After my post... This time: Jin posts first, Al, then Neela
@ Jin - Instinct will tell you to raise your shield arm to block and block his attack you will.
Roll Dice 1-100
1-50 - You feel the projection of your will. In your heart you know that it's all you. It makes no sense but it's like your arm represents a shield. In affect you can even sense it - Like an over-sized roman legionaries shield. In your heart and mind you can picture every layer of metal and if you just hold it up IT WILL PROTECT YOU! One foot slides behind the other and your body will brace for impact. You are strong, you are The Warrior!
51-75 - The bloody goblin sword/machete comes down with wildly insane ferocity. All of the above is true but it can't be real and this is insanity to even think it. The shield blocks that blow but you feel it shatter like glass. Only you can see it and only you can feel it but it hurts as if someone just kicked you in the gut.
76-100 - You can like just Karate kick/punt that little son of a bitch! If you want to then go for it. He'll bounce across that room like a rubber ball. It won't kill him as he'll just get right back up from it but damn it'll feel good.
@ Al - It occurs to you that Gwyn ap Nudd is going to kill Jin or one of your other friends. He's your nightmare. Hell it's not even a nightmare... It's all coming back to you...
You'll remember a name, Gwyn ap Nudd. A pair of eyes exactly like his that you suddenly remember from every nightmare you've ever had in your life. The eyes of the abusive man who pretended to be your birth father. A memory that you tried to block out but haunted your dreams over and over your whole life. Gwyn ap Nudd was his real name and not Mr Birche.
*If you could just get behind him, maybe you could just wrap your arms around him and stop him from swining his sword. Of course you have no idea what to do after that but I'm sure someone else will think of something.
It occurs to you that if this was a dream then you could just will yourself behind him...
Roll Dice 1-100
1-50 - You know in your heart and mind that you can do it. With a single step forward you appear to others like you walk into nothingness and disappear with some sort of spectacular effects (up to you). When you pass through you feel the cool of the mists and it's like a long blink and a long heart beat then you step out on the other side, right behind the Goblin.Grab him!
51-100 - It happens the same as above but in that heartbeat between steps when you are neither here nor there you see the same classroom and hall but it's all blackened, burned, the stone is crumbling, and twisted looking things seem to pour out of every crack and rampage down the halls after you.
Then a woman's arms wrap around you. Her skin is softer then anything you could have imagined, her long white hair spills out over your shoulders like gossamer silk, and together you both step out behind the Goblin! Grab him!
@ Neela - If only it wasn't so dark in here. You can tell that the shadows are closing in. The others don't notice it but you do. They are coming and as you look on they swallow Maggie, her feet are pulled out from under her and she's dragged back into the darkness.
Roll Dice 1-100
1-50 - If you reach out for Maggie in that moment a pulse of bright light like a flash explodes from your hand. It drives back the shadows like a flaming fiery back-draft. It's pure white light pulses a few times down the halls. Maggie is gone but you see with clarity little cat like eyes, black shapes like centipedes that scatter when the light strikes.
51-100 - If you reach out for Maggie in that moment a tiny point of light forms in front of you (feel free to add some other little effects if you wish) When it's fully forms it remains a tiny point of light shining like a beacon, it's pure white light radiating warmth like the light of a summer sun. It's pure white light pulses a few times down the halls. Maggie is gone but you see with clarity little cat like eyes, black shapes like centipedes that scatter when the light strikes.
