Chart

The level cap is presumably 99. This game can be beaten at level 34-35 with some difficulty, though you should probably be around level 38 for an easier time. Characters start requiring well over a million EXP to level up at level 40, and this number only increases exponentially from there, before seemingly stabilizing at level 64. Seriously, read past the line break to see just how utterly ridiculous level grinding can get in this game.

Once you reach level 46, the EXP to next level starts getting weird and begins to roll over. The EXP counter is not capable of handling integers greater than 16777215, apparently. So, for levels 46 and above, I will continue to post the real total EXP and additional EXP required to level up, and in parentheses, I will post how many times the EXP counter rolled over so far for every level plus what the game says is the next level EXP requirement. It's still a work in progress, and it takes an incredibly long time to gain levels after about level 50, so finishing it might take a while. So, without further wasting of your time, here is the Lennus II Experience Chart.

Lennus II: Apostles of the Seals Boss Information

Lennus II Bosses (note: all HP figures are estimates, and I am most likely wrong on several of them. Also, there are a few early bosses whose weaknesses, EXP and Gold I forgot to fill out when I fought them)


Tainted Clutch
HP: 500-600
EXP: 6
Gold: 30
Notes: Attacks one character for 30-50 damage. Often crawls back into its eggshell, wasting its turn... Until you reach level 8, in which case it starts spamming Lelun and hitting all characters for around 100 damage. Beating the boss may also trigger Lejun spam from future Tainted Clutch encounters as well, though I'm not entirely sure on this.

Doughren
HP: 2600-2700
Weakness: Lelan
EXP: 30
Gold: 250
Notes: Can attack for 60-80 damage to one, Often casts Lejun on all characters for 100-120 damage, will eat monster eggs to heal 300 HP when low on HP. As long as you're at least level 5, you should beat him without much difficulty.

Lennus II Apostles of the Seals General Information

Here is some detailed information on the sequel to Paladin's Quest known as Lennus II: The Apostles of The Seals, released in Japan for Super Famicom in 1996, and translated into English by Dynamic Designs in 2008. The reasons for this game not being released stateside are unknown... But it's probably because the Playstation, Sega Saturn and Nintendo 64 were already shifting into high gear here, and they figured people didn't care as much about new games for the SNES anymore. Another reason could be because Paladin's Quest wasn't really all that popular in the US.  A third possible reason is the fact that this game has some sexually suggestive situations and dialogue. But, at any rate, this game and its predecessor are both pretty good, and worthy of consideration by any hardcore RPG fan, and I'm disappointed that Lennus II wasn't released stateside, yet, truthfully, if it was released overseas, they'd probably give it a pretty shoddy localization and the translation would probably be pretty horrible just like they did with Paladin's Quest. At any rate, you should try this game out if you haven't already, and, for that matter, you should also give Paladin's Quest a try as well if you like challenging RPGs, but that's a topic for another time.

Status effects:
Poison: Causes afflicted characters to take approx. 1/40 of their max HP damage every few steps while walking around. When this happens, the screen flashes red and becomes all blurry, a somewhat loud sound effect signifying damage plays, and movement stops for a second. Clear this status effect immediately, if only to avoid irritation of the eyes, ears and in general.
Stun: Afflicted character can't perform any actions. This usually resolves within a round or two, and wears off at the end of battle.
Daze: Basically a combination of Confusion and Silence. The afflicted character can't cast any spells, and will instead randomly hit enemies or party members (including him/herself) a random number of times without using any of his/her equipment. This can be a pretty devastating status ailment if a strong physical attacker like Nikita or Polock is affected by it. This doesn't wear off at the end of battle, but it does usually resolve within a round or two of battle.
Moldy: Randomly disables item commands. This is effectively the same thing as, and probably the inspiration for, the Rot status from Legend of Legaia. Spells work perfectly fine, but this can be a huge problem for predominantly physical attackers.
Eaten: Some monsters can eat a character, taking them out of the battle for several turns, and draining their HP periodically. It shows the character sticking halfway out of the enemy's mouth during the duration of the status effect. Also, 10% of all damage done to an enemy that's eating a character is also done to the character being eaten.
Stone: Character is a statue and therefore can't act. This status only occurs once as part of a scripted event, and is never seen again to the best of my knowledge.

