Hop Dover vs. Chainshank

Apr 17 00:44:38 <Ragazzo> A 'man' in a white waxy looking cloak watches shank. Few features are visible, as his face is hidden deep in a hood, but light glimmers through the clothing in a pattern almost like veins, tracing his limbs.
Apr 17 00:44:55 <Ragazzo> He's standing a good six or so yards behind the scarecrow.
Apr 17 00:44:55 <Dexanote> Oh you~
Apr 17 00:45:17 <Dexanote> Shank turns to look at the man. Hop Dover, I presume. "Fuck is this?"
Apr 17 00:45:35 <Ragazzo> You would be correct. "You're next challenger."

Apr 17 00:47:11 <Dexanote> "Lissen I gotta take me kid to soccer-"
Apr 17 00:47:33 <Ragazzo> "…you have a child?"
Apr 17 00:48:38 <Ragazzo> Hop tilts his head. Then coughs. Once…twice…a third, and then a candle springs from his mouth, bursting aflame as it does.
Apr 17 00:48:47 <Ragazzo> 4df+4 Defense check…
Apr 17 00:48:48 <CROM> Ragazzo: Defense check…: 5 (4df+4=-, +, +, 0)
Apr 17 00:49:05 * ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dexanote
Apr 17 00:49:08 <Ragazzo> He nimbly plucks it away, preventing any burns, and places it in a holder.
Apr 17 00:49:43 <Dexanote> "… I don' even know yor name an' I know I don' like you."
Apr 17 00:50:14 <Ragazzo> "I am known as Hop. And you are?"
Apr 17 00:50:15 <Dexanote> 4df+5 Shank pulls the Scythe out of his coat and knocks Hop around the head a bit with the butt of the Scythe.
Apr 17 00:50:16 <CROM> Dexanote: Shank pulls the Scythe out of his coat and knocks Hop around the head a bit with the butt of the Scythe.: 5 (4df+5=-, 0, +, 0)

Apr 17 00:51:22 <Dexanote> "Stop squirmin."
Apr 17 00:51:41 <Ragazzo> Hops chuckles, backing up a bit, and coughs again, lightly. "I think not…"

Apr 17 00:52:27 <Ragazzo> Easily placed into a second holder, that's both hands occupied, but shank wil lnote those are some quite bright golden flames…
Apr 17 00:54:12 <Dexanote> 4df+5 "Stop that."
Apr 17 00:54:12 <CROM> Dexanote: "Stop that.": 5 (4df+5=+, -, 0, 0)
Apr 17 00:54:20 <Dexanote> He turns and slashes again.
Apr 17 00:54:50 <Ragazzo> 4df+4 Hops jumps, smiling, a flicker of lights glinting through the gap in his teeth, and jetting otu the hood.
Apr 17 00:54:50 <CROM> Ragazzo: Hops jumps, smiling, a flicker of lights glinting through the gap in his teeth, and jetting otu the hood.: 5 (4df+4=+, -, 0, +)
Apr 17 00:55:16 <Ragazzo> He drifts up, above the arc of the scythe, and then lands gracefully.
Apr 17 00:55:34 <Dexanote> "…" Shank steps back.
Apr 17 00:56:10 <Ragazzo> "Something wrong, Annoyed?" The flicker of lights from under the hood suggests another smile.
Apr 17 00:56:14 <Pemander> Enkal sits in the stands as a golden chalice. ~Woo. Go Hop.~
Apr 17 00:56:42 <Ragazzo> 4df+6 Perception maneuver, he watches Shank, waiting.

Apr 17 00:57:22 <Dexanote> "Yes."
Apr 17 00:59:11 <Dexanote> 4df+3 Intimidation || Shank suddenly looms, the lights in the arena going dim, his coat blowing in the Dead Winds, his pumpkin face glowing a bright red, leaves blowing through the stadium. "AND I SAID STOP."

Apr 17 00:59:34 <Pemander> ~Boo. Boo Shank.~
Apr 17 00:59:39 <Pemander> ~Stupid pumpkin guy.~
Apr 17 00:59:42 <Pemander> ~Get stuffed.~
Apr 17 01:00:12 <Ragazzo> 4df+6 Burning that earlier maneuver, Hop just seems fascinated. "My, aren't you intriguing…such ferocity…"
Apr 17 01:00:12 <CROM> Ragazzo: Burning that earlier maneuver, Hop just seems fascinated. "My, aren't you intriguing…such ferocity…": 7 (4df+6=+, -, +, 0)
Apr 17 01:02:13 <Ragazzo> Hop hums, peering at Shank under his hood. "So…what are you? I assumed you were a construct like myself…but on closer examination…that's not quite right, is it?"
Apr 17 01:02:36 <Ragazzo> 4df+4 Occult…that damn, glowy, benign flicker of a smile again.
Apr 17 01:02:37 <CROM> Ragazzo: Occult…that damn, glowy, benign flicker of a smile again.: 2 (4df+4=-, 0, 0, -)
Apr 17 01:04:14 <Dexanote> He's a construct. That's for sure.
Apr 17 01:05:16 * Pemander has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
Apr 17 01:05:42 <Ragazzo> Burning my last point to declare scene aspect 'Naked Jack O' LAnterns' Shank is discomfited and enraged by these pleasingly bright and warm candles. Hop is soothed, and given clarity of mind by them.

Apr 17 01:07:59 <Ragazzo> Shank's sstraws hands are so close…but so far.
Apr 17 01:08:28 <Dexanote> "YOU HORRID LITTLE THING."
Apr 17 01:10:40 <Ragazzo> "Have I offended you somehow? Oh dear. I now recall that 'construct' has fallen out of vogue as a term for our kind…ah…non-biological entity is the new moniker, isn't it? I am truly very sorry…"

Apr 17 01:15:28 <Ragazzo> Hop somersaults effortlessly over the swing, landing lithely behind Shank. "I think I have…"
Apr 17 01:17:10 <Ragazzo> 4df+4 "But I would love to know more. You seem quite agitated. Do you think that we could speak again at another time? I feel I might be causing you some anxiety in delaying you from your fatherly duties." Throughout the whole thing his candles never once flickered.

Apr 17 01:25:02 <Dexanote> that was my Defense vs your Persuasion. Im thinking that he's too pissed to give a shit
Apr 17 01:25:48 <Ragazzo> Hop shakes his head. "Oh my…I can tell your quite upset. Are you sure that we can't talk this out at a later date? Perhaps over drinks? Do you drink? I don't consume what is typically considered food, but I can't say I'm at all certain if a being like you would. I'd love to find otu though."
Apr 17 01:27:20 <Dexanote> "Whatever lemme go bring me girl to soccer. Unless ya wanna offer yor 'ead for tha ball." He shrinks a bit, the Dead Winds dying off (lol) and the lights returning to normal. Shank practically spits the words.

Apr 17 01:28:12 <Ragazzo> Hop steps to the side, allowing Shank passage.
Apr 17 01:28:26 <Dexanote> "Chainshank." He flows through, fading into shadow.
Apr 17 01:28:56 <Ragazzo> "How intriguing." Hop strolls down a cheery, well lit tunnel out of the arena.
