    I. Intro
    -----------
         This is my first time to write a FAQ, so please don't complain about the art...
    anyways this is a guide to the magic in the best game on Earth...Chrono Cross!
    
         In this game you have to FIND your magic, just like FFVII. If you know how to use
    FFVII's Magic system, you've got a little head start. You can find Elements in treasure
    boxes, prizes after fights, and many other circumstances.

    III. Magic
    ------------
         Magic exists in pairs. The pairs are White/Black, Yellow/Green, and Red/Blue. The colors
    are effective against the other. If the field effect is all [insert  magic innate here], that
    kind of magic is almighty until the next casting of another kind of magic. To Summon a monster
    to come and tear your enemy apart (with the exception of Unicorn), you need to place it on
    lv.8 and the field effect must be filled with the Summon's innate.

    VI. Summons
    ------------------
        There are a pair of summons for each element. The field effect must be all [insert summon
    innate here] to summon it. But, hey, it's worth it. If you have the Time Shifter, I recommend
    using it to see the ammount of work the developers put into the graphics.
