  • The Mizuchi's cannon roar again, raining fire into the harbor district in an attempt to exterminate the Abyssals pursuing Ethan, but without the element of surprise and Ethan's precision spotting succeed only in setting buildings ablaze. The captain leaps out of a window, splintering the shutters, and rolls to her feet on the street behind Ethan and begins to make up the ground lost to the cannonade. The brawler kicks open the door of the building he took shelter in, the thatch roof burning hungrily, and rejoins the chase as well. The sea fort's cannon booms again, but this time the iron ball hammers into the Mizuchi's plating.

    The gunslinger leaps out onto the pier, feet flying from the top of one pile to the next, the leaps again onto the prow of a moored ship, its sails and rigging aflame. He dashes down the length of the vessel to the stern, obviously aiming to get close enough to tackle West Sparrow.


    Roll 5 of 6. Only one more to go. Everyone gets 5 motes back.

    The gunslinger spends 1 mote on Monkey Leap Technique and 3 motes on the Athletics Excellency.
    Chasing: 13d10x7 9

    The captain spends 4 motes on the Athletics Excellency
    Chasing: 12d10x7 3

    The brawler spends 4 motes on the Athletics Excellency
    Chasing: 10d10x7 4

    This puts the Abyssals at 86 successes to your 83 successes.

    • West Sparrows keen ears pick up the sound of boots on a ship, and a roar of fury flies from his mouth. "I haven't come this far, just to fail now." he screams. He jumps in a zig-zag pattern, dodging away from the flaming boat. "I am a leaf on the wind, watch me soar!" He channels every ounce of power and will he has left, rushing as fast as a albatross in a dive. His anima burns brighter, adding a different light to the flames in the harbor,. The light trails behind him, sliding through the waves that splash into his wake.
      Dex 4 +Ath 3 + stunt 2 = 10 base dice. Spending 3 motes on lightening speed to get one auto success and to reroll 5s and 6s until they fail to appear. Still have Graceful Crane Stance turned on (as it lasts a whole scene) as well as Feather Foot Style (as it lasts until I stop running). Spending 7 motes on the Athletics Excellency, and a point of willpower for another automatic success. Anima banner is now at burning level. 17 total dice. Running across the harbor: 17d10x7 2 Rerolling 5s and 6s: Reroll Running to Harbor: 5d10x7 1 Reroll of 5s and 6s again: Re-reroll of running in harbor: 2d10x7 0 plus 2 auto successes = 5 total successes.

      • Shouting in joy and relief as he nears the water, Ethan points towards West Sparrow and the elderly Banfiz and bellows across the short expanse of rippling bay, "We have their backs, cover them!"

        He then arcs in a clean dive to break through the surface of the water, his anima and own unique ties to the sea propelling him as though he were a sea dragon, the black jade of Uminchu sparkling in the glow of his anima banner. The Mizuchi is at hand, its sailors and marines answering the call, and so too does Mizuchi herself, sliding silently beneath him, a darkness only distinguishable to even his eyes in the flash and flicker of the ships' cannons and marines firewands just overhead. The young dragon blooded traces his fingers along his familiar's flank, baring his teeth in a feral grin. His pursuers know not what they chase, or that hunter will momentarily become hunted.

        Having made his will known to the rest of his school, Ethan arcs up again towards the surface, to prepare his ship for an immediate departure, and an immediate dive.


        Contest roll: 8d10x7+1: 4 (one more from spent willpower)
        3 motes Tactics Mean Everything, 3 motes Feeding Frenzy (adding two dice like before), all 6 are personal motes
        Command roll/marine/ship contest roll: 16d10x7: 8 (no 6s to reroll)
        Mizuchi: Prepares to grapple the first enemy passing over her to pull back beneath the water, depth lurker means she can be at "long range" and may rush... We also never settled on how exactly she is "magical or extraordinary" mechanically. For now I'll roll the 8d10x7 grapple, you can tell me if I should do something else: 8d10x7+1: 7 (one more from a spent willpower)

        • BanFiz surveys the carnage around him. He see's his companions fleeing towards Mizuchi and knows he needs to do something to catch up. He sprints towards the dock with the best line to reach the ship and pulls out his firewand. Talking to himself and hoping the goddess might here him, "If this works I will pay a tribute to Luranume". Knowing he needs to time the perfectly he leaps from the dock pointing his firewand behind him. As he nears the top of his ark he pulls the trigger hoping the flames will provide the additional momentum and allow him to complete the jump successfully.


          https://orokos.com/roll/818056 Rocket Man : 12d10x7 7

          I somehow buy or talk Kyle into an additional 5 dice beyond basic stunt.

