Maximillian waits for Lady Keket (and others?)

Post by Rob (Cast) on Tue Sep 20, 2016 4:11 pm

MAXIMILLIAN:
The one who calls himself Maximillian crests over the hill not so distant and sees the smokestack of the Watering Hole puffing smoke. I hope they have fixed the doors... sheepskin only warms one so much. He thinks to himself. In short time he has made his way into the settlement and slips in the backdoor as usual (repaired or not). Greeting anyone present with usual gusto, he has a seat and waits patiently for the one Lady Keket or someone who may know of her whereabouts; he has not forgotten his promise to teach her more swordplay! Perhaps the one clad in green, Herr, will also make use of this opportunity. Maximillian orders some hot water with honey and meditates.

Herr storms into the building with one fist clenched and anger plastered upon his face. He glances quickly at Maximillian and searches the room for a drink; He spies the yellow ale, he seizes a tankard, slams it by the ale, potentially startling anyone nearby, pours and chugs his drink. Herr stares at the entrance opposite the way he entered, breathing heavy, his face employs a fowl look as he mouths the word "Pathetic". He looks to Maximillian, his breathing slows, his anger fades and he pours more ale. Herr sits near Maximillian but stays quiet, believing other people will be here for some form of training. that's what he's here for, right? Herr thinks.

MAXIMILLIAN:
'Ah, Herr, yes? How goes the daggerplay, my friend? Still training that arm of yours?' Maximillian sips his drink in between questions, then pauses, realizing Herr seems distraught. 'Is everything alright?'

Prior to Lady Keket's entrance

Herr polotely smiles at Maximillian.
"There's currently a lot on my plate.. Metaphorically, and i just want d to inform you that i won't be learning anything new with dagger."
Herr hesitates. "I've got larger goals to achieve but thank you for being willing to teach me."
Herr nods to Maximillian as he rises from his seat. Lady keket enters, Herr glances at her and leaves when she begins to speak.

MAXMILLIAN:
Waving a signal of farewell as Herr departs, Maximillian responds: 'Think nothing of it, my friend.'
Turning to the Lady Keket, he asserts himself upright. 'Ah! My dear Lady Keket! So you are here to learn more of the sword.' He puts his drink aside.
'Now then! What in particular were you keen on learning? You had mentioned understanding how to use short weapons more proficiently; are you also interested in learning any other arms? Certainly you have been expressing great fervor and interest in this.' Maximillian cannot contain his elation at so many of the peoples of Holdfast electing to grow strong. He is glowing.

-lady keket smiled watching Maxmillian as she seen how he seems to change himself talking her in away as shed be looking at him as he spoke to her as she came abit closer for an easy talk for the time binning as she wanted to learn how to fight better for the well beaning of all-

" Maxmillian i am here to learn more of the sword mostly my short sword i feel i should learn how to use it better to strike better that one time i killed the sheep has stoke me with and helping defend myself and friends, as i am also interested in needed in learning another one i believe its a dagger? or a smaller weapon of the the kinda"

Maximillian:
'Well, then, how about we start with training that sword arm of yours. The basics are always a good place to warm up anyway. Shall we?' He motions to the (door) and leads the way outside to the field where they will have sufficient room.
Maximillian unravels his poncho and tucks his sheepskin into his belt for better freedom of movement. He stands off to the side by the inn porch and beckons to Keket. 'Now, Miss, if you would, please demonstrate your form to me. I wish to see what your habits and thresholds might be so that I know best how to teach. Show me exactly how you might handle that sword against possible multiple assailants.'
Maximillian stands and observes.

-shed would nod to him-

"yes the basics are always good place to start and warm up at you lead and i shell follow you"

-shed then would follow him to the door as once out side she would take off her cloak's and belt and bags to make for easier moment and to show him also as shes places this down near the side by the steps as shes would now take her sword and show him how shed would stand in combat as shed would be looking at him now The stance she would take is turning her body sideways slightly so her primary foot takes place in front of the left leg and is two feet back making for better balance. Her right arm extended ready. to strike with the sword as her left hang by her side as if ready in it self for anything that was need to be done or held if need be-

Maximillian:
He observes her assumed stance and nods approvingly. 'Good, good, now hold that. I will lead you in some exercises alongside.'
Drawing his sidearm, Maximillian situates himself alongside Keket and assumes a stance similar to hers. 'Now then, follow along with me, mirroring my movements. I will correct you as needed.'
He slowly draws arcs in front of him, one stroke down as he steps forward with his rear foot, and another stroke upwards at an angle as he steps again and his lead foot falls ahead. He falls back into position after the combo and repeats, allowing time for Keket to mirror his movements. 'We are embracing control and developing an understanding of our swordarm and their motions. Follow the tip of your blade but feel the weight of its edge true to bring proper power down and up as you stroke. We want flowing motions here.'

- shed would nod as he said this as shed would hold her stance as she would then start to mirror his movements as she start she would have some hard time doing it at times the lead foot went first before her other foot shed swig down but then remember with a nod that this was to be done slow and to form arcs after noticing her error she try to do it again shed have a faint smile as shes swing arching down in fort of herself steeping with one foot then doing the same with the other-

"its not as is as it seems so far"

Maximillian:
Maximillian smiles reassuringly. 'You are performing fine, Miss Keket. Now stay focused.'
They continue in their form practices and Maximillian follows them with other movements, which he also details to Keket. The sun is becoming lower in the sky, which Maximillian notes, and he halts their practice. 'If you are satisfied with your progress, we could hold our training for now, Miss Keket.' He prompts. 'Do you feel you have an adequate grasp on these ideas of control? Do your movements feel like brush strokes? You seem to be coming along nicely, but it is up to you.'

Maximillian:
'Well met, my dear! We'll leave that for the time being. You are certainly "brushing up" on your skills.' He laughs unashamedly at his own joke. 'Well, I'm off to retire at my campsite for now. Please feel free to call on me have you any other need for further training.'
Maximillian gives a friendly bow, and gathering his belongings, heads leisurely down the path to the edge of the settlement.
(OOG: sorry for the slow reply, didn't realize you had responded ^^')

Maximillian:
The day is surprisingly bright and uncloudy today, Maximillian ponders to himself. As the sun rises he thinks on what the day holds and decides that perhaps he ought to return to Holdfast. The folk there are good and eager and there is much to do yet. He is feeling more and more a part of that community and enjoys it.
Soon enough he has made the short journey from his hideaway and rounds the bend up to the settlement. Nodding and waving to anyone he sees, he happens upon the Lady Keket once again, who has an apprehensive look on her face.
'Hello, Miss Keket! Have you been training today? You seem brimming with positivity, I must say.'

Maximillian:
'Well, what in particular do you believe you are having trouble grasping? Form may always be polished, but we must home in on the root causes of any bad habits. Does anything come to mind?'
Maximillian begins form practice and beckons Keket to follow suit.

Maximillian:
'Don't think too much about it right now. Try instead to focus on a feeling that gives you balance and roots you. Space your feet as so, but then practice your sword strokes and allow your feet to follow.'
Maximillian demonstrates and then leads Keket in the motion.
'We'll iron out those errant motions bit by bit. Now, if you'll notice your lead foot is not angled with your rear...'

Maximillian teaches Keket throughout the day as they sword dance into the red evening. The glory of training! Blood, sweat, tears! Well, a little sweat. A little bit.
