    ---------------
    
    v1.22 - Minor spelling fix
    v1.21 - Minor spelling fix
    v1.2  - Added city names to help you locate non-city areas (example:
            instead of "He Nei", you will see "He Nei (Luo Yang)"; also
    	changed the tactics names to reflect the PS2 version labels.
    v1.15 - Minor spelling fix
    v1.14 - Apparently, a viceroy can send someone to search Lang Xie and
            discover the Japanese. Fixed. Thanks Dantkrees from GameFAQs.com
    v1.13 - Spelling fixes and some clean up.
    v1.12 - Changed some territory names (Mount Tai = Tai Shan, Wu Zhang
            Plains = Wu Zhang Yuan)
    v1.11 - For Battle of Guan Du, Cao Cao should be stationed at Guan Du,
            he can't be at Bai Ma. Thanks to Verenti at GameFAQs.com

            Cleaned up some writing; removed "you have to play as a certain
            faction" advice since it seems that many events don't require
            you to play as a specific faction
    v1.03 - Spelling fix: Lang Xie (not Lang Ye)
    v1.02 - Spelling and grammatical fixes; no content changes

    Notes: For each event, you need to play a game with historical mode
    enabled. Otherwise, it's probably not going to work. Also, for the
    Searching Events, you simply have to search the event location to make
    it happen. The Major Events category of events has movies. There is
    some overlap between the Searching and Major events as you have to
    search for Zhuge Liang, search for the Duke of Shan Yang (the deposed
    Emperor Xian), and send your liege to search Tai Shan.
    
    Recommended scenarios and recommended factions are simply that:
    recommendations. You are not obligated to play the indicated scenarios
    or factions, but going by the recommendations makes it easier to see
    the event.
    
    Please also note that these are guidelines: sometimes the event you
    want does not happen even though you may have all the requirements
    fulfilled. All I can suggest to you is try something a bit different
    (e.g. use another officer, try the trigger at another time of the
    year, increase your faction's reputation level, etc.)
    
    Some terms worth distinguishing:
    PLANNING PHASE: The part of your turn where you issue your orders to
    your officers, set up armies to march and fight, etc. This is to be
    distinguished from the...
    EXECUTION PHASE: After you have finished making your orders in the
    Planning Phase, the Execution Phase is where time passes and your
    orders are carried out.
    
    STANDARD SCENARIO: This is a normal scenario, out of a total of 10
    scenarios. It is to be distinguished from a...
    "WHAT IF?" SCENARIO: This is a hypothetical scenario that you can play.
    They set up the map in a way that is slightly different than what the
    novel or history has put it in that year. There are up to 10 of these
    too, but not all of them are available: they have to be unlocked by
    finishing a game having defeated all the non-Chinese tribes.
    
    TACTICAL POINT TOTAL: This is the proficiency of your officer's tactical
    abilities. It ranges from 0 to 1,000. The higher the TPT, the more
    likely the officer will be to use that category of tactics, and with
    greater effectiveness.
    
    JIAN YE/MO LING: This city was originally called Mo Ling before Sun Quan
    moved his capital to here from Chai Sang, at the request of his trusted
    advisor, Zhang Hong. From that point forward, the city was renamed to
    Jian Ye.
    
    Onward!

    ------------------------- Searching Events -----------------------------
    
    1. THE THREE VISITS
    RECOMMENDED SCENARIO: Standard Scenario #5 (207)
    RECOMMENDED FACTION TO CONTROL: Liu Bei
    EVENT LOCATION: Long Zhong (Xin Ye)
    OTHER REQUIREMENTS:
    1. It is either February, March, or any time between June and October.
    2. Liu Bei is a liege.
    3. Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, and Xu Shu serve Liu Bei's faction.
    4. Liu Bei, Xu Shu and Zhuge Liang are all alive.
    5. Xu Shu's loyalty to Liu Bei is 96 or higher.
    6. Liu Bei controls the port of Long Zhong.
    7. Zhuge Liang has not entered the game yet.
    8. Xu Shu tells Liu Bei that Zhuge Liang should be found at Long Zhong.
    TRIGGER: Send Liu Bei to search Long Zhong.
    RESULTS:
    1. You will get the first event where Zhuge Liang is not at home (the
    first two "visits" being summarized in this event).
    2. Once Liu Bei returns to his home city, send Liu Bei to search Long
    Zhong again. This time, he will meet Zhuge Liang, who will agree to
    serve Liu Bei.
    3. Liu Bei's faction's reputation goes up. Zhuge Liang's loyalty is 100.
    NOTE: If Xu Shu discovers Zhuge Liang instead, Liu Bei has at most one
    year to hire Zhuge Liang (again, send Liu Bei to hire him; in the
    meantime, Zhuge Liang will not join any other faction). After one year,
    ANY faction can try to hire Zhuge Liang.
    PERSONAL NOTE: That's interesting how Liu Bei has exclusive rights to
    Zhuge Liang for a while.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2. THE DUKE OF SHAN YANG
    RECOMMENDED SCENARIO: Standard Scenario #8 (225)
    RECOMMENDED FACTION TO CONTROL: Sun Quan
    EVENT LOCATION: He Nei (Luo Yang)
    OTHER REQUIREMENTS:
    1. It is before 234 AD (otherwise Liu Xie is dead).
    2. The Han Dynasty has been abolished.
    3. Your faction was not the one who abolished the Han Dynasty.
    4. Your faction's reputation is 700 or higher.
    5. Your faction controls at least two whole provinces.
    6. Your liege's title is not Emperor -OR- you are a Liu faction.
    TRIGGER: Search He Nei.
    RESULTS:
    1. Your faction will discover the deposed Han Emperor Xian, Liu Xie, who
    has been living as the Duke of Shan Yang. You will have a choice to
    either protect the Emperor or act stubbornly.
    2A. If you decide not to protect Liu Xie, he dies.
    2B. Your faction's reputation goes down.
    2C. The loyalty of your faction's officers, who have Justice ratings of
    11 or higher, goes down.
    2D. All factions will have their relations with you worsen.
    3A. If you decide to protect him, Liu Xie will officially abdicate his
    claim to the throne to you.
    3B. Your faction's reputation goes up.
    3C. The loyalty of your faction's officers goes up.
    3D. You are promoted to Emperor and accordingly you get the Emperor's
    level of ranks and titles to which you may grant your officers.
    3E. If your faction is NOT a Liu, then all the Liu factions (Liu Bei,
    Liu Yan, Liu Biao, etc.) will have worse relations with you. Otherwise,
    the relations remain as they are.
    3F. Any other factions whose lieges also have the title of Emperor will
    their relations with your faction worsen.
    PERSONAL NOTE: I would have thought that Cao Pi would be rather happy
    if Liu Xie dies at someone else's hand, so his relationship with your
    faction wouldn't worsen...but maybe he's a sadist and wanted Liu Xie to
    live in shame ("a fate far worse than death" kind of deal).

