  • [IC] Exalted Seas

    Heading towards the black beacons that punctuate the evening gloom with their wrongness, you round a corner onto a scene of destruction. To your left, a tea house is partially collapsed and ablaze, a gaping hole smashed through its front and glass shards strewn into the street. To the right, an older man lies slumped against the corner of a shuttered store, battered, signed, and bleeding, surrounded by a guttering anima banner of saffron-yellow light.

    In the cobbled street between are the sources of the black anti-light. Two men and a woman are advancing upon the fallen man, darkness radiating from them and blood running down their faces from ebon caste marks cut into their foreheads. The woman, clad in a captain's greatcoat and wielding a daiklave of matte black metal, leads the group. Only a step behind, a man in a lace-trimmed silk shirt stalks forward, knuckles bloodied. The last man hangs back, a pair of flamepieces in his hands and a bandoleer of more across his chest.

    The Crafter surveys the scene fumbling at his potions in his jacket searching for something. "This darkness worries me but they are clearly after that other fellow. Should we help him or help them apprehend him.

      Ethan sees the older man outnumbered and alone, as well as the burning teahouse.
      "Check for survivors," he orders, waving a number of his men into the blazing building. Then spinning his spear he steps forward eyeing the scene before him.

          West Sparrow nods at Ethan's words. "Clearly, we need to protect the old man." He smiles and jumps, soaring on the wind to land in front of the old man.

            Do you know who these people are Ethan? I don't like bullies but if they are within their rights to persue him I would not wish to interfere in their duties.

              "They came from the ships below... I think it's safe to say that they have no rights here." Ethan steps up beside West Sparrow, but addresses the man on the ground. "May we assist you elder? My sailors can provide first aid."

                Do they have any weakness, Metals like Iron, or Silver, Elements Air, Earth Fire, If they are from below the probably favor water and darkness. That usually means Light and fire will be effective but not always. If you have any knowledge I might be able to come up with something to give us an upper hand.

                  Seeing that the man is unconscious, Ethan waves another of his men to tend to the man's wounds.

                  "I've found that even immortals tend to object to a foot of steel in their guts." He adjusts into a ready position, spear pointing towards the oncoming group, the rest of his own men arrayed around him.

                        Hearing your threats and witnessing West Sparrow getting between them and their prey, the three Exalts fall easily into fighting stances.

                            Initial Initiative Order
                            Gunslinger: 16
                            Mizuchi Marines: 11
                            Ethan: 9
                            Captain: 8
                            West Sparrow: 7
                            Banfiz: 5
                            Bloody Knuckles: 3

                            Initial Positioning
                            West Sparrow and the unconscious man are at short range to Banfiz, Ethan, and the Mizuchi's marines. Both groups are at short range to the Abyssals.


                            Acting faster than seems humanly possible, the gunslinger snaps a flamepiece at Ethan, firing a gout of acid green flames, before vaulting to the rooftop of the store.


                            Withering Attack Roll at Ethan: 15d10x7 3 - Due to using the Abyssal equivalent of Flashing Vengeance Draw, this is unblockable (so, use Evasion, not Parry).
                            The gunslinger's jump puts him at short range above West Sparrow.
