You are Zhu Xing, from the city of Xu Chang. You have governed the city of Wu, eliminating bandits and criminals while recruiting the former-bandit Zhou Tai. With Yuan Shu having declared himself Emperor, Lu Bu's forces prepare for a campaign against him under the Imperial decree.

Here is a terrible looking paint job map that likely has some wrong things in but doesn't matter on the general scale of things. The X is where you are attacking, the circle is where Wu, your city, is located. I made a mistake last time saying it was Shou Chun, when it is Lu Jiang that you are attacking.

A few things to note: Lu Bu's territory looks enormous, as does Shi Xie. These territories are large, but historically were less populated with less concentrated cities and villages and had more barbarian tribes compared to the middle and northern areas of the map. The large territories held does not a more powerful land base and resources. Cao Cao and his northern territories during the time of three kingdoms formation always had the better manpower and resources than Liu Bei and Sun Quan.

The council and discussions end, with Lu Bu declaring a campaign against Yuan Shu. You walk out of main governmental complex, mounting your horse and taking preparations to leave. There is much to be done if you want to provide a substantial effort in the attack against the new Zhong “empire.” However, some doubt and a pint of worry hover around your mind and heart. You have heard rumors of Cao Cao, the man said to be a crafty hero in times of war, and you wonder if your forces should be making moves that benefit him.

As you walk out of the gate of the administrative building, you stop your horse and rub your chin. Chen Gong was the man who presented the two plans to the officers and Lu Bu; perhaps you should discuss matters with him to gain a better idea of the campaign and what to expect.

YES! IT IS BEST QUEST! We should see Chen Gong first. It won't take long and we need to plan. Also, when we get back, I say we have a Rally to get more support, defame Yuan Shu, and get the people ready and willing to volunteer to protect our land and fight off that rat in emperor's clothing.

So, posting the plan from last thread:

We can equip about 10k troops well with our available and expected gold, split into something like

2k cavalry
2k xbows
6k infantry

This leaves about 1k gold for ships and siege. We should find out how important ships are going to be in this campaign, because if they're not very important, we can sink all that cash into siege units.

We'd probably need to do
3x improve farm as our first action, since that benefits 2 seasons of harvests and we'll need significant supplies
After that, we should probably
3x recruit and hope we reach around 12k total troops, since we'll need at least 2k garrison in Wu
After that, we should train and look for additional officers.
>>
>>34072744

I'm actually going to disagree with the rally idea here since that's going to take up one of our action slots.

Our Wu priorities need to be recruiting and training soldiers. We have to leave behind a garrison and 5000 troops just isn't cutting it.

Maybe recruit one more officer so Zhou Tai won't have to defend the city by himself.
>>
>>34072805
No traditional or horse archers? That doesn't sound good for the flexibility of our force.
>>
>>34072824
As far as i know we have never encountered or used horse archers. We're not mongols.

Guys, we should look to Cheng Gong to help us write a final letter to Sun Ce before we go to war.
Subtly encourage him to defect, but that we'll welcome him after the war
>>
>>34072805
We should probably also start putting our brother and sister to training.

Brother could be trained by Gu Yong or Yu Fan aswell as getting some WAR training from Zhou Tai.

Sister could study under Cai Fan learning poetry, singing etc aswell as Admin stuff.

>>34072845
>wants to write even more creepy fanboy mail.
>>
>>34072805
Our season is Spring and we already harvested and got our taxes. We won't get harvest until the fall. I say our first set should be a Rally, Recruit, and Train. We should also outfit our men in armor at least to begun with.
>>
>>34072834
Both our character and Lu Bu are horse archers.
>>
>>34072679
>>Visit and discuss with Chen Gong
>>
>>34072805

Actually, I redid the numbers and I believe the numbers were off. We get 1080 gold for the entire year, we already got 540. We don't get 540 gold every season.

From the last thread:

>Spring and the new year soon comes. You gather some of the taxes and add them to your treasury. (+540 gold). Taxes and harvest will be obtained at the start of every Spring and Fall, to make things easier than at the end of those seasons.

I'm going to have to look at the numbers again, but we can fully equip the 2k cavalry and the 2k infantry but we won't be able to fully equip all the infantry.

Also I recommend improve farms as the summer action. We already got the spring harvest, so we should use spring to recruit troops and see how things go from there.

Xiliang had them, which makes sense as to why we haven't seen them.

You ask a nearby guard where Chen Gong could be. He informs you that he last saw Chen Gong heading towards the inside garden of a administrative complex, and you head towards the disclosed location.

