BackgroundAge of Wushu is based on early Ming Dynasty China, a time when the central plains were relatively stable. It was during this period the Jianghu martial arts were allowed to flourish, and the great schools were formed and began recruiting members. This precipitated great change across the land.
Compared with the thriving, bustling nature of Jianghu, the central government grew increasingly autocratic, with the emperor’s power increasingly consolidated. The Eastern Chamber and the Royal Guards were formed, each growing into formidable forces that influenced Jianghu.

He began dispatching the newly powerful Royal Guard throughout Jianghu to bend the people to his will.

That set off violent tremors as factions of every stripe struggled to obtain this coveted work. The traditional martial arts began to evolve and grow more sophisticated, as did the newer fighting styles of the western regions, and so the story of Age of Wushu began…
