Fire Emblem on Forums: Tiny Steps (IC)

After a few minutes of bouncing around with nothing to do, it was oddly exhilarating to finally be stuck into the action. With a loud spirited (and partially stress-relieving) yell of "Hyaaa!", the little mosquito barrels towards the loosely-clothed black ant with a charging headbutt. Well, there was more than one way to use her head, she mused to herself with a giggly "Oh, hi there!" as if she was entirely unaware that she was in the middle of a raging battlefield.

No doubt, it was a rather bemusing experience for the black ant fire mage to have a terrified adolescent moth running at him and flinging magic while also crying and professing her desire not to be there. But, still, even a bemusing situation where you're getting a bolt of deadly magic thrown at you is a situation where you're getting a bolt of deadly magic at you, so preparing for combat it was.

Thankfully for the ant, as it turns out, a terrified single-digit girl throwing a bolt is a girl who is not quite as precise in the way she throws that bolt, and the initiate was able to just duck behind that ever-useful pebble, peeking back up afterwards to see the hole it had eaten in the rock. Secluded wasn't quite lucky enough to dodge, but the bolt didn't do much but light her cloak on fire and give her some first-degree burns. Of course, being Secluded, it was unlikely she appreciated that.

 

The other one of the trio of digitling girls in the party (and the other one to actually do much in the way of direct fighting) came up next, with a lot more enthusiasm than her counterpart, and the ever-quick knife-wielding ant found herself the target of another attack. "Well, hello, there, hon." A sardonic laugh. "You sure you're in the right place?"

The specialist didn't dodge this one, though. Sting's cranium didn't make direct contact, with the specialist instinctively backpedaling away, but the rapier stab that followed did very much, sticking the ant rather solidly - Sting was very much capable of making powerful strikes indeed, it seemed. For a moment it didn't seem like that was enough, but the ant stumbled backwards, and groaned, grabbing her abdomen. "Guess so, huh?" Then she fell.

 

Black Ant Specialist A dies!

 

The Fire Initiate that had managed to dodge Secluded-from-Illumination's attack (and was the indirect cause, now, of her loud panic) wasn't actually out of the more metaphorical fire yet. He had yet another assailant - this one was Pinecone, and now he had a rod of sharpened, curved wood hurtling his way as hard as Pinecone could throw it. "Oh, come on!"

Luckily for the ant, when Pinecone had cocked his arm back for a javelin throw that would probably have been accurate, his attention had been stolen for a moment by the fact that Adept Gloom was staring exhausted, dark-circled DAGGERS at one of the bugs he was guarding (Ebon)! The delay was split-second, but long enough for the Fire Initiate to terrifiedly dive behind another side of the pebble, javelin slapping against the sidewalk after missing him by a hair. The literal return fire did hit, and burned some, but Pinecone was still up and presumably still resolute.

Oh, right, She'd forgotten about the sword in her hands. The rapier that was very capable of stabbing strangers in the gut and making them fall down. Oh, well. Now, uhhh, where was she? Perhaps it was just the loosely dressed ant's question but maybe she wasn't in the right place. Better ask to make sure. As Sting bounced for a spot for a few moments (and try to get her brain working), she heard a high-pitched flute sound behind her. Right on time. Who better than him? "Oh, hi, Bendy!" she greeted cheerily, turning around to face the black ant. "Um, where are we a-whaooo-whoops!" 

 

That last cry came from not watching her feet and somehow, tripping over the fallen specialist's body, sending the little mosquito tumbling head over heels and crashing right into the tablet-wielding ant behind her. Well, there's something to be said about watching your step.

"What do you mean where ar- oh- uh- there she goes." He watched the precipitous tumble of the mosquito girl and winced. "Yeahhhhh... been there. Mostly."

 

Recruit Bend has refreshed Sting?

 

It was questionable to what extent Sting essentially flinging herself entirely headlong into the officer of this little squad of ants actually counted as an attack, even with Sting's sword included in the mix of flailing limbs and antenna. But that was sure what she was doing, and it drew a frankly indignant squawk from Gloom as the mosquito barreled right into her.

