09 One down


Mouthy: 20
Conora: 13 + 2 = 15
Brutus: 14
Young One: 11
Khine: 6 + 1 = 7

Mouthy spins from the blow from the wooden end of Khine’s spear, catching himself on a nearby wall before he falls prone. He spits a glop of red into the dirt and, through the mental haze of having his bell rung, looks at the woodskept man that struck him. No, barely a man. A kid, really.

Kid or not, he was going to pay for that.

Mouthy draws his shortsword and lunges at Khine with a growl. Attack 4 + 3 = 7 vs AC 12. Khine circles around the blade, bringing his spear down into a defensive posture.

Conora notices the newcomer as she parries and moves around the two attackers and wonders, briefly, why a street rat would get involved in something like this. Not that she didn’t appreciate the distraction, but now she’d have to worry about his safety as well as her own. She feints towards the Young One before striking out at Brutus. Attack 13 + 5 = 18 vs. AC 16. She finds a weak area in his chain mail. Not enough to down him, but enough to make a red welt blossom in his undercloth.

Brutus winces with pain but continues the offensive. “That’s the last one of those that you’ll enjoy, harpy.” Attack 12 + 3 = 15 vs. AC 17. The blow meant for her neck dings harmlessly off Conora’s chain armor.

Young One, clearly thrown by the attention that the battle was bringing, plus the addition of the new combatant, hesitates briefly before resuming a series of strikes. Less confidence in these, Conora notes. “Just … let us … leave …” he says, breathlessly. Attack 2 + 3 = 5 vs AC 17. Conora easily steps away from the swings, which were way too weak to have done much damage even if they had connected.

Khine circles to the outside of Mouthy, keeping all three guards in his view. His movements are catlike; smooth and precise, with sudden bursts of motion. He strikes again at the guard with the enhanced end of his spear. Attack 18 + 6 = 24 vs AC 16. Mouthy believed that Khine was going to stab him through, only noticing too late that the blunt end came around to strike him on the non-wounded side of his face. Damage = 5, non-lethal. Mouthy makes a bruhhhh sound before collapsing hard into the dirt.
