[OP-F19] Attack on the trading post! <<Player-event>>

Recommended Posts

As Zandra was fixing some documents related to the administration of the guild Aincrad Trading Post, she suddnely got interrupted by a sound. A sound she recognized very well. It was the sound of battle. ‘’What!? Are we being attacked?’’ she said to her eagle familiar Zita. ‘’Come, we need to check it out. Zandra grabbed her axe and rushed out. When she got outside, she saw she was right. A big creature she had never seen before was approaching the guild hall. She started to approach the monster when she saw another player landed an attack on it, but it barely reduced its healthbar at all. This wasn’t something she would be able to kill alone. But not only that, she also saw her maximum health drop as well as an screen that forced her to choose a weapon appeared.

‘’Nope Zita, we wount be able to do this.’’ She said and headed back to the main settlement and putted up an announcement.

Emergency!

Aincrad Trading Post is currently looking for volunteers to help us defend our guild hall. There is a big boss monster attacking it. We are willing to pay you for your help.

Best regards, Zandra, guild leader of Aincrad trading post.

The starting city as par usual, Raidou found himself positioned to accept yet another Nature's Treasure from the board that was strapped to in front of the tavern. Sliding through the menus the same as always a subtle glimmer catches his eye, from the request board section. He found himself far to intrigued by the sudden light, Curious to peel his gaze away and took to closing the quest menu.

A hastily scrawled note that seemed to have been projected here, from another floor. The red wanderer leers with his sight darting upon the sheet of paper, the information contained within was sufficent enough to act. Raidou thought about contacting the others, but there was no time for hesitation or pause if he was going to lend a hand. Making a copy of what he needed, adjusting his frames on the bridge of his nose and taking to the warp gate a whisper "Floor 19"

A flash of blue light that broke reality to fragments, before his feet found solid ground.

[Welcome to Floor 19: Ralberg]

The prompt hung in front of his vision for a moment, Raidou had a bit of difficulty navigating about with it obscuring his eyesight. Filled with reluctance, Raidou managed to choke out a question to a passing player.

"Where can I find Aincrad Trading Post?"

A blonde with tied up hair, simple leather tunic caring a crate to who knows where pauses a bit creeped out by the sudden outburst. A bit of hesitation on a twisted face, she anchored the box on her thigh before pointing to a standard looking structure, albeit large in the distance. A silent nod to the girl who shook her head and continued on walking. Upon reaching a decent approach toward his destination, his HUD seemed to hop. In control of its own movement, producing a selection window that read:

Quote

 

Choose your Weapon:

  • Sword
  • Axe
  • Warhammer
  • Staff

 

Without a second thought, Raidou went with what he was familiar, as to not be a hindrance. His signature blade was replaced with a modest sword, steel and simple. "Hmm... Light..." Raidou remarked sheathing it on his back and pressing forward not knowing what to expect.

Raidou picks up arms in defense: [Sword]!

This blasted event didn't even give her the option to equip a pair of unenhanced gauntlets.

Mishiro's lips were set in a thin line and, for as long as she held out on her decision, she kept her hands shoved into her coat pockets. The game had automatically unequipped her gauntlets. Preserved every player's dignity by nullifying armor and accessory enhancements instead of taking them off. Then presented her with four options, none of which she liked. The girl had half a mind to turn around and return to the sole reason she was in one of the higher floors in the first place -- a calming walk, in a settlement which she rarely visited and was as far from home as she could possibly want, to ease off her hidden frustration with Claude's very... disruptive lodger -- but the scene that played out before her icy gray eyes compelled her otherwise.

A considerable distance from the vine-infested remnants of the collapsed stone structure beneath her feet, the battle was already underway. Players went in to attack, yet their blows were inconsequential to the behemoth's massive HP bar. Undaunted, the field boss would continue its steady advance.

Certainly the sort of situation that would warrant for a frontliner to send a floor-wide call for reinforcements. Guild halls could be rebuilt, yet the time, effort, and Col dedicated would be lost forever. A collective movement to defend the Trading Post from a hostile event with mechanics most had never encountered before was a daunting task, yet, if they succeeded, it was less detrimental than leaving it to crumble like Floor 19's ruined cities. Gathering by the town gates were players who likely thought the same as her, and as Mishiro watched them from afar, she felt obliged to see this event through.

