-More clarification about finding the dead wood to blow the canal.
-Sorry, I really cannot add much more about the actual history of each character
since this game doesn't focus highly on the technical aspects on each character
(plus the history in the game isn't entirely accurate, and it's too complicated
to do such a thing.  Thanks anyway!)

-Fixed a little discrepency with losing Xu Zhe, thanks to
microwavekitten@hotmail.com for making it clear that my FAQ apparently sucks
that much that this person must make it a point to call me a "rookie" because I
overlooked an error I made 4 years ago.
=)
-Made another correction on Chi Tu Ma, thanks to everyone that e-mailed me about
this too.
-Oh heck, I made a ton of corrections.  Actually went through my e-mails and
made all the corrections (which there wen't much of left) and additions.  I'm
probably now done with this FAQ.

1. What's the point of this FAQ?
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Basically, I played this game many many years ago when popular game carts were
bigger than you face, remember those good ol' days?  Well anyway, I found
this game many years later, but got stuck at one point and didn't find a
good FAQ at the time (this was a long time ago on GameFAQs), so I figured,
why not?

This walkthrough is NOT historically detailed (I'm not a complete history
buff like, say my roommate who's descendant happens to be Liu Bei, go figure),
but there are some good FAQs on GameFAQs if you want more detail about generals,
the history, etc.
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
2. What the heck is "Destiny of an Emperor?"
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
In Chinese history, there's a period of dynasties that constantly changed
with rulers and periods of time.  During a major popular time period, known
as the "Han" dynasty, China was divided into three major regions: Wei, Wu,
and Shu.  Basically, there were three major warlords fighting to conquer
all three regions: Liu Bei, Sun Ce, and Cao Cao.  This is where the game
takes place.

In light of the few history games out there, Capcom decided to make a game
about this time period.  Unlike another game of the same time period made
by Koei, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, this is more of an NES-style
Role-Playing game.  Except instead of having HP, you have soldiers, and
you "magic" is "tactics" (which are in Chinese, but you can get the gist of
them after awhile).

Unfortunately, this is a rare gem; there are no other RPGs on this time
period other than DoaE 2, which was only released in Japan and DoaE on
Gameboy.

If you want to play more games on this time period, you can check out the
currently on going game series Romance of the Three Kingdoms (which is
currently on NES, Genesis, SNES, PlayStation, and slated to be on PS2), and
Dynasty Warriors (a fighting game by Koei on PSX; a second one is planned
for PS2).
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
3. What do I need to know about this game for NES?
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Nothing really.  Just don't get discouraged if you can't understand the
names of the tactics (trust me.  If you want difficulty in a magic-type
system, try Phantasy Star).  Parts of each tactic will be reused, so you'll
know what kind of tactic you've learned (i.e. Lian Huo, Huo Ren).

I will list each tactic and level they're earned later in this FAQ.

This is a great game for beginners and for those who want to pass time.  The
music is excellent and the story's interesting.  One of my personal favorite
RPGs of all time




     3a. Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who is Chi Tu Ma?
A: IIRC, in Chinese history, it was nicknamed "Red Hare."  It was known best in
Guan Yu's posession.  According to an e-mail I received:
>It actually was Lu Bu's but Guan Yu captured it at the battle of Xia Pi and it
becamehis.
(Thanks to jaizyn for the e-mail!)

Q: What's the easiest way to open the jail cell door?
A: According to Captain Mayhem (and many others that have e-mailed me about
this):
>the way the game is set up, if it makes more that one noise when you run into
the door it will never open. instead stand right infront of the door and quickly
press up about 6 times so that it makes one noise each time. no running
involved.

Another e-mail I received says:
>First, put huang zhong in the lead of your party, then hold against the gate
and keep pressing the 'B' button, the gate will open pretty quickly!!
(from sir Skitsomunkey)

Q: I went through your FAQ and *so and so item* or *so and so person* wasn't
there or said something else as if I did the quest already, etc.
A: Unfortunately, this game suffers from flag errors on very rare occasions.  I
can only suggest that either refer to a save, back it up (COPY HISTORY BOOK),
and start over.  There's really not much you can do when this happens.

Q: Do you have any codes/cheats?
A: No, and I will not provide any.

Q: Your FAQ sucks.  I can write a better one.
A: Great.  Go ahead and write a better one.  By all means.

Q: How the #$^#&*@ do I get rid of the Intro Letr???
A: According to Justin Gorres:
>Just go to the castle where you fight Ji Ling and Zhang Xun and 1 Rebel Force.
Go north of that castle BUT don't cross that bridge, instead, go right into the
opening.  follow the path and you should see a house, go in it and there will
be Shui Jing. 

