Hello everyone! Today, we’re continuing the Three Kingdoms Storyline series by looking at the card, Three Visits. Here is part one, and here’s part two. In case you didn’t know, the Magic: the Gathering set Portal Three Kingdoms is based on the Chinese Three Kingdoms period. Let’s dive into this story.
In the last year of the Han Dynasty, during the chaos, with the rebel warlords rising up, one specific warlord, Liu Bei was planning. Liu Bei is of the royal family, and his goal is to restore the Han Dynasty. In the previous story, he took a oath of brotherhood with Guan Yu and Zhang Fei, known as the Peach Garden Oath. Liu Bei has heard of the great strategist, Zhu Geliang. Liu Bei and his brothers went to Zhu Geliang’s house to try to sway him to their side.
The first time they went to his house, he was not there. The second time, he was still away. This time, Liu Bei left a respectful note.
After a longer period of time, they once again prepared to visit Zhu Geliang. However, Zhang Fei was getting impatient. He said, “Let me go by myself! If I find him, I’ll tie him up and bring him back!” Liu Bei told him he could not be so impolite.
So they set off. This time, Zhu Geliang was home, but asleep, according to his servant. Liu Bei and his brothers waited outside until he had woken up from his nap, and then went to go see him.
Zhu Geliang was impressed by Liu Bei, and agreed to go and support him.
This is the story of the Three Visits.
