Duel on Mount Taiyuan

Pure wuxia in the style of Louis Cha (Jin Yong), Gu Long, and Liang Yusheng. No time travel. No xianxia. No RPG elements. Just old school tales of the Rivers and Lakes.

If you like Crouching Tiger and Hidden Dragon, Hero, and old school Kungfu movies, then you’d want to sit down, grab some tea, and enjoy this vast world of handsome swordsmen, beautiful maidens, and lots of treacherous villains.

Ouyang Yaoyao learns the immutable law of the martial world when her father, the great General Ouyang Shan, has a past that catches up to him. His late nemesis’ son, Ling Feng, abducts Yaoyao to force a duel to avenge his father. Feng escapes with Yaoyao to a nearby mountain where the heavy snow forced the two to shelter together through winter.

Feng and Yaoyao learn to trust one another in order to survive the harsh environment and grow close. One day, the young swordsman reveals an astonishing secret about her father’s dark past. The snow is melting, and the day of the duel approaches. Between love and loyalty, righteousness and family, Yaoyao must choose.