As the guard informed, you find Chen Gong standing underneath the patio of the garden, a small little building above a makeshift waterway. Dressed in his typical black robe and minister hat, you see the small-bearded man staring off at the distance with hands locked behind his back. With the flowers of Spring blooming, you cannot help but feel peaceful as you walk to Chen Gong.

“Liu Yao built this place, you know?” Chen Gong states as you come to his side from behind. “A peaceful but weak man that we killed to take his land.”

You let out a small breath of air.

“Do you hold regrets, Master Chen Gong?”

“Of course not,” he replies. “People must adapt to changing times. Liu Yao may have been an able minister and lord, but he was not suited for this era. People like he cannot change the way things are, nor take that step towards uniting the land. It is people like our lord, you and I that are to come top in these chaotic times. But even I cannot tolerate a man like Cao Cao who would butcher his own family.”

Chen Gong tilts his head toward you.

“And what brings you here, rather than heading back to Wu?” he asks with a smile.

The first seems like a trap option, Chen Gong himself was indecisive last thread.
>>
>>34072877
Then should we spend an action or two to improve the markets?
>>
>>34072817
The rally is meant to not only get people fired up, but also get them willing to join the army. Right now, the people are meh to us, but Yuan Shu's actions are blasphemous for old china. If we use it right, we can have people join us willingly and in large numbers and higher moral. Who knows? Maybe loyalists will come to us?
>>
>>34072934
>Ask Chen Gong about the campaign, and what you think you should do

Shit I just noticed, if we are going to split Yuan shu's Territory with Cao cao in a join invasion Cao cao is going to be easily able to seize most of the population centres quite easily.
>>
>>34072877
We should focus more on the markets, food isn't so important as long as we don't get too many troops.
Unlike gold we can't use it to support anything, or build things.

>>34072934
>Ask Chen Gong about the campaign, and what you think you should do
Other lords are most likely to ignore it, although figuring out how best to support the campaign would be good.
Can we also ask about Sun Ce too?
>>
>>34072934
>>Ask Chen Gong about the campaign, and what you think you should do

No, see >>34072903 >>34072922

We desperately need troops right now. We can't take it for granted that a single "Recruit" action will get us several thousand troops unless we've seen it in action.

I say we recruit first in Spring. It doesn't make a difference whether we improve market or farm in Summer because the harvest season is Fall. If we recruit first, we can adjust based on the numbers we get.

>>34072934
>Ask Chen Gong what the other lords will do

Not sure if it's going to be included, it's a mix of history and whatnot.
Liu Bei will certainly be a person who come across sometime or another in this campaign though.

>>34072934
>Ask Chen Gong about the campaign, and what you think you should do

MArket revenue is gained in the fall as well. We may as well do both in the summer along with training. Recruit, Train and another action in the spring and Fall.
>>
>>34072934
>Ask Chen Gong about the campaign, and what you think you should do

Decision is made. Only planning now.

>>34072934
>Ask Chen Gong about the campaign, and what you think you should do
Ask about Sun Ce and getting him to defect
>>
>>34073054
One recruit action will not get us 7k more men. We'll need to use multiple actions, and doing them all at once so we can then train the total force is more logical than recruiting peacemeal.
>>
>>34072934
>Ask Chen Gong about the campaign, and what you think you should do
May as well include something about Sun Ce too.
>But even I cannot tolerate a man like Cao Cao who would butcher his own family.”
Nigga you killed his family too. Hell, in the TV series you were the one who instigated it!
>>
>>34073049
>Not sure if it's going to be included

I'm sorta referring to

"At Si Shui Pass, I fought some brigand. A stupid, lowly bastard, but he put up quite a fight. I was to smote his head in until his brother came in to help. I believe their names were Zhang Fei and Guan Yu. If anything, I wish to fight one of them again... And kill that whiskered fool," Lu Bu says with a little vile. It seems some things happened at the second phase of Si Shui that placed bad memory on Lu Bu.

"I also fought some man named Xiahou Dun when I trumped that Cao Cao. He was not bad. Otherwise, I hear there is some lad called Ma Chao with the Qiang tribes that is particularly strong. Yan Liang and Wen Chou are said to be Yuan Shao's best warriors. I hear there is some capable man serving Gongsun Zan, but I forget his name."

He's at least familiar with a bunch of capable warriors, and he's apparently already dueled the peach garden bros.
>>
>>34073054
So our treasury is currently 3140 gold after the Spring harvest.

