Ma Dieu fought many battles with his armies against bigger foes for his survival, but mainly to conquer land in the name of The Son of Even. Since the Emperor assassination he prepared a great revenge against the Hegemon King who is with no doubt responsible of the Emperor death!

He was delayed to do so by the rebels in Wu who constantly put him in a state of war. He had to shoe them that his armies where able to stand and fight when check and that he could use, with is allies, great stratagem to conquer cities. He hurt them enough in the past month to be able to raise an army against Chu, but he could'nt do it alone... he send many letters to his allies trying to convince them to attack, but few answers his call, only the most courageous leader of men decide to mobilise troops around Chu to prepared an invasion that everyone believe to be impossible to do. His strategy was theoretically simple, but not as simple to do. He had chosen his General wisely: most of them knew how to perform successful attack on the supply line other where send to distract officers while Ma Dieu and Zhu Lizhi's commander Suo Yang where there to hold the line. The arrival of Tian Rong in the army secured the opportunity he had and he began to march and send missive to his ally to march simultaneously against Chu.

Word of the attack had reached Hin Wu spies and he used that knowledge to march to help the King: the army was massive and never he had seen so many troops on the battlefield. The first few days where hard on casualties and Xiang Yu prove himself to be efficient at breaking Ma and Suo line. They hold long enough to see the supply burned, the victory was so close and at that moment he taught that nothing could possibly save the King of Chu.

The arrival of fresh troops and food supply couldn't be stoped and Baocen Peng arrives with more than 50000 troops to help the King! Ma Dieu didn't expect one of his allies to help the Hegemon King and in front of a melee near 5 time his, no one would had whisper a word against his decision if Dieu had announced a full retreat. The strategy was the same and Ma Dieu and Zhu Lizhi's commander Suo Yang believed they could hold the line at least for few more days. He took advice from Sun Chao and Tian Rong and they also believe that it was possible to burn the remaining supply before the end of the month. The gamble was great, but in the end MA DIEU AND ZHU LIZHI prevailed!!! The sound of The Hegemon King's retreat was a music to is hear and he finally saw the King of Chu fleeing at full haste leaving everything behind exept Guan Huang body!!

Zhao Ren wrote:Tian Rong - Triumphant

In triumph, Tian Rong went to the Duke of Huainan, and once let past the guards, he offered a humble salute and said, "My congratulations, Duke Ma! The dog, Xiang Yu, has proven himself a coward and fled the field. The land of Chu is yours, and the hegemony of the Hegemon King is no more."


Ma Dieu had the same expression of joy and accomplishment when he saw Tian Rong he gave him his word that he will get rid of Xiang Yu reign or end his life before the end of the month, seeing the army retreat was a relief so many men died and so many more where captured. ''The Victory is one we obtain together by doing what we do best on the field of battle. Without your help I don't think I would still be alive today especially with Baocen Peng reinforcement.'' A temporary camp had been made near Chen to prepared the arrival in the capital of Ma Dieu, Zhu Lizhi and his general. We didn't capture the King, but I doubt he will be a treath to anyone now he laugh briefly but sincerely, Tian Rong will you march on my side into the capital and into the palace of Chen? We will celebrate our glorious victory and later on we could prepare the documents and give you the right to rule over Yue!

''The honor is all mine, your troops where most welcome on the field of battle and I certainly couldn't get rid of the King if your Magistrate was not there to help me hold the line! Later we will march together in the Capital of Chen and into the palace for celebrations: I will be glad to have you on my side from there we could discuss more of our plans for the followings months.'' he rub is chin thinking for a brief moment ''Since you are here maybe you will like to talk with one of the prisonner since he helped you in the past: Duke Hin Wu is a captive and fought alonside Xiang Yu''

OOC: maybe we can make the prisonner come to us when everyone who wish to be in the RP said a word

Jin Shi wrote:"General Ma Su of Wei." he announced simply. He would wait and see how things would play out.


''Cousin Ma!'' he says with a smile ''I am glad that you made the journey to celebrate our victory against the Hegemon King: the army of Chu where not indestructible after all!!! Now we need to rebuilt and I will need your help to do so: your advice is important in this matter and I will like you to be at our council that will take place in a few days in the palace of Chen we need to give time to everyone to arrive meanwhile you should stay in Chen I have a lot to talk! You will probably be surprised to hear that we capture the Duke of Liang, but not to hear that the Tyran escaped...''

