Jade Empire Hints for XBox
In Jade Empire there is a plot by talking to Sagacious Zu you can uncover Dawn Stars standing in the whole game besides being your closest friend.
Chapter 1: You only really realise that Dawn Stars name makes Zu react significantly.
Chater 2: When you first arrive at the tea house in Tien's landing Hu and Zu talk about a 'child' that Hu had to make sure was safe(you can try to talk to him then if you wish), when you first return to the camp Zu asks Dawn Star if she remembers anything about her childhood, she only talks about her name what she views as being a bad omen repeatedly because she was named after the burning glow of dirge.(talk to Zu then too)
After you have completed the 3 tasks to get out of tiens landing Inquisitor Lim will confront you telling you about how Zu was a traitor to the lotus assasins, after defeating Lim you should talk to Zu.
Chapter 3:If you did not talk to Zu in chapter 2 about Lim you should do so now.
After the talk about Inquisitor Lim talk to Zu again(you CANNOT have this talk in Chapter 2 but you can have it in chapter three if you had the first talk in Chapter 2)Once Silk Fox joins there is another talk involved.
Finally for Chapter 3 there are many times you encounter Zu and you cannot really wreck the plot unless you tell him to be quiet. If you have completed some of the talks Zu will tell you that he was sent to kill Master Li's family but if you have completed all the talks Zu will tell you that he was sent to kill Master Li's family and his child still lives. The people in your group react but they all agree that getting the Emperor is more important at that time.
Chapter 4:Nothing that includes talks is needed(you are facing the Emperor)
Chapter 5:If Zu said that the child still lives just before you are about to be ressurected by the water dragon she will sense you are troubled by what Zu said, say that you do not know how to find this child and she will indicate that Dawn Star is Master Li's child because you can only see Dirge from the royal palace, therefore she must have been born there and is most likely Master Li's child.
Chapter 6: When you are ressurected talk to your group and talk to Dawn Star because the water dragin had already revealed to Dawn Star that she was Master Li's child, you can comfort her or tell her to be quiet.
Afetr the Deaths hand battle you can try to appeal to Master Li or you can try use it against him, nevertheless he will dismiss this saying that if he really cared about his family he would have died trying to save them.
Chapet 7:When you confront Master Li Dawn Star will try to talk to him, she will either try to appeal to his good side(open palm) or attack him with knowledge to weaken him(closed fist), he still declares he really cared about his family, only the power he wanted.
There are 3 characters you can choose to romance throughout the game, these three characters are Silk Fox, Dawn Star and Sky. If you are male then all three of these characters is an option for you to romance, you can even romance Dawn Star and Silk Fox at the same time. If you are female you can only romance Sky or Silk Fox.
Romancing these characters talking to them pretty much when they have an arrow above their head, and it helps if you ask about personal stuff as you progress through the game, the only one who will be open with you from the start is Dawn Star and Sky isn't reluctant to show his hate for Gao the Greater, It's better to talk flirty to them and say stuff to make them feel good.
Talking with Dawn Star roughly during certain parts of the game can change how she is at the end, pretty much she can go sour(mean).
If you are romancing Silk Fox and Dawn Star at the same time please, oh please pick one of them before you face Emperor Sun Hai (you die after facing him) because if you don't they will become friends while you are dead and the romance finishes there, no kiss. (you are informed about this after you are resurrected at dirge)
After you go to the captain by the gate by the impreal city he will ask you if you want some bounty money .if you do this for him there is scholer in the golden garden he is in a orange outfit and knows nothing about enything but if you help him get out of the impreial city then you have the choice to kill him or let him free you can also when he is trying to escape then you can say he is that man or somthing like that
