====================
1. Introduction
====================
Many people have loved the game Final Fantasy II/IV for many years. It was one 
of the first RPGs made for the Super Nintendo system, and was recently re-
released in its Japanese form in the game "Final Fantasy Chronicles." This 
Shop/Inn FAQ will not work with this game, but rather the American Cousin Final 
Fantasy II (2). Good luck with your game progress.

Note: If you wish to use my FAQ for any reason, or any part of it, please 
contact me at the above mentioned E-mail address. As noted at the end of my FAQ, 
this product is copyrighted, and can be only reproduced with my permission. 
Thank you for taking the time to ask before using, and may you find the FAQ 
useful.

====================
2.  News & Notes
====================

Below I will list the prices and items sold in each inn, weapon shop, item shop 
and armor shop in the Final Fantasy II world. Prices will, for each item, be the 
same in each shop you enter. The shops are listed in their location along the 
game's progress, and therefore, the more powerful weapons and armor will be 
found in the shops near the end of the list. I also wish to point out that 
prices do relay, in some form, the worth of an item/weapon/armor versus another. 
That which costs 150 GP will not be as strong as the which costs 3000 GP. This 
is true throughout the game. I hope this FAQ will help you in your game progress, 
and will aid you whenever possible.

====================
3. Inn/Shop List Key - These are a few terms I think you will need to know to 
understand my FAQ.
====================

GP - stands for "Gold Pieces". It is the money you get from selling items or 
winning a battle.
Head - This will be equipped in the "Head" position. It cannot be equipped 
anywhere else.
Body - This will be equipped in the "Body" position. It cannot be equipped 
anywhere else.
Hand - This will be equipped in the "Hand" position. It cannot be equipped 
anywhere else
Thrown - This item can only be used by Edge, using his throwing command.

Also, on a side note, you can recognize a Weapon Shop by the Sword on its sign, 
an Armory by the Shield on its sign, an Item shop by a Pot on its sign, and an 
Inn by the words "INN" being printed on its sign. A sign is always found above a 
doorway. If a sign signifying an Item Shop is not found in a town, it can almost 
always be located in the Inn. Otherwise, there is no Item Shop in the town.

K. Adamant Metal Smith - If you take the Rat Tail from the Land of the Summoned 
Monsters to the "tiny man" who collects tails (he is near Silvera - you need to 
use your hovercraft), he will give you the Adamant Ore. Travel from there to the 
Underworld, and go to a strip of land directly south of the Dwarf Castle. There, 
you will find a house. Give the owner your ore and the Legend Sword you own. He 
will temper the sword to something strong, and will, when finished, have his 
disciples reopen his store! You can buy the follow items.

******************
L. Land of Summoned Monsters - By traveling through the caves in the island in 
the underground (it is in the middle of the western "lava ocean"), you find 
yourself in the Land of Summoned Monsters. Here you will find the Inn hidden 
inside the Item Shop.

Inn: 1200 GP a night (I would suggest purchasing a cabin instead. They are 
cheaper, and you can find a save point in the house to the left of the Inn/Item 
Shop. Cabins restore full health and magic points, like an inn)

******************
N. Humingway Cave - This is a hidden store. You will find it on the South part 
of the moon. Inside you will find about 20 Humingways (they are the relatives of 
Namingway, the men who will help you change your name on the Blue Planet). 
Search on the right side, until an Item Shop screen opens instead of dialogue. 
The Humingway will be selling the following:

Item Shop:

Ether 2 - 50,000 GP

most powerful weapons and armor will be found in treasure boxes. Keep that in 
mind when playing.

6. Using what follows, you should be able to find whatever you need from an item 
shop in seconds. I hope you will use my Inn/Shop guide to your advantage, and 
take my small tips where I gave them. If you have any questions, or comments on 
my FAQ, feel free to e-mail me at my e-mail address, shown at the top of this 
FAQ. Good luck in your playing of Final Fantasy II, and thank you for reading my
