There are many ways to solve problems that may arise in Wushu. I'm a blacksmith, poison maker, and hunter by trade. There is a method at which I approach these problems.
As many of you know, Wushu is a FFA game with harsh penalties for those who break the law, the law of Wushu, and the law of Jianghu customs. The champion of the Mount Hua Tournament (monthly 1v1), the Western Poison, the Head Master of Wanderers Valley (his formal titles), had broken many laws of each.
The Western Poison, once holder of the Heavenly Blade had grown drunk off power. He's arrogance crossed all bounds. Dirty deals, false imprisonment, and murder are common place. Last night he and his goons falsely imprisoned my sister (a female charter friend of equal stature), he had broke Jianghu law. This while he himself had carried a bounty for days. I'm no saint myself, by Wushu standards, litterly atrocious (my alignment) but I do not break Jianghu law. Let the hunt begin!
I contacted my friend early this afternoon and said let's arrest him. This would be no small task, the Western Poison's technique is strong, plus he has learned a source of awesome inner power, Purple Rosy Clouds. If that alone is not enough, he is seldom with out his goons.
I began to put together a team. I sent a carrier pigeon (not really, I pm'd, but I could have) to a Royal Guard, masters of the chain claw for control, a Wanderer who would gladly betray and silence his Head Master, and another Tangmen from my sister and my sect, we would deal the damage with poison smeared darts.
The opportunity for the three others came on short notice, they were into their own matters and would join us in Chengdu shortly. In the meantime my sister and I went to the Chengdu Adminstrator and paid the 5 taels to become Constables. We decided to hunt him, and keep an eye on him until the others came., or if the circumstances would arrive, go for the arrest.
The hunt didn't take long. True to form, The Western Poison was in the center of town, near the bank, with his bounty, with two goons. On top of that he was sparing with someone. His arrogance truly had no bounds. My sister and I watched as he spared, me from a roof top over looking the intersection, and her from around a corner near. We watched as he spared taking nearly no damage, not once, not twice but three times. The third time he had let his guard down and was taking damage. Our opportunity was near.
Seeing this my sister said we should go now he will heal soon. Being a hunter and a poison maker, I know when pray is weak. I told her "wait." Our pry still had plenty of fight. "Just a little longer and this will be a clean arrest." She paused, the next thing I know, she next to him, street level throwing her darts smeared with one of my nastier slow poisons. He told her "you have 30 secs to leave before I kill you." I jumped down from the roof launching my darts.
As soon as the Western Poison felt my darts then saw me, he turned filled with rage. In an instant he charged using an ancient style. I blocked the blow, but was knocked back. He pounced, broke my block, and unleashed the Ancient Tai Chi Rage. I was stunned as blue ball grew within his swirling hands. Helpless I was tossed forth then back. True to form, he then switched to the Wanderers Valley double blade style, Wind Chasing Blade. I was silenced as he continued his assault. I quickly slid away to regain my footing.
All the while sis was delivering multiples of mean darts that where now taking there toll. As I turned to begin my second assault, The Western Poison ran, knowing the situation was hopeless. We gave chase, but we where too late, he had ran into the pretty girls house (this where you try on different clothing designs) the only safe point in all the cities of Wushu. He had escaped literally, an inch from arrest.
The lesson had been served though, and he now knows things aren't as safe as he thought they were. He stood looking from out the pretty girls house speechless. I told my sis "Let's go, we will get another chance. He's too arrogant not to give us another shot."
