    The purpose of this guide is to provide the Final Fantasy XIII Player with 
    accurate information upon which to base informed "purchase" or "otherwise 
    acquire" decisions about useful goods sold by thirteen Vendors.
    
    Although acquisition strategy elements may be inferred from the discussion 
    that follows, it is not the purpose or intent of this guide to suggest 
    strategies for game play. How to use the information provided has been left as
    an exercise in logic for the reader of this guide.
    
    The guide provides complete story-time-line information on the appearance and 
    contents of the 13 stores that appear as Key Items in the Final Fantasy XIII 
    game. Additionally, it addresses the time-line availability of alternate 
    sources for each of the goods sold by the Vendors. Also, it presents a time 
    line of potential sources of Gil for purchase of goods from the Vendors.
    
    As suggested by the "annotated" TABLE OF CONTENTS index, Vendor and Vendor 
    goods information is contained in the first four sections of the guide. The 
    fifth section addresses means for acquiring Gil to make purchases.
    
    The first two Sections of the presented material are intended to be as 
    "spoiler free" as possible. One result is that there is a certain amount of 
    residual ambiguity in the presentation of the second Section. The third 
    Section (which may contain spoilers) is offered to resolve the ambiguity. The 
    fourth Section (which probably contains spoilers) is intended to identify 
    acquisition specifics of Vendor goods by means other than Vendor purchase.
    
    The fifth (and final) Section contains specifics and time-line detail on 
    sources of Gil. Given the level of detail provided, it is fairly certain that 
    at least some readers will find that this is not a "spoiler free" Section.
    
    A feature of the Final Fantasy XIII game is the existence of an 
    Upgrade/Dismantle Process. Many Vendor goods can be used with impact in this 
    process during game play. The Player "purchase" or "otherwise acquire" 
    decision will determine the nature and extent of use for such goods. Thus 
    although details of the Upgrade/Dismantle Process will be left to other 
    writings that specifically address its workings, necessarily elements of the 
    process will be "exposed" during the discussion of this guide.
    
    During game play, available Vendors are accessed by querying any [Save] 
    station using [X], selecting [Shop] from the command list that appears and 
    then selecting the Vendor of interest from the store list that appears.
    
    Convenient access to specific Vendor information in this document may be had 
    by making use of "find feature" of your personal computer (Use Ctrl + F to 
    activate the find feature for a Microsoft Windows-based system). Use the Table
    of Contents and/or the "Index List of Contents" titles or "designator keys" to
    move the text display to the merchandise detail coverage of interest.
    
    For example, for convenient access to the information prepared for a specific 
    Vendor, move to the "Index List of Contents", select the corresponding 
    "designator key" and copy it into the "Find" box. When thus has been done, 
    four appearances of the "designator key" will be found. There will be one 
    appearance for each of the four Vendor information Sections of this guide.
    
    The material of this presentation is based upon facts gathered by play of the 
    original U.S Version of Final Fantasy XIII game (put on sale on March 9, 2010)
    on the Model CECHE01 PlayStation 3 gaming console using Version 3.61 
    PlayStation 3 software.

                          [B] MERCHANDISE AVAILABILITY DETAIL
    
    Merchandise entries under each Vendor are listed in the order they are 
    displayed when the Vendor is selected by using [Shop] at a [Save] Station.
    
    In the tables, "First Availability" refers to the point in the game at which 
    the listed merchandise first becomes available for purchase from the Vendor 
    under consideration. That the same good may have become available "earlier" 
    from an alternate source is not a consideration of the tabular presentation.
    
    Merchandise prices provided are given in terms of "Gil" - the currency used in 
    the Final Fantasy XIII game.
    
    Accessories and Weapons all appear at a "Lv. 1" designated capability in the 
    Main Menu Vendor listings of the Final Fantasy XIII game. For simplicity of 
    presentation, the "Lv. 1" designator has been omitted in the lists that follow.
    
    All such accessories and weapons are candidates for "upgrading" or 
    "dismantling" using the associated process active during game play. Consult one
    of the available Final Fantasy XIII Upgrading and/or Dismantling guides for 
    application details about the process.
    
    
    
    
                                  [*01*] UNICORN MART
    
    Access to this facility is granted as part of the initialization sequence that 
    occurs as a part of the game introduction at the start of Chapter 1.
    
    As can be seen in the list, the initial two-item inventory set expands five 
    times over the event progression of several Chapters in the game.

    character is augmented through major additions twice as the game progresses.

    The initial inventory of six weapons, one for each character, is augmented

                                  [C] STORY-LINE NOTES
    
    The notes presented add detail to the basic descriptive information provided in
    the prior section.
    
