    Sheee-it. Should've taken Old Yang's training, that arm was only holding us back.
    A, accept this as a sign of Imperial favour. Will give our Cult some mad street cred.

    No we fucked up in a number of ways:

    1) Not unleashing Xuezi
    2) Not bringing Armaiti
    3) Not picking the swords option

    Can we buy two, one for us and one for honorable Master Yang? We own him something for that learning we did.

    Which option was the immortal romance option?

    No, I voted against unleashing Xuezi and for the unarmed option.

    I wanted to flop to B, tbh, but with C poised to win if the vote splits, I didn't want to risk it.

    A. Just need to unlock it. Or it might be that he wants us to succed him if something bad happens. For immortal emperor Jing!

    Also.

    Guys think positevely!
    IF we are ever going to back to this setting and Xu Jing will be the villain then he will be easier to defeat when he has no longer two arms

    Lets see how many limbs we can chop off before all of this ends

    Xuezi would have successfully kept Shun from getting wounded, held out long enough for the altar to be broken, then stomped the veiled woman in a straight techniques fight thanks to her supreme mastery of kungfu and allow Shun to walk right up to the frozen immortal and stab her (after Xuezi's interrogated her enough).

    The rest... eh, that's all I'll say. If you think the other options would have been better, great. If you think the other options would have been worse, that's great too! :M

    Her techniques are the same as the innortal at best, what would have changed apart using her as a meatshield?
    I don't know, what would have changed?
    Besides I have voted for bringing everyone with us, I can argue that anyone dispersing our team made the worst choice.
    Could be, but you are forgetting that your suggested option of taking the sword from Shun would have killed him.

    Excellent, this arm was holding us back all along and it was a worthy price for our sins of WQS-popamole. We shall provide Shun with the sword, cut off our other arm, in addition to both of our legs, then become Central Great whilst only being able to move via levitation thanks to our tremendous qi.

    Well what happened happened. I actually suspect unleashing Xuezi would have had consequences later down the line, i.e. she wouldn't be such a compliant puppy following us around after that. treave do we now have any understanding of what Shun was going on about when he kept saying 'don't worry I got this'? Was he really just putting up a brave front? That part would be good info for interacting with him later on.

    I wonder whether the immortal is really dead, we know so little about their metaphysics that we can't be sure. She could be one of those recurring enemies.

    As for the vote, I'm currently inclined to B. It could be a great weapon but we've got even less arms for all these swords now, it seems to protect Shun, Shun seems intent on getting into danger he can't handle, etc.

    Of course he is.

    Also, he is suggesting that all the options were fucked when we picked up a solo battle against the immortal.

    You still have no idea, and he just says he would've figured a way out one way or another.

    God fucking dammit. If he hadn't said that, we would've just unleashed Xuezi.

    Uh, if you go back and look at the options in that update, they both talk about doing something. I'm not sure where the impression that unsealing Xuezi would muck up Shun's plans came about.

    Shun had a sword to his throat and insisted everything was fine.

    We assumed that unsealing Xuezi was therefore unnecessary and just going to hurt her.
