Title: Sentinel Test 2.
Darshe - August 9, 2010 12:14 AM (GMT)
Running another test of the sentinel mage, again with Darshe. This time however he will have a warrior secondary(effectively flipping his classes around)
His warrior perks will be:
Combat Caster, Loner,Boon,Combat Medic, and Aura Cleave.
He will be equipped as follows:
Rune Sword, Sword of Light, and a Jewel Staff.
Strength Ring, Protect Ring.
At my post count Darshe will have every sentinel spell except ultima and supernova.
Limits? I'll be at my post count you bring yours. If you don't like yours I'll spot you 500(I.E. If you feel you're too low bump yourself up 500 extra posts.) Again anyone is free to enter, just warriors might want to skeedadle(you, me and giant fireball makes th--....oh wait just me.), and psychics are not allowed to use anti-m(defeats the point of the test)
Now I know I'm supposed to set the stage for these things but I'll let my opponent choose the scenario for this one.

I hope I did everything right, if there is any problems just tell me and I'll fix it.
Things weren't looking too good. I was still very far away from my next destination and I was running out of supplies. It was a beautiful day outside, so I tried not to be so worried about food. I guess it paid off because I found a nearby village that must have been stocked with food! It was surrounded by large plots of land the was cultivating all kinds of vegetables, fruits, and other tasty agricultural goods. I made my way down to the little farm town with an empty stomach and some gold, hoping that I can get a decent price.
I was relieved to find the people there were extremely friendly. A majority of them outside working smiled and waved at me, and I felt welcomed. I guess my bad day without anything to eat wasn't so bad after all. I waved back at the workers with a smile on my face and continued to enter the town market. After stepping into that little store, I didn't want to leave. It was overstocked with dairy products, produce, meat, liquor, and even baked goods.
I purchased more than enough supplies to last me the rest of this trip, and even had a decent amount of gold left over. With the extra gold I decided it would be great to have a nice meal and found myself a nice little restaurant that had great food! After that meal I was tapped out of gold, so it was about time for me to get going and continue my walk. While exiting the restaurant, I had eye contact with a young woman about my age. She seemed to be very paranoid and gave me an awkward stare, and also exited. I walked down the road with the woman a little ahead of me, and she was wearing some sort of fancy shoes that looked pretty uncomfortable. The next thing I know, she drops her bag and trips on her shoes and started falling. Since I was able to see it before it happened, I ran right up and caught her before she hit the ground.
I expected to hear a gentle "thank you" or some sort of grateful response, but instead she just started screaming in my ears. She pushed me off of her and ran a distance to get space in between us. She looked scared out of her mind and started shouting at the top of her lungs, "HELP ME, SOMEONE IS TRYING TO MUG ME!" . I was astonished and looked at her stupidly, then at her bag on the ground in between us. Oh this must look real bad to anyone else around. I tried to calm her down and assure everyone that I wasn't trying to mug her, but my efforts seemed to have no affect on the panicking woman. So, she continued shouting and I stood there awkwardly trying to explain myself. I really hope no one decides to intervene and try to stop this "crime".

(Aw cmon...a fake mugging? Really? aw well...time to play deluded superhero.OOCness shall abound.)
What was it about Darshe and answering every womans cry for help he could manage to get to? He had heard the yell and immediately changed direction, heading for the damsel in distress obviously in need of rescuing. The thief didn't look like much, Darshe doubted he'd have much trouble dealing with him. "Ya know...I really hate it when guys like you trample on women like this." Darshe was already filling in the blanks of the story in his head. "You guys who try to look all innocent and pretend you're nice but really, you're the worst kind of backstabbing, shadow sneaking, dogs." He frowned as lightning crackled around his left hand, which was already reaching for his sword. "Unfortunately for you today, you ran into me. Which means you won't be leaving here unpunished."
(...bleh post. Yes you did everything right...and sorry i took so long, just it was hard for me to find inspiration to get into this setup.)
Calignious - August 14, 2010 03:55 PM (GMT)
OOC: My bad I couldn't really think of anything else since I know my character wouldn't attack you unless you made the first move. After I looked at your bio I saw that you probably wouldn't attack me for nothing either, unless it involved a woman XD.
