Wan City General Roleplay

Dao Lang's eyes widened as the man's palm caught him in the back. Thank goodness he wasn't leaning too hard against the counter and had room to move forward. He wasn't entirely sure, but...one of his ribs may have landed on the other side of the city. He shuddered and struggled to stay aloft with a groaning attempt at a chortle. This man may be more dangerous as a friend than an enemy.
He wrapped his mind around what the man was saying in between the shots of pain in his back. He was a frail man, not the stalwart youth he had been some ten...twenty...okay so Dao was never really a stalwart person. He was born into minor wealth and more than quintupled said wealth by employing people who benefited him and cheating those who didn't.
"Me? Well I--" he froze, seeing the swollen hand coming for him once again. He nimbly dodged out of the way of the man's playful slap, and by nimbly I clearly mean he fell - tripping daftly out of the man's reach and just managing to keep his footing as he planted himself against a small table nearby. "Why don't we sit and talk at this nice...wide table."
He was still half-breathless from the jaunt back from the garrison, not to mention his recent assault by the man he was now befriending, and now he was pretty sure he'd just twisted his ankle in his attempt to dodge. If he survived lunch he would definitely dedicate himself to restoring his lost youthful strength and vigor. Well...maybe not all of it, but a modicum. Well, at least a bit...a tad, perhaps?
He made sure to seat himself at the square table in a way that would put the large man out of arm's reach from him. He was hesitant to order wine for fear the man would become violent when drunk - or worse...friendlier. He motioned toward the merchant. "Tea for my new friend and I."
He looked back at the hungry warrior and smiled as best he could. "Where was I? Ah, yes...I was just meeting with the garrison to secure some support for my potential ascension to power. You see I am not actually a noble, per se. In case you are unaware, there has recently been a few openings within the local city's government. There are some clamoring to have me take a relatively elevated position of office. Prefect, or perhaps even magistrate."
He fingered his chin gingerly, he was so very...very sore from the lack of sleep, the travelling, and now his new friend's physical advances. "Sadly there are also some who would rather see me cut out of the picture. You know...a good warrior such as yourself would be a fine addition to my supporters if you'd be interested in getting close to someone looking at eventual power?"
"I'm sure I could find a weapon of some kind for you at my estate..." He looked the man up and down again, almost muttering. "Perhaps a pillar from my empty storehouse?"

[Open RP] it's been a while since I write something in English ... never been good at it either.

Huang Dong watched the empty class gloomily.

The first thing he did when he reached Wan, was to purchase a house and set up a school. After few days of promotion around the neighborhood, he got himself few pupils. Since he didn't set a price, many people sent their kids to him. They paid him with daily necessities like rice, vegetables, livestock and sometimes home brewed wine.

Rarely they paid him with money.

It wasn't much but it was enough, and it helped him to have a good relation with his neighbors. Of course he told no one that he was an army deserter. He made up story about serving the army and resigned after having an accident, long before the rebellion started. Overall, he was quite happy with his current life, but lately, less and less children came to his school.

'Damn rebels...', he quietly muttered to himself.

Huang Dong massaged his shoulder and neck. There was nothing to do today. He was thinking about going to the city hall, but after a while, he decided not to.

'I had enough with any official business.... I just want to live quietly. Who cares about who will win this war? It makes no difference for people like me...', he thought to himself.

The short curfuffle over the rather strong back slap was somewhat amusing, though when hearing he had gained some support to hold such a position as Prefect, or even Magistrate...Feixiang regretted is action, or perhaps actions..fortuntately the man had managed to nimbly miss and nonchalantly place himself at a table; allowing breathing space between himself and the mountain of flesh. "Tea would be nice, oddly, the warrior life is full of wine..and I don't know why, but for me, I just don't think it tastes good. After all, when placed in charge of the farms and guarding the villages being intoxicated wouldn't have helped." Intoxicated?..good word..wasn't entirely sure on how he knew what that word was, but he was proud nonethless. Taking a seat at the table, Feixiang was somewhat impressed by this man and enjoyed that he had a sense of humour, unlike the others..the government officials didn't seem to know the existence of humour. Chuckling the Rotund Elephant took a look around the area, the man sat before him so generous to offer not only a meal but also a new weapon to replace the whole that was clear. "So you could hold that kind of power, over this city?"

