Anyone here interested in Chinese history such as the 3 kingdoms of 220-280 where Wei, Wu and Shu were around?

I've always been fascinated with the Three Kingdoms period, although I haven't studied it much beyond a general understanding of what went on. My interest was actually sparked by a video game by Koei in the early 90's called Romance of the Three Kingdoms (there are more modern versions available under the same title). In the game you took the role of one of the various houses with the goal of unifying the country.

Read Romance of the Three Kingdoms, but remember that book is more fantasy than history.

My favorite quite: "I'd rather betray the world than let it betray me." - Cao Cao

Very interesting background story to the quote:

Lü Boshe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I see plenty of parallels to this in the modern world today..

It is an interesting part of history to me, mainly because I've learned what I do know about it from a video game series which became one of my favorites of all time. Dynasty Warriors, which is based off the three kingdoms years and the events prior to it.
