Landau is armed with a sword for close combat, and a bow for ranged combat. The Kingdom of Baljinya has towns and villages where Landau can stop to rest (restoring his health) and gather information from the people. There are also castles which can only be entered after completing certain tasks. Each time the player has the opportunity to speak with a character, he should talk with the character several times in succession in order to get all possible messages. If he does not get all possible messages, bosses and secret paths in the game will not appear. If something doesn't appear for the player, he will most likely need to speak with a character, or speak with a character additional times. There are different kinds of terrains between those villages, towns and castles. Flatlands, dark forests, mountains and swamps make up the rest of the landscape.
