      "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" is one of the greatest , if not the
    penultimate, novels of ancient China. As in other classical Chinese
    novels the epic tale features a cast of over 100 characters, and more than
    twenty "main" characters who wield incredible influence over the saga. The
    story contains fictional elements but is primarily historical.  It takes place
    around 200 CE during a period of civil war.
    
      Needless to say, a story of such depth makes wonderful material for
    games.
    One of the most influential game designing companies, KOEI, based many
    of their games upon this era. Their games range from the Romance of the
    Three Kingdoms series (I - VI), to the three "Hero" episodes
    (Sanguozhi - Legend of Heroes, Sanguozhi - Legend of Kong Ming, and
    Sanguozhi - Legend of Cao Cao), and to even a fighting game (Dynasty
    Warriors).
    Koei captures the wonder stemming from that time period.  Panda
    Entertainment
    created two fighting games for the PC (Sango Fighter 1 and 2) and the
    strange
    game "Panda Dodgeball" featuring these characters.  Many other companies
    on
    various platforms have created RPGs, SIMs, fighting games, and more
    based upon
    this age in history.
    
      Of course, there is always the occasional oddball. Among the Capcom
    games
    came the Three Kingdoms based fighting game... Warriors of Fate. In this
    
    game names such as Zhao Yun were replaced by Subutai ($%&?!).  It
    appears
    Capcom wanted to remove the "shame" of basing a game on Chinese
    history...
    but any eye which is keen can instantly realize these character's
    portraits
    match those of a previously forgotten game by Capcom... Destiny of an
    Emperor.
    
      This game was very revolutionary. However, people rejected it, because
    
    (I suppose) of the Chinese influence. The names, for one thing, are
    difficult to pronounce, and even harder to remember, for the Eastern
    audience. What's more, the time period seems archaic and obscure for
    many
    people to appreciate. This subjectivity kept people from discovering the
    
    many features in the game nobody ever thought of:
    
    1) Gullwings - Items returning you to any of the designated castles in
    the
                   game, allowing less tedious and extremely fast travel
    through
                   China.
    2) Recruiting - Any warlord that does not die, and does not belong in
    the
                    final battle (e.x. Sima Yi, Xu Zhu, etc.) can be
    recruited
                    into your party! And you thought Pokemon was the first
                    to introduce this...
    3) A story-telling RPG, instead of the usual "Fight and defeat the evil
       whatever" theme. Alliances change, betrayals occur, surprise events
       everywhere... adding to the storyline.
    
      It was a very good game, but alas, it did not gain the popularity it
    deserved... in the U.S.
    
      However in Japan it was wholeheartedly embraced. Stories of China and
    Japan are taught in the schools, and there is a greater fascination with
    
    the ages of the Three Kingdoms and Feudal Japan than in America... so,
    a sequel came out, named Destiny of an Emperor II - Legend of Kong Ming.
    
    (Actually, in Japanese, what we know as "Destiny of an Emperor" is
    something like "Devouring the Heavens and Earth" which translates to
    "Conquering the Land" [sort of...] )
    
      It was larger, it was longer, it had a convulated plot, more battles,
    more
    caves, more items, and was an overall improvement over the its
    predecessor,
    Destiny of an Emperor I. Seeing how great the original was, it is easy
    to
    see that the second one was really a game worth checking out...
    unfortunately,
    it was never released in the U.S. Aside from the difficult importation
    of the
    cart itself, a ROM image was the only way to enjoy the game. Since its
    discovery, it has floated around the internet, homeless and untouched.
    
      Or has it?
    
      Destiny Translations, in conjunction with Magic Translations, Gaijin
    Productions, and The Vale, decided to tackle this game of immense scope
    and playability. The classic that had been untouched, unknown was now...
    
    an English reality. I have been bestowed the duty of writing an FAQ for
    this
    epic RPG. With my intimate knowledge of DoAE I, and the partial FAQ I
    have written for it, my Chinese background (helpful with both culture
    and
    language), and my brilliant skills at... stuff, I will now present to
    you the
    FAQ for this incredible sequel.
    
      Following this intro is the walkthrough, where most of the text will
    go.
    They go in separate "scenarios" of my design, and all the scenarios are
    led
    by "matches", a Chinese writing style not too different from poetry.
    These
    matches are be extracted from a translation of the original novel,
    San Guo Zhi Yan Yi. Of course, if a matching chapter does not exist, I
    will
    create a suitable one myself. Scenarios will end with "Decisive Battles"
    of my
    choosing (NOTE: That doesn't mean you have to WIN them, hehehe)
    
      Following that, are lists of items, weapons, armor, and I guess the
    second largest item in the file... the list of EVERY general/warlord
    that
    appears in the game. The latter includes their name, strength, agility,
    intelligence, number of soldiers, weapon class, and favorite terrain.
    
      Third to last, oddities, for strange stuff I chose to put there.
    
      Second to last, credits for those many deserving people.
    
      And last, but not least, the copyright stuff for those who need it.

    -1. Yuan Shu's Ambition Drives the Tyrant to Usurp the Throne -
    -   Cao Cao's Cunning Enables the Schemer to Expose the Oath  -
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    (NOTE: This one I made myself. There was no chapter in the novel to
           correctly state this scenario of the game)
    
      China has been in peace for 200 years. However, evil once again stalks
    
    the land. Following the Yellow Scarves revolt, the warlord Dong Zhuo
    attempted
    to usurp the throne but was stopped by a coalition of generals.  The
    royal stone
    of the Han Dynasty had somehow fallen into the hands of one of these
    warlords,
    Yuan Shu, an ambitious schemer.
    
      Among those who have risen up against these evils are two distinct
    men,
    Cao Cao and Liu Bei. Liu Bei is a descendant of the Han Dynasty who,
    along
    with his oath brothers Guan Yu and Zhang Fei, have performed many heroic
    deeds.
    However, Liu Bei did not receive notice for his achievements, and ended
    up
    serving the Han Emperor (Xian Di, or Xian Emperor) who was under the
    influence
    of Cao Cao.
    
      Cao Cao, controlling the court, is a brillian general, who is perhaps
    more
    ambitious than even Yuan Shu. Comparartively, Cao Cao possessed a keener
    intellect
    and more powerful army. In addition, he held immense influence over the
    royal
    family.  The Han Emperor was wrapped around Cao Cao's finger. Many men
    knew of his
    treachery, but none dared to speak openly against him.
    
      Also under the Han Emperor was a loyal servant and general, Dong
    Cheng, who was
    a respected advisor for many years. He was repulsed by Cao Cao's evil.
    Secretly
    he decreed a blood oath against Cao Cao. The seven oath takers consisted
    of both
    great officials and generals, such as Wang Zhifu, Ma Teng, and even Liu
    Bei.
    
      With all of the attention on Yuan Shu, Cao Cao was not alerted of the
    conspiracy against him. The one day, word came of Yuan Shu's desperate
    escape towards the domain of his brother, Yuan Shao. You, Liu Bei, have
    been summoned to the royal court...
    
    Xuzhou
    -------
      Cao Cao, with his influence on the emperor, decides to use you as a
    tool
    to stop Yuan Shu. Readying you with 200 gold, Cao Cao also gives you two
    
    of his generals as reinforcements - Zhu Ling and Lu Zhao. (NOTE: You can
    
    always see the stats of the generals in the STATS section.) Walking
    south,
    you will meet and join up with your brothers Guan Yu and Zhang Fei at
    the
    door of the palace and the gate, respectively.
    
      At the beginning of the game, all five members of this party start
    with the most basic of equipment - a Wooden shield, Cotton armor, and
    Bandana helmet. Each member also starts with a basic weapon of his own
    class. As for items, Liu Bei starts with two Revive potions, while Guan
    Yu
    prepared 3 Herbal potions. (NOTE: The equipment is of no use to you
    unless you "equip" it.)
    
      Two shops of interest here are the Armory and the Item shop. The
    prices
    and effects of these items are also in the Stats section. They appear in
    
    every city, with the Armoury being the shop with a sword on its sign and
    
    the Item shop having a bag on its sign.
    
    ------------------------------------
    -   WEAPON/ARMOR   -  MISC. ITEMS  -
    ------------------------------------
    - Flail (Sword)    - Herbal Potion -
    - Stone (Axe)      - Revive Potion -
    - Club (Spear)     - Smoke Bomb    -
    - Leather (Armor)  -               -
    - Cap (Helmet)     -               -
    - Leather (Shield) -               -
    ------------------------------------
    
      There are also other shops: the Gym (Yin-Yang sign), which raises
    levels
    (to a certain extent) for 500 G; the HQ (dragon sign), which lets
    you leave and add items, as well as revealing the experience needed for
    next
    level and saving; and the Inn, which currently charges sleeping for 5
    Gold
    each, but will eventually charge more later in the game.
    
      When you are ready, leave the town and go south as Cao Cao said. Fight
    
    battles on the way and earn experience. Note that Liu Bei and Guan Yu
    have tactic points, meaning the tactics they learn (similar to spells in
    
    fantasy RPGs) can be used. Also note that Liu Bei, Guan Yu, and Zhang
    Fei
    gain more soldiers after every level. Fianlly, don't forget that Zhang
    Fei
    is an expert at mountain-fighting, and Guan Yu does his best on the
    plains.
    You can make Liu Bei your strategist at any time (Guan Yu can not become
    
    a tactician), and his tactics can be used by everyone.
    
      Go south, then east. You should see one of Yuan Shu's best generals,
    Ji
    Ling waiting for you. (NOTE: I will post explicit information on
    generals
    only. The forces they have with them are often just annoyances sitting
    there, doing minimal damage to you anyway. Besides, I have no time for
    listing every single force's attributes, for they often vary a little)
    Go up to him for what I call "a general battle".
    
      General battles are generally (pardon the pun) harder than normal
    battles. The generals usually have their attack and defense powers
    "pumped up" for no reason, and empty slots are filled by useless Soldier
    
    forces and such. Here, you will fight Ji Ling, Liang Gan, and Liang Ji.
    The
    latter two brothers are almost useless compared to Ji Ling in this
    battle
    with their very low fighting power.  Ji Ling, however, has a moderate
    strength.
    Focus on Ji Ling first, then Liang Ji, Liang Gan, and use the all-out
    command
    to mop up the Soldier forces. The all-out command is a very important
    command,
    and you should learn to use it. It will save you valuable time.
    
      If you want, go back and heal up. But the next general battle with
    Yuan
    Yin is not really difficult. This time, the lead general comes with Chen
    
    Lan and Li Feng (with two Soldier forces of course) to duke it out. Beat
    
    Yuan Yin first (he can use healing tactics) and then Chen Lan and down
    the
    list. He should be out in no time. (NOTE: Remember this strategy of
    fighting
    also. In later, harder battles, sometimes the deciding point in battle
    is
    the point an able tactician is defeated. Tacticians might be weak in
    fighting, but in the later game, they can do major damage to you in many
    
    aspects with their tactics alone.)
    
      Still chasing after Yuan Shu, you come north to a cave. Inside is a
    west/
    east fork. East will be a dead end with a chest of gold, while west
    leads to another branch. Going east now will get you a chest with a
    Herbal
    potion, but west will lead to a triple branch. The two north branches
    lead
    to a cap and leather armor, respectively, when the east branch takes a
    U-
    turn north and west. You have one final choice on heading north and east
    
    for a final herb, or going west, north, and finally east for a battle
    with Yuan Shu, Liang Gan, Yue Jiu, Lei Bo, and Zhang Xu. (NOTE: The
    amount
    of gold you get is random from treasure boxes)
    
      So far this is the hardest of the three battles thus far... I suggest
    taking
    out Yue Jiu first because of his small army. Then take out Yuan Shu and
    the
    battle is yours. It shouldn't be too hard, but use Chi Xin when you need
    to.
    After the fight, you can exit the cave, but you will see a pier with no
    ship on
    it. Go back into the cave and retrace your steps.
    
