                        This Princess Maker 2 FAQ Copywrite 2000, 
                        2001 by Val Shrum, AKA: Nuriko.  
                        I've put a lot of hard work into this.
                        No reproduction or distribution is allowed without 
                        permission from me.  Emaling me and getting no response
                        probably means a /no/ until I respond with otherwise.
                        This FAQ is for Princess Maker 2 for the PC, Sega
                        Saturn, and Dreamcast versions.  I have included notes and 
                        tricks for both versions.  If you have any questions, 
                        comments, please do not hesitate to contact me at my email 
                        address.  - nuriko@maison-otaku.net

                I've had a pretty extensive collection of Princess Maker webpages 
    over the years.  I suddenly had the realization of "Hey, why not write a FAQ of
    sorts?"  I've been visiting Gamefaqs.com for years, and there aren't ANY for 
    the other Princess Maker games.  So... I'm going to write a collection of FAQS,
    all of which have to do with the Princess Maker series.  Hopefully they'll be
    useful to someone.  I almost thought someone would have come out with at least
    the other games faqs by now.  Oh well!  I'll try to be as helpful as possible.
    If statments from this FAQ seem awfully familiar, you probably have been to my 
    Princess Maker Nexus Webpage at some point in your child raising careers.  
    It's easier just to quote what I've already written instead of starting fresh
    and new. Anywhos... do you want to see pictures and stuff from the games?   
    Check out the above said webpage, and please let me know if you enjoy this FAQ
    or want to let me know about something at my email address of 
    nuriko@maison-otaku.net.

    Updated to Version 1.5: Added where to get the Royal Harp.  Thanks to everyone 
    who emailed.  I had gotten so many emails on the subject around the same time,
    that it's hard to give credit where credit is due.  Most the emails were really 
    vague, but gave just enough information on how to get the darn thing.  Thanks 
    everyone! I only gave it a +.5 because it wasn't that drastic of a change.  
    Also added The Princess Maker Collection info down below in the "Other Games" 
    portion, and added information that this FAQ can/will cover the PM Collection 
    version as well.
    
    Just to clarify:  All notes listed here for PC version pertain to those on 
    The Princess Maker Collection version of Princess Maker 2.  The only thing
    that cannot be done would be to edit any files or keyboard commands.  Other
    than that, it plays the exact same way.

    ----------------------------------
    1) Introduction                  |
    ----------------------------------
    
    Princess Maker is a game created by Gainax.  You may know of Gainax through
    their animated features before their video game creations.  They are the 
    popular folks behind Neon Genesis Evanglion, Gunbuster, Nadia: Secret of Blue
    Water, Otaku No Video, and a great deal of others I cannot recall.  It
    originally started back in 1991 with a simple game titled "Princess Maker".  
    It was pushed off as a "Childcare Simulation Game" and was released for the 
    IBM PC.  Eventually it had spawned into a rather extensive series of games, 
    including a Princess Maker 2 and 3, plus a Playstation RPG of sorts called 
    Princess Maker: Go! Go! Go! Princess, a Princess Maker Puzzle game, and a Quiz
    game called "Princess Maker Q". 
    
    Princess Maker 2 is the second game in the series.  The plot of this game is
    you (the father) are a great warrior who saved the country from demons.  The 
    King of of the country honors you as hero, giving you a place to live in the 
    kingdom and a yearly payment in the amount of 500G year.  A god approaches you 
    because of your status, bestowing a child upon you.  The god asks you to raise 
    the child as if it were your own.  This is the beginning of Princess Maker 2.  
    This FAQ is composed of information gathered from the Japanese Sega Saturn 
    version of the game, and the English Beta version for the PC.  Some tricks 
    that work in the PC version may not work in the Saturn version.  I'll mention
    where, as it is the SAME exact game save for voice acting and a better 
    soundtrack (Saturn version).  
    
    -----------------------------------
    2) Options                        |
    -----------------------------------
    
    When you start the game, you are given several options and start off with 500
    gold.  All of which actually determine your daughters future.  I will explain 
    what the options are, in order that they appear.
    
    a) Family Name
    This really doesn't mean much.  It would just be the name that people refer to 
    you as.  Usually in interaction with your daughter.  Let's say we chose the 
    name "Deathbringer".  The townspeople would go "Oh look!  It's the daughter of
    Deathbringer!".  If you mash a bunch of buttons at this prompt (PC) you will
    get the default name of Olive Oyl and it will zip past all the options 
    straight to the game.
    
    b) Daughters Name
    This is the name you choose for your daughter.  You can name her "Skullface" 
    and it wouldn't matter in her future.  She may comment something loverly 
    like "Wow, Skullface is such a beautiful name!  I love it!"
    
    c) Your Daughters Birthday
    This is where your choices actually matter.  Your daughters birthday is what 
    determines things like her immediate interests, her immediate / already born in 
    skills.  You have a choice of ALL the days of the year, including February 29th.
    Your daughters birthday is in the year 1200.

    d) Your age
    This is the age you choose.   You can say you're age 2.  It doesn't really
    matter, but it does seem weird that a 1 year old would be raising a 10 year
    old.  Try to choose SOMETHING that makes sense.  In the Saturn version, it
    will only allow you to choose a two digit birthday.  
    
    e) Your Birthday
    This is almost important, in the aspect of if your daughter loves you very 
    much, she will certainly give you gifts and bake you a cake!  Oh, you're
    such a lucky fellow.
    
    f) Your Daughters Bloodtype
    This is somewhat important.  There are four blood types available.  
    Bloodtype is actually very important in japanese culture, and will determine
    a little bit more of your daughters personality and starting skills.  Here 
    is an explaination of the bloodtype meanings.  They currently have no bearing
    as to what skills are immediately born into, and it won't affect gameplay.
    This is more for reference in Princess Maker 3 than it is two.  Either way..  
    here is what I have found in researching about the four blood types.
    
    A - People of this blood type are honest, introverted, nervous, loyal, 
    perfectionistic, orderly, detail-oriented, industrious, idealistic, 
    soft-spoken and careful.
    Positive: Orderly, Law-Abiding, Fastidious, Soft-Spoken and Fashionable.
    Negative: Picky, Selfish, Secretive, Pessimistic, Inflexable, and Reckless 
    when drunk.
    
