    This Quest guide written for both the US Castlevania: Portrait of Ruins
    and the Japanese Akumajo Dracula: Gallery of Labyrinth. 
    I have used the english and japanese names accordingly for the two
    different versions.
    
    In order to display the Japanese text properly you need to set your browser
    or text editor to Shift JIS encoding.
    
    I hardly have time to update this guide, so it may take some time 
    for a newer version to be put up.
    
    This guide is FULL OF SPOILERS!!!!

    ==========================
    General Quests Information
    ==========================
    
    Quests are something new in he Castlevania series. Once you meet Wind, 
    he will give you various "quests" that you can choose from when you talk to
    him. 
    
    At any one time, the Wind's Quest menu will only show a maximum 5 quests. 
    If you accepted all of the current 5 quests, you have to complete at least 
    one of them before a new quest will show up.
    
    Completing quests will get you various items and spell rewards. Some quests
    are related and you need to complete the first one before the next one will 
    appear. An example of this is quest no. 13, 14, 16 and 21. You have to 
    complete quest 13 before 14 will appear, even if you have less than 5 quests 
    on Wind's Quest menu.
    
    When you finish a quest it will tell you you clear a Quest unless you 
    already cleared it before you even activate it or you are at the main menu 
    screen when the quest is cleared.
    
    
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    
    IMPORTANT : After clearing the quest ALWAYS go back to talk to Wind for your
    rewards. If not you will not get the reward.
    
    EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: NEVER SELL ALL YOUR ITEMS!!
    Keep at least one copy of each item and if you have only one of it, DO NOT
    USE or SELL it, because some of the items are needed to complete the quests.
    If you sold or used any of the quest required items, you have to buy them
    from others through the online wifi shop mode or beat the game and get the 
    items on the next playthrough.
    
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    
    
    The first quest (Preparations) must be done in order to progress 
    through the game. The rest are OPTIONAL.

                 you the curse status. Lesser Demon can be found in Forgotten