      After the battle, return to the castle. Zhu Ling and Lu Zhao will
    depart
    seeing that their task is done. However, on entering the town, Chen
    Deng,
    a general in town, will tell you of Cao Cao's discovery of your plan
    (the blood
    oath). Talk to Che Zhou (Cao Cao's general) and he will instigate a
    fight with
    two Soldier units. He packs quite a punch, but after a few rounds it
    should
    be okay.
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: CAO CAO
    ------------------------
      Talk to Chen Deng again. You realize Cao Cao is furious and you
    must flee to Yuan Shao. You don't want that, but it is your only
    choice, a desperate one. However, on exiting the city with Chen Deng,
    you meet... Cao Cao with four of his best generals, Xu Zhu, Dian Wei,
    Zhang Liao, and Xun Yu. They each have over 9,000 men! You better
    escape... and when you do, Zhang Fei and Guan Yu are lost in the fray...
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    -2. The Oath's Gatherers Fail Secrecy and Dies from Cao Cao-
    -   The King's Uncle Loses Battle then Escapes to Yuan Shao-
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    (NOTE: The first line was again something I made, as for the second
           line, the title "King's Uncle" is Liu Bei.)
    
      What luck. A mission of goodness ends in shambles. Many able men were
    beheaded, and what's worse, Liu Bei's brothers dissappeared. With only
    the loyal Chen Deng at his side, Liu Bei knows there will be a fighting
    chance, no matter how small. He fights bravely out of the fray and
    marches
    north.
    
      Barely escaping, Liu Bei decides to go to Yuan Shao. However, after
    just
    killing his brother... Chen Deng suggests a letter. Zheng Xuan is a
    person
    of reknown living as a hermit in the north. Chen Deng pursuades you to
    ask
    his help. Going north to a hut, you meet this old man, who suggests you
    to get a map first, in the cave below.
    
      The cave is not hard (no general battles!) and is full of treasure
    chests.
    There are eight in all. Two are gold, one contains the map, one contains
    
    a Revive potion, and the four other chests contain a Copper sword, a
    Leather armour, a Cap, and a Leather shield respectively. Equip liu Bei
    with these. It improves his defense and offense drastically (I have done
    
    over 250 damage with one hit! After a few levels that is).
    
      Going back to Zheng Xuan, he writes the King's Letter for you. Now,
    you
    have to go all the way back to the cave in which you fought Yuan Shu.
    Going
    out into the previously unaccessible pier, a boat will take you to
    Northern China.
    
      It has been a long journey with no inns, but just going north you will
    
    see a clearing with an Inn in it! Heal up. Notice a citadel to the left
    of
    you. It is empty though. To the east is a castle, also abandoned. The
    only
    choice left is going north through a valley, where you reach an empty
    house
    with two floors... hmm. Finally, you reach the castle of Ji Zhou, Yuan
    Shao's domain.
    
    Ji Zhou
    -------
      Besides the new items at the shops and the new training price at the
    gym
    (1000 G), nothing much is different. The item shop has the exact same
    things
    as Luo Yang. (NOTE: Gym prices will consistently go up in the future)

    ----------------------------------
    
      On meeting Yuan Shao, be sure to give to him the King's Letter you got
    
    from Zheng Xuan. Yuan Shao decides it is a good time to attack Cao Cao,
    and will give you one of his best generals, Yan Liang, to go with you.
    Buy
    him the Copper Spear, and go back southwest to the boat you came here
    in.
    
      You are now in Cao Cao's domain once again. Going south, you see a
    pass.
    This pass is guarded by Wei Xu, Song Xian, and Lu Yi, three useless
    bums. They come with two Soldier forces to defend the pass. For some
    reason,
    Yan Liang has an insanely high critical hit rate and can take out around
    
    500 soldiers per successful hit. This battle will easily go your way.
    
      Continuing south, you will reach a harder pass. This one is guarded by
    
    Yue Jin, Yu Jin, Cheng Yu, Li Dian, and a Soldier force. The ones to
    take
    out in this battle are Yu Jin (820 soldiers...) and Cheng Yu, who can
    use
    tactics on you. This shouldn't be too hard, for Yan Liang really comes
    in
    handy. After bursting through the defenses, you come south to the last
    pass.
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: ????????
    -------------------------
      The pass is guarded by a mysterious general (by himself, nonetheless).
    He
    has 3000 men and high stats. Whatever you do, he will critically hit Yan
    
    Liang for all of his men, and kill him. Liu Bei will then retreat to
    Ji Zhou castle.
    
      On hearing the news, Yuan Shao sends Yan Liang's comrade, the famous
    Wen Chou with you. Wen Chou will be angered at the death of Yan Liang
    and
    swears to slay this strange general. Wen Chou has the same equipment Yan
    
    Liang had, and is a little stronger. Go southwest, board the ship, and
    fight the general again. He will, again, kill Wen Chou with one hit.
    
      Hearing the words "Lord Guan", Liu Bei thinks the strong general might
    
    just be his brother, Guan Yu. He persuades Yuan Shao to send a messanger
    
    to Guan Yu and tell him to reunite with Liu Bei. On hearing that a
    general
    with strength much higher than Wen Chou and Yan Liang might become his,
    Yuan Shao decides to do as Liu Bei suggested.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    -3. The Beautiful Bearded Lord Goes a Thousand Li on One Steed-
    -   Han Shou Hou Crosses Five Passes and Kills Six Generals   -
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    (NOTE: The two titles in the above match (Beautiful... and Han Shou Hou)
    
           both refer to Guan Yu. And, instead of six generals, you only
    kill
           five.)
    
      The general was, as Liu Bei predicted, Guan Yu. He has been forced to
    serve under Cao Cao since the capture. Although working for Cao Cao,
    Guan
    Yu always thinks of his brothers Zhang Fei and Liu Bei. Taking care of
    Liu Bei's wives, ladies Mi and Gan, Guan Yu guards them everyday when he
    
    is not reading or fighting for Cao Cao...
    
      A messanger comes one day to Lord Guan. He recieves the letter,
    decides
    to depart, and goes with the ladies Mi and Gan on the Chi Tu steed that
    Lu Bu once rode. The castle is empty, and the guards were reluctant in
    letting you go. But Guan Yu eventually gets out. There is a hut near by
    where Hu Hua, Hu Ban's father lives. He will restore your health and
    give
    you a letter to Hu Ban, who currently serves Cao Cao.
    
      Then, going south, You will see your first pass. It is guarded by Kong
    
    Xin and two Soldier forces. He asks for a pass that you do not have, and
    
    fights you. He should be quite easy. Pick up the Herbal potion he drops
    and continue.
    
      The second pass is guarded by Han Fu and one Soldier force. The pass
    is asked of you (although both Cao Cao and Han Fu know that you don't
    have
    it). Defeat Han Fu, and continue onto the next pass.
    
      This one does not require you to fight (yet). The keeper Bain Xi seems
    
    to be one of your admirers, and asks you for a drink of wine. Do not
    fall
    into this trap (The soldiers standing in the room should give you a
    hint),
    and the general shows his true colors, fighting you with three Soldier
    forces. A little more difficult, but after beating him a priest named
    Pu Jing will heal you for free.
    
      After this pass, you can either go to the castle on the right or
    continue.
    In the next pass is Hu Ban, who tells you to go rest in the inn. If you
    believe him, you will fight Wang Zhi and be torched 100 soldiers a turn.
    
    So, give Hu Ban the letter his father wrote instead. He will tell you
    to exit the village quickly. After you get out, go back in and see what
    would have happened if you didn't tell Hu Ban.
    
      Then you can go on north. However, for your own benefit, you can go
    check out the castle to the east.
    
    (MISSING STUFF, TO BE FILLED IN)

    -   WEAPON/ARMOR   -  MISC. ITEMS  -

    - Scale (Shield)   -               -
    ------------------------------------
    
      If you get nothing else, be sure to get the Copper Saber. It will help
    
    a LOT, especially in a few coming up battles. Also, try to get a
    moderately
    higher defense, for Guan Yu will be outnumbered in all the fights.
    
      Go on north to the last gate, guarded by Chin Chi and his three
    Soldier
    forces. He, again, shouldn't bee too hard. Then just get on the boat
    you see and you will be in Yuan Shao's domain, where Liu Bei is.
    
      After not a few steps, Xiahou Dun promptly shows up - he wants your
    head.
    One messenger will try to stop the fight, but Xiahou Dun continues.
    Then,
    Zhang Liao rides up and tells Xiahou Dun Cao Cao's words, and he finally
    
    lets you alone. Guan Yu feels he owes a lot to Cao Cao. (NOTE: If you
    haven't figured it out, this whole thing is probably a cunning plan made
    by
    Cao Cao himself)
    
      Going to the hut, the men tells you that bandits seized the empty
    camp and the empty castle you saw earlier. Hmm... who could they be?
    First,
    go to the castle, and you will see, of all people... Zhang Fei. It seems
    
    that Zhang Fei thinks you have betrayed the oath by joining Cao Cao, and
    is
    about to fight you to death when Cai Yang shows up. (NOTE: If you wish,
    you
    can go recruit Zhou Cang first, and then attack, making the battle a
    little
    easier. More information on this is in the next chapter.)
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: CAI YANG
    -------------------------
      Get ready for a battle with him and three Soldier forces. Although he
    is
    by himself, his attacking and defense are quite strong. Added to the
    fact
    that Guan Yu is by himself, nonetheless. Concentrate on attacking and
    healing when neccessary, and Cai Yang will be defeated.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -4. Cutting Down Cai Yang, the Older and Younger Brother Clear Their
    Doubts-
    -   Meeting at Old City, the Master and Subordinates Remeet Their
    Oath     -
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (NOTE: First line is self-explanatory. For the second, the generals in
    the
           game do not meet at Old City (well, not all of them), but it is
    that
           way in the book, so live with it. :) Also, so I won't get much
    email
           about this, yes, I know, the word "yi" can mean celebration,
    oath,
           honor, and many things, but I think that this definition gives a
           catchier phrase)
    
      Zhang Fei sees your fidelity and joins you, along with another of the
    five Tigers (Zhao Yun). He tells of how he gathered bandits and defeated
    
    the owner of the castle to settle down. Heal at the inn nearby. Now, go
    to
    the camp, where you will be confronted by Zhou Cang and two bandit
    forces.
    Shouldn't be too hard, now you have extra generals. After the battle,
    you
    can let Zhou Cang join - he is not equipped, however. So equip him with
    the
    set of equipment he brought. He will be the first general of yours with
    an
    axe.(NOTE: Zhao Yun rules! Check out his stats)
    
      Finally, the house which you previously found empty now contains the
    owner, Guan Ding. He will send his son Guan Ping to escort Liu Bei to
    rejoin Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, and Zhao Yun. Guan Yu's great journey ends
    here.
    
      Pondering with Chen Deng, Liu Bei, in Yuan Shao's estate wonders his
    next step. When Guan Ping comes to get him, Liu Bei decides to leave.
    Get
    Guan Ping some equipment, and talk to Yuan Shao. He thinks you will talk
    
    to Liu Biao about fighting Cao Cao, and agrees to let you out of
    the gate. But... Yuan Shao's generals Guo Tu and Tian Feng do not think
    you will get away that easily... and ambushes you as you step out of the
    
    door.
    
      Even if they did not have three Soldier forces, the battle would have
    been
    hard. Guo Tu is quite strong and Tien Feng is intelligent. I suggest
    hitting off Guo Tu first. Beware of tactics and heal if you may. After a
    
    bloody battle, go south into Guan Ding's hut.
    
      Meeting your brothers on the top floor, the three central characters
    finally see each other together. After getting Zhao Yun, Zhou Cang, Guan
    Ping
    and Chen Deng (who should be your strategist by now), Liu Bei's forces
    have
    much increased.
    