More RPG glitches, observations, oddities, and other trivia


-In Dragon Warrior III (NES version only), it is possible to raise HP and MP beyond 999. Also, stats raised beyond 255, which can only be achieved via the use of stat-raising items, automatically roll over to 0. In the case of Vitality and Intelligence, you can apparently use this to raise HP and MP far beyond normal values, though I haven't verified this yet. Again, this only applies to the NES version, but it's still great knowledge for anyone who wants to attempt a solo character challenge. Also, anyone who's playing a hard-mode hack of this game will probably appreciate this knowledge as well.
-Also, the vault in Luisa's Place is bugged. It can safely hold up to 120 items, and normally you won't be able to put any more items in there after you've hit the storage cap. However, there is one way to put more items in the Vault, and that's by doing the New Town sidequest. The Merchant will put all of his/her stuff in the Vault when he/she leaves the party. Now, here's where the game-breaking bug occurs... If the vault is full, any of the last items stored in the Vault are overwritten by said Merchant's items. Any items that were replaced permanently disappear from the game entirely. This can include key items needed to progress through the game like the Thief's Key,  Final Key, The Royal Scroll, Vase of Drought, The Ball of Light, the Rainbow Drop, etc. The game gives absolutely NO warning about this. So, be careful not to put too many items in there until after the New Town sidequest is over and done with. Again, NES version only. All future versions have a bag that can hold 99 of every item in the game.
-Deleting too many characters from the Registry in Luisa's Place can mess up your hero's spell list. It apparently causes your hero to learn spells he/she's not supposed to, and spells learned this way are all only usable in battle, even the ones that are normally capable of being used on the field (namely, Heal and Return). This is more annoying than outright game-destroying, but still, don't create too many characters you're not going to use. Again, NES version only. All future versions correct this.
-In the SFC and GBC versions of Dragon Warrior/Quest III, HP/MP are properly capped at 999, and all other stats properly cap at 255. Trying to use a seed on characters with their stats already maxed out will warrant the message "But nothing happened.".  Without LifeAcorns or MysticNuts, the max HP/MP is somewhere around 520.

-Enix seems to have learned from the above programming error by the time they released Dragon Warrior IV (NES version)... HP and MP are hard capped at 999, and Lifeforce Nuts and Mystic Acorns won't increase this further. When you level up, it SAYS your Maximum HP and MP have increased by so-and-so points, but you still really only have 999 HP. Stats are also hard capped at 255, and are in no danger of rolling over. If you try to use seeds on maxed stats, it will simply say "But nothing happened." and your seed disappears from the inventory. Of course, you will never naturally achieve 999 HP or MP through normal gameplay, and only Taloon is likely to even approach 999 HP at level 99 (He usually attains 900-950 whereas Hero, Alena and Ragnar usually only get around 600-700, and Cristo, Brey, Nara and Mara get 300-500). To put it in perspective, the game is typically and fairly easily beaten at around level 35-40.
-Also, EXP is capped at 10,000,000. Taloon's commissions (at the shop he works in at the beginning of Chapter 3) are also capped at 10,000,000 gold, even though realistically, you can only ever attain up to 580 gold from a single day with the best possible conditions being met. The max gold the vault in Endor can hold is 999,000. I'm personally slightly disappointed that it can't hold more than that. I am not sure how many items the vault can hold, or what happens when you exceed the maximum. Does it say that the vault is full and that it can't hold anymore, or does it glitch up and start randomly deleting items like in Dragon Warrior III? I might try to find this out one day.
-Though this is already well-known, most late-game bosses and a few random enemies secretly regenerate HP at the end of each round. Swingers (end-game enemy) restore 100 HP every round. Master Malice, Ogrebasher and Radimvice, enemies who seem like they should have HP regen, DON'T restore anything at the end of each round.
-Healus appears to have a chance of fully healing all characters when it is cast. DW4 is the only game where this chance occurs.

Mystic Ark Tips and Observations

Mystic Ark Tips and Observations

-The male and female hero, or Remeer and Ferris, aside from having a slightly different appearance from one another, are different in stats and spells as well.

