Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition Walkthrough
Table of Contents
This war is getting out of hand. Kurokawa sacrifices his own men to create Demon Fox Monks. These upgrades units can heal twice in a turn, and have a series of helpful spells.
Akamoto is also outnumbered. Push to the Soldier Shrine on the left and capture it while grabbing paddies to support the fight.
Split the red army to capture rice paddies on the left and right, but the Soldier Shrine at the top of the map (left side) is the most important, as it’s the easier to reach early on.
Send two units to each. The purples will send cavalry and arches, but never together to one location. Prioritize targets and take defeat each of the intruders. Don’t waste time attacking if they won’t be killed. Leave damaged units on captured rice paddies to heal up between turns, giving Akamoto the home field advantage.
After the first round of enemies moves out, the demonic Fox Monks will try their luck. These guys can’t attack offensively. If they move down on their own, don’t waste scrolls on them, focus on the deadlier enemies first.
Stand in Spirit Walls -always- while on the islands. A single attack from infantry or cavalry can send samurai into the water. But, that also makes these areas perfect defensive positions. Summon infantry to guard and place them in Spirit Walls, then knock incoming purples off the ledge for easy kills.
Move quickly, and the purple army won’t have many rice paddies to capture. Wait on the islands in formation (Spirit Walls) and simply exhaust the enemy’s resources. The Fox Monks are going to be a problem if they work with allies, but they are -so- tough, it’s much easier to handle the minions first.
Try to draw the Fox Monks onto the islands, then knock them over the edge for an instant kill. Once they’re out of the picture, General Romeoka suddenly looks like an easy target.
The opponents are so tough, including the General, that I recommend leading the Fox Monks/General near a ledge. Bunch up and draw the General toward your team, then knock him into the water. It’s just that easy.
After defeating a Fox Monk, the enemy must recapture the Fox Shrines. When/if they’re re-summoned, they’ll start as regular non-upgraded Monks. Much easier to deal with.
Defeat Romeoka, and yet another section of the game is finished.
