This site is nearing completion, and thus we will be needing one more active staff member to aid in the game flow once it has begun. If interested, come check it out. There are still some rules which haven't been finalized, so opinions are still welcomed and needed.

To let you know more about the sim; it is set in the time period right after the death of Sima Yan or Emperor Wu. Consequently, the period is thrown into chaos, due to the new emperor's weakness and bad council. Eight men, who all have legitimate claim to the throne through their lineage, rise to power and prepare to either protect the new emperor or overthrow him.

Unique aspects of the sim include a dueling system that takes into effect the intelligence and not just the strength of the duelists. And each city ruler will be given a map of their city which includes a central building in which they will reside. Through KTs, they can build this city up by building civil, military, and commercial buildings. Battles will use the same map if the city goes under siege. Thus, this creates a good place for plots as well as battles. To see more come visit the site:

Are you advertizing? :lol: Oh well, no idea what this is about, but I'll check it out
It is curious that the Americans, who calculate so carefully on the possibilities of military victory, do not realize that in the process they are incurring deep psychological and political defeat.

Well, since you "inquired," here's the stroyline:
The great Emperor Wu of the Jin dynasty, who has ruled the whole of China for the past 25 years, has recently become very ill. Forseeing death in his future, Emperor Wu called the two men he most trusted, his father-in-law Yang Jun and his uncle Sima Liang, to the capital of Luo Yang. After consulting with some of his advisors as well as the two men who had arrived at the capital, Emperor Wu made his will, which gave the power of regent to both of these men. Soon after this however, Emperor Wu passed away, and before the will could become public, Yang Jun stole it and forged a new one. This new will gave the title of regent solely to Yang Jun, and left Sima Liang with little but a princeship. Fearing that Sima Liang would react to this injustice, Yang Jun appointed him at a post in Xu Chang where he would be away from the capital where he could not hurt Yang Jun.

Meanwhile, Emperor Hui took over as the new emperor. Hui was a very inadequate person to fill this role, and he was quickly dominated by the overpowering Yang Jun, and his empress Jia Nanfeng. The Emperor's brother, Sima Wei, disliked the way in which Yang Jun was controlling his brother, and in Nan Jun, he began to plot with his advisors of ways to overthrow the overpowering regent.

After failing at his post in Yong, Sima Lun had been recalled to the capital. Both he and his chief advisor, Sun Xiu, were on trial for their failure to defend Yong against the Di chief Qi Wannian. Eventually, Lun would be dismissed, and all the blame of the event fell to Sun Xiu. Seeing that his advisor and confidant, Sun Xiu, was about to be executed, Sima Lun began to plead with the officials to spare his friend. And after much pleading, Sima Lun was demoted to a post in Han Dan, and Sun Xiu was spared. Though he was pleased that his advisor had been spared, Lun was very disappointed that he had been posted in Han Dan. After Emperor Wu's death, Sima Lun began to see his chance to get revenge on these officials who he believed had cheated him.

Upon seeing the way in which his father, Sima You, was mistreated by Emperor Wu and left to die by his doctors, Sima Jiong had much to be angry about. He held inside him a deep resentment for Emperor Wu, and after hearing of his death, Jiong couldn't help but to be slightly pleased that the man who had wronged his father had now passed. With a sizeable amount of troops under his command, he is beginning to grow impatient with the current regency, and appears to be planning something from his post in Lin Zi.

Another brother of the new Emperor was busy obtaining supreme power over the city of Chang Sha, and upon completing this task, Sima Ai became the Prince of Chang Sha. After completely pleding his loyalty to his older brother, young Ai began to become more involved in the politics of the capital. Upon seeing the way that the regent and empress controlled his brother, Ai was deeply saddened, but he knew that any action to remove either from power would be seen as treason. Thus, he continued to serve the administration, while receiving many praises for his loyalty and piety.

Sima Ying had been astounded by the fact that many of the great princes of China had failed to attend his father's funeral. He had even stayed in Luo Yang longer than he had initially expected as he wanted to help his older brother begin his reign as emperor. The only reason he went back to Cheng Du was he hated his sister-in-law empress Jia Nanfeng and here whole family, especially Jia Mi. The nephew of the empress, Jia Mi, had no respect at all for the new emperor, and Sima Ying had rebuked him for his lack piety. This greatly angered the empress and she threatened to have Ying thrown in prison for disrespecting high ranking nobility. So the young Prince of Cheng Du returned to his post under the advice of his strategist Lu Zhi. Scornful, he awaits a chance to make the Jia clan pay.

Upon hearing of Emperor Wu's death, Sima Yong became upset that his mentor had passed. Wu had favored Prince Yong for his abilities as well as his knack for being able to tell great leaders from ordinary men. Wu had went as far as to proclaim that Yong was the example prince who all the others should model themselves after. Wu had given him a post at Chang An which was usually reserved for high ranking men, but Wu felt that Sima Yong deserved this. Despite not really respecting Empror Hui, Sima Yong began to serve him fully out of respect for his father Emperor Wu. Due to many trips to the capital, Yong began to build a good friendship with the Prince of Cheng Du, Sima Ying. The two knew that Yang Jun's time was coming to an end, and Yong's CiC, Zhang Fang, was hoping that he would soon be ordered to march of Yang Jun.

Sima Yue couldn't help but feel indifferent to Emperor Wu's death. The emperor had done little for him. Other than a post in Dong Hai, Sima Yue had received no thanks for his help in overcoming the Di Tribe. The emperor only scolded him for failing to capture the Di chief Qi Wannian, so Sima Yue didn't really feel bad about the Emperor's death. In Dong Hai he just waited, building up a sizeable force in case he was needed.

Along with these Eight Princes, many other warlords across the land began to establish a foothold in the empire. The current leader appeared to be quite weak, and the dynasty appeared to be near its end. So many warlords began to harbor desires to start their very own dynasties. Some would pledge loyalty to the Jin Dynasty, while others would ally themselves with one of the Princes. The land is beginning to embark into a time of turmoil, and only one man can lead it out. Who will it be?


By the way, if you're wondering who I am, I'm the person who has taken the task of reopening this sim. And here's an update: Chapters 1 (Sign-Up) & 2 (Skills) have been updated/completed as we are edging closer and closer to being able to open the sim. We still need a few more staff members who enjoy to RP and can take on a few GMNPCs. Also, we need regular members to come and help with development. More input is needed. Hope to see you there:
