       INTRODUCTION
     ++++++++++++++++

     Upon his arrival to his hometown, the unnamed teenager has encountered
     several strange phenomena. Everything around stopped and coffins are
     scattered haphazardly along the way. What is more dumbfounding is when
     he was greeted by a mysterious boy inside the dormitory that he will
     be staying.

     During his stay, the dorm was assaulted by a group of dark creatures
     called Shadows. He survived the ordeal when his Persona was awakened–
     a summoned being that is the manifestation of the mind of the user.
     He also discovers that he is not the only one that has that special
     ability.

     He joins a specialized squad of Persona-users and will need to balance
     school life and combating the evil threat that appears only during the
     hidden time called the Dark Hour…

       QUICK START GUIDE (BASICS)                                 QSG100
     ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++                               +++++++


     Alright for the basics. At first, Persona 3 may not look like your
     conventional RPG since aside from the normal dungeon exploring, you
     also need to increase your relationship with other characters as well
     as your own attributes. Your choices to most of the questions asked to
     you will also impact your growth, but not necessarily the progress in
     the story. The game also features very good anime cutscenes and funky
     J-Pop music as your background, giving you more backdrop about the
     environment of the game. The sections here will be discussed in detail 
     in the later parts of this guide. This section is meant to be a 
     quick-start guide for first time players.





    |>>>>..........................DAYS & TIME.......................<<<<|
                                    [QSG101]


     Each day in your ‘life’ is divided into several parts, from early
     morning as you go to school to hours after classes. Most of the time,
     you can’t freely control the flow of time since the game automatically
     goes through it. There are certain points in a day however; that you
     can roam around the location you’re in or through the world map. It
     is still limited though.

     In each day during midnight, the Dark Hour occurs. It’s like the 25th
     hour in the day. It is hidden, and there are only a few select people
     that can roam freely and experience it – like your character and the
     members of SEES. It is also when the evil creatures of the night,
     known as Shadows roam the landscape.

     Try to maximize it to increase some of your attributes. For example,
     if you have lectures in school, answer them correctly and you will
     gain +Charm. Then, you can visit the Shrine, make some offerings
     (for a chance to increase your Academics) then go out with a friend
     after school. During evening, if you won’t visit Tartarus, go to the
     mall. In the early part of the game, there are only two places there
     that you can either increase your courage (Karaoke Bar) or your Charm
     (Café). At night, if your condition is good, study before sleeping to
     increase you academics.





    |>>>>..........................THE WORLD.........................<<<<|
                                    [QSG102]


     In the world map, you can only select the places where you want to go.
     These are actually select areas which you can visit, depending on the
     time of the day. For example, at evening, the only establishment open
     is the Mall. This is just a gist of the different locations in the 
     game. A more detailed 


     GEKKOUKAN HIGH SCHOOL
     ----------------------
     This is your school. It is open MON-SAT except during Sundays and
     Holidays.


     DORM
     ------------------
     This is your "home". All other SEES members stay here. This is where
     you stay and the headquarters of SEES. Your allies have their own
     rooms here. You can save your game by writing in the logbook found in
     the front desk. Here, you will prepare for new missions, talk to your
     teammates. In your room, you can study (to increase Academics
     attribute) before sleeping or just sleep earlier. Note that when
     exploring the Tartarus during the dark hour, your body gets tired.
     Sleeping early will immediately recover your body while studying
     before sleeping can cause sickness or fatigue if do it often.


     NAGASAKI SHRINE
     -----------------
     This is where you can offer some money that will occasionally increase
     your Academics. There is also a stand there where you can have your
     fortune checked. Depending on your luck, your condition could improve
     or worsen and you could also either gain or lose money. You can also
     use this to improve or fix your relationship with your social links.
     In FES, doing these activities will take a whole time period 
     (Afterschool/ Daytime goes directly to evening)

     PAULOWNIA MALL
     -----------------
     This is the only mall in the area and contains a lot of shops. In the
     back door lies an alternate path to the Velvet Room, other than the
     door in Tartus. There are several establishments here where you can
     visit and spend your time after school.


     The shops/establishments you can visit here are as follows:


     POLICE STATION: This is where you purchase your weapons and equipment

     ACCESORY SHOP: This is where you purchase your accesorries.

     ANTIQUE SHOP: Shop where you can exchange gems for cards and rare items

     MANDRAGORA: Karaoke Bar, 800 Yen; Increases Courage.

     CHAGALL CAFE: Coffee shop, 500 Yen; Increases Charm

     CLUB ESCAPADE: Nothing special in the first parts of the game. This is
                    where the strange Monk hangs out if you want to
                    establish a new social link with him.



     PORT ISLAND STATION
     -------------------

     This is the station nearest to your school. There is a movie theater
     here and a flower shop too. In the back alleys lie a gambling house
     and a shadowy bar. Some request items can be acquired there as well.


     MOVIE THEATER: 1500Y, Attribute increase depends on what movie
                           marathon is showing.

     FLOWER SHOP: This is where you can buy flowers that can be used as
                  gifts when dating your girlfriends.




     IWATODAI STATION
     -------------------
     This area has a lot of restaurants and fastfoods where you can spend
     the rest of your afternoon to increase your attributes. This is also
     where the Old Couple and Rival Athlete Social Links can be found.

     Octopia – Takoyaki food stand. You need to buy at least one Takoyaki
               here that will be needed to establish a social link with the
               Girl at the Shrine (Hanged Man arcana)

     Wild-Duck Burger – Eat the specialty here for 500 yen to increase your
                        courage

     Waketsu Rest  – Eat the Prodigy Platter for 680y to increase
                     your academics

     Hagakure Ramen – Eat the Tuna here for 900Y to increase your charm.



    |>>>>.......................THE VELVET ROOM ......................<<<<|
                                    [QSG103]


     In the early parts of the game, the Velvet Room may seem like an
     ordinary, out-of this-world place that only you can enter. But later,
     you will learn that this is the place where you can fuse your Personas.

     There are only two ways to access the Velvet room in the game. First is
     through the door in the ground floor of Tartarus. The second one is
     in the back alley of Paulownia Mall (Under Mandragora Karaoke)


     FUSION OVERVIEW
     -------------------
     You will need to revisit this place as you play to gain access to more
     powerful allies. By default you can just fuse 2 or 3 personas. Later
     in the game, you will have the ability to fuse 4 or more personas.
     Most Personas can only be acquired using this method.

     Fused Personas will be gone forever so remember to register new
     personas so that you can get them later.


     ELIZABETH's REQUEST
     -------------------
     Later in the game, Elizabeth (Igor’s assistant inside the Velvet Room)
     will call you. This will trigger the event where you can now accept
     sidequests from her. There will be rewards for doing this so make good
     use of it. You can cancel any request at any time but there is a
     corresponding fee.

     Some requests have due dates or technically, deadlines. You’ll need to
     complete these quests before the due date ends. If not, you will fail
     the request and won’t get any rewards from it. Another bad thing about
     failing a request is that new requests won't be unlocked.

     For those that don’t have any due dates, you can
     complete it whenever you like. But try not to take too long or the
     reward may be useless to you or you won’t be able to unlock new
     requests. The requests has varying dificulties. The harder the request,
     the better the rewards.

     There are also some new requests in FES where you can date Elizabeth.
     Some requests will require you to talk to your dorm mates on certain
     dates to obtain specific items. 


     COMPENDIUM OVERVIEW
     -------------------
     The Compendium is your persona database. This is where you register new
     personas so that you can recover/ withdraw them in case you'll fuse
     them. Note that WHEN REGISTERING, THE "OLD VERSION" of the persona in
     the compendium will be OVERWRITTEN with the current one you are
     registering. So be careful not to overwrite an already powerful version
     of a persona with a default, low level one.

     The compendium will also allow you to track how many personas have you
     unlocked already. It can be sorted by Arcana or by level, whatever
     works for you.


    |>>>>....................... P E R S O N A S ......................<<<<|
                                    [QSG104]


     OVERVIEW
     -------------------
     These are your means of battling Shadows. Without them, you’re dead
     meat. You will have Orpheus as your starting Persona. As you explore
     dungeons, you will have the chance to acquire more personas (rewarded
     as Cards after a victorious battle though you need to select the
     correct one after it is shuffled), and even have the chance to fuse
     them into one, more powerful being. If you choose the Persona card of
     the Persona you already have, the card will disappear. Note that they
     have their own Arcanas, or basically groups or family where they
     belong to. This defines the type of the persona. Of course, each has
     their own strength and weaknesses.

     Leveling up a Persona will also add bonuses to your stat – which is
     very important. But leveling them up can be very daunting with the
     small experience the enemies give and the very limited time you have
     to explore.

     In battle, you can use the abilities of the Personas you have with you.
     They have their attributes, strengths and weaknesses.
     Keeping different types of Personas during battles will allow you to
     use multiple abilities. There are also special skills known as
     ‘Fusion Spells’. These are combined powers of your equipped Persona
     with another one in your inventory.

     Note that Social Links provide a great role in the growth of Personas
     so make sure you take that seriously.



     FUSING PERSONAS
     -------------------
     As you collect personas, if will be very helpful to fuse them to
     create more powerful ones. You just need to experiment with the
     combinations. The resulting persona will be displayed, including the
     stats and the bonus exp.

     Bonus experience is awarded when you are fusing Personas whose Arcanas
     are unlocked and leveled up already. As mentioned in the ‘Social Link’
     section above, the higher the level of your SL, the higher ranked
     Persona will be created. This applies only to the resulting Persona.
     So it is possible for it to level up a few times past its default
     level as indicated in the fusion table. This is actually good since
     as your Persona levels up, your stats increase. The ‘Commu Link’
     indicates your SLink level. So, if your Commu Link is higher, it is
     possible to get a higher level Persona after the fusion. And, you
     still get the  Stat bonuses PER LEVEL increase. It is still possible
     to fuse Personas whose Arcanas hasn’t been unlocked yet; however,
     there will be no experience bonuses. The highlighted ability is the
     carried over ability from the ‘parent’ personas.

     Also note that some skills won’t be carried over due to the Affinity
     of the Personas. Example, a light persona can’t learn dark spells. Or
     a Physical-type Persona can’t learn magical attacks. Defined skills
     of the resulting persona are NOT DEFINITE. You can change it by
     cancelling the combination screen and selecting the fusion Personas
     -basically repeating the process until you get your preferred set of
     skills before fusing completely.

     The equipped Persona’s affinity defines your character’s elemental
     strengths and weaknesses. The skills you can use in battle depend on
     the equipped Persona as well.


     WEAPON FUSION
     -------------------
     FES offers a new feature that will allow players to fuse Personas with
     rare, raw materials to create the ultimate weapons. These rare 
     materials are called 'Nihil' and they are only dropped by the golden
     shadows. Certain Personas must be combined to create the ultimate
     weapons. More of this will be discussed in detail in a separate section
     of this guide.

       QUICK START GUIDE 2 (COMBAT)                               QSG200
     ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++                               +++++++

     In this section, I will cover the basics of combat. Knowing how the
     battle system of the game will give you the edge against enemies and
     come up with effective solutions in any situation you encounter in
     battle.



    |>>>>....................... BATTLE SYSTEM .......................<<<<|
                                    [QSG201]


     You can only enter battles during the Dark Hour and most of them,
     within the Tartarus. Boss battles may occur outside the Tartarus as
     well. The battle system is TURN-BASED and you allies act on their own.


     BASIC BATTLE COMMANDS
     -------------------

     ATTACK : Attack with equipped weapon. THe main character can equip ANY
              weapon, except for the Gun and Dagger.

     SPECIAL: Use the abilities of your equipped Persona. If the equipped
              persona has a "partner" to produce a fusion spell, you can
              activate it in this menu as well.

     TACTICS: Tactics is where you can issue commands to the whole team or
              to specific members. If you are caught by the enemy alone,
              this is where you can ask for backup as well.

     PERSONA: This menu will allow you interchange between your Personas.
              Changing Personas doesnt take a turn yet it can only be done
              once per turn. View the Personas' status by pressing the
              SQUARE button.

     WAIT   : You will skip your turn, doing nothing.

     RUSH   : Activate it by pressing the TRIANGLE button anytime. This will
              force your characters to attack one target at a time
              physically. Avoid using this if you are facing enemies that
              has physical immunity or resistance.




    |>>>>....................... ENTERING BATTLES ....................<<<<|
                                    [QSG202]


     Your enemies in this game are Shadows. They are located inside the
     Tartarus - this is your school during the Dark Hour. It is a labyrinth
     itself. Its layout inside changes everyday, so it is impossible to map
     it. You will need to explore each floors you have already visited
     before as if it is a new area.

     Shadows will be shown as orange dots in your radar. If you have visual
     on them, you can sneak behind and hit them with your blade. This may
     give you the Initiative in the battle or the game calls, PLAYER
     ADVANTAGE. Your party will get one full turn. The opposite thing can
     happen to you if the Shadow rushes and hits you first. Avoid entering
     a battle with an ENEMY ADVANTAGE since it always means trouble.

     Note also that shadows can’t always chase you around; they have a
     very limited range. This means you can lure a Shadow, and run away
     from it until it stops. Or you can find an elevated place, like
     staircases and they will just turn around, open for a sneak attack.
     Now you will have a sure, clean shot (Keep your distance though).




    |>>>>....................... SEES - YOUR TEAM ....................<<<<|
                                    [QSG203]


     Your exploring party can have up to 4 members, including you. You
     can’t access their status and equipment menu unless you talk to them
     personally. You can’t directly control your teammates since they are
     AI-controlled. However, you can issue specific commands to them like
     providing healing/support or targeting and attacking a specific enemy.

     If you have a teammate that has healing abilities, make good use of
     them. For your starting party, Yukari is the healer. Talk to her to
     heal the entire party. You can issue commands to your whole party
     like splitting up and individually exploring the area. But if their
     levels are low, they can easily fall victim from enemy shadows.




    |>>>>.................EXPLOITING THE ENEMY'S WEAKNESS.............<<<<|
                                    [QSG204]

     Knowing the enemy's weaknesss is really advantageous in every battle.
     Just by knowing it, you ensure the survival of your team against
     stronger foes. Check out the strengths and weaknesses of your allies
     as well in their status menu. Your party composition will later be
     useful against bosses with elemental attacks.

     To know the enemy's weakness, you need to ANALYZE the enemy first.
     This can be done during a battle only and can be accessed from the
     battle menu. Just press L1 to open the command. Select the enemy you
     want to be analyzed. It will take one full turn to fully analyze the
     enemy.

     Note that if the target enemy is destroyed before the analysis
     completes, the analysis will fail.

     Some enemies can be weak to ELEMENTAL attacks and PHYSICAL attacks.


     TYPES OF (PHYSICAL) ATTACKS
     -------------------

     SLASH : This damage is inflicted by heavy swords, one-handed swords
             and daggers.

     PIERCING: Damage inflicted by bows, guns and spears

     STRIKE: Damage dealt by Gloves and Axes



     TYPES OF (ELEMENTAL) ATTACKS
     -------------------

     AGI, MARAGI, AGILAO       - Fire attacks
     BUFU, MABUFU, MABUFULA    - Ice Attacks
     ZIO, MAZIONGA, ZIONGA     - Electric attacks
     GARU, MAGARU, MAGARULA    - Wind Attacks
     MUDO,MAMUDO, MAMUDOON     - Darkness attacks
     HAMA,HAMAON, MAHAMAON     - Light attacks


     ALL-OUT ATTACKS
     -------------------
     If you attack the enemy using a skill it is weak against, it will be
     "downed". While "down", the enemy cannot move and will be vulnerable to
     attacks. You will also get another action. In any instance that you
     "down" all enemies, your party will be able to perform an ALL-OUT
     attack.

     This requires at least 2 party members to perform. It will be stronger
     though, if you have a full party involved. This attack damages all
     enemies and ignores any resistances. Basically, this is the best way
     to end the battle as quick as possible.


    |>>>>..............PARTY CONDITIONS AND STATUS EFFECTS...........<<<<|
                                    [QSG205]


     CONDITIONS
     -------------------

     During battles, there will be always a chance that you will be
     inflicted with status ailments. Also consider you party's physical
     conditions before bringing them to battle.


     :D - GREAT!
        = The character is on top physical condition. His/her evasion and
          critical hit rates is increased significantly.

     :) - GOOD
        = Character is feeling good and normal.

     :( - TIRED
        = The character's offensive and defensive capabilities are
          decreased. He/She may also have difficulties standing up once
          knocked down

     X( - SICK
        = All stats have decreased significantly. Not to mention that the
          character is vulnerable to all status ailments and critical 
          hits. 

     Normally if the main character gets tired or sick, relieving in the
     restroom or sleeping early will always recover his strength. For party
     members, they normally take two nights before getting fully cured.


     STATUS AILMENTS
     -------------------

     CHARMED  - Indicates the target is charmed. A charmed target will
                attack its own allies and will assist the enemy.

     DISTRESS - Target has lowered defense and will not be able to evade
                attacks. The chances of making critical hits on the target
                is increased significantly.

     PANIC    - A panicked character won't be able to summon his/her Persona
                while a panicked enemy can't use skills against you. Chances
                of inflicting critical hits on the panicked target is also
                increased.

     FEAR     - The target has higher chances of getting stunned and its/his
                her attacks will miss often. Chances of receiving critical
                hits are also increased significantly.

     RAGE     - Target will go berserk and will continuously use physical
                attacks. Though his/her/its physical attack rating will
                increase, defense will decrease significantly.

     FREEZE   - Target won't be able to move and evade attacks. This ailment
                lasts only for a day.

     SHOCK    - The target is paralyzed from electric attacks. The target
                cant evade attacks and is prone from critical attacks

     POISON   - A poisoned target will lose a certain amount of HP
                gradually even when taking turns in battle or just walking
                around. The effect doesn't go away with time to use an
                antidote as quickly as possible.



    |>>>>.......................ENEMY TYPES .........................<<<<|
                                  [QSG206]

     We will classify the types of shadows in this section. This is for
     better understanding how to deal with them when you face them.


