The Phantasy Star: Official Production Compendium is the most well known book that exclusively covers the classic Phantasy Star series. It is generally regarded as one of the rarest and most valuable pieces of Phantasy Star merchandise. It collects artwork, character profiles, game development details, merchandise photographs, interviews, and other material detailing the general history of the series.

In addition to the standard information one might expect, like game plot summaries, Phantasy Star: Official Production Compendium also contains unique information that reveals details of the history of the series and characters not found in the games themselves. Where did techniques come from? Is magic inherited? Who started the Devastation War? What does AW stand for? These are examples of questions held by many Phantasy Star fans and answered only in this book.

I have scanned a few pages from the Compendium and made them available below as a preview for those interested in the book.
