    Hi all,
       I was away from home for quite a few days so I didn't really work on this
    FAQ until now.  I have decreased number of characters per line so hopefully
    the print outs will be fine now.  Many things have been updated especially
    the Character&Weapon specific move section but it sure looks like the move
    list is far from complete.  The game definately has some crazy variations
    between the characters and weapons.  I personally only focus on practicing with
    one or two characters with one or two weapons per character because I found
    that it's very difficult to switch to a character who you have never played
    before.  Timing, moves, stradgies, etc are totally different for each char
    for each weapon...  Anyway, as usual, if you have anything to add to the move
    list, feel free to email me.  The way the move list is layed out is probably
    confusing but I really am not sure how eles it should be done...

    General Questions and Information:
    
    - How to get the CG ending instead of a black screen of text?
      In the game, you must follow the Bushido honor code when 
      defeating your opponent which means do not touch your opponents
      while they are still talking (don't bump into them or throw your
      sub-weapon at them either); do not kill your opponents while
      they are laying on the ground; do not kill your opponents while
      they are running away from you.  There may be more
      restrictions but I think you get the idea. ^_^
    
    - How to get the 2nd ending for the game?
      It does not matter whether you are playing on easy or hard.
      First of all, after the game started, you should run to the well 
      at the construction yard. (The one you see your character jumps
      in if you play the game normally.)  After you have arrived the
      construction yard, injure your opponent's leg then jump in the 
      well.  After this, you just need to complete the game normally 
      and you will end up fighting one extra boss after the person you
      normally would fight last.  *NOTE* you have to go through the 
      game up to the extra boss without getting a single scratch on 
      your character.  It is okay to continue fighting the extra boss.
