ROTK6 is a strategy game mixed with some RPG elements. The setting is
during the Imperial Han Dynasty, 2nd Century AD. You play as one of the
Rulers trying to unify China under one rule. You forge alliances,
battle other rulers for control over a city, recruit officers, find
items and please or betray the Emperor for your own purposes. ROTK6
requires a lot of thinking and time. You can't finish a full scenario
in one day unless you play for about more than 4 hours or so. The game
is also a bit difficult especially if you're a beginner. Don't worry
though, this FAQ will help you understand the game better.


The controls in ROTK6 are simple:

X - select item in the menu
O - cancel
L1/R1 - During Civil mode, go to next/previous city
        During battle, go to next/previous officer

Do you have any created officers? If you do, please send them to me
(jzdman@yahoo.com) and I'll post it here. Proper credit will be given.
You can add more details such as parents, their own bio, and other stuff.

Note: All names and bios are fictional (If you find historical names in this
section, they are
not referring to the historical figure)

(The Officers below are from: IdeoSinKraSee@aol.com)

Name: Cyrus McDohl
Family: Wife- Sarah
           Sons/Daughters- Teos , Rydahl
Birth: 160
Dream: Territorial
Class: Officer
Bio: Originally served under Sun Jian. Was given the city of Ling Ling to
govern after years of service. When Sun Jian died, he broke away from Sun Ce
and went out on his own. Fought and defeated Liu Biao on his own. Then began
a war with surrounding leaders, excluding Sun Jian and Wang Lang.
Successfully absorbed Liu Zhang and Dong Zhou but was defeated by Lie Bei and
executed. Posthumously dubbed the 'Grasping Hand' for his attempts at empire
and for setting off the 'Unification War'

Name- Teos McDohl
Family: Daughter- Lana
Birth: 184
Dream: Advance
Bio: Became ruler after his father's death. Embarked on a war of vengeance
against Liu Bei in retaliation for his father's death. Defeated Liu Bei and
executed his entire clan. After this, he attempted to complete his father's
war for Empire. While a brilliant tactician, Teos was not the equal of his
father's governing mind nor was he as good a judge of character. After
defeating Yuan Shao and Kong Rong, he made Kong Rong's son, Bong Rong, leader
of one of his armies. Bong Rong then betrayed Teos and switched sides in a
major battle between Teos and Cao Cao. Teos was defeated and killed in battle.

Rydahl McDohl
Birth: 185
Family: none
Dream: Territorial
Class: Minister
Bio- Brother of Teos. Assumed control of the McDohl clan after her brother's
death. While not a soldier, she had a quick mind and was an excellent judge
of character. She put a heretofore unknown pair of brothers to the head of
her armies and cities and they, together, were an unstoppable pair. Pahn and
Gremio Jee (the Brothers Jee) launched an all out effort to unify the land.
Pahn's tactical mind and Gremio's able governing combined with Rydahl's
charisma were almost enough to subdue the land. All of the South was absorbed
into the McDohl territory and most of the East and West. However, the
combined power of Cao Cao, Kong Zhou, Gongsun Zan and Serra Madine were
enough to defeat the main armies of McDohl. During the quick retreat that
followed, Sun Ce declared war and managed to take much of the South from
Rydahl. She returned to her new capital of Chang An and, while participating
in the new wars, never again attempted to unfiy the land.

Lana McDohl
Birth: 200
Family: none
Dream: Territorial
Class: General
Bio- Daughter of Teos McDohl. Received rulership over the reduced land of the
McDohls after Rydahl's death at the hands of Ma Chao. During her brief rule,
Lana controlled North Eastern and Eastern China, lands formerly belonging to
Ma Teng and Liu Zhang. She participated in the last battle of the Unification
Wars and was soundly defeated, as were Ran Motley, Cao Ren, Sun Quan and Ma
Chao. Instead of being executed, she was forcibly married to Aeris Madine's
son Gideon, and the Hereditary Seal taken from her and presented to the
victor, Aeris.

hehehe...i'll add more soon!

