double-edged dagger furiously named huge gate-tower pearl called light
darkness treasure fruit plum apple many vegetables mustard ginger sea
salted rivers fresh fishscales hidden depths feathers circling above fire
dragon emperor teaching phoenix royal official men beginning making
writing characters then uniforms, wearing robes clothing skirts expel
throne yield country yao tang has predicted console people strike down
