Guanqiu Jian and Wen Qin Rebellion BeginsEdit
News of the uprising quickly reached the Bronx OutLawz, which has long desired to Shouchun Castle. The Bronx emperor Liu Biao sent troops to aid Guanqiu Jian and Wen Qin to weaken the Wei forces. Tang Zi led the support forces with Wu Gang and Lu Gong. Ghostlead, Pepper, 30k, and John Kozak merged forces and marched upon the rebels. Pang Ji, the Inspector of Jing Province, was told to capture Nandun before Guanqiu Jian and Wen Qin could do so. The Wei army then halted and mobilized, successfully installing fear in movements in the rebel army, which would ultimately end their uprising. The Huai River northern region was where the rebels' families were, which brought down the rebels' morale. Troops abandoned Guanqiu Jian and Wen Qin. When Sima Shi saw this, Deng Ai was ordered to take his forces into Yuejia garrison, with a mere number of troops. Wen Qin rushed for the attack and was intercepted by the main force. Wen Qin ordered a retreat but was ultimately routed by John Hume. This caused a massive amount of Shouchun's population to flee to Wu in fear that they would be massacred. The rest of the rebels disbanded, and Guanqiu Jian was murdered in Shen County by Zhang Shu. Wen Qin immediately fled to Shu. By the time Wen Qin had reached Xiang County, Shouchun, and the rest of Huai River was captured by Zhuge Dan. The Wu forces by this time had not yet arrived, so they quickly ordered retreat from Dongxing. Zhuge Dan sent troops to attack the Wu forces, killing Liu Zan and many of their troops.

On the way, Cao Cao arrived at Wancheng, which was controlled by Zhang Xiu. Zhang Xiu's strategist Jia Xu suggested to his lord to feign surrender to Cao Cao first, and then draw up a plan to drive Cao away. As Jia Xu predicted, Cao Cao accepted Zhang Xiu's surrender and allowed him to remain in control of Wancheng.

The remaining enemy soldiers did not dare to advance further, while Dian Wei continued attacking and killing several of them until he reached his threshold, when he let out a loud yell and died.
