[I. Introduction]
Welcome to the not-so-fantabulous Star Ocean Till the End of Time Affection
FAQ! This guide is here to provide a better understanding of the PA and
Affection Level systems in SO3 for those who cannot or are not interested in
purchasing the official strategy guide. It's also here because I've just always
wanted to make a FAQ, and affection levels are among my favorite things in
games. :3 So, then! Let's get started.

[II. Affection Levels - What they do]
Affection levels are, simply put, how much your characters like each other.
Most of these matter jack-all, honestly, so unless people really want to know
or I just find something amusing, I'll only be putting the bases and changes
that affect Fayt's affection towards others and vice versa.

Yes, you heard me. Unlike the game's predecessors, boosting the characters'
affection levels for not-Fayt characters doesn't matter. Don't affect the
endings at all, to my knowledge, and no affection levels matter during the
course of the game itself. Such is our woe, of course.

SUMMARY (because I'm a bit of a wordy dumbass): Fayt's affection levels towards
other characters and vice versa affect the endings. The rest do squat. :D

[III. Affection Levels - How they work, and starting levels]
How do affection levels work? Very simply! (No, really.) They work on a
point-based system, with most choices you make throughout the game adding
points, subtracting points, or, in some cases, doing nothing.

MAJOR NOTE: To get an ending with a character, be aware of two important things.

1. The character must be a member of your party by the time of the final boss
fight. ("Party" as in general party, not battle party.)
2. Fayt's affection for the character must be 21 points or higher, while the
character's affection for Fayt must be 50 points or higher.

That being said, here are the starting affection levels!

OTHERS' starting affection levels for Fayt
------------------------------------------
Sophia - 26
Cliff - 19
Maria - 22
Nel - 19
Roger - 21
Albel - 17
Peppita - 20
Mirage - 20
Adray - 22

FAYT'S start affection levels for others
----------------------------------------
Sophia - 24
Cliff - 19
Maria - 21
Nel - 17
Roger - 19
Albel - 16
Peppita - 20
Mirage - 23
Adray - 21

UNIMPORTANT BUT AMUSING FACT: Albel's affection level for Nel starts out as 20,
while hers for him is 15. Bwahahaha. >D Poor baby.

*cough* Right! Anyway, that's how things are. Now onto the next part!

[IV. Items that affect levels]
There are five of these, and despite their descriptions, all of them decrease
affection levels for whoever you use them on. This, believe it or not, is a
/very good thing/, provided you don't screw up. Anyway! The five items and
their base prices are:
Endorphin Boost, 18 fol
Pheromone Enhancer, 36 fol
Tears of Aphrodite, 26 fol
Tears of Ishtar, 86 fol
Tears of Venus, 56 fol

All of these reduce the emotion points of the character you them on by one.
You get them through item creation, specifically compounding. All of the
items can be made by Gossam, Fayt, and Peppita, but you can also use Milenya
for Tears of Venus. Milenya can be recruited in Arias' temple for 3200 fol.
Gossam
can be recruited on Peterny's north path using the Potion of Youth (Fake),
which has
a base price of 5 fol, and can be made through compounding by using Puffy,
Cliff, Roger, Albel, and/or Peppita.

For more information on how to use them, see the multiple ending section of
EChang's Private Action FAQ, as I am just that damned lazy. ^^;;

[V. The PAs]
The meat and flesh and squishy things of this FAQ, these are the only boosters
and primary decreasers of affection levels. That said, let's move on!

[VI. History]
November 6, 2004 - Released.

November 17, 2004 - Corrected typos and some information in the items section.
Also added some information to the items section.

July 21, 2005 - Corrected PA#52, messed around with the spacing to try to make
it easier to read, added to Credits.

[VI. Credits]
Most of this information if from the Official Strategy Guide by BradyGAMES.
Couldn't have done it without them, yo.

Related to the above, thanks to Viett and those involved in the
creation of his FAQ correcting errors in the BradyGAMES guide, which
has helped in fixing erroneous information.

Big thanks to the guys, gals, and not-gendered(?) of GameFAQs' boards
for helping me and expressing interest in this FAQ.

Most of all, I would like to thank my poor abused fingers and arms
for not giving out on me while I typed out a veritable novella
for this FAQ.
