	Opening Lyrics [LYC]
===============================================================================

Who said we are lost again in this lonely world
I say we can start again we're on the same ship
It's called starship Earth


It is not too late it's our home so don't say that it's fate
We must not give up to build our future on our dreams


We will never lie down to die
But we'll find a way to survive
We all have somebody we love we know that's we're here


We battle for freedom
It is a battle against the Dark
I have my dreams you know I'm not afraid of bleeding It is the time!


We battle for tommorow
It is a battle against time
and we can do miracles so take my hand we need to save this world!

PP - This is the guage for the weapons, a gun uses up the gauge, or a special
	attack for a sabre or anything similar (triangle). It restores slowly
	on its own, however there are items and PP restore cubes to restore the 
	guage fully. (this is still a guess)


Your AI companions will mostly stand there and look pretty while you get
surrounded by monsters.


===============================================================================
	CHAPTER 1 - Of Light and Darkness [CH1]
===============================================================================

After a juicy intro about the history of the world PSU sets in...

OH YES! HOVERBOARD! GO MARTY GO! 88 MILES PER HOU... BOOM!
Marty is hit by the PSU Delorian......

I mean Ethan is hit by a car that the priestess was riding on and she healed 
his leg... a little story teaser aaaand...

Anime style opening with Kelli Sae doing vocals singing engrish = instant 
classic. (In fact, this whole game and it's chapters works like an anime)

Ethan's sister was waiting on him to go to a ceremony, as you walk around,
the pedestrians closest to you dissappear (DO NOT PANIC, THAT IS NORMAL!).
Take the time to look around with R3 to sight see if you want.

ok, enough of that, head to where everything is across the dome.
Between the 2 ramps (closed), there are the elevator entrances, either one 
works.

select 4F, then turn right and walk straight to the last entrance on the right.

The two bumps into a weird guy who claimed they took his wallet, but in fact,
he was the thief. Ethan follows the guy (watch how the guy runs/walks XD).

So... go down to the only open path (he's actually waiting for you), and get 
another cutscene. The Vol Brothers, are here to kick butt.

Things to notice:
- All characters' hands are frozen in that pose, so when Ethan was supposed to 
punch "Carrot top"s head, he's poking him.
- Lumia's, Ethan's sister, screams are hilarious.

Blah blah blah and more cutscenes (something BIG happened)

Once you're able to play again, keep going to the only path avalible.

Then you can finally start fighting. Leogini gives you a communicator, and a
weapon set. Go straight, the blue orb is the save point, press circle to save.
Leogini will keep contacting you thoughout.

NOTE: YOU CAN'T PAUSE. The monsters will chase after you; they can even go
through doors.

So I'll leave you to kick it PSO style till another important thing shows.

When you explore around and see a loop on the upper right of the radar, there's
a sword in the first crate. You can equip that by pressing start, menu icon 2,
select the sword on the list (first one), press circle, first option, and
select the next empty slot below the first weapon set.
Go back out (X X X) Hold X, and use D-pad to select the weapon set you want.
The left column are the item shortcuts, the one already set is monomate 
(healing).

(To use mono, hold X and choose the icon on the left column and let go of X)
(You can navigate the "X" menu with L1 and R1 instead of D-pad)

Advancing till you see two of the Vol Bros (they're dancing idly~). Behind them
are the save point and a glowing platform, that is the HP restore platform.
Step on that and stay there for dosages of HP+ (dosages meaning you have to 
stand there and wait for the HP bar to grow bit by bit).

You'll see some locked doors along the way, the keys will show as a red dot on 
the radar after you clear a room of monsters. Pick up with circle, then
use them on the reader.

Ok, I'm gonna stop till you find the third brother...

Found him? Are they dancing? Good.

that's a mission complete for you, and you're on to another thing.
keep walking and you'll hear someone call for help under rubbish.
Leogini will give you Goggles, equip those goggles (start, 2nd icon, scroll to
category 3 with D-pad, select goggle and equip. Kinda like the sword but for 
the other column).

Select goggle from the "X" menu, and press square to use it, adjust the view 
to the transparent orb and it'll confirm. Then exit the goggle and attack the 
orb to clear the rubble.

Go straight and you'll be saving a few more people along the way and also 
clearing paths with your new tool.

You'll eventually reach an area where you found your sister and a boss appears.

~~~BOSS~~~
Alien with tentacles and eh...

Attacks: close swipes, tentacle dig through ground and pops out

My tactic: keep attacking with sabre and maybe gun too and keep using 
monomates.

~~~~~~~~~~

CUTSCENE and CHAPTER 1 END

Mini anime-esque credits, then it'll show these options:
Go to save screen
Advance to next chapter

===============================================================================
	CHAPTER 2 - Typical Lives (Remlia and her son) [CH2]
===============================================================================

NEATO MOM! My favorite show's coming on! "It's called starship Earth~"

3 months later, Ethan became a guardian from showing off his skills.

Your robot servant Pete wakes you up, select the last option to skip through 
a bunch of infos.

YOUR ROOM:
left side- computer, they send you info and news here, other guardian can
		call you.
right side- your bed, sadly you can only SIT on it, and press X to switch pose
Door to the right- useless?
back left- storage platforms on the ground, save point, and your lovely front 
		door.

