All questions about the game may be sent to me at penguin_faqs@yahoo.com . 
Questions or additions sent to the wrong address might be lost or deleted.  
So please choose your destination wisely. I do respond to all emails, so 
please be patient.  If you sent it to the right place, you'll get a reply.  
Also, please read my guide before asking any questions. Only questions and 
tips not already in my guide will be posted. All game related emails sent to 
another of my email addresses will be ignored.

I do enjoy receiving instant messages with questions and praise about my 
guides.  If you would like to contact me, my AIM screen name is 
JuanDixonFor3.  If I do not respond immediately, this probably means I am 
busy.  I am always talking with my girl and with friends, so sometimes I 
don't get to instant messages from people I do not know right away.  Be nice 
and I will talk to you.  But if you are rude and abusive either because I 
don't respond quickly enough or about my guide, I will probably block you.  
All emails sent to the correct destination will be answered though.

Thanks!

Hey everyone, and welcome to my latest FAQ, this time for the wonderful new 
PS2 RPG Tales of the Abyss. After a disappointing last entry into the series 
with the battle system challenged Tales of Legendia, Namco has really 
rebounded this time with a classic game in the vein of Tales of Eternia and 
Tales of Symphonia. Combining fast paced battles with a decent storyline and 
characters, this is the best game in the series since Symphonia, as well as 
being one of the best RPGs on the console, period.

I am doing this FAQ from scratch, meaning no outside help whatsoever besides 
reader tips. This means I am accepting more reader tips than ever, as I SUCK 
at finding everything in a game, lol. I went through the game at a decent 
speed and opened up a second file so I could write a decent walkthrough and 
get all the statistics for weapons, items, etc, but I know this is not 
perfect. So, if you have any tips or suggestions or additions, feel free to 
email me!

Enjoy the FAQ!

This game is so awesome.. I really hope this walkthrough helps you through 
the game.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
INTRODUCTION -> BATICUL
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The game starts off with the main character, Luke, in his bedroom. Note you 
can't rename him, because of the fact the main characters voice his name 
constantly. This is why Tidus was never referred to as Tidus in FFX or FF X-
2, by the way. ("He" is coming to save us!) Anyways, watch the scene and then 
leave the room. I hope this game doesn't turn out to be another one of those 
games where the main character had headaches and hears voices all game...

Once you're out, you'll be in the main part of the castle. Head into the 
eastern room and then talk to the soldier, who will tell you that you have 
some sort of visitor. There will be a skit, which you can initiate by hitting 
select. These piss people off because they are not voiced, but neither were 
the ones in Symphonia if I am not mistaken.

Go back to the bedroom now, and after a scene, leave the room again and head 
to the left side of the court yard now. Head through the door, then go up 
into the next room for an Apple Gel before going downwards towards the 
audience room. There will be some scenes involving Luke's father's 
involvement in an upcoming potential war. Leave the audience room to the 
right, then head north to the next room for a couple more items. Now, head to 
the middle of the castle again for a scene, where Luke gets to learn some 
basic battling techniques with his homeboy, Master Van.

Suddenly, some bitch breaks up the scene, trying to kill Van, and you're left 
in the middle of nowhere with her.

This is just a section where I post some extra guides if you need help in any 
specific area.

<--------------------------------------------------------------------------->
< 5.1 > SYNOPSIS GUIDE
<--------------------------------------------------------------------------->

The game has an in-game diary called a synopsis, which keeps track of the 
followings throughout the game. I am reposting that here for those who aren't 
going to be playing through the game, or those who just want to have it 
documented.

"It Started With A Song"
------------------------------
Remday, Rem - Decan 23, ND2018
------------------------------
Looks like it's going to be another boring day.

Not one thing has gone right over the seven years since my kidnapping. I lose 
my memory... They keep me confined here... I keep getting headaches and 
hearing things all the time...

But today, Master Van came to the mansion, so maybe it won't be boring after 
all! Time to head over to the drawing room to see him!

