Prelude to the Battle of Cliffs

As promised yesterday, c143 is complete, meaning that v25 is also complete! If this is your first introduction to Romance of the Three Kingdoms, it's not hard to see why the Battle of Red Cliffs and the events leading up to it are one of the best remembered parts of this long epic. Deceit upon deceit upon deceit (though still to a very reasonable and believable extent). Poor Cao Cao, it's hard to have much of a chance when you've got Zhou Yu, Zhuge Liang, and Pang Tong all working against you. The only thing that Yokoyama (or maybe it's Eiji Yoshikawa) deliberately chose to omit in this volume is Cao Cao killing Liu Fu, imperial protector of Yangzhou, out of a drunken rage. Like a few other scenes in previous volumes, it was most likely removed to portray Cao Cao in a better light.
Also, I caught a mistake on p104 of the previous volume 24. I accidentally typed 500,000 and 300,000 instead of 50,000 and 30,000. My bad, the link for the fixed v24 is posted below.
