Original Thread: Mothers with high expectations, Let's Play Destiny of an Emperor!



So basically sometime in China, this guy wrote a really big book about the fall of the Han Dynasty called Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Although it's a good book and all, we will be playing the too long; didn't read RPG version, as I never got into the SRPG version, or whatever it's supposed to be.

Unfortunately, the Megaman sticker will not be included in this LP, as I am a cheap bastard.

Destiny of an Emperor came out in NA in 1990, and naturally being about an obscure piece of history for North America, it was sort of an obscure game itself. Although it is as linear as a piece of uncooked spaghetti, and has other issues with balance and whatnot, it provides a decent summery of the book- ..well at least until midway where things begin to go to outer space. It also has a pretty cool soundtrack that I urge you all to give a listen to, in which I will supply the music.

Main Characters

Liu Bei- A village brat who grew up with his strict mother, and is the descendant of some Marquis, so therefore has to save the empire. Facial hair not included in this game.

Zhang Fei- A local drunkard who thinks he knows what he's talking about. Good side is that he has the brawn to back it up, which is what the team needs.

Guan Yu- A guy who got kicked out of his town for killing some other guy, and somehow ended up in Liu Bei's back water town. He has a really manly beard, and that's all you really need to know about him.

So without further ado...
