    On the downside though, the short range of the weapon pretty much ensures the Fyarl will be able to flail a claw at him once or twice before One can get in an attack.
    The creature is a bit distracted by First at the moment, and as a result doesn't pay much attention to One as he advances. His limbs are flailing around as it struggles to get up, though, so he may get hit if he is not careful.

    With a sharp step backwards First avoids being crushed beneath the falling demon, as well as putting himself directly behind it where the mucus-blasts shouldn't be able to reach him*. Turning the point of his blade towards the Fyarl's throat he stabs downward with all his genetically enhanced might, hoping the creature's armor might be weaker at the neck.
    Fortunately for First, the Fyarl is incapable of doing the freaky exorcist head-twisting thing. The creature's armor is no weaker around the creature's neck than it is around the rest of his body, however.

    ((Ah, yes, I suppose I did fail to adequately describe their weapons. One is wielding a bronze sickle enchanted to increase his speed each time he draws blood with it, while First is using a longsword made of Blue Ice, essentially magic ice-crystals that never melt. Alpha is using a simple steel dagger, although he too has a Blue Ice longsword, because a knife is obviously better suited for close range combat such as grappling.))

    ((You should keep actions in one turn. Well speaking of DND terms you go 2 terms in this post. Just an advice. I know it's hard, but some actions may not work due to the enemy.^^))

    Fenghar is able to hit the neck, but it doesn't seem like it killed him. In the same moment the blue gloom seem to dissapear and even Aladar could notice that he loose his grip on the blade. as the disease should take place...it doesn't. It appears like this Fade isn't affected by disease. Well bad illusions, but it worked. Because right in the moment Fenghar hits it the real Fade appears to his left swinging his sword right at Fenghar in an attemp to dissipate him.

    Well for clearing. As Fade fought Aladar his shadow came back. Fade backing away. His shadow cast an illusion around him real enougth so the rats don't brak it, but also covering Fade's real movement. since his shadow is on ground he sees Fenghar and Fade makes his move to the side.

    If Fade hit's of miss he will after it fall down into his shadow. ((Assuming the clod from befor showed it's effec in the plants around))
    Fenghar ducks low, dodging Fade's attack and attempts to disperse into flowers along with Aladar. They begin making their way into the air and if they do they'll stay there for awhile

    His weapon isn't enchanted per-se, but it is made of a special meteoric metal worked into the steel. That's the reason it's black. It's far harder than a traditional steel sword, but it's in no way magical. So your call.

    If the crab is still kicking several of the men have been struck with broken limbs, and in one case, ribs to match, but more continue the onslaught.

    Definitely noticeable then.

    Alpha begins heading back towards the fight, catching his second wind and picking up speed as the pain from his newly cracked bones begins to fade. Another advantage of being bred of warfare. His dagger was lost somewhere mid-flight, but that hardly matters considering the lack of effect any blade has upon this demon.

    No, Alpha's purpose is distraction and his blue ice longsword shall serve just as well for that. Mustering his strength and forcing air into his battered lungs, the supersoldier throws himself into a headlong rush past the demon, seeking to dodge around the Fyarl and flank it with his brother, throwing in a quick strike at it's side as he goes.

    The creature is a bit distracted by First at the moment, and as a result doesn't pay much attention to One as he advances. His limbs are flailing around as it struggles to get up, though, so he may get hit if he is not careful.
    Flailing limbs are less a concern and more a target. One stays just out of reach, darting in to slash and slice at any appendages that come too close, each strike carrying considerable power. And if any do by luck manage to cut through the Fyarl's shell and draw blood, well, One's speed shall increase even more!

    Fortunately for First, the Fyarl is incapable of doing the freaky exorcist head-twisting thing. The creature's armor is no weaker around the creature's neck than it is around the rest of his body, however.
    Damn. There was no harming the creature this way it seemed, all their attacks coming to naught With a snarl First turns and retreats, heading back towards their employer. What any of the brothers see, the rest know it as well, the demon's reaction to the mere sight of that lighter shared between them quick as thought. It was a long shot. But it was better than hacking at this beast all day to no avail.

