III: NEW STUFF
===========


__________
BLACKSMITH
__________



if you find an item such as tear stone and you've got no idea what it is, 
it's probably a blacksmith item.The Blacksmith is a new feature for GS2. if 
you find an item called orihalcon, Darkmatter, tear stone ETC. Take it to the 
Blacksmith in Yallam. It's located North of Tundaria. you'll need to have the 
ship in order to reach it. The Blacksmith (named Sunshine, i'm not kidding!) 
will give you a random item after he's done. 



__________
SHIP   
__________

When you looked on the Back of the Box. you probably saw sheba, piers ETC. on 
a ship. I bet your Thinkin' "oh boy, i get a ship! i can go all over the map 
with this!" it's not as simple as it looks. theres alot of Barriers all over 
the Ocean. you don't pilot the ship until you have Piers in your Party. and 
later on you get Wings! But, your gonna have to read the Walkthrough for that. 

____________
LARGER WORLD
____________

Now with Nine Continents, the world you travel is HUGE! only thing is, 
you can't travel to the original land in GS. i Know how you feel.

____________
NEW PSYNERGY
____________
 
There's a whole bunch of new Psynergy, in Battle and out. 
from Pound to Blaze. A huge part of the great game play is owed to the new 
Psynergy.

__________
NEW DJINNI
__________

There's 44 new Djinn in The Lost Age. along with New Summons! collect 
all the djinn From GS and GS2, to go to the Last Sanctum to Face Dullhan: The 
ultimate Boss!
