If you are new to the world of Rebirth and you don't read anything else,
I urge you to check out the Battle Basics under the Gameplay Mechanics
section. It'll save you a lot of heartache later, trust me.

PSP versions, finalized the Earning Grade section (I think, anyway), added
Skills and Ougis for Eugene (woohoo, finally finished another section! ^^),

was going on with Part 2 of the Moving Library SE), added two new subsections
to the Enhance/Inherit section and filled them in

Version 1.33 (4-4-2008) Deleted the Skits section since these are going to be
included in my other guide from now on, made an important correction to Annie's
Skill Rise Elixir, updated the Frequently Asked Questions section a bit,
updated the About The Game section, Added the Differences between the PS2 and
PSP versions section, Updated the How to use this guide section, updated the

incorrect Kanji reading, apparently), changed the wording about RG slightly,
added link to the solution for the fourth and final word puzzle (VICTORY AT
LAST!!!), put down the layout for Hilda's Skills (the little kids were poking
me at the hospital, so I didn't get to finish...but I managed to update on

1) About the game                                                    [ABO000]
===============================================================================
Tales of Rebirth (PS2) was released in Japan on December 16, 2004 as the
sixth installment of the main "Tales of" series by Namco Bandai (or Bamco,
as I like to call them). While the game contains many features which are
staple for the series (e.g. cooking, skits, Grade), Rebirth also has its
own share of quirks (e.g. Enhancement, the Force Cube, super-obsessive
male protagonists). The game carries a heavy theme of racism so if you're
one of those sensitive people, think happy thoughts and don't chuck
anything at me or the TV.

A PRP port with some smallish extras was released in Japan on March 19th, 2008,
but no word on an English localization thus far. There is more information
about the PSP release in the fourth section of this FAQ and in the Frequently
Asked Questions Section. In the meantime (or in the worst case scenario), you
have two options in terms of a translation. There's Spekio's FAQ located here
on GameFAQs, which I would highly recommend reading unless you have a fear of
very large text files (it's a couple hundred pages I think).

The other option is me...or rather, my work; I am currently subbing the main
storyline of Rebirth (including the skits) and putting them up on Youtube. The
translation that I'm using for my videos is a mix between Spekio's FAQ and my
own interpretation of the text, so some of the terminology and such will
obviously differ. Anyway, if you want to take a look, the link to my Youtube
channel is at the top of the FAQ. I'm also in the process of typing up the
script that I used for my videos (what I've completed of the script is up on
GameFAQs right now, BTW...it's listed under the ToR PSP guides), but it's
gonna take me a while to catch up to where I am with the videos, so bear with
me here. As for the change of heart about typing up the script...it actually
had more to do with the fact that I got some new software which sped up the
process significantly. Anyway, because I'm evil, I'll be referencing my videos
quite a bit in this FAQ but more on that in a second.

===============================================================================
2) How to use this guide                                             [HOW000]
===============================================================================
To start things off, I guess I should mention that this is my first written
FAQ ev...wait, come back! Yeesh, let me finish already, will ya? *ahem* Yep,
this would be my first one, so I apologize if it looks like I have
absolutely no idea what I'm doing. Comforting thought, huh?

Anyway, this guide is intended to be used as a supplement to the other
Rebirth FAQs. Essentially, I'm trying to cover material that hasn't been
covered in other guides; also, if there is an option on the main menu that
isn't self-explanatory for most RPG players out there (e.g. Skills, Enhance,
etc.), then it will likely have a section in this FAQ. For the stuff that has
been sufficiently covered elsewhere, I'll make things really simple: I'm
either going to tell you to read someone else's FAQ and/or direct you to one
of my tutorial videos. Why? Because I'm lazy like that. And sometimes it's
easier for me to show you something rather than to explain it with words,
especially with the battle system.

In light of the recent PSP release, I have tried to make this guide as
applicable for both versions of the game as possible; ToR PSP is a port, not
a remake, so many of the same concepts that drive the battle system will apply
to both versions of the game. I will make note of any differences when
necessary though.

Also, I'll try to make this guide as accessible as possible for those
of you who don't speak a lick of Japanese, but in general I would recommend
that you at least know Katakana just in terms of being able to play the
game. Knowledge of Hiragana and basic recognition of Kanji are even better.
And if you happen to be fluent...wait, why the heck are you reading this
anyway?

Finally, feel free to send me any questions/corrections/suggestions that
you have about this guide; the email addy is at the top of the FAQ. Please
please please do not ask me to translate a whole bunch of crap for you...I'm
not an online dictionary and thus should not be used as such. If you ask me
a question and it's already been addressed here or elsewhere, don't be too
offended when I redirect you. And do type in "standard" English...that way,
the spam filter is less likely to catch it and I'll be able to give you a
better response. By the way, that isn't my regular email address, so don't
bite my head off if I don't respond within literally 10 minutes of receiving
your message (believe it or not, this has happened on several occasions).

===============================================================================
3) Frequently Asked Questions                                        [FAQ000]
===============================================================================
Some of these I've actually been asked, but the rest of them are the result of
my paranoia. Be glad that the list is as short as it is.

Q: Will you be adding a ______ section to this guide?
A: Honestly, it depends on a couple of things. If it's something that I feel
has been covered sufficiently in another FAQ and I don't have anything to add
to it, then the chances are pretty much next to nil. Because, well, it would
be pointless, right? Also, I like to feel like I'm actually getting something
accomplished, so I probably won't add any more sections until I make some
decent progress on the ones that I have yet to complete (e.g. the Sub Events
section). I've thought about adding a section for the mini-games and Cyglorg's
Chambers (the optional dungeon that looks like a ransacked Toys 'R' Us). But
don't be shy and free feel to send me suggestions, although I make no
guarantees or anything. I'm usually nice...except for when I'm not, of course.

Q: How often are you going to update this thing anyway?
A: I, uh, was aiming for at least once a week, but looks like I already messed
that one up. Anyway, I try to make the updates worthwhile, so I'm not going to
submit a revision just for the sake of having one. If it's been more than a
month though, it probably means that a soccer mom driving a full-size SUV
ran me over while she was trying to use her cell phone, spank her kids in the
back seat, and drink her Starbucks at the same time. Truth or sarcasm? You
decide.

Q: Does the Grade that you spend at the Grade Shop get refunded during your
next playthrough like it does in Tales of Symphonia?
A: I've been seeing this one quite a bit lately, so here's the answer: no, it
doesn't. However, the Grade that you don't spend DOES carry over. To be
honest, if you purchase the option that doubles your Grade and you play
halfway decently, you should be able to buy everything worth getting when you
finish your second playthrough anyway.

Q: So what's this Dramatic Peach Pie DVD thing I keep hearing about?
A: It's the pre-order bonus that was supposed to come with the PSP port of
Rebirth that Play-asia decided not to give to me. No, I'm not bitter or
ANYTHING. *ahem* Anyway, it contains a cute little scene with Veigue, Eugene,
Mao, Tytree, Milhaust, and even a cameo-ish appearance by Saleh. There's also
a new trailer for Tales of Vesperia, a recipe for how to make a peach pie, and
some other stuff I'm forgetting about at the moment. Thorough is my middle
name, I tell ya. Anyway, more details pending once I get my grubby hands on a
copy. As for where you can find a subbed version of the Peach Pie DVD...ptilol
and I are currently working something out. ^^

Q: Do you know where ______ is on the World Map? I can't find it!
A: Fear not, zer83, our resident ToR Map Man, has an answer for you all!
Thanks again for letting me steal your find, zer83! ^^ Note that zer83 nor
I am responsible for the creation of the map, but zer83 did type up all the
locations and such for us.

Q: You're too slow! Where can I go if I need answers now?
A: First off, I would check out the other Tales of Rebirth FAQs here on
GameFAQs (or wherever). Most of them are very helpful and I purposely try not
to have too much overlap with them, so chances are you'll see something that
you won't find in this guide.

If you've done that already and you want a "personal" answer, a good place to
start (and probably the best place to ask) is the Tales of Rebirth PSP
Message Board on GameFAQs. Note that you can also ask on the ToR PS2 board, but
it appears that most of the traffic has migrated to the PSP board ever since
the PSP port was released.

You can also try asking the question in the ToR PS2/PSP Discussion/Speculation
Thread over on the Namco Tales Forums. DO READ THE FORUM RULES first though;
while we all have to start somewhere, it is quite annoying to see a bunch of
newbies creating threads with headers like "OMG! I dunt no waht FG and RG
r!!!11111" and you might get a rather hostile welcome that way. Keep in mind
that there are a significant number of people who post in the ToR thread who
have never played the game, so don't feel offended if someone doesn't know the
answer or whatever.

Lastly, you can try emailing the authors of the FAQs, although I've had
lukewarm success with this personally. Rebirth did originally come out in 2004,
so many of the FAQ writers have surely moved on to bigger and better things.
Except for me since I'm in denial but that's a whole different story.

Q: Did you really pull off all of those Duel the Sun extensions by yourself?
A: Yes, I did. I lost a couple clumps of hair, but that's okay because there
are probably a couple of other people who share my baldness...you know who
you are.  =P

Q: Any other bits of wisdom that you'd like to share with the world?
A: Ooh, I get to talk about random stuff? ^^ Okay, brace yourselves then!

-If you die and you auto-cook at the end of battle (i.e. that green bar pops
up), you'll be brought back to life for free. Normally you stay dead after the
fight, so you have to use a Life Bottle or sleep at the inn in order to revive
them.

-MAKE SURE TO LEAVE SOME SPACE IN YOUR INVENTORY before major boss fights and
while you're doing Sub Events! You can lose some very nice accessories such as
the Distortion Orb and Veigue's talismans this way. Whatever it is, just be
certain that you have enough room to carry it because for some silly reason,
the game doesn't warn you that you're out of space (this mostly is a problem
with the jewels and your accessories). Valuable items have their own little
alloted space though, so you don't have to worry about them at least.

-You know how enemies sometimes make Circles that are similar to Annie's? Well,
they work in the same way except that they usually lower your status instead of
boosting the status of the enemies. Some of them can also inflict status
ailments, so you may want to be careful before you just charge into one.

-Ever notice how some save points are white and some are sort of a reddish
color? You can actually rest at the reddish color ones, so take advantage of
them when they're around.

4) Differences between the PS2 and PSP versions                       [DIF000]
===============================================================================
I'm going to attempt to compile most of the major differences between the two
versions of Rebirth here. Some of this is going to be personal observation, but
a lot of it will be taken from stuff that I'm reading from the boards and info
that was mentioned prior to the game's release. I'll do my best to verify what
I can, but keep in mind that I am currently subbing the PS2 version and that
takes priority for me.