She lifted a pale hand to the semi-transparent window that floated squarely in the middle of her vision and pressed an option.

Floor 19. Yuki hadn't gone this high since the last event, but she had gotten a message in her requests asking for assistance. Events were supposed to give players more experience than quests, so it wouldn't hurt to participate in as many as she could. She teleported to Ralberg, the main settlement, and made her way to the Aincrad Trading Post. From what she knew, it was a player guild that offered heavy benefits to players wanted to focus mostly on their crafts. It didn't take her long to rush to the location. Most people knew where the head quarters was, so she asked some passerby players for directions until one of them gave a good description.

When she entered the quests location, she was prompted to select a weapon. There was no option to keep your current weapon, so she would have to choose something here. She closed her eyes and pushed whichever option she got with her finger. Her beautiful lance disappeared and a beautiful gold trimmed battleaxe appeared in her hands. It was easily twofold heavier than her one handed lance, but it would work.

She approached the doors to the ATP and met up with the players who had beat her there.

"Oi! I'm here to help! She called out. She assumed that since this was taking place on a high level floor that most people here would know each other and she would be the only stranger in leagues. "My level is pretty low, but I should be fine. Hope I can do more than sit around and look useless." She laughed nervously scratching the back of her head.

Life was finally accustomed to the lower floors again since his isolation, he was pretty much ready to start venturing to the higher floors now, though he'd need a good excuse to. As he walked the cobblestone streets, a bulletin board caught his eye:

Well that seems like a good enough excuse for me to go. Where was the guildhall located, floor 19? Life smirked and made his way over to the teleporter. "Lets see what you've got for me."

Floor nineteen was strange, an ancient city, littered by dilapidation, a post apocalyptic floor. If there were people here once they weren't anymore. Life continued through, he'd open the floor map if he'd been here before, but everything was new to him. Eventually however, he would find the guild hall.

A HUD window popped up with a selection of weapons for him to choose from, sword, axe, staff, warhammer. 
"Hmm, no choice for Katana huh. No matter I guess a regular sword is good enough." Life grabbed himself a regular straight sword, the other weapons seemed kinda crude for him and lacking elegance. Though he was eager to see everyone fighting together. I wonder what will happen with everyone here, he thought to himself. Surely there'd be enough people to defend the guild hall now, but it still remained to be seen at how powerful the boss monster was.

The sound of rushing footsteps came closer and close to the 19th floor’s trading post as Macradon was approaching “C’mon Bel, we gotta give as much help as we can!” he said as he rushed up through the main plaza of the first floor. He walked in uncomfortable clothes, at least clothes he wasn’t used to wearing … clothes that he had been urged to come in, not that he voluntarily asked to try them out or something …

As he arrived at the Trading Post Guild Hall, Macradon stood ready and looked at the available screen “Oh I haven’t tried axe before, let’s do this.” he mumbled and accepted the axe as his weapon of choice. “I’m here to help, give me directions if a defense coordinator has already been assigned, I’ll do my best to wipe out as many as I possibly can!” he called out, thinking that everything was already in the works. He looked around, not many he knew were here, which might or might not mean that this defense was gonna go well or not.

He grit his teeth and stuck his axe down into the ground @Zandra, can you brief me of what’s going on?” he asked and awaited to see what use he could be of.

Mari had received a message from Macradon, something about coming with him to help out a guild. Mari didn't mind. Be it a quest, event - or something more - she'd do it, not only because he asked her to come - but because it gave her something to do. She was told the Guild Hall was juuuust on the cusp of the safe zone - so if she was careful, she'd be fine. The first thing she saw; was an option to pick a weapon. "Ahh..." So she couldn't use a dagger? "So let's go the complete Opposite." Mari said as she drew out a large Warhammer, it was almost twice her size.

As she turned around she saw a familiar face. "Mac!" She hurried her step as she approached and slowed to a halt in front of him. "I-uh..." She tilted her head to the side, "Nice uh...outfit?"

Macradon grinned and reached out to her, placing a set of bunny ears atop her own head - orange ones to match her wild hair colour, he then shoved what she assumed was meant to be the tail in her hands. "Here Mari, put these on quick. It's Urgent!"

"Oh Uh...O...Okay!?" Mari adjusted the ears then clipped the tail just where her ...well, tailbone would be. "Why? Is it an Easter event?"  Mac grinned and shrugged.

What did he just get me into?

