    [​IMG] So what are the benefits of hunting?

    Oh, I dunno. Pork chop. Chicken chop. Just to name a few.

    [​IMG] There are lots! The animals' skin can be used for making clothes, their flesh for food, their organs for medicinal purposes. You could say every bit of their body is useful for us.

    Yes, even turtle sex organs are useful.

    [​IMG] Oh I see! So how do I start?
    [​IMG] The first thing is of course to have a good bow. A better bow means more efficient hunting. Then you will need arrows, which can be found in any grocery store.
    [​IMG] I think it was fate that led us to meet each other today. So, if you help me deliver this Bear's Paw to Du Juan, the wine seller, and say it's a gift from me, Lu Da, the hunter, who has always admired her, then I'll repay you nicely.
    [​IMG] Sure, no problem. I love playing matchmaker. Brb.

    Unfortunately...

    [​IMG]

    That lady has a point.

    [​IMG] Uh, is that so? (Looks like Lu Da's going to be disappointed.)
    [​IMG] And a pretty lady like myself has got to be matched up with a handsome man! To be honest, I think you, the great hero, Gu look dashing and you even defeated those bandits earlier, so let me be your bride, what do you think?
    [​IMG] Thank you for your kind comments and love, but I am not the best match for you. You should seek another man who truly loves you.
    [​IMG] Oh my, you're so dreamy even when you're rejecting me... I- I'm going to pass out!

    Feel free, so I can steal your stuff.

    [​IMG] (How can he be so calm? Anyway, we'd better leave now!)

    The woman did not faint. Women are all liars.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] (I really don't want to disappoint him by telling him the truth.)

    For once I agree with you, we're doing it purely for the reward. Who cares if he gets the pussy or not?

    [​IMG] Thank you! You can have this bow and these arrows. I believe you will be a great hunter.

    My hunting proficiency has increased by 5.
    And I received a wooden bow and arrows.
    Not sure where to start hunting though. Let's keep exploring.

    [​IMG] Hi, what are you doing?
    [​IMG] I'm gathering herbs, can't you see?
    [​IMG] So you're an herb gatherer. Judging from your accent, I guess you're not local?
    [​IMG] Nope, I'm not. I am from the Baicao Clan, located in Chengdu. I discovered some unique herb that could only be found here when I was passing by this village, so I stopped to collect some.
    [​IMG] Ah! Brothers from Baicao Clan. How is your leader Master Gong?
    [​IMG] And you are?
    [​IMG] I am Gu Yuexuan of Xiaoyao valley. I have met Master Gong several times.
    [​IMG] Oh! You are Gu, the Fist of Justice. I am honored.
    [​IMG] You are too kind, sir. Is Master Gong nearby as well?
    [​IMG] No, master didn't come. I'm just on my own.
    [​IMG] I see. Please give my regards to Master Gong, sir.
    [​IMG] You must be Gu's friend. A friend of Gu is also a friend of Baicao Clan. These hoes are for you. With these hoes, you can collect herbs. One hoe is consumed each time you finish collecting. Once you are out of hoes, purchase more from any grocery store.
    [​IMG] Thank you so much bro. I think I'd better follow your advice.

    Herb gathering proficiency has increased by 5.

    Dude, I don't wanna do that shit again unless I have to. That was utter shit. Is there even a fun mini-game out there? I'm starting to get annoyed.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Judging by the look of you, you are a scholar, right? Do you intend to go to the capital to sit for the imperial examination?
    [​IMG] My name is Cheng. I am 23 years old, and indeed I've been preparing for a while now to sit for the examination. I am skilled in playing musical instruments, chess, painting, and calligraphy, yet the examination only tests your skills in the form of the boring eight-part essay, which I am truly not interested in learning. I guess this is why I've failed three times in a row already.
    [​IMG] What is the eight-part essay by the way? Is it very difficult?
    [​IMG] Well, the eight-part essay is also known as the four-book essay, eight-contrast essay and so on and so forth. The imperial examination originated from the Tang Dynasty, which originally put to the test candidates in poetry. However, this test has taken the form of the eight-part essay in recent dynasty.
    [​IMG] There are strict rules about metre, steps, and word count in the Eight-party Essay. Writers are forbidden from writing freely outside of the boundaries of classic schools of literature. The title of the essay must be quoted from the Four Books and the Five Classics, and the content must be comply totally with the comment of Cheng-zhu School.
    [​IMG] Candidates for the exam must explain the thesis according to the comments in classic literature without a shred of his own opinion in it. There is no room for independent thinking in such exams. *Sigh* The Eight-part Essay focuses only on forms but not essence, snuffing out the creative spark of the candidates. Intellectual workers produced by this system are not intelligent at all, for the only thing they're good at is repeating everything written in books. What's the point of all this?
    [​IMG] I'm gonna take part in the imperial exam this year. If I fail again, then I'll have no choice but to take up my father's mantle and become the village head.
    [​IMG] (His father is the village head? No wonder he seems to have nothing to fear.)
    [​IMG] Cheng, you would do well to speak less criticism of current politics. If heard by the wrong people... Although I do agree with your point.

