    I don't know, but judging from the angry faces, it's three times worse than dying.

    Hmmm, I'd bet the original Luocha Tablet is back with those goons (bluebeard and Co.) who sent LXF out. This whole thing is probably just a decoy to get the 3 old buggers off their back or something. Typical GL.
    Its BIxie Jianfa Gawdammit you guys!!!!

    To the rest of the faithful readers , don't worry guys, as I said earlier, I won't quit just because only a handful of you are following the story. I will try my best to finish it for our sake. Thank you for your support, I appreciate it. Now continue with the story ... (sorry, been rather busy lately)
    -------------------------------

    The frigid wind, dark clouds and murky sky, snow covered road, a solitary woman riding a thin and weak little donkey, with a faint cold and lonely sound of Qiang flute [vertical flute used by the Qiang – an ethnic group of Chinese people] coming from a distance, and a large temple looming silently like a dark cloud.

    She was at the ends of the earth, but her heart was even farther, at the outer space [Translator’s note: ends of the earth – ‘tian ya’, outer space – ‘tian wai’].

    “A lonely life, an endless journey, gazing into the infinite road toward the horizon, where is the way back home …?”

    She travelled very slowly. Since she did not know where the way back home was, why should she hasten on her journey?

    Suddenly from the fork of the road a large horse-drawn carriage came near. The driver was a large man wearing a fur cap on his head, with a long whip in his hand. When the carriage caught up with her, the man unexpectedly smiled to her.

    And she smiled back.

    What harm would a little smile between two travelers while journeying together at the ends of the earth and meeting each other by chance be, although they were not acquainted with each other?

    Suddenly the man driving the carriage asked, “Miss, are you or are you not cold?”

    Chen Jingjing: “Cold.”

    The man driving the carriage: “You won’t be cold if you sit inside the carriage!”

    Chen Jingjing: “I know!”

    The man driving the carriage: “Then why haven’t you boarded the carriage?”

    Chen Jingjing thought for a moment then slowly dismounted the donkey. The carriage had also stopped -- Since she dared to go down even a deep fryer, why not board a carriage?

    Seeing she boarded the carriage, the driver suddenly lashed his whip at the donkey’s behind.

    Feeling the pain, the donkey fled like an arrow, leaving behind the desolate land.

    A smile appeared at the corner of the driver’s mouth. Leisurely he hummed a tune, a folk song: “In the Hei Wu La by the Song River there was a beautiful and tender girl; from among a million of rich families she chose me. I embraced her by the waist, not because of my family’s riches, but because she is so tender!”

    The song was melodious; it seemed to bring a joyous rhythm to the bland snow and ice covered road.

    Afterwards, the carriage travelled far away.

    This Hei Wu La was not the Hei Wu La by the Song River.

    The Hei Wu La by the Song River was a town by the Song Hua River, a big river.

    This Hei Wu La was not a big town, but on this extremely cold and desolate place in the middle of nowhere, it cannot be considered too small either.

    More than two hours later, the large horse-drawn carriage had reached Hei Wu La. After going through two large streets, it turned into a small alley and stopped in front of a small hut.

    The man driving the carriage turned his head around and smiled, “We have arrived at my house. Would Miss care to come in and sit down?”

    It was not until half a day later that Chen Jingjing’s unenthusiastic voice replied from inside the carriage, “Since I am already here, there is no harm for me to come in and sit down.”

    She had just got out of the carriage when the shabby wooden door opened with a creaking noise and a foolish looking and filthy boy stood at the threshold, looking at her with a grin and giggle on his face.

    Chen Jingjing’s face did not show any emotion. She patted the dust from her clothes, and then slowly walked in.

    Inside the door was a very crude small living room, situated at the middle of the wall there was an offering table with an idol of the God of Wealth, holding a gold ingot in his hand. There was another leafed door toward the back, where a cotton cloth curtain was hung; it was faded blue in color from too much washing. There was a large red ‘happiness’ character made of paper pasted above the opening. Whoever entered this room would be able to see immediately that the owner of this place must be a poor peasant who dreamed about gaining sudden wealth all day long.

    One poor peasant, one filthy kid, a broken down house with two, maybe three, unstable rooms, which felt like it was ready to fall down to the east and lean to the west anytime, four, maybe five, broken down and tattered wooden furniture, the ‘happiness’ character above the door, which, whoever sees it would not be able to say that it was pleasing to the eyes, and the idol of the God of Wealth on the wall, which looked more like a newly rich person.