-The male hero (Remeer) has high Power but moderately low Magic, and learns mostly fire-themed magic, and he eventually learns Kill whereas the female hero can't. He learns his battle skills slightly earlier than Ferris. He looks uncannily like Griffith from Berserk, except he doesn't turn evil or anything like that. He is also subject to a bit of snark from a few NPCs throughout the game due to his pretty-boy looks, and innkeepers think he's cute, but this doesn't really affect anything. The 7th Saga character he corresponds to is Olvan.

-The female hero (Ferris) has high Magic and moderately low Power, and learns mostly ice-themed magic, and learns Speed and Hard in place of Power, and can also eventually learn Cure, whereas the male hero can't. She learns her battle skills slower than Remeer, but learns her magic a lot quicker. and gets more respect from certain NPCs, mostly owing to her attractiveness. She's also kinda hot as well, though this is more obvious in official artwork than it is in-game. The 7th Saga character she corresponds to is Kamil.

-Both Remeer and Ferris have moderately high HP and MP, pathetic Guard and fairly high Speed, and can equip the same weapons and armor. Ferris learns a few more support/healing spells, while Remeer learns more attack spells, including an instant death spell. Your call on whichever hero you choose, really. The difficulty of the game doesn't really change much either way.

-Reeshine is a Grappler. She has high Power, Guard and Speed, low Magic, no spells, and absolutely 0 MP, not that she really needs it. She can equip mostly nunchaku and boomerangs, and can only equip gis as armor. She's very good at what she does, and that's kicking enemies' asses with powerful physical attacks and skills. Her Kick does about triple damage to one enemy, with accuracy being cut in half. Boost her Speed up, and she will make quick work of bosses. Her Smash is another half-accuracy attack which does half damage to all enemies, making it an inferior clone of Flurry.  She can also buff the entire party's Power with her War Cry skill.  She doesn't really have a 7th Saga counterpart, though her closest would probably be Wilme, due to both of them having obscene Power and Guard.

-Lux is a Tetsujin (literally man of iron in Japanese). You might recognize him from 7th Saga, although he looks quite a bit different here. He has his own equipment set. He has high HP, Power and Guard, and moderate MP, Speed and Magic. He uses a few spells, most of which are exclusive to him, but his true power lies in his skills. He learns Atomic, which does high, level-based, unavoidable damage to one enemy at a cost of 10 HP to himself, and later, he learns Full Atomic, which does slightly lower, level-based, unavoidable damage to all enemies for just 20 HP. Aside from Full Power, all of his skills/spells are direct damage dealers, so if you're trying to collect enemy figurines, you might want to have Lux sit those battles out. The 7th Saga she corresponds to is, obviously, Lux.

-Miriene is a Witch. She has high MP and Magic, low HP, Power and Guard, and average Speed. She can use knives and staffs. mostly learns attack magic. Sadly, attack spells aren't very good against many enemies in Mystic Ark. She also learns spells like Draw and Slow, which reduce enemy Power and Speed respectively, Mirror, which negates magic damage, and eventually learns Blackout, which almost always kills anything that isn't a boss. She can also reduce enemy Magic with Alluring Eyes and steal enemy MP with Kiss of Death. The 7th Saga character she corresponds to is Esuna.

-Tokio is a Ninja. He has low HP, MP and Guard, moderate Power and Magic, and extremely high Speed. He can equip most weapons, but he's mostly proficient with katanas and bows. He can cast a few attack and support spells, and learns the instant death spells Kill and Death Flare. He can also use Deathguard to negate enemies' instant death magic. He can also use the skill War Cry to buff allies' Power, and the powerful Illusion Strike to physically attack twice. The 7th Saga character he corresponds to is Lejes.

-Kamiwoo is an Ogre. He has moderate HP and Speed, low MP and Magic, and high Power and Guard. He can equip axes, but his armor choices are quite limited. He can use a variety of attack magic, mostly of the Ice variety. He can also cast the death spells Kill, Death Flare, and the awesome Blackout, which usually kills non-bosses. He can use a variety of skills as well, like Flurry, which does 50% of the damage a normal physical attack would against all enemies, Breath, a powerful skill which does high Magic stat-based fire damage against all enemies, War Cry, which buffs the entire party's Power, and Threaten, which lowers one enemy's Power. The 7th Saga character he corresponds to is Wilme.

