Combat Training [Open to all rebels]

Post by Prism on Sun Apr 13, 2014 5:54 pm

January 1st Morning 


After what happens with the riots Prism had planned to put the rebels through a number of combat training that way if anything were to happen again they would have more ponies out there helping.
He had got a number of training weapons for ponies to use so they can get an idea what weapons they liked to use. There wasn't a large choice but there was the basics stuff.
Prism picked up one of the swords and started to practice with a sword in his hooves and mouth till some of the others showed up for a lesson.

Scint was in a rare state of reservation, with his eyes stooping to the earth before him. He didn't know what to say. he didn't know how Prism would react. just how long ago did the lawful captain have every intent on shoving him in prison? he's heard from Silvern, if it were up to Prism, Lance would've still been in that cell.

Scint has called Captain Prism a series of names, poked fun at his authority... and now here he was, attempting to be humble... Scint didn't know which was worse; the fact that he honestly believed Prism might still be willing to teach him any combat training, or that he wasn't sure if he was doing this out of truly wanting to mend meeting prism off the wrong foot, or out of necessity. the more Scint thought about it, the more the latter sounded more accurate.

Lance's self esteem had been crumbling with every step, traversing over thin ice with his mentality crushing beneath his hooves, waiting for the shatter that would finally swallow him whole... perhaps that would have been preferable, to this.

with barely any noise, enough to make even Shadowstrike proud, Scint had stood perhaps a meter from behind Prism's practice, his ears stooped low. one shuffling of a front hoof along the cavernous dirt later, Scint finally worked up the courage, and acknowledged the Captain before him. "Ca-...Captain Prism?"

He was in the middle of his combat exercises with his mouth when he heard a voice behind him and he stopped mid swing and turned to look at lance. Looked at him for a moment then took the weapon out of his mouth. "Go a pick one of the weapons off the rake and no magic, I want to see how you use it" He said pointing over to the weapons rake with a number of different training weapons on there.

Scint's depressed look shifted instantly to that of confusion, not expecting Prism to be so... unquestioning. Scint turned his head to the rack, and back to Prism. taking a moment to process what just actually happened, he nodded and turned to trot towards the rack, exclaiming, "No magic, right, got it." Lance couldn't figure out which weapon to remove. normally his weapons would've been his Aegis, or his Martyr... the closest objects here were a spear, and a relatively small shield... the latter not really counting as a weapon, and the former bearing little resemblance to his weapon of choice, in terms of combat use. but it was close enough.

Scint had to stop himself from levitating the spear closer, instead moving closer and sliding his hoof down the length of the spear, looping his hoof around the grip, and using the butt of the spear as a replacement for the fourth leg he used to hold it. he trotted back to Prism, confessing, "I've... got something of a conjuration I use a lot, and looks a lot like this spear... but I think I never really hold it the same way twice, much less without magic. I just... hold it as it fits the moment, I guess..."

Prism watched as Scint took the spare and watch it as he held the spare as best he could. Once he had explained something about his own spell he walked past Scint and went over to the weapons rack and picked up a spear as well.

Resting the spear on his neck so that the top of the spear was point out. "Spears are more heavy at their top end, but just because the top end has the part that will cut through skin don't mean its the only deadly end," with a small movement of his neck and hoof he swung the spear around his neck at grate speed and then stopping it dead with the bottom of the spear point out

"This end is soiled wood normally made out of oak or other hard woods hitting somepony in the right place with speed will knock them clean out" Prism then jumped up and started to swing the spear around his neck using his hooves to move the spear faster and faster to the point were it would very easily kill or severally hurt someone if it hit them. Then stopping it dead once more when he had to go back onto three hooves again keeping the blade end pointing out "A spear needs space to work and is designed to keep your opponent away from you, because up close it is unless. Hard to master and only really skills learnt and practiced by the Sisters elite guard."

He then looked over Scint as he rested the spear by point it up and using it as his fourth leg "So will this be your weapon of choose?"

