encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_aizu The domain of Aizu provided constant resistance to the Imperialists during the Boshin war, so following the fall of Edo represented the keystone of the northern resistance. The Imperial forces resolved to break the back of this opposition, marching to war with Aizu in the Autumn of 1868. Through the Bonari Pass and into Aizu itself the invaders met with stout resistance but eventually forced the capitulation of Matsudaira Katamori, the daimyo of Aizu, in November of that year. The campaign is famous for the tenacious defence mounted by the citizens of Aizu, and in particular the White Tigers, the youngest of the enlisted Aizu soldiers. Mistakenly believing their home town lost, all but one committed seppuku on a hillside overlooking the castle. Following the battle, the traditional values espoused by their story resonated strongly through a Japan struggling to come to terms with its rapid modernisation. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_anegawa In 1570, during Oda Nobunaga’s campaign to become Shogun, he chose to besiege Odani Castle, home of his new enemy Asai Nagamasa. Asai had recently broken his alliance with Oda, presenting a danger to the flanks of the Oda forces stationed in the region. When Oda and his ally Tokugawa Ieyasu moved against the castle Asai and his allies sallied out to meet the attackers. What followed was a bloody struggle in the flowing waters of the River Anegawa. Although the Asai fought well and seemed on the verge of defeating Oda, the budding warlord managed to hold them in place (by excellent tactical use of his 500 matchlock ashigaru) until Tokugawa, having dispensed with Asai’s allies, could wheel around and attack the Asai right flank. At this point the Oda general Inaba Ittetsu, who had been hitherto held in reserve, brought his force to bear on the Asai left flank. Eventually realising that the day had gone against him, Asai retreated and withdrew back inside the castle, leaving Oda and his allies depleted and weary of battle. Oda didn’t attack Odani Castle again for three years, during which time the Asai managed to inflict a retaliatory defeat upon him which resulted in the death of Oda Nobuharu, Nobunaga’s younger brother. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_hakodate In October 1868, towards the end of the Boshin War, the remaining forces of the Shogunate attempted to consolidate under the banner of the Ezo Republic. Around 3000 rebels retreated to the northern island of Hokkaido and occupied a massive star-fort known as Goryokaku. Built in the European style to counter potential threats from foreign aggressors, Goryokaku was thought to be virtually impregnable to assault. Even so, the rebels, and their French military advisors, lost no time in fortifying the surrounding countryside against the inevitable Imperial attack. Following the naval Battle of Miyako, Imperial forces landed on 9th April 1869. What followed was a period of intense fighting, as the Emperor’s men systematically defeated the entrenched rebel troops before besieging and capturing Goryokaku itself. Following the loss of around half its troop strength and the unexpected and hurried departure of its French military advisors, the Ezo Republic surrendered on 17th May 1869. True

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_kawagoe By the late 16th century, the Hojo [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clan/url? had expanded into the Kanto region; territory previously ruled by their rivals the Uesugi. In 1545, seeking to reclaim the lost land, the two remaining branches of the Uesugi clan - the Yamanouchi and the Ogigayatsu – joined forces alongside Ashikaga Haruuji, a treacherous former Hojo ally. The Uesugi besieged Kawagoe castle with 85,000 men, capture of which would give them control of the valuable Hojo northern defences. Leading the garrison of 3,000 was Hojo Tsunanari, who managed to get word of the siege to his brother, Hojo Ujiyasu, in command of another 8,000 troops. Still massively outnumbered, the Hojo brothers’ only chance was a surprise night attack on the overconfident Uesugi. This daring assault resulted in disarray and utter defeat for the Uesugi and their allies. Ogigayatsu Tomosada was killed during the battle, bringing his line to an end. The Uesugi were also brought dangerously close to extinction. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_kawanakajima The rivalry began when Takeda Shingen’s conquests resulted in the expulsion of Uesugi allies Murakami Yoshiharu and Ogasawara Nagatoki from their fiefs and the Takeda began to threaten Uesugi Kenshin’s borders. Following a number of indecisive skirmishes, Kenshin decided to launch a massive assault to finally rid himself of Shingen. Kenshin’s army of 18,000 was positioned on the mountain of Saijoyama, looking down upon Shingen’s castle, and were unaware that they had caught him by surprise with only a small garrison present. Shingen, absent at the time, received word of Kenshin’s move and travelled to fortify the castle with 20,000 warriors, keeping the river between his force and Kenshin’s as protection. Once back inside the walls, Shingen attempted to trap Kenshin in a pincer movement, but the move was anticipated and Kenshin’s army broke through the Takeda defensive lines. Legend has it that Kenshin and Shingen personally met in battle and, caught off-guard in his command tent, Shingen fought defensively until a retainer could spear Kenshin’s horse and drive him away. Neither side was able to claim outright victory as, despite the eventual rout of the Uesugi army following a flanking action to their rear, the Takeda also lost many important generals in the battle. The 4th Battle of Kawanakajima resulted in the greatest number of casualties of any battle during the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_sengoku_jidai"]]Sengoku Jidai/url?. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_kizugawaguchi The Ikko-Ikki proved to be a great thorn in the side of Oda Nobunaga. They were fanatically dedicated, unafraid to die for their beliefs and had many powerful allies – who also happened to be enemies and rivals of Oda. Their main fortress was the Ishiyama Hongan-Ji, at the mouth of the Yodo River, and they were supported by the Mori, a [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clan/url? with formidable naval power. Oda Nobunaga had begun besieging the Hongan-Ji in 1576, but was met with great opposition. Seeking to weaken them, he set about isolating the monks from outside aid by breaking the Mori naval supply lines. Despite using Kuki Yoshitaka as his naval commander, who had served him so well at Nagashima, Oda’s fleet was outclassed by the superior Mori armada. For his second attempt, he discarded traditional fleet composition and instead replaced it with six giant, specially commissioned, iron-plated warships. These were called “o-ataka bunes" and were larger than the ataka bunes, which in themselves were massive vessels. However, the battle revealed a flaw in the ships: when one was boarded, the crew rushed to meet the threat and the sudden shift in weight capsized it! However, the o adake bunes still proved their worth, beating the Mori and cutting off the Ikko-Ikki’s supplies. With no aid or allies to help them, the Ikko-Ikki soon used up all their resources and were forced to capitulate in 1580, granting Oda Nobunaga his long sought victory. