    It is weird, crazy, and complicated for sure. Make sure your bed rooms have one door and facing south!

    Yeah there's nothing quite like it. Definitely some similarities to Rimworld, definitely to Dwarf Fortress, but it's its own insane beast. That video that was just linked is 35 minutes long and it's honestly 90% just describing the mechanics the entire time. There's so much stuff.

    Oh wow, a wild DLC has appeared: Immortal Tales of WuDang. With a 1.2 update too!

    The DLC adds a turtle snake pet!

    Also a new cultivation law that sounds very fancy/complicated -- Law of Nimbus conquest:
    One can get this law from the Golden Hall in Golden Peak of Wudang if the requirements are full filled.
    It is a supreme law created by the Perfected Warrior, which is created by Yin and Yang, can be powerful if you can handle its special mechanism.

    Yin and Yang Transform:
    The inspiration of this law has a Yin and a Yang parts. Manuals in these two parts are designed according to the idea of Yin and Yang conquering, transforming, and generating each other.
    In this law, there are more than 30 new manuals. Every manual improves some abilities but reduce others at the same time. The corresponding manual in the other Yin Yang side is completely the opposite.
    If one only learns manuals from only Yin or Yang part, its major properties will be highly enhanced meanwhile lose minor properties.
    If one learns both Yin and Yang part, although the effects of the two Yin Yang manual will counteract each other, the cultivator can understand deeper mysteries from the combination of Yin and Yang, and then learn advanced manuals that essentially improve the character’s abilities from the basic.

    Yin and Yang Path:
    Cultivators learning this law are separated into Yin and Yang as well. When learning manuals, inspiration needed is base on the Yin Yang property of the five elements of the manual. After the manual is learned, the attainment gained will be added to its Yin and Yang part. This mechanism reduces the inspiration needed by characters greatly, giving them larger growth space.

    Yin Yang balance:
    The abilities of characters learning this law change with the Yin and Yang attainment proportion. When one’s Yin and Yang attainment is in a chaotic imbalance, its abilities will be reduced. After the Yin and Yang proportion reach some specific state(eg. Pure Yin, Pure Yang, Yin Yang Balanced), its abilities can also be reborn and improved.

    Yin and Yang sub-spirit
    When a character reaches the Primordial Spirit state with this law, it can train a special Yin Yang Primordial Spirit. When in combat, primordial spirits split up and act simultaneously with infinite power.

    Quite a lot of other stuff too -- items, an entirely new sect, and a new mountain to explore. It looks like a substantial amount of the content is based on The WuDang Mountains in China.

    Interestingly enough WuDang is also sometimes pronounced Wu Tang, and in a very roundabout way indirectly inspired the name of the Wu Tang Clan.

    You know I was honestly hoping that was the case, and it was hard not to slip that in somewhere. Good to know!

    Yeah, its in a really indirect way though.

    Traditionally Chinese martial arts are either associated with Taoist origins (such as Tai Chi or Wudang Sword techniques) or Chan(aka Zen) Buddhist origins (such as the various forms of Shaolin Kung fu/wushu). Legendarily Taoist martial arts were invented by a Taoist monk named Zhang Sanfeng, who studied in the Wudang mountains. This is almost certainly apocryphal, but because of it those styles are often referred to as Wudang martial arts.

    In 1983 in Hong Kong a movie called “Shaolin vs WuTang” was made about a Shaolin style school and a WuTang style school of martial arts that were rivals but joined up against a greater threat. The Wu Tang clan were fans of Kung Fu movies, and took their name from the movie (and featured clips from it on many of their albums).