    These notes are provided separately so as to preserve the innocence of those 
    wanting to use the merchandise information for each store but not wishing to 
    know more than the absolute minimum of story-line information before proceeding
    through the game.
    
    It is felt that there are no major plot spoilers in the comments provided but 
    there will be a few "revealing" remarks made about the structure of the game.
    
    GENERAL: The thirteen Chapters of the game define a time sequence of events to 
    have each address a separate segment of the total story line. The nature and 
    the content of the shops that appear evolve in reflection of the Chapter-by-
    Chapter, story-line progression.
    
    Most Chapters begin with a series of scenes that introduce characters and 
    present materials that develop the game story line. Some Chapters will require 
    Player involvement as the scenes occur by including a battle action for Player 
    address. The "First Availability" annotations "Start of Chapter" and "After 
    Chapter Start" have been included in the tables to distinguish between these 
    two chapter opening types. "Start of Chapter" has been used to designate events
    that occur after a "scenes only" Chapter opening. "After Chapter Start" denotes
    the fact that a "forced" battle must be completed as part of the Chapter 
    opening event sequence before the designated Vendor good becomes available.
    
    A feature of the evolution is that additions to store contents may appear at 
    any time. Such updates will usually be announced to the Player by display of a 
    "New Merchandise Available" notification enclosed in a rectangular red box in 
    the upper left-hand corner of the game screen. Each announcement appears once 
    and only momentarily so the Player will have to be especially alert to see it.
    
    The "First Availability" annotations entered into the Merchandise tables for 
    the Vendors have, in part, been used to compensate the fleeting nature of the 
    notifications by advising the reader, in general terms, when some of the "New 
    Merchandise Available" announcements occur. Additional information on inventory
    appearances for each Vendor is provided in the notes that follow.
    
    The presented notes also include an introductory discussion of the potential 
    availability of Vendor goods from alternate sources. Specifics on the available
    alternate sources are presented in the next major text subdivision of this 
    document (Section D, Alternate Sources).
    
    The reader is advised that the use of the Upgrade and/or Dismantling processes 
    can also produce units of some of the goods sold by the various Vendors. 
    However, discussion of those sources has been deemed to be outside the scope of
    this guide.
    
    
    
    
    [*01*] UNICORN MART:  This facility becomes available during the initialization
    sequence that occurs to begin Chapter 1 of the game. There is a two-part battle
    with a mechanical monster that must be completed before this Vendor will become
    available. After the battle, there is no "New Merchandise Available" 
    notification when this Vendor appears. Instead there is notification of a 
    tutorial with a choice provided that allows one to view or skip the tutorial. 
    Under "Gameplay Basics" in the Tutorial one will find an explanation of how 
    Vendors may be accessed. If the Datalog is viewed, the Unicorn Mart "electronic
    pass" will appear in the Key Item List. After the tutorial, the Vendor will 
    appear (no availability notification is presented) but only when the [Shop] 
    command is selected at a [Save] station.
    
    The merchandise offered by Unicorn Mart evolves in anticipation of the needs of
    the typical Player in upcoming battles with fiends.
    
    In Chapter 1, the only means available for replacing a character's depleted 
    health during battle is by using a potion. Also, should a character be overcome
    in battle, the available means for returning that character to the battle is by
    use of a Phoenix Down. Unicorn Mart provides means for compensating those 
    difficulties through the inventory items available for purchase.
    
    In other Chapters, fiends will be encountered that use various status attacks 
    such as Poison, Curse, Pain, Daze, Fog and Imperil. For example, enemies 
    featuring the capability to inflict Poison status on a character first appear 
    in Chapter 5 and the "Antidote" entry for Unicorn Mart first appears at the 
    beginning of Chapter 5.
    
    Thus, whenever a new item appears for sale at Unicorn Mart, anticipate meeting 
    fiends in battle with the corresponding status attacks in the Chapters 
    following the appearance.
    
    Also anticipate having items sold by this Vendor available from alternate 
    sources. Usually recovered Treasure Sphere contents plus collected battle 
    spoils will be in sufficient quantity that purchases from this Vendor will not 
    be necessary.
    
    
    
    
    [*02*] B&W OUTFITTERS: There is a battle with a mechanized panther as part of 
    the opening sequence for Chapter 2. One of the "spoils" received from this 
    battle will always be the B&W Outfitters "electronic pass" Key Item that allows
    purchase of goods sold.
    
    At any time B&W Outfitters offers only a basic set of accessories for the game.
    Additional useful accessories can be acquired as the story line is pursued.
    
