Three Kingdoms RPG is a historical drama series from Hong Kong's TVB that premiered in 2012. The show stars some of the biggest names in acting: Kenneth Ma and Raymond Lam as the leading roles. It is set in the tumultuous Three Kingdoms period of ancient China and follows the story of a group of military strategists who are transported back in time to the era.

The show opens with the introduction of the main characters - Chan Ho-Nam, (played by Kenneth Ma) and Ng Sam-Kwai (played by Raymond Lam) - two self-proclaimed underdogs who work at a technology company. They come across a prototype time machine created by their company and decide to take it for a spin. The machine malfunctions, sending them back in time to the Three Kingdoms era.

Once they arrive, they realize they have taken the place of two of the period's most famous strategists - General Chu-ko Liang and General Sun Tzu. As Liang and Tzu, they must help the war-torn Three Kingdoms of Shu, Wei, and Wu navigate the political and military landscapes of the era.

One of the central themes of Three Kingdoms RPG is the moral conflict that both Ho-Nam and Sam-Kwai face. As they find themselves in positions of power, they are forced to make choices that directly impact the lives and livelihood of others. Their modern sensibilities clash with the brutal realities of the Three Kingdoms period, and they must navigate the treacherous political landscape to maintain their new identities and ultimately return home.

Another major aspect of the show is its portrayal of the major historical figures of the Three Kingdoms period, such as Liu Bei, Cao Cao, and Sun Quan. The show provides insights into their strategies and personalities while putting its own spin on the historical figures. Three Kingdoms RPG incorporates plenty of action and battle scenes, but it also delves deeper into the relationships between characters, offering a more nuanced take on the period.

One of the most impressive aspects of Three Kingdoms RPG is its production value, which is typical of TVB dramas. The show boasts impressive visuals, elaborate costumes, and intricate set designs that take viewers back in time. The attention to detail is remarkable, and it creates an immersive experience that transports viewers straight into the Three Kingdoms era.

The acting, too, is top-notch. Ma and Lam deliver compelling performances as they navigate the complex terrain of their characters' emotions and relationships. They're joined by a strong ensemble cast that includes several notable veteran actors.

Overall, Three Kingdoms RPG is a well-made, engaging historical drama that fans of the genre and period are sure to enjoy. The show offers a unique spin on the period, blending modern-day sensibilities with historical events and figures to create a captivating narrative. The strong performances, intricate set designs, and impressive production values all come together to make it an unforgettable viewing experience.
