Introduction
____________

This is a version of the Ryo's notebook as it appears in ShenmueII.
The aim of this is to present a complete document of the notebook
that appears in the English version of Shenmue II.  This is also
available in Word format, in which it is much easier to read, and
can be downloaded from my site at
http://www.hostultra.com/~shenmuelegend/notebook2.zip


Every page in the notebook can hold five lines of text, differing
from the previous games eight as there are larger gaps between lines.
==== denotes a page break, where you turn over the page.
---- denotes a page break, where you are moving to the other side of
the page.

You can still get clues from fortune tellers but as there are a number
of them in the game, they appear as "*name of teller" in the notebook.

The Shenmue II notebook has 275 pages cover to cover (note: you can't
view the back cover) and is divided into five sections:
page 4: Yokosuka
page 12: Hong Kong
page 132: Kowloon
page 216: Guilin
page 236: Money Information

Note that the money conversation on page 11 is for the default game if
you do not load in a cleared file and also that an @ sign is used to
show when a Chinese symbol appears.

If you have got any more notes from Shenmue II, please let me know.
My email address is shenmuelegend@btopenworld.com
If you do so, can you please copy the notes exactly as they are in the
game so that the notebook is an exact copy.

My website also holds a version of the notebook from Shenmue I.
Please visit it at:  http://shenmuelegend.users.btopenworld.com