    "The lighter! We need it!" He shouts to Finbar, hoping the man will have the common sense to toss it over.

    Adir's armor protects him from the claws - it's made from the shell of a markedly similar beast that Grantz and the stag defeated not long ago. Also stony, and quite resilient to piercing attacks.

    The young buck twists and growls, attempting to fire his pistol into Tovpir's underbelly. Hoping he can finish this now. That leaves him open for the tail, however, which could bode very badly.

    Once the half dragon have replied two swords, a halberd, three knives and a morning star flies towards the half dragon while six knives, five swords and three arrows starts to circle around him.

    Katagi itself slowly starts to move towards Harnel, spreading out like a wall before him.

    As the first of the weapons rockets towards him, Harnel will move into a spin. Bending low as he spins, he sweeps his blade with one hand - it won't be enough to really damage any of the weapons flying towards Harnel, but effective positioning should allow for him to block most of the lighter attacks; namely, the daggers.

    as he spins, he lowers his body so that one of the swords will go over him - both, if possible, and at is it flies past his free hand will wrap around the hilt. If successful, he'll continue his spin, and will end up once more facing Katagi. But as he finishes his movement he'll bring both swords into a striking parry against the weapons still coming at him, Conflict spinning to strike the Halberd and other sword into the dirt while the stolen blade will be forced to clash with the morningstar Katagi threw at him.

    And then? assuming Harnel managed to hit any of the weapons into the dirt, his tail will move around the grip to pick it up almost immediately after. if he successfully managed to knock down the second sword, that'll be his choice.

    And then, with a backwards motion of his wings, Harnel launches himself backwards off the cliff. Unless stopped, he'll spin in midair as he falls and will open his wings once he's through the canopy, to move down easily, though certainly not gracefully, to the ground. Cover would be needed for this sort of battle, after all.

    The shadow Fade is in won't move. it changes a bit, but it's still a normal shadow missing the person who throws him. A voice comes from it.

    "I have to say you fight nice, but I hold back myself. Give up and we can end this here."

    It's Fade's voice with the echo again.

    [Mountain Path]


    I wouldn't say his claws are piercing. They are more like a big hammer. After all he will try to get Adir wherever he can with his claws. The shot itself hit's, but Adir may soon notice that the bullet only broke the stone skin. Tovpir is made of stone from head to toe. Not really a target for bullets.

    After all Tovpir is used to use all of his weapons at one and aimes with his tail at a gap in Adirs armor. He fokus more on it then on the claws which might miss anything.

    Harnel's move is largely successful, Kataki's own weapons being used against it. The weapons are restless in their assault however and as Harnel launches himself backwards the cliff the knives which were circling around him see their chance. They dart towards him trying to cut his wings open and possibly stabbing him through any weaknesses in his armor, such as his lack of a helmet.

    The spirit itself suddenly lifts itself off the ground and floats over the cliff Harnel just threw himself over. It wasn't going to give up just yet. This mortal was not going to escape and cause more war.

    With a few parries and relying on his armor, Harnel will be able to get out of the assault without getting skewered. However, a pair of daggers will pierce one of his wings, and he hits the ground roughly, rolling into a standing position before ducking behind the nearest tree for a hiding spot. Now just to wait for the giant metal thing to come for him.

    Harnel will wait for Kataki to land before slashing through the trunk of a tree with Conflict and kicking the mass of lumber towards it. Th Kami will find a rather large tree falling down towards it at this point. Keep in mind - if it doesn't land, Harnel will just wait for it to be close enough to use this maneuver.

    Well, it seems as though the carcinos is dead but just doesn't know it yet. It'll take a while; it's angry, trapped and knows that its only hope of survival is to kill everything it sees with its nearly 360 degree vision (the one blind spot on a crab's eye is a small strip of chitin leading up the side closest to the other eye; if it hadn't had one eye blown off, it would be full 360 vision- crab eyes are cool). But the wounds in its legs and the captain slowly hacking his way through its rear armour has doomed the poor beast, and it will die. It's just continuing the same tactics for another few hours or so.