    Actually, it was the kind of place where Chen Jingjing would not stay even for a moment; she liked tidiness, she liked elegant furniture, but unexpectedly, this time she did not look like she was about to leave soon.

    Could it be that she had nowhere else to go?

    The poor kid was still looking at her with smile on his face; her face still did not show any emotion. She looked around the room; unexpectedly she then raised the faded blue cotton curtain and entered other people’s bedroom.

    Naturally, there would be a bed in a bedroom. The bed was unexpectedly very big; moreover, it looked brand new. The mattress and the quilt also looked brand new, not only that, it was also exquisitely embroidered with expensive yarn in the shape of four big scarlet flowers and a pair of mandarin ducks playing on the water.

    Behind the bed piled four, five brand new chests made of camphor-wood, and a dressing table with a water chestnut-shaped mirror. The wall all around was white-washed that the room felt like a snowy cave. Apparently, it was a newly-wed couple’s bridal chamber.

    Chen Jingjing frowned, her eyes revealed a disgusted look; but when her gaze fell on those camphor-wood chests, her eyes immediately shone.

    And then she did the most unthinkable thing: she jumped into somebody else’s bed, and then she took a string of keys from her bosom and opened up the large padlock on somebody else’s camphor-wood chest.

    Suddenly, a dazzling golden ray burst out from the camphor-wood chest, for surprisingly, the chest was full of ingots of pure gold [orig. ‘yuan bao’ – gold ingots in the shape of a boat].

    The golden ray also shone on her face, the face that revealed a smile for the very first time. She ran the tip of her finger gently on the row after row of neatly stacked golden ingots, just like a mother gently caressed her newborn baby.

    To gain this gold was not an easy matter at all, it was a lot more difficult than for a mother giving birth to a child.

    But right now all hardship and misery had passed, so she sighed with contentment. When she looked up, she saw the man driving the carriage has just entered the room. He smiled and said, “What do you think of my play acting?”

    I am also following this translation eagerly. The story is very interesting. I wish there would be more martial arts action though.

    Nice meeting you here too Icy. How long has it been since the conclusion of RPG2? two years? It's still the only one that ever got finished.

    I've been lurking around the forum, enjoying the various translations.

    Ok! I'll put in my vote.

    Since it is only 4 hours LXF rested, he is not likely to make a fake tablet for CHUCHU to steal. I guess when he first found it, he already can tell it is a fake one already. The 4 hours is probably a plan that he has that needs 4 hours to execute so he sleeps those hours.

    The tablet can only be @ 2 possible places. First, Blue Beard still has it. He throws everyone off to a wild goose chase while he has the original one and he plans to be the head of DEMON CULT so no one can kill him anymore. It is not only his way of surviving but also be richer and more powerful. While everyone is out far far away, he makes his way for the inauguration ceremony. When he first receive the tablet, he had a fake one made immediately and that's the one Li Xia stole.

    Second is Chen Jing Jing and Li Shentong has it. Since Leng Honger, Tang Keqing, Li Xia and the Old Goat are all dead, the 2 pax in the carriage and the broken down hut has to be the 2 of them. The boy can even be the one who can make all sorts of noises with his mouth to trick LXF @ the start. They have the gold already but are ambitious to even head the Demon Cult as well. Killing 2 birds with one stone. They are probably closer to Li Xia and know the location of the real Tablet. The fake tablet is made by Li Xia and used to trick Leng Honger and also LXF.

    If it is anything else, then I'm blown away by the storyline. I bet it is with Blue Beard because to him it is life and death versus the other 2 who are just greedy as*ho*es.

    Default Chapter 8 – Part 4

    You guys are good! But wait ... there are more twist and turn. Stay tuned! Single Whip, Gu Long's fights are always short ...
    ----------------------------------------------

    Chen Jingjing smiled sweetly, “Good, it was very good, truly deserving the title ‘Number One Child Prodigy in the World’.”

    The man driving the carriage exploded in laughter. He took off the fur cap, which was pressing low to his eyebrows, to reveal a somewhat boyish face. He was none other than Li Shentong.

    After taking out the red gown and the green hat he wore earlier to feign insanity, this man did not look the least bit crazy on the contrary, he did not look ugly at all.

