Luck was her lover because if not for it, she'd have died in the storm that destroyed her tiny boat. Why had she been in the middle of the sea with her tiny boat, Amant was a little too hangover to remember. All that had mattered now was finding food, dry clothes, a dry towel (her fur was wet with the saltwater), and some more booze-- all things that money could buy. The one thing her broke character didn't have (along with everything else she needed with the money).

Walking through the dynamite-shaped island she spotted a merchant talking with a couple of men, and dwarfs. Immediately she'd approach the group as they moved from the merchant. Hoping to convince them to let her tag along she'd call out to them in the most friendly voice she could muster while playing a strum of the guitar to entice them to pay her some attention. This trick was quite useful in getting attention. People always responded to harmonious sounds even if just for a second.

"oi, oi, what yall up to?"
"Hmm? What's that sound..?" Mae said causing her hornet to turn and face the newcomer who had graced them with her presence. Following in suit, her BFFs also turned to follow the sound of the melody that began to play from behind them. The sound was quite enticing to the dwarves who loved the sound of beautiful music and they seemed to float on the notes that played as they investigated the source of the melody.

"Hmph! That anyway to introduce yourself?" Mae asked the Panda Mink curiously, peering into her large pink eyes and looking while she seemed equally curious about the guitar that was being held by her. Was it worth anything? MAe didn't know but it seemed like an interesting enough item. Secretly, she plotted on how'd she get her hands on it. Meanwhile, X.O. and Bacchus also decided to see who was causing all the commotion and were surprised to find another Mink here on Centuarea beside Battle Beast. They had not run across many minks in their travels and argurably, Thokk was the first of X.O. had ever encountered.

"What'd ya want, were a bit busy if you couldn't tell." X.O. reply as he made his way through the myriad of dwarves that were now attempting to surround the newcomer, all equally curious as to what she was up to. X.O. wasn't in the best of moods, but he couldn't say he wasn't interested in the melodies coming from the guitar.

Thokk stop and watched as X.O interacted with one of his kind. X.O was far too polite for Thokk's liking, the Mink would have killed her for following them, he was growing soft. Ryusui's eyes widened as he eyed her guitar, wanting it for himself. As Ryusui begun to walk in her direction Battle Beast would pull him back by his shirt before eyeing him down, then turning towards the other mink.

"We're pirates. We could kill you where you stand. You should turn around and go back to wherever you came from.

Thokk was starting to grow upset with how friendly his crew was being with this stranger especially when they had business to attend to.

The sudden attention charmed the panda girl. Now that the party was facing her she could get a good look at the lot of them. It was here where she realized these individuals were criminals. Their very bizarre outfits and the fact that their faces looked quite villainous she concluded that the group (excluding the dwarfs who were very adorable) were criminals of some sort.

"Hmph! That anyway to introduce yourself?"
is that anyway to respond to a greeting the panda girl thought to herself. But failed to relay this remembering that she needed these people for food, and money, so staying on their good side would be worth.


"What'd ya want, were a bit busy if you couldn't tell."

Another horrible reply to a greeting. But one that provided some information all be it nothing to work with. All she could put together from this was, they were doing something quite illegal, now what it was puzzled her.

"We're pirates. We could kill you where you stand. You should turn around and go back to wherever you came from.

Confirmed. Pirates, and from the look of them, not too popular. Just her favorite subjects.

Still playing her guitar she'd reply nicely.

"my name is amant. i am also a pirate... well to be precise a criminal. so i cant really go to the authorities for help. but from one pirate to another how about we help each other! you bring me some food, booze, extra clothing, protection, money and me provide you music. win-win?"

As you could tell, her idea of fairness was... questionable.

Examining the newcomer, there was a certain air about the stranger that began to draw X.O. to her. Maybe it was the melody strumming from the guitar, or maybe it was the comical idea of a fair trade Amant had. Either way, X.O. was intrigued with the Panda woman. Whatever it was, he knew he wanted her to come along and provide a bit of relief from the hard road that was ahead of the crew. Another Mink joining the crew couldn't hurt either. X.O. had witnessed the power of Battle Beast first hand.

"If you're a pirate, then join my crew. We could use more of that music your playing to lighten the mood on the seas."

