    1st test is qinggong right? Second might be stealth (or fighting). 3 and 4 are straight up combat. We might be able to pull this off.

    I really think its better to break out our losses and say fareweel to thee Xixuan. Jing already did a lot for him by interceding on his behalf. Sunken costs fallacy, bros, sunken costs fallacy. Sneaking on the library is the dickish thing to do, we did not prove ourselves worthy of the power, Shaolin does not own Jing anything and they treated us very fairly. These guys are harsh on rules, but fair.

    Also, with Xuxian out of the game, the Zhang clan is going to redouble their efforts to get at Jing, as per The Plan (distract Zhang clan to allow Chief Jiang to do his thing).

    I must thank Absinthe for this: without his terrible, tl;dr arguments that led to people flopping to B, this glorious option would never have opened up. I am in your debt, good sir. I await many long debates on the minutiae of technique that have fuck-all to do with anything in the future. :salute:

    I totally can respect this. But holy shit, this gauntlet sounds awesome and there's only one word that can describe the sort of person that can overcome an impossible trial: LEGEND.

    The Gauntlet is too tempting. It suits Xu Jing perfectly. So, I'm-a (hurr-hurr) voting for that.

    treave, is there any significance of numerology in Buddhist or Shaolin monk tradition?

    The number nine seems very important to them for some reason. The Abbot has nine dots burnt into his forehead, and all of the challenges are organized in multiples of 9 as well. Also, each subsequent challenge is divided by two. I'm just curious as to what it means.

    There probably is, but I don't know what exactly. It may be more of a Chinese thing than Buddhism per se. Sounds cool though, and is a recurring theme in many Chinese writings e.g. 36 Strategems, 72 Transformations.

    4 roots of 9 = 12, thats what it means :D

    But in reality 9 sounds like 'long lasting' in chineese (so a wedding on the 9th would be lucky) also it is THE number of the EMPRAH. Also it simbolizes harmony.

    Wait we will say when start next set? After one set we can drain people we faced to start each set fresh.

    They'll have a big stick of incense burning. You progress at your own pace as long as you complete by the time the incense burns out.

    It would truly be a boring story without us overcoming overwhelming odds like the 100 man battle or the fire temple event

    Jumping to A bandwagon.

    This looks it needs lot of endurance..Which we don't have, even with our neigong vampirism...Somekind of defensive technique would also been nice.

    But what the hell, SWORDS +1 AND YOOOOLOTIGERING.

    Well we don't need to kill the monks...

    But we can suck them dry. I think that's going to be the key to success.

    Even if we dont clear whole challenge i expect we will impress them quite.

    Course if any part of challenge involved grappling homosexual monks, we wouldnt be so yolo... or mby we would hit 20 votes in hour.

    Never said suck them dry, but they are like health and mana restoration thingies in some games. So i guess we will suck them for bit. It sounds so wrong... yet so in character. ;)

    Oh we can troll them, and maybe if they've not gotten around to it, CHINA MUST INVENT CHEERLEADERS.

    As a diversion, of course.

    7 cute girls in reviling clothes with pompons? I guess we will hit 100 with young monks in no time, Iron Shaft would be proud.

    What an unexpected outcome.

    Don't worry, bros, with the power of our awesome Shouwang Leipo Palms we'll totes show those elder warrior mannequins!

    Voting A.

    Might I remind you, dear Nevill, that the Shouwang Leipo Palms is the most powerful palm technique in the Eight Sects? Because it is!