    There are multiple additions to the B&W Outfitters inventory of goods for sale 
    as the game progresses. Additions normally occur at the start of a Chapter but 
    a "mid-Chapter" addition is seen in Chapter 11. The accessories with "First 
    Availability" of "Partway through Chapter 11" are received as play first enters
    the Mah'habara Subterra. Take the northernmost "open" path out of the Archylte 
    Steppes to proceed to that area.
    
    Most accessories are not listed as being for sale until after an exemplar has 
    been made available during normal story-line game play.  Most accessories sold 
    by this store become available in limited quantity from treasure chests and/or 
    side quest completions as the story line proceeds. In a few cases accessories 
    may be obtained in quantity as spoils of battle from defeated fiends.
    
    
    
    
    [*03*] UP IN ARMS: This Vendor appears as a "spoil" of the second-to-last 
    battle that occurs as a part of the last sequence of actions in Chapter 3. 
    After the electronic pass for Up in Arms access is received, there is a scene 
    change and a second end-of-chapter battle begins. Completion of the second 
    battle sees continuation of action without Player control of Vendor goods 
    through the start of Chapter 4.
    
    Store inventory evolves in depth and scope as the game progresses. Initially 
    basic weapons assigned by the game at character initialization for the first 
    five playable characters are reflected by the weapon set displayed. Later, 
    alternative weapons for each of those characters are introduced as the Chapter 
    6 additions shown.
    
    The final inventory addition occurs in Chapter 11 and adds the basic weapon for
    the sixth playable character as well as weapons with alternate capability for 
    two of the six playable characters. Those weapons, annotated with "First 
    Availability" of "Partway through Chapter 11", are received as play first 
    enters the Mah'habara Subterra. (Take the northernmost "open" path out of the 
    Archylte Steppes to proceed to that area.)
    
    Usually this store will not display a weapon as being for sale until after the 
    point in the game where an acquisition opportunity for that weapon has been 
    provided to the Player. In all cases, one unit of each of the listed weapons 
    will be supplied by the game as a "character initialization" item or as the 
    content of a Treasure Sphere available during game play.
    
    
    
    
    [*04*] LENORA'S GARAGE: The electronic pass allowing use of this Vendor is 
    granted as a "spoil" at the end of a two-part, story-line battle against a 
    large mechanical monster approximately half-way through Chapter 4.
    
    The initial inventory of components consisting of four items receives three 
    additions to achieve a total of nineteen as the game progresses. Additions to 
    inventory normally occur after the identical items have been made available for
    collection as spoils of battle with encountered enemies.
    
    All but five of the inorganic components sold by this Vendor can be obtained in
    quantity as "rare" spoils of battle with various "mechanical" fiends. However, 
    the fiend producing any given inorganic component may not always be available 
    for battle when convenient.
    
    
    
    
    [*05*] MAGICAL MOMENTS: The electronic pass for access of this Vendor appears 
    as a "spoil" of a story-line battle with a Feral Behemoth approximately three-
    quarters of the way through Chapter 5.
    
    Typically accessories are added to inventory only after one or more units have 
    otherwise been made available to the Player. In general, a few (1, 2 or 3) of 
    each of the listed accessories can be acquired from Treasure Spheres during 
    game play.
    
    The adjective "Critical" used in the "Usage" column refers to the fact that the
    capability indicated for the accessory only becomes active when the Hit Points 
    of a character having the accessory equipped are reduced to their critical 
    point level or less - and that only once per particular battle.
    
    
    
    
    [*06*] CREATURE COMFORTS: Access to this Vendor becomes available immediately 
    after the final story-line battle that occurs at the end of Chapter 5. Upon 
    conclusion of the battle, restored Player control allows movement forward to a 
    [Save] Station and use of the organic components available from this Vendor.
    
    Most of the components sold by this Vendor can be obtained in quantity as 
    "rare" spoils of battle with various fiends. However, the fiend producing any 
    given organic component may not always be available for battle when convenient.
    
    Customarily, a component will not appear in inventory until after opportunity 
    to collect units through battle with fiends that drop the component has been 
    presented by the game.
    
    
    
    
    [*07*] PLAUTUS'S WORKSHOP: This Vendor appears as a "spoil" of a final story-
    line battle that is inserted into an automatic sequence of scenes that define 
    the end of Chapter 7. Upon completion of the unavoidable battle, additional 
    scenes bring Chapter 7 to a conclusion and the story line moves on to begin 
    Chapter 8. Chapter 8 sees restored Player control and allowed use of a [Save] 
    Station to purchase the weapons then available from this Vendor.
    
