    This faq is split up into parts.  First, I'd list the area name, and the town
    name.  Then, I've split up the town into the blacksmith, item shop, accessory
    shop, and the Raichin Tavern.  Within these sub-categories, I have listed the
    item's name, effect, and purchase price.
    
    Area Name - Town Name
    
    Old Lady's House (remove curse condition)
    Blacksmith (buy swords, upgrade the ginmei sword)
    Item Shop (buy health items, and chi recovery items)
    Accessory Shop (buy "armor", items that affect mind, body and technique)
    Raichin Tavern (sleep to recover health or eat to recover health)

    No matter where you go to get your sword upgraded, it will cost the same amount
    of steel orbs and taichi.  You can upgrade your ginmei sword six times, each
    time increasing the amount of damage it deals.  Head to the blacksmith for
    this service.
    
    To fully temper your sword, you would have to spend 121 000 taichi over a long
    period of time.  You cannot skip sword forms, so you'd have to work up from the
    sixth form to the first with that huge amount of coinage and steel orbs.

    Shinbu can store items and taichi in the storage house.  You can upgrade the
    storage house to hold more items and more taichi.  Account types can't be
    skipped, so you'd have to work up to the desired account type.  You'd spend a
    total of 7500 taichi to upgrade your account fully.

    You can download extra toys from Climax, if you have a WLAN access.  These

    there.  You have to enter the appropiate passwords for whatever item you want.
    
    One note - the European version of Kingdom of Paradise doesn't support WLAN
    downloads.  (It doesn't have the option for WLAN downloads in the main menu.)
    Instead you'd download packs of bonuses from the web to put on your memory
    stick.  There are five packs currently out right now, and you can get them at

    =                          Freestyle Scroll Locations                         =
    ===============================================================================
    
    Freestyle scrolls are bugei in which you can arrange kenpu however you wish.
    Each freestyle scroll starts off with "their name plus one" kenpu slots, and
    by using them frequently, you can train them to ten kenpu slots.  For example,
    the third freestyle scroll will have four slots when you first obtain it.
    
    There are a total of five freestyle scrolls, and you'd have to get them in
    order.  If you try to skip getting one, the NPC will refuse, saying something
    about the scroll before it.  Getting all of the scrolls requires a lot of
    walking back and forth between towns, so stock up on health items for the
    travels.
    
    1)  In Hokusai, Northern Genbu after witnessing the cut-scene in which Eikoukou
    or Eigen's master gets killed.  You get a mission to head to the Raichin tavern
    and a kid stops you to tell you about a scholar finding something useful for
    bugei.  Find the red-robed scholar named Kairkou to receive it.
    
    2)  Southern Suzaku, there is a man standing behind a bunch of explosive
    barrels, detonate them and talk to him to receive your second freestyle scroll.
    
    3)  In Chikuan, Eastern Seiryu after getting the first scroll from Kairkou.
    Near the school, there is a fence...head near the lakeshore to find an old man
    who gives the third one to you.
    
    4)  Western Byakko, there is a path that's under a bridge.  Head down it to
    talk to an old man near a box and some Seima technology to receive it.  This
    bridge is the path before the old lady's house and the blacksmith.  Get this
    one before the boss battle with Suzaku's clan god - the phoenix...otherwise
    the entrance will be blocked.
    
    5)  Head back to Northern Genbu, Hokusai.  Near the accessory and item shops
    coming from Eastern Seiryu, there is an upper deck with an old man with a cane.
    He says that he has something to give to his old friend named Gakuichi, and
    then he forgets what it is if you don't have the other scrolls.

    =                               Training Shinbu                               =
    ===============================================================================
    
    Shinbu can increase his stats by leveling up, and by powerleveling mind,
    technique and body, he can make himself stand out from other clan members.
    Powerleveling involves using only chi arts or bugei to fight.
    
    For bugei, it's easier, as you can strike the Kirin dirt troops many times
    before they turn back into sand.  Training the mind attribute can be done with
    a lot of nectars and a lot of enemies.  Blast the enemies with any chi art and
    then refill chi using the nectars or chi cakes.  The hardest attribute to
    powerlevel is body, as sometimes Shinbu dies before he can level up.
    
    Mind - Adds to the damage done by using chi arts of any type, increase this
    attribute by fighting with only chi arts.
    
    Technique - Shinbu's total physical damage, increase this attribute by
    battling with only bugei and kenpu.  (Use the freestyle scroll, if possible.)
    
    Body - Shinbu's total defense/resistance, increase this attribute by allowing
    enemies to hit you and not using healing items...only rely on level ups to heal
    you.
