MARDEK RPG: Chapter 3Other Games


The third chapter in the story of MARDEK. Mardek is now a Royal Knight, who's sent on various missions for the King. Of course, things aren't that simple... And Rohoph's still alive; the Governance de Magi can't be havin' with that.

Chapter 3 includes oodles more party members, and less linear gameplay. Exciting.
It took forever to make - three years! - because I recoded the engine from scratch, which took a while and many failed attempts, and removed a lot of enthusiasm that I had for the game.

This chapter contains 40+ hours of gameplay, and includes remade versions of the first two chapters.

This is a question to both you (users) and Rating Orb A β Pseudolonewolf.
I recently made a thread in the MARDEK category, and is on this [LINK] .

I'm curious because I noticed that the soul-sealing spell, and the writing around the crystal-mosters (emeralds, fire-opal, ruby, turquoise and so on) is in hebrew. If anyone can read hebrew, please can they translate it. If Rating Orb A β Pseudolonewolf is reading this, then do you know what it means? Or was it some arcane-looking language that looks good?

Um, I'm not fluent in Hebrew, but I can read it, and I have a Hebrew dictionary at my disposal. If you would provide the screens, I could try to translate it for you.

Oh good! I will get some to you in the next few days; hang in there! I will send you a few screenshots of the enemies and endings, but right now I am about to go to Hereford for the BJC Junior Nationals! Hooray! Wish me luck, I'll send you the pictures from a few days to about a week. I'm just curious that's all, if it means nothing, then I am sorry I wasted your time. Thanks again!

Hey guys, can u tell me how to defeat Animus.
Man I've tried everything but that spirit always attacked me with the Thauma vortex whenever its HP low.
I've equiped Legion with Candiathrope and make Mardek resists almost all elements except Thauma.
Also I've tried using Gloria's Whirpool to make its SPR low but it somehow seems not working and Elwyen's Runic Raphsody also didnt change the number of damage at all.
Pls, I just dont know what to do.

It is likely to be a glitch. Gloria's Whirlpool worked perfectly for me.

Make Four Astral Wanderer's garbs, don't bother with any other elemental resistances. After that, I'm not sure what the deal is with whirlpool not working, since that's what I did, but you can also use Legion's Fairy Dust skill if you want to do that. Apart from that, just get as much HP and MDEF boosts as possible outside of the Astral Wanderer's garbs, since the Aether elemental attacks will then heal you for a large percentage of your HP while the elemental vortices all do the same damage as before.

Basically, get as much HP as possible, and make four Astral Wanderer's Garbs.

Also, couple of things:
Try to go for a physically based party, since Animus can down your SPR by a LOT (Solaar's HP sucks, so don't bother with grafting).

Animus? A toughy if you don't use the right strategy:
1) I highly suggest crafting magic drinks in Gloria's shaman cauldron and saving them. They are vital to winning. Next, have Solaar, Elywyn, and Sharla in your party. Make sure you give each member high aether resistance before the battle.
2) Before the battle, give Elywynn a Magic stole, so her spirit gets really high. Give Elywynn the survivor skill (and de-equip the dodge 50% or whatever for this battle) and aether resistant equipment. Give her the astral harp, which you get by returning fairies to the fairy in Lifewood. Animus usually won't kill you on his first attack, and he also won't use his uber cheap spirit lowering move until he's used a few omega soul storms.
3) The reason the damage isn't changing with runic rhapsody is that you haven't boosted her spirit high enough! Look at Elywynn's stats after each turn in battle and throw magic drinks at her until you can boost her spirit to 100. If you run out of magic drinks, use Solaar's spirit graft.
4) Sharla has a speed boosting move, which you should use on Solaar. The higher Solaar's speed, the better. Give Solaar a stole of health before the battle, so he doesn't die in one hit. Also, give him high aether resistance and high magic defense. Keep using spirit graft on Elywynn, and if your spirit is getting low with Solaar, use spirit graft on Solaar himself so he doesn't run out of MP.
5) If you want, give Mardek the scarab of health, which you get by returning fairies, the cursed blade, and anything else. Mardek will deal Dark damage to Animus, but if you have soul strike equipped, you will deal light damage with him. Either way, he will heal every attack he does. If you want Mardek to deal light and dark damage individually, give Mardek soul strike, but MISS the action command to deal dark damage, HIT the action command to deal light damage.
6) Give Mardek the astral wanderers garb, and also give him the magic drinks. He or Sharla should be the ones throwing them at Elywynn.
7) Do NOT under ANY circumstances put up a shield or magic shield!!!! Animus has a shield breaker move that deals thauma damage and breaks the shield. It also virtually kills all your party members in one hit. Also, don't use put the haste effect on anyone unless you have some air nulls, which will prevent Animus's delay buster from doing any damage. Still, I don't suggest putting up haste anyway since it is a risk.
8) Gloria is optional to put in your party, as her whirlpool and nulls are quite useful. However, Animus has a LOT of spirit, so I don't recommend trying that strategy of lowering his spirit. You could also put Mereador in your party, craft some rainbow juice, and potion spray it on the entire party.
9) By now you shouldn't have much trouble, but just remember to bring along Phoenix downs and Phoenix pinions. They will get you out of very sticky situations.

If this doesn't work, grind like hell. Good luck!

I'll just add to the already relatively sound advice given that you don't absolutely need any characters in your party besides Elywyn (for her song that splits damage evenly among all your party members, this is critical) and either Solaar or Gloria (for a better healer). I beat both his spirit and body with Ssleck, Solaar, and Elywyn.