Lance watched Prism handle the spear with a level of awe. of course he's seen pole-like objects move in such a manner before... heck, his Martyr is almost constantly spinning. but not by his hooves. always in some grip of magic. Even if Lance COULD handle a spear through his own magic... he was fairly certain he couldn't by his own physique. and seeing what Prism just did... kinda made him want to change that.

Scint's horn flickered to life as the Martyr appeared behind him, gracefully mimmicking what movement Scint made with the spear from a distance, like an oddly shaped puppet on a ghostly string. what movement Scint made, however, was nothing more than turning his spear slowly from a makeshift crutch of a fourth hoof to as close to an imitation of Prism's stance as possible, though arguably off. "Like I said, this spear's the closest thing on the rack to my favorite conjuration. it won't just give me another weapon to fight with, it just might give me a proper way to fight with the Martyr." The conjuration nearly instantly faded out of the air in a miniature burst of light, certianly gone faster than it came. "I can't imagine any better fitting weapon."

Prism gave a look of anger at lance when he got out his Martyr or what ever he called it. "Next time your horn glows, I strike it with what ever weapon I am holding. Trust me you don't want to find out how that feels" He said with a commanding tone as he remembered his father doing the same to him when he was shown how to fight and the pain that come with a horn being hit when a spell is being used.

Once he had made his point clear he went back to his lesson "A spear isn't just a weapon its an extension of your body every movement that you make should be to attack or defend yourself" Prism then he took the spear into his mouth and span around swinging the spear around at great speed. Once he was facing Scint once again he then started to move the spear in his mouth. No were need as skilled with his moves and was more to preposition the spear then attack. 

After he finished he rested the spear once more "Remember ever part of you can be used and freeing up your hooves means you are more stable with four hooves on the ground and have more movement, but I don't expect mouth combat from you at this point in time" Prism then moved went into a ready stance.

"For now we are going to do some practice moves that helps learn movements and how to hold the weapon with out worrying about speed or attacking. We will move slow so do as I do."

upon being called out on his use of magic, hence realizing his own slip-up, Scint responded in a tone of alarm. "S-sorry!" Scint watched in more awe as Prism may as well have been showing off. When Prism was finished, Scint once again gave his best imitation of Prism's "ready stance." humorously, it left Lance feeling more clenched up than free, but he silently hopes it was just his own imagination. He waited for Prism's next movement, hoping it would indeed be slow enough for Scint to follow. "The ol' pony-see-pony-do, right?"

Lance didn't even notice Dawn enter the room; his whole focus was on not toppling while trying to mimic Prism.

Fear was having a decent time exploring. It's probably the last time he'll get a chance to, as he was mean't to leave on his first rebel job in a day or two.

To be honest, he had no idea if he was even allowed here, but that didn't stop him. Nobody needed to know that anyway.
That includes you, you nugget.

Though, when he passed by the training room, he noticed a familiar face. Still quite undisciplined by the look of it. The good ol' Captain... someone was with him too, along with that other pony that went in ahead of him.
He debated heading in. On one hoof, he might learn something. On the other, he was pretty skilled in his crossbow, knife and hind-claws. He wasn't interested in showing off as much as he was wanting to test his skills any way he could.

He entered a minute after Dawn, he was a mercenary so he didn't need to follow any orders. But he secretly wanted Prism to make things interesting in some way. After all, that's the whole reason he went in.
"Zdorovo, droog!" He said towards Lance. The one who saw fit to break into his cell for a nice chat. He then turned to try and also gain Prisms attention, "Good morning, tovarishch!"

