2.4.1 - Final Fantasy Gaiden: Seiken Densetsu (USA: Final Fantasy Adventure)

All life in the world springs forth from a waterfall which flows from
the base of a tree known as the Tree of Mana. The waters from this tree
are the essence of life itself, and not only create life, but purify
those living in the world. In turn, the goodness in the world supports
and strengthens the Mana Tree. However, this idyllic relationship is
very unstable. The Mana Tree dependance on the will of all those who
live in the world means that should the beauty and peace of the world be
tainted with evil, the tree will suffer. Given a great enough evil, the
tree will begin spewing forth waters that no longer strengthen peace in
the world, but rather breed evil in the minds of the inhabitants of the
world. This generation of evil will spiral in until the world is
completely consumed by it. Anyone who managed to gain control of this
tree could effectively rule the world with near limitless power. Thus,
the tree was to be protected - the shrine that surrounded it was
considered sacred and no man dared tread on its hallowed grounds.
However, long ago, the Emperor of a land known as Vandole entered the
shrine and began to use the power of the Mana Tree to enhance his evil
and enslave the people of his kingdom. However, his attempt to rule the
world was thwarted by the Gemma Knights, the guardians of the Mana Tree,
and the Mana Family, the Tree's keepers. Following the battle, the Mana
Family feared that the tree could once again be used for evil purposes,
and therefore decided to seal the shrine with a magical pendant. Many
years later, another corrupt ruler turned his eyes toward the Mana Tree.
Dark Lord, ruler of the Empire of Glaive, wishes to use the tree for his
own evil purposes. He is assisted by a sorcerer named Julius, who knows
a suspicious amount of information about the nature of the Tree and the
Pendant that was used to seal the shrine. Some people of this world are
unfortunate enough to be captured and forced to fight evil monsters for
the entertainment of Dark Lord, as well as the increase amount of evil
in the world. These people fight over and over until they die. The hero
is one of these people, and was originally captured after sneaking into
Dark Lord's castle to find out what he and Julius were up to. After a
battle one day, his best friend, when lying on his death bed, tries to
tell the hero what he knows about what is going on. He manages to mumble
only a few words about Mana, the Gemma Knights, and a particular person,
Bogard, whom the hero should see if he should ever escape. The hero
indeed escapes, and eventually finds this person, after being pushed off
a cliff by Dark Lord and being saved by a young girl. Bogard turns out
to be a Gemma Knight, but is very old. He helps the hero continue on his
journey, but he learns very little from Bogard. Bogard almost doesn't
help the hero at all, until he sees a pendant the girl has around her
neck...

This game is not an RPG in the way the the SaGa and Final Fantasy series
were. It is actually an adventure game, fought real-time. Although
similar in battle-style to Nintendo's Legend of Zelda, it differs
greatly because of the presence of a good storyline and the ability to
develop, and more importantly, control the development of, your
character. You have the ability to talk to people, as well as sell and
purchase items, armor, and weapons. At certain points you learn special
magic spells, and at others you will be assisted by one of several
characters who will not only fight at your side, but will also offer
advice or provide some service (i.e. heal you).