    At the end of each month, your daughter will have +2 stress.  No way around
    that.
    
    B - People of this blood type are outgoing, optimistic, adventurous, 
    flexible, passionate, creative, unconventional and have excellent 
    concentration.
    Positive: Independant, Flexable, Candid, Sensitive, Passionate, and Persuasive.
    Negative: Unpredictable, Indiscreet, Lazy, Impatient, and Overbearing.
    
    At the end of each month, your daughter will have -2 stress.  Very good.
    
    AB - People of this blood type are proud, diplomatic, discriminating, natural
    leaders, great organizers, rational and imaginative.
    Positive: Rational, Calculating, Honest, Diplomatic, Organized, and Strong.
    Negative: Unforgiving, Playboy, Easily Offended, Too conservative, Nitpicker, 
    and hard to know.
    
    At the end of each month, your daughter will have +2 stress.  No way around
    that.
    
    O - People of this blood type are over-worker, insecure, emotional, powerful 
    leaders, goal-oriented, enthusiastic, optimistic and good at business.
    Positive: Healthy, Idealistic, Goal-Oriented, Clear-sighted, Athletic, and 
    Sexy.
    Negative: Status-seeking, Jealous, Greedy, Unrealiable, Obsessive Lover, and 
    Can't shut up.
    
    No change in stress.
    
    This information was taken from a variety of webpages about bloodtyping.  
    Mainly about Sailor Moon.  Too many pages with the same information to give
    proper credit.  I know it does hold a stronger meaning in 
    Princess Maker 3 though.  I will use this information in that FAQ as well.
    
    This is when the game starts and your daughter is given to you in the year 1209.
    In other words, you have her for an entire year before the game even begins, so
    you do have some sort of rapport with your child before you force her to start 
    attending school or working because you're a poor lazy fellow.
    
    -----------------------------------
    3) Jobs                           |
    -----------------------------------
    Okay okay, regardless of the fact you're this amazing hero guy, you have to 
    send your 10+ year old daughter out to work for the money in the household. The 
    jobs do good or bad stuff to your daughter as well.  First off, when your 
    daughter is 10 it gives you initially 6 jobs for her to work.  Unfortunately, 
    as with school, EVERYTHING accumulates stress.  More so in the work environment
    than in a schooling one.  The higher end the job, the more stressful.  It also
    all determines on how good she is at it, etc, and how much it pays.  If it's a
    really high paying job, there may be a lot of stress involved.  As most people
    also discover, she only gets paid if she does GOOD that day.  She won't get 
    paid that day if she sucks.  Another note, if she works the job a LOT, she does
    accumulate raises over a long period of time and can aquire bonuses at the end
    of the week if she does REALLY well.  It could be a raise of 1 gold to more, 
    depending on the start pay of the job initially.  If you work her at somewhere
    too often, she may even take up working there as her profession!  All the pay 
    listed here is starting pay.  You can work on getting her raises on your own.
    After working EVERY single job for her entire existance (no school, just doing
    the job twice a month and one vacation each month for her entire lifetime), I 
    was able to discover that you can get at least two to three raises in her 
    lifetime.  They're only one or two gold though.  So instead of 4G per day, you
    may work up to getting 6G per day!  Oh Joy!
    
    a) Housework - 0G per day 
       That's right kids!  You don't get paid to do housework with Cube!  However, 
    this is the only way to raise Temperament.
    
    + Temperment, Cooking, and Cleaning
    - Sensitivity
    
    b) Babysitting - 4G per day 
         Just like every 10 year old girl, you too can make your daughter babysit 
    children only 5 years younger than her o.o;;; Regardless of the irony in that, 
    this helps secretly work on maternal instinct (which isn't in the power meter )
    
    + Sensitivity
    - Charisma
    
    c) Inn - 8G per day 
      The inn helps your child learn more and more about the joys of working in the 
    housework type environment.
    
    + Cleaning
    - Combat Skill
    
    d) Farm - 10G per day 
        I wanna be a cowboy!  And you can be my cowgirl! o/~   Anywhos, the farm is
    a low level job for any young girl.. right? x.x  This is the 1200's.
    
    + Constitution and Strength
    - Refinement
    
    e) Church - 1G per day 
        Church going could never be so fun o.o;;;;   You too can teach your 
    daughter to be a Nun a long with the best of them.  This is the best place
    to work off sin, unless you have the money to donate to the Church in the 
    normal town area... which is 100 gold per every -10 sin.
    
    + Faith and Morals
    - Sin
    
    f) Restaurant - 8G per day 
        It's a job for a  housemaker type child.  If you wanna go toward that path, 
    then by all means, this is the job for your child. 
    
    + Cooking
    - Combat Skill
    
    /Those are the starting jobs.  Once your daughter hits 11, she can now work at 
    2 new places./
    
    g) Lumberjack - 12G per day 
      I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay! o/~    My friend had a daughter that couldn't
    do anything BUT be a Lumberjack.  It's not that bad of a job, and pays a decent
    amount for work.
    
    + Strength
    - Refinement 
    
    h) Salon - 20G per day 
        Yes,  your girl can be a good little girl and get really good at being a 
    hairdresser at the local salon.  It's defiantly a job for the weak and artistic 
    type.
    
    + Sensitivity
    - Strength
    
    /At her 12th birthday, she's granted with the ability to work for 2 more 
    places./
    
    i) Masonry - 18G per day 
        I just can't think of anything witty to say for this job.  You're daughter 
    is a mason! Deal!
    
    + Constitution
    - Charisma
    
    j) Hunter - 8G per day 
        I don't know about you, but I always pictured my kid wanting to carry 
    around dead animals for her 12th birthday o.o;;
    
    + Constitution, Sin, and Combat Skill
    - Refinement
    
    /Once she hits 13, she only is given 1 new job to go to./
    
    k) Graveyard - 8G per day 
        She's working in a graveyard... you just can't comprehend the joy.
    