Prism looked over to who was talking and he stopped the bat pony that had joined their ranks with the right payment and dawn as well. He look back to Scint "Keep practicing" he said before walking over to the other

"Are you two want to improve your skills or just wanting time to practice, if so there is room if you are wanting your own space. Just two rules no magic or flying even if you are not taking part." He said to both of them

Lance nodded to Prism and continued alternating between two techniques; one offensive, one defensive. a forward lunge, sliding a hoof forward with his spear in the other to cover more ground than any sword could achieve. a step back and shifting the spear in a figure-8 motion, meant to intimidate and keep an opponent beyond sword's reach... yet still within reach of the prior forward lunge.

of course Scint didn't actually know what he was doing, nor why he was doing it. he was just repeating what Prism told him.

((OOC  😉 ))

also he was partially afraid of acknowledging the batpony on the room. partially because of fear of provoking Prism by not following orders. partially because he only already knew the batpony because he he didn't follow orders before.

Fear looked around, nowhere to really test his aim, so he decided to join in with close-ranged training.
He went over to the weapon rack and browsed the choices. Spears were familiar to him, but not something he'd use by regular choice. Halberds were a different case, they can do what a spear does and be swung horizontally, at the cost of being way more top heavy. He took a halberd from the rack and got a feel for it, he could make this work.

He didn't do anything yet though, he simply went back over to Prism, still clearly thinking about how to exactly use it. "Khorosho, this will do fine." He said as he stopped just next to Prism.

Prism looked at what the choice the bat pony had picked out. Going by the sort of weapons he had seen and going by his style of fight he through would pick something smaller. "Not very subtle, would of through you pick something smaller"

He looked at the weapon, it wasn't one that he had really trained with as was not of a combat weapon. "This weapon normally only used by earth ponies as it takes a lot of power and strength to get the simplest of combat swings. You sure you want to try and weald this weapon?"

Still walking on eggshells around Prism's bad side, Scint kept a lid on his muzzle and kept practicing with his spear. literally. He was wearing an actual muzzle now.

"Da, I may be younger than yourself, but everyone has their own tricks." He said with a grin

He looked over at Lance, who seemed to be doing everything in his power to stay silent, which must be hard for him. "I see you are being quite strict on my fellow trainee, though putting a muzzle on him is a bit much is it not?" He said, unsure how the muzzle actually came to be but it could have been added whilst he was browsing his selection of weapons.
"Proceed as you wish, tovarishch." He said after a few moments.

Prism looked over to Scint once this was pointed out "Were in Celestia did he get that from." He then shouted over to Scint "Will you get the stupid thing off your face!" He gave him a look that clearly said he was not impressed.

He then turned to the bat pony. He knew that Fear would have some idea how to use weapons "Well How about you show me how you plan to use this weapon and remember no flying" Prism then stepped back to give him some space. So he could see what Fear would do and watch how he fights.

Lance made a quick salute and a muffled "yes sir!" and without untying the strands at the back, scint simply spat out the muzzle like he would an olive seed, as the muzzle rebounded off the floor and landed Celestia knows where. he then continued with his awkward training.

"One moment, I must become familiar with the weapon." After saying that, Fear observed the weapon and constantly adjusted where his grip was. He took simple swings from left to right, he readjusted his grip afterwards when he thought necessary.

Whilst Fear was figuring things out, he would have likely given Prism plenty of time to check up on Lance.

(((And would likely be ready to show off once i figure out how to write down a technique xD)))

Prism watch has Lance sent the muzzle flying across the room "Can't you take anything serious for 5mins." He was a little angry but trying to remain calm, as Lance wasn't military so laying into him like he would a new recruit wouldn't be the best idea. So for now Lance was save from a good tell off.

After talking to Lance he looked to the bat pony he was still working out the grip. "Why is everyone picking the hardiest thing to use" he through to himself, he had trained years with basic weapons before moving onto advanced weapons to try and join the Royal Guard, hopefully they will get the idea that something basic would be better. "Looks like you may have found the grip, only thing is when it's moving or spinning the centre of gravity isn't where you normally hold it so you will be moving your grip a lot."