I knew this was going to happen, and I had no way in stopping it. It really sucks when something this stupid occurs, one second I'm enjoying the day and the next I'm getting yelled at and threatened. I just couldn't help but stand there like a confused moron, and then someone walks out of the crowd to punish me? I think I was way in over my head, but it was too late now this guy wanted to fight. I'm not gonna let him punish me for something I didn't commit, but at the same time I didn't want to fight someone for no apparent reason.
This guy looked pretty scary, and the flashing lightning that appeared out of nowhere didn't help me. He was reaching for his sword, so he must mean business. Business that I didn't want to be a part of! I quickly glanced back at him and turn my head to look at the faces of the crowd. All of them looked at me with such disgust that I felt pretty sick to my stomach. The best thing I could do was just get out of here and get back to my merry way.
I didn't know how to respond to this guy's accusation, I was overwhelmed and pressured so I didn't say anything at all. I just shook my head, and started running in the opposite direction as fast as I could. I allowed myself to manipulate the wind around my body as I began running, causing my body to feel light weight as the wind slightly pushed me from behind. By manipulating the wind ahead of me I was also able to make my body more aerodynamic. In other words I was running away pretty damn fast.
Darshe - August 14, 2010 08:29 PM (GMT)
Yeah probably, that's actually one of the reasons I usually keep Darshe out of these PvP matches, coming up with a reason for him to fight and stay in character is hard because he's so laid back most of the time.
Darshe blinked surprised at first then reminded himself he was dealing with a common thief. Of course he ran, that was what thieves did. "So it's the hard way huh?" He said mostly to himself as he gripped the hilt of his sword drawing Ascension, the light blade. Maybe this could be fun, it'd been awhile since he'd been the one chasing down a fleeing opponent, usually they either stood and fought or he was the one who had to get someone or something out of harms way. It was a nice change of pace being the hunter for once.
"Well here we go." Darshe took off in pursuit gaining at first, he was the faster of the two but his quarry was using some kind of ability to speed himself up. "Fine, Outrun THIS then." Since they were in a town he couldn't use any of his more powerful spells, at least not without either clearing the area of figuring a method of localizing the damage to just his target. Collateral damage would be a problem so he went with a small one. "Thunder." He pointed a single finger at the fleeing back of his soon to be victim and the bolt was loosed hardly a fatal amount of electricity but enough to burn flesh at the point of impact, and enough to stun a man long enough to catch him or at least that was the idea.
Fry him, thwack him, and drag him to the nearest authority figure to do his time. Or maybe just fry him and thwack him if one didn't happen to be around, and tell him he was getting off easy.....ok so the plan was a work in progress but wasn't it always?
Calignious - August 14, 2010 09:02 PM (GMT)
Haha, maybe I can just run away from all my problems! The gate out of this village is coming up ahead, if I can just get out of here maybe this guy will stop chasing me. Even so, if he continues to pursue me I would be able to stand my ground and defend myself without harming the village. For now all I had to do was get out of here, I don't have time to go to jail or to explain my innocence so I just kept running and running.
I peered over my shoulder as I ran every now and then, to find the guy still chasing me. When I looked over to him again, I see him pointing my finger at me and I started thinking he might just give up and point at me out of anger. Nope, he just shot a ray of static at me and it coming at me fast. I couldn't let myself get hit by his attack, or else I wouldn't be able to make it out of this village. My head turned to face straight up ahead of me, and as the zap of light flew at me, I forced my body to leap off of the ground with the wind blowing me up quite a height. I glided for awhile towards the left and kicked off the wall of an ugly building wall. When I kicked off the lightning blasted into the ground where I would have been if I kept running. Kicking off of this wall, I turned my body to face this punisher and landed on the ground skidding backwards.
When my body came to a full stop, I focused my concentration on the ground touching my feet. Molding my energy with the earth, I stomped my right foot mightily on the ground. This motion caused a wave of sand, pebbles, and small rocks to burst into the air and float there with the wind. I created an effective dust cloud that should force the attacker to close his eyes, and loose trace of me! After creating the cloud, I turned around and continued running towards the gate in the same manner, using the wind to push me out of this village. The cloud was pretty tricky but in a couple of hours it should subside and be safe for all the villagers, I hope I didn't cause too much trouble.
