    Q) How many items are there?  What are they all?
    
    A) 47 in total, 12 on each 'layer' of the box apart from 11 on the fourth 
       layer.  However, 10 of these are comprised of four pieces each, so there are
       actually 77 items/item-pieces to find.  The 47 are:

    Q) How do I find the items?
    
    A) It depends.  There are basically two types of items; those that are in fixed
       locations and those which are randomly placed.  The fixed ones 'shine' 
       repeatedly to indicate where they are. and this can be seen from quite a 
       distance.  The random ones don't shine, but have a small probability of 
       appearance when  you're investigating the usual shines that occur to show
       where the zoom mode should be used to see small fishes.  Random ones can 
       also show up over and over again, for no benefit upon collection.
    
       Of the fixed ones, some aren't available for collection from the get-go 
       though in their normal location.  These are;
    
       * Patrick's Pocket Watch      (unlocked as standard in the plot) 
       * Old Bracelet                (unlocked by the 'White Dolphin' email)
       * Life Beads                  (unlocked by the 'Strange Ceremony' email)
       
       Precise details of unlocking can be found below in the item description.
    
       Of the 28 random ones, whilst the exact location is random, the items are 
       divided between the different play areas.  They are distributed as follows:
    
       Manaurai Sea
       ------------
       * Memorable Shell

    Q) So how do I find all the random items?
    
    A) Good question.  I haven't yet!  They can sometimes appear with very low 
       probability, and can also occur repeatedly eg, you find 10 Memorable Shells
       in a row (for no benefit after the first one) but can't find one of the 
       other items after hours of searching!  It seems that their propensity to be
       found isn't entirely random; it's possible a certain item is more or less 
       likely to appear depending on locations recently visited, or perhaps some 
       are unlocked in certain seasons or after a certain amount of time has 
       elapsed.  
    
       I've been able to determine that the random item availability isn't 
       affected either by performance in Diving Guide or Photo requests (I've 
       played a file with neither ever fulfilled and plenty of random items easily
       found), but further than that the jury's still out on a method cleverer 
       than just hours of searching!
     
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q) Any searching tips?
    
    A) Well, first of all get the mechanics right: swim near the surface you're 
       searching (the floor is best most of the time) so the cursor goes yellow 
       rather than blue.  Now swim along and gently wave the cursor left and right
       to 'scan' the most ground.  When it flashes, and a chime sounds, use the 
       + button to go into search mode and see if the shine contains anything 
       other than sealife.  9 out of 10 times it won't, but don't give up!
    
       For the Manaurai Sea items, my search routine is usually to park the 
       Gabbiano next to the Secret Lake, and search the Ki Tsuo Promenade and 
       Secret Lake sandy ocean floors.  This takes about 5 mins and an item is 
       usually found; whether it's a new one or not is another thing.  And don't 
       give up once you've got one, as I've found 3 on one dive before.
    
       For the other locations, the floors in the big rooms in the Great Aqua Cave
       are best (the first cave, and Great Column etc).  In the Abyss, search the 
       sandy floor in the Graveyard.  In the Ruins I'd guess go for the sand again,
       and the ship deck in Ocean's Graveyard.  Then again, I've not found many of
       the items in these areas so I wouldn't consider myself an expert yet!
    
       Every now and again your partner will find an item, but this doesn't seem 
       to signify anything particular - it's just one you haven't got to yet (or,
       frustratingly, one you've already found.  Shut it, porpoise!). 
    
       Shells turn up all the time, so be prepared to hate the Memorable Shell with
       a passion.  And it might just be me, but the Striated Frogfish seems to be
       the greatest bearer of items as far as accompanying sealife goes.   
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q) Does anything happen when all of them are found?
    