"I don't like her! I'll be keeping my eye on you."
Mae would chime in as her and BFFs began to swarm around to throughly examine Amant closely. Mae trying to hide her jealously X.O. was taking interest in another woman She didn't like competition and quickly flew off to rejoin X.O's side.

"Well, I think she's pretty cute!" Yori would announced as she smiled big and winked at Amant having her companion land on Amant's shoulder.

"I do hope you don't take Queen Mae's word's too harshly. She's not usually like this." Dez would chime in and she waved as she flew off and rejoined the other dwarves which were now crowding around Amant.

Ling simply nodded, she didn't say much, she was always the wariest of the bunch. She remained skeptical of Queen Mae's decision to travel the seas and expose themselves so blatantly, but she was a loyal follower.

Thokk scoffed at X.O and his dwarves before turning back. This person came out of nowhere and he was so willing to just accept them into the crew without knowing them that well, or knowing what they're capable of.

"Let's put a pin in this for now, X.O we have to go and finish what we were doing. This one can stay here and await our return if they truly wish to join us.



The crew would continue onward to the mines, arriving with everyone but Raizen who remained on the ship. Ryusui stayed behind a few steps and hid with his guns, and would pop out incase something happened.

"ATTENTION. WE ARE THE BLACK BEAST PIRATES AND WE'VE COME TO TAKE EVERYTHING YOU OWN, INCLUDING YOUR LIVES IF NEEDED."

Thokk stood next to X.O and the rest of the crew would be a few steps behind them, awaiting further instruction.

Despite the lion's request for her to stay, Amant followed closely behind the group ignoring his request. She was not surprised they let her join, she tended to be easily befriendable. Now as she trailed them, she began to note the dynamic within it. XO, the captain, and she assumed the Lion mink to be vice or something of that nature based on his movement. The rest of the crew was a bit of a guess for her. She couldn't quite guess what they were.

"ATTENTION. WE ARE THE BLACK BEAST PIRATES AND WE'VE COME TO TAKE EVERYTHING YOU OWN, INCLUDING YOUR LIVES IF NEEDED."

Hearing Thokk's statement, Amant would immediately change the strum of her guitar to that of a more aggressive tune. She'd then whisper to the group.

"lets not kill all of them? i'd like a few for some experiments!"

"At Once, Our Queen!"


Plundering. It was what the Black Bees Dwarves did best and was something they took pleasure in doing. Mae and her BFFs quickly took to ordering the tribe to set the stage and remain discreet as they placed several of their specially made bombs throughout the grove.

It seemed they had arrived at the Grove at an opportune moment. A large wagon of mined material was being careful transported through the forest. It was their objective to see just what the spoils of that haul were and take it for themselves.

Two of Each Bee Bomb Has Been Placed Throughout Guy Fawkes Grove.

Battle at Centaurea Mine! The Black Beast Pirates Strike!

You must be registered for see images
The Centaurea Mine is an important location under the control of the Revolutionary Army because of its valuable resource. A prominent area for gunpowder production, the regime depends on the operations in the mines to produce material needed to combat against the Marine Corps. Important to the cause, the army has stationed many troops within the daily life of the island as well the work force behind the mining. This allowed the regime to maintain a proper control and established protective measures should the island be attacked. Today was unfortunate considering battle was about to break.​



Part # One: Seizing the Powder
→ The Black Beast Pirates have One [1] Post ( Separate or Together ) to Do Whatever After Announcing Themselves. This Can Include Activating Style Techniques | Traits | Personas | etc. Afterwards, Revolutionaries will Respond.​

As battle beast stood by waiting for a response to his declaration he would start to prepare for battle. Battle Beast would exhale deeply, another way of further mentally readying himself when battle was expected. Ryusui would remain hidden, his rifle lay gently on against his chest as he begun to clear his mind so that his shot would be steady, his pistol sat on his waist. His ears ready to pick up any sign that the battle had begun, until then he remained. Thokk would look around at his allies, seeing the other Mink had followed them he would grow upset, however he saw this as a good opportunity to show this person that the pirate life was not one of all fun and games if these people were to respond with violence.



