That story is true. Cao Cao often shared his carriage with Xiahou Dun. For an emperor (or king in Cao Cao’s case) to share his carriage with a subordinate was a high honor, and one that was usually only bestowed upon close personal friends. After all, it would be the only time when the emperor (or king) was unguarded and demonstrated great trust.
Does anybody have any idea why the Moon Rune was translated as “Blue Moon Rune” at all? Or is it called in Japanese something else other than Tsuki no monshō (I don’t think so but)?
Do you want to know the shocking secret about this?
It never was translated as “Blue Moon Rune”! Never! Not once in the game does the phrase appear! Nowhere!
The reality is, the lack of restraint or original research of the fandom caused a bit of a mix up between Moon Rune and Blue Moon Village (and possibly Blue Moon (aka Vextor, aka Sars Admin, etc, etc)) and the terms kind of got squashed together.
That’s it. Fandumb. And it went on for years and years and even today people will swear up and down that Suikoden II calls it the Blue Moon Rune at least once when it really doesn’t.
Moon Rune appears three times in the Suikoden II script. It is never prefixed with “Blue”.
This also happens with the Moon Bird Recipe! It is never called the Blue Moon Bird Recipe, every character in the game calls it simply the “Moon Bird Recipe” but fans and sites to this day will use the term “Blue Moon Bird Recipe”! The Suikoden fandom is obsessed with shoehorning in extra blue moons.
It was called Blue Moon Rune in one Japanese publication
I guess when Vextor was writing that sort of stuff in the old times of SUikoden fandom, he used that guide maybe. Everybody who played the game thought it was just a mistranslation. But screw you, Konami, can’t you be consistent at least once?
Also, for your entertainment:
(after posting the Blue Moon Rune article from the old Gensopedia).there are u sttisfied huh…… duefiumi is not that s2pid 2 post it u know…..
That would certainly be an interesting take on the two of them, and I don’t think it’s entirely groundless. Sima Yi was Cao Cao’s personal assistant for many years - first as his secretary, than his second-in-command. I think it would actually be quite nice to see Sima Yi learning the ways of war from Cao Cao. The only thing I wouldn’t like about it is if Sima Yi came off as insecure or something like that, because that is just inconsistent with every incarnation of his character.
As an interesting note, Sima Yi’s reluctance to join Cao Cao may have been his own version of youthful rebellion. Sima Fang actually wanted to be a hermit and just go off somewhere quiet to study and write, but he thought that people of ability had a moral obligation to serve the government. And then you have Sima Yi, who outright refused to take a position with the government for as long as he could. It may have just been his way of rebelling against his father’s authority.
I just hope Koei don’t get Zhang Chunhua’s to be some clone of Yi’s father because it would kill the point of everything going on between the three of them.
found this gem in the 1996 Cornell Women’s Handbook. it’s what to say when a guy tries to get out of using a condom
Girls, don’t be the ones making excuses either!!!
I finally cosplayed from my favorite game! This is Elza from Suikoden II. She’s a fugitive and former member of the Howling Voice Guild, a mysterious and powerful group of assassins who are the only faction in the Suikoden universe to possess knowledge of gunpowder. Elza is not a playable character, and she only makes a short appearance in the main storyline. However, there is an entire sidequest dedicated to helping Clive, Guild Master of the Howling Voice Guild (and Elza’s ex-lover) track her across the country. This requires you to speed run the game in under 20 hours, but their dramatic final showdown makes it totally worthwhile.

We recently had the incredible honor to interview Yoshitaka Murayama, the creator of the Genso Suikoden franchise! Read it and learn what his favourite Suikoden character is, where the idea for the rune system comes from and his perspective on nowadays video game production.
"Suikoden is not something I could ever make myself, nor does it belong to me personally. Yet, I am truly grateful and touched to see everyone’s everlasting love for Suikoden. "
