The camp was set. Days of traveling finally over. The objective of Yuannan in sight. Soldiers adorning near archaic aged armor if any at all were all dragging roped cattle over toward a makeshift altar standing center of the camp.

"The preparation doesn't require a method like this, nephew! It's impractical at best and superstitious at worst. You may be seen in a bad light."

An older male of much slender features, at least compared to Dun, was in fact his uncle Zhou Mao. He was suited in a rusted breastplate and a leather farmer's cap. Him and Dun shared a face except Mao's slumped with age, and chewed on grain with barely any teeth.

Standing behind the altar was Dun, his uncle beside him. He wore his father's armor, a full suit. Grey and aged, the plethora of scars it bares tells the tale of many battles. Along the waist belt, the buckle of a bear's head. He was standing behind this altar, ritualistically lighting a few candles that's been kept in his family for many years.

"The only thing I remember about granpa Zan was something he told me. Dun, he said, we ride an eternal blessing. Our love for our home gift's us heaven's praise. Uncle, if the heaven's are watching then I best acknowledge our rooted tradition. It is what our ancestors would desire."

He stood up, addressing his troops

"We stand to fight a provocateur of chaos! It has long been established well within our rights to stop this from happening! Our families shall not ever have to witness the flames of war, ever! Our heritage demands it! Our lord demands it! The very heavens demands it!"

Troops rally in support to his words.

"We shall make sacrifice of these cattle and we shall feast like our forefathers have before us! We shall dress in our slaughtered's death and gore and ride to our foe! Save all blood and entrails!"

The rally of soldiers and the beating of war drums antagonize the village in the distance.

The banners of King Guodan fluttered across the village, the only sound heard from the walls. The bearded visage of the Nanman king was embroidered upon each one, staring out at the enemies that gathered outside.

A single soldier ran outside, scrambling from the gates and throwing a spear far toward the enemy encampment. A red scarf was tied upon the spear, to make the object stand out in plain view. On the butt of the spear, a scroll was tied.

To the Hordes at my Doorstep,

I brought strength and stability to villages left to rot and you cowards form a pansy little committee to attack me? What are you, the neighborhood watch?

Well, I get it. I'm tougher, stronger, and better-looking than any single one of you jabronis, so you can't possibly fight fair. You gotta team up against little ol' Guodan, and even though I've done more for these people than your whole pussy empire, you want to make a name for yourselves. After all, if you can't fight me one-on-one...hey, a third or a fourth of the credit for taking the champ down is better than living like the no-name cowards you already are, right?

You wanted to poke a bear, you succeeded. I may win or I may lose, but I'm going to be wearing your guts for robes, and brother, I'm a big, big boy so it's gonna take a lot of guts.


Upon closer inspection, some characters were crudely scrawled on the red scarf that read, "EAT. MY. ASS."

The calm grey day blew a gentle wind that carried a soft rain. Men wearing turbans over their nose and mouth's, storing a mixture of blood and filth, Zhou Dun was eating into a cut of cooked ham and observed without afflication. Soon the sound of a voice calling out, rising in volune as a man wearing just a straw mat around his body, speaking the heaviest Guiyang accent.

"Commander Dun! Sir, Guodan's banner flies over the village!" This man hands Zhou Dun the spear thrown into the camp

Zhou Dun's face brighten's, an assured look on his face as he read Guodan's own words.

"He see's me to be a threat so much that he comes himself!? Hah, our chance is upon us!"

"Not just that sir! He's brought near everything!"

Zhou Dun's head snap's at the word everything.

"Everything!? Like literally all he has?! Speak up, man!"

"I don't know all he has sir, it's just a bunch! Their all sorts of tents and banners, like a lot of commands being yelled out!

His uncle, Zhou Mao enters the picture.

He's right nephew, the man has opted to keeping Yuannan, he will make upon our camp soon enough.

Zhou Dun throws the ham to the side in a puffing anger as he begin adourning his armor.

"Dun! No!" Mao rushed in, attempting to calm and stop him.

"Get the hell out of my way, uncle! This man needs to die!

"That's a grand way of getting yourself killed, Dun! Think practical for a moment, he out numbers us, out commands us, he is not lieing. His entourage of officers are well worth their merit in feats.

"He's a barbarian! A dog!"

"Then slay him like one. He can not hold the village for long, he will be on his last legs."

Zhou Mao pulls out a scroll from his waistbelt, handing it to his nephew.

Zhou Dun begins to read it as a look of acceptance came over his face.

"But I can't have a good ritual go to waste.."

"Maybe not, nephew. We surely can't be terrifying in a retreat no matter how monsterous we look, but allow me and a few men to bathe the road in your sacrificial gore as we make retreat. We can hope the smell and miasma will have some sickening effects to his soldiers advancing."

