10/7/06: Sanguo Yanyi Biographies; DoaE III Walkthrough

Unread postby James » Sat Oct 07, 2006 6:57 pm

Presenting four new <a href="/novel/bios/type.php#sgyy"><i>Sanguo yanyi</i> officer biographies</a> authored by SlickSlicer, <a href="http://kongming.net/novel/sgyy/zhugedan.php">Zhuge Dan (Gongxiu)</a>, <a href="http://kongming.net/novel/sgyy/lukang.php">Lu Kang (Youjie)</a>, <a href="http://kongming.net/novel/sgyy/sunhao.php">Sun Hao (Yuanzong)</a>, and last but certainly not least, <a href="http://kongming.net/novel/sgyy/zhoutai.php">Zhou Tai (Youping)</a>. All are wonderful characters with interesting stories (ranging from honorable to horrible) and I’m sure you will enjoy reading them!

Furthermore, forum member Taishi Ci 2.0 has authored a walkthrough for the Genesis ROM version of <a href="http://kongming.net/doae/#faqsdoae3">Destiny of an Emperor III</a> (find the Japanese ROM file on our game downloads page). Several people have played through it with trial-and-error judgment while reviewing the guide, and I’ve heard only good things about the story. If you are up to the challenge, and are a die-hard Destiny of an Emperor fan, his <a href="http://kongming.net/faqs/?section=doae3&faq=destiny_of_an_emperor_3_a.txt&version=1.0&author=Taishi%20Ci%202.0">Destiny of an Emperor III Walkthrough</a> is a great place to begin.

Uggh..I made many errors it seems. In Zhou Tai's...

Zhou Tai served and distinguished himself in many battles after Nanjun. Near Ruxu, when Cao Cao was traveling on a reconnaissance mission to check the strength of Sun Quan’s army, Zhou Tai and Han Dang attacked Cao Cao’s scouting force and then again assaulted Cao Cao with volleys of arrows, forcing Cao Cao to abandon an attempt to invade the Southlands which belonged to Wu. Zhou Tai also aided Sun Quan in his attacks on Huancheng and Hefei. In the latter battle, the Wu army was caught in a trap and Sun Quan was himself surrounded and imperiled “Where is our lord?” inquired Zhou Tai of his soldiers.


I forgot a period after imperiled. I also did not mean to say that they thwarted Cao Cao's attempt to 'invade the Southlands which belonged to Wu,' only that they thwarted his attempt to 'invade the Southlands.' I think I may have left out a comma or two some where as well.

In Zhuge Dan's first note I meant to say...

Zhuge Dan’s service in Wei is not described much in the novel. Historically he did help put down Guanqiu Jian’s rebellion, which is ironic because Zhuge Dan later rebelled in the same city as Guanqiu Jian. But he also fought against the Wu officer Zhuge Ke in the service of Wei, which is even more ironic because if Zhuge Dan was really the cousin of Zhuge Liang, by fighting against Zhuge Ke he was clashing with his own relative, the son of Zhuge Liang’s brother. The translated version of Zhuge Dan’s Sanguozhi on Empire Divided TK interestingly does not ever state that Zhuge Dan was the cousin of Zhuge Liang.

Corrected both. A fairly easy task due to the Development Project. I tried to toss in a link to Zhuge Dan’s biography at Empire Divided as well, but it choked on the link. Guess there are bound to be at least a few errors left to work around when using a beta tool for live production.

If you want to make other changes, just post edited paragraphs.
