The F Plus conquers ancient China!
I’ve taken to spending my Sunday afternoons at a local coffee shop playing Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV, and I feel like trying something new with custom officers. So who’s up to jump through a time portal with me to 191 AD and act as an officer as we try to take over ancient China?

Here’s what you should give me to participate:

1. Whether you want a male or a female portrait;
2. Your stat points. You have 350 points to split between Strength, Leadership, Intellect, Politics, and Charisma, with 100 being the maximum for any stat.
3. If you were the mayor of an ancient city, what would your administration focus on?
4. If you commanded an ancient army, how would you try to win fights?
5. What are three good things about you?
6. What is one of your flaws?
7. If you’d like to be a sworn sibling or spouse of someone else in the F Plus (or someone else who lived in China in 191 AD, if you happen to know any), list them here.

Once you’re entered as an officer, I’ll update this thread with our progress. Thanks for participating!

I'm game. I reckon I'm smarter than at least liu bei.

Male portrait.

For Stats, I'll take 100 in Politics and an even spread of 62 over the rest (round out the extra 2 into Intellect).
My administration will mostly be focused on control of local rivers to maintain trade and resources. I'll also get really into taoism and trying to become immortal and following astrology.
My army will rely on a tight core of heavy infantry and cavalry rather than peasant conscripts that will cause famine, and avoid direct conflict whenever possible, instead using spies and astrology to determine the best time to engage.
I'm meritocratic, fairly practical and open to new ideas.
My flaw is I trust all eunuchs. if you're gonna do that you must want to be my friend

Sure I'll go to Ancient China! I have no idea what this is about, but I'm game.

1. Male Portrait plz.
2.
Strength - 80
Leadership - 64
 Intellect - 80
 Politics - 63
 Charisma - 63
3. Keeping the city well supplied and the citizens happy while defending our boarder.
4. I would use the triple line where formations are based on rank and there's gaps within the line between the ranks to allow farther back troops to go forward as needed. (This was a technique commonly used by the Romans)
5. Persistent, Energetic, and Practical
6. Not the most organized
7. Befriend anyone who likes lizards cause I like lizards. And maybe frogs too. Or spiders. If you enjoy weird animals I ally myself with you.

1. Male
2. Strength 100, Leadership 100, Intellect 0, Politics 50, Charisma 100
3. My administration is very into public works - infrastructure, monuments, anything that might require a civil engineer. We have the prettiest city.
4. Fuck load of crossbows. Also a strong focus on fortification and defensive positioning (I have other, cleverer subjects to help with this). Can't kill me if you can't touch me.
5. My best qualities are that I'm quick to recognise when I'm out of my depth and need help, I'm receptive to the needs of my subjects, and that I'm generous in providing assistance to my allies.
6. My worst quality is that I can sometimes stretch my resources too thin to cope with an unexpected emergency.
7. I'm currently single (but ready to mingle).

Count me in.
  • Male portrait
  • Charisma 100, Leadership: 100 Politics: 0. If Strength and Intellect can also be 0 that would be lovely, but otherwise just sort numbers however is easiest.
  • Our city needs an identity that our entire citizenry can be invested in and proud of. To that end, do you know how certain cities have specific musical genres? Like Nola Bounce or Chicago Industrial or DC Hardcore? Our city is like that, but for Ben Wa Balls. Sure, other merchants in other cities may sell some inferior Ben Wa Balls made by industrialists looking to make a quick buck, but our Ben Wall Balls. Crafted by artisans, meticulously weighted, each one forged with pride and sold with a guarantee. Our city's motto: "They Just Fit Different".

2. Charisma: 100, Intellect: 100, Politics: 100, Leadership: 0, Strength: 50
3. Walls. It starts with a few extra fortifications here and there, but gradually becomes an obsession, until eventually all possible funds are directed into making more and more layers of walls, gradually turning the entire city into a winchester mystery house
4. Mostly by going behind the walls. They can't get me if I'm behind my walls! My beautiful, beautiful walls....

Let’s say hello to our first eight officers!

It’s me, your penny-pinching leader.


Sorry, GirlKisser420, but the eunuchs all got massacred by the warlord Dong Zhuo about two years before we arrived in China.


I searched the whole text of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms for references to lizards: no luck, so you get green armor in their honor instead.


K. Thor is the first of many ambitious builders on our team.


Note: the minimum you can have in any stat is 1. Princess Diana Memorial Ballpit Poster is seen here ready for archery.


Hmm… what picture should I use for Lemon as a reminder that I absolutely shouldn’t put him into combat under any circumstances?


The Dragon Carnage technique won’t be very effective with Shell Game’s low strength, but it fits her theme.


Is this a good enough beard for Frank West?


Plenty of slots still open. I’ll take applications until the end of the day Friday.

Sure, I'll join in, why not?

1. Male
2. 100 for CHA and STR, because I approach everything like dnd, and 50 for each of the rest.
3. If my city is anything like me, we'd get hung up on some weird stuff that we're naturally attuned to and kinda let the rest fall by the wayside. Like, hell yeah, we've got an okay hospital or something, let's focus on that and whatever else happens happens.
4. Probably try and get other people on my side to risk losing as few of my dudes as possible. Then if I don't like them, attack when they're all tired for fighting my battles for me. Suckers.
5. Great hair, good at cooking, pretty strong.
6. Impulsive to a fault.
7. Whoever'll have me.

1. Whether you want a male or a female portrait;
Female.

2. 100 strength, 90 charisma, 80 leadership, 55 intelligence, 25 politics

3. If you were the mayor of an ancient city, what would your administration focus on?
Stockpiling food, and then war.

4. If you commanded an ancient army, how would you try to win fights?

5. What are three good things about you?
Swordswoman, poet, good cook.

Vanity.

7. If you’d like to be a sworn sibling or spouse of someone else in the F Plus (or someone else who lived in China in 191 AD, if you happen to know any), list them here.

Whatever feels appropriate.

Excited for this!!

When Sauce says “loud” and “British,” I figure I should give him the picture that looks most like Brian Blessed.


How’s this for great hair?


Chai Tea Latte is about to wreck some dudes in duels.


Still plenty of officer slots available—the game allows me to have up to 150(!) created officers.

Yeah sure, I'll pitch in:

1. Male
2. 40 Strength, 80 Leadership, 100 Intellect, 40 Politics, 90 Charisma
3. I would focus on agriculture and irrigation technology and building food surpluses.
4. Seeking out terrain advantages and disrupting supply lines, possibly even diplomacy
5. Know a bunch of useless trivia, can play a musical instrument, good at teaching
6. Overthinking things to the point of inaction
7. whatever you feel like, got no objections in particular

if there's an avatar with both long hair and a long beard (besides the one you choose for Frank), that's the one for me
