Sen is conceptually good, but limits herself to something close to River's level. She stays on the defensive to start but adds in carefully timed attacks as she gets a sense of River's fighting style. River can probably get some hits in but nothing decisive.

Permalink

Means she's having fun.

She tries harder, of course.

Permalink

Sen keeps to the same level so any improvements River makes are reflected in how well the bouts go.

Permalink

That's a bit motivating, but, well, she actually really enjoys being challenged, and when she notices this asks Sen to step it up.

Permalink

Sen is happy to oblige and steps things up a level periodically as they continue.

Permalink

Excellent.

She does tired out eventually, though - mostly mentally.

Permalink

Sen calls for a break when she notices River getting tired and conjures up a snack and some drinks.

Permalink

"Thanks," she says, settling in to investigate the snacks and drinks.

Permalink

There are crackers, fruits, nuts, and granola. The drinks are water and a number of types of fruit juice, some carbonated some not.

Permalink

She's most interested in the carbonated fruit juices, and in fruit and nuts and granola. She ignores the crackers.

Permalink

Sen nibbles at a bit of everything, she personally sticks to water.

Permalink

"What next?" she asks after one mouthful of fruit and nuts.

Permalink

"Well, we could spar more the way we were... I could also shift into having the body and equipment of one or more of the guards and we could do more training like that. I'll train you for as long as you want, as you are you're much better than the guards probably are but... there's a lot of them and they're armed so I worry for you."

Permalink

"Practicing against more opponents might help?"

Permalink

"I can easily do that then." Sen's features bulk out as her lithe build morphs to something stockier and also a bit taller. "Or did you mean practicing against more opponents at once?" There's a slight echoing quality to the last sentence and Sen steps both left and right leaving two identical bodies standing in front of River.

Permalink

Grin. "More at once, but bigger works too."

Permalink

"Let's start with two and go from there." Sen engages, when it seems like River is ready. She's fighting at a somewhat lower level than before.

Permalink

River - 

Does really, exceptionally well against multiple opponents actually.

Permalink

Sen is glad, she adds more slowly working up towards ten or wherever River reaches her limit whichever comes first.
