Version Info

v1.1 Combo Fixes, a few typos in the previous ver 1/17/2003
     added some new combos, under Leopard style and Fu Jow Pai

v1.0 The first release of FAQ 1/13/2003

This is a small guide I decided to put together after spending a morning 
figuring out how to be effective with Nitara.  She has quite a few Juggles and 
combos, that the game does not teach you in the Konquest.  Some of these moves 
are worth using, while others are not.

I included a translation table with the faq.  So this faq could be used
for all the consoles.  I've played the ps2 and xbox versions of this game.
As I have time, I will add new finds or fixes to this faq.

any corrections or comments can be sent to: horror@wellofsouls.net

Special Moves

Nitara has two basic special moves.  The unicorn kick is a good way to make a 
quick attack from a medium distance.  It does decent damage, when used at the 
end of a juggle.  The blood spit is a standard projectile.

*Powered Up Combos*

These can be done after using Nejin in the Fu Jow Pai style.  This makes Nitara
do about 2.4-2.5 times more damage for a brief period of time, or one combo.
It does a ton of damage when used with a high hit count combo, like her three
branch combo, when a juggle is tossed on the end.  I only included a few of the
combos that can be done powered up.  I will add more in the next update of this
faq.