    A) Will have to wait for that one.  Seeing as the unlockable for completing 
       the Guide to Marine Life is the White Mother unlocked in the Aquarium, I'd
       imagine it's a fairly minor unlocakble if anything...  However, there is 
       another hint that might indicate something, an email recieved when the plot
       is completed:
    
    Leonard D.:   Email: Treasure Trove
    
                  "Apologies for writing to you out of the blue.  I specialise in 
                  all manner of oceanic research: I suppose you caould say we're 
                  in the same line of work.  I have heard a lot about your 
                  activities and it got me interested in the Manaurai Sea.  Along 
                  with new species of giant whales, you've also discovered ancient
                  ruins.  It sounds like this sea is full of rich pickings, with 
                  statues and carvings waiting to be salvaged.  I hope to be able
                  to visit the Manaurai Sea at some point and look forward to 
                  meeting you while I am there."
    
       So maybe he arrives to give you the 48th treasure if the other 47 are found?
       Unlikely, perhaps, as I know all 47 were found in the Japansese version and
       heard no mention of a 48th.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q) Do you need to get all the items to complete the game? 
    
    A) To complete the plot, no, only the Dolphin Medal and Patrick's Pocket Watch
       are essential.  If you want to fill your Guide to Marine Life, you're also
       going to need to get the Life Beads (Orca), Old Bracelet (Beluga), 
       Shark-tooth Necklace (Magu Tapah) and Pirate's Compass (if you don't know 
       where the Pirate's Ship is to get to all the Ocean's Graveyard creatures!).
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q) So collecting all the shells unlocks new hairstyles?
    
    A) Yep, Simple blond hairstyle (female) or Mixed blond hairstyle (male).  When
       found, you get the folowing exchanges:
    
    Catherine:  "Looks like you've been busy, collecting all these shells.  You've
                got quite a collection, from normal kinds to some rather rare ones
                too.  While we're on the subject of shells, don't you think they
                look kind of like hairstyles?  What's wrong?  It looks like you've
                got something on your mind...  What?  You want to change your 
                hairstyle?  Okay, I see.  Well, if that's the case, I'll have 
                Douglas prepare some material!"
    
    Douglas
    Ribona:       Email: New Hair Style
    
                  "Catherine asked me to send over some new hair-styling goods, so
                  here you go.  I just wonder what exactly you're planning to do
                  with them...  Is someone going for a complete style overhaul?"
    
       As you can see, Catherine nearly manages to outdo herself in terms of 
       embarrassingly contrived links, from shells to hairstyles.  Only beaten later
       on by her Picture Frame to hairstyles debacle.

    1)  Dolphin Medal
    *****************
    
    Description:  A commemorative gold medal with a dolphin and a bay leaf motif,
                  reading "16th Drift Race Champion".
    
    Location:     Blue Hall, L2 (bottom right), on a platform coral just inside the 
                  north entrance.  Item becomes available after the email below is
                  read, sent after the Coral Forest survey is complete.
    
    Alfred
    Tollman:      Email: Mysterious Manaurai
    
                  "It seems that you have completed the ocean floor topography 
                  survey of Coral Forest.  Many thanks for this.  The Manaurai Sea
                  remains full of mysteries, making surveys of this nature 
                  extremely valuable.  Speaking of mysteries, south of the lagoon
                  there is a spot known as Blue Hall.  Occasionally unusual items
                  have been known to turn up there, brought by the ocean currents.
                  If you have time, perhaps you could go and see what you can 
                  find..."
    
    Unlocks:      This is a plot event and thus allows the plot to continue; the 
                  Dolphin can now be followed back to the Lagoon and then led out
                  to become your partner, which leads onto the next plot event.

    2)  Ancient Bronze Mirror
    *************************
    
    Description:  A bronze mirror depicting an image of the legendary white whale.
                  Not unlike 3rd century Japanese mirrors.
    
    Partial:      Bronze Mirror Fragment; It seems to be an old bronze mirror.
    
    Locations:    Rowa's Jewel Box, K1 (bottom left), on the sandy floor.
                  L3 (bottom left), on the central rock in between coral.
                  E Maraui Hollow, D2 (top right), on the sandy floor.
                  E3 (top left), in the middle of the rocky outcrop.
    
