STAR OCEAN THE DIVINE FORCE – General Tips

This is a random assortment of notes I took while playing the game, a majority of which either translated off of a Japanese site or scrambled together from multiple forums. As such, I have found errors while completing this list and am unsure if there are yet more here.

Publishing

This list is for authoring books that can be published for mountains of fol at Acendros’ item shop; you would turn it in as a quest item. In order to author a book it needs to be created by the character associated. Meaning you will always get the same three books from Raymond, and will never get one of Laeticia’s books from Raymond. The reason some of these have materials next to them and others don’t is that I noticed the wiki I got this list from was often wrong, so I don’t trust the material listings at all. Any books with listed materials are ones I personally found.The “3*” or “4*” etc next to the books are their rarity, which determines how much you get in royalties.
