Version 1.02
 - Optional NG+ Addition
 - Minor corrections

* Spoilers are included and not spelled backwards *

NOTE: I assume people using this guide have already completed the game once.
      If you haven't, why are you reading this in the first place?


Note: Costumes has not been fully verified
Note: Important Quest avaliable on and after January has not been inserted
Note: Empress Personas are assumed to be in compendium and ready to be bought
      for rank up

Author Note: Need to get that 5th Bike Ride for Rise/Lovers


===============================================================================
   Introduction
===============================================================================
   This is included in my original walkthrough/guide, but I decided to submit
this as a seperate file for convenience sakes. There are still a few things I
would add, but overall, it's complete. As the title of the FAQ states, it's
tailored towards people who are doing NG+ and want to max Slinks. On top of
that, this schedule takes advantage of bike rides in order to get useful
"bike skills" that increases the productivity of party members. There's a
better explanation of how it was made for that section, you just have to read
those sidenotes.
   However, those bike roads are only tailored to people who use Chie, Yukiko,
and Naoto. This is by popular demand and my bias towards that none of the
guy's bike skills are worthwhile. Kanji's Atom Smasher may be worthwhile and
by theory, getting Atom Smasher is 90% possible; while still maxing all slinks.
If someone is willing to test it, I would be willing to mess a few dates and
have them test it. However, I won't be held responsible if it doesn't work and
you are required to redo end of December and January because it didn't work
out as planned.
   With that, I hope you find this useful.

|          Optional Tasks For NG+ Prep                                        |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|  This part is directly copied/paste from the original full guide. I thought |
|   this was something to note, if you're curiuos, you're on the last/true    |
|   dungeon of the game, and wanted to know what you could do regardless of   |
|   character usage preference.                                               |
|                                                                             |
|  Since there's no quests left and I was also curious how I can make NG+ even|
|   more easier, I decided to create this section. All of this is optional,   |
|   but I highly suggest the 3rd section. At least consider it. This consists |
|   of 4 Parts: Equipment, Personas, Sell, Empress' Personas                  |
|                                                                             |
|  Equipment: The following is a list of things that you might want reconsider|
|   These are probably the best things you can buy from the shop, excluding   |
|   weapons. I'm not including weapons because I think it's pointless.        |
|                                                                             |
|   Yomotsu Hirasaka: The New Dungeon;      Talk to Rise                      |
|   Magatsu Mandala:  The Previous Dungeon; Talk to Teddie                    |
|                                                                             |
|   1) Full Jin-Baori (Male Armor, 60K)                                       |
|       * Sell 10 Pyroxene Fiber                                              |
|       * Highest Defense, Male Armor from the Shop                           |
|       * Heartless Machine, Yomotsu Hirasaka 6-8F                            |
|                                                                             |
|   2) Haten Robe (Female Armor, 61.2K)                                       |
|       * Sell 10 Silver String                                               |
|       * Highest Defense, Female Armor from the Shop                         |
|       * Brilliant King, Yomotsu Hirasaka 6-8F (Prefer 7F)                   |
|                                                                             |
|   3) Sorcerer's Mark (Accessory, Restore 5 SP per turn)                     |
|       * Sell 10 Silver Fox Fur                                              |
|       * Divine Mother, Yomotsu Hirasaka, 1-2F                               |
|                                                                             |
|   4)  Ouryu Brace (Accessory, All Status +5)                                |
|       * Sell 10 Torrent Gear                                                |
|       * Slaughter Drive, Magatsu Mandala (6-7F)                             |
|                                                                             |
| NOTE: Even though I got all 4 of these, you should just pick 3 or 4, not    |
|   both. Not worth the grinding effort, IMHO.                                |
|                                                                             |

===============================================================================
   Potential Party Skill Setup
===============================================================================
   I'm not going to mince words, so I'll be honest. I've gone through a few
topics and by the end, I created a basic setup of what desireable skills each
party member should have. Once again, this is by popular demand and with some
logic. If you disagree, then by all means, create your own an ignore this. The
reason I even have this here is because you should be thinking about this
before you even start using this guide. That is because, we don't really have
that many free days to do bike rides in order to get and re-arrange what
skills we want. With that in mind, you should know what you want and get that
setup on your first go; without wasting a day to get that.
   This is just so that you can see how others, and I have picked. We have
are own logic of why this is the best. Oh, before I forget, I have a bias and
that is Chie's Bufudyne. Her stats for Magic is not great, but it beats having
Bufula. I guess one can trade it for Naoto's Angelic Grace, but the setup I
desire for Naoto doesn't allow any more skills to be included. This is what I,
and the rest of the board has come up with. Feel free to copy and paste this
whenever the subject is brought up:

