As long they remains in character's background and doesn't actually appears in the battlefield I'm ok with that...otherwise I'd introduce chinese dragons, Sun Wukong, etc etc in the next chapter.

You've heard of the Iron Throne, how about a literal Dragon's Throne.

Also, apologies to Kuromi for assuming several things. I just thought that performers would know more about courtly intrigue than the average peasant given their profession of entertainers.

It'll be exactly like this RP but based on their lore, history, etc.

I've got several years to choose where, just trying to figure out the thematically relevant place.

Not to be but, maybe you should focus on this RP before thinking on the next one

---------
Bio: Zhiliang was the first son born into a family of landed gentry along the modern-day region of Jiangsu. There he would live his early life in relative freedom and luxury compared to the peasants that worked off of their families land. His venerated ancestor was the strongest and bravest warrior that their village had ever produced and for that, the king had declared his family to elevated to the rank of zǐ(viscount) many generations ago. Zhiliang grew up hearing stories of his venerated ancestor's ferociousness and yet as Zhiliang grew older he could never fight as well as the other men in the village. His family thought him cursed and sent him to the village shaman, but he too couldn't cure him of the curse. Yet when the others shunned or feared him for his curse, he would laugh it off. He poured his time and dedicated himself to furthering his understanding of warfare and court life. At the age of 15, he was sent off into the royal court where he interacted with other scions of noble houses. His natural charisma helped him win many friends and allies among the many nobles of the royal court. At the age of 18, he had managed to succeed his father and had secured an alliance with several noblemen along his region. When the old king had died he rebelled against the new 9-year-old king. His rebellion seemed futile as the king's army had several thousand more men than him yet he secured his victory after launching an attack on the Royal capital. Within two years his rebellion had overthrown the previous dynasty and he was now the King of Jiangsu. He moved the Royal capital to Nanjing and enfeoffed the previous dynasty's family as the duke of Suzhou. Now he waits for the ever-growing chance to strike at the Xia Empire in the north.

Do you think that Yunnan would be able to stand up to Xia if they enlisted the help of the rebel king?

Read my last post to you, a couple pages back, your last post was unacceptable.

Chekhov's Law, remember? Nothing needs to be said that isn't necessary. Writing 10 paragraphs of filler to say "I invite everyone who hates the Xia" isn't efficient nor even following any sort of writing guideline.
