***GENERAL QUESTIONS******************************************************

Q: What is a "Piece"
A: Pieces are the floating continents through out the game

Q: Where is Marion?
A: Go to the Doll Castle.  Search the dungeon for a Marion Doll.  After getting
   the doll, bring it to Noiman's house.  Go to a dungeon and exit the dungeon
   or switch characters and go back to Noiman's house.  The Marion doll will
   grow and join your party!  Just go back to Hitsuji and the companion choices
   should now have Marion.

Q: How do I end the game?
A: The opposite of how you started the game!  What?  You don't know?  The game
   starts by having a magic book open.  You must find the book to end the game
   (in other words, end the story).  After closing the book, go to the
   characters "Piece" and the game will end there.  See below in () for the
   character and the dungeon piece they are related to.

Q: How many dungeons are there?
A: 7 main dungeons (The first dungeon with the knight is only a mini-dungeon)

   Below is a list

   0) Clock Tower (Sword) 
   1) Fire Mountain Cave 
   2) Forest Battle Field (Rao)
   3) King's Tomb (Ryle)
   4) Grand Labyrinth (Marlin)
   5) Downtown (Lady) 
   6) Doll Castle (Marion)
   7) Last Dungeon

*****DUNGEON CONCEPTS**********************************************************

There are many subtle things know when traveling about the dungeons.  

Q: What is the Investigate (X button) used for and what is satiety?  
A: The X button is important in uncovering traps and items within in the dungeon
  (the orange/grey sections in the game).  But there is a cost.  Your satiety
  (fullness) meter decreases.  The satiety meter also reduces over time.  If you
  satiety meter is reduced down to 0 you will start losing hit points over time.
  Think of this condition as starving.  It will only increase again if you eat
  fruit.  There a special fruit with the only purpose is to recover that meter
  (make you full again!).  See the items section for more detail.

Q: Why am I not allowed in the dungeon?    
A: All characters require you to have a set number of items when you enter the
   dungeon.  For example Sword can only enter a dungeon with 4 items regardless
   of his rank.  But Rao can enter a dungeon with 6 items.  When in town, pull
   up the item menu and you will see that the menu has a transparent black bars
   near the button. Anything still in the tan/brown area is the character item
   limit for the dungeon.

Q: What are the ways I can exit a dungeon?
A: There are several ways to exit.  Below is a list.
   1) Finish off the boss in the dungeon and then exit
   2) Use an escape item (or magic).  
   3) Main character's hit points are reduced to 0.

Q: What happens when I die in a dungeon?
A: Here's the list
   1) You will lose all items that are not equipped
   2) Equipped items may get broken
   3) You will lose all unregistered monsters
   4) Any monsters that died in battle need to be revived by Dr. Anna
   5) Penalty is applied if you have a quest (some quests do not have penalties)
  
Q: Where do I buy escape items?
A: You must trade your money in at the VMU Device in the monster house for
   tokens.  Use the barter option and buy the escape item there.  It is the
   first item on the barter list.  It's best used to finish up quests without
   having to fight the end boss. 
 
Q: Why is my level always reduced down to 1 when I re-enter a dungeon?
A: This keeps the dungeon a challenge by putting restrictions on what you can
   bring in to a dungeon.  But your Rank/Title and skills/magic will stay the
   same.

Q: Why LOCK/UNLOCK skills/magic before a dungeon/floor and why unequip items in
   battle?
A: This is an important concept.  If you don't do this then certain commands
   will not be available.  For example, if an item/skill causes your agility to
   be blue (review your status!) you may not be able to use the movement command
   during battle.  This also applies to skills.  If all your skills are unlocked 
   when going into a dungeon (which causes some status to be blue) you may not 
   be able to use any skills for the length of the floor until your attributes
   meet the required level.  The same reason goes for unequipping in battle.
   For example, if you get inflicted with a parameter down condition, you may 
   want to unequip an item to open up some your option again, but you can
   usually survive battle without having to do so.  Hopefully you can use your
   monsters as back up! 

Q: How do you save in a dungeon?
A: You can only save in a dungeon when you get to the next floor.  This is the
   First option in the second NEXT DUNGEON SCREEN.  As a word of warning, if you
   start a game and you reset the game, you will lose that save.  The dungeon
   saves are temporary.

Q: How will I know if I've maxed out my Rank/Title?
A: It will turn yellow.  Remember this also applies to monsters in your party.

    collection warehouse (1 being the picture from the Yutakana Jinsei Pakku 
    game).  As far as I know, this is only for show and serves no purpose.      

***NOIMAN'S QUESTS*************************************************************

Noiman is where you go on quests to get rare items.  It's true that you may
acquire them on you own but you may find it quick to take a quest to get the
item/skill.  For example, you could find the Yogurt Ring in the dungeon or you
could take a quest and receive one for all your hard work.

Noiman has 6 types of quests.

