Initial Dilemma

The Yuan Clan's dilemma focuses around the conflict between Han Fu and Gongsun Zan. You were able to convince Gongsun Zan about attacking Han Fu, so he is now asking you to aid him in this attack, but at the same time Han Fu is seeking refuge in your realm – and is willing to pass his lands on to you in return.

  1. Do you stand by your promise to Gongsun Zan and declare war on Han Fu?
  2. Or do you use this opportunity to increase the size of your realm by taking Han Fu into your fold, confederating his faction in yours and angering Gongsun Zan?
