  1. +/- on a roll is pretty much bottom tier if it costs a single action for that +/-1 modifier. Compared to the action to prevent/deal 1 damage it's trash and no one should bother using the +/-1 modifier. _____________________________ Talents could be interesting, but keep in mind that a talent for an AoE heal that allowed an action to heal 4 targets for one point of damage each would under the current system be giving 4 actions for the price of one. And if three actions are rolled then that's a possible equivalent twelve actions on a turn. This could break the game quickly.

    TOP RIGHT ______________________________________ Ed grunted as Blitz gashed him pretty good as the pair of saevion crashed through their formation. If not for the fact that the creature had made contact AND actually drawn blood Ed would have missed the chance to latch on completely. As the creature thundered past a thin shadow stretched between them connecting Blitz's shadow to Ed's. But as good as his tag was the speed of the creature stopped him from solidifying his hold. That shouldn't have mattered. Ed felt a chill go through him as the pair came to a halt in front of the.... They couldn't possibly be that..... If there was any doubt that there was some being pulling the strings and actively fucking with them, it was dispelled the moment the pair of saevion came to a halt right in front of the wagons. All the knowledge he'd been aware of indicated that these were at their core simple if formidable beasts. Not willing sacrificial pawns intended to bait a withering amount of gunfire into the wagons. Because as phenomenal as his current companions reaction times were, that was the only thing admirable about the situation. The top right quadrant was full of either automatic weapons or squads of soldiers. None of which had one hundred percent accuracy in respect to every shot they took. But as viable as accuracy through saturation was for hitting a target, those missed shots didn't simply disappear. Oh no. Every bullet eventually hits something. At this rate more damage would be done to the wagons by the pair of creatures just standing there taking the onslaught than if everyone had just ignored the beasts and let them headbutt the wagons to their hearts content. Saevion were large and powerful beasts. Their shadows on the other hand were neither of these things. In fact, this was about to be one of those moments where magic bends physics over the table while cackling maniacally. Rather than shadow simply being cast from the physical, shadow moved the physical as the tethered Blitz was flung at speed into Charger. Hopefully, it would knock the both of them off their feet and prevent an immediate second charge. "STOP SHOOTING THE WAGONS YOU ABSOLUTE FUCKWITS!" Was this why Yh'mi had remained unconquered for this long? "Just give me a few companions smarter than a horse... it's all I ask." As phenomenal as a working firearm was purported to be, once the enemy got past their lines how could one reasonable expect to employ them without putting rounds into the spaces occupied by the other quadrant teams? Or even the wagons they were meant to protect? At least one guy was bright enough to toss a fireball. That would at least only explode where it was intended. @Lawman@Tyler @zackrobbman @Grubbistch @EpicRome23 @notmuch_23

    Stalking. Sneaking. Whatever the faults of the old leather armor Akiris wore, the ability to remain silent wasn't one of them. The mercenary was careful, took his time, and let his target bleed. SO far there was no rule as to time limits to a match and Akiris resolved to maximizing his chances at a throw. Yeah, a throw. Swimming across the drink to get at the water user wasn't going to happen. His brain didn't go the way of his sword after all. But as is was it was impossible to get close.... He'd have to arc his throw... That would lengthen the travel time and as she was swiveling, even in a panic... Well, she just has to not see it coming right? Picking his moment, Akiris threw his brick with the intent to crush the girl's skull. It was one of those throws that the moment you released it, you knew it was on course. He'd thrown it when Teresa had turned, but even though she'd turned back before the brick hit Akiris had taken cover once more and the brick was outside of her field of view. Above it. Falling down. And landing with a sickening crunch... at least to most of the audience. Akiris was more pleased by the splash of something falling. If the brick hadn't done the job by itself Akiris was more than happy to let her drown. The match could end just like that.