    Chen Jingjing looked at him with her eyes brimming with tender and happy feelings, “These last two days must be very hard on you.”

    Li Shentong laughed, “It was not that hard, it was just a bit nerve-wrecking; that four-eyebrowed son of a b**tch truly was not a tasty and well-cooked rice!”

    Suddenly he also asked, “When you left, did he ask you about me?”

    Chen Jingjing shook her head, “He thinks you are really crazy, so basically he does not even think about you!”

    Li Shentong laughed, “That’s why although that guy is like a ghost, he still drank the water you used to wash your feet in.”

    Chen Jingjing: “Wasn’t it entirely because of you? When you pretended to be crazy, even I almost believed it!”

    Li Shentong: “That’s not difficult at all; I only had to pretend that Hong’er was you. You should have known that I directed those words to you.”

    He looked at her as if he was entranced by her, just like a baby desiring to drink his mother’s milk. After a long time, he laughed and said, “What do you think of the way I decorated this room?”

    Chen Jingjing sweetly said, “Very good, it simply looks like a bridal chamber!”

    She lied down with a smile on her face; lied down with that pair of eyes that can melt ice into water looking at Li Shentong. “Do you think I look like a bride?” she asked in husky voice.

    Li Shentong’s adam’s apple went up and down; he looked too nervous to even breathe. Suddenly he pounced to the bed and pressed her down. With a gasping breath he said, “I want you, I have been holding myself crazy … It has been three months since we …”

    While his mouth was busy talking, his hands were also busy pulling her clothes.

    Chen Jingjing did not push him away at all, she was also panting slightly, her hot breath was blowing onto Li Shentong's ear that he felt the bones in his entire body had turned into jelly. She also wrapped her arms around his neck.

    Li Shentong gasped even harder that his voice turned raspy, "I can't take it anymore, hurry up ..."

    Suddenly there was a 'Crack!' noise, just like the sound of breaking bones. He leaped high into the air from Chen Jingjing's body but his head hang limply on his shoulders. His entire body crumpled like a lump of mud as 'Crash!' he fell back onto the floor. His eyes bulged out, his breathing stopped.

    Chen Jingjing did not even give him another look, she quietly lied down on the bed and shut her eyes.

    Right this moment, from outside came a tender laugh, as clear as the sound of a silver bell. Obviously it was a melodious laughter of a woman. She clapped and laughed: "Good, very good! No wonder ever since we were little, Little Ding has always said that you are the most ruthless-hearted woman; she really has not misread you!"

    Chen Jingjing's countenance changed suddenly, but by the time she stood up, her face had already wore that kind of gentle and touching smile, "My heart might be ruthless, but it is still not too black. What about you?"

    "My heart has been eaten by the wild dog a long time ago!"

    A young woman wearing a fur cap and a five-flower pattern dress, walked in with a smile on her face. Her smiling countenance was as beautiful as the fresh blooming flowers in the late spring; she was none other than that really cute and moving Chuchu.

    Behind her followed three men: one man dressed in black wielding a sword, one man looked nimble and strong like an ape, one man was old with long white hair; they followed her closely as if they were her shadow.

    Chen Jingjing had already walked toward her to welcome her, she said sweetly, "I really did not expect you might come over here, otherwise, I would have prepared a few dishes of your favorite delicacies to accompany you drinking a couple of cups of your favorite Rose Nectar Wine!"

    Chuchu smiled even sweeter, "I did not expect you would still remember my favorite dishes?"

    Chen Jingjing: "After all, we grew up together. Even if you have forgotten me, I would definitely still remember you."

    Chuchu: "Really?"

    Chen Jingjing: "Of course. These past couple of days I had always wanted to look for an opportunity to visit you, but I was afraid it might raise someone else's suspicions."

    Chuchu: "Same with me, that lowly four-eyebrowed sex maniac is truly not a good thing."

    The two women were smiling to each other, their smiles were brimming with warm friendship.

    With a tender voice Chen Jingjing said, "You haven't change a bit!"

    Chuchu: "Neither have you."

    Chen Jingjing: "I have missed you so much these past few years.

    Chuchu: "I have missed you even more."

    Both women were walking toward each other with arms open wide, as if they wanted to hug the other to express their love. But before they reached each other, Chen Jingjing's smile suddenly disappeared, her tender gaze became a fierce stare filled with a murderous look; her hands also changed, from open palms into eagle claws. Like a lightning one claw struck toward Chuchu's main artery, while the other claw maliciously grabbed Chuchu's abdomen below her left ribs.

