-------------------------------------------------------------------------


II. How do I use this guide?		   		           (GuPurpose)

	I created this guide in order to help people unlock characters as
early as possible. While the regular PS3 boards of Warriors Orochi 3 do go
over some of the unlock requirements for some of the optional characters,
Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate has added a considerable number of additional
characters over the original game.

	This guide is designed to tell readers when characters are available
at the earliest possible time, but that does NOT mean that the optional
battles will automatically unlock. Sometimes you have to keep switching
characters in camp until the prerequisite characters appear, and others
require the friendship between certain characters to reach the second stage.
As such, if you get to a point in my guide where I list an optional battle
as being available but you don't have it, either increase the friendship
between the listed characters or continuously refresh the camp by switching
your controlled character until the characters you need to talk to appear.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------


III. Unlocking Characters (Chronologically, by earliest available)


The guide will be listed in the following format. If several battles are
under the same chapter subsection, then those battles can be completed at
roughly the same point of the story (listed mandatory battles first,
optional battles after). If the player receives more than one character on
a stage, they will be grouped together. Characters in brackets ( [ ] ) are
missable, meaning the player may complete the stage but fail to get the
character. 

SAMPLE:

Character: Ma Chao, [Lu Bu]
Battle:    Battle Name
Unlock:    Unlock requirements for battle to be selectable. If it's 
           mandatory, it will be listed as "Story Mode"

Note:
I will describe the requirements to get the character(s) listed in the 
brackets in this note section

Please note that I will NOT be including battles that have no recruitable
characters unless they are a prerequisite to unlock a character later.

If you have any questions about the guide, or have constructive criticism/advice
regarding the information, you may contact me at the following email address. I
would also really appreciate if you pointed out any character I missed including
so far; after all, there are so many characters that it's easy to miss listing
one or two.

Also, thanks to bnmp and SSJ5Gohanson for helping correct a major error 
regarding unlocking Guan Suo
