The Tone Rebellion is a trademark of The Logic Factory, Inc.
This strategy guide is based on my observations from many long hours of playing
Rebellion. Some of the tables at the end of this document are based on what is
printed in the manual. Let's
start with a brief discussion of the four realms and the effect they have on
1. Realms of Existence
There are four realms of existence in The Tone Rebellion. These are:
? The Physical realm, the realm of matter and objectively defined reality.
? The Supernatural realm, the realm of logic, reason, and understanding.
? The Ethereal realm, the realm of spirits, dreams, and the intangible.
? The Natural realm, the realm of life and instincts.
Living creatures exist on all four realms at once, but they are most comfortable
perception is firmly rooted in one realm. They can dimly perceive creatures of
other realms, but they will
seem to have amazing powers and will seem alien and frightening.
For example, to a physical Floater, creatures of the natural realm have
otherworldly powers, and what they do is strange and seemingly without purpose.
Energy flows in limited
ways between the realms. The direction of the flow determines how much one
realm can affect another, as
? Physical dominates Supernatural
? Supernatural dominates Ethereal
? Ethereal dominates Natural
? Natural dominates Physical
There are also tides between the realms which oppose each other. These pairs of
realms are called
opposites, as shown below:
? Physical is opposite Ethereal
? Natural is opposite Supernatural
When the energy tide favors a realm, it dominates its opposite across the
circle. The tides spend
equal time at each end of their swing so, overall, no realm dominates its
opposite. An example of this
influence is an ethereal vampire, who has frightening powers at night but is
weakened and helpless during
the day, when its nocturnally helpless victims of the physical realm are bold
Each of the four tribes of Floaters comes from a different realm. The Tark
exist in the Physical
realm. They are always more powerful than Supernatural creatures, but are weak
against Natural creatures.
Depending on the tides, they may be more or less powerful than Ethereal
creatures. The Zygons exist in
the Supernatural realm. They are stronger than Ethereal creatures and weaker
than Physical creatures, and
so forth. The Cepheans exist in the Ethereal realm, and the Dyla exist in the
In game terms, this means that you may be stronger or weaker than some of
that you will face. There are four Leviathan spawn of each realm, two with
ranged attacks and two
without. When a Tark attacks a Drack, a Leviathan creature from the
supernatural realm, the Tark's attacks
will hit more frequently and do more damage, while the Drack will do less damage
than normal. If the
same Tark is attacked by a Zwacker, a creature of the Natural realm, the
Zwacker's attacks will be stronger
than usual, and it will be more resistant to the attacks of the Tark. A Zygon
would be more effective
against a Ronth (ethereal), and less effective against a Rakalingus (physical),
and so forth.
Some Floaters of a given tribe are able to shift their perception into another
realm. For example,
the Tark Gazers are able to perceive the supernatural plane. There are also
spells that can shift the
perceptions of a Floater to the next realm, or back to the previous one. For
instance, casting the Realm
Transcend spell on a group of Gazers will shift their perception (temporarily)
into the Ethereal realm. This
affects their strength against creatures of other realms. Table 4 at the end of
this strategy guide gives you
some basic information on all the different enemies you will face in the game.
At the lower levels of difficulty, you can pretty much ignore these effects.
At higher levels,
however, the effect of the tides is more pronounced, and you will want to learn
which creatures should be
attacked by which group of Floaters.
2. Tone Pools, Tone Flow, and Tone Nodes
You must have an understanding of the way in which Tone functions. Tone Pools
are the source
of Tone Flow, which provides the vital force for the structures and Floaters of
your tribe. Each Pool that
you restore to health will add to the tribal Tone Flow. Each Floater consumes
one point of Tone Flow
simply by living. Each Tone Spreader, Tone Solidifier, Tone Crystal Grower, and
Magic Tone Creator also
consumes one point of Tone Flow.
