Midway Mining Expedition (PbP)

Creator of The Untamed Wilds
Coldtree looks around...
Taka is in agreement...
Being a mountain trail, finding a suitable ambush location takes only a matter of minutes. Coldtree is more suited to take the higher ground while Chi no Taka with his unnatural height, takes the lower at a convenient choke point along the path. Uncharacteristically, Lunnaya decides to be the bait. He stands in the path, leaning against a large boulder, and picks at is teeth with a twig, as if having just finished a meal.

It takes time. The waiting is terrible; but eventually, the group of 5 Deviards comes along the path. When they see Tehn, he waves at them and smiles in a vulpine manner, which would be typical for his tribe. The Deviards, at first, show sign of being surprised at the sight and make comments to one another. The one female, who may recognize Tehn, does not seem to do so. One of the new Deviards brandishes his hammer and checks his buckler before walking directly toward Tehn, making some comment.

Just short of reaching him, the previously encountered female yells at him, and he turn back to look. The word is not specifically understood, but it stands to reason that she has recognized a trap. All five Deviards are within 15 strides of both Coldtree and Taka and have shown no indication of awareness of the ambush.

Since the Deviard are WITHIN 15 strides, Taka tries to target one of the closest ones, his own range only being 12. If the female is within his range, he will target her first, before the meaning of her warning has time to sink in. Otherwise, his target selection will be at random, dependent only upon proximity.

Taka concentrates, attempting to affect his target with a heat attack.

Heat Attack = 60

... Coldtree intends to...
... Taka tries...
Tehn spits the twig from his mouth and draws his short sword and hunting knife. Remembering the results of the previously used insult by Coldtree, he calls the Deviard stupid in their own language.
Coldtree:
Taka:
Tehn: 26(speed) + 24(clarity) + 32(readiness) + 50(d100) = 132

Deviards: 12(readiness) + 30(clarity) + 17(speed) + 60(d100) = 119
Coldtree: ~0
Taka: ~0
Tehn: 800(wait) - 132 = 668

Deviards: 800(movement) - 119 = 681
It takes almost 7 seconds for the first Deviard can reach Lunnaya, who stands ready to receive him. In that time Chi no Taka is able to bend thermal waylines in an attempt to harm the female and each of two others who discover his location and make way toward him. Coldtree remains undiscovered until melee ensues with Lunnaya and is able to try paralyzing the mobility of a target four times.
Coldtree: 22(bending) + 41(lethargy) + 79(d100) = 142
Chi no Taka: 26 + 23(heat) + 60 = 109
Lunnaya: 30 + 24(acidity) + 70 = 124
Deviards: 17 + 30(shock) + 80 = 127

Chi no Taka: 33(conditioning) + 23(fury) + 60(d100) = 116
Lunnaya: 24 + 24 + 60 = 108
Deviards: 12 + 30 + 70 = 112
Lunnaya: 26(accuracy) + 24(clarity) + 32(finesse) + 50(d100) = 132
Deviards: 12(aggression) + 30(fury) + 17(accuracy) + 60(d100) = 119

Lunnaya: 26(counter) + 23(analysis) + 32(readiness) + 50(d100) = 131, dodged
Deviards: 12(readiness) + 25(analysis) + 17(block) + 60(d100) = 114 + 10(buckler) = 124
Coldtree: full wellness
Harnin arrows: 17
Tunic: 60 - 1 - 1 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 = 40
Taka:
damage: 127 - 116 = 11% * 4 = ~1 x 2, Body: 10 - 2 = 8, hurt
Boots: 20 - 7 = 14
Tehn:
damage: 127 - 108 = 19% * 4 = 1 x 2, Body: 10 - 2 = 8, hurt
Tunic: 60 - 1 - 1 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 = 40

D1: damage, 142 - 112 = 30% * 4 = 1 x 4, Motility: 1 - 4 = -3, Body: 10 - 3 = 7, slowed
damage, 124 - 112 = 12% * 4 = ~1, Body: 7 - 1 = 6
damage, 131 - 119 = 12% * 11 = 1, Body: 6 - 1 = 5
damage: 132 - 124 = 08% * 11 = ~1, Body: 5 - 1 = 4, hurt
The lead Deviard begins to move clumsily even before he can reach Lunnaya, who avoids his assault and sticks him with his hunting knife in a counter move, following with his short sword and causing internal harm by bending chemical waylines. In return Lunnaya is jolted with electricity, despite not having been touched.