    The spirit does in fact not land on the ground again, instead it sends more weapons through the forest, slowly cutting the foliage around Harnel to shreds as it searches for him. Sadly his armor isn't very well camouflaged in the forest around him and his sheer size probably don't help him either.

    Therefore he won't be able to stay hidden too long as Katagi seem to prefer staying a fair distance away, letting it's countless weapons do all the work for the spirit.

    Therefore Harnel probably need to think of another strategy to attack the spirit.

    Harnel isn't that large >.>

    Anyways, as the weapons approach him, Harnel lets out a searing blast of fire - the effect this should have is to make any wooden components of the weapons coming after him fall apart. This means the glue on spears and arrows and the like should collapse from being seared, and a weapon that's fallen apart isn't a weapon anymore - just junk in need of repair. This should also have the effect of potentially burning off the handles of some of the other weapons such as axes, maces, and potentially even some swords.

    Harnel is on the defensive now, however, and will move conflict and the stolen swords to deflect and parry the incoming blows that aren't consumed by his fire.

    If it doesn't realize it, Braun and his crew will be happy show it. Crewmen are bruised and broken but it's inevitable. The crab will be cut and speared at until it stops moving and then some.

    Looks like somebody's getting king-sized crab sticks, then, as the crab is slowly killed.

    Fun fact: Whilst nobody is sure about whether or not arthropods, or invertebrates in general, feel pain as we know it, scientists have found structures that look exactly like human pain receptors in crabs.

    As Harnel starts to breath fire at the weapons they suddenly back away from him as he burned down a spear with his breath. Instead they start to circle around him, staying just out of reach as they start to tear down the forest around him. Eventually creating a circle of deforestation around Harnel's location.

    More weapons start to descend from the great spirit which now slowly start to descend towards Harnel's current location as the weapons around the half-dragon creates a barrier of weapons.

    Harnel just grins; this spirit is using the same maneuver again. Interesting.

    before the weapons an finish surrounding him, Harnel will use Conflict to cut down a surprisingly thick tree, making sure it falls away from him, and his other hand will toss the sword it's carrying towards Kataki. Harnel will then begin running up the tree even as it falls

    The purpose of this is simple; a distraction, to test how well Ktaki can focus on multiple things.

    ...Or at least that was what it looked like from a certain perspective. The noonday sun beat down exactly like a photonic hammer as the whispering heat shook the air, reflecting the sky in places to taunt the thirsty and the lost. A particularly feral wolf lay on it's side in a patch of sun, red fur dirtied by the dust and sand. It was odd for a wolf to be out alone without specific reasons. Usually these sorts were the elderly who had been forced out as a weak link by the pack or the young and bold sort looking for new territory. Though often not as adept at bringing down large game due to a lack of a pack, such wolves were known to be notably stronger and more aggressive in comparison to their more social kin.

    This would normally be an animal to give a wide berth if not for the fact that it was dead. Or at least not breathing. Very occasionally, though, an ear would twitch or a paw would lightly scrape at the ground. It wouldn't take a brilliant mind to guess that there was an undead lying there but it would be rather odd for any undead to be sleeping. Unless it was just a reanimated animal that was simply operating on instinct, then there would probably be reason enough to be cautious at the very least. Or attack head on, if one thought that was a good idea.

    The spirit promptly ignores the sword coming for it which it recognizes as it's own and instead focuses it's attention towards Harnel again. The weapons darting towards him again as he runs up the tree, going for his legs and back this time. Especially the holes he have at his back for the wings.

    Some of these weapons have actually been enchanted by their previous owners so they are actually magically sharp.

    The spirit itself flies after him, apparently going for an direct confrontation this time. The sword he threw isn't going to have any effect at all on the weapon kami and will just become a part of it's body once it touch it.

