[2] Objectives and Evolutions of this faq
    ===========================================================================

Why this faq ?
Because a player using a French game will have a lot of difficulties to
translate most of in-game terms. In most case, the French term is not the
translation of the English one, this is the problem. Thanks to this faq, any
player will be able to use any in-depth faq with the French game.

What is coming next ?
I think I should add the guardian forces ability list.

What will never be done ?
Anything useless to use other faqs.
