Sun Ce Walkthrough

Task One : Sun Ce's Beginning (By my father's Sword)

Pre Task text :
I shall become conqueror, and

After the death of Sun Jian, the son Sun Ce
 borrowed troops

Post Task Text :
Sun Ce had finally taken up arms. He gathered his loyal retainers together to
take council on what would be the first step to take in unifying the country.
Sun Ce : My friends, thank you for joining me here. Before we begin, I have
   something I would like to tell you. The famous Master Zhang Zhao has
   listened to my plea and agreed to join us in our struggles.
Zhang Zhao : It is a pleasure to join you. My name is Zhang Zhao. I would ask
   that you overlook my blunt and outspoken nature.
Sun Ce : Master, we welcome your wisdom. Now, let me introduce the remainder
   of us. This is my long time friend and brother in law, Zhou Yu. He has no
   match in the realm of strategy.
Zhou Yu : It is my honor to meet you. I am Zhou Yu.
Sun Ce : Next is the cunning Huang Gai, who served my father before me.
Huang Gai : My name is Huang Gai. The spear is my weapon and there is none who
   can match me on the battlefield!
Sun Ce : Excellent. Now I would like to make one thing clear. My goal is to
   unify the land. It is not power or wealth. I desire the thrill of battle,
   of defeating all who stand before me. I wish to see how far my own skill
   will take me in this land of ours.
Zhou Yu : A concept that many will find difficult to understand. However, I
   believe that it is this simplicity that will give Lord Ce the strength to
   win. And it is my extreme pleasure to aid him in achieving this dream.
Huang Gai : Exactly! We are all anxiously awaiting the day that our Lord Ce
   will command a unified land!
Sun Ce : I have no plans past the unification of the land. Nor am I
   interested in rule. I shall leave govering and order to those more suited
   to the task. One of you who follows me may find yourself holdinng absolute
   power someday! Ha ha ha!
Zhang Zhao : I shall look forward to it. My mind is already filled with ideas
   for the structure of a new country.
Huang Gai : With all of this chaos, our homeland of Jiang Dong had become a
   stirring pot of thieves and rebels. It was my Lord Ce's father, Lord Jian,
   who pacified the land and brought peace to us. Lord Ce, the people of
   Jiang Dong look to you to continue your father's work and defend the peace
   of the land.
Sun Ce : I am fully aware of that! I swear that I shall do all I can to
   protect our land.
Zhou Yu : It appears that we each have our own reasons for following my Lord
Sun Ce : Yes, and if I am successful in carrying on in my goal to unify the
   land, all of your expectations will be fulfilled. So what should be our
   first step ?
Zhou Yu : We do not yet have a stable land base. We must spread our territory
   and build a base from which to conquer the world.
Sun Ce : Then which land should we take first ?
Zhang Zhao : That would of course be Jiang Dong. The people here are groaning
   under the whips of such villains as Liu Yong, Yan Bai Hu, and Wang Lang.
   It will not be difficult to destroy them and take all of Jiang Dong.
Huang Gai : The people of Jiang Dong will surely rejoice at the coming of my
   Lord Sun Ce.
Sun Ce : All right! I see that your thoughts match mine. It is decided! Our
   first goal is Jiang Dong! We must prepare for battle at once!
Zhou Yu : My lord!

Hearing that Sun Ce had raised an army, former officers of his father, Sun
Jian, rush to his aid. With the momentum on his side, Sun Ce marches against
Wu's Yan Bai Hu and Jui Ji's Wang lang to gain total control of the Jiang
Dong Region.

Zhang Zhao, Cheng Pu and Han Dang have joined Sun Ce. Sun Ce has decided to
attack Wu and Hui Ji.