    Man, this could've been interesting if I could just choose what to say. I rather just diss this guy for relying on his family connections.

    [​IMG] You're right. Talking about it doesn't make me feel any better. By the way... are you interested in a little game of riddle?
    [​IMG] Why not? Let's hear it?
    [​IMG] I have three riddles here, each referring to one person in this village. If you can find all three of them, then my riddles are solved.
    [​IMG] Go ahead.
    [​IMG] OK, listen closely. First riddle: "People say I'm crazy, but it is they who are blind."

    Hmm... could it be the beggar monk?

    [​IMG] Second riddle: "Win and lose, black and white. The greatest enemy is one's own mind."

    The chess player kid?

    [​IMG] And the third: "A scholar of unprecedented knowledge, who excels in all forms of art."

    Gotta be him. Oh well, I'll check out the village more thoroughly before I give him an answer.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Is it because the water is naturally good?
    [​IMG] It's because of the rocks. Good water comes from good rocks. These rocks are full of minerals and after the water passes through them, it's filtered and thus has a pleasant taste. That's why the wine from Dukang village is so well-known around these parts.
    [​IMG] And since there is an abundance of ores available here, I can make a living out of mining in this village.
    [​IMG] So that's why! Apart from filtering the water, what else can these ores do?
    [​IMG] Plenty. Think of the cutting tools and iron wares that we use daily, they're all made from ores. You see this shovel here, it's made from high quality iron ores.
    [​IMG] Apart from these, traveling within Wulin would almost always require you to carry some form of weapons, which are also made from high-quality ores. If you're interested, why don't you do some mining with me?

    Mining proficiency increased by 5!
    Received shovel.

    Oh dear... here we go.

    I also went around town looking for the answers to the riddles. My guesses were right.

    [​IMG]


    You know what, it's probably the least offensive of all of the mini games so far. Like - honestly it was the one that made most sense?
    The mining is an insult, the hunting one is a lame turret game...while the herb is a game of match cards which I did not realize until I watched the video again on YouTube :lol:
    And the second riddle answer's confirmed.

    [​IMG]

    The last one is probably the dude himself. I'll talk to him later.
    I'm starting to run out of stuff to do in town...
    I recall having to find a Boar's meat but the hunt didn't seem to have any boar...I really hate doing that turret bullshit, so fuck that.

    [​IMG]

    And the noodle guy doesn't seem to accept just any 'carp' which frustrates me because there's silver, black and grass carps. I stopped after getting 5 grass carps just for that and he refused!
    And I can't find the Plums the chess kid wanted.
    Maybe I can spend 1000 Qian to cure my 'condition'
    Or sell more stuff to get 5000 Qian to save the poor dying guy.

    XVII - Tiger's Cave
    Show Spoiler

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] What's wrong with this monkey? It's as if it saw some terrible monsters.
    [​IMG] It came from that cave. These monkeys have been living here for many years, and are not even afraid of humans. Is there some kind of wild beast in the cave?
    [​IMG] Wild beast? Ah, Gu, that woodcutter did mention something about the roar of a tiger, right? Is there really a tiger in there?
    [​IMG] Interesting. Shi, wait here while I take a look inside.
    [​IMG] No way! Gu, are you going to fight a tiger with bare hands?
    [​IMG] Let me tell you a secret: My martial arts style is called Water Margin Heroes Zhang which consists of 108 forms. Each form is named after the deed of one hero in Water Margin.
    [​IMG] And you are saying...
    [​IMG] Heheh, you must've heard of the story Wu Song Fights the Tiger, right? My favorite move is "Tiger-beating Punch of Wu Song". But I haven't faced a real tiger yet. If there is a real tiger in the cave, maybe it is fate that gives me this chance to put my skills to test.
    [​IMG] Shi, you may stay here and wait for me. Don't worry, if things get out of hand, I'm sure I can at least escape in one piece.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] I-I'm not afraid! Wait for me! I'll fight the tiger with you!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] (Who is this drunkard? His hiccup sounds like thunder! Ah...!) Gu, the roar of tiger that woodcutter spoke of... was made by him?
    [​IMG] That's right. There is a special martial art in Jianghu that requires alcohol to practise. Masters of this art reek of alcohol all the time and release its earthshaking powers spontaneously, even in speaking and hiccups.
    [​IMG] As far as I know, only the Drunkard of the Four Villains, known as "the Robber of the North", managed to master this Drunken Art.
    [​IMG] Bingo! Ha-ha, you brat, hardly would I have thought you would know who I am.
    [​IMG] Look at these empty jars, seems you've been living here for a while.
    [​IMG] (My goodness! No wonder the smell of alcohol is strong, enough to get people drunk!)
    [​IMG] Dukang Village is famous for its beverages. I won't feel alright here without drinking three damn jars each day. Why should I leave this paradise?
    [​IMG] So, where did you get those drinks?
    [​IMG] I assume he didn't buy them since he is known as "Robber of the North".
    [​IMG] Ha-ha, my stomach was born to be an alcohol container, which is supposed to be filled with all kinds of the best liquors. And you want me to pay for this? You must be kidding!