Speaking of which, let me mention stuff that DIDN'T change. As far as I've
heard and can tell, no changes were made to the actual battle system (except
for the reconfiguration of some of the buttons, obviously). The storyline, for
better or worse, made it through intact as well. I've been told that a very
small portion of dialogue was added towards the end of the game, but otherwise
the original script seems to have been left untouched. In other words, the
script for the PSP version is practically the same as the one used for the PS2
version. Most of the bugs seem to have carried over as well (the cooking bug,
the Ougis bug, etc) aside from cap on the Battle Encounter (although I doubt
that qualifies as a bug, even though everyone likes to treat it like one). The
Duel the Sun Extensions for the PSP port are the same except for the fact
that you press the L button instead of the L2 button for the Blue Earth
Extension (and yes, you still have to press all 5 buttons 11 times). For the
curious, apparently Hilda performs all of the extensions by herself in ToR PSP.
You can now purchase Apple Gels, and there's a new God difficulty rank that is
presumably available on your third playthrough.

Let's see, good changes found in the PSP version...an arena was added (can be
found in the Minal gym, but it's only accessible after the completion of all of
the trials; there is apparently no cameo battle, BTW), there are some new
weapons (e.g. the Jewel of Gardios) and titles, and the game is now widescreen
(which makes sense). There are also some new Hi-Ougi cut-ins for friend and foe
alike, an Illustration Book (found in the basement of Claire's house at the
beginning of the game), and there is now a LOAD option on the Main Menu (don't
mistake this for the SAVE option!). They also changed how the saved data
appears on your memory card, so the picture looks different depending on where
you are in the storyline. There are now some new options in the Grade shop
(thanks to RPGmonkey for posting the list for the Tales board! ^^): All Damage
Halved (10 Grade), Experience Halved (100 Grade), Item Capacity 20
(1000 Grade), Item Capacity 30 (2000 Grade), and Reset Battle Encounter Number
(10 Grade). Oh, they also increased the limit on the Battle Encounter since it
can now go over 10,000...I have no idea what the new limit is, although I guess
it really doesn't matter since they put in the new Grade Shop option there. x32
DAMAGE weapons FTW!!! In addition, the third word puzzle (the one by the flower
cart that had to do with the seasons) was removed for the PSP version.

Hmm, the not-so-good additions to the PSP version...the load times and the
music. Not that I wasn't expecting this, but there are now some slight but
noticeable load times at the start and finish of each battle. The slowdown
doesn't happen every time you get in a fight, so I don't know if there's
something specific that causes it but I have yet to figure out what's
triggering it. The most jarring of the delays is probably revolves around the
victory quotes; sometimes it takes the game several seconds to load the voices.
As for the music, only two songs in particular seem to have suffered from the
transfer: Battle Organization (the random encounter battle music for the first
portion of the game) and Fanfare A (the one that plays when you don't earn any
Grade). They're not bad persay, but it sounds like there are some instruments
missing or something. I noticed that the in-game sound effects are a bit weak
too, but that's just a nitpick.

So which version is better, you may ask? To be honest, they're essentially the
same game, but the PSP version probably has the slight advantage for most
people due to the extras and the lack of region locking for the system. Most of
the complaints I noted are minor and people playing the game for the first time
on the PSP may not even be aware that those are issues that didn't exist in the
PS2 version. My personal preference is for the PS2 version at this point, but
that's more because small, expensive electronic devices and I don't get along
too well. Anyway, your call.

5) Gameplay Mechanics                                                [GAM000]
===============================================================================
Ah, the fun part. I'm just going to lay this out flat for everyone: if you're
one of those people who thinks that Dragon Quest games has mind-blowing
gameplay, then Rebirth is probably not the best game for you to try. And I'm
not saying this just because the game is in Japanese (although that greatly
complicates matters for us importers); Rebirth happens to utilize one of the
most complex, integrated battle systems known to geekdom. BUT if you're like
me and you have a thing for the new, the innovative, the quirky, and the KUREA
scream, then Rebirth will consume your soul (or whatever's left of it, since
video games are inherently evil and everything *cough*). If that sounds good,
then keep reading.

*******************************************************************************
PART A: THE BASICS                                                   [GAMa00]
First and foremost, check out this tutorial that I slapped together. People
have told me that it was very helpful (you guys wouldn't lie to me, now
would you?) and it's only 5 minutes long, so just watch it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88mSwkpszzA

In case you're one of those people who don't read the video info, this is
based on the PS2 version of the game (i.e. some of the button configs differ
for the PSP port) and you will have to use the pause button. A lot. Just bear
with it, okay? General explanations for the following appear in the video:
Basic Controls, FG, RG, defense, HP Recovery, Ougis, and just a smidgen on
Force Cube Effects.

I'm going to elaborate a bit more here, but that should have answered most
of the questions you may have about the Rebirth's battle system. The full
list of Force Cube Effects for each character can be found in Spekio's FAQ,
so I'm not going to repeat that here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MOVEMENT DURING BATTLE                                               [GAMa01]

As you saw in the video, Rebirth utilizes a Three-Line Linear Motion battle
system, which is sort of a compromise between the Linear Motion Battle
System found in Tales of Phantasia (and most 2D fighters) and the Multi-Line
Linear Motion Battle System seen in Tales of Symphonia. It is really, really
easy to die during a random battle if you manage to get sandwiched so learn
how to effectively move between the lines in order to avoid attacks and
combo your enemies.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FORCE GAUGE (FG)                                                     [GAMa02]

The Force Gauge (FG) is unique to Rebirth and replaces the traditional TP
found in other Tales games. Your FG will recover throughout the battle at a
rate that is determined by which Skill (JUTSUWAZA) is assigned to each FG.
Skills with a smaller "FG" parameter (you can see the parameters of each
Skill by pressing the SQUARE button on the screen with the Force Cube on it)
will recover FG more quickly (i.e. they consume less FG, in a sense). For
example, the Skill Zehhyoujin has an FG value of 100 while the Skill Mueishou
has an FG value of 300. Therefore, an FG with Zehhyoujin assigned to it
would fill up 3 times faster than an FG with Mueishou on it. Also, you will
get a sudden boost in FG Recovery right after you or one of your allies
defeats an enemy. Other ways to increase your FG Recovery include using
Annie's Skill Charge Wind, equipping jewels, Enhancing the FG Recovery Stat
on your weapons, having FG Recovery Latent Abilities (LAs) on your weapons,
taking advantage of certain Force Cube Effects (e.g. Mental), and fiddling
with your battle formation. There are also recipes which will recover FG.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
RUSH GAUGE (RG)                                                      [GAMa03]

The Rush Gauge (RG) acts kind of like an Overlimit Gauge in Rebirth, but it
does more than just regulate your Skills/Ougis. As you saw, RG is intimately
related to your HP Recovery, defense, and Ougi usage. When you're in the Cool
Charge state (RG=0), you will experience the following effects:

-Give and take less damage (x1.0)
-Increased HP Recovery (x2.0)
-Your attacks won't have any effect on the enemies' RG level
-Reduced preparation/casting time for Skills and Ougis (x1.0)
-You'll recover from negative status ailments faster (x0.5)
-You cannot block any successive attacks (that was the guard break that I
showed you)

When your RG is at 50, you will experience the following effects:

-Give and take "average" damage (x1.1)
-Normal HP Recovery (x1.0)
-Your attacks will slightly increase the enemies' RG level (x1.0)
-"Average" preparation/casting time for Skills and Ougis (x1.15)
-You'll recover from negative status ailments at an "average" rate (x1.0)
-You can block an "average" number of successive attacks

When you're in the Rush Charge state (RG=100), the effects are as follows:

-Give and take more damage (x1.2)
-No HP Recovery
-Your attacks will greatly increase the enemies' RG level (x2.0)
-Prolonged preparation/casting time for Skills and Ougis (x1.3)
-You'll recover from negative status ailments at a slower rate (x2.0)
-You can block many successive attacks

You can manipulate your RG directly or indirectly during battle (both shown
in the video). Other factors that influence your RG include recipes,
particular LAs, the enemies' defensive properties, and the environment (e.g.
your RG tends to be much higher in warmer climates like the desert and much
lower in cooler areas such as the mountains or inside of caverns).

Under certain conditions, your RG will sometimes change to a predetermined
level.

-Rush Burst (aka Rush Charge, RG=100): After being in this state for about 7
seconds --> RG will become 50.
-Cool Down (aka Cool Charge, RG=0): If you take any damage --> RG will
become 50.
-Poison: While poisoned, your RG will continue to rise. Even if cured, your
RG level will remain high.
-Frozen: The instant that you are freed (e.g. take damage) --> RG will
become 14.
-Panic/Stun: When you recover from being stunned --> RG will become 50.
-Burst Bottle: Right after you use one --> RG will become 100 (i.e. Rush
Burst/Rush Charge).

HP RECOVERY                                                          [GAMa04]

You can increase your HP Recovery by using Annie's Skill Life Materia,
lowering your RG, equipping jewels, Enhancing the HP Recovery Stat on your
armors, having HP Recovery LAs (e.g. HP Heal Up) on your armors, using a
Lime Gummi, and fiddling with your battle formation. Ways to directly
recover HP include cooking, taking advantage of certain Force Cube Effects
(e.g. Heal), using HP Restoring Gummies (e.g. Apple, Peach, Grape), and
having HP Restoring LAs on your armors (e.g. HP +6%).