We'll have 3680 gold that's for sure spendable by the end of the year, if we are departing on campaign at start of fall, we can have 4220 gold.

Since purchase is an instant action, we can upgrade a part of our army each season to make sure we don't fall short. If there's unforeseen circumstances, we want to have enough gold to take care of it.
>>
>>34073033
Yeah, that could work. Even wrote a little speech in hopes it would improve the odds. Of course, when we train, we should get our all star warriors in on the training as well.
>>
>>34073113
Ah, so he did include it, it didn't actually happen in history.
>>
>>34073090
I agree, I'm for spamming 3 recruit options (with the rally write-in >>34073116) or 2 recruit options and 1 seek talented people.

I think for summer we can train, recruit, improve depending on our situation.
>>
>>34072934
>Ask Chen Gong about the campaign, and what you think you should do
Talk about Sun Ce our #1 nigga too
>>
>>34073115
Start of summer you mean.

I'm going to hold off on recalculating an army until we hear Chen Gong's ideas about how many siege engines and ships we need to bring.
>>
I say we should at least get 3 more boats to defend our small transports.
>>
>>34073165
Oops, yeah, I actually meant start of spring or summer.
>>
>>34072805
I think we should get a few more boats. As you can see on that map where we are attacking is right next to the river so a naval battle is almost guaranted.
>>
>>34073205
We have no idea if the campaign will require boats. Yuan Shu will be attacked by multiple warlords from several directions, it's likely he's going to turtle up rather than try and face forces in an open field (river) situation.
>>
>>34073237
look at the map Boats will help extend the Range of our capability to strike which thins out how many troops Yuan shu can take with him when he takes the offensive.
>>
>>34073237

That might be a risky assumption. We know for sure that the campaign will require transports by looking at the map.

I don't think we can afford to skimp out on warships and jeopardize a good portion of our army if there's even a slim chance that Yuan Shu/Sun Ce will attack us.

Plus warships are always going to be useful in the South so it's not really a bad investment either way.

"Master Chen Gong, I have been thinking of the campaign and what plans I shall follow ever since the council. Even now I am thinking of my troop compositions and the right equipment to buy. Yet, I may not be able to perceive the situation as far as you. Please instruct me on what situation we shall see, and what the other lords shall do," you say to Chen Gong, clasping your hands together and doing a slight bow. Chen Gong lets out a small laugh.

"You are ever the worker, General. Then come, let me assess the situation for you," Chen Gong says turning around and motioning for you to sit on the table under the patio. He takes out a parchment from his shirt, and unfolds it upon the table.

"Cao Cao will likely attack in the direction of Runan. I suspect he will contribute only a portion of his troops, now that we have committed to the cause. His lands and territory are still unstable; I suspect that part of his plan in tempting us to attack Yuan Shu was to secure his own lands. Especially in the lands of Bing and the northwest still dominated by Qiangs. Liu Bei will no doubt attack as well; the man cannot disobey an Imperial decree. He will likely contribute a meager force I suspect as that crafty Cao Cao has only left him with a small portion of Xu before they made peace. As for Liu Biao..." Chen Gong shakes his head. "Liu Biao is a careful, if not, overly cautious man. I doubt we can trust him to contribute troops to this cause besides checking some of the enemy troops on his side of the Chang Jian. Likely, the man will not even battle besides a few skirmishes."
>>
>>34073275
You look at the map. Our first target will be Hefei, and that's a land battle. Additional warships will not help logistics concerns.
>>
>>34073237
>Yuan Shu will be attacked by multiple warlords from several directions
He's only going to be attacked (most probably) by us and Liu Bei.
To be honest, we'll be LUCKY if we can face them on water, as we've ALL seen that we have a huge advantage on water, so it's most likely that Yuan Shu will hole up defensively in castles.

Chen Gong points out the directions of attack on the map, then looks to you.

"General Zhu, we will be attacking from the Chang Jian. We will need warships to fight across the river, then a sizeable army and siege equipment to take the forts until we finally reach Lu Jiang city. I ask that you recruit at some ten thousand men, give them some training, naval as well, and get some siege equipment. Our lord and his elite cavalry should hold little problem once we land. The river battle and taking the enemy forts and city is what I believe you should contribute. Do you have any questions?"