     COMMON shadows are those normal shadows that you encounter and fight.
     They come in all shapes and sizes. Normally, a larger shadow means
     it has several inside it and the smallest ones normally contain one
     shadow only. Take note of that. 

     STRONG shadows are those glowing with a red/pink aura. These are
     stronger than normal shadows but pack a lot more experience.

     RARE shadows are those -hand types. They are pretty rare since they
     only appear occasionally and they will escape once they spot you.
     These enemies have a very low HP but has high MAGIC resistance and
     evasion rates. Fortunately, they are weak to physical attacks.

     BOSS shadows are self-explanatory. Normally, they are guardians for
     a set number of floors or the entire block itself. Normally, they are
     just those stronger shadows located in the upper floors.

     THE REAPER is a special shadow that will appear only if you have
     stayed in a floor for too long. It is really impossible to beat at
     earlier levels, and even at LV99, this boss can still be a pain in the
     ass. Don't bother fighting this creep until the last parts of the game.



    |>>>>................ REWARDS AND BATTLE SPOILS ..................<<<<|
                                  [QSG207]


     Occasionally after battle, there will be reward cards that will be
     shuffled before your eyes. There are different rewards, ranging from
     additional cash, items, bonus experience, HP recovery and best of
     all, a new Persona. If you choose a Persona card and you already have
     that persona in your list, the card will disappear. So if you already
     have that persona, choose another card instead.

     Also, you will have the chance to "Double UP" your spoils by going
     through another shuffle. In any instance that you select a shattered
     glass card, you will gain nothing. If you are lucky, you can get up
     to 3 consecutive Double Ups, (preferably a Wand card) and you will get
     x4 of your normal earnings.

     NOTE: For the shuffle that brings the cards up and down, take note of
     the order how the cards are pulled up. They will be brought down
     according to that order. Just remember the principle, "First in, first
     out". Once you got hold of that pattern, it will be very easy for you
     to choose your preferred cards.

     Watch the very good anime cutscene at the start of the game. You will
     then find yourself inside the dorm. Just follow the normal course of
     the story. Meet your new friends and the next thing that you’ll know
     is that it is morning already.

     EM – Met Junpei along the way. Had a short conversation beforethe
          first bell rang.
     AM - During the morning lecture, felt sleepy. Needed to choose to
          either stay awake or doze off. Staying awake will increase
          Academics while dozing off will let you rest  and improve
          overall condition.
     PM - After arriving, save and go back to your room.
     DH - Akihiko is chased by something. By the looks of it, it seems
          that he can’t handle it on his own. You will receive a Short
          Sword during this sequence. Due to the circumstances, you have
          no choice but to go upstairs. A few scenes later, you will find
          yourself and Yukari trapped in the top floor.

          After being cornered, your ability awakens. You will be thrown
          into a battle. After that, you will receive your very first
          Persona in the process, Orpheus.

          You will also be transported back into the Velvet Room. Here,
          you will learn more about Social Links.

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     AS - You will find yourself in the hospital. It has already been
          several days since the incident and you are just sleeping. In
          any case, just read through the conversation with Yukari and the
          game will proceed automatically.

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Conversation with Yukari
     AM - History class with Mr. Ono. Choose 1st answer (Mud Huts). Get + 
          Charm.
     PM - Save your game, then directly to the 4th floor. (Buy a Mad Bull 
          drink and 20 cielo mists from one of the vending machines; this 
          will be used later for unlocking an arcana and completing a 
          sidequest) Learn more about the strange stuff happening. You 
          will join the meeting and will be given the choice to join the 
          team. You will gain the power of the Fool Arcana.
     DH - Conversation with the weird kid.

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     PM - No school. When night comes, an unexpected visitor arrives. He
          will be staying in the dorm as well. Coincidentally, he too has
          awakened his own Persona. Other than that, everything is
          uneventful.

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - The usual morning gossip.
     LN - Mitsuru will visit your class. Short conversation.
     PM - Evening comes and the meeting starts. After Junpei’s confirmation
          of joining, you will learn more about what they plan to do.
     LN - Scene.
     DH - You will visit the Tartarus for the first time. Read through the
          scenes. Save using the clock found in the entrance. The door
          there leads back to the Velvet Room. You may visit it for
          additional information.




     Tartarus
     --------------------

     Now, you will have the chance to explore the Tartarus. It is a
     labyrinth itself and it changes its layout everyday, so creating a
     map for it will practically be useless.

     For this day, you will only need to explore the whole 2F. Enemies
     respawn in the area so be careful. Your objective for this mission is
     to explore the area and find the transporter in the floor. Save by
     the wall clock located just past the Velvet Room’s entrance.

     Follow through the battle tutorials and get a hold of a party battle.
     Remember that your teammates will act freely by default. You can
     order them around if you want.

     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.
     | TIP: Make it  a habit to analyze enemies when you first meet them.|
     | Have the advantage in battle by exploiting their weaknesses!      |
     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.


     Just explore the area normally, defeat a good number of enemies.
     Mitsuru will provide backup and intel from the entrance. Find the
     portal and exit the place when ready. This is a good time to obtain
     the Pixie and Apsaras personas.

     Before you exit the Tartarus and after the conversation with your
     team, your Social Link with them will increase by 1 level. You can
     now also enter the Velvet Room to fuse personas. Make sure you read
     the basics as well.

     Once ready, leave the area.

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Conversation with Kenji Tomochika
     AN - You will feel sleepy because of the exploration of the Tartarus.
          You will have the chance to recover by dozing off or increase
          your academics by staying awake, but further tiring yourself.
          Make a selection.
     AS - Now you will have some free time to explore the world and the
          school. Try talking to as much people as possible and get
          familiar with all parts of the school. Exit and you will have a
          scene with Akihiko sempai.

          You will need to meet him by the Police Station in Paulownia
          Mall. Proceed there.You can check out the shops if you want, but 
          you can do much unless you go to the police station first.

          In the police station, after a short chat, you will now have the
          chance to purchase equipment. Akihiko will give you ¥5000 Grab
          what you can afford and leave the area.

          Now you can check out all the places. Remember that entering some
          places that can affect any of your attributes (Charm, Courage
          and Academics) may spend your time quickly that you’ll be in the
          part of the day (e.g Evening) once you get out. There are also
          some other establishment that opens at night only.

     PM - You can now go out at night. However, the only open place would
          be the mall. Inside it, the Pharmacy, videoke and club are the
          only ones you can visit. There will be also an alternate door
          leading to the Velvet Room, in the exit beneath the Videoke Bar.
          Back in the dorm, save, and check your status and either decide
          to explore the Tartarus or go back to your room.

     LN - You can decide whether you want to study before sleeping or
          sleep earlier. Choosing the first will increase your academics
          but will tire you more.

     EM - Conversation with Kenji
     AS - Kenji will ask you to eat ramen after school. Accept or decline.
          Accepting his offer will unlock the Magician Arcana.
     PM - Check status. Visiting the Tartarus tonight will depend on
          everybody’s health. Save, sleep or study.

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - hear the gossip about the school’s athletic teams. They are open
          for new members. You may consider joining with one soon.
     AS - You can either join one athletic team of your choice (Kendo,
          Swimming and Track ‘n Field) and gain the Chariot  Arcana
          (it doesn’t matter which team you’ll choose) or Talk to Kenji
          inside your homeroom to hang out with him after school.

          For the athletic clubs, you can only join either the track and 
          field, swimming and kendo teams. However, no matter which team 
          you choose, you will always get the Chariot Arcana. Also, no 
          matter what team you join, Yuko will always be the manager while 
          Kazushi will always be the leading athlete. Sometimes, you will 
          also find Yuko near the school entrance after practice. You will 
          have the option to talk to her and then walk home with her. You 
          may need to increase your COURAGE first before she gives in.

     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.
     | TIP: Before talking to a friend you want to go out with, its      |
     | better to have a persona that matches their arcana. For example,  |
     | before talking to Kenji,you can bring in a nekomata with you. That| 
     | way, your social links will tend to level up faster.              |
     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.

     PM - Save, check everybody’s status and talk to Mitsuru to head out
          to the Tartarus. Your choice.
     LN - Study or sleep early. (Skip this part when going to the Tartarus)

     DH - Explore Tartarus. (Skip this part when you decided to stay home.)
          During this exploration, you will have another set of tutorials 
          about spell fusion and stuff.

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Overhear conversation about the new punching game in the arcade. 
          It says it will increase your strength. The games in the arcade 
          also depend on what day of the week. (Refer to the Places section
          PLC001)
     LN - Conversation with Kenji. You may accompany him after the class
          ends.

     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.
     | TIP: If you had your SLink with Kenji leveled at 4, he will then  |
     | give you a hint about the so-called ‘Gourmet King’. This is       |
     | actually a new person you can make friends with but you need to   |
     | have your Charm to be Unpolished at least. (LV2)                  |
     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.

     AS - You will have an option to either talk to Kenji (choosing the
          correct response in your conversations later on will further
          increase the rank for the Magician Arcana) or join a club.

          You will have an option to either talk to Kenji (choosing the 
          correct response in your conversations later on will further 
          increase the rank for the Magician Arcana) or Talk to Kaz to 
          increase the rank of the Chariot Arcana

     PM - Visiting Tartarus tonight will entirely depend on the status of
          your characters. If any of you are not well, sleep/ study for
          the night.


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  4/25   \                                                / SAT |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Overhear a conversation about the used books store in Iwatodai
          Strip Mall.
     AS - Since it is your free time, you can visit the temple, make some
          offerings and get your fortune. So far, this will give you
          chances to increase your attributes, improving your condition
          and even find some Yen. It doesn’t consume that much time too.

          Anyways, head to Iwatodai and find Bookworms, the used books
          store you heard just this morning. Talk to the old couple
          inside. You will then get a hint about the Persimmon Tree
          inside the school. If you have managed to explore the school,
          you should’ve come across to this tree already. If not, it is
          located in the yard, just before the athletic rooms.

          Make your way back to the school and examine the Persimmon tree.
          You will get the Persimmon Leaf from it. If you can still can,
          bring the leaf to them and you will unlock a new social link for
          the Hierophant Arcana. From now on, you can just visit them when
          you have the chance to level up your social link with them.

     PM - Check everybody’s status and visit the Tartarus if you want.
     LN - If you decide not to explore that Tartarus, a friend will call
          you. In this case, Kenji called and offered to hangout tomorrow.


      -------.                                                   ------

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     DT - If you decide to hangout with Kenji, then your whole day will be
          taken. You will have the chance however, to further increase the
          Magician social link with him with proper answers during your
          conversations.
     PM - You may want to visit the Tartarus during this time. Otherwise,
          go back to your room, study or sleep.


      -------.                                                   ------

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Early morning conversation as usual.
     LT - Mitsuru will arrive in the room. She will then talk to you about
          a “special request”
     AN - Another lecture. Answer the question correctly to increase your 
          Charm.

          Q: When are the numbers invented?
          A: 6,000 years ago (by the Sumerians)

     AS - Accept Mitsuru’s request if you want.. With this offer, you will
          have the chance to unlock another social link. But go to the
          faculty area first in the first floor.

          Anyways, after talking to your advisor, head back to the Student
          Council room. This is located just across your homeroom. Meet
          your new friends. You will now unlock the Emperor Arcana.
     PM - Check status. Decide to stay or explore the Tartarus.



      -------.                                                   ------

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Conversation with Mitsuru. Will get a reminder from her.
     LT - If you have stuck with Kenji’s May-December love story, then you
          will know how is the overall progress. He will approach you
          during lunchtime to talk about “something”
     AS - During this time, Kenji will successfully ask his beloved
          teacher out. Also,  just be nice to him and you will increase
          your Magician Arcana rank by 1.
     PM - Junpei will ask you if you love to play video games. If you
          answered yes, then receive a copy of the game called “Innocent
          Sin”. You will need to play this during weekends. As usual,
          check status, visit Tartarus if you can. Otherwise, study.


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  4/29   \                                                / WED |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     DT - If you don’t have any appointments, this is the best time to
          either study or play MMORPG. If you chose to study, then your
          Academics will increase. Logging in to the PC and playing MMORPG
          will allow you to meet an online friend named Maya. If you
          choose your replies carefully, she may trust you at the first
          instant. This will also unlock a new Social Link; the Hermit
          Arcana. Note that playing MMORPGs will take the whole day; evening
          phase is skipped and the game automatically takes you to the
          next day. 
     PM - check status; go back to room to study or explore. (Skip this
          part if you chose to chat with Maya. Staying online with her
          will take one whole day)


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  4/30   \                                                / THU |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     AN - You will be sleepy at this point. Listen to the lecture
          (+Academics) or doze off. (Rest to recover condition)
     AS - You can either talk to Kenji or visit the SC.
     PM - Your phone will ring. After learning it is a call from
          Elizabeth, leave the Dorm and head to the Mall. Exit to the door
          under the Karaoke bar. You should find an alternate path leading
          to the Velvet Room.

          Elizabeth will be providing sidequests now. Take note of the
          ones with deadlines and those free requests. You can only have
          three requests active at  a time. You can cancel them anytime
          with a fee of course. More details about this info have already
          been discussed in the ‘Getting Started’ section above. You can
          also check out the Elizabeth's Requests section (ELR000) of the
          guide. 


     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.
     | TIP: For the requests that requires you to collect shadow drops,  |
     | you need to accept first the specific request before the target   |
     | enemy drops the needed item. In every visit to the Tartarus, make |
     | it your personal objective to reach the terminals. This will be   |
     | your checkpoints so that you don’t need to start from the bottom. |
     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.



     -Tartarus-

     Inside Tartarus, note that there is always a Mini-Boss in every 5th
     floor. The main boss is usually located second to the last area.
     There are also “Terminals” on those floors which acts like
     checkpoints. You may want to return to the entrance to recover your
     HP/SP and save as well; however, note that if any of your party
     members are tired, they will leave the party immediately to return
     back to the dorm – which will exclusively mean that you need to
     comeback later.

     So if you are confident  about your character’s abilities, take the
     gamble and face the boss(es).

     Also, in floors 6-15, a Grave Beetle will occasionally show up. From
     the outside, they won’t look any different than ordinary shadows so
     if you don’t really hunt them, you will have a hard time finding them.
     Use Garu (wind) against it to win without any hassles. Defeating them
     will not always guarantee that you will get a Beetle Shell, just like
     Elizabeth requested but encountering them is better than none.

     Here are the quick rundown and basic strategies for every boss in
     Block 1.



     (5F) Venus Eagle x3 
     --------------------
     Exp: 40
     Item(s): Empress Mask (x3)

     You should already know that when dealing multiple tough enemies, it
     is always a good idea to concentrate on one enemy at a time. Their
     weakness are piercing attacks – so you will want to have Yukari
     attack often. You may force her to attack a target you specify while
     you take care of the support/healing. These enemies are weak to ICE.
     (Bufu, Mabufu)


     (10F) Dancing Hand x3
     --------------------
     Exp: 70
     Item(s): Mazio Gem (x3)

     Just like ordinary “-hand” enemies, these enemies are weak against
     fire. Consider using Agi against them, coupled with physical attacks.
     Not much of a problem, just take them on, one by one.


     (14F) Rampage Drive
     --------------------
     Exp: 100
     Item(s): Balm of Life

     This could be one tough boss. Make sure that you have the best
     equipments you can afford at the moment. It will be hard to identify
     its weakness because it can nullify and deflect physical attacks.
     Using Lightning attacks seems to deal more damage to it than any
     other spells. Make sure to set Yukari as your healer/support while
     have Junpei concentrate on attacking. You could do either way.

     Also if you levels are high enough, low levels enemies will avoid
     you. Fighting them will be a waste of time since they don’t have that
     much experience to reward you with.



      -------.                                                   ------
     |  5/1   \                                                / FRI  |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Conversation with Yukari
     AS - Conversation with Junpei. You will have the chance to come or
          not. After that you the three of you will be inside the
          hospital.
     PM - Check status and calendar then plan ahead. There will be a long
          weekend because of the holidays. Go to the Tartarus if you want
          or stay home and study.


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  5/2   \              !!SIDEQUEST - PINE RESIN !!       /  SAT  |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Overhear a conversation about Tanaka’s Show and the Sunday Sale.
     AS - Visit  any place you want. You will also find Chihiro, one of
          your colleagues in the Student Council, in front of the billboard.
          Talk to her and depending on your response, this may be a start
          of a new err… friendly relationship. You will find her in front
          of the billboard from time to time, after school, usually every
          TUE, THU and SAT. Note that if your charm is still LV1, you won’t
          be able to ask her out. Try to get to LV2 (Unpolished) at least
          to get her attention.
     PM - Accept Elizabeth’s request # 92 and talk to Yukari to obtain Pine 
          Resin. Go to the mall and hand over the resin to complete the 
          quest. You may also want to accept Elizabeth’s request #56. 
          (Bring her to the mall)

          During evenings and you don’t have plans to visit the Tartarus,
          you can always check out the Mall. So far the Club, Coffee Shop
          and the Karaoke are the only ones open. You can spend your time
          there until late night.

          Also, after visiting those, you can always study before sleeping,
          further increasing your attributes – as long as you’re not tired.
     DH - As you are sleeping, you will get a visit from the weird kid. He
          will warn you about the full moon, one week from now. After
          that, the next day will start as normal.


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  5/3   \                                                /  SUN  |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     DT - During the daytime, turn on your TV and you will be able to
          watch TV shopping with Tanaka. This is like your typical Shop
          TV where you can obtain really good and rare items, so long as
          you have cash. This won’t consume a day period so make it a
          “habit” during your free Sundays. It takes two days for your
          item to be delivered.

