[Day 26 EM] Chase the Fox / Bokens Before Breakfast (OPEN)

A series of tatami floored rooms ring the dojo. At any given time, wooden and bamboo practice swords can be heard clacking or the sensei lecturing students. Peculiarly enough, compared to most dojo, these sensei speak with more questions than orders. Here, one corner of the ground floor has been reserved for guests to practice their own martial arts. At the center, a larger tatami floor spreads against a short conclave of bleachers. The east wall is occupied by a trio of shrines to Mirumoto, Shinsei and Togashi. A single stone at the base marks the grave of Mirumoto Hojatsu. Akin to the shrine in the village, a banner hangs with the words "Neither Will I."

Michio springs forward, shifting first right then left, ducking low and then turning rapidly in an attempt to get the sash to go slack.

[OOC: http://orokos.com/roll/493741 = 49. Full defense adds half that to the TN to be hit, which starts out for Kyoumi at 25. TN 50 required to slack the ribbon]


Remember when I said I was fast?

Karasu moves like lightning. Before Kyoumi knows what happend, Karasu had covered the distance between them and, lovingly, flicked her in the forehead with his finger.

"Ow!" Kyoumi springs back, looking both extremely frustrated and pleased at the same time. "Good one. You're a lot faster than you were last time we played this game. Shall we try at sword length?" She looks eager for a rematch.

Kenichi moves swiftly but evidently not swiftly enough.

Michio rolls the sash around his hand until the two touch knuckles. "Care to try fox this time?"

Karasu wrapped the cloth more around his hand. This time he starts the offensive.

Kyoumi dives under the attack and rolls to the side, keeping the ribbon taut. It's close...but she is a pretty fast little bunny.

Run away little bunny!(9d10o10k4/2)+25+3 = 46

Karasu should probably try again until he catches her...then they can switch.

Michio spools the sash until it is back to sword's length. "Hai!" He begins to slip and step, trying to circle around Kenichi's movements while maintaining distance.

Kenichi goes for full attack, trying to get into the spirit of the game. However, he is still a little off.
