To Gustave's Stronghold (1305) is the # 23rd scenario of Wil Knights' side of the story in SaGa Frontier 2.

"Ginny's party enters Hahn Nova, the stronghold of the man who calls himself Gustave"


Preceeded: Pursuing the Egg

Unlocks: Battle of South Moundtop* **

(* If completed Wil scenarios: "Showdown! Alexei (1239)", "Wil vs. Egg (1257)", "Deadly Battle with the Egg (1291)"

** If completed at least 18 of Gustave's scenarios and all other Wil scenarios than those listed above)


When you arrive in Hahn Nova you can pick which district to visit (as dictated by the events in Gustave's scenario "Construction of Hahn Nova (1249)") to do some shopping and equipment upgrading (depending on the districts/shops available). Once you have explored the city as much as you like head to the Commons, where Wil instantly recognises the presence of the Egg with Fake Gustave. As there are too many guards to confront Fake Gustave you must make a quick escape.

Explore the caves in the northwest of the field to find scores of treasure, however, upon leaving the cave some of the guards have caught up to you and will foce you into battle.

Continue heading south, away from the city, until you are safely out of reach of Fake Gustave's forces.

Optional: For an extra challenge, and special Quell sword, Beowulf, examine the glowing tree along the way. You will be attacked by a Deity and 3 Crimes. Defeat them to claim the sword, but you are then attacked by Sargon, the Fire Lord, who can be a challenging opponent due to his high HP.

Additionally, examine the well to fight a Dynasty Hopper (King of the Frogs) for the chance to win the Golden Axe, the only infinite durability Axe in the game.
