    Radiata Stories Skill List and Link List

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This is a list of what skills and who has them in Radiata Stories. 
    Skills are aquired by fighting battles while using link attacks with party 
    member who have skills you do not know. You can only equip one skill at a time
    but you can switch them during battle. Also note while using a link all members
    of the link share their equipped skill. Skill also carry over when you select 
    Strong from Start option when starting a new game.
    Since links are used in acquiring skills I will also list all of them and what
    they do.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -Skills------------------------------------------------------------------------
    To learn new skills you need to have a party member with a skill you do not 
    know and fight 15 battles with them using a link during those battles. You do 
    not have to score a kill just make the link and win the battle. You could make
    a link and break it and it will count toward you getting the new skill.
    
    Skills level up by fighting battles. Skills have a stronger effect when they 
    have more stars. Only the last skill equipped in battle gets credit for level
    up. The number of battles needed to raise to the next level are as follows. 
    1 star-->2 stars is 7 battles.
    2 stars-->3 stars is 9 battles.
    3 stars-->4 stars is 11 battles.
    4 stars-->5 stars is 13 battles. 
    5 stars is the maximum level of a skill.
    
    The first skill list is the non-spoiler list. Only list possible characters on
    first playthru prior to the split. Note, some skills will not be possible to
    obtain at this point of the game.

    -Skill list after split--------------------------------------------------------
    Note before continueing, splitting by sides some skills will have spoilers. 
    Pre split list is good for knowing what skills you should learn before the 
    split as some skills will become unavailable after the split.
    
    Skills lost by split. Skills to learn before split. Also I list what skills are
    unavailable to what sides.
    
    This is end of guide if spoilers bother you. But I only name the skills and not
    the people who have them. So it's minor spoiler. Major would be the skill list
    itself which is after the mentioned skills.

    Only skill not learned the normal way. Must defeat last boss of optional

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -Link Attacks------------------------------------------------------------------
    You must fight battles using links to learn new skills. Here are the different 
    links you can learn. You gain new links by usings the ones you do know in 
    combat. You can only use links when you assigned one to a directional button,
    have 3 or more party members that do not have bad status effects on them, have
    10 or more VP, and Jack is the leader of the party and does not have a negative
    status effect on him as well.
    Links are broken when you have 0 VP, someone in the link gets a status effect,
    someone in the link dies, or take a lot of damage quickly.
    Note while using a link, it disables the abilty to give commands, use items,
    and open the menu screen via the triangle button. Another thing to know is 
    making a link will cancel commands given out before the link. 
    
    Following are the list of links in the order you aquire them and a description
    for the link.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Box Link - The party forms a diamond shape and beats on a single foe. Attack 
    when ! appears above the party members' heads. Surround an enemy and then you 
    should see the signal that attack is ready.
    
    Wave Link - Allies follow the leader's movements and attack the foe in a 
    wave-like formation. Increases speed of party. This one is sorta of hard to set
    up well offensively. Pretty much to use that way you need people with fast 
    attacks and no knockdown or back skills unless the last person. Primarily used
    for running away and regrouping.
    
    Line Link - The party forms a line and forces a wave of power onto the foe.
    Must be in a straight line to preform the attack. Cost 6 VP per attack. This
    link gives you a ranged attacked but is costly to use and slightly difficult
    to move around in. Sometimes moving party members don't line up properly and
    the attack never goes off only regular swings.
    
    Guard Link - Allies box in and protect the leader from attacks. Defense 
    increases for all and a barrier appears when parrying.
    
    Circle Link - When allies stop movement, all get together to form a circle in 
    which HP is restored. A defensive link. Note you can't attack while using this.
    Also parrying stops the healing process.
    
    Wide Link - The party forms a line and each ally forces a wave of power onto 
    the foe. Each attack cost 1 VP. Similar to line link except they all fire in 
    different directions and line up on after another instead of side by side. 
    This link doesn't require allies to be in order for the attack to go off. Note
    that pressing the attack button makes 3 attacks per party member. The easiest 
    link to use in my opinion.
    
    Arrow Link - Allies form a "V" to charge the foe. The party can only move 
    straight and cannot make sudden stops. VP deceases as the party crashes into a 
    target.
    
    Kamikaze Link - With a signal, the allies increase in strength and throw 
    themselves at the foe. An explosion follows, causing damage to allies as well.
    
    Square Link - The party forms a diamond shape and does a spinning tornado 
    attack. Each attack cost 10 VP. Note allies must be in formation for this 
    attack to go off correctly.
    
    Attack Link - Allies line up behind the leader, and as the leader attacks a 
    foe, the allies begin a concentrated attack. A strictly offensive link. You 
    cannot parry but can backstep while using this link. One of the easiest link
    to use. Just attack and everyone rushes the same target, note allies only 
    attack if you do. Only lose VP when getting hit.
