Oh man, you labelled a lot of the young kids' portraits as potentially "husbands" or "wives"!

Talk about robbing the cradle!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

(Hint: might want to fix'er up on those portrait labels. You don't want to be inciting underage marriage! The young kids' portraits should be labelled as fictional sons or fictional daughters.)

Right, if you want to be really annoyed. listen to me.

I was on the portraits for ROT3K 3, and I saw that generic male 3 and 7 are the same, aswell as 4 and 8, 5 and 9 and 6 and 10.

I dont mean to annoy but isnt it on purpose? Well, I doubt that, your not idiots, but hey, just wanted to inform you.

Thanks for listening

Underage marriage was common back then, you should know that. :roll:
Zhang Fei married one of the Xiahou girls when she was what, 13? Of course you are right but still, they can already have been given away in marriage. :lol:

Hahah, oh my. I remember going through it thinking “man... those goofy...”. :lol:

I guess I am not exactly sure what to label them.
I don’t know which is which.

James,

I don't blame you for your confusion because some of the older-looking character portraits are actually those for when your fictional son/daughter comes of age (i.e becomes 15 years old and joins your liege's army).

Well, I'll label them for you. If I'm wrong, maybe someone else can correct me.

Male portraits (right to left, top to bottom order)
1-5 = fictional sons, age 15+
6 = fictional husband
7-8 = fictional sons, age 8-14

Female portraits (right to left, top to bottom order)
1 = not sure, but it could be a fictional daughter age 15+
2-3 = fictional daughters, age 15+
4-6 = fictional wives
7-10 = fictional daughters, age 8-14

Some additions for your RTK8 page, this time for the Items page:

-the fifth horse that you don't have a label for is the Firestar
-Book of the Father is actually the Lao Zi (Lao Zi being one of the famous Chinese philosophers along with Zhuang Zi, Mo Zi, etc.)
-"National War Policy" is actually the Strategies of the Warring States. The Warring States period was 475 BCE - 221 BCE (just before the Qin dynasty).
-the <i>qianxianglizhu</i> is what I called the Dry Elephant Calendar (which in itself doesn't make much sense). It's the same book that belongs to Kan Ze in RTK7.
-the <i>jiu xi</i> is the Nine Awards
-the <i>yu shan</i> is the feather fan
-the <i>bo shan lu</i> is the Censor of Mount Bo
-the <i>shen shou yan</i> is the Dragon Inkstone
-the <i>lu shi jing</i> (green disc) is Lu's Mirror

When you go onportraits page, and try and get to ROT3K portraits (From that page) you get a 404.

Just thought I would tell you.