    + Magical Defense and Sensitivity
    - Charisma
    
    /On her 14th Birthday, she's given 2 more choices of employment./
    
    l) Tutor - 20G per day 
        Okay, I can understand Tutoring young kids at the age of 14.  It 
    especially helps if she has a decent intelligence, and some morals.
    
    + Morals
    - Charisma
    
    m) Bar - 12G per day 
        Woo... working at a bar when she's 14 ... just... wow.  One of the main
    and probably only reasons for her to be working at the Bar at all would be 
    is that it pays all right, PLUS it's the only way for her to gain 
    Conversation skills. 
    
    + Cooking and Conversation
    - Intelligence
    
    /On her 15th birthday, you can almost start corrupting her o.o;; This is when
    you're given one new job./
    
    n) Sleazy Bar - 45G per day 
         Yes,  if you wanted to create that S & M Queen for a daughter? Here's 
    your chance.  This is a highly stressful job that... scares me just the 
    slightest.  Even though the payment seems like a good idea at the time when 
    you're desperate for cash, is corrupting her really that important?  Besides,  
    she's only 15 ;_; 
    
    + Charisma and Sin
    -  Morals, Faith, and Temperament
    
    /And finally on her 16th birthday, she is gifted with one final job she can 
    work./
    
    o) Cabaret - 35G per day 
          One, singular sensation every little step she makes... o/~  Okay, not 
    quite.  This job is almost as bad as the Sleazy Bar.  I've heard ( But have 
    not done myself ) that if you work her at the Cabaret often, she will move 
    up from being a waitress type to one of the dancers. 
    
    + Charisma and Sin
    - Intelligence, Temperament, and Refinement
    
    -----------------------------------
    4) School                         |
    -----------------------------------
    
    Schooltime!  Ah yes the fun fun joys of doing homework and all sorts of 
    stuff o.o;; 
    
            That's the point of playing this game, right?  Make your child be 
    the best at what she is!  School is a nice enviroment to learn, hone skills, 
    and do all that cool stuff.  Here are the many subjects and what they do 
    for your daughter.  The names here are used in the english beta version.  
    Basically the prices that are charged to you are by how experienced in the 
    subject your child becomes.  After so many classes, your child will be 
    moved up a level.  Whether or not you need that extra level really isn't 
    nessassary.   For example, once you've maxed out your magic abilities, there's 
    no way to max them out any more.  It doesn't matter if she's at Adept or even 
    at Master, there's no possible way to make them go any higher.  However, with 
    the higher levels, you can increase certain stats faster.  The only reason
    to keep going with certain things (Such as Magic or Fighting) is to get the
    special items available to those dedicated to those arts.  With Magic you
    get a Power ring that gives up unlimited MP or the special sword from Valkria.
    
    a) Science 
           Taught by Barcleo the Alchemist, Science is an important subject in even 
    every day school. 
    
    Novice: 30G, Adept: 40G, Expert: 50G and Master: 60G    
    These prices are per day/per class 
    
    + Intelligence
    - Magical Defence and Faith
    
    b) Strategy 
        Taught by General Kreger, it's supposed to teach you how to be a good 
    Military man ( or woman ) 
    
    Novice: 50G, Adept: 70G, Expert: 90G and Master: 110G 
    
    + Intelligence and Combat Skill
    - Sensitivity
    
    c) Theology 
            Taught by Sister Lee of the church, this class is actually a rather 
    benificial course depending on where your child should be going. 
    
    Novice: 40G, Adept: 60G, Expert: 80G and Master: 90G 
    
    + Faith, Intelligence, and Magical Defense.
    - Nothing.  This is a very nice course.
    
    d) Poetry 
         This course is taught by Comstock.  This is a very enlightening course 
    that could actually shape your daughters' fate.  Unlike 20 courses of fighting, 
    or any of that sort.  If you take one class of Poetry, and your daughter is 
    decently intelligent, she will become a writer x.x  Maybe there are ways 
    around that, but most of my children generally end up being writers and artists 
    because I had them take poetry once or twice.
     
    Novice: 40G, Adept: 60G, Expert: 80G and Master: 100G 
    
    + Sensitivity, Refinement, Intelligence, and Art
    - Yet another course that doesn't take anything from her.
    
    e) Fighting 
            Ah,the joys of fighting.  Taught by Carl Fox, this is a course to teach 
    your child to defend herself, and definantly be an all around better fighter.  
    Combat Skill is easy to get, but Combat Defense takes lots of courses and hard 
    work.  Maybe if you're lucky, Valkira the War God will visit your daughter and 
    make the journey a little easier. I do believe this course also secretly works 
    on strength. 
    
    Novice: 30G, Adept: 40G, Expert: 50G and Master: 60G 
    
    + Combat Skill and Combat Defense.
    - Nothing
    
    f) Fencing 
          Taught by the skilled swordfighter, Leftor, this class helps you hone your 
    skills of fighting.  Occassionally  you'll even get the occasional Dojo Destroyer 
    ( No joke ).  If you lose against the Dojo Destroyer, class will be cancelled for 
    a few weeks. 
    
    Novice: 40G, Adept: 70G, Expert: 130 and Master: 190 - Small note.  All your 
    skills are filled about the time you hit Adept.  If you keep going back to this
    guy, he'll just say "I'm raising you a level because I just want to charge you 
    more."  Wow, if that wasn't the truth or what... 
    
    + Combat Skill and Combat Attack.
    - Nothing
    
    g) Magic 
         The A-B-C's of magic, as Cube says.  This course is very steady in the field
    of magic, unfortunately you can only go up to 100-110 points for both skills, 
    then you have to find secrets in the game to do more.  Check out the secrets 
    section.
    
    Novice: 60G, Adept: 70G, Expert: 80G and Master 90G
    
    + Magical Skill and Magical Attack
    - Nada, again.
    
    h) Protocal 
          The skill of protocal is very important if you want to meet people in high 
    society.  One of the only ways to raise Decorum. 
    
