The Fight For Javan

Post by Archengeia on Tue Sep 08, 2015 9:32 am

Javan, Higaide, and technically Kolson are in this Initiative. The battlefield is in a side street some ways east from the main battle still raging between the Royalists and the Separatists. There don't appear to be any other people nearby. There are about 8 green-robed individuals, plus the poorly-dressed gentleman. Higaide has lunged into the fray, and Javan is in the very middle of it. Kolson might show up later depending on how long the combat takes.

It is Higaide's turn first.

Before i move, i need Higaide's insight here, please. How hard was it for him to toss that lady just now, and how confident is he that he can keep doing it without the element of surprise on his side?

The woman was clearly more of a mage type than a melee type and was relatively easy to toss.

Higaide will be focusing on targeting mage types, or otherwise not-too-heavy looking individuals, and tossing them at the more heavyset opponents, if i can be so discriminate.

If i'm forced to engage a heavy type, Flurry of Blows + Monkey Beats the Gong.

Again, nonlethal until i know what's going on here.

Higaide rushes up towards the nearest green-robed individual and flings them at one of the others successfully, startling both significantly. Of course, none of them currently appear particularly distinguishable from the others.

It is Javan's turn.

Javan, not really sure what's going on besides people flying into other people, is going to make an attempt to weaponize himself by taking a weapon from one of the people that are prone. If he's still able to do any other actions, he'll turtle up for now (-5 hit/+5 AC from combat expertise, bum is his target for dodge). And if you consider this a free action, he'll attempt to discover from where the vibration is coming with his element vision and knowledge, even if it can't be pinpointed exactly.

Javan rushes up to one of the prone people and quickly finds a familiar-looking silver sword, the same one that had bludgeoned his Scarf on the head earlier. As he's doing so his eyes finally raise to the distance and, at length, he spots something hovering just over the roofs a few hundred feet away. After a moment's confusion he puts two and two together and realizes he's staring at an Airship of some type, and his crystals are now vibrating visibly against his skin.

One of the green-robes begins shouting orders in an odd language that neither Higaide nor Javan recognize. Two of them begin channeling something that Javan probably recognizes as a summon. Spells begin flying around as the others, all Mages, begin focusing on bringing down Higaide. One of them lands a Slow on him but it will only last for 2 rounds. One manages to damage Higaide ffor about 12 Fire damage. Another hits Higaide for 12 Ice damage. And finally a third hits him for 18 Air damage. The 'bum' over on the side rushes up to engage Higaide in melee, challenging Higaide's position and managing to smack him once with his bare fists for 8 damage.

It is Higaide's turn again.

Higaide is down to 18 HP. Switching to normal damage, as my kindness is once again being exploited by the enemy.

Flurry of blows on the bum. Monkey Beats the Gong if applicable, and i certainly hope it does. Also, setting the bum as my dodge target.

Higaide manages a solid 3 hits o n the other gentleman, pummeling him to a bloody pulp and nearly killing him with this attack.

This leaves it Javan's turn.

Javan, hoping the resonation of his crystal had nothing to do with a forced translation to the airship, decide to target the yellow mage with a pair of reckless swings.

5-feet movement and fullround attack, power attack at max.

Javan, surprisingly, actually hits with one of his swings. In fact, he crits, which means that poor sod is very dead. (Javan may feel free to describe his brutal killing of the gentleman in question).

Regardless, two Aspects burst into the scene; one of Water, one of Earth. Both immediately go for Javan and try to subdue him, though even with both working in conjunction they are not able to successfully grapple or pin him. The Black Mages present, watching Higaide nearly kill a man despite being Slowed, immediately focus on casting their biggest spells at him. Sadly they roll complete crap, doing a total of 16 damage between them to him (seriously, I rolled so many 1's). The bum, nearly dead and barely hanging onto life, starts shouting something in an unknown language, as does the final combatant who hasn't entered the fray yet. A few seconds later there is a rather loud vibrating sound that causes everyone's bones to shake as the Corvette shifts its way over towards where the fight is happening, its guns bringing themselves to bare. Higaide and Javan both notice said guns are both focusing on Higaide, nto Javan.

This makes it Higaide's turn.

Oh. Uh... wow, i think dead is I, here. Well, let me try and make it as hard as i possibly can for them (yeah, right).

Higaide moves right into the middle of the largest concentration of green-robed people he can find, getting as close as he can and engaging those mages at point-blank range. Hopefully, he'll last longer against them that he will against those cannons, and he might just take a few of them with him. Wholeness of Body, to restore as much HP as possible right after moving - and if i can boost that with a Charge, go for it.