Feixiang took another glance, realising that this man proclaiming to have supportors, in number enough to elovate him to the stature of Prefect or even a Magistrate...was pretty much, alone. Was this man a mere fool? To come out in the open and allow any of his opponents to take advantage of the vulnerability. "I have to ask...if you are moving to such a place of power, why do you lack any form of protection? I see no bodyguard and, your clothes..it is evident that any could take you down in an instant..do you not fear the corruption people use to take away a foe that stands before them?" Though this mass seemed quite dimwitted, he was fairly good at school and his father taught Feixiang very well..he just prefered a much more, simpler life. Taking a breath, as the tea was being served Feixiang took into what he said..officials were easy picking and history has served well to know that guards were paramount to not only enforcement but protection. "Or perhaps, are you so arrogant that you believe that day wouldn't come?" A gentle sip was taken of the tea, surprisingly so...his mother's doing, when it came to eating and table ettiquete that was slapped into him to always be a gentlemen - after all, the less mess the less need of cleaning after oneself. Placing the cup onto the table Feixiang leaned his chin onto his tightened fist, quite intrigued by what this man had to say of the situation..he believed that he made a good point. "A weapon?..you would simply hand me a weapon, that easily... I'm guessing you will expect something in return?"

Dao Lang gingerly chuckled as the food and tea were served. "There is a captain in the city guard who is a little more popular than I. I invoke pride in the city and an assurance of wealth and efficiency in the people; he also invokes pride in the city, but he's big and tall and scary to anyone who would dare to fight him. He hides in his barrack surrounded by soldiers and sends others to do his bidding for him."
He shrugged. "Truth be told, at this stage of my life I do not fear death. I am in no condition to fight off any of the valiant men that Captain has under his control. And most of my supporters are common citizens, merchants, and civil officials...putting them between me and a guard leader would just be adding bodies to this Captain's..."
Body count? He was going to say body count. Such a redundant sentence, he was better than that. He was also very tired and stressed.
"...to his body count."

He sipped his tea and gingerly picked at the roast before him. "I have a talent for seeing the hidden..."
Oh good lord, man...talent twice in the same sentence now, too? I'm losing my touch; what if this were Master Cai, you'd be laughed out of the council chambers.
"...hidden talent in men and women." He grit his teeth and tried to laugh. "I can see that you have a talent. It is sad that you haven't had the opportunity to utilize your talents properly. Should you be willing to join me and support me, perhaps it would be to our mutual benefit."
He ripped off a piece of meat with his hands and nibbled at it. "If for no other reason, having a man of your talents standing beside me would convince the soldiers that backing me is a good prospect. The wealth and fame I could bring you would show them that following me is prosperous for all, regardless of their station."
He shrugged and laughed. "And if all else fails, maybe the Captain will send an assassin after all and you'll get to hammer someone in the skull."

RCS wrote:"...to his body count."


The picture that this man was painting of this so called Captain was not one that Feixiang favored, he had met men like him...he had protected crops, villages..the weak, from those that instead desire to use force to gain what they want - granted, that is what men even as Feixiang were placed upon this earth to do...to use strength, however, it was not in his nature to use it for such corrupt gain. A frown was visible on the rotund elephant's face, as the official continued to talk...body count?... "..that...bully.." He shifted on his seat, most surprising of all that he was not the first to take a bite from the lamb leg..nor had he made an attempt to, the subject matter had taken a serious turn and one that desired concentration..especially when attention was usually taken away by the mere smell of meat. "I do not know who you are talking about, yet...it seems...familiar. The villagers, the crops...all I did to protect them from bandits, the raids and.." It was a subject that did not lay comfortable with the mountain of flesh, as his own family could be included in that equation. "..my father told me that a true leader does not hide within the centre..he stands at the vanguard, his blade is the first to swing and the last. To protect those that follow him, not back away and have the less prepared take the brunt...it...it isn't right."