* Yosuke
1 Garudyne
2 Magarudyne
3 Brave Blade
4 Youthful Wind
5 Dekaja
6 Wind Boost/Wind Break
7 Wind Amp
8 Evade Elec
----------------
* Chie
1 God's Hand
2 Agneyastra
3 Power Charge
4 Dragon Hustle
5 Bufudyne
6 Apt Pupil
7 Revolution/High Counter/Ice Boost
8 Evade Fire
----------------
* Yukiko *
1 Agidyne
2 Burning Petals
3 Mind Charge
4 Salvation
5 Fire Break/Samecarn
6 Fire Boost
7 Fire Amp
8 Evade Ice
----------------
* Kanji *
1 Primal Force
2 Power Charge
3 Ziodyne
4 Maziodyne
5 Elec Boost/The Man's Way/Atom Smasher
6 Elec Amp
7 Matarukaja
8 Evade Wind
----------------
* Teddie *
1 Bufudyne
2 Mabufudyne
3 Mediaharan
4 Amrita/Matarukaja
5 Marakukaja
6 Ice Boost/Samecarn/Kamui Miracle
7 Ice Amp
8 Evade Elec/Ice Break

NOTE: Teddie probably needs some work because both Amrita/Kamui Miracle are
      both kinda useless in most boss battles
----------------
* Naoto *
1 Agidyne
2 Bufudyne
3 Ziodyne
4 Garudyne
5 Megidolaon
6 Mind Charge
7 Mahamaon
8 Mamudaon

NOTE: Invigorate 3 and Shield of Justice could be used to replace 7 and 8 if
      you're planning to use Naoto against Marg
NOTE: For best performance against Marg, this setup is not reasonable. It's
      also not reasonable to reconfig Naoto's setup for 1 battle. Thus, the
      conclusion is, pick someone else or whatever. ;)
------------------------------
NOTE: Samecarn can be easily replaced by using Balm of Lifes/Revival Beads
NOTE: Feel free to subsitute as needed. Breaks/Boosts etc... are useful, but
      not always needed. Fix it to fit your style. The '/' could also means,
      pick whatever you want.
 - Lastly, this list may be changed to suit other's recommendations/needs.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Unlike the Quick Guide I did for P4V, this guide has many purposes. It's not|
|  simply to get Max Slinks, but to get a number of things left undone or     |
|  missed in one's previous playthrough. The following is a list of things we |
|  will/should achieve (Goals/Missions):                                      |
|                                                                             |
|  1) Get and Read All Books                                                  |

|  3) Hardcore Risette Fan Trophy: I want to figure out the mystery.          |
|     NOTE: Didn't get this because I was on Very Easy; TOO MUCH EXP          |
|  4) Collect All Costumes, All Allies' Skills, All Skill Cards (Optional)    |
|  5) Get to Marg at the Lowest Possible Level (Optional)                     |
|     * My own challenge                                                      |
|                                                                             |
|  Differences From Original Walkthrough:                                     |
|  - Soccer instead of Basketball (Strength)                                  |
|  - Band instead of Drama (Sun)                                              |
|  - Aiya at Night for The Ramen Way; No Fortunes At Night                    |
|  - 5 Bike Rides For Priestess in order to get Mind Charge                   |
|  - 5 Bike Rides For Chariot in order to get Bufudyne                        |
|  - 5 Bike Rides For Lovers, AoA attack up                                   |
|  - 2 Bikes Rides For Naoto, Bufudyne + Ziodyne (same as before)             |
|  - Festival Invites from Chie, Rise, and Ai; no Sun                         |
|  - Margaret                                                                 |
|                                                                             |
|  What is left is Max All S-Links, so I'll provide a list of personas needed |
|  from one month to the next.                                                |
|                                                                             |
| TIPS: 1) Hold Triangle in order to speed through the text.                  |
|       2) Press Start in order to skip animation scenes.                     |
|       3) Press Start twice to get into Fast Forward mode (FF it)            |
|                                                                             |
| Short Terms: To Reduce the size of this, use shorter terms                  |
|   3 Book = Bookshop has 3 books to buy                                      |
|   Q: 3 = Question in class; or in general. 3rd one down is the answer.      |
|   FT = Free Time; Do anything you want                                      |
|   CB = Classroom Building     PB = Practice Building                        |
|   TI = Turn In, Quest        SFP = Samegawa Flood Plains                    |
|                                                                             |
| Warnings/Alerts/Caution:                                                    |
|   I won't be telling you a few things and it's up to you to do them or not. |
|   1) I'm not doing all quests                                               |
|   2) Bug Catching; it's assumed you can do it without me notifying you      |
|   3) Planting/Harvesting/Buying Seeds; Same as Bug Catching                 |
|   4) This is based on NG+ with all trait parameters already maxed           |
|                                                                             |

