In the last chapter, Zheng Li awakes from his duel with Zang Ba to find out that his rival has conceded to his terms and will no longer take supplies from the people. Having finished his goal, Zheng Li leaves Xu province despite an employment offer from Tao Qian. He decides that it is now time to join the Han forces to stop the Yellow Scarves from taking over the land. Meeting Huangfu Song, he is given orders to join with Lu Zhi and defend Ji province. The Dawn Tigers march northward and seeing the Han forces already engaged with rebels, Zheng Li leads a charge against the rebel flanks and scores a great victory. ------------------Character info: http://pastebin.com/yDvYKdAktwitter: https://twitter.com/RainsArpeggioLast thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/244601/
The night is dark but the camps are lively with chatting soldiers and the soldiers of the Han celebrating. Meat and wine is passed around camp for every soldier; a luxury that most low-ranking soldiers do not get. At the center stage and on a platform, you along with Hao Xian and Yang Jing are seated together with Lu Zhi and another man named Han Fu, the local governor of Ji province. After having defeated the rebels and having aided the Han soldiers, you and your men were invited to a celebratory banquet in honor of participating in an integral part of routing the rebel forces. Your flanking charge caught the enemy completely off-guard and it was the action needed for the government forces to turn back the fighting and push back the rebels. Reports of the enemy generals Bian Xi and Pei Yuan Shao are that they retreated a few hundred li back. Lu Zhi pours you a cup of wine.“Let me thank you once again Sir Zheng,” he says with a gracious look on his face. “Our forces were in dire need of reinforcements and you arrived just at the most opportune time. The rebels have been pushing us back and have taken several commanderies of Ji. The past few months have been a troublesome time for the Imperial forces. But the tide shall be turning soon. With Generals Zhu Jun pushing eastward and General Huangfu Song attacking Bing province, I believe now is the time for us to drive back the Scarves. Your arrival and our victory here is such a sign.Tell me of yourself Sir Zheng. What family are you from and how have you come to command these soldiers?”You are speaking in front of many soldiers and a Han general. Perhaps this is the time to bring your clan to prominence or at least give it some fame for the future.>give an account of your deeds so far and the background of your family>be humble and say you are just a volunteer force>direct Lu Zhi’s praises to your allies Hao Xian and Yang Jing instead
>>266969>>be humble and say you are just a volunteer forcedeeds not words.
>>266969>direct praise to your allies
>>266969>be humble and say you are just a volunteer force
>>266969>give an account of your deeds so far and the background of your familylets stop this benevolence and start too boast some shit.
Despite the opportunity to increase your fame and bring more prestige to your clan, you decide against promoting your family. Humility is the basics of etiquette and you remain passive,"You give me too much praise General Lu," you say with a small bow. "We are but a volunteer force; a group of youths who wish to bring back order back in to these lands. It was only through luck, or perhaps the will of Heaven that we chanced upon the rebels exposed army. The praise and deeds of the day should go to yourself and your men who bore the brunt of the attack."Your words impress Lu Zhi and the soldiers around that were listening. While you lose the chance to gain more prestige for your family, Lu Zhi and the others respect you more. (+1 Pol)The banquet goes on and people become more lively. You have some time to speak with the people around you. >speak with your friends Hao Xian and Yang Jing>speak with Lu Zhi the general>speak with Han Fu the local governor
>>267085>>speak with Han Fu the local governorShaking hands, kissing babies. Yeahh.
>>267085Let's speak with the governor first, then the general, then our freinds.
>>267085>speak with your friends Hao Xian and Yang JingBros before political-hoes
>>267085>>speak with Han Fu the local governor
You decide to speak with Han Fu the local governor. you find him eating small bites of food and taking only small sips of his wine, not taking much from the banquet. He is a short-statured man and looks rather ill-suited for war. Indeed, he does not even wear armor but only a flowery civil robe. You do not remember seeing this man in the battlefield. You greet Han Fu who looks meekly surprised. Han Fu bows to you."Ahhh... sir Zheng Li? A pleasure to finally speak with you in person. I am Han Fu, governor of Ji province. It seems we have come to dire times. Much of Ji is lost to rebels and I am forced to come out of Ye city out here in the battlefield. It is quite... Exhausting I must say," he says with a light chuckle.What do you say to Han Fu?>talk about the war situation and what he makes of it>ask about the land of Ji>ask about his family and background>schmooze him and say he is brave for coming to the battlefield
>>267147>>ask about the land of JiMost important, might be helpful for an upcoming battle
>>267147>Ask about the land of Ji>>267151 has it.
