---1.)Introduction--------------
--------------------------------

This is my first FAQ, and it was made to clearify and compile all of the RNG
tricks in one convienant place.  If you note any errors in the guide, please 
feel free to E-mail me at Myname@snet.net  Now lets get started!

--------------------------------
---2.)RNG Overveiw--------------
--------------------------------

The RNG (or Random Number Generator) governs many things in this game, from
whether or not you hit, to how many stats you level up, to what items an enemy
drops.  This guide was created for you to learn how to RNA (or Random Number
Abuse)  To get many stat level ups, or special items.  Some terms you may hear
are hard and soft reset, if you don't no what this is, a soft reset is pressing
the A, B, Start, and select buttons in concert to make the game restart, a hard
rest is actually turning the game off.  If no reset type is specified, either
will work.

--------------------------------
---2.1)RNG tricks---------------
--------------------------------

This trick is the base of RNG abuse, with it, you can calculate what will
happen, specificly used for level ups.

Step 1: Get a character with five movement into a space with no surrounding 
terrain 

---|---|---
---|XXX|---
---|---|---

XXX= You
---= Empty Terrain

Step 2: Select that character with the A button, and move the cursor around the
character in this manor, right, up, left, left, down.

444|333|222
555|XXX|111
---|---|---

XXX= You
---= Empty Terrain
111= The first move, 222 is the second etc.

Step 3: Move the Cursor Down once, look at how the arrow bends, if it bends 
like this (to the Left, then Down)

---|---|---
111|XXX|---
222|---|---

XXX= You
---= Empty Terrain
111= The first move, 222 is the second etc.

It means the RN the game rolled is between 51 and 100.

But if it looks like this (Down, then left)

---|---|---
---|XXX|---
222|111|---

XXX= You
---= Empty Terrain
111= The first move, 222 is the second etc.

It means the RN the game rolled is between 1-50.

Step 4: Record the RN you rolled, with an H for 51-100, and a L for 1-50.  
Ideally, you want to get a string of 7 L's, which means, the 7 RN's used for
your stat up will be <49, which drastically increases your chance of getting a
5 or more stat level up.

Step 5: Once you have a string, for example HLLLLHHHLLLHLHLLHHLHHHLHLHLLHHLHHH
HHLHLLHLLHLLLHLHHLLLLHHLLLHH LHLLH HLLLH HLL HLH HHH LLLLLLL and you have 
rolled 7 L's in a row, Restart the game, ang get to the point in the string 
right before the 7 L's, level up one of your characters.  They chould get a 
several stat level up.

Note: The numbers corrilate like this, the last 7 RN's rolled go HP,STR/MAG,
SPD,SKL,DEF,RES,LUK, If you have maxed a stat, say SPD, you can use a string of
RN's like this LLHLLLL and get the same effect as a LLLLLLL string.  This can
Cut down the time you spend looking for a good LLLLLLL string.  Mastering this 
can lead to several characters naturally maxing stats, this works particullarly
well with L'Arachel, who has almost all atributes in the 40% growth rate.

Controlled level up(must have Tethys):

Move onto the tower on the world map.
Retreat.
Hard reset.
Enter the tower.
Make sure it's the map with a monster holding an iron lance and a blinking 
runesword.
Place desired leveling unit front and center.
Place Tethys below respective unit.
Begin battle

Contributed by: Ghost of Erk

*Strength, Skill, Speed, (HP or Resistance if growth is high enough):

Move unit 5 spaces forward.
Waste one RN with Tethys.
Use tethys to dance for respective unit.
Use a ranged weapon to kill the boss in two blows.
It MUST BE IN ONLY TWO BLOWS WITHOUT A COUNTERATTACK!!!

Contributed by: Ghost of Erk

*HP, Luck, Defense, Resistance:

Move unit 5 spaces forward.
Dance for unit with Tethys.
Attack boss with respective unit.
Your unit SHOULD critical and kill in one hit. If not, this method will not 
work.

*Note: A number of Characters are uncompatible with these trick, I am currently
pinpointing the exact RN's given for this trick

Arena RN trick:

"Ok, when you go into the arena(like in ch.5 for example) three RNs are used:1 
to determine the type of person based on the person going into the arena; 1 to 
determine the level compared to the person going into the arena;1 to determine 
the type of weapon(Iron,Steel,Silver) again based on the person going into the 
arena.......the second RN is used to determine the level......if the second RN 
is "high" then the person will be higher(IIRC) than your person. If the 2nd RN 
is low(Again IIRC) then the person that you will be sending into the arena"

Bkam4 IM'd this to me, it basically is a trick for arena abuse.  I'm currently
testing it to see how it works specifically, but from this information, you
could get a huge string of arena abuses.  Get a long string recorded, and go 
into the arena against a low level enemy.  I'm not 100% abut this, but, I'm
fairly sure that each turn takes 8 RNs if you miss, and 9 RNs if you hit.
So, using this, you eat the necissary number of RNs to get another low level
fight, and another, and another...