      Go back to Guan Ding. He will ask if Guan Yu wants to adopt Guan Ping.
    
    If Guan Yu does, Guan Ping's Strength and Agility will go up by 10 each.
    
    Guan Ping will be an big asset, for he has many armies and is very
    strong,
    if you didn't see that already. Now, Liu Bei and company will depart to
    Liu Biao, another of the Liu line, who lives in the peaceful and
    prosperous
    Jing Zhou.
    
    -------------------------------------------------
    -5. Cao Cao at Chang Ting Breaks Through Ben-chu-
    -   Xun-de at Jing Zhou Relies on Liu Biao      -
    -------------------------------------------------
    (NOTE: Chang Ting is a place in China (if you didn't figure that out),
           Ben-chu and Xun-de are "zhi", or a small name, sort of, for Yuan
           Shao and Liu Bei respectively.)
    
      Visiting your "cousin", it seems that Liu Biao would like you to help
    clean out some bandits that attacked the southeastern villages. You also
    
    hear about his sons Liu Qi and Liu Zong. First explore the castle,
    though.
    Jing Zhou is quite flourishing, and the shops go through big changes
    too... the Item shop STILL has the same items though.
    
    Jing Zhou

    ------------------------------------
    -   WEAPON/ARMOR   -  MISC. ITEMS  -
    ------------------------------------
    - Copper (Sword)   - Herbal Potion -
    - Copper (Spear)   - Revive Potion -
    - Copper (Saber)   - Smoke Bomb    -

    - Copper (Helmet)  -               -
    - Scale (Shield)   -               -
    ------------------------------------
    
      Abundance in Copper? Well, buy whatever you want here, and head east
    toward the bandit-inhibited villages.
    
      You will see three villages in a row. Each one has a fight and an Inn,
    
    leading you to the next fight. The first village has Huang Shao with
    three
    Bandit forces, the second village will challenge you with He Yi and four
    
    Bandit forces, while the third and last one has both Gong Du, Liu Bi,
    and
    three forces. They are in increasing difficulty, but not so hard that
    you
    would have to heal after each. In the villages you can hear about the
    Sleeping Dragon, a mysterious person of great knowledge that lives to
    the
    north, in a small estate named Long Zhong.
    
      There is a small hut to the west of the Jing Zhou castle, where Sima
    Hui
    lives. Go there, and Sima Hui will talk with you. He states that
    although
    you have able generals, you need a strategist. He says vaguely that if
    you
    get the Sleeping Dragon or the Pheonix Fledgling, you can bring back
    the Han dynasty! In the night, a conversation takes place, and Liu Bei
    overhears Zhuge Liang talking with Sima Hui. Waking up, Sima Hui informs
    
    you that Zhuge Liang is none except the great Sleeping Dragon himself,
    and
    you should go pay him a visit.
    
      Going to the place as Sima Hui said, it can be seen that this man has
    left with Cui Zhoping. But Zhuge Jun, his brother, is still there and
    tells
    you that they will eventually come back. Go back to Liu Biao. Who
    appears
    even sicker and  tells you to go to Xin Ye, a beginning castle in the
    north. Do as he says.
    
    Xin Ye
    ------
      Everything is under construction, so that is pretty good. Look around
    and then exit. A messenger will tell you of Liu Biao's increasing
    sickness.
    Go back to Jing Zhou and go into the palace. You will see Cai Mao
    cursing
    at his timing.
    
      Liu Biao wants Liu Qi to be his heir. However, his general
    Yi Ji tells you that Cai Mao wants Liu Zong to be heir, and is angry at
    this. Yi Ji fears foul play against you, and tell you to go west into
    a secret passage from Liu Biao's deathbed.
    
      A cave... a maze, nevertheless. Many stairs, some treasure... the only
    
    good part is three consecutive chests with a Copper sword, saber, and
    axe. Exit and find yourself by Xin Ye. Suddenly, Yi Ji informs
    you that Cao Cao's 100,000 men army is attacking this way! By now, Cao
    Cao
    has already defeated the numerically superior Yuan Shao, and obtained
    greater forces.
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: LU KUANG AND LU XIANG
    --------------------------------------
      Go to the forest, like Yi Ji said, and fight through a somewhat linear
    
    path. Fight Lu Kuang and Lu Xiang (quite hard) and exit. They are both
    good fighters, so use tactics on them and attack them as hard as you
    can.
    Remember the stones that block passage. You will need to come back
    later.
    
      Now, in Xin Ye, Zhuge Jun appears. He says his brother is finally back
    
    and you should pay him another visit. Go the same way, but this time,
    Zhuge Liang is sleeping. CHECK the floor in front of him and do NOT wake
    
    him up. He will wake up by himself and join you after a series of
    conversation. You now have the greatest strategist in Chinese history
    (well, one of the greatest, on the line with Sun Bin, Jiang Zhiliang,
    Zhang Liang, etc.)
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -6. The Millitary Advisor Uses Soldiers at Bo Wang Po to Burn the Enemy-
    
    -   Zhuge Liang Employs Fire in Xin Ye and Immolates the Opposition    -
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (NOTE: I have used the combination of two chapter names for this one and
    
           put them in a match form. The reason is that Zhuge Liang actually
    
           uses fire twice, but only once in the game. And the place (the
           forest) suggests Bo Wang Po, while the general (Cao Ren) suggests
    
           Xin Ye. )
    
      This part of the story starts off with a bang. Cao Cao's 100,000 men
    army has arrived! Zhuge Liang devises a strategy quickly and gives most
    of your generals orders. Only equipped with the bare meager, you will
    control him to go to the southwest forest again with Zhao Yun. Make him
    your strategist...
    
      A little into the forest, and the huge army of 100,000 Soldiers
    (actually,
    more like 5,000) appears, lead by Cao Ren. Accompanying him is Yu Jin
    and
    Li Dian for their second confrontation with you, and two Soldier forces.
    
    Cao Ren will be surprised at such a small force (in his heart) and
    starts
    a fight.
    
      A forest is the best place for fire. Right after the first round, Guan
    
    Yu leaps into the fray and lights up the forest, doing massive fire
    damage
    to all enemies. Now, Da Re can be used! In the second round Zhang Fei
    joins
    in, and later Guan Ping and Zhou Cang. Cao Cao's massive army will be
    almost literally transformed into ashes, proving Zhuge Liang's
    intellect.
    
      (NOTE: From this point on, general battles, like DoaE 1, can appear at
    
    any time)
    
      Right after a victory, Liu Biao's condition worsens even more. Going
    back
    to Jing Zhou castle, Liu Bao tries to give up his position to you, but
    Liu
    Bei, being like he is, refuses. Liu Biao dies in sorrow. Cai Mao isn't
    very
    impressed and insists that we should surrender to Cao Cao instead.
    
      Go back to Xin Ye, where you will be notified that Liu Qi asks for
    your
    presence. March to Xia Kou (the castle to the south) where Liu Qi
    resides.
    
    Xia Kou
    -------
      Another busy place, with many shops and people. The Armoury introduces
    
    a new shield also - Copper shield. At 1000 G, it is pretty expensive but
    
    offers good protection. The Item shop also has the Copper potion, a
    stronger
    version of the Herbal potion.

      However, you should go to the prince first. Liu Qi lies on the
    deathbed
    also, and looks very sick. He begs you to take the position of Jing
    Zhou's
    governor. Liu Bei thinks, and accepts. Thus, Liu Bei is finally now in
    posession of a new fiefdom. However, problems still exist...
    
      First, the Cai cousins had taken the two castles Jing Zhou and Xin Ye.
    
    They need to be cleaned out. Jing Zhou has Cai Zhong, Cai He, Huang Zhu,
    
    and Han sui guarding it. Although the forces seem difficult, the
    generals
    are all worthless. After a few rounds the tide will easily turn. After
    the
    battle, heal up, and prepare to retake Xin Ye.
    
      Xin Ye has Cai Xun (a different Cai), Jiao Rong, Zhang Nan, and Kuai
    Yue
    as defense. The latter battle is quite hard with the good balance of
    armies
    they have. Kuai Yue can be a pain, because he is good at tactics. I
    suggest
    leveling up a couple of levels before Xin Ye. After this battle, go into
    
    the castle at Xia Kai.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -7. Planning Tactics with Sun Quan, Ruses are Plotted Against Cao Cao-
    -   Receiving Magic from Lady Miko, Winds will be Set By Kong Ming   -
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    (NOTE: I made this myself, and I quite like it! The reason I made it
           personally was because there was no Lady Miko in the novel and
           because Zhuge Liang knew how to control the wind already! :)
           Zhuge Liang = Kong Ming, by the way )
    
      Cao Cao had the whole China under his palm, but here comes a man named
    
    Zhuge Liang who could match his intellect! With 100,000 men destroyed,
    the
    treacherous warlord ponders his next step, and thinks about a naval army
    
    attacking Wu (a newly-rose power in the southeast, lead by Sun Quan).
    
      It is time to seal an alliance between Wu and Liu Bei (not quite Shu
    yet).
    The emissary Lu Su tells you of the importance of this mission, and Liu
    Bei decides to do it. Lu Su will join you temporaily. I suggest putting
    him near the front because he can take many hits, and use tactics
    expertly
    at a 235 Intelligence rate.
    
      Go to the dock near the south, and enter the land of Wu. Go into
    Chaisang
    castle, where the ruler of Wu, Sun Quan, resides.
    
    Chaisang
    --------
      A busy castle with many men. The shops, again, varies... this time,
    the
    Armoury offers a new suit - Iron Armour that is a good deal for its
    money.
    Buy at least one here...

    -   WEAPON/ARMOR   -  MISC. ITEMS  -

    ------------------------------------
    
      In this town is an old man babbling about gunpowder. Remember who he
    is.
    Then, go into the palace where you will confront Zhou Yu, Zhang Zhao,
    and
    Lu Meng of Wu. Sun Quan sits on the throne and asks you for help. It
    seems
    that Cao Cao organized a huge fleet, and Cai Mao, the traiter of Liu
    Biao, is helping to train them! Zhou Yu says that with the right help,
    it
    is possible to defeat the less experienced troops of Cao Cao, but the
    wind
    is against them.
    
      In the town, picking up rumours will tell you that there are people in
    
    the east who might know about wind controlling, as somebody there could
    already control the wind. Going east, you will see a village. Although
    almost everybody scoffs at the idea of controlling wind, a few people
    will tell you about Lady Miko, a mysterious figure who resides on
    islands
    to the east.
    
      Return to the dock where you came from, and ride the boats to the
    east.
    (NOTE: Seems like Japan... a series of islands, Mt. Fuji, and someone
    named
    Miko.) You will enter a town with cherry trees (Japanese style) and
    humble
    huts. Inquiring the folk will tell you that Lady Miko has gone to
    Mt.Fugi,
    a mountain to the north.
    
      Taking a trip there, and you will find yourself on a mountain. Many
    items
    here, and the path is basically linear but winding and twisting. There
    are three "mountains" here and you will get across each one. Near the
    final mountain is your first "Tent", a very helpful item. Finally, go
    east over the long bridge.
    
      You see Lady Miko in the distance, and march towards her, but... Da Se
    
    (literally Big Serpent) blocks your path with four Snake forces. Their
    stats are in the General Stat's section as well.
    
      These are really a force to be reckoned with. With a speed of 200 and
    the
    snakes having speeds of 100, Da Se will strike fast and hard (strength
    210).
    Focus your attacks on this three-necked Cobra, and then defeat the
    snakes.
    It is not all that easy though, as you probably need to save often
    during
    this trek. If you are experienced enough, you will finally win this
    decisive battle.
    
      Lady Miko was on a pilgrimage, but the dastardly beast trapped her.
    She
    thanks you and gives Zhuge Liang a Wind Scroll, by which he could change
    
    the wind. I would have made her use the wind to blow the army back, but
    alas, you have to go all the way back to Sun Quan through the mountain.
    
