    Okay, fair enough. It sounds like Wuxia is much more what I'm after than Kung Fu/Martial Arts movies.

    I really liked the "Giang Hu underworld" of CTHD, even though it wasn't that prominent in the story. I decided to take some of that on in considering how I run Exalted, so that there are now loosely-connected dojos in (my) Creation. Traveling performers might get into fights in the street because one belongs to an underworld society of Dreaming Pearl Courtesan stylists, and the other belongs to an underworld society of Silver-Voiced Nightingale Stylists.

    5, too! Never having heard of the series before, I got into it when my housemate was playing it because of the top-notch battle music. It makes me want to make Night-castes. Or Air aspects. Flamboyant ones.
