                                        FORGING
    ===============================================================================
    
    Here is a list of which skills and attacks you get with each girl at each
    intimacy level.  Under special attacks, I have listed which weapon gets which
    attack.
    
    Also realize that you can forge a weapon anytime the girl gains a level to
    increase the WEAPON LEVEL, which will then go up to the level that it's user 
    is.  Which means that there are 2 times when you want to forge a weapon, when 
    you have successfully raised a girls' intimacy level with you, and when the 
    person whose weapon is being forged has gained a level.
    
    There are 10 levels of intimacy, and 10 levels of charisma.  You can raise
    intimacy to 10 from the moment you meet the girl, BUT you can't forge with them
    until you have the same (or higher) level of charisma.  So if they have 5
    intimacy, and you have 4 charisma, you can only forge a level 4 weapon.  Or if
    they have 4 intimacy and you have 5 charisma, a level 4 weapon.  But when they
    are both 5, a level 5 weapon.  So, you can get intimacy up as far as possible
    as soon as you want, but that actually works against you as you will be 
    skipping a lot of spells and abilities.
    
    Note: You can't forge a new skill or spell into a weapon until the girl's
          intimacy and your own Charisma are both higher.
    
    Note: You can date more girls than just those who will join your party!  These
          are the town girls, whenever you are in their town, and have "activated"
          them, you can date them and forge with them!  Town girls have an * by
          their name.  To find out how to activate them check the Dating section.
    
    WARNING:  You only gain the spells AT THAT EXACT level!  You don't gain all the
              previous level spells as well!  So don't raise Intimacy if you 
              haven't already forged! (if you need to lower intimacy you can go on 
              bad dates, fail at their mini-games, or give them Adult Novels or
              Umbrellas!)

    ===============================================================================
    Vintage/Rusty Weapons:
    ===============================================================================
    
      Throughout the game you'll find lots of Rusty Weapons, Rags, etc.  These can
      be "fortified" at any Sacred Altar that you have found.  Simply go to the
      Altar, and press X at it.  Then select the weapon you wish to fortify and
      leave it there for a long time.  When you come back it will be greatly 
      changed (assuming that you gave it enough time).  The weapons start out their
      fortifying experience as pitch black, but as time progresses, they will lose
      that and begin to look like normal weapons.  You can see them floating above
      the Sacred Altar.  This should help you to know when they are ready to come
      down.
    
      The best time to do these are AS SOON AS YOU FIND THEM!  Once you get any
      rusty weapon take it to the closest Sacred Altar and stick it in.  It takes a
      bit of time, but be patient, they will get done eventually.
    
      Meis'    ... Rusty Sword  ->  Sodine Knight
      Kyleen's ... Blunt Sword  ->  Gale Epee
      Soushi's ... Rusty Katana ->  Misame-No-Ouzuka
      Muza's   ... Rusty Axe    ->  Great Axe
      Sodina's ... Rusty Knife  ->  A. Heart
      Wyna's   ... Rusty Stick  ->  Gaia Maul
    
      However, Vintage Weapons are not that powerful.  In fact, after a certain
      point, your regular weapons are better.  So why get them?  If you get them
      quick enough, they could add to the game, otherwise, don't worry about them.

                                        DATING
    ===============================================================================
    
    There are two types of girls that you can date:  Party Girls (girls who join
    your party and fight with you), and Town Girls (girls who you can only date 
    when you are in their town).  Of the town girls only Marion will become 
    available automatically, the others you have to find on your own.

    You go on Dates to increase Intimacy with a girl, which determines how powerful
    a weapon you can forge.  However, Intimacy shouldn't be raised past your own
    Charisma Level because you simply can't do anything with it.  To raise your
    Charisma, gain some levels.
    
    To get to a Date, talk to a Goddess Statue and choose which girl you wish to
    date.  Then choose which option you want.  In addition to actual Dating, you
    have 2 more options with girls, give her a Present, or play her Mini Game.  
    Both of these options will be dealt with in that girl's section below.  Once 
    you have selected Date you have to take the girl to a Tavern in the town you 
    are in. It will ask "Date Here?" and you select "Yes".
    
    Each date costs you a different amount of MP.  A first date will cost 5, while
    the second date will be 11.  Remember it isn't a successful date until you get
    Kissed! :) (although your intimacy CAN be raised without a kiss!)
    
    Don't forget about Presents just because Dating is so much fun!  If you have a
    good gift in your inventory, by all means, give it to a girl!
    
    So what does Mood do?  It effects the MP cost of dating and forging!  The 
    better the mood (that is, the more filled in the Heart), the cheaper things 
    are!  Mood cycles naturally, like the Moon.
    
    Note:  You can give the same gift to a girl as many times as you want! (that 
           is, if you have more than 1 of them...)  She doesn't seem to mind that
           you already gave her that item!
    
    Caution:  Before raising an intimacy level, make sure you have forged your
              weapon on the current intimacy level!  Once you go up in intimacy
              level, you can only go back by having a really bad date.  Heh.
              Another really good way to lower Intimacy is to bomb on the Mini-
              Game, however, it will take 3, 4, even 5 attempts to get it lowered, 
              and the MP costs for dates get really high so...  And finally you can 
              also give the girls the Adult Novel, or an Umbrella.  Gifts 
              guaranteed to piss her off!
    
    Note: Sometimes a question is so odd, that either answer you pick is just as
          good (in that you get the same reaction from her with both answers), and
          other questions have answers that really piss the girl off.
    
    Note: Also note that each girl has a Best Dating Spot that allows you to ask
          questions about them.  The last question of all the options gets you a
          kiss.  I have now listed all of these spots just above their dating
          questions.

