TheLifestream.Net is based around three objectives;
|• Acting as an ever-growing Final Fantasy VII database.|
|• Providing translations of Japanese-only guide books released by Square.|
|• Keeping the community alive via LP’s, Live Streaming, quizzes and other events about any media released by Square.|
All of the site’s three main missions are explained more in-detail below.
