    Setting: Feudal China
    Current Time: 316CE

    The Story:

    In 190CE, the Han Dynasty crumbled under the immense pressure of corruption, incompetent governmance and widespread rebellions.

    Warlords seized power and began battles that lasted for decades before settling down an unstable state where the land was divided up by warlords who claimed kingship.

    As the dust appears to have settled for the first time in several years, new conflicts arose in the lands, forcing the people to take up arms once more.

    With the tensed political environment and threats of war, individuals with their private ambitions plotted, schemed, or fought their way through this difficult world to defend their world and to find their own standing in society. It remains to be seen how they could change the world's fate... or how their lives would turn out to be after being manipulated by the cruel hands of fate.

    Kingdom of Xiang 鑲囯
    A wealthy state in the north (Hebei region) which had a longstanding alliance with the Kingdom of Pan. However, it was betrayed and assaulted by Pan. Its armies crushed by Pan, Xiang never recovered its strength and now faces the danger of being completely overrun by its enemies...

    Capital: Ye 邺城

    Kingdom of Pan 磐囯
    A powerful state in the north (Zhongyuan region) that has been warring with Xiwu for decades. Things changed when the King passed away and the crown prince took over; the ambitious new king mended ties with Xiwu by marrying Xiwu's princess, and began military expeditions against the wealthy Xiang.

    Capital: Luoyang 洛阳

    Wu Kingdom of Shuzhong 蜀中武囯(西武)
    Known as Xiwu, this state is a strong state located in the west of China (Shu). For generations it had tried to conquer China but to no avail due to the allied forces of the other states. In the recent decade, however, it has stopped its military expeditions and instead begin to focus on a division strategy to weaken its opponents to absolute domination.

    Capital: Chengdu 成都

    Kingdom of Donghai 東海囯
    Located in the Jiangdong region of China, Donghai was originally the leader of the coalition against Xiwu. But its King passed away suddenly without naming an heir, leading to infighting among the royal princes and a serious political crisis that forced Donghai to withdraw from the coalition which eventually collapsed. To date, the crisis continues and Donghai faces the fate of imploding from within...

    Capital: Jianye 建业

    Kingdom of Nanxi 南溪囯
    Nanxi's power sphere stretches from Changsha to Nanhai region, but its military size and strength fails to match up to its geographical size. As a result, Nanxi is often in a tricky position but its rulers had been shrewd enough to satisfy and appease its powerful neighbours to keep itself safe and peaceful.

    Capital: Changsha 长沙

    Other small states
    State of Lousha 樓沙囯(Liaodong)

    State of Jin 晉囯(East)
    State of Feng 鳳囯(East)

    State of Li 黎囯 (South)
    State of Sang 桑囯 (South)
    State of Liao 廖囯(South West)

    Kidd replied and may partake in this game with a cameo role. I have not heard from da bao. Sugar is interested, but I know she is also studying for exams. I will be playing a minor role so expect me to enter into the game later. but will be following the storyline closely to avoid any confusion. Also will be gone for two weeks early august. Woo hoo! Hopefully other lurkers from the old thread will join like ren ying ying or newbies too.

    If there are more female characters than male then I guess I will play a guy for once, but we will see.

    It doesn't belong to any state. Korea is... erm, Korea. It just happens to be included in the map, which I took from somewhere on the Internet.

    Why? Are you going to have an Indian character or something? But I don't see why not...

    India is a bit far...unless you want to play Buddist missionary. But I don't think it would be uncommon at the time for invasion or interaction with the Xiongnu descendents, Persian associates, Tibetians, etc...

    But since this all a fictional states, it could be simplified if we didn't included all the "outside" ethnicities & coutries

    Not very well-written, but at least I've got something!



    Name: Huo Yuan 霍源
    Age: 26
    Sect: None
    Allegiance: Kingdom of Xiang
    Occupation: Lieutenant
    Weapon(s): Spear

    Skills
    Huo Family Spearsmanship – Passed down in the family for generations, the Huo Family Spear focuses on speed and strength. Its techniques rely on rapid but forceful thrusts, leaving no opportunities for the opponents to defend themselves or to strike back.

    Background:
    Huo Yuan was the only son of Huo Long, a capable but distrusted general of Xiang who was thrice demoted for acts of insubordination, hot temper and violence. In fact, the only reason Huo Long was allowed to live despite his constant misdemeanours was because the Huos had been loyal retainers for generations, and had contributed greatly in the founding and building of Xiang’s foundation.

    The family’s fall and disgrace blighted Huo Yuan’s childhood and he had few friends. With the ambition to rebuild his family’s honour and reputation, Huo Yuan studied very hard and practiced the Huo Family Spearsmanship fervently.

    Despite his talents, Huo Yuan found his career repeatedly blocked and sabotaged by court officials who held grudges and prejudices against his father. The situation was made worse when Huo Long disappeared during a skirmish with the Pan troops; the officials believed he was either dead or had defected.

    Deeply disappointed and unhappy, Huo Yuan found that he could only watch his country move on for the better or worse, without him being able to offer what he had.

    Perhaps it was time for him to move on as well…

    When it comes to war, what is considered evil?

    BTW, can she not be the same princess who marries the Prince of Pan? I don't want my character getting involved with some lecherous old man , so I've already planned some story about the diplomatic marriage between Xiwu and Pan.

    Hmm, maybe his dad died old and he ascended the throne at like 50 or something?

    Anyways, what character are you creating? Want to join my character in morally-questionable adventures?

    We are all morally questionable depending on which way you look at it.
    I'm wondering if I should go with the trend characters of gender reversal...or genderless

    btw, can we create profiles multiple characters and creating or NPCs?