The dragoon missed his first swing almost as if expected from a warrior that mainly used spears. But in his anger, Javan decided to put all his effort in that one 'lost' swing no matter what. Keeping the momentum of the swing, Javan suddenly makes an whirlwind motion with his whole body. The silver sword finally finds it's target and cleanly slashes through the chest of his opponent, which dies almost instantly as their heart is cut in half by this brutal slash.

Higaide burns a Charge, healing himself for a total of 32 from the result as the elementan energy courses through him. This causes a bit of a backlash to the local Aspects, who are pushed back 5', and the two Green Mages look at him with what could only be described as fear. The resultant arcs of lightning also spurt into the sky some distance, an unintentional side effect that functions as a clear and obvious flare for anyone nearby.

It is Javan's turn, after butchering the poor fellow.

His anger having subsided enough and now better able to take the situation around him in full, Javan finally understands why the Corvette's guns are out, why he's not being target and that it was Higaide fighting on his side.

As such, Javan decides to use the resonation effect between himself and whatever is inside that ship to his advantage, keeping track of the corvette's position without having to look at it while still being able to deal with the combatants.

OOC:
5ft movement to closest target while staying between the corvette and Higs, then a single attack to closest target (combat expertise -4 hit, +4AC, dodge target is Corvette). I'll hold the movement to make sure Javan is in the way of the guns.

As Javan maneuvers into question, missing horribly at his intended target, before realizing that his increased proximity to the Corvette is causing his entire body to start vibrating like a localized earthquake. It's so difficult he's effectively at Disadvantage for virtually any rolls at the moment, and the amount of Air energy coursing through him has reached painful levels. The Corvette, nearby, appears to be struggling to stay airborn for some reason, and as it wobbles to and fro several shots fire out attempting to blast at Higaide, all of which miss by dozens of feet, knocking away huge chunks of the local architecture. The Mages present each seem to be taking a slightly different tact... realizing to some extent what's happening, the Black Mages all start focusing their fire on Javan, dealing 22 Fire, 18 Water, and 0 Air damage to him. The Yellow Mage is frantically trying to talk through some kind of device, though the hum and vibration is making hearing very difficult, especially since the Corvette's stealth engine mode just shut off, making the entire area like being directly inside of a tornado. The two Aspects in question have successfully grappled Javan, holding him between them and dragging him 5' towards the Corvette while their Summoners are busy trying to peck at Higaide's direction without intent to hit but rather to discourage.

This makes it Higaide's turn. As of now all actions will require a Concentration check to even attempt the action due to the noise, wind, and lightning.

Higaide goes for a grab at one of the mages and tries to throw him at one of the aspects restraining Javan.

Higaide, amazingly, fails at his attempt to fling thanks to the tremendous difficulty he's having concentrating right now. It is now Javan's turn.

Javan starts shouting in pain for help, although he's pretty sure nobody can hear it. His mind then tries to remember and/or extrapolate methods of either 'discharging' the excess amounts of elemental energies that are flowing between him and the Corvette right now or 'harmonizing' with it just enough in order to at least be able to get further away from the Corvette, all of that using his knowledge of the elements.

If he does find something that would help, he'll prioritize acting making it work. Otherwise, he'll do his damn best to just get away from the Corvette, hoping distancing himself will be enough to stop this.

helpful advice:
K, your throwing tactic isn't a viable means to defeat them. There needs to be a consequence from being thrown that impairs them significantly beyond what they can fix in one round of combat for it to have any use. They can get back up from a throw and still cast. Or, they can cast from the ground, it doesn't hurt how powerful their spells are. It also hasn't done much damage to them - and they're mages. You could do more fatigue damage with punches than lethal damage with throws. You could throw them at the corvette, but they might just grab onto it and cast from the safety of the corvette in the air. There's nothing worth throwing them into, unless you can stun them by hurling them into the sides of buildings. I'd highly recommend using their clearest, most exploitable vulnerability to your advantage by attacking them directly.

Meanwhile, where am I?

Rory last I checked was no where near the battle at all. Kolson, on the other hand, has just noticed the flares and as such is homing in directly on the spot. For the record, no one asked of course, but the Royalists do not actually have Airship power on their side at the moment.

Javan's knowledge of the Elements makes him realize that he hasn't encountered this particular circumstance before in his short life and in his studies, but if he had to hazard a guess he believes that his crystals are currently acting as a conduit for the strongest Elemental energies in the area (which happen to be Higaide and the Corvette) to... someplace else. What he does with that is entirely up to him of course.

Javan is still being constrained by two Aspects which are trying to drag him to the ground, and are likely about to unleash their Desperation attacks in... well, desperation. But since Javan technically still has an option to decide what to do with the K:E roll, the enemy turn will not happen just yet.