Mari coughed and looked around, none of the other players were wearing these. Mari turned to Mac, her face beetroot red, as she turned her head the ears atop her head twitched. "WHAT did you get us into This time?"

Mari is now Bunny Mari for this thread
-Mari Chose WARHAMMER!

Zandra had put up the emergency message, she was still not sure if anyone would come. Yes, they had grown in size, but Aincrad Trading Post was still a relatively unknown guild. But also, why did their HQ even got attacked in the first place? They haven’t done anything to anger anyone. Right? But she couldn’t let whoever it was to ruin what she and her guildcomrades had built up.

Zandra was blocked from equipping any of her enchanted armor and there was four forced weapon choices. She was just going to charge in with a staff in her hands when she saw someone arrive. A blackhaired boy followed by a young girl. Followed by yet another pair. Even thou she didn’t recognized the player, it warmed her heart that they had came so quick to something that probably didn’t really effected them. ‘’Im very happy you decided to come help.’’ She said to the pinkette.

The fifth person was a man she recognized. ‘’Oh, Mac. I don’t have much info. I was doing some administration business when I herd sound outside. I went to see what it was and yeah, I cant take that alone. Sexy outfit you have by the way.’’ Then she saw Mari that she had just recently met and get contact with after so long time of fear. ‘’Oh, hi Mar…’’

 

Suddenly, a big root bursted out from the ground right infront of the small group. It rose five meters tall and at least half a meter thick. Zandra quickly raised her staff to protect herself as the root fell down. Thou it didn’t helped much, the root stroke her and she got knocked back several meters right into a stone pillar. Everyone around could see the green bar above Zandra drop down to zero as she fell to the ground. But the body was still there and a status-symbol appeared, showing she was paralysed. After the initial attack, the players could see the thick root splitting into three creatures, looking like ents where each of them was over two meter tall and represented a different season. Spring, summer and fall. They had a green healthbar with a blue bar right below and a red crystal above. Their angry faces started approach the big party with armed players.

Raidou took a quick look at the motley crew that took up arms in defense of this guild, and although some were graced with more questionable attire it would have to suffice. A few he recognized and a most he didn't. "Mac...Mari..." Only met for moments but stung in his head an everlasting image of times past. An echoing crash ripped him back to reality, as one produced themselves from the building and seemed stuck with some ailment. "Paralyzed" Raidou whispered before turning to a green that seemed to cower at the impact.

Pointing to the kid in a shout, clad in a white tunic with orange hair "You, grab her and move her." The kid points to his face as if questioning the order "Yes you get her the hell out of here." Pointing at Zandra, the kid turns tail and runs off as fast as he can "Useless." Raidou remarks

The others weapons were more imposing, broader ranged. "Focus the same target, first the closest." Raidou spat and charged forward. A flash of blue danced on the end of this standard looking sword, before the feeling of a connection.

ID# 138494 results: Battle: 8 (Sword - Attack #1 vs.Tree of the spring)

A light weapon tears across the wooden exterior causing a slight spray of splinters in a winding ark, Raidou found himself moving much more fleet then usual. Pivoting in a slide, Raidou grinds to a halt hoping at the very least he drew its attentions.

Yuki waved down Mari, Life and Mac. It was nice to see some familiar faces in this event, though she didn't know Mac as well as she did Life or Mari. She offered all them a smile until she noticed them exchanging bunny-attire. Was it an Easter thing? Either way, she had a good vanity set of clothes for this.

"Oi! Are we all being bunnies for this event? Oh! I have just the thing for this. Armor enhancements seem to be disabled for this event anyways so it shouldn't matter if I remove it. She replaced Mac's armor in her inventory with her clothing. Something that looked like a cosplay for a maid girl with bunny ears. "You look cute like that, by the way, Mari!"

Spoiler

She was about to continue that conversation before the player who was leading the defense was smacked by a long wooden tendril. The player was slammed into a stone pillar and was unconscious but not dead. Thankfully, one of the other players had told one of her guild-mates to make sure that she was alright and safe - or no, he ran past her and left her alone cracked in the stone just below where she impacted. What a coward. That other player seemed to lead the charge. She was fine with that, being the most inexperienced player here. Best not to step on anyone's toes.

"Nee, no time to being gawking, unless we wanna end up like her." She pointed over to the paralyzed Zandra, who was sat there stuck in place. "Kakkugou!"

