KMega6KMegacharacter swung his great sword and used three basic attacks; diagonal, horizontal, and thrust.
Among others, he has practiced these moves every day. He received a diligent training buff after performing the same action for at least an hour every day for thirty days as long as you train for at least once a week afterwards. Slightly increasing your training speed is a bonus for being a diligent player everyday. He would normally do this without using his enhanced strike buffs like fire and holy, as that drained his magic and stamina faster, but he was giving the soldiers a demonstration of his skills today. Each strike only added a small amount of damage to a strike at the level he was doing, but it was showy and effective as a motivator.
Xandor walked over to him after his training session and clapped his hands.
“Such skilled strikes! You must practice often.” (Xandor)
KMega wiped his face with a towel before responding.
“In combat, you may only get your first move out as planned. If that should fail, you need to be able to evolve. The great sword is my strongest weapon, but I don’t usually start with it, nor do I overly rely on it. If my great sword doesn’t work, then I use my short sword and shield.
If not them, I use my dagger. If I can’t use any of my weapons, then I use my fists and my feet.
If I can’t use my weapons or my body….” (KMega)
KMega then gave an evil smile before continuing.
“I might just have to get serious.” (KMega)
Xandor laughed before slapping KMega on the back.
“That’s the spirit. Youth these days don’t understand the concept of having multiple cards to play. Here; let me show you an old paladin trick.” (Xandor)
Xandor moved KMega to the side and showed him how to inject holy power into his armor and shield. The process wasn’t that hard to grasp, so anyone would be able to do it if they tried.
After being taught the trick, and a few other paladin skills like sacrifice, KMega treated the old paladin to a pitcher of beer before going back to his room and seeing Astrid7Astridcharacter sleeping soundly.
In the morning, KMega called Yirk to a private spot in the fortress after he noticed that he returned.
“I must apologize for being away for so long. I was…. considering the future.” (Yirk)
Yirk looked away from him almost ashamed.
“I turn thirty-eight this winter. My wife has passed, my son is gods know where, and I’m beginning to feel the years catch up to me. KMega, you have opened my eyes to many different things. I’m eternally grateful for what you’ve done for me, but I can’t chose you over Kieser anymore.” (Yirk)
KMega paused after hearing his words. He almost didn’t understand them.
“So, I’m going to the outpost with several other soldiers to prepare for a counterattack against the empire if all hope is lost. I’m going to train them like I trained you and Kieser, so when the empire declares war once again, we will strike back with such a force that we’ll drive a stake right into the heart of the empire.” (Yirk)
KMega stood up from his seat and walked over to Yirk before putting a hand on his shoulder.
“Take anyone that you think is worthy. You can also take any supplies and materials you need. I will be the kingdom’s shield until the very end, so go do what you got to do and show them what a scorned father is capable of.” (KMega)
Yirk nodded appreciatively. He didn’t think that KMega would give up on looking for Kieser either, so he knew that he would support his endeavor. In fact, he was even more surprised that KMega didn’t want to join him. He took a moment to think about before grabbed KMega’s hand that was on his shoulder and tapping it a few times.
“Thank you…” (Yirk)
Tears welled up in the eyes of the old knight.
“…You were always like a second son to me.” (Yirk)
KMega smiled before turning away.
“In another lifetime…., that may become true.” (KMega)
