Raven Elk will allow the sow to charge, holding his spear at the ready, his body in a defensive/evasive position (like a Matador), to have the pig impale itself upon the spear's point.

OOC: Impetus:
Affect: Self
Effectiveness:

  • Essence + Cohesion +
  • Collegiate
This passive technique is used to augment the speed of a character's ability to initiate action under the Commercial Task of Sequencing.
Sequencing: (order of action)

  • Impetus (Collegiate Task) +
  • Body + Motility +
  • Mind + Knowledge +
  • Commercial
This passive technique is used to determine the initial reaction time with regard to combat. A single combat sequence comprises all actions possible in ONE SECOND of time which is divided into 100 equal parts called tics. Not all characters will be able to act in the first second, especially when using slow weapons.

Raven: 11 + 17 + 77 = 105 - 50(weapon) - 24(armor) = 31
Maka: 10 + 18 + 64 = 92 - 200(weapon) - 22(armor) = -130
Vittero: 10 + 18 + 53 = 81 - 200(weapon) - 24(armor) = -143
Taylar: 9 + 17 + 95 = 121 - 100(weapon) - 24(armor) = -3
Pig R: 0 + 14 + 72 = 86 - 20(tusk) - 60(injury) = 6
Pig T: 0 + 14 + 72 = 86 - 20(tusk) - 30(injury) = 36

GM: The pig attacking Taylar reacts first.

GM:
OOC: Fury:
Affect: Self
Effectiveness:
  • Essence + Confluence +
  • Collegiate
This passive technique is used to augment the outcome of Combat and various Commercial tasks. The specific use of this technique is listed under each Combat and Commercial Task to which it can be applied.
Lethality:
  • Body + Motility +
  • Mind + Knowledge +
  • Commercial
This active technique implies a knowledge of anatomy and vital areas best targeted during combat. As this tasks is specifically applied to augment combat, Collegiate Enhancement is not applicable.
Attack:
  • Fury + Lethality +
  • Body + Strength +
  • Mind + Knowledge +
  • Combat
This active task does not require the use of a weapon, as any object held in the hand or any part of a creature's body used to strike an opponent is sufficient for the purpose of determining the outcome of this task.

Pig T: 0 + 11 + 13 + 87(d100) = 111
Taylar: 10 + 17 + 19 + 73(d100) = 119
Raven: 10 + 17 + 19 + 81(d100) = 125

GM: The dazed sow on Taylar regains some bering quickly enough to lunge at his attacker hoping to bite him.

GM:
OOC: Konokoro:
Affect: Self
Effectiveness:
  • Essence + Adhesion +
  • Collegiate
This is like a sixth sense. It is a paranormal spacial awareness. It is used to augment non-Collegiate Tasks such as defensiveness and perception. The specific use of this technique is listed under each Commercial Task to which it can be applied.
Defensiveness:
  • Mind + Knowledge +
  • Commercial
This passive technique is specifically applied to enhance counter-combat. The character must be conscious to utilize this technique. Collegiate enhancement is not applicable.
Defend:
  • Konokoro + Defensiveness +
  • Body + Motility +
  • Mind + Knowledge +
  • Combat
This passive technique is considered reflexive or subconscious in nature, as it applies even if the defender is slower than the attacker. The defender must, however, be aware of the attacker, as being surprised allows for no defense.

Raven: 9 + 9 + 18 + 81(d100) = 117
Pig T : 0 + 5 + 14 + 50(d100) = 69
Pig R: 0 + 5 + 14 - 6(injury) + 61(d100) = 74
Taylar: 8 + 9 + 17 = 34
  • Attack: 111 - 34 = 77
  • Damage: 77% * 4 = 3 - 5(deflect): ineffective

GM: The pig bites at Taylar's thigh, making contact but being unable to to penetrate the sheepskin pants.

As the pig charges by and begins to round for another approach, Taylar brings his heavy club down once again.
GM: Attack: 119 - 69 = 50
Damage: 50% * 10 = 5 - 2(soak) = 3
Mind: 1 - 3 = -2: unconscious
Body: 8 - 2 = 6: hurt

The injured sow charges Raven Elk, but being ready, he easily avoids the rush.
Raven: 125 - 74 = 51

  • Damage: 51% * 20 = 10
  • Body: 2 - 10 = -8: incapacitated
  • Mind: 4 - 8 = -4: unconscious

GM: Four sows have been felled. The unconscious one that Taylar knocked out can easily be finished. What are your intentions?