I heard some really depressing news in the drawing room... Master Van won't 
be able to come and train me for a while. Apparently this "Fon Master Ion" or 
somebody from the Order of Lorelei disappeared, so he has to go help in the 
search. This really makes me mad!

Since he has to go away, he said he'd give me some training today in the 
courtyard. 

But just as I was practicing with Master Van, I heard a strange song (A 
"fonic hymn" he called it... what's that?). It made me sleepy, and then this 
weird girl came in and attacked Van.

I tried to stop her, but all of a sudden some incredible power appeared 
between us, and we were thrown into a valley neither of us were familiar 
with.

CONTACT INFORMATION
--------------------
You can check out all of my other guides on GameFAQs, which will hopefully 
include a very sexy Tales of Symphonia guide soon. I can't wait to finish 
that thing. I am most proud of this guide and Legend of Legaia, but I did 
guides for a lot of Final Fantasies, as well as some random Castlevania and 
wrestling games, and both Tales of Destiny games. Check them out!

In addition on my quest to write for all the Final Fantasy games, I will try 
to finish my NCAA Football 2007 and FF7 guides, as well as some random NES 
games (Predator, NOES, Jeopardy Jr., and Puss and Boots, anyone?) and guides 
for the other 2 Castlevania games that employ the new style. Oh, and I might 
do a Wild Arms 3 guide. And I still have to finish my ToS and FF3 guides..

And there's always Final Fantasy 12 and Tales of the Tempest to look forward 
to...

I appreciate any information you can contribute, especially to game basics, 
and team ratings. Also, feel free to email any questions that would be good 
for a FAQ section,  as I plan to add one to a future update.

Any errors and omissions that you may see can be corrected if you inform me 
of them. I'll also credit you, if your error or omission is actually correct 
and  worth an update for me to fix. I am somewhat busy, you know.

That's about it. If anyone would like me to add anything, you can always 
email me. 

AIM: JuanDixonFor3
MSN: mcfa4834@bellsouth.net
YIM: nicklacheysnightmare

If you contact me on one of the instant messengers, and I do not respond, it
probably means I am busy. I am always talking with my girl, and friends, so
sometimes I just ignore some instant messages from people I do not know. Be
nice, and I will talk to you, just don't come out and ask the question and be
all rude if I do not respond in five seconds, otherwise I probably will just
block you. I will answer all e-mails about the game, however.

You can contact me by emailing me at penguin_faqs@yahoo.com

One last note: Only email me about the game at penguin_faqs@yahoo.com, all 
emails about Just Breed sent to my other e-mail addresses will be deleted 
and/or ignored. Thanks to all those that have emailed me so far, I appreciate 
it!

1. Check my email backlog. If it's filled up, you may have to wait a while 
before you get a response.

2. I check my email once in a while. Please wait for a response, because I 
will respond to all emails.

3. Please read my guide before asking questions, that's why I have a FAQ 
section.

4. I will only post your question/tip in my guide if it is good, and has not 
been answered in this guide.

Also, I have AIM and Yahoo. My AIM name is JuanDixonFor3, but PLEASE do not 
harass me with annoying questions or I'll block you. I only wish to chat with 
people.

find some stuff during the game.

< 7.2 > REVISION HISTORY
<--------------------------------------------------------------------------->

v0.01 - October 13, 2006 - 35.1 KB - I started the FAQ and finally got some 
stuff done. The format is done, the lists have all been started, the synopsis 
guide has been started, and I even got the walkthrough started a little bit 
too, although only though Baticul at the beginning. =O Current game progress 
has me somewhere in Choral Castle.


<--------------------------------------------------------------------------->
< 7.3 > FUTURE UPDATES
<--------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Next update, I hope to have walkthrough done through Choral Castle, and the 
game basics to be done. Synopsis should be updated, too.

<--------------------------------------------------------------------------->
< 7.4 > GOODBYE!
<--------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Thanks for reading my FAQ for this incredible game! This game was a lot of 
fun, and writing this FAQ was difficult, but I am glad to have pulled it off, 
and I hope it helped you!

Til next time,
Psycho Penguin
