Ravaging Times

chapter 147

(I need to read this over, no time right now)

The first requirement for world domination is to have Benevolence and Righteousness.

[general]: We’ve been traveling all night, let’s disappear!
/*
here Mr. Chen purposely writes out how this person is pronuncing the word “rest”,
which is transcribed as the word for “disappear”
*/

[soldier 1]: Disappear? He means “rest”, right?
[soldier 2]: By his accent, that General must be a northerner.

[soldier 1]: Strange, it looks like our transport group has all kinds of people.
[soldier 2]: I heard that they were gathered in a hurry.

chapter 147 The Requirements Are Met

[soldier 3]: The front most group is from Xincheng, and next to them are men from Yizhou.
[soldier 4]: All these temps… It seems lord Yuan Shu really was in a hurry.

[soldier 5]: But lord Yuan is quite tolerant; he’s still rushing the supplies to Sun Ce even when the latter has caused this much trouble.
[soldier 6]: Yeah, I bet he’d be dead if his Lord was someone else.

[Liao Lan]: Excellent. Let these men go home once this trip is over, and they’ll spread this story around.

[?]: Signal. They’re here.
[LL]: Remain silent. We should act like we don’t know what’s going on.

[Huang Gai]: Liao Lan?
{Huang Gai}
[HG]: You… why are you here?

[LL]: My Lord sent me to deliver the supplies to you.
[LL]: Brother Huang looks anxious. Is something wrong?

[HG]: Liao Lan, how many soldiers do you have?

[LL]: Not many. But if you want… we can borrow from Dongancheng that’s nearby.

[Ji Ling]: The two joined forces and are heading for the inn.

[general 1]: The plan proceeds smoothly, and after they find Sun Ce’s corpse… we can move on to the next step.
[general 2]: Later when we connect Wancheng and Dongancheng, we’ll be able to defend against Liu Biao as well as extending our influence down the Eastern region.

[JL]: That’s in the far future; what should we do now?

[general 1]: First we’re obeying our Lord’s wish to send supplies to Wan to help Sun Ce.
[general 2]: But along the way we unexpectedly find him in an inn, killed by soldiers from Wan.

[general]: And then General Liao immediately joins Sun Ce’s subordinates in a vengeful campaign, but then finds something in the hands of the enemy.

[JL]: Right, the soldiers of Wan obtained that thing from Sun Ce. The ambition of the Sun clan…
[JL]: exposed.

[Ji]: Therefore loyal and patriotic men such as yourselves will promptly let your Lord handle it.
[general x]: Yessir.

[general y]: Reinforcements from Dongan, prepare to move out!

[JL]: Ok, now for you patriotic scholars.

[scholar]: Yessir. We’ll spread the news of Sun Ce’s death as we go from place to place,
[scholar]: and then say how the warlords are corrupt, and that it’s time for a new ruler.

[scholar]: The most important thing we must emphasize is our Lord’s tolerance, and that he’s forced to accept the Mandate for the peace of the world.
[scholar]: Don’t worry! People are most gullible at a time like this.

[JL]: Right. Our Lord’s goal for a dynasty change… seems even easier than the Yellow Turban rebellion.

[scholar]: Divide into five groups. Take some men with you.

[JL]: Vice commander.
[vice]: Sir!

[JL]: The biggest dissenter – to our Lord’s wish to take the throne – would be that “Imperial Uncle”.

[vice]: Yes, that Liu Bei is known for his benevolence, but… Advisor had a strategy to take care of him.
[vice]: The key is that man’s inclination…

[JL]: What do you think?

The first requirement for dominating the battlefield is to stay alive.

{sfx: ka}
{headband reads: exact revenge to clear hatred}

[Liaoyuan Huo]: It’s stuck!

{sfx: ka}

[LYH]: It’s too long.

[soldiers]: They have nowhere to run! Charge!

{sfx: pong~}

[Guo Ang]: As they say, the longer, the stronger.
/*
as I was learning this phrase, it refers to having a long weapon (long spear vs. sword)
making you more distant from your enemy, thus “safer” for you, making you “stronger”
*/

[soldiers]: Whoa!

{sfx: ka~}

Running away is even better!

[soldiers]: They… they got pulled up there!

{sfx: ka~}

{sfx: ka~}

[Clear Wind Triad fighter]: Keep pulling! Just one more step!

{sfx: hoo~}

[LYH]: Good job! Everybody retreat!

[fighter]: No! Xiao Meng told us to get you out first!

What?

{sfx: cha~}

{shouting: kill~}

[Gan Ning]: You’re kidding!

{sfx: guh}

[GN]: How can it be a woman?

You’re kidding.
