RE: Perses VS Cothurnus

Perses Stormbringer ❊
The North Remembers

Perses was finished sparring with Hera. His wounds were superficial. Being scratched by dull claws barely drew blood. Though strangely, it felt healed*. He stood in the middle of the stretch of a muddy, wet terrain though he barely noticed the cold temperatures as a wolf of the north.

He was in a good mood, fairly proud of himself for the idea of lifting Hera into the air. But he was also proud of Hera for holding her own. He felt guilty about not being there for her.

The King in the North felt good enough to continue his sparring today. He decided to howl for an spar opponent and then began to set his defenses.

His stance widened, legs bent, paws digging into the wet terrain of the Arena. Because he didn't want to give his opponent the wrong idea, his muzzle remained smooth and his jaw was closed, and his head was held high, not lowered with his eyes wide to look for his opponent. His hackles were flattened as he didn't want to start a real fight and his ears remained high. His tail was held for balance as he waited for his opponent. He hoped he would be able to get home safely.

RE: Perses VS Cothurnus

Cothurnus was colorfully pleased with the victory against artbook kitty, despite having to haul their whinging, burnt-arse home*; it was peevish and painfully monotonous. Why must it be this hard? Why, on heaven’s earth, must she be punished for no dahm reason? Well, atleast she wouldn’t have to babysit their pedestal of children. A great relief to the horned woman, needless -- however, a howl graved from the arena once more, prospering challenge -- eyes of wine and cerulean narrowed in suspicion, meticulous. Who might it be this time? She didn’t care, actually, because whoever it was, she’d fuckin’ welt ‘em into a monastery of mud and grit. It was the greed for glory that fed this wolf’s appetite. There was a moment of silence as her breath lumbered low, ears pinned and maw devilishly wrinkled –– aiming to come from the man’s rear by five-feet, realisation paved a sturdy path. Oh, you’ve got to be kidding me. If it wasn’t the oh-so mighty king of a realm she paid no mind in remembering; if it pledged no importance, Cothurnus buried it in a box. However, that did not mean she’d forget what had happened. A tasteless and soundless snarl molded into the knight’s brutish smirk, hackles baring dominance in spite of her sly, quiet intermission, legs spread and tail flicking. Now this was going to be fun, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. The arena’s turmoil had turned slimy and wet, wreaking disadvantage if she chose to make a move -- although, such an instance was easily avoided by a test of sheer stubbornness. And magic, of course. Building an abundance of electricity, she therein attempted to activate dynamo at the oreo boy’s rump directly, head low and jaws clamped shut for protection. Even here, she would not risk a fatal blow.

She, Cothurnus Rose, would not hold back today.

A great testament of arrogance, willpower and competitiveness coveted every hack, tooth and silver she’d sworn to acquire by raw power. And not to state the obvious, but she hated fuckin’ losing.

RE: Perses VS Cothurnus

Perses Stormbringer ❊
The North Remembers

Perses wasn't ready when she came up behind him though because he had been ready for an opponent and she came up five feet away from him, he scented a new scent a bit too late as he barely registered the wolf but recognized the spell from a spar that was two years ago. He was trying to turn around to meet her and the spell scorched his tail.

The beast gritted his teeth from the second degree scorch his tail. He snarled, turning the pain into anger as he turned to face her head on. The smell of burnt fur filled the air.

Perses remembered her thanks to Eidetic Memory. She was the woman who almost killed him when he was a Valkyrja Cadet. He remembered the burns she gave him and the wall of fire and the flames she shot out of her mouth. But the beast had water magic.

The beast was also a practiced fighter now. His hackles raised for intimidation and his tail was limp as he was in too much pain to move it. His muzzle was wrinkled in a snarl and his eyes were narrowed in a glare towards this woman. His stance was widened and his stance was widened, his paws digging into the muddy, wet terrain of the Arena. His head was lowered, jaw opened to bite. As his only way to really show dominance, his ears were shoved forwards.

