Faction Overview Strategic Overview History


The Choson have the power of Dominion.

High and far to the east of the Liao river and ensconced in the mountains of northern Korea lies the kingdom of Choson. Her people are master survivors, and they well have to be so, for in addition to the harshness of the land, they too have to contend with the terrifying might of the Chinese nation as well as the depredations of the Di and Xianyun.

Although Choson thus far is poor in arable land, her defensible position has managed to help the kingdom thrive, as well as profit from previous contacts with China and the barbarian lands. Thus while Choson's infantry component is somewhat backward in comnparison with the Chinese states' she can boast a powerful complement of nomad-style cavalry capable of taking on the field and seizing victory. It is on the back of Choson's horses that survival - and undying glory - might well be wrested from what is otherwise a lost game.