When I got out of the village, I continued running a bit to gain some distance between the village and myself. I turned around and waited to see if this guy was still going to chase me. I didn't want anyone following me on the rest of my journey trying to kill me or anything, and if I had to settle something it would be best to do it now. The terrain here seemed to be pretty plain and normal, trees scattered here and there, it was nice and grassy and enough open space to fight.
Darshe - August 14, 2010 10:06 PM (GMT)
Darshe watched with growing irritation as his attack was avoided. But then the method of avoidance as well as what he did after caught his attention. This was no mere common thief. He had skill, possibly even could be a challenge! There was no way he was going to just let him go now. His interest piqued Darshe had to find out what the kid could do.
When the dust cloud kicked up Darshe sucked his teeth making an annoyed "Tch" sound and jumped, "Aura" a faint bluish white aura surrounded Darshe and he hovered in air then soon rose to alarming heights, the glow of the aura would be harder to make out with distance against the blue sky and sunlight. Though it would not stay sunny for long, Darhse already had his next plan once things went away from civilization he could fight freely so he simply followed from above until his prey slowed to observe his surroundings. "Time to bring the thunder. You'll regret leaving town kiddo." He reached back for his staff which was slung over his back. The finely crafted jewel staff, he doubted he'd need it's magic but just in case the spell backfired or something he'd rather have had it ready.
His magic began to gather around him, he spread his arms out wide, the staff in his left hand and sword of light in his right, as lightning crackled, swirling around him and gathering into a array of electricity in the sky. "For he who has strayed from the light let light crash down upon him and show the error of his ways." "Crash of Thundagan" As he spoke the incantation the lightning swirled in the sky, forming a sort of vortex of lightning as it flashed and danced, sparks and bolts coming and going new ones forming and merging into others, and as he uttered the spell's name it all began to merge and crashed down with a deafening boom lightning thrashing out in all directions, and the sonic boom(Aka thunder) created at the site was enough to fell trees nearby.
Darshe himself was blown farther back into the air by his own attack, he always was forgetting how potent these spells were and used them carelessly. But his opponent had shown control over earth, excessive lightning power might not have necessarily been excessive enough if he caught on in time.
Calignious - August 14, 2010 10:50 PM (GMT)
This guy wasn't going to leave me alone now was he? I made it out of this town and he still chasing me down and now he has some sort of staff out? It looked like he was talking to himself now, or was he talking to the sky? I looked up into the sky and noticed that it was no longer sunny, and black clouds swarmed over us all. "Aw shit. This can't be good, first little flashes of lightning and now he's summoning a storm of lightning!?" I was sure grateful that I chose to learn earth alchemy rather than puny water alchemy or even metal in this case would suck.
I had to think fast, I was probably unable to dodge a strike of lightning so I was going to have to take it head on, or almost head on. "If that bolt hits me, I'm dead." I slapped the palm of my hands against the surface of the ground. The lightning was gathering in the sky, and a compact yet effective dome of earth enveloped around my crouching body. I molded the dome with the strongest segments of the earth I could find, but that was not all.
When the strike of lightning flashed and the sonic boom of thunder rumbled, my body sank into the ground as I used my alchemy to create a tunnel straight down into the crust. The trees collapsed all over the dome of earth, but it withstood the heavy weight. However the intense power of the lightning struck down the dome of earth and created an incredible explosion of light. After the blast was hit, the dust of the dome was floating all around the area and it was difficult to tell what exactly happened.
When the dust settled down it was easy to see that the dome did not withstand the sheer force of the spell. The area was covered in broken rock and rubble. Of course I couldn't see what was going on, being underground but I did know my barrier didn't hold. I hope that this guy thinks he killed me and leaves me alone. However I don't have much air down here and I'm struggling to breathe, I might have to resurface and use this chance to perform a sneak attack. I haven't delivered one attack yet, but maybe this hidden and surprise attack will get him off my back. For now I have to wait as long as I can until I get the perfect chance.
