  1. <Barkeep> "Are you sure it has to be knives?"
  2. <Barkeep> "After all... I could use my powers to fight too."
  3. <Raven> "Well...I didn't know how open you'd be to that considering the risks, I don't know how subtle it is. But I also thought even if you wern't that great at actually throwing one, you could...help guide it?"
  4. <Barkeep> "I don't think I could really move it fast enough to be dangerous."
  5. <Barkeep> "But... come on, I think I can figure out how to fight without you teaching me." :B
  6. <Barkeep> "In fact..."
  7. <Barkeep> "How about a little bet."
  8. <Raven> She fidgets a bit. "I dunno I...didn't know what you had in mind when you said you'd want to help me with things. What's this you wanna bet on?"
  9. <Barkeep> "A little fight."
  10. <Barkeep> "If I can show you that I can be pretty dangerous in a fight with a throwing weapon, or if I beat you, you'll have to do something for me."
  11. <Barkeep> "If you utterly beat me into the ground, I'll do something for you."
  12. <Raven> "A wah..? Well...my big concern was more...I don't know what it's like when you try to...hurt someone with a gift like yours. How obvious it'd be, but.." She looks down and sighs.
  13. <Barkeep> "You aren't scared that I'll beat you with no training, are you?"
  14. <Raven> "No, it's not that. I just...don't want to hurt you, even if I'm not using an actual knife. Are you sure you wanna do this?"
  15. <Barkeep> "Wait till you here what the bet is."
  16. <Barkeep> "Although... I'd prefer it if you didn't use your armor... I mean it's not like any bandits I know will have that kind of high quality armor."
  17. <Raven> She crosses her arms. "I don't have it with me anyway, but okay. I'm listening."
  18. <Barkeep> "Well... if you're satisfied with my performance... I want you to wear the costume while we fool around at your place a bit."
  19. <Raven> "...I figured it'd be something like that," she laughs uneasily.
  20. <Barkeep> "Uh, maybe I shouldn't tell you what I was thinking of if I beat you then..."
  21. <Raven> She takes a deep breath. "...Okay, fine. If this is what you want. Just let me find something a more...blunt than a combat knife first," she looks around a bit (Actually where did you even intend they were?)
  22. <Barkeep> (probably... upstairs or something?)
  23. <Raven> (okay) She comes back with a heavy looking wooden, bristled haircomb. "I guess this'll do."
  24.  Barkeep procures a sling with some heavy stones. "Maybe we should do this over near your place? I don't think I'd really want anyone watching." :/
  25. <Raven> Her eye twitches a bit as she sees the sling and stones. Not exactly what she expected. "Huh? Oh, yeah, we could." (Or ruin things in the other channel when they hear them 'fighting' upstairs :3c)
  26. <Raven> Once they get back to the stupid little shack, she bolts the door behind them, then turns around, holding the...little brush out like a small club. "Okay...you sure about this?"
  27. <Barkeep> "Oh, really sure."
  28. <Barkeep> "Especially if I can beat you."
  29. <Raven> She looks to the guard animals watching curiously, and takes a deep breath before returning them to their apricorn balls first. "They'd...probably have issue with this." After she puts those down, she turns back to Claud. "Well...here's to a healthy, normal relationship," and she jumps forward.

  83.  Barkeep goes down ; ;
  84. <Barkeep> (I should have spent that PC earlier)
  85. <Raven> "...Oh come on I told you this wasn't a good idea." :<
  86. <Raven> She puts the brush down.
  87.  Barkeep probably comes to after a while.
  88. <Barkeep> (you know I just realized)
  89. <Barkeep> (master knife weilder is broken as hell now that the damage dice is the same)
  90. <Raven> (yeah it was sorta intended for when small blades SUCKED)
  91. <Raven> (however it's at the same time not much different than what martial artists get, it just should be split into more feats or something)
  92. <Barkeep> (it stacks too though...)
  93. <Raven> (true :B)
  94. <Barkeep> (if you took MA as well you'd get double cha and double dex mods.)
  95. <Barkeep> "Ow..."
  96. <Raven> She drags him up onto the bed and looks over the wounds. "Uh..."
  97. <Barkeep> (how much would you be doing without it)
  98. <Raven> "I'm sorry" ; ;
  99. <Barkeep> "It's okay..."
  100. <Raven> (1d10+20)
  101. <Barkeep> "I got a bit too eager."
  102. <Barkeep> (that'd be 44 less damage... I would have had enough for at least 1 more hit. :<)
  103. <Raven> "You just gotta work on your aiming, you got the right idea though. I just...used knives as an example instead of rocks."
  104.  Barkeep nods.
  105. <Barkeep> "Well you're just too nimble I guess..."
  106. <Barkeep> "Anyway I think this means I lose."
  107. <Barkeep> "So... I have to do what you want."
  108. <Raven> She thinks for a bit.
  109. <Raven> Then she gets a rather silly idea. "Well guess now it's my turn to use this card. That and it feels wrong for me to gloat about this when it was meant for you, I'll do what you want."
  110.  Barkeep grins, "Come on, really? You could make me do anything."
  111. <Barkeep> "I'm always manipulating people. Maybe it's my turn to be manipulated." :P
  112. <Raven> "You just convinced me to beat you senseless with a wooden brush. I know these those things hurt like hell to get clobbered with, it's a big friggen block of wood!" She puffs her cheeks out with annoyance. "You -really- want me to think of something? Fine." So she thinks...
