The Village and the Ice is a Quest in Secret of Mana (SOM).


In order to find the Fire Seed missing from the palace, the party uses Cannon Travel to head for Ice Country.

The tropics within Ice Country's Crystal Forest are said to be a summer paradise compared to the freezing countryside. Randi and his friends decide to search for the Fire Seed there.

Fighting Boreal Face[edit]

  • This fight very much mirrors the Tropicallo fight in the Dwarf Village.
  • While Boreal Face is in its shell, it will be invulnerable to damage from weapons, but magic can hurt it still.
  • Your party should focus on using melee weapons against Boreal Face since it can be difficult to hit with magic.
  • Use any attacks spells that you have at Lv. 3 when you can to do moderate damage to the Boss.
  • Cast any spells on it while Boreal Face is still in its protective bulb.
  • Boreal Face will be moving around the arena in the Counter-Clockwise pattern.
  • It will also be spawning Buds that will result spiked tendrils to go after the party members.
  • Follow Boreal Face around, using your weapons as your main attacks.
  • Use Cure Water if the party falls below 50% health.
  • It will take time, but Boreal Face will fall and you will get a Bow Orb!
