Pacify the Riots, Uniting the People
平动乱聚民心

Open RP

In between the march of Liu Shentong's main tactical force to the centre of the city and the battle to disperse the rioters there, a continuous flurry of messengers arrive with reports for the Grand Administrator. Each report brings a piece of clarification to the situation, and Huyan Lie watches in patient anticipation as the whole strategic picture comes to light in his mind. The two men confer briefly on the developing situation and come up with slight tweaks of the original strategy to better handle the new situation. And Huyan Lie takes up the role of drafting Liu Shentong's orders, then sending them out via mounted messengers to the various fronts and commanders.

Meanwhile, the troops numbering 7000 in number, march with efficient disciplined movements like the crack troops they are reputed to be. And under the leadership of the Supreme Commander Grand Administrator Liu Shentong, the troops move in and out of formations fluidly, flexibly adopting that which confers the greatest advantage to the tactical situation at hand.

OOC - Anyone can join in this RP.

Those participating officers like Li Jun, Dai Ren, Cai Bin, Jiang Meixiu, Gongsun Ji, Ju-long Bai, etc, can describe or RP the situation on the other fronts.

Other characters not participating in the riot intervention can also join in the RP to describe how they are affected by the riots and the countermeasures, and how they are responding. :)

It had not been a good start to the riot, without troops she had been assigned to find more and to use her guards as scouts which had mixed effect. Her scouts were some of the best in the city so when she dispatched them to locate the riots, she knew they would be successful. As soon as they returned, she had passed word up to HQ of where riots had spread, it was clear the gentry were quiet but the frustrations of the poor had boiled over. It was up to her superiors to decide how to respond to the news.

She had collected orders from the clerks before her ride north to gather the soldiers and she had thought it had gone well, she had found plenty of confused men and given them the orders to return to base. Unfortunately, she discovered only on her return back and finding nobody there, the clerks had got muddled and given conflicting locations. Li Jun had sworn and vowed to have a word with Cai Bin about the competence of the civil service but as she made her way to Dai Ren, her thoughts soon turned elsewhere.

Dai Ren had seemed to have quickly brought the west under control and she wasn't much needed by the time she arrived so she had gone to his command headquarters, waiting for orders. She hoped troops would arrive anyway and she would have command again.

(It is time that Ju-Long meets Huyan :P)

Ju-Long Bai was riding behind Jiang Meixiu while the crack troops were marching behind them. He felt that his horse was slower than normal, but he was to blame. He put on his heavy armor which consisted out his lamellar cuirass, his iron gauntlets, iron greaves, iron shins and iron plated shoes. He only missed a helmet, because he rather had his red bandana on. He knew the armor set is heavy, but that gave him a secure feeling.

While arriving at the grain supply of the city the crack troops automatically took over with no resistance. Jiang Meixiu quickly assigned Ju-Long Bai to his next assignment and it was to report to the HQ that the supply has been secured and bring in new orders. He looked at Jiang Meixiu, who supervised everything with confidence, Ju-Long Bai was impressed. He had his orders, while men were shouting behind his back he left for the HQ, to find and report to this Huyan Lie.

Arriving at the HQ a guard quickly met him and asked Ju-Long Bai to state his business. Ju-Long Bai responded with that he has a report for Huyan Lie regarding the grain supply. The guard nodded and escorted Ju-Long Bai to the place where Huyan Lie could be. The guard shouted out "Report!" and stood still.

Ju-Long Bai walked towards Huyan Lie and his armor started to make clinking sounds. He took a fair distance between Huyan and himself, rested on his left knee and clasped his hands together and said gently, yet with his rough voice, "Report from the grain supply. Captain Jiang Meixiu captured and secured the supply with no resistance. Captain Jiang and this warrior are waiting for further instructions from the HQ." and waited...

(Heroes meet for the 1st time! :D)

At the sound of clinking armor, Huyan Lie turns from his study of the tactical map to see a powerfully built military officer approaching. Caught by surprise as the man suddenly knelt down in greeting, Huyan Lie hurriedly kneels down as well and with both arms lift him up.

"Sir! You show me too great an honor! Please get up!"

As Ju-long Bai stands up. Huyan Lie clasps his hands and bows in greeting. "Sir. You must be looking for the Grand Administrator. He has stepped out to gather his lieutenants. He will be back very soon."