    Novice: 40G, Adept: 50G, Expert: 60G and Master: 70G 
    
    + Decorum and Refinement
    - Nothing
    
    i) Painting 
          Hoping your daughter could win the art contest?  It's one of the easiest to
    do if you work at it a little.  Her art needs to be at least 90, and have semi 
    decent sensitivity.  The best painting to do is "The Advent of the Angels" and 
    every painting that is done will be hung behind your daughter in her room. The 
    course is taught by Filkins, who also participates in the Art contest.  Every 
    painting you do costs 100G.
    
    Novice: 40G, Adept: 50G, Expert: 60G and Master: 80G 
    
    + Art and Sensitivity
    - Nope, nothing at all.
    j) Dance 
         Dance like you wanna win!  Yeah!  Okay, the course of dance is taught by 
    Tobi, who ALSO participates in the October festival.  This course secretly works 
    on strength, even though that's not listed under the power meter thingy. 
    
    Novice: 50G, Adept: 70G, Expert: 90G and Master 110G 
    
    + Art, Charisma, and Constitution
    - Nada again.
    
    -----------------------------------
    5) Adventure                      |
    -----------------------------------
    
    a) Eastern Forest
    
    In the forest area there are several hidden features about it, since it seems 
    to bethe most magical of the 4 areas to adventure in.  First you'll notice this 
    structure in the furthest east on the map.  You can sleep there at any time, 
    and if your daughter is sensitive enough, fairies will appear and grant your 
    daughter an abundant amount of cooking skill, plus her stress will go down to 0. 
    
    Above that structure, to the immediate left is a pit.  If you go down this pit, 
    you will come across this area that is enclosed with a tree and a gold chest.  
    Your daughter has to be very charismatic and extremely sensitive ( at least near
    or over 200 points worth ).  If your daughter isn't very sensitive, she'll 
    comment on how it's the great Oak tree of the Elves.   If she's sensitive, an 
    Elf will be there asking if you want to trade your Combat Skill for magic points.
    If you agree, he'll give you +5 on all three skills, and take 5 points of your 
    Combat skill (and you can't get them back either, no matter HOW hard you train.)
    However, he'll run away if you're carrying Iron ( A sword or any type of metal 
    weapon or armor, with the exception of the Mithral armor and the War gods sword/
    Valkira's sword). 
    
    Near the Southeastern most part of the map (a group of trees), you can use the 
    Unicorn Horn.  The Unicorn Horn is something you would obtain through the 
    Traveling Salesman (The "Chinese Orc").   Choose to camp and then select the use 
    item option.  Use it.  She'll state that nothing happens.  Then when you sleep, 
    the next day a Unicorn will approach you and ask about the horn.  Apparently this 
    horn was part of his friend, and questions you on how you obtained it, etc.  If 
    you give it to him, he'll give you 50 points of Sensitivity, but if you do not... 
    He'll take away HALF your sensativity.  Many thanks to Alex Cheong and Linda 
    Harper for explaining the use of the Unicorn Horn in this game. 
    
    Also in that same area with the bunch of trees.  Sleep there at night ( Only when 
    it's dark outside ) and other fairies will visit you, but this time your art will 
    go up, but your constitution will go down a few points, plus stress will go to 0 
    also. 
    
    You can meet lots of creatures in the forest... one of them is the Wildcat.  When 
    you meet her, you can attack her.  One of them carries an item called the 'Catseye' 
    that is a treasure of the Wildcat tribe, and you can trade it to Ket Shi, their god 
    in 2 different adventure areas (Not in the forest, but the Glacier and the Desert).
    Another pointless note... totally off the Princess Maker 2 subject in general. In 
    Final Fantasy 7, the correct pronunciation of 'Cait Sith' is Ket Shi.  And since 
    Ket Shi is a sort of God of the Cat tribe and can use his fairy powers on you, and 
    Cait Sith  in FF7 is a fortune teller machine, it makes it kind of interesting to 
    make this sort of connection.  However, I digress...
    
    Now, last but not least you may discover this one by accident... there is this 
    enclosed area on the upper left portion of the map (no way of getting to it by 
    normal means), when you find a way in there (go around it and then down into the 
    water.  Go across the top left, still in the water, and you will fall into a pit),  
    you may encounter the first of 3 tough bandits and some items.  Those items are 
    250G and Ancient Milk (which helps with weight loss of your daughter.)  The first 
    bandit's name is Venezaro.  This isn't like the other enemies where if you don't 
    win, Cube will just carry your off... he basically molests your daughter if he 
    isn't defeated, so it's a good idea to go to him prepared.  If not, love for Cube 
    will shoot through the roof and she'll end up marrying him (Cube) O_o;;;  If you 
    choose to accept the bribe from him, he offers your daughter 80G.  Should she take 
    this, your daughters Sin will go up 50 points.  If you defeat him, you will get 
    Leather Armor and 30 gold.   Defeating this guy will raise magical or fighter 
    reputation (Depending on what you beat him with) 30 points and you'll receive a 
    prize of 500G ^_^.  Also, if you accept the bribe, you will not be able to find 
    him ever again, and you will have no other opportunity to encounter the other two 
    bandits in the game.
    
    b) Western Desert
    
    The Desert area is probably the most ethically dangerous area out of the four.  
    That is because there is a devil living out in the middle of it o.o;;;  You'll 
    come across a cave with a sign called 'Demons Abode' (You have to go all the way 
    through the Dragon Ruins, down, and then right to the entrance of a cave).  If your 
    daughter chooses to camp there, your daughter will wake up facing a demon party, 
    and the Prince of Darkness (Lucifon... yeah, I think it may have been a typo in my 
    version o.o) offers your child the chance to raise one of her skills (Constitution, 
    Strength, Intelligence, Refinement, Charisma, or Refuse) If you refuse nothing 
    happens to her, but if you don't refuse, she'll gain more of the aforementioned 
    skill of choice, but her sin goes way up, and her faith goes down. 
    