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_miyako_bay On 6th May 1869, the Imperial Navy reached the northern island of Hokkaido and the rebel forces of the so-called “Ezo Republic”. However, the former Shogunate forces were ready for them, and launched several ships to head off the Imperial ships. Unfortunately, two of the Ezo ships had engine trouble. The Banryu got left behind and returned to port while the Takao couldn’t join the battle by the time Kaiten, the Ezo flagship, attacked and boarded its opposite number, the iron-clad Kotetsu. To make matters worse, the height difference between the Kaiten and the Kotetsu meant that the rebel samurai were unable to board en masse. Once the Kotetsu’s Gatling gun opened up the boarders were easily mown down. Somehow, the Kaiten managed to disengage and escape Miyako Bay, but the Takao, still crippled by engine failure, was beached and scuttled close by. The daring attempt to capture the Imperial flagship ended in failure, allowing the Imperial Army to land and proceed to Hakodate for the final battle of the war. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_nagashima Oda Nobunaga considered the rebellious Ikko-Ikki a very real threat, and one he would have to overcome if he was to rule Japan. The Ikko-Ikki was a religious fundamentalist sect made up of priests, peasants and farmers who fought for independent rule and rallied against the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_samurai"]]samurai/url? warlords who were ravaging their land. In 1571, Nobunaga launched a campaign against them by attacking their Nagashima complex. However, his men were hindered by the poor, muddy terrain which left them vulnerable, forcing a retreat. A second attempt was made in 1573, but this time a heavy downpour drenched the Oda army’s matchlocks, and a swift counter-attack by the Ikko-Ikki once again forced him to withdraw. In 1574 Oda took a different approach, this time bolstering his land forces with a naval fleet commanded by Kuki Yoshitaka. Kuki’s ships bombarded the Ikko-Ikki defences with fire arrows, whilst also cutting them off from any supplies or reinforcements. Meanwhile, Oda’s land forces captured their forts until he had gained control of the west side of the island. Having established this foothold, the Ikko-Ikki back were forced back until they were cornered in a small area of the island. Cut off from supplies and any chance of relief, the Ikko-Ikki starved whilst a tall palisade was built around them. Oda set fire to the palisade, burning alive everyone inside. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_nagashino In 1575, a combined Oda and Tokugawa force of 38,000 was sent to alleviate Nagashino Castle, then besieged by Takeda Katsuyori. Though the Takeda army of 15,000 was vastly outnumbered, his cavalry was incredibly powerful and were dreaded by the allies, who had previously suffered defeat at their hands on the field at Mikatagahara. Oda Nobunaga himself possessed 3,000 matchlock troops, believing that a solid wall of arquebusiers could stop the Takeda cavalry charge in its tracks. The allied forces were positioned in front of the Rengogawa River and Oda Nobunaga built a wooden stockade to protect his men from the brunt of the enemy charge. Takeda Katsuyori sent his cavalry to attack, believing that the heavy rain would render most of the guns useless and that those that did work could not be reloaded quickly enough for a second barrage. However, Nobunaga’s matchlocks remained dry and unleashed their fire upon the Takeda cavalry as they slowed down to negotiate the steep banks of the river, resulting in the routing of the Takeda army and the lifting of the siege at Nagashino. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_okehazama In 1560, Imagawa Yoshimoto, a great warlord, marched an army of approximately 25,000 towards Kyoto. He had spread word that his army had far greater numbers in order to strike fear into the hearts of potential challengers, and his army had already taken the Oda [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clan's/url? border fortresses of Washizu and Marune. Oda Nobunaga was the ruler of the Oda province, but his rise to power had been controversial and he was still unproven. He sent out scouts, who reported back that the army was celebrating their recent victories with dance and drink at a forest gorge called Dengaku-hazama. Although his army was vastly outnumbered, Oda rightly suspected that the reports of Imagawa’s numbers had been greatly exaggerated and realised that, while they were camped at Dengaku-hazama, there was a chance they could be taken by surprise. Ignoring the pleas of his advisors to surrender, he set up a small army in front of the gorge that carried many banners to give the appearance that his main force had arrived. Then, Oda’s main force of 3000 sneaked through the forest to the rear of Imagawa’s camp. At this point a large storm erupted, enabling them to get close without detection. Once it cleared, Oda’s army rushed into the camp. The Imagawa army was indeed still celebrating, was caught by surprise and were so shocked that they fled in all directions - their discipline and training entirely forgotten. This left Imagawa Yoshimoto unprotected in his tent and still unaware that anything was wrong. He had been inspecting the heads he had collected as trophies from the last battle and, upon hearing the commotion, simply thought the drunken revelry had gotten out of control. As he left the tent, he mistook one of Nobunaga’s men as his own and ordered him back to his post. He realised his error in time to dodge the samurai’s spear, but was quickly beheaded by another. By the time the battle was over, only two of the Imagawa officers remained and, knowing they were beaten, they joined Oda Nobunaga’s force along with their surviving troops. One of these men was Tokugawa Ieyasu, who remained a lifelong ally of Oda Nobunaga as he began his own brilliant career trajectory. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_osaka_castle Unexpected defeat at the hands of Satsuma and Choshu armies left the Shogunate reeling. To make matters worse, Tokugawa Yoshinobu promised to command his forces during the next phase, but then he fled Osaka Castle upon seeing the Imperial banner, shaken by the Emperor’s apparent endorsement of his enemies. Nevertheless, as the Imperial army approached Osaka, intending to burn the symbol of an outmoded Shogunate to the ground, Yoshinobu’s remaining troops deployed to defend their castle to the last man… True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_sekigahara Before his death, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, unifier of Japan, established the Council of Five Elders to rule as regents until his heir Hideyori, came of age. However, one of the elders, Tokugawa Ieyasu, was unable to accept Toyotomi Hideyori as [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_shogun"]]Shogun/url?, as the Toyotomi were originally of peasant stock. Wanting power for himself, Tokugawa pitted himself against the loyalist council members, including Ishida Mitsunari. Soon there were two camps; Ieyasu’s eastern side and Mitsunari’s western side. Both sides tried to enlist the aid of Kobayakawa Hideaki and other more moderate daimyos. At the Battle of Sekigahara, Ieyasu and Mitsunari’s armies clashed, each awaiting Hideaki to join their side in the battle. As his position overlooked them, Hideaki could either surround Ieyasu or bolster his army. Realising that his involvement was crucial to the outcome, Hideaki ignored Ishida Mitsunari's signal to join him, but did not rush to help the Tokugawa either. To coax him into action, Tokugawa Ieyasu ordered his troops to fire upon Hideaki’s, a gamble which paid off when he promptly chose to join Ieyasu! The subsequent assault on eastern positions caused four generals to immediately switch sides, severely weakening the eastern forces, which soon fell apart. In the aftermath of the battle several eastern generals committed suicide, their leader Ishida Mitsunari was executed and many others lost control of their fiefdoms in favour of those who supported the Tokugawa. Ieyasu himself went on to become Shogun, bringing the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_sengoku_jidai"]]Sengoku Jidai/url? to a close. The Tokugawa clan ruled Japan until the Meiji Restoration in 1867. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_toba_fushimi Following the anti-Shogunate political intrigues set in motion by the Satsuma and Choshu domains, Tokugawa Yoshinobu, the Shogun, sent his army to report his suspicions to the Emperor. At least, that was the pretext. There had recently been much provocation of Shogunate forces in the capital city, Kyoto, and it is thought that Tokugawa intended to remove the radical elements from the Imperial Court. As his army approached Kyoto they found a Satsuma force blocking the route. Armed with new Western artillery, the Satsuma and their allies, the Choshu, had no intention of allowing the Shogun’s army into Kyoto. They raised the banner of the Emperor against the army of the Shogun. War became inevitable. After two bloody days of fighting the Shogun’s army were in retreat to his base at the mighty Osaka Castle. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_hist_battles_ueno Following his surrender of the capital and his resignation, Tokugawa Yoshinobu, the former Shogun, retired to his family’s Kan’ei-ji Temple at Ueno. However, the Shogitai, the forces loyal to his office, refused to give up the fight so easily. They continued to harass the Imperial army as it occupied Edo. Eventually, and despite a disparity of numbers, the Imperial forces, chiefly the Satsuma, attacked Kan’ei-ji. Despite heavy casualties, the Satsuma managed to pin down the entrenched Shogitai until the Choshu, the Satsuma’s allies, charged the defenders’ rear. Although outnumbered, the Imperial army’s use of the most modern available guns tipped the balance in their favour. Most of the Shogitai leaders escaped by sea, including the abbot of the temple, Prince Yoshihisa, who was actually a member of the Imperial family and a candidate for the Imperial throne if the Shogunate won.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_agents_subterfuge Subterfuge agents are single characters who are used to commit acts of espionage on the campaign map. They are able to act upon enemy armies or buildings but cannot go inside them, so always remain visible and easy to locate. It is possible for your own agents to enter your armies and castle towns or settlements (in Fall of the Samurai) up to a maximum of three agents per army or castle town. When there are agents embedded inside castle towns or settlements the effects provided by their presence gradually diminish - so a second agent provides a further 50% of the effects of the first, and a third provides a further 25%. Before carrying out an ordered action a prompt will appear, requiring confirmation. Every agent action has a monetary cost associated with it, which is stated on the prompt.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_army_attack_siege In order to gain control of a garrisoned and fortified castle town (or settlement in Fall of the Samurai) it is often necessary to lay siege. During a siege your troops surround the castle and can either attempt to starve the defenders into capitulation or launch a direct assault. The besieged force may also choose to sally out to meet you on the battlefield, but be aware that defeating them will not automatically result in the surrender of the castle to you. Victory in a siege turns ownership of the province over to your clan. You then have the option to occupy peacefully or loot the castle.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_army_fragments_merge It is possible to merge two friendly armies together when neither is at full strength (a full strength army is twenty units in size). Merge by left-clicking on your first army and then right-clicking on the second. The first army will then walk over to the second and the two will merge together. If there are twenty units or more in either army the merge scroll will appear, so you can choose which units to merge into a single force and which to leave behind. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_army_fragments_replenish An army that has suffered casualties or [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/030_enc_manual_army_attrition.html"]]attrition/url? requires fresh recruits to replenish troop numbers. If an army contains a general and is on friendly territory, unit replenishment will occur automatically. Without a general, an army can only replenish within a castle town or settlement (in Fall of the Samurai) belonging to its own clan. The closer an army is to a province with fresh recruits in it, the faster the rate of replenishment will be. If no replenishment occurs it may be because the army is in an enemy province or an area of attrition. The rate of replenishment can be improved by [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/016_enc_manual_hud_management.html#enc_text_manual_hud_management_commissions"]]making/url? one of your generals “Commissioner for Supply”, as can the acquisition of certain [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/043_enc_manual_traits.html#enc_text_manual_retainers"]]retainers/url?.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_abilities_square The yari square is an ability used by yari [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/018e_enc_manual_actions_campaign_construction.html#enc_text_manual_actions_campaign_construction_legendary_heroes"]]heroes/url? to deflect attacks by cavalry units. Once activated, the unit forms a tight, immobile square formation with their spears presented - like a human porcupine. Although the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/052_enc_manual_battle_conflict_morale.html"]]morale/url? of such a tightly-packed unit is very high, they are extremely vulnerable to missile attacks. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_abilities_stand This ability is available to experienced generals, giving them an increased radius of influence that improves the melee attack and rate of fire of any of his own units caught within it. Allied troops do not benefit from the effects. The general sets up a command post with his bodyguard clustered around him, indicating that he will not consider retreat or surrender. This takes a while to set up and take down again, so instant toggling on or off is not possible. The general cannot use any other abilities whilst stand & fight is activated. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_abilities_suppression_fire Suppression fire is a technique whereby an infantry unit lays down a curtain of fire as fast as they can, increasing the rate of fire but reducing accuracy. Enemy units caught by suppression fire have their movement speed reduced and [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/052_enc_manual_battle_conflict_morale.html"]]morale/url? lowered. After the ability expires there is a cooling down time before the next activation in order to limit its exploitability. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_abilities_volley The rapid volley ability is used by [[url="encyclopedia/units/inf_missile_matchlock_samurai.html"]]matchlock-armed samurai/url?, enabling them to greatly increase their rate of missile fire against a single target. Once activated, there is only a short time available to strike before the ability burns out. It is then unavailable for a fixed period, thereby limiting its exploitability. Rapid volleys are not available at the very start of a battle. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_abilities_wall The yari wall is a technique employed by [[url="encyclopedia/units/inf_spear_yari_ashigaru.html"]]yari ashigaru/url?, enabling them to lock together and present their weapons in a single direction. Whilst the ability is active the unit moves and turns slower. Attacks made to the front of a yari wall are far less effective; cavalry charges made against them are practically useless. Attacks made to the rear or flanks of a unit are far more damaging whilst the yari wall is presented, so the ability is best used when several units are close together and protected by cavalry. True

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_capture Following victory in a battle, and dependent on having an empty space for a unit in your army, there is a chance that the vanquished enemy's [[url="encyclopedia/units/art_fire_projecting_mangonels.html"]]siege weapons/url? will be captured by your men. If this occurs they will appear on the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/032_enc_manual_ui_battle.html#enc_text_manual_ui_battle_post"]]post-battle statistics panel/url?. The crew will be replaced by your own men. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_controls_balance During a battle the balance of power bar tracks the relative strength of your force against the enemy's. Mouse over it to see the units remaining on each side. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_controls_compass The manoeuvre compass is used for fine-tuning orders on the battlefield. The three arrows within its top half can be used to direct a unit or group straight ahead, or turn left or right. The button in the centre of the lower half causes the selected unit to step backwards. Holding down this button will make them turn and walk backwards. Clicking and holding down the rank and file buttons on either side change the depth of a unit's formation by increasing or decreasing the number of rows the troops stand in. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_controls_radar The radar map allows an aerial view of the battle detailing the position of your units or ships and those enemies that are visible, and also topography to assist in planning an attack. Use the plus and minus buttons to zoom in or out and the button in the corner to minimise or maximise the map. Remember to keep checking the map for enemy reinforcements. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_controls_speed The game speed controls are used to adjust the speed of the battle. You can pause the game or put it into slow motion by clicking on buttons to the left or return it to normal by clicking on the central button again. The two positions further right are for double and quadruple speed respectively. Remember that you can use these controls instead of tiring your troops out by running to engage the enemy. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_controls_timer The battle timer shows how much time is left before a battle ends. The attacker must [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/052_enc_manual_battle_conflict_morale.html#enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_modes_routing"]]rout/url? or destroy the defender within the time limit or lose the battle. To claim victory the defender has only to keep the attacker at bay. It is possible to turn off the battle timer in the game settings of the game menu, accessed either by pressing Esc or clicking on the game menu button from the campaign map or battlefield, or through the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/003a_enc_ui_frontend_grand_clan.html"]]clan selection screen/url?. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_crossings_attack When attacking across a river, try to soften up the enemy on the far bank by bombarding them with missiles first. Once they are weakened, your assault has a better chance of succeeding. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_crossings_bridges If there is a bridge or ford crossing a river on the campaign map, and an army is standing on it when they are attacked, the resulting battle will occur at the crossing, so the battlefield will feature the river and at least one bridge or ford. Remember if you are the defender that you may have to defend two crossings, or the second one could be used to your advantage. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_crossings_defence When defending a river crossing it may be best to stand back in order to stay out of range of enemy missile troops. When their main force starts to cross, rush a couple of units up to stop them. Also be wary of multiple crossings. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_fatigue As a battle progresses, the units involved gradually become exhausted due to the high level of physical effort required to run and fight for such a protracted length of time. Once a unit becomes exhausted, even moving slowly becomes a great effort, leaving them particularly vulnerable to cavalry charges. In order to combat fatigue, do not run everywhere and ensure that your troops are adequately reinforced before they become exhausted. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_forests Be careful when fighting in woods or forests, cavalry will be far less effective due to the restrictions on movement provided by tree cover. Similarly, [[url="encyclopedia/units/art_fire_projecting_mangonels.html"]]siege weapons/url? can be fired when deployed in a wood or forest, but their effectiveness will be greatly reduced due to the proximity of the trees.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_formations_naval_boshin_abreast The line abreast formation arranges your grouped ships into a single line, abreast of each other – hence the name. It will still work with ships that fire broadsides, but you must manually move them into position to fire. Line abreast particularly suits ships with guns mounted in their noses, such as the Kotetsu. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_formations_naval_boshin_astern The line astern formation arranges your grouped ships one behind the other. As the ships move past the enemy they will fire off a broadside one by one. This formation particularly suits ships with large numbers of guns on their broadsides. True

