Romance of the Three Kingdoms. It is a novel that was written in the 14th century AD by Luo Guanzhong. It is an epic tale about the events of the fall of the Han Dynasty and the events of the Three Kingdoms era of Chinese history which occurred in the 2nd and 3rd century AD. It is considered one of the most popular pieces of literature in East Asia and has even influenced other media, one of which is video games. One such video game series is Dynasty Warriors.
Dynasty Warriors is a video game series that first came out in 1997, and since then has exploded into an 8 part series spawning many different expansions and spinoffs down the years. It has been popular due to it's fighting system, battle stages, music, story, and in my opinion the most important part of all, it's characters. In fact, that is what this blog series is all about! This is an introduction in a 7-part blog series about the awesome characters of Dynasty Warriors! Only, it's about a certain type of character in the series, and that type of character is the Feminine-Type of Character! That's right! I'm going to write a series of blogs talking about the amazing ladies of Dynasty Warriors, and what I want to see in future ladies of Dynasty Warriors!
I'm now going to break down how these blogs will be set up. Each blog will be about one Kingdom and the ladies in that kingdom. For example, the next blog will be about the Lethal Beauties of Wei. I'll talk briefly about that kingdom and give a short introduction to the ladies of that kingdom.
Background: Next, I'll go into detail with specific ladies. For example, after I talk about the Kingdom of Wei and the ladies in it, I'll then talk specifically about Zhen Ji. I'll go into her background, how many games she's been in, her weapons and general fighting style, and then her general stereotype-*Azure Moon hears the collective disgusted gasps of her readers*-whoa, ok, sorry! Sorry for saying the "S" word, but let's be honest, when you create a character you need to have some type of general characteristic that defines that character in the beginning. Then you later add on to that character to make them more in-depth and interesting. Even after that though, many characters have a general characteristic that generally describes them. For example, you've got mean girls, smart girls, tough girls, tomboys, flirty girls, girly girls, and the list just goes on and on. So, with that being said, I'm going to use these types of general labels to describe some of these girls, but never fear, I will go into more depth in their personality later. For this part of the examination I'll use a general character-type, though.
Love Interest: Next, I'm going to talk about this lady's love interest. Who these ladies choose to get with and marry is a pretty big deal, so I would definitely like to go into who they have given their love to.
Looks and Personality: Next, I'm going to go into an examination of this lady's looks and personality. Here, I'll look at this lady's current and past looks and go into my thoughts about that. Then I will delve a little deeper into the personality and behavior of this lady.
What I Want To See In The Future: Then in this section, I'm going to talk about what I do and don't want to see in future Dynasty Warriors titles. This can include many things from her looks, to her personality, and even to her weapons.
After I talk about the first lady, I will then go into talking about the next, and I will continue doing this until all the ladies in that kingdom have been written about.
What Kind Of Lady(ies) I Want To See In The Future: After all the ladies have been talked about, I will then go into a segment that talks about what kind of new ladies I want to see for that kingdom. This will range from their looks down to their personality. This will, of course, be strictly my opinion. :)
Conclusion: I will then conclude the blog and recap on what I have just discussed!
I will now conclude this blog with a big thanks to all who have just read this! Thank you so much for hearing me ramble for a bit, lol. I can honestly say that even though I have written a few blogs on this site, I am particularly excited about this one. This blog series is one that I have thought about writing practically since I joined this community in late Spring of 2011, so I am EXTREMELY excited to finally get to write this blog series! I want to make a few comments before I finish though:
1) The ladies that I talk about in this blog series are all PLAYABLE characters as of DYNASTY WARRIORS 8.
2) I will be talking about these ladies from my experiences with them from the Dynasty Warriors games, NOT from the novel! However, I might make some allusions to the novel from time to time, but most of what I talk about will be from the games.
3) Most importantly, what I will be talking about will be mostly my OPINION, and even though I welcome everyone's opinions about my own, I would still ask that you remain mature and respectful. :)
Thanks to all who have read my blog, and I hope you enjoy my thoughts on the beautiful and powerful women of Dynasty Warriors!