Sows will be much better to eat than bugs,” Maka says. He then pulls out his knife, and begins to skin, gut, and prep the nearest one.

  • Individual Posts:
    • Maka: 4
    • Raven Elk: 5
    • Taylar: 3
  • Innovative Ideas: All Characters, 3 each.

GM: Advice:
Characters wishing to be able to manipulate Way (use magic) should first attempt to elevate Essence to 10 ranks for 1 rank in Adhesion is needed to perform such tasks.

Characters who wish to be primary, up front, fighters will want to elevate Body.

10 ranks in Body conveys +1 to Health, +1 to Motility, and +1 to Strength.
10 ranks in Essence conveys +1 to Adhesion, +1 to Cohesion, and +1 to Confluence.
10 ranks in Mind conveys +1 to Knowledge, +1 to Persona, and +1 to Will.

10 ranks in Body is needed before points may be spent on Combat.
10 ranks in Mind is needed before points may be spent on Commercial.
10 ranks in Essence is needed before points may be spent on Collegiate.

Taylar draws his knife and cuts the throat of the one he felled. Before helping to clean and dress the fresh pork, he looks over the sows to see if any of their tusks or teeth are worth taking for use on the handles of weapons.

As Taylar works he grins at his companions and says, "How big should we claim these pigs are when we tell this story? I'm going to say mine was as long as I am tall and so wide I could not get my arms around it."

Hearing Taylar's boasting, Raven Elk shakes his head, knowing that before this adventure was over, the telling would get even more inflated. He gives a smirk as he goes back to watching the perimeter to make sure no boars show up, or worse: predators, slink or prowl up on them to "share" in the kill.

"Let's be quick about it, my friend. I fear the scent of blood will attract more than we would wish to deal with."

Before helping to clean and dress the fresh pork, Taylar looks over the sows to see if any of their tusks or teeth are worth taking...
GM: Though they do not have the enlarged tusks of a boar, being pigs of the rooter variety, their bottom canines are somewhat enlarged. Big enough to be worth keeping a token of success. In fact, those small tusks seem to hold some draw to all four men's attention. Nothing that can be specifically identified, but everyone feels the urge to keep them.

As Taylar works he grins at his companions and says,

Vittero laughs aloud.
"No one believes your exaggerated stories, anyway. Everyone is just afraid to tell you since you are as big as a brown bear.

Looks like we all four felled a pig. This is good fortune, indeed. We have enough meat here to feed 20 people. We should take a day to dry and smoke it so that is does not go to waste. We should save these hides, too. We may be able to sell them to the Master Hunter, and they are tougher than sheepskin

Vittero responds.
"Good point. We should carry the guts off away from where we will need to cure the meat and dry the hide. The next time we go out, we should bring some salt with us, in case we get more hides we want to save."

GM: Spoils:
Pork: 120 bricks
Pig Hides: 4, 30% coverage each
Small Tusks: 8

GM: NOTE:
The effect of each pair of sow tusk is permanent as long as the item is possessed. If they are used for their purpose to manipulate Way, they are consumed. The effect can be felt immediately. The use is not yet available to the characters. Much greater Collegiate skill is need for their use.

Maka pauses his butchering to say: "Perhaps we should look for more pigs around here, and collect enough skin to make ourselves some better tunics. We can sell what we don't use, but we should keep some of the pigskins for ourselves."

Raven elk, still keeping an eye out on the perimeter, says:
"Let's not forget our original reason for being out here. Ma would not be happy. And the bug situation would not be addressed."

He then quickly looks to Maka and Taylar and adds: "We may think ourselves as rebels and freebooters; but we have never dishonored ourselves, nor have we have ever not followed through on a promise."

He then goes back to guarding the perimeter by continually circling the slaughter grounds that Maka and Taylar are creating, adding nothing more in comment.

Still smiling, Taylar looks around before excitedly asking Raven Elk, "Why? What do you think will show up? Maybe something I wouldn't have to exaggerate to get a good story out of, huh?"

Taylar helps with moving the guts and smoking the meat. While they wait for the meat to cure he takes a few swings with his two handed club. "I feel like I can make this thing more dangerous," he says. "Maybe I'll add a big hammer head on the end of it. Won't take two knocks to finish a pig then."

Perception:
  • Konokoro (Collegiate Task) +

This passive technique represents watching and listening to the immediate area to determine patterns, anomalies, or dangers.

Raven Elk: 9 + 10 + 80(d100) = 99

The only animals in the area other than small birds, insects, and lizards are some large squirrels high in the trees. Nothing dangerous is perceived.