-Meisia is a Priestess. She has low HP and Guard, pathetic Power, moderate Speed, and very high MP and Magic. She specializes in healing magic, and can buff allies' Power, Guard, Speed and Magic with her spells. She can also cast the ultimate attack spells, Holy Emblem and Freezing Hell, but they're absurdly expensive, and in most cases not worth it. She can lull enemies to sleep with her Wish Song skill, and regenerate a little bit of HP/MP with her Prayer/Compassion skills. Compassion and Wish Song are always useful, Prayer sucks. The 7th Saga character she corresponds to is Valsu.

-Just carrying your partners' figurines around awards them 75% of the EXP the hero gains in battle, so you don't have to worry about them falling too far behind. Any partners that join you in battle get full EXP.

-There are no revival spells or items in this game. Instead, if one of your partners falls in battle, their figurine disappears from your inventory and gets transported back to the pedestal you picked them up from the first time. That's right... if one of your partners dies, you have to go all the way back to the Shrine and grab their figurine from the pedestal again. As for the hero, this being an Enix game, if s/he dies, you end up back at the place you last saved with half of your total gold missing. Try your best to keep everyone alive.

-Spells and most skills can't overkill enemies. They will never do more than the enemy's max HP in damage. If you want to test an attack's true strength, test it on enemies that can take more than one hit of it. Flurry is the only exception to this rule. It always does exactly 50% of the damage a regular attack would do to all enemies, even if it would overkill them.

-Lux and Kamiwoo's Full Power skill increases their Power and Guard by 50% for 3-6 turns, but then causes Fatigue, which reduces Power and Guard by about 40% for about 10-15 turns. Full Power and Fatigue both last multiple battles, until the required turn total for both to resolve is met. Also, Full Power can't be used again until Fatigue is resolved. It can be a lifesaver in boss battles, but is generally not worth it in random encounters.

-Certain monsters can be turned into items that permanently boost your stats by 1-4. WARNING: Abusing these items utterly destroys what little difficulty the game has, so I recommend that you play through the game and beat it once or twice before using these items. Here's the list...

-Undead Hearts can be transformed into Guard Figurines. They disappear after World 3 is cleared.
-Colored Orcs can be transformed into Speed Figurines. They disappear after World 4 is cleared.
-Beholders can be turned into MP Figurines. You can also get MP Seeds in World 3 for 1020G a pop, though you can only have one at a time.
-Stone Demons can be turned into HP Figurines.
-Cursed Warriors can be transformed into Power Figurines.
-Jasmine 49s can be turned into Magic Figurines.
-The hero's level is capped at 81. Your partners' levels are capped at 78. They reach this level at 99,999,900 EXP. Why the levels are capped in such an arbitrary fashion is beyond me. The hero reaches level 80 and your partners reach level 77 at about 43 million EXP. Meaning, you have to gain almost 57 million EXP just to reach that last level. Being that this game is fairly easily beatable at around level 35, this is less of a tip than an observation.

-Gold and Platinum are capped at 99,999,999. You'll probably never have to worry about hitting the cap for either, though.

-Another observation... The playtime on the save screen doesn't max out at 99:59. It rolls over to 00:00 and keeps going from there. This affects absolutely nothing.

-When stat buffs increase a certain stat by over 100 points, it tends to either only show the last two digits or combine the first two digits into one number somehow. This is merely a graphical glitch. You will still get the full stat boosts. This only applies if you have over 500 in the stat you're trying to boost, though, and unless you've used tons of stat-boosting Figurines or are very close to max level, you're not going to have over 500 in any stat.

-Contrary to what many FAQs and message boards say, stats are NOT capped at 999. You can have four-digit stats if you're willing to spend hours farming Figurines, or if you have over 500 in the stat you're trying to boost, and cast the spell that boosts that stat enough times. When stats increase beyond 999, it just shows the last three digits of the stat. For example, if you have 1,016 Power, it just shows 016. Theoretically, you could just keep abusing Power Figurines until you're strong enough to one-shot the final boss. Stats are most likely capped at 65535, though if you were psychotic enough to put forth the effort to get your stats that high, they would most likely just roll over back to 0.

