Taka will manipulate the desired waylines in order to heat up his opponent, specifically on his legs; his idea is to burn his opponent's muscles to a crisp, thereby crippling him. As a follow-up, he will stab his opponent with the short sword.

Coldtree... see one of Lunnaya's opponents, and manipulate waylines to Heat the Kinamin...
Taka will... heat up his opponent... he will stab...
Coldtree, Taka, and the unimpeded Kinamin on Tehn all act simultaneously. The Kinamin touches Lunnaya, but he resists being heated. At the same time, that same Kinamin resists being heated by the assault from Coldtree. While the sword is ineffective against his opponent, just the touch of body to body allows Taka to cause serious thermal damage to his second opponent.

Being slightly delayed due to the minor daze, Tehn slashes at his first opponent a mere 5th of a second later, not only causing significant bodily harm but also rendering the opponent unconscious with the third dose of mystical toxin. After sustaining another strike from his second opponent, Tehn is still able to resist being heated.

The second opponent on Coldtree pushes through his injury but is unable to cause harm, either physically or mystically.

The burned second opponent on Taka is unable to reciprocate.

Coldtree will punch at his opponent and manipulate waylines to Heat him again.
Taka will use the stab / burn combo on his opponent.
Coldtree punches his remaining opponent. The blow is a fairly good one for for a weaponless strike, but with the addition of the heat caused by the contact, the already injured Kinamin is rendered incapacitated. Being so much slowed by his condition, Coldtree easily finishes the monster without any risk of reciprocation.

Taka stab his opponent, making a puncture in his abdomen. As he follows through to make further contact with his elbow, he generates enough heat to not only cause the man to be incapacitated but also to be dying. It appears that his life will slip away in a matter of minutes.

Tehn is not so effective but does manage to slash his opponent with his sword and intoxicate his mind with the use of another ant stinger. The Kinamin is hurt enough that an addition sword strike is enough to finish the job with no further risk to himself.

In the course of approximately 15 seconds, the Dragon Way Adventuring Company manages to vanquish six Kinamins. Cursory examination shows them to not be in possession of anything to indicate that they were responsible for the missing caravan. Their encounter seems merely hapstance.

Coldtree looks down at the dead opponents and smiles. "We overcame a 2 on 1 advantage. Let us set out again to find out what happened to those whores."

Taka wonders to himself, ~I wonder if The Way could show me the thoughts of these men, just before they died? Why did they attack with so little provocation?~

Coldtree... "... Let us set out again to find out what happened to those whores."
It takes several minutes of rest for Tehn's mind to clear from the mystical damage. Once it does he offers a late laugh. "There was food with that caravan too, you know? Besides, I think they charge. That stuff is not free, like a whore."

Taka seems to be lost in thought for the few minutes. After the late jibe, Lunnaya asks his friends to wait a few more minutes as he examines the scene.

Tehn shows some marked skill as a tracker. He conveys to the others exactly where the Kinamins had passed to arrive at the encounter location. He distinctly identifies four of the six men's prints. He also appears to have confiscated several items from the fallen but does not discuss that.

The next day begins the descent on the eastern side of The Dragon's Spine, which brings a change in vegetation. Trees become taller and more frequently nut bearing rather than conifers. The path toward East Port becomes more distinct and easier to follow. Tiring of small rodents and small birds, the men occasionally divert from the road in hopes of spotting larger game.

On the trail of what looks to be some highland peccaries, a hidden viper strikes from concealment at the lead man.
OOC: Random roll determines that Coldtree was in the lead at that moment. Possible surprise will first be determined. All Players state character intentions at the sight of a striking viper and provide at least two random rolls.

It is obvious that the viper will strike first; by the time you see most vipers strike, it is already too late. However, Taka will see to it that it doesn't strike a second time. He draws his sword, and tries to cut the snake's head off.

98 (+39 Luck) = 137... yay!

Since Coldtree has no time for thought, his actions are involuntary. His eyes get wide as he attempts to dodge this viper.

The head of a pit viper seems to dart out of nowhere. The snake is sufficiently large to even be able to strike above the waist from ground level. The bite catches Coldtree in the thigh. It stings and begins to burn. Reflexively he strikes back, as does Taka. Tehn is unable to be helpful at this time.

