[F21-PP] The faces that hide

Recommended Posts

He followed the two obediently. What other choice did the kid really have? Not much, especially in a dungeon. Pinball had the horrible feeling that the monsters they encountered from here on out were only going to get tougher and tougher as they went along, and he was going to have to nut up or shut up. He slowed to a halt when Zandra spoke, nodding. He was, surprisingly, calmer than he was when he was just talking to his companions. Why was fighting easier than talking to people? He squinted. That was pretty weird. He looked to Hestia then. 
"Bad joke," he grumbled, leveling his spear. He inched forward. He glanced at Zandra, then back up ahead. Was he going to follow her charge, or was he going to lead it? He bit his lip, mustering up the courage to speak again to the stronger player. 
"On your lead.

After quite a lot of walking they finally left the corridor and entered a huge hall. Twice as big as the previous one. As they advanced thru the corridor the after awhile the sound had started to increase steadily and when they entered the hall they saw why. Like in the prvious room, there was dwarfs hitting the stone with their heavy pickaxes. Though they was too busy with their work to make notice of the newcomers. But it the other end of the hall they saw some that wasn’t busy mining. Five dwarfs where looking over the floor and spotted the three humans when they entered the light that seemed to come from some kind of system with mirrors and lensese. A few seconds later one of the dwarfs, one with a heavy hammer, starting to hit a big bell. A loud boom from behind showed a two feet thick stonewall on chains now blocked their only way of retreat. The miners immediately abandoned their work and left the room together with the hammerwielding dwarf after he had sounded four dings from the golden bell.

The four remaining dwarfs advance towards the small group. They looked much thougher then the first guards. Zandra gulped. ‘’Good luck bowling them down.’’ She said with a smile towards their tank. Her face back to its normal colour except for a faint blush on her cheeks. ‘’Well, ladies first.’’ She said to their strongest line of defence and gave room for Hestia.

I chuckle a bit at Zandra's words and just nod my head with a smile across my face as i move towards the group of dwarven guards with a slam of my sword against my shield as i activate howl to get their focus upon me as i get in a defensive stance afterwards. Come on you stupid dwarves! Fight one of Aincrad's best tanks and see if you can even get past this iron wall of defense! I shout towards the group as i ignore to say the fact that i am one of Aincrad's only tanks really since their is only Shield, and Morgenstern as the only other true tanks within Aincrad with anyone else being an off tank by the nature of their build. After that and a nod of my head and a smile upon my face i wait patiently as i watch the four dwarvens come charge towards me as i wait for the attacks to land. I watch as the four dwarves charge towards me as i raise my shield and feel three attacks slam down on top of it with a strength that i haven't been entirely prepared for. I watch my health plummet much faster than anything i have ever seen before as i just quickly push them away and sidestep the next attack out of fear of losing more health than what i am prepared to lose. Uhhhh Pinball can you focus on the leader with your strongest attack, Zandra i am trusting that you have something that can stun them all after that! I call out towards the two players thinking of something as quickly as possible for a battle strategy.

"Roger that!" Pinball wasted no time. In a moment's notice, he hefted his spear over his shoulder and charged. He jumped over the shoulders of the Dwarven Guards, bypassing any semblance of formation they might have had and striking straight at the Dwarven Guard Commander. He felt his spear rip through the commander's armor. A blast of cold air hit Pinball's face, and he grit his teeth in a vicious half-smile half-snarl. He finished by slamming his spear across the Commander's head, causing the monster to fall over, knocked on its feet. Ice crept across its armor and features. Pinball took a step back, glancing between his party and the three other mob remaining. He almost called out to the two girls, but thought better of it before he opened his mouth. It wouldn't be very wise to catch their attention while he's exposed like this. He could only hope that Zandra followed up with an attack that grabbed their attention, or that they kept focused on Hestia.

As Zandra let the tank do her thing, she herd her call the dwarfs stupid. She let out a giggle. ‘’Hehe, what are you saying? One of the best?’’ she saw the dwarf hammering on her shield, followed by Pin dealing a powerful strike at their commander, freezing him in place. ‘’You mean the, best tank in Aincrad.’’ She charged up her Explode catapult before she darted forward towards the small group of small humanoids. The axe head slammed into the commander with a powerful swing, shattering the ice that had freezed him and doing some additional cracks in his health bar. When the ice was gone, he instead started to burn, unable to do anything though. With the momentum she got, the axe continued to dance and cleaved thru two more dwars, turning one of them into a torch as well. But after hitting them, the momentum wasn’t quite strong enough to deliver a fourth strike so the halfhearted try missed completely. ‘’Sorry Hestia. We could only stop three of them for you.’’

