OOC: LOL I was about to say, "Don't forget Tor, he uses a shield, too!"


Maka nods, "As you are charging up the middle, Vittero and I will shoot the ones on either flank. Adi, where will you be?"

Taylar... says, "... Do we have a useful spot to ambush them from?"
"I say range fire, then charge into melee while they're off balance and confused."
Taylar nods at Raven Elk. "Very well..."
Maka nods, "As you are charging up the middle, Vittero and I will shoot the ones on either flank. Adi, where will you be?"
Adisakti responds, “I will go with you, Vittero can take the other side.”

Spreading out through the trees, the crew gets a better look at their targets. These men, are all men, and appear to be a squad of armed priests rather than Thisidan Regulars. Moving back and forth among the trees, it is difficult to be absolutely sure of the number, but it appears to be about 20. They are easy to track, however, since they are all garbed in white surcoats, bound at the waist with a wide belt. The back and front of each tabard is emblazoned with the image of the shining sun. Each man is strapped at the waist with a short, double-edged sword.

From the party’s current position, the charge would hit the enemy line about center of its right flank or it can be allowed to pass further along and overtaken from the rear.
OOC: Let me know the desired approach and any preparations.

Maka says, "I think we should hit them from the rear, so that it will take the ones in front longer to react and respond. When you charge, Adi and I will shoot from the left side."

Maka will use The Way to obscure himself before beginning the assault.

Raven Elk looks at Taylar and. with a surprisingly (disconcertingly?) wicked grin, nods in agreement, fully ready to perform an "Attaque par derriere".

He picks the closest cleric at the rear of the line and uses Way to generate a sou d attack using a high pitched frequency that pier as through the brain, causing sonic damage.

Roll: 84

Maka says, "I think we should hit them from the rear..."

Maka will use The Way to obscure himself before beginning the assault.
Maka: 22(bend light) + 34(hide) = 56
Adisakti: 21(bend light) + 32(hide) = 53
Acolytes: 30(clarity) + 12(perception) = 42
Maka and Adi bend the shadows to further conceal themselves and they quickly, yet quietly close range on the squad of warrior clergy. Maka pauses at short bow range to fire an arrow while Adi continues on to launch a javelin.
Maka: 18(readiness) + 41(athletic) + 25(clarity) + 56(stealth) + 50(d100) + 50(range) = 240
Acolyte1: 30(analysis) + 12(obscure) + 42(aware) + 20(buckler) + 75(d100) = 179
Damage: 240 - 179 = 61% * 10 = 6 - 7(deflect), ineffective
Adisakti: 29(athletic) + 23(launch) + 20(clarity) + 53(stealth) + 50(range) + 80(d100) = 255
Acolyte2: 179
Damage: 255 - 179 = 74% * 10 = 7 - 7(deflect), ineffective
Maka and Adi both launch missiles from a surprise position but are unable to capitalize on the advantage, the arrow and javelin failing to penetrate some armor under the emblazoned surcoat.
Taylar nods...
Taylar begins running in an arced path toward the rear on the line barreling straight at the man on the left at the rear of the line. The man turns, brandishing his buckler and drawing his short sword to defend himself.
Taylar: 35(aggression) + 31(athletic) + 22(fury) + 50(d100) = 138
Acolyte3: 30(analysis) + 20(readiness) + 12(obscure) + 75(d100) = 137
The acolyte manages to get his buckler in the way of the incoming blow, saving him from harm but severely damaging the shield. He returns attack but it poses no threat to Taylar.
Raven Elk... picks the closest cleric at the rear of the line and manipulates Way to generate a... high pitched sound...
OOC: Roll: 84
Raven Elk: 25(thump) + 21(bending) + 84(d100) = 130
Acolyte4: 30(clarity) + 20(conditioning) + 75(d100) = 125
Damage: 130 - 125 = 05% * 10 = 1
Mind: 10 - 1 = 9
Raven Elk: 20(aggression) + 17(athletic) + 25(fury) + 84(d100) = 146
Acolyte4:137
Damage: 146 - 137 = 09% * 20 = 2 - 7(deflect), ineffective
Just as Raven Elk stabs at the other opponent at the end of the line, he shakes his head as if pained from something only he can hear, his woolen armor protecting him from the following spear thrust.

Even before everyone else begins to move, Vittero circles far around to the left to approach from the far flanks, the shadows coalesce around him like they would for Maka and Adi as he runs. He fires on an unsuspecting foe in the middle of the line, but only manages to wing him.

The clergy who have not yet physically attack all state the same mantra, “Surrender to the Light. Let the radiance guide you.” It is obvious to the Outliers that these men are attempting to manipulate Way lines in order to alter an enemy’e manner of thinking, but their effectiveness is much too restricted to be of any effect outside the range of touch. It appears that they are unaware of this limitation.

The two fighting Taylar and Raven Elk continue to pursue melee. The others merge to form ranks but as yet do not see any other enemy.

This time Taylar's going to put some effort into his strike. He will use his shield for defense.

Knowing that the priests are fond of corded cloth armor, Maka has the idea to set that armor on fire; rather than focusing on his opponent directly, he will choose the indirect approach. Maka knows that if he can burn away the armor, he can turn the priest into a pincushion. For extra measure, he takes a piece of flint from his belt pouch, knowing that the flint will augment his manipulation of heat.

Manipulate Way: Base roll of 83;
Projectile Attack: Base roll of 84.

Raven Elk realizes immediately that this corded armor is quite effective against the usual types of attack; but sees the reaction his sound attack caused. He uses his new shield to parry any attacks while using Way to create another sound attack.