Despite the luck of quick action by Coldtree and Taka, misfortune seems to counter, as the viper moves even more quickly, recoiling from its successful strike without leaving itself vulnerable to reciprocation.

The snake is standing its ground looking poised for a second strike. It's skin blends well with its surrounding making it understood how it was missed before it attacked. It shakes no rattle nor makes any sound to give away its position.
OOC: Characters need a roll for reaction and a roll for action. Coldtree will need an extra roll for resisting the venom. All characters receive 1 DP.

Cold tree will use an Ant Stinger to toxify the snake. He says to the snake, "I don't have to get near you to destroy you."

Cold tree will use an Ant Stinger to toxify the snake...
OOC: Taka's intentions: Sword attack + heat attack; rolls = (60)
Tehn attempts to slash it with his large knife and will attempt to touch it, if it strikes at him, causing mystical ionization.

The venom courses through the veins of Coldtree beginning to impede his motility. At perceptibly the same instant, Coldtree bends chemical waylines to harm the snake as the snake makes its second strike. This time aiming for Taka and finding his bare thigh.

The ant stinger in Coldtree's possession disintegrates, amplifying his generated toxicity, which dazes the viper. As the snake is recoiling from its strike, Taka is unable to hit it; but being prepared to heat it upon contact, reciprocation occurs at the point of the bite. The heat is just enough to incapacitate the snake, but blinking its eyes, it is obviously still alive, or was.

As Taka grabs his leg, Tehn, who was unable to hit the moving snake, kills it once it is no longer moving. He looks at his two friends who have been bitten. "I think I may be able to help neutralize that venom in just the opposite manner in which we made that corn toxic. Basically it is the same thing I did with the skunk spray, but this snake venom may be more powerful."
OOC: Taka will need to make a resistance check against the venom and Coldtree will need to make his second.

OOC: Each character receives 6 DP.

Coldtree searches around for any more snakes, and will stab the viper to make sure it is dead. If the snake skin is still in good shape he will suggest, "Let's skin it and make matching belts."
He will check to determine is any viper parts have way line proclivity.

Taka will take whatever steps are necessary to address the wound; in addition to Tehn's efforts, Taka will concentrate on manipulating waylines to help rid his body of the venom, as best he can. If he gets to where he can walk comfortably, he will forage for medicinal herbs as well.

OOC: Base roll for self-purification: 72. Hmmm. My dice seem to like that number.

The venom hits Taka like a giant hand gripping his entire body. He can hardly move. Coldtree, with the benefit of some additional luck, is able to override any further detriment. The thinking that there is some similarity between nullifying skunk spray and viper venom turns out to be sound. Following Lunnaya's description, Taka is able to understand how to manipulate the waylines but cannot bend them enough to counter the venom. With a tiny bit of luck of his own, Tehn does manipulate chemical waylines in such a manner so as to detoxify the venom. Unfortunately, some damage has already been done.
OOC: No further harm will come from the venom, but the previous damage remains. As only Coldtree has the talent to restore lost developmental abilities, I will take some liberty with your character.

Coldtree searches... and will stab the viper... If the snake skin is still in good shape he will suggest, "Let's skin it and make matching belts."
He will check to determine is any viper parts have (any) proclivity.
Taka will take whatever steps are necessary to address the wound... If he gets to where he can walk comfortably, he will forage for medicinal herbs as well.
After assuring himself that the snake is dead and realizing that he has overridden the venom but is still impeded by the damage, Coldtree enhances his healing before looking after the viper. Since both Coldtree and Taka are impeded, Tehn volunteers to skin the snake, saving the skull and vitals for Coldtree to examine.

Tehn does a competent job of removing the skin. It should be enough material to make a fine belt for either Coldtree or Lunnaya or a pair of bracers for either. It is not enough material to make anything for Taka.

Noticing that Coldtree is improving rapidly, Tehn comments, "Whatever you did to speed your recovery, neither I not Taka can do. It will be many days before he recovers, unless you help him."
OOC: 10 ranks in Collegiate are necessary before developmental abilities may be affected.

Ecology + Analysis + d100
Coldtree: 16 + 24 + 60 = 100
Time: 10 days * 2 / 100 = 4 hours, 48 minutes
Coldtree is able to determine that the skull and the heart of the snake have mystical properties but is unable to learn their nature.
OOC: I have not forgotten the "forage." This is contingent upon receiving aid. All characters receive 3 DP.
