The IPD Labs (I.P.D.ラボ, aipidi rabo?, lit. "IPD Laboratories") are a research center located in the deeper areas of the Second Tower of Ar tonelico, below the Slums and above Lakra. This place is only known to personnel of the Grand Bell of the highest ranks, and to members of the Sacred Army that have managed to extract information from the Grand Bell, and it's the final destination of the IPDs that are captured by the Grand Bell Knights during their containment missions, as they are used in experiments to increase their combat abilities. Given its top secret nature, the citizenry doesn't know anything about this place or the things that happen in it.


(more coming soon...)


The IPD Labs have a relatively simple layout, and therefore, navigating this place should cause absolutely no problems. However, it should be noted that there are a few treasures that need a second visit to this area to pick up, as the player will be kicked out once the plot advancement events are triggered. Likewise, a Dualithnode Crystal appears later in the game, but the player will have to defeat a Lv. 9 IPD first in order to pick it up.
