Glossary

 

Ah Hu– Simple and honest fellow, Yan Zhaoge’s attendant. Currently in the Heavenly Connection Stage, the peak of the Martial Scholar realm. An expert in his own right. Deserves a category of his own

Artifacts – These are the magical weapons and armors of the Eight Extremities World, containing spiritual qi. They exist above the ‘mortal tools’ of the ordinary world.  Their creation requires a martial practitioner versed in artifact forging. From least to the most powerful: mortal tool, demi-artifact, artifact, spirit artifact, sacred artifact, divine artifact

Divine Palace – This is an extraordinary martial organisation of the past.  Yan Zhaoge was a member of this place and worked in its book storage building.  Basically almost any relic or skill book from this place was a priceless treasure.  The martial arts collected there were the best from an era of peak prosperity.  Yan Zhaoge has tons of these books memorized

 

Eight Extremities World – This is a cultivation world full of martial practitioners, spiritual treasures, and fantastic creatures.  The world is divided into 8 Domains, each of which is further divided into Regions.  So far it appears these territories and their placement seem to be based on the Bagua, so the territory names should match the eight trigrams of the I Ching.

baguaE

The eight territories should be Heaven, Wind, Water, Mountain, Earth, Thunder, Fire, and River

 

 

 

 

 

Elders – First Seat Elders>Principal Elders/Disciplinary Elders>Acting Elders

Great Calamity – Some mysterious disaster that ended an era, destroyed the Divine Palace and killed Yan Zhaoge.  Yan Zhaoge is working hard to figure out what happened

Martial Practitioners– These are people who pursue the martial dao.  They are divided into several major realms.  Martial Artist < Martial Scholar < Martial Grandmaster < Martial Saint. Each of the realms are divided into many different levels.  They generally consist of 4 stages– 3 major stages and the ‘peak stage’ of that particular realm.  The major stages each have 3 phases – early, mid, late.  Thus there are a total of 10 levels in each realm.  The last level of each realm is also the fourth and final stage, with the most difficult bottleneck to overcome

Would-be Main Characters– A major plot element in HSSB. Currently only including the now deceased Ye Jing and Zhao Hao, the reincarnation of the Pill Fire Divine Sword Gao Zhe. Antagonistic towards Broad Creed Mountain, he is currently residing at Infinite Boundless Mountain
