| Section 0 - Introduction |
<-------------------------->
(PENDING UPDATES)

--> Shameless plug on the author.
I'm a 21, Chinese male. Currently residing in South-East Asia. I am madly
involved in gaming, anime and manga. My other interest are PCs and cars.
Part-time student and part-time worker, I have still got a long ways to go
in life. My spoken language is English, Cantonese, Hokkien and little Malay.
I can understand Japanese and Mandarin, though I can't converse fluently in it.
I can read English and most Hiragana/Katakana. Not fluent in Kanji sadly.

<-------------------------->
| Section 1 - Readme First |
<-------------------------->
OK this section is for me to explain what exactly is this file about. Anyways
I started this file as a backup of the conversations/files that occur during
Drakengard gameplay. At first it started as a Plot Analysis, but then I found
that the story is quite straightforward and doesn't require any additional
in-depth plot analysis (like the one I did for Fatal Frame 2) so I decided
against doing a Plot Analysis and instead convert the information I collected
as a Game Script/File FAQ. Some of the scripts are quite good and the stories
written for the weapons are quite worth the time to read, so I am just going
to continue typing and keep a typed version of the files and scripts for
Drakengard. Anyways a plot analysis haven't been ruled out though, maybe if
there's someone who will need it, I might do it X-x. BTW, this is a long term
project, and I don't think I will have Version 1 ready too soon, seeing the
huge amount of scripts available in the game, it will take quite some time
to finish playing and typing out all the scripts.