>>267151I like your brain patterns
>>267147>ask about the land of Ji
>>267079We really need to work on this, our start was based on ambition not being some faggy do gooders
You ask about the land of Ji and at this Han Fu seems to grow more lively as it his expertise in the area."Ah, you wish to know more about Ji? Well, where to begin," he says rubbing his chin. "The land of Ji is divided in various fronts. Various large mountains peaks form eastward and on the west mountains divine our province from Bing province where General Huangfu Song is attacking. Northward there are some various rivers, which unfortunately have come under control of the rebels. The rivers are small and our soldiers should be able to cross without the need of boats, but should the rebels defend we would have a difficult time. A number of parts of Ji have hills and some forests. The plentiful resources from the local woods and the rivers provide a lot of food and materials in this region. It is quite fortunate for me to have become governor of this area. And most unfortunate that the rebels have taken control... Ahh well, let me tell you about Ye as well..."Han Fu goes on about his city and region of Ji for quite some time. You learn that Ji province is quite prosperous and the population of here numbers several hundred thousands including the cities and the various small villages. Ji province and commanderies would make a good base for any lord.Perhaps you should try to get close to Han Fu? You could go under his empty once the rebels are destroyed. Having a commandery here for yourself or an even higher rank could do well for your forces.>attempt to get on Han Fu's good side and become more friendly with him>your business with Han Fu is done, finish speaking and enjoy the rest of the banquet
>>267305>>attempt to get on Han Fu's good side and become more friendly with himWe need legitimacy at some point. Let's be friendly, it never hurts.
>>267305>>attempt to get on Han Fu's good side and become more friendly with himI feel like we have enough praise from Lu Zhi and our friends for the moment. Han Fu seems pretty weak for a lord and only sallied for battle once shit really started hitting the fan.Something we could exploit potentially if we began to work for him.
>>267305>>attempt to get on Han Fu's good side and become more friendly with himMay as well make friends where we can, even if we don't go into his employ it'll do well to have friends later.

You speak with Han Fu further intending to increase your friendship with him. The difference between you, a young warrior who seeks the battlefield, and he, just a small governor who wishes to rule his region in peace, makes it somewhat difficult for the both of you to find good topics of conversation and relate to one another. Still, the both of you are nobles and trained in etiquette so you manage to keep a conversation going.You learn that Han Fu is a bit of a weak man. He is quite introverted and does not tend to put himself out there. He has no real ambitions besides going back to govern Ji. He is quite a nice man however.The banquet ends and you bid Han Fu a good night. You are not exactly friends with him but at the least you know each other enough to be good acquaintances and he should help you with any small requests.(Cha +1)---------------------------------The next day you rise in the morning to see the troops back to their drilling practices. You hear that the soldiers will be allowed to rest and in a month your forces shall move to attack the rebels north. As you inspect the camp you find a number of rebel troops from the previous battle tied and placed kneeling on the floor. A number of soldiers with huge dao soldiers stand beside them. You see a tall man at the front in well-polished armor and a clean cloak commanding what seems to be execution."Please forgive us!" one of the rebel cries out. "We will never oppose the Han again. Please, I have a family. A little girl and a wife I must return to or they will die without me."The tall well-dressed man shakes his head."You have rebelled against the government and have put to the sword many officials. You have created chaos and stirred the troubles of many. The law dictates that you shall be executed and I shall enforce that law.""No please! I was forced to fight, it was never my intention to rebel! What could I do when I had no food?"What do you do and make of the situation?>stop the man and ask for mercy for the rebels>chastise the rebels as well and support the execution
>>267403>>chastise the rebels as well and support the execution
>>267403>>stop the man and ask for mercy for the rebelsAll men will turn to unlawfulness if they must die instead. Spare this man, and he will enforce the law throughout the land.
>>267403>>stop the man and ask for mercy for the rebelsHave them fight for their lives. Put them in the front, we could perhaps take responsibility for them.
