A Nation in Peril
On January 1st, 1937, the Republic of China is facing a fight for its life. After decades of violence and political turmoil following the collapse of the Qing Dynasty, the central government in Nanjing has received at least nominal submission from the nation’s warlords. However, with the impending Japanese invasion in the horizon, the brewing storm forced an uneasy alliance between the various parties. Consisting of urban merchants, Nanjing bureaucrats, rural communists, foreign inspired radicals, and unscrupulous warlords, the fractious alliance must come together to rebuild the shattered nation, resist Japanese aggression, and of course, seize power for themselves.
