The Northtown Ruins are a dungeon in Secret of Mana. They are located on the outskirts of Northtown.

Story[edit | edit source]

After its trip through the Imperial sewers, Randi's party arrives in Northtown and makes a liaison with the Resistance leader Krissie. When Primm inquires as to the whereabouts of Dyluck, Krissie mentions that she saw a man by that name heading for the ruins as if under a spell. A girl was also traveling with him.

As the group investigates the ruins, they find Phanna mesmerized, just as the people in Pandora were when Randi passed through. Primm attempts to talk her out of the trance, but is brusquely rebuffed. Primm then pleads with Krissie to free her friend, to which Krissie obliges.

As they delve deeper into the ruins, the party hacks through a horde of monsters. At the temple's innermost levels, they square off with Doom's Wall that tries to crush them. Randi and the others are quick to crush it instead.

Dyluck stands at the inner sanctum, possessed of Thanatos's magic. As Primm tries to reason with him as well, she is sent to be drained of her soul. Randi and Popoi are both incensed by Dyluck's actions, and confront him. The two manage to break Dyluck free with Thanatos being kept busy with Primm; and Dyluck transfers his life force unto Primm, returning her to sense.

Frustrated and enraged, Thanatos realizes he is dealing with the latest Mana Knight, and sends out a Vampire to finish off the party. The beast, however, fails and is defeated.
