Plot Line:

You were selected or sent at birth to train at the Lotus Blossom School of Martial Arts in Ancient China. Here, you are trained for your future, whatever you choose it to be. Here, you will choose the path of the Open Palm, or the Closed Fist. There is something strange going on at the school, an unexplained tension. The talk of Demon stories are spreading. Some students are disapearing, no one knows why. (The rest is up to you)
Who will stand by you?
What will you learn?
What path will you take?

What you need to know:(This is in fictional Ancient China, with an emporer and everything. There are dorms, 2 girl, 2 boy. I will tell you which one you are in when I accept you :D )

The Two Paths:

Path of the Open Palm: This path is basically good, and help the ones who need help, but so they can learn how to take care of themselves in the future and can help themsleves. The Path of the Open Palm is also known as the 'High Path'

Path of the Closed Fist: This path is mostly associated with evil, but there is a difrence. If an evil person saw a homeless person begging for food, he would leave the man to starve out of evil. But one of the Closed Fist would leave the man becuase he should be able to take care of himself. Not just out of evilness. This is also known as the 'Low Path'