Task Two : Sun Ce at Jiang Dong

Post Task Text :
Having connqured the territory of Jiang Dong, Sun Ce selected Jian Ye for his
capital. While fortifying his position, he began to evaluate the surrounding
In the Imperial Captial of Xu Chang, Cao Cao controlled the Emperor and
wielded Imperial power. This was a threat that even Sun Ce in distand Jiang
Dong could not ignore.
Zhou Yu sends spies to Xu Chang to discover Cao Cao's plans. One day, the
spies come back with two pieces of information.
Sun Ce : The bastard! Who does he think he is ?
Zhou Yu : There is no need to become angry.
Sun Ce : What?! He calls me a rabid dog of little consequence, and you say
   not to become angry ? I'll take Xu Chang now and have his head
Zhou Yu : My Lord, you must stay calm! A general holds the lives of all in his
   hands. He must not lose control, especially over an enemy's taunts.
Sun ce : Ah... Forgive me. You've told me that many times before
Zhou Yu : Now, I deem this other piece of information to be of greater
   importance. Rumors have long spoken of an impending clash between Yuan Shao
   and Cao Cao. Word is that Yuan Shao is finally moving toward the Capital
   Xu Chang. Cao Cao is cetain to take his entire force to meet Yuan Shao. The
   battle will probably occur around the area of Guan Du. Then there will be
   no one defending Xu Chang!. This is our Chance! If we take the emperor and
   imperial capital, we'll be a lot close to unifying the country! That is
   true, my lord. However, Xu Chang is extremely far off. It would not be easy
   to reach there. Also, I am concerned over Jing's Liu Biao. There is a good
   chance that he would attack us from behind if we were to leave on such a
   long campaign. Rather than do that, I believe we should concentrate on
   building our forces while Cao Cao and Yuan Shao are distrated in the north.
Sun Ce : I see. And where do you think we should go first ?
Zhou Yu : The bounty of the Jing Province is well known. It is also a
   strategic location that will give us access to the entire land. I believe
   this should be our first priority. To start, we should attack the city of
   Lu Kou.
Sun Ce : As always, you are thinking one step ahead. Still, the idea of making
   a fast thrust through to Xu Chang is hard for me to let go.
Zhou Yu : The decision is yours. However, I beg to consider carefully. Once
   you start out on either road, there will be no turning back.
Sun Ce : I will keep that in mind.

Sun Ce has decided to attack either Lu Kou or Xu Chang.

Sun Ce has made Jian Ye his capital.

Task Three : Kingdom of Wu

Task Four A : Cao Cao take the North (Aim for the Heavens)

Post Task Text :
Having conquered all of He Bei, Cao Cao's forces were immense. In comparison,
the forces that Sun Ce could call on were ridiculously small.
Soon after he subjugates all of Jiang Dong, Sun Ce faces the greatest danger
of his life. However, he does not appear worried.
Sun Ce : Cao Cao has invited me to go hunting with him.
Zhou Yu : By likening war to hunting, he apparently thinks he's being clever.
Sun Ce : It looks like some believe we should surrender. But I have no qualms
   about fighting.
Zhou Yu : I am well aware of that.

During Sun Ce's frantic preparation for battle, Liu Bei's messenger, Zhuge
Liang, arries in camp with a proposal to join forces to fight Cao Cao.
Zhuge Liang : My Lord Liu Bei has long heard of the courage and strength of
   Lord Sun...
Sun Ce : I dislike flattery. Come to the point.
Zhuge Liang : Forgive me. I have come to offer our aid to you in your
   upcoming battle against Cao Cao.
Sun Ce : You would aid us in our fight ? Jing is soon to be overrun by Cao
   Cao. How is a landless Lord Liu going to fight ?
Zhuge Liang : Yes. Among the General's land is Jiang Xia. This overlooks
   Jiang Ling in the west and borders Lu Kou to the south. Our forces will
   defend this land. If General Sun holds Chai Sang, we will be able to catch
   Cao Cao between our two forces and destroy him.
Zhou Yu : In other words, we'll fight Cao Cao with you, so give us Jiang Xia,
   right ?
Zhuge Liang : I would prefer not to put it that way. How about, we will
   defend your land of Jiang Xia for you.
Zhou Yu : What was it...the "Three Kingdoms"? After we defeat Cao Cao, you
   use Jiang Xia as a starting point to take Jiang and the Yi. Is that about
   right ?
Zhuge Liang : My Lord is keen. There is no response to that and so I will
   withdraw and await your answer.
Zhou Yu : Allowing Liu Bei into Jiang Xia will certainly provide a breakwater
   against the forces of Cao Cao. If that is what you want then the alliance
   is an excellent idea. However, in the long run, allowing Liu Bei to gain
   strength is not a wise plan.
Sun Ce : I do not need aid to defeat the likes of Cao Cao!