      Planning to defeat Cai Mao now, the soldiers need to go to Xiang Yang
    back in Jing Zhou. Remember the stones which blocked the way? They can
    be
    blown up with gunpowder! Talk to the old man again.
    
      He needs Saltpeter and Deadwood. First, get the Deadwood. It is right
    in
    front of the tree near him! The Saltpeter is not easy to get, though, as
    
    you will need to travel to the cave in the east.
    
      The water cave is long and windy, but not too confusing. The Saltpeter
    
    will be in a treasure chest at the far right of the cave. Then go all
    the
    way back to Sun Quan's palace. (NOTE: Where are the gullwings? :) )
    
      Make the gunpowder by giving the ingredients to the old man. Then, go
    north into Jing Zhou again, and blow up the rocks which previously
    blocked
    your way. This opens up to Xiang Yang, where Cai Mao has taken over.
    Rush
    forward, and fight the traitor at this castle.
    
      Finally, a hard battle worthy of your steel, right? Cai Mao curses at
    your interference and comes to battle with Zhang Yun, Wen Pin, Lu Gong,
    and Wang Can. No Soldier forces here...
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: CAI MAO
    ------------------------
      Cai Mao is, obviously, the strongest here overall. His attacking and
    defense power have also been raised. Absolutely defeat this guy first
    using
    Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Guan Ping, and Zhao Yun while slowing down the
    enemies
    with tactics such as Yan Dun and Ce Jian using Lu Su. If you beat Cai
    Mao,
    then either concentrate on Wen Pin (strongest hitter) or Wang Can (the
    strategist). They will not be as hard as Cai Mao. Defeating the five
    generals, you have finally liberated Jing Zhou according to Liu Biao's
    wishes.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    -8. Pang Shi-yuan Cleverly Sets the Tactic Lian Huan  -
    -   Guan Yun-chang Honorably Frees the Culprit Cao Cao-
    -------------------------------------------------------
    (NOTE: Pang Shi-yuan and Guan Yun-chang are Pang Tong and Guan Yu,
           respectively. Lian Huan means "continuous" or "chained up"
           in Chinese. In here it was quite ironic, for the "chained up"
           part.)
    
    Xiang Yang
    ----------
      Liu Bei's army has defeated Cai Mao, who guarded Cao Cao's resupply
    point. This castle does not have any pedestrians walking around like
    usual (When two 5000~6000 men armies fight, the damage level gets pretty
    
    high). The shop holds quite interesting items, though.
    
    ------------------------------------
    -   WEAPON/ARMOR   -  MISC. ITEMS  -
    ------------------------------------
    - Iron (Sword)     - Copper Potion -
    - Iron (Spear)     - Revive Potion -
    - Iron (Saber)     - Smoke Bomb    -
    - Iron (Axe)       - Tent          -
    - Iron (Armour)    -               -
    - Copper (Shield)  -               -
    ------------------------------------
    
      However, walk into the castle. Although empty, the upper left corner
    holds a series of stairs... into Xiang Yang's weapon arsenal! Here, you
    will find eight chests. In clockwise order from the top left chest, the
    items are: Iron Sword, Iron Spear, Iron Saber, Iron Armour, Irom Helmet,
    
    Arrow Storm, Iron Shield, and Iron Axe. Take all of these and give them
    to respective people who needs them.
    
      Going to the west, there is a small cave. Nothing much there except
    some potions (including two Tactics Potions!). However, a very important
    
    item on the bottom green floor contains a Flame Armour, which provides
    60 points of Protection Points! There is also a general there you can't
    get past though. (NOTE: This is completely optional. You can get back
    here later anyway)
    
      Returning to the dock at Xia Kai and going to Sun Quan, talk to each
    of his generals there. Now having Cao Cao's Arrow Storm and being able
    to harness the wind, the next step is to chain Cao Cao's ships together
    for a fire tactic. Zhuge Liang thinks about this and decides to ask one
    of the Pang Clan, Pang Tong, for help (the Phoenix Fledging). Sun Quan
    suggests asking Sima Hui for the whereabouts of Pang Tong.
    
      Riding up to Jing Zhou, Sima Hui tells you that Pang Tong lives
    southeast of Chai Sang. So, go all the way back to Wu and follow the
    path southeast. There will be a small peninsula, go to the tip of
    it and you will reach a watery swamp.
    
      Using a boat, navigate through the swamp. It is not too difficult...
    the only treasure in here, by the way, is a Copper Shield. Going through
    
    the long swamp, fighting pirates and such, you reach the other end where
    
    a solitary hut resides. (How does he live here?) Going inside and
    talking
    to the legendary genius Pang Tong, he agrees to your plan.
    
      (NOTE: Where are the Gullwings?) You again, have to go all the way
    back
    through the watery forest-place. Going into Chai Sang for the final
    time,
    the master plan of the combined army is complete, as Sun Quan gets ready
    
    to let go his army.
    
      Putting Zhuge Liang into the lines by telling Lu Su to be tactician
    (This is VERY important!) Go to the docks one more time. You will sail
    into Cao Cao's massive (alas chained) army, and fight him. Cao Cao, Xu
    Zhu,
    Dian Wei, Zhang Liao, and Xu Huang will appear, as massive as ever. But,
    
    Zhuge Liang has something up his sleeve...
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: CAO CAO
    ------------------------
      Using the Wind Scroll in battle, the southeast wind started to blow.
    Sun Quan sends forth the fireboats and instantly immolates the huge
    navel
    army of Cao Cao. Then, the Arrow Storm of a million arrows will be sent
    to Cao Cao, penetrating through his army. Cao Cao escapes though, and
    the
    Liu/Sun army chases behind!
    
      Catching up to Cao Cao's ship, Sun Quan's naval assalt force goes for
    an all-out with what Cao Cao has left in his army. Tai Shi Chi, Zhou
    Tai,
    Gan Ning, Huang Gai, and Zhang Hong will give Cao Cao's remainants a
    guge
    beating, and Cao Cao escapes just with Zhang Liao.
    
      Ending up by the mountains, Cao Cao sighes and is glad that there is
    no
    ambush on him at this time... or was there? Zhao Yun jumps out of the
    forest and attacks Cao Cao and Zhang Liao. After one round, Cao Cao runs
    
    south, into a village where he remeets Xu Huang and Xu Zhu. However,
    Zhang Fei cuts them off and attacks them again. In two more rounds, Cao
    Cao managed to escape to near the Black Forest (Hua Rong Dao? Not here).
    
      But, Guan Yu appears at last to capture the tyrant. Using the fact
    that
    Guan Yu was treated well by him back then, when the three brothers
    separated, Cao Cao convinces Guan Yu to let him go. The man of honor,
    Guan Yu, gives this warlord another chance at life.
    
      After the great battle, Zhuge Liang is shocked to hear of Guan Yu's
    failure. Zhuge Liang wanted to execute him, but Liu Bei talks on Guan
    Yu's behalf and explains to Zhuge Liang the conditions of the time.
    Zhuge Liang sighs, for the great enemy has escaped. (NOTE: In the novel,
    
    it is quite clear that Zhuge Liang was not REALLY going to execute Guan
    Yu, and Zhuge Liang predicted that Lord Guan would free Cao Cao
    beforewards
    already)
    
      Soon, reports say that Cao Cao amassed another army and took over
    Jing Zhou and other castles. Zhou Yu of Wu, however, was marching around
    
    south Jing Zhou, and may eventually develop another threat. Liu Bei is
    forced to send out his powerful army yet again, to recontrol Jing Zhou.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -9. Eliminating Chen Jiao, Liu Bei Acquires Victory in Jing Zhou    -
    -   Taking out Cao Ren, Zhuge Liang Secures the Safety of Nan Jun   -
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
      (NOTE: I made this, and did not like it)
    
      After Lu Su left for Wu, Liu Bei's army will march north to Jing Zhou.
    
    (NOTE: Some guy in Xia Kou tells you that Chen Jiao is guarding Jing
    Zhou, but he gets 500 gold for this information...) Make sure you are
    well-equipped.
    
      At Jing Zhou, you will encounter the general Chen Jiao and four
    Soldier
    Forces. Being more of a tactician than a fighter, Chen Jiao can be
    easily
    defeated, provided that you trained well. However, do not be impulsive
    and go to Xiang Yang right away. Talking to the people reveals that Chen
    
    Jiao left the Tally Order, an item needed to get past the gates of Xiang
    
    Yang and Nan Jun, in the palace. Go to the throne and search in front of
    
    it, this will give you the tally. Now, go to Xin Ye.
    
      Yi Ji meets you at Xin Ye. This time, he will join you... he is very
    weak physically, but is quite intelligent and comes with a full pack of
    Copper equipment. After making a new addition to your army, go west to
    Xiang Yang through the forest again. (NOTE: This is also completely
    optional. You will have to get Yi Ji later though)
    
      Getting past the gates, Xiahou Dun is surprised at your arrival and
    attacks you. (NOTE: Without the Tally Order, Xiahou Dun meets you at the
    
    gates, making an insanely difficult battle) Even with four Soldier
    forces,
    he is not TOO much of a problem unless you are weak. He is quite strong
    and can hurt you a bit at the beginning, but after knocking him down
    with water tactics, you can mop up the remaining forces easily. Then
    enter
    Xiang Yang.
    
      The people tells you that the dock to the south is ready to operate to
    
    send you to southern Jing Zhou, where Yi Ling and Nan Jun is. Going on
    the
    ship, ride it there. After you land, go south for a while to reach Yi
    Ling.
    
      Again, the same thing happens. You get past the gate and fight the
    guardians Cao Ang and Niou Jin. (NOTE: Cao Ang was supposed to be dead.
    I mean, a LONG time ago, before Yuan Shu even got the royal stone!) Cao
    Ang is skilled in all aspects and Niou Jin is strong. This will be a
    quite
    difficult battle. I suggest putting Niou Jin off for a while using Yi
    Xin,
    (and if you trained insanely long and hard, Li Jian!) and pound Cao Ang
    with all you got. Then eliminate Niou Jin with tactics and the battle
    will
    be yours. (Again, three Soldier forces is really no help)
    
    Yi Ling
    -------
      This place do not seem busy at all. The shops are quite like usual...
    except for the fact that there is no Armoury, and there is no Tent in
    the
    item shop... what happened?
    
    -----------------
    -  MISC. ITEMS  -
    -----------------
    - Copper Potion -
    - Revive Potion -
    - Smoke Bomb    -
    -----------------
    
      Anyway, the people warn you that Nan Jun is very hard to defeat (and
    it
    is) and suggests that you get ready. The thing to do is to get equipped,
    
    and gain a level or two if you haven't already done so. I suggest
    training
    everyone to at least over 1,000, and preferably over 1,500 soldiers at
    this
    point.
    
      Going east, you finally meet Cao Ren and Cao Hong at the castle. Cao
    Ren
    is a good general in every aspect, and Cao Hong is quite strong. The
    real
    problem is Cao Ren here, and if he uses Li Jian, you know trouble is on
    your head. Cut him down as fast as possible, and then beat Cao Hong (it
    is
    harder than it sounds). If you can do this without getting hurt too
    much,
    consider yourself well-trained.
    
      Defeating the two generals, you can now enter Nan Jun. However, Cao
    Ren
    and Cao Hong runs toward Han castle to the north. What is unexpected,
    though, is Lu Bu showing up there with Li Jue, Guo Si, Zhang Ji, and Li
    Su
    taking the castle. They will easily defeat Cao Ren and Cao Hong and
    claim
    the castle...
    
    Nan Jun
    -------
      Again, the town is quite small. No Armoury, still no Tent, but a new
    Billeting place where you can "deposit" or "withdraw" generals. Also,
    the
    item shop introduces a new item: Steed, that when equipped, increases
    agility by 10!