>>34073316

>>
>>34073090
Not necessarily, we don't know if a recruiting and training action are opposites in terms of determining the effectiveness of our final forces. Furthermore, we can only get them up to trained, while there are two tiers above that that we can only get from battles.
We have average troops right now, which is one tier below the best we can get from training, I think.
If it is a 1 to 1 conversion, then we can spend 2 actions training to 1 action recruiting and have the maximum effective fighting force that we can get through training
>>
>>34073316
>>write in questions

Do we have any more information on the naval capabilities of Yuan Shu's forces?

And I guess the Sun Ce question because why not removing the enemy's best general is a good way to win.

>>
>>34073316
So the main takeaways are:

>Lu Bu will be doing all the heavy lifting since the 3 coalition members are only sending meager forces
>Get 10,000 men army, focus on navy and siege equipment since we'll be doing river battles and siege
>>
>>34073316
Right. So calvary is not really needed, but lots of ships, siege, and probably armor, spears and crossbow men. Lu Bu has us covered calvary wise, but we need to make sure the calvary can get to the shore first.
>>
>>34073390
>>34073316
We should also consider doing naval drills with our forces just to be sure we dont have an army of sea-sick landlubbers

Raian, I would really recommend getting a direct vote on the sun ce thing now, to forestall a shitstorm later.

Find out just how much support there actually is for this idea in a direct vote, rather than write-ins.
>>
>>34073452
Not really. Honestly, convincing him to join is unlikely, but we COULD use the discontent to have him split Yuan Shu's forces in half. He did have a lot of followers, and if they bugger off to bug Cao Cao, it might make his decision bite him in the butt.
>>
>>34073374
>>34073365
>>34073400
We may as well do it now, and have Cheng Gong shoot us out of the sky or support us.
It'd end any discussion on it, so may as well.
>>
>>34073499

Theres regularly been a good amount of support for the idea.

If we can even redirect sun ce off to another area of china, we reduce most of yuan shu's military strength.
>>
>>34073507
Lets put it this way.
IF he *DOES* Defect, then it would be to us in this case. After all, we are friends, we send letters, we live in the southlands.
This is just the final cream on the top.
>>
>>34073499
Eh, there's nothing wrong with asking Chen Gong a question about how realistic it is to have an enemy general defect

If he shoots it down, then great debate over. If he says it's possible, then we can have an informed vote then.

Right now, both sides are just doing meta shit about Sun Ce. The only actual information we have about Sun Ce are from the duels and from the Q&A
>>
>>34073537
>we are friends,
No, we are not. We're a guy he promised to kill and we've sent him creepy fanmail.
>>
>>34073542
The relevant Q&A:

>What do we know about the Sun clan's actual influence in the Southlands now? Obviously they are not going to conquer Southlands but are the Suns still remembered fondly?

>1. None. The amazing thing about Sun Ce was he won the hearts of people in the South when he attacked it through his personality and sheer charisma. His connections to Sun Jian and having Zhou Yu gave some benefits, but otherwise, it was his own completes charisma. Seeing as how he never got to come to the South, even people like Zhang Zhao who was great friends with him doesn't care for him.

Take from it what you will
>>
>>34073537
We aren't his friend. We are his rival. We gave him a nasty scar, made him, flee, occupy his land with his mom who he may or may not care for, and he is not one to bow to others.

Sun Ce is pretty much our Lu Bu in the fact that he will likely bite our hand.

If we wind up accepting him, we better have some ways of controlling him: Keeping him out of the South, not giving him his own domain early, putting him under us, building relationship etc etc If we just recruit him and then forget about him, he's sure to be a headache.

I got no strong preference one way or another though.
>>
>>34073677

Probably split up his base.

of the 4 uncles he has, 2 go to each city we have. To go under Lu Bu and Taishi Ci.

Sun Quan and Zhou Yu can stay with Sun Ce under us.

We might also need to release some of our own generals since we'll have a lot under us.

He's a general, not a lord. He doesn't GET land.
If anything a Marriage Alliance between our two families would make sure that we stay together.

Jesus christ you Sun Ce faggots are insane.

>>34073743

Zhu Xing started off as a general and now he's a lord and prefect/inspector of Wu. That's what I meant by having land, a powerbase through which you can rebel.
>>
>>34073748
He's anti-sun ce you fucking idiot.
The fact is that if Sun Ce rebelled he'd be facing most of his family being killed at any point anyway. Sun Ce is a front line general, not a civil officer.
His family won't follow him around like a pack of sheep.

>>34073748

>>34073743
he is still the son of the tiger though the pun was fucking worth it
>>
>>34073712

Hostage isnt a good idea.

