    noticed you took out the qin-wei allied war against chu in 235bc or maybe i just read about that somewhere else

    does that event not actually happen?
    Thanks for pointing that out! The war wasn't recorded in Annals of Qin Shi Huang but I double checked in Aristocratic Family of Chu and it was recorded there. Added that back in now.

    I have a question about the Mountain people. Judging from their geographical location, I'd say historically the equivalent should be the Qiang people, at least that's how it was during the Three Kingdoms period. Is that correct, or where there different tribes living in that area during the Warring States?

    I would say the Qin people are more associated with the Western Rong people of its time, i.e. the Quanrong people that YTW is fighting in this arc.

    The beginning of Qin was tied to the Zhou king promising an unspecified area of land to the western region where the old Zhou capital was. The land was invaded by the Quanrong, bringing an end to the western Zhou dynasty. After moving eastwards and settling down in a new capital, the Zhou king promised the ruler of the Qin people that he can have as much land as he can recover from the Quanrong. This gave Qin the motivation to conquer as much land as possible to the west and built its state. You can read up a bit of it over here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qin_(state)#Foundation

    Due to the state of Qin being located in the west where the Quanrong once was, many states in the central plains view the Qin people as people without proper manners and traditions. While true to a certain extent, this gave Qin the freedom to craft practical policies as they are not bound by traditions or rules of the people central plains.

    The Quanrong are classified as Qiang people's too, according to wikipedia, and the Qiang were part of the "barbarians" knows as the Xirong. If they are Qiang, the famous general Ma Chao is descended from them haha, that's some interesting trivia. I wonder if there's records of Qin using them as mercenaries/soldiers (like other dynasties like Cao Wei did), or it's just Hara's invention.

    Xirong or Western Rong is a broad term used to identify all barbarians(i.e. people not from the central plains) from the west of China. Qiang tribes are mainly from the northwest region of modern China so you can classify them as Xirong. I looked up a bit on Ma Chao on wikipedia and he is interestingly a descendant of Ma Yuan, who is the descendant of Zhao She, or Chou Sha, one of the original 3GH in Kingdom and a prominent general of Zhao in history.

    If I remember correct, both Qin and Zhao did use non-Chinese mercenaries during that era but it probably wasn't well documented.

    The Fire Dragons arc and the Kokuyou arc were fictional wars made up by Hara.
    OMG this makes the FD arc even more infuriating, Hara could have easily made Qin lose that campaign no problem instead of humiliating the supposedly "great" FDs and reducing the Wei state to the status of joke.

    King updated the timeline on his website btw.

    So I'm currently reading a book about the Shang dynasty (the one that ruled before the Zhou, so around 1000 years before the late Warring States period) and apparently there were two recorded female generals, Fu Hao and Fu Jing, both wives of king Wu Ding. Apparently it was also common back then for wives and consorts of important aristocrats to handle important administrative duties and participating in military expeditions, so female generals in the Warring States period doesn't seem so crazy now



    Though of course YTW and Kyoukai being female is doubtful since something exceptional like that would have been recorded, I'm just talking about the possibility of their existence.

    If we're to assume that the current gen of GH will die when Zhao officially goes down (Houken/Riboku + soon to be SBS), will Hara do the state of Dai stuff? I'm thinking because Futei's goal of GH shouldn't really be wasted, so maybe Dai vs Qin could be a case of Futei + SSJ fighting for Dai with the carrot of a 3rd generation of Great Heaven above?

    Something I just found...maybe of interest, maybe nothing...

    - Den Rimi (from Ousen army) is called Tian Li Wei in Chinese.
    - One of the Qi Generals sent to stop the coalition was called 'Den Kaku'.
    - The historical monster from Qi who saved the state during the first Coalition was called 'Tian Dian'.

    If Tian in Japanese = Den in Chinese, perhaps he's related? Probably not, but who knows?
