    ((Apologies for the delay, Finals Week was crazy. FYI, ‘Captian’s Daughter’ is another name for a cat o’ nine tails.)) Several clusters of small-to-mid-sized red gashes appeared on the Cutter’s limbs and body as if it had been struck a few times with a Captian’s Daughter. The Cutter removes his sword from Tod and pulls back to where the two Goblins are standing, doing a remarkable job of concealing how much pain it must be in. Upon spotting Baron’s gun, the charging Hammer Devil, whose head is shaped like the tip of a spade, starts moving in an erratic zig-zag pattern in an attempt to throw Baron’s aim off. The other Hammer Devil, whose head is shaped like the head of the Sea Devil Titus saw in the Cove, is currently brawling with White, its arms having gained a light coating of frost from somewhere. Finally, Titus has been forced to discard the Hamlet Watch spear he had borrowed, due to its wooden shaft having shattered under the Mako’s assault. Thankfully, Titus had managed to wrench away one of the Mako’s twin short swords before the spear broke, and is currently using the pilfered sword to fight.

    (It’s ok Two steps, also, flaying is were the skin is peeled off)

    Tod moved backward, eying the two goblin sharks and the cutter who did not receive the desired affect of the attack. He then turned his crucifix towards the goblin shark to the left. Clutching his shoulder, he points it at it and screams,”INCENDO!”

    Baron growls at the shark man. He wasn’t going to waste a precious bullet, so he raised his sword instead, prepared to meet the bastard head on.

    (Sorry, this post will not write, Going to post what I’ve banged out.) The Spade-headed Hammer Devil seems to gain an expression akin to a pleased grin, as it moves in to engage with Baron. “And ke kahuna nui said we’d only find pahee poʻe here.” It says with a gravelly voice. “Show ol’ Hoku what ya got, Pup!” The sharkman, Hoku, remarks as he lunges for Baron.

    Baron would side step the lunge and try to slice at the creature’s gut.

    Tod’s incantation fizzles, and as the targeted Goblin Sea Devil moves into the light of a wall-mounted lantern, it becomes clear why. The cloak the Spell Caster is wearing is dripping wet, as is the rest of the creature.

    Of course it’s wet.

    Tod was beginning to run out of gas, he was not used to the constant casting he was doing. Then, he heard Lily’s voice, “cast iron is heavy.” “Something like that!” he said aloud to no one, only remembering a paraphrased version of the rest of the sentence. Tod then took up his crucifix, and swiftly ran past the cutter. He swung, like a baseball bat, the crucifix at the Goblin Sea Devil he had previously tried to burn.

    The three unengaged Sea Devils are caught completely off guard, not expecting the ‘spellcaster’ to get physical, the targeted Goblin getting knocked to the ground by the blow. The Cutter is the first to recover from the shock, jumping onto Tod. But the Cutter seems to be attempting to restrain Tod, not kill him… Baron might notice something similar with Hoku. After a few more-or-less successful feints, the surprisingly nimble Hammer Devil moves in to engage, fisticuffs betraying an intent to incapacitate, not kill. “O keia mau mea ekolu oi aku mamua e mai no na mea a pau o ka pahee poʻe makou holo iloko o.” (These three more than make-up for all of the soft ones we’ve run into.) The still standing Goblin says as it tends to his fallen friend. Titus seems to be wearing his Mako opponent out, but White and his Hammer Devil are still going at it.

    (Hells yes! Welcome back my friend!)

    Tod had never felt more alive, the surge of adrenaline kept him going for now as he scrambled to try to get out of the cutter’s grasp. He thought of unleashing a spell, but then he knew when the adrenaline wore off, he was going to pass out if he did so. Ultimately, the choice had to be made.

    LUX CLARUS

    Tod said, channeling the energy through his body, not crucifix.

    Baron nimbly steps away from the devil, keeping his sword between himself and the monster. “Get skewered, you Fucking fish!” he yells angrily.

    Tod is channeling his magic through his body as a last chance to get out of the cutter’s grasp, so he’s making his own body beam with light as both a distress beacon and to blind the cutter.

    ((Once again, Tod’s part proved problematic… Also what Hoku is attempting is called a Vagus Nerve strike, if it connects correctly, it’s lights out for Baron.)) “Uhi ia mea i! Aroka a Inku ua ole ana e hoopaa i ka kekahiʻelua nui aku!”(Wrap it up! Aroka and Inku are not going to hold the other two much longer!) The injured Goblin Devil shouts as it is helped to its feet by its companion. As if in response, Hoku is suddenly right beside Baron, throwing a palm strike at the base of Baron’s neck. Meanwhile, the Cutter continues to cling to Tod, but in the growing light from Tod, a new detail about the Cutter is revealed… the ‘dark eyes’ it possessed were just shadows in empty sockets.

    ShitShitShitShitShitShitShitShitShit!

    Tod gave up on the incantation as it was taxing and hurt quite a lot. Tod wrestled with the cutter, now knowing it’s eyes are hollow. Reaching for his dropped crucifix, He took it up, and slammed the handle into the eye socket of the cutter.

    Baron reacted by trying to duck under the blow. He only partially succeeded, getting a palm to the back of the head. His next instinct was to leap away from his attacker to create some distance.
