This is my first AAR, but I've been playing RTW for a couple years. This is an AAR about the Period of the Three Kingdoms in China, after the collapse of the Han Dynasty. It is fairly realistic, and is based on both historical accounts, and the infamous(to chinese) novel of the same name. So here are some images at the beginning of the campaign, set in China.
MANDATE OF HEAVEN - ROMANCE OF THE THREE KINGDOMS
After the yellow turban of heaven, many people felt that the mandate of heaven had left the imperial family in Chang'an. Civil war had broken out, with many of the warlords allying against Dong Zhuo who had occupied the capital city. However, because of bad leadership and disagreements, the coalition did not have any success. However, Lu Bu, the trusted lieutenant of Dong Zhuo, betrayed his master in a stunning act of treachery. Now the coalition fragmented, and the various factions sought to reunite china.
Cao Cao rescued the emperor and created a new court in Xuchang. Now, with the mandate of heaven, he will seek to conquer all of china in the name of the emperor.
The picture above shows the territory of Wei (my faction) at the beginning of 194AD. The red circle is the capital city, and the blue circle is the army my faction leader is in.
The next pic is info about the faction leader, in case you want to know more.
And finally, the victory conditions. Note that I have 51 family members already! I have to control 100 provinces - basically reunite china from the steppes of the north to the coastal south.
tell me what you feel.
Note: there are 12 turns a year. The people who made this mod made it that way, and I like it too.
