Game Groups > Setting: Chinese Qin Dynasty

Qin Dynasty (Chinese: 秦朝) was the first imperial dynasty to control China; its ruler called himself the First Emperor of Qin (Qin Shihuang). The dynasty reigned over China for only fourteen years, from 221 to 207 BC, but has left an indelible mark on Chinese history. Two of the country's most famous landmarks, the Great Chinese Wall and the Terracotta Army, were constructed during its rule. The name for "China" in most Western languages (including the English word "China") is derived from the Chinese name "Qin". However, the short-lived Qin period was also marked by a totalitarian regime and brutal persecutions, collectively named "book-burning and scholar-burying".
