    Default *S* is for *Survivor*

    Rules

    1. Each novel starts at 10 points. Either add (+) OR subtract (-) a point, in bold, for a novel. It is not necessary to place alternating votes at this time.

    2. 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 can vote again.

    3. Once a novel reaches score of zero (0), it is eliminated from the game and no more votes may be cast for it.

    4. To facilitate the tracking of the scores, please cut and paste the ENTIRE LIST of novels in your post (highlighting your addition/subtraction).

    5. New Rule effective immediately: The maximum score for any candidate is 60. Once a candidate reaches 60, no more point may be added to it.

    ===========================================

    Dear SPCNETies, after years of break from the Survivor scene, it's time for a revival of the Survivor Game during this Winter break

    Tried and survived have been martial arts, characters, and couples.

    ... But never have novels been put to the test.

    That's why, I propose, we have a Survival of the Wuxia Novels. All novelists' works are welcome to be nominated. We shall pick the most popular titles as game candidates.

    Please submit suggestions, feedback, and less known novel titles you'd like to champion.

    I look forward to a friendly and competitive game with you fine folks.

    Imagine the best wuxia novels going head to head against each other, vying for top honor.



    That's the vision for this proposed game.



    However, it will only happen--with the level of excitement experienced in past Survivor games--if many of you participate.



    Therefore, please participate when the game begins.

    For those not familiar with how a wuxia survivor game is played, please check out the following historical games to get the idea:

    the original Spcnet Wuxia Survivor Game - Swordsmen Survivor

    Thumbs up

    This is interesting. A nice way to kick-start the new year (or decade) HERE.

    Just a suggestion, how about 30 novels? 10 for Jin Yong, 10 for Gu Long and 10 for the other writers like, for example, Liang Yusheng. (I don't know any of his novels though.)

    I don't think I will impose a hard constraint on how many novels per person. I'd rather let the ppl decide which novels get selected.

    I may also support some Gu Long novels over my favorite DGSD.

    And Ren Wo Xing will most likely will too over his favorite SPW.

    Game hasn't started but already looks doomy for Jin Yong.

    As a precursor, PJ should do a short series on ELON

    You would need a comprehensive list of novels, and as bliss is saying, description about them.

    All my support.

    I think the biggest ELON has to be Yin Yang Sabres. I've known forever that it's a Jinyong novel but I haven't the slightest clues as to what it's about, who's in it, or any single shred of information whatsoever about it, short of there might be something about a pair of sabres.

    Actually, Yuan Yang Sabre has been exposed here slightly, mainly thanks to HuangYushi. I mostly remember it for what Laviathan called the walking encyclopedia of wuxia sayings, a man by the name of Zhou Weixin, who preceded many of his thoughts with a wuxia saying that described the situation. http://www.spcnet.tv/forums/showpost...8&postcount=33

    The Jin Yong novel that I know the least about is White Horse Neighing in the West Wind.

    That is truly a good thing. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have generated much discussion about the novel yet.

    Wu lin Wai Shi should never be translated like that. That sounds so bad!!

    As to the others- Also please link in the translations that we already have. It makes it more informative and interesting.

    But... isn't it pretty much the exact translation?

    It's the one used by Wuxiapedia, by the way.

    Let's see how many participants we get. Since we're on a holiday break, if there aren't many people playing, we may pause the game until more people come back. But, we'll kick things off tomorrow.

    Here are the proposed rules (back to basics).

    1. Each novel starts at 10 points. Either add (+) OR subtract (-) a point for a novel. It is not necessary to place alternating votes at this time.

    2. 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 can vote again.

    3. Once a novel reaches score of zero (0), it is eliminated from the game and no more votes may be cast for it.

    4. To facilitate the tracking of the scores, please cut and paste the ENTIRE LIST of novels in your post (highlighting your addition/subtraction).
