                             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.

==============================================================================
               Finding / Getting the 9 Rare Items (III)
