Jianghu Hustle #4 – Setting the Stakes; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

This time, we meditate at the peak of Mount Wudan in the hopes that we can learn to hold the Green Destiny in stillness. We’re talking about setting the stakes in wuxia stories through the lens of the all-time masterpiece of the genre, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. How much would you risk for the things you hold dear?
