Between the two of them, only one quill is able to be located. Once upon the ground they blend in so well, it is no surprise that more could not be found. Tehn gives the quill to Taka.

Morning provides some fresh game, though small, in the snares, and time is given to preparing it. When drying the meat over a small fire is nearly complete, it is no strangely quilled varmint that draws attention away from the food, but something seems amiss.

Each man is struck with two javelins. The things are made from thin rods and tipped with stone heads. The weapons all prove ineffective at piercing the protective covering of each man. From hiding come six charging savages, never before seen, inky black, sparsely clad, Faethrins. Each is still wielding an additional javelin.

Angered, not frightened, Coldtree shouts, "A sneak attack before breakfast? There will be no mercy!" He will manipulate waylines to draw the heat from the closest attacking faethrin, hoping to freeze him to slow down his charge and keep him at a distance.

Taka sneers, but says nothing. He will charge to meet the nearest tribesman. His intent is to muddle his opponent as he approaches, and then slam his forearm into his opponent's windpipe.

... Coldtree shouts... draw the heat...
Tellerian Hawke said:
Taka... charge... muddle... slam his forearm... windpipe.
Tehn quickly retrieves one of the javelins that had struck him, not that he intends to use it, but to prevent the enemies from recovering it. Seeing that these skirmishers will try to use a launch and recover tactic without closing, he bends chemical waylines to affect one at distance with the enhancement of an ant pincher.

Mind: 10 - 1 = 9, dazed
The big man barrels down upon one of the hostile, who manages to slide to the side and avoid contact, at just the last second. The forethought of Lunnaya may prove helpful, for the enemy does move to recover a javelin after throwing the second, but there are still too many of the enemy. Another realization is that in addition to attempting to harm the enemy mystically, like Chi no Taka, it will be possible to physically assault one with each run by.

With a bit of luck, all mystically assaulted enemies are completely or almost completely unaffected.
GM: NOTE: Retrieving and breaking a javelin will be considered two separate actions and will supplant two physical assaults but does not interfere with bending.

Taka will continue to assault his opponent physically, trying to stomp his ankles, or perhaps a side-kick to the knee (whichever seems the most feasible.) At the same time, he will manipulate way at a distance to cause his opponent's javelin to heat up, hoping to turn it to ash, or at least make it too hot to handle.

Physical Assault: 82

Before any of the DWAC members can act a second time. All hostiles launch their second javelin. Taka, at this point, has suffered two significant stab wounds and is severely injured. In retaliation, he manages to kick the shin of a passing assailant, but the enemy keeps his footing. Making use of a counter tactic to the enemy's style of combat, Taka is, indeed, able to cause one of the reed javelins to ignite. This produces some unintelligible noises from the enemies, but none is cognizant of the cause.

Coldtree has taken two javelins, but has only sustained minor damage from them. In return, he is able to cause some very minor harm to one of the hostiles.

Guarding one of the thrown javelins, Tehn has avoided physical harm, thus far, and manages to barely clip one of the enemy with his saber during the run-bye, again causing some additional trivial irritation to the mind of his other assailant.

On a good note for the party, all enemies have thrown both carried javelins and must retrieve one to attack again. This will slow their next assault. Two of the 12 total javelins have been removed from use. One is burning. The other is underneath where Lunnaya is standing.

After launching their second javelin, the three hostiles who are not physically engaged by the DWAC simply walk away. Perhaps the impetuousness that promotes their hostility factors into their focus. There is no way to really know, but the three who lost interest were unharmed in any way and have calously abandoned half their number.

The other three have still inflicted more damage than received but look as if they may try to extricate themselves from the situation they caused. No language skill is exhibited from the psychopaths. They do not banter or discuss. They only make noises and clicks.

All remaining enemies must, again, retrieve a javelin. The one engaged with Taka is hurt and slightly dazed. The one engaged with Coldtree is irritated both mentally and physically. The one engaged with Lunnaya is slightly dazed and mildly hurt.

Seeing their loss of morale, Coldtree does not give up the attack. He intends to manipulate waylines to cause a burst of Sound against his opponent, using a piece of Slate to increase his attack. "No one walks away from ruining breakfast," he says.

Taka is equally unwilling to let it drop. He will siphon his opponent once more, and then attempt to punch him in the temple and knock him out.

Morale requires a person to have some concept of a future and a desire upon it. These psychotics, later learned to be Kaalatalae, the most primitive people of the land, have no such cognition. Having launched and retrieved javelins more than once, they simply lost interest in a prolonged fight that was lasting more than a few seconds. They do not even demonstrate a concern of being tracked.

Three of the hostiles retrieve a single javelin and walk away. The three others who cannot so easily extricate themselves, engage once more. Coldtree and Lunnaya are able to each harm one slightly more than they have received. With an incredible stroke of luck, Taka is not only able to incapacitate one, he is able to fully mend his wounds in the process.

Being on about equal footing with life force, Coldtree and Lunnaya are not suited to give pursuit but are able to dog long enough to continue manipulation until the target of Coldtree falls unconscious and the target of Tehn becomes incapacitated. Three enemies have been overcome. Three have departed.
OOC: All characters receive 5 DP.

