    If the Chinese Student Movement of 1989 had been generalized and had led to the collapse of Communist rule, perhaps a golden age of Jeffersonian Democracy could have emerged;

    >>it is just as likely that a Warring States-style circumstance could have emerged as local bureaucrats. some enriched by China's experiments with export capitalism, others impoverished by the same, took individual initiative to set up their own fiefdoms.

    Is this an awesome game/campaign idea?

    It would've been more awesome if it had actually happened.

    Will this involve some sort of modern day Lu Bu?

    Perhaps the man in the pic is Lu Bu about to fuck up some Freedom-hating tanks

    Does anyone know anything about late 80's China, so that we can write up some factions?

    Don't be so generalistic. This isn't Mercenaries the vidya, this had potential for depth.

    That's certainly better, well done. I think it's important to group the students into a certain group. The idea of a peasant faction is also a pretty good one.

    Would Korea, Japan, Mongolia, Vietnam, etc. have any role in this?
    >> Anonymous 07/02/09(Thu)09:03 No.5069736
    Japan is probably too pacificistic at this period to make a move into China. However, if we refluff world history a bit, we could have a Japanese faction for sure. Korea would probably support another faction rather than be one in and of itself. I don't think Mongolia or Vietnam would be involved in any meaningful way.

    Could we get some more character development?

    Lu Bu as a tank commander is cool, who else?

    I'm getting a Legend of the Five Rings meets Advance Wars vibe from this.

    This is awesome, keep going.
