Xuan-Yuan Sword (Chinese: 軒轅劍, essentially Sword of the Xuan-Yuan) is a collection of Taiwanese role-playing computer game for computers created by the DOMO Studio (DOMO小組/ 多魔小組) of Softstar Home Entertainment Inc. (大宇資訊) based in Taiwan. The video games integrate components of Chinese folklore in addition to historical figures and events.
In time immemorial, the Xuan-Yuan Sword was possessed by Yellow Emperor of ancient China to defend the ancient Chinese against the warlord Chi You as well as his hostile subjects. After Chi You’s loss, the future for the five-thousand-year-old history of China was safeguarded, as well as the Sword was handed down from Yellow Emperor to future generations to remain to defend the world against wickedness. As a result of its world power, the sword was commonly sought by treacherous people to further their own ends.
A reoccuring thing of the series is the Beast Fusion Vessel (Lian Yao Hu, 煉妖壺), developed by the goddess Nüwa in emulation of the Immortal Development Ding (造物仙鼎) to clean the world. Within the Vessel stays a never-ceasing entity called the Spirit in the Vessel. The Vessel’s powers are to take in nonhuman animals, and also to alter them into other animals or items.
