Persona 2: Eternal Punishment ---------------------------------------- Mansearcher Guide by Sasoriza Email- Othros@yahoo.com ---------------------------------------- v. 0.2 (1-15-01): Updated. Fixed a couple of spelling errors here and there, (as well as the dates, argh) and I confirmed when you need to get the rumor needed to start the Mansearcher quests. v. 0.3 (2-19-01): Updated. I've changed the copyrights information a little, did a quick change on the e-mail, and added a question concerning Nekomata. v. 0.4 (2-20-01): Updated. Thanks to MWGribbin, I know the amount of money needed to put Nekomata on the mansearcher list (although I'm not sure if she'll end up automatically on the mansearcher list anyway. I'll have to go and confirm it.) (((--Intro--))) This FAQ is basically nothing more than a Mansearcher Guide that'll aid you in finding the individuals scattered throughout Sumaru City, since some of them can be quite tricky to find. (Not to mention the fact that you waste money getting "hints" from the bodyguard in the Shiraishi Bar. This FAQ will prevent you from doing that.) ___________________________________________________________ (((--How the system works--))) Before you can even open up the Mansearcher quests, you'll have to get the rumor from Rumormonger Toku in the Shiraishi. This occurs when you set off to find Makimura, bring him back to Shiraishi, and talk to R. Toku. He'll give you a rumor concerning the Shiraishi Lady, and once he does this, spread it in Aoba's Kuzunoha Agency. Now, go back to the Shiraishi Lady, talk to her, and you'll finally be able to search. Once the opportunity for the Mansearcher quest begins, (It'll say 'Search' in the list of options once you talk to the Shiraishi Lady) there will be a list of names that you can choose from to search. To choose a name, just put the cursor on the name, and simply press X. Take note that once you pick a name, you won't be able to do anymore searches until you finish the one you've chosen. Also, you'll need to have enough money for the PICK-UP FEE. (In other words, the amount of money necessary in order to start the search.) Now, once you find your desired person, talk to them TWICE. When you do that, there will be a list of choices in this order: 1) Guess Name 2) Talk 3) Nothing Obviously, you have to choose 'Guess Name'. Once you do that, there will be a name-selection prompt, and choose the letters from the prompt to spell out the person's name. I'm sure you know how this works. If you don't, place the cursor over the desired letter you're trying to enter, then press X. (Make sure you spell it out correctly. I think that goes without saying...) Once you're done with that process, go to END. After you guess the person's name, you and he/she will go through a brief conversation. Now, once that's over, go back to the Shiraishi Bar, and talk to the Shiraishi Lady. Collect your reward. (If anyone has forgotten, the Shiraishi Bar is in Hirasaka.) As time passes, more and more names will be addes to the list, and the Pick-Up Fee will increase in price. Of course, the reward will increase in price as well. It's quick and easy cash, too... but be sure to choose your moments wisely, since as soon as you're done finding all 21 people, that's it. The Mansearcher game will no longer be in play. ___________________________________________________________ (((--The People--))) Yes, here we go. The part you've all been waiting for.
