I would only maim.


Important note:

Heimdall is heading off to retrieve a horn. Once this horn is sounded all fighting stops on the planet (no exception). This is impart due to two reasons:

1. It signales that each side should begin marching to Vigrid.

2. Weapons don't work, rather they cannot harm anyone on the planet (again no exception). Example: A lightsaber hits someone on the head and instead of cleaving the head the saber bounces off doing no damage. A balster bolt is absorb and so forth.
---------------------------------

And for those who are wondering why not get the horn first, that is because there is a certain time in which it has to be sounded. Doing it before then does nothing.

Those shields can absorb some physical force as well, incidentally. So even if you could hit someone, maiming is unlikely.

Those who aren't wearing shields are wearing some form of armor.

Also, can we assume no one can be harmed at all through any force, physical or other? Or is it just if you're using a weapon?

I believe Admiral is reffering to the horn of [insert name here.] which will signal the begging of the last battle, call the Asier to fight and do some other funky stuff Admiral probably doesn't want spoiled.

Yes, I do know what he is talking about, in fact it was me who suggested he post it in this thread.

BD, What is Hal doing and what effect does he expect it have on the ork/orc/etc? Magic interaction aside.

Otherwise I have no idea what to post.

edit: Also, I apologize for totally forgetting to have anyone attack Hal.

The horn is named: Gjallar

and Red: no one can be harmed regardless of the method used.

Red: Hal is using a really big, powerful and sharp sword in a downward hack, two handed. The sword has the power of the living force pulsing through the blade and he is using the force to power his swing.

Under normal circumstances this would be a death blow.

Against plasteel, death blow.

Against Agamarian Steel, a really big dent.

Against Mithril, less of a dent, but still enough that you'll want to be seeing an armourer after the battle.

I'll briefly explain Agamarian armour and weapons now.

In general the metal used in armour, fittings, horse bardings, etc is Agamarian Steel. This is actually an alloy which conbines several metals to create a very strong material that is also relativly light. Three of the components are steel, cortosis and a small amount of silver. The alloy is general dull grey, therfore ceremonial armour is silver plated.

As far as strength goes the Agamarian Steel is Second only to Dwarf Steel (Mithril). The major disadvantage versus Mithril though is the weight, Agamarian Steel is considerably heavier, though still much lighter than other metal armour; it's weight falls between that of plasteel and conventional high carbon steel.

Most melee weapons are made of a high quality version of Agamarian Steel, better able to hold an edge and much less likely to break. Both weapons and armour will deflect lightsabers but they will probably be ruined.

The swords used by the ruling houses are something different. Like normal weapons they are pattern welded but after the forging process is completed the structure of the metal is altered by a powerful force surge being sent through the blade. These weapons will never break, never need sharpening and can actually conduct the force, if the user is strong in the Living Force, that is. When two such blades meet there will be sparks.

The first instance of these weapons we see is in Cantina 7, they later make a re-appearece during the vampire episode.

These weapons are incredibly sharp and are capable of punching through mithril, on ocasion.

As to the other thing:

Admiral: thanks

Red: Figures

Okay, that pretty much answers my questions. (Especially since I have a good idea at how mithril armor should interact with stuff from my dimension.)

A couple notes on my most recent post, since I designed it with the clear objective in mind of incapacitating/injuring everyone. XD

Everybody's wounds can be healed by the Force or by the Futhark.

The magic stun affect on Ellela can't, but it will vanish after a few minutes, and the Force can be used to cut its effects in half, or get rid of it faster, as long as it's Ellela doing it. The Futhark can't be used to do this (because Ellela can't use the Futhark.)

The bullet that hit Cracern is of a kind referenced in C13; the bullet itself is less important than the payload it releases, which ignores tough unliving substances but rips up organic substances and disrupts electrical systems.

The sleep spell on Sir-vin should wear off pretty quickly, simply because of contact with the freezing snow and the fact that he's Force-sensitive and a sort-of Jedi. The spell can only *keep* him asleep for about half a minute.

Admiral: Since I didn't know if the Futhark shields around Svafa and Idona were one-way, I didn't specify whether the shields were forced against the two, the magic hit them. I chose to assume that the shields were moveable in relation to Svafa and Idona, since I had to make a choice one way or another, but if they are not, then the magic punctured the shields and hit them. (and I will edit to say so.) Either way, the same effect.

