Tang Dynasty Tour 唐砖 has released a beautiful new teaser that doesn’t tell me anything about the story itself. Based off Jieyu2’s novel of the same name, the web drama stars Wang Tianchen (Youth) as Yun Ye, an archaeologist who time travels back to the Tang Dynasty during a sandstorm.
It’s here! It’s finally here! Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy, also known as the drama with the best trailers ever, is going to premiere tonight at 8pm (CN time) on streaming sites Tencent, iQiyi and Youku.
The entire story is set in Novoland, a fantasy world comprising of mortals (who either live in the prosperous Eastern Land or the nomadic Eight Tribes), dwarves (河洛), the winged people (羽), spirits (魅), titans (夸父) and merfolk (鲛).
The 80 episode drama will revolve around the friendship between a half-spirit half-human prince with a cursed fate (Huang Xuan), a general’s son (Shawn Dou) who is fated to become emperor and the heir of a nomadic tribe (Zhou Yiwei) who wants to rise up against the ruling dynasty.

I’ve been trying to keep my expectations low for Tribes and Empires, but the release of another fantastic trailer isn’t helping.
Huang Xuan (Extraordinary Mission) stars the half-human half-spirit prince Muyun Sheng, Shawn Dou (The Last Race) is the abandoned son of a loyal general and Zhou Yiwei (The Insanity) plays the heir of one of the nomadic tribes. Their love interests are played by Janice Man, Xu Lu and Zhang Jianing respectively.