    4. Dong Zhuo is a liege and his faction has the Han Emperor.
    5. Lu Bu and Wang Yun both serve Dong Zhuo's faction.
    TRIGGER: Event happens at the end of an Execution Phase.
    RESULTS:
    1. This is a two-part event which happens at the end of the Execution
    Phase. The first part happens between January and July and the second
    part happens between April and July.
    2. Lu Bu kills Dong Zhuo.
    3. All items belonging to Dong Zhuo go to Lu Bu.
    4. If Dong Zhuo had armies on the battlefield, they automatically
    retreat to their home bases.
    5. If Niu Fu, Dong Min, and Li Ru are also in the same city, Bargain, or
    port as Dong Zhuo, they die. If they are not in the same place, they

    8. The loyalty of Li Jue, Guo Si, Zhang Ji, Zhang Xiu, Fan Chou, Jia Xu,

                     * if those three are still alive
    
    PERSONAL NOTE: Although it says to play as Dong Zhuo's faction, I have
    seen this event happen even though I was playing as another faction; I
    guess its importance to China as a whole would permit this event to be
    seen even though you are not playing as Dong Zhuo's faction.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3 and 4. THE THREE VISITS
    RECOMMENDED SCENARIO: Standard Scenario #5 (207)

    NOTE: If Xu Shu discovers Zhuge Liang instead, Liu Bei has at most one
    year to hire Zhuge Liang (again, send Liu Bei to hire him; in the
    meantime, Zhuge Liang will not join any other faction). After one year,
    ANY faction can try to hire Zhuge Liang.
    PERSONAL NOTE: That's interesting how Liu Bei has exclusive rights to
    Zhuge Liang for a while.

    4. Yuan Shao's faction's food supply is reduced by 70%.
    5. The loyalty of Cao Cao's faction's officers goes up.
    PERSONAL NOTE: It's pretty obvious (to me) that ALL of those territories
    listed above in Requirement 8 do not have to be controlled by Yuan Shao.
    He could control some of them or just one. The point is that AMONG those
    territories, Yuan Shao needs 30,000 soldiers stationed.
    
    Thanks also goes out to Verenti from GameFAQs.com for helping me with
    Requirement #6.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    6. THE BATTLE OF CHI BI
    RECOMMENDED SCENARIO: Standard scenario #5 (207)
    RECOMMENDED FACTION TO CONTROL: Sun Quan
    EVENT LOCATION: n/a
    OTHER REQUIREMENTS:
    1. Zhou Yu serves Sun Quan's faction.
    2. Your faction's relationship with the faction that controls Xiangyang
    (likely Cao Cao) is hostile.
    3. The faction that controls Xiangyang is NOT Liu Bei's.
    4. Zhou Yu is stationed at Lu Kou or is commanding an army originating
    from Lu Kou.
    5. At Wu Lin, Chang Sha, Lu Kou, Han Jin, Hua Rong, Jiang Xia, Xia Kou,
    or Wu Chang, there is at least one army unit travelling by ship.
    6. The faction that controls Xiangyang has at least 30,000 soldiers
    stationed throughout Wu Lin, Chang Sha, Lu Kou, Han Jin, Hua Rong,

    3. The faction who controls Xiangyang loses 90% of its soldiers
    stationed at Wu Lin, Chang Sha, Lu Kou, Han Jin, Hua Rong, Jiang Xia,
    Xia Kou, and Wu Chang. All of that faction's armies automatically
    retreat to their home bases.
    4. The loyalty of your faction's officers goes up.
    PERSONAL NOTE: Again, as with the battle of Guan Du, ALL of those
    territories listed above in Requirements 5 and 6 do not have to be
    controlled by the enemy faction. He could control some of them or just
    one. The point is that AMONG those territories, the enemy faction needs
    30,000 soldiers stationed. Also, it doesn't seem to make sense that Zhou
    Yu could be stationed or based out of Lu Kou if the enemy owns it, so
    use a bit of common sense about how this event is to be done.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    scenarios, you have to defeat the Japanese city you just discovered...
    all 500,000 soldiers of them (if you're playing on Expert mode)...

    the relations remain as they are.
    3F. Any other factions whose lieges also have the title of Emperor will
    their relations with your faction worsen.
    PERSONAL NOTE: I would have thought that Cao Pi would be rather happy
    if Liu Xie dies at someone else's hand, so his relationship with your
    faction wouldn't worsen...but maybe he's a sadist and wanted Liu Xie to
    live in shame ("a fate far worse than death" kind of deal).
