For centuries an impenetrable darkness has shrouded Europe, Arabia, and Asia, with countless victims succumbing to the ravenous hunger of unchecked pestilence and war. In Asia, Khan's ruthless Golden Horde wages a war of terror from the shores of Japan to Europe. In Arabia, the legendary Assassins' Guild asserts a bid for power, toppling sultans and kings. Europe, once a promising glimpse of humanity's potential, has become a well of despair under the despotic rule of a handful of feudal lords. Many great kingdoms have been devastated, but a few have grown more powerful. These comprise the Covenant of Seven - lords who have allied with Asmodeus, a practitioner of the dark arts who wields the fabled Mace of Tanis. The Mace is embued with necropotic energy, offering those who wield it a tantalizing promise of ever-lasting life and unbridled power. With this power comes a terrible price: Asmodeus must feed off despair, disease, and poverty. In limited doses, Asmodeus grants the Seven the power they need and crave. In return, they expand their kingdoms with bloody battles and torment their peasants. But Europe can no longer sustain Asmodeus' ravenous appetite. He now reaches East into the Orient, to find new lords who yearn to sample the dark powers. But there is rebellion. Each of the Seven, addicted to the corrupting power of the Mace, dispatch their best warriors to kill Asmodeus and steal his power. Leaders from the East sense Asmodeus' plottings and strive to destroy him before it's too late. Heirs to kingdoms long since vanquished seek revenge on Asmodeus and those who wield the dark energy. They are the fiercest fighters on Earth, and they all have one thing in common. They each must possess the Mace. ------------------------------------------- CHARACTERS IN GAME : ------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - AL' RASHID : The Master Assasin of the Desert Wind ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - ----------------------- BIOGRAPHY : ----------------------- Al' Rashid was destined to become a master in the arts of unseen death. The son of Khalid, King of Assassins, he was raised in a towering fortress high in the mountains of Northern Arabia. Al' Rashid has learned all 57 methods of wounding with a scimitar, knows and has hand-prepared all 103 lethal poisons, and can kill a man silently at eighteen paces with the unerring toss of a dagger. By his eighteenth birthday, Al' Rashid was ready for initiation into the Assassin's Guild. Instructed to murder the powerful Potentate of Damascus, Al' Rashid made sure the job was complete by dispatching the leader, his advisory staff, and 14 of their personal bodyguards, without making noise enough to awaken the palace dogs. As a reward, Khalid presented him with a pair of ancient scimitars, extremely light and razor sharp, rumored to have been forged magically from the very winds of the Great Desert. These blades grant Al' Rashid extreme speed, lightning reflexes, and the power to harness the forces of the wind. Now Al' Rashid has been sent by the Sultan of Shiraz to bring back the Mace of Tanis. He must overcome the legendary power of Asmodeus first, which will test every skill of one of the most dangerous men on Earth. Al' Rashid: Master Assassin hired by one of the Seven to bring back the Mace of Tanis. -------------------------- Combo Starters : -------------------------- Air Quick - During a jump,press Q when close to the ground Block Attack - B + S (will block an attack if timed right) ------------------------- Basic Combos : ------------------------- K,Q,K S,S,Q --------------------------------- Comboable Specials : --------------------------------- Dodge Left - E + S Dodge Right - E + Q Sand Devil - Hold S for 2 sec., release Flashcut Left - D,F + S (can be followed by D,F + Q) Power Chop - Q + S (2nd attack is anti-crouch) Big Spin Uppercut - F,D,F + S Side Kick - B, F + K (can be followed by a F+S) Sweep Kick - B + K ---------------------------------- Stand Alone Specials : ---------------------------------- Blade Tornado - F,D,B + S Double Chop - F + Q + S (anti crouch) Diving Blade - B, F,+ Q (done in mid-air) ------------------------------ Advanced Combos : ------------------------------ (3-Hits) - Q = Q + S (3-Hits) - S,S = F,D,F + S (3-Hits) - B, F + K = F+S = F,D,F + S (4-Hits) - K,Q,K = F,D,F + S (4-Hits) - S,S,Q = F,D,F + S (5-Hits) - S,S,Q = Q+S (6-Hits) - B + S = S, S, Q = Q + S (7-Hits) - B + S = Then