    Each weapon available from this Vendor exhibits a "Special" element that 
    expands the battle-arena capability set over those of the basic weapons offered
    by the Up in Arms Vendor. These include individual features to extend physical 
    attack power, expand magical attack options and increase defensive strengths.
    
    Note that, most of the time, the weapon will not appear for sale in this store 
    until after the Treasure Sphere containing the weapon has been made available 
    for access by the Player. In every case one unit of each weapon sold can be 
    found in a Treasure Sphere during the game.
    
    
    
    
    [*08*] THE MOTHERLODE: This Vendor appears as a "spoil" of the first of two 
    story-line battles that occur at the end of a very short Chapter 8.
    
    The initial inventory list receives three updates as the game progresses to 
    realize the final set of seven items available for sale. Each of the items for 
    sale is a "Transformation Element" of the type needed to transform weapons 
    and/or accessories to their alternate forms as part of the Upgrade Process that
    can be used by the Player to improve their basic capabilities.
    
    Goods availability from alternate sources for the inventory items varies. 
    "Inexhaustible" sources appear for the first two items before the Vendor 
    appears. Alternate sources for the rest of the goods sold only appear after 
    their appearance in the Vendor inventory list.
    
    
    
    
    [*09*] MOOGLEWORKS: This Vendor appears as a "spoil" of a major story-line 
    battle that occurs two-thirds of the way through Chapter 10.
    
    Two of the inventory goods become available upon appearance of this Vendor. The
    next (final) two inventory items appear in Chapter 11.
    
    All goods displayed by this Vendor may be acquired in Chapter 11 either as 
    Treasure Sphere contents or as products received from completed optional and/or
    story-line actions.
    
    
    
    
    [*10*] R&D DEPOT: This Vendor can only be acquired as the "First Time" 
    Completion Bonus for finishing an "optional" Mission 7 side quest first 
    available in the Chapter 11 action area of Final Fantasy XIII. Completion can 
    be as Chapter 11 is first traveled or upon later return to the action area.
    
    All inventory items are immediately available for purchase when the electronic 
    pass for this Vendor is received.
    
    Goods sold by this Vendor have special application in the Upgrade process that 
    can be applied to increase Weapon and Accessory capabilities.
    
    Given dismantling sources are not to be considered; only three of the sold 
    goods can be obtained in quantity from alternate sources. 
    
    
    
    
    [*11*] GILGAMESH,Inc.: To obtain access, one must complete the Mission 46 side 
    quest first available as one proceeds along the story line of Chapter 11. The 
    Gilgamesh, Inc. Vendor access interface appears as the First Time Completion 
    Bonus for successful execution of the repeatable Mission 46 side quest.
    
    The side quest need not be completed at the first opportunity. As additional 
    game progression takes place, there will be later opportunity to return to the 
    Chapter 11 action arena to complete the side quest and thus acquire Gilgamesh, 
    Inc.
    
    This Vendor appears with its full complement of goods in place.
    
    The weapons available from this Vendor are generally more powerful than those 
    sold by other Vendors. However the increase in power comes at the price of the 
    weapon also having some sort of disadvantageous characteristic that the Player 
    must deal with during battle.
    
    At least one unit of each of the weapons sold by this Vendor can be obtained 
    from a Treasure Sphere or a "battle spoils" alternate source.
    
    
    
    
    [*12*] SANCTUM LABS: The opening sequence of events of Chapter 12 begins with a
    series of scenes interrupted by a battle demanding Player participation. Upon 
    conclusion of the unavoidable battle and completion of additional scenes, game 
    control is given to the Player with a [Save] Station available to use for 
    access to the "special" accessories sold by this Vendor.
    
    This Vendor appears with a complete inventory set available for immediate 
    purchase. The accessories offered are, in a vague sense, advanced versions of 
    certain accessories sold in other stores found in the game.
    
    A minimum of two units of each of the listed accessories are available by 
    completing various actions during game play. For the first two of the listed 
    items, four units will be available from alternate sources. Additional units, 
    if desired, require purchase from this store.
    
    
    
    
    [*13*] EDEN PHARMACEUTICALS: The battle granting the electronic pass for this 
    Vendor begins activities to conclude Chapter 12. First access to the goods sold
    is immediate after the battle ends and just before a possible Chapter 13 start.
    
    The four items sold by this store provide the Player with means for execution 
    of effective battle strategy against stronger opponents.
    
    This Vendor appears so late in the game that it seems likely that the aware 
    Player will have found satisfactory alternate means to collect any needed 
    Shroud items sold by this Vendor and/or to execute the Librascope function.
    
    
    
    
                                 [D] ALTERNATE SOURCES
    
    Most goods that can be obtained by purchase at the listed Vendors have 
    alternative sources which allow the Player to obtain them at no Gil cost. A 
    presentation of such alternate sources is the subject of this document section.
    
