    First off, I'd like to comment on the fact that NOT including the moves 
    for these characters in the instruction manual was a _major_ mistake on 
    somebodys part. These are not the sort of moves you can learn or 
    discover on your own, as they follow no really logical format. Heck, 
    they don't even give you EXAMPLES of any of the moves! As a result, I'm 
    sure that this game is going to be a much-hated rental for many people, 
    as the frustration of trying to figure out what possible combination of 
    buttons and joystick motions are needed to unlock even a single move is 
    unbelievable. I won't even go into the quality of the "instruction" 
    manual (suffice it to say that it explains the use of options that don't 
    _exist_, while skipping over things like basic control & gaining 
    experience). Anyway, the designer of the title was kind enough to list 
    the moves on his web page(no artifacts or boss codes yet, and I don't 
    know how ANY of the items work), and if I hadn't found them, I doubt I 
    would still own this game. His web address is:
    http://www.westol.com/~rickhall/
    
    Here's what I pulled the page, you'll find the game quite a bit more fun 
    when you can actually perform some of the moves....:). Also, you can use 
    the characters Magic Ability once for every "sparkle" you get next to 
    their picture, won in a match that is being fought for magic power in 
    campaign mode. If you win four magic power fights, you'll get a 
    lightning bolt, this indicates that your character now has use of their 
    arcane ability. It's usable once per round, or it's continuous, 
    depending on the character. Build your power in campaign mode, then play 
    story mode to gain experience levels (numbers next to your health meter 
    on the character select screen). I assume that the more experience you 
    have, the more powerful your character is overall, but I haven't noticed 
    any major changes thus far.
