[Monk Dingxian]
A head of the [Emei Denomination], a sect comprised of female monks in Mount Emei, China. Her belief is based on Buddhism but is also influenced by Taoism, and the sect accepts no secular monks.

Main Character Upgrade Quest
Location: Sea of Clouds Plaza in Mt. Emei

1.Fuhu Temple, Mount Emei

Oh my. I have a very important-looking visitor.
Nice to meet you. I am Dingxian, an old monk training here at Mountain Emei.
I am in charge of the [Fuhu Temple], but I'm not good at anything.
Hohoho. You say I look young, but I'm sure you're joking.
Of course, all the pure energy around here keeps me healthy and vital... but I can never go against the course of time.
No matter, thank you very much.
It feels good to be complimented.
~
There used to be many tigers in Mountain Emei, and they attacked many people.
But one day, Monk Shixing got rid of them and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.
So... what did I say the name of this place was?
Mission: Answer [Fuhu Temple, Mount Emei] Question => Fuhu Temple
Yes, that's right.
[Fuhu Temple]. It's a name that will watch over [Mount Emei] forever.
I am very proud of this temple.
Reward:
  • Experience: 150,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

2.Multi-Hued Jewel

I've been training here long enough to learn how to read the heavenly energy of the stars.
Right. The trials you have experienced thus far pale in comparison to what lies ahead.
The world is about to spiral into chaos.
However, the stars predicted there would be a very important visitor. So I knew you would come today.
Do you know the saying [Jie Ling Xi Ling]?
It means "The person who tied the knot should untie it too..." I'm sure you will understand it someday.
~
First of all, I need mysterious gems called [Multi-Hued Jewels].
It is a very precious item in this region, but I believe you can get it for me.
Can you bring me some [Multi-Hued Jewels]?
Mission: Multi-Hued Jewel x5
You've returned.
Precious items are always worth the price.
I'll make an item you really need with this.
Reward:
  • Experience: 150,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

3.Wise Choice

As I said before, you will face many difficulties in the road ahead.
While you must be able to endure these challenges, your luck and wisdom are also important.
~
I have prepared some challenges to test your abilities, but it's best we test your luck before we begin.
Can you show me your fortune?

(Use the [Jackpot Challenge] function on the right side of the screen.)
Mission: Use [Jackpot Challenge]
Fine.
Then I'll get to the point.
Reward:
  • Experience: 150,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

4.Trainee's Talent I

I'd like to know what your talents are.
I have to know your abilities so I can enhance your potential accordingly.
~
I don't care where you go or who you fight with.
Engage in several battles using all of the skills available to you.
You should fight using as much magic as possible, as opposed to normal skills.
It doesn't matter if you're the one using magic or your mercenaries. You and your friends are basically the same.
Mission: Use any magic (20/20)
I've observed your battles from here.
I think I know a little about what weapons you use and how you fight.
Reward:
  • Experience: 300,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

5.Trainee's Talent II

This time might be a little tricky.
You have perhaps grown accustomed to having the support of your allies in battle. But, there may be times in the future in which you're on your own.
Therefore, I think you should be prepared for that kind of situation as well.

~
Sometimes it's better to fight with 2 or more mercenaries disabled. Simply tell them not to join the battle, and the remaining mercenaries will gain more Action Power every turn.
Do you understand me?
Enter the number of the correct answer.
1: Sometimes a smaller, faster attack force is better.
2: The bigger army always wins!
Mission: Answer [Trainee's Talent II] Question => 1
Great work.
One's latent powers tend to grow stronger when he is in danger.
This was training for that.
Reward:
  • Experience: 300,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

6.The Meaning of Duan Lian

Do you happen to know the meaning of [Duan Lian]?
Most people think of training for a strong body and mind when they hear the words [Duan Lian].
And many say they achieved [Duan Lian] after training for only a few days, but in fact, that is an incorrect interpretation.
When we train the body, it is [Duan].
When we train the soul, it is [Lian].
Train the body, [Duan] and train the soul, [Lian].
And we call it [Duan Lian], as one phrase.
~
That is, when you have trained for an eternity, you achieve [Duan Lian].
We can say we finally achieve [Duan Lian] after training at least half our lives.
Would you read this [Trainee's Scroll]?
Mission: Read [Trainee's Scroll]
Trainee's Scroll[Duan], the training of the body...
[Lian], the training of the soul...
Once more, the training of the body is [Duan],
And once more, the training of the soul is [Lian].

The trainee should always remember this.

