Be warned that I'm only on the net twice a week, don't expect replies 
from me which are ten minutes after you've sent the mail. Here's some 
guidelines about sending me mail:

1.Make sure you put the title of the game you're asking about in the
  subject. I've made a fair few FAQs, and it's a bit hard to work 
  things out sometimes.
  
2.If it's an FAQ, make sure that it's not already in the guide!!! If
  it is, I'll do my best to ignore it.
  
  If it's not in there, make sure that the details you provide 
  are, well, DETAILED, and not sketchy. Examples are "Hi need to know
  how to get past this part, i'm in a room and stuck", I need to know
  where you are, etc.
  
3.Ask nicely. So far, most people have, but if your mail goes along
  the lines of "Hi, need code for B2, reply within the next hour 
  otherwise I'll bomb you" will not get you anywhere.
  
That's it. Sorry for being a pain, but it had to be said.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
1)Introduction
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, it's a bit strange writing up a guide for a game which was out
yonks ago, but this game deserves the effort. With another quality
fighting game to their name, Tobal, Square decided to release this 
excellent game. For once, you could say it's realistic fighting. Instead
of taking damage and adding it all up, if you get hit in the arm, 
it falls off. Get a leg chopped off, and you'll limp for the rest of
the battle. It's very fun.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
2)How to Get to the Well
---------------------------------------------------------------------

There's two endings for each character: one is achieved by defeating
all your enemies normally, the other is achieved by going to the
well and fighting in there. Here's how to get there:

*You must wait for your enemy to show up before going on to the next
area, and follow the Code of the Bushido*

-Run all the way up the road and through the tunnel.
-Go across the bridge, turn left and climb up.
-Go forward, into a new area.
-Go forward, turn right and past the building.
-Drop down into a new area.
-Climb into the bamboo.
-Get up the ledges.
-Jump over the fence, into the mud.
-Go forward, drop into the water/ice.
-Cilmb up, head left.
-Jump/climb the stairs.
-Head up the path, exit via the corner.
-Climb up into the new area.
-Jump into the well.

You'll get it downpat after a couple of times.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
3)Bushido Code
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Being a bushido game, you have to observe the code when fighting. 
This means:

1. No smacking your opponent when he's lying on the ground.

2. No whacking your opponent in the back.

3. No slicing your opponent when they are climbing a wall to get away
   from you. Sucks, huh.
   
4. No beheading your opponent before they are ready. Why are their 
   speeches so long anyway?
   
5. No blinding yout opponent by throwing something at them (dirt,
   snow, etc.)

---------------------------------------------------------------------
4)Characters and Moves
---------------------------------------------------------------------

I've just named the moves after what they look like =)

Red Shadow

She is the second fastest character in the game. She is best used with
the lighter weapons such as the saber and the long sword. Her agility
is her main weapon, and use that to the full.

Tatsumi
-------------------------------

Utsusemi's son is very, very quick and agile (he's the fastest 
character available), but he lacks power. But when using the saber
and the rapier, he's so fast that you won't need much power at all.

Mikado
-------------------------------

Mikado is a well balanced character. At first glance you'll probably
think, hey, she'll do well with the Katana/Long Sword, but she really
canes with those bigger weapons, especially the Naginata and Nodachi.
She's pretty fast with those weapons, so she's a great choice.

He is the most balanced male in the game. He's got great speed and
is pretty powerful. Now, you probably think he's great with the 
Nodachi and Naginata. Well, think again. His power lies in the Long
Sword, Broadsword, and the Rapier.
