Destiny of an Emperor: GB Quickstart

Destiny of an Emperor: Gameboy Quick-Start Guide

You are here: [ Home –> Games –> Destiny of an Emperor –> GB Quickstart ]

In addition to the two Destiny of an Emperors released by Capcom for the NES and the one released for the SNES, they also released a Destiny of an Emperor for the Gameboy – and it is good, as you might expect. Unfortunately, this title has not received a great deal of attention. We’re presenting an English Playguide and this Quick-Start guide to give you a head start in enjoying this wonderful title, even though it is only available (at present) in Japanese.

Credits: I owe great thanks to forum member Niahak not only for extensive help with this game’s translation, but also for writing the partial walkthrough I referenced extensively while writing this quick-start guide (especially for elements such as the shop lists). Thank you very much, Niahak.

Destiny of an Emperor (Gameboy) Quick-Start Guide

Chapter 1: The Yellow Turbans Rebellion (Partial Quick-Start Guide)
(Begins with the game; ends prematurely with the Peace Tree Garden Oath.)

Luo Song Village

top?

Inn
Blacksmith (Copper Sword 100, Iron Sword 500; Copper Spear 150; Iron Spear 700)
Merchant (Stone Remedy 10, Copper Remedy 40; Revive 600; Lower Remedy 160; Protective Talisman 150; Stone 10,000)

  1. Speak with Liu Bei’s mother. She starts you off with 150 Gold.
  2. Equip Liu Bei’s copper sword. Press Select to bring up the status screen, then choose the second option down on the left-hand column. Choose the first option, choose Liu Bei (on the left-hand portion of the screen), then choose the item highlighted by default. You have just equipped a Copper Sword.
  3. The villagers tell you about some Yellow Scarves to the west.
  4. Visit the item shop (the southeastern building). Buy a few Stone Remedies (the items that cost 10 Gold).
  5. Go outside and save up a level or two. When wounded, you can heal with a stone remedy (first option on second column in the game menu or first option of second column in the personal actions of Liu Bei in battle), or head to Xuzhou (just south of Luo Song Village) and stay at the inn (just press confirm over and over again).
  6. Save your game if you haven’t done so already. Choose the third option down in the second column of the main menu.
  7. With a few levels under your belt, travel west to the fort.

  1. Battle Yellow Scarves Chieftan upon entry (Easy)
    • Chieftan
    • Bandit
    • Bandit
      Focus physical attacks on the Yellow Scarves Chieftan healing whenever your life dips too low. When he falls, continue attacking the next enemy in line until they all fall.
  2. Return to Luo Song Village.

Luo Song Village (2nd Visit)

Inn
Blacksmith (Copper Sword 100, Iron Sword 500; Copper Spear 150; Iron Spear 700)
Merchant (Stone Remedy 10, Copper Remedy 40; Revive 600; Lower Remedy 160; Protective Talisman 150; Stone 10,000)

  1. Speak with the man standing west of the Item shop. He will join you in the form of 50 Soldiers! Now, with an army, you can recruit Zhang Fei and Guan Yu.
  2. Save your game.
  3. Travel southeast to Xuzhou Castle.

Xuzhou Castle

Inn
Blacksmith (Copper Sword 100, Iron Sword 500; Copper Spear 150, Iron Spear 700; Copper Axe 200, Iron Axe 900; Copper Bow 300, Iron Bow 1100)
Merchant (“Equivalence” Remedy 60, Tent 200)

  1. Buy two Copper Spears if you can afford them.
  2. Enter the northwestern most building. This is Zhang Fei’s home. Speak with Zhang Fei inside. Because you have defeated the Yellow Scarves Chieftan, and because you now have a small force, he will join your cause to destroy the Yellow Scarves and uphold the Han.
  3. Equip Zhang Fei with a Copper Spear.
  4. Exit Xuzhou and follow the trail east to another village.

Eastern Village

top?

Inn
Blacksmith (Copper Shield 100, Copper Helmet 120; Steel Helmet 250; Cloth Clothes 30, Army Clothes 60; Hide Cap 40; Ceramic Shield 50)

  1. Enter the central building to find Guan Yu. Speak with him. Because his wishes are as your own, and because you are now building up a force, he will agree to join you. You now have Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei!
  2. Equip Guan Yu with a Copper Spear.
  3. At your option, purchase some copper-grade equipment here. It is best not to blow too much money unless you have some to burn, and it is also wise to avoid the cheap gear here as you will soon come across some extra money for your expenses.
  4. Return to Luo Song Village.

Luo Song Village (3rd Visit)

Inn
Blacksmith (Copper Sword 100, Iron Sword 500; Copper Spear 150; Iron Spear 700)
Merchant (Stone Remedy 10, Copper Remedy 40; Revive 600; Lower Remedy 160; Protective Talisman 150; Stone 10,000)

  1. Return to Liu Bei’s mother. She will express her delight now that you have formed an army and found good friends. An oath is discussed, and Liu Bei, Guan Yu, and Zhang Fei exit and walk to the northeastern ritual area where they swear an oath of brotherhood.
  2. Speak with the old man who is presently blocking the town entrance. He will suggest that you join Tao Qian’s volunteer troops!
  3. Save your game if you haven’t already.
  4. Travel to Xuzhou Castle to do just that.

Inn

Merchant (“Equivalence” Remedy 60, Tent 200)

  1. Speak with the soldier walking by the palace in the center of the city. though he finds your band to be “shabby”, he authorizes you to enter the palace.
  2. Enter the palace and speak with Tao Qian. He accepts your services and orders you to travel west to retake the checkpoint which has been seized by the Yellow Scarves. To accomodate your expenses, he provides you with 300 Gold.
  3. If you have not equipped Guan Yu and Zhang Fei with Copper Spears, do so at this point. Travel to the eastern village and upgrade your armor a little if necessary.
  4. Rest at the inn, save your game, and travel to the western checkpoint.

And the game continues…

Now that you have a force of power, you should be in a position to better explore China in Destiny of an Emperor for the Gameboy. From here, defeat the generals at the fort, return to Tao Qian, and he will ask you to reinforce the commander of the castle further to the south. When in doubt along the way, speak with people of importance. If you are interested in helping with a walkthrough or further translation, please let me know!

Good luck!
