    I was figuring so as well, since I'm not sure how far apart we are from each other. Not that it'll matter past round 1...

    Mm, I hadn't thought to mandate a starting range. Call it Short?

    I had intended for y'all to just roll Join Battle as soon as you were ready, but I can toss up an IC post to the effect of "Well, get on with it then!" if you'd like me to do so.

    Hmm. It's a bit late, but would you mind if I squeezed a Read Intentions into the pre-battle preparations? I couldn't really think of any logical intimacies to fish for, and it's not likely to be relevant in this fight anyway, but for my own curiosity I can probably come up with something.

    EDIT: I actually got ninja'd here. Oh well, too late now. I'll go fishing later , heh.

    What, exactly, Tuoni does next will depend on whether he wins the Join Battle roll (at least, I think that's the way this is supposed to work).

    I also completely forgot I could use excellencies to add dice to Join Battle, so if it's alright with Ascension I'll spend three motes and roll those here.

    Total of 8. Tuoni wins, Open Palm Caress kicks in. All bystanders plus Tuoni can make Read Intentions actions reflexively to see through the ruse. I'll put up an IC post in a minute.

    EDIT: Uh. What happens if Open Palm Caress boosts Ivory Knife's initiative above Tuoni's?

    Then you go first. And if His Highness' attendants count as bystanders, you likely will. You also get the option of spending a willpower to go for a clinch or decisive ambush if Tuoni can't beat your Read Intentions.

    Well, should probably roll RI for Wic. Since his last post was watching the fight begin closely, I'll treat that as a retroactive stunt for RI. (5d10)[9][8][10][3][9](39)

    There are a lot of bystanders, yeah. The gods (who probably have pretty good read intentions, admittedly), the king's attendants (if they're paying attention to the fight at all), and all six of the other fighters.

    *nods* And it's a point for each one you fool, capped by your Manipulation. So you'll pretty likely be boosted to 13.

    How? The max a static defence can be is six. Boosting that with Charms is doable but IDR you using that... did I miss something?

    Indefinite maintained charm. It's in her sheet as a "this is just always on" thing.

    You know, I should have anticipated this and figured out what all the NPCs' Read Intentions were before I announced this as the first fight.

    I... did not do that.

    Rolls coming... later, unfortunately, but with Guile 8 it's practically guaranteed you'll be getting boosted past Tuoni's Initiative 10.

    Okay, I'm not counting King Harnapuul's palanquin-bearers, they're [spoilers] and really aren't paying attention to anything.

    That said, we've still got Lupo, three gods, and three NPC fighters, plus the remaining PCs, and you only need two more to fail (after Wic) in order to pass Tuoni's initiative, and if four fail you max out your initiative gain from Open Palm Caress.

    Lupo's throwing a Sidereal Excellency on this to reduce his target number to 4 and boost his dice pool a bit: (10d10)[9][9][10][1][10][6][8][3][8][10](74) (Success with overkill)
    Five-Days Darkness: (8d10)[6][9][5][7][7][2][2][7](45) (Fail)
    Kokage: (8d10)[5][8][5][1][10][9][7][9](54) (Fail)
    The Golden Lord: (14d10)[5][10][4][2][9][2][10][9][2][9][5][10][2][2](81) (Success)

    Jai... hahahahah, no, there's no way he's beating that Guile. Jai fails. (Fail)
    King Harnapuul: (8d10)[10][8][1][5][5][7][7][7](50) (Fail)
    Mourning Blade: (5d10)[3][1][4][8][1](17) (Fail)

    EDIT: Ivory Knife has Initiative 13 and acts first.

    Now I also need to know how you are getting those (Success) and (fail) tags to pop up. I know you’re not editing, as that would break the rolls.

    Spoiler titles IIRC are just putting equals sign into a spoiler and then your title. Like so

    Spoiler: Black Claw
    Show
    Black Claw!


    And you can totally edit a post that has rolls in it, just so long as your edits don't affect any of those rolls directly. They'll have a set of little [rollWhatever] tags; just don't mess those up and you'll be fine.

    Yeah, as long as you don't edit any of the [roll(number)] style tags or change what order they're in it should work. I forget if you can do, like, [roll=Attack] to add a title to your roll...

    Also, now that I think of it, I probably need to know if Tuoni's read intentions succeeds or fails before I can do my thing.

    I don't think you can title rolls on this forum. You can on Myth-Weavers, but not here. Titling rolls works just as you say! I'm surprised. You can see how that looks in the test spoiler below. You can also, yes, edit a post around rolls without any trouble, as long as you don't alter the [roll#] tags or add any new rolls.

    You can title spoilers by putting an equals sign after the word "spoiler" in the tag that opens the spoiler and fitting your title between that equals sign and the end bracket.

    Spoiler: Test

    I'm going to double check whether you can title rolls, might as well:
    Attack - (1d20)[12]
    Attack - (4d10)[7][9][10][8](34)

    For the Mastery benefit? Yeah, you need to know if his roll succeeds... but I just took the liberty of checking his sheet, and... well, it is theoretically possible that he could beat your Guile with a helluva Stunt and a good roll on top of that, but it's not exactly likely...

    I may not have exercised sufficient foresight in pairing off fighters.

    I mean, there's a good chance that if this ambush thing doesn't work, it'll go downhill sharply? We'll see! In the interest of not slowing things down too much I'll post now, and if I turn out to be wrong and can't do the ambush, well, resolve it as a normal attack I guess.

    Eh, if I understand it correctly, Open Palm Caress only works on Join Battle rolls, and what's the point in having an ability if it can't reliably work? I can't imagine there are many builds that allow for both heavy investment in Martial Arts and Socialize besides Black Claw style, so it's unlikely anybody would be statted properly to beat Ivory Knife at her own game anyway.

    Besides, it seems to me that you can't even use Open Palm Caress if you beat your opponent's join battle, so unless Tuoni has the largest JB pool out of all of us, it's not like he was necessarily set up for failure. Fight's only just begun anyway.

    Oh, if you see this before you post, give me a second to get one peanut gallery post in. I'd like to sell the whole "Everybody thinks the Black Claw is on the defensive" bit by having someone comment on it before she turns this into a brutal ambush.

    Checking if this is valid before I do it:

    Is it acceptable for Ivory Knife to flurry in a Performance+Charisma action to instill a minor intimacy of fear toward herself? Singing so terrifyingly that people are afraid of you is part of what Nightingale style does, after all.

    Okay, if you want the Ambush, you need to make a Decisive Attack, but if you make a Decisive Nightingale Kiai that's a really intimidating song, yes, you can use the penalty-less flurry provided by Voice of the Night Bird to flurry a Performance + Cha Instill-fear action with the attack.

    In related news, yikes. I think you've succeeded in instilling fear of Ivory Knife in me!

    I think there's a specific martial-arts charm that does exactly that.

    Edit: Yes there is, it's called Terrifying Battle Shriek, and it's indeed terrifying.

    Also, opening with a decisive attack? Wow. That is bold.
