Arundas looked around the forest, the wind ruffling his long black hair, the harmonius trees...they didn't know of the blood they would soon witness.

Arundus quickly spun around and slashed his long sword in the air.

"Come out! Face me, and don't hold back!"

Iorlas

Iorlas moved with agility and stealth only an assassin of his ability would be capable of he quickly and lightfootedly dashed from the forest and crouched behind Arundus.He then slowly stood up and drew his prefered weapons "Deathwish" his rapier,and "Shadowheart" his enchanted dagger.Iorlas's red hair flowed forward and he pushed it back behind his elven ears.He had been looking for a fight and Arundus seemd like a decent challenge.he broke the silence... "Im right behind you.."

Arundus turned around to see Iorlas standing behind him, and then pointed his longsword at Iorlas' head.

"Stand and Deliver!"

Arundus circled around Iorlas as fast as he could, he then jumped against a tree and levered off to slash at Iorlas' chest.

Iorlas
01/20/2005 8:26 PM

Iorlas playfully parried his slash and countered with his dagger cutting Arundus's garment right across the sleeve.Iorlas used the momentum to his advantage and thrust his rapier downward stabbing downwards towards Arundus's open feet. "You left me an opening..Fool!"

Arundus tried to jump away in time but was still cut across the ankle,

"That really pisses me off..."

Arundus stabbed his sword in the ground and kicked towards Iorlas' chest.

Iorlas simply side stepped his kick and swept Arundus's other leg that he was keeping balance with out from under him elegantly sending Arundus on his back.Iorlas held "Deathwish" to his throat and then playfully let him up again assuming a graceful fencing position. "Surprised?" He smirked softly and arrogantly swayed back in forth in a fencing rythm. "Its not common for me to meet a human in battle but today is special.."

Nightmarish

Arundus pulled his longsword back out of the ground, then he quickly pulled a small throwing dagger from his belt and threw it at a tree, while Iorlas was distracted Arundus slashed vertically at Iorlas' right shoulder.

Iorlas
01/20/2005 8:46 PM

Iorlas barely blocked the heavy longsword with his rapier.He wasnt stronger than the human but who needs strength when you can strike quickly and undetected.Iorlas was shocked by the strength of his opponent and remained standing in a defensive position.It is quite simple really...Ill kill you now and save you the embarassment of dying a pathetic death at the end of your mortality human.." He parried another sloppy but strong slash and cut Arundus down his arm and across his face.

Nightmarish
01/20/2005 8:51 PM

Arundus pulled away slightly, avoiding the full effect of the strike, but still got a minor cut across his arm, he then quickly dropped to his knees and slashed acroos Iorlas' legs.

Iorlas
01/20/2005 8:56 PM

Iorlas anticipated such a move and gracfully jumped as the sword swished underneath him, as he landed he thrust his dagger down at Arundus's chest with assassin like speed.He then thrust his rapier at his now open leg.

Nightmarish
01/20/2005 9:00 PM

Arundus pulled up quickly with his sword to block the blow to his chest, and took a minor cut to his already damaged ankle. Arundus ran 2 meters from Iorlas, threw two daggers to the right and left of him, and with his sword in stab position, charged at his chest at full speed.

Iorlas
01/20/2005 9:32 PM

Iorlas laughed arrogantly to himself as he knocked both daggers to the ground he then thrust foward with his rapier and cut Arundus twice once in the chest and again in the back as he made his way behind him. "You are going to have to do better than that.." Iorlas went on the offensive and began to flurry Arundus with precision strikes and masterful parries.

Nightmarish
01/20/2005 9:44 PM

"You'll pay for that!"

Arundus growls with pain and his anger fuels him. Arundus blocks Iorlas' parry and begins to spar with him, pushing him back a little with each hit, seeing a break in Iorlas' defense Arundus knocks his rapier out of his hand and slashes towards Iorlas' chest.

Iorlas
01/20/2005 10:14 PM

Iorlas blocks with his dagger and rolls on the ground towards deathwish and picked it up off the ground."Maybe i shouldnt go so easy on you.." Iorlas blocked another anger guided slash from Arundus and mocked him by side stepping to the side of him and striking him in the small of his back with the blunt side of his rapier."Surely this is not your best.." He laughed arrogantly and countered another rage filled swing of Arundus's longsword with deathwish then he slammed his foot against his chest knocking Arundus down for a second time.