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
4. Do I need to purchase anything else for the game?
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Just a NES console, a controller, a TV to play it on, and some patience.

GameGenies take the fun out of RPGs...
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
5. Can you give me some tips/secrets?  I can't get through the game easily!
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
The first thing I must reiterate continually is that if you are NOT familiar
with the tactics, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THIS FAQ HANDY!  Because some tactics
in your arsenal are tremendously useful, and some general that you fight
against will know some VERY dangerous tactics that you must defend against.
Look at the bottom of the FAQ for the Tactics section.
Just don't say I didn't warn you when generals start using An Sha against you.


Level 51 (Yes, I'm the one who posted this in GameSages too, so no copyright
infringements!  Heh.  Although I may have submitted Xu Zhou instead of Ji Zhou,
oops)  Many people see the old man in the outskirts Ji Zhou as someone who can
make an easy level up.  However, if you want to maximize the size of your
armies (applicable to the generals who can increase armies only, like
Zhang Bao, Guan Xing, Zhu Ge Liang, Zhao Yun, Huang Zhong, Ma Chao, etc.),
level them all up to level 50 first, then go to the old man.  He'll raise you
to level 51.  However, do NOT go to him before you get to level 50, otherwise
it won't work.  To get to the old man, go to Ji Zhou, and take one step outside
the east exit (don't leave Ji Zhou), then go straight north until you see a
white house.  Enter and talk to the old man.


Chi Tu Ma
The steps that Lu Bu refers to so you can find Chi Tu Ma is from Qing Zhou.
However, the only advantage to having Chi Tu Ma is that the general that has
him goes and strikes first, but that's it.  You cannot get rid of Chi Tu Ma, so
make sure you can spare an extra slot in you inventory.  When I can remember
from where to make the steps, I'll put it here.  BTW-from what I hear, Chi Tu Ma
was not Lu Bu's horse, but actually was Guan Yu's (and was quite famous). You
can him literally like he said, 1 yard (step) south and 8 yards (steps) west of
Fan Shui Guan fortress (the fortress southmost from Xu Zhou).  Note that you
have to go to the outer gate of Fan Shui Quan, then the first step south counts
as the 1 yard south step.  When you go 8 yards west, just go around the rock
(but the rock still counts as a yard).  If someone knows any other use for Chi
Tu Ma (maybe to Lu Bu?), please e-mail me.


        5a. Known bugs

To my knowledge, there really aren't many bugs.  Just mistakes in texts...

The first thing I must reiterate continually is that if you are NOT familiar

Otherwise, first things first:  How stats affect your general/party.

Strength (STR)-Basically, how much damage you can inflict, even when your
army is low.  The A.P. also affects how much damage you can do.  Also, if
your STR is high, and you have a very large army, you can do more damage.
But if you have low A.P. or a very low army, STR means jack.  Lu Bu will
do the most damage even with a low amount of armies, as his STR is 255.

Intelligence (INT)-Usually, high INT generals can use tactics, the higher
the INT, the more likely they are more suitable for tacticians rather than
a fighting general (there are many exceptions of course).  Also, the higher
the INT, the more tactics they can learn.  Another advantage to having high
INT is that not only will you have a higher success rate of performing tactics,
you can also have a better chance of defending against lower INT generals who
use attacking tactics.  Finally, the more INT your tactician has, the more
T.P. you will have at your disposal.  Zhu Ge Liang can utilize the most T.P.
out of your maximum since he has 255 INT.

A.P.-I'm thinking this means Attack Power.  This is reflected upon your weapon.
The better the weapon, the higher the A.P.  This wil affect how much damage you
will do.  But A.P. is nothing without armies or strength.

A.C.-I don't know that A.C. means, but it's basically your armor.  The better
your armor, the higher your A.C. rate is and defense rating.
(Addenum - I was informed this means "Armor Class", thanks to Battlemage_Li for
the e-mail!)

SOLDIER-Your army, your life source.  WIthout 'em, you can't attack.  Think of
it as your "HP."  Certain generals (namely the Tigers and very few others) will
grow in army size as your level up.  Also, army size can determine the strength
of attacks.  If an army way outnumbers their opponent, the likelyhood of
repelled attacks are greater.


Now, the fun part, THE WALKTHROUGH!
Note: This part is long.

*SPOILER ALERT*
THIS CONTAINS LOTS OF SPOILERS!!!  SKIP ALL THE WAY DOWN IF YOU DON'T WANT TO
RUIN THE GAME!