We need to make friends with him and then maybe tie our family to him. We might be able to marry our sister to him or Sun Quan.
>>
>>34073789
No, we need to kill him and his entire clan and move on. He brings absolutely nothing to the table we don't already have in spades.

"In Yuan Shu's camp, there is a man by the name of Sun Ce. He and his men are strong naval commanders, and I suspect we shall meet them on the Chang Jian considering their expertise. He serves an incapable man, and I wish to get him to our side. Do you have any suggestions to do this?"

"Sun Ce?" Chen Gong says raising a brow. "The pup of the late Sun Jian? I have heard some few notes that he is capable... If you are to say he is powerful as well, perhaps I should take notes to get rid of him..." Chen Gong says rubbing his chin.

"Sun Ce is a man who acts just and loyal. He is indebted to Yuan Shu, foolish lord or not. We have also allied with Liu Biao who was the reason for his father's death. I do not know if we can get such a man to join our side. Try it if you must, but I advise the general to worry more about our lord and winning battles rather than trying too hard on getting an enemy general on our side."

"I see..." you reply. "Then besides these men, do you know of any other capable naval commanders on their side?"

"I do not think so," Chen Gong says with a shake of his head. "Yuan Shu's generals are experienced at fighting in the land. I do not suspect they will pose much of a problem. Though, the more I think of it, if Yuan Shu is not too big of a fool, it is likely we will be fighting Sun Ce and Sun Jian's old retainers at the river."

You nod to Chen Gong, and tell him you have no further questions. Bowing to Chen Gong, you bid him farewell.

"Safe travels General. And while being meticulous can be a key to victory, it can be detrimental as well. Have confidence."

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

You return to the city of Wu. As of now, you still only have 5000 troops as you have spent the last few months attempting to clean up the city and raise support. Perhaps it is time now to recruit, train, and begin any other preparations you can think of.

Zhu Zing started off as much less.
And to be honest, it's going to take him awhile to gain enough rank to gain land anyway. And at that point why WOULD he rebel? There's no point.

one thing to remember is that unless Sun Ce gets killed, he's promised to come to us for another duel.

Like Gongtai says, it's fucking weird to be chasing after him like he's Lingqi when all he's been is our closest "real" duel.

on the other hand, jesus fuck, if he joins us, we just visit and play go or duel or drink or talk until our relationship is trusted
>>
>>34073812
Right, Sun Ce is a likely no go. First three Months: Rally to fire them up for recruiting, then double recruit? Also, let's get some stuff ahead of time just incase they try to raid or we need it. Don't assume the next year is peaceful. Maybe we should get the silk robe too to bolster recruiting and the rally further?

"People of Wu! I come to you to talk to you about important matters! I am sure many of you have heard rumors of Yuan Shu calling himself Emperor and making his lands the state of Zhong. These rumors, as disgusting as they are, are true. It is disgusting that someone, with only his family's name and no real strength of body, mind or character would disgrace the very TITLE of Emperor so. Like a thief in the night, stealing things of great importance from the people and claiming it as his own, he mocks our way of life! What's worse, this rat will not be happy with the small kingdom he calls his own! Like he did but a year ago, he will likely try for Lord Lu Bu's lands once more! Last time, the fool attacked us while Lord Lu Bu was freeing Wu of the various bandits and miscreants here, hoping to attack us then while we were busy. HOWEVER, his forces were repelled, his great commander sent fleeing, and if that fool comes to invade Wu, I will see to it he his sent back with his rat tail between his legs! But, I cannot do this on my own. Brave people of Wu, Noble people of Wu, I request your assistance in protecting our lands and our homes! We must show this state of Zhong what TRUE men are like! All men who are outraged at this, all men who wish to protect your homes, all men who wish to prove yourselves in the fires of combat, volunteer yourselves to Wu's army! You shall be trained by our best, given proper wages, and have the chance to fight against this thieving rat Yuan Shu! In the name of the Han, Lord Lu Bu, and the TRUE Emperor, let's show Zhong what Wu is truely capable of!"

For now you are in need of more troops and men for the future campaign. Right now the land has fallen in to shock and anger at Yuan Shu's declaration. It will be the best time if any time else to begin a recruitment drive.

You call Gu Yong to your office. You instruct him to write a memorial denouncing Yuan Shu and calling for men to stop the false emperor. Gu Yong goes to work right away.

In the next weeks, fliers are posted all over town and your men go around town reading the excerpt Gu Yong wrote for the populace :
"In this year, a villain has risen from the pits of garbage and vile. Yuan Shu, a man who holds no virtue for Son of Heaven, his ancestors, nor the people have chosen to declare himself Emperor. He has condemned not only himself, but his subjects and ancestors to frightful shame and indignity. He sits upon a false throne, fattening himself while the people under his rule suffer and grow weary.