A message is sent out from inside the palace in the city to Ma Dieu
Ma Dieu

I congratulate you on your recent victory and I await my capture inside the palace. I do humbly request a meeting with you to discuss the present and future accompanied by tea. I would also warmly welcome any other visitors you bring as well with you. I hope to meet you soon. I will await your arrival inside the palace audience hall.

Still some people were making a late escape out of the palace. In the center the only peace of the palace remained. A man, Xue Shi, Sits with a small kneeling table in front of him. Upon the table are a many assortment of different teas and a tea set. Xue Shi calmly made tea awaiting for the victorious conquerers to arrive. His fate was unknown and this would most likely determine the fate of Xue Shi. He sat still not to worried about the events that would follow. Taking a look around the audience hall nearly everything not stuck to the ground had been broken or taken by the escaping men. The banners of the Chu king had either fallen from the mass movement of men, torn by Anti-chu, or torn by the rushing guards holding out there weapons. Xue Shi gave a smile as he returned to making tea.

Xiang Yu and his small party were well away from the battle before the Hegemon was capable of speech. His mind would hold no thought but one - a bright hot desire for revenge. He imagined Ma Dieu dying by his hand over and over. This man he had supported himself, he had given him forces only to be betrayed by him apparently at the behest of TIan Rong. Those with him understood the anger however and the small party rode until they were safe from the battle. Eventually they made camp in a secluded hollow near a small stream.

They had few servants but those quickly made the small group comfortable. Xiang Yu knelt in the middle of the camp and tried to regain control of his raging mind. Xiang Bo, meanwhile, searched the gory remains of the fighter his nephew had killed. Finding all that was valuable he brought them to the king and said, "Nephew, these arms are quite valuable. Perhaps we may ransom our kinsmen with them?"

This caught Xiang Yu's attention finally. Not only his cousin but his newest kinsman Xiang Hin - they were both in the hands of the enemy. Something must be done about that. He examined the equipment carefully. Seeing a treatise there he picked it up and began to read.

Xiang Yu equips Treatise on Smashing Heads +7 Jud

After a moment he calls over a servant, and begins to give orders.


Later


A odd party arrives at the command camp of Ma Dieu. They are non-threatening and bear a flag of parley. As the group approaches the guards a very small man comes forward, hesitantly, and in a timid voice says, "We come from Xiang Yu with a message for your master. Xiang Yu is willing to return the body of your hero, with his arms, if you return his kinsman, Xiang Zhuang as well as Duke Hin." The small man then waited, shaking slightly, to see what would happen. He had, until recently, served the consort of the Hegemon and had never thought to do more than ensure that the Lady's rooms were fresh and that she had every comfort she wished for. He had never thought to be in battle. Refusing Xiang Yu was not an option, however.

Lizhi: yes i can always rely on him to manage to hold the lines, i am quite lucky that he chose to serve me since i have taken Xiuwu. And i would be happy to follow you to Chen and celebrate with you.

She gave Mei a small look, she knew well that if one of them was going to enjoy the celebrations would be her.

Lizhi: And yes, we will need to carfully plan what will come next, for surly there some warlords will try to act on this, and douth not all in a favorable maner.

When Ma Dieu mention Hin Wu, she couldnt help but lower her look for a moment. She had heard that he had came to help the king, and it wasent a new she had been happy to hear. She did owe the man for him help defending Yin mear months ago.

Lizhi: yes, i would very much like to talk to him...

The news arrive to Ma Dieu's ears and he made the party come to meet him inside his tent (note that all weapons are remove and a search is made before entering). ''It is wise for Xiang Yu to send such a beautiful women to parlement a release of prisonner. Tell your master to come with Guang Body and equipment here and I will realease Xiang Zhuang. I will realease Duke Hin Wu right away to show him that I can be trusted. I have no mercy on the battlfield, but will never hurt a man in a diplomatic mission. Also tell him that the capital his secured by my army and no one is getting in our out: if he wish to have his relative getting out of the city safely he must bring my Champion and his equipment back before the sunset (considering it's the morning). Make Duke Hin Wu come: he is to be release, I wish to know if he had a word to say before leaving and if he wish to join be on our side for the healing process...''
Hin Wu was brought into Ma Dieu's tent where everyone else was. ''Duke Hin Wu'' Dieu bow with respect ''you fought well on the field of battle I remember fighting great battle on your side... I hold no grudge against you because I know you did what you believe that was right to do when you did it. Now you are facing a new reality and I wish to have you as an ally to heal and rebuilt: I do not wish for you to make a decision now, but if you wish to help us rebuilt you are invited to come at the council that will be hold in the beginning of February: a missive will be send to you: your presence will be most welcome and your absence will be seen as a declaration of war between our nation. We prepared your horse (horse +1 speed) with what you will need for your journey, if it is your desire an escort will be prepared for you to return home safely. I took the liberty of borrowing your books to read them I will give them back to you when you return in February...''

