Merin... "I'll take left."

Merin intends to burn... Phoenix Feather.... bo staff...
Being impossible to not hear the piercing wail, Sheldon grits his teeth and yells at Merin without really meaning to do so as he immediately moves right. "DONE!"
Iguanid: 78(effectiveness) + 89(d100) = 167
Merindell:32(conditioning) + 32(clarity) + 84 = 148
damage: 167 - 148 = 19% * 8 = 2
Mind: 10 - 2 = 8, dazed

Sheldon: 27 + 51 + 79 = 157
damage: 167 - 157 = 10% * 8 = 1
Mind: 10 - 1 = 9, dazed
Readiness + Speed + Clarity + d100
Merindell: 37 + 41 + 32 + 78 = 188
Sheldon: 25 + 41 + 51 + 79 = 198
Iguanids: 78 + 52 + 0 + 89 = 219
hindrance - reaction => 0
Merindell: 200(bending) - 188 = 12 + 200(movement) = 212
Sheldon: 200(bending) - 198 = 2 + 200(movement) = 202
Iguanids: 200(movement) - 219 = 0
Moving much faster than could have ever been anticipated, the two iguanids close the distance with amazing speed but not faster than both Merindell and Sheldon can bend their respectively desired waylines.
bending + various + d100
Merindell: 43 + 52(combust) x 3(phoenix) + 86 = 285
Sheldon: 81 + 55(acid) + 79 = 215

I1: 78 + 89 = 167
damage: 285 - 167 = 118% * 6 = 7
Body: 10 - 7 = 3, injured

I2: 78 + 89 = 167
damage: 215 - 167 = 48% * 6 = 3
Body: 10 - 3 = 7, hurt
Aggression + Accuracy + Bolster + d100
Iguanids: 78 + 52 + 0 + 89 = 219
Merindell: 37 + 41 + 75 + 68 = 221
Readiness + Avoidance + Analysis + d100
Merindell: 37 + 31 + 34 + 68 = 170
damage: 219 - 170 = 49% - 37(aggression) = 12% - 41(contortion), no damage, prone

Sheldon: 25 + 44 + 64 + 79 = 222, dodged

I1: 78 + 52 + 0 + 89 = 219, resisted
Almost instantly, both iguanids are assailed with elemental damage, one in the form of heat, the other in the form of acid. Both are hurt, but the one that Merindell heats is more injured.

Despite this, both reptiles attempt to barrel into their respective quarries. Sheldon manages to avoid the beast, but Merindell is knocked prone, though he is unharmed by the blow. As Merin is thrown aside, he smacks the iguanid with his bo, but the assault is ineffective. The toothy mouthed lizards seem intent on continuing.

Merin will jab at the lizard once more with his bo staff, aiming at the creature's ribs, while at the same time, focusing a narrow burst of sound in that exact same location. His intent is to cause the creature internal injury, hopefully breaking some of its ribs.

Bo Staff: 94 (+81) = 175

Merin will jab... bo staff... sound...
GM: For game mechanics, the use of sound in an assault causes non-lethal damage. It targets the brain. Structural damage, like with the use of a rail gun, would be handled strictly with role-play and would only affect non-living things.

Your character may move air to attempt to throw an opponent, but this is not very effective against a creature with four legs. When combining sound with a blunt weapon assault, it is best to strike at the head.

As the monstrous lizard chomps in at Merindell, he nimbly rolls back over his own shoulder and onto his feet, avoiding the bite. Delaying his repost for a second to coordinate his mystical assault, he jabs the end of the staff just behind the forward leg with enough force to drive all the air from the creature's lungs, while piercing his brain with an awful tone. The big iguana rolls over on its side, tongue hanging from its mouth.

Though engaged in dire combat, Sheldon begins to hum in a soothing manner. HIs iguana attacks once more ineffectively, then simply lays down on the ground, calmly, as Sheldon strokes its nose with his knuckle.

He looks over at Merin and smiles, "That went well. Now what?"

Merin laughs, pulling out his skinning knife, "Now we skin and clean these little pests, and see if any of their parts are useful. Surely, you're not thinking of adopting this thing as a pet?"

Merin laughs, pulling out his skinning knife, "... Surely, you're not thinking of adopting this thing as a pet?"
Sheldon smiles and shakes his head. He pats the huge beast and it immediately moves away to swim across the river.

"No. It is just a big lizard. I do not think it could readily be trained for much, but before you poke that thing with that little knife, you may want to note that it is breathing. I am actually going to suggest we just leave it. It is way too much meat to carry. We do not need the hide or its parts. We already have some lizard claws we have not yet been able to analyze."

"What say you
?"

Merin laughs, "Ok, fine."

Merin says later that he felt no particular need to kill the creature, his intention to do so being more force of habit than anything else.

Merin laughs, "Ok, fine."...
At the latter commentary, Sheldon cocks his head a gives Merindell a sidelong glance. "I have not suddenly developed some impractical philosophy about killing animals. Now that it is just the two of us, I realized it was too much waste."

It is three more days, by foot, to return to Bridgetown, following the river. The river flows through a wooded area still mostly composed of pine, various nut bearing trees can be found closer to the water. This area being little traveled, there is quite a bit of wildlife and the river seems to hold plenty of fish but is too deep and broad to really be considered for prospecting.

Late in the afternoon the second day, when the two were thinking of stopping for the night, the smell of a cookfire from further downstream wafts on the prevailing breeze.

Sheldon speaks quietly to Merindell. "Could be peaceable travelers but out here, not likely. Do you want to take peak or wait until morning?"

Merin says, in a whisper, "Let's wait until dawn, just before they would normally be awake, but when, on the horizon, there are the beginnings of light; that way, combined with Way Manipulation, we'll be able to augment ourselves to see better, giving us the advantage."

Merin says, in a whisper, "Let's wait until dawn..."
Sheldon runs his left hand through his hair, pulling it back from his face. "Good plan. Just so you will know, you cannot manipulate the Way itself. We are only bending the path that it travels, to our will, in order to generate a desired result. The potential is already there, but it is not like we could talk to anyone else about such or even find much of a populace who could understand.."

He laughs at himself, quietly.
concealment + various + d100
Merindell: 44 + 50(soullessness) + 67 = 161
Sheldon: 47 + 51(camouflage) + 67 = 165

Carefully moving into range in order to get a better look at the nearby campers, Merindell and Sheldon feel competent in the concealment. The slightly heightened visual acuity reduces the long shadows of the morning, making it easier to see. Merin being more skillful with this than Sheldon.

Unexpectedly, the two men find themselves looking at an encampment of the palest Faethrins they have ever seen. Their cloud, white skin starkly evident in the early light. These people are not late sleepers, nor do they appear to be incompetent in any manner, for they are already awake and moving about. It is a small party of four members. They are adorned in leather that must be either snake or lizard, for it blends in with the surrounding as the people move.

Sheldon catches Merin's eye as if to ask, "How do you want to handle this?"