They will be severely bruised and possibly sustain concussions (up to you, and I'm sure Idun can fix concussions ) [edit: No concussions if it's impact, they weren't hit in the head.] but if the mithril works as impact armor they shouldn't be further injured.

Note this is NOT an ordinary magic effect, so it is extremely unlikely Idun would know this could happen (relating to our earlier discussions).

Any other questions, I will answer here.

HOLY ****ING ****, I SUBMITTED A HUGE POST AND IT GOT EATEN BECAUSE I INCLUDED TOO MANY SMILES. I AM HAVING A BAD DAY. X_X

Okay, BD:

In short, because I don't want to bloody type all this again:

1) Hal's attacker was the strongest of the enemies. Many times stronger than Hal. He disarmed him through main force. [I assume 'low guard' meant he was parrying. I would've asked, but you were gone, and Admiral would have killed me if I'd waited. XP] Sure it didn't have much style, but sometimes the simple way is the most efficient way to go.

2) Just so you know, any normal weapon would have been shattered, which is what the tank-guy was going for.

3) A small note on an earlier event, Hal's first attack would've caused problems if he had tried it on anyone else there. But he picked the Tank, encased in ridiculously thick armor. So, nope. [I DO carefully read description posts. ]


Deac, wondering if Gortick kept the sword that the ork stabbed him with. It's shiny, at the very least. Oh, and post, goddammit.


Admiral, see PMs.


Scar, post, goddammit.


***


I expected more people to have comments and/or complaints, because I got as close to borderline godmoding as I ever have. Or maybe people are still reading my post and haven't even quite caught up yet?

I should've had the attack all happen in one post, with the element of surprise eliminating everyone's chances to react. Although that would've been a bitch to write, it would've been less complicated. Anyone who wants to write a super-powered-bad-guys scene in five posts or less, take note.

Speaking of super-powered, note that the group's attackers are superior to the group in the same way that any of our characters from Cantina could kick the asses of any of our characters here. Everyone is still inexperienced or underpowered or both. [Or simply extra-flawed.] SO FAR. These villains would be about on equal footing with the Cantina characters.

With the exception of Admiral's characters (Gerd is even superior to her C13 version), which is why they survived pretty much unscathed.

Thoughts?

This bloody post better not get eaten this time.

Red: One word, bull.

I'm not angry but think about this.

Hal is holding a sword with both hands in a gaurd position, he's just holding it. The hilt is roughly at waist level and the blade is pointed foward about 30 degrees from straight up.

Now don't get me wrong, the Halbard is one bitch of a weapon but its best used against cavaly, its an axe-hook-spear. So if Tank man is just swing the weapon the best he could hope for is to knock Hal's weapon out of the way, which is no good as Hal would just drop his blade, disgage and stab the guy. Fair enough it wouldn't hurt tank man but he's look an idiot.

The only way I can see to disarm a swordsman with a Halbard is get the hook under the quillions and sort of leaver upwards, which probably wouldn't work unless you managed to slice the his fingers off.

Admiral may correct me but is seems like a cheaper shot the the one I pulled last wednesday during fencing when I just hit the guy's blade and then poked him in the chest.

Sorry Red. I find it kinda hard to follow that up. Gortick hasn't yet removed sword...but I may once I've read the thread. I always go to discussion threads first, you see.

Well, the idea was the if Hal tried to hold on to his sword his hands/wrists would have broken.

I agree with everything else. Really what I did was a cheat because you left till Wednesday. And it was an extremely cheap move. My thinking was that Hal would have parried rather than simply dropping his weapon, thinking "WTF is he doing?" since Hal does seem to like making his opponents look like idiots.

If you want, I can edit, and have Hal simply drop his weapon, because that takes care of keeping him occupied. He probably would've gotten shot with a spell like Sir-vin while picking up his weapon [tracer spells, which is how the second try hit Idun, and hit Sir-vin], but if you think that makes him look like less of a prat, I'll do that.

Deac: Ahhh, alright.

