Wrenn... heat...
Hiroshi... stab...
Feeling embolden by the forward movements of his new friends, Marqus brandishes his carving axes and moves in, as well.
readiness + speed + clarity + d100
Wrenn: 15 + 16 + 15 + 83 = 129
Hiroshi: 16 + 15 + 14 + 59 = 104
Marqus: 12 + 14 + 16 + 71 = 113
beetle: 20 + 16 + 81 = 117
Moving first, Wrenn learns that the animal only appears to be oblivious to its environment. As the other men are only half a step behind, each is bombarded by the noxious fumes emitted by the insect, as it attempts to flee.
36(effectiveness) + 86(d100) = 122
Resistance: Conditioning + Clarity + d100
Wrenn: 13 + 15 + 78 = 106
damage: 122 - 106 = 16% * 10 = 2
Mind: 10 - 2 = 8, dazed
Hiroshi: 16 + 14 + 74 = 104
damage: 122 - 104 = 18% * 10 = 2
Mind: 10 - 2 = 8, dazed
Marqus: 13 + 16 + 76 = 105
damage: 122 - 105 = 17% * 10 = 2
Mind: 10 - 2 = 8, dazed
bending + collegiate + d100
Wrenn: 16 + 15 + 78 = 109
beetle: 20(conditioning) + 86(d100) = 106
damage: 109 - 106 = 3%, ineffective
aggression + fury + d100
Marqus: 14 + 18 + 76 = 108
Hiroshi: 16 + 14 + 74 = 104
beetle: 20(defend) + 16(avoidance) + 86(d100) = 122
Despite the toxic cloud, Wrenn manages to touch the beetle as it takes to flight. Hiroshi and Marqus both miss with their weapons. The beetle flies away leaving all three men a little fuzzy in their thought process.
OOC: Each character receives 6 DP.
 

Tellerian Hawke

Defender of Oerth
Wrenn says, in Shimadow: "Wow, that didn't go as planned." Switching to Ansylin for Hiroshi's benefit: "Sorry, I meant to say 'wow, that didn't go as planned.' Sometimes I revert to my native tongue when I am surprised or frustrated. In this case, both."

Wrenn pauses, and then begins to concentrate; he will attempt to manipulate waylines in order to clear his mind. He nods knowingly at both Hiroshi and Marqus, because both of them have the talent as well, and he knows they will follow suit. It is unspoken, as Marqus suggested. The fewer words that were spoken about it, the better.

Clarity (?): 98 (+86) = 184
 


Tellerian Hawke

Defender of Oerth
Once everyone has had the chance to clear their heads, Wrenn suggests that they continue on, in the interests of not wasting any more daylight.

Wrenn comments, "The bug was an interesting diversion, but we still have a job to do. Let's get moving."

Wrenn says, in Shimadow: "Wow, (den pige opos eiche programmatistei)."..."

... manipulate waylines... mind...
Hiroshi... manipulate waylines... mind...
Once everyone has had the chance to clear their heads, Wrenn suggests that they continue on...
Rather than manipulating mystical waylines, some instinct in Marqus provokes him to manipulate chemical waylines instead. The end result is the same motivator.
bending + soothe or rearrangement + d100
Wrenn: 20 + 16 + 184 = 216
Time: 20 hours / 216 = 6 minutes
Hiroshi: 20 + 14 + 81 = 115
Time: 20 hours / 115 = 11 minutes
Marqus: 17 + 17 + 133 > 100
Instead of having to wait hours for the effects of the toxin to pass, the ability to bend waylines with regard to mental function allows Wrenn and Hiroshi to recover in a matter of minutes. As a matter of luck, since the toxin had only a mental effect, Marqus is able to render the toxin harmless and recovers in a matter of seconds.

Later, laughing about the misfortune of the insect, the three pass the time in idle chatter and casual search. Game seems to be plentiful, but nothing encountered is very large until the remains of a dead pig is discovered. The pig must have been killed by some predator some days back and abandoned after the predator had eaten its fill. Some scavenger ants seem to have located what remains and are pinching off chunks to be carried somewhere else. Ants can be dangerous. Like the previous beetle, these are rather large insects, being about the size of a person's forearm. The pattern of movement seems to keep three ants in the area at the same time.
OOC: All characters receive 3 DP and improve in Shimadow by 1%.

Wrenn smiles, "... ants don't emit any venomous clouds... nasty bite. You guys wanna track them down? What say you?"
HIroshi nods "Sounds like a good idea to me..."
Marqus swishes his mouth back and forth and rubs his thumbs to his forefingers. "I agree about the cloud, but it is not the bite that is dangerous. It is the stinger at the back end. It contains a venom. Some of the other rovers have encountered them."

"I do not think we should follow them to their nest. There would be too many in number, at once. They seem to be spaced out enough, we could hit a few of them on the corpse, then back away
."

OOC: No decision has yet been made as to strategy. The corpse has not been approached. They party os still in discussion mode. All characters receive 3 DP.