I split the game up into different parts, and labeled them accordingly.
Sorry if I sound a bit corny ^_^

Part 3-The ambition of the Yuan brothers
Part 4-The Five Tigers
Part 5-A new rebellion

Part 8-Rise and fall of Si Ma Yi


All quotes are untouched.  If there are errors, that how it is in the game.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Part 1-The Yellow Scarves (aka the Yellow Turbins)

A bandit group known as the Yellow Scarves has taken over a large portion
of Wei, and is terrorizing the people.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
You start off in a nice little town.  Liu Bei's mother(?) sends him off to
help the current ruler, Tao Qian defeat the Yellow Scarves.  The first castle
to the west you'll run into is Xu Zhou.

Here, the townsfolk will talk about the Yellow Scarves and give you some
beginner's tips.  Tao Qian will ask you to take out the Yellow Scarves, and
when he does, a nice new kingdom will be waiting for Liu Bei.

From here, you can go North to Qing Zhou to fight Zhang Liang, west to Mt. Da
Xing to fight Zhang Bao/Cheng Yuan Zhi, or south to Tie Men Xia and fight
Zhang Jao.

In this case, you should go north.

When you first enter the town, a man will be standing there, Ma Yuan Yi, who
will attack you right away if you talk to him.  If you're too weak, avoid him
until later.

Scarves, you will find you impertence very costly.  Go ahead!  Attack!"

south of where you are.

was a sniveling fool.  At my hand, you will die!"

Tie Men Xia also isn't anything special (Is that Dong Zhou???).  The people
will talk about the Yellow Scarves retreating to Qing Zhou, and another will
tell you about capturing Han Zhong to find an easier way to attack Qing Zhou.
If you choose to capture Han Zhong and take the back door route, you must find
him in a random battle.  Make sure you're prepared to have a steed or money
in case he asks.

Here you have two alternatives: You can take Han Zhong and go the back door
route to fight the Zhang brothers easier, or take the front door and worry
about two extra generals.  Either way, go the back route, because in the
path to the castle, there's an axe.  Unless you don't need it, or if you're
really strong, go the front door; you'll get more experience.  Just remember:
Han Zhong MUST BE THE LEADER in order to open the bridge in the back door
path.

Back door:
<<<Zhang Jao>>>
<<<Zhang Bao>>>
<<<Zhang Liang>>>

Front door:
<<<Zhang Jao>>>
<<<Zhang Bao>>>
<<<Zhang Liang>>>
<<<Zheng Mao>>>
<<<Cheng Yuan Zhi>>>

Once this is all done, peace will be restored, and Liu Bei will become ruler
of the Wei region.  He will leave your party and have his son Liu Feng join
you.  From here, go south of Tie Men Xia, through another fortress.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Part 2-Betrayal, Dong Zhuo's tyranny

Lu Bu, a man of great strength who knows no loyalty, and Dong Zhuo, a
powerful tyrannical ruler teamed up to make an unbeatable combination.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The next place you'll be going is Fan Shui Guan.  There you'll meet Sun Ce,
you will tell you he tried attacking Dong Zhou, but was betrayed by Yuan
Shu and he leaves.  You will fight Hua Xiong next.

Hua Xiong is a pretty big major leaguer.  But tactics work well against him.
In Fan Shui Guan, another fortress.  Yang Jin will ask to join you, and you'll
find an axe.  The people will talk of Yuan Shu's betrayal and Lu Bu at Hu Lao
Guan, your next destination.

After Fan Shui Guan, keep going, and if you go north in a mountain path,
you'll find a cave.  Go in and get all the nice goodies from there.  You'll
need it if you don't want to be fighting Lu Bu all your life.

=-=Cave 1=-=

As you exit the cave another general, Guan Ping will ask to join you (I would
take him, 200 STR).  From there, proceed west to Hu Lao Guan.

Lu Bu, by the way, is the strongest in the game, beating Zhang Fei by 5 points.
But, like Zhang Fei, isn't the brightest.  He can fall into tactics
pretty easily, but don't take him for granted.  His hits take off a lot, even
when he's weak.  Li Ru is opposite, if not worse.  He has the strength of
a grandma, yet has a few tactics that, unless you really leveled up, you have
never seen yet.

At Hu Lao Guan, you'll meet Cao Cao, who'll go meet Yuan Shu and Yuan Shao
at Luo Yang.  The other people talk of Lu Bu's strength and how you can have
Lu Bu join your side; Wang Yun, an old man in a tent will tell you where you
can get the Gemsword.  Huo Hu will ask to join you as well.  Your next target
is Luo Yang, where Dong Zhou has taken over.  You need to pass two gates to
get to Luo Yang.

invincible and leaves.  Dong Zhuo is waiting at the inner castle gate.

think you could just march in and occupy Luo Yang.  What lunacy."

