    Nah, Qilin has good reaction and instincts. With her qinggong, she's fine.

    Then we send Cao'er up to take care of the emperor, and work our way out through the tunnels with Qilin.

    I'm willing to believe this is an authentic Chinese torture method. They did not fuck around.

    All things considered this is still going reasonably well, also I knew it was not a monster... I wonder if there is some way to reason with the man now that the Emperor is out of his reach? Though he is probably too far gone for that.

    Zhang Jue is amazing, moving on...

    For the choice I think A should do the trick. I don't particularly like the idea of Jing shielding Cao'er with his body. If we toss her up then we can focus on landing properly and if she jumps back in she can focus on landing properly. I want her with the Emperor to make sure the old man gets out of this alive and in one piece and Jing can probably handle any injuries that Quilin may have.

    I think Gao will probably go through with the plan now, his moment to betray Shun has passed. I mean why not kill the Emperor while he waited before Jing could get there to stop him? He set it up in such a way that he would have to fight Jing, there is more to this then just Shun and the Emperor, I think. If we
    entrust Cao'er to him "in our last act" I think he will look after her, though I will admit that I could be completely misjudging the man.

    The only real advantage I see with B is that it keeps Cao'er with us but it increases the chance of us getting injured and we leave the Emperor unmonitored (what if he wakes up or his health deteriorates for example).

    Hmm...

    I think that there's good odds on the madman being a surviving Prince.

    Zhang Jue once again demonstrates why he is the Master, and we the apprentice.

    That certainly explains why the madman refers to the emperor by his original name, and why he'd be hidden away in a secret tunnel underneath the capital.

    He may just not bother anyone when he doesn't see an opportunity for revenge.

    Wasn't the urge present to estimate Zhangs current strength potential? Now you know, a nine-headed snake or dragon would beat him.

    As for the current vote, I could care less about Quilins well-being but don't get Cao'er in danger aswell. A

    Credit where is it due. I did not expect this to turn out as well as it did. Voting A for this choice. Jing's risk of injuring himself is higher if he has to shield Cao'er, and she won't be able to heal him easily without pressure points. And while she seems more capable than before, she is still not a fighter and would be another person he has to worry about protecting. Plus, this way someone can be trusted to watch the Emperor and relay information to Shun and others. I have a feeling that if Gao Ying was alone, he might leave out certain details in his report.

    I'm going to abstain from voting for this time around. I just really hope that Cao'er doesn't jump after us when A wins, that could badly injure her.

    Anyway, treave , shouldn't we have the recipe for Yao's Protective Sheath in addition to the ointment, or are the two considered to be the same in that?

    ran away from Zhang Jue before the fight could be finished, leaving behind a fang. His punk ass was scared.

    I imagine Jing could tell her how important it is that the emperor makes it to the rendezvous point alive and how he's entrusting her with seeing it through as he hurls her up. Cao'er may care deeply about Jing's safety but she's also very concerned with doing what he needs her to do to the best of her ability when he's depending on her.

    treave, I think a man like Zhang Jue should have his own entry in the faction reputations list, with his own custom ratings from "Bored" to "Amused."

    Man...tough choice. But since I voted to kill the emperor, I wont vote to split the party to keep him alive.

    Expect that if Quilins survived Jing will be able to stabilize her and should be able to sneak quite well while caring her.

    After Shun becomes Emperor some heads should start rolling. I mean the prince's and their mother's heads. Though I trust Ying might make sure they all meet an untimely end.