Taka doesn't bother with the javelins, but he does check for trinkets alongside Coldtree. He will also lend whatever aid is needed for the accelerated healing of anyone's wounds.

Tehn looks at his tunic, pulling it away from his skin. "They sure did a number on my tunic. I am going to need this repaired or replaced when we get back to Midway."
Bending + Recover + d100
Coldtree: 21 + 36 + 61 = 118
Chi no Taka: 26 + 23 + 48 = 97
Lunnaya: 35 + 24 + 54 = 113
Time: 70 / (118 + 97 + 113) = 5 hours, 8 minutes
Time: 40 / (118 + 97 + 113) = 2 hours, 56 minutes
Full recovery will delay functional travel until after midday, and the camp is moved about an hour's very easy climb higher into the mountains. Gleaning the field and searching the bodies yields 9 total rudimentary javelins. The reed shafts are about the same as any other but the heads are fashioned from crude stone that is not even any special mineral, like slate or flint.

The Kaalatala that Coldtree fought was carrying a white stone that feels wet when rubbed, a goat beard talisman, and a roadrunner feather talisman. The Kaalatala that Taka fought was carrying a roadrunner feather talisman, a pouch of dried herbs, and a pouch of dried meat. The meat is edible, smells like hyrax. The Kaalatala that Lunnaya fought was carrying a greenjay feather talisman, a canine tooth necklace, and a pouch of dried herbs.

After recovery the party travels another two days upward into the mountains, without incident, until reaching the Kozzog Keep. After brief words exchanged in Orngaddin, the most common language between the two parties, the DWAC is emitted, politely and with formal courtesy. Speaking with these people, they explain that a clan of Deviard has discovered their mine and the Kozzog are not really a people to engage in conflict.

"Of the violent peoples in the land, the Deviard are the most technologically advanced and they have benders, but they are generally lazy. They prefer to collect the ore that others have mined rather than mining it themselves; afterward, they usually move on. We have seen them carrying ore from the mine, northward. They must actually be mining some on their own. They could have collected what we left in a few days. We have discussed a direct conflict but we think they would prove the stronger. We have sniffers currently out looking for more veins."

"If you wish to get involved, we would send some fighters with you, but statistically I would not recommend a frontal assault while all are present. I would recommend hitting either the transport or the mine when the groups are separated. I suspect that the mining group will be the weaker of the two. It has the more laborious task."

During the journey Coldtree will test the javelins for their usefulness as a ranged weapon. If he finds they are inferior, he will discard them. If the design is effective but the materials poor, he will keep one to copy the design with better craftsmanship. He will meditate with the white stone to determine its wayline proclivity. He will continue to determine proclivity for unknown items, going down the list in inventory over the two days.

About the Deviard mission Coldtree says, "We will not need extra fighters. Keep them for defense. Since this group is so much stronger, stealth and guile will be our first weapons. Let us go now."

Taka nods...
During the journey...
... Coldtree says, "We will not need extra fighters..."
Lunnaya agrees with Coldtree. "Keep your fighters. We were hired by Midway to investigate the cause of the loss of trade, not to eliminate it. Since this intrusion directly affects your community, would you put a monetary value on its elimination?"

The Kozzog pauses for a few seconds before responding. Tehn think at first that he may have offended the fellow; but after all, the Dragon Way Adventuring Company is not a charity organization. "If you simply retrieve any remaining titanium, it may make you seem as thieves or opportunistic mercenaries. I can pay you in silver, 20 ingots each, upon evidence of success. Please do not bring parts of the Deviard as evidence."

During the previous 2 days:
ecology + analysis + d100 => 100
Coldtree: 18 + 28 + 66 = 112, success
Lunnaya: 32 + 24 + 66 = 122, success
Time: 20 days / 112 = 4 hours, 18 minutes, fail
Time: 20 days / 122 = 3 hours, 23 minutes, fail
Coldtree and Lunnaya recover. Though both Coldtree and Tehn can sense that all items in question contain some proclivity for waylines, neither is able to analyze the nature of it. The rudimentary javelins have a shaft pretty much like any other javelin would, but the crudely fashioned stone heads are not cut for balance, making the weapon, as it is, undesireable.

Leaving Immediately:
It takes less than an hour to reach the mine in question. The interesting manner in which sound travels through stone indicates activity within the mine. Waiting patiently to discern more information about the enemy brings a cessation in the sound. Soon after four Deviard are seen exiting the mine. They seat themselves and appear to be preparing to have some lunch of dried rations, probably wanting the fresh air and light to go with it.

OOC: Coldtree and Tehn should not be hurt under status.

Before departing for the mines, Coldtree gives one of the saved javelins to the Kozzog to copy as a possible ranged weapon. He wants all new parts with a steel tip on the new javelins. He requests two javelins.
At the mines:
With a devious smile, Coldtree uses handmotions to convey his intention to manipulate waylines, using an Ant Stinger, to Toxin one of the Deviard, and that someone else should use another one on a different target. He sneaks as close as he dares within range of manipulating waylines for Toxin and uses the Ant Stinger to increase his affect.
