    Not going to lie, was kinda hoping you'd Total Defense as well.

    It was tempting, but I feel like people would be justified in yelling at me for it.

    Yeah, but the longer I can keep you crashed the less I have to deal with Doe Eyes Defense.

    Well, true. It would definitely be better for me to just match your total defense with my own because if I last three rounds I un-crash, so a round where neither one of us swing is good for me. But... yeah.

    Full Defense explicitly cannot be used while in Initiative Crash, BTW.

    The fact that it has an Initiative cost plays into that, I'm sure, but I think that's at least partly to make turtling and waiting for the automatic reset after three turns a less viable strategy to take.

    True. Nothing forcing you to attack.

    Incidentally, while I think fighting to the end (or nearer to it, at least), will make for a more dramatic conclusion, Lupo did leave the door open for conceding a fight, if things get worse and Ivory Knife decides she'd rather not be literally knocked out.

    If she actually gets grappled or hit with a decisive that doesn't knock her out instantly, she may well tap out. Getting suplexed into the ground is not her idea of a good day. We'll see.

    Well that was... disastrous. I finally actually connect with a grapple, only to fail to roll the two successes needed to actually make the maneuver - and waste a point of willpower in the process. Meanwhile, Ivory Knife crashes me gaining initiative shift.

    Waiting for the round summary from Ascension to confirm that neither of us goofed, but if Ivory Knife does go first, she'll delay to see what Tuoni does.

    So, it looks like no one really put anything into defending themselves this round, so both attacks hit... but, as pfm pointed out, Tuoni fails the grapple gambit. Ouch.

    Eurus: This is... a very important factor that I've only just realized. It looks like you're not factoring the Accuracy bonus into your Withering attack pools. I think it's probably best not to try to go back and retcon every Withering attack you've made so far, but for this one, I'll roll the extra dice for you, since the added threshold successes may well be important.

    Your Nightingale kiai here is effectively a Light Artifact Thrown Weapon at Close Range, so it receives a +5 Accuracy bonus:
    (5d10)[9][1][6][1][7](24)

    More on attack resolution in a moment.

    Those extra dice bring Ivory Knife up to five threshold successes (counting Tuoni's description of his counterattack as a 1-point defensive stunt... it's a little borderline, but it works).

    That means she deals 9 Withering damage, and the entire complexion of this match changes.

    Ivory Knife gains the Initiative Shift bonus from Crashing the person who Crashed her. She doesn't need to reset to base, because her initiative gain from her successful attack already places her at 10 Initiative, but she can still roll a new Join Battle roll and add it to that 10.

    Additionally, her action for this round resets, allowing her to act again immediately before the next round begins.

    Ivory Knife is at 10+JB Initiative, Tuoni is at -2 and Crashed, and I will never again suggest that someone should concede a match before it's really over.

    We're on Ivory Knife's second action of this round, if she wants to take it. After that we'll regain motes and go... back to Ivory Knife, most likely.

    Wow. Initiative shift is more hardcore than I realized. Also, that's an incredibly embarrassing mistake to have been making.

    After that Instill resolves, you each regain 5m and we go back to Ivory Knife's action (for the third time in a row) at Initiative 14.

    Tuoni's Full Defense is still active until his next turn, however. When he does come up again, though he won't be able to use it again, since it's unusable in Crash (even though Crane Form reduces its Initiative cost to 0, that restriction still applies).

    One success on seven dice... *grumble grumble*.

    Edit: Ascension - I'm 90% sure Full Defense doesn't raise my resolve, in which case the instill attempt passes.

    Ivory Knife is sewing dissent among the ranks! To restore order, I recommend DECIMATION!

    Decimation only means a tenth of you die, and since there's just eight competitors to begin with...

    I guess one of Harnapuul's palanquin bearers bites it?

    Per the last time this happened, Tuoni will delay as well... mostly because I need to sit down and look at my options. And I won't really have time to do that until late tonight / tomorrow morning.

    ...and all of my options are horrible.

    I think you can't delay in Crash? Can't find a specific reference for some reason, maybe I'm overlooking it or maybe I'm wrong.

    Just double-checked. Ain't no rule you can't delay while Crashed. Just can't use charms with 'Perilous' keyword or make decisive attacks.

    Delaying costs 2 initiative, and if you crash yourself by any means, you lose another 5 initiative, but only upon entering crash, so that might be what you're thinking of.

    Hmm. I suspect you can't delay in Crash, partly because it has an Initiative cost and partly because you're at the end of the initiative order already and, as I've said, I don't think you can skip turns in Exalted. There's essentially no later you can delay to at this point.

    One thing you might consider for Tuoni is Aiming. Although ranged attacks are more dependent on it, you can Aim a melee attack, and it would give you non-Charm dice toward your next attack.

    Yeah, aim was what I was looking at but I was still hoping to find a better option. I edited my aim action into my last post rather than double-post.

    I'm not wasting time, I swear. As long as this is an acceptable circumstance to instill and I'm not mangling the social rules (or miscounting Tuoni's willpower) this should work...

    Quick note Eurus, your last few IC posts havn't had the in-character-speech color-font for Ivory Knife. Just if you have time to edit that so it's consistent.

    Oops. I made those posts from my phone, and the color button is fiddly, so that'd be why. I'll fix it.