AUTHOR NOTES YOU SHOULD CONSIDER READING:

Reading books is optional, except you should be aware of 5 types of books.
Hyperspeed, the 2 fishing books, and the 2 bug books. For all other books, if
you find something better to do, do that instead. Plenty of Free Nights.

At one point in time, Devil will be done, but you can still go to it in order
to get money. That's the whole point of these Devil ST. At that point, they
are optional. Just something you can do if you're looking for something to do.
This can also be said with Work Pub.

All Bike Rides will pick the Future option. If you want to reorganize their
skills, you're going have to sacrafice something in this guide. All except 2
or 3 days are used for something useful. There are Free Days though, but those
are mainly Rainy days that don't offer any Slinks/Bike Rides.

Movie invites, those phone calls that you get from teammates, I will give you
an example of what you can do, but remember, always reload after seeing them.
You should NOT continue as is. Plus, I didn't include all of them, so you'll
have to decide which ones you want to see.

As for Model Making, that's just extra thing you can do besides Book reading.
They are fully optional, but it beats sleeping/desk work; not Slinks. Books
get you a trophy, but sadly, Dolls/Model don't.

Fortune picking for Temper is used since I have a lot of Free Times. This also
increases the number of avaliable of Days that we can do something else. I
didn't reload on any of them, but just for testing or that I know it's needed

From Aeon 9 to Aeon 10, a ST is needed no matter what. I tested this with
picking fortunes, but it still didn't rank up.

For completeness, Rank 11 should be done, but if you don't care, skip it. By
end game, you don't have to use everyone. So skipping on a few is reasonable,
but you should find something else to replace it. If a Slink needs a meeting,
that is a good choice. Aiya, ST with cat... no

Dolls will be noted by Month basis

This is done in conjunction with getting Hardcore Risette Fan. However, it's
not noted here. Deviates from true purpose.

I have not fully tested the 9/19 Death and Bike Ride Lovers trade off. In
theory, it should work 100%. However, my game doesn't have this. If you are not
able to get 9/19's bike ride with Rise, just replace it with Death and ignore
2/5's Death visit (replace it with Free Day)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|PERSONAS Til 18th: None - No Compendium/TV World                             |

NOTE: Starting from 10/4 and beyond. I'll start having Free Nights because I
 assume you can do whatever you want, unless I decide to spend a night with
 an Slink instead, then you must follow those instead. I already got the
 Book trophy before, so you can do whatever you want. My schedule is changed
 based on my own needs while you keep reading books. Just don't follow mine.
 Regardless of what you do, we still have A LOT of Free Nights. Be prepared to
 be bored and start doing what I do, or... out of pure boredom, start fishing
 and Slinks At Night.

most of them. I find Slinks at night. Their conversation/present is awesome.

I'm skipping the Ski Trip and Hollow Forest. Not important. Just remember
doing what I said on 1/30. Those are needed for the NG+ Secret Boss.

NOTE: KEEP A SAVE AT 2/13, BEFORE YOU FINISH HOLLOW FOREST. DO NOT DELETE IT!