My strategy is to resist all elements but the big problem is its thauma attack! You know, you have to be lucky to win. I seriously was lucky. it did not use the thauma attack.

A lot of people have been experiencing these problems it seems. Try updating your flash player or Chrome. Otherwise you might have to switch browsers. I would recommend Firefox over IE, even though it's been proved that IE works, you still have the sticky keys problem.

Mardek...It's been awhile since I last played it because Karnos was getting me frustrated with the fact that it seemed like the wretched thing was saying, "Ha! You cannot defeat me. Am I too mighty for you? I know I am..." and what-not. I despise the thing with every fiber of my being. Any who, I didn't mean to rant on about how hard it is to crush the thing. I meant for this comment to merely praise the fact that Pseudo created such a work of art.

It's so in-depth and I always look around to learn new things like, "Is there is a description for something that I didn't find out yet?" Because I love everything about this game down to its descriptions or, "What new strategy can I develope from losing to so-and-so?" Just thinking about the game makes me want to play it. ( I should start getting into the habit of playing it again.)

So um, I guess I'll go on now about the fact that Pseudo put every single "this-and-that" into the game so that I don't ( and never will be) thinking about how he should have done whatever to make it better. It's the best that it'll ever be, a completely amazing game that shows a testament to how much blood, sweat and tears ( hopefully not blood though) that Pseudo has poured into every single pixel of this wonderful game. In short well, this game is awesome, touching, awesome, deep, awesome, moving, awesome, challenging, awesome, inspiring, aweome, awesome, awesome, ( did I mention awesome?) And AWESOME!

Ah Mardek 3. The reason I discovered this site. And replayed all three chapters multiple times (due to one tremendously horrible history delete mistake on my part.)

I have successfully after around 40 hours of gameplay for all three chapters, Mardek capping off at level 44, with the Annihilator dead (both Animus and Karnos), Legion with all of his abilities, every medal possible, and me with an average level of around 25. I have learned that Mardek is the most versatile player, and that certain other characters need each other to become a powerful team together through my own experimenting. in other words many many deaths.

What can I say about this game that it deserves?

Precious little. It has been quite an experience. I love Rpg's, have since I was about 10, but this is the best I have every played. The story-line is well developed, the Characters believable and lovable (especially Mardek, he's hilarious), the villains are phenomenal and very intelligent (nothing is worse then a stupid villain), and this game is completely unpredictable. It's exactly what you want out of a game in every possible way.

My only complaint is that I was too silly to look for this magnificent site until I joined a few months ago. I have now tried several others of these most excellent games. Keep 'em coming Pseudo, I wait for Maismon with high expectations that I am sure you will completely blow away.

I hope, that in MARDEK 4, or maybe even in the future chapters of MARDEK, you can play as multiple characters, each with his or her own unique adventure, meeting someplace to fight the final boss.
I imagine this would be possible with Gloria, as she is the shaman and responsible for things happening in Canonia. Maybe she interpreted some strange activity going off somewhere? She could've contacted Elwyen and she would've gone off to investigate
With reference to Vehrn, he may realize that Vudu is up to something, despite his self-righteousness and blind faith, that doesn't compel too much thinking. He might have done some secret work until he could expose what he was doing. Then he might return to the Lost Monastery after beating him.
Solaar could stick with Mardek and Rohoph. They might go off to return the Elemental Crystals, before being defeated by Steele. When Lone Wolf or Deugan hears of this, he'll go to free Emela and Mardek and Solaar. Or maybe the Fig elemental person from Aru could've gone off in search for Solaar because he hadn't returned after so long.
Mereador might go off on another adventure with Legion to help him make some other experiment or something.
In all, I think that there's a lot of potential for this game.

I'm trying to beat MARDEK 3 again. However I'm at the most detestable point in the story. The Water Temple. Ugh!
That puzzle there is so difficult. And I died. I meant to heal myself before I battle the Master Crystal or whatever it's called. Sadly, I didn't. And died. Which was annoying, because now I had to restart at the time when I went to the Goznor Shaman to get Oxyale and stuff. I had actually gotten two of the items needed for Legion and I had had that Scrumptious Cake exchanged and the whole of Crimson Peak explored.
Now I'm really angry. And annoyed. And angry.
I won't be playing this again for quite some time, I'm sure.

I know it's really, really stupid. I actually became a little overconfident, and thought that no monster could beat me. Apparently doing a one-on-one battle with the Master Stone will not turn out well. Sigh. Now I have to go explore Lifewood. For the second, more torturous time. Oh the madness!

Hey thanks so much Chimto0.

You are seriously a life-saver.

Gosh am I so pleased, I can't stop crying. I'd give you a hug if I was there with you. Whereever you are. Sigh.

It really helps to know so much about computers. It is something at which I do NOT show very much interest unlike other fanatics who spend their lives in some dingy corner of their room stuck to the screen. I mean a cousin of mine, Ali. Not Mr. Pseudolonewolf. Someone might misunderstand, gosh. I'm very well addicted to some games there though. Especially MARDEK, Fighunter and Wizard101. So there's a lot to keep me busy.
I have also spend a whole lot of time into MARDEK and wish it were saveable on any hardcopy as backup in case the one here got deleted for any terribly monstrous cause.
I spent one entire day finishing MARDEK 2, allowing MARDEK to level up to level 19 before continuing.
Thanks again.
Nice to get that response you've always wanted.
