Plot Details

Chapter One

Pacifying the North

Gond Zhuo1
The enemies of our race are rising in the north. Raise your armies, and come forth to the northern lands where we shall deal them a blow so save. So destructive that the Charr will hide away for another thousand years.
Cao Sou

Emperor Cao Sou would marshal his forces and would lead the army of Cathay into the northern lands where they battled against a massive Charr army. The Charr had been held dorment by the increasing defences of the northern lands of Cathay, but the intelligence and scouting had told Cao Sou that their dominency was at an end and they were nearing an attack against the northern wall. Basically all the vassals of Emperor Cao Sou would arrive in the north and the Charr would mobilize to battle against Cathay leading to a massive battle and during the battle the forces of Cathay were victorious but suffered extreme casualties including Dong Zhuo's two sons of whom Dong Zhuo would blame Cao Sou's son Zhao Tai for causing the deaths of. Following the battle with the Charr Dong Zhuo begin listening to the whispers of Chaos in order to try and punish Cao Sou and he begin forming the Fang Dynasty into a powerful force only loyal to him, and it was this changing of loyalty that would spark the beggining of the Monsters of the East.