When you reach Luo Yang, you'll find it burnt down, the only thing left
standing are the people, a house, and an inn.  Wang Gui will ask to join you,
and you'll find Yuan Shao, who will tell you that he too was defeated by Dong
Zhou and must go back to Bo Hai to regroup.  Go north in town to the only
standing house.  Inside, in the upper right corner, one of the tiles is red.
Remember that Gold Key you found in the cave (if not, go back and get it)?
Stand on top of the block, use the key, and voila, the gemsword.  You can't
equip it, but it'll come in handy, so make sure one of your attacking
generals has it with him.  Continue out to the next castle to meet with Lu Bu
again.  But this time, it'll be a bit different.

Although you still want to be careful of Lu Bu, here's where you can get him
to join your side.  All you have to do is show him the Gemsword, and 70%
of the time he'll ask you to join you.  Sometimes he'll just say "What's that?"
Also be warned: if you refuse to give him the Gemsword or refuse him to join
you, he'll say "I guess kindness is too overrated.  Take this!" and he'll
attack, most likely will be a heavy attack (which isn't good), so decide whether
or not you want him beforehand.  Keep in mind that you cannot lose the Gemsword
unless you give it to Lu Bu.

Bo Hai seized the Imperial Seal and threatens the peace in Wu.

Basically, Chang An's an oasis.  Soldiers here are in paradise over the great
enviornment, food, and women.  And the women?  Well, doesn't look like they
appreciate it much.  Other people will talk about Yuan Shu's ursurption of
emperor.  Go ahead and invite Liu Bei over (through the records keeper).
He'll ask you to rest, but early in the morning, you're waken up by Liu Bei.
Cao Cao's messenger tells you that Yuan Shu has illegitimately taken over and
is ruling in Nan Yang, and someone must stop him.  Guess who here at the
emperor's disposal to save China?

From Chang An, go straight south, and you'll run into a bar (a pub mind you).
Talk to the first man there, Zhao Yun, and he'll ask if he can join you.  But
first he has to fulfill an obligation before he joins you...

After the bar, go follow the mountains up and right and you'll see a little
path to the forest.  Go south and attack Yuan castle.

If Zhang Fei is dead, Yuan Shu will flee to Bo Hai, otherwise...

*But Yuan Shu was surrounded by Zhang Fei*
"You dare defy me?  I am the emperor.  Let me go."

Yuan Shu will repeat this three times, if you say no all three times, you
will behead him.  If you let him go, he will flee to Yuan Shao in Bo Hai.

Either way, it's not over yet...
DO NOT PROCEED PAST THE BRIDGE AFTER NAN YANG YET!
You will see why; go to the inn and rest first and make sure you de-equip
Lu Bu.

Some of the people here are thankful that you freed the castle, but most of
them are worried that Yuan Shao will come after Liu Bei.  By the way, whether
or not Yuan Shu is running free or not doesn't matter.  The people and Liu Bei
will still say the same thing (assume he's dead).  Also, in the northeast side
of town, a man will offer to sell you a key for 4000 gold.  It's steep, I know
but buy it; you'll need it later.

Thanks to everyone for pointing this item out!
After you talk to that man, go straight up, and then go straight left in the
little inlet (there will be a tree above you, and water under you).  Hit "Check"
and you'll find a Trident, which is great since it doubles the power of your
spear (100 AP).

As you exit the building, go north.  As you're about to cross the bridge, Yuan
Shao will be there to meet you.

~~~
"I've been waiting for you.  I'm Yuan Shao, the lord of Bo Hai Castle.  I'll
kill you and redeem my brother's glory.  Prepare to die!"
(Yes, Yuan Shao will still say the same thing if Yuan Shu is alive)

You will not be able to fight them for now (if you didn't use any cheats or
level up massively, they should REALLY be outnumbering you).  They'll attack
you, and then leave.

~~~
"Go home, Liu Bei.  You're obviously no threat to me."

Lu Bu betrayed you too!  Where'd he get the extra soldiers???

You now have a choice-go east after Yuan Shao, or west after the Five Tigers.
However, going west will lead you to MUCH stronger enemies, so be very careful.
Going east will continue the storyline so...

If you go north from Nan Yang then west, you'll notice a cave.  You should go
there later to save time.  Proceed east.  (Also if you've noticed, go straight
north and you'll see a long wall that runs along the northern border.  I'll
give you one guess what that is, hint:it's a REALLY long wall... ^_^ and no,
it has nothing to do with the game; just a decoration.)

