Guanqiu Jian... who was he?

Unread postby Sun Mantian » Wed Feb 13, 2008 4:25 pm

I was just wondering because I have read the books over and over again and I have tried looking stuff up on him but I can't find anything out about him.
Any thoughts?

oh yeah, rise of heroes, I didnt know who he was until slick said he was the one who rebel against Wei or jin... I think Zhuge Dan took him down and he had a warrior like Zhao Yun call Wen Yang... something like that.

WEn Yang was the guy with the whip who did the Zhao Yun changban thing.

He also rebel in shou chun too.

Well in the SGZ novels it never states anything about Guanqiu Jian or Wen Yang so when I first decided to play Rise of Heroes I was surprised to see him

Just wondering... What is Rise of Heroes? I assume it is based on RTK, but what type of game is it?
Pang Tong: So I wonder what this place is called?
Sign by road: "Place where Pang Tong gets killed"
Pang Tong: Hmmm... I have a bad feeling about this place...

It is a scenario that you unlock once you beat another scenario and you can play as any warlord that you choose and the characters only die if you execute them

What game is it a Scenario in? DW 5 Empires Maybe? Gathering of Heroes? (In America anyways.) If so I know what you are taliking about. You are also allowed to draft your own team of Generals and Lieutenants, correct?

Moved to Sanguo Yanyi Symposium. This is for the game, not the novel.

Guanqiu Jian (Zhonggong) was a Wei general during the reigns of Cao Rui and Cao Fang. He was well-treated by the former and considered quite an important general, as he was overall commander of the first expedition to take out Gongsun Yuan in 237. Unfortunately, he failed due to floods. The next year, he led a second attempt along with Sima Yi, which succeeded. This got him the title of Marquis of Anyi.

He led some assaults on the Korean kingdom of Goguryeo in 244 and 255 and even managed to occupy the capital, forcing the Korean court to flee.

Guanqiu rose up in rebellion on the Wu-Wei border, along with Wen Qin, against Sima Shi after Sima deposed Cao Fang. He was defeated and killed in 255 and most of his family were slaughtered, although a few managed to escape to Wu.

There have been some translation errors in his name, so you might know him as Wuqiu Jian. He's the same guy, so that could account for the mystery about him. Hope this helps. :)

I'm going to lock this topic, since questions should usually be asked in the appropriate thread. I'll repost your question though, so that others can add extra info or correct if some is in error. :)
