Here is how Juan-Juan looks like:
Now the actual AAR will start. Hope you'll enjoy it.
Run Run it's the Juan-Juan!
I. Shou-Lo-Pu Chen
I, the great Shou-Lo-Pu Chen, rule the mighty Juan-Juan. It is I that lead them into battle. Now hear of my deeds, and be amazed. It was in the year of 477 that a boundary dispute with Koguryo occured, that forced me to teach them a lesson. My Warriors assembled and in late 478 we went into Koguryo. After fierce fighting the Koguryo army was beaten. We sieged their cities and in the year of 480 they could fight no longer and became my vassals and paid tribute.
The following proved an exceptional year, and it was in that years that the Hephtalites attempted to gather a great alliance including them, us and Khwarazm and Kucha. Though the alliance fell apart the next year as Persia invaded the Hephtalite lands, and noone of us were interested in aiding them.
In 484 the Qara Khodjo made the same mistake as Koguryo and I soon sent my armies against them. The Hephtalites decided to aid the Qara Khodjo, but that would not stop us.
I am Fu-Ming-Tun. As Shou-Lo-Pu Chen fell against the Qara Khodjo, I took control of Juan-Juan. I quickly crushed the army of the Qara Khodjo, and as I began besieging their cites, the Hephtalites were defeated and forced to pay a small tribute. Late in the year of 486 Qara Khodjo was made our vassals and they pad a Tribute.
After gathering the full strength of the Juan-Juan I attacked Wei. Although they fought fiercely, I managed to capture the great city of Chang'an, but shortly afterwards the wicked Hephtalites attacked. Because of the Hephtalites I became forced to sign peace with the Wei, handing over the province of Jehol. But as that was made I as quickly as possible gathered my forces to strike against the cowardly Hephtalites.
III. Nakai Birdagechi
I came to power in the year of 492. The pathetic Fu-Ming-Tun, that had failed miserably against Wei and only defeat Qara Khodjo because of the actions taken by Shou-Lu-Po Chen, had been removed and I was the one to turn the tide against the Hephtalites. Although I managed to keep them at bay, it was not until 494, when Persia declared war against them that the tide really turned. As the Hephtalites were forced to fight on two fronts, I drove them away, and after years of fighting I, in the year of 499, forced them to abandon the provinces of Aralsk, Turgai, Karaganda, Karsak and Nura.