          You can play Innocent Sin to increase your relationship with
          Maya. (Hermit Arcana) Otherwise, check out the shops and the
          places. Some shops go on sale on specific days and their
          inventory may change as well. Plan your destinations well since
          once you’re out of the dorm, it will always be evening when you
          return, no matter how short you spent your time outside.


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  5/4   \                                                /  MON  |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     DT - You will have your free time during this day since it is the
          start of the consecutive holidays. Spend your time checking out
          shops. The locations you can visit may be limited since if will
          always be the next part of the day (evening) after entering in
          one of them.
     PM - Check if you have anything you want to do, otherwise save, then
          go back to your room.
     LN - You may get  a call from a friend at this time. Its up to you to
          decline the offer or spend the whole day tomorrow with that
          person. (at this point, it could probably be Kenji)


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  5/5   \                                                /  TUE  |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     DT - Spend the day as usual. If you are hanging out with a friend,
          carefully select your  answers during your conversations to
          further increase your social link rank.
     PM - As mentioned above, you can visit the Mall, go back to your mall
          or decide to leave for the Tartarus. You decide.


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  5/6   \                                                /  WED  |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------


     EM - Overhear a conversation about this kid that is hanging out in the
          shrine.
     AM - Lecture; Answer the question correctly and your charm will 
          increase (Soft Water)
     AS - Free time. I suggest checking out the girl in the shrine. After
          making some offerings and checking your fortune, talk to her,
          just by the monkey bars.

          She will then ask something to eat and drink. Give her a Weird
          Takoyaki. These can be bought from the Iwatodai Strip Mall,
          by the entrance. Then, give her a Mad Bull, which can be bought
          from the dorm’s vending machines. If you don’t have these right
          now, you can always come back later. She will always be there in
          the Shrine except Sundays. You will need to come back later for
          her to completely open up to you. You will establish the
          Hanged-man Arcana with Maiko. Increase it by playing with her
          after school.

     PM - If you still haven’t finished the second and third quests, then
          this is the time to do so. Note that the deadline is 5/8. Visit
          the Tartarus if you want.. Note that you need to defeat the
          Block 1 boss (Rampage Drive) first before getting the old
          documents 01 in 16F.


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  5/7   \                 !! DEADLINE !!                 /  THU  |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     LT - Kenji and Kazushi will both talk to you.
     AS - You can either talk to Kenji or Kazushi. Hanging out with Kenji
          will improve your rank for Magician Arcanan while training with
          Kazushi will further increase your rank in Chariot Arcana. I
          suggest balancing it out.

          After the training, you will see Yuko by the entrance. You may
          talk to her and walk home with you but if your charm is not
          that high, she will just refuse.
     PM - I suggest saving up your strength since the full moon is near. 
          Visit the mall and spend your time there instead. Today is the 
          deadline for the requests so make sure you completed them before 
          sleeping.
     LN - Study or Sleep early.


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  5/8   \                                                /  FRI  |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     LT - Hidetoshi from the student council will talk to you. You may
          want to attend the student council meeting after class.
     AS - Go to the SC room. After a brief conversation, your rank for
          the Emperor Arcana will increase.
     PM - Same routine;


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  5/9   \                   FULL MOON                    /  SAT  |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Conversation with Akihiko.
     AS - The game will automatically take you to the Dark Hour.
     DH - After a brief conversation, you will need to check out the
          Monorail. You won’t be able to save here so be careful with your
          actions. But if you did spent time leveling up your characters,
          then there should be no problems.


     MONORAIL BRIDGE

     Just continue forward once you have control. Once you reach the
     monorail itself, read through the conversation and you will find
     yourself inside. You will start from the 10th/11th carriage.
     Continue forth. You will encounter one of the new shadows. After that, 
     you will be ambushed by two enemies. Get rid of them quickly. More 
     enemies will appear. Junpei will chase them. Follow him.

     Once you caught up with Junpei, defeat the remaining enemies.
     There will be a 7 minute timer that counts during battle. Make sure
     to exploit the enemies’ weaknesses so that you guys can perform all
     out attacks. After some more conversations, make your way to the 1st
     car. Make sure that everybody is in full health, then face the first
     ‘chapter’ boss.


     BOSS:  Priestess
     ----------------
     Exp: 304
     Item: Diamond

     The boss is not that hard as long as your level is high enough to
     endure most of her attacks before having to heal. If you want to
     play it safe, you can order Yukari to provide the Healing/ Support
     while Junpei attacks. You can switch between those two roles whenever
     the situation calls for it.

     The boss will then summon two Tiaras. She will keep on summoning
     them, no matter how many you kill. Your allies will tend to attack
     the tiaras (which are obviously meant as decoys) if their action is
     set to act freely. Force Junpei to target the boss. Get rid of one
     Tiara and leave the other. Ignore it since it does not deal that much
     damage.

     Just keep on attacking; remember that you still have the timer active
     here. Just read through the conversation. Your team’s relationship
     has become stronger with this encounter.

     |  5/10  \                                                /  SUN  |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------


     EM - You will receive a call from Elizabeth. You will learn that the
          previously blocked path in floors 16+ is now accessible.
     DT - Do whatever you want for this Sunday. You can study, play MMORPG
          (spends whole day, +1 Hermit Arcana) or go out  and visit the
          shops.
     PM - You can still go out to the Mall. The shops open here are the
          Videoke bar (which you can’t access during weekends because it
          will be full), the pharmacy and the coffee shop.  You can also
          visit the Velvet Room from the Mall’s rear exit first before
          doing anything.

          Once you enter the Velvet room, you will learn about some new
          menus here. One includes the Compendium. On simpler terms,
          this will be considered as the Persona database. You can
          register your latest collection of Personas here. The
          registered personas here can be ‘revived’ or ‘bought’ again
          with a fee. The price depends on the level of the Persona
          you are trying to recover from the records. It is recommended
          to register Personas before Fusing them and after you get a
          new one, not previously registered in the database.

     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.
     | TIP: Note that they Compendium takes note of EVERY CHANGES. That  |
     | means that it is possible that you will overwrite a Persona with  |
     | good stats with the Persona with the same name but lame stats. So |
     | be careful on what you want to register.                          |
     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.

     LN - Depending on your condition, you can either study or sleep
          early. If you are tired or sick, don’t bother studying since you
          won’t learn anything and your condition may get worse.

          leveling up your personas along the way.

     | strange concoction. Drink the weird stuff and though you won’t get|

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     DT - Free day unless you have planned to meet someone during this
          time.


     -TARTARUS-

     Some of the enemies in this block you should be careful when facing
     are the Beastial Wheel and the Steel Gigas. The first one appears
     only alone and the latter appears by two’s or worse three of them.
     They have high endurance, not to mention high attacks as well. A
     critical hit from them can usually take a character out, even in full
     HP. Use Zio/Garu attacks vs the Beastial Wheel while use Zio against
     the Hulk-Hogan wannabes.


     (25F) BOSS: Crying Table (x3)
     -----------------------------
     Exp: 88 EXP
     Item(s): Vibrant Cloth (x3)

     These enemies’ weakness is Ice. Use Bufu, better yet Mabufu. It was a
     tough battle when using three characters only but this will be better
     if you are on full force. Don’t bother hitting it with physical
     attacks since they can nullify it. In a full party, order Akihiko and
     Junpei to attack the target while Yukari and you provide support
     attacks and healing.


     (36F) BOSS: Change Relic
     ----------------------------
     Exp: 236 exp
     Item(s): Coin of Queen

     There is really no quick way to defeat this enemy. If you are around
     LV16, you can endure most of its attacks. Its attacks are mostly
     party based, which means it can target all party members most of the
     time. As much as possible, try to equip a Persona with the skill
     Media. Take care of the healing and recovery and force the other two
     guys to attack the target. Akihiko will be the one to deal most
     damage here because of his Persona’s Sonic Punch. Order Yukari to
     take care of the healing as well.


      -------.                                                   ------

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Conversation with Yukari
     LT - You will be checking out the exam results. Depending on how many
          correct answers you have provided, you should get a high score as
          well. Your classmates will take notice of this and your Charm
          will increase.
     AN - Lecture with Ms. Toriumi’s class. You’ll feel sleepy. Just
          choose whether you want to stay awake or doze off.
     AS - Free time. If you still haven’t caught up with the Gourmet King
          in Paulownia Mall, now is the best time to do so. To go to the
          mall immediately, just talk to one of your classmates standing
          near the entrance.

     Your charm should be at least Unpolished already. If so, talk to the
     fat kid. You will then need to answer a mini-quiz before convincing
     him. Note that the questions are not random; they are fixed, so
     trial-and-error is possible but time consuming. If you answered
     incorrectly, you will only have one quiz day.

     Or you can refer to the answers below:

     Q1: Chagall Café’s specialty?
     A: Pheremone Coffee

     Q2: Color of the Wild-Duck Burger Mascot
     A: Green

     Q3: Hagakure secret dish
     A: Hagakure Bowl

     After you answered the questions correctly, you will also need to
     give him something that he hasn’t tasted before. Give him the Odd
     Morsel found in Tartarus’ 15F+. You will be able to unlock the Moon
     Arcana. Now, if you want to hangout with Nozomi, he will be sitting
     in the bench in Paulownia Mall after school.

     Since this won’t consume a part of the day, you can go back to school
     and strengthen the other links you have. I suggest going to practice
     with your athletic team for this day. (+1 Chariot Arcana)

     After the practice, you should find Yuko by the entrance. If you have
     tried this before and she turned you down, try asking her out this
     time. After hanging out in the Chagall Café and depending on your 
     responses, you will gain Yuko’s trust and friendship. You will unlock 
     the Strength Arcana.

     PM - Mitsuru won’t be there so depending on your condition, you can
          visit the Mall and spend some time in the Videoke or the Café
          again or just sleep early.

     EM - Conversation with Junpei
     AS - You’ll find Chihiro outside. If you have asked Chihiro out the 
          last time you talked to her, talk to her again and she will then 
          agree to walk home with you. You’ll unlock the Justice Arcana. 
          This is your free time also, so do whatever you like.
     PM - Talk to Mitsuru to get Fencing Epee. You may visit Elizabeth to 
          obtain your reward.Junpei won’t be here so decide whether you’ll 
          want to push through with only Aki and Yukari to explore Tartarus.

          increased to LV3+, she will then give out a hint about this
          ‘man who talks like a woman at the train station’
     PM - The ‘Big Night’ will be tomorrow, so if you are in good shape,
          visit Tartarus to train some more. Or if you are confident about
          your character’s levels, then sleep early to have some rest.

     LT - Scene at  the faculty room. Meet Natsuki, the "B"
     AN - More scenes. Emergency meeting for tonight’s operation
     AS - Free time. More scenes.
     PM - Operation starts. Make your way to the Faculty office to find
          the Gym Key
     DH -  After a few more scenes, you will find yourself inside Tartarus,
           separated from the others. The mysterious boy will appear.=


     -Tartarus-


     After having the control, I suggest  avoid fights for the meantime.
     Collect the items if you want. Just make your way to the third floor.
     You will meet Junpei and Akihiko. After a few conversations, you will
     then meet Fuuka. After some more scenes, learn that there is trouble
     in the ground floor. During this event, Fuuka’s Persona will awaken.
     You will also need to fight these two bosses. Fuuka will aid you in
     this battle, as support. Her Analyze skill is much powerful and
     effective compared to Mitsuru.

     BOSS: Empress and Emperor
     Exp: 1525exp
     Item(s): None


     This battle is easy. Take note that the empress is immune to ANY
     magic attacks but is weak to ANY physical attacks. The opposite is
     true for the Emperor. To make this battle quicker, you need to use
     All-out attacks whenever you can.To do this, (which you can do the
     other way around as well) Attack the Emperor with a magic attack to
     knock down. Once you get one more action, attack the Empress with
     physical weapons. The battle should be over in no time.

     After a few more conversations, DH will end.

     New Tactic: Knock Down

     PM - You can spend some time in the mall here since you can’t visit 
          Tartarus at the moment. Your character could be tired as well. 
          The Antique Shop has opened! In fES, you can fuse weapons now. 
          You’ll need to collect Nihil weapons to fuse. These can be found 
          by defeating golden shadows (As long as you don't have an active
          "medal" request from Elizabeth). The owner will give you one 
          Nihil Sword to start with. New requests are available as well.
     LN - Sleep early to regain strength

          request for “A shell of a man.”) You can also ask Elizabeth for 
          a date to complete her request. Going out on a date with her 
          won’t consume the whole afternoon so you can still go out with 
          your other friends.

     PM - Call from Elizabeth, regarding the changes within the Tartarus.
          (You can explore the upper floors) Talk to Fuuka if you want to
          visit the Tartarus this night. Check out the new requests
          once you have the chance.


     -Tartarus-

     You can now use Mitsuru as an active party member! Again, find your
     way to the terminals first, save then either continue up or hunt the
     specified shadows in the requests. Make sure that all your party
     members are well equipped and don’t forget to analyze each new enemy
     you’ll encounter. This will greatly help you in battle. You can also
     store 10 Personas once you get to level 20.


     (47F) BOSS: Golden Beetle (x3)
     ----------------------------
     Exp: 190
     Item(s): Beetle Horn (x3)

     Nothing much about these bosses; use –zio skills against them,
     preferably Mazio to hit all of them and to have the chance to perform
     all-out  assaults.


     (59F) BOSS: Intrepid Knight
     ----------------------------
     Exp: 508
     Item(s): Sword of Queen

     This boss is quite tough, but since he has no elemental weakness or
     strengths, pummel him with attack skills. As usual, order Yukari to
     take care of healing/ support while the others are set to act freely
     or Assign target.

     | TIP: To complete Elizabeth’s request # 16, make sure you visit the|

     | TIP: Occasionally, if you have stayed in a floor for long, a very |
     | powerful Shadow, called the Death or Reaper will appear and engage|
     | you into battle. YOU CAN’T WIN AGAINST IT for the meantime. So as |
     | much as possible, avoid it.                                       |
     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.

     If you did enter battle with it, hope that your character is not
     targeted. Most of Death’s attacks are instant-death effects and if
     your character dies, it’s Game Over. Escape it.

     Usually, Fuuka will warn you if Death is coming. You will also hear
     some clattering chains and you should see a moving orange dot in the
     map, heading towards your position. Find the stairs or portal
     quickly.

     AS - Free time; If your courage is maxed out (LV6-Badass), find Fuuka 
          and talk to her. She will ask for your help, particularly to 
          become her guinea pig. After tasting her food, try to encourage 
          her and you will unlock the Priestess Arcana. Try to max out your 
          Academics to get, in my opinion, one of the hottest girls in the 
          school. Yup, Mitsuru-sempai. :D

     | TIP: When you reach the maximum level of a specific Social Link,  |
     | you will be able to forge the Ultimate form of the Arcana attached|

     | broken”, that basically means that whatever you do, the link won’t|
     | Reverse. And that also means that your “time” with them is over,  |
     | which means when you talk to them from now on, they will just be  |
     | normal NPCs. Some will leave for good as well. It may be sad but  |
     | at least you will have more time to concentrate on your other     |

     EM - Conversation with Yukari
     AS - Free Time**

     If your Social Rank with Yuko is at least level 4, she will mention a
     monk that hangs out in night clubs. Since there is only one night
     club in the city, go there after school. Make sure that your courage
     is at least level 3 or Tough.

     Find the monk inside Club Escapade, upstairs in the VIP lounge or
     something. Talk to him first, then go down and talk to the bartender.
     He will ask for your help to get  all the orders of the customers
     inside the club. There are only four orders you need to take; however,
     the customers will tend to change their minds, the game’s attempt to
     confuse you. If you want, you can just jot it down in a piece of paper.
     But if you want it quick, you can just refer to the orders below. I
     don’t know if this is randomized in other game files though…

     (Just ignore the girl sitting near the bartender)

     Dancing Girl – Screwdriver
     Dancing Guy – Oolong Tea
     Sitting Girl at the back – Bloody Mary
     Girl in front of the table - Margarita

     Talk to the bartender and give the correct orders. Once you got them
     all correctly, talk to the Monk. You will be able to unlock the Tower
     Arcana! The monk is in the club during THU, FRI, SAT, SUN.

     AS - Free Time; but since the full moon is tomorrow, I suggest
          visiting the officer Kurosawa in the Police Station in Paulownia
          Mall. Upgrade all your team mate’s equipment and try to stock
          some healing items as well. If you have some gems to spare, try
          to exchange it for some useful items and cards inside the

     EM - Conversation with Fuuka
     DH - The day will pass by and you will enter the Dark Hour immediately.

     After a brief scene, choose your party members and head out. Yukari
     will be a fixed member in this mission. You will start inside a motel
     in Shirikawa Blvd. Not much to do here for the meantime so just find
     the stairs and head to the 3rd floor. Once there, find a large door.
     The boss is there.


     BOSS: Hierophant
     Exp: 3026
     Item(s): None
     Nul: Light, Darkness
     Repel: Lightning

     This boss can Charm your party members which can cause a lot of
     problems if not taken care of immediately. If you some Me Patra Gems,
     they will prove handy in this battle.

     Just attack it with everything you got, except for the elements
     mentioned above. This battle is easy, actually; but I hope you won’t
     be surprised to know that this is not the only boss here.

     After the battle, examine the large mirror in the wall. Another weird
     thing will happen and a sexy cutscene will take place. After that,
     you will find yourself inside one of the sleazy rooms of the hotel.
     A voice in your head will entice you about some really “tempting”
     stuff. Well, even if you give in with the choices, the story won’t
     proceed unless you resist. So goes for the choices…

     Go through a few more scenes and some awkward moments. After gaining
     control, head out the room, then head to the second floor to find the
     others. Well, the same thing happened to them and you after a moment
     of gauche between your party members you will now need to get over
     with your next task.

