Faction Overview Strategic Overview History

The Qi have the power of Strategy.


The small state of Qi, situated in China's northeast has risen through her position far away from the conflicts that now rend the nation apart, and the richness of her land, with vast numbers of troops, reinforced by heavy infantry. It will, however, take more than just sheer weight of numbers for Qi to unite All Under Heaven under her banner, however: Qi is not the only great state there is, and while she has managed to minimise the damages of war, she also faces greater challenges to her rule from within her ranks. For many years, infighting between the feudal clans of Jiang and Tian have seen the gradual ascendancy of the Tian over their foes, but their future is far from secure. Neglect has sapped the vitality of Qi's government, and many are the rival states, bidding to usurp Qi's rightful place in China.

Nevertheless, Qi is one of China's great powers, relying heavily  on her armoured infantry to keep her safe, for over the past few centuries, she has become a veritable storehouse of ideas, thanks to the foundation and resurgence of the Jixia Academy. It's due to the Academy that Qi together with her rival Lu form the intellectual nucleus of China with many of Qi's scholars finding places as advisors with many a duke or king.