Ryusui uses 1 support card to stay hidden in cover.
Ryusui uses 1 support card to activate "Snipe the target"


[Name: Snipe the Target
Item Name: Any Ranged Weaponry
Type: Supportive
Rank: E
Scale: Depends
Description: This technique allows the character to concentrate their tracking ability onto one target and wait patiently. The character chooses to wait because they are lining the best shot they could possibly take, waiting to snipe their target in question.

Note: Each Turn the Character Does Not Use their Ranged Weaponry, One [1] Bonus Damage is Accumulated. This Style Technique Maintains a Move Slot ( and Occupies the Card Spent ) and Can Only be Activated in Battle.


Battle Beast possesses the following items.


Item Name: Ниггер остается защищенным
Item Grade: D
Item Perk(s):
  • Ниггер остается защищенным Possesses Six [6] Health Points
  • Ниггер остается защищенным Possesses Three [3] Damage Shaving
Item Description: This is a nearly full body suit of armor made to keep Battle Beast more protected in the heat of battle.



Item Name: Вы, ниггеры, в беде
Item Grade: Meito | Famous Weapon | Great Grade
Item Perk(s):
  • +4 Damage Points to Style Techniques and Free-Form Actions. Allows the Wielder to Spend Attack ( Clash ) or Block Cards ( to Attack or Block Targets ) without Style Techniques, Respectively.
  • Вы, ниггеры, в беде Can Induce the Fractured ( Broken ) Bone Status Effect and Bleeding Status Effect. Due to the Weight of the Weapon, the Condition to Induce this Status Effect has been Decreased by One [1] Points of Needed Damage Magnitude.
  • Вы, ниггеры, в беде Possesses the Ironhide Keyword Which Converts Half the Weapon's Health Pool into Damage Shaving Magnitude. This Damage Shaving Cannot be Halved ( Only Completely Bypassed or Nullified ).
  • Вы, ниггеры, в беде Grants the Nonexistent Keyword to Attack and Clash Cards Due to the Design of the Weapon. Forged to Bolster Density, this Famous Weapon Can Still Induce the Fractured ( Broken ) Bonus Status Effect Whenever It Strikes a Blocking Target. The Condition to Trigger that Status Effect On a Blocking Target is Increased by Two [2] Points of Needed Damage Magnitude. This Keyword is Deactivated When Interacting with Sources w/ the Monstrosity or Indestructible Keywords.
Item Description: Вы, ниггеры, в беде is a golden, small mace with protruding spikes. Utilizing this Famous Weapon ( without the proper attribute layout requirements ) Drains an Additional Eight [8] Points of Stamina Whenever a Card is Spent.

X.O. walked forward until he was about ten meters away from the group and began to speak calmly to the group of people they had just encountered. His time in the revolutionary army gave X.O. the knowledge necessary to know that this transport was probably on its way out to sea.

"What we mean to say is, this can go easily or hard for you all. All we want is a few questions answered and a couple shipments of the gunpowder you guys are producing here. I'm sure you understand. We aren't here to barter. " X.O. would say this as his darkness unfurled and unleashed enough ranged weaponry to equip all of Mae's Dwarves with them. (50 ranged weapons given to Mae's Personal Militia. )

Mae and her Dwarves would operate in tandem flying upon their companions in intricate patterns as they spoke after X.O.

"We're all friends here right?" Mae would say her voice carrying towards the group in a friendly manner in the hopes to convince the group before them to do this the easy way. =

"You guys are actually pretty cute! Lets play nice? " Dez would announce to the group, as she flew upon her companion Spike, attempting to charm the group before them.

"We promise to not hurt you." Ling would say to the group alongside her friends. She flew on her companion Stripe, though Ling knew she was ready to take everything these guys had by force.

Meanwhile Bacchus wasn't paying attention, he was too busy guzzling from his container holding his sake, the taste sending a shiver down his spine. Just how he liked it.




X.O has One [1] Support Card Spent and Occupied to Activate Yami Yami no Mi, 50 Ranged Weapons Released To Equip Mae's Personal Militia. ( 2 Ranged Weapons Remain Stored / 54 Swords Remain Stored )

Amant was out of her nature. Not really having trained herself on combat nor held much tools for combat she'd instead use the initiation of the crew as a perfect diversion to sneak off and head into the town as if a regular commoner. Her goal here could be boiled to two main points:
1) Steal from those incapable to fight back (old women, children, the disabled)
2) Take any wounded from battle so she could begin her "musical experiments upon them".

