Beggars’ Sect History[edit | edit source]
No matter which Dynasty you come from, there will always be beggars. The Beggars' Sect is also one of the supporting pillars in defending the country from foreign invasions. This caused them to become one of the largest righteous schools. Their leader carries the revered “Dog Beating Staff”as a symbol of his authority and position. The most notable martial art of the Beggars' Sect is the Eighteen Dragon Subduing Palms. People from all walks of life join the Sect, including scholars and military officers. As such, the martial arts of the sect are rather diverse. Due to the large size and nature of the school they have a wide network of communication and the members have a reputation for their excellent information-gathering skills.
The members adhere to a strict code of conduct and maintain the utmost respect for their ranks. Each member carries at least one pouch-like "pocket” and the number of pockets he/she carries indicates his/her rank. Elders carry nine "pockets" each. They uphold justice and help those in need through acts of chivalry. In Age of Wushu, we focused on the details of the Beggars from their clothing to their spirit, to emphasize their love of freedom.