Feixiang was irritated, his hand became a fist and slammed onto the table. He was not entirely sure why he was being stirred this way...he enjoyed simplicity, though perhaps now such a life was out of reach - or, this was the path to the life he desired?.. Finally, a piece of meat was taken and devored with gusto...the fire had been lit and it roared. "You say your followers are simply officials, ministers, commoners and the downtrodden?.. Just as I did before.. It seems you have gone a long time without guardians, those who look to you for aid..how can you aid them without anyone who has held a weapon? Who has trained?..If you take power, who will patrol? Who will defend those who cannot defend themselves?.....are you leading the defenseless to defend the defenseless?" It was turning into a riddle and Feixiang could not help but allow the utter rubbish flood from his mouth, another morsel chomped...this meat was delicious and.. A smile appeared, a coy glint as he looked over the official. "Then that it is.. Leave the crushing to me, I have to see a man with my size" A hearty chortle bellowed..though it was true, the size of Feixiang was quite a sight.. "Even without a weapon, let them come. At worst, I will simply sit on them - or...roll at them, like a boulder....that would be a sight!"

Two hands upon the table, the mountain of a man pushed himself up and out of the seat to shuffle next to the official, the last person he had prostrated to was a farmer - this seemed a lot better. Taking to one knee, Feixiang pulled his arms infront of his chest and placed hand to hand, cupping in the manner of a subordinate to a superior..head lowered. "Your opposition now have a mountain to get through to be in your presence, if needed, I will be more than grateful to become your guard..or simply to aid those who are too weak." Eyes closed, head lowered...just as his father taught him..he would play death's hand for this man. Feixiang was not of the scholars, an intellectual, but he was loyal and ferocious when needed. It would be evident that indeed he would make himself a mountain to halt anyone wishing to harm the official...well, his lord now...

There was something invigorating about getting someone to agree with you that Dao Lang could never get over. This also gave him a new guardsman, one who would work for the only pittance he could provide: Food and shelter. He brought his hands together in a salute. "Excellent, Master..."
And there was the drop in the brain. They'd technically forgotten the introductions.

[Open RP] - Lady Pu Cele's Pub, the Morning after the Morning of Many Magistrates
Calistoknight wrote:Xu Bao laughed mildly at the man's comment and eagerly took the ordered drink. After a few wines Xu Bao's face was starting to become flush as the alcohol was starting to take affect. "Well if the Captain never leaves his post they'd have to make someone else Magistrate or we'll have to escort the rebel leader in to duel the Captain." Xu Bao laughed at the image that formed in his head, one of the rebel leader being marched in by the city guards to the Captain's office and having the Captain leap onto his desk sword drawn to fight the leader since he's too busy to leave the place.

"But you never know, with all the responsibilities that come with being leader of our fair city, they may need someone to step in as garrison leader.. maybe you can command them there, or what's left of em." He looked up from his cups and smiled "Sure lets have Lady Pu divine our fortune, hopefully it's good if it's not I'll need more to drink" The blacksmith let out another belly laugh, obviously the drinks were affecting him more and more.


As they waited for Pu Cele to arrive with the diviner ale, Jia Chun responded to Xu Bao's employment suggestion with a hearty laugh. "I'm no good at being at the top, I lack presence and charisma!" He slapped his armored belly for emphasis. "I shine when I get to appear from nowhere and beat folks black and blue while they're laughing at me. They never see it coming!" He laughed again and arranged their cups and other assorted trinkets into a rough map of the province. "This here, is Wan." He trailed along the river, towards the south. "Give me good horses, and I'd be in the rebels' face-" He stopped short of the candle that represented Xiang Yang "-before they even finished packing for the trip!" He punched the air playfully.

