Information gathering stepsEdit

These locations are marked with glowing yellow stars for easy identification on the map screen.

It's not mandatory for the protagonist to actually complete these investigation events, but doing so will boost the "Trust" (信じる, shinjiru, throughout the game) ratings with the party.
