    Saying the obvious.

    Which is why this thread came about. Exploring the "lovable" side of characters as if we've never seen them before. The part where Elder Xu experienced a force that *resembles* a lightning strike made him appear, er-hem, lovable. This whole stretch of redundant "debate" came about mainly because I disagree with HR's "Elder-Xu-memory-about-he-was-once-struck-by-lightning" theory.

    I seriously doubt all of Mike Tyson's opponents were really hit by trucks, or that his blows reminded them of any traffic accidents they may have faced before.

    I was just responding to whoever made that connection.

    I say we leave it there...

    2 more candidates:
    Madam Yue who is described to have reached the level of perfection in energy manipulate.
    Yu Lianzhou who is described to have reached the perfection in Taiji swordsmanship.
    Yang Guo & Zhou Botong said in Chapters 6, 11 & 25 of ROCH:
    - 这道姑也算得美了,只是还不及桃花岛郭伯母,更加不及我姑姑。
    - 原来郭伯母竟是这般美貌,小时候我却不觉得。
    - 龙姑娘,我瞧你品貌才智,和那小黄蓉不相上下,武功也跟她差不离。

    Yelu Jin was pretty good at sucking up to people, although not good enough to save him and his father from execution. Does his brother also qualify for ELOC?

    HAPPY IRISH BEER DAY. Here is an updated list of all nominees. If I have missed anyone please remind me. Also feel free to submit more ELOC candidates for this game. Regarding the absence of SWORD GOD, see my statement at the bottom.

    -NIGHT EMPEROR Ye Di
    -Taoist "The presence of hundreds of angry experts do not threaten me in the slightest" Buping
    -Feng "Buping" Buping
    -Mr. Mo "Exquisite Slicing of Wine Cups" Da
    -Priest "COMBOS: Countering Opponent's Moves Before Opponent Strikes" Wuchen
    -IMPARTIAL JUDGE Shan "Single Aligned" Zheng
    -Zhao "Double Crooked" Qiansun
    -Elder Xu Chongxiao (sometimes known as THUNDERGOD)
    -FAST SABRE Qi "Pry loose my sabre from the ceiling, damn it" Liu
    -An "there's nothing interesting about me" Fengri
    -Shangguan "I fight with DFBB even though I have no chance!" Yun
    -Holy Dragon Sect Leader Hong "An island means more than a dynasty to me" Antong
    -Golden Wheel Monk's nameless first disciple
    -Reverend "SPEED + ENLIGHTENMENT + COMBOS" Kongjian
    -Elder "Hair Removal By a Simple Touch" Kurong
    -Jie "I kickass with finger writing on wood" Feng
    -MIGHTY SABRE Qin Hongmian aka You Guke
    -VICE PRESIDENT Ma Dayuan
    -"The Premier Monster of Pearl Cliff" Zhuya Daguai
    -Grandfather "Lift/Endure thousands of pounds of weight" Tan
    -Zen Master Chengguan/Dengguan

    NOMINATIONS BY OTHERS (please come up with interesting titles):

    Chang Yuchun
    Lantianhe
    Cui Zhifang
    Zhu Cong
    Huang Yaoshi's wife Feng Heng
    Guo "Mamma's boy" Polu
    Lu "I suck, I mean... Stepping up to challenges despite mediocre abilities" Youjiao
    Zhu "Umm, who?" Baokun
    Sicong "awesome thief" Zhaixing
    Hong "another poor little girl" Lingbo
    Lu Dayou
    Madam "state of divinity in energy manipulation" Yue
    Yu "peak of perfection in EVERYTHING" Lianzhou
    Yelu Jin

    p.s. Personally, I think SWORD GOD should not be included any more. He has surpassed the stage of ELOC. His name is one of the best known in the community now, thanks to ELOC. We want to give more underexposed contenders a chance. SWORD GOD has been the first graduate of the ELOC Academy. Hopefully after this game, more ELOC candidates will join SWORD GOD as alumni of this meaningful institution.

    Cui Zhifang - the man who sent Yang Guo to the Ancient Tomb, then disappears from the story. Are there any other characters who have played such an important part in the main plot, but remain so little known?

    pannonian, you have cast the spotlight on PLOT ELEVATOR Cui Zhifang. He will be a mandatory contestant of this ELOC edition of Survivor Game.

    As for your question, I think the only other completely unknown person on the list who can match Cui Zhifang's contribution to the plot, would be VICE PRESIDENT Ma Dayuan. That guy caused a storm of turmoil, alright.

    Here's another addition to the list. Proving that not only main characters, but also characters never seen before and never seen again, can learn powerful martial arts from falling off cliffs, I present Lan Tianhe.

    This manís name was Lan Tianhe, a Miao from Guizhou. When he was young, Tianhe went gathering herbs in the mountainous area of Sichuan province. There he slipped and fell down a ravine, and was rescued by a skilled martial artist.

    THE GAME IS READY TO BEGIN after the long wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Alright people, I know you're excited. Here's a quick, painless explanation of how it's gonna work. It's gonna be a little different, but nothing earth-shattering.

    The first round will be a REVERSE ELIMINATION stage. In the past, towards the end of game when we have very few contestants left standing, we sometimes initiate the +1/-3 rule. Well, this time we're gonna do that right off the bat. We have more contestants than the game can normally cope with, so the REVERSE ELIM stage will take care of that. Then, after we have the desired amount of candidates remaining, the game will resume with normal +1/-1 voting.

    The next post will have the rules.

    Madam Yue

    The official rules are:

    1. VERY IMPORTANT: The first round is one of REVERSE RAPID ELIMINATION. The objective for this round is to eliminate the contestants that you think will bear no chance of competing, so as to spare them of an embarrassment a la Elder Kurong (defeated by Murong Longcheng), Li Qiushui (defeated by Murong Longcheng), and He Zudao (defeated by Dugu Qiubai) in the 1:1 MYSTERIOUS PERSONALITY survivor game.

    2. Each ELOC starts at 15 points. Either add OR subtract a point for a chosen contestant.

    3. The first round will utilize a voting scheme of +1/-3. Subsequent rounds will use +1/-1.

    4. You may vote once every 4 turns OR every 30 minutes, whichever comes first; this means that unless 30 minutes have passed since your last vote, you must wait until at least 3 others have voted before you vote again.

    5. Due to the high volume of contestants, For each voting turn you may cast ONE -or- TWO votes. To cast a single vote, You may either add (+) or subtract (-) a point from one contestant. To cast two votes, one vote must be a (+) and the other must be a (-).

    6. To facilitate the tracking of scores, please cut and paste both candidates and their scores when you vote.

    WINNER FORECASTING is back!

    You have the option to predict which 20 ELOC will move on to the next round. The winner of the Forecasting will be decided based on the # of contestants guessed correctly. In case of ties, all Forecasting winners earn equal prize, which is the privilege of having DOUBLE VOTING POWER (which means you can vote +2/-2 instead of +1/-1).

    VERY IMPORTANT: In order to participate in the Forecasting program, You must predict submit your Forecast no later than before the 3rd candidate elimination.
