    [[[[[[[[[[[[[[[THIS FAQ IS NOT A WALKTHROUGH]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]
    It is merely an in-depth look at some aspects of the game.

                          Version History
    Version 1.0:
    *-> Had several sections but decided to stick with only
    the affinity table because the rest could be found in
    other faqs.
    Version 1.1:
    *-> Updated the Q&A at the end.
    Version 1.2:[2/13/01]
    *-> Added Aromatherapy and Treatment Courses started
    with Item Return table again with Archaeopteryx permission.
    Version 1.3:[2/18/01]
    *-> Got to the point where I found the rumor about
    the genie gaining "affinity reading power" and I
    made a second affinity table with it.. Interesting!
    The return table list is a pain and still under
    construction but I've added some more.
    I finally finished the game at lvl 61,55:51:44 hours
    and with the legendary personas...awesome fight.
    Its 2:05AM and am enjoying the credits...it was all worth it.
    One word..Excellent.
    Now...to play it again..*snicker*
    I want to see the Ex-dungeon.
    Version 1.4:[8/02/01]
    *->Well, its been some months since I moved on from playing
    the game to another games, I was half-way through this version
    in May but due to school I had to postpone it until now, so
    I added a item return table from Archaeopteryx's FAQ and 
    updated my email since @usa.net stopped giving free service.
    Version 1.5:[1/08/02]
    *->Noticed gamfaqs had version 1.3 instead of 1.4, so I 
    added a little introduction explaining this FAQ IS NOT a 
    walkthrough(I got some mails about it).
                          Affinity Table
    How this works:
    When you aquire certain rumor, you are able to get affinity
    readings with the Sumaru Genie for 5000 yen, the genie tells
    you about the affinity you have with a certain character 
    depending on the answer you give her to the 6 questions she
    asks you. For example giving her 6 "Yes" answers will give you
    the Eldest Satomi Sister as your affinity character and thus
    she will give you discounts in her store! (Magazines cost
    400 yen instead of 500 yen, useful when you wanna buy 99 to have
    a chance to win something in those sweepstakes). Now, I made a table
    with all 64 possible answers to the 6 questions the Genie asks you,
    it works like binary code(because of the Yes or No choices), if
    you dont know binary I'll explain after the table.
    1 = "Yes"
    0 = "No"

    After a while, you get a rumor about the genie
    getting "more powerful" affinity readings
    I checked some of the numbers above, and some
    indeed change. The new list is below.
    Mainly ALL of the Sister's affinities changed.

    Questions I have regarding the comments made by
    the characters of the reading.
    **Irquic calls herself Akari? WTH? Im Irgri?
    ***The password is lovely?
    *_*Huh? Knife seller?
    *?*Makes every two-sided rumor the good one?
    *!*This one is a MUST before you go shopping there..REALLY!(Padaparcha Store)
    Rumors about Affinities with non-store-owners 
    characters found on the board or emailed to me:
    From Tainted Beef:
    the only thing that happens when you get affinity with party members
    (aside from warm fuzzies) is that the damage during fusion spells between maya
    and that person increases slightly. no changes in storyline or dialogue, etc. 
    How binary code works:
    Its all in the sum.
    We give a value to each position: 32,16,8,4,2,1
    We multiply the value with the number(either 0 or 1)
    if its 0, the result is going to be 0        (32x0 = 0 )
    if its 1, the result is going to be the value(32x1 = 32)
    |0 0 0 0 0 0| = 0
    They are all 0's so we ignore them and add nothing to nothing.
    (0 = 2nd Satomi Sister/Belladona)
    |1 1 1 1 1 1| = 63
    They are all 1's so we start to add giving each position its value. 
    From left to right:
    32+16+8+4+2+1 = 63
    (63 = Eldest Satomi Sister/Tatsuya)
    |1 0 1 0 1 0| = 42
    From left to right:
    32+0+8+0+2+0 = 42
    (42 = 2nd Satomi Sister/Trish)
    |0 1 0 0 1 1| = 19
    From left to right:
    0+16+0+0+2+1 = 19
    (19 = Eldest Satomi Sister/R.Toku)
    If you still dont get it...bummer..lots of books about
    the binary code in yer library and plenty of info in the net.

       with her?
    A.-She gives you a material card of a lvl 62 Persona, also it is
       rumored that she "sets" your tarot reading with the Genie, this
       last one has not be proven yet..maybe I should try it out when
       I have time.
    8.-In order to make Legendary weapons you need LegenBright and an
       Akashic Ring, where do I find them?
    A.-See the Item List FAQ. ^_^
    Random babbling:
    Thou shalt Carry thy feet in the sequence of:
    Dubha  -> P
    Alioth -> E
    Phelpa -> R
    Mergez -> S
    Merak  -> E
    Mizar  -> U
    Alkaid -> S
    Personal Questions about the storyline:
    Who is Maya Okamura?History teacher?
    At the end..if Maya remembered the other side..
    why didnt she forgot about the other side too? Isnt
    that gonna affect "This Side"?
    The following was sent to me to my email..I just copy-pasted it =)
      When the girl at 2xSlash asks you what month you were born, tell her
      "HASTURCOMEFORTH". Then go to Maya's desk at Kismet Pub., and open the box
      next to it. It contains the King In Yellow material card.
      Also, the donation box on the Mifune trail must be full to get the secret
      Persona Junnosuke Kuroda. If you get Tatsunoshin Suou, another secret
      Persona, and filled up the donation box on the trail, Junnosuke
      automatically comes along.

    To the guys at the gamfaqs bulletin board for some answers to
    the questions above. Specially to Archaeopteryx for letting me
    use his FAQ to make the item return table(For easy reference).