Sun Ce presses for an immediate showdown with Cao Cao. Hoeer, Zhou Yu opposes
this and urges him to wait to meet Cao Cao in a naval battle on Chang Jiang.
Sun Ce accepts this idea. He agrees to concentrate on preparing his forces
until Cao Cao defeats Liu Bei and overcomes all of Jing.

Sun Ce has entered battle with Cao Cao.

A man called Fei Zhan has occupied Shi Shin and appears to be opposing Sun Ce.

Task Four B : Sun Quan's Stand

Task Five A : Shoot for the Sun

Task Five B : Night before Chi Bi

Task Six A : The Fleeing Liu Bei (Conqueror)

Pre-Task Text :
Pressed by Cao Cao, Liu Bei fled Jing. Liu Bei and all his officers
disappeared. Meanwhile, Cao Cao sent an advance force across the Chang Jiang
and it occupied Lu Kou. The showdown between the forces of Sun Ce and the
forces of Cao Cao was fast approaching. Cao Cao's force, gathered from the
heavily populated Zhong Yuan area, was said to approach a million men. In
contrast, the forces of Sun Ce are few. In an attempt to even the odds, Sun
Ce calls a council of War and begins to lay plans.
Zhou Yu : My Lord, you were missing this morning.
Sun Ce : Yes, we had excellent weather today, so I decided to take a ride and
   see how the enemy was formed.
Zhou Yu : By yourself ?
Sun Ce : It is faster that way. There is no one around who can keep up with
Zhou Yu : My Lord ! A commander of men must not place himself in danger
   unnecessarily! Think of your men! If anything were to happen to you, it
   would mean our defeat!
Sun Ce : Ha ha ha, don't get so angry! Actually, I have brought back some
   interesting information from my ride. I have learned where the enemy's
   supply depot is. All supplies are being gathered at Mt. Ju Tie. Also the
   defenses there are rather weak.
Huang Gai : Cao Cao defeated Yuan Shao by burning his supplies. I do not
   believe he would allow the same thing to happen to himself.
Sun Ce : I saw it my own eyes! There is no mistake. Cao Cao is taking me
   lightly. He believes that I will try for a naval battle on the Chang Jiang.
Huang Gai : And so what do you believe we should do?
Sun Ce : We must attack Mt. Ju Tie and burn his supplies! Without supplies,
   Cao Cao will have no choice but to retreat! To open the path to Mt. Ju Tie,
   we must first take and hold Lu Kou. When we have that in hand, I will ...
Zhou Yu : My Lord, you are not going to say that you will personally lead the
   assault, now are you?
Sun Ce : Of course I am! This battle will decide the war! Do you think I will
   let something this fun be done by someone else?
Zhou Yu : But my Lord! The commander...
Sun Ce : Stop, Zhou Yu! Not another word. This is something I must do!

Sun Ce has decided to attack Lu Kou.
The armies must be reorganized for the attack.

Post task text :
After occupying Lu Kou, Sun Ce quickly formed a special assault force. He
personally took command of the force and attacked Cao Cao's supply depot at
Mt. Ju Tie.

Success is ours
Pull back before reinforcement arrives
End of FMV

Sun Ce's assault went without a hitch, and the supply depot was burned to the
With this defeat, Cao Cao's overwhelming numbers became a liability, and
supplies became a problem. Cao Cao was forced to forego his dreams of conquest
and return with his army to Xu Chang.
Though the people of Wu were giddy with victory, Sun Ce himself had not
escaped unharmed.
During the battle of Chi Bi, Sun Ce, who had personally led the pursuit, had
been surrounded. Though his bold spear allowed him to escape, he was badly
However, not wanting to show weakness, he orders the men with him to silence,
and says nothing of his wound to Zhou Yu and the other officers.

