I. Version History.

Version 1.0 130106. - First version with complete list of every secret chest
in the game.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

II. Introduction.

Magical Starsign is a charming, if somewhat unremarkable, jrpg. One notable
thing it has going for it is the sheer number of secrets stashed away in the
game, several which have yet to be covered here on Gamefaqs despite the fact
that the game has been out for over six years in the United States and for
over five years in Europe. One of the cooler and better implemented features
are the secret chests, or alignment chests, hidden throughout the game. While
playing through the game, you'll likely find a few of them here and there, 
but without lots of patience (or a handy guide), you are probably going to
miss most. As an obsessed completist, I find such a fate appalling, so I
combed through every inch of the game to make sure I got them all. 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

III. How to find a secret chest.

To find the secret chests, you need to enter the area they are in while the
planet you are on is aligned with its aura. For the light and dark planets,
you need to enter the area during the day and night, respectively. Unless 
you love to wait for the planets to move, I'd recommend that you save the
treasure hunting for when you have learned Celestial Swap.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

IV. SPOILER WARNING. 

This list has light spoilers for most parts of the game. While it doesn't
specifically refer to the story, some of the listed locations will give you
not too subtle hints about what's going to happen. None of the chests are
missable, so you can go back to pick them up later if you missed them the
first time.