    Sound logic there.

    [​IMG] Bullshit! You filthy robber and rascal! Those beverages are made by diligent villagers and you have no right to steal from them!

    Talk about overreaction. Aren't you supposed to be (Malevolent)?

    [​IMG] So what? Look at you, such a sissy! You wanna start a fight? Come on! Why don't you just go home and do your needlework, sissyboy! Ha ha ha ha!

    Rekt.

    [​IMG] Y-you! Damn it! Such a humiliation! Yuexuan, we have to teach him a lesson! However I'm afraid I won't be able to help much...
    [​IMG] I've heard that even being one of the Four Villains, you are a man of your word, aren't you?
    [​IMG] That's right! I always keep my word.
    [​IMG] So, how about we make a bet? Let's see who is the better martial artist. If you win, I'll go away immediately. If I win, you have to promise me that you'll leave this village and never steal their beverages again.
    [​IMG] Ha-ha, Gu Yuexuan of Xiaoyao Valley, you dare challenge me! Such an arrogant idiot as people say! Alright, I accept! As for the bet, it seems unfair to me. How about if you lose, you need to kowtow to me eight times, what do you say?
    [​IMG] Fair enough!
    [​IMG]

    This guy seems outclassed by Yuexuan.

    Haha - a fictional character referencing another fictional character is so weird.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wu_Song

    Wu Song is a fictional character in Water Margin, one of the Four Great Classical Novels in Chinese literature. Nicknamed "Pilgrim",[a] he ranks 14th among the 36 Heavenly Spirits, the first third of the 108 Stars of Destiny. In folklore, Wu Song is an apprentice of the martial artist Zhou Tong and he specialises in Chuojiao and the use of the staff and double broadswords.


    Background[edit]
    Wu Song is from Qinghe County (in present-day Xingtai, Hebei). The novel describes him as a good-looking man of an impressive bearing and with shining eyes, thick eyebrows and a muscular body. As his parents died early, he was raised by his dwarfish elder brother, Wu Dalang (武大郎; literally "Eldest Brother Wu").

    Wu Song once knocked out a man in a drunken rage. Thinking that he had killed that man, he goes on the run to avoid arrest and takes shelter in the residence of the nobleman Chai Jin. He meets Song Jiang there and they become sworn brothers. He decides to go home after learning there is no charge against him.


    On his way home, Wu Song passes by a tavern near Jingyang Ridge which puts out a large sign that reads "After Three Bowls, Do Not Cross the Ridge" (三碗不過崗). He stops there for a break. The tavern waiter explains the meaning of the sign to Wu Song; The wine sold at the tavern is so strong that customers usually get drunk after having three bowls and are unable to cross the ridge ahead. Still sober after drinking three bowls, Wu Song demands that the waiter continue serving him wine. By the end of his meal, Wu Song had consumed 18 bowls of wine but he still appears sober. He is about to leave when the waiter stops him and warns him about a fierce man-eating tiger on the ridge. Wu Song suspects that the waiter is lying to him so that he'll pay to spend the night at the tavern. He ignores the waiter and continues his journey.

    While crossing Jingyang Ridge, Wu Song sees an official notice which convinces him that there is a tiger on the ridge. However, he does not turn back for fear of losing face. As he moves on, the alcohol starts taking effect, so he decides to take a nap on a big rock. As he is falling asleep, the tiger leaps out from the woods and attacks him. After narrowly dodging the tiger three times, Wu Song attempts to fight back but breaks his staff on a tree. Left with no weapon to defend himself, Wu Song summons all his might and manages to pin down the tiger with his arms. He rains blows with his bare fist on the tiger's head and kills it, falling asleep soon after. Local hunters in the area find Wu Song with the dead tiger and are amazed by his feat. Wu Song becomes famous as a result. The magistrate of the nearby Yanggu County (in present-day Liaocheng, Shandong) offers him the job of chief constable in the county office. Wu Song accepts the job and settles down in Yanggu County, where he runs into Wu Dalang, who has recently moved there.

    According to some scripts used in Yangzhou storytelling, particularly the "Wang school", Wu Song's slaying of the tiger took place "in the middle of the tenth (lunar) month" of the "Xuanhe year [1119]". REALLY IMPORTANT TO KNOW OK! :lol:

    [​IMG] It's hard to imagine that the Nobody had such a high achievement at a young age. No wonder he was crowned as the no.1 martial artist of Wulin! I swear on my very name that I will also work hard and gain achievements that can match those of the Nobody!
    [​IMG] Sounds like you're a big fan of the Nobody, just like myself.
    [​IMG] I grew up listening to the stories of the heroic Nobody. But for some unknown reason, he disappeared and was never seen again. I bet he just retired after he found out that no one was able to match his skills.
    [​IMG] Then the people decided to build a statue to honor the memory of him, so the younger generations like us can have a chance to know about this great man of history.
    [​IMG]

    Uh, that's such a weird translation - surely you meant Seeker of Defeat?

