An overview map of what happens in chapter 296 (pre-battle-of-Guandu).
Unfortunately I don’t know if this is based on the novel (“Romance of the Three Kingdoms”) or the “historical record”. But as an overview it may be helpful in case you’re confused about directions.
I apologize for constantly switching back and forth between location names. It is not constant in the original, and I’m not sure how best to keep them clear and faithful.
Xiaopei = “little Pei” ~ Peixian = “county of Pei”
Xuchang (full name) ~ Xuxian = “county of Xu” ~ Xudu = “Xu capital”
Pengcheng = “city of Peng”
Yecheng = “city of Ye”
xian ~ county (or district?)
zhou ~ province
cheng = city
~ means referencing the same general area/location
= means they are the same, or as gloss translation
