Expansion - Ming Cult & Snowland Battle Royale

1. Ming

1.1 Ming intro:

Those heroes, who defeated Yuan Dynasty with the first founder of this dynasty, didn't want to be an officer in the government but chose to be hermits in the mountains. Later, they created a faction called Ming Cult. Although living in seclusion, people of Ming Cult still consider protecting the land of central plains as their responsibility.

Ming Cult comes to jianghu with six sets of internal skills, [Blazing Flame], [Sunburst Skill], [Scorching Sun Heart Sutra], [Prairie Fire Miracle], [Vidyaraja Secret], [Move the Sky Burn the Sea], and four sets of martial arts, [Flickering Light Stab], [Enlightened Shadowblade], [Fallen Goose Bow], [Divine Arrow Nine Skills]. Why not go and have a check.

1.2 School Internal Skills:

Blazing Flame:

Ming Cult novice internal skill. It's purpose is to control fire of heart and lay the foundation against demonic possession for the later practice of deeper internal skills. When this internal skill is trained to the extreme, fire of heart is taken and given with ease, attached to the internal skill, and imperceptibly hurts the enemy.

Sunburst Skill:

Ming Cult legendary internal skill. It was created by an elder hiding at the top of snowy mountain peak. It was a set of methods to induce Yang fire to resist extreme cold. In his later years the elder was invited to Ming Cult and spread this mental skill to the disciples.

Scorching Sun Heart Sutra:

Ming Cult internal skill epitome that roots from an ancient Persian religious teachings. The cultivation conditions are very harsh, and it is extremely difficult for people without great perseverance to practice it. Later, after being carefully modified and purified by a generation of masters, practice of this discipline became available to many cult's disciples.

Prairie Fire Miracle:

It used to be an advanced skill of a certain school hundreds of years ago. The school was destroyed in the chaos of the previous dynasty, and the Scripts after being scattered over Jianghu came into possession of Ming Cult. The original name was lost, but once this skill is practiced, the sparks become a prairie fire, transforming the corruptible into mysterious life, hence the name, "Prairie Fire Miracle".

Vidyaraja Secret:

A unique internal skill created by a Ming Cult elder hailing from the Western Regions. This skill is very different from the Central Plains authentic internal skills. Having a secret Buddhist teaching as a background, it focuses on the three methods of righteous, strange and evil. The body of the user gains heavenly Buddha protection. In such a state stone will yield to them and no harm will be taken.

Move the Sky Burn the Sea:

Ming Cult rare miraculous skill. Created by the joint effort of the first three generations of the Central Plains Ming Cult leaders. At it's highest level, the blood circulates and spreads pure intentions. There is an ability to move through the vessels, gather and unload the energy of Chi, reverse the hard and soft, and reverse the power of Yin and Yang. The non-perceptive will overlook mystery.

1.4 Ming school forbidden instance:

In the chaos of the world decades ago, the Ming Cult congregation took the lead in raising the banner of righteousness against the Tartar. Its forces swept through Wulin with the force of the prairie fire, and their influence for a while remained great. Although the Ming Cult congregation is broad, it has all kinds of people there. At that time, a dark master was hunted by many enemies because he hid a book of wicked evil. Later, he changed his name and entered Ming Cult. He secretly practiced dark arts, and he became possessed by the devil.

After that, he had disputes with several cult members and seriously wounded them. Finally, the Ming Cult could not tolerate him anymore. After being besieged by the cult's masters, he escaped and disappeared into the mountains with Scripts. It is rumored that a few years later a group of Ming Cult congregation accidentally went deep into the mountains and were attacked by a fierce giant ape. According to the survivors, this ape used the martial arts of the apostasy demon. In a short while the news spread rapidly. The former enemies of the apostasy demon in Jianghu and those who coveted the evil skills learned that the clues of the Scripts were hidden on the demon ape in the mountains, and went to look for it. One of the most mysterious foreign forces, Mingyue, even sent their martial masters to set camp in the surrounding mountains.

After most of the Wulin people failed to find anything, they insisted on staying and looking for the Demon Ape. Ming Cult and Mingyue camp for many years were only separated by the mountains. Although they had no contact with each other, they were alert of each other's existence. Today they found out about their ambitions and decided to strike the Ming Cult whenever there is a chance, and encroach it. Should Ming Cult ignore this, it will surely become the biggest hidden danger of the cult!