Hold S, Q, Release S (8-Hits) - Hold S = K,Q,K - Release S (8-Hits) - B + S = S, S, Then Hold S, Q, Release S (8-Hits) - B + S = S, S, Q = QCF + S = QCF + Q = F,D,F + S (9-Hits) - B + S = S, S & Hold, Q, Release S (11-Hits) - B + S = S, S, Q = (QCF, S,) and hold S (QCF, Q), Release S --------------------- Execution : -------------------- B,D,F,B + S(HCF, B + S) [Dist. ] : Close ----------------- ENDING : ----------------- Feeling the power of the Mace course through his hands, Al'Rashid knows his destiny lies not just in becoming the best assassin in the lands, but in ruling his own kingdom. Al'Rashid turns on his father Khalid, murdering him coldly to claim the title King of Assassins. He then chooses to usurp the vast holdings of the Sultan of Shiraq, one of the Covenant of Seven whose kingdom had grown because of the pact with Asmodeus. Killing Shiraq, Al'Rashid becomes Sultan of a vast empire. A cruel and unjust ruler, he is hated by his people and he must resist constant attempts on his life. He also takes a delicious pleasure in Namira, the former harem girl who is the lost Princess of Tulwara, whose family was murdered by Khalid. Using the power of the Mace, Al'Rashid hypnotizes Namira and she becomes his concubine slave, living out her days dancing for him, humiliated by the perverted acts of shame she must perform for her cruel master. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------- LORD DEIMOS : The Evil Warlord - Pure Evil Encased in Armor ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------- ------------------------ BIOGRAPHY : ------------------------ A member of the original Covenant of Seven, Lord Deimos rules his populace with an iron grip high atop his mountain fortress in his native Bavaria, overlooking a vast tortured landscape known as the Great Wastelands. It is not known how old he is, but his trembling worshippers whisper in hushed tones that he is has lived for hundreds of years already. No one currently alive has seen his face, and few are allowed inside his dark castle, which snow never touches. Further, it is told, his blood-red armor is made of molten lava, hand-forged by the very demon himself. His people dare not rebel, and must fight in his ever-escalating conflicts around the borders. It is as if he is driving his people to war with an insatiable appetite, which grows greater with each victory. Deimos drives his people hard, and many have perished. Far worse, however, is the fate that befalls those who resist. Now Asmodeus has pitted the Seven against each other, but Deimos doesn't want to deal with petty bickering with his fellow lords. He is tired or playing second fiddle to a power darker than his own. He wants all the power for himself. He wants Countess Taria by his side. He wants Asmodeus' head on his wall. And the Mace in his hand. Lord Deimos: Hundreds of years old, Deimos rules his people with an iron fist. Member of the Covenant of Seven, he seeks to usurp power to expand his kingdom. --------------------------- Combo Starters : --------------------------- Air Quick - During a jump,press Q when close to the ground Iron Fist - B + Q ------------------------- Basic Combos : ------------------------- S,S,Q + S S,D + S,D + S --------------------------------- Comboable Specials : --------------------------------- Soul Kick - B,F+ K Hell-icopter - B,D,F + S(can be followed by a special) Shoulder Rush - F,F+ S(can be followed by Quick Power) Fire Wall - B,D,F + Q Quick Power - B, F+ S ---------------------------------- Stand Alone Specials : ---------------------------------- Homerun Swing - Q + S Overhand - F + Q + S Mega Thrust - B + Q + S (press Q when hitting to toss) Reflect - HCB + Q ------------------------------- Advanced Combos : ------------------------------- (2-Hits) - F,F + S = B,F + S (3-Hits) - S = F,F + S = B,F + S (3-Hits) - HCF+ S = QCF+ Q (5-Hits) - S,S = HCF + S = B,F + S (5-Hits) - S,S = HCF + S = B,F + K (5-Hits) - B + Q = S,S = F,F+ S = B,F + S (6-Hits) - S,S = HCF + S = F,F + S = B,F + S (6-Hits) - B + Q = S, S, HCF + S = B,F + S (6-Hits) - B + Q = S,S = HCF + S = F,F + S (7-Hits) - B + Q = S,S = HCF + S = F,F + S = B,F + S (7-Hits) - B + Q = S,D + S = HCF + S = F,F + S = B,F + S -------------------- Execution : -------------------- F,B,D,F + S(F, HCT + S) [Dist. ] : Within Sweep Distance ------------------ ENDING : ------------------ Lord Deimos drinks the blood of the vanquished Asmodeus, as he lifts the Mace of Tanis.