So upon's Ling's statement of peace, Amant would peace out from the group and head off into the towns if running away in fear. Once lost within the town she'd beeline to the nearest garment shop, break in and attempt and stealing any garments of value.

Battle at Centaurea Mine! The Black Beast Pirates Strike!

You must be registered for see images
The Centaurea Mine is an important location under the control of the Revolutionary Army because of its valuable resource. A prominent area for gunpowder production, the regime depends on the operations in the mines to produce material needed to combat against the Marine Corps. Important to the cause, the army has stationed many troops within the daily life of the island as well the work force behind the mining. This allowed the regime to maintain a proper control and established protective measures should the island be attacked. Today was unfortunate considering battle was about to break.​



Part # One: Seizing the Powder
→ As the Black Beast Pirates entered the mines and issuing commands, the miners began to act hesitant to move – so even pretending to be fearful. The miners were under the illusion that all of them were honest citizens that came for honest work. Never have they been attacked by Pirates before, but half the work force for today were secretly revolutionaries. They had been assigned to assimilate into the daily life of Centaurea to ensure the community held an element of surprise regarding their defense measures. After the pirates issued their commands, the revolutionaries quickly pounced the small militia of dwarves. A swift preemptive assault, the revolutionaries figured battle was going to erupt and needed to turn the tides in their favor – considering their army resources were not within the mines.


Plot Battle Commences

The Black Beast Pirates Battle Card Setup: Battle Beast | Ryusui | X.O | Bacchus | Mae Can Perform Two [2] Moves Per Turn. Each of the Cult Following NPCs and Companions Can Perform One [1] Move Each Per Turn.

There are Fifty [50] Revolutionaries. Due to the Disguise, the Revolutionaries Possess the Assassin Trait. All Enemies Possess Six [6] Speed Magnitude in Attack and Movement. The Fifty [50] Revolutionaries Can Perform Two [2] Moves Per Turn and Can Spend One [1] Reaction Card. [ The Revolutionaries Spend Two [2] Block Cards this Turn ]

The Attack ( or Support ) Sequence:
In the Circumstance that Fighter A is Equal in Movement Speed, Then Zero [0] Failure is Added Equal to the Official Roll. In the Circumstance that Fighter A is Lower in Movement Speed by One [1] Point, Then One [1] Failure is Added to the Official Roll. In the Circumstance that Fighter A is Higher in Movement by Two [2] or More Points, Then the Attack is Deemed an Automatic Success. The Same Check will Occur During the Fighter B’s Turn to Act. The Maximum Amount of Damage the Platoon Can Cause is the Standard Ten [10] Points ( Not Excluding Possible Bonuses ), However this Requires at Least Ten [10] NPCs of the Platoon to be Conscious. This Official Roll’s Standard is One [1] Success and One [1] Failure ( Before Movement Speed is Factored ).

The Dodge Sequence:
During Plot Battle Rubric, the Character Must Spend a Dodge Card Preemptively. This Means the Character or Platoon Must Spend that Card on Their Turn to Prepare the Dodge, otherwise that Character or Platoon will be Automatically be Damaged. This Situation is Referred to the Character or Platoon Forfeiting the Right to Dodge. Whenever a Dodge Card is Spent, one [1] Theoretical Point is Gifted to the Movement Speed if the Official Roll was Deemed an Automatic Success. During Circumstances the Dodge Card is Spent and the Official Roll was not Deemed Automatically Successful, that Fighter is Granted a Second Roll Attempt if the First Failed. Platoons Cannot Spend Dodge Cards.

