    A1.0 - Arena (Dethrial)

    Post by ★Yuki~♪ on Fri Sep 02, 2016 3:36 pm

    Dethrial is standing in the prep room, watching the current match unfold through a window. The arena is not large but big enough to manouver, run, and throw objects or weapons.. The center of the arena is empty, with various pillars set up in a circle around the outside.

    A man in basic leather gear is fighting against a woman in heavy armor. The woman is jabbing her spear at the man who skillfully dodges her every move, taking the occasional stab at her with his longsword. The two don't seem very evenly matched with the man having an incredible easy time navigating around his opponent. He gets a little greedy and stabs his sword straight past her spear, which barely misses his shoulder, cutting his messy shirt. He sees this as a great opportunity to slash at her, but the surprisingly nimble knight drops to her knees, narrowly avoiding his sword and comes around for a swing with her spear. The man is knocked off his feet and lands harshly on the ground. When the woman attempts to take a stab the man beneath her thrusts his weapon up at her. Luckily for her she manages to drop the spear and bash the sword away from him with her shield.

    Having disarmed him she steps on his chest so he won't bother getting back up. Meanwhile three attendants enter the arena to escort them out with her declared victor.

    Shortly after another attendant enters the room Dethrial is in. It's the woman from the booth and she cringes briefly before walking up to the door to the arena, waving her hand about infront of it. "You again, huh? Are you ready for the fight? I hear your opponent is a total pushover." she explains rather disinterested as the door swings open, giving Dethrial free access to the outside.

    Dethrial cocks his head to the side trying to understand the woman's behavior and spoke up quickly. "This is not a fight to the death again right?" The woman sighed and repeated the rules as she pushed him outside.The door shut with a loud clang and Dethrial let his shoulders sag for a moment as he calmed himself and slotted the face plate back into his helmet.

    "...welcoming Dethrial! A foreigner who has come here for a taste of real competition!" the crowd cheers louder indicating new fighters are a rare and exciting sight. "And his opponent... Bo-Yeoun! A newcomer who has only just arrived in town a little while ago!"

    Dethrial doesn't seem too interested in his environment. Still there isn't much for cover aside from a few generic pillars. His opponent is another man he recognizes with little effort; The energetic young man who cut in line to sign up.

    Again the voice continues; "Which of the newbies will walk out of here with victorious and bathing in glory? And who is the poor sod who will get a beating and walk home empty handed? Let's find out?"
    The crowd continues their loud shouting and bellowing and Dethrial finishes up any pre-fight preperations he might need before the commentator starts the match.
    "Let the match begin!" the voice says and Bo-Yeoun immediately takes action. He begins by sprinting to the nearest pillar where he stands and beckons Dethrial who is only a few meters away. "Hey there buddy. I guess this is what they call fate, huh?" he jokes and pulls a rather long Dao Saber from his back. "You ready for a good time?" he smiles at Dethrial, eagerly awaiting his attack.

    Everything faded as even the applied voice of the announcer and the roar of the crowd turned to a hushed din as Dethrial prayed quietly with three fingers of his right hand pressing against his forehead."Adrial, guide my blade and stray mine enemy's. Orniel, give me focus and clarity. And great Shepherd, lead my heart to calm waters and let no outside force interfere on this day."

    Dethrial's eyes were still shut as the sound of hurried footsteps made his ears twitch. "Hurried, undisciplined, aggressive, they're fast...smells like a male. and judgeing by where her stoped he by the closest pillar to me" his mind would always break things down before he would ever make a move. He opened his eyes to see a the same man who had cut in front of him in line and this time he had a large saber on his back. The man spoke a few words and drew his sword with a smile. "arrogant, he must have some skill with that sword but it's too long and heavy for him to just use brute force...must be planning to use some acrobatics or high speed to strike, and he thinks I'm going weighed down by all my armor...good."

    Dethrial then pulls the bar from his left side and lifts it to chest level and pulls the ornate hands to one of the ends and whispers "Trelia, Bruge I need a stone breaker with a cross guard." The hands begin to work turning the iron molten and shaping a weapon from it. Dethrial kept a watchful eye on the man as the hilt and grip was formed and was soon followed by a three foot long spike with square blocks all the way down its edge and stopped leaving about 8 inches for a hardened tip. With his blade made he held it in his right hand and kept in his shield in his left, and took up a defensive stance.

    "Some toy you have there!" Bo says jokingly and twirls his blade. "I got some nice tricks of my own."
    Bo continues to twirl his blade eventually throwing it up in the air where it spins just long enough for him to pick it out of the air with both hands. To the crowds amazement, likely not so much for Dethrial, what used to be one sword is now two of equal size. Bo throws Dethrial a confident smirk and finally says. "Well... you won't come to me so I will come to you big guy."

    He takes a few steps and then in one smooth motion spins and lunges forward, preparing to strike with both blades at once from the air.

    Dethrial reacts quickly as he rushes forward placing himself underneath Bo as he falls and bashes him with his shield, in his other hand he hold the stone breaker ready to attack as soon as he lands if he avoids the shield. Dethrial also lets out a loud roar to try and intimidate Bo so he loses focus or becomes fearful.

