    001. Introduction
    Recettear is a fairly relaxing and easy to learn game. You run an item shop,
    hunt for the stuff you sell, buy low and sell high, unlock new dungeons and
    adventurers and all that stuff.
    002. Characters
    Recette:  Main character of the story. Left with a huge debt by her father
              without her even knowing it. Lives on top of a hill when Tear comes
              and tells her that she may lose her house if the debt isn't paid.
    Tear:     Fairy working for Terme Finance to collect Recette's father's loan.
              She will be yout tutor throughout the game. Always shows her strong
              side and acts as a sister to Recette.
    Alouette: Daughter of the owner of Big Bash, a big Walmart like chain, and
              claims Recette as her rival. She is assisted by her own fairy, Prime.
    Prime:    Alouette's assistant fairy who keeps Alouette in check.
    Merchant's guild master: He will be responsible for selling weapons and armors
                             to you. Fusion and expansion are also availed through
    Euria:    She who we call the 'combo breaker'. Will occasionally come and sell
              overpriced items just to break your justcombos.
    003. Adventurers
    Adventurers can be unlocked sometime in the game. Their initial equipments will
    be weak and unreliable and the only way to replace them is by selling them the
    equipment. Another way is to "lend" them their equipment but this will take
    space in your inventory so this is not quite recommended.
    At the end of the game, you may acquire an adventurer's "True Card" as a sign
    of friendship. The effect of True Cards is that you can use the said adventurer
    early on on the next loop of the game. I recommend getting other True Cards
    besides Louie since he'll be given at the very start of the game. True Card
    selection is based on the number of adventures you had with an adventurer.
    The more adventures, the higher chance of getting their True Cards. On an
    event that 2 adventurers get the same number of adventures, priority will take
    Louie, Charme, Caillou, Tielle, Nagi/Elan/Griff is the priority order.
    Louie: Brave but poor adventurer. Uses swords. Throughout the story, you will
           know exactly just how poor he is. -_-;
    How to unlock: He's given to you as your first adventurer.
    Skills: Spin Slash   - Louie will spin causing damage to enemy units round him.
            Vacuum Blade - Ranged attack. 1 direction only.
    Charme: Theif. She's fast and deadly. She can run by double tapping a direction
            and can even run on curves.
    How to unlock: Finish Jade Way and after 2 cutscenes on your store (while open),
                   she'll give you her guild card.
    Skills: Mirror Image - Creates images that cannot be damaged but can damage
            Flame Charge - Charges the enemy with flames. Useful when escaping.
            Shadow Weave - Places a web on the ground rendering enemies trapped for
                           the kill.
    Caillou: Mage with an attitude problem. He's quite fun to use especially when
             leveled up.
    How to unlock: After getting the merchant skill of advance ordering, he'll
                   visit your store and order a slime liver (Slime King), charred
                   lizard (Gnolls) and bat wings (Eyeballs). After fulfilling the
                   orders, sell some items to him and he'll give you his card
                   to unlock him.
    Skills: Pyrobomb     - Burst of fire in Caillou's surroundings.
            Ice Mine     - Fires a block of ice that explodes in a short distance.
            Sparkburst   - What I call 'Machinegun'. Fires a volley of arcane
                           missles in front of Caillou
            Gemini Force - Summons spheres that act as shields but can also be
            Warp         - Teleports Caillou in random places within the floor.
    Note: Caillou's attacks absorb SP from opponents, so whe you run out, whack the
          heck out of them. Caillou's attack can also be ranged. Hold your attack
          button then you'll see that he'll somewhat charge and release an orange
    Tielle: Elven archer who likes sweets. She's pretty fun to use when there are
            crowds of monsters in the floor.
    How to unlock: Do her event in the town square where she begs her sister to
                   walk slower. Then defeat her at Amber Garden (she's the final
                   boss there).
    Skills: Flame Arrow    - Fires a flaming arrow in front of Tielle.
            Seeker Arrow   - Homing arrows.
            Starshot Arrow - Tielle fires arrows into the sky and rains down like
                             satellite lasers.
            Cuterage!      - Gives Tielle rage to charge her arrows faster.
    Note: Tielle's arrows can be charged. There are 5 levels of varying strenght
          and a 6th level when in Cuterage! mode.
    Nagi: Eastern lancer with a very very narrow range. She can only attack enemies
          directly in front of her.
    How to unlock: Meet her 4 times in random dungeons then when she finally finds
                   her way back, sell her items and she'll give you her card
    Skills: Flame Charge    - Nagi bathes her lance in flame and charges forth!