Tone nodes resemble blue spirals. They come in three sizes: Small, medium, and
large. Your four
basic structures (Tone Spreaders, Tone Solidifiers, Tone Crystal Grower, and
Magic Tone Creator) should
be built on the small nodes wherever possible. This allows you to build your
Dojos and mage towers on the
medium and large nodes. You can see the current boundary of the Tone Flow by
looking at which Nodes
You liberate Tone Pools by removing the spawners and the growths around it. If
it does not start
spouting Tone (which means it has not been primed), you can prime the pool by
spreading Tone over to it.
You always want to build Tone Spreaders as close to the current boundary of the
Tone Flow as possible,
and preferably on one of the smaller nodes.
New Floaters will only be born when you have a Surplus Flow of 5 or greater.
If you lose all your
Tone Pools, no new workers can be born, and the game is over for you. If you
have more than one Tone
Solidifier, Tone Crystal Grower, or Magic Tone Creator, and you are not using
all of them, you can turn the
building off to get more Tone Flow. You cannot turn off Tone Spreaders, but if
you are not using any of
the nodes that it activated, then you can order your Floaters to attack and
If you need more workers, and you are having trouble getting enough Tone Flow,
and if you have
more than one Dojo, then try to find a Dojo that you aren't really using much.
Order your Floaters to attack
and destroy it. The Floaters that were trained in that Dojo will revert to
Workers are very intelligent, and are the experts on how to get things done.
They organize their
own efforts on the jobs you give them, rather than you giving specific orders to
each Floater. They balance
their work based on the importance you assign to each job. Floaters that have
been trained in Dojos will
not do the job of a Worker. Workers can and will cross the bridges between the
islands, so they will go
where the work is. Here are some of the jobs that Workers can perform:
? Build structures
? Charge Dojos and spell towers so their special Floaters can recharge energy,
heal, and train
? Repair structures
? Enlarge structures
? Use keys and artifacts
? Defend against hostile intruders, usually as a last-ditch measure, when the
panic button is on
You can control the priority of jobs from the Task List. Each task can be
cancelled, or you can set
it to Normal Priority, High Priority, or Exclusive Priority. Any job set to
Exclusive Priority will only share
Workers with other Exclusive jobs. Any High or Normal priority jobs are put on
hold as long as an
Exclusive job is being performed.
High Priority jobs get a larger percentage of the work than Normal Priority
jobs, but the Normal
jobs are not put on hold. For example, if you had 16 Workers and 4 jobs, then
each job would normally get
4 Workers assigned to it. If you set two of those jobs to High Priority, they
would get 6 Workers each,
while the other two Normal priority jobs would get 2 Workers each.
Note that in order to build a Tone Spreader, Tone Solidifier, Tone Crystal
Grower, and Magic
Tone Creator, you must have at least one point of Tone Flow available. If you
start building one of these
four structures, and you notice that no Workers are being assigned to it, then
you will have to turn off or
destroy one of your other buildings to get the Flow you need.
Workers can defend against hostile intruders, if you turn on the panic button.
your first Dojo is built, spores may threaten your only Tone Pool, or a
Leviathan creature may start
attacking one of your buildings to try to destroy it. If this happens, use the
panic button. Your Workers are
physically weak, however, and if you attack a creature with them, expect some of
them to die. (Spores
don't have an attack, so they are not a danger to your Workers. not directly,
4. Tone Creators and Stockpiles
There are three types of Tone, each with its own purpose. Structure Tone is
produced by a Tone
Solidifier. Your Tribal Center will also produce Structure Tone, but at a
painfully slow rate. These balls of
solidified Tone are used to build, upgrade, and repair structures. It is also
used when teleporting structures.
Tone Crystals are the densest, most energetic form of Tone. A Dojo uses these
crystals to fuel the
large amounts of energy that the trained Floaters use in their attacks. They
are also used for training and
healing Floaters. Tone Crystals and Magic Tone are both required to cast
spells. Tone Crystals are created
by Tone Crystal Growers.
Finally, the intangible orbs of Magic Tone makes the casting of spells possible,
and some is used
with each spell cast. It also supplies one of the components needed to teleport
structures. It is created by a
Magic Tone Creator.