  113. <Raven> "First off, you're going to tell me what you DID have in mind if you won. And then I'll think of something from there."
  114. <Barkeep> "W-Well uh..."
  115. <Barkeep> "I was thinking maybe you could..."
  116. <Barkeep> "I mean I don't think I'd want to... but if it was... uh..."
  117. <Barkeep> "Just..."
  118. <Raven> "Yes..?" She narrows her eyes with annoyance.
  119. <Raven> "I want to hear you say it."
  120.  Barkeep looks around and leans in to whisper into her ear quietly.
  121.  Barkeep immediately looks away and avoids eye contact like it will kill him
  122.  Barkeep thinks it really might.
  123.  Raven quickly realizes this was a horrible idea, and goes completely flush red, angry act completely gone. "U-um-a"
  124. <Barkeep> "I-I told you I was reconsidering it... y-you're the one who asked!"
  125. <Raven> She tries to recollect herself. It sorta works. "I...I..."
  126. <Barkeep> "I-I I mean what did you expect if I was trying that hard not to say it?"
  127. <Barkeep> "N-not that uh, that would uh, be something you should expect because that would be weird. Or something."
  128. <Raven> "I don't know what I was thinking that caught me off guard ! Well, okay, I had an ideabut-"
  129. <Barkeep> "W-Well what was your idea then!"
  130. <Barkeep> "You made me say it, it's only fair!"
  131. <Raven> She turns around before continueing cause this is entirely not how she expected things to go. "I...had plans for that...stuff, but it was sorta more conveluted and not as direct and -"
  132. <Barkeep> "Conveluted? Huh? I... I don't understand."
  133. <Raven> She slows down a bit, "I was going to try to get you drunk, and myself as well, and...just see what happened from there - okay maybe it wasn't that conveluted but it sounded like a good idea."
  134. <Raven> "and it may or may not have been on top of Mount Amaranth."
  135. <Barkeep> "That... sounds like it would have been fun."
  136. <Barkeep> "Though I guess I kind of ruined your surprise now." :<
  137. <Barkeep> "I'm sorry."
  138. <Raven> She sighs as she turns back around. "And...now I don't know what to do."
  139.  Barkeep shuffles his feet. "I think I might try going to the lake. Poke old pincher for a bit."
  140. <Raven> She pushes him back down on the bed. "Nuh uh. You're staying here just..." She puckers her lips. "You got that lucky coin on you?"
  141.  Barkeep pulls it out. "I do."
  142. <Raven> She snatches it up. "Heads, we do this your way, andthe dress will be involved. Tails, I've got a few jars of moonshine stashed away, we'll do things my way." She says, turning beat red, "Okay?"
  143.  Barkeep takes a gulp
  144. <Barkeep> "O-okay."
  145. <Barkeep> 1d2 TOSS OF FATE
  146. <DiceMaid-9001> Barkeep, TOSS OF FATE: 1 [1d2=1]
  147. <Raven> (ogod ahahahah)
  148. <Barkeep> :o
  149. <Raven> "..."
  150. <Barkeep> "Well..."
  151. <Barkeep> "I don't exactly approve of moonshine. But... I do have something."
  152. <Barkeep> "And if this isn't a time for it, I don't know what is."
  153.  Barkeep takes out a small vial of something gold and bubbly.
  154. <Raven> "...Is that...what I think it is?"
  155.  Barkeep nods. "Mac's special recipie. Liquid Courage."
  156. <Raven> She gulps. "How appropriately named. I think we're gonna need that, yeah."
  157.  Barkeep nods. "It's a bit strong... so I'll split it with you."
  158. <Raven> She takes her swig and...
  159. <Raven> 1d100
  160. <DiceMaid-9001> Raven, 1d100: 48 [1d100=48]
  161.  Barkeep takes his swig and...
  162.  Barkeep lets out a sharp whistle
  163. <Barkeep> "Wowza."
  164. <Barkeep> "This stuff is GOOD."
  165. <Raven> 1d100 that is so uncommital, dicemaid
  166. <DiceMaid-9001> Raven, that is so uncommital, dicemaid: 41 [1d100=41]
  167. <Barkeep> (it's on the low side)
  168. <Raven> (oh to hell with it)
  169. <Raven> She suddenly feels a lot less...rigid about this. "This is...woah..."
  170.  Barkeep gives a silly grin, "I know, right?"
  171. <Barkeep> "Funny, never heard of a drink sobering someone up."
  172. <Barkeep> "But I guess we were being a bit silly earlier. We're both adults, right?"
  173. <Raven> "Yeah, well, I just envisioned this happening a bit...differently," she says.
  174. <Barkeep> "Eh, nobody's perfect."
  175. <Barkeep> "Though honestly, you're the best thing that's ever happened to me, Raven."
  176. <Raven> She crawls onto the bed, and on top of him. "And you to me, but I think that's just about to be eclisped; 'my way' involves a bit more than you had in mind." She gives a wide, toothy grin. Slightly impish.
  177.  Barkeep blushes a little bit, possibly from all the drinking, but he's definitely happy as a clamperl.
  178. <Raven> (>a clamperl)