Finally put a video together for this. You can either read this first or
watch the video. This has more details in it, but the video has some visual

TECHNICAL SMASH                                                      [GAMb01]

A Technical Smash (TS) is another way for the game to evaluate your fighting
performance. Like Grade, certain criteria must be met before you are awarded
a TS. Here they are in order from least to most difficult:

-Burst: Defeat an enemy while your RG=100. TS % Boost=2
-# Chains: Defeat an enemy with a combo attack. For example, if you kill an
enemy after doing a normal 3 chain combo attack + a Skill --> 4 Chains.
If you kill an enemy after doing a normal 3 chain combo attack + a Skill +
an Ougi --> 5 Chains. If you kill an enemy after doing a 4 chain combo attack
(say you activated the SF for Risotto) + a Skill + an Ougi --> 6 Chains.
TS % Boost= [2x(number of combo attacks)] divided by 8 (Notice that # has to
be greater than or equal to 4 before you are given a TS Boost). By the way,
the game does round up any time there's a decimal (so 5 Chains gives you +3%).
-# Group: Defeat a group of enemies at the same time with a single attack.
If you defeat 2 enemies at once --> 2 Group. TS % Boost= [2x(number of
enemies killed at the same time)] minus 1.
-No Damage: Defeat an enemy without taking any damage from that particular
enemy. TS % Boost=1
-High Speed: Defeat an enemy within 5 seconds of the start of the battle.
TS % Boost=1
-Triangle: Attack an enemy with an attack chain consisting of 3 different
strikes (i.e. push the directional pad in 3 different directions when
pressing the CIRCLE button), and defeat the enemy on the third strike. For
example, CIRCLE, CIRCLE + Up, CIRCLE + Back ---> kills the enemy. TS %
Boost=2
-Cool: Defeat an enemy while your RG=0. TS % Boost=4
-Finality: Defeat an enemy with a Hi-Ougi. TS % Boost=7

So what do all these TS % Boosts do anyway? Well, there's a guy in Minal who
gives you items for completing your Battle Book data, which includes item
drops from enemies (See Sub Event #2 for details). Among those items that he
gives you are some talismans for Veigue which give him access to Skills that
he normally can't use (e.g. Demon Fang). You also earn a title for finishing
150 entries. The main purpose of those TS % Boosts is to increase your item
drop rate (TS also slightly increases the amount of Smash Points that you
gain from using a Skill, but it's nothing to write home about). So say that
my normal item acquisition rate was 10% and I managed to get 5 Chains, No
Damage, and Triangle for one of the enemies. My TS % Boost was 1+1+2=4%, so
my new item drop rate for that particular enemy would have been 14%. This can
be important for completing the data for some of those more rare encounters
(*coughCyglorg'sChamberscough*) if you don't like to use the LAs Robber Item
and Dacoity Item.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GRADE                                                                [GAMb02]

There are 8 different criteria for earning Grade, and each of them are worth
a certain amount of base Grade depending on the difficulty of the conditions.
Here's the format that I'm going to use to list the criteria:

[Type of Grade Bonus (Base Grade Earned): Description of Criteria]

10 HITS OVER! (1.20): You must execute a combo consisting of at least 11 hits.
25 HITS OVER! (5.00): You must execute a combo consisting of at least 26 hits.
5 CHAIN FINISH! (2.00): Defeat an enemy with a 5+ Chain Combo (usually normal
                       3 Chain Attack + Skill + Ougi)...see the section on
                       Technical Smashes above if this doesn't make sense.
FULLHP FINISH! (1.40): Everyone in the party must have full life at the end
                       of the battle.
NO DAMAGE FINISH! (1.60): You must defeat all of the enemies without taking a
                          single point of damage (i.e. you cannot block any
                          attacks either since you still take damage...I'm
                          assuming that you aren't using the Silver Gauntlet
                          here).
10 SECONDS FINISH! (2.30): Finish the battle within 10 seconds or less.
30 SECONDS FINISH! (1.00): Finish the battle within 30 seconds or less.
NO GUARDED FINISH! (1.20): Defeat all of the enemies without letting any of
                           them guard against your attacks.

The amount of Grade that you earn also depends on your Battle Rank. The
higher the Rank, the more Grade you will earn. These are the various
multipliers for each level of difficulty:

Easy= 0.8
Normal= 1.0
Hard= 1.2
Mania= 1.4
Unknown= 1.6

To calculate the maximum amount of Grade that you could earn, you simply
multiply the Base Grade Earned by the multiplier for your Battle Rank. So for
instance, a 10 SECONDS FINISH! could give you 1.84 Grade on Easy, 2.30 Grade
on Normal, 2.76 Grade on Hard, 3.22 Grade on Mania, and 3.68 Grade on
Unknown. Notice how I said it was the max Grade possible; despite popular
belief, you can lose Grade in Rebirth; the game docks off Grade points for
certain actions such as using items. However, the total amount of Grade that
you receive for the battle will never go below zero. So no negative Grade for
you; instead, you get the sad Fanfare A at the end of the battle. *sniff*
Also, the amount of Grade that you receive for boss/event battles is
multiplied by 10, so the same criteria that would give you 5.0 Grade in a
normal battle would give you a whopping 50 Grade during a boss fight.

I have some theories about how the Grade deductions are calculated, but I
didn't get this information from the official guide or any other reliable
source. So, uh, don't fillet me if my calculations are a bit off or if I'm
just plain wrong. All of my speculation is the stuff is sort of sectioned
off so you know what to igno...er, take with a grain of salt.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Using an item: -0.08 Grade per item used (-0.80 for boss battles)
Dying: Apparently, there is no Grade deduction.

After playing around with my PSP playthrough, I think I've finally figured the
Grade deductions out. Oddly enough, there's no deduction for dying, so it looks
like the game only docks you if you use an item. Wasting items is a bigger
offense than wasting your life, it seems. *shrugs*
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Okay, back to the kosher stuff. For you Grade farmers out there, you
cannot earn a buttload of Grade in Rebirth by picking on the weakest enemies
in the game for hours on end (and don't any of you try to deny it either!).
Each area has a "set" amount of Grade that you can earn, and you can check
what fraction of Grade you have earned for any particular section by looking
at the second choice under the "Battle Book" option on the main menu. Rebirth
does not reward players who tend to repeat their actions either; once you
have earned Grade for a particular set of enemies, you can't earn more Grade
by meeting the same criteria for that set of enemies. For example, say I have
the following sets of enemies:

Set A: 2 birds
Set B: 1 plant and 1 bug
Set C: 3 birds

Suppose I earn the FULLHP FINISH! bonus while fighting Set A. I get my
1.something Grade and everything's dandy. However, even if I met Set A again
and finished the battle with everyone at full life, I wouldn't get a FULLHP
FINISH! because I've already met that criteria for this set of enemies. But I
could still get FULLHP FINISHES! for Sets B and C since I haven't met that
criteria yet. In other words, it is possible to earn all 8 Grade Bonuses for
every unique set of enemies for a particular area, but each Bonus can only
be "redeemed" once per set of enemies; this is why every area has a finite
amount of Grade.

So say that there are 10 unique sets of enemies in a particular area. There are
8 different Grade requirements per enemy set and if we just assume each Grade
requirement to be equal to 1 (for the sake of simplicity), then the total
amount of available Grade for this area would be 10*8=80. This is similar to
how our Grade earnings for a certain section are shown in the Battle Book. To
view this list, go to the Battle Book option on the main menu (the center one
on the bottom row) and scroll down to the second line. You see a whole bunch
of fractions off to the right side, yes? This indicates a ratio of how much
Grade you've earned over the total amount of Grade available for each area of
the game. If you're really masochistic, you can max out your Grade earnings
for each section, but you shouldn't have to unless you're trying to buy
everything in the Grade shop on your first playthrough (which might not even
be possible, but I'm too lazy to sit here and add that many numbers up).

You may be thinking to yourself, well if Grade earnings are dependent on the
enemy set, then how do I know when I've earned all of the Grade for any given
set? Well, this is where the tutorial video comes in handy. There are 3
different battle fanfares that play depending on your Grade earnings for that
set of enemies. Fanfare A will play if you failed to meet any new criteria for
that enemy set, and there are criteria that are still left to be met. For my
sanity, I'm going to refer to the criteria as criterias A-H instead of listing
the full names from here on. So say that I meet enemy set A as listed above
(2 birds) for the first time and I met Criterias A, B, and D for this set(I'm
going to refer to this situation as EXAMPLE A).

If I fight set A again and I meet Criteria B again, then I'll get Fanfare A.
If I were to fight Set A a third time and I failed to meet any of the
requirements for Criterias C, E, F, G, or H, then I would hear Fanfare A too.
Should I bump into Set A yet a fourth round and met Criterias A, B, and D, but
not C, E, F, G, or H, I'd still get Fanfare A. Basically, Fanfare A is telling
me that I suck. Well, not necessarily, but it IS saying that there's at least
one Criteria for Set A that I just haven't met the requirements for yet.

Okay, back to EXAMPLE A. Say I meet Set A and I meet Criterias A and F; I
would then hear Fanfare B. For the most part, Fanfare B indicates that I met
at least one new Criteria for this set of enemies (there is one exception to
this, but I'll talk about that in a little bit). Notice that it doesn't matter
whether I met a Criteria that I had met previously (in this case, Criteria A).

Returning to EXAMPLE A. Pretend like I'm having a stellar playing day and I
meet Criterias C, E, F, G, and H in one battle. I would then hear the elusive
Fanfare C, which only plays once you've met all 8 criteria for a given set of
enemies. Keep in mind that you don't have to meet the criteria all in one
battle...I'm just giving this example because it saves me some typing. Also
note that Fanfare C will only play at the end of the battle where the last of
the criteria is/are met. If you meet Set A again after you've met all 8 Grade
requirements, then Fanfare B will play instead, but NO GRADE WILL BE EARNED.
In other words, no matter how many more times I meet Set A or how many
criteria I may meet again, I won't get squat in terms of Grade. In essence,
you've already earned all of the Grade that Set A had to offer.

And before anyone starts panicking, the available Grade for each area resets
when you begin a new playthrough, so you're not totally screwed if you're good
at earning Grade. That being said though, since Grade is limited, it's best to
play on the most challenging difficulty level that you can if you want to get
the most bang for your buck (particularly for those boss fights) because of
the way the Grade multipliers work. However, if you just can't get a NO DAMAGE
FINISH! on Unknown for a set of enemies no matter how hard you try, you may
want to consider toning down the difficulty to Mania or Hard and see if you
can meet the Robinso...er, criteria that way. After all, some Grade is better
than none, right?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HI-OUGIS                                                             [GAMb03]

Similar to Technical Smashes and Grade: Hi-Ougis have certain requirements
which must be met before they are "bestowed" upon the player. You won't be
able to manually execute a Hi-Ougi until after a particular point in the
storyline (after your sixth and final member joins your main party). First
off, there's a hidden counter that the game keeps which must reach 100 before
you are able to use a Hi-Ougi. You gain 7 "Hi-Ougi" points every time a Latent
Ability on your equipment awakens, and you receive 3 points when you avoid
taking large amounts of damage during battle.

The second requirement is that there must be only one enemy remaining on the
battlefield. The Hi-Ougis are meant to end the battle (hence the Finality
Charge Break! part), so it won't trigger if you have 3 or 4 little monsters
running around.

The third requirement is that the characters who are capable of performing
a Hi-Ougi must be able to take action. In other words, if your mage is in the
process of chanting or your fighter has been stunned/frozen/negative status
ailmented, you won't be able to pull off a Hi-Ougi. I believe that this also
implies that at least one of your characters who is going to be involved with
the Hi-Ougi must be close to the enemy.

The fourth and final requirement is that if you're fighting a Boss, he/she/it
must have less than 10% of its total life remaining before the Hi-Ougi will
be available (assuming that you still meet the first 3 requirements when that
happens).

There are 3 things that can cause your Hi-Ougi counter to reset (i.e. become
zero). In other words, you will lose your Hi-Ougi if you do any of the
following:

1) If you wait more than 1 minute to press the X button after the Finality
   Charge Break! message appears on the screen.
2) *If you use an item.
3) If one of the characters that was going to be a part of the Hi-Ougi dies
   during the battle.

