    Well, the point would be to do that while she is still getting started. And Jing is good at mustering up effort when he should be down for the count.

    AAABA I think.

    Qilin and Yunzi might need backup, so Armaiti Murondi Yandi might be good idea.

    Rest of the company should go after shun and Miss Song and Guo Fu will nice have, if we need to convince Taishan and Kunlun discpline that we are on same side for now.

    That would leave our crew as Jing, Gao Ying, Guo Fu, Song Lingshu, Armaiti, and Xuezi. We could use Armaiti's help and Shun would obtain a proper pretext for giving the Fire Cult amnesty.

    Also, I think sword skills will be needed there, so Murong Yandi is our best bet to back up the girls if anything happens.

    It may be too early to tell, but it appears that we have made reasonably good choices so far.

    Now that we've agreed to carry it together, Wuxing can't make off with the sword without it looking like a theft of something equally shady, and that is not what you want to do with the royal sword.

    I would have been extremely uneasy if I had to let Qilin go after her step-father (and I bet her mother is nearby) without having met them the night before and resisting their attempts to get at her. Now she have decided on her path and is not going to be swayed from it.

    Maybe we have finally found our opportunity to serve the state and the Emperor and get that amnesty for the Fire Cult. Oh, and the Emei would be ecstatic if we manage to save the Emperor as their voice and representative.

    I am thinking our Nie team is stretching itself a bit thin at the moment. The absense of Cao'er is going to be strongly felt in the aftermath, I'm afraid. I guess we might want to reinforce them with Yandi, since I don't see if there is a better use for him.

    He was caught by surprise with the first move and already down when she got started. And all the willpower in the world doesn't help if you're physically unable to do something at that point in time.

    I don't feel comfortable with sending just Yunzi, Qilin and Yandi after the Douchebag Council. Everyone there is Wuxing's patsy or in his pocket. I'd rather we send Armaiti (give her permission to KO the girls and drag them away if things get too hot) and Yandi with them.

    treave, it is a bit unclear to me from the update, but did people realize the Emperor was with them? It looks like Madam Nie did, but what about the rest of them? It does not look like it.

    If so, why do Su Liaojing and Liu Qi pursue the woman?

    Edit: ah, nevermind.

    You know, bros, I get the feeling that Shun was planning for this all along, to separate the wheat from the chaff:
    Seems very perfect and rehearsed. I guess we'll see.

    Hm, that would make sense. The Emperor would be the best person to have the First Emperor's grave excavated.

    At any rate, I really think we should have Armaiti try to rescue Shun. That would earn the Fire Cult cred for amnesty in the great plains. Shun already told us to keep our eyes open for opportunities to have the Fire Cult serve the emperor. This seems to be it.

    Didn't understand he was referring to Shun either.

    Damn, I am getting sloppy.

    Yup. That's confirmation of at least one person knowing.

    Wouldn't the Fire Lord rescuing him be enough? Anyway, I'm not too hung up on sending Armaiti specifically, just that I think a three person party isn't good enough to send after Wuxing's gang. She's just our best candidate right now.

    I'm not so sure. I think Jing needs demonstrate that the Fire Cult under his rule would assist the emperor.

    Shun depends on us going so lets not ok? :troll:

    Also Armaiti goes with waifus so they are safer. Guo Fu goes for the non ambiguous situation.
    Lingshu goes chasing for rep. Yandi goes to prowide firepower for Lingshu.

    Isn't that what saving him ourself will do? We are the Cult's leader, our actions reflect on the whole faction.

    With his rep, it's hard to convince folks that Jing isn't just going off on his own, like always.

    He needs to actually demonstrate some leadership over the cult and prove they are trustworthy, I think.

    That's actually a good point, people will know they can trust Jing, who is a Han born and bred, but the Cult itself may be a different story for the Eight Sects. Yeah, we can earn them amnesty from THE EMPRAH, but having one of the Ameshas fighting alongside them to rescue Shun will earn them trust from the Sects themselves.
    Then we must send Yandi with the girls.

    No, it isn't.

    As long as we are their leader and they follow our lead, it should not matter to people.

    A leader and its organisation are one. Why were we so cautious trying not to offend anyone after becoming the Fire Lord, if not for that fact?

    The BRO sects and their spokesmen (Fangci and Guo Fu) accept the cultists (Yunzi and Armaiti) because they trust us and we vouch for them. That's how it works. That happened with Lingshu and Yifang, too. They didn't need any other proof but our word.

    Now, the other sects (i.e. UNBRO ones) are another matter, but again, their problem does not lie with the Cult alone, but with us.

    TOME, yep.

    Nevill, except it clearly does matter:
    Shaolin is taking a wait-and-see stance on this. We need to show something.

    I think Absinthe is right on money about bringing Armaiti with us.
    I am still little scared with Yurondi Mandi being only support for Qilin and Armaiti.