Lance tilted his head and offered a confused look at his remark of his unseriousness, "but... that was me being serious!" when Prism turned away Scint moved onto a coptoer-like motion: he stood on his hind-legs and spun the spear above his head with both front hooves, completely missing Prism's lecture on the center of gravity and all that. "Heheh, it's just like spinning my flute! except heavier... and thicker... and bigger... and doesn't sound cool when you blow into it..."

"Hmm, more so with this, than the spear." Fear said, finally satisfied on how he'll adjust and maintain grip of the weapon he held.

Fear took up a ready stance, however, rather than have the head of the halberd in front of him, he held the weapon in a reversed position as a last minute decision.
The reason was clear when he took the first swing.

The natural weight of the weapon made the initial swing slow, but it would have been slower if he had to bring the halberds head behind him. Fear planned on letting the weight of the weapon speed up his strikes over time, so his first swing lead into a complete 360 rotation, which continued into a second 360 rotation. As he was doing a third 360 rotation, he suddenly raised the halberd above him and kept the already begun motion going by spinning the weapon with both hooves, bringing the weapon lower and making a fast swings which ended up dragging him around in a circle with it so he could keep up the weapons speed as he brought it back for either another swing, to bring it back above his head to maintain the weapons speed, or to maintain his all important hind-hoof-work. He continued this pattern for a few more swings before ending it with a solid overhead strike that made a loud clang on the floor.

The result was and consistent barrage of attacks the was mean't to overwhelm the enemy. Though it was very flawed in more than a couple ways, as skilful as it may have looked.
Fear was visibly exhausted by keeping up such a barrage of attacks, which is likely what drove him to end his attack with the overhead strike. His heavy panting would easily be heard as he brought the halberd back towards him.
"Boʐye moy... That was... troublesome to keep going... " he said, taking heavy breaths in-between.

Prism watched as Fear used the weapon. Making note of how he was using it. He could tell it was wasn't easy for him to get the spinning going and that was normal. These weapons were not made to do this yes it did give a powerful attack at the end put he would of been better using a spear.

"Well done, if we ever have to put on a short show I be sure to get you to do that, but I am sure you noticed it took you time to build up and there was plenty of times when you was left open to attack with no way of defending yourself and look at yourself now." Prism shock his head. "Give that here," he said as he took the weapon off Fear.

"This isn't a spear you can spin it around, short swing maybe, but you stab with it. The axe part you don't use it unless you can do a short swing with it. There is also this little trick, don't move" he said has slid the weapon next Fear. "Say your attack is blocked you are now wide open for an attack and it will mean taken the hit or losing your weapon. Now if it happens aim the weapon to the ground to the side like this next to the leg. No way you can swing and do any damage but you can do this." With that Prism jump to the side like if was avoiding an attack then with all his strength he pulled the weapon back, but he had hooked the weapon over Fear's leg about half way up.

If Fear wasn't ready he found be flat on the floor. "And remember your attack will most likely use their over hoof to hold there weapon. This weapon is a stabbing and hocking weapon, don't try to spin and chop or you will be dead."

Fear sensed Prism's action before he managed to actually affect him, as Prism was pulling the weapon to him, Fear quickly unhooked his leg and did a simple side roll. Afterwards, he stood up like he had been before, like he didn't just use up a lot of stamina using the Halberd.

"The idea tovarishch, was to use the weapons speed to consistently strike a target. Though my old training with such things has clearly dwindled since I last decided to attempt it." Fear said as he unholstered his Crossbow, and though it was made of metal, it wasn't even reflecting the light of the room.
He took a quick glance around the training room, and spotted a roughly put together training dummy mean't for melee practice. Without hesitation, he quickly raised his crossbow towards his target and fired, not taking a second to adjust his aim. The bolt would find it's new home, planted in the dummy's head. (That was just a bucket placed on top of it)

"This, is where my true skill shines at it's best." he said as he holstered his crossbow again and turned to face Prism. "But I digress, continue."

Prism watches the bat ponies skills with the cross bow, "Very good, reminds me of the skills of a different bat pony I once knew." then then turned and look back to Fear.

