    Default Guide to the Guides (Total War: Shogun 2)

    This is the TW:S2 edition of the "Guide to the Guides." There will most likely be some overlap with Total War Center and other sources of guides, but I hope to keep things as organized as possible.

    General Guides:

    Official Shogun 2 FAQ

    Frogbeastegg's Guide for Total War: Shogun 2
    (^Thorough beyond compare)

    Browser-Based Encyclopedia Access:*

    Added The Clans, a Complete Walkthrough under the passive aggressively named "Full Game Guides that Certain Individual Couldn't Wait to Compile Based on the Encyclopedia: " section.

    EDIT: Guide in question removed from boards, removing link and section.

    EDIT2: Guide verified as legit, added back on.

    My clan walkthrough is back up so you can link it on here if you would like.


    Your welcome

    Added back in, sorry about the hassle. Thanks for being the first guide.

    Also, sadly, this isn't going to get stickied until the official release, so the link to your guide will be languishing at the bottom of a pile of dead threads for a bit.

    Yeah I know I expected as much

    I'm probably going to re-post a new version once the game comes out and I've actually played with the clans and experimented with all the units. Like the comment you wrote about my guide.

    It's very offensive, yet fitting

    Added instruction for how to access demo Encyclopedia from a web browser under the "General Demo Guides" section, courtesy of Dribbs.

    I have begun updating my clan guide (The Clans, a Complete Walkthrough) to V2. I will edit this post when I am finished.

    Took out the demo-specific content at the beginning of the post, including the access path to the demo's encyclopedia.

    Renamed "General Demo Guides" to just "General Guides" and placed a link to online encyclopedia access as well as a plea for help for the file path of the encyclopedia on the computer's hard drive under it.

    Renamed "Full Game Guides that Certain Individual Couldn't Wait to Compile Based on the Encyclopedia: " to "Campaign Guides."

    @face-sploder
    Take your time, you're still well ahead of the curve here.
