My name is Bastien St. Claire. Perhaps you've heard of me? I'm a world-renowned duelist from Frontia, currently serving as the Ambassador to Westenra in this time of darkness.

Anyway... I'm itching for a fight. Why? Because its what I do, what I'm good at, and what I've trained my entire life to be good at.

I propose a duel: A contest to two points, a point being gained by scoring a hit against your opponent. No items, no "Gifts," only those powers and techniques with a blade that you've learned throughout your life. And you only gain a point through a legitimate hit, not through abilities or attacks that inflict damage just for damage's sake.

I'm ready when you are.

(OOC: Please make sure that your character is of an equal or nearly equal level!)

Azerin steps up, brandishing his sword, Redemption. "If it's a fight you're itching for, lad, then I'll-" stops mid sentence, reading the part of the message specifically stating a character of equal or nearly equal level.

"... well, guess I'm way out of your league,kid.", he says with a shrug and a smile, promptly turning around and leaving.

Suddenly a large shadow blots out the sun. From the sky descends a magnificent airship. Red scales gleam across the hull and gold accents glimmer in the light. A man climbs over the railing and spreads a pair of draconic wings. He flies down to the ground, toward Bastien.

"Greetings, old boy!" He shouts during his descent. "I've heard some rumours of a duel! Thought I'd try my hand at it! What do you say?" He lands lightly on the ground and approaches Bastien, folding his wings as the airship ascends out of sight. Two horns sweep back from his forehead and his eyes gleam red. His skin is faintly scaled and has a crimson hue. His ears come to a point and he wears well tailored leather armor stylized with scales and flames. Golden bracers cover his wrists and red leather boots adorn his feet. A large serrated sword is strapped to his back. "My name is Ryll Kandurr, Captain of the Red Dragon's Hoard! Pleasure to make your acquaintance!" His accent is strange, unusual for anywhere in Elaria.

"Well? What say you, Bastien? Shall we duel?" He grins and unstraps the blade from his back. "I believe me and Deekin here will give you a run for your money!"

---

OOC: Just wondering about the items clause you have. Does that mean no item powers or are we also not using properties? I'm fine with either way. Smile

No item powers either, only powers from your class and race.

I'll get the battle map ready today, and then we'll begin our duel!

Okay, I gained some levels during yesterday's session, and got some more magic items, so level up to 12 and pick out two magic items: 1 Lvl 12 (or lower) and 1 Lvl 14 (or lower).

I just upgraded my sword and armor instead of choosing new items. Just waiting for a reply to my PM before I choose my paragon path. Smile

(OOC: I'm actually not going to bother making up a map for this duel. It will be fought in a 10x10 square, A-J, 1-10.)

Bastien smiles and extends his hand to the newcomer.

"It's a pleasure to meet you, Captian Ryll. I am Bastien St. Claire, Baron of the Court of Frontia, Ambassador to the Kingdom of Westenra. I would be honored to meet you in the dueling square."

Okay, let's begin.

Bastien begins in square F-8, his weapons drawn, ready for battle, a smile on his lips all the while.

Initiative +16

Using my utility power, Eldritch Speed. Gives +5 Initiative and an extra move action during first round of combat.

Starting in A-1

---

Initiative +21

I can roll twice and take either result because of the Danger Sense feat.

Ryll walked over to the corner of the square and sheathed his sword. He leaned against the wall and waited for Bastien to be ready. It didn't take long and soon enough the bell rang for the duel to begin. The strange winged man winked at his opponent from across the ring and then was suddenly attacking from behind!

---

Move Action: Quickling Stride to G-9 (I can move 12 squares)
Drawing weapon as part of the same action to attack because of Quick Draw.
Standard Action: Glamor Blade, +20 vs AC and I can roll twice and take either result because of Lucky Start.

Hit.

Bastien is momentarily caught off guard by his opponent's seemingly magical advance. He turns and grins at Ryll, though, before making a move of his own.

Immediate Reaction: Yield Ground.

Personal, Trigger: an enemy damages you with a melee attack

Effect: I can shift 3 squares, and gain a +2 bonus to all defenses until the end of my next turn.

Also, I gain a +1 bonus to AC and Reflex whenever I shift (Davros Elden's Defensive step training).

So, my AC is now 33, Fort is 28, Ref is 32, Will is 25, and Shield is 28.

I shift to square H-7.

Continue.

OOC: I'm not sure how to handle this next part, since you moved before the power was done, but I'll follow exactly how the power says.

---

As Bastien quickly backs away, grinning at Ryll, he's startled to hear his voice behind him. "Neat trick, old boy! Didn't realize you could move so fast. And put up quite a guard as well!"

"Yes, I am impressed." Rylls voice was in front once more but Bastien had not taken his eyes off of him. Indeed, there were now two Rylls! The one in front quickly steps up to his opponent and both of the winged men shift into a defensive stand. Their swords glow and small ethereal shields flare into light around them. Noticing the confusion on Bastiens face, Ryll grinned. "Cheer up, chap! I noticed you had two blades-"

"-and decided to even that number for myself!" The other finished.

---

OOC: Okaaay... there are two Rylls now. We'll call them Ryll (A) and Ryll (B). Ryll (B) appeared in I-6, adjacent to Bastien. Ryll (A) shifted to G-8 with the extra move action from Eldritch Speed, and is now flanking Bastien with... himself. As a result of the shift and the Boots of the Fencing Master, I gain a +1 bonus to AC and Reflex. This goes for BOTH Rylls. (Since we share all statistics.)

Minor Action: Host of Shields stance. I gain +2 AC and Reflex until the stance ends. Again, this goes for BOTH Rylls. (Again, share statistics. See above.)

My AC is now 37, Fort is 24, Relfex 29, Will 22 and Shield is 25.

Any questions? I realize that was a bit complicated. Razz

Either way, End of Turn.

(OOC: lol, Dude, seriously? This was supposed to be a standard duel, no magic, etc.)

Move Action: Agile Approach

I can shift 3 squares, so long as I end adjacent to an enemy. I shift to F-9, behind Ryll A. This also gives me another +1 to my AC and Reflex, putting them at 34 and 33, respectively.

Minor Action: Offhand Strike

Attack: +20 vs. AC

OOC: That's fine, lol, it's just not something one would find in a typical duel. Besides, there are always melee basics, lol. And... uh... You posted that as Sigil!

Okay.

So, that's one point each.

Seeing that his unexpected attack had had its desired effect, Bastien immediately followed it up with another attack, this one designed to exploit a weakness he had detected in Ryll's defense.

Standard Action:

Melee Basic Attack: +20 vs. Reflex (due to my Deft Blade feat, my basic attacks can target AC or Reflex).
