This refers to the world and setting for Wuxia characters. It literally means "Rivers and Lakes". Jiang Hu folks include swordsmen and others who form their community such as peddlers, medicine-men, beggars, monks and peasants. They exist outside the rule of law. But they have their own unspoken code of honor. They can belong to a sect or martial school or even monastery, but loyalty and honor remains the main values.