"I don't think the Halberd is the weapon for you, as doing that attack takes time to build up and you are more build for speed, you want light weapons once for quick attacks more hit and run then having to swing a weapon to build up an attack. Only time I would use a Halberd is when fighting with other that way they can cover you, or practice for years so you can do that with one swing."

Fear nodded, all things considering. Prism wasn't wrong, to use it like that would take the time he wasn't willing to use.
His preferred style was his crossbow, and maybe a short weapon for close-up encounters. His own blade was a curved dagger, primarily mean't to block and parry if somebody got to close. Though he hasn't practiced in a while either, he hasn't had anything get close to him until very recently.

"You are correct, in fact I do have something I wish to remind myself of now that it has been mentioned." He said as he drew his curved blade.
"Care to assist me in practice, tovarishch? Though If you wish to give advice to the other trainee first, I can wait." He said with a polite bow.

Prism smiled, at lest he already knew what he should use. "Go and pick out training weapons that match yours and use the dummy's. I will have word with Scintillance and then we can spar if you wish."

With that he left fear and went over to Scintillance to see him still doing exercises he was show. "You want to try using it ageist an appoint and see how the moves you have been doing works in practice?" He asked Lance as he picked up a training sword from the rack.

Scint was startled when Prism spoke his name while he was spinning the spear. in response, he lost his grip and pretty much hit himself in the head with it. After picking up the spear he looked at prism with one closed eye and rubbed the back of his neck. "If you mean to spar against me I'm thinking you're off to a winning start, Pris. em. Scint added the "m" hastily, realizing he almost already messed up. he exhaled, and got into a read position with the spear, facing Prism. "I'd ask you to hit me with everything you've got, but I guess we both know how well that'd turn out."

Prism did a half smile "If I did that you wouldn't learn. Now the spear is very much an attack weapon and using it to keep your enemy at a distance. So attack me and make sure I don't get in close." Prism stood ready with his sword in hoof waiting to see what lance would do. As he planned out a number of options in his head.

Scint spent more time thinking about his attack than he ever did with his martyr. He could've hooked his opponent's weapon away, he could've thrown his weapon in the air and pile drive it above prism, he could've thrown his Martyr to the side and ran the other before sandwitching Prism between bulk and blade... but he couldn't. no magic. it just didn't feel the same.

Keep your distance.

...

Scint spun his spear momentarily and swiftly broke the spin into a forward lunge, guessing that only the tip of the spear would reach beyond Prism's sword arm- except for the minor issue that he thrust the wrong side of the spear at Prism.

Prism watch lance has he spent time thinking about the attack and when he at last attacked he watch closely ready to act to defend, but watching him he could tell he ended the spin too soon and it was conferred when he saw the bottom end of the spear. Time to see he deal with this.

Prism didn't knock the weapon away but gaped hold of the end and started to try and pull it out of lances hooves. He was hopping he had a good hold of it or he was soon going to be weaponless.

oh, Scint had a good hold on the weapon alright. but Despite Scint's size, he wasn't exactly heavy, or perhaps his legs just didn't have the strength to hold him back, but he got yanked forward with the spear as Prism pulled. unplanned, but Scint always liked to improvise. He handled the swift movement of being pulled towards Prism as best he could so that Prism's face was barely an inch or three away from Scint's, and he pushed the spear down as much as he can; if Prism insisted on not letting go of the spear, he'd have to somehow push the spear up against Scint. in the "intimate" moment, Lance cheerfully chimed, "Sup!" and then quickly changed from pushing the spear down into forcing the non-sharp end of the spear up, releasing the "coiled" energy, as well as combining it with Prism's strength if he had been trying to continue holding onto the spear. the result would be the non-sharp part of the spear slapping Prism across the face, if it all worked out. of course Prism could weaken the impact by just giving Scint the spear after yanking him closer, or prevent the hit entirely if he moved his head backwards because he can clearly see the impact coming with Lances' face in the way.