     Apparently, another Shadow is lurking nearby and has the capability
     to play with the minds of its victims. You won’t be able to face it
     unless you get rid of the Seals protecting it. These are mirrors inside
     each rooms. But randomly breaking those mirrors will just transport you 
     to your starting room. Just look out for the mirrors where you have NO 
     REFLECTION. I found those mirrors in rooms 205 (2F) and 304 (3F). Some 
     minor shadows will be roaming the area as well.

     After destroying all the mirrors, you can just enter the same large
     room where you defeated the Hierophant earlier. Prepare for the last
     battle of the night.

     BOSS: Lovers
     Exp: 3277
     Item(s): None
     Nul: Light, Darkness

     This boss is pretty much the same as the Hierophant. Just attack
     normally and have some Me Patra gems ready. This boss can Charm
     characters as well so as much as possible heal them quickly once
     inflicted.

     After defeating the boss, watch through some scenes, including the
     appearance of Stregga members.

     Your Fool Arcana rank will increase by 1.
     New Tactic: Full Assault

     EM - Overhear conversation regarding the incoming exams.
     AM - Lecture; Lecture; reminder about the exams. Choose 2nd answer. 
          (“I failed, It's over now”) (+Charm)
     AS - You can visit the Velvet Room and check out the new requests as
          well. You can also check out the new equipments, courtesy of
          Officer Kurosawa.
     PM - after the mission, all of you could be tired. So after going
          out in the mall, sleep early.


     TIP: If you didn’t visit or hangout any of your friends for the whole
     TWO MONTHS, they may get upset  and may refuse to talk to you. When
     that happens, your Social Rank with them will be set on REVERSE. Try
     to avoid this by at least going out with them once in a while. This
     will be a challenge specially to the guys that you can only meet
     during Sundays. (Fortunately, they don't get reversed that easily,
     unless you force them to.)

     The only way to get things back to normal is to find your friend and
     reconcile. Depending on how close you were, he/she may turn you down
     at first but keep on trying and they’ll agree.

          the exams. So, take your time to visit some places or hangout

          While you’re at it, there is a request from Elizabeth to feed a 
          cat. Buy several super cat food from the pharmacy and find the cat
          in the back alley of Port island station. Include this as part of 
          your after school tasks for a few days to complete the request
     PM - Call from Elizabeth. The blocked area before is now accessible.
          Fuuka and Mitsuru won’t be in the dorm so you can’t go to
          Tartarus for now.

     As usual, new enemies will be here. I will run down some of the
     enemies’ weaknesses. This will help in surviving the upcoming battles
     as you clear each floor. At this point, your character should reach
     or already around level 30. You will be able to carry 12 personas
     once you gain that level.

     Wild Drive        – Zio/ Lightning
     Silent Book       – Agi/ Fire
     Mah Wheel         – Zio/ Lightning
     Indolent Maya     – Piercing Attacks
     Creation Relic*** – Mudo/ Darkness
     Killer Twins      – Agi/ Fire
     Avenger Knight    – Hama/ Light.
     Dogmatic Tower    - none

     Try to make your way to the first terminal in this block. It is okay
     if you can’t defeat the boss here at the moment. Activating the
     terminal and saving is more important.



     (72F) BOSS: Furious Gigas (x3)
     --------------------------
     Exp: 235
     Item(s): Golden Beard (x3)

     These guys are just like the previous Hulk-Hogan look-alikes you
     previously fought. This time, they are weak against wind/ Garu
     attacks. Use all-out attacks as often as possible to defeat them
     quickly.


     (85F) BOSS: Fanatic Tower (x3)
     --------------------------
     Exp: 628
     Item(s): Magic Mirror (x3)
     Repel: Lightning, Fire and Ice

     Since this boss has no weakness, you may resort to just the basic
     attacking. Just keep one of your characters take care of the
     healing.


     You will find the Old Document 04 in the 89th floor. The path is
     blocked so just go back for now.

     DT - Your trip to Yakushima starts now. You will be staying there for
          4 days and 3 nights.

          Once you reach Kirijo family’s mansion, read through a few
          scenes. After that you will find yourself in the beach. Junpei
          will pretty much start getting excited and act like a drooling
          perv, after seeing the girls in their swimsuits.

          Talk to Aki to save the game. Talk to everyone first then exit
          once done.

     PM - In the evening, watch some more scenes. Learn more  about the
          incident 10 years ago and the truth behind the Shadows and the
          Tartarus. Yukari will get emotional after learning the bitter
          truth.

          You will be given the option to chase after her and comfort her.
          Not until Junpei comes in and ruins the magic moment. LoL. ;D

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     DT - The girls and the boys will have their own trips for today. The
          girls went out to the woods while the boys hang out in the beach.
          After learning an emergency from the chairman, the control
          switches over to the main character.

          As Junpei suggested, you may initiate his self-dubbed “Operation:
          Babe Hunt”. For the sake of it, just agree.

          It doesn’t matter how much you try hitting on those girls. You
          are really destined to fail somehow. Just have fun in the
          operation. The last girl you’ll invite is really hilarious.
          Just find it out yourself.

          The very last girl you guys will attempt to hit is somehow
          mysterious and cute. In the game of “Rock-Paper-Scissors”, you
          will always lose; thus you will take your turn last. It is
          scripted actually.

          The girl will somehow recognize you and will run out in the
          forest. Chase after here. You will find her hiding behind the
          sign by the tree. After some conversation, you will learn that
          she was the weapon the girls are looking for.

     PM - You will learn that the girl is actually a battle droid by
          the name of Aigis. Somehow, she shows some attachment to the
          main character with no particular reason. She is now an official
          member of SEES. You can bring her to the Tartarus once you get
          back.

     PM - It will be automatically evening when you arrive at the dorm.
          You can’t go to Tartarus just yet since everybody’s tired. Just
          go out to the mall and sleep early to recover your energy.

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Aigis will sneak into your room and wake you up. After a few
          more conversations, you will be on your way to school. You will
          have a conversation with Junpei along the way.
     LT - Exam results will be posted. If you have high grades, you
          classmates will look up to you. Your charm will increase as
          well.
     AS - Free time
     PM - Free time; I suggest taking Aigis for some excursion in the
          Tartarus and learn of her abilities.



     - Tartarus -


     Some things you need to know about Aigis:

      + Her persona specializes in frontal/ physical attacks. Due to that,
        most of her attacks consume her HP instead of SP. Make sure you
        keep an eye on her HP during battles. Make sure a healer is with
        the party or you have a good number of healing items on stock.
      + Her support skills are most of the time, party buffs.
      + Her attack type is Piercing and she has high defense against
        Piercing attacks. However, she is weak to lightning. She also has
        a high critical rate.
      + Orgia Mode is her unique tactic or command.



     Orgia Mode
     -------------
     This removes the limiter in Aigis’ system. This can be considered as
     her Hyper mode or the like. Though it boosts her attack, defense and
     speed significantly, once active, you can’t give orders to her and
     she can’t use recovery items to the others.

     Also, a few turns after using it, she will enter “Cooldown mode”. In
     this mode, she will just wait out until she recovers.

     This option can be accessed from the “Tactics” menu


     Also, after reaching a few levels, Fuuka’s persona will learn the
     skill “Third Eye”. This will enable you guys to know whether the
     attack will work on the enemies or not. However, it can’t show the
     enemies’ weaknesses without scanning them first.


     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.
     | TIP: When Fuuka analyzes the whole floor and states that there are|
     | no enemies there, examine all rooms thoroughly. Most of the time, |
     | they contain chests.                                              |
     |                                                                   |
     | There is also a very rare occurrence when the whole floor has only|
     | rare shadows.                                                     |

     | TIP: If you still haven’t found out, (to complete Elizabeth’s     |
     | request for the Drink that shares her name), go to Port Island    |
     | Station and check out the outskirts to the left of the plaza.     |
     | Enter the small bar as shown and after some conversation, you will|
     | receive the drink called “Queen Elizabeth”. If none of this works |
     | when you visit, try visiting the place after you accepted the     |
     | request and during holidays or Sundays.                           |

      -----------------------------------------------------------------


     DH - Start of another long night. Well, this will actually be short
          since everything is straightforward. After the scene in the
          meeting room, your team will visit the underground weapons depot
          in Iwatodai. Once there, Jin and Takaya of Stregga will make an
          appearance again and will trap the group inside.

          The path is straight. Keep heading down. You may encounter a
          couple of enemies before eventually facing the boss. Try to scan
          them since they will be the new common enemies in the next block
          you’ll unlock after defeating the boss here.


     BOSS: Justice and Chariot
     Exp: 5001
     Item(s): None
     Str: Light and Darkness

     Basically, they don’t have any specific weaknesses. So just attack it
     normally. As usual, make sure that you bring a healer, either Mitsuru
     or Yukari and set them to support/heal. For the first part, they fight
     as one. They share one lifebar in this form so make sure you attack
     them with all you got, except for their strengths.

     After damaging them a bit, they will separate. When that happens,
     attack one target  at a time. Using group damaging attacks can also
     make the battle easier while they are separated.

     After some more scenes, the day will end.

     New tactic: Same Target


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  8/7  \                                                  / FRI |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     DT - Free time.
     PM - Free time; Can’t go to Tartarus for tonight.
     DH - Pharos will visit you again; (+1 Death Arcana)


      -------.                                                   ------
     |  8/8  \                                                  / SAT |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Phone call from Elizabeth. You are informed about the change in
          Tartarus.
     DT - Conversation with Mitsuru. She will inform you about the meeting
          tonight. Free time. Check out some new equipments as well. Your 
          party’s bathing suits are available from the police station now. 
          Also, you can complete two new requests from Elizabeth.
     PM - Meeting. Meet your new member. Koro-chan! You will be informed
          about the summer classes that you will attend next  week

     I suggest visiting Tartarus tonight. Bring your new ally and
     familiarize yourself with his attacks and fighting style.



     - Tartarus -


     (98F) BOSS: Magical Magus (x3)
     -------------------------
     Exp: 552
     Item(s): Sapphire (x1)
     Weak: Agi/ Maragi/ Fire

     This boss can be a pain in the butt if left on their own. You need to
     use Maragi and all-out attacks for best results.


     (110F) BOSS: Natural Dancer
     --------------------------
     Exp: 1473
     Item(s): Cup of Queen (x1)
     Str: Fire
     Immune: Wind

     This boss doesn’t have any particular weakness so you need to attack
     it the old fashioned way. Using status effects on this boss is quite
     effective. The only way you can win quicker is by using and all out
     attack. Having Yukari (she is strong against wind attacks) in this
     battle will help since she can withstand this boss’ powerful attack
     and provide healing to the team as well.

     Find the old document # 05 @ 114F


     You can actually complete all these requests in one night if you are
     persistent. Since you have almost a complete set of members, you can
     go for two full parties even if you are tired already. Just be careful
     about the main character since you will be very vulnerable when tired.


     (Enemy – Weakness)

     Champion Knight***       - Wind
     Shouting Tiara**         - Ice
     Supreme Hand****         - Slash attacks
     Minotaur IV – Fire

     **** - Use normal slash attacks to defeat this rare shadow in one
            hit. You will obtain the Bronze Medal once from this enemy as
            long as you accepted Elizabeth’s request. After that, it will
            drop zero exp and a piece of Supreme coin. These can be sold
            for a good amount of Yen.


     ***  - This enemy always appears in pairs. They are those “strong”
            enemies that are glowing pink/red. They are dangerous if they
            get their turn so make sure you sneak behind them to have an
            advantage. Their Heat Wave attack could be really devastating.

     **   - These enemies are frequent in the floors mentioned. They
            appear by 3’s or 4’s so you can collect their hair quite
            easily.

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     DT - I suggest visiting the pale young man in the shrine. If your 
            Academics is already Smart and above, talk to him. He will get 
            a little emo but you will understand why. He will mention that 
            he has lost his fountain pen. And a creature “with white fur 
            and red eyes” took it. Any ideas?

            Yeah, its our loyal pet, Kuro. He is in the dorm at this time.
            Unfortunately, returning to the dorm will automatically change
            the phase of the day to Evening. So before returning, do 
            whatever you need to do for the meantime. Like visiting the 
            velvet room and accepting Elizabeth’s request to visit the 
            shrine and obtaining a drink that shares her name. both 
            requests can be done within the day, leaving you with a much 
            needed free time afterwards.
     PM - Free time; Mitsuru will remind you that you can now take Koro
            for a walk. Some dorm mates will join you. Walking kuro will 
            take up your entire evening.

          Aigis out to the movies if you’d like (+academics)

     PM - Meeting; Meet your new team member. Ken!; You will have your
          free time as well. I suggest checking all your characters and
          head to the Tartarus to test the kid and learn his attack
          capabilities. If you haven’t finished all the tasks up to this
          point, do it now. The next full moon is nearing again.

     DH - Visit Tartarus. Check all quests that you can handle for this
          visit.


     - Tartarus -

     At level 41, Fuuka will gain new ability for her persona - Healing
     Wave. This will restore your party’s HP and SP a bit when entering a
     new floor. This will prove useful in those survival situations where
     you really need to find the portal.

     Ken’s fightning style is pretty much similar to Aigis. His attacks are
     mostly physical. He can use Hama but he uses it rarely. Ken may prove
     just a so-so ally. Well, I will just suggest to level them up fairly.

     DH - As soon as the operation starts and a short briefing, the team
          will notice that Junpei is missing. They prioritize taking the
          Shadow out first before looking for him.


     -Paulownia Mall-

     Read through the team’s conversation. You will also discover where
     Junpei is taken. When you have the control, choose your members. The
     next boss is an Electric-type. You may want to have somebody with
     high elec resistance. Make sure also that you don’t bring someone
     that is weak against electricity as well. Once ready, talk to Fuuka
     and head to Club Escapade.

     BOSS: Hermit
     Exp: 7471
     Item(s): None
     Drain: Lightning
     Null: Darkness, Light

     It’s most powerful attack requires at least 3-4 turns of charging up.
     At those times, you are free to attack it with all you got. You will
     know that Hermit is ready to release all those charged energy when
     there a message telling you that it is emitting an odd light. For
     those times, I usually cast a party-buff, specifically, +defense to
     make sure nobody gets killed in one shot.

     As usual, set someone to Heal/Support. You can provide that as well
     but try switching roles whenever it is needed. Having Mediarama
     (Persona Skill) in this battle can make it easier.


     After the boss fight, just watch through the following scenes. Your
     team will also learn a new tactic, “Attack Fallen.”

          chances of visiting him are very limited. Of course don’t forget
          to buy some stuff from the home tv shopping and check out some
          new requests.

     -Tartarus, 4th Block – Tziah-

     The enemies here can be tough at first, especially if you still need
     to scan them before knowing their weaknesses. I will list down their
     attacks and weaknesses just to save you time and trouble.


     (Enemy – Weakness)


     Ancient Turret **         - Elec/ Zio
     Blue Sigil                – Darkness/ Mudo
     Constancy Relic           – Fire/ Agi
     Ill-Fated Maya            – Elec/ Zio and Wind/Garu
     Hakuro Musha****          – Light/Hama
     Killer Drive              – Light/Hama
     Tranquil Idol             – Darkness/Mudo


     - From floors 123+ -


     Brave Wheel               - Ice/Bufu
     Death Twins               – Strike attacks
     Elegant Mother***         - Darkness/Mudo and Elec/ Zio
     Magical Magus             - Fire/ Agi
     Writhing Tiara            – Ice/Bufu


     ** Drops Armor Plates needed for Elizabeth’s request
     ***Drops Empress’s Mirror needed for Elizabeth’s request
     **** Drops Gold Handguards needed for Elizabeth’s request


     (122F) BOSS: Arcane Turret (x3)
     --------------------------
     Exp: 950 exp
     Item(s): Massive Wheel (x3)
     Str: Physical
     Weak: Ice

     Use Bufu against these tanks to make the battle easier. They are
     strong vs physical attacks, not to mention that they can deal massive
     damage although on one target at a time. Make sure your party gets
     healed as needed and concentrate on one enemy at a time.


     (135F) BOSS: Sleeping Table
     --------------------------
     Exp: 2535
     Item(s): Megido Gem (x1)
     Str: Fire
     Null: Strike

     Since this boss has no definite weakness, you will really need to
     plan ahead when facing this boss. Having Mediarama (recover party HP)
     or better will help a lot in this battle. In the start of the battle,
     it will cast status ailments such as fear so make sure you have a good
     stock of Me Patra Gems.

     Later in the battle, once it has less than 50% HP left, it will use
     Maragidyne (heavy fire damage/all) on every turn. Don’t bring in
     members that are weak against fire. Junpei is a good selection here
     since he is almost immune to this boss’ fire attacks. As long as you
     keep your party’s HP at full every turn and they are on Full Assault
     on the enemy, you can win this battle even with just three members.

     Cross and Pentagon Spread 101
     -----------------------------

     Fortunately, both the Cross and Pentagon Spread doesn’t require you
     to experiment with the combinations. You just need to have all the
     required personas with you and you can fuse them. Note that if your
     level is not high enough to handle the resulting persona, you may
     end up keeping those personas until you have the necessary level to
     handle the powerful resulting persona.

     Note that some of the rare personas needed to complete Elizabeth’s
     request (e.g. Black Frost, Girimekala) can only be acquired using
     this process.

     DH - The operation will start. Read through the conversation. Shinji
          and Ken won’t be here. Your team will head out to the place
          where the shadows appeared.


     -Iwatodai Strip Mall-

     Once there, choose your members and head out.


     BOSS: Fortune and Strength
     --------------------------
     Exp: 10898
     Item(s): None

     You won’t be able to attack Fortune until you defeat Strength.
     However, don’t expect it to go down quickly. One new and annoying
     part of this battle is that Fortune will keep on using Wheel of
     Fortune for the duration of the battle.

