|Grumblejack roars fiercely as he hurls the body of the beast aside and finally rises once more to his feet, anger and bloodlust suffusing him. Scooping up his mighty axe, he roars a challenge at the remaining foe but it falls on indifferent ears|
Reposition. Taunt (action fails)
| Seeing one of the great shaggy beasts fall, Aiden is filled with determination to end the fight quickly. In one smooth move he places his shield on the opposite shoulder while shifting his stance so that side is facing the remaining daemon, then leaps at the daemon shield first, shifting as much of his weight behind it as he can as well as aiming it as high on the daemon as he can.|
Unfortunately his charge is met with a large dismissive backhand slap against his shield that sends the fallen knight spinning off into the wall and thence onto his knees with a thunderous clash of metal against stone.
Bullrush fails; reposition 5' and sprawled
| The remaining creature seems momentarily torn about what it should do -- advance towards the one near the altar, strike the one it's just floored, and see to the ogre are all valid options. But it settles on 'Return the favour of killing my companion' and rounds on Creamor.|
As had Grumblejack it roars, but this isn't a challenge. Rather it's a threat of violent and prolonged death, a threat that hits home on its intended target but perhaps too well. The cringe it induces in the devil man pulls him narrowly but sufficiently out of the way of the bolt of crackling energy that follows the roar, leaving him slightly singed but unharmed.
Threaten: 28 vs 24, success. Inflict 5 stress damage.
Attack: Lightning bolt. Misses
| The memory of the feeling of the demon's heart bursting is a bastion against the menace offered by Creamor's foe and he clutches to it. "Come Grumblejack!" he cries boldly. "Let's not let this other one feel lonely!"|
Charging forward, the devil-man sinks his fangs into suddenly vulnerable daemonic flesh.
The bite delivers 10 damage
I recently saw Disney's CG Jungle Book (okay, Mowgli's real, but he doesn't count). And I consider it epic.
This needs to be doable in Fantasy Craft!
So I am giving myself the task of making it so. Fortunately I started a long time ago. Also the Warg exists, negating the need for me to make a Wolf (and providing the basis for a Hyena feat*). Of course given Species Feats I don't need to make every kind of animal their own full entry.
Hopefully in time this will be worthy of one of those fancy PDFs.
There actually I'd a way to do just that within the bounds of the rules: be the DM, and give your BBEG the Everlasting quality. Of course, you should never put something g like that in the hands of a player.
We're still unsure. Mistborn House War and Nosh! are taking priority in the queue, but we generally don't update on this because a) our schedule shifts all the time, and b) we don't particularly like bringing non-updates just to get peoples' hopes up or invite questions as to our decision-making process. It's on the schedule, but until Pat's schedule clears up a bit more there will be no progress.
