Wise Man couldn't find any pitch, but he DID find a nifty autocrossbow. Grinning, he grabbed the weapon and plenty of ammo. He ran back to the battle and began spraying sharp incendiary bolts at the bats.

LF noticed the weapon, and asked, "Hey, where did you get that?"

"One of the nearby armories. Where else?" Wise Man answered...

Throwing waves of shurikens with both hands, Wise Man shot down many of the creatures, but they just kept coming, in the hundreds, if not thousands. There's no way I can have enough shurikens for this.

"I'll be back!" Wise Man announced, before he left to retrieve some arrows and boiling pitch (you know, for fire arrows)...

OOC: LF - Your IQ is ONLY 131? If you call yourself dumb with that kind of IQ, then I'm a retard at a low 117.
FB/Zephyr - Can't you just be a regular old travelling merchant? It's not like you HAVE to be connected to a organization of powerful NPCs just to sell a pair of pants to your typical citizen out there.

Wise Man entered the building through the window, over a small table, and stopped right in between Sullust, EF and Namothil. "Damn, they don't sell shurikens here. At least I have my own ammo." Wise Man tied his hair on a ponytail and put on a headband to hold back his long hair, and concealed his glaive. "I'm good to go."

Wise Man bumped into Alex while exploring the city (yet again). Something going on, by the vague hint of fear in his face. "Hey Alex, what up?"

"Be careful around Mars," Alex replied.
"Why?"
"Something's up with him, he's ... unlike before."
"What, he's a wimp now?"

Suddenly, as if he heard it, Mars appeared behind Wise Man. Wise Man turned around, not knowing his newly acquired demon powers and evil. "What up, Mars?"

"You dare insult me?" An evil-sounding Mars boomed.

"Huh?"

Without a chance to speak, Mars fired a barrage of fireballs at Wise Man. He was barely able to screen his face and body from the barrage, and when the barrage was over, the 'man' was gone. "Okay, I understand what you mean now, Alex. Let's meet up with Sullust, he just returned and might have some new knowledge. Lone Flame's back too, and he might have seen Mars recently, them two being good friends."

OOC: And all shall rejoice the departure of the spoiled brat.

Now, where were we?

IC:
Waiting for action, Wise Man cleaned the blade of his glaive in his room. It started to corrode from the magical poison EF cast when he was ambushed in front of his mother's grave.

Hmm. I should tell her that.

Wise Man descended from his room to find EF, and told her about the blade. "That poison you used last time, it's pretty corrosive, and it actually dullened my glaive blade. Just thought I'd let you know, that information could come handy in the future."

Wise Man managed to take the rest down with shurikens before they got too far. He thanked them for the much-needed assistance. Alex cleaned off the scene with some fire and water spells, so nobody would know.

"Now, I could use some privacy with my mother," Wise Man suggested when the four just stood there.

Wise Man lit a bit of incense, and bowed three times. He then set the incense down in a container (I don't know what you call them, but you sit them upright). The flowers had a slight stain of blood, but at least they weren't destroyed in combat.

"I have grown, mother. The Guild treated and trained me well." He began, in a voice just soft enough so that the others couldn't hear, yet loud enough so that he felt someone next to him would hear. "Your last wish was for me to rid the world of Old Kalnus, my supposed stepfather, for he was the one who raped and murdered you when I was young. From your diary that you left for me, I have learned the numerous inhuman deeds he had committed, supposedly for the family, but obviously for power. Rest assured, mother, that I will avenge the deaths of you, father and all the men, women and children he had killed and maimed. I will succeed."

Wise Man left her mother's grave, to find the four eavesdropping. Heaving a sigh, Wise Man took out one of those MIB things (you know, the memory erasing things), and pressed one of the buttons, emptying their minds of what he had said just a few minutes ago. "Y'all were cleaning up the mess, and heard nothing. Now let's go back."

OOC: I'll just continue on with my own personal quest while you argue on, FB... :P

IC:
Wise Man was about to leave, but EF stopped him. "Hey, where do you think you're going?"

"I do not consider visiting my mother's grave a high-profile activity."

"Very well."

Wise Man left to the east, for a cemetery near the city limits, stopping along the way to buy the flowers.

I just don't look right holding these... But it does not matter.

By midday, Wise Man had reached his mother's grave. He was about to light some incense (I think that's what you call those Chinese candles, you know, the little thin ones that burn slow), when an armed party of well-armed warriors surrounded him. Judging from their armour, he knew his father sent them.

"So now I can't even visit my mother's grave without shedding blood, huh?"

He set the flowers down in front of the gravestone, and readied his glaive for a nearly hopeless fight.

One cannot defeat twenty. I hope there's backup soon...

OOC: Zephyr Impersonator Gargoyle. Good one, FB.

IC:

Wise Man woke up in a nondescript hotel room. "I thought I'd be dead..."

E.F. (sorry, but i'm not used to someone's name without caps at all) entered the room to find Wise Man up and ready to go again. "Hey, what are you doing up when you were so heavily injured?"

"We blademasters, the ones who are mutants that is, heal more quickly than the average human being. We consider it one of the gains over our resistance to many healing magics. Thank you for saving me, boss." With that, Wise Man exited the room to meet with the others.

Wise Man remained unconscious, slowly dying in front of Kalnus' mansion. How easily forgotten some characters are...

OOC: it's about time i ended the battle between Wise Man and his father ... ugh.

