    A - cao'er wants to fix it and we've disappointed her enough.
    A- lets stay close
    X- Need to see some arguments
    A- she came to us first. Turning her down would be douchy.

    Voting A for the last choice as well. Gotta get Cao'er and Qilin points, and we did implicitly promise our uncle that we'd train her up to be able to compete in the Summit.

    I just consider it a good idea for us to travel with more of our Ameshas. They can learn from us and we can learn from them, especially Vairya's super technique, we broaden their experience and build solid relationships with our lieutenants. Also, by the way they described it, they will be just wasting time sitting in the Temple. The question isn't why, it's why not?

    Holy crap, lots of thing to consider!

    Also, so the Sword Saint was REALLY sick. Ineresting.

    Also, Cao'er manages to put "lovable" and "creepy" together. :love:

    This is way better than "A life for a life", the Sword Saint is a total bro (and doesn't need it, unless Yang Xue pays a visit or something) and it wards off Zhang from killing him. I don't think Murong Yandi will like it, but I'm sure he can endure. We DID sacrifice our arm to save the EMPRAH.

    You could say Saint is quite the fine...


    arms dealer :yeah:

    Interesting that Shun gave us some pointers for WQS, seems his scholarly :obviously: knowlodge allows him to give us some pointers. He must've learned it hella fast because I'm pretty sure he used it during the fight.

    I think Varya for extra firepower and Amaretat to get some experience is perfect. Ameretat is also a healer, and in fact she has a healing technique we really need to get her to teach to Cao'er. I could be persuaded to leave out Varya because he's our second-best fighter.


    So I vote AA24A

    Ok Lets see here

    A
    I am traditionalists, Wuxian fights should use traditional arms without any of those hightech replacements. Also Cao'er points and boy do we need them
    B
    We made pledge to travel together. It would be dick move towards Emei for us to brake it.
    Of course this will be a problem, if we take more Amesha spenta with us.

    X A 23
    Where the fuck is Xiangyang between current city and Chang'en?

    A
    She is our first waifu and for some reason we refused to marry her.
    It's a shame that we can't train Xu Jing as well we could, but there are things that we do for the love.

    Edit: Amesha spenta flop

    Xsaora Vairya is Rob Halford, the Guardian of METAAAAAL!
    *cue thunder and lightning*
    And the dude we fought at Heihu to save Qilin. Awesome dude, closest of our Ameshas to Lord Zhang.

    Yes, but it'd have to be modified. If you're going to be training Qilin, you might not have the time.

    I remember Vairya. And Vahishta. And Armaiti, now that we've been travelling with her.

    Speaking of "Closest to Lord Zhang", How does Vairya stack up against Jing? Would he be able to spar against Zhang without being killed?

    Letting him fight Zhang Jue would probably be insulting to Armaiti, though.

    Rob can tear us a new asshole. Which is why he is a great teacher to have with us. I think he's a must. And if he can defeat us, then Armaiti can't be butthurt about him fighting the Lord.

    I'm open on the second Amesha, but rather give some spotlight to our Aquaman, Manah.

    Vahista - Amesha Spenta of Devotion. 2nd in command to Ahura/Jing, regal, powerful, strong. Turned into a sad-sack alcoholic after we killed Lord Ahura.

    Varya - The GUARDIAN OF METAL! Powerful as fuck, Zhang-level fighter, has a epic bullshit DBZ move.

    Armaiti - Amesha Spenta of the Earth! Aparently wants the D since we fought. Thinks Jing looks better with one arm, for some reason. Her precedessor got killed by Zhang Jue, wants REVENGE on our master, aparently a deathseeker.

    Amaretat - Don't know much about her, she's newer, more inexperienced, intimately healed Jing after his ascension.

    Heurvatat - Also new, likes Jing more informal style.

    Manah - Don't know.

    You forgot that Heurvatat asked us to not brake Yunzi chastisity before wedding and she got bit mad that we kind said that we were no hurry to marry Yunzi.
    In other words Yunzi adoptive MILF.

    For the arm:

    A.

    Chuji is being a true bro here and I would hate to turn him down also it would let Cao'er feel/be important. She wants to fix us then let her fix us.

    If it works it should also help us attend to our other responsibilities. The Fire Cult springs to mind but another example is right there in the update. If we want to train Qilin ourselves (which I am fairly certain will win no matter what) then we should be mindful that doing so will limit our ability to improve our own martial arts which likely means limiting our development of a new fighting style between now and the summit.

    It will be easier to help her if we first help ourselves.


    For the escort:

    B.

    We will be traveling 'together'/along the same route either way so I don't have a strong opinion here and can see the benefits of both but I want to summon some of our Amesha Spenta and I would rather not have them showing up while we are traveling in the same group as Nie. It is likely to raise the wrong sorts of questions.

    A little distance will do us some good there I think.


    For the Amesha Spenta:

    A.1&4

    So we have:

    I. Vairya - Guardian of Metal and all around badass. We need to pick this guy and get some training in.
    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]

    II. Haurvatat - the 'mother' figure, she might be a bit stifling.
    III. Manah - Is mostly a blank slate, might be interesting though.
    IV. Ameretat - should be fun and we could use another healer but she is also likely the weakest as she is quite new

    Rob (obviously) to help train either us or Yunzi (maybe both) and Ameretat to have a secondary healer around so we do not have to lose all healing capabilities if we have to split up again. If we are going to travel with Nie though we should probably avoid summoning anyone so if 2.A wins I will probably flip to 3.B.

    As for training Qilin:

    A.

    Easy, she is family of course we help her.

    A, B, A (1 & 4>3), A

    You guys are neglecting poor Cao'er by refusing to take the arm. She wants to feel special too.

    The middle choices I have no idea what I want, or the pros and cons of each. I mean, having some Amesha Spenta backup would be nice if we're going to take the Zhang down, but I don't know which ones would be worth taking over the others for that purpose. Could we just ask Armaiti?

    The same goes for travelling with Huashan. Will it just be us and our harem travelling with them, or is the Emperor going to tag along or something?

    The last choice is purely powergamey. We shouldn't neglect our own advancement.

    As a professional physician Cao'er would be delighted to have a colleague present I am sure. Ameretat could even teach her a few things to better heal Jing when he is injured. Don't deny this fine opportunity to make Cao'er better in bed a better physician, it would be a crime to deny her that.

    All of them are master-level combatants, but Vairya is the best at fighting out of the four. Haurvatat has a variety of sensory and perception techniques, Manah is more of a thinker, and Ameretat does healing.

    The Emperor is making a bee-line straight back for the capital and will be riding ahead. The sword entourage won't be as fast.