     This is how it works. The roulette has two colors; blue and red.
     Above the colors are status buffs, ailments and damage (medium,
     heavy). When you stop the spin and it stops on the blue spot,
     whatever effect indicated above the color will take effect on the
     enemy. So, if you are really lucky (or exceptionally good at timing),
     then this could make the battle easier. When it stops on red, the
     effect will affect your entire party.

     In this battle, have a good number of status healing items and use a
     persona with Mediarama or Mediarahan. Strength attacks one target
     at  a time but can deal medium-heavy damage. High level attacks
     (-dyne) works well to this boss.

     After defeatin Strength, Fortune can now be attacked. Though it may
     look harmless, don’t be deceived. It is quite powerful compared to
     the first one you just defeated. It will still use Wheel of Fortune
     but it has some elemental attacks as well so be careful.

     When near death, this boss will start cheating. Just endure a few
     hits/turns more and the battle should be over.

     After the battle watch a few more scenes. The scenes will switch to
     Ken and Shinji. Takaya the creep will appear as well.

     Watch through the scenes and for this night, you just had your team’s
     very first casualty. Poor guy.

     | TIP: If you have invested expensive equipment for this short-lived|
     | character, you can get all those by entering his room on the      |
     | dorm's second floor.                                              |

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - Attend the school’s memorial service for Shinji.
     LT - Mitsuru will barge in your room and will tell you about the
          meeting later.
     AS - Aki will get emo. With that, his persona Polydeuces will evolve
          into a much powerful form, Caesar. Head to the velvet Room and 
          check out some of the sidequests available. I suggest taking #79 
          (“Bring me a Sengoku-era helm”) and #38 (“I want to try sushi”)
          Request #79 will last for more than a week so you can complete #38
          immediately. 

          Visit the Faculty room and find Mr. Ono. You won’t get the
          helm on your first visit since you’’ll need to visit the faculty 
          room a few days more. Don’t worry since your academics will 
          increase with your every visit. After that, visit the shrine and 
          examine the smaller shrine near the large tree. Examine it and an 
          old woman will give you an INARI SUSHI.

     PM - Meeting. Ken won’t be on his room and run away. The team decides
          to stay put.

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     AS - Free time. Note that some of your school friends won’t be there
          because of the exams. So spend your free time in any way you
          want. I just made some offerings in the shrine and stayed in
          the library. You can also check out the Police Station before
          that to check out some new equipment.
     PM - Call from Elizabeth. She will inform you about the unblocked
          path in Tartarus. You may want to check it out later.

          Watch some more scenes, including Nemesis’ evolution to
          Kala-Nemi and his decision to stay with the team and return
          to the dorm. After that, you will have your free time.
     DH - Pharos will visit you again. After the conversation, your Death
          Arcana link will increase by a point.

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     EM - overhear conversation
     AM - Choose option 1 (“To excite the audience”) (+Charm)
     AS - Free time; With request #79 active, visit the faculty room
          and talk to MS.Miyahara. Your academics will increase.
     PM - Free time. This is also a perfect time to visit the new area in
          Tartarus. Check out some of Elizabeth’s new requests as well.

     -Tartarus Tziah 140F-

     The new unblocked path is still within the fourth block. As usual,
     new enemies will be here so take time to find the terminals first
     before clearing all floors thoroughly. I also suggest accepting the
     request for collecting those Red Armor Plates and Shadow Crystal.
     Note that the super rare Shadow Crystal is inside an ordinary chest,
     and not a gold, rare chest. It will be a good idea to just engage the
     enemies you are targeting (glowing pink/red shadows) or the ones
     blocking the path.

     In that way, you are conserving you energy until you reach the
     terminal.

     (Enemy – Weakness)

     Death Seeker           – Light/Hama
     Flowing Sand           – Any physical attack

     (146) BOSS: Hell Knight (x3)
     ----------------------------
     Exp: 1126
     Item(s): Sword of Queen (x3)
     Drain: Lightning
     Weak: Strike Attacks

     Akihiko will be your best bet. Alternatively, you can just equip a
     cestus or an axe and take care of attacking but I’d rather take care
     of the healing. Having Mediarama/Mediarahan will increase your
     chances of survival since there are three enemies and they have
     party damaging skills.

     Order somebody to take care of the healing, and the other two, either
     on Full Assault or Assign Target – basically you are concentrating on
     one target at a time.

     Casting some support buffs will help as well. These enemies are
     susceptible to status ailments also if you just want to try.




     (160) BOSS: Mythical Gigas
     ----------------------------
     Exp: 3003
     Item(s): Wand of King
     Drain: Fire

     This boss is all about physical attacks and it does excel on that.
     Prepare to heal often. If you can spare an attack mirror or two, that
     will be great as well. As usual, set one of your characters as healer
     then the other two on Full Assault. Or, if your characters can
     withstand its attacks, order your team on Full Assault then.

     It has a really good HP and def rating so expect the battle to take a
     bit some time.

     EM - You won’t be able to go out. The day will automatically take you
          to the Dark Hour
     DH - The operation begins. Watch through some scenes.

     In the meeting room, you will need to choose your members. Bring the
     best with you and commence the operation. You will find yourself in
     the Moonlight Bridge but as expected, the two remaining members of
     Strega will confront you. Actually, this is more of a giveaway
     battle. An appetizer before the main dish.



     BOSS: Takaya				Boss: Jin
     ----------------                           ----------------
     Rpl: Fire, Dark				Null: Light and Dark
     Null: Light
     Exp: 14426

     This battle ain’t that hard as it looks. Just concentrate on one
     target at a time. Use high level –dyne skills, except for fire.
     Heal as needed. But if your characters are high leveled, then you
     don’t need to worry about them and just treat this as a normal
     battle.

     After their defeat, read through the conversation. The two idiots
     will just fall off the blood-red river below.

     The last shadow will be floating in the middle of the bridge. You
     can also choose your party members for this battle as well.



     BOSS: Hanged Man
     ----------------
     Exp: 14971

     For the start of the battle, there will be three statues on the
     ground. You can’t attack the main target yet unless you destroy
     all those statues below. The best way to destroy it is by using
     Ma-Dyne skills (Maragidyne, Maziodyne) or any powerful group/
     all damaging skills.

     After destroying the first set of statues, the main boss will
     fall down. Attack it with all you got. You don’t actually need
     to heal too much in this battle but make sure to do so whenever
     needed. He will then start summoning a Devious Maya (Null Ice).
     Still use group attack skills to get rid of the maya and damage
     the main boss as well.

     In the later parts of the battle, the boss will start summoning
     sets of statues and will pull itself out of target range. Get rid
     of the statues immediately. By destroying all/ or at least two of
     the statues at the same time, the boss will fall down hard to the
     ground and will be open for an all-out attack. Take this to your
     advantage and the battle will be over soon.

     After the battle, the whole team will start planning for a
     celebration. Just read through it  and the night will end.

     PM - Everybody is there except Ikutsuki (Chairman) and Aigis.
          Mitsuru’s father will arrive as well. The gang will have some
          fun and take pictures. The Fool arcana link will increase as
          well. Read through the conversations until…

     DH - Much to their dismay, there is still the Dark Hour. The team
          decided to proceed to the Tartarus.

     After some really annoying twist of things (and I was thankful for
     that since I don’t want the game to end yet XD), you will discover
     Shuji and Aigis in the Tartarus. He had somehow reprogrammed Aigis
     to do his bidding. After some really evil revelations, you guys will
     about to the sacrificed. Aigis did came to her senses and released
     you guys instead.

     So, just watch the following anime scenes. Awesome. After the
     shocking events, the day will end...

     (171F) BOSS: Judgement Sword (x3)
     -----------------------------
     Exp: 930
     Item(s): Dense Rock (x3)
     Drain: Lightning

     Don’t use Yukari and Aigis in this fight. I suggest taking in
     Akihiko, since he is immune against lightning attacks and can provide
     backup healing as well. Basically, the enemies’ attacks are mainly
     physical and electrical attacks. Most of the time, they will use
     buffs to increase their stats then hit you with party affecting
     spells.

     The hard part of this battle is when the enemies use group damaging
     attacks consecutively. Having a persona with electrical resistance/
     immunity is a good choice here but consider having a persona with
     Mediarama or better, Mediarahan.

     It will help a lot if you manually order your team mates to
     concentrate on one target (Choose “Assign Target” from the Tactics
     battle menu) at  a time. Just keep your party’s HP above 50% and you
     should do good. Once you were able to eliminate the first two
     enemies, then the last one shouldn’t be that difficult.



     (180F) BOSS: Stasis Giant (x3)
     -----------------------------
     Exp: 1044
     Item(s): Attack Mirror (x3)
     Null: Slash attacks

     These set of enemies can be a pain to fight with as well. They also
     use buffs and group damaging, physical attacks. Just like before,
     have a backup healer and you take care of the healing, preferably
     with the help of a persona with Mediarama or Mediarahan. Using
     attack mirrors in this battle is practically useless since the
     reflected damage to the bosses is slash damage –which they are
     immune from.

     Though they have no elemental strengths or immunities, I suggest
     using –dyne attacks against them. It seems that Ziodyne deals a bit
     more damage compared to the other elements of the same caliber skill.
     Focus on one target at a time.

     Just keep your team afloat by keeping their HP near full. Heal when
     needed, and if you can cast support buffs, don’t hesitate to use it
     as well.

     -------------------------
     Exp: 2786
     Item(s): Homunculus (x1)

     This boss has no particular weakness. Most of his attacks are all
     instant deaths. You need to have some Homunculus stocked so that
     your character has better chances of surviving. The best way to
     avoid that much problem is by getting rid of it quickly.

     (211F) BOSS: Reckoning Dice
     ----------------------------
     Exp: 3336
     Item(s): Sword of King (x1)
     Null: Ice

     From time to time, this boss will use attack/magic paling. Don’t
     hesitate to take damage after it uses it, just to give it an opening
     for your other team members to attack. It also uses Megido and other
     physical attacks. Though it does medium-heavy damage to all your
     party members, just keep on healing when needed and you should do
     fine.

          him. He will invite you guys to go to the hot spring. Go back to
          your room to get changed.

          Once there, just read through the conversations. After a few 
          minutes, the girls will enter. Though you may think that you guys 
          are lucky bastards, you will be thrown into a funny mini game of 
          hide and seek. It’s an amusing mini-game actually. Good luck!

          1) First, hide on the east side of the central rock, staying 
          close to it. Wait until the girls mention that they didn’t find 
          anything.

          2) When the girls decide to check the other side, slowly looped 
          around the bottom of the rock and hide on the west side, again 
          close to the rock. Wait patiently until they mention that they 
          didn’t find you either.

          3) When the girls split up, slowly walk to the central gap, 
          interact with the falls and select hide. 


          Unfortunately, you don't get anything for your efforts, but the 
          following scenes are more amusing than the alternative. Mitsuru 
          jokes that Fuuka's detection is worthless without her clothes and 
          Aigis muses about the difference in human bodies. (Particularly, 
          bust size) The departure scene is also a bit different from the 
          other one.

     DT - Free time
     PM - The team won’t be going to the Tartarus tonight. Talk to junpei
          for the last “revival” conversation. take your time and sleep.
     DH - Fuuka will wake you up. You will find yourself in the meeting
          room and the next scenes will follow.

     Apparently, Chidori will attack you guys. Before deploying, you need
     to choose your party members. Junpei won’t be there though. When
     ready, talk to Fuuka and commence with the operation.

     A few more conversations later, you will find yourself fighting
     against Chidori.


     BOSS: Chidori
     -------------
     Exp: 16089
     Item(s): None
     Drain: Fire
     Str: Dark/Light

     This battle is rather easy. You can just order your allies to go on
     Full assault. Chidori also has this innate skill called Spring of
     Life that restores a good amount of her HP on every turn. Just keep
     on attacking and heal when needed. Her attacks are fire-based.


     Watch the following scenes including Junpei’s near death experience
     with Strega. Chidori gave him her life force and will confess her
     love for Junpei. After that really heartbreaking scene, Junpei will
     acquire Chidori’s Spring of Life skill (which works like the passive
     skill Regeneration) and he will also have a new Persona.

     After the following scenes, the remaining duo of Strega will leave.
     You will be back to your dorm automatically.

     PM -  Ryoji will be there. This is the crucial moment of the game.
          Here, your decision will affect the ending, literally.

          You will need to talk to him in your room. You will have two
          choices, let Ryoji live or kill him. If you decide the kill him,
          then that is the easiest way to end the game. The game will
          automatically take you on Graduation Day with all your memories
          about your battles and the Dark Hour erased. After some quite
          “normal” circumstances, you and everybody doesn’t know anything
          about the inevitable occurrence of the Fall.

          Now as long as you didn’t overwrite your save game when you are
          prompted to after the credits, you can still load your latest
          save game and go with letting him live.

          By choosing that, you will get another full month of preparation
          and savoring your “last days”. On the Jan 31st, you will be
          facing the “Unbeatable One”

          In this night, the Fool Arcana will be maxed out  and the final
          arcana/ social link will be unlocked as well. This is the
          Judgement Arcana.

          Ryoji will bid you farewell and you will start your New Year.

          accomplished by now so just save it for later.

     (220F)BOSS: Noble Seeker x3
     ---------------------------
     Exp: 1594
     Item(s): Bead x15

     This is the first out of the five guardians you need to defeat before
     the 31st. Avoid using elemental attacks against these enemies. As
     usual, have someone take care of the healing and attack normally. If
     you have a decent level, then this battle shouldn’t be that hard.
     Don’t be fooled though, since these enemies have good evasion rates.

     After defeating the bosses, your Judgement Arcana link will increase
     by one.

     Make your way to the next guardian and terminal at the 228th floor.
     Along the way, on 224F, your Judgement Arcana will increase again.
     Upon reaching the 228F terminal, go back down and save. Engage the
     enemies when ready.



     (228F)BOSS: Carnal Snake x3
     ---------------------------
     Exp:  1711
     Item(s): Cup of King x3

     These enemies have really good magic resistance and can quickly drain
     your party’s SP, restricting your offensive and recovery capabilities.
     Another thing to note is that these guys also cast/use Tetrakarn.
     Think of it  that they just used an Attack Mirror.

     These enemies also use Mudoon and some -dyne attacks so revive/ heal
     as often as needed. The battle could be easy or disastrous, depending
     on your party’s composition. If you are having problems, load the
     game again, then try bringing party members that can provide support
     or offense.

     After defeating the bosses, your Judgement Arcana link will increase
     by one.

     Daring Gigas (LV70)           – Wind/ Garu

     Silver Dice                   – No weakness (Null Phys, Dark)




     (236F)BOSS: World Balance
     ---------------------------
     Exp:  4252 exp
     Item(s): Megidolaon Gem

     This boss can be pretty annoying. Though it doesn’t have specific
     weaknesses, its attacks are always party based so make sure someone
     has the capability to use Mediarama/han. You can use a Magic Mirror
     if you want but that won’t be a good idea since it will start using
     Medigolaon on every turn. Unless you have a strong healer, do not
     attempt to use a magic mirror. To further help you in battle, use
     support skills like buffs or the ones that lower the enemy’s stats.

     After defeating the boss, your Judgement Arcana link will increase
     by one.



     - 237F+ -

     Devious Maya                 – Elec/Zio
     Eternal Eagle                – Dark/ Mudo
     Nemean Beast                 - Dark/ Mudo
     Jotun of Evil                – Phyiscal attacks
     Wicked Turret                -  Elec/Zio


     (244F)BOSS: Fierce Cyclops x3
     ---------------------------
     Exp:  2088
     Item(s): Coin of King x3
     Null: Elec
     Str: Fire, Physical attacks

     Use your most powerful magical attacks here except Elec. Also since
     these enemies can cast party targeting spells, check your party’s HP
     and maintain it above 80% always. Bufudyne and Garudyne deals a bit
     more damage compared to other spells so make sure you use them if you
     can.

     Watch out when they start to power charge; there will always be a
     high probability that they can kill your characters in one hit  after
     power charging. Also, when they have very low HP remaining, they will
     use a suicide attack called Last Resort that deals medium-heavy
     damage to all your party members. Just outlast the battle by healing
     often and assigning one target to your offensive members.

     After defeating the bosses, your Judgement Arcana link will increase
     by one.


     - 245F+ -

     Emperor Beetle               – Strike Attacks
     Fierce Cyclops               – No weakness; Str vs Slash attacks
                                    and Fire
     Harmony Giant                - Ice
     Platinum Dice                – Elec/ Zio
     Wrathful Book                – Fire/ Agi



     (252F)BOSS: Jotun of Grief
     ---------------------------
     Exp:  4500
     Item(s): Fine Statuette
     Null: Elec, Wind, Strike
     Drn: Fire, Ice

     So all magical attacks doesn’t work. Good thing, piercing attacks can
     affect this boss. If you want, you can bring in Ken, Aigis and Yukari
     in this battle. If you can cast non-elemental spells such as Megido,
     do so. Also, you can nullify the enemy’s  resistance by using –Break
     skills. If you have a persona that can do that, use it. If not, your
     allies should be able to cast it – though it also depends on the
     level.

     This boss also uses Megidolaon which is practically a party-based
     attack so keep your party afloat by healing often. This boss is not
     that hard as long as your party can deal damage and past through its
     defenses.

     After defeating the boss, your Judgement Arcana link will increase by
     one. Congratulations! You have just defeated all the five guardians
     blocking the path towards Tartarus’ top floor.



     Continue up until you reach the highest floor you can reach for now.
     Here, your Judgement Arcana will be automatically maxed out. The path
     won’t be open until Jan 31st so head down for now. Also, after
     defeating the last guardian, a new surprise is in store for you.



     - MONAD -

     In the ground floor of Tartarus, an enormous door will appear on the
     northeast, behind Aigis and Koromaru. This gives you access to an
     optional dungeon, known as Monad.  The enemies here are extremely
     powerful and high-leveled so always save before exploring this area.
     However, if you are able to defeat  an enemy here and get a wand
     oracle (card), @ LV 74, the experience may get as high as 25000 per
     enemy/group.