The Block Sequence:
During Plot Battle Rubric, the Character or the Platoon Must Spend a Block Card Preemptively. This Means the Character or Platoon Must Spend that Card on Their Turn to Prepare the Block, otherwise that Character or Platoon will not reduce the oncoming damage magnitude. Whenever a Block Card is Spent, the Character Will Defend Against the Enemy’s Attack ( or Support ) Cards. In the Situation, the Platoon Spends a Block Card, the Damage Magnitude will be Blocked on the Number of Soldiers Remaining. The Blocking Damage Depends on the Platoon's Max Damage Output Per Card Spend.​

Each Turn ( Post ), Choose Whether to Assault ( By Spending One Attack Card ), Prepare to Defend ( Spending One Block Card ), or Prepare to Disengage ( Spending One Dodge Card ), or Attempt to Retreat | Move to Another Battlefield | or Anything Not Considered the Other Cards ( Spending One Support Card ). During the Plot Battle Mode, the Special Cards in the Battle Deck Cannot be Access Unless the Card's Effect is Targeting a Named Character Only ( Excluding Map and Reaction Cards ). The Stamina Exhaustion's Rulings Remain the Same.

→ Regardless of the Attack Described, X Damage in the Attack Card Will Allow the Character or Platoon of Soldiers to Damage X Amount of Enemy Targets with One Card Spent. The Character Can Choose Whether They Use Single Strikes or Multiple Strikes to Deal the Damage. The Enemy Group Strike Differently: When Deemed Successful the Number of Strikes are Considered Multiple, Consecutive Strikes. When Deemed Automatically Successful, the Strikes Occur Simultaneously.

Within a moment all the dwarves within Mae's army were taken out, their little voices quickly silenced. Battle beast had been prepared for battle but so sudden?

"So it's no respect huh?"

Nevertheless it was time to battle. The mink would charge forward, swinging his mace wildly hoping to take down a few of the assassins in retaliation, however he swung at areas that would not result in their deaths. Ryusui would hate to lose out on more people to add to his roster, even tho they were enemies at the moment. Ryusui would remain hidden behind the cover, he glanced for a brief moment to gauge the situation at hand before returning back to safety. He felt like the others could handle themselves right now, and if not he could use the lack of attention to escape and get Raizen for additional help.




Battle Beast uses 1 attack card.
Battle Beast preemptively uses 1 dodge card.

Ryusui will continue to stay in cover
Ryusui preemptively uses 1 dodge card.



CHANGES: I want the 10 TP for developmental week for battle beast. I want 1 AP for Ryusui still.

" Hmph. Weaklings." Mae sighed as the lesser of her tribe was extinguished. However, while her King still stood, she would be sure to press onwards and ensure he was triumphant in his endeavors. After all, that was her rightful duty as his self-proclaimed Queen. Taking one of the Flash Dials the crew had recently procured, it was now time to test it in action. The bright flash of light would be released outwards towards the Revolutionaries, with the flash pointed in the opposite direction, the Black Beasts Pirates would remain unaffected by it, as its intent was to quickly blind the Revolutionaries to the all out assault upon them.

Bacchus had just finished wiping away the moisture from his lips after guzzling a healthy portion of his sake. He giggled as his belly was now warm and fuzzy as his special Sake quickly ran its course. He would retaliate against the Revolutionaries as well issuing a flurry of seven total strikes, his Drunken Fury in full swing.

"The Cap'ns here was being nice o' nuff to rob ya politely, ya bastards!"
X.O. simply shook his head as his darkness continued to unfurl and spread across the ground towards the Revolutionaries and their Gunpowder that the crew was here to acquire. X.O. didn't want to harm the once former allies of his and was quick to ask the Revolutionaries to stand down.

"I'm sorry. This really ain't how we wanted things to go, but we're gonna be the one's to avenge Ohara. I once thought the Revolutionary Army was actually strong enough to make a difference. But now... Looks like I was right in going my own way. Sucks I was completely wrong about you guys. Please...as a former Revolutionary, I'm asking you all to please not get in our way."

Meanwhile, Raizen sat in the crow's nest of the Black Pearl, peering out at the horizon. He was growing tired of not knowing his young brother's wellbeing. He hated the fact that X.O. and the Cattle had yet made gains towards his pursuit of the young master. It crossed his mind numerous times about setting off on his own accord to return his brother to his rightful place and under his watchful eye. However, he also realized that X.O. and the young master's livestock was his best chance at seeing his brother once again. Trusting outsiders wasn't one of Raizen strong suits. However, he recalled X.O.'s promise, and though fleeting, a ray of hope lied within his heart that his student would be true to his word. With new convictions, Raizen jumped down from the crow's nest to the deck of the ship landing almost with no impact. He figured he would spend his time trying to get more acquainted with human words, having seen X.O.'s crumpled up newspaper on the deck of the ship, Raizen picked it up and did his best to teach himself how to speak and read properly.