    [​IMG] Sorry, I can never contain my excitement whenever I hear about the tales of Nobody. I made a wish that I would be able to witness the statue of Nobody and also get into a good sect so that I can train hard, improve my skills, travel across the lands and help those in need one day, just like the Nobody.

    :smug: Just like how we helped that abused wife.

    [​IMG] That is one admirable wish! My decision to make friends with you was right after all. Come, let's get some drinks and have a nice chat!
    [​IMG] Erm... actually I am a bit short of money at the moment. (*Sigh*, I spent all of my savings on this outfit, I can't help but value my face above all.)
    [​IMG] HAHAHA, no worries. I was the one who invited you so it's only reasonable that I'm the one buying. Let's go.

    Thanks bro. I'll pay you back one day.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] A lot actually. For example...
    [​IMG] Wait, let's take a sip first. Waiter! Drinks please!

    A waiter brings a jar of wine to the table.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG] Cheers!
    [​IMG] Huh? Hold on!
    [​IMG] What?
    [​IMG] Something's wrong with this wine!

    It was too late for Shi Di Fen...
    He screamed it pain and rolled on the floor.

    [​IMG]

    Suddenly...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] XUANMING ZI!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] You've gone too far! Why did you do this?!
    [​IMG] Too far? Do you even comprehend how much misery your master caused me? Compared to him, I am very kind, too kind, actually!
    [​IMG] Tell Wuxia Zi this: everything that he took away from me, I will take all of them back one day! HAHAHAHA!
    [​IMG]

    Fuck. Caught in a crossfire between rival sects.
    TO BE CONTINUED!

    Dugu Qiubai
    is a fictional character who is mentioned by name in three wuxia novels by Jin Yong (Louis Cha). He does not appear in any of the novels because he lived in an era long before the events of the novels took place. Nicknamed "Sword Devil" (劍魔) to reflect his prowess in and devotion to the practice of swordplay, he attains the philosophical level of "swordsmanship without a sword", which means that he uses swordplay techniques in combat without the physical existence of a sword.

    The Return of the Condor Heroes
    Dugu Qiubai's family name Dugu meant that he was a Xianbei. His given name "Qiubai" (求敗) literally means "seek defeat". His full name thus roughly translates to "Loner Who Seeks Defeat". It represents his status as an invincible swordsman who is haunted by solitude as no one can defeat or equal him in swordplay.

    In this novel, set in the late Song dynasty, Yang Guo inherits Dugu Qiubai's 'Heavy Sword Technique'. He encounters the Condor, a giant eagle-like creature that was once a companion of Dugu Qiubai. The Condor saves Yang Guo after he lost his arm, and leads him to Dugu Qiubai's Tomb of Swords. Yang Guo learns Dugu Qiubai's skills with the help of the Condor and inherits the Heavy Iron Sword.

    The Heavy Sword Technique has a rigorous requirement on inner energy. It emphasises simple swings and moves accompanied by potent inner energy exertion. Although it lacks the fancy and stylish movements of typical swordplay styles, it is more effective than the most complicated form of sword attacks. When Yang Guo was learning this technique, he commented that average swords would be broken immediately when he channels his inner energy into the sword during fights. The sword's weight would also boost the power of his swings and thrusts. Yang Guo mastered the inner energy technique used by Dugu Qiubai and fulfilled the requirement.

    [​IMG]

    The old man introduces himself as Gu's master.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Shi! You're awake!
    [​IMG] Gu!
    [​IMG] How do you feel now? Are you still hurt?
    [​IMG] Ugh... I still feel a little sick.
    [​IMG] His poison has mostly gone away. You just need to rest for one or two more days and you'll be fine.
    [​IMG] That's great! Shi, you stay and rest, I'll go prepare the medicine for you.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Shi! You can walk now?
    [​IMG] Yes! It's all thanks to you and Mr. Wuxia Zi, I have almost recovered now!
    [​IMG] Since you have recovered well, it is obvious that Xiaoyao Valley's responsibility is over, you can go home now, young man.
    [​IMG] Home.. I-I don't have one...
    [​IMG] !
    [​IMG] My parents passed away a long time ago, I have been homeless ever since.
    [​IMG] Shi, so your parents too...
    [​IMG] What do you mean?
    [​IMG] Gu's father was the well known Gu Yunfei, his mother was a well educated woman. They were praised as the perfect couple by the people back in the day.
    [​IMG] Yunfei was my old friend, he had little Yuexuan sent to Xiaoyao Valley to learn and train. Then that day arrived...
    [​IMG] Father was killed while he was hunting an evil man. Mother committed suicide after she found out. But I know he died for justice, so I was proud of my parents.