Looking towards Pin i would watch him strike at the commander like planned i than chuckle as the ice covers the commander stopping him from being able to move at all as i nod my head at that success as i than gain a rather quick blush across my face when i hear Zandra call me the best tank within aincrad. Which is saying something when trying to compare me to someone like Shield, or even Calrex even if Calrex is a unfair comparison to anyone because of his unique skill. With a red across my face i fail to notice the attack from the last guard as i am only able to move my shield up ever so slightly to try and stop the fatal attack as my familiar rushes in and knocks the weapon from hitting my head to moving it more so down and slamming into my right arm. After the attack i quickly knock away the guard even with the slight blush across my face from the compliment from Zandra as it is high praise. Just focus on continuing the assault! Pinball focus on the leader, Zandra focus on AoE we can't stun them for awhile!

Keep up the assault? That was something Pinball could do, but he was a bit jealous of Zandra's damage. He frowned, but then he put up another smile again. He had to keep the fight going! "Alright," he acknowledged. If he was lucky, he could freeze the commander again. Pinball's ice was gone now, replaced by Zandra's crackling embers. Pinball leveled his spear. He wasn't far from the commander, but he wasn't going to get a hit in with a slow, lazy strike. He was just happy that Hestia had their attention. Pinball drove his spear into the commander's back, then unleashed another Dimension Stampede point blank into the unaware monster's torso. Pinball pulled back as ice crawled across the dwarf's armor, Freeze having triggered once more. Pinball threw himself back and away from the fight again. He had to stay back and away if he didn't want to end up getting screwed over by that dude's hammer. He grit his teeth. He wasn't doing as much damage as he wanted.

Zandra saw a faint blush on Hestia. She never though she would see a blush on that tank. It may be weird because ofcourse everyone could blush. But she haven’t thought that Hestia would do it from a compliment like that. But still, a faint smile on her lips because she felt happy the other female took it as a good thing. ‘’Focus on the aoe? Roger.’’ She took a steady grip of the axe and charged up her sword art. She saw the ice growing on the commander from Pin’s attack once again. ‘’Nice one Pin!’’ Zandra said to him before she released the Teseleth fury, cleaving thru the whole group, setting one of the guards ablaze and another resetted the duration of the burn. The ice on the commander shattered and dealt a bit more damage. They was getting low. But now Hestia would take attacks from all of the enemies. Even if she was a heavy and durable tank, would she be okay? ‘’Hestia, rember that you have the war rally. Use it if you feel it’s a good time. Even if you may survive this fight anyway, we still want you healthy for the final big boss.’’

I look towards the group of dwarves charging once more as i raise my shield and activate a sword art of my own to try and counter the attack towards me once more as i focus upon the group and than sprints forward towards the enemy to meet their attacks. The sound of the clanging metal against the stone and rock of the mines of these dwarven foes echoing as i move towards them and cut into them with my blade moving through them like a dancer as my blade manages to only catch two people with an attack. However, for myself i had received much rougher damage returned back towards me as the four dwarves attacked in unison as my familiar only had enough time to push two of them away to prevent them from both striking against me in my blind spots. That being the commander who he knocked into one of the lower guards. Standing their heavily breathing i chuckle a bit at Zandra's words and just gives her a smile as i back away from the group of four as i stare at our enemies. Don't worry about my health! Continue pressing the attack don't break our attack structure! We can knock it down to one guard if we follow through with this! I shout over towards the duo of players with a smile and look of confidence upon my face.

The fight was going smoothly, and the monsters were falling one by one. Sure, Pinball felt largely outclassed and kind of unneeded in a fight like this, especially given the Commander's unholy resilience- but still, he couldn't complain. He needed the experience, and fighting these types of monsters with this kind of company surely made for great practice. He waited patiently for Zandra to stop swinging her axe around (he didn't want to get caught up in that), and for Hestia to finish dropping another one. Then he started to move, and then he saw Hestia's health. 

If he could drop his spear, Pinball would have. He lowered his weapon and instead ran straight to her, apparently forgetting about her ability as a medic. Worry was written all over his face as he got closer. Tanks weren't supposed to get that low! He hadn't seen a tank get knocked to the yellow before without immediately having a regen activate that brought them back up. It made him worry not about his, but about her safety.

The dawrfs was steadily getting shorter. Though it wasn’t quick enough in Zandra’s own opinion. But that was something she kept to herself. But still, these where dwarfs. They supposed to have heavy armor and be hard to bring down. At least they shouldn’t deal that much damage in return. That was when Zandra glanced at the party health bar. Her eyes widened when she saw Hestias health. Zandra looked back on the guards. They was dropping down low, but it wasn’t sure she would succed in taking them down all three. Hestia wasn’t really a dps, so Zandra wasn’t sure she would land a hit. So probably parry or something that would mitigate the attack damage from the enemy would be better. Though to give Hestia the option, she shouted out a single word as her attack had landed. Her attack, cleaving thru all of the dwarfs, shattering one of them into crystals, bring the burning one so that he would die from the fire. Though the leader still had some health left. ‘’HESTIA! SWITCH!’’ she prepared for an incoming attack if Hestia would choose to switch. Though if she had a stun attack, that would be needed.
