+------------------------------------+
The Xenosaga Madness Project is dedicated to the assembly of a complete guide to 
the Japanese release of the Playstation 2 game _Xenosaga: Episode I_, for 
English speakers. The project was conceived by jetfuel as a way for him to play 
the game early, to practice some Japanese before leaving to study in Tokyo, to 
avoid potentially bad English localization, and most of all to help Xeno fans 
around the world enjoy this fine game in a language more familiar to them than 
Japanese. In the weeks preceding the game's Japanese release, several other fans 
came out of the Xeno web woodwork to lend their talents; their names and 
contributions can be found in the credits section to follow.

In order to play, you'll need the game, of course, a Japanese PS2, and this 
guide. The game and PS2 can be bought at any number of game import shops on the 
net, or at a real shop in Japan, if you're lucky enough to actually live there. 
Go ahead and print this guide out, or have it up on your screen if your computer 
is close enough to your PS2.

For ideal enjoyment of the game, please put away all expectations and 
preconceptions. When faced with an unorthodox decision by the game staff, try to 
accept it. Most of all, remember that this game has been put together by a large 
team of very hard-working people who have done their absolute best to bring you 
a fun game.

There's another Xenosaga Episode I guide out there, authored by one Henry Jerng. 
This guy is really cool and I don't consider our guides to be in competition at 
all. Check his out, as well as his numerous guides to other games. *^_^*

Credit should be given to CJayC, proprietor of GameFAQs, for providing the venue 
through which guides like this one can be distributed to the people who need 
them.

_Xenosaga Episode I_
_Der Wille zur Macht / —͂ւ̈ӎu / The Will to Power_
The game was released in Japan on February 28, 2002, in both regular and 
Limited(LE) editions. The LE contains a book, a keychain, a binder, and a KOS-
MOS figurine; both editions contain the game on a dual-layer DVD for the Sony 
Playstation 2. Monolith Soft, backed by Namco, has developed the game with a 
staff including of a number of members from the original Xenogears team.

Key info used throughout the guide.

This guide makes use of Japanese-formatted text so that you can compare English 
translations with their Japanese counterparts on the game screen. Viewing of 
these characters requires a Japanese OS, Japanese support installed over your 
regular OS, or a special third party application that allows you to read 
Japanese. MacOS 9 and X come with full Japanese support ready to install from 
the CD. On recent Windows releases it should be fairly easy to install Japanese 
support as well. Look around your OS's support sites for more info on this. If 
you haven't got Japanese support, those bits will simply look like garbled crap 
and you can ignore them.

Unless otherwise noted, the following symbols will be used for controller 
commands:
S = Square
T = Triangle
O = Circle
X = X

|        1.1: STORY OVERVIEW         |
+------------------------------------+
As translated from Monolith's site by int and Ashley:

In the year 20XX AD. Through one man's effort, ruins were discovered at Turkana 
Lake, Africa. A very, very ancient relic was found amongst the ruins. The relic 
was later called "Phenomenon Transition System", Zohar. In the distant future 
after the discovery of Zohar, mankind has no choice but to abandon the Earth due 
to a 'certain reason'. In space, 4,000 years after the discovery of Zohar, where 
the memories of Earth have long been forgotten this sets the stage for the story 
of Xenosaga. In this era, the sanctity of humanity is threatened by a mysterious 
existence known as the "Gnosis". The groups of Gnosis exhibit clear hostility as 
they attack humanity. Humanity quickly develops the A.G.W.S. and the Android 
"KOS-MOS" system to combat it (the Gnosis). One woman, the human race and the 
Gnosis find themselves in conflict centered around presence of Zohar.

+------------------------------------+
|      1.2:  CHARACTER PROFILES      |
+------------------------------------+
As translated from Monolith's site by Ashley and jetfuel:

_Shion Uzuki_
Sex: Female
Height: 163cm
Weight: 48kg
Age: 22
Bio: Shion is the head engineer of the "KOS-MOS" project inside Vector, the 
number one development agency.
In the beginning of the story, Shion is dispatched to outer space by Vector, to 
be in charge of the investigation of a planet which has disappeared, and to test 
the KOS-MOS project. The project is being conducted jointly by the government 
and the private sector.
From early on, since her birth, there has been a long history of many wars 
around and in her hometown. Both of her parents are dead, also 2 years ago she 
lost her first love in an accident. It should have been a very tough experience 
for her. However she hasn't been troubled by it very much and she has never 
revealed her hurt feelings to anyone else.
She does everything with a positive attitude. However her attitude tends to be 
taken just as simple optimism. However her positive attitude is really the 
strongest resistance to all the experiences she's had in the past. It's also the 
proof that she is not restrained by the ghosts of her past, and the reason for 
her sheer volition to live today and then tomorrow.
Shion is a woman with "strong and mighty" personality, who tends to push her 
coworkers to move ahead aggressively. Although this quality is also kind of an 
attraction, she denies it about herself. However, as being the KOS-MOS project's 
head engineer, she is thought of as just a Muse. The fact is that she is a 
pretty woman. Because of this many of her male coworkers take a fancy to her.

