OMG. So, I completely forgot to keep abreast of the mini. Ugh. Bad Rhovaniel! Any chance you can use a latecomer to help find Harrgath? (I was wondering where he was, his absence on the boards is very noticeable)

Only 50%? As the unfashionably late Ranger, I arrive, slightly out of breath from running to catch up to you guys, ready to make up for my absence by wading head first into battle! 

 The write-up seems to indicate that reps are whatever you usually do. In Karate, one punch is one rep, and same for kicks, but that feels a little easy... what would you guys recommend?

Driven by her fury at herself for not being there when her fellow rangers needed her the most, Rhovaniel arrived just in time to join the battle. She swung left and right, high and low, kicking when she could. 300 blows she dealt as an opening volley. Finding herself in a precious moment of calm in the midst of battle, she surveyed the compound. They were just over halfway to the cage, to freeing Father Christmas - and finding Rurik Harrgath. She sighed. Already weary, what more could she do, but wade once more into battle?

 

Sorry, it's been a while since I indulged in a bit of narrative. Anyway, 300 punches and kicks (mostly punches, because kicks are still my weakness) tonight. Can I count any blocks I practise, like an upper rising block (one arm raises to shield the face, theory being you are knocking a fist away, the starts out extended and comes back to rest on the hip) or outside block (one arm starts out high, comes down to shield the chest, the other starts extended and comes back to the hip again). If not, I'll just count the punches and kicks tomorrow, but I do need to practise these so just wondering.

 I'm planning to get in at least another 300 tomorrow morning. Come on Rangers, just 40% left to do. We can do this! For Rurik. For Father Christmas. (who's gonna deliver our presents, if we don't free him?? :o )

Pretty much I think the Rangers just caused Christmas to be cancelled (maybe his reindeer will save Father Christmas though). Aw well, I guess we dust ourselves off and get ready to fight another day.:)

 

 

It's 9 am here, so we still have a few hours, I'll put in some kicks and punches this morning.

Week 4: The Rangers fought as hard as they could, valiantly they strove with demon horde, and yet they seemed to move to slow to help the man in Red fur. As time grew near they thought for sure they had failed, when from the midst of the Rangers an unseen hero flung a demon at the cage, bending the bars ever so slightly. The man in red stirred, with a glint in his eye he started to laugh. Loki looked out from his tower within the stronghold, beginning to prepare some further magic. However, the man in Red simply laughed harder, touched his finger to his nose and *poof* he disappeared. Loki's screams of Rage echoed through the land. He flung his arms over the battle and everything seemed to freeze. Though he spoke to the entire Ranger Corps, each seemed to hear his voice directed specifically at them. "You have failed. You were always a failure. Your efforts are in vain, as they always have been. Do you really think your feeble attempts to get healthy will ever actually work? It's over. you will never win and you will never see your beloved leader again." As he began to laugh, the Rangers began to sag, and knees started to buckle. The Horde began to attack, and wounds began to form. However, bells in the distance began to ring, first faint, and then stronger. From the North a Red light appeared, then began to get stronger. A deep, strong happy laugh began to overpower Loki's high, wicked and cruel laugh. From a sleigh Father Christmas shouted, "Rangers, thank you so much for freeing me. Many will be happy tonight thanks to your kindness to me. I cannot free you from Loki's spell, but I can tell you how to break it. Simply don't give up, and his power over you will be broken."

     We didn't defeat the horde completely, but all is not lost. Santa has been freed. Our task this week is two-fold, finish the combat feat till we hit 7000 reps to defeat the horde, and, more importantly. NOT TO GIVE UP. If you do anything, even one little thing, towards meeting your goals for week 4, Loki's spell will be broken. Continue to log combat reps on week 3's column, and when you do something towards your goals this week, go to the spreadsheet and in the column asking "Did you give up?" Write NO! in all caps with that exclamation point. We can do this, just don't quit!

Whew that was close, glad Christmas wasn't cancelled:lol: I said I would do some more kicks, and had every intention of doing so. Then went down to do my workout, and was trying to hurry because of the 1,0000 things to do, and totally forgot.:redface-new: Next week I don't really plan on doing much challengy stuff, but I should have time for some kicks and punches.

Epilogue: With encouragement from the man in red, the Rangers shook off Loki's malaise and got back to the fight. The remaining demons had begun to rally, but as each Ranger stubbornly refused to give up, the tides of battle turned. The demons began to fall, then to run, but they did not escape. Loki began to seethe as yet again the Rangers thwarted his plan. He seemed to prepare some further mischief, but as more and more Rangers broke free of his spell his power seemed to wane. By the time the last stood to fight, he found himself surrounded, and alone. It was then the Rangers noticed someone they had not seen for some time. As Loki grew weaker, so too had his hold over Harrgath. As Loki attempted to flee Harrgath stood to his full height and said, "Not Today."   Looking at the sky he bellowed "Heimdal, Now!" and a shaft of light came down from the heaveans, and with a resigned "oh no" Loki was gone. "The Allfather can deal with him, like he should have before this." Looking around, Harrgath cracked one corner of his mouth up about a millimeter. "Thanks for not giving up on me Rangers. Lets go home."

Late to the party.  My bow string actually broke.  You know how hard it is to find a replacement string for a recurve bow during Christmas with no internet!?  So my kids and I did punches and kicks, and I counted chopping wood, and I finally got my string, I put arrows in the wind.  Sorry I was late!

No worries, it got done, and that's what counts.

Alas as The Wolf was battling the demon horde he took an armored gloved directly to his unprotected visage. Quickly the medics rushed him off for emergency surgery!

 

Hey everyone! Sorry I wasn't able to contribute more to the combat challenge, I was scheduled last week to get a check-up for my septoplasty surgery. As it turns out they scheduled it 3 days later, which unfortunately knocked me out of commission for quite awhile. I'm still recovering but am steadily getting better and can't wait for the 8th!
