Sect Novels

Sect Novels
I am a big fan of the "sect" genre. Here I will list a few of my favourite novels of the genre. These novels

- feature a protagonist that is a cultivator of a sect

- describe the development (or decline) of the sect

- involve master/disciple and seniority-based relationships

- play with the passing of passing of time and span across hundred of years

At the bottom I also list "false friends", novels which don't fulfill the promise of their title and fall short the glorious genre of sect novels.

[The order is random, but I read and enjoyed all of them for at least 1000 pages.]

THIS is what a sect novel should be like. The MC not doing anything besides cultivating, time flowing like water...

NOT a sect novel based on my definition. Even though it has the word Sect in it's title.

Another "not sure if it is a sect novel or not". We got a master-disciple relationship and age-progression, but the "sect" only consists of a... more>>

I guess this one counts? The MC is a solo cultivator, but he is part of a few sects throughout his journey.

Another one of those "I guess this counts?" sect novels. The MC is part of a sect and talks about how he wants to resurrect his sect, but for the most time his sect doesn't play a role. There is also mentions of master-disciple relationships, but they don't play too big a role either. Still, it has the time-progression and base-building plots going for it.... more>>

Not sure about this one. Based on my strict definition it fails the "passing of time" part and progresses way too fast, but I guess... more>>

Another _almost_ sect novel. The MC is part of a temple but mainly focuses on solo-adventure. It however has the passing of time, the ephemeral... more>>