Sun Ce has decided to campaign into both northern and southern Jing.

Task Six B ?? : Liu Bei borrows Jiang Xia (The Moment Of Truth)

Task Seven A : Assault on Mt. Jiu Tie

Post Task Text :
Even after being wounded, Sun Ce tried to act as if nothinng had happened.
However, Zhou Yu soon perceived the subtle difference in his lord's behaviour.
Waiting until the other officers were away, Zhou Yu questions Sun Ce.
Sun Ce : I knew I couldn't hide it from you.
Zhou Yu : The wound may be deep. However, if you rest and gain aid, I am
   certain it will heal. An excellent opportunity. You should concentrate on
   commanding this battle and leave the front lines to us!
Sun Ce : I can not do that! I was born to wield a spear. It is my life!
Zhou Yu : If you were merely a regular soldier, that would be truly
   praiseworthy. However, as I have said many times before, a Commander does
   not have that freedom!
Sun Ce : I will not stay out of the fight! I must be in the fighting! Asking
   others to fight, while you sit and watch... That is for cowards.
Zhou Yu : Lord Ce...
Sun Ce : Don't look at me like that.

Around this time, Sun Quan and Sun Li took the field to aid their older
brother Ce. Sun Quan was rumoured to be the equal of his brother in ability.
Sun Li was well versed in the arts of war and strategy and had a fiery spirit,
equal to that of her brothers.
In this way, Sun Ce strengthened and organized his forces for battle against
both the approaching Cao Cao and the internal uprisings that had occured.

Sun Quan and Sun Li has joined Sun Ce.
Xu Gong has taken Wu. Shi Xie has taken Nan Hai. Both oppose Sun Ce.

Task ??

The wound he received from battle with Cao Cao slowly began to affect Sun Ce's
health. Sun Ce realized that his remaining time was short. He knew that if he
was going to attack the powerful Cao Cao and seize the greater portion of
land, he had to attack soon. He gathers his advisors to plan.
Zhang Shao : Attack Cao Cao? Are you serious? Even the smallest child on the
   streets knows that Wu cannot stand against that force.
Sun Ce : Regardless, I wish to attack Cao Cao now!
Zhang Zhao : Do not be childish!
Huang Gai : Lord Zhang is right! To stand any chance at all against Cao Cao we
   must gain more strength.
Sun Ce : (I don't have that time! But I can't tell them that!)
Huang Gai : Lord Zhou, don't just sit there. You tell our Lord how foolish
   his idea is as well.
Zhou Yu : ...Forgive me, but I cannot say anything at this time.
Huang Gai : What? What's wrong? That is not like you.
Zhang Zhao : Whatever. Wu is still too weak to survive a confrontation with
   Cao Cao. We must gain strength. First, in order to raise strength quickly,
   we must take Yi away from Liu Zhang. You understand that, don't you ?!
Sun Ce : All right. Then that is what we will do. Prepare for battle. We shall
   attack Liu Zhang's capital, Cheng Du!
Huang Gai : My Lord!

Task ??

Sun Ce entered the Yi province. Aiming to occupy Cheng Du, Sun Ce pushed
through Yi. To further the attack on Liu Zhang, Sun Ce temporarily makes
Wu Ling his capital.

Task ??

Liu Zhang was pushed into a corner by Sun Ce's attack. Suddenly, Liu Zhang
was visited by the long absent Liu Bei and his men. Liu Bei declared that as
a relative he would side with Liu Zhang in this conflict.
However, Liu Bei's purpose was different. He plans to take over Yi after
Sun Ce has been driven off.

Liu Bei's army has joined Liu Zhang's force.

Occupy Cheng Du within the time given.