Mae Spends One Support Card To Activate A Flash Dial Against the Revolutionaries.
Mae Preemptively Spends One Dodge Card.

Flash Dial: The Flash Dial is a shell that can store and release bright flashes of light. Each Battle or Plot Point the Flash Dial Begins with Three [3] Activation Available until the Dial is used to store more light sources. When combined into an Approved Item, the Flash Dial’s Scaling and Absorption Power can be raised. One [1] Support or Block Card ( Style Technique Not Required ) is required to Release or Store a Light Source, which nullifies the effects of said light and replenish the activation amount. This flash possesses scaling equal to Epsilon Rank, evenly split in volume. The Flash Dial alone can absorb a Light Source of D-Rank ( D-Grade ) Quality. Regardless of how the Flash Dial is used, it can cause the Blindness Status Effect for One [1] Turn.
X.O. Spends and Maintains One [1] Support Card to activate X'd Out against the 50 Revolutionaries & Gunpowder Shipment and the dropped weaponry of Mae's Dwarves.
X.O. Preemptively Spends One Block Card, with 5 Pirate Swords Attached.

Name: X'd Out
Devil Fruit Name: Yami Yami no Mi
Type: Supportive
Rank: E-O (G-rank)
Scale: Depends
Description: X.O spreads his darkness over a large area and absorbs anything that he chooses, but must have interacted with the darkness, much like a black hole. Once absorbed, the target is subjected to a large amount of gravity and crushed. This technique can trigger Seizing Orders against affected targets that are unable to escape the darkness.

Note: This Technique May Be Maintained by Occupying the Support Cards used to perform this technique. Applicable Objects and Targets are Stored and Documented via the Yami Yami no Mi's Persist Trait.

Prize Earned​
Trait EffectsRestrictions
The Character Gains the Effects of the Reckless Persona Once Per Battle and is Granted the Free-Use Keyword. The Effects of Personas or Style Techniques that Influence this Character's Personas or Attributes ( INT and RES ) are Negated and Redirected Back ( Excluding Effects that Deal Damage ). Melee Related Style Techniques or Free-Form Actions are Granted the Raw Power Keyword.​
Bios Cannot have the Assassin, Preemptive Motives, Future Sight, Trap Artist, or Methodical Traits.​

Martial Arts Name: Drunken Fist
Martial Arts Bonus: Martial Related Style Techniques and Free-Form Actions are Granted the Flurry & Weak Point Keywords.
Martial Arts Description: This style of martial arts is extremely unorthodox because it can only be utilized when practitioner is intoxicated. This style of combat involves irregular and erratic movement and attack patterns, which promotes a martial art that lacks visible warning for the opponent to defend against the unconventional motions. Because of the drunken nature, the user of this martial art often opts for palm strikes since it requires the least amount of effort to perform when striking.

Martial Arts Breakdown: Because this martial art is extremely erratic and manifests from the character unrestrained physicality ( which is brought forward due to their intoxication liberating them of all conscious thought ) the practitioner can strike with such unhindered force. This striking ability is the reason the Flurry Keyword and Weak Point Keyword are granted to Martial Related Style Techniques and Free-Form Actions.


Item Description: Bacchus’ Sake is an incredible strong concoction of liquor cultivated with his own selection of ingredients. The alcohol content within this sake is so potent that only someone of his caliber ( possesses the Drunken Fury ) trait can consume the liquor without adverse effects. Those that drink it without his aptitude for liquor will immediately become drunk and the conditions attached to being drunk ( the failures and stamina cost to remove such failures ) are doubled.

Battle at Centaurea Mine! The Black Beast Pirates Strike!