The forces of Lu Bu will not tolerate this man. We shall march on the early Spring of next year, and obey the Imperial decree to end the traitor Yuan Shu. Let all virtuous men who wish to fight evil and remove a blight from our land join our cause."

On the coming months, thousands of men join the army on your side. They shout and scream, "Down with the False Emperor! Down with Yuan Shu!"

Your recruitment drive is a success. Your army goes to 10,000 troops in total, though now they are in need of training more than ever. Summer comes.

(+5000 troops, training goes back to Green level)

If yuan shu kills him, all the better for us.

>>34074825
>I have a feeling this will backfire really bad
How? Why?
Sun Ce wouldn't try something underhanded, he's too proud. So where is the risk?
The only risk there is, is for Yuan Shu to execute Sun Ce and his family, and that isn't a risk to us.

Zhou Yu and his advisors can get him to do all sorts of shit, and they're smarter than us in both stats and a meta sense.

I think someone else would be a better choice. Zhou Tai is good at naval battles, which is what our segment of forces will be for.

>>34074876
Zhou Yu doesn't have a position in Yuan Shu's military I believe, and as such he wouldn't be around to command Sun Ce.

I meant the dude's title is Captain of City Guards. Also no one else is really a good fit except Gao Shun and I need my Gao Shun fix.

When he was independent from Yuan Shu, correct.

Yuan Shu's forces. So what would happen if Sun Ce decided to take strategies from Zhou Yu?
Suspicion, unrest and more cause to believe he's defecting.

You focus a month on recruiting more troops. With Lingqi, you go around attempting to win more people on your side. Eight hundred more men join your side, Lingqi driving some of them away with her ferocity and anger. You promptly make fun of Lingqi, which she replies by kicking you in the rear.

(+800 soldiers, 10,800 in total)

With your command now in the ten thousands, you decide now is the time for training and drilling. You instruct all the generals to thoroughly drill and train the soldiers, while Gan Ning prepares the soldiers in naval exercise. Gao Shun shows great effectiveness in disciplining the men, while Gan Ning manages to get your troops up to part on the waters.

"Idiots! Remember that shooting an arrow on a boat is different from shooting one on land! Keep your feet straight, stand firm, take aim!"

Despite his boorish nature, and acting quite the opposite of Gao Shun in terms of discipline, you hear the men grow to appreciate Gan Ning who personally drills with soldiers and dine with them on equal terms despite being a ranked officer.

(Troops grow to Adept training, naval training is at an Average level)

You gain your income and harvests at Fall. (+540 gold, +500 food)

No, we have in character justification to want to kill him because Chen Gong just flat out said that he is unrecruitable since Liu Biao is the reason for his fathers death and is indebted to Yuan Shu.

You spend the season of Fall training once again.

Their naval training rises to Adept and you begin to grow confident that they can do well for the campaign. (Trained troops, Adept naval training)

Small fires break out on your farmlands. You find out the fires were started by agents from Yuan Shu. (Farmlands now give 450 food every Spring/Fall)

You spend the last two months on another naval training exercise. Your men groan at the aspect of more hard training in the cold, open waters of the Chang Jian but push through. By the near end of Winter, your men have learned to be just as capable as the naval troops of Jing. They learn how to properly fight on the rocky ships, row the ships in to formation, and use the waves and winds to their advantage.

"You're a damn slave driver, you know that?" Lingqi complains to you as Winter soon comes to an end. You think that perhaps you have pushed the men too far, and have given too much duties to the generals on all the focused training.

"We will hold a banquet as the new year comes, in honor of our starting campaign and to end Yuan Shu. Give a flag of wine to every soldier for their hard work, and allow them to participate outside the halls as well, " you tell Lingqi.

Our sister is 19. Look dude, i know you want political allies. But women in this time period spoil pretty fucking quickly. we still haven't impregnated Lingqi and her biological clock is ticking as well. We need heirs somewhere and if our wife is too busy fighting to pump out kids we need our brother to fuck one out of cai yan or our sister to pop one out and fucking soon. If our brother impregnates cai yan THIS Year, we can't play him for at least 15 years. Which means 214.

Would we honestly get anything from a political marriage? We are a subordinant, not the lord.

