Arena + Setup

The southern slopes of Mount Metagalapa. The mountain rises to the north and the peak can be glimpsed through the white halo of cloud. To the south the smoke from a village can be seen before the precipitous fall away to the scavenger lands below. The ground is moderately inclined and strewn with outcroppings of rock and low copses of trees. Around the village is scattered small plots of land to grow their meagre harvests. To the north west of the mountain is the capital with its eyries and valleys. To the north east lies a ravine and rushing stream. A light breeze swirls around the mountain from the north carrying the faint cries of the famous Metagalapan hawks.

On this wind blasted wasteland appears a large, brutish man wearing nothing but purple silk pants. Those with keen hearing can detect the faint sound of a ticking clock emanating from his muscular chest. He grunts and wipes his mop of black, dirty hair out of his eyes.

Some 29 yards away appears a Southern man dressed in loose fitting white desert robes, open in the front with thin gold embroidery along the edges of the fabric. Compact and slender, he is dwarfed by the other man's size, but his pale blue eyes flash with impending violence and show only a firm resolution.


Tick -1

Join Battle: Twice Clashing Lightning (TCL) A pitiful 3 successes.

Join Battle: The Horror Under Lock and Key (HULK) a remarkable 7 successes + 1 auto for Joy in Violence Approach and Wind-Born Stride x1

Tick 0

The purple panted man locks eyes with the stranger and roars a challenge, dropping into a low, uneasy crouch and edging forward. The roar is carried on the breeze to the nearby village where a baby starts crying and an old man dies with a terrified look on his face.

With a derisive smile that lasts for but a second and contains not a hint of humor, the white robed man speaks: "So you're the brute everyone is talking about. I can only hope you are as incompetent as you look."

HULK enters Guard Action Speed 3 DV-0 and starts Moving towards TCL.
TCL begins circling to his (TCL's) right, trying to maintain their distance.

Distance: 29 - 5 + 5 = 29 yards

Tick 1

Distance: 29 - 5 + 5 = 29 yards

Tick 2

Distance: 29 - 5 + 5 = 29 yards

Tick 3

"Fight me you coward. You are scared, yes?" rumbles the large man jumping to the top of a boulder and then back down, continuing his inexorable approach. "I will end you quickly if you fight with honor. To run like a coward just makes me... angry."

HULK continues his wary Guard Action Speed 3 DV-0 and keeps Moving towards TCL.
Distance: 29 - 5 + 5 = 29 yards (assuming TCL keeps backing away...)

Tick 4

Turning on point and hopping up onto a tree limb, TCL stops moving. "Ending quickly is far too poor an assessment of your skills. I wish to see your conviction to this path of destruction you walk."

If HULK keeps advancing, 29 - 5 yards = 24 yards.

Tick 5

"So, let us show off our Exalted martial prowess so that we may better understand each other. Let me see your form, the culmination of your essence as a Martial Artist. Here is mine." Crouching low on the branch, TCL leans forward, his eye's flashing eagerly, anticipating his opponents actions as the golden sun of Dawn wakes on his brow. A brief glow of light is seen from under the filmy swathing covering his arms, flowing with the colors of jade.

TCL Adopts Rising Sun Form. (5m Peripheral, Simple, Spd 5, DV -1)

"There is no... understanding! There. Is. Only. Rage!" His eyes become two blazing green wells of hatred, like windows to Malfeas. His anima flares like a bonfire of vitriolic flame as he grows to many times his previous size. His skin turns coarse and unhealthy like the streets of his patron. The rocks beneath the Slayer's feet shatter as he thrusts himself high into the air and begins to laugh. Hysterical. Maniacal. His laughter booms across the mountain like the gates of hell opening and he lands about Twice Clashing Lightning with a thunderous impact that shakes the mountain to its core. Again and again...

HULK drops the Guard action, activates his combo: Joyous Rage Abandonment... By Rage Recast, By Pain Reforged, By Agony Empowered, Retribution Will Follow, Joyful Cessation of Restraint (5 attacks with auto knockdown, +2 attacks if victim prone on 5th attack) and Leaping Smash Technique with Shock and Awe Slam on each attack (+6m/attack), option of Who Strikes the Wind? for 3m. Total = 2w+34m(+12m)(+3m/dodge).

Initial Negotiations

A space for the original conversation that set up the trial. This will probably be the first space filled in on a page, but it placed at the end because it becomes increasingly less relevant as the trial continues. This is where players will talk about which signs to use and so on.

Player Chat

I'll leave environmental description at the start to you, I'm kind of terrible with setting scenes... my players always complain. =( -Sabis

Environment set. :) nikink

IIRC, you can move even before you get to act during a combat, and as such I can move to maintain the distance between us, correct? -Sabis

That's correct to the best of my understanding. :) That's why I didn't go through too many ticks, I thought you might want to keep your distance. :) nikink

I'll show your mine if you show me yours... =) -Sabis

That's rude! I'll tell daddy Malfeas!!! ;) So, I'd say your stunt was worth two dice. This is gonna kill HULK if it doesn't work... he'll have bugger all hope of hitting you once you get the rest of your charms up, so this is his only chance, and it'll damn near bankrupt his motes... c'est la vie. :)

Observer Comments
