Tm Setting 

Some time ago, the Beast Lord Maletoth ruled 
the land with a dark malevolence. Maletoth 
created a huge army of evil Beast warriors to 
carry out his corrupt wishes, spreading sorrow 
and misery like a dark miasma across the land. 

The strongest and brightest of warriors were 
pressed into service as Maletoth’s Beast army. 
Held fast by both chains and magic, no human 
could resist the evil forces which gradually 
twisted the unfortunate victim’s spirit and 
countenance to do Maletoth’s bidding and be¬ 
come his faithful servant. 

You were once the pawn of Maletoth, suffering 
at the hands of his evil mages and their dark 
arts as they performed their hideous transfor¬ 
mation, and making you into a model Beast 
Messenger. Then, one fateful day you happened 
to look upon the face of your father as he was 
being dragged forward for execution. Seeing his 
tortured image shook your clouded mind free, 
and revealed the truth about your past. As the 
sacrificial blade tore into his body and he 
screamed his last breath, you vowed to exact a 
heavy retribution for slaughtering your father 
and corrupting your mind and body. They would 
pay for their cruelty! 

Using your Beast-like powers you scoured the 
land in search of the Beast Lord and vengeance. 


Fighting your way through a seemingly endless 
barrage of adversaries, you struggled valiantly 
towards a confrontation with Zelek, the Beast 
Mage. A tremoundous battle ensued from 
which you eventually emerged the victor. 

Zelek’s defeat unraveled his horrible spell over 
you, freeing you of the horrible Beast body. 
Victory was fleeting, though, tempered by the 
sinking sensation that Zelek was sure to return. 

Late one night, a terrible thunderstorm shat¬ 
ters the normally tranquil night sky. After 
tossing and turning, you fall into a fitful sleep, 
and enter the dreamy state commonly known as 



The Bream 

A blanket of pitch black drapes over the land, 
blending shapes into a mass of indefinable dark¬ 
ness, occasionally shattered by shafts of brilliant 

In the manic dancing of the diamond-white 
tongues of energy, one shape stands out in stark 
contrast from the rest of the landscape: a tower, 
so tall that its pinnacle seems to reach into the 
heart of the storm. The single window near its 
top is almost as black as the surroundings, but 
closer study would reveal a faint glow from 
inside, and a humanoid shape staring out over 
the landscape. 

Darkness is Zelek’s ally, the only place in which 
he finds solace, yet the increasingly frequent 
bolts of dazzling lightning do little more than 
punctuate his lonely musings. As he sits, deep 
in thought, his chair seems less comfortable 
than usual, but then what manner of being could 
be comfortable with the heavy burden of the 
Beast Lord’s disappointment? 

His recent clash with the former Beast warrior 
was, at the time, more an annoyance than a 
serious setback. Zelek is certain that the 
warrior’s victory was due more to incredible luck 
than skill. Unfortunately, Maletoth, Beast Lord, 
cares very little for explanation, or for failure. 
Maletoth has made it painfully clear that Zelek’s 
defeat at the hands of a mere mortal warrior 
was unacceptable, and that if Zelek did not 
remedy the situation, the position of Beast Mage 
would become available...probably through the 
sudden disappearance of the current occupant. 

To add insult to injury, the loss of Maletoth’s 
prize warrior messenger meant that Zelek would 

have to personally meld a human child to fill the 
position, to insure that the child was appropri¬ 
ately ‘trained’ as quickly as possible. 

Any humanoid child would suffice to provide 
Zelek with raw materials for another warrior 
messenger. But Zelek’s defeat demands retribu¬ 
tion. His lackies are even now searching the 
land in an effort to find a suitable candidate, but 
time marches on and Maletoth is not well known 
for his patience. 

As he contemplates entering the search himself, 
one of Zelek’s many underlings crawls into his 
presence and, grovelling on the floor in a pa¬ 
thetic attempt at homage, tells him of the birth 
of a child many leagues to the north . . . “On the 
outskirts of Deadwood Forest there’s a small 
cottage beneath a ridge of granite. She lies 

Doubting the suitability of a female for the role 
of warrior messenger, Zelek enters a shallow 
trance of clairvoyance, and sends his thoughts to 
the area described by the whimpering subordi¬ 

Transporting his mind into the cottage via the 
narrow chimney he looks down on the baby from 
the darkness of his storm-torn tower. A burst of 
revelation suddenly hits him as he examines the 
child’s aura, and with a single blink, reunites his 
thoughts and physical self. 

