Ok, double post, but it's for a reason. So a while back, you could remember me talking about what the work wuxia means in this setting for me. I've been thinking about it, and I'd like to add to that. So while everything I said there is true, I'd like to point something out: pretty much all of it should apply only to heroic people. Now, this doesn't mean it should be limited to PCs or even the main figures in a plot; it should be something used to spice up people that would reasonably be that skilled, and best of all limit most heroic NPCs to having perhaps one thing they can do. Say you want the sergeant of the guard to be know as a very skilled fighter, possibly to train a PC. So have stories of how he fought off a band of
orcsbandits single-handed. Perhaps you want a brute to be know for his strength. So say he managed to wrestle a bear and throw it.
