Kingdom / Chapter 641
« on: April 30, 2020, 06:13:03 pm »
Ri Shin. I like that. Wonder what the nobles will think, especially General Ou Sen and Shou Hei Kun who are aware not only of their own lineage but the ones they scheme against. You gotta love Shin’s mini city, it looks great. This means all his men could move into the city and roll out together, they could practice battle strategies together and best of all, protect their city together. But I’m dying for the award ceremony because I want to see the faces of everyone when Ei Sei announces Shin’s family name. Ou Ki gave him a warrior’s name China will remember and now and his newly bestowed family will seed roots and hopefully generate a family tree. A big family tree with a ton of little Shins running around all over the place. Hopefully he gets a crest too. I like the dragon. But I’m not sure the Chinese ever developed a family crest but it would be cool to see it on his armor. Speaking of armor, when will he train with Duke's shield?

I have no complaints with how they wrapped up this war. I particularly like that Hou Ken still haunts Shin even in his dreams, actually that was funny. Kinda curious about the plan and method they will devise to free Ri Boku and hope they put the king in the cell and throw away the key. I really don't care one bit how they get rid of him what I want to see is how they rally against Qin's forces under the right ruler, hopefully the prince of Zhao is just as charismatic as Ei Sei. There's actually a lot going on in this chapter in so little time. In fact, the time skip forward could prepare us for a ceremony to celebrate one of Qin's greatest achievements Ei Sei's first monumental feat to unite China under a single banner is turning into a reality. Most, if they haven't already, now realize he means business. This is something no other ruler ever achieved at least not in 500 years. There isn't any doubt in my mind that the other kingdoms are concerned, extremely concerned.

I can’t stop thinking about what Kaku Kai said to Ri Boku. What’s his motivation why did he personally make it a point to tell Ri Boku his execution will be public? I thought all executions for officials were public anyway? Could there be a personal grudge maybe history between the two? I’d like to believe he’s after more than just a high ranking position within the state of Zhao. I’m well aware that the rank of Prime Minister is the highest political position within a royal court and its authority regarded as top-tier and answers only to the King. I get it, it’s a lucrative profession and one that many only dream of. If in fact this is his sole motivation for undermining Ri Boku then it makes it less interesting. His character is completely transparent, that’s the way I see it and where’s the fun in that.

Whether or not the other states like Zhao at this point it doesn’t really matter. No one helped and no one offered help. Yan made a mess of things and nothing would make me feel better if Qin destroyed this state next. For Qin this was an uphill battle nonetheless they forced their way in and will soon control more than a third of the country’s land. And anyone who’s figured out that Qi had anything to do with it may actually become paranoid not knowing if other surrounding states have secretly teamed up with Qin to attack them next, but this won't be right away. Still, do you see what’s happening here? Either they come together or lose everything against Qin. There are two important pieces of data that point as to why Zhao lost this fight. One was the internal strife among the political party that was left unchecked for god knows how long and the other was beyond anyone’s control. Ri Boku’s fate was sealed the moment he decided to ignore that the country is ruled by a lunatic. I’ve said this before, had the king mysteriously disappeared long ago Ou Sen would never have taken on this challenge. Ren Pa did the right thing to abandon Zhao. Anyhow, it looks like the end of the arc is near now that Tou is approaching Retsubi. The smaller states are probably scrambling to make allies if they haven’t already done so, heck they may even begin to increase the number of spies for good measure.

Was it the many distractions that kept Ri Boku so occupied he never considered Qi could assist Ou Sen. Even if there were no direct ties between the two nations the signs were there. The biggest is that this nation is a nation for hire which means the king is a sellout. Ri Boku should know this by now. Not sure I can say with certainty that Qi or rather King Ou Ken is loyal or anything of that sort just that the man enjoys a good deal just like a Ferengi. The way I see it all he did was deliver goods at twice the asking price. So, was this deal made about the same time Qin decided to invade Zhao? Because that’s a ton of food and the largest delivery I’ve ever seen. Then again it could be Qi’s own reserves. Anyway, Shun Sui Ju rubs me the wrong way and I would like to see Mou Ten kick his arse.

Okay. The more I think about it the more I’m like wtf? Food supply on land or sea is common knowledge ask any tactician and he or she will agree it’s a necessity and if neglected don’t expect success. So it’s not a secret, it never was. But here’s where it gets dumb. Whenever you have any number of soldiers moving across a stretch of land particularly in unfamiliar territory you gotta carefully devise a contingency for every possibility, especially for food and water. I don’t believe rations where measured at least not until Heki lost his supply that’s when they begin to calculate, monitor and distribute shares. We have two maybe three strategists planning for months. So why did the food supply just arrive? I have a hard time calling it a strategy it's definitely not a well thought out plan. Reserves in fact stock piles from different avenues should have been readily available to them. This is the mindset of a genius and one that is ten steps ahead but I’m losing my faith in Ou Sen.

Back in chapter 513 King Ou Ken, to me, seemed like he was up to something. This may just be a shot in the dark but what if he is also secretly plotting against Ri Boku and not just from the moment he met with Ei Sei but long before that. What if, he too infiltrated both the Ri Boku army and the Kingdom of Zhao, especially the political realm. Working Zhao’s king from every possible angle against Ri Boku. Now, most of you will claim that he just wanted to see where Ri Boku was, but I think it’s more than this.

This whole thing with Ri Boku and the King is complete nonsense. This would never happen to Ou Sen, in my world the king would have feared him or succumb to a strange illness long ago and replaced. But Ri Boku is just too dumb to see who is killing Zhao. The king is cancer and cancer must be dealt with before it spreads. Anyway, why hasn’t anyone saved Ri Boku from the Royal cavalry? And who is going to replace Ri Boku out in the field? Probably going to be someone who the king likes and finds competent. Coming from the mind of the king it has to be someone as twisted and vile as he. Someone who won’t think twice about sacrificing the common folk, especially the weak and elderly just to save his own skin. I’ve got a feeling that things are about to get worse for Zhao.

I really thought we were going to find out what Ou Sen’s request to Shou Hei Kun was but it didn’t happen in this chapter, maybe in the next and it better be worth it. If we find out Ou Sen want’s more territory in Qin or somewhere else and nothing to do with this mission I’m going to be pissed. Maybe it’s a request to marry a woman or to marry into the royal family. Maybe he wants a political position one with power. 

I can’t solve how or who will get them food. Ou Sen won’t say a word and Ri Boku doesn’t know. It’s got to come from an unknown source, someone we don’t anticipate. But who? No one’s made a move.

Don’t know what happened with Ou Hon and Mou Ten when they traveled as independent armies, but Shin made many friends. Not only did he fight the enemy, he also liberated many along the way. It would be great if any of these person(s) could do something or influence someone in power that could extend the same gratitude he showed them and somehow get them the food they so desperately need.

Oh, this is getting interesting. The food barrels were empty and Kai Oku is enjoying every minute. It’s a distraction and I kinda realized it myself the moment they strolled right up the front door of Retsubi with so many food barrels. One of two things could be what gets the men the food supply the desperately need. Either Yo Tan Wa or another general ship Ou Sen what they need or an outside entity does. And right now, under the cover of darkness, the river seems to be a reasonable method. Ri Boku and his men shouldn’t anticipate this until it’s too late anyway. Unless, there’s a different strategy altogether devised by Ou Sen but the men are so hungry they are ready to submit to any means, well Kan Ki’s men anyway.
