Part 82: AN's Bonus Update #5--He Talks About Items and Accessories!2 votes is enough, I'm posting early. Plus, I've been reading a great Lone Wolf thread which updated more than once daily. http://forums.somethingawful.com/sh...40&pagenumber=1 Check it out if you enjoy a fun look into some classic gamebooks and the personalities of goons.
Accessories! I list name, special effects, and where it's most easily found.
Headband (Bandana) Gives infinite ammo... wait, wrong Japanese story. The Number 1 of these makes you an invincible warrior, the Number Two makes everyone want to kill you. Wait, wrong story again. Actually it just grants Speed +1. Chrono starts with one.
Ribbon Grants complete status immunity... ok, enough wrong story jokes. Grants Accuracy +2. Marle starts with one and it is best used by her or Lucca.
Power Glove Grants Strength +2. Found in Truce Canyon, 600 AD.
Guardian Bangle (Defender) Grants Stamina +2. Robo starts with this, also found in Cathedral.
Magic Scarf Grants Magic +2. Found in Heckran Cave, Magus's Castle, and the Cursed Woods.

Silver Stud Halves MP costs. Find in Denadoro Mountains.
Golden Stud (Gold Stud) Cuts MP costs by 75%. Very useful for magicians. Find behind Trann Dome Sealed Door. You can also charm them from Flyclops in the Black Omen.
Sight Scope Reveals enemy HP. Lucca wears this by default and likely invented it.

White Gemstone (White Rock) Enables use of Poyozo Dance Triple Tech by Team Girl Power. Kill the Terra Mutant.
Golden Gemstone (Gold Rock) Enables use of Master Mune Triple Tech by Frog, Marle, and Robo. Only Frog can wear it, and you need the upgraded Masamune along with Frog & Marle's ultimate Techs. Visit the Denadoro Mountains with Frog in the lead once you have all this and he will catch the rock a Free Lancer throws at you. It may take multiple tries (it didn't for me, but did for some). That's it.
Hero's Badge (Hero Medal) Masamune critical % increased, Frog only. Getting this is a Plot Point.