True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_gatling_guns The Gatling gun is an early type of machine gun that works by the cranking of a handle that rotates multiple barrels, loads and then fires in the same moment. It was the first ever reliable continuous fire weapon, and devastatingly effective. It can be [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/018a_enc_manual_actions_campaign_recruitment.html"]]acquired/url? (and its crew recruited) and fired in the same way as other artillery pieces, but can also be controlled by you directly from a first person point of view – at the cost of your control of other units of course! Gatling guns have a very high rate of fire, are highly accurate, can cause great damage. Its crew have a high [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/052_enc_manual_battle_conflict_morale.html"]]morale/url? but will be slaughtered if forced into melee. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_gatling_guns_3rd You can go in to third person mode at any time by pressing the H key. This allows you to control any artillery piece, including the Gatling gun and tower defences, with greater accuracy. This does come at the cost of controlling the rest of your army, so unless used carefully you can as easily lose a battle as win it. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_group_formations [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/050a_enc_manual_battle_conflict_formations_land.html"]]Units/url? or [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/050b_enc_manual_battle_conflict_formations_naval.html"]]ships/url? that have been formed into groups can be set into fixed formations designed to enable certain types of strategy. Notice the group formation options slide out from the side of the screen when a group is selected. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_groups Groups are useful for giving identical orders with a single command. Two or more units can be grouped together by selecting them and clicking on the group button. Their unit cards will be ordered together under a numbered tab. Select the tab to give identical orders to every unit in the group.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_groups_selection A selection group is an easy way to select a unit or group of units by pressing a single key on your keyboard. Create up to ten selection groups by clicking on the unit or group of units in question and pressing G. However, when grouped units will not behave as a group until you have selected and locked their formation. You can do this by clicking on the group formation toggle buttons that appear on the left-hand side of the screen. A group that is locked will then manoeuvre whilst maintaining its formation. This is useful for keeping all units of a specific type under control. Selecting a different unit group moves your camera view to that group. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_modes_fire Fire-at-will is a mode that allows your missile troops to pick their own targets rather than only firing when specifically ordered to do so. It can be toggled on and off with the button in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Keeping it toggled off helps preserve ammunition, but if you take your eye off them they may be forced into melee. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_modes_guard Guard mode ensures that [[url="encyclopedia/units/inf_spear_yari_samurai.html"]]yari/url? or [[url="encyclopedia/units/inf_heavy_naginata_samurai.html"]]naginata/url? infantry fight defensively, try to maintain their formation when attacked and don't pursue the enemy if they run away. It can be toggled on and off by clicking on the guard mode button that appears in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen when the correct unit type is selected. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_modes_halt Pressing this button cancels orders and makes selected units or ships stop where they are. This is a quicker alternative to giving them a different order. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_modes_loose Although available to all units, loose formation is best used to increase the target area of missile units, make them more difficult for enemy missile troops to target (as they not standing closely packed together), and by cavalry to more easily ride down routers. Loose formation is not suitable for charges of any kind, as a closely-packed mass of men is crucial to the impact required to smash through a line. It can be toggled on and off by clicking on the loose formation button that appears in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen when a unit is selected. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_modes_melee Pressing the melee mode button locks the selected melee-capable units into melee mode, so all attack orders will result in a hand-to-hand attack until you click on the melee button again. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_modes_naval_fire_support In Fall of the Samurai if it is possible for your army to call in fire support from a nearby fleet, there will be a naval fire support button on the battle UI to issue a bombardment order. After clicking on it, simply left-click on the area of the battlefield you wish to attack. Once issued, the command to launch fire support can be rescinded by right-clicking anywhere on the land or sea away from the user interface. Fire support is a naturally inaccurate business, so may result in your own units coming under friendly fire and taking casualties. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_modes_rallying There is a chance that a routing unit can be persuaded to stay on the battlefield via the general's rally [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/060_enc_manual_battle_conflict_abilities.html"]]ability/url?. To rally, click on the rally ability button with the general selected. The routers must be within the general's radius of influence for the rally to take effect.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_battle_conflict_morale Morale is a measure of a unit's confidence and spirit during a battle. During a lengthy, protracted melee, the morale of the men is severely tested, and they will break and rout if it gets too low. This is indicated by the coloured bar at the top of each unit’s banner; when it is green morale is healthy, when it turns yellow a morale penalty is in place, when it turns red the unit is wavering and about to break and rout. The presence of the general alone can improve morale and highly-trained, elite units have much higher morale from the outset. Heroes also improve morale of those around them by their presence.