Darshe - August 15, 2010 12:28 AM (GMT)
As he reeled from the blast and blinked a few times to set his eyesight straight, Darshe slowly regained his bearings and the sight that awaited him was disheartening. He had been able to see the kid's attempt at defense just before the blast but obviously the blinding white flash had erased any hope of knowing what exactly happened.
All that remained as evidence was smoking scorched earth, sheer heat had set some of the vegatation ablaze, and there was now a bit of a crater where the bolt had struck. Darshe sighed looking down at the scorched earth below "Ah man I overdid it again." He said to himself running a hand through his hair. "He didn't quite deserve to be turned to nothing." but it was too late to be worried about that now, he lowered himself closer to ground level, though still not landing directly on the ground. "Watera." He cast the spell simply in it's basic form water gushing out in all directions with him as the center, and he simply 'air walked' allowing the spell to continue and soak the earth with water which sizzled as it went to work putting out the flames and also cooling the still hot earth.
"Nobody could've survived this with just a silly dome for a defense." With one last look around and making reasonably certain he had mended the damage he'd caused as best was possible with his abilities he made ready to leave and go on back about his business.......but something was bothering him. "Shouldn't there have at least been clothes or something?" He thought, scratching his chin. "Ah whatever....."
Calignious - August 15, 2010 10:14 PM (GMT)
It was pitch black down here and the only thing I could here was my own breathing. I could feel the earth on my fingertips and knew that this guy wasn't standing on the ground. I couldn't tell where he was, he could be in a tree, he could be floating, or he could have left. I sure hope it was the last one, but I can't be too careful. If he was still there he might know that I survived and was doing his own sneak attack. I continued moving beneath the ground, creating more tunnels into different directions. Creating small cracks to the surface was easy and gave me enough air for the limited time I was down there. The feeling of roots wedged in the earth was near and I made my way over to them.
Finally I formed a tunnel straight up to the surface, and crawled my way out behind this large tree. Everything seemed pretty wet and this tree looked charred. I'm guessing it was on fire from this guy's attack but was put out with what? Rain? I peer for a second from the tree to see he was casting a water spell. Maybe he was trying to drown me out, maybe he knows I'm underground!? He stopped shooting water and looked around, it even looked like he was looking for me! He might be on to me, if I leave now he'll know where I am and will chase me down. I had to put a stop to this fight before he shoots another blast of lightning, and I think this would be my best chance.
Knowing where he was floating, I moved back behind the tree and out of sight. I concentrated on compressing the oxygen around myself and this tree. I fully compressed the wind into almost invisible blades, and allowed them to shoot out from behind the tree and towards the attacker. These wind blades should prove to be difficult to spot, and I hope that he doesn't catch on in time. I wasn't aiming for any vital spots, the blades instead where making their way to strike his wrists and parts of his forearm. These blades don't have the strength to severe any of his limbs but were meant only to pierce the muscle and maybe force him to drop his weapons.
Darshe - August 16, 2010 12:42 AM (GMT)
Darshe was all set to leave, in fact in the process of doing just that, albeit slowly, when the pinging sound of something hitting metal caught his attention along with the sensation of a slight push against his arm. He paused and looked around once more, then at his arm, minor cuts had slit the leather of his jacket and the noise had been from the impacts against the metal platelets hidden in between the layers of leather. No real harm was done as the blades of wind lacked the strength to cut through metal. He glanced at his other arm and found similar though not as extensive superficial damage there too. He turned around now, "So..still alive huh? Shoulda just kept quiet and played dead.I like this jacket you know, so this makes things kinda personal."
The staff was no longer necessary though so it went back to it's place on his back as he now glided in the direction he could only guess the blades of wind had come from. But the remaining trees were an annoyance. No doubt he was hiding in or behind one of them. His left hand raised reaching across to his opposite side "The breath of light which hewn the darkness" "White wind." his hand glowed and he swung it out leaving a glowing trail behind it as a large crescent of light energy formed and launched itself forward but he was not done "White wind!" He repeated sweeping his hand back again, creating a second blade, this one closer to the ground and finally he lashed out once more "White Wind!" the third blade was larger than the first two but all were meant to cut straight through the trees removing the one annoying obstacle hiding his prey. Though of course he could just as easily be cleaved along with the trees if he didn't move.
