This is a simple, convenient guide for Final Fantasy IV Advance for GBA. It 
contains the spells for white magic, black magic, call magic and ninjitsu. Most
magic spells are learned by leveling up. To acquire more summons however, other 
things are required (See "Learning Spells"). This is my first FAQ and I am 
hoping it will be a success. Enjoy!