Under his hellish rule, Europe and Arabia are unified, but under a tortured, despotic rule. Seemingly immortal, Deimos rules for centuries. Europe never recovers from the Dark Ages that have withered its people and stunted its growth. --------------------------------------------------------------------- THE EXECUTIONER : The Freelance Tourturer --------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------ BIOGRAPHY : ------------------------ The man known only as The Executioner lives for torture. Thriving off the pain and misery he inflicts, he has carved a successful empire from catering to the torture needs of the Covenant of Seven. Employing every pain-inflicting device known to humankind, The Executioner has created a vast and well-stocked dungeon located on his legendary island fortress of El Katraz. None living except a few loyal to the Executioner know the whereabouts of the island. Some say The Executioner's childhood was filled with pain and misery. None will know for sure, for all traces of his early life have been erased. It is rumored, though, that the great axe he wields is same demonic blade that sliced through the Crusaders' ranks during the attacks on Jerusalem centuries ago. The Executioner likes to play a certain game with his prisoners. At sunrise, he will let a prisoner loose, offering them freedom if they can find a means of escape off the island by the following sunset. The Executioner then hunts them down and brings them back to his dungeon for an especially painful death. No prisoners have ever escaped; many throw themselves to the waiting sharks rather than face being recaptured and flayed alive. Now, war has broken out between the Seven and Asmodeus. Seeing an opportunity to control a vest empire himself, The Executioner puts his considerable skills to test in killing Asmodeus and gaining control of the Mace. The Executioner: Freelance torturer who seeks the ultimate power for himself. --------------------------- Combo Starters : --------------------------- Air Quick - During a jump,press Q when close to the ground Head Stab - B + Q ------------------------- Basic Combos : ------------------------- S,K,Q Q,Q,S ---------------------------------- Comboable Specials : ---------------------------------- Big Swing - B + S Corpse Kiss - D,F + Q Devastator - B, F, Q Axe Hook - B, D, F + S(Hooks enemy and throws them) Sweep Chop - D,B + S(Sweep then anti-crouch) ------------------------------------ Stand Alone Specials : ------------------------------------ Fade Back - Q + S(Anti-crouch) Overhand - F + Q + S ------------------------------- Advanced Combos : ------------------------------- (2-Hits) - S = B + S (3-Hits) - Q,Q = HCF + S (3-Hits) - Q,Q,S = HCF + S (4-Hits) - Q,Q,S = B + S (4-Hits) - S,K,Q = QCF + Q (5-Hits) - B + Q = Q,Q = HCF + S (5-Hits) - B + Q = Q,Q = B + S (6-Hits) - Q, Q, S = B,F + Q = HCF + S (7-Hits) - B + Q = Q,Q = B,F + Q = HCB + S (8-Hits) - B + Q = Q,Q,S = B,F + Q = HCB + S (8-Hits) - B + Q = S,K,Q = B,F + Q = HCB + S -------------------- Execution : -------------------- B,D,F,B,D,F + Q(HCT, HCT, Q) [Dist. ] : Close ------------------- ENDING : ------------------- It has been said that when The Executioner defeated Asmodeus, wails of misery could be heard across all the continents. For all living creatures knew that their way of life, as bad as it may have been, was about to get worse. In its place was a world brimming with misery and indescribable pain; a world where every man, woman, and child knew the sting of the barbed lash, the sharp report of joints snapping on the rack, and the horrible, shapeless pain of the iron maiden. The Executioner will rule for centuries in what will be known as "The Age of Torment." Welcome to the new hell. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- KOYASHA : Master of 100 ways of silent death ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------ BIOGRAPHY : ------------------------ Koyasha is a young ninja, but one who has fierce determination to test her skills as ninja. She has mastered a hundred different ways of killing without leaving a trace, but she cares little for the riches that could await her. She must prove herself to be the best, or die trying. She has heard of a legendary assassin to the West, named Al'Rashid, who is rumored to have killed hundreds of men but has never made a mistake. Killing him would truly be a test of skill. She has also heard that there is an evil darkness invading her land, from a mysterious being called Asmodeus somewhere in Europe. Al'Rashid can wait; this Asmodeus sounds like a good test of her skills. She knows that it may also mean her death... Koyasha: Testing her skills as a master of the art of ninjitsu, she seeks to kill Asmodeus. ---------------------------- Combo Starters : ---------------------------- Air Quick - During a jump,press Q when close to the ground Far Stab - Q + S Back Kick - After jumping over an opponent,tap S + K Heel Drop - F,D,B + K (anti-crouch) ------------------------- Basic Combos : ------------------------- S,Q,K Q,K,K ---------------------------------- Comboable Specials : ---------------------------------- Spin Kick - D,F + K (can be done 3X and followed by a special) Left Attack - E + Q Ankle Biter - E + S Lowhigh - F,D,F + S Sweep - B + K Deception - F,D,B + S(can be followed by a special) Slide - B,F + K Electo Shuriken - D,F + Q, (tap Q again for another one) ----------------------------------- Stand Alone Specials : ----------------------------------- Overhand - F+ Q + S Air Grab - While in the air,next to the opponent,press Q + S ------------------------------ Advanced Combos : ------------------------------ (8-Hits) - E + S = S, S = D,F + K = D,F + K = F + Q + S (8-Hits) - F,D,B + K = B,F + K = F,D,B + S = D,F +K = D,F + K = F,D,F + S (11-Hits) - Q + S = S,Q,K = B, F, K = F,D,B + S = D,F + K = D,F + K = D,F + K = F,D,F + S ------------------ Execution : ------------------ B,F,B,F + Q [Dist. ] : Close ----------------- ENDING : ----------------- By killing Asmodeus, Koyasha has shown that she is the most-skilled ninja who has ever lived. Now, by owning the Mace of Tanis, she can wield ultimate power. But Koyasha cares little about power. For her the Mace is merely a conquest, a trophy of her skills as a warrior. She believes that the destiny of humanity lies with the natural order - the ability of rulers to hold power on the own, not bolstered by unnatural energies. Her ultimate conquest behind her, Koyasha builds a monastery high in the Japanese mountains, seeking to attain spiritual perfection. ----------------------------------------------------------------- MORDOS KULL : The Famous Mercenary ----------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------- BIOGRAPHY : ------------------------- A battle-scarred veteran of countless wars, Kull's weapon is for sale to the highest bidder. An orphan with an unknown family history, Kull was raised by gypsy peasants in the rugged Italian foothills. He learned to fight by experience, throwing off marauding brigands. He found he fought most effectively with the morning star, a devastating weapon that causes massive internal injuries. In his late teens, the Covenant of Seven outlawed gypsies and hired mercenaries to purge them throughout the land. One cold November night, a group of mercenaries ambushed and killed his gypsy clan. Seeing that he was a skilled warrior, the mercenaries offered to spare Kull's life if he joined them. Impressed with the quality of their armor and weapons, he agreed, lured by the prospect of earning real money. Kull honed his skills and became one of the most savage mercenaries in Europe. Over the years, though, all the other members of the mercenary group that found him have met with untimely or accidental deaths. Kull is the only survivor. Now alone in the world, his weapon is for sale to the highest bidder. He has now been hired by one of the Seven to kill Asmodeus and