Calignious - August 17, 2010 04:56 PM (GMT)
The sound that the blades of wind had against his opponent isn't what I wanted. I was expecting maybe a cry for pain and the sound of him dropping his weapons, but instead it sounded like he blocked them. I looked out from behind the tree to see what happened, and in return I just see a bunch of rays of light that started cutting down some of the trees. There was more than one, three of them to be exact and they where all coming down on my general direction. If I wasn't careful enough one of them might just kill me, I had to get away from here but it would reveal my position. I didn't have a choice.
Jumping off of the ground I was able to manipulate the wind to allow me to glide up in the air. Thus, I flew up above the the blades and continued to fly up but I forgot about the trees falling everywhere and I wasn't paying attention. A large tree started collapsing right behind me, and several branches bashed over the back of my head. Followed by the bark of the tree ramming on my backside, and I started to fall to the ground. More of the trees decided to collapse over me, and I hit the ground before any of them actually fell on me.
When I hit the ground it hurt pretty bad, but if I didn't act fast I'll die when those trees fell on me. They were all gonna fall on me and I closed my eyes, concentrating on the earth. Two small pillars rose from my side, and the trees collapsed on them. They held still and gave me a little room to slide out from beneath the tree. Opening my eyes, I faced the source of the attack and saw that my attack was deflected my some sort of metal armor beneath his jacket. I crawled out from beneath the collapsed trees, and stood up swiping the dirt from my clothes. Pulling out my critical sword from my backside, I moved into a stance holding the sword up in front of me with both hands. I probably looked pretty tired, mostly from dodging or surviving all these attacks. Not to mention getting whacked on the head by a tree, and hitting the ground. My clothes and my face where dirty and bruised, but I wasn't ready to give up. Running away wasn't an option since he would just chase me down.
Darshe - August 17, 2010 11:50 PM (GMT)
Darshe hovered over the new mess he'd made. He was still levitating and the elevated position gave him a good view of the destruction but he still could not determine where his little mouse had gone. He was certain somewhere in the debris the kid was probably still alive, if he'd survived that lightning spell he'd survive a few falling trees.
"Oh come now...you can't keep hiding forever. At this rate I'll eventually get you without you ever launching a real attack and I do want to know what you can really do before this is over. Don't disappoint me now." He called out waiting patiently, no new attack just yet though he was gathering magic for something, building an aura of magic for some yet unknown spell. What exactly he'd do with it remained to be seen.
Calignious - August 18, 2010 03:49 AM (GMT)
If he wants me to show him a real attack, then I will. If it at least gets him off my back, I might as well. I swung the sword downwards, holding it with a single hand glanced over from behind the rubble of all the trees. The mage was still hovering up in the air at the same spot. I was relieved to find that he didn't start moving around, and made himself such an easy target. He might be ready to make some sort of counter, but this might be another chance top stop this. I started to ignore my exhaustion, and began to focus on the earth. It was going to be like last time the same cloud of dust, but this time much larger. Forcing my energy into the ground, I manipulated the small and medium sized rocks, pebbles, and sand to explode up into the air. The mass of dirt and rock contaminated the air, and floated all around the mage in the air. The dirt must have irritated his eyes, and at least force him to close them.
This time I was using this cloud to attack not to hide, so now I started to focus on the oxygen in the area. A second after the cloud of dirt and rock was summoned, something new was created. Molding the movement of the wind, I created a pretty large tornado that swirled in a circle around the mage. All of the dust and rock just surged into this tornado, and hopefully so would my attacker.
After creating the large tornado, I started to manipulate the earth once again. This time I got the biggest slabs of earth and boulders I can find beneath the ground and tossed them into this tornado. That should cause a lot of damage to someone, a bunch of heavy rocks flying around in a tornado with a guy in it? I hope it impresses him or at least knocks him out so that I can get out of here. I jumped up to the top of the rubble made by the collapsing trees, and watched to see what was going to happen. If he made a move, I'd at least be on guard or if he somehow got away.
Darshe - August 18, 2010 03:28 PM (GMT)
He waited, and waited, and then there was movement. No small movement, just a sudden upheave of dirt and dust likely other small debris but he wasn't exactly taking the time to look for any tiny stones. He sucked in a breath and held it to keep from inhaling too much dirt, which he knew could have negative side effects later. He brought his arms up shutting his eyes, and concentrated, all that magical energy he'd been pulling in was about to be put to use.
