    Well, on one side, we have Xu Jing. An excellent martial artist, a real contender for the best right now. Possibly containing a tiny fragment of power from a former deity that eventually got his ass kicked by his peers, which has not been awakened in any real way.

    On the other side, we have a goddess that has just casually cast Time Stop.

    I'm not entirely sure what Jing has in his arsenal at the moment that is going to give him a chance in opposing her, an entire pantheon of gods like her, millions of celestial soldiers that are Yang Xue-lite in physical prowess, and more importantly, getting away with it. :M

    Yes. Yes, I do. Though there was a bit more too it than that after all, wasn't there. ;)

    Edit: 40 years is a bit too long and also, NONONONONooooooooooope! DO NOT even think about suggesting another ascension after the first one pissed them off so much.

    Also what happened to my favorite character, Gao Ying? I was hoping for some more cool moments with him. One of the most underdeveloped characters in my opinion.

    And you know who else disappeared along with Gao Ying? Esquilax.
    Fuck some arguments from him would come in handy now.

    No, not really. We disappear from the face of the earth, leaving all of our plans unfinished, our debts unpaid, our thoughts unspoken, in exchange for 3000+ years of sexual slavery. As far as the mortal realm is concerned, we cease to exist. All of it to become a concubine to the forces that are responsible for our every mishap, for killing our friends and innocents alike in a plot to get us as their toy.

    I don't see much difference.

    Hm... let me guess, if the spheres offered Ean kinky sex instead of torture, they would have been pretty bro? ;)

    He was actually going to appear and attack Shun in the previous update, saving your ass and distracting him from possible victory, but I couldn't work the scene in without disrupting the flow even further and having a third party involved in the duel felt a bit off at the time. Sorry about that, I did want to have him appear too.

    Well fuck. My bad, I thought we could oppose Heavens with that choice.

    If we go with A can we go on a Crusade against heavens the very next moment we see ourselves on the throne? treave

    If you go with A now obviously you are so indebted to Lady Nuwa for putting you on the throne that you would never even think of raising a hand against her. How could you!?

    Can she elevate LORD Zhang Jue to Immortal status and provide him with infinite challenges?

    What an asshole and a traitor! To even think about assaulting his own liege!

    First thing we will do after allying ourselves with Nuwa is have him thrown to the pigs. Such insolence can not be tolerated!

    They were pissed, because they didn't get their nice civil war.
    With this they actually will see some sort of conflict as well see end of Tang dynasty.

    He did say that he served Shun because he thought Shun was the best bet to bring order to the chaos and a worthy ruler. After the Yang Xue incident, he wasn't so sure anymore: he faked his own death and began doing some further investigating of his own. He's already grown suspicious of Shun's behaviour since the Sword Conference, if you notice. You would also have bumped into him before the Huashan Summit if you didn't go ahead and get yourself knocked out by Yang Xue, giving you some more hints and options in preparation.

    Why even bother with the ascension plot if the goal is to have the dynasty gone?

    Just having Shun dissappear will do.

    And let him watch his country go up in flames as he hides on the Maniac Island. Because what else are friends for? :M

    Shun already knows that Tang will fall no matter what, but he actually will have chance to live life of adventure like he wanted.
    I guess that Ascension plot mrk 2 is to lessen the chaos when people notice that empire is gone, because HEAVENZ.

    Who knows, maybe some immortials have sense of humour to herald fall of tang with ascension of their last emporor.

    His last regret is that he failed his people. Not that he didn't get to live the life the way he wanted.

    As long as he lives, he would want to help them. Which would make stepping down and willingly plunging the country into chaos rather hard. :M

    I guess you missed the part where treave just said we'd lose and also the part where we already tried that back when we were a deity and lost.

    Trust me, bro. The only way we can fuck Lady Nuwa is to fuck Lady Nuwa.
    That's stupid. It's like saying that sharks and lions are the same because both move fast and can kill you. I guess master Zhang is the same as a sphere because there was a time skip there too, huh?

    Lady Nuwa has wants, needs and plans that were far more complex than the spheres. Besides, in case you missed it, the spheres never really offered Ean much choice. At least Lady Nuwa is open for suggestions in C.

    I would actually be down with a toned-down version of The Brazilian Slaughter's plan, except we skip the theatrics: Shun abdicates immediately, the Celestials assist with the peaceful ascenton of the next dynasty and we will go with our bros (Shun, Yu, Gao Ying, etc) on a final adventure around the Old World. At the end of which, we are hers to do with as she pleases.
    Don't know if that would be wise to offer her after making her wait for so long already.

    You guys may want to examine the text again before deciding what you think Nuwa would be amenable to. :lol:

    Yeah, I am certain that if the Spheres had actual plans, it would be a completely different experience for Ean. It is much better to get tortured when your torturer has a goal!

    Nuwa's plans are very relevant to Jing, who is going to serve as her sleeping mat from now on.

    Ah, about that...
    You know what this reminds me of? The DEMONZ scene, where we were told we only can give 'one sane answer'.

    But I am sure you will come up with a suitable freeform plan. :salute::lol:

    I'll even vote for it to make the trainwreck more intertesting.

    :greatjob:

    It is obvious that she wants us and she wants us now, so one last adventure with our friends is out of the question. So I suppose we could ask for some small favors, like helping Shun put his dynasty to rest peacefully, or trolling Manxing one last time. But all of that is irrelevant, unless we have something great cooked up for C, then we ought to just vote for something else.

    Oh, no, she's open to suggestions. Don't get me wrong. Things like 'C: Lady Nuwa I love you and will serve you unconditionally' will make her very happy and even change the ending scene somewhat.

    On brazillian slaughters plan and c in general:

    Firstly, suggesting an ascension of shun will piss her the fuck off. They hate the fake ace soon we pulled before.
    Secondly, she has been pretty clear she wants shun's whole bloodline destroyed and is only willing to hold off on it if she gets something in return.

    I propose we offer her a combination of A and B:

    C
    We say that the offer of becoming emperor is tempting, but that the idea of spending eternity as her divine plaything is far more pleasant. Yet, we wish our offspring to have the dynasty in our place, so that they may offer up continual devotion and praise to her on earth while we remain slave to our undying love for her in heaven. Ask for ten years. During that time, Shun will abdicate the throne to us and reveal his duplicity in faking his father's death, setting right the blasphemy and making it known that heavens rule is not to be mocked. He will be exiled to maniac island, along with his whole household. His bloodline will die a quiet death there. Or, if it pleases her, we will kill him now, but as her pet an devoted servant, we'd ask her mercy towards us in this so that our eternal love and devotion toward her is not marred by feelings of bitterness.

    Edit: per baltika's suggestion, we'd also add that regardless of her of whether or not she would grant us our humble suggestion, we'd beg the honor of her embrace now as it is painful for us to restrain ourself from her great beauty - though only if she desires it.
