 He it a giant living on the
Savannah of the New World.

 He was born "Nathaniel
William Adams" in England.
He was nicknamed "Rock"
because of his strength. His
father ran a curio store
specializing in rare weapons
and was always taken with
strange antiquities. He had a
loving mother and with it, an
idyllic childhood; until that
fateful day...

"Rock, look at the "SoulEdge."
Isn't it a beauty?"

 His father's wish had finally
been fulfilled. He showed his
son the sword in the ship's
cabin. "At last, "SoulEdge,"
the hero's sword..."

 The storm that buffeted the
ship scared young Rock to the
point of tears. His Father was
too excited to even notice.
His mother, frustrated, led
Rock to the hammock. Just then...

 Cannon fire sounded and the
ship rocked from a direct hit!
Rock screamed in terror. His
Father and Mother held him
tight as the cries of the crew
echoed: "Pirates!"

 The Spanish pirate Cervantes,
confederate of Vercci, the
Italian "Merchant of Death,"
had started his attack. His
goal was none other than

storeroom to hide the"Soul

Before they could, the ship

 Rock awoke on an unfamiliar
shoreline, alone

 At first, Rock cried out,
looking for his parents.
Eventually he learned to live
off the land to survive;
discarding former habits and

It was at this point that he
first came upon other living
people, a tribe native to the
area. Afraid of the "white
giant," they would not approach
him. The child Bangoo, an
orphan of tribl warfare, was
the sole consolation for Rock,
who was now an adult.

 From the natives, Rock
re-learnt about the "people
across the ocean." Faded
memoires of his parents and
even "SoulEdge" returned.

 He remembered having heard
the words "SoulEdge." It was a
word he had heard often as a
child. At bedtime, mealtime,
while being held in someone's
arms ... a hazy image formed
in his mind. If he could find
the "SoulEdge," perhaps he
could recover his own past.
He might even find his

 With his giant ax in hand,
Rock set out for the land
across the sea.

 After taking leave of Bangoo,
he set out on his quest to find
"SoulEdge," the key to his
memories. Rockeventualyy came
across something strange.

"What's that?"

 In this sacred site, Rock
caught sight of an inhuman

 Suspicious, he climbed to
the top of one of the
monoliths, where he spied a
man holding a strange weapon.

 The man whirled as Rock
approached and assuming a
strange position, suddenly

 Carrying out the will of his
dead master, Vercci, Voldo set
out to find the "SoulEdge."
While his sight and mind have
decayed with long years of
lowless living, he still wields
a quick sword!

 Defeat the enemy!

Rock pushed Voldo from the
edge of the monolith. The
strange man dropped a parchement
as he plunged to his fate.
Rock picked up the piece of

 At first, the letters
appeared to be meaningless
Finally, he realized that
the letters were a language.

 "S-O-U-L Edge!"

He realized that this note
was an important clue in his
search for the SoulEdge.

 Carrying a "Stone Club,"
chiseled from one of the
monoliths, he immediately
set out in the direction
of the setting sun.

The Shrine of Confined Demons

 A haunted shrine stood in a
bamboo grove. It had been
built by Taki to imprison evil
spirits. A small shrine holds
the ghost's haunted weapon.

 Rock entered the shrine and
found the weapon at the altar,
as he grabbed it, he passed out.

 When he came to, many people
wielding swords stooed before

"Kill them, cut them down!"

A voice echoed in his head.
Rock had become a homicidal

 At the end of the fierce
fighting, Rock was released
from the ghost's spell. He
picked up the "Crescent Ax"
from the shrine's altar.

   The Desert

 A desert region in Central
Asia. For the traveller who
had avoided the perils of the
ocean journey to cross the
continent by land, this was
the most difficult passage.

 The ruins of an ancient
Chinese citadel lay behind,
but nothing else was to be
seen on this desolate road.

 Rock searched for the
legendary weapon in the ruins
of the citadel. However, the
weapon had already been
unearthed by someone else.

 Footprints led from the
excavation site. In the
distance he spied the images
of a man and woman.

Rock yelled.

"I need that weapon!"

treasure of the millionaire

solitary isle. Booby-traps such
as 50 m deep pits and water

 Following the instructions

in the Secret Treasury at the

 Rock defeated Taki despite
his wounds. He took up the

weapons storehouse.

 Rock discovered a journal
kept in the storehouse.

 The journal contained a list
of the people commissioned by
Vercci, the owner of the
storehouse, with the search
for the "SoulEdge."

 The lsit contained the name
of the msot feared pirate in
history, Cervantes.

"Pirates ... "

 He recalled "that night," a
faint memory of which had
remained in the back of his mind.

 A sudden explosion, the jet
black sea, the skull and
crossbones flag approaching
the sinking ship ... "Could
it be the same pirate?"

 He decided to track down

   The Final Battle

 Cervantes... the pirate who
had terrorized the Atlantic.
While gathering scraps of
information, Rock visited the
Spanish port that had been
the pirate's base in search
of more reliable leads

 The area was quiet, with
no sign of people.

 As he walked around the
port, Rock was overcome by a
strange sensation he had not
experienced before, His mind
became hazy and his body
naturally led him towards a
certain ship ....

 When he camee to his senses,
several ships rocked before
him. Upon seeing a flag on
one ship, Rock's eyes opened

"Could it be ... THAT flag?"

Rock recalled that nightmare
night he could never forget.

"Could it be, this very ship
... me, my parents ...?"

 Rock climbed onto the deck.
Suddenly, a voice boomed from
behind, seeming to shake the

"I've been waiting for you.
I'll sacrifice your innocent
soul to my sacred swords!"

 A man grasping a strange
sword in both hands stood
there. In contrast to his
glittereing eyes and sword,
his pallid face showed no
sign of life.

"Pirates ... Cervantes ...

 Rock, with a war-cry,
sprung upon the man!

 Defeat the enmey!

 The pirate lay dead. His
parents were avenged. As his
large hands grasped SoulEdge,
the memory of a child terrified
by the storm came vividly

 His mother's smiling face,
his father's strong arms.
Warm food and a soft bed.
Memories of his parents'

 His memories melded with
those of the orphan Bangoo.

 Rock remembered the small
hands grasping his fur
sleeves, alleviating his own
sadness. Through the small
child, he had forgotten his
own pain.

 Perhaps his own parents
were still alive somewhere.
But Bangoo's father and
mother were not.


 Rock chose future happiness
over past memories.

"I must look after him. I must
return to Bangoo!"

 Thinking of his "family,"
Rock started his long journey
back to the New World.