Halberd are generally most effective against calvary since they have a very long reach to them. THis poses a problem for a swordsman since they have to get under the halberd to be effective. The more skilled on is with a halberd the harder it is for a swordsmen to get under the weapon*.

Now disarming an opponet is usually not done simply by hitting weapons against each other (unless one party has a very lax grip). The disarmer has to pin his opponents weapon and generally wrench it from their grasp. (simple explanation btw, don't feel like going into details)

A little bit about Halberds/polearms. There are some design with a hook in them allowing for trapping of an oppenets weapon. Rather effective and deadly.

Rules on parrying with a sword:
1st rule: If you given a choice between doding and parrying you dodge. No need to hurt the weapon.

2nd: Parry with the flat side of the blade if absolutely required.

*Under the weapon: Based the head of the halberd where the blade is and to a range close enough to use a sword with any effect.

Red by dropping his weapon, BD means lowering the blade. Putting it back in the ready position is something that takes a second. I should also note that dropping the blade is usually done to as part of a fient in an attack. EX: Heimdall takes an slashing swing over his head aimed at a Sith head. He then drops the blade mid swing and attacks the legs.

BD: Since you said quillins I take it BD's blade has a compound/complex hilt and not just a simple cross guard?

Can't believe the MOD for the JKII RP forums is godmoding. For shame. Oh well, I guess I can now godmode without you stopping me cause then you'd be a hippopotamus hypocrite


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

Admiral: No, simple crossgaurd. Its just a straight bar with some engraving and the trademark wolf's heads.

As to what I meant, Hal lowers his blade, causing the Halbard to pass through the air, then, before the guy can get the weapon back across he steps foward and lunges, aiming roughly at the midsection.

Red: The Halbard is not really a great weapon for one guy on his own. You can't use it in a close packed situation and if you fail to engage your enemy's blade you have to be able to bring that six foot pole back across fast to block his repost.

As to breaking anyone's hands thats more rubbish, any swordsman knows that have to keep a firmt but relaxed grip. The blade is held firmly but your wrist has to be able to take the impact of a blow, if you lock your arm up you will break something, you'll aslo end up with very bad cramp

As always, if I am wrong I bow to Admiral's greater knowlegde of individual combat. I know how to use the men who know how to use the weapons.

The halberd is this guy's weapon of choice because he's strong enough to rip apart a close-packed situation with his 'six-foot pole', and he doesn't need to be blocking very many blows with that armor.

And, you don't get what I was trying to say about breaking wrists. The idea was that Hal's sword would've been hit with such force that there was no way he could've kept holding it. You can't "take the impact" of being hit by enough force to send a truck flying.

Of course, I didn't take into account that Hal could've just lowered his blade, as you also mentioned, which is why I edited.

BD: Remember that a body can only take so much before something gives (aka bones breaking).

More on Halberd fighting. Keep in mind that every part of a medieval weapon had a use in hurting your oppenent. Halberds, Polearms, spears are sometimes designed with a spike on the butt of the weapon. Allowing for the weapon to be ramed down on the foot of an opponet.

As in one on one combat the Halberd definetly stands on it's own. One can argue that a Halberd has the advantage over a sword especially in skilled hands.

Given the sparse facts on the fight I would say Red's character had a very good chance to defeat Hal.

I will also note that this isn't a very important occurance and really isn't worth getting to angry over.
-----------------------------------------------------------

*Side Note*

Once this scene with Tanara is over I plan on doing another time skip to the feast. This will be where the group can ask any questions about the coming battle.

Admiral: I thought we were just discussing this to pass the time.

As to the force of a truck hitting his hands, well okay. I can live with that. You didn't state that Tank Man's armour was stength inhancing.

On a general halbard point, I'd say that its one of those cases where it depends who's using it. That aside the weapon is undeniably effective, provided you have the space to use it.

I didn't?

*checks*

Quote:
5) Gray Armor Being: Basically a tank. Blasters, lightsaber useless. Slower than the others, though.
Hm, oops.