    Something else interesting about this area, is that you can trade in the Demon 
    Pendant that you would buy from the wandering salesman.  This is what can happen.  
    At the mouth of the cave to Hell, you wander in.  Normally if you don't have the 
    Demon Pendent, he'll tell you to get lost and you'll be pushed out of the cave.  
    However... should you have the item on you, he'll ask you if you want to trade it 
    for the Circe's Charm.  If you say no, he'll ask to buy it for 1000.  Again, if you 
    say no, he'll then up the price to 1500.  If you say no the final time, he'll 
    attack you.  I'm pretty sure if you lose, he'll take the item from your inventory.
    If you say yes to his original offer... you get The Circe's Charm, which is... 
    Magical Attack upped 10 points, Refinement upped 100, Charisma upped 100, but your 
    Morals are taken down to 0 points.
    
    Another area is the far upper left desert (NorthWest area).  You'll find an oasis 
    there sitting in the middle of nowhere.  Now if you aren't carrying the Spirit 
    Ring, she'll glance at the lake and gain more sensitivity.  If you do have it 
    though, a spirit will pop out of the water and ask your daughter for the ring.  
    If you say yes, she'll thank you and your refinement goes up 50 points.  About a 
    year later, her daughter will show up to your doorstep, thanking your daughter, 
    and her sensitivity will go up 100 points, PLUS she'll leave 2000 gold for you.  
    Now if you think about that you only paid 1000 for it in the first place, this 
    definantly is a good deal.  If you say NO however... the spirit will curse you 
    for being a wreched human, and you will lose half your sensativity.  For example, 
    say you have 999 Sensativity, you'll lose 499 of it.  Or even if you have 100, 
    you'll lose 50, etc.  It's all just a simple mathmatical equation.  Not giving her 
    the ring isn't really a good option.  Unlike most give or take situations, just 
    give her the ring for crying out loud.  From that point on, the oasis will dry up 
    and be gone forever!  Have that on your conscious for the rest of your life!
    
    As I mentioned before about the Wildcat tribe and Ket Shi, the first area to 
    actually encounter him is here.  You will find him at this empty house in the 
    middle-Far West part of the map, next to a graveyard.  He doesn't appear unless 
    you have the Catseye though.  He'll ask you to exchange it for one of 4 things, 
    Increase Height, Lower Height, Lower Weight or no deal.  This works out for people 
    with daughters who complain they want to be a little taller.  Other than saying 
    "That's nice dear, what am I supposed to do about it?"  you can actually do 
    something about it now ^_^  The place is called the 'House of the dead'  I 
    believe.  You can do this several times.  He does remember you if you encounter 
    him again with another catseye. 
    
    You'll also come across the Dragon Ruins right smack dab at the center of the 
    desert (the funny structure in the middle).  Your daughter will have to travel 
    through them to get to the other parts of the desert.  On the way to get to the 
    center you'll encounter a Dragon demanding you pay a toll.  Normally you can pay 
    this, and everything is fine.  If you pay it at least once, it can get you in 
    store for better endings later.  You will also find something called a Dragons 
    Fang that raises your Fighters Reputation, and you can sell it for a nice amount 
    of money if you're desperate.  In the center is an old dragon.  If she's too 
    young, he'll tell you to get lost because it's no area for kids.  If she returns 
    later however, he'll give you the Dragon Tights and comment on your daughters' 
    figure.  If you defeat the Dragon Guard the second time around, depending on how 
    old you are.... you may get a young dragon at your doorstep a few months later 
    proposing marriage!  The older dragon will try to sway you for your daughters hand 
    with 10,000 gold.  Which if you're in the red for money, this will make her live 
    easier for the rest of her days, however... well, she'll marry the Dragon Youth.
    If you disagree, her refinement goes up.  If you agree, you get the money but I 
    think her morals go down.  She will end up marrying him regardless of what career 
    UNLESS she already has preset one of the other special endings, like Marrying Cube,
    the Father ( That's right, she can marry YOU! ) and of course, the Prince.
    
    c) Southern Lake
    
    The lake area is a bit harder than the other two areas, because the creatures here
    aren't as friendly and will attack sometimes regardless of how sensitive your 
    daughter is.  There are similar secrets here as there are in the forest, being 
    that it's a magical place.  The artistic dancing like fairies that give Art but 
    take Constitution are along one of the first islands that is between rocks after 
    the first waterfall.  Just camp there at night and bam, there you go.  The cooking 
    fairies are a bit further away.  Completely south on the map, then east.  There
    will be this island with nothing to it, you have to find a pathway through the 
    water, and there is a giant red flower thing on the island  It's difficult, 
    because of the invisible pathway through the water.  Get the treasure chest 
    (Fairy Nectar) and sleep there, you'll get the ones that increase cooking skill 
    and kill stress. 
    
    The second criminal is there as well, Bloodrose Vanesta.  He's a bit tougher 
    than Venezaro.  Just make sure you win.  Remeber that the criminals also don't 
    just APPEAR when you enter the area, you may have to wander around for a day or 
    so.  He tries to bribe your daughter with 200 G (Which will make her sin go up 
    50 points).  Defeating him will gain you Chain Mail armor and 286 G.  When you 
    get back to town you get 30 of Fighters or Magical Reputation and 1500G. 
     
    One of the final minor secrets along the river is somewhat like the forest again, 
    you'll encounter an enemy called the Fishman.  If you defeat him, one will be 
    carrying a Mermaids Tear.  When you go on a paid vacation at the beach, you will 
    meet a Mermaid and she'll offer you a prayer.  Sensitivity goes up.
    
    d) Northern Glacier
    
    Other than the amount of cool items you can find here, there aren't 
    that many secrets at all.  There's another hut for Ket Shi ( That would 
    be the igloo at the far left, south map section ). 
    
    There is one last Bandit/boss type character here, his name is Hurricane 
    Calisto and is tougher than the other two combined!  Woo, better be wearing 
    armor against this guy. He's in the empty house (Far SouthWestern part of the 
    map).  Normally it would say 'No one is here...', so just keep trying to go 
    into it over and over again until he appears.  He will try to bribe you with 
    500G.  Once defeated you gain Mithral Armor + 386 gold.  Back in the city you 
    gain 30 Fighters or Magical Reputation and 5500 G.  Now, take note here - if 
    you take on several adventures in a row and take down ALL the bandits in one 
    month period, you will still gain the total of 5500G, but you will ONLY gain 
    30 reputation for the three.  My suggestion would be to take them down in 
    individual months, that way you get the full amount of reputation available 
    for you.
    