     This is a great place to farm experience and obtain exceptionally
     rare and powerful equipment. Though you really need to be at least
     LV90 above to fully navigate the whole 10 floors of Monad, The top
     floor contains a 1 million Yen chest. If you are just planning to
     farm experience, stay at the bottom floor. If you are starting at a
     rather low level, then I suggest saving after every battle or two.
     You will never know what will happen next.

     Note that the enemies here have a good combination of strengths and
     weaknesses so you need to have really high leveled personas here to
     do the trick. Alice is the persona I used for her Die for Me! skill.
     However, you still need to use other high level attacks such as
     –dyne skills.

     You can reach level 99 in just a few short days. If you want to
     stay safe, you can order your allies to attack all shadows and you
     take care of the healing from a distance.

     Below are the list of enemies and their weaknesses for this dungeon.


     Divine Mother                 – Dark/ Mudo and Ice/ Bufu
     Tenjin Musha                  – Elec/ Zio
     Acheron Seeker                – No weakness, Str vs elemental attacks
     King Castle                   – Wind/ Garu
     Grand Magus                   – Fire/ Agi
     Eternal Sand                  – Physical attacks
     Hallowed Turret               – Elec/Zio
     Veterent Idol                 - Ice/ Bufu
     White Sigil                   – Fire/ Agi
     Void Giant                    – No weakness
                                   - Drains physical attacks
                                   - Repels Light and Dark attacks.


     You have a very limited time from here on so choose what you want to
     do carefully. If you are planning to play the game again on a
     second playthrough, I suggest maxing your attributes if you still
     haven’t. Just spend the days normally until the “Promised Day”

     |  1/31  \         PROMISED DAY: THE END OF THE WORLD      / SUN |
      -----------------------------------------------------------------


     EM - The final battle is tonight, at the top of Tartarus.
     DT - Free time until dark.
     PM - Team will have their last meeting. Also, they promised each
          other that they will still remember everything even if the Dark
          Hour is gone. After that, you can talk to everybody if you like,
          then talk to Mitsuru to head out.




     

     Choose your party members and make sure you give them the best
     equipment you have acquired. If you want, you can register all your
     Personas first. Save first, when ready take the portal to the latest
     terminal you have reached. (252F)

     Continue further floors up. You still need to wade through enemies
     and look for the stairs on each floor. The first target is on the
     258th Floor. If all your party members are maxed out, then just
     split up to look for items and the stairs since the enemies will
     just run away from you. If you cleared these floors earlier, then you
     just need to make your up.

     Activate the terminal in 258F, go back down and save. Now go upstairs
     when ready.



     BOSS: Jin LV74
     --------------------
     Exp:  8313
     Null: Light and Dark
     Rpl: Fire

     Nothing much about this boss. If your level is high enough, then you
     don’t need to worry about him. Jin has fire attacks but those doesn’t
     deal considerable damage to be alarmed off. Just attack normally and
     he should go down after a few seconds.



     You will have further conversation with Jin before he dies. After the
     short scene, you can proceed upstairs. Like before, you still need to
     clear a few basic floors before reaching the next terminal. Takaya is
     waiting at the 262nd floor.

     Before facing Takaya, you will have the option to change your
     members. Activate the terminal here also and save if you want. When
     ready, head upstairs to face him.



     BOSS: Takaya LV75
     --------------------
     Exp:  9068
     Null: Dark
     Rpl: Light

     Like Jin, Takaya is also a giveaway battle. He has high defense and
     HP compared to Jin and his attacks are not bad either. You will have
     a hard time defeating him if you are around at his level. Since all
     my characters are maxed out, this battle is a breeze.

     After the battle, continue upstairs or backtrack to the portal and
     save. There is also an access point upstairs but it is up to you.
     This is the last part of Tartarus. Upstairs is the final boss.
     Choose your members for the final battle and go upstairs.



     


     BOSS: Nyx Avatar LV76
     --------------------
     Exp:  5678

     So here it is, the final boss. Don’t be intimidated by its size. Last
     bosses are often large, ugly and menacing. This boss has the ability
     to change Arcanas; that means that his attributes, strengths and
     weaknesses change after shifting Arcanas. At max level, you will just
     laugh off his attacks though he can still kill your guys with Mudo
     and Hama skills. Just use Balm of Life to revive them at full health.
     Your consumable items won’t be carried over when you start a new game
     anyways.

     You may want to analyze it after every Arcana shift to know its
     weakness. You will problems defeating this boss if you are just
     around its level. Nyx Avatar attacks twice each turn, not to
     mention that he has group damaging attacks. It also inflicts
     different status effects so have a good number of Me Patra Gems
     ready.

     Nyx Avatar will undergo several Arcana shifts, with all the main
     Arcanas. After that, it will shift into its true avatar, Death…



     Consider this as its “true form”. Its defense and attacks have
     increased considerably and its attacks will hit harder. But its
     nothing to worry about if you are maxed out.

     Now, beware when it uses the unique skill Moonless Gown. This
     barrier repels ALL kinds of attacks to the attacker/user. You
     need to order your allies to be on standby while Moonless Gown is
     active. Otherwise, they will just kill themselves.

     One of the main problems you will encounter here is that Nyx
     activates Moonless Gown AFTER your turn which means it will be too
     late to order your allies to standby. There is always a chance that
     they will get severely damaged by their own attacks. Moonless Gown
     usually stays active for 2-3 turns. Don’t waste too much time or
     opportunity. Once it lifts, quickly order your allies to attack.
     Yet be aware that Nyx will bring it up again. That could be the
     hard part of this battle.

     (Reader Tip from Larry J:)
     When Nyx releases his Moonlight Gown you aren't always the first one 
     to act. To counteract his break skills you need to have some Dekunda 
     gems in your inventory which makes the breaks useless.

     Once its life becomes critical, it will use a devastating attack
     called Night Queen. It inflicts different status effects and deals
     severe damage to all members. Just consider it as Nyx’s last attempt
     to kill you guys off. Just continue attacking until he is finished.




     Don’t celebrate yet; watch the following scenes, including a few
     great anime cutscenes.



     After the cutscenes, you will find yourself back in the Velvet room.
     Here Igor will help you for the last time, and will invoke you with
     the power of all those people whom you maxed your social links with.


     After that and a few more scenes, you will need to face the “true”
     Nyx.. Don’t worry, this is a scripted battle. You will win.


     Don’t mind the tremendous attacks unleashed by Nyx. Just skip your
     turns, and your friends will give you strength until you have full
     strength. Once full, use the Great Seal (which will be the only
     action you can do) to end the battle.

     Watch the remaining scenes.

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

     Your life will be back to normal. You still go to school but you can
     do limited things only. Just save, sleep until the 5th.

     Aigis will remember and will tell you about it. Now watch the last
     few heartwarming scenes and the credits will roll.




     Congratulations for finishing the game!

     After the credits, you will be prompted to save your clear data. If
     you still wish to play the old data, don’t overwrite it with a
     cleared save game.

     There are some things that will be carried over when you start a
     new game. Most of these applies to the main character only.

      + All equipment you have in your inventory will be carried over,
        including the ones you have equipped. However, all your allies’
        equipment will start from default...

      + All your Yen/money will be carried over. That means you could
        start the game as a millionaire… Maximum amount of money you can
        carry is 9,999,999 only.

      + All your REGISTERED personas in the compendium will be carried
        over. So it is possible to have a high level persona early in the
        game. (Orpheus will start at default level but you can get rid of
        him and summon the Orpheus you have in the compendium)

      + Ultimate forms of maxed social links can be created through fusion
        as soon as possible.

      + Your level and attributes will be carried over as well. That means
        you can immediately talk to those people that requires high
        attributes like LV6 Academics, Charm or Courage. (If you didn’t
        have enough time to make it out with Yukari, Fuuka or Mitsuru due
        to time constraints in your first playthrough, now you can open a
        social link with them as early as possible.)

      + The shops (drug store and police station) will be selling all the
        items you have unlocked. In case you sold the old equipments of
        your party members, you can buy high level armors and weapons for
        them at the start of the game. Equipment for Aigis and Koro will
        be available once you they join your team.

      + Gameplay time will be carried over. (I finished my first game file
        after 63 hours.)

      + The optional dungeon, Monad will be accessible the first time you
        can enter Tartarus. You can farm experience as early as possible,
        so long as you can kill enemies before they can kill you (to be
        safe, defeat an enemy, exit and save. Return. My starting party of
        Yukari, Akihiko and Junpei were already @ LV60+ before even
        finishing first block)

      + Consumable items (including shadow drops needed for Elizabeth’s
        request) won’t be carried over. Special items such as those given
        to you by your friends after maxing their social links will be
        carried over instead. Rare weapons needed to complete some
        of Elizabeth’s requests will be carried over as well (as long as 
        they are in your inventory)

      + Social Links will be reset to default.

     The Answer is the continuation of the Journey’s story. Unfortunately, 
     all social links, money and equipment you have unlocked from the 
     original game won’t be carried over here. Here, Aigis will be your 
     main character and will have the ability to carry/change multiple 
     Personas. All your other party members will still be here and your 
     party will start at Level 25. Furthermore, the battles here have an 
     increased difficulty, making it more challenging. The good thing about 
     this expansion is that you won’t need to worry about school or 
     maintaining social links. You can just concentrate on building your 
     party and exploring each section of the labyrinth.


     Watch more scenes and you will take control of Aigis, In a fight 
     against a new enemy, metis. Just attack continuously and you should 
     win with no problems. Watch the following scenes. Athena will also 
     morph to Orpheus. After that, Aigis will find herself inside the 
     velvet room. Obtain the Velvet Key.
     
     Watch more scenes. When you’re back upstairs, Mitsuru, Junpei and 
     Koromaru won’t be joining you for the meantime. Since the lounge will 
     be your primary starting point, the velvet room will be there. Save 
     first at the logbook near the entrance. Assemble your team Metis will 
     join your party as well so can add her up to your active team. Head 
     downstairs when ready. Enter to the lighted door.

     The structure of the dungeons here pretty much resembles tartarus. 
     Instead of going up, you’ll need to work your way deeper and deeper to 
     each section of the abyss. You will find savepoints midway and discover
     golden doors leading to some parts of your memories or the past. Also, 
     like tartarus, the floors are randomly generated so it is impossible 
     to map them out. Just seek the items and find the exit to the next 
     floor in order to proceed. For your convenience, I will be listing the 
     enemies’ basic stats so that you can fight them effectively. You will 
     need this in order to survive.
     
     HelP: During your first battle, metis will explain her orgia mode. It 
     functions the same as aigis’ but it lasts longer and increases her 
     stats dramatically.

     TIP: As for your first boss battle, the mayas are weak against fire so 
     you can use agi to down the three of them. As for the gigas, he has a 
     dodge wind skill though his weakness is wind. Just hope yukari or 
     metis’ garu connects for a chance to perform an all out attack against 
     these guys.


     After defeating the boss, a door will appear. This will lead you back 
     to the desert of doors. You can now use this door to continue 
     navigating where you left off.

     directly to the dorm, for easier access. Upgrade your equipment if you 
     have the cash and return to the dorm. Now you may form another team to 
     check out the next door in the desert of sands.

     Tip: This boss is a bit tough since It doesn’t seem to have a weakness.
     Just assign one person in the team as a healer and don’t use the 
     specific skills I mentioned above. After a few turns also, the Cyclops 
     will summon a soul dancer. Kill this summoned shadow first since it 
     can heal the Cyclops with diarama, prolonging your battle.

     Just like the first stage, the midpoint door will appear as a shortcut.
     Grab the chests from the same room and return to the surface to 
     resupply or change teams.

     Tip: Bringing Mitsuru in this battle will be a great idea. Order her 
     to target only the El Dorado beasts while someone from the party takes 
     care of the healing. Concentrate on getting rid of the castle first if 
     you can since it can cast mediarahan, which can prolong the battle. 
     You should also look out for its all party attacks that can deal 
     critical damage and down your allies. Keep your healer busy and as 
     soon as you have dealt with the el dorado beasts, the castle will fall 
     shortly.

     Tip: Like the previous battle, you must take out the lesser enemies 
     first. Use garu against the mayas. And agi or elec against the harem 
     dancer. Beware of its charm skill; make sure to heal it right away. 
     After taking out the mayas, you can just concentrate on the main 
     target until it is defeated.

     Tip: Having personas with multiple elemental attacks is the key for 
     winning here. You don’t need to use all-party elemental spells since 
     you’ll just lose precious turns. Instead, attack on enemy at a time. 
     Order one of your team mates that have elemental advantage over a 
     target to attack the same target. For example, if you have koro or 
     junpei in your party, have them target Ice Raven while you provide 
     support or cast AGI skills of your own. Be careful since aside from 
     all-party elemental attacks, these guys are also capable of lowering 
     your status or inflicting status ailment.

     Tip: nothing special about this fight, really. Just exploit the 
     weaknesses of each to give you and advantage. This battle will be a 
     lot of easier of you have a persona that has at least two elemental 
     attacks, with the combination of any of the three you can use in 
     battle (Zio, agi, bufu). That way, you can just equip the persona, 
     down two targets then switch to another persona that will deal with 
     the 3rd target. This way, you can knock down all of them and finish the
     battle with an all-out attack. Just remember to avoid using all-party
     spells since they have different elemental affinities which will just 
     heal the other targets – plus, those attacks won’t give you a free 
     turn. Single target spells are suggested instead.

     Tip: This battle isn’t really that hard. Like the previous boss 
     battle, avoid using all-party elemental spells. Use agilao or better 
     yet agidyne against the magi and the maya. Once they’re down, switch 
     to a persona with bufu/la/dyne and use it to knock down the crying 
     table. If ever the battle takes you too long, make sure to cure the 
     distress status on any of your characters because The crying table can 
     use the skill “Ghastly wail” which can kill any distressed character 
     instantly.

     Tip: this boss is resistant to all kinds of physical attacks so you’ll
     need to rely on strong electric attacks. Akihiko and ken maybe handy 
     if you have leveled them up fairly. Make sure to keep an active healer 
     in this battle, preferably yukari or mitsuru. This boss’ physical 
     attacks are quite damaging and can easily knock out your characters. 
     You can order your primary attackers like metis or junpei to attempt 
     knocking down this boss so that you can use an all-out attack. Keep a 
     persona with an All-party healing skill like mediarama/rahan to back 
     up your healer in case the team has been damaged severely. Just keep 
     on attacking and healing until the battle ends. Good luck!

     Tip: these guys have high physical resistance so you’ll need to rely 
     on your elemental spells. Fortunately, their weakness can be easily 
     exploited. The only problem is that the Spastic turret has the “dodge 
     ice” skill that will occasionally make your bufu attacks miss. Also, 
     during prolonged battles, the turret can summon slaughter drives in 
     case you defeated the first two. The turret relies on heavy physical, 
     all-party attacks so keep your healer Busy and make sure you can 
     provide support in case your healer is having a hard time keeping your p
     arty’s HP up. One last thing to note is that when slaughter drives are 
     left with critical HP, they will self-destruct causing severe damage
     to all party members. Kill them all the way.

     Tip: The conceited maya alone is not that much of a threat. Just use 
     the most powerful offensive spells you have in your inventory. 
     Unfortunately, if you have Yukari in your party, she will be the main 
     target of the maya with its zio+cruel attack combo. Also, the maya 
     will be able to summon jotun of blood. This will cause problems since 
     they have the immunity against all elemental attacks; not to mention 
     that they can use the almighty skill megidola. So, to prevent this 
     from happening, try to defeat the maya as quickly as possible.

     Tip: The Acheron seekers are easy targets due to their dual weaknesses 
     but let them stay in the battle too long and they’ll cause havoc in 
     your party. They’ll love to cast instant-death skills as well as 
     status ailments. If you have kuromaru leveled up, you may consider 
     bringing him in this battle for his maragidyne and to serve as a 
     distraction agains the Acherons. Because of Koro’s innate weakness to 
     light, the Acherons will waste their turns trying to cast hamaon to 
     him. There will be always a 50-50 chance that their attack may connect 
     though. Your other alternatives will be junpei and akihiko. The 
     Cyclops have a hgh defense and counter. You may need to consider 
     striking it with the elements it is not immune against.

     Tip: these guys are physical-attack oriented. They will always buff
     themselves to increase their attack and de-buff your party to lower 
     your defenses. Tenjin and Kaiden musha don’t have any elemental 
     resistances so you may hit them with your –dyne skills. Naturally, 
     they have strong defenses so avoid using too much persona-based 
     physical attacks to keep your HP up. These guys can deal critical 
     hits and they are really good in taking advantage of it. I suggest 
     concentrating on one target at a time. Take out tenjin musha first 
     since it can cast healing skills. 


     After the battle, I suggest going back to resupply. Avoid fighting as 
     much as possible in the following floors since there is a major boss 
     battle on the final floor of this stage.

     +------------------------------------------------------------+
     
     Tip: there is really no specific tactic here since this boss’ attacks 
     will be based from the personas of your current team. Though the 
     copied persona’s resistance is retained, its weakness isn’t – which 
     means you can’t exploit it to get free turns. Just keep your party 
     healed and buffed if you have the chance. Compared to the previous 
     battles, this one is practically easy.

     Obtain Key of Time. Some more conversations and you’ll be transported 
     back to the lounge automatically. Watch as the conversation starts to 
     heat up…
     
     Once in control, save first and prepare for the upcoming battles. 
     Aigis and Metis will be your fixed team for now. Make sure you equip 
     the best equipment you have and stock on with supplies. Talk to metis 
     when ready.

     The door to the back leads back to the desert of doors in case you 
     forgot something. When ready, head to the large door. Your first 
     opponents will be Ken and Akihiko.
     