            Hundred Thrusts - Nagi thrusts with her spear faster than the eye can
                              see! Ideal for boss battles.
            Spin Slash      - Same as Louie's. Spinning attack.
            Vacuum Spear    - Same as Louie's. Range attack, 1 direction
    Elan: Monk in training. Apparently has a long tab at the pub.. Drunk monk. xD
    How to unlock: You have to have Charme then do the night event on which the
                   pub owner's going to have a verbal fight with Elan. Go to the
                   Merchant's Guild the next day and do the event wherein the
                   GM will ask you to deliver a box to the orphanage. You'll meet
                   Elan. Afterwards, sell items to him to get his card.
    Skills: Flame Charge - Something like what those gnolls do. Punch with fire.
                           Not good damage and slow initiation which is only good
                           for escaping.
            Fist Flurry  - One of the best skills of Elan (for me). He will do some
                           wicked fist combo and finishes it with a rocky
                           explosion. Hits more than one target as long as it's in
                           front of Elan.
            Berserk      - He'll have improved damage but won't be able to use items
                           or skills.
    Note: Elan's SP isn't that great and all so try not to consume it all at once.
    Griff: Demon who trash talks Tear and Recette when they first met.
    How to unlock: Defeat him at Obsidian Tower, he'll visit your store and give you
                   his card.
    Skills: Dark Claw       - Griff will attack in a straight line (One like in boss
                              battle) in an attempt to slice enemies in half.
    Demon Soul      - Same as Elan's Berserk. You won't get knocked back
                              hit and have a stronger damage.
            Vampiric Vortex - Griff fires off a black vortex that sucks enemies and
                              damages them while healing you.
    Note #1: Griff is a total badass. His range is massive and he has this dash that
             makes him invisible (pass through enemies).
    Note #2: You DO NOT have to be on endless mode to unlock Griff. I got him on my
             5th loop (I'm on the 6th.)
    Arma: Mech chick that you get as a final prize for finishing Recettear!
    How to unlock: Get all characters then finish Lapis Ruins which is a no joke
                   100 floors with an imbalanced final boss.
    Skills: Vector Cannon - Fires a huge cannon which takes a while to charge.
                            Drains ALL sp upon use. 1 direction with a huge damage.
                            Will not work if sp is not full (w/c won't happen lol,
                            you only got one skill >_>)
    Note #1: Her arms consume ammo and gets depleted. This is really annoying as her
             arms need to charge and charging needs time.
    Note #2: I have not tried a non-endless Arma so the only way I know is to play
             endless mode. :p

    **Pre-ordered items will be collected by customers ASAP that day. So when you
    open at evening, expect all those customers to claim them at evening. When you
    open in the morning, expect all those customers to claim them during morning.
    Max you can raise is 130% when prices are normal and up to 300%++ when prices
    are red (high)
    Here are the highest max % I got so far (still trying stuff. :D)
    low price    - 70%  (BLUE)
    normal price - 130% (WHITE)
    high price   - 310% (RED)
    Also, when you are able to sell items on the first try (customers don't haggle),
    there will be bonuses to exp. Here's a short list of them:
    JustCombo - increases as you sell items on the first price you set continuously.
                gets cut if the customer haggles.
    NearPin   - your price is near of what the customer thought it would cost
    JustPin   - your price is exactly what the customer thought it would cost
    There are certain (or often as the game progresses) times that customers will
    try just to lower the prices. If the price you gave is 127% below, try to give
    the same price again, some will buy the item with no further arguments.
    When selling to adventurers, don't raise the price too much especially when
    they are trying to buy an equipment that they can wear. You'll know this
    because there will be a small box on the upper right corner signifying the
    change in their stats. Sell low or even go below 100% so that your adventurer
    will be more fit for battle.
    Selling too much of 1 kind of item will result to its price CRASHING! Price
    crash will result to that item to have a blue (low) price. Remove these items
    and replace them with other items. Wait for a few days for the price to recover.
    Here are the max lowest % I got so far. (feel free to experiment with these.)
    low - (still looking :D)
    normal - 40%
    high - 90%
    Buying also affects JustCombo so if you buy at the first set price, your combo
    won't brake. :)
    Remember: Capitalism, Ho!
