    Or perhaps kickstarter for couple of short stories?
    I would totally support that.

    I wonder if we can substitute qi with an external power source (thermonuclear-based?) and train our own personal army of Yang Xue-like soldiers.

    ONE VISION, ONE PURPOSE!

    The Heavens don't stand a chance.

    Come to think of it, a Wuxia X-com vs. the Heavans game would be fucking A.

    When Cao'er discovers a similarity between qi and energy produced in an atomic reaction, we will realize that the mastery of Wuxian Qiankun gives us an ability to control nuclear fusion at will, while the mastery of Eternal Flame protects us from extreme temperatures...
    We will become a fucking walking sun-bomb. Parlay with that, Nuwa!

    treave thank you man.
    Both parts of the ending are perfect. I do hope that Jing will be a major character in our next LP.

    Also thanks to everyone that voted D, you are BROs :bro:

    Well I have a fuckton of questions. treave

    1) Firstly who was Gao Ying? Where did he come from and what were his goals and motivations? How would he had fared against other pugilists despite not being a pugilist himself? or if he was under who did he train and how did he get into Shun's service?

    2) How was Yang Xue defeated by Shun? I mean he was many times stronger than Wang Zhengchong and Ahura Mazda from what I understood and could even best Zhang Jue, Sword Saint and all the other pugilist combined, and that was before getting that elixir and becoming god like. So I take it he was much much more powerfull than we were, while we pretty much bested Shun in our last fight. So what happened back there?

    3) You mentioned all our companions would have died had we not killed zhang manxing back then. Who would have killed Zhang Jue and the Sword Saint and how? They were pretty much the most powerfull guys in all jianghu.

    4) Who was Lady Ji and what was her involvement with Zhang Jue and with all the god plots against the throne. What was the purpose for that manor?

    5) What were Nie Wuxing and his wife up to? And what happened to Qilin's mother back when she dissapeared after Qilin was born?

    6) How did Shun get possesed? Was it the Sword? What would have happened had we taken the Sword with us? And What would have happened if we had backed up Shun on his rampage against the sects?

    7) Speaking of Swords, who was the Sword Demon? What happened to the demon that possesed us and what was with that weird question about why do we fight? In the end that thing was passed up and nothing came to it.

    8) Who was Chi You's lover? I mean from the characters? I hardly believe that she never appeared at all.

    9) What would had the astrologist say about our fate?

    10) Why did the Emperor take us for Shun?

    11) Had Wang Zhengchong and the cool masters lived and if Super Ahura would have emerged how different the story would have been?

    12) What happened with the Little Tiger in the end?

    13) Where the fuck did Tulu Houdu go and what was his agenda?

    I'll be back with more questions once I think more about it.

    [manxing]Huh, D went better than I expected. I might've voted for x>D, but you've shown me the error of my ways.[/manxing]

    No, seriously, with the exception of having to bail out Shun and having to fuck around with the time-space continuum to go back a thousand or so years, this is a great ending.

    We did miss out on hot naga sex though. D:

    Also, Elfberserker's post-apocalyptic wuxia idea thing sounds fucking awesome.

    And treave, you forgot to add a title to our character sheet. Namely "Legend".

    Before I barrage with quostions, I would like to thank treave for such wonderful CYOA.
    This was pretty much most entertaining and addictive thing this and last year.

    1) Which one of Zhang Jue techniques ( wuni fist, chuchan fist, fanfex sword ) would had been most powerful, if we had been able to test them throughtly and developed them fully? How would they compared to our claws?

    2) what kind of special qi did the scholar, farmer and orphan had? I think I remember that each of them were special snowflakes.

    3) Was it pure luck that farmerbro was recruited into wudang during young tiger tournament since he happened to battle one of Wudang Bros and not lets say Kunlun kid? Or did BigWang had his eyes on him from start? Would any other sect recruit him?

    4) What kind of techniques scholarbro used? Did he learn drunken fist or that Yuhue hall neigon technique?

    5) Could Yao had been able to solve our Qi problem? Or would had we been left to hope that we would had run into BigWang or Lord Zhang?

    Edit: 6) what happened to songfeng after shun got banished?

    Aw, Cao'er! Probably my biggest regret over the course of the LP was not hugging her all the way down to Yang Xue.