Prism didn't need a weapon this close and the fact that Scintillance was fight him for it mean that he was too forces on using his a weapon and it had got to the point that a weapon would be unless and a spear more so. Prism just let go of the spear so it would hit the floor with Scintillance pulling on it.


Next Prism launched himself into Scintillance very soon after he said Sup, Prism had lifted Scintillance up and was doing his best to pin him to the ground he did feel the spear hit his side, but he easily shock it off.

as Scint's hooves left the ground, hirn horn sparked to life for a moment before he put it out, almost losing himself to his magic-wanting reflexes, with a mental not of "phewf, almost lost i-OOMPH! His thoughts cut as he landed on his back, now feeling as if all air that had previously settled in his chest had left him. Prism pinning him when he needed to breathe didn't help that situation.

"Ho-Khey..." Scint wheezed, making no effort to show he was breathless. he raised his right hoof, and flopped it to the side a few times. "I...I tap out... need a... breather... literally...

"Well done you are now dead" Prism said with his weight on top of scintillance. He couldn't help but enjoy it a little and hid side was a little sore where it was hit with the spear so he Scintillance suffer a little longer before he got up.

"You made a number of mistakes there. Don't try and take out your opponent in one hit dry to disable them move so if they are stronger or a better fighter." He said as he walked away

Prism's words rung in Scint's ears. barely able to move himself he lay there, with his eyes focused on the ceiling as Prism walked away. He mouthed the word, "...Disable." and pondered. Scint would likely remain there for a little while, plotting out like a machine, searching for options of how he would "disable" an enemy... any enemy, a winged pegasus, a magic-horned unicorn... a sure-footed Prism. and thought how he would defend himself from such n enemy that would disable him.

(Feel like I can cut in here now, get things going AGAAAAAAIIIIIIN)

"It seems the trainee needs time to think tovarisch, care to humour me with that duel?" Fear said with an amused tone. His weapon of choice from the training rack was shortsword, it was the closest match he could make to his usual combat weapon preference, a machete. Though it will be easier to move, he'll miss the blade heavy chops his usual weapon would do.

Fear took a closer position, away from anything that could get knocked over and waited Prisms decision.

Prism nodded "Of course" As he made his way to pick up his weapon that he had used to fight Lance. He could use more weapons but he always liked to use swords more then anything. Once picking it back up he was ready for a fight.

He knew this one would be easy, bat ponies were fast just like Pegasus and he was sure that Fear would be a good fighter being an assassin. "I am ready when your are" He said taking an aggressive stance, keeping his sword in his hoof for the moment.

"Ok..." Fear took a combat ready stance, holding his weapon in-front of him and then took a deep breath, locking eyes with Prism."Let's dance!" he said in an excited tone.

Fear then moved quickly towards Prism with the intention of locking blades, once their blades collided, he'd attempt to trip up his opponent and acquire his weapon.

Prism knew that the bat pony would be a lot better fighter going by the first encounter, so he was expecting a lot more.

Fear made the first move coming at him, he watch his movement and how he was holding the short sword. He had the reach and keep him a safe distance. When their swords hit Fear moved to lock blades with Prism. A high risk move and meant he wanted to get in as close as he could. Prism could easily guess what would come next as it's what he would do.

When the trip come he was ready and made sure he could switch it around. He push his sword down so his sword and Fears hilts locked and the only way for him to get it out would be to push away. Once they were locked he used his longer sword to try and force Fear out of tripping distance. It was now a battle of strengths.

Fear immediately backed off after his first plan failed, aware that it was unlikely he'd overpower Prism. It only took a moment for him to catch his breath, and he was ready to continue his merciless offense.

Fear charged at Prism again, attempting to attack him with very fast, hard to predict strikes. He also watched his target closely as he attacked, ready to dodge any attacks made by Prism should he see any odd body movement.
For the moment, the sword was his weapon, his body was his shield.
