    A1. At a remote place and also ask the girls to prevent anyone from witnessing the duel.

    treave, what does this mean? According to wikipedia: xiong is "The pinyin romanization of several Chinese characters, including (elder brother), (chest), (heroic) and (bear)".

    Elder brother is the only thing that makes sense in this context. Was BJ embarrased by Jing clasping fingers or making fun of the confused nature of her gender? Or probably both? Sorry if I ruined the moment by over-analysis.

    I'm going to go with B3>A1. As mentioned, I'm sure Yunzi would love the opportunity to fight, although I think there are arguments to be made that another of our retinue would be better matchup against the sword couple.

    Elder brother, yes. As for embarrassment, Jing was getting too physical for her tastes, sparked some unwanted memories, and she lost her cool for a moment.

    Taking on a pair of legendary sword wielders alone is a fool's errand. The other two wielders that we know are the Sword Saint and Nie Wuxing, both highly experienced swordsmen with skills greatly surpassing ours. I suggest we treat the pair the same.

    Wuxiang Qiankun would be extremely easy to recognize if we copy techniques that are meant to be used in a pair all by ourselves. The outside of the inn is not the best place for such a display. Showing our hand it to Bai Jiutian is not exactly the same as showing it to the rest of the world.

    Yunzi, Armaiti and Yifang are all appropriate choices for the occasion. I favor Yunzi over the other two for obvious reasons. :)

    B6.

    Voting C - 8 versus 2.

    It's past time to stop messing around with people who are trying to kill us.


    edit:

    OK, flopping to B6

    Aye, we've been needing that int increase.

    A1 seems like a bad idea because Jing alone would still try to take on two swordmasters with legendary swords who specialize in teamwork. I don't think we can win a 1v2 against opponents of this caliber just because we have Wuxiang Qiankun.

    So, I think we should duo with our best sword fighters, meaning either Yifang or Song Lingshu. Going with B3 right now. Yifang has the right combination of skill and a lack of hostile intent for this fight. Plus she knows our sword style and we're very familiar with Emei swordplay, so we should work well together. This whole encounter seems like the golden opportunity for Yifang to demonstrate her massive sword skills, to be honest.

    Uh, tropic, I'm worried about C. They're not wholehearted in killing us right now, but if we pick C they will be. Some of our crew can get killed if they try to mob the couple.

    Also, treave, I motion we encourage Cao'er and Qilin to pool their efforts on making a convincing prosthetic eye. Clearly we're a bit too recognizable just by being one-eyed. Also, did Yifang learn our two improvements to our self-taught style?

    Wouldn't be complete before the LP is over, so it doesn't matter to you. Besides, that missing eye needs to have at least a bit of a drawback.

    Yeah, Yifang has picked up everything you have. She's a fast learner.

    Well, we want to give these folks a fair fight, so we're being nice by not unleashing the power of Xuezi upon them.

    I'm nitpicking a little bit here, but I'm sure that the power of the Great Sword wielders varies considerably. The Saint is obviously #1, but I suspect that we might actually be superior to Nie Wuxing now. The man is a coward and he seems to be the sort who gets complacent in his skills, so unlike BJ, I don't think he's progressed all that much over the past couple of years. Of course, I could be completely wrong if it turns out that he's had access to some techniques from one of the Three Manuals.

    In any case, it would indeed be pretty stupid to fight these guys on our own and without the legendary technique that we've spent almost all of our free time training on.

    That was from XI, X gave us the standard Wuxiang Qiankun level up that allowed us to mimic people at our own level of inner strength. Xuezi's guided meditation gave us that +1 INT, not Jing's solo meditation. At least, I think that's how it worked out.

    Nie Wuxing is a coward, but I think his sword skills are real.

    I thought -2 Per was the drawback. I notice you got rid of the entire eye in the Fire Temple so we couldn't get Cao'er to restore it anyway.

    Gentlemen, I think B3 is the way to go now. She understands our sword style best, so she should team with us.

    The outcome of this of course depends entirely on whether their inner strength is greater than ours. Living away as hermits generally means a whole bunch of time meditating. So maybe.

    Eh, not too much of a drawback nowadays since that's compensated for by Reikan as well as neigong boosts. It is almost a non-factor now.

    And the entire eye was already removed more than two years before you reached the Fire Temple to prevent it from getting infected and rotting in your eye socket.

    Eh, we'd still be 2 Per higher otherwise. That's still quite a difference in perception.

    Huh. Alright then.

    I'm not concerned about whether we can work well with Yunzi. My concern is that this is a sword fight and Yunzi is only 6 skill with the sword. Yifang is obviously the best sword fighter here. Plus, I'm not convinced we should face these two with hostile intent like Yunzi is intending.

    Ah, but I might not have given out the opportunity for as many perception boosts otherwise. :lol:

    Point taken. Our Reikan has effectively become a permanent +3 to perception now too.

    Yeah, and Jing is at Sword 7, nothing to brag about when compared to a lifelong swordsman couple. However, Yunzi is at Unarmed 8, had Rob Halford's 'loldead' move and has three supplementary skills at good levels. She's just a better choice here.

    Meh, I'll go with B6 just because it sounds romantic.

    C and A1 also sound nice but I don't think they'll go just as planned.

    B6>B3>B7>A1>C

    Baltika9, Jing has some solid sword techniques though. Kenjutsu is at rank 8. Self-taught style has some new high-power Huashan moves. Nine Shadows Imprisonment Sword is a legendary technique. As for Yifang, she is completely loaded in sword moves with her Guihe Formation/Qingcheng Stab/Jing-style Sword/Qingzi Sword. No seriously, I want to see Yifang fight.

    Also, lets ask treave. What are Yunzi's sword techniques? And what level are Yifang's techniques?

    I'm pretty sure that if they're after our life, this isn't necessarily a sword fight. Anything goes, whips, fists and bored included.

    There's a Tujue-style basic fencing technique and Haurvatat's water-themed flowing swordplay. The latter is not mastered yet.

    Yifang has mastered all of her Emei techniques and is already highly proficient with the Qingzi Sword.

    I don't think they're completely serious about killing us though. And I'm pretty sure we want to make a good impression on them, considering the Ten Swords summit, unless you really think we can kill them now.

    Uh. What? They ate totally after our head, as in trying to kill us. They're just being polite about it.
