Post Re: Roll to Dodge - Illusia
All right. We have our last two. HEN and Ociamaruu, you two are good to go. Tomorrow afternoon I will post the opening.

Edit - Screw that. I'll just post the opening now.

It seemed a peaceful day in the bustling city of Colber. Then, suddenly, the bells tolled, and soldiers' voices echoed through the area.
"Colber is under siege! The east gate has been attacked! All civilians, move to the town square and seek shelter! All military personnel are to move to the east gate to fight off the invasion!"
Invasion? Who would, or could invade Colber, the most well-fortified city in the Southern plains? Many people (including you six) rush to see exactly what is going on. And all, when they do finally lay eyes on the cause of the commotion, cannot believe their eyes.

Demons.

They seem to be humanoid, with greasy brown fur and menacing teeth and claws that look as deadly as any blade. And there are many of them. Too many. Where they came from, no one can say, but they are coming. And they are coming quickly. They leap over the walls of the city and charge ahead, plowing through soldiers like human cannonballs. They approach. Ready yourselves.

And by ready yourselves, I mean start equipping weapons. If you read all of the original post like you were supposed to, you should know that you must EQUIP items. So get on that.

-This has been changed due to the annoyingness in having to use a turn to switch weapons. You can now switch weapons freely with no negative modifiers.

The demons get to your position in one turn.

My gauntlets were already on, as I'd been workin' with 'em. And, well, I'm not really going to be using my hammer as a weapon but more as a tool.
>:Search for any of the higher-ranking guardsmen, and ask what I can do to help.

Post Re: Roll to Dodge - Illusia
Rolling the dice of fate....

Ociamarru (5)

You speed off towards the nearest city guardsman you can see. He seems panicked. The rank by his collar shows that he is a captain.
"What can I do to help here?" you ask quickly.
The soldier responds. "If you have any fighting skills, please, help! We need all the men we can get, or we stand no chance! Here, if you need a weapon, take this blade." He tosses you a shortsword, then quickly turns back to the fight, ready as the demons get closer... and closer yet.

Inv.
-Hammer [3]
-Shortsword [3]
Eq.
-Gauntlets [2]
P-Abilities
-Expert Craftmanship (+1 to metalwork)
A-Abilities
-None
Injuries
-None

Nonsequitorian (1)

"Oh! We needs to get to the watch tower! Vite!"
You rush to the nearest tower, but your eyes are distracted by the fast-approaching demons. Before you know it, you're there, and you run face-first into the watch-tower wall. Wuhhh... you feel dazed.

Inv.
-Dan's Black Powder Rifle (1/1) [4]
-Powder Horn and Ball Bag (50/50) [3]
Eq.
-Nothing
P-Abilities
-Ranged Mechanical Weapons Knowledge (+1 to repair if roll is 2 or lower) (+1 to use of Dan's Rifle) (-2 to bow and arrow)
A-Abilities
-None
Injuries
-Dazed (-1 to next roll)

Hyperkultra (1)

You quickly pull out your trusty dagger, then search around desperately for another weapon you can use. There doesn't seem to be anything around. You find plenty of bodies, sure, all shredded beyond recognition, but any useful tool has also been destroyed.
"My, my, what an exciting start to the day...." Urggghh....You don't seem to be taking the bloody battlefield very well.

Inv.
-Hip Flask [2]
Eq.
-Dagger [2]
P-Abilities
-Sleight of Hand (+1 to dexterity)
A-Abilities
-None
Injuries
-Feeling Sick (-1 to next roll if it is a 2)

Adam (1)

You try to calm your mind to prepare for the coming battle, but there's too much noise!
"Could you people shut up so I can mentally stabilize myself?!"
Oh. That was just great. Everyone's going to think you're mental now. Headache....

Inv.
-None
Eq.
-Knife w/ Knuckled Handguard [2]
-Chainmail [4]
P-Ablities
-Fist Fighter (+1 hand to hand combat)
A-Abilities
-None
Injuries
-Headache (-1 to next roll)

HEN (5)

You see Nonsequitorian run into the wall of a tower, and decide that he has the right idea. No, not the faceplant part, the "get into the tower" part. You run like the wind, racing over to the tower and up it. Once at the top, you equip your crossbow, and aim out of the window. There's a demon below that you feel you could easily hit.
"Well, this is a better way to start off a morning than coffee."

Inv.
-Sickle [4]
Eq.
-Compound Crossbow (6/6) [3]
P-Abilities
-In the Shadows (+1 to stealth rolls)
-BOOST - Clear Shot (+1 to next attack if it involves shooting)
A-Abilities
-None
Injuries
-None

Tokochiro (6)

You pull out your cane and look to see if anything is underneath your robe. Strangely, there seems to be something... moving. It's... oh god. You feel fur. It bites your finger, and you yelp, grabbing and tossing out the... oh. It's a raccoon.
"That was quite a wake-up call. I still prefer coffee, though."

Inv.
-Bandages (5) [3]
Eq.
-Cane [3]
P-Abilities
-Helping Hand (+1 to assisting friends)
A-Abilities
-None
Injuries
-Bit Finger (No Effect, Heals in 2 turns)


Nighthawk's Opinion of the Turn (or N.O.T. for simplicity's sake.)

That one kind of sucked as a first turn, didn't it? Sorry some of you guys got ones, and you're now riddled with status effects, but I tried to keep them as not-so-serious as possible so it wouldn't kill you off in the first fight.

The demons are nearly here. They'll attack in the next round!

Sorry, but you can't use magic. Yet. I know that you guys probably want more info, but all I can say is that all will be revealed later. There is a whole system for how to obtain active abilities. If you want magic, you need to get an active ability, and until this first fight is over, you will not be able to do that.

So just survive this one, then everything will become clear. Until then, Tokochiro, you must change your action. Another thing - Befriending the raccoon and launching a tunderbolt are two major actions. You can only make one.

>>Peak around wall of the watch tower to see the horde of demons. Look for large weaponry like a catapult or cannon. If there is, try to man the weapon.
