Awaiting Taka

Post by Degren Brightforge on Mon Feb 19, 2018 12:58 pm

Degren stands in camp, a large array of weapons sitting before him on weapon racks. A number of daggers, swords, bludgeoning weapons, pole-arms, and even a few exotic weapons clutter the racks; as he waits, Degren checks their weight, balance, and ensures their false edges.

Taka makes her way across the field towards the Knight's Camp. As she approaches, she sees the array of weapons Degren has set out.

Noticing Taka, Degren smiles, "It is. Weapon mastery is no small feat to learn-- there're enough different kinds of weapons out there that ye could spend the rest of yer life training with each and every one, and never made any headway. Luckily, though, most killin' weapons generally work the same-- they cut, stab, or bludgeon your enemy until they're dead. And, ye' can group them into generalized categories. Blunt n' cleaving weapons, these'll smash er' chop yer enemies. They include warhammers, picks, maces, axes, and flails. These utilize heavy heads that you swing with brute force.

Then, you've got yer polearm weapons. These are yer halberds, pikes, spears, bardiches and what not. They all have long handles with sharp or pointed heads that ye stab and slash at your enemies with.

Finally, you've got her sword-like weapons. These are yer longswords, bastard swords, short swords, and-- I'd say--- whatever it is you use there," he indicates the Fighting Star slung across Taka's shoulder, " Same deal, in general. You've got a handle and a couple blades that're used fer stabbing, slashing, and, most importantly, parrying and trapping enemy weapons. Learn to master at least two weapons from each of these categories, a single handed grip and a two handed grip, and you can-- with minimal practice-- learn any other weapon they share a category with." He grabs a blunted two handed sword from the rack and tosses it to Taka, "If yer ready to go, we'll start with the two handed sword."

Taka listens intently.
"Right; okay."
Taka clambers to catch the sword and succeeds. She gives it a look-over before laying her shuriken against a tree. She steps back towards Degren and while putting both hands on the sword she attempts a stance that she's seen other sword-wielders do.

*Degren and Taka train into the next three days, carefully working through different weapons until she's managed to grasp the basics of each one. This is me signing off on Taka's Weapon Master 1 training*

"You've done well, Taka. Take some time, do some practice with your favorite weapons, and before long you'll be swinging anything you can get your hands on."

"Thank you, Degren. When would you like to start training to knock people out?"

"Yes, ma'am!" Degren happily responds, "Though, I ask you to try and avoid doing any serious damage to me while training." He smiles, and prepares to train.

"Right, well yes. One of the main reasons you would choose to knock someone out over any other means is because it does no serious harm. It's really like putting them to sleep, except that it's harder to wake them up when they're out; a sleeping person will wake up if someone hurts them, but not someone who's been knocked out. Both can be woken up if you shake them hard enough though."
She pauses.
"So as for how you do it, well you could use brute force and just smack them in the back of the head really hard -- and that does work -- but I prefer to use a little more precision than that. What you really want to do is hit right here." She turns around and points to a spot towards the base of her skull ((OOG: IG hit between the shoulder blades because no headshots))
She turns back around. "And if you know how to throw a good punch, that's how I usually do it, but if not you should probably find something hard to hit them with like a rock, or the pommel of your sword."
She pauses again, thinking.
"Yeah, that's about all the basics. Make sense so far?"

Nodding, Degren responds, "It makes sense. I understand the basic concept of it... I've had it done to me before-- I just needed some further insight on how to do it myself; assuming, that is, that I don't want to do any serious damage to whoever it is I'm knocking out."

"Hmm..."

Taka stops for a moment to think about how best to show Degren how not to do harm.

"I have an idea."
She sits down with her back turned to Degren.
"You try to knock me out right now. If I can see that you're going to hurt me I'll dodge it, if I don't foresee that I'll let you knock me out."

She glances back at him.
"Try not to take too long getting the hang of this though or I'll run out of psychic energy."

"Very well, lemme give it a shot," Degren balls his fist up, winds, and lets loose the lightest tap one could imagine; the blow lands against Taka's back, but barely buffs her cloths, let alone knocks her out, "Sorry. Let me try again," this time, his second strike is much harder, targetting the back on her neck with the palm of his hand.

((Sudden Clarity))
Taka ducks to the side.

"You need to aim a couple inches higher than that; you would have just hit my neck."

Seeing her near impossible reflexes, Degren nods and throws a strong punch towards the base of Taka's skull, throwing his whole body behind the blow.

((Sudden Clarity))
Taka hurls herself to the side.
"Okay, THAT would have hit hard. The strength you used before was fine. Try it with the aim from this time and the strength from before."

Degren nods and complies, throwing a strong, aimed blow at the back of Taka's head.

The blow connects and Taka slumps over onto the ground, unconscious.

((At this point I am signing off knockout, but you may wish to keep RPing to tie the thread off. You can also take this as a sign off for unarmed strike 1 if you're so inclined.))

Vadim stumbles out of the woods into the knight's camp, He squints hard, looking around, and spots Degren.

"Ah, Degren! Just the guy I was.."

He looks down and spots Taka lying on the ground, unconscious.

"..You, ah.."

"...Need a hand tying 'er up? I knows a few quiet spots up'n the woods ye could go to."