The "combat" that followed was a ridiculous, clumsy thing. Sting's sword entirely accidentally ripped across Gloom's abdomen, drawing a shriek, Gloom wildly flung motes of magic at Sting that ate deeply into her flesh and blinded her a little, and then Sting's careening body slammed her facefirst into Gloom. The end result was this: both bugs were wounded, Gloom was flat on the ground with her tablet several inches away and with Sting right on top of her, and a little carved stone ring had somehow ended up around one of Sting's antenna.

 

Adept Gloom is defeated!

"This is the dumbest thing that has ever happened."

 

TURN 6 ~ ENEMY PHASE

 

The bizarre but thorough defeat of Gloom brought a few different reactions from the various ants on the scene.

 

The mage immediately turned and began hauling ass as fast as he could, abandoning his position the instant Gloom was down.

"That is about as much of this as I am willing to stomach!"

74mIIX6.png

"Get back here, asshole!"

"I know what I said earlier, but I am not going to stick around when you are down and my frontliner just bailed!"

74mIIX6.png

"Damn it!"

 

The snipers, however...

 "Mmm... hey dude, I'm going to fight it out. You can do whatever you want I guess, but want to join me? For the boss."

"... ... ...yeah."

 

And they each took positions around a pebble, the chattier sniper standing behind the one now getting surrounded and the silent sniper standing just beside the further one.

 

The chatty sniper raised his longbow, ultimately simply sighing and choosing to ignore his imminent doom on either side. "Well, Mr. southern ant guy, guess you're the only one who isn't going to immediately shoot me back."

"Wow, I'm just honored."

Hit: 93-15-22=56!

Hit roll: 53, hit!

Crit: 2-6=-4, no crit chance.

Damage: 11-6=5!

 

The arrow slammed into Bend's chestplate with a solid thunk and managed to penetrate - and, to be fair, it was a solid hit, causing Bend to step back a bit and grit his teeth in pain. But it was nowhere near powerful enough, despite the power of the arrow, to bring him down.

gcNA68d.png

"Here's a tip: you're an asshole. That's the tip. Fuck you."

 

The other sniper instead lined up at who probably constituted the obvious target, not really catching the significance of Pinecone's stance. But that significance was impressed on him when what should have been an arrow aimed right at Ebon's bird instead found itself an arrow aimed at a wall of bee and wood.

What Pinecone experienced was almost exactly what Bend did - the powerfully launched arrow slammed into one of his wooden shoulderplates and managed a penetration, which did hurt, but both Pinecone and his armor were made of tough enough stuff that Pinecone still wasn't likely going down any time soon.

 

Meanwhile, across the next crack in the sidewalk...

"Uh, Sergeant, sir, do we go help...? They're... really getting torn apart out there."

Despite his previous failure, Pinecone was extremely persistent in charging after the one he marked for death.

 

Pinecone to I12, Guard everyone adjacent, javelin into Fire Initiate B's face

The ant fire mage's loudly declared, hasty attempt to flee found itself almost certainly being too little, too late, as he was promptly run down by a very unhappy, very large bee holding a spear. "Hold on now, is there a need to be so relentless-Pinecone wasn't really listening. He's already made his decisions, and the javelin clutched in his hand was stabbed towards the mage without hesitation.

The poor ant didn't even stand a chance. Although he made a very spirited attempt at avoiding Pinecone's thrust, Stardust's presence behind Pinecone seemed to give the motivation needed for the bee to continue surging towards his target - and that extra momentum ensured the javelin impaled the ant mage with ease, stabbing well into him and leaving him quite deceased.

Diligence also ended up seeking a bit of revenge - albeit a bit more direct, against one of the snipers who had been sticking her with all of those arrows. She rushed in directly into close range with the archer she'd targeted for her wrath, taking advantage of the clumsiness of his longbow to keep any further arrows away from her frankly rather squishy body - and summoned up fire in her hand, and -

-pretty much obliterated the unfortunate archer in the space of a couple of seconds, bringing him from totally unharmed to dead almost isntantly. There was very little that he could do about it; despite her bookish origins, Diligence was fast, and the two surges of magic she brought forth from her tablet splashed over the black ant one after the other, rather efficiently scorching the sniper.

