BUSHIDO: The Way of the Warrior
Units Tagset
from Creation (www.creationgames.com)

A Brief Overview

Bushido: The Way of the Warrior is a third-party plug-in for Myth II: Soulblighter. Based on feudal warfare in medieval Japan and the rich tapestry of myth and legend of that period, it provides a new set of mortals, monsters, and magic for Myth II games. Obviously, the inclusion of prominent fantasy elements means that Bushido is not meant to reflect complete historical accuracy. Rather, it is intended to provide fun and immersive Myth II gameplay in the style and flavor of Japanese legend.

New units, attacks, and netgame sounds will likely take some practice and play to get used to. We hope you'll find that every effort has been made to ensure that the Bushido Units tagset is both fun and balanced, and that you enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed making and testing it. Have fun!

Instructions for Use

Place the Bushido-Units plug-in inside the Plugins Folder of your Myth II directory. You must have the plug-in installed here to join games in which the Bushido Units tagset is used. To host a game using the Bushido units, select "plugins" under game options, select the Bushido-Units plug-in and click the right-arrow to move it into the Active slot. While the plug-in is on, most Myth II units will be converted to Bushido units, as well as certain netgame flags and sounds. To stop using the plug-in, select it again in game options and click the left-arrow to move it to the Inactive slot. For descriptions and pictures of the units, see the html manual (enclosed).