Boss Attack - Fight the boss in the dungeon specified

Item Search - Collect the items 

Monster Search - Fight a certain number of specific monsters 
                 (picture of monster appears in the hint box) 

Monster Capture and Raise - Capture a monster and raise the creature 
                            above the level specified

Monster Attack - Attack a large number of monsters

Search Dungeon Completely - Search the level specified completely 
                            (Level should be full explored - all green)

**********************VMU MINI-GAMES********************************************

There are a total of 6 mini-games in Climax Landers which are accessed via the
first room to the right in the monster house.  There are S versions of certain
games, as well as other VMU called the Great Game.  I was unable to get the 
"Great Game" and I don't know the difference between the S versions of the games
other then the expensive price.  I may update later if I came across these
games again.  

MONEY CHEAT

There is also a money cheat you can do to increase your money.  First, sell 
everything you got.  If you have lengendary items, sell them to Noiman. Next,
Download a game that requires you to transmit tokens.  Then transmit your tokens
to your VMU.  Reset the game again and you will notice that you didn't lose any
money and the tokens are still in your VMU.  Transfer the tokens back and you've
increased your money by 50%!  Repeat as often as you like.  You can also just 
keep converting money and transfering the tokens to the VMU after each reset 
until you're ready to transfer them back.  Remember to save after the final
transfer back to the main game or all your work will be wasted.  Now can go to
the blacksmith brothers, strengthen the lengendary items and reduce the
parameter requirements to 0! You can also buy three lengendary items from the
barter method from the VMU Menu.  Time to put that money to good use!

*************Hitsubishi Pack (Waste of Time Games) - 103 Blocks needed 

4 mini games total.  See below for a description of each.

**** Chicken Catch (Niwatori Tsukami Tori) ****

Concept of the game is to catch chickens and throw them back into the
fenced area located at the top of the screen within 30 seconds.  

     Controls
     A button - pick up/throw the chicken
     B button - jump
     Directional Pad - Movement

**** Super Exotic Slot Machine ****

Must have tokens to play this game.  Below is the Third Option in the 
VMU DEVICE MENU and what you will need before you get started.  The game
itself is self explainatory.

Token --> Barter/Exchange  
      --> Transmit Income (Transfer tokens back from the VMU)
      --> *Take Out (Transfer tokens to VMU)
      --> *Buy (Tokens) - Cost is 100 
      --> Turn into money (Tokens) - You get 50 in exchange for your token

(*) marked is what you need to play the game.  First choose Buy, then Take Out
to transfer tokens to the game. Use Transmit Income to transfer your winnings 
or what's left if you lost back into the game.  Then turn your tokens back 
into money for a very bad exchange rate.  But you can win very big from
the slot machine regardless of the exchange rate.  Your best bet is to get 
a Yogurt in the 1st position to break even.  A second one will get you 3
times your bet and a third will get you 10 times your bet!  Your max bet
is 3.  So are you ready to gamble?

This little program allows you to create animation (with 8 frames) and personize
your VMU with the creation of your own icon.  The image can also be displayed 
in your game as a picture in your collection warehouse.  Check the fifth option
in the VMU menu to transmit the pictures.  Note that the first save file will 
the one that is saved as your Picture Frame/Icon.

**** Blazing Phone Directory (Honou No Denwachou) ****

This is basically your own personal phone directory.  When you first use the 
program, it will ask to enter your profile.  This is used to transfer your 
information to other friends VMU.  The data entry is different from the save
in the Climax Edit.  On the first row, second entry to the right is where you
select the text type.  Keep hitting the A button to cycle through the choices.
It will always display the next set of characters to choose from.  Next choose

if you are using the English character set, move your cursor to the "D" and hit
the A button to get "E", and again to get "F".  Hit the A button one more time

*************Yogurt no DaiBouKen (Yogurt's Great Adventure) - 108 Blocks needed

This is an odd little game.  You must wait until your friendship meter increases 
and then you can control Yogurt....sort of.

At the start you have two choices, What's Yogurt and Yogurt's Mansion.
What's Yogurt has two choices "Going on an Errand" and "Treasure Hunt"  You need
to get Yogurt to go into the 4 buildings in "Going on an Errand" and in "Treasure Hunt" you need Yogurt to find the treasure from one of the 10
locations.  You will either get a bone or a treasure.  If you find a treasure
the games ends.  Yogurt on the map is a / or \ and the "goals" are _| or |-.
The max the friendship meter can reach is 30 and once you have control over
Yogurt, you can only hope that he will go in the building or dig up a treasure.
Once your friendship meter goes to 0 you will lose control over Yogurt.  Also,
once your action meter (located on the bottom left hand side of the screen)
reaches 0 your game will be over.  

Yogurt's Mansion contains a 10 room mansion.  Each door has a Yogurt in a room 
doing different things.  Only the 1st room is available.  Later, other rooms
will have Yogurts after you play the quest part of the game.
