    ===============================================================================
    
    Welcome to 'Kujaku Ou II' for the NES, released by Pony Canyon in 1990.
    
    This game was only released in Japan but has an unofficial translation. If you
    are looking to play this game I suggest you also apply the translation to make
    it easier, else you will have to go through a lot of Japanese text.
    
    This sequel to the aptly named 'Kojaku Ou' released in 1988 follows the story
    of Peacock King returning to Mt Koya temple with Asura, his rival Jukindo
    master Onimaru, and introduces Zen master Kou Kaifou. A kidnapping at an
    archaeological site and an unearthing of a strange folding screen unleash the
    6th Deva King Dairokuten, embodied by the reincarnation of Japanese Civil War
    general Oda Nobunaga and the return of eight saints. Phoenix, an elusive rogue
    monk has threatened to destroy the entire Mt Koya sanctuary with an army of the
    dead.
    
    Note:
    Most of this guide was written by snark (http://www.boojumsnark.com/). She
    translated the game and knows more about it than me, besides I loathe these
    dungeon crawlers and was hoping for more adventure parts. Once I reached the
    first dungeon I did not touch the game in over a year and ended up just using
    her guide (with permission) with some editing changes. All credit goes to her.
    
    Suggestions, comments or errors - tell me about it. Enjoy!

    Start a new game if you are new to the game, else input a password you can get
    by praying during the game. Keep the password on a piece of paper to continue
    later. The game also has a choice between Slow and Fast text speed.

    The display is split into three parts. Section A has the current location
    and/or person you are in contact with. Part B is the action menu which will
    changes as you select some. Finally, the lower part (C) is for messages from
    the game, people talking to you or simply other information. The stats are
    also displayed at this spot.

    Characters:

    Kou Kaifou - Soto Zen Master of meditational Zen Buddhism.
    Onimaru - Jukindo master (a Japanese black/magic martial art.) 
    
    
    Battles:
    ````````
    When you encounter an enemy you have each character for attacking or guarding.
    The magic power is shared by the team. Each attack can use a full-circle magic
    round or just use nothing at all (set with the Left and Right directions). The
    latter is prone to miss the enemy. You can set the same for defending to suffer
    less damage. Upping these circles is costly and you do not get back as much
    magic power as you spend doing max power attacks.
