    KOEIis Romance of the Three Kingdoms is a strategy game designed around the 
    characters and times of the 14th century historic Chinese novel eRomance  the 
    Three Kingdomsi by Lo Kuan-Chung.  The game player becomes a ruler, in a 
    land fragmented by warring lords, with the task of unifying China.  You must 
    display great cunning, statesmanship, and battle skill to become the greatest 
    ruler in Chinais history.
    Select scenario 1, a strong ruler such as Cao Cao or Liu Bei,  beginner level, and 
    historic mode when just learning to play Dragon of Destiny.  Do not create a 
    ruler or generals until you have become familiar with the general strategy of this 
    	1.	Plan your strategy in advance.  Some of your plans will not prove 
    fruitful for a number of years.
    	2.	Invest gold in cultivation and  your cityis economy.  Assign civil 
    officers for 6 month periods of duty throughout the year to these tasks.  Your 
    food and gold will increase.
    	3.	Train your troops, rally the armies, hire or draft new troops to build 
    your forces.
    	4.	Do not forget to purchase sufficient weapons from the merchants 
    with which to arm your troops. 
    	5.	Use the PLOT command RVL (rival) to create dissension among 
    other war lords, this action will reduce their forces and give you space in which 
    to make your city-state strong.
    	6.	Beware of committing yourself to alliances that will prove to be 
    cumbersome, but make strategic alliances when necessary for the protection of 
    your fledgling empire.
    	7.	Use the commands INFO and SPY to gain information on the cities 
    and rulers around you.  Send your spy in for a minimum of 3 months.  You may 
    be able to recruit your rivals' generals and gain enough information to plan the 
    acquisition of another city.
    	8.	War with other rulers, once you have built your forces, and gain 
    new cities for your empire.
    	9..	When you gain a new city, start building up resources immediately.
    	10.	Strengthen your army before moving.
    	11.	Keep using the RVL command to create dissension and reduce the 
    armies of cities targeted in your plan of conquest.
    	Appoint governors of sufficient ability, officers of  Advisor level, to rule 
    vassal cities.  You will lose control of vassal cities whose governors do not have 
    high enough ability.  You will lose control of your ruler (and lose all hope of 
    winning the game) if he is moved into one of these uncontrollable cities.
    Use this routine to raise your cityis economy, cultivation of food, and defensive 
    and offensive strength while keeping other rulers away.   Start your ruleris 
    conquest when there is enough food, gold and armed troops to conquer and hold 
    new territory.
