    B1. Maybe we have improved enough to disrobe both of them in one move...

    The girl just can't catch a break.

    It is not enough that she had to grow up constantly lying to everyone about her gender and character, it is not enough her motherfigure have involved her in some nefarious schemes, but she also got tossed aside as soon as zhang family entered the picture and had to accept a rapist and a talentless hack as her shidi and equal. Not long after she tries to break free out of that mire, she loses her virginity to a scoundrel, gets pregnant, her attempt at gaining independence gets found out by the very person she tried to distance herself from, and on top of that she is forced to seek help from Madam Nie to make an abortion.

    For a character that is supposed to be our 'enemy', there is too much unfortunate stuff happening around her for me not to sympathize with her.

    Really, what is holding her in Huashan anymore? Is it Madam Nie's influence? Does she want to become the next Huashan head after Wuxing? With her reputation (woman or not) and skills, the girl can start a sect of her own. What does she want to get out of it that would be worth it all?

    Head of one of great 8 sects is very tempting and powerful positition.
    Not to mention the poor girl has already sacrified so much that she really can't give up now either.

    If she started her own sect then maybe she could get some crappy building, no noble sponsorship and perhaps 10 students to start with, while with hueshan you already have nice living place, good sect reputation as well +200 underlings, + donations from nobles.

    Still poor Bai Jiutian.

    I suppose so. Still, Nie Wuxing is not going to retire anytime soon, and now that he has got his heir, he can designate him his successor if he wanted to, like Song Jianke did with his daughter.

    I don't know. If that is the dream she chases, it is awfully frail and flimsy.

    True, but the the child is just a baby at this point.
    I doubt that even Nie Wuxing can make his boy next head of hueshan unless the boy will become good martial artist, since Bai Jiutian does have suberb skills as well seems to be pretty popular in Hueshan. Besides it seems that the move Song Jianke did was pretty unusual since head of sect should be biggest badass around to scare the contenders away.

    Besides being currently one of top Hueshan people is not bad position to be compared to other options she has avaible.
    She could start a new school, but I doubt that it could sate her ambitions and she might know too much to Madam Nie to simply to let her go free.

    Bai Jiutian does have enought rep and skill to make succession ugly unless the contender is even close to her level, not to mention she is pretty good at intrigue for orthodox pugilist.

    Wonder if we can use Xiaohu's presence in our group to cause some problems for Wuxing? Like, say, arranging his escape and then making it look like incompetence from their side? And then they deliver a fake sword to intercede for a clan of traitors. Yeah, their rep will be pretty much fucked. Now we just have to get our hands on their yin manual.

    That looks like a job for Gao Ying. I don't remember the last time when we framed anyone successfully. We just aren't cut out for this.

    Not to mention that we are like number 1 on suspect ion list even if we manage to somehow frame escape on incompetency of Hueshan.
    We already have trickster and cunning reputation and are leader of unorthodox punch of this group...

    We would definitely need outside help...A outside help with good reputation.

    C2, I don't see what's to be gained in cavorting with the Twins, they also seem like super stuck up boring types that I don't really want to see us waste screentime on. As for Pang, we really have very few reasons to deal with him. Nie has won this Manual hunt, let's move on and see if we can do better in fresh pastures.

    Or to sabotage the Nie family and deny them the yin manual. We'll see what the next update brings us, just speculating now.
    Anyway, back to D:OS.

    Practice with our arm? Basically I'm up for a fight whenever possible unless it seems that we might die from it or something, if just for the practice Jing gets. If we beat them maybe they'll whine less.

    I was going to vote A1 and come up with arguments why I think it is better, but while doing so I argumented myself over to B1. Great update, I really liked the old bandit.

    Voting Not B.

    Cao'er just warned us against overusing our arm. This is a bad idea.

    Who said we were restricted to that arm? We have plenty of other martial arts available if Jing feels he might stress it.

    We also don't know if it's safe to really use our neigong for now.

    This is needlessly dangerous.

    A1,

    Since we seem to be willing to tell the truth to our enemies we may as well go all the way. Can't wait to see what will happen when we tell them we have the Saint's arm.

    I doubt we will be able to convince the Nie family to help but we will not find out till we ask so we might as well try. Not sure what we can do for the Little Tiger even if we do arrive in time for the trial though. He will be sorely missed.

    No point making things more difficult on this trip than I assume they're gonna get anyway. Fighting might impact us more than we need, and trying to curry more favours with Nie will also cause us more hassle than its worth. We'll end up paying somehow.

    We have already used our neigong. Where did the sword qi came from otherwise, the branch?

    A little sparring (as opposed to a duel to the death) is something that should allow us to get back in shape, rather than harm us.