A. If you're the Attacker
I. Prepare Your Troops

If you want to wage a war, you must first have troops. You can draft
soldiers in a city once a month. Also, your number of troops should not
exceed 1/4 of your total population. An officer with the highest LS can
draft the most no. of troops.

II. Generals

Your troops need to be led by generals. Your generals can only command
50(5000) soldiers unless you give them a rank. The higher their rank,
the more troops they can lead.

III. Enemies

Of course, you can only attack your enemies you can't attack your
allies unless you annul your alliance with them. Be careful though,
they can also attack you if you're not allied with them.

IV. Starting the War

To start a war, select ARMY then WAR. Then choose the city and choose
the generals who will participate in the war. Then give generals a
troop for them to command. If you want, you can bring an Army Advisor
with you and finally input the number of food you want to bring. I
suggest you bring at least 3000 food.

V. Aid

If the city your are attacking is also adjacent to other cities (which
is yours), you can send reinforcements to make your force stronger. Do
this by selecting ARMY and AID.

VI. During the Battle

During the battle, you'll see your generals and the enemy generals. If
you're the attacker, you should always leave one unit (I recommend the
unit with the least no. of troops) in the camp to avoid the food being
captured. Give each unit a command and press O to start the turn.

B. If you're the one being attacked
I. Sally

You can only select this option if you have a good I-net. If you choose
'sally', you won't fight in the castle but in the field instead. If you
lost in the field battle, the enemies will advance to the castle gates
and another battle will occur.

II. Fort

Sometimes if you don't have a good I-net, you won't notice the enemy
movement until they have come to your castle gates. This option will
allow you to fight in the castle. Do not select this option unless your
cannot select the 'Sally' option.

III. Retreat

If you cannot defend the city, select this option to retreat to the
nearest city.

IV. Burn

Just like retreat but this will raze the city. This will also decrease the
ruler's PR.


Titles are given to rulers by the 'real' Han Emperor (Ling/Shao/Xian). If the
Capital (most likely Luo Yang or Xu Chang) is one of your cities, you control
the Emperor.
If you control the emperor, you can talk to him by selecting the MISC -> AUD
If you do what he wants you to do, he will give you a higher title. Titles can
also be given
to other rulers by the ruler who controls the emperor.

Here are the titles which can be given to you by the Emperor and its effects to
your PR:

TITLE                       PR

Lieutenant Governor         +1
Governor                    +1
Commander of Royal Guard    +2
Commander of Tiger Escort   +2
Commander of North Corps    +3
Commander of South Corps    +3
Commander of Right Corps    +4
Commander of Left Corps     +4
Commander of Five Posts     +5
Lord of the Perimeter       +6
Lord of the Capital         +6
Minister of the Exterior    +8
Minister of the Interior    +8
Grand Commander             +9

-A. Non - Gameshark Cheats-

Here are the cheats I know:

This is a very common cheat. First create 29 officers and when you're creating
the 30th
Officer, you can select a new class for him/her: CHAMPION

If you want to draft all types of units in a city, go to ARMY -> DRAFT
and highlight TYPE then press SELECT three times.

To control the enemy and give orders to them during war, press []
(Square) to see a menu of the generals participating in the war and
then select the one of the enemy generals and press O quickly before
the next screen comes up. This will enable you to give orders to the
Note: The enemy generals will follow your orders ONLY if you are the
one being attacked. On rare occasions, this cheat will also work if you are the

This isn't really a cheat but a strategy. When you start the game,
select more than one ruler (8 is the max no.). Make sure you select the
ruler you really want to play. And when the game starts, give all the
other rulers' money, food, items to the real ruler you want to play.

Ex: In the scenario: Liu Bei - King of Han-Zhong
You want to play as Liu Bei. But instead of selecting just Liu Bei,
also select Cao Cao and Sun Quan. Then when the game starts, give all
Cao Cao and Sun Quan's gold, money & items to Liu Bei!

Again, this isn't really a cheat. If you want more rulers in the last two
first select all three rulers when starting the game and make sure that the
rulers die
(ex: Cao Cao, Liu Bei, Liu Chan, Cao Rui or Sun Quan dies). To do this, you can
them in a duel. Now when you're prompted to select the new ruler, select the
last one in
the list.