Unsolicited gifts of cash can help to improve diplomatic relations too, which is useful if you want to keep a rival [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clan/url? happy just long enough to prepare your stab in the back! True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_peace Use this option to broker peace with a [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clan/url? you are at war with. Note that it will often be necessary to "sweeten" a peace treaty with other concessions such as a [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/015d_enc_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_money.html"]]payment/url? or [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/015g_enc_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_hostages.html"]]hostage/url?, especially if your clan was the aggressor of the conflict. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_threaten The threaten option is a diplomatic tool to help you get your own way in certain situations. The effectiveness of a threat greatly depends on the military strength of the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clan/url? you are threatening relative to your own, so you must not use the option without fully considering what it means to do so - making threats you cannot or choose not to back up will result in them becoming less effective each time you use them. It must also be borne in mind when making threats that the threatened party will not look kindly upon those who like to throw their military weight around - your [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/015_enc_manual_hud_diplomacy.html"]]diplomatic relations/url? will suffer drastically, eventually leading to war between you. If you are threatened by another clan, refusal to comply with their wishes may mean they instantly declare war on you, so you must be sure of your military strength before doing so. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_trade_agreement A trade agreement is a deal between two [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clans/url? agreeing the type and price of commodities to be traded. The details of such an agreement are not visible to the player, you simply set it up - the rest of the negotiation is implied by the other party's acceptance. Once agreed, a trade route is opened between the territory of your clan and that of your trade partner, enabling goods to be traded straight away for mutual advantage and profit. A trade agreement can be both offered and demanded. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_trade_embargo A trade embargo is an agreement between two or more [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clans/url? not to trade with a specified third clan. A trade embargo can be both offered and demanded. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_vassals Vassals are [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clans/url? who agree to exchange 50% of their income and unlimited [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/015c1_enc_manual_hud_diplomacy_access.html"]]military access/url? in return for the protection the military might of their overlord affords. The net result of this is that vassals may find themselves dragged into conflicts not of their own design, and unlike regular [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/015c_enc_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_alliance.html"]]allies/url?, cannot decline a request to fight for their overlord without automatically declaring war on them. Clans do not usually offer themselves as vassals, the situation is generally forced upon them as part of a diplomatic deal that is more of a thinly-veiled threat than a fair and balanced offer. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_war_declare The declare war option is used to officially open armed hostilities with another [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clan/url?, as opposed to simply marching into their territory to stake your claim. Never declare war without first considering the consequences, as an ill-prepared assault could have consequences resulting in your reduction to [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/015e_enc_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_vassals.html"]]vassal/url? status or worse, the annihilation of your clan. Note that when making your declaration the check box asking [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/015c_enc_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_alliance.html"]]allies/url? to join you is defaulted to yes. Your allies will assess the situation and may agree to declare war, but might just as easily break off your alliance, leaving you to fend for yourself. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_war_join At any time during a conflict, the join war option can be used to request that an ally declares war on a [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clan/url? you are already fighting against. This means you can look for new [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/015c_enc_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_alliance.html"]]allies/url? to help if the war is not necessarily going your way. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_diplomacy_relations What one [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clan/url? thinks of another is characterised by diplomatic relations - friendly, indifferent, unfriendly, hostile.

True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_events_dilemmas_religion Periodically, European traders - the nanban - will try to instigate trade with you. If you accept their overtures and construct a nanban trade port it will eventually be possible to change your clan’s official religion to Christianity. Conversion will give you access to cheaper matchlock ashigaru that will take less time to recruit, but may alienate you from own people and, to some extent, traditional Buddhist clans. However, it is possible to keep Buddhist buildings in your provinces to appease the more traditional elements of your population. Christianity will also enable you to construct a nanban quarter at your port, giving you access to European cannon and ships. Convert religion by going to the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/016_enc_manual_hud_management.html#enc_text_manual_hud_management_family"]]family & council tab/url? on the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/016_enc_manual_hud_management.html"]]clan management panel/url? and clicking on the dedicated button in the top left-hand corner. Remember that if you capture a province containing buildings of a different religion that their influence will still be felt, so it is best to demolish them and ensure an adequate garrison is in place to manage the shift to your own religion. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_events_missions From time to time missions are issued, either by your [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clan/url?, the Shogun or, if appropriate, your European trade partners. Mission objectives may be reviewed from the objectives list beneath the radar map or from the summary tab on the clan management panel. Although there is no penalty for failure, successful completion of a mission results in a reward, often in the form of bonus effects for your clan. If a mission becomes unachievable due to factors outside your control it will be cancelled automatically. True

