The path to being a general.
-> RTS Page for KINGDOM 14
Giants win their 2nd super bowl in 4 years against the same team!!!
Anyway, to the real reason we're all here:
title) The path to being a general.
b1) My name is Bi.
b2) I think you have a right to know
b3) what happened to the rest of us who were surrounded by the enemy
b4) after capt. Wenjun fell off the cliff.
b2) Oh no!! They're at the carriage!!
b3) It's over...
b4) We're going to die out here.
title) -the same as page 1-
b2) DON'T GIVE UP!!
b3) We need to regroup!! We're going to make it through this!!
b1) From that single yell of his, we, who had already fallen to despair, were encouraged to fight once again.
b2) Because I was next in line to the captain, I knew who Piao truly was... so I could barely believe my eyes.
panel1) This is the personal army of general Wang Ji that we're talking about, that he didn't bat an eye at, but lead us into the lion's mouth.
panel2) You would never have guess that was a slave body double, because he looked just like
panel3) a true blue General.
b1) We can do this, WE CAN DO THIS!!
b2) With the amount of people we have, we can break through!!
b3) Lieutenant! Send a group around to the bottom of that cliff and search for Wenjun Chang!
b4) The king is still in need of his services.
b5) My king!! Another division from the left!!
b6) They still had that many left...?
b7) I guess we won't be getting away that easily, huh?
b2) give me strength!!
-I nearly put sword of omens...-
b3) Piao suddenly turned and took on the new enemies on the hill,
b4) because he did, the attack on the rest of us weakened significantly.
panel) I turned back once, only to see Piao on the hill taking on the enemy forces...
b5) I truly thought we would meet up with him here again...
b1) What a disgrace...
b3) We're totally out of the loop.
b4) What's going to happen to us now?
b2) Hey, Xheng...
b3) there's something I need to ask you.
b4) Who's Xheng?
b5) Is there someone here named that? // And what's a slave doing calling someone their name like that?
b6) Wait a minute...
b1) YOU'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT OUR KING ARE YOU!!?
b3) WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TRYING TO PULL, FOOL!!!?
b4) I THINK HE'S LOST HIS MIND!!
b5) X-xin, even considering you don't know much about how the world works, that was pretty bad...
b6) Very few people would dare to say the kings proper name, much less to say it without any respect.
b7) Come on now... dude said it was alright.
b9) Calm down.
b0) I've already overlooked his impudence.
b2) Let me go.
b3) What do you want?
b1) I'm not quite as smart as Piao, so I need you to tell me the specifics.
panel1) Who are you trying to fool? You're as dumb as a brick.
b2) If we keep this up and I kill for you and you get the throne back...
b3) What will you do for me?
b4) Since you're the king, will you grant a wish of mine?
b5) My only wish is to become a general.
b6) So will you make me a general? -small print- Well?
b1) LIKE HELL HE WILL, YOU DAMN FOOL!!!
b3) WILL SOMEONE THROW THIS STUPID KID OUT OF HERE!?
b4) Be quiet, I already know that.
panel) Oh, do you know?
b5) What brought this up?
b6) Piao was really amazing.
b7) That thought was reinforced now after hearing these men speak of him like a hero.
b8) He knew exactly what needed to be done to get what it is he wanted.
b1) I, on the other hand, don't know anything.
b2) Since he knew everything, I figured I'd just go along with him to reach my goal.
b3) But Piao is dead now.
b4) And I'm back to the point of not knowing anything.
b5) So I need you to tell me.
b6) What do I need to do to become a general?
b1) The era where only nobles could become generals has ended.
b2) Within our country, true strength, supremacy and principle have pushed lineage to the back burner.
b3) The system that's in place now allows for anyone to go to war. And if they do well they get promoted, if they keep it up, they'll eventually reach the level of general.
b4) However, that path doesn't exist for you right now.
b5) WHAT!? // Why not!?
panel) The army is made up of men from noble families, // and regular citizens who either enlist or are drafted into the army.
b1) But you, however, are NOT a noble, and you can't enlist either.
b3) You really don't know anything, do you...
panel1) The only one's who can enlist are those who are registered, and they must come from a village that meets certain criteria.
b1) But to a slave like you who doesn't have a place to live,
b2) forget about raising your name through battlefield exploits, you can't even make it to the battles!
b3) Xin, don't feel so bad. Even to nobles, becoming a general is a nearly insurmountable task.
b4) So for a slave like you, it's like trying to reach the stars...
b2) I get it.
b3) Do you really...
b5) Yeah, // I do get it.
b1) SO WHEN YOU GET YOUR THRONE BACK,
b2) YOU'LL GIVE ME A PLACE TO LIVE IN A GOOD VILLAGE, AND EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT!! // Also, make it so that I'm not a slave anymore.
b3) That's exactly right.
b4) DON'T FORGET NOW!!
b5) But you'll need to work 10 times harder than everyone else here.
b6) I'LL WORK 100 TIMES HARDER!!
panel) I can't make heads or tails of his stupidity.
