was an interesting read all around.
Congratulations on your triumphant advancement.
Woo I-5!! Way to go!
Thank you. I will have to see if Moe becomes an npc in Galaxy at War now, who knows my Inquisitor; after all, the man...clone...whatever, has no mates.
So when does the next duel take place?
It's up. Kahn_Iceay and Ktala, begin!
Aaaah, a classical battle ground. I loved Hoth, though. Good choice. Geonosis will be fine, too. I am sure. CanÂ´t wait to see where I will duel.
I fought in the arena during the Knights tournament, it was fun but I am hoping for something more exotic this time around.
By the way, is it odd that even though I am fighting for the EUC I find myself rooting for the RPF a lot?
Because we're that awesome.
Go! Ktala Go!
~trembles with anticipation~
I love reading Ktala's posts, like a good book they make me forget my surroundings and pull me into the world she is describing.
~sits back and eagerly awaits more~
You're not the only one.
Some good descriptions and usage of environment going on, and you two seem to be managing quicker frequency of posting than Kev' and myself in the first round.
Formidable fighters, you guys!
yea... the writing's good but... *winces*
*decides to say nothing else*
we ARE reading the same thing, aren't we?
I think so.
i suppose the odds of it being different are pretty slim...
?So Ms. Pathetic. Why don't you run along? You're out classed here, you can't even win over yourself how can you dare dream to attain victory over me hmm? Run along, wallow in the sad existence that you have. Realize what you are, and hell, maybe one day, You'll be a worthy opponent for me. But as it is, you're like a lame dog, best left to wither and die. But remember, Pathetic. Even a lame dog can snap at its master, and when it does. They get put down.?
Now THAT is Dun MÃ¶ch!
I donÂ´t know.
I've seen better.
IMO good verbal Dun Moch is more subtle, and is delivered constantly over the course of a fight. I have seen books (don't recall which, maybe the Bane ones) describe Dun Moch as a tricky thing to master, and if not used well just serves to anger an opponent and fuel their rage.
Kind of like Vader vs Luke in RotJ, Vader used Dun Moch but it didn't work to his advantage. Luke was not demoralized by it, but enraged. And look what happened to Vader.
The words used by Kahn wouldn't demoralize, nor necessarily even anger an opponent. There is nothing personal in them that would hit home and strike to his opponents heart and leave a lasting impact in her preformance.
To me they are just ranting insults from one fighter to the other (an unecessarily long winded rant at that), and though they may have the intention of demoralizing the opponent there is nothing to suggest that IC that would be the reaction of Ktala's character. Based on how her character seems to have been played so far, my initial thought was that the character would brush it off as nothing more than a tantrum by a frustrated opponent.
Well D1 the fact that her simply being called Lady Sith earlier had the reaction of: ""SITH!!" She spat out, using the foul word as if it were a curse being uttered." That's a clear in character marker that being called that is something that effects her character. And while any normal person might not noticed that a person trained to noticed reactions to words, and actions would.
And in reality its less Dun MÃ¶ch and more general psychological warfare, Dun MÃ¶ch isn't a course at the Academy, but psychological warfare is. And to the point of the boomerang effect, He's hoping to demoralize her, as killing her isn't necessary to complete the IC mission he's on, but he's not an idiot, and does understand it may just make her angry and attack him.
And Sith-I-5, thanks for the complement.
I donÂ´t think that it is psychological warfare, in any way. The words actually show a lot of weakness. Which is why I donÂ´t consider it Dun Monch, either. It can make some good opportunity for roleplaying, though. Actually a Sith would be perfect for such a situation, now.
I must say I had expected this tournament to be different. Not better or worse, just different.
Then my fav-fights are still to come.
Now I'm saying you're wrong LordT, or that having your own opinion is wrong, but I have to disagree. Psychological Warfare is defined as "The planned use of propaganda and other psychological actions having the primary purpose of influencing the opinions, emotions, attitudes, and behavior of hostile foreign groups in such a way as to support the achievement of national objectives." at least by the U.S. Department of Defense. To me thats pretty similar to what I did, I used something, words, aimed to have a psychological effect. so to me its Psychological Warfare, in my opinion at least.
