The trend of people who wield only Spears continues, but with a twist!
VS Vaida: Rebecca and Lowen stepped forward onto the battlements of one of the large forts of Bern, and waited for her to spot them. They didn't have to wait long before a jet black blur flew overhead and Vaida, one of the Wyvern Generals, starred down at them. Her wyvern roared, and she reared back, launching the spear at Rebecca with enormous force. Rebecca sidestepped the razor edged missile, which Vaida reeled in with a sturdy steel chain, much like a general, and Rebecca retaliated with a silver arrow aimed at the wings of the wyvern. It connected, tearing a hole in the leathery skin, and eliciting a roar of pain, telling the duo that their plan had worked. Rebecca took another shot, but Vaida was ready, and maneuvered so that the arrow connected with the armorlike scales on the wyverns forearm. She then ascended, and pulled into a steep dive, intending to impale and disembowel Rebecca, the only one who posed a threat to her, who quickly rolled out of the way to avoid a grisly end. Lowen saw a chance, and rushed in with his iron axe. With a mighty swing, strength bolstered by his charging mounts momentum, he brought down the axe on the rider of the currently grounded wyvern, apparently tearing into her shoulder. What he expected was a swift end to the fight, but what he got was barely any recognition of his attack, leaving her armor only slightly affected, as Vaida shrugged it off and pulled her spear from the ground, preparing to return to the air for more dives. Rebecca noticed however, that Vaida was a bit off balance from Lowens strike, and she took aim at the opening, a small spot left unguarded due to her armors displacement from the axe blow. She let loose her shot, which tore into Vaidas shoulder, causing her to lose her grip, falling from the back of her mount and onto the hard stone of the fortress.
Turns Taken: Either 11 or 12, depending on whether or not killing all the enemies prevents the xtra turn at the end. Up Next: Pale Flower of Darkness, Jerme edition! The VS section for that one is going to be rather short, no doubt.
Be warned, the VS Vaida section of this is my first attempt at a major action sequence, ever. I expect it to sound cheesy, and it's kinda long, but any thoughts on it are welcome!
I completely forgot Vaida gets her stats from the Uber Spear! Does she drop it on death? The action sequence is excellent, IMO; Lowen's 1 point of damage being significant was a nice touch. Vivid word choice! There's a couple of typos—"starred", and I think you missed an apostrophe, but I already forgot where it was. I'll look forward to seeing the next! I should have done one myself for Lloyd, but wimped out due to lack of ideas on how to write it. Now I'm thinking about doing one for Jerme VS Guy to make it up. Or Jerme VS Karel if I can't resist; it's such satisfying poetic justice—they even have similar first lines about a feast for their blade, but Karel's much less creepy.
Thanks for the feedback, and glad you liked it! Sadly, Vaida doesn't drop the Uber!Spear upon death, and the only way to get it is to use the Mine Glitch. Found near the bottom of the page here. Also, I didn't mind the lack of a fight sequence for Lloyd, since Guy apparently ganked him instantly with a crit, which doesn't leave much to work with.