[[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/024_enc_manual_clan_fame.html#enc_text_manual_boshin_clan_fame"]]Fame/url? still gauges how powerful - and dangerous - your clan is perceived as being within Japan. When fame reaches a certain level you must choose to rally behind one power or the other, declaring war against all clans with allegiance to the opposition and fighting to defeat them. Alternatively, you can attempt to assume personal control of the country, which will lead to all but your most loyal allies turning against you. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_events_victory_gempei The three great clans of the Gempei War are each split into two families. The principle object of the campaign game is to achieve hegemony over the other major families and minor lords, either through conquest or by spreading your family’s [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/012b_enc_manual_hud_events_victory.html#enc_text_manual_hud_events_victory_gempei_influence"]]influence/url? throughout the provinces. Fame still gauges how powerful - and dangerous - your family is perceived as being within Japan, but there is no Shogunate to overthrow in order to achieve victory. If you become too powerful Emperor Go Shirakawa will declare you an enemy of the state, at which point all other families will move to attack you - including your “sister” family. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_events_victory_gempei_influence In Rise of the Samurai influence is a measure of the relative popularity of the major protagonists amongst the provinces. There are three categories of influence, one for each pair of clan families.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_management_adoptions All male family members automatically become generals as soon as they come of age. In addition, new generals will be periodically offered for adoption into your clan as individuals distinguish themselves in battle or volunteer to lead your armies. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_hud_management_commissioners There are commissioner positions that can be allocated to family members and other [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clan/url? members such as generals. Commissions are divided into two military and two civic positions. The military positions are warfare - the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_daimyo"]]daimyo's/url? chief of staff, who reduces recruitment costs; supply - in charge of equipping and supplying the army in the field, who increases replenishment rate of depleted units. The civic ones are: development - in charge of construction, who reduces construction costs, and finance - in charge of the clan's coffers, who increases the tax rate across your territory. The effects of the commissions are increased depending on the rank of the men holding them, so a four star general makes a more powerful commissioner than one with a single star. True

The first generation always comprises of the daimyo and his wife, the second his children and the third their children. When a daimyo dies, his chosen heir replaces him; the new daimyo's siblings are removed from the family tree but remain in play if they are generals. Children of the new daimyo's brothers never become generals or daughters and are removed from the game.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_multiplayer_avatar_traits As an avatar learns skills, he will acquire various traits that loosely reflect the extent to which he has developed in each of the avatar skill tree branches. Your avatar will also gain a reputation based on the balance of armies he tends to field, and this will also be reflected in a trait. The ‘Dishonourable Coward’ trait is awarded if you disconnect from too many battles before they are completed. This trait will disappear if your ratio of completed battles improves.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_multiplayer_clan_map_corruption The more provinces a clan owns, the more difficult it is to conquer and maintain control of new provinces due to corruption and the logistical difficulties of managing and supplying a greater number of provinces.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_multiplayer_clan_map_corruption_filters The clan competition also contains a set of filters to help plot your clan’s path to domination. The “clan influence points for victory” filter shows you the total number of clan influence points that the selected clan will gain for winning a battle in a particular province.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_multiplayer_clan_map_tiers The clan competition is arranged into several tiers – tier one being the top tier.

At the end of each season, the clans at the top of a game world are promoted to the next highest tier and the clans at the bottom are demoted to the next lowest tier.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_multiplayer_co_op_campaign A co-operative campaign allows two players to play a full campaign against AI opponents. It is largely similar to a standard multiplayer campaign, with the addition of a shared victory condition: both co-op partners must retain possession of their capital, but required provincial conquests are shared between them. Diplomatic states are also shared between partners, meaning that if one declares war against an AI clan, their partner will also be at war with that AI clan. Similarly, ceasefires and alliances will also be shared. Within a partnership, the field of view on the campaign map will be shared, including line of sight from units and buildings, and the unveiling of the hidden sections of the campaign map. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_multiplayer_co_op_unit_sharing During a co-op campaign, it is possible for players to share troops during their battles. Simply select a unit on the battlefield in the usual way, then click the gift units button in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Control of those units will be transferred to your co-op partner for the duration of that battle. This process works both ways so that partners can swap troops back and forth between them as often as they like during a battle. Even if one player has no troops involved, he can still enter the battle and be ready to receive shared units whenever his partner is ready. Once the battle is over, shared units return to the control of the partner who recruited them. True

You can now find an equally-matched opponent via the match-made battle button. You can choose to fight a 1-on-1 battle or participate in a team battle.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_multiplayer_veteran_skill_upgrades_4 For many units, the clan skill upgrades panel also includes several clan specialism skills which not only cost more clan tokens to learn, but also require your avatar to be a member of a clan specialising in that unit type. Clan specialisms are sword, bow, spear and cavalry. Joining a clan with a different specialism will result in the cancellation of any elite skills and the skill point being refunded, though any clan tokens spent will not be refunded. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_public_order Obedience to the rule of the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_daimyo"]]daimyo/url? is measured in public order. The factors that affect it are displayed on the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/021_enc_manual_ui_province.html"]]province details panel/url?, and include elements such as castle level, garrison size and the size of the tax burden placed on the populace. If unhappiness begins to outweigh happiness and repression at any point then the resultant unrest can lead to rebellion, if left unchecked. Keep [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/013_enc_manual_hud_finances.html"]]taxes/url? at reasonable levels, maintain sufficient food levels and ensure that castle towns or settlements (in Fall of the Samurai) are garrisoned to stop public order bubbling over into rioting or worse, full-scale rebellion.<p><p>Click [[url="encyclopedia/video/s2_bosh_tut_camp_essentials_occupation.html#s2_bosh_tut_camp_essentials_16"]]here/url? to view a video tutorial about this subject. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_public_order_happiness The overall happiness of a population is influenced by a variety of different contributing factors, including tax levels, [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/018e_enc_manual_actions_campaign_construction.html#enc_text_manual_actions_campaign_construction_castle"]]food shortages/url?, the presence of entertainment and religious buildings, and repression through garrison size. Rebellion becomes a risk when the people are so unhappy that repression can no longer contain public order. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_public_order_rebellions There are two types of rebellion. A general whose loyalty has dropped too low may attempt to form his own [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_clan"]]clan/url? rather than defect to another. If this happens, he will raise an army and try to capture the nearest castle town. The army will mostly consist of [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_samurai"]]samurai/url? with some [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_ashigaru"]]ashigaru/url?.