    Catherine:    "Looks like you've found all the Bronze Mirror Fragments.  Let's
                  put this thing back together and take a look...  It seems to be
                  east Asian, and probably for religious services.  Judging by the 
                  shape, it could be of Japanese origin...  The engraved whale 
                  likeness resembles that of the legends.  It could even be a 3rd
                  century ancient bronze mirror.  
    
                  But why would a Japanese artifact like this be here?  There are
                  legends in Manaurai about sacred whales.  Creatures revered by
                  the locals since days of old.  Blue whales, the largest creatures
                  on earth appear in these legends from time to time.  Where were
                  they seen?  Well, with a body as large as that, certainly not in 
                  the shallow sea that surrounds the islands.  Maybe you should 
                  look for an area facing the open sea."

    3)  Pirate's Compass
    ********************
    
    Description:  A message in ancient lettering says:  We're born of the sea, to
                  it we return.  <<E-5, H-6, E-9>>
    
    Partial:      Compass Piece; Mysterious old apparatus.
    
    Locations:    Secret Lake, J9 (top right), in the sand near the central coral.
                  B8 (top left), in the coral on the edge of the drop-off. 
                  Taganua Bay, H1 (bottom left), in the sand near the shallows.
                  Lagoon M1, (bottom right), in the sand between two rocks.
    
    Catherine:    "Looks like you've found all the Compass Pieces.  Let's put this
                  thing back together and take a look...  It seems to be an old 
                  nautical compass, with Chinese-influuenced designs on it.  I'd
                  say it's an 18th century European piece.  What's this?  There's 
                  a latin inscription and a map...  I'll have a read through.  
                        
                         - We're born of the sea -
                         - To it we return - 
                         - Years filled by the tide -
                         - Of lands which we yearn -
                         - To Whale Island we head - 
                         - To home we return - 
                         - Triumphant are we - 
                         - 3 stars, see them burn - 
                  
                  It doesn't make much sense...  But the map, it looks like part of
                  Manaurai, and the 3 stars marked on it correspond with <<E-5>>
                  <<H-6>> <<E-9>> on our map!  What could they possibly represent?"
    
    Unlocks:      Pirate Ship appears in one of the three locations on the compass
                  once approximately 60% of the map has been uncovered.  At this 
                  point the email from Douglas below is sent.
                  The specific location of the Ship varies each day but can be 
                  determined by surfacing when diving near the possible locations
                  and looking around.  Once the Pirate Ship is entered (through a 
                  hole in the bow) it will carry you to the Ocean's Graveyard.

                  "Hey, how's it going?  Recently I've heard rumours that local 
                  fishermen in Paoul have seen a Ghost Ship!  It's strange that 
                  even in the 21st century, tales like this persist.  Anyhow, I 
                  did a bit of investigating and apparently the same story seems
                  to appear every 40 years or so!  ...I wonder what it all means?
                  It would make a great article, but I need some more material.
                  If you have anything that might help me with the article, get in

    4)  Storyboard
    **************
    
    Description:  Carved wooden board with a story telling an old Paoul Republic
                  story.  It shows a woman holding a fruit.
    
    Partial:      Storyboard Piece; Has an engraving on it.
    
    Locations:    Den of Spirits, H3 (bottom right), on the sand by the goby rock.
                  Ancestral Reef, K7 (bottom left), on the sandy floor.
                  Deep Valley, F6 (top right), in the northwest crevasse point.
                  E1 (bottom right), on the rock between the seaweed.
    
    Catherine:    "Looks like you've found all the Storyboard Pieces.  Let's put 
                  this thing back together and take a look...  It's a piece of 
                  traditional Paoul folk craft, that has been carved out of 
                  mahogany.  It shows a myth that was told across neighbouring 
                  islands.  When it comes to myths and legends, Douglas knows it 
                  all.  I wonder what kind of tale it tells.  I'll get in touch 
                  with him as soon as I can!"  
    