bring back the Mace of Tanis. Is he in it for the money, or will he finally decide that his honor has no price? Mordos Kull: Legendary mercenary. After his family and then his foster family were killed before him, Kull has spent his orphaned youth thinking of nothing but revenge against the Seven. -------------------------- Combo Starters : -------------------------- Air Quick - During a jump,press Q when close to the ground -------------------------- Basic Combos : -------------------------- S,Q,B + S Q,S,Q --------------------------------- Comboable Specials : --------------------------------- Dragon Strike - F,D,F + S Shield Rush - B, F + S (can be followed by Dragon Strike) Side Kick - B, F + K (can be done 3X) Dodge Left - E + S Dodge Right - E + Q Helliattack - HCT + S(can be followed by a special) ----------------------------------- Stand Alone Specials : ----------------------------------- Block High, Go Low - HCB + Q (Defensive attack) Block Low, Go High - HCB + S(Defensive attack,anti-crouch) Sweep - B + K Anti Crouch- F + Q + S Flail Twirl - B + Q + S(can be followed by a special) Bell Ringer - Q + S(can be followed by a special) -------------------------------- Advanced Combos : -------------------------------- (2-Hits) - S = F,D,F + S (3-Hits) - B + S = B, F + S = F,D,F + S (3-Hits) - HCF + S = F,D,F + S (4-Hits) - HCF + S = B,F S = F,D,F + S (4-Hits) - K = B,F + K = B,F + K = B,F + K (5-Hits) - Q,S,Q = B,F + S = F,D,F + S (7-Hits) - Q,S,Q = B,F + K = B,F + K = B,F + S = F,D,F + S (8-Hits) - Q,S,Q = HCF + S = B,F + K = B, F + K = B,F + K (9-Hits) - Q,S,Q = HCF + S = B,F + K = B,F + K = B,F + S = F,D,F + S (10-Hit) - Q + S = Q,S,Q = HCF + S = B,F + K = B,F + K = B,F + S = F,D,F + S (10-Hit) - Q + S = jump Q = S = B + S = B,F + K = B,F + K = B,D,F + S = B,F + S = F,D,F + S -------------------- Execution : -------------------- D,D,B + S [Dist. ] : Close ----------------- ENDING : ----------------- Mordos has finally achieved his goal - destroying Asmodeus and the power structure that has ravaged the land for centuries. His parents were killed by Sir Dregan, one of the Covenant of Seven, when Kull was just a boy. He was taken in by a gypsy clan, who were then killed by Deimos' mercenaries. Hating the Seven and all they stood for, Kull realized the only way he could beat them was from the inside, gaining their trust as a mercenary until he could bring them down one by one. Kull will now wield the Mace with wisdom, to rebuild the land to its former glory, and cast down the Seven and their despotic rule. In the hands of this wise and virtuous king, the Mace will be a powerful tool for good. Heroes are indeed found in the most unlikely places. --------------------------------------------------- NAMIRA :The Deadly Harem Girl --------------------------------------------------- -------------------------- BIOGRAPHY : -------------------------- Kidnapped and sold into slavery as a child, Namira grew up in the harem of a lesser sultan whose deviant appetite for pleasure was as twisted as his hideous face. Forced to dance for the pleasure of fat and lecherous old men, she hates the society in which she in nothing more than a slave. Namira has frequent flashbacks of childhood, hazy visions of living in an opulent palace surrounded by rich trappings and courteous attendants. Often, these dreams are followed by violent images of raging fire, flashing swords, and strangers. Thinking it nothing more than dreams created by her subconscious to prevent her from going mad, Namira gives the visions little thought, until one day she overhears some harem girls speaking of a lost princess. Sixteen years ago there was a terrible tragedy at the Royal Palace. A band of assassins murdered the royal family, all except the young princess Tulwara, who was rumored to have been smuggled out alive. If she was still alive, she would be about the same age as Namira was now. Was there a connection? Were the dreams real? Namira had to know. Namira