*I'm not so sure about this one based on personal experience since I've had
Hi-Ougis trigger shortly after using an item. Maybe it depends on who
actually uses the item?

On the flip side, you can trigger Hi-Ougis more easily by doing as such:

1) Use equipment that have Latent Abilities with high Awakening Rates.
2) Directly control the character that you want to do the Hi-Ougi with.
3) Stay within close proximity of the character who will be your partner
   for the Hi-Ougi.

One more random note: an enemy glows red when it has less than 25% of its
total HP remaining (it looks different from a Rush Charge though). This is
an indication that the enemy is almost dead and thus helps you predict when
a Hi-Ougi may pop up.

PART C: ENHANCEMENT AND INHERITANCE                                  [GAMc00]

For this, I'm going to refer you to Gyser's FAQ and this video, which is
pretty much a shorter, moving version of the written FAQ:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjcinmXrCnM

Stuff that you'll see in the video are as follows: How to acquire EP and Bonus
EP, Enhance Basics and Latent Abilities, Inherit Basics, Normal vs Special
Inheritance, Special Inherit Effects, and Irregular Equipment. There is one
error that I noticed recently...in the video, I mistakenly wrote that the
Normal Inheritance for your Latent Ability (LA) will increase the Awakening
Rate for that particular LA (i.e. you would have to get the same LA again in
order to get any benefit from the Inheritance). What I SHOULD have said is
that the Normal Inheritance will boost the Awakening Rate of whatever LA is on
the piece of equipment that is created from or enhanced by the Inheritance.

So for example, say that piece of equipment A has the LA x2 Damage and that it
would normally start with an Awakening Rate of 5.23%. If you Inherited piece B
that had 5 Enhancements on the Awakening Rate of its LA (let's just say it's
FG Heal, but it could be anything) into piece A and a Normal Inheritance
occurred, then the Awakening Rate for the LA x2 Damage on piece A would now be
something like 6.45% when it comes out.

I received a request to list the Kanji for the Latent Abilities so that it
would be easier to identify them in-game. Gyser has already written a thorough
guide on the subject, so this is intended to be used just as a quick
reference; if you want more details, go check out his ToR Enhance-Inherit FAQ.
Gyser gave me permission to borrow portions of his FAQ, so the English
translations for the LAs are based on his guide for the most part. The format
for this is self-explanatory, so here goes.

PART D: TACTICS AND FORMATION                                        [GAMd00]
Again, I'm going to redirect you to Spekio's FAQ (although there are a few
errors here and there for this section) and my video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6o_4v_ATnF4

Topics covered by the video include Basic controls on the Tactics screen,
Explanations for character AI settings, Stats and their relative Stat Boosts,
Suggestions for Battle Formations.

PART E: COOKING                                                      [GAMe00]
Yeps, I got another video for you. Most of this I learned from personal
experience, but you can also check out Spekio's FAQ for some of the
menu translations:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1fdCTdhScU

The video covers the following topics: Basic Controls, Obtaining Ingredients,
Food Tickets, Farm Fresh Groceries, the Magical Pot, Toppings, Added Cooking
Effects, Secret Factors, and translations for all 24 recipes. So if you know
all about those things already, well, then good for you. You may have a piece
of peach pie.

===============================================================================
6) Translations                                                      [TRA000]
===============================================================================
PART A: RECIPE TRANSLATIONS                                          [TRAa00]
If you already know how to cook and junk, then this video has just the
translations for the 24 recipes (ingredients, effects, Secret Factors,
the whole kitten kaboodle):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AD6roQaWvWI

For those of you who are sick of me sending you here, there, and everywhere, I
have reproduced the recipe translations a little further down. See, I can be
nice too sometimes. Anything written in ALL CAPS represents Romaji. If you
can't read Katakana or Hiragana (or if your computer won't display them
properly), you can type the Romaji into this website and it'll spit out the
corresponding Japanese for you (so you know what ingredients you are buying
when you play the game): Kudos goes to Rose to pointing out this great site!

http://www.mauvecloud.net/charsets/fastromaji.html

Or you can just look at what's written in this FAQ. Whatever floats your
yacht. Also, I'll be numbering these in order of appearance on the Cooking
screen, not the order that you receive them. The format appears below:

Ex. Name of Recipe in Japanese (name in Romaji, translated English name)
N. Ing. (Necessary Ingredients): Ing. in Japanese (Romaji, English)
BCE (Basic Cooking Effects): Translation of effects
SF (Secret Factor): Translation of SF
ACE (Added Cooking Effects): a) Topping 1, translation of corresponding effect
                             b) Topping 2, translation of corresponding effect
                             c) Topping 3, translation of corresponding effect
Notes (if any): Suggestions for how recipes can be used to your advantage.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Quick note: the 2nd ACE will typically add to the BCE. For example, if I use
the 2nd topping for Carbonara, I'd get the following effects for the next
battle: HP Rec. 35%, RG +4, Protection against Paralysis for 1 minute (BCE),
Protection against Slow for 1 minute (2nd ACE). However, in certain cases,
the 2nd ACE will simply replace the last BCE listed. For example, with the
Curry Rice, adding octopus would give you HP Rec. 30%, RG +10, and complete
recovery of 2 FGs (not 1 FG or 3FGs).

Sound good? Okay, then without further ado...

Second Finishs, plus you can control when it activates (unlike the SFs).

the effect wears off if you have some x32 Damage weapons.

finish them off with a Skill instead of an Ougi, but it wasn't exactly what
I'd call a really efficient way of doing things.

If you want to see my Hi-Ougi Exhibition, here's the link:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TgInpg2Ouw

And yes, I DO happen to take great pride in the fact that I completed all of
the Duel the Sun extensions by my lonesome! By the way, there IS an error in
the Hi-Ougi FAQ by Dopple32; you have to press X+CIRCLE+SQUARE+TRIANGLE+L2
11 times for the Blue Earth extension, not 10 times. I normally don't go out
of my way to point out errors besides my own, but I felt this one was worth
mentioning.

Ryuukometsugazan (Veigue + Annie)
Annie: The Gate of Purification is not to be disturbed!
Veigue: I see right through you!
Annie: Finishing strike!

Veigue: Blade of Rending Ice!
Hilda: Blade of Conviction!
Veigue: I shall engrave this upon your very being!!
Both: Ougi!! Celcius Calibre!!

Inferno Drive (Eugene + Mao)
Mao: O crimson explosion, come dwell within us!
Eugene: The roaring blast of this demon spear shall burn everything to ashes!
Both: Hi-ougi!! Inferno Drive!!

Thousand Braver (Tytree + Hilda)
Hilda: O perpetual lighting of royal hue, come dwell within him!
Tytree: Take this, our final shot!
Both: Thousand Braver!!

Mao: Can you escape from this flame!
Tytree: Now's the time! I'll become a bird!
Both: Gurentenshou!!

===============================================================================
This information is not too useful in and of itself, but I will be referring
to certain phases in the game for the next 3 sections. Basically, it keeps me
from repeating myself excessively. These phases are divided up as they appear
in the official strategy guide, so don't blame me if they seem a bit odd.
Also, I may have to smooth over the descriptions for some of the later phases

9) Character Specific Info    !!!!!SPOILERS!!!!!                      [CHA000]
===============================================================================
There will be some SPOILERS in Part B of this section, so reader beware.

*******************************************************************************
PART A: SKILLS & OUGIS                                                [CHAa00]

You may notice that some of this information looks like a cut & paste from
KusanagiLord02's Tales Series Translation FAQ...well, that's because it is.
Before you go report my FAQ for plagiarism (and realistically, how many FAQ
thieves openly admit this kind of stuff?), I have received permission from
KusanagiLord02 to reproduce portions of his work here. I'm mostly going to
rely on his descriptions and any series cross-references for this section
since you guys would laugh yourselves silly if I attempted to describe them
in my own words.

Anyway, I am going to add my own bit of info to this while I'm at it, so it
may be worth a read even if you've seen Kusanagi's FAQ. And in case anyone was
wondering, someone suggested that I add this to my FAQ so that the information
would be more centralized (as opposed to being sorted by game in the series)
and I'm a sucker for requests, so there ya go. Also, the links that you will
find under the character's name lead to the Skills/Ougi Exhibition video for
that character (if there's not a link, then I haven't done one for him/her yet)
for those of you who are interested in actually seeing these things.

Alright, here's the format for this section: When I say "attack" in the
format explanation, I mean "Skill/Ougi"...I just don't want to write that
10,000 times. I'm also going to put a line of ~ between a character's Skills
and their Ougis so that the distinction is a bit more obvious.

NAME (Kanji[when applicable]/Furigana/Romaji): Any English translation,
                                               preference given to established
                                               names (e.g. Majinken=Demon Fang)
OR: Origin (Ougis only)...tells you which Skills the Ougi is derived from
DE: Description of the attack
LV: Level at which the attack is learned (if applicable)
EL: Elemental Attribute of the attack
ATK: Attack Power...a normal attack is assigned a base value of 100; I'm also
     assuming that your FG is full when you're using the attack
FG: Amount of Force Units the attack consumes, also defines the max number of
    Force Units the FG that the attack is assigned to can hold; the more Force
    Units an attack consumes (i.e. the greater the FG value), the longer it
    will take for that FG to completely refill after the attack is used.
HP: HP Recovery; the higher this value is, the more HP you recover from using
    the attack
SV: Shock Value...the higher this value is, the easier it is to increase the
    enemy's RG level
OC: Occurrence...defined as the time (in 60ths of a second) from when you
    press the X button to when the attack is initiated; the greater the OC,
    the longer the delay
SB: Steel Body (melee fighters only)...defined as the amount of time (in 60ths
    of a second) that enemy is "stunned" or unable to move after taking this
    attack. The bigger the number, the better.
CT: Chanting Time (mages only)...defined as the amount of time (in 60ths of a
    second) from when you give the command for a spell to when the spell is
    executed; the longer the CT, the longer the preparation time for that spell
RI: Rigidity...defined as the amount of time (in 60ths of a second) that you
    are unable to move after executing the attack; the smaller the RI, the
    sooner you are able to move
HIT: Max number of hits for that attack, although this amount can be exceeded
     in rare cases (e.g. fighting against a very large opponent)
RA: Range of the attack in terms of its effect on the line you're standing on
    and whether or not it affects adjacent/all lines
NOTE: Any other miscellaneous info will be listed here

If anyone's wondering about the order that I'm filling these in, it has to do
with the order of the trials. Basically, if I've already made a Skills/Ougis
Exhibition for the character, then everything's already been translated and I
can finish that part more quickly. Cool beans? Great, let's get crackin' then.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
VEIGUE                                                               [CHAa01]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Thy_K0xAoc0

Veigue's special, so he has 6 Extra Skills in addition to his 8 base Skills.
You can use these Skills by equipping accessories known as Talismans, which
are acquired when you complete certain portions of Sub Event #2 (see the

    fashion.