You must be registered for see images
The Centaurea Mine is an important location under the control of the Revolutionary Army because of its valuable resource. A prominent area for gunpowder production, the regime depends on the operations in the mines to produce material needed to combat against the Marine Corps. Important to the cause, the army has stationed many troops within the daily life of the island as well the work force behind the mining. This allowed the regime to maintain a proper control and established protective measures should the island be attacked. Today was unfortunate considering battle was about to break.​



Part # One: Seizing the Powder
→ The Black Beast Pirates had successfully apprehended the in-disguised soldiers with ease. The remaining soldiers are left blinded as their comrades drew their last breath from the assault of Bacchus Furyman. One of the soldiers withdrew their Den Den Mushi and contacted the base that lies in secret on Centaurea Island. He would begin to shout in pain and fear, expressing that they were being attacked by some pirates and their interest was securing the gunpowder the mine had been extracting. [ Reinforcements will Arrive in Two [2] Rounds | In the Circumstance that the Black Beast Pirates Leave the Scene - the Duration Extends to Three [3] Rounds | In the Circumstance that the Black Beast Pirates Leave Centaurea Island, Revolutionaries will Continue the Chase ]


Plot Battle Commences

The Black Beast Pirates Battle Card Setup: Battle Beast | Ryusui | X.O | Bacchus | Mae Can Perform Two [2] Moves Per Turn. Each of the Cult Following NPCs and Companions Can Perform One [1] Move Each Per Turn.

There are Fourteen [14] Revolutionaries. Due to the Disguise, the Revolutionaries Possess the Assassin Trait. All Enemies Possess Six [6] Speed Magnitude in Attack and Movement. The Fourteen [14] Revolutionaries Can Perform Two [2] Moves Per Turn and Can Spend One [1] Reaction Card. [ The Revolutionaries Spend Two [2] Block Cards this Turn ]

The Attack ( or Support ) Sequence:
In the Circumstance that Fighter A is Equal in Movement Speed, Then Zero [0] Failure is Added Equal to the Official Roll. In the Circumstance that Fighter A is Lower in Movement Speed by One [1] Point, Then One [1] Failure is Added to the Official Roll. In the Circumstance that Fighter A is Higher in Movement by Two [2] or More Points, Then the Attack is Deemed an Automatic Success. The Same Check will Occur During the Fighter B’s Turn to Act. The Maximum Amount of Damage the Platoon Can Cause is the Standard Ten [10] Points ( Not Excluding Possible Bonuses ), However this Requires at Least Ten [10] NPCs of the Platoon to be Conscious. This Official Roll’s Standard is One [1] Success and One [1] Failure ( Before Movement Speed is Factored ).

The Dodge Sequence:
During Plot Battle Rubric, the Character Must Spend a Dodge Card Preemptively. This Means the Character or Platoon Must Spend that Card on Their Turn to Prepare the Dodge, otherwise that Character or Platoon will be Automatically be Damaged. This Situation is Referred to the Character or Platoon Forfeiting the Right to Dodge. Whenever a Dodge Card is Spent, one [1] Theoretical Point is Gifted to the Movement Speed if the Official Roll was Deemed an Automatic Success. During Circumstances the Dodge Card is Spent and the Official Roll was not Deemed Automatically Successful, that Fighter is Granted a Second Roll Attempt if the First Failed. Platoons Cannot Spend Dodge Cards.

The Block Sequence:
During Plot Battle Rubric, the Character or the Platoon Must Spend a Block Card Preemptively. This Means the Character or Platoon Must Spend that Card on Their Turn to Prepare the Block, otherwise that Character or Platoon will not reduce the oncoming damage magnitude. Whenever a Block Card is Spent, the Character Will Defend Against the Enemy’s Attack ( or Support ) Cards. In the Situation, the Platoon Spends a Block Card, the Damage Magnitude will be Blocked on the Number of Soldiers Remaining. The Blocking Damage Depends on the Platoon's Max Damage Output Per Card Spend.​

Each Turn ( Post ), Choose Whether to Assault ( By Spending One Attack Card ), Prepare to Defend ( Spending One Block Card ), or Prepare to Disengage ( Spending One Dodge Card ), or Attempt to Retreat | Move to Another Battlefield | or Anything Not Considered the Other Cards ( Spending One Support Card ). During the Plot Battle Mode, the Special Cards in the Battle Deck Cannot be Access Unless the Card's Effect is Targeting a Named Character Only ( Excluding Map and Reaction Cards ). The Stamina Exhaustion's Rulings Remain the Same.