Standing, he pushes the servant aside, strides to 
the window and jumps through, plummeting 
towards the river far below... 

Long before he hits the broiling, dark waters, 


Zelek effortlessly metamorphoses into his Beast 
persona. Beating huge leathery wings against 
the howling wind, he quickly gains altitude to be 
amidst the thunder and lightning that seems to 
guide him unerringly towards the lonely cottage. 

Landing on a high ridge, he resumes his human¬ 
oid form to look down on the cottage, to confirm 
his earlier findings. A rare grim smile spreads 
across Zelek’s stony face as he contemplates the 
pain he’s about to inflict on a certain ex-warrior 

An angry bolt of lightning hails Zelek’s transfor¬ 
mation back to his Beast form and, wings spread 
wide, he glides do wn to the roof of the cottage, 
screaming against the thunder. 

Pausing for but a brief moment to bask in glori¬ 
ous feelings of retribution, he smashes a 
clenched talon through the fragile roof, and 
reaches past the terrified mother into the crib to 
grab the baby. The mother can only scream, 
oetrified by fear as she watches the horror un¬ 

Holding the baby tightly in his talons, Zelek 
launches himself into the night, his thoughts 
filled with the sweet taste of revenge...

Beast II: The Shadow Deepens 

With a start, you awaken from your clairvoyant 
dream, drenched with sweat from your night¬ 

Your baby sister has been captured by the Beast 
Mage! Stolen from her crib, she’s been taken to 
Kara-Moon, a strange and hostile place, and 
Zelek’s stronghold. She is to be subjected to 
years of forced labor and mind control until 
eventually taking your place as warrior messen¬ 
ger to the Beast Lord. This must not be allowed 

At first late, you scrape together your few mate¬ 
rial posessions, and raise enough gold to pur¬ 
chase a mace. Using the last of your gold, you 
buy passage to Kara-Moon on a Tragon; one of 
the few mercenary creatures willing to travel to 
such a dangerous place in the heart of 
Maletoth’s kingdom. 

Following a journey fraught with peril, you 
eventually reach Kara-Moon and, armed only 
with a mace, prepare for battle. Ironically, 
without the benefit of the Beastly powers you 
fought so hard to shed, will you be strong 
enough to succeed? 




The warrior is controlled using a single Sega CD 
Control Pad in control port 1. The following

You will be exploring the lands of Kara-moon, 
visiting its inhabitants, and looking for informa¬ 
tion regarding the whereabouts of Zelek. 

The land of Karamoon is large and fraught with 
dangers. Some of the inhabitants will be openly 
hostile, as they protect their territory, or act on 
their orders from Zelek and Maletoth. 

Beware of the myriad traps which await you, 
and gather information and items whenever 
possible...except of course, when it doesn’t help 
your cause. 

Occasionally, as you trek through Kara-Moon, 
you will run across an animated movie se¬ 
quence. Pay attention to these, as they may 
provide valuable clues. If you wish to skip the 
movie (for instance, if you’ve seen it already), 
simply press the START button. 


To save your sister you must fight your way 
across the dark land of Kara-Moon to reach the 
Beast Mage and defeat him in battle once again. 

You will confront many creatures on your jour¬ 
ney, some of whom may have information for you 
while others are bent on your destruction. 
Physical contact with enemies (or their weapons) 
depletes your life energy. 

Collectable weapons are scattered throughout 
Kara-Moon as are other useful objects and gold. 

Gold can be used to purchase weapons or food to 
restore lost energy. It may also gain you access 
to otherwise unattainable places. 

Some of the puzzles and obstacles you encounter 
may require help from other characters - volun¬ 
tary or otherwise - to overcome them. 

Throughout the game, you’ll collect objects that 
will help you on your quest - both weapons and 
other, more ‘subtle’ objects. It is up to you to 
discover just what they do and how they can be 
best used.
