The Clan Primer (クランレポート, Kuran Repōto?, lit. Clan Report) is a book in Final Fantasy XII used to keep track of information acquired during the game. The player receives it from Tomaj once they accept their first Hunt.
The Clan Primer has four subsections.
Keeps track of all the player's hunts both during and after each hunt has been completed.
Keeps track of all beasts that the player has killed. Each beast has a page of information about it, and, if the player slays enough of that certain beast, a secret page will be unlocked. This page may have information on the history of Ivalice, short stories, or tips on how to get a certain Bazaar Good or rare item.
A list of all the awards the player has earned during the game. Some rewards are easy to get, while some require several hours of dedication.
General hints and tips to help new players. It serves as in-game help and will explain several useful things, such as weapon properties, chains, etc.
By fulfilling certain requirements, the player's clan rank rises. Whenever it does, Montblanc will give the player a new reward, and new items will be available in the clan shop.
The ranks are:
- Moppet - Default rank, the player starts with this.
