Voices of the Pinfei - Singleplayer Campaign
Emperor Yongle of the Ming dynasty is remembered for his construction of the Forbidden City in Beijing. However, there is a dark stain on this event that is known by few today. This story is best told by those it affected. They are the "Pinfei", the imperial concubines. The storyline of this campaign is comprised of personal diary entries of the pinfei, each with its own voice. Be forewarned that as these voices spin the tale, a horrible and tragic climax will be revealed.

I had a lot of fun playing this campaign, and I know I will play it again in the future!
I expected the requests for the produced goods to be a bit more difficult to fill, but pretty much that was the only problem, and really, it isn't technically even a problem...
I loved this campaign, I loved the maps and the story and everything about it.
Map Design: 4
Very nice, realistic maps.
I adored the story, the build up, the focus on the female voices. Perfect.
Most of the campaigns on here are hard/very hard, and I perfectly understand that most veteran players want the challenge, but tbh, even though I've been playing this game on-and-off for almost ten years, I'm still very much a casual player (frankly, I play this game specifically to relax) so I was extremely happy to see a well put together, thought-out, beautiful campaign with a difficulty that invited me to play. Thank you so much.