    Everything hurt. Akiris had once marveled at an invention called a washing machine. After gaining a solid appreciation for the plight of the clothing his admiration could only grow, specifically in the case of why the device was designed to be an enclosed space. Searching for his sword was going to be a lost cause. His left arm still felt jarred from where the edge of his shield had struck multiple somethings and torn free of the straps. His helmet was.... ... Akiris pulled the now ruined thing off. He'd lost quite a bit in the wash and even if he didn't there was no ercaniron left in the off chance that mage had another spell like that. Honestly, if this was reality then this would be the point where he'd sneak off and call it a day. Why? Bad risk. But here and now that didn't apply. Due to the nature of the contest. Neither side had anything to lose and everything to gain by fighting to the bitter end. So why not? Akiris didn't have much to work with. One of his knives had survived and there was a generous selection of broken masonry... but... unlike when he had loaded in his opponent currently had no idea of his location. Plan A was to do his level best to sneak up on a hopefully wounded girl and brain her with a brick. Might even have to be a throw. Heh, betting everything on a brick. Only in VR. ((Going to roll and consult the D6. Odd for Akiris and Even for Teresa.))

    Ed wasn't a stranger to the bizarre kind of requests. Acting as a broker for any amount of mages tended to put one up to truly odd tasks in order to get the requested job done. Normally. His particular group and this request in particular didn't have many avenues toward completion. Finding enough acceptable targets in order to field test the rifle design. The things could shoot, yeah, but firing thirty shots into some trees was only a proof of concept. Not the stress test that Isidor felt the design needed. Seeing as she was apparently too busy to come down from Predators Keep herself and noticing the opportunity to shoot a bunch of creatures no one gave a shit about, Ed decided to bite the metaphorical bullet and head down to the nightmare. Meh, it didn't really deserve that level of bitching. Should he loot some nice pieces for the group to pick apart, the effort he'd be putting in now towards a payoff would be greatly magnified. So likely worth it. After all, it wasn't like he hadn't lived a life of taking risks. Some never panned out, but the few that did made up for them. The rifle in question seemed to materialize out of a shadowy cloud seeping from Ed. While to most shadows were what light cast, Ed was a user of shadow magic and this particular technique reversed the concept. Rather than the object obscuring the light forming the shadow, instead magic altered the shadow and thus revised the object. In simpler terms, this particular use of shadow magic allowed Ed to carry far more than mundane three dimensional space would allow. Or in the five year old version, Hammerspace. The uru rifle styled after what an outsider would recognize as an AK47 didn't stand out in contrast to Ed's attire. Long duster, cargo pants, boots, all very much black on black on black. Even his hair didn't escape the black color scheme. While his tanned skin and amber eyes managed to skirt the line and avoid the blackhammer, most would give him up as a lost cause to style far before mentally registering them. At one point, Ed remembered when he considered style in his manner of dress. A very long time living in proximity to mages who had an eye for all those little details and nuances that pushed practicality over fashion had slowly snuffed that old concept out. Would someone really come out to fight the monsters of Yh'mi in something like an armored sundress.... Ed forced himself not to look around. He could already imaging what Priscilla would say about a couple of the costumes... Yeah, maybe it was for the best he was here and not her complete lack of filter. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ((Top Right))

    Would destroy her like it did him? Possibly. But unlikely. Yes, body checking would move someone. It wasn't like Akiris stopped to laugh stupidly and let the fight reset. No matter. Akiris was more than used to being dismissed as an idiot. Funny enough, he hadn't turned into one because of it yet. There wasn't any self contemplation of this however. Because the micromanaged tidal wave crashed into the pair. The bag, clenched in Akiris' left fist and hidden behind the heater shield opened up as the wave hit spilling its contents. It could almost seem a trivial occurrence. What possible use could the contents of a small bag be in the face of such a massive display of magical might and precision that unbeknownst to Akiris was precise enough to guide water straight up his nostrils all the while battering him mightily? It mattered when the contents of the bag was ground ercaniron. Because sometimes normal pocket sand just wasn't a big enough fuck you. Akiris was sent tumbling when the tidal wave struck them and with the addition of ercaniron into the mix chaotic and uncontrolled didn't begin to describe the blow. While his runes were too off the wall to be translated into the system it would be an utter embarrassment if the techs didn't have a way to digitize and simulate standard Terren materials. Of course, depending on what each fighter sought to bring with them there were cases where some programming never got to see the light of day. Activate RNGesusprotocal.exe! Trading health wasn't a real world concept as consequences piled up and had to be dealt with. But here? The only condition was to win. And simply getting clobbered by an ercaniron chaos-ed tidal wave wasn't quite as bad as getting clobbered by an ercaniron chaos-ed tidal wave that you were micromanaging and due to your intensive and active control getting your internal magic easily infected by the chaos as well. How bad could that be? Well, the most basic aspect of casting a spell was ensuring that the magic that the energy passing out of the body did no harm to the body itself. It sounded trivial. It was. But on the other hand one could imagine how unpleasant it would be for example should the casting of a fireball spell char ones own arm in the process of being released. But now with the addition of ercaniron into the mix, all the the trivial things that could be taken for granted were thrown into the random chance of chaos. And there were vastly more ways for ill to happen than safety.