You'll soon run into Bo Hai.

At first, you cannot go to to the second part of town, or past Bo Hai for
that matter because some woman is blocking the way calling for Xu Zhe.
Go into the first house in the castle, to the door on the left.  Talk
to Shui Jing, and tell him you've been to the cave (even though you haven't
gone there yet).  He'll give you gun powder, it's use will come in handy.
Now exit Bo Hai, and go straight west until you hit the cave; go in.


=-=Cave 4=-=
-EMPTY-

Inside this cave, if you stay on the upper path, along the pond is a general.
Talk to him, and he'll try to attack you, but when he realizes who you are,
he asks to join you.  At this point, he's a very good general.  When you
reach the roadblock, use the gun powder, and talk to the man sitting there.
He will introduce himself as Xu Zhe (aka Dan Fu) and will ask to join you.

From there, go back to Bo Hai, and talk to the woman (who happens to be his
wife).  She'll move out of the way.  Go  straight through town to go past
Bo Hai (of course, get some new weapons/armor first).  The townsfolk will
talk of Xu Zhe, aka Dan Fu, and will warn you to beware of Yan Liang and
Wen Hun.  Others will tell you Yuan Shao went east to Ji Zhou.

Go out and go straight west, the go south around the mountains, you'll
see a gate.  Defeat it (with caution).

Note: if you go straight west, you'll run into a castle.  Inside, Zhao
Yun will be blocking the way, so you can't attack the castle and advance.
You have to get the gate first.

After you defeat them, go in.  There's nothing there but a girl.  Remember
that overpriced silver key you bought?  Use it at the door of the gate that
the girl's being held.  She'll give you the Zhou Letr to give to Zhao Yun.

Now go straight east, the north after the mountains, cross the bridge to
the next castle.  You'll see Zhao Yun blocking the path to the castle.
Use the Zhou Letr on him, and he'll be happy his sister's safe.  You find
that his sister was used as bait to make Zhao Yun join Yuan Shao's side.
He then asks to join your army.  Basically, if you refuse, he will still
sit there and block your path, so you don't have much of a choice.  Now
you have three Tigers!

Advance to the inner castle of Guang Zong.

Part 4-The Five Tigers

The five most powerful group of warlords in China are scattered, and they
must gather to destroy anything or anyone that threatens China.

You will find that the outside music has changed (FINALLY) to something,
IMHO better.  You already have three of the five tigers, Zhang Fei, Guan Yu,
and Zhao Yun.  Time to find the other two...


Go west of Nan Yang, and go down the bridge to the house.  A man will
tell where to go from there (basically, follow the path to each house, and
talk to the man there.  You will also run into Zhu Ge Liang's house.
Remember where his house is, it'll be important later.  The first castle you

With Han Xuan gone, you took over one of China's major capitals, besides
Luo Yang, and a few others.  Wei Yan and Huang Zhong will the first to
greet you in the castle, and will ask to join you (let them join!).  The
people will talk of not trusting the ruler of Gui Yang castle.  You find
yet another owner with a tiger named Wang (I thought I saw that tiger in
Wu Ling!).  Go straight south to Gui Yang.


=-=Gui Yang=-=
This castle is unusual.  There is no one guarding the castle, so you
can walk right in.  But when you walk in, something is weird.  Everyone
is blocking the entrances to the buildings, and say the same thing:

"My lord has sent me to welcome you with open arms to his humble castle.
Our simple accommodations will surely be inadequate but we are a modest
folk."

Sounds suspicious?  Keep going to the palace.  Everyone there except one
man and the king will say the same thing.  Talk to the king, he will
offer you a place to stay.  You can say yes or no.  If you say yes, the
screen will darken, you will hear some attack noises and you will realize
that you fell into a trap, with about 75% of your troops missing.  If
you say no to his offer, he will insist. If you keep saying no, he will
attack anyway (but you will have all of your troops intact).  What should
YOU do?  ^_^ Unless you want a challenge, say no.

After you defeat Zhao Fan, he will give up the castle.  Everyone will talk
normal as well.  The people will talk of Jing Zhou country, and tell you
to beware of Xing Dao Rong in Ling Ling.

(thanks to microwavekitten@hotmail.com (and especially for calling me a
"rookie" because I misplaced this section in the FAQ!  I guess incompetance
and human error automatically fails me as a FAQ writer!)  =)

Invite Liu Bei over.  Liu Bei will give you a letter to give to Xu Zhe.
If he's not in your party, you have to go get him.  He will find that
his mother is ill and leaves your party.  Leave the castle, and Xu Zhe
will tell you to find a house south of the cave where you found him and
find Fu Long, aka Zhu Ge Liang.

