                                 Introduction (I)
    ==============================================================================
    
    First of all, thank you for checking out my findings in this short, but to
    the point walkthrough on how to get all of the 9 Rare Items in Rogue Galaxy.
    I've already logged more than 120 hours playing through this innovative game
    and I'm sure there will be even more to come. Hope it'll help some of you out
    
    ==============================================================================
                                 Rare Items (II)
    ==============================================================================
    Whilst playing Rogue Galaxy you'll notice that there's a whole page under
    the "items" tab for something called "rare items". There are 9 of the items in
    all and they require quite a bit of work to find / acquire. Since I've already
    invested quite a bit of time into getting them all and couldn't find a lot of
    help on the net, I've written it all down for you to use in your search.

    1.1  Written by Felix (feelix on GameFaqs)
    1.11 Minor changes. thanks to Erik Borden for pointing out that Jaster doesn't
         start with the Jungle costume, it's found in a chest on Juraika. He also
         pointed out a couple of spelling errors. Thanks for the feedback!
    1.12 Ironed out what I hope to be, the rest of the spelling errors.
    1.15 Thanks to Paul Lee Williams III, Liliput, Richard Delancy and Ruby_sauce
         for pointing out that you have to talk to Minty before getting the eighth
         rare item.
