    ~~~ I. Intro ~~~
    
    So, you're interested in the Coliseum, you want to climb the ranks and hope to
    become champion, eh? Or maybe you just want to farm TP to fly past those Deck 
    Levels... Whatever your goal, you've come to the right place. But first, you've
    got to get "registered".
    
    ~~~ II. Starting Off ~~~
    
    Early in the game in Mintaka, at the screen of the port, in the corner between
    the building and some tanks, will be a cowardly man. Speak to him and he'll say
    some things about how he went through the hassle of signing up, and getting
    through the test, but now he's too afraid to actually go to the Coliseum. He'll
    offer you his dog tags instead. After aqcuiring them, you'll be able to visit
    the Coliseum from any blue save flower you find. The first time you go to the
    Coliseum, after entering the room to the left speak to the woman behind the desk
    in the top right corner. Ask to register for a battle, rank 1 (You can't expect
    to start at the top of the ranks, can you?) and choose any of the fights. Order
    doesn't matter, because you're going to have to fight them all to rank up,
    anyway.
    
    ~~~ III. Ranking Up ~~~
    
    So, after you've fought off all the baddies of the first rank, you're ready to
    move up. Make sure you've gotten all the RP you need. You get an amount for each
    group of monsters you fight, and you can see how much you need in order to rank
    up by looking at the number next to "NEXT", which is displayed when you're
    talking to the Registration Lady. Assuming you're doing this before you go to
    Diadem, the Registration Lady will tell you that you have enough RP to rank up,
    but sadly, there are no jobs for you to do. She assures you that they will mail
    you as soon as they've found a job, though. Great, just great. After spending
    all that time fighting until you can't fight anymore, you have to wait. Just
    hurry up and get to Diadem, will ya?
    
    Also one quick note: If you already have access to the continent where the
    rank-up task is located, then the Registration Lady will tell you the task
    straight away. If not, then you will receive the job via a letter in the magnus
    shop of the continent in which the task is located. And occasionally the
    Registration Lady will tell you about your next task when you still need some
    more RP.
    
    Rank 2:
    
    Location: Diadem ; Sheliak
    Task: Get medical supplies from the doctor.
    
    How: Merely go into the door on the far left of the first screen (The screen
    with the Sfida) and talk to the doctor. After a cutscene involving Elle, a
    patient at the infirmary, you will receive the valuable item "Medical Supplies".
    Take the supplies to the Registration Lady and you will be advanced to Rank 2.
    
    Rank 3:
    
    Location: Sadal Suud ; Nunki Valley
    Task: Guide Mr. Lance through Nunki Valley to Cebalrai.
    
    How: Head over to Nunki Valley and find Mr. Lance in the screen closest to
    Cebalrai. Talk to him and he will ask you for directions. The correct
    directions are: Come Closer, Come Down, and Come Closer again. He will then say
    that he sees Cebalrai, and thanks you for your assistance. Go back to the
    Registration Lady and you will be advanced to Rank 3.
    
    Rank 4:
    
    Location: Anuenue ; Komo Mai
    Task: Meet with Mr. Panie
    
    How: Apparently, you've recieved a dinner invitation from Mr. Panie. It most
    likely has something to do with the group of monsters that he sponsors, which
    you completely obliterated, no doubt. Anywho, head to Komo Mai and into the
    first house you see. After Mr. Panie threatens you, head back to the
    Registration Lady and you will be advanced to Rank 4.
    
    Rank 5:
    
    Location: Tarazed ; Vega
    Task: Meet with Mr. Panie
    
    How: After ignoring his first threat, Mr. Panie invites you once again to his
    home. Except he's relocated to Tarazed. To find his new location, enter Vega
    and just keep going straigt until you reach the blue save flower. The house
    above the flower is where Mr. Panie is. Now he's done with threats and says if
    you go back to the coliseum again, he will reveal that you are not registered.
    Return anyway, and after a cutscene, go to the Registration Lady to be advanced
    to Rank 5.
    
    Champion:
    
    Location: Coliseum
    Task: Win the Championship Battle
    
    How: After getting the RP required to rank up, you will be able to take a shot
    at the Championship Battle. If you win, you will become the Champion, no
    questions asked. After you have become Champion, you will notice that there are
    now six statues of Sagi placed around the entrance hall of the Coliseum, as 
    well. And you will be able to participate in the Advanced battles.
    
    ~~~ IV. Prizes ~~~
    
    Starting with Rank 2, you will be able to talk to the woman behind the top left
    desk, and she will allow you to trade RP for prizes. Trading RP for prizes does
    NOT mean you need more to advance in ranks. For every rank you advance, you
    will be able to claim another prize. Finally, after beating The Wicked Gawd,
    you will be able to claim ???? (Portait of Verus) and EX Combo Recipe 6.
