The Legend of Sword and Fairy

The Legend of Sword and Fairy (Chinese: 仙劍奇俠傳; pinyin: XiānjiànQíXiáZhuàn), also known as Chinese Paladin, is a game/media franchise created by Yao Zhuangxian (姚壯憲), and is developed by Taiwanese company Softstar. The franchise centers on a series of Chinese mythology-based role-playing video games, but also includes two live-action TV series adapted from the games. The eponymous first game in the series is published by Softstar's "Crazy Boyz" team (狂徒創作群) in 1995, and became both a commercial and critical success, and multiple sequels has been spawned due to its popularity. The video game series has since branched into other genres such as business simulation games and MMORPGs. It was regarded as one of the most iconic Chinese RPGs ever made.
