    B5 or B8, I can't decide which. I'll vote properly following more DISCUSS!!! I guess. It's pretty great to meet up with our bro here... does this mean that if we'd gone off to Wudang he wouldn't have been there at the time?

    Edit: treave, do we know which of our companions are most eager to go through this gauntlet with us if at all? If Yunzi would like to partner up with us I'll take her on, otherwise I think I'll try having a team with Guo Fu. There again, now that he's a father maybe he shouldn't be invited to something so lethal... maybe I should go with Xuezi. :lol:

    Ranking of eagerness, from most to least:

    Yunzi > Qilin > Lingshu > Cao'er > Armaiti > Guo Fu > Yifang >>>>>>>> Xuezi

    After reading the update I have only one thing to say.

    Even Guo Fu has a beard now.

    Oh, and I would probably take Yunzi with us, but how would Shaolin respond to the participation of the Holy Maiden? What does Xuzhan think about it, treave? Does he even know?

    Edit: I hate T9.

    B5 - Yunzi deserves a little fun and we have to sway no 3 to our side, our bed side.

    Guo Fu might fail on the first trial, he is kind of huge. But then again he can golden vest those swords and what not untill they break...

    It would probably be wise to take a partner into this but only if they can hold their own.

    So B 1-4 and 7 are out, we need someone at Jing's level here.

    Yunzi is fast enough to keep up, Guo Fu is tough enough to push through and Armaiti is probably somewhere in between and is confident in her ability to fight off groups.

    Politically Yunzi would be the best pick as the Temple Lord and Maiden gaining honourary membership with the Shaolin and their respect would help us most in the long run.

    Yunzi also has a very wide base to draw from given her training with all the ASs

    She also wants to do this the most and that will probably count for something.

    I can think of good reasons to take the other two as well but it would be most fitting to take Yunzi.

    Guo Fu is a physical specimen, fast, strong, and huge. He would do well but it is not really his place to get involved. He does not really gain anything here and he has a family to think about, I would prefer if we did not drag him into this and risk his life.

    Armaiti might be useful but given the variety of challenges I would prefer Yunzi's broader if less refined skillset.

    So...

    B5

    The Temple Lord and the Holy Maiden shall run the Shaolin Gauntlet... I like the sound of that...

    He doesn't recognize her, but Guo Fu did. Since most of the Shaolin monks have had it forcefully drilled into them an ingrained instinct to fight their desires, reject women and safeguard their chastity, just assume they won't realize. To most of them one beautiful woman is the same as another; i.e. they won't observe her long enough to notice.

    Once the fighting starts, however, any senior monks who were at Heihu might figure it out, but they won't let it stop the trial even if they do. Expect questions afterwards, though.

    Also, I forgot to write this in (adding it into the update now), but you can drop out at any time. Your partner can also quit before you do. Of course, if you forcefully bring Xuezi along to troll her you'll be strapping her to your back so she's in for the long haul.

    Yeah, let's go for B5, I'm convinced.

    The spirit counts for half of the victory. I guess Yunzi is the obvious pick here.

    B5.

    Regardless of any bandwagoning, the update probably won't appear until after the weekend.

    Hmm. Bro Fu and Xuxhan don't seem to mind our murders. I guess we're cool with them.

    Also...

    I'm guessing that this will be a choice in the future? That's going to be a tough one... I hope we have the chance to talk to them soon, even if only through pigeon.

    Hmmm. Three choices.


    - Going alone:

    Wins most respect from shaolin bros
    Pushes Xu Jing to limits, perhaps even beyound.
    Most badass way to complete this challenge.
    Most dangerous to use personally


    - Going with Yunzi:

    Waifu points
    Romatic as hell, because Firelord and Holy maiden completes challenge together.
    Fighting parts get easier since there are two of us.
    Yunzi's identity will probably be discovered.


    - Going with BroGuo

    We get a tank to our classcannon
    it's not nice to risk father of young child.

    They remember it, this just isn't the time to bring up things like murder (nor do they really want to).

    Not in front of Guo's kid.

    If you kill anyone during this trial rest assured that you will not be cool with any of them.

    If so then taking a second person will help not killing anyone.

    Not really, no. They might end up killing someone instead.

    If Xu Jing notices that Yunzi is giving over too much to bloodlust in a fight, would he be willing to stop her by command/bulging muscles to prevent her from possibly killing someone?

    Note. It might also be possible that Yunzi could die. It would make for a deeply tragic story, no?

    Better Yunzi (hell better Jing) dies than Bro Fu. That would be a tragedy. There are always more wives but there is only one Bro Fu!
