1. Why do this? ~Intro-lite & carb free!~

     Hi everyone, and welcome to my item guide. In my first time playing 
through this wonderful game, (I’ve done about 3 runs) I came across items
that I had no idea what to do with. So, I forced myself to go look at the
FAQ’s, to find out what the hell was going on. And so, I finally got around
to creating a FAQ. 


2. Introduction
~Blah Blah Blah~

Ok then, now that we are entertained we can get into the actual FAQ. 
This is my first FAQ, so it isn’t going to be very pretty. 
Moving on, I am going to cover as best I can regular items, 
armor, weapons and special items. Compiling all this stuff is hard, 
and I’m sure I’ll miss some things. Scratch that, a LOT of things, 
so feel free to e-mail me and correct me, so I can praise your name 
and thank you. I don’t speak (or read for that matter) 
a lick of Japanese, so this guide is based on English Patch. There are some
minor spoilers, so ye be warned. Nuff small talk, lets get rocking!

9.Thanks, Lessons & contacts
I want to thank myself for having nothing to do for two days, 
My friend Will for letting me borrow DW1 & DW2, 
thusly getting me hooked. I want to thank Woodus, the creator
of the dragon's den, www.woodus.com, for showing me that yes,
there WAS a series after DW3. I want to thank the Ramones, for
giving me a something to listen to while writing this, greatest
hits live baby! Hey ho! Let's go!I want to thank dejap for translating 
this great game,so I didn't have to learn Japanese. Now only if they would
work on DQVI. ;) I learned that writing even a small Faq is tiring, and to 
never ever badmouth anyone who has written a faq sometime. I learned 
to save OFTEN, and not type during a electrical storm. 
Ok, to reach me,
my email is Schillace37@aol.com.

Peace out.
