    (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.

    This section is to list up the number of chapters and its description/type
    that you will encounter/unlock for Drakengard.

    warped image of his face. The greater a man's greed, the uglier his reflection
    becomes.
    When the merchant looked into the blade, he saw a reflection more hideous than
    any other. He could not bear to see the ugly face, and swore never again look
    at the weapon's shining surface.
    But one day, a demon whispered in his ear, and he was again tempted to look
    into the blade. There he saw a face so abominably deformed and repulsive that
    he turned the weapon on himself and cut off his own head.

    There was once a small village that made its livelihood from rearing cattle.
    But it was terrorized by a pack of wolves that slaughtered the villagers'
    livestock each and every night.
    Desperately, the villagers tried to protect their herds, but they were
    defenceless against the wily white wolf that led the pack. Each night, more
    livestock was lost.
    As the situation grew more grave, some began to talk of abandoning their homes.
    At that, the quietest villager of all took up his spear and stepped out into
    the night.
    Two days later, the white wolf was found dead in the woods, impaled by the
    spear. The villagers raised the weapon over the village gate in hope that one
    day it might greet the silent one's return.

    Weapon History   :-
    An imperial archaelogist unearthed this weapon's blade from the ruins of an
    ancient holy place. Believed to be fossilized remains of some beast, the
    substance was incredibly hard.
    With great care and reverence, the scientist tried to sharpen the rock. But
    the substance was impervious to fire, to acid, and to all the tools of his
    workshop.
    Driven mad by the unyielding substance that say reproachfully before him, the
    scientist smashed it against his head again and again till he fell dead of
    his wounds.
    The darkly glimmering subsstance was the claw of an earth dragon, and only
    human blood can sharpen its edge. And so for ignorance did another scientist
    die.

    Weapon History   :-
    When the great shrine was built, young women were chosen to be sacrifices.
    They plunged this kris sword into their own hearts. The blade glimmers with 
    the souls of its young victims.
    The first sacrifice was a respected and pious believer. The pure woman was
    chosen to serve as the foundation stone of the new shrine.
    The second sacrifice was a kind girl of the village. Though sad to be chosen
    for death, she consoled herself with the knowledge that her sacrifice would
    help others.
    The third sacrifice was a girl who made her living as a thief. She cursed the
    gods angrily as her life was taken. At the moment the sword struck home, it
    coiled and writhed like a wounded snake.

    Weapon History   :-
    A sword serrated like a saw, able to cut through enemy weapons. But with each
    use, vibrations shake the user's arm, causing the flesh to turn weak and
    translucent like wax.
    Many, many centuries ago, there was a brave knight who fought and defeated
    countless enemies. But as he fought, his flesh became paler and paler.
    Then came a war on which the fate of the kingdom hung in balance. The knight
    took the head of the enemy general and won the battle. But he had grown so
    pale as to be transparent.
    As the soldiers celebrated the victory, a single arrow struck the knight
    through his heart. But none could see the invisible knight, and his death
    went noticed by none.
