    obtain some of the weapons that can only be found via Nintendo WFC. Anyone
    with information concerning how to get these weapons can please email me the

    Forging is a feature available in Rune Factory 2 only after reaching the
    second Generation stage of the game by getting married, having a child, and 
    building the school. Once achieving all of that, Generation 2 begins seven
    years later and you are now controlling your child. All of the tools you had
    in the first Generation are now old and rusty and no where near as effective
    as they were when Kyle had them. Any weapons you might have obtained during
    first Generation will still be intact, but there are now better options 
    available from Tanya's shop on the far East end of town.
    
    Once Generation 2 begins you now have the option of expanding the school by 
    talking to Mayor Byron in his home between 9am and 6pm and choosing "I'd 
    like to expand the school." There are three possible upgrades available to 
    you now: The Library, where you can find several magic books, the Dojo, 
    where you can train against monsters while being observed by Barrett, 
    and the Workshop, which is the most important addition as far as this FAQ 
    is concerned. Each addition will cost 10,000G and 100 lumber, which should
    be a nonissue at this point unless you seriously slacked off in Generation 1.
    
    Once you have the Workshop built (Mayor Byron will hire his miracle 
    construction team and have it up the next day) find Yue in Alvarna - North
    Square on Monday between 9am and 5pm and select the option:
    "I'm looking for a bargain." After selecting that Yue will bring up a list
    of available utilities for the newly created Workshop. Buy the Forge from
    her and any other things you might want for the Workshop (Pharmacy,
    Large/Small Kitchen, etc.).
    
    Congratulations! You are now ready to begin your new career as a blacksmith.
    In addition to the basic forging of tools and weapons, Rune Factory 2 has 
    implemented a new system of strengthening weapons, upgrading their levels and
    making them more efficient in battle. Strengthening weapons sometimes requires
    no additional materials, but most strengthening efforts do require you to add
    materials to the weapons to make them stronger. These materials are almost
    exclusively metals found through mining in the four seasonal dungeons.
    
    The Workshop can be found by moving one screen to the right once entering
    the School. There are no specific utensils used in Forging, all you need to 
    do to forge is to have the required materials (up to 6 per recipe) and place
    them in the specified boxes and select "OK."
    
    Now, for the only reason most of you are even looking at this guide: 
    The Recipes!
    
    
    
    A note on the format of these recipes, they will be laid out as such:

                            | 5) Skilling Up Forging |           {SKF}

                             ========================
    
    
    When Skilling up Forging, the easiest method is to simply get a weapon that
    you can strengthen and keep at it until your skill is capped for that item.
    Weapons can only reach a maximum of level 10, but skill can still be obtained
    by continued strengthening of a level 10 weapon, even though the weapon will
    not be changed in any way after reaching that 10th level.
    
    Now that we have the basics, here is the list of easiest strengthening 
    recipes to grind your Forging skill on.

                          ============================
    
    Just as in Forging, the easiest and most efficient way to skill up your
    Accessory skill is to use decorations you have already made and to strengthen
    it. Items can only be strengthened to level 10, but you will continue to gain
    skill even if you strengthen a level 10 item continuously.

    In this section I will list where you can obtain all of the materials required
    to make all of the recipes posted in this FAQ.
    
    A quick note about materials: They are obtained by a number of differing 
    mathods and circumstances. Some materials can only be gathered during the day
    (6am-6pm), while others can only be obtained at night (6pm-6am). Some can 
    only be gathered by defeating monsters, while others can only be obtained by
    using the spell Inquisitive Waltz in the correct areas. Ores and Gemstones
    can be obtained only through breaking gold-speckled rocks within dungeons,
    and some few ingredients can only be grown by your own volition.
    
    Materials are listed in alphabetical order, with information on how, when, 
    and where to obtain the item.
