    Section I- Weapons
    ---------------------
    Hand Dagger- This is your basic weapon. Unless this is your first 
    weapon, do not use it. It has the least power of all the weapons in the 
    game, as well as least range, and can be bought in the first shop.
    
    Long Sword- This is the second sword. Two times the power of the Hand 
    Dagger, as well as twice the range. It also can be bought in shops.
    
    Giant Blade- Three bladed sword. It has 50% more power than the long 
    sword, with slightly better range. It can also be bought in shops. The 
    best sword in the game besides the Dragon Slayer.
    
    Dragon Slayer- The most powerful weapon in the game, and has the best 
    range. Its more powerful than the Giant Blade. You cannot defeat the 
    last boss without it. It is found after you defeat The King of The 
    Dwarves, King Greive, in the Castle of Fraternal. You cannot equip this 
    until you get all of the last pieces of equipment.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Section II- Armor
    -----------------
    Leather Armor- This is the basic armor, you start the game off with it, 
    it has the weakest defense so get the studded mail as fast as you can.
    
    Studded Mail- This is the second armor you find, its better than the 
    Leather Armor. You can buy this in shops. It reduces the damage that you 
    take by 5%.
    
    Full Suit of Armor- This armor covers your whole body, although it still 
    looks like the Studded Mail, it just covers the rest of your body. You 
    can buy this in shops. It reduces the damage that you take by 10%.
    
    Battle Suit- The strongest armor in the game. It has more defensive 
    power than any of the other armors. You get this armor in the Conflate, 
    after defeating a boss. You cannot equip this until you get all of the 
    last pieces of equipment. You need this to get the Saphire Ring of 
    Dwarf.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Section III- Shields
    ---------------------
    Small Shield- You can buy this in the third shop in the game. Better 
    than having no shield at all. This shield reduces 50% of the enemy's 
    magical spells.
    
    Large Shield- You can buy this shield in shops. This shield reduces 75% 
    of the enemy's magical spells.
    
    Magic Shield- You can buy this shield in the second shop of the game, 
    although it is very expensive, you would be better off if you bought it 
    in the beginning of the game, it takes a while, but is worth it. This 
    shield reduces 90% of the enemy's magical spells.
    
    Battle Helmet- You find this shield (which coincidentially is a 
    helmet... -.-) in the Conflate, after defeating a boss. It disperses 
    almost all of the enemy's magical spells. You cannot equip this until 
    you get all of the last pieces of equipment. You need this to get the 
    Saphire Ring of Dwarf.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Section IV- Magic
    ------------------
    Deluge- The worst magic with the least power. Sold at the first couple 
    of shops. Better than having no magic at all, and is good if you dont 
    like fighting hand to hand.
    
    Fire- Second magic,you can buy this from a Druid (like the guy who 
    restores your magic in the first town) in a building behind the second 
    town, he sells it to you for 3000 gold, while warning you not to rely on 
    magic too much. This magic is 150% more powerful than Deluge.
    
    Thunder- Can be bought at some shops. Moves enemies away from you. This 
    magic is 400% more powerful than Deluge.
    
    Death- Can be bought in the second shop in the game, and in some other 
    shops. If you want a really powerful magic in the beginning of the game, 
    its worth it, if not, deluge works, get the magic shield instead, or 
    both. This magic is 600% more powerful than Fire.
    
    Tilt- Magic of Curses. This is the best magic in the game. This is 
    bought in the shop at Daybreak , and is a big help in the fight against 
    the last boss, although it fires in a diagonal direction.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Section V- Items
    ----------------
    Red Potion- Completely restores your health. Can be found in almost all

    to. Can also be found by eliminating all the enemies in certain areas.
    
    Keys- There is five types of keys, Jack, Queen, King, Joker, and Ace.

    only get it after you find the Battle Helmet and Battle Suit, you use it

    inventory. You find it in Conflate, sitting next to one of those spiked 
    monsters that give you health.
    
    Pendant- Increases the power of all of your weapons. Can be found in the 
    Area of Mist inside of The Tower of Suffer, which is where the Black 
    Onyx was, but was moved by the evil ones because they heard of the 
    hero's approach, after defeating not one, but two Wyverns.
    
    Black Onyx- Reduces the damage that you recieve when in your inventory.

    Section VIII-Frequently Asked Questions
    ---------------------------
    Q: Where can I find (insert item here)?
    
    A: The guide already states where most of the items are, not always 
    specific places though, remember, this is only a list of all the items 
    in the game, and im adding something extra and telling you where it is, 
    and unless stated that I will add the location later, I either don't 
    know, or you are just out of luck, because I wont tell you. Sorry
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Section IX- Cheats
    ------------------
    Extra 1500 Gold Trick- If you spend all the 1500 golds that the king 
    gives you in the beginning, and go back to him, he will give you another 
    1500 golds in return! You can also buy some things with it, and die, and 
    because of your low rank, you will start with full health, and no gold, 
    make sure you visited the guru first.
