    Default Why Jinyong don't create any new hero during Yuan Dynasty?

    Hello ,i have a question ,why Jinyong don't create any new hero during Yuan dynasty apart Zhang Wuji ?
    Many important history event happen during Yuan Dynasty like Mongol invasion of Europe ,Middle East , Japan and Jawa ,Marco Polo visit China and Kublai Khan,Black Death etc?
    He can create 3 or more hero during this era to link Yang Guo and Zhang Wu Ji.
    Why he don't take the idea from TVB serial Eternal Happiness再生緣?
    Why he don't create a hero fighting with the Mongol or against the Mongol?
    Why he don't create a brotherhood like DGSD with friendship between Han,Mongol ,Jurchen ,Japanese,Vietnamese ,European ,Muslim ,etc?
    Is Yuan dynasty really that bad so no hero arise ?


    Thanks.

    I think it might be because any story set in the period before major rebellions broke out against the Mongols would have likely been depressing. The period from the fall of Seung Yeung to the beginning of HSDS was one in which the Mongols dominated the Chinese heartland. Chinese wulin heroes might have scored minor victories here and there during this period, but overall, we knew that their heroics would amount to little.

    By the time of HSDS, Jin Yong could begin setting up the downfall of the Yuan Dynasty.
