Many thanks to all the Fellow Daoists who brought the second and third sponsored chapters of the week. Chapter 187 is the fifth guaranteed chapter of the week.

A note about returning characters in this special three-chapter release, plus a minor change to some terminology .....

(post updated with link regarding terminology changes...)

This chapter features some returning characters. A request was made on the forums to provide a cheat sheet to be able to review previous storylines ahead of time. I opted not to do that, because I think it would ruin the surprise too much. However, I have included footnotes with links to previous chapters for most of the major recurring characters. Therefore, if you REALLY want to review ahead, you can simply scroll down to the bottom of each chapter, click all the links, and THEN read the new chapters!

Some minor changes: "medicinal herbs" are now "medicinal plants." Also, while "pill concocting" as a verb will remain, the skill/ability to concoct pills will now be referred to as "alchemy."
