Round 3 - Series 3: Bean (834n - 2/0) vs. Black Sparrow (0/2)
Bean, our undefeated physical martial artist, is battling Black Sparrow our physical mistress of the whips, in a battle to determine if Bean will enter the Semi-finals with an extra stat point or not. Both use the same attack and so are exceptionally good at defending against each other. Get ready for a fight!
1 - Sparrow cracks her whips and Bean puts his staff in front of them! The whips tangle against his staff, and he twirls the staff to entertwine them. That yanks both whips out of Sparrow's hands! Bean calmly untangles the whips and throws them back to Sparrow.
2 - Bean launches his first attack, a deadly kick to the stomach! Sparrow deftly avoids the attack, sliding to the right and out of the way.
3 - Sparrow cracks her whips again, this time hitting Bean in the left leg, shredding his clothing and leaving a bloody mark! (5 damage). She pulls her whips back and licks the blood, while winking at Bean.
4 - Bean feigns an attack at Sparrow, and when she dodges again, he smacks his staff on her foot! (8 damage).
5 - Bean moves to swing his staff up to hit Sparrow in the chin, but she ducks him and cracks her whip around his arm. She yanks hard and his staff goes flying, to land at her feet. Sparrow calmly picks up the staff and tosses it back to Bean.
6 - Black Sparrow cracks her whips again and cuts Bean in his back when he reaches for his staff! (4 damage). This is met with assorted boos and cheers from the audience.
7 - Bean throws his staff to Sparrow, who catches it in surprise. He then kicks the staff, hard, so it rebounds in her face and then back to his hand! (11 damage). Sparrow seems stunned.
8 - Bean kicks Sparrow in the chest, and she falls backwards to the sand and doesn't get up.
Winner: Bean! Bean glows, heals, gains a stat point, and will be in our semi-finals.
Loser: Black Sparrow. Sparrow sits up and shakes her head to clear it. She waves off an ogre musician that had come out to help her up. The musician produces a ticket to the Gold Member Box Seat area, where free food and beverages of all kind await in air conditioned luxury.
Crossfire: "Thank you! That explains it very nicely, and in a language that someone other than a physicist can understand..."