-HP and MP aren't capped at 999 either. If you use enough HP/MP figurines to have your HP/MP go above 999, it just keeps going to 1000 and beyond, with only the last three numbers showing. And no, if you have exactly 1000 HP, the game won't somehow go derpy on you and trick itself into thinking you're at 0 HP and autokill you the instant you go into battle or whatever. It just says you have "000 HP" when you really have 1,000. In fact, HP and MP are capped at 65535. If you somehow get your HP above 32,767, your life meter starts doing weird things. It might start decreasing from left to right instead of right to left like it normally does. Or, it might wrap around the screen. This little tidbit is irrelevant for people who aren't using cheats or who haven't spent thousands of hours grinding HP figurines, and even so, it's only a graphical glitch.

-Power, obviously, affects the damage your physical attacks and skills do. Physical attacks deal 75-125% of your Attack stat - the enemy's Guard stat. Flurry and Smash hit for half the damage of a normal physical attack. Kick does 3x the damage a physical attack would do, at about half the accuracy.
-Guard affects the damage you take from physical attacks. Damage is reduced by 1 for every Guard point the receiving character has.
-Speed affects how often you hit enemies and evade their attacks. It also affects your chance of running away from random encounters.
-The Magic stat appears to be completely useless in terms of altering magic damage... with one exception. Magic affects the amount of damage Kamiwoo's Breath does. For everyone else, swording at things is the most effective strategy for maximum enemy killage. Rather, the Magic stat basically serves as your magical speed stat. It dictates magical accuracy and evasion. The higher your Magic stat, the more likely it is your spells hit enemies, and the less likely it is enemy spells hit you.

Mystic Ark Enemies (Now with detailed statistical information straight from the game's source code)

Mystic Ark enemies

02/24/15 UPDATE: All statistical figures are extracted from the game's source code. This guide now contains detailed information on most enemies, including level, HP, MP, Power, Guard, Magic, Speed, elemental resistances, experience, and gold gained. This post is still incomplete, as there are some enemies that are completely inaccessible after certain points in the game, but I will get to updating their stats eventually, when I decide to do another full playthrough of this game.



06/21/16 UPDATE: Finally got all the enemies' information mostly down. Might have missed a few enemies' resistances, but all their listed levels, HP, MP, Power, etc. are there for everyone to see, lifted straight from the ROM data. I'll consider myself about 98% done with this list. Monsters are listed in the order they appeared in the ROM data. Also, there are two other resistances listed after Wind in the data for each monster, but I haven't really figured out what they do yet, so I have omitted them until I have figured out precisely what they do, and get the time to update this.


Note: This guide uses the Aeon Genesis translation for all enemies, items, magic, locations, etc. Same applies to all the other Mystic Ark posts on this blog.

Dragon Quest III (SNES/GBC) Personality Guide

http://cdn.wikimg.net/strategywiki/images/d/dc/DQIII_starting_personality.png

Personalities are a game mechanic added to the remakes of Dragon Quest III which effect character stat growth. The Hero is assigned one of 30 personalities through a test at the beginning of the game and recruited members are assigned a personality based on their starting stats. Personalities can be changed throughout the game with the use of book items and by equipping certain pieces of equipment. There are a total of 45 possible personalities. Note that in most Dragon Quest games, stats are determined randomly at level up, or according to a specific distribution of growth.

In the sections below, the names of personalities from the Game Boy Color version of Dragon Quest III are used. These are the only 'official' names for personalities as the Super Nintendo version of the game was never officially translated. However, most fan translation names are similar to the ones used in the Game Boy Color version.

Analysis

The sexy personality is often regarded as the best due to its +70% composite stat bonus. For this reason, choosing female characters is often preferred since males cannot have the sexy personality. Personality does not effect anything significant in the game other than stats, so it does not benefit the player to have any character with a personality that results in a negative overall composite total. Certain personalities are better for specific classes. For example, a male fighter that has a lucky personality will keep his traditionally high agility and add a high amount of luck. This allows him to cause even more critical hits.

Hero Personality Quiz

Starting personality graph

At the start of a new game, the hero is asked a series of questions by an unknown source. These questions determine the hero's starting personality. It is later revealed that the questioner is actually Divinegon, boss of the first bonus dungeon. The player is asked to enter their real name and birth date, however these inputs have no effect on the resulting personality test. The first question is randomly chosen from the 5 possible starting questions. Any of the 30 possible personalities can be obtained from any of the 5 starting questions. In total, there are 43 different questions that can be asked, including 1 question which can be asked twice.

