Section 1:The Characters

  Bob the Hamster:Main character of the game, and a self-professed 
Hamster Ninja.  
  He has many useful techniques, but all but the first two must be aquired in
Book form.  A solid choice for a lead character, and not only that, he's the
ONLY choice for a lead character.

  James:The first supplementary character of the game, you get him near 
the beginning of the game.  A bubble-mage by trade, he later leaves the party
to become king of Broaste's kingdom.  He gets a great range of magic attacks,
but is lacking in physical strength.  He attacks primarily with Spam 
cans(SPAM and Smokey SPAM).  I definitely missed him when he became k*ng.
  
  Dusty:The World-Famous-Weiner-Dog-in-trousers is a good character, even
if you have to fight a boss to get him.  He is only around for a small amount
of the game however-just past after you beat Br**ste for the second time.  He
has the "Refresh" and "Revenge" attacks, both of which are quite handy.  His
only weapon is the Bone, found in a cell right next to him.  Dusty is 
definitely worth beating a boss for!
  Dusty has two special attacks:Refresh and Revenge.  Revenge does the same
amount of damage as the last attack done to Dusty, and Refresh does heals
more HP the lower Dusty's HP gets.
  
  Hasim:With you for an entire ONE BATTLE.  He has a nasty "Opugn" 
attack, where he takes 20-30 damage, and does 70-80!  However, lack of 
techniques make him useful only against bosses...oh yeah.  Never mind.