    That's so sad and unnecessary.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] That's... also thanks to Master.
    [​IMG] Mr. Wuxia Zi! Please take me on as a disciple as well, I beg you!
    [​IMG] Master, Shi is an honest and honorable man, his ambition matches the teachings of our ancestors. I'm sure he would make Xiaoyao Valley proud as a disciple of yours, so I too concur to his wish.

    Hehehe, thanks bro.

    [​IMG] Hm! It must be fate! Alright! I will take you on as my apprentice.
    [​IMG] Thank you, Mr. Wuxia Zi!
    [​IMG] Great! I'll prepare the ceremony now.

    And so the abysmal mini game tutorial ends and the real adventure begins.

    Sometime later...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Oh! Thanks, I will.
    [​IMG] I need to prepare for the dinner tonight. You may familiarize yourself around here for the time being. I need to carry this seafood to the kitchen first.
    [​IMG] How about I help you carry it?
    [​IMG] No need lah, Shi...
    [​IMG] No no no, we're family now and should help each other, right? Don't worry, I've got this...
    [​IMG] Can he really do it? I have weights in the box as part of my workout...
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] My arms are nearly broken...
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] !!!! (A b-blade!! On my neck!! Did I run into bandits?!)
    [​IMG] Hey, we can talk about this you know! I don't have any money on me.
    [​IMG] No money? You think I'll let you go just because of that?
    [​IMG] Then... then what do you want?
    [​IMG] Tell me! Who the heck are you? Who else is with you?
    [​IMG] I-I'm a disciple here... there's also my master and my disciple brother.
    [​IMG] You dare to lie to me?! Are you tired of living?
    [​IMG] Hey! Calm down! I'm telling the truth!
    [​IMG] Buddy! You came to the wrong place! My master is the renowned martial artist Wuxia Zi and my disciple brother, Gu Yuexuan annihilated the entire Thirteen Geese of Shanbei all by himself. You don't want to mess with them!
    [​IMG] ! !
    [​IMG] Ji! What are you doing?!
    [​IMG]

    POW!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Disciple brother?!
    [​IMG] Master, you're saying this... this bandit here is my disciple brother!?

    POW!

    [​IMG] Ouch!
    [​IMG] Who are you calling a bandit now?!

    POW!

    [​IMG] Ouch!!
    [​IMG] You imbecile! How can he not?! You put a blade to his neck! You're always like this! Swinging your blades around without fully understanding the situation!
    [​IMG] Tsch! Look at him! He's got the look of a thief. It's not my fault!
    [​IMG] Who are you calling a thief now!
    [​IMG] Alright, Alright! It's just a misunderstanding lah. Let me do the introductions. Di Fen, this is your disciple brother, Jing Ji. Ji, this is your new disciple brother, Shi Di Fen.
    [​IMG] Nice to meet you, Ji. (This guy seems to have a bad temper. I hope he won't cause trouble for me in the future!)
    [​IMG] Hmph.

    POW!

    [​IMG] Say something lah! He just spoke to you!
    [​IMG] Tsch! Yeah! Good to see you!
    [​IMG] When will you learn some manners?
    [​IMG] Whatever.

    POW!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Hmph! I think Hu's finished preparing dinner's already. Let's go.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] It's not new year's eve tonight, right?
    [​IMG] It's a welcoming feast for Di Fen and to celebrate Gu's achievement in getting rid of the "Thirteen Geese of Shanbei."
    [​IMG] Thank you, Master. I was only doing what should be done. But today's main event is still welcoming Di Fen to the family in Xiaoyao Valley... From this day on, we will all share our happiness and bear all difficulties together.
    [​IMG] Master! Yuexuan! I feel so warm and touched! No one has ever treated me so well.
    [​IMG] Yuexuan, you've proven capable of handling matters all by yourself. I'm so proud of you. From now on, I can leave more matters in your care without having a second thought.
    [​IMG] Ji, Di Fen, you should learn from your own disciple brother and don't let me down.
    [​IMG] Yes, Master!
    [​IMG] Alright, less talking, more eating now!
    [​IMG] .... (If this task had been given to me, I would have finished it too, maybe even better than him.) Tsch!

    XXII - The Training Begins
    Show Spoiler

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] The basics include Internal Style, Toughness, Flexibility, Qinggong, Sight and Hearing. Focusing on certain basics will lead you to be more proficient in certain skill areas.
    [​IMG] Let us start with the Internal Style, it is the most important of the basics.

    The Internal Style is basically a way to boost one's Health and Energy. This is important because combat survival ties with one's health and moves consumes energy. The lower one's energy, the weaker the moves will be.