"Fucking coward," he snarled at her.

The beast attempted to move to be two feet and a half away from the she-wolf, attempting to activate Geyser under her ribcage. His tail hurt and he was going to pay her back for everything.

RE: Perses VS Cothurnus



Cothurnus Rose
My Punches Hurt More.


It was an untimely turn of events, but no matter, because Cothurnus Rose was no fuckin’ quitter -- a ghoulish, unsavory and brutish snarl fabricated from the woman’s wrinkled maw. Bred of stubbornness and preeminence, of course. A grain of grit spat from her open jaws, not caring for what damages may be done; if it’s a fight they wanted, then it’s a fight they shall get. She practically laughed at their blare of irate, eyes of wine and cerulean narrowing in dark contemplation, therein veering to move left in evasion of the oreo boy’s geyser. Although, not without nearly slipping under the muck of cyfton’s arena. No, not today; sable hackles danced in a ballot of dominance and province, gilding a wrath that had yet to be tamed. Oh, so that’s how they wanted to play? Did they truly believe it was going to be that simple? She wouldn’t let him victor again –– the last was a mere fluke and the knight wasn’t one to let it go so easily –– she’d make them eat shit. Cothurnus growled, spiteful and battleborn like a flaming pit of lava. Now aiming to face the man’s right shoulder by three-feet, flamethrower would attempt to be activated in a stream of fiery orange and bleeding red. She’d aim for the deltoid brachioradialis, head no longer tucked in safeguard as it spewed in tenor, ears pinned and legs spread once more for balance. The ground, it was wet and uneven, something the horned woman didn’t like one fuckin’ bit. Cothurnus stared, valiums of a desired victory waging war in her feverous actions; she was no coward, and they’d come to understand this, one way or another. Taste the fire, heh.

It was they who’d be showing mercy, period.

Tail high, the wolf feared not of the outcome.

RE: Perses VS Cothurnus

Perses Stormbringer ❊
The North Remembers

Perses mentally cursed and screamed as she dodged his geyser attempt. And it continued to pump water making the wet terrain even wetter. His poor white coat. Though he had more pressing things to worry about. At least it might stop her from making walls of flames, he hoped.

His eyes were narrowed at the fiery woman. And his ears were flattened for protection and his hackles were raised in anger and for intimidation. His muzzle was wrinkled to reveal sharp ivories, jaws closed to grit his teeth in pain, head lowered for protection. His stance was widened, legs bent, paws digging into the now wetter ground of the Arena. His tail was held limply as he was in too much pain to do anything else with it. The burnt fur created a horendous sight as did the angry salmon-colored skin from a second-degree burn.

And then he wasn't ready for the flames thrown at his deltoid brachioradialis from three feet away and in anger he attempted to activate Geyser under her head in retaliation. The new burn hurt a lot and he had to focus hard, grit his teeth, and try to channel the pain into anger. He was getting more beat up this time.

RE: Perses VS Cothurnus



Cothurnus Rose
My Punches Hurt More.


There was no turning back from here, and Cothurnus, by god almighty, would see it through ‘till the very end. She had no qualms or doubt of this arrogant, conceited and ghouling conception; oceanic-maroon’s narrowed in quick collection, drugging their colour over the oreo boy’s features. My, the smell of burning flesh was more satisfying on a thorn that didn’t deserve its blade —— cut, plucked and beaten —— she wouldn’t have it any other way, of course. The stream of fire dispersed and her maw wrinkled in a feverish temper, roped by greediness and a taste for victory as her legs continued to spread atop the murky, mud-felt terrain. The geyser made it soppy, and in that moment of closing her jaws for protection, a force sprouted by water practically knocked the horned woman right off her goddahm feet. Yep, and flat on her ass she went. There was anger, fury, and an unprecedented wrath that boiled the knight’s blood; the sheer brunt of it made for a stellar bruising, teeth clashing and head swinging. A grunt concaved in response, gunk now moulding into Cothurnus’ fur as her hackles blared with burly dominance. The wolf’s pinned ears rung and a headache unfolded, daring to discomfort her entitlement to win against this spinesless king -- out of vicious pride, flamewall attempted to activated directly at the man’s frontal region. Wherever they stood, it mattered not. She was mad, a glue of gluttony wrapping the woman’s existence like it was begging to be unleashed. Legs no longer spread for balance, her tail lashed in agitated for their bold infraction —— head low, the monastery of pain that began to swell was simply unforgivable. She only hoped they’d learn not to fuck with a Rose and O’Delk descendant after this: ain’t nothing better, right?

