    Default Random Thoughts of Wuxia

    This is a place for you to say something wuxia-related, but not quite deserving of its own topic.

    The mythology of DGQB increases every year. Xiao Feng can't even beat him anymore.

    Thinking back to when I first read wuxia (~ 8 years old), the wuxia universe was wide open, where anything was possible. Now after reading, and sticking to, Jin Yong, I've gained knowledge of his wuxia universe, but unfortunately it has also confined my sense of the broader wuxia universe. It's time to rediscover the feeling of limitlessness to when opening the first pages of a new wuxia book.

    You've got to be careful when attaching the concept of "random" to something because many things you did not plan on happening likely will.

    He never could. Now you're just trolling.

    Not necessarily. Many of us have never drunk a drop of Dook Goo Kau Bai's Kool-Aid.

    I think tape meant in terms of general consensus.

    I only know him from ROCH... But he wasn't really my cup of tea.

    That reminds me - gonna write my paper for the "Religion in China" seminar about Quan Zhen.
    Yep.

    What consensus? On this forum alone, there are at least a half-dozen people who aren't convinced that Dook Goo Kau Bai would necessarily prevail over Kiu Fung.

    If Ye Gu Cheng had found his own "Sun Xiu Qing" would she be like Xi Men Chue Xie's...errr Sun Xiu Qing?

    If Ye Gu Cheng had his own "Sun Xiu Qing" would he still be the same Ye Gu Cheng facing Xi Men Chue Xie at the time of the duel?

    In the Julian Cheung adaptation of Lu Xiao Feng, Peter Ho should have switched characters with Yan Kuan. The latter is way cooler and more refined. Even with the moustache.
    I like me.

    Once, DGQB was ranked equal to Huang Shang and the 2 of them slightly above the ROCH Greats. Now, DGQB is defeating Sweeper Monk nearly 4 times out of 10 and Huang Shang is forgotten and probably would be ranked below the Greats. The mythologizing continues.

    Dude. This is a 'Random Thought' thread. Call me a troll in any other Wuxia discussion thread, but doing it here is disingenuous.

    Well I've always had a slight feeling that you trolled a lot of Dugu discussion threads just for fun. Since this topic came up and you brought it up, I brought it up too. If you did troll it for fun then it doesn't really matter which thread I'm bringing it up in since you were trolling !

    But if you didn't, then I wrongly accused you but am just letting you know some of your posts possess troll-ish tendencies, and letting you know surely can't be out of line either way.

    Gu Long mentioned in passing that during his youth, Yip Goo Sing had had a lover, but then declined to describe what she was like.

    Her death apparently triggered the series of events that led to Yip Soo Sing deciding it would be a good idea to lend his sword skills to the conspiracy to murder the Ming emperor.

    The general consensus of the forum, exactly as PJ has said. Even if there are a whole six people that believe Xiao Feng can beat Dugu, that just means the other 90% and general consensus of the forum believe otherwise.

    I was under the impression that after the "enlightenment" brought by Laviathan where he turned the forums upside down by saying Condor Greats ~= DGSD elites that it automatically made Dugu > Xiao Feng because everyone believed Dugu > Greats at the least. (even if marginally)
