Just a note, shouldn't Kennyth have been introduced as 'Ser' Kennyth?

Not that most people probably would notice.

Well, I did say 'everyone else' - though I can't imagine a reason Jael would be invited to this meeting. Maybe Aric insisted? In any case, can someone just assume Aric asks what you want him to do and post it?

I wasn't under the impression Kennyth was knighted? Not important.

I will do so, begging however the grace of an assumption that Aric is not in fact averse to cloaky, daggery, bloody assignments and does not take affront. Otherwise he would have answered negative I think to Daegon's question previously.

A quick note while we're at this junction - Aric Waters has been away from Westeros for a long time, and isn't known to the Seven Kingdoms at large. That he and Owyn look alike is unmistakable, but his relation isn't known.

Plus, everyone knows Bastards are always trying to take their Lord brothers' property.

I'll wait on Norjen to expound a bit from his knowledge check, which no doubt would vastly supercede anything Daegon could come up with.

I had assumed Jael wasn't present as well I was referring to the fact that if he were in any conversation he would simply follow Aric's lead unless directly addressed.

How do we want to proceed from here? The minute Norjen finds out about the ruling, all the cloak and dagger stuff will be scrapped. At that point he'll want to make for King's Landing.

Harald has a rendevous with Aric planned... might not be a bad way to test drive the combat system.

Seemed a good way for both Harald and I to test things out as it'll give us a chance to look at it with wooden/padded blades rather than on the end of someone else's sword.

Merbak, please adjust your post. There definitely is a practice version of the Water Dancer's sword on the racks - it is one of the many forms Owyn has arranged to have him taught. Indeed, there'd be a surprisingly diverse amount of weapons for a Seven Kingdoms noble's family.

Awesome! I had assumed as it was supposed to be double priced to buy due to exotic-ness that it would not be on the rack to practice with. <goes to happily adjust post>

Alright - I don't anticipate Daegon or Norjen will have much to do with the match between Harald and Aric, so we'll move you two along with your scheming.

First up - we'll do Month 1's House Fortunes Roll, with one of you two doing it - determined by a quick roll. Daegon - 70 Norjen - 51 . Whichever of you wins that priveledge , make the House Fortunes Roll and allocate it in the House Statistics thread, the name of which I can't precisely recall at the moment.

The other of you... I'll work something out. Start a post/during the fight thread while the fight's still going on, probably.

The die roller apparently changed the other quickness roll to match the attack roll I made, for some reason. Agility/Quickness will be re-rolled and posted in Appropriate Rolls Thread.

Hmm.. I should have addressed this early, but being as this exhibition is meant to closely duplicate a real combat, is it safe to assume that Harald is in harness? No big deal if he isn't.

yes, it's safe to assume. Y'all are protected as much as you want to be.

Aric it totally just wearing courtier clothes. Why have a fight if you can't also be stylish? :-P

If my understanding of the system is correct, the attack roll of 21 vs Harald's Defense of 8 (I assume having armor and shield) is 3 degrees of success, so damage is 5 (Aric's full agility) x 3 (degrees) = 15 - 10 (Harald's AR) = 5 points of damage. He would now have the options: losing 5 health, or taking an inury (and -1 to all rolls) to negate 5 damage. He could also take a wound (and -1D to all rolls) to negate all of the damage, but that would be silly as he would negate all of the damage with the injury instead.

Is this all (or mostly) correct?

Given the choice, I'll take the 5 damage, given Harald's 15 health.

Luckily, as this is a training match, with training weapons, that's just just a single 'Youch'! Maybe a loud bellow.

Also - you REALLY better not get caught by Harald's greatsword, Merbak... no armor vs. a practice GREATSWORD? you might have a bruise the size of Ancient Valyria upside your head.

He's a Bravosi, if he gets hit, he's doing something wrong!

The sad thing is that Aric is really the most effective fighter of the PCS against Harald - mainly because he is so damn hard to hit. Just about anyone else, Harald has a very good shot at being able to power through whatever armor they happen to be wearing.

Ouch: 4 degrees of success? I think Harald might have to take a knee here (and an injury).

Yeah... I wanted to keep Aric out of the Lancers until/unless he receives training specifically for it. So, 1D in Handle Animal = no riding around in combat. A charging person on horseback would be like fighting Harald - the bonus for height and penalty for charge offset, but if Aric gets hit, he takes a wound or dies. A guy just riding up on horseback and bopping him on the head would murder Aric (as long as they were a skilled knight with 4D or 5D fighting to begin with), though, b/c they'd have the bonus for height.

I've been delayed of late due to preparations for a looming short notice deployment. Hopefully I will be able to resume posting soon.
