    Why not make many many copies and give a copy to each great so they won't go after one another over the manuals.

    Printing presses weren't invented yet. Copying the manuscripts or using manual prints would have been prohibitively time- and labor-consuming.

    Moreover, the wulin cultural norm was to keep elite martial arts exclusive, not propagate them among the masses.

    I've made some adjustments this week to the details and dates of various events.

    I extended the period for the series of events from Yeung Gor's initial departure from the Ancient Tomb to the beginning of Little Dragon Girl's self-exile to two years; it didn't seem to make sense that all those events took place in the time frame of a single year.

    A new addition in the third edition of the novels, apparently. Wong Chung Yeung and an anonymous Buddhist monk friend got into a drinking contest, and if Wong Chung Yeung lost, he would let the monk read the 9 Yum Jen Ging. WCY did indeed lose, and let the monk read the 9 Yum Jen Ging. The monk was intrigued, and wondered if similar results could be achieved by taking a different approach. He succeeded, and the product was the 9 Yeung Jen Ging.

    Quite possibly. Anyone who can read the 9 Yum Jen Ging once and devise an effective yang-based counterpart to it must have some extraordinary talent.