    There's a certain problem when your strategy requires you to be fundamentally faster than your opponent.... .... If you weren't your entire plan went uselessly up in smoke. The parry wasn't bad, but the thought behind it seemed to be under the impression that strength didn't play a factor into the equation. This is how you learned. Akiris was more than happy to force her blade away and out of the immediate equation. Now had Akiris tried to recover from the swing and send another slice at Teresa the result would likely be as she hoped. High in the sky and looking down her nose at others. Typical nobility. He didn't. Akiris' forward momentum didn't end with the overhand. Not being a fancy pantsy trained famously trained swordsman, he didn't make the usual error.... .....Of only relying on his sword. Without a blade to contest his immediate action, Akiris did an action both simple and effective. Body check. A brute action intended to possibly transition to a grab, or even a full blown tackle.

    Circling? What was that? The man was a mercenary, not a duelist. If there was some point in attempting to position his opponent in a certain way, then it might be considered. But there was nothing to consider past step one of two 'get close'. As the woman began to circle, Akiris shifted his movements as if to cut her off and then.... In the real world, Akiris' gear had his self styled abomination of runes that were designed to suck down and waste magic. He viewed it as an equalizer as being both lowborn and lacking outstanding natural talent was usually a death sentence for becoming a great or even a competitive magic user. So if he couldn't beat them at their own game then why play? As long as he could negate the magic being flung his way then his bladework would stay relevant. Talent was still an issue. Perfect runes that would do exactly what Akiris wanted would simply not only be too costly, but far outside of his ability to produce himself. So if the best he could do was produce trash quality runes then what screw ups would help? Now piled outside his competitor room was the end result of a little over a decade and a half of tinkering and additions. More runes, more ability to sap down greater volume and varieties of magic. But one couldn't forget, these never stopped being shoddy runes. What was stopping them from affecting the user himself? Nothing. Years of acclimation had trained the mercenary's body to endure the additional strain and even after all this time he'd never looked back and wondered if he should have given spells a go. Not when he had the luck of striking it big on his first job, and not now that he'd more of less transitioned into a habit of secure but well paying work. When this worked... why start back from zero? The runes were gone for now. But even with what was his constant companion missing, the feeling wasn't that he'd somehow become less. Quite the opposite. As one of the techs had explain in an 'annoyed at the dumbass' voice, Terrens weren't exceptionally tough 'just because'. There was a magical factor that enhanced the baseline humanity. And the magical equivalent of weights was no longer present. Step two. Go hard! Already close, the remaining distance between between the two combatants vanished in a nigh instant. Not merely an action of moving quickly before stopping in place to swing. This lunge was accompanied by the downward steel tinged blur of an overhand swing with the physical strength of Akiris' newly unfettered magical power behind it. Some kind of spell? No. Even the simplest would be too complicated for what this was. I'm going to hit you with my sword. To try to explain it, the concept would seem foolish. But if it was stupid and it worked was it actually stupid? This was a man who had accidentally trained what magic he had to conform to the actions of a common mercenary. If there was some kind of magic working from his opponent that the mercenary had missed, oh well. He'd endure. Since there was no risk of death or injury he might as well close to melee were he was best.
