Yet, those rumors proved true. Ying Ou had made himself known to all the land within a single day. General Iroh, a former Qin general, was sent as the messenger of the Third Emperor of the Qin Dynasty. A messenger to the city of Bashang, a messenger of death if the city would not knell and submit to their rightful Emperor. By rumor, it was said the governor was ready to throw General Iroh into the prisons. That governor Na Nisao planned to proclaim the man a fool and to have him hung for his prior service to the Qin. Until reports reached Governor Na during his interview with General Iroh. They proclaimed a army of twenty thousand men marched underneath the banner of the Dragon of the West, General Iroh. In less than a day, the rumors was proven true. The rise of Ying Ou given definition and the hearts of countless left to seize in hope and terror alike. Yet, the soldiers of Qin departed along with General Iroh. Leaving a clear message behind. The city of Bashang had a month to consider its fate. Either it would submit to the rule of Emperor Ying Ou or be burnt to ash.
Rumors and messages began to fly across the land. No longer the favored rumor of bored men, but, the heated rumor of nobles and governor. Fear and hope alike danced upon their tongues. Men openly rose their arms in support of the possible new Emperor while others truly dreaded the thought the Qin's return. Rumors claimed that those who joined and aided the Qin would be given patents of nobility. That they would soon replace the governors of the cities of Sai, Yong, Di, and even Han itself. Barbarians, bandits, nobles, and governors alike entwined their fates with the Qin. Proclaiming they would serve Emperor Ying Ou and aid him in claiming the city of Bashang. A city that would supposedly serve as the new heart of a larger, stronger, and more centralized Qin Dynasty. That the sacked and burnt husk of Xianyang was to be forever cast into the shadows, its former glory forgotten with its fall. That its former glory would soon be forgotten in the brilliance of Bashang's future greatness. Yet, Emperor Ying Ou was a man hidden from common eye. Secluded away within his luxurious tents and trappings. While underneath the eye of the Dragon of the West, the armies of the future Qin state continued to grow. Forty thousand men soon laid underneath the banner of the Qin state. A army of rebels, bandits, and barbarians who sought greed as much as nation or pride.
However, the state of Chu was hardly without response. Within a matter of weeks, a definite response was clear. The armies of Chu would march upon Bashang and stand its side against the forces of the self proclaimed Emperor Ying Ou and General Iroh. Underneath the commission and watchful eye of the Imperial Minister of Inspection, Lù Chén, a army was quickly rose. Thirty thousand veterans underneath the banner of Chu. A veteran force of men who marched upon the province of Sai, seeking to crush the empire they once fought against.