When one can unconsciously unite one's body and soul through continuous training and unending endurance, one can reach the final stage of [Duan Lian].
The change won't take you within just a few practices.
True mastery is best found through practicing over and over again.
This is a [Manual for Trainees] that has been handed down within the Emei denomination for a long time.
There are only a few sentences, but please remember that their meaning is greater than anything else.
Reward:
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

7.First Task

I will now take you to the Training Arenas that have been forbidden to all but the best and brightest pupils of the Emei denomination.
It was never opened to outsiders before, and one can only try to pass each Arena once every 5 years.
So, in order for an Emei trainee to pass all 4 Training Arenas, it would take at least 20 years.
Since entering the arenas puts your life at risk, not everyone is given a chance.
But I'll specially open everything for you.
And I'll increase the difficulty much higher than normal.
~
Here is your first task.
You will see Trainee's Wooden Puppets and Wooden Arhat Puppets when you go to [Training Arena I].
Get rid of them and bring me their [Wooden Puppet's Clockwork] as evidence.
You came back earlier than I expected.
The puppets must have been too sturdy for you to open.
...
Reward:
  • Experience: 300,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

8.Blue-eyed Puppet Maker

Weren't you scared of those automated wooden puppets?
Most trainees who try the [First Task] are shaken up by their experience.
You are too confident to even feel fear.
What? You have seen puppets such as this before?
...
It can't be true...
It is a unique craft of our nation, a tradition that we have practiced proudly for thousands of years.
~
What? There was an old Puppet Maker in the far west who was making automated Wooden Puppets?
So there was a blue-eyed westerner whose dream was to make a Wooden Puppet named [Pinoccio]?
What... what was his name?
Mission: Answer [Blue-eyed Puppet Maker] Question => Geppetto
Oh, of course...
[Geppetto]. That was him.
Reward:
  • Experience: 150,000
  • Gold: 500,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

9.Second Task

A long time ago, there was a traveler who came all the way to the east with the wind.
Following the western merchants who came to Central Asia to sell their wares, he came here at last.
He had a dream.
He dreamed he would make a Wooden Puppet that can move, feel and act like a human being... It was an impossible dream.
A Puppet with feelings...
I was so impressed with his passion for puppetry that I showed him the Arhat Puppets in the [First Task] without anyone knowing.
It was forbidden to share our secrets with outsiders...
I guess... I was too young then. I wasn't scared to break the rules.
Anyway, when he saw them he simply told me that he would make Wooden Puppets better than ours.
~
Oh... How long have I pattered on?
This is your second task. Go to [Training Arena II], get rid of the Arhat Trainees and Crouching-Tiger Arhats and bring me some [Monk Trainee's Bead].
You shouldn't consider them as ordinary trainees. They are promising pupils from [Wulin Temple] who are working with us in our training.
Mission: Monk Trainee's Bead x20
Thank you for your hard work.
I believe you have gained some measure of enlightenment while fighting them.
Reward:
  • Experience: 300,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
  • Item: Blue Quill x3
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

10.Meaning of Giving a Name

Where was I?
[Geppetto]... He was a little older than me. I don't know why, but I found his blue eyes and fair skin very impressive.
Perhaps it was because I was young, but it was nice to see him completely preoccupied with his work.
He also said that, if he ever succeeded, he would name the Wooden Puppet [Pinoccio]...
I didn't know what that meant, but even in my youth I could vaguely sense his feelings of longing.
~
Giving someone a name...
To give someone a name is to give him a different meaning.
Would you like to give your mercenaries names?

HINT: Mercenary Inventory - Character Info - Rename Mercenary - Use [Blue Quill]
Mission: Rename a Mercenary x1
It's a wonderful experience to receive a meaningful name from someone.
Particularly...
It can be a very special experience for some people.
Reward:
  • Experience: 150,000
  • Gold: 500,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

11.Third Task

My original name was [Yuan Geng].
[Geppetto]... he was not good at Chinese, but he used to tell me that I had a good name.
At first, he always used to mumble when he said my name. I used to laugh so hard listening to his pronunciation.
I used to like watching him from afar when he was deep in thought.
...
I... just liked it a lot.
~
Ah... Here I am, blathering on again.
Here is your third task. Go to [Training Arena III], get rid of the [Cursed Brass Soldiers] and [Cursed Guards], and bring me their mechanical devices.
They are completely different from the Trainee's Wooden Puppets from the first task. You should be extra careful.
How was it?
Our techniques handed down from ancient times...
You are the first outsider to who has ever advanced this far.
[Geppetto]... We didn't even let him see the Cursed Soldiers.
Reward:
  • Experience: 400,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

12.Righteous Fame

[Geppetto] had a very innocent look now that I think about it.
And whenever he saw someone less fortunate than him, he would give his all to help them.
Even though he looked different from us, his heart was as warm as any of ours.