    -----------------
    
      After healing up, go fight Lu Bu at Han castle. He will encounter you
    and do serious damage to you. After one round, Zhuge Liang realizes that
    
    it is impossible to win, and retreats.
    
      Back in Nan Jun, a child lets you see his master, who happens to be
    Pang Tong. He gives you a Brocade Sack and tells you to use the tactic
    inside it against Lu Bu. Zhuge Liang asks the strategist to join, but he
    
    refuses at this point.
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: LU BU
    ----------------------
      Going back to Han castle, use the Sack. Guan Yu will retreat and lure
    Lu Bu out the castle while the rest of the army marches in quickly. Lu
    Bu
    will, when forced to attack the castle from the outside, be weaker than
    he was. Guan Yu comes back from behind in the second round and will
    score
    critical hits every turn for the remainder of this battle. It is still
    quite hard, but it is possible to win.
    
      After the battle, Lu Bu curses at his defeat and retreats. You can now
    
    enter the Han castle.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
      (NOTE: I still don't like it. These parts get a little out of touch
             with the novel, so I couldn't find authentic matches...)
    
    Han
    ---
      Another bustling castle of Jingzhou with many people wandering around.
    
    Talk to them reveals that the guide to the East Cave is Yi Ji and he is
    in Xin Ye castle. Hopefully, you have him already in your party. This
    time,
    every item in the Armoury is Iron and the item shop introduces the Power
    
    Pill, which guarantees critical hits every time you use one.
    
    ------------------------------------
    -   WEAPON/ARMOR   -  MISC. ITEMS  -

    - Iron (Shield)    -               -
    ------------------------------------
    
      Going into the East Cave, you will see a medium-sized cavern
    illuminated
    with torches. There are quite a few chests around, and one contains a
    set
    of Steel Armour. The exit is to the east in this rectangular maze.
    
      After getting out, you see a hut. In the hut are the Ma brothers
    talked
    about in Han Castle, Ma Liang and Ma Su, able generals who agree to join
    you
    after you defeat the Cao forces in Ling Ling, Gui Yang, Wu Ling, and
    Chang
    Sha. The first castle, Ling Ling, is visible in the horizon.
    
      The gate before the castle is guarded by Xingdao Rong and Liu Yan,
    along
    with three Soldier forces. Xingdao Rong is quite a hard hitter, but not
    really on the intelligent side. I suggest using Yi Xin to put him
    temporalily out of the battle as you focus the fighting on Liu Yan.
    After
    dispatching these two generals, advance to the Castle itself to the
    south.
    
      Liu Du will come out, followed by Liu Yan, Xingdao Rong, and two
    Soldier
    forces to meet you. This battle can be difficult if not adequately
    treated.
    Again, it is a good idea to use Yi Xin on Xingdao Rong and focus on Liu
    Du, before taking out his subordinates. Ling Ling is officially taken
    back
    to Liu Bei.
    
    Ling Ling
    ---------
      Being a small castle, there is no armoury here. What's more, the Item
    shop is also bare-bones...

      Heal here at the Inn, and proceed south to the next castle of South
    Jing Zhou, Gui Yang. There is a village on the way also that will tell
    you of a few things.
    
      At Gui Yang Castle, you will go to battle with Bao Long and Chen Ying,
    
    two of Zhao Fan's generals. Both are quite strong, but the battle
    shouldn't
    be too hard, even with the three Soldier forces they brought.
    Concentrating
    on Bao Long first, you should easily win this battle.
    
      Entering the castle, the owner Zhao Fan invites Zhuge Liang, and only
    Zhuge Liang, into the palace. Zhuge Liang thinks it might be a trap, but
    
    decides to tentatively enter. It was of course... a trap, as Bao Long
    and
    Chen Ying leap out to ambush Zhuge Liang. However, a surprise source of
    help comes from behind... Lu Bu.
    
      It is a battle between Zhuge Liang and Lu Bu versus Zhao Fan, Bao
    Long,
    and Chen Ying. Lu Bu is very strong in this battle, as he can take out
    any
    general with one hit. After three rounds, you win, and the rest of Liu
    Bei's
    army talks with Zhuge Liang about Lu Bu's appearance.
    
      It seems that Lu Bu has turned to the good side, and is willing to
    guard
    Gui Yang for you. Zhuge Liang agrees to this traitor's request. However,
    
    will this alliance be permanent?

      The next castle, Wu Ling, is located at the west. There is also a
    village
    on the way that supplies some gossip about the castle. You will learn
    that
    the bridge of the castle was raised due to the castle's guardian, Jin
    Xuan. However, you also learn that Gong Zhi of Wu Ling has mixed
    thoughts,
    and is currently in a peninsula to the west.
    
      Going into the tip of the peninsula, a short trip through the forest
    brings you to Gong Zhi, who tells you of his thoughts. He says that you
    will
    fight Jin Xuan outside of Wu Ling, and departs.
    
      Going into Wu Ling, fight Jin Xuan and his four Soldier forces at the
    castle field. He should be very easy for you. When he tries to retreat
    after the battle, Gong Zhi refuses to let him in, and in the name of the
    
    Han Dynasty, shoots Jin Xuan.
    
      (NOTE: There is a Steel Spear hidden in the northwest group of trees
    in
    the field of Wu Ling, surrounded on three sides by trees)
    
    Wu Ling
    -------
      A relatively bigger castle than the last two, the Power Pill is back
    for
    sale in this castle, and Thunder Tridents are sold here (from the SWORD
    class). Also, various types of Steel weapons are sold here too, so stock
    
    up on the supplies... you will definately need it.

      Journeying to the last castle, Chang Sha, you encounter another
    village
    with more gossip about this castle and its powerful generals. The castle
    
    is in sight, and an old general, Huang Zhong, is guarding it.
    
      Guan Yu leaps forward, and asks this old man to a man-to-man duel.
    The two will both have 100 Soldiers, and the only command available is
    "fight". After a few rounds, Huang Zhong praises Guan Yu's fighting
    skill,
    and joins his companions inside the castle.
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: HAN XUAN
    -------------------------
      Attacking the castle, you will meet the hardest battle in the game up
    to this point. Han Xuan, Huang Zhong, Wei Yan, Han Hao, and Yang Ling
    fills the ranks, with no space (or use) for Soldier forces. Reporting on
    
    the generals will make you gasp... for aside from the fact that most of
    the generals have over 3000 soldiers, Huang Zhong, the old man Guan Yu
    encountered, has a Strength of 220, Intelligence of 175 and Agility of
    150.
    Furthermore, the axe-wielding Wei Yan has a stunning Strength on the 240
    
    mark. For those who have played Destiny of an Emperor I, the difficulty
    of
    this battle is comparable to the battle against Yuan Shao.
    
      The final fight is a very easily lost one if you are not trained. My
    strategy is to take out Huang Zhong before anybody else, for he is a
    fast
    striker, hits hard (twice, because of his bow), and is quite resistant
    to
    tactics. Wei Yan is also to be feared, able to do around 500~600 damage
    a turn with the mighty swipe of the axe. Wei Yan's low intellect allows
    you
    to keep him at bay with Yi Xin (a very useful tactic) while everyone
    gangs
    up on Huang Zhong. If you defeat Huang Zhong, consider the battle 33%
    over.
    
      The second step is Wei Yan. Defeating him is easier than Huang Zhong,
    but be ware of the flanking attacks of Han Xuan and Han Hao, while you
    use
    tactics to beat this general. After vanquishing Wei Yan, clean up the
    battle
    by clashing with the remaining three generals.
    
      Finally, south Jing Zhou is secured.

      The Chang Sha castle is quite a sight. It has the standard Armoury and
    
    Item shops, as well as the Billeting place and Headquarters.

    ------------------------------------
    
      Talking to the people, you will learn that Huang Zhong is a very able
    general at his old age. Also, Wei Yan can be recruited near the front
    gate.
    Entering Huang Zhong's house, he well talk for a while, then conceding
    to
    join your army if you find the Youyuu Bow.
    
      (NOTE: Able generals are flocking up here. You can get rid of
    "disposible"
    generals such as Zhou Cang or Yi Ji to make room. Guan Ping is a hard
    choice
    to make here, but do as you desire).
    
      Going west into a cave, you will find many treasures in it. Go in and
    take the first path to the south and climb the stairs. On the other side
    
    you can get three useful items: a Thunder Trident, Copper Potion, and
    some
    gold. Climb back to the T-intersection and go left. When the next inter-
    
    section appears, going south, southwest and northwest will give you a
    chest
    of gold, a Copper Potion, and a Copper Bow respectively. Going north
    will
    lead to a stairway to the top floor. Now you can either go east and get
    an
    Iron Helmet or go south, east, north and take the Youyuu Bow from a
    chest
    on the other side of the stairway. Finally, go back to Chang Sha.
    
      Seeing the bow, Huang Zhong will perform a funeral to Han Xuan (NOTE:
    Although it is interesting how you can still see Han Xuan in field
    battles)
    and will then join you. Put the good fighter in the lines with a Steel
    Bow
    and talk to the townfolk. They suggest going back to Ma Liang's house.
    
      The servants saying "Quickly!" should give you a clue that something
    has
    gone wrong. Ma Liang informs you afterwards that Lu Bu, the notorious
    general
    infamous for betraying his master, has rebeled against you in Gui Ling
    castle.
    March toward the castle, and prepare for a battle.
    
      Lu Bu meets you at the gates, spouting his ambition of taking over
    China.
    With him are Zhang Ji and three Soldier forces. If you know Yi Xin, the
    battle should be easy. Yi Xin away at Lu Bu and strike him as hard as
    you
    can. After defeating him enter the castle and rest up.
    
      The poeple at the castle says that Lu Bu fled to Ling Ling and has
    gotten
    generals there to help him. Going there, you will meet Lu Bu, Xingdao
    Rong,
    Liu Yan, Yang Ling, and a Soldier Force at the pass. A little harder,
    but
    taking out Xingdao Rong and Xingdao Rong should be the first priority.
    After
    defeating Lu Bu, head for the castle for the final showdown.
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: LU BU
    ----------------------
      Lu Bu meets you again, this time with Li Jue, Guo Si, Zhang Ji, and Li
    Su,
    his suboordinates. The battle is quite difficult. There are quite a
    number
    of hard hitters in the group. Immobilize them with Yi Xin, or Li Jian if
    
    you learned it, and pound away with tactics, formations, and attacks. Lu
    Bu
    should be your first concern, but afterwards it becomes easy. Lu Bu dies
    at
    the end of the battle, and his chronicle closes, "like a leaf in the
    wind".

    should pay them a visit. Their servants say that the two have gone to
    Xin
    Ye to visit Liu Bei, so go all the way back to Xin Ye, and...
    
    Xin Ye
    ------
      As you enter, a breathtaking view appears. Could this be Xin Ye? The
    little run down town that was torn by turmoil? Well it WAS... but now it
    
    is a lot bigger! Chen Deng will join you now after completing his task,
    but
    he is really not up to par with the rest, unfortunately.

    must-buy also, to add to defense. Now, visit the brand-new castle. Liu
    Bei
    will be in there with the Ma Brothers, who procedes to thank you for
    settling Jing Zhou and joins. Zhuge Liang leaves the party at the moment
    
    for planning and other things, and entrusts his hopes to you. Ma Liang
    and
    Ma Su, meanwhile, are both good generals. Ma Su also comes with Zhuge
    Liang's previous equipment. I suggest putting them in your party and Ma
    Liang as the strategist.
    
      A messanger calls and asks that you visit Sima Hui. So why not? Going
    there reveals that something is up with Pang Tong in Xiang Yang, so go
    there
    now. Sima Hui also gives you a bottle of Sake, Pang Tong's favorite
    drink.
    
      Visiting Xiang Yang, many people will tell you about the bandit Liao
    Hua
    taking their women away, including one's mother. Someone tells you that
    the bandits are in a northwestern forest, and takes your Sake as well.
    He
    says Pang Tong will join you after you beat them. So head northwest to
    the
    forest now.
    