>>267403>>chastise the rebels as well and support the executionWAAAAAH I WAS STARVING SO I STOLE FROM OTHER PEASANTS WHO WERE STARVING! MY FAMILY DOESN'T DESERVE TO DIE OF STARVATION OTHER PEOPLE DO! WAAAAAAAAH!
>>267415>>267424These are potential resources yoPlus if we execute everyone who surrenders we'll just increase the resolve of those we have left to fight.
>>267403>stop the man and ask for mercy for the rebels
>>267429>everyone who surrendersThey didn't surrender, they were routed. If they had surrendered before attacking Lu Zhi's army with the intent to kill him, maybe we should be forgiving.These people are savages and bandits. Put them to the sword
>>267439They could well have stood their ground and fought to the end, they didn't.
>>267448If you let people fight you to the bitter end and have a reputation of always giving people a way out, they will always fight to the bitter end, When your enemies know they must surrender well in advance to receive your mercy, they will.Cao Cao by the way is where I'm getting that.
>>267403>chastise the rebels as well and support the execution
Votes are divided. 1 roll for spare rebels, 1 roll for execute rebels to see which decision goes.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>2675491 is spare.2 is execute.
>>267557ok wash their necks
You step in front to confront the crying rebel and you point a finger at the man. With a disgusted look, you chastise the man."Forced? You men chose to rebel and fight against the government. For a meal, you chose to kill innocent government officials and pillaged where you could. What would you say to those that begged for mercy? The men you killed in the name of your justice who had nothing to do with the plight of the regular people?"At this the rebel man has nothing to say. All he can do is cry and beg a few more words for forgiveness. Nothing more needs to be said as the man in charge motions with his hand. With a sweep of his arm, the executioners kill the rebel prisoners and their heads are lopped off to the ground.The man in charge turns to you after it is done."No matter how these rebels may beg for their lives, the law must be enforced. How can we make certain order be maintained if we simply spare the lives of every rebel who took up arms and allow them free?""Certainly," you say agreeing with the man. "They are brigands hiding under a name and nothing more.""I am glad to see there is a man of like mind," the man says with a nod of his head. You glance at this figure and you can tell he is a rather noteworthy man, though he does not seem to hold a high enough rank to have been sitting with you, Lu Zhi, and Han Fu.What do you say to him?>talk to him about the state of the land some more>go over your army and logistics>invite the man over for some wine and do some introductions
>>267605>>talk to him about the state of the land some moreAfterwards, if we can, >invite the man over for some wine and do some introductions
>>267605>>talk to him about the state of the land some moreSome smalltalk, and then we talk to our friends.
>>267611If we can do both, if not not wine and introductions will do
>>267605>talk to him about the state of the land some more
>wine and introductions
>>267429>These are potential resources yoThis faggot again.
>>267605>talk to him about the state of the land some moreNow THIS is a potential resource.
>>267680>not throwing prisoners into your enemies front line>>267683That would be information you dipshit
"What a shame that the land has fallen in it's current state where we must adhere to such rules however," you say with a sad shale of your head. "Many more soldiers and rebels will be killed before the war ends.""Certainly. But for us warriors it can also be seen as a boon. Though I cannot fully be happy that good officials and scholars are being massacred in this madness, the war does allow me to show my ability and find merits. Though I wonder in the state of the court if we would even be recognized.""I have already met General Huangfu and he seems to be a good man. General Lu is an able man as well. If they are at the higher echelon we will surely be rewarded for our efforts and we may then fix... Several problems that persist within our government."You continue to speak about the state of the land. The man introduces himself as Zhang He, styled Junyi and you find that he is not only an able warrior but quite an intelligent man as well. He is currently serving as a major under Han Fu but he will surely rise further in the ranks in the future. You become acquainted with the man before he bids you farewell to return his duties.-------------------------------------You have a month left before your force moves out against the rebel forces. You have some free time aside from your regular duties to further better your army or yourself. What do you do until the troops march out?>train a stat (Choose one)>recruit more volunteer soldiers>gather wild horses >ask for gold donations from the people to fight against the rebels>improve relationships with an individual (Choose someone)Choose two actions. You may double train, double improve relationships.
>>267715>recruit more volunteer soldiers>gather wild horses
>>267715>improve relationships with an individual (Choose someone)Hao Xian,Yang Jing, our subordinates. We must see if they still support this direction.
