    1. Introduction
    ****************
    I started working on this guide on 3-27-2006. 
    It seems that there is a great need for direction
    as far as this installment of Suikoden is concerned
    as there are multiple runes, changes in the way 
    you obtain them, and often times, multiple ways 
    to get the runes or rune pieces you are looking 
    for. I will try to list and guide you, the best I can
    so you may obtain every piece you are 
    determined to find. Please keep in mind however
    that you may obtain some of these items or runes
    at points not listed in this faqs, such as from War
    battles or in unknown enemy encounters, as I 
    don't claim to have found all pieces in the game
    at this point, I just compiled my notes and 
    corrected a few places that were inaccurate in 
    finds. Alot of the drop percentages were 
    obtained both with the help of the Brady Games
    Strategy Guide, and also my own playing 
    experience. 
    
    Obviously, to increase your chances 
    for obtaining treasure after battle, or from enemy 
    drops, put someone with a good support skill in, 
    such as Babbage. Zwieg, Bergen and Lorelai also 
    work well and can participate in battle. One thing 
    also on the percentages. It has come to my attention 
    that although the guide states that these are the correct 
    drop percentages,the boss battles almost ALWAYS 
    give you full or 100% drops. Speaking with several 
    people on the boards, this seems to be the current 
    consensus. Take it for what it is worth, I guess
    and don't base too much concern on the 
    percentages. If you fight those random monsters 
    and have the right skills equipped, you almost 
    always come away with what you were looking 
    for. With that said, let the faqs
    begin!
