    6 - DARK ASSEMBLY AND TRANSMIGRATION
    ====================================

    Q : Is there a fixed number of Senators in the Dark Assembly?
    A :
    Yes, but those who actually appear when you try to pass a bill are
    semi-randomly chosen amongst all of them. The "semi" part comes from the fact
    that the average level of the Senators who are chosen is based upon the Rank
    of the character who makes the proposal.

    ==============

    Q : I don't understand that bribing/liking stuff !
    A :
    1. Every senator has a Rarity it likes. An item with that Rarity will always
    be "Must-have" for that senator, no matter what item it is. An item with
    another Rarity will see its "wantedness" decrease based on the distance
    between its own Rarity and the "Must-have" Rarity.

    2. The "liking-ness" is NOT shared between your characters. For instance, if
    you bribe a Senator with Laharl, that Senator will NOT like Etna's proposals
    more.

    3. Bribery carries over from one session to the other. That means you can
    bribe the senators over and over until the all love you. Warning, though : no
    matter how much a senator likes a character, if that senator is killed during
    a "Pass by force" session, it will switch to "Loathe".

    ==============

    Q : i got more "Yeah" than "Nay" but the bill is rejected !
    A :
    Every bill has a handicap equivalent to its Mana cost. To win a proposal,
    you need to get YAY >= (NAY + cost)

    ==============

    Q : I can't choose <insert bill name> in the Dark Assembly !
    A :
    All bills require that the total influence of the Senators for that vote
    session is at least equal to the Mana cost of the proposal.
    Also, many of them require that the character who tries to pass them is at
    least Rank XX at the Dark Assembly.
    Finally, some of the bonus area proposals require that you're at least at
    Episode YY.

    (XX and YY depend on the proposal)

    Q : I'm at lv XXX. Should I transmigrate ?
    A :
    It's up to you, but I think transmigration is useless before lv 150-200.
    And even then, you shouldn't transmigrate if you don't have a quick way to
    get back to the level you were before transmigrating.

    ==============

    Q : Which enemies are affected by the "Raise/Lower enemy level" bill ?
    A : All enemies except the those in the Dark Assembly.

    ==============

    Q : How does the "Triple Exp" bill work ?
    A :
    In the next battle, the character OR ENEMY who gets the first kill gains 3x
    the normal amount of Exp.

    ==============

    Q : How does the "Prinny Day" bill work ?
    A :
    In the next battle, the Bonus Gauge contains only items but you can only use
    Prinnies to fight.

    ==============

    Q : What's transmigration ?
    A : RTFM !

    ==============

    Q : Why do people say that I should always transmigrate at Genius ?
    A :
    Because they know what's good for you. ;)
    Seriously, it's because doing so
    1) gives you more bonus points
    2) enables you to keep 95% of your previous spell mastery and weapon mastery

    ==============

    Q : Is it better to create a new character from scratch or to transmigrate ?
    A :
    Transmigrate because
    1) You don't need Assembly Approval
    2) You keep some of the abilities you had previously
    3) You store some levels for your next transmigration

    ==============

    Q : What is that "level storage" thing ?
    A :
    Each time a character transmigrates, his/her current level is added to a
    grand total. Next time s/he transmigrates, that grand total is used to
    determine how many bonus points s/he gets. The cap for this grand total is
    around 185,000.