    It was a very sharp and vicious attack, and was executed exactly in the same way as Leng Hong'er's 'spraining the muscle dislocating the bones' technique. If Chuchu was grabbed by her, Chuchu would not be able to die easily even if she wanted to.

    But although her action was fast, Chuchu was even faster; she had just made a move when a light 'Ding!' was heard, two thin dark rays, as thin as a cow's hair, shot out from both of Chuchu's long sleeves.

    She only felt tingling sensation on both knees, just like as if she was bitten by a mosquito; her strength immediately drained out and her legs gave up. 'Plop!' she fell on her knees, she knelt right in front of Chuchu.

    Chuchu laughed again, with laughter as clear as the silver bell, "We have been sisters for many years, why be overly courteous?"

    Amidst the melodious laughter, another cold ray flashed, striking Chen Jingjing's laughter acupoint on her waist.

    Chen Jingjing started to laugh, she could not stop giggling, but there was not the least bit of laughter in her eyes. Her pretty face contorted in pain, with beads of cold sweat the size of soy beans rolled down her face.

    Chuchu winked and laughed. "I get it. You must have been pricked by your own conscience that you have wronged me, and so you come to me to apologize. But why must you kneel down? As long as you hand that thing over to me, I won't blame you anymore!"

    Chen Jingjing was still laughing hysterically while the cold sweats were still flowing profusely; she struggled to say, "What thing?"

    Chuchu: "You don't know?"

    Chen Jingjing shook her head; her whole body was weakened from the laughter that this shake of the head seemed to entail a very strenuous effort on her part.

    Chuchu's countenance fell; she coldly said, "Even among brothers all accounts must be settled clearly. We, sisters, are no different. Jia Leshan was willing to spend four hundred thousand taels of gold for Li Xia's Luocha Tablet. You have promised me that as long as I can come up with a hundred thousand taels of gold, you would guarantee that the Luocha Tablet would be mine, right?"

    Chen Jingjing: "But ... hasn't the Luocha Tablet already been taken by the man you brought along?"

    Chuchu took out a piece of jade tablet. "Are you talking about this?"

    Chen Jingjing nodded.

    Chuchu suddenly walked over and slapped her with the back of her palm, while with a cold laugh said, "Do you really believe I can't see a fake article?"

    Suddenly she forcefully flung the jade tablet toward Li Shentong's head and said, "You regarded this fellow as a clown, you think that his counterfeit goods may fool others, it's just too bad that his engraving of all those demons and deities are worse than Zhu Bajie [the pig-like character in Journey to the West]!"

    Chen Jingjing struggled hard to bite her own lip, trying to stop her laughter, but even after her lip was torn her laughter did not stop.

    Chuchu: "Actually, I have suspected you for a long time. You are obviously aware that the Luocha Tablet is a priceless treasure, yet you were willing to sell it to others? Usually your heart is blacker than anybody; when you eat someone, you won't even spit the bones out. That's why I ordered Xin Lao'er to observe you closely. Even if you hide underground, I will have a way to drag you out!"

    Chen Jingjing: "You ... you think I took away the real Luocha Tablet?"

    Chuchu: “Before Li Xia hid the Luocha Tablet in the frozen river, apparently you have already swapped it with the fake one. Although we originally …”

    I suppose it is too much to ask, even of Gu Long, for the answer to be 'The Luocha Tablet is in the heart!'

    Oh well, this isn't the Dagger Li series.....

    Default Chapter 8 – Part 5

    Thanks everybody, for letting me know you are following the story. If there is enough interest, I might consider the rest of LXF as future project. That is, unless Moin or somebody else beat me to it.

    Thanks Ali, for trying to make this thread alive. If my memory serves me right, you are a Persian, are you? I happen to have a relatively new coworker, a Persian. I tried to introduce this forum to him, but he seems to be too busy.

    CC, 'The Luocha Tablet is in the heart!' is not Gu Long ... it's Disney!
    ----------------------------------------------

    Originally, their plan was …

    The amount of gold as the payment: if Chuchu would pay a quarter of the selling price, as long as three out of twelve chests were filled with gold, the other nine could be filled with rocks.

    Because Chen Jingjing would personally receive the payment, as soon as the twelve chests were submitted, she would immediately notify Li Xia to deliver the goods.