----------
 * 3/20 *
----------
 You may want to create seperate save for this part just in case you mess up.
Also, do NOT delete that save you have for 2/13. It will suck if you don't
have a backup. Marg is NG+ exclusive, but that doesn't mean you should replay
the game again for Marg, again. This new save on 3/20 should be before you
finish talking to your last Slink. I picked Marg just because she's near the
save point

   1) Finish talking to the Slink and get to Junes
      + Hunger 10
   2) Talk to Nanako/Dojima
   3) Go the Velvet Room and that part of the storyline
      + Orb of Sight
      -> It starts raining
   4) GO BACK INTO THE VELVET ROOM
      > Something is different
      > You don't see Igor anywhere
      ... (I typed the whole script. It's spoilers. Relocated to end)
      + Obtained Aqua Invitation
      Marg: I look forward to seeing you again.
      + Kicked out of Velvet Room
   5) Attendant -> 2 -> 1/2 -> Attend. -> 2 -> Attend -> 2, 2, 2, Any for rest
      + Kicked into world map
   6) GO BACK INTO Shopping District -> VELVET ROOM
      + Received Mandala Robe      (Only if Max Slinks)

  NOTE: If you didn't get step 4 and you skipped it. You're screwed. If you
      re-did it again following the same step and still didn't get step 4,
      your screwed. Simple as that. Go back to your 2/13 save and try again.
      Ask on the boards for more assistance, but really, there's no point.
      Just answers that tell you to start over or make sure you did all the
      requirements. Which are
      
      1) Must be on NG+ and see True End on previous playthrough
      2) Get Rank 10 (max) on Empress Slink before 3/20
      3) Defeat all the bonus bosses all in dungeons before 3/20
      4) On 3/20, must talk to Marg in Shopping District's Velvet Room before
         talking to Izanami/Gas Station Attendant. You fail if you decided to
         enter TV World first and to save your game.
         NOTE: Most common mistake/failure + no backup saves = stupid

|   Fighting Margaret on NG+                    |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|  Well, if you've done everything as needed and you did get Aqua Invitation, |
|  then you are set and ready to go. To be honest, Marg really isn't that     |
|  difficult if you play on any difficulty except Hard/Very Hard. With a four |
|  party team, you don't really need to prepare much except the basics. There |
|  are a few things you might



/-----------------------------------------------\
|   The Real Challenge                          |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|  With all that said, the true, real challenge is to Solo Margaret with a    |
|   Level 25 MC on Very Hard (or Hard, doesn't matter). I have already done it|
|   and it wasn't easy (very time consuming). Well to start off, I did this   |
|   together with getting Hardcore Risette Fan, so staying at low level was   |
|   apart of my attention throughout the whole game. However, I customized my |
|   difficulty to include everything in Very Easy, but set EXP to Less. Then  |
|   all you have to do is flee all shadows, use Yoshi to destroy everything,  |
|   but be able to get all Rise quotes for certain boss battles. On top of    |
|   that, make sure everyone is alive at all battle in order to split the EXP |
|   up. There is no goal to this except self satisfaction. The same concept of|
|   defeating Theo/Liz Solo on Maniac in P3P, except level wasn't an issue.   |
|   Not to gloat, but I did that as well. This however, is harder than that.  |

|  Why is it harder? Because it is not the matter of timing for that perfect  |
|   Repel Physical and it's also not cycling through a combination over and   |
|   over again. This time around. We have to dodge all those Mind Charged     |
|   Megidolaons and if you're lucky, dodge her Morning Star as well. There may|
|   be a better way to defeat her later in the future, but I like to show what|
|   I did as to an understanding of how it can be possilbe. I'll be showing   |
|   2 methods. The first was my original and it doesn't work. The second is   |
|   where I won, but it's fully based on luck.

|  Method 1: Absorb Megidolaon With Enough HP
|   Weapon: Soul Crusher (Doesn't matter, it serves no purpose)
|   Armor:  Full Jin-Baori (Also, pointless)
|   Access: Amaterasu Fob (Increase HP by 30%)

|  I don't want to get too much into details of it's failure rate. With the   |
|   Fob, I turned my MC's HP of 279 to 362. With my Persona setup, I managed  |
|   to survive Marg's Charged Medigolaon with 30 - 70 HP to spare, and that   |
|   was with both Heat Riser and Defend. That would mean, I would get to      |
|   attack Marg with Hassou with Heat Riser, but I would need to waste a turn |
|   with Defend. This strategy works if it wasn't for the fact that we are    |
|   limited to 60 turns. On so many occassion, I got to her to use Diaharn and|
|   look 1/3rd of a her HP before I lost.

