You must have taken quite a circuitous route through the forest . . .
Taylar smiles and replies, "Yes, we like to follow our own path. Tell us more about this cathedral and castle, but we're not going with you or giving up our weapons."

Raven Elk mutters...
Taylar smiles...
The leader purses his lips in thought and looks around for a second before responding. "The Cathedral is a true display of masonic brilliance. It is made entirely of cut stone. No structure is its equal, not even the Castle, which is build more for resilience. The Cathedral faces East so that its windows may catch the first rays of the Lord of the Day and bathe the interior with his Light."

"Its magnificence is truly worth the view; however, I must convey that anyone armed within the boundaries of the Kingdom, with weapons other than those necessary for the taking of game is considered to be of nefarious intent. Even the guards coming into Outpost with the caravans from Boga City relinquish their weapons upon entry of our border, and they are returned upon departure."

"I am not ASKING you to hand over your weapons. I am telling you that it is necessary or you are in violation of our Law and shall be taken prisoner."

At a gesture from the leader, all soldiers draw their short swords, but none takes any aggressive action. "Be peaceable about this or we are obliged to use force."

Taylar intends to manipulate waylines to increase his Might and Flexibility. He sneers at the soldier and says, "You draw your weapons and tell us to give you ours? Unarmed you could kill us much easier than if we had kept them. Come take them." He manipulates waylines to cause a sonic attack at the soldiers and screams, "Du magst also zulfallige Gewalt!"

Taylar... increase his Might and Flexibility... sonic attack...
Adisakti laughs to himself and begins moving toward the right flank of the assembled soldiers. As he moves his image begins to mimic the surrounding environment. Raven Elk shakes his head at the inevitable turn of events he was expecting. He, too, blends with the environment but begins backing away to put distance between himself and the enemy.
Taylar: motility & strength 33%
Raven Elk: athleticism & camouflage 40%
Adisakti: athleticism & camouflage 42%
Taylar: 54(readiness) + 43(speed) + 26(clarity) + 84(d100) = 207 + 33(motility) = 240
Raven Elk: 36 + 31 + 40 + 50 = 157 + 40(athleticism) = 197
Adisakti: 34 + 36 + 42 + 67 = 179 + 42(athleticism) = 221
Soldiers: 38 + 21 + 12 + 77 = 148
Taylar: 200(bending) - 240 = ~0
Raven Elk: 200(bending) - 197 = 3
Adisakti: 300(move) - 221 = 79
Soldiers: 300(move) - 148 = 152
Taylar: 53(bending) + 33(thump) + 84(d100) = 170
Raven Elk: 53 + 40(toxicity) + 50 = 143

Soldiers: 38(conditioning) + 12(clarity) + 77 = 137
Adisakti: 34(finesse) + 36(accuracy) + 42(clarity) + 67(d100) = 179 + 42(athleticism) = 221
Soldiers: 38(aggression) + 21 + 12(fury) + 77 = 148

Taylar: 54(readiness) + 41(counter) + 36(analysis) + 84(d100) = 215
Raven Elk: 36 + 31 + 30 + 50 = 157
Adisakti: 34 + 42 + 30 + 67 = 173
Soldiers: 38 + 20 + 12 + 77 = 147
GM: NOTE: Taylar's bludgeons have a damage factor of 12, not 10, due to having ranks in Heavy.

S1: 170 - 137 = 33% * 4 = 1. Mind: 10 - 1 = 9, irritated.
143 - 137 = 6% * 4 = ~1. Mind: 9 - 1 = 8, dazed.
215 - 148 = 67% * 12 = 8 - 2(soak) = 6. Mind: 8 - 6 = 2, staggered.
S2 - S10: 143 - 137 = 6% * 4 = ~1. Mind: 10 - 1 = 9, irritated.
S3: 221 - 147 = 74% * 22 = 16 - 4(deflect) = 12. Body: 10 - 12 = -2, incapacitated.
S4&5: 173 - 148 = 25% * 12 = 3 - 4, ineffective.
S6-8: 215 - 148 = 67% * 12 = 8 - 2(soak) = 6. Mind: 9 - 6 = 3, staggered.
The leader of the squad becomes irritated at the force of the insult, even though he cannot understand the words. Able to affect the entire group, Raven Elk poisons the mind of all of the soldiers, causing the leader to be a bit dazed, while irritating all the others.

Adisakti very quickly closes on the right flank of the formation, cutting down one of the soldiers with his first swing. He is able to counter the assaults of the additional ones who engage him but is unable to cause them harm.

The leader and three others make the great mistake of charging in on Taylar, who counters all of their attacks with vicious effectiveness, staggering all four with blows from his bludgeons.

Raven Elk is able to avoid the assaults of the three who engage him.

In the three seconds of first contact, this looks to be a very one-sided battle.