          Spend willpower for 1 success.

          • The gunslinger fires upon the mast of the ship, the blast of green flame eating away at the already weakened wood. The mast snaps under its own weight with a loud crack and begins to fall towards the bow. The Abyssal leaps upwards, catching hold of the mast and using its falling mass to catapult himself out over the bay, aiming to tackle West Sparrow. As the gunslinger flies towards the Solar, Mizuchi bursts upward out of the water and seizes the man's leg in her fanged maw, dragging him down into the water with her. The Abyssal rapidly frees himself, bashing the sea serpent repeatedly with the butt of his flame piece, but West Sparrow is past him before he can recover.

            The ship's dragon cannons belch fire again, bombarding the other Abyssals. The blaze engulfs the brawler, throwing him back into a building and burying him beneath burning rubble. He digs himself out, scorched but alive, and continues to push forward. The captain, however, meets the flames head on, her sword carving apart the torrent and deflecting it around her. She continues to charge towards the Mizuchi as BanFiz rockets from one of the piers, managing to crash land upon the deck of the ship.


            Roll 6 of 6. Time to find out what happens next.

            The gunslinger spends 1 mote on Monkey Leap Technique, 4 motes on the Martial Arts Excellency minimizing Mizuchi's grapple on him.

            The captain spends 4 motes on defending herself.
            Chasing: 6d10x7 4
            Forgotten Stunt: 2d10x7 2

            The brawler spends his motes on defending himself.
            Chasing: 6d10x7 1

            This puts the Abyssals at 96 successes to your 100 successes.

            • "Blessed Isle!" West Sparrow yells, turning his head to briefly see something jump out of the water just in time to stop the gunslinger's leap. "What in the hell was that?" Shivering, but still running, he turns back to his task of getting to the ship. Rather than waiting for someone to lower a rope, he continues running, cleanly timing his steps to switch from parallel to the sea to parallel to the ship's hull. "Medic! This man needs a medic!" he shouts, repeating his message until he can bound over the railing and skid to a halt on the deck of the ship. "Please is there a medic on board?"

              • With the grace of a sea dragon, Ethan breaches the surface of the bay, landing lightly on his feet beside West Sparrow. Eyes widening in surprise as a flash lights the air behind him and the master craftsman they'd fought beside crumples to the deck before them.

                "My men will have prepared things to aid Elder," he tells West Sparrow, helping to lower the old man they'd pulled from the wreckage to a stretcher that a pair of sailors runs out to them even as he speaks.

                "Deba!" He shouts for his first mate. "Prepare to dive, all here are my welcome guests, and we will let the sea wash any other trash off our decks! And you two," Ethan waves over two deckhands and indicates his new allies, "show these two to the wardroom or infirmary as they desire."

                Finally, Ethan rushes off to help the Mizuchi make way.

                • Surprised his gamble worked BanFiz looks at the chaos around him. Seeing no immediate danger he slowly picks himself up and tries to clear his head. Stumbling he heads to the entrance to the below decks.

                  • The sailors carry the old man below, the saffron-yellow glow around him dying away even as you watch, leaving the most brilliant lights on the ship's deck the anima banners of Ethan and West Sparrow. The men making the ship ready to submerge, stowing gear and furling sails, give both a wide berth. The men have long since learned that the captain's anima can strip flesh from bone if they aren't careful, while West Sparrow receives many wary glances and hears the men whisper "Anathema" to one another.

                    • Knowing there is nothing he can do about his anima banner except wait for it to fade, West Sparrow ignores the whispers; actions that proved his loyalty to the captain and his ship, would have to be enough to keep the crew from freaking out. "Please show me to the infirmary," he says as politely as he can to the deckhand. "I'd like to see the Elder."