     
     +-----
     |Boss:\
     +------------------------------------------------------------+
     | Ken Amada                    Akihiko Sanada                |
     | NUL: light, dark             NUL: Elec, light, dark        |

     +------------------------------------------------------------+
     
     Concentrate on taking out Ken first since he has lower health and
     defense compared to aki. Assign target to metis then cast your own 
     buffs if you want to. You can use all-party “–dyne” attacks to deal 
     damage to them both. Once ken is down, aki won’t be that much of a 
     problem.

     |Boss:\
     +------------------------------------------------------------+

     +------------------------------------------------------------+
     
     Tip: These two have both fire-oriented personas. You’ll need to take 
     out Koro first since he has lower hP and def compared to junpei. Not 
     to mention that his mudoo can cause serious trouble if it connects. 
     If you have an accessory that provides immunity against fire attacks, 
     equip it to metis. You can then use surt while you pummel the guys 
     with your attacks.

     +------------------------------------------------------------+
     
     Finally, the last team you’ll need to battle. Mitsuru poses a threat 
     here since she can charm your characters. You can order metis to 
     concentrate her attacks to mitsuru while you cast buffs or use 
     all-party attacks.

     After the battles, you will have the true key. Watch more scenes. Your
     team will finally be back together. Once you have control, select your 
     best team and head out to the last door.



     -----------------------------------------------------------------

     This battle may take long depending on your level. This boss has 
     elemental –dyne attacks and a physical attack called almighty that 
     can deal critical damage to the whole team, knocking down some of 
     them as well. Use buffs as much as possible and attack with your most 
     powerful attacks. Fortunately, this boss doesn’t have any elemental 
     resistances though it has a whole lot of HP.

     Later in the battle, the boss will use a special attack called “dark 
     embrace”. The boss will charge up and create a dark sphere. You’ll 
     need to deal at least 800+ damage to stop dark embrace. Once that is 
     stopped successfully, the boss will be unable to make any moves and 
     you will have some free hits. Just continue on buffing your team to 
     maximize their damage. If you are dealing decent damage, the boss will 
     just use dark embrace once. After the battle, watch the wonderful 
     ending….

     Congratulations for finishing the answer!

     OTHER CHARACTERS...


     Ikutsuki   -  the chairman and the brain of SEES. He is charismatic,
                   calm and bright. Yet, something is not right about
                   him…

     Takeharu   -  Mitsuru’s father and the head of the Kirijo group.
       Kirijo      He was the only remaining survivor of the incident that
                   gave rise to the shadows, 10 years ago.

     Eiichiro   -  Yukari’s father. He was the head scientist of the project
       Takeba      that released the shadows to the world. He died in the
                   blast but was able to leave a recording about what
                   happened. Yet, the video was somehow manipulated by
                   someone for some reason…

     Igor       -  a mysterious figure that appears only in the main
                   character’s dreams and the dark hour. He is living in a
                   twilight dimension in the form of an elevator room that
                   has no definite stop. He has the power to fuse personas
                   and help the main character with his ordeals through
                   his unique abilities.


     Elizabeth  -  Igor’s assistant in the Velvet Room. She is as mysterious
                   as Igor and little is known about her as well.


     Pharos     -  the mysterious kid that greeted the main character when
                   he arrived. He appears during the Dark Hour to give his

                   for him. Later, he will be discovered as Death’s
                   embodiment.

     Ryoji      -  another equally mysterious transfer student that
                  arrived at Gekkoukan during the 2nd semester. Aigis is
                  really cautious and distant to him for some reason. He
                  looked like any playboy that is always chasing around
                  girls but he carries a dangerous secret within….


     Takaya     -  leader of Strega. They are a group of Persona-users that
                   roam the Dark Hour. Their intentions remain unknown
                   until later. It seems that their ability to control
                   personas is artificially enhanced…


     Jin        -  One member of the trio that makes up Strega. He is
                   popular in the internet and uses that to manipulate
                   people or cause trouble. He has a strong sense of
                   loyalty and respect towards Takaya and decided to
                   follow him wherever he goes.

     Chidori    -  the only female member of Strega. She is silent and
                   cold. She loves drawing by herself and carries her
                   sketchbook during the day. She later meets and falls
                   in love with one of the SEES members, Junpei.

     guide.)

     Rafflesia – The flower shop where you can buy flowers (and actually
                 stock them) to give them as gifts to your girlfriend(s).
                 Opens everyday.

     Screen Shot – The only movie theater in the area. The attributes that

     The back alley of Port Island is where you can visit to complete
     some of Elizabeth’s request. (These requests will be covered in a
     separate section of this guide.)



     IWATODAI STATION/STRIP MALL
     ===========================

     This is another great place to hangout if you have nothing to do. It
     has a lot of restaurants and fastfood that can help increase your
     attributes.

     Octopia – Takoyaki food stand. You need to buy at least one Takoyaki
               here that will be needed to establish a social link with
               the Girl at the Shrine (Hanged Man arcana)

     NAGANAKI SHRINE
     ===============

     The Shrine is where you can check your fortune and make some offerings
     to increase your academics. In FeS, this takes time so it is not 
     really recommended. In FeS also, you can spend your whole afterschool 
     period praying in the shrine for some random effects like increased 
     stamina and item conversion. When checking your fortune, you can now 
     increase your closeness to any of your social links. This is great for 
     catching up with contacts with difficult schedules. You can also fix 
     reversed social links here as well. Occasionally, if you have good 
     luck, you will find some yen and your condition may improve. However, 
     the opposite may occur when you have bad luck.

     When offering to the shrine, your academics may increase. Maiko (Girl 
     on the Shrine) can be found here everyday after school except Sundays.
     During Sundays, you will find Akinari (Sun Arcana) after you unlock 
     him by increasing Maiko’s social link. Also, this is where you take 
     Koromaru for a walk during the evening. You may encounter some friends 
     along the way, making you closer to them. When walking Koro alone, he 
     may pick up valuable items. A dorm mate may also join you when taking 
     a walk. This is also where the Summer Festival is held. A girlfriend 
     may join you during this event.


     GEKKOUKAN HIGH SCHOOL
     =====================

     This is the school where your character goes to. Though you can only
     see two homerooms here,  it is still “complete” in a sense.

     second floor has all the boys’ room, the girls’ room on the 3rd and 
     the meeting/command room at the 4th. The 5th floor is basically the 
     rooftop but it doesn’t have any use after the first incident when you 
     start the game.

     Lounge – This is the primary area where your team mates gather during 
              their free time. You can deploy to Tartarus by talking to 
              Mitsuru and later on, Fuuka. You can also complete some 
              requests that’ll require you to obtain specific items from 
              your teammates on specified dates

     Command Room - on major operations, your team gathers and deploys from 
             the command room. On free days, you can visit this room and 
             watch the taken by surveillance cameras installed in various 
             places (each of your rooms actually) you can watch some pretty 
             amusing clips by examining the central console.

     As mentioned in the quick start section at the start of this guide, 
     social links play a vital role in fusing powerful personas. Maxing 
     out a social link will enable you to create the Arcana’s ultimate form.
     The social link rank also determines how much bonus experience a 
     resulting persona will get during fusion. This section will discuss 
     how to establish all social links in the game and other related info.

     Establishing new social links can be done by making friends and 
     acquaintances with certain NPCs in the game. They could be your 
     classmates or just any other people from different walks of life. You 
     can also have intimate relationships with certain girls in your school.


     INCREASING the level of your social link will depend on how much time 
     you hang out with your friends and how you respond to your 
     conversations with them. Best answers will always result in an instant 
     rank up the next time you hang out with that person. For girls, the 
     best answers and giving them the gifts they like will dramatically 
     increase your relationship with them. Having the persona matching your 
     friend’s arcana when you talk to him/her will help a lot on 
     strengthening your relationship faster.

     REVERSED social links will be the result when that person gets mad or 
     uneasy about you. One most common example is when you go out with 
     another girl whilst you already have a girlfriend. Another thing is 
     that when you keep ignoring or haven’t hanged out with a friend. The 
     easiest way to reverse a social link is to decline an invitation you 
     already accepted to make way to another favored friend. For guys, not 
     hanging out with them for 90 days will usually result to a reversed 
     link. For girls, it should be around 60. Repair reversed social links 
     by talking to the person and invite him/her out. At first they may 
     decline the offer but keep on trying and they will eventually gave way 
     on the 2nd invitation onwards. Reading your fortune in Nagasaki Shrine 
     is a new way of mending relationships/friendships. This is available 
     on FES only.

     Maxing out a social link will enable you to create the Arcana’s 
     ultimate form. Once maxed, you will be able to continue and move on 
     with concentrate maxing out another S. Link.



    |>>>>........................ QUICK Q & A ......................<<<<|
                                    [SLK001]


     1.Why do I need to max those social links?

     Ans: To get the ultimate form of the Arcana based on the social link.
          If you are aiming for a 100% persona database, then you will be
          obliged to max  all social links. This will also prove useful
          if you want higher level resulting personas when fusing.


     2. Is it possible to max all social links within one year
        (playthrough)?

     Ans: Yes, it is possible. BUT you need to follow a VERY, VERY strict
          schedule, considering every single reply on your conversations
          with friends, the gifts you give them, the time you’ll spend
          with them. It should be near 100% accuracy…

          Not to mention that there are still Tartarus, exams and other
          events you will need to worry about. Some social links require
          a specific rank and attributes which will take a while to max
          out. Another thing is that that will take the fun out from the
          game since everything needs to be perfect.


     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.
     | TIP: For further details on how to max all Social links in one    |
     | playthrough, please refer to Penguin_Knight’s awesome Social Link |
     | faq in Gamefaqs.                                                  |
     | (http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/937269/52512)           |
     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.


     3.	I’m already sick with my current girlfriend so I decided to dump
        her and go out with Yukari/Mitsuru (or any other girl). How can
        I make sure that our social link won’t go on Reverse? This is
        just until I max out the link with my preferred girlfriend.


     Ans: It is still possible to have two girlfriends – BUT up to a
          single rank. Unless your relationship with the girl is not
          intimate, you can go out with any of them at the same time.

          Normally, if your S link level with a girl reaches level 5+, it
          will become intimate and you will get an in-game warning that
          she may get upset if you go out with another girl.  Technically
          speaking, you can go out with two or more girls up until each of
          them reaches intimate level. Once you get to the rank that
          everything gets steamy and serious, you will need to do
          everything you can to max out your ‘serious’ girlfriend so that
          you can forget about her and move into another serious
          relationship.


     4. Help! I reversed a social link! How can I un-reverse it? Why can’t
        I find  anymore? Will it start from zero if I
        leave it as is?


     Ans: You will need to talk to that person and invite him/her to
          hangout with you. Normally, some of them don’t stay on their
          regular places before. You need to look for them on the day
          they should be on and from another spot in the school. For
          example, if you reversed Yukari, she can be located by the
          school counter/shop. An angry Chihiro can be found in the
          Library. A pissed off Yuko is staying by the faucets leading
          to the Athletic clubs’ rooms. Fuuka will be in front of the
          cultural arts billboard and so on.

          For the second question, no it won’t. The link will get
          unreversed once you fix it and you two can start from where you
          left off.


     5. What happens to all the social links I have maxed out when I start
        a new game?

     Ans: You will need to start over fresh. For further information on
          what will carry over when you start  a new game, check out the
          POST GAME NOTES section on this guide, just a few pages before
          this section.


     6.	I received some key items from my maxed friends. What good will it
        do?

     Ans: As far as practicality is concerned, they don’t do anything .
          They will just serve as mementos from your friends which you
          have “unbreakable bond” with.



     7. What  are the gifts should I give to my girlfriends? Is there any
        importance in that?

     Ans: First of all, as I observed, increasing your s.link rank with a
          girlfriend is harder compared to your normal friend. Just think
          that each answer you give them has corresponding points, which
          you need to gather required points to level up the social link
          Girlfriends normally has higher required points, as far as I
          experienced in the game.

          Each of the girls has their own preferences and tastes. One gift
          may work well on one chick but the other may dislike it.
          Fortunately, you can use the same gift a girlfriend likes
          everytime you have the chance.

          The important  thing is that when you give the appropriate gift
          for your girlfriend, the next time you go out with her means an
          instant rank up.

          Here is the list++ of the preferred gifts of the game’s potential
          girlfriends:  Most favored gifts increase your relationship
          dramatically. Good gifts will still make them happy but with
          small-average increase with your relationship. Other gifts not
          on the list won’t make any changes.

    |>>>>..........MORE SOCIAL LINK + ATTRIBUTES NOTES/FAQS:..........<<<<|
                                    [SLK002]


     Due to the games’ very limited time, you will really need to consider
     everything. Make sure you make the most out of everyday. Like what I
     mentioned a while ago, if you are planning to max out all social
     links in one playthrough, you will undergo a very rigid and tight
     schedule - which I think will take the fun away from the game.

     Since your compendium data, attributes and other goodies are carried
     over on your second playthrough, I suggest just max out everything
     you can in your first run, create the ultimate arcana for those links
     and on your second playthrough, just max out the other links you were
     not  able to max  at  all.

     To better understand on how to efficiently manage your time each day,
     I will divide all the social links contacts into three groups. First
     are your SCHOOL contacts, NON-SCHOOL contacts and STORY links.

     School contacts are your classmates and schoolmates who can only
     talk/invite during normal school days. They will be available after
     school. Note that all of them will be unavailable during PRE-EXAM
     WEEKS. (One week before the semestral examinations)


     The following NPCs are your school contacts:

     Yukari Takeba          – (Lovers)
     Fuuka Yamagishi        – (Priestess)
     Yuko Nishiwake         – (Strength)
     Mitsuru Kirijo         – (Empress)
     Chihiro Fushimi        – (Justice)
     Kazushi Miyamoto       – (Chariot)
     Nozomi Suemitsu        - (Moon)
     Bebe                   – (Temperance)
     Kenji Tomochika        - (Magician)
     Hitedoshi Odagiri      – (Emperor)
     Keisuke Hiraga         – (Fortune)
     Aigis                  - (Aeon)

     Non-school contacts are self-explanatory. These are those people whom
     you can visit during pre-exam weeks, holidays and Sundays.
     The following are your non-school contacts.

     Maya                   – (Hermit)
     Bunchiki and Mitsuko   – (Hierophant)
     Presiden Tanaka        – (Devil)
     Maiko                  – (Hanged Man)
     Mamoru Hayase          – (Star)
     Akinari Kamiki         – (Sun)

     Story related links such as Fool, Death and Judgement will
     automatically increase during certain story elements.

     Mitsuko      - Everyday except Sundays
     President Tanaka – Tuesday and Saturday nights
     Maiko        - Everyday except Sundays
     Akinari      – Sundays only
     Maya         – Holidays, Sundays
     Mutatsu      – Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (night only)


     Also occasionally, if you didn’t go to Tartarus, you may receive a
     phone call from one of your friends to invite you to go out on
     Sundays. This won’t happen if there are restricted events scheduled
     to happen on Sundays. Accepting this offer will automatically spend
     your whole Sunday with that person. This will present a chance to
     strengthen your relationship with a friend though you will still need
     to go out with them during their regular schedules to increase the
     rank of the Social Link.


     Contacts that may call and invite you to go out on Sundays are the
     following.

     Chihiro, Yuko, Mitsuru, Yukari, Fuuka
     Kazushi, Keisuke, Kenji, Bebe





    |>>>>.................... MANAGING YOUR TIME ..................<<<<|
                                  [SLK004]


     Making the most out of your day is really important if you are
     planning to max most of the social links. Planning ahead on what you
     want to do play a great role in increasing your attributes to unlock
     more Social Links. Doing side events correctly also helps on
     increasing your attributes. Take note that when a friend invites you
     during lunchtime to hang out with him/her afterschool, it will be an
     instant rank up for the social link.

     Also, lectures only happen once a day. That means that the choices
     to Doze off or Stay awake or to answer questions will only happen
     once per day.


     Refer to the example schedule below:

     L 	– Friend may invite you.

     A 	- Lecture, give correct answer (+Charm); May happen in the
          morning

     AS – Go out with friend. (Rank Up), escort Elizabeth (depends on her
          request)

     E – Save, go out to the mall. At night you can either go to the Café
         to increase your Charm or to the Karaoke Bar++ to increase your
         courage, play some games to increase character/persona stats
         and increase ranks of Tower or Devil Arcanas

     LN - Study before going to Sleep.


     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.
     | ++ Karaoke Bar (Mandragora) is available from Mondays to Thursdays|
     |    only.                                                          |
     .-------------------------------------------------------------------.


     Or, when you’re tired, you can do the following:

     AS - Visit Nurse’s office, agree to drink concoction* . (+Courage)
        - Go out with any of your friends to increase
          level.

     E  - Visit Paulownia Mall and enter Café or Karaoke.

     LN - Sleep early.**


     .------------------------------------------------------------------.
     | * After visiting the nurse, try relieving yourself in the        |
     |   bathroom to have a chance to improve your condition.           |
     .------------------------------------------------------------------.

     .------------------------------------------------------------------.
     |** Don’t bother studying when you’re tired or sick. It will just  |
     |   be a waste of time.                                            |
     .------------------------------------------------------------------.



     Once you unlock Mutatsu (Strange Monk) and President Tanaka 
     (Businessman) social links, you can add them to your evening schedules.