    Addressed source types include game Initialization actions, Treasure Spheres, 
    battle spoils and side quest "rewards". "Dismantling" actions that produce 
    goods of interest are not considered by the presentation.
    
    The following presentation conventions are used by the tabulations that follow.
    
    Each entry consists of the name of the good under consideration followed by a 
    brief description of the location of the source. Where necessary, the location 
    description is augmented by a parenthetical expression to add detail.
    
    If the source of a good is through Initialization, the word "Initialization" 
    appears in the location description of the corresponding Tabular entry.
    
    Next consider the possible tabular entries for a Treasure Sphere.
    
    A Treasure Sphere containing a single good has a basic description (e.g., 
    Potion - Chapter 1 - Aerorail Trussway 13-E). If the Treasure Sphere contains 
    more than one good, the number of goods contained in the Treasure Sphere is 
    added to the basic description as a numeric indicator enclosed in parentheses 
    (e.g., Potion - Chapter 1 - Aerorail Trussway 12-E (two)).
    
    Battle spoils entries are similar.
    
    If a battle can be repeated after a [Save] action that collects the spoils 
    received, the tabular entry has the form of a basic description followed by the
    "name" of the enemy that must be defeated to receive the good under 
    consideration (e.g., Potion - Chapter 3 - Encased in Crystal (PSICOM Tracker)).
    As "repeatable" battles may be fought over and over, no numeric indicator is 
    included as a part of the parenthetical description supplement. As many goods 
    as desired can be acquired by fighting the battle repeatedly.
    
    If a battle can not be repeated after a [Save] action that collects the spoils 
    received, a tabular entry will appear only if the outcome of the battle is 
    always the same. For such battles, the entry has the same form as the 
    "repeatable" battle description but with a numeric indicator included as a part
    of the parenthetical description supplement (e.g., Potion - Chapter 1 - 
    Aerorail Trussway 6-W (Beta Behemoth - five)). Observe that "not repeatable" 
    battles with spoils governed solely by chance are not sources displayed by the 
    tabular listings.
    
    Chapter 11 side quest reward alternate sources (64 Missions, repair of Bhakti 
    the robot, Chocobo Treasure Hunt) can be significant. They will be identified 
    in the presentation. The same basic entry types will be used for their display 
    with the parenthetical description supplement suitably modified to include 
    specific indicators for those sources.
    
    That alternate sources are available is only part of the story. The timing 
    associated with that availability is also a significant factor for 
    consideration.
    
    Ten of the thirteen Final Fantasy XIII Chapters are "one time" events. That is,
    once the Chapter has been completed, return to play through its activities 
    another time is not permitted in the game. Two of the remaining three Chapters 
    are "partly" repeatable while the remaining Chapter is "totally" repeatable.
    
    Within that structure, organization within the Chapters also impacts alternate 
    source availability. Each Chapter can be considered to be composed of multiple 
    "segments" with a segment defined by a "boundary" at its beginning and a second
    "boundary" at its end. "Boundaries" customarily occur near a [Save] Station 
    location or when a story-line "cut scene" event occurs.
    
    Source availability may be impacted by internal restrictions in a Chapter. A 
    Chapter may be open end-to-end with all "segments" repeatable or, one or more 
    "segments" may be non-repeatable in the end-to-end sense to establish separate 
    "compartments" of play within a Chapter.
    
    Chapters 1, 2, 4, 7, 9 are "compartmented" and may be played only once each 
    game. Usually sources lying within these Chapters must be addressed when play 
    is in the associated compartment for they quite likely will not be available 
    otherwise. 
    
    Chapters 3, 5, 6, 8 and 10 are open "end-to-end"; there are no internal 
    barriers to restrict travel for play between the chapter starting point and the
    "end-of-chapter" battle sequence. These chapters, once completed may not be 
    played over but, until completed, free access to all alternate sources is 
    always possible.
    
    Chapters 11, 12 and 13 have "special" structures.
    
    Chapter 11 is unique within Final Fantasy XIII. It is without internal story-
    line barriers of the types just described and its parts may be visited as many 
    times as desired. Thus, once its "puzzles" have been solved, all alternate 
    sources there will always be available.
    
    "Replayable" Chapter 12 is divided into two "compartments". The initial segment
    of the Chapter is a one-time-only compartment separated from the several 
    segments that define the open "end-to-end" remainder of the Chapter. The open 
    "end-to-end" part of Chapter 12 may be re entered for replay at Player choice 
    after an initial "story-line-completion" Chapter 12 play through.
    
