Welcome to Fairy and Swordsman

A humble English fan site devoted to Chinese Paladin (XianJian QiXia Zhuan) - both the classic Chinese RPG and 2005 television adaptation. We focus on the relationship between Zhao Ling'er 趙靈兒 and Li Xiaoyao 李逍遙 as well as actors Crystal Liu Yifei 劉亦菲 and Hu Ge 胡歌.

Good Bye ‘Xian Jian Fan Club’ (Chinese Paladin English Forum)

  • Posted by on July 1st, 2021 | Category: Site News

    Another sad news to share with everyone. After years running ‘Xian Jian Fan Club’ the only English forum dedicated to Chinese Paladin/XianJian series, the forum has been closed down for good.

    While the forum has been quite inactive for years, many fond memories were shared with the tight-knit community that was built. It was so exciting meeting other like-minded fans, primarily the English speaking audience from all over the world and sharing our love for this classic RPG and/or television series. Thank you for the memories.

    Behind the scenes, I struggled with a lot of technical issues running the phpBB forum over the years. Several years ago, the forum ran into spam bot issues. Everyday I would literally get 100s of new registrations with spammy fake accounts, who littered the entire forum with mass amounts of spam. The anti-spam functionality was frankly not working, and it was getting out of control. I had to restrict new members, and had asked visitors to manually send me an email to get their account activated. As you can imagine, this was a huge barrier to getting new members… though we did get a few during this time, it was not sustainable.

    The forum was later “upgraded” but I also ran into issues there. I was hoping an upgrade would fix our current problems but it didn’t. It also brought upon new problems for me, and I was unable to really update the forum (without running into tons of errors). All of this frustration combined with moving servers a couple of times had lead me to run a fresh new install of the forum. It end up breaking completely, and I was not able to retrieve our old databases…. And so, I have decided to close it down. I do regret not saving all our popular posts, and resources like game link downloads and resources though. If there is enough interest in the future, maybe I can put together a new post on this website.

    Anyway, I just want to say thank you to those who stuck around, who helped contribute to the community. It started back in 2006… that’s almost 15 years ago!

    I am also considering closing down our Twitter and Facebook account.. but whatever happens, this website will still be around. So feel free to reach out! Drop a comment or simply say hi :) Everyone is welcome here.

    Hi everyone, I hope you’re all doing well :)

    After 14 years being hosted under windy-goddess.net (and 6 years with chinesepaladin.org) we have now moved to hopefully our final home: fairysword.dearchibi.com

    There were many times when I considered taking this site down permanently since it hasn’t been updated in quite a number of years and we don’t get a lot of traffic either (the show is old, and it’s mostly for a niche English audience), but I always think back to all the hours and labour of love poured into creating this site, and for that alone I want it keep it up and running for as long as I could.

    So what does this mean for you? We aren’t going anywhere..! Along with our sister site Undying Love, we will occupy this little space on the internet to reflect and look back on for years to come.

    Crystal Liu Yifei photos added!

    Hi everyone, hope you are all doing well and staying safe at home during this uncertain time. I’ve added a handful of new photos of Crystal Liu Yifei, who you may know is the leading lady in Disney’s latest live action film Mulan.

    Please note we no longer run “ChinesePaladin.org” – someone else purchased the domain name after I let it expire in 2017. They then proceeded to STEAL all our content and material from this website, so please do not visit or support their site. Thanks!