    She was Li Xia's most trusted aide, naturally Li Xia would not suspect any foul play. Li Xia was prepared to use the explosive to blast open the ice on the following day to get the Luocha Tablet out. All she wanted was just gold and men, she did not have the slightest interest toward the throne of the Cult Leader of the Western Region's Demon Cult.

    Chuchu: "But you knew that as soon as she discovered the Luocha Tablet was fake, she would realize you had a part in it, because other than you and herself, there was no third person who knew about this secret. Therefore, that very evening you had to kill her, and then deliberately froze her, along with the Old Goat, inside the ice to divert other people's attention, because nobody would have guessed a woman like you would be able to commit such madness!"

    She immediately continued, "You see, your secret is totally open before me, why would you still feign innocence?"

    Chen Jingjing's entire body was twisting in convulsions; not only she was wet from cold sweat and tears, but even her pants were also completely soaked. Her knees felt like they had just been cut by steel blade, with the sharp edge of the blade lingering on the incisions; but she was still laughing continuously as if she had just picked up three hundred gold ingots from the street.

    Chuchu: "You still don't want to get it out? Do you know what the outcome would be if you keep laughing like this?"

    Chen Jingjing struggled with all her strength to close her mouth, but even her jaw refused to follow her command.

    Chuchu: "When you first laugh, only sweat and tears came out; now, presumably your urine and feces are already out. Two or four hours later, the joints in your entire body would disintegrate, you will crumple on the ground like spilt mud. I don't care who, but if anybody would just touch you with the tip of his finger, I guarantee that you would scream like a pig being slaughtered!"

    Chen Jingjing: "You ... you ..."

    Chuchu: "If you think I do not have the heart to do this kind of ruthless act, you are wrong! Just like Jia Leshan did not believe I could kill him!"

    Chen Jingjing: "You killed him?"

    Chuchu: "He had money, he had power. Although he was no longer young, his stamina was excellent; he was still able to rock the bed, not the least inferior to any young man. His charm against women was several folds better than a young man. He was even more gentle and considerate toward me. Nobody would believe that I was capable of killing him!"

    She continued drily, "Yet I have killed him. Since I can kill him, what other things I won't be able to do?"

    Exhausting her entire strength, Chen Jingjing croaked, "The Luocha Tablet is in my sanitary cloth, please spare me!"

    The sound of laughter had stopped, Chen Jingjing was paralyzed, she sprawled on the floor like a lump of mud.

    Naturally the Luocha Tablet was already in Chuchu's hand. She held this piece of sparkling and translucent jade on the palm of her hands, just like a royalty holding the jade seal, the symbol of his authority. She was delighted, proud and also feeling smug, and could not restrain from shouting and laughing loudly.

    Just when her laughter reached the happiest moment, suddenly a long whip flew in quietly from outside the window. The tip of the whip coiled itself around the jade tablet on her hand and just as quick, like a snake it flew back out the window.

    Chuchu could not laugh anymore, the expression on her face was like someone whose nose had just been cut by somebody else.

    She heard someone outside say with a laugh, "No need to chase me out, because I am coming in. I appreciate your help in getting this Luocha Tablet back for me, the least I can do is express my gratitude personally!"

    Lu Xiaofeng!

    Chuchu bit her lip: "I knew it must be you. Why don't you come in?"

    She had just stopped talking when with a chuckle Lu Xiaofeng suddenly appeared in front of her, with a long whip in one hand and the jade tablet in the other.

    Seeing Lu Xiaofeng, she unexpectedly also laughed, "I didn't know you still have a hidden skill in whip technique!"

    Lu Xiaofeng smiled, "I stole it!"

    Chuchu: "Stole it? Stole what?"

    Lu Xiaofeng: "I stole this whip from the horse-drawn carriage outside, I stole the whip technique from the Shadowless Divine Whip ['wu ying shen bian']. Speaking about stealing, although my skill is a far cry from the King of Thieves, I might say that it is a lot higher than yours."

    Chuchu sighed, "But I already knew about your stealing skill. You almost stole my heart away, much less other things?"

    Lu Xiaofeng laughed, "Didn't you say your heart had already been eaten by some stray dogs?"

    With eyes wide open Chuchu said, "You came here pretty quick, actually!"

    Lu Xiaofeng: "You have never guessed?"

    Chuchu: "How did you find it out?"

