Seiken Densetsu 3 Story/Outline
Once, when the world was yet trapped in darkness, the goddess of Mana felled 8 incarnations of disaster that guided the world to destruction, the God-Beasts, with the Sword of Mana, and sealed them in 8 stones. And, as the darkness left, the world was created. The goddess of Mana turned herself into a tree, and fell asleep. Many years passed...
Due to the actions of some who plot to unleash the God-Beasts from the stones, obtain power surpassing even that of the gods, and make the world their own, conflict breaks out heralding the end of peace...
Mana is rapidly disappearing from the earth. Even the Mana Tree has begun to wither...
*Note: Due to the release of the english patch for the SD3 rom, some of the names of characters and locations have changed from their usual english counterpart name. If you are used to the names in the Japanese version such as Riesz (Lise), the names will be different here.*
In this adventure game, you have the choice of choosing three characters out of six before you begin. The character you first choose will determine the storyline as described further in the bosses section. In each storyline you will have to face the same early bosses and Mana Beasts, but at the end the story will change. There are three different endings of the game.
As the sequel to Secret of Mana, this game is actually a prequel for Secret of Mana, occuring thousands of years beforehand. You can tell this by the very different looking world map. This game is very easy to follow, having a very similar but harder battle mode to Secret of Mana. Each character will be on a quest for the Mana Sword for different reasons, and your goal is to stop the evil in the world that is trying to awaken the eight Mana Beasts from the Mana Stones to conquer the world.
You will first notice that there are three main armies who are trying to obtain the Mana Stones and the Mana Sword. They are the Magic Kingdom Altena, the Navarre Raiders and the Beast Kingdom. Each of these three are usually peaceful kingdoms, but there are three main sources of evil coming from them. Three individual evil beings are bent on obtaining the Mana Sword, and are using these kingdoms as their tools for success. Whichever character you choose as your main one will have one of three senarios played out, in which two of the armies will fail to gain the Sword and the third will be left for you to battle and defeat.
