Droplets drip, lumbering down the gargantuan forestry until the drip drops back down. Among the trees are humanoid shapes, cracking open the ripe green berries, the people sing songs of prayer and settle disputes, the harvest was good this year. Well at least good enough to forget their troubles for months.At least they would be happy, if it were not for that burning star approaching the world, big stars have hit the world before. They don’t know why they are afraid of this one, what it is is just another star, when it hits the ocean it will cool down into a rock, and then they will collect the rock and make incredible new things. The eastern orchard made blades sharper than any talon, the snowy forests made airsuits to dive deeper and from the sunken woods came wings of metal, faster than any wing. This one however wouldn’t be turned into a revolutionary new wing, or blade, or suit.For destruction was certain to be left in its wake, the trees as of late have begun toppling over. This is evident to be the distress of their god Ceda Ba, it is hardly normal for a tree to fall down. The trees rise from the depths of the ocean and provide to the world great new life above the still waters. The lofty green plants have seen and withstand great tremors from below, but it is a rarity for such sturdy trees to fall from just quakes.A strange foreign girl wanted to meet with the town’s elder. She says that it has something to do with the coming catastrophe, the elder and a delegation of the townsfolk agree to meet with her.From the surroundings, and the colour of the bark and leaves you know you are near the …>Eastern Orchard>Snowy Forests>Sunken Woods
>>2012599From the lower tree tops you could see the submerged trees, with villages carved into them. The Flying Fishfolk nearby are more aquatically adapted allowing for longer time spent in the sea, however their wings are less suitable for flight as a result. It must be hard when the species prides itself on their wings.The young girl told them of a legendary tale, of her watching the world from atop the meteoric spire. A tree made entirely out of rocks from the celestial heavens floating atop the ocean. Such a claim is nearly unbelievable, even the steel wings of the sunken woods wouldn’t be able to take you to the top of the spire, maybe three fifths of the way. That is only if the tree is as big as they estimated, it could be way taller. But someone must have made the spire, maybe people have been living inside it for ages, maybe they are still building the massive tree even higher.“If you are indeed from the spire,” Moraus the eldest asks “Then maybe you know of a weapon to annihilate that dreadful star.”“No, not fight it,” you reply “Too late, way too late to do anything capable of harming it.”“There must be a way, surely?” the elder pleaded.“I have spoken to Ceda Ba,” you answer “He has a plan to deal with it, but not without significant harm to Okeantos, the surest way to survive is to leave this planet, I would like to take many of you to leave with me.”“To flee?” the elder fumed “Ceda Ba would never be so cowardly, cease this mockery.”“Please believe me,” you beg “It is the truth.”“Lying scoundrels who belittle Ceda Ba!” the elder exclaims “How should we punish such disgracefulness?”“Clip her wings!” the crowd shouts “Clip her wings!”>Run>Knock a few unconscious before running>Try to reason with them>[Write In]

The rush excites you as you pass trees like a blur, but the folk behind you jump into the water to try and catch up by swimming.Beset upon by rough waves, you thank your fortune as you quickly move ahead as they lag behind. But as you get confident you are hit by a stone. The damage it does is little but still annoying, and they throw even more stones at you.It is raining pebbles, but a load of fast rocks won’t stop you.“You won’t catch me, for I am really fast,” you laugh “Try throwing a little harder next time.”

>>2013320Seems I haven't explained clearly enough, there are two standard defensive reactions to an attack, Dodge which dodges an attack if you get more defense points than attack points, and Guard which mitigates damage, main difference is Dodge uses dexterity stat and Guard uses tough stat

You have been on constant move ever since the threat was first perceived and everyone gets tired eventually.You relax upon the outstretched tree branch for around 5 minutes, noticing a bright orange bug making a loud but soothing buzzing noise.Well, you wouldn’t want to nap and lose your one chance of getting off the planet, so you get yourself up and stretch your arms out.Just in time, you notice that the elder is flying your way equipped with metallic wings, if it was anything like your robe or mallet then it may not be possible to outfly him, a confrontation may be necessary, but you have plenty of options to win.>Hit him fast (Extra Attack Points)>Hit him hard (Extra damage)>Try some underhanded trick>Attempt to talk him out of fighting>Try to fly awayRoll me a set of 3 1d8 along with an action plan.

As it comes closer you feel the time go slowly by. Bam! Just as you try to move out the way a fist comes flying at you lined up with your face. Vision goes blurry as you are unprepared for a second strike. Your stomach takes a hit, making you feel like hacking up.You can barely focus as your hand goes to your mallet.

He is vastly stronger than yourself, the only comfort provided by the fact that if you aren’t strong enough to fight him then your instinct was absolutely right when it felt as if their was nothing you could do against the incoming asteroid. Another punch comes for your face making you feel worse for wear. Blood trickles from your nose as you prepare for an inevitable loss and the complete annihilation of your kind.Coralie HEALTH = 20/20 + 8/30 ARMOURThat is when you felt the coursing of power through your veins.