    Chapter 13 has "creatively presented" segments and multiple compartments. Some 
    internal segments are "interconnected" and can be played multiple times during 
    the story-line progression of the Chapter upon Player choice. Upon completion 
    of story-line actions in Chapter 13, replay access remains available but is 
    limited to two "important" segments of the Chapter 13 story-line pathway only.
    
    
    
    
                                  [*01*] UNICORN MART
    
    Goods available from this Vendor seem less important as the game progresses. 
    Equivalent capability can be realized by use of accessories that become 
    available and through exercise of magical techniques gained through character 
    development.
    
    The complete inventory for Unicorn Mart features seven items.
    
    Three item types can only be acquired by purchase from this Vendor. The other 
    four item types can be found in limited quantity in Treasure Spheres. Two of 
    these four can be obtained in "unlimited" quantity as spoils received in 
    repeatable battles.
    
    Remember that the non-repeatable battles of Chapter 1 involving PSICOM Warden, 
    PSICOM Enforcer, and PSICOM Aerial Sniper enemies may yield Potions and/or 
    Phoenix Down items as spoils in limited quantity but their unpredictable 
    appearance has produced the decision to omit them from the list display.

                                 [*02*] B&W OUTFITTERS
    
    Goods available from this Vendor are used to augment character offensive and 
    defensive capabilities. As can be seen from the sources listing, at least one 
    copy of all but two of the goods can be obtained from alternate sources. 
    Additionally, other goods of the same or similar types with additional 
    capability will be found as the game is played.
    
    Twenty-eight accessory unit types comprise the inventory of goods available 
    from this Vendor.
    
    The first six accessory types, if equipped, increase the maximum Hit Point 
    statistic for a character. A feature of this set is that the capability 
    increase grows larger as one moves down the list.
    
    The second six accessory types, if equipped, increase the physical and magical 
    offensive power for a character. Capability increase within each three element 
    accessory class is a characteristic as one scans down the list.
    
    The following four accessories augment the physical and magical defensive 
    capability for a character when equipped. The second entry for each of the two 
    accessory types has improved capability over that exhibited by the first.
    
    The final twelve accessories, when equipped, provide augmented defensive 
    capability against various specific types of enemy "status" attacks.

                                   [*03*] UP IN ARMS
    
    This Vendor is an "arms" dealer. Weapons sold appear to show a characteristic 
    of "Strength Emphasis", "Magic Emphasis" or "Balanced Attack Emphasis".
    
    One unit of each of the goods sold can be obtained from an alternate source as 
    the game is played. Five of the goods are "presented" to the Player as each 
    playable character enters the game. A single unit of each of the other nine can
    be found in Treasure Spheres. Thus, for complete coverage of this Vendor's 
    inventory, all that needs to be done is to be observant during play so that no 
    Treasure Sphere contents are missed.
    
    Unless a Treasure Sphere is missed, there would appear to be little need for 
    making any purchase from this Vendor.

                                [*04*] LENORA'S GARAGE
    
    This Vendor is one of four that have goods for sale in support of the Final 
    Fantasy XIII Upgrade Process. The goods offered are subset of the totality of 
    possible "inorganic" good types that can be collected in the game.
    
    The role of the "inorganic" components offered is to allow the Player to 
    accumulate "Experience Points" as necessary to upgrade accessories and weapons.
    As shown by the sources list, four of the nineteen components are only 
    available by purchase. The other offered components can be collected from 
    alternate sources shown (although source access is usually restricted to be 
    within certain action areas traveled during play).
    
    Fourteen of the listed goods can be acquired as "rare" drops in battles from 
    the fiend sources indicated in the list. Starting with Chapter 10, component 
    collection from battle spoils sources may be improved by use of a "Catalog" 
    accessory.
    
    A decision to purchase from this Vendor may involve recognition of funds 
    availability, complexity of collection action alternatives, consideration of 
    the use of alternative components, and needed timing of upgrade actions.

    This Vendor is one of four that have goods for sale in support of the Final 
    Fantasy XIII Upgrade Process. The goods offered are subset of the totality of 
    possible "organic" good types that can be collected in the game.
    
    The primary role of the "organic" components offered is to allow the Player to 
    maximize the effect of "inorganic" components used accumulate "Experience 
    Points" as necessary to upgrade accessories and weapons. Use of "organic" 
    components prior to use of "inorganic" components can make the "inorganic" 
    component "Experience Point" contribution up to three times that of the base 
    value.  The "organic" components used also act to add to the Experience Point 
    accumulation needed to improve the capability of equipment via the Upgrade 
    Process.
    
