    That is because we are not like the Son Of Heaven, Lord And Master Of All Things Under The Sun, Zhang Jue. We can never hope to surpass our divine Lord. For fuck's sake, we were too pussy to fight tigers face-to-face, we are a disgrace as a student!

    Well, if we look at this particular tale from another angle, Jing's meddling has plunged Japan into civil strife and caused the deaths of tens of thousands, and the suffering of untold more. Bad luck? :troll:

    The Gods themselves are giving you a chance to prove yourself, and you waste it by lamenting how disgraceful you have been so far? Truly, you wish to remain that way and live a pitiful excuse of a life in some eunuch's shadow.

    We got some Zhang screentime, so it's all good. I just wish we could see him wrestle with that oni, I'm dying to find out exactly what level our Master is at.

    After Lord Zhang devours the oni's essence, our fifteen points will still be nothing.

    It would have made for an awesome game mechanics if those were only unlocked by satisfaction bonuses.
    Ah, perish the thought.

    Yeeaaahh, the first thing I thought when I read that update was "we done fucked up, y'all". I knew we should've gone orthodox. :negative:

    I'm sorry, but that vote was from before I began taking the blame. Also, I voted for orthodoxy. :troll:

    The only thing we "fucked up" was sending the exiles to Zhang's island. And even then, I don't consider this a fuck-up: we secured allies for ourselves and if this is indeed what is going on in Japan right now (and not treave just playing with our emotions), then we also secured the allegiance of an entire nation in the long run (short-term, I don't think Japan will be able to do anything about anyone for a while :lol: ).

    As far as going unorthodox, nope, not a single regret (okay, maybe missing out on the Drunken Fist). This path is much more suited to the Tiger Adjutant than any other, I honestly have difficulty imagining him in the stuffy Shaolin and Huehueshan sects, maybe the Beggars or the Wuang. Besides which, I also absolutely love our teachers and the people we met and befriended so far. Say whatever you like about guys like Lord Zhang and Master Yao, but they're keeping it real and don't play petty politics and aren't hypocrites. As much as I love the Frathouse Bros (And Miecao), they are doing the "play along to get along" while everything goes to shit under them and are too lazy/apathetic to do anything about it. I much rather prefer the energetic and spirited bunch we hang out with.

    And I would retch if Jing became another BJ.

    You say that like it's a bad thing. This isn't a real codex CYOA unless we mistakenly caused a genocide or two... :M

    As glorious as an update of Zhang Jue single-handedly causing - and winning - a civil war is, I'd like to get back to the topic of Gao Ying. I am going to go with A on the basis that we killed the Imperial agent we met at the mansion for knowing our identity, and this eunuch seems about ten times more dangerous. I don't know if he's Shun's guy or not, but I do know that we killed someone else for possibly less than that.

    A

    Back to the business with Jing.

    Guys, did we kill an imperial agent just for the evulz a few updates ago?

    Because we are now going to introduce ourselves to another imperial agent that is extremely dangerous - far more than the previous one - on a hunch that maybe he is our ally.

    Edit: Huh. :| Simultaneous posting.

    treave, it was never mentioned, but did Jing pass along that message to the prince about the Minamoto?

    The circumstances were different, we were eliminating a potential threat in total secrecy. Got it.
    This is different, if Gao is an enemy of us and the Shun, both A and B make him an enemy. If he is indeed Shun's agent, though, A makes him an enemy anyway while B at least gets him off our case.

    Does anyone seriously believe that Gao is Shun's agent? He might be double agent but that he is serving Shun and Shun alone?