Zhou Dun nodded and gave the order. "I'll rally the vanguard."

Zhou Dun looked out toward the distance, leering at the banners of the self-proclaimed king.

"Soon Guodan..soon.."

Guodan was wiping the blood off his blade, looking rather unhappy.

"Your Grace, victory is ours," the man known as "Sunbeam" reported, "We have captured the enemy commander."

The Nanman king simply grunted in reply.

"Large King, it's about as decisive a victory as you could obtain. We...we literally just captured the enemy commander right off the bat. They're done," Old Man Teng interjected.

Guodan threw his halberd in anger, causing the entire length of the blade to embed itself into the wall of the headquarters. "Yeah, but where's the fun in that? I have three armies invading each of my holdings simultaneously. We're outnumbered, and I wanted this to be worth the fight! Just...smashing a few skulls and capturing their leader isn't exciting! Besides...I promised them blood and guts! This isn't blood and guts, this is a scratch and a captured dum-dum!"

Kicking over a table, he yelled, "I don't like being made a liar!"

Sunbeam rolled his eyes, unaffected by the display of rage. Old Man Teng stood by, unsure of what to say. Finally, Guodan rubbed his temples with his giant fingers and said, "Just...bring the dummy in here. Let's at least sort all of this out."

Some soldiers would lead Zhou Dun into the main buinding of Yuannan, setting the man in front of King Guodan.

Without any further ado, the Nanman giant asked, "So...Zhoodoo...what's your ****ing deal? Did you get what you came for? I'm changing lives here, givin' these people some real protection and some ACTIVE leadership! These villages were ****holes before I took over. And you jabronis take it upon yourselves to fight the good fight against the Big Bad Nanman, right? Was it one of the other idiots who talked you into this, or were you the genius behind this war?"

The drums of war pounded. The heavens would cry this day. The blackening clouds, the rolling thunder. A storm brews. Zhou Dun, The bear of Guiyang stood firm, adressing his men.

"If you are willing to die for Guiyang, I need you. If not, then you are no good to Guiyang. I chose you all because you follow a same dedication as I. The rights of our ancestors and our heritage. I fight for her, and we die for her. This man stands strong well above the numbers we posess, but his move of desperation is only unfavorable to us, his move is risky. However, I will not let this man slay the unwilling. You and I save the grit of her excellence, and with that it's very spirit!

Those last words and his troops stood firm, all that he brought with him and not a single one would leave. Zhou Dun stared off in the distant of where his uncle was heading, leading the retreat.

"I'm sorry uncle, forgive me." Speaking to himself. You were the real commander, you chose me out of necessity to be the symbol..

Thunder surrounds the landscape. Zhou Dun rides atop a mule as his troop follow behind the retreat, but the sudden cries of a battle were imminent.

Sir, enemy troops! They're coming at us!"

"Fight, Men! Fight! For our brothers in arms! For our families! For Guiyang!"

The clashing of steel and the neighing of charging mounts encompassed the scene. Village farmers turned soldiers, some fought without armor, others using only farming tool as weapons. Battle they did. Those hundred men carried a burning spirit that illuminated the very field. One by one men dieing around them. The roads and paths were washed in gore and entrails, and though much was being washed away by rain, the scene was still reminiscent of a hellscape.

Zhou Dun, fashioning a spear of no extrodinary worth, stands on the front line along side his men. His size giving him an incredible reach. The spear bolting through the bodies of enemy combatants like paper and riding to pursue other's. One hundred lives being lost, all to save the life of eight hundred.

The clanking of steel began to diminish. The approaching enemies surrounding Zhou Dun. Blood freely running from his succumbed wounds. An arrow in the stomach, a stab along the shoulder and a broken nose. He heaved heavily, his mule on the ground dieing. Like his father, and his father before him, and his father, he has sacrificed for his home. The last few men attempting to capture him outright meet a very quick death by the spear. All came at once after much difficulty with the bear of a man, they wrestled him. He fought but the long hours left him too exhausted, forced to the ground and close to bleeding to death.

Even at peril, he laughs in their faces.

"You subdue a pig farmer you bunch of pansies."

The large man had to be dragged by at least a dozen good men to Guodan. His face beaten and bruised, blood all about his body.

"So you're the infamous Guodan..pity good talent is wasted on pride!" Blood spurts from his lips as he speaks. His eyes were lacking in much concentration, the exhaustion and pain nearly taking him. "I come on behalf of the hundreds who you claim to protect. These people are forced under your rule, not lead. It was well within my right to take up arms against you. Against anyone willing to threaten mine and the the homes of others."

He stared all around him at the other officer's among the gathering.

