    I was reading pursuit of truth, and just realized something. The bald crane is obviously meng hao from issth. Maybe just some clone of his he made and forgot about, but they are definitely the same character. Meng Hao is hecka greedy, like the bald crane. Also, the runes in Pursuit of the Truth seem a lot like seals in other books. Meng Hao is a demon sealer, which would explain his familiarity with and skill at breaking runes/seals. Plus we know that Er Gen likes to show overlap between novels.

    I haven't read pursuit of truth yet, but there is a simple test here to confirm your theory. Does the crane make anyone owe him money or something ? If yes, then bingo.

    Pursuit of the Truth was written before ISSTH, and the events happen before ISSTH too

    pursuit of truth is supposedly before the ISSTH. devil in the end was supposedly the su ming from pursuit of truth.

    The order the books were written if im not wrong is Renegade Immortal-Beseech the Devil(Pursuit of the truth)-I Shall Seal The Heavens-A Will Eternal-Latest Book that i dont know the name of. So yes you are wrong.
    As for who the devil etc is its
    Su Ming-Devil, Wang Lin-God, Meng Hao-Demon, Bai Xiaochun-Immortal. The Ghosts identity is unknown.

    also remember Lord Third and Lord Fifth got an feather which can transform them. I guess it was the bald crane's feather. afterall he was able to transform so well here in pursuit of truth.

    Doesn't work timeline wise. Su Ming was the second to transcend, the ghost was first, Wang Lin was the third while Menhg Hao was the fourth so unless Meng Hai went back in time for whatever reason, the crane has no relation to him

    Well the only way i can answer that is to spoil the overall plot of awe as well as its ending and extra chapters so i cant really say anything.

    yes.
    in issth, it was heavily implied that ah ran away from AH to a place that is as far as possible away from AH. the AH in issith is a clone.

    he eventually took over the universe that ri/btd/issth was in and while he is immortal, his body was not so he went crazy watching his body rot or something like that.

    that said, we can safely believe that the place AWE takes place at is far, far away from the rest of novel since AWE is set at the place where AH was born.

    in the epilogue, one of MH karma writs somehow floated to AWE tho