"I am Huyan Lie, a mere commoner. His Excellency the Senior Political Advisor Cai Bin summoned me here to assist in the pacifying of the riots. Though I have not much by way of talent, I have audaciously answered his summons and agreed to come."

"May I ask what is your name Sir?"


Though the situation is urgent, Huyan Lie does not skip basic courtesy but expresses his respect for Ju-long Bai as is appropriate for one of his rank.

Dai Ren had seemed to have quickly brought the west under control and she wasn't much needed by the time she arrived so she had gone to his command headquarters, waiting for orders. She hoped troops would arrive anyway and she would have command again.


The march from the central complex had been a quick one. Dai Ren ordered his troops to double time it in order to seize the initiative from the rioters, and it had been the right call. Runners and messengers had been coming and going through his command area with reports of the goings on from the city. His operation had met with as much success as could've been hoped for, and he was relieved when the report came of the success of Liu Shentong's operation as well. It seemed that Jiang Yan was finally being brought to heel with the presence of the Grand Administrator, as he had maintained his position in the armory. So far that area was quiet, and Dai Ren hoped it remained that way.

His position in front of the civil office was as secure as it could be. Fifty of his troops had been stationed atop and directly around the office, while the other fifty were organized into patrols of five with orders to report any other gatherings or troubles before engaging hostiles. Dai Ren stood in his makeshift command pavilion in the courtyard of the office surveying a map of the city. With a small canopy providing shade, he stood over a table with figures representing his patrols and the other forces within the city arrayed as precisely as he could manage based on the reports he received. He wore his breastplate and his sword belt for this day, showing his favoring of mobility for the time being. His armor was well polished, but unadorned. Well maintained, but simple; Exactly how he liked it.

As Li Jun approached he straightened and raised a hand in hailing before resting his hands behind his back. He spoke in his trademark flat voice.
"Captain. No difficulties as of yet, Emperor be praised. I have patrols on the lookout, so we'll be ready just in case, but all is quiet now."

Li Jun saluted in return. She was grateful for the shade and the chance to catch her breath before whatever he next task would be.

"You seem to have done as well as I expect from you Captain. Clean up and repairs will take awhile but at least there is a sense of... fragile calm. May I?"

If given permission, she adjusted the pieces on the map to what she had been told. There were always signs of a riot for a few days, buildings vandalized, wood and rubbish in odd places but as far as she could see, Dai Ren had managed to stop the violence which is all that could be asked for right now.

Ju-Long was a bit of confused, but the friendliness and humbleness of Huyan Lie made him smile friendly and put him at ease. When Huyan Lie bowed Ju-Long also clasped his hands and bowed in greeting.

WesternConqueror wrote:"I am Huyan Lie, a mere commoner. His Excellency the Senior Political Advisor Cai Bin summoned me here to assist in the pacifying of the riots. Though I have not much by way of talent, I have audaciously answered his summons and agreed to come."
"May I ask what is your name, Sir?"


Ju-Long Bai answered his question with a smile “My apologies Master Huyan, I go by the name Ju-Long Bai and consider myself a humble breeder from Xiang Ping.” And ended with a small bow. “For now I act as an aide and a warrior under Captian Jiang Meixiu.” He looked around and saw the tactical map and said to break the ice “Well a mere commoner that keeps himself busy with a tactical map, a commoner you are!” and let out a blusterous laugh and smiled.

During his laughing, he thought that perhaps he could insult the man, even though it was not his intentions. He just has a difficult time connecting with other people and he is confident to do his best. His face turned a bit serious and continued gentle, yet with his rough voice “Master, I came to bring out a report. Captain Jiang captured the grain supply and secured it. As we speak the crack troops are forming formations, putting up defenses and taking guard duties. The captain is waiting for me to bring good news and the next order to fulfill.” With that said he looked around uneasy. He continued a bit nervous with a softer voice “Master, to be frankly, I am new to these ‘court formalities’…” and gave Huyan a bow “So please correct me and excuse me when I do not live up to the court standards.” Hopefully, Huyan will understand that his actions, if they are, meant well and not to be rude.

The young man smiles at Ju-long Bai's laughter. He takes a closer look at the officer, whose bold confident mannerism, and swift fluid movements, set him apart as a consummate warrior and gifted leader of men especially on the field of battle. Huyan Lie is pleased to find one of such frank and open nature. And already he is liking this jovial soldier.

