Story[edit | edit source]
The Scholar’s Academy was established by Prince Bieqing and the famed scholar Shi Yanbing after they met on Taihu Lake and became firm friends. They decided to establish the academy, located on the shores of the lake, so that they might associate with like-minded people: people talented in literature, music and painting.
The members of the Scholar’s Academy are all refined scholars and highly skilled in the four Confucian arts of guqin, Chinese chess (weiqi), calligraphy and painting, as well as some unusual martial arts that use music and dance as their principal attack methods. They emphasise internal training and the cultivation of internal energy.

They are highly skilled in the refined art of the sword and their ‘Limitless Sword Technique’ is renowned in the Jianghu, they also use musical instruments as weapons as well as empty-hand techniques.

Sect Rules[edit | edit source]
Each sect has its own rules and regulations, which lead to “Rule Points”, which, when they reach a certain level, incur sect penalties.

|Committing Evil (Kidnap trading)||10 points|

|Harming the same sect (including Guild War)||40 points|
When a player’s “Rule Points” exceed 100, and they enter a sect’s scene, they will be teleported directly to the sect; an animated punishment will be broadcast, the player’s Life (HP) will be halved and a strength weakening BUFF will be attached to them for a stipulated time period.
