"Yes, we might as well get that while we're at it. After that, we can target the Green Cog twice and the Orange Cog once to make the clock stay where it is and get that second weapons upgrade."

I attack the Dark Grey Clock Cog from the Back Row with my Briar Bow.

Hybros brandished Zoot's Reaper. It was due for another upgrade, so he attacked the Orange Cog from the front row.

Battle of the Clock Round Four
Docken v. Dark Gray Cog - Special Damage Scared
Guts v. Dark Gray Cog - Damage (-3)
Hybros v. Orange Cog - Hit (31) (No Assassination)

Green Cog v. Docken - Scared
Light Gray Cog v. Guts - (-3)

The battle continues.  Docken tries to fire a shot at the cog, which twists out of the way, but is too afraid to approach Docken.  Guts is smashed backwards by the Dark Gray Cog, and the Light Gray Cog comes at him from behind and shreds his robes, bloodying his back.  The clocks hands twirl and then ding with excitement.  Each hero feels their weapon grow a little more comfortable in their hands.

Hybros attacked the Orange Cog again, from the front row.

He noticed that Docken had retrieved his bedroll somehow, as if he had just wished it there. If that was possible, and if this were a dream... hmm...

Guts attacks the green cog, and says over his shoulders to the others:

"If you guys want to get more stuff, I can attack alone, while both of you get things."

Same battle order.

Battle of the Clock Round Five
Docken v. Green Cog - Miss Aim (-10)
Guts v. Green Cog - Miss Steal (+2 gold)
Hybros v. Orange Cog - Hit (31) (Assassination)

Dark Gray Cog v. Docken - Scared
Light Gray Cog v. Guts - (-3)

The battle continues.  Docken fires a measly shot at the Green Cog, which shatters the arrow when it hits it.  Guts cannot get close to the Green Cog, but finds two gold in his pocket all the same!!  Hybros lands on the spinning Orange cog and rams Zoot's Reaper into it.  Living up to it's name, the weapon lodges deeply in the cog, and the cog stops spinning and plummets to the ground.  Hybros dives off and rolls at the last possible moment as the Light Gray Cog whacks Guts on the back of the head, forcing his face into the floor.  The clock chimes once and all the cogs stop spinning for a split second (-10).  This was not what the heroes had predicted.  What had gone wrong?

Hybros ripped his scythe from the cog as it exploded. 'A leaf from the book of the Copper Fox', he noted with approval. Time was speeding up, back to normal. Perhaps Hybros had become more immersed in the dream, less connected to his body in the real world. His mind, so sluggish a few moments ago, caught up with him. He pondered the reason for the delay, but turned his attention to the battle. Why had the clock turned back to one?

"Eh... I think that when removed from the system of cogs, a cog destroyed will take back the number of hours that we hit it with. The orange cog turned the clock ahead one hour for each time we targeted it, and we did so four times, eheh... now, the time should have been five, but since I destroyed it, the clock took back four hours. I am afraid that my... abilities will add a factor of unpredictability if I am right."

He turned to Guts.

"How would you have me proceed? Eheh..."

"Hmmm, I guess you must be right. Hybros, go for the green cog with me, Docken, take the Dark gray cog. This should cause the cogs to take some damage, and we might be able to pick up the Weapon Upgrade after."

Guts attacks the Green Cog from the front row.


Same battle order.

"Are you sure? Two targeting Green and one targeting Dark Grey should move the clock an hour forwards to 2 o'clock, which deals Damage to all of us. Would it not be better to find out what the Light Grey Cog does?"

"Mmm, no, actually, I had thought that the Dark Grey Cog turned the clock forwards two hours instead of three. My mistake. :blush:

Battle of the Clock Round Six
Docken v. Dark Gray Cog Cog - Damage (Scared)
Guts v. Green Cog - Special Damage
Hybros v. Green Cog - Damage (-3)

Light Gray Cog v. Docken - Scared

The battle continues.  Docken dodges out of the way as a cog ruts the ground he stood upon.  The Green Cog flies up to Guts and starts to ring in his ear.  The startled and frightened Rogue feels himself involuntarily stumbling backwards.  Hybros tries to save his friend, but the cog smashes into his stomach (-3).  The hands whirl forward and the clock tower bongs loudly eleven times.

While Guts talks, he turns the clock to 5 o'clock, and throws his Throwing Knife at the Green Cog.

Battle of the Clock Round Seven
Hybros - Retrieves a Grand Potion
Docken - Uses Grand Potion on Hybros
Guts v. Green Cog - Steal (+2 Gold) (+2 for last time [did not add it, sorry])

Dark Gray Cog v. Hybros - (-3)
Light Gray Cog v. Docken - Scared

The battle continues.  Hybros imagines and Grand Potion, and suddenly it is in his hand.  Docken shoves his down Hybros' throat as Guts stabs at the Cog, which dodges but flings two gold coins at Guts, which seemingly appear out of no where.  The Dark Gray Cog flies at Hybros.  The hands of the clock whirl and land at 9 o'clock, and all the cogs make a horrid grinding sound.
