Final Fantasy IV/Beginning to Kaipo
The introduction cut scene introduces you to Cecil, leader of the Red Wings of Baron, who have just completed a raid on the town of Mysidia in order to obtain a crystal. Cecil returns to Baron where he confronts the King, who then sends him and his friend Kain to deliver a package to the town of Mist.
 Cecil's Room
When you gain control of Cecil, go out the door immediately south of you to reach a room with visible treasure chests behind a wall. Hit the switch to access the treasure (an Ether, a Tent and 480 Gil). You can explore the castle for more information, but that's it for treasure. To proceed, go up the staircase on the far left side of this room. Continue through until you are outside. Go between the two parts of the castle until you are interrupted by Cid. After he leaves go through the door on the left at the back wall of the castle (the rounded tower). Climb the stairs until you are at the top, and climb into the bed.
During the night Rosa will talk with you. When you wake up, you will be automatically joined up with Kain and led outside the castle. After viewing the legend, you will have control of your character. At this point you can explore the town of Baron and pickup any items you may want and gain information from the townspeople.
 Find Mist Cave
Southwest of Baron, beyond the desert, is a small octagonal forest. Inside, search the tall grass for a hidden chest with Gysahl Greens inside. You can also talk to a yellow chocobo to get a free ride on the overworld map, or you can walk from here on foot. Head northwest until until you reach a mountain cave. Enter the cave.
 Traverse Mist Cave
Traversing this cave is fairly simple as there are not many ways to go. Collect the treasure chests along the way for valuable items, and make your way to the end of the cave.
 Mist Dragon
Just as you are about to leave the cave you are interrupted by someone warning you not to go any further. When asked if you would like to continue, choose Yes and you will be entered into a battle with D.Mist. This battle is fairly simple; attacking with Cecil and Jumping with Kain should defeat it fairly quickly. However when the dragon turns into mist (pictured to right), choose the "Parry" command or the dragon will retaliate with a strong attack.
 Head to Mist
When you are outside the cave head to the right and enter the Town of Mist. When you enter you are automatically brought into a cut scene in which the package opens and burns the town. When a girl attacks you, you are knocked out and awaken without Kain. You decide to carry the injured girl to aid.
 Head to Kaipo
When you regain control of the player, head to the East until you reach the desert. Continue east through the desert until you reach a small lake and a town. Enter the town, and you will automatically be brought to the Inn.
 Battle the Soldiers
During the night some soldiers from Baron come and attack you. Fight, them and they are defeated easily. When you defeat them, you speak with Rydia, then go back to sleep. When you awake the next morning leave the Inn.
 Find Rosa
Go to the house in the most northeast house in the town. There you will find Rosa. Speak to her and the man in the room to learn that you must find the SandRuby in the cave of the Antlion in order to save her. Once you hear this you can leave the town.
 Go To Watery Pass
Once you have left the town head northeast, through the desert until you reach a cave. Enter this cave.