Attack roll: 69 (mulligan--- 96)

Taylar: 35(aggression) + 31(athletic) + 22(fury) + 73(d100) = 161
Acolyte3: 30(analysis) + 20(readiness) + 12(obscure) + 70(d100) = 132
damage: 161 - 132 = 29% * 20 = 1 - 7(deflect), ineffective
Acolyte3: 12(bending) + 30(heat) + 70(d100) = 112
Taylar: 36(conditioning) + 22(fury) + 30(d100) = 88
damage: 112 - 88 = 24% * 10 = 2
Body: 10 - 2 = 8, hurt
Taylar and his soldier priest have neither one managed to gain a physical advantage over the other, but in the course of combat, the acolyte brushes into Taylar causing his body to heat unnaturally. It heat enough to hurt.

(Seeing) that the priests are fond of corded cloth armor, Maka has the idea to set that armor on fire; rather than focusing on his opponent directly, he will choose the indirect approach... For extra measure, he takes a piece of flint from his belt pouch, knowing that the flint will augment his manipulation of heat.
Maka: 24(heat) + 39(bending) = 63 * 2(flint) = 126 + 83(d100) = 209
Acolyte1: 20(conditioning) + 12(fury) + 70(d100) = 102
damage: 209 - 102 = 107% * 10 = 11
Body: 10 - 11 = -1, incapacitated
OOC: NOTE: anything worn or in full contact with a bender has the full resistance of the bender, including clothing and weapons
Acolyte1: 30(fury) + 12(athletic) + 20(aggression) + 70(d100) = 132
Maka: 18(readiness) + 34(defense) + 22(analysis) + 84(d100) > 132
Adisakti: 29(athletic) + 24(finesse) + 20(clarity) + 85(d100) = 158
Acolyte2: 20(readiness) + 12(defense) + 30(analysis) + 70(d100) = 112
Damage: 158 - 112 = 46% * 20 = 9 - 7(deflect) = 2
Body: 10 - 2 = 8, hurt
Deciding to manipulate thermal way against his opponent, Maka is forced to forsake his bow and close to touch his enemy. As he does so, he easily avoids an awkward attack to lightly brush is finger across the chest of the acolyte. His corded hauberk ignites in flame, causing severe burns and incapacitation.

Adisakti, a mere fraction of second later, darts after Maka to close with his own opponent, causing him a minor wound with his harnin spear.
Raven Elk... uses his new shield to parry any attacks while (manipulating) Way to create another sound attack.
Raven Elk: 25(thump) + 21(bending) + 96(d100) = 142
Acolyte4: 30(clarity) + 20(conditioning) + 70(d100) = 120
Damage: 142 - 120 = 22% * 10 = 2
Mind: 10 - 1 = 9 - 2 = 7, dazed
Acolyte4: 20(aggression) + 12(accuracy) + 30(fury) + 70(d100) = 132
Raven Elk: 21(readiness) + 17(defense) + 25(analysis) + 84(d100) = 146
Finding a pattern that works, even though it is not as damaging as hoped, Raven Elk avoids the physical confrontation, do again bombard his enemy with painful sound.

Vittero continues to keep his distance. He fires a second arrow at his first target, this time finishing the foe. Understanding the concept of the darkened archer, two of the unengaged soldier priests move to close with the shadow who is Vittero. The remaining three double up on Taylar, Maka, and Adi.

Knowing how deadly it is to be outnumbered, Taylar seeks to use his Athletic skill to make a trip attack against his opponent. He will augment this attack with Way to Thump his opponent, using a piece of Slate to augment Thump x2. While doing this he will attempt to keep his first opponent between him and the other approaching soldier.

Remaining rolls: 95(+74), 98 (+11), 53, 85

Maka will turn his attention to the next acolyte, intending to do the same thing, albeit lacking another piece of flint. However, luck is on his side, as he lays his hands upon one of the two remaining acolytes who are on him, causing his skin to heat to unnatural levels!

... Taylar seeks to... make a trip attack... He will augment this attack (by manipulating) Way to Thump his opponent, using a piece of Slate... he will attempt to keep his first opponent between him and the other approaching soldier.
Remaining rolls: 85
Taylar: 28(aggression) + 31(athletic) + 22(fury) + 95+74(d100) = 215
Acolyte3: 30(analysis) + 20(readiness) + 12(obscure) + 65(d100) = 127
damage: 215 - 127 = 88% - 12(contortion) = 76% *10 = 8
Mind = 10 - 8 = 2, injured
Taylar: 35(bending) + 22(thump) = 57 x2(slate) = 114 + 98+11(d100) = 223
Acolyte3: 20(conditioning) + 30(clarity) + 65(d100) = 115
damage: 223 - 114 = 109% * 10 = 11
Mind = 2 - 11 = -9, unconscious
Acolyte3: 12(bending) + 30(heat) + 65(d100) = 107
Taylar: 36(conditioning) + 22(fury) + 53(d100) = 111, resisted
In an unprecedented change of tactics, Taylar throws his body weight into his opponent with a powerful kick that send him sprawling a good 8 strides back. At the same time he makes contact, he generates a painful pulse of sound while resisting unnatural heating. The combination of the kick and the thump render the acolyte unconscious.


Maka: 24(heat) + 39(bending) = 63 * 2(flint) = 126 + 83(d100) = 209

Acolyte2: 20(readiness) + 12(defense) + 30(analysis) + 70(d100) = 112