IC:

Wise Man barely dodged a barrage of homing ice bolts. Kalnus leapt towards Wise Man, catching him off guard, and charged into him, bashing him into a wall.

Recovering quickly, Wise Man teleported behind his father, and made several ineffectial strikes. Kalnus made a hard backhand punch, knocking Wise Man back. He then threw him into the air with a Wind-elemental strike, then fired several Fireballs, hitting Wise Man hard. After he landed on the ground, Kalnus picked him up, and beat Wise Man with the strength of a bear, until Wise Man looked pretty dead. Laughing, Kalnus threw Wise Man into the wall, making sure to break a few more bones. Laughing at the sight of his nearly-dead son lying in his own, growing pool of blood, Kalnus teleported away.

"You old madman..." Wise Man uttered, before losing consciousness...

OOC: No, Wise Man's father isn't insane, they just hate each other THAT much.

IC:
The wizard's bodyguards charged directly at Wise Man, not knowing the skills of the blademaster. Just as they were about to strike, Wise Man leaped back and killed both with a wave of shurikens. "You weren't as rich as you were when I was a baby, with those useless bodyguards."

The easily angered wizard fired off a blast of ice, but only managed to hit a mirror image. The blademaster reappeared behind him, and thrust his glaive into the back of his head, killing him instantly.

This is too easy... Old Kalnus doesn't fight this badly.

A voice above laughed coldly. "You think I'd be foolish enough to fight like that weakling? That was just a body double, imbecile! Now, it's time to teach a boy a valuable lesson." Kalnus swoop down from the roof, enchanted sabre barely dodged by Wise Man...

Wise Man stood up and stretched, making sure none of his 'tools' showed. "Archmage can go. I have some ... old unsettled business to take care of."

With that the blademaster left the inn, for one of the rich corners of the city. Much of the people there eyed him with suspicion, as if he were a thug. Others were curious as to why a mutant human would go to a rich district maintained by mages.

He stood outside the front door of a small mansion and knocked the door. A butler answered it. "Tell your master his mutant son is here." The quickly frightened man ran back inside to tell his master. An old, rich wizard and his two bodyguards greeted him with hatred.

"So you tried to kill me again, huh?" Wise Man asked, coldly.

"You are the illegitimate son, unlike Kahn," the wizard answered, equally coldly. "You spoiled the generations of magi, therefore it is fitting that you die."

Wise Man laughed. "If you want me to die, then why did you not kill me at birth?"

"I prefer the challenge in roasting blademasters with mage fire."

"Very well, old man." Wise Man readied his glaive. The wizard channeled intense magical power into his staff, and his bodyguards charged into battle...

OOC: This is my character's own fight, nobody can help him in this.

Wise Man took a quick look around. "It's a good thing my ... tools are ... easily hidden."

His steak, somehow, had a strange tint to it. Being his cautious self, Wise Man took out an enchanted silver needle, inserted it into the steak, then removed it. The moment the needle was removed, it turned black. "Poison."

Everyone at the table stopped eating. Wise Man smiled, then chuckled. "Don't worry. I know this brand of poison. Whoever poisoned the food, I was the target, you don't need to worry."

Although I already know who targeted me.

OOC: Wise Man will eventually have a frontal confrontation with his mage parents, who are out to get him because of the spoiled family line (remember how I said WM carries a mutation in his genes, same area as most other blademasters?). But the crew knows nothing about his relations with his parents yet.

Wise Man pelted it with charged shurikens, but to no avail. "Oh right, no real nervous system. By the way, make sure nothing covers Mars' nose!"

Wise Man cut off a tentacle that was holding Mars' chest tightly. A swooping tentacle sent WM to the ground. FD stabbed the creature repeatedly with poisoned daggers, but there was no visible effect other than a slight decrease in speed and reaction (OOC: I assume FD uses Slowing Poison on his weapons as well as regular poison).

"Now what?" FD asked.
"Watch my back, and the thing's tentacles. It's time to deliver a little shock." Tapping into the might of his soul, Wise Man charged his glaive to the point of instability, then delivered a thrusting blow to the creature. It convulsed violently, every cell of its body overloaded with soul energy, until it finally lay limp, dead by roasting. Wise Man stood there, sweating and panting heavily, then removed the weapon. "Alright, we'll need to seal this room now. If the corpse slips off the hull, the water will flood the ship and it'll sink."

Being the only one able to stay completely calm, Wise Man quickly analysed the situation. Okay. Alex is trapped under at least four tentacles. He's got 6 minues to live, that means I got 6 minutes to save him. I'll need Mars and FD to distract the monster while I pry him out and drag him out of here.

Wise Man quickly told them his hastily formulated plan, and the three got to work...

The orange tentacle inched out of sight, into another chamber. Wise Man and Mars followed, only to be blocked by a wall of thorny vines. They tried hacking it apart with their weapons, but to no avail. Mars tried plenty of fire magic, but the vines burned with the speed of a snail. "Now what?" He asked Wise Man.

"I still have a trick I haven't tried in years." Wise Man channeled energy onto his hands, and blades of soul energy began to form. With lightning fast movements he hacked down the barrier in a matter of minutes. "Damn, that smarts. Let's move on, but we should try to avoid these walls."

Right after they left the area, the wall grew back into place...

EDIT:
OOC: There are three main circles of blademastery: War, Thievery and Healing. WM specialized mostly in the Circle of War, with a little knowledge in Thievery and next to none in Healing. What WM just did (Soul Blade) is a skill in the Circle of Thievery, which is why he could barely hack through the wall of vines.
