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.

Muddle: 72

... 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.

damage: 142 - 125 = 17% * 4 = ~1
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
Way Manipulation (Heat): 91 (+39) = 130

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.

Taka will siphon health from his opponent, while attempting to clothesline him when he draws near.

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.