    As shown by the sources list, two of the twenty components are available in 
    quantity only by purchase. The other offered components can be collected from 
    alternate sources shown (although source access is usually restricted to be 
    within certain action areas traveled during play).
    
    Eighteen of the listed goods can be acquired as "rare" drops in battles from 
    the fiend sources indicated in the list. Starting with Chapter 10, the player 
    will have the option of improving component collection from battle spoils 
    sources by making use of a "Catalog" accessory.
    
    A decision to purchase from this Vendor may involve recognition of funds 
    availability, complexity of collection action alternatives, consideration of 
    the use of alternative components, and needed timing of upgrade actions.

                               [*07*] PLAUTUS'S WORKSHOP
    
    One unit of each of the eighteen weapons sold by this Vendor can be obtained at
    no charge as the game is played.
    
    One of the weapons is "presented" to the Player as a playable character enters 
    the game. A single unit of each of the other seventeen weapons can be found in 
    Treasure Spheres. Thus, for complete coverage of this Vendor's inventory, all 
    that needs to be done is to be observant during play so that no Treasure Sphere
    contents are missed.
    
    Therefore, if a Player searches each area passed through carefully as the game 
    is played, there may not be any need for making a purchase from this Vendor.

                                 [*08*] THE MOTHERLODE
    
    This Vendor is the "always available" source for seven of the ten 
    Transformation Elements used by the Finally Fantasy XIII Upgrade Process. The 
    remaining three Transformation Elements can be acquired from the R&D Depot 
    Vendor, or, in two instances, from alternate sources.
    
    It is perhaps fortunate that at least a few of all of the goods sold can be 
    obtained at no cost by other means. Treasure Spheres and side quest activities 
    can provide limited quantities of each of the elements displayed. Five of the 
    Seven Elements can be obtained in quantity as "rare" "Spoils" from battles with
    fiends. The game provides 7 Uraninite and 5 Mnar Stone components at "no cost".
    
    Units of the first two Transformation Elements can be acquired as battle spoils
    before they become available for purchase from this Vendor. Battle spoil units 
    for the remaining three Elements having that alternative as a source do not 
    become available until after the corresponding inventory entries appear.
    
    Careful planning and a little bit of collection perseverance when the 
    opportunity to collect an "unlimited" number of Transformation Elements when 
    the opportunity presents itself may significantly impact the necessity for 
    purchases to be made from this Vendor.
    
    Generally, the decision to purchase will likely involve recognition of the 
    number and type of goods available in a Player's inventory, the amount of funds
    that may become available, the feasibility of Element collection from battle 
    and/or side quest actions, and the required timing of needed upgrade actions.

                                  [*09*] MOOGLEWORKS
    
    Goods sold by this Vendor comprise four "specialty" accessories. Three have 
    capabilities that support more efficient execution of battle actions. One, the 
    third listed, can be used to improve the quantity of spoils received as a 
    result of battle completions.
    
    Depending upon how a Player chooses to play the game, there may or may not be 
    any need to make purchases from this Vendor. As shown by the sources display, 
    all accessory types will become available from alternate sources in Chapter 11.
    
    A unit of the first of the four accessories offered appears in Chapter 9; 
    before it appears in the shop inventory in Chapter 10. Thus the Player has an 
    opportunity to try out that accessory before a purchase decision is made. The 
    third listed unit appears in inventory in Chapter 10 but comes with a rather 
    high price tag. The remaining two units do not appear in inventory until 
    Chapter 11 when alternate sources for all units are available.

                                   [*10*] R&D DEPOT
    
    This Vendor is the "always available" source for six "high quality" components 
    useful in the Final Fantasy XIII Upgrade Process.
    
    The first inventory entry is for an "organic" component useful for producing 
    the Experience Point "Bonus" state during equipment upgrades. The next two 
    inventory entries are for "inorganic" components that add significant numbers 
    of Experience Points during efforts to improve equipment capability. The final 
    three inventory items are Transformation Elements used to convert equipment of 
    one type to another as the Upgrade Process is executed.
    
    One Transformation Element is only available by purchase from this Vendor; also
    the single "organic" component and one of the two "inorganic" components sold 
    are available in quantity only by purchase. The other inventory items have 
    alternate sources.
    
    Additionally, for the inventory items that are not a Transformation Element, 
    alternate "organic" and "inorganic" components can be collected from many 
    different fiends and applied to accomplish the same ends as the components sold
    by this Vendor. Examples include the use of "Chocobo Plume" organic components
    in place of the "Green Needle" inventory item and the use of the "Bomb Core" 
    inorganic component as a replacement for the "Particle Accelerator".
    
