Rules & Traditions

Equal Exchange

Take as much as you need, give back as much as you take


Using seniority to snatch from a junior is forbidden and any such action will face serious repercussion from the rest of the members. A transaction between members must be consensual or there will not be a transaction at all. If a member refused to sell a certain item, nobody else may force the member to sell it against the member’s own will.

Games

The members are known to play online games such as Farmville. Stealing vegetables are a good way to establish relationship amongst the members.[2][3] Trading game equipment also encouraged.

Quests

Seniors in the group occasionally will issue quests or missions for juniors. Upon the completion of the quests, rewards will be given accordingly, based on difficulty and how well they complete them. More difficult quests have higher rewards compared to those with lower difficulty.[4]

Fifth Stage Spirit Sovereign

When they were a Fifth Stage each member has seven dragon marks or higher gold core. However, the number of members with eight dragon marks didn’t exceed ten.[5]

Those who has six dragon marks or less will leave the group on their own volition.

When Song Shuhang and White became the Ninth Heavenly Ways, the members received a sticker patch on their respective gold cores, making all members of the chat group have nine dragon marks. This in turn make them have a very high chance into becoming an Eternal Life Being in the future.

Some of the members were allowed to choose a sticker of their liking, while some of them were given customised sticker by White such as:[6]

Each member also given a specialised background music by Song Shuhang.

Knowledge Sharing

A person’s wisdom is limited


Despite the members are known as geniuses, they are well aware of their own limitations and the possibility there is someone who knows what they don’t. Who knows it isn’t important, but what he knows is important. As such, its pretty normal for the members to learn from anyone, even from an unknown mortal, without any prejudice at all. Their pride and ego wasn’t at stake at all if they openly acknowledge they don’t know about something or someone is better than them.

This attitude allows them to grow, by continuously learning, gathering and sharing knowledge, rather than believing themselves as omnipotent and omniscience. Whenever they have a gathering, the members usually take the chance to ask senior members to dispel their doubts or solving problems in their cultivation, something the seniors happily obliged.

Out of Topic

Discussions between the members will randomly skewered to random new topics in a heart beat, much to the consternation of Yellow Mountain.

Privacy

Each member has their own quirks and unique element. Others may not pry into a member’s privacy without permission.

Reminiscing & Complaining About Song Shuhang

Ever since Song Shuhang joined the group, its became a custom for the rest of the members to reminiscing about the hardship they suffers during their cultivation, especially the loose practitioners and monster cultivators.

Every time they met him, they dreaded if he opened the mouth and told them he already promoted to another stage in the short time since their last meeting. Due to him, they have increased their cultivation time and spend less time doing anything else.

The Tractor Race was conceived by Venerable White because he enjoyed driving around on a hand guided tractor that had been among the large number of vehicles that Yellow Mountain had provided for him to play around with.

Dharma-Ending Battle

Main article: Dharma-Ending Battle

The film production was initiated by Song Shuhang, at first as a lie to his father to justify his ownership of many luxurious cars, and afterwards to placate White’s anger due to the Senior White Expression Package.

There rest of the members participate partly due to pitying Song Shuhang’s plight and largely because they are bored and have nothing better to do.

Immortal Food Feast

A regular event where Separated Snow, an immortal chef will plan out and cook a large feast for her fellow cultivators. Invitations to this are hard to come by, and many will pay great prices for tickets to the feast.

Seventh Promotes Eighth Black Dragon Tribulation

Main article: 4 + 28 Black Dragon Tribulation

28 members mistakenly joined Shuhang’s Seventh Promotes Eighth Black Dragon Tribulation in nascent spirit form while another two joined physically.

Vying for the Heavenly Way IX

In the alternate timeline where Future Soft Feather and Big Tyrant Song came from, the members of the Nine Provinces (1) Group participated in the Vying for the Heavenly Way IX.

During the vying that took thousands of years, the Nine Provinces (1) Group fought against the combined forces of the Fourth Heavenly Way and the Eighth Heavenly Way. Through out the vying, the members fell one by one until only Big Tyrant Song and Future Soft Feather were left.

After Song Shuhang became a Transcendence, he went to the alternate timeline and resurrected the members of the Nine Provinces (1) Group in their respective immortal residence. Yellow Mountain was the first member resurrected.

Nine Serenities

After the ascension of the Ninth Heavenly Ways and the Ninth Rulers came into being, the members were able to go back and forth to the Nine Serenities World as they wished. This was due to the fact that all the current Rulers of the Nine Serenities are from the same side.

Trivia