      In the forest, if you take the first east branch you will find a chest
    
    with gold in a dead end. Going forward, you will find yourself at the
    south-
    west corner of a rectangular lake. At the southeast corner is a Copper
    Potion, northeast, a chest of gold, and northwest, a Revive Potion and a
    
    path leading northeast. The path takes you to the camp of Liao Hua,
    where
    the captured women are kept.
    
      The bandit faces you with four other Bandit Forces. This battle is
    relatively easy considering only Liao Hua is a real threat. He hits
    hard,
    but there are ways of preventing that. A fast and easy way to beat this
    is
    to use Li Jian on him first turn. The rest, as they say, is history. :)
    
      Liao Hua pleads you to let him join at the end of the battle, so let
    him.
    Another ally in the great army of Liu Bei. Going back to Xiang Yang, the
    
    Young Phoenix, Pang Tong, will finally join you in your cause. Make him
    your strategist if neccessary, as he is better than Ma Liang in EVERY
    single
    way.

    Ren       -
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
      A wounded man was found in front of Xin Ye castle. After taking care
    of
    him, Liu Bei finds that the man was Zhang Song, from Shu. Cao Cao was
    after
    him for some reason, and the Hanzhong army was attacking Shu. His plan
    is
    to let Liu Bei take Shu instead of its evil ruler, Liu Zhang (NOTE:
    Well, in
    the novel he wasn't evil, just weak) by telling Liu Bei to pretend to
    help
    Liu Zhang repel the Hanzhong army, and then attack. Liu Bei agrees to
    this,
    although hesitant (NOTE: He was a LOT more hesistant in the novel). Now,
    the
    only problem left is the lack of a map. Zhang Song chuckles and sas that
    he
    does have one... in the cave northwest of Xiang Yang.
    
      After receiving the Third Letter, go to the cave. On the third floor,
    Meng
    Da is blocking the entrance to a small room. Using the Letter on him
    will
    cause him to let you through and get the Task Map in the chest. Then,
    Meng
    Da will join you. He is quite a disposible general though.
    
      Returning to Liu Bei, Zhuge Liang offers the following tactic: Pang
    Tong
    will lead the force with Zhang Fei at the van, while Zhao Yun and Guan
    Yu
    are needed to take care of the not-quite-completely-settled Jing Zhou.
    Then,
    you should get three more generals from Billeting to complete the army.
    Armed with the new Shu Map, you should be ready now.
    
      (MISSING STUFF TO BE FILLED IN) (Zhang Lu? What is HE doing here?)
    
      Going southwest to the Xiang Yang harbor, you will see the previous
    messanger, Fa Zheng who offers to join your army. Let him join, then
    take
    the boat to Shu.
    
    Fushui
    ------
      The first castle you will see is the Fushui castle, where Liu Zhang
    resides. Men talk about Ma Chao, a person in the Hanzhong army who is
    very
    strong, and is the son of Ma Teng, the man Cao Cao murdered at the
    beginning
    of the game. A person says something about "3 times through the 3rd gate
    
    in the east and 4 times through the 3rd gate to the west", and someone
    else
    talks about Li Qi, a friend of Ma Teng and a wise sage.

    - Steel (Shield)   -               -
    ------------------------------------
    
      Going north and then east, you will find Li Qi's cottage where you
    will
    meet Li Qi. After seeing the Shu Map, he marks the spot of Emperor
    Jing's
    tomb, where the Blood Seal of Liu Bei, Ma Teng, Dong Cheng, and others
    are kept. He bids you good luck also.
    
      Using the map, go north, and find the clearing in the forest. CHECK
    the
    ground, and you will enter the Tomb of the Emperor. Taken straight off
    of
    a talk with Wildbill: "Hahaha! It is a-maze-ing.". Well, this is the
    longest
    dungeon/maze in the whole game. It has three levels (and too many items
    to
    list). On the first level, make sure to go left and get the Dragon Sword
    
    sitting on a pedestral. It has awesome attack power. On the second
    level,
    follow the guy's advice you heard in Fu Shui (even I forgot how I got
    through), or the walls will close and you have to start over. Pick up a
    Flame Armor there also. Finally, on the third level, is the Blood Seal
    on
    another pedestral. This sounds fast and easy, but I assure you it is
    not.
    
      Finishing this maze, go outside and talk to Li Qi. He will give the
    Seal
    to Ma Chao. Then, he will ask you to go to Xiameng Citadel. Heal up, and
    
    go north to the Citadel. Ma Chao will face you there. With him is Ma Dai
    and
    three Outlaw Forces. They are both incredibly strong and can do much
    damage
    every hit. Two things: Li Jian; Luo Shi. That should be enough help for
    you.
    
      After beating him Ma Chao will ask you to join. Now, you can head
    north
    to Yangping Citadel, and face a big army there of Yang Ang, Yang Ren,
    Yang
    Ping, Cheng Yin, and a Outlaw Force. The battle will be quite difficult
    due
    to the overall ability of every general there. Again, Li Jian and Luo
    Shi
    are very useful tactics here.
    
      Beating them, you can head north for Hanzhong now. You will have to go
    
    through Plank Way though...
    
      Plank Way is reminescent of Mount Fuji. There are easy to find
    treasures
    here consisting of a Silver Potion, a Tent, and two chests of gold.
    There
    is also a Dragon Sword somewhere! The path is quite short. Afterwards,
    you
    come to Nanzheng Citadel. You will meet Yang Bai, Pang De, Li Zhang,
    Cheng
    Yi, and an Outlaw Force here.
    
      Pang De is really a pain. He can do >1000 damage to you if you are not
    
    careful. Or you can Li Jian him and watch the fun. Considering all the
    generals in this battle are quite non-intelligent, tactics will be a
    great
    help here.
    
      Going into the Citadel, you will meet Wang Ping in one of the houses.
    He
    says that Yang Song, a general of Zhang Lu loves gold, and asks for
    10000
    for bribery uses. Letting him bribe Yang Song, you can go into the
    Hanzhong
    Castle up north. Zhang Lu kills Yang Song for betraying him, and fights
    you.
    
      With Zhang Lu are Zhang Wei, Zhang Heng, Hou Cheng, and Yan Pu. This
    is
    quite a large battle, and a hard one at that. The first four generals
    all
    have strength 170 or higher, and they are not as stupid as the last
    battle's
    generals. They will use tactics, and can become hard. To beat them, you
    must
    be prepared with tactics of your own, and maybe Ji Mian. I suggest using
    Li
    Jian on Hou Cheng and Zhang Heng, and concentrate on the rest.
    
      Finally beating Zhang Lu, you can enter the castle and look around.
    
    Han Zhong
    ---------
      People will thank you for what you did. There is no armory here, and
    you
    will see a Headquarters and a Billeting place. Get prepared, and exit.

      Yang Huai will meet you outside and give you gold. He will ask you to
    attack Fushui, and leaves. Going back to Fushui, you realize that your
    plan
    was found, and Liu Zhang is safe in Chengdu. Yang Huai faces you with
    Gao
    Pei, Wu Lan, and two Outlaw Forces.
    
      Wu Lan is a really hard hitter, so either Li Jian him or beat him
    first.
    Yang Huai is the next problem. But after the last battle, these are all
    comparatively easy. So defeat them and enter Fushui. Wu Lan will ask you
    
    to let him join here, so let him. Then, prepare your army and go north
    to
    the previously empty citadel.
    
      Leng Bao, Deng Xian, and Zhang Su meets you there for a battle. You
    will
    be surprised and take a few hits. But the rest is easy. You will find
    that
    you won't be able to continue because of the water though. Remember a
    hut
    on the way here? Inside is Psng Yi, who will give you a Bronze Key.
    Using
    this key on the locked door will let you in to a control room. After
    blocking the water, you can continue north and west. Going south, into a
    
    big forest, you will sense something is fishy here, since the forest
    gets
    very narrow.
    
      The suspicions prove correct as Zhang Ren jumps our and ambushes you.
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: ZHANG REN
    ---------------------------
      Zhang Ren meets you with Liu Kui, Liu Ba, and Liu Xun. How did this
    happen? After one round where it is virtually impossible to do good
    damage
    to them, Liu Bei's army will be torn up. But what is worse is... Pang
    Tong
    gets hit by a stray arrow, and dies. Alas... life is short.
    
      Barely escaping, the troop retreats to Fushui... but it is too late!
    Zhang Ren retook Fushui and attacks you again with Li Yan, Huang Quan,
    Wang
    Lei, and an Outlaw Force. What could be worse? They have full troops,
    you do
    not. They have five armies, you have four. And you lack the strategic
    ability of Pang Tong. The situation looks amazingly grim.
    
      However, after one round that seems to take forever, a huge fire
    erupts
    and does massive damage to each of the opponent's armies! Zhuge Liang
    has
    come to reinforce you! Shocked at the death of Pang Tong, he fills your
    ranks and fights with you against the enemy. Every turn the opponent
    will
    be burned more by the fire, and you should be able to win this fight by
    a
    slight margin.

      Healing the broken army at Fushui, Zhuge Liang joins you along with
    Zhao
    Yun and Guan Yu, receiving again a 7-army formation. Now, since the path
    
    way was blocked, Zhuge Liang prepares to attack Ba Castle. Head on to
    the
    boat, and sail there.
    
      Huo Jun, Yan Yan, Dong He, and two Outlaw Forces meets you at Ba
    Castle.
    Yan Yan is dangerous. Do not let him hit you. So keep him at bay
    somehow,
    or use Da Re / Tou Shi on him to beat him. After they are beaten, Yan
    Yan
    asks to be recruited (in the castle), so let him.

      There is a Gym here. With it is a Headquarters as well. People talk

      Go to Ba Citadel in the west. It is guarded by Liu Ba, Fei Guan, Fei
    Shi,
    and two Outlaw Forces. However, after one round, they retreat. Hmm...
    Now,
    do not move at all, and you will see a Soldier unit (or is it Wang
    Ping?)
    rush in. Then, go in the citadel. The Soldier/Wang Ping will ask you
    what
    cause is Liu Bei fighting for. If you say Liu Bei stands for justice, he
    
    will tell you that he was supposed to burn the place trapping you. Then,
    
    as you leave, you will fight the Liu Ba army again. If you did not wait
    for
    the Soldier/Wang Ping to go in the pass, you would have been trapped in
    fire
    that would have dealt much damage to you each turn.
    
      Now, you will come to a small village. If you go forward to the
    castle,
    you will see that the arrows make it hard to attack. The villagers tell
    you
    that the provisions of the Liu Zhang army are at North Mountain. The
    shop
    also has:

    Armor, an Ice Spear, and a Flame Shield as well as one or two chests of
    gold. Going through, you will find the secret camp on the top of the
    mountain guarded by Wang Kang, Lu Kai, and three Outlaw Forces. Beating
    them
    should be a breeze. Finally, go back to the village, heal up, and go to
    the castle.
    
      The castle is guarded by Lei Tong, Wang Kang, Lu Kai, Deng Xian, and
    an
    Outlaw Force. Lei Tong can be a problem. Take him out or use Li Jian on
    him.
    The others are quite easy. AFter beating them, enter the castle.

      Lei Tong will ask to join you here. Let him. You will also hear of
    someone called Jiang Wan.
    
      Go north, and you will see the Jiang Manor where Jiang Wan resides.
    There
    is an Inn and a Billeting place there. It seems that Jiang Wan would
    join
    you, but his mother is kidnapped and held on a mountain to the west.
    
      Go west through the cave. On the first floor is a chest of gold. On
    the
    second is a Silver Potion and a Power Pill, get them. Finally, back on
    the
    first floor there is an Ice Spear to the east. The cave is very short.
    When you exit you will reach a villa.
    
