References - Sources

For interested parties, we have provided a partial list of the sources used for the Reference Glossary here at Guardian Angels. I guarantee the accuracy of these entries based on my research to date, but there's always more to the story than what we have here. There are many different versions of the same tales, so I encourage you to do your own reading.

I have provided ISBNs and all other necessary information to find these books on your own. There are a few bits of information I don't have, and I'll try to fix that. All contributors are listed as well.

Online Sources

Behind the Name
The title is self-explanatory.

Encyclopedia Mythica
Rather than describe this site to you, why not just go there? They have articles on hundreds of terms and names, for various mythologies and worlds of literature. It's well worth your time - I'm sorry I didn't find it sooner, rather than at the end of my recent binge of research. ^^

This is the site that finally told me what, exactly, 'terrane' is. I explored the rest briefly, but couldn't find a title. Blame my lazy nature.

This is probably the best known text in Xenogears fandom. ^^ It's the combination information/art book that covers everything in the game and beyond. It is completely in Japanese, so if you aren't at least a little educated in the use of Japanese, don't buy it for the information - buy it for the artwork. ^.^