At the start of a game, your Tribal Center has 50 balls of Structure Tone in its
stockpile. It can
store up to 150 of each type of Tone. As you discover more islands, your Tribal
Center will become
noticeably larger. A Level 2 Center can stockpile 200 of each type of Tone, and
the largest Center can
stockpile 250 of each type of Tone. When you teleport a building, it always
draws Magic Tone and
Structure Tone from this reserve.
To look at the Tribal Center status, click on any empty part of the screen.
There will be three huts
below the "Spare Flow" indicator. These icons may have a closed roof (no Tone
goes in or out of storage,
though the reserve of Structure Tone and Magic Tone will still be used when
teleporting buildings). If
there is an arrow pointing out of the hut, your Workers may take that type of
Tone from your stockpile. If
there is an arrow pointing into the hut, your Workers will begin delivering the
appropriate type of Tone to
the Tribal Center, unless you are already storing the maximum possible amount.
Each Dojo also has its own stockpile of Crystal Tone (and Magic Tone for mage
towers). If this
stockpile is less than maximum, your Workers will automatically start delivering
Crystal and/or Magic
Tone to the building until the stockpile is at maximum. This stockpile is used
whenever a Floater is
trained, or when they must return to the building to heal or recharge. Trained
Floaters will only go back to
the Dojo that trained them, never to any other Dojo or your Tribal Center.
So, if you are under frequent attack, and your trained Floaters are returning
frequently to the Dojo,
you may want to check the task list and find which task is supplying Tone to
that Dojo, and assign more
workers to it by raising the task's priority. The reason they may be returning
frequently may be because
there is not enough Tone being delivered to fully recharge the Floaters.
5. Giving Orders to trained Floaters
The quickest way to give orders to your trained Floaters is to left-click on one
of the Floaters from
a group, then right-click on a target. They will perform the most appropriate
action based on where you
clicked. If you right-clicked on a building, they will guard that building. If
you right-clicked on a creature
or growth, they will attack that creature, and so forth. You can also send them
back to the Dojo to recharge
if you have time between attacks, to ensure that they are ready for the next
When you attack an enemy, the Floaters attacking that enemy will automatically
try to flee back to
their Dojo when either their charge or their health gets too low. It is
advisable later in the game to have at
least two Dojos, so that you can have one on the front lines while the other
returns to its Dojo to recharge.
Spell casters tend to hang around their mage tower, and will protect it if it is
threatened. You want
to keep your mage tower close to the front lines so your mages can respond
quickly, but not so close that
the building gets threatened because your spell casters are physically weak.
You can order Spell Floaters to
a specific location by right-clicking on where you want them to go when their
spell tower is selected.
Remember that you can order your Dojo Floaters to attack your own buildings if
you need extra
Tone Flow. If you desperately need Workers, you can attack one of your own
6. Getting Started
No matter which tribe you start the game as, you will start with the same
resources: You will have
one Tone Pool, four Workers, and 50 Structure Tone in your Tribal Center. If
you play as the Tark, you
will start on the island Tarzus; the Cepheans start in the Cephean Sea (duh!),
the Dyla start on the island
Pangir, and the Zygons originate from the Crystal Caves.
Your first objective should always be to build a Tone Solidifier in one of the
small Tone Nodes.
Once that is complete, you should begin construction of a Tone Crystal Grower
and your first Dojo. Your
first Dojo will be the Brotherhood of the Tentacle for the Tark, the Clan of Sol
for the Zygon, the Banshees
for the Cepheans, and the Summoners for the Dyla.
Once all these buildings are completed, you might want to build a Magic Tone
Creator and start
stockpiling all three types of Tone for later use. Your Tribal Center can store
150 Tone of each type. As
you visit more islands, your Tribal Center will grow; a Level 2 Tribal Center
can store 200 Tone of each
type, and a Level 3 Center can store 250 Tone of each type. Depending on the
level of difficulty you
selected, you may be able to build all four of these buildings and fill your
stockpile without ever
encountering any enemies, except for spores.
