As an ardent fan of the web serial currently, and formerly, known as Worm, I would like to inquire if there perhaps might be room in this particular story for another character?
My current thoughts are centered on a vigilante that could probably be pushed to more legal ventures (PRT) or the-end-justifies-the-means type of violent caping that inevitably ends in tears, depending on what happens IC of course.
Welp. It's been fun. Fortunately, we both have suits of armor, maybe she can't break through? Fat chance, huh. Haha. Even in her power's armor, Knight will risk losing her eyes basically constantly, hahaha. ... Yikes.
@Sickle-cell When do we learn of who we're facing? Do we have a scout reporting from the scene or something?
On another note, I hope there's a moment's pause where I could have Rosaline check her email. Haha.
I assume she hasn't been able to make her report yet.
I need to thank you btw, @Banana. You've given me the chance to bring over one of my favourite canon Worm character to Boston. There are a few kicking around, but they all have very Boston twists. Except Kaze. Her twist is that she's actually here :-P
Well from what I understand she can only teleport through empty space, so @PlatinumSkink you should be able to counter her pretty effectively right? Like you said, we both have armor which should give us leeway, etc. I will habe to reread what I can about her.
Allow me to give a more realistic version of what will happen.
Version 1: Knight attempts boxing her in. Black Kaze notices, and teleports out of the confinement through whatever open space she can before Knight can close it. Black Kaze then teleports to slice at Knight. If Knight manages to put up a shield, then she'll just side-step it until she gets a good shot in. Then she has an unlimited amount of strikes to find a weak point in Knight's armor. Believe me, she'll find one.
Version 2: Knight goes armor mode and attempts a frontal attack. Sure, Knight is now immune to her attacks, woo. But, she has a single attack to take out Black Kaze in. She must hit this first charge, or it's all over. ... And Kaze sees the attack coming and teleports aside. Knight know has to open a hatch to regain her bearings to see outside, and Black Kaze makes her move. Once again, she has an unlimited amount of strikes to find the hole in the armor, Knight loses her eyes.
And that is under a span of less than five seconds, both scenarios, Knight VS Black Kaze. Now, I don't know if Ifrit will bring anything that changes this dynamic, but hah. And that's without counting Talion, who's probably someone original to this roleplay, or at the very least an original character currently under Sickle-Cell's ownership.
There are reasons why Black Kaze's considered one of the deadliest parahumans in Worm. ... I just wonder what the hell she's doing here, if we go by the assumption that it's actually her. Hah.
@PlatinumSkink I see what you mean, but there are some things to keep on mind. I will save most of the strategizing for IC, but one Black Kaze's biggest advantahes is that her ability allows her to be extremely mobile, she can engage and disengage any target at will. If a fight isn't in her favor, she simply escapes the situation and then returns at the opportune moment to take advantage of a weakness. In this fight, at least, that strength is largely limited by the nature of the engagement, the combatants are forced into a restricted space. It hasn't been made clear just how restricted, but she won't have the ability to disapear entirely.
That said, her mobility and striking power still makes her extremely deadly in this fight, but I think I have some ideas on how to take advantage of her limitations. First, we need to know who Talion is though.
@SkinnyTy I will say that I think the number of parahumans in canon who can handle her in a 1 on 1 fight in a boxed-in circumstance probably don't go above the single digit. When sneak-attacking? Sure, then the number becomes a lot higher, but as long as she knows of you she's supremely hard to beat. But, I do find a degree of hope in the fact that this is a 2 on 2. Meaning, it is theoretically possible one of us can strike her while her attention is on the other, heh.
@BananaYou definitely will. Will post next IC tomorrow with more details.
Also, what is the worse/best sign ever for a player? When the GM is screaming internally, desperate to spoil his plans that you are literally discussing and that are working perfectly, but at the same time doesn't want to because I wanna see your reaction to the bombshell =P
