"Where do I find a stripped ribbon for the Ant Lion Man sidequest? - (Submitted by smash fanatic) Chesedonia sells these after you complete Radiation Gate. Stripped Ribbons are sold in Chesedonia before the war starts, but they're very expensive (several hundreds of thousands of gald), so you'll need to transfer gald if you want to buy it beforehand."
after your group splits into 2 and you have to run to chesedonia avoiding battles, when your party meets back up in chesedonia, you can buy them for <50k.
in gbness's faq, it mentions if you save your rebirth dolls and sell them at engeve during the split, you can get loads of gald; actually, if you wait til you get to chesedonia, you can sell them for double what you get in engeve (i think rebirth dolls sell for 125k apiece, and i had 2 at that point in time).
It's been a long time since I played this game, but if I remember right this is a good way to make a kick ass profit.
Buy as much food as you can before you reach Akzeriuth.
After it falls, sell it in town for a huge profit. This is the only time in the game when this opportunity is available. Prices will be back to normal after you leave.
As I said before, it's been a LONG time, and that was a rushed game. I could be wrong on this one. I don't know when I'll have the time to play it again, so if some one else could confirm this, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
Homework and Depression are two extremely different things. Depression can lead to death, homework just leads to bad grades. And depression. -Pottytime.
