    Xenalite pounds down the first with as hard a blow as she can, but seems the ice is still uncracked. She puzzles over this and then strikes another.

    ((PeebothuhluPeebothuhlu, you have hundreds of enemies on both sides. If you want, you can use this round to create another ice trap. 3 = success. Effect: your Magic Atk rolls shoot ice at both front and rear oni.))

    Wynry is momentarily stunned. She expected many more oni to come, but not this many. When she snaps out of it, she positions herself above the middle ranks, able to see and shoot a bit farther than at the back, but not exposed to attackers as she would be at the front.

    Doing what she does best, Wynry takes aim with her bow and shoots at the oncoming oni.

    Suny does what she knows best.


    Spending but a moment, she stands still... closes her eyes and invokes her influence upon her element.

    [​IMG]

    With a brief surge of magic she over herself in a sheen of water. So adorned she litterally throws her glistening self at the enemey.

    As Wynry flies over the samurai, she sees a narrow beam of light shining down upon Suny. It's the high noon sun, shining through a vertical hole in the cavern. It is wide enough for a fairy to fly through, and smooth, as if magically bored (not that Wynry knows of a fairy spell that bores through solid rock). If she wanted to, Wynry could escape to safety... but the brave little fairy looses her magical arrows!

    Xenalite's ice-coated axe slices demons with ease. ((Rolled 8 x2 ice damage = 16 kills.)) But none of the ice comes off... not even a crack.

    Einin flings a couple of small rocks. They aren't impressive weapons, but they are wet enough that they do more damage than they should. ((Normal damage--just saying the rocks are deadly due to the demons' weakness.)) Seeing that even shale is deadly in her talons, Einin can choose to shoot from the middle position or remain on the front.

    Suny's magic is not enough to create a trap like the one outside, but she feels the magic is strong enough that she can do more--so she rushes the enemy! ((Rolled 5 x2 water damage = 10 kills + minor effect.)) Suny is now close to the enemy—but the enemy does not want to touch her!

    Kikuchiyo breaks his sword over a demon's head. He hurls the hilt in frustration and picks up two chainsaw katanas. "I can't kill a lot with one sword."

    Master Kyuzo and his pupil, Katsu, unleash impressive combinations. Those in the middle loose arrows. Only Lt. Gorobei attacks the front—and all six of his arrows are embedded in heads and torsos!

    The demons fight back, attacking all on the front and rear! Kikuchiyo and Shichiroji are hit, but the master and young pupil each parry a barrage of attacks!

    ((pmmgpmmg, IrethIreth, roll FIGHT DEF. You need a 2 to succeed!

    @Everyone, attack twice!

    • @Anyone in Front/Rear, FIGHT/MAGIC ATK.
    • @Anyone in Middle, SHOOT/MAGIC ATK.


    Some Options:
    To change position, either:
    • Attack once and move,
    -or-
    • Combo and change dice to finish. (FIGHT ATK finish forces you to a Front or Rear position. SHOOT ATK finish let's you move to any position—Middle if none is stated.)

    Note: Suny's Magic-Fight Atk counts as a combo with finish, hence her automatic movement.

    For Samurai, any heroine can give a command without losing any attacks. Basically, you can tell samurai to move to the Middle position so he doesn't need to defend as often.))

    Einin's attempt to evade the demons' attack is less than effective--

    [​IMG]

    --but she refuses to yield, and lashes out with her talons!

    Then she retreats back to the middle position.

    ((That's one attack. Einin changed position, so she correctly only attacked once. Xenalite is obviously staying in melee range, so she gets a second attack.))

    Wynry manages to kill a few oni, but there are still dozens more. Her fellow combatants make a good show of themselves, the flash of light off their weapons is reflected in the slick walls of the tunnels.

    And then Wynry sees it. The walls are all dark and slick, even where no water or ice has touched. Volcanic heat plus the sand of the sea bed. Obsidian, black volcanic glass, hard and razor sharp if honed to an edge. The tunnels are coated with it.

    There are so many demons, something is needed to even the odds. Inspired by the previous ice spikes, Wynry gets an idea.

    She channels her magic and attempts to warp the obsidian near where the oni are charging in.

    [​IMG]

    The glass is hard, and will not yield easily. Still, Wnyry manages to cause some obsidian spikes to erupt from the walls, floor and ceiling, slashing and piercing the unfortunate oni caught in their path. Those that do not cut form a razor-sharp obstacle. Obsidian may be hard and sharp, but it is also brittle. A good strike from a metal weapon will shatter it. The oni will soon discover this, but for the moment at least, they cannot reinforce their front ranks, and they are easy prey for Wynry's arrows.

    ENEMY
    Front Oni ♥️x SCORES (Trapped!)
    Rear Oni ♥️x HUNDREDS



    Einin shakes off the blow from the enemy, hits back with lethal force, and swoops back presumably to hurl more stones.