    Acquiring units identical to those sold from alternate sources can be difficult
    and time consuming. Purchase of inventory items from this Vendor will require 
    significant amounts of Gil. A review of such factors will be involved in making
    a decision to purchase or collect replacement goods as substitutes for use.
    
    
    Green Needle         - No units available from considered alternate sources.

                                 [*11*] GILGAMESH,Inc.
    
    This Vendor offers sixteen different weapons as goods for sale. Ten of the 
    weapons can be found in Treasure spheres as the game is played. Six of the 
    weapons can be obtained as battle spoils from some "inexhaustible" source.
    
    A Player would be wise to be thorough in the exploration of areas containing 
    Treasure Spheres as the game progresses. One could expend a significant amount 
    of Gil purchasing weapons from this Vendor to replace those not collected as 
    Treasure Sphere contents.
    
    On the other hand, the weapons to be found in Treasure Spheres are "cheap" when
    their purchase price is compared to the prices of the more expensive weapons 
    that are available from this Vendor. It is perhaps fortunate that alternate 
    sources also exist for each of the expensive weapons offered by this Vendor.
    
    A capable, determined player can choose to obtain at least one unit of all 
    weapons sold by this Vendor from alternate sources.

    This Vendor sells three "High Capability" accessories that can be used to 
    improve the defensive characteristics of a Player's battle party.
    
    Fortunately, limited quantities of each are available from alternate sources. 
    This allows a Player to evaluate their usefulness prior to making a decision to
    commit a significant amount of Gil to buy additional units of any of them.

    This Vendor sells goods that relate to the execution of most efficient possible
    battle strategies.
    
    It is not clear that purchase of goods from this Vendor is necessary as all 
    capabilities offered by purchase of goods sold by this store can be otherwise 
    acquired.
    
    Use of the Libra Technique available by exercise of battle menu options during 
    a battle can be used as substitute for using a Librascope. The use of the Libra
    Technique during a battle will reveal the same enemy information produced by 
    pre-battle use of a Librascope. Also, there is a "Kill: Libra" accessory that, 
    if equipped, causes a piece of information about an enemy to be revealed each 
    time it is defeated. Therefore, over multiple battles with the same enemy, it 
    can cause execution of the Libra function.
    
    With patience and persistence, Shrouds of all types (Aegisol, Deceptisol and 
    Fortisol) can be collected as "occasional" battle spoils at almost any point in
    the game. Consult any posted guide covering "Shroud Collection" for details.

                                   [E] SOURCES OF GIL
    
    There are two sources for the Gil needed to purchase goods from the Final 
    Fantasy XIII Vendors: a total of 51,503 Gil can be recovered as the contents of
    Treasure Spheres to be found scattered about throughout the game; Gil may be 
    also obtained by selling goods collected during the course of game play.
    
    This document section has as it purpose the presentation of a selection of 
    useful sources of Gil for Player consideration. It will present a complete list
    of the locations of the Treasure Sphere sources and the amount of Gil to be 
    found in each. It will provide per item selling prices and location information
    for Vendor and Non Vendor goods sources (Treasure Spheres, single unit recovery
    actions and "inexhaustible" suppliers) chosen by the author as being of 
    potential use to those interested in collecting "significant" amounts of Gil.
    
    The Gil sources list is intended to present a "starter" set of collection 
    opportunities. Components may be sold for Gil or used in the upgrade process. 
    Acquired equipment may be sold or upgraded and sold at a higher price.
    (When selling equipment, it will be wise to be sure that one unit of each 
    equipment type is always available to the Datalog inventory file.) The typical 
    Player will likely wish to consider such options together with other actions to
    develop a Gil collection strategy suitable to a preferred style of play.
    
    Excess components contained in inventory can be sold for Gil. Indeed, since the
    maximum number of units that may be accumulated in inventory at one time is 99,
    the Player may wish to review component inventory levels upon occasion to make
    sales necessary to be sure those component accumulations remain under their 
    maximum limit (so as to accumulate Gil from opportunities that otherwise would 
    be lost). Generally, there seems to be little advantage to be gained by selling
    components. There is no known situation where it is possible to accumulate 
    additional Gil by sale of components to purchase other components for resale. 
    Sale of one component to purchase other components to produce a more efficient 
    equipment upgrade process seems not to be a particularly useful option.
    
    The source location description conventions introduced in Section [D] apply to 
    the slightly modified version of the prior source location list entries that 
    follow. Remember that a "plain" location description is used to denote a 
    Treasure Sphere recovery opportunity. A location description including a non-
    numeric parenthetical descriptor indicates an "unlimited" source with access 
    gained by completing the action denoted by the parenthetical expression.
