    2.0 Introduction
    = = = = = = = = = = = =
    This FAQ will detail all of the permanently missable items, materia, mail, 
    Missions, Shops, etc.  That's the long and the short of it.  If you have any
    suggestions or corrections please contact me at scratchgamer@hotmail.com.
    I'm talking UNIQUE things here people, not the Cursed Ring at the beginning of
    the game, or the potion in mission x-x-x, but things that serve a singular,
    specific purpose that can be left behind permanently.  While many of these
    things can be obtained in a second playthrough, not everyone is into replaying
    even a short game just for a few items.
    One quick note before we get started, if you see (M) after the name of an item,
    it indicates that it's Materia.

      of his house to start the Wonders quest.  He'll tell you about the first
      wonder, at this point go inspect the water tower, you'll find the Phoenix
      Materia, and it's all yours.
    - Make sure to obtain this the first time you enter Nibelheim, certain events
      unfold that ensure you won't get another chance to obtain it in this game.
    - To clarify, Summon materia is NOT carried over in New Game+, you'll have to
      obtain this the hard (re: incredibly easy, just late game) way every time.
    DMW Limit Materia
    - Meteor Shots, Lucky Stars, Octaslash, Rush Assault, Air Strike, Healing Wave
      are all DMW materia that can only be obtained from ONE place in this game, and
      that is from the Research Dept. QMC+ Shop, which is unlocked when you find the
      address in a chest in Gongaga in Chapter 10.
    - These materia, like all non-summon materia, are carried over in New Game+.
    - To clarify, these materia simply increase the chance of seeing these Limits,
      they aren't necessary to use the Limits, nor are the necessary to see all the
      DMW scenes.

                               Octaslash materia especially is a tough run, because
                               it helps greatly to allow Octaslash to activate in
                               the Magic Urn fight in which you can get the Genji
    The Happy Turle          - Found in a chest in Mission 4-3-6, which if not

    3.5     Mail
    For Spoiler's sake I've not included the contents of the mail in this FAQ.  You
    can find the word-for-word entries of any and all mail in my Mail FAQ, which is
    also hosted on GameFAQs.
    3.5.1 - Friends (2)|
    **I'll give you a hint (Cissnei)**
    -Talk to Cissnei during the event in Junon.  After the boss fight with the Gen.
     Tank, there is a mini game in the next area.  After this, ride the gondola up
     one level (right near the entrance from the last area, can't miss it) to view a
     scene with Cissnei.  Shortly after you'll receive the mail from Cissnei "I'll
     give you a hint."
    -Receiving this mail is vital in allowing Zack to receive mail from the Zack
     Club (3 letters).
    **The last wonder (Wonder Hunter)**
    -Once you arrive in Nibelheim you'll find a small boy standing outside of the
     house closest to the town's entrance.  Speak with him to take upon the Wonders
     of Nibelheim sidequest.  
    -Instead of reposting information that I obtained elsewhere, I'll simply give
     you the link to the FAQ I used.  Absolute Steve does great work on his FAQs,
     and this is no exception.  Simply search for "Seven Wonders" and you'll be
     brought to the part of his FAQ concerning this sidequest.
    3.5.2 - Fan Club mail |

    miss any of the following, you'll want to join the four fan clubs as soon as
    possible.  Red Leather, the Study Group and Keepers of Honor can be joined as
    early as Chapter 3.  The Silver Elite (Sephiroth Fan Club) can't be joined
    until Chapter 6.  The Zack Fan Club can't be joined until Chapter 8, and only if
