All Hail Emperor Chang
In spite of his name, one-eyed Deng has both of his eyes. Instead his nickname comes from his gruesome habit of carrying around extra eyes. He gives them out as a sign of favour, and takes them back as a sign of disfavour. Those who don’t have any extra lose one of their own instead.
Ironically being a peasant in his lands is actually fairly pleasant. While he won’t hesitate to punish anyone who displeases him, most peasants have few opportunities to interact with him directly. And his soldiers are too scared of their boss to risk his displeasure by punishing a peasant for any minor problems.
Deng has been taken down, cast off from the Wang land and blinded.
