« on: July 19, 2015, 12:24:18 AM »

This sparring match has been created as an example of player vs player combat in a TOR RPG setting. In this we have used a combination of delegating some of the opponent's actions while still leaving it open enough for the opponent player to respond as they want. None of this fight was planned out or talked about between Krace and myself, each post is simply a response to the other's.

Enjoy, and if you have any questions please feel free to ask in the TOR OOC training discussion thread.

~Ikis stepped up, facing Shayla and drew one of his sabers.~

"Ready now?"

~She nodded and he activated the saber, the yellow blade springing to life and then gave a Makashi salute.  He dropped back into a defensive stance, then raised a hand to motion her forward before taking a two-handed grip on his saber.~

"Come then."

~Shayla charged in with a strike and his saber came up to deflect it.  His eyes watched every motion she made, reading her muscle movements before the swing hardly even started.  Each time his blade moved into position and deflected her strikes with precision, not wasting any energy with excessive movement.~

Shayla returned Ikis's Makashi salute with one of her own, then adopted an offensive position. The two had decided to do more realistic fighting today so the large Twi'lek was in full armour. It made him look even more intimidating to the small woman, however she was used to being one of the smallest around and put that aside. She reached into the Force, allowing it to flow through her body to help guide and strengthen her movements. As per usual a few rocks and leaves orbited around her ankles, the currents of the Force helping to keep her calm and centred, but for the time being she left her offensive whirlwind of objects be. The powerful telekinetic could call it up at a moment's notice if she needed it.

At his beckon she charged in with a two handed strike, her silvery blue blade clashing with Ikis's yellow blade. She struck again, darting in and out and circling him, attempting to use her speed and agility to overcome the larger heavier Twi'lek. Each time he blocked her with ease as she knew he would. Her own movements were kept minimal as well, not bothering to waste excess energy with fancy flourishes. Ikis suddenly released a flurry of attacks on her. Shayla was driven backwards but managed to block every strike, the sound of their blades humming and crackling ringing through the training grounds and the smell of ozone filling the air. She stepped backwards out of the way as the yellow blade sang past and saw an opening. Using a burst of Force assisted speed she closed the gap and aimed a strike at his now unprotected left leg, ever wary of one of his other sabers suddenly springing into life.

~Ikis kept up with Shayla as she struck out against him over and over.  When he created an opening he went on the offensive, driving her back again and again.  She did a good job blocking and decided to see if she'd take advantage of an opening.  Lashing out he left himself partly open for a return attack to see how well she would take advantage of it.  Shayla came in strong, determined to hit the unprotected spot.  With a burst of speed he side-stepped and spun out of the way of the strike and his second saber came out, both of them arcing towards her back.  Seeming to sense the attack she managed to spin around and block both strikes, though she had to retreat a few steps with the force of both blows.~

"Very good, you're learning."

~He pushed off her saber and changed tactics, the twin blades twirling all around in a distracting manner as he would occasionally strike at her.~

The whirling blades could be very off putting. Shayla had learnt that the hard way the first time he had used that trick on her, resulting in many bruises and stings as she was distracted by the spinning light. This time however she tried to focus on the subtle movements that would indicate a strike and what she could feel through the Force, as Ikis has taught her. She managed to block or step out of the way of all the stikes, but if he suddenly rushed her she would be very hard pressed to defend against it. Time for her to change her own tactics.

In between his strikes she made some of own, unable to get past the blades. Without warning after a strike she sent a wave of the Force at him. He weathered it, being pushed back two steps with his rhythm barely broken. It gave her the room she needed to call up her whirlwind, rocks and twigs of all sizes springing up at her summons. Instead of using the currents like she normally did she took direct control of most of them, spinning them around her at speed. If Ikis tried to step in close enough to attack her he would also have to contend with being battered by the objects. While it took a little more concentration it was a technique she had been practicing to use in battle and gave her half a chance to level the playing field. She stepped back in with renewed saber strikes while also sending small rocks flying at the Twi'lek. There was a reason he was armoured after all.

~Ikis was impressed with Shayla's improvement in her ability to read his movements to figure when a strike was coming.  Granted he was also not coming on as hard as he could.  Though this sign of improvement meant that the next time he would have to turn things up a notch.  Before he could rush her to see if she could adapt further, she struck out at him with the Force.  He was able to push out enough of his own that deflected most of it and he only lost a little footing.  She did not hesitate though to take advantage of the lack of pressure from him and his blades.  Her whirlwind sprung to life and started striking out at him in little bits as he came close again.  Almost all of the pieces clattered against his armor with little effect other than he could feel them hitting the armor.~

"Good trick, though you're going to need more than that."

~He pressed one of his blades up tight against hers and then used his size and strength to push her backwards.  As she recoiled a few steps, he sent out a Force Wave all around him and blew away all the little debris in the ring for a dozen meters.  Momentarily distracted by being stripped of her spinning shield he struck in again hard, but went high and low, forcing her to decide where to block.  If she didn't hesitate she could probably block high and pivot low to avoid the worst of the blow.~

Shayla couldn't move quick enough after being hit by the small Force wave then having Ikis immediately strike at her. She couldn't hope to block both. Luckily her instincts moved quicker than her body, a lump of dirt and rock rising from the ground to try and stop the low strike while her saber blocked the high. The lower saber was only slowed, but it was enough that she managed to avoid the worst of the blow and twisted out of the way, the tip of the blade scraping her thigh. Stinging pain spread across the contact point but she automatically used the Force to dull and heal it. The power levels of the lightsabers had been turned down enough so that they wouldn't wound, but left above the minimum so that they would be felt.

