What happens when you mix delicious Chinese delicacies (点心 dim sum, or dianxin) with sensational Chinese martial arts adventures (武侠 wuxia)? You get the 点心侠 (dian xin xia) or Dim Sum Warriors, of course!
The Dim Sum Warriors have defended the Xiaochi Empire for generations and the very mention of their name makes their enemies quiver like silken tofu!
