The Butcher's Palanquin

Postby AaronH229 » Sun Dec 30, 2018 4:20 pm

On a remote hillock is a silken grand tent in pink and blue, within resides Hu Jintao, loyal vassal of Han Fu.

A small delegation of Coterie Envoys arrive. Well dressed and regal they were specially trained dignitaries. They make there way to guards of Hu Jintao.

"We seek audience with Master Hu, we represent the High Archon, Prince of Serpents, Shang Bo. We come in peace, but submit to any security protocols."

The guard looks at the group with disdain.

"When the man has the balls to turn up himself then our master will talk to him.

Until then he will not meet an inferior envoy."

The lead envoy was not taking a back. He had expected some resistance. The relationship between the Butcher and the Serpent were more than hostile.

"Surely your Lord cares about the lives of his men surrounded in Guangping? Surely he isn't looking to lie down before all his enemies? I come with the promise of salvation. Surely you'd not rebuke your savior."

The guard looks at the man.

"Terms are simple, Shang Bo returns Julu to my lord and he returns the village to yours. Then he might believe the word of a man who has already broken it once."

The envoy smiled, not the progress he was hoping for but better than the cold reception he original had.

"The terms I have come to present was to invite the Good Lord to the Serpents Court. There he would receive the title of Western Archon, and the right to govern Shang Dang. Provided he would openly declare Shang Bo High Archon. The Serpents are tired of trival matters, the High Archon has larger concerns."

The guard ponders.

"Possible.

However Shangdang is handed over first and the Daqin names for ranks are unneeded.

He will name Shang Bo as his Lord and be General Who Subdues The West."

"But ranks and orders are needed, The Serpents are more than a fiefdom, more than a merchant's guilds, more than an army, more than a family. Hu Jintao will be dubbed Western Archon should he choose to accept the position."

"We do not disagree with ranks, rather the use of an inferior foreign term for a rank."

We our glad you are receptive to our proposition. The High Archon is dealing with matters in Pingyuan, once it is subdued he will be expecting a visit from Archon Hu Jintao. So that everything can be made official. In the meantime, Shang Dang is a part of the Western Archon's holdings and his task is to subjugate the city of Ye. Guangping shall also be provided to help supply resources for this endevour.