Here's where you can now get Zhu Ge Liang, but for now, I suggest getting
a replacement tactician.  Beef up your guys, and head to Ling Ling.


Go south and west to continue.
You can go north around the mountains, or south under and take the hills.
South will give you a higher encounter rate, and north isn't that much
longer anyway.  Go west until you hit the gate of Ling Ling.

People here are grateful that you freed Jing Zhou.  You can find a sword in
a house in the outskirts of town.  When you first enter, follow along the
outside of the wall to the left, and you'll see a house.  Go in and talk to
the man, he'll tell you to search around him.  Do so, and you'll find a
sword.  There is one soldier in the town; if you talk to him, he'll say
that Pang Tong is out with his soldiers.  BE CAREFUL when you talk to him!
Pang Tong is strong, and if you don't want to fight him, don't talk to the
man.  If you do, talk to him, go outside, and start walking back towards
Gui Yang (or anywhere on the Jing Zhou region.  One of the next fights
is against Pang Tong.  He's weak defensively, but if he pulls out Ji Mian,
you're in trouble.  Tactics will almost never work on him and you won't be
able to fight until it wears off.

Zhu Ge Liang (if you don't have him already).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
4a. Zhu Ge Liang subquest (you cannot continue on to the Shu region unless
you have him)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is fun.  First go find his house.  Outside Nan Yang, go west, then go
south past the bridge.  Go to the house and talk to the man there, he'll
direct you where to go.  Continue south along the path, and you'll reach
another house.  Continue down, and you'll find Zhu Ge Liang's house.  But
he's not there.  His brother Zhu Ge Jin will tell you that he left and might
be at Chi Zhou Ping's house in Lou Sang (remember there?).  Ugh.  That's
the very first village you started in.  You can take a Gullwing to Xu
Zhou or walk (I'd choose the latter).  At Xu Zhou, go east and into the
village.  Go up the path on the right, and into Chi Zhou Ping's house.
There will be an old man there.  Is he Zhu Ge Liang?  No...but he'll tell
you that he already left.  OK, so then go back to Zhu Ge Liang's house, but
Zhu Ge Jin will tell you went went out again and will call you at Nan Yang,
so wait there.  ARGH!  Go to Nan Yang, go to the records keeper and Invite
Liu Bei.  Go to the palace.  Liu Bei will tell you that Jin came by and that
his brother is home, so go there.  (Isn't this exciting?)  Go back to Zhu Ge
Liang's house, Jin will tell you Zhu Ge Liang's sleeping but come in anyway.
If you talk to Zhu Ge Liang, you'll see he's sleeping, and you can wake him
up if you want to.  If you, he'll complain, "Who are you?  Can't you see
I'm sleeping?!  Is my house on fire or something?  No?  Then we have nothing
to talk about.  Get out of here!"  If you don't wake him, you'll have an
unseen choice.  Here's what you do: Hit "No" then don't hit anything (otherwise
Jin will say something to you).  Wait a while (about 20 secs), and Zhu Ge Liang
will suddenly start talking and will join you.  He'll go to Gui Yang castle and
will meet you there.


How to get Zhu Ge Liang (ZGL for short) simplified
1. Go to ZGL's house and talk to Jin
2. Go to Chi Zhou Ping's house in Lou Sang village
3. Talk to Chi Zhou Ping
4. Go back to ZGL's house and talk to Jin
5. Go to Nan Yang and invite Liu Bei
6. Talk to Liu Bei
7. Go back to ZGL's house
8. Talk to ZGL, DO NOT WAKE HIM, and do not hit another button after you've
said "NO."
9. Wait for an automatic response from ZGL, he'll wake up.
10. Go to Gui Yang, and get ZGL!



Continuing on...

Continue past the bridge, southwest of Ling Ling.  You'll notice enemies are
MUCH harder.  Also from this point, you'll only be fighting Rebel Forces, no
more bandit forces or pirate forces.

By the way, he'll give you TONS of stuff in the spoils.  From here, proceed
on south, east, south, past the bridge, south, and west around the mountains.
You'll run into a house.

If you STILL haven't defeated Yuan Shao or don't gotten Zhu Ge Liang, you
will not be able to continue.  The man will just tell you that you're entering
the region Shu.  You'll have to return to Ji Zhou to beat Yuan Shao or get
Zhu Ge Liang in the Jing Zhou region.

If you have done both, you will find that Shu has been invaded.

