The Ancient Chinese Empire was one of the largest and most culturally rich realms on Earth. They were highly advanced in medicine, martial arts, science, and more. Their tales often consisted of people who possessed superior martial arts, almost at the league of Godhood. In fact, these so-called martial artists and generals were ancient Chinese mages, who transcended spirit, body, mind, and magic, into the Heavenly Arts. The Magical source of the Chinese is not referred to as mana, but chi or qi, which is the art of breathing in the life-force and transcend it within your body. Even before 1995, many Chinese achieved great miracles with their martial training and development of chi.
When the introduction of AMPs changed the life of humans and prosperity, China had another problem in terms of population control. In a way, the catastrophe was a great boon for China. Despite the destruction and death of millions, the Chinese people saw this as a revelation from the Gods. The ideals of Heaven’s Mandate, an ancient Chinese decree which said: All that was once China, shall become China. With their large military forces and military alliance with the Russians, the Chinese invaded surrounding former Chinese states and recreated the landmass of Ancient China.
Obviously, not all were treated with equality. The annexed states were generally viewed as lower-class citizens, and the Chinese mainland only became richer and lived in prosperity.