7. Early Expansion
Now it's time to start expanding. Build a Tone Spreader as close to the edge of
the Tone Flow as
possible. This will reveal more Tone Nodes and allow you to see more of the
map. Hopefully, this will
include a second Tone Pool, which will have a huge spawner growing over it.
You should start by ordering your trained Floaters to attack any spawn with a
especially if there is more than one. These include the Plasid, Grender,
Mesron, Clockwork Sentinel,
Anenepode, and Xylus. If there is more than one of these types of spawn, you
may want to ignore any
creatures until you've destroyed the spawn, because the spawn are much easier to
Next, attack any creatures in the area, then start attacking the spawn without a
Once all the spawn and creatures are gone, start attacking the spawner. (The
spawner itself cannot attack,
except to create new creatures; this is why you want to save it for last.) If
the spawner creates any new
creatures while you are attacking it, destroy the creature, then return to the
This should reveal a new Tone Pool, which may or may not be primed. If it is
not yet primed,
build another Tone Spreader as close to the current edge of the map as possible.
This should prime it and
allow it to add Tone Flow to your tribe.
Once you've captured a second Tone Pool, you may want to teleport a Tone
Solidifier and a Tone
Crystal Grower closer to the front lines, or build new ones. Then build a new
Dojo near the front lines.
Have the Floaters from your current Dojo set to guard the Tone Spreader that is
closest to the Tone Pool.
This way they can defend the Tone Pool from spores, and defend your workers from
Continue advancing in the same manner: Clear a Tone Pool, and set some of your
floaters to guard
that general area. At the lower difficulties, you may not have to keep
teleporting your structures to the
front lines. At higher difficulty levels, when the enemy attacks far more
frequently, you will probably want
to teleport your buildings closer to the front lines as you advance, so that
your Floaters won't have to go so
far to recharge.
Once you have destroyed all Spawners on an island, it becomes a mop-up job,
remaining creatures and growths. Leviathan creatures cannot cross over the
bridges to re-infest an island
that has been cleared.
8. Experience and Advancement
As your Floaters attack the enemy, they gain experience. All Floaters (except
for Mage Floaters)
gain one experience point per successful hit. Mage Floaters gain 5 experience
points for each spell they
cast. Floaters with enough experience are able to advance to a higher level.
Simply having the experience is not enough, though. As you open bridges to new
wisdom increases, and you will be able to upgrade your Dojos, or build a new
type of Dojo. If you can
upgrade a Dojo, a blue double-arrow will indicate that it can be upgraded. Once
a Dojo has been enlarged
to level two, your two most experienced Floaters from that Dojo will become
2nd-level Floaters. This will
increase their hit points and the strength of their attacks. Two Workers will
be recruited to replace the two
Likewise, when you upgrade a Dojo to level three, your most experienced 2nd
level Floater may be
advanced to 3rd level. Your most experienced 1st-level Floater will be advanced
to 2nd level, and a Worker
will be recruited to replace the 1st level Floater, for a maximum of six trained
Floaters per Dojo. If your
Floaters do not have enough experience to advance, that Dojo may be understaffed
for a while.
Mage towers are different. They only train one Floater of each level, for a
maximum of three
mages per tower.
The number of upgrades you will have depends on the size of the world, not on
level. On a small world (six islands) you will not be allowed to have most of
the upgrades and new Dojos.
On a medium world (ten islands) you will have all but one of the upgrades, and
on a large world (14
islands), you will be able to have all the upgrades. This makes a
high-difficulty game with a small world
extremely difficult, since you will not have as many high-powered Floaters.
Table 1 at the end of this
strategy guide gives you some information on the types of Dojos each tribe can
On most games, you can win with only a few buildings (other than Tone
Spreaders). Usually, this
consists of two or three Tone Solidifiers, three Tone Crystal Growers, and two
Magic Crystal Generators.
One of each of these, you will keep close to your Tribal Center for when you
want to replenish your
stockpile. The others you will place close to your front lines, so that you can
resupply your Dojos more
quickly. I usually build two Dojos of each type, except for Mage Towers; I
usually only build one Mage
Tower, because my mages rarely engage in direct combat.