    There is also a row of stairs that go up and up and up on the NorthWest part of
    the map.  They go to the war god.  Yes, you can fight and defeat the war god if
    your child is awesome enough o.o;  Then she will meet her god/protector.  They
    will give you a skill in which they are most suited for (Example, Venus is god
    of love, she gives the daughter 100 points of Charisma.  It is different for 
    every god, and it may be more then just the one shot of 100, they could give 
    100 in two skills, or so.)  It's rather neat to see that, and you get The God
    Sword if you do ^_^

    -----------------------------------
    8) People and Rivals              |
    -----------------------------------
    a) People from the Castle
    Although it seems hard at first, your daughters success in high society all 
    depend on how she effects the nice people at the castle.  The first few times 
    through, these people will be *annoying*.  It's best to know what exactly 
    they're looking for to finish them off ( Which would be a popularity score of 
    999 ).  Here is who they are, and what they want. 
    
    Palace Guard - He talks to you anytime you even step foot near the castle.  
    He looks for refinement and decorum.  Your score will go up higher once you 
    get better in those two fields.  He tells you to talk to someone else once 
    you hit the popularity of 40.
    
    Royal Guard - He is a bit tougher than the palace guard, and looks for those
    same qualities of Decorum and Refinement.  He tells you to talk to someone 
    else once you hit a 90 in popularity. So you have to talk to him till you get
    over 50 in popularity. 
    
    General Kruger - He looks for the Refinement coupled with Decorum, plus he 
    also has a soft spot for children with Sensitivity.  He is also the teacher 
    of the Strategy class.  If you go in the order of Palace Guard, Royal Guard, 
    then him.  You can end at 190, or pretty much 100 popularity points.
    
    Minister of State - He is a little more strict on what is needed.  His 
    requirements are at least Decorum to be pretty high, Refinement, and he really
    really likes intelligent people. Every 10 points of intelligence will give you 
    another point of popularity.  So for example if you're at 130 of Intelligence, 
    he'll give you 13 of popularity, and so forth.  If you have over 600 in 
    intelligence, it won't get you more than 60 when you talk with him past that 
    point.  He is also the judge of the Dance Contest when the Harvest festival 
    rolls around.  Generally it takes him 120 points of popularity to pass him, and 
    if you go in the same order that would be 310 to end on. 
    
    Archbishop - He is a very spiritual man (Well, duh) who primarily looks for 
    faith in all.  Same as the Minister of State, every point of faith in increments 
    of 10 gets you a point of popularity.  He is the main guy for the Art Festival 
    come Harvest Festival time.  The Archbishop needs 120 as well, and that would be 
    430 if you're going in the correct order. 
    
    Royal Concubine - Although she is after the Archbishop, it's best to perhaps 
    leave her for last, considering the only skill she looks for is Conversation.  
    Same deal as above, every 10, etc.  So if your kid has a Conversation of 1... 
    you might wait until you can start conversing with her before trying to pass 
    her.  So far there is only one job that helps you get the skill of Conversation, 
    and that job is the Bar, which you can only start working at by age 14. So once 
    you get along to there, it takes about 120 before you get past her, or if you 
    actually wait until after the King,  it'd be 119. 
    
    Queen - She is rather difficult to get past, since there are only two 
    requirements.  One is Decorum needs to be near maxed out, and she only really 
    looks for Temperament.  Temperament can only be gained through Housework.  It 
    also takes a great number of times visiting her before finally moving onto the 
    King.  The Queen takes about 160 points to get past, but at 10 points each time, 
    it's a really difficult and LONG process.  If you go in the order requested 
    above, she ends at 590 of popularity. 
    
    King - Although the Concubine and Queen have to be the most difficult, I tend 
    to think the King is rather easy going.   He's a fighter loving man.  So any 
    Combat Skill, Combat Attack, and Combat Defense you have will add up when 
    visiting him, PLUS any Fighters Reputation you've accumulated. You can pass 
    him really quickly if your kid is the hero type, just like her Dad ^_^ 
    Although the amount of points needed seems extreme <290 to pass him> it 
    doesn't seem so much if you're a fighter type.  Unlike the Queen and Concubine,
    you can rank up to 50 points of popularity each visit considering how skilled 
    you are at fighting and such.  If you go in the order that's correct, he usually 
    tells you to talk to others at 880 points. 
    
    Jester - Although he is on the list to talk to, he doesn't help your Social 
    Reputation at all.  If you choose to talk to him, your Sensitivity goes up 15 
    points, but the Social Rep goes down 15... is it an even trade?  Not sure.  
    He will tell your daughter to speak to him with a better tongue - this is 
    because your daughter has a low conversation level.  You need at least 40+
    in conversation before chatting with this fellow.  If you decide to talk
    to him enough, he will become your daughters best friend.  Eventually
    the Jester will decide to visit your daughter and give hints about
    certain other aspects of the game - not to mention on one of these
    visits he'll give your daughter this fancy little item.  Although it
    isn't a general rule, if your daughter continues to speak to him after
    he has given the harp, she will take over his job as the Jester when
    he leaves the kingdom.
    
    Young Officer - Claiming to be a Young Officer guarding the palace only during 
    the month of January each year, this guy has a lot of secrets.  You really don't 
    need *anything* to actually talk to this guy, however you'll discover ( if you're 
    lucky ) that he's really the young prince of the realm, in disguise.  Originally 
    it was debated that to marry the prince, you'd have to be a housewife.  This 
    isn't true.  In fact, I've had a dancer and a hero both marry him... it's all 
    a matter of how socially well you are accepted, how popular, and of course if 
    you visit him each month ( Give or take the accidental missing of one ).   Is 
    it worth the effort?  Well, the game is called Princess Maker.  You be the 
    judge ^_^ Though, we've discovered that you can't be a KICK ass hero and marry 
    him.  You'll only be a semi-decent Hero ( Because at some point you'll be married 
    to him and can't go wandering outside of the castle, duh o.o; )  However the case 
    may be, you really have to want to do it badly to get it. ^_^ 
    
    (This is debatable.  I've been told many times through email that they've created 
    an awesome daughter and had her marry the Prince.  It's just in my opinion that 
    the Ultimate Hero statement is when the Daughter becomes the wandering Hero, and
    you get commended on how awesome a father you are, plus the god says she was very 
    good at her work.  This, technically is an ending score of over 1000.  I haven't
    the time or energy to search and find out exactly what is the BEST ending.)
    
    b) Your rivals
    
    During the game, your daughter, depending on her skills and such will gain a 
    rival by the age of 14.  Normally right after her birthdate.  Here are those four 
    rivals now, in no particular order. 
    