~
Such kindness can bring a person great fame. Why don't you show me your kindness?
(Show your kindness to opponents in the Sparring Hall or Free League by beating them up and earning Fame.)
Mission: Earn Fame Points (100/100)
It is no easy thing to help others, is it? But small acts of generosity make the world go 'round.
Reward:
  • Experience: 200,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

13.Chosen Warriors

What?
What did you say?
Did you say that [Geppetto] already possesses his own [Permanent Powersource]? And he has successfully managed to create automated puppets?
Oh... that is good, so good...
How could he do it all by himself?
It must have been so difficult...
Actually, he once had a precious wife.
But he said that he lost her to some unknown disease.
In order to keep a promise to his wife, he was traveling all around the world to discover a way to make an automated Wooden Puppet.
~
Oh... I keep thinking about old times.
...
Please sit and wait while I think.
Mission: Sit (Shortcut X)
Whew. Where do I begin?
Reward:
  • Experience: 300,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

14.Fourth Task

In fact... you might have noticed this...
I liked [Geppetto].
I liked his blue eyes and fair skin, but most of all I liked his hair, hair that reminded me of golden autumn field.
...
I laughed when he laughed, and I cried when he wore a sad expression.
...
Like that...
There was a time when I was a shy girl who would cry over nothing.
It feels as though a million years have passed, though. Hoho...
~
Here is your final task.
The descendants of Emei, who have mastered their emotions and who have practiced these martial arts since long before I was born, are waiting for you at [Training Arena IV].
Defeat them and bring me their [Trainee's Clothing Pieces] as evidence.
You are back.
I feel somewhat bad for those youngsters.
They are young and beautiful, but they chose the lonely path of the martial artist...
...
Now... there's only one task left.
Reward:
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

15.Wonderful Drug

Oh....
You are probably worried for the trainees who fell during your battle.
Don't worry.
We have plenty of ointments for cuts here.
~
Do you remember that Purple Potion that I handed to you?
You can recover your Outer Energy, health, and your Inner Energy, magic, at the same time if you use it.
Why don't you drink some?
Mission: Use Elixir [III] x1
How is it?
Do you feel like restored?
Reward:
  • Experience: 150,000
  • Gold: 500,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

16.In Search of Hua Tuo

You see, the reason we have such medicine is that...
This country had a world-renowned healer a long time ago.
He was so good that he could even revive the dead.
But I hear that he's now wandering the country to teach others his medical arts.
His name was [Hua Tuo].
Maybe he is in some other country.
~
What?
You know where [Hua Tuo] is?
Could you please tell me where he is?
(Hua Tuo is in the city of A------- on the Atlantis Outskirts.)
Mission: Answer [In Search of Hua Tuo] Question => Antillia
Ah... so that's where he was. How did you know that? I'm impressed.
Reward:
  • Experience: 200,000
  • Gold: 500,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

17.The Meaning of Rest

Well... my story is almost over.
One fine day, I confessed my feelings to [Geppetto]. I asked him to marry me.
...
But all he did was apologize and tell me that his dead wife had taken his heart away...
He said that I would someday meet someone better than him.
And he left, exactly the same as the day I first laid eyes on him.
I was heartbroken.
I changed my name to [Dingxian] when he left.
[Dingxian]... means "blocking one's feelings."
I decided not to give my heart to anyone. I suppose a woman can only truly give her heart to one person in her lifetime.
Maybe that's why... I focused on my training.
In the end, from the founder of Emei through to the trainees of today... none of the monks, including myself, ever marry.
Oh my. It's unfortunate, so unfortunate...
~
I think you need some rest. Sit here and tend to your wounds.
Mission: Fully heal your characters.
In fact, awakening one's dormant abilities and pushing beyond human limitations is no easy task.
The body must be thoroughly prepared to overcome great challenges such as demonic possession.
That is why you need rest.
I felt bad because I've put you through quite a lot of trouble.
It is important to sharpen your martial arts, but
training without rest isn't genuine.
I believe you will realize this someday, too.
Reward:
  • Experience: 150,000
  • Gold: 1,000,000
Monk Shixing got rid of the tigers and built [Fuhu Temple], and that was the start of the Emei denomination.

18.Final Task

Here is your final task.
This will be your most difficult challenge yet...
A [Guard Statue] will be waiting for you. It is a mechanical device and a symbol of the Emei Denomination that nobody has defeated since the Fuhu Temple was built in Mountain Emei.
~
Now go forth to your [Final Task] and defeat that Guard Statue.
Your training will be complete once you bring the Symbol of Emei from inside.
Please... be careful and good luck.
You're back.
The item you brought is the relic of Monk Shixing, the temple founder.
So the old story that the mechanical puppet with the likeness of Guan Yin of Fuhu Temple contained the relic was true after all.
And so the saying that the one who defeated it would save this world... might come true.
I'm sure your path will be full of troubles and difficulties...
But I pray that you won't forget that many people have hope for your journey.
...
Just in case...
If you meet [Geppetto] while continuing your journey...
Please tell him that a girl, who once admired and loved him even though he had different eyes and skin color,
said she is happy that his dream came true...
Thank you for visiting here.
I wish for there to always be hope on your path.
Please... take care.