"Officer Ju-long is a frank and open-hearted hero. There's no need to worry about etiquette. Huyan Lie is honored to meet you this day."

"Thank you for your report. Excellent work there Sir. I'll make sure this news gets to the Grand Administrator."


Huyan Lie waves a guard over and gives him instructions to look for the Grand Administrator, and to pass him the news that the Granaries have been secured. Finished, he turns back to the waiting Ju-long Bai.

"Our time is short. If you will Sir, please step over here." Huyan Lie politely and respectfully gestures towards the tactical map hanging on the wall.

He proceeds to give the officer a quick rundown on the tactical situation, as well as his orders from Liu Shentong. Striding over to the table, Huyan Lie picks up a single strip of bamboo from among several others that are laid out neatly on the polished black wooden surface. He turns back to Ju-long Bai.

"Officer Ju-long Bai receive your orders!"

As Ju-long Bai snaps to attention, Huyan Lie continues.

"The Grand Administrator's orders. You are to rally together two thousand soldiers, and together with Captain Gongsun Ji and his regiment, you will make haste to Iron Forge alley."

"Your 1st mission, is to pacify all disturbances in the area. The boundaries are as follows: Iron Forge Alley to the West, City Hall to the South, and the city walls to the North and East. You are to do so with minimal bloodshed and casualties among your troops, the rioters, and the citizens of the city."

"After the area is secured, your 2nd mission, is to clear the streets and impose a strict curfew."


Huyan Lie hands the bamboo strip over to Ju-long Bai.

"Captain Gongsun Ji is in overall command of this operation . You are his 2nd in command."

"You are permitted to use lethal force only as a last resort to complete your mission."

"Captain Gongsun's unit is Blue Phoenix. And your unit's designation - Red Tiger."


The young Xiongnu reaches out with his hands and grasps Ju-long Bai's shoulders. His voice softens, but the steel edge of deep conviction and determination, and the crisp ring of hope remains clearly audible.

"Officer Ju-long. Once your troops are gathered and in order, you may join up with Captain Gongsun and begin your march to Iron Forge Alley."

"May the Heavens strengthen your arms and grant you success in your mission."

"And when you return, we shall all go have a good drink together!

He nodded and stepped back from the table, allowing Li Jun to move the pieces accordingly. "Hmm... I see. So another group has appeared in the north, and the group to the south has strengthened... I did not know this is the lower class's doing... Dai Ren looked up from the table to survey the area. He sighed, his exasperation beginning to show.

"We all belong to the Empire, Captain. I cannot understand why they choose to riot. So many young and healthy bodies, we could put these men to use. We could give them a purpose, a direction in their life, but instead they choose..this? How could this be the better choice? When I look around and see what the Emperor has provided for us here, how could anyone complain?

Li Jun didn't often see Dai Ren so exasperated, so frustrated. No matter how bad things would get with a guard or member of the public, Dai Ren was a calm, firm figure, the revolt against the Han must have cut deep. Or perhaps it was simply a revolt against a regime he believed in? Li Jun's time out with injury had given her some distance from the regime but she was sympathetic with his hurt.

"Remember the good feeling when Shentong finally became lord? It would all be so different from the corrupt regime of the past, things would get better, a fresh start. We felt it, they felt it but we knew it would take time but for them, expectations have been dashed. With all that has gone on, from harshness of one guard to humiliation of another, and then the demand for taxes come...."

She sighed.

"Your right, this is a waste. I don't know if the rioters have a plan beyond overspilled anger but all it will lead to is livelihoods wrecked by the damage, death and some who will be marked by being jailed after the arrests. If they had just have waited, I'm sure things would have been fixed, we just needed time."

Dai Ren paused for a while, thinking about his comrade's words. For a time, the only sounds were the wind against the canopy and the lapping of the fabric against its supports. He resisted the urge to begin drumming his fingers on the table, keeping them clenched behind his back as he stared blankly at the table. "I thought the Governor was weak. Concerned only with his greed. We are better without him and those who fled, but... We endured that regime for years after the Turbans, and nothing like this ever occurred."

He trailed off, leaving the thought unfinished. There were too many variables for someone like Dai Ren to consider all the possible reasons why they were in their current predicament. Were they too weak? Are the people that desperate? Were they that vulnerable to rebel plots? Better men could figure out a reason quicker than he could. Even so, he found he was having a difficult time trying to stymie his thoughts from the topic. Dai Ren was not comfortable feeling helpless against it all.