9. Late Expansion
You will probably find one or more Bridge Keys on each island. These are used
to open passages
to other islands. I recommend advancing slowly, one island at a time. When you
open a bridge, take a look
at the new island first. You may need to send some trained Floaters to that
world to destroy any creatures
in the area first. Otherwise, when you start teleporting your buildings to that
world, the building may be
attacked, and can be badly damaged or destroyed before the Floaters catch up.
Teleporting a building is
instantaneous; the Floaters from that Dojo still have to get to the bridge and
cross the bridge to get there.
Also, before you start teleporting buildings, go to your Tribal Center and make
sure your stockpile
is fully charged. Remember that the Structure Tone and the Magic Tone stored in
your Tribal Center is
used to teleport buildings.
After you have cleared out the creatures, and perhaps the spawn with ranged
attacks, the first thing
you will teleport is one of your Dojos, followed by a Tone Crystal Grower and a
Tone Solidifier. Teleport
more Dojos to the island as you free up more Tone Nodes.
10. Mystic Locations and Artifacts
Each island has one of the ancient Mystic Locations on it. Each of these mystic
two artifacts to activate it. You will find these artifacts randomly scattered
around the islands. (This
randomness is the reason why it is impossible to write an actual "walkthru" for
this game.) The mystic
locations will be on the same islands every time, though. Table 5 at the end of
this strategy guide tells you
which artifacts are needed for each mystic location.
Each Mystic Location you activate will give you another rune. All the runes
must be found before
you can destroy the Leviathan. At some point after you get your first rune, an
Awakened One will be born.
This special floater will glow blue, so it is easy to identify. It tends to
hover around your Tribal Center,
except when you send it to Friid (the Leviathan's home) to use the runes you've
collected. You must keep
this floater alive; it is the only one who knows how to use the runes. It will
not act as a Worker, nor can it
be used to attack the enemy, except when the Panic button is turned on.
11. Using Spells
This section is slightly out of place, but I had to put it in somewhere. To use
a spell, select a spell
tower. Eight icons will appear in the lower right corner of the screen, each
one indicating a different spell.
If the tower doesn't have any mages experienced enough to cast the spell, the
name of the spell will appear
in red when you pass your cursor over it. If you have the skill to cast it (but
not necessarily enough Tone
Crystals or Magic Tone), the name of the spell will appear in white.
Most spells require a target after casting. Six spells do not require a target
at all. These are:
Healing, Sacrifice, Enchant Tribe, Chi Flare, Cadmus, and Channel Chronomyst.
Three spells require you to target a Tone Pool. These are Free Tone Pool, Tone
Pool Rebel, and
Six spells require you to target one of your Dojos. These are: Heal Dojo,
Repair, Force of Will,
Realm Transcend, Stamina, and Racial Memory.
The spell of Silent Shield is the only one that targets a specific Tone Node.
Enchant Dwelling can
target any of your buildings. Star Disk can be used on any structure or growth
except Spawners. Sky
Stoner and Paralyze Growths require you to target a growth, though Paralyze
Growth has an area of effect
and also paralyzes any growths near the target. Far Obtain's target is an
Spell duration can be classified as Temporary, Instant, or Permanent. Those
with Instant effects
are usually those which destroy something. These are Sacrifice, Star Disk, Sky
Stoner, Free Tone Pool,
and Chi Flare.
Most spells are temporary, and last for only a certain period of time. These
spells include Channel
Chronomyst, Cadmus, Racial Memory, Tone Pool Rebel, Stamina, Enchant Tribe,
Realm Transcend, Force
of Will, Pool Ward, Silent Shield, Enchant Dwelling, Paralyze Growths, and Far
Those spells that I classify as "Permanent" are usually healing spells. They
don't have a specific
duration, and their effects are permanent until the target is damaged again.
These include Heal Dojo,
Healing, Repair, and Awaken Spirit.
Table 2 at the end of this strategy guide tells you which spells can be used by
which tribes. Table
3 tells you how many Crystal Tone and Magic Tone are needed to cast the spell,
and a brief description.
