    ADDENDUM to the retirement rule: when retirement is effective, every contestant that shares the lowest score will retire, even if it means half of the pool.

    Before I head off to sleep, I present to you, the first advertisement on Shi Potian of Ode to Gallantry.

    What is special about Shi Potian? He is the only Jin Yong protagonist to single-handedly defeat the next 2 best warriors of the era, the 2 lords of Gallant Island. To appreciate Shi Potian's achievement, we need to compare him with the other main characters, and I would like to quote Laviathan:

    Can Xiao Feng defeat Sweeper Monk and Tianshan Tonglao combined? No

    Can Yang Guo beat both Guo Jing and Golden Wheel Monk? No

    Can Linghu Chong take on Dongfang Bubai and Abbot Fangzheng together? No

    Can Yuan Chengzhi kill Mu Renqing and Priest Yuzhenzi at the same time? No

    Can Chen Jialuo best Yuan Shixiao and Shaolin monk Tianhong? No

    These are just examples to describe how exceptional Shi Potian is in the Jin Yong universe.

    But how good are the two Lords of Gallant Island? We don't know. We only know that their two disciples Zhang San and Li Si are invincible at the Mainland, and during the era of Ode to Gallantry, only Zhang San and Li Si are known to have mastered the skill of "Sealing Acupoints without physical contact" (lingkong dianxue). In DGSD, only people of Emperor Duan Zhengming's level or higher are able to perform such a feat. Yet Zhang San and Li Si are just two out of many students of Gallant Island. So, let's say that the Two Lords of Gallant Island are good enough to be the teachers of Emperor Duan Zhengming of DGSD.


    But the Two Lords could not even scratch Shi Potian.

    What's with the everyone ganging up on Night Emperor?

    The worship continues: Dongfang Bubai's glorious battle is an excellent showcase of his/her abilities - translation courtesy of bliss.

    东方不败的武功之高,当真不可思议。

    Dongfang Bubai's speed was simply unimaginable. In that flash of an instant, he managed to prick Lingwu Chong's face, and then contract his arm to block Lingwu Chong's sword strike with his needle right afterwards. Luckily that strike from Lingwu Chong was incredibly swift as well, it forced his opponent to draw up a defense, coupled with the fact that Dongfang Bubai was quite riled up and angry, the needle just slightly missed its mark, the Renzhong point on Lingwu Chong's face. The needle in Dongfang Bubai's hand was no longer than an inch, light enough to be blown away by the wind, light enough to float on water, yet he was able to parry Lingwu Chong's sword head-on with it. Dongfang Bubai's martial arts level was definitely beyond comprehension. Lingwu Chong was startled immensely, he knew that today he had run into a foe of unimaginable power. He knew that if he gave his opponent the leisure of the initiative, his life would be in grave danger.