|  An alternative to this, but still failed, is to change her pattern. Instead|
|   of Fire,Ice, it can turn into Megid/Fire -> Ice/Elec. So after Megid/Fire,|
|   we can attack her instead of waiting. This doesn't work as well because of|
|   the fact that we need to use up both 2 Rises lifelines in order to make   |
|   this happen. When you are fully revived by Rise, Marg will get another    |
|   turn, which will ruin her cycle with Fire.

|  Method 2: DODGE ALL Megidolaons
|   Weapon: Soul Crusher (Pointless)
|   Armor:  Mandala Robe (100 Def, 55 Evasion, +50% EXP)
|   Access: Barbaric Bracers (Double chance of dodging attacks)               |

|  I would have say, I didn't notice until after I won, but Mandala Robe was  |
|   from Maxing All Slinks. It would seem that it now has another purpose     |
|   besides EXP giving. Barbaric Bracers, I got it from a rare chest in either|
|   floor 5 or 6 in Magatsu Mandala.

|  When I defeated her, my Yoshi wasn't at max stats, so you will probably    |
|   have an easier time if you do. I used 3 personas to do this. Tri-Auto     |
|   Beelzebub, Fully Customized Yoshi, and Fully Customized Trumpeter.        |

|  Yoshitsune Lv99      Trumpeter Lv99     Beelzebub Lv99
|   Power Charge         Debilitate         Auto-Maraku
|   Hassou Tobi          Heat Riser         Auto-Mataru
|   Invigorate 3         Spell Master       Auto-Masuku
|   Absorb Wind          Absorb Fire        Debilitate*
|   Absorb Fire          Absorb Elec        Absorb Physical
|   Absorb Ice           Absorb Wind        ...
|   Absorb Elec          Absorb Physical
|   Enduring Soul        Enduring Soul

|       St   82          56                 61
|       Ma   66          69                 69
|       En   74          59                 56
|       Ag   88          71                 71 
|       Lu   60          57                 47 

|  I think it's fair to explain my setup. Invig 3 is on my Yoshi to reduce a  |
|   turn to which I need to heal with any items. I spend more time on Yoshi   |
|   then I do with Trump. Absorb all of those in order to heal after Hassou.  |
|   Physical will only be be blocked. I have it on Trump instead. Absorb Elec |
|   needed because both Yoshi/Trump Rpl Elec, which heals Marg for 400, we    |
|   can't have that repeated. Debilitate and Heat Riser are both needed. We   |
|   will use Heat Riser more often than Debil. because it lasts longer. Debil.|
|   is used when both Heat Riser and Power Charge is on and we feel we can    |
|   attack on the next turn. Debil is also used all 3 Life Lines are used up  |
|   and having just Heat Riser isn't enough to guarantee a dodge. So far, this|
|   duo (Heat Riser + Debil) has always given me a 100% dodge of Megidoloan,  |
|   not including those 9999 one though.                                      |

|  Spell Master is there to make this duo only cost 15 SP. With 172 SP, there |
|   not much I can work with. Rise does heal about 17 SP per turn, but that's |
|   too random. At extreme cases, a Bead Melon or 2 might be needed, but that |
|   should be uncommon because of Invig 3. Lastly, Beelzebub's only purpose is|
|   their Tri-Auto. I did have Invig 3 and Regen 3, but it shouldn't matter.  |

|  3 Lifelines: Enduring Soul; Rise Blocks Deadly Attack; Rise Revives You    |

|  Start with Tri-Auto and do this at the beginning:
|   -> Yoshi -> Power Charge -> Hassou -> Power Charge -> Trump: Heat Riser   |
|     -> Debil. -> Yoshi: Hassou
|  NOTE: With this approach, your first Hassou won't force Marg to her elemet |
|    phase yet. So that's considered a 2nd attack. If you decided to go with  |
|    Power Charge -> Debil. -> Hassou, she'll start her elements.             |

