The pirate commander, no longer shaken, manages to duck in time out of the way of Zax's arrows.
Rabbit swiftly advances over the ice and the captain manages to somehow make the inflated kirby drink his healing potion. Kurt then proceeds to float up and away.
Jeremy's machop for a moment seems somewhat puzzled at Jeremy's order, eyeing the sea of ice separating him from the ship. Then he notices a large barrel used in the barricade nearby. Despite his small size, the pokemon lifts it with clear ease above his head and turns toward the catapult.MACHOP!
-The wooden projectile flies in an arc and crashes with the weakened size engine, resulting in a mess of wood splinters and bent metal!
Back in the docks, Kong channels his belt's powers into himself, while Pha loses her conscioness as her wound keeps bleeding.This must be some kind of curse, it won't stop if we don't close it properly!
-says the nearby guard, desesperately drawing more clean bandages and trying to patch Pha up.-We need more help here!
The two nearby militias step up and try to help to close the bandages, but they end up messing up as much as they help. The rest of the town defenders however seem too busy keeping their pressure on the pirates. The bombard crew finishes reloading another shot and starts taking aim, while the ship itself is filled with arrows. One of the front pirate drops into the water from the rain of projectiles, and the others seem to start wavering when they realize how few of them are left and they have no more siege, while the bombard aims at them.What is that kind of looks suposed to mean?-
roars the pirate commander-We don't need no stiking catapults to finish this now that we can get close and personal! DROP THE PLANK AND MAKE THOSE ELVES AND ELF LOVERS AND APES AND FAERIES TASTE COLD STEEL!"
The pirates roar in return and four of them advance and position the plank connecting the ice and ship, and their commander is the first to step on it and advance. The improvised contraption cranks and bends but holds. Firmly holding his glaive with both hands, he fixes in eyes on Rabbit and swings the large polearm.
That's some deadly weapon you have, but doesn't look like much. Once I take it, I'm gonna use your skull to give it the look it deserves!
The serrated blade hungrily cuts trough the power armor and reaches Rabbit's flesh under it, before discharging a painful jolt of disruptive energy. The space pirate can see his oponent is also hurt by his own weapon as some blood sips from his hands while they firmly hold it.
The remaining pirates advance trough the plank, one geting enough to engage the captain in melee (he manages to dodge out of the way), the others drawing their javelins and throwing them at Kurt, clearly trying to take advantage of his weakened state. He's pretty high tough, so they miss... Except for one, flying right at its target despite the distance. Just as it looks like it will take the Kirby out of the sky once more, it's suddenly broken in half by an intercepting arrow from Zax!
Saving his companion however distracts the veteran warrior enough time for an oportunistic pirate to run over the plank and take an extraordinary leap, covering the distance between the two in record time. Swinging his halberd in mid-air, it slices Zax across the chest.Situation
