INTRODUCTION
============================================================================

Welcome to the first FAQ I ever made.  I made this because I love Soul 
Calibur games and weapons. In addition, I like to help people.

============================================================================
VERSION HISTORY
============================================================================

Verison 1.0: (11.25.05)

Origins Section and fixed minor errors.

Version 1.2 (12.09.05) Added Discipline Section, how to unlock each weapon 
under the weapon properties (shown in {} brackets), changed the How to
Unlock Weapons section, and fixed more minor errors.

============================================================================
HOW TO UNLOCK WEAPONS
============================================================================

How to unlock a specific weapon is listed under the weapon properties (shown
in {} brackets).

However, if you don't feel like going through Tale of Souls, Chronicles of 
the Sword, or Soul Arena, you always can unlock weapons or anything for that
matter by fighting a certain number of battles. However, The Ancient weapons 
CANNOT be unlocked using this method.

============================================================================
WEAPON EXPLAINATION BUTTON (SELECT BUTTON)
============================================================================

When you pick your weapon (not during Chronicles of the Sword), there may be 
pictures that show what special effects it possesses.  If you have no idea 
what they mean, press the select button and it will explain it to you... or 
you can just read this FAQ.

============================================================================
WEAPON ORIGINS
============================================================================

The origins are based on the actual weapons, not the origin of the name.

Blue Crystal Rod - A key item from Namco's Tower of Druaga series.

Cat Claws - The Mouser's weapon from Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, but it's 
really just a name for whatever dirk he holds.

Damascus Sword - A special and long lost forging technique was used to 
create the unique wave pattern on the steel blade. In addition, the blade 
contains nanotubes, which increase its cutting power.

Excalibur - It's King Arthur's sword, and the name means cut or above steel.
Excalibur's scabbard protects him from bleeding to death. However, this
particular Excalibur is not the same as King Arthur's. It's from Namco's
Tower of Daruga, and it was originally called the Hyper Sword.

Faust - Siegfried's sword from Soul Edge/Blade.  It broke after he defeated
Soul Edge, who possessed Cervantes's corpse at the time.

Galley Oar - Musashi Miyamoto used this and carved it into a bokken, a 
wooden sword. He killed Kojiro Sasaki with this in a duel.

Glam - The sword Sigurd used to kill the dragon, Fafnir, and it's sharp 
enough to split an anvil. However, it's really supposed to be a viking 
sword, and it's actual name is Gram. The result was Glam due to poor 
Japanese translation of mixing up L and R.

Jingu Staff - Sun Wukong, the Monkey King, used this staff. It's made of 
iron, and had the ability to change it's length. It's more accurately 
called the Ruyi Jingu Bang.

Kagekiyo - A weapon from Namco's Genpei Toma Den, also known as The Genji 
and the Heike Clans.

Masamune - A katana made by Goro Nyudo Masamune. These things are priceless
pieces of art today.  There is a legend where Masamune and Muramasa were put 
to the test to see which sword was better. Masamune won because it contained 
spiritual power that prevents unneccessary bloodshed and violence, unlike 
Muramasa.

Monohoshizao - Kojiro Sasaki's nodachi, a very long katana measuring over 90
centimeters or 3 feet. It's name means "Drying Pole" because of it's enormous
length. It was forged by Nagamitsu Bizen.

Murasame - This is a katana is from the novel Nanso Satomi Hakkenden. It has
the ability to summon rain. DO NOT CONFUSE THIS WITH MURAMASA, BECAUSE THEY 
ARE TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SWORDS.

Orichalcum - This weapon is made from the legendary metal of Atlantis, and 
it bears the same name as it. It's value is second to gold.

Vajra - A very symbolic weapon that supposedly combines the elements of a 
diamond's hardness and a thunderbolt's unstoppable force.

Valkyrie - A weapon from Namco's The Legend of Valkyrie.
