Version 1.0 11/07/00-Created FAQ for Freiya.

<READ THE SECOND PARAGRAPH TO SEE HOW TO VIEW THE JAPANESE TEXT>
I keep getting a ton of emails about it, and how to view the Japanese text
is in the paragraph right below the disclaimer.

This FAQ was created using NJSTAR, and to view it properly, I would suggest
right clicking the page, then choose 'encoding' and choose Japanese
Auto-Select. That is to view it on a PC with Windows, and since I don't have a
Mac, I have no idea how to do that with them. So, sorry.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Although there are a couple of Menued versions of the ability lists and the
like, I have yet to see anything actually explaining what all of them do. 
Usually, there is just a name for them, and I guess you simply have to know
what they do by only the name.  Well, some people do not know, so I am going to
try to throw out a helping hand again.  Hopefully this'll help y'all out
somewhat.

Note that most of my lists are not at 100%; I apologize, as I am only going
through the game for my 2nd time at the time of writing this.  Thank you.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the Abilities, they will be listed as they look on the ability screen
first, so their placement on the actual screen of the TV/monitor will look
similar.  Then the same list with their English translations follows. After
that list, each ability will be translated (to the best of my ability), then
the info about it will be displayed.  Lastly, the actual equipment that must be
equipped to learn the Ability will be in there too, but note that I have
nowhere near every item, so these lists go by what I have encountered on my own
way through the game.  Here we go.  I am sorry for the huge delay in posting
this, and the US version comes out in a few weeks, but hey, its better late
than never, right?

アビリテイのフライヤ-Abiriti no Furaiya (Freiya's Abilities)

Please note that I myself call her Freiya, and the correct way (I guess) is
like Freija or something..I like the Y better, but this is by personal
preference.  So please don't email me saying I'm stupid for calling her
that..thats what I first thought it was and prefer it.
