    Default Who should be the *new* IMPORTANT CELEBRITY OF THE MONTH?

    As you all have noticed, this August's theme was undoubtedly PEAK OF PERFECTION IN SWORDPLAY, the signature line of SWORD GOD Zhuo Bufan.

    Well, August came and went... SWORD GOD Zhuo Bufan should have been super delighted in his novel-imaginary grave. Now we step into a new month. I propose that we take this opportunity each month to RECOGNIZE some truly obscure folks in the world of wuxia: characters that no one typically cares about, that nobody ever really talks about... but sort of add a delicate delight to the story.

    To quality for IMPORTANT CELEBRITY OF THE MONTH (in Mandarin: Da Ren Wu), the character must be relatively unknown to the readers AND to the wuxia world. His/her appearances in the novel should be brief. He/she should not have many revered fans among the readers. And he/she should not have been subject of many discussions. Basically, must be an ultra unpopular, little-known person.

    I have a proposal for September:

    1. The "Fast Sabre" clown from DGSD. The guy has really reached the peak of perfection in timing. this is what happened: Xiao Feng was launching an assault on one of the guys at Juxian Zhuang. 2 Xuan generation monks launch their own attack to neutralize Xiao Feng's attack. Just when the 2 forces were about to clash, "Fast Sabre" decides to fall from above and join the fun. He was up there the whole time, but I guess he felt ignored or something, so he fell from the sky at just the right time. Result: he gets creamed in the middle of the 2 crushing forces and dies a horrible (but much enjoyable) death.

    How about Duan Tian De (That guy that killed Guo Jing Father)...

    If he was not in the story, Condor Heroes would never have happened.

    The problem with Kuai Dao Qi Liu is that he did not have a single word of dialogue in the novel.

    We should at least choose people with speaking lines!

    Monke Khan's horse, who was supposed to be faster than the little red horse.
    Burying his Dugu 9 Jian manual under an epitaph, Dugu Qiubai felt he has left his legacy for the next generation. He then moved to Shaolin to study Buddhism, sweep floors and tap elite fighters.

    PJ,

    Although we held the Month of SWORD GOD Zhuo Bufan festival, it has sadly failed to acheive its aim.

    No one else seems to be discussing or talking about him, other then smart-alec remarks. No body even seems to care about the translation of his appearances in the book (the real bits at Ling Jiu Gong, not the fan-fic from you!).

    I say we _CONTINUE_ with the Festival of SWORD GOD Zhuo Bufan until he receives due credit from the forum!

    One month and still not much interest in Zhuo Bufan. It shows that people are not interested him. I doubt prolonging the festival will make any more difference unless u do some serieous promoting instead of making him look like a joke.

    I've read the translation. He seems quite powerful. I would really like to know what happened to him and Xu Zhu. But the good effect of the serious translation was spoiled by the silly fanfics. Those silly fanfics makes Zhuo Bufan into a joke and also confuses readers on which part is true and which part is fanfic. I gave up reading that thread after reading a couple of the silly fanfics. The smart-alec remarks and the constant mentioning of the 'peak of perfection' makes him even more of a joke. I don't think many people take him seriously now.

    Simple. The promoters aren't taking him that seriously either. They were out there to portray him as a joke, weren't they?

    *stands up in a dangerous manner*

    Does anyone else believe that Sword God Zhuo Bufan, who has reached the peak of perfection in swordplay after 30 years of isolated training, is a joke?

    of course he isn't a joke....compared to the society but he is a joke in comparision to someone like..... Li Qui Sui!

    As for who should be the next celebrity, I feel that Zhuo Bu Fan should be replaced by the 8 Armed Swordsman- Fang Dongbai! He has reached the peak of perfection in the SPEED aspects of swordplay.