(OOC:You block my longsword with a Dagger?? right...)

Arundus slowly stands back up and decides that furious misguided slashes weren't the right answer. Arundus then blocks a slash from Iorlas' rapier and rolls on the ground to Iorlas' back and slashes vertically.

OOC: Ok Iorlas, I understand that you have rped for 4 years and you may not be used to this kind of rping. I have done this kind of rping at a different site so I know what I am talking about. Just hear me out okay? You need to stop what you are doing. What I am talking about is that you always seem to dodge or block Nightmarish attacks.

You also attack him without giving him an option to really dodge. You are taking control of his character and that is not allowed. What you are doing in all reality is called power gaming. Power gaming is a big "no-no" when it comes to battling like this. So far Nightmarish has done his best to work with what you are doing. He is rping in the best way possible for this sort of thing. He lets you get a chance to make a move. Whether or not that is you blocking/dodging or you getting hit by the attack. You do the very opposite and force him into a corner of just barely being able to dodge or getting hit by the attack.

He has allowed it and if it was me I would have told you to knock it off by now or the fight would be over. Maybe it’s just me, but that’s what I would do. Now I would like for you to try and role play like he does, by giving him chances to actually dodge and get ready for the next attack. Now I understand that this could mean he could just keep dodging like you have but, to be really fair you both have to take hits and in the end it will be up to you two to decide who wins. If you can both do this then I think you could advance your role playing abilities quickly. That is it I guess for me, I'll be keeping my eye on this thread.

This happens to be a battle rp battle usually means no holds barred rping,but i respect your position and appriciate your insight but what i do not appriciate is the way you approached me by posting it in this thread as if to embarass me like im some newbie to all this.You could have said all of that to me in a private message instead of trying to make me look like some retard that cant rp.It was a simple misunderstanding because all the other "battle" rping ive done was hardcore freestyling and if you would notice my other posts that are not in a battle are very thoughtful,and im not some newbie to all this its just the battling ive been doing has been different then this..

Well I am sorry but, from most places that I have gone to that was more or less the rule: Give the other person an actual chance to make a move. And I understood that maybe from the places that you came from people have done hardcore freestyling. I also didn't think of using the private message my bad. I have noticed that your other posts that are not in battles are well written but, I wasn't talking about those ones now was I.

I just thought that maybe Nightmarish has battled in battles like I have. I could be wrong and he could have role played in battles like you have. Now that was just me thinking of the possibilities. Next time if I plan on telling you my opinion I'll use the private message thing. Sorry if I hurt your "pride" by posting a suggestion. Most people would regularly just say "Thanks, but this is how I do it and I'll change it if need be," and continue on. So continue as you would, I'll abdicate now.

OOC Im sorry if i came off as invinceble i wasnt trying to do that nightmarish things will get better like my post here.

Iorlas was caught off guard and turned around just in time but took the brunt of the damage of Arundus's sword on his left arm.Iorlas looked down at his arm to see an enormous gash across the width of his gauntlet.There was no pain but reguardless Arundus had scored a good hit. "Much better..I was begining to think you didnt have it in you..Iorlas tightned the guantlet on his arm and swtiched to an offensive counter sword style.Blood trickled down onto the ground forming pools off blood on the leaves before Iorlas. "At last a worthy opponent..."

(OOC: Thats ok Iorlas, just try not to put your character in 'godmode' so much, and Eagle I don't want you to think that because I didn't say anything I power game like that too,because I don't, I would have said something sooner or later :) )

"You are a worthy opponent yourself..."

Arundus licked his blade clean of blood and made a quick swipe at Iorlas' legs.

OOC-I dont understand why you are even talking about it seeing as me and nightmarish have already established an agreement,why is this even a discussion?

Iorlas darts forward and slashes downward at Arundus's exposed face.

Nightmarish
01/24/2005 2:44 PM

Arundus pulls away, but not fast enough. He takes a good lick across the face from the blow, revealing a large cut across the face.

"Taste my steel, cur!"

Arundas pushes Iorlas away and spins around in a whirlwind, attempting to slash Iorlas across the chest.
