    difficult and time consuming task, I only seek
    a little credit for it. Thanks!

    INTRODUCTION -
    
    These charts are taken from a FAQ in the works that I am
    producing for the characters in Dynasty Warriors III.
    However, that takes a long time to do as I like to check
    and test everything before I write it to make sure the
    facts I'm giving are correct.
    
    However these charts are now complete. I thought people
    might like to have a look at these now, instead of when
    I'm able to finish the full blown FAQ. That and it puts
    them in a nice condensed file for easier reading.
    
    Enjoy!

    RANDOM FACT -
    
    For the record, a character's life bar does have a
    measureable numerical value. Completed, but unadjusted by
    weapons or items, a character has 280 life. Seems like it
    would be a nice even 300, but I tried that and it doesn't
    add up right. It's 280.
    
    Lu Bu with his Lunar Halberd equiped has 370, and could
    get as high as 430 with a good Peacock Urn.

    SPEED CHART -
    
    Short Explination : All characters were timed between a
    set distance of two points. Each of them ran the course
    3 times, to prevent human error by making sure the 3 times
    were consistant. From this I devised the 1-10 ranking
    system, 30 seconds being a 10, 52.5 seconds being a 1.
    So 2.5 seconds = 1 rank.
    
       Normal speed is marked by an '@' on the chart.
       Those with extra speed on their 4th weapons have a
    second rating, marked by an 'X'.

    BOW DEFENSE CHART
    
    Short Explination : HPs do have a numerical value, but you
    can't see it in the game. Using mad math skillz, I've
    figured them out and based this chart off the ammount of
    life LOST, not remaining, when shot by one specific
    Crossbow Captian 5 times. High numbers to the right are
    bad. Low numbers to the left are good.
    
    As previously noted, characters only have 280 life. Even
    though these are some of the most powerful archer units
    in the game, losing 188 life in only 5 shots as Guan Yu
    is something to consider.

    BOW ATTACK CHART
    
    Short Explination : The two units this was tested on are...
    
    Crossbow - 190 life
    Crossbow Captian - 255 life
    
    The chart bars on the chart below represent those two numbers.
    Both types were hit with a charge arrow and the ammount of
    damage measured. Unfortunatly, making a chart in which I could
    position exact numerical values would need a lot more space,
    or a spreadsheet, or something... So this one is basic.
    
    Life remaining on Crossbow type enemies is marked with an 'X'.
    Life remaining on Crossbow Captians is marked with an '@'.
    
    You might notice some odd variation. So did I, but even
    re-running the tests came out with the same results. I don't
    know why some Generals do more to one type than other Generals,
    but less to another. Just to drive me nuts, I guess...