At the end of each possible question chain is an imaginary scenario in which the hero must decide what to do. These scenarios determine the final personality. There are 8 different scenarios that can be played depending on the player's answers to the questions. Some scenarios have up to 5 possible personality results depending on the actions of the hero during the scenario.

The 30 possible starting personalities for a hero are:

    Alert
    Bully
    Carefree
    Careless
    Cowardly
    Defiant
    Diligent
    Eager
    Fearless
    Foolish
    Happy
    Helpless
    Honest
    Kindly
    Lazy
    Lewd
    Logical
    Lonesome
    Macho
    Naive
    Romantic
    Selfish
    Sexy
    Silly
    Solitary
    Stubborn
    Timid
    Tough
    Vain
    Valiant
    Weepy

The 15 personalities which the hero cannot start with are:

    Agile
    Amazon
    Eager
    Ironman
    Jock
    Ladylike
    Lucky
    Meddler
    Ordinary
    Quick
    Sharp
    Smart
    Tomboy
    Twisted
    Unique

Recruitable member personality

Characters which are created and recruited at Luisa's Place have different mechanism to determine their personality. Each character class has its own set of base statistics.
Class       STR AGI VIT INT LUC
Soldier/Warrior (M) 9 2 9 2 3
Soldier/Warrior (F) 8 3 8 3 3
Fighter (M) 14 9 7 3 2
Fighter (F) 12 11 7 4 3
Wizard/Mage (M) 3 6 4 7 3
Wizard/Mage (F) 2 7 4 7 3
Priest (M) 4 5 4 6 3
Priest (F)         4 5 4 6 3
Dealer (M) 5 1 6 6 4
Dealer (F) 5 2 5 7 4
Jester (M) 4 3 6 2 10
Jester (F)         4 3 5 3 10
Thief (M)            6 10 5 5 8
Thief (F)            5 12 5 6 8

As each character is created, the player is given the opportunity to use five seeds to further raise the character's stats. Each seed will increase the single stat by 1-3 points. The seeds can be distributed manually or randomly by the computer if the player chooses that option. After the final starting stats have been determined, a calculation is performed to determine the personality.

The base values from the above table are subtracted from the final starting stats to get the "bonus" values, i.e. the amount by which each stat exceeds the base value for the character's gender and class. The five stats are ranked from highest to lowest bonus. If two stats have an equal bonus, the base stat value is used to break the tie. Finally, a personality is chosen based on the class, the highest bonus, the value of that bonus, the second-highest bonus in some cases, and random chance.

How to get the personality that you want
Summary

    Choose a personality and find which primary stat bonus needs to be boosted.
    Boost primary stat.
    Spend remaining points on tertiary stats (the ones that don't help the class much).

When recruiting party members the best thing to do is to save between making party members. Choose the class you will be recruiting, then choose a fully positive personality for the class that you are recruiting, for example, the Honest personality for Priests/Clerics (which is primarily Str, Vit, and Int focused). Some personalities are better for building a particular stat and are meant for advanced progression strategies (e.g. focusing on a personality that gives the highest bonus for a particular stat).

After you've chosen the personality that you want, look in the above tables to see which primary stat needs to be given seeds in order to get it. Although the requirements for getting the personality you want may result in skewed starting stats, that is a minor inconvenience. Now, if you have a Priest/Cleric that you want to have, for example, the personality type of Honest, you have to make sure the following conditions are met (this is also outlined in the tables, above):

    STR must be the stat with the highest bonus from applying seeds. Make sure you do not add more than 6 points to STR.
    Neither VIT nor INT can have the second highest bonus from applying seeds.

The easiest way to make sure the second condition is met is by not spending any points in it. A better way is to make sure STR has 3-6 points (1-3 seeds) in it, then add 2-5 points (1-2 seeds) to another stat that doesn't affect personality (in this case AGI and LUK). The final seed can then, probably, be safely be added to INT or VIT (in some cases the final seed will apply 2 points and mess the whole thing up).

The result is a slightly skewed set of stats, but after a couple of levels they will be on track again.
Altering Personality

Personality can be altered during the game in two ways: a character can equip a piece of equipment which forces a specific personality, or a book item can be used which changes the character's base personality. Book items can be found throughout the game, with many hidden in bookcases and pots in towns. The most highly valued book is the sexy book which is obtainable through one of the wishes Divinegon grants.