    Bo slams into the shield, swords first, with all of his weight, barely stopping his face from connecting with the blow. He uses the force to push himself off into a spin, where he slashes at the shield twice while his momentum carries him a good whiles away back to the pillar. "Nice one." he comments and readies his stance. "Your turn, now!"
    Dethrial recognizes his position as a means to getting into the air quickly, likely in order to attack from above again.

    Dethrial stands his ground for a moment and pulls out his second iron bar behind his shield and uses half of it to add some added protection to the bottom of his shield and four throwing knives without showing anyone the knives and only looking like he's adding to his shield. He then runs horizontal to Bo and closes the gap while stabbing at Bo with his stone-breaker.

    Bo-Yeun reacts quickly and leaps into the air, spinning himself sideways in a way that causes his weapons to rotate around him like a bladed shield. Based on his speed and trajectory, Dethrial knows he will likely land behind him, facing sideways away from him.

    "Why would he do something so flashy?" Dehtrial said to himself. The man named Bo seemed to want to make a show of the fight. Dethrial grimaced "I really hope I'm not going to have to hurt him badly."

    Dethrial slows down skidding a bit across the dirt floor and swings his stone-breaker at Bo spinning blades as to stop his spin and damage his swords. When Bo loses control Dethrial will throw two of the throwing knives at Bo one at his legs and the other at his chest. If Bo is hit or stunned Dethrial will sweep his legs with the stone-breaker.

    The force of the two swords colliding sends a sharp metallic sound echoing through the arena. The crowd roars loudly as one of Bos two swords goes flying into the air, breaking apart in two from the impact.
    Due to his speed and agility he instinctively reacts, trying to manage his weight in a way that will hopefully land him safely. As he does this he begins twirling his sword, similar to how a fan would rotate, causing an extention for the Dao to slide out of the hilt, effectively making the sword into a lance. One of the two knives is deflected by the new form of the weapon, while Dethrials forethought causes one of the daggers to graze his chest mid turn. The sudden stinging cauases Bo to gasp and lose control of his pattern, which lands him face-first in the dirt a little bit away from Dethrial. Again the crowd cheers loudly and begins to call Dethrial's name. They are excited for his incredible ability to outsmart his faster opponent. 

    Bo stays flat on the ground, with his halberd at his side, unmoving.

    Dethrial slowly approaches Bo from the side with the halberd and uses his stone-breaker to fling his weapon away and quickly pulls his weapon back to avoid any surprises. He then gets behind Bo and places the tip of his blade at Bo's lower spine to make sure he does not move as he places the edge of his shield on Bo's neck and as he is lowering his knees to pin Bo he growls "I do not want to hurt you but if you move, I will have to injure you so you can't fight back."

    Bo tenses a little, but Dethrial can tell the guy isn't stupid enough to try anything. Although his motives were clearly to fake out Dethrial, it's very obvious that in this position he doesn't have any real way of fighting back.

    ...

    Or so he thought. A sudden explosion of strong winds, dust, fire and smoke envelope the two faster than Dethrial can react. He clearly feels the man still pinned under him and decides to take appropriate action.

    When the smoke finally clears there is simply a mound of dirt and a few rocks underneeth Dethrial. He looks up and a few feet across to the next pillar that Bo-yeoun is leaning against. His clothing is torn at the side, indicating that Dethrial only barely missed his target. 

    Bo gives his opponent a confident, smug, smirk and lifts his spear with his foot - kicking it up into the air and catching it. "That was really close, I believe-" 

    Suddenly the commentator interrupts the match "And that is a win for Dethrial the newcomer!"
    The crowd cheers and clearly both fighters are extremely confused. Three attendants exit through various doors and make their way over to them. 
    "Bo-yeoun tried to pull a clever fake-out but clearly underestimated his opponent, having spent a whole 10 seconds on the ground without action!"

    Bo looks a little disappointed, but he continues to smile at Dethrial with the same smug care-free smirk as before. "Well, I guess that's that big guy." he says and the attendants escort the two of them out of the arena to the sound of the cheering crowd.

    Info 
    Subduing a foe without Checkmate is a possible feat. While normally the opponent in question has to be backed into a Checkmate to subdue or end them, sometimes outside factors or a sneak attack can end the conflict without the need for a Checkmate. Always be sure to try and understand every angle of the conflict and think of ways to use the environment or other characters to your advantage. Something as simple as bringing the right person or item with you or understanding the limitations of a fight can win an encounter before it has begun.

    "What an incredible display!" the commentator exclaims as the two are escorted out of the arena. "Yet another exciting match brought to you here today by these two skilled fighters!"

    On his way out Dethrial has a run in with the woman who signed him up for the arena. She seems slightly less disinterested, but still rather cold. "Well that was something." she says as she unlocks the door out. "You have some decent potential, keeping up with an opponent much faster than you."
    She adjusts her glasses which flash breifly. "Good luck for your future endeavors."

    With that she shoves Dethrial out the door and locks it behind him. He makes his way out of the Arena. 


    Info
    Dethrial has left.

    The match is over. Congratulations on your win.
    Dethrial receives 1 gold for winning.
    Dethrial receives 1 gold for fighting a new opponent.
