    Uh, I think he's got other shit to do. I'm pretty sure he doesn't do this for a living. :lol:

    I'm just happy we finally had our first (almost) unanimous vote in ages.

    treave, if we hadn't stayed with Qi Liuwu to practice the Dragon Palms, would we have gotten a chance to train with the Constables before leaving?
    At this point he can just quit his job, write up a P&P RPG of this setting and continue through his whole life just releasing expansions and campaigns for it.

    So if they start hanging around each other will their bad luck cancel each other's out, or will it just get twice as bad?

    So what you're telling me is they're going to go sightseeing and leave a completely accidental swathe of terror and destruction across China?

    We'd end up accidentally killing each other. Right at the very moment when both of us are about to deliver the killing strike.

    His good luck and our terrible luck combine together to see our entire harem dead and the two of us castrated.

    It would be the annihilation of all luck in the universe, destroying the whole fabric of causality.

    Our bad luck and his good luck collide and annihilate each other, leaving all three of us with Luck 5.

    Up in heaven, Nu Wa shakes her fist in indignation.

    treave, say we encounter Pang Xiaohu again and instantly memorize his axe style, but what about the Axe skill itself? Would we get a bonus to that as well, or would it be "0 Axe+powerful axe technique?"

    Whenever you execute that particular technique, you'll be doing it at the same skill that Pang Xiaohu has, but as for skill in general, it will bring you to about half the skill points he has in axe as you retroactively work out some of the basic principles of axemanship from the technique you have memorized. For example, he has 8 skill, you will get 4 in axe, but when you use his technique you'll perform it like a master despite your 4 skill. If you do not use his technique while swinging an axe around, you'll be treated as the mediocre axeman that you are.

    If you already have sufficient understanding of the weapon skill, it won't work. For example, if you already have 5 skill in axes, Wuxiang Qiankun won't add anything to your skill level.

    I guess higher ranks could go like this:

    Level 6: mimic higher level internal energy, memorize higher level internal energy instantly
    Level 7: memorize higher level internal energy instantly, memorize related unused techniques by lower level internal energy
    Level 8: memorize higher level internal energy instantly, memorize related unused techniques by same level internal energy
    Level 9: memorize higher level internal energy instantly, memorize related unused techniques by higher level internal energy
    Level 10: memorize instantly, devise new techniques and variations instantly.

    Level 10 probably sounds more broken than it is, considering if you have a level 10 skill you can basically already do that.