You invite the officers for another banquet at your halls. You decorate the halls with pictures of battles and heroes of the past, and spend a good amount of money on presenting fine food and wine. To improve the morale of your soldiers, you buy them casks of wine and allow them to have their own food and banquet at the barracks. Standing tall before the hall, sword placed downright on the floor, you give a rousing speech to your officers.

"Generals, in a week we move to put an end to the so called Zhong empire and the man who has beset us with so much troubles in the past. I am honored to fight together with all of you, and I wish us success in the next campaign. I thank General Gan Ning for giving us the naval expertise we need, General Gao Shun for his diligence, General Lu who shall strike fear unto the enemy, General Song who has supported our battles since the beginning, and Captain Zhou Tai for ridding the city of bandits and miscreants. Ministers Gu, Yu, and Cai, I thank you for helping me administer the city, and I suspect no problem with you three taking care of the realm while we are off in the campaign. To all of you, I give a toast, and to Yuan Shu, I give a cursing."

You raise your glass in the air, and the officers raise theirs to match with a nod and "Lord!"

The rest of the banquet goes well. You have kept your sister Yue from seeing anyone in particular, but she manages to speak well and politely with the other guests and some of the men compliment her beauty. On one side of the dining table, your brother discusses matters of the state with Cai Yan and they both get along splendidly. He manages to present a poem he wrote to her as well, impressing the lady. A marriage proposal will likely work in the near future, should you want it.

When the banquet ends, the officers all leave in good note of you and thank you for the event. Your soldiers appreciate you as well, and thank you the next when you go around the barracks.

thats 4200. I'd say cut down on a ram and seige tower so we can spend another 200 of more crossbows. 3000 archers and 1500 soldiers on our big ships with little boarding ships should work well. Besides, the ballistas may have use onto of ships. Same with catapults.

>>34077195
He's probably at 110 war with equipment. It's a useless measure, just look at the base stat.
>>
>>34077182

Honestly, 15 warships is a pretty formidable fleet. The rest of the troops can contribute as well. We didn't have warships when we fought Yuan Shu earlier.
>>
>>34077182
we will have all 10k in boats, just 4500 will be in big boats, and the rest in little boats. They can still fight, and those big boats will certainly be better than smaller boats.
>>
>>34077211
1 warship holds 300 men. 15 warships hold 4500 men. We have 10k.

The math is not difficult.

Spring finally comes, and the drums begin to play as you head out the gates of Wu. Behind you is the army you have gathered, and to your sides the generals accompanying you. Black banners with white-inscribed words indicating they are men of Wu and under your name. Gan Ning trots his horse closer to you, and looks at you with a confident grin.

“It's finally time eh? I've been itching for a fight since we last fought on Jing. This time I get to see the famous Lu Bu in action, and with some decent companions around. Give me a chance for glory, yeah?”

“So eager to rise in ranks?” you reply with a smile.

“You betcha! I'm sick and tired of lords not using my potential and seeing myself wasted. I'm ready to show what I'm capable of out there!”

You and your men travel in good spirits. Your men whisper and talk of defeating the false emperor and obtaining glory, and they seem quite eager to see battle. A good sign to start the campaign off. You meet together with the rest of Lu Bu's force. 20,000 men are under the command of Lu Bu, while another 10,000 are under the command of Zhang Liao. Chen Gong, Hou Cheng, and Wei Xu are all accompanying as well.

“I have already scouted and learned of the enemy we are to face,” Chen Gong states. “It seems Yuan Shu has entrusted Sun Ce to lead the defense against us, while he himself fights Cao Cao leading 50,000 men, and the generals Han Xian and Yang Feng are leading an army of 40,000 against Liu Bei. It seems Sun Ce has around 20,000 under his command. I expect he shall meet to fight us on the river, and we would have to defeat him there before embarking on Lu Jiang.”

"I have heard of this Sun Ce, he is the one you promised a warrior's duel, is he not?" Lu Bu asks looking at you. "What is he and his men like?"

"We would do to take care, they are veterans of Sun Jian, and an expert on naval warfare. We would do well to take some care," you tell Lu Bu.

You and your men board the ships. Chen Gong and Lu Bu both remark that you have created a surprisingly powerful fleet, even outmatching theirs in terms of warships and naval training.

“You are a dangerous man,” Lu Bu says with a smile and a pat to your back. “I will see this Sun Ce crushed with you by my side.”

Your army heads toward the mainland, moving swiftly and the soldiers in high morale. A day of travel, and on an afternoon, one of your soldiers shouts that the enemy fleet is beyond you. You look towards the horizon and see a sizable fleet, with 30 or so big warships and the Sun banners above them. As Chen Gong predicted, it seems Sun Ce is your adversary here.

