What exactly did you do there to get Liu Bei to "Ooo" you? There are a couple of different circumstances that could be defined as exile (including a proper "get out of my force NOW" exile), but I've never been "Ooo"ed at.

I have yet to execute any of my own officers. But I also haven't played as Dong Zhuo yet :huohu: I could see trying to execute your own officers coming into play, *if* they were able to access their prestige abilities, since some of them are kind of naughty. But alas...

The sad thing about ruler play is that it's really the only way to have complete control over everything you're doing. And by that, I don't mean lording over all the minutae. I mean being able to do a bond quest without your master force-ordering you and your own underlings to take part in suicide battles. By playing as ruler, your character is free to do as he or she pleases. The flip side to that is that you'll be spending waaaaaaaayyyy more time handling all the things that the AI under you is incompetent at.

With that said, I've kind of had my fill of playing as rulers for the moment. It's too bad there's not a happy balance where you can play some bozo and your ruler doesn't treat you like his/her literal right arm.

(Side note, in my last session, I initiated a bond quest with Ze Rong. His mission for me was to chase off some heretic bandit in the next city. It would be him to ask such a request, right? I'd like to think he really just wants me to clear the place out so he can take over.)

I exiled him through the council:

The gameplay seems pretty much the same for me no matter what route I go, the exception being when I was, say, a bandit, but you're right, as a ruler you get to be pretty free. The game gets kind of repetitive after a while, though; the only thing keeping me going is the hilarious dialogue and friendships. Like when your friends seemingly live in your house and drag random people in from outside and ask if you should rob them or treat them with hospitality.

Does prosperity affect your game endings? I haven't noticed. Because otherwise it's pretty easy to just blob through the map. The one thing I absolutely hate, though, is how you can be forced into ceasefires and alliances if you don't have somebody in your vicinity smart enough to out-debate someone like Xun Yu. I just kept breaking them, but then noticed that all of my officers kept leaving me force and everyone hated me and nobody would do me any favors -- I found out the hard way that people don't like rulers who break oaths.

But I'm Zhang Yan. What do they expect?

As I play on and off, I do have one thing that keeps coming up that I have to ask about. Periodically, my character on starting a game seems incapable of buying any alcohol no matter where I shop. This makes banquets difficult. After a while, something changes and I'm able to start purchasing alcohol in cities. Does anyone know why that is?

I'm worried it's related to having the Brewery improvement in your home city, but if it's that, that doesn't make sense, since it affects every other city I go to as well.

I'll have to try that exile thing, I want to make people say "Ooo" as well!

I've noticed the same problem, but unfortunately don't know of any solution. It must be some sort of bug.

Irresponsible answer from someone who doesn't even have the game: Are your characters old enough to purchase alcohol at the start of the game? *flees*

You might actually be on to something with that answer!

Does anyone know the list of unlockable characters for XIII? I have Ying Bu and Zhang Liang, so I wonder if it's the same list of 32 as in XI?
