Amazingly, there have been no new posts here at the Wuxia Fiction Forum in the past two days. Other than times when SPCNET in general was down, I don't think that's ever happened in SPCNET history. What is the world coming to? Are we finally growing weary with wuxia?
Anyway, to break the ice: the 9 Yum Jen Ging was the most coveted martial art of the L/ROCH era. Each of the Greats believed that mastering this manual's martial arts would put him head and shoulders above his rivals, and even Central Divinity Wong Chung Yeung, the greatest of the Greats, acknowledged that the 9 Yum Jen Ging was superior to his or any of the other Greats' native martial arts.
That being said, if all five original LOCH Greats were to pool their knowledge into one single book, would that book's overall martial arts value surpass that of the 9 Yum Jen Ging? If you were a young martial artist and you were given a choice between possessing a book that featured all of the Greats' native skills or just the 9 Yum Jen Ging, which would you pick?
