Easy costume pieces

Use the following trick to unlock all the costumes pieces without having to replay a level repeatedly. Play a level that unlocks the desired costume. Just before the level ends, select “Option”, and save the game on file A. Complete the level to get a random costume piece. Then, save the game on file B. Load save file A, and you will be back on that level. Complete the level again to get another random costume piece. Save the game on file B, load file A, and repeat until all costume pieces are unlocked.

Diao Chan’s Plan secret event

When you become a ruler in Empire mode, be wary of the officer Diao Chan. Staying true to her namesake and Story mode, she has only one reason to enter your employ. When obtained, and a message stating, “Hearing of your deeds….” or something to that effect, “…Diao Chan decided to join you”, dismiss her. She will steal some of your officers in this random event that you cannot control or stop once in motion, saying “I can finally put my father’s plan into action” or something similar. Note: If it instead states “Diao Chan entered your employ”, the event most likely should not happen.

Lu Meng’s Training special event

When in Ruler mode and you obtain Lu Meng, he asks you to leave on a journey to train and learn. You have no say in the matter, but for a few months, his troop count falls to 1 (as in just himself). You are free to use him, but this is not wise, considering the effects of troop numbers in battles, which is very important compared to Officer mode. When he returns, he obtains a second ability, “Flames” (though it may be random), and his troop count returns to normal.
