I got a question. Since your guys attack hit my guys leg or knee somewhere close to that, shouldn't it when my guy will flip make a certain agle to-and since my guy can draw his sword as fast as a bullet could leave a gun in a 50 cal sniper rifle- make it to where he could draw his sword and swing it while spinning to the ground and slice to Lyzans face, and this would be instinctive seeing as he knew where Lyzan was before, and he would be able to read the air signs to know what angles and movements Lyzan took to dodge and deliver the attack so his slice would be accurate. Wouldn't that attack acutally connect, because even if you think different, your guy can come from lands far away be in many battles. Doesn't mean hes going to get away from every wound and injury.
Remagen, before I answer you, do keep in mind that I'm not insulting you in any ways with this reply but I apologize if you find it offensive.
Firstly and to be frank, I couldn't quite accept that bullet speed movement of yours when you first put up the CS. Most here in RPG would reject that kind of CS but having noticed that you're a teacher to some fighters, I thought you could deliver that kind of "feel" when you deliver your post in your sentence aside from "My PC could move as fast as a bullet leaving it's barrel" and with such thought, I accept it -because I wanted to see how you could make this work-.
Furthermore, there was no charge to support this fast action as well. If every action were as fast without being charge, I think you could be untouchable. Even a samurai would need to place his/her hand on the hilt to make a quick draw and I would've allowed it since his/her action seemed ready to draw the blade that fast.
(in your case, it'll take two move; 1 is to bring your hand to the hilt and then 2, draw the blade out for the strike.)
Basically, what I'm saying is, I would take a hit if I think it's fairly given or exchanged through the way it was delivered and not because of "My PC is faster than yours" kind of a way. If you were to ask those who'd RPed with me in the arena, they would agree with me here. And if you said you've read some of my fights, then you too shall know this is true.
The arena is about forcing or trapping your opponent to take the hit you give from the way it was constructed into words and not because that you've made a strong or fast PC. There need to be some logic behind every strike made and not entirely of fiction.
Finally, if you think you could deliver the strike you wanted as in your quote in a way that I felt no way to avoid it, then go ahead and make that post.
(My reply here may be influenced by my lack of worry with that attack for I already had that counter thought up while making my post. In other words, I already have my next move/step prepared to support my action and to counter some of Cross's possible reaction.)
No disrespect hit me there. I am a teacher, doesn't mean I have actually fought that much. When I did fight it was far back. And yes, I stated in my Cs that he could dodge a bullet. Meaning he has to be as fast as a bullet, it makes perfect sense. Not a 50 cal mind you, that was an metaphorical term. But you have been quite alot so far, ignoring how fast Cross is actually able to go. I have let it slide, but you still are ignoring it. You seem to think that he is going the same speed as your guy, hes a vampire. Think about it, watch vampire diary's you might get an actual idea of how fast a vampire can actually go. Seeing that, he can move his hand quite fast, he can draw the sword while being hit in the leg, and since he threw a punch with his left hand, his right goes backwards near his sword, leaving only a mere second to draw the sword and while falling in an angle he swings.
See, you underestimate what I can do and how I can do things. I am a taction, not just my character. I have stated before, once that attack with the punch missed in that post I explained Cross was going to get his sword, so yes. His hand was going in that direction during the swing anyways. His fingers were touching the hilt practically. Perhaps you should think about the characters, instead of the words that take place. I asked this question to see exactly what your response was. Not disappointed either.
*sigh* You seem to miss my point. I guess I really suck at explaining. ^^'

You clearly state if the blow landed, then Cross would reach for the sword and not otherwise. -the if statement here meant that should the blow miss, Cross wouldn't be drawing the blade out-
That's how "if" works, no? You have not mention Cross hand was there on the hilt either.
Another thing for me to point out, yes, true that you're a vampire but I too am a creature that's not human. How then could a vampire and a lycan be the greatest of rival if the wolf could easily be killed due to the speed of the bat?
But that's besides the point. Look, Lyzan have had a match with a normal human samurai before and had taken damage from said warrior. I assure you, by stating that your PC could move lightning fast, that won't give you points in the fight.
Let me recap this.
First, you mention that Cross had thick skin and strong bone and my blade couldn't even draw a drop of blood even when it was the pointy tip that struck him. And you'd this magical shield that automatically activated when danger is close without the need to prepare or cast anything. Next, the speed is so fast that my PC couldn't touch you or couldn't dodge your strike. Is that right, so far?
If this is so, then Remagen; let me make this very clear to you.
You win! There's no need to continue the fight since I couldn't think of a way to hurt your character or to kill him. I admit defeat! ^^'
-Sigh- That isn't what I mean't. Way to add a strange comical twist, its not that he couldn't dodge them. Anyone can dodge an attack, what I mean't was that he is in fact as fast as a bullet. Kind of like Sonic the hedge-hog I know the weirdest thing to compare to, your sword COULD draw blood if it was enchanted to go through shielding from magic, or enchanted to add sharpness and strength and other crap.
I am saying, that my characters speed is greater then a werewolves, the werewolf was generally thought to be a rival because of its claws and strength. But, Cross is a pure-blood. A very old pure-blood, and age grants bonuses to vampires. I could have possibly ended the match along time ago when you went to stab Cross through the stomach, Cross could have broke your guys wrist, held the sword there and possibly stabbed your guy through the throat with a dagger. Maybe, not sure how your guy reacts to that kind of thing. If you really want to quit then so be it, if not then I will make my post.
