    And how miserably did he fail then?

    Either option will be entertaining... that sounded like celestial.
    Jing will be a sword to penetrate heaven, unfortunately brother metal crafter from Shaolin still didn't make that giant drill mecha yet. Shame. Its not like im planing to try change Jing into demon powered Rabbit making him impervious to everything except certain grenade.

    Because Baltika9 came up with that prediction:
    And since there are only Jing and Shun around, most voters try to shield their minds from the scene by whatever fantasy they can imagine.

    There are also some imperial guards around. We could kiss one of them.

    Have you not noticed? Wild assumptions are in this season. We're positively wading in them. +M

    People shat bricks and ganged up on him for a fighting chance. Ask treave if you want details; this story isn't quite the original myth.

    That's right. Epically. He failed Epically.
    His forces scattered.
    His woman, dead.
    Himself, dead.
    He was the biggest bogeyman of that period, absolutely no doubt about it, but he still failed. That's when he had actual magic. How are we going to learn magic?

    Well, whatever emperor comes next will have to rebuild the country from scratch. I figure a hundred or so wagons of celestial bricks might help him with the task.

    So you mean Heaven won't even care to send an army this time and will just stone us to death?

    Hm, yeah, getting transmogrified into a pile of bricks isn't too outlandish for Chinese deity capabilities either.

    Jing: Admit it, the thought of fighting me makes you shit bricks!
    Nuwa: No Jing, YOU ARE THE BRICKS

    And then Jing was a wall.

    Er, treave, any chance we could get more time on this vote?

    It still exists in the world. Just gotta look for it. That Taoist exorcist knew magic, for one.

    Nah, I already decided before the update roughly how long this was going to be open for. We'll get the ending that we get when the votes close.

    Can this be the canon ending if we declare a war on Heaven? Please?
    Can we not? I want to see what happens already.

    B--but Guo Fu is already a wall! Can't we become something more original?

    Also, how can we become a part of the Great Wall of China and protect the country from Mongols if we are Mongols? Or is that the Plan? To sabotage the defenders and let our people in at the crucial moment?

    Intriguing! :M

    Edit: nevermind, Bro Fu is the Southern Mountain, not the Wall. The other point still stands, though.

    Right, they do have personalities and emotions. Those of idiot children with unlimited power.

    I mean, stalking us for an eternity over some thousand year old grudge? Seething with hatred because of a joke we played on the previous Emperor? Destroying Empires and treating them as their playthings only to show that everything the Man builds is only temporary?

    The last one is not something Nuwa thought up, by the way.

    I don't think you will like their 'laws' very much.

    Did I vote already? If not, B>C.

    I remain partial to angry horse archers bursting into the Empire to take Shun's stuff accompanied by crazed assassins and fire witches just as soon as he's made aware of the magnitude of his terrible deed, but curiosit about what will happen if we pray is next up in my list.

    Can we have one argument where you don't go all rainman over every sentence just because I didn't say something just the right way? If you are actually suggesting that these gods are the same as the spheres, you need to get real. That's like saying Jing is the same as Dio because he has killed people too. Or that the masters were the same as the spheres because they are both immortal adversaries of the PC with godlike powers. Unless our conversation with Nuwah ends up being "want to play?" followed by 3000 years of torture, they are different.

    Not that any of this is productive to our current discuss. Semi-autistic levels of banal, anal niggling over semantics such as these will get us nowhere. Let's move on shall we? +M

    It took thousands of years, countless layers of plots and the deaths of millions to prove the point, but finally, a reincarnation of Chi You's will admit - AS HE SHOULD HAVE AGES AGO! - that he can't solve a desperate situation with mortal means after all and actively turn to the gods for help. Aw yeah!

    Nuwa: JUST AS PLANNED.

    C wins.

    All I am saying, those powers are alien to us. The gods less so, the spheres more so, but it does not matter in the end.

    Looks like we don't have a chocie.

    We so gonna die, man...

    this is why we should convert China to Zoroastrism. Ahura Mazdra would't do this to us. Mazdraism has all the answers.

    The same we way we learn all the haxxor stuff, my bro.
