------------------------------------------------------------------------------


System:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[THE SWORD GAUGE]
The Sword Gauge below the Life Energy Gauge shows attack 
strength. When it is low, the amount of damage you give an 
opponent will be slight even when you hit them, and when 
you hit opponents with the Sword Gauge at MAX, you can 
exact extensive damage with a single blow. The Sword Gauge 
falls when attacks hit or miss, and subsequently rises as time 
passes.

[THE RAGE GAUGE]
The Rage Gauge rises as you take damage from attacks. When 
it hits MAX, you can use Knocking-on-the-Sword moves and 
try to turn things around with a single blow.

[RAGE EXPLOSIONS]
Activating the "Rage Explosion" enables the use of invincible 
attacks that knock back enemy attacks even as you take damage 
and the Sword Gauge shoots up to MAX. This lets you use 
Knocking-on-the-Sword Methods of Mayhem to get out of 
tight spots.

[CONCENTRATION ONE]
"Concentration One" can be activated when the Life Energy 
Gauge flashes blue and lets you anticipate your opponent's 
moves to aim for a one-blow turnaround. The Rage Gauge 
disappears when you use either the "Rage Explosion" or "
Concentration One." The Rage Explosion can get out of a 
pinch or you can turn the tide of battle in your favor using 
Concentration One-either option greatly changes how you 
do battle.