"Time is all we ever need. I'm sure our path is the right one, it has to be, we just need to time to make it so." He sighed through his nose.

((Well our characters met, we have an excuse after the riot :P))

WesternConqueror wrote:"Officer Ju-long is a frank and open-hearted hero. There is no need to worry about etiquette. Huyan Lie is honored to meet you this day."


Ju-Long Bai smiled and responded with a small nod,
“The pleasure is all mine Master Huyan, to meet a bright man like the sun, so versatile like water and keen as an eagle. But please, I do not consider myself a hero. I am a simple man, who happens to be here when this all happened.”

He sighed and continued showing a bit of disappointment,
"If it wasn't for La... Captian Jiang Meixiu, I probably ignored this situation..." he quickly corrected himself "Wait... That came out wrong. I would not ignore it but I would not be helpful like now, so I will commit myself to the people of Wan. Like everyone, they also deserve a life without worries."

WesternConqueror wrote:As Ju-long Bai snaps to attention, Huyan Lie continues. - Huyan Lie hands the bamboo strip over to Ju-long Bai. - "Captain Gongsun's unit is Blue Phoenix. And your unit's designation - Red Tiger." -


Ju-Long Bai listened with full attention and seriousness. After Huyan was finished with his briefing Ju-Long Bai thought about the orders. Even though he is the aide of Jiang Meixiu this was a duty that needs to be fulfilled. He thought about this Gongsun Ji. Gongsun... A common name in the north...

He made a bow while reaching his arms out to receive the bamboo strip from Huyan Lie.
"Master Huyan, I shall do my best to fulfill my duty. I shall report and join Captain Gongsun immediately. If you will excuse me, we have no time to waste..." and he took several steps backward. He took a last deep bow, turned around and walked towards the door.

Before he left the room he turned his face towards Huyan Lie and said with a smile,
"I like my cups warm, like my wine." and let out a thunderous laugh while exiting the room. His laugh and clinging of his armor was heard throughout the hallways, and slowly they faded.

For Ju-Long Bai, the name Huyan Lie was a name to remember. He looked forward to drinking some wine or tea with this man. His life became more and more interesting...

Pacify the Riots; Uniting the People

OOC - It's fine Achira. :)

Xu Yuan, Mat

Huyan Lie watches as Ju-long Bai strides out without delay to go about his mission. A shadow of a smile plays on his lips as he briefly contemplates the short encounter with the Captain. Such a man is as reliable as can be. And probably a friend in times of trouble too. He turns back quickly to his task at hand.

Based on discussions between the Grand Administrator, Senior Political Advisor, and himself, the trio had managed to clarify the strategic situation and devise a plan to deal with the riots. Huyan Lie had been the one to pen down Liu Shentong's orders onto parchments and bamboo strips, depending on what those orders were, ready to be dispatched to the various officers in the field. Calling for the guard, the young man asks that messengers come attend him. As the soldiers arrive, Huyan Lie picks up the parchment rolls and bamboo strips one by one and hands them out to each man, with clear accompanying instructions as to where and who each dispatch is to go to. Each messenger receives his assigned dispatch with a bow and leaves immediately to his mission.

Once he is done, the young man takes a quick look at the tapestry map once again, then strides out to the main hall where Cai Bin is organizing the medical aid teams and the associated logistics for the aid station. Black-clad servants and armored soldiers gather around the Senior Advisor, receive their orders, then rush off to whatever task they had been assigned. It is a picture of good solid planning and efficient organization. And the Senior Advisor stood right in the middle of it all, the brains of the whole operation. Huyan Lie watches quietly for a moment, trying to perhaps learn something from the Senior Advisor, perhaps to gain an insight or two into the managing of people and logistics, at such scale, and in such short notice.

"Esteemed Sir. I have completed the dispatch of orders to the field officers. I shall go now to join the Grand Administrator and move out with his troops to the South of the city. The Headquarters are now in your skillful hands. May the Heavens have favor be upon you Senior Advisor, that your efforts and plans will come to successful fruition, and that you will be kept safe."