HP: 21
SV: 13
OC: 11
SB: 6
RI: 24
HIT: 2
RA: Small portion of the line Veigue is standing on plus any adjacent lines
NOTE: Enemies on adjacent lines will only sustain 1 hit instead of 2.

      Zesshouzan: "Finish Soar Slash"
DE: Veigue does a jumping slash that causes multiple hits.
LV: 20
EL: Water

HP: 19
SV: 12
OC: 18
SB: 10
RI: 16
HIT: 3

>>>>>SKILL #5<<<<<
NAME: 幻龍斬 ゲンリュウザン
      Genryuuzan: "Illusion Dragon Slash"

    followed by an upward slash.
LV: 29
EL: N/A
ATK: 400
FG: 210
HP: 24
SV: 9
OC: 6
SB: 9
RI: 24
HIT: 3
RA: Moderate portion of 1 line
NOTE: Genryuuzan is a versatile Skill; it can be used to get out of a pincer
      attack, pass through an enemy, or to get behind the enemy. You can also
      change directions to some extent if you choose a different target in the
      middle of your attack.

>>>>>SKILL #6<<<<<
NAME: 無影衝 ムエイショウ
      Mueishou: "Shadow-less Rush"
DE: Veigue dashes backwards, then dashes forward with a horizontal slash that
    creates many "invisible" slashes.

ATK: 450
FG: 300
HP: 30
SV: 12
OC: 21

      Zetsu Muhyousou: "Slash Mist Ice Dress"
DE: Veigue concentrates his Force and covers his blade with ice.
LV: 24
EL: Water
FG: 450
HP: 50
NOTE: Unlike Normal Skills, Refining Skills can only be used when the FGs that
      they are assigned to are completely full. Zetsu Muhyousou gives all of
      Veigue's attacks a chance of freezing the enemy; this effect lasts for 15
      seconds. Also, this Skill halves his current RG, so it can be used to
      improve his HP regeneration.

>>>>>SKILL #8<<<<< (Refining Skill)
NAME: 絶・瞬影迅 ゼツ・シュンエイジン
      Zetsu Shuneijin: "Slash Blink Shadow Quick"
DE: Veigue concentrates his Force around his feet.
LV: 43
EL: Water
FG: 550
HP: 60
NOTE: Unlike Normal Skills, Refining Skills can only be used when the FGs that
      they are assigned to are completely full. Zetsu Shuneijin boosts Veigue's
      movement speed by 50% and lowers his RG while he's moving. This effect
      lasts for 12 seconds. This is also another great way to increase Veigue's
      HP Recovery since it lowers his RG.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Level Learned (LV) is going to be replaced with Talisman (TA) for this section;
the Skill that needs to be used in order for the Extra Skill to appear will be
listed under the TA area in parenthesis. Note that the FG that your Extra Skill
is assigned to must be full; if it's not, then you'll just execute the Normal
Skill. For example, let's say that I have Extra Skill A that requires me to
use Normal Skill A and that they're assigned to FG #1. If I use FG #1 while
it's full, I'll perform Extra Skill A. If I use FG #1 and it's not full, then
I'll perform Normal Skill A instead. Capiche?

LV: 27
EL: Earth
FG: 400

NOTE: Unlike Normal Skills, Refining Skills can only be used when the FGs that
      they are assigned to are completely full. Ren Koutaisou makes it to where
      Eugene will not be knocked back when he's hit by an enemy's magical
      attack; while it doesn't directly reduce the amount of damage that Eugene
      takes from a magic attack, it does enable him to move out of range so
      that he can avoid the brunt of the spell (think of this as a non-cheap
      version of Abyss' Free Run, if you will). This effect lasts for 15
      seconds. The HP Recovery is quite high as well, so keep that in mind.

NOTE: Unlike Normal Skills, Refining Skills can only be used when the FGs that

      where Eugene can repel an enemy's attack while guarding; it also reduces
      the amount of damage taken while in the guarding stance. This effect
      lasts for 12 seconds. It is best to use this Refining Skill when your RG
      is high so that you are able to guard more effectively. Notice the very
      high HP Recovery stat.

With the exception of the Refining Skill Drag Leben, Annie will have EF
(effect) in place of the ATK which indicates the percentage boost of the stat
in question. So EF=110 would mean that the stat would increase by 10%. For
her Ougis, I'm going to omit the description (DE) since they basically all
look the same. And yeah, I made a ton of name errors in her Skills & Ougi
Exhibition...alas, I have no talent for German it seems. I purposely didn't
check anyone else's FAQ prior to making this exhibition since I tend to
subconsciously copy things, but I guess I should have. I'll fix the video one
of these days.

>>>>>OUGI #1<<<<<

EL: Earth
FG: 400
HP: 50

      (RG=100); this cuts the time that an enemy is invincible after being
      knocked back by 50%. The effect of Burst Regen can be amplified by
      pairing it with the Force Cube Effect SUPPORT.

LV: 40
EL: Earth
FG: 400
HP: 30

NOTE: This Ougi shares its name with the Armor Latent Ability FLASH since it
      essentially produces the same effect. If timed properly, Flash Regen
      could be a huge asset during boss battles.

>>>>>OUGI #6<<<<<
NAME: スタン・レーゲン Stun Regen

EF: Forcibly decreases the RG of enemies within rainfall by about 25
LV: 30
EL: Earth
FG: 400
HP: 50
CT: 75

      Cube Effect SUPPORT.

      they are assigned to are completely full. Geki Shunsatsuren reduces the
      time period that Tytree is immobile after using a Skill (except for
      Jyuhousen and Senshousen). It also allows for faster comboing and
      shortens the amount of time that you are stunned after taking a hit.
      Your RG will rise by 30 after using Geki Shunsatsuren.

      counterattack with a shock when an enemy lands a direct hit on Hilda. Be

10) Sub Events                                                        [SUB000]
===============================================================================
The Sub Events section is intimately linked to the Titles section;
essentially, this portion will provide more details about how to earn those
titles and other goodies.

For those of you who have the Official Guide in hand, I will be listing the
Sub Events in a slightly different order. The guide numbers the Sub Events in
the order in which you visit different locales, which I happen to find
illogical and confusing; therefore, I will be numbering the Sub Events in
chronological order by Phase instead (for the most part anyway...the last 3
can be started early in the game, but you won't likely finish them for a long
time).

In this first section, I'm going to make a list of all of the Sub Events.
The Details portion of the Sub Events section will contain all of the
specifics for each event (when I get to them, of course).

By the way, I haven't personally completed a lot of these Sub Events, so if
the information sounds a bit vague, it's because the guide doesn't give me a
specific location or something. In any case if I ever have the time (ha!),
I'll try to translate some of the Sub Events that give you more background
info for the storyline (although that really is at the bottom of my priority
list right now, so don't hold your breath or anything...unless someone wants
to volunteer to help me, of course ^^).

*******************************************************************************
PART A: SUB EVENT SUMMARY                                            [SUBa00]

Here's the format for the Sub Event list summary.

#) Name of the Sub Event
I. Phase: Indicates the time period that a Sub Event can be INITIATED. The
       first number represents the earliest phase that a Sub Event is
       available; the second number (if applicable) represents the latest
       phase that the Sub Event can be started. In other words, some Sub
       Events have limited availability! So for instance, Sub Event #1 can be
       initiated any time from the very beginning of the game up until the
       boss battle at the end of Phase 25. However, you won't be able to
       complete the Sub Event if you try to trigger the event for the first
       time from Phase 26 or later. Notice that for the summary, this ONLY
       refers to triggering the Sub Event the first time...some of the events
       have multiple parts to them; phase restrictions for each part will be
       listed under the Details section below.

PART B: SUB EVENT DETAILS                                            [SUBb00]
There isn't going to be a set format for this section persay since each Sub
Event follows a different process. At the very least, I'll have the following
information for you for all of them:

Name: Name of the Event
I. Phase: Indicates the time period that a Sub Event can be INITIATED
C. Phase: Indicates the earliest phase that you can COMPLETE the Sub Event
PL: Specific place where the Sub Event occurs
PA: Number of parts to the Sub Event
MS: Indicates whether a Sub Event is missable or not. "No" means that you
    should be able to activate and complete the Sub Event as long as you
    haven't entered the final dungeon yet. You may be able to do it even
    after you start Phase 55, but I make no guarantees. "Yes" means that
    the Sub Event itself or its parts have limited availability.
DE: General description of Sub Event

Okey dokey, let's see how many of these I can get through before I decide
to completely redo the format!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub Event #1                                                         [SUBb01]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Monica & Steve
I. Phase: 1-25
C. Phase: 53
PL: Sulz (see each part for more details)
PA: 4
MS: YES!
DE: This event involves getting together two of Veigue's neighbors, Monica
    and Steve. Doing so will net you a weapon and a title for Veigue. This
    event is really easy to overlook, so be careful to pay attention to the
    active phases for each part (particularly parts 2 and 3). Your rewards
    for completing this event include the 剣「バルスンク」 Barsunc? Sword
    (for Veigue) and the 称号「恋のキュ一ピット」 Love Cupid Title
    (for Veigue as well).

PART 1: (Phases 1-25)
Active from the time that Claire is abducted until the boss battle in
Karegia Castle.
  > First talk to Steve in the weapons shop.
  > Then talk to Monica in front of the assembly hall.

PART 2: (Phases 26-43)
Active from when "Claire" joins your party at the hostel near Sulz
until you part ways at Scarab's house in Belsas.
  > First talk to Steve in the weapons shop.
  > Then talk to Monica in front of the assembly hall.

PART 3: (Phases 44-51)
Active from when you first arrive at the Shrine of Blue until you act as a
mediator between the Humas and Gajumas in Minal.
  > First talk to Steve in the weapons shop.
  > Then talk to Monica in front of the assembly hall.

PART 4: (Phase 53)
Active during Aunt Popura's peach pie party.
  > Talk to Steve and Monica during the party.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub Event #2                                                         [SUBb02]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: The Complete Old Man
I. Phase: 5
C. Phase: 55 (I think?)
PL: Minal (in the gymnasium...head towards the library and you'll see a set
    of stairs going down. The building at the bottom is the gym)
PA: 1 (technically)
MS: No
DE: There's an old man in the gym who will give you items in exchange for
    completing the enemy data section of your Battle Book. The talismans that
    you receive from him can be equipped by Veigue and change some of his
    Skills to ones that are more "traditional" for a swordsman in the Tales
    series (e.g. Demon Fang/Majinken). The list that appears below assumes
    that you have filled in all of the enemy data (i.e. you've fought, killed,
    received any item drops from those enemies, activated any defensive or
    offensive latent abilities that they may have...basically, you should have
    no question marks under the enemy's data) up through that point excluding
    the event/boss battles. In addition to a bunch of items, everyone in your
    main party will receive the 称号「バトルマスタ一」Battle Master Title once
    you've completed every entry (I believe there are 158 total). You can see
    how many entries you've finished by checking your Battle Book on the main
    menu (it is the middle option on the bottom row). From there, choose the
    last option 戦闘歴史 "Battle History". The number of entries completed
    should be the fourth option from the bottom 敵コンプリ一ト数 "Number of
    Completed Enemy Entries."