A few details, while we're on the subject, and because I can:

Tank Man [Trern] has to be super-strong already just to wear the armor. The armor itself is made of dense material of a sort normally worn in a thin sheet. Blades and Shadows both incorporate this material in their suits, but they don't use more than that standard thin sheet. You need extensive training just to use a full suit of THAT efficiently; it's very stiff. Trern's armor is made up of many, many layers of this material. Anyone without strength enhancements already wouldn't be able to move in it. So actually his strength is being lessened (but still far greater than a normal being) but on the other hand he's protected enough that he won't break his OWN hands hitting something at full strength - something like the truck I mentioned. Plus, obviously enemies are going to have a difficult time getting through all those layers.

JM: From my understanding Matt was soley on Enoy before the group found him, and the Aesir's camp on Midgard was the first time that Matt encountered Drago.

Under these facts how did Matt know Drago's name?

Uh...JM...I trust you PMed BD about this?

Otherwise he's gonna be pretty lost...like I am

Are we supposed to recognize Car'nessa? Lord Briscoe?

Also, Drago hasn't exactly been a public figure...

Again, I hope this was done with BD's approval

Is there a possibility of retreat for non Aesir? Suppose one of them got wounded and wanted out.

Have you ever sconsidered creating a compasionate character?

I take it the Asier are going to fight stupid (honorably)?

Deac: No, once a character is on the field they have to stay until the end of the battle. No Retreating.

BD: Compasionate character is Idun, and no it is not stupid for the Aesir to fight.

To BD and Admiral: Well wether or not it's stupid depends on your point of view....


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

JM: The Aesir are fighting in the hopes of reducing the number of Fenris Brood and Heloki. As well as having a chance at removing the Jotuns. This would make things easier for the group and is well worth it.

There are other reasons but that is the main one.

Remember there is also just one ship off the planet, and the Asgardried cannot hold all the Aesir.

The Aesir are doomed one way or another. This battle gives them the best chance to do the most damage.

Admiral, not to put too finer point on it but the best chance of doing the most damage would have been not to blow up the galaxy.

As to my last comment a better way of putting it would be, will they fight Saxon or Roman.

Wrong BD: Things would have been worse. Much worse if they didn't.


and they will be fighting in Schiltrons.

The reason why I choose Schiltrons vs PHalanxs, or other formations is that Schiltrons form an entirely circular defense. Where a phalanx tends to have their backs and a side exposed. (Not good when surrounded).

Schiltrons basically form a shield wall with weaker units in the center, stronger ones along the perimeter. Now those in a Schiltron need to be very disciplined and have had a lot of practice with the formation, especially when the formation moves For obvious reason.

And this is going to be the Key to why the Aesir are not dead in 20 minutes. At the center of each Schiltron will be a healer like Idun.

As an Aesir becomes wounded the formation will essentially walks over the soldier until the wounded man is at the center with the healer. Once the soldier has been treated they take up a place in the last ring.

BD. As you see this formation creates the shield wall Drago had initially suggested also allows for the rotation of troops. Those who had been fighting the most can drop to the ground and the formation walks over putting the tired soldier at the center fresh ones in the front.

I will also point out that ranged attacks can quickly destroy schiltrons. And people wonder why I outlawed such attacks early on.

and you may wonder why the group not encouraged to fight: well they have had no practice with schiltrons. It is also why there is no room for people not following orders. When the one in charge tells the formation to move right they all must do so as one.

About the battle:

I need to know who is and who isn't fighting. If I don't get a reply I'm assuming your characters are not going to fight (that being the smart choice). Reason don't need to be given, that can be done in RPG just name something along the lines: Orthos if going to fight, Ellela and Gortick are not.


Currently those fighting (that I'm positive of):
Orthos
Tanara
Aidan


Not Fighting: Everoyone else *at this point*

Aidan is going to fight.

Guy, Marin, and Raschel are not.

So the answer would be smart

Drago and Hal will fight.

The House Gaurds will try to fight but Hal will try to get them to protect Allessa instead.

Obviously a couple of my legions would rip your precious Asier apart. *Ridiculas boast.*

Prolly not, I would favor the Aesir in a fight agenst your legions

from a human training all his life, to an aesir who had been training for ragnarok for eons

the aesir would win no contest

If it's a matter of training, and quality of weapons, the Aesir win. If BD's legions are Force-sensitive and trained in arts that the Aesir were not trained in, then it's more up in the air.