Future prefect

Coming to the end of the market, which was quickly emptying, Be stopped to peer over the goods left on one of the more trusted stands. Nothing stood out but he warmly greeted the vendor before moving away with Li Jun - who, in turn, was causing more than a few nerves among the remaining merchants.

"Interesting, I didn't realise you were a native of the city. I suppose that inherit knowledge must come in handy when choosing your profession. I was actually born elsewhere, in a remote village of the Central Plains. In my infancy, my father came to Wan with just myself and enough money to live comfortably during my education." His voice sweetened and trailed off, with happy memories distracting him. A bird flying low overhead returned his focus. "I have been a civil servant here all my adult life, doing my best to stay out of trouble and do my humble best to aid the administration - including some... unfortunate characters that I pray we have now dispelled thanks to our cowardly former Magistrate." Angry thoughts now clouded his memories, so he quickly brought the topic back to something more homely.

"Anyway. Do you support a family, Captain Li?" He smiled absent-mindedly, before a look of realisation washed over his face and he shook his head frantically. "Oh I apologise if that is too personal? I am merely intrigued! It is not something one can learn when working through the various documents related to your employment."


Li Jun shrugged at the idea of local knowledge and she she wasn't offended at being asked about family, she merely shook her head.

"I would have become a guard wherever I lived, when jobs are limited then a guaranteed wage is tempting and cities always need guards. As for family, no I have none of my own other then my siblings. What about you, your father married you off yet?"

Out of curiosity, she asked about the father's move, she knew some people regretted moving to such a big city when it wasn't the magical golden place they hoped.

"Was Wan everything your father hoped?"

She had noticed the different reaction of merchants to the two walking officials, no doubt Wai Be was a helpful contact for them, be it signing forms or use of contacts. Whereas perhaps word had spread of earlier events, it maid merchants jumpy for a few days and to be extra clean till fuss died down. When he spoke of the city being cleaned up, she shook her head vigorously and her tone was bitter.

"Will it change? They served under a corrupt magistrate who left us in trouble and now they will suddenly be good administrators? Why would they not revert to old habits?"

Guards

UnholyBlade wrote:He looked at each as they spoke round the table. He nodded to Li Jun after they each had their turn. They've heard their stories before, and respected her for choosing the path she did. He got an odd feeling from Ju-Long. He hadn't heard of his master either, and wasn't sure exactly what to make of him. The man was...cryptic. That was the only word Dai Ren could attribute to the man. Ma Zang however, now there is a good man. Loyal, devoted, driven. A good Emperor's man. He sipped his water before speaking, wondering where his dumplings were.

"My family has given everything for the Emperor. I will follow the same example as my father. Nothing would be as it is without the Emperor. That alone is worth the price."


She expected such an answer from Dai Ren, she had known the staunch Han loyalist well enough. She was not so committed to the Han, it just was the way of things, the Han ruled, the higher ups gave the orders and resources, life went on. It was just there, she would never see the court or make any real impact on the Han but it would be there for her children and her children's children.

A question had been bugging her since she had met Minister Cai, usually at not particularly inconvenient times so she sought answers, perhaps reassurance, from the group.


"Do you think the civil service here will change? They served the last magistrate and his less then... ideal regime and they will have to manage the city under whoever is in charge. Will we simply be providing order and stability, striving to defeat the rebels while the same bunch of people who will keep the same corruption, the same neglect of this city?"

Li Jun had been passing the school on her way to market on her day off when she had heard silence rather then either a droning teacher or the creepy creepy children of Wan so she thought it would be worth checking nothing had gone wrong. She was surprised to see the room so empty other then the one man who was clearly feeling something painful judging by way she was massaging his shoulder and neck.

