Personal Notes 
    I made this FAQ because I want to share information. That's all. 
    
    I am a 15 year old Japanese so I'm pretty sure about the 
    names of the characters.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THE 9 ORIGINAL GENERALS

There are a total of 28 characters.In this section, I am going 
to introduce to you the first 9 generals that are playable

I also included some combination attacks. They can deal a 
good amount of damage. Unfortunately, the enemy generals can 
sometimes block them.  

But first, here are my FAQ notations:
 	Regular slash: R
	Charge attack: C
	Special attack: S

*These 4 combos with Charges to end them are universal for all the 
characters in the game:
	RC
	RRC
	RRRC
	
*I will only note the DAMAGING combos of the characters who I 
think most of you use.

Musou mode with all the possible characters. Im still going to

OTHER STUFF TO DO

1. Complete all the stages that can be used in free mode
	-Simple, just finish Musou mode with 1 of the original
      generals from each kingdom

2. Increase your character's stats
	-As long as the character you are using is playable in Musou 
	mode, keep on using him and get the attack and defense
	power ups the enemy generals give when they die. Eventually,
	you will be able to maximize all the stats of your character
	and become as strong or stronger than that sucky RYO-FU.


Sorry. There are still so many things to do but I don't have the time 
to write them , for now. I'll update this FAQ ASAP.