    I'm feeling a bit :smug: about the eternal flame saving us. Knew the zoroastrian stuff was worth something, though they probably didn't get around to displacing much. I do like the fusion religious cult/ fanatical assassins thing, kind of like the namesakes for the word 'assassin'. Did the cult get around to accomplishing much in the future?

    I... I don't feel oppressed enough yet. :negative:

    One successful Kickstarter worth $30 later... please visit my Patreon and contribute for Part 2! Since I got 30x the budget I usually did for this project, the scope expanded considerably and out of my control. I had to cut the stories in half. :negative:

    All-in-all. this was a great ending to a great CYOA. That moment with Shun was worth everything we went through, I always knew he was our brother from the very beginning. Looking forward to busting him out from Space Alcatraz. :salute: That being said, this is obviously not the end (I doubt the third option for our next CYOA will be about Him and Shangguan in the Americas, sadly), so I'll refrain from too many 'what ifs,' since we'll be seeing all of our friends when we return.

    Question time:
    Zhang Jue: who is he? where did he come from? What is his history with Shangguan, Abbot Fangci and Nie Wuxing (the man seemed afraid of and hateful towards him, what happened?). Did he ever father children? Can we see his character sheet, please? And will we ever encounter him again?
    Rong Muben and Songfeng School: What happened to them?
    Jing's descendants: if our boy was Yesugei and his branch formed the Mongol Empire, what did our daughter do to surpass our deeds?
    Nuwa: this is a massively spoilerific question, but did she do what she did out of love? I have a theory that this whole scenario is due to both of them, Nuwa and Chi You, fucking up their relationship.

    General questions: what were the most powerful unarmed and sword technique in the setting, not counting the legendary techniques; what do Wuxiang Qiankun and Luanshi Wuchangdao look at their maximum levels; was there ever any chance to unlock some or any of Chi You's powers during this playthrough; what happened to our Ameshas; why did the old Emperor pick us for Shun, what did he need from the Cursed Child and what happened during his journey to India?
    That should cover it for now, thanks in advance for the answers. :salute:

    A really cool cat.

    Yes.

    Nope.

    Train for only a year in Maniac Training II.

    They left the monastery later, settled down with some nice women, and began working on a top secret project that would span generations. Jing would later meet their descendants...

    It was all part of the plan.

    All part of the plan.

    Exploding the palace with the Emperor in it, primarily. The other pugilists had far longer and more illustrious careers that overshadowed his in the end.

    If you ask for it with C.

    No.

    Every bit, even the poles.

    No.

    That part's actual mythology.

    A mortal priestess.

    An eunuch and orphan, raised like Jing. Good in a straight fight, deadlier in assassination.

    With your new technique you could have overcome the gulf in raw power and beaten Yang Xue.

    Yang Xue, Zhang Manxing, Nie Wuxing and Madam Nie. Betrayal's a bitch.

    Immortal agent. Manor was just a useful hobby to while away the years while waiting for the multiple plots to come to fruition.

    Corruption and power. Possessed by an immortal.

    He wasn't possessed, technically. Sword sped things up. The influence began when he was sorting through his father's lab. Some books brought back from Lady Ji's Manor were there. You become Darth Vader.

    Nothing came of the demon's possession? Check the updates when Nuwa appears, when you decide not to trust her, and when she attacks you.

    Which one's your guess?

    You're fucked. That's before you get a bit rough with him.

    It was all part of the plan.

    More epic.

    Bandits gonna bandit. Carved out a comfortable little fiefdom during the chaos.

    Retired. Agenda was just to make Wudu profitable and influential. Qilin showed enough backbone and leadership for him to leave it in her hands.

    The sword technique would have been most useful, considering the opponents you faced.

    I used to know but then I forgot.

    It was a toss up between Wudang or Huashan.

    Running away techniques and techniques to attack from afar.

    He would eventually have brought you to Wang when the time was right.

    They were a minor school. The same thing that happened to all the other minor schools.

    Zhang Jue is Zhang Jue and his adventures are too many to recount in a simple Q&A. Also, a real man does not need a character sheet.

    Same thing that happened to all the other minor schools.

    Queen of the Desert.

    She just needs your love and attention.

    Taiji/Dragon Palms/Shaolin Skills/Vairya's Fist for unarmed, it's highly debatable. On the sword side there is no such conundrum: Sword Saint is best.

    They look awesome.

    Not really, no.

    They did their duties in their own way.

    All part of the plan.
