Not necessarily a failed taker of bureaucratic exams, though--having a falling out with one's instructor and mentor works just as well!  And as you say, mohism is an option.  :-)
Yeah, that's a classical reason to enter the world of Jianghu ;).
I'd like to ask you, though, what does your character want? In my experience, it's definitely easier if we know this.

I imagine his highest ambition is to find a nice cushy role as someone's trusted advisor on state matters, preferably in a wealthy land with good weather and beautiful women, where he can think profound thoughts all day without a care in the world.  This excellent ideal would be more easily attainable if only he weren't quite so principled...

Well, someone will have to get me the books, but I played a couple of the Dynasty Warriors games (go figure, my most recent exposure to Ancient China is a videogame, which is no real substitute), so I'm game.

But I call exorcist!

I think we are getting a classical Wu Xia mix here. Love, personal honour, ambition, thirst for knowledge, and who knows what else we are going to combine :D!
I'm looking forward to it!

I think we have enough people to make a start. I'll open an OOC thread a little later (only just home) and we can kick things around further there.

And Exorcists are fun. I played one myself. He was very good at spotting when the yin energy of a village was out of place, many times before the peasents there would even realise it themselves, and be only too glad to help clean things up in return for a some food, a bottle or two of something to warm you of an evening, a few coins perhaps, and who knows, maybe even a little company for the night. :)

I might be interested in this, but I have never played a game like this here. >.>

So, yeah, if you don't mind a noob... I would like to play. I would need some help however.

OOC thread is now up. We can move the discussion over there.
