Duel: A Song Of Gold and Madness

Recommended Posts

Batosu exits the inn, head held high, and finds Mansu nearby. “Heaven will recoil at your arrival, Mansu.”

 

His hand falls to his hilt.

 

@MadCast: Munsa As your clan currently has the lead, you are the Lead Duelist in this clan leader duel.

Mansu began clanging the flat of his cleaver-like blade against a sparklight pole.   

"Let us summon an audience, that all might see your fecklessness on display."

Tension: 3 @ Town

Tension: 3

Batosu chooses starting wind Breezy and starting terrain Wet.

 

Batosu impassively appraises the dirty puddle that Mansu stands within. As the light breeze picks at his clothing, he joins the madman.

”An audience would be welcomed. There is still time for you to end this foolishness. You need only do what comes natural to the Touten. Yield.”

Reveal: +1Gusty/-1Calm

Tension:  5
Situation: Town, Breezy, Wet
Move: Improve
Roll: 11

Improvements: Batosu must reveal, Tension to 6, give one setback.

Mansu takes a ponderous step to the side.

"The Hokuten I can at least understand.  Adhering is helpful to the sheltered mind.  Wealth, however, is a poor faith.  POOR FO-"

Mansu rolled with the anger.  The spasms were uncontrollable, and as maliciously random as balanced dice.  An impulse to strike had to be turned to a frenzy of motion.  His feet worked to cover the wild flailing of his arms, and in Batosu's face he saw the truth of his foe.

Setback: Mansu takes 1 future wound.

 

Tension: 6

Situation: Town, Breezy, Wet

Move: Prepare

Roll: 8

Increase the tension by 1. Batosu may Strike! or Forfeit as his next move.

 

In the face of Mansu's momentary loss of control, Batosu's mind is made up. One cannot shame a rabid dog. The pristine blade sings as it is leaps free of its scabbard.

 

Tension is now: 7

Tension: 7
Situation: Town, Breezy, Wet, 1 Future Wound (Mansu)
Move: Improve
Roll: 6

Mansu changes the wind (Breezy to Gusty), Batosu deals two setbacks.

"Yes.  Yes.  YES."

The wicked edge of his blade scored the wet cobbles.  Lightning briefly illuminated the area a putrescent purple, and the rain began to fall.

"Our blood shall spill and seep into the bricks.  The rats below will grow strong, even if we both fall.  Will you abandon our duty to them?"

Wind changes from Breezy to Gusty

Setbacks: Terrain to Flat. 1 future wound to Mansu.

Tension: 7

Situation: Flat, Gusty

Move: Strike!

Roll: 9

 

Batosu hesitated. This man was possessed. Not villain, but victim.

He moved warily out of the puddle onto the brick path, katana poised to strike. The weapon flashed as the Oni charged, slicing deep but avoiding vital areas. 

“Use the pain to cleanse yourself, Mansu-San.”

 

Mansu is wounded.
