    Here it is, slapped-together and not really spell-checked, but it should
    suffice to help the Japanese-impaired (not that I'm anywhere near fluent).
    It should also make decent reading for those of you who have already completed
    AC:PP, but had to slog through the game going, "What the hell do I have to
    do if I'm not supposed to kill everything?"

    I. OVERVIEW
    	This FAQ contains translations of the 17 Missions in ACPP.
    
    	The translations were done from a strategy guide that I got.  I noticed 
    that the mission request text is slightly different in the book than
    what is 
    actually said, but itís harder for me to figure out some of the
    on-screen 
    kanji, so youíre getting the book translation.  Iíve also done a few
    minor 
    notes on some of the in-mission dialogue.  If thereís enough interest, I
    could 
    try to translate that next.  If anyone knows Japanese and are really
    picky, 
    then you can correct me.  It took me a couple of weeks of working
    off-and-on 
    and a little help from a Japanese friend to complete this.  My knowledge
    of 
    Japanese is poor, but I can get around and make translations with a lot
    of time 
    and patience.
    
    	Standard (and sadly necessary) Line:
    	Armored Core: Project Phantasma was produced by "From Software".
    The translations from Japanese were done by me.  You may freely copy and
    disburse this FAQ in its original, uncut form.  Do not remove my name
    from
    this FAQ and attempt to get credit yourself.  If you do, I will hunt you
    down
    and squash your head under the heel of a custom-made, multi-ton, AC of
    Doom
    OR I will pursue other, more legal means of action, whichever comes to
    mind
    first...

    II. GENERAL
    
    If you slect New Game, you will be brought to the "Enter Pilot Name"
    screen.  
    Stay calm.  You will see a bunch of Japanese characters which you can
    use to 
    enter your name, but if you hit L1 or R1 buttons, you will be given the
    more 
    familiar Roman (and Greek) alphabet.

      I want you to capture a high ranking official who is visiting a
    weapons test 
    plant.  The testing area has anti-aerial radar and land mines, so please
    be 
    very 
    careful.  We will make our final approach on the area together.  From
    the start 
    of the operation, we will go north from the riverside, cross 2 bridges
    and then 
    keep a lookout to the West.
      ---
      Notes: Do not boost too high, step on a land mine, or attack the
    compound 
    before the official arrives, otherwise, you will fail.  Also, after you
    cross 
    the second bridge, head West until Sumika talks to you.  Then wait until
    he 
    arrives before moving out again.

      Start Time:        0902
      Mission Place:     Abolished Plant
      ---
      I have determined the "future transfer" that the person we captured
    had 
    planned.  An abandoned factory in the slums of Amber Crown is the
    place.  The 
    Wednesday Organization is also seriously investigating this matter.
      Prepare for an attack, and I want you to guard our "VIP".
    
      Note: Even if you fail this mission, you will go to the next one.

      In order to occupy the Amber Crown "rectenna" facility, the Wednesday

    underground condensers are destroyed, the repair costs will be deducted
    from 
    your fee.
      (Microwaves are strong above the antenna, so donít step on it!)

      Mission Place:     "Amber Crown" Town Area
      ---
      I am requesting the complete destruction of a Wednesday Organization 
    detachment.  We have received information that the Organizationís
    detachment is 
    gethering in the downtown area of Amber Crown.  Their intent is unknown
    but 
    this is a perfect opportunity.  If you completely destroy the
    detachment, then 
    they will probably have to make a move.

      I am requesting an assault operation on the Wednseday Organizationís
    main 
    office.  We will extract detailed data on Project Phantasma from the
    computer 
    in their main office, then we will make a proclamation.  I anticipate
    that this 
    will become an extended operation, so prepare your ACís ammunition
    stores 
    accordingly.
      ---
      In-Mission Dialogue:
      When you get to the computer room, Sumika will ask you to wait for her
    while 
    she extracts the data.  When she is finished, you must make your way
    back out.
    -----------------------------------------

      Stinger is the one behind the new weapons system, Phantasma.  Iíve
    heard he 
    is hiding together with some remaining Wednesday Organization members in
    the 
    Nord Highland.
      His purpose is unknown, but I want you to completely destroy
    Phantasma.
      ---
      In-Mission Dialogue:
      Computer:  Enemy MT approaching.  Number of MTs: 1 
      Stinger: ~ When will you stop being a nuisance?

      This is an urgent message.  I have just learned the whereabouts of the

      ---
      I discovered a secret base in the East side of Amber Crown that was
    left 
    behind by the Wednesday Organization.  I am requesting the destruction
    of this 
    base.
      Find the self-destruct device in the deepest area of the base and set
    the 
    countdown timer.  You will have 2 minutes to escape.
      ---
      In-Mission Dialogue:
      Sumika:  This is where you need to set the the timer.  Once you start
    it, it 
    canít be stopped.  Please be careful.

      Information has arrived concerning the hiding place of "Phantasma". 
    It is in 
    the area of Amber Crown, where a subway extends.
      Before you capture Stinger, please destroy "Phantasma".
      ---
      In-Mission Dialogue:
      Stinger: Youíve come?  Didnít I tell you I donít like nuisances!
        (I think he then says: ) Phantasma isnít here!

      This isnít a request.
      From now, I will become "Phantasma" and I will destroy everything. 
    Youíre a 
    nuisance, but I will invite you to the ceremony.  Come to the building, 
    "Abyss".
      ---
      Welcome to the Abyss.  This is Phantasma...(some stuff Iím not sure
    about)...
