Canne De Combat!
« on: August 23, 2008, 03:23:48 pm »


And let the Gaming Steven Canne de Combat Tournament of the 2008th year begin!

I take one half step forward and perform a feint.

I ignore your feint, and attempt a horizontal slice to your torso, then jump back to recover.

Your strike whiffs past my abdomen with just a hair's width between us. The pure force of your attack resounded through my body. My thoughts flash back to the day, the day with the swordfish. It's graceful and slick body terminating in the lengthy needle that lends the fish its name. That day, the reason I never take off my Canne De Combat costume....

But I must act with swiftness, for it is the nature of the sport. I let my emotions run wildly, and lunge forward with the ferocity of a cornered snow leopard.

i refrain from thinking about swordfishes and snowleopards and brace for a stout attack from you part.

Not putting thought into my strike would come back to haunt me. I miss your supple and toned chest by a near half foot. I stumble from this, but struggle to regain my footing.

(Others my engage as well, as this is the sport of both nobles and commonfolk)

I make entrance to the battle, charging directly towards my two new enemies with great speed.  As a novice, I know that I am at a disadvantage, and thus I wave my weapon widly like a mad man.

I run in and attempt to deliver you (Ramphastos) a sharp rap to the side.

I am hit.  I fall backwards, the newcomer had caught me be surprise.  I at once struggle to get to my feet and face this new menace.  I lunge at my opponent, aiming straight for the chest.

Ah, but not before I perform a carefully angled upward spiral towards your back.

I just barely managed to dodge, thanks to Yuu's well timed move. I skirt past both Yuu and Ramphastos and charge headlong towards Limeade, swinging wildly.

The manhole cover quivers and erupts into the air as I leap out between you and your quarry, parrying your blow and delivering a quick foot to the chest.

I run from Yuu, and not aware of my immediate surrondings, trip over a discarded manhole cover.  I fly forwards to meet with the earth, an encounter which leaves me stunned and breathless.

I take a dash towards Veraal, trying to ram him off the table while dodging his random but gracious swipes.

As I lie on the floor I see Shadowgandor charge forward.  I swipe at his feet as he passes.