The Han Zhong army (not the same old Han Zhong, a different one) threatens
Shu and the ruler Liu Zheng.  Go west, and you'll run into a fortress.

In this fortress, it's basically deserted except one man, who will tell
you that Liu Zheng is being held prisoner in Fu Shui castle.  Otherwise,
there's nothing else here.  Go north.  ALL the way north.  Around all
the mountains, north.  A smoke pot is a good idea at this point.  After
all the mountains, go east then north, to a gate of Fu Shui.

People are talking about the new rebels, the last Tiger and Liu Zheng.

Yikes I guess I completely omitted this part.  Freeing Liu Zheng may prove
to be aggravating, since there's no clarification on how to "ram" the door
down.  Basically, it takes some patience.  What I did, I just ran around, and
literally just ran into the door so it made a sound.  You can just try holding
up at the door (so it makes that "crunching" sound), but I don't know if that
works.  You'll have to do this several times, (it took me 5 minutes) to do this,
if you know of an easier way or the actual way, please let me know.  But I
just ran around the room and then ran straight into the door, and eventually
it came down.  YOU NEED TO FREE LIU ZHENG FIRST TO CONTINUE!

Continue north, go EAST around the mountains, more north, west, then south
to the next castle gate.

Choose yes or no.  I think you know what to do.  If you say no, he'll
become a free general (and you'll run into him randomly...and may have to

Not much here, but people are relieved.  However, they worry because Cao Cao
is sick and Wei may be in turmoil soon.  You need to visit the swordsmith to
continue.  If you haven't given him the ore yet because you haven't found
him, first, make sure you picked up the ore in Cave 5 (take the lower path).
The go to Fu Shui castle.  Go south, and instead of going west where you
came from, go east, then north, you'll see a house.  Give him the ore, he'll
start work.  After you've defeated Cheng Du, go back to him, he'll tell you
that he made the swords, but the Yellow Scarves stole them.  After this
happens, go back to Cheng Du and talk to Liu Bei, he'll ask Zhang Fei and
Guan Yu to rule Chang Sha and Gui Yang...You don't have much of a choice.

But there's a peace for now...Sun Ce is ruling Wu, Cao Cao is helping rule
Wei, and Liu Bei has Jing Zhou and Shu with Zhang Fei and Guan Yu helping.

However, shortly thereafter, a messenger from Wei comes and says that Cao
Cao died from illness.  Right after, another messenger says that Sun Ce was
assassinated, and another comes and informs Liu Bei that Wu is attacking
Jing Zhou.  Liu Bei sends you back to Jing Zhou to help.

Where to go from here...

Make sure you have some gullwings...


=-=Chang Sha=-=

Go to Chang Sha and talk to Guan Yu.  He'll give you his son Guan Xing to
join in.  Not AS good as Guan Yu, but good enough.

People are disturbed by Wu's arrival.  Another tells you that Lu Meng has
Ling Ling castle.


=-=Gui Yang=-=
Go south to Gui Yang to meet Zhang Fei.  He'll at first tell you the same
thing Guan Yu says.  He also tells you that Sun Ce's son Sun Quan took  the
imperial seal and is calling himself emperor (sound familiar?).  Cao Pi,
Cao Cao's son also took the throne and is calling himself emperor as well.
He then tells you to go back to Liu Bei in Cheng Du...don't bother.  Just
go ahead and go back to Jing Zhou.  First attack Wu Ling.

Now go back to Cheng Du, and talk to Liu Bei.  You'll have a nice warm
conversation with him.  To make a long story short, Liu Bei doesn't want
to declare himself emperor because he doesn't want to be seen like Cao Pi
and Sun Quan as an ursurper.  But Zhang Bao and crew convince him that if
he doesn't take the emperor position and take out Cao Pi and Sun Quan, then
all is for naught, and the fighting rebels would have been completely
useless.  Liu Bei reconsiders, and takes up the emperor position.  He sends
you to attack Wei and Wu.  Now go back to Gui Yang and go south.  See
something new there?  Cross the bridge, and you will have entered Wei.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Part 6-Invasion!
Liu Bei becomes emperor, and sets out to restore peace in Wei and Wu.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Be VERY careful.  The generals in Wei are quite a big jump from the generals
in Shu and Jing Zhou.  They now have over 10000 soldiers, very advanced
tactics, and the most dreaded tactic, An Sha, which will kill your army
instantly.  Wei is not for the squeamish, go back to the Cheng Du area to
build up if you think you're too weak.

Otherwise, cross the bridge and proceed straight west to the cave.

