1.1 -------------Intro--------------------

I've been working with Jetfuel, in the making the ultimate faq for Xenosaga for 
sometime now.  I've heard several requests for sections of the mega faq in 
smaller chunks.  So I've taken it upon myself to a least put my contributions in 
bit sized chunks.  This is the first of these.  

The skills below were taken from the game.  Also I translated info from many 
different Japanese Xenosaga web sites to fill in the gaps.  

1.2 -----------Thanks and Email-----------

Please feel free to offer tweaks about translation and the effects of these 
skills.  I can be contacted at asyurei@adelphia.net.

I want to thank most of all "Game Masters of XenoSaga" a great site for info on 
the game in Japanese (http://www.netdene.com/~kusari/xenosaga/).
Also in need of much thanks are "Jetfuel, Duckroll, Axel5, and Olivier Hagu for 
corrections and supporting my translation efforts.
It's imposible to forget to thank "The Ethos Headquearters" for providing a 
great forum for me to post my work (http://www.the-ethos.org/).