12. Useful Spells
This section includes a listing of all the spells in the game, who can use them,
and when you will
find them most useful. Some spells are more useful than others. Your mileage
Enchant Dwelling is a 1st-level spell. The Cepheans and the Tarks can use this
spell. It is most
often used when you have a building (any building, not necessarily a Dojo) close
to the front lines that the
enemy seems determined to destroy. Casting this spell on that building will
temporarily protect it from all
Far Obtain is a 1st-level spell, used only by the Zygons. This is useful when
you want to grab an
artifact that is in a spot surrounded by a lot of dangerous creatures or spawn,
and you aren't ready to try to
destroy them yet. It will fetch an artifact from any visible spot on the island
where your mage tower is
located. It would be more useful if it would fetch an artifact from any island,
not just the one that the tower
Heal Dojo is a 1st-level spell, used by the Zygons and the Dyla. When you cast
this spell and pick
a Dojo, all the trained Floaters from that Dojo are fully healed. This is
especially useful when you're
engaged in a hot battle on the front lines, and you really can't risk pulling
them back to heal.
Healing is a 1st-level spell known only by the Dyla. It calls upon the essence
of Tone to heal
several of your most wounded Workers. I didn't think this spell was that
useful, since Workers are usually
easy to replace, and if you're careful, they won't be attacked anyway.
Paralyze Growths is known by the Zygons and Cepheans. This spell must be
targeted on a
specific Leviathan growth, but it has an area effect, temporarily paralyzing the
target and any other growths
nearby. It can be useful when you are getting ready to clear out a large
cluster of growths.
Pool Ward is a 1st-level spell known only to the Dyla. This is a very useful
spell, since it
surrounds a Tone Pool with an energy shield that prevents Leviathan Spores from
infecting it with a new
Spawner. If you don't have enough Magic Tone and Crystal Tone in your
stockpile, this spell can protect a
newly-freed Tone Pool until you can teleport a Dojo close enough to defend it.
Repair is another 1st-level spell known only to the Dyla. It is useful in the
same circumstances as
Enchant Dwelling. If one of your buildings keeps being attacked, you can use
this spell to keep it repaired
until help can arrive. It won't prevent it from being damaged again, but its
relatively low Tone cost makes
it economical to cast.
Sacrifice is a 1st-level spell known to the Tarks. The Wizard gives up his
life, creating a wave of
Tone power that will severely damage anything nearby. I almost never use this
spell, because it deprives
you of one of your mages until a new one can be trained.
Silent Shield is a 1st-level spell known only by the Cepheans. It works like
Pool Ward, but it
protects a Tone Node from being infected by Leviathan Spawn. This spell is not
really very useful as far as
I'm concerned; it's easy enough to just send some trained Floaters to attack the
infection before it grows
into a new spawn.
Star Disk is by far the most useful spell known by the Tarks. It will destroy
a structure or growth
at any distance (not spawners, however), so you don't have to risk your valuable
Floaters in a direct assault.
Awaken Spirit is a 2nd-level spell, known by the Dyla and Tarks. The target is
one of your Dojos.
All Floaters from that Dojo will be given additional hit points equal to their
base hit points. (For example:
The base hit points of a Dyla Summoner is 17. If it had only 11 hit points
left, and you cast this spell on its
Dojo, 17 more hit points would be added, giving it a total of 28 hit points.)
These hit points are
"permanent" until the Floater is damaged again.
Enchant Tribe is known to the Zygons and Tarks. It temporarily makes all your
to all harm. It's useful when you must send them into combat, or to pick up an
artifact surrounded by
Free Tone Pool is known by the Cepheans and Dyla. It summons the Tone Fury
(which looks like
a glowing magical bird) to destroy a Leviathan Spawner at any distance. By far
this is one of the most
Force of Will is known to the Tarks only. The target is one of your Dojos.
All Floaters from that
Dojo will temporarily have higher strength (more damage per attack) and skill
(more damage per attack).
