But also being merciful - Dylan will begin by fighting defensively.
(Cursed dice roller! )
(If I have this right)
Dylan shouts ‘Come to your senses, Sir Idres’
d20: 2 vs Sword 15 -5 for failing passion +10 for fighting defensively (20)
(Note for the future - a successful passion roll will only give inspiration to a single skill. It is probably worth being explicitly clear which skill will be elevated when making the passion roll. The disheartened effect for failing a passion test applies to all rolls.)
Thanks Hover @Scribbs.
Idres skill for increase was Sword. Talking of which…
Sir Idres Sword 14 +10 passion -5 (For something.)
To be incredibly British.
Sword crit for
5d6: 3 + 6 + 2 + 3 + 1 = 15 x2
Idres slashes you a wicked blow for…
30 -10 armour -6 shield 14hp.
Roll against Dex please that’s a knockdown roll.
(Didn’t Sir Idres fail his passion? 16 vs 13 (Love Rowena)
Unfortunately not. His passion is 16, he rolled a 13.
d20: 2 vs Dex 10
Dylan is shaken by the passionate attack of Sir Idres and is trying to hang on. The gravity of the situation taking hold. Him, a squire, taking on a knight - in his own manor.
(To continue to derail, the failed passion roll means Dylan also loses 1 point in Hospitality as well.)
The blow cuts deep, but even as it is made you see your opponents face redden and his breathing labour. Sir Idres seems exhausted, as if the blind love he has harboured secretly for Rowenna was all that was fuelling him.
And then your mind flicks back.
Sir Idres staring into nothing, his dinner untouched.
Sol deriding the young knight for always wearing his armour.
The armour you have seen him wearing constantly for days.
How is he even still standing?
To your left a sword is unsheathed and Feld is beside you.
“I am here at your side Dylan.”
“Have at him, Feld!”
Dylan will try to coordinate his attack with Feld, hoping that Sol is hearing the commotion. He feels that all help will be needed to subdue Sir Idres.
d20: 4 vs Sword (15 -5 failed passion) 10
Feld vs sword 2
Sir Idres splits his attack evenly.
Sword 14 +10 passion -7 constantly increased fatigue = 17
Feld 9 vs failure
Dylan 8 vs success
Sir Idres slashes again at the hopeless swordsman Feld for
5d6: 1 + 4 + 3 + 3 + 2 = 13 damage, leaving him wide open to Dylan.
Roll your damage!
