    SECTION 2: INTRODUCTION
    =======================
    Hello, and welcome to my first guide for Red Dead Revolver, Rockstar
    Games' awesome tribute to spaghetti westerns and good old-fashioned
    shoot-'em-ups. If you're a big fan of westerns, I'd definitely suggest
    giving RDR a shot, as it is in my opinion a terrific and massively
    underappreciated piece of work.
    
    The purpose of this guide is to detail the contents of Sheriff Bartlett's
    journal, a massive tome which spans 365 pages. Inside Bartlett's journal
    are detailed entries about the citizens, landscapes and weaponry that
    populate the richly atmospheric Western world of RDR, as well as the keys
    to unlocking its many secrets.
    
    The journal pages themselves are very well done, and quite interesting
    to look at. And don't forget to use the Right Analog stick while viewing
    journal entries to zoom in on them. This is a simple yet effective way to
    examine the page content!
    
    When you first begin RDR, you'll only have access to a few pages. But as
    the game progresses, you'll be able to obtain more and more pages by
    purchasing items from vendors, defeating certain enemies, and passing
    certain checkpoints within the game itself.
    
    Regarding purchasing items to unlock journal pages, please note that
    there are several opportunities to purchase items in Brimstone. If you
    don't see what you want the first time you enter a shop, revisit the shop
    later in the game to see a new selection of items to choose from.
    
    As far as the various unlocking methods are concerned, most are confirmed
    by me as I've completed the game twice and have unlocked nearly all of
    the journal entries. But in cases where I was unable to unlock the
    entries myself (or had the item unlocked already and wasn't sure what it
    did), I referred to the Official Strategy Guide, which unfortunately has
    already proven to be inconsistent in several areas.
    
    There have already been guide errors noted in the unlocking methods of
    Mr. Kelley and Manny Quinn in Multi-Player Mode (the guide doesn't even
    list Manny as playable in MP Mode). Therefore, TAKE SOME OF THESE
    UNLOCKING METHODS WITH A GRAIN OF SALT. And if you can confirm an error
    in this document, please let me know, I'll fix it for the next revision
    and give you credit.
    
    (Note: Please, no e-mails regarding hidden game content, strategy, etc.
    Everything I have to share currently is in this document.)
