    She didn't tell.

    There was a way, but it didn't pan out because of spending time on DEMONZ.

    Was never possible because you wouldn't find out until the deed was done.

    Perhaps.

    Allow her to use her powers one more time even at the cost of her own life, but that'd only happen at Huashan Summit.

    No chance to save Qingfeng and Lanhai if you keep Lingshu. Qilin and Yunzi would bail with the kids.

    Some of them would later run wild at the nearest city, Xiangyang. Increases citizenry distrust towards pugilists and gives Shun more reason to crackdown.

    It did, but it wouldn't have activated so conveniently without the demon.

    Clearly not that obvious since an option to trust Nuwa to make a deal in good faith almost won. :lol:

    That is the whole gist of it. You're not really supposed to notice it, not at first glance. :lol:

    Said by a man who at first voted for C that would have screwed us over. :lol:

    What reasons would we have to actively not trust her?

    It did not do much for us in terms of crazy power stunts (not how it works, I assume - we were told we won't be seeing crazy upgrades from possession), but it is 'there'. And if we ever manage to return back, the God of War might still happen. :salute:

    Actually, could it be that the girls didn't lose hope we were alive because we were with them the whole time? :troll:

    Stable time-loops are stable. But the twist is that future Cao'er is actually Yifang. :M

    Nah. The twist is that Nuwa is actually Cao'er.

    I mean, after that much neglect I would totally have gone crazy and grow up a tail just to smother the bastard! :argh:

    :negative:

    Transcending the space-time continuum would be a child's play for her.

    I had a few other Another Epilogue ideas after ruling out the Zhang Manxing endings. One where Jing appears naked on top of a skyscraper in a flash of light and ending it there. One that is similar, but in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. And one where he wakes up in ancient Sumeria.

    Decided to use the more 'hopeful' version, however.

    I won't trust anybody anymore...

    Who ordered Changfeng to impersonate Zhang Jue's disciple? For what purpose? Who would benefit from this? I assume the plot to KILL ALL TENTACLES PUGILISTS wasn't in effect by then.

    How did we get the invitations? What was that mysterious committee that even the masters weren't aware of?

    Why did Bai Jiutian challenge us to a duel after the tournament? Did Madam Nie told her to?

    What hold did the eunuchs have over the pugilists? Was Mao Sanjiao a part of something bigger (he was their liaison, after all)? Come to think of it, was he a separate power from Wuxing, Ye and Cheng? Huashan was a bit of a rival to Qingcheng.

    Did Mao came up with the idea for Song Jianke to call for Killer Physician in a bid to remove the sect head, or was it completely on Jianke?

    Who organized Wufushan and for what purpose? We know there were orthodoxes and mercenaries involved, yet the masters didn't know (?) of this.

    Who eliminated Wunan and for what purpose? Why did Chanfeng fell out with BDS? Why did she work with BDS in the first place?

    Was it a coincidence that Changfeng was there after the massacre to save Xiahou You? What was she doing there?

    Who had an interest in eliminating Minamoto and why? Did the prefect know anything about it?

    Who was that Chief You and whas was his connection to the unBRO sects? Did they help him grab power in any way, or was it a completely internal matter for the beggars?

    What would have happened to Mao if we did hold the Brown Wedding? Would the sect still follow him after such a disgrace? How would Lingshu react to this?

    I first voted C>D in hope one of you would have come up with a plan to defy the goddess. When I saw that was not the case and y'all voted for submission I floped back to D

    Wasn't here. Reasons were mentioned in the update.

    Committee isn't that mysterious. Bai is on the panel after all.

    Pride.

    Wealth and fame. They were loose allies.

    No idea what this is about.

    Mao Sanjiao.

    Further punishment for Liu Chanfeng. They tried to silence her, she got away, Xiahou Yu nursed her back to health, clan got attacked and she saved him.

    They're pirates. Everyone wants them gone.

    Nie's ally.

    They'd follow him in name only and make farting noises behind his back. Lingshu would've enjoyed it.

    Which update, then?
    Was it an attempt to consolidate the sects under Nie's rule before the Fire Cult came along? Who was the mastermind?

    Right, but why send us an invitation? Was it a courtesy, or a plot connected to the one above?

    Okay, but what were the reasons to attack the Fire Cult? There is no wealth or fame to be gained there by attacking them from the shadows.

    Nie and co.

    Connected. Remember they don't know who the disciple of Zhang Jue is at the time.

    They're still a threat to the orthodox order. People do have more than one motivation to act on. Also, Lady Ji.

    Hobo Rider kind of reminds me of pre-space Senya. It's time for something completely different.

    D'oh!

    Did Mao came up with the idea for Song Jianke to get help from the Killer Physician in a bid to remove the sect head, or was it completely on Jianke?

    What did we need to do to get the 'happy' ending*, one that keeps the country together under Shun's rule without succumbing to the Gods?

    Or one does not simply defy the Heavens' will in Wuxia and that was bound to happen anyway?

    In what way the astrologer would allow us to 'better prepare' for what awaited us in the Palace?

    Was there a point in becoming Darth Vader if the country was doomed anyway? Speaking of which, how bloody would that path turn out to be? Would anyone listen to us, or would they assume that the Emperor has gone mad (as was actually the case)?

    *the current ending is as happy as it gets, as we managed to keep everyone who mattered to us alive, but still, there might have been a better one :powergamer:

    Realistically, nothing you you could have done.

    Unlock hidden options with Nuwa should you pray.

    You get a cool cape and war mask. Some listen and side with you, many don't.

    treave, how similar to ours was Yang Xue's story? I get the feeling he did the same thing for Li Ming that we have done for Shunbro.

    Yeah, but would it help us any better than the ultimate Sword Tech we've got? Or did it not make a difference in the outcome how we choose to fight?

    What about the first question? What would the astrologer tell us that could serve as a leverage when speaking to a God? Or if it wasn't leverage, then what would those secret options be for?

    Or is it... SPOILERS? :lol:
    DUN-DUN-DUNNN!