So far he'd seen earth and by now he could guess wind control by the nature of this attack which was beyond simple earth manipulation alone. Which meant Alchemy was at work here and his jewel staff was useless. But since he knew what elements his opponent controlled he had a fair idea of how to fight against him.
But there wasn't much time before whatever the little bugger had planned kicked into action. What exactly that was wouldn't be secret for long as everything began to swirl more and more rapidly. A dust tornado, as he rose higher into the air to try to escape the dust he activated his ring and formed a protective barrier blocking out physical objects and giving him a reprieve from the swirling dust, the dust inside the barrier without wind to kick it around simply settled at the bottom of it and he went back to breathing normally. Though by now the tornado had formed and he was caught in it with no real way to tell which direction was the eye and which way was out he was forced to try another method of dealing with it.
Something solid smashed against his barrier and startled him because he barely had time to see what it was in the thick dust cloud which was passing as a tornado. He could only guess it was some large rock, but then another and another hit. Or was it the same one again and again? His barrier would not hold against such assault he realized as not just the large stones but the smaller objects as well were grating against the barrier and straining it if he didn't act quickly it would all fall apart and he would be exposed directly to it all. "Well done kiddo. Well done. I asked for it and I got it. But this ain't quite over."
The torrential rain which drowns all, soaking the land and flooding the valleys. The dark tide which drew back the ocean and sent forth the crushing wave which washes away all before it and sinks cities to the ocean floor. Come forth now and drown the earth in your waters. Crush my enemy beneath your waves! "Watergana"
Again and again pounding had resounded against the barrier as he cast the spell. It cracked and began to split allowing him to hear the howl of the wind as he finished the spell the sky went black as night. His shield shattered as the skies opened up and the torrent poured down. One of the large slabs smacked right into him almost immediately after the protect broke which in some ways was fortunate as his body in comparison with the slab was small and it indirectly protected him from the grinding of the smaller particles in the tornado, but hell if it didn't hurt like a bitch. He could hear the downpour of heavy rain, and see the dust beginning to be washed away or cake into mud and slowly visibility got better, enough that he could see he was headed directly for another large slab and if he didn't move soon would become the messy bloody filling in a rock and dead man sandwich but it was hard to move against the wind. Hard to do anything really, when swirling about in a tornado. He had long since lost the focus to keep his levitate going and was now simply kept aloft by the tornado itself. Then the watergana spell kicked into gear and the visibility went to crap again as the rain became downright blinding. He could only imagine what it looked like down below by now but there was no time for that.
'Big rock coming to kill you' he reminded himself though why it hadn't hit already was beyond him, and then slowly he realized the rain which was pelting hard enough for whatever exposed skin on his body there was to already be raw from the punishment must have pushed him or it slightly.....or so he hoped. No sooner had he thought that than did it actually hit, but not on center, so he was partly right. It smashed into his slab and spun him and the slab but the net effect was to send him hurtling off into the air again with no support. "Lovely mess Darshe." he said to himself. "Now stop screwing around and get out of it." But he couldn't see how, unless the rain cooled the air enough to disperse the tornado, but with an alchemist involved there was no garuntee that would work. If the torrent knocked the kid down though...a momentary break in focus would do it. Or.....maybe if he ran to avoid drowning.....
He lit up that's right, he'd turned the area into a valley earlier with that ridiculous lightning spell. The water would flood the cratered earth and spread out and run into the trees he'd felled...unintentionally forming a makeshift dam! There was a tiny bit of hope after all. But for now...he was stuck.
Calignious - August 19, 2010 04:21 PM (GMT)
He was now in the palm of my hand, and there was nothing he could do about it! Or was there a way out of this? Of course there is always a solution to any problem but I hope he isn't smart enough to think up of one. I was glad that my attack was a success, even if he had some magical barrier around him it still got him stuck between a rock and a hard place (heh I love the puns). Now that his barrier was down, it was only a matter of time before he gave up to the relentless barrage of boulders that where ramming him around the tornado. However I couldn't leave my guard down, this guy was full of mysteries. All I had to do was continue focus on the tornado's formation and it might be soon all over.
