Thank you, so my assumption was correct.
I think it's the only source that mentions these two participating in killing Li Jue, so I'm not sure how trustable it is.

It seems the Taiping Yulan has taken the quotation from the Dian lüe

can anyone make one character out of these two? 革占

Edit: and perhaps also these 革瓦 and 革利?

If you look at Jolt's detailed Ji Province map in the Map thread, I'd estimate it around Ge north of Pingyuan city (Rafe also mentiones a present-day De county in northern Shandong, but I only find the city of Dezhou, which would be around that area).


Thanks! I was reading about Yuan Tan and was a little surprised I couldn't find it on any maps.

The above map has Longcou on it. You're right, it's not very far from Nanpi (which is northeast of Longcou). It's also rather close to Pingyuan. If you find Jie bridge, follow the Qing River (which the bridge spans) northeast and you'll find Longcou.


Excellent, thanks!
I bought Imperial Warlord and the tome. Hardcovers are awesome.

You should find the other two here as well

a tip is to look up the individual compenents first so you the total stroke count

Thanks!
I found 革瓦 there, by just using the search function and type the characters in there with a + between them. The search engine put them together to make the character I wanted. I like how that works.

Pretty strange, but I keep getting an error when I wanna put the character in this post.

That trick didn't work for 革利 though..

Well, I think so... it should be the character on 5th row from the left, second to bottom, in this page from the Sanguo zhi pinghua:
