Re: OOC
not you, Ru-Fang ^_^ I don't expect the PCs to post any more often than I do ^_^ (unless they happen to be in a conversation with each other)

Re: OOC
Well, when you're working on the "challenge for Kedo" just remember -- Kedo falls, Sakura doesn't have a chance ...

Well, more or less ... ;p

Re: OOC
okay, before I post enemy actions, let me make sure I've got everyone's posts right:

Kedo, Bayushi Kenshin, and Doji Sotan are blocking arrows with their bodies
Daidoji Sakura is casting (yes, the house rule applies to all rolls, including spell casting)
Moto Gyatso is going on full defense
Lin Ru-Fang is running away from the archers
Kakita Ichiro hasn't posted yet

so only Lin Ru-Fang is actually moving everyone else is playing sitting duck ^_^

Re: OOC

 Not so much 'sitting' as 'wanting very badly to not be here but not about to assume that someone clever enough to set what look like Harriers on us is stupid enough to send only four to kill a group like this one.

 Particularly since they shouldn't have known that we knew what they were up to and could have used subterfuge... Kedo's concerned that there might be more than one string to their bows, so to speak.

 So he's waiting on Sakura... then bottling it and running for cover like a little girl.

Re: OOC
Just to be clear, Kenshin will attack if any of the opponents come in range. But they haven't approached yet, so -- for the moment -- he'll just have to observe until they do ...

Re: OOC
One more question, GM-Sama -- would the Bushi (I'm thinking of Kenshin and Ichiro here) have their bows with them? My guess would be "no", but I figured it's better to ask than assume ...

Re: OOC
I'm going to rule no, in this case, because there wouldn't be a reasonable reason for you to be carrying bows in the city--or expecting trouble requiring them.  If you were Tsuruchi then you would certainly be carrying your bows, and I would expect Shinobi, Harriers, and other 'ninja' schools to be carrying easily concealable ranged weapons, but I can't think of a good reason for court bushi to be armed as if going to war in the city...

Re: OOC

 Hell, Kedo doesn't even wear armour in the city - he has a set, but if it's considered cause enough to be killed on sight 'for banditry' on the roads, it can only be worse in town.

Just to let you know I'm still here and still interested, the GM knows I just had some family things to work out, but I'm here.

Re: OOC

 Okay... Kedo will move with Sakura, but I kind of need to know whether or not any arrows are aimed at her (or him) and whether or not they get through the charging Bushi before I structure my post. ^_^

Re: OOC
no arrows got through the second round, but you are all clustered close enough together that you can't tell who they're aimed at
Kenshin is charging away from the archers towards the Courtier District and is not the target of any of the arrows

Re: OOC

 Oh, hey... two thousand posts!

 And I was kind of wondering whether any got past the people moving forwards so Kedo had to cut them... ^_^

Re: OOC

 Oh, hey there...

 And oops, sorry GM, I didn't realise that they were taking a round out to feather me good n' proper... assume then that that defence-roll-with-void will go up against their next shot unless I get out of the way first (which is very likely) in which case I just duck into cover and let them shoot whom they want.

 Except Sakura. ^_^

Re: OOC
Do I need to roll anything to try to convince the bushi to not attack me? Surely that is some sort of social trait roll...

Re: OOC
Hi everyone, I guess I'll go ahead and introduce myself. I'll be playing Kakita Aki and I hope to start as soon as I can be fitted in lol.

I'm new to the system but I'm excited about learning it and playing in what looks like a well established game with a good set of player.
