But it doesn't seem like it would be possible for Liu Bei to gain power, to me atleast. Sun Ce would live longer I think. I don't know what else would happen, though.
I somehow don't see that happening at all. I think the rivalry between Yuan Shu, Yuan Shao and others like Dong Zhuo and Gongsun Zan would form the forefront of the story.
It seems more likely, since at that time Liu Bei was just a small fry under Gongsun Zan anyways.
I do think that at one point the Sun family would become involved, and it would be something like Yuan-Sun-Imperial Liu. Or something, I dunno, it's all just speculation.
Zhou Lan wrote:I think Liu Bei relied on Cao Cao in the beginning, so without him, I doubt Shu would have come into existence. Think, no Cao Cao= no guy for Liu Bei to portray as a villain. He wouldn't be looked upon as a hero, therefore not getting enough support to start a kingdom of his own. Just a n00b's thoughts.