    Douglas:      Email: The Judgement Fruit
     
                  "Catherine told me you found a storyboard.  It may be from a 
                  Paoul myth called "The Judgement Fruit".  It goes a bit like 
                  this...
    
                  Once, on a small island, a mysterious tree grew.  Its fruit was 
                  highly sought after so the people worked to protect it.  One day,
                  the king of a larger island invaded and killed all the people.  
                  He brought back the fruit to his queen, who devoured it greedily.
                  Suddenly, it began to rain heavily.  It continued for over a 
                  year, and the island sank into the ocean.  It is said that the 
                  fruit was cursed...
    
                  I guess it must have some kind of moral."

    5)  Flame-patterned Vessel
    **************************
    
    Description:  Flames, or maybe water, adorn this item.  It dates back between
                  2,000 and 10,000 years.
    
    Partial:      Earthenware Piece;  An old piece of earthenware.
    
    Location:     *Great Aqua Cave*

    Catherine:    "Looks like you've found an Earthenware Piece.  Can't believe 
                  you found an item like this in a limestone cave!  You may have 
                  stumbled on a very significant object...  I'd better let Mr 
                  Tollman see it, he's well known and has friends in the right 
                  places, I'm sure he can put us in touch with someone who can 
                  help."

    Takahashi:    Email: Unexplained Fragment
    
                  "My name is Takahashi, and I work for the National Museum of 
                  Ethnology in Japan.  Mr Tollman was kind enough to inform me that
                  fragments of an earthenware vessel with flame patterns had been 
                  found in Manaurai in an underwater cavern.
    
                  Flame-patterned vessels were produced mainly in Japan some 
                  4000-5000 years ago.  I am intrigued that such an artifact was
                  found in a cavern in the South Pacific.  This may be evidence of
                  a mass-migration of the people of the Pacific Rim.  If you find 
                  any other fragments, please allow me to assist in their 
                  analysis."
    
    Catherine:    "Looks like you've found all the Earthenware Pieces.  Let's put
                  this thing back together and take a look...  I believe it's a 
                  piece from the Japanese Jomon period.  Often referred to as 
                  "flame-patterned", others call it "water flow" instead as it 
                  also resembles a surge of water.  Strange, considering fire and 
                  water are opposites.  Don't you think the description is a little
                  ambiguous?   
    
                  Someone I know is particularly interested in this kind of find,
                  I'll get in touch right away.  They're bound to like this."

    Takahashi:    Email: An Important Find
    
                  "This is Takahashi from the National Museum of Ethnology in 
                  Japan.  I hear you have gathered more fragments of the 
                  flame-patterned vessel.  Viewing the pictures of the fragments, I
                  can tell this is an important find.  This vessel closely 
                  resembles those made in the south of the Chiba region of Japan.
    
                  Many of the remains in Chiba show evidence of South Pacific 
                  influence.  I believe that 10,000 years ago, Chiba and Manaurai
                  may have had some kind of interaction and I want to research this
                  further.  As a token of my appreciation, I include a small gift."

    6)  Sphere of Manaurai
    **********************
    
    Description:  Found in a limestone cave, this metallic orb has ancient writing
                  on it, but its usage is unknown.
    
    Location:     *Great Aqua Cave*
                  White Room, E4 (bottom left), on the white mound in the centre.
    
    Catherine:    "That's quite an interesting find.  This is likely to be the 
                  cave's most inner sanctum.  Perhaps this is the concealed area
                  that is said to be home to the Mermaid's Treasure?"
    
    Catherine:    "You've found the Sphere of Manaurai.  It appears to be a 
                  metallic, man-made object, yet remains unblemished even after 
                  all this time underwater.  It's so intricately detailed, and 
                  virtually flawless in shape.  The people of ancient Paoul didn't
                  possess ironware or writing making the origin of this an even 
                  greater mystery.
    
                  Did you know, objects of an undetermined origin like this are
                  referred to as ooparts, or "Out Of Place Artifacts"?  It'll 
                  definitely make a worthy donation to a museum."

    7)  Intriguing Idol

    Description:  An unusually-shaped earthen figure of unknown origin.  It gives
                  off a strange feeling of foreboding...
    
    Partial:      Stautue Piece;  A slightly eerie-looking piece...
    
    Location:     *Underwater Ruins of Marige Atoll*
                  E3 (top right), in a hollow in the south side of the wall.

    Notes:        When each piece is found, one of the following poem lines is 
                  read out, and a threatening email sent with a new hairstyle.  A
                  final email is sent with another hairstyle when the item is 
                  complete.  This is the only item that technically has a correct
                  order in which to collect the pieces (as I've ordered it above),
                  so the poem and emails are in the right order.  Not that it 
                  really matters, mind.

                 inscription, allowing us to decipher the script used in the ruins.
                 It is written in two separate languages, but means the same in 
                 both.  Half is written in ancient Manaurai script.  The other half
                 is in the carved symbols, or petroglyphs, of ancient Paoul, which
                 we can already comprehend.  Using these petroglyphs, we can 
                 decipher the Manaurai script.  I'll make a report of the 
                 language's script and grammar, which will allow you to deciper it

                 bad, was it.  Hopefully, now we'll be able to decipher the 
                 ancient text!"

    9)  Anomalocaris Fossil
    ***********************
    
    Description:  These large carnivorous marine creatures lived during the 
                  Cambrian period around 540m years ago.

    Catherine:    "Looks like you've found all the Fossil Segments.  Let's put
                  this thing back together and take a look...  Anomalocaris was a
                  fierce carnivorous marine creature that came into being over 500
                  million years ago as a result of the Cambrian Explosion.  Its 
                  appearance is like nothing from any other era, and was laughed 
                  at when first shown to scientific society.  Hard to believe this
                  once existed, isn't it?
    
                  This truly is an unprecedented event, the first fossil of its 
                  type to be discovered in Manaurai.  We must take good care of 
                  this piece of history."

    12) Jingdezhen Plate
    ********************
    
    Description:  A piece of Jingdezhen pottery made in 16th or 17th century China.
                  A highly sought after antique item.
    
    Partial:      Plate Fragment;  It seems to be an old Chinese plate.

    Catherine:    "Looks like you've found all the Plate Fragments.  Let's put 
                  this thing back together and take a look...  This is a piece of 
                  world famous pottery from Jingdezhen, a city in the Jiangxi 
                  region of China.  The production of this pottery began hundreds
                  of years ago and was prolific enough to be exported across 
                  Europe, Islamic countries and all over the world, meaning that
                  prices and quality vary a lot.  
    
                  This item, however, looks like it could be a valuable piece.  A
                  group of antique specialists recently came to the main island, 
                  so this could be a good opportunity to have it valued.  I'll 
                  contact Mr Tollman to make the necessary arrangements."
    
    Alfred 
    Tollman:      Email:  W.F. Heaton's Collection
    
                  "The results of the experts' appraisal are in, and they are most
                  surprising!  Although the Jingdezhen Plate is not in good 
                  condition, it apparently has enrmous historical value.  In the
                  16th century, the rich European collector, William Frederick 
                  Heaton, had this plate made for him by one of the most 
                  celebrated craftsmen of the Ming Period.  
    
                  Through various accidents of history, the plate passed through 
                  several nobles' hands and finally disappeared without trace.  
                  That is the plate you found.  You found something of real value.
                  Please accept this as a reward."

    Douglas
    Ribona:       Email: Find the Green Garden
    
                  "Hey, I heard that Catherine isn't her usual self...  I might 
                  have an idea of what the problem is.  I've known her since she 
                  was a kid living in Paoul and I'm pretty sure she's dwelling on 
                  something in her past.
    