    Xenalite takes a hit, and kills demons by the dozen. She doesn't recognize which oni struck her, likely because none of the bodies are recognizable.

    Inspired by Suny's ice trap, Wynry uses her knowledge of fire and earth to form deadly spikes of the own. Her first attempt shatters—killing a couple oni in the process. But her second try creates a deadly obstacle of razor-sharp needles!

    Suny focuses her magic, then shoots several ice spikes from her fingertips...
    [​IMG]
    ...and dashes back out of reach from the chainsaw blades.
    [​IMG]
    Once Wynry sets her trap, Suny coats the obsidian wall in ice.
    [​IMG]
    Her assist is not powerful enough to make the trap unbreakable, but the oni might not want to strike razor-sharp icy glass with chainsaw blades. No telling which way the shards will fly.

    As for the samurai, the captain commands all but Kikuchiyo to attack the enemies to the rear as he strikes down a dozen enemies at the front with his arrows—then he and his archers strike down a dozen more at the rear.

    The enemy retaliates. Though only a few oni can reach each fighter, the sight of hundreds of demons lunging at once is overwhelming! The silent Shichiroji somehow manages to parry and push, but even Master Kyuzo fails to defend. His topknot is buzz-cut off by a chainsaw naginata, but no blood is drawn. The same cannot be said for his pupil. The boy's a bloody mess. He won't survive another attack.

    On the front, the mighty Kikuchiyo again fails to fend off attacks aimed at himself and the amazon at his side!
    ((XenaliteXenalite, roll FIGHT DEF once! The oni's second attempt is cut off by Wynry's wall!))
    Before the oni can strike again, Wynry's wall impales the dead oni, effectively trapping the living oni behind glass razor blades and their own dead. Suny's magic assists the trap, which coats both the spikes and the corpses. Somewhere at the head of the line, shouting is heard in a strange language.

    From the rear, a unicorn-horned oni points a strange tube at the samurai captain. There is a loud BANG—an impossibly bright yellow beam emerges, grazing the captain and bursting with a splash of lava. The other archers dodge but poor Suny is caught in the blast!
    [​IMG]
    Fortunately, the nymph is only singed.

    An elderly-looking black-toothed oni fires a similar device, but aims upward—at our airborne heroines!
    ((EininEinin, WynryWynry, roll SHOOT DEF once!))

    Only the hundreds of oni at the rear are a threat. The scores at the front are trapped behind scores of their own dead, held in place by obsidian spikes, and frozen in place by ice.

    The clever fairy has found a way to buy time, and perhaps just in time for the young samurai, who will surely die if he takes another blow...

    ((Attacks inflict 3 damage each, but failure to dodge won't KO any of you, so—everyone but Xenalite—go ahead and roll two SHOOT/MAGIC attacks, unless you *want* to move and FIGHT.

    XenaliteXenalite,
    The front enemies are obscured by their own dead, so you need to attack the rear. Either move and FIGHT once, or SHOOT.

    If you SHOOT, here's the deal—

    Any attack from your axe inflicts double damage; however, if you SHOOT and combo, you need to finish the combo with FIGHT to pick up the axe on the same turn. This would also position you for a second fight attack.

    But if you SHOOT and do not combo, you either need to move or stay in the "middle" position and hurl objects (dead bodies, rocks or chainsaw blades) for a second SHOOT attack
    .))

    Einin swoops away from the beam of light as well as she may--

    [​IMG]

    --which is very well! Then she picks up chunks of ice in her talons to fling at the enemy.

    Defense is usually mitigated with overwhelming attack.

    'Lite hurls her axe at one of the oni-things holding the tube the sent a beam of light towards my friend the flying one.

    (Well, I was only trying to kill one)

    Then she leaps towards the rear...time for some bone breaking Greek wrestling.

    One shot knocks Suny off her feet!
    ((Suny ♥️♥️))
    Wynry feels the heat as she zips away from the beam!
    ((Wynry ♥️♥️♥️))


    ...


    Wynry once again attempts to shape the obsidian into a spiky wall...[​IMG]
    ...and once again, her first attempt shatters, killing two demons.

    The samurai and heroines attack! There are over 100 dead! But before the demons can strike back—
    [​IMG]
    —the fairy creates another wall.

    This one is not coated in ice, but any demon who tries to get through the spikes and impaled dead will have a bare-knuckle amazon to contend with.

    Wynry can shoot between the spikes; however, her tininess gives her another advantage which may be far more important right now. Namely, Wynry is the only one who can fly out the two-inch-wide hole in the ceiling.

    With the rest of the oni trapped, Einin takes the opportunity to sing the Sacrificial Maiden song her old mentor taught her back in the village when she was a human, and heal her allies as best she can:

    Despite her monstrous form having weakened her magic, Einin manages to cast a powerful spell!

    ((+3 HP

    Can heal Suny to full, heal the samurai boy to full, or spread the healing to both, or heal 3 people. The Captain has 2 HP, so he would be among the most damaged.))