Grabbing one of the Sunstones, given as part of his share of the treasure, Raven Elk manipulates the Way Lines while using his spear defensively keeping the three soldier's attacks at bay. Feeling the essence of the Sunstone and Way Lines in combination, Raven Elk increases his Persona in the realm of formidability toward his assailants, while muddling the thoughts and tactics of the three opponents. He then uses his spear skills to turn his continued defense into offensive action.
Using a combination parry-reposte battle methodology, Raven Elk continues to confuse them when the attackers realize their strikes against the shamanistic-looking man before them keep turning back on themselves. Their own blades, that being those of their comrades-in-arms, are causing more damage to each other than any blows struck against or by Raven Elk.
OOC: Can't seem to get the spoiler key to work on my smartphone today.
Rolls, one against each soldier--- 84, 33 (add 74, from a mulligan for the roll of 47), 59 (mulligan to 95).

... Sunstones... Raven Elk... muddling... spear... defense...
Taylar continues to the soldiers.
Adisakti is better suited to countering than assaulting, but his speed allows him to press the advantage, instead of waiting on the encroachment of the enemy.
Taylar: motility & strength 33%
Raven Elk: athleticism & camouflage 40%
Adisakti: athleticism & camouflage 42%
Taylar: 50(bludgeon) = 50, 100, 150, 200, 250

Soldiers: 38(conditioning) + 12(clarity) + 67 = 127
Taylar: 55(aggression) + 43(accuracy) + 33(fury) + 184(d100) = 315 + 33(strength) = 348

Taylar: 54(readiness) + 41(counter) + 36(analysis) + 184(d100) = 315
Raven Elk: 36 + 31 + 30 + 95 = 192
Adisakti: 34 + 42 + 30 + 140 = 246
Soldiers: 38 + 20 + 12 + 140 = 210
GM: NOTE: Raven Elk needs to acquire 1 rank in Tactics in order to use counter.

S1: Mind: 8 - 6 = 2, staggered. 348 - 210 = 138% * 12 = 17 - 2(soak) = 15. Mind: 2 - 15 = -13, unconscious, dying.
S2,5,9,10: Mind: 10 - 1 = 9, irritated. 237 - 127 = 110%
S3: Body: 10 - 12 = -2, incapacitated.

246 - 173 = 73% * 12 = 8 - 4(deflect) = 4. Body: 3 - 4 = -1, incapacitated.
S5: Body: 10 - 7 = 3, injured.
S6-8: Mind: 9 - 6 = 3, staggered. Mind: 3 - 15 = -12, unconscious, dying.
With unimaginable speed, Taylar moves into action, striking all four of his opponents before a single one can swing his sword. The blows are phenomenally powerful and accurate, splitting open the skull of each soldier, who falls to the ground, dying.

Adisakti, not quite as quickly, gives both of his remaining opponents a vicious cut with his saber, finishing one with a counter from his knife. He takes an insignificant cut from the second man.

Raven Elk says, "Surrender!" with such command that the four who remain, including the injured opponent of Adisakti, immediately drop their weapons and lay face down on the ground. Raven Elk is a bit surprised at the effectiveness of his word, never before having attempted such.

In just under six seconds, the entire squadron is defeated.

Raven Elk, more surprised than anyone, keeps his wits about him enough to motion Adi and Taylar to surround the prone troops, bringing their weapons to bear in case one of the prisoners should try to escape...or attack.
"Well, well, well..." Raven Elk thinks to himself, "I will have to remember that trick."

Taylar intends to separate their weapons from the soldiers, which he puts into a pile. "Your own aggressive nature brought this on you. We just wanted to talk."

Raven Elk... motion... bringing...
Taylar... separate...
Each of the shoulders remains lying on the ground as his sword and utility knife are removed. The injured soldier is the only one who is doing much moving, and he is only applying pressure to a wound.

After Taylar speaks, the soldiers move, slowly and deliberately to seated positions. One of them replies. "You stand among the Shadows as Dusk would draw a man. The Shimadow and whatever tribe the other one is are both Blighters. Their skin hides in Shadow even in the Light of Day. It is our sworn duty to bring all into the Light. You would not surrender your weapons. We had no choice but to resort to aggression. Though you slay us now, as your might has proven superior, we shall be received into the warm embrace of the Lord of the Day. Our spirit that remains shall be resurrected into a new and glorious body in the next life."

Taylar says to the soldiers in Markidian, "Well, I wouldn't want to keep you from the day-lord." He says to his companions in Maldrog, "I guess we just kill them now."

Raven Elk ponders the words of his friends. More killing? --- or mercy?
Mercy was more appealing to Raven Elk's sensibilities, but they could ill afford being "known". The only way they had succeeded thus far was because they left no survivors...at least, no zealots anyway.

"Taylar's right Adi. Let's be done with them."
