    A Simple Spar

    Post by Ninetails on Wed Oct 15, 2014 5:28 pm

    18:00 (6 PM)
    OCTOBER 13TH, YEAR 5




    Sitting in the center of the field sat an innocent looking woman, kneeling down and in a praying position as her hands clasped together, waiting for her opponent. Though some knew of her real form and other human-esque appearance, she chose this form for many reasons. Not a lot of people knew of her, and she intended to keep her real motives and appearance to herself until the time was right. That would take a while, however, hence why she rarely ever left the beach-side. But, she needed to fight. She had to grow stronger and prove her strength to those around her, those who would dare to think of her as merely a weak demon who could do nothing. No... she wouldn't be having that. 'Rao' clasped her hands together harder in irritation at the thought, but her face remained calm and serene, almost.

    Before her was a long incense, burning softly and letting off a lavender sent to anyone nearby. She had limited arsenal in this form, but that wouldn't be an issue, this was a simple spar, after all. And she had not heard of this... Njorth person, before. They were mostly likely new and weak. Rao personally wished for a stronger opponent, but, as she had learned, she would not underestimate someone... too much, anyway.

    My Lord, are you sure you feel up to a spar? And in that form? Would you not feel more comfortable in a more familiar form? Tobi asked, far far from her position, all way on the isle that people could see, but no one could find. Of course, I have been cooped up far too long. A little spar will help me regain some strength. You know sitting idle for too long irritates me... I understand... fair well in your fight, My Lord. There was now silence, and Rao continued to wait for her sparring partner.




    The option of dice-swapping is available. Please state in your post before the fight starts whether you accept the offer or decline.

    Just as promised, Njorth started off on his way to the stadium right after closing up his shop for the day. As he reached his destination, he could only hope that he wasn't too late. Honestly, if there was anything he couldn't stand, it was a lack of punctuality. He had to be on time, and you could almost say that being on time was an obsession for him. Immediately, he took notice of the blurry shape of what he could only assume was a woman in the center of the field. This was probably his partner.

    Yes, this had to be her. Her blurry image became progressively clearer as he approached the praying woman. Instantly, the smell of her incense invaded his nostrils. The smell wasn't an entirely unpleasant one. He rather liked it, actually.

    "Excuse me, are you Rao?" he asked. "If so, I have a question before we begin."




    It doesn't matter to me, but dice swapping I'm fine with dice swapping if you want.

    "Excuse me, are you Rao?"

    An unfamiliar voice escaped into the air, and Rao opened her eye to look upon her opponent. Hm... an older man with a strange aura. He was still weak, probably someone newer, but this would be fine with her. Everyone was new at one point, and her first experience here had... humbled her, to a degree. "I am," she answered, standing up with a straight posture and looking directly at her opponent, almost as if she was trying to glare him down. This wasn't the case; Rao was more so figuring out what abilities this man had, as he obviously possessed something. This would be cut short, as he seemed to have a question for her.

    A question... hmm... "of course, you may ask me anything." What could it be? Maybe a request towards a new rule? Whatever the case, Rao patiently awaited to hear his question, and the spar would begin once they agreed.

    Ah, this was good. So he did have the right person. She seemed more than happy to answer any of his questions, too. This was also good. What the Nord needed to ask was a necessary one to ask if he wanted a fair, clean spar. A fair, clean spar was exactly what he wanted.

    "Yes, if I recall correctly, you specified that summons were not allowed. Does this only apply to certain types of summons, or all summons? I have a summon that conjures up a weapon. A battleaxe, to be specific," Njorth explained. "Would that be alright to use, or no?"

    Conjuring weapons, hmm?
    "So long as they do not attack on their own, I see no issue in conjuring your weapons." Especially since, later on, she'd surely be conjuring her own blade--but right now, she had prayer slips and a simple dagger at hand. Nothing fancy, but enough to get things done, specifically for this 'forme'. "Now then, if there's nothing else to ask, we'll begin." If he had anything else too ask, he should've made it quick and mixed with his previous question, as Rao was impatient this time around. Though she wanted to appear as a kind woman in this forme, it was hard to keep her antsy nature quiet; it had been far too long since she last sparred.

    The woman took a fighting stance and, within one swift motion, plucked a prayer slip from her chest and flung it at Njorth as a way to commence the battle. He was new, and Rao had her doubts she would lose. To her, this was basically a bout to see how long it would take for this man to fall as her confidence brimmed brightly.