The axe was twice as heavy as her spear, making it difficult to get used to at first. She followed up on an attack as Raidou made his, cleaving the axe towards the huge ent. The blade of the weapon only met the dirt as she fell short of actually hitting it.

"Kusou... This weapon isn't as easy to wield as my lance." She mumbled to herself.

 Mari rolled her eyes as Raidou barked out orders at some kid; he pretty much scared him away. Seems like the red coated boy was still not too great with the whole 'social' thing - not that she could blame him too much. Mari wasn't exactly any better. At least he was keeping his distance. She still had a sour taste in her mouth from their last meeting.   Her eyes drifted to another girl, who had also picked a Warhammer, Mari gave a nod of approval to her.


Mari then turned to Mac; "Hey - hows about we both go for that Fall guy over there? I'll run in and attack it with this meaty ass thing, course with everything debuffed there's a heavy chance I might miss it." Mari grinned and snorted. "So you best hop to it if I do."  She said as she hefted the heavy warhammer over her shoulder - it really looked like she shouldn't be able to lift it, let alone bear its weight. "Then you go in and stun it."  She turned her eyes back to Yuki. "Hey, wanna work with us on the Fall Ent next round?" Mari asked.

"As long as we try and stun them, I think we should be safe, it might be good for us to try and attack different targets too - to keep the hate off Zandra."

With those suggestions Mari kicked off and ran forward - holding the hammer high over her head, she went to swing it - but it was heavier than she anticipated and fell just short of her target. "Damn..." She said with a hiss. So much for that.

Life watched as the rest of the players that showed up chose questionable attire, clearly he didn't get the memo. Though Mari of all people, squeezing into a bunny costume? "Ahem" Life cleared his throat and refocused on the task at hand, trying not to be distracted. Life turned to another familiar face, Yuki, also in a bunny costume. You can't be serious... Life kept searching, until he found the red swordsman, a familiar face. 

Life scratched his chin trying to think of where he had seen him before. Oh right, the essence of steel so long ago. Life decided to stick by the non-bunny costume wearers, hoping he wouldn't get stuffed in one himself. 

*grooowww*

A low pitched hum came from his side, three large treants split from a root which erupted from the earth beneath them emerged and came rushing toward the players. Seemed there would be no time for chatting just yet. Raidou was the first to strike, it seemed he was watching and waiting for them to spring forth while everyone else was distracted. The other players charged in ahead too, though only the red swordsman landed a blow so far though he did remember him specializing with straight swords. "Alright lets see what this dinky piece of metal is all about" Life joked as he readied the straight sword, there was something about using a different type of sword than the katana he was used too... it felt... off. As Life attacked, so was his aim, completely misjudging the timing of his swing and the force required to hit his target. Oops.

Looking at his stats, something was up. None of his enhancements from his equipment showed up in his Quick Display when he tried to get a good look at his stats, it was weird, all these four weapon choices were weird as well. He chuckled “Guess we’re all just going blind into this fight …” he said and braced his axe for the worst, “And thanks.” he said with a snicker to the comment she had on his outfit.

Mari arrived not long after Macradon had, she wasn’t ready to fight, not in that attire. That’s why Macradon insisted on her wearing the bunny ears and tail, just to be safe. Easter was closing in, so they had to prepare before any apocalyptic happening would begin. Looking over at the new pinkhead, Macradon waved back “Good to see you too.” he replied.

Suddenly out of nowhere, the battle began, no warnings whatsoever. The first engagement was a large root that struck Zandra, the next was the root splitting into enemies coming their way. Macradon watched as Zandra was slammed backwards and knocked prone, and what seemed to be knocked out as well. Her health had hit 0, but her body did not disperse, she was merely paralyzed while downed, this was weird, like some kind of sudden event going on.

The one with the sword was quick to bark orders at everyone, it sounded fine since they were going in blind, handling the situation, “Sounds like a solid plan, I’ll just overrule a bit myself and go for a the whole group, I want to test out as much as possible with as little time spent as I can!” Macradon replied and took a few steps before launching himself by the others, yeeting himself into the fray.

Landing in the middle of the pack of three ents Macradon would fire off a bad joke before launching his attack “Look at these trees.”. With that essential bad joke out of the way, Macradon began to swing with his axe. It was different to the sword in its balance point and point of impact, but the wide swings were very much akin to the wider sweeps he did with his greatsword, so he tried to translate as much of the movement as possible into his attack, sweeping and cleaving into all three of the enemies with a wide sweeping paralyzing attack.

