    Oh. Well in that case, kindly disregard the random symbols. Ermine stares up at the ceiling and the bullets plinking down around her.

    "Well that'sh quite nice."


    Are the random NPCs also shot at?

    (1: I actually do admit defeat a lot. 2: Because Riv is now an eldritch horror, due to grafting THAT CAT's appendix onto himself, so getting beaten is gonna be hard. 3: How far out do the shields extend))

    With another burst of light Riv re-appears, this time with weapons strapped to every possible point. Lifting a massive gun he fires a bolt of energy at Emily.

    Unfortunately, Emily is still partway through her perfect defence. She dodges the attack, seamlessly swaying out of the way.

    Speaking of Crissy, she giggles a little at Dorotha's comment, and nods. "Yeah, really. Guess it's a 'mine's bigger than yours' thing, huh?"

    Let's see what the limits of Dodge Charms are. Riv says, pulling out the Time Gun. Bullets materialize everywhere around Emily, forming a rapidly contracting sphere of hot lead around her. Shoul someone try and parry the bullets they will weave out of the way, as they're homing bullets designed to avoid the whole "hide behind a rock" bit.

    Also, bit of a retcon in Dorotha's backstory here... >_>))
    Dorotha nods. Oh, yes. I used to see it a lot. My father owns a tavern you see, and while it's not a seedy kind of tavern where thugs and adventurers drink, you still get situations like this one.

    Wenomir, meanwhile, looks around for someone not involved in the fight to talk to.

    Ermine isn't involved in the fight! At least, she isn't actively fighting. She is a small ermine wearing a big and floofy hat with outrageously oversized feathers in it. Oh yes, and is getting a bit drunk from a bottle o' grog almost as big as she is.

    "You underestimate," says Emily, leaping upwards, pushing off of the air as if it were walls, rising higher than the bullets, and drawing her cannon once more.
    "The ExALTED!"

    She fires down, the blast big enough to consume the bullets, and curves the beam towards Riv. As she does, swirling power around her forms a shimmering petal shape, like a flower of gold and bloody red.

    (These bullets are folding time around themselves like origami. Stopping them with any metaphysical powers is not gonna work, also the bullets were in a sphere formation around Emily, so if you jump you'll run into them.)

    Fine. Riv says, holstering the gun. As it's obvious this won't be resolved through shooting each other, let's resolve it in the barbarian way you people favor. No Exalted charms or tricks, no technological wonders invented by a genius beyond anything the Nexus has ever seen. One versus one bar brawl, no other holds barred.

    Isn't it a bit much for a weasel? Yeah, he thinks Ermine is a weasel. He's not exactly big on zoology. When he hears Riv's proposal, he shouts: That's the spirit!

    "No." she said simply. "You are a danger in the eyes of the unconquered sun. If you're gonna attack people in the bar, someone needs to stop you!"

    ...she's gonna regret this later.

    (Sorry, who did I ignore? If you mean the bullet hell, the Exalted do have a perfect dodge thing, and I couldn't think of a better way of describing it. In actuality, she probably spiralled through, curving her body at amazing speed to go between the bullets)

    Fine Says Riv, pointing and clicking the gun from various angles. I'll just go kill some random people because you wouldn't take my generous offer. Or you could fight me here, on the terms I metioned, and I'll swear never to kill an innocent again. Of course, to make the stakes even, if I win I get a sample of Exalted magic. I'll give you one last chance to accept.