Here's the format for this section:
# entries completed: Item awarded (first area where requirements can be met)

5 Entries: 「ステップブ一ツ」 Step Boots (ス一ルズ周辺 Outskirts of Sulz)
10 Entries: 「魔神の魂」 Majin Spirit Talisman (アルヴァン山脈 Alvan Mountains)
20 Entries: 「アップルグミ」 Apple Gummi (ペトナジャンカ周辺 Outskirts of
             Petnadjanka)
30 Entries: 「風神の魂」 Fuujin Spirit Talisman (カレ一ズ Karez)
40 Entries: 「回錬石」 Recovery Refine Stone (バビログラ一ド周辺 Outskirts of
             Babilograd)
50 Entries: 「ピ一チグミ」 Peach Gummi (バルカ周辺 Outskirts of Balka)
60 Entries: 「カモミ一ル」 Chamomile (ラジルダ周辺 Outskirts of Razilda)

Sub Event #3                                                         [SUBb03]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Moving Library
I. Phase: 6 (after Annie joins your party)
C. Phase: 48
PL: Minal and all over the world (see each part for more details)
PA: 3
MS: You can apparently miss Part 2, but you can still get the title as long as
    you complete part 3.
DE: This is an event where you lend and retrieve books for the librarian in
    Minal. Be aware that you need to coordinate this Sub Event with the Sub
    Event #15, The Young Girl with the Force of Feather, since you need to
    let that girl borrow one of those books. Also, in Parts 2 and 3, you can
    retrieve the books right after you lend it to the people once you step
    onto the world map. So basically, you can lend it to them, exit onto the
    world map, and re-enter to take it back to the library. All of this
    legwork nets you a couple of random items and the 称号「本のソムリエ」
    Book Sommelier Title for your main party.

Here's the format that I'm going to use for this Sub Event.

L. Place: Place where you can find the person whom you're lending the book to
          (Parts 2 & 3 only)
R. Place: Place where you can find the person so that you can retrieve the
          book
Person: Person who's borrowing the book
A. Phase: Indicates the phase/time period when a person first becomes
          available
Book: Name of the book
Thanks: What the person gives you (if anything) for doing his/her chores for
        them

*******************************************************************************
PART 1: (Phases 6-44)
In this part, you are returning books to the librarian in Minal. Talk to the
librarian first. Then go visit these people and they should give you a book.
All you have to do now is return to the library and talk to the librarian
again. Piece of cake, right? BTW, in case you didn't know, there's usually a
guy with a cowboy hat that stands near the entrance of the towns...he's
basically your fastest way of travelling between towns until Phase 25, so use
him. He charges 300 Gald, but trust me, you don't want to hike from all the
way from Babilograd to Minal. After Phase 25, all of the ports reopen, so it's
generally faster to go by boat at that point. After Phase 44, well, you'll
know what the best way to travel will be when you get there.

*******************************************************************************
PART 2: (Phase 45 onward...except for maybe Person #5)
Okay, I've finally figured out what the deal is with this part. You must
complete Part 1 of Sub Event #15 (The Young Girl With The Force Of Feather)
before the people in Part 2 of this Sub Event will appear! I've made the
necessary changes, so do a search for "[SUBb15]" (note that if you do a search
up for the same term, it should bring you back here) and finish that first.

So you've taken care of Ninon's part, right? Good, now go talk to the
librarian again. He should give you the option of checking out a book once
more. Pick the one you need (you can check out up to three books at the same
time) and go talk to the person who's borrowing the book and exit to the
world map. After that, go to the Retrieval Place that is indicated. And
finally, bring the book back to the librarian.

Sub Event #4                                                         [SUBb04]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: The Old Guy Who Likes Cats
I. Phase: 10 onward (after you arrive in Sannytown)
C. Phase: 55 (1 Discovery Spot doesn't appear until near the end of the game)
PL: Sannytown (residence near the southern exit of town...just look for a
    house that has a whole bunch of cats crawling around in it)
PA: 1 technically
MS: No
DE: The old man who likes cats is the person who gives you information about
    Discovery Spots (those green circular things that appear on the world
    map). He'll provide you with hints about their locations and will also
    give you titles when you find a predetermined number of Discovery Spots.
    He will give you the トラベラ一 Traveller Title when you first talk to him,
    but you will need to give him the item まねきネコ Beckoning Cat (it's a
    figure of a white cat that some Asian businesses have in the front of
    their stores in order to "usher" in customers...call it a good luck charm
    for business, if you will) if you want to get the rest of the titles from
    this guy. The Beckoning Cat can be purchased from the item shop in Minal.

There are a total of 64 Discovery Spots on the world map. You will receive
titles after making 30, 40, 50, and 64 "Discoveries," as he likes to call
them. You also get a title after you find the 7 Discoveries which are related
to the Sacred Beasts. Obviously, text is not the most appropriate form of
relaying information in this case, so I will redirect you to a spiffy map
that has all of the Discoveries listed on it (kudos to zer83 for finding it!
Note that this map was done by someone else entirely though):

http://www.matukin.com/image/tor_world_map_discovery.jpg

Also, you have what you could call a "search" level which is the same as
Veigue's real level. Every spot has a minimum search level which is associated
with it, so you won't be able to find the spot if your actual level is too
low. For instance, if Discovery Spot #3 has a minimum search level of 35 and
you're only level 30, you could literally run over that spot hundreds of times
and never get it to pop up (trust me, I speak from experience). And that's
where I come in! I'm going to list the minimum search level requirement for
all of the Discovery Spots on the map that I linked to so that you're not
running around like an idi...er, like me. I'll also mark which ones are
associated with the Sacred Beasts so that it makes it easier to get the
七星陣発見 Discovery of the 7 Constellations Title. If you are dying to know
the names of each Discovery Spot...well, tough toots. Maybe I'll fill that in
when I don't have, like, half of the storyline left to sub. The names of the
actual titles you'll receive can be found in the Character Titles section...
you can look under anyone who's in the main party (i.e. everyone except Claire
and Agarte).

Here's the format for this section:
Number as it appears on that map: Minimum Search Level, Range

The range will be indicated by a number of asterisks (*) ranging from 1 to 3.
The fewer the asterisks, the closer you have to be to the exact point in
order to find the Discovery Spot. One asterisk is approximately equal to one
body width (the amount of space that your on-screen character takes up when
s/he is on the world map). I'll be placing exclamation points (!) next to the
Sacred Beast Stone Monument Discoveries. Oh, and just ignore the stuff in the
parentheses. The map that I linked to is numbered in a completely different
order from the one in the Official Guide, so I'm putting that info for my
reference in case I need to double check myself.

WARNING!! Discovery Spot #64 will only be accessible AFTER the appearance of
the last dungeon during Phase 55! It's on a small island that is not marked on
the map, so you'll just have fly around. You can see your current location on
the world map a bit better by pressing on the R3 stick (the right analog
stick).

Sub Event #5                                                         [SUBb05]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Hack's Gratitude
I. Phase: 21~25
C. Phase: 21~25
PL: Balka (in Jibel's house, which is across from the item/accessory shop)
PA: 1
MS: YES
DE: This Sub Event is pretty simple. Just talk to Hack anytime after you save
    him in Mesechina Cavern until the boss battle in Karegia Castle and he'll
    give you the 杖「アンダリュ一サイト」 Andrew Sight? Staff for Annie. If you
    talk to him again, he'll ask you if you're taking good care of the staff
    and such. He'll only give you the staff once though. The staff is unique
    (i.e. it can't be purchased or created), so it's up to you whether or not
    you decide to keep it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub Event #6                                                         [SUBb06]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Mystery of the Iron Factory
I. Phase: 30~47
C. Phase: 30~47
PL: Petnadjanka (in the Iron Factory)
PA: 12
MS: YES
DE: This Sub Event is available from when you give Eugene the medicine that
    you get from Razilda until you meet with the Sacred Beast Randgriz. For
    this Sub Event, the factory manager basically asks you to investigate the
    suspicious events that have been taking place in the factory. You have
    to do a lot of running around to collect both information and pieces of a
    mysterious brooch. You will be rewarded with the 称号「名探偵」 Great
    Detective Title for Veigue and Annie, 称号「迷探偵」 the Sloppy Detective
    Title for Tytree, エリクツ一ル an Elixir, and 5,000 Gald for completing
    this event. A random note, but the titles are rather funny since they are
    both pronounced the same way (MEITANTEI), but have completely opposite
    meanings. Anyway, I'm just going to list the different steps, so no
    hare-brained formats for this event.

1) Talk to the Factory Manager in the Control Room (that room near the
   entrance of the factory with the save point)
2) Go to the Rookie's house and talk to him.
3) Talk to everyone inside of the factory. Then go to the main corridor.
4) When prompted with a choice, pick 「怪しい場所」 Suspicious Place.
5) Examine the hole in the wall in the room with the blast furnace on the 2nd
   floor.
6) Talk to the factory worker in that same room.
7) Then talk to all of the workers in the other areas of the factory.
8) Go back to the blast furnace room on the second floor and check out the
   hole in the wall again.
9) Gather the 4 pieces of the brooch from the treasure chests. Note that the
   brooch you are putting together is round, so if you pick up a piece and
   it doesn't look like it's part of a circle, you may have opened the wrong
   treasure chest.
   a) To get to Piece 1, go down the main corridor of the factory and go into
      the only door on the right side. It's in the chest on that big crate.
   b) Piece 2 is on the 1st floor of the factory in the room with the blast
      furnace. Remember that oven-looking thing you tossed the coal into way
      back when you came to get Tytree? The chest should be right next to the
      oven (near the upper left-hand corner of the screen).
   c) Piece 3 is in the same room as Piece 2, but you have to go up to the 2nd
      floor and go down the ladder from there in order to reach it. It's
      behind that big crate in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
   d) If you're coming from the blast furnace room on the 1st floor, Piece 4
      is in the room to the left (the room that the conveyor belt goes into).
      The last piece is in that chest all the way on the left side of the
      screen.
10) Go back into the first floor blast furnace room and talk to the guy there.
    He'll give you an iron mold.
11) Return to the room where you found Piece 4 and talk to the worker. You'll
    hand over the mold and the guy will make 「ユリのブロ一チ」 Yuri's Brooch
    for you.
12) Place Yuri's Brooch in the hole in the wall on the 2nd floor room with the
    blast furnace.

