You will find this great historical drama in this egroup
take on your role in this historical drama.
Use your imagination.
I am the Turk Koyunlu Hakan. My tribe the Oghuz mines iron near mount
Utkun of the great Han Tanri mountains. We Turks have 9
tribes, collectively called the Dokuz Oghur. The Uygur tribe is
by princes descended from the Huns of the olden days and is the most
civilized of all. The Turks speak a language close to the Bulgars
(Part of the Huns who invaded Rome), Kazars, Pechenegs to the west.
During my grandfather Yurek Hakan's reign, the Tobgach and the Mujun
Xienpi tribes were rampant on the steppes. They have sent our
archenemy the Ruanruan fleeing to the west and then proceeded in
their conquest of China. The Tobgach established a Chinese style
dynasty south of the steppes, moving tens of thousands of their
kinsmen into China. Therefore Turkic tribes are now roaming free in
the norther steppes. The Tobgach, at times, have to employ us as
mercenaries in their raids against the Chinese Qi to the south and
the Tibetans. A whole new opportunity is open for us to covet the
fertile land and thriving urban centers of China.
