    Default Who invented the Hong Lung 28/18 Palms in the later editions of the novels?

    In the first editions of the novels, North Beggar Hung 7 Gung was cited as the founder of the Beggar's Union and the inventor of the Hong Lung 18 Palms. The publication of DGSD years later rendered that original claim moot.

    So...who *is* the inventor of the Hong Lung 28 (18) Palms in the later editions of the Jin Yong novels? Was it the founding Chief of the Beggar's Union (whomever that might have been)? Was it invented by one person, or by a group of first-generation Beggar's Union elders?