    [​IMG] This is Xiaoyao Internal Style, the foundation of Xiaoyao Valley Martial Arts. Make sure you practice it well. I will teach you the martial moves later, but before that you must build a good foundation.
    [​IMG] Thank you, Master. I will do my best.
    [​IMG] Yeah, but we're not finished yet. First, you must learn the Acupuncture points of the human body.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Take this diagram and learn it by heart.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Alright. Let's call it a day. Remember, practice makes perfect.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Wow... I never thought you would make such a rapid progress. One is not supposed to feel it unless his inner force foundation is solid enough. It seems the inner force is strong with you!

    High midichlorians count detected?

    [​IMG] Really? (Does that mean I am the Chosen One?) Master! Can I make a breakthrough?
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] What? That's so long!
    [​IMG] Hahaha, I'm not finished yet! It takes decades if no one helps you. But with my help, it will go much quicker.
    [​IMG] I really appreciate that Master!
    [​IMG] Concentrate your inner force on Baihui which belongs to the Conception Vessel. I will focus my inner force there as well so they can interact on that point.

    There's only one problem...
    I don't know what is a 'Baihui'

    [​IMG]

    Is it the one closest to the groin?

    [​IMG] FOOL! It's on top of the head!
    [​IMG] I'm sorry, Master! I can't read Chinese!
    [​IMG] Alright! Once more! No more mistakes this time!

    Time passes...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Let's hope I can learn the martial arts style soon!

    [​IMG] Here, tie these sandbags to your legs.
    [​IMG] So heavy!
    [​IMG] Always carry them wherever you go. We will also gradually increase the weight. One day when you are released from them, you'll find yourself as light as a flying bird.
    [​IMG] But Master, these are way too heavy!
    [​IMG] *Sigh* I can't help in that regard. However... Ji! Come here!
    [​IMG] Bah! What's the matter, old man?

    POW!

    [​IMG] Show some respect!
    [​IMG] Ouch! We don't have to get physical!
    [​IMG] I shall give you a new assignment. Help your disciple brother with his training.
    [​IMG] (I have a bad feeling about this!)
    [​IMG] No. No! That won't be necessary. Master, I can do it by myself...
    [​IMG] Di Fen! Start running! NOW!
    [​IMG] Run?
    [​IMG] Ji, chase after Di Fen. Punch him when you catch up. Remember to be gentle.
    [​IMG] WHAT?!
    [​IMG] Hehe... it is my rightful duty to help a fellow disciple brother.
    [​IMG] Gu! Help me! Gu!
    [​IMG] You can shout all day but no one's coming. Gu's gone to town...

    POW!

    [​IMG] WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE?! Start running!
    [​IMG] Aaaah!

    Two sessions spent on Qinggong. And then it's time to rest and prepare for the next day.

    XXIV - The Essence of Styles
    Show Spoiler

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Xiaoyao Valley initially was a branch of Xiaoyao Sect. Over a hundred years ago, Xiaoyao Sect was at its peak. Although there were not many disciples, every one of them had enormous powers.
    [​IMG] It had three legendary Arts. The Art of the Northern Dark Sea, which drains energy from foes; Art of the Formless, which allows you to imitate any martial technique and the Art of Everlasting Youth, which grants you the ability to reverse aging. Learning any of the three is more than sufficient to come out on top of the world.
    [​IMG] In addition, there are many other techniques such as Ripple Steps, derived from sixty-four hexagrams in the Book of Changes; Plum Blossom Picking Hand techniques, which can counter all kinds of weapon attacks; Six Yang Zhang, which condenses the slice of life; and air bending White Rainbow Zhang...
    [​IMG] I was not bragging when I said Xiaoyao Sect is the No.1 Sect in Wulin.
    [​IMG] Wow! Master, please teach me those techniques. I can't wait to be a Wulin Master!
    [​IMG] Well, too bad. All of these legendary techniques are lost and even I don't know any of them. *Sigh*
    [​IMG] WHAT! (Such a waste of my expectations~~)
    [​IMG] Eyyy! Don't be so disappointed. We still have other techniques to teach you. Look at Yuexuan, who doesn't know the name Fist of Justice now in Wulin?
    [​IMG] Yes master, I'll do my best.
    [​IMG] Very good. The essence of martial arts in our sect is Xiaoyao. If thou obey the nature's character, comply with all the changes of nature, roam freely in the endless space, then thou shall expect no more. Unbound by ordinary rule, going at your own sweet will is the best way to exert the true power of the Xiaoyao techniques.

    I don't get it. But OK.

    [​IMG] Right now you do not know any techniques. But look on the bright side, you are not constrained by any. Our sect's techniques are well tailored for you.
    [​IMG] Now I'm going to teach you three techniques...
    [​IMG]

    This must be what Yuexuan practices.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Thank you for your teachings, Master!
    [​IMG]

    And so the lesson ends and it's up to me to continue to practice the basics (Internal & Qinggong) or focus on one of the three Techniques (Fist, Longsword, & Broadsword)

    [​IMG]

    What do you guys think I should focus on? Basics or a specific Weapon Style?