Satisfied, the selection window vanished. A simple iron warhammer with a curved spike on the backside of the head manifested before her, and when she reached out to grasp it with both hands, the sudden weight almost set her toppling off the tall ruin. Heavy. She'd slipped on a pair of thin gloves but, as she took advantage of the short moment of calm before the approaching storm to get accustomed to her temporary weapon, she still felt a touch uncomfortable with the idea of rushing into battle without the usual gauntlets weighing down on her hands. 

Perhaps clubbing her opponents on the head would prove a simple enough task for a girl who was hopeless with held weapons.

Imagine playing whack-a-mole.

But with a bigger hammer. And a mole that could whack you right back, or maybe crush your head under its foot for good measure.

Mishiro less-than-gracefully skidded down the ruins with her hammer in one hand and the other extended for balance, leaving crumbling rocks in her wake. When she reached the base, she had to stumble a few steps forward to regain her balance. She dusted herself off, appearing largely unphased. If she could manage sliding down the rocky hill with hardly a screw-up, she could—

Thud-thud-thud.

A larger stone piece had peeled off the ruin and rolled down after her, disturbing more debris and sending slight tremors through the ground. She threw herself forward as the mini-avalanche crashed to a halt on the spot she had been standing in seconds ago. When the dust settled, the girl gave a small huff of embarrassment then strode over to the Trading Post's volunteer defenders.

Nothing to see here~.

In the center of attention was the frontliner, leader of the Aincrad Trading Post, Zandra. Mishiro inched close enough to hear her express how little she knew of the field boss coming their way. Hence, the call for help. It had summoned a fair amount of players, two players who confidently held their selected swords... and a man and two women in what appeared to be bunny outfits. Complete with the cute ears and fluffy tail and everything.

Mishiro opened her mouth.

Mishiro closed her mouth.

Nothing to see there, either.

[Hostile Encounter]

A large root exploded from the ground, rising meters tall and sending a shower of dirt to nearby players. Zandra raced to the front line of the defenders and held her staff up. Shifting into an imitation of the guild leader's stance, Mishiro watched as the root curled backwards for a moment then delivered a devastating blow against their first line of defense.

Her head snapped to follow the frontliner. Zandra slammed against a pillar, her health dropping to — zero. The Berserk Healer herself, taken out by one hit. Mishiro felt the cold chill of dread crawl up her spine, but unexpectedly, Zandra's motionless body didn't vanish. The symbol of a status effect floated over her HP bar, and as a player barked out orders, another rushed over to attend to her.

Pulse quickening, the girl turned her cold gray eyes to the nearest mob.

Bunny Suit A caught all three mobs in an AoE paralyze, leaving Spring Tree ripe for a clubbing. Awkwardly shifting her warhammer's weight from one side to the other, Mishiro spared no more hesitation and locked onto her target. She hefted the weapon high above her head and f-cking slammed the paralyzed tree to the ground.

The six players still at the battleground charged the trio of tree’s. Some of them landing hits on the ents, some don’t. The first strike hit the beautiful tree of the spring, starting to tick down its health. It didn’t took long time before another strike hit her. Thou something else also happened, a small part of the blue bar ticked down as well. It was followed by another attack that crushed more of its blue bar. And before the tree had any chance to counterattack, some of its bark shattered followed by an explosion of blue and white crystals as the tree’s health bar turned to nothing. Thou there was still two tree’s standing, some of their bark shattered as well, but they was still standing strong.

The Tree of the summer was the first to act, It laid his wise eyes on the axe wielding man and raised one of its thick arms. ‘’Too close.’’ He said with a voice so deep it was almost painful to listen to. The arm fell down and stroke the young man right between his bunnyears. He let out a deep rumble, almost like a laugh.

Whil the summer was focused on Macradon, The fall didn’t had the same feelings of revenge. With a sound like a storm blowing thru his beard of leaves, he slammed his heavy arms in the ground, making the earth shake. Nothing else happened for several seconds. Then, suddenly small vines bursted out from the ground. At least half a dozen around each player. Before they could react the roots slashed, pierced and slammed the players legs before they just as quick disappeared back into the ground.

