Default Battle of Great Climb: Traps and escapes.

Raiden directed the men helping them to carry heavy stones. The crescent moon setting over the mountains. He had stripped his armor off. Sweat pouring from the exertion. The bamboo wall groaned under the weight of the rock pile.

(If you are going with Ren. You'll be at the spring at this point.)

_______________________________
A rumbling sound filled the lower valley. The sounds of hundreds of marching feet heading up. The rest of the Lion army in the pass had caught up with the advance party.

The rumbling sound was rather forboding, but Mizuki didn't really care at the moment. She was soaking up to her neck in the steaming water, enjoying the view of the night sky. The spring, illuminated only by the thin slice of the moon, concealed everything, so she had left her robes folded on the bank. She leaned back against a rock, closed her eyes, and smiled happily. Even Mr. Perfect couldn't spoil her mood now.

Kenren sat on the other side of the rock, soaking his feet in the steaming waters. He held a small knife, not even a tanto, and a tube of bamboo.

He had no idea why, but he was hollowing it out.

The monk ran up to Raiden, "Raiden-dono. I have done all I can with the men. The ones I could help have their treatments. The others..." He lowered his head, "I made sure were ok before they left us for good." Katsu looked back up. "What is next?"

Taken was sitting cross-legged a short distance away from the spring with his back towards it, and his eyes closed, lost in thought about the days events. He was searching desperately in his mind for a way that he may have prevented those deaths. A way that he may have helped those who died, but there was nothing.

A sigh escaped his lips quietly, but the sound of men's footsteps, faint on the wind, could be heard. At first he thought it might have been his mind torturing him with the sounds the lion had made when they marched upon the mountain before, but it persisted, light as ever. He shook his head and swallowed hard at the thought of more death, but stood all the same.

"It is time for us to return."

Mizuki looked up at him and scowled. God, damnit, the bastard found a way. She waded through the spring and grabbed her robes and tabi, dunking them in the spring and finally getting them clean. She waded back past a large rock protruding from one edge of the spring and stood on the bank behind it to conceal herself. She stared at the wet clothes, inspiration striking. She hung them from a tree branch and concentrated. A few minutes later, a ball of fire appeared in her hand. In the other, she summoned up a gust of air. She held the ball of fire between her robes and the air stream, quickly drying her garments. She put them back on and walked around the spring, slipping back into her zori and combing out her hair with her fingers.

(Bwahah, summon fire and air.)

Kuyuden had been meditating beside Kenren. A smell wafted on the breeze the smell of oiled steel. Kuyuden drew his sword and stood.

The black fletched arrow landed inches from his head.

He looked but could not see them in the low light.

The arrow had barely embedded itself in the stone when Kenren hurled himself aside, falling into the hot spring as he did. Cursing and spluttering as he did, he dove below the surface of the water, using his hollowed-out bamboo tube as a makeshift breathing tube.

Once there, he closed his eyes and opened his mind, probing the Void for the attackers...

Kuyuden ran into the darkness sword drawn. An arrow struck Kuyuden in the arm.

Another archer fired on Taken. (29+8=37 hit 6+4=10 damage) The arrow struck Taken in the shoulder.

Another arrow narrowly missed Kuyuden

Mizuki narrowly avoided being impaled one the shaft of a black fletched arrow.

The priestess yelped quietly and dove behind the meatshie-er, Taken for protection. The arrow sticking out of his shoulder was horrifying, but she knew that trying to pull it out and cast a spell right now would only make things worse.

Damn Kenren and his luck...she could jump back under the spring with a summon air spell, and considered that...

No. She would not be useless in front of Mr. Perfect. With an abbreviated, concise prayer to the gods, she cast the Fires of Purity at Kuyuden as hastily as she could.

Unfortunately, for all her panic and haste, the spell failed to work. Damn the gods.

"Chikuso! Yate zo!" she hissed, unconcerned that her fellow priests from back at the shrine would be absolutely horrified with her.