Of course things can never be easy, and my opponent did think up of something. I was amazed that he could do so in such a horrible position, flying in circles and dodging boulders wasn't exactly your average study hall. Not only did he think of something but he was able to cast a magnificent water spell that can get him out of this pickle. Thus, in a few seconds a huge torrent of water just poured over me and this whole area. The water stung my eyes, and it was difficult to keep focus over the tornado. I had to bear the downpour for just a bit longer, so that I can finally finish this but things got more difficult. The water was ridiculous, it was everywhere and soon enough there was a huge rush of water moving straight for the trees that I was standing on. The massive water was terrifying, and when it struck it would probably send me flying backwards and would stop my alchemy!
I couldn't let this happen of course without doing a finale of some sort that could guarantee my victory. I focused as hard as I can on the tornado and its direction, focusing more on the top of the tornado to be exact. With one fell swoop, and a huge breathe the tornado collapsed on itself with a large gust of wind surging form the top of the tornado down to the bottom. At this moment, The wind ceased to spin around in circles and everything inside of the tornado came crashing down towards the earth's surface. Hopefully, this would bury the mage in large boulders and knock him disoriented on to the ground. It was quiet possible that he could drown in his own created water since it seemed to gush out everywhere.
It was difficult to tell whether he had any chances of survival. Hopefully he does escape this ordeal with his life, I have no intention of killing anyone. Even if they intend to kill me. After that blast was done, I gave up the control of wind in the area and took the blast of gushing water against the trees head on. The momentum of the rushing water forced me to fly off of the trees, knocking me down into the ground behind the tree rubble. Amounts of water seeped through the tree barks, and before I can regain my balance I found myself floating in a small river of mud.
Darshe - August 29, 2010 01:47 AM (GMT)
And there it was, his opening! The chance he had waited for! The tornado suddenly stopped letting everything freefall and Darshe who had been trying to focus in that chaos now found it so easy in comparison that it was like a weight had been removed from him, or wait, that was probably the relief from the lack of wind force pushing on him.
He fell a few dozen feet then stopped as if something had grabbed him in mid air, he was again making use of his magic to defy gravity. Of course the promise of coming down face first into water of unknown depth from an unknown height with who knows what kind of solid most likely rocky objects in it would do wonders for a guy's ability to focus on the spell that'd save his life.
It had been useless inside the tornado, since any attempt to hover would simply have been made moot by the wind force. Here however with the wind stopped he had a decent chance to finish things. Problem was......where was his opponent?
He looked around ignoring the fact that rocks, and probably parts of trees and whatever else the tornado had picked up were falling all around him, if something was going to hit him he'd be alerted by the sudden blackness it's shadow would create above him and have maybe a couple of seconds to react before it smacked him anyway, panicking here only meant he'd spend all his time avoiding and none attacking.
He took a deep breath "Well...if I can't see him...and the tornado stopped.....maybe he drowned?" Fat chance. That was just too lucky Darshe was lucky but not THAT lucky. He was lucky in the sort of way that though bad things always happened to him he somehow usually came out ok. Not lucky in that 'Oh I hate you you bastard for your amazing luck. Who kills an enemy with a randomly thrown stone?!' kind of lucky. Granted he wasn't exactly throwing stones but hoping his opponent just stood there and drowned was right up there on the 'lucked out' scale.
He was about to cast something when naturally it suddenly got darker "Damnit." he used the protect ring again, letting it's barrier form as one of the large slabs from earlier had been thrown up into the air when the tornado dispersed suddenly and it came down on top of him. His barrier held from the single hit. But he had wasted valuable time.
"Thundaga!" He cast the spell without incantation, worried another rock or whatever would fall and interrupt him again. It was hardly enough to electrify all the water but enough that he could probe the area with a few casts and listen for the yelp of pain when the electricity finally DID find a live body in the water.
"Thundaga!" he cast it again sending a second bolt into the water.
"Come on...come on....THUNDAGA!" he cast it once more, with emphasis, scattering the bolts in different sections, like calling out shots in a game of battleship and hoping for a hit.
