They suggest that he use his privileged status to drive the Manchus out of the Central Plains , and assure him that he will remain as the emperor after that. The emperor reluctantly agrees and swears an oath of alliance with the heroes.

He meets Huoqingtong and her younger sister, Kasili Princess Fragrance.

Of any jury of presentment or the like, if such there were, nought remains to tell.
A court must be full to give judgment.
The person upon whom the burden of proof fell, must prove his innocence according to the prescribed method, and as in other Teutonic law systems, the oath seems to have played a great part here. With its forms we deal later on. But the ordeal and the judgment of battle was enjoined in some cases, though we do not know the details. The ordeal described is one in which a woman is accused of adultery and offers to purge herself, the ordeal proving her innocent, her accuser also a woman is put to the same proof and fails.
The oath as in later times is taken before the ordeal. The lady has the right of denying the charge by champion, but has no champion to bring forward. The ordeal is public. The words for fixing and calling a moot and a battle are the same, 'heyja' or 'leggia' or 'stefna til'; both meetings are to decide moot questions.
The classification of wounds is necessary in early systems of law where compensation must be adjusted according to it. The deadly wound or mortal wound is 'ben,' used chiefly in the plural 'benjar. With this branch of the subject that of punishment is closely connected.
Tacitus, who notices the division of crimes among the early Teutons, speaks of flagrant crimes being exposed by hanging the culprit, disgusting ones hidden away by drowning the offender. But here the reasons he gives are his own, and they are far too late in sentiment to be true: the real reason surely is that such criminals, if men, were sent to Wodan, if women were given to Ran or Hell, the men were sent to the gallows, the women to the pit or fen.
The pit and gallows stood on the west of the moot-places or the prince's hall ready for use. The execution of such offenders by sacratio originally was regarded, we suppose, as purging the nation of any guilt or sin that might be imputed to it for thier offences. The gallows were horse-shaped, not of the modern conventional signpost-shape, hence the metaphors of 'riding the gallows,' 'riding to Woden,' and the like.
