I'm looking for a novel ABOUT the period, as in warfare, tactics, cunning, etc., not a novel which simply happens to TAKE PLACE in the period, but is about something else really. Recomendations for novels like ROTK would also be appreciated. Thanks.
Hey, here are some of the novels about the period that I recommend you have a read. I'll put the Chinese characters in as well:
1.) dong zhou lie guo zhuan 东周列国转 - probably the closets for SGYY (ROTK) you'll find for that period.
2.) shi ji 史记- this is not just an item that boost intelligence in RTOK games, it's written in early Han by simaqian, and deemed the most famous historical piece in chinese history.
3.) lu shi chun qiu 吕氏春秋 - a novelised version of history written by a prominent figure in the period.
Don't know if any of them is translated into English, so if anyone knows about this, please post.
