   of getting a true walkthrough up, so look for that soon.

        SECTION 3: STORY
  ---'''----------------'''---
   Due to the fact I can not read fluent japanese, it will take me a
   while to get this section up. If you can help, please e-mail me
   at kmfdm@technonet.com! :)

  ---,,,-------------------------,,,---
        SECTION 4: BASICS OF PLAY
  ---'''-------------------------'''---
   Here I will quickly run down the basics of play, like the battle
   system, etc.

    LANDMAKE SYSTEM
    ===============
    The landmake system is really cool. It actually allows you to place
    dungeons and towns where you want to! To do so, you first collect
    special items called "Artifacts" that then create a certain structure
    such as a town, a cave, etc. You know when you get a new artifact
    whenever a little box pops up that says "AF: [artifact name]" in it.

    THE BATTLE SYSTEM
    =================
    The battle system in this game is very similar to Seiken Densetsu 3,
    so those of you who have played it should have little trouble getting
    used to the new system.

    First off the battle controls are as follows:
       Circle - Quick Attack
       Triangle - Power Attack
       X - Ability 1
       Square - Ability 2
       R1 - Skill or Magic 1
       R2 - Skill or Magic 2
       L1 - Skill or Magic 3
       L2 - Skill or Magic 4

    Before battle you assign up to two abilities such as jump, dash,
    counter, and more to the "X" and "Square" buttons. You also assign
    special attacks to the top buttons(not the exact same, but similar
    in idea to the Tales of Destiny skill system). During battle you
    can use the two standard attacks(Circle and Triangle) as much as
    you want. Circle is faster but does less damage, and Triangle does
    more damage but has a long recovery time. The two abilities can
    also be used as much as you want. Skills, however, can not be used
    whenever. In order to be able to use a skill you must first build
    up the bar beneath your life, which is done by attacking an enemy.
    When the bar is up, just press the button and you use that skill!

    Also, this game has a great feature. If you die you don't need any
    item to bring you back, your character will simply gain back life
    over time till he/she wakes back up. Unfourtunatly your other
    character(s) can not die before you do, or else you lose(I assume).

  ---,,,--------------------------,,,---
        SECTION 5: GETTING STARTED
  ---'''--------------------------'''---
   When you first start a game you have a number of choices to make,
   the first of which is the sex of your main character. The left
   picture is male, the right picture female. I am currently unaware
   if this makes a difference in the course of the game being I have
   not had time to play through as either, much less both, sexes yet.

   The second choice you make is your weapon. In order the list is:
        Short Sword
        One-Handed Sword
        One-Handed Axe
        Large Sword
        Battle Axe
        Battle Hammer
        Spear
        Rod
        Glove
        Tanchuck(a.k.a. Nunchucks)
        Bow

   Following your weapon, you get to choose your name(obviously).
   Most people will want to use the english character set which is
   represented on the left by the "A"(again, obviously).

   Next you choose the "Play Area". I am not really sure what effect
   this has on the game, so just choose any area you want for now. I
   will try to get more info on this in the upcoming versions of this
   FAQ.

   Now it is time to place the "Post" artifact which turns into your
   house(called "My Home"). Simply choose a location to place it in
   the "Play Area" you choose. After it is created simply enter it
   with the Circle button to see the opening movie role! :)
   
   And fear not, a true walkthrough is coming soon, this is just to
   help people get started in this great game while I am working on
   the walkthrough!

        SECTION 6: MENU TRANSLATIONS
  ---'''----------------------------'''---

    STORE TRANSLATIONS
    ==================
      Buy
      Sell
      Cancel

   Yeah, I know this isn't very much, but I am going to get every
   single thing I can up as soon as possible.