      In there is Gao Pei and four Outlaw Forces holding Jiang Wei's mother.
    He
    is very easy to beat. Beat him, and talk to Jiang Wei's mother. You will
    
    return to the manor and Jiang Wei will join you. He tells you to put him
    on
    the front line, as he has a ruse for the castle.
    
      Go to Yinping with Jiang Wan at the lead. He will say that your army
    is
    a reinforcement for the castle. Dong He will believe you and open the
    gates.
    Storm the castle, and Dong He will fight you with Li Yan, Wu Yi, Zhang
    Su,
    and an Outlaw Force. This battle is actually very difficult since both
    Li
    Yan and Wu Yi are very powerful. Use tactics on them, and watch out for
    tactics of Dong He and Zhang Su.
    
    Yinping
    -------
      In here, you will see a Billeting Shop and a Headquarters for
    preparation.
    There is also a Gym that costs 30000 gold to train. People speak of
    Zhang
    Ren guarding Mianzhu Citadel. They say that a trader, Zi Xu, at the
    North
    Cave has TNT that might help you. So go there.

      In the cave, Zi Xu says to find a wood pile in the pass and use the
    TNT
    there for a surprise attack. On the first level of the cave are two
    chests
    of gold and a Steel Helm. On the second level there are many pathes. In
    the
    south is another Steel Helm, in the southeast is a Pious Scroll, in the
    northeast is a QingLong Saber, in the northwest is a Silver Potion, and
    finally in the southwest is the TNT. Get these, and go to Mianzhu from
    the
    north.
    
      If you talk to any of the soldiers, they will be surprised and you can
    
    fight them, 5 armies at a time. But, go to the woodpile eventually and
    use
    the TNT in the small niche there. The place will go up in fire and you
    will
    find Zhang Ren, Liu Kui, Liu Xun, Liu Ba and Lu Kai, starting a fight.
    Every
    turn they will be burned by massive fire, so this will be an easy
    battle.
    
      After you win, the five will flee to Longyou Castle in the north.
    Pursue
    them! At the castle, you will fight the five generals again. This is a
    very
    difficult battle, and the most dangerous of the generals are Zhang Ren
    and
    Liu Ba. Focus on Liu Ba and try to somehow neutralize Zhang Ren.
    
    Longyou
    -------
      Longyou is not far from Chengdu now. Take a rest, and prepare for the
    last
    battle of Shu. There is a Headquarters here and a Billeting place also.

      Going north, west, and south, you will see Zhang Ren, by himself and
    desperate for Shu, across the bridge. If you challenge him, he will
    fight
    your lead general one-on-one, in a battle similar to the Guan Yu - Huang
    
    Zhong battle. If you beat him, he will sigh over the fate of Shu, and
    die.
    There ends one of the most loyal generals of Liu Zhang, dropping as a
    feather in a pond.
    
      Finally, you approach Chengdu in the south, for the:
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: LIU ZHANG
    --------------------------
      Liu Zhang meets you at the gates with Liu Xun, Huang Quan, Liu Ba, and
    
    Wang Lei. The battle music for this battle is also different. Liu Xun is
    the
    strongest fighter here, so you can use Li Fan or Ji Lian on him and turn
    the
    battle to your advantage. However, the other four generals are all
    fairly
    good at tactics, Liu Ba being the most dangerous. And at this stage of
    the
    game, tactics are very powerful. So beware of Ji Mian and such and
    dispose
    of Liu Ba first, then work your way up and take out all except Liu Xun,
    and
    finally focusing on him. IF you win, Shu will finally be settled.

    seems

      All of the weapons with attack power 120 are here, as well as the new
    Steel Helm. The Billeting place and the Headquarters are also here, as
    well
    as a Gym that costs 40000 to train.
    
      However, in spite of all of the peacefulness, Liu Bei tells you that
    Cao
    Cao just took Hanzhong castle! The rocks that were blocking the way are
    now
    gone, and you can go there now. So, get your equipment, and go.
    
      At Yangping, you will fight first Xiahou Shang, Han Hao, Jin Hui, Qui
    Ji,
    and an Outlaw Force. Then, at Nanzheng, Zhang Yi, Wang Bi, Wei Huang, Mu
    
    Shun, and an Outlaw Force will meet you. Both of these battles are quite
    
    easy, and the only generals to watch in each case are the lead ones.
    Since
    you have had easier battles then this, you should be able to win these.
    
      The battle at Hanzhong though, is not so easy... you will face Cao
    Cao's
    trustworthy general Xiahou Yuan, and Du Xi, Li Tong, Ma Yan, and Yang
    Xiu.
    Every stat of every general is above 100 with Xiahou Yuan's 215
    strength,
    except for Ma Yan's 85 agility, and two of Yang Xiu's stats. But Yang
    Xiu
    easily makes up for that with a 225 intelligence, and you will think
    twice
    when An Sha comes into play (Oh yes, tactics REALLY become powerful
    now).
    I can't say much about this battle besides: Get rid of Yang Xiu and then
    
    Xiahou Yuan. FAST. Yang Xiu is relentless with tactics, especially An
    Sha,
    while Xiahou Yuan is just good with anything, and takes off more than
    1000
    soldiers a hit.
    
      Now, take a rest in Hanzhong and wait for Liu Bei to come. When he
    does,
    he thanks you for the job well done, but then a messanger flies in with
    news
    that Cao Cao is acting as if he were the emperor! This act of treason
    must
    be stopped at once! Liu Bei will ask Zhuge Liang to take the battle to
    Wei,
    Cao Cao's domain, but Zhuge Liang says something else is in order
    first...
    
      Shocked at hearing that he must also declare to be the emperor, Liu
    Bei
    initially refuses. But Zhuge Liang explains that it takes the
    righeousness
    of a true emperor to defeat a false one, and that Liu Bei, and not
    anyone
    else, deserves to be the emperor because of his blood line. Liu Bei
    finally
    accepts, and now declares himself the emperor of Han.
    
    -
    -
    -
    -
    
      Now, Zhuge Liang must amass a huge army to enter Wei, leaving Liu
    Bei's
    domain with few soldiers. The solution of this is to let Guan Yu and
    Zhang
    Fei, the most trustworthy generals, go guard Chengdu and Xinye, the key
    castles, respectively. At the gate of the palace, however, Guan Xing and
    
    Zhang Bao, the sons of Guan Yu and Zhang Fei, will ask to join taking
    their
    fathers' equipment. Both are strong fighters, albeit not as good as
    their
    fathers.
    
      Now, the rocks to the east are cleared. You can now head east into
    Wei.
    The first citadel you will come to is guarded by Xiahou Mao, a son of
    Xiahou Yuan. With him comes Mao Jie, Liu Ye, Zhu Guang, and an Outlaw
    Army.
    This battle should be very easy, just concentrate tactics on all the
    generals. Liu Ye is probably the biggest threat here, which is not
    saying
    much.
    
      Bursting through the citadel, the castle is guarded by Cao Xiu, Lu
    Zheng, Wang Kuang, Fu Gan, and an Outlaw Army. This is definately harder
    
    than the most, with Cao Xiu being the most threatening. Defeat him first
    
    with powerful attacks and tactics while keeping the rest at bay.
    
    Nan'an
    ------
      It seems that the closest castles are Anding to the east and Tianshui
    to
    the northeast.

      Pick up whatever you like, and talk to the townsfolk. You will gather
    that
    a famous doctor Hua Tuo lives here and a powerful general named Jiang
    Wei
    lives in Tianshui, with his mother in Anding. Hua Tuo, by the way, will
    heal you for free.
    
      Anding is guarded by Cao Chun, Heng Huan, Jiangy Qui, Lu Qiang, and an
    
    Outlaw Army, all brutes and easy to defeat. But Tianshui is guarded by
    Xiahou Mao, Jiang Wei, Xiahou De, Chen Xi, and Gao Shun, all powerful
    fighters and Jiang Wei with all stats above 200, whose tactic will get
    you
    the moment you attack the castle, causing you to lose miserably.
    
      So go to Anding first. In there, people will talk about many things
    you
    might need to know.
    
    Anding
    ------
      You can gather that there is yet another famous doctor named Ji Ping.
    Jiang Wei's mother is ill and the medicine is controlled by Cao Cao.
    However
    this medicine is probably fake!

      There is a Gym costing 50000 gold here, as well as a Billeting Place
    and
    a Headquarters. Jiang Wei's mother is also here...
    
      Attacking Tianshui, like I said, you will lose miserably. Then, Ji
    Ping
    receives you and tell you that Hua Tuo can help Jiang Wei's mother, but
    Cao
    Cao has guarded his home. He will give you a Intro Letter.
    
      Go back to Nan'an. Hua Tuo's home is guarded by Fu Wan and four Outlaw
    
    Forces. Defeat them easily and USE the Letter on Hua Tuo. He will go to
    Jiang Wei's mother, and cure her. She will tell you that to tell her son
    
    she is fine.
    
      What a turn of events! Right when you exit Anding, Jiang Wei ambushes
    you
    on the spot. He refuses to listen to you and fights you. After you beat
    him,
    you will cut off his retreat. His mother runs out and explains the
    situation to her son. Jiang Wei realizes his original thoughts, and
    joins
    your side.
    
      Now, Zhuge Liang will leave and work on a new weapon for a moment.
    Organize your army (you may want Jiang Wei in your ranks, so use
    somebody
    like Ma Liang as tactician) and head for Tianshui.
    
      Tianshui is guarded by the original generals less Jiang Wei. It
    shouldn't
    be very difficult now, with a new powerful general at your side.
    
    Tianshui
    --------
      Zhuge Liang will come here, so take a rest and wait for him. Both the
    Billeting Place and the Headquarters is here also, as well as more
    equipment.

      North of the lonely tree in the east of the castle is a hidden Great
    Armor, the best armor in the game! Take it.
    
      Northeast of here is Chencang, and northwest is Beidi. However, Beidi
    is
    separated from here by water, and you will need a Ferry Ticket that
    needs
    to be gotten from Hao Zhao, in Chencang. So go there first. Besides,
    rumors
    say that there are powerful weapons there.
    
      Hao Zhao guards Chen Cang with Hua Xin, Yang Xiu, Ma Wan, and Liang
    Xing.
    Hua Xin and Hao Zhao are both tough enemies here, but it is better to
    dispose of Hua Xin first. Then, try to beat Hao Zhao somehow with
    tactics
    and attacks. He is very dangerous though and can do much damage, so
    prepare
    for some healing.

      With just an Item Shop, the place actually has very good stuff...

      Go in the upperwest house. There are six chests. Starting from the
    lower
    right chest, in clockwise order are: a Great Armor, a Double Axe, a Wind
    
    Helm, a Thunder Shield, a Power Spear, and a Ticket respectively! Give
    these
    awesome equipment to your generals and head west.
    
      Shen Pei guards the boat. If you give him the Ticket, he will say they
    
    shut down because of the invaders... namely, you! He battles you with
    four
    Outlaw Armies, but it shouldn't be hard at all. Using the boat and
    sailing
    north, you will come to the narrow forest path that you heard about.
    Beidi
    Citadel is north.
    
      Guarded by Cao Zhen, the Commander of Wei, his Head Tactician Wang
    Lang,
    and two generals Zhang He and Chen Yi with an Outlaw Army, the battle is
    
    actually quite hard. Zhang He is the biggest threat as he is immensely
    powerful and can take out many troops each hit. Defeat him first, then
    mop
    up the rest starting at Cao Zhen. Cao Zhen retreats after the long
    battle.
    
      Entering Beidi, you will receive an important warning: If a battle is
    too
    hard or impossible, run away. The people will tell you that Zhuge
    Liang's
    weapon is now finished and you should head back to Tianshui. People also
    
    wonder the whereabouts of Sima Yi who was supposed to be here.
    