...all of this relentless devastation meant that Sting's charge was brought up rather short, with no more enemies at that particular destination to even fight.

As the assistant's wounds were tended to by Brilliant Deduction, the pain did not subside much. Life-Recorder knew that most weapon-ready poisons didn't last long, even untreated, but it was still a bit much.

"Mmhmm, well, I am pretty useful~ But, to be fair, so are you! Honestly, you were a really lucky find."

 

The relentless assault against archerkind continued as Soggy did one of the things that Soggy did best - keep charging headlong into combat scenarios like an adrenaline-fueled thrown brick. A little bit of poison certainly didn't stop him from rapidly circling behind the ant sniper's position and whirling an axe in his direction.

The hatchet Soggyshanks held whirled into the hapless sniper's side and bit deep - but it didn't quite bite deep enough to finish the job. After all, the archer was using the boulder he was hiding behind to make the strike a bit awkward, the archer had a bit of armor... and, when you got down to it, Soggyshanks was in his best when he stood out. With a very noisy and screamy bee directly behind him, perhaps it was hard to. (Or maybe it was just hard to focus, that was believable too.)

 

Following Soggyshanks up was someone, on the other hand, who was not typically in the habit of focusing, albeit somebody who also did have a habit for standing out - just one that was maybe not quite intentional. She, for once, didn't barrel in at high speed - all she had to do was thrust forwards.

...or, well, she had to thrust forward twice. With a ferocious, desperate burst of energy, the archer managed to jerk away by a micrometer, Sting's rapier grazing by his face and touching it without actually harming him. Unfortunately for him, though, Sting was also full of desperate energy herself, and her arm flashed back and forth in a lightning motion that soon left the ant done for.

Brilliant practically (albeit not quite literally) danced up to Diligence and pulled out her staff as she got near the wounded red ant (the miniscule bug on her shoulder doing the same).

Meanwhile, Bend came up behind Soggy with a toooooot and then a gentle kind-of-push to the back.

"Aaaalright, bud, go for it. Pretty sure you're up near the top of most terrifying bugs here to have charging at you, so let's have at it."

Recruit Bend refreshes Soggyshanks!

 

TURN 7 ~ ENEMY PHASE

There was a sudden, rather ferocious grunt from the leader of the whole little ant operation, followed by a bellow at odds with the impassive but hardened words he'd had as he watched Gloom's squad be torn apart - but perhaps not too at odds with his ambush in the first place.

"OKAY, NOW! NOW, NOW, NOW, GO, GO, GO! ENGAGE AS FAST AS POSSIBLE! The fuckers are WAY too spread out vertically too have a damned chance of hitting us all at once, so let's hit THEM instead as quick as we can!"

 

Somewhat awkwardly, this... wasn't actually very quick.

 

TURN 8 ~ PLAYER PHASE

Soggyshanks: 3 //I just forgot to process this earlier apparently, so I guess Soggy concentrated-power-of-will'd it out a turn

Map Notes

Spoiler

Objective: Rout the enemy!

 

Road and sidewalk tiles usually just count as plains for the purpose of movement, including the lines between panels of the sidewalk.

However, cracks in the sidewalk function as Cliffs and are impassable! Pebbles on the sidewalk function as Pillars.

Moving on or off the sidewalk costs 2 MOV. Attacks from the sidewalk to off of the sidewalk effectively have WTA, and attacks off of the sidewalk to on the sidewalk effectively have WTD! This stacks with actual WTA and WTD.

"So much for holding their position, huh?" Ebon said under his breath. It wasn't exactly a problem, though, seeing as one of their slower cohorts was easily still in range of Blackwing's talons. "Turning your back on me is one of the biggest mistakes you can make, you know." he muttered as he drove his lance into the shaman.

Before Mercy moves on, he tosses a small bundle towards the downed Gloom. Inside was a some bandages and an allotment of healing poultice. It was a system that he'd begun after noticing how often injuries that were judged as not dire enough to treat first would often turn into life threatening ones if not being outright casualties, so he'd package up small kits to allow those better off to stave off death long enough for proper care to be administered.

 

Mercy then heads to I12 and heals Pinecone.