Ex: Liu Bei dies and you're prompted to select the new ruler. Instead of
selecting Liu Chan,
select the last officer in the WHOLE list (not just the page). When you do,
officers' loyalty should drop greatly and will revolt. Based on experience, at
two officers will succeed in revolting. Now you got new rulers! (I did this to
Liu Bei
and I didn't select Liu Chan. Instead, I selected the last officer in the list
and Guan Yu,
Zhang Fei, and other protectors of cities of Shu revolted against the new
ruler. Now the
Shu emperor has only 4 cities left!

1. Use the ability to control more than one ruler to your advantage. Use the
"Wealthy Start"
cheat found in the cheats section.

2. Always have at least one officer go on a long-term search. He might find new
officers, Yellow Turban bandit or even a tiger which will increase both his
Military Exp
and your Prestige (PR).

3. If you control the Emperor, talk to him. He might ask you to ally with
another ruler,
contribute some food or gold, fire officers or ask you to give another ruler a
title. If he does, accept it (I always do what he tells me to do except fire
officers) and he will grant
you titles. Only stop accepting his requests if you already have the highest
title that can
be given to you (Prime Minister) because he can't give you a title, higher than

4. If it's your first time playing this game (or haven't read the book), watch
the opening sce-
nes. This way, you'll be able to familiarize yourself with the names of the
characters and
the story.

5. An alliance in the game is very helpful. If you're allied with a ruler and
want to attack a
city, you can prepare a joint attack to create a stronger force. Also, if an
enemy city is
adjacent to 2 of your cities and at least 1 of you ally's cities, you can
create a joint, aided
attack which is composed of three forces: Main Force and 2 Reinforcements (1
from ally's city
and 1 from another one of your cities).

6. If you want to challenge an enemy general to a duel and he doesn't accept,
use your Army
Advisor's Fake command to confuse him and after a few tries, he should accept.

7. Use the TALK command at least once a month to increase your officers'

8. Assign officers with high POL stats to Farm or Commerce Task.

9. Assign officers with high WAR stats to Public Safety Task.

10. If you want to force an enemy general in war to a duel, use the army
advisor's FAKE command.


This is what your officers will tell you if you talk to them using the

Of course, credit will be given to you...

From: manisan
Tips how to maintain your main army:
In battle outside the city, keep your main army surrounded by your sub-armies.
When the enemy
is approaching your HQ, it will be blocked by your other squads, and from the
HQ you could
attack with arrows. It works very well if you handle large enemies. Your HQ
won't lose any
troops and you can eliminate the enemies very fast.

Duel with the enemy commander:
Always try to taunt the enemy commander and if he responds, his army will be
confused. You
can try to challenge the enemy commander after that. The chance of the
commander accepting
the challenge is pretty high.

From: Sun Jian
Easy way to destroy a large power:
The easiest way to destroy a large power is cut off their supply lines. When
you attack an
enemy city and its supply line is cut, they will have no food and are more
easier to defeat.

Other ways to force a duel:
- Set fires
- Charge the target enemy until its soldiers panic

Prevent officers with low loyalty from being recruited:
Make low-loyalty officers go on a long term search so they can't be recruited.
This is useful
for building up a good general's loyalty.

From: fordandmazda
Decrease enemy morale:
Make your strong generals (High WAR stat) challenge an enemy officer. Usually,
they won't
accept the challenge. Their morale will decrease by one everytime the enemy
refuses. Do this
using more than one general and eventually the enemy soldiers' morale will go
down to zero.

Dealing with large enemy reinforcements:
Everytime your army attacks an weak enemy city, they will most likely send
reinforcements to
help the weak army defend their city. In the beginning of the battle, use the
majority of your
army to attack the enemy commander. When the reinforcements arrive, you can
simply ignore them
and concentrate on attacking the enemy commander. If the enemy commander is
defeated, the other
enemy generals will try to flee. You can try to pursue the fleeing enemy
generals and