Chi no Taka, despite his best effort, is unable to harm a Deviard but is, himself, electrocuted by the two who have closed with him. The one female from the original fight is the only one who has remained in her original location. There are two Deviards engaging Taka, and two engaging Tehn.

Taka will kick one of the Deviard on him in the knee. He will then try to leech life from the other one.

Coldtree... charge... Deviard facing Taka, striking with fist... Lethargy.
Taka will kick... in the knee.... leech...
Tehn is not concerned with the Deviard learning that he is a Bender. He manipulates chemical waylines to camouflage his appearance while continuing to fight with short sword and knife.
GM: TIP: If a physical assault is going to do non-lethal damage (Mind), it is best to use a mystical assault that does the same, and vise versa.

Coldtree: 600(move)

Deviards: 1 + 100(bending) = 101... 501
It will take six seconds for Coldtree to reach the Deviard attacking Taka or it would have. The female from the first fight who had remained where she stood, upon seeing his charge, interferes.
Coldtree: 22(bending) + 41(lethargy) + 60(d100) = 123

Tunic: 60 - 1 - 1 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 = 40
Interfering with the intended direction of Coldtree, the female Deviard in the path is immediately subjected to a mystical assault that robs her of motility. Coldtree then counters her hammer strike, hitting her with his left fist. His own assault connects only with armor.

With his first opponent slowed by the previous mystical assault of Coldtree and his own physical assaults, Lunnaya delays to counter the first assault of his second opponent before striking ineffectively at his first. The continued assaults of two opponents prove more effective, and Lunnaya is being beaten.

Chi no Taka, quite forcibly, kicks the knee of one opponent, causing enough damage to break the leg and the opponent to fall; all the while, successfully defending against any potential hammer fall.

Only Tehn appears to be in trouble as combat continues.

Coldtree will try a different tactic. With his opponent slowed, he intends to maneuver so that she is in line with one of her peers, strike her forcefully in the chest, and manipulate waylines to Thump and push her into one of her allies attacking Tehn to disrupt their assault.

Having knocked down one opponent, Taka will shoulder slam the other to knock him out of the way to free a path to help Tehn. He will augment the physical attack with thump.

Sliding to his left to gain his desired positioning, Coldtree punches the Deviard in the chest. It does not cause her physical harm, but she loses her balance and staggers backward 4 strides when a pulse of air that accompanied the strike knocks the wind from her and adds an additional 4 strides. Her body does not reach the opponents engaging Lunnaya, but the distance is impressive, for it would look to have been caused by the punch, alone.

Chi no Taka backhands his standing opponent and manages to knock him down; but even with the augmentation of a Thump, he cannot cause much harm nor fully clear his path.

Lunnaya, though dazed, moves more quickly than either of his opponents and establishes a superior status. He sticks the faster of the two with his knife while countering the hammer strike and deliberately stabs the other with his sword while causing internal, chemical harm.

Unwilling to surrender and unable to retreat, all five Deviards are quickly defeated, leaving none of the DWAC truly worse for wear. Non-lethal damage is superficial and recovers within minutes.

Taka will ensure that all enemies are dead, either by physical or manipulated means. He is angered by how relentlessly their kind embrace violence in the pursuit of psychotically-origined self-gratification.

He will then see to his friends, ensuring that none of them are truly injured; if any serious injuries do exist, he will do his best to aid that person.

Aid: 63

Next, Taka will help his friends examine the bodies, looking for any trinkets that might prove useful.

Search: 93(+76) = 169

While all of this is going on, Taka will be watchful for anything out of the ordinary.

Taka pauses thoughtfully, "Perhaps some more of their tools, knives, trinkets, or jewelry... I remember them telling us not to bring back body parts. I'm not sure why they would say that. But they did say it."

Coldtree... will search... he says, "... proof...?"
Taka will... see to his friends... examine...
Only having been inflicted non-lethal damage, Taka and Tehn recover in a matter of minutes. While gleaning the field and examining the fallen Lunnaya notes something and calls to the others.

"Hey, you two. Look at this. Two of these bucklers have a symbol stamped into their face. While anyone could make these trinkets, this symbol may indicate a particular clan. I think these two bucklers should be proof enough for use to get paid. As to the not bringing back body parts, I remember that my people would do such a thing. Maybe the Kozzog are sensitive about it."