"Haha, it seems I am remiss. My name is Dao Lang, merchant of Wan. You, good sir, what shall I call you?"


Feixiang seemed a little embarrased, he pledged loyalty to a man so easily without gaining his name...trust, perhaps he should slow such quick ability in trusting someone.. He was fortunate that the blushing of his cheeks could simply be a sign of his own weight, a quick cover that the mountain of flash used to his advantage..all too much. "I apologize, I proclaim loyalty before finding out such vital information as your name." Chuckling a little, he rose from his knees and returned to his seat..Dao Lang?...merchant? A merchant could climb to such heights of Prefect? Well, there have been stranger things..though, he would be business savvy, surely a city needs a man like that - after all, we all do some form of business one way or another. "Lord Dao, or should it be Official Dao?"

Taking in another sliver of meat, he contemplated this day..it was turning out to be quite good. Now he had a path in life again and not only that..a meal ticket - no doubt a big one..being a guard for a high official, one gunning for the station of Prefect or Magistrate...yes, a very good day. "My name is Yuan Zhong...though, most simply call me Feixiang....a name my father called me and then, well..it stuck.. Simply for my size and the fact he would always call me an elephant.. I have come to like it, quite fitting that I found it easy to blossom into a name." Another hearty laugh..indeed...an elephant, this man.. "He would say that I looked like an elephant or beast when charging. Though my size would say otherwise, I can get a lot of speed behind me...which...can be dangerous...or funny." He remembers the last time a scrawny bandit tried to cross his path..it was a hot day and very uncomfortable, he was on his patrol of the village when he saw this man attempting to steal from a merchant..he yelled, the bandit got violent...it didn't end well.....flattened... "So..your current situation...you are aiming for Prefect or Magistrate...how close are you?... I'm sure there is more to climb with only officials and commoners behind you.. I have heard that most high offices need support from those in high places..." Again, information served to him by his father..that was all his education, it came from his father and no tutors.. Though he could see the understanding in it..

Huang Dong turned around and saw a lady, peeked through the opened door to the empty class. He smiled politely and shrugged his shoulder.

"Well... as you can see.", he turned to look around the empty tables and once again shrugged his shoulder.

Still looking at the empty class, he massaged his neck and said, "Could be worse... At least they already pay their tuition for this month."

Li Jun looked around the empty class-room again, was unusual to see people pay for something and not use it but these were uncertain times. Even for teachers it would seem. It did occur to her that it could be a reflection on the teaching but she felt it would be rude to mention that so she tried to sound sympathetic and practical.

"Rebel armies coming, governor has fled, I'm afraid people will think short term. Get what money they can and till there is security, which will be awhile, you might want to consider taking on another job if you can. What skills do you have to offer?"

Again with the neck rub.

"Is your neck alright sir?"

I can but seek out the other men of standing in the region and see if we might be able to keep the city secure and the people protected, and take our course of action from there. If you wish to come along then, good sir, I will not mind the company. Though, I'm a bit of a slow pace to my motions, I'm afraid. So you'll have to bear with me.

"A long travel down the road is something I haven't done in many years, and my time behind a writing table has been ... well, unkind to my ongoing stamina." He motioned to his girth and shrugged with a chuckle. "I am Sun Ru, a humble coin counter I'm afraid, not a man of much more standing or honor than that."

Offering a modest bow to the warrior, his hands clasped in sign of salute before he returned to sitting and finishing the last of his food. "Though, what we will find in Wan, one can only speculate."

Upon the fellow introducing himself as a government official, albeit a coin-counter, Gongsun Ji saluted him sharply. "Let us see what good might be done. At the very least, all this chaotic business should shake things up a bit, eh? Whole system needs a shake-up... there are enough self-proclaimed loyalists in the north to come south and ensure the unity of All Under Heaven, but it would not suit their individual interests..."

