Faction Overview Strategic Overview History


The Lu have the power of Intrigue.

Once a major power in the east, the influence and prestige of Lu has since then diminished with the rise of the three Huan — the descendents of the younger sons of the late Duke Huan. Since then, Lu has been paralysed by political infighting, even as her neighbours Qi and Chu ever grow stronger, and rumours spread of a new age of total war run rampant on the four winds.

Thus, a strong hand is now required in order to pacify the state, and to fortify it against all other nations Under Heaven. For centuries, Lu's greatest strength has been her adherence to law and ritual, and thus a people strongly wedded to the land and the old ways alike — it was after all in Lu that the ancient emperor Zhi was born, so unsurprisingly, Lu enjoys a strong cultural pedigree that could well help in providing the prestige to the promotion of cultural projects in the name of the state. But in the wake of the domination of the government by the three Huan clans, one must wonder if Lu still can continue its claim to being a paragon of human virtue and jurisprudence in a world that is increasingly chaotic and disorderly.