Thoroughly searching results in a variety of collections. With plant material, some edible root vegetables are in a pouch, as well as two smaller pouches of dried herbs and two smaller pouches of dried flowers. With regard to minerals, there is a lump of coal, a grayish-black stone, a semi-translucent white stone, a dark-green stone, an opaque white stone, and a grey stone with orange streaks in it. With regard to ingots, there are 24 in total, some of which are the same material.

Coldtree replies, "I prefer not to travel with rotting human flesh either, so we'll take the bucklers."
Collect all the group can carry and then depart when they have done all they can at the battle site. When he has time, he will try to determine wayline proclivity. With so many undiscovered items, he will close his eyes and attempt to determine which items he can identify and try those first.

Coldtree... Collect all the group can carry... determine... proclivity...
GM: A total of 8 hammers and 8 bucklers are collected, along with the trinkets and food supplies. Surprisingly, it is a rather simple manner to determine which items are most readily identifiable. Mundane items give a certain assurance of their lack of proclivity. In opposite respect to their mystical strength, the weakest items have the strongest draw, because those waylines are the simplest to bend.

With the stock pile of spoils starting to build, Tehn assists in attempting to identify any usefulness of various items.
Coldtree: 20(alchemy) + 32(analysis) + 41(d100) = 93, fail
20 + 32 + 50 = 102, success
Time: 10 days / 102 = 3 hours, success
Tehn: 32 + 28 + 71 = 131, success
Time: 10 days / 131 = 2 hours, success
Despite his understanding of waylines, Coldtree initially seems to be having an off day, and cannot positively identify any proclivity; but with the length of travel, he later finds his focus. Lunnaya is able to determine that two of the dried herbs can be used to accelerate the natural, physical restoration of the body. Coldtree is able to determine that the other two dried herbs can be used to restore mental faculties. Everything else will take more time or better luck.

Upon returning to the Kozzog Keep, the DWAC are greeted as friends and immediately entreated to council. The symbol on two of the bucklers is a matter of some discussion among the Mhytres before one of them translates to Orngaddrin. "We think this to be a clan symbol, though we cannot definitively say. Prospectors reported seeing signs of a Deviard community some days northward, and we think this symbol is the same from there. If so, this indicates to us that the Deviard are trying to venture farther southward."

"Despite their established reputation, if it were possible to live peaceably with this clan, we would do so. If upon returning to the Midway Mining Camp you find little in the manner of employment, we would have you consider a reconnaissance mission for us."

Later, in Hebrian as best he can, Tehn conveys to his thoughts. "Though I have no intention to carry a buckler, I think we should keep them and trade for the value of the metal. The hammers I think we should give as a gift to the Kozzog to garner more favor in our reputation..."

He laughs. "They may have already belonged to them, anyway."

Coldtree agrees with Tehn, "If the hammers will improve our reputation with the Kozzog, then we'll gift them. We don't even know what most of the metals we have collected are, so we would have to trust them on value. We could return to our mining community to have them appraised. Perhaps the Kozzog will identify the metals for us."

Taka nods in agreement. "I think the monetary value is of secondary importance, to that of our reputation. My father always said that the most valuable thing a man has is his own, good name."

Coldtree agrees... "... We don't even know... metals... We could return to our mining community... Perhaps the Kozzog..."
Taka nods...
In the private conversation concerning the ores, Tehn suggests returning to Midway. "Kozzog Keep being a mining community as well, they may want to inquire more about locating where we found them. Sure we could simply say that we filched them from dead enemies, but these people are not going to tell use what we really want to know, even if they could. They are going to say, 'This is iron. This is aluminum, etc.' We are going to have to figure out on our own if they have any mystical use."
Coldtree: 25(negotiate) + 20(d100) + 10(gift) x 8 = 125
Chi no Taka: 23(negotiate) + 37(d100) + 10(gift) x 8 = 140
Lannaya: 36(negotiate) + 24(allure) + 29(d100) + 80 = 169
Not necessarily being the best for words, possibly due to the use of an intermediary language, the offer of the hammers significantly impacts the reputation of the DWAC members.

Departing on good terms, the first day of travel back to Midway is uneventful and suitable camping is arranged away from the main trail.

Coldtree will meditate every night with a new material from the inventory. He tells T&T, "It is my intention to reach new levels of power, unperceived by the simpletons we grew up with. Tell me, companions, what are your ambitions?"
