Bring the Dying Back to Life – The Golden Needle Sect

The Golden Needle Sect is situated at the eastern suburb of Chengdu. Disciples practice a unique set of Healing Skills and are adept at curing all kinds of ailments, which has earned them great respect. With their well-concealed weapons and low profile personalities, they will not engage in combat unless openly provoked. Their Golden Needle Skill is capable of healing grievous wounds and striking acupoints of their foes with surgical precision.

It is said that their offensive masteries in throwing weapons match that of the assassins of Tangmen. Enemies of the sect often think thrice to prevent being punctured by a rain of needles.

The Golden Needle Sect has been on a decline after their previous House-Lord, Shen Jingfeng, was killed while attempting to eliminate a growing bandit threat. However, the Family had a fortuitous turn once Shen Canghai was appointed as the new leader. Through great endeavors and effort, he begins to reconstruct the Golden Needle Sect to its former glory.