She didn't get much of a chance to recover however, as Ikis came in again with more attacks that pushed her back harder and she struggled to keep up with. In desperation she jumped backwards and to the side, calling up a larger whirlwind and reaching out to lift up larger rocks, between fist and head sized. She sent a concentrated wave of energy to try and throw him backwards, following it up immediately by hurtling the larger rocks at him.

~Ikis smiled a little when Shayla improvised with a clod of dirt to block his low strike.  It slowed his strike, but didn't stop it as he felt it make contact and graze her.  He gave her no chance to recover though.  He was trying to get her used to fighting for her life, as a true lightsaber fight would be.  As the pace of his attacks quickened, he could tell she began to struggle to keep up a defense.  Even a skilled Soresu user could have trouble against an opponent with two weapons that knew how to press an advantage.~

~In a move to gain more space, she flipped away and started to barrage him with the Force.  The wave he once again mostly deflected with one of his own, only being staggered a few steps.  However when the first fist sized rock flew by his head, he knew she's stepped up her response.  He started to dart all over the place, a blur of a moving target.  Normally his next move would be to close the gap and strike the opponent that was using the Force like she was, but he didn't want to hurt her too bad.  Deciding to give her a little more space, he backed up a good bit and put some distance between them.  He was curious what she would do next now that she had some breathing room.~

Shayla was partly thankful for the breathing space Ikis gave her, partly frustrated at it. In a real battle the enemy wouldn't do that. She raised the whirlwind larger, giving herself more ammunition to use against her opponent while she got a moment's respite. In a real battle there were more offensive Force powers she could use, but they were potentially too dangerous in practice against a real being. In the end she settled for a hybrid combination. With a forwards push of her hand several large rocks were thrown at Ikis, then the whirlwind followed to surround the Twi’lek. In a real fight she could use it to constantly hurtle objects inwards, wearing her opponent down with a battering onslaught of debris that would be continually scooped up and rethrown. Today she kept the bulk of the whirlwind at his torso height and lower so she wouldn't injure his unarmoured head and lekku, with just a storm of smaller stuff above that and started pegging objects inwards at his body and legs.

Shayla kept her field of telekinetic control wide, expecting that he would throw out a Force wave to dissipate the storm. True to form he did, and she was able to immediately catch the objects and send them rushing back in towards him again, pulling up more debris from the surrounding environment as she did. With a burst of speed she followed the objects back in, coming at him with an overhead strike. He blocked it but she kept up the attack, utilising the more offensive Ataru strikes and her levitation ability to use the air as a stepping stone so that her strikes wouldn't always be coming from her usual low height.

~Ikis deflected, sliced, or dodged around the bigger items as best he could until Shayla wrapped him up in a whirlwind.  Now the whirlwind was tossing the bigger fist sized objects around inside of it and at him.  Some of the strikes stung, others glanced off the armor.  Jedi armor was high caliber stuff and made to take a beating, aside from a direct lightsaber strike or heavy blaster bolt.  The rocks stung because of the flat impact they made against the armor, though thankfully there was padding beneath.~

~To rid himself of the whirlwind and the rocks he used another wave, but she pulled it all back in again quickly and then started to attack him with jumping attacks.  After defecting a several blows, but still taking hits from the whirlwind, he decided to end the battle decisively.  In between one of her attacks he deactivated one of his sabers and put it away.  With one hand free he started to gather energy.  Not wanting to hurt her he only gathered a little before he set off a Repulse, pushing her and everything around him away in all directions.  Jumping into the air after her he hit her with a Push to keep her off balance and when they came down both his sabers were out, one blade pushing hers aside, the other was horizontal in a mock strike that stopped a scant breath from her neck.~

"Checkmate."

Shayla could sense Ikis was planning something when he put one lightsaber away, but she wasn't prepared for what hit her. The Repulse had barely been built up, barely more than a strong Force Wave and she had thrown up somewhat of a defence. It still sent her flying backwards however, knocking the breath from her and leaving her feeling bruised as well as breaking her concentration. She managed to land on her feet but before she could attempt to regain control over the thrown objects a second, smaller push of the Force sent her stumbling backwards. She brought up her lightsaber as Ikis came leaping at her but it was too late. He batted it aside, the second blade held barely off her skin. The blade was humming loudly near her ear and she could feel the energy off it making her hairs stand.

The combination of her energetic moves beforehand, the Force knocking the air from her and the blade being held to her neck had her breathing heavily, and trying not to move lest the blade touched her which was difficult since she was leant back awkwardly. Her eyes were locked with the Twi’lek's. She could potentially use her telekinesis to take control of both lightsabers and physically lift Ikis away but it would be a battle of wills. In any case, in a real battle she would be dead. She deactivated her blade and dropped the hilt down, waiting until Ikis deactivated both of his before taking a step back and clutching at her chest.

"Well done Master" she breathed heavily, putting the lightsaber back on her belt and channelling the Force through her body to heal the aches. "I hope I didn't hurt you with those rocks."

~When Shayla deactivated her weapon, Ikis deactivated his and hooked them back to his belt, giving her an encouraging smile as she congratulated him.~

"You did well too Shayla.  Your anticipation and improvisation is getting better all the time."

~He shook his head as she asked about hurting him.~

"No, I'm quite alright.  The bigger ones stung some, but the Jedi crafters certainly know what they're doing when they make a set of armor.  Hopefully I didn't knock you around too badly either."

~Seeming to catch her breath after a little bit she shook her head.~