    XXV - Single Minded Training
    Show Spoiler

    Master Wu unlocks two more training options for Shi Di Fen.

    [​IMG]

    The first is Toughness, a Basic training focused on damage reduction.
    The second is Flexibility, a Basic training focused on counterattacks.

    [​IMG]

    While I think those two can be useful - but I should focus more on a single training first. Build a foundation and develop the others once the need arises.

    [​IMG]

    The Internal Styles boosts Maximum HP and Energy greatly. I think that's something no warrior can ignore unless he can somehow evade all attacks.

    At last the time comes to test the result of my training.

    I think I'm on the right track. With the Xiaoyao Internal Style, I can regenerate a good chunk of lost health per turn. Once I've beefed up some more, perhaps I can focus on the sword style.

    XXVI - Everyone is a badass, except you
    Show Spoiler

    Hi guys, it's gonna be the typical training updates from now on, I'm afraid the game is designed like that post tutorial.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    These chores takes up less stamina but is kinda unneeded at the moment. So we'll skip that. It also boosts affection with certain NPCs. Although none of them are girls, or potential waifu, so I don't see the point. I'm not gay lah.
    Meanwhile Master continues to introduce new basic training. This time the Sight.

    [​IMG]

    Sight improves hit chance and critical rate.

    [​IMG] Follow me. Do you see this tree here?
    [​IMG] Am I gonna count how many leaves are on this tree?
    [​IMG] Hahaha. No. Why would I be that unreasonable? Watch! HAH!

    POW! Master hits the tree with his palm.

    [​IMG] Wow! Master, you are so strong! Looks like you were just patting the tree, but the leaves are falling down like rain!
    [​IMG] Heheheh, that was only 20% of my strength. Hey~
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] ? No... not really.
    [​IMG] Did you zone out when I'm teaching?!
    [​IMG] I wasn't! I just don't understand what you meant! You were too fast!
    [​IMG] Haha, that's true. Alright. Try to figure out where the leaves are falling and catch as many as you can. If you cannot catch more than 30 leaves with each hand, you're going to have to skip dinner tonight.
    [​IMG] Whaaaat?!
    [​IMG] After you feel comfortable catching the leaves, we will go and catch birds and even the dangerous wasps.
    [​IMG] (Resistance is futile.)

    Sight seems useful, but not that useful yet. I think I need more HP before anything. And Defense.

    [​IMG]

    Later that month, Master taught me a new basic training. This time it's hearing.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Di Fen, what is the best way to train your hearing?
    [​IMG] I don't know...please teach me, Master.
    [​IMG] The blind usually have much better hearing than normal people. That's because they've lost their sight and were forced to sense most things through hearing.
    [​IMG] Please don't blind me!
    [​IMG] Hehe, of course I won't do something so extreme. Just practice using your ears often. You've already learned Xiaoyao Internal style and this allows you to practice the Basics with ease and efficiency. I knew you'd make it through the extraordinary training.
    [​IMG] I believe in you.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Okay, let's get started. Close your eyes.
    [​IMG] Okay...

    POW!

    [​IMG] Ow! Master, what did you throw at me?!
    [​IMG] Just little stones on the road. With a little inner force, heheh. Concentrate! Focus! Otherwise, it's very easy to get hurt... and keep your eyes closed!
    [​IMG] OUCH!
    [​IMG] Prick up your ears! Figure out where the sounds are coming from! One more time!

    Later...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] What's happening? Someone shouting for help outside the valley?
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Stop right here!
    [​IMG] Get out of my way! This man must die!
    [​IMG] Are you insane? You are trying to commit a crime right on our turf!
    [​IMG] Are you going to get out of my way or not?
    [​IMG] Nope! I won't move a step!
    [​IMG] Is that so? Then I'll kill you all!
    [​IMG] What are you doing?!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] What did you say?!

    Just when I was about to drop...

    [​IMG] Let me help you.

    [​IMG] What's going on here?
    [​IMG] Gu, this girl wants to murder someone right in front of our doorstep.
    [​IMG] Is that so? Lady, my name is Gu Yuexuan, may I know what's actually happening here?
    [​IMG] This scoundrel...
    [​IMG] Help! Heroes, this girl is desperately in love with me, but I'm already married and I love my wife very much. Knowing that she can't win my heart, she decided to kill me! She already killed several of my guards, please help me!
    [​IMG] What did you fucking say? Die where you stand, jerk!
    [​IMG] Stop. Let's talk about this.
    [​IMG] Grrrr. Xiaoyao Valley wants to protect this guy? Without even knowing who he is?
    [​IMG] True, we do not know him. But we do know if we don't protect him, you'll kill him.
    [​IMG] Heroes... it's alright. I don't want to burden you any further. Just let her kill me... Fu, Chen... you were dead because of me. I'm so sorry. I wasn't strong enough to protect you. But at least we can reunite in hell.

    OK.