You'll notice that you cannot go any further since a canal is blocking the
way.  Zhou Yu built that there for a reason.  Go into town and everyone
will tell you that you have to clog the canal by creating a big blast.
All you need is Saltpeter (which you hopefully picked up at the cave) and
and branch from a 1000 year old tree.  It just so happens that one of
townfolk has a 1000 year old tree sitting in his backyard.  Search around
the tree for the Dead Wood, and then talk to an old man at the front of
town.

Dead wood: Basically, go to the northwest side of town.  Look for the house
with a lone tree behind it.  Go inside the house and the man will tell you
"1000 year old tree?  I have one in my backyard!"  Well heck, what a
coincidence! Now go behind the house to the lone tree and go around each space
around the tree and "check" each spot until you find "Dead Wood."

Now bring all the items back to the old man in front of town.  He'll make the
powder, and blast the canal for you.  Now you can go through!  Proceed south
to fight Zhou Yu.

Part 8-Rise and fall of Si Ma Yi

Cao Pi is killed by Si Ma Yi, ursurped Cao Pi's throne and is ruling Wei
with an iron fist.  Last man standing wins...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
~~~
"Where are we?  We witnessed Si Ma Yi's coup and he attacked us with
thunder.  But I don't remember anything after that."
~~~

An interesting side effect to the thunder is that when you hit select to see
your party's stats, the portrait of your leader will be reversed.

Si Ma Yi knocked your party unconscious, and Guan Suo (Guan Yu's son) brought
you back to Jian Ye.  Talk to Liu Bei, he'll tell you this, and to go to
Chang Sha to talk to Guan Suo.  When you get to Chang Sha, go to the palace.
Talk to the man next to Guan Yu, and he'll tell you how to negate Si Ma Yi's
thunder: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Up, Down.  Interesting counter,
isn't it?

Anyway, when you return from Chang Sha, go back to Ru Nan to fight Si Ma Yi.
Of course, he's going to try his thunder on you so when he pauses, input the
counter.  You don't have too much time to do it, so don't take too long doing
the counter, or you'll be sent back to Jian Ye.  You'll have 5 full seconds
to do so.

~~~
"Liu Bei's army.  You can't stand against my thunder."

Si Ma Yi is the final general to threaten peace in China.  However, this
isn't the last battle.  He chose some pretty good allies as well, even
though they're dumber than a rock.  You'll find that tactics will rarely
work on him, so don't try any (but you're welcome to do anything to the
other two generals).  Also, it's not a good idea to go ALL-OUT, even with
a level 51 army (I tried it, it almost never works unless they're weakened).
Best thing is to eliminate Si Ma Yi first, or use Ce Mian on a weakened Si
Ma Yi, then go ALL-OUT (otherwise, he may Ji Mian or Wan Fu himself or his
allies).

The armor is the best you can have, so get them now. The people talk of a
tunnel leading to Chin castle, but you can't go further on foot.  The tunnel
is kinda hidden.  If you go west of the armory, you'll see a row of
mountains.  There is one mountain missing, go to that spot and you'll enter
a cave.  You may want to make sure you have A LOT of space in your inventory
before going in.

This time, Si Ma Yi got a bunch of tacticians together, so tactics may
not be the greatest thing here.  But the tactics aren't too harmful,
just beware of Ji Mian, or you'll be sitting ducks.  Ce Mian should be very
useful.

"Oh no!"

Nothing here, except compaining about Wei, and you hear about Si Ma Yi's
two sons.

Enter Chin and the people will tell you that Luo Yang has been rebuilt,
but it's been reconquered by Si Ma Yi.  Now a bridge will open up north of
Chin, and you will be able to reach the other part of Wei (from the beginning
of the game), and it leads straight to Luo Yang.

Luo Yang is the final castle.  You will have three gates to defeat.
Thankfully, the enemies are pretty easy.  I just use Zhou Yu as my
tactician and An Sha all the dumb generals.

These guys talk A LOT in this battle.  Ce Mian them and you'll be all
good.  Most of the time, they'll do the same thing.

"How much does Liu Bei pay you to throw your lives away?"

"If you serve us, we can pay you well."

At this point, if you cannot handle another battle, use Gui Huan or Tui

to get back to Luo Yang (which is the quickest route), unless you really

With Zhu Ge Liang as my primary tactician and Zhou Yu as secondary (only
because he's the smartest general that knows An Sha and Wan Fu ^_^).

Any tactic that doesn't need a success works every time is the most
effective.  I couldn't get figures for all the TPs and levels that they
are learned mostly because either I wasn't able to calculate the TP amount
used or the general already learned the technique when I acquired them.
