    I guess they are afraid the protagonist may end up in an 'undesirable' time period

    Ahh! I've been reading this novel for the past 2 weeks! Can't believe I'm able to read 5 years worth of effort. Really appreciate all the translators work! Else I wouldn't be about to read this epic piece. :].

    I also enjoyed all the discussion here too!

    I have been reading this too and it ended in such an interesting place. The novel is closer to the end I suppose and it would be so good if some kind soul picks the translation up.

    ^ I think Jean might have already translated some parts, but because her baby is due soon; she needs rest ^_^.

    On the other hand, I was using the translating machine and....it was horrible lol! So I just go read GL's "A Happy Hero" instead (:.

    I hope, by 'horrible' you meant the "translation" and not that there are more deaths on XSL's side!

    I too was waiting for the completion of this story, and google translate was horrible, but bing translator was better, but still bad. Finally I used NJStar Chinese Pen and used the Text to Speech tool (I can't read Chinese) and I finished the story by listening to it for several hours total. Good ending.. :-)

    ^ Aw! Lucky you. Lol. I'm not Chinese, so I can't read or understand when spoken to D:

    Related note:
    My guess is that, Shaolong will end up meeting with Dan Meimei somehow and get her to help him. He always find an possible route out of an impossible ones anyway!

    Brief spoiler:
    click to show/hide spoilers
    In short, he does meet Dan Meimei, now empress, & also Shan Rou, who found a husband which can impregnate her with kids, Feng Fei and briefly ShiSuiFang... He duels with tao shu dao, #1 swordsman, and meets lui bu wei in Qi, & his cohorts, and even his friends are plotting against him,... He eventually returns back to Qin and xiao pan + Li Si now wants to get rid of him, because he's the "only" one who can de-throne him with the secrets he know. They kill Lu Bu Wei, & xiao pan kill Lo Ai & his sons and replaces his mother w/ a fake, but kills the "real" mother. XSL run away and xiao pan lets him go when he sees his mother's memorial plaque in a room.

    Was a little worried about the ending [esp after watching snippets from Louis Koo's version! The Yi Yanran mixed Qin Qing is dreadful!]

    I don't mind spoilers at all, so thank you for the brief summary, szfong. I still want to read to the end. It's gonna be an epic journey to a climatic conclusion.

    The pugilist stared blankly towards the horizon
    Surrounded by angry birds salivating with murderous intent
    Thundering his shouts in the background of lightning strikes
    He raised his dragon sword, made entirely of dragon bones
    He smiled in the midst of gently falling feathers
    The dogs are gnawing away the rolling birds' head.


    .......this is how bored I am right now!! I need my fix! Please continue with the translation.....please, please, please!
