"Valley of Xuanyao"
The Wen people wandered out of the dry lands of western China in ancient times, following a magical deer who it was said was the avatar of Liu Liliu, the deity they worshipped. This deer led the Wen to a place called Yali, which had abundant natural surroundings and rich soil. Here they built the statelet of Wen.
In around 800 B.C.E., the more powerful Kingdom of Zhou defeated Wen's leader, Ma Lan, in battle, and invaded the smaller state. Thus, the Wen people came under the rule of Zhou. This is the setting for our story, where General Guan Wu, a copiously battle-scarred warrior hailed as a hero in the expedition against Ma Lan's forces, and Dan Lizhen, a recently anointed aristocrat, set off for beautiful Yali. Lizhen, a hard-headed idealist, is ordered by the general, for whom he has the highest admiration, to search the Valley of Xuanyao, a sacred site for the Wen people. Nominally, the purpose of the mission is to root out the remnants of the Wen who still follow Ma Lan, but a secret proclamation by the King of Zhou sets the valley's gold as the objective. Lizhen, utterly unaware of the king's designs, one day comes upon the deer representing Liu Liliu. He follows the animal until he encounters a Wen man. Lizhen has found the Valley of Xuanyao! Along with the man, Lizhen also meets Tong Hua, a Wen woman and dancer. Unknown to Lizhen, however, is that these two people of Wen are about to alter the trajectory of his fate. Great ordeals followed by great hope await Lizhen, who for now remains loyal to the King of Zhou.