|  After that, don't bother using Debilitate unless her MC + Megid is next and|
|    Heat Riser is already on, AND your lifelines are all used up. Else, use  |
|    Heat Riser should be 1st your priority followed with Power Charge. Most  |
|    of your Hassou should just be with Heat Riser. Power Charge should always|
|    be in the mix of when you attack with Hassou. Also, don't attack if      |
|    you don't have Heat Riser on (you'll likely miss). After that point, pray|
|    on good fortune because you'll need to dodge those Megidoloans like your |
|    life depended on it. Successful dodges per Megid based on experience:    |
|                                                                             |
|    Nothing:            Dodge 1 out of every 3 Megidolaons                   |
|    Heat Riser:         Dodge 6 out of every 8 Megidolaons                   |
|    Heat Riser + Debil: Dodge 5 out of every 5 Megidolaons                   |
|                                                                             |
|  The concept is, you must save your lifelines for rainy days. That being,   |
|   surprisers. No Heat Riser on when Morning Star is used on you. Don't have |
|   a lifeline when 9999 Megid are used. Winners are when you don't use any   |
|   lifelines until AFTER Marg uses Diaharan. That, I know, it hard. Took me  |
|   8 to 10 hours, nonstop, to get it right. If you have no patience or a     |
|   sense for a challenge, don't do this. Even with all my explanation, it's  |
|   hard to grasp what I'm talking about. So, I suggest to take this all in   |
|   with a grain of salt and get your experience first hand before trying to  |
|   understand. When you do have a grasp on this, maybe you can understand    |
|   following script:                                                         |
|                                                                             |
|  - Power Charge -> 2 Phy -> Hassou -> 2 Phy -> Power Charge -> 2 Phy        |
|    -> Heat Riser -> 2 Phy -> Debil. -> 2 Phy -> Hassou -> Fire/Ice          |
|    -> Power Charge -> Elec/Wind -> Heat Riser -> MC/Megid -> Dodge -> Debil.|
|    -> Fire/Ice -> Hassou -> Elec/Wind -> Heat Riser -> MC/Megid             |
|    -> * Power Charge -> Fire/Ice -> Hassou -> Elec/Wind -> Heat Riser       |
|    -> MC/Megid -> Dodge -> Power Charge -> Continue/Repeat with *           |
|                                                                             |
|  Lastly, I don't think it's possilbe to do this at a lower level since this |
|   is the lowest level you can get it at. Even if it was at level 15, the    |
|   strategy would be the same and amount of difficulty/luck would stay the   |
|   same as well. I admit, I did get 2K worth of EXP accidently for HRF, but  |
|   at that level 2K is not that big of a gap for a level up. I still needed  |
|   1.5K in order to get to level 26.

      Marg: I wonder how many times it's been that we've seen each other like
            this
      Marg: Apparently, we met for a purpose after all
      Marg: Do you remember...?
      Marg: The Velvet Room is inseparable from the heart of it invited
            guests...
      Marg: The shape of the room and its residents are selected by my master,
            based on the number of guests and their destiny...
      Marg: But my predecessor is gone from this place for a completely
            different reason.
      Marg: No one ordered her to leave... She left of her own will, to
            accomplish her own ends.
      Marg: Such a thing cannot happen to the residents of the Velvetr Room.
            So I wished to know the reasons behind it...
      Marg: My ultimate aim was to bring that foolish girl to her senses and
            return her here.
      Marg: To do so, I had to know why she left. And I felt that the key to
            understanding rested with you.
      Marg: But now... I'm even more confused
      Marg: I can't say whether her choice in fact was foolish or not...
      Marg: All residents of the Velvet Room are destined to find
            themselves... It was true for her as well.
      Marg: Why did she suddently give up her quest...? That was my greatest
            worry.
      Marg: But then again... Maybe my premises were flawed
      Marg: Maybe she found her asnwer, and left this place...
      Marg: In which case, my role is not to blindly bring her back.
      Marg: What was it that she gained? And... Who am I?
      Marg: What I may receive from you will most likely show me the answer
            to those questions.
      Marg: This is why fate did not bring a guest who only talks, but one who
            holds unmatched power...
      Marg: I would like to issue a request to you. Not as my master's guest,
            but a personal request from me to you.
      Marg: Would you fight a match against me?
      Marg: I won't force you, of course. There's no reason for you to go that
            far.
      Marg: After all, if we were to clash... I might sever your thread of
            destiny.
      Marg: But encounters always bring change to both sides. If you emerge
            victorious, you will surely gain something as well
      Marg: Pleas consider the offer carefully before making your decision.
      Marg: Should you opt to accept my request... Bring this to me where I
            will wait.