Realm Transcend is a spell used by the Zygons and Dyla. The target is one of
your Dojos. It
temporarily shifts the Floaters of that Dojo into the next realm of existence,
allowing them to have better
effectiveness against certain creatures. Most useful on the higher difficulty
levels, where the effect of the
tides between the four realms is more pronounced.
Sky Stoner is also known only by the Tarks. The target is any Leviathan
creature. It calls down
celestial boulders that will totally destroy that creature. Very useful.
Stamina is known only by the Zygons. The target is one of your Dojos. This
allows the Floaters
from that Dojo to continue fighting without having to return to the Dojo to
resupply their Crystal Tone
(though they may still have to return to heal). Very useful in a pitched
Tone Pool Rebel is a spell used by the Cepheans. It temporarily paralyzes the
Spawner that you
use it on, so it can't create spores or new creatures.
Cadmus is a 3rd-level spell known by the Cepheans and the Tarks. It mesmerizes
creatures (both growths and creatures) so they turn their hostility randomly
against each other. Very useful.
Channel Chronomyst is known by the Zygons and Dyla. It temporarily doubles the
speed of all
your Floaters, both your Workers and your trained Floaters. Exceptionally
Chi Flare is a spell used only by the Zygons. No target is required; the area
of effect is centered
on the caster, shattering anything nearby. Rarely useful to me because I don't
let my mages get into front
Finally, Racial Memory is used only by the Cepheans. It temporarily shifts the
Floaters of a Dojo
into the previous realm of existence, which can change how effective they are
against certain creatures.
Most useful at the higher levels of difficulty.
Keep in mind that in a multi-player game of The Tone Rebellion, any spell that
targets a Dojo can
be used on the Dojos of another friendly tribe, though this is hard to
13. The Final Assault on Friid
The island of Friid, home of the Leviathan, can be tough, especially at the
higher levels of
difficulty. It has no less than six Spawners creating spores and creatures,
surrounded by dozens of growths.
The rune towers are also here; there is one rune tower corresponding to one of
the runes you have collected.
If possible, use long-range spells like Star Disk to destroy growths, Free Tone
Pool or Tone Pool Rebel to
destroy or paralyze the Spawners, or Cadmus to turn the growths and creatures
against each other.
If you don't have some of those spells, attacking from both sides is advisable.
There are three
Spawners on each side of the Leviathan, and the quicker you can kill them the
better. Once your Floaters
are no longer being threatened, send in the Awakened One to use the runes.
There is one rune for each
tower. As you use the runes, the towers are destroyed. Once all the towers are
destroyed, the Leviathan
will also be destroyed. Game over!
I hope this strategy guide helps you in your quest to defeat the Leviathan. If
you have any
questions, or need more help, I'm willing to try. Send comments and e-mail to:

1) I'm not sure how the range is measured; possibly in pixels. I also don't
know exactly how speed is
2) Remember the progression: Physical dominates Supernatural, Supernatural
Ethereal dominates Natural, and Natural dominates Physical. Physical may
dominate Ethereal, and
Supernatural may dominate Natural, depending on the tides between realms. This
means that some
creatures will be more or less resistant to your attacks.
3) This indicates the basic Hit Points and Strength of the Floaters. As they go
up in level, these two
values will also go up.
4) The Attack Charge indicates how many attacks that these Floaters may make
before they must return
to their Dojo to recharge. Usually, they retreat automatically when they are
down to 2 or 3 charges.

Table 3: Spell Descriptions
All spell effects (except for ones that completely destroy a spawner, growth,
or creature) are
temporary. The caster must have enough magic tone and tone crystals to cast the
spell (stored in the mage
tower he's from). Unless otherwise specified, spells that affect floaters (such
as Awaken Spirit) affect only
floaters from one dojo.

Table 5: Mystical Locations and Artifacts
All mystical locations require two artifacts to activate. These artifacts will
be randomly scattered
across the islands, so I can't tell you where to find them. The mystical
locations themselves will always be
on one specific island. Each mystical location you activate, gives you another
of the runes needed to defeat
the Leviathan. You do not have to find or deliver the artifacts in any
particular order, nor do you have to
activate the mystic locations in any particular order.