    Character Specific %
    Finalage mailed me some info for this section as I don't think I have the
    patience to watch them all 1 by 1. xD
    "The Old Guy"                 - only buys at 116% at first, or lower. When he
                                    knows you better, it's 118%
    "The Guild Master/That Guy"   - Both of them, that guy who dresses similarly
                                    to the old guy and the guild master, buy at
                                    around 125~126% to start with, though 125 is
                                    safest until you get to know them.
                                    After that, I'm none too sure.
    "The Woman and "Her Daughter" - I call the girl her daughter for sanities sake.
    They both buy around 112% to begin with,
                                    while the woman can be pushed later on to 116
                                    percent, the girl is stubborn at 114%.
                                    Ehh. What can you do?
                                  - As for me, the woman can go past 112% to 127% or
                                    more. I'll go try to go higher ;) -advent
    Louie                         - About 118% Is always safe, save for when you
    first meet him, 116% is better then. Liken him
                                    the old guy.
    Charme                        - Selling items to her at around 105% to 110%
    a near pin occasionally, maybe her just is
                                    around this level?
    Calliou                       - Can never get his name right...12_% is always
                                    it seems.
    Alouette                      - Feh, 130%? It's safer to say over 135%, she
                                    buys without complaint on 138% for me.
    Preferences/Item Class
    This part shows what customers want/need when they say paricular clues.
    I'll try to complete this ASAP as this is often one of the headaches of
    playing Recettear shop mode. xD

    Note: This boss rush is SO DAMN HARD. SO DAMN HARD. SO. DAMN. HARD.
          Even my level 60 characters die here. Lots of failures on this one.
    Dungeons are enjoyable at start but as the levels go higher, you might start to
    get bored. Stuff in ingredients if you're aiming for fusion but if not, go for
    healing items. This gets tricky as you start with only 20 slots. Pick those
    ingredients with (+) and discard those that don't have (+). Recovery items with
    (+) heals more than plain ones.
    Also, when out of healing items, try to level up! But be careful as trying too
    hard to level up while low on HP/SP might result to death.
    It might also be another good point to clear the floor before going to the next
    one as it not only gives you loots, but also precious experience points for
    easier boss battles.
    Also, dungeons have 2 kinds of traps - Treasure and field traps
    Treasure Traps are traps activated upon opening a chest whereas field traps
    are traps that get activated just by walking around killing monsters.
    Trap types:
    Bomb          - sets a 5 sec bomb
    Warp          - warps you on random location in the floor
    Slime         - summons 4 blue Slimes
    Winter        - makes the floor slippery (countered by equipping Eskimo Boots)
    Paralyze      - completely halts monsters and slows you down
    Flying Fish   - 3 fishes whirl through the map.
    Falling Rocks - Rocks fall to damage you and monsters
    Random bonuses for floors. (Not all floors have bonuses. =])
    Floor bonus types (random):

    Item fusion one of the most gruelling parts of Recettear. You have to collect
    ingredients, fuse them, go back to dungeons and collect again, then fuse and
    the cycle goes on.
    Here's the merchant level requirement for fusion:
    Level 05 - Fuse rank 1 items
    Level 13 - Fuse rank 2 items
    Level 19 - Fuse rank 3 items
    Level 25 - Fuse rank 4 items
    Level 30 - Fuse rank 5 items
    There are 3 colors that will appear on your creation list:
    Green - You are good to go because you have the complete ingredients
    White - You have unlocked all the ingredients but do not have enough
    Grey  - You have one or more unknown ingredient for that item
    You might also see something like:
    Req: (1) Pos: (7)
    Req - required number
    Pos - items in ownership

    Note: If the ingredient (may it be weapon or ingredient) needed is neither
    in stores or not listed, then it can only be acquired via random treasure
    chests on dungeons, fused OR you can buy at 500% from Euria *grin*
    Note: All enemies have a random chance of dropping food.
    008. Additional Notes
    [x] Try to relax when adventuring in dungeons, you don't know what
    new enemies will appear and what their attributes are. Don't go
    rushing towards enemy, study them for attack patterns. :)
    [x] When opening a treasure chest, check out Tear first, when she
    gives an (!), DO NOT open the chest, it'll be a trap.
    [x] When Alouette buys from your store, do 130%+ ALWAYS! :)
    [x] Manage your time. Plan your day ahead, i.e.
    Morning+Noon = dungeon
    Afternoon    = go around town/sell
    Night        = sell/go around town
    See to it that you do events as some of them may unlock new characters.
    [x] How did I finish Lapis Ruins? I took advice number 1. Relax. Don't
    rush. And bring regeneration items just in case.
