Drop off the Soldier from Quest 03 and get your reward (150G and 4 Holy Water).

Go talk to the King. He tells you to see the Reverend in Aristo, and assigns Will and company to escort you. Now that Will has joined your party, and Stacia has left, this would be a good time to talk about Dedicated Party Members and Reputation Events.

Dedicated Party Members

Aside from the Hero, there are 6 other party members in the game who you have control over (i.e. you can change their Class, their equipment, skills, etc.) They are:

  • Stacia (the Princess)
  • Will (a rising Royal Guard)
  • Yuni (an orphan from the Desert Region)
  • Niecks (a failed weapon maker, looking for the strongest weapon ever)
  • Damia (second in command of the Kamur Band)
  • Pegoo (a strange creature...)

At certain points in the game, you will be able to recruit them into your party, and assign them as active party members by going to the tavern. For some parts of the game, you will have to accept other, "static" characters into your party - but whenever those static characters leave, you can put any of these 6 back in.

Since you can only have 3 party members in addition to your Hero, you'll have to choose which of these 6 members you want to use as your dedicated (aka most used) party members.

Reputation Events

For each of the dedicated party members, there are events in the game that will raise your reputation with them. Some of these events just happen as the story unfolds - but many of them will only happen if you have the right person in your party at the right time.

At the end of the game, if you've completed all the reputation events for a party member, you'll get to see an extra scene with them after the credits roll.

Throughout this walkthrough I will list the times when you should put a certain character in your party in order to get their reputation event.

Moving On...

Once you’ve left the throne room, go talk to Stacia in her bedroom. Listen to her story (select "Yes") to increase your reputation with her. Go talk to the King, the Handmaiden (in the library) and the Commander in Chief to accept their Quests.

Take Will to the School of Sorcery to increase your reputation with him. The treasure in town is in the pots around town, or in night stands or pots in homes and shops. Your next stop is Aristo, but before you go, you should complete the quests you’ve unlocked, except for Quest 05, which you won’t be able to complete for awhile yet.
