Title: Chapter 48 Recruitment
Narrator: The 500 year long war, the Spring and Autumn Warring States Period.
In that relentlessly harsh world, it was as though a "dragon" had invaded.
A dragon called the "era".
Desire, pain, pleasure, despair, fear, the dragon meandered across China devouring everything.
And what dripped from its dully glowing body was
Title: Chapter 48 Recruitment
The many years of warring reduced over one hundred states to merely seven.
To the world, they are known as the "Seven Warring States". [quote bold]

Box Below Wei: Han
Left Box: Qin
Bottom Box: Chu
Narrator: Seven kings stood in China and fought for supremacy.
After a far-too-long 500 years of upheaval,
the people have already given up hope on a time of peace ever arriving.
But the year is 246 BCE.
Now, the "fated king" has taken the throne in the state of "Qin" in the far West.
Narration: The 31st King of Qin, Ying Zheng.
Later known as "Qin Shi Huang". [quote bold]
A young king that took the throne at the tender age of 13, he has no real power and that has still not changed entering the summer of his 2nd year on the throne.
However, just slightly...
Ever so slightly, a westerly wind has begun to blow in China.
Narration: and Xin rode on that wind.
SFX: DON DON DON DON DON
In Bubble: This is awesome.
Narration: First Campaign
10 days earlier-----
A grain storehouse in Qi Village to the east of the Qin Royal Capital Xianyang.
Where'd that Xin guy go?
That guy's fooling around again.
He said something about a new record...
SFX: FURU FURU
Guy: Quit roaring!
Are you all right, Mr. Xing?
SFX: ZAH ZAH
Xin: I'm baaaack!
Diao: Oh! Good work!
I was just finishing dinner.
Man, I'm satisfied!
Diao: ........................I'm kinda pissed.
That battle three months ago feels like it didn't happen.
Diao: Now you're working and earning a little and I'm picking mountain vegetables and stuff to help on paying for food.
Things are just going so normally.
And most of the money is gotten legally.
Mm. It's going normal.
This sure is nice...
Xin: A quick break, I guess.
Diao: No, what I'm saying is
what we're doing is normal. Not a quick break or anything...
Diao: B-But Zheng and the other sure are being cold.
We haven't heard from them one bit since we left the royal palace three months ago.
Xin: I don't think that's really it...
SFX: SUUU SUUU
Xin: Okay, I'm back.
My shoulder that got hurt by Zuoci is totally back to normal.
After all the manual labor I've been doing these three months, the strength of my swing is greater than before.
Zheng: Hurrying is different from rushing.
We're not about to go to a battlefield tomorrow.
First focus on your body healing.
Xin: Even if I don't rush, I can't slack off with preparing for when the time comes.
Now my preparations are done. All that's left is waiting for "the time".
I think I overdid it a bit.
Xin: You can't even read, but you're looking a bulletin board?
Diao: Don't lump me in with you. I can read.
Then what's it say?
To put it in a way that's easy to understand,
The neighboring state, Wei, is attacking. So they're recruiting soldiers.
What'd you say, Diao?!!
Diao: You must be glad, Xin!
You'll finally go on your first campaign!
So go beat the shit out of 'em!
Xin: All riight!!
