Forge Your Own Brotherhood in the Warlords

Brotherhood & Sisterhood is another unique feature of The Warlords. In ancient China, the brotherhood was everything, and this is what makes up the soul of the Warlords. In the game, three players can be sworn brothers or sisters. After that, they will share Kung Fu and their enemy list. When encountering emergencies, brothers or sisters can instantly be called to come to the rescue.

This was a custom most famously romanticized in the historical novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms". In the novel, in one of the most famous sections titled, "Oath of the Peach Garden" three warriors Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei became sworn brothers in a special ceremony amongst blossoming peach trees. As it is said, in 188 AD, in the county of Zhuo, the three met by chance and soon discovered they all shared a common desire to serve the country in the chaotic times. The next day they swore their oaths as brothers where Liu Bei was ranked the eldest, Guan Yu the second, and Zhang Fei the youngest. Combining their forces allowed them to quickly muster up more than 300 local men, forged weapons, acquire horses, and joined in the fight to repel the rebelling Yellow Turbans.

The oath, as it appears in the Wikisource English translation of Romance of the Three Kingdoms/Chapter 1, was this:

When saying the names Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei, although the surnames are different, yet we have come together as brothers. From this day forward, we shall join forces for a common purpose, and come to each other's aid in times of crisis. We shall avenge the nation from above, and pacify the citizenry from below. We seek not to be born on the same day, in the same month and in the same year. We merely hope to die on the same day, in the same month and in the same year. May the gods of heaven and earth attest to what is in our hearts. If we should ever do anything to betray our friendship, may the gods in heaven strike us dead.

This illustrates the deep bond that sworn brothers can share and "The Warlords" tries to recreate this setting. Go out and find other players who share your fervour and take down the rebelling hordes!
