1.  Intro Info: 
-- Hi, welcome to my first attempt at a (completed) faq.  
This is designed to work in conjunction with EChang's excellent faqs, 
which were based on the Japanese version(s) of Star Ocean - TTEoT.  
The Location names were originally displayed in English in the Japanese 
games, and most of the main character's names have been shown in English 
on the Japanese website, as well as other promotional pictures and items.  
Supporting characters names are Edward's own spellings, and taken directly 
from his faqs with his permission.  This should assist anyone that may 
find themselves a tad bit confused when trying to use those faqs, or for 
those just curious in general.

-- Due to the nature of some of these names, there are potential spoilers 
about.  Please be aware of this!

-- Some changes are very minor, some are rather odd.  In the case of the 
bosses and NPCs, I included every one listed in EChang's walkthrough, mainly 
to attempt to keep confusion to a minimum.  Many of these names are left 
unchanged, or are very similar.  If in the case you meet a boss twice, I 
listed them only at the first instance, as by the second or so time you should 
know the correct name.  Many ship and town names are similar, but the Engish 
version tends to be a bit formal, and adds a 'grander' sound to some by adding 
such fancy, longer additions as "Diplomatic Flagship" and whatnot.

-- Obviously, not every character in the game is included.  I only used those 
mentioned in Edward's faqs.

v.1.3 - 9-13-04 - Added in all the spells, and also Sophia and Adray's
specific Battle Skills.  Also added all the creators, and added one or two 
more J to E NPC and Misc. name changes.

v.1.2 - 9-6-04 - Added in battle skills for all characters (with the exception
of Sophia and Adray - they'll be included in the next update with all Spells), 
as well as Active, Support and Tactical skills.  All spells to be included next,
including character-specific and shared ones.  Creators will also be added soon.

v.1 - 9-2-04 - Started faq, including character, location, and misc. names.