    Anita Cassandra - She is the rival for the fighters.  Although having a fighter 
    type daughter is fun, she's also a hard one to beat.  Both fighting styled rivals 
    ( Her and Wendy )  DO get better and become harder to defeat each Harvest Festival.
    She works part time at the Armor and Weapon shop. 
    
    Wendy Lachesis - She's a 'Magician Girl' who from what I can tell is the most 
    polite rival of the 4.  She'll go after you if you have a high magical reputation.
    She'll also want you to do the Combat Tournament for the Harvest Festival each 
    October.  She works part time at the Pawn shop.  She's just a little too cheerful 
    for my tastes. 
    
    Marthia Shareweare - That's right,  according to a Takami Akai artbook and the 
    Princess Maker Puzzle game, her name is SHAREWEARE.  Though, originally the last 
    name wasn't really mentioned in this game.  She's the rival for girls with high 
    houseworker reputation and cooking skills.  If you work your daughter at  home a 
    lot, and she wins at the cooking contest often, you're going to get this girl as 
    your rival.  She says she's slow, and that she isn't good at anything but 
    cooking... then why is it if you dance a lot you see her as one of the 
    competitors? She works part time at the Restaurant.
    
    Patricia Hearn - Her main 'thing' is to be the best at Dancing and the most 
    popular girl.  She laughs a lot, which reminds me of Kodachi from Ranma 1/2 
    fame... or even Aeka from Tenchi Muyo o.o;;.  Still, scary girl none-the-less. 
    I don't think she's worked a day in her life.  Occasionally you do see her in 
    the Art class if you take that one.  If you are somewhat decently good at dancing 
    and have passed the Ministery of State at the castle (In regards to social 
    reputation), you will always beat her.  In fact, when you go to dance, the guy 
    will say "Oh, it's _name_, I'll do everything to make sure she wins!".  Wahahaha, 
    take that Patricia!

    9) Going around town              |
    -----------------------------------
    Shops available are ---
    Armorer - Owned by Armorer Zen!
    Items sold there are listed in the item section, above.
    
    Tailor - Owned by Maura.
    Items sold there are listed in the item section, above.
    
    Restaurant - Owned by Chef Balbon.
    Items sold there are listed in the item section, above.
    
    Pawn Shop - Owned by Shalom.
    Items sold there are listed in the item section, above.
    This is also the only place you can purchase your daughters Birthday gift from.
    
    Church - Ran by Sister Lee.
    You are given a choice to donate 100G or leave.  If you donate, you knock 
    off 10 points of Sin.  Might as well just have her work at the church for 
    free.
    
    Hospital - Ran by Dr. Lombardini.
    You can only visit the hospital if your daughter is sick.  The only way your
    daughter can become sick is when your you send her to school or work her
    too much (In other words, no vacation and your daughter has become 
    bedridden).  Please remember to give your daughter at least a vacation 
    a month/cycle.  It ensures you a happy daughter.

    10) Secrets                       |
    -----------------------------------
    This is going to go in depth about secrets, events, and such that you may want to 
    wait to look at when you play the game.  Otherwise, you can read on and find out 
    all sorts of interesting things about the game that you may or may not have known. 
    This is not a complete list of secrets, by all means, I still haven't found 
    EVERYTHING about the game ( I actually wish I knew one or two more things because 
    of the sheer frustration of knowing it's there and I have no idea how to get to 
    it ^_^) 
    
    Opening screen:  When you begin to type in your daughters  name, just press a 
    bunch of keys at once, till it's all filled up.  Suddenly it'll zip past everything 
    and now you have a daughter named Olive Oyl, who is born on April 2nd and is very 
    keen at fighting, and lousy at magic.  Her stress is always at +2, though.  Your 
    daughter never fully smiles. This works for the PC versions of the game.  Olive 
    Oyl is the default/official name of your daughter.  I've also been able to pull 
    this trick for the Original Japanese version of Princess Maker 1. 
    
    Magical training: When finally maxed out in magic, you will get to a point where
    you can go no further.  There are two solutions to this ordeal.  Have your 
    daughter do 3 magic's in a row, without a vacation.  Fay will show up and 
    announce herself in a very ... enthusiastic tone, and grant you the power to to 
    raise one of your three skills (Magical skill, Magical Attack, Magical Defense).
    Your daughter will get +20 points whatever you choose.  You can do this 2 times, 
    then she doesn't show up again if you pull that stunt again.
    
    Okay okay, now you're thinking "I've been through the game SEVERAL times and my
    daughter can never be the best daughter because she sucks in everything!"  
    Mainly that is because of money, right?  Well, I've got cheats for that too :) 
    
    All stuff cheat:   Go into your Princess Maker directory on your computer, and 
    open up the pm2.cnf file with a simple editor like notepad, or even word.  When 
    in there,  on the line after the last item (There will be about 3 or so )  type 
    on a separate line by itself 
    
    MOPI = 1 
    
    Then when you go into the town area, holding f10 now you have Mad Eddy's, and 
    the Beta Shop.  Beta Shop let's you test endings, to see what skilles are 
    needed to achieve them.  At Mad Eddy's you can get oodles of money, and hard to
    earn items for a special price ^_^  Also, I've heard that if you don't want to 
    edit the file, you can get the same effect by holding down F12 R and N and Q at 
    the same time.  Then it'll give you that option for that game. It won't be a 
    perminant thing that you'll see every time you play, unlike the MOPI = 1 edit. 
    If anyone has an gameshark codes for the Saturn Version, let me know!  It's 
    a lot easier to play if you have all the money in the world.  Note, I've heard
    the F10 trick doesn't work upon occasions either.  It's a matter of timing.
    You can just edit that pm2.cnf file instead.  It's the easiest way.
    