Sub Event #7                                                         [SUBb07]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Kindhearted Mister
I. Phase: 30~47, 51 onward
C. Phase: 30
PL: Climbers' Cavern (the locked cell in the room right before the area with
    the save point...it's about halfway through the cavern).
PA: 4
MS: No
DE: Remember when you were going through the Climbers' Cavern way back when
    and there was one treasure chest that you couldn't get to because the
    lever was broken? Okay, so maybe you don't, but now's your chance to
    get the contents of that chest, 宝石「ライフエメラルド」 the Life Emerald
    Jewel, and earn a title for Eugene in the process (「やさしいおじちゃん」
    Kindhearted Mister Title). The event starts when you talk to the Gajuma
    mom who's standing in front of the locked cell. Apparently, her little
    sprat somehow managed to get trapped in the cell even though he was able
    to avoid that enemy-infested mist. Anyway, your job is to get him out of
    there. This event is pretty simple (but a tad time-consuming, especially
    if you don't have Shaorune yet), so no special format.

1) Head over to the place where the kid is stuck.
2) Talk to mom in front of the cell.
3) Go to Petnadjanka and talk to the Factory Manager (he should be in the room
   near the entrance that has the save point in it). He'll give you the
  「ナカコ鉱石」Nakako Ore. If you talk to him again with Tytree, you'll find
   out the reason why Tytree knew about this ore apparently.
4) Go back to the Climbers' Cavern and talk to the mom again.

Sub Event #8                                                         [SUBb08]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: The Stone Tablets of Mesechina Caverns
I. Phase: 30 (from when you hear the story about the flag until you complete
          the Shrine of Eephon)
C. Phase: 48
PL: Depends, but mostly in the Mesechina Cavern (see below for details)
PA: 6
MS: YES
DE: After Veigue and company discover the stone monuments in Mesechina Cavern,
    Hack goes in there to decipher them. He decodes more of it as you progress
    through the game, so the subject matter will also change gradually. The
    timing for each conversation is pretty precise so it's best to check back
    often with him if you don't want to miss anything, particularly the part
    that takes place in Phase 47. If Hack isn't at the cavern for some reason,
    there should be a memo on the stone monuments that has whatever he's
    decoded up to that point written on it. Note that you can no longer view
    any portion of this Event once the last dungeon appears in Phase 55. Also,
    you don't receive any material goods for completing this Event so if you
    can't read Japanese, it might not be worth the effort. Unless, of course,
    you just want to see Hack again in case saving his hide 3 times isn't
    enough for ya.

For this Event, I'm just gonna tell you when you're supposed to talk to Hack
and where you can find him if he's not in Mesechina Cavern.

Part 1: Phase 30~31 (from when you hear the story about the flag in Razilda
        until you complete the Shrine of Eephon)
Part 2: Phase 35~41 (from when you meet Saleh outside of the inn in Razilda
        until you complete the Shrine of Wontiga)
Part 3: Phase 42~44 (from when you first arrive in Belsas until you complete
        the Shrine of Blue)
Part 4: Phase 45~46 (from when you first arrive in Mocrado Village until you
        complete the Shrine of Gilione)
Part 5: Phase 47 (from when you ask Frantz about the Island of Illusion until
        you meet the Sacred Beast Randgriz for the first time)
Part 6: Phase 48 (when you start acting as a mediator between the Humas and
        the Gajumas throughout the world...but only until Yuris' Realm
        appears)

So where in the world is Hack anyway?
Balka: From when you first rescue him in the Mesechina Cavern until you
       complete the Shrine of Eephon
Pipista: From when you solve the mystery of the Sacred Altar until the
         appearance of the Burning Tower
Razilda: From when you ask about the "ancient tower which rises up into the
         clouds" in Razilda until you leave the city
Mesechina Cavern: He should be here if he's not in the other 3 places listed
                  up until the appearance of the last dungeon

Sub Event #9                                                         [SUBb09]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Enhancement Obsession?
I. Phase: 35 (anytime after you complete the the Shrine of Fenia/the Burning
          Tower)
C. Phase: 35
PL: the Flame-holders outside of Pipista (the middle Flame-holder along the
    left wing of the gigantic bird ground drawing thing)
PA: 1
MS: No
DE: Basically, there's a guy at one of the Flame-holders who has a thing for
    Enhancing and will give you an armor in exchange for a Refining Stone.
    Doing this twice nets you the 防具「リフレ一ル」 Refrel? Armor for Hilda
    and the 防具「ウェディングドレス」 Winding Dress for Annie. The reward is
    always the same, so it's to your advantage to get these armors early on
    instead of waiting.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub Event #10                                                        [SUBb10]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Waltu & Eugene
I. Phase: 36~41 (from after you enter Kyogen until you complete the Shrine of
          Wontiga)
C. Phase: 36
PL: Balka (in front of Karegia Castle)
PA: 1
MS: YES
DE: If you try to enter Karegia Castle, you'll bump into Waltu, and he and
    Eugene will start to talk. This is an easy Sub Event to miss since you're
    running around Kyogen and Nolzen at this point in the game. You don't get
    anything for this one, so again, it may not be worth it for those who
    can't read (or don't feel like deciphering) Japanese.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub Event #11                                                        [SUBb11]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Auction
I. Phase: 40~57 (From after you climb up the Tower of Nereg until Wan Gin dies)
C. Phase: 40
PL: Kyogen (Auction House) and Balka (Museum)
PA: That's up to you, actually.
MS: YES
DE: You start this Event by talking to the museum curator in Balka (it's that
    huge building that's near the weapon/armor shop off on the west side of
    the city...the curator is the guy in the back behind the counter on the
    first floor). He asks you to bid on 1 of 8 requested items at Kyogen's
    auctions so that they can be displayed in the museum. Since the items
    which appear in the auction are chosen at random, it's best to start
    bidding as soon as you get a chance. The curator will give you an
    estimated value for the items that he requests and will reimburse you
    after you bring the item back to the museum. You can technically keep the
    requested items (I don't know why you'd want to do that though); however,
    if you choose to display them in the museum, you can earn individual
    titles for the main party, Claire, and Agarte by examining them (they're
    displayed up on the second floor of the museum...you don't actually have to
    change your on-screen character either as long as that person's in your
    party). In addition, everyone in the main party will get the
    オ一クションの達人 Auction Specialist Title when you display all 8 items
    (plus the curator will give you an hourglass for your troubles). There are
    also many rare items for auction that serve a more practical purpose such
    as Refine Stones. Keep in mind that a new auction begins once you've
    stepped out onto the World Map.

The first time that you talk to Wan Gin, he'll make a sly comment and ask you
if you want to participate in the auction. Select "yes" (はい) and he should
give you a whole bunch of directions (which I'll explain in a minute). For
future reference, when you talk to Wan Gin again, the first question he asks
you is if you want to bid in the auction. The second question that he asks
you is if you want to hear the directions for the auction again (which I would
presume that most of you wouldn't). Okay, now I'm going to give you the
instructions for actually bidding in the auction:

TRIANGLE button: 値段をつり上げる Jack up the price
-->Raises the price by about 50%

SQUARE button: 探りを入れる Test the waters
-->Raises the price by about 5%

X button: あきらめる Give up
-->End the auction

Just in case, here's a quick explanation of how a real auction works. There's
a start price for each item and the auction continues as long as the bid
amounts increase. If no new bids are placed after a certain amount of time,
then the bidder with the highest bid wins the item.

In terms of the auction in Kyogen, the other bidders are more likely to place
another bid when you choose "Test the waters" compared to when you choose
"Jack up the price." Also, when the price of the item exceeds its estimated
value, the other bidders are more reluctant to place further bids. You can
usually win the item by choosing the "Test the waters" option until the price
is about 65-75% of its estimated value and then choosing the "Jack up the
price" option.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PROBABILITY OF A CERTAIN TYPE OF ITEM APPEARING IN THE AUCTION
a) If you've taken a request from the curator:
-->Requested Item=1/6, Common Item=3/6, Rare Item=2/6

b) If you haven't taken a request from the curator:
-->Requested Item=0/5, Common Item=3/5, Rare Item=2/5

So basically, you have to take a request from the curator or the items that he
asks for will never appear. Simple as that. Also, these percentages assume
that you haven't already purchased the maximum number of each rare item that
is allowed.

LIST OF COMMON ITEMS FOR AUCTION
*Note that the probability of appearing for each of these items is 1/11. Also,
there is no limit to how many of these that you can purchase. However, the
item won't be offered if you already have 15 of them because then you wouldn't
be able to carry it anyway. This has nothing to do with the Sub Event, but I
absolutely suck at making tables without help from an actual word processor,
so you're just going to have to settle with this...table wannabe thing.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Donnell Once Again
I. Phase: 44 (after Claire gives her speech in Belsas)
C. Phase: 44
PL: Kyogen (inside of Wan Gin's mansion...the room where "Agarte" was being
    kept)
PA: 1
MS: No
DE: Remember Donnell? He's the guy with the Force of Earth that you fought at
    Climbers' Cavern way back when you were trying to get to Balka from
    Babilograd. Anyway, he was presumed to be dead since he dropped a couple
    of large boulders on himself, but he's actually alive and in Kyogen. He
    should be in the room where "Agarte" was being kept (the right room in
    Wan Gin's mansion). He still has the same funky accent, but his
    personality is completely different now. Apparently, if you talk to
    Yottsua in Balka (the Karegian Dictionary guy), you can learn how Donnell
    survived. If you purchase 「レアな有力情報」 Rare Important Information
    from the shrimp, he'll let you in on the rumor about Donnell. You don't
    get anything for this Sub Event, so people who can't read Japanese may not
    wanna bother, yada yada yada. I'm starting to sound like a broken record.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub Event #13                                                        [SUBb13]

Name: The Lady Who Collects Jewels
I. Phase: 44 (after Claire gives her speech in Belsas)
C. Phase: 44
PL: Belsas (at the port)
PA: 2
MS: No
DE: Okay, there's a lady in Belsas who has a thing for jewels, so you can
    trade any of two of them for equipment. The first time she will give you
    the 武器「ディストランゲ」 Distrang? Weapon for Tytree, and the second time
    she'll give you the 武器「ゲイリュイオン」 Geyruion? Weapon for Annie.
    Simple, huh?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub Event #14                                                        [SUBb14]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Militsa & Hilda
I. Phase: 45~46 (From when you complete the Shrine of Blue until you complete
          the Shrine of Gilione)
C. Phase: 45
PL: Karez (the area above ground with the save point)
PA: 1
MS: YES!
DE: This is a Sub Event where Militsa reveals a secret from her childhood.
    The timing for this event is extremely short, so it's best to ride
    Shaorune right after you get him to go see this Event.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub Event #15                                                        [SUBb15]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: The Young Girl with the Force of Feather
I. Phase: 45 (After you complete the Shrine of Blue)
C. Phase: 57
PL: Len Pao Sky Garden (in a mountain range near Nolzen)
PA: 3 main parts
MS: YES (Take a look at Sub Event #3 if you haven't already)
DE: You will need Shaorune in order to reach the Lan Pao Sky Garden. Anyway,
    you basically help a girl named Ninon gain control of her Force of
    Feather, which causes everything to float. This Sub Event is linked to Sub
    Event #3, so refer back to that section if you don't know where/when to
    get the books. You get 3 titles for completing this Event: a
    称号「良き指導者」 Good Leader Title for Eugene, a 称号「料理の師匠」Cooking
    Instructor Title for Tytree, and a 称号「孤独を知る女」Woman Who Knows
    Loneliness Title for Hilda. You also get a Lime Gummi and a Liquor Bottle
    from Ninon during Part 1, and a Hourglass from her during Part 2.

