    [1.  Introduction]
    What are Quest Magnus?
    Magnus are blank cards used in Baten Kaitos.  After you obtain your first set
    of Quest Magnus, you can trap the essence of an item by examining it, ranging
    from apples to secrets to water.
    Some people or objects will want/need a Quest Magnus.  When you talk to the
    right person or examine the right object, the Quest Magnus menu will appear.
    Using the C Stick, scroll through your Quest Magnus until you find the one
    needed for the task.
    Sometimes you’ll want to throw away a Quest Magnus.  Go to menu, go to Quest
    Magnus, then press A on the one you desire to discard.
    Some Quest Magnus are endowed with the ability to change over time.  See the
    list of Changing Magnus for more information.

    [4.  Sidequests]
    [a.  Calbren’s Museum]
    After the five sidequests open up late in the game, go to Calbren’s Manor and
    go into the museum.  Talk to the old man there and he will set up four stands.
    Put these four items on the stands:
    -Thunderfish Bone:  Found on the Lesser Celestial River.
    -Adventure Novel:  Found in Mizuti’s house in Gemma Village, in a dresser.
    -Gold Pick Axe:  Reenter the Tower of DRUAGA and kill each of the Slimes to
    make the Gold Pick Axe reappear.

    For your efforts you’ll receive Mizuti’s strongest equipment, the Broken Birdie.
    [b.  Azha Kids]
    One of the first things you’re likely to notice in Azha is that there’s three
    kids you trail behind you and ask for stuff.  The one that says she’s starving
    wants Boiled Eggs, but the other two will take any Magnus you’ll give them.
    Trap as many Rock Salt/Lava/Sparkling Snow as you can and give it to them.
    After giving 13 Magnus to the kids, talk to a nearby man for a  Mephistophes
    Cloak.  Give a total of 21 Magnus to the kids and he’ll give you a Secret
    Recipe 7.
    Do note that once the Nihal Desert sidequest is available, you cannot do this
    sidequest, and both items obtained are one-of-a-kind.
    [c.  Field Trip]
    Near the same time the Museum sidequest is available, a bunch of children will
    be visiting the Manor.  Go into one of the upstairs rooms and exit to see that
    the children are wreaking havoc.  Four of them want certain things:
    -Picture Book:  Found in the pink room of the Imperial Fortress.
    -Pow Milk:  Examine a barrel in Cebalrai’s stable.
    -Roasted Bird:  Roast a Dead Bluebird in Trill’s oven.
    -Snow:  Everywhere on the Ice Cliffs of Gomeisa.
    Once you have given each what they want, exit the room, reenter, and talk to
    the maid for Firedrake Fists.