A letter was send to Xue Shi:

Greeting,

I have military affairs to attend before I could meet you in person: my guards have been told to let you free to remain in the area of your quarter until we meet in person. I have sealed the city until everything is done outside, I am eager to meet a man like you, a man ready to rebuilt on stronger foundation.

OOC : I will RP the prisonner release and enter the city not long after :)

To say that the month had not been kind to Duke Hin was a vast understatement. He had scrupled to go about with a full stomach as his men went hungry, and the privation was apparent. A slight man to begin with, his frame was now gaunt, his skin sallow. Deep shadows surrounded his bloodshot eyes. The bruising from his capture was healing, but the right side of his face was still a landscape of purple and sickly yellow, and he walked with a pronounced limp when not being simply dragged by the much larger guards.

His attempt to return Ma Dieu's bow caused him to wince in pain, or it might have been the man's assertion that he had fought well. Hin knew the truth, if he had been something besides a peasant in Duke's clothing, impersonating a military officer, Xiang Yu would have swept this rabble from Chu with ease. His spasm of pain had reopened a troublesome split in his lower lip, and a few droplets of blood formed there.

His voice sounded infinitely tired, barely more than a whisper from a throat that had been parched for weeks. "I thank the Marquis for his mercy, and will carefully consider his words. I would ask that he show clemency to the many men of Chu that he has captured, they are hungry and sick..." as if to punctuate his point, Wu suffers a coughing fit. "but you are their Lord now, and I hope that you will treat them well. If I am absent from this meeting, do not hold it against the good people of Liang... I do not expect to live through the week, once I leave here." The Duke's voice breaks slightly and he has to pause, squeezing his eyes shut before he is able to continue. "By way of escort, I would ask that my man Cao Can be released with me. I will need his strength to make the journey."

She let the small exchange Between Ma Dieu and Hin Wu, but when she heard Hin Wu mention he may not last the week and how sickly he seemed...she had to say somthing, she owed the man for his help.

Lizhi: you could always stay here untill you recover, as stated, you are free to go. But if not sure about your helth that you might not last the week...then you should remain here untill you recover.

(OOC: We might want to take this to Chu RP so that the battle thread can be finished and locked)

"My health?" The captive Duke stares at the girl without comprehension, then looks down at himself whilst rubbing his hand over the bruises on his face. "No, lady, I am not sick to the point of death, though I understand I must look it. This-" His hand gesture sweeps down from his face to his waist, calling attention to them "this is nothing that a fortnight of real rest and good food and drink will not remedy. Certainly a hardship I have earned."

He brings his hands to his face again, this time to daub at his split lip. He lowers his hands slightly to consider the blood on them. "When I leave here, I will go not to Suiyang. I will go to my King, and beg of him that he take the name that he has honored me with, that my failure will not stain it. Then, I imagine, I shall meet the same fate as Guan Huang."

As the five remaining prisoners stood before the victorious Ma Dieu, they glanced about at each other, curious what the rest would say in response to his offer. There was much to be weighed on their minds, and it did not appear as though the victorious commander was going to wait long for their answers. Xiang Zhuang was the first to speak, and he held his head high as he turned away from his comrades to face his enemy. "Not I," he said very calmly. "It is rumored that Xiang Yu has escaped. Rather I die here with my men, than live and face his wrath. For he will return, and the only people who would have more to fear than those who delt him defeat, would be those who chose betrayal at the end." Zhuang stepped forward and pulled open his tunic at the neck. As he lifted his chin towards the sky to expose his bare throat, he nodded. "Do what you must, Lord Ma. I am at peace with my decision."

The others, to the man, stepped back from the fool Xiang, and lowered themselves to their knees. Long Ju, who with a broken ankle took longer to kneel than the rest, spoke on behalf of the group. "Lord Ma, you are most generous, and we the men of Chu will do all in our power to assist you in bringing an end to this chaos. We thank you for your compassion, and will serve willingly, and to the best of our abilities." In unison, the four men pressed their foreheads to the ground and kept them there, though they were curious to see what would happen to Zhuang.

Cao Can, Long Ju, Zao Xuan and Ji Xin have been recruited. Xiang Zhuang has refused. Any further RP on this matter should be taken to the RP thread as noted by Phailak. And questions should go to your Admin Com Thread.