Go to Level 5, you can only use the ramps, there'll be a few stuff happening 
along the way.

Talk to the lady behind the counter and she'll grant access to Planet Parum.
Go to the first entrance from the left to aboard and select Planet Parum.


~~~AT PLANET PARUM~~~

Ethen will look towards the East tunnel after he's done yapping, go to that 
tunnel. Then go to the Guardian base (has similar design and format as the
Level 5 one at home). Talk to the girl behind counter there, then head to the 
other end through the West tunnel to the shopping district.

Toward the left is a bunch of tables and a refreshment counter, walk to the 
table.

CUTSCENE! (remember the guy with gray hair, you'll need to add him later)

Then Karen will teach you about parties.
During the long dialogue, she'll show you what happens when YOU get added.

After that, add and unadd her by talking to her, second option, then first 
option (yes), repeat to unadd.

Then add her again, and go back to the PPT central area, find the guy with 
grey hair and add him, go to flyer base and choose 1st option and the 1st 
mission. 

SAVE SAVE SAVE, GO GO GO, KILL KILL KILL, HUNT FOR ITEMS!

Cutscene:
Your allies' mobile vehicle comes in and there's a little feud going on,
the cutscene ends with Mr. Angry Armor-man calling you and your party members 
low-life.

Go to the door right next to the one you came in, there'll be another cutscene

Cutscene:
A SEED Core falls from the sky!! Karen checks its stats with her visor.

Save spot and PP restore and HP restore on the map after the cutscene, if
anyone in your party's hurt, have them stand in the HP recover spot
(Shadow the Hedgehog warp?) since there are no ways you can use monomates on 
them.

After going through the tunnel, you'll be in a different envionment: 
everything's on fire!

Karen will give you a new tool, equip it by going to menu (start), select the
second square, number 3, select the tool (???????? Photon Eraser (9
characters)) above the meseta/coins.

Select the first option and set it to one of the empty slots, you can use it by
holding down X, and scroll with L1 till you get to the icon for the tool 
(phaser like).

Just like the goggles, which is what we'll actually use first to scan for these
4 orbs on the ground near the Pod. Scan them and make them all "appear", switch
to the phaser and zap away. Once those orbs are neutralized, attack the pod
normaly with a few swing and you're done.

It drops a Cosmo Atomizer (????????? (9 characters)), which restores 
ALL HP, and a key card for the gate to the right. (might drop something 
different)

Some of themonsters will light you on fire, and there's no items (to my
knowledge) that can stop that fire, but you can walk away and let that fire 
stop burning.

You'll encounter more of those SEED cores, guess that's the objective now,
wipe out enemies and their SEED cores. The orbs will be more scattered.

Last area will have you fight the same creature you fought as boss in the first
chapter, and get 2 red keys.

Mission Complete! But chapter 2 isn't over, go straight to see a broken sign
where a ranch (your original destination?) once stood.

A creepy kid comes out *shudders* and leaves you trapped in the ranch.
Monsters spawn and the shield's off for some reason. Save spot and HP restore 
further down.

Go to the tunnel to the left and youll see the kid escape through the same spot
where you entered... which proves how much of a loser you and your party are.

more monsters and gates and possibly humorous situations... Hey! go to first 
person view (R3) and check out the sky! Ech...

Save spot after more of those stuff

Cutscene:
The team talk about Relics, and this huuuge version of one of those monsters
that charges at you appears.

~~~Boss~~~
Big version of crawling monster

To defeat:
attack from it's rear, or better yet, try and get it so you're totally jammed
inside the monster's polygons as he back up into you and slash away.
It'll raises it's front legs up and slam the ground and paralyze you for a few 
seconds.

Mainly front attacks, and slamming attack.

If your party members die, they'll come back when you hang around long enough 
and not die yourself.

~~~~~~~~~~

Cutscene:
little boy tells them to stop hurting the boss, and says something about his dad
and a promise... not gonna spoil it.

CHAPTER 2 ENDS


===============================================================================
	CHAPTER 3 - Relics [CH3]
===============================================================================

Nice crotch shot of Ethan at the start~

Girl at F5 guardian base, she unlocks some stuffs (don't know what they are 
yet, I know onw of them is the free mission (meaning you can play that mission
any time)).

Go to the PPT to Parum and there'll be a lengthy convo between you and the gray
hair guy, he gives you his Guild Card.

Go to Parum and Karen'll give you hers

Now you can add them from the menu, select the 4th square, the first option to 
add and then select their names (the little icon on the most right to their 
name indicates if they're in your party already or not).

Then it's to the east tunnel you go and to the flyer base, straight ahead.
And go for the free mission.

After that, head on over to the Guardian Base, the other building on the East
side. A cutscene automatically plays and a new character is introduced,
Dr. Bowlcut-dyed-red man  (for actual character info, there's a link to those
at the start XD). That's one scary hair-doo. New mission unlocked.

Let's hope that hair-doo doesn't haunt your dreams tonight.

You know what to do then, right? Flyer base and choose the new mission.
(1st choice in the mission list)

Take a look at the info and you can see the numbers 3-3, that's the party
requirements, (min) three people to (max) three people. Choose the free mission
(one below) and the number's 1-4, up to 4 people in your party can do the 
mission.
