The Deva Tripitaka and his group of companions journey westward in search of the fabled (trans)scriptures that contain great knowledge. He comes a pair of great gates through which he must pass. As he approaches the threshold, an immortal appears upon the ramparts.
"Who goes there?"
"We are but humble travelers in search of the fabled scriptures. Oh mighty lord, please let us pass."
"I see. However, such is not the will of the Jade Emperor. Perhaps with a suitable payment I might look the other way."
""By the will of Great Aleph, we must pass. We have little to offer. I humbly beseech you to let us through."
"Then begone, or I shall have my men seize your belongings by force."
"You leave us no choice."
Eight-Pigsy spies a leopard demon perched high, ready to pounce and smites him first. A spirit-wolf minion of the devious immortal waits nearby.
