    The aim of *this* guide is to give you a full breakdown of the combat 
    abilities screen in Conan (the screen which lists all the combos and parries
    in the game), and to confirm what bonus rewards you should expect to get for
    mastery of each of the moves in-game.
    
    If you've any questions, queries or HELPFUL suggestions, you can get in touch
    with me by e-mail at shadowpath@hotmail.com - however, if you've nothing cool
    or productive to say to me, don't waste my time or you'll just incur my 
    disrespect.  Thanks !! :)

                              COMBAT ABILITIES SCREEN                          
     ============================================================================
    
    Those of you that have already played the game will be very familiar with the
    combat abilities screen - it is where you go during play to spend the 
    experience points you obtain from picking up red runes during the game, and
    where you trade off those points for combat skills, combos and so on.
    
    The screen is divided up into FIVE main pages, and so it makes sense to go 
    through each, one-at-a-time, so here we go !!
    
     ============================================================================
                                       0 0 1

                                 CONAN'S PORTRAIT                              
                                 "READY TO LEARN"                              
     ============================================================================
    
    The first screen is called "READY TO LEARN", and shows you a complete list of
    the combat abilities you have not yet learned, but which are of your 
    approximate level.  As you purchase combos, you will find that some are 
    replaced with others.  This symbolises your progression through the game, from
    a novice barbarian to a master combatant.  Naturally the combos that replace
    others are tougher to pull off, but they adequately mimic your learning curve
    in the game, so it's all good.
    
    To the right of each ability you will see the key combination required to
    execute it.
    
    Beneath each ability is a short, text description of the ability in question,
    together with confirmation of how many experience points it will cost you to
    learn it, what effects it brings to bear (e.g. grapple, shockwave, etc.), and
    what bonus you will get from it if you do it right.
    
    Mastery of a combat ability results in great bonuses.

     ============================================================================
    
    This second screen shows you all the general moves that are available to Conan
    during play.  Some are given to you automatically, others must be purchased.
    
    General Moves are best used on small enemies (as larger enemies will almost
    invariably counter your attempts to grapple you AND deal you a small amount
    of damage in the process, most often with a kick to the chest), or stunned
    enemies.
    
    There are NINE (9) combat abilities in the General School.
    
    Here is a description of each of the moves in this section :-

                                  SWORD AND SHIELD                             
                                    "ONE-HANDED"                               
     ============================================================================
    
    These moves can only be executed when you are wielding either a one-handed
    sword, a one-handed axe, or a combination of sword or axe plus a shield.
    
    There are two main advantages to using this school of training over the 
    others, namely that :-
    
       1) Because it allows for combinations of one-handed weapon, or one-handed
          weapon with shield, it boasts more combat abilities than any of the
          other schools individually; and
       2) Using a shield enables you to block arrows - no other school allows you
          to do that.
    
    There are THIRTY (30) combat abilities in the One-Handed School.
    
    Here is a list of the moves that fall into this category ...

     ============================================================================
    
    When you, like me, love the glitziness and flash-factor of wielding TWO one-
    handed weapons at the same time (even though this makes you ultimately less
    effective in combat than if you were able to block arrows or decapitate your
    foes with a single strike), then this is the ONLY style you'll ever need ;)
    
    There are TWENTY-FOUR (24) combat abilities in the Dual-Wield School.
    
    Here are the moves for the Dual-Wield School of Training ...

                            TWO HANDS GRASPING A SWORD                         
                                    "TWO-HANDED"                               
     ============================================================================
    
    Dealing out the most damage per blow, this is the school of choice for the
    heavy-hitters, and those who like to hit multiple enemies with single strikes.
    
    If you've ever wanted to BE Sauron ?  This is about as close as you'll get in
    the Conan World ;)
    
    There are TWENTY-THREE (23) combat abilities in the Two-Handed School.
    
    Incidentally, whilst the two-handed school may SEEM like the underdog a bit,
    it does have some truly majestic moves available to it, such as the Slayer's
    Bladesaw which left me LITERALLY open-mouthed when I did it the first time.
    
    So without further ado, here are the moves for the Two-Handed School ...

    As I mentioned at the top of this guide, I would like to dedicate it as a 
    piece of work to my mum, my dad and my brother.  I have been so very, very
    lucky to be born into the family I have been - a family that has been nothing
    but loving and supportive of my every endeavour.  I can only hope that I 
    can return the love you've given me, and be worthy of it.