    Hmm. It knows how to focus and isn't afraid of getting hit with the weapons from its body. Interesting.

    Harnel, rather than running the full way up the falling tree as it gets caught in the branches of those around it instead leaps to another tree, the change in direction being sudden enough that it should throw off the the weapons chasing after him.

    But now that Kataki is closer, the half-dragon decides it's time to risk an attack. The Half-Dragon will take a flying leap out of the canopy toward Kataki, a powerful slash coming forward to the extremely pointy spirit. as the blade comes close enough to strike, Harnel will make a flap with his tattered wings, which will move him back and prevent him from colliding with Kataki. This will also make the wound inflicted shallower if it works, but Harnel needs to know if he can do a definitive amount of damage before committing to an attack.

    Harnel himself will land once more on the forest floor with a grunt, his feet starting to hurt from the multiple impacts.

    Panic and fear fill the stag's heart. Despite the promise of resurrection, he's absolutely terrified. Tovpir's weighing down on him, and there doesn't seem to be a way out.

    One final question before our little conclusion - does Tovpir have a mouth? If he does, Adir will go for it, jamming his gun inside and firing wildly. Otherwise, the stag is likely getting stung (or stabbed, as the case may be) in his neck.

    [On A Cliff]

    As Harnel attempts to slash through the spirit it's body shifts and two tower shields attempt to block the attack. Apparently it seems much more concerned about this slash then the thrown sword from earlier.

    In response the horde of weapons that were chasing Harnel earlier quickly come around, dividing themselves over a larger area as they try to surround the half-dragon, blocking every possible way except the one leading directly to Katagi.

    Wherever he chooses to go a few weapons will probably be there to try to stab him.

    Blocked with shields. Interesting.

    Kataki's shields are probably not doing so well - Conflict has a similar property to adamantine in that it can cleave through most materials with relative ease. It's why Harnel was capable of cutting through a thick tree without too much hassle. due to the weakness of the blow and the fact that it was actually meant for damage, the shields likely weren't destroyed, but rather had a large gash put into them.

    Harnel, given no other option, will surge forward towards Kataki, but even as he moves, his tail, still holding a sword, will move to intercept whatever weapons come after him - he can hear the air movements they make, so even though the majority of his focus is on Kataki, he's still making sure not to get literally stabbed in the back.

    Kataki, on the other hand, will have to deal with both of Harnel's hands making a large overhead swing. This is a feint - when Harnel gets close enough, he'll pull the sword back, before going for a strong thrust.

    No, Alpha's purpose is distraction and his blue ice longsword shall serve just as well for that. Mustering his strength and forcing air into his battered lungs, the supersoldier throws himself into a headlong rush past the demon, seeking to dodge around the Fyarl and flank it with his brother, throwing in a quick strike at it's side as he goes.
    The Fyarl is still struggling to find a way to stand up, though it's becoming increasingly difficult to, what with all the blades attempting to stab it. The strike at the side will hit it, leaving a small gash on the side. Besides the sudden stinging pain it will likely have no long-term effect, however.

    Several cracks will form in the armor, though none are deep enough to actually draw blood. At this point, the Fyarl is getting annoyed at the jabs and slashes, though, so it'll attempt to roll over and quickly stagger into an upright position.

    "The lighter! We need it!" He shouts to Finbar, hoping the man will have the common sense to toss it over.
    Finbar looks at him for a second. He's currently clicking away with the lighter, trying to keep calm. He does not like the thought of giving it up at all. But he's not going to risk everyone's life just to keep his own sense of calmness. He tosses it at First, though he begins to look extremely overwhelmed by the situation shortly thereafter.

    Standing behind Wenomir is the familiar sight of one TK. She grins down at him, lifting her hand off his shoulder and holding it out for him to stand. Her other hand holds a rather large rifle, which she holds resting against her shoulder. C'mon, get up, she urges him. You aren't allowed to die here.

