This series is set in China in the year AD 169, during the end of the 400 year reign of the Han Dynasty. It is based on a great Historical epic, when many natural disasters fell upon China and its people. Struck by famine, disease, and the alarming upset among the people, this was a time of widespread suffering.
With no assistance or leadership from the declining Chinese Government, the “Yellow Flag Army” (Wang Chin Tang) was formed, consisting of 500,000 rebel farmers and peasants. This army was led by the spiritual leader Chang Chao, with the primary purpose of overthrowing the Han Dynasty.
As the war progressed, the army became hordes of ferocious bandits, looting and destroying cities and towns throughout the land.
The Government took it upon itself to recruit volunteers to suppress the Yellow Flag Army. Three great warriors took charge and became Heroes of the People. These men were Liu Bei, Chang Fee and Kwan Yeu, taking The Oath of Brotherhood and Commitment to achieve peace and restore tranquility to China and its people.
