Description: Nearly 2000 years ago, the prosperous Han dynasty of China collapsed. Heroes rose and fell, and three nations emerged--Wei, Shu, and Wu. Historians refer to this period as the Three Kingdoms period. The romance of the three kingdoms is an intriguing tale of heroic deeds, of alliance forged and broken, of loyalty and betrayal...

Hong Kong artist Chan Mou retells this classic tale in "The Ravages of Time" from the perspective of the Sima clan, which in the end united the three kingdoms. Readers will be attracted by an array of well-developed characters and Chan Mou's own unique top-notch art-style. Whether you have played Dynasty Warriors or not, this is definitely worth a read!

Quote of the Chapter (490) - Anyone who celebrates privately after the official award ceremony can never be trusted with important tasks.

Every time Zhuge Liang appeared, it's always a golden chapter. Not only he reveals the fragment of decisive strategy he had, he also add a comment or two related to humanity n virtue. What series can compare with this beautiful mix of, like Guan Yu said, cruelty and mercy? Higher authority will beget higher responsibility. Yet, only few knows that the higher authority should be celebrated humbly by respecting and reflecting to those who sacrifices themselves...

> Repeating Xbow

I'm no expert on the subject, but that repeating crossbow seem kinda anachronistic, I do realise that Zhuge Liang is often credited with improving and popularising the repeating crossbow, but as far as I've understood it his version seem more likely to have been around 2-3 bolts rather than the 10-20 bolt versions used in the Ming and Qing dynasties.

 

The weapon Zhuge created was a battlefield ballista firing 3 to 5 javelin-sized darts at the same time. It was used to break cavalry charges. The repeating crossbow wasn't even a Chinese invention. One of the minority nationalities came up with it back in the Tang dynasty before they were incorporated into China proper. It was developed from a simple crossbow that didn't need metal trigger parts. Proper Chinese crossbows were made with bronze locks.

Too busy I only saw the raws this morning. That said, this chapter was awesome! If only Chen Mou stayed in this battlefield for a while.

I haven't started reading this yet, but is that cover for this manhua perhaps
the scene where Zhao yun rescued Liu bei's son?


Yes.

We have a lot of people being compared to Lu Bu , but recently we also started to have people being compared to Huo. Interesting since Lu Bu and Huo is parallel of each other.

I did the chapter past midnight, uploaded it and went to bed. Now I see I missed the comments. Adding the discord link in the opening page now will only appear in Batoto...I'll try to remember it for the next chapter.

 

Action packed chapter was refreshing! Cao Chun's cavalry rocked  this chapter, but did Gan Ning even meet Gao Shun's chargers before praising the tiger and leopard unit more?

And the flashy entrance of Chen Dao at the end was the best! Too bad the teaser told us there won't be a continuation of this confrontation anytime soon...a bummer

yeah, can't believe the new chapter isn't out yet. in the meantime though, the new discord server is going along well! I encourage everyone to check it out & hang around indefinitely while the population grows, soon it will surely be a lively place with in-depth RoT discussions happening on demand!

 

here is the link to it, make sure to share with all your RoT-loving comrades! http://ravagesoftime.info/discord

How I wish it's clarified soon if Ravages is still a biweekly series, or if it has officially shifted to a triweekly one (or at the very least, it would be great if additional waiting periods are announced in advance).

 

In another note, I find it odd to say the least that other series with less incisive and layered schemes (say, Kingdom or Game of Thrones or Shoukoku no Altair) get so much more dissection and discussion to the point that certain finer details get brought up and enhance (or spoil) the viewing and learning experience... whereas in the case of Ravages, there's hardly much talk (at least among the Anglophone holdouts, given that the 'three kingdoms' of Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai fandom are able to keep things going). Maybe us English-speaking international fans tend to be a quiet and/or busy bunch

 

That being said, now that someone has stepped up to set up a discord server, I'd like to invite the remaining loyalists to join in (would be great too if it gets advertised in the credits of next chapter's scanlation, haha)

Those kids grew up so fast.

 

Any clues about the one-line teaser at the end of the chapter? Guan Yu?

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa damn you Chen Mou! Damn you!

 

That Sun Shang's chapter is bad enough for my heart but then you do this as well!? 

 

Spoiler

Thanks 8 cloud team for this chapter!

 

And this chapter.... is depressing. Hello, NTR my old foe.... 

Ohhhh... A chapter of Ravages came out and I missed out on reading it on that very day... Damn you real life!

 

Thanks Atarame for this chapter! and of course merc too. I see we have a new typesetter. Thanks to you too Elizabeth.

 

So....

 

Regarding this chapter.... The capturing of the three comanderies arc is officially over now I guess? I'll be honest.. I didn't really enjoy this arc very much. But I'll have to read it all from the start I guess..... And what RoT group are we talking about??? 

 

I didn't really enjoyed it either. I dragged on in unnecessary details and then it ended abruptly. As for the group, it's just a new 'scanlation group' name for Batoto to replace the current long one. Website link in opening page but it's nothing special :D

To think that my worries about Han Xuan and the skipped over battle came true in the end (but hey, at least it's not Wei Yan's fault in this adaptation)

 

As for the name, I'll publicly reiterate the suggestion I made a while back: Eight Cloud Unit (八雲部隊)

 

This resource may also be of some interest as far as logo design is concerned: http://www.chinese-tools.com/tools/seal.html

 

I'm more annoyed about the off paneling but I certainly wanted to see more of Han Xuan.

 

I might shorten it to 8 Clouds or go with a simple 'Time Ravagers' (website). As for a logo, I appreciate the link but it would have to include a custom design and the text in English.

I hope that in Ravages of Time, Wei Yan will be given a fair treatment, and be portrait-ed as a ambitious but not a treacherous general.

whats with the symbolism in the end? 

 

Spoiler

Quote of the Chapter (484): History texts are trash literature written to justify the sins of the victors.

I wish the author didn't skip this and I also wished Han Xuan survived. Oh well...

 

Side note: If I were to create a new RoT group, what would you name it? Suggestions welcome.

I don't think so. Remember the very first chapter? Where a monster (who is LYH/ZY) kills Sima Yi? I think that's gonna be the end. But that's still a long, looooooong way to go. I don't exactly remember when Sima Yi died, but it was during the reign of Cao Fang. So like another 40-45 years to go for that (in-universe).

 

I just hope Chen Mou doesn't croak before that. We have barely reached till half the novel. We also have Zhuge Liang's Southern and Northern Expeditions. Rest assured, its going to take a hell of a lot of time. Especially The Northern Expeditions, because its gonna be Dragon vs Wolf, and therefore we're in for a rollercoaster ride of mindfuckery.

 

Yea but it does not close any possibilities though