>>267715>>recruit more volunteer soldiers>>improve relationships with an individual Zhang He
>>267715The markets are also available to you. There are many great weapons and items for you to purchase, though they are quite expensive. They are however the best of the best quality items. As a leader of your own band you however have additional responsibilities you have placed for yourself. You may want to save up money for other uses as gold can be used to buy regular equipment for your men, raise soldiers, bribe people, etc.You do not need to worry about paying your men with your gold. For simplicity's sake and less micro management they are considered to already being paid.
>recruit volunteers>train stat, str or int
>>267736I'm voting Banner and conserving money. Dunno when our next paycheck will come in.
>>267757Sounds pretty good
>>267733I agree.>>267757Agree again.
>>267744>>267744how much is our money?
>>267820Really? Shit, I'll retract the Banner buying in that case. We might not make next recruitment pay.
So far I have recruit more soldiers and improve relationships with Hao Xian and Yang Jing. Unless argued otherwise these actions will go.Eating so will write in about 20 minutes.
Having won a great victory at Ji and having repelled the enemy rebels, you send out missives encouraging the populace to join in your fight to restore order back in to Han lands. Five hundred eager men join your ranks, though they are but fresh recruits and you may not rely on them strongly as your other thousand veteran soldiers. Lu Zhi gives them armaments so you do not need to purchase supplies.With the increase in power of the Dawn Tigers you make certain not to neglect those who have been with you at the start. You speak, eat, and go over plans with Hao Xian and Yang Jing over the next few weeks. Having been through the past few months together you believe there is a large amount of trust emanating from the three of you and they have no qualms about the direction where your force is going.Hao Xian has a certain good head and is calm and collected. He is an able warrior, perhaps not as strong as you or Yang Jing but certainly can hold his own. Though he has chastised you in the past for being reckless, he is a man with little complaints and will follow through loyally. He strongly believes in order and is willing to execute those they disobey, just like Zhang He.Yang Jing is an able warrior and you think they in terms of fighting ability he might slightly be still stronger than you despite your triumph over him months ago. Yang Jing however cannot read very well and is not suited for political matters as evidence of his upbringing as a simple commoner. Yang Jing can have a temper when insulted or disobeyed by those under him but you can be certain that he is quite loyal to you.
In the next month news of the rebel forces leading another armada of troops reaches your ears. As planned, Lu Zhi orders the troops to break camp and march on the frontlines as well. After marching a few li, your scouts report a large horde of Yellow Turbans a hundred li away. They are under the command of the old enemies you fought; Bian Xi and Pei Yuan Shao along with several more enemy leaders named Guan Hai and Gong Du. They are about 40,000 strong armed with poor equipment. Your forces are comprised of 8000 Imperial Han troops well-equipped on foot, while the Dawn Tigers hold 1500 men with 300 horses. The terrain has some hills between you and the rebels with some forests on the east. Lu Zhi calls for a meeting. You, Lu Zhi, and Han Fu discuss plans.“The enemy troops are too many…” Han Fu says with a frown. “We should position ourselves defensively on the hills and only fight when necessary. Generals Huangfu Song and Zhu Jun are securing their positions and if we can hold out until they arrive the enemy shall surely retreat.”What do you say?>agree, stay on the defensive and build up defenses>disagree, the rebel army needs to be defeated if progress is to be made
>>267996>agree, stay on the defensive and build up defenses
>>267996>>agree, stay on the defensive and build up defensesAs sad as it is to give up the initiative, we must dig in. Or withdraw, but nah.
>>267996>>agree, stay on the defensive and build up defenses
>>267996DisagreeWe should position the bulk of our forces on the hilltop, that's a good position. That should contain all of our archers and the majority of our infantry to protect said archers.However, our cavalry and a contingent of infantry in support should be hidden somewhere near-by, behind the hills perhaps. They can serve as an ambush force. We'll need a signal of some sort, but that should be simple enough to fabricate.We should tempt them into assaulting our elevated position, luring them into a field of pitfalls and traps we would have dug previously up the entire length of the mountain. Then either when they begin to retreat or when the tide of battle seems to be turning in their favor we sound the signal and our flanking force rapes their ass literally and metaphorically.
>>267996Map anon? whatever it is so i can make a rough draft>agree stay on the defensiveif anon delivers i propose a 3 stage defensive barrier...if the first one deemed overun we return to second and also if it fails we return to final one where we could safely dwindle their numberIf we are attacking on mountains boulders are necessary as well as large rocks being thrown down
>>268023Be hard to do much damage with an ambush against 4 times our number.We might do well to harass them with our limited cavalry to delay them for a time, and setting traps, blocking roads, setting fires etc
>>268037We might try to pull a Battle of Cannae then, but I don't know if we have the heavy infantry for it. That also wasn't nearly as lopsided, and was a far larger battle. fifty-ish thousand versus eighty six thousand.It would essentially entail slowly ceding the center to the enemy until by no intention on their part they end up flanked on both sides, at which point our cavalry charges into their rear.
Though the enemy may be poor mobs and ill-equipped compared to the more veteran and better equipped soldiers on your side, you still do not find it wise to engage them directly. You take the cautious approach rather than the bold."I agree with Lord Han Fu," you say with a nod. "The enemy troops are too much and we should hold defensive positions near the hills. We will only engage when necessary and await our comrades."At your suggestion Lu Zhi frowns slightly and rubs his beard in silence. He thinks it over a minute before speaking."I was hoping to engage the rebels directly and score a great victory. I fear the rebels will only grow stronger each month should we not quickly dispose of them and the Han forces shall look weak if we do not put down this rebellion. But if it your and Lord Han's wish to maintain defensive positions, than I shall consent."So thus your soldiers and the Han troops position themselves in the hills and make entrenched positions with barricades. No sooner than a day when the enemy general Guan Hai arrives at the front and begins shouting."Men, look at the Imperial forces cower and hide themselves among the hills! They do not even have the courage to face us in direct battle. Are they men or mole rats quivering on their hill sides?"How do you reply?>shout something back at the enemy (choose what you guys want to say)>ignore him and continue to build defenses
>>268044>>shout something back at the enemy (choose what you guys want to say)"Look at these yellow scarves, too scared and weak to even climb a hill."I dunno, just goad him into charging and turn it around so it's less "they're too scared to face us" and more "they're too scared to attack us" if that makes sense
>>268044>>shout something back at the enemy (choose what you guys want to say)"If you're so brave, come and take them"
>>268044>shout something back at the enemy (choose what you guys want to say)A fool mistakes wisdom for cowardice. A wise man knows the fool's mother is a whore.
>>268058kek, I'll back this.
"A fool mistakes wisdom for cowardice. A wise man knows the fool's mother is a whore," you shout back at Guan Hai. The man scoffs at your words as the rebels begin spreading themselves to attack your position from the front and sides. "What sort of wise man brags himself to be wise? We will see how wise you are when your head is on a spike."The rebel forces begin their attacks. They have enough troops to attack you at the front and on your right side, while the rest of the rebel troops are attacking Lu Zhi's forces at their front and on their left side. Your men prepare to meet their attack.>lead your horsemen and fight a skirmish at the front before retreating back to the hills>maintain your positions and defensive line
>>268075>maintain your positions and defensive lineI kinda wanna try and win our flank quickly so we can loop around behind the imperial troops to take that force on their left in the flank, but eh. Probably a little too risky.
>>268075>lead your horsemen and fight a skirmish at the front before retreating back to the hillsThey're poorly equipped and poorly trained, their large size prevents coherent orders and movement which gives us an advantage.
>>268075"Your mother's head was on MY spike last night." *Pelvic thrust*
>>268075>>lead your horsemen and fight a skirmish at the front before retreating back to the hillsTest their flank with our horse, even without fully committing we may be able to force them to rearrange their formations, at the least causing them to take some pressure off the main assault.
In order to rouse the morale of your men you gather the most elite of your troops and put them on horseback.

You lead your company of riders straight in to the enemy."Bandits and rogues, do not flee from Zheng Li!" you shout as you twirl your sword in the air. A great fright envelops the enemy as the first wave of troops break apart at the charge of your men. Your horsemen break through the first few lines of the enemy and the men under your command score many kills. Turning to the left, your horsemen charge through the sides as more and more rebels scatter about. Only the first engagement and the Yellow Scarves ranks are being teared apart."Halt evil rat!" numerous Yellow officers yell as they go forth to meet you. But your sword dances left and right and the officers of the Yellow Scarves fall prey to your blade in a bloody swath. Seeing their captains and men in charge die, many Scarves begin flee out of your way.Your men turnabout and break through back in your own ranks. Not a single man in your party is killed but each of your elite troops score a dozen or so kills. Your troops and the Imperial forces to the eastern hills that witnessed your brave attack cheer in response.Despite the setback, the Yellow Scarves order their men to move forward and they begin attacking your entrenched positions. With their morale already shaken, they find themselves unable to break through your lines and both your and the Imperial forces hold.At one part of your side Yang Jing begins to fall back."The enemy is too many, we must flee! I will not give my life for this lost cause!"Roll 1d100, highest of three.

