Version 0.1(7/6/99)
This FAQ tells about the wonderful world of creating items out of metals 
in Star Ocean : The Second Story.  This version includes most of the 
items Ashton, Claude, Celine, Rena, Bowman, Chisato, Leon and Noel can 
make via metalworking and some of the items that can be made through 
blacksmithing.

Version 0.2(7/9/99)
Put the names in alphabetical order. Added new blacksmith items.  Added 
what the characters say when they mess up.  Updated items for all 
characters. Added two new sections.  Their should be a list of items and 
their properties in the next update.  Also, all Characters except Ernest 
should have items in the next update(forgot to get him, I'll have to 
wait until universe mode for his items).


*************************
2. Metalworking Overview
*************************

In order to be able to work with the metal, a character must learn the 
skills Craft(Technique 2), Esthetic Sense(Sensibility 1) and 
Mineralogy(Knowledge 1).  The secret talents "Originality" and 
"Dexterity" may be unlocked through metalwork, unlocking the talents of 
a person gets you 100 skill points for that person.  If a character 
doesn't know these skills, usually if you use a Super Specialty 
Orchestra and choose Item Creation => Metalwork, a character has a 
better chance of learning because Orchestra increases you chance of a 
successful session.  While it is possible to make items with a skill 
level less than ten, it is recomended that your level be ten.  Most 
common metals can be bought in tool shops, with the exception of: 
Moonite, Sage's Stone, Star Ruby and Rainbow Diamond which can be 
created through alchemy, or bought in level six of the Heraldic 
Cave/Secret Dungeon from one of Santa's Associates which randomly 
appears there.

**************************
3. Blacksmithing Overview
**************************

To be able to blacksmith your party members must know the specialties 
Customize and Alchemy.  You must also have the item Smith's Hammer.  
Mithril, Sage's Stone, Meteorite, Damascus, Moonite and Orichalcum must 
be bought in level six of the Secret Dungeon.  Some enemies rarely drop 
these also.

Blacksmithing, being a super specialty, requires that as many people in
the party as possible have maxed levels of the specialty, for a higher
success rate.

*******************
4. Metalwork Items
*******************

These are the items each person can produce from the skill metalwork.  
Iron is omitted due to the lack of usefulness of the items I was able to 
create with it(Paralyze/Stone/Poison Checks if your lucky).  Precis, 
Dias, Ernest and Opera will be added at a later time, I am not far 
enough in my games to be able to make their items yet.  Each character 
is able to make about 4 different items(I'm guessing four for each gem, 
but I haven't been able to get them all)from each gem.  Using the Super 
Specialty Orchestra increases the chance of a successful session.  The 
sayings are what the person says when they mess up.

6. SP Building Tips/Getting Metals
***********************************
The fastest way to get SP is to fight in the battle arena in Fun City,
in Nede. If you go through the solo duel battles, on the highest level,
the last creature you fight is one of those large green things that you
normally encounter in the tower of the wise men. It'll net you about
75,000 exp.

	If you go through the bully mode, on the highest level, you'll not 
only
level once (I leveled once every time through it, until I broke level 95
or so), but you'll also score 100 SP at the end for completing the bully
battle. Good way to earn double SP for a while.

	So what do you do to keep from getting slaughtered in those modes? 
Hope
you stole a lot while you were pickpocketing earlier .. there's an item
called the Battle Suit, it's 500ac armor, you steal it from one of the
people on board Ronixis' ship when you get beamed there. It makes Claude
(or whoever wears it - everyone can, sadly it isn't copyable)
practically invincible to physical attack. Creatures won't be able to
harm him until you're dealing with the wisemen, heraldry, or things in
the wisemen's tower.

In any case. Needing rare materials?

	Go to Giveaway. Hang around outside and fight the creatures on 
that
island. Sometimes they give nothing, but more often (and I mean -often-,
this won't even take five battles to find) they drop multiple pieces of
Meteorite and Orihalcum. It seems to be really popular.

	On that same island, you can make heavy use out of the Survival 
skill.
Walk into the wooded areas on that island and use the skill repeatedly.
I don't know what talents help the skill, everyone in my party seemed to
do it pretty well (when they were at the same level). From that island,
using survival, I've netted moonite, meteorite, damascus, orihalcum,
sage's stones (two back to back, once), and even one piece of mithril
(which, by far, seems the hardest stuff to acquire).
