Total War’s description of Pang Tong has the line “Crown of Learned Men” about Pang Tong. Any idea where that is from?

There's definitely a better answer than mine, But no I have no idea where that's from at least in the translation versions of the books.

His style if Shiyuan so its not that, the novel subordinates Pang Tong to Zhuge Liang in role and importance, and the oft line that having either of them as adviser could allow one to conquer China.

This sounds like a definite invention, the thinest thread may be if you think of people in the books recommending Pang Tong as being the Best of Us, or has even more Ideas than me (Zhuge Liang), you could get a sense of King of the scholars from that, but it still has to be invention.

It was from a quote attributed Sima Hui about Pang Tong supposedly.
