    Really looking forward for the chapter 2 to be out, wandering whether xsl will be in action or not. But think he should will not as he will be easily recognized if he display his sword skill.

    Thumbs up

    I am running out of patience with this Zhao Ya. Not worth an ounce of sympathy.

    And, this is the first time I read XSL got exhausted with only one woman. She is really a 'learned' lady.


    I don't see how 'Dong Kuang' can win sword battle with Li Yuan without the Mozi swordplay style. I would like to see how DK outsmart Li Yuan, not by outfighting him.

    That's a really good translation, Slyphiad. Thanks for the long update.

    heh, not to burst your bubbles, but although slyphiad can translate fast, I can't edit as quickly, especially now I'm busy with preparing for a biz trip next week.

    By the way, I hope you don't mind, I made pdf files out of your translations. I just found out about this website, and creating the pdf makes it a lot easier for me to read. If anyone would like a copy, I can send it to you. It seems, the attachment is too large for this forum. (I divided the pdf files by book #)
    Wow Thanks for sharing Beemon. !

    This 'saga' is one of my favorite in step into the past. So currently I'm re-reading it again and translating. That's why it goes kinda fast. Also, I did translate it before but I lost it coz of pc breakdown.

    I'm up to chpt 4 pg 1. Jean's up to halfway through chpt 2. I'm still waiting for Jean to finish editting before I put it up here. So be patient guys!! I'm not native chinese like Jean so sometimes it's hard to put to word from what i read in chinese to english. Maybe Jean's having a hard time editting my stuff... Hahaha...

    So can i get a vote in how u prefer us to put in the translation? Per chpt or as we go along... so every time we finish few pages we'll post it up for u guys.

    If I get to vote, I too would like more frequent updates so I don't forget the characters and what is going on. Even if the update is short

    I prefer short but frequent. Btw, how short is this "short"? I consider Jean's short as medium.

    Thanks to slyphiad and Jean once again for continuing this story.

    Frankly, seeing any SITP update is clearly the highlight of my week day as this is something I can savor over a short break. But as always, whatever the translator feels most comfortable with!
