This one's pretty neat. 8-) Anyway, you get to choose between four people to do a spy operation. Choosing Donfan gets you to a hilarious scene with the females of the Empire (I recommend doing this just to see it, then restart.) Choosing the crew member will result in his death... I'm not sure if this affects anything later on. Choosing Sendak gets you an extra scene. Choosing Matelite (Taicho will actually go) gets the same scene, but with an added bonus: before the chapter ends, you'll have a scene with Yoyo in which you can get your second Princess's ??? item. So I'd tell you to choose Taicho. In any case, after the longish scene, jump down to the deck. Go back inside and talk to the item salesman to get a Letter. Equip, buy, go back out, talk to Taicho (only if you picked him, but if you did, this is important!), feed, battle.

The battle here is pretty hilarious... if you've been feeding and fighting right, each of your dragons should have at least two elementals powered up to level 10, and if you've been feeding them mushrooms like a good boy they should have strong Life as well. You can almost sit back and let your dragons take care of everything themselves! 8-) That's almost a good idea because the going is so slow. No matter which side you choose it'll take you forever. One way goes through a poison swamp; even if you clean it by using White Drug on it, you can still only move one square per turn through the swamp. O_o Going down the left side puts you in a strange corridor; it closes every other turn, and any characters inside will be trapped and unable to move (they can still use techs, though). I say just put your dragons on Go! and see if you can catch up with them by going through the corridor. Along the bottom there's another poison swamp, but there isn't any real way around this one. However, the bottom side of the swamp is only two squares wide instead of one. You'd still have to queue up to go through it... anyway, let your dragons take care of this battle. ^^; One more thing: don't hit the little orange rock-looking things with any attack spells or techs, or they'll spew out a poison swamp!
If you picked Taicho for your spy, you'll have an extra scene now. Keep talking to Yoyo till she tells you to "get out", then she'll go into the terrace. Go into her bed, face down, and hit A for your second Princess's ??? item! Follow her into the terrace and talk to her from below. After the conversation, follow her back to her bed. Try to follow her back to the terrace, then exit the room.
