Phantasy Star II, released in 1989, introduces us to the anti-utopian world of Mota, now dominated by the Mother Brain computer. Rolf, a government agent, is assigned the task of finding out why Mother Brain is malfunctioning, and yet his role in the destiny of Algo is far, far greater than anyone could imagine. Anyone, save one lone Esper. As the genetic construct Nei, the soldier Rudo, and others join him, can he topple the tyranny of Mother Brain and free Algo from an unholy evil?

Rolf and his friends, tired of all the violence they've seen, decide to take a pacifist route to save the Algol system with zero bloodshed. This run improves the author's previous run by 13.31 seconds by saving a trip to the armor shop and instead injecting the Carbonsuit (the item that triggers the ending) into inventory at the storage building. For more details, see the author's notes. For more details on the main ideas behind the glitches in this run, read the older run's submission notes.
