    -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

    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...
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    6. Is there any part of the game you want to cover? (Walkthrough)
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    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.
    
    
    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!

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    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.

    --Robe
    --Leather
    -Supplies shop
    --Elixir A
    --Resurrect
    --Steed
    --Gullwing
    
    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.

    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:

    Front door:

    <<<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.
    
    ~~~
    "You want to attack Dong Zhuo?  Ha!  I, Hua Xiong, will dispatch you myself."

    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.

    As you exit the cave another general, Guan Ping will ask to join you (I would

    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.

    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.

    Basically, Chang An's an oasis.  Soldiers here are in paradise over the great

    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.

    Some of the people here are thankful that you freed the castle, but most of

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    Use the Zhou Letr on him, and he'll be happy his sister's safe.  You find

    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
    run into is Wu Ling castle.  You are now in the Jing Zhou region, BTW.

    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

    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.

    Didn't take much convincing.  It's amazing how quickly generals change
    their minds about you.  You now have a very good tactician until you find
    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.
    
    
    One of the first generals you'll fight is Lu Bu, again.

    Same as before, but even stronger with more troops.  This will be the last
    time you fight him, since after this fight, he dies.  I have not tried
    holding on to the Gemsword until now, but I'd imagine that it won't work.

    "Oh my life comes to an end.  My life was an essay in betrayal."

    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.

    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.

    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...

    Go to Chang Sha and talk to Guan Yu.  He'll give you his son Guan Xing to

    Go south to Gui Yang to meet Zhang Fei.  He'll at first tell you the same

    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.

    Here you can find the third sword, Bo Ye.  A kid will tell you that he cut
    his foot on something under a tree.  Go straight to the right of the kid,
    and check below the tree to find Bo Ye.  Apparently, one of the townspeople
    stole it.  Hey, what goes around, comes around, right?

    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.

    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).

    You get to see different scenes of the game, and portraits of the different
    generals.  Sorry, no "second quest."  What more could you want, Japan?
    
    That's what Kessen and Nobunaga's Ambition is for ^_^
    
    By the way, the characters in the quotes will change if you have different
    people in your party.
    
    
    *SPOILER FINISH!*
    
    
    
    
    
    *SPOILER FINISH!*
    
    
    
    My final army goes something like this in condescending order:
    Zhang Bao
    Zhao Yun
    Guan Xing
    Ma Chao
    Huang Zhong
    *Zhu Ge Liang
    Zhou Yu
    
    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 ^_^).

    7. Tactics
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    Here are a list of tactics, levels needed to learn and how much TP used.
    The most effective of all of these is Ce Mian and Ji Mian.
    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.
    If you can help me fill the "?" in, I'd appreciate it.
