The Wu Warrior Known as Zhou Tai

Unread postby Zhou Tai » Tue Oct 01, 2002 4:03 pm

Hello loyal three kingdoms peeps, the names Zhou Tai, (Originally the Imperial General, KO may know me for praising his Sierra Avatar :wink: )

Anyway , as many of you may as guessed the person i respect the most and in my own opinion on par with Zhao Yun is Zhou Tai.

Why on par, mainly because both have saved their lords many times, and are accomplished warriors (mainly ZT :wink: )

Im just wondering, how do you any of you feel about Zhou Tai, is he a valuable asset to Wu? your feelings of him saving Sun Quan from bandits,do you reckon hes on par with Zhao, despite the book prasing shu for almost anything :x ) also He Fei as with Xu Sheng. Anything?

Well Chat to you all soon.
What? Am I suppose to impress you with a phrase. ><

I agree, Zhou Tai was a loyal warrior to Wu, and because I think Wu is the best, and am firmly against Shu, I agree that Zhou Tai is just as good as Zhao Yun, Zhao Tai was in many more big battles. Maybe Cao Hong should be included in with those two seeing as if it were not for him Cao Cao would have most likey been killed.

Zhou Tai had permanent physical scars from using his body to block arrows that were shot at the young Sun Quan. He had more contributions than Shu's Zhou tai: Zhao Yun.
I would say Zhou Tai is pretty much underrated by LGZ and KOEI.
He was humble and respectful towards others. Truly someone we can admire. Selfless acts like putting your life on the line for someone else without hesitation are rare in this day and age.
Perhaps we can ask ourselves: Would we do the same in Zhou Tai's postition? Would be put our life on the line for someone whom we believe in?
He who exercises government by means of his virtue may be compared to the north polar star, which keeps its place and all the stars turn towards it.

Zhou Tai was very loyal and my first pick to be the first new Wu warrior they put in DW4.

Anyways, Zhou Tai was one loyal person who would sacrifice his life for Wu. He saved Sun Quan a lot and put everyone else above him. He is indeed underrated. Zhou Tai did a lot more for Wu than Zhao Zilong did for Shu.

Not mentioning that Zhou Tai saved someone who wasn't incompetant, all Zilong did was save Ah Dou.

In other words, although they are both great bodyguards, one brought on the death of his kingdom, while the other safeguarded it.

The more I learn about Zhou Tai in history the more I like him. He worked hard to protect Sun Quan (as Zhou Gongjing mentioned above) and he served Wu to the very best of his ability. I think he was a marvelous model officer.

Lady Wu just sent me his San Guo Zhi biography, I have uploaded it here if you want to take a look. :)

:o Wow, a good response, im glad to meet some loyal wuists, (The True Victor of the 3 Kingdoms - lasting longest :) )

Did Zhou Tai ever name his weapon? and did anyone specific in the 3 kingdoms ever have any grudges against him, ally or foe?

Good greetings again all

Heheh. You don’t have to be a “Wuist” to like Zhou Tai. He was just an all around wonderful fellow. It is hard for me to think of anything bad about the guy.