Yang Jing retreats with his men and the right flank is left open for the enemy to attack. Seeing this the enemy troops make a huge sortie to the right flank and they yell then the Imperial forces are losing. They move to swarm your positions form the rear. But before the enemy can complete the encirclement Yang Jing turns around and charges back. From the sides drums and bells begin to roll. Hao Xian attacks with the men he hid and the enemy vanguard overanxious in their attacks find themselves out of formation. The rebels begin to panic and retreat as they are attacked by both Yang Jing and Hao Xian. Many enemy troops trample one another as they run.As the hours pass the casualties on the Yellow Scarves begin to grow heavy and they begin to fall back. You spot the enemy general Guan Hai amongst the enemy falling back. It may be quite risky to go out, but do you sortie out your troops to get this man?>order a sortie>play safe and keep to your positions

"Whoever captures that enemy general shall be greatly rewarded!" you yell out as you order your troops to attack. Your men move out and begin to attack forward.The Yellow Scarves rebels morale is broken but they fight to defend themselves when you attack. A few brave captains in the enemy force move out and engage your army and your soldiers are slightly more vulnerable now that they are out of their defensive positions. You and a score of men manage to break through a segment of the enemy and Guan Hai is but a hundred yards away. "Rebel, come forward and face me! Speak of cowards and yet here you flee!"Guan Hai ignores you and attempts to fall back. You can order your troops to surround him and capture him, but perhaps you can try to earn some glory here by going in yourself and facing Guan Hai in single combat.What do you do?>surround Guan Hai and capture him>charge in and fight Guan Hai in a duel
>>268200>charge in and fight Guan Hai in a duel

>>268200>>surround Guan Hai and capture him>>268206What he said
>>268200>surround Guan Hai and capture him
>>268200>>surround Guan Hai and capture him
You and your men move forward attempting to surround Guan Hai and capture him. Seeing their leader in danger, several Yellow Scarves find their courage and defend their general. They fight their hardest and despite inflicting some casualties on your end, your men are still better fighters and better equipped. They mow down the defends and begin to surround Guan Hai. Guan Hai swings his his spear and begins to kill several of your men. He stabs one through the neck and pierces another soldier through his chest. Perhaps a bit surprisingly, he is a good fighter.But even the best fighters cannot hold their own against numerous enemies. Your men manage to grab his spear and pull him down. Your charge forward with your mount and strke Guan Hai on the head with the blunt end of your sword. He falls to the ground and your men quickly grab him.Several Yellow Scarves move forward to free Guan Hai but your men hold them off. As Imperial Han forces begin to counterattack as well, the Yellow Scarves are forced back after another hour of fighting and you bring back Guan Hai to your camp.You have won a great victory. About two hundred of your recruits have perished in battle and another hundred of your veteran troops died fighting. You hear the Imperial Han forces lost about a thousand men. In contrast the Yellow Scarves lost about five thousand men while Guan Hai is captured. Shouts of victory resound throughout the camp as the enemy forces retreat away from your position,Guan Hai is brought before you, gagged, and placed in his knees. He says nothing, instead closing his eyes and placing his face head down in shame. What do you do with this man?>execute him in repentance for his insults and to shake enemy morale>ask the man to surrender and join your force

"Guan Hai" you say with disdain. "As a man you should understand what shall befall you after the loud words you spoke. Here you lie defeated and in my capture despite your bragging. Do you have any words to say before you die?"Guan Hai spits at the ground."Get on with it. You talk too much, 'wise' man" he says. He places his neck forward and does not falter in the face of death. A soldier is quick to lop off his head and you order his head be sent to Lu Zhi as a gift and sign that the enemy has lost their general.------------------------------End of part 4. +3 Lead, +1 War Thanks for playing.