In the case of a [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_buddhism"]]Buddhist/url? rebellion, the army will mostly consist of monks and ashigaru; a Christian rebellion will mostly consist of ashigaru with some samurai. The size of the rebel army is always linked to the level of the castle town or settlement (in Fall of the Samurai) in the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_province"]]province/url? from which it has spawned.<p><p>Click [[url="encyclopedia/video/s2_bosh_tut_camp_essentials_occupation.html#s2_bosh_tut_camp_essentials_19"]]here/url? to view a video tutorial about this subject. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_public_order_repression Repression is the enforcement of your rule by the presence of garrison troops. The grey pips in the public order section of the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/021_enc_manual_ui_province.html"]]province details panel/url? represent repression through intimidation from garrisoned units. Whilst it is useful to keep the population in order, rebellion following a period of heavy repression can be difficult to suppress. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_public_order_riots When unhappiness becomes too great the peasants will riot. The best ways to stop a riot, and prevent it from escalating into a rebellion, are to either reduce taxes to appease the rioters or increase the garrison, which in turns increases repression and crushes the riot. Factors which may cause a riot are: low daimyo [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/026_enc_manual_clan_honour.html"]]honour/url?, [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/018e_enc_manual_actions_campaign_construction.html#enc_text_manual_actions_campaign_construction_castle"]]food shortages/url?, [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/013_enc_manual_hud_finances.html"]]taxation/url?, the presence of rampaging enemy armies in a province, and [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/045a_enc_manual_agent_actions_religious.html"]]religious unrest/url?.

Japan has long felt the influence of Buddhism from the mainland; but now, with the arrival of European traders, the "new" religion of Christianity is slowly gaining a foothold, clan by clan, as ships arrive bringing goods from the west. Whereas [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/002b_enc_glossary.html#enc_glossary_buddhism"]]Buddhist/url? clans use [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/045_enc_manual_agents_religious.html#enc_text_manual_agents_religious_monks"]]monks/url? to propagate enlightened thought, those clans that have converted to Christianity field [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/045_enc_manual_agents_religious.html#enc_text_manual_agents_religious_missionaries"]]missionaries/url? instead to spread the word of God throughout the country.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_retainers In addition to [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/042_enc_manual_skills.html"]]skills/url?, as characters gain experience they will acquire retainers - followers and items that further shape their personality and abilities. The retainers available at any one time are chosen from a pool existing on a per-province basis. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_skill_tree The skill tree is where the experience gained by generals and agents during a campaign can be used to acquire useful skills. As a character successfully carries out their functions, they gain experience points that gradually increase their ranking stars; each new star enabling multiple skill choices. Many skills also have several levels - each with increased effects - so it is possible to use experience to increase the level of a chosen skill, as opposed to selecting an entirely new one. True

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_trade Trade is managed via the trade tab on the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/013_enc_manual_hud_finances.html"]]finance panel/url?, where details of the current prices of all resources produced across your territory are displayed along with information about how these are exported to our [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/015b_enc_manual_hud_diplomacy_options_trade.html"]]trade partners/url? - together with the profit made from exporting to each one. Also shown are the resources available to you, both those you have gained from your trade partners and those you are yet to acquire. Certain advanced units and buildings require access to these resources before they can be recruited or constructed. Excess resources that do not get exported to other clans are sold within your own lands at a lower price.<p><p>Click [[url="encyclopedia/video/s2_bosh_tut_camp_advanced_economy.html#s2_bosh_tut_campaign_advanced_21"]]here/url? to view a video tutorial about this subject.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_trade_posts In Shogun 2 a trade post is the means through which you can obtain special resources from distant foreign powers who do not otherwise appear in the game. Trade posts are positioned out to sea away from the coastline of Japan. In order to begin this trade, [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/018e_enc_manual_actions_campaign_construction.html#enc_text_manual_actions_campaign_construction_infrastructure_ports"]]build a trade ship/url? and send it to a trade post icon by right-clicking on it.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_traits In addition to the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/042_enc_manual_skills.html"]]skills/url? chosen for a character, he or she is also subject to the development of character traits that are a direct result of their behaviour (i.e. - bravery, cowardice) or the situations they find themselves in (i.e. - alcoholism, madness, promiscuity, boredom or all of these things). A negative trait is acquired gradually from a certain pattern of behaviour and can usually be expunged by a continued display of the opposite behaviour. True
encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_ui_battle The battle panel presents you with several options for resolving the upcoming battle - fighting on the battlefield or seascape, resolving the battle automatically via a comparison of each force's statistics and withdrawing from the fight. If you withdraw when attacked there is a good chance that the attacking force will attack you again. If you have attacked a castle town (or settlement in Fall of the Samurai) there will also be options to continue the [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/028_enc_manual_army_attack.html#enc_text_manual_army_attack_siege"]]siege/url? or break it off. If you have more than twenty units they will automatically be fielded as a single force.

encyclopedia_blocks_content_enc_text_manual_ui_battle_3d_night A general can sometimes choose to fight at night. It is, naturally, much more difficult to see what is going on at night, so the range of missile weapons is reduced, and an army will suffer a [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/052_enc_manual_battle_conflict_morale.html"]]morale/url? penalty if not led by a general who has the “Night Fighter” [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/043_enc_manual_traits.html"]]trait/url?. Any reinforcements will not be available in order to reflect the communication difficulties that arise when attempting to conduct a battle in the dark. Generals can acquire the ability to fight night battles by gaining the “Stealthy” [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/042_enc_manual_skills.html"]]skill/url?. They can be fought at sea after mastering the “Way of the Sea” [[url="encyclopedia/how_to_play/014_enc_manual_hud_arts.html"]]art/url?.