The Path

Cai Bin grimaced as he looked back at the suddenly confused mass of officials and lower-officers, they were clearly not expecting to be left in the command center without any high officer to direct them. He bowed low to his lord. "Forgive Your Servant, Grand Administrator. It is my heart's desire to speak to the people and settle them, yet I am afraid that we have left no one to settle the affairs of an Aid Station. I lack talent, but there is none but me who can intercede in this affair. I trust it to no other present aside from Your Grace and you are needed elsewhere. I will assure that the Aid Station is in full operation, then I will ask to be escorted to your side to speak to the people's hearts and bring this terrible occurrence to an end."

With this said he rose listened to the plans provided. He nodded along with much of it, the finer points alluded him but this was not his area of expertise. As Huyan Lie finished. the elder turned to the young man. "The means of a curfew are well and good, but in the hands of a rough man it will only bring rough feelings to the people. I will write a short announcement to be delivered to each district by my Aides who will assure that my nuance is not lost. They will travel with the Curfew Setters and speak on their behalf. Provide me several minutes and I will have a speech prepared for them to give."

Having prepared his announcement he gave it to Ju-long Bai before he set out and proceeded to set up the Aid Station. His authoritative voice filled the office as officers and clerks buzzed around him. "Call in all available personnel. What's that?
Lucky Ling Qu? Yes, him too." The elder received a status report from several scouts he sent out. "Lady ShangGuan is present? By any means bring them all. We need all available hands!" The officers bowed and quickly left to their assigned tasks. He turned to face another report. "The poorer districts are restless? Pull back all Civil personnel not with Ju-long Bai and gather them here. I will not have our Civil Officials risk themselves." Cai Bin drew a line on the map from the Southern Riot location to the Main Hall and wrote down a number. "Our troops won't be able to engage before this watch. Once that time has elapsed move to the unit's side and resupply them and bring back any troops that have suffered grievous injury. The purpose of the Aid Station is as much for the troops as it is for the people." The sub-officer gave a military salute and left. This pattern continued with the other riot points. Throughout the din of the proceedings a young girl's voice broke the constant buzzing, she too was garbed as one of his Aides. "Master! Captain Li Jun has rejoined with the disparate units in the North of the city!" Cai Bin let out a contented sigh, "Very good, very good."

As he saw Huyan Lie he turned to give him his attention. His tone was less harsh, "Huyan Lie, you have been invaluable throughout this. It is not proper to place the blame upon you, I realize that. There are forces moving against us that we have yet to fully comprehend. They seek to damage the essential tie which holds a state together, faith in authority. We will combat their methods anyway that we can." He turned to look at the officers who now seemed to better understand their tasks and duties. "When this state of affairs here is concluded, I will join you and the Grand Administrator. Fight well Huyan Lie, but remember now these people are misguided and beguiled. Do not lose sight of yourself upon the battlefield." He gave the young man a military salute before turning back to meet another report.

UnholyBlade wrote:Dai Ren paused for a while, thinking about his comrade's words. For a time, the only sounds were the wind against the canopy and the lapping of the fabric against its supports. He resisted the urge to begin drumming his fingers on the table, keeping them clenched behind his back as he stared blankly at the table. "I thought the Governor was weak. Concerned only with his greed. We are better without him and those who fled, but... We endured that regime for years after the Turbans, and nothing like this ever occurred."

He trailed off, leaving the thought unfinished. There were too many variables for someone like Dai Ren to consider all the possible reasons why they were in their current predicament. Were they too weak? Are the people that desperate? Were they that vulnerable to rebel plots? Better men could figure out a reason quicker than he could. Even so, he found he was having a difficult time trying to stymie his thoughts from the topic. Dai Ren was not comfortable feeling helpless against it all.

"Time is all we ever need. I'm sure our path is the right one, it has to be, we just need to time to make it so." He sighed through his nose.


Li Jun left Dai Ren thinks things through, she was comfortable in the silence and she knew filling in the gaps would help neither of them. When he bemoaned the last governor.

"Our last governor was indeed corrupt and weak. Maybe we all got used to how things were under him but why they would rebel now? I can not say, I suspect Cai Bin would be better placed to answer then me. Hope dashed perhaps?"

Li Jun placed a hand on Dai Ren's shoulder, he seemed quite down a the lack of belief in Shentong's regime.

"We need time and for things to settle down. Once we bring the riot under control, that will hopefully cool things down and give us the breathing space we needed."