→ Regardless of the Attack Described, X Damage in the Attack Card Will Allow the Character or Platoon of Soldiers to Damage X Amount of Enemy Targets with One Card Spent. The Character Can Choose Whether They Use Single Strikes or Multiple Strikes to Deal the Damage. The Enemy Group Strike Differently: When Deemed Successful the Number of Strikes are Considered Multiple, Consecutive Strikes. When Deemed Automatically Successful, the Strikes Occur Simultaneously.

Battle Beast glanced over to Bacchus as he managed to drop several of the assassin, a once former enemy now turned ally was showing his worth, right now his worth surpassed that of everyone that stood on this battlefield. X.O managed to absorb the gun powder in his darkness, from Thokk's perspective they had won, what they came for was accomplished and all that was left to do was to escape with their lives.

"RAWWWWR! We've gotten what we came for! Everyone head back to the ship!"

Battle beast ran towards Ryusui, whose positioning was also in the direction of the ship. The Navigator would extend his arm out as Thokk grabbed him and tossed him over his shoulder. Battle Beast was far faster than the Navigator and was strong enough to carry him without being weighed down. The mace was carried in his other hand, Ryusui hanging over his right shoulder with him facing Thokk's flank. With his gun in hand he was able to shoot if needed. Thokk would quickly glance back and forth as he ran to ensure he could respond if an attack was sent his way.



Battle Beast Uses 1 support card to begin escaping with Ryusui.
Battle Beast preemptively uses 1 dodge card.

The shouts for reinforcements could be heard as the remaining revolutionaries succumbed to the tremendous power of the Yami Yami no Mi. However, with those shouts, the Gunpowder Shipment had been successfully absorbed into the darkness as well. X.O. would quickly leave the scene alongside his crew. They had what they had come for and now it was time to take quickly to the seas and move on with their journey to find Ugin.

"They've called reinforcements, let's leave quickly..."

Mae cursed she had to leave the dead bodies of her tribesman, but she knew it was time to leave as per her King's wishes. She cursed her powerlessness to save her tribesman lives from the unexpected assault from the men they had decided to rob. This was the first encounters the Black Bees had ever had outside their home. These were nothing like the drunks who they were used to stealing from. She realized she still had much to learn if she was going to lead X.O. to his every hope and dream.

The Black Beast Pirates hurriedly made their way to the ship, X.O. only could pray they could make it out to sea before the eventual reinforcements surrounded the crew. It was a daring attempt to escape, but for now it seemed like the coast was clear. As they exited the mine they would be back in the grove heading south back along the initial path they had taken through the forest.

"We probably don't have much time to get back to the ship before we find ourselves surrounded, we're gonna have to hurry and make a mad dash for it.This island's supposed to be Revolutionary sanctioned from what I remember, and we probably just awoke a hornet's nest. "

"King X.O., Queen Mae, allow us to stay behind with our fallen brothers and sisters. I'll do what I can to keep the enemy at bay. Whatever happens...Please both of you, escape alive. "

"Ling, you can't do this! You're all coming with us!"

"No my queen, you must understand we want this. we'll get revenge for them all"

"Let's go Mae, we don't have time for this. We gotta go..."


Mae's eyes welled up with tears while Ling quickly turned away from her Queen, too ashamed to face her in what could possibly have been their final goodbye. Ling's companion as loyal as ever decided it too would stay behind, ready to lay down it's life for the Queen as well. The other Black Bees knew exactly what Ling was going through, and they too began to have tears well up in their eyes, however they turned and stayed with Ling and decided they would make it possible for them to escape to the sea. They'd see each other again, one way or another. In this life or the next.

With Ling, Dez, Yori, and their companions quickly fading from view, the remaining Black Beast Pirates continued onwards to the ship ready to make the most of Ling's sacrifice. Ling would utilize her size to remain hidden from view while her companion would begin to scan the grove for any oncoming threats

Meanwhile, Raizen had begun to grow irritated at how long the whole ordeal was taking. The longer they took, the less time they spent searching for the Young Lord. As Raizen walked to the bow of the ship, he overlooked Centaurea Island and snarled as he still didn't see X.O. and the others at all. If it took any longer, Raizen wouldnt hesitate to drag X.O. back to the ship in order to make him continue course for Ugin.




Having the Cult Followers and their Companions stay back.