_KOS-MOS_
Sex: Female
Height: 167 cm
Weight: 92kg
Age: Appearance of approximately 18 years.
Bio: Key girl throughout the Xenosaga series. A female-type battle android 
developed by the galactic conglomerate "Vector". Created without the artificial-
human ReAlien technique, she is a unique being composed entirely of mechanical 
parts.
Created as a battle system for use against the Gnosis by the pilgrimage fleet, 
"KOS-MOS" is a general project title rather than a name. She is devoted to the 
three priorities of logic, the establishment, and duty, and to guarding her 
creator Shion unconditionally. In order to facilitate communication with others, 
she implements a "personality imitation OS".
Her name means "order".

_chaos_
Sex: Male
Height: 169 cm
Weight: 53kg
Age: Appearance of approximately 18 years.
Bio: A key person throughout the Xenosaga Series. Chaos is slender, and always 
wears a gloomy expression. He seems to have some kind of quality that sees 
through everything. His philosophical style of speech is hard for others to 
understand.
He has the appearance of a 16 year old, but his age is
unknown. His amber colored eyes and silver hair make him very special. Choas 
never talks about his past by name. So no one knows his background, including 
himself because of some memory blackouts. This is why, everything about him is 
wrapped with mystery. "Chaos" is his name.


_M.O.M.O._
Sex: Female
Height: 141cm
Weight: 36kg
Age: Appearance of about 12 years.
Bio: The only way to capture a Gnosis is to use a "special observer".  To 
capture the Gnosis an observation-type ReAlien prototype was developed.
Joachim Mizrahi and Juli Mizrahi created the UTIC, a mechanics organization.
Through this they created MOMO (Multiple Observative Mimetic Organicus),
which is modeled after the appearance of Sakura Mizrahi, their deceased
daughter.
By accumulating good deeds, she hopes to fulfill her dream of meeting her
father Joachim in heaven.

_Jr._
Sex: Male
Height: 140cm
Weight: 38kg
Age: Looks about 12years old
Jr. represents the board of directors for the Kukai Foundation. The Kukai 
Foundation is a financial group routed within the independent state of Miruchia. 
Miruchia is a member of the United Federation of Stars.
Jr. appears to be 12 years old. However no one knows his real age. Despite his 
childlike appearance, inside he is just the opposite. He's filled with very 
extensive knowledge. But sometimes he asks very child-like questions, at the 
same time making remarks about the true nature of things.
Collecting old books and rare guns (from our period) is Jr.'s hobby.

|          2.2: EXPLORATION          |
+------------------------------------+
As explained by jetfuel

When running around the various locations of the game, there are a few things to 
keep in mind.

__Movement__
Walk around with the left analog stick, unless you are old-school and you like 
the directional pad. Pushing the stick further in one direction makes your 
character walk faster, then jog, then run. Holding R2 will put you in walk-only 
mode, which is useful for sneaking around enemies. Running into an enemy will 
put you into a battle.

__The O Button__
Hit O to open doors, talk to people, open boxes, take items, hit big red 
switches, read maps, activate cranes, or do pretty much anything else that 
involves interaction with the environment around your character.

__Save points__
The big rotating yellow things are save points, and you can save your game at 
them by hitting O. You may also recover your characters' stats at one by using a 
ƒXƒy[ƒXƒeƒ“ƒg / Space Tent.

__Shopping__
The big rotating silver things are shops. You can buy or sell items and 
equipment there.

__Blowing Stuff Up__
You can use the U.M.N. to blow stuff up. If your character passes by stuff that 
can be blown up, a blue indicator will appear and a sound will play. Hit S to 
blow that stuff up. You may open up new areas, discover items, or encounter 
enemies when blowing stuff up. Some stuff, when blown up, will release some kind 
of temporary ill effect for your enemies on the field (lightning, fire, etc.). 
If you can lure an enemy into one of these, then the effect will be displayed. 
If you then fight the enemy, it will be at an appropriate disadvantage.

__Menu__
You can call up your main menu by hitting T. This menu is explained in detail in 
chapter 2.8.

__Radar__
In the lower right corner, there is a blue radar screen. Your character's 
location and facing are indicated by a red triangle. Enemies are indicated by 
yellow triangles. Non-hostile characters are indicated by green triangles. Yes, 
the red/yellow designation seems counter-intuitive. I guess Japanese have 
different connotations for these colors.

+------------------------------------+
|            2.3: BATTLE             |
+------------------------------------+
As explained by jetfuel

The basics of battle are covered by the in-game tutorial, the translation for 
which can be found in Book 4's Walkthrough. Let's take a look at Xenosaga's 
excellent battle system.