    DP: 25/25

    Thwap!

    Rao played the prayer slip card, and smacked Njorth with much haste. This woman was a fast opponent indeed. He hardly saw the attack coming. This could be blamed in part on how unusual the weapon in question was. Cards, at first glance they appeared to be nothing more than cards. Of course it was now completely obvious to him that they were nothing short of deadly weapons. The Nord could spend time being fascinated by them later, though. There were more pressing matters to attend to, and those cards really smart!

    In that moment, both of his hands became encased in an ethereal aura. Said aura had an ice-like look to it. He took aim, and shot a rather intimidating-looking shard of ice at his opponent's feet. If she didn't get out of the way, it would shatter, leaving several smaller shards to cut up her legs.




    HP: 53/60
    AP: 9/11 (-2)
    Action: Ice Shard
    Specifics: 1d/2c ; only one coin needs to HIT for full damage. If both coins are HIT, opponent loses an attack during their turn due to extreme cold. EX: The opponent can only attack twice instead of thrice. Currently costs 2 AP.

    She gave a small, pleased smile as the man had no idea what had hit him. Her prayer slips looked like simple pieces of paper, but they were really quite lethal... especially to certain kinds of individuals. Though the man seemed more interested in the slips than he was with the pain he was no doubt experiencing, no matter how minor. She was surprised by this, and he retaliated with some kind of... ice-attack? Hmph, ice wasn't that annoying to her. She didn't mind the cold and she herself had ice abilities, but this wouldn't be the time to use them.

    Rao shrugged off the ice shards, despite the sharp pain they left in her legs, and quickly drew two more prayer slips to toss at the bearded man, too focused to make any comments or retorts.

    Though Njorth had managed to dodge the first of his opponent's next card tirade, he had still managed to get hit by the rest of it. The Nord winced in pain. What exactly were these cards made of anyways? He could tell that they were definitely going to be a problem for him. Perhaps he there was something he could do to make her lose them?.. His attention was drawn to the wall of the stadium, and it was then that he had an idea. Of course, that's it! He backed up a little, keeping Rao in his sight. You better not move!

    "FUS RO DAH!!!"

    Funny, he had almost forgotten what it felt like to do that. Truth be told, this was the first time he had done it since arriving on the breach. With luck, Rao would be smacked into the wall, losing her cards on the way down from her fall.




    HP: 46/60
    AP: 8/11
    Action:

    Unrelenting Force (disarm)

    --The first Shout that Njorth ever learned: fus (force) ro (balance) dah (push). It is also his favorite. It sends the targeted opponent flying, resulting in a rather painful fall.

    Specifics: 1d/1c ; if HIT, opponent cannot use a weapon during their turn. Currently costs 1 AP, three turn cooldown.

    Rao had been suddenly blasted halfway across the stadium grounds, and she had no idea how or why. It took her a moment to also realize that most of her prayer slips were either gone or blasted away. But that was fine... she could always make more, of course. For a moment, she stayed on the ground and feigned as if she had been hurt terribly, but she abruptly stood back up and merely dusted herself off. In her current form, she had little choice in weaponry and summoning her sword near the start of a bout just seemed so... 'desperate' looking. You can never give anyone the idea that one relied on a specific item, weapon or trinket in battle.

    No, she hushed those thoughts away and decided to perhaps surprise the man. Rao kept her footing well as she began to run back towards the man at a high speed and attempted to try a more physical approach. She stopped in front of him and ducked, swiping her leg from under his feet and then using the force of her palm to punch him in the chest to push him back. It was a simple fighting technique, but perhaps her roughness would become questionable.

    Njorth had easily sidestepped the first of Rao's retaliation. Just like before, though, he was hit with the second half. Luckily for him, it was easily shrugged off. For a moment, the Nord simply stood there, beaming with pride. It would have been wicked embarrassing if that didn't go his way, but it did. His Shout had hit its target, sending her flying and sufficiently scattering most of her cards all over the stadium. She couldn't possibly go looking for them now unless she wanted to make herself an easy target. The scruffy alchemist shook his head at the intrusive thoughts. He could be proud of himself later. Right now, there were much more important matters to attend to.

    Thinking fast, he attempted to punch Rao. It wouldn't matter if this attack succeeded or failed, however. What he was really going for would come next. He was going to attempt to trip her!




    HP: 45/60
