~ Hidden in Treasure Chests, Jars, Barrels and Cabinets are many Mini Medals.

  + Whiles you collect them automatically, the "sidequest" aspect is that you can
    only get rid of them by visiting Princess Minnie in her castle.

    - Minnie lives on an Island, so you can only talk to her after you have the
      Magic Ship (when you've completed the TRODAIN REGION).

    - When you have been there once, you can always return by using ZOOM.


  + Important aspects of this quest:
    - Princess Minnie gives you valuable Prizes.

    - It pays to visit her now and again.
      * She'll tell you how many more medals you'll need in order to get another
        prize.

    - SOME OF THE MEDALS CAN BE FOUND ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE BEATEN THE DARK LORD
      COMPLETELY.

    - THAT'S WHEN AN INTERESTING PORTION OF THE GAME IS "UNLOCKED"...

+  1-1.B. PRIZES FOR COLLECTING MINI MEDALS  +
