- ...that the Retreat Psynergy, usually ineffective in towns, is functional in Shaman Village?

- ...that when you cast the Halt Psynergy on any townsperson, they'll say only the first word of their sentence when you talk to them and then return to normal?
- ...that the above Halt mechanic works on Djinn in The Lost Age the same way it works on people in both games - as in, when you use Halt on a Djinni and then interact with it, its face portrait will appear while it says "..." before returning to normal?
- ...that while the Revive Psynergy is available to a Venus Adept through the default Squire class series only from Gallant onward, it is available to a Venus Adept in any stage of the Swordsman class series?
- ...that all Reviving effects in the games, such as the Djinn and Psynergy, share their hit rates with their HP restoration rates (so that Quartz has a 50% chance to revive to 50% health, Spark and Balm have 60% chances to revive to 60% health, Dew an 80% chance to revive to 80% health, and Tinder a 100% chance to revive to 100% health)?