"I am Gongsun Ji, Lieutenant-Gen- er... just Gongsun Ji these days actually," he faltered. "While I make less than polite company, should we travel together, you are welcome to ride the old beast-" Ji jerked his thumb over his shoulder to his tea-drinking pony, "- as it will assist in the speed of 'your motion', as you put it. All these years of fancy eating have really slowed you down," he shovelled another handful of lentils into his mouth as he finished the sentence. "But luckily for you," he continued almost unintelligibly through the crunch-crunch-crunch of his jaw working, "I know a thing or two about going places fast. But you see I often have trouble figuring out where those places should be. Which is where I'm hoping you'll come in handy. At least until we reach Wan, if not further."

"Might I ask when you planned to make your way, Master Sun? Do you have any worldly good you plan to bring along with you? I can unfortunately tell you that I don't need a coin-counter to account for all those in my possession..." he cackled darkly.

Dong Zhou wrote:Li Jun looked around the empty class-room again, was unusual to see people pay for something and not use it but these were uncertain times. Even for teachers it would seem. It did occur to her that it could be a reflection on the teaching but she felt it would be rude to mention that so she tried to sound sympathetic and practical.

"Rebel armies coming, governor has fled, I'm afraid people will think short term. Get what money they can and till there is security, which will be awhile, you might want to consider taking on another job if you can. What skills do you have to offer?"

Again with the neck rub.

"Is your neck alright sir?"


"Uh... it's fine... It's just some old habit of mine.", Huang Dong unconsciously massaged his neck, before he realized it and awkwardly put his hand down.

It seemed that he couldn't keep his hand idle, as soon as he put one of his hand down, the other one began to lightly tap his nose, "Well, I kinda jack of all trade. I have a bit of skills with ship and ..."

He quietly listed everything he learned in his youth, setting fire to things around him. Hide and ambush people. Put the sharp end of his sword on someone's chest. Lead bunch of brawlers to fight and run around.

"Uhm... well I guess there isn't much I can offer.", he hesitated for a moment, "I have some skill in arm and some experience at plunged into a large scale battle."

Dao Lang nodded and smiled. "Yes, Feixiao it is then. Most just call me Master Dao for now. A sizable amount of the city's officials and citizens want someone from outside the old administration. Someone with a history of success in the civilian sector. So...soon it will be Lord Dao, I suppose."
Or the late Master Dao, depending on how Liu Shentong reacted to Dao's continued gathering of support.
"Very soon I will be inviting the Captain to my home to discuss the finalization of the new city government. I doubt he will just...roll over and hand me the title of Magistrate, but I have enough support to claim the position of Prefect of the city."
He frowned a bit and sighed as he picked off another piece of roast. "Assuming he does not try to synch his own nomination by eliminating me. I'm sure I could outdo the man in administrative capabilities and outsmart him easily enough, but face-to-face...he would destroy me."
His back was still sore from the large man's playful swat. "I'm, honestly, not much of a fighter. A vigorous child would probably best me in combat, but I will insult him to tears before he can assault me."
He laughed and gently stuffed the piece of meat into his mouth.

Table of Guards

Ma Zang had finished two cups of wine and ordered another while the others spoke. Dai Ren seemed like someone who Zang could get along with, same as the Captain. Though it seemed to Zang that her commitment was lacking. Shouldn't a soldier be ready to die at any moment for his empire? This is what he had always believed... Regardless, Zang knew what he believed and was sticking to it.

You have no reason to fear Captain Li! I will not be so easy for the rebels to take down! I have been preparing my whole life for an opportunity as this! Besides, Captain Shentong said that the people were choosing the new Magistrate. With a new face there I'm sure the city won't be ignored as before! HAHA!

Zang's wine arrived and he poured himself another cup. Sipping this one, his face became a tad flush as he continued to speak.

What dos it matter for us anyways? Isn't it our job to FIGHT and DESTROY these rebels!

Zang pounded the table as he finished his words. He then proceeded to finish his wine and pour himself another cup.
