Faction Overview Strategic Overview History


The Jin have the power of Eminence.

Although Korea thus far is poor in arable land, her defensible position as well as the rich natural resources of her woods, hills and seas have been a godsend to the people of Jin, and their struggle for freedom. The confederacy of Jin thus far has managed to survive Choson tyranny by putting up a spirited resistance in the southern mountains, but how much longer can Jin remain independent? rumours of distant war farther north and west have begun trickling down the mountain passes. Should either the Chinese or the barbarians of the northern wastes unite, they may then pose a threat to all Korea, not just the Jin or Choson alone.

Jin lands consist of some of the richest in Korea (as far as Korean standards go), and for this reason alone, as well as Jin's unique location, Jin's cultural bonuses allow for economic booming and naval defence. That said, however, the army is backward and underdeveloped due to Jin's isolation. All told, the best way forward for Jin would be perhaps to seek peace with other nations and leverage its early game resource boom to win through rushing cheap units, but how this strategy would fare against more sophisticated opponents such as Choson or Qin remains to be seen.