"You lead these people astray, Guodan. They know as well as yourself you war against the very Han! Your claimaint is self prescribed, contradicting and insulting his majesty. I 'm from one of these many homes that people talk constantly about the impending war. These kind folk want nothing to do with people like you."

He spoke quite calmly in the scene of his capture, possibly his execution.

"Where's your love for the land? Your honor for your home? These lands are not for conquest, they hold lives! You use those lives Guodan, all to oppose those whose roots are grounded in these fair places! You are strong Guodan, but you lack power. Power of the people's faith.

He forces his mangled body on its feet, all eyes upon him. "I suppose now you'll have me executed then. The highlight of your day may be murdering a pig farmer but mine..is the time honored tradition of serving my land and ancestors." His eyes widened staring up, as if past the very roof. This damaged man defeated felt triumphant. "Father! I've restored the faith! I've commited my blood." Like the bellow of a bosterus bear, Zhou Dun was mad with laughter.

"Heaven's bless Guiyang!"

"Funny getting a lecture on pride coming from a guy like you..." Guodan replied expressionlessly.

Walking over to the wall, he pried his halberd from it and began pacing back and forth.

"There are many kinds of pride, brother. There's the pride that motivates you and gives you confidence in yourself and your abilities," he said, lifting his arms as a means to signal himself, "The kind that makes you want to inspire others and give them something larger than life to believe in."

Pointing his halbert at Zhou Dun, he went on to say, "Then there's the type of pride that makes you self-righteous and delusional. It scrambles your brain and makes you do dumb ****...like leading an army of decent people to a 'glorious death', or whatever you idiots would call it. The kind of pride that makes you see everyone who isn't the same as you as a barbarian or an enemy. Less than you."

Scoffing, the large Nanman said, "These lands are not for conquest, huh? Then why have you dip****s been conquering it back and forth for years amongst your own people, between whatever pissy little faction thought they were more righteous that the rest? I'M the monster, huh? Yeah, right. These people don't give a **** what banner flies over their land, as long as they can live in relative peace and prosperity. Until you *******s decided to pony up as a little 'Anti-Guodan' militia, they were better off under my rule than before I took charge. I'm just tryin' to break the cycle, man..."

Sunbeam and Old Man Teng watched on with expressions of shock. For once, both men thought their leader was...articulate, in a weird 'Guodan' way.

Sighing, the king admitted, "But hey...you got guts, kid. I gotta admit. As brainwashed and creepy as you sound, it takes guts to be as actively dumb as you were in attacking me and thinking you'd get off without a scratch with your buddies backing you up. I admire that. I mean, I don't even want to kill you for it, I almost want to see if you'd want to help me out..."

Looking at the blade of his halberd, he bit his lip and shook his head.

"But...you made it clear that you're that kind of pride. I'm not foolin' myself into thinking I'll win this war and live forever, don't get me wrong. Pretty sure I'll die soon enough, once your little coalition expends enough of those Han lives you claim to value so much and wears my army down. Until that time...you guys brought the fight to me, I'm just playing my part to be the bad guy you want so bad," Guodan said with an apologetic look on his face, "And a promise is a promise, simple as that. It ain't personal. I promised guts, and like I said...'you've got guts, kid."

With that, the massive Nanman king swung his halberd at Zhou Dun, essentially cleaving him in two. The men in the room simply watched. None seem particularly entertained by it, but no one had an issue with the act.

Taking a deep breath, Guodan looked around the room. All eyes turned to him.

"C'mon, guys, I'm not really going to wear his guts as robes...that's just ****ing gross..." he muttered aloud, frowning, "It's called exaggeration, you chumps."

Attendants stepped up to handle the remains of Zhou Dun, one of which handed Guodan a cloth to clean his halberd with.

"I kinda want to give the little guy a respectable funeral, but...I caaaan't really do that, after all the **** he's done and said. It kinda contradicts the point of it all. They came looking to 'mutilate the barbarian and end his terrible reign'! What's the point in being a nice guy to your enemies at that point, right? Self-defeating, if you ask me. Pretty sure they've already got a nice little spot set aside to mount my guts. Probably organized by organ size an' everything..." the king rambled, staring at the dead body as it pooled blood further and further on the floor.

Tapping the butt of his halberd on the floor, he concluded, "Welp, bury the body with the rest of the nameless idiots who died beside him in battle. That's honorable enough. Buuuuut, let's put his head on display outside the village walls for his buddies to see. Gotta show them the cost of their arrogance. They might butcher us all at the end of the line, but we might as well take as many of them down as we can in the meantime..."

Raised eyebrows filled the room as everyone looked at one another in confusion at their king's admission. Regardless, the order was clear, and the men did as he asked. The pig farmer's head would adorn the wall of Yuannan for the time being.

[King Guodan has executed Zhou Dun.]