As a bellowing laugh bled from the tree of the emerald canopy, denoted as <<Tree of Summer>> by Raidou's HUD before it took to a slam to Macradon's frame with a heavy oak appendage that tore a hefty sum from the guy's HP bar. This was a bittersweet victory, as one of the trees fell to a flash of shattering data and although the group was sustaining damage it seemed as though the one that lay on the brink of death seemed still intact with Raidou taking to checking her condition. The others took to the mobile wooden pillar with leaves of amber, and after it spits out a network of tendrils that buff against his feet it appeared as though this target was the correct one.

A shout toward the group again, his focus divided between them and the assailants "Agreed, we finish fall!"

ID# 138572 results: Battle: 3, Missed! (Sword - Attack #1 vs.Tree of the Fall)

Tearing away from the now slightly displaced ground from the cables that had done him harm, he moves to follow his own claim. The tree, however, notices his approach with another of these cables ripping free from beneath him and wrapping around the blade. This halts his momentum completely as the pending sword art is canceled and he's forced to rip the weapon away and fall back.

"Ahh... w-what the?" Mari tried to pull her leg free from the vines that had sprung forth from the ground - whatever they were, they were tugging and pulling, whipping back and forth - it didn't exactly hurt - but it wasn't really pleasant either. Mari swung her Warhammer into the ground and held onto its handle with both her hands, keeping a tight grip on it so the vines wouldn't pull her to the ground - but just as quickly as they came, they were gone.

Macradon had been attacked - but everyone else seemed more or less fine - they even had a general consensus on what to attack. That worked just fine for her.
She then hefted the Warhammer, carrying it with both hands as she gave it a few test swings. Mari was getting used to the weight now, she shifted her feet, grounding herself so she could take the brunt of any force thrown at her. Her teeth grit as she swung the large warhammer into the side of the wooden ent's left leg. Orange leaves cascaded down and around her as she took a few steps to the side - "Phew..." She grinned turning to Macradon - the tiny bunny ears still twitching with each movement of her head. "That thing really packs a punch."

The branches rising from the ground coiled around the bunny girl's leg. It scratched up one of her socks: Heresy! This was one of her favorite outfits, not that it would be difficult to fix or anything. The hefty axe gleamed off the sun and severed the branches connecting Yuki's leg to the ground.

"Muda da." The pink-haired bunny girl laughed following up behind Mari. "I'm not that easy to put down, silly tree!"

Her axe ripped through the air, and again, she obviously wasn't used to the stupid things minuscule reach. She was really beginning to miss her lance as the axe tore into the dirt in front of the huge tree's roots. She sighed and flashed Mari a smile.

"My accuracy still leaves something to be desired, hunh?" She laughed and backed up a bit.

A player he never seen before disabled and hit three trees at once with an impressive feat. Nice. And there it was, the tree of springs taken down by another mysterious player he'd never seen before. Impressive.. he wondered to himself the legitimacy of these weapons, while also wondering why none of his other gear was working properly. Seemed these bosses nullified his stats in some way, probably why these weapons were given to use. Life gripped onto the handle of his new weapon tightly, watching as the other players shifted their attention towards the tree of the fall after Raidou shouted to take it down. "R-right." Life followed after Yuki trying to get its attention after she missed, slipping under its legs and spinning one eighty while swinging the weight of the blade across its leg, cutting straight through its roots and bark. The tree let out a deafening hollow whisper in response to the attack.  "Hah that one looked like it hurt you piece of driftwood."

The first assault seemed to work out great, everyone went in deal good and heavy blows to the one marked as Tree of Spring, what disturbed Macradon a bit was that his Paralyze had no effect on the trees, like something was instead building up rather than actually paralyzing. He wasn’t sure what was going on and staggering a bit back after his attack and was equally retaliated on by the Tree of Fall as it slammed its giant tree fist into the bunny knight, pushing him several meters back from the heavy blow, dealing a good chunk of damage to him.

As he tried to recover his balance from the heavy shock, Macradon stumbled once again as vines grew everywhere and began lashing at everyone, he didn’t have time to do anything, he could react to anything, he was too occupied. He looked around and saw that people had begun assaulting the Tree of Fall. Mr. Bunny Knight stood back up from everything and went back into the fight, trying to fight back, but with the blows he had, there really wasn’t anything he could accomplish after his apparent fatigue and shock from the nearly two-shotting blow he just received.
