    INTRODUCTION
    ..........................
    
    
    If you're like me, you have a difficult time remembering which stores carry 
    the items you want in Star Ocean 2. Star Ocean is no different. In fact, I 
    find it even more difficult because it's in Japanese, a language I don't 
    know, and I imagine most people playing Star Ocean also don't know Japanese. 
    I wrote this FAQ to aid myself in Item Creation, and I hope it can help you 
    as well.
    
    First, a brief explanation. In Star Ocean, shops can be recognized (usually) 
    by a sign next to the building's door. One type of shop is labeled with a 
    sign showing three round objects. They could be bubbles, berries, whatever. 
    Your guess is a good as mine. ^_~ Since these shops generally carry items 
    that heal, I call them "Potion Shops". Another type of shop is labeled with 
    something that looks like a pot, a bottle, something like that. Since these 
    shops generally carry items such as raw materials for Item Creation and 
    offensive items for battle, I call them "Tool Shops". The shops that sell 
    weapons and armor I call "Armories". These are labeled with a sword. "Skill 
    Shops" sell skills (duh). These are labeled with a magnifying lens. There are 
    exceptions to these, so my advice is to talk to every person in a town. You 
    should be able to find the store you want easily enough. 
    
    In addition to the items I have listed prices. But as far as I can tell, 
    prices are constant in the game. No matter what shop you're in, a Blackberry 
    is going to cost the same amount.
    
    By the way, I threw in Skill shops just for the heck of it. You really don't 
    need that information. Star Ocean doesn't allow you to buy a set of skills 
    more than once, so each time you reach a new Skill shop, try buying them all. 
    You'll get the ones you need, and you don't have to worry about wasting money 
    on the ones you already have.

    NOTE ABOUT DULUS: I'm not going to spoil the plot, but I will say that you 
    can only buy items in Dulus for a short period of time in the game. Once I 
    play through Star Ocean again, I will add the Dulus items. This town just has 
    basic items, though.

    CONTACTING ME
    ..........................
    
    
    Since I don't know Japanese, some of my translations could possibly be 
    incorrect, but with the aid of Katakana and Hiragana charts, Ian Kelley's 
    walkthrough and FAQs, the Star Ocean: The Second Story Strategy Guide, my 
    friends who know Japanese, and other resources, I think I got almost 
    everything right. After reading through this, though, I'm sure you'll 
    discover the translations I'm unsure of. If you can help me with these, I'd 
    REALLY appreciate it.
    
    If there's any information you think is missing or info that you'd like to 
    see added, email about that. I will NOT include info relating to the ROM, nor 
    will I change my FAQ to match any translation patches out there. I did the 
    work of translating all this stuff myself before the ROM was even playable.
    
    If you'd just like some help with something in Star Ocean, I would be happy 
    to help, but I will not and cannot (as I've never played it and have no 
    desire to) provide information on where to find the ROM or how to get it to 
    work, nor will I answer questions regarding translations patches. I love 
    chatting about tri-Ace and the Star Ocean games, though. ^_^ My email address 
    is: triacesuperfan@hotmail.com

    Tri-Ace for making one of my favorites games. You guys rule. ^_^
    
    Enix for publishing this game.
    
    Ian Kelley. Without your walkthrough, I would have never been able to play 
    this game. The same goes for many SO fans. Your walkthrough and FAQs also 
    helped me with the names of a few items. Your Hiragana and Katakana charts 
    have been useful in MANY ways.
    
    PJK and Kurt. Thanks for letting me bug you about some translations. And 
    thanks to all my buddies at the Game Pond and the Castlevania Dungeon for 
    putting up with my constant ranting and raving about how Square sucks and 
    tri-Ace games are God's greatest gift to man. =P
    
    GameFAQs for just existing. What would I do at 3 in the morning without your 
    FAQs and message boards?
    
    Andreas. No real reason. Just felt like thanking you. You know why. ^_~
    
    And I thank myself, because without me, this FAQ wouldn't be possible. So... 
    till next time, peeps. Toodles.