    Unfortunatly, Mateo's already tried that trick. It worked surprisingly well, but this time the siren knows what he'll do. She swims up to him, emerging from the murky gloom of the water. Her scales, a pale green on dry land, are gloriously vibrant in the water. Coating her in every colour imaginable, she is less like a physical creature and more like a floating rainbow as she swims a slow circle around Mateo. The siren comes to a stop in front of him, reaching out to touch his face with her finger tips. She traces them down his cheek, smiling hungrily.

    When she removes her fingers, the pondweeds that bind Mateo begin to constrict. They pull tighter and tighter around his ribs, his arms, his legs, his head and neck. If the vampire cannot find some way to escape, he will slowly but surely be crushed to death.

    It's Fade's voice with the echo again.

    I wouldn't say his claws are piercing. They are more like a big hammer. After all he will try to get Adir wherever he can with his claws. The shot itself hit's, but Adir may soon notice that the bullet only broke the stone skin. Tovpir is made of stone from head to toe. Not really a target for bullets.

    After all Tovpir is used to use all of his weapons at one and aimes with his tail at a gap in Adirs armor. He fokus more on it then on the claws which might miss anything.
    The flowers begin to reform but only show the top half of Fenghar and Aladar's body. They're still hovering high up in the air, looking to Fade.
    Aladar looks to Fenghar but Fenghar keeps his eyes on Fade, Aladar turns to Fade.
    "Hmmm...how about an alliance?" Fade asks slightly interested in what Fade's response is.

    One final question before our little conclusion - does Tovpir have a mouth? If he does, Adir will go for it, jamming his gun inside and firing wildly. Otherwise, the stag is likely getting stung (or stabbed, as the case may be) in his neck.

    Mountain Path


    This is a very simular picture of him. But Tovpir isn't dump. If adir aims at his mout he will close it. After all the weapon broke his lower skin and it's not good eating these.

    After all Tovpirs gem like eyes stare at Adir while the tail still tries to impale the ... eh feary? With time I forgot what race he is... sorry.

    [Edge of Hunting grounds]

    Fade looks atop to them from his personal plane they don't see more then a shadow on the bottom, but this shadow also is Fade's window to the reality.

    "Alliance? Explain yourself."

    Still remember Fade ALLWAYS sounds emotionless. Well after all he leaks emotions.

    Harnel will find that the weapons are coming from every direction now, even the ones beyond his tail's reach. Unless he manages do parry several knives and swords at once coming from every direction at least some of them will hit him.

    Meanwhile Katagi itself uses an different tactic as Harnel approaches him. Seeing his light slash nearly going through it's shields it tries a new tactic. It thrusts out several spears from it's body against Harnel like an Phalanx formation, trying to make the half-dragon impale himself on them as he attacks the spirit.

    Well, this time Harnel is certainly committed. He'll have to see this attack the whole way through, if for no other reason than the weapons pressing in on him.

    Many of the floating weapons will strike Harnel's armor in laces. Many others will be deflected by his scales as they hit him awkwardly, but a few will manage to pierce him. As mentioned before, his wing-shoulders are relatively vulerable points, but they're knots of bone and muscle, and so the weapons there will not be able to go very deep, and don't hinder Harnel's attack even if they cause him pain. A few others will be able to strike into his arms and legs at relatively unprotected points, such as his bicep, but he pushes through the pair of those for now; he's a trained warrior, and can take a little thing like stabbed arms for at least as long as it takes to administer a healing potion.

    As for the phalanx position that Kataki falls into, Harnel simply doesn't care. This is a position meant more for fighting armies than it is for fighting individuals. If the spears are spaced out, Harnel merely charge on through the gaps, likely skewering a wing on one of the spears. If Kataki points all the spearheads towards Harnel, that allows for a perfect sweep from the half-dragon to cut off the heads of all the spears quickly so that he may press forward.

    Either way, Harnel is still very much coming for Kataki, and Conflict is very, very likely to hit from this close up.