NOTE: I've made some slight changes to this Sub Event so that you can actually
trigger Part 2 of the Moving Library Sub Event (SE #3), so pay attention.

PART 1: Phase 45 (Available after you complete the Shrine of Blue)
1) Meet with Ninon in the back of the Len Pao Sky Garden.
2) Re-enter the Sky Garden and speak to Ninon a second time.
3) Go to the Toyohose Hostel (it's near Petnadjanka...the place where Tytree
   served you the Laughing Mushrooms by accident) and pick 7 of the
   Akadamadake mushrooms (those are the ones that DO have spots on
   them...you know you have the correct ones if you see a picture of a
   mushroom pop up instead of Veigue's text box).
4) Go back to the Sky Garden and hand the mushrooms to Ninon.
5) Exit to the World Map and re-enter the Sky Garden.
6) Examine the mushrooms which are in front of the house where Ninon is.
7) Talk to Ninon.
8) Complete Part 1 of Sub Event #3 The Moving Library if you haven't already.
9) See Ninon in the Sky Garden.
10) Borrow the book 旅行記 Travel Journal from the librarian in Minal.
11) Go to the Sky Garden and let Ninon temporarily borrow the book.
12) Exit to the World Map and re-enter the Sky Garden.
13) Get the Travel Journal back from Ninon.
14) Go back to the librarian and talk to him. Select the second option
    (本を返す) and this should trigger a small scene between the party and the
    librarian. Now you can attempt Part 2 of the Moving Library Sub Event.

Okay, you're done all you can with this Event until Phase 54...in other
words, QUIT SCROLLING or don't look at Part 2 unless you want to be
spoiled!

*******************************************************************************
PART 2: Phase 54 (After you've gone to see Geyorkias at Mount Sovereign)
1) Go meet with Ninon at the Sky Garden.
2) Go to Kyogen and speak with Igol. He'll give you a Pill of Serenity (the
   same medicine that you gave Eugene when he was going berserk) to share
   with Ninon.
NOTE: If you're doing this part of the Event after you've set the stones in
      Yuris' Lower Realm, then Igol can be found in Pipista in front of the
      inn.
3) Go back to the Sky Garden and have Ninon take the Pill of Serenity. She
   should give you an hourglass as thanks.

Okay, you're set until Phase 57.

*******************************************************************************
PART 3: Phase 57 (After you've entered Grunhelde, which is between the Middle
        Realm and the Lower Realm)
1) Go talk to Ninon.  And you're finally finished!

Name: Peeping Tom Cat
I. Phase: 45 (After you complete the Shrine of Blue)
C. Phase: N/A
PL: Usanin Village (on an island on the upper portion of the World Map...
    he's the one on the right in the house with the 3 Cat People in it)
PA: N/A
MS: No
DE: If you give this Cat person 15 まねきネコ Beckoning Cat (can be purchased
    from the item shop in Minal), he (it?) will show you some special weapons.
    However, note that these weapons will NOT be registered in your
    Collector's Book. He basically shows you the Morphic Irregular weapons
    which you can acquire through Inheriting your equipment, so if you really
    wanna complete that Collector's Book, you have to get these entries the
    hard way. Anyway, it's just a cute little extra if you just want to see
    what some of the Irregular weapons look like.

Name: Hilda's Time to Read
I. Phase: 47 (After you complete the Shrine of Gilione)
C. Phase: N/A
PL: Balka's Harbor
PA: N/A
MS: No
DE: After you acquire the Gilione's power, go to Balka's Harbor and speak to
    the old fortune teller lady who told Veigue his fortune eons ago. If you
    speak to her with Hilda as a on-screen character after that, she can read
    the fortunes of your party members. You can look at the fortunes Hilda's
    given you so far by checking out the Valuable Item タロットカ一ド Tarot
    Card from the Item Menu.

Sub Event #18                                                        [SUBb18]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Salvage
I. Phase: 48 (After you start your journey to patch things up around the world)
C. Phase: 48
PL: Belsas (I believe it's the house all the way at the end of the 1st alley)
PA: 12
MS: No
DE: This Event involves Mauro, the descendent of the legendary pirate, Aifreed,
    who you saved way back when in the prison. You have to do part of this Sub
    Event for the main storyline, but I'm not going to cover the mandatory
    stuff here. Anyway, you can net (ha ha) yourself some pretty nice items
    and the G・トレジャ一ハンタ一 Great Treasure Hunter title for your main
    party for completing this Sub Event, so I'd spend some time sailing if I
    were you.

Here's the procedure for doing a salvage:
1) Press the TRIANGLE button on the world map to bring up the Salvage Map.
2) Draw a line on the map using the L1 button and the right analog stick (R3)
   according to the hint given to you.
3) Decide where another line should intersect by pressing the CIRCLE button at
   that point. You might want to choose an area that is surrounded by water.
4) Move to the point that you picked on the map using the Free Ship.
5) The sea near the point should be glowing, so move so that you're above it.
6) Perform a salvage by pressing the X button. If you're successful, then
   you should get a treasure chest.
7) Once you've lifted up the chest, go and meet with Mauro.
8) If you want him to hand you the next hint, go out onto the World Map once
   and re-enter and he'll have it decoded.

There are 12 Salvage points in all, so to make things easier I present yet
another map found by zer83! For your reference, the @ on the map is the
whirlpool.

http://gamekouryaku.com/tor/data/img/map04.jpg

I'm not sure about this, but since you "know" where the Salvage points are, I
don't think you have to do Steps 2 & 3 but I listed them just in case you do
(or if you just want a challenge, I suppose). Because I'm lazy (I -love-
stealing other people's work, if you haven't noticed ^^), I'm just going to
list the items you'll find at each location and the first part of each hint
given in Japanese on the off-chance that he doesn't give them to you in order.

    could discern that from the entrance of the city is beyond me though).
    After you check out the new stuff in the weapons shop, the accessory and
    item shop will also start carrying a new line of schtuff, such as the
    strongest jewels that can be bought, all of the Status Checks, all of the
    Elemental Wrist accessories, and Grape Gummies (which Pipista has had
    stocked for ages, but whatever...).

Sub Event #20                                                        [SUBb20]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Thick Curtain
I. Phase: 55 (After the appearance of Yuris' Realm)
C. Phase: 55
PL: Pipista (the house where Hack was being kept...near the entrance by the
    weapon and armor shops)
PA: N/A
MS: No
DE: During this Event, you are able to take a peek behind the curtain in the
    house where Hack was tied up. However, you have to complete Sub Event #21
    Hidden Usanin before you are able to do this event. After you do that,
    head to Pipista. Behind the curtain is an ornament that has a connection
    to the Usanin from SE #21, and its reaction will differ depending on who
    your lead character is. Anyway, this Event is just completely random...

1) Complete the mini-game Hidden Usanin at Usanin Village.
2) Enter the Nekonin's house and examine the 「のこの木象」Wooden Saw Statue
   (the heck!?).
3) Go to Pipista and examine the curtain.

===============================================================================
-CJayC, for creating the biggest freakin' game FAQ database ever. And for
tolerating newbies like me. *blush*

-SBAllen...sorry, I didn't realize that the torch had been passed already.

-Bamco, for making such an awesome game. But it sure would be nice if they
would localize it already!

-All of the other Rebirth FAQs, namely Spekio's, Kouli's, and Gyser's. Makes
the Kanji so much more bearable!

-To KusanagiLord02, for letting me copy a significant portion of his Tales
Series Translation FAQ. Thanks for saving me a ton of work!

-To Gyser, for also letting me "steal" a good portion of his Enhance/Inherit
Guide. The less translation I have to do, the better!

-The Tales of Rebirth Official Complete Guide...you would not believe how
much information is in this paperback version of the Philosopher's Stone.

-To the posters on the ToR PS2 board. Especially TopperCop because I know
that you must get sick of correcting me all the time; he's the one who came
up with some of those suggestions for the recipes and verified just about
everything in this thing.

-To Rose for providing me with the url for that Romaji website! It would have
taken me entirely too long to find it myself.

-To zer83, for originally typing out the instructions for the word puzzles
and for providing me with the links for the Discovery Spots, the Salvage Sub
Event, and the ToR World Map.

-To Marta Lualdi for posting the solutions for the word puzzles so that I
could stea...er, "borrow" that last one.

-To Alienor, for being my personal cheerleader despite the lack of
compensation and for helping me with the names of Annie's Skills. ^^

-To RyuHiroshi, for giving me some major help with naming Annie's Skills...I
utterly butchered the German language. >_<

-To Kouli, for translating the new information about the PSP release and for
keeping us updated on the release in general.

-To Kiariy, for pointing out the errors in my description for Sub Event #3...
sorry for all of the confusion!

-To jygting, for giving me permission to borrow Skills/Ougi info from your
guide! ^^

-To neneng, for bringing it to my attention that I went with the wrong
pronunciation for one of Veigue's talismans

-To RPGmonkey, for posting the list of the new Grade Shop options for the PSP
port.

-To lots of Youtubers for pointing out errors in Veigue's Skills & Ougis
Exhibition: Fireguardiancoty, Eliwoodemblem, neneng...I'll fix the mistakes
one of these days.

-To the Namco Tales Boards, for putting up with my annoying spam and dumb
questions. Oh wait, that describes me at every board that I frequent...

-The creators of Swap Magic. They made it all possible initially since I used
to not be able to afford a Japanese PS2. And not like he's probably reading
this, but thanks RS for selling me a JPS2 for a very reasonable price! ^^

-To my loving fans! All...3 of you maybe? And please don't kill me, I'm
getting back to my videos in a minute!

-To Jim Breen's Online Japanese-English dictionary and the Kanji Sonomama
Rakubiki Jiten NDS program...couldn't translate without them!

-To dictionary.com, so that I can at least pretend like I have a bigas...er,
voluminous vocabulary.

-I'm sure I'll think of someone else later. I hope.
