Augustus fiddles with the dials on his scattergun.  "Well, that was bracing.  Shall we?"

((OOC: So that will get you two venom-coated weapons. What weapons did you want to coat?

Wildcat? Were you going to use that Relic card?))

[[Uh, sure, she'll swap Alouette a High Noon card and do that - sorry, I was dithering over what to use it on 'cause Wildcat's such a gun bunny. It'd be kind of cool if she found a Karankawa polearm, but she'd still sort of flail about with it half the time. Maybe it'd help her calm down to Relicify Carl's knife...]]

Carl shrugs, blinking and waiting for his vision to clear.

"Careful,"
Wildcat cautions, watching Charging Bear. "Hey, Irish, mebbe it'd be smart t'get some on that thar ghost axe," she nods at the photograph-grey hatchet Mike brought back, then takes a snake head herself, glances at her Bowie, then narrows her eyes at Carl.

"Give me yer knife a minnit, Adder - gon' see if I can holy-water on this stuff."

Re: Chapter 17.1: The Second Coming ((Wendell Mine))
((OOC:

quote:
Snake Knife

This Bowie knife has been washed with holy water mixed with venom from a rattlesnake spirit. It retains the viciousness of the poison.

Power: The Snake Knife has 12 power points and a Faith die of d6. As an action, the wielder may spend 4 power points from the knife's reserve to coat the knife with mystical venom. With a successful Faith roll, the knife deals +2 damage (+4 on a raise) and if the damage results in a Shaken or better the victim must make a Vigor roll (at -2 on a raise) or suffer a level of Fatigue. This effect lasts for 3 rounds, and can be maintained beyond that by spending 1 power point per round. It regains 1 power point per hour. While the venom lasts, the knife can harm creatures vulnerable to magical attacks.

Taint: The Snake Knife can be dangerous if not handled properly. When the wielder rolls a 1 on his Fighting die (regardless of his Wild Die), he is automatically Shaken (this can cause a wound) and must make a Vigor roll or suffer a level of Fatigue.

Re: Chapter 17.1: The Second Coming ((Wendell Mine))
Carl gives her a suspicious look. "..."

Wildcat sighs in annoyance, and tries the experiment on her own weapon, piercing the brains of the skulls they've got and moving on almost before she's done. "Right, now let's git us closer to that shaman an' some more snakes t'cut."


[[Yeah, with those stats it's not much use to Carl. That's fine, though - means Wildcat gets some melee power and can loan it out at need.]]

"Makes me wish I still had my war club." Charging Bear said with a slight shrug as he looks at the obviously mystical happenings with Carl's knife.

Augustus started off.  "Very well, lead the way!"  Then, he stopped and turned around.  "Yes, they're leading us that way.  Follow!"

Re: Chapter 17.1: The Second Coming ((Wendell Mine))
((OOC: Just to be clear, I currently have one relicified knife that's been poisoned with the rattlesnake venom, leaving 3 heads left since Charging Bear mistook the survival roll for something to help Carl out. Are you folks doing anything else with the snake heads that are left at the moment, and, if so, what weapons are you trying to coat?))

Murphy pulls his bowie knife from the scabbard at his back.
"If you don't mind, I'll have me a taste of this. Just in case we run into an Englishman."
He grins, from ear to  ear. He swirls the blade around a few times to let the coat of poison dry. "Wouldn't have minded having you with me at the dance in Craughwell, that would've have been a fine occasion."

He puts the blade away again.
"Now can we please go and break that fucking picture so that I can go home to me wife and daughter already?"

"Stealin' the picture, not breakin'," Wildcat reminds, already moving off.

Carl uses the remnant head and crushes it underfoot, nodding anyone not gitting gone to do so.

[[12:39, Today: Carl Allans rolled 1,0 using d6-3,d6-3, rerolling max with rolls of 4,3. Survival.
12:39, Today: Carl Allans rolled 4 using 1d6, rerolling max with rolls of 4. red chippit.

Surely CB's roll would cover his axes if he so desired?]]

OOC: CB isn't one to poison his weapons ... if he's going to kill ya you'll be awake and armed ... oh wait. ;)
"We'll probably have to break it to stop it from working." Charging Bear said in a matter of fact manner.

Wildcat shoots the almost-naked man a glare. "Do y'all have snakes in yer ears? If that photergraph breaks, we'll be sittin' on clouds playin' harps with the rest of the county - Hell, mebbe half o' Texas an' a chunk of Mexico - before we even hear the crack! We'll be crow chow! Buzzard bait! Food fer fishes! Pro'ly all three at once 'pendin on where bits land! Hit that down heer, we go boom."

Re: Chapter 17.1: The Second Coming ((Wendell Mine))
((OOC: That's because the Snake Knife is a Relic gained from Wild Cat's Adventure Card, not a general statement on how I run poisoned weapons. The snake-venom thing was spoken of in dialog. Also, Wildcat has some ranting for you. *points up*))

In reply to Wildcat Hawkins (msg # 330):

Charging Bear shook his head, "I doubt we'll have much of a choice, unless you've magics up your sleeves to deal with those that can't be harmed by normal weapons. Besides if dying is what it take to keep the keeping the snake down ... then what are we to do?"

OOC: btw CB wasn't around when y'all were talking about the picture so this is news to him.

[[He was around the second time she explained it all, but he might've been groggy from gas.]]

Wildcat grits her teeth. "If'n the Lord don't grant us a safe way to steal it or take the shaman down quietly, Ah trust He will at least put some Comanch' with a lick of English in mah way to let 'im know about this whole dang mess. I am not feart to die, but I will not go with th' souls of Blackthorn and all the surroundin' towns - and Injuns - on mah conscience. Not if there is another way. None."

Carl paces slightly behind the native, listening, noting.

"I speak Shoshone actually. Regardless, do you think a shaman bent on killin' all the white man will GIVE you such a great tool in that mission? We will have to take it by force of arms or stealth, I am not too sure we can manage either with what we have. But lead on Ranger ... lead on." Charging Bear said quietly. His eyes seem set as though he's rather sure the group will met its end.

"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil..." Wildcat murmurs, forcing herself to cool down a bit.

"Considerin' his men'll die f'sure if he keeps it, I figger they jes' might be willin' to help,"
she says shortly. "Bar th' fact most'f us are white an' you only speak So-show-nee. An' Chair'kee, presumin'."

"Well, I'm not ready to die. I got a lot to live for. So maybe we focus on the 'getting-the-fucking-picture' instead of the 'dear-god-we're-all-gonna-die-part? Yes?"

"A-men, Irish...kinda troubled we ain't caught up to the others by now, though," the incadescent Ranger responds, squinting ahead.

Taking up the rear behind Charging Bear, Carl idly slaps the flat of his blade against the remains of his chaps as though herding the lot of them.

[[More Tracking/Notice rolls? New chapter?]]
