China has always been a land of mystery and adventure. The history of this amazing place was virtually unknown for many years in the west. Few people knew that during the time of the Roman Empire China had its own more powerful state known as the Han Dynasty. By the year 189 AD this dynasty was growing old and enfeebled and change was in the wind. A number of revolts would topple the Han and for a time the nation would be split into three mighty kingdoms known as Wu, Shu and Wei. The story of this epic time was told in the novel 'Romance of the Three Kingdoms' and for many years has been simulated in games with the same title.