__Attacking__
Basically, you have two kinds of attacks: short range and long range. When it is 
your character's turn in battle, you can choose a target and then hit T to 
execute a long range attack, or S to execute a short range attack. You can keep 
attacking as long as you have AP (Action Points), which is indicated in the blue 
meter near your character's portrait. You may stop attacking by hitting X. Each 
turn you get 4 AP. If you do not use all of your AP in one turn, it will carry 
over to the next turn. Regular attacks take 2 AP each. Sometimes you may score a 
critical hit, which does more damage than usual. In a typical turn, you might 
hit T and then S, thus doing two attacks and using all of your 4 AP for that 
turn.

__Deathblows__
If you have enough AP, you can execute a Deathblow by hitting O. Some Deathblows 
require that you precede them with regular attacks. Check out your Deathblow 
menu to view and edit which attack combinations are associated with which 
Deathblows. As an example, on one turn you might hit T to do a regular, long-
range attack, then hit X to stop attacking and let your AP carry over. On the 
next turn, you hit S, S, O, using all of your 6 AP to unleash a Deathblow.

__Menu__
Instead of attacking on your turn, you can hit X to call up the menu. Hit X 
again to return to the attacks. The battle menu contains the following options:
    _ETHER_
These are your character's "spells". Choose an Ether, then choose a target, if 
required. This uses 4 AP.
    _ITEM_
This lets you use an item. Choose an item, then choose a target. This uses 1 AP.
    _MOVE_
You can move to another location on the battlefield. This affects your attack 
and defense. Characters in the back row will not be able to use, or be hit by, 
physical attacks.
    _A.G.W.S._
Use this to board your A.G.W.S. You will be prompted for a location where you 
would like to deploy.
    _GUARD_
This makes your character guard until her next turn.

__Boost__
The Boost gauge is the red gauge near your AP gauge. It fills up as you attack, 
and once full increments the number next to it and empties again. Boost allows 
you to slip a character's turn into the round preemptively. When a character has 
at least one boost gauge filled, and is not already present in the turn queue at 
the bottom right, you can hold down R2 and a Boost icon will show up. Eligible 
characters will show up around it, and you then hit the appropriate button(S is 
left, T is up, O is right). That character's icon will then be inserted into the 
queue immediately after the current turn.

__G.T.W.__
At the bottom right of the screen is a blue field called the G.T.W., or Group 
Turn Window. It shows a diagram of the battlefield, including all allies and 
enemies. The currently targeted ally or enemy will be indicated by a line, and 
by having its portrait slightly offset in the queue. Enemies are indicated as 
type B (biological), M (mechanical), or G (Gnosis). If you are able to see 
enemies' hit points, they will be displayed here as well. The queue of portraits 
in the middle indicates in what order characters will act during this round of 
battle. At the beginning of a round, icons are put into the queue according to 
one's speed attribute. As turns are taken, the icons file out the left side of 
the queue. Keep an eye on who will be taking the next turn, as you might be able 
to kill a monster right before it attacks, or you might find reassurance in 
knowing that your healing character will have the next turn. Also keep in mind 
that the queue can be altered by the use of Boosts, by both you and your enemies.

__Event Slot__
Next to the G.T.W. is a little slot-machine looking thingie that rolls over each 
turn. It has 4 possible settings, each of which affects in a different way the 
combat that takes place during that turn. The little orange burst increases the 
effectiveness of critical hits. The gold ring-looking thing increases the rate 
at which your Boost gauge fills. The coin looking thing gives you extra Tp and 
Ep points with each kill made on that turn.  The amount of points received 
varies, with a high chance of getting 2 extra points, sometimes 4 extra points, 
and rarely 10 extra points. The blank one does nothing.

At the bottom right of the screen you see the triangle controller character. 
This means press Triangle at any time to sort.

Just select the Ether you want, then the character you want to use it on.
    _ƒZƒbƒg / Set_
The amount of Ether Skills you can use in Battle is marked by Wt 02/12, where 
the second number is the max Ether Skills you can have available during battle. 
Choose available Ethers by placing a check by them.

__•KŽE‹Z Deathblow Menu__
    _ƒZƒbƒg / Set_
To the left are possible button combinations for attacks. You can assign 
deathblows to these button combinations.@ "SetList/HI" slots can only hold 
Deathblows with "HI" speed ratings. "SetList/LW" slots can hold HI or LW 
Deathblows. At the bottom you see@"Žg—p‰ñ” / Times Used" and "“|‚µ‚½‰ñ” / 
Kills" 
stats for each Deathblow. By each button combo: ‹ß / close range; ‰“ / far range.
    _ƒ|ƒCƒ“ƒg”z•ª / Distribute Points_
Each Deathblow has three attributes you can level up: Tech, Speed, and Wait. On 
the right side of the screen, "Lv" is the current level of the attribute and 
"T.Pt" is the number of T.Pts you need to level it up. If you see "UP OK" next 
to an attribute, it can be leveled up. Tech represents the effectiveness of the 
Deathblow. Speed determines in which slots you can set the Deathblow (HI speed 
Deathblows can be used after only one normal attack, while LW speed requires 2). 
(Ashley's personal note: HI speed deathblows are the key to kicking ass in this 
game!)