Oh, just burn already, you calicoed cunt.

RE: Perses VS Cothurnus

Perses Stormbringer ❊
The North Remembers

As soon as the Geyser hit the horned she-wolf, Perses began to back away because he didn't want to be too close if she spat fire at him again and it put him approximately five feet away from her. He cursed the Geyser for having to be so close. He could figure out how far Geyser had to be, mostly from watching Hera attempt it. And it wasn't very far. He really needed more offensive water magic.

When the wall of flames happened, he had completely dodged it. What was with this woman and fire? Didn't she know what a spar was? Was she trying to kill him? Perses the Observant noticed that had had not moved, he would be in the flame wall.

Perses's eyes narrowed against the heat, ears flattened for protection. His hackles were raised in intimidation and anger. His legs were bent and stance widened -- though he was gritting his teeth as his deltoid still had horrid burn and it was burning through his adrenaline reserves --, paws digging into the muddy ground of the Arena, made muddier by the two Geysers going off close together. His head was lowered though his jaw was closed because he was gritting his teeth in pain though his muzzle was wrinkled to reveal sharp ivories. His tail was limp, smelling of burnt fur and angry salmon-colored skin* could be seen.

Perses would attempt to face the she-wolf head-on, attempting to activate Slingshot at the she-wolf (had she not have moved) through the firewall, attempting to fling five stones at where he thought** her head and chest were, hoping to hit her forehead, muzzle, and chest with the chest hopefully taking three stones.

He was angry and the adrenaline was starting to go down, making the pain of his burns more apparent.

Wherever they stood, it mattered not.” Even though Perses didn’t explain Coth’s positioning in his previous post, it is up to the RPer to ‘reset their positioning’ when they are able to. Coth was able to adjust her positioning in this post. (she wasn’t being physically restrained to that position)
*Note: I would watch out with the wording as well. I know it was meant for emphasis, however “Wherever they stood, it mattered not” could be read as “Perses is unable dodging this move”. And that is a form of Powerplaying.

Note: Cothurnus should be at ‘Good Health’ at this point from her bruising to her face.

*Note: Aiming for Coth’s rib cage (the midsection area of a canine) is cutting it pretty close (3ft max limit cast range.) This spell is used more for close combat, like you are already attacking physically and want to do a magic attack as well. (Think biting scruff and casting spell.)

*Note: At this point Perses should be at ‘Good Health’ due to the damage he has received.
Move 3 (9)
+0: All defences accounted for
-1 Semi-realistic attack: In Slingshot’s description is “With this power, the user can pick up small stones and pebbles from the ground within 20 feet of them and fling them at a target in one general location that the user can see.” It requires sight. You stated Perses cannot see Coth through the flamewall. So technically he can try to cast this spell but the rocks wouldn't reach Coth since he can't see her. (Aka the spell would fail)
*Note: Perses should be at ‘Good Health’ at this point
Total:
(32.5)


Verdict: As can be seen by the points above, Cothurnus is the winner of this round.

Notes: Overall you both did wonderfully. I wanted to remind the both of you however to remember to always state every character's positioning. As well as remember to read about what spells you are casting. You can also take advantage of physically attacking and magically attacking simultaneously. And don’t forget, as your character takes damage during a fight, their overall health may change depending upon the damage taken.
