Game Groups > Inspiration: Book - Shuihuzhuan / Water Margin

Games based on, or inspired by the Chinese novel Water Margin (simplified Chinese: 水浒传; traditional Chinese: 水滸傳, "Shuihuzhuan"), also known as Outlaws of the Marsh or The Marshes of Mount Liang.

One of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature (together with Three Kingdoms, Journey to the West, and Dream of the Red Chamber), it was written in the 14th century and is traditionally attributed to Shi Nai'an (施耐庵), though some scholars assume that at least a large part of it was written by Luo Guanzhong (罗贯中), the author of Three Kingdoms.

The novel describes historical events, mixed with popular legends, which involve the activities of 108 outlaws during the late Song Dynasty in China (12th century). Most of the book is dedicated to personal stories of the most prominent outlaws, and their struggle against the Song government.
