    =====Introduction / Legal Stuff=====
    Well, I finally decided to begin research on the "Crystal" system for this
    game. Let me tell you, this is going to be hard. The only resource I have for
    this is play, check, play again :P
         This work has and will take a lot of my time. You steal this and I remove
    your liver with a cold, dull spoon! Just kidding. Seriously though, please
    don'tsteal my work. I didn't put a lot of time and effort into this to see
    someone else claim it. If you want to reproduce this in any way, fine, but you
    need my express permission before you do so. If you find this feeble attempt
    worthy of being published somewhere, I want royalties. You want it on your
    webpage? Ask, and it shall be so, but I retain the right to have it removed at
    any time.

    =====Revision History=====
    v1.0: This is just the beginning. So far I have word priorities, weather
    effects, elements of prioritized keywords, and some field types. More to come
    in next update.
    
    v1.1: Completed prioritized field types.
    
    v1.2: Added Area Level ranges for prioritized keywords.
    
    V2.0: Reformatted the document to plain text. Added section for good keyword
    combinations, the easter egg keywords from the //LIMINALITY DVD, and floating
    giant keywords to keep track of it. Trying to find out if the structures gem
    determines giant appearance.
    
    v2.2: That's it, I give up on figuring out what determines the giant/castle.
    I've come to the conclusion that the keyword combinations work on both servers,
    and that they they are not deretmined by any of the priorities, since
    non-prioritized words can add or remove the object in question. I will keep a
    list of keywords with the appearences, send them in and I'll add them, but
    until someone comes to my door and slaps me with the source code section that
    determines the appearance, I'm through with that. Instead, I'll collect
    keywords that have the floating objects and hope something eventually hits me.
    I've also added dungeon texture/food to the field type list. By the next update
    I'll have gone over weather again to confirm and will probably check Theta
    server level ranges.
    
    v2.4: It's been TOO long since I updated. Too many new games have been released
    and my Dark Age of Camelot addiction has gotten the better of me (anyone
    playing Midgard on the Gawaine server, send a Hi to Kamilie). I've gone over
    some more Floating Object keywords, and made some minor changes to some spots
    in the guide (it'll take a comparison of both versions to see them.) I might
    hold off on further updates till May when Mutation is released, and append it's
    information, as well as the Theta server. Otherwise, I'll start studying the
    Theta server. As usual, any contributions are greatly appreciated. On a special
    note to contributor Vanessa, I apologize for the delay and the confusion. My
    bad :)
    
    v3.0: Ok, I'm tired of this thing DE-formatting itself :P I'm changing the
    table labling to save room and keep line spacing as it should be. The key has
    been expanded to reflect this change. Over the next few updates I will
    experiment with other table formats until I come up with the most compact yet
    easily readable format that I can deal with. As far as the current version
    goes, it should be easily viewable with all versions of notepad and all
    browsers. I've bought my copy of MUTATION and will begin adding information
    as I receive it. This guide is now a .hack project complation and will get it
    posted under each game. Until I complete MUTATION, updates to this guide will
    be sparse, random, and probably only from contributed keywords :P Afterwards,
    I'll make a long-term attempt to fill it, as well as submit my completed save
    like I did last time.
    MESSAGE TO MY CONTRIBUTORS: If your e-mail address has changed, please e-mail
    me. THIS MEANS YOU VANESSA! You're e-mail address failed when I tried to send
    you a message.
    
    v3.01: I'mm adding this as a message to my now steady stream of fans. I
    understand I have not updated this guide in a long time. I have multiple
    reasons for this, most of which are the unending chaos that I call life.
    College, new relationship (which equals no free time) and my interest in 2nd
    Edition AD&D to 3E conversions have taken their toll. Mind you I WILL update
    this guide, especially when I get contributions from you, the readers. I also
    want to thank everyone for their e-mails about how much they like the guide.
    You don't know how happy it makes me to know what I've done has helped people.
    One of my current side projects is a tip guide for the PS2 game Amplitude. Any
    Amp fans that have anything they want to submit to the creation process,
    please do so. Also, if there are any Dungeons & Dragons fans that want
    something converted from a previous edition (one or more monsters, spells,
    items, no full books please) tell me what it is and what book it's from and
    I'll send you my work. Any donations for game resources (game books, game
    disks, etc.) and even college supplies would be greatly appreciated (and will
    put you in my credits on the guide you are supporting, and an acknowledgements
    page soon to be on my crappy website) but are not at all required. Just e-mail
    me for details if you feel so inclined. Everything I do for the gamer populace
    will be free for some time, but any gratuities will help the process.
            Again, I want to thank everyone that has submitted info or even a
    simple "thank you for making this guide". Continue flooding my box and you'll
    keep me in the wonderful mood you've thrown me into.

    :RE: Don't quite understand
    :Author Korm
    :
    :You really shouldn't worry about the area's
    :parameters in the beginning.
    :
    :Beginners should only be concerned with the
    :level of the area.
    :
    :This is the parameter that sets the
    :difficulty of that level, and the higher it
    :is, the more powerful the monsters are
    :(and the better the items).
    :
    :If you combine words randomly, you might get
    :a really strong enemy and die instantly.
    :
    :When you are low, you should use words
    :with low difficulty.
    :
    :Here's a sample word for beginners:
    :
    :Part A: Bursting     Difficulty 1
    :Use this and create a key word.
    
    :Words for Beginners
    :Author: JING
    :
    :These words are also for beginners:
    :
    :Part A: Hidden     Difficulty 1
    :Part A: Expansive     Difficulty 2
    :
    :The highest level of difficulty for an area
    :is Difficulty 5. Though even if you use the
    :words with the same difficultym the type of
    :enemies varies among the servers.
    :
    :Highest enemy in (Delta) server is Level 20.
    :In (Theta) server, the highest is Level 30.
    
    :Area Level Info

    :Part A: Boundless     Difficulty 2
    :
    :This is also for beginners
    
    :Good Info
    :Author: 01
    :
    :
    :There are some weird parameters known as
    :Monster and Items.
    :
    :These parameters can change the
    :appearance rate of monsters and items from
    :the area level where it's been set.
    :
    :If you use these two well, it gets pretty easy
    :to collect items.
    :
    :The items you can get in an area are directly
    :related to the area level, but the enemies get
    :stronger, and it gets pretty dangerous.
    :
    :If you choose a negative word for Monsters,
    :the rate of appearances for items in the area
    :will not change, but the difficulty of the
    :monsters that appear will decrease.
    :
    :Also, if you choose a possitive items word, you
    :can increase the rate of appearance for appearing
    :items in that area.
    :
    :The words that I know are:
    :
    :        Word        Monsters
    :
    :Part B: Bounded     -10
    :Part B: Evil Eyed    -8
    (Author's note: Ok, as of now I have not begun this stage of word research,
    but I can guess this is refering to when items come out of portals instead
    of monsters.)
    (Second note: From my random research, it seems my original note was only half
    right. This seems to also affect how often a monster drops a chest, and maybe
    how often that chest contains one of the items on that monster's list. More on
    this as I continue my research.)