    [​IMG] Qin, do it now. Kill me, and be rid of your hatred. No matter what, I can't be with you. I'm sorry.
    [​IMG] Don't you worry. We Xiaoyao Valley will protect you at all cost.

    :lol: This goy.

    [​IMG] Damn you all! Gu, and all of you morons! You reap what you sow, you'll see!

    The angry woman left.

    [​IMG] Has she lost her mind?
    [​IMG] Thank you for your aid, heroes...
    [​IMG] Mister, let's get back inside the valley first...

    [​IMG] She admired my literary talent and fell in love with me disregarding the fact that I'm married. I rejected her repeatedly. But she never gave up and even spread news to everyone that I slept with her!
    [​IMG] As you can see, I'm only an ordinary man, how can I defend myself against someone like her?! As you can see, she finally lost her patience and decided to kill me. She killed my guards and hunted me all the way here. If it hadn't been for your help...
    [​IMG] This is outrageous! That hag is insane!
    [​IMG] Yuck! You were bullied by a woman and still call yourself a man? What a shameful display! I'd kill myself if I were you.

    POW!

    [​IMG] Fuck!
    [​IMG] Shut up! Think before you talk!
    [​IMG] Ahem. Mister, this is Xiaoyao Valley. I don't think she'd dare to break in here. So rest assured that you are safe here.
    [​IMG] Thank you but I've contacted my guards to meet me at a village nearby. I've brought too much trouble to you all, so I shouldn't stay here for a moment longer.
    [​IMG] If that is your wish. I'll let my apprentice, Shi Di Fen escort you to the village. Di Fen!
    [​IMG] Aye, Master! Leave it to me!
    [​IMG] Thank you so much. I don't know how to repay you. Please, lead the way.

    The two left immediately.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Mr. Shi, here's 20,000 Qian. Please take it as a token of my gratitude.
    [​IMG]

    Of course lah! We saved his ass!

    [​IMG] Thank you, Mr. Huang. It'd be rude to reject your kind offer.
    [​IMG] I'll take my leave then.
    [​IMG]

    What now?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Is... something the matter?
    [​IMG] Hmph! Even the Xiaoyao Valley has fallen so far!
    [​IMG] I worshipped Wuxia Zi like a god! How foolish of me! I never thought Xiaoyao Valley would help scum like Huang!
    [​IMG] (I helped the wrong guy?)
    [​IMG] My family provides Xiaoyao Valley with food every month. What a waste!
    [​IMG] (How is this possible? What have I done wrong?) I don't understand!
    [​IMG] Still feigning ignorance, are you? He must've taken Huang's money. Men from Xiaoyao Valley can sell their conscience for a price, it seems!
    [​IMG] Enough! We can do nothing about it if they resort to violene. It's all our fault to have mistaken them for decent people!
    [​IMG] What's going on?
    [​IMG] You really don't know anything do you?
    [​IMG] I don't.
    [​IMG] What the heck! You didn't know anything and you want to be the good guy! You clueless brat!

    Fuck you. Someone was about to get killed. And we stepped in to help. Is that wrong?

    [​IMG] That's enough. Allow me to explain.

    The Village elder stepped in and explained how Huang Lo's father, a rich and generous man died of a mysterious illness a few years back. Huang Lo, being the only son inherited all of his wealth. That was when the trouble started. Huang Lo associated himself with the Black Wind bandits to terrorize the area.

    Last month, he set his sights on the daughter of Li the farmer. He then came and harassed them frequently, and he even tripled their rent. He said if they could not afford to pay, he'd take Li's daughter as payment. Farmer Li had no choice and acceded to the demand.

    But Li's daughter escaped on the wedding day and killed herself to save her dignity. Furious, Huang Luo then went to find Farmer Li. When he heard of the death of his daughter, he passed out. Then Huang Luo burned his farm and house down. Mr. Li woke up and saw everything was gone. He vomited blood and passed out again, never to wake up.

    [​IMG] Everyone were furious and wanted to take action. One day, Guardian Qin of the Thunder Hall passed by. Upon hearing the story, she wasted no time and promised to kill Huang Luo for us! So the villagers were waiting for the good news.
    [​IMG] (To think I trusted him like a fool...)

    You weren't pretending?!

    [​IMG] You stuck your nose into something you don't even understand! Xiaoyao Valley is just a house to a bunch of idiots!
    [​IMG] What's the point of talking so much? We all knew he must have gotten paid by Huang Luo.

    And you're not getting a single qian of it.

    [​IMG] And he's still feigning ignorance, so shameless!

    Fuck you, take this to court if you wish.

    [​IMG] We don't welcome you, why are you still standing here, get lost!
    [​IMG] Your martial arts prowess is a waste if your course is wrong! How dare you call yourself a hero?
    [​IMG]

    Ignore them, we did nothing wrong.

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, let's go home and resume the headbanging training.
    The village elder sighed and walks back into the village.

    [​IMG] Wait.
    [​IMG]

    Oh fuck you. You retard.