    In the PC version, you can hold down F3 to speed up the gameplay.  It'll just
    ZOOM by really fast.  If you are playing the Saturn version, you just hold 
    down start during jobs, schooling and vacations to zoom by.  You can also
    skip the opening by pressing start as well.

    This section is just a little view on the extra stuff included on the 
    disks for the Princess Maker 2 various versions.  
    
    Princess Maker 2 for Windows 95: Although the disk and packaging really 
    don't allow for much fun here, all the voices in the game and music is 
    listed on the disk for you to be able to play from the disk without
    actually playing the game.  Woo hoo.
    
    Princess Maker 2 for Sega Saturn: This one has a very funny little thing.
    If you put in the cd in a standard CDplayer, it will read off an audio 
    track.  This is like... an entire audio track of your daughter Olive
    rambling on about how hard her father workers her, etc.  Fun drama for
    all!
    
    Princess Maker 2 for the Princess Maker Collection/Dreamcast:  Not much
    for this disk.  From the starting page, you can click on the image 
    gallery and it will have various PM related artwork.

    12) The other games               |
    -----------------------------------
    
    I actually will do FAQS for these as well, but it will be a long and gradual 
    process.  The only reason this one was so easy, was mainly because I already 
    hadmost of this information catalogued somewhere.  Here is a list of the 
    currently available Princess Maker Games.
    
    Princess Maker -  This game came out in 1991.  Your daughters default name is 
    Maria Rindobagu.  The plot is that there was a huge war with the demons of the 
    underworld, and the child is an orphan of that war.  You decide to raise her
    to be your own daughter.  
    Versions Available: IBM/PC Japanese, Chinese, and 
    I've *heard* of a Saturn Version by Microcabin, but I have not found it 
    myself so I cannot confirm that version.  
    
    Princess Maker 2 - This is the FAQ you are looking at.  Made available 
    around 1994/1995.  The second game in the Princess Maker series.  This time 
    your daughter is named Olive Oyl.  The plot is similar to the first one, 
    except this time you have a God giving you the daughter to raise from ages 
    10-18.  Versions Available: IBM/PC Japanese, Chinese, and an English Beta 
    version.  This one was actually released for the Japanese Sega Saturn by 
    Microcabin, the disc featured different images, complete voice acting for all
    the characters, plus a bonus 'Drama' track which had Olive whining for a good 
    6 minutes about why her father works her so much. 
    
    Princess Maker: Legend of Another World -  This game was released around
    the same time as Princess Maker 2.  It was only released for the Super
    Famicom system.  It plays almost exactly like Princess Maker 2.  The 
    only major difference would be the combat system is really weird.  I do 
    not know the default name for the daughter.  It really is not thought
    of as part of the series of games, since it is a stand alone product.  I
    imagine it was just Gainax trying to make the Princess Maker series 
    available on many platforms.  Maybe someday I should ask them.
    Version: Super Famicom (Japanese Super Nintendo).  There is a FAQ
    currently available for this game.
    
    Princess Maker 3: Faery Tales Come True - Technically the 3rd game.
    The japanese title is "Yume Miru Yousei", but also is listed as Faery 
    Tales Come True (Spelled 'faery').  This  is the most current child 
    simulation game.  This game was a collaberation of Gainax, and the 
    japanese game Company of "Nine Lives".  This is a much more involved game, 
    featuring options such as a choice of the fathers profession, and your 
    daughters disposition is much more drastic.   Your daughters default name 
    is "Lisa Anderson".
    Versions Available: Originally released for Japanese Playstation.  There is an 
    odd rap with repeatative words as a 'Bonus' track.  The PSX version was missing
    a few features that were included in the PC and Saturn versions.
    It was then released for IBM/PC and Mac:  Japanese, Chinese and Korean versions. 
    There is also a Japanese Sega Saturn version available.  This includes the same
    sort of bonus along PM2's Saturn Game.  It has a drama track.  Lisa is a 
    much happier child than Olive.  There is a FAQ currently available for this
    game.
    
    Princess Maker Pocket Daisakusen - Loosely translated as "Big Strategy", or 
    I've heard it translated as Mission in a little pocket (??).  This game was
    an attempt at a puzzle game.  This game was produced by Nine Lives, it gives
    you the option of playing either Maria, Lisa, or Olive in an effort to play 
    through scenerios to become a Princess through the art of the puzzle game.
    It has a very pretty opening theme, and a plethora of voice acting.  
    Versions: Only available for Japanese Playstation
    
    Princess Maker: Go! Go! Princess -  You know, I'm not even sure what this is.
    It looks like an RPG of sorts, featuring all FOUR daughters (Yes, that includes
    the previously forgotten Legend of Another World girl).  I've only seen
    screenshots, but I'm picking up a copy soon!  Wish me luck.  Also produced by
    those wonderful people at Nine Lives.  I've also got sort of a "Mario Party"
    feel to the game, but I have no idea since I don't own it.
    Versions: Only available for Japanese Playstation
    
    Princess Maker Q -  Another Princess Maker game produced by Nine Lives, this
    appears to be a quiz game asking questions about the other PM games!  There 
    isn't much else that I know of it, but I'm working on gathering a working 
    version.
    Versions: IBM/PC and Mac.  Japanese and Chinese versions.
    
    Princess Maker 4 - Originally it may have been slated for the Sega
    Dreamcast, but now Princess Maker 4 is heading to PCs and Macintoshs
    very shortly.  From what I understand, your daughter is "Karen" who was
    the host of Princess Maker Q.  It looks like a mixture of modern day
    Tokyo with a Princess Maker setting.  Must play this before I can
    completely judge. ^_^;
    Verions: As far as we know, Windows 95 (Japanese only).
    
    Princess Maker Collection -  Princess Maker 2 and 3 put on the Sega Dreamcast
    and bundled as a "Collection".  Distributed by a company called GeneX.  This
    is currently available.  It states to be "Powered by Windows CE" on the box.
    Versions: Sega Dreamcast only.
