    It’s currently nowhere near finished.

    The answer to your question, is (given that many RCW entities could totally be described as warlords) possibly.

    The Republic of China in 1913:

    1913, Unknown Date:
    Suiyuan was split from Inner Mongolia, Heilongjiang fell under a warlord regime, and northern Shaanxi fell outside government control. Beiyang invaded Jin and took control of most of the province.

    April:
    Sichuan and Henan fell under warlord regimes. Yuan Shikai, the leader of the Beiyang Clique and president of China, was accused of abusing his powers after assassinating several opposition leaders.

    May:
    Zhejiang fell under a warlord regime.

    July:
    On July 10 Sun Yixian declared the Second Revolution, this time against the authoritarian government controlled by the Beiyang Clique. His new political party, the Guomindang, formed the core of the revolt. By the end of the month six provinces in the South had joined him, including the powerful Gan Clique under Li Liejun. Additionally, several military commanders in Sichuan launched a revolutionary in Chengdu in support of Sun.

    August:
    However, Sun and his allies were unable to sway a critical mass of support. Their troops were unable to effectively defend against attacks by Beiyang and pro-Beiyang forces. Ultimately, the battlefield inferiority the revolutionaries had experienced in the First Revolution now became the decisive factor. Then, the main enemy had been the weak Qing government, but with the Second Revolution directed specifically against the Beiyang, Yuan turned his full strength against the revolutionaries. Li Liejun and Chen Jiongming, leaders of the Gan and Yue Cliques respectively, were defeated in early August, with Beiyang forces then moving to attack Hunan and Nanjing.

    September:
    Nanjing fell on September 1, with Sun's remaining allies capitulating later in September, with Sun Yixian fleeing abroad again. Although Zhe had not joined the Second Revolution, Yuan Shikai decided to depose its KMT-aligned governor anyways. Qian also became a separate clique from Dian.

    November:
    Sikang fell under a warlord regime.

    In the older maps I showed Xikang being part of Tibet, but some further research (read, closer examination of sources I already had) has revealed that they only controlled it from 1930 to 1932, although I believe that Manigangexiang was occupied by the Tibetan Army from 1917/1918 to 1931.

    Very interesting. I did find some information suggesting that Tibet maybe had some influence in southern Qinghai, but I didn’t find anything like that map. Do you have any more information about it?

    Also, thinking about it I’ll definitely put that border into the maps, although I’m not sure which one to use?

    If you check the thread it's from you will see my post where I note the book that I think it is from. I can't be sure as I remember seeing that map in a book once but I'm almost certain the book was newer than the late 1980s.

    Only other sources I can direct you to are:

    @Chris S I've gone through and modified the Tibet border in the previous two years. Is the new boundary okay?

    Tarbaghatay province was dissolved.

    January:
    Chengdu and Qian joined the National Protection Army.

    The National Protection Army began offensive operations against Imperial Forces. Although he had an enormous numerical superiority, Yuan Shikai found his troops highly unreliable and was unable to defeat the National Protection Army.

    March:
    Gui Clique declared independence. Yuan Shikai agreed to restore the Republic. However, by this point his position had so deteriorated that this was unacceptable and the war continued.

    Two additional provinces joined the National Protection Army. Zhang Zuolin used the chaos to effectively establish Fengtian province as an independent state, although he continued t support Yuan Shikai.

    June:
    By early June the northern government had effectively collapsed. Yuan Shikai died, and Li Yuanhong became president. The Beiyang Clique fractured into factions, the most influential being the Anhui Clique, which effectively controlled the government.

    July:
    Considered their objectives achieved, the southern warlords dissolved the Military Affairs Council, although most remained outside government control.

    September:
    A Beiyang faction led by Cao Kun established itself in Zhili Province, and was henceforth known as the Zhili Clique.