A soft wind blows toward your direction, and the horns blow and the drums begin to sound for the battle to begin. Lu Bu walks forward to the front of his ship and shouts in a lion roar for someone to take the vanguard against the enemy.

“Hey! Zhu Xing, let me take the forefront!” Gan Ning shouts to you from his ship.

How do you organize the fleet's attack?

Let Gan Ning do his thing, he's the best naval commander we have. This plan is the middle of the road one, and probably best until we get a feel for what Sun Ce is planning to do against us. Rushing head on could get us trapped, being too timid could get us cut up by good charges.
>>
>>34077595

>Finally, during a time when Yuan Shu was in desperate straits already, Ji Ling engages Zhang Fei in a duel. Despite being able to match Guan Yu for 50 bouts, Ji Ling is slain by Zhang Fei in 10 bouts.
>>
>>34077583
Well, judging by army size we more than double their army and we have a LOT of leadership. So long as we rush them fast and prevent them from using Huang Gai's fire attack strategies, we should at least crush their morale. Hopefully, all our training will prevent traps and wipes

Remembering Sun Ce and his men were outstanding generals and the impact they had last time, you order your ships to attack in brisk manners and to check the enemy ships every time they move. Sun Ce's fleet that was looking for an opening on your side manages to find little, and your maneuvers work. The ships on your side and the enemy move at a pace to match each other. When the first ships clash, Gan Ning notches an arrow from his bow and kills an enemy captain.

"I am Gan Ning of the bells!" he yells as he boards an enemy ship with his men.

The vanguard under the command of Gan Ning manage to defeat the first few ships, and the rest of Lu Bu's forces follow. An hour in, the battle begins to sway on Sun Ce's side however and their men manage to do better as ships rams each other and the melee intensifies. Your side is pushed back a bit, though the stronger numbers on your side prevent any break in formation or rout.

Ships under the command of Han Dang come to your side of the battle to engage your troops. They overtake one of your own warships and destroy it.

"Send these whimpering dogs back to their homes! The sea is our home, and no one can take it from us!" Han Dang yells as he engages more of your ships. Lingqi fires an arrow from her ship at the enemy general, but the man manages to block it with his buckler shield. She clucks her tongue in disappointment.

You need to try and overtake that man fast.

When you are going for an average of three, that's pretty much what you get for a decent roll.
>>
>>34078141

We do sometimes get a best of 3 roll when we are in an extremely favorable situation.

I generally like the average system with stat modifier though.

Maybe if people had just sent the damn letter it wouldn't be such a problem.
I still don't see why people had such a problem other than just to spite a good plab

We didn't hit the bump limit until like a hour and half in. That's pretty good for this quest.

>>34078227
I think it would, actually.

>>34078227

It actually would be the first time. But I think we will have enough time to finish today's session in this thread.

"Men!" you shout. "I will personally kill this man and take his head! Move to him!"

Your men all shout in unison, and with their trained naval skills, make their way to enemy general's ship. Enemy ships begin to fire arrow seeing your command coming close, but your soldiers manage to raise their shields and block their fire. Han Dang who was engaging another ship is unable to move away in time as your ship rams theirs on the side, causing several of the enemy soldiers on board to fall on their feet.

You waste no time in taking advantage of this opportunity.

"Those who can brave demons and hell, follow me!" you shout as you jump across to Han Dang's ship. On your way, down, you tackle down an enemy soldier and lop the head off another. Your soldiers follow suit and begin charging.

"Don't let the enemy take the general's ship! Forward!" enemy soldiers shout as they move to intercept your troops. A melee ensues, with each side trading evenly. Han Dang charges out in the middle of the fight and comes sprawling towards you.

"You are the one who fought the Young Lord! I shall take vengeance for the injury you gave him!" he yells as he comes at you with his dao sword.

Compared to our 90s.
That's a fucking huge difference

>>34078465
Damn nigga! Where the hell did this fucker come from?
>>
>>34078477
Sure, but from what we've seen rolls are a damage modifier. Picking counters is what determines who gets damage.

But we also have some x-factors like being stronger, having window boy, and having recently upgraded our armor.

Papa Bu's gunna chastise us for fighting poorly

Lingqi's gunna condescend and tease us

Gongtai's gunna blame our newfound obsession with Sun Ce

or we'll die

We're not going to die from this. But everyone is going to mock us.