    Lu Xiaofeng laughed: "Because when I lay on my bed alone, I had so many things to think about, that's why I was able to solve a lot of mysteries."

    Chuchu pouted: "Who told you to let your imagination runs wild alone? Why didn't you rape me?"

    She seemed to be resentful that other people did not rape her. "You are not even a gentleman. If you could rape others, why couldn't you rape me?"

    Lu Xiaofeng laughed, "Because at that time I was not desperate yet. Since you withheld my desire, I also want to withhold yours!"

    Chuchu blinked her eyes several times. "Since when did you change your mind?"

    Lu Xiaofeng: "Since the rocks spilled out from the chest."

    He chuckled, and continued, "Although I am not accustomed to 'going on the line to open and dig out, stepping on the tray', but whether a chest is made of iron? Or is it gold? I think I can still clearly tell!"

    'Going on the line to open and dig out' means stopping someone on the road and robbing him. 'Stepping on the tray' means looking at the appearance of the goods, looking at the wind and the water. It was said that the experts of the underground world, just by looking at the rising dust when a carriage passed by, would be able to tell what kind of cargo that carriage was hauling, plus the amount of the goods.

    Chuchu sighed again: "Turns out not only you can steal, you also have this kind of ability. Actually it is too bad that a man like you does not become a robber."

    Lu Xiaofeng also sighed in exasperation: "Frankly speaking, sometimes I also feel displeased with myself. Several times I almost change profession!"

    Chuchu sweetly said, "If you did change your profession, definitely I would have been your chief's wife who's keeping the stronghold under control."

    Lu Xiaofeng laughed, "If I became the chief of any gang, I would definitely ask you to become the Hall Leader of one of the three Internal Halls, just like your old friend, Ding Xiangyi!"

    Chuchu's eyes grew big: "You knew I know her?"

    Lu Xiaofeng: “Because as soon as we arrived at Rahasu, it was like you were home, you are very familiar with everything and everybody. At that time I already had my suspicions; it was very possible that you also grew up here, it was very possible that you already knew Chen Jingjing and Ding Xiangyi.”

    Chuchu stared hard at him. “Since you know Little Ding, you must be very close to her. I know her very well, seeing a man like you, it is impossible for her to let you off!”

    Lu Xiaofeng neither denied nor admitted.

    Chuchu pouted again. “Among the three of us, you have slept with two. Why did you neglect me?”

    The two of them were talking and joking, flirting with each other; while the faces of the three men behind her had already changed. Suddenly they leaped out to surround Lu Xiaofeng with glowering looks.

    Lu Xiaofeng acted as if he had just noticed them. He smiled, “Last time gentlemen withdrew without any fight; this time you all want to try again?”

    The white-haired old man coldly said, “Last time we should have killed you!”

    Xin Lao’er: “Last time we spared you because she still wanted to use you as her puppet!”

    Lu Xiaofeng laughed aloud, “If I am her puppet, then what are you? I need only to nod, and she will come with me, but you?”

    The three men’s countenance grew even more terrifying, they turned their heads toward Chuchu, but Chuchu stepped aside, as if saying that this matter had nothing to do with her.

    Lu Xiaofeng: “Actually, I have recognized Huashan disciple ‘Solitary Finger Penetrates the Heaven’, Hua Shaokun, the Wulin master of Jiangbei [in Sichuan province] ‘Multi-hand Wolf Immortal’, Hu Xin, and Cloaked Sword School’s ‘Divine Sword in Black’, Du Bai, long ago; but I did not dare to announce it to the world, because I did not believe three famous experts of such famous schools would be willing to be a woman’s slaves.”

    Default haha iranians

    yup foxs you have a powerful mind.
    me and little fish are brothers; we read the forum allmost daily, like watching my favorit cartoon.

    You have an iranian work buddy ? Iranians actually have a lot in common with chines (im assuming ur chines hee he hee) as far as culture, but we also have some key differences. We have a lot of martial arts style stories... similar to the greeks with odysias and herculeas and what not. i have never read them... (i dont speek farsi 100 %) but i have read and heard summaries of them countless times

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rostam

    Hmmm i think woxia takes a certain personality and imagination... and if some one is not in the right fram of mind they dont really get into it.

    Foxs is forcing me to remove my cloak of lurking to continue getting my fix of LXF.

    Excellent translation as usual by the way.
