The 9 Yum Jen Ging was essential to the narrative of LOCH. Without the presence of the 9 Yum Jen Ging, the story of LOCH largely unravels because integral parts of the story are dependent upon the pursuit of this supreme martial arts novel.
The 9 Yum Jen Ging also features in the narrative of ROCH, but not to nearly as a great an extent. How important do you think the 9 Yum Jen Ging was to the ROCH story? Was it still integral (albeit reduced compared to in LOCH), or was it barely relevant to the story and only there to make for better continuity with LOCH?