Vittero looks up from the pig he is cleaning. He scratches his head with his forearm trying not to get blood in his face.
"Have no doubt, my friend. I estimate that we had been traveling for about 3 hours when we encountered these pigs. Your Ma said that the herb field was a day's walk. We still have about another 7 hours to go before we are even in the vicinity of the beetle problem. We should not be expected back in town for 3 or 4 days."

Vittero laughs at his own realization.
"That may be why she offered this task. It gets us out from local mischief for a few days."

Vittero, who is almost always jovial, laughs again.
"Well Taylar and me for sure! I prefer the term adventurer, though. Out of respect for Maka and his Rheini clan, we need to make sure that we do not waste all this meat or these skins. We have the time. It will be dark before we are finished. Our chance for predators will be greater then. We can move off some before we sleep."

Kwargrow said:

Vittero roars, laughing.
"Rebel!"

When Vittero has finished gutting his pig, he clears an area and builds a fire. As he looks down at the pile of kindling, he gets a tingling sensation all over. The hair on his arms stands out. He reaches down and touches the wood which immediately ignites of its own volition.

He jumps back, having startled himself.
"Whoa! I did not know I could do that. I think we should keep this among ourselves. My father has the gift of healing, but he is dedicated to The Dawn. This is different. I do not know what the townspeople might think."

Vittero looks over at him, recovering from his momentary shock at his own talent and sticks out his tongue.
"You are just showing off because I can make fire."

Raven Elk shrugs, nods in agreement to Maka's statement, then finds a place to set up his own bit of camp, even though he knows it is temporary --- until the smoking and curing are done.

He hopes that none of them take too much note of his not getting in on the gutting, skinning and cleaning of the sows. He never liked pigs or the meat from them. It is why he wears sheepskin only. Ma always chuckled at his dislike of pork and all porcine creatures, since she cooked it so often herself. He would eat fruits, nuts, vegetables and breads those meals.

He wondered if his friends, close as they were, ever really made note of his subtle refusal to eat the flesh of hogs. He knew Ma would never tell; but, he wondered all the same.

OOC: Although Raven Elk cannot hear Maka's exact thoughts, some of what is on Maka's mind is conveyed through his body language / other social queues.


Maka muses inwardly: ~Raven Elk does not like the flesh of hogs; and that's fine, I guess. More for me. I know it's not deer, or rabbit, or buffalo, but it's still tender, and it's not gamy like raccoon, and there is no reason not to make use of it. My father would beat me if I did not help clean the group's kill. The sows are still our Earth-sisters, and we still owe them the respect of making full use of what he have taken from them.~

"Every kill cannot be an Elk, my brother. You should eat. The sow meat is a gift, and we should not refuse it." Maka smiles, ribbing Raven Elk a little, in a good-natured way.

Taylar says, "I knew a man that died from eating uncooked pork. When I asked my father about it, he said you have to cook the pig well enough so that it does not come back to life while it is inside you and tear your intestines out. Any meat that is that dangerous should give me plenty of strength."

He stretches and looks around. "I wonder if we could find something to ride out here. That would make these trips less tedious."

Maka says,
"... We could stay out here awhile longer afterwards, and enjoy a little pig hunting."
GM: An hour or so into the curing of the pork, it occurs to Maka that he is looking at 120 bricks of meat, which means that each person will need to carry 30 bricks without a good means of wrapping it. That is a lot of weight.

OOC: 1 brick ~= 1 pound

Vittero bobbles his head back and forth once.
"You are not having any? At least we brought some rations with use, then. Ooh! If I eat Raven's portion, I wonder if I will grow up to be as big as Taylar?"

Taylar stretches and looks around.
Kwargrow said:
"I wonder if we could find something to ride out here. That would make these trips less tedious."
Vittero laughs.
"You are joking! You would kill some burro that tried to carry you... but on that thought, this is a whole lot of meat to carry. Having a pack animal would be really useful."

Vittero takes the intestines from one of the pigs and stretches them between two trees until it becomes a taut line.
"Hopefully we can get some replacement bow strings from this and it will give us a way to tie the meat into baldrics."

GM: Seeing Vittero do such brings another benefit to Maka's mind. He takes the four stomachs and cleans them as best he can, then fills them with air tying off both ends. His hope is that if they will keep until returning to town perhaps they can be properly cleaned and turned into waterskins.

GM: After about 3 hours, the distinct sounds of some peculiar creatures can be heard approaching from downwind. The sound is odd, not something anyone has heard before.