secretly learned the art of fighting from a kind eunuch. Combining a deadly, swift scimitar with a seductive style of fighting that mesmerized her opponents, Namira became a lethal killing machine. During her escape from her master, Namira pierced his heart with her scimitar. Before he died, she asked him who she truly was. The sultan muttered only "Asmodeus knows" with his last breath. Knowing her true origins are somehow entwined with the mysterious Asmodeus, she begins a quest to find him and recover her identity. If she can bring down Asmodeus and wield the Mace of Tanis, she might be able to discover the truth and regain her place on the throne, if only the visions weren't delirium... Namira: Harem girl and lost princess, Namira mastered the deadly art of scimitar fighting from a court eunoch. She seeks revenge on Al' Rashid and the Seven. ----------------------------- Combo Starters : ----------------------------- Air Quick - During a jump,press Q when close to the ground -------------------------- Basic Combos : -------------------------- K,S,Q K,K,B + K ---------------------------------- Comboable Specials : ---------------------------------- Spin Left - B + Q (can follow with another spin by hitting Q again) Spin Right - B + S (can follow with another spin by hitting S again) Heel Slap - D,F + K(can be followed by K) Sweep - B + K High Kick - F,F + K Dervish Twirl - Q + S + K Dodge Slash - E + S ----------------------------------- Stand Alone Specials : ----------------------------------- High Thrust - Q + S(can be followed by a special) Low Thrust - S + K(can be followed by a special) Anit Crouch - F + Q + S (anti crouch) Heel Drop - B,F + K (anti crouch) Power Chop - B + Q + S(anti crouch can be followed by special) Block High,Cut Low - F,D + Q Fan Toss - F,B + Q ------------------------------ Advanced Combos : ------------------------------ (2-3-Hits) - U + K = B,Q,Q (3-Hits) - UF + K = S = F,F + K (4-Hits) - Jump + K = K,K = F,F + L (5-Hits) - S = B + S = S = B + Q = Q (6-Hits) - S = B + S = S = B + Q = Q = F,F + K (6-Hits) - S = B + S = S = B + Q = Q = Q + S + K (6-Hits) - S = B + S = S = QCF + K = K = Q + S + K (8-Hits) - S = B + S = S = B + Q = Q = D,F + K = K = F,F + K (9-Hits) - K,S,Q = B + Q = Q = S = B + S = S = Q + S + K (9-Hits) - K,S = B + S = S = B + Q = Q = D,F + K = K = F,F + K (10-Hits) - K,S,Q = B + Q = Q = B + S = S = D,F + K = K = F,F + K ------------------- Execution : ------------------- D,D,B,F + K [Dist. ] : Close ---------------- ENDING : ---------------- Namira is indeed the lost Princess Tulwara of Arabia. Her family was murdered by Khalid, King of Assassins, when she was only three. She escaped a foul death when she was smuggled out of the palace by one of her guards, who then sold her into slavery for a tidy profit. Khalid was hired by the Sultan of Shiraq, one of the Covenant of Seven, who was promised the Kingdom of Arabia in a pact with Asmodeus.

That was before the dark wolves came, roaming the countryside by the hundreds, destroying villages and dragging away the children of his people. Ragnar heard rumor of a large band of wolves in the forest of the East who were raiding small villages. He and his men traveled there, but he suddenly had a terrible premonition that it was all a ruse. He envisioned that his village, Torsgard ,was being raided by scarlet-clad men, and his family was being tortured. He quickly returned to Torsgard, but it was too late. It lay in smoking ruins, its people dead. The bodies of his family lay half-eaten, their red blood wasted upon the snow. At the outskirts of the forest he could see the wolves. Their red eyes burned with a savage intensity, a raw supernatural evil that could only come from one source - Deimos. He was driven into a berserk fury. Ragnar Bloodaxe would avenge his people, his family. He would destroy Deimos and Asmodeus - the one who is behind it all. He would destroy those who were poisoning his land. Or he would die trying.

