    It is going to be Four Lions formation all over again, isn't it?

    I guess I'll support Smashing Axe's idea and vote A. There really is little reason to become involved in yet another assault on manxing so soon after our first fiasco. We don't need his death pinned on us - what exactly do we get out of it except for a momentary satisfaction?

    It is best to leave Huashan matters to the ones who live here. Whether manxing lives or dies here, Bai Jiutian will have to deal with the wrath of zhang manlou. It is better to split them then unite them through the hatred towards us.

    I really hope we've learned something since the last time, too.

    I am really tempted to vote for murdering Manxing, but surely he isn't that stupid to come after us alone for second time? Then again maybe Bai Jiutian and Xu Jing together are powerful enough to defeat the cosmic power called the luck?

    I can't really to see reason not either ally with the fucker or kill him.

    Somehow we get blamed for killing either Zhang Manxing or Bai Jiutian, even if we do nothing since our reputation is kind a shitty. Zhang probably has some sort of poison or other nasty thing to aid him in combat or like others have suggested then he has hostages. Neither are ideal ally, but I think that gambling to get Bai Jiutian's...Cooperation might be worth in the end.

    Now there's an idea. If we attack the both of them, nobody will believe that we have dealings with Bai Jiutian.

    I'm going to go against the grain here and suggest that we go after Zhang Manxing ourselves and leave Bai Jiutian out of it. A curious advantage of our reputation is that it simply can't get any worse. We are no worse off for attempting to kill him, because we've already tried to do so in the past. However, if BJ is seen attacking Zhang Manxing, his rep (and his usefulness as an ally) goes right down the shitter. If we take the heat for this - and really, there is little downside in our situation for doing so* - then we'll still have someone well-positioned at Huashan to help us out. We have lots of party members, but what we really need is an inside man.

    * Yeah, yeah, it'll piss off the extremely powerful and secretive Zhang clan that Bai Jiutian has just warned us extensively about, but we stand a better chance of defeating them if we have someone like him working with us in the orthodox sects, where we are desperately short of friends at the moment. This confrontation was going to happen sooner or later, but I think that having BJ's rep intact will leave us in a better position to strike at the Zhang clan.

    B, although if ERYFKRAD's proposal is doable, I'll go with that.

    Flopping to B since Esquilax has pretty good reasons.

    It should be pretty clear from the update that Zhang will run if he has half the chance, so you can't fight both of them at once unless you want to kill him first before fighting Bai Jiutian. If that's the case, vote any of the choices where you attack Zhang.

    Not sure I agree with that. Not only we would be involving ourselves with manlou against chief Zheng's advice (and against common sense), but we will gain reputation for killing the sick as well. As if we need more shit on our plate.

    'If BJ is seen attacking zhang manxing'? What about BJ being seen playing weiqi and drinking tea with MTP? I'd assume that whomever zhang expects to be in the bushes have witnessed the same scene manxing did. If any witnesses get away, BJ is going to be in a world of trouble.

    My intention is not to sink BJ - if it was, I would be voting D, - but I want to remind you that BJ will try to sink you without batting an eyelid if it keeps him afloat. manlou will blame him if manxing perishes here regardless of who the killer is, and the need to clear the suspicion and prove his allegiance might actually have an opposite effect and distance you from each other.

    Why hang yourself on your own rope? This place was chosen by BJ, and the security risks lie with him. It is not our fault he got discovered. Let him solve the problem he created - if anything, additional pressure from manlou will make him more willing to compromise in the future.

    I guess I want to have some dirt on him, but not enough to bury him completely. Moreover, I don't want to make his dirty work for him.

    You can assume that Zhang just arrived. If he had been hiding there for some time, the two of you would have caught him earlier.

    C, though knowing our/Zhang's luck Bai will kill us in the crossfire.

    I wonder what ZM would tell BJ if we decided to hide when we heard him.

    B is stupid BJ will pin manxing death on us. While A or C makes BJ our ally - we have incruminating dirt on him.

    I bet A, B and C will all have us take the blame one way or the other.
    D would only serve to ruin BJ's reputation and i dont like it at all if there is an option to have a hidden ally.

    You'd have to spin a very long tale if you want to make us responsible when we didn't even touch him. Remember that in this setting it is possible to determine who killed whom by traces that qi and techniques leave on the bodies.

    How do you blame A on us while simultaneously presenting the body as proof? Especially when manlou already suspects BJ.

    The best move for BJ would be if zhang manxing and his support crew go missing. I'd think he would be better off never mentioning he saw us or manxing in that case.
