Practice Bout (Open)

Post  GeneralArin on Sat Jun 29, 2013 5:18 pm

(Time skip! Because I'm way to impatient to let something as petty as ending a topic get in the way of doing something. ...I'm probably a bad example...)

Jake and Agamemnon were duking it out in the arena. Maybe that wasn't entirely accurate. While they were indeed sparring, it wasn't like they appeared overly vicious or clumsy about it. Jake had added a human warrior form for training after recent developments, and so he and a bronze man were essentially fencing, sword on sword. Jake had his usual shield equipped as well, and the automation's sword glanced off of it as he raised it slightly in an instinctive motion. They both had excellent footwork, though Jake tried not to do too many fancy steps. His leg still was sore from the quest. This was the second time it had been injured, and the first time he wasn't exactly careful about giving it rest. This time he wasn't either, but it was better.

Agamemnon deflected Jake's lunge off of the flat of its borrowed blade and tried for a forward slash under Jake's blade. Jake brought his shield over the front of his body, blocking his vision a bit but effectively protecting his chest. The blade scrapped against the shield. Jake turned and gave a low slash and the automation danced back.

It was kind of nice to be back in camp.

After a while of going at it, Jake mumbled a command to halt.
He rolled his stiff shoulders and examined the automation.

"Well, this form clearly works."

Agamemnon rumbled, which was a bit of an odd dissonance between the deep sound and the android form. Jake gave a flick of the wrist. "Two." He ordered. The automation shifted to a chimera. A bit more of a challenge alone, but it was less weird than looking at a bronze man. Talk about your uncanny valley.

Jake went over and picked up a cup of water. First he dumped it over his head, then he refilled it and gulped it down.

Justin walked to the arena for some practice. He had a sword in a sheath and carried a small bottle of water. He listened to the sound of clashing swords and the occasional "I'll rip your head off!" for when some of the campers got mad. He stepped in and walked to an available wood target that had pieces of wood that spun when you hit a plank and another comes at you. Justin took out his sword and smacked it against a piece and watched it spin and got hit in the leg by another.
"Ouch." he sighed and continued practising.

Jake watched the rest of the arena as he rested. Not to far away he saw a younger camper he didn't recognize practicing on one on the swivel dummies. They were intended to train reaction times and being able to quickly block the opposite side.
The kid didn't look very good at it.

"Bring your arms in." Jake called over.

Jay was just wandering around when he got the sudden impulse to walk into the arena. He did, and looked to see if he knew anyone. Maybe Estelle was here.. But he couldn't find her.

Justin heard the person that had given the tip and did so. He noticed the changes and how it had helped. "Thanks." he called back. He continued practising hitting the arms of the target.

Andrew walked into the Arena. It seemed now a day's he was found here practicing every second of his day with one of his weapons. Today he decided he'd be using one of his newer weapons Junior.

As he walked across the Arena he heard many people say hi to him or ask for advice on techniques. This had been going on since the battle they had not even a month ago (I think). He didn't really know why but possibly because he became the Counselor of the Harmonia Cabin through it and killing a lot of demigods. Not really something he liked to brag about.

Andrew continued walking until he saw he went passed Jake. He back stepped till he was right in front of him. "Well looked who decided to come and practice for once." He smiled at him.

Justin continued to swing his sword at the arms, thinking he was improv improving. After a while he put a hand on two of the arms stopping the swivel dummy. He looked at his sword and changed his grip and watched a second blade emerge from his sword. After it finished growing a second blade he noticed Andrew. He waved and went back to the dummy with the new weapon.

Jake grinned. "Please, I don't need practice." He joked, taking another drink. "If I were any better, I'd be unfair." Though between his usual projects and the quest, it had been a while since.he's personally practiced.
Agamemnon rumbled, possibly disagreeing with Jake's statement.

Jay walked over upon seeing Andrew. He smiled and waved. 'I don't think your automaton agrees,' he said jokingly as he took a sip from his own bottle.




((You owe me another dollar, Jay. It's not my fault you keep getting caught sneaking on the internet by your mom xD))

After Justin had gotten smacked around by the dummies arms he stopped it and sat next to it, taking drinks from his water bottle. He laid his sword next to him and looked around at the arena.

Andrew saw a hand wave at him so he waved back. "Oh Jake." He just shook his head not really sure what to say to it.

Jake laughed. Then he shrugged. "with all the projects and questing, who's got the time?" He said. He tossed aside his water cup.

'Yeah,' Jay sighed, thinking of Estelle. 'Genii never seem to have time,' he added a bit wistfully.