He is the son of Malanoche de Castillo, one of the Covenant of Seven and despotic ruler of the Iberia. On the night of the birth of Taurus, a black shadow strangled the moon's light. Asmodeus' scrye had a prophecy of doom: the evil child born to Malanoche that night would prove to be Asmodeus' downfall. Asmodeus stormed into the birthing chamber and demanded that the child be handed over to his keeping, or else Malanoche would be stripped of his power. Taurus was born, and Asmodeus took him and stormed out of the chamber. However, unknown to Asmodeus, there was a twin yet to be born. Moments later, As Taria emerged, the lights in the chamber went black and lightning streaked the sky. Malanoche smiled; Asmodeus took the wrong twin. Here was the source of the omen. Taria was the evil one, and the one that would follow in her father's footsteps. Asmodeus turned Taurus into a grendal, a stone gargoyle who guards the entrance to the netherworld. For decades, Taurus was forced to do the bidding of his master, killing all those who would oppose Asmodeus. Now, the decades of evil have ended. Justly wielding the power of the Mace, Taurus destroys his father and seizes the throne himself, ruling justly. He uses the Mace to purge the rest of the Seven, chasing the darkness from the lands. Although he tries to cure Taria, her evil is too strong. Unwilling to kill his sister, he instead blinds her and cuts out her tongue. Unable to read spellbooks and recite chants, Taria is forever shut away from the dark realms she once traveled.

Will it be enough to defeat Deimos? It must be piloted by one who possesses such hatred against Deimos that they will strive for victory no matter what the cost. Gar Gudrunson himself will pilot the Dwarven Warmech. ---------------------------- Combo Starters : ---------------------------- Air Quick - During a jump,press Q when close to the ground ---------------------------- Basic Combos : ---------------------------- Q,Q,S S,S,Q + S -------------------------------- Comboable Specials : -------------------------------- Extended Arm - B,F + S Uppercut - B,F + Q Spin Around - Q + S Stomp - Q + S + K --------------------------------- Stand Alone Specials : --------------------------------- Monkey Spin - HCT + K Block- High Pound - F,D + Q Slam (Anti-Crouch) - F + Q + S Cannon Straight - D,F + S Cannon Arc -D,F + Q Triple Pound - Hold S,then release Frenzy - F + S rapidly ------------------------------- Advanced Combos : ------------------------------- (3-Hits) - Q,Q = B,F + Q (3-Hits) - Q,Q = HCT + S (3-Hits) - Q,Q = HCT + K (3 or 4-Hits) - Q,Q = Q + S (5-Hits) - Hold S = Q,Q = Release S (6-Hits) - Hold S = Air Quick = Q,Q = Release S (6-11 Hits) - F + S rapidly keep pressing S -------------------- Execution : -------------------- B,F,D,B + S(B,HCB + S) [Dist: Close] ----------------- ENDING : ----------------- Gar gazes at the Mace of Tanis in amazment. It is perfection. The Mace speaks to him, and in his mind Gar sees a world where the dwarven race will not just live in freedom -- it will dominate the world above! Gar returns to the dark halls of the Dwarf Kingdom and displays the Mace to the many dwarfs gathered there. They too are seduced by the power of the Mace. Soon shouts of, "Revenge! Enslave the humans! Kill!!" echo through the caverns. In a frenzy of activity the dwarves construct hundreds of War Mechs and march out of the hidden halls to dominate the land above. ----------------------------------- CREDITS & THANKS : ----------------------------------- Basmom828@aol.com for giving tricks and tips for Mace.Also for the Dregan's 11 hit and combos.
