    Default A few things don't make sense about the Yanmen Guan incident

    1. How is it possible that a world-class martial artist like Xiao Yuanshan didn't notice the killing of his entourage in front of him, even if he was in a good mood talking to his wife?

    2. Xiao Yuanshan spoke Khitanese the whole time with the Central Plains attackers, which they couldn't understand. Did he really not know Han Chinese, even though his MA was taught by a Han Chinese? Also, you'd think such an important organized event would have at least one person who understands Khitanese from the Mainland side.

    3. Given the unprovoked attack initiated by the Song people, how could Xiao Yuanshan neglect his wife and child to be killed easily? This doesn't make sense. He was an experienced martial artist by that time, he should instinctively know opponents would attack the weakest link first and protecting them should be his highest priority. This is after the Song people already killed his entourage. He should be on highest alert.
    忽见柳荫下两个小孩子在哀哀痛哭,瞧模样正是武敦儒、武修文兄弟。郭芙大声叫道:「喂,你们在干甚麽?」武 修文回头见是郭芙,哭道:「我们在哭,你不见麽?」

    1. Would have to put it down to them being really really far ahead and none of em had SWORD GOD Zhuo Bufan's voice transmission skills.

    2a. Maybe his teacher was some Han who spoke Khitan, that's how I always imagined it. Hell, if you can learn super advanced arts like Xiao Yao arts (or even the sword sect breaking arts from SOD) from pictures, his teacher could have drawn on the sand to teach him for all we know...

    2b. Was it a big event? I thought he was just visting his teacher to show him his new son with the +99 buff or something. Not some diplomatic visit.

    3. Yeah, plot armor chink I guess. Same with DFBB not noticing Yang getting attacked even though he wasn't over-stressed by his 3 opponents.
    Its BIxie Jianfa Gawdammit you guys!!!!
