    The captain lunges for West Sparrow, hand grasping for a hold on his arm, his clothes, anything, but catches only the wind of his passing. The brawler dives for the old man, hoping to wrest him from the swashbuckler's grip, but narrowly misses.


    The gunslinger jumps down from the rooftops to join the other two Abyssals as they all chase after the fleeing group.


    Since everyone is now running away and/or chasing someone, I think now is a good moment to switch out of normal combat movement

    The firedust impacts where the gunslinger had been standing, a small ball of flame spreading out around it, but the gunslinger lunged out of the way between one breath and the next, his preternaturally fast steps getting him well clear.

    The gunslinger spends 4 motes on the Dodge Excellency, one mote on Drifting Leaf Elusion, and 6 points of Initiative on Reed In The Wind.
    Evasion 5 + 1 Stunt + 2 Excellency + 3 Reed In The Wind = 11 and Drifting Leaf Elusion breaks the tie in his favor.

    The captain and the brawler move to try to trap Ethan between them and cut off his escape, but Ethan slips away.

    Opposing Disengage: 6d10x7 8
    Opposing Disengage: 8d10x7 2

    Ethan now has full cover from people outside the building and heavy cover from anyone following him inside.


    The captain doesn't bother trying to chase after Ethan, instead focusing on the old man and West Sparrow. She steps forward, striking at West Sparrow.

    She uses Excellent Strike for an extra success and rerolling 1s.

    Ethan's strike cuts into the brawler's chest, but leaves only a scratch.

    Bloody Knuckles is still only at a -2 wound penalty

    The brawler slams his palms together, trying to catch Ethan's blade between them, but is just a moment too slow.

    He uses Durability of Oak Meditation to reduce your damage by two and also Iron Skin Concentration.

    The captain answers Ethan's challenge across their locked blades. "What we want from him is none of your concern. Leave him to us and I will let you leave with your lives."

    The dandy, seared and grimacing, doesn't fall back, instead trying to take advantage of the break in Ethan's concentration to land blows on the Terrestrial.

    Bloody Knuckles will - surprise! - use Falling Hammer Strike to keep pushing Ethan's defense down. Ethan's currently suffering from an additional -1 onslaught penalty from the captain's attack.

  • There's always the option of "Choose only one Resonant bonus if multiple are available".



    Good ideas....

  • Thought on using Resonant and Dissonant keywords with multi-material artifacts

    I'm right now writing Evocations for one of my players' suit of armor, which is made primarily of black jade but includes some moonsilver thread. As I was thinking about Resonant and Dissonant effects for those, I thought about how the interplay of two materials can direct the story told by the Evocations (in this case, the Evocations taking up the mantle of a jade-scaled sea monster) and thought "Wouldn't it be interesting if there were Resonant effects for multiple materials for a single Charm?"

    For example, suppose there's a power bow composed of equal parts soulsteel...

    The soldier tending to the old man's injuries shouts a report back. "The old man's bleeding internally, but nothing's broken. Moving him won't make him worse."

    Blade-Deflecting Palm Rerolls: 4d10x7 2
    Ethan's Blade-Deflecting Palm just turned that hit to a miss.

    The flames die away, revealing the damage. Half the man's shirt is gone and the skin beneath, across his arm and chest, is angry red and blistered. The pain obviously bothers him, slowing him down, but he's still up and fighting.

    Bloody Knuckles has a -2 wound penalty now.


    The captain, finally free of the marines, charges towards Ethan, the dandy, and the old man. Her sword, stained with the blood of Ethan's men, flashes out at their commander.

    The captain again uses Excellent Strike.

    The dandy moves with impossible speed, meeting and hammering aside Ethan's blows. The crimson light flows off his hands, splattering the ground like blood with every movement. A pair of feathered phantom wings take shape within the roiling blackness already streaming off of him, shimmering white against the pitch black, and spread wide to announce his power to all nearby. But it is not enough, and the dandy is forced to give ground.

    The dandy spends eight motes on the Brawl Excellency to push his Defense from 4 to 8 against Ethan. With is stunt, that makes 9. He'll also spend 3 motes

    Damage rolls:

    Withering Damage on West Sparrow: 13d10x7 5
    That puts West Sparrow just barely into Initiative Crash and puts the gunslinger up to 27 Initiative.
    Withering Damage on Ethan: 5d10x7 3


    Status:

    Everyone gets 5 motes back.

    Ethan is up next.

    Initiative Order
    Gunslinger: 27
    Banfiz: 14
    Ethan: 10
    Captain: 4
    West Sparrow: 0
    Bloody Knuckles: -3

    The captain cuts into the marines, leaving men bleeding around her.

    The captain uses Excellent Strike to enhance her attack.
    Withering Attack at the Marines: 13d10x7+1 5
    Reroll 1s: 4d10x7 4
    Reroll 1s: 1d10x7 1
    and gets really lucky with the rerolls. That makes 10 total successes.
    Withering Damage on Marines: 8d10x7 2
    That exhausts the last two points of Magnitude for these guys, dropping them to Size 1. They have to roll to resist rout, difficulty 2.


    Ethan's blows leave several rents in the man's shirt, revealing chain mail underneath....

    This time, the marines are not so lucky as before. The captain exploits every flaw in their coordinated assault, tangling men up in each other's way.

    The captain spent two motes on Hail Shattering Practice. With her stunt, that means the marines miss.


    The dandy throws up his arms, trying to catch Ethan's blows upon his forearms, but he can't stop them all.

    Ethan gets to roll damage. The dandy's Defense is 6 and he's going to use Spirit Strengthens The Skin to buy his soak up to 15.

    The captain redoubles her efforts, any mercy gone from her eyes

    Withering Attack at the Marines: 12d10x7 8 + 1 from Excellent Strike.
    Reroll 1s: 2d10x7 0
    Reroll 1s: 1d10x7 0
    Damage to the Marines: 6d10x7 3
    That makes 7 points of Magnitude lost. 2 more and the group has to check for rout.


    "This is Juche silk! You'll pay for that!" The fire burst has left a charred hole in the man's shirt, but that doesn't stop him from continuing to press Ethan with a series of jabs.

    Bloody Knuckles again uses Falling Hammer Strike,

    The dandy tries to dive out of the way, but is almost too late, the flames scorching his shirt.


    Banfiz gets to roll withering damage. The dandy's defense is 5, his soak is 12.

    A note for the future: reloading a firewand or flame piece is its own combat action.
