Faction Overview Strategic Overview History


The Yue have the power of Nobility.

If some nations are said to have "the best of both worlds" then Yue could well fit the bill. Like her larger neighbour to the west, Chu, multicultural Yue rules over a land of vast opportunities — rare resources and a strategic position on the South China Sea all bring the promise of riches and great glory through mastery of trade and the waters of China.

Yue armies are masters of fighting in riparian regions. Yue infantry doctrine favours the use of cheap but high-quality iron weapons — a novelty in a world just learning how to smith iron — in ferocious light infantry assaults. On water, Yue like the other Viet nations boasts a vast number of warships in excess of what other nations of the Chinese heartland could ever dream of. For this reason, Yue has managed to evade the fate of smaller statelets within the Chinese sphere, and with help from Chu and Qin even annexed her rival Wu to the northeast, yet true hegemony over the other states of China thus far has eluded Yue's rulers thus far. What else now would it take in order to bring All Under Heaven under the banner of Yue? That question could well be answered by you.
