Chi and the Four Kingdoms Reloaded

Chi and the Four Kingdoms Reloaded

0 INK

In 6th Century China, Four Kingdoms (formerly 5) were battling each other ever since their ancestors split the kingdom into many, only to unite China as one. Their heated battles, however, were interrupted by a stronger and unknown force: the Chi.

Introduction

Chi and the Four Kingdoms

In the 3rd Century, ancestors of royalty, and civilians originally allied with each other in one war against one superior Dynasty; the Jin. Jin was created by a treacherous strategist, leading his army with his children, and supporters. Even though Jin had it's trustworthy warriors, and intelligent strategists, some were treacherous, shifting to the alliance, called the Rebellion. The Rebellion was organized by one leader (Emperor Zhang Hu), and was assisted by many warlords (Wong Long, He ChuanLi, Nu Da, Jiang Shao, Zhou Peishi, among others), and their armies. After their areas were conquered by Jin Dynasty, they had no choice but to fight together, and overthrow Jin Dynasty.

The very end of the 3rd century was when Jin was eventually destroyed by the Rebellion, but at that same year, Emperor Zhang Hu died of illness, making the throne to his ruthless heir, Zhang Niu. The warlords, however, had a negative reception to Zhang Niu, unlike they did with his predecessor. After easily winning against Zhang Niu and the army (some were the warlords), the Zhang royal family was executed by Wong Long's son, Warlord Wong (his given name was anonymous to history). The victor, however, had a motive of his own, choosing to become emperor of the newly created Huang Dynasty, in honor of his ancestors. The other surviving warlords, however, did not approve of this. In response, they split into their own kingdoms, and later downsizing Huang Dynasty into a Kingdom as well.

Three centuries later was the 6th Century. One of the earliest times in Chinese history. The kingdoms of four (formerly five), much like their descendants of the past warlords from the divided coalition, were pitted against each other in one large war, battles to battles, deaths to deaths, years after years, just to unite the country as one. Many have tried, yet they've succeeded, or failed. Emperors have stepped down to let their heirs take the throne.

However, another invasion will make matters worse in this dangerous state of war.

Out of the clouds emerged another unit with the most unfamiliar appearances; the Chi. They stood at the highest mountains of China, all in one group. How they appeared? People don't know. The Ruler of the Chi stood with a wicked smile on his face, standing the tallest of the his empire.

“Slaughter them all, taste their blood, and bring the Emperors' heads to me.”

The army runs wild all over China.

They have the same focus at ruling the other kingdoms and uniting the country. Their army even surpasses each kingdom, so the others have no choice, but to put things aside between each other, and fight this large onyx-suited army.


Kingdoms:

Ning Kingdom-The Western Kingdom of the cold-suited Tibetans and Chinese alike. It resides on top of the mountains now called "the Himalayas. Their symbolic animal is the Polar Bear.
Huang Kingdom-The southern kingdom of red and gold illustrations. Their proclaimed as the richest kingdom of all kingdoms. Their symbolic animals are the Dragon (male representative) and the Phoenix (female representative)
Qing Kingdom- The northern kingdom, hidden by the environment. Their air and water is pure, and the civilians grow their own food. Their symbolic animal is the serpent.
Zi Kingdom-The southwestern kingdom, where the sun sets best. It has been known that many plum blossums grow there during the Spring. This kingdom, however, was overthrown by the Huang Dynasty.
Kong Kingdom-The eastern kingdom, where the clear blue water falls. The citizens are productive and brave in military matters. Their symbolic animal is a pair of fish. Kong Kingdom shares a marriage alliance with Qing Kingdom.

People can also create smaller groups that go by either indigenous people, or location. Same rule applies as well.

The last group are the Antagonists of the story; the Chi. All dress in black, while their skin is as pale as flour. The people range in size, sex, and weapons. I'm not sure if they will be NPC, or I will let others play a role in that group.

Roles:

Kingdom Roles: (Some might have multiple roles (For example, the strategist can also be the council member)

Emperor: (All except Zi Kingdom)
Empress: (All except Zi Kingdom)
Empress-Dowager: (The Emperor's mother who is a part of family affairs)
Consorts/Concubines: (Only Huang Kingdom will have these roles)
The Children (One Qing Kingdom child will be married to the “created” Kingdom)
-Princes: (The eldest is Crown Prince)
-Princesses:
Relatives to the family: (Since the brothers and uncles of the Emperor were usually a part of the council)
-Council Members:
Army: (Princes can also be apart of the army. The princesses can fight as well, even though it wasn't historically accurate in some times. It was possible though.)
-The Warriors:
-The Strategists:
-The Archer:
-The Bamboo Warriors: (The warriors hidden in the bamboo forest of the Qing Kingdom)

The Dancer-The female entertainer portrayed to satisfy many men, yet has some hidden motive. (Reserved for Jaybt9)

The Foreigner-A person from a European country, traveling to China to experience the life there, but ends up being in the middle of the war. (Maximum is 2 players for this role, and they must relate to each other somehow. They must also be of nationality during the 5th century (Romans, for example))

The Shaolin Monks/Nun-Those many fighters who also practice the religion of Buddhism. They reside in the Shaolin Monastery, located in Northern China. They only want to live peacefully, yet there are times when they become targets. Some monks/nuns come from the Zi Kingdom.
-The Eldest Monk (Master): NPC
-The Teachers of Shaolin: NPC
-The children: (must be male)
-The Nuns

-The Drunken Master-Wine is this man's addiction, but unlike many, he knows how to handle his drunkenness. In other words, Drunken Kung-Fu. He'll likely wander around China trying to pick on people when he has the chance.

Toggle Rules

1. No godmodding.

4. No gore, unless against the Chi. They have black blood, which is why I say this.

7. Female fighters are encouraged, of course.
8. I'm encouraging us to chat in our OOC thread, and the chat for our RP.
9. I'll remind myself to notify everyone every week when there is new activity in the RP, because apparently, RPG doesn't have a feature like that yet.
10. Subscribe to the OOC.
