(p02)--Background Story
------------------------

---Once, there was an time when spirits and man lived together.
This time was called "The Age of Gods"...

However, one day the Demon God appeared and in the resulting war,
the land was sunk and cleansed. Although the Demon God was sealed
at the bottom of the land,  the Gods were exhausted and it is 
said that
they are hiding throughout the land.

This is a story that has been passed down about those who lived 
during
that time.

the target you want by using the cursor, then press the O Button. 
Cheers have a lot of uses in battle, such as: raising a 
character's move range, or the ability to dodge attacks for 1 
turn. Also, by using cheers, the friendship level of the two 
characters will increase. Using a cheer does not reduce a 
characters spirit points, but that character will not be able to

________________________________________________________________

(p18)--Battle Techniques
------------------------

--Positioning Your Troops--
---------------------------
Attacking the enemy from the side or back will raise your Damage 
& Accuracy Rate. This also works for the enemy, so when ending 
your turn, it's important to keep this in mind.

--Characters with special move ratings--
----------------------------------------
Character's on mounts have excellent movement rates when moving 
forward, but poor rates when moving to the side or back. Before 
ending your turn, it is a good idea to think about your next 
move, or you may not be able to move as you had predicted. As 
many enemies are mounted, it is important to think about how they 
will move before making your move. 

**Among your troops, Tien, Kurou, and Benkei are of this type.**

--Gaining Experience--
----------------------
You gain experience by attacking enemies and healing your 
comrades. However delivering the finishing blow will result in a 
large amount of experience points for that character.  Therefore 
it is a good idea to use this to level up characters that you 
wish to level up.

--When retreating is a good tactic--
------------------------------------
Even if you retreat from battle, any experience and money gained 
will be kept.  This is a good tactic when you don't think you can 
win the battle. Leveling up by attacking and retreating, you will 
be able to defeat an enemy no problem.

--Pay Attention to the Battle Conditions--
------------------------------------------
Before beginning a battle, the Battle Conditions Screen will be 
displayed. By paying attention to this, you will be informed 
whether there will be backup or not, and other information about 
the enemy. 

--Immortal / Undead Enemies & Enchant Magic--
---------------------------------------------
Ghost Soldiers (亡霊兵) and Ogres(鬼), can not be attacked with 
normal weapons.   By enchanting your character's weapons using 
the arcanum Devil Break Sword(破魔の剣) or Enchant (エンチャント) 
they will be able to attack these enemies. If your character has 
a Sacred Weapon (神器), this arcanum is unnecessary.

--Elemental Attacks--
---------------------
Weapons that are attuned to a certain element will effect attack 
and defense during battle. Adding elements can be done by 
equipping Spirit-Jewels.

火(Fire Element) -- Strong vs Lightening, Weak vs Ice
氷(Ice Element) -- Strong vs Fire, Weak vs Earth
雷(Lightening Element) -- Strong vs Earth, Weak vs Fire 
震(Quake/Earth Element) -- Strong vs Ice, Weak vs Lightening