                  It'd be best to ask her directly about her past.  But I doubt 
                  it'll be easy to get anything out of her.  You need some clue to
                  get her to open up and talk.  Have you ever seen her pray facing
                  the sea?  She always faces something - the Green Garden.  In the
                  Green Garden you'll find a clue to opening up her heart..."
                  
    Catherine:    "It can't be!?  That belonged to my father!  You picked it up off
                  the ocean floor, didn't you?  My father lost his life in the 
                  waters of Manaurai chasing a dream that he was never able to 
                  realise.  Since I can't keep anything hidden from you, let me 
                  tell you about my purpose...  As I said before, I was born here
                  in Paoul.  
    
                  There's an ancient legend here, maybe you've heard of it?  It's
                  about a huge white animal known as White Mother.  Said to be the
                  origin of all life, its form is a giant, white whale and has 
                  been sighted by many since the days of old.  20 years ago, she
                  revealed herself to my father...  who had chosen not to believe
                  the stories surrounding the whale, concluding it was a UMA, or 
                  Unidentified Mysterious Animal.  
    
                  Bigger even than a blue whale, the planet's largest mammal, this
                  whale was the most significant new species ever and so he began 
                  to pursue it for scientific investigation.  But in doing so, he 
                  pushed us away from normal society as he went against all that 
                  the residents of Paoul held dear.  We were shunned by them and 
                  left to stand alone.  
    
                  Then one day, he just vanished in the Manaurai Sea during an 
                  underwater survey.  The purpose I talk about is to do what my 
                  father couldn't...  to find the White Mother!  By doing so, I 
                  can let go of my regrets and...  restore my father's reputation.
                  That's it, that's what I have to do.  Now if you don't mind, I'd
                  like some time alone.  Thank you for listening to me..."

                  Catherine soon decides to enlist your help in tracing the White

    Location:     Knives Reef, D5 (top left) on the sand at the bottom of the reef.
    
    Catherine:    "That looks like a pretty rare item you've found...  I think it's
                  a shark-tooth necklace.  The shark is a revered animal in many 
                  South Pacific countries, and it's the same here in Paoul too.  
                  Their ferocity and toughness is often admired, especially by 
                  soldiers.  
    
                  The most noted example is the God of Violence and Death who had
                  the form of Magu Tapah, a giant great white.  From the size of 
                  that tooth, it must have been huge, possibly even something 
                  nearing the size of Magu Tapah...  Perhaps it'll bring you luck

                  now.  I am writing because I heard a strange rumour the other 
                  day.  Apparently, there have been a number of sightings of a 
                  mysterious glowing white dolphin by Paoul fishermen who got lost
                  in the area west of Rock Land.  If you're interested, perhaps you
                  could investigate.  This is the area where the ruins were 
                  discovered.  Perhaps other secrets are waiting to be 
                  uncovered..."
    
    Catherine:    "Looks like you've found an Old Bracelet.  It appears to have 
                  some kind of engraving on it.  Let me see...  The emblem is that
                  of a seven-headed serpent...  Which suggests it was once owned 
                  by royalty.  
    
                  This reminds me of an old Paoul folk tale about a kingdom long 
                  ago that was threatened by a great flood and of a brave prince 
                  who could control dolphins using the power of a mysterious 
                  bracelet.  Anyway, he used it to avert the disaster and all was 
                  well.  The bracelet in the story was said to be very distinctive,
                  an item truly fit for a king and possessing unique powers.  
                  Could this really be the same item?  It might be a good idea to
                  wear it, for good luck."

                  most important resource!  That reminds me of a ceremony people

                  They pray to the storm god for good health and even for 
                  immortality before a rock shaped like a human face.  It's just a

                  legend, they belonged to a medium who served Tso, Matah and 
                  Wengah, the Gods of storms, calm and war, who decorated her body
                  with them.  Tso, Matah and Wengah were said to be the ruler of
