    1.0    Introduction
    
    Phantasy Star Online Episode 1 & 2 was released for both the Gamecube and 
    Xbox.  The information within this guide can also pertain to some of the 
    Holidays for the Blue Burst PC Version, but is not a definitive guide for 
    that version.
    
    2.0    The PSO Holidays
    
    Phantasy Star Online Episode 1 & 2 celebrated 5 major annual holidays.  
    There are special changes to the online game happen around the time of the 
    following holidays.  Usually these changes lasted about 2 weeks and very 
    often the changes happened in the weeks before the holiday and end shortly 
    after the holiday ended.
    
    Halloween - October 31st
    
    Christmas - December 25th
    
    Valentine's Day - February 14
    
    White Day - March 14 (Japanese Holiday, Boy Themed Valentine's)
    
    Easter - Floating Holiday (The first Sunday after Passover begins)
    *Passover is a Jewish holiday and is based off of a different calendar then 
    the one that is used for normal purposes, so I can't give you an exact date.  
    It's usually in April.
    
    3.0    Halloween
    
    Halloween is by far the most eventful holiday in the game.  There was a 
    special quest in which one could participate AND you could go hunting for a 
    special Rappy.  This section will feature the following.
    
    --- Special Quest Walk-Through
    --- Hallo Rappy Details
    --- The Jack O Lantern Items
    
    Quest: Pioneer Halloween 
    Description: "Find "Cake," the legendary candy! The Naura Sisters may have 
    some, somewhere on Gal Da Val Island..." 
    Client: Young woman  
    Reward ??? 
    
    The idea of this quest is to find the cake that the Cake Sister's are baking.  
    These are the same sisters as in one of the offline quests for Episode 1.  
    This quest occurs in both regions of the Jungle.  As a sub-plot you can go 
    and look for all the hiding Hallo Rappy.  The Hallo Rappy will give you a 
    special cake if you can find all the hiding Rappy!
    
    By completing this quest, you will receive a special cake item.  Your cake 
    was based on the Serial Number in 2003 and the ID number in 2002.  You 
    receive more cakes depending on how large your team is.  You get 2 cakes for 
    yourself and one more for each member of your team.  All of the cakes that 
    you receive are identical but members of your team may receive different 
    cakes.  If you have 8 different cakes, you can trade it for a Jack O Lantern 
    Item! 
    
    ---Hallo Rappy
    
    Hallo Rappy is a rare but interesting Rappy.  It looks like it is wearing a 
    cloak but has a Jack O Lantern for its head.  During Halloween, they replace 
    the Love Rappy in the Temple.
    
    ---The Jack O Lantern
    
    The Jack O Lantern is the item dropped by almost all Hallo Rappy (95% of the 
    time, I believe).  You can also get one from the quests, Pioneer Halloween 
    and the Version 1.1 Bonus Quest. 
    
    To use the Jack O Lantern, there are no requirements.  Inside is one of 8 
    random items.  If you are after a particular item, then you should quit the 
    online game and try offline.  The following are the Jack O Lantern items.  
    Offline you can keep on soft resetting until you get the item you want. 
    
    Heart of Opa Opa
    Heart of Chu Chu
    Heart of Kapu Kapu
    Heart of Chao
    Parts of Robochao
    Heart of Pian

    Cell of Mag 512*
    
    * The Mag Cells act differently depending on your ID.
    
    To find out what the requirements to change your Mag Are use these nifty 
    details!  Do not use them on anything but ordinary Mags, because the rare 
    ones will not change, but will use up your Mag Cell.  There are a few