    KYLEEN NELPHE=====================---------------------------------------------
    =============
    
      Mini-Game:  BJ King
                  Kyleen wants to play Blackjack with you, so if you're familiar
                  with that game, that's all this is.  The first thing you do is
                  decide how much to bet.  At first you only get the choice of 1 or
                  10, but if you win you get the option to Continue, which bets
                  your winnings as well as your normal bet.  You and Kyleen will
                  both be given 2 cards to start with.  The Player number is your
                  total.  You want to get 21 without going over.  If you need
                  another card, select "HIT"; if you like the hand as it is, select
                  "STAND"; if you want another card AND double your bet, selected
                  the "DDOWN" (doubledown) command; if you don't think you can win
                  at all, select "SURRENDUR" to forfeit the match and get half your
                  bet back.  If you get a 21 (BLACKJACK) in the first 2 cards 
                  (which must be a 10, J, Q, K AND an Ace) you receive 2.5 times 
                  your bet back as winnings.  You also win if you have a higher 
                  total than the dealer but still don't exceed 21.  If Kyleen has 
                  an Ace in her first 2 cards you can buy insurance, if she gets 
                  Blackjack you get your insurance back, if not you lose the money.
                  If you both have Blackjack you can select Even Money to get 2
                  times your bet back.
    
                  Got all that?  Also there are only 5 sets that you get to win
                  money, so you have to win quickly!  I would start with a bet of
                  10 and "continue" until you get as much as you can get!  Also
                  realize that since an Ace is both valued at 1 and 11 you can
                  continue to hit if you have say an Ace and a 9 (value 20), and
                  you get another 9, your value will be 19.  Use the Doubledown
                  feature if you are going to hit and feel confident that you will
                  win.
    
      Presents:  Pearl Necklace -- I always wanted this!
                 Silver Choker  -- This is so wonderful...thank you.  *KISS*
                 Cute Earrings -- Wow!  Thanks!
                 Lapis Earrings -- Thanks.
                 Fine Bag -- Thank you.

    WYNA GRAPPLE===================================--------------------------------
    ============
    
      Mini-Game:  Hammer Strikes
                  The idea here is strikingly similar to Whack-A-Mole.  When the
                  Damashi appears behind one of the 8 squares, you press the
                  correct button to whack him.  The left squares use the D-pad,
                  while the right squares use the standard buttons.  Careful, Wyna
                  will appear occasionally, DO NOT WHACK HER!  Later doors will
                  open at the same time, 2, 3, even ALL AT ONCE!  So be careful,
                  but above all, be quick!  You will be graded on a percentage of
                  those that you managed to whack (like 45/50).
    
      Presents:   Dumbell Set -- This is cool. I'm going to use it everyday! *KISS*
                  Sweatband -- You know what I like! *KISS*

    How to Date -- to get Kyoka ready to date, go back to Boyzby after getting
                   Soushi in your party.  You'll find her in the Roberre Tavern 
                   (the area east of the hotel area), talk to her (see below) and 
                   she'll become dateable.  You may be asking yourself where you 
                   can Forge with her since Jyabil's place was destroyed, well the 
                   house just east of Jyabil's is now a Forge!

      Mini-Game:  Shell Joint
                  Just like memory!  During the first two matches all you have to
                  do is quickly find the card indicated at the top.  But then the
                  rules change.  You will be given a short period of time to look
                  at the cards, then when the top card is indicated, the cards are 
                  all covered, and you have a limited amount of time to find the 
                  right card.  Harder than it sounds.

                   the Elemental Cannon has been fired.

                  highest number.  X is an obstacle that you have to go around.
    
                  These are the mazes that I got on 2 different occasions, and may
                  not reflect any of the mazes that you have to do.

      Mini-Game:  Super Rock Paper Scissors
                  Surely you know how to play Rock Paper Scissors.  Well they
                  changed it a little.  The object of the game is to win 3 matches
                  before the robot does.  Each match consists of 2 rounds.  The
                  first round is the standard Rock Paper Scissors, where you get to
                  choose one of the 3, and the robot chooses one of the three.  If
                  you win (Rock beats Scissors, Paper beats Rock, Scissors beats
                  Paper) you win the round.  In the second round, if you won, you
                  have to guess which way the robot will turn.  Press any direction
                  on the D-Pad.  If you lost the first round you turn, and the 
                  robot tried to guess which way you will turn.  Oh and you're 
                  being timed too, so make it snappy!  You have to win both rounds 
                  to get the match point.
    
                  Note:  There is a pattern that depends on which person won last.
                         It rotates clockwise and counterclockwise for the 
                         different parts of the game.

    How to Date -- when you go back to Kant and everyone is back, you'll find Mil
                   standing by a tree.  This happens right after the Langoud 
                   crashes near Weino Pt.  Talk to her several times (she says 
                   "Hmm...") and she'll eventually get a little snippy.  Ask her 
                   what's wrong and she says that she is trying to solve how heavy 
                   the planet it.  Tell her that someone already figured that out 
                   and she'll want a new research topic.  Just then she recognizes 
                   you, and asks if you recognize her.  She is "The Girl from Kant 
                   I liked".  She will scribble some things in her notes.  Ask her 
                   what she's doing and she'll explain her note taking system.  
                   Tell her you were young back then. (check the Pre Date below for 
                   all the questions and answers) Once that's done she becomes 
                   dateable!  A good place to date her is by this tree.

      Mini-Game:  Brain Teasers
                  This game is the addition of shapes.  For example, you put two
                  triangles together to make a square.  You are shown 2 things to
                  add together, then you pick out what they would look like
                  combined.  Then you have to subtract two shapes, and then you 
                  have to pick out what the second shape would look like being 
                  given the final product and the first shape.  You are being timed 
                  so try to keep going quickly!