     As you can see, whether you have school or not, try to visit the
     Shrine as much as possible. This will help you increase your
     Academics faster than normal means. To make the most out of your
     limited time, stick to one rule:

     " Go out with school contacts during normal school days and go out
       only with non-school contacts during Sundays or Holidays."
       (Unless invited by school contacts)

     Believe me, there are more than enough holidays and Sundays compared
     to the normal school days so you don’t need to visit a non-school
     contact when you should be going out with a friend from school.

    |               The Persimmon Tree growing in the open lot inside the|
    |               school meant so much for them since it was their son |
    |               that planted it there. The tree had to be cut down   |
    |               however, to make way for a new school building       |
    |               expansion. After getting many signatures to petition |
    |               for the tree not to be cut down, the old couple      |
    |               decided to do it otherwise since they “don’t want to |
    |               deprive the next students of new learning            |
    |               opportunities”. The main character helped them       |

    |               is. Maya gives away a few facts that tell you exactly|
    |               who she is. First, she's a teacher. Second, she has a|
    |               superior called Mr. E. Third, she, this is the kicker|

    |               with a student of hers and that his parents died ten |
    |               years ago and in the last couple of lines you read   |
    |               she says "(charactername)-kun will fall in love with |
    |               me before the weekends over". Also she tells you she |
    |               teaches composition. If you piece all of this        |
    |               together you get that her superior is Mr. Ekoda your |
    |               history teacher and that Maya is ta dah da-daaa      |

     P3FeS introduced a new feature called weapon fusion. You can do this 
     in the antique Shop in Paulownia mall. You will need raw materials 
     called Nihil. They are basically “blank” weapons which you can fuse 
     personas to give special powers. Nihil weapons are normal drops from 
     golden/rare shadows – as long as you don’t have a “medal” request 
     (see the requests section) active. The second requirement is a persona.
     Remember that if you fused a persona, you will lose it forever. Also, 
     weapon fusions may take from 1 to 2 days to complete.


     There will be two kinds of weapon fusions; the basic and the unique 
     fusions. Unique fusions will always have the same result; no matter 
     what Nihil weapon you use, as long as you have the special persona
     capable of a unique fusion, you'll always get the same weapon. Basic 
     fusions in the other hand, will just take the shape of the material 
     and of course, weaker compared to unique weapons. Basic fused weapons 
     can also be “recycled” once you have the persona you want for a unique 
     fusion. This will be very helpful in case you need a good weapon but 
     don’t have the persona necessary for fusing your “final” weapon. The 
     most powerful weapons in the game can only be acquired by weapon 
     fusion. All final weapons have the same stat; 450ATK, 100% accuracy
     and +10 to all stats. (Except for Metatronius with only 94% acc and 
     Evil Gloves 99%)

     Listed below is the alphabetical list of all unique weapon fusions 
     in the game:

     Occasionally when fusing personas, they will be holding an item within 
     them. This is symbolized by a red heart. To get the item, that persona 
     must reach a certain level. Items acquired this way can’t be bought or 
     found anywhere else; not to mention that they have unique effects that 
     is beneficial to the user.

    Messiah is the only one capable of dropping different items, including 
    the very rare Omnipotent Orb. He drops the ultimate equipment for your 
    party. To get multiple items from him, you’ll need to level him up to 
    level 96 (heart item “matures” on LV97) then left as little exp as 
    possible to reach the next level. Register him that way and fight 
    battle(s) to reach lv97. After getting the item, you can dismiss him 
    and get him again from the compendium and repeat. Just warning though, 
    Messiah doesn’t come cheap; so if you already have more than enough 
    (you don’t need two copies of aigis’ and koro’s ultimate equipment),
    load your game. Item drops are always based on luck so you’ll need a 
    lot of time (and money) to fully equip your fighting party at least.


    The following items are dropped by Messiah:

    Armor of Light
    Shoes of Light
    Aura Dog Suit
    Soul of Athena
    Swan Legs
    Omnipotent Orb

     ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++                               +++++++
       ELIZABETH'S REQUEST                                        ELR000
     ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++                               +++++++

     These requests are the only sidequests available in the game. 
     Completing them will reward you with rare and powerful items/equipment.
     Some requests have time restrictions/ deadlines while most of them can 
     be taken and completed anytime.

     Requests come in different flavors. The time restricted requests can 
     be completed only within a certain amount of time, normally before 
     the next full moon comes. Most of them require you to collect items 
     dropped by shadows or obtain the old documents. For requests that 
     require you to collect item drops from Shadows, you need to accept the 
     request first; otherwise, those specific enemies will just drop normal 
     items. The opposite is true if you still haven’t surrendered the 
     collected items to Elizabeth to close the request. Even if you have 
     met your quota for that requested item, as long as the request is 
     still active, you will still continue to receive the special item 
     dropped by those enemies – which are pretty useless since they don’t 
     sell that much in shops.

     Remember that a request must be accepted first before the needed 
     events take place. Also note for requests that rely on monster drops 
     (medals from rare shadows), they will continue dropping the requested 
     item as long as you have the request active. Return to Elizabeth to 
     complete the request and their drops will return to normal. This is 
     essentially important if you are collecting Nihil materials from the 
     golden shadows.

     In FES, the new requests consists of after-school “dates” with 
     Elizabeth, talking to dorm mates on specific dates to acquire the 
     1requested items. The requests are not the verbatim of Elizabeth or 
     how exactly you can see it from the game. I took the liberty of 
     summing it up to make it easier to understand. Take note that if you 
     start your game on the second playthrough, you can easily complete the
     “Perform ” requests if you have already performed them 
     in the first playthrough.



     1. Retrieve (1) Beetle Shell from Grave Beetles in floors 6-15, 1st
        block Thebel

     Deadline  : 05/07
     Difficulty: XX
     Reward    : 12000 yen


     TIP: Look for small shadows. As mentioned in the game, the size of the
     shadow pertains how many enemies are inside it. Grave Beetles are
     always alone so look for the smallest shadows and battle them on
     the specified floors. They can be powerful but they pack a bit more
     experience compared to the normal enemies you face. Use Garu (wind)
     against it to win without any hassles. As long as the request is still
     active, all grave beetles you’ll encounter will only drop beetle shells



     2.	Retrieve the first old document in the top of Tartarus, 1st Block,
        Thebel.

     Deadline  : 05/07
     Difficulty: X
     Reward    : Bead Chain x1

     TIP: You just need to get past through the guardian (Rampage Drive) of
     this block by defeating it. You’ll find the document once you reached 
     the top (16F). Refer to the main walkthrough for tips on how to defeat 
     this boss.


     3.	Obtain Muscle Drink then give it to Elizabeth.

     Deadline   : NONE
     Difficulty : X
     Reward     : Revival Bead x3

     TIP: You can immediately complete this request since Muscle Drinks are
     normal items in chests. If you don’t have it, you can buy it from the
     Pharmacy inside the Paulownia Mall.



     4.	Defeat Phantom Mages on floors 17-24 of 2nd Block, Arqa and
        retrieve (3) Old Lanterns

     Deadline  : 06/06
     Difficulty: XX
     Reward    : 31,000 Yen

     TIP:  These are drops from uncommon enemies called Phantom Mages. They
     usually by two’s and sometimes associated with other shadows. Just
     hunt shadows down and you should be able to encounter them easily



     5.	Retrieve the second old document

     Deadline  : 06/06
     Difficulty: X
     Reward    : Balm of Life (x1)

     TIP:  Like the first one, you need to defeat the guardian first which
     is located in the 36th floor. The old document is four floors up, in
     40F Arqa. Refer to the main walkthrough for tips on how to defeat the 
     boss.


     6.	Create Jack Frost with (healing skill) Dia.

     Deadline  : NONE
     Difficulty: XXX
     Reward    : High-cut armor (x1)

     TIP:  It will be hard to create a Jack Frost at this moment. But if
     you want to, you can combine Orpheus (register him first) and Forneus
     to get a Jack Frost. Or you can try fusing Pixie and Unicorn as well.

     There will be other combinations as well so take note of them. Note
     that sometimes the skills carried over to the resulting Persona are
     not always the same so you can always exit the screen and come back.


     7.	Defeat the Wealth Hand in the 1st Block, Thebel and retrieve (1)
        Lead Medal

     Deadline  : NONE
     Difficulty: XXX
     Reward    : Toy Bow (x1)

     TIP:  This is a drop from a rare enemy, called the Wealth Hand. It is
     found in Thebel but occasionally appears in the upper floors. Look
     for those gold/yellow colored shadows.

     Be wary though; they will run away and disappear once they see you.
     It’s better to sneak from behind and attack them. These critters are
     weak against physical attacks but do escape from battle as well.



     8.	Create a Valkyrie with the support skill, Tarukaja

     Deadline  : NONE
     Difficulty: XXX
     Reward    : Torn Black Cloth (to create Pale Rider)

     TIP: You’ll need to combine any Priestess or Emperor personas with a
     Hermit persona. (e.g Forneus +Yomotsu Shikome) At least one of them
     should carry the skill Tarukaja. Note that it’s possible that the skill
     won’t be inherited on the preview (resulting persona) screen so cancel,
     go back to the last screen and press X to enter again. Do this over and
     over again to shuffle the inherited skills until you get the preferred
     skill.



     9.	Defeat Bronze Dice on floors 41-46 of 2nd Block Arqa

     Deadline  : 07/05
     Difficulty: XX
     Reward    : Sigma Drive

     TIP: These are drops from those Bronze Dice enemies that are found in
     the indicated floors. You won’t find them on floors 47+. Use Electric
     attacks to get rid of them quickly.




     10. Defeat the (red/strong) Lustful snakes in the 2nd block, Arqa and
         retrieve (3) Snake Scales

     Deadline: 07/05
     Difficulty: XXX
     Reward: 46,000 yen

     TIP: This could be a bit trickier since you will need to find those
     strong enemies (glowing pink) and defeat them. They are tough but give
     a good amount of experience too. Use Ice attacks against them.




     11. Retrieve the third old document.

     Deadline  : 07/05
     Difficulty: X
     Reward    : Traesto Gem (x3)

     TIP: Just like the first two old documents, these are located the
     top floor of the previous blocks, you need to defeat the guardian
     to proceed. This is on floor 64.



     12. Retrieve (1) Google-Eyed Idol

     Deadline  : None
     Difficulty: X
     Reward    : Bladefist

     TIP: The Google-Eyed idol can be acquired from the Antique Shop. Just
     trade 2 Turquoises for it. These are normal enemy drops from Phantom
     Mages.



     13. Retrieve Shell of a Man

     Deadline  : None
     Difficulty: XXX
     Reward    : Land Badge

     TIP: Visit the laboratory in Gekkokan’s first floor and enter the
     room. You will get the Anatomical Model. Surrender it to Elizabeth
     to close the request.




     14. Defeat the Treasure Hand in 2nd Block, Arqa and retrieve 1 Steel
         Medal

     Deadline  : None
     Difficulty: XXX
     Reward    : Spiked Bat

     TIP: Like the wealth hand, this rare monster belongs to the same
     family of golden, hand-shaped shadows. They appear occasionally on
     any floors of the specified block and they will flee as soon as they
     get sight of you. As usual, sneak up behind for the kill.




     15. Create an Oberon (LV17+)

     Deadline  : None
     Difficulty: XX
     Reward    : Coin of Knight (x3)

     TIP: Oberon is an Emperor persona. That means you need to fuse any of
     the following personas.

     Magician + Justice/ Fortune/ Lovers
     Empress + Justice
     Hierophant + Chariot/ Fortune
     Hermit + Fortune

     Note that the available personas under those Arcanas should suffice in
     creating an Oberon.

     If your Student Council social link is high enough to get the
     resulting Oberon to LV17, then that is good. Otherwise, you may need
     to use him on your battles to level him up sufficiently.If you don’t 
     want to get Oberon via Fusion, it can be won as a reward (Shuffle Time)
     during enemy encounters in the lower floors (40F+)



     16. Bring a strong medicine to Elizabeth

     Deadline  : None
     Difficulty: XXX
     Reward    : Amrita Water X3

     TIP: It is easier to do this when after a major operation or after you
     have explored tartarus. Once tired, visit the school nurse immediately.
     Don’t drink the concoction and he will give you the medicine instead.



     17. Bring Elizabeth a song that is associated with your school
         (Funky school music)

     Deadline  : None
     Difficulty: XXX
     Reward    : Bus Stop Sign x1

     TIP: Enter the PA room (just across your homeroom) and obtain the
     Gekkoukan Boogie. Bring it to Elizabeth to complete the request.




     18. Defeat Creation Relics on floors 65-77 of the 3rd Block, Yabbashah
         to retrieve 5 Relic Fragments

     Deadline  : 08/04
     Difficulty: X
     Reward    : Medical Powder (x5)

     TIP: These enemies are weak to Mudo/ Darkness attacks. They are common
     enemies so you can definitely get 5 fragments easily.




     19. Defeat the (red-glowing) Wild Drives in the 3rd Block, Yabbasah
         to retrieve 3 Greasy Gears

     Deadline  : 08/04
     Difficulty: XX
     Reward    : 70,000 yen

     TIP: Just like those other “strong” monsters, you can quickly spot
     them since they are glowing red/pink. Be careful not to let your
     guard down when facing these enemies. They can whack you up real
     good if you’d let them. Use Zio/Electric attacks to defeat them
     easily.



     20. Retrieve the fourth old document

     Deadline  : 08/05
     Difficulty: X
     Reward    : Balm of Life (x3)

     the 89th floor. (Refer to the main walkthrough)

         Bronze Medal

     22. Create Vetala with the Fire Skill, Maragi

     Deadline  : None
     Difficulty: XXX
     Reward    : Sugar Key (King Frost)

     TIP: Vetala is a Devil persona. So this time, you will need to fuse 
     Pyro Jack + Inugami. Just “refresh” the combination if you can’t 
     inherit the skill.



     23. Create Orthus with the skill Dodge Slash

     Deadline  : None
     Difficulty: XXX
     Reward    : Tigerhide Belt

     Difficulty: XXX
     Reward    : Chewing Soul x6

     51. Create Lilith with Mabufudyne

     Deadline  : None
     Difficulty: XXXX
     Reward    : Sacrificial Idol

     TIP: This can be a little tricky. With all the four base personas
     (Lilim, Vetala, Incubus, Succubus), none of them can learn Mabufudyne
     innately. This means you need to create one of them via fusion and
     inherit Mabufudyne from another persona. With the four base personas,
     only Succubus can learn Mabufudyne.

     Consider the following combinations for Succubus. One of the base
     personas for Succubus SHOULD HAVE Mabufudyne.

     Magician + Chariot\ Hanged Man
     Empress + Chariot\ Death
     Emperor + Justice

     already. If you are still a few levels short, bring him into battles
     until he levels up sufficiently.




     53. Retrieve 1 Bloody Button by defeating The Reaper.

     Deadline  : None
     Difficulty: XXXXX
     Reward    : 5,000,000 Yen

     TIP: I suggest to be at least level 70+ minimum before facing this
     Shadow. The higher, the better. This enemy is still a threat even if
     all your characters are at LV99. First tip, DO NOT USE MAGIC/ATTACK
     MIRRORs. This will trigger the Reaper to use Megidolaon EVERY TURN.
     Even with Mediarahan, that will pose a problem.

     Next: Have a party member or two take care of the support/ healing.
     When I battled the Reaper, my preferred party was Yukari, Mitsuru and
     Aigis. Yukari is essential for healing/ reviving allies while Aigis’
     party affecting support skills on Heal/Support mode helps a lot in
     keeping the party afloat. You can replace Mitsuru with any strong
     attacker you may have.

     For the offensive, use MEGIDOLAON. This enemy has very strong damage
     resistance and good evasion rate. Megido skills are almost always
     accurate (96-99%) and has no attribute (sure to pierce through any
     resistance) so this is your attack skill of choice.

     Death is dangerous for having high level attacks, damaging spells and
     instant death attacks. As long as you have a good supply of Homunculus,
     you will be safe from these kinds of attacks

     Don’t hesitate to use your rare consumables such as Balms of Life,
     Soma, etc. You won’t need them in your last battles since you could
     be strong as hell that you would laugh out at Nyx.



     Or if you want to win within 1 turn, just use Helel and satan’s
     ARMAGEDDON fusion spell. IT deals 9999 damage and uses all your MP
     but its worth it.




     54. Defeat the Glorious Hands in the 6th Block Adamah to retrieve 3
         Platinum Medals

     Deadline  : None
     Difficulty: XXXX
     Reward    : Jack’s Gloves

     TIP: Now you need to collect three of those medals. These enemies are
     hard as ever but since you’ll need to clear Adamah before the final
     battle, there will always be a good chance to find them along the way.



     55. Defeat the Ultimate Opponent
         (THIS MISSION WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE ON YOUR 2nd WALKTHROUGH)

     Deadline  : None
     Difficulty: XXXXX
     Reward    : Omnipotent Orb

     TIP: Climb up to the 10th floor of Monad ALONE. Find Elizabeth on the
     top floor.


     character level and equipped the best armor you can find, Elizabeth 
     can pretty much eliminate your with ease. She can also utilize the 
     power of different personas so her attacks changes as well. Your 
     secret for winning is Armageddon but since that will leave you with 
     zero mp, you will use one turn to use an item to completely restore 
     your HP. 

     Elizabeth’s HP is roughly around 19998 so your objective is to 
     successfully cast two armageddons on her. You should take note that 
     Elizabeth can restore her HP to full using diarahan and her Megidolaon 
     can deal 9999 damage to you. Unfortunately, she also takes two actions 
     in one turn. I suggest maxing satan or helel’s stats using the cards 
     or the stat bonuses from the arcade games. Now for surviving the 
     attacks. You’ll need three things to auto revive yourself:

     1. Messiah’s innate skill called Enduring soul
     2. sacrificial idol
     3. plume of dusk

     It also takes luck since when I fought her, she spammed me with
     Megidolaon 3 times in a row. Good luck!

     CLOSING NOTES --------------------------------------------- CRD001


     So there you go. I have originally created an exclusive PDF guide
     for IGN but I decided to write a text version for easy distribution
     and download of the file. I am writing walkthroughs for free however,
     aside from the time spent, some expenses needs to be handled like
     electric bills, internet service and other materials. I would greatly
     appreciate donations in any amount to support my current and future
     projects. If you are feeling generous and you would like to spare me
     a dollar or two, you can send it to my PayPal account: 

                             Vhayste@gmail.com