      Going out, at the narrow path, you'll be ambushed by Zhang He, who
    states
    that Sima Yi's ruse has worked. He is impossible to defeat, so run! But
    after another movement he leaps out again with Xu Huang. Escaping, the
    two
    will catch up with Sima Zhao coming. Dash away, but Sima Shi joins the
    generals! If you make it out here barely and hopes for a breath, you are
    
    wrong, because Sima Yi finally appears with the other four generals.
    
      Narrowly escaping and heading back to the boat, you should remember
    this
    Sima Yi. You'll meet him again...
    
      At Tianshui, talk to Zhuge Liang. He will send Jiang Wei to the
    Billeting
    Place to rest and join your army with his mighty new creation, the
    Crossbow.
    Let an intelligent general take this weapon into his inventory, and head
    
    back to Beidi. You might also want to retake Jiang Wei.
    
      Back to the boat, and to the other side of the lake. At the forest
    path
    you'll be ambushed again by Wang Lang and Zhang He with a three-Outlaw
    Army
    reinforcement. They can be defeated quite easily, if you dispatch Zhang
    He
    first with fire tactics or whatever. Then, at the gates of Beidi, you
    meet
    the same lineup as last time, lead by Cao Zhen.
    
      The battle should be just as easy as the last, so win it. Now, you
    must
    take the rugged Beiyuan pass into the deeper parts of Wei, where Cao Cao
    
    is stocking his weapons in Luo Castle.
    
      The walk is quite long. At the east is a Wind Helm on a cliff and a
    Water
    Scroll up. If you go up, to the east is a chest of gold. Up more is a
    Gold
    Potion. If you go really up though after backtracking, then you come to
    a
    long and high bridge. East ftom here, you'll see a long path going
    south.
    On the way is a Void Spear, and if you have reached the bottom, the exit
    
    is east. If you want to, going west instead from the bottom and then up
    can get you an Ice Bow.
    
      Now, you are in Xialuo Village. It seems that the water is quite good
    here
    and you could take some... if you had a container. You'll also hear Cao
    Cao is stockpiling gunpowder for some reason. Hmm... For now, just rest
    up
    and then go tackle Beiyuan Citadel to the north. You'll have to go to
    the
    cave to the east later, so remember that.
    
      At this difficult citadel is Cao Zhang and Cao Zhi, two of the best
    sons
    of Cao Cao, with Hou Cheng, Xun You, and an Outlaw Army. Cao Zhang and
    Hou Cheng are deadly fighters, and Cao Zhi and Xun You are devious
    strategisys. Beware of both, for both can use powerful tactics on you.
    You
    should use Li Fan or something similar on Cao Zhang, or just keep the
    fighters at bay with Ji Mian. But take out Cao Zhi and Xun You first
    ASAP.
    
      In the citadel, there is just a Headquarters for you to prepare
    everything
    for the huge upcoming battle. Are you ready? Rest up and go north to
    Luo.
    
      Quote Cao Cao: "There was once a time in which Liu Bei and I could
    talk...
    but that time has ended." Was he speaking with pride, or sorrow, or
    both?
    We would never know. But, the gigantic, unfinished fight is here. Cao
    Cao
    meets you with Xu Zhu, Dian Wei, Pang De, and Xun Yu. Xu Zhu, Dian Wei,
    and
    Pang De are all mighty warriors with huge strength ratings and Xun Yu's
    tactics is no pushover, being even better than his nephew, Xun You. Cao
    Cao
    himself is no wimp, having all attributes over 200! I suggest using
    someone
    besides Zhuge Liang as tactician and An Sha the three middle generals to
    
    oblivion with Zhuge Liang and Jiang Wei while pounding on Xun You as
    fast
    as possible. Xun Yu or Cao Cao will also harass you with Ji Mian at
    times,
    so be prepared with a Jie Ce. But, the battle will take long in any
    case.
    After the long fight, Cao Cao will retreat.
    
    Luo
    ---
      Cao Cao have put explosives in Shangfang Valley as the people says.
    What
    is he up to? But the important thing is that Cao Cao has left great
    weapons
    in the castle! Go to the Headquarters or Billeting later, get the
    equipment
    first! Nevermind the person that talks about an old man who sells tea
    here
    also, for now.

    -----------------
    
      Well, there are two houses side by side in the northern part of the
    huge castle. Let's try the left one, shall we? It also contains six
    chests.
    Starting from the bottom left, clockwise, are: A Dragon Spear, a Heaven
    Sword, a Halfmoon Bow, a Thunder Shield, a War Scroll, and a CunYu
    Saber.
    
      In the right house are: A Sky Helm, a Wind Helm, two Great Armors in a
    
    row, another Wind Helm, and a Treatise! Equipping the Treatise increases
    
    Intelligence by 20 points, up to 255! I would either let your tactician
    equip it (that is not Zhuge Liang, because Zhuge Liang can't use certain
    
    powerful tactics like An Sha) or let a warlike general equip it to
    lessen
    his chances of being fooled by a tactic.
    
      Talking with the people, you hear about the cave to the south with an
    ancient scroll within that could make the clouds burst, calling forth
    rain!
    It seems that someone like Zhuge Liang might be able to master this
    power,
    so why not go south and check it out?
    
      The cave is extremely big, but luckily it only has one level (well,
    sort
    of). Going a different path will get you a different item. In here,
    there
    is a Pious Scroll, a Guantlet (awesome item that when equipped gives 20
    extra Attack Power), a chest of gold and a Gold Potion in various
    places.
    But, there are two isolated chests on rocky "pedestrals" here. One has a
    
    Void Spear, and one has a Cloudburst Scroll.
    
      Putting Zhuge Liang in your battle group, head north. My favorite
    formation at this point is having Zhuge Liang and Jiang Wei in the first
    
    and fifth positions, with Ma Chao, Guan Xing, and Zhao Yun in the middle
    
    under the YuLin formation. This is beneficial because the awesome
    tacticians
    Zhuge Liang and Jiang Wei has more tactic power and the strong fighters
    in
    the middle gets higher power. Another plus is that the enemies' rate of
    using a successful tactic goes down, failing most dangerous ones like An
    
    Sha and so forth.
    
      At Qishan Citadel, you face off against Xun Yu and Pang De with their
    three-Outlaw Army reinforcement, desperately trying to hold you back.
    Defeat them (this will definately be easier than the last battle) and
    continue to Shangfang Valley, that is shaped like a gourd.
    
      Going almost through the place, you'll be ambushed for Cao Cao. He
    laughs
    and sends thousands of fire arrows to burn the valley and block your
    exit,
    trying to immolate your whole army to death. Then, he faces you with Xu
    Zhu, Dian Wei, Liu Ye, and Guo Jia. Now, let Zhuge Liang use the
    Cloudburst
    Scroll. The clouds will suddenly burst, and rain will wash away the
    great
    flames, spoiling Cao Cao's whole ruse. Now, angry at this, Cao Cao will
    make
    his last stand against you, by brute force.
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: CAO CAO
    ------------------------
      The cool theme that you heard when fighting Liu Zhang is here again.
    Again, take out Xu Zhu and Dian Wei with tactics like An Sha or Li Fan.
    Meanwhile, concentrate on Liu Ye and Guo Jia, both very dangerous due to
    
    their tactics. Wipe them out, and then hit Cao Cao head on with Power
    Pills
    to finish them off. The great battle ends here.
    
    -
    -
    -
    -
    
      Now, Liu Bei will go to Luo castle. So go there, rest at the Inn, and
    wait. Just as Liu Bei thanks you, a messanger yet arrives again. The
    problem now is that Cao Cao's elder son Cao Pi is massing a great army
    in
    Sili, south of Shangfang Valley. There seems to be invaders at Hanzhong
    as
    well, exposing the southern defense. To reply to this, it is vital that
    Guan Xing be sent to protect Hanzhong. Guan Xing will now leave. Then,
    you
    will be ordered to go to Sili.
    
      Stepping outside the castle, Guan Suo, the third son of Guan Yu,
    calls.
    He has Guan Xing's equipment and is extremely strong. Let him join.
    
      (MISSING STUFF?)
    
      Going right and up will lead to a Tent, but if you went less right,
    going
    up will fetch some gold. Going really up, right, and finally down will
    come
    to a branch. Going left here will let you get a Sky Helm and to the
    right
    is a Moon Saber and a Youyuu Bow, both strong weapons. Now, go down.
    Going
    really right and up from here will lead to a Thin Axe. Head back left a
    little and go up, right, and down. To the left is a Doomsday Scroll and
    to
    the right is yet another branchway. Going up will lead to a Great Armor
    and
    going down and then right is the exit.
    
      Now, you'll have to go north into Wei. Zhang Liao and Chen Qun makes a
    
    last desperate stand against you here with three Outlaw Armies. If you
    defeat them, Zhang Liao will sigh for the fate of Wei, and die. Now take
    the
    boat, and prepare for the last stage of the game.
    
      You will come to a familiar place (remember Guan Yu's scenario?) Hu
    Ban's
    father is still here and will give you a rest, but the left castle is
    now
    empty, as well as all other structures you will come across, giving a
    nostalgic feeling to this area. This is especially true of the burnt
    citadel
    and of the temple. But alas, it is not siteseeing time. The fate of
    China
    is at stake! Head south to the first Citadel.
    
      The first line of defense of the remaining Wei Army comprises of Dong
    Heng, Dian Man, Guo Yi, and two Outlaw Armies. Except for Guo Yi, the
    other
    two generals are just dumb fighters that can be easily disposed of by An
    
    Sha. If you are not into this lowly tactic, it is still not very hard to
    win
    this battle.
    
      Sima Yi's second son, Sima Zhao, guards the second citadel with Xiahou
    
    Wei and Jiang Yong, two very dependable generals and two Outlaw Armies.
    Concentrating on defeating Sima Zhao first, and neutralize Xiahou Wei
    with
    tactics. Then take out Jiang Yong. This battle should also not be very
    difficult at all.
    
      Now, Sima Shi guards the third castle with Xiahou Ba and Huang You.
    This
    is a bit harder. Sima Shi and Huang You can be big problems, so dispose
    of
    them somehow. But Xiahou Ba is also very strong... so pick an order of
    attack and follow it before Jin Xian comes into play. Then, the elder
    son
    flees to Luo Yang.
    
      You'll now come to the village with the temple... brings old memories,
    
    no? Take a deep breath, heal up, and head for Luoyang.
    
      Sima Shi and Sima Zhao holds at the gate with Dian Man, Dong Heng, and
    an
    Outlaw Army. This battle is pretty hard actually. Dispose of Dian Man
    and
    Dong Heng ASAP and work your best to route Sima Shi. Sima Zhao should
    follow
    afterwards. But conserve your tactic points and items... right after
    this
    resistance is defeated, you will be met by Sima Yi.
    
    DECISIVE BATTLE: SIMA YI
    ------------------------
      The cool battle music plays one last time in the battle that will
    decide
    the fate of China. Sima Yi strikes with Zhang He and Xu Huang (the two
    best
    fighters left in Wei), and the Xiahou brothers Wei and Ba, sons of
    Xiahou
    Yuan and able fighters. This is truly a hard battle, since you just had
    a battle beforewards. Since most of the opponents are fighters, it is
    best
    to neutralize them (a good way to do this is with a single Ji Mian or Ba
    
    Gua, although I prefer Ji Mian since Ba Gua does not have other
    advantages
    that I know of) first. Or, an alternative is just An Sha the four off
    one
    by one if you are not using Zhuge Liang as tactician. This will seem
    easy,
    but the problem of Sima Yi is still there. He is a hard hitter himself,
    and
    will not hesitate to heal himself either! If you use Zhuge Liang, you
    can
    stop his commands with Ce Mian. So there is a tradeoff here, similar to
    the battle of Destiny of an Emperor I. Save those Power Pills. They
    definately come in handy.
    
      After the battle, step into Luoyang and talk to the people. Finally,
    go
