Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition Walkthrough
Table of Contents
To make this mission special, Sakamoto is far outnumbered. But, there are rice paddies to capture. Grab as many as possible while moving up the steps to face off against another evil general.
There’s one extra gimmick to complicate things – lots of skulls. Skulls line the grassy area between steps. Assault up the stairs and get those skulls before the greens do.
Move troops up the left staircase, and let the enemy cavalry eat the skulls in the center. Eating skulls will summon two deadly Oni. Those green cavalry are dead-meat. Don’t fall for the trap!
Take the Soldier Shrine and Salamander Shrine on the left before attempting to the the shrines or paddies on the right.
To make things even worse, new Oni will appear every 3 turns. This battle can get chaotic, very quickly.
Avoid the Oni whenever possible. To maximize Sakomoto, summon the Salamander and Fox Monks while using the cavalry to haunt rice paddies.
Earning rice to use with spells is more important than summoning new soldiers. Make the Monks demonic with the General, while fighting through the enemy’s remaining forces. Try to draw them down into the mid-section where Oni will destroy them.
Use the Fox Monk’s Revive ability or Holy Shield to push the attack, while the Salamander using Lightning Storm to wipe out large groups of soldiers. Awaken Sakomoto early, he’ll earn max HP just by eating skulls on the way up to the enemy general.
